Hi. Me here. Anyway, I just recently made this fic and wanted to see how well it'd do. It's my first anime fic so please don't be so mean. It's kinda like a try-out thing. If this doesn't work out too well, I'm deleting it.

Let me just say that this kinda follows the York Shin City storyline. So, for those who have seen the whole thing, the fic might contain something you've already seen. And for those who have not seen the whole thing, the fic will contain spoilers.

By the way, keep mind of the following:

Italicized- thoughts/ emphasized words

ooooo- change of scene

I think that's it. So, I hope it's going to be okay and enjoy!

Oh, and before I forget:

Disclaimer: I do not and never will own Hunter X Hunter.

Once again, enjoy!


Fire.

It was such a contradictory thing. It can be most useful object. But just as quickly, it will turn into the most terrible weapon.

Take for example, right now.

A man walked through the walls of flame. Everywhere he looked, his eyes blazed with the flare of the fire. Even the rain could not effortlessly put out the inferno that burned the buildings and corpses surrounding him.

He smirked.

In the midst of everything around him deteriorating into nothing, Kuroro Lucifer smirked.

Quite suddenly, he heard something that was out of place. It was a whimper. He turned his head. There, right in front of him, was a girl. She was seated on the ground, curled into a ball and crying.

Her blond head looked up to reveal the most scarlet eyes Kuroro has ever seen.

Interesting, the leader of the Genei Ryodan thought. He drew near the little one.

The girl's eyes widened but she did not move. She just stared at him with those crimson orbs.

"O-onichan?" she whispered softly when he was face to face with her.

Kuroro bent on one leg. He smiled and held out a hand.

ooooo

Years later…

The same man stood in front of twelve people. "Regarding tomorrow's underground auction," he spoke clearly. "The target for us, the Spider, is," he paused. The members of the infamous band of thieves and murderers known as the Genei Ryodan listened attentively to their boss. "Everything. Steal everything that goes on auction."

"Are you serious, Danchou?" one of them, Ubougin, said. "The Underground auction is approved by all the Mafia around the world. If we take any action, all the Mafia around the world, will become enemies of the Spider!"

"Are you scared?" Kuroro inquired when he started shaking.

Although the big one was indeed trembling, it was not with fear but with anticipation. "I'm really excited! Give us our order, Danchou… right now!" he demanded.

"I now order you… to kill them all."

Ubougin laughed. His loud tone carried throughout the entire abandoned building.

Kuroro smiled and turned his back on them.

"What do you think?" he said to what appeared to be nothing but shadows.

There was a giggle and the one hiding behind the wall showed herself. "I've never seen Ubo-kun so pleased."

"Would you like to join in the fun?"

She smiled at him. "Fun. I'd like that."


It's short, yeah. It's a prologue of some kind. I promise the next chapters to come will be longer.

Later!
