[A man walking down the street of a large city. He comes to a stop.]
Man : Hmm?!
[He takes a gaze upon the sky.]
8 Years Later
[A boy is running through the forest. Constantly move back branches, bushes, and leaves. As the boy is running he is consistently picking up speed. He runs as quick as he can. Constantly maneuvering around the environment but because of how fast he is moving his eyes couldn't keep of the surroundings. The boy trips and hits the floor of the forest. As he is laying on the ground he looks back because he is afraid what is chasing him is catching up. The boy heavily breathing kicks his feet and takes off running again. He begins to see a light as he moves forward. He runs towards it moving the bushes out of the way he. He stops moving and gazes upon a town. The boy suddenly has a smile that covers the entire bottom of his face.]
Jon Cornelius : I JON CORNELIUS SON OF THE GREAT GAVIN CORNELIUS AM A Professional ADVENTURER!! I HAVE TRAVELED ACROSS ALL OVER THE WORLD!! ANYWHERE FROM THE MUDDY SWAMP JUNGLE OF DAENERYS TO THE EXTREME FREEZING COLD TUNDRA OF HALNARR!!
[The boy looks with astonishment at Cornelius. This becomes a break through moment for the boy.]
Boy : I want to become a professional adventurer!
[All of the sudden an eerie and dark tone grows. You look at the boys face it is covered with blood along with the rest of his clothes from head to toe. A blank expression covers the boy’s face looks almost soulless. Carrying a backpack covered and dripping with blood. Holding the backpack in one hand lifting it only a few centimeters off the ground.]
11 YEARS LATER
[The sun rise and the rays come through the cracks in the blinds of the window. Icarus boldly shoots his eyes open.]
Icarus : TODAYS THE DAY!
[Icarus throws his legs back towards his head and does a kick up to spring himself into action. He scratches his head and looks at his bed and room.]
Icarus : Huh! It’s kinda dirty… I clean it up later!
[Sho the owner of the house is downstairs cooking sunny side up eggs. And off to the side is an extremely large pig spinning on a rotisserie. He prepares the food and puts on the table.]
Sho : ICARUS GET THE HELL UP!
[Icarus walks down the stairs doing a handstand.]
Icarus : I’m up! Why are you yelling?!
[Icarus walking towards the table still doing a handstand. He gets near the table and does a front flip to jump out of the handstand. While he was falling he pulls out a chair from the table and lands in it.]
Sho : Was that necessary?
Icarus : Absolutely!
[Sho tucks his head into his hand and shakes his head. Sho sits down at the table… Then they both begin to dig into the food like lions that just captured their prey... They both finish their food, now just picking their teeth.]
Sho : Icarus! I'm going to head down to the market in town. While im gone get started on the work for today.
Icarus : What?! But today is the day I become an adventure and I suppose to set out on my journey.
[Icarus then puts one foot on top of the table and points high in the air.]
Icarus : TO BECOME A LEVEL 4 ADVENTURE!
[Sho knocks Icarus on top of the head]
Sho : Take Your Damn Feet Off The Table!! I don’t care. There are still things that need to get done around here. So hurry up and get to it. And you need the last test for your Kiyo.
[Sho then begins to walk towards the door.]
Icarus : What! I’m already perfect at Kiyo! I don’t need anymore test.
Sho : Tsk! I will be back.
[Sho walks out the door and closes it behind him.]
Icarus : Huh! It’s my last day and he making me do these dumb chores.
[Icarus kicks the bucket across the room. He then begins to walk outside.
Sho walks down the path towards the town of Tarnnova. Everyone starts waving and saying hello to him. He waves back. Sho then walks up to the usual market “Angela’s” where he constantly gets his food. He opens the door and a bell rings.]
Sho : Hello Joi! How's it going?
Joi : Everything is great! How are you doing!
Sho : I'm doing well!
Joi : That's great to hear! Wheres Icarus? He didn't come with you?
Sho : No he is to busy throwing a temper tantrum because I told him to stay back and work on something at the house.
Joi : Well when you see it from his point of view today is the big day for him. The day he has been waiting for ever since you found and took him in that day 11 years ago. He is really excited to go out but now he has to do chores.
Sho : Huh! Wow! Has it really been that long!
Joi : Yep! Now he is finally able to chase his dreams of becoming an adventurer. I know you are sad to see him go!
[Joi smiles with laughter.]
Sho : Sad! SSSAAADDD!!!! Shoot! I can't wait to get rid of him! He has been a pain in my ass for over 10 years! You just don't know how hard it is taking care of that boy.
Joi : Hahaha! Your just saying that just to sound cool!
Sho : Not really! That kid is a hand full. Im telling you Joi you really just don't know.
