By tracing the fleeing man's footsteps back into the fields of golden wheat, Shinda and Tetsu would soon come to a clearance. In the middle of the fields was a strangely clad wolfgirl. She yawned and arced her back as she basked in the sun. The wolfgirl then decided to take a nap on top of the legendary sword she was guarding - Hikari Bunkatsu. She had been guarding it for many years, waiting for the Chosen One to arrive and claim it. Unfortunately for the wolfgirl, she didn't exactly have clear criteria about who the Chosen One was. She just relied on her intuition. The man who was running away was nothing more than a petty theif.
There had been rumours about the wolfgirl (adequately named Wolfie) by the villagers. She ensures the harvest of wheat is plentiful each year. One day, the injured guardian of the Hikari Bunkatsu sword staggered through the fields. On his last breath, he entrusted the legendary sword to Wolfie - a youkai who had no intention of eating humans. The guardian then passed away, and his blood fertilised the soil. Some say that Wolfie had to be given offerings, others say that she can change her size at will and she chases chickens at night. Stories said of how she could listen to the many voices of nature as well as humans. Also she liked sleeping in the sun.
Wolfie lay curled up on topf of the sword, her beautiful and fine tail swished about a few times before tucking itself to her side. Her ears swivelled around as she heard footsteps belonging to two visitors. One of a human boy, another belonging to that of a female naga of mixed blood. The half naga seemed to carry something with her, but Wolfie didn't care much. Their scents told her that they were not from around here and their footsteps seemed to show that they were not hostile (for now anyways). Wolfie sat up and silently studied the two for a while, wondering if they were the Chosen One...
The wolfgirl went back to sleep again on top of the legendary sword. What was the Chosen One anyway?
