Gale: Hurry up, you're gonna be late.
Shiori: Ok I'm gone. *hits the sky*
Gale: So Tori, you wanna explain your little crying fit last night? Why were you so upset at the thought of Shiori leaving?
Tori: It's weird, she's only been with us a few days, but I feel like...
Gale: Like what?
Tori: Like... I finally have a mother.
Gale: She said she's searching for something, so it's inevitable that she'll leave. What will you do then?
Tori: The only thing i can do, I guess.
Gale: Which is?
Tori: Wait for her to come back.
Gale: Good answer. For a second there, I thought you were gonna say something like 'Go with her'.
Tori: She would never let me.
Matt: What are you two doing?
Gale: Morning sunshine. We were just talking about what Tori would do if Shiori left.
Matt: *holds up bow and quiver* Where'd Princess go anyway? She forgot these.
Gale: Well she's on a date, so it's unlikely she would need those. And what's with calling her princess?
Matt: It's my nickname for her.
Tori: We figured that out, but why?
Matt: Because she has an air of nobility about her.
Tori: If you say so.
Matt: I did say so. Now c'mon, I think I know where our next job is.
*meanwhile, Shiori arrives at the starting line, where a nervous-looking Bokyomaru is leaning against his bike.*
Shiori: Hey there. Are you lost?
Bokyomaru: *jumps* I was starting to think I was being stood up. And do you always pop out of nowhere?
Shiori: *shrugs* I was taught not to be seen or heard.
Bokyomaru: You've obviously learned well. Hop on, I'll give you the grand tour.
*later that day, the two lean against a chain-link fence.*
Shiori: So are you and Reno still fighting?
Bokyomaru: More or less. But if it makes you feel better he did apologize for messing with me the other night. That's a start right?
Shiori: I guess it's as good a start as any.
*on the other side of the fence, 2 teenagers walking by spot Shiori and Bokyomaru. As they walk over, she immediately senses they're looking for a fight.*
Isamu: Cute pet ya got there. Does it do any tricks?
Shiori: *clenches fist* Yeah, watch me make you disappear.
*as is to restrain her, Bokyomaru holds her arm.*
Bokyomaru: Come on you two, get lost.
Hitoshi: You should get a collar for the little chikushou.
Shiori: *jumps over the fence and starts chasing the two* That's it! I kicked a cop's ass and now I'm gonna kick yours!
Bokyomaru: *watches them run* They can't say I didn't warn them.
Shiori: *running through the streets* Get back here!
Isamu: What are you gonna do?
Shiori: Stop running and you'll find out!
Hitoshi: That means run faster!
Shiori: Oh screw this!
*biting her finger, she quickly draws a transmutation circle and transmutes a stone wall, stopping the two dead in their tracks.*
Hitoshi: Come on, can't we talk this over?
Isamu: If you're gonna eat somebody, eat him!
Shiori: I don't eat junk food.
Hitoshi: I know you're mad right now, but don't you think you're over-reacting just a little?
Shiori: Way wrong answer! *lunges forward and a few seconds later the guy is kocked out cold on the ground.* One down, one to go.
Isamu: You can't go around beating up strangers!
Shiori: You shouldn't have called me a beast.
Isamu: Oh that? I was just joking.
Shiori: Do you see me laughing?
Isamu: Ok, so my sense of humor needs work. I take back everything I said.
Shiori: Too late. *after working off some frustration, she stares down at the unconscious pair.* Ah, I feel better. *before leaving, she draws a circle on the wall and turns it to dust.* If you still think I'm a beast, consider this. I could've shattered this wall with a single blow and left you two under a pile of rocks, but I didn't. *holds left shoulder* You know nothing about me, so don't try to judge me. *turns and runs back to fence*
Bokyomaru: Feeling better Phoenix?
Shiori: *jumps over* Much.
Bokyomaru: *chuckles*
Shiori: Something funny?
Bokyomaru: I was just thinking.
Shiori: About what?
Bokyomaru: You're like a wasp.
Shiori: A wasp?
Bokyomaru: Yeah. You're friendly, but ready to sting if threatened.

Shiori: Huh. I've been called many things, but never that.
Bokyomaru: Well anyway, let's continue the tour. I've saved the best for last.
*driving to the outskirts of the city, the two come to a stop near a wooded area.*
Shiori: I guess we walk from here?
Bokyomaru: Yup. Don't worry, it's not much farther. There's something I really want to show you.
