Azuki consciously held her arms together. "M-My arms aren't flabby!!! All my weight goes to my tummy!" She pinched her stomach and cried softly to herself.

Upon Lily using her as a ride, she was too intimidated to say no or convince her otherwise since she didn't want to become Azuki stew. Plus, she was scared of the hidden people who suddenly wanted them. So she ran full speed into the forested area all the while regretting having entered this game.

"This Ouija board game sucks!!!" Azuki cried as she ran into the forest.

Everyone stood up the moment Azuki ran into the forest with Lily on her back. They chased after them, throwing rocks, rubble, debris, anything really.

"I think it's pretty fun! It's not everyday I get such a big horsie!" Lily tittered through her teeth.

"Psst!" A boy's voice called out from behind a tree. "Come here, quickly!" He ushered them with his hands and began running off somewhere.

"Hmm..." Lily stared at the back of the boy, recognizing the uniform he was wearing. He's wearing Gifted Art's uniform... Just where are we? We can't still be on Pudello, everything here is a wreck! "Horsie! Follow that guy! No time to think, I don't want you to die if it's not by me." Lily frowned, genuinely looking sad.

"PLEASE DON'T SAY THAT I DON'T WANT TO DIE AT ALL, ONE PIECE HASN'T ENDED YET!!!" Azuki cried and obediently followed the unknown boy through the forest. She wasn't thinking much, anyway. If someone was out there ready to rescue them from whatever was going after them, Azuki felt that person was a 'good guy'. She wasn't concerned with where they are or anything of that sort at all. She was just concentrated on staying alive.

"Silly horsie!" Lily rubbed her cheeks onto Azuki's head and laughed menacingly. "I'll end you before any of those dumb mangas end."

"Here!" The boy showed them towards a crack between houses, big enough for a few people to fit inside. He helped Lily off Azuki's back and guided her to go in the crack. He did the same with Azuki and by the time the two were hidden safely, the mob stopped in front of the boy.

"You! Mai's boyfriend, have you seen two blondes?" A man stepped forward and asked.

Mai's boyfriend..... The boy sweated. "Yeah, I did. They went into that direction." He pointed somewhere random. "Why are you looking for them―oh, okay, bye." The mob left before he could even finish talking.

After a few minutes, he looked into the crack. "It's safe now."

"R-Really?!" Azuki's eyes filled up with tears. She was so grateful for this stranger that came out of nowhere and saved the two(?), three(?) of them that she wanted to give him a hug, but that would be a little rude wouldn't it. "Thank you so much mister!!! You saved our lives!!!" She cried, snot dripping down her nose as she did.

She then quickly hid behind him so that there would be a lesser chance (hopefully) that Lily wouldn't try to cut her down into tiny pieces. "What can we do to ever repay you?!"

"Horsie, come baaack!" Lily cried out and tripped again.

The boy stared at Lily, something overcame him and he picked the loli up and swung her in the sky like they were playing airplane.

"Wahh! I'm eighteen, you can't play with me like I'm some child!"

"Eighteen???" The boy peered at Loli― Lily in disbelief. He put her down and looked back towards Azuki. "Don't worry about it... It was just a crazy sight to see. Why would anyone want to chase two poor girls and scare the living daylights out of them? I just don't get it..."

"Ruku." A girl appeared out of nowhere, her white hair shining in the light of the sun. "What are you doing with them!? If the locals see you hiding them, they won't be nice to you anymore, even if you are my friend."

"Frick, don't do that, Mai. Almost gave me a heart attack." The boy called, Ruku, held his chest and breathed in deeply. "Before... you said something about them... playing a cursed game?"

"No, they're playing the Kursed Game. All capitals, starts with a K." Mai looked over to Lily and Azuki.

"That sounds kind of ridiculous..." Ruku blinked his eyes and outstretched his arms to shield the two girls from Mai.

"Kursed game?" Lily let the words roll off her tongue, vaguely remembering to agree to play something.

"Wait. Don't tell me, you guys actually played without knowing what you got yourselves into!? Seriously?" Mai's mouth gap opened.

