abandoned Unbinding Love [Vergil x Liily_]

I sigh as I watch the ceiling of my room while I lay down in my bed to think about the recent boredom hitting me now and hearing a beeping sound which made me glance at the headgear light up. I slowly lift my upper body as the game has being open to the public at long last and I quickly manages to put my headgear to turn it on. As I lay down waiting for the headgear to take effect, I felt a sharp pain sensation in the back of my head which made me open my eyes and gasp to find myself in a plaza of the game. 

That's strange, what was that pain sensation early?...

I scratch the back of my head as the pain was early felt but no longer due to me being in the virtual world and realizing at my avatar's arm. The feeling of movement made me feel like it was truly me making those movements and my eyes shot up to see the water fountain. I rush to it as I see my own reflection in the water which was already a red flag since this could leak at my true identity and seeing other players log in after. I look around to see more and more player showing up in this large plaza as they began to see the game in action while me being very skeptic about all of this.

I arrive home from a late day of working. I take of my work clothes and get dressed in a track suit and loose t-shirt. I fall onto my bed and close my eyes for awhile, thinking about the day I've had. Once I finish I look over to my clock on my bed side table. It was still early. I jump up from my bed and head over to my desk and start up my computer while putting on my headset. 

"I guess some time on here wouldn't hurt." I say out loud to nobody. 

As I wait for the game to load I feel a sharp pain at the back of my head and black out for a second. I open my eyes to be met with a different surrounding than my room. It looked like the game plaza. I look down at my appearance and see I'm in my avatars outfit.

"Wait what...?Why are my dreams so weird?!" I pinch myself just to make sure I was dreaming. I wasn't. I begin to panic, unsure of what to do.

As I began thinking about the sudden change in the game, I notice a bunny girl avatar acting a bit strange and pinching herself which mean she is experiencing what I am. The empty plaza from before became crowded with players as their voice became together and becoming incoherent to for my ears which made this already problem a huge one at this point. I felt their panic as they bump into me while I glare at their lack of patience and pushing me toward the girl I previously mention and getting her attention due to them. 

"Uh, Hello there?" I spoke.

I was a bit taken back as I couldn't speak with her properly since I was forced to speak and she did turn so I didn't have much of a choice in the matter. Still, this could be a good opportunity to gather intel about this matter from a player perspective rather than my own. 

I clear my throat, "Do you have any idea to this little problem we all are having?" I ask, more clearly.

"O-Oh umm Hi there... I have no idea what's happening, sorry." I awkwardly smile at you, feeling uncomfortable with everyone pushing us closer to each other.  "All I know is that I'm in a rpg game." I say blankly.

A person bumps me into your chest. I begin to get flustered and try and find whoever bumped into me. "S-sorry!" I back away from you with a red face.

I felt her soft breast press on my chest which made me feel her real soft tits which was a surprised for a game to even emulate such feel but she apologized and retreat herself from me which was a bit sad. I became a bit annoyed at this people so I grab this girl's arm and flee from this crowded scene as we snuck into a dark alleyway and letting their voice died down at long last. I release her from my grasp as I have the time to think about this in peace and turn to the random stranger with me due to her being the first person I spoke. 

"I see, I guess you are as confused as I am with this." I sigh, "Anyways, what's your name? I mean if you like to reveal your real name to a stranger that is." I spoke, a bit fluster.

"Lily..." I answer a bit dumbly, still flustered from you hold my wrist. "My names Lily. Yours?" I say again regaining confidence and relaxing a bit more. 

I look around the alley curiously, remembering it when I played 'normally'. I look over to the plaza seeing more people arriving. I giggle at their reactions and then remember how I was and stopped. I look back over to you.

I became a bit speechless as she reveals her true name and blushing from something while she asks of me about my name since it was fair for me to return the favor. 

"Vergil..." I spoke, slowly.

It felt odd giving away my real name to a complete stranger but somehow, it felt like I could trust this person which was odd for me to feel like this but I truly can. She may be a bit goofy but she wasn't evil nor like the type of person that could backstab me. Trust in time like this is crucial and I don't know anyone besides her for the time being but having an ally is reassuring enough. 

"Also, I have to apologize for grabbing you like that so suddenly," I spoke, truthfully.

I look over at you with a blush creeping onto my cheeks. I twiddle with my fingers and look at my feet. "Oh, don't worry... It's fine!" I look around awkwardly for awhile then break the silence. "Umm so I guess we're stuck here... wanna make the most of since we'll probably be gone soon..." I ask, once again relaxing.

I became a bit confused at her wording since I don't quite understand what she was referring and I need to ask since it looks like it means something important to her. 

"What do you mean make the most of it? and gone?" I ask, curious.

"Make the most of being in the game. We'll probably be back in reality soon...That's what I meant" I answer flustered. "Didn't that make sense? I'm probably speaking jibberish...." I though and became embarrassed. I look at my feet once more to avoid eye contact. 

"Well I mean, if you want... You probably don't wanna hang around me... It's fine..."

I smile at the flustered girl as she lacks any self-confidence and reminds me of someone I know which probably trigger this emotion within my heart. My body began to move on its own as I softly hug her to make her feel less worried and caress her bunny ears while I felt a bit happy making this decision which was something I hardly do to someone I barely know. Something about Lily made me feel like I need to protect her and see that wonderful smile of her which sound like an excuse but still, I care for her safety. 

"I really like your personality so, I don't mind having you following me around." I smile.

I look up at you a bit surprised, but then smile at you shyly.  I awkwardly hug you back unsure of what to do.  “Oh umm thanks Vergil... I don’t think I would really hang out with anyone else-“ I look at you with a blush on my cheeks. “W-well I mean I’m pretty shy so I can’t really talk to people... I would get bored without someone...” 