Joi : He reminds me a lot of your son Terry.
[Sho tilts his head down and smirkes.]
Joi : Both of them had a hot temperament and you whipped both of them into shape. Terry change so much from how he used to be as a kid. Remember all of the fights he used to get in with all of the kids around here. But then Terry grew up and stop fighting and joined the military so they he can make you proud while serving our country. They are the exact same.
Sho : mmm. Icarus was a tough one when we first met him.
Joi : He would go around telling everyone that he is going to be the most famous Level 4 adventurer and would fight anyone who didn't believe. He even fought you a couple of times over it.
[Sho dips his head down and whispers to himself.]
Sho : More than just a couple!
[He then let out a little chuckle.]
Sho : Huh. Yeah! They are kind of similar.
[Sho looks around the store. He finds everything he needs. He goes to pay for them. As he’s pulling out his wallet he spots something out of the corner of his eye. Some flowers off to the side.]
Sho : Hey Joi how much are the flowers?
Joi : T…
Sho : Actually don’t answer that. Just give me 3 roses, 2 daffodils, and 2 Azaleas.
Joi:Would that be it?
Sho:Yeah that's it.
Joi:Ok that will be 762 Rendo.
[Sho gives her the money and begins to walk out the door. He then turns around and smiles.]
Sho:Have a nice day Joi!
Joi smiles back.
[Sho closes the door behind him. He begins to take walk south of his house. After about 20 minutes of walking he is on this singular path. The town is but a small view in the distance of where he is going. On the left and right side of this path is filled with abandoned house with broken doors, windows, graffiti, and other junk around the houses. Sho arrives at the part of the path where it begins to make its way uphill. Sho takes a deep breath then exhales. Sho finally arrives to the top of the hill. On top of this mountain was waiting a gravestone with the name Terry written into it.]
Sho:It’s been 15 years… 15 years… 15 years since the last time we talked… A lot has happened since then… but how have you been… I've been good… Today is the day you left… after that day I wasn’t doing so well…
[He chuckles and smirks.]
Sho:I went down a dark path… I never thought I was going to return but… I just so happen to find something… no someone who pulled me away from that dark side… you should meet him sometime…
[Water begins to fall upon the ground. One drop. Two drops. Three drops. Fall from the face of Sho. He clenches his fist tightly.]
Sho:He is just like you… stupid… foolish… brash
[Tears began to flow heavily from the face of Sho. They begin to drown the dirt off the ground.]
Sho:However he is Intelligent… strong-willed … and he’s a fighter. Much like you when you used to get into fights and his always willing to fight for something he believes even if that means the death of him...
Sho begins to punch the ground as tears ran down his face onto the ground.
Sho:On this day I lost two sons.
[He gets off of his knee. Wipes his face dry of his tears. Looks up into the sky and gives the heavens a smile. Meanwhile Icarus is busy fixing the roof of the house. He is hammering away at a leek on the roof. Then he begins to till the grass in the garden and begins planting the seeds then watering. He moves onto making the fence around the garden then onto cleaning up the entire house including his room. Icarus hears footsteps closing near the house. He runs outside to make sure it is Sho. Which it was.]
Icarus:Alright! Sho I did everything that was needed to be done around the house I tended to the garden, I cleaned up the entire, and even fixed the leek in the roof.
Sho:Alright! After dinner we will do the last test.
[A big smiles grows upon Icarus’s face.]
[Icarus jumps into the air clicking both of his feet together. Sho walks into the house and puts down the bag of groceries. He pulls out all the pots and pans that are needed to make the food. Time passes by and Sho finish cooking.]
Sho:ICARUS! The food ready!
[Icarus outside outside the house in a kiba dachi stance punching the air. With each punch a small gust of when follows them.]
Icarus:Left! Right! Left! Right!
[Icarus shakes his head and quickly blinks his eyes taking him out of his concentration.]
Icarus:I'm coming! I'm coming!
[Icarus gets out of the stance and walks inside the house.]
Icarus:OOUU! Dinner is looking nice!
[Sho fixes up the last dinner between the two. He sets the plates and fills them with food. Then both dug in. Icarus more than Sho. But Sho just stares at Icarus as he eats. He sees Terry sitting across from himself eating. He smirks and a tear falls from his cheek onto his plate of food. Sho says Terry inside of Icarus.Icarus looks up with food hanging out of his mouth.]
Icarus:Are you crying?
[Sho wipes his face.]
Sho:No! Some of the juice from the meat you're tearing through flew over here onto my face.
[Sho and Icarus finish dinner.]
Icarus:Can we go now!
Sho:Alright! Alright! Come out side.
[Sho and Icarus walk outside. They stand off to the side of the house. A giant forest stretching for a few miles in both the east and west direction.]
