"Be With You" by Enrique Inglesias
"And I can't go on,
I just wanna be with you"
Somehow Kendappa-ou knew it had to end this way and the one part of her that hadn't snapped yet realized it. Calmly, rationally she realized that she was ten seconds away from a total breadown. She looked down at her blood stained hands. Blood... so much blood she thought dimly and then she connected the blood on her hands to the form that lay cradled in her arms. She saw those perfect features, features that she had kissed a thousand times.. kissed and kissed. No breath, no breathing.. nothing. Her fingers curled into those shoulders as she drew the limp form to her body. Still completely rational, she drew her own sword from it's sheath, it slid out like a maiden's kiss. As she pressed her lips to that brow, that was when she took her own life. She had given the kiss of death to her love, and now all she could do was join her beyond the veil, perhaps then at least they'd have a happy ending where the fall of Ten-oh didn't matter.
"Touch Me" by The Doors
" C'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon now
Touch me, babe...Can't you see that I am not afraid?"
It was a simple thing to plan his fate. He had orchestrated it all, everything. From the birth of the two children, to the hiding away of his son and sealing him off to prevent the eventual destruction of Tenkai. It had it's costs but really he couldn't concentrate on that as he girded himself for battle. His armor placed upon his form, his sword that was strapped to his back. He looked over his shoulder at the form wrapped up in silk, the same form that he'd meet on the battlefield later, the same person that he had granted the power to defeat him. There had been reservations, but there had been a fair trade for Ashura-ou had gven Taishakiuten for a brief time his heart and soul. He leaned down to press a kiss against that forehead. "See you soon.." he whispered before he stole out of his lover's quarters and headed to his own rooms.

"So if you really love, say yes.
But if you don't dear, confess..
And please don't tell me.. perhaps perhaps perhaps"
There he came again,Ten-ou the son of the Lord Taishakuten. Kendappa straightened her spine, held her harp close to her chest and smiled softly, that silly dithering smile that was reserved exactly for him, the smile of a bubble brain.
"Oh.. hello, Lady Kendappa.. I enjoyed.. your music today." he murmured gently as he offered up the bouquet of fresh lillies to her. She took them and giggled softly, raising them to her nose to take a deep inhale, they really did smell pretty. "Those.. are for you."
"They aer so pretty, you are such a nice guy!" she said with a soft laugh.
"Errh.. well umm I suppose I am." Ten-ou said a bit akwardly so that at first it looked like he was going to turn the same shade as his hair.
"Oh well thank you!" She laughed softly, coyly. "You are going to make some girl a lucky husband, oh wait.. I think I hear your father calling.. I should probably run.. thank you, they are lovely!" and then she ran off with the flowers, it was always so hard to know how to deal with the hearts of a young man.. but the truth was that she already had someone she cared about.. how could she love him when her heart was already give out to that special person, but she didn't want to break his heart.. such a difficullt conumdrum indeed
"Let me Entertain You" by Robbie Williams
"I'm a burning effigy of everything I used to be,
You're my rock of empathy, my dear"
The god of war had awakened. There was only three people left on the field now. Ashura, Taishakuten and Yasha. Ashura-ou's eyes glowed red as he stood there in his form with the Shura-to sword held in his hand. Opening his eyes that seemed to leak out heat. Everyone else lay dead scattered in places around them. The curse, the prophecy was being fufilled right at this moment. The Dark Ashura would destroy the entire world, and it had been a plot between his father and Taishakuten to stop the world from gong under completely. But there was no remorse in Dark Ashura's eyes, eyes that had turned red with the blood that he had spilled. Everything that had been good about Ashura; sweet and innocent had been sealed away, leaving the darkness in it's wake. He advanced upon Taishakuten, the power to kill him was great and he struck Taishakuten down like it was his wish.. and then there was only Yasha left, Yasha who stood there, the only person who did not seek to destroy him. Ironic that it should come to this.
"Maybe Tomorrow" by Emily Bindiger
"Now I will close my heart and sleep awhile
Bless my dream with gentle darkness,
Until I could have my strength to wait the light,
Advancing toward Yasha, looking into those solemn brown eyes as the Shura-to gleamed wildly in the darkenng. And yet, as he was almost there, he stopped in his tracks, a glimmer of the old Ashura was back, the young child who had taken delight in everything; that same child who latched onto the man in front of him and asked him to never leave him. He wasn't leaving him now. There until the end, suddenly he felt close to tears as the two entities inside of him fought for control. "Yasha-ou.." Ashura let out a cry. "I can't.." the god of destruction was going to implode upon him. He clawed for air as everything became dark, the madness consuming him. Only.. one way.. to stop.. it Ashura thought as he pressed the blade to his chest, opening his eyes.. now golden as they stared at Yasha, then with the sickening sound of blade breaching skin, he plunged Shura-to into his chest deeply.. piercing his heart as the sword of destruction tore through him. He heard a cry and then Yasha's form beside him, could feel those warm arms wrap around him. Everything was going fuzzy but he could see those eyes that looked down onto him. "Yasha.. don't.. leave me.." he whispered through tears. "don't.. please.. I.. love.." he heard a shhing noise and he rested his head against that shoulder as his wild hair went everywhere. That was when everything ceased to exist for him. "Wait.. for me.. be... back.. soon.." was his last words before his eyes closed, the last thing he felt were tears upon his brow.