Why am I this awkward?! I just met the guy and I’m already acting like an idiot

I chuckle at her cute personality showing which made me pat her gentle head while her bunny ears began twitching from my soft caress and smiling at her since she was probably feeling a bit overwhelmed from all of this new situation. In fact, she looks rather attractive for a bunny girl as she acts clumsy and I need to stay by her side so she could rely on me more which was bound to happen with her personality. 

"It's fine Lily, we should stick together through this so...." I mutter, thinking, "Where do you want to go from here?.." I ask, curious.

“Hmmm i don’t know. We can go outside of the town if you want.,”

I look back at the plaza that has finally calmed down. “But we need weapons since there’s probably stuff out there.” I say remembering what beasts and creatures there are outside of the town. 

“Wait no umm what about somewhere in the town like a pub or something?”

"I see, it would be wise to come equip for the monster lurking around since this place is from a game so it would be better for us to do that." I nod. 

Lily was shy but more capable on her own as she thinks about the situation more clearly than others I seeing which impress me quite a lot to see a girl with this much potential and holding her hand which was fine by her. The soft skin rubbing upon my was quite addicting which is why people enjoy grabbing a fair maiden's hand and slowly walking to the corridor as we try to find a blacksmith or a pub that hold such weapon for our disposal.

Walking hand in hand with you was pretty nice. I see now how amazing it is to have a patrner to do this sort of stuff with. Maybe we could- no stop it Lily you just met him! 

I brush off my previous though and look around the town. In the corner of my eye I could see a blacksmith. I get excited seeing it and tighten my grip around your hand. “Come on! I saw a blacksmith over there!” I start running towards it pulling you along with me.

As I walk around here looking for a shop, I suddenly feel her hand grip on my hand as I gasp and feeling my arm being yank by Lily as I was forced to follow her little chase around the street. We arrive at the blacksmith as she luckily found one with her quick reflex as the man brought us the good and show us a variety of weapon to us. 

"Which weapon are you going to pick Lily?" I ask, curious. 

As I spoke, I fail to realized I was still holding her hands as I was too engrossed on picking a good weapon for me and hearing her reply.

“Hmm let me see... Ah that one there!” I let go of your hand, letting the warmth of it leave mine, which didn’t feel that good. IT almost made me sad that I had to. I point over to an axe on one of the walls with a white handle and blue handle. I try reaching for it but unfortunately I have been cursed for being short. I try once more this time on my tippy-toes but once again fail. I look over at you with an embarrassed face. “H-hey can you get it for me?” I ask, stuttering.

I look at her hand pointing toward an Axe which was a surprise to see Lily picking that as her weapon and seeing her rushing toward it but fail due to her height. It was rather cute of her to tippy-toes to reach and slowly turning to me with her blushing face which made me chuckle at her. My feet move toward the pouting Lily so I pat her gentle hair and easily reaching over to it so I can give her weapon. 

"Here you go sweety~" I teased.

It was odd for me to teasing this cute bunny girl as I felt like teasing her since she was so cute and rather attached to me ever since that little encounter we had at the beginning

I glare at you once you say your comment. “Hey! I am short but that doesn’t mean you can tease me about it!” I whine sounding like a three year old having a tantrum. 

I take the axe in my hands, which was surprisingly light. I swing the axe looking quite proud of myself. It was quite dorky since I thought I was so cool for having the axe. 

“Anyways, what are you getting?”

I smile at her cute little tantrum as she looks quite adorable as she swings that thing around but also quite surprised she could do that with her fragile body of hers, almost impressed in fact. Lily ask me about my weapon of choice as I walk around the shelf of weapon stack next to me and lifting my hand to pick a scythe from the stack as swing it around with ease. 

"A scythe, pretty cool, huh?" I ask. 

I turn to Lily as I wanted to know about her opinion about my weapon and almost wanting her attention deep inside of my heart due to some strange connection binding us.

I lift my head up, my eyes leaving my axe. I look over at you with a curious expression and see the scythe in your hands. “What- Yeah the scythe is cool!” 

I turn back to my axe and give it another swing, giggling. “Now we look like real mmo characters.” I say smiling widely towards you.

To be honest it’s quite weird how I’m acting. Usually i’m Quite and really shy, but with you I’m different. Even though we’ve known each other for like half an hour i’m Already joking around with you and just acting like friends. It made me happy in a weird way, just seeing you smile made butterflies flutter in my heart. Though i keep brushing off those feelings since well I really don’t know you.

“You think so? So what’s the plan now? Wanna test out this bad boy?” I ask, smiling.

I watch Lily happily swing her axes around while giggling which was cute and something a kid would when they receive a new toy. Regardless of her answer, I took her hand once again to feel that familiar soften and letting my fingers wrap around her by accident like couple do while making my weapon appear in my inventory. I lead the charge as I took my bunny girl outside as we began walking out to see the large grassland bio outside of the town and some weak monster doing their business across the land. Also, we could see some island floating from across the horizon which mean lots of unexplored land we needed to check and many thing we could do here if this game allow such.

"Come on let's fight something!" I shout, enthusiastically. I start running over to the grassland but stop once I get closer to a monster. I turn to you and signal for you to come over to where I was.

"I can't fight it...It looks so helpless...I didn't want to shout over to you since I would scare it or either make it angry, so yeah..." I admit awkwardly laughing at the end.

The world was devastated by a huge Asteroid that crash landed on the planet in 2058, one equal to the size of the one that wiped the Dinosaurs out. It was the first of many asteroids that devastated the planet. 79% of all life has been wiped out, along with 90% of the human population. Resources are scarce and humans are clinging to life, having been reduced back to the stone age.

      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.