*following an over-grown path, they eventually come to a clearing. In the center is a small lake.*
Shiori: Wow. It's so...peacful. *stands at edge* And the air feels different. So serene.
Bokyomaru: *sits down* Nobody else knows about this place. It's where I come whenever I'm feeling sorry for myself. I call it mizuumi higure.
Shiori: *sits* Lake twilight? Why?
Bokyomaru: That's when it come to life.
Shiori: Comes to life? What does that mean?
Bokyomaru: Just watch.
*looking out at the water, several minutes go by.*
Shiori: You said you come here when you're feeling sorry for yourself. Why would you throw yourself a pity party?
Bokyomaru: I suppose the main reason would be my father.
Shiori: Your father?
Bokyomaru: Yeah...he left when I was a kid.
Shiori: Why did he...I'm sorry, it's none of my business.
Bokyomaru: No, its okay. It was partly my fault..
Shiori: Forgive me but I'm having a hard time believing that.
Bokyomaru: He was always yelling...usually at my mom. Supposedly Reno and me were nothing but a burden. He kept saying they should ditch us and leave town. Mom refused. She told him she wouldn't abadon her sons even if they world was burning around her. So, he gave her a choice: him or us.
Shiori: And she chose you.
Bokyomaru: That's right. The next day he was gone. I figured it would've happened sooner or later.
Shiori: The why do you keep blaming yourself?
Bokyomaru: Because I feel like I'm a failure as a son.
Shiori: *knocks lightly on head* Is that what you think? That your father left because you failed him? 'Cause if that's what you truly believe, then you need a serious reality check. *holding out her hand, a dragonfly lands on the tip of her finger.* You know, people used to tell me that I was a monster just because I was born different from them. And for a long time, I believed them.
Bokyomaru: What changed your mind?
Shiori: *closes eyes* The words of a human girl. She said if everyone was born the same, the world would be a dull, boring place. It would be like a garden with only 1 kind of flower. But if you add a different seed and let it grow, then it becomes more colorful and unique.
Bokoymaur: That's a nice comparison, but how does it help with my guilt trip?
Shiori: *opens eyes* You can't take credit for the actions of others. The way I see it, you're actually pretty lucky. At least you knew your father.
Bokyomaru: You didn't know yours?
Shiori: *watches dragonfly fly away* He died before I was born.
Bokyomaru: I'm sorry.
Shiori: That's another problem you have.
Bokyomaru: What is?
Shiori: You apologize for things that aren't your fault.
Bokyomaru: I do, don't I? I'll try to break that habit.
Shiori: Please do.
Bokyomaru: Enough of this depressing talk, it's about to start. Take a look.
*in the middle of the lake the water begins to bubble up. A few seconds later a small geyser erupts, sending a spray of water into the air. The scene becomes even more beautiful as the rays cast by the setting sun create a misty rainbow on the water's surface.*
Shiori: I think I understand what you meant when you said 'comes to life'. That view would brighten any mood.
Bokyomaru: Another thing I like about this place is no matter how many times I sit here and watch the geyser, I never get tired of it...oh no!
Shiori: Oh no what?
Bokyomaru: I had a gift I was going to give you but I forgot it.
Shiori: A gift?
Bokyomaru: Yeah, on the way back we'll stop and I'll grab it.
Shiori: Where did you leave it?
Bokyomaru: With Reno...I'm not very good at gift-shopping for a girl, so I asked his advice.
Shiori: And he didn't make fun of you?
Bokyomaru: Surprisingly no. But if you want I'll give it to you next time I see you.
Shiori: No it's okay. We can stop on the way back. It's not like I have a curfew or anything. Besides, I wanna get some more of your brother's food.
Bokyomaru: He is an exceptional cook. If it weren't for his culinary skills, I would've starved a long time ago. I tried to learn, but I never got the hang of it.
Shiori: I'm sure you'll get it eventually.
Bokyomaru: Thanks for the vote of confidence. *stands up* C'mon, if I'm gonna get your present, we's better start heading back.
Shiori: All right. *stands* Thanks for the visual treat; I've never seen anything like it.
Bokyomaru: Don't mention it.
*walking back to the bike, Shiori suddenly feels another presence.*
Shiori: Hang on, there's someone else here.
Bokyomaru: Really? *looks around* But I don't see anyone. Are you sure someone's here?
Shiori: *sniffs the air* I can smell your scent, so you might as well come out!
