Roy starts to feel very tired. He feels his energy slowly being sucked out of him.
Roy falls to the ground on his back, 'What...What's happening to me...' Roy becomes unconscious.
[Atsushi and Takagi POV]
"Where did he go?" Takagi says with a worried look
"That Idiot, how did he get lost?" Atsushi says.
"Should we go back to look for him?" Takagi asks.
Atsushi starts walking back without answering Takagi. Atsushi seems very worried.
Takagi starts following Atsushi.
After losing his consciousness Roy wakes up in his subconscious. Roy usually comes here while meditating. It's a technique that helps a person to get stronger. People also call it the 'Subconscious Training Space'.
After waking up it takes him some time to get himself together. Then he remembers that he lost consciousness after trying to pull out that sword. When he tries to get out of the training space something unnatural happens. For some reason, he can't get out of there, and then all of a sudden a crack appears in his training space. His training space fills up with black smoke, the ground is covered with black liquid. It is as if he entered a new dimension!
After a few seconds, the smoke starts to get clear up. When he looks directly in front of him, he sees something, It is pitch black, hardly anything can be seen.
"Wh-what is that?!" Roy says to himself while looking at that 'thing' with sharp eyes. He starts walking toward the 'thing' but out of nowhere, he feels a shock in his mind. He grabs his head with both of his hands, "What's happing now? Ughh..." He starts to scream.
A few minutes later,
"What just happened? I think I managed to get out from the 'Subconscious Training Space' but why can't I move my body? Also, why can't I open my eyes?!"
[Atsushi and Takagi POV]
"Gramps, look here. There is another way!" Takagi says while pointing his finger at something.
Atsushi stands in front of the path that they came out of and says, "Takagi come here, it's an illusion." Atsushi points his finger to the ground, "Can you see the carved line? If you stand on this side, you can see this path and if you stand on that side, you can see that path. It is called the 'Transparent Illusion'."
Takagi puts his hand on his jaw and says, "Now I understand, he went on that side so he lost us."
"Now, let's go. We shouldn't waste our time here." Atsushi says.
They start going on the other path. After walking for a few minutes they come across a big door.
"FUCK! This is the boss room!" Atsushi with a warry face
"For real? Did he go in?!" Takagi says
Atsushi walks closer to the door, he pushes it and opens the door effortlessly. Atsushi sees something that scares him.
"ROY!" Atsushi sees Roy is laying on the ground as if he is dead.
Takagi and Atsushi run toward Roy
"Roy...Roy...Roy, Wake up, Roy!" Both are trying to wake him up but Roy is not replying.
"Wait, the ground is shaking! Is someone opening the door?" Roy thinks inwardly.
"Yes!, this is the voice of gramps and Takagi but I can't move. Ughhhhh, move body just a little" Roy is trying to move his body.
"DAMN IT! This isn't working. But at least I am breathing" Roy thinks to himself.
[Atsushi and Takagi POV]
Takagi holds Roy's hand and checks his pulse.
"Gramps, he is alive!" Takagi says with a relieved look.
"Takagi pick him up." Atsushi says.
"Wait what, why me?" Takagi says with an annoyed face.
"I told you, that's why." Atsushi starts walking toward the door.
Takagi moves his hand to pick Roy up. While trying to pick him up he sees two swords.
'Huh? Two swords? When did he start using two swords?' Takagi thinks while picking up both of his swords. Then he picks up Roy.
'Wha-is someone giving me a princess carry?' Roy thinks
They reach their house.
"Hey, you guys are ba-" Saika stops talking after seeing Roy.
"What happened to him?" Saika runs toward Takagi who is carrying Roy.
"He is alive, you don't have to cry." Takagi says.
"I-I am not crying." Saika replies.
"Take him to his room and treat him." Atsushi says to Saika.
Saika nods in agreement and goes to his room with Roy.
After a while, Saika comes back from Roy's room.
"How is he Saika?" Takagi asks.
Takagi is waiting downstairs but Atsushi isn't.
"He is fine." Saika replies.
Roy is laying on the bed.
A guy can be seen sitting on the chair next to his bed. He has short blond hair, black sharp eyes, he is wearing a black t-shirt, gray jeans and also he is wearing a black cloak.
"Is he alright Otsuka?" Atsushi asks.
"Yes Sir, he is alright. For now, he is just unconscious. For some unknown reason, he has a seal on him. The seal was blocking him from regaining his consciousness. So I planted a undo spell to break the seal. For now, pour this Aloe-Vero extract on the magic circle, it will automatically go into his body. The seal will break after a few hours." Otsuka says to Atsushi who is standing next to him.
"Oh, thank you very much." Atsushi says politely.
Otsuka stands up and turns toward Atsushi and bows a little," Sir, please don't say that. It's my honor to help someone like you."
A few hours later,
A boy comes down from upstairs. He goes to the kitchen and sits on a chair. He is wearing a blue t-shirt, gray shorts that reach his knees. It was Roy.
Right after his seal breaks, he gets very hungry. There is a plate of rice and meat. He starts eating like a beast as if he hasn't had a meal in 3-4 days.
"Hey, you woke up!" Takagi says with a smile but the smile doesn't last long as he sees Roy eating his food.
Roy suddenly feels the killing intent that is being directed at him. He looks at Takagi and sees a creepy smile.
"Why. Are. You. Eating. My. Food?" Takagi says while gazing angrily at Roy
Roy gulps and says, "Sorry?"
Takagi just stares at Roy.
Roy continues to eat and says, "I mm hunnry, so jst lt mw et"
"SHUT UP! I can't understand you." Takagi says with an angry look.
Roy finishes eating.
"Where is Saika? She was in your room, right?" Takagi asks
"Yeah, she is in my room. She was sleeping beside me when i woke up, so i just put the blanket on her and came downstairs."
Both of them are quiet.
Takagi breaks the silence,
"I saw another sword beside your sword. When did you start using two swords?" Takagi asks with a curious look.
"Oh, I found it in the dungeon." Roy replies.
"And more importantly, what happened back there?" Takagi asks with a confusing face.
Roy is about to say something when all of a sudden Atsushi enters the kitchen. By the expression on his face, he looked happy and shocked at the same time.
He goes closer to Roy and hugs him.
"Gramps don't worry, I am completely fine"
Atsushi sits next to Tagaki and asks the same question, "How did this happen?"
"I don't know, I was thinking something and when I looked around you guys were not there. Then I started walking on my own and came across a big door. I went inside it but after that...I can't remember what happened." Roy looks down after saying that.
"Well, forget about it. But be careful from now." Atsushi says.
Takagi stands up and goes outside.
Roy also stands up and follows Takagi.
Takagi is sitting on the balcony wall.
Roy pokes him from behind and says with a smirk, "Two more days till 'Paradise of Madagascar'."
Takagi turns back and gives an evil smile at Roy.
