Dark Alliance
Reiyez and Kohaji 
20th-Aug-2006 08:00 pm
"Second Street..." read Reiyez as he and a tall, rather heavy-clad man strolled down a roadway surrounded by average-looking grey stone buildings, shops mostly. They had just passed by a sign reading those very words. "Catchy name," he added, putting his hands behind his head and looking at the sky for a second.

The man, something between eighteen and mid-twenty (it was difficult to tell from what he wore and how he carried himself), glanced around at either side of the street, face indicating right away that he was a more straightforward, serious and righteous person than his friend. He wore much armour, of dark colours, and carried a one-handed katana-like sword of very intricate design (from what could be seen) in a sheath at his belt. A cape flowed out from his shoulders, partially concealling his other (and primary) weapon - a huge, one-sided steel blade with handholds on its other side. It was used by being either thrown like a boomerang or gripped by the handholds - it didn't have the handle of a sword. He also had a necklace with a fair-sized red gem hanging from it. Those sensitive to magic would notice that both the sword at his belt and the gem had a fair aura to them.

"But anyway," said Reiyez, looking around once or twice. "I saw that notice on fire raining down from the sky before the bulletin board went victim to it too. You think someone's taking care of it?"

"Most likely," the other replied. "From what I've seen, many, if not all of the Ten'yo have gathered here. This kind of situation wouldn't be overlooked by them all."

"Good," replied Reiyez, sighing once. "Kohaji, let's find a resturant here somewhere, I'm starving..."

"...Weren't you just at an Inn?" he inquired.

"More of a pub, or a bar. I don't know, they all serve booze..." muttered Reiyez in reply. "But yeah, I got, um... sidetracked."

"A woman?"
"Well, you could have had dinner with her."
"Oh no I couldn't."
"...I'm not about to believe that she came on too quickly for you."
"Oh, no, she was fine..."
"...I don't think I'll ask further."
"You'd damn well better not."

"Hmm... There should be a resturant somewhere here..." muttered Kohaji, still scanning left and right occasionally. "Perhaps you'll have better luck with one of the locals that pass us by in this road."

Reiyez sighed once. "With my luck today, the first and hottest girl that passes by will be a lesbian..."
19th-Sep-2006 10:27 pm (UTC) - GinUingu & Merlin
Little did Reiyez know, fate was once again determined to ruin what little good was left in his day.
"I swear to god when I find Chaos I'll..." A rather stunning woman muttered under her breath.
Merl couldn't help it, he chuckled softly behind a raised hand.
The woman had long silken silver hair that hung loosely down her back, an attractive set of narrow eyes that was set perfectly in her pale flawless skin.
With a figure that could drop any man's chin, her body was covered in a tight black mini-skirt showing off an attractive set of legs, and her chest was covered by a loose long-sleeve blouse, all covered with a black cloak.
The second was a man dressed purely in white with a single silver celtic cross belting his cloak shut, his golden uneven hair trailing over his eyes.

"It's not his fault you made the bet... Ginny." He snorted horribly and nearly fell into a cart full of hay.
Ginny turned and snarled, showing a set of sharp canines.
"As soon as I kill your foster brother you're next." She snapped.
20th-Sep-2006 12:40 am (UTC) - Reiyez & Kohaji
They walked silently a few moments more, before Reiyez noticed someone who jutted out of the crowd like a sore thumb stuck in his eye. He stopped dead for a minute, watching the delicate young lady begin to slip right by.

"...How lucky am I, Kohaji?"

"In general or just recently?" he replied, stopping a step ahead of him and quickly able to discover his reason for stopping so suddenly.

"...There's no way that the Fates would screw with me after saying what I just said, huh?" Reiyez remarked. "I mean, the gods are generous."
"You apparently haven't been around them very long."
"...Given. But I know good fortune when I see it sauntering by."

With that, and with Kohaji's impatient observation, Reiyez backtracked quickly and had himself in front of the young lady's path before anyone could argue.

"Yo. I hear there's trouble around town. It's a little unsafe for a young bishojou- um, maiden to be wandering without a skilled mercenary bodyguard to watch over her."

"And now he's a skilled mercenary bodyguard..."
20th-Sep-2006 12:47 am (UTC) - GinUingu & Merlin
Ginny stopped when someone entered her path, her expression going from furious to mildly perturbed.
"Maiden..." Merl snickered and stumbled again doing his damned best to not die laughing. "He just implied you're a delicate, and helpless female..."
Ginny short Merl a 'shut up or die' look before turning back to the male.
"Thank you for the offer, but as you can see I have a perfectly capable assistant behind me." She said crisply, ignoring as Merl finally lost it and fell over laughing.
Spinning around with a hiss, Gin launched a throwing dagger at the laughing blond.

