"Because, silly.... I love you hahaha......"
"No Shiroe! DAMN IT! Don't close your eyes!!"
"Sorry Jessica....but....I'm feeling a bit sleepy....."
"SHIROE! SHIROE!.....WAKE UP! NO DON'T LEAVE ME....DON'T DIE!"
"You're awake young master......how was your rest?" inquired the young man as he knelt down too look at Shiroe in the eyes. Shiroe backed away he clenched his fist ready to fight. The young man sighed and took his cane and gave Shiroe a light tap on his head.
"OW! What was that for?" glared Shiroe as he held his head. The young man chuckled. He pointed to the forest and whispered. "Do you hear it? Her Voice? The princess, she's looking for you....waiting for you.....shouldn't you go save her!" The young man grinned.
"Princess?! Is she pretty? Why whats wrong?" inquired Shiore as he peeked into the forest and listened carefully. he faintly hear the soft sobbing of a girl. So familiar....so warm...yet so sad.....Shinroe reached out.
"...Well?...what are you waiting for?....She's waiting for you hero..." smiled the young man as he ruffled Shiroes hair. Shiroe nodded, for some reason he felt that he had to go to the mysterious girl calling out. Shiore felt that he had to tell her that everything was alright.....he had to tell her that he was still here.
"T-thank you mister...but what's you're name?"asked Shiroe as he turned to the young man. The young man smiled and took the pocket watch and handed it to Shiroe. He put his hand on Shiroe's shoulder and smiled brightly.
"My names Akira Sanato......my teacher..... told me to come here and guild you to her......you see this? Follow where it leads.....and you'll find a way to get back to her." replied the young man as he gently pushed Shiroe towards the path way leading deeper into the forest. The young man walked the opposite direction and turned to Shiroe and waved to him goodbye.
"Thank you mister!" Smiled Shiroe as he dashed into the forest heading towards the sound of the girl sobbing. Akira watched Shiroe run deep into the forest. He touched his face and his clothes morphed into black armor, a skull like helm with two horns slick back appeared on Akira's face. "And so it begins...." murmured Akira as he vanished into the shadows....
