BUTTERFLY EFFECT Chapter 10
~"The Man Who Sells Souls"~
"Alright, Edward .where the hell are you, you chibi-chump?"
Cade had been waiting at hospital main entrance for the given fifteen minutes and even graciously waited another five minutes for the alchemist who had practically sworn up and down that he didn't need to be told again and again when to come back. That notion seemed to crash land fantastically.
"Dammit I'm wasting time " Cade's eyes darkened. "I can't stand that."
The young woman sighed. "Guess I gotta go look for O-chibi."
Cade began venturing down the hallway which Edward took earlier. One of the overhead lights crackled and went out. She hoped that wouldn't happen again. The idea of looking for someone in pitch-darkness was unappealing, even to her. "Man, this is such a big hospital how am I ever gonna find such a pipsqueak-y kid? Hey, wait a minute "
After going about the upcoming corner, Cade spied a door on the left side. Trying the knob, sh

~"The Falling Of The Crow"~
The dull, grey sky stood still, unchanging, as always. If there were trees, the hollow breeze would have surely rustled through them, but this was The Void. This was the land of the Demons, as determined by the Gate of Time, and there was not even a single blade of grass in The Void, let alone a tree. This world was truly fitting for demons, which is why the Crow Demon couldn't understand why the other Demon, the Dove, was so unsatisfied.
"Belial "The Crow began sternly. "What exactly are you thinking? Lady-Time appointed us with the duty of devouring souls determined 'impure' by the Gate of Truth. It has been this way since-"
"I know that, Malphas, but I wouldn't expect you to understand the way that I feel."
"Yes, how could I possibly understand the feelings of another Demon?" Malphas retorted, tone with laced with pure sarcasm.
"Even though you are also a Demon, you really do not understand."

~”How To Get 100 Duel Challenges In Ten Seconds Flat”~
Being up on a stage never made her nervous. The spotlight was to her as the sun is to most. Normal.
Stepping with poise up onto the platform, she cocked her hips and gave a big smile. “Hi, everyone!”
As expected, a loud, synchronized cheer arose from the numerous seated students.
“Kisaro Kisaragi-Kun, welcome to Duel Academia!” said the bearded man who had kindly led her to the auditorium. He had earlier introduced himself as the Chancellor of the school, Samejima.
“Thanks! I’m super psyched to be here, myself!” She said, flipping her dark tresses over her shoulder.
From his seat, Sho looked on admiringly. “To think I’m actually seeing her in person….” He perked up, turning to the empty seat beside him. I hope Aniki didn’t oversleep again…..
“Well then, Signora Kisaragi,” Began a feminine lo

Though he slept soundly, he was acutely aware of a benign presence looming above him. Gradually returning to the realm of the conscious, Judai rubbed at his eyes, before sitting up groggily to greet the cause of his awakening.
“Winged Kuriboh? What’s going on?” The Osiris-Red student began, giving a huge yawn.
It was much earlier than he would have liked to wake up on a Saturday, but what the Heck. He could always doze off again, anyway. Well, rather than thinking about his ever-so eventful plans for the rest of the day, Judai re-centered his attention on his furry spirit companion. The fluffy little thing was flitting about excitedly, trying to convey to Judai what it desperately wanted to say. The brunette teenager had to give the little guy credit; Winged Kuriboh did a pretty good job conveying things, given that he didn’t have a mouth. Judai nodded, somehow understanding. It was like he just knew.

~The End of the World~
"Ow " A sharp throbbing sensation jolted Edward awake. Slowly, the boy rose from his unconscious position upon the alley ground. The second he did, however, the alchemist was extremely bewildered.
"Where am I ?"
It was a cold winter night in a dreary, decrepit looking city that lay in near ruins, blanketed lightly by snow. The alchemist decided it would be better to keep moving. Maybe if he saw someone, they might be able to help him, though Edward couldn't imagine what kind of people would live in such a city. It was like something came through and raided the whole place. A twister or a really bad earthquake was probably to blame. There were many buildings that had their tops razed clean off. Nearly all of the building windows were smashed, cracked or missing completely. Many sorts of papers, pamphlets and fliers scattered the ground and there were strange things left to rust in at the sides of the street. Edward presumed the

