From the beginning, their fates were intertwined. No matter how long they fought, no matter how hard they struggled, it was inevitable that in the end, they would have to rely on each other. No one is without their own fear, no matter how much they might like to believe it.
Kazue once believed herself to be strong. To be the sort of person that nothing could break. Experience taught her that she was more fragile than she could have ever imagined. With her sensei absent and one of her teammates on the brink of being torn away from the shinobi world, she's left with the question of how everything became so complicated- and what she can do to change it.
As the stability of the shinobi world begins to crumble- however- she's thrown face-to-face with a stunning realization that perhaps she was misguided in thinking the worst thing left to fear was death. In reality, the worst fear never crossed her mind.
That the one person who matters more to her than anyone in the world- perhaps even the man who's begun to break through every one of her walls- isn't permanent.
No one is immortal in a world on the brink of war.
Jun, he may have known that there were far too many things in this world that he feared, but he believed that if he ignored those fears perhaps they'd one day cease to exist. Or at least, he'd hoped. He'd hung everything on this dream.
It's ironic how easily a dream can turn into a nightmare.
Those fears became non-existent the moment that he ceased to have control over his own body. He's become trapped- his own mind the cage. There is really only one fear that matters now.
The fear that before long, he'll completely disappear.
Then, Miki. In the wake of the loss of something she'd once feared the existence of, she's left only with the fear a of failure. In her mind, there's only one solution and in order to bring back her daughter, she'll do anything.
Three souls- intertwined by fate and circumstance.
Not a single one- Fearless.