"Tainted Love/Where did our Love Go" verson by The Pussycat Dolls
"And you think love is to prey,
But I'm sorry.. I don't pray that way"
Ashura-ou always acted coolly when he met his wife in court, really all he could muster with her was civility. He did not like how she acted, as if she by her own hands could get the power that she desired. He new every time that she came from Taishakuten's bed because Taishakuten followed it with a trip to his bed. Even though she did not know it, she would by the will of heavens be impregnated by both their children. He would of imagined that had she known that her lover was also her husband's lover, he couldn't imagine that she would of been happy to have realized that. Delusions of granduer, well he'd allow that. He would let her believe that she could affect the outcome of what was already etched in the stars but one thing burned in his mind with certainty, that he would not miss her whatsoever when he was gone, he only hoped that Taishakuten had patience enough to deal with her after the fact.
"Faith by George Michael
"But I've got to think twice before I give my heart away,
and I know all the games you play.. because I played them too"
"Don't grow too attached to me.." Ashura-ou murmured as he stared up at the red silk hangings of his bed. They had dallied for years now, dallied while they plotted. In return for Taishakuten's help, he gave him status as his lover and all the pleasures that his body could afford. He felt an arm curl over his chest, lightly tracing a trail over his chest. He tried not to shiver but it manifested in the prickling of his body in awarance of that touch.
"I think that's like locking the barn door after the horses have been stolen.." He heard that sleepy and utterly lazy chuckle which by it's own right was endearing.
"Are you comparing me to a horse, Taisha?"
"You are much lovelier then a horse, Shura..."
"Lucky you are that I need you alive."
"Quaking in my boots, sweetheart"
Dimly as Taishakuten's lips grazed his earlobe, he knew that what Taishakuten spoke of was the truth, it -was- too late for emotion, much too late.
"Angels" by Within Temptation
"I see the angels, I'll lead them to your door
There's no escape now, no mercy no more,
No remorse because I still remember..
The smile when you tore me apart"
Ashura stood there in front of the murderer of his father, wielding the Shura-to as he looked upon that man who had been his father's murderer, and dearest love. Such didn't move him too terribly, even manipulating the dark machinations of fate; such romanticism was lost on him. There would be vengeance on those who oppose me, the god of vengenance after all thirsted for blood of everyone, including the ones who had tried to stop him. Most importantly the one who wanted to stop him, he'd brook no mercy on them. A single sword thrust was all it took to fell the Ruler of Tenkai. Such was the satisfying squelch of sword in heart, the gasping breath, the whispered 'Ashura-ou" and then silence.
"Illusion" by VNV Nation
A part of your soul ties you to the next world
Or maybe to the last, but I'm still not sure
But what I do know is, to us the world is different
As we are to the world but I guess you would know that
Resting his head on Yasha-ou's shoulder and settled firmly in that lap, it was easy to drift in and out of sleep. However he spent the portion of his naptime watching the face as it stared straight ahead, looking after him. Such warmed his heart, he knew that he had nothing.. both of them had nothing except each other. Ashura knew what Yasha had sacrificed in order to protect him, and it made him feel warm and fuzzy even while apart of him lamented over the bad luck that seemed to follow him.. such that had started with Yasha's clan and the loss of so many others. His eyes fluttered closed as he knew that Yasha was the only one he could count on and he wanted to cling together forever, he wanted to destroy the God of Tenkai for causing so much pain and suffering, and most importantly, he wanted to help Yasha avenge his clan. They were the same, both of them.. and perhaps it was that thought that kept the good in him from being wiped out by the dark.
"My Secret Garden" by Depeche Mode
"My very only secret and I had to go and leak it"
"Souma.. you have everything you need right?" Kendappa tried to keep her voice light and breezy as she started to fold and refold all of the clothing that Souma was taking with her on her grand adventure. She hated creases and she attacked them with renewed vigor.
"You know Souma, whenever one goes on a trip.. the most important thing that they can have with them is clean underwear.." she cut off Souma's solicitous voice as she scuriried around and fished into Souma's underwear drawer for those panties that she always insisted on wearing, as if her Souma -needed- panties.. well perhaps she did because Souma was going off and panties would protect what was hers... maybe. She folded those with renewed vigor.
"I also packed extra water skiens for you.." Kendappa continued to ramble on as she folded them as compactly as they would go and then stuffed them into the traveling pack.
"Kendappa.. will you please look at me" the voice had a little bit of desperation to it now and Kendappa turned to look at her dearest friend and lover.
"Souma.." her eyes locked with Souma and then soundlessly she dropped the panties that hadn't made it into the bag on the floor and then ran toward Souma and grabbed her up in her arms. "Souma.. take care.. please." even though she knew that the next time that they met it would.. oh but she didn't want to think about it right now. Instead she wanted to burrow herself in those arms and be showered with kisses.
