Gintoki thrusts his palm foward to push the steel pieces into Izo's hip wounds , he takes Lake Toya and quickly smacks Izo's hip to push the pieces further in . He then leg sweeps Izo's right foot

*Gin then jumps back and bends one of his knees down *

"GORILLA, YOUR TURN !!! "

*After Gin's attack, Kondo-san steps into the fray once more*

"Got it!"

*Kondo charges the momentarily stunned Izo. He slashes across his chest from right to left causing a deep gash*

"Take that you bastard!"

*Kondo then prepares to slash back across in the opposite direction*

*Izo takes heavy damage from both Gin's and Kondo's attacks*

"GARRRRRHHHHHH!!!!!"

*Izo still raging mad, he cannot think straight. The pain does not bother him at all. He sees Kondo prepare to strike again and stands up ready to land a punch on Kondo. Instead of backing away, Kondo continues his attack even though it will not hit first...Kondo smirks at him... Suddenly, Izo feels something...*

"HUH?!"

*Kagura had built up enough momentum in a run behind Izo*

"Hehe!"

*Kagura was able to grab Izo's arm and momentarily stop him from swinging it towards Kondo*

"Hit him hard-aru!!!"

*Kondo continued his slash*

*Kondo swung his katana in the opposite direction from the previous strike*

"HYAAAHH!!!!"

*He was able to land another diagonal slash on Izo. As his strike ended, both he and Kagura jumped out of the way*

"NOW! YOROZUYA!!"

*He called out to Gin to deliver another blow to the wounded enemy*

Gintoki uses the momentum from his bent knees to charge and ram Lake Toya into Izo's chest, he knows it won't do much physical damage, but the force should be enough to push Izo into the fire. After the ram, Gintoki takes two steel pieces and thrown one at each of Izo's eyes.

"ALL RIGHT YOU TWO GO FOR IT ! "

*He is sent flying back by Gintoki's attack. All he can think about is how much of a failure he is at the moment*

("Sonna bakana!... Bakana!...BAKANA!!! How can I, LORD IZO, lose to them... I wont... I won't lose!... I WON'T")

*As he reignites his determination, he prepares to once again fight back, but then he sees the Yato and the Shinsengumi Commander come at him*

"No... No!.... NO!!!"

*Kondo and Kagura nod at each other. They both pounce on Izo. They each grab one of the steel pieces Gin threw their way and ram them into Izo. He manages to block with his hands, but he ends up receiving cuts and the pieces carve his forearms instead*

"This is for our friends-aru!!!"

*Kagura puts all of her remaining power into a last blow to Izo's gut*

*Izo sees the intended attacks as they come at him. It feels though as time stands still as all he can do is watch as his enemies prepare to strike him down*

("Is this really it? Helpless once more?")

*A picture of a young boy standing over his family's dead bodies flash into Izo's mind*

("I-I couldn't change anything in the end")

*Izo feels helpless for once. It has been a long time since he felt this way. He sees his enemies attacks inch ever closer. He cannot move his arms since they are being held in place with the steel shards in his enemies hands. The steel pieces stuck in his forearms as his enemies press on them to keep him from retaliating. They both attack using their free arms*

("I never thought I would lose... not here")

*He pictures his comrades*

("I guess I wasn't as great as you made me out to be...")

*He pictures the girl....Mizuki*

("Almost... I needed more time... your power could have set us free...")

*Time comes back up to regular speed now. Kondo lands a slash on Izo's forehead, cutting it deep, scratching his thick skull. The Yato landed a tremendous blow in his stomach. Enough so that Izo coughs up blood*

"Tch... damn it..."

*Izo falls back now. Beaten down and bruised all he can do is glare at his enemies as they stand above him. They overcame all odds and defeated him*

The Altered Mirror

Gintoki walks up and gazes at Izo....the man who has given him and his friends a hard time.....yet even after the bout is over....Gintoki doesn't feel any particular victory......Izo's eyes......they are of regret.....Gintoki has seen those eyes.....before. The eyes of someone who has failed to protect what is dear to him........Gintoki was looking at the altered mirror ..the mirror that showed him what he himself could have been if he let that very failure consume his chosen path.



It won't be long before the various steel pieces melt and destroy Izo's organs....it won't be long till his fire gets extinguished.

Gin , waits wordlessly for Izo's last words, .....the least he could do to the man that he could have been...to the man at the other side of the altered mirror.

*He looks up at the samurai and gives an unexpected smile*

"Well.... you won"

*If he learned one thing from his countless battles, it's how to gauge someone's character. Izo could tell what kind of man the samurai was the moment they began fighting. He looks up at the holes in the ceiling of his falling ship*

"It will be dawn soon..."

*Izo turns his gaze slightly to the girl still cowering in the corner with the young boy in glasses*

"Ha and to think that pathetic girl was our key to freedom. Freedom from our greatest enemy...the sun itself"

*Turns his attention back to Gin*

"Like I mentioned before, her powers is like ours. For decades, our kind sought a way.... a way to finally step out of he shadows and step into the light. It turns out, coming into contact with a pregnant woman many years ago was our best bet.... An accident turned into a blessing. As her name describes, she is a new hope..... A new hope for us"

*He looks straight into the samurai's eyes*

"Tell me samurai, what is it you fought for tonight?"

"...Simple really . For a friend, a friend who carries our sins as we carry hers. A friend who we will receive blessings from as we give her blessings. A friend who will protect us as we protect her. Above all we protecting that person simply because she is a friend. "

*Gin looks back at Izo with remorse , * ..." A friend who you didn't need to place misfortune on to carry your sins ."

*Izo looks back at Gin with killing intent in his eyes*

"Seems you are nothing but an idealist. You seem like a man who fought for a greater purpose once. You think we didn't try to move past this? You think we happily chose this path?!"

*Izo slowly gets up and faces Gin at eye level. The other two prepared themselves, but the samurai just stood still as he was faced against Izo*

"History is written by the victor. Good and bad is only a perspective. Have you never stopped and thought about those whom you've struck down in the past? Did you never consider the reason why they took up arms?"

*Limping and bleeding, Izo gets up in Gin's face*

"Would you not have done the same for those precious to you? Or are you too self-righteous for that Sakata Gintoki?"

Gin knows that Izo did all in his power to protect what is close to him . Gintoki knows that there is no black and white in this world......Gintoki too was simply protecting what was close to him... It was unfortunate , but the Rieki happened to be in the way of what he wanted to protect . *Gin looks Izo straight in the eye *

"I don't know what you needed to protect Izo. ...I don't ...perhaps I would have done the same......however as you needed to protect your people from an arbitrary misfortune placed upon them . , I vowed to protect Mizuki from the arbitary misfortune placed on her. I know Izo ....that nothing in this world is black and white......my sword can't change the world, but I'll carry her burden ...as you carried your people's burdens. It is unfortunate Izo , but today were simply on the opposites of history. There is nothing ....nothing glorious about battle. ........we both just did what we had to do....

However tell me something Izo.....:

If you needed Mizuki to help you face the sun ....then why did you take the sun from her ? ...Why do to her , that was done to your people ? ....Why not let her turn your misfortunes into blessings ...instead of soley giving her your misfortunes ? What exactly happened ? " ...

Gintoki knows that its hard .....to move on from ....tragic losses. Gintoki , might have treaded on Izo's path .....he too might have treaded on that man's path. If he hadn't found ....new burdens to carry ...he too might have allowed his own misery consume him .Couldn't Izo have carried Mizuki's burden as well ..as she carried his to move on ?
