Rays of sunlight shone throughout
Mia's room as her eyes fluttered open. She rolled over on her
back only to see Anubis beside her. She smiled as she remembered
last night how they ended their talk. Only moving to a communication
of a different kind.
She watched him sleep and
the image of Anubis would not leave her. Tousled in the sheets
with a muscular arm flung out casually, his bare chest visible,
it drove her crazy. It was long minutes before she could stumble
into the bathroom. She showered, still trying to free herself
from the hold of the memory.
Mia dressed and padded into the kitchen to cook breakfast. Oddly enough she was grinning like an idiot and couldn't contain it much longer.
Anubis slowly rolled over and
felt no warmth from the woman he had set his heart on waking up
next to, he bolted straight up. Could I have scared her away?
Was pouring his heart his out to her too much. Thousands of questions
swam through his head as he got up from the bed.
Anubis quickly threw on his
garments and rushed downstairs. He saw how happy she was and she
walked over and greeted him with a kiss. He just looked at her
in amazement, and saw what made him fall in love with her.
She was so cute. He had to admit she looked so adorable in a dark green oversized T-shirt with a raised hieroglyphics motif across her breast. Her tights were black showing off her shapely trim legs. She was wearing her hair in a French braid, with wisps carefully lying on her neck. Her cheeks were flushed and she turned slightly and smiled when she saw him.
She acted as though it never
occurred to her that she should be feeling helpless and out of
her depth with all the warriors in her house. Instead of following
everyone's lead she held her own with everyone. She dug up information
on their enemy, held to the jewel of life, and saw to their welfare
no matter how difficult or dirty. She never complained anymore
than him and she was a better nurse than the armor.
Then there was her spirit,
God help them. She was his equal if not superior to his. She challenged
everyone's opinions and held her own, without armor. She was matching
him stride for stride. They suited each other, even the other
said lightly slapping his arm. He was grinning like a Cheshire
cat and she couldn't figure out why he kept spacing out on her.
stuttered out. He took a deep breath, and could still smell the
rain that of which mingled with hers, summer rain and woman; it
was driving him crazy.
"I've call your name three
times before you came around. Is something wrong," she said
oblivious to his reaction to her. She braced her self for the
worst. She hadn't seen that look upon his face since he'd found
that Talpa had been using him.
"No, I was just lost in
thought. Seems the Warriors are up," he said pointed to the
door where Kento, Sage, and Ryo came stumbling through seconds
later. Mia gasped as realized he had extra sensory hearing, the
man just kept surprising her. The boys sleepily rubbed their eyes
as they sat on the stools and laid their heads down the kitchen
"Morning Guys," said
Mia, "What'll you have?" she asked grabbing a large
bowl from the cabinet.
Kento's eyes lit up and he began to name of a number of items. Mia grew wide-eyed at the possibility that he actually wanted her to actually make all of that food.
"Kento, Mia can't cook
that much in time, besides bottomless pit we have to eat too,"
said Sage. Kento grunted and look at the floor in frustration
as everyone giggled at Kento's rumbling stomach.
"Anubis why are you up so early," asked Ryo in between yawns. Anubis looked at Mia, who's back was to everyone then opened his mouth to speak very slowly, " I Uhh couldn't sleep" Ryo peered at Mia and then back at Anubis. Something was going on here that he didn't know about.
Moment's later Kayura came flying
down the stairs dressed in the Ancient's garbs with the rest of
the household trailing her, "Someone is attacking, prepare
yourselves. Mia and Yuli stay here," she cried. Everyone
armored up and dashed out side leaving Mia dazed and confused.
The sky grew dark as ten large
soldiers jumped from a dark portal in the sky. The wind blew slightly
as if it were crying out for help. The creatures from the woods
behind the house scattered in fear. Everyone had an uneasy feeling
that sunk to the pit of their stomachs, and called upon their
armor. The warriors stood they're ground as they readied for battle.
"White Blaze, go protect Mia and Yuli," said Ryo snatching
out his katanas. White Blaze replied with a low growl as Ryo swung
Sekhemt threw a punch the fighter
who ducked and pulled a sword out of his sheath. The fighter struck
at Sekhemt. Sekehemt let his chains fly and grab the fighter;
they squeezed the fighter and the armor crumpled to the ground.
Dais looked over to the fighter as the helmet of the fighter began
to give off a funny light. Well I'll be darned. "Guys these
fighters aren't even human, they are controlled pieces of tin,"
he yelled out.
