10 years past by like the wind.....everyone have forgotten bout the village
that have been totally destroyed by Zankuro. people continue their living as
if nothing has happened....
In the Monastery, Monks teaches young children to learn and study. they only
have 1 class where all children are taught at the same time by the same Monk..
"...ok, children. what have you learned so far about the difference between
good and evil?" said the Monk
"nothing." said the oldest student. his name is Shogun, "one day i'll be the
GREATEST general and i'll capture every bad guy there is..!! kill every
"KILL???" freaks the Monk, "Shogun...evil doesn't have to be killed to END
"but that's what the legendary Hoahmaru is doing..!!" said Shogun, "he kill
every samuria there is to end evil!!"
"but Shogun...not all demon have to be killed to restore peace." said Shogun,
"killing will lead you nowhere..understand?"
"so what did i just said?"
"GOOD GUYS ARE GOOD, DEMONS ARE BAD. good guys KILL bad guys." said Shogun,
praticing his sword skills. the children laughs...
"[sighs]" the Monk sighs, and gives up....then he turn to another student,
who sits AAALL the way in the back, "what do you think Shizumaru?"
"..." the student turns around. he have red spiky hair, kinda short. his red
eyes are full of innocent....and he looks weak. the other students stare at
him....including a small girl. she stares at him wondering what he will
"so what do you think Shizu-chan?" said the Monk, "should all demons be
"..." Shizumaru didn't say anything at first....he doesn't feel like joining
the crowd. he never does. he whispers, "....demons...punished? are
"well..." the Monk tries to explain..
"YEA THEY ARE!!!!" shouts Shogun, "YOU ARE A DEMON CHILD!!!! SO YOU'RE
"....!!" Shizumaru is surprised, but instead of go and beat the crap outta
Shogun, he just sits there, and be silence as usual, with his head down.
"SHOGUN!!! Shizumaru is NOT a demon child!!!" said the Monk
"my grandma says so. and the glow in his eyes...it's SCARY!" said Shogun,
"and he doesn't even belong here..!! he lives in the Monastery with a Monk
instead of parents like us..!! he must've eaten his parents alive!!!"
"...." Shizumaru didn't say anything, just sits there....and his head down...
"Shogun!!!" said the girl, telling him to stop. she wears the SAME pendant
Julia wore 10 years ago...
"but there is a TRUE evil.." said the Monk, "it's an old legend...Ambrosia.
Ambrocia is the "body" of evil. every evil man or monster is said to be born
from Ambrocia....the HEART of Ambrocia...the TRUE evil.....a demon called
Kojiro. it's not human nor monster. but it can form in any creature it
wants...and walk through shadows. Kojiro was feared by all life
forms.....instead of bringing life, it brings death. instead of bringing joy,
it brings pain and sorrow. instead of bringing dreams, it brings nightmares.
a demon who brings the Apolocapse to all....and to the universe."
"...so what happened to Kojiro?" said the girl
"legend has it that the Sacred Sage used a special weapon, and sealed of
Kojiro into the darkness forever. after that, peace returns.." said the Monk,
"but every 1000 years, Kojiro will sent his "other" half, his messenger, to
free him. the messenger is the most powerful creature alive....it will
destroy anything in its path until it finds the key or the special weapon to
free its master and bring the Apolocapse once again..."
"..." Shizumaru heard the story...
"BUT IT'S ONLY A LEGEND. we shall continue class...but this time, NO MORE
TALK ABOUT DEMONS." said the Monk, and turn around, getting some books....
the Monk is busy getting books, and couldn't see what his students are
"it's our chance!!" said the girl, "c'mon Shogun!!"
the girl and Shogun sneeks away......
"???" Shizumaru saw them, and like all children, his curiousity told him to
follow them. what are they doing sneeking from class?
Shizumaru follwed them all the way near a inn....then he quickly hides.
[SWORD CLASHING] 2 samuria are fighting in front of an inn. the people just
stand there and watch as these samuria fight fiercely. Shizumaru watches the
fight not far away, hiding behind the inn. he also noticed the little girl
who's with Shogun...
the samurai are Hoahmaru and Jubei
[SLASH] Jubei falls in the grounded, wounded. he lost the battle, "...you
have improved, Hoahmaru.."
"so did you, Jubei." said Hoahmaru, and gives his hand to Jubei, want to help
but Jubei refuses, and gets up himself....
