Ben-To: The new Kingdom 11
It was the cause of little Asebi and her animal like headgear. Soon as she seen Satou her wandering appearance changed to that of a happy camper. She is somehow different around people she likes, were it not that she does not know the bad luck she carries around with her to those she touches. Satou knows all to well after eating her bento.
It was Asebi who shouted through the hallway at Satou. “Ahh it is Satou. Good morning Satou!.” Oblivious as always of her own curse she neared a sign that said the floor was just waxed and slippery. Her hands waved wildly in the air as she tripped over her scarf. It took all her effort not to take a nose dive on to the floor only to land on the end of her scarf again and slip exit hallway to the left across the slippery floor. Her last scream was echoed through the narrow passage and sounded as if she was having fun. “Whaaaaaaaaaah it is slippery!”
No matter how bad her luck was she ended up with no scrapes or cuts.
“Oh Satou you are up already” Shaga looked around and greeted the sisters Kyou. “Good morning President and vice-president.’
-“Shaga I be going to the supermarket and get some answers.”
“Do not ignore us Pervert, we be gunning for you from now on. We will be on top of you again someday.”
-“Oh right I meant to ask you. If I could lent your strength in the neighbouring supers. I let Shaga fill you in. I need to go Take care Shaga.”
“Hey Satou you can’t just…”
Satou ran off and fell face first over the slippery sign. Sliding a good couple of yards before hitting a door to the stairwell.
He was sure to find out today what these visions or appearances meant. And he was on his way.
After a while he ran into Nikaidou who was casually strolling near the park. When he saw Satou he shouted out to him and urged him to come over and have a chat.
“Yoh Satou what have you been up to? I heard some strange rumours about you seeing ghosts?”
Satou Scratched behind his ears as he answered. “That is the Nkaidou for you. Still have a good network for information I gather.”
-“I was told I was nothing than a stray dog after we got disbanded. But the network still existed and I guess I ned to thank you for still being able to show my face. That said I hate being put on the same level as you.”
“Than surpass me Nikaidou and proof yur worth. True I am seeing ghosts and I am about gather the story from the one man who might still know something.”
-“Surpass you will be my only option to gain a title for myself.’ Nikaidou smiled and saw satou off.
Satou was restless and curious to know what was happening t him and as he ran off waving he shouted back to Nikaidou. “I be counting on good fight from you in the next brawl.”
He looked puzzled as he watched Satou’s smile fade in the sunlight.
