[center Raven glanced at him, raising a brow. Had his parents really named him that? She wouldn't be surprised. People came up with some strange names for their children. She'd met someone named Darling one time, and it was a man. People were strange.]

[center She stopped for a moment, frowning as she saw a few of the undead down the street. Easily avoidable, but it would take longer to get to where she needed to go. She took a moment to debate if they'd go after them or not, but decided to take the scenic route. No point in getting them needlessly killed.]

[center [b "I'm Raven,"] she said once they were out of earshot. Short, sweet, simple. He didn't need to know her last name. They weren't useful, anyway. Hell, their first names weren't necessarily useful. But it was nice to have something to hold onto. Otherwise you really would go mad.]

[center Finally finding the street she'd been looking for, she quickened her pace, eyeing the corner store ahead. She had found out about it a while back, but hadn't had the chance to get to it since there had been more undead in the area. However, it seemed only a handful remained, which meant they could get lucky with whatever was inside.]

[center She stopped and turned to him. [b "Can I trust you to have my back if shit goes south?"] She knew it was dumb to ask. He could turn and run off to leave her for dead. But deep down, she hoping he wouldn't.]

[center [b Rex had followed the women and the gunshots seized. There was.. No screaming or shouting? Maybe it was survivors coming across the undead? It didn't sound like a firefight. With the lack of screaming? Maybe they won? Rex hoped it was that, a case of the "good guys" winning. Hopeful wasn't it? He knew it was.. Part of him wanted to go and see...]]

[center [b Before he could ponder the thought this woman had asked his name. His name? What was his name again? He didn't forget did he? He knew right? It's...]]

[center [+orange R-Rex..]]

[center [b That wasn't his name it was very obviously an alias he didn't even try acting like it wasn't. What was his name than? How could he forget that? Something so important? This was the name he chose for himself now. That.. That was all that mattered. Right? Or not... He wasn't so sure anymore.]]

[center [+orange W-Whats your.. Um..]]

[center [b He wanted to ask her name but he couldn't manage to choke the words out. "Ugh why am I like this? I can't even talk at the end of the world! God I hate myself.. Why am I such a.. God damn it. Rex calm down just... Talk. Just talk.. Yeah real nice advice of a life time right there. Really? I'm holding a conversation with myself in my head just freaking fine! I'd blame it on the end of the world but I was always like this even in Highschool.. I remember that but not my own name? Really? Damn it I'm so bad at this..."]]

[center [b That aside... What was her plan? To lay low? To move ahead? Was she looking for other survivors? Or was she trying to find a place to bunker down? What was her end game? Or was she like him? Going with the flow? With no real plan at all?]]

[center Raven glanced back at him as he spoke. She had to admit, she was a little surprised. She hadn't expected him to take her up on her offer. She was sure most people would've walked away, or worse, shot her in the back and left her for dead. That second option had almost happened a few times, so it was a relief that that wasn't the case this time.]

[center Deep down, though, she was also a little...excited. She wasn't sure how long their companionship would last. It was possible it would just be for the night, maybe even a week. Either way, she was kind of glad she wasn't going to be alone for some time.]

[center Unfortunately, as they walked, neither one of them had said much more, which was beginning to make her uncomfortable. Finally getting tired of only hearing their footsteps on the pavement, she broke the silence with a question. [b "What's your name?"] Together for a while or not, getting to know each other at least a little bit would be better than being completely strangers. Wasn't this how you made friends anyway? By talking? She sighed softly. It'd been too long since she'd had a friend.]

[center [h3 Follow?]]

[center [youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wRftKDyDjLg]]

[center [b Rex had avoided eye contact with the raven haired woman as she spoke. She answered him rather honestly. He wondered if his reckless fighting was too blame for this? That it attracted attention? Wait... Had he really barked at her if she was followed? Where did that come from? His face became flushed as he gripped his fist tightly gulping. She had told him she was gonna lay low. A realistic approach and it made sense their number and weapons were unknown. If Rex was alone he'd simply check it out. It was a wonder he survived as long as he had. He walked past her toward the direction of the noise on that note. Until.. She offered he come with her. He turned around blinking looking at her.]]

[center [b She'd invite the man that.. Really? What would he do? She was so forward and so... Strong. He couldn't even make eye contact and talk to others and here she was offering a stranger.. Could he? Follow her? Did he have the heart? The bravery to take her up on that offer? Would he be following her for the wrong reasons? Cause she was cute? Or cause she had a pretty face? Partly.. He shook his head flustered red. "God I'm so stupid.. It's the end of the world and your still acting like it's highschool.. Seriously Rex? Get a grip.." His fist tightened he decided maybe it was best he not follow her. He was almost gonna walk off before a thought crossed his mind. This area was dangerous and here he held her up. What if something happened to her? It'd be his fault.. More than that she.. Despite her rough exterior but.. She was a good person. He couldn't not lend a hand.]]

[center [+orange S-Sure.. I-I'll help anyway y-you want..]]

[center [b Was that coming off too strong?! He was a follower by heart but... He took to her side looking at the ground still. "What was he? A knight pledging his loyalty? He could have said that in a more "Smooth" way couldn't he? Oh damn it... Why couldn't he do this right?]]
  RR / ShieldHero- / 9d 2h 19m 38s
[center Raven bit the inside of her cheek. Now what? Should she just leave him there? Though it was cruel, and she missed the company of others, she didn't know him enough to trust him. As she was tossing her options around in her head, the sound of gunshots quickly pushed them away. Gripping her own, she looked up at him. Had she been followed? Not that she knew of. But you never knew in this world. [b "I won't lie; I can't say for sure. If I was, I didn't know about it."]]