"Alright lets kick some
butt, but something doesn't seem right. Why would they just come
to fight when they know they're gonna lose," he tried to
finish but was cut off as a fighter attacked him from the side.
White Blaze growled and went
into the house to protect Mia and Yuli who were on their way to
the basement as they had planned so many times before. White
Blaze ears twitched slightly as he heard a movement upstairs.
Motioning them into the basement he pranced up upstairs and opened
the door only to be thrust to the ground.
Mia turned and lifted her head as she heard a loud thud. "Yuli stay here, don't move at all for whatever reason. Got that." He nodded slightly and smiled he knew everything would be all right. The warriors or Mia had never let him down.
Mia slowly crept around the
stairs and made her way to the 3rd floor. She quietly cracked
the door open only to see a lady with her eyesight fixed on something
in the corner. Mia opened the door further to see White Blaze
fall to floor in a large heap. The woman turned her head hearing
the door crack open and had her view set on Mia and snickered
slightly, "I really don't know what he sees in you. But there's
no time for that, come Mia
"Look lady I'm not going anywhere especially with you." Mia said swallowing her fear till it reached the back of her throat. She prayed that they'd come to her rescue and the training that they gave her during the attacks would be of help.
"Well then, we'll have
to do it the hard way. Armor of Temptation
She was engulfed in sheets and flowers of every color. The helmet
of gold hid her emerald locks. Her ankles and arm bracers shone
of a dark mysterious red. Unlike other armors this one took the
shape of a short Kimono almost as a dress, giving off a gold shine.
She grabbed her double-edged staff with a small insignia and shape
of a bird on it. She grabbed the staff and twirled it around showing
her "Mia it's time to come with us."
Mia imprisoned by this amazing
sight broke free of the spell and sprinted downstairs. "Guys
help me," she screamed opening the door and heading outside.
Everyone was so busy fighting the Dynasty soldiers she had trouble
getting their attention. Mia began to panic and quickly ran to
the first one she saw.
"Dais" she said trying
to keep away form the fight.
"Mia look out" Dais
slightly picked her up and moved her out of the way of the blue
light coming from the fighter's sword. Hey someone help! Mia needs
help but I got this fighter on my back.
Kento punch a warrior in the face, hearing Dais telepathically and turned as he noticed Mia running away. Before he could blink she was encircled by a strange light green light. "Mia," he cried thrusting the fighter in the face.
Anubis pivoted away from his
fighter and kicked his legs out from under him. He heard Mia call
his name and ran back to the yard and stopped in his tracks.
"Let her go," he said
feeling the anger build up inside of him. Seeing her fear stricken
wretched at his heart and made him want to kill like never before.
"Orders Anubis...You have
no right," she said taking her helmet off, "leave a
girl and you forget about her. Well let's see how you like me
"Megumi? How could this
be?" he asked puzzled
"Well dear husband I must
say I'm surprised at how you go and cheat. Mia heard this and
didn't know whether to cry or die were she stood. He couldn't
be married to another woman
he was the warrior of loyalty.
Mia looked down only to see that Megumi was lifting her. Megumi
whispered a spell as a portal opened. Megumi shoved Mia into the
portal and turned to the rest of the warriors who had just finished
of her men.
"Well time to die. Immortal
Wings of Devotion Strike," she screamed causing her voice
to echo throughout the valley. Megumi concentrated and moved her
staff around in a circle, then thrusted it out in midair. A large
gust of wind blew as the sky darkened and all the birds scattered.
The wind speed grew and turned into a green flashing light coming
from every direction in which the warriors could not escape.
Kayura struck her staff in to
ground and the chains on the tip began moving slightly as though
they were dancing to the wind. A large blue barrier surrounded
them as the ground began to shake. Megumi jumped into the portal
scowling at the Ancient. The black portal slowly closed up, everyone
watched in horror.
The Ronins look at one another
at disgust and the Warlords had faces full of sorrow. The had
let Mia down, the main source of everything they had. No one could
utter a word. For that moment it seemed the world had grown cold
and barren, that they were the only ones left and all hope was
lost. Non of them had the terror stricken features of Anubis and
who in frustration hit a nearby tree causing it to lean slightly.
A few minutes ago they were all talking and laughing in the kitchen,
now his love was gone
someone had to pay.
"Guys we need to talk," said Kayura breaking the tension in the air.
