The sound of swords clashing. A very common sound in battle between two warriors. But this battle, my battle, is unlike any other. Well, in my opinion, its not a normal fight. I can't see who my enemy is, because all I see in my enemy is a shadow. And like a shadow, it is blank as night. So my enemy is anyone....anyone who I have forgotten, a leftover fragment of someone. But who is this shadow I see before me? Whoever it is, I'm glad I get to fight it....with my own strength. Now, the both of us stare down at each other, ready to strike. And in that moment, the shadows eyes revealed themselves. Piercing silver eyes glared deep at me, dead-set, ready to come at me with full force. My feet sinked into the muddy ground as the rain fell on top of me. I hear my heart beat fast with each passing second, for all we did was ready ourselves for the final strike. I hold my sword very carefully to the side without blinking or looking away. The slightest movement decides this final move of ours. As I looked deep in this shadow's eyes, I knew that at the end of this one move, one of us....will be dead. But theres no going back now, I have to finish what I started. Rain dripped off both our blades, the thunder and lightning sounding in the air......oh what a perfect setting for someone to die. And with that....I DASH FORWARD! The sensation that filled my body within these few seconds...it felt....like something was pushing me...towards this shadow who I see running, blade ready at the side, and dashing with the same speed. I was ready...the shadow was ready....our swords were ready....we were ready. Each step grew closer, only seconds from the final strike. My breathing was heavy....nothing else was on my mind. One more step...thats all it takes. Our swords left our sides, and....WE STRIKE!!!
The second our blades made contact with one another, I saw....this huge light...cover my eyes. Within this blinding light....a voiced echoed...." Remember....." Remember what exactly? The light began to fade away...but what I saw next...i wasn't too surprised. The light was gone, and my vision was clear....all I saw....was a cieling fan, spinning ever so slowly. Well....this is a familiar sight. Staring at the cieling fan is so fun in the morning. Head hurts every time too...*sigh*...never gets old....oh well. Having the same dream for about two weeks gets very annoying, but what can you do. I looked around my bedside and checked the time. 7:05 AM......great....my favorite time of the day...yea right. I got out of bed and walked to the bathroom, without tripping over my clothes on the way there of course. I turned on the sink and gathered some water in my hands, splashed it in my face to wake me up. I looked in the mirror and saw myself, Raijuu Ikazuchi......*yawn* introductions are tiring sometimes. Early mornings....not a great thing for me to look forward to. I walked out of the bathroom and into the kitchen to look for anything that looked like food. Leftovers, a carton of milk gone bad, and some bottled water never opened. I closed the fridge door and got nothing. I looked around in my apartment, while putting on my school clothes, trying to find one of my charms I always carry with me. Don't know why, but for some reason I'm always fond of collecting rare items I've never seen before, but whatever. I turn on the tv while pulling up my pants. I then walked around my apartment, not paying much attention to the tv, just needed something to drown out the the silence in the room...moving on. The news was on, saying something about a robbery that happened last night, but I didn't hear the full details. I was fully dressed and was somewhat ready to leave, although I was....less unhappy about this day. School isn't the only thing I have to deal with, that is...if you count unemployment as one of them....well I would. No job means no money, and no money means no food for my stomach...doesn't that pattern sound so nice? Yea, didn't think so, but anyway. Walking out of the building, I watched a few people pass me on the sidewalk. Walking slowly to school, I stared at the sky. *sigh*.....Another Day......
