Death and Grimm

Chapter 9

Death was resting on Charon’s dinghy, staying as far away as possible from the old coot, as usual. This time however, he had Grimm to help maintain a healthy distance of almost the entire boat. “You sure I can’t just swim there?” Grimm sighed irritably. “You know full well that Charon is the only person …[continue reading]

Chapter 10

Grimm twitched nervously as he walked through the pitch black streets of Kyoto at midnight. Today’s target was Oda Nobunaga, the man who nearly conquered all of Japan. He may have been called a fool, but he was not to be underestimated. “Death, make sure your scythe is out and your guard is up at …[continue reading]

Chapter 11

Death growled. Both his arms were still sore from being shot, and he couldn’t understand a word of what Grimm and Oda were saying. After all, he only knew about five words in Japanese, and those were from the anime that Skull made him watch. “Baka, baka! Baaaka!” Unfortunately for Oda, that was one of …[continue reading]

Chapter 12

Grimm stood silent, poised to strike. He had focused as much power into his scythe as he could fit, and was ready to release a shadow bolt of epic proportions. Death’s voice echoed from the rooftops. “Are you ready?” Grimm gave the thumbs up, hoping that Death could see from his position. It seemed to …[continue reading]

Chapter 13

Oda Nobunaga stood silently in front of Grimm. He was a tall and scrawny man, who held himself in a relaxed stance, leaving dozens of openings.

Chapter 14

Nobunaga coughed repeatedly, covering his mouth with his sleeve to keep out as much of the purple gas as possible. Things were getting worse and worse for him by the second. He couldn’t figure out for the death of him why the gas wasn’t affecting the Reapers! Oda’s eyes began to dart about looking for …[continue reading]

Chapter 15

All was quiet in the locker room for the Reaper Castle training hall. However, this was merely the calm before the storm, and Grimm knew this well. He called his scythe forth from inside his chest. The rippling feeling of a large portion of his soul energy being focused and solidified into the cedar and …[continue reading]

Chapter 16

Death stepped out into the arena. Plenty of space to move around, bright lights, and a cheering crowd; this was his territory. Despite his previous concerns, death felt pretty good about this match. He’d gotten a lot stronger lately, and the cheers from his fans invigorated him. Maybe he could actually beat Grimm this time? …[continue reading]

Death and Grimm

Chapter 17

Grimm sat on a bench in Reaper Castle’s locker room, chuckling to himself. He was reliving some nostalgia by reading an old book from his childhood. Sure, its premise of sentient robots that could control the elements was childish, but the series amused him. Although it wasn’t perfect, the characters were surprisingly deep, and the …[continue reading]

Chapter 18

Death stared intently into the mirror just outside the cafeteria, carefully checking his appearance. After he was certain that there was nothing in his teeth, and that his hair was messy, but not too messy. He took a deep breath, and began to psych himself up. “Alright Death, you can do this. You will be …[continue reading]
