I woke up to the strong light piercing my eye lids and forcing me to wake up as I slowly open my eyes. The sun welcome to this cold reality which I cover with my hand and quickly shut the blind to make me room pitch black. I slowly drag myself into the comfortable chair and sigh as I pull the headgear on while turning on the monitor. I wait patiently as the game load up and suddenly a flash of light overwhelm my sense of sight. 

Finally, back at the real reality..

I log into the game’s main hub work, District Zero and see my avatar from the puddle underneath me. I glance up to always see this place constantly raining and the only District having this kind of continuous weather. I lower my hat down as my walk my way to the PVP chamber and start having some fun in there.

A girl walked into the PVP chamber at the same time as him, a tag over her head letting everyone know who she was. The Black Rose. She had high level armor, which was only a white jacket with holes cut in the sleeves to allow her arms to slip out at the inside of the elbows. Her red pants bagged were lowered at the front, exposing her black lingerie underneath. She carried a high level assault rifle on her back, a shotgun, and two of the highest level pistols at her sides. She walked with an utterly confident stride. It was clear that she had some amazing experience in this game. She looks at him, not seeing a character tag over his head. 

"Hey you, nameless gamer! I challenge you to a duel!"

She smiled, knowing that everyone would turn at the sound of her voice to look at her and him. She pointed directly at him, the sea of people departing to give her a clear view of the man that she had challenged. He was high-tier as well, but she had full confidence in herself that she could beat the ever-loving pixels out of him.

"Whaddaya say, sir?"

I stop as I hear a woman voice calling me out as I have nothing as my username giving me the nickname, Nameless. I look at the weird dress avatar as her breasts are so closed at being exposed and noticing her having two cat tail behind her. I glance above her head to see Black Rose and hearing that name before but it didn’t matter. She came to me for a challenge I can’t back down and I grab the tip of my hat while narrowing my eyes at my new opponent.

”Sure, sound fine to me. Come, follow me.” I spoke.

I could hear people gathering around the spectator area and whispering about her recent tantrum which I didn’t need. Still, she was strong from the look of her profile and hopefully a good opponent to fix my boredom. I enter a room as I quickly setup our lobby and picking a random stage for us to battle on. I look at her as this girl was carrying a lot of variety into her hands and handling almost any reach with the exception of close combat.

As they walk, she exchanges a sniper rifle for her shotgun and several throwing knives into a pouch on her thigh from the equip menu as they walk. She closes the menu and continues to follow. As they stepped into the room, she selects the lobby that he had set up, with two participants and no spectators. She smiles and figures that he really didn't enjoy the company of spectators, even though they couldn't see their messages or hear their voices.

"You really don't like people watching you, do you?"

Her voice was bubbly, yet commanding. She watched as the timer ticked down slowly, filling her with a sense of anxiety and sheer excitement.

"Come on, come on, come on..."

I began fiddling with some options regarding lives and spectators while Black Rose began question my view on the matter. In truth, I didn’t mind spectators but I rather keep my strategies and fighting style a secret from the public so spotting a weakness would make it difficult for one person rather than masses.

”You can say that.” I reply, bluntly.

I watch as the time came to a close as she look very excited for this match and I felt the same way but not actually showing. The room warp up into a jungle biome fill with trees at every corner and putting us in a random location across the big map. I began scouting the area as I pull my handgun out and carefully navigating the perimeter knowing she had a rifle waiting for my head.

Knowing this map well, She scaled the first tree she could. She activated a camo packet, blending in with the trees as she pulled out her Sniper rifle. She scanned the area for him using a separate scope first, then switching to the rifle once she'd found him. She giggles softly to herself, dropping out of the tree and slowly making her way closer to him. For some reason, she was more excited than she'd ever been. She hadn't battled another high tier player in forever.

"I've got you..."

She whispered under her breath as she catches him in her sights, She aimed the sights of her assault rifle directly at his head as she saw him emerge cautiously from behind a tree. She pulled and held the trigger, sending a barrage of bullets directly at him. She hid behind a tree and scale it before looking back down at him. One bullet had grazed his cheek.

