Re: Vatas Shadow Pridus: The Story
Special: Nui Gaiden!
Chapter Thirty-Two: The Calm Before the Storm of Ice
Nui offered a confused look at his companions. "Frozen Wastelands?" Sakura returned his question with an answer:
"The Frozen Wastelands: Over ten thousand kilometers of nothing but ice and snow that is north of the Crossroads. The Ice Puppets Clan is located about twenty kilometers east of where we are now and that part of the land is managed by the Kurikage. It is also here where Hisagi Onimusha is rumored to reside."
With that, Sakura glared at the ice underneath her feet as Nui glanced away, both in a mixture of loss and pain.
The Black Gate remained open, patiently waiting for its victims (Oh wait, did I said victims, whoops) users to come to it, releasing a menacing feel in the chilly wind as it sat there with that symbol on it that sent chills to everybody's spines for only one reason that only they knew.
The brunette-haired woman known as Matsumora then started walking toward the Black Gate. The child named Allon quickly followed suit, his eyes still closed. The wolf-faced Kaname was behind all of them, stomping on the ice floor as it shook and cracked with each step he took, threatening to break and sent him into the chilly depths of the ocean waiting just beneath him.
After crossing past twenty yards, they were now standing before the Black Gate, yet neither of them were excited about actually venturing in there, after have hearing all of the unconfirmed rumors. "So...who wants to go in first?" Matsumora asked, hoping someone would answer it with a "yes".
Neither of her companions answered, both of them as nervous as they are.
"Alright then," Matsumora muttered and then moved toward Allon. Before the boy could say anything, she kicked him in the rear end and he was sent flying into the Black Gate.
Matsumora then stood there for a moment. She then grinned when she heard nothing, deciding that it was safe. With that, she ran at the door excitedly and too disappeared into complete darkness.
Kaname went last, jumping into as the Black Gate closed with a slam.
What inside the Black Gate was nothing that anyone would have expected, but what was the opposite of what they would have guessed. Matsumora, Allon, and Kaname all widened their eyes in shock as they flew through the hot air, steadily approaching the sandy desert below them and the sun hit their faces.
Allon was the first to land: he softly hit the crusty sand, causing a small but quiet explosion of sand as it flew around him. Matsumora landed to his right, and with a louder landing of sand. Kaname struck the ground like a bullet. The split-second he struck the calm desert, it exploded sand everywhere around him, creating a small sandstorm that only lasted a moment as everyone shielded their eyes.
They each slowly stood up, slowly taking in their surroundings.
"Surprising, isn't it? I'll give you all a few minutes to take it in."
Immediately, all heads turned to the direction where the voice had just come from. The voice seemed hypnotic, and had a light British accent to it. Soon, everyone's eyes widened as they looked at the man himself, in the flesh, Lord Hisagi Onimusha.
