Shizu is fighting someone very familiar....a guy in a knight suit. they fight
"DAMN YOU..!!!!!!" Shizu got hit. he swing his katana and attacks...!! but
missed. he quickly turn around, "[GASPS]" it's too late. the opponent lift
its blade HIGH UP.......
and SLASHES DOWN INTO SHIZUMARU'S FACE...!!!!! blood splatter into the
opponent's face..!! it hurts Shizu MORE THAN ANYTHING or any slash he ever
had. but he didn't cry in pain. instead, he is FURIOUS. he attacks the
opponent with all his strength, striking again and again (but the opponent
defend himself with his blade). then he shouts out very angry,
[SLASH] blood splatter into Shizu's face....... he didn't even blink at all
or anything...his eyes full of anger and hatred........
but not his blood...but his opponent's....
there's a SCAR in Shizu's face.....
the Samuria who was standing in the corpses....
he look up...
his eyes are red as fire...... full of pain and hatred...... there's a
strange glow in his eyes........
and between his eyes......
.....there's a SCAR.....
"..!!!!!!!!!!" Shizu opens his eyes. he was taking a nap..
"SHIZUMARU..!!!!! WAKE UP!! i can't believe you fell asleep??" said Rimururu
they're in a small town or something. in a restaurant. they were sitting
there, eating. and Shizu fell asleep right after he ate one bread. he woke up
VERY early, before the sun rises. he wanted to leave before the others wake
up so they don't have to follow him and bother him....he wants to go alone.
but they woke up before he got the chance to go alone...and that really piss
him off. now he's soooo tired.....
"told ya to get more sleep last night. but you have to wake up before us!!"
"......why can't you all just leave me alone, damnit.." whispers Shizu,
trying to stay awake.
"you think i enjoy tagging along? not really." said Galford, eat a bread,
"that Cella girl is a spoiled girl. i rather go home than save to someone
"she isn't that bad is she?" blinks Rimururu, "there's gotta be a reason why
the prophet took her..."
"well...i think i know." said Kazuki, scratching his head, "she is from a
rich family right? very rich family. i heard they have a lot of very RARE
TREASURE in their mansion....."
"hmm...yea....the prophet did say something bout finding a treasure.."
whispers Galford, "maybe he's a greedy thief who wants a ransom."
"no...there's more to it..." said Shizu, "...he doesn't want money...he
doesn't want treasure...he wants something even more RARE..."
"???" Rimururu and the others stare at Shizu, very confused...
"GET OUTTA THE WAY..!!! MOVE IT..!!!!" shouts a man, down the street.
everyone went to see something...
"what's going on? a parade?" said Rimururu, looking out in the window
"hmm..no. today is no special holiday." said Kazuki
Galford looks outside with Rimururu, "hell no it's not a parade. it's those
"???" Shizu went to see too. he looks outside. the villagers stand aside to
make way for the French soldiers and warriors. there's a lot of them. their
sword is VERY weird looking...it's thin. very thin. how do they fight
that....THING??? Shizu never seen it before. he saw the leader of the French.
that guy is not very old, not very young either. he's much like Shizu, bout
his age too. he have short black spiky hair, and eyes. he's the only Japanese
from those French soldiers....and from the clothes he's wearing (lots of
badges on there), he must be a very important soldier and probably, the
toughest soldier from them all.
and next to the leader, is a knight. is it a man? or a woman? can't see his
or her face. it's covered by the helmet. but the knight is very alert, and
also carry those weird looking swords......
"man...what the hell do they want now?" said Galford
"you know them, Galford?" said Rimururu
"i know who they are." said Galford, very angry, "these jerks are from
France. ever since Amakusa is gone, they want to take over Japan. they want
to influence the Japanese here with THEIR religion. they tried before a few
years back, but failed. now, they came back again cuz Amakusa can't wipe out
their army or hurt them. no longer a threat to them. now, Japan is all for
"WHAT THE @#$%???!!! NO WAY!!!! who they think they are??!!!" shouts Kazuki,
"THEY CAN'T JUST BARGE IN HERE AND TAKE OVER..!!! NOT WHILE I'M AROUND..!!"
