CGahh!!! I can't hold it anymore!!!  :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:

Since I can't hold it anymore, I'm going to post a teaser for all of you. Guess who's the pairing, okay?

(hint: I've search all over the internet for this pair and I only found one fanfic with this pair. So it's quite unusual!)



Rival Forever? (Teaser)


My chest raised rapidly as I tried to fill my lungs with more oxygen, also caused me to gasp rapidly too. My arms and feet are stretched widely after being used too much for today on the wooden floor, I couldn't get up anymore. My head starts to feel hazy thanks to the pouring blood on the side of my forehead, I tried to keep my pain down by biting into my lips until it bleeds. My shirt and my hair were having a competition on which one was the one that being soaked the most by my sweats and blood. I closed my eyes as I heard the door opened, waiting for my next fate after being pushed too much. The next thing that I felt was something heavy suddenly fell on my stomach and both of my arms are locked to  the cold floor.

Wondering what’s actually happening, I opened my eyes. There, I stared into a pair of beady brown eyes. I knew the owner must’ve cried before since the traces of tears and it’s red face are still in my views. The owner’s long brown hair has covered my face and her from the surroundings like a curtain, trapping both of us to feel each other’s warm breath.

No one said a word for a moment and I’m still gasping for some air. I smelled the faint scent of strawberry and champagne cologne that she used regularly. Still facing me, she closed her eyes and tears starts to roll out to her cheek. I can felt her teardrops landed on my cheek, but I didn’t flinch it away. She opened her eyes and I still saw the tears forming in her eyes, her lips trembles hard. I’ve only seen her like that once, and it was a long time ago. Not long before we met each other for the first time. She opened her mouth as if trying to say something, but instead she gasped for air too. Trying to get herself calmed down. I waited for her to calm down, but she seemed to act faster than I expected.

She leaned down and landed her thin lips on mine. I could feel her lips moved against mine softly, not knowing what to do I closed my eyes and enjoy it. Without realizing that my lips starts to follow to move, I was kissing her back..

I felt something wet drops on my face, and realizing that it’s her teardrops again. She was crying as we kissed. Her lips moves against mine again, this time putting more efforts of aggressiveness to it as if trying to express her feelings to me.

I don’t know why, but my eyes started to feel wet and suddenly I can felt a drop of tear rolls to my cheek as she kissed me..
We broke apart and grasping for air. Her face is red and still pretty much crying for me. She opened her mouth again and leaned down so that her forehead touched mine, leaving a little space between my lips and hers.

“Thank you. Thank you for being my rival for all these time..” she whispered softly, slightly choking of her own tears

I smiled and closed my eyes, causing more tears to came out. My heart, painfully twisted. I regretted the times that we could’ve spent together as closer than a friend. I regretted the six years that I spent with her, without doing anything. I regretted the fact that I let her go to date another girl and cried painfully because of it. I regretted our relationship as a rival instead of something else that’s closer. I regretted that I will leave her soon like Yuka did..

“Thank you. Thank you for being my rival too…” I whispered back and cupped her cheek and pushed face up a little so I can bring my face closer to her, putting the distance of zero between our lips. Letting her to feel my tears too..






PS: Cometerz48 appolized for her bad English to everyone and hopes everyone understands what she's talking about.. Please do leave some comments or suggestions, critics are welcome too :D

Hello there! I'm so happy that everyone praised my teaser..*played a happy dramatic song*

Now then, I shall post the first chapter. I hope you figure out the main pair then!  XD


Rival Forever?
-Chaper 1-


The dark alley seemed to be endless as I ran through it. I’ve running for a few minutes and I can feel my breath is getting shallow from time to time. I wish I could stop to take a breath but I can’t…

Can’t stop now…

Chasing after me, members of the local gangster that I used to serve once. I’ve got no choice, they found me lying on the street with a pinch of life in me when I was little. They took me in, they took care of me until a few minutes ago..

Why am I running away from them? The gang got some dirty business in their pockets. Human trafficking, smuggling drugs, illegal betting organizer, and many more businesses that can receive big sentences if caught by the authorities. And I’ve had enough..

Although they taught me a lot of things, respect, loyalties, strategies.. But one other thing that they taught me from the first time I recovered was assassination. They trained me to kill with various ways; poisons, guns, sniper, knives, ropes, and martial arts. I wasn’t the only one to be taught about that, there are others too. 

So no wonder some of the guys behind chasing me were assassins..

As I ran I kept on thinking how am I going to stop them for leaving me. The thing is that I couldn’t. The principle of the gang was simple, betrayals are not acceptable.

This means that they won’t stop until they killed me..

The view in front of me made my footsteps stopped, I stared high into the fence in front of me. Five meters high should be easy for me to climb.

I hopped on the fence and start climbing. Before I could reach  my last grip, something wrap around my leg pulled it down with force, causing me to let go and landed on the ground faced first on the shallow puddle caused by the rain. I choked on the water and get up. I can felt that one of my ribs got a crack or might even broken. I looked up and saw the gangsters are only a few steps away from me, pointing each of their nasty weapons to me.

“Nice job, Rapper..” said the one with an axe on it’s hand to the hooded figure next to him. The hooded figure only nodded and snapped it’s whip. Causing some water to splattered around.

“I am not going back!” I said as I took my breathe rapidly. “I’ve had enough of these!” I yelled as I threw the plastic packet from my pocket. Inside, pills in various colors and nasty effect waits to be consumed.

One snickered and picked up the packet, “ Pity, you’re one of the best and you decided to quit? Shame on you..” I gritted my teeth as I hold down the pain in my ribs. I tried to stand and ended up gripping the fence for support. I pulled out one of my weapon, a foldable laser sword. I can’t pull out my gun, they’ve ran out of bullets since I shoot them all to get myself out of the gang’s base.

“Ironic.. You’re still going to fight us? One against ten, huh? I think you must’ve hit your head when you fall there!” said one of them again, making the others laugh loudly. I smiled bravely as I gripped harder to my sword.

“Come on, if I’m going to die at least let me have fun..” I said as I gave them my nastiest grin to them. But the truth is that I don’t want to kill any of them, I knew some of them are my mates and possibly my partner there..

“Get her!!”

I hold out my sword and started swinging them towards my opponents as well as dodging their attacks. I sidestepped one of the jab and returned the jab to the jaw. I slashed blindly and without realizing that I’ve slashed a few of them. I looked to my side and suddenly something got into my eyes, making it hurts for me to see. Then without other hesitations, my back was kicked as well as my hurting ribs. Causing me to scream in pain, letting go of my sword and dropped to the ground. I tried to open my eyes, but it hurts badly which I think one of them must’ve threw some dust or sands to my eyes. I sat up still blinded then I was thrown backwards by a kick in the stomach, making me crashed to the fence. I can feel the taste of blood in my mouth, piling to came out. I spewed it out to the side and rubbed my eyes..

I saw them staring at me, a few had the gashes from my sword. All of them had those sinister grin in their face, as if predators about to kill their trapped prey. The axe figure wielded my sword in his hands before pointing the edge to my neck.

“Any last words?” I breathe rapidly, empowered by them. I refuse to say anything and ended up spewing him in the face with the rest of my power I’ve got left. He wiped the spew with his palm and grabbed my chin.

“No? Then goodbye, Summer..” he let go and threw back my sword to his back, execution style. I closed my eyes, waiting for my own sword to pierce my body. I heard gunshots suddenly, and when I opened my eyes Axe was landed with a thump on the ground with a bullet between his eyes. Confused, I looked at the rest of the gang, some of them are already lying on the ground. The rest, I saw them in blurs. I was sure they are fighting. Fighting something fast..

Only a few seconds were needed to be taken down to one-on-one. I saw Rapper, swishing her whip to a cloaked figure. The cloaked figure dodges the attack and pulled out it’s weapon, a silver handheld gun. Shooting Rapper in the leg, making the figure crouch in pain before she went quite. The cloaked figure stared at Rapper before turning it’s eyes to me. I breathe shallowly, I don’t know who the hell is it. If she’s going to kill me, I can’t do anything. I’m too weak and wounded to fight…

The cloaked figure approached me as and lifted my chin, as if I’m a goods. I looked at it’s brown irises, framed by brown wavy hair. She stared into my eyes as if she’s expecting something to happen, but nothing happens..

“Who.. are.. you..?” I croaked, causing my chest to hurt suddenly. She noticed it and placed her palm on my chest, restraining me to talk further.

“Greetings, I’m Umeda Ayaka..” she said in a soft melodically voice. Suddenly, a force struck my chest. Causing my eyes to close down it’s lids.

I blacked out..



PS: Once again, Cometerz48 apologized for her bad english and hpes that everyone gets her story...

Oioh shait Umechan!!! Yeah, as kurosawa87 said, it's rare to have umechan in fic. On top of that, as one of main characters.

But still, the pairing? Maaan, I really have no idea. If it's DiVA we're talking about then it should be Sayaka, but it seems more like Yuuko (based on the story so far).

Thanks for the update! Can't wait for the next chapter :3

Rival Forever? - Chapter 2



Come here you brat!

No!

I turned and ran into the darkness. I ran as fast as I can without looking back, then I crashed into something. I was knocked back and fell to the ground. When I look up, it's there..

Running away?

I trembled in fear, murderous aura was too much for me to handle. It raises it's weapon to me, ready to slash. Defenseless, I screamed..


My eyes cast open and sunshine blinded me. I narrowed my eyes and sat up. I flinched as a sharp pain from my rib cage, I looked and found it bandaged neatly. I couldn't really remember what happened clearly, I can only remember dying and the cloaked figure..

I tried to see my surroundings. White painted wall, an LCD TV hanging on the wall, and here I am lying on a white linen bed with VI attached to my wrist.

"Carefull, your ribs are still fragile there.."

I turned and saw a middle age woman stood by the curtain on my side. She wore white doctor robe and a pair of glasses that framed her eyes. She approached and sat down on the chair beside the bed.

"How long I was out?" I asked the woman. She smiled concernedly.

"Three days. You broke two ribs and parts of your lungs was damaged. Don't worry, I've fix the lungs but the ribs still needed time to mend." She said as she gave me a glass of water. I took the glass and sips from it, relieving my thirst. I set down the glass and looked at the window. I can't really see the view but I guess I'm still somewhere in the city.

"Where am I?" I asked to the woman. "Who are you?" The woman sighed before giving me an unusual smile.

"I'm Ohori Megumi, but you can call me Meetan. Doctor Meetan." She said with an unusual tone.

I raised my eyebrows, wondering what's with the unusual tone. Doctor Meetan shifted her seat, leaning forward against me. Her hands traveled from my legs that snuggled nicely under the blanket to my waist. I stared to the hungry lips forming in her face. I gulped, not knowing what to do.

"Erm.. Doctor, I don't think..." My voice was cut off by the doctor's finger on my lips. Silencing me in a seductive way.

"Hush..." She whispered again with the tone. She licked her lips, and edging closer. I couldn't fight her, my ribs are still damaged. Straining me from moving to much..

I closed my eyes and waited..

"OI! PERVERT!!" I heard two voices yelled as one unison. I opened my eyes and found Meetan's head being Karate chopped by two hands.

The doctor crumpled on my lap and soothing her head as she growled in pain. I turned and saw two figure, one crossing her hands across her chest while another one resting her hands on her hips. Both of them glared at the doctor.

"Meetan, you're seriously a pervert!" Pouted the one with hands on her hips. She looked quite young, around 11 or 12. Her feature looked different than other girls I've seen so far in my life, round pale face, brown hair tied into a ponytail, and a pair of kind wide eyes. I realized that she must have been born from two races, her feature really looked like those porcelain dolls that were displayed in the antique shop windows across the city.

"Mou, Chiyuu hates you now!" said the other girl with a girly tone. This one has a really cute feature, and neatly manicured fingers attached to her hands that crosses her chest. Somehow you can completely tell how girly this one is. Doctor Meetan sat back to her chair and turned to the two girls as she smiled shyly to them.

"I was just giving her a warm welcome, girls.." she said. But the two girls still pouted her lips and glared at her.

"Okay..." I cut off the silence, "So.. Where exactly am I?" I asked to them. The two girls were about to open their mouth but closed it again as I saw the doctor glared at them. I could tell they're hiding something from me..

Doctor Meetan turned back to me, "Don't worry, you're in a safe place now. We'll tell you where you are once you're better, I swear." said the woman. I thought about it for a moment before decided to trust her. The doctor seemed to be reading my mind because she stood up happily with a great lady-ish smile.

"Great! Now let me introduced you to my assistants," she went behind the one with ponytail and rested her palms on the girl's shoulder. "This is Maachan.."

"I'm Manami Oku, nice to meet you." said Maachan smiling at me her childish smile. Well, she's a child after all..

"And this is Chiyuu.." continued Meetan as she hugged the second girl. I'd feel uncomfortable if I were hugged like that, but it seems the young girl doesn't really mind.

"I'm Kasai Tomomi, nice to meet you, Chiyuu.." said Chiyuu waving her hands at me cheerfully. The doctor took the chance to kiss the girl's cheek, making the girl flinched.

"Meetan, I'm still hating you. You know.." said Chiyuu creepily with her girly voice.

"Come on Chiyuu.. I'm sorry.." pouted Meetan childishly at the younger girl. I watched the view awkwardly before Maachan whispered to my ear.

"Just ignore them, they'll get along later on.." I nodded and stare at the window while Maachan tried to rescue Chiyuu from the doctor's dominance.

...

No one's POV

Three pairs of eye watches the monitor in front of them eagerly, although then one of them gave a palm face after seeing the view displayed in the monitor.

"Meetan.. Seriously.." said the figure that gave a palm face. She had a quite strong built body for a woman, not only that her eyes looked sharp and ready to pierce anyone with it. If she didn't palm face heself, she could've been much more cooler.

Another, had a ribbon on it's ponytail. Clearly stating that the figure was a female. She had short figure but seemed to be as fierce as the first woman, with her also sharp eyes and a determined face. She looked at the screen awkwardly before looking at the first woman, also in an awkward way.

"You have a unique team there, Sayaka.." stated the ribbon figure awkwardly. The one mentioned it's name stopped her action and leaned on her seat.

"I guess so.." she said. She turned her eyes to the third figure, sitting behind his mahogany desk, also staring at the window as he opened a small file case on his lap. Examining it carefully with his framed eyes, chuckling for a second before closing it.

"Interesting.." he said. Sayaka groaned.

"I hope you're not talking about Meetan.." said Sayaka to the guy. Hearing it, the guy only chuckled.

"No. I'm not talking about Ms. Ohori's interest, don't worry about it.." said the guy again still smiling at the screen.

"Thank God.." said Sayaka. The ribbon girl only laugh at the conversation, earning her a creepy stare from Sayaka.

"Sorry.." grinned the ribbon girl apologetically. Sayaka sighed and turned back to the guy.

"So, she'll be in my team then?" asked Sayaka eagerly to the guy. The guy nodded.

"Yes, she will join you as soon she's healed completely. I expect her to be placed in the striker team, I think you have read her file.." said the guy, Sayaka nodded. She has indeed read the file and quite impressed with the facts inside it.

"I expec hert to be working in your team well later on, Ms. Akimoto.." said the guy.

"But for now, let Matsubara Natsumi recovers.."




PS: Cometerz48 apologized (again) for her bad english. And she will confess that this is actually a project that she created in honor of Matsubara Natsumi whom announce her graduations not long ago. Cometerz48 hopes everyone will understand her story.. :)

Rival Forever? - Chapter 3

No one's POV

10 years ago

"Get away from me!" yelled the girl as she turned away and ran with my mind which was consumed by fear. Fear itself started to appear when she witnessed the downfall of her family. Her father, mother, sister, grands... All lying on the floor lifeless as the mansion where she used to live burns down.

What is she running away from? Fear?

Fear was one. The other answer was of course the killer of the family that's impatient to complete the whole family massacre.

She kept on running with her bare feet, dashing the mansion's burning corridors and plunged her self to the front door. Throwing herself into the concrete stairs before landing on the pavement. She yelped as the pain bites into her tailbone and released a sharp gasp as she felt an unidentified hand on her neck, chocking her. She struggled, her small hands tried to push the chocking hand away. But it seems useless, she was weak and her nerves were starting to get numb as the killer brings the little girl's ears close to it's mouth.

"It would be lovely to finish the whole series. But unfortunately I can't.."

"But my boss has another plan for you.. And you will suffer to death."

The little girl squirms again before feeling a sharp pain pierced her neck. She screamed in pain as if her body was on fire and trembled fiercely as if her body was plunged into an icy lake. She trashed her head and struggled before she slumped unconsciously, wishing that everything that just happened was only a bad dream..

 



Matsubara Natsumi's POV

It's been days since I found my self nearly seduced by the doctor, Maachan and Chiyuu took care of me really well instead of the doctor herself. When I asked where she was, the two girls only told me that she has another business to do, and when I started questioning them about where the hell I am the two of them only told me that it wasn't the right time yet.

I was getting bored of my room, until one day I sneaked out when the two wasn't around. The corridor was dark and cold, I regretted my decision for not wearing the robe in the room's closet and only wearing pajamas. I heard footsteps coming down the hallway and sneaked behind my door just in time to hear another door nearby opened.

"Meetan, can I come in?" asked a voice. The voice was kind of heavy, like someone after having a huge exercise. Of course as an assassin, I was trained recognize various voices from a squeaky mouse to a heavy drunk mafia. Once I heard the door closed, I got out again and sneaked beside the closed door. The glimpse of light under the door indicates  that someone's in there. I know it seemed rude to hear other people's conversations but I really need to know where exactly am I..

"Ah, you came in the right time, Yuka.." I heard the doctor's voice, she sounded unusually relieved.

"So, I heard Ume recruited someone for our team.." said the heavy voice with the sound of creaky chair being sat on.

"More like saving actually. She said that the girl was nearly dead.." answered Meetan. My mind kicks in instantly, they were talking about me?

"How is she?" asked the heavy voice huskily, sounded curious.

"Fixed her lungs, her ribs are still mending though." said the doctor.

"Oh.. I heard that she's a top assassin."

"Yes, I read her file. She killed a few mafia boss skillfully. Clean, not leaving any traces of evidence behind." commented the doctor. I couldn't help my self not to sneer after hearing it. Apparently, my reputation is quite well known now..

"Now about your request.." continued the doctor, sounded serious than she was before.

"Is it possible? Please tell me it is.." said the heavy voice excitedly. But somehow I can heard a tinge of worry in her tone.

"It might work Yuka. I can't promise you, but if this works it'll be hard.." said the doctor seriously, I can feel some seriousness in the air like when mafia boss talks about dangerous business.

"and painful.." added the doctor again with a special tone for the "painful" bit. I narrowed my eyes, trying to think what exactly are they planning as silence filled the scene for a few moments.

"Meetan, she's our friend.. We can't possibly let her be like that forever." said the heavy voice sounded disturbed.

"Yuka, what if she wants to? Have you ever thought about that?" asked the doctor. The one called Yuka seemed to be knocked back at the question that I started hearing tiny sobs.

"Hiks.. Meetan.. She's suffering.. I know she is.. She seemed strong, but she really is fragile.. She could break any moment." said Yuka chocking with tears. She sounded sad and frustrated as if everything was her fault. Then I heard a faint tapping as if the doctor patting on the sobbing girl's shoulder.

"Listen, it's not your fault.. Let's try our best to do it. You'll do yours and I'll do mine. You've told Kana yet about the plan?" asked the doctor.

"She said she'll help.." said Yuka shortly.

I took a step back quietly, trying to absorb what I've just heard. Trying to figure out what are they talking about, their plan, and most importantly, where am I. But before I turn around, I felt something cold at the back of my head. Like something pointing at my head, possibly a gun. I froze, cursing in my mind about how could I not notice was behind my back all the time.

"Glad that your ribs seemed to be much better for to take a walk in the middle of the night.." said a woman voice. Sounded grim and haunted as if she was about to execute someone with that gun of hers. I cursed under my breath, but then I felt the gun pressed into my head.

"Now, if you're willing to come with me, I'll consider if you're an enemy or an ally." said the woman again. She slid the gun up, signalling me to get up. I had no choice but to follow, I couldn't fight back in that position. More importantly, not in this condition.

"Now move forward and keep your hands up. I know your ribs allows you to do that already." said the voice again. I obeyed and started walking in the darkness.

"Who are you?" I asked huskily. Trying to sound confident despite my life could end with a single shot from that gun. The voice only chuckled as we move.

"Well, you might join the team anyway. So I guess I'll have to introduce myself early..." said the voice sneakily.

"I'm Oshima Yuko. Nice to meet you, Matsubara Natsumi-san."

"Now move it." said the voice again.




Heyy, sorry for the delay.. Just trying to finish last bit of school before posting this thing, hope you like it.

Sorry for the bad English..

Rival? Yuka? XD

I'm sure this pair must be from team K, so.... maybe TomoYuu? Because SaeYaka can't be rival XD

Actually Sayaka said the Sae and Yuko were her Rivals so...Technically SaeYaka are Rivals

Hellooo everyone!!
I actually had a chemistry test today..
But I really can't study because yesterday was our heroine, Nattsumii's graduation....  :cry: :cry: :cry:
So here it is, the continuation of the story. Enjoy!


