Opening: Make Some Noise~Back-On
Episode 1:Begining of the Journey
Runda, city of the seas. Runda is known for being the biggest city on the coast of all seas. Highest supplier of goods and having the greatest defense against pirates.
The streets of Runda were always busy with buisness. Traders selling their goods, merchants selling produce, traveling performers coming to earn some gold by showing off their talents of singing, dances, sword fights, fire breathing, and other talents that would attract many people.
Along the docks, fishermen catching their next meal or a good fish to sell. The beach's with few kids playing in the sand and out at sea, watch ships keeping a lookout for pirates.
"Lord, we should be arriving shortly. We shall reach Runda at sunset or earlier."
"Good. This would make one less army to go up against me."
A large room with two long tables on the sides, filled with the smartest and strongest men and women gathered for a meeting. A raised platform was at the end of the long room with a shorter table that had a man on one side and a women on the other. In the middle, was large figure. Legs bent back, a large round like bottom and a large round torso that seemed to have a point going down in the front. Long arms and skinny armor plated body that connected the torso and bottom. Addition to this, a large black, torn bottom cape and large hat on its head with the most feared symbol throughout the seven seas, the EEL skull and cross Sabers.
"Lord, shall we use our main forces, or your elites?"
"Main. I wish to see if the grand Runda city, can live up to it's name. Or perhaps, we should see if they can, survive a sneak attack, from the sand." A cracky voice spoke.
"Master, do you request our assistance?" A woman's voice spoke.
"No, you two will be needed, if there are any, major, problems."
"Come on Zen, put up a better fight."
"You know you're better at sword fighting than me Hanson."
"Stop your wimpering and act like a man Zen."
"Shut up Sin."
Zen was never good at sword fighting. However, Hanson was tought how to use a sword at the age of five and is now nineteen. Sin was also a good sword fighter but was trained to use a double sided blade. Sin had short cut blond hair and always wore chain mail on her right arm with asteel glove and shoulder plate with three steel horns pointing up. Now as for Zen, he was a better marksmen. Tought how to use guns, and mastered using a two pistols.
"Zen, if you want to be strong, then learn how to use a sword."
"What about you Hanson, you may know how to use a sword, but you suck at useing guns."
Hanson blushed. "Shut up! Sword can be more lethal than guns."
"But guns can attack from a distance."
"But swords don't run out of ammo."
"Swords can only attack up close!"
"Guns take time to reload!"
Hanson and Zen always fought with each other with their mouths instead of fists.
"Will you two shut up! God, your both giving me a headache." Sin sat down in the sand, holding her head. She fell back onto sand as she looked up the sky.
The two looked at Sin and Zen sighed. "Geez, catch ya guys later. I have better stuff to do." Zen walked off as he waved his hand bye.
Hanson sat down next to sin and looked out to the open sea. "He always has something better to do."
Sin sat up and wrapped her arms around her knees. "Well, he is in a wealthy family." Sin laughed a bit.
"Yea. But I'm shocked he hangs out with people like us."
"Well, there are those who are rich but find the poor peoples live to be more interesting and fun. For example, sword fights. He would have to dress in fancy clothing and wait till both are ready. With us, he can do what ever he wants. Cloths, he has to wear fancy ones, but he can wear what ever with us."
"Yea, I guess your right." Hanson laughed. "It seems like you know everything."
"Of course," Sin looked over ta him. "because I'm a girl. Girls are always smarter than men."
Hanson sighed and looked out at the sea. "Someday, I would leave this damn city, and live a better life. One with adventure, action, danger."
Sin giggled in his statement. "You have always said that since we were younger."
Hanson was quiet.
Sin leaned forward a bit to look at his face. "Hanson, you are old enough to make your own choices. You can leave when ever you want."
"I know, but, thinking about makes me remember my father, and the ship he commanded. The White Flame."
Sin looked out at sea. "You could forget that ship? It was a ship that was like a fortress on the sea."
"Yea, but, that beast. Destroyed the White Flame and killed my dad. Now my mother, is all I have left."
"Who said she's all you have?" Sin leaned against him. "We've known each other forever. Do I matter to you Hanson?"
Hanson blushed and looked away. "Um, of course you do."
Sin smiled. "I'm glad to hear that."
The two sat in the sand and watched as the sun slowly.
"What do you think of me?"
Hanson blushed and looked at her from the corner of his eye, but cought her clevage for a moment. "Um...Well...I think that."
The talk was broken by a large explosion out at sea. One of the lookout ships was blown apart and lit up that small part of the bay.
"It's the Black Heart!" A man cried out into the city from the watch tower.
Hanson and Sin got up to their feet and saw the fire.
"We need to get out of here. There's no way the city can stand against that thing." Hanson said looking at that black shape out in the distance, it being the Black Heart.
"Hahahahaha! Fire! Keeping firing! Every cannon should be ready to fire!" A high pitch toned man cried out.
"Lord, are you gonna summon them?"
"Of course. I love watching people scream in terror as my little pets attack." The beasts eyes glowed red as he summoned his minions of sand.
"We need to get out of here." Hanson said as he stopped in the streets.
Back at the beach, the sands shifted and started to rise up into golems of running sand. The sand split open at the head revealing a large red eyes. Many of these sand golem's rose up and began to attack people.
More and more ships were blown apart and soon few than dozens of smaller ships came to the docks. Men dressed in bits of damaged armor stormed the beach and soon the coastal section of the city.
Buildings were lit up and burned down to the ground.
Hanson and Sin ran with the crowds of people and left for the exit.
Men were slain, women captured and became slaves, children used as slaves as well. Rares and valuables taken from homes, stores, and bodies. The city burned and the fire spread like a disease, ingulfing the city into a one huge blaze of fire and ash.
At the docks, the beast Razor Fang watched and smirked. "Loud the slaves and treasure. We are done here." Razor Fang turned around waving his cape, showing the EEL skull and cross Sabers, his mark.
Screams echoed through the night. Buildings fell to the ground and among the survivers, Hanson and Sin watched, as their home burned through the night.
The sun revealed a graveyard. Smoke filled the air. Bodies populated the streets. Blood painted the walls and streets.
"Do you think, Zen made it out." Sin asked.
"Hey!" A voice called out.
Hanson and Sin looked back to see Zen.
"Zen. Oh my god, what happened?" Sin was shocked to see him as he was.
His cloths torn from the neck down.
"I, I couldn't save them."
"Who?" Hanson asked.
"My...parents." Zen looked up. "They died last night. They were killed by those bastereds!" Zen broke into tears and tightend his fists.
Hanson looked down. "Zen, we all lost something close to us. My mother died as well."
"My father was on one of the look out ships."
The three were silent for a moment.
"Hanson." Zen said breaking the silence.
"You want to leave this city right?"
"Then, let's do it." Zen smirked as he looked at him. "We can't let that demon get away with this. He killed our families, our home, everything."
Hanson and Sin looked at Zen.
"We can avenge our family. Set sail, start a new life, gather a crew, who is willing to take down that demon, and bring justice to all who have died by the hands of that monster. So let's do this!" Zen Cried out.
Sin giggled. "He may be of a wealthy family, but he has the attitude of a low life."
"Master, is everything, okay?" A women asked
"No. I believe we forgot on thing."
"And what would that be?"
"We forgot to kill one other human. The son, of the man who almost killed me."
"Are you serious!?" Hanson cried out. "All we have is this stupied fishing boat!?"
"Oh come on Hanson. You have to say it's surprising to see at least one ship intact." Sin looked at the small yet intact boat.
