記憶数珠0部"..." -Ceon ClixxStoryChapter One:Rebirth
Why do birds sing? Why does the sun stand so high in the mid summer sky? As the day rolled on passed the morning of a day no one would remember, there was one whom was going to make it a day to remember. Not for the world to remember it, but for himself instead. The clouds over head flew by as down below making his way across the grass of the fields outside of the Onmitsukido, a young man wearing a Shinigami uniform with the top open revealing a bare chest, walked alone as he had no destination. His white hair blew in the wind as he quietly scanned the land with his blue eyes. His expression was that of which showed no hope. As if he was there with no hope of life, love, and only had despair. He walked on as he came across a body of water on the outside of the Onmitsukido training grounds, to a bare field. Only grass dancing in the wind with a body of water in the center existed in the training fields. The man making his way to the water stopped at the shore line looking down seeing the ripples caused by the wind, bounce off the shoreline as they made their small crashing sounds. Was this an example of cause and effect? The cause of the wind caused the water to wave and the effect was met by the halt of the land? Seems every being must face this fate, as they are born of one cause, and the effect will lead them to an end, like that of a wave...
The man sat down at the shore line as he landed in the grass of the earth, under the blue sky surrounded by floating clouds. Large sighs left his mouth as he seemed to carry a burden in his mind. The individual was no other than Ceon Clixx-Kimura. He was known as a Memory Rosary, a being that never existed, and with the power to end all existence. What the Memory Rosary didn't understand however is, how can he even "Not Exist" if he holds a past? There are too many things that this one didn't understand as existence it's self is even trivial. As Ceon thought to himself, he looked to his left as next to the shoreline, there were some red and dark red flowers near him. There were only two, and they were alone here, fighting to survive as the sat in the wind awaiting their fate as well. Ceon didn't know much on nature, but he knew those flowers, as they were called Anemone's, or in other words, Flowers of no Hope. These in a way, were something of a little irony to Ceon as he felt a large wave of hopelessness right now. Ceon leaned over as he picked up the flower and examined it close. What was his meaning? Why was he reborn into this world over and over, only to face despair again and again?
What was the meaning of a Memory Rosary?Chapter Two:
The night of an unknown year in Japan was where the events of a new note in history took place. The screams of a woman in pain could be heard all through the house as that woman appeared to be giving birth to a child. Outside of the room a small girl only 3 years of age and a mother with a small baby boy in her arms accompanied by an old man stood waiting. The old man was the Mayor of the town, and grandfather of the child to be born in the other room. The mother was husband of the doctor in the other room helping give birth to the newborn. Finally, as the screams stopped, the cries of a child was heard. This child was the last of the 3 legends known a few centuries later as the Memory Rosaries. The child born was known as Senna Kimura. Her mother's name was Tomaya Kimura and the father was known as a legendary Samurai known as Elandor Kimura. The mayor of the town and grandfather to Senna was also the father of Tomaya and named Gandou Kimura. The doctor in the room and his family outside was known as the Clixx family. The father was named Ishurashi Clixx, a legendary doctor around the land in medicines and health, and his wife was Ushia Clixx, his assistant Nurse and mother of two wonderful children. The 3 year old girl is known as Claire Clixx and their son still a baby in the arms of his mother was Ceon Clixx.
Gandou Kimura was a five foot, three inch man about sixty-seven years of age, and had no hair with brown eyes. He led the town, and kept them safe with the help of his twenty-six year old son-in-law Elandor. Elandor stood at six feet flat and was a legendary samurai. His power with the blade was very well known, and he led the dojo in the town. His style with the blade made him well renown and famous with all fighters around town. No one could miss him as he had long black hair that went down to his waist in a ponytail and always wore a black samurai outfit. His wife was a very loving, yet mysterious woman, who's respect was hardly ever earned. Tomaya had purple hair and tan eyes, and was twenty two years old standing at about 4 feet and 11 inches. This woman was also a famous individual, yet only within the town, as she was a master of the dark arts. Her husband was a master of Samurai, as she was master of ninja arts. The only ones whom had her respect was her husband, father, and the Clixx family. The Clixx family earned Tomaya and her families respect after their care for them for so long kept them healthy and alive. The family under the Kimura's was strong and sturdy, as for Senna, she could have been brought up very admirably...
The Clixx family was one with all smiles however, and a peaceful one. The father Ishurashi Clixx, became a doctor and worked his life to save others no matter the cause or effect. He didn't care what happened, he only wished to save lives and grant others a second chance. He was twenty nine years old and had short red hair and brown eyes standing at six feet three inches. His dreams of saving lives was one shared with his loving wife Ushia Clixx. She was twenty four years old with long white hair and blue eyes standing at five feet one inch. She was a nurse for her husbands work, but her bigger job was being a mother to her two small children, Claire and Ceon. Claire was the older sister being two and a half years older that Ceon her younger brother. Claire had long red hair and reddish eyes. She was a cheerful young girl, and very loving to her mother and family. The small brother is Ceon Clixx, and very quiet. He never cried at birth and made very few noises. His connection with his mother was a close one as Ushia loved to hold him all the time. Ceon had white hair and blue eyes, and his affinity to everything around him was strong and his senses were very strong. Overall, the Clixx family and Kimura family were tired together, and shared a stunning fate after the birth of these three children.Chapter Three:
After Senna's third birthday, her parents were called into combat. It would seem that the fourth feudal war was beginning, and the close by empire that was needing to keep in power needed soldiers. Senna's parents being very skilled in combat were needed and they answered the call with their subordinates. Together the parents of Senna kissed their daughter as they made their way into the battlefield together, and left their daughter in the hands of the Clixx family. In this time, Ceon and Senna got to know each other very well, and became very close friends. Claire being five years of age loved playing with Senna and Ceon together as they grew a bond in the times of war. Not long after Senna's parents left, injured people began to travel into the town, and the Clixx family took them in to care for them. They helped all soldiers they saw passing as Ceon's and Claire's parents only wanted to save those who wished for a second chance. The injured flowed through as the war carried for years. Senna's parents sent letters of their travels in war, and Senna patiently awaited for them to come back. Finally at age 8 for Ceon and Senna, 10 for Claire, there was word that the empire that protected the town was under fire and a lot of damage, while the current emperor lost his life. The Mayor did his best to keep his citizens under check as there was much damage to be done...
Finally, a Feudal Lord walked through town as he noticed soldiers of his enemies being cared for. This was unacceptable and he would not tolerate this kind of action. The Lord looked around demanding the names of the ones who were curing the enemies. He threatened the lives of the entire town if he did not get the names, and of course they revealed themselves. Ishurashi stood forward as he accepted responsibility. Ushia being the very loving wife she was, wasn't going to let her husband stand alone in a time like this. Ushia looked towards the town Mayor as he knew what was going on. Ceon and Claire stood by the Mayor as they looked down seeing his parents confront the Lord. Finally, before the eyes of the children, they watched as their parents were stricken down and killed. Claire screamed in cries of despair as Ceon stood in silence. Did his parents really die for speaking? Ceon thus led himself into a world of silence, as he refused to speak ever again. Senna also seeing this beside Ceon kept close to him, wishing to relief his pain. Little did Senna know that far away, her parents were killed together in the same town while fighting the war. Senna got word of it and also the realization of loss became stricken of the despair of war.
From the loss of war, the three children now orphaned were taken in by the Mayor, Senna's Grandfather, and raised to be strong individuals. Years went by as by the age of 16 for Ceon, 15 for Senna, and 18 for Claire, the children looked to be of age, and on a path. Ceon was in the dojo's of Senna's parents learning the Samurai and Ninja arts together, as Senna learned to be a caretaker for Ceon as he would always come home pain stricken and sore. Claire was a waitress at a nearby restaurant as she worked very well, and she was known as the most beautiful girl in the land. The bond of the 3 grew stronger and stronger as they worked together to do what they believed was what their parents wished. Not longer after Senna's 16th birthday, Ceon and Senna realized their love for each other and became very close. It was as if the time of war, was behind them and they could move on from their ruined past, but of course it was all about to catch them sooner than they expected.Chapter Four:
It was realized one day after the two were playing in the woods, that they were closer than others expected.When the two were alone one night eating dinner, their hands touched and their smiles lit the room. Then ended up laying together in the main room of the house together and were together the entire night. The next morning, Claire entered the house to see her brother asleep against a wall and Senna was laying against him as they were very close. Claire and the Mayor then pestered the two and gave them a hard time, but then Ceon and Senna stood there with a smile holding hands proving that they loved each other and were willing to fight any challenge. The Mayor in Senna's parents place accepted the joining of the two and thus the love of the children had begun. One night out at a creek, Senna and Ceon were together, but in a shock of the night, Ceon spoke to Senna saying what he thought of her, and how he appreciated them being together for so long. Senna was awed that he had even spoken, and every time he said her name, she smiled in bliss. That night, the two shared the bed together to sleep, in innocence.
The next morning, Senna got up early to cook the two breakfast, and Ceon stayed in bed. Finally after Ceon awoke, he joined Senna downstairs, but something happened. Ceon was stricken by Senna's sudden flow of lust and the two went back to their room where they made the union of true lovers. Ceon and Senna shared hands after that as the two knew from there on, they would be together forever. Ceon had left Senna to go to the dojo's for the day and assist in training and work. Ceon was the assistant sensei for being the top in class in both town dojo's and he even taught street kids basic self defense for not being able to afford the classes. Ceon was a master of ninja arts as well as samurai combat. In the day he was top of the class, and at night, he was never seen as he pulled off perfected assassination techniques. The former masters of the dojo's were none other than Senna's parents and after the war took them, their assistants took over the dojo's while in time Ceon eventually became top student. Ceon won many battles, and when it came to dojo battles, he was undefeated against other students. Senna was a caretaker as she always tended to Ceon's wounds and kept the house clean at all times. Claire paid for a lot with her job as a waitress and it seemed like they were doing wonderful.
On that day Ceon was out at the dojo's Senna left the house to meet up with her love and join him for the walk home with food. She ran into Ceon outside the dojo as he was getting ready to return home, when Senna confronted him and his smile was wider than the horizon itself. Ceon noticed how Senna wished to have a picnic and Ceon openly joined her, as the two went to their favorite place in the land. It was a field with large grass that were overlooked by the mountains. The orange sky looked down upon the two as they shared a meal in silence. One last time, the two made passionate love where they stayed and thus marked the place that would be known by the two for all eternity. After a few hours, the two walked home under the night sky, but didn't expect what happened next. Suddenly Ceon read the intent to kill by another being. Throwing Senna down, and blocking a large attack, Ceon read a bloodthirsty motive by another and quickly retaliated. At that moment, Ceon fought off and killed 3 thugs, till he noticed Senna was grabbed by another and being treated very rudely as they touched her in places that raged Ceon. Ceon quickly jumped on the man stabbing him numerous times killing him. Ceon just saved Senna, but due to his carelessness, Ceon forgot about one of the attackers, and Ceon was knocked 7 feet with broken ribs. He was about to be killed, when then Senna saved him by putting a blade through his chest. Senna had stained her hands with the blood of another for her love. Ceon was angered in that Senna stained herself and he went to calm her mind. Suddenly many more men appeared and spotted their dead allies near Senna and Ceon. They were about to kill the two, when suddenly Claire appeared starring down the men with an angered look. Claire then whistled as men from all over the district came and chased off the soldiers that were there to kill Ceon and Senna. Claire then had Ceon and Senna taken home and cleaned up and cared for. Their experiences were too harsh for their minds, and Claire was upset to think they were open up to this kind of world.Chapter Five:
A week later, Ceon went out and immediately he was met by the clouds overhead. The dark gray clouds told Ceon to be weary of this day, as it was going to be one of threat and it told Ceon to be cautious. Ceon was slowed that day as his ribs were broken and he was taking his time to move everywhere. Ceon slowly walked through the market on the far side of town as he wished to find something the western civilization called an 'engagement ring'. He heard that a ring like that was meant to tie the lives of two together for a long time. Ceon walked as he came across a shop with trade goods from the western world and he was inspired to buy one of the rings there, as he noticed one that was perfect. It was a silver ring and had a special rock on it, as in the shade it flashed purple like Senna's hair, but in the light it shinned a red, green, and blue. This color stuck Ceon and he paid his savings for a VERY long time to purchase this amazing ring. Sadly enough, on the way home, something terrible was happening. The shops and everything was closing quickly as people ran into their houses in fear. Ceon then noticed an old man run by, as he yelled to Ceon saying "Get out of here now! The Evil Lord is back!". Without thinking Ceon dropped the umbrella and fighting the pain in his side ran home. He had to get them to safety and get them out of danger immediately! Ceon limped and finally returned to see the house broken into. Ceon's heart beat quickly as he didn't know what to do at this moment. Ceon ran through the door seeing the mayor dead at the ground with blood surrounding his body. Where was Senna and Claire!? Ceon killed the first guard at the door decapitating him and keeping his head. Ceon was going to give hell to all of them.
Finally Ceon threw the head of the man he killed into his room as he killed one of the other men in the room. He noticed Claire and Senna in there as fear had struck their hearts. At first they felt they were saved, till they noticed a blade stick through Ceon's chest. Ceon looked back as it was the one who killed his parents and started this whole war, the Feudal Lord. Ceon tried to slit his throat by throwing his blade back and getting him with the kunai in his left hand, but he missed grazing his cheek. Ceon then laid on the ground unable to move as his broken rib and stab wound was just too much to bare. Ceon was lifted before Claire and Senna, as the feudal lord stuck his sword through Ceon's heart killing him. Ceon fell to a pool of his own blood as the ring he had bought for Senna fell by Senna's feet. The last words that escaped Ceon's mouth were "I love you...". Claire ridden by rage attacked the Lord, but he swatted her away without effort, knocking her out against the wall. He then ordered the house to be burnt down, as Senna laid next to Ceon, accepting the flames to take her body and end her life to follow behind Ceon and stay with him.
In another world, Ceon stood along a dark world, where below him he saw clouds. The rage of the clouds was like that of an angered god. Ceon noticed after looking down that people began to walk passed him, as he noticed they were all the people of their town. Ceon thought that the town must be destroyed, and Ceon was completely disappointed. It would seem he couldn't protect Senna and Claire after all. Ceon then fell back as he accepted the clouds around him, and he was taken away by the power of the storm. Slowly, his existence was removed and his name was never heard again. Senna and Claire eventually disappeared as well, but Ceon didn't know how it was done. This was the moment in which the three Memory Rosaries were born.Chapter Six:
Centuries later, on the grassy fields near the mountains, a bolt of lightning struck down as in it's place a boy laid there wearing a Shinigami uniform with the top wide open. The boy stood up as he had no idea of where he was or what was going on. All he knew is that he had something called a Zanpaktou and had the ability to kill. His right arm had a red ribbon tied around it and it made Ceon remember the face of someone who wore it. Ceon made his way walking around, and as he exited the field he saw a large city before him. It was Karakura town and Ceon has never seen such a big area. Ceon made his way to the town, but before he could make it, he was confronted by another one that looked like him but different. It was a Captain of Soul Society as it would appear that Ceon was to be captured. What was going on anyways!? Ceon ran as fast as he could, dodging all attempts of capture by this Shinigami captain. This was something he was scared of, and had to escape immediately. Before Ceon could get far, the Visoreds immediately captured him and tired to take him in, but since Ceon was an escape artist, he managed to get away easily. Before Ceon could get far, he was then tricked into Soul Society as he was locked up and with held in the 5th Barracks. Ceon was cared under by Captain Shinji and Vice Captain Aizen in the 5th. Ceon didn't wanna be there and he wanted to be free, and know why he was to be captured. Ceon then noticed as a nearby window had oak leaves blow by. They reminded him of someone he wanted to see again, and he needed to get out. Ceon pulled his Wakizashi, as without saying a single word, his clones appeared and he broke out of the 5th Division. Ceon managed to escape and get back into the real world as he returned to where he awoke. There was a girl, waiting for him. It was no other than Senna, and she turned to see Ceon. Ceon and Senna stared at each other for a moment, as suddenly they were under pain. Memories of the two suddenly entered their minds, as they were being reminded of who they were. What was going on!?
Immediately they were attacked once again, and Ceon quickly grabbed Senna as the two made their ways away from the attackers. Ceon and Senna managed to dodge the attacks from the Shinigami and Visoreds and made their way to the mountains. From there they believed they would be freed from this chase. Why were they being chased anyways? Their answers were soon answered as someone took hold of Ceon and Senna and they couldn't move. From the shadows walked in Claire with eyes red as fire. She was fueled with rage as she wished to use them as tools. She knew what they all were and wanted to do what they were created to its use. Claire opened the Vally of Screams as she sent a message to all beings of power in the area. Claire's message was for them to fight for the power of existence. Whomever wins will gain the tool of power that can end all life.
As Ceon and Senna were tied down by Claire, they couldn't move, and were helpless before her as Claire watched all beings battle below her. One being tried to attack Claire, but she laughed as her power was that of the Blood Queen. She controlled all forms of Spiritual Pressure and could bend, alter, and change all of it to what she wished. Truly no one could touch Claire and it was impossible. Ceon with the assistance of Senna managed to escape and he was about to run for it, but the fact that Claire was doing terrible things, kept Ceon behind. He had to help defend everyone and protect Senna. Ceon summoned the power of his blade as his clones appeared and he attacked Claire with all he had. At first Claire had the advantage, crushing all the clones over and over, but since Ceon had the ability to substitute, be managed to evade all of Claire's deadly grabs. Senna summoned the power of win to assist Ceon in the battle with Claire, and it was apparent that Claire was just too powerful for the two. Finally Ceon with his rage unlocked bankai with the assistance of Kaizaken as he was furred with his older sisters intentions of despair. Ceon attacked holding nothing back against Claire, as he summoned an Omega circle below Claire locking her inside it. Senna screamed out for all beings in the Valley of Screams to get out, and now. Ceon begged for Senna to leave too, but she wished for Ceon to end all three of them from being weapons. Ceon understood as his range of the Omen attack widened the entire Valley of Screams. Ceon unleashed his energy and thus destroyed the Valley and obliterating Claire, as well as himself and Senna. As the light of Ceon's attack took them from that world, Claire smiled at Senna and her brother, thanking them from that terrible fate of despair. Senna and Ceon were close together as they kissed while they were removed from life once again, only to be reborn once again, later on.Chapter Seven:
It was only a matter of 7 years since Ceon shut the Valley of Screams and rid the world of his sister, and already there were signs of a mysterious power being born, but instead of it being born on earth, it was born in the barracks of the 5th Division. Rising from an unknown slumber, Ceon stood in the middle of the Soul Society barracks. His memory unknown, and mind completely dizzy, Ceon looked around seeing only the world of Soul Society around him. Without much time to even realize the situation, Ceon was attacked by a shinigami. This made Ceon not only confused but scared as to why he's being attacked. The Shinigami that attacked him assumed him to be an impostor and thus was going to arrest him. Ceon sticking to his instinct fought back, and of course Ceon's power was overwhelming to the Shinigami. The rest of the Division that was with the attacking Shinigami, joined in the attack. Ceon was just too much for them, as he summoned his Shikai state and showed them all his power. Ceon was beginning to overwhelm every single shinigami, but was then met by someone interesting. The captain of the 5th Division appeared and he was someone whom Ceon did not recognize. Ceon was not going to go easy on this individual, and immediately the fight between Ceon Clixx-Kimura and Captain Shinji began. Their powers were matched, and Ceon was beginning to enjoy himself. Ceon then was going to hold no mercy, till the fight was stopped by Yoruichi, Captain of the 2nd Division. Yoruichi getting an eye for the mysterious Shinigami, spoke with General Yamamoto and managed to get Ceon placed in the Onmitsukido under her watch. Ceon was a hero known in Soul Society, but he didn't know that as his memories were gone. After 2 years within the Onmitsukido, Ceon was given the Commander of the 4th Squad in the Onmitsukido, which is the training division. Ceon was then in charge of training new recruits and he watched over all new trainees. It was then realized that not many people were passing, as Ceon saw many flaws in the testing for the Onmitsukido. Ceon made changes and thus to become a member of the Onmitsukido was nearly impossible. Only few people passed. In the time of Ceon's work under the 4th Squad, he watched as Yoruichi disappeared and, Soi Fon took her place. She wasn't all that different, but less of a sense of humor. Either way, where did Yoruichi go?
Ceon was really asserting his power, and also within this time, he learned a lot of new tricks. With Ceon's authority within the 4th Squad, Ceon learned that he apparently the former commander of the first Onmitsukido was on earth. Taking no hesitation, Ceon departed for earth in search of these individuals. In no time, Ceon found the Urahara Shop. He went to knock on the door, but before he could even knock, he was tackled at an alarming speed by someone he recognized. It was Yoruichi, and she remembered Ceon quite well. Ceon was Yoruichi's latest student and also, her favorite along the lines of personality. Ceon was always quiet and the fact he could summon a Shikai and all that was a mystery to Yoruichi and she loved it. In no time, Ceon was taken in by Urahara and Yoruichi and taught many interesting things. Also, he was informed that he's been alive once before. Ceon being completely astounded by this listened as apparently he had risen with two others they did not know about and were known as Memory Rosaries. Ceon listened as he was told he is a being that wasn't meant to exist and yet he's sitting there before them. Kaizaken then manifested and told them both to halt the history lesson as if Ceon takes in too much information at one time, it'll cause his mind to implode. Ceon then without thinking went to Yoruichi with a few requests. Ceon was then trained in the arts of Shunko and all secrets of the Onmitsukido. Ceon within no time learned all hand to hand arts and became a master of not only speed but as well as hand to hand. Ceon then trained with Urahara, and was trained in tool works, strategy, and his Zanpaktou. Ceon didn't understand all of what Kaizaken could do, and in no time Urahara got that all into his head. Ceon with a smiling farewell, bid them adieu and went on his way.
One day within the Onmitsukido, Ceon was approached by someone that was familiar to him, Vice-Captain Tsubine. Ceon smiled as he was approached with an odd request. A Vice-Captain wished to be trained by him. Ceon just leered evily as nearly no one has ever passed a test of him before, and for a Vice-Captain to step forward made this an intersting moment. Ceon accepted the Vice-Captain's request and the training began. Tsubine wished to learn about Shunko, and it would appear that now there were only 3 Shinigami that could use it, and Tsubine wanted to use it as well. It took about 9 months, but eventually Ceon successfully passed on the teachings of Shunko and Shunpo and was very proud of his teaching ability. Only drawback was that Tsubine got one hell of a beating along the way. In the end, Ceon had successfully taught someone the abilities of the Onmitsukido, and Ceon didn't mind at all. The fact he could do it made him happy really, and when he learned that his General, Soi Fon was also close in a relationship with Tsubine, it made Ceon laugh in the back of his mind. After Tsubine's graduation from Ceon's teachings, Soi Fon approached Ceon with a request. She wished to take some time off and live the life of a normal Soul with Tsubine, and in that time, Ceon was appointed to the 2nd Division Captain and Onmitsukido General. From this day forward, began Ceon's 80 year reign in the Onmitsukido and led it to it's peak in power and performance.
Ceon lead the Onmitsukido with precession and power. They were a very powerful and proud group of individuals, and they were ones never to be looked down on. During this time, to become a member of the Onmitsukido was nearly impossible. To be in the 2nd Division Ceon didn't mind as they were more staff work than warriors, but in the Onmitsukido, it was a whole other story. Only those whom were very keen with their hand to hand combat, speed, or swordsmanship were allowed to try for a place in the epic ranks of the Onmitsukido. What would happen is, Ceon would get a letter from the Academy stating they have a student with great power, and with that, they would be transferred over to the 4th Squad for tryouts and training. While Ceon was under leadership, he left his 4th Squad rank open as he wished to continue to training of the new ranks, but since he was in charge now, things were going to get MUCH more challenging. There was three parts to this challenge. There was an entrance exam, that if you failed, you were thrown back into the Shinigami Academy for reassignment, and if you passed you went to the second part, which was the training and classes. To pass them you needed an A in the class, as B's and lower were unacceptable in a place where your life is always on the line. If failed, you were thrown into the 2nd Division and those that passed the 2 year class finally moved to the final part, the final exam. If passed you were a well respected member of the Onmitsukido. If you failed, you were put into the 11th Division as they would take a powerful member like one, but the Onmitsukido one allows those whom are top notch.