I walk around this silent forest which was too quiet for my comfort until see a bullet pierce my cheek and quickly sidestepping away from that spot. I grunt as my health bar drop from that sudden gorilla attack and I glance back to see where the bullet came from.

“Not bad, but gorilla tactics won’t work on me.” I mutter.

I began sprinting toward that direction as I pull out a smoke grenade from my pocket and pulling the pin to initiate the countdown. I fling it over toward that direction to set this part of the forest engulf with dark cloud and making difficult for anyone to see. I pull out my other handgun as I slide from my sudden stop to see her jumping out from the thick and unbearable smoke choking her lungs. I barrage of hell storm welcome to girl as the sound of bullet echoes across the first and the smell of gun powder fill the air from the constant shooting.

She dodged quickly between the bullets as the estimation marks appeared. She pulled out her duel pistols, aiming them in his direction as she unloads both clips at him. She uses the distraction to roll a grenade at him, and then a secondary gravitation grenade, which pulled in everything withing six feet towards it. She detonated the grenades manually, not wanting to wait for the time to run out. She sure hoped that she would be able to at least injure him with the normal grenade, and then immobilize him with debris from the gravitational one.

The girl retaliate with her own hellfire and both of us unloading our clip as our bullet collided with each other. I notice a grenade popping out from the bullet hell which Int eyes widen and noticing yet another one right behind one which exploded faster. The explosion wasn’t detonate but rather a strong vacuum pulling me toward the rotating grenade and I grunt as my body began to leavitate from the air. 

This isnt good.

I see her holding the detonation of the first bomb as I pull my Vajra to thrust down to grip myself from being pull away and seeing her slowly pushing the down the button. I extend my hand to shoot away the grenade away for me and to aim it toward the black hole consuming everything which exploded having no damage deal to me. I was quite impressed by her quick thinking and this was turning a bit fun for me.

She smiles and throws two more gravitational grenades next to him, immediately setting them off as they landed and watching as they merged with the first to create a stronger suction. She pulled out her sniper and took aim as the smoke was pulled in. The second she can see the whites of his eyes, she pulls the trigger, straight into his virtual heart. 

"It's over."

I hear another explosion as the suction became even strong than before and making my weapon slowly slide away from the surface of the floor which was a problem so I have to think of another way out of here. I notice the smoke slowly clearing away which mean I was a sitting duck at this point and I have to do something about this problem. My eyes widen to see her clearly and I look back at the hole which could be the end of me if I let go but I had an idea which wasn't something I want to see. I sigh as my cap falls from my head and into the strong vacuum of that hole shredding into pieces like I expected to be and I extend my right arm to her. I chain hidden from my sleeve shout to her and grabbing her wrist so I can pull the girl to me so she could feel what I was feeling with this problematic grenade. 

"I am not going to go down alone, I am going to take you with me." I spoke.

"Ah, fuck..."

She sighs softly before she takes out two of her throwing daggers. She throws them at him and they stick into his shoulders. She frantically tries to undo the chain from around her wrist, grabbing the end and starting to unwrap it from around her wrist. It was extremely heavy to her, and she wondered how in the hell he could carry it around like that. She took a pistol and pointed it directly at his forehead

"I don't have to lose with you!"

And with that, she shot, hitting his square in the forehead. She smiles as she sees the victory menu in front of her. The area disappears and she is sent back to the lobby where she stands face to face with Nameless. She extends her hand out to him, offering a handshake

"That was an interesting duel. You almost had me there until I realized I still had a bullet left in one of my pistols. Good game, nameless player"

I lower my cap as I shake her hand since I didn’t expect her to have bullet still and from the bullet exchange we have, i was sure we both lost all our ammunition. Still, I shake her soft hand since that was the right thing to do after a good game like that and a bit impressed with her skill to counterattack.

”Yeah, I didn’t know there was someone out there with potential like yourself. Nice job, keep playing and you could be even better.” I explain.

