I really hate writer's block. I've been busting my head about what to write in this chapter, not to mention balancing it with my work.
It may not be what I intended to write, but at least I've managed to deliver.
Chapter 4: Life as a Gods Eater
It has been a week since the Iron Rain mission, and Shina has continuously been given more missions under the supervision of either Lindow or Sakuya. Neither of them knew why, as they seem to be as baffled by the orders as she is. One day, she happened to meet up with her fellow recruits while in the Den. Kazu, who saw her first, went up to greet her, "Hey Shina! Where have you been all this time? We didn't see you attending the lectures at all." Shina was puzzled by this information, "Lectures?" Kota replied, "Yeah, all recruits have to attend a lecture about the Aragami. Why didn't you come?" Shina shrugged, "I wasn't told that I had to attend lectures of any sort, I was busy doing missions." Kazu scratched his head, "Oh yeah, I remember Lindow saying that you were a "special case". So that applies to lectures too?" Kota was shocked by this, "WHAT! You mean that she can go on missions while we have to go through Basic Combat training and lectures!" Kazu winced, "That's what the term "Special case" means, and quit yelling in my ear!" Shina was about to leave when she remembered something, "Hayashi." Kazu looked at her, "What is it?"
It was then Kazu and Kota froze on the spot from the cold yet fierce glare that Shina emitted, "Don't ever call me by first name again, unless you want to know what it's like to be skewered by a God Arc." It was long after she left that the duo were able to move again. Sitting on the floor, Kota muttered to Kazu, "Damn, she's scary…" This question caused Kazu to look indecorously at the Old-Type recruit, "Ain't she?"
After having her dinner, Shina went to the showers to freshen up. She hoped that nobody was there by this time as to avoid company. However her hopes were dashed when she got there; Nancy is seen talking to Sakuya, Licca and Hibari along with a few other girls Shina had never met. The New-Type thought about coming back at a later time when Sakuya noticed her arrival and called out to her, "Oh Shina! I didn't see you there… Did you come to freshen up?" Soon every pair of eyes was turned towards the recruit and Shina inwardly cursed Sakuya for spotting her. Left with little choice, she reluctantly entered the room. "Nice work today, you got the hand of things sooner than most rookies." Sakuya said. Ignoring the compliment, Shina took her clothes and two large mounds popped out. Nancy, Licca and Hibari gasped while Sakuya eyed the rookie's clothes. How is it they were able to hide a chest of that size was beyond her.
Nancy compared Shina's chest with Sakuya's; while not as big, they were just as well developed. "How do you manage to get a chest of that size?" she asked. Shina shrugged, "They just grew on their own, I don't have any control of it." The other girls looked envious of the rookie's "good fortune". Licca on the other hand snuck up from behind and grabbed at Shina's voluptuous breasts, causing the recruit to call out in surprise. "For such large buns, they're actually pretty soft." The engineer said jokingly. Nancy then hit her on head and scolded, "That was very indecent, not to mention rude!" Licca rubbed her head while giving Nancy a mischievous look, "Oh, jealous are we?" The brown-haired girl flushed, "N-No, I am not!" Licca then groped at Nancy's chest, "Yeah right~" That last action pretty much drove the Gods Eater over the edge, "What, LICCA!"
As Nancy went chasing after Licca around the room, Sakuya sighed while shaking her head at the sight. Shina who had recovered from the grope earlier asked, "Does this always happen?" The superior gave the rookie a small smile, "Pretty much, but even Gods Eaters are still people inside. Nothing else has changed." Shina looked at the duo running all over the place and sighed, she could see a whole lot of headaches in her future.
Meanwhile, the boys were having a meeting of their own. Kazu, Kota, Brendan, Tatsumi, Karel and Shun were seen at the entrance talking about random stuff: the missions they've done, what Aragami they've fought, how disgusting the new food tastes like, etc. Pretty soon the topic unavoidably shifted to one particular topic: Girls. "Seriously Tatsumi, I can understand why you like Hibari and all, she is pretty. But why are you so damn infatuated with her?" Brendan asked. "Hey, you don't see her like I do! She's more than just some girl… she's my angel." Tatsumi snapped. Karel snorted, "Yeah, an angel whose wings have blown you off more times than all the Aragami we killed put to together." Shun nodded, "Face it, Tatsumi. Can't you just accept that she doesn't like you and find someone else?" The Leader of the Defense Unit shook his head furiously, "No way! I'm gonna give up just from a few rejections. Just you wait, someday I will make her mine!" Kazu smirked, "Yeah, when the Aragami become cute little girls perhaps." Everybody laughed while Tatsumi scowled at the statement.
"Anyway, what about you Kota? What kind of girl is your type?" Shun asked. Kota thought deeply before answering, "I guess it will have to be Sakuya. She's really pretty, you know? Good-looking, friendly, and strong… Like an Amazon warrior, how hot is that?" Everybody nodded in agreement. Shun gave his own opinion, "What about Nancy? She's cute, polite and a pretty good shot. Not as good as Gina, but she has the lowest cases of friendly-fire." Kazu decided to ask Brendan about his opinion, "What about you, Brendan? Anyone catch your eye?" Brendan looked at everyone for a moment before giving his answer, "Well… I guess it'd be the New-Type, Shina Tsukuyomi."
