I finally caught up.
I like this story, it's unusual.
The 'intimacy' thing reminds of Kaon and Himiko in the anime Kyoushiro to Towa no Sora. But maybe that's just me ^^
I guess Rena's suicide has something to do with her father's violence...
Next chapter please!  :)

Indestructible Fire

ACT IV



Airi’s POV - Flashback -

Another boring~ day at school. Seriously. Boredom kills.

I wonder if there’ll be anything to spice up my life…

“Hey look, that crazy girl is on that tree again!”

“Hmm?” Lifting my head that was on the desk that was supported by both my arms to turn to where the voice came from, noting that the student who was pointing at the window was slowly being surrounded by a group of students who were gasping as if they saw something disturbing and also, blocking my sight.

Then again, this was a natural occurrence. A girl known as the ‘crazy tree girl’ often climbs up the tree that can be seen from the window of my classroom. Usually the student council members would settle the issue by asking her to come down and when she doesn’t budge, the teachers are called to the scene.
I wonder what she does up there though…

… That’s it! I guess I found something exciting to do.

Getting out of my seat, I paced myself quickly to the entrance of our classroom and headed towards the tree. It was in the school courtyard, which is the center of this whole school, so most students should be able to see her but it’s either they just don’t bother with her or because it has just turned way~ too normal for that crazy girl to climb up the tree in the courtyard. I’m assuming my classmates are just busybodies unlike the rest, waiting to get gossip out of the crazy girl.

Heh. Just perfect. I wanted some of the spotlight too.

Nahh. I’m not that obnoxious.

Or maybe I am? Pfft.

Approaching the tree, I looked back towards the classroom I was in which was on the second floor. I noticed the students looking at me with a shocked expression which I shrugged off in return before walking towards the tree. The leaves of the tree were a mixture of green and orange, it was a nice sight and had the feeling of Autumn. Putting both my hands into the pockets of my blazer and standing right under the tree that shaded me from the rays of the sun, I gazed upwards, seeing the girl who had her back turned towards me, seemingly mumbling to herself.

“Oi. You there,” I tried calling out to her.

She stopped and I could see her body tense up as if she was surprised by my voice, “What are you doing?” I asked further.
A bird suddenly flew away from the tree before I heard an answer from the girl, “… None of your business,” She then swung her legs up and down as if she was having fun, sitting on a thick branch of the tree like that.

Dang this girl had an attitude.

“You have a death wish or something? Don’t you know it’s dangerous to be up on the tree like that? Or are you someone who has no common sense?” I threw sarcasms at her, curious about how the girl would react.

That moment, I saw her hands slowly balling up into fists, twitching in annoyance. Whoops~ looks like I really did push the wrong button. She looked back at me with her tongue put out in irritation with her eyes tightly closed before opening them again and our eyes officially met each other’s.

I put out my tongue at her too but smirked shortly after, “Ah. Looks like you’re not an abnormal, mental girl who loves climbing up trees for no reason huh.”
She shifted her body towards me, dropping her legs towards my direction to face me properly while her arms are still supporting herself on the branch to keep herself from falling, “Of course I’m not, you jerk. Who the heck do you think you are huh?”

Man, I think I’m getting addicted to this attitude of hers.

“I’m Furukawa Airi. A bored-as-hell jerk who decided to escort you down the tree, young lady,” I made a short, prince-like bow to the girl who suddenly threw a small branch at my head which made me wince in pain briefly.

“Don’t try to act all princely, Furukawa Airi-san. I don’t know you nor do you know me,” she gave a really cute pout.

“Yeah yeah, I’m well-aware of that. But, seeing how amazing it is that you’re the center of attention of my class,” I lazily pointed backwards at my classroom with my thumb, “… I would like to get to know you a little more. Don’t you want a real friend and not an imaginary one?”

She pouted even more before letting out a sigh and jumped off the branch, landing perfectly in front of me as I stepped back.

“… I do have friends okay?” She stood up straight, crossing her arms with an annoyed look on her face.

“Oh really~” I smirked, “You were literally talking to yourself before I called out to you.”

I could see a blush forming slightly on her face, “S-Shut up. I was talking to my friend before you scared her off, idiot.”

Her friend? I scared her off?

You know what? This girl is mental.

“So I scared off your imaginary friend. Brilliant,” I swung both hands behind my head with a lax expression on my face.

“N-No! She’s not imaginary!” She clenched her fists again, raising her voice, “S-She’s…” Now she looked away, “… A-A… bird…”

You have GOT to be kidding me.

“HUH?!” I grabbed her shoulders out of impulse due to the shock.

Since when can humans talk to birds?! She ain’t no Cinderella!

She pushed my arms away in annoyance and continued avoiding my gaze, “… Yeah you heard me. I was talking to a bird. Happy now? You should go report to your “friends” in class about how weird I am.”

Instead of actually thinking of her weird… I think she’s really…

… Unique…?

“N-No no,” I straightened myself with a smile, “I think that’s something really cool.”

“Pardon me?”

“I mean… talking to birds,” I scratched my cheek lightly, “It’s uh… not something anyone does every day… especially climbing up trees for that sake…”

At that moment, she looked at me, eyes glimmering at my direction as if she saw a toy that she really wanted to buy. She then clasped both my hands together within hers and closed our gap between us, her face just inches away from mine with a look of excitement.

I couldn’t help but blush at that sight. No one has ever pulled me so close to them. EVER.

“You believe me?”

“W-Wha--? Y-Yeah. Why not? People talking to birds are cool.”

“Really?”

“W-Well yeah…”

She suddenly pushed me away, acting annoyed again. I nearly lost my balance but luckily I was able to regain it before actually tripping on my back, “The heck was that for?!”

“You’re obviously taking me as a fool, huh? Furukawa Airi-san.”

“What? No! I seriously believe you!”

“You still have doubts. I can hear it in your voice,” she shook her head, as if she was disappointed in me.

What is she, some kind of psychic? More like… psychopath.

“Alright fine. Since I don’t believe you, how are you going to show it to me?”

She shot a smile at me, “Meet me here after school. I’ll prove to you that I was, and can, talk to birds.”

That is one dazzling smile she’s got. I wonder if I’m the only one in this whole school who has seen this crazy girl’s childish, but warm, smile.

I gave her a nod, “Sure. By the way,” She had a quizzed look on her face, “… What’s your name, ‘crazy tree girl’?”

“… Akane,” She reached a hand out to me, “Takayanagi Akane.”

I did the same and shook her hand, “Nice to meet you, Takayanagi-san.”

She flashed the same smile again, “Likewise, Furukawa-san,” She suddenly tightened her grip on my hand which made me yelp in pain involuntarily, “And don’t call me ‘crazy tree girl’ ever again, you jerk!”

Basically, that was how I met her, and the beginning of my crazy life with a bird-brain.

My Master—Takayanagi Akane.

The clock of fate had begun to turn without realization, the moment I decided to approach Churi.

Perhaps everything would have been different if my curiosity didn’t get to me? If I didn’t approach Churi and allowed the same procedure to happen over and over again. The student council or teachers asking her to stop her madness… Guess it’s as they say, ‘curiosity kills the cat’…

… In this case, it would have to be the ‘bird’, huh.


