Tokyo Arc Chapter ThreeEvery day, sitting and looking at the setting sun, Ryuken tried to find an answer but he never found it. He knew only one thing; the question will always ring in his head again and again on the harsh yet clear voice, inspiring and cold like the sunshine that he had waken up to at the first day of his new life.
His new master never wasted a word or any other ways to introduce herself nor was she interested in Ryuken, but she was a presence which Ryuken calmly accepted and even though his days were much more tiring and cruel than any he had before he never tried to go home. Sitting in the setting sun's last rays he was thinking silently; his family, he thought, is better off without him, though he will have to let them know he is okay.
After the short dinner as the sun finally left the skies of Tokyo and the city switched on its lamps and neon lights the day ended. They went to sleep. The master slept on the only bed while Ryuken and Mamosu slept on some rags and pallets. At every dawn,
Tokyo Arc Chapter TwoRyuken's parents seemingly reached their limits. He never caused any trouble before, but he had been targeted by problems one after another. Street kids and upper class guys usually picked on him, sometimes until he had some painful marks left, and sometimes his boss held him in the office. He lacked any confidence, or at least when it came to others he usually never raised his voice.

Tokyo Arc Chapter OneThe story that unfolds now took place in the outskirts of Tokyo. The hero of it, altough not heroic at all, was Ryuken, a 15 year old boy. He had a normal life with his family went to the nearby school and was interested in girls. The only thing that made him go through the cruelest situations of his life was his only secret. A secret that he could finally leave behind after the day on which our story started.
That day was scorching hot and the mirror-like concrete of the road just made it more unbearable. Ryuken, however, blessed his senses that he has chosen not to join any clubs this term too. He thankfully thought about the cool shower and the shade of his room he was to enjoy soon instead of the old shool building. He could walk home under the shadows of the trees in the park so...