Akumu: It would seem your eyes aren't as sharp as your nose.
Shiori: That voice...it's not possible...
*unable to believe what she's seeing, standing before her is none other than the demon of nightmares: Akumu.*
Shiori: You're not real...you can't be real!
Bokyomaru: What's wrong Phoenix? Do you know this guy?
Akumu: Your power...is still dormant.
Bokyomaru: What are you talking about? Who are you?
Akumu: Perhaps a reminder...
*all of a sudden, the scar on her back begins to burn as though it's on fire. Crying out in pain, she is forced to her knees.*
Bokyomaru: Stop! What are you doing to her!?
*her eyes glowing red, Shiori lashes out to attack, but her claws hit empty air. Looking around, the demon is nowhere to be seen.*
Bokyomaru: He vanished... *kneels next to Shiori* Are you okay? Is your shoulder hurt?
*with a weak smile, Shiori tries to reassure Bokyomaru she's fine. But instead she faints and falls over.*
Bokyomaru: Hey! Come on Phoenix, wake up! This is bad, I gotta get you back.
*picking her up, he carries her to the bike and gets on. Driving as fast as he can, he has no idea he's being watched.*
???: Able to purify the blackest heart with a single touch. Quite a rare gift you gave your daughter Laruto. Her power could be very useful to me.
Akumu: Master, shall I bring the girl to you?
???: Not yet. Her true abilities have not yet been awakened. For now, we will wait.
Akumu: As you wish.
*driving through the city, Bokyomaru's worry deepens as Shiori remains unconscious.*
Bokyomaru: Almost there...just stay with me. *pulling up to the bar, he scoops her up and runs to the entrance, yelling for his brother.* Reno! Get your butt out here, it's an emergency!
Reno: *opens door* What did you do, get a parking ticket?
Bokyomaru: Enough with the stupid remarks help me get her inside!
Reno: *sees Shiori unconscious* What did you do?
Bokyomaru: There's no time to explain!
Reno: *holds door open* Bring her to the back. We'll see what we can do. And try to calm down kid; we may just have to wait for her to come around, so having a panic attack is pointless.
Bokyomaru: I'm not panicking, I'm worrying!
Reno: I think where you're concerned it's the same thing. Set her down here.
Bokyomaru: Where? On the couch?
Reno: Yes. And then you can explain what happened. She doesn't seem to have a scratch on her. So how did she end up out cold?

*gently placing her on the couch, Bokyomaru recounts the story of the city tour, the run-in with the street kids, and the encounter with Akumu.*
Reno: Okay, let's go over the last part again. You were on your way here to pick up Phoenix's gift, when a strange demon appeared out of nowhere. Then she got really scared.
Bokyomaru: Yeah.
Reno: And he said something about dormany power and a reminder.
Bokyomaru: Yeah, and right after he said that she was kneeling on the ground crying in pain. He vanished when she tried to attack.
*Reno walks over to the couch and turns her on her side.*
Bokyomaru: What are you doing?
Reno: You said she was holding her shoulder right?
Bokyomaru: Yes, but as you pointed out there's not a scratch on her.
Reno: So what caused the pain. *pulling back her shirt, the terrible scar on her back is exposed* Wow, that's a nasty-looking wound.
Bokyomaru: *steps back* That explains it.
*laying her back down, Reno goes to the sink and fills a bowl with cool water.*
Reno: That explains what?
Bokyomaru: Why she keeps her distance from people. She's trying to protect herself.
Reno: *pulls out washcloth* Sounds like someone else I know.
Bokyomaru: What are you talking about?
Reno: *sets bowl on table* Don't play dumb with me kid. You think I don't notice your little guilt trips? I'm your brother, I know you better than anyone. When Dad left it hurt all of us, Mom especially. But in the long run, we were better off without him. Even if he is our father, things would have gotten worse if he stuck around and you know that.
Bokyomaru: Yes, I know...
Reno: Contrary to popular belief, no child is an exact copy of their parent, and I think that's what made him most angry.
Bokyomaru: Yeah but...
Reno: But nothing. You've been beating yourself up over this for years, it's time you absolve yourself of this foolishness and get on with your life.
Bokyomaru: Nice speech.
Reno: Thank you. I've been working on it for years.
Bokyomaru: But I was just gonna say that I don't blame myself for that anymore. Dad left because he wanted to, and I didn't have anything to do with that.