[center She sighed and made her way past him. [b "Look, I'm not going to stand here and find out. If someone's coming, I'm finding a place to lay low."] She stopped and hesitated, thinking before she turned to him. [b "If you want to come with me, make up your mind now, because I won't wait for you."] And with that, she continued walking, not looking back at him. If he chose to follow, so be it. If not, then that was his choice. He certainly wouldn't be her problem.]

[center [h3 Take This?]]

[center [b Rex gripped the blade she offered back to him. He had placed it onto his side. For his strange choice in appearance and weaponry she seemed to take it all in stride. She had remained rather calm ordering him to stop stammering. She sounded frustrated, was she mad at the stunt he pulled? Or just his overall attitude? Did he do something wrong?]]

[center [+orange S-Sorry..]]

[center [b So now what? Would they go there own way? It couldn't hurt right? Maybe swap info? He wasn't sure what he was supposed to do. He gulped looking away from her. Before he could ponder it for long he heard gunshots in the distance. A skirmish? What was going on? Rex almost by instinct took a few steps toward the sound. Standing in front of Raven he hadn't realized how bold his stance was. His back was turned to her as he looked forward with a fierce look in his eye.]]

[center [+orange Is anyone following you?]]

[center [b He didn't stutter his blood was rushing and teeth began to grit. The worst crossed his mind. She seemed well armed and prepared and something about her.. Made her seem important. Though maybe it was bold to presume these people were following her track? Sometimes bandits would trail someone and wait for a chance to strike.]]
  ShieldHero- / 10d 45m 41s
[center Raven was a bit taken back by his words. She knew the apocalypse could drive people crazy. She'd seen it more times than she cared to admit. But this? This was a whole new brand. She wasn't even entirely sure what she was supposed to do. Shooting him where he stood and moving on with her miserable life would the easiest option. At the same time, however, he didn't seem like a threat. Not at the moment, at least, and that went against one of the rules she'd set her for herself. Even after everything she'd been through, she still followed her personal rules to a t. It was a miracle [i she] wasn't crazy. Or maybe she was. Who knew anymore?]

[center She finally sighed. Unless he was just a really good actor, there was no way he was a threat. Not to mention, if anyone was with him, they'd have struck by now. No group waited this long after putting a weapon down to take someone out. That was just stupid. In her opinion, at least.]

[center However, when he managed to swipe her gun, her guard went back up. Stepping back, she grabbed for the knife in her back pocket, wrapping her fingers around the handle. She was ready to pull it out and gut him, but stopped as she watched his next move. She quickly dropped her hand as she gripped the gun. Her mind was blank. This guy was definitely not right. She'd been expecting more from his actions. A fight would've been easier to predict than this.]

[center Shaking her head, she put the gun away and walked over to his sword, picking it up and holding it out to him. [b "Stop stammering. Just..take this."] No, he wasn't a threat. She was positive now. No threat would've stopped after that. An actual threat would've put her own bullet between her eyes, no questions asked.]

[center [b ~~Don't apologize! If there's something you want to do, do it! I won't get mad!~~]]

[center [h3 Confrontation]]

[center [b Rex had lifted his head blinking and tilting his head. His body was well protected by his equipment but his face was still a weak spot. That was part of why he had the blade.]]

[center [b Though accessing a combat situation was normally something Rex would do he couldn't help but blank a bit. He was focused on the social embarrassment that he had let something like this pass him by. With her firearms she seemed like she excelled well at long distance fighting. Something Rex himself wasn't too good at but this distance was more up his alley. She seemed really on edge but considering he almost hacked her apart he understood.]]

[center [b "If I wanted to kill you I'd have not sheathed my sword" would be the normal response to retracting an attack like that. Rex however? He had simply blanked out. He was almost in a trance staring at her long hair and eyes.]]

[center [+orange Beautiful..]]

[center [b He muttered before gasping and covering his mouth. Maybe he was quiet enough not to be heard? "Wow you almost hack up a girl than spout that?" sure he was bad at talking to people but this was a whole new terrible. Well he was exhausted and he hadn't talked to others in a long time. A blush sprawled across his face as he stammered struggling to find the words. He seemed rather unphased by her weapon aimed at him. He didn't care when his last fight would be as long as he went out swinging. He was more upset about the way he was stepping all over his toes. "She's gotta think I'm crazy yup.. Try to kill her. Take it back than.. What the hell" he took a deep breath gulping as he looked away trying to talk.]]

[center [+orange I-I.. I mistook you f-for one of those t-things. I-If I wanted.. W-Well.. Your things.. I.. I wouldn't have.. Well.. S-Stopped I-I guess?]]

[center [b He said unsure if what he said was socially acceptable. "What if she took that as a threat? It's just.. Tactically why would he let her get her guard up? For a complicated trap? Maybe a complex trap was more surefire? Rex wasn't sure he was more the type to solve his problems head on so he wasn't exactly sure. He was a very adaptive fighter and he had good instincts no doubt. However he was aware he was a bit simple minded when it came out to drawn out strategy or tactics. The fighter in him almost had a mind to react at her pointing her weapon in him. He had to stop himself from reacting on that feral instinct. Rex was best described an Awkward teenager with the heart of a viking. If that contradiction could make any since.]]

[center [b He had a few choices before him. Remove his weapon and throw it to the side. Perhaps that would look fishy? Another was more impulse and reckless. Despite her appearance anyone who wielded a weapon that freely Rex saw as another warrior. Petite or not, he was a short male in stature himself. 5'7 weighing in only at 138 pounds if someone judged by looks? One would never consider him to be a threat of any kind. The fact she hadn't underestimated him by that fact made him decide he wouldn't do the same to her. Maybe if the fight started at a more favorable range he'd even be outmatched who knows.]]