As they strolled casually down extravagant Parisian streets, Cadencia smiled cheerfully, with her arm linked about Sebastian's. To the butler's own surprise, his expression was a relatively cheerful one, as well. For some reason he could not discern, Sebastian did not mind the fact that Cadencia was not typically a serious person. Her happy-go-lucky nature was a refreshing change of pace, compared to the other stuffy humans about. He always observed her closely; everything about her was new and delightfully strange to the demon. The way that she was trailing the fine, silk hem of her gown in the dust of the side walk, the way that she would wave to anyone who passed by her, regardless of social status, even the way that she held onto his own arm, not frightened in the least that he was a demon.
Even if she hadn't yet specified a wish to create a contract, at least she wouldn't be a miserably annoying human to linger around with in the meantime. Quite the co

~"Raging Storm, Brewing Steadily"~
Cadencia wasn't sure what to make of his attempts. Since Sebastian had disappeared, Claude had all but taken his place as her butler. Granted, she didn't allow him to do much for her, as had been the same with Sebastian, but the Spider Demon had begun to create schedules typical for an aristocrat, as Sebastian had also previously done. Latin lectures at twelve, violin lessons at three it was the same, and yet it was not. She appreciated what Claude was doing for her, but she knew it was only because he hoped she would create a contract with him. She couldn't understand why he lingered for that reason. She had made it quite clear that she couldn't promise her soul to anyone until she accomplished her mission she had set for herself.
A mission that might as well have been impossible, a mission that might kill her. It was very likely she would die before she completed it. Even so, Claude was still determined to stay in the hope

Sebastian stared at the evergreen landscape jadedly. A lush green meadow and rolling hills stretched out before him, clashing with the endless blue sky above.
"Milady what was this 'crucial' thing you were talking about?"
"Well, you said you've never had fun before."
"Yes, but I don't see what that has to do with our current location. What are we doing here?"
"You're going to have some fun."
"And how is that, exactly?"
"See this hill?"
"Oh, not at all." Sebastian replied, bitingly sarcastic.
"Really? You really don't see it? Perhaps some glasses are in order, then." Cadencia joked, and laughed lightly.
Though it irked him, to his own surprise, he was not insulted.
"What about the hill, Milady?" Sebastian asked, trying to get back on track.
"Roll down it."
He gave her bewildered look. "Beg pardon?"
"Roll .down the hill." She emphasized a few words purposefully.
"You want me to get on the ground and roll down this hill?" He asked, making sure

~"That Butler, Tutoring"~
"So, then," Cadencia said, sitting down at her white lacquered, carved vanity. "What was it you said we were doing today, Sebastian?" She ran a comb of ivory through her dark tresses.
"I think it prudent to determine what needs the most work. As a noble, you must excel at dancing, philosophy, foreign languages and of course, you must be able to play at least the violin."
Cadencia shrunk sheepishly. "I've never done anything of those things before "
Sebastian arched a brow, and stared at her laconically. "None of them?"
"No..?" She gave him an awkward, nervous grin. "None of that's really relevant, or important."
"Not important? What noble cannot dance or play an instrument?"
"I have more valuable things to do with my time. Besides, the world isn't going to explode if I can't do the two-step."
He gave her a sharp stare and smirked. "You think you're going to be learning something so simple?"
She looked up at him, alarmed. "What do you

~”Rooming with the Fiend-Queen”~
“Well…” Sho began, slightly embarrassed. “This is our room.”
Kisaro looked about amiably. It was small, like they had said. There was one bunk-bed crammed against the wall, two desks, and scarcely any space between them.
“It’s probably not like anything you’re used to, Kisaragi-San….” The bespectacled Osiris-Red said, sheepishly.
“I like it.” She smiled. “I’m sure you might find it hard to believe, but the high-life gets pretty boring after awhile.”
“Awesome!” Judai grinned. “I just knew you were a straight-laced person, Kisaro!”
“I’m just me, silly.”
“Kisaragi-San, you can have my bed, if you’d like….” Sho offered, blushing.
“Aw, I couldn’t do that, especially since you were nice enough to let me crash here for the time being!”
“I really don
