"Ozume." Zaramu said, never breaking eye contact with Kiya, " Hold off right now, but be ready to use that technique if I say so. They might be getting the money."
Ozume looked at him warily, " So we get our money, I don't attack, and you're still stuck? What use is the money if you can't grab it? I'm not about to take my eyes off this one, or they'll pull something."
Zaramu raised an eyebrow, " He as a point you know." he said to Kiya "You could very weel be trying to lure him away from that girl. Free me first."

Kiya was hesiate at first, but she had no other choice. With one stomp of her foot, the rock returned back into the earth. "i am going to find ash. i'll be right back." then ran to find Ashlyn and found her helping some of her servants "Miss Wulf. Did all your money burn up?"

Ashlyn was actually not helping her servants, they were all out of the manor and heading home. Ashlyn was wandering through the hallways of her home and checking out the damage. At Kiya's approach, however, she couldn't help but snap the girl a nasty glare.

"I guess this is what I get for trying to help people." she said coldly, looking down yet another destroyed hallway. "My house gets burned down by some idiots hunting you, I try and help but nothing seems to work so I go to help my own people and I get no 'are you alright Ashlyn' or 'I'm sorry about your home Ashlyn'. As soon as you find me it's 'Miss Wulf, did all your money burn up?"

Ashlyn laughs, not a hint of warmth in it. "No you little whore, it didn't! You forget that he murdered several of my servants, lives that meant a lot to me! You forget he destroyed my home, a home I worked so damn hard on to make beautiful, a place I could look at and be proud of! But you don't care, do you? You just want money, like the sickly little girl you are."

She throws the briefcase with the 50,000 dollars she originally counted out for them at her. "THERE! TAKE YOUR MONEY AND GET OUT! I never want to see your filthy hide in what's left of my home ever again!"

Ashlyn storms away, shoving Kiya aside as she teleported to the back of her house, to her rooms where she could sit on a bay window overlooking the burned out gardens and cry.

Zaramu went and picked his sleeve up off the ground. He strapped it back on, and put back on his glove. Ozume saw him do this out of the corner of his eye. "You sure that's a good idea? Are you that confident that she'll give us the money?"
You could tell Zaramu was smirking, " To bleeding hearts like her, friends are everything. She would do anything if it meant we didn't harm her friend."

Kiya was shocked at first, then she just got mad. She thought about leaving the money, but Nemu's death wouldn't help any. So she pick up the briefcase and yelled back at Ashlyn as she walked off. "I'm sorry about the servants but that's the only thing i'm sorry for. This wasn't my fault. If you remember, YOU were the one that took us here. It was obivous that they would follow. Anyway, you Kai burn me up sometimes. You act like this house and the objects furnishing it are the most important things in the world. Well don't worry your little head, sweetie. I'm sure your daddy will dish out the cash to make you a house twice this big. But try living a day in my life. you wouldn't be able to last one. If you had the memories that i have,....." she was cut off when she teleported.
Kiya turned sharply and returned to the nemu and the others. She threw the briefcase now in front of Zaramu. "K, you have your money, now leave." she said darkly.