Chapter 4

Matsubara Natsumi's POV

"Stop there. We're here." said Yuko. I stopped and extended my hands into the darkness, trying to indicate my position. I touched something hard, like a glass door. I can feel that the gun no longer pointed at me and a little sound of fiddling followed as if the owner put her gun back.

"Mind telling me exactly where I am? Euh, Oshima?" I asked. Oshima Yuko chuckled again, a different chuckle than i was before. More joyful and happy like a kid playing on the playground.

"We'll tell you soon. But now, I have to warn you.." before I could ask about it, I felt a swept of wind at the side of my neck and then a tinge of sharp points at my neck. I cursed under my breath again, for not avoiding it. I knew that Oshima Yuko is pointing something sharp to my neck as if about to kill.

"Now listen.." she said carefully still pointing whatever she's holding to my neck, " The conversation you've heard, you better keep your mouth shut about it. If I heard you talking about it, I assure you my knifes are impatient as I am right now." she said dangerously. I nodded and winched a little for accidentally letting the sharp thing grazed my neck a little.

"Good. Now, just walk straight ahead." said Yuko again.

"Duh, there's a door in front." I said sarcastically.

"I know that. Now move it before I kick your butt!" said Yuko sounded impatient. I closed my eyes even know my surroundings was dark, and started walking. I walked in small steps, expecting my nose to hit the glass and gotten flat. But my expectation seemed to be wrong since I can't feel anything pressing my nose as I walk forward.

"Welcome, Matsubara Natsumi." said a new voice. A deep man's voice, sounded like bluff man to me. I opened my eyes before pinching it, the lights were to much to take after been in the darkness. It's as if someone put the light spot on me as if a star on a stage play.

I finally opened my eyes to take the view. The room huge, like a warehouse or some sort of it to store big crates of dangerous weapons back in my ex-gangster headquarter. The lights were hanged by the wooden ceiling high up, the floors are also made out of wood. I recognized that the floor were lined up for a game field, a basketball field or volley I suppose. Series of shooting targets were lined along the wall and also wooden benches. In front of me were series of girls and woman, I was shocked to see Maachan and Chiyuu were among them in their usual clothes. While the others? Kind of range, from army suits to jump suits like mechanics wear. All of them had the same facial expression on their face, not pleased?

"So everyone, please welcome our new member." said another voice, a woman that step forward. She looked like personal trainers that hangs out at fitness center. Her eyes were sharp and piercing as eagles. She stood next to a middle aged man, around 30 years old and also bluff as male trainers.

"You're serious Sayaka? She looked pretty much like a stick to me." said one girl with a mocking tone as she gave an unbelievable glance at the one she asked, the female trainer. The girl wore a stained jumpsuit over a green shirt, I can vaguely read the embroidered name tag on it. But I'm sure it says something that starts with "Ko'".

"Yes I am Kana." answered the one that were asked. She took a step towards me then, "Welcome to AKB S.Q.U.A.D , Matsubara-san." she said before she stopped in front of me. "Ah, by the way.. Thanks Yuko for bringing her here." she added while she peeked behind. For the first time I have the nerve to look back, to see the Oshima Yuko that threatened me a few moments ago. I couldn't help not to smile after seeing her.

She was short, alright. Her height was only about as high as my shoulder, dressed in camo pants and an olive colored tank top. Her long hair was pulled back into a ponytail, framing her delicate face.

Yuko doesn't seemed to be pleased when she saw me smiling. However, she seemed to keep her temper down and clenched her fist instead of the hilt of her sheathed dagger that hanged on her belt. Not only that, a black hand held gun also stand by there and I was 100% sure that gun was the same gun that were pointed to my head. Before she left, she eyed me dangerously as if saying, "watch out". I wasn't sure to be scared or not though after seeing the real form of Oshima Yuko.

I turned back to Sayaka, who stood there in front of me. I wasn't sure about what she was thinking, her facial expression didn't gave me a clue or some sort to break the mystery. "So..." I began carefully.

"Where and what exactly is AKB Squad?" The answer didn't came out of her, instead it came out from the man behind her. I noticed that the guy wore an eye patch on his right shoulder, leaving the left eye to pierced at me. His muscle shirt clearly showed how much he worked out, I mean seriously he looked like a hench man that mafia bosses hires as bodyguards.

"AKB S.Q.U.A.D is a top secret task force, created by the government to many purposes. Mostly for dangerous missions and highly top secret investigations." he said. "And you are in it." he eyed me seriously with that sharp eye, sending slight goosebumps to the back of my nape.

"Why would you recruit someone like me?" I asked. "An assassin that only works for money?"

"AKB S.Q.U.A.D recruits anyone from different fields." said Sayaka. "Assassins, hackers, engineers, scientist. All required take parts in operations we have."

"Like you are." I said, but I wasn't talking to Sayaka. "You served the army didn't you?" I asked the guy behind Sayaka, the eye patched guy. "I can see the chain mark on your neck, where your army necklaces hanged. And the scar on your shoulder.." I eyed the guy. "A bullet got you there." The guy smiled, this time he looked pleased after hearing my words.     

"You are correct, Matsubara. I used to serve the army back then before I was transferred to this place." he said with a pleasing tone. "I'm Tomonobu Togasaki. The director of AKB S.Q.U.A.D, and this is.." he tapped Sayaka's shoulder.

"Akimoto Sayaka, captain of Team K." she said briefly, still eying me dangerously.

"Right.." said Togasaki. "And you, Matsubara Natsumi. You are assigned to Team K under the captaincy of Akimoto." he continued.

"But wait!" I protested, everyone immediately stared at me. But I don't care. "I haven't agree to join this! All I remembered is that I was saved by someone and suddenly after getting myself nearly seduced by a doctor, I'm in?!" Okay, I may looked stupid. But this is too insane for my brain to absorb. I don't know what expressions I had on my face but Togasaki seemed to enjoy it.     

"Basically it's your choice, Matsubara. In the data base you are a top high class assassin, killed at least a dozen of mafia bosses, not mentioning helping to massacre of their family, drug user.." my face blushed as he mentioned my criminal records, "and pretty much if the police catches you, you will have to spend the rest of your life behind the bars." he continued.

"The government decided to forgive you but you will have to serve the country. Join us or you get to spend your time behind the high classified jail for top criminals for the rest of your life." he said. I gulped, thinking what would happened. Thinking about the consequence of the choices...

"I'm in." I said carefully. Togasaki smiled before letting me to face his back.

"Good. Team K, please treat her well." he said to everyone before leaving the warehouse. After he left, all members looked at me dangerously. Sayaka looked at me as if I'm a new toy to play instead of her new member. I wasn't sure what to do until she lunged at me.

I side stepped and noticed that everyone else has backed up, leaving a wide space for me and the captain.

"Top class eh?" said Sayaka, I can feel the auras around her was flickering black. "Let's see what you got!"

She ran and did a turning kick, aiming for my head. I manage to dodged it and grabbed her leg. I slammed her to the floor by the leg, but she managed to roll forward on the floor safely. Her hair was getting messy and the grin on her face wasn't kidding when she lunged at me again, this time I was ready. She raised her fist towards me face in the same time as I am, she was about to punch my face but I stopped it by catching her fist and she did the same thing when I was about to land my fist on her face. We grinned like crazy to each other, she was panting but she seemed to be pleased. I let go off her fist and she did the same, leaving both of us alone.

"I can see why you're in the striker team, now." she said. "Everyone else, get back to your stations!" she yelled to the girls. The girls looked disappointed, probably because they didn't get to see me beaten up. They walked to the exit door which Togasaki used to exit the room a few moments ago, leaving me and the captain.

"You have good reflexes, Matsubara." she complimented.

"You too, captain. Complete control of your power, rarely seen from someone who has a built body these days.." I said to her, causing the woman to smile.

"Take care of her okay?" she yelled before leaving me in the middle of the warehouse. I was about to ask who is she talking to before hearing hearing the response.

"Sure will, Sayaka.."

I glanced at the source of the voice and found three figure standing by the wall. Oshima Yuko was one, her short figure was accompanied by another bluffier figure than Sayaka. She wore a cap that covered the side of her face. Her voice was heavy, heavier than the one I heard talking to the doctor.

"The name is Noro." she said. "Noro Kayo." she said as the three approached me. The smile on her face was triumph full as if she just won a wrestling match in the WWI. The other figure was as short as Yuko but her skin was pale, paler tan the other two. Her hair was long and wavy brown, and her eyes.. Beady and brown irises.

My eyes widened as memories struck my brain, I remembered now..

She smiled as if she can read my mind, she stared at me with those eyes steadily. The air turned sharp as if she froze the oxygen into ice with her aura.

"Yes, we meet again. I'm Umeda Ayaka. Pleased to meet you and welcome to the striker team, Matsubara-san.." she said dangerously.



Sorry for the bad English and the suck composition of the story guys. :(

Nattsumii's graduation really effected my brain..

No, dear. It was very nice and.... you know, you use the old team K that I love the most. I almost cried of joy just from that, haha.

*pats pats* and you should study. I know it's hard (Yuka's leave was close to my final exam week of the semester) but you have to get through it.

Chapter 5

"You.. You're the one I saw that night.." I stammered while my finger points at Umeda Ayaka. The girl smiled, her thin lips spread across her face. She seemed to be rather enjoying my surprised expression. "Although I didn't expect you to be this short." I added. A pulse bulged out on the edge of her forehead, definitely offended. Her expression changed into annoyed.

"Sigh.. Well, you're the famous assassin eh?" she asked, still looking annoyed. "Famously beaten to death by your own gang.." she added with a smirk, causing a scowl on my face. We both looked at each other fiercely. If eyes could kill, we both probably be dead by now.

"Okay.. Okay.." said Noro as she stepped between both of us and spread her palms on our faces. "No fighting yet, you two." she said to both of us before facing me completely.

"You need to heal that ribs first, miss." she said and poked my bandaged ribs, making me flinched in pain. "While you.." she faced my opponent and crossed her arms across her chest. "You need to see Yuka and Natsuki."

My mind recognized the name just then but before I could say about it, Yuko stared at me dangerously. Her warning seemed to be serious because she immediately sent a murderous look to me, so I decided to keep my mouth shut. Luckily, Umeda Ayaka doesn't see it.

"Sigh.. Fine." she said still looking annoyed. But somehow I can sense a little change of tone than it was before, happier I suppose? Noro seemed to be pleased and led me out from the warehouse followed by the remaining two.

"So.." I began as we walk down the hallway. "Striker team?" I asked Noro who put her hand on my shoulder, leading me carefully. The woman just smiled as if remembering old times.

"Striker team is basically the front line team.." she said. "Each member of AKB S.Q.U.A.D are split into big Teams, like a family."

"And basically there are two teams now in this task force. Team A and Team K." added Yuko from behind. I raised my eyebrow a little, wondering how many members are there in this place. I counted roughly around 15 girls just then in the warehouse, included these three and Sayaka.

"Team A?" I asked. "Are they like super team or something?"

"Neh.." answered Noro. "They're a team like us. They're our senior but we treat each other normally, so there's no bullying." she said. "Now where was I?"

"Striker team." reminded Umeda Ayaka from behind too.

"Right... Now striker team is like the ultimate action team. Basically everyone gets to the missions with actions but striker team, we're like the lead team when it comes to actions. Formed by members with special combat abilities and traits." explained Noro as we turned right. Beside us, a row of glass window showed a big room. Bigger than the warehouse we've just left, I can see why. They've got vehicles and big machines there..

"This is where the mechanics work." said Yuko as we passed. I saw someone wields a big chunk of metal, sending sparks into the air. When she took off her wielding mask, I saw the same girl that gave a remark about how skinny I am. She looked exhausted but seemed happy as she drank from a cup while she stared at a huge chalkboard not far from her. I may not have an eagle eye, but I can definitely see complicated mathematics formulas there.

"That's Kana. Kobayashi Kana." said a new voice from behind. I recognized it immediately and when I turned, a shoulder hair length girl stood behind Umeda Ayaka. She wore an unusual black robe over her dress, carrying piles of books in her hands. Vaguely, I saw the book covers. Dark colored and definitely will give you a big lump on the head if you got hit by one of them, hard cover.

"You.." I whispered but then I shut my mouth again when Yuko flashed another warning look to me. The girl seemed to heard my word as she eagerly came closer.

"Me?' she asked.

"You.. Ah, I showed her your picture." said Yuko quickly, covering my mistake. "You have a big.."

"Yuko!!" yelled the other two members of striker team. They each shot her a dangerous look but the most dangerous one comes from the other shortie, I wonder why.

"Hehehehe.. Gomen ne~" said Yuko sheepishly. The robe girl just shook her head as she smiled. Her smile was one of the beautiful smiles I've ever seen, happy and energetic.

"That's okay, guys.." she assured the two who just yelled. "Ah, I haven't properly introduced my self to you. I'm Yuka, Masuda Yuka."

"Right... Matsubara Natsumi, desu" I said carefully this time while I avoided Yuko's look.

"Need help Yuka?" asked Umeda Ayaka to the girl.

"Sure, Umechan." said Yuka as she happily handed the pile of books. I was expecting the short girl's exasperating look after receiving it, but she seemed to be fine which kind of disappoint me.

"Now, Umechan and all of you follow me! Natsuki and I need help in our room.." said Yuka as she walked straight ahead passing us. I glanced back as I walk and saw a walking book pile behind.

"Umechan?" I teased the figure behind me, Noro and Yuko seemed to be agree with my action because they started giggling.

"Shut up." said the walking pile of book, sounded irritated. I couldn't help to join the giggles as we walk through the narrow hallway. Finally we stopped at one big wooden door, it was big and solid kind of the ones for museum entrance.

"Matsubara-san.." said Yuka as she turned to me.

"Erm, just call me Natsumi. That goes to all of you too.." I said shyly to the people around me.

Wait, why am I being shy for?

"Okay.. Natsumi.." said Yuka again. "Do you believe in supernaturals?"

"Huh?" It sounded kind of weird in my ears, well I'm not common with weird magical stories and such. But because of the serious tension in the air, I guess I'll give a shot.

"Depends.." I answered, I looked at my companions behind me. They only smiled and gave a "go on" look.

"Then be prepared for the things behind this door.." said Yuka as she pushed the big door. Revealing a huge room, bigger than the ones I saw earlier.

“How big is this entire building seriously?” I asked to anyone that listens. Noro and Yuko seemed to be enjoying my amusement as we walked in.

A huge banner hung on the walls, each with unique writing and pictures on it, ancient star shapes and ancient writing were embroidered in white over the black fabric. A bigger ancient star was constructed on top of the floor in the middle of the room, slightly glowing in white. Stealing my breath away from my chest and replacing it with a different form of gas, almost making me fluttered.

This place.. I can feel an unusual energy in here.. Almost magically ancient..

“What are you..?” I whispered quietly. Another hooded figure appeared in the middle of the star, she seemed to be kneeling there before and stand up just then.  It approached us and opened it’s hood, revealing a young woman’s face. She seemed to be missing a few nights of sleep since the dark circles around her eyes are easily seen, but she managed to smile weakly.

“This is Sato Natsuki. Natsuki, this is…” Yuka tried to introduce but was cut off by Natsuki’s weak voice.

“I know you..” she said as she gave me an exasperate look. “Matsubara Natsumi, I’ve seen you in my visions..”

“Visions?” I asked with my eyes widely open. I look for answers from Yuko and Noro again, but they seemed to look grim.

“She foresees what’s coming..” explained Yuka. “It’s her job in this place. She’s our clairvoyant.”

My eyes widened again in shock, trying to absorb the fact and situations.

“And what are you..?” I asked carefully as I backed out slowly. Yuka looked gloom as if a curtain of gloominess ran in the air.

“Me? I’m an Alchemist..” said Yuka gloomily.

Hey, this the next chapter!  Sorry if it's a bit longer, I just want our heroine to start doing the missions by the next chapter. So pretty much this is a chapter filled with explanations. Enjoy and sorry for the bad English!


Chapter - 6

Flashback

"Al.. Alchemist?" I stammered. Yuka nodded gloomily before helping her Ume putting the books on the bookshelf nearby. I looked at Kayo and Yuko for explanations, but none of them said a word. Making me wonder what kind of world am I living in.

"Hold on.." I spoke in my best "this is insane" tone. Everyone looked at me as if they've heard the same words over and over again.

Yeah of course, I bet everyone in this task force has done it.

"You're joking right? There's no such things as that!" I exclaimed, trying to get my sarcasm out. Yuka looked much more gloomier as she put the last of the books on the shelf before she sigh.

"That's why I asked you, Natsumi. I asked you whether you believe in super naturals or not, so I don't have to see that kind of reaction.." said Yuka before coming closer. I stepped back but then Yuko stepped on my foot, causing me to flinched a little. I glared at her and she glares back, the kind of glare that you get from a midget. I glanced back and found Umeda Ayaka glaring at me from Yuka's back.

Great, I just made two fearsome people mad at me.

"The government realized that there were people with special abilities, including the ones that aren't rational.." said Natsuki. God, I'm glad she saved me by that. "They then planned a secret task force, filled with the ones that were talented normally and not so normally. Including clairvoyants and alchemist."

"What do you do? See how missions turns up?" I asked. Natsuki frowned a little, trying to give the best normal answer I think.

"Well it depends. Clairvoyants only has visions about the future unscheduled, so not everyday I can see it. But once it was shown, it turns out to be 99,99% positively true." answered Natsuki. "Like I saw you, now." she added.

"Me? What did you see about me? We never met before until today." I asked again.

"I saw people's fate sometimes by just looking at their pictures. I saw yours when Sayaka showed me your profiles that afternoon. She consulted to me first to find out if you were to join us or not. And when I saw your picture, I saw you beaten to death by your own gang. Later then that night, you were rescued." said Natsuki. Making me stare at her in awe.

"Okay that's creepy.." I replied, earning my self more glares. But Natsuki just smiled at me casually.

"How about alchemist? What do you do?" I asked Yuka.

"Well.. Technically I'm not only an alchemist.." revealed Yuka, earning another surprised look from me.

"Okay.. Just what are you?"

"I can do lot's of things. Helping the mechanics with my alchemy, looking at futures along with Natsuki, and helping missions  with physics or magic abbilities.." said Yuka, making me gawk at her in awe.

"So basically, you're an awesome person." I simplified.

"I suppose so." said Yuka happily, she looked much more cheerful now after being gloomy for a while there.

"Not many people were born like that." said Natsuki. "She was born for magic after all. That's why the government recruits people like us, so that special talents wouldn't go down the drain.."

I nodded, now I get it why everyone was supportive here. Each has their own weakness but a big valuable talent that each person has, can help the country as well. The feeling of pride to take a part in it, made them supportive to each other so that they can continue it together.

"Then how about you?" I asked Noro Kayo. The big bluff lady laugh before shaking her head.

"Well.. I'm a ninja actually." she said. "Yes, the ones that can do jutsu.."

"What about you?" I asked Yuko but the midget already wrap her arm around my neck and pulled me down.

"I'll explain later, Natsumi. But now let's get you to Meetan.." said Yuko as she dragged me out. "These people need a good conversation.." said Yuko again before winking to Yuka, which then replied by Yuka's "okay" sign.

"Kayo is not coming?" I asked the midget.

"Nah, she has another thing to do in there along with Umechan." said Yuko without worries. Together we walked down the hall way back to my room..


Three days later

Okay, it's been three days since I accepted the unbelievable news. Clairvoyant, an alchemist, magic and all crazy things. Great, just another crazy stuff to take for my brain.

Meetan checked on me a couple times since I last heard her talking to Yuka. The dark rounds around her eyes are about as dark as Natsuki's, poor doctor seems like she haven't got enough sleep. Probably in need of companions to sleep with..

She opened my bandage and pass it to Chiyuu whom then hands in a wet towel. The doctor then carefully rubbed the wet towel to my exposed skin, giving it a sense of relieve. Enough for me to sighed in relieve.

"Seems like your ribs are healed now." pronounced Meetan and gave the towel back to Chiyuu before the little girl left the room. I sat up happily as I put on the new top laid out for me, a green olive shirt and an army jacket.

"Look who's ready for actions now!" exclaimed Yuko as she came in through the door. The midget wore a long sleeve shirt along with camo pants that goes to her knees, combined with combat boots. I can't see any gun in her pocket, but she got her usual blade sheathed there. So rather think not to irritate her today since I'm weaponless.

"Now careful.." said Meetan as I got out of bed. "Just make sure it doesn't break again, okay?" she asked before we both left the room.

"Got that!" said Yuko happily before skipping in the hallway.

"Thanks Doctor!" I said before closing the door and followed where ever that Oshima girl is heading. My mind raced down as I walk, thinking whether I should tell her about my dream.. 


A day before...

"We've got a mission.." said Yuko as she looked over the window of my room. I looked up on her, the sunset's light showered her in dramatic cliche. Her expression was flat and calm, the exact opposite as her fingers that's fiddling her blade. "We'll come to Sayaka's office tomorrow after picking you up."

"Striker team?" I asked, the answer was a quick nod from the Oshima girl. I looked down to my bed sheets, thinking how things will soon work out. I might even have to kill again for this job. "How about my weapons? I haven't seen them since I arrived."