Reno: Wow. That was unexpected. Who are you and what have you done with my brother?
Bokyomaru: Shut up.
Reno: Now you sound like your old self. I'm going back to the front. Just wet that cloth and put it on her forhead, she should be fine. And before you forget again, I put that gift you got her on the counter, so be sure to give it to her when she wakes up.
Bokyomaru: Thanks Reno, I owe you one.
Reno: Just be thankful we don't have any customers right now; otherwise someone might have thought you were kidnapping her. *walks out*
Bokyomaru: He always has to have the last word. *pulling up a chair, he dips the towel in the bowl and places it on her forhead.* I don't know how you got that scar on your back, and I can't say I understand what you've been through, but you can't go through life thinking one day everyone will turn on you.

Meanwhile back at the hideout...

Matt: Hey Gale, do you think Princess will be back soon?
Gale: Oh about 5 minutes after you quit asking me that!
Matt: What did I say?
Gale: You've asked the same question 10 times already, and I've told you over and over: You. Need. To. Calm. Down. Shiori's a big girl, she doesn't need a baby-sitter.
Matt: I know that.
Tori: He's just jealous 'cause he's not on a date with her.
Matt: No I am not!
Tori: They do make a cute couple. I wouldn't be surprised if they got married.
Matt: Say what!?
Gale: Grab him.
*as Matt tries to run for the door, Gale and Tori grab his arms*
Matt: If he thinks he can steal her for himself he better think again!
Gale: Breathe Matt, she was just joking.
Matt: A joke? That's what it was?
Tori: *laughs* It sure worked on you! If I didn't know better I'd say you were on your way to stop a wedding!
Matt: You brat! *chases around room* It's not funny! You nearly gave me a heart attack!
Tori: You should've seen your face!
Matt: Just wait till I get my hands on you I'm gonna wring your scrawny neck!
Tori: You gotta catch me first!
Gale: And here we go.
*after watching the two run in circles for several minutes, she goes to her room and gets a camera. when she comes back, Matt has a still-laughing Tori in a head-lock.*
Tori: The look you had when I said the word 'marry' was so priceless!
Gale: *raises camera* Smile.
*ignoring Matt, Tori raises her hands and makes a peace sign. 3 seconds later the flash goes off as she snaps the picture.*
Gale: Another Kodak moment huh Matt?
Matt: *letting go of Tori, he puts a hand to his aching head* You just couldn't resist using the flash could you?
Gale: Nope. Sure couldn't.
Matt: And here I thought my head could'nt feel any worse.
Gale: And whose fault is that? You're the one that kept yelling for more shots.
Matt: I didn't hear anyone objecting.
Tori: That's probably because we were laughing too hard.
Matt: Laughing at what?
Tori: Do you really need a hint?
Matt: Never mind.
Gale: So, going back to what you were saying before the wrestling match...
Matt: Oh yeah. Come take a look at this. *with Gale and Tori looking on, he pulls up security footage*
Tori: All right, so they've got the usual guards around the perimeter and outside the room. They look well-armed too.
Gale: No surprise there. And look, they've got people with the item. I guess they're serious about keeping it.
Tori: Not for long.
Matt: The way you say that I take it you've figured out a way in.
Tori: Well duh. I AM the resident tactician after all.
Matt: Yeah and the resident pest.
*Tori smacks Matt's head*
Matt: Ow! Would you quit doing that you're gonna give me brain damage!
Tori: That would require actually having a brain first.
Matt: Oh now you're really breaking my heart.
Gale: Sorry to interrupt but why don't we compare insults later.
Tori: Sure. *looks at watch* 2 o'clock good for you?
Matt: You're evil the way you encourage her.
Gale: You've been saying that for years. So what's the plan?
Tori: Our best bet of getting in is through the east side of the building. What kind of alarm system is it?
Matt: Hang on a sec. *hit a few keys* Looks like a combination of a few things, including back-up lighting and , in the off chance an intruder does get in, automatic lockdown.
Tori: Can an alarm be set off in one area?
Matt: *smiles* Hardly a challenge.
Gale: I get it. If they think there's trouble inside they'll go rushing over.
Tori: Leaving few to stand in our way.
Matt: You do realize the room itself will still be guarded.
Tori: That's where my next plan comes in. *looks at Gale* How many smoke bombs do you have left?
Gale: About 5 or 6. I think I've got a few pepper bombs too.
Matt: Just don't test those on me again.
