"I watched him walk out the door, a tear about to run down his face. He turned to me and looked down, then back up at me. His voice shuttered a little bit as he said ~"I love you, and I promise I'll come home."~ Those were the last words I ever heard from him again. Every day I look at the door and wish he never accepted that mission, but the village and his squad needed him. Listen to me Ryuuno, I want to see you grow up and have a family, I don't want you to be out of my life forever like your father. Please, I'm begging you! You can't go to war nations over, it's just to far...", Ryuuno's mother said crying. "Your a wonderful young man, your orange hair, and pretty gold eyes, Ryuuno you look just like your father. You are him, and I don't want to lose you." She cried more.
I looked at her. I could just see how much she didn't want me to leave. My mother has nothing left, but me. Her heart was filling up, like a puddle filling up with water. The more she cried the more the puddle grew, her heart swelled with anger and sadness. Could I really do this to her? Yes, I have to go, I already accepted going to war with my squad. "Mother. I must go now, I'm sorry. Look I know you don't want another promise, but I will return to you alive and well. I promise." I turned and walked out the door, and never looked back.
I was eighteen then, and now I'm twenty three. I've wasted four years in here. The war was only a year, and yet I'm still gone. That day... That day I was with my mother how I wish I stayed. It replays in my mind every waking minute I am stuck in this hell. Though this hell isn't warm, it's cold. Screams are from every direction, pleas for help echo down the halls and threw the cells. This is what being a prisoner is like, pure hell. I lay here on this cold metal bed thing, my arms behind my head looking at the ceiling, just wishing I could have stopped that one man...
"Hey! Get up. It's time you gotta go to the fighting arena. The whole village is here, and they want entertainment. Oh, and you'll like who your fighting. Hehehe." The large guard said opening Ryuuno's cell.
I got up and looked at him, his eyes cold as ice, and followed him to the arena. I thought to myself as we walked down the hall, why am I still here? I've been in here for four years and they said once I win a fight I can leave, I've won so many fights! Killing many innocent people, they were my fellow soldiers in war! Still not not a single ounce of freedom! I do this and all I get are blood thirsty people cheering and screaming at me. Just then as we were walking by I looked over, there was my opponent getting dragged out of his cell... It was my best friend, Minako... another man from the squad I was in. My heart started to fill with anger. Why do I fight my own villagers!? There are other men here from other places, men I don't know! Why? Then Minako looked up and saw it was me he had to fight. I could tell his heart sank. The guard and him followed us down the rest of the hallway in silence. As we got closer we could hear the arena screaming for us, they wanted us both to be gone. In there will be the worst hell imaginable, I swallowed hard, and took a deep breath. This might just be the end.
I am so mad right now, I can hear my heart pounding in my ears. Next to me the large guard is laughing to himself, though it wasn't a quiet laugh. I look around to see if it's only me and the other three around. For some odd reason there were only those two guards on duty that day. I glance back at Minako, he's staring right at me. I then remembered the day when we were growing up, we had eye and hand signals. Come'on remember! I yelled to myself in my head, heres the chance you and your best friend can get away now. The exit is right at the end of the hallway you came from. Three hundred feet away. THINK! Just then it came to me. The signal for fight, it was two winks from the right eye, oh man I hope he remembered the signals. We used that one a lot too growing up, always on missions. I turned around and gave him the winks. He smiled, I know we can make it now.
"Okay boys, it's time to go in! We'll only see one of ya at the end, wish you both luck." The guard said next to Minako. Just as he finished saying that my guard the larger one, started digging for his keys to open the door. Minako then punched his guard in the face knocking him to the ground. As he was falling Minako grabbed the knife that was in the guards pocket and before the guard could yell he had it to his throat.
