Hunter x Hunter (Gen) [Week 7, Prompt 2] Title: Semi-Useful Surprises Author:lanerose Rating: G Word Count: 220 Summary: Something unexpected interrupts Gon and Killua's fishing expedition.
"AH!" Gon jumped to his feet, spinning around quickly and bracing himself for a fight. Then he blinked. "What?"
"Something wrong, Gon?" Killua asked. He looked up at his friend, who settled into a less threatening posture. Gon put a hand on the back of his head and smiled sheepishly.
"Not really. Just thought I felt something on the back of my neck." The dark-haired boy shrugged.
"What was it li-IKE!" Killua jumped up, shivering. His nen immediately gathered around him. "Never mind, Gon, I think I know. Like someone putting a cold hand against the back of your neck?"
"Mm, yeah." Gon nodded. "But I can't figure out where it came from."
They stood together on the edge of the pier, and scrutinized their surroundings with gyo. A minute passed, then two. Still nothing. The boys looked at each other and, with a shrug, sat down to resume fishing.
"Leorio!" Kurapika had glanced up immediately when he felt his companion's nen spike. He glared at the physician as he watched first Gon and then Killua jump to their feet, their leaps timed to the two brief spikes. Leorio held up his hands placatingly.
"You wouldn't want me to leave them with those nasty sunburns, would you?" Leorio smirked. "It's for their own good."
