Chapter 5: Hunting


The night was clear of clouds, and a cool breeze blew through the trees. Even though there were no sign of rain, an eerie scent of the incoming perspiration filled the air. On the ground a thin fog made visibility minimal for those who traveled on foot, but the treetops were clear of the burden.

A black figure darted through the branches heading deeper into the dark woods. His speed was unmatched by any that crossed his path, usually never tiring. However, on this night, his breath clouded in front of him in short pants as he sped through the trees. "What the hell is wrong with me? I never tier, especially so quickly."

Landing on a sturdy branch, the shirtless figure knelt to catch his breath. His stomach twisted in the familiar ache that reminded him that he was still injured. Luckily, the shadowed figure hadn't ripped open any wounds, yet. Sound and sight seemed to diminish, as touch and smell enhanced. This wasn't like him at all, what was happening?

Every single brush of a leaf against his skin made him shiver with an unknown sensation. Everything down to the misty ground, he could smell out perfectly. If he concentrated, he could make out a buck a few meters away, grazing. Usually, the sounds of nature would envelope him into sleep, but tonight his body refused to rest. The strange scents that attacked his senses were overwhelming and made his mind race.

This didn't help the fact that he was still extremely hot to the touch. A pale hand reached up to touch the ward over his Jagan. He felt feint, and his vision could only make out things a few feet in front of him, the rest were blurred colors and shapes. Sound could hardly register over the slight ringing in his ears. Was he dying? Why was this happening to him?

Over the natural instinctual need to find another person, preferably a male, Hiei decided that he needed to find some water. Thinking back when Kurama had put the medicine on his body, it nearly made him gasp. Was it that strange medicine that was making him act like this? However, he had stated that he wasn't feeling good before he started applying that strange smelling medicine. The Fox wouldn't purposefully do this to him; he is too kind for that.

Shaking his head a bit, Hiei continued through the branches, having to squint to keep focus. He has been on the run for over thirty minutes that he timed, and doesn't plan to stop until he finds some water to wash in. Usually, he could smell out a small pond, but his senses were jumbled. He just had to keep moving forward, he couldn't stop. If a stray demon finds him in this condition, it could spell the end of him. He was in no condition to fight any demon at the moment.

It was all so strange. Why was his body responding like this? It was like he didn't even have control over himself anymore. The Fire-youkai is a strong S class demon, tamer of the darkness flame technique, and master of the Jagan eye. Yet, running will catch him out of breath? "This is ridiculous!"

An angry growl left his throat, as he pushed himself to run faster. There was no way he would be weakened enough to slow down. He needed to get away, for reasons he couldn't figure out. Usually, when there was anything wrong with the little half-koorime, the first thing he would normally do would consult Kurama about it. This, however, was beyond embarrassing. His body was thinly covered in sweat, and a strange feeling mixed within his stomach. It felt similarly to nausea, but he didn't have the urge to throw up. There was no way he would subject himself into seeking out the Fox, or anyone in that matter, to help him.

A bare foot landed on a mossy branch, the limb slipping out from underneath him. Hiei gasped, as his chest made contact with the soft, yet, hard surface as he fell forward. The wind was knocked out of him, as pain shot through his body. His limp form slid quickly back, falling through the mess of thin branches as he made his way down to the ground.

He landed on his back, his vision clouding even further, as his lungs tried to breathe in oxygen to no avail. Along with the sensation of being unable to breathe, he felt an immense amount of pain from his stomach, and the warm feeling of a liquid dampening the ground he was on. Hiei rolled to his side and clenched an arm around his abdomen.

Focusing on one thing at a time, the youkai tried to take deep breathes in, only to managing short gasps. His breath clouded in front of him, as he tried to clear his vision. He fought the urge to simply pass out and give in to his body's weakness, but he refused. There was no way he would fall victim to his strange instincts that surrounded his mind.

Eyelids fluttered open as his senses were slowly returning to as normal as they could be; he placed a hand down against the cool and damp grass in front of him. The feeling made him shiver as he pushed himself up with a grunt of effort to a seating position. The arm unwrapped around his stomach to his current view, close to his face. Red stained the bandages that contained his black dragon pet, and his palm. Great, he ripped open his wound again.

Ruby eyes looked up to the tree branches that he fell from, noticing that they were also splattered with the same red tint. A sigh left his quivering lips, as Hiei pulled himself to his hands and knees crawling over to the tree that he fell from. For some reason, being in this position brought a feeling of anxiousness to sprout from his body. He didn't like it at all.

The Fire-demon quickly, as he could, clawed his way up the bark to allow him to stand once more, and continue his journey. With palms flat against the tree in front of him, he let out a breath as he finally was able to take a deep inhale of oxygen from his fall. Turning his gaze to look behind him, he peeked over a shoulder to look at the blood stained grass that he landed on.

With his head bowed, Hiei sighed and moved his wobbly legs, using the tree as support, and walked around the hunk of wood. Surprisingly, and mostly to his luck, a small pond with crystal clear blue water shined in the moonlight. Auburn eyes widened, as he nearly leaped for the liquid. Now that he saw what he had been searching for, the half-koorime only just noticed how parched he had been.

Stumbling from his weakened body, Hiei landed on all fours at the edge of the pond. Panting, Hiei took a moment to look at his reflection in the mirror-like waters. He looked awful. Reaching a hand up to touch his cheek, his eyes narrowed in concentration at his complexion. His normally healthy peachy skin color now resembled a pale off-white, only definable through the deep red blush that stained his cheeks. Was this because of the blood loss? Was he running a fever? There has got to be something wrong with him, for his body to respond like this.

With another dreadful sigh, he placed his hand back on the ground, and decided that perhaps a drink of cool water would help him. He felt dehydrated anyway. Leaning his upper body down, he spread his knees to balance himself as his lips touched the tastefully cold waters surface. Ruby eyes closed, as he concentrated on the feeling of the liquid entering through his chapped lips, swirling around his tongue and gliding down his throat.

Immensely, he felt much better; his entire body felt cleansed. The wound on his stomach now only throbbed with a dull ache. His body didn't feel as exhausted, and he seemed more sated than before. Who would have guessed that such a simple thing as water could help cure the smallest of complications? Pulling in a large gulp of water in his mouth, Hiei lifted his upper body back up and swallowed with an audible sigh of relief.

Leaning back down, right before his lips touched the water's surface once more; he paused, eyes snapping open. He heard something. Staring at his reflection, he concentrated on his hearing and sense of smell. The fire-demon knew that he had heard the sound of the grass rustling from nearby. Sniffing the air, he kept his body still, as he sensed out another being. It was a male from the scent, which sent his body into an array of involuntary shivers.

If he was attacked, there would be a chance for him to win, if it was a low-class demon. Most of the filth in these forests roams from E-C class. If he managed to get into a tussle with a strong C class, then he could possibly get killed. He didn't have his katana with him, and only could rely on his bare hands as a defense. His ki was already dangerously low, which signaled a beacon in these woods as a weak target for food. This was not good.

A low growl emitted from a nearby bush, making Hiei dart his wide-eyed gaze over to the two golden eyes that looked at him from the darkness to his right. His vision was already messed up enough, and it irked him that he couldn't make out the creature that looked back into his own gaze. From the sound, it made him shake in a sense of fear that he couldn't make out an energy signal from the creature. Those eyes didn't look familiar, the only others that came to his mind were Yusuke's demonic form and the Youko. However, they wouldn't attack him while he was in this condition, would they?

Without taking a chance, Hiei immediately jumped to stand, ignoring the pain that shot through his body and made a dash to escape. If he couldn't fight, then he would have to try and outrun it. The moment he dashed off, he heard the harsh rustle of the bush that hid the creature as it followed him easily. "Kuso…!"*1 His speed wasn't enough to get away; he could smell the bloodlust in the air coming from the other creature that was following him.

The golden-eyed demon possibly knew of his condition and was purposefully trying to tire him out, before going in for the kill. That wasn't going to happen. After darting through the trees for a few minutes, Hiei came into a clearing and stopped in the middle of it, turning around to face his attacker.

A rustle of leaves from a tree signaled the creature's arrival, as a black figure leaped out into the clearing. With the moonlight as his guide, Hiei's eyes looked up as the demon appeared before him, landing a few yards away. Its werewolf-like figure was hunched over, its ears twitching atop its head and a tail swishing behind him, as another growl rang in the air.

Hiei prepared himself, getting into his normal fighting stance to try and fend off the attacker. Hopefully, other demons didn't follow him, or else they would just sit back and watch, picking off the weakened winner or dead loser. "Don't mess with me…" He whispered, hopefully, trying to bluff his way out of fighting.

The bluff didn't work, as the darkened creature lunged after the Fire-youkai with a demonic snarl. A sharp claw shined in the moonlight, as it dashed towards Hiei. It was fast, but the half-koorime was faster, as he jumped out of the way, hearing the sound of the claws swipe at the air. This demon seemed rather stupid, and could be easily defeated. "You asked for this…!" Hiei said, as his fists glowed in a white-hot flame.

The creature's eyes narrowed, as it charged once again, this time Hiei didn't move. A sharp claw reached up once again to attack its target, but this time a fist intercepted it, protected by fire. With the flames creating light, ruby eyes widened as the creatures face was illuminated. His first assumption was correct. It was a gray-furred demonic wolf-breed, with a long muzzle rimmed with sharp teeth. Its glowing yellow eyes bore deep into his own red ones.

Both figures jumped back, creating distance between each other, the creature's body slinking back into the darkness. This time, Hiei ran for the attack. With the fire on his fists lighting his way, he swung back and swiped forward toward the wolf-demon. It dodged easily, as Hiei continued with his barrage of fast punches. "How in the hell?!"

The creature leaped back, Hiei following in his steps trying to catch him off guard. With a growl, the fire-demon has had enough. Pulling his fist back, he charged his ki into the flames that surrounded it, and pushed his hand forward, unraveling his hand to release the energy all-together. A flamethrower bursts from his right arm; the fire of the mortal flame lunged forward to devour anyone in its wake. He was too weak to use the darkness technique but he wouldn't want to waste his dragon on such a lowly creature anyways.

The flames caught a few trees on fire, but it was still difficult to see if he had even made contact. Hiei stood silently, and listened over the crackling of the fire for his foe. He had a feeling that he was still alive. Ruby eyes looked around, his hair waving in the wind, as sparks danced around his figure worshiping its master.

Eyes glancing back at the tree a few yards in front of him, he felt a pang of guilt in his heart for it. He loved trees and nature; he even went out of his way to help protect them and Yusuke when he was being attacked by Sniper. The wind picked up the fire, carrying it higher into the branches and to other neighboring trees. He would have to snuff out the fires when he is done with his battle, or else he could destroy this forest.

Hiei gasped, as he heard the shuffling of grass behind him, and barely had enough time to turn around before a figure lunged at him. It was so quick, as his body was pushed back until he connected with the hard oak that he was just looking at seconds before. His vision swam in darkness, barely making out the same golden eyes that he thought he killed. This was not good, how could he be so defenseless like this? "Sh-Shit…!" He managed to mumble before a clawed hand wrapped around his throat, restricting his breathing, not that he wasn't already knocked out of breath from hitting the tree.

A snarl rose from the taller wolf-demon, as his shinning teeth were licked by a disgusting purple tongue. His glowing golden eyes narrowed, as he squeezed tighter onto the pale throat, making a gargling noise rise from the trapped youkai. Hiei reached up to grab at the arm with both hands, desperately raising his ki to burn the limb that held him.

He grit his teeth as the hand squeezed even tighter around his throat, closing his airway completely. Darkness started to creep into the corners of his vision, as lightheadedness started to cloud his mind. The longer he remained deprived of oxygen, the weaker his ki became, as his grip onto the furred arm loosened. Not that the mortal flame seemed to be doing any damage, this fur seemed to be a form of defense against both heat and cold.

Hiei's legs dangled worthlessly against the tree's trunk, as he just noticed that he was suspended by the clawed arm that held him in place. He was trapped. Lidded ruby eyes looked up into those glowing eyes one last time, as he saw his fate being sealed by the other clawed hand rising, blocking out the moonlight. The fire-demon, on the verge of fainting, closed his eyes to try and relish in the last moments of life, before this creature would rip him to shreds.

The sound of flesh tearing ripped through the air, making the already weakened demon flinch, as blood splattered over his face and body. Surprisingly, the pain did not come. It was silent, and a gust of wind blew through his hair, ruffling it before stilling. The clawed hand around his throat loosened. "What…?"

