After day of marching with one point to rest, The Tsukuyomi Army and Makoto arrived at a specific point on Vista Hills. There, a sleeping Shiiha was spotted in the ground.
Makoto: Shiiha. we're here.
Shiiha: Hmmm....AH! Makoto-sama! Oh it feels nice saying this.:D
Makoto: Shiiha, if you would.
Shiiha: I waited 22 years for this moment. Illusion Release!
She forms the entire village of Susanoo around they in thin air.
Ieyasu: Is this...What I think it is?
Makoto: Yes. Susanoo. I kept hidden and safe. I wanted to get rif of it, but part of me didn't wanted tp go to waste.
Soma: So it does exists...Susanoo.
Asuka: This place could get an extra sparkle or so.
Makoto: Call the Yokai. I have some things to say.
She does what Makoto ordered and several of the Yokai who evacuated from Amaterasu gathered in front of her. She then explains the whole story around Tsuchigumo and the Fall.
Makoto:...And one more thing.
She calls Tenkai to come next to her.
Makoto: This is the man knows as Tenkai, but his real name is Akechi Sanzuke...And he is also my son.
They all fall back like if they were hit by a windstorm.
Asuka: Never seen so many suckers falling since this year's New Years Eve Party.
Makoto: Many of you might lose the trust for me and might think I am unfit to be your leader. But I have no regrets of my actions. If anyone wanna take me on go ahead. I will gladly accept the challenge anytime.
"We don't have time for this."
Akihara appears with his body covered in bandages.
Akihara: Right now, all Taiyo is in peril of outside dangers. What we need is to join forces and be ready when the Rogues strike. That is all.
He goes back inside a nearby house without saying anything more. All the Kitsunes and Yokai discusses with themselves and seems to agree with Akihara and Makoto.
Ehihime: Well that is settled then. Who wants Fish Soooooup?
It was near Midnight and an entire party was going on through the village of Susanoo. Humans and Yokai alike were in perfect harmony there. Soma and Hanzo watches the festivities from afar each one with a bowl of soup.
Hanzo:...I never expected you as well being like Asuka.
Soma: I am not like her.
Hanzo: Easy. I already leaved those things behind. *sluuuuuurp* This soup is really good.
Soma:...You seem a little different. Did something happened? I heard you survived a wave of Yokai even though you were wounded.
Hanzo: ...I just didn't had the luxury to die. That is all.
Asuka appears with a large barrel of Sake in her hand.
Asuka: Isn't wonderful? Partying all night with different people? I mean, look at those fellas there.
She points at a drunken human and a drunken kitsune chilling out together.
Asuka: Hahahaha! So funny!
Hanzo:...What did you come here for?
Asuka: Oh yeah. I have orders from Ieyasu to you two.
Soma: What is it?*sluuuuurp*
Asuka: Starting next week, you 2 shall supervise the construction of Susanoo. So you both are to be transfered to here.
Soma:*Spiiiiit* What? Why?
Asuka: We came to a conclusion that we need someone representing mankind and hybrids so you two were the best candidates?
Hanzo: But what about Tsukuyomi?
Asuka: Don't worry about it. I have everything under control.
Soma: That is what I am concerned about it?! Where is Lord Ieyasu anyway?
Asuka: He is using an old shack as a tent. He is with Akechi.
They heard someone shouting from afar and Kasa appears with bandages and salves.
Kasa: There you are. I need to change your bandages and treat your wounds.
Hanzo: Can't you ask this to anyone else?
Kasa: Nonsense. Everyone else needs a break after killing each other, so let the newcomer take care of these kind of things. Besides, I have been treating wounds all the time in a friend of mine back in Blitzreign.
Hanzo: Tch. You are just trying to be useful-Gah!
Asuka press his wounds from the side.
Asuka: Are you rejecting my cute little sister's help? Shame on you.
Hanzo: Gah...I give up.
In the old building where Ieyasu was, he was talking with Tenkai.
Tenkai: And that is what transpired there.
Ieyasu: I understand. It seems to me it was a tough battle.
Tenkai: I wish that we keep the events of Amaterasu in secret. I do not want the words of her defeat to reach the ears of people like Raven.
Ieyasu: I think I see your point. To a Dark Lord be defeated is something that can be described as a huge shock. Her name is know all around the world after all.
Tenkai: My thoughts exactly.
Ieyasu: Anyway, I am curious. Just who is this Red Beast anyway? How can someone like him exists?
Tenkai: I don't know if this plays a part or not, but he is the son of The Red Demon.
Ieyasu: You mean Highlander? The Vampire Hunter? He once worked with your father didn't he? To think their sons would meet each other...I guess this is fate.
Tenkai: But again, I don't think this has anything to do with him. Johnnathan is simply one amazing guy. Now if you excuse me...I need to see my mother.
On Shiiha's house that was the village, Makoto, Ehihime, Shiiha and the Red Beast Pirates were enjoying a meal. Ehihime and Makoto seems to be having a private conversation while drinking soup.
Ehihime: So about Akechi, didn't you noticed that he would away stop at the exact moment? Like, just when it reached the point?
