"Yori? Are you awake?" Kurama said, knocking on the door softly.
"Mmm.. I'm sleeping... Go awaaaay Kurama..." Kurama heard Yori mumble through the door.
Kurama sighed, "But school is going to start in an hour and it takes about twenty minutes to walk there. And you mustn't forget to eat breakfast."
"AHHHHHHH! It's already 6 o' clock!? Kurama! Why didn't you wake me sooner!?"
Kurama chuckled while he heard Yori running around the room, getting ready. "Breakfast will be on the table, I would say take your time but..."
"Yeah, yeah, yeah, I'm coming!"
Kurama walked down stairs, placing pancakes, sausage links and eggs that he made a few minutes ago on a plate for him and her. He sat down and began to eat, and a few minutes later, he turned his head to see Yori running down the stairs. She had her uniform on and she let her hair hang down today, so it reached her waist. He smiled at her, "Good morning, Yori."
"Mhmm.." She sat down in the chair next to him and rested her head on his shoulder, "It's too early in the morning for all this... I'm too sleepy for breakfast and school..."
He chuckled, "Having a proper breakfast is very important. Come on, at least eat a little so you won't be hungry all day."
She covered her mouth as she yawned, then sat up to eat some of her breakfast. Kurama, who had already finished his plate, got up to pour them both a glass of orange juice. Handing her a cup, he drank from the other. By the time Yori had finished her breakfast, it was 6:30.
"I suppose we should get going so we aren't late," Yori said.
Kurama nodded his head, "Agreed. Wait here," he instructed. Yori tilted her head to the side as he went upstairs for a minute. He came back downstairs holding two briefcases and jackets. "Here you are," he said handing Yori her bag and the spare jacket. "Even though it snows for half the school year, the school still require women to wear the uniform's skirt. So wear this so you wont be as cold."
Yori smiled and put on the jacket. The two walked out of the house and started walking to the school. About fifteen minutes into walking, Yori yawned loudly.
"You know, if you had gone to bed before four in the morning, you probably wouldn't be so tired," Kurama said while smiling.
Yori looked over to him and laughed, "Yeah but where's the fun in going to bed before then when you're having a sleepover? Keiko and Botan are fun, I enjoyed hanging out with them," she said with a smile on her face.
Kurama stared at the girl, "That reminds me. Are you feeling okay? You ran upstairs in such a hurry last night and you haven't said anything about it."
Yori blushed a bit, "Oh... I'm fine, don't worry about me, Kurama." Kurama stopped walking, causing Yori to do the same. Yori tilted her head, "What's up?"
Kurama looked down at the sidewalk, "I wanted to apologize to you, Yori."
"Huh? What for?"
"I feel like I made you uncomfortable yesterday. Before Sen came into the room, and I almost kissed you. I'm sorry," Kurama said, not looking up.
Yori stared at Kurama and then giggled a little, "Please don't apologize, you didn't make me uncomfortable, really! I left because, well... I thought you were mad at me because of what happened..."
"Not at all!" Kurama said, completely shocked at Yori's reply.
"I'm glad, then!" Yori smiled and then hugged Kurama tightly. She then grabbed his jacket sleeve and started pulling him towards the school. "Come on, Kurama, or we're gonna be late!"
Kurama chuckled, "Alright, I'm coming."
"That reminds me! I have to kick Sen's ass for the way he acted and demand an explanation since you won't tell me anything!"
"Punishment before questioning?"
"Well duh. It's no fun any other way!" The two started running towards the school since there was only a few minutes until their first class started. Yori didn't find Sen until Trigonometry, and she ignored him the whole class. When 11:40 came around, Yori and Kurama walked out of World History. "Well I doubt we'll see him where we ate lunch the last time, so where do you think we'll find him?" She asked Kurama.
Kurama thought for a moment before pointing up, "The roof, perhaps."
Yori nodded her head before walking away, Kurama following behind her. They got to the stairs that would lead up and started climbing. Once they got to the top, Yori opened the door and looked around, seeing Sen sitting on the edge of the roof. "There you are," she said.
He turned around, "Oh, it's you, Yori. What are you doing up here-" Yori punched the top of Sen's head. "OW! What the hell was that for?!"
"What the hell? What the hell? You're going to ask me "What the hell"!? What the hell is wrong with you!? You burst through Kurama'a door and attacked him with a sword! Where the hell did you even learn or get permission to learn how to wield a sword!? I should kick your ass off the roof right now! I want a god damn explanation!"
Kurama coughed, "Yori, you shouldn't use such foul language."
"Stay out of it, Kurama!" Yori yelled. Kurama raised his hands up in defeat before Yori turned back to Sen. "I want an explanation. Why did you attack Kurama and I want to know now."
Sen looked at Kurama over Yori's shoulder and the demon thief nodded his head. He looked back at Yori, "Because I told him to not let any harm come to you or I would show him pain he had never experienced before."
Yori glared at him, "And why did you tell him that?"
"Because you're my sister."
"Excuse me, sir, you can't just walk into the school!" The school's secretary said, running up to a man twice her size.
"I need to find someone." The man said, not turning around.
"Yes, but you need to fill out a paper to enter the school, and then we can call whoever you need down to the office."
The man turned around, he had long black hair with one black streak. He was wearing a black shirt and pants along with a black trench coat and sunglasses. Slightly sliding down the sunglasses, he showed glowing red eyes. "I don't need to fill out any papers. You will call Yoriana and Rensen here." The secretary stood there, her eyes glazed over as if in a trance. "Now," he said, and the girl turned back around, walking into the main office.
