Disclaimer: I do not own Bloody Roar or its characters. But Shin and Rei are of my design
AN: As written, this is a sequel to the Bloody Roar; The Next Level fic. If you haven't read that, I suggest that you do so if you want to know what's going on. Also, it may be awhile before I can actually work on this fic. Basically, I'm putting this here in order to remind myself later.
Now that that's said, enjoy…
Because we can't let the pact dictate our lives. We should use it to move on to the future where things like that don't happen again.
Why are you helping me, Kenji?
Because you and I are the same.
……… We…should go. You're right. There's no sense in dying here
"I now pronounce you husband and wife. You may now kiss the bride."
The couple embraced each other and kissed as the crowd clapped.
"I give you Mr. and Mrs. Ohgami."
The clapping turned into cheering as Yugo and Alice finally separated, smiles full on their faces as they left the church, all the while passing many friends and family.
"A rabbit and a wolf. Talk about an extreme case of opposites attract."
A group of four was currently talking about the newlyweds. One was a man with a massive frame, scar over his eye, and short, spiky blond hair. Next to him was a woman, wearing a red dress and had blond hair as well and green eyes. Across from her was another woman, with blue eyes and similar spiky hair, but longer. She was wearing a black dress, which she seemed to be uncomfortable in. Finally, the last one was a raven-haired man, hair that was braided in his back. He wore a pair of glasses over his eyes. Gado, Jenny, Jane, and Long.
"Tell me about it." Jenny responded to Gado's earlier comment. She then threw a mischievous glance at Long and Jane. "Speaking of which, when are you two going to get together?"
Long was caught off-guard by the question, something that doesn't happen to him often, "Uh, well..."
Jane managed to back him up, "Prying into our lives again, Jenny? And here I thought you gave that up."
The green-eyed bat zoanthrope shrugged casually, "Old habits die hard. And why shouldn't I?" She looked off to the side and smiled again. "You two are the only ones left. I mean, even the kids are set up to be married."
That came from Kenji, the raven-haired youth that Jenny had cast a glance at. With him was the brown-haired, brown-eyed girl, Uriko. They were standing nearby when Kenji had noticed Jenny's glance and overheard her comment. Uriko had heard it as well and her face was light red from embarrassment.
"It's no big secret." Jenny continued. "You two are almost always together."
"Ooh, sounds like a secret engagement, eh?" Jane added.
Uriko grew in an even deeper shade of red along with Kenji, who was practically spluttering in his words, which was unusual for the normal calm and silent youth.
"H-hey! That's not..."His eyes wavered slightly and suddenly caught something in the crowd.
The object he was looking at seemed to hear his thoughts, for his eyes turned straight at him and widened in recognition. The figure moved toward them, accompanied by another person and they soon reached the group.
"Hello Kenji. Uriko. It's been awhile."
"Shin. Rei. You guys came."
The two in question was a boy and a girl, about the same ages as Uriko and Kenji. Shin had dark, unruly hair not unlike Kenji with strange honey-yellow eyes. The girl had medium blue hair and eyes. Aside from those features, she looked almost exactly like Uriko.
"Hello Uriko. K-Kenji." Rei spoke quietly.
Kenji gave her a quick glance, "Are you alright?"
Shin nodded, "She's fine. She's just used to calling you...you know...Bakuryu."
Bakuryu. Kenji wasn't particularly fond of hearing that, even though he accepted it as a part of him. But considering Rei's more than unusual past, he could understand fully.
"Oh, okay. Well, glad you two could make it."
"Well, if it isn't the elusive Shin."
Shin turned to meet Yugo. The man was of medium size and build with an X-cross scar between his eyes. Next to him was the bride, Alice. Her short, lavender hair matched with her usual kind expression as she looked at the others.
Shin let out his hand, "Yugo. Alice. Congratulations."
Yugo grasped it firmly, "Thanks, Shin. How have you two been?"
"We've been well. Rei and I managed to find an apartment. The good part is that its in the neighborhood, so we'll be seeing you guys again."
Alice smiled, "That's great. But it'll be awhile before you see us again." She held onto her groom, "We're going to the Bahamas for our honeymoon."
"That's wonderful. I hope you enjoy yourselves."
Yugo smirked, "Oh you can bet on that."
"Yugo!" Alice exclaimed while lightly slapping his shoulder
Everyone laughed lightly at the display before Kenji asked Shin, "Are you going back to school? It's the final year."
He nodded, "Yeah. It'll be a little difficult with work and all, but I can pull it off."
"And Rei, what about you?"
The silent girl nodded, "I will attend as well."
Uriko smiled, "That's great. We can get together, hang out, have lunch. It'll be great."
Kenji gave his compatriot an exasperated look, "Uh, Uriko. Don't overdo it."
Rei answered her though, "That...sounds nice."
"Really? Okay! See Kenji. She thinks it's a good idea."
Kenji retorted, "Well she doesn't know you as well as I do."
Uriko frowned and stuck her tongue out, "Meanie!"
Shin gave a slight chuckle before talking, "Well, we better get going now. We have a long day tomorrow."
"So soon? You just got here."
"Sorry, but I have a lot of work to do tomorrow."
Gado placed a hand on his chin, "You two are quite busy. Work and school. You're far too young for this."
Shin turned to the lion zoanthrope, "It needs to be done. Don't worry. We'll manage."
Kenji nodded understandably, "Okay. We'll see you in a week at school then."
Oh yeah, one more thing. I just got Bloody Roar 4 and it rocks. I may add some of the characters from there and go along with its storyline later on.
