"Is he okay?" Ruku muttered under his breath, noticing the the short moment when Ethan looked like he was in pain.

"Hmm?" Nura wanted to say he did notice, but shrugged it off.

"Do you know where Haku-chan is?" Lily zoomed in, not really caring about anything else, or about what everyone was discussing. She didn't even care about Ethan or the game, she just wanted her hubby back. "Blonde hair like horsie and I, but sexy amber eyes... mmm." She fantasized again.

"Uh..." Nura could feel the rush of murderous intent sky rocket. "M...ai?" He looked to her, a bit fuzzy with names. "Could you tone down the intimidation, I think we're good here."

"That isn't me." Mai looked surprised, she had let that all go already when Azuki began talking.

They all turned back and felt movement underneath them, the shaking was massive and the already cracked ground, cracked even more.

"Oooh." Mai nodded to herself, already ditching everyone and running. "I wouldn't want to stay there if I were youuuu!" She screamed out, already half a mile away.

Nura could feel the presence of something that just wanted to eat. "No time to make friends yet!" Nura looked at Azuki, certain she could take care of herself. "RUN!" He took Lily and Ruku by the hand instead and ran in the direction Mai was running in.

Green acid sprayed up from the ground like a geyser and melted everything in its way. Under the acid there were several giant white blades. No. They weren't blades. They were huge teeth. And those teeth... belonged to a 20 ft, giant, mutated worm with 10 black dots for eyes. It spat out the remains of someone it had eaten in front of Azuki's legs. It was hungry and it wanted more.

Ethan didn't recognize who Lily was describing at all. He was taken aback by her looks though. She had blond hair and blue eyes too, but for some reason, Ethan didn't find them as beautiful. As beautiful as Azuki. He was about to stutter out a reply to her, but was glad he wouldn't need to after the ground started shaking underneath him.

Azuki was too busy trying to balance her footing that she didn't see the giant worm emerging from the ground. Once she noticed the remains in front of her feet, her face went pale and started to scream really loudly. To her surprise, she didn't hear her just scream, but Ethan was screaming too, and his pitched almost matched hers while screaming.

She scattered to her legs, grabbed Ethan's hand and bolted right after Mai and the others. "W-WHAT IS THAT?!?!?!"


"It's a worm!" Tsutomu laughed as he ran right beside the two. "A pretty big one too! You don't see those things back at home!"

Ethan was appalled by Tsutomu's happy-go-lucky attitude, even at a situation where he could get eaten any second. "H-H-How could you act so calm in a situation like this?!"

That was the first time Ethan had spoke to anyone in the group. A goofy grin slowly spread across her face. "You spoke to us!!!" She exclaimed, felling more happy that Ethan was becoming closer to everyone right now than she was scared of that worm.

"How long do we keep running until it gives up!?" Nura asked both Mai and Ethan, since they were natives of this world.

"If we're lucky enough... We can eat it for lunch!" Mai nodded, throwing a fist in her palm as if she had just got a brilliant idea.

"THAT DIDN'T ANSWER MY QUESTIOON!" Nura yelled out. He was feeling slowed down by the weight of Ruku and Lily, but he wasn't mean enough to let go.

"It's easier if we have a weapon..." Mai talked casually, having no problem running at the rate they were going in. "That way we can cut off its head. That's basically the only way we can stop it. I mean I can stun it for a bit, but you guys gotta do something about it." And just as she said that, Mai super jumped onto the back of the mutant worm and punched it in the head. The sound of her punch resonated loudly through the area.

"I don't have any weapons..." Ruku began saying. He looked to Lily. "You?" He only asked her because yanderes looked like they carried weapons with them everywhere.

"Nuh-uh. Forgot my ax." Lily told him in a sad voice. Her vision began getting a little shaky... "I don't feel so well..."

Nura remembered what Lettie had said about them getting sick earlier. His body felt a bit strained, but he didn't look as pale as Lily. In fact... he felt more... powerful? But what use was his powers in a situation like this!? He wanted to ask Tsutomu about this later too, since he looked completely fine. Even Mai was looking a bit pale.

