Setting: 12:00 am, UnknownEdit
A man enthroned in a seat of darkness points out his finger into the midnight sky. He smiles haughtily as a star falls from the horizon. A young man in black overalls and white cape approaches him and bows down to him.
Gunz: Master DIO...
DIO: Gunz Lazar, what a pleasant surprise.
Gunz: Master, just how long should you require my servitude until you free me from my bonds?
DIO: I take it, you never understood your true purpose until now.
The man whose made known as DIO stood from his throne and walked down to the kneeling young man. Without a second thought, DIO stamps his foot and steps on the young man's back.
DIO: You will always be beneath me, Gunz. Nothing can change that.
Gunz: Gaaah....uggh.... yes...sir...
DIO took his foot off the young man's back and returned to his throne. Cross-legged and glaring at the young man, his words were solid as steel.
DIO: Anyone who has been bound by the consequences of the Current of Time shall never be freed through conventional means.
Gunz: The Current of Time?!
DIO: Gunz Lazar...or shall I say, the hellhound of Coredegon that bears a shard of the infernal thing.
Gunz: I do not have such!
DIO: Let's see how that fares, then, shall we?
A blinding ray of light consumed the area, followed by the voice of the young man writhing in pain.
Setting: 5am, Kazami ManorEdit
Mira: Professor Kazami.
Shun: Miss Parker, you're just in time for breakfast. Have a seat.
Mira: How pleasant.
Mira takes her seat and looks around as Professor Kazami prepares a breakfast for her.
Shun: Yes, Miss Parker?
Mira: Until now, you still live in his shadow.
Mira: You had always been in Dan Kuso's shadow...
Shun: Oh, I beg your pardon. A ninja is a dweller of the shadows.
Mira: True that.
Shun: Here, I hope you like today's morning tea.
Mira: You're really good at this.
Shun: Thank you, that means a lot to me.
A short while later, a pink-haired man entered the kitchen.
Shun: What brings you here?
Lync: A meteor crashed on East of Bayview Harbor last night.
Shun: So? It's just a meteor.
Lync: Wrong call, Shun. It's not anything that fell down on Earth before.
Shun: True, it's magnitude is quite a bit more devastating.
Lync: Not only that, the Grammaton's sensors and radar equipment had picked up some sort of weird energy emanating from the meteor.
Shun: Kryptonite? Kryptonium? Unobtainium? Be my guest.
Lync: Comic book stuff is not the point here.
Mira: That annoying meteor was all over the news this morning.
Lync: We should be thankful that Earth's gadgets are not enough to detect the supernatural energy from the meteor.
Shun: Then how on the Moon did you picked up that strange energy signals then?
Lync: The Grammaton's technoloqy are all based on Vestal technology which is a thousand times more updated than the latest tracking devices that Earthlings made.
Shun: I figured. Vestal technology at it's finest, eh?
Lync: Actually, our equipment is a bit outdated.
Shun: You can't be serious!
Lync: It needs a bit of upgrade since the Energy Signals cannot be gleaned further.
Miss Parker stood from her seat and looked away from the two men.
Mira: Could it be true...?
Shun: Yes, Miss Parker?
Mira: That a God may destroy as he please...
Lync: A Destroyer will still meet his destruction, Miss Parker.
Lync approaches Miss Parker.
Lync: Our nature is to make sure they do meet their doom.
Mira: If that is the case then I will send my vassal to the crash site if he could obtain samples and detect whatever the meteor is about.
Lync: Great idea. A Protheesaur can detect even subliminal energy sources. No wonder they're being captured to become Truffle Hog substitutes.
Mira: I thought we got past that whole issue of Protheesaur poaching?
Lync: We did. Those critters are now working for me in the Mothership of the Grammaton.
Shun: So you got dinosaurs as your crewmen. So much for updated technology, huh?
Lync: Shun, those Dinosaurs are not mindless flesh-eaters. They have brains as advanced as humans.
Shun: Good for you to find cheap labor. Me, I have to do everything by myself.
Lync: Too bad for you then. Haha.
Setting: 1pm, UnknownEdit
Back to the base of the God of Darkness; Gunz Lazar met with a young woman who seems to be knowledgeable of the earth-shaking event that happened in the past few hours.
Milena: Oh Gunz. I'm so pleased to see you.
Gunz: Enough talk, what do you want?
Milena: You seem to be in a bad mood.
Gunz: Just get straight to the point.
Milena: Well, you see...it felt kind of cold.
Gunz: If this is about Penguins then I suggest you GTFO.
Milena: No, not Penguins.
Gunz: What, Yoyos?
Milena: Nope, not really.
Gunz: Then what?
Milena: Well, you could say the Meteor fell down like a Yoyo.
Gunz: I don't see the resemblance.
Milena: Then back again from anyone who launched it.
Gunz: Now that's where it gets boring.
Milena: Do you not know that a falling star possess a strange form of energy?
Gunz: Gamma Ray Burst?
Milena: No, an energy that portends death.
Gunz: Uhuh. Hundreds of casualties were recorded.
Milena: The death of a star...and the birth of another...doesn't that ring a bell to you?
Gunz: Seriously, you're talking about God particles again.
Milena: Correct. God particles.
Milena moves away from Gunz, slides across the room and winks like a crazed teen idol.
Milena: Only a god can rule over life, death and rebirth.
Gunz: So in order to extract those so-called God Particles, you need a star's full life cycle.
Milena: That would take like Eons, you know.
Gunz: However, you found a way to speed up the process.
Milena: Pin pon!
Gunz: Despicable wretch. Get out of my sight.
Milena: Oh, you're no fun! Oh well, I'll be back!
Milena blows a kiss before leaving Gunz's quarters.
