Chapter One - The First Rainy Night
The sky was blue out. Reicheru had just opened her golden eyes to the morning like she has for the past 17 years of her life. She grogily rubbed her hands on her eyelids and rolled over. She was staring Danny’s blonde loving face with a silver earring in one. For the past two years she’s been lucky to call him her boyfriend. She calls him "Denny."
"Denny-Kuuuun," she spoke softly like floating butterflies on the breeze "good morning. I've missed you in my sleep."
"I've missed you too." He took his hand and ran it down to the tip of her soft furry milky dim brown ear. Her ear twitched with delight! "I get worried about you sometimes, though."
"Really?" Her golden eyes lit up like a light in a lamp on a dark night.
"Yes of course!! You work for the Yakuza, how else am I suppose to feel?"
Her eyes gazed downward like as if trying to see something on the floor, "it's good to know there's actually someone who cares about my existence."
"I love you with all my heart, Rei-kun."
"Nya~! You do, I know you do. I love you, Denny-Kun." Reicheru purred. They kissed passionately like a woman and man that haven't seen each other for forty years but have loved each other all that time. She wanted to drink his blood, really really bad. But, she couldn't, for if she were to suck the life juices out of him, it would turn him into a demon-vampire. Of course, she would never let anything bad happen to him. He was the love of her life, and her only love.
Reicheru dressed in her outfit she wore to the Yakuza and got ready for work. She wore a white school-girls outfit that had long sleeves, a red ribbon around her neck, red trimming that went on her sleeves, a red skirt, her brown hair tied up in a red ribbon as red as blood, and a big gun. Her long brown hair with blue highlights in the middle swayed in the breeze so beautifully, she could almost kill someone with her looks.Her lipswere really red, but she didn't need lipstick.She expected she would have a tough assignment today.
She went to the Yakuza and they gave her an assignment to kill the witch. She was right! IT was going to be tough. The man with a moustache who was her Yakuza leader smiled and said “Reicheru you can do it!”
Reicheru was out, prowling in the woods when she heard a certain cackling! It was a witch!!
"OOhhh," the witch said in a nasty voice, like you're eating something slimy, " I see there's a girl out to get me, and she thinks she's prettier than me, eh?"
"Well," Reicheru smiled, "you are old and ugly, and I'm assigned to kill you. This will be the last time you fight me!" Reicheru ran toward the hag, her breasts delecately bouncing in the wind. The witch took out a staff and tried to smite her, but fell short when Reicheru suddenly disappeared and re-appeared behind her. "I told you not to mess with me!" She said slitting the witche's throat open. She put her lips to the wrinkly neck and sucked on it, really really hard. The blood came pouring into her mouth like a waterfall of gore and violence.
She was going home after having killed the witch when she heard an unusual noise coming from the bushes.
He said, "I've come back for you."
Reicheru was astonished "father?!" she yelped. "You're supposed to be dead, why did you come back? Why did you have to come back." Tears of pain and darkness rolled down her eyes as her worst nightmare stepped towards her. His cloaked figure hid his muscely figure away from her teary gold eyes.
"I'm undefeatable, bitch. You had your chance years and years ago, but you failed. Now I'm back to get you."
"You don't want to fight me, father!" She drew out her long, bloody sword and looked at him in a cruel way.
"I haven't come to kill you right now, but some day. Beware." With that, he threw a smoke bomb at her and disappeared.
Chapter Two - Tears of Rain
Reicheru got home, it took a while for the impact of her father comming back to soke in. She was hot red with anger and sadness. She decided to train in the garden with her teacher Inusoryo. He wasn't full cat demon like Reicheru, he was also part dog demon. His hair was blue tied up with red string to make pigtails. His cat ears were a very light turquoise.They both had fangs and sharp animal-like eyes. And in those eyes were a hint of love for Rei. Inusoryo became a Buddiest monk after he got into a fight with his brother (who is also known as The Ribbon Man or the Vampire Lord.) It’s considered very taboo for a monk to be in the Yakuza so Inusoryo prefers to keep it a secret.
"Rei-Chan," he said, "I've been waiting a long time for you. How did the battle go?"
"My dead father...he is back!" Her face collapsed in her hands and she nearly cried.
"How can he be back? He's dead!"
"NO! He's BACK! I don't know what to do. Maybe I can get our master of the Yakuza to kill him." She had a tear roll down the side of her sad cheeks. Her and Inusoryo both work for the Yazuka and she thought he might be able to frame her dad.
"I don't know if that'd be allowed..." His ears twitched. “I know your father has done many wrong things to you in the past, but I don’t think our leader can justify his random death. It may start a new war!”
"Then I will have to kill him myself..." Her eyes turned red with madness, like blood on fire.
