Yui doesn't try and hold you; you are in no condition for that. So you hold her as she trembles, her eyes overflowing.You lean back, and gather her tears, drawing them from her cheeks with a simple gesture and turning them, making them into shining crystalline loops. She watches, confused, marveling at the simple beauty of your trick. Without a smile, in utter seriousness, you take the crystalline hoops out of the air, gripping them gently.Opening your hand she stares at the shimmering, solid loops of glassy tears. You take her hand and slowly place it over her pinky, on her right hand. The other you take and place on your right hand pinky finger. Eyes bright with wonder she touches the solidified tear with her other hand, before you link your pinky with hers, the tiny rings making a soft chiming sound as they brush together.“I won't promise, Yui-niji-chan,” you murmur softly, and her eyes lift to look into yours. “I will remember, though, and this will remind me. I will rely on you, and Akari, and Yuuhi, and Inau. I will allow me family to assist me, and protect me, as I do them. I won't promise....” She blinks back tears as she smiles at you, and you return the smile with a small one of your own. “But I will remember.”The beautiful young woman lowers her head and takes your hand in both of hers, kissing your knuckles reverently. Her voice is a bare whisper. “Aniki.” It is all she says, and perhaps the only thing that she needs to say.You are Ryuu Ryukusa, Daimyo of the Ryuu Clan, and Kami are you fucked the hell up.Lying back down takes some doing, and she actually has to help you. Whatever Shinkai Hiei was made a mess out of you, bad enough that even with the regenerative powers granted by immortality and the flesh of a living mermaid and the kami you use as weapons and defenses, you are barely hanging on to consciousness and life. Apparently, you should be dead, so that you can regenerate fully, but you are doing a good job of resisting that particular issue.
Sure, you'd get back up again, but at the time you suffered the injuries you couldn't afford to be dead. While you will recover from death, it still leaves you vulnerable to truly dying. On the other and, you made one heaven of an impression on your enemies and a few of your family members. And kind of pissed off a couple as well, somewhat but Yui-niji-chan at least has made her case. And it was a good one. You need to rely on the others more; you definitely won't survive another beating like that one, and Toshio Ryoga undoubtedly has worse up his sleeve than a nue-child with the regenerative powers of a Wood dragonette, the psychic powers of a movie villain, and the insane murderous hate of the wani. Yui extends her hands over you and the flow of Chi and Shen into your body makes you want to relax. You hold tight to your power and consciousness, however; Kiku-jinshu-chan was very clear about the fact that if you do lose consciousness now, you'll lose your power and with it, your current life.Which brings up an interesting question or three. Questions can wait. No distractions. Ask Yui-chan how many immortals she's seen, aside from you and Yuuhi. If she doesn't mind talking about it, how many gods has she met in person anyways? Where did she learn reiki? That's not a technique that you self teach. She knows that you weren't joking about having Kiki-hime put her and Akari through their paces, right?

[XX] If she doesn't mind talking about it, how many gods has she met in person anyways?[X] Where did she learn reiki? That's not a technique that you self teach.[x] She knows that you weren't joking about having Kiki-hime put her and Akari through their paces, right?The warmth radiating from her hands is relaxing, and it soothes the intense pain of your injuries well. In an effort to remain awake you ask her curiously, “Do you mind if I ask how many Great Kami you have met, Yui-chan?” She flushes, just a little. “You don't have to answer. I'm just trying to stay awake.”She moves her hands slowly up your back, over your ruined shoulder. The control you have over your blood is sufficient to let your tissues hold broken bone in place, as well as tying the marrow together. It would have been a very unpleasant surprise to you to have tried to fight further without being in a barrier. Your exhaustion kept you from realizing how badly you are injured; you're definitely going to be more careful next time.“I would say I have seen many, but I've only met a very few. I met Ebisu, the Laughing Go; he was very kind to me. He gave me paper-wrapped-rice-candies. The Jesus-kami was also kind. He told me a bedtime story when I was very small. He was sad and gentle.” She runs her hands over your shoulder and you refuse to wince or show pain; even the gentle flow of her Chi and Shen is exquisitely painful over the ruined bone and muscle. “Suijin visited often, and he taught me the names of all the clouds and the rains.”“Suijin? Not Ryujin?”“No, aniki. Suijin is the god of all water, and most of his temples are just plaques set up near where springs emerge.” You concentrate harder on your power, keeping your organs and bones in place as she shifts her attentions to your lower back. “I met Kuebiko too. He was quiet, but he showed me how the rains nurture the fields and plants. And of course Ame-no-Uzume. She's beautiful.”“Well, Amaterasu-Okami thought so,” you murmur softly, making Yui giggle at the thought.“Are you a shipper, aniki? That's so weird.” You smile, having heard it personally from Amaterasu-Okami.“Who was it that taught you reiki, Yui-chan?” you murmur sleepily, and she pauses, helping you to roll over onto your back. More to keep you awake than to access any other part of your body, though she looks sad at the state of you. You smile and tilts your head as she looks you over, and she blushes brightly, suddenly nervous.“Ah, it was Amaterasu-Okami, aniki. She gave me the skill as a gift, to help my family. I thought she meant my blood relatives, but it wasn't for them.” She looks down shyly. “I much prefer this family.”