"I'm your what!?"
"Are you hard of hearing? I said you're my sister."
"B-but... I don't remember you! I don't remember you being my brother!"
Sen stood up from where he was sitting, "That's because you lost your memories, you know that."
"Then why didn't you say anything when we met!?" Yori asked.
Kurama placed a hand on her shoulder, "Yori, there is something you need to know."
"You knew about him being my brother and you didn't say anything?" Yori asked, turning around and facing Kurama.
"I found out the night we had our conversation."
"And after that I trusted you to tell me things! I can't believe you both hid this from me!" Yori hit Kurama's hand off of her shoulder and ran away from the two, leaving the roof.
"Yori!" Sen and Kurama yelled before looking at each other, very worried.
Yori slammed the door behind her before running down the flight of stairs, tears running down her face. She couldn't believe Kurama had betrayed her trust and that Sen was her brother. Why wouldn't they tell her something like this?
"Hey, Yori!" A girl's voice said from behind her.
Yori turned around, it was her friend from dance class, Natsumi and her boyfriend, Kai. "Oh... Hello Natsumi, Kai..."
Natsumi and Kai noticed the tears on her face, "Oh what happened, Yori? Are you alright?"
Yori wiped away her tears, "Yeah, it's nothing to worry about it."
"Was it Suichi?" Natsumi asked.
"Why would you say that?"
This time Kai answered, "Well you two have seemed to be rather close since you came to Meiou High. Even though you've only been here for a few days and Suichi doesn't really date, everyone seems to think that you two will get together, and I agree with them."
Yori blushed before looking down. "Oh... No, Suichi didn't do anything bad..."
"But he did do something, didn't he." Natsumi said, more stating a fact than asking a question.
"I've got to go, I'll see you tomorrow Natsumi, and you in Literature, Kai..." Yori said, not answering her question before running off again. By the time she stopped running, ignoring countless teacher's, "Stop running in the halls," lectures, she had reached the main office.
"Yoriana. I finally found you."
Yori turned around at the sound of someone talking and saw a very tall man standing a few feet away from her. Looking around, she saw that there was no one else in the area, "Um. Sorry but I think you have me confused for someone else, my name is Yori, not Yoriana."
The man walked over to her and raised a hand to her face. She flinched away before he wiped the leftover tears from her face. "I wouldn't forget my precious Yoriana, even if you had forgotten me," he lowered his sunglasses again, revealing his glowing red eyes. "I'm going to need you to come with me."
Kurama and Sen were walking into their Literature class after Yori had run away from the two. "I'll tell her about what happened to her after school," Kurama started. "Feel free to stop by."
"I would have dropped by even without your permission," Sen said.
Kurama nodded, "Yes, but now you at least have my permission."
Kurama turned around to see Kai, looking at little worried, "Hello Kai, what can I help you with," he said with a polite smile.
"Well, I want to know what you did to make Yori so upset."
Kurama and Sen looked at each other before Kurama turned back to Kai, "There was a bit of a misunderstanding. How did you figure she was upset?"
"She was crying. She said she'd see me here but she's not here yet." With that, the bell rang, signalling the start of class.
"Yori has never been late to a single class since she started coming here. She said it was unprofessional to be late," Sen said.
Kurama nodded. The door threw itself open with Botan standing behind it. "Botan? What are you doing here?"
She walked over to Kurama and whispered to him, "Koenma needs you right now. It's about Yori." Botan and Kurama had worried eyes before they ran out of the class.
Sen and Kai looked confused and wondered where the red-head was going.
"Surely you didn't forget about your mission from Spirit World?" Botan asked while running out of the school.
"Of course not," Kurama said. "We were assigned to watch over Yori." Once outside the gates of the school, Botan pulled out her oar and the two were off to see Koenma. "Well? What happened?"
Botan looked back at him, "You'll hear about it soon enough, Koenma is gathering all of you to Spirit World, you'll be the last to arrive." Kurama nodded his head.
Once Botan and Kurama arrived at Koenma's office, Kurama noticed that the ruler's eye was twitching out of aggrivation.
"Finally! Now someone can tell me what's going on!" Yusuke yelled. Kurama turned his head and saw Yusuke, Kuwabara, and Hiei standing off to the side.
"Greetings, Koenma," Kurama said, bowing slightly. Koenma's eye continued to twitch out of anger.
"Well? Are you going to tell us why we're here, short stuff?" Kuwabara asked.
"..." Koenma jumped up onto his desk and took a deep breath, "I GAVE YOU ONE JOB! WATCH OVER THE GIRL! IT HASN'T EVEN BEEN A WEEK AND YOU LOST HER ALREADY!"
"What?!" Yusuke yelled, looking over to Kurama. "Kurama, it's your job to watch her during school, what happened?"
Koenma sat back down in his chair, much calmer now. "Well Kurama?"
Kurama looked in shock, "We were talking on the roof with Sen and she got upset. She ran off and I assumed she would be in the class when I got there, I had no idea that she left."
"She didn't leave, Kurama." Koenma said.
Koenma sighed, "Why don't you tell the others what you know. Starting from 2,500 years ago."
The gang looked over at Kurama. "2,500 years ago? You mean she's a demon?" Yusuke asked.
"Hn. I knew she was too smart to be a human," Hiei added on.
The demon fox closed his eyes for a moment before opening them back up. "Very well. I'll tell you what I know."
