[Ragna] – [Platinum]
Platinum struggled against Taokaka, who was constantly leaping onto her and now sniffing her, it made Platinum very uncomftable indeed.
“No bad touch on Luna you perverted cat!” Platinum shouted angrily, slapping away Taokaka with a swipe of her hand “Geez I guess hanging around this pedo for five minutes will turn anyone into a mouth breathing pervert!” she added, shooting Ragna a very filthy look.
“Hey you little bitch!” Ragna shouted, his voice on par with the fire behind Platinum’s “I told you to stop calling me that!”
“Luna just calls it like she sees it!” she shouted back, sticking her tongue out at Ragna.
“I swear to god….I’m going to kick Jubei’s ass when I see him, first Tao and now you? Why does he think I need a walking circus following me everywhere? I was perfectly fine on my own!” Ragna shouted, frustration venting up within him.
“hehehehehe” Luna chuckled “Master Jubei just knows how worthless you are!”
“Luna….that was a bit harsh” said Sena.
“I really, really, REALLY don’t have time for this shit, get lost you punks, or I swear to god I’ll kill you!” said Ragna, drawing his sword.
“Bring it on loser!” Luna taunted, drawing her own staff “Luna can beat the crap out of you any day of the week!”
They both stood there, weapons drawn, ready to fight with looks of hatred on both their faces.
Litchi nodded at Tazuka’s command and turned to face towards a small ravine ahead of them where a particularly dense amount of seither had gathered. She walked towards it and Tazuka followed, keeping a steady pace behind her to ensure his protection remained around her.
Litchi stood at the edge of the ravine and looked down towards the congregation of seither, Relius wanted it to be investigated so ultimately that meant finding out why such a large amount had gathered here. Litchi couldn’t really see what this would achieve but remembering Hazama had wanted her with the NOL due to her knowledge on the seither flow theory she couldn’t shake the feeling that this had something to do with it.
“There’s a small cave down there….” Litchi said “We need to get down there”
“Allow me” Tazuka said and with a snap of his fingers they were gone and reappeared outside of the cave Litchi spoke of and they both walked in, side by side.
“So….” Said Tazuka “where did we leave things….ah yes I remember, you told me you did this for a man you love?”
“Yes” she replied, starting to wish she hadn’t said anything, he seemed very nosy but at the same time she remembered that Tazuka seemed to know a lot about the boundary so maybe he was the one who could finally help her.
“Allow me to make an educated guess and assume that this man was a scientist, not unlike yourself, who, also like yourself studied the boundary and was a very smart man I mean he would have to do what he did” said Tazuka.
“That’s right, his name was Lotte Carmine” said Litchi as they continued to walk through the cave “he was obsessed with gaining the wisdom of the boundary and when he finally did, he lost his humanity”
“Such is the fate for any human who taps into the knowledge only us observers are allowed to access” Tazuka replied “In your desperation and helplessness you decided to tap into that same power, hoping you could gain the knowledge to save him”
“I had to do something…” she said “I should have stopped him before…now he’s hurt people to keep himself alive, I have to stop him, I have to save him”
“I know what it feels like when love decides to stab you in the heart Litchi” said Tazuka, her story of heartache reminded him vaguely of his own “You have my sympathy; clearly you’ve been through a lot”
“Thank you” said Litchi “I…was meaning to ask this since you said you know about the boundary but do you know if there’s a way to save him….and me?” she asked.
“Ah, I am afraid I must disappoint you my dear” he said, Litchi’s expression turned from hopeful to crestfallen, it was what she had dreaded to hear from him.
“The boundary was never meant to even be known of by the humans, let alone its powers tapped into by then, very nasty and unpredictable things happen with the boundary, your infection could be very different to his, there’s no telling what it will do but if you’re lucky….it’ll simply kill you and you won’t have to suffer like he does, it may be that the only way you can save him is to kill him so he doesn’t suffer anymore” he said, his words filled Litchi with fear…was death really the only escape from this?
“But do not take my words for the absolute truth, I am not a god and I didn’t write the rules of existence so a cure may exist but I do not know of it” he told her.
She didn’t reply, instead she was deep in thought. Could the NOL really have a cure that not even this observer knew of?
[Flashback] – [Tazuka]
Tazuka had now taken the seemingly eternal walk down the isle; proud looks from both the Nosferatu and Alucard families followed him. They were outside, on the side of the Alucards past the row of chairs a wide field of red roses while on the side of the Nosferatus a field of white roses, symbolising the families.