>>2202629The door opens as you are sitting up, and Kiku-chan frowns, but doesn't say anything. Jinyuu-onee-sama is with her, and as they ritually cleans themselves, you whisper to Yui-chan that you really are looking forward to Kiki-hime's display of her and Akari's talents.When Kiku and Jinyuu walk over, the latter pale already as you draw a sheet over your body for her modesty, Kiku-chan gives Yui a puzzled look, as she's radiating a soft pink glow from the intensity of her blush. Shaking her head Yui creeps back, giving the elder dragonettes room to work.It occurs to you that you actually have no idea how old Yui is.“You shouldn't have bothered with the sheet, Ryukusa-sama,” Kiku-jinshu-chan comments mildly.“My sister is modest,” you reply, as you turn over and lie flat. Most of the injuries were from behind, so they're more easily accessed there. “She also doesn't see much blood, so be gentle.”“If it is for you, aka-chan, I'll persevere,” your sister murmurs softly. You glance at her but she doesn't seem to be ashamed at the moment, only worried about you. You nod to Yui-niji-chan and she slips the sheet from your body and begins folding it.Jinyuu-onee-sama stares at your bared body, and there is nothing good about the expression she's wearing. It's just as bad as it looks, and nothing worse. I got a little unlucky, that's all. Say nothing; she's having enough trouble. Inau-kun really did save my life; you should thank her. Even this will heal completely, if I am given time, big sis.
>>2202633>[x] Say nothing; she's having enough trouble.
>>2202633>[x] It's just as bad as it looks, and nothing worse.>[x] Even this will heal completely, if I am given time, big sis.

>>2202633> It's just as bad as it looks, and nothing worse.> Inau-kun really did save my life; you should thank her.Jinyuu probably worries as much as any of them, Ryukusa is not the easiest imouto to care for
>>2202633> Inau-kun really did save my life; you should thank her.> Even this will heal completely, if I am given time, big sis.Credit where it's due, affection and reassuramces to our poor, worried sister.
[X] It's just as bad as it looks, and nothing worse.[XX] Even this will heal completely, if I am given time, big sis.[XX] Inau-kun really did save my life; you should thank her.“Honestly, it really is not any worse than it looks, onee-sama. My power is strong enough to keep things together and in place, so I can heal.” She takes slow, deep breaths through her mouth, and closes her eyes for a moment. Yui-niji-chan scoots closer to your head and strokes your hair, which is pretty much the safest place to touch you right now. “It will all heal, given time. I really don't feel like spending any time in Hell, though. Enma-O is a nice fellow, but I would much rather live my life without spending any time dead, you know?”Jinyuu-onee-sama can't help herself. She gives a sharp, surprised bark of laughter while covering her mouth, and Kiku-jinshu-chan gives you a stern look. “Aka-chan, you are the most outrageous little sister....”“Some things don't change, honestly,” you admit causally. “Other things do,” you murmur more softly, rubbing the ring on your little finger with your thumb, makes Yui smile shyly.“She cannot maintain her power at this rate. Her shen is dwindling, and even Yui's reiki can only do so much.” Kiku-jinshu-chan lays a hand on Jinyuu's arm. “You would have to hold her power for her, or use your power upon her, to keep her alive as we heal her. If you cannot she will die, but because she is immortal, she will not remain dead.”“I can heal even from this, given time, but I'm not doing so hot,” you admit freely, earning you a concerned glance from Yui, who is the only person you can actually see. “It's taking as much effort to stay awake as it is to keep my body intact. I have the sneaking suspicion that most of why I'm still awake as well as alive is because I'm a demigod, not merely a dragonette.”“Inau-sama would probably say the same thing,” Yui comments. “I don't think she would be wrong either.”“You should really thank Inau-kun, Jinyuu-onee-sama. She really saved my life. I couldn't have taken Hiei and Natto at the same time.” She makes a soft affirmative noise and you smile at Yui-chan. “Next time I'll make sure I have Yuuhi-chan on hand.”“How long....” Your sister's voice is soft, and you turn your head carefully, looking at her. She is definitely pale, but her hands are gripping her kimono tightly, and her eyes are cool and calm.“At least ten hours,” murmurs Kiku, looking at you with a steely gaze in spite of her golden eyes.  Uh, wait, don't I get a say in that? That's too long, Kiku. What can be done to speed up the process? Spread the healing out. I've spent enough time away from my family. ….doctor knows best. Is there any way I can help?
