Re: Vatas Shadow Pridus: The Story
Chapter One: The Beginning
Four figures sat on a cliff, overlooking a village. The sky was orange, the sun was leaving, the winds were starting up, showing the signs of a descend into nightfall. The villagers were leaving, going to their homes and families. Soon, it was night and all the villagers were fast asleep and the night lights brightened. One of the four figures grinned, flashing him teeth in the darkness.
"Finally, it's midnight." He said, and stood up. The moonlight hit his face, revealing a mask with the face of a dragon. "I hate being in these damn bloody jobs, they're just require so much....work." muttered another figure and too stood up, too wearing a mask, plain black. The other two figures too stood up, too wearing masks. All of them were armored.
Swords hung on their backs, gleaming in the moonlight and stained with blood. "Shut up, Menrui. Geez, you're always complaining about work. It's annoying" muttered another figure, to the person who talked the second. The man known as Menrui ruffled his hair with his hair. "It's not my fault, Toshi."
The person known as Toshi glared at Menrui. "Idiots....." muttered the last person, his long white hair blowing in the wind. Immediatly, Toshi spun around, her face bright red with anger. "What did you say, Nui?!" she yelled. The white haired man known as Nui said nothing. "Be quiet, Toshi, or the guards might hear us." the figure who talked first muttered. "There's no guards, stupid head! Are you blind, Vatas?!" Toshi said. Vatas glanced at her. "You mean you don't see them?"
Toshi took a long hard look at the village. "No."
"You see the crows and ravens on the ground? How about the birds on the look-out tower?"
"What about them?"
"Toshi, this is the Bird Clan. The ninjas here have a Kekkai Genkei that allows them to turn into any type of bird. They are a type of clan that specializes in espionage." Nui explained.
"So the Old Man sent us in to take them out, eh? Not so nice of him, huh." Menrui muttered. "So basically, we get to kick feathery butts and get paid too?" Toshi asked. Menrui shrugged. "Probably,"
Toshi slowly pulled out her sword, grinning wickedly. "Good enough for me." Menrui groaned. "There you go off again, Toshi." Fortunately, Toshi did not hear this. She had already jumped off the cliff, and into the village. Mumbling, Nui jumped after her, followed by Vatas. Menrui leaped down last, complaining as usual. "Damn hyperactive girl....!"
Note: As the Writer of this Story, I will have to tell you the Dangers of it. The next chapters will be highly bloody, with broken wings and feathers flying about. In a nutshell, the world will finally figure why some bird species today are endangered or worse, extinct.
The group landed down on the floor. Once they land, a burst of dust exploded on the ground where they stood. The dust died soon enough and the group slowly stood up.
"So this is the Bird Clan, huh..." Menrui muttered, gazing at the empty street, cluttered with feathers and bird droppings on the ground. Now in the streets, with better light, the team could be seen better. Nui was tall, thin and had white long hair, along with fair skin. His serious but calm face reflected in the street light. He wore a black kimino, topped with a black kimino. Toshi was short, with short blond hair pulled in a ponytail and her face with the trademark scowl, with a mix of tan and white skin. She wore a red jacket, and jeans, completed with a hood. Menrui wore a long-sleeved black shirt, topped with a green jacket. He had white skin, along with Vatas. Vatas was dressed in a black cloak, complete with a hood. Red flames hung in the bottom of his cloak and his dragon mask gazed from corner to corner, emotionless.
Toshi smiled. "Now then, time to fight!" She reached for her back and unsheates her sword, a mixture of a katana and dagger. Not surprisingly, the sword had no handle at all. Nui then took out a mask and begin to study it while Menrui continued mumbling about something. All the while, small shadows lingered and prowled through the streets. Vatas was the first to notice this. Before he could warn his team, a blast of wind struck Menrui. He was sent flying. He hit the ground. Nui and Vatas, automatically pulled out there swords. Toshi, surprised, sets herself in a stance, ready for the next attack.
"Well well, look at what we have here." the attacker said, his mouth seemingly pulling back in a fang-like evil grin.
