The running water from the shower had a cooling effect on his body. It relaxed and soothed him, returning thought to his brain. When he was certain he had driven all pervasion from his mind, he switched the cold water off and stepped out of the shower. Grabbing a towel from the towel rack, he wrapped it around his waist, securing it before stepping into the bedroom of his apartment.
Eying the place warily, he felt a slight sense of relief when he noticed that Saber had not gotten up and came into the bedroom, nor, did it appear, was she wandering the apartment, he discovered as he made his way quickly into the living room. Poking his head around the corner, Gilgamesh allowed a sigh of relief leave his lips as he noticed Saber sleeping peacefully on the couch where he had left her.
Slipping back into his room, he put on a fresh shirt and a pair of pants before returning. Saber was still fast asleep and, remarkably, she also seemed to have drank the water he gave her. Sitting down on the
Oni no KounYukimura Chizuru, the last of her clan. Her story begins beautifully, like a song, the harmony of her family and her childhood ringing throughout her ears. Cuddled and protected, she had nothing to fear. And then the song turned into a wail of rage and anguish.Oni no Koun by BloodofCerberus
Chizuru's village was wiped out. Many members perished in the fires, and those who managed to escape the pyros fell to worse fate, death by sword.
It was a massacre.
It was only a Godsend that Kodo, Chizuru's adoptive father, found her and carried her to safety. Chizuru remembered nothing of the fire, nor of her happy childhood memories. It was blank, a clean plaque, ready for a new story to be written.
And Chizuru did. For years, she was unaware of what she was. Heir to the Yukimura estate. A pure-blooded oni.
It was only when her father disappeared did Chizuru's story begin to take on a new twist. Her venture led her to become friends with the Shinsengumi, masterless swordsmen with awe-inspiring dreams.
But that fragile happin
Infection ch2The creature snarled at the blond savagely, clenching and unclenching its clawed hands as drool dripped from its long muzzle. Cloud glanced around, checking his surroundings quickly. Part of him hoped to have some manikins come his way. After all, as much as he hated working for Chaos, the crystal abominations came in handy, especially in a situation like this.Infection ch2 by BloodofCerberus
But nay, they didn't show up. Of course, Cloud thought. Nothing ever goes your way when you need it most.
He didn't get a chance to complain more, however, as the beast snarling before him leapt. Claws out, slashing the air, the monster gave a mighty howl as it descended upon the Soldier. Using the weight of his sword, Cloud gave a swing, catching the beast in mid-leap, yelping in pain as it was sent propelling through the air helplessly.
It wasn't over, however. Far from it, in fact. The creature was back on its feet, snarling again, crouched on all fours before it, once again, leapt at him. Cloud again used his sword as a defe
Infection ch1It came through the Rift.Infection ch1 by BloodofCerberus
Slowly and cautiously, it rose on its hind legs, sniffing the air. It could smell others, living things that it could feast upon.
Its black lips soon became covered with drool at the thought of fresh meat.
With the moon glowing in the background, the creature threw its head high, howling.
The monstrous release echoed through the blue battle ground, vibrated against the pillars as it stretched out across the land.
The hunt had begun.
Cloud paused in his stride, listening as the sound he heard seconds ago left his ears. He waited, listening, but heard nothing.
He knew in this world there were the gods, their pawns, the manikins, and the moogles. He had no fear of any of them, although there was a slight concern if he came across one particular harmonic warrior. He prayed it wasn't her, and then continued on his way. The Lunar Subterrane wasn't a place to often greet guests, hence why Cloud chose this plane. He had hoped for some peace and quiet, but it se