Managing a gasp of air through the still tightened fist, Hiei opened his eyes, first lidded then widening at what he saw. Golden eyes stared back at him in shock, blood dripping onto the ground in a rhythmic beat. Clearing the momentary darkness that threatened to take hold of him, auburn eyes blinked looking over the creature once again. The claw that threatened to kill him, still remained high in the air, unmoving, until he saw the culprit. A thick sword-like projectile was punctured through the wolf's skull, between his eyes.

The sound of flesh slicing filled the air once again, as the sword pulled out. Hiei could have sworn that he saw another pair of golden eyes through the creatures head, visibly by the new hole in his forehead. The wolf fell with the momentum of the sword as it was yanked out from behind him, and landed on his back. Hiei sighed in relief as he felt the clawed hand release his throat, his body slumping down to the ground. He took a deep breath in, closing his eyes to concentrate on getting the precious oxygen back into his lungs.

"Hiei! Are you alright?!"

That voice, it sounded so familiar. Once he managed to get his breath back, the first thing that came to his senses was smell. Wrapping both arms around his stomach, the fire-youkai shivered as overpowering scent of a male enveloped him. It made it even worse when the male that saved him knelt beside his trembling form. Why was he so affected by the scent of males? It didn't make any sense!

"Hiei, are you hurt?"

An arm wrapped around his shoulder, forcing him to bite back a moan from the contact. With a lidded gaze, Hiei looked up at his savior, the scent of a familiar friend wafted through his mind. The first thing that he saw, was a figure dressed in darkness, only the moonlight giving off a few key features that signaled who this man was. The most visible of them all, were those emerald green irises.


The Fox demon sighed in relief to hear the fire-demon give a response, anything at all. His heart nearly stopped when he smelt fire deep within the woods and knew that it had to be Hiei. He wasn't far off the trail, but that made a huge beacon of energy and smell that covered over the scent of pheromones that he was following before.

Luckily, he had made it in time to see a demonic wolf strangling his friend against a burning tree. Now the flames were died down, possibly in response to Hiei's current condition, the fire was a part of him. The Youko within broke free for a split second, as he pulled out a weed and transformed it to a sharp weapon. He was sure that if he had been seconds late, Hiei would have been killed.

Now that the adrenaline was calming, his body was now responding to the injured demon leaning against the tree. The scent of blood was thick in the air and a surge of the need to protect and tend to the little half-koorime came to the front of his mind. With careful eyes, he looked over the shaking figure for any signs of injury. Green eyes darted upwards at the bark of the tree to see a line of blood trailing down to where Hiei sat. "You are injured. Let me see."

Hiei couldn't hold back a groan, as his right arm was lifted and moved away. Careful fingers traced the reddened bandages over his stomach, making the smaller demon hitch in breath and move his head away. A light panting made those emerald eyes glance up to the others face, before reluctantly letting go. The pheromones were getting stronger.

"Ah, damn-it!"

Green molded to gold, as Kurama rushed to cover any visibility over Hiei with his own body, facing the opponent that interrupted him. A feral growl left his throat at the sound of the approaching opponent who would dare try and take Hiei away from him. The Youko wouldn't allow anyone near. All he could comprehend was another male's scent inching nearer, which meant a challenge that he would gladly take.

"I guess ya won, Fox-boy. You just got lucky! I'll get'em next time, though." A slick-haired man stood with his arms crossed a few feet away from the couple sitting on the ground. A rush of hormonal anger attacked his pride for not being the first to find the stubborn demon. He couldn't believe that he lost. However, it seemed reasonable since he didn't have such a developed sense of smell as the Fox; he thought he could still try anyway.

"Yusuke!?" Immediately, Kurama melded back into his normal form, gold rushing back to green. He was just about to attack the other demon; it seemed that Hiei's scent was really getting to him. "Next time please do not sneak up on us. I was just about to attack you." Perhaps that is just what the leader wants him to do; to initiate a challenge for Hiei.

Chocolate colored eyes looked down at the dead wolf-demon, then back to his teammates, mostly concentrated on the smaller male. Even with his untrained nose, he could smell out blood on Hiei's body. Even with the pheromones affecting him, a need to protect and nurture overpowered the need to mate. The fire-youkai was injured and needed to be healed.

Walking over to them, he noticed that the poor little demon was shaking uncontrollably. This was probably due to the scent of the males around him, and his body was responding to it. Making sure to walk to the other side of Hiei, not near Kurama, he knelt down and rested his elbows on his knees. Being this close, he could smell the pheromone better, but it was covered up with the scent of pain. "Nice to see ya up, Squirt. But I didn't expect you to run off the minute you woke up."

Hiei shook even more violently when the second male came close to him. He hardly noticed him there after the Fox's initial protection maneuver. Even through his fogged mind, he responded to the detective with a low growl. He needed to be alone. His body was acting strangely, like at this moment. He tried to play it off, by being cool and saying his usual catchphrase, "hn…"

"Yusuke is right, Hiei. What you did was a bit foolish. You could have been killed if I hadn't made it in time to save you." Kurama said with a low voice, ripping open the bandages wrapped around the shaky demon. Pulling out a seed from his hair, he flared his ki, before dropping it to the ground. It sprouted into a beautiful blue flower. Since the wound wasn't bleeding profusely, there was no need for the previous plant that he used yesterday.

Dipping his fingers into the middle of the flower, a sticky, sappy, purple fluid stuck to his fingertips. "This might tingle a bit, but it will help stop the pain." He warned, before applying it to the largest wound on the youkai. Hiei was not bleeding to death, but he could easily smell the pain that came from his body. Before, the fire-demon had nearly died of blood loss, and when he reopened his wound, he had to stop it immediately. This plant was just made to stop the pain that it came into contact with.

Small hands gripped the grass below, legs quivering at the feeling of the immense and shocking sensation that surrounded his abdomen. His head dipped down, as he concentrated on breathing, letting out a soft groan as a cold feeling rushed past his body. After the initial shock of it, the pain slowly seeped away into a cool and numbing touch.

Yusuke blinked at the groan, tilting his head and leaning down to look closer at the smaller demon. It took everything in his power not to rub his face into those soft locks of hair, or against that heated neck with a soft purr. It would be a sign of comfort that he would offer, but with Kurama there, he would possibly retaliate. Getting into a fight so close to Hiei wasn't the best idea; he could get caught in the crossfire. "Alright, Pipsqueak, let's get you back to Grandma's. I'll carry him."

Kurama shook his head, "No, I insist, I'll carry him." Loosening his ki, the plant receded into a small seed once more, and he placed it back in the safety of his hair.

Dark brown eyes narrowed, "Nah, it's alright. I got this. Besides, you're probably tired from fighting that wolf. I'll carry him." He stated, reaching for the dazed demon.

The Fox growled deeply in his throat, catching both Hiei's and Yusuke's attention. This stopped him in his tracks, recoiling back from touching the heated demon. The fire-youkai shook at the sound of the dominant male, while the detective's ki flared in response. "I am not weakened by this little fight. I will carry him back."

A show of fangs glittered in the moonlight, as another growl emitted into the air. Yusuke glared back into those green eyes, just daring for him to move. "I already said, I'll carry him."

Hiei frowned, glancing between the two angered demons. Why were they so caught up on who will carry him back to the temple? He can walk, they should know. "Don't I have a say in this?" He asked.

"No!" Green and brown eyes darted to the fire-demon, making him jump, before going back to staring down each other.

His scowl only deepened, as his left eye twitched in irritation. "Fine, while you two fight over such a ridiculous topic, I'm leaving." He said before pulling his legs up from underneath him to help him stand, using the tree as support. As he stood, however, both the redhead and the raven-haired male stood as well. With another "hn" Hiei started to slowly walk off towards the temple, gripping an arm around his abdomen.

Walking past the fired up Detective, he blinked as he felt a hand wrap around his free arm. "Where do ya think you're goin'?" The mere touch sent his body back into those involuntary shivers, once again. Glancing over his shoulder, he took notice that Yusuke had a firm hold on his small wrist, while keeping his eye contact with the Fox.

"Release him, Yusuke…" Kurama warned, his energy flaring dangerously. Those malicious emerald eyes fading into the Youko's gold. Yusuke was touching Hiei without his consent. The inner Fox demon wanted to rip off the leaders arm in retaliation, but held back.

Ruby eyes glanced down to the fist that held him, following his arm up to the detectives head. Swallowing thickly, he tried to calm the way his body heated up just from the mere touch. "The Fox is right, Detective. If you want to keep your arm intact, I suggest you let me go." His voice was smooth, still trying to put up the tough guy act. He didn't want anyone to see that he was slowly losing control of himself.

The air was quite, only a small gust of wind blew by the trio, ruffling their hair until it stilled. Hiei's gaze never left his leader that still had a firm grasp on his wrist. The Toushin never left the line of sight from the redhead just a few feet away from him. The minute someone would move, there would be hell to face.

"Hey guys! I finally found you-!"

Yusuke quickly pulled Hiei back behind him, making sure to keep a firm grip to keep him from slipping away. His other fist glowed with the pending shotgun technique to any attacker who would dare interrupt his current challenge. He was sure that his ki would have scared off any incoming pests.

Hiei stumbled, only managing to stay standing from the Toushin's hold on him, as he was yanked behind the taller male. A blush rushed up his face at the feeling of being controlled so easily. It was unbelievable that he could be tossed around like this. He guaranteed that when he was feeling completely better, he would vow to kill the detective once again. He hardly heard why he suddenly felt the need to protect him.

Kurama immediately pulled his attention away from Yusuke and to their newest foe. Fighting each other can wait, he was sure that Hiei wouldn't be harmed since he was held by the strong demon beside him. Although, a feeling of anger rushed through his body at the knowledge that he still had a hold of the fire-youkai.

Blinking his golden eyes back to green, the Fox pulled an arm in front of their leader to stop his attack, looking at who had interrupted them. "Kuwabara?" It was dark, but that rough and scratchy voice was unmistakable.

The said redhead froze in place, his hands held in the air showing his innocence. "Hehe… H-Hey guys…! Looks like ya found the Runt…" He said slowly and carefully, making sure not to scare Urameshi into using that shotgun blast on him. Walking up to them slowly, he could easily feel the tension of energy in the air. Something was about to go down before he said something, he was glad that he managed to find them in time.

Now that they were distracted, Hiei placed his other arm around the wrist of the hand the held him in place and yanked it off. He was free, but the sudden momentum of the movement made him stumble and fall back. "Curse my weak body…!" Closing his eyes for the incoming pain of his fall, he was sure to land on a few open wounds, once again the pain didn't come.

It was so fast, he didn't even notice it. Slowly opening his eyes, ruby red stared back into chocolate brown. Blinking, he looked around and noticed that he was suspended in the air by two strong arms, one under his upper back, and the other under his knees. He didn't even feel himself get caught by the strong Toushin.

"Ya gotta be more careful, Squirt. You don't wanna injure yourself more, eh?" Hiei's eyes widened at the strange tone that came from Yusuke. It sounded like something that he usually would say, but the tone sounded way off, a deep and low rumble instead of his happy pitch. His body caught up with his brain, as he started to tremble once again, this time a dizzying feeling nearly knocked him out. Closing his eyes, he took a few breaths in to calm himself, reaching up to grip at the Detectives shirt unconsciously.

"Hey, is he ok?" Kuwabara asked with sincerity, watching how the littlest demon in their group was, literally, falling apart in their leaders hands. His breathing sped up dramatically, and he was shaking even worse than he has ever seen him. What was wrong with him?

Kurama had to grit his teeth to keep from lashing out at the other, he could harm Hiei accidentally. Being so close to the taller male, he could smell the pheromones that radiated off the small demon becoming stronger. This had to stop, or else Yusuke could lose control. The tone of his voice was just another warning sign. "Kuwabara. I need you to carry Hiei back to Genkai's. Please."

The tallest redhead moved his gaze over to the spoken male with a curious view. An eyebrow lifted in confusion. "Uh… But Urameshi is carrying him…" He didn't want to get in-between the two demons, afraid that the same tension as before would spark into something. Yusuke looked completely content into carrying the smaller demon, even if Hiei looked like he was going to fall to pieces.

As calmly as he could, Kurama spoke softly to the tense Toushin. "Yusuke, please relinquish your hold on Hiei, and hand him over to Kuwabara." The tone sounded dangerous, the same as when he would be speaking with an enemy. It made shivers go down Kazuma's spine. He had to make sure that if Yusuke would run off, he would be ready to give chase.

