The Path Between + Prologue

I had to roll my eyes. Zechs and Noin were at it, again. It took a lot out of me to resist the urge to throw a fireball at them. Then again, Noin would've thrown a shield between them and the fireball, and continued indulging Zechs.

I swear, Zechs is hornier than a rabbit.

I nudged Shinigami a little farther away from the two. Yes, they were not doing it, but the air around them just reeks of sexual tension. If I wasn't there, they'd probably go to the nearest secluded area and fuck each other's brains out. I stifled a sigh of exasperation, then I noticed two other riders in front of us. I nudged Shinigami again to catch up with the two strangers.

The first things I noticed about the two were the black oak staffs that both of them were holding. Great, blackstaffers. The second thing I noticed was the fact that the two had absolutely no idea where they wanted to go.

"We could go to the West Hills and see if there's anything we could do," the blond suggested, shifting his staff slightly.

"Hn," replied the guy with the funny hair.

I wonder how he keeps his hair like that?

"The West Hills really have nothing there," I said.

The blond jumped, rather startled. The other guy just turned and looked at me. He was going to be an interesting travel companion.

"Hey. The name's Duo Maxwell," I introduced myself. Then, I looked back. Zechs and Noin were not in sight. I sighed. "It seems that my traveling companions are entertaining each other at the moment."

Bang-boy just looked at me with his only visible eye.

"My name is Quatre Winner. Please to meet you," the blond said, smiling. "This is my friend, Trowa Barton." Bang-boy didn't even acknowledge the introduction.

I liked the blond almost immediately. First off, he was not an idiot. Second, he reminded me, for some particular reason, of a little brother, and I really wanted to keep him safe. Third, he talked to me. Yes, Zechs and Noin will talk to me, but their topics always tend to revert to sex. Hmm... I think Noin's just as horny as Zechs, come to think it.

"Since you two have absolutely no idea where to go," I said, "how's about traveling with me?"

Quatre nodded almost immediately.

"Great!" I said, grinning at him. "Now... anybody got any ideas how to pry my other two traveling companions away from each other?"