Zaramu picked up the briefcase, popped it open and counted the money. "Alright, it's all here. Let's go Ozume."
Ozume swallowed and wiped his mouth. "Alright." He walked away with Zaramu.
Zaramu and Ozume walked through the streets, briefcase in hand, heading for the house that hid The Ten's headquarters. "You sure Leader is going to be cool with us leaving the mark alive and just getting the money?"
Zaramu nodded. "He'll just kill the client. There'll be no one to complain then."
Ozume laughed. "That's leader for ya!"He quieted down after awhile. "She was the one right?"
Zaramu was quiet for a while."...yeah."
Ozume grinned, " You volunteered us for this job because anyone else would've killed her immediately, didn't you?"
Zaramu sighed, "Yeah."
Ozume started chuckling, " You made sure we did as much destruction as possible to show off how powerful the Ten were didn't you? Then you planted the idea that hiring the Ten would be beneficial to the Rebellion!"
Zaramu was starting to get angry. "I can do what I want."
Ozume finally started clapping his hands together like he was a little girl who had just found out something wonderful. " If The Ten are allied with the rebels and she's part of the rebels, that means you can protect her and make it look like you're just doing your job! YOU LURRRVVV HER! hahahahahaha!!!"
Zaramu stared daggers at Ozume, "I swear to god I'll take my mask off right now if you say another word."
"Whoa,whoa man..."said Ozume, " Take it easy. I'm sorry."
__________________________________________
Zaramu and Ozume reached a small house. It was one room with two beds,a table,some chairs, and a fireplace. Ozume started a fire in the fireplace when they got in, while Zaramu placed the briefcase under a bed. "When will the next entryway to HQ show up here?" questioned Ozume.
"Should be a few hours." said Zaramu, sitting on the edge of the bed.

Kiya let out a big sigh of relief as she watched them leave. Then walked over to Nemu. "You okay?"
Nemu nodded, "Ya, he just nicked me. I wonder if they were bluffing?"
"I don't know, and I know want to find out. Lets get out of here." Kiya started to walk towards the street.
"Wait. what about Miss Wulf. We must make sure she is okay."
Kiya stopped but didn't turn around. "She doesn't want to see us, and i don't want to see her. ever."
Nemu was shocked, "But she saved my life."
Kiya now turned around, "We just destroyed her house. I don't think its a good idea."
Nemu sensed that something had gone on between them. "Okay then, but at least, lets put out all the fires." She held out her arms up to the sky. "This is a trick i learned from a book." She shot a few bolts up into the air. Soon dark clouds starting to roll in and a big storm started up. The rain put out the last of the fire.
"I need a drink" kiya said as she glazed at the burnt house.

The two walked down the street, back to the city. They were both soaked but the rain felt good to their tired bodies. Soon they came upon a broken down old apartment building and enter it. they walked up 3 flights of stairs and arrived at a 1 room apartment. Nemu lit the furnace and looked around the room. It was dark with the paint on the wall pealing and the wooden floor unwept. There was two beds on one side of the room. The furnace, a small table, stove, an icebox (only big enough for 4 to 5 items) and a single sink on the other. In a closet, was a toilet and a tiny shower. Kiya took a beer from the icebox and fell on her bed, drinking it. Nemu sat at the table smoking a cig. “So, who was that guy you knew?”

Kiya grunted, “He was a boy I knew in the Gero-Gero. I was a sex slave and he a slave boy. I was about…oh….10, so he must have been 9 or 10, and I had just be taken back to the gero-gero by an unsatisfied client. I had been crying and they sat me beside him in the lineup so customers could come pick out which one of us they wanted. He just looked at me in no particular way, but for some reason, it made me stop crying. We started talking and eating together when they would feed us. Soon we became good friends. Then 3 months later, he was sold. Then I was sold about a week later and we did see each other again. Until now. ”