This fishing boat was on the fare side of the beach which was out of range of the Black Heart.
"Well, do we have any food?" Hanson asked.
"We'll be fine. There's a small island not too far from here." Zen said as he grabbed hold of the boats front. "Now, help me push this thing."
Hanson sighed and grabbed hold of the boat. Sin did the same. The three started to push and managed to push it out into the water, but Sin jumped into it first as Hanson and Zen pushed it.
"Oh c'mon Sin!" Zen got a bit pissed from her doing that.
"Hey, I'm a lady, and you shouldn't except me to push such a big thing." Sin grinned as she took a seat in the boat.
Hanson and Zen kept pushing until it was out in the water and finally jumped in.
"Well, who's gonna row?" Sin asked.
"Guess I will. But not for long, since there's a sail here. I'll row out a bit till we catch some wind." Hanson said sitting down and grabbing the ores. Setting them and began to row.
"We should reach the island by sun down, if we're lucky." Zen said looking at the ocean
"Hopefully we'll get there faster." Sin added.
Hanson began to row and make the boat start on its journey to the island that they hoped would help them out on their quest.
"Okay, okay, we'll give you another week. But please, stop the violence." A man fell to knees and begged.
Before stood a man with a black bandana, a gotte, and heavy duty looking clothing, possible that of a high ranking bandit.
"Next week? Ha, who said I was even paying your crappy boss back?" The bandit sat back down and put his jagged sword back into its sheeth.
The begging man was shacking and got up and ran off, leaving the men who followed him behind. But they were dead anyway.
There was silence in the tavern but it went back to being active and loud as always.
A women came up to the mans table with a large bottle. "Um, here's your...Drink." The girl saw what he did and was bit scared to be next to him.
The bandit smirked as he looked at the young woman's body. "Oh c'mon, don't be shy." The bandit reached for her arm and held it. "Now, there's no need to be afraid around me. If you know who I am, then you would know I don't warm women. You know who I am?"
The young women shook her head a little.
"Well then, be honored to be in the presence of the famed, Ice."
At the stools, a man heard his name and turned around. "Ice!" The man yeild as he pulled out a gun and pulled the trigger, shooting him but Ice dodged it.
Getting up, he drew his sword and showed the sword was thick, and had when drawn out, the sword has layers of pointed up ice shards. Slashing the wind, Ice used this swords supernatural like powers and sent out three daggers of ice and pierced the man in the heart and the stomach.
Blood drooling from his wounds, the man dropped his gun and fell to the ground, but was ignored by everyone.
Ice put his sword back and sat back down. "Now then were was I." Ice looked up at the women but saw she was gone, but the large bottle was on the table. "Damn broad."
"I see it. We're almost there Hanson. Hanson?" Sin looked out at the island and then to Hanson, she saw that Hanson was tired and out of energy.
"What's wrong with him?" Zen asked.
"Hey, won't you be tired if you rowed all this way and you didn't catch any gusts at all?" Sin sighed thinking Zen was a complete idiot.
Sin looked at Hanson for a moment and smirked. "Watch this." Sin whispered to Zen. Sin slowly wrapped her arms around Hanson and pressed herself against his back. "Hey Hanson." Sin whispered in his ear with a tempting voice. "If you get us there in the next few minutes," Sin's mouth got closer and closer to Hanson's ear and her warm breath blew against his neck. "I'll give something special, that only a women...Can give you." Sin smirked.
Hanson was fully red and from that instant he was full of energy. "Right away Sin!" Hanson cried as he began to row with all his energy and making the boat move faster.
Sin sat back down and giggled a bit.
"Geez Sin. You're bad." Zen grinned.
"Don't expect me to do that to you Zen" Sin crossed her arms.
Zen felt sad, and depressed from rejection.
After a quick moment, Hanson used the rest of his strength and got them to the island.
"Man, that was fast Hanson...Hanson?" Sin got off the boat and looked back at Hanson, seeing him asleep.
"Well, thanks to you, he is asleep and out of fuel." Zen laughed as he got out of the boat.
"Hmf, it's thanks to me that we got here faster." Sin grinned. Buffing up her chest as if she was a victorious warrior.
Zen looked around and then up at the hill, seeing a large tavern. "Hey, I know this place. I heard this is where some of the badest bandits and theives."
"Oh really. Sounds fun." Sin grinned as she started to head for a large and long staircase that took them to the tavern.
A man was thrown into the air and crashed down onto a table with people around it.
Ice had men scattered around him with wounds or dead. "Alright, who else wants to take me on? Well!? What!? Are all of you nothing but a bunch of f****** weak, wanna bees!? Well!?"
Earlier, more men tried to take out Ice, but of course failed.
Fueled with rage and booze, Ice grew more impatient. "Ever since that damn Fang guy came along, everyone has become weak and pathetic. Is there anyone, who still has a fighting spirit? Well!?"
The people around were quiet, and his speech got to them. A lot of them felt weak from him talking and saying something that was completly true.
"God, Im sure teenagers these days have a better spirit than any grown man here." Ice felt disgusted around all of these weak wanna be fighters.
The tavern door opened up. Zen and Sin walked in and everyone turned their attention them.
Zen and Sin felt, confused and felt like they came in at a bad time.
Ice rose his sword to point at the two. "You two. Are you weak? Do you fear the one named Razor Fang?"
Zen and Sin doddled and answered. "Um, no."
Soon, people mumbled.
"Why? Why do you not fear him?" Ice lowered his ice blade.
"Well, would you fear the one that killed your family and destroyed your home? No, you would hate them, want revenge." Sin said as she glared at Ice.
Ice smirked and started to laugh. "Now this, is an example of a fighters spirit. Girl, what is your name?"
"Sin, Sin Trisen."
"Well, Sin Trisen, to see if you truley mean what you said. I challenge you, to a duel!" Ice smirked as he rose his sword once again, pointing it at Sin.
Episode 3:Dual of Spirit
A crowd gathered as Sin and Ice faced each other.
"You don't seem to be much of a bandit to me, what are you exactly?" Sin asked crossing her arms.
"I am from a bandit clan, but departured and became a hunter. People will, and always see me as a bandit." Ice drew his sword and revealed a long katana made of Ice. "Since my sword has two stages, I'll go easy and use it's first stage." Ice gripped his sword.
Sin smirked and reached to the back of her waist, drawing two blades. "Well, be prepared to use your second stage, because I'm stronger than I look." Sin put her arms out and then over her head. The ends of the swords collided and connected into her double bladed sword. Twirling it around, Sin got into her stance.
"Ah, a dual blade, but are you skilled enough to really use it?" Ice grinned.
Zen stood in the crowd and looked at Sin. The sun going down and the ocean next to Ice and Sin. From a certain angle, you could see the sun set between Sin and Ice.
The two glaired at each other. From a simple shift of each others foot, they lundged for each other and slashed their blades, begining with the two in a stand off, pressing against their blades to force the other back.
Sin turned one hand and smirked. She used the other end to attack him from the side, but Ice monuvered himself to dodge the attack and gain distance between her and him.
"Very good, a basic move that all dual blade users should know." Ice grinned as she gripped his sword more and went for another attack.
Sun started to spin her blades as if making a shield. A slight grin was on her face as if she had a trick up her sleeve.
Ice went for the attack and was trying to do a piercing like jab. Sin moved her rotating blades and smacked his blade aside and did an upper cut with her blade, slashing Ice's chest.
Ice stepped back looking at his chest. "I guess you can use that weapon then. But are you good enough to beat me at when my blade is at its second stage?" Ice smirked and slashed the wind with great force and his blade transformed into thick layers of ice pointing upward. The blade was thicker and larger now due to the transformation.