Losing is a way for me to improved and meaning I lack more training that I need to do by my lonesome. After speaking and releasing her hand, I walk away from her as I have to relax to my usual hang out area to think about this match for a while.

"Oi, wanna get a drink? I think that you deserve something on almost making this end with a tie."

She smiles and puts her hand on her shapely hip. It was obvious by her determined facial expression that she wasn't willing to take "No" for an answer. She wanted to know more about this mysterious player. Something about how mysterious he was piqued her interest in him. She walks forward and walks right next to him

"I know a place around here that sells some sodas that are amazeballs! Whaddaya say?"

She give him a kind grin, showing off her lovely smile as she looked up at him. She noticed that he was fairly taller than her, and she found it likable that she had to look up at him.

I flinch slightly as I see Black Rose walking next to me as she began striking up a conversation and thinking that our conversation ended with my compliment with her skill which probing to be not in this case. She began explaining to me about a place that sells some great sodas that peek my interest and I turn to her a smile since she was giving one as well despite her rather confidence from our previous game. 

"Is that so? I would like to take that offer if you don't mind." I smile.

I didn't understand why she wanted to hang out with me since most players were jealous of my abilities or thinking I was beyond their comprehension which I could understand but I do enjoy some nice talk once in a while. We walk together as I follow her lead toward that special place she excitedly announces and having a look at their soda before announcing if they are the best as she claims they are.

Black Rose leads him to a small looking restaurant. One wouldn't normally expect much from such a small place, but the drinks were absolutely phenomenal. She leads him in, sitting down at the bar-like table at the back of the restaurant. She orders a cherry cream soda for both him and her. The drinks materialize in front of them on the bar and she grabs hers, taking a small sip of it and letting a smile pull at the corners of her mouth

"So, what should I call you? Can't just call you 'Nameless Gamer' forever, now can I?"

She smirks and looks at him, shifting slightly in her seat to lean more towards the mysterious man.

I follow her lead as she strangely took me into a rather petite building which was rather odd for this place to be holding up some sort of business but despite that, I could see some players hanging around which made me rethink about what she told me. Black Rose lead me to a table at the back while she began ordering something for the both us and I glance down to see cherry cream soda appearing from thin air. I began taking a sip of the best soda she exclaims not too along and my eyes widen a bit to feel the flavor explode in my mouth. my body shakes from the sugary rush which I expected but the cold liquid running down my throat and the strong flavor made me a bit surprised at how good this soda was. She suddenly began asking about my nickname and while noticing her getting a bit too close for comfort. 

"Why not? I prefer like that either way since I did put nothing on my username and allow it." I answer.

I could see her breast popping out from her barely covered breast and just noticing how overly exposed this girl was since she could be easily mistaken to be a rather lewd girl based on appearance.

She shifted her body so that she could see more of her cleavage to him. She had caught the glance that he had snuck as one of her breasts teased him by barely showing under her white cloak. Her ears twitched and her tails sway erratically behind her with a twinge of annoyance at his answer. She gives him a flirty smile and leans over the table in a seductive pose as she takes a sip of her drink

"Well, I have to call you something... And 'Nameless Player' is going to be a bit controversial for my taste."

She smiles and looks into his eyes as her clementine orange orbs scan his features.

I notice the girl shifting her chest so I could see her breast more clearly and narrow my eyes as she did notice my rude peeking which mean she didn’t mind a little spectators. Even so I sigh while looking away an think about something to give her since revealing my name is rather private while also hardly know this person. 

“Controversial in what way?” I ask, curious, “If you are that eager then why don’t you give a nickname? I don’t want to reveal my name to a complete stranger I just meet even if your avatar is rather....exposing.” I explain.

I glance back to see her smiling and very close to my face which made me feel a bit unease at this situation. I couldn’t lie to myself since my body was reacting from her lewdness and my avatar feeling the entire thing.

