The following is rated R, restricted, for Strong/Bad Language, Sexual Content, and Adult Situations Onna-Ranma was running. She was running away. She was running scared. There was blood on her hands, and none of it was hers. There was blood on hers hands and some other stuff too. She didn't want to think about it. She was running. She didn't care where only that it was away. This, of course, wasn't typical Ranma behavior, but everyone has their limits. And today Ranma reached his. The day had started typically. He got up, sparred with his father, dunked him twice, got splashed once, had breakfast, argued with Akane, got splashed again on the way to school, stopped off at Tofu-sensei's to get some hot water, was late for first period class, fought Kuno who was in the way, stood in the hallway with a pair of buckets of water with Akane staring angrily at him, had some more boring classes, had lunch, more boring classes, fought Kuno after school, and started to walk home with Akane. A typical day... Only Ryouga finally found his way back to Nerima that day. Claiming he had found the ultimate martial art technique to finally defeat Ranma once and for all and make him pay for all the misery and pain he had caused him. Ranma yawned, told Akane he'd met her later, and told Ryouga to show him what he got. Ranma's dismissing nature infuriated Ryouga so make that he skipped his usual opening moves and went straight to his new ultimate technique. Ryouga began, "Rin, pyou..." as he started to wave his arms arounf wildly. He pulled a piece of paper out of somewhere and continued, "Tou, sha..." He waved the paper up, down, to the left, and to the right as he said, "kai, jin..." Ranma had enough, so he grabbed Ryouga by his shirt collar and said, "That's the most stupid martial arts technique I have ever seen!" To say that Ryouga welcomed Ranma's comments about his new ultimate technique would be to say that the sky was falling. Which is to say, since the sky is just a collection of gases, he didn't. In fact, Ryouga's battle aura grew darker. In a berserk-like rage, Ryouga attacked Ranma in a more traditional Ranma-Ryouga match. Only this time, Ryouga didn't limit himself to just insulting Ranma himself. No, he included Ranma's other fiancees, Shampoo, Ukyou, and Kodachi, his father, Genma (which Ranma agreed with Ryouga's remarks), and then Ryouga made the big mistake of insulting Ranma's mother. As the insults to his mother mounted, Ranma's sanity began packing. Simply put, insulting Ranma's mother was the straw that broke the camel's back. Let's face it, Ranma was insane since his father tried to teach him the Neko-Ken, only through shear willpower did Ranma appear normal. It was only a matter of time. Unfortunately for Ryouga, he was fighting Ranma when Ranma's sanity snapped. When Ranma's sanity snapped, Ryouga's bones began to snap too. After all, Ranma was just turning the favor.... Basically, Ranma was seeing red. Red as in Ryouga's blood and guts. But he didn't care. In fact, he was enjoying himself greatly as he beat Ryouga into a bloody pulp. He rained down more punches with more power in those few moments than he had in his entire life. Ranma had beaten Ryouga within an inch of his life and had every intention of crossing that inch when, fortunately for Ryouga, Nabiki found him, unfortunate for her. Nabiki had sought Ranma out in order to do a photo shoot to get some more money for the household and to get herself a new outfit for her upcoming interview. As far as she was concerned, Ranma was as predictable as the seasons. So in her right palm, with plenty of room to spare, was the outfit she wanted onna-Ranma to wear. Truthfully, she would have preferred that Ranma, himself, posed for her, but those photos took longer to sell (she kept copies for herself). As soon as she saw Ranma, she threw the outfit at Ranma, who instinctively caught it and she began her little speech she usually needed to say to get him to cooperate with her. Only this time, instead of the usual shame and passiveness she would have seen in Ranma's eyes, she saw fire and death. A smart person would have ran away at this point, and true Nabiki was a smart person, but also true as the fact that Nabiki's ego and pride were as large, if not larger, than Ranma's. Nabiki had always prided herself on surviving in a martial artists world with very little knowledge of the Art. Until now, she had been able to talk her way out of anything. And she thought that this time would be no different. This, of course, is the mistake of Pride, the second mistake Nabiki made that day. The first was miss seeing Ryouga's bloody condition and the blood on Ranma's hands. When Ranma advanced on her, she tried to brown-beat him with her words, something that had until then, worked. Only his time, Ranma gave better than he had ever given before. With each victory, Ranma took another step closer to her and within a few moments, Ranma was practically on top of her. Nabiki's third and some will say final mistake occurred when she brought sex into their "martial art oral-combat match" for soon mere words became action. It was Nabiki's begging that brought Ranma back to sanity, well, more correct, a lucid state of mind. It was Nabiki's screaming for "more" and "don't stop" that startled him back to himself. Of course, Nabiki was saying "more, don't stop" to Ranma, but Ranma heard it as, "stop, no more." Like most dreamers awakening from their dreams and nightmares, he took stock of where he was and discovered that his fly was open, his manhood was erect and deeply buried in a completely nude Nabiki, who was covered completely in sweat and their emissions. Nabiki's face was contorted by her twentieth orgasm, but Ranma, being Ranma once more, thought he was hurting her so he tried to disengage himself. Somewhere around her twelveth orgasm, Nabiki had become a being who's existed solely for pleasure. So when she felt that Ranma was actually going to leave her when she was so close to her twenty-first orgasm, her begging turned to threats, then to pleas, and finally to surrender, if only Ranma would stay and finish her off. She promised him everything, her soul and herself as his eternal sex slave, if only he would give her just one more orgasm. Ranma, not understanding what was going on, began to panic. In his rush to escape he accidently fulfilled Nabiki's pleas. There was a flash of light, lightning, and then it began to rain. Onna-Ranma had never before been so happy for her curse. Thus no