After school that day, I complied to my ‘promise’ with Takayanagi-san and met her at the tree. She was already sitting comfortably in that particular branch with a grin on her face before putting her index finger to her lips, as if she wanted me to stay quiet.

I stared at her quietly as the serene-look on her face captivated me. She had her eyes closed and her hand was stretched out in front of her and within a minute or two, a bird perched onto her hand with a tweet and she smiled. Opening her eyes, she softly touched the head of the small bird and begun talking to it in the form of ‘chirping’.

Swinging my bag behind my back, I shrugged and continued looking on. As much as this looks and feels stupid but I just can’t help but feel captivated by her presence. Looking around my surroundings, I could see students walking pass the walkways outside of the classroom buildings which passed through the courtyard giving me and Takayanagi-san weird glances and even whispering amongst themselves.

Suddenly, I felt something land on my shoulder. Tilting my head slowly, I could see the bird that Takayanagi-san was ‘talking’ to on my shoulder, perching on it comfortably while hopping once in a while.

“I gave the bird a command~” She spoke in an audibly soft voice, which I supposed was to not scare off the bird, “I asked her to make a home on your shoulder~”

“YOU WHAT?!”

And~ I scared the bird off. Again.

“You’re seriously an idiot, Furukawa-san,” she shook her head in disappointment once again.

“YOU’RE the idiot here, Takayanagi-san! Of all things to say to a bird, why make my shoulder a home?!” I raised my voice at her.

“If not, she wouldn’t fly to your shoulder to see if it’s suitable or not,” she ogled me with an unimpressed look on her face.

“Seriously, this girl has problems…” I facepalmed while saying that in a low voice.

“But hey, you really do believe me now right?”

I looked up at her and she gestured a peace sign to me with an innocent grin.

“That I can actually talk to birds.”

As much as I hate to admit it but… I suppose her weird way of demonstrating did suffice.

“Fine fine, I believe you. Sheesh.”

“Great!” She started swinging her legs up and down in glee, “You know, you’re the first person to believe me~”

“No kidding. Who the heck would take a girl who talks to birds seriously unless they’re out of their minds…”

“So you’re admitting you’re out of your mind, Furukawa-san?”

“Just shut up, Takayanagi.” I could see her smirking with her hands on her lips, trying to annoy the heck out of me.

As much as this girl’s driving me mad but…

… At the same time… it actually feels relaxing with her.

“Churi.”

“Huh?”

“Call me Churi from now on, Furukawa-san!” She giggled in embarrassment, “It’s my nickname.”

At least she’s normal with the fact she does have a nickname, as weird as it sounds, “Then call me Airin. It’s my nickname.”

She gave me a nod, “But why Airin though? It sounds so plain~”

“Then why the heck is yours Churi?” I retaliated, crossing my arms.

“Because it’s like the chirping of birds~ Churi churi churi~” She tried imitating the chirping of birds with a smile, “So? Why is yours Airin?”
I looked away, “… Just because.”

“Oh? So you don’t have a proper reason huh~ and here I was~ thinking that you’d have a godlike reason to have a nickname so plain as that~”

THIS. GIRL. IS. GETTING. ON. MY. NERVES.

“Ugh, I’m leaving.”

As I turned my back towards her, I could hear her landing behind me and she quickly grabbed onto my free hand. Feeling the warmth of her hand clasping onto mine, it transpired in my mind that she didn’t want me to leave.

“I-I’m sorry… I didn’t mean to say what I’ve said… it’s just that… you’re really easy to talk to, Airin… so I just let my words out of my mind without processing them properly…”

I sighed, “So you think we’re close with just our first meeting?”

She tightened her grip, but it wasn’t uncomfortable and I could feel her tremble slightly, “… Well… you’re probably the first person who has talked to me who aren’t my classmates… and I feel like I could relate to you.”

“How so?”

“… You’re bored of your mundane life… right?”

I could feel my heart jolt in surprise. I turned around slowly to face her, only to see her head facing downwards and her bangs covering her eyes.

“… A boring life… you may have friends but they just can’t relate to you right…? You may have been called weird too… So you prefer to be alone, hoping for a chance to encounter something exciting… right?”

She’s striking at all the right points. As much as I don’t want to admit it, I do have friends. Double-faced ones… I have been called weird, because of my avid love for anime… so I tend to be alone… I do long for something exciting to happen in my life…

… And that something…

… Was the meeting between Takayanagi Akane and I.

“Did I…” She lifted her head and looked at me with a wry smile, “… get it right?”

“Are you psychic or something?” I asked, in a low voice.

She shook her head, “Nope,” she then used her free hand to point at the tree behind her, “… the birds told me. They told me they felt someone similar to me. I just…never expected that person to be someone as crude as you, Airin.”

“Get off my case, Churi,” I rolled my eyes, “You’re just as much as a creep. You sound like a stalker who has been checking up on me if I didn’t believe the whole ‘you can talk to birds’ crap.”

“… And that’s what piqued my interest about you, Airin,” she winked, “your crudeness.”

I have no idea why but I could feel my face feeling hot and my heart pounding fast. Darn it. This girl is confusing me!

“Aww~ Airin’s blushing~ that’s cute~”

“A-As if you can see with the sun setting!”

“I can’t see it properly but I can feel it,” she gave my hand a light squeeze on the hand she was holding with a smile, “Your hand is getting hotter and hotter~”

I quickly flung her hand off mine which made her chuckle as if she were teasing me and I pouted, “S-Shut it. Don’t forget, today’s just the first day we met, you bird-brain!”

“And there are more and more days to come from today onwards to actually get to know each other yes, Airin?”

Everything feels like it’s just going according to her pace which ticked me off but… oh well. I didn’t mind. She was interesting after all.

I gave a light-hearted chuckle, “Yeah yeah. Guess I have to put up with a bird-brain like you from now on. Worst mistake of my life.”

“I’ll turn ‘worst mistake’ into ‘best miracle’ someday soon, Airin. Just you wait!” She grinned playfully in which I pinched both her cheeks in return.

“Try me!”

Day after day went by peacefully and our friendship slowly strengthened as each day passed by. She’d invite me up on the tree sometimes to enjoy lunch breaks together and play with the birds. Despite more and more students actually noticing our weird antics, we just didn’t give a care in the world.  I would protect her and myself when I do notice the student council members and teachers coming towards us, telling them I was trying to make her stop in which it worked most of the time if the student or teacher is gullible enough. During weekends, I’d tag her along with me to arcades and anime shops to show her a glimpse of how my lifestyle was in which she seemingly accepted and enjoyed.

Yeah. We loved each other’s company.

No doubt, we turned into best friends within a matter of days…

… Until a horrible accident happened.

It was sometime in the evening. Churi had messaged me, telling me she had to return to school after a bird was pecking nonstop in front of her window and told her that a cat was trying to destroy a nest on the tree of the courtyard, while killing off the birds in the process. No one would believe that kind of story right? But I just couldn’t help but believed her and went off into the night after reading her message, still fully cladded in uniform, tossing my phone onto my bed.