"Just that I'm not used to people with no names... Makes them a little too mysterious for me... But if you insist that I give you a nickname... How do you like 'Master'?~"

She gives a seductive smile as she gently starts to play with her own hair. She took another small sip of her drink and looks at him with her beautiful orange eyes

My eyes widen as I look away from her gleaming eyes and hearing her lewd answer which was completely out of the left field. I could feel my face beaming red at her since she was that type of girl and probably wanting something from me but whatever it is, she wanted it badly.

”Why are you so pushy? Are you like this with the others and what do you want from me exactly?” I wonder.

She giggles when he starts to ask her questions. Her lips purse as she thinks for a second, the scar on her nose jutting out predominantly. She smiles and rests a hand on her cheek

"Only with the ones that are able to intimidate me~ And as for what I want? All I want is a good time~ And it's definitely not limited to battles~"

Her eyes shimmer softly as she holds contact with his

I felt her warm hand caressing my cheeks as she spoke her mind to me and without any hesitation in her voice which was rather impressed if she was truly acting her part. I knew what she wanted since her appearance scream what she truly loves to do and I sort lean toward that idea since she was so clinging to have a good time which I began to struggle to even do that. 

"You want to do that here? Are you that desperate for some fun with a complete stranger?" I smile, teasing.

I try to play along with her little act and hopefully exploiting her secret while in the process to find out her true agenda from this fun.

"Whoever said anything about doing it here?~ But... If you'd like~"
Gina pulls the lower half of her cloak apart to reveal more of her features, but still keeping the top half of her breasts concealed. She wanted to tease him into her web of seduction. Her motives were very clear, and she knew that they were as well. She stands, finishing off her drink before sitting on the edge of the virtual table.

"So~ You in~"

      What's this?  I'm actually writing more of this?  Well, it is National Novel Writing Month, and that means forcing myself to not edit my own writing.  It's also a first draft, so there are sure to be mistakes here and there, but either way, I hope you enjoy.
       
      'This world is divided by light and darkness. Those who side with the light, and those who choose to walk the path of darkness. It is a world where humans can obtain special powers through hard work and training. Some are born with their power. People can use their powers for whatever they want. For justice or for chaos. Most people don't even know their powers exist, so they live normal lives, unaware of their potential.'
       
      "Zero! Stop daydreaming and focus!" Zero heard the loud voice of his father and opened his eyes, remembering he was still in the middle of the day's training session. He had to beat his father in a sparring match using the short sword he normally used during training against his old man's personal greataxe. The brown haired boy got into a fighting stance and prepared himself for whatever his old man had in store for him.
       
      The man took a few slow steps forward in an attempt to fake Zero out before charging right at him. He raised the axe in his hands and swung at Zero. Since the swing was slow, Zero easily evaded the initial swing by jumping back. When the axe slammed into the ground, Zero's dad tightened his grip on his weapon, focusing his power on the earth. A pillar of earth erupted from the ground in front of where the axe was stuck, flying straight at Zero.
       
      'Looks like he's changing up his strategy,' Zero thought. He ducked to avoid the pillar coming at him, but the action left him vulnerable for a potential follow up attack. The ground below Zero began to glow a bit shortly before a second pillar of earth came out of the ground and hit Zero in the chest, sending him flying into the air.
       
      'Are you serious? A second attack? He's not playing around today,' Zero thought, moving his free hand towards his chest while he fell. In the time Zero was falling back down to the ground, his dad had pulled his axe out of the ground and waited for Zero to get close to the ground in order to hit him when he couldn't defend himself well. He swung the axe once Zero got close enough to the ground, but Zero used his own short sword to attempt blocking the attack. While he had managed to avoid any fatal injuries, he was pushed away by the sheer force of the swing and crashed to the ground. His body slid against the ground, dirt and dead grass getting on his arm and the side of his t-shirt.
       
      "What's going on, Jared? Why are you so eager to cleave me in half today?" Zero questioned while he slowly got back on his feet. He raised his sword again in preparation for whatever his dad had in store for him next.
       
