         Rin was charging toward him, blazing with blue fire.  And, as he felt the now-familiar burn behind his eyes, Yukio experienced an odd thrill.  Finally, they could settle this.

         Except Rin was suddenly gone, sliding around the burst from his eyes. 

         Before Yukio could turn, weight slammed into the small of his back and drove him to the ground.  He started to twist and throw Rin off. 

         Stinging cold slid down his neck and back in an icy wave. 

         “What are you doing?” he shrieked.

         “You,” said Rin, stuffing another handful of snow down his coat, “need to cool off.”
