"Yes," Jiro said. "Then I will laugh with you. But not right now." He took off back towards the group. It looked like everyone was set and ready to go. Why? Because Jihae was super organized and got everything done except for Snake's stuff, like his tent and all.

"Well, that's good to know," Yuui said. "I had thought that he would be. But then, the gods do know what they're doing." Who knows what he meant by that though. it wasn't so weird for him to say. He was a priest.

Megumi looked at her sister then as Drake returned. "We're ready to depart. Is this where we leave you until we are finished in the capital?"

"That depends on Snake," Miyuki said and looked at him. She didn't know where they'd be going while the others were shopping for weapons.

As that had been all figured out, they rode, leaving the now beautiful and lovely smelling town of Floaroma behind them. The road, while long, was not especially difficult. Chatting happened, just light conversation to keep the journey from becoming terribly boring.

In time, the golden city of the capital came into view. It was massive and quite glorious to look upon. It also had a large wall around it and massive, golden gates. They stopped just as it came into view, knowing this is where the siblings would part.

Megumi and Jihae weren't happy but they understood. At least Snake seemed safe. The siblings dismounted and Megumi and Miyuki hugged.

Miyuki was absolutely fine with hugging Hikari. She would have hugged Drake too but his words were good enough. "Thank you both," she said. She wasn't in the least bit surprised by what Kuro had said.

Yuui started laughing. He too gave Miyuki a hug. "I would say he's just joking but...He really means it," he told Snake. "Bye!" And off he went.

"I know," Miyuki said as she watched them go. "I guess I'm a little lucky." Not much but still some. Soon enough they were gone, closer to the gates where they could hardly be seen. She felt bad to be separated from her family, especially her twin, but she couldn't stomach the idea of facing her father. "What did you have planned now?" she asked.

As it turned out, Miyuki and Snake were not the only ones that had no intention of going into the capital and possibly running into the mad king. As the gates came into clear view, Yuui just stopped with his usual polite smile on his face. "I shall be departing now as well," he said cheerfully. "I have business elsewhere. I'll meet up with you here when you're done."

"Ryuu," Miyuki said in surprise. She had not expected her sister's forbidden love to be lurking in the forest just outside the capital. She went to him and gave him a hug. "I'm happy to see you even if I don't understand what you're doing." He'd been there the whole time but not let Megumi know? Why?

"I don't know what you mean," Yuui said, the picture of innocence. "You can go with them. After all, between you and Eden, how long can it take to pick them out weapons in the market, hm?"

Megumi and Eden both watched to see what Kuro would do. Yuui was hardly ever left alone, though neither of them knew why that was exactly other than priests of Mew were pacifists and he needed the protection.

"He is right in that we shouldn't be long..." Eden said, but he too was suspicious of Yuui. Only Yuui didn't give him a reason to be. Business? Well, the priest often did have business separate of them. If Mew was telling Yuui to do something else for her while they went to the market, Eden couldn't tell him not to. It was a goddess after all.

"I do," Miyuki so without hesitation. She wanted her father to pay for what he'd done to her and her beloved. "I know why Eden plans to strike down our father but...you don't have to involve yourself for me, Ryuu," she added. "Megumi would be so upset if something happened to you..."

Yuui didn't look bothered or even worried about that growl that Kuro gave him as he walked away. He just laughed and waved at Drake and Hikari. "Have fun finding your shinies!" he said and then off he went without a care in the world.

Megumi watched Kuro rather than see Yuui do the silly things he always did. "He'll be all right," she told Kuro, putting a hand on his arm. "He can take care of himself for all his carelessness."

"It'll be a nice break to get away from his constant cheeriness," Eden said. "I don't mind it from you," he added to his sister.

It didn't take long for Miyuki to figure out what that meant. "He denied you?" she asked. Even after all she knew of him, how he was slowly descending into madness with no clear reason why other than whispers of a curse that had followed Jihae's mother from her home kingdom, she was still surprised that he would deny someone who had passed their travel. "He can't do that!" She was immediately angry for Ryuu and Megumi. That wasn't fair to either of them.

If Megumi knew what Hikari was talking about, if the Gods had whispered Yuui's dark secrets to her, she didn't act like it. She just patted Kuro's hand on her own and smiled up at him. "You're right," she said. "We should get more provisions for them."

"Do your history books speak of what happened to him?" Jihae asked. "He hasn't deigned to give us that particular story." But he looked at Drake then. "In this kingdom, perhaps not. But if we are to journey to other kingdoms then there is a possibility that it will be so."

He approached the large, golden gates of the capital and announced his identity. The gates opened immediately for their prince had a very distinctive look, being half foreign, and was not doubted in his proclamation of identity.

"Ohhh, I see how it is," Miyuki said, finally realizing why it was that Snake had attached t her so quickly and easily. He was one of Ryuu's men. It had essentially been an order. "I'm not sure how I feel about this..." He came off as sincere and she liked him but...Still. "Not cool, Snake. Not cool."

Mireya was a little surprised by how the siblings spoke to each other. It was so harsh. She could tell that they meant the words only in joking but it was still surprising for her.

"It seems the two of you make quite the team," Jihae said with a soft smile. He liked the banter between the siblings. He could tell how much love went into the words even if they were rather harsh. "Your parents must be proud of how blessed you two are with knowledge."

"Well in that case we can still be cool," Miyuki decided. "Thank you for looking out for me," she said to them both. "My brother is getting better...He did let me go, after all." Which hadn't been easy on him.

"Oh that's horrible," Megumi said, surprised to hear such a thing.

"What happened to your mother?" Jihae asked, not put off that they were laughing at his assumption. Most people had functioning families. But then, these were Hunters. And their lives were never typical.

"Well there is a time and a place for those," Miyuki said. "This is not the time, I guess." She did want to catch up with Ryuu. She also wanted to know why he'd not revealed himself to Megumi.

"Oh that's terrible," Megumi exclaimed. "You poor things. I can't even imagine how awful that was for the two of you."

"It seems that our situations are not so terribly different," Jihae said. "That's unfortunate. I am sorry."

"Ghost and charming doesn't really go together well," Mandisa commented with a smile. She'd always liked Ryuu. It was like having another big brother. "I guess it just works on special people."

"It's all right," Jihae said.

"I mean, who wouldn't be touchy about something happening to their family?" Megumi added. The siblings understood but she felt bad about Drake just storming off. They weren't far behind him though.

"My mother's kingdom fell to a terrible curse and she fled here. But the curse took when I was a child and it seems to have caused my father to descend into madness as well," Eden said, though he didn't get too specific about it.

Miyuki kept quiet but she looked curiously around at the people and the tents as they walked by them. She knew these weren't gypsies. They had to be Ryuu's men. He was a clever man, that was for sure. She stepped into the large tent after him.

"It's all right," Jihae said to Hikari and put a hand on her shoulder. "Seems like it's not an uncommon story." His sisters might have had a different mother but she still hadn't lasted long once their father descended further into madness.

Miyuki glanced in the direction he'd spoken about and kept quiet. She didn't want to wake up his sister, who had been ill for quite sometime. She knelt on the pillows across from him, looking at the food and drink before them. It all smelled delicious.

"No," Jihae replied. "My father was once a good man. I had thought if there was a way to end this curse and save him, I should. But I do not believe that there is a way. Not one that I could stomach doing," he said. But it was such a sad topic. He didn't like to dwell on it. "Up there, to the right, is the armory portion of the market."
