Kirito looked at Kana as she aimed at the target. He could tell that she has never used a gun before. With a deep sigh, he walked towards her in fast and solid strides.

"Lady Kana." His voice was deep and unexpected that Kana almost lost her grip on the gun.

She turned and found herself looking at Kirito's deep eyes.

"What? You came here to bully me again?" She asked him straight, unmindful of the stares that the other females on the firing range were giving to them.

Kirito is one of the most eligible bachelors in the clan, he has the looks, the ability, and the position to make him such a good candidate for females of marriageable age. However, Kirito has never once dated anybody in the clan. Although he had many flings with females outside of the clan.

It only shows that he does not want to be caught in a compromising situation if he would make a mistake with the clan's women.

For the past several days, Kirito has been pestering her to go out with him. He even told her that the only way she would be allowed to leave the estate is to go out on a date with him.

It has been a week since Ken left the estate, and during that whole week, there has never been a single incident of threat on her life. She found it strange.

But not only her. Hideo and Kirito also found it strange. Kirito even went as far as to file for an indefinite leave from the military base, claiming that his mother is sick and needs him. He even made some of her bodyguards to abandon their posts, baiting the possible assassins. However, nothing happened.

Within him, Kirito has an intuition that Kana might not have been the real target of those incidents. But no matter how hard he tried to reason out that Ken Inamori might have been the target, he could not find any probable reason.

Ken Inamori is just an ordinary assassin from a Japanese couple. Why would his existence cause an uproar in the Yamada clan?

Now, as Kirito looked at the sullen expression on Kana's face, he could not help but feel challenged.

"Why would I bully you, Lady Kana? You are the next Master, surely I cannot be so insolent to do that." He answered, feigning innocence in his looks.

She did not respond and turned her back to him. Once again, she lifted her arms and tried to aim on her target. Then, all of a sudden, she felt Kirito's body close to hers.

His hands covered hers, and his face was so close to her cheeks that she adjusted the angle of her face.

"Let me teach you the proper posture of using a gun, Lady Kana. You see, if you place your feet like this, there is a chance that the recoil will make you stumble backwards."

Using his righ

, Han'nya."

Han'nya's hands on the cloth tightened, and her gaze intensified as she looked at the Oracle.

"If somebody has interfered with fate, it was you, Oracle."

"Han'nya! Mind your words. You are talking to the Oracle." The elderly woman earlier said, as she heard what Han'nya has just said.

Han'nya threw them a defiant glare. The Oracle sighed and spoke in a calm voice.

"It's ok, Obaasama. Han'nya is one of us, I'm sure she understands."

Han'nya stood.

"Yes, I understand. What I did was something I should have done 27 years ago if I was strong enough back then. You took the reason for my existence. Now that my Master has come back, I have no reason to stay here."

The Oracle looked worried at Han'nya's statement.

"What do you mean, Han'nya? Didn't you know that if you stay too long outside this Shrine, you will cease to exist?"

Han'nya smiled cynically. Her pretty face glowed in the dim light of the chamber.

"I will not cease to exist, Oracle. I will continue to live with my Master. For we are originally one. When the time comes, you will also kneel to him."

Han'nya then glided out of the Oracle's chamber. She has a disappointed look on her face as she walked back to where her room is. Upon reaching her bedroom, she sat down on it. With a gentle expression on her face, she looked at the surrounding trees near her window. It would be winter soon, and the time for her Master to regain what is rightfully his will transpire very soon. When it happens, Han'nya will be forever with him.

Han'nya smiled to herself.

'Oh precious Time, let me be with my Master soon.'

As she closed her eyes, she reminisced what happened 27 years ago. It was that fateful night when she lost the only reason for her existence.