Inusoryo didn't want her to get hurt, he was worried. He couldn't tell her, though. Because he didn't want her to know his feelings for him.
"Please," he said, "dont' go! He'll KILL you!"
She looked at him bravely, "I'll be fine. I did it once when I was not but a young girl.”
Inusoryo sighed and shook his hair, “he wasn’t expecting it then and he was drunk. He’s probably more powerful now.”
“It’s what I have to do.” Reicheru but her hand on his shoulder and smiled.
That night she went home. Danny was sitting on the couch next to the fire. He was reading a book very intensely. "I see you're home, Rei-kun."
"Yeah, I'm home, Denny-kun." She sighed.
"I saw you talking to Inusoryo. I think you should get a different tutor, like Kakama or Gary. They're both so good with wars and fighting!"
"Why, are you jealous? You don't have to be, I swear. I'd never cheat on you, I love you." But loomed doubt doubted her mind.
Their eyes told each other that something was wrong, but they both ignored it. They decided to just go to bed instead of saying anything. The cuddled together- and did some other stuff- then they fell asleep. And as they slept, her dad was watching.
Chapter Three - The Rain Falls
She woke up all alone in a room she'd never seen before. It was pitch black and maniacal laugher could be heard from a distance. She could taste blood in her mouth; and she liked it. Her cat demon must have came out and attacked someone, she was scared and alone.
"Denny-Kun," she called out, "where are you? Are you here?"
She walked out of the room and down a long, narrow hallway. A feeling of guilt and cowardness overcame her. What had just happened? Did she really eat somebody? These were things she didn't want to think about. Her main focus was on finding a way out.
"I have captured you, Rei. There is no escape."
"Who are you?" She was angry. "Are you my father?"
"No..." said the voice mysteriously, "I am The Ribbon Man. Inusoryo's brother. The vampire lord." His hair was long and white and one of his eyes was permanently rolled to the back of his head. His eye ball veins stuck out! He wore a pink ribbon at the end of his hair and he had lipstick and funky black eye makeup on.
Reicheru gasped in terror. The Ribbon Man had died- she could have sworn that he died! It was a long, long time ago. Inusoryo had gotten in a fight with The Ribbon Man over the death of their mother and Inusoryo had stabbed him in the heart. That moment, he died and tumbled off the cliff into the abyss of the ocean. The only way he could come back is if he was a vampire, who had been bitten by someone. But who?
"Reicheru," he said, "I don't know why you protected my brother," his firey eyes flashed, "but you can't stand between me and him anymore. I must kill him. I have to kill him- for the sake of our mother!"
"He LOVED your mother! He couldn't help what happened! He was only a baby, why are you holding onto a grudge that you don't need to?"
"She always loved him. Father didn't care about me...he just didn't care. That doesn't matter! Anyway, it's time for you to be rid of!"
Then, out of nowhere, Inusoryo and Kakama flew out of the shadows and picked Reicheru up.
"Hey," she shouted, "I can take care of myself! I don't need you to help me."
"Yes, you do," Inusoryo looked at her, "I'm here to protect you..."
Her cheeks turned red and as she looked away she saw Kakama try to slash The Ribbon Man in half.
"Damn," Kakama screamed, "he's too hard to defeat! What should I do?" Her skirt flew in the air.
Inusoryo joined the battle and all three of them went at it like rabbid dogs. Blood sprayed the room crimson. Reicheru licked the wall like a hungry devil, slurping up the mixture of their blood. The Ribbon Man threw his arm out and slammed Kakama against the wall, knocking her out. He flew away with her into the night, and they weren't seen after that.
"Oh my god, Kakama!!" Inusoryo cried into the night. He howled in sorrow and remorse.
"It's okay Inu-Sama," Reicheru comforted him, "I'm sure she'll be fine."
"No, Rei, you don't understand. He is a lord of vampires- she's one of them now." He gently put his hand up to his teary eyes.
Their golden eyes met, "one of them? Like a vampire?"
Reicheru and Inusoryo went back to the village. Danny was standing by himself at the market, eating a Danish. Reicheru departed from Inusoryo, wishing him luck, and then going to Danny.
"Things aren't looking good, Denny-Kun." She sighed and fell into his arms.
"I missed you, so much, baby. I'm glad to see you back in one piece. When I woke up and found you gone, I was scared. I thought that your dad had gotten to you."
"No, no." Her eyes sparkled as she looked up at him. "We have bigger problems on our hands, now. The Ribbon Man the Vampire Lord is black. He wants to kill me for protecting Inusoryo."
"I don't want to protecting him," his golden hair blew in the wind, "I love you, Rei-Kun, but you spend too much time with your tutor. Please, I beg of you, forget about Inusoryo and The Ribbon Man, find someone new to teach you how to fight. Infact, I know the perfect tutor."
