In the demon realm, Roswell sits in a meeting with Kogamaru and Shear. They all sit quietly for quite some time.
"Anyone get hold of Shingi?" Shear asked
"Of course not. Every time I send a man to retrieve him, they come back with the same message. "I will not attend this meeting. Go away." Roswell said slightly infuriated.
Kogamaru leaned back in his chair rubbing his eyes.
"Something wrong?" Shear asked.
"No. Just had a long night. Between negotiation with those useless twurps in human realm and taking care of what you all asked about those bodies, I haven't had much sleep." Kogamaru explained.
"Hey! Has anyone heard anything from Sephile? She should have contacted someone by now...." Roswell said
Both lords shook their heads.
"Damn..." Roswell said pounding on the table breaking it in half
"Roswell...I understand that you're mad and all but please....don't break my table...." Shear said.
Their current meeting was being held in the Western Lands. Its been 2 months since Shingi's tussle with Raijin. Afterwards, Shingi stopped participating in their meetings and refused to accept any of their requests. Roswell had all of his men and some help from Shear's men and some of Kogamaru's people to help in rebuilding the Eastern Lands since Nara himself destroyed it. Reasons unknown.
"Hey, you think Shingi is with them?" Roswell said.
The other two lords went quiet.
"No way. He may be stubborn and hard to deal with but....." kogamaru said
"Think about it! We were all standing right there when Raijin brought back Nara's body but he was the only one to believe he wasn't dead. Now he doesn't wanna participate in our meetings or offer any help!" Roswell said. Kogamaru and Shear took in all this information for Roswell did indeed bring up some good points.
"Surprisingly, you bring up some good points Roswell." Shear said
"But we simply can't just jump to conclusions for if we're wrong, losing Shingi's trust would hurt us indeed." Kogamaru said
"And if he is indeed with them?" Roswell asked
"Then you best believe he will be dealt with in a swift and painful manner." Kogamaru said.
"Shouldn't we deal with this now?! I'll go and confirm his intentions. After all, I have a score to settle with him. For Raijin..." Roswell said.
"Go ahead." Kogamaru said and with that said, Roswell was up and opening the castle doors.
"Shear. If you don't mind, would you go with him and make sure he doesn't go to far. You know how he is." Kogamaru asked.
Shear stood up and grabbed his katanas from the stand by the door.
"Any word on Sessaru yet? So far he seems to be the only one we haven't found and don't give me that bullshit about how he might be the only one who didn't make it." Shear said.
"Sorry pal. No word. Nothing. No movements. No signature. Nothing. He just may be dead and if he's not then he's doing a very good job at hiding his presence. *laughs*
Shear opens the door
"Please. Keep looking into it for me. Anything will do. After all, stealth is his specialty." Shear said
Just as Shear was leaving
"Oh? If that's the case dig this." Kogamaru said pulling up a virtual screen playing a recording from a scout that managed to get close enough.
"See this boy here? His name is Ashen. He's a average human but as you can see, *screen widens* he sits amongst the other three as if he's part of the gang. Coincidence? I think not although we've scanned him several times, he pops up human every time." Kogamaru informed.
"Thank you very much. I appreciate it." Shear said as he walked away.
"Going to see for yourself?" Kogamaru asked.
"Yes but after I look after Roswell for you." Shear said and left.
"AAAAAAAAAACCCHHHHOOOOOO!!!!!" Sessaru sneezes all over Ta.
"What the hell is wrong with you!" Ta snapped
"Sorry sorry.." Sessaru said generously as he wiped snot from his nose.
Time had flew by for it had been 2 months since Nara's disappearence. Everyone had spent a great deal looking for him but to no avail and Lady Kareen had locked herself in her room. Steven, Amelia, and Ashen proceeeded with school as usual to avoid detection and Kareen had brought some seeds of her Vido plants from the demon realm and planted them around the house so now from the outside, the house literally looks like its part of the hill it sits upon. The attacks from demons and scouts have died out recently. With Shin out killing them as they appear there hasn't been much to worry about but Ta says that he has a feeling things are gonna get interesting.
