History

Shigure Kyosuke (Kyo-san to his friends) knows nothing about his past up until 5 years ago. Amnesia is not the wonderful thing it could be if you wake with nightmares every night of the evil things that someone with your face has done when your heart denies what you really are.

How can I decide what’s right?
When you’re clouding up my mind
I can’t win your losing fight
All the time

Nor could I ever own what’s mine
When you’re always taking sides
But you won’t take away my pride
No, not this time

How did we get here,
When I used to know you so well?
How did we get here?
I think I know.

The truth is hiding in your eyes
And it’s hanging on your tongue
Just boiling in my blood
But you think that I can’t see

What kind of man that you are
If you’re a man at all
Well, I figure this one out
On my own

(I’m screaming, I love you so)
On my own
(But my thoughts you can’t decode)

How did we get here,
When I used to know you so well?
How did we get here?
I think I know.

Do you see what we’ve done?
We’ve gone and made such fools of ourselves
Do you see what we’ve done
We’ve gone and made such fools of ourselves

How did we get here,
When I used to know you so well?
How did we get here,
When I used to know you so well?

I think I know
I think I know
There is something I see in you
It might kill me, I want it to be true

So begins...

He shuffled his feet trying to kick up dust as he approached a building that seemed to be some kind of tavern. After his red eyes took in the sight he decided that a drink would be just what he needed and went for the door. Kyosuke pushed it open wild-west style. He waited in the doorway for a moment in order to take in the crowd then sucked his pearly whites and made his way to a less cramped corner of the bar and waited to be served.

He noticed a cute little lady not far from where he sat who had served herself and figured it would be better to try and fail then never have given himself a chance to look like a idoit so he vaulted over the bar and grabbed a beer. Kyosuke opened the bottle and drank a bit before taking a few steps over to the pretty little thing with blue hair in an over-sized sweater. He put his forearms on the bar in front of her and lowered his burgundy eyes to her. Another long draught before he spoke. "Want something other than water while I'm back here?" A confident smile pressed itself acrossed his lips.

The confident smile was instantly removed as he was ignored. Well there it is. Tried and failed and on the wrong side of the bar looking like an idiot he smirked and bounced back over the bar. This was nothing new. He wondered for the past few years if he was turning invisible. He felt invisible sometimes and reality was he would most likely not speak to another person for the rest of the evening. He wasn't very outgoing but he tried to fight his nature. He settled down on his bar stool and nursed his pilfered beer as his normal look of complete emptiness returned to his falsely vibrant features.

Kyosuke kicked at the ground with the toe of his black utility boots. He sighed hard as if his enitre body deflated and turned his back to the bar to lean and watch all the happy people having happy conversations. He drank a bit more from his bottle and spoke quietly to himself. "All this bullshit is for the birds." Another hard sigh followed another long draught and always those red eyes watching, wanting and hoping.

Kyosuke felt that old fimilar pain in his shoulder and pushed his shirt over at the collar. His stiches had broken open and he was bleeding. That was what he deserved jumping over the bar like that to try and impress some stupid girl who didn't even notice he had spoken to her. He gulped down his beer and cracked his neck hard. Why did he even give a shit. There was nothing here for him. There was nothing anywhere for him. He'd heard people in the past play around with the word curse but he knew what it really was to be cursed. To cry out in the night and only have your echoed voice as a response. He stood up and tried to decide if he should stay or slink away back into the silence of the night.

He cleared his throat and sized up the two strangers before him. The woman seemed upset. "No problem. She alright?" He was strong and tough and pain even at mind bending levels had never really bother him so a bump from a tiny little lady didn't bother him. He focused his red eyes back on [b]The Golden Gloves[b]and smiled tilting his head. "You alright little lady?"

It was strange for him to touch other people so the feeling of her rested upon his skin. It was a bit more than he could take. After all, it had been almost three years since he had physically held a woman but when the lovely woman before him began to cry his heart cracked in half and something odd came over him. Before he realized what he was doing he had embraced the poor sad Golden and squeezed causing his shoulder to bleed heavily down his side. He whispered softly before realizing himself and removing his grip. "I understand. Life is bleak and people are heartless but every now and then you find something or someone that makes living worth while." He blushed deeply and took a few steps backward before bumping the bar. He couldn't retreat any more. Shit, way to go Kyo. He felt like a total idiot and his redy eyes wide as the oceans floor never left the ground. Way to make an impression. Damn he felt like an asshole.