When I got to school, I could see her from far that she was struggling to get the cat off the tree when the cat was putting on a fight, hearing all the fierce, screeching growls from the cat. I ran towards her, calling her name, but before I could get to her, I saw her fell off the tree before my eyes, head pummeling straight onto the ground below her.

My speed accelerated in deep fear of what would happen. When I got to her, I literally slid on the ground and checked on her, she was groaning in pain, her head was bleeding non-stop, and her eyes were shut tightly. I panicked. I knew one day she might get into such trouble but definitely not like this!

“A… Ai… rin……” She called out my name in a weak tone of voice.

“I-I’m here, Churi!” I quickly reached for my phone that should be in my skirt’s pocket but a horrible realization came to me when I remembered I left it back home. My eyes widened in shock.

“… T-Thanks… for… coming… I’m stupid… huh…” She let out a weak chuckle.

“O-Oi! Don’t go dying on me!” I looked around my surroundings, hoping for someone to be there, “A-Anyone! Please help!!! A student has a severe injury!!!!!!” I yelled and yelled until I felt a cold hand on my cheek.

Churi caressed it softly, trying to calm me down.

“… I’ll… be fine… you’re… noisy……”

I lifted her up with all my might, prepared to run as she rested her hands on her stomach, “S-Stay with me okay?! We’re going to the hospital!”

“Airin… though our time was short… thank you… for everything……”

I ran.

“… I’m glad… we met…”

And ran.

“… I just wished… it didn’t end… like this…”

And ran…

“… I’m… tired… so I’ll…… sleep now…”

… I stopped.

“Churi…?” I looked at her face, tears glimmering on her cheeks with her eyes closed and a peaceful smile on her lips.

I felt my legs giving in to her dead weight as I broke down then and there at the school entrance, with Churi in my arms as I hugged her tightly, trembling, wailing her name over and over again, hoping for a response.

Suddenly, a blinding, bright light seared into my blurred vision thanks to my tears from above. A hand reached out to me, followed by a low, but calming voice.

“… Do you want to save her life?”

“… Obviously I do…” I held her even tighter to me.

“... Are you willing to give your own life in return for hers…?”

The voice darkened in tone. As much as I was suspicious, but that was definitely not the time to think about any other trivial matters.

This girl deserves to live, no matter how weird she may be.

I’m a scumbag who can die for this bird-brain… she’s my very first best friend after all! She is the 'best miracle' that happened in my life!!!

“… Yeah. I’m willing…” I looked straight at the hand, controlling my overflowing tears, “… If this idiot returns to life because of my sacrifice, fine.”

“… Take hold of my hand.”

I reached out to the suspicious person’s hand and when I did, the whole world went blank.

That was the beginning of my new life as the Guardian of Earth.

You may think it was a stupid decision to sacrifice my life for someone who just entered my life out of coincidence huh?

… Guess I wanted to feel the thrill of it, seeing how these kind of scenarios happen in anime. Not only that…

… I sincerely thought Churi deserved to live. Not that I disregard my life. I do have regrets on my decision but…

Heh… guess I’m an idiot after all.


- - - - - -

“… Airin…”

No response.

“A… Airin… please…”

Still, no response.

“… This is… a lie right…? Airin… you can’t…”

“Oops! Sorry but, you are not supposed to be here, Takayanagi Akane.”

Akane who was tearing up on top of Airi’s soaking wet chest, tilted her head to see who had called out to her. The mixture of the rain and her tears that slowly rolled down to her cheeks and a few drops that landed to both sides of her lips made her taste the saltiness of her tears, and the bitterness of how she felt now.

The face she saw looked cold and cruel, as if she was about to murder her, with the help of the dark clouds that blanketed the blue sky behind the figure as the rain poured like cats and dogs. The wind was thrashing in the tree tops and the boughs moaned. It was the perfect setting for such a mentally depressing scene.

The figure then pointed a revolver at Akane, who in return, slowly lifted her head up from Airi’s chest in deep shock, placing both her hands on the muddy ground beneath her and slowly crawling away backwards with the figure following her slowly, the tip of the revolver aiming at Akane’s head.

“… W-Who… are… you…?” She asked in a small, trembling voice. As she heard the barrel of the revolver clicking, she knew she was done for. Her legs have given in, her whole body has decided on its own accord to stop moving in accordance to her fear right now and all she could do was look on straight at the tip of the gun being pointed straight to the middle of both her eyes.

“Telling you who I am will be a waste of time. So, it’s good night for now, Takayanagi Akane. I’m sorry for your loss.”

*BANG!*

Looking at the [2/1/2014] in this thread's title, you seem to be stuck in 2014 like me. I never get used to the new year until it's already half over.  XD
Thank you for the heartbreaking update, I can't wait to read the next chapter!

I just read this fic and this is really interesting
can't wait for the next chapter~ :)



Ahahaha thanks for picking this up even though you had to see your favourite pair so far get killed...    :(

Please stay tuned for more :)

You didn't just..... :cry:

WHY?!

So...: Rena hung herself and Churi fell out of a tree...?



As much as I would love to link the whole tree thing together, that's still in progress, so I'm unsure myself whether that is actually a significant thing in the course of the story ><

Sorry about Furuyanagi  :cry:

Indestructible Fire

ACT V

“Jurina~……”

“R-Rena-chan…?!”

She felt soft, tender hands, circling lightly around her tummy, causing her to tense up in pleasure despite all the struggling she’s doing now. She did not want to admit, of all things, that she was enjoying this… ‘moment’… that her best friend is giving her.

Slowly, Rena’s hands skillfully unbuttoned her shirt with a playful smirk appearing on her face and when she was done, Jurina’s front had been completely exposed to the latter, and that was when Jurina quickly covered her breasts, embarrassed about showing her body to her best friend, continued struggling further, trying to knock Rena off her as she sat comfortably on her thighs.

Rena then hovered over Jurina’s face with a seductive smile, before whispering softly into her ear.

“… You enjoy this, don’t you…?”

“N-No...!”

“I’ll be gentle Jurina… don’t worry… it’s all to get as much power as possible… right? So we have to be… intimate…”Rena then blew a warm ball of air into Jurina’s ear that made her uncontrollably let out a moan.

“R-Re… na-cha… n…”


- - - - - -

“… Re~ na~ cha~ n~~~……”

“Seriously?! She’s enjoying this?!”

Rena was, in reality, pressed Jurina down with a bolster she had lent to Jurina for the night due to her constant begging hardly in hopes of waking Jurina up but she did not expect the other Matsui to have a look of enjoyment on her that made her seem like she was not close to waking up at this rate.

“… Guardians… need intimacy to get energy for the day… huh…” Rena pondered to herself before a blush formed on her cheek, “… Maybe… that would wake her up…”

Rena had then taken the bolster that was on top of the grinning Jurina and took a deep breath before hugging the latter with both arms tightly and her eyes shut in embarrassment. Hugging a person out of the blue like this just felt awkward to her. As she laid her head onto Jurina’s chest, hearing her heartbeat had a soothing effect that made Rena’s tension cool off within a split second.