[center [b He decided to take a bit of a risk but this was the best way he felt he could do this. Except... He lacked any social confidence to do it in a way that seemed... Okay? Was there an okay way to do this? He sighed pulling the hilt of the sword and throwing the weapon to the side. It's entire sheath with sword in toe. Unarmed he began to turn around his arms raised. That was until he flipped to the side with an extreme acrobatic using the metal gauntlet he had to cover his face. He kicked her legs apart and the gun had gone off scratching across his cheek. If it wasn't for that gauntlet he'd be dead. Pulling the gun away he pulled it to the side. He knew she may have been armed past that but he pointed the weapon at her only for a moment before throwing it as well to the side. His reactions and acrobatics were on point. Maybe it'd even be something to be proud of except? The boy was only good at fighting he really didn't have any other talents. It was clear the way he held the gun? He wasn't comfortable with the weapon. He never learned how to work them and he was never going to for that matter.]]

[center [+orange S-Sorry.. I just... T-This way.. W-Well..]]

[center [b Say it Rex! "This way you know killing you isn't what I want. Just say something anything.."]]

[center [+orange Well.. If I wanted t-too.. Ya know.. I-I guess.. I-I.. Well... I'm sorry....]]

[center [b He whimpered out as he retrieved her weapon. He put it back in her arms. It seemed like a much better fit. She held it almost like it was an extension of herself. He found himself smiling slightly as a thought crossed him.]]

[center [+orange T-Though.. When I retracted my s-strike.. You could have done the s-same..]]

[center [b He was being a bit vague and he didn't mean to be. He just.. Wasn't good at talking to others. Long sentences or prolonged conversation? Was just another one of his many many weakness's. "She could have turned around and shot first asked questions later. Than his stupid reckless self wouldn't be here. It was clear she was a good but cautious person. He'd refuse to fight her even if that is what she wanted. He can't bring himself to cut someone with a good heart down or even die trying. He's already... He shook his head a bit almost as if to shake the thoughts out. He didn't go to retrieve his sword he had decided to let her decide what to do. He even took a steps back so he couldn't pull another stunt like that again. He'd leave the choice up to her.]]

[center [+orange I-I-I.. I travel a-a-alone...]]

[center [b He had almost sounded embarrassed with a hurt expression on his face. He didn't like to admit.. That he couldn't find himself a group.. Not since.. Well it was just a hard thing to admit that was all.]]


[center [h3 OOC]]

[center [b I'm sorry I took some liberty here it was more so to speed things up. However if you rather Rex not pull the stunt and find another route. I don't mind either so just let me know. I can change it rather easily.]]
  RR / ShieldHero- / 10d 17h 9m 41s
[center Raven was so lost in fault that she didn't hear the sound of footsteps until it was almost too late. Pulling her pistol from its holster, she spun to face her unknown acquaintance, aiming it at him. The only thing that kept her from pulling the trigger was the way he was acting.]

[center She watched as he sheathed his sword, slowly pointing the gun at the ground, but keeping it in her hand. [b "Can I help you?"] she asked, her voice cold. She didn't have time to deal with any bullshit. She certainly wasn't in the mood.]

[center Realzing that it could be a trap, she tensed and looked around. She didn't see or hear anyone else, but she'd learned early on that that didn't mean anything. [b "Are you alone? And before you answer, know that if you're lying, I won't hesitate to put you and your friends down."] And she meant it.]

[center [youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OXXtMO91Vh8]]

[center [b Rex had shuffled to his feet. Emotionally drained and covered in dirt full of aching bones. It was something he was used to. He saw himself as nothing but a rusting blade. One that would eventually bre-]]

[center [b Rex had shook his head with a long sigh he wasn't going to think. He had taken himself down the main street again. It was the most obvious place to be and as dangerous as that seemed? It was almost so unexpected survivors hadn't ambushed him often. The dead however were another case. Though taking down this path he saw.. A shape in the distance.]]

[center [b What was that figure? He drew his sword and ran quickly down the street. Huffing over his pained lungs the boy was still quick and before he could strike he saw the persons face. His blade inches from her arm... The ebony haired female. She had... A mystique to her Rex found himself staring caught awestruck.]]

[center [b He always had a weakness for.. Well.. He stammered a bit and realized his stance. He gulped sheathing his sword and bowing his head in apology. "What should he do? What should he say? He felt his face sweating. Socializing was... Never his strong suit. That was even harder with a.. Well with a pretty face. If anything that was by far his greatest weakness. What should he do? Walk away? What if that seemed fishy? Let her be? Dying didn't scare Rex but something as simple as embarrassing himself in front of a petite woman? Well it made the boy almost visibly crumble.]]
  RR / ShieldHero- / 11d 37m 38s
[center Digging a knife into one's head was easy. Taking it out, on the other hand, was not. Raven barely had enough time to yank the blade out of the unconsecrated head before another reached for her. Spinning on her heel, she buried the knife in its eye, pulling it out just as quickly. She kicked it in the chest to put some distance between them, stepping over the other ones body. She didn't have to worry about anymore. If she took the chance now, she could run. On the other hand...if she left this one alive, it could end up getting someone else. She sighed irritably and waited for it to get closer. Once it was within reach, she kicked its leg out from under it and quickly buried the knife into its head. Two less to worry about.]

[center Taking a deep breath, Raven kicked the body aside and began walking along the street again. She'd been on her feet since the break of dawn and knew she needed a place to rest soon. The only problem with that was that no place was safe. Even if she stopped to wat whatever she had left in her bag, there was no guarantee she'd be able to get out alive. She sighed. [b "That's just the world now..."] As sad as that was.]