Around the end of the school, Amelia's class threw a party for their teacher because she would be leaving them soon. Ashen was invited and the girls thought it would be cute to dye his hair pink. Ashen didn't think to much of it butr a certain individual didn't think to kindly of it after the party was over...
"PINK?! OF ALL COLORS THEY HAD TO PICK PINK?!" Sessaru snapped
("Calm down. Its not that bad...I mean...those girls sure were cute...") Ashen said
("Don't give me that crap! You're a guy for crying out loud! Guys don't wear pnk!" Sessaru said.
A couple of students that were walking by had stopped and looked at him talk to himself and began whispering amongst themselves
"What the hell are you looking at?!" Sessaru snapped and the students walked on.
("Sessaru come on! What is your problem?!") Ashen snapped.
Sessaru remained quiet for a while and clinched his fist tight and swung at himself. Just before the fist connected with his face, Sessaru switched places with Ashen causing Ashen to hit himself. The blow caused Ashen to stumble backwards and tumble down the stairs.
"They just never learn....." Shin said with quick swing of his blade throwing the blood off his blade as another scout fell to his sword.
Suddenly from behind him, a battle cry was heard and a scout with pink hair charged from behind some bushes. He spun his nunchucks around with fierce intensity. He swung at Shin with all he had. Shin quickly dodged and spun around the poor scout. The scouts attack was powerful enough to leave a rather impressive hole in the ground where the nunchuck struck but unfortunately for the scout, that was the last thing his ever did before Shin's blade impaled his throat. Blood gushed from his mouth as he tried to turn his head to look and see the seven year old boy who he had been defeated by. Shin quickly withdrew his sword from his opponents throat and returned it to its sheath. The scout fell to the earth motionless. Blood poured from the hole in his throat nonstop. A smile appeared on the little boy's face before he heard the sounds of voices. Shin quickly left the scene of his crime.
"Ugh! Is there anyway to remove this......this "dye" I do believe you called it." Sessaru asked as he turned corner of the school that lead to the track field in the back.
("Well I like it. Therefore its staying!") Ashen said simply to annoy Sessaru.
"You can't be serious!" Sessaru complained
("Why are you complaining?! Your hair is naturally black and blue so pink shouldn't make much of a difference!") Ashen said.
"Hmmm.....you have a point..." Sessaru started before coming to a halt.
in the hall of Kogamaru's castle, hundreds upon hundreds of demons anywhere from peon to general class assembled from both Shear's, Roswell's, and his own armies under his order. Everyone was curious as to why Kogamaru would assemble them there. The main hall's doors opened and Kogamaru emerged with a smile on his face. The troops worries were at ease.
"Men! Thank you all for coming here on such short notice. I've assemble you all here this day for a few reasons. One. I'd like to thank you all for your hard work and loyal services to Shear, Roswell, and myself. We may not say it but I'd like to say it personally. Thank you." Kogamaru said.
Applauds and cheers were heard amongst the troops. Kogamaru signaled them to quiet down and the did so. A few coughs were heard amonst the crowd.
"And finally, I'd like to tell you all that.....your services are no longer needed." Kogamaru said with a twisted smile. Suddenly, steel-like bars fell down blockiing all exits out. Panic and fury came over the troops but was quickly put to halt as with a single movement of the fingers and by the bunch, their heads came clean off or they were split right in half. One man pounded and pounded on the steel bars trying to leave but a ill wind blew by him and he froze in shock. He turned to his side and felt a hand touch his shoulder. From out of nowhere, Kogamaru stood right beside him. Just as he was about to let out a scream of terror, Kogamaru's claws pierced the guys right eye exiting the back of the guy's head with the brain still intact.
"Amazing......simply amazing......" Kogamaru said as he turned to look behind him and saw his handywork. Bodies lie dismembered and broken laid everywhere.
"Men....clean. Have fun...." kogamaru said and red eyes appeared from the darkness. Within a flash, creatures of unknown origin licked, ate, slurped, and devoured the remains of the dead demon bodies.