My guard was still fumbling with his keys, so I hit him in the back knocking the wind out of him, and then wrapped my arm around his neck and slammed him to the ground. Both of them were astonished to what we have done. Minako looks at me then, and I wink to him once with the left eye meaning knock out hit. We did the same, with both out we started looking for what to get to escape. Just then the crowed on the other side of the door got louder. Something must be happening. Minako then says "Grab his keys. We can go out the door down the hall. We'll be free." I nod yes to him and grab the keys. Both of us start to run down the hall, hearing fellow men, villagers, friends calling for our help to let them out. I stop dead in my tracks. I can't leave them. They have family to get to also. Minako stopped and yelled to me "Lets go Ryuuno! We don't have time! There are hundreds of these cells, we can't save them all!" I yelled to him I can't leave them! They have promises too! Minako grabbed my arm and pulled me to the door. Just as we got to it the arena door slammed open and a small group of guards came charging our way.
I couldn't find the right key... and started to get angry. I yelled at myself again in my head. Come on this is our only chance at freedom! If we are caught we are for sure dead. I was on the last key and the guards were forty feet away now, it opened the door, and sunlight filled my eyes. Light, hope, freedom.
Minako and I ran out, and shut the door behind us locking it as we closed it. We were free now.
Tell me what you think, and if I should keep going.
Chapter Two: Who?
Minako and I ran into the woods nearby, we ran and ran. We probably didn't stop till we couldn't go no farther. I said to him "We have to rest, I can't go no further." He shook his head in agreement. I looked around at the area, we are still in woods and now we are by a lake, at least we have water and I'm sure we could find something to eat. Minako stood up, and said "How are we going to get home? I want to see my girlfriend, I miss her so much." Just then I realized that our village lost, and that means it could have been taken over. Everyone gone, and killed. Fear engulfed my body, we have to go now. I then stood up and started to run, I didn't know where I was going, all I knew was I am going home. I have to see my mother. Minako then yelled to me "STOP! We have to rest, we can move out in the morning! Ryuuno! STOP!" I stopped, and went back. "I'm sorry Minako, I don't know what came over me." I went and laid down in the grass. "I'm going to sleep, night." He didn't say anything back.
. . .
I woke up to seeing two large eyes staring me down, face to face. As I was about to scream at the person they put some sort of powder in my face. I was out again.
. . .
This time I woke up to being tied to a tree with Minako. He looked over and saw I was awake, "Hey, your up finally." I replied to him "Yeah, so what's going on? Who the he-..." I looked up and there she was. I was stunned, she was beautiful. She had long blonde hair and pretty green eyes, also she was very skinny. She wore shorts and a skimpy top, with a sword on her hip. "Ugh, who are you? and why did you do this to us?" She snapped her head right at us. "You guys are awake now, huh. Mmm, I guess I'll tell you who I am. I'm Yuzuki Nami and I'm 21. I have no village and no home, well other than these woods. May I ask who you two are?" Minako was the first to answer back "I'm Minako Amo, and I'm 23. I was a prisoner of war, and I'm from the Village hidden in the Fault." Yuzuki laughed "Fault? What kind of name is that?" It was my turn to answer now "It's called the Fault because it's near a Fault line for earthquakes." She stopped laughing then "Why would you want to live there!?" Mianko then said "Because there hasn't been an earthquake in hundreds of years." "Ohhh, anyways who are you? The one with Orange Hair. She was talking about me, "I'm Ryuuno, I'm 23 also. Same story and same village. NOW why did you tie us up?" "I tied you two up because you are in my woods!" "Yeah, so we are in your woods, let us go so we can leave and go home!" I yelled at her.
She let us go, but fallowed us from behind. Minako leaned to the side and whispered in my ear "Why is she fallowing us?" "I don't know? Lets just ask her. HEY! Yuzu- awh darn, um... YUZUKI! Why are you fallowing us?" She looked mad then "I'm fallowing you guys because you are here." I rolled my eyes, "We want to go, trust me we aren't going to do anything here. Oh, one more thing can you tell us where we are at?" She then said "You are in the Village Hidden in the Screams's woods. It's about a couple miles from another village, and that's-" Minako then shouted "WHAT!? We are villages away from home, we are never going to get back at this pace. We have to get going!" he started to run.