Chocolate irises blinked slowly and moved up from looking down at the demon in his arms. Looking over at the clearly irritated redhead over to the confused one, then back to those green orbs. The scent of Hiei's heat had clouded his mind the minute he caught the smaller demon. The last thing he wanted to do was to let go. However, just from the sound of the redhead, he knew that if he were to try and run, he would be attacked regardless of who he carried.

A stuttered moan came from the fire-youkai, immediately catching everyone's attention. He was sweating, and trying to hold back his sounds by biting his bottom lip with eyes clenched shut. A hormonal rush of protection sprouted in Yusuke's veins, making him grip harder onto the spiky-haired shorty in his arms. He took a deep breath in, savoring that wonderful scent that made him want to leap onto the poor half-koorime, then letting it out slowly.

Walking over slowly to the timid redhead, Urameshi stopped in front of him, moving his terrorizing gaze over to Kazuma. Lifting Hiei away from his body, he didn't say a word as he kept his eyes locked onto those gray ones.

Blinking, Kuwabara slowly reached for the shaky demon in his friends grasp, moving his own eyes away from those frightening eyes and to the Runt's face. Positioning his arms under the body, he made sure to get as close to the other side of Hiei, so that he would be closely pressed against his body as possible. Although, the Toushin didn't release the Fire-demon just yet, still gripping tightly onto his body like a lifeline. "If you drop him… I won't be afraid to kill you…"

Kazuma's eyes widened at the threat, looking up at his friend, almost making that fatal mistake when Yusuke dropped in in his arms. He stumbled a bit, but managed a strong hold onto the tiny demon, with a sigh of relief. Once situated, he glanced over at the other redhead to notice the same menacing glare that Yusuke had. It seems that both of them were very serious on Yusuke's threat. Swallowing thickly, Kuwabara slowly made his way around the two clearly stressed demons and started his trek back to Genkai's temple.

He could feel both of their glares digging into his back, making another shiver go up his spine. Luckily, they didn't follow him back just yet, which helped to relief some of the tense stress that he had to keep the Fire-demon safely secured. "What the hell is wrong with those guys…?" He whispered to no one in particular. He noticed that Hiei's eyes were closed and his shaking has gone down tremendously to just momentary shivers. The sweat was thinning out, and his body heat was slowly returning to normal. That harsh panting was lengthening out to normal breaths, although it didn't stop completely.

"I-It's probably me…" The voice nearly made Kazuma jump, almost dropping the body in his arms. "C-Careful y-you f-fool!" Gray eyes looked down to see lidded glowing ruby's staring back at him. He thought that Hiei had passed out, but he was wrong.

"H-Hiei! Uh… Sorry." He was startled to see the smaller male awake after something like that. He was sure that he was attacked by that dead wolf-demon he saw earlier. Shaking off his apology, he continued his steady walk back to the temple. "What did ya mean by 'it was probably you?' It's not your fault that Urameshi has territorial issues…" He nearly growled out, hating that the leader actually scared him with his death threat.

As much as he hated the giant oaf, he was grateful that he was being carried. He was sure that if Yusuke hadn't stopped him he would have probably collapsed a few yards away just from exhaustion. "Something is wrong with me… I don't understand what it could be…" The scent of another male was still swimming around in his head, but it wasn't as powerful as before. This was a human, and it probably didn't affect him as badly than with a demon.

Kuwabara nodded, trying to come up with a solution in head, but couldn't think of anything. "Maybe you can ask Genkai?" His rough voice rang through the silent forest, making the smaller male look up from his daze. "I've noticed that you seem much sicker than you appear to be, but I don't know what could be wrong with you."

Taking advantage of the leisure, Hiei rested his head against the strong chest letting out a soft sigh. A headache was starting to form at his temples. It irritated him that he had to be carried by the Baka, once again; he would complain, but he just didn't have the energy to. "I don't feel sick. I just feel… abnormal…"

Kazuma nearly laughed at the confused youkai, but refrained from it. "You got that right, Shorty. Do you remember earlier today when you were so boiling hot you managed to singe Urameshi?" It was a moment of worry, but now it seemed like a distant memory even though it only happened today.

Managing a glare, Hiei looked up at the man carrying him, and growled out lowly. "You mentioned something like that before…" He remembered, right before he left the Idiot said something like that before he left for the woods. "What did you mean by it?"

Gray eyes blinked, looking down at the demon in his arms, shocked. "How could you not remember?" He could have sworn that Hiei was conscious the entire time they bathed him. "Well, you suddenly latched onto Urameshi, and then we had to throw you in an ice-cold bath to cool you down because you were burning up so badly that you were even hurting him!" He didn't mean to sound like he was accusing him of a crime, but it just surprised him that he couldn't remember something like that.

Ruby eyes widened, than narrowed as they darted off to the side in embarrassment. "I had no control of my body…" How he couldn't remember that also surprised him, too. He would definitely remember clinging onto the Detective and then being thrown into a cold bath. He hated to be cold. "I didn't mean it…" Now he felt a bit bad for something that he didn't intend to do. He didn't mean to hurt Yusuke, he was just probably trying to help him and he attacked him without warning.

Kuwabara knew that he hit a soft spot in the stone-hard demon he was holding. Now the guilt radiated off of him, permeating into his own self-consciousness. "Aww, come on half-pint. I know you didn't mean it. Urameshi knows it too, it was clear to us that you couldn't control yourself." He shouldn't have said anything, but at least he knows something else that could be a symptom of his current condition.

"Hn…" The fire-demon said coolly, folding his arms and looking away, ignoring the small blush that crept up his neck. This conversation was over in his opinion. There was no way he would admit to the Oaf that he was right.

The awkward silence crept in over the two; the only sound was the footsteps that Kuwabara took, as they made their way through the forest. It didn't bother the three-eyed demon in the slightest, but it did seem to make the redhead squirm a bit, it was quite amusing.

"Oh yeah! I forgot something!" Red eyes widened as he looked over at the other male from the outburst, then narrowed when nothing was wrong, giving out a low growl in response. He already had a headache, yelling only made it worse. The Baka stopped, and somehow managed to keep the demon airborne with one hand, as he used the other to dig around in his pockets.

Looking up he concentrated to try and find what he was looking for in his long white jacket pockets. The sound of the little black gems clanked together, as he rummaged through it, managing a small "Aha!" as he pulled out what he was looking for.

A thin black eyebrow lifted in confusion when a small plastic-wrapped object was dropped on his stomach, his entire body shifting to allow Kuwabara to regain his normal hold on him. He still didn't continue walking, but smiled down at the curious demon. Hiei blinked, as he lifted the small plastic thing to get a better look at it. "What is this?" He asked.

"It's a sandwich, Tiny. I brought it for you. You're probably starving." Kuwabara said with a wider smile.

Hiei felt a tinge of a weird feeling build in his heart at the caring Buffoon, which he would deny to his dying day. With another "Hn…" he actually felt hungry when he mentioned that. He does remember that he hasn't eaten at all since he came here, but that didn't make him want to eat whatever food came his way. He was an S class demon; he could survive days without eating. "I don't want it-…" He said as he was just about to chuck it to the side.

"-Yukina made them."

Hiei paused, gripping tighter onto the wrapped food so it wouldn't fall from his hand. Yukina? His entire body responded immediately to the word of his twin sister, his hunger spiking suddenly. Of course the minute that he found out that his sister had slaved over making this piece of food, he would never turn down such an offer. He loved her and felt that he would disrespect her if he were to just toss aside something that she had made.

"Bingo… Damn, I've got to stop hangin' around Boton so much…" Kuwabara thought, as he saw the fire-demon pull the food back to his chest, almost cradling it. This only helped to confirm his suspicions of Hiei being related to the ice-maiden that he had before. The little fire-brat never respected anyone, other than Kurama and Yusuke, but when it came to Yukina he always seemed to respect her the most.

"Hn…" He growled out, ripping open the plastic wrap and throwing it to the ground, not caring about his littering habits. "Fine… You're just lucky that I feel a bit hungry…" He said before taking a bite of the sandwich. It was delicious. He wasn't sure if it was because it was made by his sister, or that he was just really hungry, but it still made his taste-buds tingle.

Now that he was satisfied with his answer, Kazuma resumed his walking with a smile on his face. A short chuckle left his lips as he watched the smaller demon eat the sandwich like it was the last piece of food on earth. "You must really love your sister, don't-cha?" He whispered out in a low and rough voice covered in a caring tone.

Ruby eyes darted open wide when he heard what the Oaf had just said. Was he just imagining it? His airway was one again, blocked off by a piece of food that suddenly was jammed in his throat. He let out a choking sound, as his eyes clenched closed to try and swallow the food that threatened to kill him.

Kuwabara laughed as he pulled the smaller demon upwards and pressed him against his chest, making sure that his head was over his shoulder as he patted his back to help him swallow. He knew that it wasn't funny that his friend was choking, but it still made him laugh to see his assumption was now completely correct. Hiei was Yukina's lost brother.

Tears gathered at his closed eyes, as he finally managed to choke down the piece of food with the aid of the other's hand tapping against his back. Taking a few breaths in and coughing for good measure, Hiei reached an arm to his eyes to rub away the tears before they would spill over and solidify. "Wh-What did you just say!?" He demanded, as the hand that was on his back now rubbed in small circles, in a comforting fashion.

"Nothin' Small-fry. Just hang tight, we are almost at Genkai's, alright?" He said after his initial giggling. He could feel that they were getting close to the temple grounds. The little black pearls in his pocket felt a bit heavier thanks to the knowledge that he had confirmed. It didn't bother him at all. He knew that he would have to give into telling Yukina the truth sooner or later, and with these rare tear-gems, they could be a happy family.

Hiei growled angrily, folding his arms on the man's shoulder to rest his chin on, as the Oaf held him tighter. He knew that he didn't imagine the Baka saying that. There was no way that he knew that Yukina was his sister, right? With a yawn, he slowly closed his eyes planning to just rest his eyes on the way there. The hand on his back was also surprisingly soothing enough to lull him into a light slumber. "When I get better… I'm going to kill you…" He threatened with a tired voice.

Kuwabara scoffed off the threat, knowing that it was just his automatic defense kicking in since he didn't have anything else to say at the moment. Score one for Kazuma Kuwabara!

Chapter 4: Shocking News


"Master Genkai, we have something to ask of you. It is about Hiei, and we were wondering if you would assist us in this dilemma." Kurama asked kindly to the pink-haired elder.

Yusuke and Kurama both sat across a small table from the wise Sensei. They had both been discussing matters about Hiei and what could be causing these strange scents to be emitting from him. They are not very strong, and they can only be noticed by the Fox demon if they are in the same room. Yusuke has to be near him in order to pick up on the strange scents.

Since that moment where the leader unconsciously expressed his dominance over the little fire-demon, the Fox couldn't let his guard down. If Hiei had been awake, surely, he would have let his instincts take over and given a growl back, and perhaps a nip in warning. Even the scent from yesterday expressed that his body wasn't ready for such a move, hence the reason why Kurama had retained his control. However, Yusuke is still a newborn demon. He can't seem to control himself when such a noticing smell hits him.

Night has come to this cold day of confusion. The one thing that Kurama hates to be. He just couldn't understand why Hiei was like this. It possibly was from his injuries, but it seemed unlikely now. "Yeah, Grandma, he has a really weird smell comin' off of him." Spoke up, Yusuke, folding his arms in frustration.

It was easy to tell that the scent seemed to affect his mood a bit. Strangely, he seemed more agitated than normal. Ever since he has gotten a good whiff of that smell, his entire bodily instincts told him to go back to one who was emitting that scent. Why, he had no idea. "You dimwit. If he smells funny, then give him a bath." Yusuke blushed, and pouted at his answer.

Deciding that Yusuke's description wasn't deep enough, the redhead spoke up. "Genkai-sama, this estranged scent is somehow affecting me and Yusuke. Earlier today, his bodily temperature was so high, we literally had to put him in ice water to cool him down, yet the smell still lingered." The Fox demon was centuries old, but never in his days has he encountered a problem like this before.

Lifting her herbal tea to her lips, she sipped it and set it back down. "I can't smell anything, but I did feel his ki. It seems that the smell is only affecting demons. Not only that, but demons of high class. Yukina said that she didn't smell anything. Hiei is a level S class, and so are you two." She had a feeling that she already knew what was wrong, but she had to confirm it before she said anything.

