The leader of the Rugafuji gang walked up to Yori and put his hand on her shoulder. "Hey, little lady. We haven't seen you around town before, maybe we should change that. My name is Kagami." His lackeys hanging behind him started grinning.
"Please remove your hands from me." Yori said without bothering to look at him.
Kagami pulled her to him and grabbed her chin, forcing her to look up at him. "Didn't anyone tell you that it's rude to not look at someone when talking to them?"
Yusuke looked at Kurama. "We have to do something, Kurama. We can't just leave her to these punks." Kurama tensed as he was about to jump forward to help, but he froze. "What's wrong?" Yusuke asked then looked back towards Yori and the gang.
A new face had appeared and grabbed Kagami's arm, pulling it off of Yori. "Didn't anyone tell you that it's rude to harass young ladies?" He moved his arm in front of Yori and moved her behind him. He was about Kurama's height with black hair, his bangs stopping right above his eyes. His eyes were crimson red, like Hiei's. He was wearing black pants with a gray tank top. He was rather thin, but his muscles were noticeable.
Kagami got up in the stranger's face. "What's it to you, tough guy?"
The newcomer squeezed Kagami's wrist, making a cracking sound. "Get lost." Kagami yelled in pain and then ran off with his lackeys. "Tsk. Too easy." He turned back around to Yori. "Are you alright now?" Yori nodded. "Good, I'm Sen. And you are?"
"My name is Yori. Thank you for the help." Yori turned around and started walking away. Sen followed after Yori and walked by her side.
"Hey now, there's no need to run off like that, I just want to make sure you're alright. I'll see you home. There have been way too many punks like that around nowadays." Yori didn't say anything so they continued to walk in silence with Yusuke, Kuwabara, and Kurama trailing behind them without being noticed. "So… Are you new around here?"
More silence followed.
"So you look like you're a high school student, like me. What school do you go to?
"Meiou High School."
"Oh, me too!" Yori looked up at him, looking like she didn't believe a word out of his mouth. "I do, alright. You can be tough and smart at the same time." Sen retorted. They continued to walk until they passed by a candy store that was next to Nagasashi Street. "Hey, hold on! Do you like pocky?"
"I don't know what that is." Yori answered. Sen stopped in his tracks, causing Yori to do so as well.
Grabbing Yori by her wrist, Sen dragged her into the candy store. "Nope. C'mon. Let's go." They walked inside and Sen bought four boxes of pocky.
Yori looked down at the box that Sen handed to her; it said that they were chocolate covered biscuit sticks. She opened the box and the packet inside, pulling one out. After staring at it for a second, she took a bite out of it. Yori's eyes widened a little then continued to eat the delicious treat.
"Haha! I knew you'd like it! Here, you can take the other boxes as well, I can get some later. Let's get you home." Sen and Yori walked out of the store and headed to the Nagasashi Motel.
Once they reached the motel, Sen said goodbye and said that he hoped to see her around school on Monday. He left and Yori walked into her room.
Yusuke turned to Kurama and Kuwabara. "Alright, how's that for a first watch? What'd you think?"
"She's kinda weird. She always looked… sad and bored." Kuwabara answered.
Kurama nodded, "Apathetic, Kuwabara."
"Yeah, that! Oh! What about that Sen guy? He seemed alright."
"I dunno. He seemed alright, but you never know anything about someone until you really get to know them," Yusuke said. "Well who wants to do the first separate watch for the rest of the night?"
"I'll do it!" Kuwabara answered.
Yusuke and Kurama nodded their heads and then left Kuwabara to his watch, which turned out to be pretty uneventful.