He was breathing hard and had forgotten all about his shoulder until he heard Golden say he was bleeding. He nodded his head to her softly his eyes still focused intently on the ground. At this point he could see the cut of the wood in the damn floor boards. He hadn't wanted to do what he just did and felt beyond akward. A soft sorry squeacked from his lips as he thought about bolting for the door. He should have left when he had the chance. What the hell was he going to do? He had violated the space of a lady something he swore he would never do but she had just looked so sad and hopeless and he knew what that feeling was. He knew what it was to be without a true life and knew how heart breakingly desperate he'd been lately to find someone, anyone, to share his time with. He was shaking and couldn't stop.

His eyes remained on the floor and he began to wonder why this beautiful woman would be interested in him at all. He cleared his throat again and raised his red eyes to her lovely face with a soft smile he spoke. "Old injury. Nothing you did. I apologize for touching you. I should never have done that. It was rude." He smiled brightly and lifted onto his tip toes while placing his hand on the back of his head with a soft laugh. "We should have had a better first meeting. You're really beautiful." He blushed deeply and moved to the side then walked backward for the door. He spoke over the crowd as he retreated. "I hope we meet again though beauifully sad lady. I'm Kyosuke and...um...bye..." He bolted for the door and was gone before she had a chance to reply to his akward fumblings.

Kyo-san found himself in yet another strange place unsure of his surroundings. He saw a man sitting in the distance and approached him swiftly. He didn't speak to others much but he needed to know where he was and so he quickly blurted out words that ran together like a overly hyper childs. "Um hey where am I right now?"

Kyosuke noticed the drawing of the woman right away and smiled as he stared. "That woman looks like a friend of mine." He felt the all to normal pain in his shoulder. The wound that would never heal had been bleeding and the blood was running down his arm. "Is it of someone you know?"

The pain in his heart grew the longer he looked at the drawing that looked so very much like Ardeth. It had been far to long since he had her in his arms and it drained him just thinking of her. He pulled his amber eyes away and looked at the lovely boy before him. So concerned, but it was for no real reason. "No need. It's an old injury. It will stop bleeding soon." In his head the thought of Ardeth sealing it with her vampire blood made he secretly smile. "Funny. She looks like the woman I love as well."

Ardeth's name echoed in his head for a minute and he felt sick. His mouth crumpled into a noticable frown. "D-did you say Ardeth?" He felt the bile churning in his guts. "You did. You said 'my Ardeth'." His fists clenched along with his teeth and his entire body shook. "What are the odds that there are 2 women who look alike and have the same name?" This boy said his Ardeth. No! Kyosukes Ardeth!

Kyosuke had lowered his gaze on the boy and his true nature began to reveal itself as he growled low and twisted his head to an unnatural angle. "Her name is Ardeth di Crea. She is a 400 years old half vampire and loves many and none at the same time. She is cold and calculating and trusts no one but he guardian Mohan Rahma." The wound on his shoulder was growing as his rage was building.

As the boy stepped back Kyo-san stepped forward. "I know so much because she is my lover. I know because Mohan is my friend and they saved my life." His shoulder throbbed with his pulse and more and more blood ran from the wound. He felt a bit light headed and his skin burned.

His shoulder was getting worse but that wasn't any kind of concern to him now. "You must be the one she talked about sometimes when Mohan wasn't around. It's funny really. She once called you something special. Pure was her word." His amber eyes narrowed on the boy. "You don't look special to me." And there was the true Kyosuke. As soon as the words came out of his mouth he regretted it but it was arleady said. He did care for Ardeth but this boy obviously loved her and it pissed him off.

Kyo-san dropped his shoulders and laughed lowly. "You really think she would. You were the innocence she longed to reclaim and I am the deviance she craves. I bet she never took you with her when she got hungry did she. And I'm sure you never noticed that anytime you took her she feed off you. For her sex and food go hand in hand." He shook his head. This was going nowhere. Kyosuke turned his back on the kid and took a few long strides away.

Kyo-kun heard the boy asking that troubling question and smirked. He called back over his shoulder and he dug in his cargos for his smokes and zippo. "She uses all of us kid. It's her nature. I'm sure she loves you though. She can be funny like that. Just when you thing you finally got her she turns into something new." The last part he said aloud but mostly to himself. He lit the cigarette he'd put in his mouth with the zippo and inhaled long and deep. As he let the smoke pour from his lips he spoke again. "but what else is a woman other then heartache and a mind fuck."

