Ow.  
The last thing he remembered doing was heading off to get ready for his next scene.

At the moment, he was suddenly aware that he was lying on his back, feeling very sore, especially his shoulder, and he couldn't see anything, presumably because it was dark.

And he felt... strange. It was hard to explain. But then, maybe that was just a concussion. He definitely felt fuzzy enough to have a concussion.

He wasn't aware of it yet, but there was a slow trickle of blood running down the side of his face. He looked alright otherwise, though he was definitely going to have a lot of bruises.

It was an alley, not far from the club, and it was a cloudy night. It was probably a lucky thing for him that he was close to the club, since if he'd been anywhere else he probably would have already been picked up by some of Shadow's less trustworthy residents.

Oddly, or maybe not so oddly, it was Subaru who found him. He wasn't really sure how he'd gotten here, to be honest. He had been out on a job, and it had turned out to be harder than he had been expecting...

He'd been rather tired and out of it as he started to make his way home, and he supposed he'd gotten lost somehow. He was fine now, though he still had no idea where he was, or how to get back. He found the other man by the simple expedient of tripping over him, which landed Subaru right on top of him in a rather compromising position.

"Oh! Gomen nasai, I didn't see- Seishirou-san?!"
Seishirou Sakurazukasakurazuka_kun on May 17th, 2006 05:53 am (UTC)
Ken winced a little. Something, no, someone had just tripped over him and was now sprawled out on top of him. Whoever it was, they weren't very heavy, though, so it wasn't as bad as it could have been.

"Ugh..." His head was starting to hurt, and now that he could see a face in front of him, it was sort of hazy and spinning. He couldn't make out what the boy was saying, but the voice was definitely familiar. "...What?"

Unknown to him, an eagle shikigami was perched on an overhang nearby, watching him with a piercing gaze, its head tilted to one side slightly.

"Seishirou-san, you're bleeding," Subaru said in dismay, pushing himself up so he was kneeling over the older man. He was so busy being concerned that it didn't occur to him just how this looked. Subaru pulled his jacket off and started ripping strips off it to clean and bandage the wound.

"I hope you haven't got a concussion... It's too dark for me to see your pupils. Anou... How many fingers am I holding up?"

He lifted three fingers in front of Ken's face, looking worried.

"Three... I think." Ken felt as though he was missing something, but he still couldn't think clearly. He was starting to see better, at least, and he was more aware of what was going on.

It was about then that he realized that Subaru was practically straddling his hips. He managed not to blush, and immediately tried to focus on something other than the fact that a very pretty boy was... er...

Subaru sighed with relief, discarding the torn remains of his jacket.

"That's right. Good, it's probably not too bad. Do you think you can sit up?"

It was at this point that it occured to him that no, the other man couldn't sit up with Subaru still on top of him. That immediately led to Subaru realizing that he was still on top of him, and in exactly what position.

Subaru promptly squeaked in dismay and scrambled back off Ken, hands flying up in an attempt to cover his furious blush.

Ken smiled despite his headache as he slowly pushed himself up into a sitting position. Subaru was so cute, especially when he blushed like that.

"I'll be fine." He reached up to touch the make-shift bandages on his head. "I'm sorry, I have no idea what happened to me."

"It's strange. I don't know how I got here, either," Subaru admitted, frowning a little. "I got lost heading home from a job, and now I'm here... But this doesn't look like anywhere in Tokyo. Hokuto-chan's going to be worried sick."

"You're sure you're okay, Seishirou-san?"
Seishirou Sakurazukasakurazuka_kun on May 18th, 2006 04:19 am (UTC)
"I'll take a visit to the doctor just to make sure, since I apparently did hit my head on something, but I'll be fine..."

He trailed off abruptly. Seishirou-san?

That's when it finally occured to him that Issei, or who he'd thought was Issei, had been calling him Seishirou all along. And now that he could see him properly, he could tell that he was wearing a strange outfit, too.

What was even stranger was that he nearly called the boy Subaru-kun.

Maybe he'd hit his head harder than he thought, and this was some kind of hallucination. Surely this wasn't just some trick... Issei would never go along with it, if it was.

Strange. If it was a dream, why did his head hurt? And why did he feel like he was being watched all of a sudden?

"Hokuto-chan?" He asked dazedly. He knew that name, too...

"My sister," Subaru said slowly, leaning forward to examine his face worriedly. "Are you sure you're okay, Seishirou-san?"

Maybe he ought to send his shiki out to look around. A doctor was sounding more and more like a very good idea, if they could find one in this odd place.
Seishirou Sakurazukasakurazuka_kun on May 18th, 2006 07:54 am (UTC)
His sister. Of course. His twin sister... They looked very much alike.

Except they weren't really twins. They weren't really brother and sister, they were just cast that way, Ken reminded himself.

"What about you? Are you alright?" He asked, suddenly wondering if Issei hadn't been in the same accident. Maybe. It seemed like a pretty far stretch, for him to be acting like this, but maybe.

Subaru blinked at him.

"I'm fine. I was having a little bit of trouble with sakanagi earlier, but it's strange, it went away about the same time I found myself here."
Seishirou Sakurazukasakurazuka_kun on May 18th, 2006 09:11 am (UTC)
Sakanagi. The power of a spell will rebound at equal power to the one who casts it.

The explanation came before he even had a chance to ask, and he had no idea where from.

I read the manga, that must be where I remembered it from, he told himself, shaking his head. That turned out to be a bad idea, as he winced and nearly gasped at the sudden sharp pain.
lost_sumeragi on May 18th, 2006 08:00 pm (UTC)
"Seishirou-san! Be careful, please!" Subaru gasped, reaching over to steady him. "Maybe we should try to find you a doctor, you really don't look too good..."
Seishirou Sakurazukasakurazuka_kun on May 18th, 2006 11:05 pm (UTC)
Ken was going to agree with him, but suddenly he felt himself sinking back into the same blackness that he'd left just a few moments before. Dammit.

Subaru was going to be hysterical. If it really was Subaru, the poor kid hardly deserved it.

Unfortunately he wasn't being given a choice in the matter.
