"Hey, Youzen. How are things up here?" With
those words a figure leaned against the window sill in my
"Ta, Taikobo Suusu!!"
In These Changing
"I can't believe it's really you." I mutter as
I trail my finger's along Suusu's cheek, as though he
were a fragile glass ornament. "You, you're
here." It's all I can manage as I stare at him
"Don't look so closely, it's embarrassing."
Suusu tries to turn away from me but I stop him.
." I whisper like I
don't know any other word's. "
hug him softly and carefully. I hear Suusu sigh and his
arm's return the hug. "Suusu
We stay like that for about an hour or two. I'm just
enjoying the warmth of his body and thanking god or
budda, or any being out there, an alien possibly, that
Suusu is, Taikobo Suusu is, here.
" Suusu open's his mouth after
we just stood there hugging each other. "Sorry to
ruin the mood but um, I'm getting tired of
"Sorry I did not realize it!!" I apologize and
pick Suusu up and take him to the bed.
"Wow, Youzen, wait, um, wait I need to talk with
you!!" Suusu exclaims and gets off the bed and sits
in the chair opposite from it.
" I feel like crying. In all
honesty I was pretty devestated after the fight with
Jyoka. If it weren't for the fact that I felt obligated
to, not that I did not want to, follow in my father's
foot steps, I probably would've gone crazy by now. I
missed Suusu, and I want to feel him near me.
Suusu sighs again and puts his index finger to his
temple. "Look, there's some stuff we need to talk
about before we rush into this. It's not the same as
before." Suusu's eyes look sad as he says that.
"First off, I'm really happy with what you did here.
You've done a really good job governing all the Senninn
and Doushi. Choosing Nendou and Choukei as your sidekicks
was a wise idea. Second of all
.What the hell did
you do with Rikukonban!?" Suusu yells at me and
"I really really really really really really really
x(infinity) liked the way you looked when you had it like
a robe!! Especially in that fight against that what ever
it's name was youkai in Dakki's big Paopei tournament.
You looked sooooooooooooooooooooooo Kakkoii!!"
"Suusu, you really liked Rikukonban on me!" I
ask as I take his hand.
"Of course!! I mean, I wondered what happened when
you customized it to that European one, but I really
really really liked it as a robe on you!! It brought out
your dark charisma!!"
"But after the fight you said that I should restrain
from overusing it. I thought it was because you didn't
"It wasn't that!! You were so
.there were other
people around and you looked so Kakkoii!! I should be the
only one allowed to see you like that!!" Suusu
"Suusu, then I will only wear it when you are
"Really!!" Suusu looks up at me with expectant
eyes. "Really Youzen, you'll do that for me!!"
"Of course Suusu, why wouldn't I?"
So Suusu and I rediscovered our love for each other. My
life is going great, until a few seconds later Suusu
dropped the bombshell.
um, sorry to ruin the mood again
.." Suusu looks at me sadly. "You may
not be able to wear Rikukonban for a while
"Why is that Suusu!!" I demand.
"I've got some stuff I need to do before I can stay
here." He says and looks at me straight into the
eye. "my first obligation is to the human world, not
the Senninn world." I know this is not meant to hurt
me but is just a fact in Suusu's life. "That means
that I have some things I need to, and want to clear up
down there." Suusu takes in a deep breath. "I
am going to make a country for the Kyou tribe."
My eye's are wide open at that statement. This is the
conclusion he has reached then. He will then, stay in the
"It's still in the planning stages, I still need to
consult Buou about the land and all
continues talking. "It will take some time for the
base to be set up, I don't think the country will last
forever, but I want a place where the Kyou people can
call a sanctuary." Suusu stops there for a second
"Why did you stop by here then?" I ask, my
voice wavering. Why did he make me face this truth, the
truth that he would not
. "Why not before I
became the ruler of the Senninnkai, when I still could've
left this place and be with you!" I yell. I know I
am all emotional and that I should calm down but
"I had to wait." Suusu states. "Youzen,
you are Senninn, you are a Youkai. I'm just stating a
fact so don't look at me like that. I'm sorry but I don't
need you in the country I want to make."
