Re: NL the Anime
"Hey..." Sakatsu's body tightened. Her back stiff, her body shaking in anger. "Heal the wounded and bury the dead. NC could attack us any day now!"
Lily awoke upon a dirt mound, her body throbbing from the tumble she had just taken. “Ugh…now I know what a pair of socks in the dryer feels like,” she hissed, pushing herself up. “What the hell was that all about anyway?” She rubbed the back of her head and pulled back to look at her hand. Tiny droplets of blood painted their way across her hand. She spat unto the ground and touched the spot again.
She shook her head to try and shake off the dizzy feeling and looked up. “I fell…from there and I’m still alive?” Lily stood and swayed slightly. “I’ve never been this part of the forest before. I wonder where I am….”
She wandered through the thick forest. She heard soft voices talking in the distant and proceeded forward. “If there’s talking then there must be people!” she exclaimed happily. She ran through the bushes, past the trees and into a small campsite. The men and women there stopped in mid action to stare at her. She waved, embarrassed. “Umm…heh…heh…hi.”
“Lily?” said a voice from behind the crowd. The crowd parted as a man pushed through them and toward her.
“Daisuke?” Lily was slightly taken back to see Daisuke here, and in his Mod outfit. He looked like he was ready for battle.
“What are you doing here?” he ran up to her and took her hands. He lifted up her arms and checked the back of her head. “What happened to you?!”
Lily shook her head and sat up. “What am I doing here? What are you doing here? And in your Mod armor….” She stopped when she truly looked at him. The symbols were different; the orchid flower that went across his heart was no longer there. The symbol in his left hand was gone and replaced by a chocker with a dark green square on it. “That’s not a NL’s Mod outfit.”
Daisuke turned, embarrassed. “Lily, you need to go home now, I don’t want you in the middle of this.”
Lily felt her heart drop to her toes. Her body went numb from realization. Daisuke wasn’t there on NL business, he was there as a solider for NC. “You’re going to war against the village aren’t you?”
Whispers spread over the crowd; Daisuke’s face went pale as he looked back at her. He gripped her shoulders and shook her slightly. “How did you know ab…”
Lily slapped him hard across the face. Everyone stared at her stunned as soft tears fell from her eyes. “You all should be ashamed! Those are innocent people living in that village, women, child and families! Who gives you the right to disrupt them like that?”
“That would be me,” said a deep, seductive voice from behind the crowd. A man dressed in all black armor, a deep red loincloth draped between his legs as he walked with respect and power toward her.
“Tallion…” Lily whispered. Lily stormed up to him, a anger burning and daring to spread through her whole body. She slapped him across his face. “You monster!”
Tallion sighed and brushed her slap away as if it was nothing but a simple pat. “Daisuke please restrain your girlfriend and escort her back to her house so she can go back to making babies, or whatever it is that little housewives like you do.”
“Better ask now because it’s not like you’ll ever have a woman!” Lily snapped. Daisuke laid a hand on Lily’s shoulder. “Get off me!” she snapped, throwing her arm back at Daisuke’s touch. “I thought Mods were suppose to protect the innocent not attack them!”
Tallion sighed and brought his face down to where their noses barely brushed. “Do I know you from somewhere?”
Lily brought her hand back to punch him when another man stepped up from behind her and grabbed her wrist. “Better stop now why you’re ahead,” said Verm.
Lily struggled against Verm’s strong grip. “Let me go!” He pulled her away. Lily felt a burning sensation from her wrist. That hurts! Why does his touch hurt me?! Tears poured. “I never thought any of you would be so disgusting! Haven’t they struggled enough?”
“Those filthy savages are to full of pride to take any help we offer them. Their beloved village is nothing but ruins of times past and we have direct orders from Tom to destroy it.”
“There are people living there!” She pulled her hand free of Verm’s grasp and ran up to Daisuke. She grabbed his arm and held on tight, staring deep into his eyes. “There are homes and families up there. You can’t just destroy them.”
Daisuke stared at her with a blank expression. He couldn’t find the words to make her understand. Lily’s tears dripped softly on his arm and hands.
Tallion stepped forward and pulled her hand away. “We won’t destroy them, we’re going to provide them with food and shelter in NC or NL.”
“But that won’t be home, that’ll be prison to them!” Lily’s body shook from anger. “Why can’t I make you understand?” Her heart beat slowed as the reality sunk in. Was this how Sakatsu felt when I wouldn’t understand? All the pain, the anger, the frustration all coming out at once. Lily’s body calmed and she took a step back, her arms falling limply to her side. “I can’t make any of you understand. I hope that when you arrive there, you’ll see the error of your ways.” She fell to her knees in defeat, staring at the ground. “I hope that this battle with not happen, that no more innocent blood can be spilled.”
Daisuke leaned down and put an arm around her shoulders. She jerked it off and stood by herself. “Someone take me home, I just want to go home now.”
“I’ll take you home…” Daisuke whispered.
Tallion stepped in front of them. “I should arrest you for striking an officer, refusing orders and insulting an officer.” He reached for her, she gave no fight back, her body was to tired to fight. When she didn’t feel a hand on her, she looked up to see Daisuke gripping hard onto Tallion’s wrist.
“That will be something dealt with for another day. Right now, I’m taking her home.” Daisuke hissed, his eyes burning with suppressed anger.
Tallion held up his hands and Daisuke led Lily out of the campsite and into the forest. They were quiet for most of the trip. When they got to the Forest of Cherry Blossoms, Daisuke stopped. Lily walked forward shortly before turning and looking back. “Hmm?”
Daisuke refused to look her in the eye. “I don’t want to fight. I know it’s wrong.”
Lily bite down hard on her lower lip to keep the anger at a low simmer. “Then why don’t you lay down your sword and stop this?”
Daisuke swayed from one foot to the next, trying to keep his mind stable. “Because, those are my orders.”
“The Daisuke that I know doesn’t take orders. He gives them,” replied Lily with a steady voice. Daisuke gave a small gasp at Lily’s comment. “You all know it’s wrong,” she continued. “Other then Tallion that is. But you all are willing to do it. Saying you don’t want and not doing are two completely different things, Dai. They are fighting with twigs and sticks while you all have cannons and machine guns. It’s sick and wrong and you of all people should understand.”
Lily turned around and walked past him. “I thought you were different then that, Dai.” She said as she continued on.
He spun around. “Where are you going?!”
“To warn the village of NC’s upcoming attack.” Lily stopped and looked over her shoulder. “Don’t take this the wrong way. I’m not on either side. I’m for the innocent people, that’s why I fight. What do you fight for Daisuke?”
Lily turned and continued walking toward the village. She felt Daisuke’s hand slip into hers. “I fight to protect the people I love,” he whispered. “And the people that they love,” he finished with a childish smile. “Now, lets go stop this war!”
meh, there you go. Wasn't all that happy with it but meh *shrugs*