[center Back before the world had gone to shit, Raven hadn't been a very social person. She had always been one to stay in her own space. However...with most of the world's population dead, she found she was beginning to miss having people around, even if it was just to annoy her. It was amazing how things could change.]

[center [h3 The Fool]]

[center [youtube http://sss.llzzz.plbrxwxeh.llfrp.se2.gsr.awhoer.net/watch?v=zj8O1Ohbisc]]

[center [b This was the tale of a young man, or rather a young boy. A boy who had taken to calling himself "Rex Rider" not for any particular reason. Except that it sounded "cool" to him.]]


[center [b Now despite that reasoning, the twenty-one-year-old male had no real confidence in himself. He had no particular set of skills being unemployed in the world of the living. He wasn't good at talking with others and he was even too shy to ever get his own drivers license. Twenty-one and the boy never even drove. There was a lot about the world he didn't know or understand being a closet otaku. There was only one talent he had...]]

[center [h3 The Beginning of the End]]

[center [b Rex had grown up surrounded by violence the only thing he loved to do in the outside world was to fight. He and his best friend would spend hours sparring and even hitting one another with sticks. His grandmother had even paid for his fencing and kendo classes at his hometown so that he would make friends. Though that, however, was a bust as weak as he was emotional he could sure as hell could take a beating. Though he looked to be timid helpless and weak. Though since the outbreak he had given a lot of effort to his appearance. Before essentials even! Finding bright orange-gold eye contacts. Even going through the work to bleach his hair snow white. Finding durable clothes to put on his Graphene bulletproof vest. While he and his two closest friends helped him find a nice sword piece. ]]


[center [b Rex was walking in an abandoned building as he had his blade slung over his shoulder. A European longsword Rex found that most swords broke after hitting too many bones. That the real world wasn't exactly like "anime" it took time on how he found this blade. This blade could withstand a hell of a lot of punishment. A glutton for punishment.. sort have like Rex in that sense.]]


[center [+orange Where are any biters when you need them?]]

[center [b The boy said as he walked down the hall slamming the wall with the blade. Causing a loud ring he would shout but he was too embarrassed any humans may hear him. Yes even in this bleak outbreak he was incredibly socially awkward.]]

[center [b Walking forward going in step by step he rubbed the back of his head ruffling his hair as he held his stomach in pain. There could be two reasons for the pain in his stomach.]]


[center [b Reason One: Rex did not stack up any food or really... anything. The bulletproof gear and the blade were all he had on him. This wasn't a foolish mistake, however. This was simply because he couldn't care less if he died or not. Though he'd rather die on the battlefield than of starvation.]]

[center [b Reason Two: Rex didn't avoid combat and this has resulted in many fights. This did burn calories faster and pointlessly risk his life, however... he learned that bulletproof vest doesn't actually mean bulletproof. Getting shot when wearing this gear still hurt as a blunt force strike would. He had just picked a fight with five travelers. coming close to being put down himself he was shot in the chest and stomach plenty of times. This had not pierced his gear but causing some blunt damage, however. He smiled softly as he began to think of the fight that had taken place that day.]]

[center [h3 The Fight]]

[center [b The shy boy walked down the road with his blade slung over his shoulder as he let out a huge sigh. It had been too long without anything to do. He'd shout out to cause a ruckus but he was too afraid to make a scene. One of the things he'd hate most is having those of the living giving him "weird looks" even nowadays this bothered him. He remembered doing anything mundane before "it" happened. Going to get groceries for his mother. Or talking to employee's for help he was terrible at instructions and it involved even more talking. Every time he'd feel like he'd just pass out he couldn't do anything. He hated going outside wearing heavy clothing helped. He worried a lot about having a nice style that it would hide the fact he was so hopeless. He wore hoodies even in the summer with fingerless gloves. Things he found really cool but this backfired it just drew more attention. Causing fights at school even and since he was so poor at explaining himself people just decided he was.. a prick. It was strange his mind was wandering here. The idea of others disliking him really bothered him he shook and his heart sank just thinking of it now.]]

[center [+orange What am I even thinking about... Ugh maybe I should just take another nap.]]

[center [b Course as soon as he said that there were two men ahead fighting off a small group of walkers. Rex liked to avoid saying or even thinking of the word "Zombie" he thought it was silly but still, it was the same either way.]]

[center [+orange P-Perfect! My chance to break the ice!! I get to finally play the hero!!!]]

[center [b He didn't have to worry about being judged I mean they would appreciate him, either way, right? He threw his blade in the air ready to boast the way he had always wanted. This was the third time in his life he ever got to do this. His first since everything has started. Catching the blade he began to shout.]]

[center [+orange Hey! Ugly!! You want something to eat? Then come on, snack on this!!!]]

[center [b After his rather cheesy entrance he clanked his blade on the street running forward, he was rather quick on his feet he always was the fastest runner at School. Though before he could charge in three more men popped up shooting the walkers down with double barrel shotguns as the first two started firing now with two pistols. It took a bit but Rex watched, they had them surrounded so if he got involved he'd surely be shot. Even wearing bulletproof gear it would surely hurt and a headshot would be fatal. He sighed and walked forward sad he didn't get to help so as they cleaned house he decided to just go up ahead and say nothing.]]

[center [+red Hey! Kid!! Yeah, hold it! Give us your supplies!!!]]

[center [b Rex stopped and turned around, it was rather hard to tell he had any bullet proof gear on at all. He held his thick blade in front of his face. Flat side it covered MOST of his face. He had learned to do this when fighting those who used firearms, this, however, was much more dangerous than fighting a bunch of flesh biters.]]