"Unbelievable....." Kogamaru said to himself staring at his hands before he began to cough up blood.
"Mi'lord! Are you alright?!" a demon said emerging from the shadows.
"Yes. I'm fine. I just seemed to have overdid it a bit..." Kogamaru said shaking his head.
"Don't overdo it my liege. Its still in the testing stages." The dark cloaked demon said.
"I know and thank you Durandal." Kogamaru said as Durandal helped him to his feet.
The other demons of the shadow continued to eat and feast on the corpses until only traces of blood remained.
Durandal and Kogamaru walked back to the lab.
"What was the meaning behind that slaughter mi'lord?" Durandal asked
"Well honestly. I've had a feeling that there were spies amongst the rankings. Like why Roswell would suddenly attack the Lone Islands. With Sephile gone, Roswell is usually quiet since he doesn't make a move without her but then suddenly he attacks Ryuu's islands?" Kogamaru explained.
"Good point." Durandal replied as they stepped onto the elevator.
"So the best way to eliminate the problem is to wipe it clean. Start from scratch..." Kogamaru said as he got light-headed and nearly fell over before Durandal caught him.
"Perhaps you should......" Durandal started.
"Not yet.....I still have 2 good men out there. Once they return, I'll put the final piece of my puzzle into place....they should be returning any minute now......" Kogamaru said
("Man.....someone did a number on him...") Ashen said.
"(Isn't it obvious who did this? You're not that stupid.)" Sessaru said
"(This guy must have been a scout and HA! Looks like I'm not the only one that like pink hair!)" Ashen said.
"(Shut up!)" Sessaru said when suddenly he felt someone's presence. Sessaru kicked the pink haired guy's body into a small thicket and walked on.
"Alberti." The voice said
Sessaru continue walking
"Alberti. Its me. William." William said.
Sessaru turned around to see a slender dark haired demon about his height and jade green eyes.
"So you're alright. I was worried about you because of your illness." William said
"(Is....he talking to us?)" Ashen asked
"(Just stay quiet.)" Sessaru said.
"What the hell are you wearing?" William asked.
"Oh this? Its just something to blend in with the humans is all." Sessaru replied
"(You're pretty good.)" Ashen said
"Not bad but Lord Kogamaru is calling us back. We are to return so Operation Dual blade can commence. Come on." William said as he opened a portal to the demon realm. A smile formed on Sessaru's face as he walked through the portal with William despite Ashen's pleas.
"Mi'lord. We're on our way back. I successfully retrieved Alberti. He's okay." William said over a telepathic message.
"Great." Kogamaru said as he pressed a button and a tremor shook the demon realm and suddenly a gel-like barrier separated the two realms restricting all entrances and exits. A look of confusion came over Durandal's face and all Kogamaru did was smile.

Raijin is out looking around Sierra one afternoon when he spots Becky leaving a grocery store. He pulls out a piece of paper with her picture on as well as Nara's and Kareen's.
"That's one of them." He says, "I bet she's a screamer." He adds and leaps into the trees.
Becky is walking home when she stops suddenly.
"Something isn't right." She says to herself.
She spins around and is nailed by a left hook.
"Where is Becky? She should of been home hours ago." Kareen says to herself as she looks around the house.
There is a knock at the door and Kareen answers it. Becky is laying on the door step covered in blood and small thin cuts.
"What happened?" Kareen asks holding her tightly.
Becky tries to speak but her vocal cords have been cut as well as her voice box.
Every part of her body has been sliced. All of the cuts are thin and precise. Suddenly Becky clutches Kareen before convulsing a couple times and then falling to thin ribbons.
"She was one of the best I have ever had. She screamed so much that I'm still turned on by it." Raijin says from the tree nearby.
Kareen looks up with tears in her eyes and a look of pure rage.
She grabs her bow and fires a single arrow into the tree. All of the leaves are blown off the branches and the trunk has a large hole in it. The trunk creaks and cracks before falling over.
