Yagi woke up on the floor with Victor shaking him. “Yashagami!”
Yagi groaned and put a hand to his head. His blue eyes met the panicked brown ones in front of him as Victor sat unsure of what to do. Yagi tried to sit up but Victor had him stay laying on the ground where he was. “You fell pretty hard. Just relax, okay? Just take your time. There’s no rush.”
“I want to sit.” He mumbled. Victor nodded and helped him sit up and lean against a wall for support. The last thing Yagi wanted was a demon to be helping him, but he knew deep down-demon or not- he needed help from someone and right now that someone was Victor.
“Let me go!” Sako’s voice yelled. Yagi looked in his direction and found him on the ground trying to pull his hand free from a restraint on the bed. He looked at Yagi and growled as he tried to pull his hand free again. “Let me go! Let me go! Let. Me. Go!”
“Your arm.” Victor went on to explain to Yagi. “It’s still bleeding. Your head too. We haven’t trained together yet so Sako doesn’t know how to control himself.” He walked over to Sakuro and shook his head, “You’re gonna dislocate something if you keep pulling that hard.”
Sako paid no attention to him other than biting at him and kept on trying.
He wanted Yagi’s blood.
Yagi wiped the bloody blonde strands of hair out of his face and then touched near the wound. He immediately winced in pain and scolded himself for doing so.
Victor did his best to cover the open wound with gauze but it didn’t do much since Victor had no clue what he was doing. To Yagi, Victor was probably making it worse.
Yagi called out Doctor’s name and who came in a few seconds later looking completely surprised since this wasn’t how he had left them a few minutes ago. He knelt down next to Yagi, “Are you okay?” He pulled away the gauze Victor had tried hard to put on and then frowned. “How did you…? Did you faint again?”
Yagi nodded, “Yeah but I’m fine. Sako needs help.”
Doctor handed Yagi fresh gauze to press against the wound and then stood up and went over to Sako. He put his hands out to try to get his attention. The only thing he got out of Sako’s attention was Sako trying to bite the hand closest to him. Doctor backed away as Sako stood up and tried to reach for him. Then he went back to trying to pull his hand free. “Let me go!”
Doctor went over to a counter at the other end of the room and opened a cabinet. He pulled out a syringe and walked back over to Saruko. Sako’s eyes widened and he sank to the ground trying to back away as far away from Doctor as possible. He pulled on the restraint even harder to try to get free faster.
Doctor got closer and Sako started kicking to keep him away. “No! No! Stay away!”
Doctor stopped and stood straight, “Branson, cover up Yagi’s arm. Victor, I want you to get ready to catch him if he faints again. Sako is back now. If he were still in his demon phase he wouldn’t be scared of this.”
Sako breathed quickly and stayed sitting on the ground, still attempting to pull his hand free. He watched the syringe in fear.
“You’d think what you’re trying to give him is poison from how he’s acting.” Victor said as he helped Yagi to his feet.
“Saruko has a fear of needles.’ Doctor explained. He looked at Yagi seeing that Branson had finished bandaging Yagi’s arm. “Go ahead and release Sakuro.”
Victor did and Sako stayed sitting on the ground. He lowered his gaze to the ground, ashamed of himself. He wrapped his arms around himself and pulled his legs close. After a minute he whispered, “Can I see Yagi? I want to apologize.”
Hesitantly Doctor said yes and then Leader walked in. But he didn’t do anything. He just moved to a wall and stood there as he watched them. Yagi wondered why. Did he want to see if Sako attacked him?
Sako stood up and moved over to Yagi. He hugged him and his voice wavered, “I’m so sorry, Yagi. I don’t know what’s happening.”
Yagi weakly hugged him back with his unhurt arm as Doctor knelt down and started toward the gauze around Yagi’s head, “It’s okay.”
Sako stepped back with his eyes stuck on his own hands, not being able to look at Yagi. “No, Yagi. It’s not okay. I keep wanting your angel blood and I can’t stop myself from attacking my best friend. Hell, I don’t even know how I’m stopping myself right now.”
Yagi put a comforting hand on his friend’s shoulder even though he wanted to get away from him, “No, Sako. It’s fine. Don’t worry about it. You just need to train.”
“Yagi is right, Sako.” Victor said. Branson and Doctor nodded in agreement.
“Yagi…” Sako said with a pained voice. He shrugged Yagi off, “You need to leave.”
With that Sako moved to his bed and lied down with his back to everyone as he wrapped his arms around him again.
“Sakuro, do you want me to sedate you?” Doctor asked.
Sako nodded and within a minute he was completely out.
We all went outside and Doctor sighed and ran a hand through his dark hair, “I can’t allow anyone but Victor to see Sako anymore. Until Sako can control himself, it’s too dangerous. Especially for angels.”
“Wait, what about Ryan?” Victor suggested. “If two demons help Sako, then the progress will go much faster. Especially with Ryan.”
“Good idea. Go get Ryan real quick.” Leader said.
Victor ran off and returned a few minutes back with a person shorter than him with a black hoodie covering their features. Yagi frowned, another demon to work with, he thought. Were there more demons than angels here? Was Ryan another boy or was Ryan a girl? Did Ryan want Yagi’s blood too?
Yagi backed up to Doctor's side as he pushed the thoughts aside. The last place he wanted to be was near a demon.
Ryan lowered the hoodie and Yagi felt his heart beat faster. He tried not to stare but it was difficult.
“What’s wrong with him?” Ryan asked. Her vivid blue eyes looked right at Yagi’s own. She crossed her arms and scowled. “You thought I was a boy didn’t you? You thought the name Ryan belongs to a boy didn’t you?”
“No! Of course not!” Yagi said much too quickly.
She scoffed and looked at Doctor as she tossed her brown straight hair to the side, “So where is he? This guy named Sicko?”
“His name is Sakuro.” Yagi growled. “He goes by Sako. Not Sicko.”
She rolled her eyes. “Gee sorry. I didn’t mean to offend your boyfriend. No need to get all mad about it.” She said sarcastically.
Yagi couldn’t think of a comeback other than, “He is not my boyfriend. He’s my best friend, idiot.”
She rolled her eyes again. If she weren’t so irritating, Yagi would have fallen in love with her. She had the prettiest eyes he had ever seen and even though she was short at about five foot four or five inches, she was beautiful. He hated how his heart beat faster because of her just standing there.
She moved her glossy brown hair away from her shoulders, “So are we all gonna gawk at me or are we gonna help the half demon?”
“He’s asleep right now. I want to talk to you and Victor and introduce you to the rest of your section.” Doctor said as he gestured to the four of the hybrids.
Branson smiled, “Awesome!” He nudged Yagi, “I didn’t know we’re in the same section, Yashagami!”
“‘Yashagami’?” Ryan asked. She smiled a little, “That’s a mouthful. Don’t you go by something else like your friend?”
He glared at her, “Not that you’re gonna address me by.”