"Don't worry, you'll get a new one tomorrow." said Yuko. I was about to protest to the midget, but she seemed to realize it. "Don't worry. You'll love it, Natsumi. You know how this place is, the people and others.." she added without looking directly at me again. She looked disturbed as if her mind was into something else. She's hiding something and I can tell it. But I decided not to push her further, she looked worried and pushing her will only cause more trouble between us.

"Have you told the other two?" I asked. Yuko nodded, but her face looked worrier than ever.

"Yuko.." I spoke carefully, trying to steal the girl's attention. "Is everything alright?"

"Yeah.. Don't worry it's fine.." said Yuko trying to shook her worries and smiled cheerfully. Damn, she really sucks at lying to me. But I decided not to push further, trying to figure out what's in her head.

"I'll see you tomorrow." said Yuko before closing the door behind her, leaving me to thought about what is going on with her. But without realizing it, I dozed off to the dream land.


Matsubara Natsumi's dream

Where am I?.. I asked myself. The room was dark but I saw a bit of light in front, making my mind wonders as I ran towards it in fast speed. When I reached it, I felt something flat just whack my nose. Throwing me backwards and landed me on my back.

Ouch.. I whined as I rubbed it. But then my eyes widened as I saw a view in front of me where I stand, behind the ancient symbol in the middle of Yuka's room. I looked around and found four recognizable faces around me.
 
"Yuka!! I can't hold it much longer!!" yelled Sato Natsuki. Her palms are widely opened on the ancient star symbol as she crouched. The wet sweating body indicates how much she has endure her strength for this ritual, trying to catch as much breaths as she can to hang on. But one thing for sure, she'll ran out of powers soon.

Behind her a small girl stood with palms on Natsuki's back, she also looked tired. Her pale face was getting paler as the time goes and sweats streamed out, soaking her dress. Her blonde hair was tied back into a pony tail also getting soaked by the sweats, such view would cause anyone to feel pity for her. But so far Oku Manami is still holding on there.

"Oh God, please let this work.." panted Yuka. The girl's robe was thrown out now, it lays not far from where she stands. Her feet was planted firmly on the cold floor, trying to channel her powers into a small symbol that lit on the back of her palm. Her condition was not much different from Natsuki's, weary and tired. Her dress was torn up as if she just fought with some cats, exposing some of her skin to the world. On her cheek was an unusual scratch that's turned into shades of sickly green.

Other than the two super naturals, Noro Kayo seemed to be in the better condition.  She was puffing, but not as weary as the other two. She was holding a few chains in her hands with her feet planted on the ground.

The only lights available in the room were from a few candles around the symbol on the ground and the moonlights that came from a big opened dome on the top of the room. Even with little bit of lights, the room's situation was clear enough. Something is happening.

The chains that Kayo has been holding rattled, warning her to keep holding on as she stared to where it comes from. A big cocoon of chains was positioned in the middle of the circle infront of where Yuka stands. I stood not far from them, just above Yuka's robe lies. Watching with the view with awe, I could catch their words but it seems like none of them recognized me.

Is this a dream?... I asked to my self. But it seems so real...

The sound of rattling chains grew louder, accompanied by a loud growl that popped my ears. I realized that it came from the large cocoon in the middle of the circle, that started to move furiously as if trying to break open. The closest one to the cocoon was Yuka who was still penetrating her power as enchanting some kind of a spell. I tried to yell, but my voice was stuck inside my throat. When I forced it, it hurts badly.

"Yuka!!" yelled Kayo as she pulled the chains tightly in her hands. Fear came across her face, as if she might fear something bad is going to happen. But Yuka stayed on her spot, still concentrating her spell. From there I saw the true call for her job, I can see why she was respected after Sayaka in Team K despite her craziness.

"She was born for magic after all.." Natsuki had said. Alchemy, magic, charms, talisman, and curses, her talent was all around magic. No wonder, she's the treasure of Team K..

I willed my self to enter the protected field. Because if I only moved, I would only hit the force field again. I closed my eyes and when I opened them, all my surroundings are nothing but darkness. I reached out my surroundings and felt the rough surface of woven chains, I nearly screamed when I realized where I am.

I was inside the cocoon.

Even if this was a dream, it's freaking hot in here. Such an extreme heat can quickly heat up a frozen lasagna that you got from super markets, hopefully it doesn't turn me into a roast meat. Not only that, I felt.. I felt angry all the sudden. I felt angry about a lot of things suddenly, from the fact that someone else saved me when I'm beaten up to death by my own fellows to the freaking government that got me stuck in this place. It was weird, all of that were meant to be a good news. But instead I was angry all about it.

I closed my eyes to calm my self down, but it was just hard as I tried to speak just then. Suddenly a gush of hot wind came to my face, making me suffocate due to the heat for a moment. And when I opened my eyes, I found my self staring at a pair of eye. I screamed, but my voice was frozen this time. As if the eyes has made it frozen despite the heat around. The eyes were bloody red for a moment before shifting to another color, dark purple. Then the deeper I look into it, images started to appear by itself. I vaguely saw strange images, a burning mansion, a bloody knife, a family portrait bathed in blood..

Just as the last image shifted, a loud growl was heard again. This time louder and popped my ears fiercely, I covered my ears but then I was thrown backwards all the sudden. Waking me up from my sleep to find my self back in real life in gasping breaths. I was relieved that I could breathe the cool air again, that heat was too real to be categorized as a dream.

"What was that...?" I asked my self to emptiness of my room.

You know, Natsuki being somewhat closest with yuka here makes my N-Tako fangirl side extremely happy. XD

As for the ritual... I have a hunch that it is to produce weapon for Natsumi--a magical weapon XD;?

Thanks for the update! :3

Chapter 7

Flashback

"So..." I began slowly. Yuko tilted her head slightly towards me as we walk down to Sayaka's office, I realized then that despite her small figure, she actually looked really cute to be a high school cheerleader captain especially with that little squirel teeth in her dental line. "You haven't answer my question yet."

"Which question? The one about what I am?" she asked back. I nodded and saw her smiling sheepishly.

"Do you want the dead truth or the modified truth?" she asked. I frowned when I heard it.

"The dead truth of course." I said. "Is there even such thing as modified truth?" I asked again, resulting a light laugh from the midget.

"Well.." she shook her head a little, "I'm actually the same as you, Natsumi. I'm just a normal human with the abilities to kill " she said. I praised the God at once.

Thank God that I'm not the only one with normality in this place..

"You used to be an assassin?" I asked. She tilted her head slightly.

"Kind of. I served the secret intelligence since I was 15 before transferred to this task force. I did lot's of things there, spying, undercover operations, and yeah assassination too." she answered quickly, successfully gaining me by surprise.

"You joined the secret intelligence at 15? You must be pretty smart.." I praised before she smiled sheepishly again.

"I guess so.. Smart enough to blow out my own school with a simple chemistry formula." I flinched suddenly hearing that.

"You blew up your own school?!" I nearly yelled. she laugh again, much joyful this time.

"Nah, I was the first though to make such an impressive academy record at my school. I easily graduated from the Uni in the age of 15 and they recruited me after that." she said. My mouth seriously hung open due to the unbelievable explanations.

"Ah, we're here by the way." she spoke and open the door without knocking on it. I closed my mouth so I wouldn't make a fool out of myself.

"Ah, Yuko there you are!"exclaimed Sayaka. The captain was sitting behind her desk lazily as her hand fiddled with a pen while her other hand was holding a brown folder stamped in red. My guess is that the folder contained our mission information, it looked thick enough to whack someone with.

We came in to the room, it was big but still smaller than Yuka's room and the warehouse. Behind the desk was a big bookshelf, stuffed with folders and thick books while other things like the world globe, the TV plasma,a collection sofas and a big monitor was in the room to just like what a scholar would have. The only thing that probably looked misplace was a throwing target shaped like a human torso standing at the corner with several daggers still sticking on it. My guess was that the target was a victim of the captain's amusement when she got bored.

The door closed by it self and we took our seat on the sofa and Sayaka came and sat on a single sofa in front of us. I noticed that she wore a black tank top under her training pack and a pair of slipper instead of her combat boots. Her face was serious like she was when we first met despite the pink slippers.

"Here's your mission.." she said as she opened the folder and handed out each one of us a smaller folder. Just when I opened mine, the door opened and Masuda Yuka, Noro Kayo and Umeda Ayaka came in to the room.

Yuka looked a bit better than the last time I saw her in my dream but the cheek that was scarred badly was now bandaged up, she wore a new kind of dress this time a white sleeveless dress with some green stripes. As for Kayo, she looked recovered but her hands were bandaged up to the tips of her finger. She flinched in pain slightly when she tried to put her hands into her pocket but she quickly pulled it off by a cool grin. However, Umeda Ayaka was way off those two. She looked paler than her usual pale skin and the dark rounds round her eyes was probably darker than Natsuki's or Meetan's altogether. What's more, she doesn't look much comfortable somehow.

"Ah, there you are! Where have you all been?" said Sayaka happily as the three sat down on the remaining sofa before handing out more folders to them. I stare at them from behind the folder that I was reading. As an assassin, understanding body language was one of the basic skills. Body skills are used to identify situations on assassination. It's required for instance to get information from someone before you end it's life, you have to make sure whether the information are true or not.

Yes, you can pretty much say that I'm sort of a lie detector. Happy?

"Sorry we're late, I guess I had to much fun with Kana.." appologized Yuka. She cheerful and not gloomy like the last time she told me what she is, prooved by her gleaming smile as she opened her folder.

"I just had my daily check up with Meetan." said Umeda Ayaka as she opened the folder without looking at whoever she's talking to.

"I was fixing my weapon scrolls with Sae." said Noro grinning like crazy and pulled out a paper from the folder.


Funny... You know what I found from three of them? Three different alibis and they were all faking it.

How do I know? Didn't I told you that a lie detector?

I looked down at my folder as my mind raced. They all looked lying when they said each of their alibi, and yet Yuka's bandaged cheek disturbed me. I remembered my dream again when I saw a nasty scar on her cheek, is she covering it? And Noro, her hands were bandaged to the tips of her finger. What did she do? Holding to chains like what's in my dream?

No way.. I thought to my self. How could it be..?

Yuko seemed to realized my confusion and pat my back friendly as if trying to calm my mind down before she leaned on the sofa. "So Sayaka, it seems like Striker Team has one extra person for this mission.." grinned Yuko as she flashed her squirrel teeth. I thought she was talking about me for a second, but then I noticed that there really is one extra person in this room.

"You're coming with us?" I asked Yuka surprisingly and saw Yuka nodded her head. My eyes traveled somewhere else somehow, and found Yuka's hand holding tightly to her beloved Umechan. Not only that, the look in her eyes towards the ignorant Umeda Ayaka was unusual. Like more than a caring look from a friend. It looks more like the ones that I saw in romantic movies. My suspicions grew if they were going out with each other, well they looked pretty close after all..

"Why Natsumi? You're jealous?" asked a voice in my head, sounded melodic just like Umeda Ayaka's first encounter with me.

As if. I growled inside my head against the voice. Which worked, the voice was gone after being growled at.

"Yuka will be joining in too because this is one of the "unusual" kind of mission you can say. And I'm sure you knew it already." said Sayaka glanced to me. I nodded in answer, the secrets of this unusual task force did a good job of confusing me though. But I think my brain can accept it better now.

"You'll leave tomorrow morning and will be arriving there on the evening. The infos is in your folder, and Togasaki said good luck to all of you.." said Sayaka quickly. We all nodded before heading out of the room, leaving the captain alone in her office along with her pink slippers.

.......................................................

"Now where are we going?" I asked as we all five walk down the hall way. Yuko pressed the elevator button when we stopped in the front of an elevator and stepped in when it opened, followed by all of us.

"Oh don't worry. You'll love it.." said Yuko with a blink and a cheeky smile. Everyone else seemed happy with the answer and we all stepped out of the elevator and whew..

Now I start to wonder how big seriously is this place.

The whole floor was completely designed like a gigantic store house with wooden ceilings, many tall shelfs filled with wooden cargos, hard cases, and oh dear.. I think I saw someone flying with jet pack on her back across the room..

"Hello everyone!" yelled a voice from the incoming jet pack girl. We watched her land in front of us victoriously thanks to the smokes coming out of the jet pack, not forgetting the fact that she wore a green shirt that says "I AM AWESOME!" across the chest. Her eyes were framed by a pair of goggle that managed to slip into her messy black hair.

Great.. A show off? I thought dramatically as she flashed us the white teeth grin from toothpaste advertisement on TV.

"Can I help you? Ah, Yukoo!!" said the girl before hugging the short midget next to me.

"Hey Sae!" said Yuko returning the hug before pushing her back. "Erm, remember her Sae?" asked Yuko when she jerked her head to me. Sae's face brightened up when she saw me and crossed her hands across her chest.

"Ah, you're the one that went against Sayaka, eh?" said Sae. "I'm Miyazawa Sae from the gadget department. Call me Sae." she introduced her self.

"Matsubara Natsumi. Call me Natsumi." I introduced back to her.

"So Sae.." spoke Yuka. "We're here for our new things, I suppose."

"Ah, that's right!" said Sae. "Ah, there you are!" said Sae looking behind us. I turned and saw two new figure standing by the closing elevator. Sato Natsuki was one, she looked much better rested since I saw her on my dream yesterday. The other person there was strangely Kobayashi Kana with a flat expression on her face, wearing a black jumpsuit over a green tank top.

"Hey Natsuki!" greeted Yuka happily. Natsuki gave her and us a weak reply as they walk closer.

"Kobayashi Kana. Call me Kana." said the flat faced girl to me with a flat tone. I nodded and introduced my self to her just like I did to Sae as well as trying to hold back the feeling to whack her flat face with a flat wooden board on the ceiling. Gosh, I'm still pissed of her mocking from days ago.

"Okay, since everyone is here, we should start sorting stuff!" announced Sae happily. "Natsumi, please follow me and Natsuki.. And for the rest, Kana will show you our new creations." said Sae with a wink to Kana. The flat faced girl grinned suddenly towards the enthusiastic girl and gave the signal to follow her for our team. Once they were gone, Natsuki faced me. Her eyes bored into mine as if trying to dig out something from it. I get the feeling she's doing one of her vision thing to me.

"So what's her weapon, Natsuki?" asked Sae cautiously, throwing away her enthusiastic. Completely, ignoring my confused face.

"Sae.. " said Natsuki carefully. Her face suddenly turned in horror, but she kept it down slightly. "Get me El-Draco.."

I'm not good at Latin I'll tell you, so I wasn't sure what made Sae's face turned surprised in horror just like Natsuki.

"Nats, you sure?" asked Sae with a whisper. Natsuki nodded and Sae soon ran away to the store self and disappeared behind the countless shelf.

"What's going on? What's with that Latin word? You freaked out yourself and Sae a lot you know?" I asked confusedly to Natsuki. The girl looked away as if thinking about something else, she looked disturbed just like what Yuko showed me in my room once.

"When giving weapons, we have to be sure if the weapon was right or not. As you knew, this task force isn't just for normal humans but also the ones aren't. That also goes for the weapons, there are high technology ones and the anciently magic ones." explained Natsuki before settling down on a lying wooden cargo. "One mistakes on handling weapons can led to serious disasters, especially the ancient ones. It can turn on towards it's owner and kill them." The word "kill" somehow managed to make me gulped as my brain felt like malfunctioning again due to the crazy information I got lately

"And that Latin word you said just then?" I asked nervously. "El- Draco?"

"El-Draco means the Dragon. It's..." Natsuki's word was cut off by the arrival of Sae with a black slim case with silver handle. The way Sae carried and settle it down on the table nearby, looked like she's handling a nuclear bomb that can blow any moment, I saw one of the ancient star sign on the case lock. I got the feeling that this weapon isn't a high tech ones that Natsuki said.

Natsuki placed her palm on the sign and closed her eyes.

"Aperio" she whispered, the sign glowed in white before the sound of click appeared. I held my breath when Natsuki opened the case and took out one of the elegant weapons I've ever seen in my life. A silver handled sword with a carving shaped like a dragon on it's guard, while the body of the creature created a scaly silver handle of the sword. When Natsuki unsheathed it, revealing the shinning blade. I never seen such a delicate sword like that before.

"Try it." said Natsuki as she handed the sword to me carefully. I grasped the scaly hilt, and balanced the sword in my hand. It felt warm somehow and oh my gosh.. It's beating like it has a heart beat.

"Like it?"said the melodic voice again in my head, much clearer this time. I nearly let go of the hilt due to my surprise.

"Woah!" yelled Sae as she saw my stumbling hand, while Natsuki's face goes horrified.

"Sorry.." I said to both of them regretfully. I cursed the strange voice in my head for making me surprised, but in the same time I really can't believe what's really happening.

"El-Draco is not a usual sword, I'll tell you that." said Natsuki.

"Yes, I figure that out already.." I replied. "But what is it? It feels like alive.." I unbelievably said it.

"Love your new weapon? It's one of my best creation." said Sae with a weak smile. "And also my scariest.." she added.

"You made this?" I asked to the girl with my best "I don't believe it" face. She looked down to the ground as she fiddled with her jet pack handle.

"Sae is also an alchemist like Yuka. But she's more specialized in weapons like sword and guns." explained Natsuki slowly. "El-Draco was made by Sae's father who was also an alchemist but it was unfinished until.." Natsuki glanced back at Sae with worries as if she's asking something mentally.

"It's okay, Nats.." said Sae weakly as she fiddled again. I swear the girl that looked so happy as she fly with her jet pack just turned extremely gloomy in just a few minutes.

"Okay.." said Natsuki slowly. "It was unfinished until.. Until the whole Miyazawa family got massacred." said Natsuki slowly.

"How..." Before I could finish my sentence Sae butted in.

"El-Draco contained a living soul in it. Dad was sealing it that night, and suddenly all the lights went off.. I heard the broken window and the scream of my mom. She screamed to me and my brothers to run from the house, then my brothers took me to the hut in the forest near our house. They told me to stay and heads back to the house. I screamed and ran with my own feet after their horses, and when I arrived.." Sae yelled with fear as her hands covered her ears. Her voice was different than it was a while ago, she was horrified. Natsuki took Sae's hands and hugged the girl tightly before she burst to tears.

Trauma.. I thought to my self. I stare at the carving of the dragon's eye. That night has got something to do with this sword, no wonder Sae looked so horrified when she heard Natsuki's command to fetched it. It must've been hard.

"Natsumi, look at me." said Sae still Natsuki's hug. "What ever you do, don't ever trust that sword!" yelled Sae crazily before bursting into tears again. Natsuki tried to calmed her down but Sae kept on struggling in tears and...





"They're here.." whispered Umeda Ayaka standing next to me jerking her head towards the party stage. Her brown hair was tied into an elegant ponytail with the starling earrings hanging on her ear. The black dress she wore made her taller and much elegant somehow. 

"Copy that." I replied. As for me, I wore an emerald green one shoulder dress that goes to my ankles. My hair was flowing lazily behind my back but my heart was pounding hard.

Why? Feeling unsecured? Where's my weapon?
 
Kind of feeling unsecured is a yes. My weapons? Ah, I strapped on my leg under my dress.

What? Umechan has her gun in her purse which was easy. But how can I hide my sword? There's no purse that I can use to snuggle that in safely.
 
My eyes followed the figure on the stage. Our surroundings were packed with executives from many companies across the globe, which made us pretty well covered up in this party. But I swore my ankle started to pinch in pain due to Yuka's high heels that I borrowed from her a while ago.

"Ouch.. Can I just took these off? My feet is killing me." I complained to my partner. She glared and jerked her head again towards the stage. I saw the rest of our crew standing there in their undercover with other performers. They gave some waves to the crowd and throwing some kisses before starting their show.

Oh God.. I felt my nose started to throb hard..

"Yeah, they have the natural erotic aura." spoke Umeda Ayaka as if she was reading my mind. Now look at us, we're staring at a show which can make both of us be marked as pervert uncles. I watched the stage again along with other audience in the party room, but an elbow on my ribs made me turned towards the source.

"They're coming close." eyed her. I followed her gaze and found our target straight away, just a few meters from us.

"Who gets him first gets to be treated by the loser." I challenged. The shortie next to me eyed me before replying my grin.

"Sure.. I heard this place has a good caviar.." she said. I grinned and she grinned back. It was okay for a moment until..

BOOM!!!

The ground shook me and the rest of the party. Everyone started to scream and ran towards the exits. We were both crashed by the incoming panicked people, and struggling to keep standing to see the stage. The room was filled with dust and crumbling roof and soon fire broke out from a hole near us. We both eyed each other, and we both know what were thinking.

"Yuka!!"




TBC- Sorry for the long and bad English

Dammit,  so the 'Yuka!' Part is a cliffhanger.... I'm fooled XD

But seriously, I wonder what kind of ritual did Yuka perform with the other girls. They even hid it from Yuuko and Sayaka. :/

Hey, I thought I might do a little side story about our fanfic character here. Enjoy! and sorry for the bad English minna!!


Rival Forever?
A Little Piece of Story: Bloody Summer (Part 1)

"Oka-saaan~" called the small girl in a white summer dress. She ran towards her mother who stood by the a grave stone and hugged her from behind, her hair and the mother's hair was blown by the summer breeze. Her mother glanced at her and hugged the little girl as tears streamed on her face, making the little girl confused.