A teleporting rune suddenly appeared on the floor. "oh?" said Zaramu, sounding intrigued, " This is rather early...something must be up."
Ozume fidgeted, " You think he's pissed at us?"
Zaramu sighed, "I hope not..."
They both stepped into the rune and were teleported to a dimly lit room with 8 others already there. The room was so large you couldn't see the edges with the little light given They sat down at two seats that were empty at a massive stone table.
"You're late." said a female voice.
Ozume perked up, " Aria! It was so horrible being away from you, my darling!"
"Shut up and sit down, you ridiculous skirt chaser!" said the female voice.
Ozume slumped down in his chair, pouting. Zaramu also sat down.
"Patience." said a calm comforting voice, obviously belonging to an old man. "Life is too short for bickering. Ozume, while your passion is admirable, it is a bit too forceful. Aria, you write off Ozume's advances as skirt-chasing, but do you know for a fact that is what they are?"
Ozume grinned, "Alright leader, I'll try to be less forceful." He heard a "hmph" from Aria's direction.
The old man spoke again. " Now does anyone have any money or ideas for lucrative business ventures?"
Zaramu threw the briefcase onto the table. "There's $50,000 in there. The girl I was supposed to assasainate gave it to us in exchange for her life. I'd appreciate it if the client weren't alive to complain."
"Hmmm..."the old man said, "It is not like you to leave a mark alive Zaramu. I will take care of the client. Is there any reason you left her alive?"
Zaramu was silent for a moment. " She was a member of the resistance. I planted the idea in her head that the resistance would benefit greatly from hiring us. Of course, I didn't give a price as that would be up to you sir."
Another voice spoke up, a young man's, he was only slightly older than Zaramu and Ozume. " What's the girl's name?"
Ozume pulled out the file on her he still had and gave it to the man. "Hmmm....alright. I'll tail her to one of the meetings, then make an offer to their leader. What should it be?"
The old man thought for a moment. " $2,000,000. For indefinite use of us."
Aria spoke up, " Indefinite? It could be a day or 10 years!"
The old man exhaled slowly, "yes. I have wanted us to do some good for this world for a while now. Do any of you have any love for the current government?"
Everyone expressed unanimous hate of the government.
"Then there shouldn't be a problem."

Kiya finished the beer. Throwing it in the garbage, she said, "Before that huge attack happened, Zaramu told me something that i just can't get out of my head."
Nemu put out her cigeratte, "What?" She rose and started to undress.
"That the group he was in, The Ten, would be useful for the resistance."
"Yea, I guess but is the resistance strong enough to take responsability for the damage they do. I mean, that attack took many life and was very destractive. And that was only two of them. I can only image what ten of them could do." Nemu turned on the water in the shower, taking the last article of clothing off, she got in.
"Yea. I thought of that, but it seems violence is the only way to get to the king. Its crude but effective. Maybe i should look into it."
"Well, i'm sure they aren't free. Just be careful."
Kiya stood up and saw that it was an hour before the meeting , "i will, I'm off to the meeting. See ya"
"Bye" Nemu yelled back.

Kiya put on a dark coat, She walked down to the street and walked due north until she got to a small shop. Since it was getting dark, every shop around had closed for the night and so did this one. She walked into the alley beside it and up to a wooden door. She knocked on it. 3 taps. Then a slot in the door opened to reveal some sinster looking eyes. They looked her up and down. After passwords were exchanged, the door opened and Kiya walked it. It was a hat shop which was owned by a helper to the resistance. There were many entrances to a single underground highway. Unlike the gero-gero which people teleport to (so no one really knows were it is), the underground highway is a big tunnel make by earth controlers, connecting all the meeting places. Many earth controler help other non earth controllers to reach this highway. The man who owns this shop is one of these people. Kiya followed the man into a back storage room with a dirt floor. He moved a large crate to reveal what-looked-like a ordinary piece of the floor. Kiya stood in this spot and made a circle with her feet around her and stomped the ground. Like an elevator, the circular piece of ground started to sink. After she was low enough, the man pushed the crate back and kiya was in total darkness. She continued to sink for 10 more minutes. Soon she could see light coming up from the cracks in the ground. The highway was near. Then her tight dark surrounding opened up into a huge space, alive with a couple of handfuls of people walking towards 1 direction. The column continued to sink until she was level with the ground. After she got off, she stomped, senting the column back into its orginial place. The tunnel was full of columns from the different entrances.

She started walking with the group. Kiya imaged a day when this whole place would be full of people excited about helping the resistance. She waved to a few people and continued. Finally she came upon a staircase dug into the wall. This was the entrance to the meeting place, a humble farmer's barn. She started up the stairs.