That was when the sleeping Matsui crept her hands around Rena’s back, hugging her in return. Rena’s tension returned completely and begun to try getting herself out of Jurina’s warm hug despite actually liking the feeling.

“… Mmm…?”

“O-Oh no…!”

Rena could feel Jurina’s body shifting after she let out a soft groan. Jurina looked down towards her chest where Rena’s head was while the other, without intention, returned gazes with her when she tilted her head, making her chin lay onto Jurina’s chest instead.

The next moment, screaming ensued out of pure embarrassment and that marked the beginning of a brand new day for the supposed ‘best friends’ pair.

- - - - - -

As Rena slowly drawn the curtains in her room, she could see ominous black clouds that had covered the sky, ready to release a round of heavy showers anytime soon. Jurina had then came out of the bathroom, all ready for the new day.

“Gosh, bad weather today huh,” Jurina commented with a shrug.

“Seems that way,” Rena went over to get her bag and gestured Jurina to follow her, “Time to leave.”

“There’s one full hour before classes start though. Really?”

Rena nodded, “Well, you can go train or something at the dojo while I accompany you. We might be able to catch Churi and Airin training too.”

“Oh right! That’s true!!!” Jurina was pumped up with energy and grinned before taking Rena’s hand and leading her out of the door energetically, “Let’s go let’s go!”

“S-Slow down sheesh… I need breakfast you know?” Rena let out a sigh but was relieved to see her embarrassment was actually able to energize Jurina.

“Oh right, sorry… ehehe…” Jurina knocked onto her own head cutely with her tongue stuck out before they headed to the kitchen to get breakfast before leaving.

- - - - - -

Upon stepping through the school gates, they suddenly felt like there was a huge encumbrance on their shoulders; they had also felt like they were about to suffocate. It was a very unpleasant feeling as it started to drizzle.

Once they got to shelter, they looked at each other, confused as to why there was a momentarily feeling of unpleasantness. They were thankful once they got into the school building, the uncomfortable feeling had slowly left them but they still could not help but wonder.

“Maybe Churi-san and Airi-san knows what’s going on?”

“Probably…” Rena had just finished swapping shoes at her shoe locker before turning to Jurina, “Guess I could give them a call.”

“Yo, you two.”

A voice from behind them resounded throughout the empty shoe locker area. When they had turned to the source of the voice, they were met with an unfamiliar sight. She was a senior they had never met, however, she was quite a short one, at least more than half a head shorter than both Matsui and had notable red highlighting on the edge of her short hair which made her look cool. She had reached her hand out that was seemingly holding a white envelope with her strict look plastered on her face.

“This is for you. From the higher ups.”

“Y-You’re one of us…?!” Jurina had a look of surprise.

Rena then nudged the latter to take the envelope for her and she had not much of a choice but to do so, despite fear building up within her. This senior of hers still had a strict look on her face as she took the envelope off her hands but the tense air around her slowly dispersed once she crossed her arms and gave a smile—an awkward-looking one as a matter of fact.

“Haven’t seen you both here before,” the senior scanned both Matsui before shifting her gaze directly at Jurina, “I’m Takahashi Minami. A third year as obvious as that is and am one of the Masters of this dreadful game.”

“I’m Matsui Jurina, a Guardian,” Jurina then pointed at Rena casually, “And she’s my Master—Matsui Rena.”

“Nice to meet you, Takahashi-senpai,” Rena bowed briefly.

“Takamina is enough. Though… calling me Takahashi-senpai does sound really… cool,” Minami smiled sheepishly to herself before knocking out of it in an instance, “Anyways, that envelope. It’ll open once every pair gets one. Or at least… once every pair that is active gets one… notice that black seal at the back of the envelope?” Jurina flipped the envelope to its back, “It’ll turn red once all active members get the letter.”

“What do you mean by active…?” Jurina had caught the dark tone of voice that Minami had used when she rephrased her sentence.

“I don’t think I have to be a Guardian to realise it but… don’t you feel there’s something odd with the air today? The atmosphere… something feels like it’s suffocating you?” Minami’s statement had made both Matsui’s eyes widened. They totally understood what Minami meant.

“I’m guessing it’s a sign that something ominous has either happened or will happen… to one of the pairs… so…” Minami gave Jurina a serious look to her eyes, “… Stay on your toes. I know it’s weird coming from me, a rival team, but I don’t want to see any bloodshed just yet.”

Jurina obediently nodded before Minami greeted them once again and told Jurina and Rena to notify any other Guardian-Master pair they meet along the way to meet her and get their letters before she went off.

“A bad omen… huh,” Jurina was dumbfounded.

“Jurina,” she looked back to face Rena who had her phone to her ear, “I’ve been trying to contact Churi but… seems like it just goes to the operator whenever I do.”

“W-What…?!” Jurina could feel a shiver down her spine, “… It couldn’t be… right?”

“We should try heading to the dojo. We might be able to see them there.”

“Yeah, good idea.”

They took the route that passes through the archery training grounds towards the dojo since the rain has slowly started to pour down and there, they bumped into a familiar pair, or at least, a familiar pair to Jurina.

“It’s raining~ I can’t see properly! I don’t wanna practice anymore, Sayaka~~~”

“No excuses! It’s your fault for loitering around when I wanted you to practice these few days!”

“Tch~ Stupid Chin Woman. Slave driver~”

“Stop mocking my chin already!”

Sayaka shrugged in frustration as Miyuki rolled her eyes with a pout and begun to shoot lazily at her target that was quite a distance away from her. The short-haired senior turned to the two Matsui when she felt their presence close to her and Miyuki and greeted them nonchalantly. They greeted her back as well, noting that Miyuki was mumbling grumpily to herself and did not bother to even take a look at Jurina and Rena.

“Ah… don’t mind her bad manners ‘kay guys?” Sayaka smiled apologetically and rubbed her neck.

“It’s alright,” Jurina smiled wryly in return as well, “… Umm… this,” she showed Sayaka the envelope that was just given to her by Minami, “Have you gotten this yet?”

Sayaka looked away, clenching her fists. Miyuki noticed the change in her partner’s vibe and stopped her grumbling and meaningless archery training, shifting her gaze towards Sayaka’s back. When Sayaka looked like this, she knew, that it was because she was either angry or on-the-verge-of-breaking-down sad.

“Sayaka…?” Miyuki called out to her partner softly.

“… Who… gave you that?”

“W-Who… umm… Takamina-san. Seems like she’s in-charge of giving these letters out. Everyone had to get them to see the contents,” Jurina explained shakily, noticing Sayaka’s dangerous vibe.

“… I see…” Sayaka gave Jurina a cold look, “… Jurina-san… was it…? If I were you… I’d be really getting cautious about my surroundings and the people I talk to from now on. That letter… signifies everything is going to change today.”

“What do you mean?” Rena voiced out this time.

“You’ll find out soon enough, Master of Jurina-chan here.”

“Matsui Rena.”

“Mmhmm~ okay~” Miyuki winked, “Anyways, I think it’s about we had checked in with Takamina-san don’t you think so, Sayaka?”

