**************

When Kenshin wakes up in the morning, he sees everything through a veil of blood.

The blood stains everything. It is on his hands, on his futon, on the walls – everywhere he looks, blood has been splattered. It is a dull red, almost edging on brown. The blood has been spilled, but it never drips to the ground. It stays on, never moving no matter how many times he scrubs his eyes or washes his hands.

Then Kenshin realizes he has to brush his bangs out of his face.

Beyond stupid, but hey, at least I didn't waste that much of your time.