"Try to avoid this." Ice yeiled as he slashed the wind sending out multiple daggers of sharp ice.
Sin started spinning her blades again to use as a shield now. The front of the dagger's shattered when they struck her spinning shield and fell to the ground. Sin stopped and went into a ready stance.
The two exchanged glares. "I am impressed, but only a little. Because you were able to stop my daggers with your weapon, but now try to avoid this." Ice grinned greatly as he rose his sword and pierced the ground below. As the sword went into the ground half way, large and sharp pillars of ice began to burst from the ground, heading for Sin at a great speed.
"Shit." Sin was caught off gaurd from this attack and quickly leaped to the side, rolling and getting back onto her feet and charged for Ice as his sword remained in the ground.
"Think it's that easy?" Ice said as a wall of ice blew out of the ground and formed a dome around Ice.
Sin was only able to slash the ice and leave a small scratch. "Coward! Get out of there!" Sin yeiled in anger.
There was silence. No reply from Ice.
"You asked for it." The thick ice began to melt slowly, but as it melted, a merage of small ice needles began to flew out of the melting ice and was only going to the side Sin was on.
No time for defense, Sin took the attack and was pierced with hundreds of small needles of cold ice. Her only defense, was covering her face.
The ice became water and and Ice rose from the melted Ice. He looked at Sin as she looked at him. Blood was slowly coming from Sin as she lost balance and collapsed, falling on her stomach and onto the wet and cold sand.
Ice smirked and withdrew his sword. "You were good, but not good enough kid."
The crowd was quiet as they looked at Sins lifeless body.
"She's not dead, just unconcious." Ice said as he walked up to her.
Zen was speachless. All he could say was he name quietly.
Back at the boat, Hanson finally woke up. Getting up and rubbing his head. Seeing no one near him but the crowd. "What the?" Hanson crawled out of the boat and ran to the crowd. Pushing his way through he wanted to see what was going on. He came to Zen and saw him just standing there.
"Zen? What's going on?" He asked as he looked at him and then to what he was looking at. Hanson froze and ran to Sin. "Sin!" Hanson fell to knees and picked her up. "Sin! Sin!" Hanson looked at her and then up at Ice with anger. "Bastered, what did you do!?"
"We had a friendly dual. I won, and she is only unconcious. No need to worry." Ice turned around and began to walk away.
Hanson laid Sin down and got up. "Stop."
Ice did as told and looked over his shoulder.
"I challenge you then. Ice."
Ice smirked. "So you know me?"
"Of course. I have always wanted to fight you, but now I want to kick you ass."
Ice started to laugh and grabbed his swords handle. "Very well, just for that, You die!" Ice drew is sword in it's second form and lunged for Hanson.
Hanson drew his sword and slashed at Ice's sword to block and bring the fight to a stand still.
Hanson was full of anger and wanted to beat Ice at all cost to show how weak he is. Hanson pushed Ice back and with a quick movement he stabbed the ground. Spots of sand puffed up and exploded a trail to Ice.
Ice started laughing with great excitment. "Now this is a fight!"
stabbed the sand and turned it into ice to prevent the explosion from getting to him. Only a radius of five feet became ice. But even that was no use. The explosion reached Ice and blew right through his shield.
Ice was thrown back a few feet and got right up. He charged for Hanson but Hanson focused on Ice's sword. When Ice slashed at Hanson, Hanson Slashed at Ice's sword with awsome power as his blade glowed white. With one strike, Hanson shattered Ice's blade.
Ice's eyes widened and stumbled back and dropped his broken sword and fell to his knees. "That...Power."
Hanson withdrew his blade and looked down at him. "You lose."
Ice looked at Hanson and for an instant, he saw Hanson's father. "So...You're the son."
"You are...The son...of, my...Captain."
"Well, I have to say this is a nice ship." Hanson, Sin and Zen looked around Ice's ship. A two floor ship that he piloted himself.
"You three are searching for Razor Fang, right?" Ice asked.
"Yeah, but so fare we have no idea were he is. And all we have is a fishing boat." Hanson replied.
"Don't worry, you can come with me. I have pledged to serve the Frown family when I became your fathers right hand man." Ice smiled as he opened a door showing a room. "You three can stay in here."
"What about you?" Hanson asked.
"Well, I have stay outside and and keep a watch out for the Black Heart. Because I have a feeling, that he is after you. Besides, your father did almost kill him."
Hanson sighed. "You're right."
"I could help ya out, two pairs of eyes are better than one pair." Zen laughed a bit.
Ice felt a little uneasy with Zen being outside with him.
"Don't do anything stupid Zen." Sin said.
"Geez, I still don't how you can walk and talk after what Ice did to you." Zen said.
"Oh come on, it was the number of stings I got at once that made me collapse."
"Well, it's dark out, get some sleep, we'll be setting off shortly." Ice left Hanson and Sin. Zen left also to look at the stars, since he wasn't seen them for so long, due to being stuck inside back at Runda.
A candle was already lite on a desk in the room. With a bed and three large barrels and four large crates. Barrels of beer, crates of food.
"Finally, a better ship. Shelter from the weather, and an alley." Hanson grinned as he sat on the bed and falling back laying down.
Sin sat next to him and looked down at him. "But still, you will need a bigger ship and a bigger crew to go up against the Black Heart and Razor Fang."
"C'mon, Ice counts as like, five guys with that sword of his. I still can't believe that his sword can regenerate so fast. Just dip it in water and it's good as new, amazing."
Sin looked at him and then at her arm. She undid a brown strap and took her shoulder plate off and the chain mail fell down her arm. Taking her glove off and the the chain mail, she tossed the steel aside and rubbed her.
"Why'd you take your armor off?" Hanson put his hands behind his head as he looked up at her.
"So I can have a serious conversation with you."
"Serious? What kind of serious?"
"I want to finish what we were talking about back on the beach the previous day. So then, like I said before, what do you think of me?"
Hanson blushed as he sat up and backed up on the bed crossing his legs and holding his ankles. "Um, well, I guess. I guess your nice, and kind, but pretty rough sometimes."
Sin giggled a bit.
"What's so funny?"
"C'mon, really. No lying. I know how you feel about me, and I want to see if you can tell me the same thing."
"You know what my feeling are? How? Tell one thing then."
"Hmm, let's see. I know you when you get the chance, you take a quick look at me."
"Look at you, like where?"
"Do I really need to say it?"
"Yeah, I need to see if you really know."
"Okay, I know you look at my chest so I can't see you. But I'm not surprised since you're a guy."
Hanson was bright red, "So is that suppose to mean then?"
Sin giggled again. "That means you like my figure."
Hanson looked away with an even brighter red face.
"You think I'm mad, or are you just embaressed?"
Sin smiled and scooted closer to him. She placed her hands over his and leaned over to look up at his blushing face. "Come on Hanson, look at me. Don't so silly about this."
Hanson looked at her. "Sin...Do you have any idea how much...I love you?"
Sin's eyes widened and her face blushed.
"Yeah, I had a feeling you didn't know that at all. But, isn't it natural that I would love you? I mean, we have known each other for years, we grew up together, played together, spent most of our lives together. So, won't this feeling be, normal at this point of life?"
Sin closed her eyes a bit and leaned up to him, kissing him gently.
Hanson's eyes grew wide and Sin pulled back slowly, looking into his eyes.
"S, Sin?" Hanson said gently.
"Like you said. Isn't normal for this by?" Sin grabbed the bottom of her cloth shirt and started to pull it, showing her bra.