Putting a finger to his chin, Yusuke pondered over what his teacher said. "Yeah, now that you mention it, Kuwabara said something about that earlier to Kurama, remember?" He turned to his redheaded friend in question.

"Yes. It seems that humans with strong spirit energy have the ability to sense something." Nodding, the Fox demon darted his gaze to his teammate and then over to the calm elder across the table.

Opening her eyes, she looked over at the intelligent one of the two. "What do you feel when that scent hits you? Be honest with me, don't sugar coat it." She asked seriously, expecting both to answer her.

Kurama spoke first. "Truthfully, Youko scratches at the surface of my consciousness. With years of patience, I manage to pull him back enough not to let him out. I am afraid that he might do harm to Hiei." It was the truth, although he did cover up a few things.

"Hmph! Well, when I smelt it I could hardly think straight." He remembers holding the little half-koorime close and practically blacking out when he was trying to smell what Kurama was asking him about.

A short laugh came from Genkai, as she sipped her tea once again. "How is that different than any other day?" She scoffed, enjoying the angry scowl that covered her students face.

"Hey, you old hag, I was just telling you the truth! It almost felt similar to when I was fighting Sensui and he took over without my permission!" Yusuke still remembers how angry he was that he was robbed of his chance to take down the bastard that killed him. Now, it is happening again, this time with his teammate Hiei. Hopefully, his demon side doesn't want to hurt him.

With a sigh, Genkai stood to get some more tea for herself, as she listened in on the two boy's problems. Sadly, her suspicions were being confirmed, this wasn't good. Sitting down with a new cup of tea, she sipped it. "As I suspected… The little Fire-brat is in danger."

Kurama blinked, worry etched across his features. "Danger? What could possibly be wrong with him?" The urge to rush back to check on the little demon rushed through his brain, but he held himself back. Hiei was strong, even in his weakened state, he could care for himself.

"The scent that both of you can smell will only become stronger within the next few days. Even with your calm demeanor Kurama, you can't hold back your Youko. Dimwit, on the other hand, he will cave in faster than you. I'd give it a day." She spoke with an unusual serious tone that sent shivers up the others spines.

Leaning forward with the same angry face as before, Yusuke barked "What do you mean by that?! I know how to control myself! I ain't gonna kill Hiei or anything! He's my friend!" Anger rushed through the flare of ki that he emitted. How dare she accuse him of putting Hiei in danger!

Rolling her eyes at her idiotic student, Genkai continued "Of course you won't kill him, moron! However, it seems that you have already been changed by the smell." Turning to the redhead her volume lowered.

"The danger that currently poses a threat to Hiei is that his scent will attract demons that are at his level, and even higher. You two, subconsciously, don't want to kill him. Don't think that those who come after him for the scent think the same. They will try anything to get to Hiei. Thankfully, since he is in the ningenkai it won't attract the low level demons that are here. Although, give it a week, and I guarantee that it will be powerful enough to permeate into the demon world." With her speech concluded, she sipped her tea once again.

This shut the two boys up, but at the same time, even more questions sprung through their minds. "Then how do we get rid of it, Genkai-sama? The scent was the strongest when he was nearly burning with a horrid fever." He could have sworn that if he didn't do anything then, Hiei would have surely boiled himself alive from how hot he was.

"Hmph." The sensei smirked. Even Kurama was stumped, this was funny. "There is only one way to get rid of it. However, you were smart to throw him into a cold bath, but it only postponed the inevitable." She wondered how long it would take for them to realize what was truly wrong with their friend; she guessed that Kurama would guess it first.

"Alright! That's it! Stop beating around the bush, Genkai, and just tell us what is wrong with him!" No one was going to hurt Hiei, if he had anything to say about it. He'd face the entire demon race just to try and protect his friends. Yusuke was at his wits end, and he was getting frustrated from this conversation. He wanted to know what was wrong with the youkai and he wanted to know now.

With a smirk, she sipped her tea, loving the reactions coming from her student. She loved pissing him off more than anything that is how he became stronger under her watch. "Well, if you are so curious… The scent that is coming off of the Fire-brat happens to be pheromones." Taking a glance at both of the boys, Kurama's eyes widened with knowing, while Yusuke's only narrowed in confusion.

"Ph-Pheromones…? Th-Then that means… Oh god…" Kurama stuttered, not believing the possibility of it all. Now it made sense. How Yusuke acted when in contact with Hiei, how his own demon-self wanted to break free. Even when the little demon grew hot, it all came together. A guilty feeling washed over the Fox; the poor half-koorime must have felt awful when being thrown into those freezing waters.

Darting his chocolate gaze between the pink-haired teacher and his redheaded friend, Yusuke felt completely out of the loop. "What the hell is going on here?! I don't get it! What is a Pheromone? Why is Hiei giving it off like that?!" The worried look on Kurama's face didn't help ease the horrid feeling in his gut that something was terribly wrong with his little demon. Was Hiei going to die? "Tell me, damn-it!"

Laughing at her moronic student's incapability to learn simple sex-ed., Genkai shook her head deciding to finalize it once and for all. "Hiei is going through his first Heat."

~ O ~

Deep auburn eyes opened slowly, taking a moment to realize where he was. His body felt sluggish, and tired. He felt generally exhausted for no reason, and extraordinarily overheated. Pushing the blankets off of him, he pulled himself to sit up with a groan of effort, raising a hand to his head to help calm his aching temples.

Sound didn't register to him, but another body knelt beside him, he could feel their heat. It wasn't until he felt contact, a hand on his shoulder, did he respond with a low moan. Everything that touched him felt a million times more sensitive. He couldn't remember anything since the night before when Kurama was cleaning his wounds. "Hiei?" It was a soft voice, one that rang with familiarity.

Managing the strength, the said demon lifted his head and opened his eyes wider to look at who was touching him. Blue hair tied back by a red ribbon caught his eye first, and then those same colored eyes stared back at him. "Yukina…?" Was all he could muster. She smiled kindly at him at the mention of her name.

He noticed her mouth was moving, but he couldn't register what she was saying, and she was looking somewhere else, as if calling over to someone. The feeling of another body sat at the other side of him, and it made him shiver at the scent. This was a male, and it shocked him how much it made his body heat up just from being near him even though he hasn't even looked over at him yet.

He heard his name once again, as he closed his eyes to try and calm his body down. What was happening to him? Why was he acting like this, it made him mad, but most of all it brought a sense of fear that he'd never experience before. He felt vulnerable. Was he sick? Kurama had mentioned something about his temperature going up when he spoke with him last.

"Hey, Hiei, what's wrong? Ya cold or something'?" The raspy voice spoke softly, as he reached out to grab the small demon. He was shaking, and his energy was going out of control. It didn't make sense.

The minute the other male in the room touched him, Hiei jerked, eyes snapping open and widening with fear and a different emotion that he didn't understand. Strangely, his mind was going a million miles a second, while his body was slack without any resistance. He gasped sharply, when he was pressed against a warm chest pulling his hands out to brace himself against it.

Then his other senses were floating in, smell. Just by the scent, he could immediately tell that it was his rival/teammate Kuwabara. Why was he holding him? Why was he reacting like this towards this idiotic human? He is stronger than him. "Wow, Hiei, you're really warm… Now, don't go burnin' me up like you did to Urameshi."

What did he say? What did he mean by that? Hiei wouldn't harm Yusuke, unless they were fighting. Even so, he knew that he had never beaten the strong detective, and now possibly never will. Pulling himself away, Hiei shook his head, palms flat against the broad chest he was against. "Why are you holding me…? You oaf…" He managed to say with an incredibly weak voice.

The redhead blinked at the insult, but it seemed hollow by the way he said it. It was like he didn't mean any of it. "Well, look at you Hiei! You are shaking so badly, and your energy is acting funny! Not only that, you look horrible!" It was true. The little shrimp looked like he was about to collapse again. He was still as pale as ever, but with that strange blush that covered his cheeks and neck. Not to mention, he was really hot to the touch but he was shaking like he was cold.

Yukina looked on at the little fire-demon with sad eyes. She had no idea what could be wrong with him. She could feel a fluctuation in energy, but other than that, she couldn't decipher anything. "Hiei, are you hungry? I made some sandwiches earlier if you would like some." She asked. The ice-maiden felt sorry for him.

He had to find a way to escape. He had to get out of here. That soft voice chimed in once again, instincts immediately responding to his blood sister as he turned to look at her with identical eyes. He shook his head. No, he wasn't hungry at all. He could last for days without eating. His body was after a different kind of craving and it scared him.

Pulling himself away from the warmth of the tall redhead, Hiei reluctantly pulled himself away from the comforting body. He shook more violently, bracing his hands on the floor to hold up his upper body. Taking a deep breath, the youkai pulled his legs up to help bring himself to a stand. Stumbling a bit, he slowly made his way to the doors that lead outside, ignoring the protests from both Yukina and the Baka.

The door slid open to reveal the cool night air on his heated skin, it felt nice. Before he could step out, he felt a body press into his back and arms wrap around his waist, picking him up. Eyes widening then snapping shut, he let out an involuntary moan, as he gripped at the arms around him. "I don't think so, Squirt! You ain't goin' out there by yourself! You're in no condition!"

It was maddening. The force of another male's body heat against his back sent his mind to spiral until he thought of nothing. His instincts told him to not fight back and allow the strong male behind him to do whatever he wished. The heat in his own body jumped at the mere touch of his arms around his sensitive waist.

However, Hiei, as instinctual as he is, decided to go against whatever they told him at this moment. Gripping the arms tighter, he forced all of his energy into his palms to burn whatever they touched. He heard the man behind him yell out and the arms unraveled themselves from his waist, along with the body behind him.

The Fire-youkai was dropped to the ground, almost falling to his knees from the force, as he flitted off into the darkened woods surrounding the temple. He heard his name being called after him from both his sister and the Oaf. It brought a pang of guilt in his heart to hear her cry after him, as he made his way deeper into the dark forest. He had to be alone.

~ O ~

Yusuke paced in his room at the temple grounds, walking back and forwards in a six foot stretch of floor. A hand under his chin in thought, while the other was tightened behind his back, his mind would not calm. "Hiei is in heat…" The thought repeated itself over and over in his head. The more he thought it, the more his body yearned for the smaller demons company.

He felt like a caged animal, trapped in the iron bars of his own mind. Nothing was holding him back from seeking out the little half-koorime. It was just his own self. "What am I thinking? How would this affect me?" Hiei was strong enough to fend for himself. He didn't earn the S title for nothing.

A growl left his throat in frustration at his racing thoughts. Yes, he had to admit that the Fire-demon smelled good when he held him earlier that day. That doesn't mean that it would really affect him in such a way that he would lose all control and do something drastic.

Immediately after the old hag had said that sentence, Kurama had stood up and left without a word. That redhead was their intellect man, whenever he said something, he was sure to listen. Now, even the Fox looked completely broken, something that he has never seen before.

Of course, Yusuke knew what a "heat" is. It is almost the same thing that female dogs go through, right? At least it was the same concept, he supposed. He knew for a fact that dogs don't raise their temperature up so high that they burn anything that they touch, like what Hiei did. Maybe it was a thing that all demons go through, but why does this have to happen now? Something had to trigger the demons heat to start, he knew for a fact that over the years he's known him this has never happened before. What could have happened?

Hiei was perfectly fine before the last mission started; all he did was get hurt, and they brought him here to heal him. Yusuke's mind couldn't help but to keep folding back onto the time earlier today when he saw the demon after Kurama had been with him the night before. The way he was shaking, woke up, and then leaped on him. He knew that this was part of the "heat" that the poor little demon was going through, but it still didn't help in calming his body down.

That Fox must have done something to him the previous night. Could he have been the one to trigger the "heat" to start? Possibly, it could have been the Toushin Leader. He didn't hear anything remotely close to what happened when he asked Kurama how Hiei's condition was this morning. Everything started to tumble when his temperature was out of control and he was gripping tightly onto him like a lifeline.

This was a mystery that only made another growl leave the leaders throat in anger. He wanted to know how this whole thing started. Instinctually, he was told that it was himself that triggered the "heat" to start. That sent a rush of a shiver through his body to have that feeling, it felt wonderful. To have the feeling that he was the one to start this newest sensation to appear on the small demon.

