"Anubis? How can you be
so sure?" Cye asked, skeptical.
Ryo clentched his fists in anger.
"Why else would he be coming around so
often? Plus, he is always around Mia when he comes"
It seemed almost impossible
for the admirer to be Anubis, the warlord
that had a black heart.
"Maybe we're just jumping
to conclusions" Rowen suggested.
Ryo looked at them. "Then
why don't we ask Mia ourselves? We don't
have to tell her Yuli said anything"
It was agreed, the 5 ronins
set off towards Mia's house again, while
Yuli sat on the ground silently.
"Mia?" Sage knocked
on the door of Mia's room. "Are you in there?"
Mia opened the door with a smile.
"Hi guys, whats wrong?"
They pushed Sage foward, the
chosen one to ask her.
"We want to ask you something,
Mia" Sage told her, loosing
his nerve by the seconds.
"Ask away" Mia leaned
up against the doorway.
Sage knew the guys would be
mad if he chickened out, so he
decided to just ask her. "Who gave you that rose?"
Mia looked startled. "What
"Come on Mia, you came
out of the woods holding a rose" Kento
Mia felt her heart jump, she
couldn't tell them who had given
it to her. "I found it"
The ronins hadn't thought of
that one, but they seriously doubted
that. Mia wasn't the type to bring home flowers, she had said
before that she didn't like taking care of them.
"Did Anubis give you that
rose?" Ryo asked.
Mia was shocked, how dare he
ask such a question.
"Frankly Ryo, whoever gives
me items is not your concern. I can
take care of myself, so please don't attack my personal life" She
closed the door, surprisingly happy at what she had said.
The ronins were astonished, but left her to be.
It had been a week after Mia
had last seen Anubis, yet she had
noticed something strange. The rose he had given her, was not
dying. A normal rose would have dried out by now, but this one
remained the same as the day he gave it to her.
The ronins had left Mia alone,
but they did not quit talking
about Anubis. It seemed so ironic that whenever Anubis
showed up, he would always be around Mia.
Mia carefully layed the rose
on her nightstand, before she
sank into her bed for sleep.
She didn't notice it, but an
evil figure sat on her balcony.
The figure smirked evily as
he noticed the rose next to
her, she would be perfect.
When the warlord of corruption
stepped into the light of Mia's room,
knocking Mia out with his fist.
Anubis appeared on Mia's balcony,
he hadn't seen her in such a long time.
She wasn't in her room, yet
something layed on her bed.
The rose he had given her, had been cut down the center by a sword.
