    I'll be using Pablo Yuki.

    The sun had reached its highest point and the heat was burning my skin. I had been walking through this godforsaken dry, grassy landscape for days now and was in need of water and food. I have never really liked dry, sunny days. I prefer cold, snowy or even rainy circumstances. That kind of weather would always remind me of my home and family. Ahhh family... What else can motivate a man enough to keep on living with a purpose? Protecting one's family, isn't that what every man has to do? Suddenly, as if heaven had heard my cries for water, I saw a bridge at the horizon above a river. Relief, hapiness and all kind of thoughts raced through my mind, but only one stayed behind. Who was the man who was standing in the middle of the bridge? As I walked towards the bridge I was measuring the man, I could see in his eyes that he was like me. I saw the river reflecting in his eyes and the way he was looking at it made everything clear. He wanted rain, not sun. But there was something else about him him I couldn't describe... I don't know why, but I could see that he was a wise man and perhaps even in pain. I wasn't sure about the latter. I stopped next to the man and extended my hand. "Hello sir, my name is Pablo." I said as I was waiting for his hand to shake mine. Isn't that what being polite is all about? Saying your name first in order to get to know someone's else?

    Re: May the story begin.


    Often times, I would be reminded of the dreadful memories, of the past...my past...My feet would move sub-consciously, and shudders would overtake my body as I walked - walked aimlessly across and out the village. And there would be whispers, whispers that spoke of my broken state, my unmendable soul.

    I sought. I wandered. I traveled. Yet, nothing could fill the empty hole in my heart, the desperation that I felt every day.
    My eyes did not see, my ears no longer could no longer hear - no, I was lost in my own thoughts, my dark world that was never to end.
    Seldom did I know where I was, nor why I was doing what I was. Many a times had it occurred to me to end my own pitiful life, but something - something always held me back. Perhaps it was some kind of cowardice, or even, I daresay not, a glimmer of nonexistent hope.

    Today, I had wandered upon yet another unknown area, however, instead of just passing through it, I stopped, surprising even myself. No, there was something about this bridge that drew me in all its simplicity that I was beckoned to pause for just a moment, my dead gaze traveling over the wooden structure into the river below.
    And I felt something...
    Perhaps it was some kind of childish impulse, but it was one that held me still, for just a moment. And I was tasting the fresh air, sensing the warm wind, and feeling the water rush so strongly before me, a huge contrast to my own, frail self.

    Perhaps it was a day, or only an hour, but the peace did not last long, and not surprisingly, it was some stranger who had interrupted it.
    "Hello, sir." It was a polite voice. "My name is Pablo."
    I turned, somewhat stunned for a slight moment. What met me was a somewhat young man, clad with black clothing not unlike myself, complete with white hair and...
    I paused for a moment, unable to find the correct word.
    Intriguing, emerald eyes...
    "I..." I couldn't remember the last time I had spoken so openly to anyone. Almost without my knowledge, my own hand came up to meet his. "I..my name is Kiritsugu."
    I paused, some kind of undeniable curiosity overcoming me. "But who...who are you?" The question came out quite unexpectedly, in a soft whisper.

    Re: May the story begin.

    Who is this man I asked myself. Who was he to be so intrigued by the river? I could see him looking at the water like only one man I know could. I, myself, have always wondered how it would be to be like water. Streaming through mountain rivers into small ponds, into lakes and even into mighty oceans. Then to evaporate due to the sun and start all over again. It would be amazing if life were as easy, to get a second chance or even a third... Oh, how I'd like to evaporate and start my lfe all over again. There are so many things I would've done differently if I had known the outcome.

    It almost came as a surprise as the man answered and shook my hand. I could feel that, what did he say? Ah yes, Kiritsugu. I could feel his hand trembling a bit as he shaked my hand. Why was he so... unsure? I could see his eyes looking deeply into mine, as if he was looking directly into my soul. They also betrayed his feelings, they were despereately looking for something. Perhaps for the meaning of life. I immediatly felt that this man was like no other, I felt that this man had already a lot in his life. And those were no bright and delightful things.

    "But... Who are you?" he said. Almost whispering his question. Who am I? Good question. I didn't really know how to answer him. I never really have had someone to explain me who I was. I have been alone since it. "I am just an ordinary traveller, in search for some entertainment" I answered in an attempt to hide my true feelings.

    Re: May the story begin.

