Yasuo appears to Anna and Tsuzuki and purposes a question and answer game before he attacks them. Not my best, but it helps to kill a chapter before the end.
Chapter Twenty-Nine: Q&A:
Yasuo smirked at them with his kitsune, Aki, sitting beside him.
“Well, well. You’re both here. Good for me.” Tsuzuki prepared to attack. Anna felt her wrists burning with the cold again. This time, she tried not to show her pain. Her eyes were filled with hate for her uncle. Yasuo snickered to himself as he took in the scene.
“I love how you’re both wanting some blood right now! You know, I’m in a good mood, so I purpose a little game before I kill you tonight.” Tsuzuki kept up his guard.
“A game?” The uncle nodded.
“Yes. She asks me three questions, you ask me three questions, and I’ll answer them. In exchange, I ask you both six questions and you answer me. Got me?” Tsuzuki eyed him sharply.
“Six questions, huh?”
“Yes.” Tsuzuki took slowly it all in.
“How did my aunts die?” Anna dove in through her pain. Yasuo grinned at his niece.
“Eager one, aren’t you? Well, okay. I kidnapped them both. My brothers and I kept them in a shield near the dock and tortured them day and night. Momma put the burns on their bodies and killed them.” Yasuo laughed a bit.
“You know, I poured the gasoline all over that little bitch, Yumiko. She begged me not to kill her. It’s so good to hear lambs begging for mercy! And boy did she beg! Guess that little bitch wasn’t as tough as she made herself to be!” Anna gritted her teeth at him.
“You monster!” Yasuo stepped closer.
“Why does your pretty little soul keep resisting me?” Anna glared at him.
“I’d rather be white ash than feed a bastard like you my soul!” Her uncle sneered at her.
“Why kill Yumiko and Kirika?” Tsuzuki asked. Yasuo smirked at him.
“Momma hated them.” Both targets looked shocked. Yasuo nodded.
“Oh yes. She hated them. Momma hated us all. But, she hated the lambs the worst. Daisuke was so close to them. She hated him as well. Momma thought Daisuke was weak and a crybaby. Yumiko and Kirika spoiled him that way. So, Momma decided to punish him by taking the lambs away from your loser of a father! So, momma slaughtered the little lambs!” The last two lines were directed at his niece. Anna glared at him like she wanted to kill him.
“Now, why did you have to make me have to kill my niece again?” Yasuo asked Tsuzuki. Anna looked at the Shinigami as he stood up straight.
“Because we need her to stop you guys!” he said boldly. The old man’s face didn’t change.
“Right…” Sweat drop on Tsuzuki’s head “/Even he doesn’t buy it?/” he thought in stress. Anna cleared her throat. Both men turned to her. The woman rubbed her wrists again.
“How can you follow such a horrible woman?” Her uncle shrugged.
“She’s our mother. We have to do as she tells us. I am sworn to keep her happy.” Anna looked at him in disgust.
“How could you…” Yasuo held up his hand.
“Aint! I get to ask the question time, not you.” Anna shut her mouth in anger. Yasuo smirked at her.
“Now, it the shield broken yet?” Anna glared at him.
“No! It’s just cracked.”
“That’s a shame.”
“Why kill Endo Aya, Jimbo Hoshi, and Joshuya Rika?” Tsuzuki asked. “They don’t fit your type of victim.” Yasuo smiled at him.
“Two reasons: because I could and Endo and Jimbo looked like my sisters. Joshuya was only a warning.” Tsuzuki glared at him.
“Bastard…” Yasuo shrugged.
“Hey! I do what I do to live.” Aki snuffled around a bit. His master patted him to keep still.
“Now, you alone tonight, right?”
“No, we have four demons and my partner with us.” Yasuo thought about that and nodded.
“Ah, I see.” Anna stepped forward.
“Can’t you see that you and your brothers are nothing but pawns to grandma?” Yasuo grinned at her.
“You just don’t understand. Sure we are pawns, but I would even take my life just to keep Momma happy!” His niece shook her head at him.
“That’s sad!” Yasuo glared at her.
“What do you know anyway?”
“She’s just a cold, heartless bitch with no soul!” Both the kitsune and owner became pissed. Tsuzuki cut in just in time.
“How do we free the souls from your family’s curse?” Yasuo grinned at that question.
“The only way to save those poor souls is to kill us.” Tsuzuki took that in for later. Aki stood up and prepared to attack. Yasuo patted him on the head.
“One more question, how shall I kill you both—quickly or slowly?” The pair looked pissed.
“Like hell you will!” Tsuzuki snapped. Yasuo grinned at him like a madman.
“Not an option! Aki, kill the bitch!”
“Yes master!” the kitsune replied. The beast sailed forward and pinned Anna to the ground before she and Tsuzuki could grasp what just happened.