"Oka-san, what's wrong..?" asked the little girl innocently. She was confused why her mother is crying in this beautiful summer holiday where the sun is shinning brightly and the sky was cloudless. They're meant to spent some happy moments together, just a mother and daughter. But instead, her mother hugged her and cried as they stand by a grave. The little girl didn't know who's grave it is, all she knew was that every year she and her  mother would go here in the summer days and visited this place, which ended up her being hugged again by her teary mother.

"It's okay.." said her mother comfortingly to her little girl. Her eyes weren't teary anymore, just kind of puffy and red, her smile was calming and comforted the little girl's worries. Making her smiling back at her mother with her childish sparkling eyes.

She has the same smile as yours... thought the mother sadly. She wiped her eyes and took the little girl's hand, holding it tight as if she'll never let that little palm go.

"Let's go and get some ice cream from the town shall we?" asked the mother to the little girl. The girl nodded happily towards her as the reply and head down the hill towards the small town just below. While walking down the hill, magnificent views were displayed in their eyes. More green hills, some with wooden huts, farming range, trees bunched up together and created a forest, and of course a small town just down below.

"Oka-san, what flavor of ice cream do you want?"asked the little girl to her mother as they walk down. Her mother smiled weakly to the girl before tilting her head slightly.

"Hmm.. I think vanilla would be great? How about you?" asked the mother back to the little girl. The little girl also tilted her head and gave a pout as she thought about the ice cream she wants.

"Strawberry!!" said the girl excitedly, showing her childish grin to her mother. "But I think I want the sorbet instead.."said the girl suddenly, making her mother turned to her.

"Eeh? What's with the sudden choice?" asked her mother. The kid shrugged easily as she look up the sky above.

"Suddenly I want to eat sorbet, Mama.." said the girl. "That red strawberry one that uncle ice cream made!"

The mother looked astonished for a second then smiled again weakly to her child. This time she looked much more sad than before, she hold the hand more tightly this time. Her mind was flying somewhere else, thinking what fate would this child have later on after today's daylight has passed.

Because there's a chance that this is the last summer holiday for both of them.

They've arrived at the town's entrance, it was crowded since the town's market was located near the entrance, making it easier for merchants to distribute goods to the market. They passed many shops and stalls until finally they stopped at a small ice cream parlor. The little girl opened the door, making the door bell rang. The man behind the counter smiled over his news paper and stood up.

"Look who's here?!" asked the man excitedly as the mother and daughter approached him. "It's our young lady and her mother! What would you like, my darling?" asked the man as he looked down to the little girl and smiled at her. Which then was replied by a smile from the girl her self and a short nod from the mother.

"Ojii-saan, I want Strawberry Sorbet!" said the little girl happily and hovered the ice cream counter.

"Hee? You usually want the pink strawberry ice cream, how come suddenly you want the red strawberry sorbet?" asked the ice cream man. The little girl scrunched up her face, trying to think of a way to answer it.

"I want something red, Oji-san." said the little girl innocently. The man laugh haughtily and grabbed the plastic cup.

"Aren't you afraid if you might drop it on your dress? Red over white is a hard color to wash off, you know.." asked the ice cream man again as he scooped some sorbet into the cup. The little girl shook her head happily, swishing her beautiful hair.

"There you go..." said the uncle as he handed the girl her sorbet before turning to the mother. "and what would you like?" asked the ice cream man to the mother.

"Vanilla ice cream please.." said the mother. She suddenly bent down and whispered to her little daughter's ear, "Could you wait outside for a moment? I'll pay for the ice cream first then I'll come for you, okay?" the girl nodded and walked to the door while her mother watched the little girl with a sad face. As soon as the door closed behind, the mother faced the ice cream man. Her face was different from what she showed her daughter before, she was scared, terrified, and trying to stand strong in the same time.

"Kiyoto, I.." said the scared woman, tears start streaming on her face again. The ice cream man just looked at her wisely and gave her a tissue.

"No need to, I'll protect her no matter what. Sata will accept her and so will I.." said the ice cream man. "She really has her father's smile.." compliment the one called Kiyoto, making the woman smiled weakly.

"If she ever ask what happened to me if I didn't make it, tell her when she's grown up.." instructed the woman, Kiyoto nodded and gave her a hug. Not a loving one, more like a supportive hug to the woman.

"Face him and win it. Then your daughter would be safe forever.." whispered Kiyoto, "If you don't, I'll protect her no matter what cost."

"Thanks, Kiyoto.." said the woman after she broke the hug. She smiled to the ice cream man sadly.

"I'm sure your daughter would be proud to have a mother and father like you." spoke Kiyoto.


Meanwhile...

The little girl hobbled in front of the shop like her mother told her to, she skipped and skipped with the red sorbet in her hand. Accidentally, collided with another person, making her sorbet land smoothly on her white dress.

"Hee? Yaba.." said the girl sadly. Her dress got red sorbet on it, she tried to rub it off but it just made the color spread wider on the white cotton dress. She regretted for choosing the red sorbet as her treat and tears started to fill her eyes..

"Are you okay, little girl?" asked the person that she just collided with. It was a bluff man in his twenties, he crouched beside the little girl who was close to tears now and patted her head. "Did your ice cream just dropped? I'm really sorry.." spoke the man kindly to the little girl. The little girl looked up to the man's eye and suddenly burst to tears.

The ice cream shop door bell rang again, this time the little girl's mother came out and snatched her daughter from the man. The stare she gave the man was beyond angry and madness, yet she hold her daughter tightly in her arms as the little girl cried. The woman gave her daughter a tight yet comforting hug until she calmed down.

"Look at me, go to Oji-san now. He'll take care of you, and also.." she gave her little girl a short kiss on her forehead, "I love you more than anything in this world, take care of your self and don't ever look back. Keep forward.." said the woman sadly to the girl. The little girl was confused in her mother's arm but nodded her head and headed for the door, before she came in again to the store she took a glance back to her mother.

When she came in and the door closed behind her, the voice of gun shot boomed.. The girl turned and her eyes widened when she saw the matching color of her dress on her mother's chest as the woman dropped to the ground.

Oka-san's ice cream was vanilla right? thought the little girl. She opened her mouth to scream out to her mother but then her voice was cut off by the hand that covered her mouth and dragged her away. She struggled and tears filled her eyes again as she saw he mother's last smile for her before the woman closed her eyes for the last time. She struggled harder but then was cut off  by a quick hit at the back of her neck that made the little girl crumpled in the arm of the ice cream man.

"Oka-san..." gasped the little girl before her eyes closed by it self.

Keep blooming like the flowers of summer, Natsumi..

"So, you came... Kiyoto." spoke the voice.

"Long time, Sata." said the ice cream man. He was no longer wearing his ice cream apron that he used to wear when he sold ice creams, a white suit has replaced it's position on his body.

"I thought you put yourself into the world of ice creams.. But it seems you still keep your bike in your garage." said the voice again, sounded pleased.

"Meh, just remembering the old times. That town has nice highways surrounding it, better than big cities like this place." replied Kiyoto with a smile. He welcomed the approaching palm with his own palm, making it a high five before receiving pat by the shoulder from someone.

"Great to see you, KIYOTO!" said the voice again sounded excited. He yelled the "Kiyoto" bit as he ruffled Kiyoto's hair, making the ice cream man grinning like crazy.

"How are you Sata?" asked Kiyoto. "Your jacket never changed.. Do you ever wash them?"

"Of course I have you idiot!" yelled Sata as well landing a whack on Kiyoto's head. The sound of whack echoed around the room, making Kiyoto winched in pain.

"Ittai.." said Kiyoto as he rubbed the spot where Sata's fist just landed. "Just like the old times, eh?"

"Yep, just like the old times!" said Sata as well as laughing haughtily.

"It's a pity that two of our family can't join this reunion.." spoke Kiyoto quitely, making Sata's smile suddenly faded away.

"So it's true? The on that you just brought then..?" asked Sata ghastly. "The last of Matsubara..?" Kiyoto nodded.

"The last of the legendary assassin family, Matsubara Natsumi." said Kiyoto with a weak disappointed smile. "Matsubara Kiyomi is now safely with Matsubara Takagi there.."

"They found her..?" Kiyoto nodded again. "The same guy that killed Takagi?" Kiyoto nodded again.

"I hope you can take care of her.." said Kiyoto. "He found her and killed her straight away at my ice cream shop, I'll be the next one to be crossed out on his black list."

"To be precise, the Government's black list." added Sata. "Sure, I'll take her in. But where are you heading next?"

"Somewhere far from here. I'll come back when everything has settle down.." replied Kiyoto with a sigh. "Can you do me one favor?"

"Anything for an old friend."

"It's actually for that girl." said Kiyoto, making the tension suddenly became serious. "Erase her memory, would you..?"

...

The little girl found her self waking up on a nice comfortable bed, the bed sheets were white as the fluffy clouds where she used to see in the summer some times. Making her remembering the moments with her mother where they both counted how many sheep up traveling in the sky. The scent of the sheets smelled like the sickening red roses that she smelled a few times in the town's park. She always hated roses, the sharp bit of it's stem always pricked her finger every time she touched it...

Red..

Her mind played the short video of the last time she saw the color, the horrible view then made her yelped in fear.

"Oh, you're awake?"

The girl turned to the source of the voice and found another girl sitting by the bed. She could only see her back and the brown straight hair, flowing behind her red dress. She watched in awe as the girl threw something and a few milliseconds later it stabbed a dummy's chest that stood a few meters from the bed, another was thrown and this time it's stuck on the dummy's head.

"Who are you?" asked the little girl. The girl in red dress turned her head, making the little girl gasped in surprise. The girl in red was wearing a gas mask that covered her entire face.

"Call me Rapper. Nice to meet you, Natsumi." said the muffled voice from the girl in red.




Sorry for the short update and the bad English. Before I can update the next chapter on Striker Team's mission, I need to explain about Natsumi's past first. Not so much part of Natsumi here, but at least there's the Bad Boys..

Hope you like it.

Rival Forever?
A Little Piece of Story: Bloody Summer

“Where am I?” asked Natsumi as she looked around the room. Her heart was pounding of course after being trapped with another girl in gas mask and a wounded dummy, she has no idea where she is and more importantly her mother isn’t here. “Where’s my mother?”
 
“Relax! You’re in my room.” Said the masked girl, whom sounded annoyed. “And I think your mother is dead.”

“No..” whispered Natsumi, her eyes started to fill up with tears as the flash back came for her again. “No! She can’t die yet!!” yelled Natsumi as she run for the door, she pushed it open but it wouldn’t budge. She kicked the door and screamed to anyone that hears her to open the door, but no one came for her. Then she gave up and ended up slumping in front of the door, gasping for air as her throat hurts badly.

“Done with your tantrums yet?” asked the masked girl approaching closer to her. From her tone and the her body language, she doesn’t sounded pleased. Natsumi’s heart pounded faster as she came closer, she moved back but the door behind her refused to let her do more. “Now tell me, you must’ve hate the color red aren’t you?” asked the girl suddenly as she produced a red rose suddenly from her hand. Making Natsumi’s facial expression turned to fear, her eyes widened and she started breathing heavily.

“Get away from me..” croaked Natsumi due to her hurting throat. Her mind started to twist itself suddenly..

“What’s wrong?”asked the masked girl again as she came closer. “Ah, that’s right! It’s the last color you saw from your mother, eh?” Natsumi’s eyes widened again as if her eyes were about popped out. How could this girl knew about it?

“Stop it..”

Red.. The color of the strawberry sorbet that she wanted instead of ice cream..

“Stop it..”

Red.. The color of the sorbet that she just bought spilled on to her white dress..

“Stop it..”

Red.. The color on her mother’s shirt after the loud noise…

“Stop it..”

Red.. The color of the liquid that trickled down her mother’s smile before it faded…


STOP IT!!!” yelled Natsumi angrily after the flashback attacked her again. She trashed her head  as her hands clenched over her ears as if trying to crush her own skull.

A hand touched her forehead and suddenly Natsumi’s vision went blur in red before slowly it turns darker and darker into black. But one thing was sure, as soon as her vision went black suddenly her heart calmed down and stopped pounding. The flash backs stopped their attacks, leaving it in peace..

“Oka-san..” whispered Natsumi before she falls to the ground in peace.


“She’ll probably wake up tomorrow..” said Rapper. Her face was still covered by the gas mask but her dress was now black with some red frills on it, kind of like the ones that goth Lolita wears for tea party.

“Good job, Rapper..” said Sata as he took a sip from his drink in his hand. “Ah, having a daughter like you really made life easier.” Said Sata, little girl just stood there motionless. “My little daughter, O…”

“Dad,” cut Rapper suddenly. Her voice was sharp and annoyed too, “First of all, I am not little.” said Rapper in a deep tone especially on the “little” bit. “ And second, don’t call me with my name. My name is Rapper, and that’s it.”

“Fine.. You really do like your nickname, don’t you?” said Sata sheepishly as he took another sip. “I hope when she wakes up, your talent goes on work. It’ll be hard to train her if she kept on remembering things..”

“I assure you,  father. Matsubara Natsumi will definitely continue her family’s legacy..” said Rapper before she bowed politely to Sata and left the room without being dismissed. After the sound of the closed door roamed in the air, Sata sighed and pulled out his phone before dialing a number.

“Kiyoto? It’s me. Your request has been done.” Said Sata taking another sip. “Take care of your bike? Really, Kiyoto.. And what? Watch the government’s movement? Of course I will!” yelled Sata.
 
“There’s no way I’m letting that guy lay his hands on Matsubara Takagi’s daughter!”

The End

Rival Forever?
Chapter 8


"Yuka!!"

...

A Week Before

"Target:  Mario Guerrimo, the boss of  one top mafia gang in the world, Le Cruz." Said Noro as she read through her file. We all hurdled around the table of our hotel room. Photos, maps, and classified folder lay in front of our eyes. My eyes caught the picture of a Latin guy in his forties getting out of a car, dark curly hair with a thick mustache and sun glasses. His hands were holding on a wooden walking cane with a metal carving shaped like a bat on it.

"Mission: Exterminate him and retrieve the Eye of Pablo." Said Yuka as she threw in a photo. It looks like a regular red ruby from the museum, but something was different somehow to me..

"The eye of Pablo is a magical artifact created by the ancient societies of south america hundreds of years ago. The color of red came from the blood of Spanish conqueror that were sacrificed in the process of making it. It's power is still mysterious, but it is believe to be one of the container of chaos power that caused the epic plague in Mexico that happened a century ago. " Explained Yuka as she went through one of her thick books that she had brought along. My eyebrows rose up, kind of sounded ridiculous to me if this was read to me before I knew the task force. But, this time my brain managed to absorb the unusual information now.

"Bloody piece of rock.." I commented, everyone stared at me then.

"Sorry. Just continue please.." I apologized.

"Pablo Guerrimo him self was said to be a descendant of the priest involved in controlling the Eye of Pablo. Making him also one of the toughest mafia on the planet since he can eliminate his enemies by his power over the stone. And not only that, he also got some mysterious bodyguards by his sides.." said Umeda Ayaka, throwing in four snapshots of each different person. One caught my eyes and made me smiling a little bit.

"Nice eyebrows.." I compliment, "kind of hard to find a woman with a thick eyebrows."

"Yeah.." added Yuko. The other midget rolled her eyes and took a sip of her drink, looking unsatisfied.

"Can't you both see the similarities of the bodyguards?" asked her boringly,

"They're all females." Yuko said.

"They're all looked Asian." said Noro.

"And they all looked Japanese.." I simplified, my eyes widely opened when I realized it. Yeah, they all have white skins, dark hair and the way they dressed.. Kind of teenage girls that hung out in Shibuya.

"Bingo." said Umeda Ayaka, putting down her drink. "Apparently, Mr. Guerrimo likes to recruit foreigners as his bodyguards. Especially Japanese."

"Why would he? Need an opponent or something for a sumo wrestling competition?" I asked sarcastically. I mean, that guy seriously looked pretty much like a Latin sumo wrestler already.

"He adores the Japanese since we have a hell of great mafias that he can make a deal with. From illegal Tobacco to drugs, all exported from him." explained Yuka before throwing in another picture to the table, my heart drops a bit when I saw the guy in the picture. Reminded me of the days before my betrayal.

"Sata Masaki, eh?" asked Yuko sheepishly. "Former bikers in the old days and now the head of 100.000 members of Yakuza that spreads across the country.."

"Not forgetting he's your ex-boss, Natsumi." said Umeda Ayaka as she sipped her drink again. My hands clenched and started sweating, remembering the day where I betrayed the guy that has took care of me. The day I pointed my gun at him..

"Any news about him?" I asked Umeda Ayaka, trying not to sounded so worried. But the girl just raised her shoulders

"So far the Government hasn't heard anything about his death yet." said her. I looked down, thinking what would happen to the old man once he's recovered. Hunting me down would probably be his top "things to do" list.

You're safe as long you stick with these guys.. I assured myself.

"Okay.." cut Yuka, "let's stick to the subject shall we?"

"Here's the plan, tomorrow Guerrimo will be having an open recruit to be his bodyguards. Yes, our source has sniff some Japanese most wanted criminals arriving tomorrow and we're splitting up. Two teams, different undercover.” Explain Noro, “One team will join the recruitment, the rest will join in later on.”

“Okay, cool..” I commented. Noro grinned at me, and somehow I don’t like that grin on her face.

“Glad you said that, because you and Umechan will join the recruit tomorrow as a team..” she said happily, while my jaw dropped instantly.

“What?? I’m partnering with her??” I asked sarcastically to the chubby ninja. She nodded and as for my assigned partner, she just continued sipping her drink. “What can this midget do anyway?” Ume’s eyes bulged when she heard the word and stopped sipping her drink.

“Oi!” she stood up and faced me angrily. “Don’t ever call me that!” she yelled. I couldn’t help myself not to grin though, after all I just found another thing to tease her with.

“Aren’t you one?” I asked innocently.

“Okay that’s it!!” she pulled out a gun from her pocket, which my body responded spontaneously by also pulling out El-Draco that hung on my waist all the time. We then ended up in a stalemate; she got her gun pointed to my head while my sword is just a few inches away from her neck.

“That’s enough you both!” spoke Yuka loudly, in a Kansai dialect. Making both of us stopped staring at each other and ended up staring at her, making her blushed slightly. “I mean it!” she added.

“Yuka’s right..” said Yuko throwing her soda can into the trash bin. “You can’t kill each other when you are both assigned as partners.” She said, but then she tilted her head slightly as if considering something. “Well, maybe you can but not now..”
The brown haired midget then eyed me dangerously before pulling back her weapon, to my surprise her brown eyes changed color slightly from deep purple before changing back to brown. I froze for a second there before realizing how odd situation has become, so I put back El Draco in it’s sheath.

Deep purple eyes.. Where have I seen that..?

As I tried to figure out the answer the meeting continues until Noro said it’s time to go to bed. But Umeda Ayaka then excuse herself to go outside for some fresh air when there’s actually a balcony in our hotel room, but then she said that she needs to have a walk around the city of Mexico first before the undercover just so she can get used to things. Yuko went to the bath and from the sound behind the door  (not that I’m eavesdropping on her) she seemed to be on the line with someone and started giggling unusually. Noro went to the hotel’s pool downstairs to have some swimming, leaving me and Yuka still sitting around the table, examining the folders again.
It was awkwardly quite between both of us until I decided to start the conversation.

“So..” I changed my sitting position slightly, “You and Ume going out together or something?” I asked innocently. Yuka blushed again, this time her face was redder.

“It’s not like that really, Natsumi..” answered Yuka quietly and still blushing. I could tell she’s hiding something.

“Then why do you have to lie to Sayaka when she asked you about why you came late?” I asked straight forwardly to her. Yuka’s eyes widened in surprise when I confronted her with such question.

“How did you..”

“Forget how I know it. Three of you were hiding something and probably Yuko knows it too, you all hiding something from me and Sayaka..” I confronted her, making the girl looked disturbed suddenly. “I may be new to this task force, but we’re a team now. Please don’t hide stuff from me, Yuka.”

“Natsumi, it’s not like that..”

“Then what is it?” I asked back. Yuka looked worried and disturbed more than ever now. She had put down her folders and leaned on her chair.

“I.. I can’t explain it to you..” I’m about to protest but Yuka still continuing her words, “yet. I promise I will tell you once it settles. Just don’t tell Sayaka, okay?”

I considered before finally giving in to her offer, I’m not going to push her further I think. “Fine.” I said, “But why would you lie to Sayaka? I mean she’s the captain of Team K, right?”

“The thing is Natsumi.. Sometimes being a leader like that carries big responsibilities. Not just for missions, but also to Team members too and sometimes it can led to unwise decisions.. “

“What you don’t trust her?” I asked. Yuka shook her head furiously.

“No! It’s not like that.. We just couldn’t let her be involved, since she has a lot of burdens already in her hands.” said Yuka.

“What do you mean?”

“You’ll find out later on, Natsumi.. But for now..” Yuka faced me, “Please get along with Umechan, Natsumi. I know she could be a sharp tongue and easily offended when it comes to height..”

“Not to mention slightly arrogant and kind of annoying when she used her melodic voice..” I mentioned, Yuka glowered at me then. “Sorry, continue please.”

“Sigh.. I guess that too.. But the thing is, she’s a really kind person deep down in her heart. I know she is.. And also she might look strong but she’s actually weak, Natsumi..”

