Mmmm….listen to that kid
IT IS HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What is happening?
I know I have to beat them there
I saw it in a vision, destiny it seems
I have to stop them from making reality of what I’ve seen!
*Cold rain begins to pour as a choir of suffering echoes while the Clocktower decends*
Horror! Terror! Hear our cries!
Eternal Damnation is what comes
To all who enter within
There is no escape from the Clocktower’s reckoning!
I don’t know where you are kid
Give me a sign before all hell breaks loose would you?!
It’s too late…
HE IS AT THE GATES!
Please, anywhere but there
Does this kid realize what he is walking into?!
Surely there is no worse fate
Than that which awaits inside
The Clocktower’s halls!
Alright kid, this is your chance…you ready?
A smile on my face to hide my fear
I said yes, knowing full well it could mean endless suffering
Then again…Isn’t that what was waiting for me anyways?
Taking me through another void we soon arrived at the doors
I sat in shock staring up at the black mist covered Clocktower before me
A choir of madness continued to sing
All through the streets people and things were appearing lost and confused
I think it was when I saw the bloodied bodies piling up in the streets
I truly realized what failure would mean…
The Devil In Black told me while we waited on the eve
There was a chance I could get vengeance and get back my family!
I knew already what I had to do
If all he said was a lie, he at least gave me one truth…
He gave me proof that my families murderer was somewhere inside!
THE HEART COLLECTOR MUST DIE!
I’m coming kid! Just hold up a little longer for me please!
The place is in complete disaster
Nothing but blood soaked streets!
Everywhere there is death and screams
I even saw someone dragged into the Clocktower screaming
As though the place itself were the one dragging him to his doom
Then it happened, the worst possible thing…
I failed…the doors were opening
I let out a scream
The kid gave me a smile as though saying not to worry
Then he entered the abyss that was the pure blackness within
That was the last I saw of him before making a decision of my own…
…The doors were readying to close and I threw myself head first within…
The last thing I saw as I looked back was the smile of The Devil In Black
Such a menacing grin…
I saw a man hacked in two by something I have not seen in any reality
The black skies lit up and I felt my very soul shaking
The skies turned red and then all the ground began shaking
The sounds of tormented screams
The bodies of the dead
It was just the beginning
Shadows darker than the darkest night
Hid something for which I could not describe
There came a hideous growl
Then all screams were silenced
The Aguryu has come
Echoed a horrifying voice behind me…
