PostSubject: Night Blends into Morning (Open)   Sat Oct 02, 2010 1:22 am

After Dream Sequence

My hands hold onto the steering wheel of my black sports sedan as I drive home from the Division 12 HQ. My mind was slightly distracted on the way home as my emotions were in a mess. It was an odd dream that occurred at work; an embarrassing one at that. I pegged it as being my own fault for not resting properly; I should have gone home instead of staying late, but there was a lot of work to finish and without Izumi, I was a bit lost. It would be an understatement that I took the job of secretary for granted. Normally I would just have to say the word and what I needed was done; now I had to do things myself and the speed at which they seemed to get done ended up so much slower.

After driving the distance from the City Metro to Gothstone, I pull up into my apartment complex. It was odd, but even with the increase in salary and social status, I managed to stay in the same place. It wasn’t too bad since I was hardly here, but with me being on the news due to the mayor’s words, I had become a bit of a public figure. It wasn’t as bad as being a celebrity or anything like that, but still, for various reasons, I had been thinking about getting a new place to stay to match my pay grade.

Speaking of annoyances, I felt something. As my car came to a halt in my parking spot, my sixth sense was activated letting me know that something was hidden. Feeling out with signature, I’m able to feel a new spiritual presence in the apartment complex near my apartment. Generally, it wasn’t a big deal. Though I didn’t care for it, there still were spirits who lived ‘normal’ lives; but at 4 am in the morning near my home, I made the mental note to be just a little bit cautious. I had my gun on me if I needed it, so that was my security. After exiting, the door to my car closes; I set the alarm and proceed on my way heading into the apartment complex and towards my apartment.

The elevator chimes on my floor. After coming to a halt, the elevator doors open and my floor reveals itself to me. Though it was dark, the hallway lights caste a dim light in the hallways. Stepping out of the elevator, I turn towards my room and pause; it is then that I see him. I had kept a feel on his movements, which weren’t much. As expected, he was right by my door, which was annoying. I had never before seen this spirit before in my life, but with the number of missions I’ve personally been on, there was no telling to why he would be here. Standing still in my commissioner’s attire, I do not speak. The spirit seemed a rather casual fellow. His back was to the wall as he sat on the ground next to my door. He was a large man, dark in complexion with a spiral tattoo under his eye. He wore thug attire with a beanie on his head, though his mannerisms didn’t fit his large and bulky frame. He looks up and notices me standing here. Stretching out fully, he arches his back as he yawns widely before standing to his feet and turning towards me. A smirk comes to his lips as he comments, “pretty humble abode for a commissioner.” From that, I knew that he knew my title. He was a spirit, it was in the middle of the night and he was blocking me from my home. There was nothing to talk about; I would take him with a signal shot before anything escalated. With my prejudice, I didn’t really need a reason, and it was better to be safe than sorry. Having read my surface thoughts, the grin increases as he says the one word that keeps me from shooting him.

“Shiori.”

Stunned, I hesitate, canceling the thought to attack him, much to his sinister delight. Thoughts of my dream pass through my mind as I unknowingly transmit this information to him. With a sigh, he lifts his hands and admits, “I know you really, really hate spirits, and I know you know I’m a spirit… I can’t help it. I just happen to be this way. I know you probably want to shoot me, but I’m not -that- type of spirit. I actually have a legit job; I sell information.” My eye twitches annoyingly as I couldn’t give two craps about who he was; my interest was on why he said the name of my ex. He holds his hands up yieldingly again with his head to the side as he says, “I got it, I got it. I’ll get to the point.” He lowers his hands and levels his gaze towards me as he laces his voice with his Influence. He continues with his voice steadily becoming more ominous seemingly fueled unnaturally by a darkness settling over the atmosphere, “It’s been a while since you’ve seen her, but you’ve just recently dreamt about her. It’s not a premonition, it’s a harbinger. Beware of the Shiori that shows herself to you in the future.” There is a movement behind me and without thinking, my gaze shifts behind me as I pull my gun out. I notice that it was just a cat; my gaze and gun aim is at where the demon should be but he was gone. I pause for a moment and sense out and the demon was no where within my sensing range. I look around cautiously, wondering if he could mask his energy, but I felt nothing. Slowly I rub my eyes with my free hand before holstering my gun back into my waist. Something in the back of my mind was hinting to me that I had imagined the entire thing, but my sensing contradicted that as I was sure I felt something. I give a sigh as I turn back to view the cat who was innocently passing by. It speaks, “nya” but continues on its way. It didn’t seem to be acting oddly at all; I wondered if I really did just imagine this now. “I’m fucking tired…” I murmur lightly. Whatever was or was not there, was probably not coming back tonight. I pull my keys from my pocket and make my way to my door. I open the door and enter into my apartment to go to sleep. I would dress down, get in bed and from there, I would not wake until the morning.

Outside, the large dark tanned figure in the urban ware walks casually down the street several blocks away. As he walks, his form begins to shift and the illusion fades away to reveal the spirit’s true self; he wore a pair of designer jeans, a black shirt and coat with fur trim. He was slender with a well planted grin is on his face as he merrily walks towards his flat. “How great coincidences are!” he chirps happily as he strolls.

I tossed and turned all night. Ghost left me pretty quickly, not liking to be squished constantly. By the time the alarm goes off I'm already awake. I sigh as I look up at the ceiling of my room. Its odd to look at. Not use to it. I miss waking up to the sight of Jyn sleeping and slipping away from him to make breakfast and coffee for us both to get us ready for work. I sigh again and force myself up and out of the warm bedsheets. I look around my room. Its neat and doesn't really looked lived in. I honestly never unpacked my stuff from when I moved out of Jyn's place.

My eyes flick to the nightstand and I see the keys sitting there, Jyn's key like a beacon calling to me. I drag my hand through my sleep tousled tresses and wonder what I should do. That dream had been odd. Also I still need to go and observe Jyn to see if he is just a puppet. I know Jyn. Better than alot of people. And in turn he knows me very well. I push myself to my feet and pad my way to the bathroom. I don't even look in the mirror, simply moving to turn the shower on. As the water heats I look at myself and grimace. My hair is a mess. I grab my brush and brush out the snarls before getting into the shower. If I don't it will be a huge tangled knot to deal with.

I finish brushing and pull my clothes off and toss them in the hamper. Yume likes the fact that Jyn turned me into a bit of a neat freak by living with him for so long. I step into the hot spray of the shower and I groan in delight. I brace my hands on the wall in front of me and bow my head under the torrent of water. I look at the drain, watching the water swirl down it. What will I do if Jyn turns out to not be Jyn? Do I try and kill him? Or do I just distance myself and pretend not to care? I lean forward and band my forehead lightly on the tiled wall. Gah! Too much to think of this early in the morning.

I stop daydreaming and wash my hair and my body, mindful to shave my legs, under my arms and of course.. Between my legs. I kind of have this thing for not having hair anywhere other than on the top of my head. I rinse off one last time and shut the water off. I hop out, shivering as the cooler air of the bathroom envelopes me. I snatch up my towel and begin rubbing myself down. I then use it to help wring the water out of my hair. I find myself humming softly as I go back to my room and get myself dressed. Bra with matching panties. I pull on a pair of black leggings that have a lace pattern up the sides followed by a cute jean miniskirt. For my top I put on a black jersey cut t-shirt that has a nice v cut that shows off the tops of my cleavage, but a modest amount meant to tease. I pull on a cute pair of combat boots and return to the bathroom to fix my hair up into a half up half down look.

It take me a moment before I'm happy with it and I look at myself. I grin. I look like my old self and it feels amazing. I have to go check in at Moonbucks when I finish dropping off the key to Jyn. I move back into my room and grab the keys and my purse. As I walk to the door I make sure to give Ghost some food and I scratch behind his ears as he sleeps on the windowsill. Then I'm out the door, down the stairs and making it just in time to catch the bus to Gothstone, the sun just beginning to peek over the city.