Sayaka did not budge, more like, she continued staring coldly at Jurina who was definitely feeling pressure from such a intense, nerve-wrecking gaze from a senior. Miyuki constantly tugged at Sayaka’s arm while calling out her name until finally the latter snapped out of it, but had a dark look on her face.

“… Sorry… I don’t know what got over me…” Sayaka said, looking down at the floor beneath her.

“I-It’s okay…” Jurina scratched her cheek nervously, “… Uh well…  We’ll be leaving too then,” Jurina quickly leapt a step behind her and dragged Rena off in a panic after greeting her seniors once again.

“… Sayaka…”

“… I-I know Miyuki… I just… couldn’t control it,” Sayaka continued to shiver with her hands curled up into balls of fists which were then enveloped in Miyuki’s own warm hands as she leaned against Sayaka’s back to calm her down.

“… Everything will be alright. This time, for sure…”

Sayaka nodded without a word as the rain started to pour like bullets now.

- - - - - -

At the dojo, Akane and Airi were nowhere to be seen. It was just a quiet, gloomy-looking dojo they had entered, with the sound of the rapidly-falling raindrops in the background and the scent of the rain seeping through the wooden windows.

“They aren’t here…”

“Yeah.”

Rena glanced at her watch and realized she had to head to class, “Hey Jurina, why don’t you hang around here to train or something? Or even find clues? I think it’s more productive than to wait for me to finish class.”

“Sure. But… after all the warnings about us being careful from now on, you sure?” Jurina had a worried look on her face.

“I… think it should be fine…” Rena started fidgeting nervously, realizing the danger were she to be apart from Jurina.

“Forget it, I’m following you. I have no intention of seeing you suddenly getting injured because I was too lax about your safety,” Jurina had already walked ahead of Rena towards the door.

“Jurina…!”

“No buts, it’s either I follow you to class or you’re going to skip class to investigate where the heck Akane and Airi are,” Jurina acted as sternly as possible. Rena could feel how genuine the other Matsui was about her safety and was thankful for that.

Rena sighed with her back turned against Jurina, walking towards the other entrance from the small pathway they would use were it not for the bad weather, “Fine fine you win. But seriously…… eh…?”

Seeing how Rena had stopped out of the blue in front of the other entrance, Jurina had went over to check up on her partner, “Rena-chan?”

“Squint your eyes a little if you can’t see it properly but look over there,” she pointed towards a patch of grass being drenched by mud and rainwater next to a tree, “Can you see something shiny over there…?”

Jurina squinted her eyes and focused at the area where Rena was pointing at and after quite a few moments, she finally noticed a sparkling object in the heavy rain, “… I’m amazed with your eyesight in this crazy rain, Rena-chan,” she then gave Rena the envelope for safekeeping before taking off her blazer and placed it over her head, “I’m going to go check it out, wait for me for a bit,” and she dashed into the rain.

“B-Bakka! I have an umbrella in my bag, you know?!” Rena’s exclamation was completely muted by the loud sounds of the pouring rain.

- - - - - -

Jurina’s POV

Darn it! Stupid rain!!! It’s making my shoes all muddy and disgusting!

Not the time to care about hygiene, Jurina…! Get the sparkly thing and get back to Rena-chan!

Let’s see… it’s this patch of grass here… whoa…

Right in front of me, nearly submerged into the mud beneath it lies a big, sphere-like object, shining with a considerably bright yellow glow once I actually get up close to it. Not really big but… probably twice the size of a tangerine…? I held the sphere into my hand and suddenly felt a strong jolt at the back of my head. It was painful but it subsided rather quickly…

Fortunately, the sphere was not as heavy as it looked like initially as I brought it into the dojo, where Rena-chan was waiting for me… with crossed arms… with a frown… tapping the floor with her shoe as if she’s mad.

“Jurina, you idiot! Don’t ever run off into the rain like that! You’re going to get sick!”

… I honestly wonder if ghosts like me get sick Rena-chan… but her scolding me was so cute that I forgot to feel guilty for making her worry about my ‘health’, if I still had to care about it.

“Sorry sorry… I don’t think I get sick anyways…” I shrugged before she handed me a towel and a fresh set of P.E. jerseys, ordering to change immediately, in which I did so in the washroom that the dojo conveniently had.

After changing into Rena-chan’s sweet-smelling P.E. jerseys that made me feel rather tingly, she took the sphere-like object with me and wrapped it with my wet clothing and placed it carefully into her bag before literally dragging me off to class as speedily as she could, realizing she would be late if she couldn’t get to class within three minutes.

Rena-chan’s such a good girl… seriously… I don’t think the teachers would be that on-time anyways. Geez~

I wonder what that sphere-like object is… and the letter…

- - - - - -

Jurina’s POV

Class had begun with the teacher being five minutes late after all. Rena-chan was huffing and puffing when she got to her seat. As usual, she’s not really the athlete, but she definitely has got the brains. As classes went on, I opened Rena’s bag with her approval to check on the sphere-like object and the envelope. I feel sorry for getting her bag wet, the fact she’s using my wet clothes to protect the unknown object... as for the envelope, she had it kept in between two books, so it was protected from my drenched clothes.

I decided to prioritise the envelope first. Hopefully by now everyone has it…

Lo and behold, turning it over, the seal had turned red. Cool. Let’s see……

“The first death has occurred. Whoever has the deceased’s Orb of Existence will be known as the trigger for the beginning of this wonderful game. We are looking forward to a brilliant showdown between you all. Do try your best to entertain us, for the sake of living normally once again.”

- - - - - -

“Finally… someone went completely nuts… Time to play this game seriously huh…?!!”

“Y-Yuu-chan…?”

Yuko gritted her teeth in blind anger, “… Whoever it is… I’m going to rip her up into pieces before they lay a finger onto you, Kojipa…”

Kojima Haruna—Yuko’s Master, looked completely confused at Yuko who was giving her a serious look of fury.

“Kojipa, I’m leaving for a bit. Enjoy your P.E. class.”

“Y-Yuu-chan!” Yuko had stormed out of the hall furiously, “… Mou…”

“Time to prey on the ‘strongest’ first…” Yuko said to herself as she blasted through the hallways like a gust of wind.

- - - - - -

“… Minami.”

“Yeah Atsuko…?” Minami whispered back softly with her head still facing the whiteboard in which the teacher was writing notes on.

“It seems like your conjecture was right… someone really did die,” Minami’s partner, Maeda Atsuko, adjusted her glasses coolly as she arched down beside Minami to whisper directly into her ear.

“… Huh. Finally we can get serious and not play around like Yuko huh,” Minami leaned back, crossing her arms, “… Does it say who’s done it?”

“… The person who has the deceased’s Orb of Existence.”

Minami smirked, “Ho? Such a big clue… we’ll start our investigation to see who has it, and begin our plan to win the prize.”

“At your command, Minami.”

I don’t want to see any bloodshed yet huh… heh… since when have I turned into a hypocrite…?”

- - - - - -

“Bad news, Sayaka! Bad news!”

“Huh…? What…?” Sayaka was actually resting soundly in the library, skipping class due to her bad mood.

“It’s as we expected!” Miyuki exclaimed in a panicky tone.