The Entrance Exam was some that made people wonder, 'WHY DOES THIS EXIST!?'. It was something indeed, as it was an obstacle course. One Ceon took a lot of pride in. The course consisted of millions of traps, tricks, and penalties. Many people would fail here, and if failed then you were removed. To pass this test you have to be on your toes, and very quick to move. Basic Kido knowledge, and swordsmanship was needed while speed and hand to hand was a MUST! You had to be on top of your game with your reflexes otherwise you'd be done. One passing that test, lucky individuals got to be blessed with the combat expertise of the Onmitsukido. 2 years of training lessons as well as skills work were worked on. Individuals were graded on at least 5 different types of Martial Arts, strategic skills, and shadow operations. A's were a must, as if anyone got a B, they would have to work harder on the others for their final grade to become an A. If anyone got a C on anything, it was an automatic fail. The Strategic Skills portion of the class gave people an opportunity to learn work with Kunai, Shurikens, and many different ninja tools. This was something to work with a lot, as they assisted in assassinations and missions very well. Shadow Operations were team building skills, and were to see how well people worked in the night. This is where most people failed. After all that, if you were lucky you get to the Final, and people never accepted the final. 5 minutes of survival combat against Ceon. You didn't have to defeat him, you just had to survive. Ceon didn't go Shikai nor Bankai, instead he just did his basic hand to hand combat. Many people would never even get to this part because after the Entrance exam weeded out the weaklings, the Courses would remove the rest as they were nearly impossible. People that did fail however were given a chance to retake all the tests, if there was a fire in their spirit that proved to Ceon they had what it takes.
Not many people passed in Ceon's 80 years. There were VERY few individuals that would make it to the Final, and it was VERY rare for someone to pass the final. Ceon's team of instructors were not nice, and they all trained all people to the best of their abilities. One person to pass Ceon's total test was someone Ceon liked for their perseverance. Their name was Kagetora. He was a very quiet and stern individual, but he had potential. He failed Ceon's entrance test the first time, but begged to come back. Ceon allowed it, and on the second run he made it through. During the course work he excelled GREATLY in the Martial Arts section, and his Strategic Skills were great, but his Shadow Ops needed work, as his team building skills were a bit off. He failed a few times, but Ceon allowed him to retake till he made it to the Final. In the Final, Kagetora failed 4 times, but like they say, 5th time is a charm, as Kagetora actually managed to survive for 3 minutes with Ceon. He was one of the very rare few that actually became an Onmitsukido member during Ceon's reign. This was something that earned him instant respect and proved to many that his power is something to fear, as if can survive for 3 minutes against Ceon, who knows what else he can do! The next part was rare, it was the Graduation. Ceon had something very special, as he made pure silver Kunai, and on the back side of the blade was engraved their graduation year, and engraved on the front was "Non-Existent", the same thing engraved on Ceon's Zanpaktou. This was to mean that they aren't seen or heard, and they remove their targets with success and they blend with the shadows. Ceon then takes that beautiful Kunai, and cuts the hand of each graduate making their blood become one with the silver Kunai. They were now comrades with the same blood. From that day forward they will fight side by side, and will always be a team of one. With their blood-stained Kunai, they were then allowed into the barracks of the Onmitsukido for a whole new world and journey into their lives.Chapter Eight:
In about 77 of those years, Ceon had led for 100% mission success, No Casualties, and extreme success upon the lives of all his people. Ceon was noted as one of the greatest leaders in Soul Society history. Meanwhile while doing a personal exercise, Ceon was roaming the forests on the outside of the Onmitsukido training grounds. While on this routine, he came across a small area that caught his eye. It was a beautiful area with a small clear pond, large waterfall, and the clearing from the trees really made it a wonderful spectacle. It was indeed beautiful, but before Ceon could inspect it any closer, there was someone approaching from the east! Ceon pulled a few Kunai and was at the ready for action. Before any violence took over, Ceon was met by a very stunning young woman who looked very familiar! She had long purple hair and tan eyes. She was wearing a wonderful red Kimono and Ceon was completely breath taken. She looked so familiar somehow, yet different. Ceon wasn't paying attention as the woman approached him with a smile. Ceon finally got back to his senses and jumped back on alert. He can't allow the General of the Onmitsukido be caught off guard. The woman presented herself with no intent of fighting and baring no arms. Ceon put away his Kunai and listened to the woman speak. Her name was Chika Misaki and she lived in the woods outside of his domain and was never spotted. She invited him in for some tea and Ceon nodded following her. Who was she exactly and why was she out in the woods in the first place, and what bothered Ceon even more was, why did she look so familiar?
Inside the cave, Chika presented some tea to Ceon and asked whom he was. She learned very fast that Ceon was a mute and couldn't speak. Chika not minding at all, decided to tell Ceon about her as to kill the moment of silence between them. Ceon listened as he learned that to keep herself safe she made a barrier that hid the presence of her and her home. The barrier however broke when Ceon entered the area, as his power was so intense the barrier crumbled. Chika also told Ceon that she had a Zanpaktou and a spirit to accompany her. The spirits name was Rinsei and was a manipulator of nature and life. This made Ceon very intrigued as her power was indeed a rare one. Ceon listened to Chika about her life, well being, and everything. He was really surprised on how she managed to live in that cave for a long time and make her own house inside. It was indeed very surprising, so Ceon being fair, introduced Chika to Kaizaken, his Zanpaktou spirit and translator. Kaizaken told Chika that Ceon is the General of the Onmitsukido, and that he was looking around when he came across her home. He didn't mean to disturb her, and apologized if he was any nascence at all. Chika blushing told them that Ceon was nothing of the sort and he was welcome whenever. Ceon liked this person, in not only that she looked so familiar, but she was nice! Ceon wanted to play a little game, and Kaizaken wasn't very fond of the situation. Ceon was literally at peak performance, following all rules of the Onmitsukido and doing so wonderfully! The most important rule of all was, no bonds, as they can hinder with performance.
Ceon was about to break his own rule, as Ceon requested to play a little hide and seek with Chika. Ceon began to count as Chika ran off and hid. This was quite the cute play between Shinigami, one the master ninja, and the other an unknown outcast. After 30 seconds, Chika hid well, and Ceon went off to find her. Being honorable, Ceon decided he wouldn't use tricks, but instead look for her the old fashioned way, using his survival skills. In no time, he noticed the broken twigs and sticks that lead Ceon to find Chika's location. Chika tried to run laughing, but Ceon ran after her, and as he did, he tripped. When he landed, his eyes opened to see his head in Chika's chest. Ceon's face was redder than anything as he didn't expect this to happen, but what made things worse was that Chika has been lonely for so long. Her response to Ceon was, "Ceon-kun, if you want, we can... Go back to my place... And..." Ceon didn't expect such a response that he jolted up and hid behind a tree. He was so shaken up he didn't know what to think fro that statement. He stood there for a moment, as veins began to wrap him around the tree. He just watched as he was now stuck to the tree, not knowing where it came from, as Chika came around the tree with red on her face but an innocent smile. Ceon almost forgot, she can manipulate nature, and she didn't want Ceon to leave her, at least not yet. Ceon understood her request and instead offered her a different idea, as Kaizaken spoke on Ceon's behalf to offer a home in Soul Society in the Onmitsukido. Chika was at first nervous, but she decided she wanted to follow Ceon. Ceon understood and went back with her to help her pack. Inside Ceon looked for something to carry her clothing, and went to the dresser not thinking, and when he opened the top drawer, he was introduced with her very scandalous underwear. Ceon didn't move, and he felt so embarrassed, and Chika thought Ceon was having perverted thoughts of her. Ceon again, received a statement he didn't expect when she said "If you want you can see me wear them..." Ceon immediately dropped everything and ran outside. Chika can pack her things, and Ceon would patiently wait, as this was already too awkward. After an hour, Chika was ready to go with Rinsei and they departed to the Onmitsukido.
In no time, Chika to used to the appearance of the Onmitsukido, and Ceon got her paperwork finished to become a real Shinigami under their code. Ceon personally trained the young woman in the ninja arts and within 3 months she managed to pass all training which really stunned Ceon. He was so proud that Chika's desires to follow Ceon made her do her best! The one thing Ceon would never forget was making Chika his assistant and Vice-Captain, and within no time, she was very respected. One night Ceon returned from a very challenging mission as he was scarred and torn up. Chika took him in and cleaned his wounds and cared for him the best she could. That night, she laid Ceon in his bed, and at one point, ended up sleeping with him, staying by his side all night. When Ceon awoke to see Chika he was startled, but didn't want to move for some reason, the fact she was so close made him feel warm, and because she looked so much like someone he once knew before. He however didn't notice the fact he was naked and only in bandages, and Chika slept without clothing. Ceon realized much when he felt her skin rub against him, and he freaked out, jumping out of bed and covering himself up. Chika awoke with a very blushed look, but didn't mind as she revealed to Ceon that day, she wanted to tell Ceon something. Ceon listened, but she said it needed to be later in front of her house. Ceon understood as he got dressed. That afternoon, Chika and Ceon met in the forest in front of her house, and Chika held her arms out with a very welcoming look on her face. She looked into Ceon's eyes and he looked back curious of what she was going to say. She then said to Ceon that she loved him, and when she did, a flash of someone ran through his head. The person had purple hair that was up in the back, held by a red ribbon, and tan eyes. Was it Chika or someone else? Ceon then looked back at Chika and smiled as he spoke to her for the first time in ages, saying he loved her too. But like all happy stories, they come an end at some point, as what happened next shook the world and made them realize the true power of the Memory Rosary...Chapter Nine:
At the moment where Chika and Ceon looked at each other in that forest, something unknown to Ceon had happened causing a mass burst of confusion. In Chika's heart, her inner hollow had risen and caused her to lose control of her body. It would seem that Chika was actually a Visard from the beginning, and had dormant hollow powers waiting for their moment to take control. When Chika said her feelings to Ceon, it caused her to be caught off guard and thus, her inner hollow sprung forward. The large burst of dark rietsu rose, causing a mass alert in Soul Society. All had come out to remove the Hollow threat, only to see Ceon and Chika. The orders were to remove Chika immediately, but Ceon refused to do so. Ceon summoned his Shikai state and defended Chika from anyone that got near, fighting even his own comrades. He didn't want anyone to disrupt her or cause any disturbance. Finally, one of Ceon's most hated enemies appeared. His name was Veral, and this man during Ceon's time had done nothing but ridicule Senna and Ceon whenever he was around. This caused Ceon to not like him at all, and when Veral appeared, a smirk wiped across his face, as he did research on the Memory Rosaries. It would appear that they suffer massive mind damage when introduced with information of their past. Veral didn't hesitate against the fastest shinigami as he knew if he did, Ceon would kill him. Veral activated something, as it projected into the bright sky images of Ceon and Senna during their last life. The image of Senna was seen into Ceon as he stared at her, in complete shock, and in no time, all the memories of everything flooded into his mind. He couldn't control it, as it was causing massive harm to his mind and body. His screams were heard everywhere, as Ceon's shikai deactivated, and Chika was contained and as was Ceon. Ceon was locked into the Maggots Nest as Chika was put on Sokyoku Hill to be executed via Central 46's orders. Chika was unconscious in the holding chamber as she was in a heated battle for control of her own body. Ceon was also unconscious due to his mind being under shock of his memories returning to him.
The next day, the execution was to go off. They were in a big hurry to remove Chika as they were unknown to the causes of a Visard and they didn't want to risk it's power spreading near any other Shinigami. It was planned to be that night, and during the day, Chika had regained consciousness as she had regained her right to control her body. She won over her Hollow persona and managed to take hold of the mask Visoreds wear. She was very unaware of what was going on, being locked in the Sokyoku hill and in a white robe. Was she suddenly to be killed? Chika's heart began to race, not knowing where Ceon was, or what was going on. Was he okay? On the other side of Soul Society in the Maggots Nest, Ceon awoke and regained consciousness as well. He was fortunate, as all the memories he took in nearly caused his mind to crumble in on it's self. Ceon remembered what happened to Chika and everything now. It was all going to be okay, as he knew what cell he was in. He just turned around and unleashed a mass blast of reitsu causing the wall in the back of his cell to crumble, opening up to the world of the Onmitsukido quarters. This was going to be very easy. As the alarms went off of Ceon's escape, Ceon was able to activate his radar and learned where the location of his Zanpaktou was. Ceon being the fastest known Shinigami in Soul Society took off, and retrieved Kaizaken without effort. He was then able to read the location of Chika, and ran passed Central 46 and all heading to her location. As he approached Sokyoku Hill he was confronted by 2 of the Gotei Captains. Ceon just smirked as he didn't even need to fight them. His Shikai was already inside of the tower, and he grabbed Chika, busting her out of there. Now in the fields of the Onmitsukido Training Grounds, where they first met, Ceon and Chika ran into their greatest challenge, and that was where they were face to face with the Visard Organization Leader, all their captains, and General Yamamoto with all his Captains, accompanied by Veral, the 12th Divisions lead scientist of Memory Rosaries. Ceon knew he didn't stand a chance against all of them all. It would be impossible for him to fight all of them, and he had to get Chika safely away. Ceon knew of one thing to do, and it was to release his memories, or in other words, become the weapon to destroy existence. Ceon pulled a Kunai out and looked at Chika with a smile. He then said one thing to Chika. "Get away from here...", and with that, Ceon took the Kunai and struck himself in the heart with it, causing a massive explosion of Rietsu that even caused General Yamamoto to be shocked.
As Chika scape goated away, all that was left where she was, stood Ceon with eyes of flashing white, and his hair flowing upwards. Surrounding him was 3 Pole Arms that in the shine of their blades reflected the faces of those they represented. One was Claire, his older sister, one was Chika, and the last was Senna. At that moment, Ceon and the Pole Arms took action, as one Pole arm went to the Org Leader of the Visoreds, one went to General Yamamoto, One went to one of the Captains in the Visards. Ceon however, went straight for Veral. Ceon's hate for Veral was too intense, and he had to be ended now. Ceon's speed was faster than anything in existence, as not even a second after being in that mode, Veral was seen being sliced in half, and Ceon standing right behind his cut up body. General Yamamoto had no time to wait, as he went Shikai immediately just to defend himself from Ceon's massive Pole Arm. It was learned that Ceon's very being can be moved between the Pole Arms and that the Pole Arms can control them selves. This power was too intense, as with no doubt, this was really a weapon to destroy Existence. Finally after 3 minutes, allowing Chika to escape with one of the Visored Captains, Ceon stood between both colliding forces, and the Pole Arms rotated around him at an extremely fast speed, as Ceon yelled out and exploded with raw energy. This power was impossible to contain as there was just too much of it. This caused all forces to retreat and therefore the battle was ended. Ceon managed to stop an all out battle while saving Chika from death from the Shinigami. As the blast cleared, Ceon was falling down from the sky, Kunai still in his heart. He smiled as he fell to the ground, and his body began to wither away. His last words before disappearing were, "Senna, I'm coming...". And with that, Ceon had disappeared from 80 years of Onmitsukido power and Soul Society influence. After that day, the Soul Society put Roiben in charge of the Onmitsukido and 2nd Division. He had large shoes to fill, as Ceon had done marvelous things, and He made small changes, but kept his job up either way.

|Subject Post 2Subject: Re: The Memory Rosary Archives... Mon Nov 29, 2010 9:39 pm|| |
How many years has it been? Oh yeah, about 2. It was 2 years after Ceon released his Memories becoming the ultimate being. It was proven that on that day, Ceon and his power was unstoppable, and the Memory Rosaries really had incredible power. In the forests of where Ceon had released his memories, a body of a Shinigami was seen laying in the grass. His hair white, and wearing a Shinigami uniform. A red ribbon was tied to his left arm, as once again, the Memory Rosary has risen again. He laid there in the forest unconscious as two Shinigami walked along the forest doing border control. The 3rd Division's job was to patrol the border and protect the Soul Society, as well as the Onmitsukido were to do the same. General Roiben of the Onmitsukido and Captain of Division 3 Midori were on a patrol, when they came across the unconscious Shinigami on the ground. Midori was one with a loving and caring spirit, so she ran to the fallen Shinigami, as Roiben being the more watchful one, observed the unconscious Shinigami. It didn't take long, however for Roiben to quickly realize who it was. It was his Superior before himself, Ceon Clixx! Midori not very known of the Shinigami, was informed of who he was by Roiben. Roiben notified him of his deeds, trials, and achievements. Midori was indeed very surprised as to how one Shinigami could do so much, and instantly respected the man. She sat there and petted his head while Roiben spoke, and Ceon was still unconscious. After Roiben finished telling Midori everything, Roiben picked up Ceon and offered to take him to the Onmitsukido for analysis and all, but instead Midori wished to care for him. She said she would take him to the 4th, and Roiben understood as he passed Ceon to her. Midori then departed from Roiben as instead of going to the 4th, she took him to the Barracks of the 3rd and laid him down in her office. Midori laid the young man down and placed a wet rag on his head observing him. He was indeed something amazing for being able to do so much. Midori wanted to help him, even though he was marked a traitor and hero at the same time for betraying the Soul Society and saving it at the same time.
Finally after a little care from Midori, Ceon managed to wake. He was unaware of his location, and didn't know what was going on. He looked to see a charming young woman caring for him as he sat up. Who was she? Midori turned to see Ceon had awaken and went to him telling him that she found him in the forest. Ceon didn't freak out which was a surprise this time, as the 2 other times he has risen, he would freak out, but this time he held still. Midori told him that her name was Midori Suigara and she was there to help him recover. Ceon didn't budge at all and listened to what she told him. In the time Ceon laid there, his blade was behind him at the ready as he still wasn't sure who this was. As she stood up to get some books of his past to help him remember, Ceon shot up and got behind her, putting the blade to her neck. He wasn't going to be made a fool of, and he sure as hell wasn't going to be tricked, but in the time he held her there, a scent entered Ceon's nose, as it was the smell of spring plums. When he sensed that, an image of someone he couldn't remember ran through his head. It was a girl with purple hair. Who was that? Ceon pulled his blade back as he fell to the ground. He hasn't recovered fully since being reborn, and Midori ran to his side. Ceon was shocked that even though he held a blade to her throat, she still went to aid him. She was indeed someone interesting.
For a while, Ceon stayed in the 3rd Division with Midori as she helped him remember who he was. She gave him books of his journals, and photos of his past as well as videos and all sorts of things to help remember. It was painful as for the Memories to return to Ceon took a while. After about a week of being with Midori hidden under the Gotei's nose, Ceon managed to recover the past of him being in the Onmitsukido for 80 years, saving a girl named Chika Misaki, and being the Hero of Existence some odd while ago. He didn't remember Senna or Claire however as that was a bit more challenging. Overall, Ceon managed to remember quite a bit, and in no time Kaizaken manifested once again to inform Ceon that she wasn't lying. Kaizaken needed Ceon to remove his weakness now so that he could be back on top of fighting par. Kaizaken thanked Midori for her assistance, but something was wrong as in the week of Midori caring for Ceon, there was a small development. Midori was growing in Ceon's heart.
Finally, Midori took Ceon to the 4th Division as Unohana was shocked to see Ceon the Memory Rosary alive! She quickly analyzed him and then requested that Captain Midori report this to General Yamamoto. Midori agreed as she waved bye to Ceon and departed to the General. Ceon was placed under care specifically to Unohana as she spoke with Ceon asking him questions. Ceon being unable to speak had Kaizaken speak on his behalf and Unohana in that time as well got a special place with Ceon's trust as she wasn't there to learn Ceon's secrets or anything, but more his well being. This proved to Ceon that she would be okay. Midori on the other hand brought the rebirth to General Yamamoto, and he thanked Midori for informing him. General Yamamoto then went to Central 46 to discuss the matters of Ceon Clixx, the Memory Rosary. They all agreed that the sheer power he holds is something they must keep on their side, and also, they also agreed they must do what it takes to make him pleased to make sure he wont risk what he did for Chika. They needed someone on the inside to watch over Ceon, and they all came to an agreement, that since Midori was the one to find him and Ceon didn't run off or cause problems, Midori would be the one to watch Ceon and make sure he keeps a positive morale. General Yamamoto placed Midori on orders of that specification, and she agreed to it without hesitation. Then General Yamamoto met with Ceon in the 4th Division barracks. Ceon didn't know who he was off the bat, but General Yamamoto was pleased to see his former captain well. General Yamamoto then told Ceon that his placement within the Gotei was no longer necessary as his new place was officially in the strongest Division in the entire Soul Society.
The Zero Division.Chapter Eleven:
As Ceon was accepted into the Zero Division, Ceon was very unaware of what to expect. He was taken to a dark room where he was to sit in a chair and wait for someone to talk to him. Ceon waited, he was finally met by a man named Andiro Hikasashi. He was a Zero Division member, as he was wearing some fancy Hiori cape. It was black and had a white diamond border on the bottom. Was this what the Zero Division wore? The individual looked at Ceon and smiled as he pulled out a folder and pulled some papers out to read. The man discussed Ceon's accomplishments as well as time in the Gotei. He was given high rewards and remarks being known as one of the most famous Shinigami in the entire Gotei. This really wasn't something Ceon was going for, but hey he'll listen. The man continued to then talk about something Ceon was actually interested in. It was about Chika Misaki and her location. He asked if Ceon was aware to what Chika was doing or went after her escape. Ceon just shrugged his shoulders as he could remember anything about that. The man then asked, if given the chance to do it for someone you cared for, would you do it again? Ceon thought for a second, as he didn't want to lie. He decided to be honest as he nodded agreeing he would do it again. The man actually smiled as he was testing Ceon on his honesty, and not his ability to do what the job entailed. They all knew Ceon would obey orders and all that, so they didn't really worry. The many stood up as he then clapped his hands and walked in were two odd looking souls. They were normal no less, but had something covering their face as they appeared to be beings of a high class. They walked in presenting Ceon the same black Hiori as the man who interviewed him and a new identification badge. This badge is what will get Ceon into ANY security clearance in the entire Soul Society. He could go into the 12th Division if he even chose! Ceon looked at the Hiori then ripped it. Andiro was a little surprised on what Ceon did, but then Ceon took the cape line with the diamonds on it, and tied it to his right arm. Ceon didn't like capes, and Andiro didn't argue it, as when Ceon was in charge of the 2nd and Onmitsukido, he had the Captain and General cape torn and tied on his arms. Ceon was officially placed in the Zero Division, and was immediately well respected for being a new member. Ceon was given a place for rest, his own office and all that located under Central 46. The Zero Division was to be hidden, and the barracks were to be hidden as well. That just meant, Ceon couldn't bring any visitors down.
After being allowed into the Zero Division, Ceon went off looking for Midori. In no time Midori found Ceon and Kaizaken told Midori of Ceon's experience. Midori was quite stunned as it sounded very interesting. Midori and Ceon's relationship even developed even more as the two got closer. They constantly went out to dinner to discuss Captain to Zero Division affairs, and many other things. Ceon being in the Zero Division didn't do much, and Midori had a lot to discuss being the Captain of the third, but more importantly, she had to keep an eye on Ceon. One evening, Ceon decided to walk Midori back to her office as the two were really getting along. When they arrived, Midori couldn't hold back anymore as she had feelings for the Memory Rosary and she pulled him into her office, and gave him a big emotion filled kiss. Ceon's face was redder than anything else, as even being a master of surprise attacks, He didn't expect this to happen. When Midori broke the kiss, she immediately apologized and ran to her private quarters and closed the door behind her. Ceon didn't really know what to do. Kaizaken on the other hand was in his spirit world cursing everything. He didn't want Ceon to reestablish a bond, and he just did. Ceon approached the door and knocked, only to hear Midori yell back for him to go away. Ceon didn't understand, and decided to go in anyways. As he opened the door, he saw Midori crying on her bed and Ceon didn't understand. Midori turned from him and told him to leave, but Ceon only got closer. Midori then stood up and began to punch, but Ceon instead grabbed her wrist and pulled her in for a kiss. Midori was stunned, as Ceon had returned what she gave him. In the matter of a month, Midori and Ceon's bond had grown to a point where a relationship was strong between them. Midori and Ceon feeling the moment spent the night together as Ceon wished to relinquish her crying. The next morning, Ceon and Midori were able to understand their feelings for one another and accepted them. It didn't take long before Ceon and Midori became the famous pairing in the Gotei, the Captain of Division three and a Zero Division member, but something soon would happen that would sever the relations between Midori and Ceon.
There was something going on in Midori's home location. Midori had to return to her clan and assist in any means possible, and she had to remove her point of command, but the most painful part was she had to sever her bond with Ceon. Ceon and Midori spoke one day under the cloudy sky of Soul Society as the atmosphere played that of a depressing one. Midori told Ceon that she was going away for a long time, and that she was so sorry. She had to break what the two had worked for, and this caused Ceon to be really upset. Midori told Ceon that she was ordered by the Central 46 to watch over him, but she wished to do that in the first place. Ceon understood, and with that, Midori turned away from Ceon as she walked away returning to where she was needed most, leaving Ceon alone to himself. The next month was one very quiet as Ceon had no real orders, and most of his time was spent visiting Yoruichi and Urahara, but in the time of the Zero Division, Ceon received his first class A order.