I found that once I had gotten into bed, I slept like a rock. Once I hit the bed, I continued the date I previously had walked out on with my desk. The morning comes all too fast as it seems to appear right after I close my eyes. My body stirs, and in my first thoughts, I wonder if I had overslept the usual time I went into the office. Though I didn’t have a set schedule, I found from the previous commissioner that it was socially acceptable for me to be around my office about an hour later than the normal opening shifts. Still, I didn’t want to work by preset standards, and I knew that if I wanted to get the work done that I needed to I needed to be there at least an hour earlier than everyone. But still, given my preferences, I was fucking tired and just wanted to go back to sleep. Begrudgingly, I pull myself up and out and into a sitting position in the bed. My hand lifts up to wipe the sleep from my eyes before my head shifts to the side, noticing dim rays entering the room, indicative of the morning’s sunrise on the horizon. I couldn’t put my finger on it, but there seemed to be something weird about last night. I remembered waking up at work, but I had forgotten the dream. I knew that I had a dream of some sort, thought I could not remember the content. It wasn’t an odd thing to forget dreams after one’s woken. I vague remembered what happened when I got to my house, but that seemed more like a dream than an actual occurrence, and on top of that, I forgot much of the words that were spoken. For some reason though, Shiori’s name lingered in the back of my mind. Strange. Either way, I knew that dreams were dreams and I had awoken to reality. A new day had come, I was the commissioner of the city’s special spiritual forces, and I had duties and obligation to fill. My hand pulls the covers from over me, revealing that I had slept in my boxers and under shirt. My steps take me immediately to the bathroom where I would proceed in getting ready for the day.

After washing up, my towel wrapped frame exits the bathroom as I head towards the bed room, tossing the boxers and shirt into the dirty clothes hamper in the closet. I give the verbal command for the wide screen visual monitor in the living room to cut on with the news programmed to broadcast. I normally watched it while I got ready in order to hear what was in the headlines; El Goog was as graceful as always with their reporting of the cities events. I move to the nightstand to see that my cell had died; I had neglected to change it over night. I connect it with its wall charger and power it on. I see that there wer no messages, so it was safe to assume that Izumi had not called for me the previous night. I take a few moments to send her a text message to tell her that I hoped she had a good morning and that I missed her before sitting the phone back down onto the nightstand. If she was in the past realm, like she said she would be, I doubted that she would even get my text until she returned to the future realm; well, it was the thought that counted, right? With a sigh, I move towards my closet. Standing in the towel, I begin to pick out my clothing from my closet, taking time to decide on my ensemble for the day. I was getting used to dressing the part of the commissioner, though I was more comfortable in my tactical attire for some reason.

BEEP….BEEP….BEEP. Something was making a strange noise in the back of my mind. It was annoying and rather loud. But what could it be? BEEP…BEEP…BEEP. Well it wasn’t Chou crying, she had been sleeping through the night for awhile now. It didn’t have the same tone as the phone in the living room of the flat. My eyes opened a crack and I looked around, rolling an eye towards the night stand. Then like a shot I was up and slamming my hand down on the alarm clock. “Shoot.” It was reading 4:15 am. I was late getting up. So I ran, with nothing on but a frown, through the large flat, my clothes in hand, to one of the two bathrooms I shared with my four roommates. Passing Luke in the processes. The young man had his toothbrush in his mouth with foam around his full lips. He blinked and shrugged his bare shoulders with his customary towel wrapped around his hips. He was the only one up at this time in the morning. Being the writer and all, he kept stranger hours than I did. Turning around he went back into the second bathroom and closed the door. If I had been out there, I would have heard his laughter, but as it stood, the only thing I was hearing was the shower blasting my nude body.

It didn’t take me long to soap up, wash off, dry my body, and slipped the pink and white maid outfit over my form, which had been made pink by the heat of the water in the shower. Quickly I brushed my hair and pulled it up into two matching ponytails. Then I jetted back towards my room, knocking on Jane’s door on the way by. I heard her customary curse to whatever gods she believed in and that signaled that she was awake and aware. Good. I was going to be late if I didn’t hurry. Bending over, I glanced under the bed and pulled out my white platform boots. Sitting there on the floor, I pulled them on my feet and zipped them up. Soon enough my door flew open as I raced towards the main door to the loft. Jane was sitting at the table holding out a breakfast sandwich that I took as I zipped by and there at the door was Luke holding my keys and purse. “Have a good day at work, dear” He said mockingly with a smile tugging at his full lips as I took my purse and keys. “Thanks guys! See ya around 1” I was lucky Luke was not into females, otherwise that handsome man would have made my heart flutter. With that, I was off running down the flights of stairs and out the door to the side walk. My breakfast sandwich disappeared in a heartbeat as I raced towards the coffee shop. Checking my watch as I reached the door, I sighed. Good. Still on time. It was 445 am. All I had to do was get the keys into the lock and it would only take me 10 minutes to complete the opening ritual.

With that in mind, I fumbled with the keys, slipped them into the lock, turned and pushed the door open. From there it took me a mere ten minutes to get the coffee brewing and fix the first cup of coffee for Yukina if she showed up. Also I gave the tables a wipe down as well as turned on the machines. My last thing to do was turn on the open sign. The glow of the neon sign made me smile. I was done with five minutes to spare today. Breathing a sigh of relief, I brought the cash register online and typed in my code. I loved being the opener. I was glad that they had given me that responsibility.

The sights and sounds of the city, even the smells are welcome. I had missed it while I was in the past realm. But this is where I belong. I've come to terms with alot of things. I had been selfish. Thinking only of myself and what I wanted in life. Wasn't my fault really. Fuck. I was acting like most twenty-three year olds. But now I'm nearly.. Crap. I'm like turning twenty-five soon. I pull out a hand mirror from my purse and look at myself. I still look like I did when I was nineteen. I don't think I'll look twenty-five for another five years.

The bus ride isn't bad and I find myself even smiling a bit by the time I hop off. One of my hands holds the strap of my purse on my shoulder, the other swinging lightly at my side. I walk the familiar sidewalks of Gothstone. I'm home and it feels amazing. I see Moonbucks and smile, seeing it open and Kameko-chan is within. I see Yukina's motorcycle and walk on. I'll stop in on my way back from Jyn's and tell the old man he doesn't have to do the paperwork anymore. I remember the heartattack he nearly had when I told him I need to take a break from working for a couple of months.

I hum softly as I take the normal way to Jyn's place. I wonder if he will be home. If not I'll open the door and drop the key on the counter with a little note. Honestly I want him to be home. I need to see him. But Izuya's words are there. This Jyn might be fake. I shake my head. Jigoku and Reirei didn't like him and Kyrojin just wanted me to kill the guy and give him the thrill of a kill. I roll my eyes as I near Jyn's complex. The time I spent bettering myself was really needed. I've learned to accept many things and I've also found ways to overcome a couple of my personality flaws. Like thinking how my actions will effect other before I just go and do them. It was a hard lesson to learn, but Yume says I'm really putting my improvements to practice. Its nice to have her to encourage me. It really helps me try harder.

I stroll up to the complex and look at the parking lot. My brow furrows. The black sedan looks new. So it has to be either Jyn's new car for getting a higher pay or someone new moved in. I shrug and take the stairs, quite light on my feet thanks to all my training in the forests of the past. If I do go back there, I'll go for just a short trip and of course tell people where I'm going.

I find myself on his floor before I even realize and nearly go up another flight of stairs. I smile at my antics and move out of the stairwell and into the hall. Nothing seems to have changed. I walk up to his door and take a calming breath, steeling myself. Please don't be from zombie puppet. I lift my hand to the doorbell and press it, able to hear it chime within the apartment because its so quiet out in the hall.

Deciding on attire to wear for the day, I pull pants, a shirt, and coat from the closet and lay them across my bed. Pulling the towel from around my form, I am nude before retrieving and putting on a pair of boxers from my closet as well as black socks and a white undershirt. Moving to the bed, I put on my pants and then loop a black leather belt into it, zip, clip and bucket. I tuck the undershirt into the slacks before moving to reach for my button-up shirt. Just as I reach for it, I pause, feeling something. Sensing out, I feel a familiar signature that causes me to freeze and moments later, I get my confirmation when the doorbell rings. It was eerie. My mind wonders why she had come here today and this early in the morning; I hadn’t seen Shiori in quite some time. As soon as I thought about her, my mind instantly jumps back to a blurry half way realization that I had a dream about her paired with the warning dream, or reality, that occurred afterwards. The warning that had come was something along the lines of ‘…beware of the Shiori that shows herself to you in the future.’ I was momentarily captured in my own thoughts as I wondered why I would have a premonition about Shiori the night before her arrival at my house; was the encounter with the unknown spirit last night real? I looked to my phone; she hadn’t called before coming, which was a huge rule between men and women. I wouldn’t go to her house without calling first; it just wouldn’t be right… my personal number hadn’t changed. I didn’t think that she would surprise me without knowing my schedule; there was no guarantee that I would be at home right now. After a moment I pause, wondering why I was so suspicious of her and if it was right to be negatively over thinking this as she could have come over on a whim. I realized partially too late that some time had passed and I hadn’t answered the door. ‘That’s right,’ I think to myself, ‘if I wasn’t here, she would probably leave.’ I made the mention decision that I wouldn’t answer the door now; I could simply wait for her to leave. I had to get to work after all; I didn’t have time for a social visit. If it were something urgent, then she would probably call me and let me know. The day had just started out for me and I didn’t know if I were one hundred percent ready to meet with her, especially with my mind in a jumble like it was, it just seemed to awkward for me to see her right now. I had to have some time to mentally prepare myself to see Shiori… my gaze is on the front door as I wait to feel confirmation if she were going to go away.

