Chrissane: Hi! I'm CookieDecor22, or call me Chrissane. This is my first story, so it'll probably be bad...or good.
Nene: I hope there's more good than bad.
Nono: I know, right?
Chrissane: Blood-C is my favorite anime, but I was upset when everyone who was so nice to Saya became mean people. As for the movie, even though I haven't watched the full version of The Last Dark, I might use the new characters from there for future stories as well as the original cast. I might use some antagonists as protagonists and vice versa plus using a lot of daily modern concepts since Blood-C was kind of traditional.
Nene: Although the main character is Saya Kisaragi, there will be slight SayaXFumito and SayaXItsuki, but we all know that Fumito's the bad guy, so maybe Saya will end up by herself. There's not that much romance, but we'll try our best to put a little of it in.
Nono: Anyway, please leave a review!
One: A New Life in a New Town
Saya stared blankly at the remains of her house.
"Father, what's going to happen to us now?"
"Not much," replied Tadayoshi. "Saya, we're not the only victims here. Everyone down this block has had their homes burned down to dust. Some of them even lost a few family members."
It was late at night, almost twelve o'clock midnight, and Saya couldn't imagine how she would survive without her home. The image of the blaze engulfing her house and everything she had in it was gone. Completely gone.
"But what are we going to do now?"
Tadayoshi sighed as he handed an envelope to Saya. "This was from a friend of mine who said that she would be glad to take us in for the time being while our homes are being rebuilt We'll be staying in the shrine of her hometown for the time being. A car will come by soon to pick us up, for it takes about six hours to get there."
Despite being reluctant to leave her home, Saya took the envelope and read over the letter. She angrily stuffed in her pocket and didn't say a word.
"The car's here."
Saya's eyes focused on the beams of light hitting the walls as a car drove by and stopped in front of her and Tadayoshi. The car stopped rumbling, and a man stepped out of the driver's seat.
"Miss Kisaragi, your ride is here."
"My ride?" Saya looked at father and asked, "Father, what's going on?"
"Saya, you'll be going to my friend's house first.I have to stay behind just in case the neighborhood inspectors need information on the fire and such. Now get on the car."
"But Father, where will you be staying?"
"I don't know yet. Until matter here have been cleared up, I can't go with you yet. Just remember. Look for a woman with long, emerald green hair with a plum blossom hair clip."
"Okay, Father. I will."
And that was the last time Tadayoshi saw his daughter. After the chauffeur escorted her into the backseat and drove off, she was gone.
"See you later!"
Saya hung up the phone after a long chat with a friend. She walked downstairs to the kitchen to get a glass of water.
"Saya, how come you're not in bed yet?"
"Sorry, Father! I just finished talking on the phone with someone, and my throat is very thirsty."
"Well, go to bed soon. It's almost midnight."
"Not even! There's still at least an hour or so."
"Yes, Father. Let me finish my water."
Once Saya had finished her glass of water, she still felt pretty thirsty. How long have I been talking on the phone? She went over to turn on the sink, but very little water came out. After a few minutes, there was no water at all.
"Father! There's no water!'
"Might as well use the last bit of water in your cup to brush your teeth."
Saya went to the bathroom with the cup of water in her hands. As she was squeezing toothpaste out of the tube onto her toothbrush, the ground began to rumble.
"Father! What was that?"
"Must be a minor earthquake. Let me go outside and see."
Saya brushed her teeth in fear of what was going to happen. First the water ran out, and now it's an earthquake. Did a water pipe explode and leak? Just as Saya was about to put her toothbrush into her mouth, her father ran back into the house frantically.
"Saya, bad news! The entire block is on fire! Nobody knows when and where the fire started, but there's a huge fire that will be burning our way."
"Fire?" Saya looked out the tiny bathroom window but saw nothing but a dark sky. "There's no fire. Not even a single sign of smoke of bright light."
"I don't care if you don't see a any signs of a fire. There is a fire, and we need to go now."
Tadayoshi left early, leaving Saya behind in the bathroom. As she brushed her teeth, the water faucet began squeaking. What's wrong with the faucet? Is there water? All of a sudden, fire erupted from the faucet, making Saya fall back in horror. This can't be happening. I must be dreaming.
Saya attempted to put out the fire with the glass of water she had, but that only made the fire even worse and more scarlet. Not only that, all the other water faucets in the house began spouting fire as well. Running for her life, Saya quickly ran up to her room to get her sword.
