Yona asks if he is telling her about that person because he felt distressed about that person’s circumstance. Shina didn’t reply. She tells him to let her go and if he is the one who made her fall asleep. Shina says no [he won’t]. She tells him that she is going to see [/get] him no matter how many times [it takes]. Shina seems to be on the verge of tears as he bit his lips. Yona hugs him and says that it is alright. No matter what he does, she and everyone’s hearts won’t waver. “Let’s go back together, Shina.” And Yona wakes up again with Ao on her shoulder. She thinks that it is pitch black so is she dreaming again. No, this is.. She starts calling out to Haku and asks where he is.. Then, she notices that he held her hand. She happily calls out his name. Haku asks if she is awake. Yona asks how come she cannot see anything. He apologizes for the fire had died out and in the end, he doesn’t know where they should go so right now, he is thinking what should be done.. She asks if he is hurt anywhere because his voice sounded in pain. Haku says that he is okay.. To his surprise, Yona holds his face and says that he’s lying for even if she cannot see his face, she also clearly knows of his situation since his body is ice-cold and his breathing is in disarray.
She tells him that Shina said that there are intensely resentful spirits attacking them. Haku asks what is that..it is just that his body is a bit heavy, that’s all.. Then, he groans. He is surprised again when Yona puts his head to her bosom. She tells him she won’t let him go [/leave] whether it is because of some ghosts or other things, she absolutely won’t. Haku asks if this is a dream. Yona tells him to get a grip of himself. Haku says no, he is thinking if he is dreaming of some shameless spring dream. She starts slapping his head and tells him to quickly wake up. After Haku stands up, Yona asks if he can move. Feeling ill, Haku says that it generally feels that his body is very heavy. He angrily says that at a crucial moment, he couldn’t see her face clearly which put him in a bad mood, and it made his will to live suddenly surge up. Yona says that is indeed the vigor [that he ought to have]. With the spirits behind them, it was mentioned that actually, he was already possessed [a while ago so he didn’t see her face?]. Haku says that it is pitch black so where should they go. Ao is running ahead so Yona who is supporting Haku says that it seems Ao can smell Shina’s scent. Haku comments that it is more outstanding than White Snake. Yona is determined to go there, and return with Shina.
Meanwhile, Kija says that Zeno and Shina’s aura is very near. Feeling ill Jeha wonders what’s up with this place and this heavy air..it is very painful as if his insides is being cut. It is like he is simply a prey being played on the palm of some unseen beast. And, he collapses in pain that Kija turns around and calls out to him. Nearby, Zeno and Blue dragon had noticed this. Blue Dragon says that they are already near but then, it seems that the Green Dragon is at his limit. While Blue dragon turns to leave, Zeno starts humming that ‘You push. I push back. The one who cries is the loser.’ Then, he charges at Blue dragon and causes him to fall. Sitting on top of Blue dragon, Zeno says that this is a bit rude. He takes Blue Dragon’s sword and cut himself free from the ropes. After Zeno says that he is free, Blue dragon asks what he plans to do, use the sword to cut him down. Zeno says that he won’t do that kind of thing. Blue dragon says that is true for in the end, it is this guy who’ll get injured. Zeno says that is one reason but for him, all of the dragons are Green, White and Blue’s children so he seriously love them tenderly.
One two and three, Zeno chops his arm. While Blue dragon is surprised by that, Zeno says that Jeha is already in danger and there is not much lit candles left in this room. Even if this is quite unsightly, he can only force a breakthrough. Blue dragon is surprised to see Zeno’s chopped arm become covered with dragon scales. Zeno shouts the obligatory ‘yiiahh’ and punches a hole through the wall behind Kija. They call out to each other. Zeno calls for Kija to come over and if Jeha is still alive. Jeha groans and says that he is still alive. Just when Blue dragon calls out that his power is actually.. Kija goes in front of him and puts his hand over Blue dragon’s head. Kija darkly tells him to give back his younger brother. Unfazed Blue dragon scoffs this off as if they are playing some brothers family game. That makes him laugh to death. Kija says that if he is looking for someone to possess then go to him for he doesn’t care since he can carry his [Blue dragon] everything. Blue dragon says that he is no good for the First White dragon’s protection in his body is too strong. Blue dragon manages to grab back his sword and swings it at Kija. The face-off was interrupted by Ao who jumps to Blue dragon. Blue dragon shouts that this squirrel is annoying to death. He tosses it away and says that it is a hindrance.
Someone calls out to Shina. It is [exorcist] Yona. Blue dragon is stunned. Kija is worriedly saying that she suddenly came to this place. She apologizes for coming late and here, this is Yun’s onigiri for him. Puzzled by it, Kija thanks her anyway. She looks at Blue dragon and approaches him. Blue dragon becomes tense and asks what’s with her. He finds himself crying. He asks if she is some divine being. She says that she is only human, a human whom he has no power to resist whether he uses power or body possession. Blue dragon asks why his legs are trembling, tears are continuously falling and he is terrified that he cannot approach her. Yona hugs him and says that she has heard from Shina who told her about him. He tells her that it is so scary.. *scene of him facing the bandits underneath* ..since he was young, he has been considered a taboo and was loathed by others. They used him as a bait when he isn’t used to fighting. Always until he withered and died, he was always locked in the darkness that he can only curse everything. His comrades are only the spirits staying in this place. Yona says that no wonder Shina temporarily lent his body to him even if he is totally pained over how he caused trouble for Zeno and the others.