I wait quietly, listening for any movement. I press my ear to the door after a moment and hear the faint sound of the news on. Maybe he left already? I chew on my lower lip, shoulders slumping abit. Damn. I hoped he would be home. Maybe I should have called ahead? Eh.. Not my thing. Plus.. Where in the hell was my cell phone? Hmm. I'll have to ask Yume when I go see her. I know I should still have one. But living in the past had just negated my urgent need to always have one on my person. Weird since I use to have that thing attatched to me it almost seemed. I smile slightly at that. Unlike many of my generation I had overcome the cell phone need.

I clear my thoughts and frown after a bit longer. I really need to learn how to sense people's auras like Yume. Would have saved me from knocking. I sigh and fish out the keys. I would set his key on the small table with a note and leave. I could use a neat little trick with my recently aquired magic to pick the lock to relock it. The keys jiggle softly in the empty hall and I slide his key into the lock. I turn and open the door.

I step within and sigh softly as I close the door behind me. I toe off my boots in the entryway and move to the small table Jyn tended to toss his keys on or I would leave a note at times when we lived together. "Visual off!" I call out and the house is silent. I lift the keys in front of me and begin to try and get his off my key ring. "Time for you to go back. I don't have a right to have you anymore," I say aloud, needing to fill the silence. My hands shake a bit and I feel tears stining my eyes as I finally get it free. I hold it in front of me and smile sadly at it, my vision beginning to blur. "Stop being stupid, Shiori. He's moved on. He doesn't need you anymore.." I choke out, silent tears falling as my hand shakes, refusing to obey my command to set the key on the table.

I waited for a while; it didn’t seem as if she were going away. Suddenly I hear a jingle of keys and my mind shoots back to wonder if she had ever given me my keys back. I thought she did? Did she not? Oh damn. The sentence “my ex still has keys to my apartment” might be something that would get me killed with Izumi; from an outside stand point, that would seem pretty bad. I trusted Shiori, so it didn’t seem like a big deal to me. The door is opened and I move to the side of the doorway so that I would not be in the line of sight for when she opened the door. I would hear her come in, turn off the visual monitor and then speak to herself. I wondered if this were a trap of some kind. The warning said to beware of the next Shiori I saw, but what if that was a trick? Why would that be a trick? With her words, she was already saying and doing things that would well up emotions in me. I was starting to see what happened. My dream taunt me I was weak against her, as far as my emotions went. The vision, or reality, I had warned me to beware. All this time I had been depending on my senses to protect me from spirits and to heighten my survival in this city. Right now, it felt as if my body and senses were trying to tell me that if Shiori was my enemy, then I was done for. I had to steel my resolve with her, and quick. I didn’t know why she was here, but I would sure as hell find out; still… I knew I couldn’t possibly fight her. I had to bluff for now. My steps would be silent as I came into the room, welcoming her with the clicking of a gun to prompt her attention to me. Very coldly as if spoken ice, I would ask, “what are you doing here?”

Just put the key on the table Shiori. Put it down and leave a note that you're giving it back then leave. That's all I have to do. So why can't I? The key is still in my hand and I feel like I can't breath. This is my last connection to him in a way. I don't want to let him go. I know I've gotten better with being selfish. But goddammit I want this one selfish thing. Him. I want to have Jyn as my boyfriend again. I'm mad at myself for allowing that assistant of his make her move. Fucking hell. She was making a move while Jyn and I were together for Kami's sake. I'm not stupid. I saw how she looked at him. Anger is beginning to replace my sadness. If she really is a demon... I'll have no qualms killing her...

My thoughts are interupted with the click of a gun. I freeze, the key falling from my hand. I whip around just as he speaks and my eyes widen, tears lightly clinging to my cheeks. I squeak, unable to help the noise of surprise escaping me. I hold my hands up in front of me and then just stand there, panting, my heart racing. My eyes flick to the gun then to his face. "Jyn.. I.." I pause, a bit of fear in my eyes. He is pointing a gun at me. Kami... Was Izuya right? Is the man I love really gone. "I.. Was returning.. your key.." I finally manage.

She turns to me with a squeak and her hands up; god she was beautiful. The fact that I would probably always be attracted to her was annoyingly in the back of my mind. She was right here, in my house, but I knew that I had to keep this encounter brief; I would not respond to her words. I knew that if this lingered on, I would be caught up in her. It wasn’t a technique she had; it would just be her simply being her that would draw me into loving her. Pushing my senses onto her, I scan her body reading into her signature. Digging deeper, a sphere grid forms beneath me as it covers the ground in a large radius consisted of spiritual markings only visible by people like Shiori and myself. With her inside of this pulsating and glowing radius, I would be able to feel her spirit completely. I needed to know if she were different than from the last time I felt her... I needed to make sure this was the Shiori that I was with and had grown to love. While sensing her aura, I stumble across something alarming. I had never felt them before, but I was now able to sense the energies within her body; two of which seemed to be highly demonic... The aura I felt coming from her thanks to Kyrojin alone was enough to raise a few flags and solidify the words of the warning. That energy felt so chaotically demonic that I knew it couldn’t be native to Shiori. But I didn’t know, was that enough to condemn her? She seemed to be Shiori for the most part… partially… she was her consciously right?... I knew that I couldn’t do this. The sphere grid quickly retracts, pulling back to me before vanishing and I warn, “you’ve returned them… now get out before I shoot you.” I steady my aim at her; I knew that I wouldn’t shoot, but if she moved at me quickly, I needed to be able to react accordingly.

He doesn't lower the gun and I can feel all three of my weapons tensing. They didn't like the fact a gun was being pointed at me. I try and keep them calm. Kyrojin is itching for me to show Jyn who is boss but I refuse. He seems pouty now but I ignore it, the gun still fixed on me. He's not saying anything and seems to be studying me. If I recall correctly, Jyn did have an ability for sensing things. I could hardly sneak up in him as time went on. Sucked really because it had been fun to surprise him.

His cold words make me still and my blood turns to ice in my veins. No. Oh god. This isn't the Jyn I know. Jyn wouldn't threaten to shoot me. Hell.. Jyn never even made a motion to ever strike me. I feel like I've been punched in the gut, because now its hard to breath. I look into his eyes and I feel tears sliding down my cheeks. My heart is breaking. I don't want Jyn to be dead.

My legs finally give out and I sit there before him, gazing up at him, heart broken. "So that guy was right.. Did they replace you with some demon?" I say to him, trying to keep my voice steady. "Go on and shoot me then. If your not the man I love.. I see no point. I failed as a hunter.." I continue to say. "I came back to see... To see if it were true. I didn't wanna believe what that man said. That you died.. But I had to see. And the Jyn I love.. He would never point a gun at me.. Would never threaten me.. So.. You can't be my Jyn. Shoot me. I don't care.." I finish and I push the cries of my blades to the back of my mind so they are but a dull buzz. If I die.. They go with me.

She wasn’t moving; that would be too obvious. If she showed fear or left when I threatened her, it would be too obvious that it wasn’t her. This was getting more and more complicated by the moment. On top of that, she fucking falls to the floor; the exact opposite of what I needed her to do. I needed her to leave, not plant herself here. Her words pierce me as she tells me to shoot her. That was unfair; she knew I couldn’t do that. She was calling my bluff while attacking me emotionally. The way she sat there and spoke about what I would do and things that related to us… it made me want to lower my gun, go to her and embrace her. I wanted to tell her I was sorry and that I would never do something like this again, even if it meant me dying. I knew this, and therefore I knew that’s what I couldn’t do. I saw this situation playing out with me lowering my guard and felt that if I did that, something very bad would happen. I was stuck; she had me in checkmate and I had no available moves; I felt utterly defeated. My gaze on her notices the gun in my hand unsteady; my hands were shaking.