"i'll get them. i'll make them go back to France. it's JUSTICE TIME!!" said
Galford, "but now..we still have to save Cella. and capture the kidnapper.
after that, i'm on my own journey to get these French soldiers..!!" then he
look at Shizu, "HEY, RED-HEAD..!!! you gonna join me and Poppy??"
"...i just want to finish this mission so i can get on with my life. i don't
care bout anything else or whatever happen to japan...." said Shizu, not care
Galford is a bit pissed, "you know what? i don't like you...you're mean.."
Shizu doesn't care. he keep on looking outside, "huh??" he saw a caped
stranger in the middle of the crowd. looking suspicious. caped stranger?! he
remember that stranger was part of his past 7 years ago..!! that
stranger...he is the one who destroyed Jubei's house and made the girl go
...he must be the prophet..!!! the same one Lord Shabu-Shabu described..!!!
"IT'S HIM!!!" gasps Shizu
"who?" said Rimururu
Shizu runs outside from the restaurant.....into the crowd without telling his
"SHIZUMARU..!!!!!! WHERE YOU GOING???!!" shouts Rimururu
"THAT KID IS SO RUDE.!!! HE JUST LEAVE LIKE THAT!!" said Kazuki, "Rimururu,
how do you put up with him for 7 years???"
"...." Rimururu didn't answer that. she watches Shizu leaves......she knows
something will happen....
Shizu run through the crowd trying to find the stranger...but the stranger
"..GODDAMN IT!!!!!!!!!!!!" shouts Shizu, very angry. he keep on searching.
that stranger must be kidnapper. he may be the one who made the girl from his
past go away.... but he's also the one who can tell him who that girl is. he
wants to know...
but where is he?? the stranger was here a minute ago...
"damn.....where is he?! why won't he show up??!" said Shizu, "i can't
he didn't watch where he was going, and bump into a girl....
"OUCH..!!!" the girl fall on the ground.
Shizu help her up, ".....nasai gomen.."
"it's ok..i'm fine." said the girl. she straighten her clothes and hair, then
she smiles, "there we go. i'm fine, see?"
she have long black hair (some brownish) tied in a ponytail. and black-brown
eyes. she's about 16. she wears a outfit of dark blue and black, and there's
a small katana on her left side... and she also wears a pendant.
"....you seen a caped stranger around?" asks Shizu
"hmm..nope." said the girl
"arigato." then Shizu walks away...
"WAIT, SIR..!! PLEASE..!!" the girl calls him, "will you please donate some
money to charity?"
"yes, please? we need as much money as we can get to buy food for the
children at the orphanage." said the girl
Shizu have very little money, and he need it for later use. charity?
orphanage? he doesn't give a damn. he's a Samuria, not a tree-lover or
anything. that girl carries a katana, must be a fighter too. but why is she
wasting her time helping charity? stupid idea. very very stupid idea.
"....i can't. gomen."
"BUT PLEASE, SIR??? the children really need it.."
"...that's not my concern."
"..." the girl understands, "ok.."
"look, there's a dangerous kidnapper here. a girl like you shouldn't be here.
you should go home."
"...ok. goodbye sir." said the girl, and walks away.
Shizu watches her leave, "who is she..?" then he saw the stranger OVER
THERE..!! he quickly ran after the stranger...pushing through the crowd. he
stopped at the middle of the French soldiers march, his eyes looking all over
the place searching for that stranger..but couldn't find him again....
"HEY KID!!!! GET OUTA THE WAY!!!" shouts the soldier
"....." Shizu looks around, then he shouts, "@#$% DAMNIT!!!!!!" he lost him
Shizu feel the presence of another Samuria.......!
he looks up, "[GASPS]" the Samuria jumps down to Shizu, and ready to strike
with his blade...!!
Shizu defended himself with his katana....just in time. the Samuria backs
off. and ready to fight, "YOU CAN'T RUN AWAY FROM ME FOREVER!!"
"???!!" Shizu doesn't understand. he saw him before....
Genjuro is kinda old now. not very. he's very angry...
"why are you fighting? what are you talking bout?" said Shizu
"HUH? WHAT HAPPENED TO YOUR VOICE? YOU'RE HOAHMARU, STUPID!!!! AND I'VE BEEN
SEARCHING FOR YOU TO DESTROY YOU!!!" shouts Genjuro
"Hoahmaru??? ME???? no..i'm.."
