Yoshikuni-sama…

Wednesday, April 18th, 2007

sesshomaru-sama.jpgUpon pursuing further studies in Advance Sorcery and Enchantments, the 7th Child had reached a near level of perfection. in her first year of merciless training, she met a gifted young healer named Yoshikuni Akito.

The first day they met was on a rainy afternoon. Hitori was running to her teacher’s place for her final exams. She was late, because she had waited too long for the rain to stop. Upon reaching a corner, she lost her footing and slipped on the wet pavement.

She braced her the inevitable impact, but it never came. Instead, she found herself leaning on someone who caught her before she fell. That was Akito-sama.

They did not introduce each other that day as both were in a hurry to catch their teachers on time. But as the days went buy, they found each other once again in the Collection of Written Knowledge. Akito was the one who first found out about Hitori’s name through some acquaintances, and began talking to her, meeting her whenever their schedules permit.

It was unfortunate that Akito had to pursue his quests in a different land. That was when they said good-bye and would not meet again for the next 5 years. Hitori does not regret letting him go, and neither does Akito. He married a Princess from the lands of his quest and visits Hitori whenever he is back in the land where they first met.

Masahiro’s Memory…

Monday, March 26th, 2007

There was one particular moment in the 7th Child’s like that made her thankful she met Masahiro-sempai…

It was during the time when a competition between Higher Accademics Schools tested the speed of other students.

It was in this competition that the 7th Child exceeded beyond the expectations of her peers and seniors.

The 7th Child was ridiculed as she asked to attempt the farthest run in the competition rather than the fastest… To her, it took more strength and determination to finish further and it was to finish faster.

Though even her professors discouraged her, Masahiro-sempai cheered her on. He encouraged her when they were alone and trained her secretly when no one was around.

On the day of the competition, the 7th child took her place. For a first time competitor, she was nervous. But she ran as much as she could… She continued on the impossible path no one dared to travel, and out of the 16 girls who competed, only half were able to finish, and Hitori was one of them.

It was quite unfortunate that the 7th Child lost consciousness by the time she reached the end of her task. She did not know that Masahiro was right beside her and caught her before she hit the ground. Hitori only regained consciousness a good few minutes later, realizing she had lost the competition by only a few miliseconds…

She was in pain, she was hurt, and she cried… She didn’t realize that Masahiro was still carrying her as she cried. Masahiro merely smiled, and took her away from the crowd. He sat under a tree, still craddling her in his arms and held her tightly as she cried, furious that she couldn’t prove herself to her peers, to her superiors and to her professors…

To that, he hugged her more tightly and whispered, “You’ve proven yourself to me… You are the only one from our school who was able to finish that task… You are worthy… So don’t cry anymore…

“And to me… You are priceless…”

Masahiro-sempai…

Wednesday, February 7th, 2007

Amidst nearing graduation from the Magician’s Academics to lead up to the Higher Levels, the 7th Child encountered someone she holds dear… He was from the Orient, and at first was made fun of by other people because of his poor Language Skills; until he adapted to his new environment and became one of the most sought after wizards in their school…

He was Hara Masahiro… a gentle young man with a love for all things. To the 7th Child, he was the first to openly claim of his religion, not fearing prosecution and ridicule. It was the first time the 7th Child found one of the attributes she wanted in the person she will choose to truly love…

But was this love? Hitori had no way to compete with her rivals, who were plentiful… As much as Masahiro-sempai gave her some of his attention as gratitude for staying by his side when he was excluded, it was not something Hitori could bear with.

Everyone loves Masahiro, and Masahiro loved to be loved… Although he was a man who would love only one girl forever, now was not that time. He did not want to part with the attention he began recieving.

For a time, Hitori and Masahiro were always together. But even that had to stop. One of Hitori’s friends had also fallen in love with Masahiro, and Hitori could not bear hurting her friend. Understandably, this friend was not close to Hitori, and that’s the reason why she doesn’t know of Hitori’s love for Masahiro as well…

The Higher Levels of Magic were cruel to Hitori. Most students would not like to have anything to do with her, and so Masahiro could not be with her openly. “What would a powerful wizard want to have anything to do with a lowly commoner?” the people asked.

That was the last straw.

Hitori then decided to never go near Masahiro-sempai again… She wonders sometimes if Masahiro remembers her… But that is far from realitly…