‘This is your limit? You really are weak,’ comes the voice of Damon in the back of my mind. This really wasn’t the time for the dragon spirit within me to speak. He speaks, ‘you have already rationalized the safest option, if you cannot do that, then run.’ I had never listened to the dragon spirit and taken his advice before, but now he seemed to have a good option. I could not shoot Shiori, or her likeness, that was madness. “Shit!...” exclaims in an exasperated tone. There is a swift sound, and right in front of her, I would ‘ninja vanish,’ leaving the room empty save for a few falling petals, with her in it. It would appear as if I’ve disappeared completely, but able to move with the dragon’s assistance, I found myself ‘ninja reappearing’ in the hallway moving with silent steps hastily to and down the stair well. I would figure out later what I would do; for now, I could not deal with this.

I wait for him to kill me. At least I would see the real Jyn if I die. Right? Don't know. I've never really believed in heaven or hell and other such nonsense. I mean I know Sanzon is like.. An angel or something. But I don't know. I've never thought about the afterlife because honestly I don't give two shits. I continue to wait and my eyes pick up on the shake of his hands. Something is off here. My eyes sweep his form. I take in how unsteady he has become. I just admitted to knowing he might be a demon. Yet he isn't shooting. Which means.. This is Jyn. Why hesitate if he wasn't? But then. Why point the gun at me as if... As if I'm a demon. Oh shit. Things are clicking into place. The odd visit. Me coming home then. And no.. Jyn not trusting who I am. Holy hell in a handbasket. We are being manipulated.

He curses aloud and before I can say anything.. He vanishes. "What in the hell..." I whisper, shocked that he just disappeared. I wipe the tears away and force myself to my feet. Fucking hell. I thought I was done with being manipulated. I sneer. I'm pissed. I scoop the key back up and put it in my purse. I really need to learn that sensing shit because this is bullshit. I feel the urge to punch something. I really do hate being twisted on some plan. All of this is just too much of a coincidence. Kyrojin is laughing and I shut him into his own little section. Jigoku and Reirei just seem to shake their heads as I move out of the apartment, pulling my boots back on. I then note the other pair of shoes there and realize.. He's running away bare foot. I pick up the shoes then I move out slamming the door closed behind me.

I move down the hall and move to the stairwell. I enter and I hear something. Was he running away? I roll my eyes and look over the railing. I lift myself over and leap down, booted feet landing on the rail and then without a thought I push off to the next, hopping down the railings of the stairwell to cut my time in half. "Jyn!" I call out. "Dammit Jyn! You think I'm a demon! Hold you horses Mister! We need to talk!" I call out. "Also! You're bare foot you idiot!" Smooth Shiori. But hell. I'm not leaving it like this. I finally hop to the stairs as I near the end.

Blithely I go about my normal business opening up the shop. A few early customers had begun to filter into the shop as I moved about taking orders and ringing them up two and three at a time. “One grande skim Mocha” I hated to make that one, what was the point of making it skim when you had all that chocolate. That was like a sacrilege to the holy shrine of the chocolate God formerly known as Willy. “Tall Vanilla Latte with whip cream.” That was one of the regulars, he was a good old guy. As he got his in hand, I handed him a paper without looking back towards him. He smiled. He was a no nonsense guy that work for the city. Some scientist or another. “One tall, dark roast, Columbian blend.” Wait where was Yukina. I blink and was momentarily thrown off my stride. She was the first customer and her coffee was still sitting on the counter. Then the train wreck occurred. I totally forgot the next order and had to ask the old bitty again. And that’s when she started in on me in her high pitched, bitty voice, “I have come here every morning for three years…” and you always get the same thing. I finished mentally for her mocking her in my mind as I smiled on the outside. I kept apologizing as I rung her up and completed her order. But I was still wondering where Yukina was. Maybe she was nervous about seeing me again. Gee. I hope I hadn’t scared her away.

I felt her coming after me. It was odd that she knew I was running and in which direction, though she might have just had a lucky guess. I was trying to make it appear like I had simply vanished. She hadn’t had the sensing ability in the past, so I assumed she must have that skill set now; but I would know for sure as things went on. It would just add to my current confusion. Even though vanishing and moving silently wasn’t enough to evade her, I could feel her and it would be easy to stay away from her, but if she could feel me too, then that would be much harder, but why should I have to run from her. God, why wouldn’t she just give me some time? The gun was already tucked behind my back as I moved and I continued to use the silence steps ability, which was made easier barefoot. I heard the same thing she did that prompted her into the stairway, probably a neighbor of mine or something, and soon felt her pass me completely as she hops down the railings. I pause for a moment as I wondered if she could truly sense me or if she were running blindly. Either way, it was a bit of a relief. I felt a bit better that she couldn’t sense me, since it felt like it would be more like her not to. I hear her yelling as her voice would probably get further away, though it did sound sincerely like Shiori. What would I do if it were really Shiori? It would be hard to explain why I was acting crazy, but at the same time, she was acting pretty crazy too; this was too out of character for me. Wait, did she steal my shoes? I needed to compose myself; I was the commissioner of Division 12, damnit; there was no reason why I should be running from a girl, demon or no. I had to be composed and in control of the situation. I attempt to catch my breath and collect my thoughts; a lot had happened in a short amount of time. “This is stupid…” I murmur lightly. I cursed the complicated times we lived in. Even if she were a threat, I wondered what the worst that could happen would be. If she were trying to kill me, did she really need me to lower my guard? Was she really trying to get me back from Izumi? What I did know was that I couldn’t tell Izumi about this, but I felt bad because I thought like that. I missed Shiori, but it wasn’t right to think of her like that… right? My senses had never been off before, why would they be giving me a false warning now? Maybe I just needed to take a risk… but even after that, there was the danger of me cheating on Izumi. Wait… did she say I died?

Seiki

A column of light lifts up in an alley way and my body forms out of it. I brush my teal bangs out of my face and look about me to make sure I didn’t startle anyone by appearing like this. Luckily it didn’t look like anyone had seen me. I had a bit of time before my training would continue, so I decided to come and pay an early morning visit to Akera. I didn’t have to time explain things after she left my house; I just needed to make sure we were good. On top of that, I didn’t want things to be weird. I felt I could work on things and see where they would go, but I wanted to at least talk to Natsuki about it. I was dressed some clothes I had in my closet that I could easily train in; a pair of blue baggy basketball shorts, sneakers and a large printed white tee shirt. Jogging from the alleyway, I make my way to the main side walk. It looked like morning traffic with people heading to bus stations, walking on the sidewalks and cars starting to fill the street. I make it to the corner intersection and wait for the pedestrian light to cross to the other side; I proceed in this manner to Moonbucks.

As I enter into Moonbucks, it looked like they were pretty busy. I see Akera moving about and taking orders. It was around that that I figured this probably wasn’t the best time to come. I thought I had woken early enough to get to her before they would get really busy. I was kind of hoping to talk to her with not a lot of people around, but then again, they called it work since you had to do stuff there. I slowly walk into the interior, having to move out of the doorway due to the angry business people who were in a rush to get in and get out. I didn’t like coffee, so I couldn’t pretend that I had come here in order to get some; I looked up on the menu to see if they had a muffin or something; I could play this off somehow, or so I thought.

The first morning rush dimmed down as the old lady was still snapping at me. And she had that dang dog with her in her arms. Was that even allowed? Well I guess since they had always let her in with that mutt, I could not just tell her to take the mongrel outside and leave him. But soon she would get tired of standing there and blistering my ears. I had fixed her coffee and now she just wanted to be an angry old badger. I felt the presence of someone coming towards the now empty counter and looked up. I love being able to sense things ahead of time. It was Seiki with his teal colored hair, looking like he had used his fingers to brush his hair again. Had he brushed his teeth? Or sniffed his clothes again to make sure he had a clean set to wear. The man needed someone to do his laundry. Men could never do such household chores. "Good Morning, Seiki-sama" I said it as a tease to make him feel so much older. "You look a bit rumpled, if you want to drop off your laundry, I can get it done this afternoon. It wont even cost you. What can I get for you?" I asked as I stood there, things were starting to calm down since the first morning rush was over. I wanted him to know that there were no real hard feelings and that everything was back to normal.

Seiki

While I am looking at her in my approach, I see that I’m noticed. I see that she seemed to be doing pretty good; I greet her with a casual smile, following her welcome with a “yo.” The tease draws a smirk from me as I could get used to being called –sama. The smirk slowly fades into self consciousness as her words cause me to look over my clothes wondering if I really did look that rumpled. I remember that I had sniffed my clothes in front of her, but still that was cool. I wouldn’t look a gift horse in the mouth as far as the invitation to do my laundry. I normally forgot to do it, but when I did do mine, I just tossed everything into the washing machine and turned it on whatever setting it was closest to that would make it turn on. Normally it got things clean enough to wear in public; my biggest issue were my training cloth. They tended to need to be tied up in plastic bags until that time of the month came to do laundry. Moving on, I continue, “I’m good, I don’t want anything. I just came here to see you. But if you feel like doing my laundry, that’s cool I guess. Did you mean bring my clothes here or to your place?” I was glad that things weren’t weird between us after what happened in my room at my house.