“Wha? What do you mean?” I asked. I’ve heard that before I think..

“Just please watch her back for me, Natsumi. Do me that favor and I’ll tell you what you need to know later.” asked Yuka. “I swear I will.”
I looked at her in the eyes, that gentle dark irises of Yuka. It calmed me somehow, making me nodded to her calmly.

..........................................................................

Later that night, I crashed myself into one of the bed and took the ride to the dream world. But then the sound of flapping wind woke me up from my sleep slightly. I turned and saw the balcony door was open, the incoming wind made the curtains flapped which caused the noise. Luckily, my bed was located beside the door and I could hear people speaking there.

“She hasn’t come back from hunting?” the curious sound of Oshima Yuko was heard in my ear.

“Nope.” Said Yuka.

“Unusually long.” said Yuko. I could hear Yuka sighed then.

“The seal..” spoke Yuko. “It got loose didn’t it?” Yuka sighed again.

“Yeah.. Took two nights to tighten it.” answered Yuka briefly.

“And you’re not telling Sayaka?” asked Yuko.

“I can’t. She has enough burdens already in her hands, if she knew about this. She could lock her away for real.”

“Or kill her.” said Yuko. Making the tension goes silent somehow.

“I’m trying to figure out a way, okay? Been talking to Meetan and Kana about it..” said Yuka started to sound tired.

“Relax Yuka.. She’ll be fine. The seal got tightened again, right? And plus if there’s anything that’ll happen..”

“Yuko, I don’t know how Natsuki saw it. But that thing is dangerous!” said Yuka angrily somehow.

“But it’s the only chance to stop her if the seal goes off.” fought Yuko back. “I may not be good in magic and supernatural stuff, but I’ve seen what’s inside that thing Yuka. We both have.”

“Sigh.. I’m going to bed Yuko. This discussion is over.” said Yuka before I heard her coming closer. I close my eyes and pretended to sleep again, but then suddenly fatigue pulled me back into the trip to the dream world..

.................................................................................

The Next Day

"Guerrimo's base is located on the country side of Mexico, takes probably two hours to reach it." said my partner when we finished breakfast. She had put on her black coat and a pair of boots. While as for me, I've put on a long sleeve jacket over my tank top and a camo pants that goes to my knees. I was surprised how the jacket actually made me feel chilled instead of boiling hot.

"It's heat proof, cold proof, fire proof, water proof, and bullet proof." said Yuka. "It deflects your heat temperature when your surroundings are cold and it charges battery for the mini air conditioner in the jacket by being under the sun.

"Whew.. Conventional." I commented. "Now how are we going to reach his place?"

"I was happy you asked." grinned Umeda Ayaka. "Our ride is in the lobby."

After saying our goodbyes to Yuka, Noro, and Yuko, we headed down to the lobby with our backpacks and found our ride parked just outside the lobby. A black Ferarri with some white paintings and some touches of green. on the wheels and some parts of the car.

I whistled, "Sweet.."

"Yep." she pulled out the car key and pressed the unlock button.

"I'm on the wheel!" I yelled excitedly when I grabbed the keys from her hand and got in the driver seat. She just rolled her eyes and got into the front passenger seat. I turned on the ignition and drove to the country highway. We were both silent for a while, until I decided to follow Yuka's suggestion.

"So.." I began while my attention is still on the lonely road. "Is it easy for your eyes to change color?" I asked easily. She turned her head towards me, I took a glance. Her expression was surprisingly nervous somehow.

"Did you see?" she asked back. I nodded.

"Well, it might only be my imagination. But since you asked just then, I assumed it's real." I answered back. "Spill it out, Umeda. If we're going to be a team, we need to know each other more. You know mine, now let me know yours." I said sharply.

"You can't." she said quietly.

"Why can't I?" I asked still focusing on the road.

"Well at least not yet.." she added. And with that answer, I stopped the car on the side of the road.

"Does it have to do with seals?" I asked. I peeked again and found her staring at me in surprise.

"How did you.."

"Look, doesn't matter how I know it. Like I said, if we are going to be a team at least let me know more about you." I said grumpily. She shook her head and looked away to the open side window.

"Tell me Natsumi, do you ever fear if there's something big inside of you?" she asked quietly in melodic tone. "Like an eternal anger that will never calm? You always feel angry all the time." she sounded sad.

"Not sure about it.." I replied. "But I do fear something like that to El-Draco." she suddenly snapped her head back to me.

"What?!" she yelled. "Don't tell me that Natsuki.."

"You've seen what's inside it haven't you?" I asked but then I remembered last night conversation that I heard in the balcony. "Yuko and Yuka have seen it too, didn't they?"

"Natsumi." she said once.

"Yeah?"

"Drive." she said.

"Tell me more, Umeda." I urged.

"JUST DRIVE!" she yelled. She closed her eyes and took a deep breath, "Sorry.. Just drive back okay? We need to be there in 15 minutes." she said. I scowled but I did what she asked, soon we're back on the road.

"Sorry." I apologized quietly.

"I'm sorry too." she said. "I can't tell you the details, but I just got something inside of me."

"Something fragile?" I asked, focusing on the road.

"Yes, fragile." she nodded. "We're here." she announced.

............................................................................................

The Guerrimo's base was huge. Like resort more likely to be located on the mountains in the country side of Mexico. We parked our car in the parking lot and walked to the lobby.

"Recruits?" asked the receptionist. We nodded before then he showed us the way to the pool. There, a bunch of people have gathered around the area. From a small genius looking to big bluff man like Togasaki, all gathered here. Like what information said, they all seemed to be Japanese and a nasty ones.. They all turned their attention to us as we came closer, some has that mocking face on to us.

"If they have something about height to talk about, I'll answer them with my bullet." said my partner annoyed.

"Look on the bright side, at least there's someone shorter than you." I said, eyeing the small genius looking man.

"Everyone has gathered?" asked a voice from the speaker, sounded like a female voice. There's murmurs of "yes" in the crowd, and considering it as a yes answer another group of people came. A four females around 18 or so, all dressed like teenagers in Shibuya, just like in the photos last night. One of them has the thick eyebrows that I compliment, she looked young but those eyebrows really gave a brutish look on her pretty face.

One of them stepped forward, a girl with brown straight hair and some weirdly purple extensions on it. "Welcome, recruits." she said. "As you all know, Mr. Guerrimo is looking for new employees to work for him. And since all of you have gathered around here, we can't recruit all of you at the same time, can we?" she smiled coldly. "A test will be lay out for all of you. But before I explained, please gather your ID cards to Yagi here. You'll get it back once you make it back here."

"Okay, get you ID cards and put it in this bag!" yelled another girl with the red extensions.She went around and offering a small knapsack to people and soon filled up with ID cards. I threw mine in too, AKB S.Q.U.A.D has secured the ID cards so that they have a fake identities once it got searched. Ume throw her's in too.

Once Yagi gave the signal that all ID has been gathered, the girl with purple extensions continued. "Now, we've seen some of your rides that you used to get here. Around a few miles from here, there's an abandoned town in the desert. A big stock of marijuana was stored there for some reasons and police are coming after it." she grinned. "We want you to get the stocks first before the police got it. First one make it, got the job."

"You're allowed to use your weapons and so on. You've seen how much payment you can get when you are recruited in the contract, so for those of you who were already used to things, look how easy you can get from killing people." she said sarcastically. I nodded, I read the contract last night, and oh boy.. I think I can buy three Ferrari each year with that much of money.

"We have some surveillance camera around the areas, so we can see how is it going. And we will be watching you all with this guy.." she continued, then a man came out from the door beside her. A man with messy hair and a white suit, he looked old to me and surprisingly childish since he's actually licking an ice cream in his hand, from the look of it it seems like strawberry ice cream.

"Welcome to Le Cruz, fancy an ice cream?" he asked offering the crowd his half licked ice cream. "Like Hell I'm going to give you." he then said coldly. His eyes suddenly went cold and glowering,which gave me a little goosebumps somehow. But there's more, his aura radiates some coldness to the air somehow..

"Okay you heard him. You got one hour to do it before the police started searching." announced the girl again.

"Your time starts now."

Rival Forever?
Chapter 9



“Your time starts now.”

As soon as she said it, the whole group ran towards the lobby. I ran as fast as I could and was actually leading, I was sure that Ume was way behind me when suddenly I felt a gush of wind beside me. The next thing I found then, the midget was already in front of me.

“You’re quick.” I grinned. She just raised her shoulders and kept running. Then suddenly I felt another gush of windswept just a few inches from my left cheek and the sound of glass breaking after being hit by something. The next thing that happened then, I felt more of it coming and passed my sides just by a few inches.

Great, someone just started the fun already and we haven’t reach the car.. I complained.

“Who’s on the wheel?” yelled Ume as we kept running and dodging the incoming. One suddenly got too close to her head and luckily it only got her hairs, but it’s enough to piss her off. “Okay, that’s it!” she pulled out her gun and shot behind without looking. From the sound of it, it seems like she hit one.

“Your turn!” I yelled and pressed the unlock button. I lounged myself on the passenger seats and Ume got to the driver seat. She started the engine and when the seatbelt sounded click, we hit the road.

Coming down the mountain was kind of hellish. There are many sudden turns and the idea of falling on the edge of the road was about the same as killing yourself. Thank God, Ume can drive swiftly as a street racer. She managed to get both of us safely to the bottom of the mountain without so much fright.

As soon we hit the bottom of the mountain, we drove on the dusty desert road. Thanks to the wind, the dust rose up to the air as our car passed the road. It was alright for a few moments until I heard something cracking behind us. I looked at the back and found a crack on the glass window at the back, then another one appeared after a gun shot.

“They’re shooting us!!” I yelled in panic.

“Sounds like a bad news…” said Ume kept focusing on the road.

“Since when being shot multiple times by the best criminals becomes a good news?” I asked sarcastically. Ume smirked and kept on driving, I rolled my eyes and kept watching on how much more can the glass hold on.

“It’s bulletproof, Natsumi. And if you’re getting bored being shot and doing nothing, you can try opening the dashboard.” Said Ume. I sighed and pulled the dashboard cover and found multiple buttons ready to be pressed on. “Suggesting you the black button, you’ll love it.” She added.

I did as what she said. And suddenly the car's roof folded up by it self and tucked in at the back seat. A platform suddenly rose up at the back seat and to my surprise, there stood an automatic machine gun ready to be fired. I smiled in relief and took off my seat belt and stand on the platform.

"Whoever made this things, I LOVE YOU!" I yelled to the air.

"Tell that to Kana." yelled Ume as she kept driving.

Okay, flat face made this?
 
I took my aim, there's a few cars already showed up behind. They gawk in awe as I grasp the handle, too late my smirks already shown on my face. They haven't start shooting again to us, and so I'd like to return the favor.

"SO LONG SUCKERS!!!" I yelled before going crazy with the machine guns. In a few seconds, countless of bullets flew in the air and hit the cars behind. I tried to aim only on to the engines and avoided the front mirrors as much as possible, tying to get something that I've been longing for since I bust out of my gang's head quarters.

BOOM!!

The cars engines blew up, sending big mushroom of fire to the sky. Smokes and dust nearly blinded me from the view, and the heat.. Combined with the Mexican desert, it is hot as the oven. 

"Yatta!!!" I yelled with all my might, watching the huge explosion behind us. I would at least take out a few cars with that, making us on the lead. The last time I made an explosion like that was when I shot a barrel of fuel in the head quarter. It was a happy moment for a second before suddenly a bullet missed my head by a few inches.

"Whoaa!!" I stumbled. Luckily, I didn't fall on top anything or out of the car. I hanged on to the machine gun's handle and pinched my eyes, vaguely behind the smokes and dust I could see another car. Red Jeep with another mounted machine gun just like ours. Who's driving it?

"Ume, we've got a copy cat." I yelled. Ume took a glance at the side mirror, her expression was surprising. She was pouting and rolling her eyes.

"Natsumi, get back here." she said. "This is going to get rough." I did as she said and came back to the passenger seat, the platform sunk and the car's roof was spread out again on top of us. I can hear the bullets raining down on our back window.

"Okay, what are you planning?" I asked.

"Watch and learn." she winked to me. Suddenly she turned the wheel drastically to the right, making the car jerked to the right. But it doesn't stop there.

The car's point turned 180 degrees and now moving backwards.

I can see the the Red Jeep in front of us now, and the driver's face was beyond shock probably after seeing a car that just turned to face them and still moving backwards in a high speed. Forget about him, I think my face was worse.

"ARE YOU NUTS OR SOMETHING?" I yelled to the driver next to me. The young woman just smiled crazily and started laughing as if she was a little kid. I glared at her and suddenly looked at the direction we're moving, thank God that there are no cars heading towards us.

"Just watch the back!" she yelled. She pressed a button on the driving wheel and suddenly an automatic gatling gun appeared. Not only that, the driving wheel suddenly shrunk and turned into another form of steering wheel. Kind of like the ones in an airplane cockpit.

I just stare in awe as she started going crazy with it, sending more bullets to the red Jeep.

"Watch the back!!" she yelled. I glanced behind and vaguely saw a big truck coming in a high speed.

"Truck's coming!!" I yelled sarcastically. Ume just smirked and stopped shooting, the steering wheel turned back to normal. But we're still moving backwards.

"HOLD ON!!" she yelled and jerked the steering wheel to the right. Letting the incoming truck crashed in to the red Jeep, and sent another explosion to the air. I was too shocked to leave some comments or some swearing for the crazy driver next to me.

"Let's go shall we?" she said and start getting the car moving in the right direction properly, but still in it's top speed. As we drive on the dusty road, I made a mental note to my self not to let her drive again next time.

Unless I feel like for a heart attack.

No-one's POV - Le Cruz's HQ

"Got some information, Mayuge?" asked the girl with purple hair extension. She sat on a long couch as she watched a big screen showing the actions out there in the desert. So far she was impressed with the Black Ferrari since they've took out a few of their rivals already with some explosions, but the most amusing of all was when she saw the car moved backwards and started shooting bullets to the other car. Ending it with a sudden surprise, sending another big explosion.

"The driver: Umeda Ayaka, the youngest daughter of professor Umeda Yuuichi and professor Nara Akane. Both are famous scientists that discovered and proved some kind of ancient theory about biological weapons. The family was massacred ten years ago, and she's the only survivor. No more backgrounds about her, I'm afraid Comeback." said another girl who sat in front of a huge computer monitor nearby. Her thick eyebrows scrunched in confusement.

"What do you think, Kiyoto-san?" asked Comeback to the figure sitting next to her. The figure just continued licking his ice cream and stare at the screen blankly, his ice cream somehow started dripping on to his white suit.

"Umeda.. I think I've heard the name before." he said. "Their massacre case is still unsolved. No traces of clues and other thing that belonged to the suspect was found from the crime scene." he added. Comeback tilted her head as if trying to get the information into her head.

"Who's with her, Sanshoku?" asked Mariyagi who sat beside Comeback and was licking an ice cream. "Kiyoto-san, your Raspberry ice cream is delicious.." compliment Mariyagi to the man, earning a look from Comeback.

"The key of it is fresh fruits!" said Kiyoto winking to Mariyagi whom happily ate her ice cream. Comeback just sighed in annoyance.

"I got it." said another girl who also facing a computer monitor next to Mayuge. Unlike her other friends, she wears a colorful scarf around her head. "Matsubara Natsumi, the last member of Matsubara clan." Comeback froze and Mariyagi stopped eating her ice cream.

"Matsubara? As in the legendary Matsubara Clan?" asked Mayuge to the girl beside her, Sanshoku nodded. Comeback blew out a whistle and Mariyagi licked her ice cream awkwardly.

"Wow.. This year recruit isn't too shabby, isn't it Kiyoto-san?" asked Comeback. "Kiyoto-san?"

The man didn't answer nor licked his ice cream. His face was hard to read, either he is day dreaming or thinking about something.

"Kiyoto-san?" asked Comeback again. This time he jolted up to the call and suddenly grinned.

"Ahh, sorry about it." said Kiyoto. "Pass out a little there hearing the name." he added. Earning a look from each of the four girls.

"Passing out with your eyes open is probably one of your specialty, Kiyoto-san." commented Mariyagi licking her ice cream again.

"I suppose so.." he sighed. "Well, anyone wants ice cream? I need to get more ice creams." he announced as he stood up.

"Kiyoto-san, you're still holding your ice cream you know.." pointed out Comeback.

"Going to run out soon." he said with a grin. "Anyone?"

"Blueberry!" yelled Mayuge.

"Bubblegum!" yelled Sanshoku.

"And you..? asked Kiyoto to Comeback. The girl sighed and rolled her eyes.

"Mint with chocolate chips." she gave in. Kiyoto smiled again before walking out of the room.

...

N-one's POV - Out in the corridor

"Hey, it's me Kiyoto." said Kiyoto on the phone. "Your father's awake yet?"

"No, still lying on the bed motionless." answered the receiver shortly. Even her sentence was short, Kiyoto can easily sense the anger on the tone.

"Listen Rapper, you've got to take your father's place. Until he recovers, everyone will get confuse." said Kiyoto.

"Well guess what, Kiyoto? We lost about 20 people that night, and police drops by at the base. Why don't you come here and do it yourself?!"

"I can't. Lat time I've heard, the government is still hunting me."

"Then you're a coward. Just like that stupid Matsubara Natsumi!!" yelled Rapper on the phone.

"Listen, if you want to find her, get your powers back together. Gather the gangs and continue your father's work,you'll easily find her." said Kiyoto.

"Oh sure. Someone took her away when we cornered her that night, Kiyoto. And I got my self a bullet on my leg thanks to that!"

"Who took her away, Rapper?" asked Kiyoto.

"Can't see it's face, it's hooded just like I am now. But her weapon was a silver gun I think." said Rapper. Kiyoto's eyebrows rose in surprise.

"Hmm.. Call me when your father is awake, Rapper." said Kiyoto.

"Did you found an information about that?" asked Rapper. "Tell me, Kiyoto. I swear I'm going to kill that girl!"

"If you want to revenge for your father, get your powers back together and find her." said Kiyoto sharply. "Remember call me when your father is awake." said Kiyoto before hanging up the call.

"Well, well, well... Matsubara's last heir is back." said Kiyoto to the empty corridor.

Heyy, Chapter 10 is here!! I'm splitting it to a few parts alright? Sorry for the bad English and the compositions, but I got a little UmeNatsu moment there.. For Yuka's fans, Gomenasai!! *bowing deeply in 90 degrees angle*

Critics, comments, and suggestions are welcome!!


Rival Forever?
Chapter 10 (Part 1)

The room was on fire. Everyone tried to rescue one another with their powers, but they soon got weary of it. Some had some burn marks on their skin, a few parts of their clothes was left scorched by the fire, some people looked like having troubles with their breathings thanks to the smokes all over the place. Medics are having troubles to deal with the wounded ones.

“Are you okay?” asked Meetan to a girl who’s lying on the ground. The doctor looked a little younger and healthier. She put her hands on the girl’s chest and it glows as the lying girl released a relieved sigh. Besides her, other medics helped some more victims too. Chiyuu was giving a CPR to another girl and Maachan was attending a badly wounded girl nearby.
I looked around, the wounded increased quickly and some people were trying to put out the fire with their powers. But the fire became bigger for every minutes spent.

“What’s going on?” I asked myself. I approached the fire and touched it with my fingers, I was expecting a hot pain running through my fingers. But miracle happened, I don’t feel a thing at all..

What the… I thought to myself confused. I reached someone’s shoulder whom just walked pass and my hand just went through it.

“Am I a ghost..?” I asked to myself horrified. Before I knew the answer, I heard a loud growl from the fire. I walked straight into the fire and found myself facing a creature that only found in fairytales.

A twenty foot tall red dragon just stood there in front of me.

I just gawked at it and thankfully thankful that I’m a ghost. If I’m not, I was sure the dragon would have an enjoyable time to breathe some fire to me and turning me into a crispy fry or something like that. Suddenly something caught the dragon’s neck and wrapped around it, making the dragon yelped loudly. I saw chains wrapping around it and when I saw the edge of it, Noro was there pulling it tightly.

“Yuko, a little help would be wonderful here!!” she yelled. Yuko was on my right suddenly, her short figure was accompanied by Yuka. They both looked horrified at the dragon, as if they just saw a nightmare in front of them. “Yuko!!” yelled Noro again. The dragon struggled, making the chains rattled. Luckily Yuko snapped out of it and run to the nearest wooden box and pull out another set of chains.

“On it!” she yelled. The little midget threw it and it caught the dragon’s snout, she pulled and snapped it shut. She smiled and suddenly her expression changed as she yelled, “No!! Don’t come, Sae!!!”

I glanced to Yuko’s direction view and saw Sae walking limply towards the dragon with her fist wrapped around a long piece of metal with sharp edges. The tomboy’s expression was outrage; I can see her hand bleeds when it closed around the metal. But she doesn’t seem to cared, she just kept on walking with a murderous auras around her.

“Get her away from here!!” yelled Noro, struggling to keep the dragon in place. Before I could reach her, a hand stopped me from my left. I glanced quizzically at my left and saw Sato Natsuki standing there grimly.

“Natsuki..” I whispered. “You can see me?”