Kyosukes laughter broke the quiet night with force. "Holy Mary! You really are pure aren't you. You see the things is people can take many lovers even if they only love one person. Ardeth has things she needs. Things only I can provide. It's nothing personal but until the end of her or me she will always be coming back for more. She will love you and be honest with you to a point but when it comes to me," His laughter was gone and honesty was all the remained in his voice. "she will never be able to stop."

The Hidden Glen was peaceful and quiet. It was near the midnight hour and the moon was full, its bright white haze illuminating the otherwise dark forest. The moon seemed massive as it hung in the night sky, its large round form being mirrored and reflected off the surface of completely calm, still black waters. Being farther out away from the nearest cities, away from all the dust and light pollution, here the stars twinkled and shined ever so brightly like tiny little blue shimmering diamonds in the sky. There were no clouds to be seen, and peering up from the large clearing in the trees, this was the perfect time and place to go stargazing. Although it was very late, the moonlight made it somewhat more possible to see in the dark by casting a dark blue silhouette over the forest, making the treeline more visible for anyone who might not have a lamp to see. Of course, many nocturnal critters happened to be active in the forest at this time, and occasionally their eyes would reflect the moonlight also which caused their eyes to glow in the dark. Raccoons, foxes, possums, deer and other creatures roamed around quietly at night as green lightning bugs hovered around and flickered magically in the dark with the serene and natural sounds of croaking frogs and toads, and chirping crickets.

The Hidden Glen seemed like the perfect place to go camping as a single shooting star fell over the night sky, adding a more surreal view to the already peaceful and dreamy setting. But the dark forest, despite its appearance and stillness, was a place that never truly slept, as many animals were just now starting to hunt. From tiny black ants to hungry fish, winged bats and grub eating hogs, the forest may have seemed quiet, but it was actually teaming with life. If someone was quiet and still for long enough, they might even be able to hear cracking sticks and swaying branches moving in the dark forest from the many stealthy animals that passed through the area on a regular basis. There were snakes slithering about in search of nesting birds, which had settled in for the night. A wood turtle was drifting afloat in the middle of a large pond, as water beetles waded along the surface, causing little V-shaped ripples in the water. A spider was busy spinning its web between two trees, and the dew which had collected on its silky strings began to shine in the moonlight. A wolf's long-winded howl could be heard in the far distance, followed by what sounded like a great horned owl as it called out to other owls using a series of hoots.

Despite its tranquility and peacefulness, The Hidden Glen was a very dangerous place for the unwary and unprepared. Bears and panthers or wildcats lived in the forest, along with coyotes, large alligators and other predators. While most of these animals were very skittish and usually afraid of humans, incidents have been known to happen, and it wasn't uncommon for tragic deaths to occur in the woods, especially at night during a full-sized moon like tonight. Everything was on guard in the dark forest. That is, everything except for a single large egg which suddenly fell from the sky, as if it had been dropped from the air by a large night bird, slipping from its talons in mid-flight or perhaps dropped on purpose due to its weight. The large egg fell through the trees, bouncing and rolling over several branches as it tumbled to the ground. The egg rolled along the grassy leafbed before hitting the trunk of a huge willow tree and coming to a dead stop, nestled within its thick winding roots among the foliage. Miraculously, the egg didn't even crack or break, and apart from three parallel scratches along its surface caused by the talons of whatever had dropped it, the egg appeared to be unscathed.

As the moonlight hit the egg's surface, it quickly became apparent that this was no ordinary egg. The most noticeable thing about it was its size. The egg, although having a typical oblong round shape like most common birds and reptiles, was about the same size as a 60 gallon wine barrel and weighed nearly 600 pounds. It had a very thick, dark grey plated surface covered in diamond-shaped rocky scales which overlapped similar to fishes scales and helped it to blend in with the rocks and foliage. An egg which had scales, now that wasn't something associated with most reptiles and birds, especially among the species which lived in the surrounding forest. This could only mean one thing. The egg must have come from somewhere else. But from where? And how did it get here? Was it still alive? And if so, what kind of embryo was it carrying inside? Was it a bird, a snake, or maybe a large crocodile? Could it even be a fish of some kind? Or perhaps the creature that dropped it did so after realizing that it wasn't an egg at all, but just a very large rock. Only, if that were the case, then it certainly did look like an egg of some kind. Rocks don't usually look egg-shaped or have thick scaley armor around them. Nope. This was almost certainly a dragon egg. But where did it come from? And what kind of dragon laid it? With nobody around to hear it fall, see it land, or stumble upon its well hidden roost in the dark forest, the perfectly quiet little egg kept its secrets. At least for the time being as it sat completely motionless between the tree roots, resembling a fallen seed pod or dark fossilized fern on the leafbed...

