"Rise" CHAPTER 1
Posted May 3rd, 2021 by Not_Jello
In a universe not so far away from ours, there were heroes - famous heroes. It all started with the main character of our story, Mizu Bushida, meaning Water Warrior/Samurai (If I translated that correctly). He had a power to create water, hence the name, Mizu.
It was his first day going to his new school.
"But mum, what if they don't like me?" He said. "I can't control my powers yet. I can't turn them on on command and sometimes they malfunction and water goes everywhere..."
His mum told him that the kids were just like him and they had powers too. Mizu walked outside to the bus with his head down and hood up. He had blue leather gloves to try and prevent his power malfuntioning. He got on the bus and saw someone with long, braided pink hair. She had headphones in and light pink skin.
"Hi there..." Mizu said shyly.
"Oh, hi." The girl said. "I'm Sakura Ki."
"I'm Mizu Bushida." Mizu said.
"As in, water samurai?" Sakura asked.
"Yes, and your name must mean... Cherry Blossom Tree?" Mizu said.
"Yep, and also, I'm confused. Why are we translating our names into English?" Sakura said.
"Not sure, but it's fun." Mizu said.
The bus stopped and they went into the school then an announcement was made.
"WARNING! THE VILLIANS HAVE BEEN RIOTING IN THE STREETS OF TOKYO CITY! REMAIN CALM AND STAY IN YOUR CLASSROOMS."
Cliffhanger end of chapter. :)