[center [+blue Who do you think you are?! The last samurai?! Dude this ain't no Tom Cruise movie okay? Don't be stupid and don't make us waste the ammo on you. Even if it's just one bullet.]]

[center [+orange U-Umm.. I-I'm not really using a katana... I mean samurai didn't use European longswords. They used the traditional katana.. when it came to blades anyhow. They had many other weapons t-though.]]

[center [b Rex exhaled, that was so stupid! Why did he randomly say that?! So not cool! An anime character would have said something cool like "yeah we'll see!" or something cocky and badass. His legs started shaking as the men laughed walking closer weapons raised. He wasn't really scared of the threat, he really couldn't care less if he was to die here and now. It was the fact they were laughing at him. It felt like school again that one weird otaku, the sad part was he had trouble even talking to other otaku's! He shook his head, why was he thinking of that right here? He should be more focused on the fight before him. Okay yeah.. relax just focus on the fight. After this, I'll never see them again, either way, even if I die. No need to be embarrassed, or so he thought but he was still embarrassed nonetheless.]]

[center [+red Uhh, okay weirdo look I can see your legs are shaking, think just cause I can't shoot your head your goddamned superman? Well, Mr know it all. If you wanna correct people do it in hell!!]]

[center [b The man cocked his gun aiming at Rex's chest. Damn it! That was cool! That was a cool line!! Rex banged his head on the blade, the guy firing two shots hitting Rex's chest. Thud thud!! They made impact. As he fell over, though they did not pierce his skin. Rex laid on the ground face forward his stomach on the street.]]

[center [+red Dumbass, how did he make it this long? I shouldn't have wasted any bullets. Pretty city boys with their crazy dyes must fuck with their brain am I right boys? Well I shot him, yall strip him!]]

[center [b He said as he motioned for the three shotgun-wielding men to handle it. Placing their guns on their back they walked forward to Rex as they got on their knee's to pick him up.]]

[center [+orange Gotcha now!]]

[center [b Rex yelled as he turned around slashing through all three of their legs. However, the third one only having his legs slashed and not cleaved off. Rex hand springing up stabbed the man through his chest, it was easy flipping up before he could reach his shotgun. The two men with pistols began shooting wildly. The two shots earlier didn't truly kill or would have even knocked Rex down. Yeah, they hurt moving at such high-speed ramming into his chest the blunt damage stung. However, his protective gear saved him as always. The men on the ground were in shock and in pain but if they recollected themselves could draw and shoot Rex from behind with two shooting at Rex now from the front. He used the man he stabbed into as a human shield. Thank god, because being stabbed through the chest does not INSTANTLY kill you as fast you would think. He'd have time to grab his shotgun and blow Rex's head off. Course the man would die anyway. Still, that's why in movies killing a man in one slash was unrealistic they'd live a little longer before actually kicking the bucket. Though with bullets pounding into the guy wildly he was dead surely quick enough. They had emptied their clips of each pistol into the body. Rex saw that the two on the ground up and shotguns were drawn. How?! So quick? With missing legs? Are these guys paramilitary? Marines? Rex withdrew his blade and turned to block as they both fired one shooting his stomach lifting him inches off the ground as his gear deflected the bullet he coughed. The second hitting his blade scraping his cheek as he bled his heart began to race. He almost had his blade blown out of his hands. He's lucky his finger wasn't blown off. He needed the thick gloves to be fingerless however to have a better feel on his blade. He then quickly slashed the two legless men cutting them down as he turned around the two remaining gunmen reloading their clips and firing again. Rex held his blade in front of his face full on being shot by the clips guarding his chest with his arm.]]


[center [+orange Haaa!!]]

[center [b He screamed out in pain and adrenaline as the two stood shocked.]]

[center [+red What the fu--]]

[center [b Rex ran forward bleeding due to all the blunt damage was done to his body horizontal slashing from left to right the man backing up his chest slash Rex dashed in non-stop the man drawing his gun to Rex's face.]]

[center [+orange Too... slow!!]]

[center [b He slashed two more times at the agile man only the edge of his blade scraping him as he fired barely missing Rex's head. Rex span 360 building up momentum as he then lopped the man's head off. He turned to look at the other as he saw all of his dead comrades.]]

[center [+red S-Shit kid!]]

[center [b He took off firing at Rex as Rex put his guard back up the bullets hitting his blade and body.]]

[center [+orange .. Phew!]]

[center [b Rex sat down realizing the guy was long gone, well it was time to see what these guys had. Well besides guns anyway, Rex really didn't know how to work a gun. He'd take one from time to time. He had no idea how to fill a magazine or how to reload he knew to cock the gun and shoot. He knew that much from the movies he was rather hopeless. He sat down taking a breath. If his entire attire wasn't built from sturdy graphene he'd be dead. He wished he could have paid back the people who helped him get his hands on it. Shaking his head he focused on the task at hand.]]

[center [+orange I could take a few, maybe give them to somebody who could use them. I don't know... I'm not exactly making friends.]]

[center [b He sighed, he had hoped this was a chance to save somebody. Instead, he ended up barely protecting his own life. He was disappointed that only five guys took that much outta him. He honestly thought he was stronger than that than again he liked to compare the expectations of anime to real life. He laid back remembering some of his more.. finer moments than this reckless mess. Or at least, finer to him.]]

[center [h3 Present Day]]

[center [b Rex chuckled a bit he wasn't thinking that fighting simply five people would be so hard, however, this was the real world. Things didn't play out the way they did in his head. Guess those were his limits. He really hadn't matured much the last three years had he?]]