Sho:Alright! Icarus I just want you to show me all of the techniques of Kiyo.
[Sho says this as he picks up two rocks.]
[Icarus shakes his head. Icarus goes into a standing kiba dachi stance with his arms tucked closely together. Sho juggles the two rocks in his left hand.]
Sho:Icarus activate Aka.
[Icarus closes eyes and concentrates.A flow of aura begin to surround Icarus. Icarus takes a deep breath and the aura explodes and becomes larger.
- Aka is bursting out and enlargement of your aura.
Sho:Ok! Icarus show me Oren.
[ Icarus explodes his aura again. He opens his eyes and grins a Sho]
- Oren is the enlargement of the Kiyo aura and forming a defensive barrier making your body more durable to damage.
Sho:Good! Very good! Now take this.
[Sho throws one of the rocks he was juggling. The rock goes flying at Icarus at a fast speed. The rock makes a collision with the right side of Icarus’s face. The rock breaks apart and looks like dust in the wind.]
Sho:Icarus fix yourself.
[Icarus looks at Sho with confusion. Icarus lifts his right hand and touches his nose. He looks at his fingers]
Icarus:Huh! BLOOD! WHAT THE HELL! YOU THREW THAT ROCK TO HARD!
Sho:WHO THE HELL YOU THINK YOU CURSING AT!
[Sho punches Icarus on top of the head.]
Sho:It's not my fault you didn’t make your Oren strong enough to tank a little rock.
Sho:Just wipe it off its not broken.
[Icarus wipes his nose.]
Sho:Alright! Since your done whining now show me Kiiro.
[Icarus takes stance again and the aura begins to flow out of him again but this time stronger. Sho tosses Icarus the other rock he had.]
- Kiiro is the enlargement of the Kiyo aura and forming an offensive barrier enhancing your physical movement.
[Icarus catches the rock with the aura still flowing throughout the outside of his body. Sho points at the forest]
Sho: Icarus take that rock and throw it at the tree and make go through.
[Icarus nods his head. He leans back his shoulder and crank back his arm. He throws the rock for toward the tree Sho pointed at. The rock goes flying towards the tree at a blazing speed. The rock is flying so fast that its breaks right through the tree. Then it breaks through the next 7 trees behind that first one.]
Sho:I said just one but ok.
[Icarus touches his muscle and smiles.]
Sho:On to the next one Iro.
[Sho grabs a skinny stick. He inspects it then tosses it to Icarus. Icarus catches the stick]
- Iro is the movement of aura into an object to make them stronger.
Sho:Icarus infuse that with Iro and hit the tree that you threw the rock at.
[Icaurs walks over to the tree. He looks down at the stick. Aura begins to flow through the stick. Icarus grips the stick and cranks back his arms. He sends his arms flying toward the tree with the stick in his hand. The stick breaks the tree but still stays intact. The tree falls over.]
Sho:Good you kept the stick intact.
Sho:Let’s see your Mura.
Sho:Now close your eyes and focus.
[Icarus closes his eyes. Frowning from concentration.]
Sho:Now i'm going to erase myself from your reality. Then I want you to feel my oncoming attacks through your Mura.
[Icarus sees an aura in the darkness representing Sho. In a flash that aura disappears. Icarus looks around in the darkness trying to feel where can come from.]
Icarus:Where will he come from.
[Sho walks around in a circle around Icarus. He quickly picks up a rock and chucks it at Icarus.]
[Icarus feels something come within the range that he can sense. He catches the rock that was flying at him and throws it quickly to the ground. He gears up for the next attack. Two rocks come flying in at Icarus.]
[Icarus quickly grabs the rock on his left and the one that's coming from behind. But as soon as he grab those three more comes flying in. Icarus quickly drops the rocks then grabs two out of the three that are coming at him. He jumps into the air doing a flip and kicks the third rock away. He sees another object approaching.]
Icarus:*Damn it! I cant dodge that rock.
[Icarus panics. The rock comes in close. Icarus braces himself for the rock. But the rock was not a rock it was Sho. Sho come in an punches Icarus in the gut.]
[Spits flies out of Icarus mouth. Icarus gets sent back a few feet. He lands on the ground. He stands]
Icarus:What The!!! You didn’t tell me you was going to punch me!
Sho:I never said I wouldn’t.
Icarus:That shit hurt!
Sho: Watch your mouth.On to the next one.
[Icarus spits onto the ground.]
[Icarus closes his eyes and focuses. Sho closes his eyes and actives his Mura. Sho sees the aura of Icarus flowing well. Then it shuts off and he cant see him anymore. Sho opens his eyes.]
Sho: Good Job…
