Yes, I support YumaxAstral. Sue me. I own nothing.

Pain. That's all I could feel, a horrible stinging pain.

Footsteps. Someone was approaching. But I can't move. I can't feel my arms or legs. It's like my nerves have simply been cut off from my body. Suddenly everything was shut out and I was floating in a blissful peace.

The next thing I knew, I was laying on something soft. I pulled my mismatched gold and silver eyes open, staring at a blank wall. My back felt like an anvil had been dropped on it and my head was pounding. Where was i?

"Oh, you're awake!" I managed to turn my head, finding a young boy entering, a bowl in his hands.

He had black hair with red bangs and confident red eyes with tannish skin. He wore a plain white shirt and grey pants.

He put the bowl down and approached with a wet cloth, placing it on my forehead. The cool water made me feel cooler.

"You were injured pretty bad," he said with a nervous chuckle, "Good thing you happened to be lying on the route I take home after school. Otherwise, you probably wouldn't even be breathing at this point." The boy looked straight into my eyes. "Oh, yeah! I'm Yuma Tsukumo. What's your name?"

I was silent for a moment, examining him. "…Astral."

He grinned. "Nice to meet you, Astral!" he stood up and walked over to the bow with the cloth, dunking in. "Can you answer me a question Astral?" He turned to me and I felt a chill run down my body as he asked, "You aren't human…are you?"