The school wasn't too far from where I was, just like a few blocks away. Walking was alright for a short period of time, but if your like me, and if theres not alot of people looking, you just wanna run like hell. But walking on the sidewalk is always good, besides....I didn't feel like making a scene in front of these people...too tiring. A few blocks later, I stood in front of the high school that I started going to about a month ago. It was like any other of Japan's schools, which always includes wearing seifuku....uniforms....something that I personally don't like to wear, but watching female students wear them....I'm not complaining. So anyway....I step into the doorway of my classroom and my teacher greets me. Although she dresses strange, she still looks nice as a teacher. I then take my seat next to the window on the left side of the room. Some students were sitting down talking to each other while some were standing or sitting on their desks. I didn't really talk to anyone, maybe because I didn't feel like talking or just couldn't....I don't know...my heads really starting to bug the crap out of me. " Rai-Kun!!!!" This bundle of joy here is Hitomi, a bit energetic but somewhat cute in a way. She acts like a cat most of the time, always saying "Nya!" all cute-like, but to be honest.....its kinda wierd. She leaned against my back, hugging me and all. " Nya! Rai! Did you miss me over the weekend?" If I said no.....you would start crying, but I don't want tears this morning, I'm tired..." Why are you so tired? Dreaming of me all night? Hehehe! " I was having a dream Hitomi...not a nightmare. " Why are you so mean?!!" Of course this is the part where she starts to cry, but here I go, standing out of my chair, pulling my blonde hair out of my blue eyes, and approach her with the same look I give her to stop crying. Don't cry Hitomi....tears are not best suited for one so beautiful as you. Heart-shaped eyes appeared on her face and a sqeel of excitement busted my eardrums. *sigh*....satisfied. Sometimes I pray if she will ever be....oh well. I sat back down and put my head on my desk. God...I'm so tired. My head hurt more than usual.....its like something is clawing on the inside of my head. I lifted my head and stared out the window for a few seconds. " You look like hell Rai...." I turned my head to see who said that. Suijin Yamazaki.....one of the first few people I've made friends with. Suijin's appearance was different from the others in the class, or probably because he acts different. Always mellow and positive, Suijin acted much like a surfer, even admitted it himself. After school, he would always go to the beach to swim and flirt with girls, but never seemed to get their attentions....poor guy. Maybe it was because of his teeth....so sharp and pointy. " Have a bad weekend or something?" No...just couldn't.....*yawn*.....sleep. " Well that sucks. Hey can I ask you something?" Um...I guess. " You hear about the robery last night?" Robery? Oh wait....there was something on the news this morning that said there was a robery last night, but I didn't listen to any of it. " Well, you'll be surprised when you hear this." Suijin leaned down to whisper into my ear. " It was a large creature that stole from the museum!" A large creature? Suijin must be acting stupid if hes trying to scare me. " You think its real monster?" Of course not you idot! A few students looked at us because of my surprising outburst. I mean...uh....of course not Suijin...she doesn't like you! Hehehe. " Oh right....how silly! HAHA!" Everyone looked away and returned to what they previously were doing. *sigh*...sorry Suijin. " Na...its cool bro. I'm stupid for thinking about it. Just forget I brought it up alright." Damn...the crap I have to put up with during school. God...I wish it was the weekend already.
Now our class began. Everyone sitting, all paying attention to the teacher, well....most of us anyway. Suijin wasn't paying much attention, maybe because he was too busy picking at his teeth. Seriously....go to a freaking dentist.....geez....but anyway. Before the teacher could call attendance, she said there was something she had to say to us. But then I started to hear a strange bumping noise. It repeated itself over and over again. No one else seemed to hear it, but it grew louder and everyone started to look around to see where the repeated bumping was coming from. The strange rhythm grew louder...it sounded like it was coming from outside the classroom. " What the hell is that noise?!" Suijin especially didn't like the sound.....sensative ears I bet. I wasn't too fond of this myself.....but when I listen to it closely....it sounds like...music! I could hear it behind the door to our class. Whatever was behind that door....I can tell you this.....I'm most likely not gonna like whats behind that door. The door slid open fast and the music stopped. " DAMMITT ALL TO HELLL!!!!" Somebody entered the room yelling. It was a surprise seeing this crazy dude enter the room like that, but I could already tell...." MAN! Took me forever to find this class!".....that this day won't turn out normal at all. " Um...can I help you young man?" This dude suddenly put his glare on the teacher. " YOUR DAMN RIGHT YOU CAN HELP ME!!!" She completely got scared...kinda funny. " Yea so...is this the right class?" Suddenly he stopped shouting...I hope. "Um yea. Wait a sec. Your that new student that I was informed about!" New student? When did this happen? Suddenly this freakishly tall dude, wearing a blue toboggan hat and piercings that nearly cover his face, shows up and changes the scene in just a few seconds. " Yea...I'm the new guy....GOT A PROBLEM WITH THAT?!!" He seems to overeact to the smallest things. " Umm....No." But he goes back to being calm. " Well then we don't have a problem." This guy....seems strange....but something about him....makes my head hurt more than usual. " Well..anyway...please introduce yourself so we can proceed....ok" And he responded with a smirk. " Tch. Whatever...." Well he doesn't have manners for people, thats for sure. " Listen Up Idiotas!!! I'm gonna say my name once and ONLY once...got that?" It seems like something interesting will finally happen to my boring life style. I guess your to blame....." Hyoujin Alessandro Akayuki! Ready to kick this place up! YEA! Hehehehe....
