''We'll shiver the whole night trough''
''We now present you the afternoon news. A vandal act had place at the back street of the neighborhood of Amonta. Several houses were devastated and a large electricity amount was lost due to several electric discharges that happened in the area according to our satellites. The case is currently under research.''
Jace closes the TV and gets up from the couch, sighing. Heading for the bedroom he hears the door bell ringing; making him stop midway. He decides to get the door first. It was Aya, and behind her, on the street, several firefighters and police officers.
Aya: Uh.. Hi Jace.
Jace: Yeah.. Hi. Damn police and firefighters can't make a bit of silence..
Aya: I know... It must be a pain. It's a miracle how we didn't hit your house in the battle though...
Jace: I know right... Anyways...
Aya: Ah yes! How is Luto feeling?
Jace: Well... I don't really know.. I took care of the wound, with the help of my medical instruction gave to me by my father... But she hasn't woke up yet.
They both head in Jace's room. Luto is lying in the bed, with a wet cold towel on her head.
Aya:... Huh. She doesen't look too good.
Jace: Hopefully she'll get better...
Aya:... Hey.. Jace... When things finally calm down ... Do you think we.... Uhm..... Aya is now blushing pretty hard.
Jace: What's that?
Aya:.... Do you want to go on a date with me?
Jace was speechless. Why did she asked him that now? Why now of all moments? Because she had the opportunity? Jace didn't think like that, because after all, Jace liked Aya. And vice versa.
Jace: ... Yeah. Sure.
Aya: Really?! You don't mind?
Jace: Why would I mind? It's with you after all, Aya, and we've known each other for like forever... So.. Yeah, let's go on a date, when all this calms down.
Aya: Yay... Thank you Jace. I'm so happy.
They both smile at each other; but then suddenly Luto opens eyes and stares at them while they smile happily at each other.
Luto ( with a sleepy voice): what are you love birds, blushing 'round for? she yawns.
Jace: Luto?! You're awake!
Luto: Of course I am... Did you want to get rid of me that much?
Jace: Ah, no.. Not like that. But.... Are you okay?
Luto: Oh yeah... I had a nice nap.
Jace & Aya: NAP...?!
Luto: Uhm, yeah.. Pretty much.... What the hell is this... a bandage? ... Did you guys thought that I'm dying or somethin'?
Jace: Pretty much! You got stabbed for hell's sake! And then you fainted! We thought you're dead for a moment... You got us worried and fell asleep on the battlefield?!
Luto: Yeah sorry about that.... But I was really tired you know! I worked all hard for you guys to dispell that guardian's spell, so that must've took my energy away.
Aya: I see... So spells like that drain your energy?
Luto: That's how it works with every one of us.
Jace: I see... So we don't have unlimited energy to use...
Luto: Anyways.... she yawns again and gets off the bed, today I'm going to teach you guys something important... I know how humans have problems with the battlefield, destroying everything around, so that's why our scientists from Yamato designed something called Fuztestu, or.. the ''Seal''.
Jace: Huh, what's that? A spell? We can cast spells now?
Luto: Pretty much. Think of it as an energy sphere that protects your battlefield and surroundings from being destroyed while in battle.
Aya: Sounds cool, but what does it really do?
Luto: Battles in the Seal can damage real world objects, and harm the paused living beings, though thankfully for both it is possible to reverse the effects if one uses enough power from the Fudara Talisman, the one we own. It can hold and recharge a number of energy that we can ''repair'' the world's surroundings. However, if the Seal is ever unlocked during a battle, the damage is irreparable.
Jace: So we'll be learning that stuff? Nice.
Luto: I don't know if it can really be called ''learning''. You just have to use the Book of Shadows for that,since it is not a difficult of dangerous process.
Aya: Hmm. I see.
Luto: Well, after you master that, we'll go complete our next objective. Remember, our goal is to enter Heavenly Host and return the book of shadows there.
Jace: Oh yeah, I kinda forgot about that.....
Luto: We've been off the track with the preparations, but now we're back on, and that's what matters. Now, we should get some rest first.
Aya: That would be a nice idea, at least until the police and everyone calms down about the situation outside.
Jace: A break wouldn't be bad, huh.... Alright, sounds good.
Luto: Well then, since things are ''calm'' right now, don't you two have some time to do ''that''?
Jace: ''That''? .... Oh.
Aya: ... Luto did you heard us talking while you were asleep?
Luto giggles and then smiles widely
Jace: Oh well. I guess we should, huh, Aya?
Aya: Oh.... Y-Yes... I have to go right now though..
Jace: That's fine. I'll come and pick you up tomorrow at two. That cool?
Aya: Yeah, it's okay. I'll go now, bye Luto, Jace!
Luto: See ya....
Aya leaves the room and after getting her shoes and putting them on, gets outside.
Luto approaches Jace and pokes his forhead.
Luto: You better not disappoint her tomorrow.
Jace: What the hell Luto, who asked for your advice?
Luto: Tehehe. I'm just kidding.
It's already pretty late so they should rest. Tomorrow's a new day.