To go retrieve an awakening Memory Rosary, named Senna.Chapter Twelve:
Midori was gone, and when Ceon heard the name Senna, he knew something was going on. With no hesitation, Ceon ran off to quickly to fetch the target, and he wanted to see if maybe the would be able to inform a little more of who he really is. On earth, he noticed a great power displacement, as the sky slightly changed color. There was a massive break in the power that caused Soul Society to appear over head, and Ceon had to get this new Memory Rosary into Soul Society immediately as to keep that power under control. Arriving in the park, Ceon was met by millions of swirling leaves. He pulled out a Kunai unaware of what would happen, and when Ceon looked ahead, a beautiful girl with purple hair and a red ribbon tied around her hair and large red obi sash around her waist was standing, combat ready with her shikai active. It looked like a large staff with a small blade at the end and rings in a circle on the other end. On one end of the park was Ceon and the other was Senna. Ceon slowly took a step closer and the girl yelled out to not come closer. She was scared of what was going on, and didn't want anything funny to happen. As Ceon took one more step, Senna meant business as she flew straight for Ceon. Ceon quickly defended himself dodging all of her strikes, trying not to get hit by her. He was off his game a bit as he knew who she was, but couldn't place it right on the mark. Who was this woman and why did he know her so well? One of her strikes went through as he suddenly felt impaled in the lower left region of his torso. Ceon not taking any moment to wait, grabs her blade pulling her in closer, taking the pain of the impale. He then grabbed Senna and looked deep into her eyes. At that moment, both of them were flooded with memories of two children. Two children playing in the dirt together, then two teenagers kissing under the moonlit sky, and then the death of two in a burning house. When returned to reality, Ceon fell back and landed so the Zanpaktou Senna wielded fell out his front side leaving him to bleed. Senna fell back as well, and as she did, a tear dropped from her eye. Before falling unconscious, the words "I'm sorry" escaped her mouth before blacking out. Ceon and Senna were retrieved and taken to the Fourth Division for analysis and medical needs. Ceon was unconscious for a while as he lost a lot of blood and needed time to recover. Senna was awakened only a few hours after being annualized and was informed of who she was. Captain Unohana told Senna that she is a Memory Rosary and that Ceon is one as well, and that the two know each other. Unohana then sent Senna to Ceon's room, and Senna sat by Ceon's bed in the time of his unconsciousness looking at him carefully. She studied him and learned of him, remembering exactly who he is to her. In no time, she was reminded that he is her long lost love. Her non-existent soul mate, and that he would do everything for her. Ceon finally awoke to see Senna there and he said to her, "Hey". Senna cried as she looked down seeing her love after so long and felt so terrible after doing that damage to him. Ceon didn't mind as he leaned up and gave her a hug. He missed Senna very much and now that the two were back together, their lives would be able to progress normally now, and with no distractions. There was something bothering Ceon a little though, and that was, while he lived two more lives than Senna, a lot has happened and technically he had an affair, but he couldn't control it, as his Memories were gone. Ceon admitted to his crimes against Senna as though to confess of a deep dark sin. Senna understood that Ceon was not cared for properly, and all that mattered was that Senna and Ceon were back together once and for all. Their hearts reunited gave a new opportunity of love for the two Memory Rosaries.
Central 46 knowing of Senna's life and ties to Ceon decided to not place her in a Division within the Soul Society, but instead placed Senna to be with Ceon at all times. She was to be like a personal assistant and stay out of combat if possible. Central 46 didn't have a real job for her yet, but in time they will come up with something. Ceon and Senna shared many moments together throughout the Gotei for many months. They were witness to when Aizen betrayed Soul Society, and what confused Ceon was that he wasn't sent to trail after Aizen, instead he was told to go and protect the Royal Families from any possible harm. In this time, Roiben, the Onmitsukido General, disappeared and Soi Fon was placed back in her former position. Senna was with Ceon the entire time as they protect the Royal Families from any possible harm and threat.
After the rebellion, Ceon and Senna returned to see the Central 46 dead and it shocked all of the Gotei. The rest of the 0 Division was really in confusion as they didn't expect this kind of event to happen from one Shinigami Captain. Who was this Aizen, and what was going on? Ceon was then given a separate living quarters with the rest of the 0 Division. They were given a new office and living quarters on the outside of the Gotei 13, yet hidden within the Soul Society placed around the Kuchki Noble establishment. Ceon then noted many changes along the Soul Society as there were captain slots open and everything. So much was going on, and the Gotei was really under a moment of chaos. Ceon did the best he could for Senna in caring and taking care of her. It was to no end that the two Memory Rosaries had the ability to never be separated. Constantly they were analyzed upon their power potential, and they came to the realization that when together, Ceon and Senna are actually stronger than when alone. This was a tad surprise as the two weapons together seemed to have their memories be their power run. The fact that both have lived numerous lives, and that they are now fully aware of everything about each other and their lives, they hold a lot of power. This made Ceon and Senna a very powerful team, and one that would never be taken lightly.Chapter Thirteen:
One month, Ceon and Senna had very comfortable lives, and they were surprised with wonderful news. Senna went to speak with Unohana on an odd change, and came to the realization that she was pregnant. Senna completely stunned with the news couldn't contain herself to inform Ceon. Ceon was at their home preparing for a day of work when Senna appeared tacking Ceon down kissing him. Ceon looked back a little confused and Senna told him that he was to be a father! Shocked by the mere fact that two beings whom are nonexistent to reality are able to create something shocked Ceon. He couldn't believe he was going to have a child! Ceon and Senna within that time made their place acceptable for a child. They learned after 3 months that they were going to have a girl. Ceon was so scared thinking about it. He was hoping it would be a boy because if it was a boy, then that means he could be harsh on the boy and train him to be like him, but now everything was going to be different. Constantly, Ceon skipped work in order to stay home and care for Senna, as he wanted everything to go fine, and he was scared of anything to happen. He wanted Senna to have a safe birth, and the baby to develop just fine. Ceon attended constant baby course's taught by Unohana's lieutenant Isane. She was very kind to Ceon and often called him her older brother since they had the same hair color and looked a little alike. Ceon just laughed and went with it.
As time went on, Ceon's determination towards Senna's care and the child only grew. He would do all the chores, cooking, and everything for Senna, and she would stay healthy for the baby. Her stomach grew and she got bigger and bigger in time, and it made Ceon seriously become more and more effectuated on their safety. One day while Senna was 6 months in, and she looked like she was holding a honeydew under her shirt, Senna began to feel moving. Shocked, she called for Ceon whom was by her side immediately. She told Ceon to feel her stomach, and Ceon placed his hand down and to his surprise, he felt movement! This was a shock to Ceon as for the first time he could feel the proof of life lying within Senna. Ceon dropped a few tears looking up at Senna in the fact that they are going to have a child! After that, the two began to discuss names. Ceon never really knew what to name a child, and Senna didn't either, but when they were alive and planning to be married, Senna was already planning on having a child with Ceon, and she always thought the name Neviah to be a beautiful one. Ceon agreed and decided that the name for their child would be Neviah. Neviah Clixx-Kimura.
During one winter, Senna was complaining to Ceon on how she never gets to have any fun, and was bothered on how Ceon was doing all the work. Senna wanted to help, and she felt bad that he was doing everything. Ceon didn't mind at all really, and preferred to do something for once. Ceon didn't really want Senna doing anything, and he wanted her to rest as if she pushed herself, she might hurt herself, so to distract her, Ceon convinced the two to go on a lovely walk in the snow. Ceon got Senna all dressed up and and he got suited up, and the two strolled off. They enjoyed the beautiful falling snow, and it was like Kaizaken was doing this for them. Kaizaken hasn't fought or done anything in months because Ceon has been so distracted from Senna that he hasn't had time for anything but her. As they walked, Senna locked arms with Ceon and leaned against him, as Ceon held her as they walked. It was really something of bliss, as it was the best thing ever for the two to be together. Suddenly, as they walked, Senna felt a slight pain as water began to fall from her leg. Her water broke as it appeared it was time for the baby.
Ceon freaking out grabbed Senna and ran as quick as he could to the 4th Division. Unohana got Senna all set up and placed, but while preparing Unohana realized something. Senna's body frame was very small, and if she went into labor at this point it could be very serious to her health. Unohana requested that Senna be given medication, but Senna refused as she wanted to have a natural birth, and she had faith the child would be fine. Unohana didn't like the sound of it, and Ceon tried to convince Senna to do otherwise, but Senna wanted to be strong. She was tired of Ceon always doing the work, so she decided to do it all herself this time. During the birthing process, Ceon was holding Senna's hand as her grip was very strong. Ceon held tight to her bone shattering grip, as she screamed in pain. Finally, the cries of a small child could be heard after 2 hours of agonizing pain on Senna. Unohana took the small child, as she washed it and cut the cord. She then handed the small precious child to Ceon wrapped in a pink blanket. Ceon looked over to Senna smiling, wishing to show her the baby, but for some reason Senna wasn't responding. Ceon tried to call her name, but Unohana quickly moved Ceon as Senna was in critical condition. Unohana was right that Senna's body was too frail and that the damage caused massive stress to Senna, and that it would do something terrible to her. Ceon watched, as for twenty minutes, Unohana and Isane attempted to bring Senna conscious, but instead, it was too late. Ceon now stood there holding a beautiful young baby, and looking at his wife dead before him. Ceon screamed out for Senna's name, as she had left him behind once again. The next day, Senna's body disappeared back into the stream of Memories, and Ceon left Neviah with Unohana as he shut himself away for 2 months, away from everyone and everything. This began Ceon's depression stage.Chapter Fourteen:
Why was Ceon so alone? What did Ceon ever do to deserve such pain? Ceon believed he was taking care of Senna, and preparing her for the child, but why did she have to go through so much pain? Ceon was feeling terrible and holding no will to do anything. He was shut out in the back of his house all the time, alone and in the dark. He would sometimes starve himself and just do nothing. Kaizaken tried to reason with Ceon, but that was impossible. Ceon's mind was gone as someone that was gold to him had passed, and he felt so alone. Her pain was so intense, and he wanted to take that pain from her, but because she wouldn't do that alternative method, it ended up taking her life. Senna's death was kept silent through Soul Society as if word got out that Senna had passed, then there would be high alert for Senna when she rises again. They had to keep everything quiet, but one thing that was a challenge to keep under control was Ceon's depression. Unohana was soon enough given permission to enter the Zero Division, and she would go to where Ceon was located to care for him. He wouldn't eat, and he wouldn't even look at anyone. He just continued to stare off, wondering what he did to deserve all this pain. From life, even after death he has to be surrounded with so much pain. Unohana could tell that if something didn't change, Ceon would end up killing himself from the depression, so One day Unohana came over to visit, and with her, she brought a small child about 7 months old. It was an adorable small child. The child had white hair and tan eyes, and had a very timid and shy attitude. Unohana brought the child to Ceon and told him it was Neviah. Ceon looked up to see his own child, after 7 months of being away. Ceon held out his hand, as Neviah grabbed onto it and smiled at Ceon. She was able to identify whom her father was, and Ceon smiled for the first time since Senna had died. After getting Ceon all cleaned up and up to par, Unohana showed Ceon how to take care of Neviah and Ceon managed to get the courage to finally raise her. Once again, Ceon managed to get a small light back in his life, for caring the child that Senna and him had created.
5 months after Ceon's return to society, the questions were asking where Senna and Ceon have disappeared. Kaizaken, being proud to return to society told everyone that Senna and Ceon were on vacation, and then Senna disappeared. No one knew where she was and that she had to run off. Everyone asked how Ceon would do, but being fine, Ceon just smiled being able to take care of his child. Then something that Ceon never expected to happen did, as after two years, Midori returned form her purpose. Midori ran to Ceon with the biggest smile ever, but was quickly stopped by the appearance of a small child holding Ceon's hand. Ceon introduced the two and told Midori that Senna returned and they had a kid, but Senna disappeared. Midori was very heartbroken in two ways. She was saddened to see that Ceon was sad, but worse was that she felt like she had no place left in his heart. Midori hid her feelings however and in turn said how she was accepted into the Zero Division. Ceon was very pleased to hear that Midori would be able to work with him. All was sounding wonderful and that things would finally look up in the end, but instead things were to get more trivial and confusing. Finally, an alert went off as all the captains were gone and it would seem that the enemy all have been fearing has risen. Aizen has decided to rise from Hueco Mundo and take action, beginning the war that would shock all Shinigami foundations.Chapter Fifteen:
Ceon and Midori were first sent to defend the Royal Families once again, as it was believed that Aizen was going to attack Soul Society, but instead, the Gotei took action to stop Aizen from his first plan of attacking Karakura town. Ceon waited patiently as he found it stupid that the strongest of all Shinigami were being held back to watch while the others went in and had their lives risked, but whatever happened, happened. Midori was telling Ceon about her journey and how she was in a war with her clan that took ages. Ceon was very interested and listened closely as this was something interesting indeed. Then Ceon and Midori's attention was diverted back to what was happening to the fake Karakura town, as the Visards appeared to aid the Shinigami. Ceon watched as the Espada fell before the true power of the Captains of Soul Society and Ceon began to feel that maybe everything with the Gotei would be okay after all, but Ceon then watched as everything began to fall. Ceon watched as the Visards fell before Aizen, as well as the Captains. Then General Yamamoto stepped up to finish the job, and Ceon smiled believing that the fight would be over soon, but instead he watched as Aizen instead did something with a creation from Urahara to deny the attack from Yamamoto. Yamamoto seemed to die in vein and this caused a bit of anger within Ceon. Ceon wanted to get out there now and end this Aizen fellow, but was not ordered to move yet. Finally when Aizen was confronted with Isshin Kurosaki, Urahara, and Yoruichi, Ceon cheered to see his teachers finally stepping up. Since there were no active captains in place, the Zero Division was ordered to deploy. Ceon leaving Neviah in the care of others, ran off with his team and Midori to finish this job.
Arriving at the location of the chaos Ceon immediately pointed the members to get the wounded to safety immediately. Ceon and Midori decided they would deal with Aizen and Gin, but before combat started, there was an order for no one to touch Gin. Ceon didn't understand why he wasn't allowed to attack one of the traitors, but went with it anyways, as he was distracted with some scrawny red head kid. Ceon then had Midori go and watch Gin to make sure he doesn't pull anything and while she did so, she found Tsubine was still active on the battlefield. Ceon pulled his Zanpaktou out and jumped in attacking Aizen head on. Aizen was shocked to see that the Zero Division was deployed and noticed he was fighting the Memory Rosary Ceon Clixx-Kimura. Last Aizen heard the Memory Rosaries were dead, and he didn't have a strategy to face this opponent. Because of that, he needed to use the Hongyoku to the best of it's potential. With Midori and Tsubine as back up, she managed to keep Gin from laying any surprise attacks, while Ceon unleashed a whole new level of whoop-ass. Aizen becoming frustrated with this fight realized that even though he had an amazing defense, it was nothing compared to the fact that he couldn't damage Ceon at all. Clouds overhead rotated over the battlefield as lightning rolled in the distance. A hurricane was beginning to rise, as Ceon had the entire fight planned from the beginning after watching this opponent, and since Ceon wasn't under any of Aizen's hypnosis, he was perfectly fine. Aizen then pulled his Shikai out as he decided to defeat Ceon using his perfect hypnosis. Ceon smiled as suddenly, his blade turned into a long Pole Arm and wings sprouted from Ceon's back. There were no dragons in sight however, as now the interesting part begins.
Aizen then stated that Ceon was wide open, but Ceon just smiled as he blocked an attack from what looked like Aizen, but Ceon knew exactly what to do. Suddenly, 5 Lightning Dragons rose up as a large yellow circle sprouted up from Ceon and what looked like Midori. Midori asked what Ceon was doing, but Ceon without stopping, shoved his Pole Arm right down, as it went into the body. The Hypnosis cut as it was really Aizen, disguised as Midori. Ceon knew it was Midori because of the fact that Midori has a special signature within her that protects her from all of Ceon's abilities. If she was in there, she would have been able to move, but what really gave it away was that during Ceon's punches, Aizen had an electrical current within him that gave away his every position. Aizen now with his perfect shield broken, was vulnerable to the Omen ability. Ceon jumped up, as he then unleashed all his energy into the circle, destroying Aizen and whatever was left of him. When Ceon was finished with Aizen, he then looked over to realize that Gin had disappeared. Ceon didn't know where he went, but decided it was none of his business. Ceon and Midori then assisted in moving all the injured as the Hueco Mundo group returned successful. After time of healing for all, the Gotei rejoiced in their triumphs, and mourned for their losses. Overall, when Ceon returned, the entire Zero Division was heavily praised on their abilities to take the challenge, and defeat the traitor of Soul Society.Chapter Sixteen:
Finally after all that, Ceon watched many things happen in the years since that war. One thing that caught Ceon's eye was that his student Tsubine was promoted into the position of Captain Commander in the Gotei. Ceon snickered a little as that happened because he trained the new General. Another thing that pleased Ceon was when Unohana was promoted into the Zero Division, as well as Shunsui. One thing that was sad however was the death of Ukitake to the disease he had been fighting for ages. It was something that was mourned with, as well as the loss of General Yamamoto. Ceon was pleased that the safety of his two favorite teachers were well, as well as all the Captains of Soul Society. Truly, everything was going to be okay. Then there were some adjustments to the Captain slots, as Ceon watched them. Overall, Ceon was fine in the Zero Division with Midori and Unohana, and everything was going to be okay with work.
After some years, Ceon watched as his lovely daughter grew. Neviah was really turning out to be as beautiful as her mother, and her power was intense! For being but a small child, she managed to hold an intense amount of Spiritual Pressure. Ceon noted it as she began to do small bits of training When Neviah was eight years of age, he began to train her in the art of hand to hand combat. He wasn't hard with her, but he wasn't easy. He was in fact the strictest and most challenging teacher the Onmitsukido ever had. Neviah was very shy and timid all her life, and Ceon was used to it, but one thing that made Ceon smile was that, Neviah absolutely lover her father. Neviah always smiled when near Ceon and worked very hard for him. When Ceon would wake up in the morning, Neivah would have breakfast ready for him, and when he got home, dinner would be ready, and Ceon couldn't believe that for a small eight year old girl, she was able to so much! The years rolled on as Neviah was indeed strong and Ceon got her a gift. Ceon presented her with her very own Zanpaktou. It was a Wakizashi, but opposite of her fathers. It was all white instead of black, and was absolutely marvelous, but one thing that surprised Neviah was when she looked at the blade. Ceon's blade was engraved in yellow saying "Non-Existent", but Neviah's blade was mysteriously see through as it shinned and glimmered. Neviah didn't have a spirit till one night, she was visited by a mysterious angel. Neviah told Ceon all about it, and Ceon told her to accept that Spirit. When you accept the spirit as your ally, then you will be able to wield their power. Neivah managed to communicate with the spirit, as she was then given the power of the Divinity Angel called Existence. She didn't know her power, and neither did Ceon, but he was proud to see his young girl have so much potential, just like her mother. Neivah while growing up asked many questions about Senna, and Ceon answered them with a smile. Neviah managed to learn all about her mother, and was completely fascinated about her. Ceon didn't want Neviah to leave, but then something happened as Ceon was visited by some of the Central 46 members. They requested that Neviah join their Academy as she holds intense power. Ceon didn't want her to go, but the shy and timid child accepted the offer. She was ready to leave, and she was 30 years of age, 12 in appearance. Ceon accepted her departure and watched his child leave.
One again, Ceon was alone. Ceon managed to find some entertainment when going to work as Midori was there, but what troubled him was that at home there was no one there, and Senna was gone for a really long time. The fact that Senna hadn't returned scared Ceon a little as he wished she would appear once again. Ceon was getting sick of being alone and it really frustrated him. Why did he exist in the first place? The sheer fact that Senna keeps leaving him and Neviah is now gone somewhat bothered him, and even though they die, they keep coming back. They are also tools that could potentially destroy existence. Overall, the fact they survived was very dangerous.
So here we are, by the water under the endless blue sky, looking at the flower before him, the Anemone. It was truly a beautiful flower, but it's meaning was something that probably pertained to Ceon's life as a Memory Rosary. There was no hope for him in the end. He will probably see endless days till the time comes for him to be used as something to destroy all existence it's self. The fact a flower like this is alive though is interesting, because it constantly battled for survival, and even though it lives in places of no hope and stays, it still fights, probably for a meaning of hope. Maybe, Ceon should as well keep surviving like this little flower. Ceon smiled looking at the small thing, as it was decided. Ceon will fight on, in determination that there will be hope in the future, so that he may be able to smile in peace with his love, sister, and child once more.
Here's to the future.Abilities/Zanpaktou
Kaizaken, the god of Lightning and Storms (A cute little lightning ball about the size of Navi)
The Appearance of Kaizaken to all whom see him is:
Kaizaken's true form and will only appear when Ceon enters Bankai:
Kaizaken is a semi serious spirit. When he picked up Ceon, he saw such potential in the boy, and decided to take him under his wing. Kaizaken tamed Ceon and helped him become the amazing weapon he is today. Kaizaken constantly manifests in a form visible by others, which is the little fairy form, and will communicate to others for Ceon. The world in which Kaizaken resides is a world of endless blue skies and clouds. The God of Storms is living in his natural environment and the weather in the world displays his current mood.Sealed Zanpakutô :
The sealed Zanpaktou is between the Obi sash and trousers behind Ceon and hidden under his blouse. The Zanpaktou has no guard and is all black. The handle is 6 inches long and is black leather. The scabbard is black as well and is of a black silk covering a black wooden scabbard. The blade is 16 inches long and has an inscription written in Kanji down the blade. The inscription is displayed on both sides in yellow and say: "Non-Existent"Shikai Description:
When activated he gains 5 clones with exactly the same energy and everything but different weapons. The Clones have the same knowledge, power, stamina, speed, strength, and vitality of Ceon. The only way the Clones are removed are from fatal attacks like Stabbing the heart, blunt trauma, and anything that will end a life. Each clone is created with a weapon of Ceon's choosing. The weapon selections are: 2 Wakizashi's
Addition Supply of Kunai [+200 Count]
It's like facing 6 Ceon's all together. He also has a few abilities with this. He can kill off a clone and remake one in a heart beat. When remaking another clone, he can make it reappear anywhere, but the further it is, the more energy he expels summoning it. He also has a life transfer ability that moves his life. If Ceon is in threat of death or danger, his life can be transferred to another clone and he'll become the the Real Ceon. All clones can do the same abilities except make more clones. This ability is called Substitution
After training with Yoruichi in his 2nd life and his experiences in his 3rd life Ceon has been able to master his additional Shikai abilities, which are the following:
A) Ceon can use his manipulation of Electricity to cast any lightning or electric base Kido instantly without incantation or summon period. A list of some he can cast instantly are:
4. Byakurai (Pale Lightning) - The user fires a concentrated, powerful lightning bolt from their finger.
11. Tsuzuri Raiden (Bound Lightning) - Electric current flows through any object the user touches and is able to lead electricity, damaging any target that is in contact with the object the current runs through.
63. Raikōhō (Thunder Roar Cannon) - Fires a massive wave of yellow energy at a target.
88. Hiryugekizokushintenraiho (Flying Dragon-Striking Heaven-Shaking Thunder Cannon) - Fires a gigantic electricity blast of spiritual energy resulting in an truly enormous explosion.
Unknown. Hyōga Seiran (Glacier Vapor Storm) - This technique was used by Kōga Kuchiki. A spell that fires a massive wave of ice capable of freezing its targets and surrounding area as well as destroying a group of Menos Grande through sheer power. It is also strong enough to go through Danku, which can block any Destructive spell numbered 89 or less. While both number and classification of this particular spell is not expressly stated, it is clearly a Destructive spell.
61. Rikujokoro (Six Rods Prison of Light) - Summons six thin, wide beams of light that slam into a target's midsection, holding them in place. The target is then unable to move any part of their body including the parts that were not struck by the beams.
77. Tenteikura (Heavenly Rickshaws in Silken Air) - Transmits messages mentally to anyone within an area of the caster's choosing. In addition to reciting the spell, the user must draw specific markings on their arms, which are animated by the spell to convey the messages. The messages can be spoken either by the caster or by another within the vicinity of the caster.
And due to Onmitsukido 4th Section training as well as Shikai buff, Ceon has some Hakuda Buffs, which are:
Shunko (Flash Cry) — A technique which combines hand-to-hand combat and Kido. A high-pressured Kido is installed throughout the user's body, enhancing their arms and legs for battle. The Kido can also be fired at opponents from the body.