    His answer was as quiet as my own, however, it seemed practiced...almost cliché, and I did not feel quite at peace.
    "You..." My right hand gripped the bridge tightly and then loosened as I pushed away from it, distancing myself from the stranger that had seemed to appear rather unexpectedly.

    Tension gripped the air as my gaze met his, but in the end, it was I who looked away first. No, it had been wrong of me to judge so quickly - I had merely been frightened for a short moment, and now I knew why.
    He reminded me of myself...too much like myself...

    A grimace passed over my features as my left hand slipped sub-consciously into the depths of my cloak, gripping my usual kunai.
    But, no, I was in no mood for such games. A small, yet burning fire had started within me, one that I had not felt for a long, long time. So I drew my kunai out, pointed at the stranger, a hard look within my eyes.

    "Tell me," I stated loudly, a forceful tone within my voice now. "What do you want and why are you here?"

    Re: May the story begin.

    I swa Kiritsugu being shocked by my amswer as he pushed himself away from me. I saw a wild look appearing on his face, was he scared? Was he afraid from me? I kept lloking at his face and our eyes met. I saw fear in them, was he scared because he met me, a man who had such a tragic history? Was he scared of me who never wanted to hurt someone? Anger grew deep inside of me. Why was it that people always got scared when they saw me? WHY CAN'T I LIVE PEACEFULLY??

    I saw a grimace passing over his face as his hand went into his coat. Not again I almost cried out. Not again someone who wanted to kill me... My anger grew into something... wild or even beast-like. I wanted to survive! I wanted to get to know why my whole family had been killed! I wanted to know why people referred to me as a monster, I wanted to know the truth!

    "Tell me, what do you want and why are you here?" he asked me while pointing a kunai at me. I couldn't control myself anymore, my blood became cold and so did my heart. Yet again I had tomfight to survive, yet again someone wanted to get rid of me. "I am here, on this world, to survive! I am a test subject! I am here to show how long people can continue living while being pained by their history!" I shouted. And then everything turned white. My body took control of my mind and acted by itself. The cold within mewanted to get out, it wanted to freeze the man. It wanted to encage him. I started sending out my cold chakra into the ground underneath Kiritsugu and made it rise upwards. It turned into a thin spike of cold ice and pierced the arm he was pointing the kunai towards me with. The white clouds before my eyes disappeared as I realized what I had done."I... I am sorry... I just want to keep on living" I whispered.

    Re: May the story begin.

    A terrible, vitriolic look passed over Pablo's face, twisting it in an agonizing manner as he saw my kunai. Surprise overtook me as he shouted, a wild, desperate tone within his voice.
    "I am here, on this world, to survive!" His words filled the area as an icy sensation suddenly touched me, and the sun faded away...
    "I am a test subject! I am here to show how long people can continue living while being pained by their history!" My eyes widened at his declaration as the ground before me turned pure white, crackling as it traveled towards me. Chakra rushed to the soles of my feet as adrenaline coursed through me, and I stumbled backwards, almost frightened once more...
    I had to...to get away, away from that ice...that despair...

    Kiritsugu, why are you so cold? I involuntarily gasped as a brilliant spike of ice shot up before me, just seconds where I was before. Kiritsugu, why are you so afraid...?
    And I was shivering in the cold, standing frigidly as terror, not of the man before me, but of something too familiar, gripped my heart once more.

    "I...I am...sorry," Pablo whispered softly. "I just...want to keep on living..."

    I stared at him, my hands shaking like leaves in the wind. A warm sensation flowed down my wrist, and I realized I had been gripping my kunai so hard that the steel had drew blood from my palm.
    No, he...Pablo, there had been hope in his words.
    It was naught but a fighting spirit in his declaration, one that had long left me, and I wondered, wondered with all my heart how he had managed to keep such a thing.
    The kunai fell from my grip as I made eye contact with Pablo once more. I needed to know. I wanted to know. No, I could not afford to walk away this time, like I had so many times in the past.

    "Tell me..." I begin softly. "Tell me...your story..." And I was running past the ice, a hand upon the hilt of my sword as my eyes locked onto his face.
    With a deft movement, I flung the sword out of the hilt, catching the handle with my right hand in the air, raising it past my body for a horizontal strike on his chest as I got within short range of Pablo.

    "I need to know..."
    For it may as well be the only hope I have left in this world...

    Regular sword, nothing special.
    And nothing like listening to the main theme of Sword Art Online as typing this out.

    Re: May the story begin.

