Kozeni (小銭) - The Sneaky Ninja - Backstory Part 2
Ok, so where was I?
I had met Kusari (鎖)
The most beautiful ninja I had ever seen.
We had fallen in love.
I had been sneaking out to her cabin in the woods to, you know...
I finally felt complete.
I had started spending more time with her then I was at the temple.
Her style of training was a lot more fun.
Eventually Masutāfeisubukku (マスターフェイスブック) started looking at me a little differently.
I was beginning to think that he may be suspicious but he never said anything.
It did make me weary though.
I mean, what if he found out about us?
I became so worried that i told her I would not be back for several days so I could keep up appearances at the temple.
When I did come back to her cabin several days later, I found it empty...
I searched the cabin for her and in the back room I found something devastating!
There was blood everywhere and she was missing!
Her lucky throwing star, endowed with the mysterious powers of Jōki (蒸気), lay covered in blood on the floor...
This star was passed to her at a young age by her great grandfather Satoshi Nakamoto, a fierce warrior of a long lost clan, just before he died. Satoshi had written the sacred scrolls of Komyuniti (コミュニティ) which foretold of the wondrous powers of Jōki (蒸気). This star was endowed with the that sacred power, he held it through 3 generations of her family until her birth. Satoshi had waited nearly 900 years for her to be born. He held on to life just long enough to tell her of the power she possessed, share his prophecies with her and hand her the star. Then he vanished...
If this throwing star was left behind I could only assume the worst.
Laying next to it on the floor...
What is this?!
Why do I recognize this sword?
It feels so familiar...
That inscription on the hilt...
Like an old memory trying to surface....
Perhaps something long since repressed.
I just couldn't put my finger on it but it was so familiar.
Now I had no choice but to go to Masutāfeisubukku (マスターフェイスブック) for help.
No longer would our love be a secret...
The cat was out of the bag!
Masutāfeisubukku (マスターフェイスブック) confessed to knowing the love that Kusari (鎖) and I shared.
He said he had known for sometime but did not want to interfere.
I told him what I had found at her cabin.
All about the star, the blood and the sword.
He immediately asked to see the sword.
When I showed him he gasped, as if he had seen a ghost.!
"I know this sword!" he gasped.
"What is the symbol on it?" I asked in haste.
He paused, a pause that felt like an eternity....
"Come with me." He said with a sigh.
He then opened a hidden door and we entered...
It lead us to an old library full of very ancient books and scrolls.
As he blew off the dust I recognized the inscription on it, it was 入伸, the same inscription I saw on the sword.
He opened it and showed me a drawing, barely visible.
It was the very same sword!
If I looked closely I could barley see the same symbol inscribed in the hilt.
Masutāfeisubukku (マスターフェイスブック) began to read, "It says here that this is the sacred sword of inspiration. Created by master forger @enginewitty, AKA X4OL1N, very long ago...
That it was made for, and is wielded by, none other than Maikeru devu~iddo (マイケル・デヴィッド)."
" @enginewitty," I think to myself, "That is the same master forger that created the Jōki (蒸気) throwing star that Kusari (鎖) has wielded since childhood. This can be no coincidence."
"Maikeru devu~iddo (マイケル・デヴィッド)?", I ask in wonder.
With a solemn expression, Masutāfeisubukku (マスターフェイスブック) responded with only, " @michaeldavid..."
Then he paused once more, a look of deep concern fell over him.
" @michaeldavid and I have been rivals for a very long time. We have known each other since childhood. We used to be friends until he betrayed me and left the village of Sōsharumedia (ソーシャルメディア). He is an evil and powerful master of very strange powers.", Masutāfeisubukku (マスターフェイスブック) explained...
"He now hides deep in the forests of Mt. Intānetto (インターネット). He must have found out that I was training Kusari (鎖) and killed her so the great power of Jōki (蒸気) would never be released into the world. You must take this sword and kill him Kozeni (小銭)! It is your destiny!"
"Here, this map of Mt. Intānetto (インターネット) will take you to him!" He shouted as he handed me a peculiar looking map.
"Master, I will defeat this evil overlord and return here victorious! Using the techniques of Sukinahito (好きな人) and Kyōyū (共有) that you have so graciously taught me. I will avenge my Kusari (鎖), my love, and restore honor to Sukina Jiin (好きな寺院)!", I proclaimed.
