THE INVISIBLE CRACKS
Artist: Tokyo Ghoul - Song: Glassy Sky
He'd come out of his induced coma after they fixed fractures to his orbital bone and nose. They'd been disfigured by force of impact from those two strikes. She'd done nothing to him, and he'd lost. He was so weak and beneath her that he couldn't even put up a fight. His eyes, as they opened one, saw nothing but white bandages covering it. Koyo had a damaged right eye, but recovery was going nicely. Enough that he was able to go around now. This was the Squad he was joining as a member officially.
He walked away from the hospital portion leaving behind the noise from the constant activity. People coming in and out from different injuries or even colds. He worked his way to the section that practiced combat. His fingers looked fine after his mother and his talk. She'd made it clear that escape wasn't an option. He had to improve his skills with Kido. But he didn't know what to do; he'd gotten top marks in the academy. His Kido skills had earned him high praise from his instructors. But it wasn't enough; it wasn't enough.
Why wasn't it enough, all the work and suffering he'd put in? Bandages around his arms from the backfire of Sokatsui. He could perform double incantations despite his ranking. Koyo didn't know what he could do.
"Ye lord! Mask of flesh and bone, flutter of wings, ye who bears the name of Man! Disintegrate, you black dog of Rondanini!! Look upon yourself with horror and then claw out your own throat! Bakudo 9 Geki! Truth and temperance, upon this sinless wall of dreams, unleash but slightly the wrath of your claws, Hadō 31 Sokatsui."
A crimson glow came from his hand, first engulfing the target. Before the emission of blue flames sparked and emerged from his hand hitting the target. He breathed heavily; why hadn't he done that? Could he not have called this attack down on her at that point? His hand lowered, feeling his burns ache beneath the bandages.
Koyo rested his mint-colored eye, and the other ached beneath that bandage. He wouldn't give up yet; he'd find a way to grow and get stronger. He wanted to improve desperately; that feeling of helplessness scared him. It reminded him of his time with his mother and training.