He had to know who could have started this. If Kurama had, indeed, been the one to start it, then he was going to make sure that it would be finished by their leader. Stopping the constant pacing, Yusuke grinned deviously. "I guess I'll just go and find out for myself. Why not ask the guy in question who could have started this?" The thought motivated him to move, this time towards the object of his desires.

~ O ~

Unlike the pacing that their leader had been doing for the past couple of hours, Kurama had been sitting in his room, doing the same thing. The exact same feeling that, unbeknownst to him, was being felt by his teammate just a few doors down from his room. The same questions sprung in his mind, and the same feelings of confusion and the unknown.

Yes, he has heard of demons going into heat before. This doesn't exclude males at all; in fact he was sure that they experience it more than females in the Makai. The Youko has never experienced his own heat, but has met others who have gone through it. The least that could be said about it is that it is uncomfortable, but there was a lot more about it then what has been shown.

Hiei is a fire demon, who is part ice. Possibly one of the rarest of demons in existence. A forbidden child, the Imiko. Every demon has their own way of keeping their bloodlines intact and making sure that they survive. With Hiei, he is more than likely considered a broken link in his existence. He was not meant to be, he was supposed to die the day he was born, but miraculously survived.

The Youko was centuries old and only known of one other Imiko in his years. He had died soon after from being hunted, whether it was from suicide or being caught, he will never know. Now, another Imiko has lived and is still alive to this day, this was Hiei.

It was clear to know from Yukina that both humans and demons alike would hunt down their kind, mostly for their rare tear-gems known as hiruseki stones. Yes, on the black market, they were an utmost rare gem that the female ice-maidens produced, but they were worthless compared to the stones shed by an Imiko.

Kurama remembers on his long list of priceless artifacts and treasures to steal, the one thing that he could never seem to get was a tear from a male koorime. The fact that such a thing even existed was beyond real. Even the Youko knew of the rarity of the male koorime's and not only that but that they never shed tears.

This was strangely perplexing, because the redhead knew that he had seen the rarest of gems litter the floor when Hiei was breaking through with the first stage of heat. Why was he crying then? Was he in that much pain that it brought tears to his eyes? He knew that Hiei had gone through much worse in the past, but something as this would bring him to tears.

The wise Fox folded his fingers to cover his lips in thought and narrowed his eyes. Of course his breed was, possibly, the only in existence. Yet, why did his heat start now? Being male, he is unable to reproduce like his female counterpart. Every 100 years an ice-maiden becomes pregnant through asexual means and gives birth to a female child, unless impregnated from a male, such as in Hiei's case.

Kurama's only assumption was that his heat was supposed to attract a mate. A strong mate, one that would protect him and help keep his bloodline alive. It is strange, however, that the pheromones that he is producing seem to only be affecting males instead of females. This is perhaps only because the only two S class males in the vicinity are himself, and Yusuke. There are no other demon females near here with that kind of class. Would females even be affected at all?

His mind reeled at the thought, pulling himself back a bit. Now he had a hypothesis to why Hiei's heat had even begun, but that only left more questions unanswered. Like why had Hiei been shedding the Hiruseki stones? Maybe his subconscious knew of the attraction that his tear-stones had with other demons, and was another feature of his heat along with the pheromones.

Nature was an incredible thing. The scent that Hiei let off would attract strong demons for a possible mate. This would bring out any aggressive behavior and any that would possibly take up Hiei for a potential mate would ensue a fight with others that thought the same. The winner would claim their prize, and normally, they would just leave immediately after the coupling. That is when the tears would come into play.

The hiruseki stones would help create a cement place in Hiei's life, as a prolonged protector. Everyone knows of the rare male koorime tear-gems, and they would have an unlimited supply right at their fingertips. The demon would have a selfish need to protect the male koorime from harm, as it was simple. A dead male koorime couldn't produce any hiruseki stones, while an alive one could. This would immediately provide a protection for Hiei, until an even stronger demon would take its place, for the same reason.

Even with all of these assumptions, which seemed accurate, there was still one question that lingered on in the redhead's thoughts. Why had Hiei's heat started now of all times? Was it the situation? His near death experience? Or just a strange coincidence?

It could have been because of his near death experience that triggered his heat to start, but that seemed unlikely. Hiei had been through several crosses with death in his lifetime, how come he never started his heat until recently? He had even heard that when he was fighting one of Murkuro's elite guard the little fire-demon was completely sliced in half at the waist.*1

It could possibly be the situation that had occurred before. Hiei started to give off a strange smell when Kurama was bathing him and cleaning his wounds, although it wasn't nearly close to how it is now. Maybe he was just nervous at being bathed and nothing else. Thinking more deeply about it, however, made him assume that it wasn't just Kurama that helped start his heat, but also Yusuke and maybe even Kuwabara had an influence.

They were all strong fighters, and since he was injured so badly, his instincts took over. Without him noticing, his own body was sizing up the Fox, the leader, and Kazuma for a potential mate. Earlier in the day, Yusuke just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, since that was the moment when Hiei's body deemed it acceptable to begin looking for a mate.

Chances are that Hiei doesn't remember what happened to him when his heat first began. He was merely acting on pure instincts. The reason why the half-koorime leaped at Yusuke was possibly because of his scent. He happened to be the strongest demon near him and Hiei leaped at the chance to seek any sort of relief of his heat.

All of this left the Fox demon wondering, did Hiei even know what was happening to him? Probably not, since from all of the years of knowing him, he has ever experienced something like this before. He felt sorry for the poor youkai. Kurama could only imagine what he was feeling right now.

Sighing, the redhead stood up and walked out of his room. He was determined to explain to Hiei what his findings were and help calm him of any backlash that he may receive. He knew that the spark could easily set of a raging fire within the unstable demon. The half-koorime wouldn't take this news well, that, Kurama was sure of.

~ O ~

"Damn little Shrimp…!" Kazuma cursed under his breath as he held out his arms for Yukina to heal. Hiei had burned his skin to a dark red, but other than that he was fine. He had no idea what came over the tiny demon, although, he had a suspicion that grabbing him from behind wasn't the best idea in the world. Since earlier that day, he had seemed unstable and now he was out in Genkai's forest by himself. Not that he couldn't take care of himself, but it still brought a sense of worry that he could be killed out there.

Both Yukina and Kuwabara sat in the same room that Hiei had been resting before he darted off. They sat on the empty bed that once held the feisty fire-demon, but now was empty with ruffled sheets in place. "When my darling Yukina is finished, I will chase after that runt and drag him back her myself!"

Gray eyes blinked when he heard a door slide open, and turned to see their slick-haired leader walk in. Yusuke stopped in his tracks when he noticed someone missing. "Where's Hiei?" He asked, eyes still darting over the room to see if he had missed the shadowed figure. He had a sinking feeling in his gut that something was very wrong.

"Urameshi! You won't believe it! Hiei just ran off into the woods! I grabbed him to make him stop, but he burned me and then disappeared!" Now he felt awful for not containing the little half-koorime. He could only imagine how the kitsune would take it.


The sound of two voices rung high in the air, as Yusuke nearly yelled out his response with another who had just walked into the room. Kurama stood at the doorway, stunned to hear what had happened. "Hiei is out in the forest by his self?!"

The Toushin leader's demon blood nearly boiled with the knowledge of his fire-youkai in danger. He was in heat, and out there alone. He knew that the other demons that are lower class couldn't smell his scent, but it still didn't stop the fact that he was still injured. "I'm gonna go out to look for him! Don't wait up!" Yusuke said, his eyes flaring a deep copper color, stepping outside the same doors that he knew Hiei went through. His scent was like a small trail.

Kurama's eyes narrowed at the retreating back of their leader. Over the immense scent of Hiei's pheromones, it wasn't hard to pinpoint Yusuke's anger and worry. He knew that he had to get to Hiei first. With the raven-haired demon's ki being as unstable as it is, if he found Hiei first, there wouldn't be any doubt what he would do. Sadly, the fire-demon couldn't fight off Yusuke in his condition, he would probably submit.

"Yusuke, wait. I will search for him. I can track him easier, and if he is injured further I can heal him." Kurama spoke out, walking up to their angry leader, making him stop in the doorway leading outside. He swallowed thickly, as he watched him turn to face the redhead standing before him. His eyes were a menacing copper color, and it only expressed further what Kurama had suspected.

The Toushin took a step forward towards the Fox, making the other step back. "Is that a challenge…? Kurama?" He asked firmly, stating his power with a flare in ki. He was going to find Hiei first, if it was the last thing that he does, and no one was going to stand in his way.

Green glowed into gold at the offer. "Yusuke, I know of your intentions, consciously or not. I will not allow you to harm Hiei." His gaze never left the others, very serious about his decision. If he were to challenge his teammate for the Fire-demon, then so be it. Not that he wanted him for himself, but Urameshi wasn't thinking clearly, he was letting the pheromones blind him.

A short chuckle came from the raven-haired male. "Alrighty then. Hey, I like a good game. How's this. Whoever can find Hiei first is the winner, fair enough?" Right now, his demonic blood was rushing through his veins, and he wasn't thinking at the moment. All that he could register was that there was another demon after the same thing he was. A subconscious thought trickled through his blindness, stating that this was his friend. His comrade.

"I accept." Was the only response he gave, before he was gone in a flurry of pedals.

Kuwabara jumped up, "Hey! I wanna join in, too! That little brat is going to pay for burning me!" He hated to leave his precious Yukina behind, but he couldn't miss out on this challenge. He would find Hiei first and knock some sense into him for burning him earlier. In reality, he would probably just insult the little demon and then drag him back to the temple.

Yusuke was already gone when Kazuma said that he wanted to be a part of the search too. He didn't even see him leave! Eyes widened, as he looked around confused for a second, then anger as he dashed outside with the rest of his team. "Hey, you guys cheated! You had a head-start!" Yes, he wasn't a demon, and couldn't use smell to track down the runaway demon, but he did have his sixth sense to help him.

Yukina sat in shock as all three of the Urameshi team vanished one by one. Just from looking at how Kurama and Yusuke acted towards each other, she was sure that this was a dominant trait expressed on finding Hiei. What the kitsune had said to him made her wonder why he had said that. Their leader would never harm Hiei, right? That just seemed so out of place for the raven-haired male to do. He was known to protect people that he cared about.

"Don't worry, Yukina. Hiei can take care of himself." Genkai spoke up from the silence of the room, making her jump and turn her gaze over to the short pink-haired woman. "I just hope that either Kurama or Kuwabara gets to him first. Yusuke would probably lose complete control if he finds him."

"Oh, Master Genkai! You startled me…" The ice-maiden said with a jolt. She watched as the elder walked over to her and sat down. "Um… Genkai-sama, are you sure that Hiei will be alright? Yusuke… He had a dangerous look in his eyes… You don't think that he would hurt Hiei, do you?"

The elder sensei gave a light laugh at the koorime's innocence. "Yukina, honey, your definition of 'hurt' and mine are completely different. If dimwit manages to find Hiei first, there is no doubt that he will 'hurt' him, but not in a way that you think." She said as she folded her arms with a grin looking out towards the still opened door where the four fools left.

Yukina blinked in confusion, looking at her caretaker. However, she would never question Genkai's words; she was wise and obviously knew something that she didn't. If there was any true danger towards Hiei, she would have done something about it. "Yes, Master Genkai… Oh, you would have never guessed, but he was so cute today. Cuddling up next to Kazuma, it looked so unreal~. It was almost comical." She joked, glad that her suspicions were eased slightly.

Smiling slightly, the pink-haired elder gave out a raspy chuckle in agreement. Of course she knew that Hiei was only acting as such because of his 'problem,' but it was still funny to hear about the hardheaded demon acting as such. "Is that so?" She spoke out with a laugh. "It seems that the little Fire-brat is going a bit soft, huh?"

"Maybe. But I like him like that. I feel closer to him than before…" She said with a small smile that graced her lips as she looked out the same door that the team left out of. She only hoped that they all made it back safely. Kurama and Yusuke could easily fend for themselves, but Hiei was injured and possibly not feeling well to start. Not to mention, Kuwabara was a human. Could he even survive an entire night out in those demon-filled woods?

"They all may be morons…" She started with a sigh, looking down and shaking her head. "But they are my morons. If they don't come back by morning, I will look for them myself."


*1 – In the anime, Hiei was only injured severely at the waist, while in the manga he was actually sliced in half.