One year later...

If one could fast-forward the clock, they could watch the seasons change over and over again. Nighttime turned into twilight, which turned into dawn, which turned into midday, which turned into dusk before turning into night again. The luscious green summer forest soon turned over to the dead brown leaves of autumn which whitened during the winter, blossoming with fruits and flowers during the springtime, only to return again back to summer. A full cycle, a flashing glimpse of one whole year focused on the same spot throughout each and every image, showing what was to become of the large black egg, still nestled cozily against the base of the aging willow tree, protected and hidden by its tangling roots in the soft rotting foliage.

Although it was large enough to see plain as day, it resembled a rock or ancient plant fossil, and blended in beautifully with its surroundings, at least during the summertime. The four changing seasons had effected the egg somewhat. It had rolled slightly from its original position during a small flash flood caused by a mildly terrible lightning storm. The egg had been subjected to a small forest fire as the willow tree it was hidden under was struck by lightning. Even though the egg sat dormant on top of a natural nest of red hot burning coals covered in flames, it did not cook the fetus inside. The egg appeared to be fire resistant, or perhaps even fire activated as the fetus began to twitch and show signs of life like a flapping shrimp. At that point in time, the as yet unhatched baby dragon was actually the same size as a shrimp, swimming inside a large eggy fishbowl of nutrients, proteins and vitamins. It didn't even know where it was, and experienced no effect from the waking storms.

As winter came, it had snowed for two days straight during a nasty blizzard which killed most of the trees and covered the ground with a blanket of heavy snow. The egg was camouflaged naturally by the sheet of snow which had collected on top of the egg shell, but the fetus inside the egg did not freeze. Instead, the colder temperatures triggered another genetic process in the creature's body. It started to change genders, just like some reptile fetuses had a tendency to do. As spring came, many rodents, snakes, frogs, insects, squirrels and raccoons would find the large egg and use it as a stepping stone, jumping on top of it in order to run up the willow tree, which was already growing back strong. But even the pressure from the weight of a mountain lion still wasn't enough to crush the lifeform inside.

After a whole year of these exciting changes and events had passed, the egg never moved or changed size. But the little baby dragon inside the egg kept growing bigger and bigger. Now it wasn't a tiny little shrimp anymore. The leech-like embryo had developed into a large wyrm or serpent, which continued to grow with each passing moon until finally it grew two eyes and four legs and started to resemble a soft-bodied salamander. Our unhatched infant was now over 3 feet long from head to tail, roughly the same size as a small monitor lizard. Slowly but surely, its skin began to toughen and soon the baby dragon inside the egg started to develop its first boney scales, taking on more of a reptillian appearance that wasn't so soft or slimey.

It grew its first tiny little baby teeth that were as sharp as a needle, and tiny little claws the size of hawk talons and as sharp as cat claws. Soon, fleshy flabs would appear under the armpits of each forelimb, connecting the animal's elbows to its body like a small pair of sails or fins. They were far too small to enable the baby dragon to do anything but swim around faster, but these small flappy membranes were actually the first makings of tiny little bat-like wings. Right now, however, they just looked like lizard gills, and were not nearly developed enough to enable the dog-sized dragon to glide through the air, let alone fly.

They did help with one thing though besides swimming. These gills acted like little bags or kites for catching wind and providing enough lift that, if the hatchling was to run at full speed, it could potentially achieve a sense of temporary bipedalism before landing on all fours. This would help the defenseless little tetrapod to run even faster for small distances on its two hindlegs, giving it a darting edge over much larger predators. It was a useful evolutionary advantage, and a necessary one, for it was possibly the only defense the poor little creature had. The dragon's internal oil sacks helped it to navigate underwater to such a point that even inside its dark gooey shell, the tiny little larval dragon was already smart enough to determine up from down as it swam around in circles, slowly feeding on its own yoke while continuing to grow bigger over time.

