Adventure Drama

After Adaline and Zack went through the book they found themselves in a dark room.

“What- where are we?” Zack looked changed from awe to disgust, “I pictured it differently. Is this where Ethan has the pen?” Adaline smiled, “Welcome to my mind of dreams. This is from the Saw movies. You did watch the movie list I sent you, right?” Zack shook his head, “I haven’t got to that yet and I vow right now to when we get back,” he said as he tried to step forward. Adaline stopped him, “We are now victims in a Jigsaw game,” she said with a smile, “Now, do you want to break your foot or cut it off?” Zack looked from Adaline to the chain on his foot, “I thought we were trying to stop Ethan.”

“We are. We’re just in the wrong dream,” Adaline said as a door appeared in the middle of the dark gray room, “Now, let’s go find what we are looking for.” Adaline walked over to a disgusting stained bathtub that was in the corner and pulled out a pair of keys. Zack gagged as she reached down and unchained herself then walked over to him. Once unchained, they walked through the door that led to the next dream... 

Zack and Adaline walked right into the middle of a bloody war, “DUCK!” Adaline grad Zack be the arm and pulled him down to the ground as a spear flew by, “Where the heck are we now? WW3?” Zack said trying not to eat the dirt. Adaline peeked her head over the mud mound, “You do remember that seven deadly sins story with the Japanese ghosts and demons that I was working on, right?” Zack nodded. “Well, this is it. I never finished it though,” she said as the story told itself; The battle of a world filled with hate and darkness had the golden ashes of a small town in Europe. The dawn made the bloodstained soil look like a sea of red. The mother, about to give birth to a child, falls to her knees and weeps for the loss of her lover and the father of her child. The thought of him dying without knowing of his only child brought more pain to this woman.

The child within her will be the angel of light in the company of darkness. The mother, in pain and about to give birth, looked up to see seven demons rise up from the blood-soaked earth. The demons took male forms in battle armor of the Underworld. This puzzled the mother because demons have an evil dark matter that can be felt by anyone, but these demons have a warm gentle force.

The demons looked around the landscape of death, then one pointed at her and the others looked to see the mother in pain. The seven rushed over to her. The closest one took her by the hand and spoke in a language that she didn’t understand. The others said something to him then he nodded, and then he started to speak in her language.

“Are you alright,” said the demon. “I am with child and afraid of losing my baby after just losing the father and my village,” said the mother. She locked eyes with him, now noticing the demon’s face. His eyes had a fiery red tint of one that moved for hate but yet his face showed kindness. There was a scar over his left eye… then the woman cried out...

He held the baby close to his chest. His team stood around the open grave of the woman. She made sure that death would not claim her daughter that day, she took the ultimate risk for love. That is the reason why he is called Wrath...

Zack looked from the Sins to Adaline, “What are we doing here?” Adaline smiled, “This where we get help. Come on, let’s go.” ... 

Adaline explained on the way to the high school in that world, “ You and I are people in this with different names and backstories. Listen to the story,”...

At the front building, a flood of teenagers making our way to the buses. In the background, there are two shadows watching me and my fellow teens try to leave in the madness, but I didn’t know that they were there. Among the teens were the other 8 悪魔 “Akuma or demon” following me and then stopped to feel a new force closening. The two that stayed back found the Sin named, Lust who was trying to pick me up with a black SUV that had a dent in the front and a little black cat on the dash broad (of course he went with his animal, the (黒猫) Kuro Neko). The ten demons knew what they were going to do next.

Zack put his hands up, “Wait a moment. Who is Anna-chan? And where is the voice coming from?” Adaline sighed, “Anna was the baby from the battle we just saw. Time is funny here. And the voice is just there, okay? So just listen.” ... 

Anna continued to go on about how the next part of her day was crazy. I know what you’re thinking, “Anna-Chan is crazy! Your dad can’t really fly”. But I assure you he was flying and I’ll get to that part soon.

I was just about to get on the bus when my dad called out, “Oh, Anna-Chan! I just asked your father, Hebi,(meaning snake) if I could take you home.” Just as he said this, there was screaming behind me. I turned to see ten black monsters picking up kids and throwing them into trees, brushes, (if you were lucky), and the ground. The ten were moving towards me, pushing anyone and everyone out of the way. My mind is telling me to get moving but my legs are so useless at the moment. In the corner of my eye, I can see my dad saying something that I couldn’t make out. Just when I thought it couldn't get any crazier, I see my dad, who doesn’t have black feathered wings, get wings and a sword the size of a baseball bat! 


Adaline spoke softly so the story can continue, “That is Lust the snake sin, but I will speed things up,” she said as she wrote in the dirt.


Lust flew up to the leader and spoke in demon tongue, “Why is your kind here, for there is no death to be bought upon these (死すべき) Shih Subeki (it means mortals)?”

“Your betrayal (裏切り or Uragiri) to Mother made Hell look like the Demon Games of 15A.D!”

“Like it was our fault that you guys were born a full demon.”


