PostSubject: Hunting: Yanagi    Wed May 09, 2018 3:41 am

“Yanagi, Yanagi where are you Yanagi? Answer me” Alkaid called out her voice full of worry and concern as she ran, chasing after the trail of blood her cousin had left behind. There was a small splotch doted on the ground here and their but they where sporadic and random which prevented her from going full speed less she miss the next one in the dotted line leading her to towards her wayward family member.

She cursed the elders for allowing it to come to this. She hadn’t been the only one checking on the twins so why had they allowed Yui’s body to continue lying in the bed for Yanagi to find. What kind of sick bastard does that? But even more then them she blamed herself for it coming to this. Someone should have been with Yanagi when she woke up to comfort her. To hug her and say they loved her.

What had see been thinking training at a time like that when she should have been at her family member's side. No matter how defective the other clan memebers had treated them Alkaid had always tried her best to be kind to them and yet she had been nowhere to be found when she had been needed the most.

Alkaid wasn’t a sensor but she was a spy. Information gathering was one of her specialist and that included tracking someone she’d marked for ease-dropping or to follow them back to there base of operations.

Yanagi had left the house in a rush, obviously not in a normal state of mind. It was preserve but Alkaid was actually thankful for the fact her cousin hadn’t taken the time to clean her wounds after injuring herself wrecking her room. Without the path of blood to act as guideposts finding her would have been much more difficult.

Alkaid wondered how long she had been running, how long she had been searching calling out for Yanagi? Her throat felt hoarse, her legs like lead and yet she forced herself to solider on. She had a sinking feeling inside her that if she didn’t find her cousin now, she’d lose her forever. Not In the same sense that they had lost Yui but in a spiritual sense where Yanagi would completely sever herself from the rest of the clan.

Out-casting herself the way the sneering senile elders had always hoped for. Those old farts had always treated the two sisters like defects, like black sheep. If Yanagi kept running she wouldn’t put it past them to send hunter nin after her to finish the job, fearing that she would leak their precious genetics to the outside, red eyes or not.

Despite doing everything in her power, Alkaid had failed to save Yui. She was dammed sure she wouldn’t fail Yanagi as well. Someone needed to be there to console her, to heal her wounded soul. Perhaps even to seek vengeance should that be her wish.

To the outside world their biology was considered weird. Conventional medication had no effect on them which is why Alkaid had taken Yui home instead of a the hospital knowing that she would have been turned aside. If anyone knew a way to help it had been the elders and they had not been forthcoming.

A chill ran up Alkaid’s spine as she finally spotted Yanagi off to the side of the same training grounds she had found Yui when she had had collapsed. She was lying in that same ditch, that same spot her arms dripping with blood and face streaked with tears.

She couldn’t have know this was the spot her sister had fallen and yet here she was, as if driven in her blind rage to seek her departed brethren by retracing the last moments Yui had still been conscious. Moments that would forever remain a mystery.

Had she realized what was going to happen to her even as she had fallen into that coma? What had her last thoughts been? Her last words? The fact Alkaid knew none of that and had no way of knowing was endlessly frustrating.

The only one who could have provided answers, the same one who had left Yui for dead had taken them to his grave, stricken by the same plague as her. Maybe their was some justice left in the world after all. If only the plague had taken the elders instead and left poor Yui be.

“Oh my god, there you are Yangai. I was so worried.” sobbed Alkaid sorrowfully as the dam inside her she had despriately trying to hold back finally broke and her eyes where flooded with tears. Running over to her cousin she grabbed a hold of her with a hug and squeezed tightly.

She really should have been cleaning Yanagi’s wounds and binding them. While clan members had a healing factor and would regenerate over time, that wouldn’t save them if they lost too much blood. But Alkaid wasn’t in the proper state of mind to think about that as she clung to her cousin and held her close.

“I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry.” She repeated that word over and over. Sorry she hadn’t found hers sooner. Sorry she hadn’t checked up on them enough. Sorry she had failed her sister. Alkaid had a litany of things to be repentant for, too many to count. But what mattered most was that she was finally here for her cousin even of the rest of the clan bar Tsubaki would have happily abandoned her.