Merl laughed as he quickly rolled to dodge it and continued holding his sides as he fell down laughing again.

"Stupid asshole..." Gin fumed.
20th-Sep-2006 12:54 am (UTC) - Reiyez
He tilted his head a moment, noticing that the both of them must have some fighting skill. Not that it had him impressed just yet.

"Well, he can dodge..." Reiyez said agreeably, in a tone that promised a 'but' soon enough. "...And I wouldn't want to insult just who you decide to pick, but how'd you be interested in a little better company than..."

He spared a glance to the spasming mound of laughter on the street, but returned it to her visage and its many 'fine points' soon after. "...You know."
20th-Sep-2006 01:01 am (UTC) - GinUingu & Merlin
Merl who finally managed to get on his feet shook his head laughing.
"You are barking up the entirely wrong tree." He commented before bursting into laughter again, cocking his head to one side, he wiped tears from his eyes and shook his head again.
"Nevermind, I just got called back, I'll see you later, Ginny." He said sweetly.
Gin hissed again and this time threw a lightning bolt at the man, who quickly blocked it with an invisible barrier.
"Better luck next time." He replied softly and started walking down the street, ignoring Gin who fumed.

"Ass hat." She hissed flipping him off before turning to Reiyez, giving him a glance over, she pursed her lips with an expression that said 'too young' but shrugged it off.

"Since I need an escort to fend off as many male offenders as possible, I accept your offer for better company." She said shortly and crossed her arms, unfortunately parting her cloak allowing better view of her figure.

"My name is GinUingu. Deign to call me Ginny, you might just not have children." She warned.
20th-Sep-2006 01:13 am (UTC) - Reiyez and Kohaji
Lacking invisible barriers and any other means of protecting himself from the pain of sterilization, Reiyez nodded sweetly and gave a confident smirk.

"You have my word, my petite Mage," Reiyez said, quickly adding before he thought he had crossed something. "Then what will it be? Gin? Uingu? The full name might be a little hard to wrap my lips around at first."

He really did hope this person was a Mage. There were two kinds of lightning-throwers out there; the kind that specialized in it, and the kind that was just badass and powerful enough to know it for no reason.

Kohaji watched patiently from a distance, wondering if (or rather when) his partner was going to abandon him and any possibly duty they might have for another attractive woman.
20th-Sep-2006 01:15 am (UTC) - GinUingu
Gin gaved him a pointed glance and let her arms fall to her sides, once again letting the cloak fall about her shoulders.
"Gin. And don't give me any cutesy nicknames, I've endured enough for a lifetime and the next." She said shortly and then glanced at Kohaji.
"You have a name? And is he with you?" She asked pointing to the man.
20th-Sep-2006 01:29 am (UTC) - Reiyez and Kohaji
"Ehh, cutesey nicknames..." said Reiyez, waving it off. "Gin works fine. Myself, I'm Reiyez.
"Oh, him..."
He looked over to Kohaji, noting his rather nettled expression.
"...What? How about you, eh, disperse for now, and I'll meet up with you once I'm done here."

With a small sigh, Kohaji stepped forward, reaching the two.
"In most cases, I would, but I think you might want to really learn about wherever she is going," he muttered in his noticeably deeper voice. "I don't think she would have an escort to help her along here, no matter how many people give her a second glance. She seems more than capable to deal with them."

He looked over to her. "Pardon," he bowed his head slightly. "Captain Kohaji, this... 'mercenary''s advisor."
"Fair enough."
20th-Sep-2006 01:35 am (UTC) - GinUingu
An obvious lie, she didn't even need Merl to tell her that much, Gin sighed, but her lips quirked into an amused smile at the two's antics.
To any straight male this would be wear the angels start singing....

Flipping her hair over her shoulder she smirked.
"Well though of, if I can be assured I'll have the two of you escorting me, I can do away with this." She unclasped her cloak and threw it in the air, ignoring it as it vanished in a swirl of cloth. "It doesn't do much for the temperature." She commented as she fanned herself and gave them a smirk.

