"There we go: The Legendary Shrine of the Sword. It's strange, though. Nobody's here."

"Is this the one, though? We've been searching for, like, ten years now."

"Shaddup. I say this is the one, and you know better than to question what I say, dumbass."

Two men. Two different views on the topic of justice and truth. Two goals. One final battle to determine the future that would come to pass.

"But... But you said the same thing last time around."

"That was last time. This time, I've got leads."

"Didn't you have leads the last time as well?"

Only one could survive.

"You. Shut your trap. We're gonna be going in. I want all of you idiots to be careful. There might be traps or something."

"Yes, sir."


"What now, boss?"

"I got a whiff of something nasty. There's some low S-Level bastard in there."


"Er, the sword, boss?"

"Couldn't be. The sword's a tool, like a magnifying lens, you know? It magnifies the power you already got. There's somebody in there."

But what if, in those final hours, something happened? What if both of them died?

"We're going in. Stay on your toes, those of you who have toes."

"Aye, boss."

Then, friends, then you got yourself something there.

"Er, boss?"


It was the year 1993...

"No traps. No S-Level."

"No S-Level? Where's the sword?"

...And life was good for Yusuke Urameshi.

"Right here, boss."

"Hand it over."

"Sure thing, boss."

...Except for the fact that trouble was stirring.

The figure unwrapped the sword slowly, and then froze. He threw the sword to the center of the room.

"Get back, guys. We've got an A-Level here. It's the sword."

"Told you, boss."


A mist rose around the sword, and slowly took form...

Teaser: Heart of Sword

This one been done before? No? Didn't think so. Anyway, I'm honestly not going to continue this, so if anyone wants to pick it, feel free. Actually, I'm hoping somebody will pick it up, if it's simply because it's a shame to see a good idea go to waste.