Gale: They worked didn't they?
Matt: Unfortunately yes. I thought I was gonna go blind.
Gale: I was laughing.
Matt: You always laugh when I'm in pain.
Gale: So which one you wanna use? Smoke or pepper?
Tori: Both. Pepper is our entry and smoke is our exit.
Matt: Sounds like a plan. We put it to action tommorrow. *stands* And now I'm going back to bed. *walks out*
Tori: You really think Shiori's okay?
Gale: Oh not you too.
Tori: She's been gone nearly all day. Shouldn't she be back by now?
Gale: Tori, she's on a date so of course she'll be gone for awhile. Give the girl some space and let her enjoy herself.
Tori: Okay I get the message I'll back off.
Gale: Good. Now what do you say we kill time with a game challenge?
Tori: All right I accept your challenge!
Matt: Hey keep it down out there I'm trying to sleep!
Gale: Sorry Matt.
Tori: No you're not.
Gale: Yeah but at least I can say it. Besides, it's not my fault he has a hang-over.

Tori: That's the one game he can never win. But it's always fun to watch him play. Anyway, we'll play for best of 5 this time.
Gale: I call 1st player! *runs to other room*
Tori: Hey no fair! You're always 1st player!

*3 hours later, Shiori's eyes finally open. As she sits up, the towel falls into her lap. Picking it up, she glances around and is surprised to see Bokyomaru sitting beside her. Looking at him for a few seconds she realizes he's fast asleep, but before she can say anything Reno pokes his head in the door. Seeing her sitting up and awake, he quietly walks up behind his snoozing brother and takes a deep breath.*

Reno: WAKE UP!!
*bolting upright, Bokyomaru blinks a few times then turns his head and glares at Reno.*
Reno: Turn that frown upside down kid, she's awake.
Bokyomaru: Hm? *looking at Shiori, his expression turns from anger to relief* How do you feel? Is your shoulder okay?
Shiori: My shoulder? I don't follow. Where am I?
Reno: My place. You passed out and Bokyomaru brought you here.
Shiori: I passed out?
Reno: The word he used was 'fainted'. And he has been so sweet, sitting by your side waiting until you woke up. You gave him quite a scare.
Bokyomaru: In my defense I had a good reason to be scared.
Reno: Yeah, you thought she was gonna die. You came in here carrying her in your arms screaming your damn head off.
Shiori: How long was I out?
Reno: 4 hours. You want something to eat? I made something a little while ago, so it's still warm.
Shiori: Thanks Reno.
Reno: Anytime Phoenix. Well, I better get back out there before someone decides to help themselves to a free drink.
*walking out, the two are left alone. Attempting to break the silence, Bokyomaru gets up and makes a plate of food. Picking up the small pouch, he walks back over to the couch and hands the plate to Shiori.*
Bokyomaru: Compliments of the master chef. *sits* I'm really glad you're okay.
Shiori: Did you really think I was gonna die?
Bokyomaru: Let me put it this way: if I was a cat, that would've been 8 of my 9 lives.
Shiori: *laughs* That scary huh? Sorry I worried you. *finishing the food, she nods at the bag in his hand* I assume that's the gift you were talking about?
Bokyomaru: It is. *hands pouch* Here you go. I hope you like it, but if not, then at least I can say I tried.
*opening the bag, Shiori pulls out a medallion. On the face is the mythical bird and her namesake: the phoenix. Looking at it, she can see every detail of its magnificent wings, and gazing out of its eye is a red gemstone.*
Shiori: It's beautiful. Truly a gift worth appreciating. *unclasping the chain, she fastens it around her neck* Thank you.
Bokyomaru: You're welcome. I'm happy yopu like it.
*pulling off the blanket, Shiori puts her feet on the floor.*
Bokyomaru: Hey what are you doing?
Shiori: What does it look like I'm doing? I'm standing up.
Bokyomaru: You sure you feel well enough?
Shiori: I appreciate your concern, but I'm getting up, so move aside please.
Bokyomaru: Well, since you said please...
*Bokyomaru gets up and stands to the side. Pushing herself to her feet, her legs feel a little unsteady, but she stands firm.*
Shiori: See? I told you I was fine.
Bokyomaru: Sorry I doubted you. Can I ask a personal question?
Shiori: Depends on the question.
Bokyomaru: How did you get that scar?
Shiori: Excuse me?
Bokyomaru: The scar on your back. How did it happen?
