Chapter 1 – Did You Think it’s the Last Boss? Too Bad! It’s the Prologue!
In a vast reddish wasteland that extend until the horizon. Crater that seems like have been hit by meteor, cavity that seems like getting gouged up, and cloud of sand blows fiercely can be seen as far away as one eyes can see. Inside this sight that made you think that even post war damage is a joke, more like it’s the end of the world, there are two people unfolding a battle that gets beyond mortals logic.
A young lad with black hair and common appearance.
A guy in his prime with bursting muscle, tanned skin, and exposed torso.
Those two battle has comes to the level of ignoring the flow of times. Passing days after days without any regard of anything else except battling.
The young lad uses any means of battle that he can get. Slashing with a sword, piercing with a spear, smashing with an axe, surprise attack with a bow, rapid firing with a gun, but all of it was repelled by his enemy. That was just using his bare hand.
It keeps on repeating until ones can’t even tell how many hours passed. A battle of those two seems to continue for eternity.
“O… Oo… …”
But there are no such things as an eternal conflict, the young lad sword at last pierces his enemy torso. Not only that, there are numerous scar and wound on the macho guy body, there also some weapon stabbing his body here and there.
“At last….. At last this time has comes…… Young lad Renya…… The fruit of your effort…… How much had I waited for this times to come……”
The young lad that is called as Renya didn’t respond to his talk. No, he can’t even respond even if he wants to. He had battled with all his body and mind devoted in it until the end. with rugged breath, he can only keep his ear open to hear what the macho guy say. The truth is he wants to say many things to the macho guy, but he has exhausted all of his energy that even talking is impossible.
“A mortal potent possibility…… who knows it can become this much…… I still had my doubt when my daughter speaks of it…… but……”
Macho guy body fades gradually. Despite bearing innumerable wounds that even one of them proven to be fatal for normal human, he will keep on standing until he meet his demise. That figure, even in his hazy consciences still reminds Renya of the heroic tale a certain person named Benkei.
“Just as promised…… My power as the [War God]…… will be handed over to you…… Getting this life ended…… before I fall into corruption…… I truly appreciate it…… you have my gratitude……”
From his feet, macho guy’s body starts to turn into light particle and scatter away. Slowly.. slowly.. just like when human eyelid closed upon death’s door.
“Up until the last I know I’m being spoiled but…… I entrust my daughter in your hand…… good bye…… human, despite your small body, it does possess the potential of infinity possibility…… My beloved daughter…… for getting along your father foolishness…… I ask for forgiveness……”
With that last will, while still keeps on standing, war god meet his demise. Looking at that figure, Renya closes his eyes and bows. And in the wasteland with numerous destruction sign, at last, he stands alone.
Many feeling got mixed up in his heart. It has finished at last, which kind of deeply moving feeling is there. But there’s also other things mixed in. Things that if he don’t shout it out loud it feel that his feelings won’t get cleared up.
“WHAT THE HECK SHOULD I DO AFTER THIS DAMMMMMMMMMMMMIIIIIIIIITTTTTTTTT!!!”
In the middle of nowhere, a scream of despair erupted.