Chapter 3: Sensations


The sound of birds chirping and the greeting of the rising sun awoke the Fox from his slumber. Reaching a hand up to rub over a tired eye, Kurama sat up a bit confused at his current location. He wasn't in his usual room, but the scent was still familiar, but slightly off. He was in Genkai's temple, he knew that for sure. Blinking a bit to regain his senses, he took another glance around the room, until his gaze landed on a tuff of black-spiked hair with an outline of dark blue, shimmering with a  star-burst white in the middle of the design.

A scent reacted faster than his vision could, and he immediately knew that it belonged to his tiny friend, Hiei. Kurama dropped his guard, relaxing now that he knew the scent wasn't a threat. Rubbing at his eyes again, he leaned down to look closer into those closed lids. His soft breathing passed through slightly parted lips; Hiei looked much better than the day before. Although, a thick feeling still hung in the air; a feeling that he couldn't pin out.

The Fox got himself out of the shared bed, quietly, and pulled the sheets back over the sleepy demon. A movement made Kurama hold his breath and still, as he tried not to make a sound. A bandaged hand reached up to grip at the pillow that his head rested on, and snuggled himself into it, giving out a sigh of comfort. With relief that he didn't wake his resting friend, the Fox made his way out of the room as quietly as he could to inform his other comrades about the condition of their smallest teammate.

The redhead smiled at the thought of Hiei's returning health, he was healing quickly mostly thanks to Master Genkai. Rough on the outside, but deep down she does care, even if it is just a little bit.

Making his way to the living room, Kurama slid a door open to find the rest of his team, Yusuke and Kuwabara sitting on the couch and watching television. “Hey, Kurama, how's Hiei doing?” The raven-haired leader asked as he turned his full attention to the approaching redhead.

“He is resting at the moment. His condition has improved since yesterday, thanks to the medicine that Genkai gave us, no doubt.” A smooth as silk voice erupted into the quite room, catching the taller redhead's attention.

Kuwabara's gaze narrowed at the sight of his other redhead companion. There was a mix sensation of energy that his sixth sense spiked. What could have happened to Kurama when he was with the fire-demon? “Hey, Kurama, what happened? Your energy feels kinda funny. Did the squirt do anything to ya?” He was concerned, perhaps the evil little three-eyed twerp put a strange spell on the poor half-human. Once his friend fully recuperates, then he would have to teach that small-fry a lesson.

Kurama's eyebrows furrowed, “Of course not, Kuwabara. Hiei was in no condition to harm me in any way.” This was strange. If Kazuma felt a strange mix of ki from him, there must have been something wrong without him noticing. Whenever the orange-haired male sense something was off, it usually was correct. His sixth sense was stronger than any of the teams, and has gotten them out of tricky situations before.

“Hey, man, what's wrong with you, huh? Accusing Kurama of being cursed or somethin'? Sorry about that Kurama. Hey, do you think it is alright if I check up on him real quick? Not that I don't trust your opinion, I just wanted to see it for myself.” Yusuke blabbered on, lightly punching his friend in the arm, and getting up from the couch over to the standing long-haired male.

Kuwabara growled out, and huffed, folding his arms. It wasn't his fault that he could sense something was up with the Fox demon. Kurama shook his head, “be my guest. Just be cautious not to wake him. He tends to be very agitated whenever he is forcefully woken from his sleep.” He warned, stepping aside to allow the leader of the team to step by.

Yusuke laughed, waving a hand nonchalant, “Ha! I'd think I like to see that for myself!” He joked, but then grew serious quickly. “But I will try not to. I just want to check up on him really quickly. He was in pretty bad shape, and as you know he tends to try and hide his pain.” It was the truth, and the green eyes sparkled with agreement. How could they forget the Dark Tournament when Hiei first used the dragon?

The strange feeling wouldn't leave the curious carrot-topped male, as he stood up and followed the leader. “I'm coming too. Gotta protect Urameshi if hamster-legs wakes up and goes on a rampage, eh?” He solemnly joked, as he walked past the green suited man. As much as he despised the miniature fire-demon, Kuwabara hated the fact that he was injured even more. Truthfully, he just wanted to see if the little firecracker was alright.

A ruffle of red hair twirled gently, as Kurama shook his head. Those boys will never change it seems, and it put a smile on his face to see that there were people who cared about the mysterious fire youkai. He heard a commotion of the two verbally fighting as they made their way to the demons room, softly fading into nothing but the sounds of nature. He sighed, a smile still lighting his face, as he made his way to the kitchen to fix something to eat for him and his little friend when he wakes.

~ O ~

As quietly as the two boys could be, they sneaked their way into Hiei's room. The detective and the carrot-haired male both knelt down to the small mattress on the floor near the sleeping demon. Yusuke couldn't help but to mentally awe at the face that was spread across the small and usually stoic demon. He looked so young, so innocent. Unlike the usual rude and threatening glare that usually met his gaze.

Kuwabara's eyes widened at the new side of the little Shrimp. He had never seen him so vulnerable in his entire life, he even appeared to look normal. Was this really the same three-eyed half-pint that he once knew? Who would have known that he looked like this while sleeping. “Wow, Urameshi... I'd never knew that Hiei would look so... small...”

Hearing his conscious friend speak the demons name fully, he knew that he was serious and speaking the truth. “Yeah... He looks almost fragile...” Yusuke could see how Kuwabara thought that. He was the tallest in the group, and with Hiei's naturally short-stature, he looked even smaller when he was curled in a thick blanket. Reaching out, he gently brushed a few fingers across a heated cheek. “Like, if you were too rough... You could break him...”

Their voices were quite, speaking among themselves, trying not to wake the slumbering small man. Kuwabara's gaze narrowed once again as he felt that same feeling like before. This time, it was coming from Hiei. This was strange, however, he promptly ignored it. “C-Careful, Urameshi. You don't want to wake him...” He whispered quietly, keeping an eye on his friends hand as it moved to his unclothed forehead.

“He feels really warm, Kuwabara... You don't think he's sick, do you?” He asked, voice full of concern and hush. He didn't even need to place a hand on the little youkai to feel the heat coming off of him. Curious to know if it was merely the fact that he is a fire demon and his temperature is naturally high, or if he really is ill.

A sudden shift of the blankets, made Yusuke jerk his hand back, afraid that he had accidentally awoken the smaller demon, as they both stilled at the sight. Hiei merely moved his legs a bit higher, curling himself further into the warmth of the blanket, and snuggling his head letting out a small mumble.

The Spirit Detective sighed in relief, and scooted closer to him. Kuwabara wanted to giggle at the soft sound that came from the usually angry youkai. It seemed so unnatural that the softest of voices came from Hiei of all creatures. He reminded him of an innocent child, cuddling closer to the blankets that surrounded his small frame.

“You know, I'd never thought I would say this, but... Hiei looks kinda cute when he's asleep.” Kuwabara whispered with a small smile on his face. He noticed his awake friend nod in agreement, as they both scooted closer. He could easily feel the heat that came off of him, almost like a little oven. Was that safe? Or was there really something wrong with him? Usually when they stood next to each other, he never felt these waves of heat rolling off of him before.

“Hey...” Urameshi said a bit worriedly, leaning over the heated male. Hiei's entire body was shaking uncontrollably, and a thin sheet of sweat was forming over his visible frame. Those softly closed eyes were now clutched shut, as a grimace took over his facial feature, like he was in pain. Small hands gripped tightly onto the fabric of the pillow that he lay on, as a muffled groan left his throat. “Kuwabara, get Kurama!”

Gray eyes darted over from the small and shaking frame of Hiei, to worried dark brown. “Right!
He said before darting to his feet and running off to get the famous Fox demon. His feet pounded against the wooden floors, as he ran as fast as he could. He knew that something was wrong from the start, but now it flew back into his mind at full speed. “Kurama!”

~ O ~

Yusuke leaned forward to gently touch the trembling demon, managing a gentle hand on his cheek. A hiss left his lips when he felt how boiling hot he felt against his palm, however, he kept firm. He could feel the skin on his hand starting to redden with a burn, but he knew that his friend needed him.“Hiei?” He asked gently, tempted to wake the smaller male just to attempt to get him out of his strange nightmare.

Suddenly, ruby eyes snapped open in a stray of panic, eyes dilated thickly. Before Yusuke could ask, the quick half-koorime leaped at him. Urameshi wasn't one to dodge or attack back one of his teammates. Especially to an injured and possibly ill one, so he leaned back with a gasp, as he barely had time to realize what happened.

A rush of footsteps came louder, until a door slid open with a loud shhh sound, as both of the redheads rushed in, but stopped at the doorway in shock. Green and gray eyes widened at the display in front of them, possibly one that they won't soon forget.

Yusuke held a shaking and heated little Hiei in his arms. Those little hands clutched tightly into the school uniform shirt that he had on. A head of thick and spiky black hair was pressed against the leaders chest, blocking half of his face from view, his eyes tightly clenched shut. Although, what made the scene more frightening, other than the fact that Hiei was practically sitting in Urameshi's lap, was the sound of light tapping that hit the floor and the mattress.

Even from the distance, Kurama could easily see the small little black pearls that littered the floor around the two embraced males. Following the trail, he noticed that Hiei was crying. Going up further, a worried expression shaped over the detectives face, along with confusion and a smidgen of pain. Even from this far away, he could feel the heat rolling off of the unstable fire-demon. Holding him was possibly like trying to hold fire.

Chocolate eyes moved up to look at the two with a confused and saddened look, gripping the smaller male closer, ignoring his skin boiling under the demons touch. “Yusuke! What happened?” Kurama asked, his soft voice taking on a more ridged edge, as he glanced down at the clearly distraught demon. He moved closer with caution, trying not to frighten Hiei, and braving the waves of heat energy that hit him, as he and Kuwabara moved.

“I-I have no idea! He was f-fine a minute ago. And then, all of a sudden he was shaking, woke up and then jumped me!” Yusuke spoke loudly, trying to hide the pain that riddled throughout his body wherever the demon touched. He had no idea what had happened to make their littlest team member act like this.

Kurama wouldn't dare touch the unstable fire-demon in this condition, something was definitely wrong, and he had to act fast. “Yusuke, we have to throw him in some ice water. He can't stay at this temperature for an extended period.” He said swiftly, as he stood, coaxing the leader to standing with him.

Yusuke hissed as he stood, which startled the smaller youkai making him boil hotter in his grasp. Lifting Hiei up with an arm under him and another wrapped around his body, the raven-haired leader grit his teeth. “N-No Shit! Me neither!” He said, half joking and half serious. There was no way he was going to let him go now, it was clear that there was something wrong with their smallest member. He was clinging to him so tightly to his shirt, almost like a lifeline.

Kuwabara looked down for a second and picked up one of the little black pearls that littered the floor near the two. Rolling it in his fingers, it looked like a marble, but within he could see a small red flame inside of the little crystal ball. They very much reminded him of the hiruseki stones that Yukina would shed. This was very suspicious.

“Kuwabara!” The said male jumped, dropping the stone, and standing up to attention to the other redhead in the room. “We have to get some ice, quickly!” Kurama said as he jogged past him. Without a word, Kazuma immediately fallowed his teammate to help him fetch the bags of ice that they requested.

Then an idea popped into the carrot-haired man's mind. “Hey, Kurama, why don't we find Yukina! She could easily cool Hiei off!” He thought it was a great idea, instead of working around it and going against the redheads intelligent plans.

As they both ran into the kitchen, Kurama shook his head at the thought of Yukina seeing Hiei in such a condition. Not only that but he was crying, which would risk the chance of her finding out that he is her brother, and he couldn't risk it. Hiei was his best friend, and he was sure that the little youkai would never forgive him if he allowed Yukina to find that out, let alone see him in such a poor and weak state. “No, Kuwabara, it is just safer to do it this way. Please trust me on this.”

~ O ~

Yusuke growled as he tried to bite back the yelp of pain from the burning demon in his arms. “Your going to be alright, Hiei.” He said softly, as he ran to the bathroom. The door was kicked open, to the small and ordinary bathroom, as he made his way to the tub. Lifting an arm away and strengthening the other to hold Hiei straight, Urameshi plugged the tub up and turned the water on the coldest setting possible.

Next was trying to pry the little pipsqueak off of his body so that he could get into the tub. Making sure to be gentle, even though he was basically burning alive, Yusuke tried to pull Hiei off of him to no avail. He only seemed to grip tighter onto his clothes, and boil even more under his touch. The leader couldn't contain the yelp in pain, as he nearly jerked his hands away, but managing to keep them steady on the demon. It would be really bad if he dropped him, he was already injured, and dropping him wouldn't help him any.

