~ Starting Chapter ~


A shadow could be seen going further and further away, as if being hurled into the center of the shock. The shadow of a pitch dark beast. Its mane's shine was faint but bright.


The shaking palace. The garden with heat haze shimmering. The wrenched summerhouse. The crushed and twisted shadow right at the side.

Sanshifs eyesight cut through everything, and spotted the ggateh that was about the close. She sprung up without hesitation, dissolved her body and pursued tightly behind.

Her hand -- her hand extended on its own. Her fingertips were following suit. --Just a little more.

Suddenly, the mana was cut away from her back. The mana that surrounded her suddenly had a different color, a different smell, and a different touch. She had entered the alternate world.

She extended her arms using all of her powers, and aimed her grab at the dull golden shadow that was running away. Got it! She could feel.

The shaking rooftops. The roads with heat haze shimmering. The wrenched trees. Everything that was shaking as if in the midst of a tsunami suddenly recovered their shape all at once. At the same time, Sanshi was barely sucked into the dull golden shadow.
