...I was just letting them think they had the advantage!" He grunted in pain as he pushed himself to his knees. He stood up despite the pain shooting through his body and looked victoriously toward the beautiful woman who had saved him from further injury. "Why did you stop them? What do you want from me?"
"Well, for a start, I'd like to buy you some lunch. It looks like you haven't eaten in a while."
The boy looked cautiously at Yoruichi, "I don't know why you're being so nice to me, but if you want to feed someone, I've got two hungry little sisters that could use a good meal. That's the reason I've been stealing-they're always so hungry and no one really wants to hire a kid my age so I don't know how else to take care of them." When the boy finished speaking, he face was flushed with shame at his confession and Yoruichi knew she had her angle.
"I would be more than happy to buy the girls' lunch. Where are they?" The boy looked to his right and waved. Two young girls ran toward him from an alleyway and they both spoke rapidly, "Ichi-nii! We were so scared! Are you okay? Those men were so mean to you!"
"I'm ok girls! You see me standing here, dontcha? Yuzu, Karin, this lady is…errr…"
"My name is Shihoin Yoruichi but you can all just call me Yoruichi!" She smiled and knelt down to be on the same level as the little girls, "Are you two hungry?"
