    To be completely honest, a part of you had expected the phone to explode the moment you pressed the button. Interactions with Kenji had proved that the youth was a bit of a daredevil when it came to testing things of his creation, as evidenced by the fact that he had put his own life on the line while testing out those strange watch devices of his, and thus, when nothing seems to happen, a part of you is both relieved and disappointed.

    At the very least you had expected uncontrolled sparks, but...

    It's only as you glance up from the phone, that you realize you're no longer within the confines of the aquarium; it had been subtle, there had been no grand noise or flash of light, no, you had simply pressed the button...

    And everything had drained from the world.

    It was a pitch black existence.

    To put it more accurately... What your senses, what those spirits were saying...

    Was that this was as close to a literal 'void' as it was possible to go without succumbing to oblivion. It's a very lonely feeling, going from the gentle warm presence of Mina and Goddess to a blank nothing, but as you look around...

    You feel it...

    Someone's eyes on your back.

    But when you instinctively turn to look...



    "...Human?"

    You find what looks like a young woman staring straight into your eyes.

    So close that she was violating most rules of personal space...

    And giving off a 'predatory' aura that sent all of your senses into overdrive, the feeling an ant gets the moment a foot appears to step on it.

    Although her, its, words...

    Make it seem more curious than anything else.

    Could you kill someone you love for the sake of everyone else?

    Will they be able to show it to me?

    That was a bit of a... letdown...

    It's only when I look up that I realize I'm in darkness.

    It wasn't even like the space was filled with shadows. I would have been fine if it had, but instead this felt cold. Cold and lonely. Coming off of the gentle feeling of Mina and Yami's presence, this was like getting slapped with a wet fish and told to sit down.

    I was reaching for a cigarette when I felt something in the void, but I didn't say a word.

    Instead.

    I slowly put my cigarette back in the pack and turned around.




    "...Human?"

    Holy shit.

    For one second I was standing in front of the Kyuubi again, running without ever getting away. I blinked the scene away, hard.

    Only one thing to do.

    "Hey, cutie. That's me, yep, a genuine human."

    I reach out a hand.

    "Nice to meet you."

    The look she gives you is one that is impossible to discern, at least at first.

    Throwing caution to the wind and extending your hand, she had raised an eyebrow at first, as if the meaning of the gesture wasn't something that was well known to her, before stepping back a bit in order to meet you halfway.

    The hand is both warm and cold, a feeling that would have been outright paradoxical if not for the fact that the temperature of her body was all around split into two halves, as if a living person had been mixed with a corpse... Sensitive to these sorts of things in your current state, you focus on it without really meaning to, and the moment you do...

    "Yes. That appears to be the case."

    She's already thrown you over her shoulder and onto the floor, twisting your arm around so she was behind your back, and putting her foot on your shoulder as if she meant to snap the arm from it's socket.

    "A foolish, jokester of a human... But a living one."

    While the action itself is violent, and the herculean pressure on your joints is quite painful-!

    It completely lacks killing intent.

    There's no real blood-lust in it... Rather, it's almost like whatever this this is is trying to make some sort of obtuse point that you really don't understand...

    "...But what do you want? Humans don't belong here. Living humans even less so."

    All with the voice of an exceptionally tired queen.

    Well, she took the handshake. That's good?

    Her hand is strange - half of it is normal, and warm, but the other half is cold to the touch. I mean, I can't say anything about that weirdness, not just because I'm weird but also because I'm ninety percent certain that she's a demon.

    I mean, really, Kenji's not-

    "Yes. That appears to be the case."

    "Fuck!"

    I'm on the ground before I know what's happening, and her foot is pressing onto my shoulder like my arm is going to pop off.

    "A foolish, jokester of a human... But a living one."

    "Let the jokester live, then! Get off!"

    It hurts, and she tastefully ignores me even though my shoulder feels like it's going to pop off. I guess demon's thought patterns are strange, but this is pushing it.

    "...But what do you want? Humans don't belong here. Living humans even less so."

    She sounds tired, and lonely... which is sad and I'd cheer her up except for the fact that I'm pinned to the ground.

    "I just pressed a button and I got sent here, that's all!"

    The pain isn't subsiding, but I'm getting used to it, gritting my teeth all the while.

    "Gotta admit... I'm not really used to this kind of flirting."