The look on everybody's faces when they heard that was something people could laugh about for days to come. Kota was practically dumbfounded, "Seriously? You didn't hit your head or something, did you?" Karel snarled, "Of all the women you could pick, of all the girls, and you pick the one who sent me to the medical bay for a week with a broken jaw?" Brendan gave a sly grin, "Technically, I like anyone who can put you on your ass, Karel." Kazu shook his head, "Boy, did you pick the wrong girl. There are better ways to commit suicide you know, if you are looking to die. From what I heard, she and Soma were having a row as soon as they met." Everyone was surprised by this, "Wait, are you serious?" The recruit nodded, "Ask Eric. Apparently they were so scary, it made fighting Aragami by yourself seem like a good idea."
Kazu then added thoughtfully, "Though I can understand why you'd be attracted to her. I mean, she is a pretty good-looking girl. Note to mention the fact that, with the exception of Sakuya and Tsubaki, she's the only girl whose cup size is above D." It took a minute or so for everyone to realize what he just said. Brendan looked at the rookie incredulously, "And just how did you happen to know about that?" Kazu looked at everyone with a huge grin on his face, "I was hoping you'd ask. One time, I managed to sneak into old Dr. Sakaki's lab and stole a look at the girls' medical results." The dumbfounded look on their faces was fun to watch, at least for Kazu that is. Tatsumi soon got excited, "Seriously! Then that means you know what Hibari's measurements, right? C'mon, tell me already!" Kazu grinned again, "You really believe what I said? I was only kidding! But seriously, Shina's chest size is really above D because… Why are all looking like that?" Everyone had a look of fear on their faces and they were looking right at him… No, behind him?
It was then a hand appeared and grabbed at Kazu's shoulder, causing him to freeze.
Slowly turning his head, Kazu soon froze in fear as Shina was standing right behind him, a VERY scary glare on her face. "Come with me, I want to have a little chat with you~" Kazu tried to run but the grip on his shoulder wouldn't let up and soon he was being dragged way. "Somebody, please help!" he pleaded. Obviously nobody did, but they held their hands together as if praying. "Goodbye, Kazu." Said Shun. "It was nice knowing you." Said Brendan. "May you rest in peace." Said Kota. Kazu shouted, "Hey! Don't act like it's the end! I haven't finished my training yet!"
"You can finish it in the next life!" Shina proceeded to drag Kazu into an empty room in the lower floor and shuts the door. Everybody then followed suit and met with the girls on the way. It wasn't long before others including Lindow heard about what happened and joined them. For the next few minutes, there was nothing but silence, a dreadful, silent vigil hung in the air. And then…
Everybody looked at the door in shock, wondering what was happening on the other side that would Kazu scream like that but were too scared to find out. But the screams didn't end there.
"STOP, STOP! PLEASE, YOU'RE KILLING ME!"
"NO, NOT THERE! ANYWHERE BUT-ARGHHHH!"
"PLEASE, NOT THAT! ANYTHING BUT THAT!"
"I'M GONNA DIIIIIEEEEE!"
"EEEKKK! OUCH! STOP IT, I BEG-AAAAAACCCCKKKKK!"
"SHINA-I MEAN TSUKUYOMI, I'M SOOOORRRRYYYY!"
It continued for at least an hour or so, and everyone was too shocked and worried to leave and merely stood there, waiting for the outcome. It was then the door popped open and Shina casually walked out. She soon stopped as she noticed all the people gathered outside. Lindow decided to ask the dreaded question, "Err, rookie? Is Hayashi…" Shina snorted, "He's alive. Relax, I know he is still needed as a Gods Eater." Everybody sighed in relief, but Nancy was still curious about what happened, "Err, Shina? About those screams…" Shina shrugged, "I only softened him up a bit, nothing special. As Gods Eater it shouldn't kill him, but he won't be moving around for a while." Everybody sweat-dropped, wondering just what on earth did Shina do to make Kazu scream like he did. Of course, nobody had the guts to ask so Shina went to her room unopposed. When Lindow went into the room, he winced at the sorry sight that was Kazu Hayashi. There was no way normal first-aid would work for this case, "Hey Sakuya, Kanon, Nancy. I think you three better handle this, and we should also call the Doc on this one."
Back in her room, Shina sighed to herself as she lay down on her bed and watched the ceiling. Her thoughts were about her adoptive parents, who were under the care of Fenrir. Wondering if they were alright, she wanted to call them but couldn't bring herself to do so. If she did, she would get side-tracked with what must be done. The irony, that she would once again be the pawn of the very corporation she had escaped from, the people who were responsible for creating her, the ones she hated more than anything else; even the Aragami. There was no point in getting close to anyone here, since if they knew what she really is, they'd abandon her without a moment's thought.
Slowly, her hands unconsciously drifted to her neckband, to the small charm attached to it. It was a small cross with a sapphire embedded to it, a present from her guardians and she treasured it dearly. For some reason her thoughts drifted to Soma, while she greatly disliked the veteran, she also felt closer to him than to rest of the Gods Eaters. In fact, the first time they met she felt a sense of nostalgia, as if she had met him before.
Closing her eyes, Shina decided to put that thought on hold and focus on what's at hand. Whatever Fenrir is truly up to, she will play along… for now.
And done! I can't say that I did my best with this, so you can expect some edits in the near future.
Until then, please rate and comment as usual. See ya!