Hanki Sosai (Reverse Demon) — This technique, an ability used during Shunko, nullifies an opponent's Kido by hitting them with a perfectly opposite amount of Kido, and can even neutralize an opponent's movements.
B) Omega Circle: Him or his clones can chant in a circle making it glow from the ground. The bigger the circle the more clones needed to use, same for the stronger the effect. Also, the stronger the effect, the more energy expelled into the circle. There are different things these circles can do:
1: Stun the opponent(s)
2: Make a barrier of pure electricity and plasma
3: Ignites a giant burst of electricity around the circle causing a massive damaging explosion
C) One of Ceon's favorite attacks, the rift jump is where he or a clone will shunpo from point A to point B (within 1-20 meters) and it will seem like nothing happened; however, once at Point B, everything in between will be in a path of 100 cuts, stabs, and slashes as Ceon moves his blade at an unknown speed and leaves a path of stabs, slashes, and cuts into his opponent(s).
Ceon's Kidou use is very refined but not on par with the Kidou Corps General. Ceon being the Ninja pro he is, needs to be very knowledgeable on all combat types. He casts Kidou by hand signs since Ceon doesn't talk, also since Ceon has such a HUGE Spiritual Power pool he can last nearly forever in a fight. Ceon was formerly the Onmitsukido 4th Captain which is the Combat and Specialist trainer for the Onmitsukido. Ceon has mastered all techniques to the Onmitsukido knowledge as well as carried private training from Former Captains Urahara and Yoruichi. The skills include:
Hakuda which is Hand-to-hand combat is not elaborated upon by most Shinigami. Physical strength and skill is determined by this class and is mastered and refined for those in the Maggots Nest. It seems to be a combination of several martial arts.
Ceon has mastered this skill in his years and from Yoruichi's training.
Ceon's Hoho Agility which is an important skill for most Shinigami, is Mastered by Ceon enabling easy traveling while in the air.
Ceon's Shunpo (Flash steps), a movement technique that allows the user to move faster than the eye can follow. Is by far one of the most refined speeds seen since the Goddess of Flash. Though he's still not to her just yet, he's extremely close. The agility and speed of Hoho can be enhanced and improved through mastery of it, concentration, and training. The foremost practitioners of this technique are those assigned to the Onmitsukido.
Ceon's Basic Zanjutsu Swordsmanship has been mastered in his second life with the training of Urahara and being a Memory Rosary, the initial release was already known.
Ceon's Kido use is quite refined. It's not to par of the Kidoshuu General, but is quite above average really. Ceon's more under the mastery of Hakuda in conjunction with Shunko and Hanki. Ceon usually only uses 3 different Kido spells, and some healing spells, but if necessary he can cast other Kido spells using his hand signs. Ceon's Kido master is up to 90 on both types.
Ceon's Spiritual Pressure is so think and intense that he keeps it contained. He is potentially a living battery. When Ceon releases his power and opens up to let his power flow freely, it's so intense and think that if there was someone of 2 tier or lower within 100 feet of him, they would be knocked down and hardly breathe.
Ceon is the best in Soul Society for his manipulation and control of all electric properties. Within intake or expulsion of electricity Ceon can adjust frequency, voltage, amps, and even the magnetic properties allowing the use of magnetism upon use. Usually Ceon will expel his electricity during combat for recognition of weapons and fighters, because Ceon doesn't fight with his eyes, nose, ears, or mouth, he instead uses the frequency of those properties to follow where everything is. Because of this, Ceon is not effected by illusions or mind tricks of any kind.
Ceon is too strong all around since he is able to do so much. Ceon is without a doubt the perfect Ninja Shinigami. He is master of Special missions and accomplishes without any negative in the mission. Ceon technically is a god in a way, because he already mastered basic abilities by being a Memory Rosary, and got the rest from the Onmitsukido training as well as training from Yoruichi and Urahara. It would seem like he has no weakness, but there is one big one.
If his heart is taken advantage of, he is the weakest Shinigami in the entire soul society, losing all will to fight and doing whatever it takes to relieve the pain in his heart.Release:
Ceon never speaks as he is always in Shikai. He is never out of Shikai and always holds the potential to use the shikai abilities at any given notice. The one time Ceon released his Shikai, the words mentioned to summon his blade we're: "Duplicate Kaizaken".Skill Level: Kidou:
MasterSkill Level: Swordsmanship:
MasterSkill Level: Shunpo:
MasterSkill Level: Hand-to-Hand:
Storm and bring forth destruction by your might, Kaizaken!
When activated his Wakizashi(s) become 1 large golden Pole Arm with a Silver Blade. The appearance of the Pole-Arm is indeed beautiful as at the point where the staff meets the blade, there is a dragon head with red eyes. He also gains wings of the purest plasma and electricity (Removing his Shinigami top), and his clones become Lightning Dragons about 60 feet in length. The trace amperage and voltage of these dragons are on an unstable scale meaning if hit, your life will most likely end. The speed of the Dragons aren't the speed of a Shunpo, but hold about the speed of a Captain.
The Lightning wings on Ceon's back are in the shape of a dragon's wings and they can absorb anything of the electrical element and infuse Ceon with it's power. If lightning strikes from above, Ceon will absorb it and use it's power for his attacks. While in Bankai, the Pole Arm becomes infused with electricity making it that if any basic material comes on contact with it, it becomes infused with electricity shocking it and spreading Ceon's signature. Bankai Abilities:
His first is Thunder Storm where he stands atop his Pole Arm and summons multiple blasts of Lightning down upon the enemy(s). Another is by reversing the polarity of the electric charges, Ceon can cast a bolt of lightning into the ground and the lightning will makes it's course to the opponent and attack from below.
Hurricane is where Ceon summons forces of Natural energies and summons a storm of class 5 catastrophe. This Hurricane will not only interrupt any magnetic signals or properties, but it nullifies water, fire, electricity, earth, light, darkness, and wind elements, thus making ALL
elemental powers useless; however, if there is someone with a high level of trust with Ceon. [Gold Rank]
, they are unaffected by Hurricane. It does this because the storm is made by Ceon and worked by spirit particles that feed off the land and whatever is under the clouds. The wind becomes so strong is can tear buildings apart and the rain is so fierce it can pierce the skin. The lightning becomes so rapid that it strikes every second and nonstop. Hurricane comes in 5 steps and begins when Ceon's shikai activates it and goes to 3rd Stage, then will work it's way up hitting Class 5 as Bankai enters activation.
While Hurricane is in Class 5, Ceon will gain the ability for complete weather control and manipulation (Direction and power). Ceon will be able to control the following:
Recharge is if for any reason Ceon loses his electrical energy, or his Bankai stage, Ceon can have the lightning from above strike him and recharge his vitality, energy, and status. To use recharge, Ceon must be on an extremely low level of energy and in need of electricity. After Omen is used, this ability will most likely come into effect. The down side of this is that to Recharge Ceon's strength a certain type of bolt is needed, and it takes time to form. Ceon will need to concentrate and collect his thoughts to make this bolt appear and make use.
Vortex is when Ceon will cast his Lightning dragons to form a certain rotation. This rotation will circle the opponent(s) and thus share a certain frequency. By sharing this frequency Ceon will then activate his magnetic properties and thus a large charge will be casted and electrify the unit into a pure vortex of energy. This energy can only be absorbed by the caster because the lightning dragons are made of Ceon's basic composition.
Another of Ceon's abilities is he can summon and cast multiple Omega Circles. The size and power of these circle's will be like that of his Shikai, but if him and all his clones were involved, meaning they will be roughly 20 feet in diameter, and 5 times more potent, so the paralysis will be much stronger as well as the barriers and surges. Ceon can now summon 5 at a time at any place of his choosing, without the assistance of his Dragons.
And Finally, Omen. Omen is Ceon's ultimate attack and last resort in Bankai. When he decides to use it his dragons will circle his opponent(s) and stop everything to create a large Omega Circle that NO ONE can escape. From there Ceon will throw his Pole Arm down at his opponent(s). His Target isn't them, but more the ground within the circle. Once it hits everything in the Circle and above is Frozen. All muscles will become paralyzed and unable to move. Ceon then puts all his energy into a condensed attack and release it into the circle. This will drain Ceon of all his energy, but cause an obliterating explosion within the circle, deleting anything inside. The Circle barriers will protect bystanders and outsiders, but within the circle, safety is no longer guaranteed. After this attack, Ceon's energy level will be drastically low, leaving him to use Recharge to get back into the fight.There is one shared ability with another unknown Zanpaktou, but it is unknown till Kaizaken finds the other half.
Now since Ceon is a Memory Rosary, there is one more stage to his power. This stage is known as Memory Release. This power is beyond any other scale and cannot be reached at all by any known source. This is the power that almost destroyed existence it's self, but to do that, you need to have at least 3 Memory Rosaries together. Ceon alone has the power to cause massive destruction to an unknown amount of area. What happens is when he stabs his own heart and unleashes his memories, the amount of Pole-Arms will appear as the same amount of those with "Gold" he has reached. These pole-Arms are his memories and connections as their hearts are one. They are all connected so in less then a second, Ceon and the pole-arm can swap places. The Pole-Arms are indestructible and cannot be effected by any powers at all. Ceon also gets his wings from Bankai as they are made of pure plasma and amplify his electrical properties. Ceon's mind goes blank in this stage as he cannot control himself and he gains no emotions. Only in this stage he will attack anyone or anything that is a Green class or lower. If you are a red class you are the one to die by his hands and the most painful way. The Pole-arms are controlled by Ceon's mind and can rotate around him at an obscene speed making a barrier of defense or he can use them to attack and defend.
Ceon's body is amplified by power as he in a way is a battery, but he can control the amount given off or taken in. If he is sapped that's fine, as he cannot control if he is sapped but he can extrude his power at an unknown pace and give off all energy at once just to cause a massive explosion due to overload. Ceon gains unlimited energy as his stamina isn't only overflowing, but his wings take in all spirit particles in the area.
Ceon's speed is BEYOND ANYTHING as the naked eye cannot keep up with him. If Ceon was to look like he's about to punch you, point is, he already has and delivered 3 kicks and 2 additional punches. Ceon's speed is ridiculous and by far the fastest thing to man passing the Goddess of Flash by far.
Ceon's final attack, that he knows of now, is Omen Overload. This attack is where the pole-arms rotate around Ceon at an unknown speed and he gathers all known traces of energy near and around him. This is his final attack, and he uselessness it all obliterating anything in a wide area. This attack can only be used once as after it's gone, Ceon will return to normal, and most likely die from the loss of energy, and the wound in his heart by the Kunai he stabbed himself with. This attack kills everything no if's, and's, or but's...CURRENT//SEPERATION\\
Ceon took leave from the Soul Society and seperated himself from the 0 Division making himself a new fugative of the Gotei. It's said that no one is allowed to seperate themselves from the Gotei, especially 0 Division Members as they know too much, but Ceon left anyways. He's on the search for Midori to find where she is. The rumors spread to him telling him that she has gone missing and no one knows where she is. It's rumored that she is even dead, but Ceon knows she well isn't. She's alive and he knows it, because he can read her signature. It's feint, but it's there. While he searches for her, he keeps his family in the back in his mind, remembering that Neviah is in the 4th Division and probibly being questioned for his disappearance. Tsubine is most likely the new leader of the 0 Division. Senna is still in limbo somewhere and gone from his grasp, and never to forget Claire, she's still loose doing who knows what. No one has been able to find Claire, but if Ceon does, he will make another attempt to free her from her curse of insanity and bloodlust. Ceon must save her, before anyone else can reach her...

絶望の記憶数珠 "The lives of humans are pathetic. They cower to themselves and only wish to live under a rock, and when the strong weed them out, they call it wrong. I saw injustice before my own eyes, and when that wrong happened in front of them, they did nothing. Don't think of me as the Executioner, Judge, or Jury... Just call me the criminal causing your despair~ <3" -Claire Clixx-KimuraSTORYChapter One: Entrance
That was the noise of a 16 year old boy hitting the dirt road hard. He has white hair, medium length, blue eyes, and stood at 5'10". He was wearing black samurai pants and a white traditional work shirt. The boy's name was Ceon and he was walking home from the forest with a dear friend of his. Her name was Senna and the two have been friends for years since they were little. Ceon and his older sister Claire, who was 18 now, lived in the town Chiefs house which was Senna's grandfather. Now the question of why Ceon's face is in the dirt is simple really. He's a lazy klutz and he tripped over a rock. Ceon was too embarrassed to stand so he just laid there wishing he was dead. He knew Senna was going to pester him and give him a hard time. Ceon really didn't want to hear it about now anyways, as it was getting late and dinner was soon. Claire was home that night and making Ceon's favorite of a chicken curry with white rice and dumplings. Oh how the days just got better and better, but still, Ceon laid there in the dirt not wanting to get up...
"Well, this is what you get for never looking where you are going!" Senna said, shaking her head. She wore a light red, almost pink, dress with white edges and designs covering it. The sleeves were too long for her as it was her mother's dress, from before she had died. Senna was a bit smaller then her mother had been, but was not fully grown, and expected to grow into the dress long before discarding or modifying it, so the sleeves dwarfed her arms, and she did not mind, since the bottom no longer drug on the ground when she wore it. Her long, dark black hair that had a hint of purple in the right lighting was blowing in the breeze.
Senna bent over and grabbed one of Ceon's hands with both of her own, not bothering to push her sleeves back. She hauled him up. "Come on, we need to get back, or did you forget that Claire is making your favorite food? Maybe you just want it cold?" Ceon was picked up and the dirt fell from his face and clothes. He had an annoyed look on his face as he was lifted by Senna. Ceon just looked at her with a small smile as he stood up on his own. For some reason Senna was taller than him by a little. Ceon must not have grown all the way it seems, and still had some time. Ceon just grabbed her hand and walked with her slowly heading back. He knew Claire was making his favorite tonight and all, but he wanted to take his time. He had a real nice time with Senna back at the forest just the two of them. The way she grabbed the stick and handled it made her look like a real pro, and Ceon made her scream a few times too...
Yeah that's right, they were playing Samurai. Senna was using a stick as a sword and Ceon was a ninja. He would pop out and scare her making her scream a few times!
As the two walked hand in hand it looked so cute with the two. They entered their small village as the sun was setting and they passed the grave yard. Ceon stopped and looked inside it seeing 3 tomb stones next to each other. Senna's mother and Ceon's parents. It's been about a year since their death and the war was still going on. It was hard to believe Ceon wasn't recruited into war yet, as he was of age. Claire did a good job of keeping them as safe as she could. They were all thankful for that. Ceon then smiled and bowed to them as he took Senna's hand again and they entered the village heading to the top of the hill where they lived...
Senna also bowed, respectfully, to the tomb stones, before continuing on with Ceon. She squeezed his hand through her sleeve with her own, happy for the touch. The two of them, and Claire, had lived together for so long that she considered them not only her best friends, but the siblings that she had never had. Though lately she could feel nothing but joy when seeing Ceon, sometimes her heart felt like it would burst when he would do something nice for her, or the few times that he spoke. She did not quite understand this; it was not the same way with Claire. She ended the thought process there when they got into town. As they walked through the small market Senna looked around eagerly, as she always did. She always felt the need to purchase some sort of treasure, whether it was a particularly red apple, or a strange new toy said to be from a far off land, she did not care.
She sighed. Money was tight, even though her father was the head of the village. These days if her treasures were not needed food for the family, she had to imagine taking them home, and commit them to her memory. Still, when she saw a long red ribbon hanging at one of the seller's booths, her eyes fell on it and did not move. Even as she and Ceon kept walking, she turned her head enough to keep staring at it, not realizing that she was doing so. As they walked he could feel her grip tighten. Ceon guessed that meant she was really happy or something, but it made him happy too. As they walked through the town Senna looked everywhere for some type of souvenir that she called treasure. Ceon thought it was funny and watched her as she looked around, but then he noticed she was starring at something. Ceon looked at what she was starring at, and it was a long red ribbon. Did she have interest in that item? Ceon was wondering that till he accidentally bumped into some guys that were drinking.
HEY! Watch where you’re going kid...
Ceon just nodded and then looked at that ribbon too. He knew money was tight, but Ceon has been saving his allowance. He didn't really have anything to get anyways as just spending his time with Senna was the joy, and even then Senna did so much for him. Ceon ran to the little shop away from Senna and purchased the ribbon with his entire allowance. Ceon then walked back with a big smile and a red face. He didn't know why his face was red, but it was for some reason. Ceon then bowed a little holding the ribbon up for her to take. He was hoping she would accept it as a token of his friendship, appreciation, and hopefully something more...
Senna looked startled when Ceon suddenly released her hand and ran off to the booth. She looked on, confused as he bought the ribbon and brought it back to her. "But Ceon, we can't afford-" She stopped, seeing the look on Ceon's face. She knew that he had spent all of his personal money on it, seeing her looking at it, and suddenly her eyes filled with tears, but they did not fall. "Oh, Ceon!" She exclaimed, leaping to embrace him in a tight hug. "You didn't have to do that for me! You are just the sweetest guy..." Her heart felt like it was going to explode, but she decided to wonder about that later. Right now, she did not care, because it was not a bad feeling, in fact, she had never had a better one.
Ceon was held in the tight hug and melted a little in it. Oh how he loved the sweet embrace of her and not only that, but her scent! She smelt of white plums, a very pleasant smell really. Claire smelt of it while doing her job and she must have shared with Senna for some reason. Ceon didn't know why Senna was wearing his sister’s perfume but it smelt so wonderful. Ceon closed his arms holding the hug with her now. After about 20 seconds Ceon released his arms and tied her hair back with the ribbon. It revealed her face more and really gave more light to her eyes. Ceon thought she really looked beautiful with that dress and look. Any man would be jealous to have such a girl~
Ceon nodded at her looking at her eye to eye with a smile. She looked like she was going to cry for some reason. Ceon just gently ran his hand along her cheek and then jumped out of her grasp. A grin came over his face as he darted off towards the house. It was Ceon's favorite tonight and he didn't want to wait any longer! It was dinner time now and Ceon and Senna can spend more time together after they eat! Senna smiled as he pulled her hair back and tied it with the new ribbon. She had always felt that red was her color, and usually preferred to wear her mother's red dresses over any other colors, she was very happy that the ribbon matched. Ceon ran off towards the house, so Senna quickly whipped her eyes and chased after him, the ends of the ribbon blowing behind her. "Hey, Ceon! Wait up!" She shouted, knowing that she would not get a reply, and that she could not hold him back any longer. Honestly, she was starving herself. He had worn her out in the woods, playing their games, and she had built up an appetite from it all.
It was not long before they arrived at the house, Senna arriving just seconds behind Ceon, out of breath. She pushed opened the door. "We are home!" She shouted. Ceon reached the door first and stopped as Senna caught up. He then stood there as she was out of breath and Ceon couldn't help but laugh. She then proceeded to open the door and call out. It was quiet and nobody seemed to be home. Ceon walked into the kitchen to see that dinner was already set up and a note was on the table. It was from Claire, Ceon's older sister. The note said-
Ceon & Senna,
Dinner is on the table. I'm sorry but one of the girls couldn’t come to work today so I went in. Also Ooji-sama [Grandpa] went to the town next door for neighboring plans to stay safe during the war. Stay safe and be good.
Ceon just set the note down and looked at the food. Claire must have left not too long ago as the food still looked warm. Ceon just waved and pointed at the note so Senna could look at it and he could dig in. Ceon sat down on one side of the table and smiled. This is kind of like a date! Ceon got a little red thinking about that and then put his hands together like he was praying and bowed. That was his way of saying Itadakimatsu. After that, Ceon feasted on the delicious Chicken Curry and dumplings!
Senna saw the note Ceon was trying to get her to notice.
"You know," She said for the millionth time, but quite fondly. "I would notice these things just fine if you would simply say 'look at this.'"
She teased him about his usual manner of not speaking, something she had done since they were children, and she would try to get him to talk, although it did not bother her. She had long since accepted him as he was, and would not change him if she could. She read the note aloud as Ceon sat down to eat. She knew there was no point in reading it to him, he had just read it himself, and she did it more out of habit than anything else. She nodded and set the note aside before taking her spot at the table, across from Ceon. She did see it as strange that the two of them were alone for dinner; however there was no one in the world that she would have rather had the company of then Ceon.
"Itadakimatsu." She said, bowing her head, and then she too began to eat. Occasionally she would touch her new ribbon with her free hand and smile across the table at Ceon, not saying anything. She did not have to. Ceon was a little bit of a messy eater. He would eat with his hands and not really obey table manners, but what do you expect? He's a 15 year old boy and all boys are messy eaters! Ceon would look up occasionally to see Senna touching the ribbon he got her. It made him happy he was able to impress Senna in such a way. If he could impress Senna every day, he would for the rest of his life! Senna was more than a sister to him; she was his best friend and his crush. He always thought she was pretty and he never had the guts to say it. Shoot, he never had the guts to open his mouth to anything really...
Ceon finished his meal but didn't move. He was a little comfortable sitting across from Senna, just the two of them. It was a lot like a date and it tickled Ceon inside. Someday though he will take her on a real date and it will be beautiful. She will be wearing a nice dress and he will be wearing a male kimono. They will go to a nice restaurant and he will give her flowers. That was his goal, to sweep her off her feet, but right now in this oppression from the war he couldn't do such...
At least not yet...
Ceon just waited until she was done eating with a smile on his face...
Senna was in many ways the opposite of Ceon. She slowly ate her meal, savoring every bite as if it was both the first and the last, and followed her table manners to the T, despite it only being the two of them. She also simply had more energy than him, or most people for that manner. While Ceon was the kind of person who did not mind laying face down in the dirt after a fall, Senna was the type that loved to move, and was frequently seen dancing whether there was music or not, or bouncing on the balls of her feet when she was excited. If anyone was around besides Ceon, she usually could not keep her mouth shut, always throwing in her opinion, or telling stories. When she and Ceon were alone however, she did not feel the need to do this. Between the two of them, sentences could be said with an expression, or a simple motion. She talked to him, a lot, but they could go hours without having to say a word.
She finished her meal, and stood up, taking his dishes and her own, and started to wash them carefully by hand. She had to be extra careful, they could not afford to break any broken dishes, and Senna had been known to drop a few. She did not enjoy this task, but did enjoy the act of accomplishing something, and since Claire had cooked, it was only fair.
Ceon turned and looked outside. The sunset was really quite something tonight as the clouds were gathering over the horizon. With that it gave off a reddish sun flare glow with a hint of purple. All the colors there showed something that reminded him of Senna in a way. Ceon turned and looked at Senna as the light from the sunset beamed in on her. Ceon's eyes open kind of wide as the colors from the setting sky bounced off Senna giving her a radiant glow. It was so marvelous really, and Ceon felt his heart skip a beat. He squirmed a little then stood up and walked over to the entranceway to the washing station where he waited and watched Senna wash the dishes. He wanted her to finish so they could do something like play a game or something else~
as she washed the light that was outside bounced off the curves of her dress and her hair. Her brown eyes looked as wonderful as the purple in the sky matched that of her hair, while the red mixed with the ribbon he had bought her. He was curious to the emotions he was feeling as he watched. Is this was that "love" thing was called? He didn't know for sure, but would he ever know? Ceon just let out a sigh as he eagerly awaited her to finish her task...
Senna carefully finished drying the last dish from their meal, and set it back with the rest of the dishes. She turned and sat back down at the table, across from Ceon, and gazed into his face as the light from the sunset shone onto it, highlighting his features. She smiled at him.
"So what now?" she asked, certainly not ready for bed. It was not often they had an evening alone together. Ceon watched as she sat down across from him. He just looked away for a moment, and then looked back at her. Ceon reached over the table and grabbed her hands and held them. He smiled at her and held them within his. He then kind of gulped for a moment there as this will be the furthest he's ever gotten, but Ceon leaned in and kissed her hands gently, then in a flash let go and ran. He threw the door open and ran outside down to the street and into the field across the road. There were a lot of rocks around. Large and small and Ceon went behind one of the large rocks kind of shaking...
Oh jeez, oh jeez, oh jeez...
Was what he was thinking.? He just stood there waiting, curious as to what would happen next? Is he going to get slapped? Is she going to make him become responsible and step up as a man? Is he going to get the next base? Immediately when he thought that he entered a world of his own, thinking about Senna...
Without the dress on. As he though such his face was red as he was in his own world not paying attention to the things around him. Senna wondered what Ceon was doing when he held her hands across the table. She was very surprised when he kissed them, her cheeks turned bright red, and she felt as though her stomach tried to jump a foot up in the air. She realized that this is what she craved, this is what those feelings she had been having had been leading up to, developing a more romantic, a more intimate relationship between the two of them, and by him taking this action on his own she felt that it was what he wanted as well.