Sayaka shot up immediately, snatching the letter off Miyuki’s hand in rage, “Darn it, this again… it’s exactly the same huh…”

“W-What should we do now…?”

“… Put an end to this annoying ordeal once and for all. We’re given this chance for a reason, Miyuki. I’m sure of it,” Sayaka looked into Miyuki’s eyes calmly and nodded. The latter was soothed by her partner’s calmness and nodded in return as well.

“Let’s go find out who it is first.”

“Leave the fighting to me, Chin Woman~!”

“Ugh… I’m saving my energy to protect myself from actual danger. Let’s go, Miyuki.”

- - - - - -

Jurina’s POV

No… wait…

… Don’t tell me that sphere thing…

Whose is it…? Whose Orb of Existence is it…?

Yuko-senpai…? Or…

It can’t be…

“Jurina…?” Hearing Rena’s soft whisper had snapped me out of my depressing chain of thoughts.

“… R-Rena… chan…” I tried holding in my tears, and even my vomit, thinking that the thing we found was from someone who ‘died’…

“W-What’s wrong…?” She looked worriedly at me, disregarding her creepy neighbor.

“… T-That sphere… is—"

My sentence was cut short by a strong blast of wind that suddenly blasted forth into the classroom, blowing the students off their seats and knocking them down almost immediately with the desks and chairs being scattered around the classroom as well. Luckily I had held onto Rena tightly the split second it happened, shielding her from any injuries.

“… Matsui… Jurina…”

Wind. Strong. A familiar voice.

Only one person fits that description…

“O-Oshima… Yuko… senpai…?!”

She was literally levitating in the center of the classroom, eyes glowing bright green as she unleashed another strong blast of wind, pushing aside all obstacles that blocked the path towards me and Rena-chan who were at the back of the classroom. It was a sickening sight to see, the teacher being blockaded by the teacher’s desk in front of the class; all the students looked like they were all lifeless under all the tables and desks.

It was as if a typhoon had just struck the classroom.

Rena-chan was on the verge of vomiting when I hugged onto her tightly to calm her down, still on the floor.

“… Heh… real people really don’t get affected by our powers… while these dolls… they just lay on the side… dead… ha… hahahaha…” Yuko let out a sadistic laugh before grinning evilly at me.

“D-Dolls…?! The heck are you talking about?! Have you gone mad Yuko-senpai?!” I exclaimed back for answers.

“I don’t think I have to explain anything to you…” A large Naginata shrouded in bright green streams of waving light suddenly appeared in her right hand and she was then covered in a spiral of wind, pointing the tip of her Naginata dangerously straight at me, at pretty much ‘point blank’. That just made me tightened my grip on Rena, tensing my glove-cladded hands so they would get engulfed in fire to protect the both of us.

Yuko-senpai then let out another sadistic laughter before looking like she was about to dive towards me.

“You’re the first prey of mine… Prepare to die, MATSUI JURINA!!!!!!”

I was really hoping that there would be some way that Churi and Airi didn't die. Actually, I'm still hoping that you'll bring them back.  :cry:
WMatsui isn't intimate strong enough now, so I don't think you'll make them die yet. I'm guessing they'll be "saved" from battle by the other pairs?

Once again

Were I to spoil anything at this moment, there is a possibility of Furuyanagi actually reappearing. ;) How and why? Well... hopefully it'll be shown in due time  :sweatdrop: And as you said, WMatsui is pretty much the only greenhorn pair comparing to the rest, true, and not forgetting they're the main characters so I don't think I would so mean as to kill them off just like that.......  :nervous

Right?  :P

Thanks for reading though ;) I'll try my best to update ASAP if uni work doesn't hold me back!

Omg ok so I am quite confused right now so if I am wrong, pls tell me >< :cry:

So, prev chapter, it showed how Furuyanagi met and how they died. And that was before they became guardian and master, am I wrong???
Ok then in this chapter, a pair already died and we are implying that Furuyanagi died?

Anyways, besides my confusion, I absolutely love this chapter  XD especially the wmatsui scene in the beginning OH GOODNESS IT WAS SO GOOOOOD  :inlove: :inlove: they're super cute when they ended up embrarassed and all hehe~

It may seem that you'll take quite some time before posting up the next chapter since you're busy right? I understand since I am super busy as well and cant seem to post my chapters regularly  :( but it's okay! I'll wait for you~

Re: Indestructible Fire (Main: WMatsui + Multi-pair) - ACT VI [28/2/2015]
« Reply #59 on: February 28, 2015, 10:38:26 PM »
Hello! Sorry for taking long  :sweatdrop: Uni work and real life. You all are considerate people yes?  :)

Really really~ thankful that you guys are still checking out this fic eventhough I haven't been updating  :nervous Ahh yes, about this... I have decided to update Indestructible Fire on a monthly basis. Yes... yes. Mmm unless well, I have exams in that month, I'll try to rush write up two chapters a month before (if possible) or after my exams so this way my updated will be consistent yes?  :thumbsup

The reason for my late update this time, other than coursework, is also because of lack of motivation... and well, because WMatsui hasn't been appealing at all. Not until I started watching things I haven't seen about the pair like a few episodes of Ebisho I missed out on and the freaking new PV for their coupling song on 'Green Flash'-- 'Sekai ga Naiteru Nara'-- plus a few doses of WMatsui fanfics by other authors here and there and BAM! My motivation is back!

However... this chapter-- mm... well, you'll see... to tell you all the truth, I have scrapped drafts over drafts about 10 times now thinking of what should happen and what shouldn't for this chapter and future chapters as well... :nervous Ah, do be warned, if this chapter does confuse you quite a bit... well... I kind of anticipated that. But please do bear with me!  There will be explanations, I promise!  :bow: :bow: :bow:

Hope y'all enjoy this update~

Oh and also to reply to a few users:
@TeenyTae: An update that I really hope you'll like! Looking forward to what you think of it  :nervous
@3MPRESS: Yes. 'Supposedly' Furuyanagi died. This chapter will explain more ;) Thank you for your understanding and patience!!!  :D
@BbSis: Haha it's alright :) I really appreciate you reading this.  ;) I won't give up as long as WMatsui motivates me! And of course, you readers too!  :twothumbs




Indestructible Fire

ACT VI

 “… Nngh……” The girl shielded her eyes with an arm instinctively as her eyes met the bright light shining directly above her.

As she allowed her eyes to get used to her surroundings, she noticed that she was in an unfamiliar room. And not just any room, but a cell-like room, with only a toilet-like area right opposite the bed she had just been sleeping on and not even a shower in sight. Other than the room having a bed and a miserable toilet-like area, it was completely empty. The fluorescent light panels above her was not particularly soothing to the eyes.
Finally, she had come to a realization after registering all the facts displayed in front of her.

She was trapped by someone unknown to her.

Immediately, she jumped out of bed, checking if she was injured but fortunately she was not. She even touched her forehead slowly and carefully, knowing full well that she was definitely shot at point blank before reappearing alive in such a confined environment, but there just were no signs of injuries anywhere on her body.

“… What’s going on…?” She questioned herself while trying to stay as calm as possible.

