Okay, sorry about the wait. I am currentely, admitting this without shame, eating my breakfast as I type this post! Hmmm... Oh, I have to tell you this though. My friends and I are making a cosplay movie. The filming is on firdays, saturdays, and sundays. I can't post on those days cause' I'll be out. I am sorry for this, I really am. Please put up with this. Thx Desu! Now, for the next chapter...
"I think... I think Somoue's..." Kurai looked around, as if for support to complete her sentence. Not that she found any. Sekomata looked at her expectantely, as if she had to finish. Kurai took in a deep breath and began to speak when all of a sudden, Sekomata's face froze. Not in fear, mind you, but in a kind of shsocking realization.
"Er, Sekomata?" Kurai began. Sekomata wasn't looking at her. Kurai shifted uncomfortably as she waited for the effect to pass. After a few minutes, Sekomata's face returned to normal and she managed to give Kurai a very weak grin.
"S-So what were you saying?" Here was the fearless assassin, Sekomata, whose name meant cat demon, stammering. Sekomata's cat ears drooped a bit in her effort to maintain a smile. Her blond hair clashed with her lavender eyes and for a minute, Sekomata's eyes clouded in doubt.
"Nothing. What just happened?" Kurai asked. Sekomata shook her head and continues to look at the sky.
"Well," Sekomata began very slowly. "Um, Somoue and I are connected, right?" Here, Sekomata paused and Kurai nodded. Sekomata plowed on. "Um, you see, while you were talking, Somoue sent me something. Her wherabouts." Kurai's eyes widened but Sekomata was not finished. She opened her mouth to continue and Kurai concentrated, more than anything, to hear the words.
Somoue wanted to clutch her head. But she also wanted to do a lot more. She wanted to break out of this mind prison and beat up all the Akatsuki members. But even for one such as herself, there would be no way for her to win. Somoue had recentely realized that the Akatsuki were scanning her memories. No big surprise. Somoue felt, with a jolt, another memory being activated...
"And I suppose you want us to take this stupid exam just to prove we are good shinobi? I don't think so." Kurai sniffed slightly and Somoue huffed.
"Come ON Ane-Sama. We got the competition in the bag! " Somue proceeded further. "And I'm gonna get in the bag with it! And only one of us is going to debag... alive." This earned Somoue a look of disgust and confusement from Kurai herself.
"You know, I wonder about your sanity sometimes. No, not sometimes, ALL the time." Kurai rolled her eyes and headed over to the sign-up. Somoue jumped up and down.
"YAH! I KNEW you would! Chocolate-Covered-Strawberry-Muffins!!!!!" Somoue shouted at the top of her lungs. Kurai edged away.
"I don't know you." Kurai looked away. Somoue scowled but then broke out laughing...
They were near it. That one memory. She of course, had plenty of memories before that one. But Somoue was worried. She couldn't keep on putting up defences forever. Eventually, she would run out of memories and they would find it. The one memory that would change everything...
"Somoue... she's defending that memory." Sekomata looked Kurai in the eye as she said this. Kurai bit her lip. Not that memory. Not that one...
"I... I don't think she can hold out for much longer. She told me she could, at the most, hold out for three days or so. We need to get there fast." Sekomata said with a hint of reproach in her voice. Kurai, forgetting self-control, lashed out at Sekomata.
"So you're saying this is MY fault?! You're saying that it's MY fault that she's in this situation?!" Kurai yelled, too angry to say much else.
"You remember what happened that say. And if it hadn't been for you, Somoue wouldn't have that weakness." Sekomata stated plainly. Kurai looked around, her vision starting to blur because of her tears. She couldn't help it... The memory was starting to show itsel and Kurai couldn't help but remmeber the start of that day and the birth of Somoue's downfall...
