Ukyo

 

Charlotte : "Damn it.."

Charlotte tries to free herself....But can't. There's soldiers everywhere, and the crowd, waiting for the execution.......

She looks up to the sky. It's almost sunset.....

French Soldier : "Shall we execute her now?" said the french soldier to Shogun..

Shogun : "...No."

There's a SCAR in his face...........

Shogun : "....He'll be here."

A kensai master named Ukyo stands there with the crowd, waiting for the execution...and spying on Shogun. He has his face covered so no one could see who he is....

 

[Wind blowing]

 

Shizumaru is all by himself. He opens up his umbrella, and puts it on his shoulder. He's still in the bamboo forest.
This place is so peaceful, he thought. No wonder Jubei decided to live here......

Shizumaru : "Huh?"

He looks up to the sky.......

Shizumaru : "..It's almost sunset...."

 

Charlotte...she'll be executed by sunset...

Should he have gone with the others to save her? But he didn't ask anybody to save his life back in the Fort!! He doesn't care about his life. His life sucks. All he can remember is painful memories, and being lonely almost his entire life. He got nothing else to live for but his fighting skills and to finish his mission.

Charlotte isn't his friend. He doesn't have any friends, he doesn't want any. Why would anybody so stupid to risk his or her life for another person? He never have any friends...all except Akane and...Shogun. Shogun. He almost killed him..!! He's also the one who gave Shizumaru the scar. That ugly scar....it's SO NOTICEABLE!! So ugly. Shizumaru hates it a lot. Did Shogun survive the slash? Who knows. Why would Shogun want to kill him so bad? He thought the three of them hang out just fine, just getting along. He thought Shogun was his friend.

Shogun only fights him because of Akane. It's just one girl!!! He's a great fighter and all, but easily weakened by the word "love". Love is stupid. It's a useless emotion and all it does is weaken fighters and warriors. What does Shogun see in Akane anyways? She's just one girl. Shizumaru have lots of girl companions in the past who were much prettier and more sophiscated than Akane. He had to break up with them because he travels too much... When he thinks about it, he never really felt love. When he was with his girl....it was pretty normal. Even when she tried to kiss him...it was really....nothing.............

He have seen love. Especially Hoahmaru. When he was still with Hoahmaru, he saw Hoahmaru and a woman alone. They probably know each other. The woman was sad, and tries to convince Hoahmaru to come home, to stop fighting. But he refused. Then the woman cries. He went up to her...and GIVE HER A HUG...and KISSED HER...

....A HUG?? A KISS?? Is that love? Even the greatest Samurai like Hoahmaru is weakened by a woman. That is so sick!
If it happens to him....
...will it happen to SHIZUMARU HIMSELF??

Shizumaru : "........" Shizu blinks, "......NAH!!!!!" He shakes his head, "DAMN, I THINK TOO MUCH..!!!"

He looks at the sky.......................

Then he decided to go back......

-----------------------------------------------

French Soldier : "It's SUNSET, sir."

Shogun : "...Hmm.." Shogun hesitates, then he grins, "EXECUTE HER."

French Soldier : "Yes sir.", and gives the order......

Charlotte couldn't free herself......

Charlotte : ".....damn it.!!"

The executioner received the order......

Executioner : "..HA HA HA!! It's such a pity to chop off a pretty head like YOURS..!!!"

 

[DRUM SOUND]

 

The executioner pushed Charlotte to the ground...

He sharpens the blade...and aims for her neck.....

Charlotte : "...YOU WILL NEVER GET WHAT YOU WANT, SHOGUN!!!" Shouts Charlotte, "you'll never take over Japan..!!!!!"

Shogun : "..No my dear.....at the end, I ALWAYS GET WHAT..I...WANT."

Then he grins....

Shogun : "Behead her...."

 

[DRUM SOUND]

 

The executioner lifts the blade high up..........and ready to chop off her head....
.........

"STOP!!!!!!" shouts a voice............