[center [b Strange Rex had taken life so carelessly and fought these beasts without growing sick to his stomach. Yeah it was a bit hard at first but to him, it was all a game and after he had lost his two closest friends nothing felt real to him. He felt like the walking dead himself as if he was moving but dead inside. He didn't feel the real guilt of taking another's life not if they were willing to fight him so crudely. In his mind, they were just bad people he never really thought that maybe they were just doing what it took to survive. Rex never thought of himself as a bad person he always wanted to be the hero. He's saved others lives before but sadly... they always ended up dying. However what broke his train of thought was bumping into something. Hmm... two legs standing... and clothed.]]

[center [+orange H~Hello I'm sorry I!]]

[center [b However it wasn't a man he was talking to. It was a woman though he'd guess the real important detail would be is she wasn't alive anymore. He stepped back drawing his blade as he saw the premise crawling with these walkers.]]

[center [youtube http://sss.llzzz.plbrxwxeh.llfrp.se2.gsr.awhoer.net/watch?v=2pZ-UpjtlXY]]

[center [b He scoffed holding his blade by his waist gripping it with two hands as he smirked. This was all he enjoyed now starting pointless battles even if he didn't know he'd make it out of them. He was always cocky in sparring with his friends or playing video games. Course it wasn't really bravery alone it was really just not caring anymore.]]

[center [b One thing he loved about fighting the dead was he could try whatever his otaku mind thought of. While not being laughed at, he was horrible at verbal confrontation. He'd get nervous when trash talked even by people he could handle hell even if they were unarmed. He wouldn't show how much he enjoyed this but fighting soulless corpses? Helped the pre-fighting jitters. Course once his blood got pumping it wouldn't really matter living or dead. Looking through his dyed white hair his piercing eyes he charged forward.]]

[center [+orange You want some?! Take this!]]

[center [b He said as the slow-moving foes began to surround him. Running forward he cleaved one's head off. His sturdy thick long-sword could handle a lot more than most cheap made blades. He tried using any old sword just like in "anime" and realized they broke a lot. Or would get stuck in his targets. In fact, if it wasn't for his old friends he would never have gotten this fine piece of craftsmanship. Course this has already been covered. Rex was one to think the same thoughts a few times. That and it was easy to be reminded of how well made this blade was!]]

[center [+orange Ha!]]

[center [b He turned around cleaving another in half in a fell swoop, he was getting the hang of it. Another from the left he turned to dodge kicking it down. He would have slashed but he kept his guard up for the relentless numbers coming in. Life wasn't like an anime or some old Bruce Lee movie things didn't surround you and wait for their turn to attack you. He'd handle that one in a bit, he hopped backward stabbing one from behind him running forward with a helm buster sort of slash cutting the walkers head in half. Another ran forward biting Rex's hand. Luckily he was wearing leather gloves and with a metal backhand guard smacked the walker off. While stabbing another's head and turning to kick the one getting back up. He was moving rather quickly to handle each and every one as he jumped and danced around he was a natural. True he had sword fighting experience but a natural at.. fighting for real. In a real scenario, no longer for fun. Course to him this was much more fun than any of that was. He started grinning slashing as he ran no longer caring if he hit their heads. Hack! Slash!! Cut!!! He knew a good trick was to keep running around and moving. That wasted stamina quickly sure but Rex could take it, didn't matter if he couldn't anyhow. If he died anywhere he'd want it to be on the battlefield. Though not every slash killed them having arms slashed off or your organs falling out made them either slower less dangerous or more brittle to be later finished off. Not that Rex was trying to be effective, one was farther ahead than the rest he ran up placing his blade on his side. Punching the zombie in a combination. A straight to stumble it, dashing in with a left and right hook than a speeding uppercut. As he spun 360 degrees into a haymaker knocking the brittle walkers head clean off.]]

[center [+orange Always wanted to do that!]]

[center [b He beamed smiling, as he drew his blade with one hand running in as he slid slicing another's leg off. As he used a handspring to flip back onto his feet. He held the blade than backhanded with both hands running and cleaving through several nonstop it was amazing the blade could take that much punishment. As he screamed out full force, despite his size he had a decent amount of brute force to work with. Though it was grueling and long he eventually took each and every down. This fight wasn't as "pretty" as he wanted it to be. He got sloppy there was too many to be as flashy as he had wanted to be.]]

[center [b He looked around counting]]

[center [+orange twenty-six? Man, that sounds so small but! Huff huff..]]


[center [b Though that wasn't too bad it sounded like such a small number to him with the millions and millions of these things that must be in the world. He knew that two men with automatic weapons could probably do that with less effort huh? Still it just... wasn't his style. Not that he had the know-how anyway.]]

[center [b More poured out from the rooms cutting his thought out. They began to walk at him there was even more than before. Rex held his blade huffing with his lack of food and sleep he looked forward. Even at full condition, he'd be feeling the heat that was for sure.]]

[center [+orange Huff... tsk come and get it!]]

[center [b Despite his words he ran away from the creatures running up the building's stairs as they began to pursue running to the third-floor gathering more and more of their attention he swung and hacked at the air. As he panted they closed in and he stepped backward. He looked in front and behind him seeing a broken window. He sheathed his blade on his back as he put two fingers on his forehead with a big grin.]]

[center [+orange See you later!!]]