"Wait, wait a second Sin. I said it woul dbe normal, for us to fall for each other, but."
"Hanson, why are you so nervous? I thought guys liked this."
"We are old enough, you're a guy, I'm a girl, what's the problem then?"
"There, there is no problem, but."
Sin pushed him making fall onto the bed. She got over him and grabbed his shoulders. "C'mon Hanson. There's nothing holding us back. Please, I've waited for so long for you to say those words to me. Please, let me show you, my feelings for you now."
The cawing of birds was over head, and both Ice and Zen sat out on the deck with expressions. Both red to the face.
"So, they kept you up also?"
"Yeah. Never thought I'd see the day, or hear the day." Zen started laughing as did Ice.
Ice and Zen slept outside and were to afraid to go into the room. Unsure of what waited inside.
"Well, you gonna wake them up?"
"Me? Why not you?"
"But you're his friend."
"You're his sworn follower."
The two sat there and did nothing, just waited to hear something, or see something walk out of that room.
"Still wish we didn't let them have the room."
"Oh come on, sleeping outside can be better. The stars, the breeze, just the feeling is great." Ice smirked.
A rumble sound echoed, and both Zen and Ice looked at their stomachs.
"I'm so hungry." Zen winded.
"God, fine, I'll get food." Ice said as he got up.
"Don't wake up Sin, she's a demon in the morning."
Ice slowly opened the door. The room was dark and the candle was out. He looked down to see cloths, and a weird expression was on his face. He walked slowly to the crates and reached one. This crate was already opened so he was able to just lift up the lid and grab some food, but dropped an apple. Rolling to the wall, he looked back at the bed, and felt the stair of cold eyes. Looking back, he saw one of them up a little, and staring at him.
"Um. Morning." Ice said, but just got a even colder look.
Ice grabbed he could and rushed out.
The glare was coming from Sin and she scratched the side of her head. She looked down at Hanson as he slept. She smiled and laid back down, wrapping an arm over him and holding his shoulder.
"So, you saw the look of death?"
"Yeah. God, I hope they don't do this every night. And in my bed."
Episode 5:Hostage Island
The small crew has been at sea for three long days, and are dying for land.
Sin was looking down into the water with her arms crossed on the edge resting her head on her arms. Zenwas laying out on the deck and looking up at clear blue sky, as did Hanson, but was sitting down. Ice left the ship to do it's thing and watched to see if land was coming up.
"See anything Ice?" Hanson asked.
"Nope, nothing yet." Ice replied.
Zen looked at the seagals and followed them as they flew. "What would it be like to fly?" Zen asked.
"Don't know. It's like, impossible for that. Need be a bird or some weird creature with wings." Hanson said resting his head on his open palm with elbow on his knee.
"You think Razor Fang has somthing that can fly?"
The long and large room was quiet. Only Razor Fang sitting at his seat of the room. A women came walking in and got on one knee before him.
"Master, our destination is in sight."
There was silence, no reply.
"What are the men doing?"
"Um, the usual. Drinking, eating, and...Using the slaves."
Razor Fang rose and stepped down and stepped aside to not step on the women. "Human men. Beasts. Fuiled by, alcohal and, women. I will never understand how human men work." Razor Fang said as he left the women.
Ice yawned and tried to keep his eyes open.
"See anything Sin?" Hanson asked.
Sin squinted out and saw a small dot. "I think I see somthing."
"You serious!?" Zen jumped up and looked out. He squinted also to get a good look. "LAND!" Zen cried out.
Ice jumped up and looked out. "Oh thank god, it's about time!"
Hanson didn't really get all excited about this, as did Sin.
The island was a traders island. Full of people from around to do trade and buisness with others that have come across the island.
"Traders Island. A perfect place to get supplise." Ice said as they came closer to the island.
"Seems alright. There's nothing bad there right?" Zen asked.
"Nope. It's a fine island."
"Please, please don't hurt me."
"Treat me like some monster huh?" A high pitched voice spoke.
People backed away in fear and watched as the insane demon killed the trader.
This demon was like a skeleton in armor made of coral and had fungas and mold growing all over him to make skin. This was one of Razor Fangs high ranking demons. A thick and long chain was wrapped around its body and at the end of it was a jagged and sharp blade of bone and coral.
With this devil, were Razor Fangs own elites. Creatures of the sea but with bodies. One was a like a mutated crab with a rotting human body and dressed in coral armor and a giant crab arm. Two others were like eels with human bodies and both carried two rusty and jagged swords.
"Now then. We heard there were some travelers here. One, by the name of Hanson. Anyone know who he is."
There were no replies.
"If you are hidding him, then we will just have to," The demon stopped and turned around throwing his chain and piercing a mans head and pulling the chain back and out of the head. "start killing random victims."
The three elites started to chuckle as the looked at the innocent lives.
Ice's boat pulled up to the docks and docked. Tying the boat to a post so the ship wont float off, Hanson, Sin, and Zen got off and saw no one at the docks.
"Hey Ice. I thought you said this place was always busy." Hanson was confused from the lack of people as he walked down the docks.
Ice finished tying up the boat and looked around the docks. "Yeah. It is busy, but, mabye there's somthing going on that got everyones attention."
"All captives are within the hotel. And the barrels have been placed."
"Excellent, now we wait for them to arrive."
The traders and commeners of the island became hostages in the hotel, and the barrels. Full of explosives that would blow the hotel apart from below.
"Hello!?" Sin called out.
"Anyone around!?" Hanson called out aswell.
"This is strange, this place is always busy." Ice scratched the side of his head as he looked at the stalls and stores.
Ice went up to another stall and sniffed the air. "Oh, damn."
"What? Smell somthing?" Hanson asked.
"No s***. It's like, somthing just died, or a rotting corpse." Ice said plugging his nose and looking at the stall again, see a small trace of green and black slime. Ice looked at it and thought for a moment. His eyes widened and and he turned back to the others. "Stay on your toes. We have company."
"What? What's that suppose to mean." Zen asked feeling uneasy now.
"This smell is one that no one of the White Flame would not forget."
Hanson looked to side and stepped aside as a chain wizzped past him from above and pierced the ground. The chain was withdrawn and went up to the rooftop of building.
"Hanson!" A high voice cried out.
Hanson and the others looked up to see the rotting demon.
"Welcome Hanson! Im glade to be the first to introduce you to your grave!"
Episode 6:Bloody Chains
"Hurry to your death Hanson!" The demon cried out as it threw its blade'n chain at Hanson. Hanson was frozen by the demons look but the chain was blown off course.
Hanson looked back and the looked down.
Zen had his gun out and smoke was come out of the barrel. "Un fair advantage. You being down here, it being up there." Zen smirked.
Ice drew his sword to its second stage and stepped up with Hanson. "That is one of Razor fangs top assassins. Rot. Uses a thick and long steel chain with a coral and bone blade as a weapon. I've fought this sick f*** before. Loves killing, infecting others with his disease." Ice glared at Rot.
"Ha! If it isn't Ice! You coward out on our last fight. Now it's time to see who is better!" Rot started laughing.
"Zen, Sin. Go look for the residents. We'll take care of this freak." Hanson said drawing his sword."
Sin nodded. "C'mon Zen."
Rot pulled back his chain and grew an insane looking smile. "Two versus one! How unfair! I've got the upper hand in this battle!" Rot yeiled and started to spin his chain in the air and gave the chain distance and gave one swift slash.
Ice and Hanson jumped forward to dodge the long and deadly slash.
The blade sliced through a stone wall and the chain was brought back.