Surprised Blue dragon asks if the body was deliberately given to him. Yona tells him that Shina is a very nice person and if Shina allows him, there is no harm for him to stay inside. But, it wasn’t easy for Shina to come out from the darkness and see the sky so if he calms down, give the body back to Shina. Blue dragon calms down and says that it is enough, he actually always know that no matter how he struggled, he already cannot go back to his time. He asks why he has this feeling as if he had been always waiting for her for such a long time.. After he left, Shina calls out to Yona and says that he’s back. Kija is delighted that he is back. Haku and Jeha felt that their body became lighter. Zeno says that for the aged, this is truly a waste of energy. Shina apologizes to everyone. Kija tells him not to mind as long as he is fine. Then, Shina realizes something. He covers his face and looks around. Haku says that if he is searching for the mask, it is left outside. Yona asks if he must have it. As Ao climbs on his shoulder, Shina says there’s no need but it is a relic that makes him feel at ease when he wears it. Yona says is that so.
Yona says that they should go back. Haku says that the entrance is sealed. Holding up his hand, Kija tells them to leave it up to him. Then, it became totally dark. Zeno says that the candles have all burned out. Haku says that the fire is already no good. Jeha says that in the end, everyone will be family with the bones in this place. Yona says that is quite a headache. Shina tells them that it is alright, he can see so everyone, grab on to him. Everyone clings on him though Jeha is taking the opportunity to hold Yona so Haku is pulling Jeha’s ear. Shina corrects himself and says that they line up. Yona says that Shina is truly reliable. Shina tells them that their heads might bump here so avoid.. Kija bumps it. Jeha is teasing Kija for being the first [to bump] then he also bumps it. Zeno laughs and calls the two idiots and he also bumps it. Haku tells the three that is enough.
Then, they hear someone shouting. They wonder if it is a ghost or something. It is coming from over there. It is Yun who shouts that he finally found them stupid rare beasts, idiots, they’re slow to death, idiots don’t cause him trouble and it is troublesome to death. Yona asks how he managed to go here. Yun says that he heard some noise from afar so he went to investigate it and in the end, he found another entrance. He complains about it being dark, alone and the onigiri he brought has gotten cold. They all call him mother. He shouts that he doesn’t recall giving birth to them. Yona apologizes to flustered Yun. Kija apologizes to Yun and says that he’ll enjoy the onigiri using his moved heart. Haku asks where the other entrance is. As Yun leads them away, Shina notices a skull. He holds it up to his head and asks it to please, rest in peace. They call out to Shina so he goes to where the others are. And a bit of glowing light is shown near the skull with a mask beside it.
Comment: And, that ends the usual ‘Yona and dragons bonding’ comedy arc and hopefully, the next arc will go back to the main plot. Since this is a light-hearted arc, I guess I shouldn’t have expected more out of it since I think that the ‘exorcism’ is way too easy since it is done by persuasion/talk-no-jutsu from Naruto. =P For an intensely resentful spirit, Blue dragon is too lame. It would be interesting if he realized who Yona is. It would be interesting if he would shout and complain why Hiryuu came only at this time. Why is Shina the one ‘chosen’ and not him? What was his purpose, after all? It would be interesting if Yona gave him some answer about those questions so that we can find out what she wants to do in this lifetime. Perhaps, it is some better answer than what she told the Blue dragon instead of just easily giving up just because it is Shina’s body and his time had passed. Through possession, he can actually ‘live’ again. How about possessing some other animal so that we will have two mascots? =P
In a way, I would want an answer that would make him really rest in peace or at least give him comfort for his suffering instead of saying things that is totally unrelated to him which is, Shina is this and that. ^^; Oh well..the intention is to keep this short and funny so... And, I thought Yun is going to fix that dragon head instead of finding some other entrance. ^^; It turns out that Zeno can do things if he really wants to. Someone give this guy something to hack himself with when needed instead of depending on the enemies and/or their weapons to activate his power. =P Oh ya, even if because of his predecessors/first dragons are protecting him from being possessed, I think the other spirits most likely do not affect him because of his ‘purity’. Aside from Jeha who might still have some hang-ups with his past, they have also affected Haku. Is it because these two have some ‘darkness’? Those not affected are Yona, Zeno and Kija. Not sure about Shina since he was already possessed. Not sure with Yun either. Hehe, not that any of this is important at all to the story. ^^; Scans by 红莲汉化组
Word of the day:
When looking at others makes you feel resentful about the unfairness of life, change your focus. Look to Jesus and follow Him. Life’s inequities are only for a little while. Perfect fairness will be ours to enjoy forever in heaven. ~ Our Daily Bread
