Driving along the empty highway, Yosuke applied the brakes and the car drifted to a stop. Stepping out of the car, he retrieved the cigarette from the crumpled pack and lit it. He tilted his head and gazed at the starry night sky. He knew that not far away from him, a bitter war has started. The static from the radio broadcast added a vintage touch to the christmas carol.
"Joy to the world, the Lord is come..."
His bitter laughter echoed in the serene atmosphere. Salvation? Peace? This would soon be myths to the future generations. The broadcast was interrupted, and a voice crackled on air.
"This is an emergency. ZAFT forces have engaged on the Earth Alliance forces. To all civilians in October City, please enter the nearest emergency shelter... i repeat..."
Yosuke stepped into his car, stepped on the pedals and headed for the nearest inn. There is something he must find out.
" The sound of Requiem will be heard by all Sinners, and the cycle be completed"
The words kept repeating in his mind. What exactly does the man in black mean and how does he know so much about me?
Even though Yosuke was enlisted into ZAFT before, he did not disclose his true identity, thus the person can't be a ZAFT personnel. The man called himself the Enigma. Who could it be and what does he want?
Yosuke sat down and ordered a cup of hot chocolate. He took a sip, and looked at the owner for some time. "Do you have something for me?"
The owner replied: " Are you Mr. Ichigo? A man came by just now. Said he was called Enigma or something. he asked me to pass this to you." Yosuke opened the package, and found a casette tape.
"Sir, is that a casette tape you have there? That is rare nowadays, with all the compact discs and stuff..." But Yosuke knew. His Mustang has a casette player, perhaps one of the few left in this era.
He walked back to his car, and took a brief glance at the sky again. The Libra constellation displayed with full brillance tonight. He inserted the casette into the player.The cycle must be completed. The Seraphim has spoken. May the Aurora Borealis guide the lost traveller towards safety. Yosuke, you shall be the one to mark the destruction of the world, and the birth of Utopia...
The Mustang sped through the highway, never looking back, never looking back... This post has been edited by cruxofpenance on Dec 26 2005, 03:04 AM