Chapter 4 - The World Master of the Yakuza
"Huuuu-haa!" her dark brown almost black hair wiped around like a wip. Her hair was in two pigtail braids. There was a feirce look of constetration on her face as fire and air came out of her hands.
Danny took Reicheru over to her, "Rei-kun" he said, "meet Konna-Lu, your new tutor in learning the dark arts of air and fire bending."
"Konnichiwa! Watashinonamaeha Reicheru Ketsueki, sore wa anata ni aete ureshidesu!" Rei bowed, formally, her brown hair falling over like a silky waterfall.
"No, Rei-Kun, she CAN speak English."
"Oh, gomen-nasa- I mean- I'm sorry." Rei bowed again, "How are you, Konna-Lu?"
"I'm faaaaan-tastic!" She wizzed up in the air and shot flames out of her hands. "I am ready to make you the most lethal assassin! Besides me, of course."
'hmh' Rei thought to herself, I'm already lethal...
Konna-Lu touched Demark on the cheeck, "you know, maybe you should join, too...we need some sexy men around here."
"No, I think he's fine at home!" Reicheru snaped.
Anyway," Konna-Lu blinked her beautiful eyes, "I need to start training you! We could be best friends."
'hell no' Reicheru thought.
Catch, Reicheru!" Konna-Lu threw fire at her. Reicheru held out her hands and caught it, instantly freezing it with ice. "My, you are strong. Can you bend fire, too?"
"Of course I can!" Reicheru lit a candle in her hands. "You see, my farther was a demon. My mother was part cat. I have the demon blood in me, I can start fires."
"THAT'S SO AMAZING! You could be the next World Master." She cupped Rei's hands. "I can feel it within you."
"The power?" Reicheru looked puzzled and confused like a lost boy in the woods.
"No, but, nevermind that. It's tea-time!" Konna-Lu pranced off to fetch a tray of tea. 'What did she mean?' Reicheru thought.
In the tea room Konna-Lu spoke about herself. "You know" she said drinking some mint bubble-tea, "I have a secret, too."
"Oh, and what's that?" Reicheru looked at her curiously like a cat. Her ears twicthed.
"I'm part angel, really, I am. No one believes me, though." Konna-Lu sucked down a ball.
"You are? But you don't even have wings."
"Oh, but I do! I just keep them hidden so no one hunts me down and tries to rip them off. I can fly and I have the power to control light. I can't blood bend, though. Only demons can do that."
"I'm sure I can blood bend, then." Reicheru sucked on her bubble tea. There were sakura petals falling on them in the pink courtyard. It was a wonderful summer day. The breeze was just right and
the air spoke of love.
"I hear your half-sister is an angel, too. Yuki, right?"
"Uhhuh. I love Yuki! She is an angel. Loving and great with people. You can't find anyone better than her." Reicheru sipped a little more.
"I hear you're trying to kill your dad." Konna-Lu's voice sofened into silk.
"Yes, he is the most terrible man. I always feel like he watching me, even on the toilet." They both heartidly laughed. "You know, at first I didn't think we were going to be friends."
After training they went home. 'Man that Konna-Lu is loopy.' Reicheru thought. The sweat of the workout had soaked her clothes through, conforming to her body.
Her silouette looked like that of a nakid woman.
"I hear you've gotten a new tutur," Inusoryo stepped out of the shadows. He was caught offguard by her beauty. "Oh, my, you look lovely."
They both blushed, then she said "domo arigato gozaimashita, Inu-sama."
"I couldn't get them to kill your father. I didn't have the money." He marveled at her in passion. “plus it’s akward for a monk to ask that. I’m only allowed to train you guys how to fight, not kill or ask to kill myself!”
"It's okay, I want to do it myself. He needs to die."
Inusoryo turned away, "why did Danny do this to us? I wasn't doing anything wrong. I wish we could train together again. I-I-I miss...you...Rei-Kun..."
"Did you just say...Rei-Kun?" Her ears perked up.
"Yes, I did," he said boldy, "I have feelings for you, feelings I've wanted to express since the day we met, all those years ago when we were beautiful young children. You have captivated me in such a way no one has. Your beauty,
your intellegance, your passion, it's just amazing to me. We have so much in common and- oh -I have said too much, haven't I?"
"Perhaps..." inside, she was smileing. "Anyway, any luck with retrieving your woman?"
"You mean Kakama? No, not yet. Thank you for reminding me. I better go plan that out." Inusoryo lepted into the air and disappeared into the sky to find his training partner.
"Goodbye..." Reicheru whispered. She put her hands on her stomach. 'The power within me...' she whispered.