"Glasses, can use your water manipulation to slice its head off like a blade?" Nura asked as he was frantically searching for any type of liquid in sight.

Ethan watched in envy as Mai went up to the worm and punched it. He felt that. And he knew he would never be as strong as her. He was a weakling.

His eyes lowered to the floor as depressing thoughts started to enter his mind again. He squeezed his eyes shut and tried to shake them away. Just when his mind had finally moved to something else, those thoughts came back to him like a boomerang.

He concentrated on the hand that held his. It was the first time he has ever held a girl's hand before. They were small, but smooth, soft, and a little warm. They were strong hands. Hands that kept him planted on the ground and kept him from being lost in his thoughts.

He turned to her. The way she smiled at him, her laugh. If he ever felt the sun, he was sure it would feel just like her. She was absolutely beautiful.


"Uhhhhh...." Azuki said, looking for some sort of water source too and completely forgetting there's probably some water in her bag for her to use. As she looked around, she was unconsciously moving her free had along with it. The harder she concentrated on looking, the more water started to appear on her fingertips and when she finally looked caught herself creating water on her own she squealed in glee.

"This never happened to me before!!!!" She exclaimed, not questioning why she could do it. She stopped running and turned around towards the worm, despite Ethan beginning to whimper from the sudden halt. In one swift move, she gave the worm's head a clean slice.

"!!!!!" She started to wave her hands around in celebration, making water fall all over the place. "I'M A WATERBENDER!!!!!!" She cheered.


"Uwahh~ That was pretty cool, Azuki-chan!" Tsutomu complimented while clapping.

Mai jumped off the worm and realized something crawling behind. Tiny, little worm like things. "Ah, the cycle of life. Killed or be killed." She stepped on them, looking a bit fatigue.

Ruku didn't protest he knew if those things were kept alive, they would end up becoming a huge mutant man-eating worm like its mother.

Nura was surprised. Azuki had just conjured up her own water. How did that happen? "Good job, but just how...?" Nura was trying to search for an answer, but his body was hurting for some reason.

"I feel really, really bad." Lily emphasized on the reallys. She fell over and looked up to the sky. Ah, it was such an ugly view. She couldn't even see the sky. "Horsie-onee-sama, carry meee!" She whined as she rolled over in the dirt.

"Newcomers often feel sore if they already have powers or if they don't they get really sick." Mai pointed out, stretching because her joints ached. "It's because the air in Sylvia is mixed with radioactive gases. It's not a rare thing for people to have powers. It's the opposite actually. If you don't have powers, you're an abnormality."

"Huh? Is that true?" Nura looked to Ethan and Tsutomu. "You guys have powers too?"

"Ehehe!!!" Azuki was running towards Nura, ready to get a high-five from him, but immediately started to feel the soreness and almost fell over. She would have went to Lily's side to help her, she was absolutely afraid she would chop her head off if she didn't, but was too busy being in pain to do so.

"Mhm!" Tsutomu agreed to Mai's statement but put a finger to his lips. "It's a ~secret~ though, wouldn't want to reveal everything or else we would have nothing left to talk about!" He turned to Ethan and smiled. "Ethan-kun knows what it is though!"

Ethan flinched. Azuki let go of his hand when she almost fell over and he started to miss that touch already. She was strong, much stronger than he was. He wished he had some of that strength right now.

Tsutomu saying that just confirmed that it was him who gave him that pain. He was dangerous and he needed to get away from his as quickly as possible, but he couldn't. He was put on the spot and his feet refused to move. He looked to the ground and nodded.


"Does that mean... I'm turning into Spiderman?!"

"I'm actually surprised we haven't see a teenage mutant ninja turtle." Nura crawled over to Azuki and tried to help her own, but ended up falling on his chin.

"Oh, we don't have a teenage ninja one, but we do..." Mai was going to say, but Nura told her with his eyes to stop speaking anymore. She laughed and complied. "This is the first time I felt this soreness though." Mai then added. "Ever since I left the ground, I've never been back since now."

