Bushido: The following story is a remake of "Kamen Rider Days", originally written by Kamen Rider Chrome. I do not own Kamen Rider nor School Days.
Ryuji groggily woke up to a dark room, with him stuck to a wall. His mouth was covered by a plate and his limbs were locked by white, cylinder-like, restraints. There were several men in armored suits.
"Not so tough now, are ya, freak?" one soldier taunted.
Ryuji growled behind the mouth plate.
Another soldier laughed, "Careful, he might bite!"
"What the hell is he gonna do? He's up there and we're down here!"
Just then, the cell door opened, alerting the two soldiers and they aimed their rifles at the door.
"Who's there?" the first soldier demanded.
His answer was a punch in the face, while the other soldier got kicked in the head, effectively knocking out both guards. The assailant stepped into the light and revealed himself to be none other than Warren Smith.
He shook his head and sighed, "Why do you always get into these messes, Ryuji? So, you got captured?" (Warren is voiced by Crispin Freeman)
He removed the face plate and Ryuji replied, "Got careless." (Ryuji is voiced by Steven Blum)
"That's what you get for being cocky," he retorted.
Ryuji glared, "Are you going to let me out or not?
Warren looked thoughtful, "Hm...I think I'll let you hang around for a bit."
The restraints snapped and Ryuji was freed. They had been used to inhibit his powers.
"Come on, kohai. You got a promise to keep to a very special girl."
Ryuji groaned, "Would you stop calling me that!"

Kamen Rider Days Vol. 1: New Beginnings!
Mission 1: The Path of Bushido!
The ChronoLiner flew out of the portal and landed in front of the Katsura residence. Ryuji stepped out of the time-traveling train and sighed. He was dressed in his trademark black bomber jacket and black jeans.
"Good to be back," he sighed.
He blinked as he was glomped two girls. One was his beautiful girlfriend, Kotonoha Katsura. The other was her adorable little sister, Kokoro.
"Welcome home, Ryuji-kun," Kotonoha greeted with a smile. (Kotonoha is voiced by Danielle Judovits)
"Welcome home, Ryuji-niichan!" Kokoro beamed. (Kokoro is voiced by Luci Christian)
Ryuji chuckled, "It's good to see you two." He really was happy to see them. These were his two favorite girls in the entire Multiverse.
Kotonoha frowned, "Where were you? You were gone for almost a week!" She'd been worried sick but now she was elated to be reunited with him.
"Yeah! It was boring without you here," the little girl pouted. She'd been told the truth when she asked her sister where Ryuji had gone.
Sand poured out of Ryuji's body and formed into Loki, the Ifrit Imagin. He wore a robe, hood and cloth mask. The only clue that he wasn't human was the horns on his head. "Why don't I make us all some lunch?" he offered as he went inside. (Loki is voiced by Vic Mignogna)
Kotonoha and Kokoro gasped when they saw the hooded Imagin but Ryuji said, "He's alright. That's Loki, my Imagin partner."
Kotonoha blinked, "Your partner?"
He nodded, "He'll be helping me fight the Imagin that are in this world."
"Imagin?" She had never heard of Imagin. What were they? Ryuji would tell her when asked.
Warren approached the three kids, "Kotonoha, I heard your parents are on another business trip, right?
Kotonoha blinked, wondering how he knew, "Yes."
"Would they let Ryuji stay over at your place?"
Ryuji blinked, "Huh?"
"I would need to ask..." she blushed.
Warren smiled, "I'll do it. Somebody has to take care of my kohai."
Ryuji growled, "I'm not your kohai..."
He ignored the growl and went into the house, "I'll persuade your parents to let Ryuji stay at your place."
Kotonoha and Kokoro hugged Ryuji tighter. They get to have Ryuji all to themselves, all the time now.
It had been a week since Ryuji decided to remain in Kotonoha's world. Days earlier, his brother, Ryuki, and the others had come to visit to give them their regards. The couple was currently in school, getting ready for class.
"Now then, everyone," Miss Hibiya called. "Before we begin class, we have some new students joining us today." The class mumbled amongst themselves as Miss Hibiya turned to the door. "You may come in now!"
The door slid open and two teenagers walked in. They weren't dressed in the standard uniform.
The first was a girl with snow white hair that went past her shoulders and two elbow-length bangs that framed her face, blue eyes that appeared to be as cold as ice, and fair skin that was almost as white as her hair. She was dressed in a low-cut blue corset with short, white puffy sleeves and a high collar. She also sported a sleeveless blue trench coat that flared behind her which was shorter and pleated in the front. Around her neck was a blue choker with a diamond, shaped like a snow flake. She also wore a pair of black, elbow-length, fingerless, gloves and knee-high socks. She wore blue shoes on her feet. She also had an impressive bust, which made most of male populous of the class drool. She had a stoic face.
The second was a young man, who was a head taller than the girl, had black, spiky, hair with four bangs, styled back like horns and had red, lightning bolt-shaped, streaks in each bang. He had dark blue eyes, and slightly tanned skin. He wore a long-sleeved black jacket with a high collar and ruby gems on the shoulders, collar tips, elbows, and the end of the jacket, over a black sleeveless shirt with a red stencil of a serpentine dragon, with its body in a circle as the head met the tail and the wings stretched outward. He wore black gloves below his elbows with a ruby gem on them. He had black jeans with ruby knee pads and black, calf-high, motorcycle boots. Around his neck was an emerald crested, golden cross-shaped medallion. He had a long object wrapped in a blue obi that was slung on his shoulder. Some of the girls were drooling as they gazed at him.
The girl bowed and greeted in a monotone voice, "I am Yuki Fudo. It's nice to meet you all." (Yuki is voiced by Kelly Sheridan)
The boy cast a dark glare upon the class, "I'm Yuji Fudo. And if any of you hormonal losers look at my sister funny, I'll cut your eyes out." (Yuji is voiced by Johnny Yong Bosch)
Many of the boys paled while the girls blushed.