." I stare
at him in disbelief. "Then
"I don't know if I will get married and have a heir
that has my blood, or adopt an heir. Either way, I will
in a sense, be betraying you." Suusu looks away from
me in that statement.
"Suusu." I mutter his name, it's all I can do
"But, if it isn't too much to ask
can you wait
for me?" Suusu asks.
"I don't know when it will be that I feel I could
leave the country with out regrets. But I promise, I'll
come back here when it's all over. So can you.."
"So I can't use Rikukonban till you're satisfied
with your own country?" I ask and breathe out.
"Oh well, I guess I could put it up in the museum
for awhile longer then."
" Suusu looks at me and I
"You honestly thought I wouldn't wait for you?"
I ask a little annoyed. "Suusu, please have some
faith in me."
" Suusu just stares at me
"When everything is done, you're returning
right?" I ask and Suusu looks at me and smiles and
"This time, I'll work as your assistant." He
"One that's always sleeping?" I ask and Suusu
pouts. "I'm joking Suusu. In fact, maybe when you
return you should rule and I will assist you." I
"The only reason I'm ruling is because I absolutely
refused to work under Nendou-sama."
.why? You yourself admitted he's strong and
"Because Suusu, you're the only one I bow down to.
Ever since that day
.when I met you."
." Suusu takes a
strand of my hair and kisses it.
"Suusu, I'll wait, so please, return here."
..just, wait." Suusu
start's to cry and I hug him.
Suusu, my precious Suusu
"I need to get going
" Suusu mutters as he
sits up in the bed and reaches for his clothes. I stop
"Don't tell anyone I was here." Suusu pleads.
"I only wanted to tell you I was alive."
.you're not even telling Fugenn-sama?" I
ask and Suusu shakes his head.
"It's a surprise for everyone. I first wasn't even
going to come here and tell you. Just create the country
and then die. But I couldn't do that without telling
letting you know that although I'll betray you
for awhile I'd return." Suusu admits.
.." I place a kiss on
his neck and down his back, leaving a trail of kisses.
"Good luck." I manage to smile and make him
..thanks." Suusu smiles and stands up
and quickly dresses. "I'll
.see you in a couple
of years." He says and goes to the window sill.
"Wait." I stop him and walkover to the chest in
my room. "I was going to wait till you got back for
good to give you this but.
" I hesitate.
"What is it?" Suusu asks with his smile.
"Um, if you don't like it you're more than welcome
to toss it. I just was hoping that since now that you are
divoced from Jyoka and all, and I am your boy-friend that
"What is it?" Suusu asks again, this time more
" I show him a small velvet box and
..serious?" Suusu asks as he looks into
um, I know that you want to keep the
possibility of an heir with your blood but I was sort of
hoping that, I know I should've waited but I
"Youzen I love you!!" Suusu screams and tackles
me. I come in contact with the ground only to realize
that Suusu is kissing my face. "I love you, love
you, love you."
Can I take that as a yes?" I
"Yes! Yes! Yes!!!!" Suusu yells and proceeds to
kiss me. Naturally I don't object.
"Can I?" I take his right hand and slip off his
glove as soon as Suusu releases me from the kiss.
"Yes!" Suusu replies enthusiastically. I slip
on the ring that has an amethyst in the shape of a heart
Suusu stayed a little longer than he planned and I was
late to the morning meeting, of course that is a small
thing in my eye now.
'I'll find you a really really nice ring, one that has an
emerald on it.' Suusu told me before he left this
morning. I pray that this is not some cruel trick by
those who are jealous of me. I think I am in seventh
heaven. What ever Choukei-kun or Nendou-sama is saying
goes in one ear and out the other.
I am thinking about the wedding I have to plan for Suusu
and myself. I plan on having a grand one, a great one.
Suusu, I'm already missing you
By the way, what happened to Outenkun and Fukki??