Raijin lands about 50 yards away on his back. Splinters from the branches cover his body.
"You've got some fight in you. I like that." He says sitting up.
Kareen is right there and delivers a huge soccer style kick to Raijin's face. Which sends him rolling across the ground and into a parked car.
Before he even comes to a rest 2 arrows are sticking through both of his knees as well as his left shoulder.
"A master archer as well? My my making you scream will definitely get me off." Raijin says removing the arrows, "Just like your friend did. Her scream was better then sex."
Kareen fires again and Raijin throws something at the arrow. The arrow pierces Raijin's left forearm and sticking in the arrow tip is the scalpel he threw.
"You'll suffer for what you did to her." Kareen says stepping closer.
Raijin simply smiles and removes the arrows.
Across town Nara is investigating the scene of one of the portals with Koji.
Raijin has a deep cut across forehead and he's panting heavily.
"You have a lot of fight in you." He says, "I find that soooo....... sexy."
Kareen has a few slices on her arm and her bow has been tossed aside.
Raijin jams his hands into the ground and winks at her. She raises an eyebrow and takes a couple steps back. From the ground beneath her feet, hundreds of scalpels shoot out, cutting her arms, legs, stomach, breasts, back, and face. She holds her scream in and falls to her knees from the pain.
Raijin stands and walks over to her.
"Was it as good for you as it was for me?" He asks.
She looks up at him and glares. He throws his head back and laughs. She lunges up and drives her head into the bottom of his jaw. His already healing teeth break once more. He stumbles backwards and holds his mouth.
"You bitch!" He says through gritted teeth.
She picks up her bow and takes aim.
"This is over!" She says and pulls back on the bow string.
Suddenly, the scalpels rain down on her and slice the bow string. Kareen falls to the ground trying to contain the pain. She does fine till one scalpel hits her in the ankle.
She groans in pain and Raijin is loving every second of it.
"Do you feel that?" Nara asks.
"Yes. I sense your presence across town but that can't be right." Koji says.
"Kareen's in trouble." Nara says and sprints out of the building. He runs straight down the street and easily clears the bus coming at him.
Kareen is stipped down to her underwear and is tied to a post. She has blacked out as Raijin makes small incisions all over her arms and back. He stares at her chest and admires it.
"What a shame." He says and starts to make more incisions across the top of them.
He stops and looks up just in time to see a large geta sandal connect with his jaw.
Nara had ran full speed, jumped, and delivered a powerful spinning heel kick to Raijin's jaw.
Raijin gets up and spits out the rest of his teeth and a large amount of blood.
"WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT?" Raijin says pissed off.
He looks around and doesn't see Nara anywhere. He looks around once more and then goes back to Kareen.
As he is making more incisions, Nara leaps down from the roof and sprints at Raijin again. Again he is late to sense Nara and is caught by a powerful spinning roundhouse kick. Raijin's jaw is dislocated and is nearly knocked off.
"WHO THE HELL IS THERE?" Raijin shouts after fixing his jaw.
Nara jumps down from the tree he was hiding in.
"You?" Raijin says surprised, "You're telling me that some old demon got the jump on me?"
Nara doesn't say a word and walks straight at him with a determined walk.
Raijin smiles and the scalpels shoot from the ground again. Nara is cut by them and still keeps going.
Raijin backs away but not far enough. Nara pulls his fist back and puts all his strength his false body can muster. Raijin's jaw goes flying across the yard and sticks into the window of Ashen's house. Raijin tumbles across the ground and Nara coughs up blood.
"Too much." He says and coughs up more blood. He falls to his knees as Lust comes through the gates of Ashen's property.
"NARA!" She screams.
Nara looks back at her and smiles weakly. He coughs up more blood and falls forward into the blood soaked ground beneath him.
Raijin gets up slowly and surveys the scene before him.
"I beat him. He couldn't withstand my power! I beat the great and feared Demon King!" Raijin says to himself. Forgetting all about his missing lower jaw for a moment he picks Nara's body up. He reaches for his phone and tries to make a call but realizes his jaw is gone. He retrieves it and leaves.
