[Continued from kabuki streets , part of Mizuki arc']

Gin arrives in the City of Yoshiwara with Mizuki on his back and Shinpachi carrying Kagura following right behind him. They decide to drop by Hinowa's shop to explain the situation to its proprietor ....

........a couple of minutes later....

"I am sorry to impose, but is it possible if we hide here for a while Hinowa-san? Don't worry I won't demand any sake or your women.... unless you are offering of course...."

Hinowa: Sure, sadly most of our courtesans are busy, I could send over Tsukuyo if you want, I'm sur- (smiles)

*Shinpachi just arrives with Kagura in his back, still exhausted from the previous battles, he abruptly interrupts Hinowa*

Hinowa-san...(haa haa)...p-please, could you please...(haa haa) get a doctor...for K-Kagura...

*The moment he lies Kagura on an available bench, he slumps to his knees, his wounds aching, and blood running from the slash he received from Chishio...*

(haa haa) P-Please...get her a doctor...

*looks at Gin-san*

music plays: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i_Ag32qKFko

(still trying to recover from the wounds he received, tears welling up in Shinpachi's eyes)
(haa haa)A-Arigato G-Gin-san...arigato...for s-saving Kagura....I was too weak...(haa haa) I'm always too w-weak...If I were s-stronger...if I were stronger I could have p-protected Kagura(haa haa)...I t-thought....I thought that I could help you...that...that I could help Mizuki...but a-apparently I'm useless...all I'm usefull for are my straightman antics...my glasses...no wonder...no wonder opponents d-don't take me seriously... (gives a weak laugh) ha ha...I-I'm pretty useless...for...someone...w-who works for Yorozuya Gin...m-maybe I should just give up...(long silence, then the rest Shinpachi mumbles)...on being a samurai...

"Weak? Useless?...... Shinpachi...... lemme tell you of a story about a weak, stupid and coward of a man. A long time ago he lost many many things.... burdens.... things he was too weak to protect. Why was he the only left... he wondered.....the pain was great.... he vowed to never carry burdens ever again. But you know what? He met a young samurai... a samurai full of life and aspirations... a samurai who taught him that burdens are worth carrying regardless of the pain that comes with it... a samurai that taught him to move on. Shinpachi.... you are strong... never faltering to do the right thing to protect people.... something that this coward of a samurai couldn't do a long time ago..

Shinpachi.... don't you ever say that you are useless..... please..... without you.... that idiotic samurai would still carry dead fish eyes. If you weren't there Kagura would have died..

*Gin Smiles*

Please give up on being on a samurai? Shinpachi, how could you give up on being on a samurai.... when you are already one?

*The young Kagura starts to regain some consciousness slowly. Her head is throbbing. She can barely remember the events that had transpired. She finds herself in a strange room. Startled, she calls out to her friend thinking they were still fighting*

"Shinpachi! Are you ok-aru?!"

*She attempts to get up, but her body is still feeling the after-effects of the battle that ensued*

"Where....Where am I?"

*after hearing Gintoki's words of encouragement, Shinpachi feels slightly better, but only for a moment, the loss of the battle weighed heavily upon him, especially since he it was not only his life that was on the line, but that of Kagura and he could not forget that if it were for Gintoki, Kagura wouldn't be with us...*

A-Arigato...Gin-san...but...please....could you please give me some t-time to think...I don-

*see's that Kagura woke up*

K-Kagura!...A-Are you a-alright? (his words were heavy, almost forced, he could feel that his strength was going...talking to Kagura and Gintoki would just make Shinpachi even more depressed than he already was, so he quickly changes the subject...)

*after a pause, turns to Mizuki, and starts talking quietly...*

Mizuki-san...I remember you mentioned Kondou's name...his first name...I take it you know him...

*Gin is relived to see that Mizuki and Kagura are at least allright ... although he is worried that Shinpachi is too hard on himself"

"Mizuki, I know I said you don't have to tell me anything about your past... and you don't have to. Can you please tell us who were those guys who were following us ? Knowing more about them will give us a better chance at protecting you"

*Mizuki bows her head, a hand on her chest... uncertain how she'll answer. She's come this far to ask help and now.....*

(whispers)... "Those men... they uhm..." (lowers her voice even more) "They're amantos of a certain race. They worked for a very powerful man and..." ....*lifts a shoulder to her cheek in insecurity*....

"I.... I don't want to go back there. They want me to.... its hard for me to explain... whenever I try..."

*a lump on her throat as if words just can't find its way through her*

"I'm sorry. Its just been a harsh nightmare for me. I truly don't want people getting hurt anymore. I don't sleep that often anymore either. Closing my eyes only makes me see that man's face. I'm... I'm sorry."