"Hanson take down the building."
"No prob." Hanson gripped his sword as it glowed. He stabbed the ground and a small fissure formed and went straight for the building Rot was on. The ground exploded as the building lost its pillars of support and began to collapse.
Ice slashed the air and sent out a mirage of ice like dagger into the collapseing building.
Smoke arose from the rubble and there was silence.
"Was that it?" Hanson asked.
"No, he likes toying with his so called victims." Ice said backing up a bit.
From the smoke came the blade right for Hanson. Timing it, Hanson hit the blade, sending it back. The blade rose it teh air as it spun around and came down slashing everything about twenty feet away and in a full 360 degrees. The blade slashed Hanson gut and cut his deep. Blood gushed and Hanson feel to his knees, dropping his sword and holding his stomach.
"Hanson!" Ice cried as he rushed to him. Ice was out of reach from stepping back before the attack was released.
The chain was withdrawn into the smoke and Ice held Hanson.
"Ice, it, it hurts." Hanson started to cry in great pain.
Ice saw the cut and saw it was quickly getting infected.
"Damnit." Ice said picking up Hanson and laying him aside from the fight. "Just hang in there Hanson."
Hanson's eyes were closed and blood was coming from his mouth and stomach.
Ice rose back up and looked back and saw Rot walking out of the rubble with an evil grin on his face. "How sad. It's just the weak and cowardly Ice." Rot started laughing.
Ice grinded his teeth and his grew feirce and full of rage. "I lost my captain. Who was like a brother, but I will not lose our last hope to finish this dark time." Ice's grip grew and grew. "I will see to it that you and your master will die a brutal death!" Ice cried as he charged for Rot.
Rot grinned and threw his chain.
Ice slashed it and jabbed his sword out, making the sword extend out and pierce Rot. The sword kept extending out to it rammed Rot through the rubble and into another building.
The sword melted the extra ice and Ice slashed the wind multiple times releaseing wave after wave of daggers.
Ice panted from large amounts of rage and the amount of power he released. Looking down, he saw the chain and it wasn't withdrawing. But, he looked out, and from the building, came bursting through the wall was what looked like hands. Ice stabbed the ground forming his barrier an dteh hands stopped, going back into the building.
Rot stepped out fom the building and had no chain.
The barrier melted and Ice looked at Rot.
"Impressive Ice! But can you deal with a weapon fully controled by me!?" Rot yeiled as he showed his arms expanding out like chains. Rots arms were now like chains. Arms looking like spins and grew out to attack from a greater distance and with drew when not in use.
"S***, I had a feeling that was not his main weapon." Ice said to himself as he looked the insane demon.
Rots arms slowly extanded out and moved freely like snakes in the air twisting and turning.
"One down, one to go." Rot smirked as his arm withdrew and went out, straight for Ice.
Sin and Zen ran through the empty streets, hearing the collapse of the building behind them.
"You think there alright?" Zen asked.
"Ofcourse. Hanson will easily out power that thing. Im sure he'll be the on eto save Ice from attacks." Sin had loads of confidence for Hanson.
"Please! Let us out!" A man cried out from within the hotel.
"Shut it human!" A gurgling voice said. The eel like creatures grew from two to six to increase the chance of no one escaping.
Women and children praying for help and the men think of a way to get out.
One man stood up and began to yeil. "You sick freaks! Let us go! Or we'll," The man was disturbed from one gaurd extending his neck and grabbing the mans head with its mouth and dragging him outside. The eel dropped him and withdrew his neck. Shooting its head into the mans stomach, it started to eat him alive.
The women and children looking away from the blood and guts that came from the man and was now on the demons face.
The eel looked back, "If any speak like again, the punishment will be the same."
Ice dodged every strike Rot released but Ice had no opening for an attack.
"There must be an opening. But where?" He though as he looked at Rots body from time to time.
"Stay still and accept death!" Rot yeiled as he got more fustrated.
Ice stopped and Rot grabbed the thick blade of ice.
Ice smirked, "Bad move." After a second, Rots hand frove and began to spread down his arms.
Ice pulled his sword back, tearing off Rots hands and slashing the wind, send dagger out to Rot, and succeding on piercing Rots torso six time, shattering the coral armor.
Rot stood still and stepped back falling onto his back. "Damn...Damn you...Ice."
Ice panted and withdrew his sword, walking back to Hanson.
Hanson was still breathing and the infection was growing. "Hold on Hanson, just hold on."
Rots body was lifeless, and the his frozen arms melted, as did the daggers, leaving large cracks and holes in his armor. Sand started to shift and move to his arms, forming new arms. The sand took shape and Rot got up.
Ice looked back seeing Rot get up.
"Why won't you die?" He asked quielty as he got up and drawing his sword again.
Rot looked at Ice and smiled. "You're gonna have to do better then that Ice." Rot started to laugh again as his arms extended out again and headed straight for Ice.
Episode 7:Stench of Death
Ice was on alert and kept moving to avoid every attack Rot threw at him.
"Come on Ice! Let me kill you!"
"F*** you, you sick twisted freak!" Ice cried out as he jumped back and pointed his sword at Rot.
Rots armstwisted and turned freely ready for an attack.
"Go ahead, I'll give you a free shot." Rot laughed.
Ice's sword shined bright blue and the ice melted, forming a long and beautiful saphire like sword. Shining and glimering in the sun. Ice's knuckles went white and his teeth grinded together. Looking at Rot, his eyes were pure white and a cold feeling arose from him.
"Ha! Like that will make a difference!" Rot shot his arms and Ice slashed at his Rots long arms and hands, shattering them on impact.
"What!" Rot began to freak out from the unexpected power.
"I have had enough of you." Ice smirked and stepped forward.
"S***." Rot said as he now feared Ice.
Ice ran for Rot, but rot moved his arms to block Ice. But Ice slashed his way through Rots arms as if they were vines and we was the adventurer.
Ice was face to face with Rot, and Rot only shivered.
"You're gonna have to do better than that Rot." Ice grinned as he pierced Rot through the chest and froze Rot from the inside. Taking the blade out, Ice smiled, "Die!" He yeiled as he decapetaded Rot. His head falling to the side and his body falling to the ground.
Ice looked down at Rots body and saw the ice slowly engulfing him in ice as the ice froze the body from the inside out.
The blade shined and went back to it's first stage and Ice's eyes returned to normal.
Ice shook his head and looked at Rots lifeless body then at the sword.
Sin zen stood back to back, surrounded by the six guards.
"Um, I guess we found the people." Zen said.
"Guess so." Sin reached behind her and drew her sword and connecting them over head to form her dual blade.
Zen reached behind him and grabbed this two gun handles.
The six demons took one step forward.
As they did so, Zen drew his two revolvers and shot three of the beasts multiple times through the head.
Sin leaped forward and began to cut and slash at the ever so weak creatures. Really the only things these beasts had was a a form that would put fear into humans.
The remaining three fell apart in large chunks and the others laid in a pool of their own blood and fluids.
Smoke came from Zens revolvers and he put one back and started reloading each one one at a time.
"You may suck at sword fighting, but you sure do have some dead shooting there Zen." Sin complemented., splitting her dual blade and withdrawing the two blades.
"Lots of practice, and continues nagging from my parents is how I got this good." Zen said with a smirk as he sheathed his other revolver.
Sin went for the INN and opened the front door.
"Alright, get out of here, find a safe place for now."
"Y, yes. And thank you." One man said getting to his feet as did other men and women.
The room was dark, and smelled of rotting corpses. Black and thick liquid covered the floor and all that was heard was the small muffles of a man slowly being eaten alive.