________________
By this time, nemu had finished her shower and got redressed. She combed her wet hair and went to light up when she found she was out of cigerattes. She walked down the street to a small 24 hour stand which sold newspapers, candy, and magnizes. She bought a pack and when a nearby park. Sitting on a bench she light the cig and stared up at the darkening sky, thinking about the vision she had before the fight. "Who was that little boy?" she said aloud. She remembered his figureless face with the bright tears.

Name:Karasu
sex:male
Age:23
element: wind
class:ex-kai
appearance:Image
Bio: Karasu grew tired of his life of luxury at the age of 20 and decided to rebel...his rebellious stage was bit extreme and he ended up killing his whole family. He then proceeded down to the Gero-Gero and killed The Ten's wind-user in a duel...without knowing he was with the Ten. Very light-hearted and talkative, he is very rarely serious. He rarely uses his second blade.


Karasu was hanging a few yards behind her. He had gone into the shop after her, but she was already gone. It hadn't been hard to get the shop keeper to talk. He had had to pick her out of the people walking and catch up. Finally, he caught up with her. "Well hello there!" he said, punching her lightly on the shoulder. He saw her give him the "who the hell are you" look. "Oh! For got to introduce myself! I'm Karasu! I've heard a lot about you Kiya..." His happy smile seemed rather sinister after that last comment, like he was hiding behind a mask, " Zaramu and Ozume had nothing but praise for you..." He showed her his right bicep which had a tatoo of a Raven on it. He winked at her. "Shhhhhh....I'm not here to kill,kidnap, or rob anyone. Just gonna make an offer." They exited the stairs.

Kiya was startled by the sudden introduction. She started to walk slower but didn't stop. It was not normal for people to just stop and talk in the middle of the highway. Talk was for the meeting place. So stopping would alarm these already nervous people. Soon they entered into a barn, the staircase was hidden by a stall. "Oh really," she acted coy, "I must say you are quite an impressive speciman." she smiled, "what is this offer?" she couldn't hide the fact that she was actually attracted to him.

The barn was shut down with all the window's and doors shut and bound. There was many different seats with a small platform in the center for the speaker. Kiya sat on a hay stack and made a place for Karasu to sit. It was off to the back so no one could heard them. Others started to fill up the seats.

"Why thank you," said Karasu ,flopping down on the hay, "However, I have no intention of invoking Zaramu's wrath. Didn't you see any significance in the fact that it was you he had to kill to destroy his emotions?And the fact that he couldn't?"He sighed "Our leader wants us to try and help this world for once. For $2,000,000 we're willing to give the resistance our full services...indefinitely." He sounded rather bitter at the last word.
__________________________________________
--A few hours earlier--
The Ten got up from the table, each going to a teleportation rune and disappearing. Ozume turned to Zaramu as they stood " I'll folllow in a little bit, ok?"
Zaramu saw that Aria was almost at her rune. He sighed, "I'll give you a boost..." He locked his hands together and, when Ozume stepped on them, he threw him as far as he could. Ozume landed directly in front of her. Zaramu couldn't help but admire his accuracy.

Name:Aria
Sex: Female
Age:21
Class: ex-kui
element: water
appearance:Image (no sword, quite sizable bust)
Bio: Raised by mercenary parents, she has been taught to fight since birth. She sees most things as pointless and annoying.