“Damn it!” He yelled, more at himself than at Hiei. It wasn't his fault. Yusuke would blame himself for not figuring out what was wrong with the little fire-demon in the first place. He just wished that he didn't have to be boiled alive in the process. He could only imagine how the poor demon in his arms is feeling at the moment. He knew that Hiei wouldn't be doing this if he had control of himself.

The small youkai was shaking even more ferociously in his arms, and  if he listened closely, it wasn't hard to hear him whimpering against his chest. Poor Hiei, he must be suffering. Could this really be a fever for him? Or was it a form of a panic attack? Who would know, perhaps Hiei was just angry and did this for kicks. Yusuke smirked, of course the latter wasn't the problem, he would never subject himself to this, Hiei would rather fall on his own sword than to purposely do something like this.

Snapping him from his thoughts, Kurama and Kuwabara rushed in with buckets of ice in their arms. “Urameshi, what are you doing? Put Hiei in the water!” Kazuma practically yelled, looking down at the little demon in his arms, he was looking worse as the seconds ticked by. His body was turning a sick pale color, but his cheeks remained a soft blush. Not to mention, he was still sweating, he looked very uncomfortable.

“You think I tried that already? He won't let me go! He just gets hotter and it burns like hell!” Yusuke yelped in defense. He didn't want to force Hiei off of him, it might do him more harm than good. Talking to him did little, if anything at all, Hiei seemed oblivious to the world around him; stuck in his own world.

Kurama placed the buckets he had, down near the tub, and pushed the couple towards the water, shutting it off since it was getting full. “Enough bickering, please. Yusuke, you just have to get in the water with him.” There was no time for delay, Hiei needed to be cooled down before he would cause permanent damage to himself. It wasn't healthy to have his body at such a high temperature for so long, even if he is a fire demon.

The raven-haired leader nearly pouted, knowing that he would have to bathe with the known hot-headed half-koorime. Hiei would probably kill him if he knew what he was going to do, but it was for his own health. With a sigh and a small grumble, Yusuke braved the already cold water and laid down, pulling the youkai onto his chest.

With both of them in the water, it rose around Yusuke, as he lay on his back, and covered the youkai up to the middle of his back, as he rested on his chest. Even though Hiei needed the contact to the water most, Yusuke wouldn't switch positions, only because he was scared to crush the little guy with his own weight. Hiei was a lightweight after all.

The burns on Urameshi's skin were nicely numbed by the cold water, but it wasn't long before the water started to heat up from the demons body. Kurama poured one bucket of ice into the tub, between both Hiei's and Yusuke's legs. The fire-demon didn't move at the feeling of the ice between his legs, but the leader gripped harder onto the little demons back as he shivered and his eyes bulged. “D-D-Damn K-Kurama! T-Tryin' t-t-t-to fr-freeze my b-balls off?” Because of the height difference, Hiei's hips were pressed against the half-breed's stomach, while Yusuke took most of the ice attack.

With a swift apology, Kurama took a cup and scooped up some of the ice, and poured it onto the top of Hiei's back, watching it immediately melt on contact, the water rolling off in different directions into the mass that he laid in. “This won't work... Kuwabara, pour half of a bucket onto Hiei's back, but be careful, you don't want to put him into shock.”

The tallest male did as he was told, and picked up a second bucket that they brought, positioning it carefully over the tub, before tilting it, gently, over the smallest team members back. Hiei yelped at the immediate contact that his scorching skin had with the freezing ice. He clenched harder at the leaders shirt desperately trying to find anything to grab, as his body started to tremble again.

Most of the ice rolled down to his lower back, as Hiei arched from the freezing touch. Yusuke started to shiver now as he was starting to feel the effects of the cold water. This was for Hiei, so he made sure to hold tightly onto the shaky demon. He didn't feel as hot as before, as the ice water was doing its job, now he looked to be shaking from the cold. He felt awful as the whimpering only grew into silent sobbing, as he could hear the light plopping of the tear-stones hit the water around them.

Pouring half of the bucket like the redhead asked, Kazuma pulled back immediately to allow Kurama to spread the piled ice onto the rest of his back. Under the heat of Hiei and Kurama's hand, the ice started to melt, but not as badly as when he first placed the ice onto his skin. This was a good sign, showing that Hiei was cooling down. “Sh-Sh-Shit...!” Yusuke stuttered out, his lips starting to turn a blueish tint. He was freezing, although, Hiei still felt warm, but not as hot as before.

The Fox demon's brows furrowed, “Yusuke, I'd suggest that you get out before you end up with hypothermia.” He said softly, reaching out to feel the back of Hiei's neck for his temperature. He still felt warm, but was much better than he was before. The fire-demon could handle the freezing water, but the Mozaku demon can't, and Kurama knows it. He may seem tough, but it was clear to see that the cold was affecting him.

“N-No w-way.” Yusuke boldly said, as he held tighter onto the cooling demon laying on him. “H-Hiei needs th-this. If-If he w-w-wants me t-to stay, the-then I will.” His cocky attitude would probably be the death of him, but at least he would die with the knowledge of protecting his friend. It was in his nature to protect, and Hiei was no different.

Sighing in defeat, Kurama turned to Kuwabara to inform him to put the rest of the ice from the bucket onto Hiei. With a nod, he did just that and poured the rest of the ice onto the top of Hiei's back. Some of it was already melted into water, as it rolled down the whimpering demons back and into the frigid waters around them. Now, thanks to the volume of the bodies and ice in the tub, the water was high enough to nearly engulf the two up to their necks.

Yusuke couldn't feel his arms, but he still managed to rub the shaky youkai's bare back to try and comfort Hiei. He was still shaking, and from what he felt through his chest, he was getting cooler as the ice piled onto him and the waters. The youkai was breathing in shaky and uneven breaths, his fingers flexing in his, already wrinkled, green shirt.

Then suddenly, Hiei fell limp into his arms, with a deep sigh. Yusuke immediately took notice of his friend becoming non-responsive. “K-Kurama...! H-H-Hiei's not-not moving...!” His chocolate eyes widened, as he looked down at the tuff of hair that blocked his vision from the demons face. Of course he felt no heartbeat, he was a demon after all, Yusuke's heart still doesn't beat to this day. However, it greatly didn't help that Hiei's ki dramatically dropped when he fell limp in his arms. He knew that both of his teammates felt it too.

“Hiei!” Kuwabara yelped, as he leaned over the tub to look at the out-cold demon. He was so tempted to reach in and grab the little guy from his friend, but had to think logically and follow Kurama's orders. He was the intelligent one when it came to this.

Green eyes widened, as he rushed to place a hand on the middle of the youkai's back. His ki was draining quickly, possibly due to shock of the freezing waters. “Kuwabara, take Hiei and dry him off. Wrap him in a thin blanket, so that he can warm up slowly. I will tend to Yusuke.” He said as calmly as he could, pulling the plug to let the water drain.

Kazuma didn't need to be told twice, as he gently grabbed the little fireball, and held him against his chest like Urameshi did, with an arm wrapped underneath him. Grabbing a towel with his other arm, he flung it around the smaller man's shoulders and jogged into Hiei's room. Leaving his two teammates in the bathroom.

Without watching where he was going, and thanks to his own clumsiness, he forgot about the hiruseki stones that Hiei had cried while he was being held by Urameshi. Stepping on the little crystals, he nearly flung Hiei over his head, but managed to hold him steady on his chest, as he squealed out a yell, falling onto his back. “Ow...” he softly said. With his own weight, not the mention Hiei's, it just added more pressure to his fall. Not that it mattered, the little guy barely weighed anything.

Blinking his eyes open, he jerked up and checked on his little friend. Hiei looked unharmed, but was still knocked out. Pulling himself to his knees, he shimmied his way over to the mattress, this time making sure to miss the evil stones that threatened to trip him once again. Sitting in the bed, Kuwabara wrapped Hiei in the bright red towel that he grabbed, and rubbed it over his body to dry him off. He wasn't burning off those waves of heat anymore, and his temperature felt closer to normal, but he was still cold to the touch.

Pulling the little fire-demon into his own chest, he did his best to try and warm him up as naturally as he could. While he held Hiei with one arm, rubbing his side to cause friction, he used his other to pick up the hiruseki stones around them, placing them in his jacket pocket. He wouldn't keep them, he just wanted to get them out of the way in case someone else trips on them.

As he picked the last stone up and put it away, Yukina walked in. “Kazuma, I was wondering where you were. Is Hiei ok?” She asked with her naturally soft and gentle voice, walking up to the two. Kneeling down, she looked at the pale figure in the taller males grasp wrapped in a towel. “He doesn't look too good. Where is Kurama and Yusuke?”

Kuwabara's heart leaped to his throat when he heard the lovely voice of his darling Yukina. He had a deep suspicion about the tear-stones, and wanted to ask Yukina about them. Perhaps she knew something that he didn't. Although, a strange feeling enveloped his mind that told him to not expose the stones to the ice maiden, and he promptly listened to them. He knew that Yukina has been searching for her long lost brother for all these years.

It took an entire heartbeat, possibly two, and the puzzle melded itself together. It clicked, Hiei was Yukina's brother! He couldn't pin it to any other solution. He knew that ice maidens had the ability to cry precious tear gems and knew of no other demon species that did the same. There could be no other possibility, Hiei was Yukina's lost twin brother.

He had heard of the story that she told, where he was born a fire-demon, and was chucked off the cliffs of their home to die. She had the suspicion that he survived, and went looking for him. Did Hiei even know? Probably, which is why he never revealed it to her to begin with, but why? He wouldn't want to anger the said demon, so he decided to keep his mouth shut about it. “Yukina! Yeah, Hiei isn't doing too good. Urameshi and Kurama...”

“Right here! Don't worry we were just cleaning the bathroom, Hiei had to take a quick bath. No big deal.” The slick-backed leader said as he and Kurama walked into the room. Yusuke had a thick blanket wrapped around himself, as he walked over to Kazuma and the secret twins. Once he was out of the frigid water, and into a nice blanket, he felt much better.

The redhead smiled warmly at the sight of Yukina pulling back Hiei's bangs that fell into his face. If only she knew. Walking up to them, he sat down next to the group eyeing the half-koorime, taking note of his condition. His scent alone was strange, as Kurama silently sniffed the air to get a better reading. He smelt a mix of pain and anticipation in the air around him. How odd.

“Hiei will be fine, Yukina, don't worry. He's a tough little one, although we can't seem to guess what is wrong with him.” Yusuke said with a shrug, wrapping the blanket tighter around himself. He was so glad that Kurama went to retrieve an extra set of clothes for him to wear. He had checked his injuries from the little half-koorime only to confirm that he had left multiple blistering burn marks over his chest. The cold water helped tremendously, and the Fox demon also helped apply a bit of aloe to numb it further.

Kazuma gently lifted the unconscious demon in one arm and grabbed the blanket on the bed to wrap him in. Once more, Kuwabara fathomed at the view of the tiny creature inside of the cocoon blanket. Hiei, as fierce of an opponent he was, it really caught him off guard that he could deem himself to look, dare he say it, adorable.

Even while unconscious, Hiei managed to defeat the odds of possible cuteness by cuddling further into the warmth of the blanket surrounding him, and then to the heat source that held him known as Kuwabara. “Aww, Kazuma, how sweet~. How about I get all of you some warm tea?” Yukina cooed out, her eyes never leaving the rare sight of the fire-youkai being affectionate for once, even if it is unintentional.

With a wide grin, Yusuke turned to the blue-haired ice maiden “That would be great, Yukina. Thanks.” Just thinking about drinking a warm beverage had his whole body merely shaking with the familiar sense of warmth once again. It was strange to be boiling hot one second, and then freezing cold in the next.

Yukina smiled softly, and stood moving closer to the spiky-haired demon and redhead human. Leaning down, she gently moved a hand over the exposed cheek of the cuddling apparition. “I knew that he liked you all along, Kazuma. Thank you for being so kind to him.” She spoke softly, placing a chaste kiss on the taller redheads cheek before walking away to fetch the warm beverages.

Kuwabara blushed madly, a massive smile clouded his face at the affectionate move. He giggled, feeling a rush of blood to face, trying to take in his manly pride. Taking the compliment in stride, he straightened himself out, and held Hiei tighter in his grasp, anything to make his Yukina happy. With extra effort, he made sure that the demon in his arms was comfortable, even allowing him to grip onto his shirt without worry.