"of course I meant bring them to my apartment, silly" I shook my head and chuckled at the thought of his dirty laundry stinking up my nice clean coffee shop. "You have so much to worry about with your mother, that its the least I can do to help you out." Good, we were still friends, nothing had changed that old companionship that we had since we first met. I was genuine in my offer since I knew that he had to take care of his mother by himself. It might help release some of that stress from him. I reached up and tucked a strand of my hair back behind an ear. "If you wanted, I could even come in a clean every week. I know that it must be hard for you, and I'm sorry I never offered before, but I didn't want to hurt anyone's feelings of step on any toes" That was me, meek and mild. I could never intentionally hurt a friend and I was glad that Seiki and I were able to fall back into that same relationship that we had had for years, after that fiasco the other day in his bedroom. I really don't know what had come over me. I guess not having anyone around had made me a bit.. loopy or at least... horny. But him and natsuki were still an item so I would have to squash those feelings again. And I screwed the lid on that jar of emotion real, real tight. Mentally I gave myself a shake and quickly took the next person's order before continuing in our conversation. Something that most people over looked about me, was the fact that I could multitask rather efficiently. I might be a bit niave, and a ditz, but at least I could multitask and do it well. Such as filling an order while chatting with someone else, and still managing to make the customer that I was filling the order for smile as he walked away.

With his shoes in my hand I come to the last landing and I peer down to the door. Nothing. I also didn't hear it open. Had I passed him? It was possible. I was leaping down the stairweel instead of taking the stairs. Without the ability to pinpoint him it was an easy thing to do. I really do have to remedy that soon. Seriously. Once this is wrapped up I'm calling Yume and asking for a lesson. Its too big of a vunerability. I sigh and turn and begin the trek back up the stairs. I knew he had to have taken this way. The door on his level had been left ajar when I knew I had closed it when I came up the stairs.

I freeze when I hear a murmur, the soft sound echoing in this confined space and my eye twitches abit. We were acting like a pair of five year olds playing hide and seek. I've become a better morning person without coffee right away, but this shit was pushing the limits of my patience. I leap up to the next landing, wondering how far I had passed him.

"Jyn!" I call out his name as I walk. "This is stupid as hell. We are acting like kids by doing this. We need to talk and you need to put on your shoes for work," I say, my voice bouncing around us, a hint of my morning irritation there. He knew I was not a morning person. He had heard this voice before when I had not had coffee and Ghost had destroyed something. Up another round of stairs and I pause on the landing, thinking I see a faint glimpse of ebony hair. I lean back on the wall. I would let him approach.

"If it makes you feel better. You can point the gun at me. But we need to talk. Something ain't right. All of this is too much like someone planned to turn us against one another with well fed lies and fine tuned manipulation. So if you'll be a grown up for a moment.. Can we talk without you running away like a kicked puppy?"

Seiki

I chuckle a bit at the ‘of course’ statement. On thinking about it, it was revealed to me that I might have to decline the offer. I sold my bike in order to pay the rent and I didn’t have a car. Even if I did still have my bike, it would be hard for me to drive my laundry over to her place from East City to Gothstone; that was a long trip. Somewhere in that train of thought, I remembered that I could warp and teleport, though I wasn’t sure if she were aware of this yet. I supposed she would find out when I brought my laundry over; but first I would have to go to her house, since I didn’t remember every going there. I could only warp to places that I’ve previously been. I scratch the back of my neck as I speak modestly, “yeah, thanks.” The offer to help clean up the house every week was very generous of her. Bashfully I turn my head to the side and say, “if it’s not any trouble, I guess I could use the help.” I hadn’t really been around much to help keep things clean, but I also hadn’t been around to dirty things up. I felt a lot better, though, about the fact that Akera being there would at least help my mom out and keep her company while I was away. “I’m sure my mom would like that,” I admit before venturing, “hey, um… I wanted to apologize for the other day. I didn’t actually run from you, I have this sword… it’s kind of a long story, but it can manifest a spiritual form and beat me up. It pushed me away from you back then… I think it was kind of a misunderstanding…”

.Yukina

I had meant to go in right when the cafe opened but then I thought I had seen a ghost walk by. Shiori hadn't seen me, but I sue as hell saw her. So. She was back. And she didn't look bad. Just by the way she walked I could see the lioness in sheep's clothing. She had trained and honed herself even further than before. I had quickly found myself following her silently. I was curious. Sue me. It was odd that she didn't go right to Moonbucks. The place was like her baby in a way. She's been there forever it would seem.

To my surprise I followed her to an aparment complex. I didn't enter, but observed. I then spotted boss man's car and arched a brow. Oh boy. Ex lover's quarrel? Not something I want to be near. Especially don't want boss man to know I was here. I shake my head and head back to the cafe. I frown a bit at how long I've taken and enter. A boy with teal hair is chatting it up with Kameko and the urge to kick him away from her rises. Whoa Yukina. Down girl. He could just be a friend of hers. I don't need to ruin this tentitive thing I've started with her. I saunter up and grin a bit at her.

"Sorry I'm late, Kame-chan. But I spotted your boss lady. Looks like Shiori is back in town," I say to her and note my coffee on the counter. I frown slightly That means its not steaming hot. I don't want to be a bitch but.. I look at her. "I know Imma pain. But could I have one right out of the pot, babe?"

Jyn

I feel her stop and pause; she must’ve noticed that the door wasn’t flung open. She was a huntress after all; it wouldn’t be easy to evade a critical eye like hers. Feeling her, I knew she was coming to my position, so I wait for her there. I reach back with my right hand and hold my gun down to my right side with my left hand in my pocket as I made up my mind to get this inevitable encounter out of the way. I hear her words as they precede her up the stairs; I felt her as she came closer and closer. It seemed a bit farfetched for someone to pit us against one another; to my knowledge the only mutual demonic acquaintance we had was Sanzon, and I hadn’t heard from him since sending him to Onitoshi on recon. After her words, I speak back in a firm and flat tone, “why? I told you to leave. You finished whatever business you had. You were bringing me my key back, right? Why pursue me even at your own risk? Are you trying to force this talk on me? What if I don’t want to talk?”

I tap my foot as I wait, crossing my arms under my breasts, his shoes hanging from my one hand. I find myself closing my eyes when he speaks. I may not be able to sense, but I'm a trained hunter. I use other skills to find my enemies. My hearing is quite good thanks to the fact I take care of my hearing for this one reason. I peg him to be one more landing above. I open my eyes and push off the wall and leap half way up the stairs, touch down for a moment then press off again, coming to land on the landing. I turn and look at him, frowning a bit.

"Because the man I love just pointed a gun at me like I was a fucking demon?! That's why we need to talk!" I snap, quite upset now. I toss his shoes close to him and then lean back on the wall, looking at him, upset and deeply hurt by his actions. I cross my arms again, slightly hugging my own form. I need to keep myself calm. "I tried to finish my business and you made new business by level your gun at me. I can't believe you did," I mutter the last bit, still shocked about it.

"Now if we can both be adults. I think something is wrong. Someone came to me asking if I knew how you died recently. THen they showed me a vision of you dieing along with your secretary being a demon. Don't know what I can believe and not. One I do know is your not a demon puppet. I still have to go and confirm to see if she is a demon or not. But what would be odd if she was.. Is why you would associate with her since you have something so against them," I pause, pursing my lips. "You keeping up with me so far? Hope so. Because I'm not happy right now." I say and then I blink, tilting my head. Shit.. Had I said I love him just a couple of moments ago?