Aria's eyebrow was twitching and her hands were balled up into fists. "What is it this time imbecile?"
Ozume was trying so hard to look at her eyes and not her chest that it almost looked like he was challenging her to a staring contest. "Hey! I was just wondering-"
"No," Aria cut him off and started to walk around him," I won't screw you."
Ozume stepped in front of her again. "I was just wondering if you wanted to get something to eat? I came into a bit of money recently, and I found a fish place uptown I thought would be good.I hear their salmon is great." Ozume didn't think it would be good, he knew it would be. He had listened,waited, and pumped her partner for information, and finally found out that Aria would do anything for salmon. He had thought it weird at the time, but now that he thought of it, growing up as a kui, salmon would've been an extreme luxury. She had probably only had it once in her life,if that.
Aria's attitude completely changed. "Oh really?" she said, paying full attention to him now. " Can I see this money?" Hmph. I bet he doesn't have the money and is just going to go to some crappy place with me and 'find out' they don't have salmon. To her surprise, Ozume pulled a fat wad of $20 bills from his pocket.There was at least $400 in his hand. She was in shock.
Ozume grinned,"Well?"
Aria touched his neck, and left the same sort of mark he had left on Kiya. A shiver ran down his spine that he barely supressed, Aria could feel it though, barely. Hehe, he's probably never felt a woman's touch...
"It'll teleport you to my front door in an hour...hopefully looking better than that." she said, looking him up and down. She walked into the teleportation rune and was gone.
Ozume walked back over to Zaramu, and they both went through the teleportation rune.Ozume was smiling as they appeared back in the house. "I assume you have a date?" Zaramu said. He saw the mark on Ozume's neck.
:freak "THESE ARE THE ONLY CLOTHES I HAVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" yelled Ozume, his head between his hands. If I embarass her at a fancy restaurant with these clothes, I'll never have another chance with her again!"
Zaramu sighed. "I guess we'll go without lodging again this week..." He pulled $200 out of one of his pockets. " You'll have to pay me back..."
Ozume lept up and bear-hugged Zaramu, who looked as if he'd rather be anywhere else. "You're a true friend, buddy!"
Zaramu pushed Ozume off him. " I just don't want my partner to be the laughing stock of the Ten."
They left the building and headed for a tailor's shop, obviously not the one where Kiya worked. This one was rather upscale. Ozume and Zaramu browsed the suits, only knowing what was nice by what they had heard. Finally Ozume picked a jet black one.
Image(except on Ozume...and it's buttoned up)
"Whaddya think?" he asked Zaramu, showing it off.
"I think I don't know anything about suits, or what looks good to a girl." said Zaramu, annoyed that he was clothes shopping. They went to the counter and purchased the suit, which Ozume immediately put on. All this had,unfortunately, taken up all of Ozume's time. The rune started to glow. "Oh! See ya later!" He managed to say to Zaramu before being teleported to Aria's front door. He gulped and shook his head, he was about to knock when she opened the door. She was dressed exactly the same.
Ozume was slightly peeved. "So...um, why did I have to wear a suit while you wear what you always wear?"
Aria raised an eyebrow. "Because, I'm prettier than any dress out there.Don't you think?"
Ozume nodded fervently. Wow, never expected her to be the vain type...explains why she thought I was only trying to get in her pants when I spoke to her. Aria walked past him. "Are we going?" She asked.
Ozume was brought out of his thoughts, "Oh!yeah! let's get going!"

Kiya never thought about it but it makes some sort of sense. " that never concurred to me. Do you really thing that Zaramu has feelings for me?"



Nemu didn't feel like going back home so she walked around a rich neighborhood close to the city. Then something caught her eye up ahead. It was Ozume and some girl walking into a well known restaurant. Is he on a Date? This surprised Nemu. She never took him as a romantic type. She walked up to the window and looked in. He must be up to something. she was determined to figure it out.