“Of course I can. How can I stop you if I can’t see you?” she asked back. Her face was extremely grim thanks to the dark rounds around her eyes, but she doesn’t seem to look much pale anymore.

“Where..”

“Just watch.” She said pointing back to Sae. I glanced and saw someone running towards her, she grabbed Sae’s shoulder and jerked her back so that she’s facing her. I closed my mouth as I horribly saw the sharp metal in Sae’s hand punctured the girl’s stomach.

“Sayaka!!” yelled Yuka. She ran towards the fallen girl and pulled the metal out, Sae was standing there looked horrified what she had just done. She saw her own hands, covered in blood and saw her surroundings in fire. Her face was terrified, her knees buckled and she covered her ears as she released a scream.

“Sae..” croaked Sayaka. The wound looked pretty bad and her face was drenched in sweat. She tried to get up, but then she coughed up some blood and moaned in agony.

“Sayaka! Please stay still!!” said Yuka. I saw her beautiful face in confusion, panic, and terrified. But she kept doing what she’s up to, which is healing Sayaka just like Meetan did.

“No.. Sae..” croaked Sayaka as she tried to crawl, making herself experienced more pain. Suddenly a pair of hand brought down the captain’s shoulder and forced it to the ground, knocking the captain out.

“Kana..” said Yuka. The flat face surprisingly looked worried and glanced sacredly at the raging dragon. She glanced back to the fire and another figure stepped in, turning everyone’s expression into horror.

“No way..” gawked Yuka with her mouth opened.

“I’ll take care of it.” said the figure. I recognized the melodic voice immediately without a doubt.

“You’re going to blow this place up!” yelled Yuko.

“I won’t, I promise.” She said. “Kana, get Sayaka to Meetan. Yuko, let go of it and grab Sae out. Yuka and Noro, I need you here.”

“You’ll die!!” yelled Noro. The figure smiled.

“I won’t. That thing’s power was about the same amount of power as mine, I should be alright.”

“You are not!!” yelled Yuka, Yuko, and Noro in unison.

“DO IT!!” she yelled back, making everyone looked taken back. “It’s the only way..” Yuko nodded and let go of the chains before dashing down to grab Sae’s waist.

“Sorry, Sae.” She said before dashing through the fire with the struggling Sae. Kana did the similar, she put Sayaka on her back before ran out of there. Leaving us with the dragon.

“Don’t overdo it..”said Yuka.

“Let’s see about that…” said Ume before she sneered. Her eyes changed color into dark purple and suddenly turned bloody red.

Kill.. I heard a voice in my head, making my body shivered.

Before I could see what happened next, Natsuki snapped her fingers. All around us freeze like statues, even the fire and the raging dragon.

“What the..?” I said.

“Memories..” said Natsuki. “Easier to be shown than to be explained. You want answers right?”

“But this…”

“Well it’s a part of it.” She shrugged. “You have to figure out the rest, Natsumi.”

“The dragon…” my eyes widened. “It’s El-Draco isn’t it?”

Natsuki nodded and looked at the frozen dragon. “Nearly burned down the whole building that day.. And as the captain, Sayaka was put on her last strike. If another thing happened, she
would be kicked out from the task force..” she said grimly.

“That’s why you’re hiding it from Sayaka..” I said. “About you and Yuka tightening Ume’s seals.. If she knew..”

“She would probably kill her.” spoke Natsuki before she glanced back at me. “You should probably head back now, Natsumi.”

“Wait! Head back to where?” I asked confusedly. But Natsuki just smiled thinly.

“It’s just a dream Natsumi. Go finish your missions now.” I don’t know if my eyes started playing tricks on me or something but I can vaguely saw Natsuki’s body started to disappeared, I looked at my hand and the same effect happened to me too.

“Wait!” I yelped to the girl. My brain started to malfunction again due to the weirdness around, but Natsuki just smiled again to me.

“Don’t be scared of it, Natsumi. You’re it’s master, it should obey you. Not the way around.” She said before the last part of her body disappeared into the thin air. I looked around, horrified. Then before I knew it everything was dark.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------


Le Cruz’s HQ


I opened my eyes and stared into the ceiling before I sat up. The room was surprisingly cold but my body sweats a lot as if I just got out of the saunas.

Or maybe the fire…

“You’re awake.” I looked at the balcony and found Ume’s figure standing in the balcony with her back facing me. “You really should eat a lot, you know. You know.. Stay healthy or something like that.”

“What happened?” I asked annoyed as I got out of the metal bed. Ume turned and threw something at me which later then I caught, it’s my ID card.

“You passed out when we drove to the small town. I got the package and got myself ambushed by the police and no one backed me up.” She eyed me coldly.

“Well at least you seemed to look alright now.” I said sheepishly as I head down to the balcony and stood beside her. The view there was amazing, the mountain ranges of Mexico spreads across the horizon.

“Took a few minutes to take care of them.. But in the end we got the job and when we returned you had a high fever.” She said.

“What?? I had a fever in the middle of the desert?” I asked in disbelieve, Ume just shrugged.

“Probably because of the heatstroke or something.” She said. “And the Guerrimo wants to see us at six o’clock tonight.”

“Roger that..” I said with a sigh. “I might take a shower first before that then.” I turned around but her hand caught mine, making me glanced at her. “What’s up?”

What she did next surprised me. She put her palms on both of my cheek and pulled it down towards her face, then she edged her forehead forward towards mine until both of them touched each other. I can feel my cheek grows warmer as I felt it blushing awkwardly.

Her face.. It’s so close..

“Ume..” I whispered nervously. “Just what are you doing..?” Her forehead was cold against mine, making me shivered a little. The thin lips closed to mine and her closed eyes formed thin lines on where her eyes supposed to be.

Everything about her.. Something doesn't feel right..

"Ssh.. I'm trying to check your temperature." she said softly. Somehow the awkward tension made me closed my eyes, I felt her warm breath for the first time since I was so close to her. But before I could enjoy more of it, I can feel her pulling away and with a matter of milliseconds she flicked my fore head.

"Ittai!!" I yelped as I rubbed my forehead. I opened my eyes and saw her grinning at me as if enjoying my agony.

"It's not as hot as yesterday, you should be fine." she said with a grin which made me scowled as I rubbed my forehead.

"Damn you, Ume." I growled. She poked her tongue out in victory before I turned to head to the bathroom.


~at six o'clock

I heard a knock on our door and Ume opened it. Two girls stood there by the door with the smug faces, I tried to kept my face as flat as possible. They came in to our room and when they looked at me, the one with purple hair extension beamed at me.

"Ah, you're awake!" she gleamed then she offered her hand to me. "I came back from the bottom of hell, Comeback." she introduced herself.

I took her hand simply, "I supposed so.. Matsubara Natsumi desu, yoroshiku." we shook hands then. The other girl with pink extension then offered her hand too, I recognized her by the thick eyebrows she has.

"Natural born. Mayuge~bon!" she said. And before it gets too awkward, she added "Mayuge desu."

"Right.." I said as I shook her hand.

"Ready to meet the boss?" asked Comeback. I just shrugged and followed her out, followed by Ume and Mayuge.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

No-one's POV

~Mario Gerrimo's room

The hidden camera that has been set inside the room revealed it's results. Mario Guerrimo has been watching for a few minutes on his new employees, he was impressed by Comeback's report on the recruits and he looked pleased on what he saw in the big screen. He continued to smoke his cigar as he leaned leisurely against the sofa, in his other hand was a glass filled with smooth scented liquor that he adores.

"Cute girls.." he spoke in Japanese. He normally would speak in Spanish or Latin, but he found him self stuck in love with the Japanese culture. Making him eager to learn Japanese until he's fluent at it. Not only that too, he's not alone in his room. Another figure was leaning on his lap, slowly laying her head on it.

"Do you really thing that they are cuter than me..?" asked the figure with a seducing tone. Thick and heavy tone but giving it an ecstasy effect for those who heard it. Guerrimo glanced down and stroke the girl's smooth skin, making her moaned slightly.

"Of course not.." he spoke softly, bringing his nose to the girl's ear and nibbled it slightly and Made the girl moaned again in pleasure. "She's really enjoying this, doesn't she? The girl whom came to me just a while ago really enjoying this?" he asked on the girl's ear.

"Yes.." she whispered softly. The man's word really had tingled her ear and making her nape shivered slightly. "Too bad you only made me revealed my new lingerie~" she said seductively.

"Now.. Now.." he tried to assure the girl. "Now is not the right time.. I have to go down there in a few minutes to meet them."

"Do you have to?" pouted the girl. Guerrimo just smiled and got up from the sofa.

"Would you accompany me?" he asked as he offered his hand to the girl. "Masuda Yuka.."

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

AKB S.Q.U.A.D's HQ - Sato Natsuki's room

Natsuki opened her eyes and stare into the room. She only sat cross legged in the middle of the room for a few minutes, but yet she's panting and sweats quite a lot as if she just work out. She smiled and thought about what she had just done, even if it cost her a lot of energy. It was worthed.

"Welcome back, Natsuki." said a cold voice from the corner of the room. Natsuki glanced and saw a tall figure standing there, even there's little bit of light in the room she doesn't need more to know who's there.

"Sayaka.." she gasped. "Why are you here? How long.."

"Long enough to hear the whole thing." she said stepping closer to the clairvoyant. "How could you do this to me?!"

"Sayaka.. It's.." Natsuki's words were cut off by Sayaka's grasped on her collar.

"Don't talk rubbish, Natsuki. You and the others hiding it from me? Your captain?" she said angrily. "Your friend..." she said softly. Natsuki looked ashamed at the captain but in the same time trying to let go of the captain's grasp. No need for her to succeed, the captain suddenly fell towards her, knocked out.

"Sayaka!" Natsuki caught the captain's body then saw who done it, a girl with a childish face and a jet black hair. "Erepyon.."

"Hey Natsuki." said the girl. "Need some help?" she offered. Natsuki nodded and place the captain lying on the grong facing the ceiling.

"Could you delete some of her memories? The recent ones I mean.." she pleaded. Erepyon's eyebrows rose in an interesting peak, then she bent down beside the blacked out captain.

"You sure? If we're busted, we're doom you know.." she asked. Natsuki nodded then looked at the captain with a troubled face.

"It's the only way for the sake of Team K.."

Anyway, here's the next part! Sorry for the bad English and Composition! Enjoy and please, critics, comments, suggestions are welcome!

Rival Forever?
Chapter 10 (Part 2)

Comeback and Mayuge gave us a tour around the base. The hallways were packed with some ornaments or displays of antique stuffs worth of fortunes. I recognized one of the painting on the wall as an antique painting that was stolen ages ago from a museum, seems like Guerrimo has enough money to make it his.

"Seems like boss really likes collecting antiques here.." I whistled amusingly, enjoying the hallways like going through a museum. Ume nodded in agreement as keeping an impressed face at the collections.

"Hmph, I suppose so." snorted Comeback. "Never really bothered to look at it my self." she added ignorantly.

After a few more steps we stopped in front of a heavy looking wooden door. Instead of opening the door, Comeback leaned to the nearest wall and crossed her arms across her chest as if waiting for someone. Mayuge also did the same, accept she pull out a phone out of her pocket and typed on it.

"Are we waiting for someone?" Asked Ume taking an empty spot on the wall to lean herself. Comeback nodded and glanced behind us, a smile spread across her face as my ears caught the sounds of footsteps coming closer.

"There you are." said Comeback lightly. I turned and saw a group of people coming closer with another faces that I recognized, a girl in colorful bandanna and the girl who collected our IDs, Yagi. Two more new figures also joining in the group.

"Sanshoku desu." introduced the bandanna girl to us. "These guys will also join you on tasks later on." she added, introducing the two figure behind them.

"Oshima Yuko." said the smallest figure between the two. She gave me one of her squirrel grin which later then I replied with a sneer.

"Noro Kayo." said the other figure. She gave a slight a salute to us along with a confident smile.

"Since we're all here, let's meet the boss shall we?" cut Mayuge quickly. Comeback opened the wooden door widely then and we all followed her into the room...

...

Last Night~

"You've got to be kidding me.." I groaned. "Don't you guys ever think that it's too dangerous?" I eyed them in disbelieve.

"You've got another plan, Natsumi?" asked Noro calmly despite my rudeness. I gritted my teeth because no I don't have any other plan.

"But.." I tried to spin my brain for an idea. "Come on Ume! You know this is dangerous!" I spoke to Ume desperately. Her facial expression was hard to read, either she's giving a thought about it or actually kept her anger low after hearing the plan.

"Natsumi.." she spoke. "I don't like it too, being honest. This plan of yours.." she eyed Yuka who stood next to Noro worriedly. "But that's our only chance to get closer to the target.."

"So you eventually agree with this?!" I asked sarcastically. Ume sighed in desperate before eventually nodded. That's it, I threw my hands up in sign of giving up.

"Don't worry I can take care of my self.." said Yuka carefully. Her face was just as hard to read as Ume's, she looked determined but I can sense a tinge of fright in her tone. I didn't say anything.

"Okay.." spoke Yuko finally after watching our little drama passing by. "So Yuka takes care of Guerrimo and we both..." she pointed to herself and Noro, "Will join another recruits session they have."

"Guerrimo also recruiting some "professional" thieves for some reasons. And it will also be held tomorrow." explained Noro further. "Me and Yuko will get job so we can all at least made a contact with each other better than transmitting with radios."

"Speaking of thieves, it's been a long time I haven't been one." grinned Yuko happily before being eyed dangerously by Noro. "Anyway.. We've got to be careful of those four girls there." she eyed the photos of Comeback, Mayuge, Yagi and Sanshoku. "We don't know their abilities yet."

I nodded as my mind to process the whole thing before glancing at Yuka. The risks that she put on is much more dangerous than ours.... I thought.

Yuka seemed to notice my worries and gave me a smile. "Don't worry I'll be fine, I'm a good actress. " she winked to me.

I swear my face blushed when she did that.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Back to Le Cruz's HQ

We entered the room and was offered the view of a long room with many windows on the walls just like in churches. Instead of being filled with many benches, there's only one grand sofa located in the front of multicolored windows in front of us. We approached it closer by walking on the thick red carpet that sprawls to the grand area, I can see three figures waiting for us there. Two was on the sofa and another one stood by it's side, watching us.

"Stop here." whispered Comeback to four of us. We stopped at our spot and formed a horizontal line facing the grand area, while Comeback, Mayuge, Yagi, and Sanshoku entered the grand area and stood next to the standing figure whom I recognized as the ice cream guy that I saw before.

Guerrimo smiled down upon us as he stood up from his seat and widely open his arm. "Welcome to Le Cruz!" he welcomed us. His mustache was shaved than we saw in the pictures, and despite of his wide flamboyant smile he has put on, I can see his eyes were surveying us one by one.

I kept my self cool and so does everyone else. I knew we're facing one of the top mafias in the world and not forgetting a descendant of ancient priestess with possibilities of magic. So yeah, being panic is not an option at all.

"Not so much of being talkative, eh?" he smiled again. "Very well.. I'm sure you all know what Le Cruz is all about. And since all of you past your tests, I will give you your very first mission.." he grinned before an large panel descended from above and covered the multi colored windows. An image appeared before our very own eyes, a pair of transparent sandal decorated with many precious stone was displayed in a glass case and surrounding it were armed polices. The image zoomed closer into a part of the sandal where a big rosy colored ruby was attached there.

"The stone there is an abnormal kind of rubies. It has a darker color than other regular rubies due to some rare chemical reactions that occurred in the process of forming the stone thousands of years ago. Because of it's dark color, the stone was better known as Pigeon Blood." Guerrimo began to explain with his hands in his pocket. "Legends said that the stone holds a mysterious power, powerful enough to start a world war III." he smirked. "I want you to get it for me."

I raised my eyebrows after hearing his explanation, my mind raced to figure out ways on how is he planning to use it once he got hold of it. I kept myself to stay composed as much as I can, glanced a little to my left when Yuko raised her hand.

"So you're saying that we'll have to steal some kind of so called "magical" item there?" she asked with a confused reaction. Guerrimo caressed his cheek as if he's trying to figure out on what is he gonna say next.

"Well... Apart from the legend, the stone it self was a rare item which cost quite a fortune in the black market. Many collectors are willing to pay for such a beautiful stone like that." he replied with a contemned eyes. "The stone will be displayed in two days in an exhibition at the a famous museum in United States. I will be invited as a guest on the launching of the exhibition and I expect the museum will be packed with securities."

"Wait! We're going to United States?" asked Noro in surprised. Guerrimo nodded and carried on.

"I have secured some save passages for our journey there, so most of your criminal records wouldn't make a loud beeping noise in the custom area." said Guerrimo with a sharp tone and a careful eyes towards us especially Noro. "The four of you will go as a team in this mission. Each of you have your own abilities, and I expect this would be done perfectly without the alarms going off."

"Understood?" he asked to all of us, I nodded and so does everyone else. "Good, the museum layouts will be distributed by Comeback and you have two days to figure out your moves for the day." he went back to the sofa but didn't sit on it instead he offered his hand to the figure who's sitting on the sofa. My eyes caught the familiar curling lips filled with hunger for a split second, a tinge of worry dropped in my mind.

"Stop worrying, I'll be fine." her words replayed on my mind. I gulped in nervousness but I managed to keep it cool, slightly.

"Best of luck to all of you!" yelled Guerrimo before he left with his arm wrapped around the slim waist. Before the door closed behind them, I caught  the vulgar view of Guerrimo pecked on the girls lips. I looked to my side where my partner stood and saw a flickering pair of purple irises. I could feel a slight of dark aura swirling around her and for a split second I thought that she's gonna blow up. Thankfully Noro put her hand on her shoulder as if she sees it too.

She shot a relieving yet confident smile before she looked at Comeback. "So we're really going there? United States I mean.."

"Yep. We've read each of your records, each of your criminal records." snickered Comeback. "Noro Kayo, known as Queen Joker. The famous thief who broke in to the San Francisco Museum a few years ago and stole the "Azure Blue" Saphire worth of twenty five million Dollars.."

"That's me.." sighed Noro in surrender.

"Not to mention getting hunted by the Interpol for stealing other precious stones worldwide." continued Comeback as she settled on the abandoned couch.

"Yep, that's me.."sighed Noro again.

"We've secured your pass for later,so you don't have to worry much about it." said Sanshoku sitting on the couch next to Comeback before she glanced at Yuko. "Oshima Yuko, known as Cyber Squirrel. Graduated from University in the age of 15 before making it to the most hunted hackers on the planet after hacking into the NAVY SEALS network."

"I miss that name.." hissed Yuko. "I haven't been touching computers for a while now.."

Sanshoku shrugged, "Your name is still on the list you know." she pulled out a tablet and slide her finger upwards towards the large panel. Yuko's face pops up on the screen with a few information on the side. I whistled lowly when I saw the price for her head.

"Five million?" I glanced at Yuko with a raised eyebrows, Yuko shrugged in pleased. I never really thought that she was a hacker, all I know for a fact was that she's really smart despite her squirrel figure.

"Ah, by the way..." said Mayuge as if she just remembered something. She glanced at me and smile before approaching me and grabbed into my hand, "I'm honored to meet you, Matsubara-san." she said as she shook my hand like a fan girl meeting her idol. My eyebrows raised again and glanced at Ume for help.

The midget just shrugged in enjoyment, I scowled and mouthed "not helping" to her before giving an awkward nod at Mayuge.

The thick eyebrows girl just smiled happily, "I've heard a lot about the Matsubara family, and I can't believe that I've got to meet one!!" she said. I froze for a second after what she said.

My family..? The truth is, I never know my own family.. I mean, since the gang took me in, I don't remember anything else..

All the sudden my head starts to throb hard painfully that I let go off Mayuge's hand and clutched my head as well as closing my eyes. Strange images starts to play on my head, a grave stone and an image of bloody red ice cream. My knees sunk all the sudden and before I completely fell, I felt an arm caught my body and supports it.

"Oii, Natsumi!!" the voice of Ume played in my ears. I opened my eyes hazily and saw her cradling me in her arms as everyone else gathers around us all. "Her fever broke out again!" she said after placing her palm on my forehead. I closed my eyes and cursed in my mind for this weak body of mine as my head was hurting again.

Damn it... Why now?! I cursed. Stupid Natsumi...

...

I opened my eyes hazily and stared into a the blank ceiling, I sat up and felt a cool napkin fell into my lap. I picked it up and put it back on my forehead as recalling my mind to play my last memory as best as it can, which ended up making my head hurts again, slightly. I shook it off and looked around the room. Simply small with painted white walls, a curtain divided the room into two small section and behind the opened curtain, I could see another empty linen bed like mine.

"You're awake."

I glanced at the source of the voice and found the ice cream guy standing by the door as he licked his ice cream. He was licking a white creamy ice cream as his other hand was holding a familiar ice cream and offered it to me, it was the identical one as the one in the images. I shuddered slightly as my eyes stared at the bloody red ice cream.

"What? You don't like ice cream?" he asked.

I shook my head as keep on staring at the ice cream before glancing to him, "Isn't it a bad idea to give ice cream to someone who just passed out a while ago?" I asked. The guy chuckled but still offering the ice cream to me.

"Nonsense! Ice cream is for anyone, even people who has tonsillitis surgery are encouraged to eat ice cream." he said.