Her heart suddenly sank as he ran out of the door. She thought that he must have decided he had made a mistake, and been embarrassed about it. While she had just suddenly realized she desired this more than anything, she pushed that aside. She could not force him to have feelings for her, and would not do anything he did not want. Senna could only hope that either he would decide this was what he wanted, or she would grow out of the feelings someday. In the mean time, Senna was filled with concern for Ceon. She hurried to the door, and looked out, but the sun had gone down too much for her to be able to see where he had gone.
"Ceon! Its okay, we can talk about it! Or we do not have to, just come back!"
Getting no answer from him, like usual, Senna went back inside and sat down, worried. She hoped that he would come back soon. It was about an hour and a half that Ceon was gone. He was scared to himself and thinking behind the rock about what he did and why he did it. It took him a lot of thought but it was what he knew and what he wanted. Ceon stood up and walked back with his hands inside his shirt. His head hung low as the recent thought of kissing her hands and then running off repeated in his mind. Why did he run? Why didn't he stay to at least see her reaction? She did he have to ask himself so many stupid questions?
Ceon reached the door and opened it slowly. He stepped in and didn't hear a sound and that worried him a little. He walked inside and saw some light from the back as an oil lamp must have been left on. Ceon walked and saw it was Senna sitting alone waiting for him. Ceon was so light and quiet she couldn't hear him. Ceon walked behind her and wrapped his arms around her coming to her level. His head dug into her neck as he held her close to him. As he did, small sobbing sounds could be heard as if he was crying. Ceon never cries and he wasn't, but it felt like he was about to cry for some reason. Quietly in the back of Senna's ear small words could be heard.
"... I'm sorry..."
He was sorry for running out on her. She was right; they should talk about it instead of just running away. All Ceon was ever good for was fighting, and running. He couldn't just stop for one minute and wait. She was right, and he was so sorry...
Senna had almost drifted off to sleep, there at the table, when she felt Ceon's arms wrap around her. Anyone else would have caused her to jump, as she had not heard him approach, yet she melted in his embrace. The one thing that did startle her, however, was the softly spoken words. She barely even heard them, despite Ceon hugging her when he said them. It was almost as if she heard someone outside the house say them. Senna assumed the apology was for the act of kissing her hands. She knew it; he had done it, and then regretted it. Her heart ached in a much worse way then before, but she did not let the ache touch her face.
"There is nothing to be sorry for, Ceon. You got carried away, that's all. I'm just glad your back."
The thing is, Ceon wasn't sorry for the kiss, he was sorry for running away. If anything he wanted to kiss her again. If felt kind of cool and the perfume she wore left a funny taste, but Ceon didn't want to get ahead of him. Doing that again would just be pushing it too far and childish really. When she said he got carried away he didn't really understand. Did she mean carried away as in running away? That was bad really. Ceon never wanted to leave Senna as she was the only person he really knew aside from Claire and Ooji-sama, so leaving Senna behind was something he never wanted to do...
Ceon sat next to Senna and just sat there looking at the wall. He wasn't really thinking straight and didn't know what to do. She was right next to him, and he was a little shaky. Was there something a boy was supposed to do to a girl to make them happy? FLOWERS! Ceon wanted to get her flowers but couldn’t! He didn't want to leave her side after all. SO he had to think of something to do that would make her happy. Boy this was hard to make girls happy. What was she thinking about?
Ceon looked at Senna and focused on her face, then her hair, then the ribbon. That was a nice ribbon he got her! Ceon just smiled a big grin then looked away. This was reeeeally embarrassing. Senna studied his face as he sat down next to her, plainly seeing that he was still embarrassed about the event, and would not let her go, however not knowing any better she still thought he was embarrassed about the act of kissing her hands.
"Fine..." Senna sighed. "If you won’t just put such a small thing behind you, then I guess I will have to help."
With that she reached out, and took both of his hands in hers. He marveled at how strong, yet gentle they were, and how large they looked in her delicate hands. She brought his hands to his face, smelling them. They smelled of the forest, where they had played together since they were children, even today. She gently kissed first one hand, and then the other.
Senna let go of Ceon's hands, and tried to gather herself. She was glad that the light from the lamp was so dim; maybe Ceon would not catch her blush. "There. Now we are even."
Ceon's mouth hung open when Senna kissed his hands. What was she doing? Wasn't only supposed to be guys who kissed the girls hands, not the other way around? This was really confusing! He just looked at Senna and the thing is with the lights all dim, he couldn't see her red face by somehow the room had an atmosphere. The lights were dim, the two young ones had a thing for each other, and they were alone. Ceon gulped down as he was nervous looking into the eyes of Senna. They were as beautiful as she sat there looking back at him with her happy-go-lucky attitude...
Ceon sat closer to Senna in hopes of maybe doing it again or something. He didn't know what to expect, but why not try right? How could it hurt? Ceon looked away from Senna trying to think how to do it? Ceon remembered at a restaurant that some guy just really close to the girl and kissed her all slow and all, then he remembers hearing about how a guy gets on top of a girl and does other things. This love thing was so confusing really~
Ceon looked back at Senna with a red face too. How should he do it?
Senna could see why Ceon had run after kissing her hands before, because now she had a strong urge to bolt for the door and disappear into the night. She fought back the urge though, trying to play the whole thing off as no big deal. Senna finally looked at Ceon's face, and seeing him blush felt like she had done the wrong thing.
Still, the feel of her lips touched against him, his lips touched against her when he had kissed her hands, these had been such powerful moments to her. She could not think of them as mistakes, not when they had felt so right. Yet the embarrassment on Ceon's face, the slight blush, these told Senna that he thought they were.
At that moment Ceon decided to use both methods he thought of together in hopes one would make her happy. Ceon quickly turned throwing both hands on her shoulders, and he pushed down, throwing her back and he looked down at her with big eyes still kind of scared. He gulped again knowing it's now or never, so he went for it. Slowly, Ceon closed his eyes and leaned in kind of roughly, but as sweetly as he could he placed a small kiss on Senna's lips. This was Ceon's first kiss and he didn't know if he was doing it right or not, but he put his heart into it!
Ceon held the kiss for about 5 seconds then threw his eyes open and jumped back now looking at Senna. His breathing was fast and quick as he didn't know what she would think. Was she scared? Was she angry? He didn't know! He just awaited her response now that she knew the answer...
Ceon loves her...
Senna suddenly found herself on the floor, with Ceon hovering over her. She was shocked, Ceon had never acted like this before, and for a moment she was afraid that they were being attacked, that somehow their village had been caught up in the war, and he was protecting her. Then it happened.
He kissed her.
Senna had hoped, dreamed of this very moment, but had never actually expected her first kiss to be from Ceon. She closed her eyes when she realized what was happening, and even after the kiss ended, she did not open them. She simply laid there, with her eyes closed, for a few seconds as Ceon looked down on her.
Finally, she opened her eyes and smiled up at Ceon. Without saying a word, she wrapped her arms around him and pulled him back down, this time kissing him.
She wasn't opening her eyes. This worried Ceon as he began to think he killed her! He was getting scared that he killed her! This wasn't good at all, because this shows that men kill woman with kisses and men are murderers! Ceon was about to run for help, but the pulling of someone's arm yanked his attention from his escape and pulled him back to those soft plump lips he was connected to. Ceon's eyes were wide open in shock as his heart was beating so fast he didn't know what to do. But this proved she was alive! So then kisses paralyze women!!!!
Ceon decided to investigate deeper into kisses later, he was busy~
Ceon wrapped his arms around her lower body, using his elbows to keep himself stable and up so that way he wouldn't fall on her or lay on her. He didn't want to squish her, even though he was only he was only 20 more pounds then her after all. Ceon was into the kiss now, as he closed his eyes and held himself there in her grasp. Senna and Ceon just shared their first kiss together alone in their home under the dim lights...
The spark of a young love for an eternity has begun~
Senna lost track of everything except the contact between her lips and Ceon's. She did not know how much time passed, and could no longer distinguish the end of one kiss, and the beginning of the next. It was if the dam had finally broken, and all of her love for him was flooding out. At one point, between kisses, she looked deep into the eyes of her love, and told him what was in her heart. "Ceon...I love you. I love you more than anything." Again, tears formed in her eyes, and this time they did fall, but she wore a smile on her face. They were tears of joy, of love. She had no idea what she had done to deserve someone like Ceon, but she was so thankful that she had him. Ceon felt the kiss break and he looked into her eyes. They were tearing up and the tears dropped this time. Ceon thought he hurt her, but when she smiled Ceon knew it was good! Then she responded with her love and Ceon was stunned. The color in his blue eyes began to fade in shock and he began to sweat. The word 'love' wasn't used around Ceon ever since his Parents told Claire and him that they loved him before getting killed before their eyes. Those words scared Ceon, because he thought he was cursed to see everyone he loved die around him, but with Senna, Ceon's felt so much happiness, friendship, and love. He couldn't leave her!
Ceon kept in contact with her eyes looking into the beautiful tan color with such care. Ceon decided right then and there while looking at Senna, that he will be her guardian. He will fight anyone and whoever tries to hurt her with his life. He will fight till his last breath and defend the best he can, and he will promise it with a kiss.
Before that kiss, three small words came from his quiet voice...
"I... Love you... Senna..."
Ceon leaned in slowly having their noses graze each other softly, and then he engaged their lips for a more passionate kiss. Ceon moved his arms from her lower back, up so that she was leaning into the kiss now from below him, and he didn't want to stop. He wanted this to be the most beautiful kiss he's ever given anyone, because that specific kiss meant he will protect her and love her for the rest of eternity, even beyond death...
Senna had never had a more tender moment in her life; she had never found herself filled with so much joy as she returned the kiss, not knowing what it signified to Ceon, but knowing that it was their first kiss after they each proclaimed their love to the other. That made it truly worth remembering, perhaps even more so then their actual first kiss. Senna knew that this evening would be forever locked in her memory as the best time of her life. Nothing would ever change how she looked back on this evening, nothing could ruin it.
Senna barely acknowledge the voice, it sounding like it was worlds away.
Senna finally broke the kiss, looking up into the face of her grandfather, the village leader, clearly returning from his business in the next village. Senna could do nothing but blush as she realized that Ceon was still on top of her, and they were lying on the floor.
that sound broke Senna and Ceon's kiss as they both looked to see the village leader, otherwise known as Senna's grandfather and Ceon's caretaker. The look on Ceon's face was priceless! He was wondering what Ooji-sama was doing back at this hour and how it was annoying it broke their kiss, but then Ceon looked back down, as his mind returned to him. His face grew red and steam came from his ears as he just remembered that: HE'S ON TOP OF THE VILLAGE CHEIF'S DAUGHTER! And to make it worse their age was around the time of marriage and all the other fun things! That was not good, because now this is going to be taken to a greater scale. At least Claire wasn't there to give Ceon hell really...Chapter 2: Arrival of the Queen
OH DAMN THE LUCK!
Ceon quickly rolled over grabbing Senna's hand and stood her up while helped her up. He CANNOT let Claire see them kissing or laying atop one another, it was bad enough Ooji-sama saw really. As Claire came around the corner and evil grin spread across her face. Ceon's heart was struck with fear at the moment as he didn't know what she was thinking till Claire pointed at the two...
"He's holding your hand Senna, doesn't that mean you two are lovers now~?"
Ceon looked down to see he was still holding her hand. GAH! DAMN IT ALL! CLAIRE AND OOJI-SAMA FOUND OUT! This is not good! Is Ceon going to get kicked out of the house? Is he going to get in trouble? Is he going to get crap from Claire the rest of their life? The last one yes, but the others? Who knows~
Senna's heart sank at hearing Claire's voice, announcing that she was home. Her grandfather she knew she could deal with, she might even be able to handle Claire, but both at once were the worst thing she could think of. Separately, she would have told different stories. Claire she would have confided in, although not the whole truth. Her grandfather she would have hid things from. It was not that she was ashamed of her relationship with Ceon, in fact she was proud. It was simply that for the past...she didn't even know how long, they had been laying on the floor kissing after finally sharing their feelings, and until they knew where they stood with each other, she did not want to share everything with anyone.
Claire would make fun of Ceon, Senna knew. On the other hand, Claire was Senna's closest friend other then Ceon, and she knew that Claire would be happy for her, for them. Her grandfather, chances are he would overreact in one of two ways. He would kick Ceon, and possibly Claire as well, out of the house, or he would force Ceon and Senna to get married immediately. Would Ceon want to marry me? Do I want to marry him? Yes, of course I do. But...I wasn’t expecting it so soon, before we could even sit down and talk...Would he marry me? Senna knew that her only chance to work things out for the time being was to separate Claire and her grandfather. Her grandfather already knew, so she would have to talk to him first, but there was still time to prevent Claire from finding out, if she could just act natural until Claire left the room-
"He's holding your hand Senna, doesn't that mean you two are lovers now~?" Claire asked, almost immediately after entering the room.
Mentally, Senna slammed her palm into her forehead as hard as she could. Okay, new plan. I have to lie to Claire, and tell Ooji-sama what is going on. She focused all of her willpower into sending Ceon just one thought. Ceon... My love, please do not believe what I am saying.
"Oh no!" Senna exclaimed in response to Claire's question. "I simply tripped and he was helping me up, that’s all. Thanks Ceon!" She removed her hand from his, though desperately wanted that contact between them to return. "Really?" Her grandfather asked. Senna froze. "Because from what I saw, you two were locked in a very deep kiss, down on the ground."
"What?!" Claire asked, excited. "I knew it!"
Senna's heart sunk. She was out of ideas.
That was all that was in Ceon's mind. He couldn't do a thing and just wanted to forget everything. If he could just die and start over he would, because this was going to be his end. His sister found out what happened and Ceon was going to get reamed. Ceon stood a little limp awaiting the punishment from Ooji-sama and the torture from Claire. It was about to be hammered down on the boy as he awaited his beat down. "Well, I guess that means my granddaughter finally found someone. I was afraid she would never find a man or someone to be with, but I guess she found one. Ceon, I'd be proud to call you my grandson~"
That made Ceon snap from a worthless attitude to a WTF!? WHAT WAS GOING ON?! Claire then jumped in with her evil antics, yet how cute she was, she loved torturing her little brother and little sister~
"OH! Ooji-sama, can I be the maid of honor!? Oh it will be so beautiful~ Senna and Ceon, ohhh myyy~ your children will be SO CUTE!!!"
Hearing Claire's words made Ceon fall face first into the floor. He couldn't help it anymore. He was hallucinating! I mean, Ooji-sama is a reeeeally nice old man, but he just saw Ceon kissing his granddaughter and Claire the most evil of big sisters was praising them! WHAT KIND OF EVIL ALTERNATE UNIVERSE IS THIS!?
But one thing is for sure...
Ceon and Senna knew their love for each other, and now...
Ceon felt like he could talk to her...
Senna stood there, stunned. She could not believe what both her grandfather and Claire had said. She decided she was dreaming, there was no other explanation. She and Ceon had fallen asleep when on the floor...no, the whole thing was a dream. That explained everything. Subconsciously she reached down and grabbed Ceon's hand again, and gave it a squeeze. This brought her to her senses, she knew it was real. For the third time that evening, she found herself near tears as she looked back and forth between the smiling faces of her grandfather and Claire. "Well, I think Ceon and I have a lot of things to talk about before we get that far...wait a minute, what do you mean you were afraid I wouldn’t find someone, Ooji-sama?!"
Senna glared at the old man in mock anger and they all laughed. "I didn't mean anything by it my dear, just that I never saw you with any boys other then Ceon, and well, I didn't think either of you would ever start anything, even though the rest of us knew you both wanted it." Her grandfather told her, winking at Claire, who smirked at them. Senna let go of Ceon's hand to rush over and hug first her grandfather, and then Claire. Quickly she was back by Ceon, holding hands once more. As far as she was concerned, she never wanted to let go. Ceon was still lying on the floor, facing the wooden ground as he felt Senna grab his hand. Then he felt her let go to go hug Ooji-sama and Claire, then grab his hand again, but this time when she grabbed it, it was tight, and something was behind it. Ceon looked up from the floor and looked at Senna as she was so happy holding his hand. He then looked at Claire and Ooji-sama, still thinking they are the evil twins of an alternate universe there to kill them or steal their kidneys. Ceon let out a long sigh as he stood up now standing next to Senna. The picture of the two next to each other holding hands was something quite beautiful really.Chapter 3: Communication
Ceon walked right passed Ooji-sama and Claire and took Senna outside. The stars were out and it was so beautiful! Claire wanted to follow for some more dirt on the two, but Ooji-sama stopped her and told her to rest, she's had a long day. Claire just smiled and went to the bath. Ceon took Senna over to a small creek and sat down on a nearby rock. He looked up at the stars as they were gleaming that night really brightly. He then looked at Senna as if he wanted to do something but it scared him. He took a deep breath, then did something really out of the ordinary.
"... I'm ready..."
Senna could not help but smile as Ceon led her out of the house, and to the creek nearby. They sat down, and she stared up at the stars in the same wonder she always did, never able to get used to the marvels held in the night sky. Each star hung like a jewel, appearing as though if she could reach high enough, she could take one.
She looked at Ceon happily, but he seemed to have a worried look on his face. Her face quickly turned to concern, and then he spoke.
Twice in one night... She marveled.
"Ready for what?" she asked, truly unsure of what he meant.
Ceon looked at her and smiled. A slight breeze blew by as he watched the red ribbon he got her glide in the wind. It waved back and forth gently as well as her hair. She had a concerned look, but what for? He didn't want to say anything that would concern her. It's just, Ceon always enjoyed quiet and especially since his parents died he never talked, but since Senna and he were open with each other now, it seems there is someone he can trust. To Ceon, trust was a huge thing as it signified the opening to a door of light, and that light is very sacred! In the case of Senna's light it was warm and loving, telling him that she was in love with him. That's when Ceon opened the door to his heart to Senna...
He grabbed her hands and looked into her eyes. To most men, a sign of trust to girls would be a kiss or a small gift, but he already did both, and to Ceon, the biggest sign of trust was his communication. He took another breath and then gave her the sign...
"To talk... To you..."
Senna's eyes grew wide. She knew what a big deal this was for Ceon. She had grown so used to his silence that she was used to it, and each time he said anything it shocked her. She loved hearing his voice, so soft, so full of emotion, as rarely as it was used.
Senna knew how important this moment was, and she could not bring herself to talk. She talked all the time, but this was Ceon's turn now. She could only nod to him, and eagerly wait to see what it was he would say.
Ceon could see that Senna could only nod and all. Ceon laughed at that and thought it was cute of her to give him a turn and all. He took a deep breath as this was not only big for Senna to hear him, but it was big for Ceon. He was coming out of his boundaries and going to speak. Talking was the reason his parents were dead and that's when he swore himself to silence, which was funny because people thought he was a mute anyways. Even before that dreadful day, Ceon would hardly or never talk, so this was indeed big...
"... I never really liked to talk. I believed that speaking and communication through words only lead to demise, drama, and death. Proof when my parents died. They didn't have to even talk, if they were quiet they could be alive to this day and still healing people, but because they spoke, they are dead now, and that image of watching them die before me will never escape my mind..."
His voice was kind of quiet as that subject was a very sensitive one, but then Ceon's eyes began to tear as he smiled looking at her with happy longing eyes. "But since we were kids and even to this day, I’ve had the biggest crush on you. I've always wanted to be that special one to you, I was just scared, but now that I know your real feelings I want to say it.... Senna, I love you..." Ceon then had a big smile on his face as the stars and the bright moonlight shun down on the two by the creek. This was something that neither should ever forget...
Senna was amazed, she had never heard him say so much for as long as she had known him, and it had been beautiful, making her both sad and full of joy at the same time. She had no idea he was even capable of expressing himself like this. For once, she could not find anything to say, even though she wanted to. Instead she simply kissed him. There, under the stars, under the moon, and the heavens opened up above them, they shared their most tender, and longest kiss yet. When she finally broke the kiss, she looked deep into his eyes, and found the words she had wanted. "You should never feel afraid to talk to me, Ceon, but I understand. I love you, I love you more than anything, and if you never say another word, that will not change anything. Yet, when you do speak like this, I will savor every word as I do now, and I will listen." She paused. "I did not understand my feelings before today, but whenever I am around you, I was filled with so much love and joy it almost hurt. I have wanted to be with you for so long too, and I never want to be away from you. I want nothing more than for us to be together for the rest of our lives, and our next lives, and the next, until the end of time."
She whipped her eyes before meeting his again.
"Will you accept me, as I am?"
When she delivered the kiss Ceon knew what she thought on his words. She must have appreciated it, and that was his goal. Ceon sat there as she spoke, taking in every word she expressed and said. Each syllable she spoke rang in Ceon's head as a melodic tune. Her words were so beautiful and the way she expressed them so whole-heartedly and it meant a lot to him. When she said in the next life and the next, Ceon smiled. He couldn't have thought any better really. Senna was his only friend and his love, and the fact she was so accepting of him no matter the case was a big relief.
When she asked if he would accept her for who she is, Ceon didn't know how to take that. What did she mean? Ceon would have easily agreed with the first statement but the second got him by surprise really. "What do you mean? You’re the same Senna I've always know! I've always accepted you as you are..." Tears freely flowed down Senna's cheeks, sparkling as they reflected tiny pricks of star light. "Because I am loud, I nag you too much, I know it! But you never seemed to mind..." She buried her head in his shoulder, wrapping her arms around him.
"Thank you." she whispered.
This night could not get more perfect...
Ceon listened to her when she cried a little exclaiming how she was loud and all that. Ceon really didn't mind, he actually thought it was funny! Come on, not everyone can be like him, otherwise the world would be too quiet. Senna made his world colorful and with expression, without her, Ceon would be dull and worst of all, heartless. She technically saved him from a fate worse than death. Her company broke his shell and brought him into the world.
As she buried her head into his shoulder, and she wrapped her arms around him, Ceon just did the same quietly. He just let his arms get a hold of her and he brought her close to his body. Senna really was a sweetheart and he wanted her to have everything. He wanted to be her everything, and she was his everything. His left hand stroked her hair softly as she cried in his arms. This night was beautiful indeed as the two together under the moonlight held each other in their arms spending together a true time of passion.
After several minutes Senna leaned back and whipped her eyes with her long sleeve.
"Oh, look at me, I am ruining this perfect moment between us..." she said as she dried her tears.
Senna looked back to Ceon when she was done, and again found herself not knowing what to say, so she said nothing. She looked deep into his eyes, feeling she could get lost in them forever, and cupped her hand around his cheek, gently stroking his face.
Ceon watched as she leaned back and dried her tears. She then looked at him with loving eyes and cupped his cheek. Ceon closed his eyes placing his hand over hers and then putting his hand on her chin. Her skin was indeed soft and smooth as he ran his hand along her jaw line. His eyes were into hers, as he leaned in slowly. He wanted to give her another kiss, and this time a sweet one. He was also hoping this time he would build up the courage for third base or something, so he would have to move now!
Ceon leaned in, but as he did, his balance on the rock was messed up. Ceon slipped down, and fell into the creek making a splash. Ceon sat in the water as his hair was over his eyes. Ceon's white hair was as long as Senna's but was always out of his eyes. Now it was in his eyes as the water dripped from his hair and soaked clothes. He was shivering as the water was really cold and he looked at Senna as if his cat just died. Ceon looked so sad because his chance for third base just went out the window...
Talk about fail~
Senna could not help but giggle when Ceon fell into the creek, and when he came back up, dripping wet with his hair in his eyes, her giggle turned into all out laughter. Senna held onto her sides, she was laughing so hard they hurt, and fell onto her back the opposite way that Ceon had fallen, so she landed on the ground. She quickly got up, and extended her hand to Ceon to help pull him up. "Come on, let's get you home," she said, with a large grin on her face. Ceon sat up and grabbed her hand shivering. It was so cold, and cold was not a great thing for Ceon. As she led him back, he moved his hair out of his eyes and he looked at Senna to see a large grin on her face. What was she grinning about? Ceon just looked at her getting paler and paler because of the cold. Her hand was warm as he held it in his hand and somewhat tightly because he didn't want to let go...
Each step was a slosh and he was dripping wet from all his cloths. His pants hung low and were covering his feet as his shirt was now open and revealing his chest. Ceon didn't mind that as he loved the loose feeling! It made him feel free and all, so he might do that from now on too! Hopefully Senna doesn't get mad that he will do that. Ceon and open bare chest might lead to bad things...
Or maybe not?