"WHAT HAPPENED TO YOUR SIZE, HOAHMARU?? YOU'RE SHORTER THAN BEFORE..!! and
your hair...they're not that spiky. they're kinda reddish..." said Genjuro,
".....DOESN'T MATTA..!!! YOU'RE HOAHMARU!!!! TODAY I WILL KILL YOU!!"
"WAIT...HOLD UP...!! I'M NOT...." Shizu tries to explain, but Genjuro is so
pissed he didn't care to listen (as usual). he attacks...!!
"I'M HERE, GENJURO!!!!!!!!" said a man voice.
Genjuro quickly stops, then he turn around, "HOAHMARU..!!!"
it's Hoahmaru. he comes out from the crowd, "you never give up, do you,
"HUH???? YOU'RE HOAHMARU??" Genjuro shakes his head. he turn to Shizumaru,
then to Hoahmaru, then to Shizu again. then he was like, "whoa...shit. my
eyesight is getting worse. which one is that asshole? if i hit the wrong
person, i'll kill the innocent...." then he shakes his head again, "OH
WELL!!!!!!! PREPARE YOURSELF HOAHMARU...AND.....HOAHMARU!!!!!"
then he attack BOTH Shizu and Hoahmaru..!!
"HEYY..!!!" Shizu backs off, trying not to fight, but force to
[CLASH] [CLASH] Shizu, Hoahmaru and Genjuro are fighting in the middle of the
French soldiers march. the crowd and the soldiers watches them fight.
"what's going on? why did the soldiers stop moving?" said the French leader
"...it looks like there's a fight in the front, sir." said the knight,
"Samuria...?" said the leader, "good."
[CLASH] Hoahmaru and Genjuro wrestles with their blades. Genjuro's eyesight
is getting blurrer and blurrer by the minute. he shake his head, trying to
see better. but it's so hard to concentrate.
"YAAAAAAHH!!!!" Hoahmaru saw Genjuro off guard, and attacks..!!
"AAAHH..!!!!" Genjuro got hit 2 times. he couldn't even see clearly. then he
attacks...but he attacks Shizu, "YOU ASSHOLE..!!!!!!!!!"
"..!!!!!" Shizu gasps, and tries to avoid fighting..
Shizu got hit..!
"SHIZUMARU, WE'RE COMING!!!" shouts Rimururu. they saw them fighting and want
to help out Shizu.
"GO POPPY!!!!" shouts Galford, calls his dog to attack Hoahmaru..!
[GROWL] Poppy bites Hoahmaru in the arm, not letting go..!!
"AAAAAAAAAAAHHH....SHIT..!! @#$%..!!!! LET GO YOU STUPID MUTT..!!!!" freaks
Hoahmaru, trying to shake Poppy off.
"HOLY @#$%..!!!!!!!! MORE HOAHMARU'S...?????? DAMN!!!!" freaks Genjuro. his

"Hoahmaru?? what's that?? i'm Kazuki..!!" said Kazuki, trying to defend
"ALL RIGHT THAT'S IT..!!!! I'M PISSED..!!!!" shouts Hoahmaru, "i got a stupid
mutt with his damn jaws stuck in my arm, some strangers come and attack me,
and hunted by a blinded Genjuro. I'M GONNA KILL YOU ALL..!!!!!"
then he perform a powerful attack, "KONGETSUUU...."
Hoahmaru falls on his knees. there's blood from his right leg. they all stop
fighting, and turn around.
"what the hell is this about? fighting in front of MY march?" said the
Leader. he's very handsome, with black spiky hair, and blue eyes. he's about
18 yrs. he's holding his weapon, a sword similar to Shizu's....
"you asshole..!!!" shouts Hoahmaru, trying to stop the bleeding
"that attack always works." grins the Leader, "you Samurai must be rebels
against the French..!!! YOU MUST BE ARRESTED..!!!! MEN, GET THEM..!!!!"
the soldiers aim their weapons to the Samurai's necks....
"TAKE THEM BACK TO THE FORT." said the knight
