Chapter 2: The Revealing

Yasoinaba, 3 April 2011

Souji woke up early. It was 7:00 in the morning and it's Sunday. Souji smiled. He would visit his friends secretly. They would be overjoyed. Souji made his way to the bathroom when he heard a voice.

"Hm, Souji Seta, my target…"

Souji turned and he didn't see anyone.

"A boy with full potential. Hm, how interesting. Maybe that's why Master wanted him so badly?"

Souji shouted, "Hey, who are you? Show yourself!"

"Oh, he can hear me? Very interesting indeed." The voice sounded astonished.

"Well, since you can hear me. I better made my way. Sayonara!" The voice disappeared.

Souji frowned.

"So strange."

Hanamura Residence, Yasoinaba, 3 April 2011.

Souji pressed the doorbell in front of him.

"Yes." Someone answered.

Souji pressed the button again and again, grinning. From the look of his face, he was playing a prank with his friend.

The door swung open and a young man could be seen.


He laughed and closed his face with his palm, "Oh, great, now I see Souji in front of me. Must be my imagination."

Souji tapped him on the shoulder, "Can an imagination talk and tapped you?"

Yosuke grinned. "I can't believe it… YOU'RE BAAAAACKKK!!!"

After a small conversation the two best-friends get inside the house. Now, the two boys were in Yosuke's room.

"Dude, you said that you're going to Tokyo." Yosuke said.

Souji shooked his head. "Nah. I cancelled it."

Souji looked around. The picture of their last shot hung on the wall beside Yosuke's bed. While the rest of room was a complete mess.

"Since when you cleaned your room?" Souji looked at his best friend.

"Since you left." Yosuke answered coolly.

Oh My… Souji frowned a little. Messy boy…

Souji looked around, realizing something-- or someone-- was missing.

"Where's Teddie?"

"Oh, I forgot about him. He checked the TV World. He'll be back soon." Yosuke smiled.

Hanamura Residence, 3 April 2011, 3 hours later.

The two boys have played everything they could play. PS2, PS3, Wii, even they got tired and play cards. Yosuke frowned.

"Where did that dumb bear go?" He hissed.

"I don't know." Souji said.

They both looked out the window. Yosuke sighed.

"I'm worried about him…" Souji said, breaking the silence.

"Nonsense. Maybe he went to Nanako's place." Yosuke pulled his cellphone. He pressed some button.

"Hello?" A girl's voice could be heard from the phone.

"Hey, whoa, who are you?" Yosuke nearly shouted.

"Oh. I'm Angel. Is this Souji Seta? I thought your voice is deeper." Angel answered.

"No, this is Yosuke Hanamura, Souji's friend. What are you doing there?" Yosuke asked.

"I'm playing with Nanako. She's alone. I think it's best for me to keep her company."

"Well, I'm glad you're there to keep Nanako safe. Is anybody else there?" Yosuke asked again.

"No. I'm sorry."

"Nah, it's okay. Thanks." Yosuke hung up.

Souji looked at him. "Well?"

Yosuke looked at his friend with worried eyes. "No. He's not there."

Souji frowned. That IS not good news.

"How about Chie, Yukiko?" Asked Souji.

"No. He won't be there. You know they'll kick him out." Yosuke replied.

"We should look out for him. This is not usual." Souji said.

Junes, 3 April 2011

Yosuke ran to Souji in the Electronic department.

"I've looked around," Yosuke panted. "He's not anywhere! I've look for him in the Food Centre, Clothes Centre, everywhere!"

Souji frowned. "He DIDN'T run away again, right?"

Yosuke sighed. "I'll kill him if he does. But, didn't he promised us not to disappear suddenly again, right?"

Souji looked to the TV. "No doubts. He must be in there."

Yosuke gave Souji a katana. "This is for you. I worried something dangerous inside and your glasses," He handed it over to Souji. "I found it on the way back after we fought Izanami."

Souji nodded.

"Let's go."

TV World, Time unknown

"I can't believe it…" Yosuke whispered. Souji eyes grew wider. The TV World was… foggy! It's even worse than before!

"Did… Did you see what I see?" Yosuke gasped. Souji nodded.

They used their glasses and they could see the usual headquarters and somebody was lying in the middle of it. Teddie!

"TEDDIE!" Both of them shouted before they went to their friend's side. Teddie's eyes were closed. His costume torn down to pieces, revealing only his human form. Scratches and bruises covered his body and a very deep wound could be seen in his stomach.

Yosuke trembles. He lifted the poor bear's body and Souji examined his friend's condition.

"Somebody…No…Something injured him. Then, it must stab him in the stomach." Souji whispered.

"He's… Dead?" Yosuke whimpered as he gazed at Souji's eyes deeply.

Souji shooked his head. "No, he's still breathing."

Yosuke looked at Teddie, "Just hang in there little buddy."

Teddie's eyes suddenly fluttered open. He looked at Yosuke, then Souji.

"S… sensei?" he rasped.

"Teddie." Yosuke asked. He smiled a gentle, yet a sad smile.

Teddie struggled to talk. "Something happened here." He choked.

Souji looked at Teddie, "What happened?"

"Sensei, they're here again!" Teddie gasped. "The shadows are back!" Teddie fell to Yosuke's lap before he lost consciousness again.

Souji stood up and looked at Yosuke.

"This is not good. We have to bring him to hospital. His condition is getting worse."

Yosuke carried his bear friend. "Yeah. You… You're right."

Souji and Yosuke made their way to the exit. They don't realize something watching them all this time.

"Ufufufufufu… It will begin soon, Souji Seta...."

Well, like it? I don't think its very good. Thank you for reading!
