Phew, it’s been a while since I’ve done one of these! Anyway, I am as bored as hell so I’m doing this!
Story: Ever wondered why Tasuki said that he hated women? What if it wasn’t because he hated them, or was it that there was only one woman for him, and he had found her then lost her in the same day.
A/N: This is MEANT to be only a One-shot…buuuuuuuuuuut, if I get enough interest from my audience, I will continue with it! I pull ideas out of my ass all the time and they are awesome!
Anyway, on with the story!
Rekka Shin’en
It was dark when he went to sleep. Darker than usual. He had felt off all day. He had let some kid get the better of him when they were stealing from a traveling caravan. He didn’t know what was wrong with him, he was usually in control when he did a job like that. Even his friend, Koji, knew that something was up.
He didn’t know what it was though. It felt like he was being pulled elsewhere, but he didn’t know where. His dreams lately had been weird too. He kept seeing things that he didn’t know what they were. He was always in the same place. It was cold and wet, the sound of dripping water every few seconds. Footsteps would come and go. He could hear sounds that he couldn’t identify. What was worst of all was the horrid smell that assaulted his nose everytime he had the dream.
But, lately, it had seemed more than just a dream. Lately, when he had woken up, his clothes has been wet, he would be freezing and the smell was all over him.
Even on their job today, just when he was about to take the prize he had been looking for, he could smell it all of a sudden and the temperature was dropping. It creeped him out that this was happening, first in his dreams and now when he was awake.
Though, Koji mentioned one thing that concerned him greatly whenever it happened. That his mark of Suzaku would glow whenever he would start to smell and feel the changes around him. Genrou, one of the best bandits around, was worried about what was happening to him. Had the priestess of Suzaku come? But, if that was true, why was he having these dreams?
It didn’t make sense, so Genrou decided that tonight, he would focus on the dream to figure out what was going on. He was a little nervous, but soon enough, he was on his bed, and falling asleep. He didn’t know what to do in order to keep focus during a dream, but he wasn’t going to let this one go until he figured it out.
Koji, being the friend that he was, stepped in to check on Genrou. His behavior was strange lately, he was saying that he could smell things, feel things and hear things that weren’t really happening. As his friend, he had to find out what was happening to him. And, as he stepped into Genrou’s room, his eyes widened at what he was seeing.
Genrou’s mark of Suzaku was glowing and before Koji could even blink, his friend had disappeared in a red light, leaving only a light imprint of his form on his bed.
