Reincarnated: The Legendary Moon Sword


Why? ...Bookmark here

Why did it all have to end this way? ...Bookmark here

The agonising sounds of dying people on the blood-drenched battlefield continuously tortured my ears, causing them to bleed with intense pain.Bookmark here

I never thought my mere existense would lead to all thisBookmark here

But, of course this was entirely my fault. Thanks to my completely foolish act, I had caused my one and only mistress' fatal injury. One which permanently marked her death.Bookmark here

The war raged on.Bookmark here

Ignoring the vast pool of blood and rain of deadly weapons, I unsteadily made my way through the thick sheets of human corpses as the body of my mistress was the only light that kept pulling me forward.Bookmark here

Her face was covered in blood and the deep wound in her abdomen only worsened with each passing second yet she had this warm smile on her face after she laid eyes on me.Bookmark here

"Etornam", she called out to me.Bookmark here

"How, why...", my voice began to waver and my body shook. "Why are you still smiling? I caused all of this. I should be the one getting ready to embrace death."Bookmark here

A look of worry appeared on her face but she shrugged it off, "Now Now, you do know that you probably won't reincarnate once you die."Bookmark here

"Tch!", anger fueled within me. "Why are you still so calm!? Yes I will reincarnate! Just that I won't continue on as a living being! I'll reincarnate but be dead! I don't deserve to live..."Bookmark here

"Sigh, idiot", she quietly retorted. "I don't care."Bookmark here

My eyes widened in shock. She was still the same, even on her death bed. Bookmark here

"Take this", her hands trembled as she lifted her sacred blade. Bookmark here

The Legendary moon sword, rumoured-Bookmark here

no, I saw its power with my own two eyes. Power that was incomprehensible to the fickle human mind.Bookmark here

"Why are you giving me your-"Bookmark here

"I placed a reincarnation tag on it", she continued to smile. "Once you touch it, you'll be reincarnated into the sword once you die."Bookmark here

"What do you-"Bookmark here

"You'll continue to live only, you'll be restricted to the moon realm which exists only in the sword", she interrupted.Bookmark here

More and more confusion began to settle in. If the sword was that great, why couldn't she just use it to heal her wounds amd save herself!?Bookmark here

I just didn't get it!Bookmark here

"I know what you're thinking, I just want you to live in peace", she spoke as blood slowly oozed from her mouth. "I'm nearing my limit."Bookmark here

"N- No! Use the sword to save yourself!!"Bookmark here

She closed her eyes, shaking her head as she lifted her fingers and flicked my forehead.Bookmark here

"Nah", she replied.Bookmark here

"... Huh?"Bookmark here

The sacred blade began to glow as life slowly left my mistress' body.Bookmark here

"The moment you die", she coughed out the blood which began to clog her throat as she forced her final words, "you will become one with my sword."Bookmark here

Suddenly, lightning shone all over the land and revealed the terror in my eyes for a split second just before the great and powerful thunder cracked the clouds and shook the earth.Bookmark here

"Heh, boy am I going to miss the candy store", my mistress breathed her last at that very moment.Bookmark here

The cold, chilling rain began to fall, further evolving into a storm that blew the souls of the deceased along with it.Bookmark here

Tears crept up in the corner of my eyes as I stared at her lifeless body, "Now you've left me all alone."Bookmark here

Crying didn't bring her back, but I had come to accept my fate and held the sword close to me ever since.Bookmark here

(Unknown darkness - Third person)Bookmark here

After the events of the great blood war, whatever transpired after that was buried in a torrent that sought never to bring any of those memories into Etornam's mind.Bookmark here

His body continued to float in a vast sea of darkness, not bothered by the thickness of the black space.Bookmark here

Four lights suddenly burst into existence but they barely illuminated the darkness as they slowly surrounded Etornam's body.Bookmark here

Just then, other-worldly voices began to speak and their voices sounded completely the same.Bookmark here

"He's the only medium we have"Bookmark here

"Perfect, then our reawakening isn't too far"Bookmark here

"Good, then we'll begin the embedding process"Bookmark here

"I'll begin. Through the most fundamental variables, come the very equation of life."Bookmark here

Right after the voice spoke, one of the lights flared into a blue colour and was absorbed into Etornam's body.Bookmark here

"The great bulk of the so-called universe, having its particles and energy being its fundamental basis, build the sum of all meaning of life."Bookmark here

The second light then flared into a red colour, also forging itself with the seemingly lifeless body of the boy.Bookmark here

"Taking the minuscle compartments of such particles in unision, bring forth the compact body of life"Bookmark here

A pink colour burst from the third light, surrounding Etornam.Bookmark here

"And finally, bringing all these basic laws into one body, life takes meaning."Bookmark here

Green sparks flew all over the vacuum as the final light engulfed Etornam's body.Bookmark here

The voices then spoke, "It begins."Bookmark here