"hmphr!!! one fight doesn't make you the best samuria, Hoahmaru!! you will
lose one day!!" said Jubei, kinda pissed that this
sake-loving-irresponsible-lazy slug could beat someone like HIM
"one day?? HA HA!!! YOU'RE A JOKE, JUBEI!!! YOU'RE ALWAYS FULL OF IT!!!"
Jubei walks away, murmuring, "@#$%..."
"hmm..something i said?" said Hoahmaru, scratching his head, "A PEACEFUL TIME
IN A PEACEFUL VILLAGE LIKE THIS IS THE TIME FOR SAKE!!!! YEAAA!!"
he opens the sake bag....
there's nothing. it's empty. he drank all the sake.
"@#$#@$#@$!!%$#^$%^$#%$#%$%&$%&..!!!! NO MORE SAKE???!!!" freaks Hoahmaru,
getting cranky, "i must've drank them all from my last battle back with
he looks around, "where could i find Sake? this village is like a maze!! i'll
NEVER FIND ANY SAKE!!! NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER...!!!"
then he looks in front of him. an inn.
"aaahhh..SAKE!!! I KNEW IT I KNEW IT I KNEW I'LL GET SOME SAKE!!!!" smiles
Hoahmaru, "..and i could sure use a bath RIGHT NOW!! i smell like a pig..!!!"
then he went into the inn.
Shogun and the girl watches Hoahmaru go into the inn.
"there goes the greatest samuria.." whispers Shogun
"no one can seem to beat him. not even my father.." whispers the girl, then
she turn around, "someone is spying on us.."
"??" Shogun don't see any spies..
"C'MON OUT, SHIZUMARU!!!" the girl calls on him. Shizumaru comes out....kinda
scared at first.
"YOU??!! YOU WERE SPYING ON US??!!" freaks Shogun, "YOU BETTA NOT SAY
ANYTHING TO THAT STUPID MONK OR..."
"Shogun!!! he won't." said the girl, then she turn to Shizu, "we're going to
play a game, do you want to play?"
"...play?" Shizu blinks, kinda confused.
"yes." nods the girl, "you just saw Hoahmaru, right? he just beat my daddy,
Jubei. we're gonna get revenge on him..."
"we found out that the "Great One" is afraid of.......ROACHES!!!" smiles
"while Hoahmaru takes a bath..." said the girl, "we'll use a fishing rod and
put a roach in his tub..!!!!"
"WHAT??!!" freaks Shizu
"we're gonna scare him!!!" said the girl
"..isn't that bad?" said Shizu, hesitating, "what if we get caught..?"
"if you don't screw us up we won't!!" said Shogun
"Shogun!!" the girl smiles at Shizu, "c'mon..!! Hoahmaru already went to his
room!! let's do it..!!"
Shogun went into the inn...
the girl and Shizu is still outside. the girl was about to go to the inn,
then she stopped and turn around, "oh!! i'm sorry..i haven't introduced
myself." she gently put her smalls hands on the pendant, and closes her eyes,
"my name is Akane, daughter of Jubei."
she have black hair, some of them brown, in a small ponytail. she have
brown-black eyes. she's about 9 years old, a year younger than Shizu. very
cute in tomboy clothes ^_^ she also wears Julia's pendant.......but how did
she get that?
"and your name is Shizumaru?" said Akane
"[giggles] i've heard of you." giggles Akane, covering her mouth, "you never
hang out with the other kids!"
"...." Shizu lowers his head, not saying anything..
"C'MON AKANE!!!! LET'S GO!!!" shouts Shogun
they went into the inn and joins with Shogun...
"LA LA LA LA LA LA..." Hoahmaru is taking a bath, singing HORRIBLY. anyone
only a feet away even through concrete walls can hear him..!! he take a sniff
his armpit and freaks out, "PHEW!!!! damn THAT STINKS..!!! when was the last
time i took a bath..???!!"
Shogun, Akane, and Shizu is at the next room where Hoahmaru is. Shogun put
the string around the roach, "all right....this is gonna be so cool!! HEY,
DEMON KID!! take this rod." he hands Shizu the rod with the roach, "you see
that window at the top of the wall over there? that's where Hoahmaru is.
throw the roach in there using the rod....then lower it until it falls in his
"bath water???" blinks Shizu, thought he heard it wrong...