[center [b He jumped off as his heart sank into his stomach seeing how high up he was! Heights he hated heights!! Holding his arms in a cross block X his body slammed into tree branch after tree branch. His armor served as little guard but it still hurt like hell as his arms felt like they were crushed. His shoulders popping and everything ringing as he hit the ground. The creatures following clumsily smashing their heads on the ground. Though before he could even see straight or even hear he sat up he felt like he was going to keel over and die right here and right now. Seeing a car crashed into a tree and a man with his head smashed through the window he was carrying a... uhh Rex scratched his head. Rex just knew it was a gun and though the car was still running! An automatic weapon and a car! He was saved!! ... NOT Rex didn't know how to drive and had no interest to drive or use a gun. He didn't know jack shit about either, to be honest. He was very naïve and many would consider him to be damn near useless. Though in the car Rex thought to himself that there was a sweet aroma. No way?! This deep into shit and this guy has... well kept not rotten.... fucking McDonalds?! With tons of booze to that would make sense. Drinking and driving the last thing anyone would think would kill you nowadays. Ripping the plastic lids off the containers getting into the food he ate the cold (stale) flavorless fries munching on the hard-like but still chewy nuggets. As he looked for sandwiches he found. mc chicken wrappers! His favorite food!! He pulled the wrapper to see it had... a mc double.]]

[center [+orange ... Mother fuck-]]

[center [b Rex sighed banging his head on the metal door of the car as he sat on the driver seat. Beggers can't be choosers and with that, he grabbed a water bottle with a gulp. Ack! The water felt hot as hell but he needed something, right? Eating the cold mcdoubles with the water his pain subsided were he could finally hear himself think clearly. He sighed his body still sore as fuck. He had closed the door locking each of the doors. Sleeping next to a corpse would be weird he thought to himself. He grabbed the backpack off of the man tangling it and ripping it out. As he saw gun mags for the gun the man had.]]

[center [+orange AK-47? What the heck I don't get these bullet measurements.]]

[center [b He grunted keeping the bag of mags knowing someone would be happy to have them. He just knew... not him. With that, the boy began to nod off with a full stomach. It was times like these he missed having friends to talk with. Taking some pain pills in the car he sighed lost in thought. He wasn't good at making friends even before this, though. He still remembers the strange way he met his best friend...]]

[center [+green Huff huff... you're lucky I went easy on you.]]

[center [+brown Dude, stop with that lame tough guy act. Just shut the fuck up and pay me back all right? Come on Vincent do you like me and my boys pounding your face in every day?]]

[center [b The man with glasses struggled to get up as he coughed feeling blood on his lip.]]

[center [+green Huff huff.. for what? I don't even really know you..]]

[center [+brown Oh? But you know my bitch Serah, don't you? Bro you owe me for trying to get some of MY ass.]]

[center [b Vincent hit the ground as he stumbled on his feet panting.]]

[center [+green She's not yours, she won't ever be yours. Tsk.. this is starting to feel like a cliché manga.]]

[center [+brown Oh my fucking god, dude just give me what I need all right?]]

[center [b Though, at that moment a boy came rushing in.]]

[center [pic https://i.pinimg.com/originals/b6/c6/fa/b6c6fae8423a1539488048e88dcf84bf.jpg.]]

[center [b Swinging with a baseball bat he knocked a few out a few of the men harassing Vincent.]]

[center [i Dude! He's fucking insane! I didn't come to get my kneecaps fucked!! Fuck you, dude, I'm out.]]

[center [b The man's friends left as "Rex" the timid brown haired boy that had yet to really be called Rex. Stopped the "lead" from running off.]]

[center [+orange Man to man, you and me.]]

[center [b Rex threw the bat and put his fist up looking at the guy who held his chest in relief. Being rather built and much taller he smirked.]]

[center [+brown Oh boy, now you gone fucked up.]]

[center [b The tall man said leaning in punching Rex with a hook then a left jab with a rousing straight. Despite his unrefined words, the man had some form. Rex stood dazed as he bled from his nose. Swinging wildly as he missed a few times blocking one strike. Rex held the guy's shirt head-butting him. Rex clumsily fell on top of the guy knocking him down as Rex punched him over and over and over again. The man helpless to defend himself reached out.. for the bat. Rex stood up hopping back. As the large brute swung wildly at Rex. CRACK. One swing hitting Rex's shoulder. Rex's left arm fell as he laughed.]]

[center [+brown What the fu--]]

[center [b He swung again Rex chuckling weakly using his broken arm as a meat shield. He shifted to guard with his arm he could no longer feel pulling his right hand back into a haymaker.]]

[center [+orange Here's a one-way ticket to hell! All aboard!!]]

[center [b Rex (Cheesily) said decking the brute across the face as he knocked him to ground the blunt force of the cement knocking him cold. He reached his broken arm out weakly to Vincent.]]

[center [b Rex wondered how Vincent did that, talked of manga so proudly talked so cocky so easily . As soon as those words left Rex's mouth. He wondered, did they make sense? Did he say it just to say it? He must have sounded like an idiot saying things like that.]]

[center [+orange I-I'm sorry I...]]

[center [+green Dude! That was awesome!! You really saved my ass, I didn't know they were hiding heroes at this school. Where do I sign up?]]

[center [b Rex blinked, the way Vincent talked it was like.. nothing he had ever seen. I mean he had, but of course.. that was only in....]]

[center [+green Anime.]]

[center [+orange Huh?! What?]]

[center [+green Do you watch it? I mean, of course, we should take you to the hospital but do you watch anime? Maybe we could go to my house and hang out. It's the least I could do ya know Mr hero?]]

[center [+orange M-My name is "blank", not Mr. Hero, I-I love anime! I am a huge fan! E-Ever watched Tokyo Ghoul? Shakugan No Shana? Angel Beats?]]

[center [b Vincent laughed.]]

[center [+green Haha, no but let's get on to that then huh? "Blank" huh..? Hmm.. kinda basic for a guy like you I think. The names Vincent! Nice to meet you!!]]

[center [b Rex laughed a bit as they walked side by side to the hospital.]]

[center [+orange So who's Serah? Is she your girlfriend?]]

