I was walking down the streets of the now dangerous Tidat when I thought I spotted someone I knew from long ago. I thought it strange to find someone I hadn't seen in years on a place like that. Adjusting my glasses I however decided to call out. " sakaki it's that you?". The said man stood still for some seconds as too process the voice that came to his hears. It was a familiar and yet nostalgic voice. He turned around to meet that person who had called him . I saw a young man with him too. I thought it strange " don't tell me. It's his disciple". " it's really you sakaki. Long time no see." You said with a smile as you walked up to them. " Arihara!" he almost yelled surprised
" yes sakaki it's me" I answered tilting my head smiling. It had been years since I saw him or Hongo. We separated ourselves after that test of yami on which Hajime now I sometimes miss that old times together were I would watch and cheer them on karate tournaments or went on those missions. Well as much as I cheered it was not needed but I always had to keep them from creating further trouble. There were also those matches of him against hongo that Hajime refereed I didn't because I'm not a karate user however they were always exciting to watch. I would giggle at the stubbornness of the two and also at the face sakaki made when his sister appeared.
" master sakaki who is she?" the young man asked head turned to his master.
" sorry I'm haven't introduced myself" I began " I'm Arihara Akina sakakis' friend. Nice to meet you lad!".
" my name is Shirahama kenichi nice to meet you too." He said energetically.
" sakaki a disciple I never thought you'd take one" I said grinning
" is it so strange!" he said upset. " oh c'mon it isn't much like you." I answered
" Fine suit you as you wish" really that woman even after years she was the same who could pinpoint a person personality easily . It had been years but there she stood his friend who he hadn't seen for so much time in her usual ponytail, glasses , black tank top ,jeans and boots. " but what are you doing here?" he asked. " good question I could ask you the same" I said crossing my arms. He narrowed his eyes at me " I was working on a special mission." I said hands held up signaling defeat.
" heh! Interpol mission." Kenichi exclaimed." Yes yes now don't yell will you" I nervously said placing a hand on his mouth. I didn't want anyone to hear. " now tell me your story" I asked.
He then told me about his fight with hongo and how miu got kidnapped by jenazad so they were now trying to save her but they had just arrived as result they had no info. I heaved a tiresome sigh." I see. that is going to be very difficult isn't it?"
" maybe. How about you help?" sakaki bluntly help. Oh well I already had that in my mind but that had to be him . be blunt to ask someone something overly dangerous. I laughed a bit at that I had almost forgotten that bluntness. " master sakaki!" kenichi exclaimed really surprised " what? You were going to help weren't you?"
" yes I was but finding jenazad it isn't easy around here. Do you have some ideas?" I naively asked.
" first find some info" he said making me give them my look that said that's a given.
We walked our way around the suburbs and found a bar. Yes that was his idea of getting info but he wasn't wrong on this country now on civil war many mercenaries gathered in this kind of dump. I watched amazed as kenichi his disciple went ahead to get some information I wanted to go help but sakaki wouldn't let me. " are you sure ?" I asked worried for the younger martial artist. " yeah he'll be find"I made a even more worried visage " c'mon don't make that face" he had seen before that expression.
" master sakaki, arihara-san mission failed. I ask your help now" kenichi said frightened but with energy. " fine now watch carefully" I said reassuringly .
Sakaki and I entered the bar going straight to counter ordering some beers. Accurately he ordered two beers then I followed him to the guy who pointed a gun to kenichi. In my mind I already knew what he was about to do as I shrugged off some comments guys were throwing at me it was as if they had never seen a woman . as he poured the beer on the men head hell broke loose. Men attacking him from everywhere I indeed had gone in with him but it seemed he needed no help at all as I only tackled a man that tried to be sneakier than the others.
" got anything? " I asked when the commotion was over.
" nothing"he said.
As we continued our search we already fought against a lot pencak silat users and as we took a breather the person that was following finally appeared.
" oh! It's a kid " I said amazed
" you were with jihan" kenichi said surprised as well.
" I'm sham. I was the maid of radin tidat jihan." sham said to you and then explained that she knew who had killed jihan.
" that's good to know but if you are here you want something from us" I said as my intuition kicked in . sakakis' and kenichis' head turned to you with a inquisitive expression but I smiled.
" yes I want you to meet someone connected to jenazad" sham explained before guiding you to the old capital ruins.
" not bad to think you'd get this close without let me noticing your presence" sakaki suddenly got your attention " what are you…"but on that same second I also noticed someone's' presence from behind and kenichi was attacked too. The three of us had yet again to fight.
"watch out! if you get hit by this weapons you won't be able to stich it" I said as I dodged a weapon thrust from my opponent. Well it was normal for pencak silat users. After I dodged I could use my opponents' opening and strike with a powerful palm strike paralyzing him.
" c'mon put more will in it , will you!" I began " that test was rather easy." I ended with a smile placing my hands on my hips.
