Shinobu felt the coldness get under her skin, getting to her heart.
"Will i freeze to death?"
She was having a fever, and she was cold and warm at the same time. Shinobu was hungry too.
It felt like forever she had gotten anything to eat.
"If I had one wish left in this world, I would wish to die, pass over to the other side."
She tried to not think about the others at Hinata.
"I can't take this anymore.."
Shinobu folded her hands, and prayed to let this pain come to an end, one way or another.
"Dear god(or Buddha, or whatever they praise in Japan/Asia) please let me go to heaven, let me leave this painful life on earth."
Shinobu had been ill, for quite a while now. And she wasn't getting better. Was this His punishment?
"What did I do wrong? Please tell me!" Shinobu thought about it.
"Was it the last wash of clothes, was it the last thing I cleaned? Or was it my love for Keitaro?!"
Someone opened the door, in a hurry.
Shinobu wanted to say something, but the words wouldn't come.
"Here is your food, this is dinner, so you won't get more today until 10 o'clock, OK?"
"Um, yeah, may i ask one question?"
"What happened to Sihozu? Where is he?" I haven't seen him around for quite a while."
"Oh, you mean the guy that brought you here?"
"He is dead, it's been 2 days ago now." Shinobu felt the world froze.
Sihozu had often visited her, to make her less lonely.
Sihozu got in a fight with one of the other's on the ship, and the other person he was pissing off, shot him in the chest.
The man didn't look at Shinobu while he said it, but he didn't have sorrow in his voice. He left.
Shinobu felt she was someone else, she fell/sat down on the floor, not moving.
The world was gone, and she was the only one left.
They had taken away the one thing in her life now that actually mattered for her! "If I only had a gun in my hand,I would shoot myself..."Shinobu said out loud.
She remembered one of their conversations....
"Sihozu, when did you come here?"
"Since i was 5 years old, its my father that rules this organization, and im supposed to take over when he dies."
"And do you want to take over for him?"
"NO, I'd rather die than taking his place, for all i care, he can rot in hell!
Shinobu kept listening.
"I hate him, I always have, and i always will. If there was one thing I could do to make up for my father, I would let you go, I would release you from this place."
"What about you then?"
"Don't think about me, Shinobu, my fate is sealed. But that doesn't mean your fate is to die here. I'd rather see myself die, than you dying in the hands of my father!"
Shinobu and Sihozu shared a kiss, and a hug.
"I promise i will do anything I can to get you out of here, that's a promise...and I wont break it.
Remember that, I'm always here for you. I hope you can forgive me. I would give you my life to make up for it."
Shinobu sobbed, she let everything out.
Sihozu was the only person there, that actually treated her life a actual human being.
And not as an caged animal!
Shinobu looked at herself in the broken mirror. She looked like a mess, her eyes were red, her nose were sore.
And she had a headache.
Everything that she had left to live for,was gone. Revenge time. She would revenge Sihozu's life. Somehow, someway...