They approached the house and Ceon was going to head in back and prepare the bath. The best part is that there is a natural hot spring in the back of the house. Thank god this village was in the forest on the mountain line. Because of that the natural springs were nice. Ceon was going to get some warm clothes and and warm up in the spring and then go to bed. That sounded like a plan really! Nice end to a perfect day~
As they went inside the house, Senna verified her grandfather was asleep, however Claire was not. As Ceon went to take a bath, Senna was forced to share the details of what had happened with Claire. Senna could not mind though, she loved the chance to tell someone. She had hated the idea of keeping the relationship they were developing a secret.
"How long were you two on the floor?" Claire asked.
"I have no idea..." Senna confessed with a blush. Claire laughed.
Finally Claire went to bed, and Senna could feel herself coming closer and closer to drifting off, but she fought to keep herself awake, wanting one last kiss from Ceon on the first day they were together.
Ceon went in back to the springs and jumped in naked. He just sat in the water blowing bubbles and smiling while watching them pop. The memories of the day went through his mind as he sat there warming up. It was nothing he could ever forget really, as this was possibly the greatest day of his life since that horrid indecent! After about 20 minutes Ceon got out of the spring and dried himself off, then throwing some fresh clothes on. It was again long black pants, but the thing is, it's a warm night, so Ceon decided no shirt would be fine. Ceon threw his wet clothes on the line to dry and then walked inside to hear the house was quiet. He walked through the house to realize that everyone went to bed, but one light was still on! It has to be Senna.
Ceon walked in to see Senna getting sleepy once again. He walked in and shut the door behind up and just walked then sat across from Senna. He looked at her and smiling as to tell her he was all clean now and all warm. You could still feel the heat from the spring emitting from his skin...
Senna gave Ceon a sleepy smile, then again wrapped her arms around him and laid her head on his chest. She absorbed his warmth, feeling totally safe and at ease. She leaned up, and gave him a quick kiss, then leaned her head back into his chest.
Within minutes, she had fallen asleep, still sitting up, leaning on Ceon, breathing softly across his naked chest.
Ceon watched and then was shocked as Senna went into his chest and buried herself there. Ceon didn't know what to do really, but when she delivered that kiss, Ceon's face went completely red. He watched as she dozed off into sleep on his bare chest and it was so cute really. Ceon just put his hand through her hair and felt the beautiful softness that was there. Her hair was really nice for the living conditions of their town. Claire must be showing her some tricks if her hair is this nice.
Ceon slowly, without disturbing her, picked her up and carried her to his futon. He didn't think it would be bad if she slept with him really, so he placed her in his bed and then laid next to her. He without even thinking about it, latched himself to her by wrapping his arms around her waist and placed his head above hers so she could nuzzle in his neck. The two could sleep warmly together all night, without disturbance and share their first night together~Chapter 4: Development
"Geez you guys move fast."
Senna opened her eyes, hearing the voice. She wondered where she was, and felt Ceon wrapped around her. She had been dreaming sweet dreams of him all night long. She remembered holding him last night, and must have fallen asleep. She then realized that Claire had been the one to speak, waking her up.
"So, did you guys..." Claire started, but trailed off.
"No, it's not like that at all!" Senna responded quietly, not wanting to wake Ceon.
"Whatever. Ooji-sama has already left, and I am off for work. Just don't go at it like rabbits all day, okay?" With that, Claire left the blushing Senna alone with Ceon.
Senna carefully turned, trying to wake Ceon, so she could watch him sleep. Ceon continued to sleep through Senna and Claries conversation. He didn't want to wake either as his dream was of him and Senna together on a mountain top, the highest place they could go, and looking over the land holding each other’s hands. This dream was so marvelous it even had a happy ending for the boy as he dreamed it. As he slept, he stayed quiet, mouth closed and breathing from his nose. His arms were still wrapped around Senna as he didn't want to let go. He couldn't let go! He had to be with her, and he can't be without her. As he continued to sleep, a small mutter came from Ceon's mouth as he dreamed...
"Mmm... Senna... More..."
He was dreaming Senna and him were playing a fun game and she was wanting to stop. Ceon begged her to keep going because this was so much fun! As he slept, he moved closer to her, pulling her to him and being tighter. His warm body shared it's heat as his heart beat rapidly for her. All he had to do was see her, and his heart skipped a beat...
Senna really was his perfect girl~
Senna had never heard Ceon talk in his sleep before, but it sounded as though he was dreaming of her, just as she had been dreaming of him. Must be all that talking he did yesterday, maybe it opened him up some! Ceon pulled her tighter to him, as if afraid she was going to leave. The thought had never crossed her mind. Still, now he was holding her a little too tight, not enough to hurt, but enough to make her a little uncomfortable. And something did not feel right, something felt out of place. Senna's eyes grew wide. As they slept in the night, Ceon somehow ended up lower then Senna as his head was at her chest level now. As he pulled her in more and more, his head snuggled into her chest as he dreamed of the two together. His arms went a little lower and was now holding the top of her bottom as he continued to hold Senna. He was giggling and drooling a little for some odd reason no one knew. His dream was really pleasant, but the warmth and feeling he was getting was even better...
Suddenly everything cut short and Ceon opened his eyes a little to see his head was in her chest and he was wrapped to her. He looked up to see Senna in shock and he didn't understaaaaaaand till he felt what was out of place...
Ceon's face went red and he turned so quickly to bury his face and curl up in embarrassment...
Did she hate him now?
Senna did not know how to handle this situation. Should she be mad, or flattered by what had happened? Before Ceon even opened his eyes, she knew she could not be mad at him, and was trying to decide if she should act like she was. When Ceon did wake up, and realized what was going on, burying his head in her chest, she knew he was embarrassed about it. Senna realized that they were both overreacting. When they had decided they wanted each other in their lives for as long as they lived, they had decided they wanted all of each other. Senna simply had not expected to become so well acquainted with him so soon. When she considered it, she loved him with all of her heart, and she would not make any exceptions for any part of him. Instead of embarrassing him further, she would ignore it.
She stroked Ceon's hair, his face still buried in her chest.
Just how embarrassed is he, anyway?
"Good morning Ceon. Did you sleep well?"
Ceon didn't know how to react. He didn't know what to do even! Was this offensive to her? Was she instead happy by it? He didn't know how to respond! He didn't want to know really, so he kept his head in her chest not moving or showing his face. But one thing was certain and it was she smelt very good. Ceon took a deep breath and inhaled her scent and began to stroke his hands rubbing her back, trying to calm her down if he could. After she asked Ceon the question he looked up at her scared. His face beet red and he took a big gulp as he tried to smile at her. His smile was really pathetic really. He did like his dream, especially the part where they played together. It was so fun and really something he'd treasure forever...
Senna smiled, comfortingly. She could tell he was very embarrassed, and while she was too, she couldn’t stand seeing him in any kind of discomfort. She doubted she ever would.
"Good, good. Me too. Sooo..." She trailed off, glancing down in the direction of their feet. She loved him, she loved ever part of him, but it was quite awkward, and not getting better. "I'm going to get up...to make us breakfast."
She did not move however, she was stuck in his tight embrace.
Let her go...
Let her go...
Let her go...
Ceon finally loosened himself and let go of her. As he did, he rolled over laying on his other side away from her. He didn't want to get out from under the covers and reveal his 'problem'. He just tried to play it off like he was going to sleep a little longer and he waited. He needed her to leave really quick so he can jump out the window and pour cold water on himself. Ceon has heard that was the best trick to removing problem's like his....
I'm sorry~ was all Ceon could think for 'touching' Senna so inappropriately. Senna got up quickly. What an awkward way to start our first morning together. I just know he feels bad...maybe I should say something. "Uh...Ceon? It was...nice." She blushed and hurried into the kitchen to start working on breakfast for the two of them.
WHAT WAS THAT!?
Ceon quickly burst up to look as Senna had run off. It's funny really, both of them are hopeless. Ceon shows a bit of affection and he disappears, and Senna does the same from the looks of it. They were indeed young, but love was so strong in them. Ceon looked down at himself, and adjusted so he can show himself in public without embarrassing himself...
Ceon then got up and walked downstairs looking around the corner to see Senna cooking. She was so beautiful in the morning sunrise, especially with it being fall out. The colors of the horizon with her natural array makes her beyond the most beautiful thing he's ever seen. Ceon slowly walked up behind Senna and wrapped his arms around her waist and nuzzling his face in her neck. She said she thought it was nice? Well he'll show her nice...
He'll show her REAL nice~
Senna squealed loudly when Ceon wrapped his arms around her. She had not heard him coming, and hadn't expected him to follow so soon. She felt his face on her neck, and giggled.
"Ceon, stop, I'm going to burn the eggs!" She said, playfully, and clearly not wanting him to stop. "What's gotten into you this morning?"
She whipped one hand on a towel, and took Ceons hand, squeezing it gently.
No, this is how I want to wake up, ever day, for all eternity...
What's gotten into him? She has gotten into his heart, taking him by control. He didn't know exactly what he was doing, but something was telling him how to do it. He just followed this intuition into showing affection towards Senna. His right hand was being gripped by hers gently, and he moved his wrist so he could grip back. His left hand then began to explore her curves as he was curious about her and wanted to get a good feel...
He then smiled gently and planted a small kiss on her neck, then down to her shoulders, slowly moving the dress she was still wearing out of the way. Her dress hung off her shoulders as he kissed her neck and shoulders while holding her there. Ceon's heart was beating really fast as he followed it when it told him what to do. He must be doing everything right he guessed. Senna stood there, not sure what she should do at this point, but making no move to stop Ceon. She wanted this, she knew that she did, and if he felt that they were ready, then she would do anything he wanted. Ceon then carried her into his room that morning where the two shared their first intimate touch together and made love for the first time. At the end of the session Ceon and Senna laid together as the morning sun peered through the window.
This was Ceon's opportunity. He didn't want to leave her, but he had to quickly clean the mess the two made and pick her dress up, and get dressed. Claire and Ooji-sama would be back within an hour or two and he had to make sure they didn't know. Ceon very gracefully escaped Senna's grip and got to the edge of the bed. He looked back at her sleep. Her beautiful naked body at such peace and Ceon loved her every curve and detail. She was so beautiful it really took his breath away. Ceon got up putting his loin cloth back on as well as his Samurai bottoms. Then he got a work shirt with no intention of closing it, and just letting his bare chest show. It's how Ceon was really...
Ceon picked up her clothes in the room and her dress in the kitchen so nothing suspicious would be seen. He proceeded to kiss Senna sweetly on the forehead then head out. Ceon had to earn money and fast. There was one last thing he wanted to get for Senna he knew she deserved...

Chapter 5: Family
Senna woke up a couple hours later, finding herself alone in bed. She felt lonely without Ceon, this was the first time they had been apart since all of this started yesterday. She sat up, letting the blanket fall off her as she realized she was still naked. She got dressed, and walked out of Ceon's room. Claire was in the kitchen. Senna froze when she saw her, unable to hide a guilty look on her face.
"Well, I already figured you guys did it." Claire said, jokingly. Senna did not say anything. "Well come on, it's not like we didn’t expect it! We leave you alone all morning...so come on, tell me about it."
Senna smiled. "It was incredible..." she started. She did not go into much detail on what all they did, but explained her feelings while they did it as best as she could. She could see Claire was truly happy for her, which made Senna feel good. Claire's understanding and acceptance was important to her, not only as Senna's best friend after Ceon, but as Ceon's sister. The two continued to talk for hours, giggling here and there.
It's been hours and hours as Ceon has been out. Ceon got many jobs while out to earn some money as he had something he wanted to get for Senna. He would have to keep it a secret though. Ceon spent the past many hours chopping wood, Selling goods to travelers, and delivering parcels for the day. It was long and Ceon was really breaking up a sweat for doing so much in a short time. With the money he had, it was about half of what he needed to earn. So Ceon decided to call it a day and get the next step ready. Ceon returned home but didn't go inside, instead he went to the back yard to look at the stars. The day was long and a minute to look at the stars was really nice to do. Ceon sat down at the porch as he looked up. His shirt barely hanging on his shoulders, and his chest was just sit there. The stars gleamed so beautifully he couldn't believe how wonderful the world was. Senna and him were together now, he was going to marry her, and they will have a kid! It was life was going so fast he couldn't handle it really...
Ceon then began to think what he wanted to do with his love this beautiful clear night. He believed the field on the edge of town would be perfect for a little night date. Just the two of them, and some sake for a little drink. Just to look at the stars with her and maybe talk to her a little would be great! Ceon found such happiness talking to her, and so he decided that he will talk to her tonight till her heart fluttered...
He wanted to make her the happiest woman alive!
Ceon continued to sit on the deck though looking at the stars. He wanted to think for a moment...
Claire and Senna put the finishing touches on the evening meal. As Claire was making sure the fish was cooked to perfection, Senna was setting out the bowls of rice. She sent a worried look in the direction of the door, and not for the first time. Ceon had been gone a long time, and she was worried about him. She had no idea where he had gone, or when he planned to come back. Part of her was nervous that he had gotten embarrassed and run off like he had before, but she knew that was not the case. She knew that she had his heart, just like he had hers.
She sighed, longingly, again thinking of her dreams of the future with Ceon. Claire rolled her eyes, and kept working on the fish.
They did not set aside a plate for their grandfather. He was away at yet another village. It seemed that the war was coming in their direction after all, and though it was unlikely to reach this far, the villages did have to be prepared. In times like these, the war didn't always directly cause problems. The fear of war could cause people to do strange things, and break laws. Ceon let out a long sigh and decided to go inside. It was almost dinner time anyways, and he was getting really hungry! Ceon stood up and opened the back door now looking at Senna setting up the rice bowls and looking at the door. Ceon was wondering what she was looking for so he stood right beside her and looked in the same direction with a confused look. Was she looking for someone? Ceon didn't even notice Claire in the room as he was distracted at looking at Senna. She was so beautiful with her purple and red Kimono. The bow on the back was quiet large, so Claire must have helped her.
"WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN!?"
Ceon jumped so high his head almost hit the ceiling from Claire's bust. He didn't expect her to scream so loud at him! Ceon just looked at her rubbing his head a little. He was tired from working all day and he had to return to a loud mouth sister? Ceon was getting a little sick of her bossing him around anyways, but he still loves her. Ceon stood up and just kissed Senna on the cheek and walked to their room. Senna's things were moved into his room from the looks of it while he was gone. Ceon looked at everything and smiled. He then proceeded to get some fresh clothing from the cabinet and change. He was wearing a black Samurai pants and a black top again undone revealing his chest. Ceon popped his neck walking into the room and watching the girls with a smile...
Senna jumped when Claire yelled. She had not known Ceon had come in, expecting him to come in the front door, since the back door was rarely used. He kissed her on the cheek, and walked off. Senna lovingly touched the spot on her cheek where she could still feel his lips, and continued setting the food on the table as he came back in.
"Well, come on, it's going to get cold!" She told Ceon as she and Claire took their places. Senna was a little disappointed that Claire was home for the evening, she had been looking forward to a possible repeat of the morning with Ceon, but she knew that they would not be very quiet about it. While Claire knew, it was still best if they did not rub it in her face. Senna was unusually quiet over the meal, sneaking happy glances to Ceon, and smiling whenever his sister made fun of him. Claire was always picking on Ceon and acting bossy, but she loved her brother, Senna knew.
Ceon took his seat across from Senna so he could look at her while they ate. Ceon loved Claire's cooking as she was wonderful at the little restaurant she served at. It was really a nice time to have a meal together, but every time Claire shot a comment Ceon's direction he almost snapped. Claire keeps picking on him and it's so annoying! Ceon ate his fish silently and rice every now and then constantly looking at Senna across the table and getting red in the face. He wanted to have that sweet moment with her again, but Claire was off tonight and he didn't want to be anything like quiet today. Ceon let out a sigh as he was finished. He excused himself and took his dishes into the kitchen and set them in the sink that was full of water. Ceon then walked out and went back outside onto the deck thinking. He wasn’t thinking straight and was trying to grasp a bit of reality here...
Claire looked at Senna with an annoyed look...
"I swear you give your heart up to him, and he's going to be stupid. All men are like that, including my brother... Why you think I got 20 of them wrapped around my finger?"
Ceon could hear her, but didn't care. He wanted to think of some things like...
How will he propose?
Will Senna and him get another private moment?
Will his first child be a boy or girl?
Will be a successful samurai and be able to protect all his loved ones from the war?
He didn't know and needed to think...
Senna ignored Claire's rude comment. Claire could be like that sometimes, and Senna was not interested in hearing it. She finished her food, and went outside to sit with Ceon. She sat down next to him, and rested her head on his shoulder, looking up into the night sky. "It's beautiful out tonight." She whispered, happy to be able to share this moment with him. All that she could hear was his soft breathing and the crickets surrounding the house, just adding to the mood.
Ceon felt a head lay on his shoulder as the whisper that came from nowhere sounded like an angel speaking just to him. Ceon looked over to see that Senna had rested on his shoulder and was talking about the night. It was indeed but what really was beautiful to him was Senna. The way the moonlight bounced and reflected from her skin was so amazing it made Ceon get a little red. Ceon took his hand and turned Senna to face him as he gave her a beautiful kiss on the lips. His right arm was by her lower back bringing her closer to him and he held the kiss under the moon light.
It was so peaceful for the two~
Senna happily met the kiss. It was not a lustful kiss, yet it was full of passionate. They did not use their tongues at all, but it lasted for several minutes as they held each other there on the porch.
Yes...I could spend the rest of my life doing this... Senna thought.
After the kiss ended, they sat back, gazing off into the sky, simply enjoying being near each other. After a long silence, Senna asked a question that had been bugging her.
"Ceon, what do we do now?" She knew that they could not stay in her grandfather's house forever. He would not mind keeping them, but it was not a large enough house to have them start a family in with her grandfather and Claire there as well. Neither of them had a job, so they could not afford to find a place to start a family. She did not go into details regarding her question, she left it at 'what do we do now?'
Ceon felt Senna break the kiss and then go back to resting with him. When the question was asked Ceon paused. This is what he was thinking about the whole time to himself. He didn't have a solid job and Claire was paying for his schooling. The only thing a Samurai could do were fight wars, but Ceon wanted to use his skills to protect Senna and Claire from anything, that's why he was training. The money he got today is what he was saving for the gift he wanted to get Senna...
Ceon spoke quietly...
"We grow up. We will experience life together. Be together and do everything together. We will share our ups and downs, and we will share every moment... Do you like the sound of that?"
That's all Ceon could come up with at the time. He didn't know how else to say it, and that was the best he could come up with to her question. He just began to hang his head low. He wanted to give her everything, but because of the war and the inflation Ceon couldn't help bring ANY money in whatsoever. He needed a job to work alongside his schooling so he could take care of Senna and raise a family. He wanted to do everything for her, so she could be happy...
Senna smiled as she heard his answer.
"I love the sound of that." she replied, meaning both the sound of his plan, and the sound of his voice.
With that she knew that everything would be alright. No matter what, they would be together, and they would find a way to make everything work out. Senna decided that she could not let Ceon do all the work, so she would see if she could get a job at the restaurant that Claire worked at. But her mind was at ease, no matter what, things would be fine, and they would only have happy days together ahead of them. Ceon was getting a little warm under his shirt, even though it was open revealing his chest. Ceon let out a sigh as he could hear Claire mumbling and complaining inside. It must have been something about one of her 20 little boyfriends. Ceon just let out a sigh hearing it, then as Senna confirmed his request Ceon smiled inside. She liked it! Ceon had to be a man now, he's 16 and will have to do everything to take care of a family. Get a job selling medicines or crops, then build a house and work with family on a lot of things. Ceon wanted to live a long and peaceful life with Senna and didn't mind how it was done.
Ceon looked up at the stars making a wish that night that no matter what fate brought them, Ceon and Senna would always find a way to be together, no matter what! Ceon got annoyed of Claire's bickering and looked at Senna with loving eyes...
"Want to get out of here?"
Senna nodded, and stood up.
"Where should we go?"
She wanted to get away probably as much as he did, if only so they could be fully alone. Claire did not really bother her all that much, usually, however she felt that this was their moment, belonging to no one but Ceon and herself, and she did not want to share it with anyone else. Ceon watched as she stood up. She was so cute the way she was, and it made Ceon smile big at it. He chuckled a little at her response as it seemed she was excited! Ceon wanted to be somewhere peaceful and alone with her, as we all know 16 year old who are in love don't want to be around anyone else but their significant other. He began to think about where they could go to be alone at a beautiful night like this. Ceon then began to remember about the fields on the outside of town where the view of the mountains is utterly breath taking.
Ceon stood up next to her with a smile and took her hand.
They may be adults now and all, but they are 16 and they can still have fun! Ceon walked a little fast heading in the direction his parents showed him before they died. That would be the perfect spot for him and her. He lead her to the path that led out of town and soon headed to a path that forked opposite of the creek that led into town and through some trees. Ceon had the biggest smile on his face and wanted to take her there. He was so excited to get there and show her, his heart was burning for her reaction, and they reached it!
The mountains over the horizon and the moon starring down at them, the stars beautiful and Ceon stopped and marveled at it. At that second, he turned and both of Senna's hands looking her in the eyes. The tall grass around them, making a beautiful scene for any lovers...
Senna was starting to wonder how far they were going, as he took her down trails she did not know existed, when suddenly they arrived. Senna's breath was taken away as she looked out across the fields. The moonlight was bright enough to outline the mountains, and the trees so they could be seen clearly, but loomed mysteriously in the night.
She turned and met Ceon's gaze, staring back deep into his eyes. She again felt like she could get lost in those stormy eyes, and never want to come out.
Ceon looked deeply into her beautiful light brownish orange eyes. They were so beautiful, as if he could just look into them the rest of his life really. Ceon pulled her small body closer to his as he wrapped his arms around her waist. She was so petite in size and Ceon loved it. It was perfect to him, as if in the image of a goddess really. It must have been fate that brought them together all the years ago, when Ceon first met Senna as kids. While his parents healed the injured and Senna's grandfather tried to run the town, Ceon and Senna would play together as their parents did whatever and Claire would of course be flirting, but what do you expect from the most beautiful girl of the county?
Ceon loved his sister, but sometimes she just drives him insane...
As Ceon held Senna in his arms, he would think about the future of how this war would be over and they would have a nice small house together, some kids, and they could sell Medical herbs or maybe crops. Senna could care for the children and they would be happy. It was perfect really, and Ceon wanted to build to that promise. Tomorrow, he will purchase the item of eternity and hold it before Senna in hopes that she will accept him.
Senna reached out, and stroked Ceon's face lightly with her right hand.
"My love, tell me, please just tell me that we will be together until the end of time. If you say it, I know it will be true. If I can just hear the words..."
Senna smiled, hopefully. Her eyes sparkled with the reflection of the moonlight.
Ceon smiled at her and closed his eyes feeling her touch to his face. It made his heart beat a little faster as he then brought her hand to his lips and kissed it gently. He then looked back into her eyes with them half open and smiled as he took in her scent. She smelt better than this morning when he got her in the kitchen. Her eyes were so lovely with the moonlight reflecting off them. Ceon did want to say something but it wasn't those words...
He got right next to her right ear and whispered into it very softly...
"I want to be yours for eternity... Let's be together, forever, even after time stops..."
He didn't care if the world was going to end or anything, he wanted to be with her and share his life with her. He wanted to be her everything and do everything with her. Holding her hand, running with her, holding her, crying with her, fighting for her, anything to defend her honor and so she will gladly speak as his wife.
That had a nice ring to it for her...
Ceon proceeded to kiss her ear gently as the warmth of his body was being shared with her. His heart beginning to beat faster and faster. He was in love, and this is where he wanted to spend the rest of his days... Beside her in beautiful scenery. Senna's heart skipped a beat, hearing Ceon's words. She felt warm all over, like that morning when she had first shown him her body, and he had explored it. She could believe his words, with all of her heart.
"Ceon...I'm already yours. Forever and ever." She whispered back into his ear.
She wrapped her arms around him, hugging him to her. She wished they could stay like this forever, never have to worry about what came next, the war, any of it. Just be in each other's arms until time stopped.
Tomorrow was going to be a big long day for Ceon, so he wanted to make sure they were well washed and rested, even though he felt fully energized and alive for some reason...
Senna got dressed and followed Ceon back to the house with regret. It had been so beautiful out, and they had shared a perfect moment together. She knew it had to end, but did not expect the end to come so soon. Still, he seemed to want to go back, and she would follow him anywhere.
Even as they walked into the house, she could still feel his seed inside of her. It made her unbelievably happy to be carrying around part of him like that, as if a constant reminder of how far they had come in such little time.