      "Training should be as close to real combat as possible. You know this, Zero. If you want to awaken your power, I have to push you to your limits. Now, stop talking and fight, otherwise you'll be skipping out on dinner tonight," Jared replied while he readied himself.
       
      "Tyrant," Zero mumbled. He let out a low sigh and took a look around Jared, biting his lip after his short analysis of the area. Jared had been standing in an area of the backyard where there was no grass at all, which would allow him to use his power with no grass numbing the force of his earth based abilities. Zero nodded to himself and made a run for Jared, dragging his sword across the dead grass. Jared took a defensive stance in response to this. When Zero saw this, a small smile crept up on his face. Instead of going for a head on attack, Zero leaped into the air in an attempt to get behind his dad.
       
      'Didn't see this coming, did you?' Zero thought when he landed behind Jared, throwing the sword aside and tackling the man from behind. Jared had not expected Zero's move, but tried to move against the boy. Zero had the edge in the situation and managed to push Jared onto the dead grass. When Zero pushed Jared, he stumbled a few steps forward. Jared looked behind him to find Zero making run for his sword.
       
      "Don't abandon your weapon, you fool!" Jared shouted, turning around and weaving his fingers around a bit. Several rock spires came rising from the ground around Zero's sword in order to keep him away from the weapon. When Zero tried to get close to the rock spires, rocky spikes came jutting out of the spires. Zero wasn't able to avoid being cut by a few of the spikes. Zero quickly jumped back a few paces while he wiped a bit of blood off a cut on his cheek. With his target defenseless, Jared took a chance to strike. He ran at Zero and swung at him. Zero prepared to avoid this attack, but instead of continuing his swing, Jared faked the boy out and followed up by kicking him in the chest when he got within range.
       
      Zero hit the ground hard, but he had no time to catch his breath as Jared jumped into the air and tried to impale him with his axe. Zero rolled out of the way of the attack, narrowly avoiding the axe as it slammed into the ground. While Jared worked on pulling his axe out of the ground, Zero got back on his feet again and made a beeline for the rock spires keeping his weapon trapped. As he ran, Jared pulled his axe out of the ground and turned towards Zero again. Jared ran after Zero while he lifted his axe in preparation for another attack.
       
      Even though he had managed to grab his weapon, Jared was a step ahead of him. When Zero had attempted to get out of the circle of broken rock spires, Jared was standing over him, ready to swing his axe at him. When Jared swung the axe down on Zero, he tried to block with his sword.
       
      "You're not strong enough to hold back my attack forever, Zero. After all, you've already lost," Jared pointed out. Zero didn't respond, mostly because he was putting everything he had into holding back Jared's attack. Jared was already prepared to put an end to the fight with his rock spire circle, but he was forced to move away and avoid a kitchen knife that was flying right at his head.
       
      "That's quite enough, dear. You're trying to invoke his awakening, not kill him," a woman's voice calmly pointed out. Walking towards the scene from the house was a short, brown haired woman wearing an apron over her light blue sundress. Zero let out a long sigh of relief when he finally got the chance to relax.
       
      "You're a lifesaver, mom," Zero said. The woman gave Zero a small smile before she returned her attention to Jared.
       
      "You're being far too rough with him, Jared. He isn't another one of your trainees from back in the old days. Plus, instead of nearly trying to kill our son, you could be inside, helping with dinner. You know we have a guest coming over tonight, but here you are." Zero's mom continued while Jared made his way over to her.
       
      "Christa, you need to understand that I'm-"
       
      "I'm sorry, you're what?" Christa questioned. Several knives created from water materialized in her hands as she glared at her husband. Jared quickly glanced over to Zero for a moment, then back to his wife.
       
      "I'll go get cleaned up and help get dinner started. That's what I wanted you to understand," Jared quickly replied once he thought up something. The axe in his hands disappeared and the man started running towards the house in a panic. Once Jared was gone, the knives in Christa's hands vanished and she returned her attention to Zero, who was also a bit frightened from his mother's sudden change of tone. She simply smiled and helped him stand back up.
       
