(35 rose whips! | attack?)

Time:12:59 pm.
Mood: okay.
I have been doing quite well lately. Hiei has stopped by several times to visit, and we've ended up watching movies several times. Things are, for the most part, calmer than they were previously.

Mother is, again, going out of town. I am glad that she is enjoying life with Kazuya so much, even if it does leave me feeling a bit displaced.

I plan to visit the temple soon, probably after she leaves.

Why is it that life becomes complicated when you've decided you'd like it to remain simple?

I'm perfectly content with friendship, and I honestly don't understand why he finds it necessary to complicate things by looking for more.

With any luck, it's just some Koorime hormonal issue that will wrap up on its own soon...

(4 rose whips! | attack?)

Time:4:36 pm.
Mood: thoughtful.
My family went out of town for the weekend and ended up extending their trip. Mother was concerned about my health while she is away, for good reason, but I assured her that I am fine, and that a friend is staying with me. She seemed relieved.

Hiei came to visit last Friday, and he has been staying here since. I'm afraid I didn't give him a decent welcome. However, that is no longer an issue. He forced me to listen to him and, as usual, his words were insightful.

Hiei is correct. I cannot keep living like I have been. I chose to put myself in that situation, knowing what would happen. I refuse to take that as defeat, no matter what.

Time:7:36 pm.
Mood: cold.
*private post*

Things have been blessedly quiet here. I did not leave the house for quite a while after returning home. Mother said nothing about it, but I did not expect her to. She has always been patient with my eccentricities.

More recently, I have spent much time in the garden. The plants are soothing. They are vibrant and full of life. Should anything happen, they will come to my defense. I wish to stay around plants and avoid places where they are not. He is still out there...

The neighbors have asked how I have kept the garden vibrant in the cold, and I have told them nothing of value. Perhaps I should bring some of the garden into the house and let the rest go dormant. It would fend off the questions.

The holidays have come and gone, something of a blur. I did nothing, excusing myself from family activities and ignoring this place. I needn't have, considering that it seems that there was no party. In fact, things have been quiet for a long time, both in the Ningenkai and Makai. While this relieves me, it also makes me anxious. I fear that something is coming to make up for the lull.

I wish to avoid it. At least, for as long as possible...

Time:11:26 pm.
Mood: melancholy.
*Filtered: filter disincludes Sensui, Itsuki, Sniper, Karasu, and Kuronue*

I went home a while back, a few weeks ago, though I have not touched the internet much. Mother was pleased to see me, though she wondered if I wished to stay at home, or if I was planning to move out or stay with friends. I reassured her; that is not the case. I plan to stay for a while. A long while. I enjoy spending time with her in this simple ningen life.

It is good to be home.

I updated the dummy journal for my mother and decided to check here in the process.

There is very little I wish to say...

Subject:And now
Time:3:47 pm.
Mood: determined.
Yuusuke... is dead... He tried, but not as hard as he could have... I am the only one left, and I am to fight Karasu tomorrow. He now has Botan as well...
 
Hinageshi is knocking on my door.

Time:1:11 am.
Mood: determined.
*private post*

Hinageshi came to see if I was alright, as she has with everyone else. I do not believe that she expected that I would turn the tables on her.

She is completely exhausted, emotionally, having taken all of this stress upon herself. It really is not fair to her that she has not been able to vent.

I managed to get her to vent a little, but she does not wish to lay her troubles on other people, though she is feeling the same emotions that we all are--shock, disbelief, grief, anger...

She cried a little and was nearly falling asleep, though she tried to ignore her needs to go check on the others--on Koenma, who is apparently ill, and Juri, who just posted... I am not certain how Keiko and Koto are doing, as they are keeping to themselves. In any case, as there are two beds in this room, I told her to rest. She is asleep now, though restlessly...

The ones I am truly worried about are Shizuru, Yukina, and Botan. Shizuru faced the loss of both her mentor and her brother immediately in... and was taken by Karasu in the following battle. While he dressed her wounds from the battle... I do not trust that he will be benevolent for long...

Yukina also lost her brother in the bloody battle today. Karasu practically tore Hiei apart. He had very little chance... and now Yukina is a captive of Karasu as well.

The demon who is Botan's captor is an unknown factor. I am not certain of her treatment, but the demon's behavior after choosing her was not reassuring...

I battle Yuusuke tomorrow. Judging from Karasu's comment on Yuusuke's last entry... He is using intimidation. If Yuusuke were to go against him, and Karasu did something reminiscent of... Yuusuke would not win. Karasu would certainly do something like that...

I must win. There is no other option if the girls are to be safe. As for the final battle... Whatever it takes. They have suffered too much. If I lose... I die... and they will undoubtably follow shortly after and welcome it.

