Names of characters in this chapter:
Jubei, Shizumaru, Akane, Hoahmaru, (unknown)
Shizu and Akane spend most of the night at the Meadow...talking and watching
stars. then they went home...
Shizu went to drop Akane off at her house first...
it's starting to rain.....the clouds gather...
[thunder] it's raining hard now when they get to Akane's house. but something
is wrong. the house is destroyed... and Jubei is laying down on the
ground...wounded. there's blood everywhere. a caped stranger is standing in
front of Jubei.... he must be the one who did this to Jubei and the place....
"[GASPS]" Shizu is shocked...
"DADDY..!!!" Akane gasps, when she saw her dad wounded..
"AKANE..!!! NO..!! GET AWAY!! RUN!!!!" shouts Jubei
but it's too late.
the caped stranger run toward Akane w/o hesitation and pulls out a Katana and
"[GASPS]" Akane gasps, very scared....the stranger moves very fast and not
enough time for Akane to escape......
"NOOO..!!!!" shouts Shizu, and protects Akane.... he have his eyes closed
[silence] the rain continues... nothing happened.
"..." Shizu still have his eyes closed, protecting Akane. then he opens his
eyes, notice nothing happened, "..huh?"
the sword is just 1 INCH away from his head. but the stranger stopped before
it hits Shizu...it didn't attack him. but why? one hit in a kid's head with a
katana immediately kills the kid...but the stranger didn't do it.
"MOVE." said the stranger, in a low man voice...
but Shizu refused.
[BAM] the stranger hit him..!!! Shizu falls into the ground...
"SHIZUMARU..!!!" cries Akane, "[GASPS]" she turn around..the stranger walk
towards....holding the Katana....
her eyes are full of innocense..very sad. trembling. helpless...
and she's only a kid.
the stranger lift up its Katana........
the lightning flashes...and you can see there's a RED small orb and a rope in
the Katana's handle (the same sword Shizumaru have----remember in SS3?)
then the stranger STRIKES..!!!!!
Akane isn't hurt. Hoahmaru is here!! he is just there in time to stop the
stranger.....defending the girl using his sword...
"hmm..never seen you around before." said Hoahmaru, grinning, "you ok, kids??"
"..." Shizu gets up, his head hurts like hell..
the stranger jumps and make a back flip......away from Hoahmaru.
"TIME TO TEACH YOU A LESSON!!!" Hoahmaru attacks the stranger, and they start
Shizu and Akane stands aside....watching them fight. especially Shizu. he's
very impressed the way Hoahmaru beats the crap outta that stranger.... a
little bloody but he likes it.
"SONGETSUZAN..!!!!!" Hoahmaru makes a Songetsuzan, hit the stranger and knock
him to the ground.....
the stranger gets up, but not exactly wounded. only a little. but he give up
"hmm..?? where'd he go?" said Hoahmaru, scratching his head..
"AKANE..!!!!" Jubei calls on his daughter..
Akane run to his side, "DADDY!!"
"..." Shizu watch her go. his head still hurts..
Jubei hugs his daughter, "i'm SO GLAD YOU'RE OK..!!!! if something happened
"what the hell happened here, Jubei?" said Hoahmaru, "who was that asshole?
doesn't look like Zankuro.."
".." Jubei gets up, "it's NOT Zankuro..."
then he walks away, "c'mon Akane...we're leaving.."
"..." Akane didn't question him at all. but she knows if she leaves, she'll
never come back..
"..Akane.." whispers Shizu, standing there.
Akane didn't say anything. she leaves w/ Jubei, walking by his side. she turn
her face around to Shizu, her eyes full of sadness..not want to go.
then they're gone....
that was the LAST TIME Shizu saw her....
"YOUR WELCOME, JUBEI!!!!!!" shouts Hoahmaru, "...asshole." then he scratches
his head, "..hmm..didn't know he had a daughter.."
then he walks away...
Shizu stand there in the rain....thinking. then he turn around to Hoahmaru,
"Mr.Hoahmaru..!!! WAIT..!!!" he went after him, "MR.HOAHMARU...I HAVE A FAVOR
TO ASK OF YOU!!!"
"a FAVOR?? hahaha. you broke into my bath room and make me chase after you
wearing nothing but a towel and YOU want me to do you a favor?? haha" laughs
"but PLZ, MR.HOAHMARU!!!" said Shizu, "CAN YOU TEACH ME????"
"teach u what?"
"..." Shizu don't want to say it.. then he finally did, "I WANT TO BE A
"...!!" Hoahmaru stops, "what did you say?"
"I WANT TO BE SAMURIA, MR.HOAHMARU!!! i want to learn how to fight..!!!" said
Shizu, "i want to avenge my parents and my village...I WANT TO BE A SAMURIA!!"
Hoahmaru turn around, and gets serious, "kid...do you what you're saying??? a
Samuria?? you're only a...KID!!! a Samuria is more than just fighting. it's a
lonely life. in battles, it's either life or death. you have to feel blood,
pain, cuts, etc....BIG BOO-BOOS..!!! you don't want to be a Samuria..!! you
got your childhood going on now...don't want to be like me."
"I DON'T CARE.!!! PLZ, MR.HOAHMARU!!! my parents were killed by Zankuro and i
have no one!!!! i want to avenge them..!! I WANT TO BE A SAMURIA..!!!" shouts
"..." Hoahmaru hesitates, then he sighs, "ok....follow me."
Shizu smiles, and follows him, "THANX, MR.HOAHMARU!!!!"
"first, we gotta teach ya how to talk like a Samuria....do NOT ever call me
"mister". makes me sound old."
ever since then, Hoahmaru taught Shizu everything he knows.....how to fight,
etc. Shizu is clumsy most of time....can't even handle a katana. but he have
lots of confidence....each year always thinking bout defeating Zankuro....his
anger makes him a betta fighter each day.......and he grew over the years...