"Well, you two sure have been gone a long time!" Claire said mockingly. Senna's grandfather sat next to Claire, giving them a strange look. Senna's face turned beet red. She was not ashamed of what they had done, or her love for Ceon, but still, getting caught and called out on it was quite embarrassing for her.
Ceon walked in with Senna with a red face still after hearing what she told him. As they walked inside, Claire's voice stopped Ceon and Claire in their tracks. The looks they were receiving weren't all that wonderful either. Did this mean Ooji-sama was going to kick him out? Ceon's face went from afraid to that of serious. He stood in front of Senna defending her from them, and that was his job as her soon to be husband, to be her protector and defend her honor. As he stood there giving them a serious face, Claire broke into laughter. Ceon suddenly felt like he lost all his balls and Claire was turning him right into a child before everyone...
"Brother dear, Ooji-sama and I already talked. We are proud of you two!"
Ceon was stunned. His sister stood up for him and Ceon was beyond thankful for it. Ooji-sama gained a smile too as they talked and he was proud of his Granddaughter. She finally found a man and he has a man he could proudly call Grandson. Ceon jumped up and gave his big sister a hug as she held her little brother in her arms smiling as if she wanted to cry...
"Go on little brother. You two are going to have a long day tomorrow... Clean up and go to bed now..."
Ceon understood and without hesitation, grabbed Senna's hand and pulled her outside to the bathhouse. His face in such happiness as today was the most perfect day in his life. Ceon and Senna have fallen in love, made love to each other, as well as gained approval from their only family left. It was indeed a magical night! But soon, the good fortune turns sour as the selected 3 were in a destructive path that would lead to having one of the greatest legacies of all time...
Chapter 6: Calm
Senna finally let herself breathe a sigh of relief as they entered the room with the bath. She felt like she had been holding her breath since they walked into the house.
"Well, that was about the last thing I expected from them." she told Ceon happily. "They truly accept that we are in love, and what we are doing."
The two bathed together cleaning one another then dried off and headed back to the house.
Ceon took her hand and led her through the house quietly to his room. As they got to his room, Ceon shut the door behind him and Senna as he walked over to his futon and sat on it. He looked around a little bit as it was a comforting atmosphere really. Ceon just laid back as his back rested on the bed and he looked up at the ceiling. Keeping his mind straight to think was kind of hard as Ceon liked to think of a lot of things! He just laid there for a moment then looked over at Senna. He sat up and held his hand out to her...
He wanted to put her to bed now...
Senna took Ceon's offered hand, and sat down next to him. She moved as close as she could to him, and hugged his arm close to her. She laid her head on his shoulder and closed her eyes, with a small smile on her face.
Senna focused on Ceon's rhythmic breathing, and entered a state just before sleep. She felt totally calm, and safe there with him, and wished for the hundredth time that day that they never would have to move again, that they could just stay like that forever. Knowing this to be silly, she enjoyed it while she could, matching her own breathing with his. After a few minutes of this, Senna's breathing slowed down, as she finally drifted off into sleep, still wrapped around Ceon's arm.
Ceon felt her get right next to him and latch onto one of his arms. as she laid there in the dark Ceon just looked at her as she focused on his breathing and laid her head on his shoulder. She was so light it was like she was so small and Ceon could just hold her forever. As she drifted off to sleep, Ceon could tell she had left him to wander in her dreams, while still latched to his arm. Ceon used his other arm and pulled the blanket over them and the pillow under his head. It would seem she will sleep on him, and he didn't mind at all. As she laid there, Ceon leaned over and kissed her forehead and petted her head a little with a smile. Shortly after Ceon also fell asleep, ready to begin his next day of heart filled joy with her...
Senna was the first to wake in the household. She lay there, watching Ceon sleep for several minutes, and then quietly snuck out of the house, trying not to wake anyone.
Outside she twirled around laughing with a joy of a girl in love, but that was not all that had her spirits raised so high this morning. She stopped, and with one hand touched her stomach, looking down and smiling at it. She had dreamed last night that she was carrying Ceon's child, and they both had been so happy and full of love for one another. Although she could not possibly tell after only one day if she was in fact pregnant, it did not matter to her. She was determined to keep trying with him until it was clear that she was.
She made her way to the small fenced area where they kept their four chickens so she could gather any eggs that she could find and work on breakfast. Her heart sank as she got near and saw the fence had been ripped out of the ground, and there was no signs of the chickens. From the look of this, someone had done it. Senna knew that the war was making people desperate, and people were passing through the area with ill intentions, however she had never expected it to come to their own home. Still, she was thankful that the mischief was limited, and none of her family had been hurt.
Senna went back to the house, and started working on the rice without the eggs, setting it and some dried meat out. She decided to go to the market later that day. With breakfast ready she went back to the bedroom she shared with Ceon, and leaned down, kissing his cheek several times in different places.
"Ceon, it's time to get up..."
Ceon felt the numerous pecks to his cheek as his eyes opened just barely. Ceon sat up with his white hair all messy, his kimono half off, and drool out of the left side of his mouth. Ceon's sat there and blinked a couple times not even thinking, just starring. He was so tired, he couldn't even process anything at all. Ceon looked left and right, then fell back laying his head on the pillow again and going back to sleep. He was so tired and drained he didn't want to move, just sleep...
Senna sighed. Ceon was always like this, never a morning person. She was not especially annoyed by it, nothing Ceon did really annoyed her, but for the sake of keeping tradition, she had to act like she was.
"Come on, Ceon, it's morning already!"
"Breakfast is ready..."
Senna got a mischievous gleam in her eye, as she reached over, and pinched him hard on the butt. That was something she had never done to try to wake him up, but she was feeling playful. She was hoping they would go off and play ninjas in the woods again today, and if it went to something else, she didn’t mind that much either. A loud yelp rang from the boys mouth as the pinch in the butt hurt a lot! Ceon flew from the head to the side of the bed onto the floor, bringing the blankets with him and looking like a real mess. Ceon then slowly grabbed the top of the blanket and pulled it down getting it out of his eyes. Ceon looked over at Senna with a curious look as he felt like she did that on purpose. That really hurt too! Ceon scrambled out of the mess and tossed the blanket onto the bed as the top of the Kimono was off and around his waist showing his upper body. The lower half of the kimono was a little low showing his lower abdomen, but that’s how Ceon loves it really. The free feeling was what he loved most in the world and he would do it every day!
Ceon walked over to Senna kissing her gently on the lips then walking past her without thinking, and running into the wall. Ceon still wasn't fully awake and he couldn't tell himself what to do yet. Ceon stood with his face in the wall for a moment, then took a sidestep to the door and was now looking into the hall. Ceon held his hand out to her so she could accompany him to the table.
Ceon was going to eat and even though he wanted to play, he couldn't. Ceon has to get work done that way he could get her one of the most precious gifts he can find...
Senna sat down across from Ceon and started to eat the food set down in front of her. She wondered if she should tell him about the chickens being stolen, but decided against it for now. She would tell her grandfather later, and allow him to deal with it.
She looked across at Ceon as he was eating. "What are we going to do today Ceon? It looks like we have the whole day to ourselves again, just you and me! We can do whatever you want!" She smiled, wondering what he would want, and what she wanted to do most as well. She found herself at an awkward stage, still wanting to play and be a kid, but having been woken up to the possibilities that being a woman provided, she found herself torn. She decided it best to leave the decision to him. After all, she would be happiest knowing that Ceon was happy as well.
Ceon lazily ate the food before him with his eyes half open and hair still a mess. Slowly he would put the meat and rice in his mouth and slowly chew as if he were some old person trying to eat. As Senna spoke to him, Ceon paused with the chopsticks in his mouth and looked at her, listening to her speak. Thinking ahead of her asking Ceon remembered he had to work today so he could get the rest of the money he needed so tomorrow he can go and buy her gift.
Ceon mumbled a little with the chopsticks still in his mouth then realized no one could understand him...
"I got to work today..."
Ceon HAD to get that money by tonight...
"Come see me at lunch and walk me home?"
Senna was unable to fully hide her disappointment at not being able to share the day with him.
"Alright, that's fine. I need to go to the market today anyway. I will meet up with you at lunch."
Her shoulders slumped forward a little, but she finished eating and quickly began clearing the table, making sure to leave food out for Claire and her grandfather, who had not yet gotten up. She started washing the dishes, telling herself that they had all the time in the world to be together, she could wait a few hours. She started planning what she needed to get that day, and what she would make Ceon for lunch.
Ceon knew she was disappointed in the answer. It was not only obvious in her actions but also in her tone of voice when she agreed to see him for lunch and to walk with him home. Ceon knew she would be upset, but what he was working for was going to make her so happy, she wouldn't have to worry about it. They had the whole evening together and they could spend some time together, plan their future, names of kids, kids of houses, kinds of jobs, and everything! Ceon really knew she was upset when she took his dishes and he wasn't done eating yet. Ceon looked down at the table a little upset and almost took Claire's food, but his hand was slapped as Claire already woke up and saw him going for her food. Ceon grabbed his hand kissing it and letting out a small tear.
Ceon let out a heavy sigh going to Senna and wrapping his arms around her and planting a small kiss on her neck. Breathing into her neck and taking in her scent as he rested on her. He held her there for a moment so she would know everything would be okay and they have nothing to fear. Ceon planted one more kiss on her neck before he pulled away and headed to his room. He needed to get dressed and prepare to head to work. Today he had wood to cut, students to train, as well as goods to sell and help prepare medicines. Hard to believe he could do all that in 10 hours. Ceon got dressed and headed to the front deck where he stood in his black samurai pants and open white samurai shirt showing his chest again. In his right hand he held his Wakizashi, his best weapon as Ceon didn't fight the style of a Samurai, be more stealth with Ninja-like skills.
He took a deep breath of the morning air, then began to head off for the day...
Senna smiled as he kissed her, clearly trying to comfort her. She was not mad, she was a little disappointed, but she understood. After Ceon left, she got to his dishes she had taken from the table, and noticed there was still food on it. She put her hand to her mouth as she realized what she had done, and how it would have seemed to him. No wonder he felt like she was mad at him!
Senna felt bad, and decided to make it up to him later, in any way she could.
[Several hours later...]
Senna was walking down the street in the middle of town, looking for Ceon. She realized, after he had left the house and it was too late, that she had no idea where she was supposed to meet him. He tended to pick up odd jobs, and for all she knew he was off at some farm, or chopping down trees in the woods. She hoped to spot him amongst the crowd, but so far had been unable to. She held the basket in both hands in front of her, afraid someone would grab something out of it when she was not looking. People were just like that those days.
Ceon was found in the middle of the street with his shirt off with 2 kids in front of him. The kids were holding wooden Katanas and Ceon was just bare handed with a smile on his face. The kids were in a proper stance as they awaited to order to begin. Ceon waved his hand as the two students ran at him and both tried to strike downwards. As they looked, Ceon was no longer there, and their swords were in the dirt. Standing behind them was Ceon as he taped them on the shoulders with a big grin. Ceon then smacked their heads together and jumped back laughing. Ceon aside from a traveling worker, was also a student teacher of his dojo that Claire paid for. Ceon by far was the most successful of his class and was given the title of Student Sensei about 4 months ago. Ceon's style was indeed unique as he was the only one in the region who could wield a Wakizashi as well as be so agile in his movements.
The students got to their feet and handed Ceon some money before bowing. Ceon bowed back with a happy face then left the students. Ceon almost had enough money, he's been busy all day. He chopped wood for 2 hours, helped dig crops, and prepared medical herbs, but the one that took the longest was the training and teaching. Teaching students the basic defense to defend themselves from others especially against the war was the best pay and thing Ceon could do for anyone.
As he wiped his brow he pulled out a small sack in his pants and counted the money inside. He was seriously ALMOST there. One more day of work and he will have all he needed for her gift. Knowing about it made Ceon smile so big...
He looked up the road and saw Senna there. He waved at her with a smile on his face...
Senna saw Ceon down the street waiving at her, and rushed over to him smiling.
"Well, Horeru-kun, did you have a good day?" she asked, after she caught up to him. She could see that he was happy, and sweating a bit, but it was a warm day out. She noticed the bag he was holding, but could not see what lay inside of it.
She looked over and saw two young boys, rubbing their heads at the same time, but on opposite sides. Seeing the look on Ceon's face, she quickly figured out what had been going on. She knew that he considered it training, and it was, but she saw no reason for him to be so rough. Reaching into her basket, she took out two small apples, and gave one to each boy, with a smile. The boys thanked her, and ran off.
Ceon saw she had her basket as she approached. Oh boy was he hungry! After she took his food this morning and all the work he's done, he was starving! When Senna called Ceon by the nickname he couldn't help but turn red and smile. It was so cute really, and he greatly appreciated it. Ceon saw her give her student’s apples as their faces lit up with glee. By doing that Ceon realized how Senna would become such an amazing mother. So caring and looking after the wellbeing of others before anything else. Ceon just put his little pouch away in his pants and then put his shirt back on, letting it lay lazily off his shoulders. Ceon then grabbed Senna's hand and walked with her down the road a little as he wanted to go back to that spot with her...
Where they saw the mountains in Japan, and shared their magical night together...
Senna let him lead her along, although she was not entirely sure where they were going at first. Their house was in another direction, but she figured that he had somewhere else he wanted to take her.
She wondered for a minute why he was working so hard. It was not unusual for him to put in days like this, however it was strange for him to work two days in a row, except training others at the dojo. Usually working every two or three days helped provide all the money they needed, combined with what Claire and her grandfather made. In that regard, Senna did not help at all, however, she managed the house and the chores there, except when Claire cooked. Everyone in the family pulled their weight, and they got by better than most. Still, Ceon's usual pattern was to do a couple days work in one day, and then take two or three days off before working again. She wondered what he was up to.
Finally she noticed where they were going. It had been dark the night before, when they had gone to this spot, so the path they were taking seemed very different, but as soon as she saw the mountains, she knew exactly where they were. She could not help but glance at a spot where the tall grass was flattened against the ground from two people laying on top of it. Ceon with glee led her to the spot the two laid before. From that night on, this area became their spot to share for eons. He then used his shirt as a padding on the ground to protect them from dirt. Ceon never minded being bare chested as he enjoyed it more than just wearing one. He then as a gentlemen guided her down and then joined her atop his shirt at their spot in the grass starring at the mountains and the creeks that flowed between. It was so beautiful as it was the simple things in life really that made people so happy!
Ceon looked at the basket with curiosity as he was wanting to know what she brought! Oh Ceon was so hungry he could eat ANYTHING! Literally Ceon was starving! Ceon looked like a small Hungarian boy who hasn't eaten in weeks. As he waited eagerly he places his Wakizashi on the ground lightly next to him, not letting it leave his sight. He wouldn't dare think about letting his Wakizashi out of his sight...
Senna sighed, leaning on his shoulder.
"I didn't think the view could get more beautiful than it was last night, but I guess you proved me wrong. There isn't a cloud in the sky today..." she said dreamily.
After a few minutes, she started sorting through the basket of food she had bought from the market. Most of it was for dinner that night, and breakfast, but she pulled out a couple apples, a loaf of bread, a large piece of cheese, and some fish wrapped in large leaves that was still warm. She moved over on the shirt, and set the food down between them, so it was not sitting on the ground. Tearing off a small piece of bread, she gently placed it in Ceon's mouth, and giggled at the action.
Ceon listened to her talk about weather for a second and Ceon's attitude went from 'FOOD!' to 'Oh... I guess...' Ceon felt her lean against his shoulder and he looked at her with caring eyes as she did. Ceon then watched her place numerous items out and his mouth hung open wide at the selection. The apples looked marvelous as did the bread, cheese, and fish. The cheese really caught Ceon's attention as it was so hard to buy cheese these days, but with Claire working in the restaurant it must have been easy. Ceon then noticed how Senna placed some bread in his mouth.
After sharing lunch together for a few hours and loving the scenery of the Mountains, the two decided to head back…
She grabbed Ceon's offered arm and rested her head on his shoulder as they walked. She loved resting her head on his shoulder, it wasn't so much that it was soft, more that it was his. It was his, and because of that, it was the most comfortable place in the world. She closed her eyes and let him lead. She trusted him enough to know that he would lead her down the safest path.
Chapter 7: Downfall
They walked slowly together, enjoying themselves, not rushing to get back. This was a seldom used path, so they were completely alone, and Senna was quite happy for that. She thought she heard a twig snap, off to the side, but when she looked into the trees, she saw nothing. She looked at Ceon, wondering if she was hearing things. Ceon smiled as they headed back to the town with her head on his shoulder. She seemed so happy and he liked that really. As they walked they finally got to the main road and headed back to town as it was about a good 20 minute walk. Senna looked at Ceon as she heard the twig snap and Ceon's face was already serious...
He knew what was about to happen...
In a flash, a large man wielding a large axe jumped for Ceon and Senna swiping at them horizontally. Ceon saw it ahead of time and used his left hand to throw Senna down, then with his other hand grabbed his Wakizashi and held it so the blade was facing out and the back was along his forearm. He held it like that to hold more defense so that way he can withstand the attack. The attack hit and Ceon used the momentum to jump in the air doing a side flip. At the highest point of the jump the large man looked up to see Ceon upside down in the air with a grin on his face as 2 kunai flew from Ceon into the large mans shoulder. Ceon's aim needed some work as he was aiming for the heart. Ceon landed in an offensive position as he was about to go for a kill, when he noticed another from the right and a 26 inch katana. Ceon quickly threw a Kunai into his mouth and used 2 hands for the Katana. A strike from above and Ceon side stepped as the man then went for a frontal stab. Ceon jumped and landed on the blade pushing it down with his feet. Taking advantage of the moment, Ceon grabbed the kunai from his mouth throwing it at the man’s feet stopping his movement, then swiping at his neck with the Wakizashi. Blood poured from the man’s throat as Ceon slit his throat holding the intent to kill.
Ceon was about to take out the large man till he heard a loud shriek. He turned to see 2 men holding Senna and touching her inappropriately. Ceon was getting angry as their filthy hands were all over his woman...
One of the men that was holding Senna's neck with a blade to it had the most evil of looks. These men obviously wanted to hurt Senna and Ceon wasn't going to allow it. The man holding the blade to Senna's throat grinned as he licked her cheek and Ceon just about lost it.
"Now now kid. Don't want me to kill your lady friend now do we? We are soldiers of Lord Valios. Don't want to piss us off or we will kill more than just her... Now she's going to pay your debt for killing one of our men, oh! And one of your hands... Shao, would you please?"
One of the men that was touching Senna inappropriately began to snicker as he pulled a dagger from behind him and walked closer and closer to Ceon. Ceon just waited a little longer and watched in anger as the man that spoke began to feel her up. Senna cried as she was being harmed and Ceon lost it there. Ceon threw a Kunai right by the guys face to force him to stop. Blood began to pour from where Ceon grazed his cheek and an evil grin came over Ceon's face as now he had blood on him. The man holding Senna watched as his man fell to the ground dead with 7 Kunai to his chest and throat. Ceon managed to use one hand to silence him with a kunai to the throat, then the rest to his chest. The man was about to slice Senna's head off, but before he could, Ceon's teeth grabbed the blade as Ceon had fire in his eyes...
The man was about to run, but too late...
Ceon shoved his Wakizahi into the man’s side...
He fell back as blood poured from him and Ceon caught Senna. It was okay, he was there now. Ceon was going to carry Senna back, but before he could a large pain suddenly stuck Ceon. The large man still lived and Ceon forgot about him. The large man used the blunt end of the axe and it threw Ceon a good 7 feet as he tumbled on the ground. Ceon couldn't move as his small body was so hurt from the blunt object he was out of breath. He looked up to see Senna and a tear dropped from his eye...
Was he really going to die here???
The Man took his Axe and raised it above his head, with the intent to behead Ceon...
Ceon laid there unable to move...
What could he do?
The man froze as he was just about to bring the axe down on Ceon to finish him off. He looked down to the source of his sudden unexpected pain, and saw several inches of blood stained steel sticking out from inside his chest. He dropped down to his knees, and slumped over, already dead. As soon as he fell out of the way, Ceon was able to see Senna, she had been standing behind him. Tears were freely flowing down her face, but her face was twisted into an expression of pure rage. With both hands she held the katana that one of the men Ceon had killed had been wielding. Senna had picked it up and acted as soon as she saw Ceon in danger, not even thinking her way through it.
Senna herself was a mess. Her ribbon had been pulled out of her hair and discarded on the dusty road, so her hair hung freely down to her shoulders. Her kimono was ripped a little. Her hands were squeezed so tight around the katana's hilt, her knuckles were white. Looking at Ceon, her face turned from that of rage to realization of what she had done. Sweet, innocent, peace loving Senna had just killed a man. She had done so to protect her love without thinking, and yet, she was not the kind of person to do such a thing, to even think of such a thing. She fell to her knees, sobbing loudly, squeezing her eyes shut and looking down towards the ground as if trying to get away from the images going through her mind.
But no matter how hard she cried, no matter what she thought of what she had done, her hands stayed tight around the hilt of the katana, her knuckles white from the strain. She did not let go, or relax her grip. Ceon was able to catch his breath and tried to sit up. It hurt so much as it would seem that a rib was broken or something. Ceon pulled himself up as he looked down to see the large man who was about to end his life dead. Ceon didn't understand how that happened until the katana landed before Ceon and Senna was holding it. Ceon then realized that Senna is going through her first kill. No one should ever have to bare that experience as it's the most painful feeling in the world. The reason Ceon could do it was because he personally with his sister watched his parents get cut down, and that was what opened Ceon's mind to the art of combat. Ceon looked at Senna's face as she was so scared crying to herself. Blood on the back of her Kimono from when Ceon stabbed the man behind her, and over her hands when she stabbed the man about to kill Ceon. Her right skin and undergarments exposed from the rip of the other men. Ceon crawled over coughing up a little blood as the hit was so powerful to Ceon. When he reached Senna both of his arms wrapped around her as he tried to help her feel better. He was there, and he was going to protect her from all that is bad...
"THERE THEY ARE! THEY KILLED THOSE MEN!!!"
Ceon turned to see more men wearing the same uniform as the ones they just killed. Ceon would not allow them to place another hand on Senna, so fighting to stand Ceon stood up. He was hunched over as the pain was almost too much for him but would not falter for her. He then began to walk to them as they all drew their blades with eager intent to cut Ceon down. Ceon's chances of survival here were less than 1% but he continued on. Finally all the men ran to Ceon with blood thirsty eyes and Ceon just smiled at them welcoming the chance to kill more of those ungrateful war dogs...
10 feet before they struck, a rock his one of the men in the face and the brigade stopped looking at their fallen comrade by a rock. Ceon also looked surprised as he turned to see Claire there with a pissed off look. She had a rock in one hand and a frying pan in the other. Her face scared Ceon as she now held the intent to kill. Ceon has never seen his sister with such a look and his heart felt fear from it. The men were going to now cut Claire and Ceon down, but Claire let out a loud whistle as suddenly from all directions the young men from town who were attracted appeared. They all held tools, weapons, and such. The brigade ran in fear as Claire's groupies chased them down...
Ceon smiled a little and let out a small chuckle...
He then turned and looked at Senna, but before he could say anything, he passed out from the intense pain...
Senna did not move during the second battle, except for slight shaking as she cried. In minutes, her entire world had been turned upside down, she was almost hurt, her life was threatened, she saw Ceon hurt and then she...she...
Claire crouched down in front of Senna. She was quickly able to figure out what was wrong, if only due to the fact that Senna was still holding the katana covered in the man's blood.
"Senna? Are you okay?" Claire asked, gently trying to take the katana from her, but Senna's fingers would not budge. "Senna, come on now, it's over."
"C-Claire?" Senna asked between sobs.
"Shh, it's me. It's Claire, it's alright now."
"I killed him...I killed him..." Now that Senna's eyes were open, they were locked on the body of the man.
"It's okay Senna, you didn’t have a choice. There was-"
"It's not okay!" Senna yelled, cutting Claire off. "I did not want to kill anyone!"
Senna continued to yell at Claire, knowing that Claire had done nothing to deserve it, but because she did not know what else to do. Finally, unable to reason with her, Claire gently but firmly tapped her on the head with her frying pan.
It was night out. Senna, much more composed, stared at Ceon's still unconscious form with a look that showed that she could not believe what had happened. She had been watching Ceon for over an hour, his wounds were dressed, but he had not moved on his own yet.
Hours passed as the boy laid in pain covered in bandages. It was determined by the doctor that Ceon sustained a broken rib, 2 fractures, and many other damages. He should be fine after some rest and all. The doctor also reported that the evil lord that killed Ceon's parents had his men released, and those were his men. It was like Ceon's past was coming to haunt him all over again. Claire didn't know if they should run or not. The town has been very peaceful and this was the first sign of anything in years. Maybe it will all just blow over in time...
