As the Hourglass turns

Post by Mika Maru »

What is balance?

The cycle of life and death.

Light and Dark

Yin and Yang

Lumina and Djinn...

The slim man walked down the isles of the large city as he stumbled over his drunken feet, his pores bled the stench of cheap booze and the need for a bath. His long silky hair fell over his redden face and his clothing hung off him. This man was surly a bum, a lost soul, and he only found himself at the end of a bottle. He was lost no soul was in this man. Only pain...

"This is the last for the night I guess. good dinner Sha.. Ahh."

The night sky was blanketed in a grey cloud of thunder and lighting that soon caused the rain drops to fall and within seconds the always bustling street was now a lifeless scenery. Yet the man was in no rush, nor was he headed to a destination. He only slowed his movement. As he would turn down the alley way that would lead him to his home. He stubbles still each step becoming more intoxicating as he fumbled closer to his stairway. Walking up the stairs one could feel the eyes of another preying on them. However this man senses where off a bit. He soon reached his door and pulled his key out, just then a strong current of wind would take him back as something got in his eye forcing him to drop his keys. He would reach for them and hear a cry that sent a bullet of fear into his spine.

" Please.. Help.. Meee..."

He would turn to face a girl.

"Nanasi what are you doing out at this time? Is your mom home? Now come on I'm sure your Mom and Dad are worried sick about you. Don't you think you came a bit far for some hide and seek?"

The man said as he walked closer to the girl. She remained silent, this made the man ask his question again and this time something happened. The lights would faze out and now the rwo of them were alone in thedark back way of the apartment building. In the distant The Maru watched from afar. One of them a boy nomore than the age of 14 or 15 comm would static and connect to another person.

"This should be an easy target for you three, Move fast the shadowbeast are moving to the floor with the unwanted bait. You have 12 hours from sunrise."

He sat just above the landing to where this was all occuring, his father in his ear, as he spoke a girl with short black hair and a ruby bang camme to stand next tio the sitting boy.

"Are you ready brother?.." She said.

"You two are late... I been watching this thing go nuts for the last hour... I was able to place a barrier around the building stopping it from exiting however this idiot showed up like a fountain of sorrow and set it off again. Everyone has been killed. 7 floors 14 units 38 victims. It seems they all trusted this girl the demon took control of, which made them all easy targets. Moved fast... By the time I got here I had to make the call to seal the building... This thing gets no mercy..." He said. As he stood to his feet. There was a clear size difference in the three Maru clan Members. The Youngest son stood the middle of the three Natsuka, while to the right stood his twin sister Natashina and on the left side is where Mika stood. His eyes focused on the event that was happening now. "We can't let another person die tonight.. Got that.. Tsuka... Tasha... Intercept and trap to begin exercising. I'll call forth the Heaven Blades. "

In that instant the girl and the young boy vanish as the man reach out for the little girl. He was then taken by feat as the creature went on the attack. The creature would transform from the girl as he fell backwards out of fear. The creature would strike and the wells of the man would be hear..


The air would cut as a single swing of a mech scythe cut through the arm of the monster. The cries of the man would halt as he came to see he didnt get harmed in anyway.

"What's going on? Who.. A-Are you?.."

The man would look at the girl who stood before him, she had short silky black hair with red highlights randomly patched out in her hair that was slick back. She wore all black dress with a red hooded jaclet with a gaint white lotus on the back. She wore punk rock platform boots, she looked like the very definition of punk rocker. She had a lip piecinf and tattoos that stood out all ouver her body however there was one mark on her middle finger. On her Middle finger was the shape of a diamond .

"Red Jacket with a white lotus.... Black and red hair.. That means your.. The Scarlett Saint... and that means.. "

His foot step would be heard running down the hall as the man spoke.

"First note.. Saints Art: Gravity Shift."
with a snap of his fingers a wave of naten would shoot down the hall and everyone began to float. The creature would scribble and scurry for the ground below but it only made the attempt unfeasible. The cries of its struggle would be ear retching.

"Now your chance Brother.."

Tsuka said as the foot steps of Mika came to stop on the side of him, small particles of light began to spill from the openings of his clothing like sand falling in an hourglass. His face emotionless as he gave a sigh. His words crisp and stern as he manifested his heavenly weapon. " First step:Sands of Purity.. Second Step: Chained Darkness..." The sands would combine and form a chain like shape. Quickly wrapping the creature into a ball of solid light. "Third Step... Saints Art: Rebirth" The ball of light would begin to radiate and glow as a humming covered the halls. The man watched in awe as the trio went to work.

"Final Step: Heavenly Judgement- Soulpass"

Mika said as he drew a white blade with an aura so powerful it would could be visible to the man who watched. Instantly Mika appeared just before the ball of light striking it with the blade. Out from the orb of light he would pull a disfigured monster that would split in half as Mika forced it to the ground. The creature would disappear into a puddle of dark matter that resembled blood. "Hurry Natashina!"

Tsuka would release the gravity spell and as Tasha felt to the ground the diamond on her finger shined a golden glow. "Final Song Saints Art: Soul Pass!"
the puddle of blood would glow a purple hue then white as they purified the blood turning it back to its original red hue as Tasha manifested her power.
Mika would stand upright when the job was done.

"Are you okay sir? I am sorry but you and this little girl are the only ones left alive.. I wouldn't tell her right away... But she'll have to know, she have to know... Her parents were murdered... But don't tell her it was by her hands..."

The three of them began exit out the building as the little girl falls from the orb of light and it vanishes back into the sleeves of Mika. His word stung into the man soul. They seemed cold but it was true in all aspect of what happened. The Sirens of the local police would be heard as they exited once the reached outside they explain what happen to the officers and then they would get in their limo riding off down the wet roads of the dark city streets.
