Yuui just put his hands behind his head in a relaxed fashion. "Hm?" he asked, as if her reaction completely confused him, because obviously he hadn't just done something impressive. "Are we done then? Already?" He tilted his head back and looked at Jihae.

"I don't sense any more of them..." Jihae looked at the two bugs only long enough to make sure that they were indeed dead. "Megumi?"

"That mark on the land is starting to fade," Megumi said quietly. "It doesn't seem like there are any more than these two."

Yuui laughed as the water splashed him. "Just because something is large doesn't mean it's strong," he said. But he would play it that way if he wanted to. He could act like he was on the same level as everyone else even if he very much wasn't. Well, except for Kuro, perhaps.

"Such is the way of the trials," Miyuki commented. "Each on gets progressively harder." She looked at her sister. "Do you know our next one?"

Megumi shook her head. "I will likely receive it during my morning prayers." She finished purifying the water and the land but she felt quite weak for doing so. This place had been dead. Sick. It had taken a lot out of her fix that.

Jihae could tell. "Then we'll rest here until then," he said. The townsfolk would allow that, he figured, even if there were men in their party. After all, they'd just fixed the problem. They deserved a night of rest.

Yuui just smiled. He was never going to admit it too much. He just wasn't that easy. But he seemed terribly amused and maybe a little approving that she could so easily see past his mask. she'd never figure out the truth. If Kuro hadn't, this young girl who had spent far less time with him, didn't have a chance of it. But for now, he was amused.

"The only two of our group have gained the trust of the women who live here are now out of commission," Yuui pointed out. "And this one is not very diplomatic."

"Don't care," Miyuki said, not bothered that she wouldn't put the women here at ease.

Jihae sighed softly. "I'll handle it and arrange for places for us to stay so that the girls can recover." No one had been hurt so far but he knew that couldn't last as the trials got harder.

Yuui caught her like he was super used to princesses just swooning into his arms. He wasn't. But he certainly seemed like he was. But no, he was just that smooth naturally. He picked her up like she weighed not a thing. "Oopsy," he said with a laugh. She'd wanted to act so strong. How cute. But then he poked Kuro's arm. "Your princess could use a big strong hero right about now," he said.

Jihae kind of wanted to strangle Snake purely on the basis that he was a man and he was touching on his sister. But he recognized what Snake was doing. It was why he left him alone. He just ignored it but it was really hard. Really, really hard. "I don't want you to to do anything you're uncomfortable with, Drake," he said when the guy joined him. "You have said you have someone waiting for you back at home. I am, as of yet, unattached and able to charm my people as needed."

Miyuki laughed though Snake's sudden hyper affection had startled her. The laugh became pained though. She didn't know why he was so into her. He shouldn't be. He'd just get hurt. "People do suck," she agreed and smoothly stepped out of the hug.

Megumi smiled for Kuro picking her up and holding her like that. "What would I do without you?" she asked, feeling completely at ease in his arms. He was her protector, after all.

"Well, I'd just like for you to be prepared," Jihae said. "This is a village without men. They may well be interested. And we are embarking on a dangerous journey. Do not be surprised if they offer to bare your children in case you do not return."

Jiro, though he wanted to follow Drake, did not. He was not charming. He was socially awkward with humans. So he just hung back and felt a little awkward, unsure of what to do. He didn't much like the big violent man. But he also did because he killed all the guys after him. It was weird.

"I don't really need to sleep much..." Miyuki said. "I'm fine. Really." Did she look pale? She was suddenly self conscious and glanced down at the necklace. No, it was still a see through, pale purple in color. It was fine.

Megumi just laughed. "I like having you on my side," she said. She didn't mind that he was an angry man. She hoped that he would be able to calm that part of himself. But he already had someone in his life that was helping that.

"Oh no," Yuui said as he looked at Jiro. "We won't bite. Really. Well this one might but you just stick with me and you'll be fine," he said to Jiro with a smile.

"Oh..." Jiro said. He edged away from Kuro but he did stand next to Yuui.

"Probably. If you're a good liar they will buy it and leave you alone," Jihae said. In this day an age, continuing our bloodline was most important for men. So girls would offer if men went off to war or such.

Miyuki looked at the meat he was sticking in her face. "I don't know that I want your meat in my mouth," she commented. Which was kind of dirty. But she meant it both ways. Ish.