Makoto: Now that you mention...Yeah. It's like he could read my mind.
Ehihime: Sure thing....Man, Yoshimetsu was the best guy isn't it?
Makoto: Yeah. He was like...God Guy or something.
West: What the hell are these two talking?
Florencia: I surprised you didn't get the hint.
Makoto: So...How are you holding there, Johnnathan?
Johnnathan was eating an entire mountain of food by himself.
Florencia: It seems that took quite the energy from him.
Shiiha: He seems to be fine. Do you want...Fourthies?
Johnnathan: Nah. I'm fine now.
Edward: So, what was that thing you pulled anyway?
Florencia: You said you felt the entire darkness into you. In fact, when I saw you, I couldn't distinguish your darkness to your life force...As if they were one of the same.
Johnnathan: Yeah...And something bugs me about that.
Vanilla: Huh? What? Is it bad?
Johnnathan:...How should I call it? Dark Fusion or Dark Syncro?
West:...Syncro sounds too lame.
Makoto: I can't believe this is even a issue. Is he always like this?
Florencia: Usually he is one of the most serious in this group.
Ehihime: Still, the power of Darkness really sounds horrific.
Makoto: You know Johnnathan, you're kinda similar to how Yoshimetsu told me about your father?
Johnnathan: Yoshimetsu told of him?
Makoto: Yes. How they slayed down a Nue all by themselves.
West: You mean that thing that went after us when we were avoiding those spider guys? You said you took care of it didn't you Eddie?
Edward: Well...Edward lended me a hand.
Makoto: I never thought there would be someone who would be called Demon other than Akechi. I guess he really did lived up by his name at the time.
Johnnathan: How I am similar to dad?
Makoto: From what I heard he was fearless and often didn't take things too seriously. That kind of guy.
Johnnathan: Yeah, he was kinda weird. But a cool kind of weird.
Makoto: Also, you and Sanzuke are very similar despise your race.
Johnnathan: I noticed.
Tenkai then arrives in the banquet.
Shiiha: Sanzuke! You're here.
Makoto: Hey son. How did it go with Ieyasu?
Tenkai: It was fine. He is still the same clumsy man from before.
Makoto: I see. Wouldn't you mind to sit? There is a few things I wanna discuss with you and your friends.
Makoto: Alright then. Johnnathan.
Makoto: You came for this, don't you?
She shows her Fox's Heart to Johnnathan.
Johnnathan: Oh! The thing that happened to be the first place why we were even here! I almost forgot about it.
Makoto: It is yours. You deserved it.
She tosses to him and he catches.
Shiiha: B-But Makoto-sama! Isn't that a national trasure of Amaterasu?!
Makoto: It is okay. It will be safer in his hands than our's anyway. Now, there is someone else I have a question. You. The fairy. Florencia, right?
Makoto: I heard it that your people happens to be guardians of the ancient history. Since the Immortal Age, right?
Florencia: I am still young, but if there anything you wanna know, I will be happy to try and answer.
Makoto: Very well.
She opens the palm of her hand and forms a figure of foxfire that resembles the woman that talked to her in her dreams.
Makoto: This one has appeared in my dream once and it was trying to reach me for quite a while. This is just a hunch, but...Is she one of the Immortals?
Edward: That is pretty weird. Did she told you about anything.
Makoto:...To beware the Spider.
Florencia:...So, you don't know who she is?
Makoto: I'm afraid not. In fact I don't recognize any Immortal.
Florencia: I see...I was raised by the Fairy Mother and lived in the Great Hall of Fairyland. There were portraits of various Immortals there. And she was one of they. This one is Izanami.
Shiiha: Woah! Woah! Woah! Izanami? The mother of all Yokai? She is alive?
Edward: Didn't she was slayed by another Immortal?
Makoto: As the history dictates yes, but...There is just too much we do not know...but it was by the fact she met Izanagi that yokais like me exists...that is a fact we cannot forget it. Do you know anything else?
Florencia: Outside of what Taiyo knows and thay she was part of a Clan of Immortals know as Fire Demons, not much else.
Makoto: I see. Thanks anyway.
Someone arrives in the house and announces his presence. It was Ryuugi.
Vanilla: Ah! The good spider guy.
Ryuugi: That is how you're gonna recognize me isn't it? Makoto-sama. Tsuchigumo was safely imprisioned.
West: I think it would be better to execute him.
Ryuugi: Just because we were about to kill each other, it doesn't mean we are savages. And Makoto-sama, this might be too much, but I have somethignto ask you for.
Makoto: What is it?
Ryuugi: Would you please allow us of the Spider Clan to help build Susanoo into a great city alongside the Tanukis? We, The Spiders, lost all the little trust we had and we want to regain by doing something other than killing...please allow me to show we are different that Tsuchigumo.
Makoto: Hmm...I suposee your abilities might be useful in building houses. What do you say Shiiha?
Shiiha: I suposse he deserves a chance for helping us. Even if Akihara denies it, it is 2 against 1.
Ryuugi: You two have my gratitude.
