Chapter Fifty: The Bloody Gemini
~ It is our fiftieth chapter, thus our fiftieth anniversary! ^^ Unfortunately, the party will officially kick off tomorrow, not today, with more than one chapter on Friday AND Saturday! And what better way to start it off with a complete psychopath with an unbearable lust for killing? xDDD
Dark-red blood splashed everywhere, flowing into the water on the concrete and mixing along. Without a sound, Toshi collapsed, a small and narrow hole on her shoulder. "Whoops, I missed." Tenso said, grinning evilly as he saw Vatas catch the falling Toshi in his arms.
Before Tenso could attack, Vatas quickly closed his eyes, as he suddenly vanished, along with the unconscious Toshi. The disappearance of Vatas followed with a loud static noise, which put a dent on everyone's ears for a moment.
Vatas reappeared again, this time behind Nui. He was standing on both legs, but was leaning down, due to carrying Toshi in his arms. "Ooh, a Jinsoku Raikou (Swift Lightning),
eh?" Tenso observed and swept his weapon at the air as Toshi's blood flew out, dispersing into the floor. Vatas remained silent. Finally, he spoke: "Nui, leave this man to me," Nui glanced at him in shock, for he had never said anything so irrational before. "I know that you have history with him, and that you are stronger than I am, but right now, Toshi needs you. Go elsewhere and heal her wounds." Nui remained silent for a moment, however, Tenso quickly took advantage of the situation and began to form handsigns. Alerted, Vatas and Nui both leaped back swiftly, as Vatas said, "Nui, go!" Nui sighed. He slowly bent down and took Toshi from Vatas and replied, "I am counting on you, Vatas Shadow Pridus. If you die, I will blame the cause of your death as mine." Vatas smirked. "Always the one to be noble."
Nui offered a small smile as he said, "Generally." His eyes gazed off at the Tenso, who continued to form handsigns. "Jinsoku Raikou.
" he murmured and disappeared, leaving behind a static sound that rang in Vatas's ears. Meanwhile, Vatas's smile vanished off his face, replaced with a small snarl as he witnessed Tenso yell, "Fire Style: Glorious Flame Fist!" Tenso then quickly recoiled his arm, pulling it back and tightened his knuckles. Then, he punched the air, as a large bright fireball appeared, enormous. Senso then formed another handsign, and said, "Fire Style: Oil Spray!" The oil splashed onto the water, prevailing over it and gaining control as the fireball swiftly advanced toward Vatas. The fireball quickly went through the air, as Vatas formed a handsign and muttered, "Earth Style: Earth Wall."
Instantly, the concrete shifted, as a wall of earth were formed over Vatas. The large fireball created from Tenso's fist smashed head-on into the earth wall, as chunks of earth were destroyed. Vatas quickly skittered, retreating from the falling pieces of earth. He watched as the fire continued to glow on the remaining pieces of the wall that was above the water. It continued burner, even though it had used up most of its power
, Vatas calmly observed as he saw Tenso, standing in the exact location a few moments ago, grinned broadly and vanished. What followed up was a static noise, as Tenso appeared before Vatas and elbowed him for behind. Coughing form the impact, Vatas was sent flying.
However, he quickly took control, and formed a handsign, yelling, "Lightning Style: Twin Lightning!" Instantly, two lightning bolts shot out of his hands, both equally same in size, as well as speed. The lightning bolts sped toward Tenso, who went on his knees and ungracefully yet effective rolled over, dodging each other bolts as they instead struck the concrete and dispersed into small shocks of lightning. Tenso remained grinning, but then he felt an odd sensation within him. Tenso immediately collapsed, his knees and hands splashing into the water, used to support him. He then realized what had happened, when he saw the small discharges of lightning in the water. "You.."
"Yes. I knew you would be too swift for me to actually catch you with my thunderbolts, so I aimed them in the water near you, where they would release a discharge in impact and shock you, immobilizing you as well." Vatas observed. "You damn kid." Tenso muttered, grinning even though he was in a grim situation.
Vatas then unsheathed his blade, and said, "Now, good bye." Tenso grinned. "Such reckless words of a little boy." He then grinned as Vatas realized he had miscalculated. He glanced back, and saw the fire from Tenso's jutsu, sitting on the oil.
The fire quickly spread, consuming both the sewer waters and its discharged electricity. Before Vatas could realize further, the electricity around Tenso died, sucked in with the sewers' water, as he stood up. Reaching into his holster pouch and scorching the papery part with a matcher, he threw the small kunai, attached with a burned paper bomb, at the large mass of burning flames.
His aim was dead-on.
