I'm FINALLY back! It took long enough...
Josh:*Yawn* Ugh, what do you want, brainless?
I want you to get off your butt and start working.
Amaterasu: Yay! We're finally back!
I know, I'm sorry that I've been putting this off, I've just been so busy.
Josh: So, sitting on your couch counts as being busy?
Well, my friend just got back from Brazil, I've babysit my nephews-
Josh: I didn't ask.
Whatever. Enjoy the story!
"Issun!" I woke up that night, calling. "Amaterasu- I just had the worst dream. I dreamt that Issun left because we didn't tell him-"
"Josh. That happened. Try not to dwell on it." She said, not even bothering to turn to look at me.
"It- it did? Then why did-"
"I said don't dwell on it." She said, her tone as cold as steel. I settled back down, curled up into a warm ball, and tried to erase the day's memories from my head.
"Josh," I heard something call out. I opened my eyes to find a burning forest, all of the animals panicking. I tried to rush towards them, but something wouldn't let me move. "This- this is an idea of destiny." I heard a female voice whisper. "But- since you know what is to happen, you can change it, correct?"
"Who…?" I started, but it quickly cut me off.
"All these animals… claimed lives… all part of this cruel thing we call destiny. But, destiny can be changed. Destiny is what is destined to happen. But willpower is what's needed to make things happen."
Animals were running, screaming, some on fire. Some would run out, just to run back in to take something else. "When pitted against one another- which one wins? Destiny or willpower? I will leave that for you to decide."
As the image of the fire faded, it was replaced by the serenity of rushing water. 'Since you know what is to happen, you can change it, correct?' Was it saying that the forest was going to catch on fire? And this river- it could only mean… We need the waterspout technique!
I woke up with a start. "Not bound to get sleep today, am I?" I asked. I pushed Amaterasu. "Amaterasu! Wake up." She stirred and got up, an angry expression on her face.
"What?" She growled. "You know I'm in a bad mood."
"Yeah? Isn't that something? Because I was thinking, and I thought that if we could stop Agata Forest from burning to the ground, we could save hundreds of lives. But no- you're in a bad mood. I'll be back soon." I started to walk. She didn't bother to follow.
"Burning down?" She asked, confused. "What do you mean burning? By who?" She started to walk up to me.
"I don't know. Nor do I care. But in a dream, I saw that the forest was going to burn. So, I figured that if we could just get the waterspout technique, then we could stop it from happening." She stopped walking.
"A dream?" She scoffed. "Call me when you have something plausible." She said, not even bothering to look at me, once again. She walked back to the place where we slept, and I took it upon myself to run to Sasa Sanctuary.
I was scared. Alone, in the dark, surrounded by monsters, and scared. While we were on our way here, Sasa Sanctuary had been overrun by monsters. And there was only one way in- and that was a route I did not want to take.
But it's not like I had a choice at that point, so I dug. I dug under the fence, all the way to the point where I was blocked by a giant rock. "Perfect." I muttered. I dug further down, the rock staring me down the entire time.
"Need some help, Josh?" I heard a familiar voice say. "Tsumugari!" There was a loud scraping sound, a sword against stone, and then the rock split. I walked forward, the voice talking to me the entire way.
"I figured you'd get lost." It was Amaterasu! "I knew that you couldn't get anywhere without me. But you made it here, so I'll give you that much."
"Why… why did you decide to come?"
"Why wouldn't I? The forest is going to burn down, after all…" Once we met, she gave me a giant hug. "I'm sorry. I've just been a giant jerk ever since Issun left. I just… He left because of me- and it makes me feel like I pushed him away."
"I forgive you. Besides- we wolves have got to stick together. Let's go get the waterspout technique." We dug out of the ground to the hot spring.
"Hey!" A monster screamed, raising his sword. "You aren't allowed in here!"
"You really want to stand between us and the salvation of hundreds of animals? Trust me, you're going to regret that!" I jumped at him. As the walls formed around us, the monsters took their stances.
"You will die!" The monster screamed, jumping at us.
"Fleetfoot!" I screamed, evading his attack. I flung my- Reflector? ( The Reflector is a divine instrument that can only be used by gods or goddesses- me being the god of life, it makes sense) I had a Reflector! I used it to attack him, and I didn't let up until he was cut up so badly he would bleed out by the time it took me to reach into his chest.
Amaterasu was holding her own, but there was a monster sneaking up behind her. "Ink Bullet!" I screamed, putting us in the workshop. I poked a bunch of dots on the enemy and he was quickly eliminated, and meanwhile Amaterasu was clawing away at her enemy.
"That was pretty good, if I do say so myself." I said after Amaterasu had finished.
"You weren't too bad yourself!" She exclaimed. We walked on our way to the spring, our friendship and relationship once again rekindled.
Josh: Wow... A lot of stuff happened this chapter.
I'm aware of said progress, fleabag.
Amaterasu: Ugh. I'm still tired.
Well, you can rest until Thursday.
Josh: Ok... I guess I can thank you for that.
Well at least we agree on something. R&R, Favorite, and stay posted! I'm finally back! I hope you guys are having a fantastic day.