>>2202727>[x] Uh, wait, don't I get a say in that?>[x] ….doctor knows best.>[x] Is there any way I can help?
>>2202727>[x] ….doctor knows best.>[x] Is there any way I can help?I feel like this isn't quite the time for protest.
>>2202727> ….doctor knows best.> Is there any way I can help?
>>2202727> Uh, wait, don't I get a say in that?> ….doctor knows best.
>>2202727I forget, did we have anything scheduled in the next ten hours that we need to postpone or delegate?
>>2202825You can't really postpone worry and paranoia, but you might be able to delegate the second.
>>2202840I think we once delegated panic to Akari. One time only of course.
[X] Uh, wait, don't I get a say in that?[XX] Is there any way I can help?[XXXX] ….doctor knows best.You don't particularly like the sound of that length of time passing. Yes, you did agree to rely upon your family and your warriors, but ten hours unconscious and you might as well have let yourself be dead for a while. “I don't suppose I get much of say in that length of time? That's a long time to be out just after I've antagonized the Yakuza and Kiki-hime insulted the servants of Kuraokami.”Kiku-jinshu-chan stares at you, and Yui-niji-chan frowns mightily, which is a mighty frown indeed. Kiku-chan closes her eyes and very clearly is counting to ten. When she opens her eyes again she is very calm. “Ten hours is the very least amount of time that would be required for you to be out of danger. That is even with your power, Ryukusa. You've already used most of what Shen Yui-chan has given you, in these few minutes. You can render yourself dead by using all your Shen; you have the willpower to do such a thing entirely by accident.”With a soft sigh, you turn your head down, looking at the flooring beneath the futon you are on. “As my priestess demands. If I can be of assistance, I expect to be told, though.” Kiku says nothing, but you can almost feel her relief. You strokes your hair a little more.“You can guide your sister's power with yours. Shoko doesn't have the power to do this, but Peta-chan says she has a favor she can call upon if it becomes necessary. If Jinyuu-sama does start to have trouble, you will be wakened and she can rest a while.” Kiku sounds very much relieved at your acquiescence. You're not that terrible a patient, but she's been very on edge. Yui-niji-chan places her hands over you, ready to intervene if necessary, or perhaps use her skills to help.“Go slowly, Jinyuu-sama,” Kiku instructs your sister softly. “Ryukusa-sama will show you what to do.”
>>2202825Hope n->>2202847Ah, that's alright then.However, remember that this is Ryukusa. Who has trouble sitting still for 5 minutes. And doesn't really sleep, nor can she afford to at the moment. Good thing she has her family there is all I'm saying.
>>2202857Steeling yourself, you allow your adopted sister's power to influence your body. It's hard at first, until she realizes exactly what you are doing. “Don't talk about it. Just feel what I am doing and replace my power with yours.” You can just imagine the glances between Kiku-chan and Yui-chan, but neither says a word. Jinyuu remains silent as well, and it is much easier for her power to take the place of yours. It's a powerful, dangerous trick that has lead to legends of unkillable dragonettes and dragons existing.Only a Water dragonette could keep the blood moving through their body and their heart pumping by the force of their power over blood alone.When she has taken control of all the blood in your body, holding your flesh and bones together by the force of her will acting upon your body, you can no longer resist – you pass out.Later....You wake up with someone's fingers inside your flesh, manipulating your shattered shoulder blade. The whispered conversation is not particularly enlightening, though it is currently between Yui-niji-chan and Akari-niji-chan, mostly, 'here', 'hold this', and 'careful', along with pauses between 'this seems to work' and 'I think this is okay'.The pain is incredible. Sleep. Listen. Help. “Wake-up.” Swear.
>>2202865>[x] Sleep.>[x] Listen.>[x] Swear while asleep.
>>2202865>[x] Sleep.Let's just nope out of this.
>>2202865> Sleep> Swear

>>2202865> Sleep.> Swear.
>>2202865>[X] Sleep.>[X] Listen.
>>2202865> Listen.> Sleep.Man, they're treating Ryukusa's bones like a jigsaw puzzle? Guess there isn't any other way of handling it though.
>>2202871>>2202875>>2202878>>2202886>>2202893>>2202907>>2202922Wait, didn't they tell us if we slept without our sister's help we would die?>>2202865> Listen.> Help.>Grunt to signify you're conscious.
>>2202939She is helping right now, we're just conscious for a moment during.
>>2202865>[x] Listen.>[X] Swear.