The next thing she did was to try opening the only metal door of the room that is most likely her only was out, seeing that there are no windows in the room. She tried her best to jerk the handle of the door but to no avail. Whoever put her in this room definitely wanted her to stay in there no matter what.

“H-Hey!” She began to pound hardly on the metal door, holding in the pain from whacking the door with her bare hands, “A-Anyone there?! HELP!!!” She yelled, hoping someone would come to her.

And this continued for quite a long time. She just could not sit around waiting for someone to rescue her. No. She had a person in mind, but she doubted that person would come to her rescue.

Not after she saw her getting killed before her eyes.

“Airi…” She called out said person’s name softly before bursting into tears of emotions. She witnessed her partner die before her eyes, and it definitely scarred her heart and soul.

As she slid down slowly onto the floor due to her legs giving in to the emotional stress on her shoulders, she heard a click on the door and suddenly, it was slid open, with two figures in Victorian-esque masks draped in long black cloaks, greeting her with voices that seem to have been electronically altered via a voice changing mechanism.

“Wow you’re awake? Seems like Charon-sama had underestimated the candidates this time,” the figure with a black mask with silver-white linings said with a chuckle.

The figure with a mask of inverted colours of the other knelt down to level her line of sight with the girl in tears as if he or she wanted to have a closer inspection of her, “Weird… you seem completely normal… even after Yami here shot you straight in the head…” she looked upwards to look at the other masked person named Yami, “You sure you shot her with the right bullet as you were told?”

Yami quickly retaliated, “Of course I did, Hikari! … No wait… crap…” The masked figure facepalmed at his or herself which made the latter snarl in frustration.

“Wonderful mistake, Yami. Just. Smart of you,” Hikari said sarcastically.

 “A-At any rate,” the black mask person suddenly grabbed Akane hard on the arm to pull her up and started to drag her away from the room she was in, “we’re bringing you to see ‘him’!”

“L-Let go of me!!!” Akane tried to struggle her way out of the strong grasp of Yami’s leather-gloved hands but her struggling was put to a halt when she felt the presence of a sharp object right behind her heck.

“Please cooperate with us, Takayanagi Akane-san. We have no intentions of hurting you, especially not in a sacred place like this,” Hikari whispered huskily into Akane’s ears from behind which made her cooperate in fear that she would have to experience ‘dying’ all over again.

“I-I… understand…”Akane gulped down saliva that had accumulated in her mouth before proceeding to walk off with Yami still grasping tightly onto the latter’s arm in case she were to escape.

Hikari sheathed her knife and followed behind the two with a sigh.

- - - - - -

They walked through a short hallway and when they arrived at their destination, Akane could not help but feel like her heart was about to explode and begun trembling subtly in fear. It looked like a control room which had big monitors on display and a few experimental tubes in the center on the room with suspicious-looking green fluid in them. The whole room was dimly lit, making it feel more eerie than it should be.

“Sir, she was the source of the noise… it seems like she woke up way ahead of schedule,” Yami voiced out at a dark figure that was sitting at an armchair in front of the panels and monitors at the front-center of the room.

“Ho…?” He spun his chair around to face Akane and the two masked people, revealing his masquerade-masked face to Akane, “Takayanagi… Akane. Am I right?”

Akane did not answer his question but instead, gritted her teeth and begun speaking with a threatening voice, “… Where’s… Airi…?”

“Oh… Furukawa Airi yes? The Guardian of Earth of the present ‘game’… she’s here.”

The bird-like girl’s eyes widened in shock. She had not expected that answer.

“… Where—"

The man suddenly stood up and went towards one of the experimental tubes in the center that was covered by a layer of metal which Akane did not notice upon entry and gestured for them to make Akane stand in front of it, gazing at the tube confusingly.

“What do you think is inside of this tube, Takayanagi Akane?” He asked her with a gentle voice with a hand on her shoulder.

“… H-How… would I know……” She said shakily.

“Hmm…” He could feel her tremble beneath his palms and so he let go of her tremble and looked at Yami and Hikari who were standing behind her, “Yami. Hikari. Would you mind doing the honour of revealing the answer to our honoured guest?”

“E-Eh?!” Hikari exclaimed before Yami placed a hand on the latter’s shoulder, shaking his or her head.

“Let’s not question Charon-sama, Hikari,” the latter nodded without another word and Yami continued, “Sir. We shall do as you command.”

Both of them lifted up their hands towards an unlit light switch on top of the tube and suddenly a beam of both bright, white light and ominous, black light beamed towards the switch and the sound of a generator could be heard resounding throughout the control room as the layer of metal slowly retracted itself, revealing the contents of the tube. Once the light switch mechanism had seemingly been lit up thanks to the two energy beams, they stopped and stepped aside to give their director and Akane more space.

The emotionally distressed girl could not believe her eyes. She literally burst into tears once more as the tube revealed what she least would expect to see but still hanged on to the hopes of seeing it.

“A… Ai… ri…” She called out softly the name of her ‘dead’ partner as she saw her in the tube, floating in the suspicious fluid but had a peaceful sleeping face.
“Surely you must have had a guess deep within your mind… you hoped that it was her, didn’t you, Takayanagi Akane?” The man spoke calmly.

Akane placed her hands on the glass of the tube, scanning her partner’s body. Everything was in one piece, that, she was relieved. She cried, placing her forehead on the glass with hands that curled up into balls of fists.

“Any questions, Takayanagi Akane?”

“… Is she… alive…?”

The man briefly nodded, “Yes. Her body is alive thanks to the waters of the River of Lethe… the river of forgetfulness and oblivion. And also… it allows her to be reincarnated… into the world of the next ‘game’.”

“N-Next… ‘game’…?” Akane painfully looked at the man.

“Yes… unless the winner this time is able to break this chain of fate... Otherwise, as you both were the first ones to ‘die’, you both will have a chance to redeem yourselves in another fight for life. This, is the world you all have agreed to live in now. Fight and fight… while showing me how strong bonds between humans are,” the man explained without any emotions.

“… You say it as if you aren’t human…”

“I will not comment on that, Takayanagi Akane,” he chuckled softly.

“… How do I bring her back to life… now…?” Akane asked, clenching her fists tightly till she could feel her nails diving into the skin of her palms.

“Oh yes… since you’re a special case, I do have a proposal for you,” he turned to both his subordinates and nodded, which they understood and dismissed themselves.

Akane looked over her shoulder slowly, towards the man, eyes filled with rage.

“There is only one way Furukawa Airi can be brought back to the land of the living. Would you like to—"

She grabbed onto the man’s cloak in anger to lower his upper body down to face her, growling at the man in the mask, “Tell me… tell me now… I would do anything…”

The man was intrigued by the girl’s furious actions, “Ho…? You have trusted her that much since you both were reincarnated into the present ‘world’, even without your memories…? How fascinating.”

“Get. To. The. Point…” Akane continued gripping onto his cloak, as if it was going to rip any time soon.

“... Looks like the water of forgetfulness isn’t as effective as time goes by hmm…” He sighed under his breath, “Alright Akane-san. If you would let go of me, I will tell you what you need to know.”