"Weak humans." A high pitched, gurgaling voice spoke.
A black shape stood at a long desk. Long curved, pale spikes poked from the forms back and its body seemed to be running of the same black fluid. Long curved spikes of the same kind stuck out from the thick running and dripping elbows and three stuck out from the forhead and went back.
The room fell silent, and all that could be smelled, was the smell of rotting flesh.
Ice had Hansons motionless body in his arms and ran for Sin and Zen.
Sin and Zen did the same and three met at an intersection.
"What, what happened!?" Sin panicked seeing Hanson in his current state.
"Rot infected Hanson with some kind of spreading mold." Ice looked down at the slow ever growing fungus on Hansons stomach.
"There should be a hospital somewhere." Zen looked around.
"I saw one before we came across that demon." Sin pointed down the road and the trio rushed to get Hanson medical attention.
Drawing closer to the medical center, that smell of dead bodies slowly increased.
"Geez, did we miss somthing?" Asked Zen covering his nose.
With the Hospital before them, the stench was even worse. Sin opened the door, to see the room lit, showing the ceiling, floors, and walls covered in black liquid.
"Oh my god." Sin gasped covering her mouth and nose with one hand.
Ice laid Hanson aside and drew his sword as did Sin and Zen with his revolvers.
Ice looked side to side and before, the black fluid rose slowly and took form. Spikes sliding out and two deep sockets for eyes opened, and a small bright red light glowed within each eye socket. A mouth formed and black bone like teeth slid into place. Arms sprouted from the side and the creature looked as if his body was that of a demon in a cloak. No legs, and sleeved like arms.
"Dear god." Zen muttered as he rose both guns and shot each three times hitting the forhead dead on. Black goo flew to the fare side of the room and the head took shape again.
"How rude to hit me with no warning." The demon smiled. "I think you should say sorry." The liquid on the ground rose and took shapes of black skeletons weilding black blades. "Even if you don't, I'll just kill you right now."
The skeletons began to walk to the trio and moaned with ghoulish cries.
Episode 8:The 2nd Assassin
"Get out of the way!" Ice roared as he slashed and ripped through the black skeletons.
"They just keep coming." Sin said as she croutched and brought her blade up beheading one skeleton and chopping one's legs off.
Zen made sure each of his shots were head shots to savior his bullets. But when it came time to reload, he used a knife that he carried around for melee attacks.
When one ghoul was slain, another or two replaced it. To the trio there seemed to be no end to the black undead.
"You're jes waisting your energy." The black blob moaned with its gurgaling voice.
Ice beheaded one of the ghouls and saw an opening. slashing the wind, he sent multiple daggers at the demon. Piercing it with five daggers Ice smirked, but lost it seeing them just slowly slid to the ground with the black fluids.
"Nice try. But you should expect that from number four." The blob spoke.
"Four?" Ice muttered as he looked back and slashing through more skeletons.
Ice recalled somthing of what the thing may of ment by calling itself four.
"I see you have met Rot. A powerful, yet weak demon. It's what you would expect from number five."
"Oh yeah, I never told you. You see, It has been revealed that Razor Fang has five elite demons. Five powerful and skilled demons that are his personal assassins called the Fangs of the Black Heart."
"Fangs of the Black Heart."
"Word of advice Ice, if you are to encounter a demon that names itself a number from one to five, it may be one of Razor assassins."
Ice recalled the advice he had aquired from hansons father when he fought for him. Five demons, five assassins, powerful assassins that are ranked from one to five. Lowest, weakest, highest, strongest.
"I see. You're one of Razor Fangs assassins!"
"Very good. Im surprised you cought on to such a hint of who I am."
The ghouls stopped and dropped to the floor, melting into the ground.
"I am number four of Razor Fangs personal assassins named the Fangs of the Black Heart. You have killed my weak companion Rot, or number five. His only use was slowly revieving, and his arms. Nothing else."
Sin was confused and looked over to Ice as did Zen.
"Ice?" Sin enterupted.
"Guess you two don't know. Razor Fang has powerful forces working for him. One is the group Fangs of the Black Heart. One, two, three, four, and five. Titles given to the strongest then weakest. I thought Rot was tough, but if he's the weakest, then this thing is more powerful. Im guessing you use this black stuff to summon your own minios and attack from all sides if possible. Changing form to beat your foes."
"Im shocked. To think you kno wmy power."
"Just yours and Rots. The other three are unknown to me."
"To bad. You will need to know to kill them. But name wise, Im sick of four, call me Decay."
"Decay. Hmpf, sounds like you're just a tricked out version of Rot."
"You can say that. We are brothers by the way. But thank you for killing him. He was the weakest link after all."
Sin and Zen just watched and listened to their conversation. Ice and Decay exchanged glares and Decay rose his arms. His lower half began to spread and his arms grabbed hold of the ceiling. Decay's body started to boil and run faster to the ground.
As the fluids ran down, a solid form was slowly revealed. A large skeleton with large spikes coming out of its back, elbows and forhead which curved back. The hollow eye sockets had liquids running from them and as well as the mouth and cracks through the body. In his right hand, a jagged and long blade formed from bone and teh handle wrapped in what looked like flesh.
"Knowing so much, I reward you with my true form. The true demon Decay."
Sin shivered from the horroifying image before her. Zen stepped back once but had his two revolvers ready.
"So, a second form. One that summons and spreads, and this one. What can you do now?" Ice grinned readying his blade in both hands.
"Why don't you find out yourself!?" Decay yeiled as he leaped for Ice and rose, then brought his sword down at Ice. Ice blocked the blow but was forced back and down a bit.
"Strength, for sure." Ice muttered.
Zen aimed for Decay's head and opened fire. Shattering Decay's skull and sending black liquids all over the place. Yet, the liquid stopped in mid air and went back to the skull, putting all the skull fragments back into place.
"And recovering from injuries." Ice said pushing Decay back and readying his blade again.
"There, must be, a weak spot." Ice thought looking at Decays body. Decays skeletal like body being larger than more skeletons, the rib cage with thick black goo and the arms and legs covered and dripping of the same substance.
"Sin, Zen, take Hanson and get out of here."
"Ice, but." Sin said looking at him.
"Don't mind me. Hanson needs medical treatment, and that sure as hell is not here. Now go!" Ice yeiled in fustration.
Sin pondered and nodded. Zen went for Hanson and picked him up as Sin and Zen retreated from teh scene once again.
"Letting them go, and leaveing you here?"
"As long as Hanson lives, I don't care. Because he, is th eonly one that can kill Razor Fang."
"Ha! No one can kill my lord...Unless." Decay thought, and realised what Hanson was. "Impossible! He can not have that power!" Decay jumped for Ice and Ice smirked as he prepaired to block the upcoming attack.
"Will Ice be alright?" Asked Zen.
"Im sure he will. Besides, he could slay that other demon, Im know he can kill this one."
Zen and Sin hurrieed for the boat that brough them here and knew of their next destination. Riches Island.
Candles lit the dark room. A bloody symbol was painted on the ground and in the middle sat a women. The deadly, yet beautiful sorceress Tay.
Behind her, stood a large and hellish beast, Razor Fang. Croutched down, razor Fangs neck extened out like a snake from a hole of the large ball liek torso.
"No, not yet master."
"Focus. Use what I tought you."
Tay cought images of a fight. A demon, and an man.
"I see them, but the boy is gone." Tay said as she opened her eyes.
"They must of escaped again." Razor Fangs head was beside Tays. Compaired, his head was larger, and longer. Thick and sharp teeth and wet, slimy skin.