The Sins were both sons of Omi Goddess, the Queen of the Underworld and the daughter of Satan, and the Hachiman, the god of war and the divine protector of Japan and its people. This made them only half-demon. Unlike the Ten Comments, born of the same mother, but also children of Shinigami (死神, "god of death" or "death spirit"), they are full demon and cause death in the world. This caused the Ten Comments great pain because some demons help mortals fight demons in order to have (潜在的な) Senzai-tekina meaning potential depending on the class of demon you are. The Comments are in this class, but they can’t be like oni that have lost some of their original wickedness and sometimes take on a more protective function. 

Now Lust tells the story...

The Commandant looked at Lust, “We found more of your secrets like the girl, and the orphan.” I could feel the rage within me grow. I pushed it down while I spoke, “Why would you try to hurt either of them?”. The Commandant sighed, “Guess you haven’t heard yet because you haven’t seen her in so long. She and her team of exorcists went into the Underworld and killed Satan. The fight was so long it took them 3 years to kill the old devil, and he put up a grand fight, one that should be history! Satan took her eye in the beginning and captured her team. The only people who escaped were her and two of the guys, one being her best friend. Before Satan’s final breath, she said, “An eye for an eye,!”, then she cut out his eye and now it’s in her skull ‘til death.” I am in shock but then again this is what Daitan was talking about. Her name literally meant daring; bold one. And her personality, oh boy. But Daitan had rare and unusual beauty and can be tender but also she can be a pain. I looked at the Commandant, “Why are your kind here? If you seek vengeance for your lord, you came to the wrong place, for Daitan isn’t in Kyoto.” The Commandant smiled, “We know you and your brothers can find the girl if it would save your orphan daughter,” just as he said this I heard Anna-Chan scream. I turned around to see a Commandant picking up Anna-chan from the ground like she was a piece of fruit. And just like they had appeared, they had vanished like they were never there. 

Zacks eyes widened, “Are you Daitan in this world?” Adaline nodded, “Yup, now come on.”... 

Now that Zack and Adaline have found Daitan, they listen to her story...

The sounds of people, demons, and booby-traps filled the air. The smells of wildlife, blood from the demons, and the flames from the torch in my best friend’s, named Yoshi, hand, met my nose. In the distance, I could see the forest battleground, the rocky cliffs and caves, and the open battlefield.   


I was the demon ball pit, for those who don’t know what that is, it’s like gaga ball but the ball is Bakeneko – A shape-shifting cat. And the rules are the same, but there is a catch, if you try to hit the ball the Bakeneko will try to bite your hand so you have unlimited time to hit the ball. There are booby traps and other demons in the pit. Now, the pit is about the size of a football field wide and the size of the school building. You could fight or befriend demons that you encounter in the pit. You could be solo or with your squad. 


I was the leader of the Northern team. I only just got the title a year ago, because the guys( I am the only girl on the team, but the girls are mean to me or afraid of me because of the eye) voted for me. Oh, crap, I forgot to introduce myself. I am Daitan Osna.

Yoshi (Zack’s alternate self in this world) pulled out one of his demon cards and a Gashadokuro – A giant skeleton that is the spirit of the unburied dead. Also known as Gaikotsu appeared. Yoshi and I started for the trees for cover. The Gashadokuro covered our backs as we made our way to the trees. I started up a tree when Eichi, the team’s medic and the one who sewn my eye shut before I took Satan’s eye, came running straight for us. 


Okay, you know when something is wrong when your teammate is running towards you because you have Satan’s eye. Yeah, that’s when I jumped down from the tree and just in time to see Hachishaku-sama – a woman that is 8 feet tall and famous for kidnapping children, coming right for us. “That’s not one of the booby-traps,” Yoshi called out in his British accent. (He is Japanese but his family moved to London and then moved back in 8th grade) “RUN!” I scream to the others, and just so guys know I’m running towards Hachishaku for a few reasons. One- I have a demon’s eye, two- I will not let my team down, and three- I hate Hachishaku. 


I saw her stop before I could stop, that’s right, I ran right into her calf. That’s when the smell of rotting flesh. I looked at Hachishaku and there is dry blood and a wound that looked like could have been that a jet crashed into her. That should have killed her on the spot. Then, what I saw next made me even more shocked. I saw myself hiding behind a rock. While these questions were going around my mind, something zoomed past my head. I turned around to find the guys with their gear. Now, this looks like a group of teenagers in war armor with demons, swords, and floating Hannyas – noh masks representing jealous female demons. And the thing that nearly chopped my head off was one of Yoshi’s dang Ki Chibi – fireballs with human faces inside.  


I dove out of the way of incoming Mekurabe – The multiplying skulls, arrows, and Noppera-bōs – faceless ghosts. A friend of mine named Krystal came up to me with her Tanuki – a shape-shifting raccoon dog named Riku. “Daitan, how do you think she got here?” “A better question is, ‘How the heck is she dead and still moving?” She looked like I had just spoken in French. I pulled Krystal down just as Hachishaku came crashing down. The ground shook and dust flew up into my eyes. Krystal and I started to get when something jumped out and pinned me down to the dirt. I turned to the guys, who still had weapons, and nodded... 

Adaline turned to Zack, “Do you think she saw me?” As soon as Adaline asked Daitan graded her, “Yes, I did see you.” ...
