There are only two paths you can choose. You can sit quietly and be selected out of this world, or you can adapt and change.
-Gai Tsutsugami

"Ryo... You've changed," A voice from behind said weakly.

The two turned around and saw who the voice belonged to. They gasped.

It was Akari... She was stuck in crystals.

"W-What did they do to you Akari?" Katsu asked.

"Their sucking my life out of me just to stabilize Shadou in this world..." she replied weakly.

"We will get you out of there!" Ryo shouted and ran to him and before he could reach Akari, he was knocked back by a barrier.

"Ryo!" Akari shouted in fear.

Then, a loud menacing laughter echoed around the room.

"S-Shadou... She's here..." Akari said with fear written on her face.

"It's okay Akari! We will get you out of there! I hope..." Katsu said, then a few chains went flying at him and tied him up. "EH?! HOW DID THIS HAPPEN?!"

"KATSU!" Ryo shouted and tried to free Katsu from the chains.

Then, another few chains went flying at Ryo, Ryo dodged them and shot them, but one of caught his foot and caused him to slip. He ended up tied up as well. "UGH! SHADOU IS THIS YOUR DOING?"

"It is." A voice said and a girl approached them. Shadou... But she looked different.

Her hair was black with shades of red... or was it blood dripping from her hair?! She wore a black dress with red trimmings and black boots. Her eyes were of crimson red.

"Shadou? What happened to you?" Akari asked.

"Oh, I had to take care of a few people and their blood got splattered on me," Shadou said.

"So it is blood..." she said. "Who are those people?"

Shadou smirked, then she made the chains tighter around the two boys. The room became darker and the spotlight shone on Katsu, Ryo and Akari.

AKARI'S POV

This scene looks familiar...

"Choose one to die, Akari. The one who lives will be my Adam," Shadou said. "The one who dies will satisfy my revenge."

"Ch-Choose?" I choked.

"Akari! Don't do it!" Katsu shouted.

"You don't have to choose me!" Ryo shouted.

"SILENCE!" A voice vibrated through the dark room.

"Who do you choose Akari?" Shadou asked as she caressed my left cheek. "Your brother or your boyfriend. Who do you wish to die? Who in this room do you think is the most worthy to die?"

I.... choose....