Lust jumps down out of the tree with Kareen's unconscious body.
In the Demon Realm, at Kogamaru's castle, a portal appears and Nara's lifeless body flies out making everyone duck for cover. Then Raijin steps out.
"Bow to your new Lord and Master!" He says.
"It can't be." Shear says looks Nara's body over.
"That's him alright." Roswell says as he enters.
Kogamaru nods in agreement.
"Not a trace of life." Kogamaru says.
That evening a large party is held in Raijin's honor for his mammoth victory against the strongest and most feared demon. Nara's body is hung from the castle gates of Roswell's castle's remains.
Shingi is standing on the gate staring at the body.
"Hey! Shingi! What are you doing?" Shear asks.
"Paying my respects to him." Shingi replies.
"Why? He is our enemy." Shear says slightly drunk.
"He was a good friend to me. Even when I attacked my best friend, he never changed." Shingi replies quietly.
Lust is sitting down on a chair next to Kareen's bed, where Kareen is sleeping peacefully.
Everyone arrives at home and Lust tells them the horrible news.
They all sit in their seats quietly for a long time.
Shingi is sitting next to Nara's body still staring at it.
"What happened to your jaw and teeth?" He asks.
Raijin stands behind him with a large dent on the left side of his face. His jaw has been shifted about 2 inches to the side.
"You know now that I am a hero, I can choose any woman I want." Raijin says.
"I appreciate your offer but I'm more man then you will ever be." Shingi replies.
"I was thinking more along the lines of your precious little sister." Raijin says with a smirk.
"You see there is a problem with that. She is protected by the two greatest swordsmen the Demon Realm has ever produced. If by some miracle you got passed me, then you have Shin to get through." Shingi says, "I know first hand and am able to admit it that he was a better swordsman then I. So you will never come close to her."
"You are forgetting that I just killed Nara." Raijin says.
"Bullshit. Nara simply ran out of energy and died. You were probably on your ass somewhere looking for your jaw." Shingi replies.
"You little piece of shit!" Raijin says raising his fist.
Shingi smiles as he looks back at Raijin over his shoulder and the gates creak open. Raijin looks at him confused then walks over to the gate doors.
His eyes widen and then fill with anger.
"You asshole!" He says angrily.
"You should of heard them beg for their lives. They screamed and pleaded. Your mother and sisters moaned like whores as I violated them with a stick. I even let your brother watch. At his young age I doubt he understood what was going on but enjoyed the show." Shingi explains as he closes the gates.
"How dare you drag them into this!" Raijin says.
"When I was finished they begged me for more. They pleaded and swore the aligence to me if I would screw them again. How could I refuse that offer. So I heated up a few metal bars and violated them with those." Shingi explains calmly.
Raijin flies into a rage and attacks Shingi who calmly smashes Raijin's hands with his sheathed sword. In the blink of an eye Shingi is standing behind Rajin and Raijin is standing perfectly still.
Large dents appear one by one as well as broken bones popping out through his skin all over.
Raijin falls to his knees and then to the side.
"Go on. Scream for me. Just like your family did." Shingi whispers just before Raijin lets out a blood curdling scream of agonizing pain.
Roswell, Shear, and Kogamaru all rush through the gates and stop instantly.
"What the hell happened here?" Kogamaru asks.
"What did he do to deserve this?" Roswell asks.
"I got tired of his untouchable attitude so I proved him wrong." Shingi says and pushes his way through the other Lords.
"AHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!" Raijin screams as his cheeks start tearing apart. They stop as it reaches the joint where his jaw connects to his skull.
"Why is the ground white?" Shear asks.
Kogamaru picks some of it up and examines it.
"It's salt." He says.
Raijin lays on the ground writhing in pain as more cuts appear all over his body. For nearly 3 hours cuts appear and he squirms on the ground. Finally a cut appears across his throat and he slowly bleeds to death.
Koji stands in the crowd and watches everything. He quietly leaves and goes back to the Human Realm.
