Panic and Fear
Another School Year, Another ...
Location: Great Hall Entrance
Ayano was worried by her brother’s reactions and knew something was not right when she saw him incinerate a letter from their father and then walk off. She excused herself from her friends and ran to the cathedral in search of her brother… getting there and seeing that he wasn’t there she went to the other places she knew he liked to go when he needed time to clear his head but had no luck and had only one last place to check so she ran back to the Ravenclaw dorms in search of her brother. ‘Damn it Onii-sama where are you?’ she thought as she searched the common room then fearing the worst asked one of the boys to escort her up into her brother’s room so she could check something. Upon getting to her brother’s dorm she called out for him but heard nothing and when she walked in she immediately noticed that his armor was still there but his katana was missing. She thanked the boy that had escorted her and ran back down to the great hall, tears in her eyes as she was now very scared. She hadn’t even noticed the wand and notes near the outside doors.
“Bre, Bre, Bre….” Ayano cried out while running to the Gryffindor table.
Looking around to see who was calling for her, Bre saw Ayano running towards her. Quickly standing up, she turned to Ayano, “what is it little sister?” She asked, remembering how excited she was to call Bre her sister.
“I am scared…” She trailed off as she tried to catch her breath as tears flowed from her eyes.
Giving a sigh, Bre excused herself from her friends before taking Ayano’s hand and leading her out of the hall.
Once they were outside, Bre turned to Ayano, “alright, what's wrong? What has got you scared?”
“H-He got a letter from dad but incinerated it. T-That means something bad.” She stuttered a bit. “I-I-I c-can’t find him anywhere.” She stuttered more. “H-he took his sword but nothing else.” She started to cry harder because she was getting more scared with each passing moment because more and more bad thoughts were starting to run through her mind.
“Hay, hay, it's going to be alright” Bre said, kneeling down and giving her a gentle hug. She didn't like what Ayano was saying but she figured calming her down first would help move things along faster, after all she wasn't quite sure who this 'he' was but she had a good idea.
As they knelt there for a moment, Bre saw a piece of paper on the ground behind them.
Ayano eventually stopped crying but was still sniffling.
Letting go of Ayano, Bre stood up and walked over to pick up the paper only to find a wand underneath. Picking it up, she turned to Ayano, “do you know what your Brother's letter said?” She asked as she looked at the two pieces of paper she'd just picked up.
“No but i know that it’s not good because Onii-sama incinerated it right away and stopped smiling and left the hall.” Ayano replied between sniffles as she walked over and looked at the letters. “T-Th-That’s Satele’s wand.” She said as her eyes started to well up again as more bad things started to run through her mind. she knew that the writing on the letters matched her brother’s style and seeing the wand only added to sinking feelings she was getting.
Bee nodded, “I know, I recognised it too” she said, reading the letter that was written in English rather than the one written in strange Asian symbols she didn't understand. After a moment, she handed the Asian writing letter to Ayano, “can you read this?”
Ayano looked at the symbols and recognized the style of the calligraphy being used. She gulped hard. “oh no.” She said after she had read the letter, tears starting to roll down her cheeks again.
“What? What does it say?” Bre asked, hoping that it might be something better than what was in her letter.
“I-I-I-I…” she stuttered trying to process what was said. “O-On-Onii-sama is-is going to try and kill daddy for disobeying him. H-He f-f-feels that he’s dishonored himself and our clan by disobeying daddy.” She stuttered out but stopped as she tried to calm herself a bit.
“My dearest little sister, I have to ask you not to come after me and to do everything that Bre asks of you as very soon you will probably be all that is left of our clan. I have shamed myself and our clan by refusing our father’s command in the name of love and now i must either kill him and our mother or die trying in order to regain my honor and the honor of our clan. I am sorry…. love, Your stupid Onii-sama, Aramis.” Ayano translated her letter for Bre and started crying again. “why… why does Onii-sama have to do this… why choose love…” Ayano started randomly asking trying to make sense of it and figure out what wasn’t being directly said and started crying again because she simply couldn’t understand what was going on… all she knew was that her brother was going to kill her daddy or die trying.
Biting her lip, Bre tried to figure out what was going on. Looking at the wand, she had an idea where she could get answers. Picking up Ayano, she started to walk towards the Gryffindor dorm.
