"wha- where am I? Who am I?" I ask myself, looking around the dark room. suddenly a light catches my eye, a light from outside the window. I peer out to see a huge television on the building across from me. a news report is playing.
"Just hours ago, this video footage went viral, we play it for you again." the news girl disappears, replaced by a video recording. the screen is black for a few minutes, a small voice is heard whispering. "I heard something, in the living room." it says, the camera is turned to reveal a young girl, no more then 13, she turns the camera back down the hallway. a single light shines at the end, coming from a crack in a door. she opens it slowly, as she does the camera comes face to face with a horrible scene, two dead bodies, a male and female, blood covering them, the sound of crying is heard, then a faint squeak of "mommy? Daddy?" and then laughter as a gun shot is heard. the camera drops. the laughter gets louder, suddenly the camera is moving again, lifted into the air. it is turned to reveal the face of a man "Me?" I say, it was my face on the screen. the laughter gets louder and louder then he stops. "Behold world, I am the 7th king, the colorless king! nothing will stop me short of death!" the video cuts out.
I look at my hands, had that really been me? "I...I can't remember?" a helicopter passes close by the window, searching for me no doubt. "no, no I refuse to believe it, I am not this colorless king, I need to clear my name! I need to find someone...anyone who will remember me!"
Same time, halfway across the city the blue king, 4th king story.
I stand in front of my men, all in a line behind me, like perfect soldiers in a perfect army. "do we have targets confirmed inside?" I ask miss Izzo, my second hand.
"Sir, confirmation, the 3rd king, Red and his group, HOMRA are inside the building, for what reason we don't yet understand. they appear to be attacking with no cause."
I lift my megaphone to my mouth, ready to speak. "This is The 4th king, Blue, Reisi Munakata, HOMRA Shall cease and desist all terroristic actions, or I shall be forced to take custody of your king, the 3rd, Red." I say, formal and precis, perfect for someone who wields my power. I stand with my hand at my sword, as do my men, awaiting a response. it comes soon after, a fireball launched out of the building, landing in front of my feet, aimed perfectly, strange for someone as destructive as the 3rd king to be so precise.
Same time, same place, The Red king, 3rd king story.
My hands are in my pocket, anna walks next to me, she is one of the only things that keeps me tethered to this pitiful earth, to think the only thing between me and destroying half of japan is a little girl, no bigger then my arms. Yata comes riding up on his skateboard, powered by his flame abilities. "yo boss, the guys are in place, ready to burn this building to the ground." he says.
"good, lets give them a show." I say, Yata takes anna, she won't be part of this, I don't want her to be. I hear the 4th king yelling at me on his damned megaphone, I smile and throw a huge fireball with one hand, it lands right in front of him, a lucky break, I aint made for precision like him, only destruction. they rush in, the 3rd and his army. my men come to my side, I give them a show, throwing wave after wave of heat blast at them, not even 10 percent of my power is used, Reisi walks right up to be and puts his sword to my throat, good, I kneel, "defeated" yeah right, like anyone could beat me. "Mikoto Souh, as the blue king, and 4th I hereby place you under arrest. your men at the base of the building have been detained before they could melt the supports, do you surrender?" he says, so smug.
"let my men go, and I will go without a fight." I say, spitting a ball of fire out at his feet with a smile. he agrees to the terms and I am taken in. just as I wanted.