"Well then, I'm heading towards towards a rendezvous with a companion of mine, of course, the bastard would have to pick the dirtiest and scum filled section of town, just near the entrance into the underground sewer system in the slums. If you're interested in joining me, I am of course open to paying you both."
20th-Sep-2006 01:54 am (UTC) - Re: GinUingu
"Pay...?" said Reiyez, as thought the word were foreign to him in the presence of the woman's full view. Even Kohaji had to avert his gaze to keep from being subject to reflexively staring. "I'm sure you are... And, I mean, if you find yourself short, it wouldn't be too big a deal. I'm sure you can come up with another way to display your gratitude..."

'He only uses big words at times like these...' thought Kohaji to himself. 'It's sad that to stimulate his mind, you need to stimulate his... libido.'

"What are the chances of having to put our blades to practice before, during, or after this rendezvous?" asked Kohaji, still looking calmly away, down the street.
20th-Sep-2006 02:13 am (UTC) - GinUingu
Gin made a face.
"Before, very high, during, not likely, after, not at all because as soon as I have fulfilled my duty in meeting and discussing some matters, I'm leaving the quickest way possible." She said curtly and did not open the matter for further discussion.

Smirking, she gave Reiyez a once over giving his second option of paying a shake of her head.
"I'm flattered, but no offense, you're a bit young aren't you? You're only... 14?" She hazarded the guess.
20th-Sep-2006 02:27 am (UTC) - Reiyez & Kohaji
Reiyez flinched.
"...Well, close. Sixteen."
Kohaji gave a light shrug. He was a stickler for the truth, especially if Reiyez wanted to bend it to his own advantage.
"Well, we haven't learned our way around this place just yet. Please lead on," he said, ignoring the death stare Reiyez was giving him.
20th-Sep-2006 02:31 am (UTC) - GinUingu
Gin smiled.
"15 isn't such a bad age." She commented taking the lead, ignoring the looks she began receiving.
"In fact, I was 14 when I had my first lover, so I suppose not too young." She commented idly as she walked, her high heels clicking on the stones as she flipped her hair behind her shoulder again and glanced at them.
20th-Sep-2006 02:39 am (UTC) - Reiyez and Kohaji
"Of course," said Reiyez, looking a little elated by her comment. He got in stride quickly. Kohaji took a moment, but followed as well, left hand rested on the hilt of the unique sword at his belt.

By a glance, one could tell which of the two was more experienced in combat and exploration. Reiyez's sword and needles were nothing to sneeze at, but in sheer power it seemed that Kohaji was the superior.

(By the way, I wouldn't mind seeing what happens to Tina and Heji while doing this. XD)
20th-Sep-2006 02:42 am (UTC) - GinUingu
(OOC: *is trying to focus on homework like a good student and can only do one at a time so bite me* XD)

Moving fast for someone on high heels, Gin strode through the street as if she owned it, moving forward, it seemed as if she was heading towards a large spire in the distance, before sharply turning left onto a broader street and slowing slightly so the others could catch up to her.
20th-Sep-2006 02:57 am (UTC) - Reiyez and Kohaji
Reiyez caught up quickly, though he had to jog surprisingly. Kohaji had a little more trouble, weaving through the crowds and muttering an apology once in a while.
"That must be tricky," mentioned Reiyez, noticing her heels. "You don't fight in those too, do you?"
20th-Sep-2006 03:00 am (UTC) - GinUingu
Gin smiled at him as the suddenly empty street seemed so much darker.
"You're about to find out." She commented. As a black shadow appeared behind her, she quickly lifted her heel and crushed it down on the assailing man's foot, and as he yelped in pain, she shoved her elbow back, then grabbed his arm and flipped him over her hip flooring him.
Dusting off her hands she shook her head.
"3 snipers on the roof, 6 more in the alleys up ahead, I apolgize, it appears there will be fighting before the meeting." She muttered glancing at the man who lay there groaning.
No more then you're tavern drunk, cheap hire.
20th-Sep-2006 03:18 am (UTC) - Reiyez and Kohaji
"Oh, fun, long-range fighters," said Reiyez, drawing his blade and taking up a handful of needles. He glanced around, trying to spot one.
"Any luck, Kohaji?" he asked to the man, who was to his back at the moment.

Putting a hand behind his back, beneath his cape, the sound of something unhooking from beneath was heard. The tip of a solid, heavy blade hit the ground, and gripping its handle, he swung it around and sent it suddenly at a rooftop, breaking right through the bottom of it and sending a figure into the gap made by the collapsing gravel. What's more, the blade burst out from the roof again, arcing around and returning to Kohaji's hand, though the weight did make him slide a foot or two.
20th-Sep-2006 03:23 am (UTC) - GinUingu
Gin clapped her hands smirking.
"Most impressive, I'm certainly glad I hired you big boys now." She purred seductively. Then sighed as someone grabbed her shoulder.
"Don't you know..." She began touching his hand, the man shrieked and fell to the ground smoking as lightning rippled across his skin.
"Any man who touches a lady without her permission is either full of himself, or a sleaze." She commented as she pointed her finger at another sniper.