"Oh I don't think," Karasu said, " I know. When the job was announced, he practically jumped out of his seat to get it. Then Zaramu, who always gets his mark, let you live. He even proposed that we work with the resistance, which I saw as a front to be near you." The leader was starting to make announcements. "oops! time for me to go make my offer."
He got up and walked to the center of the room and looked at the man, "Excuse me," he said, " I have something to say."
The man stared daggers at him, " These announcements are not trivial things. This interruption had better be of great importance." he said in a fierce whisper.
"Oh," Karasu speaking quietly, "It is. You see, I'm from the Ten." He smiled as the man's eyes grew wide. " Ah good, it seems I don't need to explain who we are. We're offering our services, until the revolution is over, for $2,000,000. I believe it a rather generous offer."
The leader stood up and spoke to the rest of the members, " The Ten are an extremely powerful group of mercenaries, each a master of one of the elements. They are offering us their services until the end of the revolution for $2,000,000. While this would completely drain our funds, I believe it to be a generous offer. My voice is not the only one that counts though. The floor is open for discussion."
One man stood, " Ten people could hardly make a difference in a revolution, no matter how good they are. Wouldn't we be better off hiring a large number of mercenaries for the same price? I mean, we have absolutely no idea what these guys are even capable of!" There were murmurs of agreement around the barn.
Karasu grinned and nodded at Kiya, "She knows."
_________________________________________________
Aria and Ozume walked into the restaurant. There was a pianist playing and candles were in the center of each table. The host seated them at a table near the center of the room. Ozume made sure to pull out Aria's chair for her. He sat down in his chair, put his napkin in his lap, arranged his silverware, and straightened his coat. He noticed that Aria was doing each of these things a few seconds after him, and that her silverware mirrored his, meaning her forks were on the right side of her plate.
He smiled, " Forks on the left, spoon and knife on the right."
Aria blushed, " I knew that!" she said, " I was just seeing if you would correct me. Looks like you know how to dine at least."
Before Ozume could say anything back, a waiter came to their table. He handed them menus that were in a different language. " Would you care for something to drink with your meal?"
Ozume handed him $240 dollars. "A bottle of your finest champagne please." The waiter took the money and left.
" Which one is the salmon," Aria said, " I'm a bit rusty with this language."
Ozume pointed the salmon out to her on the menu. Soon, the waiter was back with a booklet.
" Are you ready to order?" he asked them.
"Yes," replied Ozume, " We are. I'll have the grilled swordfish with lemon butter please."
The waiter jotted it down in his booklet and turned to Aria, " And you madam?"
"I'll have the salmon." Aria said, sitting up straight, trying to look proper and debonaire. This was shattered by the waiter's next question.
"How would you like that?" he said.
Ozume could see her drawing a blank. She had probably only been told it was salmon. She didn't know you could have it grilled,seared,blackened,or baked. "Weren't you telling me earlier how much you loved grilled salmon?" he said.
"Oh yes!" Aria said, "I'll have it grilled please."
The waiter jotted it down in his book. "Your food will be out shortly." he said. He took their menus and walked away.
"So," said Ozume, " What do you do in your free time? Besides train.You have to have some hobby."
Aria was silent for almost a minute, and he thought she was ignoring his question until she spoke, barely audible, and extremely quickly. "Singing." She hoped he hadn't heard.
"Wow!" Ozume said," Really? you're going to have to sing for me sometime!"
"No."she replied, watching Ozume's face fall. " And you? What about you, what do you do for fun?"
Ozume smiled, " Well, I like watching clouds,window shopping, and writing poetry."
They went back and forth like this, talking about everything from favorite color to how they had beaten the predecessor of their element. Finally, their food and champagne came. The waiter placed their plates before them and they dug in. Ozume poured them each a glass of champagne. Before he had gotten even 1/3 of the way done with his swordfish, Aria was done with her salmon.
That was when it happened. Aria went to take a drink and , instead of handling the champagne flute lightly with two fingers and a thumb, she grabbed the whole thing with her entire hand. It had barely touched her lips when she put too much pressure on the delicate crystal and it shattered, making a small tinkling sound.
The glass shards in her hand were not the reason for the hot stinging tears that ran down her face. She had sustained wounds far worse wihtout crying. Champagne was dripping from her face.A good amount of it had gotten on her clothes, which left a large stain. The pianist had stopped playing, and other guests had stopped eating, watching her. The silence was awful. She wanted to hide. To get away from here, where no one could see her crying, or her face flushed with embarassment. She got up, threw her napkin on the table, and walked out of the restaurant quickly, her head down.
Ozume pulled out all the money and put it on the table, the waiter would be getting a hefty tip with the amount of change the bill would have given. He ran after her, finally finding her in an alley between two shops a few blocks away. She had her head leaning up against the side of a building, looking down, her hair hiding her face, her arms were crossed and her shoulders were shaking.
"Ar-"Ozume started but was interrupted.
"I'm s-so s-sorry..." Aria was speaking between sobs," Y-you saved me o-on the silverware...a-and on th-the way I w-wanted the salmon...You kn-knew I d-didn't speak that language, b-but you d-d-didn't call me on m-my lie...You sp-spent so much m-money on th-th-that meal...you pulled m-my hair out f-for me and I d-didn't thank you...and I did nothing but embarass you..." She stopped speaking and continued to sob silently.
Alright, I'm just gonna wing it...Ozume walked over to Aria, turned her around and pulled her into a tight embrace. He lowered his head to whisper in her ear. "Humans make mistakes. In the larger scheme of things, this was a very small one. Plus, it shows that you're at least human in one aspect. He tilted her head up by her chin, and gave a huge grin, "Only an angel could look this good with puffy eyes and a runny nose."
Aria stared into his eyes for what seemed like an eternity. "...I've always hated that toothy grin of yours..." she whispered as her lips drew close to his, "...I think I've found the way to get rid of it..."
Indeed, Ozume wasn't grinning anymore when she pressed her lips against his. There was a look of shock momentarily, but he recovered and kissed her back. He could tell by the passion of her kiss and by the emotionally vulnerable state she was in currently, that he could've taken her right then and there if he had wanted to. He wouldn't though. That would be a pretty big dick-move, taking advantage of her like that...
Finally, they broke away from each other, "C'mon, let's get you home." Ozume said. Once they came to her house, they embraced briefly then went their separate ways. Ozume resisted the urge to skip home.
He reached the house he knew Zaramu would be waiting in and walked in.
"Well," Zaramu said, chuckling, " How'd it go?" He half-expected Ozume to have been kneed in the balls so many times he would be unable to have children.
"We kissed," Ozume said. He took off his coat and tie.
"No really," Zaramu said," What happened."
"We kissed," Ozume said, " Believe what you want, but that's the truth."
"Wow..." Zaramu muttered, still slightly skeptical. However, Ozume was an awful liar, and he didn't look like or sound like he was lying.