"When did you leave?" Ruku questioned with his big curious eyes.

There he goes again. Mai sighed, feeling too lazy to answer any more questions.

"CARRY ME!" Lily rolled over to Nura and Azuki and jumped on both of them, inevitably creating 3 human pancakes.

I don't feel any strange though. Ruku thought to himself. Was there something wrong with him? He wanted to tell everyone at that moment... But then agreed with Tsutomu's logic about not being able to talk about anything anymore if they revealed too much.

"We're pretty far from the Kursed Centre right now... I say we head to Tsutomu-kun's place and then spend night then we throw Ethan here at Lettie and unlock everything." Nura suggested.

"I approve." Mai nodded.

"How can we even tell if it's night or day?" Ruku squinted at the the thick clouds above them.

((Ahh yes, the start of Tsutomu being a bad influence OTL))

"UGWAH." Azuki felt like she died from Lily's weight on her. Her boobs were getting so crushed right now. She cried. She wished she didn't have such big boobs.

"Gotcha~!" Tsutomu agreed to the idea. "It's not all that far, so don't worry~"

Ethan felt completely left out from the group. They all seemed like really close people already. He didn't belong with them. He didn't want to belong with them. Now that there wasn't any danger, he could run. Get away from the pain that would come, the responsibilities and expectations that he knew that would be implemented if he stayed. And he would run. But he had this feeling... this sickening feeling... that Tsutomu would make sure he stayed.

"Mmm~ Does it matter? If you're tired, go to sleep! If you're not, stay awake! You shouldn't allow something like the amount of sun to restrict you on those things~" Tsutomu said as he lead the way to his house.

That's completely right. Mai agreed with Tsutomu's statement. In this world, under the clouds, you couldn't rely on the sun. Night was whenever you chose it to be. But living like that gave you no sense of time. There were no longer any months, days, or weeks. People calculated age by saying how many springs passed. If 15 springs passed, you were 15, that was all to it. It was such a drawback that humanity had to take one step back after the continuous disasters. It was actually worse than the medieval times.

"Ethan...?" Ruku suddenly called out. "Where do you live? Is it near Tsutomu-kun's?" Ruku's curiosity was overflowing once again.

"Alright!" Nura forced himself up and manged to get Lily off him.

"Horsieeeeee carry mee!" Lily whined. "If you don't want to I'm going to assume you think I'm heavy? If I assume you think I'm heavy you're indirectly saying I'm too fat for Haku-chan. Are you saying I'm not good enough for him?" Her yandere switch suddenly turned on.

THAT THOUGHT PROCESS... The other 3 looked at her illogical thinking.

Ethan flinched at Ruku's sudden question. His eyes looked all over the place, hoping someone would go answer for him or something. But no one came. He started to sweat profusely all over again. What should he say back? Where did he live??? Oh crap, he just forgot where he lived.

He tried to take deep breathes, but they weren't working. How could he answer him? Could he just leave him hanging again? Would he be angry if he did? No, he would be angry. Anyone would be angry. He had to answer. But what would be the best answer for this question? Was this something he could just say yes or no to?

Anxiety was flooding Ethan's mind, making him more and more dizzy. He balled up his fists to keep him grounded, the pain keeping his head from lingering on thoughts he knew wouldn't stop coming.

"No...Not near here." He managed to say. It came out hoarse and too soft for Ruku to hear, but he knew he couldn't project himself any louder than that. He just hoped Ruku would just accept the answer and move on.


Azuki scrambled on her feet and carried Lily on her back. "Y-You're not heavy at all, I-I'll be fine!!!" Azuki reassured in a forced, wavering tone. "I REALLY MEAN IT PLEASE DON'T KILL ME!!!"

"Hmm~ So you're here to save this 'Haku-chan'? Aww~ Isn't that so cute~" Tsutomu commented as he lead the way.

"Me and Nura-san too!" Azuki added.