[center [+green N-No I-I-I were just friends man! She's a real cutie, though! I should tell her about you saving my ass. She isn't good at making friends. Then again I'm not either she is my only friend. Well.. her and you of course.]]

[center [+orange M-Me..?]]

[center [+green Yeah! You're dreaming if you think you can show some wicked moves like that and not teach me! You're stuck with me pal!]]


[center [h3 Later That Year]]

[center [pic https://i.pinimg.com/originals/b6/c6/fa/b6c6fae8423a1539488048e88dcf84bf.jpg]]


[center [b With the panting of cold hair, there "Rex" shivered his hair it's natural color so were his eyes. The meek boy looked at his best friend.]]

[center [+orange C-Come on! We shouldn't be here Vince! We need to go!! Her parents would kill her and call the cops if they saw us at her window. We could just.. I don't know text her? Call her? Skype? She has her cell and her computer. Let's wait till--]]

[center [pic http://elif37.clghyldqwduw.llqhw.se2.gsr.awhoer.net/fs70/f/2014/059/e/1/anime_boy_render_by_kiritowaifu-d78eg9u.png]]

[center [+green Dude! Chill!! If you say wait till she's ungrounded again I am going to kill you. You know her dads a good for nothing 24/7 pissed off drunk. I mean do you even know why she got grounded?]]

[center [b "Rex" hid his face and sighed muttering]]

[center [+orange N-No but we could get in trouble..]]

[center [+green Dude I love you, but if you don't wanna step in then fine. I miss the hell outta her I don't know about you but this is killing me. I'd prefer the three amigo's but I can't make you come. Remember that one time you punched her dads shit in? That's the "blank" I'd like here right now. I like that guy, if I could I know I would have. Hell, I woulda tried if you didn't beat me to it! Touching her like that-- Agh, forget it just go.]]

[center [b "Rex" sighed as he looked at Vince, Vince's words were harsh but as soon he said them he dragged "Rex" along. Vince loved Rex way too much to leave him behind. Rex to shy to keep saying no went along with it. As Vince knocked at her window. Rex was thinking "yeah he punched him but he almost went to jail, like he's about to right now!"]]

[center [+green Serah! Hey, Serah wake up! Hello WAKE UP!!]]

[center [h3 Wake Up]]

[center [youtube http://sss.llzzz.plbrxwxeh.llfrp.se2.gsr.awhoer.net/watch?v=P9chqKfcS7s]]

[center [b Rex had awoken in the car jumping up with tears in his eyes. He then began to vomit in the car looking down at the puke it... didn't look like the food he had eaten earlier. Human... flesh?]]

[center [b Rex was covered in blood as he stood up shocked as it hit him. This was the blood he had from all of his fighting before. Wait no... Rex held his head screaming.]]

[center [+orange No way no way no way no way. No no, not again.]]

[center [b He rocked back and forth as he puked again seeing a finger in the vomit hardly even chewed. He had done it again his brain... it shut off reality to him. He remembered the fights today and though they had happened the same way. everything else was not. The not having a drop of blood on him in the real world! Finding McDonalds in this shithole?! His brain created an escape for him. He had instead eaten parts of the corpse in the car. He checked the bag seeing there was still mags. Thank god... that really happened. He started to break down sobbing wondering what had happened today and what had not. Tears streaming down his face endlessly as he sobbed and sobbed.]]

[center [b He kicked the door open he felt he would puke again but he'd keep whatever food inside he could. Food... he just thought of that man as real food. With so much missing least his stomach still had contents. He wiped his face of the blood and his tears as he screamed out to the world. This empty dead world he might as well screamed to the endless void itself.]]


[center [b He didn't stop as he shouted relentlessly half cry and half a roar. As if he was telling the world "Fuck you" he started to punch the tree as he screamed banging his head against it. Screaming more and more he could be heard probably all mile around but he didn't care he just didn't.]]


[center [+orange Vincent... Serah I wish you were here!!]]

[center [b He held himself crying as he fell to his knees. His brain had tricked him and he realized the lives he had taken today. The real scenes weren't so bright. The men didn't appear so coarse and callous true they had attacked him. They were like him though they needed food and even if Rex had none they would...]]

[center [+orange Consume me...]]

[center [b The hunger in those humans eyes the tears they were just like him. They didn't say anything rude at all! Rex said those crazy cocky lines outta nowhere!!! There were never even harsh to him. They just had to eat. Just like the man he had eaten. There was no any other food to be found it was scarce and rare these days. So when you can't beat these creatures you join them? No Rex was a hero, right? The awkward kind hero? Or was he just a monster. He didn't know... did he just killed men who wanted to live. Something he didn't even want to do. He had no good reason to fight he didn't want to live that part was true. He just wants to die a good death.]]

[center [+orange Like in some stupid fucking anime..]]

[center [b He muttered to himself he was hardly making any sense anymore he didn't know what was going on. What had really happened he... wait!? He pulled his blade off his back and looked at his outfit.]]

[center [+orange Thank god... your real. You're real you're real you're real your real you're real.]]

[center [b He started laughing screaming at the top of his lungs "YOUR REAL" he swung his blade at the air. Handspringing side from side, seeing the cracks in the bark. His agility his strength his blade. That was real... what else was? The fact he killed five men who wanted to live just so he could find a good death. Just to end his pain and suffering.]]


[center [b With that Rex stood on the road looking off to the distance as he sighed.]]

[center [+orange What's the point?]]

[center [b He sighed falling backward on to the road. Raising his blade up as he looked into the blade's reflection to see his own face. Just to take a good long look at what he was now. Rex Rider, tsk he may have looked different with dyed hair. His contacts and his clothes but he was the same kid. Nothing's changed if anything he was even more hopeless now.]]
