Kaji wrapped her arms around Yang comforting him "It's going to be okay, just don't worrya bout it okay? I'm sorry I shouldn't have yelled at you, or called you those names, and thank you. I mean, if you hadn't fought him we would probably not be here right now..."* She smiled at him "So, Thank You Yang, for being there."
"So yes... I've been leading your pathetic village all of these years. And now that the second Day of Black Snow is in progress, I'll test the true limits of Project Infinity's power, and then we'll takeover Nevermore... completely!" Zero-Zero said, kicking Lance away, along with Tara.
Lance coughed a bit, quickly regaining consciousness. "...no." he struggled to say, looking at Zero-Zero with the craving to kill him. "It won't end like this..." he continued, managing to at least get on his knees, but unable to do anything for Tara.
"You're right... it won't!" Appearing behind Zero-Zero, Zone shoved his sword right through his chest, impaling him in the heart. In the end, Zero-Zero fell forward, seemingly-dead. "He's not out..." the apparently former-Zero-Two explained, picking Zero-Zero up with his arm; still holding Poison with his other. "...his powers are the most advanced out of all of ours. He's truly immortal, the only one of Project Infinity who can't die." he said, walking past Lance and Tara, towards the exit. "Project Infinity is wrong. I hope that after today, it will collapse... but even I know that's impossible. So don't worry about a thing... while this guy is knocked out, I'll have the troops retreat, and have us all return to Nevermore."
"But..." Lance glared at Zone, in disbelief. "...why?"
"...because Project Infinity must fall." With those last words, Zone disappeared, leaving the room in silence.
Throughout the village, even though the Black Snow soldiers were losing the battle immensely, Zone represented for Zero-Zero, calling every last Project Infinity soldier back to Nevermore. In the very end, the second Day of Black Snow was over, and the results were the same; the Black Snow's enemy could have won, but the war had to live on.
"You are welcome.." Yang said awkwardly, knowing that he was blushing, so he just looked away.. even though that didn't hide anything. While looking away he caught a glimpse out of the window "... It seems everything is calming down!" He exclaimed, as his mood started being more positive again.
Tara, rather confused about everything, helped Lance up. "It's over...! For now at least..." She said, smiling a bit while the two were walking out. At the exit there was someone awaiting them-Kimiko. In an incredibly bad condition as well. She was leaning on a tree, soaked in blood, breathing heavily... Yet a smile spread on her face. "So you guys succeeded.. In a way..." She said in a half whisper, looking at Lance.
"Kimiko?" Lance wondered out loud, looking at her. "Kimiko, you're hurt!" he said. For some reason, he really cared for her at the moment. Maybe it was because she proved where her loyalty lied, or anything else. Since Lance was hardly even harmed at all, though, he rushed over to her, scanning her body. "Wonder woman... what happened?"
"A lot... All that matters is that she is gone. For good. The witch that killed your father." Kimiko said, as her smile slowly faded from all the pain. "Thank you.. for giving me a second chance. It has been a pleasure working with you, Hope." She said, lending out a hand to shake with Lance. Her grip was very weak since she couldn't even gather that much energy. After shaking hands, she just let her arm fall down, and took a deep breath before pushing herself from the tree. "Goodbye now. I wish all the best to each one of you... and take care of my brother, please" With that, Kimiko turned away and in a moment turned into a normal sized white hawk, flying away.. But she stopped at the top of a hill nearby, turning back to her human form. She stood on the very top of the hill where they could clearly see her. She looked back at them, smiling for the last time. Strong wind started to blow, and once it reached Kimiko, just as if she was light as a feather, she fell down to the other side of the hill, disappearing from their sight.
Tara stared ahead, at the hill, wiping her eyes with her palms. She just walked over to Lance, leaning on him "We need to check up on Kaji." She whispered to him.
On the other side of the hill, Kimiko was lying in the white snow, lifeless. Yet she wasn't alone. A female was approaching her. She was wearing a cloak, so the identity was not clear. Although... she had a lance in her right hand. The young woman stopped by Kimiko, soon picking her up and throwing her over her shoulder. Walking off in a completely mysterious direction while dragging the lance along the snow leaving a trail behind, both were soon out of sight, fading into the forest.
Lance, or, Hope, watched Kimiko leave, in sorrow. "...I guess you can say that the war is on pause, for now." he said, turning his body around so that he could get a good look at Tara. It was almost like an achievement, how he could remain so stable, after everything that had just happened. "Well... we'll probably be rebuilding The Village of Black Snow for quite a while. Not to mention that we're going to need a new Village Leader..." The boy knew that what he was saying was true, but while he was talking to her, his mind was clogged up with only one thing. "...Tara," he said.
"...first-of-all, what happened in that room, stays in that room." he said, smiling for the moment. "And second..." You couldn't really say it was random, but Lance kissed Tara. For real, this time. And for once, he didn't need hope, to know that it would be long, and unforgettable.
Personality: Laid back, but becomes serious during a battle.
Strengths: Amazing swordsman (Orochi style).
Weapons: Marusama blade/Hilt
Info: The Marusama is his families’ most protected relic andhis families’ Orochi style totally revolves around the sword. The length andwidth are key; anything else would be slightly off. His family trains theirchildren from the age of three until the age of twenty five, but he got out of itdue to his learning faster than past generations. The second he didn’t have totrain anymore he took a nap. He was isolated for most of his life so he doesn’tunderstand much. *
(But without the scar and his sword faces the right way)
(Hey guys~* well needless to say, I'm pretty clueless to the plot apart from the main story in the very first post..but don't mind me, I shall try my best to catch up ^^ )
Personality: Straight-forward, caring, stubborn (at times), loyal, and a bit of a hot-head.
Strength: Akira's fighting style is basically long-ranged since she has not much experience whatsoever on hand-to-hand combat. She is more of a strategist than a brawler, which means she's a quick thinker and plans things through thoroughly before acting.
Weapon: A long metal chain strapped around her waist with poisonous blades on both ends.
Information: After her parents' death on the Second Day of Black Snow, Akira fled from the village out of shock, sorrow, and bitterness. She had spent the few years alone, training hard to prove that she's actually worth something..since she hated herself for running away like a real coward. In other words, regret had overwhelmed her recently-*as she found herself making her way back to the village she once called home.
