Chapter 3: Mistake Split-upMature

(Originally posted by me on Sat Jan 02, 2010)

Fujitsu was very reluctant to leave Aria as she was; her hands were in bad condition as it was, and now her face was injured, but Click was right. She was old enough to take care of herself. He wouldn't be surprised if she were only a year or two younger than him. So, without further ado, he ran outside with Click, who was waiting impatiently by the doors.
It must have been at least one o'clock by now. The sun was burning brightly in the sky, though not directly overhead. The summer air was as hot as it usually got, so it must have been around one or two. There were few clouds in the sky, and some birds chirping with no sounds of the battle in the castle mixing in. You wouldn't have been able to predict the conspiracy theory with this setting.
As the two of them ran through the gates right outside the doors, they came face-to-face with the supposed leader of the Stygian group. All three of them stopped dead in their tracks, Click and Fujitsu staring at the swordsman, the swordsman glaring at the two of them. They stayed like that for a while, before Fujitsu broke the ice.
"Go get Wessel," he said. "I'll take care of this one."
Click studied Fujitsu. He was holding up just fine, despite the injury to his chest. As a matter of fact, his body seemed to be used to this kind of damage. Just what training did he go through with that Arisan-guy? He didn't know, but that wasn't of importance right now. Right now, he needed to trust Fujitsu to take care of this Stygian, and he needed to get Wessel before he got away.
He nodded. "Alright. See you when you take care of this one." He ran off and around the swordsman, who understood who his opponent was now. He grabbed his blade and tugged it out of its sheath. Fujitsu already had his weapon in hand, so he just dropped into his most effective stance.
Then, the two of them lunged at each other striking metal with metal. Repeatedly, they parried and blocked and stroke with much grace. After a particularly hard blow, both of them pushed one another off of each other.
God damn... Fujitsu thought. I'm going to have to up the ante with this one....

The End