Finally the summer had returned, along with the heat and rain. The rising temperatures caused the unhatched baby dragon to mutate and change genders once again in direct sunlight, only this would be the last time it did this, as the dragon slowly evolved to another stage of development which no longer enabled the gender changing process. Finally, the dragon's sex had been determined. It was to become a male dragon, and this would determine the rest of the animal's life as it continued to mature. The egg was getting soft now and ready to hatch as the outer shell began to change colors like a fruit that's been ripened.

The dragon's small, fragile body was now strong enough to meet the new world. It would finally stand a fighting chance, albeit a very small chance of survival in the wilderness, but a small chance nonetheless. However, it did not hatch. Although it had been a year since the egg was incubated, and it was now time to hatch, it had received no care. It had been neglected to the forces of nature, and while the baby dragon inside was very much alive and healthy, it was becoming a late bloomer. The temperature of the egg had not been carefully regulated like it should have been, and the four-legged beast inside was still underweight. So it continued to hibernate under the weeping willow, lest it become a dwarf dragon and too small to fulfill its intended purpose. Rather than hatching which would risk stunting its own growth, the baby dragon instead lay dormant inside its egg and did nothing, allowing the time to pass.

As the time passed and days began to change, so too did the unhatched infant dragon. It had slowly evolved and developed nicely into something which looked very similar to a gliding lizard, only much larger. It's oil bladders started to mutate and become gas bladders, while it's gills became gliding membranes. It's lungs grew bigger while it's toes and claws grew longer. Finally, the tiny dracodylidae was ready to hatch. It wiggled around and twitched quietly, pushing its slightly curved elongated snout against the egg shell from inside its pink, gooey veined center.

At first there was a crack, and soon the egg shell began to break away as the tiny forelimb of a dog-sized reptiloid reached out from between the cracks, curling its talons and hooking on to the edge of the busted shell. Then another hooked claw appeared, gripping the egg's outer shell as the scaley dragon lifted itself up. The egg's lid rested on the creature's head as it poked its face out, it's large round golden snake-like eyes simply menacing and frightening to behold with their diamond-shaped black pupils and slanted, scaley brow ridges. If ever a slimey salamander could look evil or dangerous, it was now, as it tested the air by tasting it with its forked snake-like tongue. It was obvious just from its appearance that this animal was a carnivore.

But even predators have to partake in the race for survival at some point. The infant dragon's natural borne instincts took over, and within moments, it managed to break free from its heavily armored egg shell. It didn't seem like much, but the struggle to get free had left the little baby dragon exhausted and tired. It crawled out into the world for the first time since its conception, and proceeded to rest between the protruding roots of the old willow tree. Although its scales were harder now, its flesh was still soft and slimey, covered in a protective layer of mucus which gave off a pheromone that would temporarily ward off predators. However, the baby dragon was still brittle and weak with soft skin and cartlidge-like hollow bones. Breaking free and hatching from the egg was tiring and the baby dragon had no choice but to rest afterwards. It would bask in the sun and dry out, allowing its body to absorb the sunlight and warm up, giving its heart and lungs the boost needed in order to get its blood pumping. The dragon's skin was sandy in color and semi-transparent like a newborn gecko. Although it had claws, its talons were still soft and very small, more useful for climbing and digging than for hunting or fighting off hungry wildcats.

After a few minutes, the newborn's claws and skin had dried out and hardened wonderfully. The large lizard reared its head up for the first time, and like a frog or gecko, would almost comically lick its large round golden croc-like eyes with its blackish purple, forked snake-like tongue. It was tasting the air, and becoming more familiar with its surroundings. The baby dragon could already smell other animals from over a mile away. It could hear their footsteps with its false ear lobes, located behind its eyes where it still had gills. It had a rounded snout and looked almost cute, if only for its small size and disproportionately big eyes, tiny cat-like claws and itty bitty webbed toes. It croaked its throat, or tried to, but no sound was presented by the creature's tiny call to its mother. It couldn't even chirp, for its body was still developing and the baby dragon had not yet learned to use its vocal abilities. It tried again as it's neck bulged, but again to no avail. Soon, it began to crawl or slither on all fours, taking its very first baby steps. It started to crawl along the forest floor, leaving the natural nest it had been in between the roots of the still burnt but partially green, old thriving willow tree for the first time in its entire life.
