[Some moments earlier]

I sighed I didn't get much out of my conversation with Sato. Truly, that man resembled that demonic fox, Satoru. If not for him having a teenage daughter, I would've suspected he was Satoru assuming a new identity.

"Cheer up," Koukyuu said, patting my shoulder. "We'll find out a way there. Though, perhaps the key is to ask the one with the power to seal the gateways."

"Who would that be?" I asked, turning to look at her as we walked with our kids to a nearby park.

"Nyima and her mother."

I gulped. "Ny-Nyima? Y-you mean that blue haired girl who I threatened as a kid?" I whispered, not wanting the kids to hear.

Koukyuu smiled. "So you finally remember her. Yes, her. She'll be the key to saving..."

"I got it!" a kid yelled before slamming into me. A frisbee flew past, hitting the kid on the head.

"Hey, watch it!" the kid yelled as he rubbed his head.

I grumbled. "You should be the one who should watch where you're going," I said.

"Hey, you're that guy from the festival," the kid said as he stepped back. "The one who shot that giant fox. That was so cool! Uh, though you're not as awesome as my daddy."

"Your daddy?" I asked. "Oh right, you're Eri's kid!"

The kid grinned. "Yup, sure am!"

I felt a pang of nostalgia while looking at him. Nostalgia for a time I didn't learn how to appreciate until it was too late.

"So, sorry about bumping into you," he said as he picked up the frisbee. He backed away slowly. "I'll try to be more careful from now on."

The pang intensified. He reminded me of when I was his age.

"Big bro!" a little boy yelled as he emerged from a portal. He ran on ahead of Lei who I remembered meeting during some of my visits to Nine Petal Academy. And prior to that during the Kyuu Seishinian games of long ago.

"Serein!" the kid yelled, running toward the little one.

"What bro doing?" he asked.

I chuckled. The way the kid spoke was funny... just like Dan did...

"Is mister sad?" Serein asked. He looked at me with his big blue eyes. Something about him felt familiar, but I couldn't put my finger as to what it was. Then again, the kid did look just like his dad.

"Me, sad? What makes you think that?" I asked, trying my best to look cheerful.

He crossed his tiny hands together. "Me feel suffering. Mister suffers."

Mister... his speech was closer to that of Yuko and Nori's than my brother's.

"Papa does seem to be sad," Zafi said, looking up at me with his adorable beady eyes. "Must be because of mama and uncle."

Koukyuu squatted down and took out a handkerchief to wipe away our son's tears.

"Mama and uncle?" Serein asked.

"Serein, don't pry into the lives of others," Raul said, grabbing his hand.

"Reminds me of someone," Lei said, glancing over at Nyima. He chuckled as he caught Nyima glaring back.

"Not like you don't pry," Nyima muttered.

"It's you!" I said.

Nyima gulped. "Uh, who are you?" she asked, averting her gaze.

"You don't recall? We met in Kyuu Seishin."

She laughed nervously. "R-really? I don't seem to recall."

I chuckled. Is she afraid of me? So, she likely recalls our original meeting all those years ago. If so, I can't blame her for reacting this way. I did threaten to shoot her...

"Bye," the kid who had bumped into me said. He grabbed his little brother's hand and escorted him into the vortex that Serein, Lei, and Nyima had come from.

"Whatever is bothering you, don't let it get to you," Nyima said. She turned over to Lei. "Same goes for you... and for me as well."

Lei put his hands behind his back in a manner reminiscent of a certain one I once knew. "You're right, but it can really be tough," he said, looking down at the ground.

Nyima sighed. "You're right about that. I sure can be..."

W-what had these kids gone through since I first met them? Why did their eyes contain such sadness? It... it wasn't right. They were younger than I was when I lost my brother.

"Lei! What are you doing here?" a voice called out. I turned and saw Eri and Ocarina make their way to

e has better endurance."

"Yeah, big sister will win," Shandian said, grinning.

"She sure will," Kun said, nodding.

"I sure hope so," Hikaru said.

"Mina's team consists of Iah, Orichalcum, Scarlet, Maiya, and Darin. Wahkan's team is made up of Yen, Stella, Yuzuki, Sirius, and Orion."

"Interesting," Eri said, crossing his fingers together. "I didn't expect to see these many Hoshi in one team outside of Tora's."

Hikaru grinned. "Indeed. Over half of the team is made up of them."

"Sefa's team are Ulissis, Alban, Arima, and Alto," the announcer said.

"Wait, only four? Don't they got more?" I asked.

"Seems that Sefa is trying to conserve the energy of the others," Lei said, glancing over at President Bruno. Alongside him were several others.

The announcer called out the names of the H.E.H. participants and those of Rios, but none rang a bell, thought that was to be expected as they came from another continent than ours.

I watched as one of H.E.H.'s members made their way over to where Ulissis was. Ashynna seemed curious about them as she turned her attention to them.

"That girl, what or who is she looking for?" Hikaru muttered.

"Maybe she's looking for strong mages?" Lei suggested.

"No offense to Ulissis, but he isn't exactly strong."

"That boy looks familiar, doesn't he?" Harmonica asked, turning to look at her husband.

Feng narrowed his eyes at Ulissis. "Yes... Lei, Kun, what is the family name of your friend?"

"Amadeus, why?"

"Is he an angel?" Eri asked.

"I'm not sure," Hikaru said, leaning back against his seat. "I haven't see him use any angelic abilities. But to bear that surname, he must have a connection of some kind to them."

Feng rose from his seat and looked around.

"What's the matter, dad?" Kun asked.

"Do you know Ulissis?" Lei asked, startled.

His father took a deep breath. "No, but I do believe I know who his father is."

"Y-you do?" the two male triplets asked in unison.

"Yes. That he would allow his son to participate in these games is unsettling. That man who hates mages with a passion."

"He hates mages? But his son is one... I think," I said.

"Is he truly?" Feng asked as he sat back down.

Come to think about it, Ulissis has yet to show he can use magic. Magic doesn't affect him, which is abnormal even if he were part angel. So what is the mechanism behind his ability to resist magic? The only conclusion I could reach was that he was an anti-mage. If anyone discovered and ratted him out, he wouldn't only be suspended from participating in the games, his life would be fortified as well.