[XX] Listen.[X] Swear.[XXX] Sleep.A moment later you hear a third voice: Yuuhi. “Be careful. If you glue it out of place it will itch a lot when it tries to heal properly.” Yui makes an affirmative noise.Glue? They're using super-glue to glue your bones back in place.“Shimatte.” The fingers in your shoulder freeze. Three sets; most likely two of Akari's and one of Yui's. Yuuhi's on the other side.A gentle hand touches your head. “Rest, Aka-chan.” Jinyuu.You sleep.Later. You open your eyes and look at the candle-lit ceiling of the shrine. Your left shoulder is bandaged, and hurts a lot less, but the injuries along your thigh and around your kidney are only covered in cloth which was then taped into place. Jinyuu-onee-sama's power is slipping and the pain woke you up. You gently extricate your blood from her power and she sighs deeply, and almost instantly falls asleep where she sits.Your heart is working on it's own now, and you can feel the injured organs healing well. They're not entirely whole, not yet, and your leg isn't healing at all, but the minor injuries and wounds are all gone. Kiki-hime is sleeping next to you, tucked into a small futon and turned towards you, her expression worried even in sleep. You turn your head to see Yuuhi-chan's softly glowing eyes reflecting the candlelight as she watches you, her nodachi wrapped in her arms and leaning across her body diagonally. I never asked the name of your sword, Yuuhi-chan. Yuupi. Pretty pretty Yuupi. See if she's inclined to say anything first. Ask if anyone else is in the room – you can feel who is asleep. Candlelight vigils are romantic, aren't they?
>>2203012> Candlelight vigils are romantic, aren't they?> I never asked the name of your sword, Yuuhi-chan.

[XXX] I never asked the name of your sword, Yuuhi-chan.[XX] Candlelight vigils are romantic, aren't they?[X] Yuupi. Pretty pretty Yuupi.You smile and lie still, though Yuuhi doesn't seem particularly interested in making you stay put. She could, right now. She's the better swordsman, and you're injured. “I never asked....what's his name?”She shifts the weapon slightly, and you nod carefully, holding tightly to your power. That kidney's going to be trouble. “Yama-no-Naka-ni-Ochiru-Hoshi.” Into the Mountainside a Falling Star; beautifully poetic. “Sensei and....and a....a friend made him.” Her hesitation at the mention of her friend is unusual, especially for Yuuhi. Yuuhi frowns slightly and looks down. “I haven't thought about her in a long time. I miss her sometimes.”That's....very different for Yuuhi. “I didn't mean to make you feel bad.”She shakes her head. “How do you feel aniki?”“Like a nue tried to eat my guts.” She blinks owlishly at you. “I think he probably would have, if he'd managed to kill me. He was a demon. Not at all human.” The nogitsune-born nods slowly. “It a beautiful name. For your blade.”“Sensei made him from metal from a falling star. He's very old, but very strong. Ojin-O was impressed.” You stare at her. “Hachiman-sensei.”“You learned from him?” She shakes her head. “How did you meet the Samurai God?”“He spoke to my master about how to slay Wani-no-Hifure-no-Omi, so he could marry his daughters, Miyanushiyaka-hime and Onabe-hime. Master told him that killing Hifure-no-Omi outright would cause turmoil, and suggested instead that he offer an alliance. While they were discussing the treaty, Hifure-no-Omi became drunk, and insulted Hachiman-sensei. As an apology he offered his daughters to Hachiman-sensei in marriage. Their daughters became the wives of the next emperor.” Yuuhi smiles down at you. “Master was very wise.”
>>2203197“I hope I can be as wise, Yuuhi-chan.” She nods and reverently sets her nodachi aside. She scoots over so you can look at her without craning your neck so far. “Thank you for watching over Hime-chan for me.” Yuuhi shakes her head solemnly, and looks down at you. You slide your arm free of the light blanket and reach for her. Taking your hand in both of hers the nogitsune-child rests it on her lap as she sits seiza. “This is nice. I would rather be whole....but this is still nice.”She blushes slightly and looks down. You smile up at her, and glance at your wife, who is looking much more peaceful now, and then turn your attention back to Yuuhi. “Yuuhi. Yuupi.” She blushes even more at the softly called pet name. “Pretty, pretty Yuupi. My very own samurai.”“Hai, Ryukusa-dono,” she murmurs softly.“Will you stay by my side, Yuupi-chan?” Her eyes shimmer softly in the candlelight, and it isn't the candlelight causing the shimmer. “Will you guard me, kill my enemies, and protect my wife as I face our enemies?” She nods rapidly. “That is my Yuupi. My very own samurai. I won't be leaving you behind again.”Her voice is a barely audible whisper. “Thank you, Master.”>To Be Continued....
Thank you for reading and playing.I'll be going to bed very shortly, but I'll answer any questions or curiosities at work later. More home-time for Ryukusa next week.
