A Vision of Escaflowne Fanfiction
The standard disclaimer: Yeah, okay I stole these characters from the marvelous creators of The Vision of Escaflowne...and Rurouni Kenshin too. Yadda yadda yadda. Please don't sue me ^_^ The main story line is of my own delusional imaginings. Blah blah blah. Please do not distribute. Thanks.
A Broken Land shall rise again;
Vengeance and Hunger as Guidance.
The Wheel of Fortune turns.
Feathers tipped in Blood;
The Dragon's Sword forged in heated Battle.
Thy Kingdom's Heart it shall possess.
Hitomi smiled and gently stroked her round belly. "Soon," she crooned, "soon you will see the world..." She leaned back into the pillows of her hospital bed, sighing contently. Now where did Seijuro run off to?
Seijuro...her companion for life, the father of her children. The tall, red haired man who was built like a tree trunk but as gentle as a lamb. Seijuro's gentleness was one of the reasons why she loved him so. He made her laugh. She loved him because under that gentleness there was a determination and a backbone of steel Hitomi could appreciate.
Hitomi chuckled to herself. She never thought that she would fall in love with a big man like Seijuro. She never though she would fall in love with anyone...else. Seijuro was so different from...from...
She winced as a contraction hit her. The contractions were closer together so it wouldn't be long now. She stared out her hospital window looking at the night sky and the pale luminous moon. She daydreamed about what her life would be like with the sounds of little feet running around the house.
Her eyes widened as the pale moon took on an ominous colour. She could feel her heart beat harder.
"This feeling...no, it can't be." she whispered, terrified. It had been years since she told the future, and she had refused to do it ever again.
She heard the chime of rings clashing together and a hollow voice speaking. It was her own.
"The Twinned shall fall from the Sky..."
Flashes of fields, of trees, a place forgotten. Gaea. The Twin moons rising high in the sky, and then turning red as blood.
"A Broken Land shall rise again..."
Poverty, destitution, children running with bare feet through streets rundown and filthy...
"Vengeance and Hunger as Guidance..."
The face of a new born child, adrogynous, staring with wide, unseeing eyes and fair lashes...then a dark figure rising, a cloak swirling around it, carrying a sword...dripping a dark, viscous liquid.
"The Wheel of Fortune turns..."
The wheel turns and spins, changing fortunes and destinies...
"Feathers tipped in Blood..."
Large, white wings unfurl; feathers flying. The tips are red.
"The Dragon's Sword forged in heated Battle..."
A flare of fire lashes out. A single figure wades through bodies of the fallen...
"Thy Kingdom's Heart it shall possess..."
Fanelia rises out from the mountains...and then, nothing.
Hitomi screamed, and there was pain.
"Doctor! She's ready!"
On Gaea, Van awoke, gasping for air. His mind was swirling with of chaotic images. His body was bathed in a cold sweat. He looked out the window. He saw the Mystic Moon engulfed in a flaming red aura, and shuddered.