He then leaves the house without any word.
Makoto: I like how things are scaling up to.
Tenkai: Me too.
Makoto:...Tenkai, I ahve something to say.
Tenkai: What is it?
Makoto:...I want you to keep sailing with Johnnathan.
Shiiha: W-Whaaaat? You are encouraging your son to be a criminal?
Johnnathan: I have no objections.
Tenkai: Don't butt in Johnny! Why do you say this mother? You don't want me next to you after all this time?
Makoto: To recover all the time I lost with you is everything I want now...but duty speaks louder than love this time. If what recent events have revealed is that our entire country is under a threat of national level.
Tenkai: You mean...
Ehihime:....Yes. Your mother is right, Tenkai. Raven has become a problem to us just like in the west. In fact, I heard that they done quite the deal in Zhar recently.
Tenkai: I-I see...
Makoto: And Johnnathan is an enemy you two have in common. He took away from you two what cannot be replaced. You two must join forces together to face the rogue threat.
Tenkai: I understand, but isn't better to me be at your side helping re-building the country?
Makoto: Don't bother about us. Besides, I know you would prefer to hang out with your friends as much as possible isn't it?
Tenkai:...I don't...know what to say...
Johnnathan: Oh, we love you too.
Edward: Yeah man. We're a team.
Florencia: You are one of the few I can count on keeping us alive.
West: Things would be pretty weird without you, even though we met you like last week or so.
Vanilla: I myself don't mind being around they as well.
Tenkai:...You guys are so lame, you know that.
Makoto: I would love to live with Sanzuke again...but now Taiyo and all the world needs Tenkai now.
Tenkai: I understand. I will do it mother.
Makoto:...You've grow into a fine man, my child. Your father would be proud of you. I'm glad I have you as my son.
Tenkai: And I am glad to have a kind and beautiful mother like you.
Johnnathan:....Bah. My mother was prettier.
Tenkai:...Excuse me Johnny! I am trying to have a tender moment here!
Johnnathan: Don't you do those things like...alone?
Tenkai: We didn't see each other for 10 years okay! And she is far prettier than yours, I'm pretty sure.
Johnnathan: That is because you never saw her! And she was also way more nicer than her!
Tenkai: A Vampire more nice than a Kitsune?! As if!
Johnnathan: I know it. I experienced first hand!
Tenkai: That does it! Ready your blades!
The pick their weapons and clash at each other with ferocious attacks on the table.
Shiiha:...Should we try to stop they?
Makoto: I'm pretty sure that is how youngsters nowadays strenghten their bonds, isn't that right?
West: You could say a rivalry is a beautiful form of friendship.
Florencia: Weird. Usually he is more calm than this.
Vanilla: You know Eddie, I feel like you should do those kind of things as well.
Ehihime:...I just realized. Where is that native from The North Pole that was with you guys.
West: You mean Billy?
A voice rises from the house and a small tanuki with the appearance of boy appears.
Shiiha: Ah! Daaaaarling!
She jumps in his arms, knocking him down to the floor and gives a lot of kisses in his cheeks.
Florencia: Darling? Is that...
Makoto: Yes. Hoji. Shiiha's husband. Even though he is about the same age as her he grew very little, so she keeps herself that size for his convenience.
Hoji: Sorry for the lateness, I saw this surprise party down there and I found someone in need of help...Oh, hello there Kyuubi-sama. Long time no see.
Makoto: You can call me Makoto.
Hoji: So your name is Makoto? Feels weird hearding after such a long time. Why is there two youngsters fighting in our house?
Shiiha: Oh, ignore them. It just the springtime of youth.
Hoji: Haha. I love those words. Make me wanna relive ours...Anyway, as I was coming back helping our children with the harvest, I found a very...unusual fellow near that mountain. You can enter.
He calls the guest and for their surprise, it was no other than Billy who was itching his head. When he enters Johnnathan and Tenkai stopped fighting and were grasped by their surprise.
Vanilla: Thank Goodness you're alive!*sniff*
West: Maybe it is a ghost.
Makoto: A Marusian, huh? He kinda reminds me of a Hanya.
Edward then jumps and hugs him crying rivers
Edward: You're alive Billy! God job, soldier!
Billy: Oh! Commander! It seems you suc....Wait...
Billy:....YOU ARE NOT THE COMMANDER!!!
He grabs his neck and faces him heads-on.
Billy: My head is working fine now. You LIED to me all this time!
West: Uh-oh. Shit hit the fan.
Florencia: I knew this would happen.
Johnnathan: Hey, hang on Billy. We just-
Billy: And you! I know your face! You are The Red Beast. Johnson of The Red Squad, my tail! You think you could make a pirate out of me! Unnaceptable!
Tenkai: Billy-san. Please understand. We couldn't just reveal ourselves for such a...passionate guy and Edward acted by impulse. Besides, we saved you didn't we?
Billy:...Hmpf! I suposse you right. But putting me in the middle of someone else's war is too much. If you wanna apologize to me, then you better come alongside me to the Wildlands...Red Beast.