“Damn, Kuwabara, don't fall in love with him, now.” The Toushin said with a very small hint of sarcasm in his voice, making the other sputter, and nearly lose his grip. This was always worth it when it came to the little fire-demon. He knew that Hiei would never allowed the human to touch him like that and get away with it, alive that is. Perhaps there was really something wrong with him, it didn't seem natural at all. Maybe Genkai could shed some light on the situation.

“URAMESHI!” He would always tease him like this. It seemed more of a brotherly thing now. Even if Yusuke was a demon, he would always be his friend, no matter what. With an angry scowl, he made sure to not get over heated from the insult to his pride, he had to keep composure to make Yukina happy. If holding the little fireball in his arms would do it, then he would gladly comply.

Kurama couldn't pinpoint that scent that came from the demon. It was strange. His body was overwhelmingly hot. Boiling enough to burn Yusuke just from the contact. The only way to disperse the hot-headed demon was to literally dump him into ice water, but the scent still remained even though his temperature was heading back to normal.

He didn't look completely disheveled like before, now he looked more calm, although his body seemed to be searching for the warmth of another. Even when he was pouring waves of energy in the form of heat, he wouldn't release Yusuke at all, almost clinging to him for a sense of comfort. The great Shuichi didn't even have an answer to this; he was stumped.

With a sigh, green eyes drifted over Kuwabara as he clung tighter onto the unconscious youkai. He would have to talk to Genkai about his condition, knowing that only he could smell out this unique scent that came off of him. “Yusuke, being part demon... Do you smell anything different about Hiei at the moment?” It was an odd question in the spur of the moment, but he had to know if it was just him. Even Kuwabara mentioned something about Hiei's energy acting strange.

Moving away from teasing the poor redhead any further, he turned his full attention to the Fox demon beside him. “Huh, what, do you smell something wrong with him, Kurama?” There was no way that the kyuubi would lie about something like this. Even though he had a much more sensitive nose than most humans because of his change, he couldn't compare to the demon beside him.

With a nod, Kurama confirmed Yusuke's question. “It isn't his usual scent. I smelt a mixture of pain, anxiousness and something else that I can't really explain. Perhaps something close to desire? Although, I am uncertain. Even now, the scent still lingers but it isn't as strong as before when his temperature was spiking.” The explanation was long, but he needed to give him a bases of what he was smelling so Yusuke could determine it for himself.

“Really?” The half-breed said as he pulled his upper-body from the protection of the covers closer to the cuddling demon in his friends lap. Closing his eyes, he concentrated his senses to smell, as he breathed in the scent of the fire apparition. The first thing that came to his mind was the scent of smoke and pine that defined the demon in general. If only he could get a better reading, it was hard with his undeveloped nose to smell what Kurama was getting at. “I don't smell much other than his usual scent. Kuwabara, let me hold him for a minute.”

A tinge of anger flashed across his gray gaze, at losing his chick magnet, but he willingly lifted the fragile body into Yusuke's open arms and into his lap. The leader of the group re-situated Hiei so that his body was seated sideways in his arms, his little legs bent at the knee, over his right thigh, while his upper body was propped up by his left arm.

Pulling the blanket down, the Toushin knew that this would look strange to the human redhead, but he had to get a sniff for himself, maybe he could talk with Kurama about it to determine what was wrong with Hiei. The fire-demon's head leaned against his chest, a sea of spiky black hair with blue highlights and a white star-burst. This was the first area that held a more concentrated smell, and Yusuke pressed his face into the soft locks and breathed deeply.

Kurama didn't falter at the view, knowing that it was the best way for him to learn how to use his enhanced sense of smell. He didn't need to get as close, but when he was younger he had to do the same thing that Yusuke did as a kit in order to get the ability that he has today. The other redhead, however, watched the scene like they were a couple of aliens.

With the moving locks of hair, Yusuke easily could pick up on a different scent that invaded his senses, although it was difficult to pin into words. “I do smell something, now. I feel kind of... weird.” It was hard to put into words in what he was smelling. The emotions that the little demon felt seemed to be molded to his scent, and now he could practically feel it when he put concentration into it.

His demon self was clawing at his consciousness, desperately trying to make its way to the surface. He held it back, but the feeling of his Toushin blood rushing through his veins clouded his movements, as he ventured further. A deep rumble came out of nowhere, as he moved away from the mass of hair, and lower to a pale throat. It took Yusuke a moment to realize that the sound came from him, as he nuzzled the soft neck to brush up more of the scent and make it airborne for him to breathe in.

The Youko within Kurama nearly made him growl out in warning at the other demons sound. That was a sound of dominance if the Fox has ever heard it before, Yusuke's demon self was making their leader unconsciously tell others around him that the smell that was being presented to him was his for the taking; and the redhead had an obligation to protect Hiei from anyone who would dare take advantage of him in his current state.

“I smell his pain.” Urameshi said softly, nuzzling into the demons neck further to rustle up more of the intense area of concentrated smell. He felt Hiei turn his head away from the half-breed with a groan, ultimately giving him more room to maneuver. Yusuke's fangs pinched at his teeth to grow out from their human constraint to bite the flesh underneath, but he held them back with a strong sense of effort.

How he couldn't sense this before was beyond him, maybe it was because he was in pain from the youkai's burning body that he didn't smell it before, but now he could see where Kurama was coming from. “You're right. It has got to be desire along with anxiety. There's no doubt about that.”

Before he would do anything he would regret, Yusuke re-wrapped the fire demon and handed him back to Kuwabara, covering himself into his own blanket. Kurama calmed himself to lash out at his friend the minute that his body was moved to the other redhead. If he were to give a response to that growl, not only would he be turning against their leader, but he would also be challenging Yusuke for Hiei. That was something that he didn't want to do, not that he couldn't try, but he didn't want to have to fight the strong Toushin. Yusuke wouldn't notice it consciously, but his demon self could easily slip through and fight for him, just like with Sensui.

“Man, that was kinda weird. I don't smell anything at all.” Kazuma said mostly to himself, as he situated the little demon in his arms, making sure that he was comfortable like before. He has to look good for Yukina, and maybe he would receive another kiss for treating the little Squirt with care.

“Indeed, I knew that I sensed something like that. We will have to ask Genkai on her opinion now that we both have proof of his condition,” Kurama said softly, turning his gaze over to the doorway to greet the ice-maiden with a small smile, as she walked in. They would discuss it later, but now Kurama had to keep in mind that Yusuke's demon side seem to be taking a liking to Hiei's scent. He had to protect him if he manages to lose control.

“Sorry it took so long, I decided to make some sandwiches. Is anyone hungry?” She said with a bright smile on her face, placing the tray in the middle of them on the bed. Turning to Kuwabara she tilted her head at the cute little demon in his grasp. Who would have guessed that Hiei would look so cute?

The minute she spoke, Kazuma perked right up making sure to hold Hiei close to put on a display of his tenderness like before. “Yukina! Wow, thank you, they look delicious!” He spoke tenderly, as he grabbed a cup and a sandwich for himself. “I will give Hiei half of my sandwich whenever he wakes up. I bet he will be starving!” The redhead said with a glint of pride, hoping to use this act of generosity to attract his lovely Yukina once more.

Yusuke couldn't help but to roll his eyes at the mindless redhead trying to grab the attention of the woman next to him. Trying to be bold and brave by sacrificing part of his meal for Hiei, typical. Although, he wouldn't doubt that if they were doing a mission and the food was scarce that Kuwabara wouldn't think twice than to share with the angry little youkai. Even if Hiei wouldn't dare do the same in return. He was raised off of pure instincts, and sharing doesn't exist in his world.

Kurama smirked at Yukina as she cooed and kissed Kuwabara on the cheek once again, making him blush and cradle Hiei more. He reached for a sandwich to snack on, when another hand met his, along with a low growl. Green eyes melded into gold for a brief moment, as he darted his gaze to look up at Yusuke's that had turned a deep copper color, the same as his demon form. In response, Kurama growled back, but they both didn't move their hand, nor take their eyes off each other for a solid heartbeat.

As if snapping out of it, Yusuke shook his head and widened his eyes, now back to their usual chocolate color. “Whoa, my bad, Kurama. Sorry about that.” He didn't even know what happened in that brief moment, his mind went blank and when he regained himself, he noticed that they were both going for the same piece of food. Moving his hand over, he grabbed another sandwich and went back to watching over Hiei, trying not to entice the redhead further by looking at him. His instincts told him not to look into his eyes right now.

As quickly as Yusuke regained his consciousness, his eyes shifted back to their usual green. It seems that his demon side was enticed by Hiei's scent, which showed a bit of loss in his usual control. “No need to apologize. I am sorry as well.” He tried to act normal, around the awkwardness that filled the room. He noticed that Yukina and Kuwabara were startled a bit, and staring.

Looking over at Yukina, and then back at the two as they both had their gazes locked on the Shrimp in his arms, he said out-loud softly “Well that was weird.” mostly to his precious Yukina than anyone else, as he continued to eat half of his sandwich.
.:The Fox and the Dragon:. Chapter 3

Looks like we have a bit of rivalry. I wonder what could possibly happen next?
A real question would be, what is wrong with Hiei?
Does anyone have an idea?

Please leave a nice comment if you liked it. I would like to hear what you liked about it.

Please no flame or spam, unless it is a correction of sorts. I am very new to this couple and if I had pronounced anything incorrectly, I wish to be told.

The Picture was photoshopped by me, and the images used were all made by the creator of the series of Yu Yu Hakusho.

***If anyone understands where I got the title from, you all deserve an amazing cookie.***

If you can't read the fanfiction for any reason, here is a link to where it is available for all ages!

Yu Yu Hakusho Relationship Overview of Hiei by XxGaaraloverxX
Yu Yu Hakusho Relationship Overview of Hiei
Not that many people that Hiei associated with during the series if you actually sit down and think about it. I actually had to forcefully include Shigure in there just to fill up 12 even spots.

Now, I bet your wondering who is on who?
Is this the relationship that Hiei believes he has with these characters?
Or is it the other way around, on how the characters view their relationship with Hiei?
That is for you to find out, and also with the morphing of my fanfictions, it will help determine what Hiei believes himself.
This is sort of a little teaser on how I view Hiei, since he will be the main character in all of the Yu Yu Hakusho fics I will make, just like Gaara.
It will also help with identifying how I will use the characters from this to map out how their actual relationship will be in the fic.

I tried to use pictures that was created from the actual anime itself, or from the original owner, if I have made a mistake, please let me know so that I can give credit where it is due.
All was photoshopped by me.

Journal History

  • Mood: Adoration
  • Listening to: "Now That's What I Call Music" CD's
  • Reading: KuramaXHiei Manga
  • Playing: Pikmin 1 (Gamecube)
I am really excited to tell you all about my newest story of my two familiar, but new, favorite boys.

The story is going very well, I am a bit rusty from not writing anything in over half-a-year, but I will try my best to keep the typos to a minimum. This is probably not going to be my best only because I have never written a story about these two before.

I have done a lot of studying of this pairing, reading other peoples fanfictions and vamping up my knowledge on these two on a deeper level like I am with Rock Lee and Gaara-kun. It is interesting, but they are not as detailed characters as I thought. They don't even have actual stated Birthdays like our Lee and Gaara-kun does. I hate to go off of guesses since I like to stick to what the character is firmly stated by the actual creator than to make things up about them.
(It is a copyright thing, I am using them to write about. I think making things up about them is going a bit too far.)

Now, back to the actual fanfiction in progress, shall we?
It feels short for me, as being a one-shot (Which is my specialty), but I will try to extend it to past 10,000 words. With it's current progression, I think that it will easily pass that.

And to get to the real reason why I am writing this journal, I have a few opinions on what the actual "sex" scene should look like.
I have also been viewing a lot of readily available Doujinshi of these two, (Which there is a LOT of, let me tell you) and I have read both the soft and hard Yaoi of it.

It has aspired me to create some different scenes of what this fanfiction would spawn, when it comes to these two getting down and dirty. (Now, this won't be any spoilers, since I will not announce which I will use)

Please pick one of the five below that you would most like to see from the couple of Kurama and Hiei.

1. Soft-core Yaoi. Gentle, kisses and caresses.

2. Slight Rough-core Yaoi. Light blood-play, bites and scratches.

3. Threesome? If so then who would be the third person?

4. Bondage/BDSM. (Do I need to explain?)

5. Drunk/Drugged Sex?

(I already have an idea of what I will involve, but I am just very curious to see what my fans would like to read)