She comes into view, landing before me, seemingly upset. Ah, this was familiar. My gaze shifts down as the shoes are thrown at me and she continues to speak. I figured I could chance that this was actually Shiori, though it didn’t explain that chaotic demonic presence I felt inside of her. For now, I would wait what whatever that was to manifest itself. I look down at the shoes that are tossed near me, and then back up to her during her tirade. I stuff the gun back into my belt behind my back before casually leaning down and picking up my shoes. Without immediately responding to her, I turn my back and start to walk up and towards my apartment with my shoes in hand. So she still loved me? I always knew I was a hard person to love, but just as I feared, that complicated things more, especially with how I felt about her. Maybe it would have been easier on me if she were a demon? But, in usual form, I was not about to have a domestic dispute outside in the stairwell of an apartment complex. The last thing I needed was Izumi reading in a tabloid something about the Commissioner of Division 12 having an argument in public with the heir to the Kyro Corporation. “Keep your voice down,” I say as I walk up the steps, “you’re saying too much out loud.” I also didn’t feel like explain spiritual matters to any neighbors that may be eavesdropping. If all goes well, I make it back into my apartment. Walking into the interior, I would notice that the keys were not on the table; she must have picked them back up. I would continue to my room where I would sit on my bed and begin putting on my shoes.

My eyes widen as he basically scolds me for having this arguement with him here out in the stairwell. Who the hells fault is that?! He's the one who ran away. I huff a bit and I'm glad he picks up his shoes. He looks a bit ridiculious dressed all nice and then.. Bare foot. "Fine," I say and quietly follow him up the stairs, still hugging my form. I'm a bit shaken by all of this. How did it come to us looking at one another like enemies? It scares me.

We aren't far from his floor and I let him keep a couple of paces ahead. I don't say anything. He seems aggitated as well. He walks back into his place and I move in after, quite hesitant. I gently shut the door behind me and rub the back of my neck. I shyly move to the door of his room and stand there, watching him silently. Sadness nearly overwhelms me. I.. God I miss him. I miss us living together. This place feels unused. It doesn't smell like anything has been cooked here in a long while. I wonder how i should approach this.

"Look. I'm sorry I snapped at you in the stairwell.." I apologize first. "Umm.. Want me to make you some breakfast and we can.. Maybe talk? Something set you off about me. I would like to know why you thought I was a demon.."

Of course I put on my socks first, since I didn’t think I had time to get those on my feet. Afterwards I move on to my shoes as Shiori begins to speak. I don’t look up at her, but I was glad to hear that she had calmed down a bit. The way I appeared now, it should look like my guard was down; this should be enough if someone needed to get the jump on me. I continued to monitor her actions as being normal for her. After her words, I speak, “there’s no need for breakfast. I’ll pick something up on the way, I don’t have the leisure time to spend waiting for you to cook; I’m already behind my own schedule.” After getting my shoes on, I stand up, picking up my pin stripped button up shirt. I pull my arms into its sleeves and adjust it over my shoulders. As I button the cuffs, I continue, “I had a few premonitions about you and danger that I may have looked a little too far in. I guess you could say that I was paranoid. Your timing in coming to see me was a little suspect and there seems to be something very demonic inside of you. This isn’t surprising given the way you fraternize with the enemy.” I really did want her to cook for me and I didn’t want to be so cold to her; but this was the way things came out for me, and it was true, I did have to get to work. I couldn’t afford to be casual about my job; I had self expectation to reach as well as the expectations of the people who put me in my current position. The city still was not safe; my minor life issues were secondary when compared to the weight of the many lives my decisions affected.

I flinch at his coldness, but I keep my mouth shut. Did I really deserve his biting nature. We had broken up mutually. We had been busy people. We had said we would remain friends since I worked at Div12 also. My eyes follow him, my heart aching horribly. My hands itch to smooth out the faint wrinkles in his shirt that he did not smooth out when he pulled it on. But I dare not touch him. Not with his behavior towards me. He continues to speak and I blink. Demonic inside me? I blink for a moment, tilting my head. Oh! Jigoku and Kyrojin. I laugh softly.

"You mean you sensed the spirits of my weapons," I say to him and without facing him I summon Kyrojin in one hand and Jigoku in the other. Reirei is a blessed blade so it should not effect anything. "Go on and sense again. All you were sensing is these two. Both have lingering spirits within. But I've become their mistress and they serve as extensions of myself.." I say softly. I give him his time to scan me and when he is done the weapons vanish.

I turn my head to peer at him. "Also. What have I done to get this coldness from you? We both broke us off mutually. So I don't see why you have to be a dick to me, Jyn," I tell him , unable to hide the sadness in my voice. "Also. Yukina will have it later. But I hope you will approve my request to be taken off any patrols.. Unless this new you spites me so much that you want me dead." the words are out of my mouth before I can stop them.

I begin to button up the shirt leading up to the second to last, leaving it unbuttoned from there on up. From there, I move into tucking that shirt in, removing my pistol from where it was stuffed in my belt behind my back and tossing it onto the bed. I continue to listen to her during this process. After I’m done with that, I pause and turn to her; I didn’t need to inspect the weapons. They were demonic and a part of her, I could believe that much from knowing her. She knew my opinion of demonic powers and the slippery creek it was. All this let me know was that she hadn’t changed much in that aspect, she was still dealing with demonic things, which I surely did not approve of. Speaking after she finished I answer, “why are you here, Shiori?” I allow a moment for that to sink in, “you’ve already stated several times that you love me. I don’t believe you want to be friends. If I’m not cold to you…” I stop my words, knowing that wasn’t a good way to word it. It would explain that I was using my coldness as a defense mechanism. I take an alternate route and confirm, in case she did not know, “after you and I broke up, I started seeing Izumi… we’re currently together.” It wasn’t the type of thing that would come up in conversation, so there was a good chance that she didn’t know. I hadn’t realized that until now, so I felt bad if those words would make her feel rejected if she came here to get me back; I was under the impression she didn’t know.

Why am I here? No clue. Good question for myself as well. But then I know one reason was to see if Jyn was Jyn. If he was a puppet I would already be dead and my body being hidden away. No one but Yume knew I was back. So no one would go looking for me. I look away as he mentions that I have said I love him and the dream appears faintly. Just snippits. But I think it had given me hope for something. I'm acting like a foolish little girl, but I want him back. I flinch visibly when he mentions Izumi. No. I knew about that. Kyouya had seen them and broke it to me gently. I took it as well as I could then, but during that time i was not standing on my own two feet properly. Its now that I've begun to get better and less selfish, in a way. I'm honestly trying.



"I know.." I say softly. "Jyn.. She was making doe eyes at you even when you and I were dating. She was hoping you and I would break up. Because from what I hear.. You started dating her practically when we broke it off.." I stop and sigh softly. "Honestly. I came here to make sure you weren't some demon puppet. I couldn't bear the thought of it. Also I wanted to apologize... For being as I was back then. I was selfish with how I went around doing things. I should have taken your feelings into account. I took sometime and I've felt that I've grown up. Its one of the reason I'm stepping down from being a hunter. I'm going to try and just be happy with a normal job. I can always train in the safety of Angela's lab if I need to work off some steam. But I realized finally just how many people I was worrying by doing what I was doing.." I stop and peer at him. "Jyn. I'm sorry.. I really am. And as for you and Izumi. Well... If things don't work out. I wanted a chance to try again. Just one more time. I'll work a simple job. I won't hunt. I.. I just miss what we had.."

Jyn

As expected; she knew about us. I guess it wasn’t a huge secret; she did work at the Division after all, and everyone there had suspicions even before we hooked up. I felt a bit bad that she had heard about the time frame of our dating. I wasn’t exactly innocent in the events that occurred between me and these two women. She mentions something about me being a demon puppet; I had no idea where she may have gotten that from, but I could guess it was probably from another demon. I needed to figure out what the significance of that was, other than someone simply messing with her. By the time she finished speaking, I would look down and to the side. We did used to have something great, but I had something with Izumi now that was good too. I couldn’t have both, that wasn’t right and with their powers would be nearly impossible. The timing was just horrible, though; Izumi was going through a very traumatic experience right now that she needed my full support on. She thought of herself as a demon and was afraid to show herself to me. I told her that I would support her through this and make sure that everything would be okay. I couldn’t allow myself to fall for Shiori again; that wouldn’t be supporting Izumi at all. I look back up and towards Shiori; I could tell she was doing her best. There were many phases to her growth; this wasn’t the first time she came to me with promises of becoming better, but I knew that the words were earnest regardless of their plausibility. Answering her apology, I speak, “there’s nothing for you to be sorry for… I am at fault as well. Things didn’t work out and I was selfish. I still feel… if I weren’t with Izumi, I would… we could… go back to that… but something’s happened to her…” My gaze shift down as this was hard to talk about with Shiori. I admit, “I have to support her…” even if it meant not giving in to my desires. No… especially if it meant that.