I shrugged, "if you say so.." I took the food nervously and stare at it before taking a lick. The taste of Raspberry burst into my tongue all the sudden, making me wonders trucked.
 
"Oishii!!!" I exclaimed happily. I haven't ate ice creams for a while, the last time I remember eating them was after one dinner party on Rapper's 12th Birthday party. Come to think of it, it really has been a long time.

"Glad you like it, I made it my self." said the guy taking a seat on a chair next to the bed. "I'm Kiyoto by the way, the security supervisor of this place." My eyes widened in surprise after hearing the confession. Well you don't see a security supervisor of a mafia group that has good potential to open his own ice cream shop.

"You seem to be just fine to open your own ice cream parlor instead of working here, Kiyoto-san." I praised as I continued eating the ice cream. "So where am I? Where are the others?"

"You know, I might actually do that after I retire.." he said dreamily as if he's considering it. "This is the hospital wing and your friends are probably in the common room now to figure up the strategy for the upcoming event." he explained. I nodded awkwardly as I continued finishing my ice cream.

"You know, you really looks like your parents.." he said, making my tongue froze midway before touching the ice cream.

"You know my parents?" I asked, putting the cup of ice cream on my lap. My heart throbs with the guy possibly knowing my family past in front of me. "You know my family, then?"

Kiyoto nodded, "Well, Matsubara clan's name hasn't been popping out these days but their powers are something to be remembered by everyone for centuries. Especially in the world of assassination."

"My family is..." I said shakily before he cuts me off.

"I wouldn't be surprise if you don't know your family history at all, Matsubara-san. The truth is, your family was annihilated before you were even born." he said. My eyes widened in shock hearing it, the truth of my family...

"Then how could I..."

"Your parents was the last bit of the clan who survived the annihilation. They managed to give birth to you before death comes for them." he explained. "You are the last of Matsubara, Matsubara Natsumi-san."

"I...I.." I was speechless hearing the information and without realizing that a tear drops on my cheek before it trails down. "Who..."

"Unfortunately, that's a mystery." said Kiyoto looking at other direction. "No one knows who did it, many tried to solve it an failed. Matsubara clan's annihilation was put into the 'unsolved' files. And still remains as a mystery.."

"I..." I couldn't say anything after hearing all of it. For the first time I felt my heart empty as the vast desert, feeling it blown the wind of sadness and desperation. I couldn't help not to let another tear drops.

Kiyoto watched me carefully as he expressed his sympathy. "I'm sorry for your loss.." he said. "Your father is a good man. A professional guy who loves his family dearly." I sniffed hearing it and looked at the sympathetic face of Kiyoto. "Your mother is a great woman too. Not letting opportunities slipped by her hands all the time.."

I looked down to my melting ice cream, after hearing the stories I couldn't help to think how much fate has made me suffer so far. Planning to make me insane somehow by the looks of it.

Kiyoto raised from his chair and head towards the door to leave me to rest. When I saw the door opened, I urged my self to speak.

"Thank you, Kiyoto-san.." I spoke slowly, processing my mind again. "Thank you for your condolences.." I said before lifting my ice cream, "Thanks for the ice cream too by the way!" I grinned sheepishly. Kiyoto just grinned back before stepping out of the room, leaving me completely alone..

...

Two days later: A famous Museum in New York, US

"Thirty seconds before the security breakdown starts." informed Yuko through the earpiece.

The voice of the party held on the main floor was loud enough to secure our hiding spot on top of the building, especially with Ume scanned the surroundings with a binocular. I pulled out a laser cutter from my pocket and looked at Noro for confirmation. The black dressed ninja nod was enough for me to traced a circle big enough through the glass with the cutter, once I've done that Yuko's countdown played in.

"Ten"

"Nine"

"Eight"

"Seven"

"Six"

"Five"

"Four"

"Three"

"Two"

"One"


"Security breakdown: starts! You have ten minutes until it goes on again." hissed Yuko as the sound of furious typing rustled on the line, Ume approached us quickly.

"Coast clear, hopefully." she informed. Noro curled a smile she leaned in to the hole I made earlier.

"Let's roll." she winked before sliding herself in.

@Yuki88: Hahaha, I guess so. School has taken most of my time lately  and it was quite worthed I think since I got a perfect score in the latest chemistry test *yeay* and eventually was chosen as a back up for the district representative for the upcoming national English Debate Competition *another yeay*.
Anyway, yes Yuko is the insane genius. I think about how Yuko was often praised for her multiple talents that she has, so it kinda inspire me to make her as multi talented character too.. About Natsumi's next fate, all I can say is that her fate will be in Kiyoto's hand.

Rival Forever?
Chapter 10 (Part 3)
[/size]


After snuggling our self into the hole, we found our self standing on the attic of the building. The sound of the party bellow was loud enough to conceal our footsteps upon approaching a wooden trap door.

"Coast clear. The corridor bellow you should be empty since no one is in the sight of the security camera." said Yuko through the earpiece. I carefully pull the trap door open and jump down into the corridor. The sound of my leather boots landing on the iron floor was soft yet still made me winched, I turned 360 degrees of my surroundings and found it all empty.

"Clear." I whispered to double check before the other two jumped down. "Yuko, is there anyone on this floor?"

"Should be not since I've sneakily mess up their patrol schedule. Natsumi, go straight forward and turn to the next right turn where there should be a gate there. I've unlock the access there but hurry before it closes by itself!"

"Got it!" I signaled Noro and Ume to follow me into the directions Yuko gave me. After a few minutes later we managed to approach a big heavy vault door with equipped with security coding lock. Noro stepped forward and pull out her device, she started typing codes into it after plugging in a cable connected to the lock. With a few seconds of rustling it opens.

"Bingo~" said Noro happily before opening the vault door. But suddenly a red light jets out towards her face where she peeks behind the door, she managed to dodge it and the light jets to the wall behind. Noro cursed, "Backup Infrared sensor, as expected of this place."she carefully avoided the infrared light and open the door wider before stepping in.

I carefully slipped in and amazed how big the vault door was hiding behind it, a long corridor with many displays along the side. From necklaces with jewels and luxurious stone to a crown in velvet embroidered with precious goods. In the end of the corridor, a display was standing gracefully and elegantly as if it was the main star of the room and I can see the gleaming red to where I'm standing.

"Wait." said Ume before any of us started walking towards it. She produced a bottle of baby powder from her pack and pour some on her palm, she avoided my questioning gaze and blew the powder towards the corridor. To my surprise, the powder that were flying through the air stopped mid way and formed bits of strings in the air, Ume blew more and more strings showed up, forming webs of string on the corridor.

"Back up invisible infra red.." she murmured in a pleasing tone, I can tell she likes it judging from the small stretches she's doing as she stare at it.

"Crap, I hate this thing.." growled Noro as she joined to stretch too. "How come Yuka got the easier bit?~" complained her.

"Because these are your speciallity, Noro.." said a new voice in the earpiece. I smiled hearing the voice and I was sure that Ume was happy too hearing her girlfriend on the line. "Now, the ceremony is about to start and from what I'm seeing, the security haven't notice the alarm issues yet. So please hurry up!" she whispered in the earpiece.

"Yuka, is everything alright?" I asked her. "Guerrimo's with you?"

"He's getting a drink now and meeting with his colleagues, but Comeback is near me. So I can't talk much Natsumi.." she whispered back.

"Yuka," spoke Ume suddenly, "just be careful there.." she said. I imagined Yuka smiling by herself a little since there was a pause after Ume's words roamed through the network.

"You too..." she replied. "All of you.. I'll be listening~" she said before cutting the connection. I stared at Ume with a smirk, ready to tease her. But when I saw the look on her face, my smirk faded. The midget's expression was worried as if something bed was going to happen.

"Ume, you're okay?" I asked her carefully. She winched as if she just came back to Earth and shook her head.

"I'm fine." she replied shortly but enough for me to detect a tinge of worry in her tone. "Come on Noro, Natsumi you stay here and guard the door." I nodded and watched the two in action. They zigzagged  the strings in the air expertly, curling their body through narrow openings, rolled swiftly on floor without touching the strings, and stopped once in a moment to blow more powder before they reached the target.

"Ume got the highest score in gymnastic class back there." said Yuko through. "Noro and I was the second."

"I can see that well.." I commented as I watch them fiddling with the display. Suddenly, my ear caught a noise behind. I turned and pull out El-Drago from it's steath, I stood there as I narrowed my eyes to the empty scene. "Yuko, is there anyone near us?"

"Holy shit.." Yuko swore, "Natsumi, a virus just attacked my computer!!"

"What??!!" I said loudly. God, right now??

"I can't..." the sound of rustling keyboard played in, "I can't break it!!" yelled Yuko panicked. I glanced behind and saw Ume and Noro's face of horror after hearing Yuko's announcement. I can see the gleaming red target in Noro's hand already. I signaled them to hurry back before feeling a gush of hot wind past me, I caught the sight of it and watch the tiny object crashed into one of the display glass and triggered the alarm.

I was about to yell some swearing before eventually got cut off by an unexpected attack from the door. I raised my sword and successfully blocked the attack then found my self staring at a pair of brown eyes with my sword crosses with another between them. I kicked the figure and it manage to dodge it gracefully and jumped back towards the vault.

I took a quick look at the figure, dressed in black, she was tall, slender with perfect model face framed with short brown hair and a curved sword in her hand. I noticed she wasn't alone, two other figure was standing behind her with one holding a gun in her hand. The one holding the gun was short, shorter than Ume to be precise, dressed in black along with a tall hat sat on top of her brown hair flowing hair. The other figure was also slim but about as tall as I am, brown hair and a simple black dress, the look on her face was triumphal.

"You know Noro, you're not the only ones that has an eye on that jewel.." said the triumphal face in a sweet tone. Noro who stood beside me growled lowly.

"Sato Yukari.." gritted Noro, "What are you doing here?"

"Oh don't worry, we're just on a mission here." she replied "How about you? Having a little flashback here, Noro?" she said sharply sweet. Noro was taken back by the last word as if she just punched her straight on the perfect spot.

"You.." growled Noro. I never seen the calm Noro goes berserk like that before, she was growling and I could tell she's going to blow up soon. But before Noro can start, Ume stopped her.

"Not here." she eyed the three new companies dangerously. "We're on a mission too involving this object. Therefore, we have the right to object any types of action that will cause failure to this mission."

"That's a pity.." spoke the short one. "But I'm getting it." she said with a flash of movement. My eyes was too slow to see her movement and the next second I knew was both midget has already standing in a different position than seconds ago. "Umeda Ayaka, still trying hard to control your power?" she smirked. Ume stared much more dangerously in reply at the midget. She was biting her lips and her eyes had turned purple again.

I heard footsteps coming closer as well some yelling in English, I could tell the security guards are coming and staying here would be a bad idea. I don't need for the other three to agree, so quickly pulled out a smoke bomb out of my pocket and threw it to the first guard in sight. Soon, the room was filled with smokes as I ran back to the attic followed by the other two. Once arriving at the hole at the glass roof, another sword attack and a smirk welcomed me which I managed to block it with El-Draco again.

"You really like surprises, don't you?" I complained at the smirking girl as I pushed hard on her.

"Pretty much.." she answered in a sadistic tone before jumping back to where her companies standing. "Now, give us the stone." she said dangerously.

"Thank God I brought you both here.." sighed Noro before she threw a knife towards Yukari. The girl dodged it and welcomed Noro's punch with and opened palm.

"My, my, my.. What kind of a ninja are you? The ones who can't keep her nerve down?" asked Yukari in a mocking tone. Noro growled and pulled out another knife and chased Yukari who jumped to the next buildings.

"Oii, Noro!!" yelled Ume, she was about to chase the ninja before her path was blocked by the model in black.

"Stay out of this!" said Ume trying to move past her. But the model just swiftly followed Ume's movement until she was completely unable to move anywhere. Pissed, Ume pulled out her gun. "Get out of my way, Mariko."

"Sure, after we got that stone." replied the smirking model before diving in to dodge Ume's bullet. As she dived, her sword made a screeching sound as she dragged it on the floor towards Ume's legs, but the midget just jump over it and aimed a flying kick towards her opponent. I can see her eyes were flickering purple now..

"She has improved.." compliment a voice next to me. I saw the other midget standing there as she watch the uneven fight of heights in front of her, the look on her face was pleased but in the same time she seemed quite cautious. When she noticed that I was watching her, she jolted up a little as if she just remember that I was beside her. "Ah, you must be Matsubara Natsumi aren't you?" she asked pleasantly. "My, my.. So the news of new member of Team K turned out to be true, eh?"

"Yes, I am Matsubara Natsumi." I replied coldly. The look on her eyes and the way she spoke was quite an opposite if I were to judge, her voice was friendly but the eyes weren't. Her eyes were filled with.. Hunger

"Well nice to finally meet you."she grinned. She put her gun into her pocket and pulled out a silver rod with a heavy edge on the end. "Mariko seems to be taking care of the jewel. It's a pity, I missed holding expensive stone like that.."

"Don't underestimate her, Midget." I said sharply. I can see a nerve on her forehead and the sound of "tsk" produced from her lips, I can tell she's about as pissed as Ume when it comes talking about heights.

Her cheek blushed red, "Dare to call your senpai a midget?!" she said out loud. I can tell she's gonna blow up soon, so I just gave her my best angelic smile that I have.

"Yes."

She swing her metal rod to my head that I managed to dodge before welcoming an attack from her heels towards my stomach. So far her attack hasn't got me at all but I can feel an unusual power each time she swing that rod, like flickering red auras coming out of the rod. When it hit my shoulder, I winched and cried out. I used to receive a lot of hit from metals like that but this time was a hundred times worse than that, other than the strong force, the rod was molten hot as if it was on fire. When it hit me, I felt like my bone crackled and burned at the same moment.

"Natsumi!!"yelled Ume noticing my condition, she was about to approach me when Mariko blocked her way again.

"Let Minami have fun, Umeda~" said Mariko with a smirk before attacking Ume again.

 I staggered back and gripped my injured shoulder, I looked at the spot where the rod managed to hit me. The place where the black fabric supposed to be on my shoulder was scorched and smoking but no hole at all. I gripped on my sword and managed to parried her hit towards my head before she pulled out her dagger to my chin. I froze and cursed, her dagger's point punctured a little of my part of my skin on my neck, making a little tinge of pain that was way better than my shoulder. This time she smiled angelically and moved her face to my right ear.

"You know, you're quite skilled as a swordman and a fine lady.." she said seductively. My eyes widened hearing the sudden tone, it was as if Meetan speaking to me for the first time. I can feel her warm breath on the side of my face as her dagger still close to my neck, and with a quick move she moved her face to my neck. I gasped as I felt something wet over the little hole where the dagger punctured, unstintingly making me moan in pleasure. "My, my.. You're delicious too~"

"Minami, if Atsuko knows..." called out Mariko nearby.

"Who cares..?" said Minami as she swift back to my ear. I groaned as I feel the soft lips on my ear and nibbling it. "I have one thing to say more though to you..."she whispered. I can feel her warm breath again before she took a deep breath.

"DON'T EVER CALL ME A MIDGET!!" she yelled to my ear all the sudden. My ear popped like crazy as the loud yell went through my ears, I was black out for a moment and paralyzed. I tried to open my eyes and it was fuzzy, my right ear was hearing strange "singg" noise.

I shook my head and saw the Midget who just defeated me standing, her metal rod was pointed under my cheek where the dagger was a few moments ago. My shoulder is still hurting like hell as I tried to move it.

"Don't even think about it." said Minami. "You won't do until that thing is properly healed.."

I sighed, "Well in the mean time, what should I call you?" I asked annoyingly. Minami just grinned in victory and turned her back.

"Takahashi Minami." she said, "But in the mean time I'm Jane. Jane Doe..."

Rival Forever?
Chapter 10 (Part 4)



No one's POV

Not far from the two team's fighting scene, an opened window of a nearby building was opened and revealed a girl sitting in front of her laptop and typing furiously. Despite the cool air of the night, she was sweating especially around her forehead. The computer screen was beeping in red abruptly as she type faster and harder. In the end she threw her hands up in surrender and frustrated, she grabbed the wireless mouse and threw it across the room. It shattered to pieces after the object hit the wall and Oshima Yuko was left with a beeping computer screen and pissed heart.

Those virus... Only one person could do that.. Thought Yuko as she leaned on her chair back to the window and took some breaths as she tried to calm herself down.

"I hope you guys are fine.." she spoke through her earpiece needlessly. She knew the connections were cut by the virus attack and now she's hoping the rest of the crew isn't helpless.

"Sure they aren't since you're all break in to one of the museum with the toughest security system in the world." spoke someone sarcastically from her back. Recognizing the voice instantly, Yuko automatically pulled out her gun and turned her chair around, there standing at the window was the figure she was expecting and Yuko wasn't pleased.

"What are you doing here?" she growled to the figure.

"Our mission, you're not the only ones with a mission similar to us." said the figure simply. As it get closer, the lights started revealing more of the figure's appearance. She was certainly taller then Yuko with short black hair and a pair of glasses, sneering, she took off her glasses and secure it safely.

"I knew it. Only you could do that..." said Yuko still pissed without lowering her gun to the figure. "Team A's Ace, Maeda Atsuko. Ace and also one of the greatest virus creator of all time."

"I appreciate your justification of me, Oshima-san." she sneered. "Despite being easily overcome by my virus, of course."

"Go away Maeda, our mission is much more important than yours!" said Yuko. "I know you brought your whole team here, what have you done with mine?" she gritted.

"Not much, but so far from what I'm hearing, they're getting along well."

"You..." glowered Yuko. She jumped from her chair and aimed a kick at Maeda's stomach, but the girl just side stepped easily and released a spinning kick towards Yuko's head. Nevertheless the Oshima girl dodged it and run for the window, as soon as she stepped on the window frame, she kicked out as powerful as she could and fly to building roof in front of her.

As she flew in the air, she tried to remember a trick that Yuka had taught her once if there is a situation when there isn't any communication available. Yuka said even normal person can do this trick if they're willing to focus hard on it, Yuko clossed her eyes and concentrated as the milliseconds of flying in the air passed.


I hope you guys are fine... Yuko sent her thoughts.

Not so much.. said a new thought sounded like Noro's. You're okay..?

Not really, Maeda is here with her crew. thought Yuko again.

Figures, because we're fighting her crew here. said Noro again.

What happen to Ume and Natsumi?

Ume's fighting with Shinoda I think and Natsumi's facing the Takamidget..

Guys, what's going on?? said an new thought

Yuka!!  thought Yuko.

We've got a new company on the museum roof, can you help us out? asked Noro

I'll try my best, Noro. Comeback is so persistent here, she keeps her eyes on me the whole time.


I have an idea, how about...


Noro's voice was cut off by Yuko's broken concentration. She felt new presence in front of me and instantly blocked the incoming force with her guns, she opened her eyes and saw the familiar twist of lips on Maeda's face as she forced her swords to Yuko's blocked guns. The two of them were staring at each other as they flew in the air.

Yuko threw her guns up, bringing Maeda's swords up also and gave a spinning kick towards Maeda's chest which were received perfectly by Maeda. She was thrown backwards and fell on her back as she slammed on the roof. Yuko landed on her feet in front of the girl and stared across to the Museum's roof blocks away from where she stood.

Even know it was far away, Yuko can see three pairs of figure fighting. And to her worries, she saw a bit of red energy surrounding one of the figure with a tall hat. Her eyes widened realizing what it was...

Oh no... Thought Yuko. Not that power, you Bakamidget!

She ran to the edge of the roof and planned to get to the fighting scene as soon as possible, but her path was suddenly blocked by Maeda.

"You're not going anywhere." she stated. Maeda released a dark aura as the sneer faded away from her face and was replaced with a murderous look. Her swords was gripped tightly as they also released a dark aura, Yuko can suddenly feel the sky above her was rumbling and the scent of electricity filled the air all the sudden.

Yuko gulped but she can't show her weakness towards the Ace. She was aware of what she will have to face soon, and she held out her guns protectively as she stand infront of the Ace.

"You know, maybe Takamina is flirting right now." fished Yuko suddenly. She was aware of the Ace's relationship towards the thief, and the Ace's jealousy on the thief's playboy act at all times as she flirts with trainees by the name of Kuramochi. "Since we have a new member of the Team, I bet Takamina's trying on hitting her."

The Ace blushed all the sudden, her hearts was thumping and constantly thought about the short thief. The news of her relation with the thief of course was known by everyone in the task force including Team K as their juniors.

"Aren't you jelous..?" teased Yuko. The Ace blushed brighter and gripped her sword tightly harder as the dark aura surrounded more.

"Minami~ I heard that." she spoke through her earphone as Yuko felt the sky rumbled more and flashes of electricity started filling the air. Yuko grinned in pleased, she was winning over the ace.

"Minami's flirting again isn't she~..?" teased Yuko again in her best teasing tone. The Ace seemed to be fed up by the situation and released a clap of thunder near her.

"THAT'S IT!!!" Yelled the ace as she rush towards Yuko in rage. Pleased after successfully teased the Ace, Yuko stood against the wrath of the Ace. Waiting and hoping she wouldn't get fried by the Ace's wrath.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Matsubara Natsumi's POV

My shoulder hurts like hell now, and I was in danger of blacking out at any moment. Defeated by a stupid midget with a glowering rod was silly for my mind to take but another thing that I thought was silly was when the midget suddenly shuddered  in horror. Noticing it, Shinoda's yell chimes in.

