Batsu didnt reacted at Samjaz sudden appeareance, he was wating for back-up so he didnt asked any question he made another sign to ask them to follow him in silence, as they walked towards the underbelly of the city, going down levels using gigantic elevators used to carry people and goods. They went down several levels until Batsu moved again, hoping they followed him and walked towards a run down noodle shop, he knocked the door twice, and waited, as the sound of steps moved towards the door, the sounds of locks being opened and a chain being removed were the only thing it could be heared in the closed silence of the twilight in the city, since the martial law forced the residents to stay at their homes past the sunset.
The door opened with a small noise and a girl, that seemed to be not older than 15 watched them closely from the the small opening she made, Batsu said, as he lowered his hood, I've got your letter Yumi, I came to help, can we enter now?, it's freezing out here, he said as he opened the door and asked Sabine and Samjaz to follow him. Shiro, thanks for coming, said the girl as she hugged Batsu, she started crying in the swordsman chest and his tried to calm her, Dont worry, I will solve this, just calm down. Yumi sobbed a little and got a napkin from Batsu and used it to clean her face. She guided the group to a table and a sat down, Sorry if I didnt introduced myself, I'm Yumi Saemon, daughter of the owner of this shop, she paused and watched Batsu, Who are your friends Shiro?
Batsu sat down and listened to her question, I go by Batsu this days Yumi-chan,this are my comrades, she is Sabine and he is Samjaz, we met casually in town and if possible I will require their assistance to save your father from prision, he said as he shifted his attention from Yumi to his comrades. Yumi waited for their answer but suddenly she was suprised by the fact that somebody was missing, Shi...I mean Batsu-chan! were is Ryuu-chan? Did you lost him? Did you gave it away!?, she kept asking questions about the whereabouts of the Dragon Lord Hatchling but Batsu put his hand in her mouth, since she was making too much noise and said, It's a long story, when we get your father I will tell you both, but know we must focus on what is more important. He released the hand and Yumi watched them with attention
Batsu started speaking to his comrades with a serious look on his face, Yumi's father, is a man that I owe too much, not so long ago I was lost, my memory, my personality even my honor, I fought against a powerful enemy, one much more powerful that I could face, too protect innocent people, his face reflected his grief, the sorrow he hid from the world since the day he become whole again, but something inside me, something I sealed before got outside, and even with it's wicked powers I wasnt match for my enemy. He once again stopped and breathed heavily, as he touched the white streams of hair in his head, I was splitted in two, my physical self took the form of Shiro, an innocent but powerful teenager, and my inner self, helped by a outer power, took the form of Ryuugin the Silver Dragon Lord, created by my own mind and soul, and the vestiges of one of the entities I sealed inside me.
I lived like that, and trained that way until Ryuugin sacrificed himself to restore me, and my mind, when I was splitted, Yumi's father took me in, gave me a job and protected me, so this is a debt as must pay. He stopped once again and looked both of his comrades, Would you help me to overthrown this place and rescue Yumi's father?