Akane pushed him back in anger, waiting for him to explain himself. He straightened himself up and reached for something concealed within his cloak. He then revealed it to Akane, who stood dumbstruck at the item he had been hiding within his cloak.

It was Airi’s dagger.

“If you want Airi-san to return… you will have to fight in her place as the Guardian of Earth, and take back her Orb of Existence from whoever has it… though apparently…” with a snap of his finger, one of the big monitors flickered on and broadcasted the scene where Jurina and Rena were cornered by Yuko. As if the computers knew what he would want next, it zoomed in on Rena’s bag which had Airi’s Orb of Existence sticking out of it.

“… The person who has your dear friend’s Orb is someone you’re rather friendly with.”

She bit her lips momentarily before voicing her thoughts, “… Jurina-chan…? Rena…?”

He had both his hands behind his back with one hand holding onto Airi’s dagger before he turned around to face the screen, “… Yes… Matsui Jurina and Matsui Rena… the ‘Aces’ of the ‘game’ this time.”

“… So… if I get the Orb back from them… Airin will wake up right…?”

“Yes but… it’s not that simple,” he turned back to face Akane once again, “You will have to assassinate either one of the Matsui as part of the special proposal.”

“W-What…”

She definitely did not want to believe what she just heard. She needed to kill off either Jurina or Rena? They may have just met and become friends in such a distorted world… and now she is being threatened to kill them to bring back the life of someone who claimed that she had died for her sake?
This was just too much to absorb in one goal.

It was ridiculous!

“Honestly, you’re the very first to wake up from your slumber even before the next ‘game’ begins. It has never happened up to date… Hence why this proposal is so special… killing someone you just met for the sake of someone who holds you dear... and ultimately, someone you cherish within the sea of your memories… I don’t think it’s hard to choose between the two,” he explained nonchalantly with Akane gritting her teeth.

“… You’re sick… you’re inhumane…”

“Hmm… maybe I am,” he then reached out to her with the dagger in hand once again, “Now. If you’re motivated enough to bring back Airi-san to the supposed ‘land of the living’, you will participate in this War. As the new stand-in… your ‘Command Seals’ will be traded in exchange for extra power for you to succeed. This is the best I can do.”

“… I haven’t even used it once…” She tugged her own upper left arm and glanced at it sadly.

“The decision is all yours now. You can choose to stay here to see the proceedings of the whole War while waiting with Airi-san to wake up and restart your lives in the ‘new world’… or… you can opt to take this weapon and fight to return Airi-san’s ‘heart’ to her lifeless body so that she can be brought back to life in this time, with her memories intact.”

Akane stared at the dagger for a moment and the screen at another moment before closing her eyes, deep in thought. It was either taking someone’s life to escalate the duration of time before she gets to have Airi alive by her side again or to wait, in which may result to her succumbing to depression in such a cramped space. Though she had clearly made her decision after pondering about it for quite a while, she was not entirely sure that what she has decided was the right thing to do but she knew she just had to trust her heart.

Clenching hard on her heart, she inhaled and exhaled deeply before she opened her mouth to tell the evil man her decision.

“… I will fight.”

“Are you sure?”

She opened her eyes, both orbs filled with determination but at the same time, guilt and sadness.

“Yes. For Airin… I owe her my life… though I may be prevented from knowing the full details of my past… but… I’ve seen how genuine she is to me…” She gave the man a sharp, unwavering glare, “… Now it’s time I repay her… as her Master.”

“Well said,” he handed the dagger to Akane who received it with trembling hands.

As she held the dagger in her own hands, rays of light shone directly at Akane and she could feel the feelings and emotions of the previous user—namely Airi, swirling into the depths of her soul, and swear she could feel her presence enveloping her very being. Fragments of Airi’s memory was also being constructed into Akane’s mind.

“W-What is this sensation…?!” Akane said, breathing heavily as Airi’s life after meeting Akane flashed before her eyes like a film, with all her feelings mixed into the memory, making Akane switch from emotion to emotion.

It was as if the longer she held onto the dagger, the more quickly she will be driven into madness. She was ready to throw the dagger away from her but the man quickly clasped his hands over hers so that she would not stop the process.

“… If you let go of this weapon now, your conscience will not be able to take it and you will be corrupted…”

Akane, believing in the surprisingly soothing voice of the man, continued with all her vigor and held in the pain and sorrow, shutting her eyes tightly, not knowing that he was lying to her.

In fact, he wanted her to go mad. This man had an ulterior motive. He desired for Akane to turn into a killing machine with no remorse were she to face off against her friends. He wanted to observe whether Akane has it in her to regain her sense of humanity when the time comes or whether she would succumb to all the feelings of desperation and sorrow and kill Matsui Jurina or Matsui Rena as told.

All of this was just a game to him. Seeing how another element had brilliantly presented itself to him to spice things up, not utilizing it would be such a waste.

He wanted to toy with the girls and scar them so badly and see who or which pair can keep their resolution the longest throughout this torture game.
It took a while for Akane to calm down from all the shock her body had to take from the dagger alone. The next moment she opened her eyes, they were lifeless, as if she had completely succumbed to the manipulation of an unknown entity. The man was delighted at the sight of the girl who had fallen into his trap.

“So… how are you feeling, Takayanagi Akane?”

“… Ready… to…” She gripped onto the dagger hard, licking her lips as if she was possessed by a demon, “… kill… Matsui Jurina… and Matsui Rena…”

“Both of them, I see. You’ve become rather ambitious,” He then placed his thumb and stretched his index finger to the other end of her forehead as if he was imparting something into her mind. Her left upper arm glowed and her eyes turned completely white, “… Now then… you haven’t used your three ‘Command Seals’ on Furukawa Airi… and so I will bestow you three powers that will give you an edge over the ‘strongest’ candidates of this War… who are now your main targets.”

Akane screamed at the top of her lungs. Whatever he was doing to her was driving her to insanity once again. By the time it ended, she had coughed out blood and her eyes were bleeding, though it had reverted back to lifeless black orbs and she had slouched over, ready to faint at any moment.
The man caught her in his arms as she gave in to the huge amount of pressure that had been done to her body as she slowly lost consciousness. The last thing she heard him say was this.

“Have a good rest, Takayanagi Akane… because the next moment you’ll wake up, will be the battlefield…”

Everything went black for her.

- - - - - -

The man then called his two subordinates to return her to her room and gave a task to Yami specifically.

“Would you mind awakening the ‘dolls’? Not only it’ll make the ‘game’ interesting but for Takayanagi Akane… it would give her a… head start.”

Yami nodded with a smirk hidden behind the mask, “Understood Sir.”

As they dismissed themselves from the room with an unconscious Akane, the man returned to his seat, and removed his mask. He let out a ball of air and took a shiny, spherical object out of his cloak and stared intently at it.

“Let’s see if your desperation is strong enough to succeed…” He spun the chair and raised the spherical object into the air, and made a comparison with Airi’s ‘Orb’ that was in Rena’s bag with the one he was holding which suddenly begun emitting a warm layer of light around it, “… Takayanagi… Akane….”

A mad man’s laughter resounded throughout the control room shortly after...