"Yeah?" Azuki tilted her head as if she was the one who was confused by what Mai said. This wouldn't be the first time she dove into something without knowing the full details. "I'm here to help my friend find his brother! But now..." She pouted, unconsciously revealing her whole purpose for being here to total strangers. "I can't find either of them..."

"That's your reason for playing!?" Mai looked horrified, pushing Ruku out of the way with amazing strength and shook Azuki like crazy. "Then what are you going to do about your wish?"

"Wish?" Lily repeated.

"You don't even know that?? Eiyahhh!" Mai fell to her knees and prayed to the gods for their sakes. "Uh..." Mai suddenly got back up on her legs with a panicked face. She pushed both girls to the ground and suddenly looked to her left side.

"Mai? What are you doing, no one's there..." But as soon as Ruku said that, the huge mob returned in the spot where Mai was looking at.

"I heard some voices coming from that direction!" Someone called out, and soon they stood face-to-face with the group.

"...I captured them for you." Mai told everyone in a cheerful voice and feigned a smile.

"Good job!" They all crowded around her and lifted her in the air.

"...Mai?" Ruku was shocked.

Mai looked back to Ruku with a troubled face. Her face was piteous towards Azuki and Lily.

Why was she pretending?


The locals had tied Lily and Azuki with rope and guided them towards the edge of the floating island. They poked Azuki's back with a stick. "You either jump or we'll push you down ourselves."

Lily peeked over the edge, her face blue. She couldn't see the bottom at all. Just many thick, crimson clouds.

"No, no, please don't do this to us!!!" Azuki cried, pleading for her life. She shook her head feverishly, hoping her words would get to the mob. "We aren't here to hurt anyone--" She paused. That wasn't true, at least not for the person beside her, but she decided to cast that one fact aside. "We just want to find our friends!!! ONE PIECE HASN'T ENDED YET, I STILL NEED TO SEE THE ENDING FIRST AT LEAST!!!!!!"

Azuki gulped at the sight before her. She couldn't even imagine how deep that drop is. The thought made her nauseous. She felt sick and wanted to puke, but she was too scared to do so.

Is this how it ends...? She replayed the events of her life. She made her first best friend... who died after a year. But she made many other friends in return, and she got into a good college despite not having a life goal. She had a kinda and caring older brother and an admirable older sister who would give up the world for her. Heck, she even got her first kiss, even if the experience was kinda............... so she lived a good life, right?

"NO I DIDN'T, I DIDN'T SEE THE END OF ONE PIECE YET." If Azuki was ever a ghost, she was pretty sure that would be her lingering connection.

"We don't accept Kursed players here." One of the ladies from the mob had a look of disdain. "They only cause trouble for us, our ancestors learned that the hard way. We survived peacefully up here by abiding by certain rules. And an important one is to make sure that no one playing that game can stay up here." Her eyes wondered to Mai though, her eyes only showed kindness for her, but when she looked back towards Azuki and Lily, her face twisted with hatred.

"You can't do this!" Ruku was struggling, trying to break free from the local's grasp. They held him back because he was protesting too hard. "In the end, aren't we all humans!? We shouldn't do this to one another!"

"People playing the Kursed Game aren't humans anymore!" The woman snapped, but covered her lips and gave a sorry look to Mai.

Mai put her hands over her arms and didn't say a thing.

"UGh! Just leave already!" She grabbed the stick and pushed Azuki and Lily off the edge, sending them to their certain doom.

"Haku-chaaaaaaaaaan!" Lily cried out.

"No!" Ruku broke free and dived down after them. He was able to wrap his hands around them as they fell, but now what. He wasn't thinking. The wind was smacking him hard in the face and making it hard for him to talk, so he projected his voice as loud as he could. "Beforeeee we dieeee, what's your nameeeeees?"

"RUKU-SAN!!!!!!!" Azuki was completely surprised to find that someone came after them. She was touched, and she thought she was saved. But from the words that fell from his mouth, she realized she wasn't. This would be the end. She maneuvered herself so that when they fell, at least she would fall first. At least with that, she hoped to protect the two and allowed them to live for her.