When she opened the door, her room was in a total mess. Fire spread from her window was mysterious open to the shelves by the door. Trails of scarlet fire came after Saya, and in total terror, she ran downstairs as fast as could to get away from them. However, Saya tripped on the last stair, for the fire was able to wrap around her leg like a thick, creeping vine.
"Let go of me!" Saya's struggling only aggravated the fire and caused burn marks on her ankle. Despite the injuries, Saya kept kicking her feet back in forth to let go until she hit the metal hinge of a cabinet door.Blood spilled from her shin, but when it came in contact with the flames, the fire sizzled violently but soon disappeared.
What was it that just happened? I really need to get out of here. Saya's last hope was to charge through the front door, which was partially blocked by fallen burning debris. She succeeded in doing so, but the experience was just too terrifying to recall at the moment. Saya hugged her father tightly as the fire spread through the rest of the block,
No...don't come any closer. I'll stab you to death in the worst way ever.
One step closer, and I won't be so decisive about my next actions. Get the heck away from me!
"Miss Kisaragi, your stop is here!"
Saya woke and sat up from her seat after the chauffeur yelled at her. Thank goodness it was just a dream. She looked around to see a neighborhood similar to her own but with a more modern sense to it.
"Where am I?"
"Welcome to the town of Kiyomizu Shrine. I can only drop you off here."
This wasn't a dream...
Saya took her bags and got out of the car sleepily. It was around midnight when she had got on the car, and right now was around sunrise. Father was right. It does take six hours to get here...maybe even more. Most of the buildings around here were residential units, but what Saya wanted to find was Kiyomizu Shrine.
If only Father had come with me, I'd feel a lot safer, she thought. But I also want to go back to Ukishima as soon as possible. Saya set off by finding the tallest building in the area and walking toward it. The roads didn't look complicated, but getting to that building took a long time.
Eventually, the sun was up high in the sky, yet Saya still hadn't reached her destination. How long do I have to walk until I get there? She took a seat on the sidewalk and took out her thermos of water that the chauffeur gave her. Her right shin was still in pain from the cabinet hinge, but it didn't bleed or hurt as much anymore. I really need to reapply bandages to my wound or it'll get infected. There wasn't much water left, and Saya still hasn't seen anyone around the neighborhoods that she can ask for help from.
"I must be walking around in circles," Saya sighed. "There's no way that a building can still be far away from you no matter how long you walked. What else is in the bag of stuff that the chauffeur gave me?"
Inside the traveler's bag was the thermos, a folder paper with directions written by her father and someone else, possibly the chauffeur, some gummy snacks, and a map. "Finally! Something useful for me to use." She spread the map down on the sidewalk next to her and observed. "There's a theater by the corner, so I'm here, which means the shrine is over-"
Saya looked up to see a young man running toward her and stepped aside. Luckily, she didn't get hurt, but the map she laid down on the ground was in tattered pieces. The area where the theater was on the map was fine, but the location of Kiyomizu Shrine was badly scratched out."
What am I going to do now? My last chances of getting to the shrine is now ruined. Saya squatted down beside the useless map and stared. The young man from earlier walked over to Saya.
"I'm so sorry,. Did I ruin your map by accident?"
"You know, I'd be happy to help you get to where you want to go to make up for what I did. You're not from around here, aren't you?"
"No, I'm not. If you don't mind, can you help me get to Kiyomizu Shrine?"
"Kiyomizu Shrine? Why there?"
"I need to see someone really badly. What's wrong with going to the shrine?"
"N-Nothing. Sure, I'll take you there, since I'm no longer in a hurry. By the way, I didn't get your name."
"My name? Saya Kisaragi."
"Well, good morning to you, Saya. I'm Fumito Nanahara."
And off they went to Kiyomizu Shrine to find the green-haired woman whom Tadayoshi said was his friend...
Chrissane: So what do you guys think? Good? Bad? Long? Short?
Nono: It's just your first chapter, so don't worry.
Nene: The blood and fire thing creeped me out. Where'd you get the idea?
Chrissane: I know it sounds overdone to use blood here, but it's REALLY important to the plot. I'm thinking about putting Furikimono or Saya's swordsmanship here, but blood is our main subject.
Nene: Now I get it. Anyway, there'll probably be more Blood-C fanfics coming this way in the future.
None: Maybe some that don't involve creepy blood accidents.
Chrissane: For now, I'm just trying one fanfic, so leave a review of what you think, and I'll see if I can come up with other stories. Thanks everyone!
