EXCERPT. With "cover" illo:
Disclaimer: Kenshin does not own the Yuu Yuu Hakusho characters (they are the property of Togashi Yoshihiro et al), and does not make any money from said characters.
What Kenshin does own, however, are all the original characters in this work. Any attempt to "borrow" these characters will be met with the katana, or worse.

Could it really be a place where dreams come true?
Nightwalk Pavilion (Part 1: Barrier! Hiei and Yuusuke Walk Into A Trap!)
On that soft June night, the main drag was deserted, but not deserted enough.
"Yo, Hiei!" From the end of the block, someone hailed him, and with a long-suffering sigh, Hiei stopped.
Six feet of gristle and bone, with a granite slab-face topped by a carrot-colored buzz cut, Kuwabara Kazuma approached.
Every three or four steps, Kuwabara took a little sidewise jog, then corrected his course. Strange, Hiei thought, like he can't decide whether to stay or go.
Kuwabara lurched to a halt. He looked down at Hiei. He rasped, "Just the guy I wanna see."
"I doubt it." Hiei prided himself on having gained enough patience to handle even Kuwabara with detachment. He had, in fact, just been ejected from filming a rather involved commercial for a new department store. Two weeks of close confinement with make-up artists and costumers poking at him like some Barbie doll, and Hiei had refrained from slaying a single one of them.
Then the financial backers withdrew, and the project was canceled. Still Hiei had slain no one. This was progress.