longer "connected" to Nabiki. She backed away and saw Ryouga's bruised cursed form, who was passed out. Seeing the bloody pig and the pleading, nude Nabiki, onna-Ranma did the only thing she could. She screamed. And began running. Onna-Ranma ran. But how far can you run from yourself? After what seemed like forever, onna-Ranma finally stop and looked at her surroundings. She didn't recognized anything. She couldn't even tell which way she had gotten there. She was as lost as Ryouga was... Thinking about Ryouga and what she had done to him... onna-Ranma began to cry. After a few moments, two strong arms rapped themselves around her and a gentle, familiar female voice said, "Let it all out, Ranma." Onna-Ranma turned around and saw his mother. She just pulled onna-Ranma into her embrace and made soothing sounds at her child. Onna-Ranma tried to tell her mother what had just happened, at least what she remembered of it, but each time, Nodoka would place a finger on her lips, indicting that she should be silent. After a some time, onna-Ranma didn't know or care how much. Nodoka began to talk, "I suppose now, my son, there's a few things I need to tell you.... Where to begin? Where to begin? "Hmmm... Well, I suppose I should start by telling you that I had been married previous to Genma, your father, although it was a long time ago.... "I was married to Adam. We... We didn't get along that well. He always wanted to work... I... I didn't. When he thought we should go right, I... I wanted to go left. We couldn't agree on anything... So we were divorced.... and Adam... got a new wife, Eve. The slut. But that's neither here or back there. The important thing was Adam was happy.... Right?" Ranma looked at his mother and noticed that she was trying very hard not to cry. Instead she sniffled, cleared her eyes, and continued, "And I... got someone else. Of course, Samael... loved me... as much as he could... and for awhile he made me happy. He even caused that bitch to fall from grace... "Time passed, although I never got over completely over Adam, I did move on with my life. I did a little this... a little of that. Although the sex with Samael was great... but after a while it got a little routine... boring... So we decided to separate. "After a while, I fell in love with Wotan, even had a daughter by him. But then he and others like them had to go... and, of course, he took our daughter with him. For a while I just bummed around for a while." Nodoka paused a bit. Took a deep breath, let it out, and continued, "bored, I took an assignment from the High. It was then that I found your father, Genma. He was about your age now, then. To over-simply it, my job was to corrupt him and prevent him from becoming the best martial artist in the whole." "That wouldn't have taken that much work," Ranma remarked off-handedly, only half-listening to what Nodoka, his mother, was saying. With a sigh, Nodoka answered, "True. Your father has a weakness for food. And yet, even with that weakness, he still one of the top ten martial artists in the world." "Maybe," Ranma replied more for his mother's sake than any opinion of where Genma actually stood in ranking of the world's martial artists. Nodoka became thoughtful and said, "After seeing my assignment fulfilled, I suppose I should have left then. But somewhere along the way, I fell in love with him. Although I couldn't have my Adam, I could, at least, have one of his descendants... Anyway, I observed Genma for a while. Learned what he liked in women, where he liked to go, and most importantly, what foods he liked the best. I spent the next ten years learning how to cook, keep a home, make an Japanese identity for myself, and learning other things I thought I might need to know. Finally, I was able to set my 'plan' in motion... "One of the 'advantages' of our race is that we don't need to sleep all that much. So I put that advantages to good use by spending an entire week cooking all your father's favorites. And there were a lot of them." Ranma could see the slight smile on his mother's face as talked about her 'courting' his father, she continued, "As I said, I spent a full week cooking for Genma, and he consumed it all in under three hours. But it was all worth it. After he relaxed for a bit, he proposed to me and I, of course, accepted. "After being married for a few years, we became slightly worried since I had yet to conceive. Each of us was worried for different reasons. I, mostly, because I was afraid that the lack of children would drive Genma away from me. So I did something I hadn't done in a long time, I prayed to the Creator. I prayed for an entire year until I got an answer... It wasn't the answer I was hoping for, but it was an answer. I could have a child, but only if I was prepared to let your father take you away from me for a time. I also couldn't tell you, until it became necessary, or your father, ever, my true nature... "Since you're here, my son, you can guess that I accepted the condition. It was because of that condition, that I allowed Genma to take you away from me for those ten years to train you in the martial arts like he wanted to do. But I figured, at least in the beginning, what's ten years compared to all the time you and I would have together? How little I knew... Those ten years were the hardest and longest ten years in my entire existance!" Nodoka hugged Ranma closed to herself as she said, "But now, you're here and we can be together... and nothing, short of the Creator, himself, will separate us again, my beloved son." To say that Ranma was confused after listening to his mother's story would be like saying the Pacific Ocean was a drop of water. He noticed that at some point during his mother's story, he had been changed back to his male form. And that he was dry even though up until be began listening half-heartily to his mother it had been raining. Keywords started floating through his minds, such as, "Adam and Eve", "Adam's first wife", "Samael", "Wotan", "true nature", "our race", and the like. Ranma barely noticed as Nodoka guided him into their family home, although the inquitive part of him wondered how they had gotten there. He had thought the place where he had stopped was pretty far away... and yet, in a short time period, his mother was tucking him in -- just like she should to do when he was little. As soon as his head hit the pillow, he fell into a deep sleep. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=  "Rin, pyou, tou, sha, kai, jin, retsu, sai, zen.