*Mizuki looks pleadingly to Gin*... "Please. I can see that you all know Isao-san and.."

*She looks at Shinpachi's querying face.... lowers her head in part-demure.. her cheeks turning pink*.... "that man, Isao Kondou. He means so much to me. He did a lot for me. He uhm..." *blushes even more*.... "He spoke feelings for me."

*the normal Shinpachi would have immediately followed with a tsukkomi, but seeing that he was still depressed over the last battle, Shinpachi remained quiet over Mizuki's remark.*

*he remains silent for a while*

M-Mizuki-san...Gin-san...I-I think we should go to the Shinsengumi headquarters. If Mizuki won't talk about her relation to Kondou-san, then maybe...(a sudden sensation of pain ran though Sinpachi's body, his actions and movements were suddenly becoming more and more stiffer, Shinpachi, trying his best to remain conscious continues talking)...maybe Kondou could tell us something about her, a-and...we...could...get...some clues as to why those Amantos are after her. I m-might have an...idea...as...to how...w-we...can...sneak...her inside...

(Shinpachi's breathing was becoming more and more irregular, it seemed like Hinowa still hasn't returned with a doctor...summoning his last strength, he silently utters...)
S-Shin...sen...gumi...u-unif-

*an image of the time the Yorozuya trio were wearing the uniforms pops into head*


(but before he could utter the last of his words, he collapses to ground...after a few seconds, a pool of blood was forming around him, it seemed that due to Shinpachi's constant movement, his wounds from the battle opened up. He did not have the chance to treat it yet, seeing that they were on the run from those Amantos, and that he had to carry Kagura the whole time. Before losing consciousness, he could see the outline of everyone, around him, coming closer...)

*thinking* (that's right...I'm not alone...I have my friends...my nakama...)

(it might have been the blood loss for Shinpachi, but he could have sworn that Gintoki was engulfed in a silver light before passing out)

*Sees her friend drop to the ground unconcious*

Music Link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iz8a53VSoN0

(Music Start)

*With tears in her eyes. She goes over to Shinpachi who is now on the floor*

"Shinpachi!.........I'm.......I'm so sorry..."

*Guilt consumes her soul*

"...this happened because you were trying to protect me...it wasn't you that held me back...It was my fault..."

*Looks over at Gin-chan with a serious look on her face*

"Gin-chan! I-I think we need to lay low for a while-aru. We can't risk going to those idiot policemen-aru. Those guys looking for us are dangerous. They won't stop...they won't stop until they find us-aru...We can't go out..It's too dangerous-aru...I don't want any more people...I dont't want you guys getting hurt.."

*She breaks down crying, blaming herself*

If anyone should feel guilt it should have been Gin, for infecting his beloved family with the tendency to harm themselves for those who they need to protect....

*Gin pats Kagura on her head * :

"Kagura , there is no need to blame anyone for what happened ......you protected him.... he protected you ......

Pain is a funny thing isn't Kagura ? Your body and mind create it to tell your soul that something is wrong ..... but you know what ? You can choose to be consumed by it.... to blame the burdens that you have taken up.... or you put up with it.... telling yourself that the pain is worth the burden. Kagura .....you are strong.... after alll if Shinpachi truly didn't believe so... he wouldn't take the pain of protecting you. If you didn't think Shinpanchi's soul was worth the burden...then you wouldn't protect him either ?
......blaming yourself for what has transpired....is like blaming yourself for taking up the burden of having friends isn't it ?

Shinpachi wouldn't want you to worry about suffering this burden of friends.... that is why we are together... supporting each other so that next time we can laugh and marvel at each other's prowess of bearing this burden..."

*Gin smiles*
"I can't wait to telll Shinpachi that you cried for him..... young boys like him will fall for that stuff. you know ?"

*Kagura calms herself down a bit*

"Then Gin-chan, what should we do-aru? These Reiki, they're really strong. Even you're all beat up. I feel like the only reason we got away was because they underestimated us and were just toying with us-aru. That one that Shinpachi and I fought, the one that smiled a lot, he was really strong. I think he was just playing with us though-aru"

*Looks at Gin-chan with a look of concern due to the current situation*

"Even I've heard of these guys before-aru....To-san used to tell me stories about them.."

"I will admit these guys are very powerful.....perhaps there is a way to save Mizuki without a direct conflict. Considering that gorilla knows about Mizuki in the past, perhaps he will go out of his way to help us out. I mean we will at least have a better chance .....I hate to say it but.... she will have a better chance with those police bastards......"

"Kagura can you also tell us what your father said about these guys ? Any info might be of use"
