BigDamnTable 28 - Sons
Character(s): Mitsumasa Kido
Mitsumasa Kido entered the training hall. Inside, the sounds of active workout could be heard. Dozens of little boys were giving it all on the training devices. The businessman watched them for a moment, letting his gaze wander around the huge gym. He took in all the occurring scenses, all the sweat, grindes teeth and occasional tears. From the sparring ring, shouts from a heated battle wafted over to him.
He sighed deeply.
,I am so sorry… my sons. But this is nessecary. Else, you won’t survive. Else, the world won’t survive…’
It all still seemed like a dream, even after all the years that had passed. His thoughts went back to that day in the Greek ruins around Athens. Back to that day that had changed his life for good. He and a few bussiness acquaintances had gone on a week-long trip to Greece, exploring Athens and a bit of the countryside. For some unknown reason, Kido had felt the urge to do a s
BigDamnTable 29 - Birth
One scream stopped, another began.
In a tiny Italian town, a woman just gave birth to a girl.
Woe, she does not know she won’t survive the next minute. Woe, she doesn’t know whom she had given birth to.
However, she dies smiling. With a last glimpse of her daughter, her name on the lips.
Woe, she does not know. But it is like Athena has blessed her last seconds on Earth. For the woman’s last feeling is happiness.
But she didn’t know. Nobody knew, nobody knows.
Athena. Not Sasha. Athena, goddess of war and of wisdom, the one goddess who fights for justice and mankind. It is her the woman gave birth to. The powerful deity, born as a mere human, born from the womb of a mortal woman. Younger sister to the boy with the purest soul, doomed to become her nemesis, Hades, Lord of the Underworld.
But Athena is the goddess who fights fort he mortals. She holds those creatures dear. So she is not

Character(s): Shiryu, Shunrei
The young man opened his eyes. Before him, the waterfalls of Rozan thundered into their deep pit. When he looked around, Shunrei came running up to him.
„Shunrei.“ Affection rang in his voice and lay on his face, as he watched her approaching.
„Come, Shiryu! Diner is ready! Time to eat.“ She grabbed his hand, and he let himself get dragged on his feet. The Dragon Saint chuckled and gently stroked her hair.
„I heard you, Shunrei. As you can see, I am already on my feet. Let’s go.“
When they walked towards their cabin, he asked : „So, what did you make?“
„Something I never tried before… chicken with sweet’n sour sauce, and rice.“
„Oh, something new? Now I’m curious.“
Finally they arrived, and Shiryu took seat at the small table. Shunrei vanished into the kitchen. After a minute, she reappeared, two
BigDamnTable 44 - Circle
The waters of Rozan thundered as they fell down into the deep pit. On one of the rocks reaching out over the crevice, a small figure sat, all alone.
,So it has begun anew’, Roshi, the former Gold Saint Libra Dohko, thought.
Just earlier that day, his friend, the Aries Gold Saint Mu, had visited him with tremendous news. A new Pegasus Saint had arisen, and Athena herself was stirring. Already the two of them had met. The goddess and the Pegasus Saint.
His thougths went back two hundred years ago. To the time he had found a kid who had awakened his Cosmos all alone, to free a riverbed from rocks and to save the outskirts of his hometown. A boy who had turned out to be Pegasus, the godslayer at Athena’s side.
Before his mind’s eye, all the things they had gone through together, flashed like a movie.
,History repeats itself. A new Holy War is about to begin. I wonder… what sacrifices wil
BigDamnTable 38 - Touch
Character(s): Aiolos, Saga
Saga opened his eyes. Sunlight streamed in through the window. After a second without orientation, he remembered that he was in the Sagittarius Temple. In HIS room.
He glanced to his left.
There Aiolos lay, still asleep. Saga smiled. His fellow Gold Saint looked even more peaceful than he already did when awake. There was no sign visible oft he incredible power that lay underneath. One wouldn’t think that Aiolos was a warrior, the way he looked right now. He emitted just too much peace and calm.
,Aaah, Rosu… I envy you. Despite being a warrior you still maintained that innocence of yours.’
He gently touched Aiolos’ nose tip, caressed his eyebrows, genly brushed the finger down his cheek. Aaah… how smooth Aiolos’ skin was. And how warm. The energy benath seemed to flow through the fingertip right into Saga, like electricity. A feeling that Saga did not disapprove of at all.
The Gemini placed a gentle
A Bloody, Stupid Miracle The day we’d cured the human condition was the day I put a bullet through my head and didn’t die. It was also the day I realized how scared I actually was of death, and after hours of muscle ache from holding that gauze against my open skull, after the wound closed and everything went back to normal, I had myself a good old-fashioned brainstorm. How ironic.
But when summer came, everything had fallen to shit. The air scorched my skin and parched my tongue every time I took a breath. The sun glared down on a rapidly-collapsing world, full of the undying bastard children of cruelty and misfortune. What was one to do when their cells regenerated faster than they decomposed?
My feet hit the pavement, now littered with jagged bits of glass to snap at my toes, thoroughly baked by the blazing ball of bitter disdain high overhead. Today was worse than yesterday. Though I’d often wondered the purpose of it anymore, I