"3-0-clock gentlemen."
20th-Sep-2006 03:42 am (UTC) - Reiyez and Kohaji
"Mine," Reiyez said, elated by the girl's compliments. Aiming carefully, he flung several needles in his direction, and despite not falling, heard a suitable groan of pain.
"Heh..." he chuckled. "Hopefully I got an ar-"
Suddenly Kohaji's blade swung in front of him, deflecting an arrow.
"Those needles are more for medium range," Kohaji reminded him. Reiyez muttered.

"...Hey, he's using a bow," he noticed.
"And?" replied Kohaji.
"...Well, nothing, I just thought it was neat. Anyway..."
He suddenly dashed forward, hopping up various objects to reach the rooftop's height in a way that seemed to show him as something more than the average swordsman. When he had cleared the final bound between him and the bowman, he cut the weapon in two before throwing a needle dead into his neck, leaving him unconscious.

Waving down at them, he smiled. Kohaji, however, sighed. Not only had Reiyez's identity as a Ten'yo been likely exposed again, but he was free pickings for the last sniper, wherever he was.
"Get down, Reiyez..."
20th-Sep-2006 03:48 am (UTC) - GinUingu
Gin smiled and shook her head.
Perfect, both of them Ten'yo for another faction, how lovely, just what she needed. She should have known though, her suspicions had been pricked the minute she had sensed Kohaji's faint charmed gems, but she wasn't about to make a fool of herself in public for it.

It was partially why she'd insisted Kohaji accompany them. Smirking she crossed her arms and glanced up, smirking directly at the last sniper who had hidden himself in the rays of sun.

"I see you." She commented the ground around her begining to spark in the air and ripple the space around her, because of the magnetic charge small pebbles floated off the ground as her hair rose and whipped slightly around her face as she glanced at the last few men on the ground.

Lightning flew from the base of her feat in a deadly bolt, shocking all 5 groundsmen to the floor.

"The sniper is all yours cuties." She said smiling and stepping back, not letting her pale face show, high cost for keeping up the spells.
20th-Sep-2006 03:58 am (UTC) - Reiyez and Kohaji
"I suppose I'll take care of it," said Kohaji, placing his large weapon in his left hand and drawing his sword out. It sung with an intense whistling wind as he drew it back, and then swung it, sending a confusing mass of cutting wind at the final enemy. The man was suspended by it for a few moments, then thrust, likely worse-for-wear, to the half of the roof that they couldn't see.
"That should do..." he said, sheathing it. Just then, Reiyez bound down near them, sighing once and putting his sword away.
"I didn't know if you wanted them dead or just unconscious, so yeah," he said, shrgging. "I saw that light show from the roof, though. Nice voodoo, Gin-chan."

Kohaji didn't speak, but awaited the questions that would likely soon be formed.
20th-Sep-2006 04:02 am (UTC) - GinUingu & Guess whoooo....
Sitting calmly on a barrel, she sighed and let her eyes slip shut, careful to keep her legs crossed.
"Nicknames." She reminded Reiyez and shrugged. "Just a lightning spell, it's about all I'm good for. Of course if Merlin that stupid ass we're here I wouldn't have known about them far sooner. As it is-"
"He's not, and I am." A snide voice interrupted dragging a bleeding corpse behind him, another tavern drunk.
Dropping the body that was riddled with arrows, he stretched and grinned.
"Soo, Ginny, I see you've met up with my latest pet." He commented smiling snidely.
"About time." Gin commented. "And kiss off on the Ginny crap." She snapped.
Mercution smiled and waved daintily to Reiyez.
20th-Sep-2006 04:14 am (UTC) - Reiyez and Kohaji
"SHIT!" Reiyez screamed, dashing behind Kohaji suddenly and peeking from behind his arm. "Not you..."
Kohaji, reasonably confused, looked over his shoulder at his companion, resting his large weapon on the ground.
"...You know him?"
"We kissed."
"...Correction, he kissed me and I ran away. Fast."
"...Well, you've had a full day," Kohaji said, shaking his head a little. He addressed Mercutio.
"Captain Kohaji. I think you've met my companion already."
25th-Sep-2006 10:35 pm (UTC) - Me. o-o