"AZUKI MURAKAMI!" Azuki said as loud as her throat allowed her to. She gave a bright and beautiful smile despite knowing she would die. Despite how scared she was. "If you make it out alive... Tell Nura Kiiro I'm sorry." She addressed this to both Lily and Ruku. "He would probably be angry that I died so easily after all." She laughed.

"Could it be you two have thing!?" Lily shouted excitedly. "This makes you my onee-sama!" She tried to hug Azuki mid-air, much to Ruku's annoyance because he was holding on to the both of them.

"You're an idiot."

"MAI!?" It was now Ruku's turn to be surprised. "What, why..."

"You are the biggest idiot I have ever met! But that makes me the second biggest idiot! It took me years to get up there, just for me fall back down so easily? Aha." Mai laughed bitterly. "The things I do for a friend, huh?"

"Since you two are players..." She looked at Lily and Azuki. "You two won't die from this, but it'll hurt like hell, so I recommend holding onto me."

The Kursed Centre

Nura couldn't comprehend what just happened. He went from falling thousands of feet off the air to somehow sitting in a wooden chair as the weird ghost girl stuffed cake in his mouth. "What the hell just happened!?" He spat out, having no time to admire the beautifully decorated cake.

He was in a huge lounge and there was a buffet table... and a luxury couch. And other people with weird number tattoos passing by. Talking about that... He noticed an 04 tattoo engraved into his wrist. "Did I get this that time I got drunk with Natsu-kun???"

Azuki tilted her head. "Nura-san and I have a thing? What thing? Glasses? I'm the only glasses-wearing one here." Azuki didn't understand Lily's statement at all.

Zukquisha groaned. She had to deal with Azuki's dunce little brain for 3 years and the amount of people who would point them out was ridiculous. She really, really just wanted to tell Azuki, but something like this only happened once in a lifetime, so she kept her mouth shut. Besides, she'd rather watch through Azuki's eyes than be actively involved. It made her unbiased, she could analyze things more easy.

Now it was Zukquisha Azuki was confused at. She guessed falling off a cliff must be making it harder for her to understand people.

Her eyes lit up with hope upon seeing Mai though. She really thought she was a goner at this point, she was already planning on asking God how One Piece ended first thing when she lands in Heaven. Her nose started running again and she clinged onto Mai. "You came to save us!!!!" She cried. She was really touched by these two people. They barely knew her and Lily and here they were, falling off a cliff with her. Friendship sure was amazing.

WHOOOOOOOSH.

"What was that sound!?" Nura got way too comfortable in his seat, even drinking chamomile tea served up by Hime. He ran out along with the other players and totally ignored the wreckage of the world. All he saw was Azuki.

Mai had landed on one knee and fist pumped to the ground. Her strength had made a huge dent in the ground. Its radius stretching out as far as the entrance. Ruku was hanging over Mai's shoulder, and Lily on his shoulder, and Azuki on Lily's.

"I'm a sandwich!" Lily managed to yell out from being squished in between the two. "Off, off please!"

"Stupid!" Nura yelled out, his face was filled with worry. He pulled Azuki off and hugged her. "I thought we were a team, where did you go?" He whispered as he rested his face on her head.

"Uwahhhh...." Azuki mumbled, her eyes were swirls. It took her a minute to answer Nura, she was still adjusting from actually standing on solid ground and not free-falling.

When she did, she noticed something weird. Nura himself was warm. It was a different warmth than hugging her brother or her sister or even Hatsu. It was a calming, soothing type of warmth that made her feel protected and safe, but it also made her feel all warm inside too. It was that strange feeling she had when she and Nura were back at Dawn Academy and again at the final showdown. She liked this feeling.

She hugged him back too, feeling herself calming from the adrenaline rush of falling off a cliff already. "I was going to say the same thing! She frowned. "I was looking for you and this mob came in and chased us and--" She stopped mid sentence. She didn't feel sick while falling because it was like the air was pushing against her throat and forcing the upchuck down. Now that she was on solid ground and her brain was still dizzy from everything that happened, she felt it come right back up her throat again.

She pushed Nura away and ran to the nearest corner to puke.
