He continued to crawl on the cold floor in pain, his mouth tinged with blood. It felt like every bone in his body was broken, his breathing labored. His eyes widened as he saw three silhouettes before him. He turned to look at the source and managed to lie on his back slowly.
What he saw made his blood run cold.
“Please…” he whispered. “Leave me alone…”
Their faces split into sneers until they broke into spine-tingling laughter, it echoed all throughout the room they were in.
“Leave you alone?” said a voice. “Did you ever felt remorse when you killed us? No, you didn’t. We’re here to return the favor. We will make you suffer… and you will know our pain!”
In an instant, everything went dark. He reached up to his face and he cried out in fear when he realized that his eyes are missing. He felt his warm blood flowing freely from the sockets.
“Hurts, doesn’t it?” said a girl’s voice laced with venom. “Frighteningly dark, driving you insane?”
“Please, stop! Forgive me!” he cried out.
A long deafening silence settled in the room. He swallowed thickly and began to crawl away again as fast as his broken body could… and then he gasped as he felt something cold stabbed his back, piercing him all the way to his heart. His strength leaving him, he laid his head on the cold floor, slowly, painfully.
"Do you now feel the pain that we went through when you took our lives from us...?" said another voice—a man. He knew the spectre was looking for a at him with its dead eyes, he could feel its warm breath on his face.
He could feel the end drawing near… and as he breathes his last, his mind wanders, taking him back to the past before his decapitated head rolled to the pool of his own blood...
Nabeshin opened the curtain of his bedroom window. The weather is beautiful today. The heat of the season can be seen and feel all around, which seems to indicate a good start. A thin smile tore through his lips as he gazed outward.The memory of the first day he met the woman he once loved slipped through his mind. The woman who changed everything, the reason why he is in such a state now…SIX YEARS AGO…"Nabeshin, aren't you hot?" asked his best friend Toji behind him. It was morning and they were walking along the footbridge in the middle of already searing heat. Summer is upon them and the heatwave was so unforgivable even the air was oppressive and prickly to the skin.Below them were vehicles that were starting to pile up, as the traffic inched slowly. This was often a problem in their city so the heat around them was increasing due to the sm
Nabeshin hurried out of his room but accidentally caught his sight of the old bag on the side of the bed. As time goes on he becomes more and more unable to resist looking back, there seems to be an unseen force taking him back into the past that he would have wished to fade, but how is he going to do that if everything about it has triggered him every day.He felt strange around ... it suddenly closed the door when he heard a familiar voice. Suddenly his forehead was sweating, he felt like he was choking. Her eyes widened as she slowly turned to her side."Sir, the car is waiting below," the voice said again. She was just his secretary, still frowning as he looked at her.He turned his eyes in another direction and made the facial expression serious. He breathed a sigh of relief when he realized that the voice he had been he
He got up QUICKLY from lying on the bed but suddenly dropped again his body when he felt the delicate pain from his forehead. He gently stroked it and felt a bandage on his head. He closes his eyes again, emphatically."Are you okay Sir Nabeshin?" He heard his secretary's question at the foot of his bed. He could feel her gaze. She said he had suddenly fainted earlier."Y-yes," he replied shortly.From his closeness, Von's face reappeared in his pupil. Even the familiar emotion he felt again."You can leave now, Shan ..." he said.He heard the woman's sigh before the mattress sagged near him, an indication that it sat next to him."But why, Nine? If you have a problem you
No matter how cleverly you erase records and tracks, you can't erase a person's memory."Are you really feeling OK, Nabeshin?" Shan asked the young man worriedly. "Maybe you're still dizzy."She gently patted his forehead as the young man adjusted his polo shirt. Nabeshin quickly made a pat on Shan's palm, the cold look he gave him. Stunned but did not show up, she quickly avoided the young man so that he would not notice his confusion and self -pity. As much as possible, she avoids showing resentment at what it shows him.As much as possible she will understand it until it is all over.Shan winced when she heard Nabeshin calling to him."Is everyone ready for where we're going, Five?" his question.Although she feels happy when he calls her by her code name, she still can't get rid of that sadness because she knows the young man is just doing that because he has a favor to demand."Y-yes Nine, it's fixed. Y-your presence is
Nabeshin and Shan's car is still driving through the crowded area of Tokyo. The sunshine of those times was beautiful, it was very similar to the times when Shan returned to Japan ten years ago."Do you still remember that first day we met, Nine?" Later Shan asked next door, causing her to look up at him. Shan's attention remained focused outside the car. He could clearly see from afar the function of the red train...."NABESHIN, maybe it's not too much that Lisa is here first," Toji said suddenly.Nabeshin immediately looked at the him, they were playing chess of those moments. There was a streak of smile on his lips. His lips twitched, he wanted to say something to Toji but he just remained silent."You understand Von's situation, don't you, Nine?" Twelve still continues."But Toji, we can't trust her. All I want is for her to recover from her fever!" irri
NABESHIN is sitting in front of a large mirror while the makeup artist of their company fixes it. He couldn't understand why he had to go through this. He looked good but he just let it go, because Shan said he needed it so that he wouldn't look like a corpse on the camera and television register. He even ran his face in the mirror again and then he finally dismissed the person who fixed him. Slowly he combed his hair with his fingers until his attention was distracted by the scar on his forehead, he slowly traced his finger there. The past ran through his upper eye, that scar served as his memory or remembrance of the event that caused them to repeat their project ZNT."Are you ready, Nine?" Shan asked him. Nabeshin silently looked at the speaker from the mirror, though nervous he nodded.Nabeshin's face and posture could not be traced. But whatever he was hiding he knew he and Shan were knew it.They were already walking backs
NABESHIN could see so many people around, he could hear the noise and screams as he came out of the back stage. He immediately waved so it got even more chaotic. The people around barely cheered evenmore. Nabeshin could clearly see the posters they were holding. Some even wore clothes with prints on the faces of his characters Nine, Twelve and Lisa. He also saw a few pictures of Five.The poster of his Anime series ZNT is widespread throughout the country. It's only the first week that the anime series has aired but the audience has received such a warm support. His eyes twinkled when he saw many people enjoying his work. He felt Shan's hand gently caress his arm."I told you they will love it, Nabeshin." Smiling she said to him."Yes." Full of pleasure he agreed.The program started while he was just on the edge of the stage and continued to sign ZNT posters and merchandise carried by fans. He was a
"ARE you alright Nabeshin?" Shan asked as she touched the young man's shoulder causing him to shrink suddenly.Shan could clearly see the masculinity and tears forming in both of Nabeshin's eyes as he stared at her, je didn't seem to be in himself those moments."Nine ?!" Shan is worried again he called the young man's code name. He immediately touched and caressed Nabeshin's cheek with her palm. Suddenly he blinked, it seemed that's the only place he met her. Nabeshin gently grabbed her hand with a quick pull then hugged her tightly."Five ... Five ..." Nabeshin repeated to her as she sank into her shoulder, Shan felt the heavy emotion engulfing him.Even though he was crying, as time went on it became more difficult. If possible she did not want to be weak for him. She had to be steadfast in the face of it."That's enough, Nabeshin, I-I'm just here. I'll be with you