    His eyes widened as I shouted and attacked him. I saw him stumbling backwards with fear. Had I been wrong? Did I judge too early? Maybe he wasn't that special after all... Maybe he was just a sad person who wanted to abreact his feelings on a random passenger. His hands were shaking and his hand with the kunai was red, he was bleeding. But I didn't even hit his hand with the spike... Maybe he wanted to get id of his fear by using pain? Was he getting ready to counterattack me?
    Then I saw something change in his eyes when our gazes met yet again. They were focused an determined. I could see that Kiritsugu wanted to defeat me in order to get to know something. But how would he defeat me? Would he kill me? Would he leave me here, heavily wounded and slowly bleeding to death? I don't want to die. Not today, not tomorrow, just not yet!

    "Tell me... Tell me your story...." he said softly as he started running towards me, past the spike of ice. I saw him grabing his sword with his right hand as he prepared himself to deliver a strike towards my chest. I wanted to stop him. I wanted him to be aware that it would be dangerous, but before I could do something the white clouds troubled me yet again and I unsheathed my own sword. When Kiritsugu swung his sword horizontally towards my chest, I intercepted it with the blade of mine. We stood close to each other. I could feel his breath, he was breathing heavily. Propably out of excitement and determination. "You want to know my story?" I whispered with a cold voice. "Are you sure? It even frightens me to think of what happened. Do you think you could handle it?".

    Re: May the story begin.

    Deftly, I brought my other hand upon the handle of the sword, shifting my feet to maintain equal balance with the ground.
    The power of Pablo's grip resonated throughout the blades as I leaned slightly forward, pressurizing his weapon as he exhaled heavily, whispering words through set teeth.
    "You want to know my story?" Pablo said softly. "Are you sure? It even frightens me to think of what happened. Do you think you could handle it...?"
    "Handle it...?" I breathed, narrowing my eyes. "What do you know?" Suddenly loosening my power on the clash, I ducked down as I kicked forward my right leg.
    Pushing off of Pablo's knee, I felt myself skidding against the ice, distancing the range between us as I came to a slow stop.

    "Unspeakable despair..." The words poured out of my mouth as I readjusted my stance, holding the sword directly ahead of me. "Tell me, do you know...do you know what it is like to have the only person you care for..."

    I closed my eyes, squeezing them tight, too tightly...

    "Turn and cold-bloodedly try to kill you?!"
    And I was screaming, screaming in sorrow as tears streamed down my face uncontrollably as my entire body began to shake once more.

    Kiritsugu...you're worthless now...
    You piece of shit...
    So naive...did you think I really cared?
    Grow up, Kiritsugu...
    Grow up....

    Re: May the story begin.

    He was looking at me through narrow eyes. "Handle it...? What do you know?" he said. I could hear anger in his voice. Anger not only directed at me, but also at something which had happened to him in the past. Could it have been something similar to what had happened to me? Could it be possible that there was someone else like me living on this planet? Someone who had to fight every day in order to survive... Suddenly, I didn't feel his sword pressing against mine anymore and due to the force I had been pushing with I lost my balance and stumbled forwards whil letting go my sword. I saw his leg moving towards my knee in order to kick it and I managed to change the stumble into a tumble over his back as Kiritsugu had ducked down. When I hit the bridge and turned around I had decided to show this man what had happened.
    "So you wish to know what happened that night, aye? I'll show you... Be gratefull, for I have only told this story to someone once." I said while sending chakra to his brains. I used the chakra to manipulate his view and made it all happen before his eyes.
    It was night and two people were running through a forest. A man and a woman. They were man and wife. The woman was holding a baby in her hand and she was crying. But not out of happiness because she just got a baby, no. She was crying due to fear. Loud barks could be heard and men were shouting. A group of men with torches were following the couple and dogs were running in front of them.
    "Catch those monsters!" "Burn them to death!" "Go on Black, tear them to shreds!" and many other shouts could be heard.
    Then something terrible happened. The man stumbled and fell on the ground. He shouted at the woman to keep running and save her's and the baby's life. He would hold the dogs and the man up for a short amount of time. The wife cried something out and then continued running. What then followed was disgusting. The dogs jumped on the man and ripped his face apart while the men got closer and closer. No matter what the poor man did, the dogs were too strong and too many. When the dogs stopped, the man was barely recognizable and the group of men threw their torches at him and burned him alive.
    Then we saw the woman again. She had heard the dogs barking followed by flesh beig teared apart and tears were troubling her vision. But she was wounded. Her leg had a large wound in it and she couldn't continue running for long.

