Next morning. . .
SPR offices. . .
Mai. . .Mai. . .you awake Mai. . .
What time is it?
It's 6 a.m. Housho said
Why are you waking me up this early!
We are making breakfast for all sleepy head. . We did not want you to miss out. Come on get up.
Mai ( Shaking her head)
. . . and breakfast had to be this early? Who's idea was this?
We need to plan our next move. Everyone is up. I don't see why we need to watch you drool as we are eating. .
I do not drool!! Said Mai as she walked away..muttering
Why must you vex her Naru. . I mean really. .
So Mai. . .did you have any of your special dreams?
I don't know. . . maybe. . . It's just I was dreaming with Rage. . . yet it was not a dream.
Is he still alive! I thought Naru finish him. .
No. . .he is gone. . . but I think my dream was from my past life. I saw myself wearing a beautiful long green jade dress in the arms of a white haired man. . No not a man a demon. And there was Rage smiling at us with another dark haired demon. I could feel their devotion. . . and I loved it. . .and I could feel the love they had for me.
Your past life? And you mean to tell me you were in love with these demons?
Yes . . . and it scares me.
Mai. . .
That their love for me was so intense. That they will stop at nothing to have me by their side.
Do not be frightened Mai. We are with you.
That's just it John. . .I know that . . but they will stop at nothing . I could not bare it if I loose one of you.
Yasuhara (putting his arms around her)
Mai don't think like that. We will all get through this love. Have faith in us.
Lin ( while typing in his computer)
We are a strong team Mai. Demons or not.
Plus Mai. . You are to important to us. We would never be able to let you go. If we have to fight..then will just have to fight.
Don't worry so much kiddo said Housho ( laying a hand on her head) like Ayako said we won't let anyone or anything take you from us
(I hate seeing her so scared..so loss he thought as he watch his team try to comfort the woman he loved)
Mai. . Tea
Really Naru. . .Tea?
Naru (with a bored expression)
Mai (as she stomps off toward the kitchen)
Yasuhara ( as he follows her )
Good call Naru
What do you mean? Good call?
He got her angry. Changed her train of thought. You know when Mai gets angry...all she sees is red.
I think an angry Mai is better than a scared one.
So we have two more demons to worry about. Anybody have any clue as to what we are going to do about them?
Housho (looking pensive)
We have the office full of charms and protection spells. . As long as we keep Mai here she should be fine
We can't keep Mai here forever, you know..
I don't think Mai will stay here for long. . . She has school. As well as a life out there.
We need to go back to the institute. See if we can find any clues. Father John, Lin and I will go to the institute. Miss Hara and Yasuhara need to go to the city archives and look into Mai's past. Takigawa and Miss Masuzaki stay with Mai. Do not let her out of your sight. Even if the office is protected I don't want to let our guards down.
Tea is ready!
Sorry we took so long. We were setting the table. Let's eat!
No one knew that they were being watch by a raven. No one knew that he had listened to their plans. . .and now he had a plan of his own. Watching his Beloved smile to those unworthy of her he promised that no one was going to stop him from getting what was his. . . No one he thought as he flied away to join his brother. ..
I'm back!! Sorry it took so long!! Life is all I can say.
