Episode 10

Thou the kugai
Passages throughout the body, through the darkness
The unbroken line of kai, like beads stretching back in time.

The blood rushes toward my heart,
Pulled from my limbs by a pressure
I have never known.
But wait, that is not blood
That flows through my veins.
It is the power, the source, my destiny.
Time stands still, explodes,
And travels back upon itself like a stream.
At last I know what it is that has drawn me here.
It is the kugai.