Yuusuke, I am sorry, but there is no other option. I will defeat you. It is me that Karasu wants.

Mood: numb.
The battle between Hiei and Karasu was short and bloody. Yukina is now the captive of Karasu. Hiei... is dead...

Immediately following was my battle with Jin. He was not himself, and his heart was not in the battle. There was no choice...

Touya spoke to Yuusuke briefly and then announced that he was forfeiting and collapsed, dead. This is... understandable. He had no one left.

Tomorrow... I am to battle Yuusuke...

(3 rose whips! | attack?)

Time:12:53 am.
Mood: restless.
Itsuki and Suzuki are dead. Jin defeated the Meikai demon he battled. He hasn't been seen since Suzuki allowed Yuusuke to defeat him. Keiko and Koto are safe... Botan has been taken captive by the Meikai demon who killed Itsuki.

Juri is taking Suzuki's death hard. There is nothing we can do.

I have seen the tournament schedule for tomorrow, and it appears that Hiei will be battling Karasu in the first battle. I am to battle Jin next... The final battle of the day is Yuusuke versus Touya.

I do not know what the outcome of the battles will be. I... am determined not to lose mine.

Time:7:42 pm.
Mood: blank.
Rinku was killed in the first battle, against Karasu. The battle was short and disturbing. Jin disappeared shortly after the match, which is unsurprising.

Karasu, however, has possession of Shizuru. To be truthful, I am almost glad that Kuwabara is not alive to know that this is the price of his loss.

After Rinku was removed from the arena, I battled Kuronue. It was a fierce battle, but he conceded eventually, when there was no other option. With his death, the part of my life shared with him is closed. I will not revisit it.

In my meditations earlier, I came to a realization. His death now is not my fault. The Meikai is to blame. He conceded and therefore his blood is on their hands, not mine. I will think no more on the subject.

I chose to save Hinageshi. She has taken some charge of my wounds. She refused to allow me to treat her injuries before mine were dressed. It appears that the battle in the coffee shop was quite fierce, judging from her wounds. She mentioned that Shizuru was still fighting when she blacked out. Thus, if she does need any medical attention...

We have not seen who Jin and Itsuki are to battle tomorrow, for they are minions of the Meikai. However... Yuusuke is to battle Suzuki, as the final battle in the first round...

Hinageshi just returned from the onsen. She has brought Shizuru with her to pick up some clothing. Surprising...

Mood: numb.
Kuwabara is dead, as is Shishiwakamaru.

We did not know until it was too late that losing meant death. Shishiwakamaru was the first victim. It was only after he had died that the Meikai informed us of this fact. Touya was the winner of that battle... Friends killing friends. Touya is taking it hard, which is expected, considering the circumstances, as are the others. It seems that Jin is upset as well, as he apparently has not left his room since the battle.

The battle immediately following was Hiei against Kuwabara. I knew what the outcome would be; no other was possible, though Kuwabara put up a good fight before he lost. I am not sure how Hiei feels about the battle, but Shizuru will be devastated, I daresay, despite her past indifference. I took the clothing he brought for Shizuru from his room, as well as the other things he had. I doubt the hotel would do anything besides throw them out. When this is over, I will make sure Shizuru gets them.

Two of the girls are safe--Juri and Yukina. Both were injured in the battle that apparently took place at the coffee shop, but neither of them have spoken of what happened. I would rather not inquire of them, as they have been through enough.

We have received word of tomorrow's battles. First, Rinku is to battle Karasu. I will say nothing now of that battle, as I realize what the likely outcome will be. The thought is depressing. Worse, for me, is the battle that follows, when I shall have to battle Kuronue. I do not wish to think about that.

This hotel is apparently known for its baths. I wish I could enjoy them, but I do not wish to run into certain people. It is preferable to meditate anyway.

This has been a rather awful day, and it will only be repeated tomorrow...

Meditation.

Time:3:51 pm.
Mood: busy.
Mother just called. I believe the others are a tad annoyed that our discussion was delayed, but she is my mother. One must keep up appearances.

She told me about this young woman she met on her trip, actually saying that she wished she could invite this "Amaya" woman over for dinner. Apparently, her lesson was not learned with Shizuru.

Her trip is going well, and she inquired about the happenings here. I informed her that everything was good, but that I was going out of town for a while to visit a friend. Despite the fact that I doctored this phone so it will work in Makai, I would prefer not to talk to her during the tournament, considering that there may be problems, so I told her it would probably be out of range.