(Grimtotem?! still playing??)
Nemu watched the whole scene in the restaurant. She actually found out about half way through that it was a legit date as she saw them smile and make light conversation. Not even the best of liars could have a serious talk with that carefree look on their faces. So she deduced that it was in fact an actually date. She continued to watch cause there was nothing better to do. Soon the date made the awful turn. She hide in an alleyway when she saw them get up to leave. To her surprise they both ended up the in very same alley. She hunched behind a garbage can and listen. She saw the kiss and couldn't believe it. He actually has a heart. Nemu waited about 10 mins after they left and she returned back to the apartment.

With Karasu's comment, everyone turned and looked at Kiya. She knew these guys would be a valuable assect to the movement. She walked over to Karasu and turned to the people. She started talking with much enthusiasm "It is true. I know the power the Ten possess and it is extensive. I believe they would make the resistance a major threat to the king's rule. Also it would bring more people to join us. I have heard a rumor that the king has ordered a movement of many prisoners to another dungeon due to overcrowding. It will take place tomorrow night at 3 am. They are moving them by foot to the dungeon, this trip includes 3 miles of unhabited land. A prefect chance to free the poor kui!" She directed her attention to Karasu and slowly walked up to him, "I suggest we let the ten prove to us that they are worth the money. " she smiled sexly and rested her elbow on his shoulder. The crowd cheered.
"Test them!" "Prove yourselves!" many voices shouted over the cheers.
