| It is late at
night in Sanctuary. The sky is filled with shining,
glittering stars, beautiful as
an angel. Holding a glass cup reflecting the star's
light, sitting on a chair in the porch, Shura asks Aiolos,"Aiolos,
the Saint Saga, what kind of man
"Saga? ... Well, he is a person
who does not talk about himself much.... Nobody....maybe even The Pope
does not know what Saga truly is
like. That is why it is very hard
to see Saga's thinking. But I do see,
Saga is hiding some kind of shadow..."
"Hmm......" In Shura's mind, he
sees the mysterious eyes of Saga. As he is thinking about this, again,
he feels from somewhere a challenging cosmos.
"Hmm!" Aiolos felt it too.
"It is that, Aiolos! The cosmos
I just felt is that!"
"Shura, Go!" Aiolos's face changed,
and jumped up.
"Ah?" Shura does not know what
is going on.
Aiolos runs as fast as he can.
"Shura, The Pope is in danger!!"
Aiolos runs at the direction
of The Pope's Temple. (Damn, still not
as fast as Aiolos.......) Using
super-human speed of Golden Saints, both of them in an instant, pasts the
flights of stairs. Not even taking one breath, they arrive at The Pope's
Temple and they see Ares using his own body as a shield to protect The
Pope, taking blows from the assassin.
Ares is still a Silver Saint.
He is not weak but Ares's whole body is
hurt, what is surpising is the
assassin has no wounds. Could it be that the assassin is more powerful
than a Silver Saint? The assassin is wearing a mask, hiding his idenity.
Shura shouts at the assassin,"Who
are you!? You stupid idiot would dare come to
The Pope's temple and attack him, speak your name!"
".........", the assassin does
not say a word.
At that time, Ares say something,"You,
you .... are...?!"
Shura asks Aiolos,"Seen his armor
"No, this is my first time I have
seen something like that"
The armor of the assassin is totally
different than the Saint's Cloths.
(It looks like fish scales......),
The assassin still does not answer
but The Pope replies for him. "That is Poseidon's Marina's Scales"
"Marina! Scales?!" Shura first
time has heard about Marinas.
"That Scales was created by the
"That means, you are sent here
The assassin still does not give
an answer to Shura. Suddenly, the assassin launches his punch at light
speed, targeting Ares. Even so, Ares does not move. "Ah!!!" Ares holds
his stomach. He is about to fall. The assassin jumps to The Pope's position.
"Oh no..." As Aiolos was shouting,
the assassin already is in striking
distance to The Pope. Even though
The Pope is old and diseased, he is still a Golden Saint; he won't lose
easily. The Pope easily evades an attack.
"Pope!" Aiolos shouting as he and
Shura runs and stands between the Pope and the assassin. No matter how
confident this assassin is, he can't be careless facing 2 Golden Saints.
The assassin sunddenly jumps and lands behind The Pope.
Even The Pope feels allowing him
to jump behind is a mistake. Aiolos and Shura, can't launch their attacks
without hitting The Pope. They can't see a spot where they can attack,
but they still both put on an attack stance.They have to wait to see if
the assassin would slip up and then attack. The two are very nervous and
sweating. The assassin has all the advantage. The assassin is like playing
cat and mouse with them.