"YES!!! just lower the rod until the roach lands in the water where Hoahmaru
is!!" said Shogun
"IT'LL FREAK HIM OUT SO BAD!!! this is so cool!!!" smiles Akane
"..." Shizu hesitates, "...isn't that bad?" he worries about getting into
"if you want to be one of us, then DO IT!!" said Shogun
Shizumaru doesn't have any friends...he always wishes to hang with other
kids. so he climb up to the shelf next to the window, and throws the roach
into the window using the rod.....
Hoahmaru didn't scream or anything....he's still singing and bathing.
"hmm...strange." said Akane, wondering why Hoahmaru didn't scream..
"maybe he's not afraid of roaches." said Shizu, "let's go back to the
"NO WAY!!" said Shogun, stubborn, "you didn't lower it enough, demon kid!!!
LOWER IT MORE.....MORE!!!!"
Shizu panics a little by Shogun's shouting and lowers the rod more and
more.......in a sudden, he lost balance on the shelf......and CRASHES INTO
HOAHMARU'S ROOM..!!!! (remember in Japan, they don't have concrete
walls...only paper walls)
"SHIZUMARU!!!" gasps Akane
"WHATTA @#$%..????!!!" freaks Hoahmaru, very surprised. there's a HUGE hole
in the paper wall and Hoahmaru can see Shogun and Akane..!! but...where's
he stare at the kids, still butt-naked in the tub, "WHAT ARE YOU KIDS DOING
"huh..?" Hoahmaru sees some bubbles right in front of him in the tub. he
takes a closer look....
a head pops out..!!
"WHATTA @#$$%%%$%2...??!!!" Hoahmaru freaks out..!!!
it's Shizumaru. he fell into the tub...right in front of Hoahmaru. they stare
at each other.....silent for a minute. very surprised. then a roach surface
from the water between them......the little bug legs still moving in the
water........Hoahmaru saw the roach.....
"WAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHH....!!!!!!!" Hoahmaru freaks out completely, "WHATTA
@#$%@$@#%$#^#$^#$%@$@$#!$#...!!!!!! A ROACH...!!!!!"
"RUN SHIZUMARU!!!!" shouts Akane, and she and Shogun runs out of the inn..!!
"...!!!!!" Shizu quickly jump out of the water. he's all wet. he begin to
run...!! Hoahmaru quickly grabs a towel, wrap around his waist, and jump out
of the tub and after Shizu and the other kids, "COME BACK HERE YOU KIDS!!!!
Shizu is all wet, and having a hard time running...quite clumsy. but he keep
on running. he finally got out of the inn, and can easily escape from
"AAAAAAAAAHH..!!!" Akane slips and fall...!!! and cut her knee. she's still
on the ground near the inn....
"COME BACK HERE!!!" shouts Hoahmaru, still in the towel...and getting very
close to Akane..!!
"SHIZUMARU..!!" Akane is still on the ground, screaming for help, her hand
trying to reach Shizu....
"...AKANE..!!!" Shizu quickly turns around. he saw Hoahmaru coming...if he
goes back for Akane, they'll both get caught, and Shizu will get in BIG
trouble especially cuz he lives in a Monastery, and he was taught never to do
bad things including scaring a Samuria with a roach.
but he can't just abandon her....
he went back....., "[GASPS]" and stopped. Hoahmaru is in his way, standing
right in front of him....
"WHAT THE HELL WERE YOU KIDS DOING THERE AND....huh???" Hoahmaru notice
something, "....you're eyes....??!!! anyways i'm taking you two back to your
parents..!!!" he reach his hand toward Shizu.....
Shizumaru is afraid, then he shouts, "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO...!!!!"
"OUCH..!!!!" Hoahmaru backs off...
"C'MON AKANE..!!!!" shouts Shizu, run to her side. then they run away as fast
as they can...
"ouch...you @#$% kids...!!" Hoahmaru is pissed. he touches his
chest....there's blood. Shizu cut him with a sharp object he found in the
inn. this cut means no biggie to Hoahmaru...it's more like a baby cut. he
have worse than this...
Hoahmaru stare at the blood, thinking... kids don't know how to fight. don't
know how to use a sharp object and where to aim to kill its opponent. but
Shizu does. he only missed it a little...if it was a bit higher, it would
reach the neck and kills Hoahmaru...
and the glow in his eyes... Hoahmaru hesitates......who is that kid?