It's Hoahmaru and the others...they came to save her. And just in time too...

Charlotte : "HOAHMARU...!!!" gasps Charlotte, very surprised to see him........

Kazuki : "GO SAVE HER, HOAHMARU!!!" Shouts Kazuki, and he attacks the soldiers...

Hoahmaru : "Right." Nods Hoahmaru and runs to Charlotte.

The executioner attacks..!!

[SLASH]

Hoahmaru killed him...

Charlotte : "HOAHMARU...YOU CAME BACK..!!!" gasps Charlotte....

He chops off the rope, and helps her up........

Hoahmaru : "Yep, I did...."

Charlotte : "....." Charlotte blushes, then she freaks out, "I TOLD YOU NOT TO COME BACK!!! IT'S DANGEROUS!!"

Hoahmaru : "Oh c'mon, woman.....I can't leave you behind!!" smiles Hoahmaru, "we'll talk about that later ok??? Now we gotta split!!!"

[CLASH] [SLASH]

Kazuki helps her out. They're all fighting. But they're outnumbered...

Galford : "OH SHIT..!! THEY KEEP COMING!!!" freaks Galford

[SLASH]

Hanzo : "I can't hold them on much longer.." said Hanzo, as he slashed and killed another soldier......

Rimururu "TAKE THAT..!!!!" shouts Rimururu, attacking with her katana....

Another soldier appears behind her, and attacks..!!

Galford : "RIMURURU..!!! LOOK OUT!!! BEHIND YOU!!!" Shouts Galford

Rimururu : "...........!!!!" Rimururu turns around, "[GASPS]"

 

 

 

...It's too late..

 

 

 

 

[CLASH] [SLASH]

The soldier collapse to the ground......dead.....

It's Shizumaru..!!

Rimururu : "SHIZUMARU..!!!!! YOU CAME BACK..!!" smiles Rimururu, very surprised to see him.

Galford : "HEY WE MISS YOU BUDDY!!!!" smiles Galford

Shizumaru : "....I just want to get this over with." said Shizu, "...and I'm NOT your buddy."

Hoahmaru : "CAN WE FINISH THIS CHAT LATER?? LET'S GET OUTTA HERE..!!!" Shouts Hoahmaru, trying to protect Charlotte.....

 

Shogun : "No one is leaving......."

[FORT GATE CLOSES]

 

Hoahmaru : "DAMN!!!!"

Shogun stands there, in their way................

Shogun : "The only way you can get out alive is a duel between ME AND THE DEMON."

Kazuki : "..the demon???" blinks Kazuki..

Shizumaru : "Ok, Shogun. I accept your challenge." said Shizu, and steps out.....

Kazuki : "???!!" Kazuki is even more confused........

Jubei : "SHOGUN!!!! STOP THIS RIGHT NOW!!" Shouts Jubei, and ready to fight...

Shogun: "Mr.Jubei, this has NOTHING to do with your Lord or you. You have no rights to fight me without your Lord's command."

Shogun : "You DO want to keep your sworn oath of loyalty to your Lord, don't you?"

Jubei : "......" Jubei is pissed off...

Shizumaru : "LEAVE THEM ALONE." said Shizu, "you want to fight me? You got me. Let's do it...."

Shogun and Shizu stands there, ready to fight. Rimururu and the others stand aside and watch them...

Shogun : "I see you survived my Demon Scar attack..." grins Shogun

Shizumaru : "And so did you."

Shogun : "You may be lucky to survive my attack last time..but it won't be a next time."

Shogun : "...that scar must be horrible for you..isn't it? It totally changed your life.."

Shizumaru : "SHUT UP!!!!"

Shogun : "The only way for you and your friends to get out alive is ONE OF US DEAD.." said Shogun, "AND THE GOOD GUYS ALWAYS WINS OVER EVIL DEMONS...."

Shizumaru : "...." Shizu didn't say anything......