      "Why don't you put that sword away and go inside? It'll be time for dinner soon," Christa asked with a smile.
       
      "Y-yes, ma'am!" Zero replied right away as he turned towards the back of the yard towards an old wooden shed. Before he could take more than a few steps, Christa put a hand on his shoulder and turned him around. With the same calm smile on her face he was used to seeing, Christa put a hand on Zero's head.
       
      "Don't take what your father says so hard. Even if he's rough with you during training, he does love you. We both love you," Christa said, but Zero shrugged and turned away from her.
       
      "Yeah, I know. Why do you say that every day? It's kind of annoying," Zero replied before he started walking towards the shed. Christa reached out for him as he walked away while she looked down at the ground.
       
      "Because we don't want you to go back to how you used to be," Christa whispered to herself.
       
      Once Zero had put away the sword, he went inside and returned to his room to get a bit of rest. He spent a few minutes pretending to swing around a sword as a bit of self practice before he let out a low sigh and lowered his hand.
       
      "It's been five years since I started my training. I wonder when I'll finally get powers like mom and Jared," Zero questioned himself while he lied down on the bed, looking up at the ceiling.
       
      'Maybe if I had a weapon of my own and powers like them, I could do something. Go to school like normal kids or maybe do some good for the world like some kind of superhero...' Zero thought to himself. He shook his head while he sat up.
       
      "Instead, I'm stuck here in a nowhere town where everyone knows everyone. Nothing ever happens around this place. I could be using my skills for something productive," Zero said to himself while he stood up. He threw on a t-shirt he had laying on the floor and decided to confront his parents about it. On his way down the stairs, he could hear his parents talking with someone. Zero stopped when he heard the voices and slowly snuck down the steps, peeking into the living room to find Christa and Jared sitting on one of the couches in the living room with an unfamiliar man in a gray t-shirt sitting in a chair across from them, taking a sip from a teacup.
       
      "And that's generally where things stand right now. It's been a mess over there since the first incident two years ago. The police say it's due to unknown causes, but that's a load of crap. Check these out," the man said, opening up a folder and tossing a number of pictures onto the coffee table between the three adults. Jared picked up one of the images, but all he could see was a blurry black figure with golden eyes surrounded by red.
       
      "Bruce, what the hell are these? Is this some kind of joke?" Jared questioned while he threw the picture back onto the table.
       
      "These are pictures taken by someone who claims to have seen monsters in Star City, the same place where the first incident took place. In his story, he's also claiming that these same monsters are responsible for a number of disappearances over the past year," Bruce replied.
       
      Jared sighed and shook his head. "And why are you coming to us with your little monster story? We're out of the business now, Bruce. We already have enough to worry about between Zero's training and the assassins he's sending after us," Jared said.
       
      "Come on, Titan. You and Scarlet Blade here are professionals. A little monster problem is nothing for a duo like you. I'm giving you two a prime opportunity here to get back in the business. You can even get your son in on-"
       
      "Out of the question," Christa said.
       
      "Are you serious? A little field experience could do the boy some good. He won't improve just from physical training and sparring matches he can't win," Bruce asked.
       
      "As I said, out of the question. Zero will not leave our protection until we feel he is ready. Now, I suggest you drop this little suggestion or else," Christa replied while the air around her began to get colder. Bruce leaned back in his chair as he watched a smile slowly make it's way onto Christa's face.
       
      "How about I just give you two some time to think things over?" Bruce asked while he slowly started gathering up the pictures and his folder.
       
      "There's nothing to think about, Bruce. We're not going to-"
       
      "That's just what you're thinking right now, Earth Titan. Sit down over some tea and talk it over. I'll be back just in time for dinner," Bruce said before Jared could finish talking. The man stood up and started making his way towards the front door. Hearing the approaching footsteps, Zero hurried back up the stairs to hide from Bruce. The man stopped in front of the door, turning back towards Jared and Christa.
       