To my horror, she informed me that she now has a LiveJournal. It is not nearly as much of a shock, considering that I created one specifically for this possibility. She will read about my quite normal adventures around Tokyo, and, while I am away, the countryside and my non-existent friend. I am relieved that I had the foresight to create a dummy journal.

She sounds well. I am glad that the trip is doing her some good. Hopefully, we will be back by the time she is home. Otherwise, I can come up with an excuse.

Now to get back to the discussion. The others broke for a late lunch while I was on the phone. I shall eat later, once this is resolved.

(attack?)

Time:2:22 pm.
Mood: thoughtful.
There was a small lull in the discussion regarding the tournament grounds, and in that time Kuwabara and Jin started arguing over their kittens, among other things. I decided to take a walk to clear my mind, and I was confronted by a minion of the Meikai.

I expected it to attack, but it said it was a messenger. Apparently, the tournament is to be held at the old Ankoku Bujustukai grounds. I was a bit confused for a moment, as the stadium was destroyed, but he specified that he meant the original stadium.

We will have to get there somehow. Hopefully, Yuusuke and Hiei can find a way there, or we may be at a disadvantage. I cannot imagine that Hiei would not come, considering that Yukina is one of those kidnapped.

It appears that Kuwabara and Jin have stopped arguing and arrived at a truce of sorts, thankfully. We must decide how we are going to get to the island.

Time:10:11 pm.
Mood: worried.
I have been informed that the girls have disappeared, and there are signs of a struggle. I am going to join the others in the hunt. This does not bode well at all, especially since it appears that it may be the work of demons. I hope it is not, but I do not believe anyone else could have taken them if they were fighting.

Thankfully, Mother is not due home for another few weeks. Hopefully this will not take that long.

I was hoping to avoid going out today. The stack of packages on my porch was annoying enough. However, we need to find out what is going on...

I arrived at Genkai's rather late. Hinageshi and I checked out the poltergeist. It was not too pleased with that, but at least we know what it is now. Not that it's good news, but at least it is not an unknown factor.

I shall be staying here for the night, since it is obviously rather late.

Mother still has not returned from her latest trip. I am unconcerned, as she calls frequently.

Apparently, my appetite for solitude has enabled me to miss another round of the Soap Opera. Admittedly, this was a little more serious than that, and Shizuru is probably quite upset about the whole fiasco. After all, human women have been taught since the dawn of time that being raped is a filthy thing on the part of the woman--often something only cleansed by a ritual suicide. That practice is, thankfully, no longer in use, but the feeling of being seen as an object certainly would leave one shaken. However, in my opinion, she has been handling it rather well, even taking into account her fluctuating moods.

I read that Juri has apparently been attacked by a spirit. They call it a poltergeist. They have a tendency to attach themselves to teenage girls, as I recall. Perhaps I should go to Genkai's to see if I can assist in any way. After all, the house is empty and clean. There is no need for me to be here.

Time:4:53 am.
Mood: tired.
Hinageshi is fine. She is a tad sore because of her injuries--she is rather bruised up--but she will recover. We managed to find her, using Hiei as a sort of bloodhound. The demons realized that she was a Reikai servant, and they were attempting to use her as a bargaining chip. We quickly banished that notion.

They were rather quickly dispatched. Hinageshi was unconscious, so we took her to Genkai's. Yukina was not able to completely heal her, so, as I said, she is rather bruised. I made some salve for her to put on the bruises, but it may take a while for some of them to heal.

Botan is here now, fussing over her. She was quite frantic with worry. Several people are not aware that she is okay yet.

I hope that Kuwabara plans to go home so his sister does not worry, and also to give her the news, as she spent quite a bit of time looking for Hinageshi. Honestly, with her level of reiki it was shocking that she did not find her, though that could have been disastrous, considering that these youkai had been killing humans no qualms. It is really quite fortunate.

In other news, Mother decided not to get a LiveJournal, which is a relief. She left to go on another trip. It really is good that she is getting out more, and I enjoy the time alone.

(8 rose whips! | attack?)

Time:1:17 am.
Mood: frustrated.
Well, I have compiled all of the information I received from Koenma, and Yuusuke and Kuwabara stopped by for a meeting on what to do about it. We have a tentative plan. I was hoping that Hiei would perhaps bother to stop by, but he has not been seen since the party, which is to be expected, considering that he made a complete ass of himself. He is probably too embarrassed to show his face. In any case, this merely makes more work for us, considering that we need to find him, as his Jagan is a useful tool.

...

And Mother just asked me what I was doing. I explained what LiveJournal is, and she mentioned that she might get one.

Which means that I may have to filter sensitive entries. Lovely... Either that, or I could make a false journal with false entries to send her to... That actually might be doable.