After some time, Ceon awoke slowly and in severe pain. He was in his futon covered up as Senna was sitting there looking at him. Ceon turned a little and looked at her with eyes of concern. He was so sorry for everything that happened. If Ceon could have, he could have killed that other man without being careless and not taken the hit, then Senna would have been fine. But now Senna had to live with herself for actually killing a man. Ceon wanted to sit up and give her a kiss, but he couldn't move. It hurt so much to even breathe...
Ceon was looking forward to that bath too...
For a few seconds, after Ceon woke up and looked at Senna, her face did not change. She simply stared back as if she did not really see him. Then, her whole face lit up in a smile.
"Oh, Ceon!" She exclaimed, rushing to him and very gently hugging him, careful that she did not squeeze too hard and hurt his ribs.
"I'm so glad you're awake! The doctor said you were pretty banged up, and you broke a rib, but you should be fine as long as you stay in bed and get plenty of rest. It looks like Claire saved us, well, her and all of her boyfriends saved us from the second group of bandits, and you saved us from the first. You were amazing back there! I didn't know you could fight like that!"
She spoke fairly quickly, acting happy and excited. If one didn’t know what the two had just been through, they would never have expected it to be an act.
Senna had had plenty of time to reflect. She knew that she had protected Ceon, and that if she had not he could have been killed, or at least hurt much worse than he was now. She knew that she should not make such a big deal about killing the man, and tried hard to bury the memory and not think of it. Instead she would focus on tending to Ceon.
Ceon watched for a second as it was like she didn't even see him. But after that second Senna's face lit up in joy as she hugged him softly minding his broken rib. She then began to speak so fast that Ceon could hardly keep up. She stated that Claire and all her little groupies saved Senna and him. It was a good thing because Ceon didn't want to die so young really. Ceon looked at her face carefully with his eyes half open. She was masking her true emotions and it wasn't hard to see. Senna has never killed anyone before and it's a real life changing experience. Ceon was able to do it and move on because of what he's seen when he was a child and he's been training all his life.
Ceon tried to sit up. He didn't want to rest, he wanted to be up and moving around. A bird with a broken wing can't fly and Ceon refused to be grounded. Ceon was not going to allow his freedom to be taken from him. It was unbearable pain at first trying to sit up, but Ceon managed to get there. He sat up and took a few deep breaths finding out where his injury was. He gently placed his hand on the injury and could feel the gap indicating the broken point. It wasn't bad, but was annoying to have, that was certain. He looked around the room to see the sun had gone down and a oil lamp was lit for the two in his room. He was on his bed and Senna was by him most the time...
"I'm sorry Senna... I was careless..."
Senna looked at him as though he had just admitted to setting up the ambush himself. It was absurd to her that he would feel responsible for what happened. After hardly a moment's pause, she answered in the same tone of voice she had been using, acting very happy and speaking very quickly.
"Oh, it was not your fault, Ceon! You can’t blame yourself, and after all, it was thanks to your bravery that I was not hurt at all, just a little shaken up. Really, there is nothing to be sorry for!"
Senna truly did not want him to worry about her, and had decided that any emotional suffering she had gone through, she would work out on her own. It was not that she did not trust Ceon, quite the opposite, she knew that he would obsess and blame himself. Senna thought the best plan was to act as though she had already moved on, and in time, she might be able to.
She could tell from the look of concern on Ceon's face that he did not fully believe her. At this point all that remained to be see was where he would take it from there. She did not think he would push the issue
Ceon listened to her as he looked away. His face was so dead as if he was emotionless and non living. He didn't deserve to live for his careless action and he completely disregarded his training. Because of that Ceon hated himself and swore he would never again be careless, that he will fight till his last breath. That is what he would have to do to repent for his carelessness on the battlefield. Senna's mask was too clear, as Ceon could see through it. Now the fact she kept trying to be happy right now bothered him more from his loss, and how Senna had to dirty her hands on that man’s life. Ceon felt so pitiful...
Turning towards her, Ceon felt a sharp pain in his chest, and it caused him to cringe in the shock. He could feel a very bitter liquid in his mouth as his lungs took damage from the blunt hit and Ceon bled a little. Blood came from his mouth, but he kept turning fighting the pain. Ceon the collapsed on Senna's lap as he dug his head into her stomach and wrapped his arms around her. While he did Ceon began to sob and tears flowed from his eyes. Ceon might be a killer, and he might be Senna's man, but Ceon was 16 and still a boy at heart. The fact that Senna was violated, and he was careless bothered him so much. If only he wasn’t so selfish and took her to that field, if only he wasn't so careless and killed that man, if only they would have went somewhere safe none of this would have happened at all. Ceon felt so guilty and hurt that it was his curse now. Ceon's life was to be filled with despair from the day his parents were killed before his very eyes.
Ceon cried lying in Senna's lap, from the stress and guilt from the earlier day...
Senna's heart ached in her chest as Ceon buried his face in her stomach crying. She wrapped her arms around his head, trying to comfort him.
"Oh Ceon, it is okay. Everything will be fine..."
Senna felt awful, she never wanted to see Ceon like this, and even though she truly believed none of it had been his fault, she was afraid that she would never be able to convince him otherwise. That hurt her more than anything else that day had. She slumped over as much as his head in her lap would allow, and began to silently cry.
The two stayed like this for hours, until Senna finally got them both into bed. She continued to hug him close, even after she had finally cried herself to sleep.
Ceon felt Senna hunch over and try to comfort him. Ceon couldn't help but feel guilty as if he wasn't so careless Senna would be okay and Ceon wouldn't be so hurt. It was all his fault and he couldn't defend them properly. It was all a mess and he should have been a man to help her. Instead he was useless and now Senna had to pay the price for Ceon's misfortune. Finally after some time, Senna got him and her to bed as the two held each other through the night and all the way till morning where they didn't disturb each other.

Chapter 8: Death
Ceon awoke the next morning to the sound of loud thunder. He looked to see Senna was still asleep and just smiled a little at her. Ceon gently got out of her grasp kissing her on the forehead and then sitting up. Ceon still felt the pain, but it was settling now which was good. Ceon was able to stand up and walk slowly as he did to the window and looked outside. The rain was coming down hard and lightning stuck as the thunder rolled in the background. It was really a downpour out there, but Ceon had to get Senna's gift today. Ceon was lucky it wasn't sold yet so he had to get it without a doubt, but he will present it on a nice day to Senna at their special area.
Ceon managed to get dressed without hurting himself as he then made his way out and got an umbrella from nearby. Ceon planned on getting it then heading back for some rest. Ceon was still tired and the pain bothered him quite a bit anyways. As Ceon was about to step out, Claire was standing behind him holding her arms to herself looking at Ceon. Ceon stopped and looked behind him to see her beginning to cry. Why was she so upset? Claire then began to speak as her voice was a little scratchy from her crying...
"Ceon... Be careful and run if anything happens. You have me and Senna now. Don’t let us lose you too... Please..."
Ceon just looked back at her, then looked back into the rain as it poured heavily. Ceon then stepped off to go get Senna's special treasure. It was a ring from another land with a purple stone that shined different colors in the sunlight. Ceon HAD to get it for her...
As Ceon left on his way to retrieve the gift Claire began to cry a little harder in worry of her family’s survival...
Senna woke up to a loud sound off in the house. Not fully awake she looked over and saw she was in bed alone. Wondering where Ceon had gone, and worried about him, she slowly sat up. She knew he was not supposed to leave bed for at least a couple days, though the doctor had recommended a week.
The sound of something shattering came from the kitchen. That got Senna's attention, and she snapped wide awake. The bedroom door was pushed open, and dashing into the room Claire slammed it shut again, holding her body against it.
"Hide!" She said, looking at Senna. "They are here!"
Senna dashed over, trying to get out through the door. "Where is Ceon?" she yelled.
"No, don't!" Claire hissed, keeping her from opening the door.
"Ceon! I have to find Ceon!"
About 20 minutes after Ceon had departed he was heading back holding a beautiful silver ring. The stone on top wasn't big but it was purple and shined different colors when in the light. Ceon smiled at it as he was heading back. He walked along the town’s main road heading back under his umbrella as the rain poured around him. As Ceon walked back he felt funny for some reason. It wasn't a good one either and it gave Ceon a bad taste as he didn't like it at all. As Ceon walked he looked left and right to see houses and shops closing as Ceon walked.
This isn't good news from the looks of it. Ceon walked over to an old woman who was packing up her shop and getting ready to take shelter. Ceon walked up to her with a confused look on his face.
"Ceon get out of here now. The Evil Lord who killed your parents. His men are back. Get your family and run now!"
Hearing that Ceon stopped as the umbrella dropped from his grip. The man that killed his parents was returning with his army? Was this because Ceon killed his men? Was it because he wanted to see something? All that was going through Ceon's head was revenge for the death of his and Senna's parents, but as Senna popped in his head, Ceon remembered...
THEY ARE IN DANGER!!!
Ceon with all his strength sucked up his rib injury and ran. He ran as fast as his body would allow. He was about 3 minutes from the house at his current pace as the rain fell upon him soaking him. Ceon clinched his left fist so tight that the ring cut into his hand as it bled out. Ceon had to get to them before anyone else did. He can't lose anyone else, his parents were too much, and he can't handle being alone, not anymore!
As Ceon ran, he tripped and fell into the mud. He could feel his ribs hurting so much as he just wanted to lay there. He didn't want to get up, but he had to. Ceon slowly got to his feet as blood poured from his hand and mouth. Ceon again began to run...
He had to save his family and his love...
The door slammed open, throwing Claire and Senna back across the room. Senna looked up slowly, seeing the feet of a very large man. Through the feet she could see the body of her grandfather, blood still pouring from his chest.
"Well look at what we have here boys..." The man said, mockingly.
Senna forced herself to look up, and saw the man's grin as two more men entered with grins to match.
"Should we have some fun with them, or just kill them?" One of the men asked.
"Only two of them, and three of us. Guess we'll have to take turns with 'em." Another answered.
"Can't let good meat like this go to waste after all." The first man said, laughing.
Senna and Claire both looked panicked. One of the men grabbed Claire, throwing her on the bed laughing. Another grabbed Senna, but she bit down into his arm as hard as she could, until she could taste blood.
"You bitch!" the man roared, slapping her so hard she fell down, halfway on top of the bed next to Claire. "You are going to pay for that."
Senna squeezed her eyes shut, not knowing what else to do. She only prayed that Ceon was far away from here, safe, and would not get back until the whole thing was over.
Suddenly one of the men died that were in the main room as they were showered with Kunai to the back. A silhouette came up to the dead man, decapitating him and then walked as blood poured from all over. Steps were taken as in the room where Senna and Claire laid in fear of being hurt from the other three men, was dead silence. The three men looked out the door watching and waiting to see what happens. Finally, something was thrown in as the men jumped to see it was the decapitated head of one of their allies. Fear hit all their hearts seeing the head of their comrade on the ground. Did one of the groupie men of Claire come to help?
In walked Ceon holing his ribs breathing deeply as a Kunai was in one hand and his Wakizashi was in the other. Ceon will not let them harm the girls. The men suddenly grinned looking at an Injured Ceon before them. One of the men that were holding Senna down drew their blade as he grinned at Ceon.
"Well aren't you the boy from yesterday? Ha-ha, your nothing now punk!"
He charged at Ceon, but before he even got close, slashes were made from all angles from what seemed lightning fast and untraceable. The man fell to his knees dying on the ground from the cuts Ceon delivered. Ceon took a step, then another towards the other two grunts with the intent to kill. His eyes narrow and filled with blood lust for the men that were about to do very harmful things to his family. The other two men backed up in fear from what they saw. Ceon was a demon and he was going to obliterate them, even with his injury only fear was in the minds of the evil men.
Lightning cracked outside as the silhouette of Ceon took shape of a dragon behind him. What seemed like the storm was on Ceon's side was beginning to take fury in his soul. Ceon has lost his parents, injured as his soon to be wife was almost hurt, and now they are back for more? They will all pay by Ceon's hand.
Ceon was about to cover the air in their blood until, a sudden pain filled Ceons stomach. He didn't know what it was as he paused. Suddenly, blood spurt from Ceon's mouth as he looked down to see a sword through his stomach. Ceon slowly turned his head to see HIM! The man that killed Ceon's parents and led the war to Senna's family’s death. Ceon was beginning to fill with rage. He wanted his head NOW! Ceon grabbed the blade in his stomach and pushed it back, as he spun around trying to slit his throat, but he missed and grazed his cheek as blood poured from Lord's face. Ceon fell to the ground and tried to get back up but it was so hard. His broken ribs and the stab through his stomach hurt so much. He tried to get up, he HAD to get up, but blood kept seeping from him as his mouth as he gasped for air. The men picked up Ceon's arms as he faced Claire and Senna now. The Lord had a pissed off look on his face as he looked down on the only boy to injure him.
Ceon was beginning to cry with a small smile on his face. He did his best, but it would seem Ceon has to meet his end here. It was all over for him...
Claire starred at her brother in shock. Claire couldn't move from the shock of seeing the man that not only killed her parents and killed Ooji-Sama, but made her life a living hell. It was too much for her as she just sat there in utter disbelief...
3 words escaped Ceon's bloody mouth...
"... I love... You..."
And at the end of that, the Lord's katana was then seen going right through and piercing Ceon's heart. Ceon looked down in shock seeing the end of the blade pierce through his heart as he felt darkness overcome him. The last thing he saw was Senna and Claries face before hitting the ground and then looking at a wall. Slowly darkness began to engulf him more and more as he couldn't feel and see anything anymore. As Ceon laid there, a small ring fell out of his top and landed at the edge of the futon near Senna's feet...
It was the engagement ring he wished to give her to be his wife, now sitting in the blood of her dead husband...
Senna stared, dumbfounded, unable to cope with what she was seeing. Her mouth hung open, but she could not make a sound. She looked into Ceon's eyes, hearing his words, and watching him die. Her stare was broken by the ring, as she watched it roll across the floor near her feet as the blood of the man she loved pooled around it.
"YOU BASTARD!" Claire roared, charging the Lord who just killed Ceon, but he easily swatted her away. Claire's head hit a wall, and she did not move.
Wordlessly Senna lay down, in the growing pool of Ceon's blood, facing him. She reached out, and took his hand, lacing their fingers together.
"Burn it down." The Lord said. One of the men through down the family's oil lantern on the bed where Senna and Ceon had first made love, and it quickly went up in flames. The Lord smiled, shutting the bedroom door, and he and his men exited the house.
Flames cackled all around them as the room slowly turned into a blazing inferno, but Claire still did not move. Senna never noticed, she still lay looking into Ceon's open, but lifeless eyes, holding his hand.
Despite the sounds of the fire, a rafter falling from the ceiling near Senna as it burned, the whole world was dead silent.
"Wait for me Ceon. I'm right behind you. I will catch up to you, and never leave your side."
Senna welcomed the warmth of the flames as they licked her skin, remembering the joy Ceon had taken in doing the same. She welcomed the taste of smoke as it entered her lungs. Her purple hair began to singe, and the ribbon that Ceon had given her the first day they admitted their love for one another slowly caught fire. Senna welcomed it all.
After what seemed like eternity, Senna forced herself to turn her last breath into those three words she could have never told him enough.
"I love you."Chapter 9: Memory Rosary
It was dark...
A long path stood below Ceon's feet stretching to a long path. At the end of it was a bright white light that was so warm, but below the path was what seemed to be endless storm clouds all black. It was dead silent in this area as Ceon didn't know what it was. He stood there with blood at his stomach, heart, and mouth, looking as he did when he died. Ceon lifted his left arm to see that the ring was gone from his gasp. Ceon's emotions died that night as he couldn't feel anything else right then and there. As he stood there he looked to see what looked like a small boy walk by. The small boy was bleeding from his back as it looked like he was cut from behind. He walked towards the light with a smile as others soon began to follow. Ceon watched as people walked by him onward to the light entering the unknown domain.
Finally Ceon was alone again and he didn't know what happened. Was the entire Village destroyed? Ceon didn't see Senna or Claire at first, so they must have gotten away. That is good really. As Ceon walked a little bit he walked to the center point of where he started and the bright light looking down again. The storm clouds were what looked like reversed as they should be in the sky, but instead they were below him for some reason. Ceon turned as he was now facing the edge of the path and his feet close to it. He then heard a familiar noise.
He looked left to see his Sister with a cut to her throat standing there and Senna appear soon after with burnt clothing. So they didn't live after all...
Ceon couldn't see them anymore...
He wanted to forget...
He wanted to forget everything and start all over...
As he thought that, he fell, and welcomed the world of the clouds. As he fell a red ribbon appeared around tied to his left arm as he then vanished into the roaring clouds. He disintegrated into the world of forgotten memories as when he vanished, a loud crack of lightning went off...
Kaizaken has accepted his suitor...
Senna was standing in a field, a familiar field. Above her the sky was pitch black, the clouds were so thick. Lighting flashed all around her, and the thunder roared louder then she could have ever imagined anything could be. The air was dead still, and from the smell of moisture in the air, a storm was about to begin the likes of which this land had never seen.
Senna saw Ceon and Claire. It was only for a moment, as if they were lit up by one of the flashes of lightning, and then they were gone. Senna had seen the blood on both of them though, and she knew what it meant. She looked frantically around, but could not find them again.
Her eyes landed on their spot. The spot that would forever be special for her and Ceon. The grass was no longer bent, and there was nothing there to identify it in any way, but she knew exactly where it was. A tear fell from her right eye and rolled down her cheek, and she frantically looked away, trying to focus on what she was doing there.
So you wish to forget it all then? A voice deep inside of herself asked.
"No..." Senna whispered in response. "How could I give up those memories? Memories are all I have left...they are the most important thing to me now."
A wind picked up, and rain started to fall in small drops.
The wind picked up, and the thunder and lightning came even more frequently. The rain came much heavier, turning into a pour, and instantly soaking Senna, but she did not seem to notice.
I cannot bring myself to see you in this kind of pain though, as it brings even greater pain to me. I shall let you keep your memories, but I will take away the pain. Is this acceptable?
Senna nodded. The wind rose to dangerous speeds, and from the mountains a tornado rushed towards the field Senna stood in. In moments, it overtook her, and carried her away. The red ribbon in her hair untied itself, and flew into the clouds, where on the other side it would tie itself around Ceon's arm, as if had its own intentions. As if to replace it, a red sash with a large bow appeared around Senna's waist.
Claire found herself inside the house she had shared with Ceon, Senna, and Senna's grandfather. The walls, the furniture, everything was burning as if covered with the fires of hell, yet she stood in the middle, untouched by the flames, unaffected by the smoke.
Her heart was filled with rage, and with hate. The only thing she wanted was the power to avenge the death of her parents, her brother, and everyone she loved. Through the flames she could see images of Ceon and Senna. Ceon was covered in blood, and Senna looked as though the flames that did not touch Claire were touching her. After but a moment, they were gone, and Claire was alone again.
She hated it all. She wanted nothing more than to get her hands around the bastard's neck that had destroyed her life, not once, but twice. As if in response to her desires, she felt a power rise within her. The flames in the room began to move differently, at first simply shifting as if a wind was blowing them in her direction, but soon they were flying towards her, merging together in a stream, and pouring into her chest, into her heart.
Finally the fires in the house had completely disappeared inside of her, and the house was gone. Claire was now standing in the middle of pure darkness, nothing to be seen in any direction. Her eyes slowly opened, and her lips turned into a twisted grin that only ever appeared on someone truly pissed off about to get what they want. As she stared into the darkness a fire burned in her eyes, matching the fire that burned in her heart, and a red earring appeared in her ears.
About 800 years later the first Memory Rosary appeared in Karakura town on accident by a group of Exiles wishing to destroy Soul Society. After their failed attempt, they didn't know that they unlocked the key to 3 great Shinigami that would shape the world in a good and sad way...
From that day forward began the new lives of Ceon Clixx, Claire Clixx, and Senna Kimura...Abilities/ZanpaktouZanpakutô Spirit:
The Blood Queen is one that desires vengeance and despair. She loves Claire and her desires to cause chaos. The world is an endless pool of blood as the Queen bathes in it and awaits her next sacrifice. The sky is always dark and all you can hear is the screams and cries of those sacrificed to the pool of infinite anguish.Sealed Zanpakutô :
Blood Queen is actually a knife. It looks like this:
The knife is always concealed within her dress in the torso region. She hides the blade at all times, and only pulls it out when ready to fight.Shikai Description:
When Claire calls the power of her Shikai, she gains 10 golden rings, one for each finger, and a golden choker around her neck. They glow slightly and each have an inscription written in each one. Each ring is an element and type. They change according to Claire's wishes and adjust to her desires.Shikai Abilities:
The first ability of her Shikai is power sense. The can read and know all about every single Spiritual Powered being within 1 KM of her location. She can read not only locations, but the types of powers each individual holds, which gives way to her second and most feared ability...
Claire has 100% control over all forms of Reitsu/Reishi whether it be controlled or raw. Claire can adjust it, movie it, do whatever she wishes with it. She can literally control any being within her range of 1 mile and do as she wishes with them. She can siphon their power, remove it, or even worse, she can change it's type and make the individual suffer a death due to type change. It's like those with A type blood getting B type. The antibodies will battle till your entire body shuts down. This is a power to be feared amongst all as no matter the power, Claire can control you and anything you do, giving her the nickname the "Puppeteer". She can control endless amounts of subjects and targets. The golden choker around her neck is a reset button in a way. If Claire activates the choker, then her personal power goes through a reset, allowing her to go back to default.
Blank Control: Claire controls blanks and their every move/power/use. She can summon possibly an infinite amount of blanks to obey her wishes.
Dimension Control: Claire holds the ability to open and close the Valley of Screams when she wishes and move in and out from where ever she wants.Release:
Let us Cause Chaos and Despair, BLOOD QUEEN!Skill Level: Kidou:
BeginnerSkill Level: Swordsmanship:
MasterSkill Level: Shunpo:
AdvancedSkill Level: Hand-to-Hand:
When released, the rings change to that of a Halo over Claire's head and she holds a Pitch fork. Her powers change from that of total control to that of the Maker. She can create, remove, and adjust any kind of Spiritual Power she sees, thus creating explosions whenever she wishes, and removing any kinda of blasts with just a thought.Bankai Abilities:
She becomes a God.
Whim of the Maker: This ability allows her to remove any kind of Spiritual Existence she sees by contact. Her Pitch Fork will make contact with the matter and once it has, it will be absorbed into the pitch fork and removed from existence.
Creation of the Maker: When this happens, Claire's halo will glow and will create blasts of whatever magnitude she wishes and to any direction she wishes. The blast will be of any time she seems to deem necessary as well.
Power of Lords: Claire has the power of all forms of energy including Kinetic, Potential, Standard, Thermo, ALL! She can remove, add, adjust, and change nearly anything!
Adjustment of the Kami: Whenever Claire sees a being or power in her range of 100 meters, she will change it's type to whatever she feels. This is something to be warned of, as if she sees a power level of fire approach, she can make it water once in range.
Finally her rings are still on her hands, so she still has the Shikai abilities when in Bankai stage...
Finally, Claire has the same ability as her brother, the power of the Memory Rosary Release, where she will release her malfunctioned existence and become as powerful as a god. The way to gain this power is currently unknown to Claire, but it will be of the same magnitude as Ceon. She will gain copies of herself due to the number of bonds she holds gold in her heart, and her speed/power/everything will be off record scale. After the Memory Release is completed, Claire will perish till her next rebirth.
She also controls the power of the MAGNUM OF EXISTENCE:
When Claire activates this ability, she will sacrifice Ceon and Senna thus becoming the host of Memories. She will then eradicate this very host (Herself), and will cause a flux between dimensions. When activated, she cannot be stopped and thus, when complete, all existence will be eradicated.
Like her brother she holds one major weakness, her heart. If her heart is struck, she will be come weaker than all and lose all will to fight. This is harder to hit on Claire however as she holds hatred to all, even her own family. To hit this nerve on Claire is almost impossible, till finally the Story of the Rosaries is complete.CURRENT///RESURRECTION\\\
With Kin revived and back in the real world, Claire was saved from falling into an eternal limbo from her own insanity, but she isn't completey saved. Her mind is slightly damaged from the many years of tourment and suffering. She is scared and now that Kin is back, she is able to still perform as Kin's shadow and accomplish her goals, but something is sitting behind her mind. The image of two beings, one with white hair and purple hair stand there waiting for Claire smiling. This image gets cleared all the time, but it's following Claire. Aside from that, Claire is currently tryin to get back in with Ashlei, her daughter. Claire for some reason now has this feeling that she needs to care for her and be there...