      "You two should seriously consider this offer. I came here to you as a friend. This is a well paying mission just to deal with some monsters, and I'd hate to see you pass it up. After all, this whole thing may be more than it looks like on paper. Keep that in mind when you're making your decision," Bruce said, his tone suddenly becoming serious. Once he said his piece, he opened up the door and walked outside. Jared and Christa were left alone to consider Bruce's offer and the information he had given them.
       
      "What do you think, Christa? If what Bruce said is right, this job should be simple enough for the two of us to take on," Jared said, but Christa shook her head.
       
      "I think we should focus more on Zero's training. After all, it was because we were busy with that mercenary work that he ended up..." Christa answered, stopping herself before she finished her sentence.
       
      "You may be right. Even though that power has shown no signs of surfacing, we can't leave Zero here by himself," Jared said.
       
      "Then it's agreed. When Bruce comes back later for dinner, we'll decline his offer. After all, it's important that we monitor Zero's condition, especially considering that mad scientist is out there somewhere," Christa said while she stood up and grabbed Bruce's leftover cup from off the table. She glanced over to the door for a moment, considering what Bruce had said before he left. After a moment, she shook her head and started walking into the kitchen.
       
      While Jared and Christa were in the middle of their conversation, Zero returned to his room and sat down on his bed while he thought about what he heard.
       
      'Monsters in Star City, huh? I know there used to be talk on the news about strange things going on around there, but those reports suddenly stopped a few months ago? That Bruce guy said it was an easy job. Maybe it's something even I could do, but...' Zero thought to himself, clenching his fists when he remembered what Christa had said.
       
      'Zero will not leave our protection until we feel he is ready,' Zero remembered hearing his mother say to Bruce. He slowly stood up and walked towards the door while he clenched his fists.
       
      "How long will that be, though? Until they're old and grey?  I might not have any powers yet, but I know I have what it takes to fight off a few monsters by myself," Zero said while he put on his shoes and walked out of his room.  As he made his way down the stairs, he could hear Christa barking orders to Jared, who was in the middle of cleaning up the backyard. Without bothering to check up on when dinner would be done, Zero walked out the front door and began walking away from the house.
       
      Zero and his family lived in a small, two story house surrounded by trees.  They lived away from any neighbors to avoid noise complaints during Zero's training sessions.  Black curtains covered the windows to make it seem like nobody was home. At the same time, however, Zero felt like it was another way his parents tried to seclude him from anyone his age living in the small town.  As he walked away, a figure in a gray cloak watched him, then turned towards the house. The thick black chains wrapped around his arms rattled a bit when he moved.
       
      "The target has been found," the man said quietly to himself.
       
       
      'It must be nice...to live however you want,' Zero thought to himself, sitting on a swing while he watched a couple of kids running around, playing tag.  After he left the house, he made his way to the local elementary school's playground in order to get away from home for a bit. The kids were too busy with their game to really notice Zero.  He let out a sigh, looking towards the slowly setting sun.
       
      "Why am I stuck in this town?  Why do they watch me and keep me contained like I'm some prisoner or something? " Zero wondered, looking back down at the kids.  As he watched them running and laughing without a care in the world, an image of a young, black haired girl flashed through his mind.  Zero slowly closed his eyes, turning away from the kids.
       
      "One day, I won't just be an outsider. I'll explore the world and help people.  I'll be more like normal people. Maybe I'll even awaken my power," Zero said to himself, smiling a bit.  He slowly opened his eyes when he heard a faint growling coming from close by. A part of him was glad that nobody else was around to hear his stomach growl.
       
      "Looks like it's about that time.  Dinner should be done by now. Mom will kill me if I'm not there soon," Zero added, standing up and walking away from the swingset.  As he started walking away, a single thought came to his mind.
       
      'Who was that girl?  Why did she seem so familiar?' Zero thought to himself.  He shook his head when no details about the girl and who she might've been came to mind.
       