Shiori: And when exactly did you see my back? I don't recall taking my shirt off lately, so would you like to clarify?
Bokyomaru: You held your shoulder, screamed and fainted. Under the circumstances, can you really blame me for thinking you were hurt?
Shiori: I guess not...
Bokyomaru: And for the record, Reno did it not me.
Shiori: That still didn't give you any right to look at my back. Besides, why would you care?
Bokyomaru: I care because no one deserves to suffer like that. Believe it or not, you can trust others.
Shiori: Only if I wanted to, which I don't.
Bokyomaru: Why are you so afraid to trust?
Shiori: I'm not afraid, merely cautious. I know from experience that trust is just another weapon people use for their own gain.
Bokyomaru: Is that what happened to you?
Shiori: No, what happened was I was dumb enough to let my guard down. Any more questions?
Bokyomaru: Yes, but I'll keep them to myself.
Shiori: Good idea.
Bokoymaru: Shall we go then? We can use the back door. *opening the door, Reno stands there holding a camera.*
Reno: Say cheese.
Bokyomaru: *slams door* Don't you have better things to do than tormenting me!?
Reno: But that's my favorite part of the day! Face it bro you're not leaving till I get a picture!
Bokyomaru: Never gonna happen!
Reno: Oh yeah? What if I tell about every embarrassing thing you've done since you were 4?
Bokyomaru: You wouldn't.
Reno: I would.
Bokyomaru: *slowly opens door* This is low even for you.
Reno: Old tricks are the best tricks. Now get out here and stand in front of the bike.
Shiori: I don't mind a picture.
Reno: See? Phoenix isn't camera-shy. Quit being such a grouch kid.
Bokyomaru: Still a cheap trick.
*Bokyomaru leans against his bike and folds his arms over his chest. Standing next to him, Shiori hangs an arm over his shoulder and smiles.*
Bokyomaru: Why do you need a snapshot anyway?
Reno: Because it's a rare event for you to socialize with anyone much less a girl.
Bokyomaru: I had to ask.

Reno: Okay big smile. Say cheese. *click* Lovely smile kid. One of these days your face is gonna crack.
Bokyomaru: Shut up.
Reno: You didn't say please first.
Bokyomaru: We're leaving.
Reno: What no snappy comeback?
Bokyomaru: We're leaving now. *starts bike*
Shiori: I think he's mad.
Reno: Don't worry. He'll get over it in a couple of days. Take care Phoenix.
Shiori: You too. Don't tell anyone I fainted.
Reno: Scout's honor.
*climbing on behind Bokyomaru, the two drive away*
Bokyomaru: I don't know where Gale's hiding place is, so I'll drop you off at the racetrack.
Shiori: That's fine. *driving the rest of the way in silence, she contemplates Akumu's words.* Mother hiding me, my father, dormant powers...myself or my parents. Which is more unknown? I need answers.
Bokyomaru: Here's our stop.
Shiori: *gets off* Thanks for today, I had fun.
Bokyomaru: It was my pleasure. Next time I'll take you to the arcade. Look, you're probably gonna say it's none of my business, but who was that guy?
Shiori: What makes you think I know?
Bokyomaru: Your reaction.
Shiori: I don't know who he is.
Bokyomaru: But you have seen him before.
Shiori: Sort of.
Bokyomaru: What do you mean sort of?
Shiori: You wouldn't believe me if I told you, and what's with the interrogation?
Bokyomaru: It's not an interrogation. I want to help you, but I can't do that unless you give me a chance.
Shiori: I saw him...in a dream.
Bokyomaru: Seriously?
Shiori: Gave you a chance.
Bokyomaru: Ok, I'm sorry. Just wasn't expecting that. So what did he want from you?
Shiori: Honestly? I don't know.
Bokyomaru: All right, I believe you, but if you ever need to talk you know how to find me.
Shiori: Follow my nose.
Bokyomaru: Or you could call the bar, whatever works for you. And now I take my leave. See you at the next race.
Shiori: If that's a request for a rematch, I accept.
Bokyomaru: Don't let it go to your head that was just beginner's luck.
Shiori: Yeah, keep telling yourself that. Thanks again for everything, I owe you one.
Bokyomaru: It's not every day I get a chance to rescue a pretty girl. Just don't make it a habit of scaring me like that.
Shiori: I usually have that effect on people. It's the fangs.
Bokyomaru: Phoenix.
