Cella, (-prophet- or -caped stranger-)
it's almost midnight. Shizu and the others went to the Sage's Shrine for the
wedding. they saw a lot of people there...mostly famous and wealthy people.
Genjuro and Hanzo doesn't really like weddings, so they stand outside
"HERE THERE'S SEATS..!!!! FRONT ROW!!! YEAAAAAAAAHH..!!!!" smiles Hoahmaru
"but there's an old woman sitting there.." whispers Charlotte
"hmm...oh well." Hoahmaru sits down, and pushes the old grandma down, "SEE??
NOW WE GOT PLENTY OF SPACE FOR ALL OF US!!"
"@#$%..!!!!" freaks grandma, and sits somewhere else
they all sit down and wait for the wedding to start.
"this shrine is beautiful..." whispers Rimururu, looking around. she saw that
statue in the front. it's a statue of a woman....an angel. she wears a
"this is the Sage's Shrine." said Jubei, "there was an old legend of the Sage
and Kojiro. Kojiro is the "heart" of Ambrosia (the world of evil). every 1000
years he will create or "give birth" a messenger...... who is destined to
free Kojiro from his seal. the messenger is the true evil in our world....he
will slay anything in his path. anything that tries to stop him to reach his
destiny. no creature or human too strong nor powerful can defeat him. he is
the TRUE DEMON..."
"..so what happened?"
"see that statue? that's the Sage." said Jubei, "the legend has it that there
used to be a group of ancient people in the past, who have mysterious powers
to seal away all evil. the "Aura of Heaven" is the key to seal Kojiro away,
and the key to free him from his eternal prison. only the chief or the leader
of those ancient people can use that aura to seal him away. when the
messenger is born into this world....the descendant of the chief will awaken
as a Sage and uses the Aura to stop the messenger and seal Kojiro's powers."
"...." Shizu listen to the story...
"WOW. that's pretty amazing." smiles Hoahmaru, "the messenger can even BEAT
"even samurai ten times stronger than you." said Jubei
"....?" Hoahmaru blinks, "NAH!!! old man, u listen to too many stories!!!
that legend is just a little tale to scare kids!!"
"..so the Sage is the "hope" of this world?" said Charlotte
"yes...without the descendant, Kojiro and the messenger can break the seal,
and bring the Apolocapse unto the world...no..the UNIVERSE.." whispers Jubei
"SO ARE YOU AND CHARLOTTE GOING TO BE MARRIED???" smiles Rimururu
"....uhmm.." Charlotte and Hoahmaru didn't say anything.
"HEY, THE WEDDING HAVEN'T START FOR HOURS..!!! this is getting boring.." said
Hoahmaru, trying to change the subject
"hmm.." Shizu get up from his seat, and went to see Akane...
"come in." said Akane, fixing her dress...
Shizu comes in..., "hello Akane.."
"[smiles]...hey Shizu-chan!!!" smiles Akane, "SO...HOW DO I LOOK???"
"....!!" Shizu is stunned. she looks BEAUTIFUL. she wears a pure white dress
made out of silk, her hair is down... as the moon shines on her, it's like
she's glowing like the moon itself....
she also wears the pendant with her...(as always)
Shizu never seen her like this before...
"SO HOW DO I LOOK, SHIZU-CHAN???" smiles Akane
".....uhmm..uh.." Shizu is very surprised, "[blushes] the dress fits you..."
"really??? thanx!!" smiles Akane, then she went to the window, looking
Shizu joins her, "...Akane, you don't have to do this..."
"just let me and Shogun fight. you have nothing to do with this...you
shouldn't be involved."
"..." Akane didn't answer him. then she said, "...ya know what i wish for?"
"i mean, not only world peace and harmony...but..but.." whispers Akane, "...i
even had a dream about it too. i was waiting for someone in the
Meadow...waiting desperately. don't know when he will show up...don't know
how long i should wait for him....but i just know he will be there. then when
that day comes when he finally shows up....."
then she looks at Shizu, "...i don't have to pretend anymore. i don't have to
pretend to trip just to get a hug..."
"....." Shizu stare at her..
"instead, i will be welcomed by open arms." whispers Akane, "whenever i need
a hug from him, i don't have to pretend to trip just to get it.... cuz he
will want that hug too."
then she sighs, "that's what i wish for. to meet that person again and
welcomed by open arms...TO FEEL BELONG..." then she turn to Shizu, "...TO
MEET MY TRUE LOVE.."
"....Akane.." whispers Shizu..
"and the best of all.." whispers Akane, "i knew when that day comes...true
peace will finally arrive to the world..."
"Ms.Akane, the wedding is about to start.." said the soldier
"i'm coming." nods Akane
she looks at the mirror again, fixing her hair and dress...
"Akane...please.." whispers Shizu, "you don't have to do this....just let me
"...." she didn't say anything
"...AKANE...DO YOU EVEN LOVE HIM???!!" shouts Shizu
"..." she ignores him, then she said, "Shizu-chan, after this...i have so
much to tell you....something that i disovered during these 7 years.."
then she turn to him, "[smiles] wish me luck..."
then she exit the room..

including Shizu. when she passes by him....
he wanted to get up and stop her....
but Galford stopped him...and tel him to calm down..
"..." Akane stops, standing beside her future husband.
the priest nods, "do you, Shogun, the leader of the French army, take this
maiden Akane to be your wife?"
"i do." smiles Shogun
"do you, Akane, the daughter of Jubei, take this general to be your husband?"
said the priest.
"....!!!" Shizu is pissed off now. he hold onto his umbrella....really

"in the name of the Sage's powers of this shrine, i now pronounce you husband
and wife. you two will share happiness together, what's his belongs to her,