Tay placed a hand on Razor Fangs head and smiled. "I thank you. For giving me back, my life."
"You are one that deserves such a prize for what you have done."
Razor Fangs snake like neck only extended as he gently wrapped himself around Tay.
"Soon master, we shall have what we both desire." Tay muttered in a tender and seductive voice.
Episode 9:Gifted Youngin
Attack after attack, Ice looked for a weak spot and blocked or dodged decays attacks.
"Weakling! Stop moving and attack me! Or atleast let me kill you!"
Ice stopped and slashed the air sending dagger for Decays. Shattering bone, Decay stumbled but the bone was pieced back together by the living fluid.
"How many times have you done this? Can't you see my body will only piece itself back together."
Ice grinned his teeth in fustration. He knew that it wouldn't work, but he needed to stop him for a second to see a flaw, if there was one.
Zen was at the oars rowing for Riches Island. Sin sat across from him with Hanson laying down with his head on Sins lap. She kept one of her palms under his head and another placed on the seat. Her eyes filled with depression, fearing that he may not be able to be healed.
"Sin, don't worry, we'll find help."
Sin slightly smiled and nodded looking up at Zen.
"I just...Hope he makes it."
Zen never saw her this sad before. When he got hurt before, she did worry a little, even when he broke his arm she wasn't like this. He thought, perhaps that night, made their relationship deeper and made certain that Sin will always worry for him, and will always be by Hanson's side.
"Sin. Tell me."
Sin looked at Zen from the corner of her eyes. "What?"
"Why are you so worried now? Before, you just. well, you never acted like this when he has been hurt. Did he say somthing to you?"
Sin nodded and smiled, having a few tears run down her cheeks. "He...he did. He said somthing, that I always wanted hear."
Zen smiled. "Well, it's about time. Never thought it would happen."
"Don't what me. I know what you two did." Zen smirked.
Sin's eyes widened and her face grew bright red. Her face went from embaressment, to rage. "Shut up Zen! Who are you to make fun of me when Hanson is like this!?"
"Just letting you know that it aint no secret now."
Sin glaired at him and looked back down Hanson. "Idiot."
Large pieces of bone slowly pieced back together. The torso, arms, legs, and head all being put back together.
"It's useless Ice." Decay spoke as the pieces finished being put back together. "You are helpless. There's nothing you can do to kill me, let alone hurt me."
Ice breathed and sweated. Hands loosing grip and his sword growing more heavy by each attack.
Decay stepped forward and came to Ice, looking down at him.
"Weak as always. I knew that even his best men were not able to even hurt the Fangs of the Black Heart."
Ice fell to one knee and looked up, holding his sword in one hand at to keep him up. His eyes filled with rage and hat.
"Bastered. Don't, ever, mock him, again."
"Mock? It is fact. He was a weak and pathetic man."
Ice grew even more angery of Decay's words.
"Now then." Decay rose his sword up high. "Die."
Ice took a deep breath and released a bloody roar. Eyes turning white and his sword, metling into the saphire blade from before. Standing up and slashing at Decays giant sword, the bone like sword shattered and in a section an dtook out a chunck of the sword. He swung for Decay's arms and only shattered them as well.
The rib cage, horns, Ice left him his legs and smirked at Decays present state.
Stepping back, Decay looked at the sword i n Ice's hands. "No...Not you."
"Yes me. And it's been a long wait fo rme to kill the death brothers. You and Rot, are weak, and this mans soul is aswell. The perfect host, and the perfect body."
Decay was frozen in fear and tried to run away, but onlt stood and watched as Ice leaped forward and decapited decay.
His head rolling of his shoulders and onto the wooden floor, followed by the massive skeletal body.
Ice looked behind him and smirked. "Weakling."
The sword returned to its first stage and Ice's eyes returned to normal with them onlt closeing and him collapsing from him being so weak.
Zen leaped out from the boat and pulled it onto the sandy beach.
Zeb took Hanson and carried him onto the island and Sin followed.
"So, where do we go?" Sin asked.
"The city is not to fare. I had to come here to the beach sence row boats can't dock at the docks." Zen began to walk along the beach and to the city with Sin beside him, looking at Hansons face.
"Stupied brat!" A man yeiled.
A young girl fell to the groud after being kicked in rage. Her innocent face looking up in fear of the three men.
"I wanted you to cure me today. I didn't want you to slowly heal, I want it now!"
The young tanned skinned girl, possibly from a fare island only shook. Dressed a worn hooded cloak and black shoulder length hair, she just returned a look.
The man only kicked her again and walked away.
Getting up slowly, the little girl sniffed and put her hood back on. Her cheek wet from tears, and eyes sore from them.
"Can we even afford treament for him?" Zen asked.
"I have some money. Just thirty pieces and that's it."
"Thirty pieces? Like that would help."
"Oh yeah and what about you mister loaded."
Zen was quiet, and his face blushed.
"You don't have anything do you? Not even one silver piece?"
"Shut up! I forgot my pouch bacl at home."
Sin held back a laugh.
"That's not funny!" Zen yeiled.
Sin looked out and saw a small figure.
Zen looked out to were Sin was looking. "Must be from the city. Hey!"
The figure looked up and saw a man calling her. Stopping in her tracks she turned around and started running.
"Hey, wait!" Sin cried as she ran after her.
The girl just kept running, but tripped and fell.
Sin cought up with the girl and kneeled down. "Are you alright?" Sin asked helping the girl up.
The girl pushed Sin away and looked up at her as her hood fell off showing her young face.
"Why were you running?"
"Why should I tell you!?"
Zen cought up an p anted from running with Hanson in his arms.
"We wanted to ask you if you knew of a hospital."
The young girl looked at Sin and Zen, wondering why they needed a hospital, then saw Hanson with his growing wound.
"Are you insane, no normal person can cure that!" The girl pointed at Hanson.
"What, do you mean?" Sin asked.
"Put him down."
Zen pondered and sighed. he needed a brack and laid Hanson down on the warm sand.
The little girl began to take his shirt off.
"Hey what are you!?" Sin started to freak out.
"It will just get in the way."
The girl reached in her cloak and pulled out a small vile of blue liquid. Taking off the cap, she dropped a few drops on the mold.
"Okey, withtrain him."
"Huh?" Zen was stumped.
"He is gonna feel a lot of pain. This will hurt enough to wake someone up from a coma."
Zen and Sin both grabbed Hansons arms and was ready for almost anything.
The girl grabbed the corner of one side of the mold. "Alright, get ready." She said as she then took a deep breath and pulled, breaking off a piece of the fungus.
Hansons eyes flew open and he released a loud scream.
Sin was shocked to see Hanson wake up.
"Keep him down." Th egirl said pulling off another chunk of fungus.
After a long period of pulling of the mold from Hanson's body and slowly melting it from the inside, she sewed Hanson up and finsihed healing Hanson.
"Sin, you stop crying now." Hanson looked down at her as she held him and continued her drama fest.
"So, what's your name?" Zen asked teh tanned skinned girl.
"June, what are you, some sort of healer?"
"Correct, youngest one of my people."
"Youngest, well, how old are you?"
Hanson, Zen, and Sin were frozen in utter shock. The thought of her being a successful healer and only ten, just twisted their minds.
"Another one is out master."
"No matter. Those two were weak."
"Shall we send out the others?"
"Just send one, Three should be more then a match for them."
In the corner of the dark room stood a figure. His right eye gone, and skin around gone, only revealing the bone under. The socket shattered, and left a gapping hole in place of his right socket, and a large open crack going from the socket to the side of his head. A blood shot left eye, and a demonic right arm.