"Uwah! Three people? Ehhh, he must be one popular guy! I'm jealous~"

Ruku repeated the question again. He was quite the curious boy. "Ethan? Where do you live? Is it near Tsutomu-kun's? Can you hear me? Hello? Ethan?" He strolled closer to Ethan, his eyes were bulging with wonder and yearning for knowledge. He would continue pushing on if he had to. He wouldn't accept silence or mumbles as an answer. Ignoring him would also make him even more annoying. Ruku was the epitome of a child who wanted the attention of his mother.

"Good horsie <3" Lily stroked Lily's head and purred. "Just listen to good ol' Lily and everything will just be fine!" She then turned her direction towards Tsutomu. "OF COURSE!! I would do anything for hubby!"

"Save? That kid can take of himself no doubt." Nura shuddered at the thought. Haku didn't have any special organization training or powers, but even without those he was just as strong as Nura. Maybe even stronger? "We came searching for him and for some answers. We thought he just disappeared out of nowhere! But he ends up disappearing to another world?"

"You look like quite the popular guy actually, Tsutomu." Mai added on to the conversation. "Your personality and your looks... you must be well liked back where you guys came from!"

Ethan scooted farther and farther away from Ruku so that there would be more space in between them. "N-No, not n-n-near he-here." He tried to make his voice louder but in its expense, made his voice even more shakier. He felt himself trying to make himself smaller and smaller.

He didn't like it when people would probe him with questions like this. Make him talk. Try to get to know him. Maybe even use that information later in the future against him. He wasn't all that special anyway. He was the exact opposite of special. He was plain. With a plain personality and character. He hoped Ruku would get bored of him quickly after finding out just how dull of a person he was.


Azuki was visibly trembling in fear but obediently allowed Lily to stroke her head.

"Yup! I'd say I'm pretty popular too, I like moving around a lot so I meet all sorts of people, plus word and rumors spread around pretty fast~" Tsutomu explained, not stating whether it was a good thing or not that happened.

"As or looks? Of course I gotta stay handsome for my girlfriend. Being well liked? Quite the contrary! But my friends can't do anything without me, it's a love-hate relationship~ <3 "

"Oooh!" Ruku could finally hear Ethan. "Then where do you live?" He continued asking. With each answer he would throw another question.

"Love-hate relationship..." Mai tried to imagine it. "But, wow, it must be nice to have a lot of friends. Doing all the labour work for weak Pudellian citizens meant I had no time to enjoy the comfort of someone else...

"Go faster! Go faster!" Lily was laughing so happily that it was clear that she was feeling much better now.

"How fast until her powers kick in?" Nura whispered.

"They won't be so evident until she's in danger or needs to use it..." Mai whispered back. "I'd rather she have a defensive ability or something because she looks dangerous already without any powers."

"She is." Nura remembered how she swung her ax at Azuki 3 years ago.

"How much further, blueberryy-kun?" Lily asked Tsutomu. "I have to feed onee-sama and give her lots of water! How else will she be a good, healthy horsie <3

Ethan was becoming more and more reluctant to talk. "I-I-In town... farther ahe-head..." He mumbled again.

Azuki did as she was told, crying as she did.

"Not much farther!" Tsutomu was leading the group to a small house that resembled more of a cottage than a house. There was even a sign that read 'Tsutomu Sakamoto' on the outside. He opened the door, to his house and inside was a very simplistic interior that only held the necessities of a house.

"Sorry if there isn't much! Scavenging and putting things together took enough time as it did~ Also people out there are scary! They could steal your things and all, you know?"

"What did you say??" Ruku smiled, his curiosity was peaking through the roof.

"You're annoying him, quit it, Ruku!" Mai shook her head and put her hands on her waist.

"Eh? I'm annoying you? I'm sorry." Ruku looked let down and slumped away.

Nura grabbed Lily and took her off Azuki. "Okay, that's enough mini-blondie, we're here, you can walk using your own two feet." Nura dropped her own the ground without any regards to how hard she would fall.

"Wah! This is pretty good for building it yourself! I'm impressed!" Mai wandered in, threw off her boots and collapsed on the bed.

"She stole the bed." Nura poked at her face. "Andd she's dead asleep."
