Maxim Celestial. A person who, for some reason,cannot die.
No matter what he does, It always miraculously fails.
Every attempt on his life--no matter who or what they do, they always fail.
They fail, even if he tries it himself.
He was done with this life.
At first he was so happy to have such power, Maxim can finally protect his love once, but he was wrong, so wrong...
Ever since his power was discovered, there has been nothing but tragedy came into his life. He shouldn't have underestimated the things, selfishness and desperation can do.
He shouldn't have this ability at the first place!. Now almost all the people he loved are gone and he is done.
Maxim is mad, so mad at the world, so mad at how people can be so cruel but he's also frustrated but he's mad at himself the most.
He can shield them from knives,arrows, guns or whatever physical things that can cause harm to them, but Maxim didn't think that no matter how hard he tries, he can't protect all of them from all of the things. He knows that he couldn't shield them from mental hazards and especially from aging, a natural thing that occurs to all humans.
He saw his loved ones die in front of him but can't do anything. He might have done something to change it.
Maxim had decided that this talent,ability or whatever people prefer to call it was useless.
And now he's here, on the edge of a cliff and this time he came prepared.
Maxim was absolutely sure that this would be worth the preparation. 'If I don't die from this fall, I'll just stay there and hope to rot to death'
Maxim stared at the stars one last time, 'I'll end it all now, I'll see you again..." Maxim don't know how many times did he did this but he believed that this place is where he'll meet his end.
He's sure of it. Maxim feels a strong feeling that this place was like no other, He didn't felt this certain assurance when he tried jumping on his school building nor when he'd try to drown in the sea.
The feeling was different. It almost felt as if the places' purpose was to witness him do his plans.
'Have I finally gone mad?, What the hell am I thinking?!'Maxim laughed at himself and stared at the bottom of the cliff.
"This is it.."Maxim smiled,He'll finally achieve his dream.
The dream of finally passing away and seeing them again..
He will finally get what he wants, and yet theres a bugging feeling in his heart.
It's like some part of him wanted to stop.'That can't be right?! This is what i want!'
Thoughts about his mother's words against suicide, and feeling of regret was suddenly came into his mind.
"Is what I'm doing wrong?.." Maxim stepped back a little.
'No, I've been preparing for this, I just know that all will end here!' He argued to himself.
I just need to--
Just one ste--
"Please, anyone help me!!"
Maxim looks at the direction where the voice is coming from. 'Damn it'
Setting aside his plan of ending it all, He decided to help this person to atleast get out of the forest. He can continue doing what he is doing anytime, but this person is not guaranteed to get out of this forest alive. He chose this forest for a reason.
Not long ago, he found the source of the voice.
A quite eye-catching guy, maybe in his twenties, sitting down near a tree, wearing a white t-shirt and a...pajama?,a white plastic bag beside him. 'What a weird fashion, this guy have…'
"F*ck! What the actual f*ck!" The man exclaimed as soon as their eyes met.
Maxim looked at him with both surprise and confusion.
"I am here to...help" Maxim approached the guy that is still staring at him. Maxim ignored the shocked expression on the guy and helped him stand up.
"I can't believe that I'm meeting a...special person" the unknown guy said lowering his voice on at the last two words, Maxim didn't get what he said.
"Where is this?..." The guy asked after he recovered from whatever shock he's on.
"Some random forest, away from the city…" Maxim answered.
"Why are you---Don't tell me that today is the day you jum--?!..." The guy asked and immediately put his hand to his mouth. 'Weird'
"You should be in school right now! What did you do?" The weird guy said, shaking his head,looking disappointed as if he have known what Maxim did the whole day.
Maxim put a distance between the two of them. 'Suspicious!'
"Who are you?! What do you know?!" He asked,glaring at the guy.
"...Everything." The guy said as he sighed and picked up his white plastic bag.
"What do you mean by everything?..."
Another sigh was heard from the man.
"Why don't we introduce ourselves properly? Hi, I'm Kion and I can see the future!"
Maxim gave him a suspicious look.
"Well maybe not haha, just think that I also have an ability, like you. Do you want to introduce yourself Mr.Unkillable?..."
Maxim didn't answer.
"Okay, I'll just call you Max? Oh how about Maxi?"
"Maxim. Call me Maxim."
Maxim will be lying if he says that he's not interested in this man.
He's met various people throughout his entire life,be it a hacker, mafia, celebrities, you name it!...but he never met someone who has an ability too. Someone who knows his secret, Someone who knows what he can do.Someone who knows...everything? but Maxim decided not to let his guard down...yet. This person could be sent by those people from years ago...
"So...Mr.Kion why did you get lost if you know everything."Maxim asked--interrogated.
Kion's face went red, he was caught off guard by the question.
"My power is only applicable to...humans,how am I supposed to tell where I should go?!"
"That means you don't know everything..." Maxim can't help but joke.
Now it's Kion who's glaring at him. "I don't even know that this place exists!"
"Then why are you here?..." Maxim pressed again.
Kion glanced at him, they made eye contact.
"I don't know...I was just..."Kion said as he looked away and checked the contents of the bag he was holding.
Maxim was sure that Kion does not have any ill intentions but he couldn't help but back away a little from him. He just have this feeling that the guy in front of him is hiding something.
"Why are you looking at me like that!, I know that look!" Kion panicked as soon as he saw Maxim's expression.
"Look at you like what?..." Maxim asked.'Did he know that I'm suspicious?'
"Am I really that suspicious to you?, look at me! I'm not even carrying anything!" Kion said, gesturing to himself.
Maxim looked at the white plastic bag Kion was holding, and gave him a look.
"Oh well, I AM carrying something..." Kion awkwardly laughed,
"This bag...I don't know why you're so suspicious?!You can't die! It's just a f*cken instant noodles!"
Maxim doesn't know what to say, this Kion guy is weird. One moment he's like a lost puppy crying for help, the next moment he's like a thug.
"What?! Do you think I'll kill you with chopsticks?!" Kion asked exasperated.
"Who brings instant noodles into the woods at a time like this?and that outfit?.."Maxim asked, gesturing to the guy in front of him.
"Well...Who spends months checking a place where they're going to end their life." Kion answered sarcastically.
There was silence...
"See?! We are not normal haha..." Kion said while putting his arms to Maxim's shoulders, trying to lighten the mood.
Maxim surprisingly didn't feel uncomfortable so he didn't do anything to push the guy off.
"Now lead me out of here Maxim, The mosquitoes are killing me!"
Shaking his head, Maxim didn't say anything and started walking in the direction where the road could be found.
"Where do you live?I'll send you home..."Maxim asked.
They are currently in Maxim's car. Maxim is driving while Kion is seated beside him, looking in the window, being amazed about anything he sees.
"I'm not from here..." Kion answered immediately. Maxim gave him yet another glance,but this glance is not the suspicious one. Maxim knows what a lonely person sounds like.
"Look at the road, Mister!" Kion scolded as he forcefully made Maxim's head look on the road again.
A few seconds later, Kion put his hands on Maxim's neck, checking if he had hurt him or accidentally snapped his neck or something..
Maxim felt a shiver down his spine. 'Now he's like a puppy again.' He noted.
"I know you don't fully trust me but I'm really not from here, I don't even know why I woke up in there..."Kion started explaining after a moment of silence between them.
Maxim almost gave him a glance when Kion put his hand on his shoulder, as if warning him to not look at him,so He look ahead and focused on the road again.
"So where are you going to sleep tonight?" Maxim curiously asked.
Kion let out a short laugh.
Maxim felt another shiver down his spine 'I don't like whatever is going to happen' Maxim thought.
"I'm going home with you!"