I watch him. He looks good in that suit. But I liked his other clothes. He looks a bit uncomfortable in these somehow. I let him digest my words. I want to run into his arms and just cry my apologies. But I can't anymore. He's not mine, even though I want him to be. He finally speaks and my heart twists horribly. I knew I wouldn't get him back so easily. Not like in my dream. I wish I could. But.. Reality sucks a hell of alot more. I smile sadly and fish the key out of my purse. I walk over to him and take his hand gently, pressing the key into it. My head is bowed and I pushed his fingers to clasp over it.

I finally lift my face and gaze up at him with unshed tears in my eyes. I give him the best smile I can muster. "I want you happy. I'm sorry for everything I did. I don't deserve you, Jyn.." I lean up without warning to press a kiss to his cheek. "I really do love you and always will," I whisper to him, the tears beginning to fall as I pull away. I step back a bit, gazing at him with longing, but I don't act on it. "I had a dream about you last night.. I think.. It made me hope I could be yours again..." I shake my head a bit. "I'm an idiot. Gomen ne.. Jyn.." I finish and turn to walk away from him.

Jyn

The hardest part had to be watching the reaction my words had on her. I didn’t want to make her sad; she wanted for my happiness and I wanted to return those feelings to her. I knew even though I was hard, I could try my best and maybe bring a little bit of happiness to her, but my hands were tied by fate and my decisions. In my mind I knew I had to honor myself and my current girlfriend. I tense slightly as the kiss comes to my cheek, not because it was unpleasant, but because I wasn’t expecting it. Her lips were soft and I longed for them to be against my own rather than on my cheek, but I did not move on that impulse. I hear that she had endured a dream about me as well; it was odd, but I wondered if we had shared a mutual dream. In this world, such a thing wouldn’t be that impossible; our souls had connected on several occasions. As she starts to walk away, I speak in a soft tone, “you don’t have anything to apologize for... I love you too, and may always love you, that won’t change…” She knew the issue as I would confirm, “I just can’t… be with you…”

I want to turn away from him and just walk away, but his words stop me and I want to say to him that he is being so unfair by saying that to me. I look over my shoulder at him, unable to hide my tears. My heart hurts so much. Why do I have to love a man I can't have? Is this some Kami's devine punishment for past sins i've committed? If so.. I think hell would be easier. I need to walk away. But this is Jyn. I love him with my very soul.

My feet are moving before my mind can command them to stop. I move to him and hug him, form shaking. "It would be so much easier if you didn't love me..." I say to him softly. "I can't let you go when I know that, Jyn. Its not fair to think I will just let her have you without fighting to get you back," I added, gently looking up at him.

I watch her pause from walking away from me. Her face over her shoulder was like a piercing arrow straight into my chest. Before I know it, I find her embracing my form. I feel the shaking of her lithe body and everything in my mind tells me not to hold her while also telling me to go ahead and do so. My hands slowly come up as wrap about her feminine frame, holding her closely. I had failed and one of my walls had been torn down; she had come and claimed a small victory in this embrace that I could not deny her. Aside from that, I wondered if it was myself that I was refusing to deny. As she looks up to me with those eyes and lips, I do not know how to respond. I feel a twist of emotion in my chest; “Even if you tell me that…” I say as I turn my face to the side, unable to look directly into her eyes, “that’s something I can’t change… the same would go for you. If you didn’t love me, this would be much easier on me too. That’s just how it is, Shiori.”

I fear him pushing me away to distance our bodies. But those arms encircle me and I feel so safe again. I belong here in his strong arms. It feels so good. I can smell his shampoo. Its the same and I know my own hair smells the same. I took to buying it after I moved out. I just couldn't let go of that scent. I needed a part of my old life with me at all times. My form molds to his and I look into his eyes.

He speaks and looks away from me, but does not release me from his embrace. My confidence grows. I know I just want him happy, but he is wavering from Izumi. I see a speck of hope in this. I'll show him I've changed. I'll take him back fairly.. In a way. My hand lifts to his face. If he will allow me I would cup his cheek gently and urge him to look at me, already leaning up. If he looked to me, my lips would not be far. A soft whisper of how I love him and I would try and press my lips to his own in a soft kiss.

I knew that the time for me to hold her should be coming to a close. I couldn’t get greedy here and I knew the longer this went on, the closer I would be getting to doing something that I didn’t need to do. I feel her hand on my face and without thinking it tilts down. I am caught off guard to the tenderness of her voice as she says that she loves me before her lips are brought to mine. For a moment, she would be kissing me, but after that moment, there would be a split second when I would kiss back before pulling back and turning my head to the side. Things were getting kind of like they were in my dream; I feared I would be seduced here, since I had low resistance to Shiori. I knew she knew this as well, which made her that more dangerous. “Shiori,” I murmur in a low tone with my gaze to the side, “please don’t do this to me…” My words would ask her to stop while my body would indicate that I didn’t want her to. For my own sake, I hoped halfheartedly that she would stop.

His face turns toward me and I know I have caught him with his guard down. This is my Jyn. The sweet man who captured my heart when no other could. My eyes slide shut as our lips are allowed to meet. I feel myself melt just a bit as I get this chance to taste him again. It takes a moment but he responds, kissing me back and I nearly moan in pleasure at the feel of me gaining this footing back into his life. The kiss is broken and my eyes flutter open to gaze at him. I feel bad then. I'm putting him in a difficult position. But I don't pull away from him. I can't. Not yet. I just want a moment more in this bliss.

"Jyn. I'm sorry. I couldn't help myself. I've missed you so much.." I say to him softly. I press my cheek against his chest and press against him, holding onto him. "I want to be with you so much it hurts.. But I don't want you in pain also," I whisper. "But I have changed, Jyn. I'll show you I have," I finish gently. I nuzzle him a bit and look up at him once again. "Just.. Give me a chance. I want this again. No one has touched me since you.. Cause I don't want anyone else but you."

My hands lower from embracing her to resting on her waist just above her ass. I feel the softness of that area, a place I often held onto while she sat in the ‘driver’s seat’ on occasion. I feel her against my chest and my chin rises a bit; I’m able to recount the scent of her in this close proximity. I swore that the woman had pheromones that were tailored especially for me. I continually hear the determination in her voice as she promises me that she changed. I wanted to believe her and I did for the most part, but my hands… they were tied. As she looks up and speaks, it makes me feel a bit good to hear that no one’s touched what was one and could be mine again. I knew this would be a package deal, though. I couldn’t do something indecent with her and that be it; Shiori and I could never be friends with benefits. Weakly, I make the excuse trying to change the subject and gain a reason for stopping here. I voice is soft as I say, “I… I have to be at work, Shiori…” Maybe I should have gone with the breakfast after all.

I shiver a bit with where he places his hands. My body remembers those hands so well. Its screaming for me to seduce him, but I'm going to respect his wishes. I would never be able to just have him once and then have him go back to Izumi. I might end up doing something illegal. Mostly murdering a certain female secretary. I can see in his eyes that he is pleased that no one has had me since him. I smile warmly as he attempts a weak excuse to get us to part without making it look like he was pushing me away. I press against him one last time, taking in his scent and the feel of him. I then give him one last kiss on the cheek and pull away from him. I wipe my face, knowing I can't leave with tears on my cheeks.

"Let me at least make you a small breakfast. It won't take long. I promise. You need something. Picking up premade fast food crap is unhealthy for you. I'll even make you some coffee to take with you.. Please let me?" I give him my best puppy dog eyes as I plead with him to let me cook for him. I want to show him this domestic side again.

I am able to breathe a sigh of relief as she allows me to go; I dodged the bullet. I knew that was a close call; she was moments from wearing me down fully. Still, a bit of me was slightly sad that things did not go down, but I convinced myself that it was for the better. My hands slide from her waist as distance comes between us. My visage lightens a bit as I complain, “you’re so persistent. Sure, go ahead.” It had been a while since I had a good home cooked meal with all things taken into consideration. I certainly wasn’t going to be able to cook anything other than rice or something simple. There was an era where I used to be able to cook pretty well in my own mind, but like most bachelors, the food I cooked probably could only be consumed by me and was eaten to sustain energy rather than enjoyment. While she did that, I could continue getting ready for the day. I didn’t have much to do, but at least this way, I would have enough time so that I didn’t forget anything at home like my cell phone.

I wonder if he will let me cook for him. I nearly have the urge to clasp my hands in front of me and pout out my lower lip. I know how to make men crumble when I beg for something simple like this. I wait for his answer and I brighten instantly as he tries to make it sound like its a bother for me to cook but to do it anyway. "Hai hai. I'll make you a nice breakfast, Commissioner-sama," I chirp and saunter out of the bedroom and into the kitchen.

