Pain was all Takias could think about. When the lightning hit him, it had thrown him high up in the night sky. But when he fell, he seemed to fall forever. He knew he was going to hit the ground but the longer he anticipated the impact, the more the wondered just how high he had been thrown. He opened his eyes and looked down as the rain that had been driving all around him suddenly stopped.
Down below, it looked like it was daylight. Well not exactly daylight but somewhere between afternoon and evening. He felt as if the night sky around him was travelling with him as it got darker down below. It didn’t occur to him that he should be concerned that he was so high up, he could barely make out any kind of details. That's when he noticed the cat, which had been on the roof with him, was falling right alongside of him. He reached out, for some reason and tucked it under his arm.
He looked down again and noticed the ground was coming up awfully fast. The dark sky around him began to spark with beams of lightning. They reached out and licked over tall structures and trees. So fast, the ground was coming so fast. He knew he was going to die.
At that moment the space around him light up and once again, he was struck by lightning. His decent stopped when he was just short of 10 meters high and he cried out in pain, frozen in time and space as his body fused with the tiny being in his arm and his body instantly morphed into something new…something better. Then, just as quickly, his body was released and the dark sky around him disappeared back where it came from and he hit the hot desert ground with a wet ‘smack’.
His dark shinobi uniform and his body were soaked to the bone. Steam drifted off of his still body as he lay still on the hot ground. His steel blades glistened in the fading sunlight. His hand twitched, then his cheek. Then his eye opened and he lifted his head weakly and looked around. He looked up to see a young man standing near him with a surprised expression, “Doko?” he asked then let his head fall back to the ground.
