    Both the killer and Yung fell on the river. But only one survived... maybe it was a simple glimpse of luck that got Yung out of that deadly situation...

    He finds his way towards the nearest land. Takes a deep breath and closes his eyes laying down next to a group of rocks.

    "What was that ?.. what a horrible feeling. Did something push me off the bridge ?"

    He says, before taking another deep breath and slowly standing up. The absence of air caused him a very heavy feeling on his chest and a light headache.. as the blur on his vision clears his first sight is a village. A big one, seems like a 'civilized city'..

    His clothes were heavy and wet.. maybe someone in the city could actually help him. He also needed to rest a little.. since this whole fight got him pretty good. The question about the unknown force that pushed him off the bridge was still in his head.

    ...

    11:30 PM

    ...

    After getting his clothes clean, he can see a big crowd in the center of the city. Lights everywhere and many people in dress and suits walking around in horses. This kind of life just doesn't suit him at all... it looks so peaceful!.. where's the fun in that ?.. no fighting ?..

    He approaches the crowd of well dressed people and notices that it's a party, looking closer he can see that one man stands in the third floor of a quite good looking mansion.. he stands in the counter looking at the party. He's probably the owner of the house and the host of the party.

    ...

    "Sir, you accept wine ?"

    ...

    Said a waiter as he passed by Yung, the same said no.. after all he is not even in the age of drinking. He thanks the waiter and walks away noticing another person that looks a little different from the others..

    ...

    "What are you looking at ?!"

    ...

    The girl said, she looked a little younger than him maybe her parents were in that party. That would not be a surprise since this places is probably filled with rude and indelicate people.

    ...

    "Oh uh.. nothing at all, just saw you alone there and thought it would be interesting to talk"

    ...

    The girl smiled before she walked to somewhere less crowded. Yung followed her, not sure yet about who she was or what she was really doing there.

    ...

    "You know, I'm really just staying here a couple days and thought about enjoying Mr. Albert's party"

    ...

    "Mr. Albert ?"

    ...

    The girl laughed

    ...

    "You're not from here are you ?.. samurai boy"

    "No.. I'm a traveler. Oh uhm, Yung Takeuchi is the name"

    ...

    "Call me Yui"

    ...

    They both talked more through the entire night. Yet the girl was quite reserved about some things. Yung didn't really notice her behavior. Sometimes she acted mean towards Yung.. but he didn't really mind it. Should he ?..

    ...

    "Where are you staying Yung ?"

    ...

    "Oh, I just came out of a river so... pretty much nowhere"

    ...

    "I'm staying in a tavern. You should go there too... it doesn't cost much"

    ...

    He thanked her as they talked and after a couple more hours.. they walked together towards the Tavern.

    They waved their goodbyes and went to different rooms. Yung took off his coat and armor and placed it all next to his bed.

    ...

    3:25 AM

    ...

    Yung waked up to the sound of yells and swords clanging outside. He takes his Katana and runs outside only to see Yui and a... Witch hunter trying to kill her. What is happening exactly ?..

    Yui throws quite alot of different spells at The witch hunter but he defends all or them with his own magical sword.


    ...

    "You are dead, you damn witch!"

    ...

    He said before casting a spell that simply pushed Yui all the way towards the end of the street. The Witch hunter got a glance at Yung and said..

    ...

    "You.. go back inside or I'll have to take care of you too"

    ...

    "Are you trying to get me scared, sir ?"

    ...

    "No"

    ...

    Said the witch hunter before doing the same to Yung making him fly towards a building... he blacked out for some time.

    ...

    5:50 AM


    ...

    He opens his eyes, empty streets. And it's raining. He rushes inside and grabs his coat and armor before running outside again.

    There was smoke on the sky coming from somewhere not very far from his location. Probably still in the city. He starts walking to the fire location..

    And there she is. Right on the top of a bonfire, she was locked inside a cage.. what were they going to do ?.. these damn witch hunters were going to kill her ?!..

    ...

    "You better stop!"

    ...

    Yelled Yung before taking his katana and rushing towards the first hunter. Before he could spell anything Yung was already close enough for a sword combat. The hunter tried to hit Yung's chest but with no luck since the boy was able to dodge and hit the Hunter's neck.

    Another one used the same spell as before but Yung used the dead body as a cover. The weight made him stay still.. he threw the dead man on the floor before taking one of his throwing knifes and throwing it at the man. With a succefull hit... the man fell down on the floor. The last one was close enough to the fire.. it was a woman, she had a horrific smile on her face.

    ...

    "We are not going to stop!.. she will die!"

    ...

    The woman started to run towards him with to butcher knifes.. he simply grabbed her by the arms and threw her on the ground. While doing so he was able to disarm her and take both knifes. He threw them in the fire and pointed his katana to the woman.

    ...


    "Now go!.. and tell your friends that if they try anything again. I will goddamn kill all of you"

    ...

    She ran away as fast as she could.. dissapearing into the dark streets.. now Yung had to help Yui. He tried to search the hunter body and luckly a key was found... he jumps on the cage and tries to open the door with the key..

    ...

    "Yung please!... help me out of here. I don't want to die"

    ...

    She said. The obvious scared look on her face made Yung much more stressed since the key didn't work. He tried once again before the key broke inside the lock. The fire was starting to reach Yui and the cage. Yung grabbed his Katana and quickly started to hit the lock multiple times.. one hit after the other he started to get tired..

    ...

    "You tried... run away while you can or you will die with me Yung.... just go please.."

    ...

    His energy was already at it's limit. But he kept trying to break the lock until... the sound of metal breaking was heard and the cage door opened. Yung quickly took Yui out of the cage and jumped away from the fire. She was tied up.. a look of Happiness on her face could be seen aswell as tears..

    ...

    "Thank you"

    ...

    He cut the ropes and she quickly hugged him. Unsure of what he was supposed to do... He hugged her back.

    ...

    "You're safe now. They won't bother you anymore. Now let's go back to the tavern.. you deserve some sleep"

    ...

    Yung said before carrying her towards the tavern. That night was one of the weirdest and most horrific nights of Yui's life. But her past was still worse than that. He placed her on her bed and waved before going to the door.

    ...

    "Yung!..."

    ...

    "Yes ?"

    ...

    "Can you stay here, atleast until I sleep ?"

    ...

    "Mhm.. sure"

    ...

    He said taking a book from the small bookshelf and sitting on a couch. He looked at her and smiled before he started to read the book.

    ...

    "Goodnight. Yui"

    ...

    Good job with editing. I enjoyed the story so far, kinda interested on the mystery surrounding the witch hunters and their goals as well as mysterious force that pushed him into the river. Hopefully the lass can have a nice recovery.