He hid the nervousness from his face. They had rehearsed the ceremony several times before; Tazuka had remembered his lines without a hitch yet he felt like he would mess everything up. No, he was being silly….he wouldn’t, this was supposed to be the happiest day of his life, marrying the girl he loved. Tazuka took a deep breath and forced the nerves to the back of his mind as he reached the end of the isle where his father and an old priest stood.
“Tazuka my boy” said his father, tears gleaming in his eyes “look at you, a vision of myself when I married your mother, you’ve grown into a fine young man”
“Thank you father, I just wish mother could have seen this” said Tazuka.
“I know she would be as proud as I am now” Nebiru replied.
Tazuka smiled at his father’s praise as their awaited for the arrival of the bride. Clavis Alucard stood at the other end, waiting for Rachel for he would be the one giving her away.
[Relius] – [Phantom]
“I was told to oversee the Imperator’s sword” she replied.
“I’m nearly finished with it” said Relius “suffice to say the Imperator will soon have her own link to the true azure grimoire, it has turned out exactly as how Hazama envisioned it, I wonder to myself if he truly has a grand plan….or if he makes it up as he goes along”
He turned away from Phantom and continued to oversee Nu-13. From the sight he possessed of souls, he could clearly see Nu-13 not only harboured the soul Relius had programmed into her previously but fragments of the soul that matched Ragna The Bloodedge. Interestingly they both matched that of the Black Beast, so as he suspected they were the ingredients needed that formed the Black Beast that had originally raged on the earth.
“Heh, I really do owe you and Ragna The Bloodedge my thanks….” Relius said to himself.
“I’m finished” he said after a few more minutes, turning to Phantom “please provide us with some quick transport to the Imperator”
[Flashback] – [Relius] – [Carl]
“Yes Father” Carl said rather nervously, unable to look his Father in the eye not that he could due to his mask anyway “I hope I can be good enough to be in the armaments division”
“You have potential my boy, I’ve seen that much” said Relius.
“You’ll be fine Carl” said Ada “we have faith in you, who knows maybe you could surpass Father” she added with a smile.
Relius smirked at the thought “I would welcome the challenge” a rivalry with his son would certainly be interesting.
“Now, now Relius dear, you don’t want to start a rivalry with your own son before he’s even gone to the academy” Ignis said with a chuckle.
Relius continued to smirk as he surveyed Carl’s reaction, he didn’t show any enthusiasm to the idea but he still had time, hopefully he would be stronger after his education or else Relius would have little use for him…..
Jubei shook his head as he followed Jin. He had been hoping that training Jin would at least be a little easier then training Ragna but if anything Jin was even more hard headed and stubborn. He had definitely changed since Jubei had known him as the dependent and slightly whiny child.
He kept a steady pace behind Jin, deciding to let him decide where they would go for now. Jubei decided not to talk to him, letting him vent out his feelings of need be.
[Nox] – [Tager]
Nox smiled, she took it well, much more so then he thought she would.
“Exactly what I was thinking” he said “You’re still our Noelie, always will be”
Nox gave her another smile before turning away from her to Tager.
“Ok Tager, you know what we have to do?” he asked.
“Yes, retrieve the coffins and return them to sector seven, Kokonoe wants them for further experiments and tests to check their viability” said Tager “Makoto, Nathan, please watch the entrance, Kokonoe fears the NOL could try to snatch these at any time”
“I’m glad you’re here Tager” said Nox as he had just attempted to push one of the coffins “these things weigh a ton…I think I’ll go check the consoles for any leftover data…you have the teleportation Ars right?” he asked.
“Yes, it’s set up to allow quick transport between Kokonoe’s lab and this room, since there are several coffins” said Tager.
Nox nodded “alright then, let’s get to it!” he said as he and Tager turned away from each to carry out their tasks.
[Nox] – [Flashback]
“Whoa what the!?” Nox cried out as Noel lost consciousness and plummeted to the ground and Nox was able to quickly hold out his arm and save her from a nasty fall.
“She doesn’t look pale….I guess she just felt light headed….” Nox said, examining her face. He decided that he should get her to her dorm then he could go get help, hopefully Noel’s room mates were there to open the door from him.
He carried Noel in his arms up several flights of stairs, ignoring the bewildered looks from students he passed. Eventually he reached the door to Noel dormitory but since his hands were full holding Noel he had to call out and hope someone was there to open the door.
“Hey!” he called “anyone in there? Could you open the door please?”