    Then I stopped the genjutsu and continued the story by myself. "She was lucky enough to find a village and gave me to a man who she thought would look after me. She told him what had happened and fell to the ground. She had lost too much blood and died in front of the man."I said.
    "Now you now it. Are you happy?!" I shouted at him while grabbing a kunai. I ran towards Kiritsugu and wanted to kill him. He made me see it again... He made me suffer!

    Re: May the story begin.

    My thoughts faded into nothingness as the surroundings around me blackened into a world not unlike my own, and within the dark of the forest, I saw before me a man and a woman.
    The moonlight reflected eerily off the woman's face, and it was only seconds before I realized that it was wet from recent tears. The woman was clutching a small bundle, hugging it tightly to her chest as she gazed at the man next to him with an anxious look.
    "Catch those monsters!"
    The voice was harsh, full of hatred, and I found myself turning wildly in uncollected fear as several men emerged from the trees, carrying torches.
    Dogs, dogs with glimmering, sharp teeth bared their fangs as they ran next to their masters in the same fervor.
    "Burn them to death!" "Go on, Black, tear them to shreds!"
    Before I knew it, my heart was racing, and my feet moved quickly - I found myself standing in front of the man and woman, hands spread out wide in an attempt to protect them.
    But...but the men and the dogs ran right past me, as I never existed in the first place. And I stood frigid, my eyes widening in shock, my heart stopping as there came sounds of snarling and flesh tearing behind me.
    No...
    A howl filled the night as a terrible, long scream came tore out of my throat.
    You worthless piece of shit...
    Did you think you could save everyone?!
    YOU COULDN'T EVEN SAVE HIM!


    "She was lucky enough to find a village and gave me to a man who she thought would look after me." Pablo's voice filled my ears. "She told him what had happened and fell to the ground. She had lost too much blood and died in front of the man."

    No...
    I don't want anyone....
    Anyone to suffer anymore...
    I can't...
    I can't save anyone...


    "Now...now you did it!" Pablo's eyes were brimming with tears as a kunai appeared in his hand. With unsteady steps, he charged at me, the pain all too clear in his gaze now. "ARE YOU HAPPY?!"

    No...

    "NO!"

    And with a wild sweep of my blade, I knocked the kunai out of Pablo's hand as I grabbed his wrist with one hand, fixating him with determined eyes.
    "No one...no one...deserves to suffer..." I breathed heavily. "You and I...trapped in this corrupted world forever..."

    I suddenly realized I had his wrist within my grasp and letting it go, I took a single step backwards.
    "He...no, it, told us, that power was everything..." Slowly, I raised my sword up with one hand. "Kill...kill...that's all he said..."
    With a wild burst of chakra, I swung my sword down in a vertical slash, releasing a red wave of fiery chakra at Pablo.

    Re: May the story begin.

    Kiritsugu's eyes widened as he got caught in the genjutsu. The tragic images of that night were now appearing in front of him, the needless bloodshed and cruelty of mankind would certainly remain in his thoughts. My anger and grief had reached a higher point than they had ever before. They had gained a superior position regarding my main senses and feelings, they were controlling my body. They made me run towards him, they made me want to kill. They made me want to stab him to death!
    Suddenly his eyes got clear as he shouted out a single word "NO!". Even though it was just one word, I could hear and feel his emotions through it. He finally was determined to fight, he finally was ready to kill. Before I could realize it, he had gotten a hold of my hand and said "No one...no one...deserves to suffer... You and I...trapped in this corrupted world forever...". I smirked "Trapped in this... place of grief and sorrow we are indeed... But forever? Who are you to decide upon that? Maybe we can help each other... Maybe if one of us kills the other, he might finally find his true purpose in life... Would you be able to do it? Kill a man to save yourself and continue running from your fate?"
    I was staring into his eyes, and they were staring back at mine. Determination was the one thing they showed the most. Slowly, his grip loosened from my hand and I saw his hand sliding towards the hilt of his sword. Without wasting a second I started channeling wind chakra in both of my hands and hold my wrists up in front of me. As Kiritsugu got a hold of his sword and unsheathed it to unleash a wild burst of chakra, I punched forward with my right wrist and released a burst of chakra from my own. The two blasts would collide right between us and as we were stading rather close to each other the impact from the collision of the two blast would set us both flying backwards.