"Minami, you're aware that Atsuko heard what you just said and did, right?" The midget nodded and suddenly was jolted up by the sound of thunders.

I looked at the sky and saw the night clouds was getting darker especially thick ones above one of the nearby building. I turned my eyes again and saw the midget's expression was in horror and at the same time was blushing. I wondered what relationship does this flirty midget has with that "Atsuko". Lovers?

"Mariko, we have to finish this quickly." said the midget all the sudden. She ran towards Ume and released her red aura again, she swing her rod to Ume's head which Ume dodged again as she welcomed Shinoda's sword attacks.

Um's eyes was still glowering in purple as she kept on her stance, she shot some bullets towards the thief but Shinoda parried every single bullets successfully with her sword. I can see Ume's dissatisfaction on her lips and I knew I was helpless to help her and even to help my self up.

I tried to stand with my hands for support, I can feel my shoulder bones crackling again and forced me to release a painful groan. I was brought on my knees again as I gripped my shoulder tightly. The pain was unbearable and I knew I was close to blacking out if it weren't for my will to stay on.

"Natsumi!" yelled Ume. I saw her running to me, her hair was swaying to sides as she run towards me. Her purple irises are still there but her face looked different than I saw all the time, tired and worried. I saw her standing in front of me and stood with her back towards me, I was aware she was protecting me from an incoming attack from Shinoda's sword. She was too late to put her guards up and received the slash by her shoulder, she limped back as the blood drips down from her scar yet she's still standing.

"You're okay..?" asked Ume as she tilted her head to face me, a bit of blood came out of the side of her mouth as she grinned. Her eyes are still purple but I noticed that another color soon fill in the whites around the iris.

Red.. 

"You dummy..." I gritted as I bear down my own pain, "Why did you do that for??!!" I yelled.

"Cause you're my Nakama, now.." she answered. I froze all the sudden when I saw a tear rolled out her eyes, I noticed again it wasn't a normal tear, it was red and thick.

"Ume..." I whispered, ignoring the pain on my shoulder all the sudden and focused on the incoming figure of Takahashi Minami and Shinoda Mariko.

"Last chance, Umeda. Give the stone to us.." said the midget, pointing her rod to Ume.

"Not a chance, Takahashi. I won't give it to you." replied Ume.

"Then I guess it comes to this then..." said Shinoda as she ran for Ume. I opened my mouth to yell but a voice in my mind froze me, it was annoyingly musical.

Close your eyes Natsumi..

I obeyed the voice and heard the voice spoke again,

Release...

I felt a gush of hot wind hit my face all the sudden and suffocate me for a moment. I remembered this experience once in my dream and when I open my eyes to confirm my deduction, a dark winged figure was standing where Ume was before and was gripping Shinoda's blade with it's clawed hand.

"Tsk.. You're playing a nasty game, Umeda." said Shinoda in a murderous aura. She spin her leg and kicked the claw hand, to my surprise the claw hand broke off and fell on the ground.

Shocked, I screamed.

"Ume!!!"

Post by: Cometerz48 on October 14, 2013, 12:30:15 PM
@Yuki88: No worries. Yeah, I suppose the rivalry of Team A and K really had something to do with their past. I was inspired by some footage how the original team A which was created by the first gen was unhappy when the second gen (team K) was to be held, since then I had a good amount of thinking that I should include this into the fic. Ume's tranformation has got to do with her seals and (probably) the next side story I'm going to write soon..


WARNING: SPOILER FOR CHAPTER 10 - PART 5 IS HERE!


"OH NO, YOU DON'T MIDGET!!"

"Stay back.."

"Been a long time since I have a chance to kill anyone.."

"This place is going to blow up.."

Author's voice chimes in: What really happened to Ume and what exactly she is?? Who's going to kill who?? What happened to Acchan?? What's going to happen next?? All will be answered in the next chapter! Otanoshimini~

Rival Forever?
Chapter 10 - Part 5



Oshima Yuko's POV


Despite my lack of super natural powers, I still can sense things when they suddenly gone wrong.

Fighting Maeda Atsuko took most of my energy away already, mostly from dodging her swords attacks. I know she wasn't called as an ace for nothing. She was younger than me and yet her hacking abilities are not something that I could underestimate, also her sword fighting skill are top notch in the whole task force.

But that wasn't the only thing she has. Her special power was her ability to summon lightning and controlled it in her own will, she could summon it out of thin air and even in a nice weather. As I was carefully dodging her attacks, I could see sparks of electricity were flickering on her swords. She must had use her power to coat her swords with pure electricity.

If she got you, you're doom Yuko.. said my thoughts as I did a back flip to avoid an incoming lightning from Maeda. I realized that I was at the wrong side of the situation, fighting a lightning elemental on a roof instead of the safe ground bellow. I knew if I jumped down, I wouldn't have time to reunite with the others.

Suddenly I could feel a big tug on my chest and the next thing I heard was,

"Ume!!"

I turned to the source of the voice and found the roof where I saw the others earlier was covered in a familiar thick dark mist. My eyes bulged in horror as flashbacks of events came across my mind once again..

No way.. It weren't suppose to happen!!

"Maeda," I spoke and stopped my movement without hesitation. Maeda also stopped and looked at the same direction as I was before, her face was probably in the same horror as I am. "I don't care if you're going to kill me here. But you've got to help us on this.. You know what will.."

"Yes of course I know what will happen." butted Maeda. "Just this once, Oshima. I will help you guys.."

"Thanks, I..."

"Don't think that we're in truce forever, Oshima. Just this once I will go truce for all of you." said Maeda before jumping towards the dirrection of the dark mist. I smiled and followed her anxiously as I prayed that it wouldn't be like what it was a few months ago..

"Oshima," said Maeda

"Yeah?"

"You guys should've kill her that day.."

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Matsubara Natsumi's POV


My voice was loud for sure, loud enough for the figure to turned it's face towards me. I froze and held my breath when I saw it's face. Instead of Ume's eyes, it was just red glowing large irises with no other facial organs. It was as if it's wearing a mask with a few dark cracks on it and glowing red eyes. It's clothes were torn up and it's wings were dark. The arm where the claw were before was sizzling and to my surprise it suddenly grew back, the piece where Shinoda kicked earlier had disappeared from the floor.

Is that Ume...?

Yes it is her.. said a voice, the same voice that teased me earlier. I looked around to see who's voice was that, but no one was around.

Who...

I am your new partner, Matsubara Natsumi. And I think you and I should have a talk face to face now...

Wha..? As if someone just switched the lights off, my eyes goes dark. And when it was back on, I wasn't there anymore. I found my self staring at the exact twenty foot tall red dragon I saw back in my dream.

Greetings, Matsubara Natsumi. I believe you have seen me before have you..?

"WHOAA!!!" I yelped.

Apparently I didn't leave a good impression did I..? I nodded furiously, since when a twenty foot tall dragon that burned the whole AKB S.Q.U.A.D building left a good impression?

"You're the same dragon that burned down the building.." I spoke carefully.

Yes, I am. I was uncontrollable that time, as you can see I am one of the ancient beast of the world and humans came before my era; the era of dragons. They used us to do horrible things and in the end we were hunted down for prides. I was one of the last survivors of the dragons and was captured by the Miyazawa clan..

"Sae's family..."

Yes. They sealed me into one of their weapons and it was painful, a complete torture of hell to be extracted from my body into the weapon. I was locked away for many generations until one day, one of the Miyazawa successor decided to re-apply the sealing magic after being abandoned for many years. I took my chance and was finding my self in complete outrage as soon I was out of my sackle, I was on rampage and destroyed so many until the successor gave his last power to seal me back into the weapon. I was back in my torturous state until I felt you..

"You what??"

I felt you Matsubara Natsumi. Years ago, the early humans were friendly to the dragons and we leave together in peace and harmony. Often, special humans formed some kind of bond with dragons and an ancient contract was made between them.

"Does that mean that I'm..."

Yes. The fate has chosen you for me, Matsubara. We're created for each other, partner to be exact.

"Eueh, does that mean that I have to make out with you?" I asked sloppily. The dragon released a vaguely sound like chuckling.

No. What I mean by partner is that we're going to be a team, I will be your companion in fights that will be played out in the future. I will give you all my strength and all my dedication for you.

"What if I refused?"

What chances you have against the creature you saw earlier? asked the dragon back.

"Ume..?"

I've been reading your head since you touched my sword, Matsubara Natsumi. I know that brat shared her flashback with you on the day I was rampaging..

"Why were you rampaging anyway? You killed a lot of people you know that?!"

Someone was attempting to use me. Dragons will get anxious when a sudden stranger tried to make a connection with them..

"Aren't I'm a stranger?"

You are physically, but mentally we've already knew each other. It is just a matter of time..

"Fine.. Back to Ume..?"

Right. As I was saying I knew you saw my rampage before and do you think you can start connecting it?

"Hang on..." I turned my brain on quickly. I remembered the last ones that was in the fire was Yuka, Noro and Ume and they were saying something not to overdo..

"Ume fought you." I guessed. "What ever happened, you were sealed back in then. It means that you and her has about the same strength." I simplified.

Correct. Yes, it has been a long time since I fought a creature like her. I was surprised that a creature like that still live on Earth..

"What is she?"

We dragons ad humans do not speak it's name. They are savage creatures and unforgivable to us, we used to hunt them together with humans and making sure they die before leaving it's corpse.

I didn't response to that. I kept thinking about what the dragon had said, it was impossible right? Ume, the short midget that saved me from death... The one that took the bloody slash for me..

I know what you are thinking. Time is running out soon and we do not have much time, are you willing to make a contract with me?

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Takahashi Minami's POV


I, Takahashi Minami aka Jane Doe, the captain of Team A, solemnly swear to finish this mission successfully.

Not literally making it worse..



It wasn't until what I saw on the darkest day of AKB S.Q.U.A.D appeared again in front of my eyes, I knew this situation has to be quickly finished. The creature's hair was swept by the wind, revealing it's masked face and it's glowing red eyes. Matsubara was frozen behind it and was helpless thanks to my attacks. She yelled to Umeda which then the creature turned it's face from me to her, the claw that Mariko kicked earlier has reformed and it was ready to deliver it's deadly strike towards her..

I knew that I have no choice to do this. I concentrated my energy into my rod, putting as much until it I can feel my weapon's heart beat.

"Minami.." said Mariko astronished. "You shouldn't.."

"What choice do we have Mariko?" I asked without looking at her.

Wake up, Koenku!! I felt another surge of energy rushed to me, covering me in a thick flame aura. I jumped towards the creature's back and raised my rod, attempting to release my maximum surge...

"OH NO, YOU DON'T MIDGET!!"

Instead of hitting the creature, I found my rod clashed into Oshima Yuko's guns that she crossed in front of her. She was defending the creature!

Peeking through her back, I saw Acchan standing in front of Matsubara with her swords raised. She was flawless in my eyes of course, even if she wasn't her true self there. Such dark expression can creep anyone out but not for me..

"Acchan, I..."

"Save it for later Minami, when this is over.." snapped Acchan. "I'll make sure you got your punishment." she added with a creepy grin plastered on her face. I gulped, I knew I'm doom after this..

"Hey, can we save the chit chat later, midget?" asked Oshima. I glared at her.

"Stop calling me midget, Oshima! Aren't you a midget too?"

"But at least you're shorter than me, Takamina."

"Only by a few inches!"

"Still, it means I'm taller than you."

"Would both of you midget, shut up?" said Mariko.

"Don't interfere and don't call me midget!!" yelled me and Yuko. We both shut our mouth when we saw Mariko's deathly glare.

"Guys.." said Acchan. I turned back to Acchan and saw her already in combat with the creature. She shot a lightning towards the creature which it quickly dodged and swiped it's claw towards her in an amazing speed. Mariko then run towards them and joined the combat after she gave us each a look.

"Oshima, you should get Matsubara out of here." I said. Oshima nodded and dashed towards Matsubara who was already blacked out. Just as she was about to carry her, Noro Kayo arrived with Yukarin.

"Don't think this is over, Sato.." growled Noro before she ran to help Oshima. Yukarin just flashed her smug face before dashing towards me.

"How's the hell did this happen?" she asked.

"Apparently her seal seems like it wasn't tightened properly.." I answered. I gritted my teeth when the creature suddenly produced a ball of fire and threw it towards Acchan.

"Acchan!!!" I yelled and dashed in a lightning speed. I stood in front of her and held out my rod just a few moments before the fireball was getting closer...

"Koenku!!" I yelled and produced a burst of flame from my rod. It collided with the fireball and created a massive explosion, it was so strong that we were both thrown back into another building's roof. I wasn't prepared and neither was Acchan, we landed on the roof on our back.

"Ouch..." I moaned, I knew my back was hurting now..

"Ah.. Minami.." said Acchan beside me. "You're okay?"

"Yep.." I said as I tried to stand up. Ouch, how painful my back was...

"No you're not." said Acchan curtly. She crawled next to me and put her hands on my back, I can feel her palms soothed my back slowly.

"So good, Acchan.." I whimpered in relieve. "Glad that you were in the medics department before.."

"That should do for now.." she said. "I'll do it again later. But that back need to mend a few minutes before you can stand back up.. So for now," she edged close to my face and landed a kiss on my forehead. "Stay back.."

"But.."

"No buts!!" she yelled before jumping back to the other rooftop. I just sighed helplessly as I tried to straightened my back carefully.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Shinoda Mariko's POV

As soon as the explosion took it's place, I quickly took my chance. I slashed down the creature's back and sliced one of it's wings. It screeched loudly, so loud that it made my ears popped. I squinted my eyes and did a back flip, kicked the creature in the head with my heel and did another back flip to dodge an incoming fireball. I saw the sliced wing on the ground, it's black feathers were tainted with blood.

"Come on Umeda. I know you're in there, why the hell did you released that?!" I yelled before dashing towards her. As I dashed, I willed my self to be covered in my silver colored aura. I tugged my sword and filled it with energy, feeling another full course energy rushing in to my body.

"Now!!" I yelled. My body constantly reacted in a super speed, glowering in silver aura I encounter the creature's strike and giving a few slashes from my self. Willing my self not to overdo, I punched the creature hard in the stomach making it thrown back a few feet.

"Nice move." said Oshima. I panted and plastered my sadistic smile towards her. "As expected of an ex-demon hunter."

"Well, duh." I replied, but my smile quickly faded when I started to realize the new happenings. The creature screeched again in agony and this time it was glowering in red.

"The stone!!" exclaimed Yukarin. I cursed, forgetting about the stone.

The Pigeon blood has an unknown power, but mostly connected to chaos. It was rumored as the source of chaos back in the World War I where many soldiers died from mysterious disease and rumored to be controlling Adolf Hitler back in World War II...

"F*ck.. If that thing can control Adolf Hitler then I suppose..." My voice was cut off by an extreme blow to my stomach, it was blurry and I can felt my ribs cracked as the blow send me flying back.

"Mariko!!!" I vaguely heard Yukarin yelled my name, I felt a hand caught my body before it send me back to far. I felt blood filling my mouth and my stomach was in an incredible pain that I couldn't release my agony, I coughed and spewed all the blood in my mouth. I look down to see my stomach and saw a huge claw mark flowing my own blood.

"Mariko, hang in there!!!" yelled Yukarin. She lay me down on the cold floor, I can see tears formed in her eyes as she pushed down the blood. Even know the pain was unbearable, it was quite enjoyable to see Yukarin's rare expression. I couldn't help not to grin at her.

"Yukarin is cryin.." I chanted slowly, teasing her.

"Shut up you sadistic demon!!" she yelled as she kept on pushing. "You're dying and you still have the guts to tease me?!" I grinned before took another look at the creature that is now fighting with Oshima.

"F*ck you, Umeda.." I cursed before my eyelids closed by itself..

 Noro Kayo's POV

"Oi, Natsumi!! Wake up!!" I yelled to the blacked out figure, still she didn't response at all to my yelling. I checked her pulse, still beating.

Well, at least you're alive...

I glanced at Yuko who was now fighting what's meant to be Ume, I saw Yuko shooting her bullets and dodged ferocious attacks from Ume. My memories flashed back to the day when I saw the similar creature back then..

*Flashback*

"Don't over do it." said Yuka helplessly.

"Let's see about that.." said Ume before suddenly strange mist appeared and surrounded her.

I glanced to Yuka in confused before finally the mist revealed my curiosity. A gust of wind swept hard before finally something stepped out of the mist.

A humanoid creature stepped out, it's hair was red blood with large pair of black wings. It's face was covered in some sort of mask with only a pair of glowering red eyes, it has one large claw with talons razor sharp..

"Kayo-chan, let go of the chain." spoke Yuka as the creature walked closer to where me and the dragons were standing.

"But.."

"Do it. Umechan can handle it.."said Yuka assuring me, I nodded and dissaparate  next to Yuka.

"What happens now..?" I asked the younger girl next to me. She didn't answer, instead the dragon's screech answered it as the humanoid's claw dug deep into the dragon's eyes.

"What the..." I cursed. It wasn't like what I was expecting, the humanoid dug deep into the dragon's eyes until it crushed the dragon's eyeballs in it's socket. I was mortified with such scene but it wasn't over...

*Flashback end*


I saw Yukari kneeling next to the wounded Shinoda and screaming her name, she must've either blacked out or in comma thanks to that blow. Still it seems like just small comparing to the dragon's fate that night. What I couldn't believe was the fact that creature there fighting Yuko was Ume..

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

No one's POV

Yuko was struggling to keep up with the pace now, she have fighting with the new upgraded creature for almost ten minutes in her best speed. She shoot more of her bullets to it's chest but quickly got deflected away by the talons.

"Shit..." cursed Yuko. She then rushed to the creature in her other shot of her speed and curled her fist, when she had the chance she punched out the creature's face with her power. "Wake up, you damn it!!" she yelled as she successfully hit the creature in the face.

Yuko's fist felt like she just hit a solid concrete but nevertheless she can also feel the mask cracked a little from her punch. She smiled in pleased before she jumped back. Her fist is in agony and possibly she's the only one good enough to fight for now, she shook off her pain. But before she could start attacking again, the creature already raised it's talons which were now hovering over Yuko's head.

I'm doom... she thought. Just as it about to strike down, another claw stopped it.

"Been a long time since I have a chance to kill anyone.."

Yuko looked up and saw Comeback standing in front of her with it's claw gripping to the talons. Not long after that, shots of chains rained down on the creature.

"Chain Technique #3: Hell's Shackle!" yelled Sanshoku. The chains then quickly tightened the creature and bind it's movements, which the creature then screech in wild and shot multiple fireballs blindly.

"Earth's Technique#5: Earth's shield!" yelled Mariyagi. Suddenly the floor shot a wall of earth before it clashed with the fireballs and was burned down.

Yuko stared at the new company before suddenly realized that Comeback turned to her and lashed out her claw. Yuko dodged it smoothly and jumped back.

"Change of plan, Guerrimo wants you all dead." she grinned. My eyes widened as I welcomed two attacks from the newcomer. One from Comeback and another from Mariyagi.

"Where's Yuka, you bitch?!" Yelled Yuko.

"Mayuge is taking care of her, mean while..." said Mariyagi but her voice was cut off by a sudden shot of lightning struck her square in the chest. I turned and saw Maeda standing there with her swords out.

"Yagi!! You bitch!!" yelled Comeback rushing to Maeda with her claws but then she stopped all the sudden. "Sanshoku, you heard what boss said. Take her."

"Yes, Comeback." said Sanshoku. Before Yuko could protested, the girl has disparate along with the bounded creature.

"Ume!!!" yelled Yuko. "Give her back you bitch!! Give her and Yuka back!!"

"No chance, Oshima." said Comeback jumping back next to the blacked out Mariyagi. "You all going to die anyway.." she added before she disparate along with her companion.

"You bitc..." suddenly a loud explosion was heard and the building shook hard.

"She set up a bomb bellow!!" yelled Maeda. "This place is going to blow up.."

"As a matter of fact it's already!!!" Yuko yelled back. "Everyone move out of here!!"

Noro and Yukari got the cue and jumped out of the roof, each their wounded friend. Yuko glanced around and saw a glimmering red object laying on the ground a few feet from her.

Masaka... Is that Pigeon Blood?

But then the roof suddenly collapse and bringing the object down below.  Before Yuko could reach out for the object, Maeda Atsuko snatched it quickly and was also falling with the collapsed roof.

"ACCHAN!!!" yelled a voice. A blur of figure shot across and caught the falling Ace as well as jumping into the safety zone.

"Minami.." spoke the Ace as soon as she realized the person who had caught her in bridal style.

"You're okay?" asked Takamina. The Ace nodded slowly, her hands are now holding the Pigeon Blood tightly.

"We're late aren't we?" asked another voice. The couple turned and saw two figure standing behind them, one was Team K's Sato Natsuki while the other one was a long haired woman in a dark mini dress, her long hair was blown by the night wind under the moon lights.

"Nyan-nyan!" yelled Yuko.

The woman smile curtly to the shorter figure, "Hello Yuko. Seems like situations can't get any worse now, eh?"



To Be Continued




I did a drawing of what the creature looks like, sorry for the bad drawing. Mostly inspired by Bleach for the mask ._.
