Reunion

    --We go back to one year before the Advent of Athena.

    The summer in Greece has little rain fall. If in a month it rained for three days, it rained a lot.
    Far away in the mountains of Athens is where Sanctuary is built. It is very dry there, the wind would
swipe up the dirt flinging it here and there.
    As usual in the hill of Acropolis, tourists are thronging but Sanctuary, however, from the Times of the Myths, has had a divine aura around it that has made it unapproachable for people.
    In every few years,  a reporter would try to seek out this mystic place called Sanctuary, however they return home with no rewards.
    The truth is, the Pope who prevents people from invading in Sanctuary, has created few levels of defensive fields around Sanctuary.
    Some tourists who happened to wander near the field, they can't continue on. If they force it, they get bounced off. When they forget about the incident, they would be brought back away.
    The Pope's powerful Cosmo generate these barriers which look like sacred seven colors, people have called that 'God's Rainbow.' From the Times of the Gods, many have been encouraged by the presence of Sanctuary, a place where many have admired.
    A youth like the wind, has entered Sanctuary bypassing the defensive fields with no trouble. In the shining sun, the wind is blowing the youth's hair like the hair has a life of its own.  His eyes does not seem to reflect his true age. They hold a sharp light in them. The way he carries himself, he must be a Saint.
    "My old home, Sanctuary......didn't change at all."

    The youth sees in the center of Sanctuary is the Fire Clock.  The Fire Clock is facing the 12 temples where Gold Saints is suposed to protect each one. It is known as The 12 Temples, it also has a correlation with each of the Gold Saints' constellations.
    "The 10th temple is Capricorn....", the youth says reminiscing.[Makatsu Kyuu - Sharpening Goat Temple]
    The youth then changes his gaze to see the Pope's Palace and Athena Temple.
    (Athena has been born already by now....?), thinking about this important issue, he turns his gaze forward. When he was still a trainee, this is where he gave his sweat of blood, the Training Site and beside it, the
Coloseum.
    2 years ago, it is in the Coloseum he gambled for the honor, the proof of the Saint, the Cloth. Defeating the last rival, those fierce scenes come back to him vividly.
    This youth was the winner. When he is reminded of how he won, he feels very excited.
    (That time was very lucky..... but if it is now, I will win based on my strength), his confidence is not false. In these 2 years, this youth has been training hard in the Pyrenees Mountains of Spain. He has begun to believe in himself. It is there that his unshakeable confidence was born.
    The youth takes a deep breath and holds it.  He concentrates and closes his eyes, uniflying his Chi. From all his body comes his Cosmo, Cosmo coming out fast like ice caps melting into water, horses just coming out of the gates in a race. All of his Cosmo has come out in one swoop.
    The youth's eyes slowly opens.  He decides that his target would be the top of Star Hill behind Athena Statue. It must be at least 3 km away....
    "Uoohhhh!!!!!", in an instant, he launches his right punch toward Star Hill. The power of the blow cuts through the air. It creates a noise, flying at light speed. The air is like crying. The power of the blow does not wane. It arrives at Star Hill.  It finally hits the house where the Pope does his astrology. A trail or two of smoke can be seen rising up. Seeing this, the youth is not satisfied but in the next moment, he feels a magnificent Cosmo behind him.
    (Uhm, this Cosmo is...), he turns with a smile on his face.
    It is Sagittarius Saint Aiolos, smiling with affection and love.
    "Aiolos!"
    "Shura! When did you come back?"
    The youth who is called Shura does not answer and hugs Aiolos.
    Aiolos hugs back and tenderly says,  "Shura, you raise your level of Cosmo, no?"
    "Can't compare to Aiolos's."
    "No, it might be on the same level as mine."
    "Wh, what...! Same as Aiolos's....." Shura finally shows his age, grinning.
    "In the 12 Temples, the 10th Temple, protecting Capricorn Temple,  Capricorn Gold Saint Shura has finally returned home. Congratulations Shura!", Aiolos extends his hand.
    "Thank You, Aiolos!", Shura holding Aiolos's hands with thankfulness.
    Holding Shura's hand, Aiolos becomes silent. He can sense through Shura's hard training, his hand is like steel.
    (Th, this hand!! Can't fathom it would  be trained to this level.... Outstanding, Shura....)
    "Aiolos, what is it?", this wakes Aiolos from his reverie.
    "Shura, Capricorn Temple is perfect now!!"
    "Aiolos!!"
    Aiolos looks at Shura like his own brother and nods.
    "Having heard Aiolos say that makes me very happy. I always look at Aiolos as my goal. No matter what the pain, I took it....."
    "Shura, I now totally forget that you are 4 years younger than me. Come, let's go and visit The Pope. Tonight we will have a long conversation."
    Shura smiles with joy because he has gotten the recognition of Sagittarius Gold Saint Aiolos.