In time, Hanson, Sin, and Zen will face now the three most powerful assassins, of the Black Heart.

Episode 10-The Predator and its Captain
The streets were full of people and the city was so alive. There was something going on everywhere. But at the moment Hanson, Sin, and Zen were looking for a place to get food and water and more importantly, a crew.
"Stay close you guys, anything and everything can happen in these streets." Said June.
"I wouldn't be surprised." Replied Zen.
"There's a few pubs down this street. Go ahead and get what you need, I gotta get a few things." June turned to looked up at them. Pointing down the street to show the pubs she directed them on where to go. "I'll come find you guys later on." June then walked off into the thick crowd.
Next to the trio was a pub called Port Skull.
"Wanna start here?" Asked Sin.
"I guess." Hanson walked forward and into the pub. Inside was smoke, yelling, and lots of pirates. On a wall was a flag of the Black Heart, the eel skull and cross sabers. Men threw knives at the flag as they drank rum and acted like mad men.
"Um...we should try a different place." Sin said stepping up to Hanson getting a bit scared.
Sin was pulled to the side by a large man with an arm tattoo of an octopus.
"Hehehe, look who have here men. Gotta us a young skank here." Two other men started laughing as the large man had his thick arm around Sin's neck.
"Sin! Let go of her!" Hanson yelled.
"Ha! Or what?" The big said with a smirk. Zen pulled out his two guns and Hanson drew his sword.
"Oh, scary." The man drew a large gun and the other two drew guns and knives.
"Han....son." Sin said in a soft voice as she tried to breath.
People stopped what they were doing and watched what was going on. Zen squinted and aimed his guns at the two men, but shot their wrists. Their wrists were struck by the bullets and they dropped their guns to the floor. Blood poured down their arms and the two men cried in pain. Filled with rage, teh large man threw Sin aside and aimed his large gun at Zen's head.
"You god damn bastard!" He yelled pulling the trigger.
As the bullet shot from the barrel, Hanson's sword struck the bullet and redirected it into the floor. After the display of perfect timing, Hanson thrust out and pierced the large mans bicep, tearing the muscles.
"Ahhhhh!" The man screamed as Hanson pulled his sword out.
Blood was all over place. The three men grasped their wounds and watched the blood pour out.
"You gusy are making a mess." A man said walking up to the three men.
He was dressed in a large coat, blood red and had gold shoulders. A medium grey beard and eye patch gave detail to his old face. His large pirate hat had a human skull and was burned on the edges. His shirt was black and white, pants black leather and his boots went up to his knees and had gold buckles.
The old man drew a large revolver from his inside coat pocket, and shot the three men in the head.
Laying dead, people whispered of how it was necessary for their deaths.
Hanson looked over to Sin went for her, helping her up to her feet. "Are you alright?"
"I'm, I'm fine." Sin held her head and looked at the dead bodies.
The lod man looked at the three.
"Who are you three? I can tell you're new here." The man said putting his gun away.
"I'm, Hanson. That's Zen, and this is Sin."
"My name is Captain Glenton. Captain of the Predator."
"The Predator? I know that ship. That must mean you're one of those Black Heart hunters right?" Zen said smiling.
"Hmm, yes we are. Tell me, how do you feel about Razor Fang?"
Hanso looked at the man and looked down, filled with rage. Hanson stepped forward, then rose hsi sword as if ready to strike Glenton. But he turned, throwing his blade at the Black Heart flag. As it struck the wall, the flag was ripped apart from the shove wave the sword released.
"That bastard destroyed our home! Our home Rendon was burned to the ground by that demon!" Hanson looked back at Glenton. "When I get my chance, that monster is dead."
Hanson walked towards the flag and pulled his sword out of the wall.
"This boys hat for Razor Fang is strong." Glenton thought as he stroked his grey beard.
"I'm sorry for his out break, that subject, is, not one of the best to talk about with him around." Zen said walking to Hanson. "Let's go." Zen whispered to Hanson.
Nodding, Hanson withdrew his sword and left the tavern with Sin following behind.
The tavern costumers went back to their own business, but Glenton kept thinking about Hanson. "That boy, and that sword."
"Take care now." An old woman said.
"Thank you." June waved at the old lady as she left an herbal shop.
"Hope they're okay." June said to herself making her way through the crowds. For a moment, June stopped, feeling a strong aura. "What, was..." June looked back to only see people, normal people. Nothing strange. Ignoring the feeling, she continued walking.
"I think we made a friend in there." Zen laughed.
"That old guy?" Sin asked.
"Yeah, he put those idiots out of their pain and he seemed pretty nice to us."
"Well, we should look for June, the other two taverns had no one in them who would fight." Hanson sighed scratching the back of his head.
"Guys!" A voice called out. June ran for Hanson and the others with a smile on her face. "Any luck?"
"Damn, that really sucks." June giggled. "You guys wanna eat?"
"Um, sure. You treating or something?" Zen asked.
"If you want. I have plenty of money." Giggled leading them through the crowd.
In the crowd stood a man in wearing a trench coat and a hood over his head. He watched the four, and slowly followed them.
The four stood in an ally with Zen and June fighting with each other.
"Every place so fare has been packed!" Zen yelled.
"It ain't my fault every place is packed!" June yelled back.
"You live here, so you gotta know of a place!"
"I'm a kid! I don't know every thing!"
Sin and Hanson sighed from how the two acted.
"Will you two stop it?" Asked Sin.
Zen turned around and crossed his arms. "This sucks ass man."
"How mature Zen." Hanson laughed.
June laughed, then stopped. Looking out into the crowd, she stepped aside a bit. "You guys feel something?"
"No, why?" Zen asked.
"I feel, this aura. It's a strange one. I feel, emptiness, yet filled with a power like no other." June said.
As people passed, she caught a glimpse of the hooded man. "Him." June pointed.
The others looked to where she pointed and caught a glimpse of him also.
"Who is that?" Asked Hanson.
"Don't know, but this aura is coming from him." June said as she started to run into the ally with the other following her.
The man stepped forward and started to walk in their path.
In the ally, two men stopped them. Two thugs.
"Hey kid, this our ally. Wanna pass? 1000 gold." One thug said laughing. The other thug started laughing also.
"Yeah, so that will be 5000 gold." The other thug said.
June and the other looked back, to see the man.
"Shit." Zen stepped back.
The man pulled his hood back, to show his terrifying face.
"Oh my god!" A thug yelled pulling out his gun. But before he could anything, the mans hand was blown apart, then a side of his head collapsed.
"Duch!" The other thug cried, then the back of his head was blown open. Blood was everywhere.
"An assassin." Hanson said.
"I'm not surprised." Zen said pulling out his guns. Sin drew her two sword and connected them to make her twin blade. June too cover behind Zen and was scared of what they were going against.
"Number 3. Fire and sonic waves." The man said in a low tone. "Number 5 and 4, are dead I see. And Ice, can't protect you now."
"No? but I can." A voice said as a gun went of. Three bullets shot through the demons head and made the beast collapse.
Looking back, the four saw Captain Glenton.
"Son of the great Captain Trident."
"You, knew my dad?"
"I thought that sword seemed familiar. Son, I'm guessing you are looking for a ship? No need to look anymore. The Predator shall be the vessel that will bring down the Black Heart." Captain Glenton smirked as he lowered his two revolvers.
The four smiled, but heard the beast get up.
"No gun will bring me down." The beast's wounds closed and he was back on his feet. "You have now left me no choice, but to kill you in a slow, painful way."
