Sukihime: Fox and Tiger

I laughed along with Hikari-chan. She was right, we had both missed the stop.

"We'll have to get off at the next stop and walk back," she said.

"That's a long way to walk," I said.

"Not when you're a Zodiac."

I made a confused expression.

"Well, when I'm a Byakko, it's much easier to go places."

"You think we should use our Zodiac forms to get back quicker?" I asked. Then I sneezed as something soft land on my nose.

"What the-" I said, then laughed.

"It's raining sakura blossoms!" said Hikari-chan. She was right. With no roof on the carriage, the wind was blowing the soft pink cherry blossom straight.

The train stopped, the driver suddenly noticing the lack of passengers and a carriage roof.

"Let's go, Byakko," I said, shifting into a red-orange Kitsune that looked almost like a normal fox, except I had silver eyes and two white tipped tails. This was what I looked like as a Kitsune.

Hikari was replaced by a white furred Byakko with black streaks and pale blue eyes. She looked slightly ghost-like, and her movement left wispy trails that lingered in the air for a moment before disappearing.

We ran out of the carriage before the driver had a chance to do more than gape at us. No doubt he would later say that two legendary spirits, a ghostly white tiger and a two tailed fox, had attacked his train and torn the roof off, before running away.

We weren't legendary. We weren't spirits. We were just two girls with special powers.

And then, out of the corner of my eye, I caught a flash of indigo blue.

The End