Shiori: But since you came to my rescue I'll make an exception.
Bokyomaru: Lucky me. Anyway...
*before she can react, Bokyomaru kisses her cheek*
Bokyomaru: See you when I see you.
Shiori: *blushes* Yeah, sure. Bye.
*after he drives off, she puts a hand to her face. Feeling how warm it is, she takes off into the sky as though to escape her emotions.*
Shiori: Get a grip on yourself. There's no place for you here so forget it.
*arriving back, she takes a few deep breathes before going in. quietly closing the door, she wanders into the living room where Gale and Tori are playing a high-speed racing game.*
Tori: You can't get a power boost in the middle of the game!
Gale: Can to now I'm back in the lead!
Tori: Not for long you're not taste my nitro!
Shiori: So, is this how you practice for racing on the street?
Gale: What can I say? It's in my blood. So how'd it go? Leave nothing out.
Tori: Did he kiss you?
Shiori: *face turns red* It's not like that between us, we're just friends.
Gale: Is that so? Then what's that around your neck?
Shiori: This? *holds out pendant* It was a gift.
Tori: He gave you a present? Let me see. Wow, this is a high-quality item. You can tell it's hand-made.
Gale: You know what that means.
*say together*
Gale & Tori: You're an official couple!
Shiori: What!? Since when!?
Gale: It's an unwritten rule that when a guy gives you a gift like that it's that start of a relationship, and he's obviously crazy about you.
Shiori: What are you talking about I'm practically a stranger!
Tori: That just makes you more mysterious.
Gale: That's not the word I would use. I'd say desirable.
Shiori: *covers ears* I can't hear you I'm not listening la la la la la!
Gale: Don't know why you're so embarrassed about it, but I'm glad your first date went well. I have to say it's a good match.
Tori: But next time get pictures.
Shiori: I'm going to my room! *pauses* Where's Matt at? Is he still out cold?
Tori: He woke up long enough to give a rundown on our next assignment.
Shiori: Don't you guys ever worry about him?
Gale: I've been worried since the day I met the guy. I win again!
Tori: You cheat again! Every time we play this game you set the difficulty on hard!
Gale: Don't be such a sore loser an go start the dishes.
Tori: Why do I have to?
Gale: Because I won and you lost that's why. And if you're gonna keep whining about it you can do them for a week.
Tori: I hate you.
*Tori stalks off into the kitchen, less than a minute later a scream is heard.*
Tori: AHHHHH!
Shiori: What was that?
Gale: That's not good. There's only one thing that can make Tori scream like that. *stands on couch* Quick get off the floor! Matt's pet is loose!
Shiori: What pet?
*as if in response to her question, a small green blur comes rushing in and attaches itself to Shiori's hand.*
Shiori: AHHHH! Get it off! Get this thing off me! It's eating my hand! *swinging her arm around, the little beast sinks its teeth in deeper, refusing to let go.* SOMEBODY DO SOMETHING!
Gale: Hold still! It's an iguana, once they bite onto something they never let go. We're gonna have to pry its mouth open.
Shiori: I don't care what you do just get it off!
Gale: All right don't bust a lung. We need to calm it down. Tori! Grab a towel!
Tori: I'm not going near that thing!
Shiori: My hand is being chewed and you're worried if the lizard is calm!?
Gale: Now Tori!?
*holding a towel and a small knife, Tori cautiously walks in*
Gale: Sometime this year would be nice! And you should probably sit down.
Shiori: *sits* Whatever you do, do it fast!
Gale: Just watch out for...
*the lizard whips its tail around, catching Shiori in the face. Holding her free hand over the cut, she glares at Gale.*
Shiori: You were saying?
Gale: Nothing.
Tori: And that's why I stay away from that little scale-bag.
Gale: You're not helping.
Tori: No I'm not.
Gale: *holding the towel over it, she gently wedges the knife between its teeth* Try not to move.
Shiori: No problem there.
*prying its jaws open, Shiori jerks her hand free and runs to the sink. Turning it on full blast, she winces as the water runs over her hand.*
Shiori: Stupid lizard. I swear if I see that little beast again I'll turn it into a wallet. *with the blood washed off, she goes through the cabinet looking for bandages.*
Tori: Gale put Doragon back in his tank. How he keeps getting out I'll never know. You all right?
Shiori: No I'm not all right!
Tori: Just asking. If you're looking for bandages the first aid kit's on the top shelf.