Shogun : "YAAAAAAAAAAHHH..!!!!!"

Shogun attacks..!!!

But missed....

 

Shizu attacks.... but missed too.

 

[CLASH] [SHING]

They continue to fight. Neither of them are hurt......YET.


Shogun : "DEMON SCAR" whispers Shogun, ready for his special attack....

Shizumaru : "KONGETSUZAN......"

Shizu runs toward him....ready to perform his special attack

(?????????) : "STOP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" shouts a girl voice.

 

It's Akane. She stands between Shogun and Shizu...!!!!


Shizumaru : "AKANE!!!!!!!!!" gasps Shizu, quickly stops..!! His sword almost hits her..!!

Shogun : "[GASPS]" Shogun stops... His sword almost hits her too...!!

Shogun backs off.....

They stop fighting....

 

Shizumaru : "AKANE..!! What're you doing here???!! I...I ALMOST HIT YOU..!!!!" Freaks Shizu

Jubei : "I TOLD YOU STAY HOME..!!! HOW DARE YOU DISOBEY YOUR FATHER!!!" shouts Jubei..

 

Akane : ".....Gomen, father." whispers Akane, "BUT I HAVE TO COME!!! They will kill each other if I don't....."

Shogun : "Akane....." whispers Shogun, very surprised to see her....

Shizumaru : "BUT...BUT WE'RE IN A MIDDLE OF A FIGHT!!!" Freaks Shizu, "YOU JUST..!!! DAMN!!!"

Akane : "......" Akane is sad, "I'm sorry. But I don't want you two to kill each other..."

Shogun : "Akane..." whispers Shogun, "...is that you?"

She turns to him......

Akane : "Yes...Shogun.."

Shogun is speechless. He didn't know what to say. He found her. At last. And she's even more beautiful than he remembered. And he can't believe he almost killed his love.....

Kazuki : "Ok, I'm confused now." said Kazuki, scratching his head.......

Kazuki : "SHIZUMARU...AKANE....SHOGUN.... THEY ALL KNOW EACH OTHER??!!"

Rimururu : "........" Rimururu is a bit sad..

Akane : "Please...Shogun...Shizumaru....please stop fighting.." whispers Akane, "It doesn't have to end this way, does it..?"

Shogun : "I'm sorry. But I must kill him."

Akane : "..Isn't there any other way without ending someone getting hurt?" cries Akane....

Akane : "PLEASE...SHOGUN...'"

Shizumaru is surprised how Akane is so sad just to stop this fight. It's a samurai destiny to fight, and to die in a battle. That's the way it is. Of course people get hurt. That's a warrior's honor...to fight to the death.

Shogun : "...well......" whispers Shogun, "there is ANOTHER WAY..."

Akane : "???"

Shogun : "I will let them go..."

"Ok...."


Shogun : "ONLY IF AKANE BECOMES MY WIFE."

 

"WHAT??!!!!!" freaks everyone

Akane : ".............."

Akane is surprised.............

Akane : " (sighs)...for Shizu's sake........"

Akane : "Ok. Deal."

Shizumaru : "BUT AKANE..!!!! You can't be serious..!!!" Freaks Shizu, "you..you can't marry him!!! that's....ridiculous!!!"

Akane : "I have decided. I will marry Shogun." nods Akane

Shizumaru : "BUT...BUT..!!!" Freaks Shizu, "AKANE..!!!! DON'T..!!!!"

Akane : "I'm sorry, Shizumaru.." whispers Akane

Shogun : "Alright. It's settled then." smiles Shogun, and puts his sword away.........

 

[FORT GATE OPENS]

Shogun : "You all can leave...except for Akane. She will remain here until tonight...the wedding will be held tonight at the Sage's Shrine."

Shizumaru : "....But..!!" freaks Shizu

Hoahmaru : "We'll be here tonight.............c'mon, kid. Let's go back.."

Shizumaru : "........" Shizu is pissed off, then he joins the others and head back.....