      "I must just be tired.  Jared hasn't been holding back in training the past few days.  I think the old man is getting paranoid or something with all that talk about assassins.  Even if I asked about it, they probably wouldn't tell me anything," Zero said, stopping when he realized he was already on the path back to his house.  While he knew the school wasn't too far away, he had not expected to get back so quickly. Zero looked towards the house and let out a sigh.
       
      As Zero made his way back to his house, he would take occasional glances towards the trees in case his dad was planning on surprising him and scolding him for going out before dinnertime.  Luckily for him, he managed to reach the front door of the house without incident. He took one final glance around before he opened up the door.
       
      "I'm back," Zero tried to say, but when he opened up the door, his nose was hit by a strong, metallic scent.  Zero took a few careful steps back as the door slowly opened up. None of the lights in the house were on, but thanks to the light of the sunset, Zero was able to spot something near the bottom of the stairs.  From where Zero was standing, he could see a familiar piece of light blue cloth with several dark red splotches on it. Zero slowly stepped into the house when he saw the cloth, trying to endure the strong smell that would assault his nose when he stepped inside.
       
      'This looks a lot like the dress mom was wearing.  Did she get into a fight with Jared or something?' Zero wondered, quickly shaking his head and dismissing the thought from his mind.
       
      'No, that's impossible.  Jared may be a bit of a meathead and a dirty fighter, but he wouldn't lay a hand on mom.  If anything, she'd be the one hurting him,' he added, walking towards the living room. Using the sunlight to guide him, Zero walked along the wall towards the nearest light switch in order to brighten up the room.  When he saw the state of the living room, a part of him wanted to just turn off the lights and pretend the whole thing was a dream. The room was in shambles. The two large couches had been thrown around, both of them full of holes.  The coffee table that was once in the middle of the room was broken into pieces while pieces of the broken table were lodged into the wall along with several knives that were likely from the kitchen. The TV had been thrown in a random direction, and like the couches, was filled with holes.  Other than the knives, there were large cuts and streaks of blood on the walls.
       
      "What the hell...?" Zero finally said after getting a good look at the scene.  His eyes followed the trail of chaos towards the hall leading to the dining room and kitchen.  Zero took a deep breath, ignoring the strong smell all around him and started walking towards the kitchen.  On his way, he tried to listen for any noises or sounds of fighting, but he heard nothing except his own footsteps as he walked across the wooden floor.
       
      'What is going on here?  Where's mom and Jared?' Zero wondered, stopping in front of a closet door in the hall on the way to the kitchen.  When he opened up the door, he found a series of swords, hand axes and knives shoved inside. Zero quickly grabbed a sword and closed the closet door, turning back towards the kitchen.  He continued moving down the hall, keeping the sword close to him just in case. Like the living room, the lights in the kitchen weren't on, but the smell of blood was much stronger compared to the living room.  The overwhelming smell made Zero stop walking. He slowly inched forward towards the dark kitchen, unaware that his arms were shaking as he moved.
       
      Stepping into the dark kitchen, Zero slowly reached for the closest switch on the wall to turn the kitchen lights on.  Like the living rooms, there were clear signs of a struggle. In the dining room, the table had been broken in half while broken pieces of glass bowls littered the floor.  Food had been left laying on the floor. More holes and bloodstains littered the walls and the three chairs that were once at the table were nothing but broken piles of wood.  When Zero looked towards the kitchen, he noticed a single, large pool of blood in front of the oven along with a drag mark leading to the backyard.
       
      Seeing no other options, Zero followed the trail of blood to the backyard, but the moment he stepped outside and looked towards where the trail of blood ended, his eyes widened.  Two pale figures were hung up from the tree by their necks with black chains. Their bodies were covered in deep cuts and their clothes stained with blood. At the base of the tree was a greataxe and a rapier.  Standing at the base of the tree was a single man with short grey hair and a grey cloak covered in blood. Thick black chains were wrapped around his arms and made a faint rattling noise whenever he moved. The man slowly turned towards Zero, meeting his gaze with deep purple eyes.
