The sun has just risen above the horizon, its golden rays illuminating the once dim travel trail. Nature’s creatures slowly began to awaken from their brief night`s slumber, however, there was already one being who has been aroused long before the sun has risen. Akahana the lone traveller has been awake and travelling through the unknown lands during the night’s dark hours in attempt to remain out of her pursuers sights. Now that the sun has provided her with a stronger source of light rather than the full moon that has now set, Hana was able to fully perceive her own surroundings. The wanderer found herself in an eerie city; looking more like the remnant of what it used to be. The Red Demon, who has been travelling for the past eight years of her life, has never come across such a bizarre landscape. Huh, well this is a peculiar place; I wonder if word about my reputation has reached this odd city.
The Akage continued to walk through this city, and which was now brightly lit by the morning’s sun. Akahana made sure her beige cloak covered her vivid red hair, she didn’t want to draw unwanted attention to herself. A small kiosk on the side of the road caught the curious traveller. Standing in the small booth was an elderly man, who seemed to be selling a collection of antiques. The twenty-one year old woman peered into the kiosk with a moment of slight curiosity. Just when her emerald eyes were about to avert away and resume her travels, an old brown book catches her attention. The book was titled: History of the World’s Soothsayers, which was surprising to find in today’s day and age. Hana picked up the book and flipped through its pages, however, the old man suddenly interrupted her, “Ma’am, you’ll have to purchase the book in order for you to read it.” Hana gave the old man a brief glance, and she rummaged through her pouch, pretending to take out some money; which she knew she did not have. At the right moment, the sly woman placed the book under her arm and dashed away, leaving behind a fuming old man who has just been robbed.
That old fart didn’t see that one coming, thought the cunning redhead as she ran through the city. The woman wasn’t planning on running off with the book, she just wanted time to read it then return it back to its owner…….possibly. She needed to make sure the book did not contain any information regarding her own clan’s history of soothsaying, and if it did, she'll have no choice but to dispose of it.
