Thousand Years of Darkness
Second Day of Thunder
Second Day of Thunder That is the Second Day of Thunder as you all know it, but here is the Second Day of Thunder as I know it.
The armies had assembled, and the Thunders awaited the chosen time in the hidden passage used by Bayushi Kachiko. When the Thunders assaulted the Kami Togashi, was indeed thrown down, and Hitomi did indeed rush forward. This time though, she faltered. She fled from that place and her destiny; Damning us all. Doji Hoturi and the Hooded Ronin still attacked, and Hoturi had his heart removed for his trouble. Tadaka was cast down with his own Earth magic due to a previous corruption suffered in the battle outside. Yakamo had to bodily remove Toturi so all was not lost. Hitomi fled back to Dragon lands, the Lion fell to the Taint, Kachiko began the bride of the new Dark Emperor Fu Leng. What of the Hooded Ronin? He is said to have escaped as well and travels the lands to this day. How fitting for the last descendent of Shinsei, poetic even. Sadly poems are not fact, he is dead, the line of Shinsei is no more, there is no New Tao, there is only oppression and death. The Taint is not a gift for the prized, not simply obtained, for Fu Leng has decided to rule a country of men, not spread the Taint to all as thralls. How do I know all this, and who am I? Well, you must certainly hope I am a friend, for if you are not and managed to read this, you had best always look over your shoulder twice. I am Daidoji Uji. Last of the Crane Clan.