I look around the kitchen. This had been my domian when I came to live here. It had taken me alot of work to learn how to cook. Yume had helped me, but I remember just spending time here when Jyn was at work just practicing recipes till I got them right. I smile as I open cabinents and find things as I had left them. I pause as I am fetching the french press and see my mug. It makes me blink in surprise. But then a smile touches my lips. Parts of me are still in this apartment. I noticed that it didn't look like another woman has been in here. Looks the same as when I left. That's a good sign.

I fetch a kettle to boil water on the stove, setting it on the back burner as I move to the fridge. I open it and wince at how bare it is. I sigh and inspect the eggs. The date is still good. I set them on the counter and peer back in. Not trusting the other stuff. I close the fridge portion then crack open the freezer. I spot some bacon and thankfully it doesn't look freezer burned. I pull that out along with a pack of bagel I remember shoving in there to keep when I had bought too many groceries around the last week I was living here. I shut the freezer and place the other items on the counter, my body moving comfortably about the kitchen as I put together a simple breakfast for him that should keep him filled till lunch time.

Jyn

Her tone and words confirm that she won, and I allow myself to accept defeat for now. This was at least innocent in its own way. I watch her as she makes her way into the kitchen before turning to the bed and looking down at the coat I would be wearing out. There was no need to put it on right away; instead I move to the bathroom and proceed in combing my hair now that it was mostly dry from the shower earlier. From the bathroom, I give the verbal command for the visual monitor to come back on, so that the news could be playing in the background. So far they reported that nothing blew up last nice, which was always a great way to start the morning. I still didn’t have any leads on the Pillars that Sanzon was talking about and he hadn’t shown up on the radar as returning to this realm. I wondered who was working his operation while we were gone; it slightly troubled me that a demon had a successful organization of unknown purpose here in the city. It showed how money pretty much ruled things here; demons and humans; the differences blurred at times.

I defrost the bacon slightly and get some strips free along with a bagel from the frozen bundle. I put the rest back in the freezer, moving to the stove again. I pop the bagel in the microwave just as the visual monitor turns back on and I smile. This is like old times and it warms my soul. I can see Kyrojin rolling his eyes at my domestic nature, while the other two just settle down, liking the fact I am now relaxed. I grab my skillet and skip back over to the fridge for butter. Least that took a long time to go bad. THe kettle begins to whistle and I turn off the back burner.

I begin to hum softly as I butter the skillet then crack a couple of eggs over it. With a fork I scramble them and then let them sit, the microwave finished defrosting the bagel. I pull it out and use my nails to pull it apart, then pop it intot he toaster and push down the lever. I quickly set up the bacon on a plate with paper towel and put it in the microwave next and set it to cook. My hands know this routine so well. I move to make the coffee in the french press and leave it to sit and cook itself into an amazing cup of coffee. I relax further as the smells of the kitchen begin to fill the apartment again. Now its home again.

I idly listen to the news as I flip the eggs over in the skillet, keeping it in a pancake like form to better fit into a sandwich form. The toaster pops up and then the micro is indicating that the bacon is done. I grab a plate and put the breakfast sandwich together with ease. Wish there was cheese, but I can't trust what he has in the fridge. I fetch his travel mug and pour in the finished coffee, making it just as he likes it. I wrap the sandwich half way, this way he can eat it while driving and not have to worry too much. I peek out of the kitchen. "Hey Jyn! I'm done!" I call to him.

When he mentions the other day, I reach up and place my hand behind my head abit embarrassed myself and chuckle it off. "It's alright, Seiki. I understand" So he had a sword with a spirit well I could believe that will all that I had seen here lately. Things never ceased to amaze me. "So this sword of yours is jealous" I laugh this time as my hand falls to my side. Then I just resort to a smile. "It's probably for the better. I don't want to hurt Natsuki's feelings" I didn't need to finish that thought, but my mind did anyways. 'cause that could be painful for us both' "And since you two are still an item. I shouldn't have done that. No hard feelings right?" About this time is when Yukina would be sauntering in and up to the counter. I chirp to her, "Good Morning, Yukina-sama. And I wish I could get you another cup, but the coffee pot is broken" my smile darkened for the briefest of moments as I savor the next words that flow from my mouth. "It broke when I tried to make the next pot." I finally had a moment to torment my tormentor and it felt good. I smiled innocently and let my dimples show in that uber cute mode. I then looked at Seiki. "Oh Seiki, this is Yukina-sama. A regular here at coffee shop." Then looking back to Yukina I continue, "Seiki is my psuedo- older- brother."

Jyn

While getting ready, I wondered if what I was doing was really okay; it seemed innocent enough. I decided that I wouldn’t think too hard on it. So long as I kept my intentions within line, things should be okay. I was able to smell familiar scents coming from the kitchen. Many days, this smell was the thing that I woke to. She had her special ways of taking care of me at home. Most of the interaction between Izumi and I were at the office; the home was where Shiori seemed to shine even despite the fact that she was far from domesticated. She did her best and did a good job at it. After completing my preparations for the day at my leisure, I find that she actually did create a breakfast in a swift amount of time. Grabbing my coat and pulling it over my shoulders, I walked into the living room and looked over to where Shiori was. She looked at home in the kitchen in a nostalgic way. I look over her with an unconscious soft smile. With a nod, I notice the food that was prepared and comment, “Ah, you made it to go. Thank you…”

Seiki

My spirits drop as she speaks stating that being broken up from what we were doing was for the better. I didn’t mean for it to end up like that; it wasn’t until recently that I started to see Akera in a new light. I wondered if maybe something was wrong with me for thinking like that, but it wasn’t as if I didn’t have a reason. On no hard feelings, I look down and to the side, “well… it’s not like th…” Around this time, the interruption from a lady comes up. I pause my words and look to her and the interaction that occurs between the two. It was hard for me to read the relationship between the both of them, so I didn’t really try to. When I am looked at, I snap to coming out of my thoughts and then look to the other lady as I speak in a respectful tone, “it’s very nice to meet you.” I had to recognize what she said; I was like her big brother and that was my role to fill. I just needed to refocus after what happened.

.Shiori

I turn back to grab the breakfast I had made along with the coffee, twisting the lid securely into place. I bought him this travel mug. Its one of the sturdy kinds where the lid won't go and pop off. I turn with everything in hand just as he walks into the living room, looking at me like he use to when we were together. It makes my heart flutter and heat slide down my spine. I want him. He looks so handsome dressed as the Commissioner of Div12. I smile warmly at his thank you and walk over to him.

"Of course I did. You did say you needed to get to work. And while I have delayed you quite a bit. I don't want you to be too late," I say to him and hold out the items to him. I would wait till he took them and then my hands would reach out and smooth out the last wrinkle and fix the collar of his button up polo. I step back and nod. "You look good in those clothes.. But I sorta miss your old clothes," I say to him. I smile once more. "I'll clean up really quick. Umm.. If you want to wait you can. But I'll lock up when I leave if you like," I say to him and saunter back intot he kitchen, dumping the soiled items into the sink. He's the one who turned me into a bit of a neat freak.

.Yukina

The little witch. I sigh as she mentions the pot is broken. For some reason I don't want to believe her, but I'm playing nice this morning. I arch a brow at the slight evil I can see in her cute smile. Hmm.. Maybe she is pmsing and using me as an outlet. I've had to deal with it before. I don't mind all too much. I know how to handle having a girlfriend. Though is she my girlfriend? Odd question now. But we are going on a date, yet that doesn't mean we are 'dating'. Bah. I hate when I start going into specifics.

I look at the boy she introduces me to and I hold out my hand. "Reitosuru Yukina. Nice ta meet ya," I greet, my voice a bit gruff and my eyes narrow slightly in suspicious of the 'brother' figure.

Jyn

Looking down at the breakfast items that were presented to me, I take the items from Shiori, holding the coffee in my right hand and the food in the left. I look back up to her with a soft gaze, my gaze followers her hand to my collar and then back to her. I could tell she was enjoying this; to be truthful, I didn’t mind being pampered. Stuff like this I had grown used to. “Thanks,” I say casually to the remark about my clothing; I was glad she wasn’t going to tease me about being stiff, not that it would be a huge character change. As she speaks about cleaning up, I make the comment, “if you lock up when you leave… then how will you leave the key?” It’s a coy manner of speaking as I called her scheme to keep the key in her possession. Turning away from her, I let it go as if it wasn’t a big deal, stating, “anyway, I’m off to work. Ja.” With that, I would proceed to the door, somehow manage to get it open and from there, if not stopped, I would leave the apartment.