Mireya only laughed quietly. "Jiro, it's all right. Really. Kuro doesn't actually bite. He might look and act a little big and scary at times but it's not true. In his heart he's just a big softy. He wouldn't hurt a creature such as you." Because absols really weren't known for being problems to humans. They were just messengers of coming disaster. Loners in the mountains.

"Oh..." He looked up at Yuui.

"Me? Tell lies?" Yuui said as innocently as possible. He looked the picture of innocence really. "I would never." But he would. He did. All the time. They had no idea to what degree either.

Jihae, at this point, was incredibly charming without making it look like he was insincere or faking. He was just naturally the kind of person who oozed charisma and charm. Which meant that by the time he was done introducing himself and Drake, the girls were putty in his hands.

They soon had accommodations for the night with the girls staying at the temple and the boys having one of the houses that was recently abandoned when the owners could no longer stand living in such a foul place.

"It would be the only I'd ever had in my mouth," Miyuki said. But she turned away from his sexy whispers. "Don't tease, Snake. It doesn't work when I know you love your girl back at home. Besides, I am claimed by Giratina. You don't need for her to smite you because you offered to taint me."

Yuui only laughed. "Jealous? No. You'd be within your rights, hm?"

"I can't do that trick though," Jiro said. "I can't calm the beast within." That was something that was special to Yuui, a gift he'd been given at birth when he'd been made as a Master.

Jihae was relieved to leave the women in the temple. They would return to their own homes now that the air was fresh. "That went better than I had hoped," he commented. "Our sisters need rest. I do not believe that the women here will have much to spare in the way of food. I will see what I can do."

Miyuki did not take the jerky. She was just looking at Snake. "How do you know that I..." She hadn't told anyone. The only ones that knew were her siblings. It was possible that the ninja and the priest knew as well. But that was it.

"How terribly unfortunate for you," Yuui said cheerfully. Such meaning in those words even if they only ever sounded like teasing. But Yuui knew what he was saying. Kuro would not.

"If they have been living in the temple then I imagine they do," Jihae commented. "If you'd prefer to do the hunting then I would be happy to leave it to you and Jiro. My sister will not be able to give us our next location until her morning prayers. We have time to rest."

"You'll only hurt for it in the end," Miyuki said. "I have not even a year left. A few months if I am lucky. Why would you want to be close to me, knowing that?"

"You can tease me on anything you like," Yuui said, his mask not cracking at all. It never could with this. Kuro could never know. Yuui was too well put together even if he would let things slip time to time.

But the priest turned then to look at Jihae and Drake. "Have we a place to put these ladies so they might rest and recover their strength?" he asked Jihae.

"The women will be staying in the temple tonight," Jihae said with a nod. "We have been given...that house...for the night."

"Oh hunting? What do you want to hunt?" Jiro asked. He was glad they weren't going to eat the bugs they'd killed. That was just gross. He was not for it.

"I have felt love," Miyuki said, tears forming in her eyes. Sadness and anger lingered in her voice. "And he took it from me, twisted it into killing me. I don't want to feel that. Never again." It hurt more than she'd thought anything could.

"No point in giving it to him if he doesn't know how to use it," Jihae said. "Though it wouldn't hurt for you to learn. Can you use any weapons of our time?" He might need to actually train these kids. With Kuro's help.

"I don't need weapons to hunt," Jiro said and changed back into a kitty since the women weren't looking at them anyway. "I can do it on my own!" He had claws and dark magic. He was fine.

"Oh..." Miyuki said. Quiet. She didn't know why Snake cared so much that she be happy in the end. She didn't really even know why he was here other than that she'd rescued him. She didn't understand at all.

Jiro ran off with Drake. He didn't know what the strange thing that Drake was holding was either. But he was curious about it. "What is that?" he asked as they took off. He sniffed around to try to catch the scent of a fiend they could hunt.

Jihae didn't know what to make of that. "I think we might need to start devoting time to training these two," he commented.

"What an excellent idea," Yuui said with a grin.

"Oh shut it, you," Jihae nearly growled. He hated Yuui. He didn't know why. They just didn't get on. Never had, probably never would. Jihae looked back at his sister and Snake. "Come on, you two. We're moving inside now."

Miyuki looked up at her brother then, startled. She'd not noticed he'd returned. She was honestly surprised he was allowing this. Things with her and Jihae were complicated. She'd resented that he'd brought her back. And he regretted that he'd only extended her suffering, unable to truly save her.