'This guy's nuts...!' the boys thought.
'This guy's hot...!' the girls thought.
Kotonoha blinked, "That man..."
Ryuji looked to Kotonoha, "What's wrong, Koto-chan?"
"That man... He has the same kind of eyes you had when you first came here. Eyes filled with sorrow..."
Miss Hibiya smiled, "Now that introductions are done, why don't the two of you take the empty seats next to Katsura-san. She's the class representative, so she'll take care of the two of you."
The two nodded and walked up to the desk where Ryuji and Kotonoha sat.
Kotonoha smiled, "It's nice to meet the both of you! I'm Kotonoha Katsura and I hope you come to enjoy your time here, at Sakakino."
Yuji was the first to take his seat, on Kotonoha's right, and bowed, "And it's a pleasure to meet you, Katsura-san. My sister and I will be put in your capable hands."
Yuki bowed, "Hello." She then took her seat, next to Yuji.
Ryuji frowned softly, 'Something's not right... This guy... He doesn't smell...entirely human...'
Yuji turned to look at Ryuji and whispered, "Is there something you find distasteful of me, Dead Man?"
Ryuji growled and slammed his fist on the desk, "What was that, asshole? I dare ya to say that to my face!"
The other students grew alarmed by Ryuji's outburst, fearing that a fight was going to break out. He'd already garnered a reputation of being extremely violent.
Kotonoha blinked, "Ryuji-kun, what's gotten into you?"
"I believe I only asked you a simple question," Yuji replied. "If I offended you in anyway, then I am at fault." He smirked, "I meant no disrespect."
Miss Hibiya smiled, "Well, it's wonderful that everyone has already become such good friends!"
Otome sweat-dropped, "Wow, Miss Hibiya sure is something..."
Kotonoha, Ryuji, and the Fudo siblings were walking through the halls of the school. Ryuji had taken Otome's place as assistant class rep, so he joined Kotonoha to give the tour. He also tagged along to keep an eye on Yuji.
"So," Kotonoha spoke up, "how are you two enjoying Sakakino High?"
"I like it," Yuji smiled. "It's quite peaceful, compared to our old school." Yuki nodded in agreement.
Ryuji huffed and stopped, "Alright, I'm getting tired of this!"
Kotonoha turned around, "What's wrong, Ryuji-kun?"
He pointed to Yuji, "Koto-chan, I don't trust this guy, plain and simple! I can tell he's hiding something!"
"That doesn't mean you have to be rude!"
Yuji held his hand up, silencing her, "It's alright. It's obvious your boyfriend has something against me, so I'll deal with this."
Ryuji glared, "You're not human, are you, Fudo?"
Yuji chuckled, "You have a good nose, Dead Man."
"OK, why do you keep calling me that?"
Yuji wore a serious face, "You reek of death and ash. To be honest, it's sickening. A smell that I can't stand, even if my life depended on it..." He clenched his fist as it shook almost violently and Kotonoha noticed it, if only for a second. She saw, what appeared to be, a painful expression on the boy's face.
He scoffed, "If you think my stench bothers you so much, then so does yours...dragon."
Kotonoha blinked as she turned to Yuji, "Dragon?"
Yuji smirked, "Hm, you're the first person here to find out what I really am. Impressive. But to be more exact, I'm a Manakyte."
Ryuji snorted, "Whatever, but that smell you have makes me want to fight you..." His fists were clenched.
Yuki got behind Ryuji and aimed a pair of silver S&W Revolvers at the back of his head, "You will not touch my brother..."
Kotonoha gasped, "Ryuji-kun!"
Ryuji smirked, "Go ahead. I've healed from worse."
Yuji paled for a second and shook his head, "Trust me, you don't wanna tempt her. She can be pretty menacing when she cuts lose." Yuki glared at him and Yuji sweat-dropped as he pointed at her, "You know I'm right!"
Ryuji snorted, "But I have no time to waste here. Koto-chan has a student council meeting so I gotta wait for her. However, Fudo, one day I want to fight you."
Yuji nodded, "That's fine. Weapons, no weapons... It makes no difference. As long as there's no interference from the students or faculty then I welcome your challenge with open arms, anytime, anywhere."
Ryuji then cast a feral grin, his canines flashing slightly in the light.
"Yuki, let's go. We have some things to do." He walked away.
Yuki nodded and lowered her guns. She then bowed slightly to the couple and whispered, "I hope we can all have lunch together." She then ran to her brother's side, leaving the couple alone.
Kotonoha walked over to Ryuji and sighed, "Do you always have to start a fight with everyone you meet?"
"I just don't like the new guy," he replied.
"You don't like anybody."
He turned and looked her in the eye, "But I love you and Kokoro-chan."
She held his head and kissed him, "Just promise you'll try and get along with them. I'd rather you have more friends than enemies."
He sighed, "I'll try, but it won't be easy. He knows what I am, and I can tell he has something against Orphenochs. He reminds me of Craig."
She smiled, "At least you two didn't kill each other on sight." Ryuji chuckled.
"Ryuji!" Loki called.
Ryuji blinked, "Loki? What's up?"
"There's an Imagin that just surfaced and it's attacking the local mall!"
Ryuji activated his watch's compass/radar mode, "Looks like it's time to work and earn my pay!" He looked to Kotonoha, "I'll try and hurry back. Gonna take a trip to the mall."
She kissed him on the cheek, "Be careful. I'll be in the meeting."
He nodded and ran down the hall, disappearing from view. He would need to be quick to get to the mall.
Ryuji ran through the streets and toward the entrance to the Sakakino Mall. He saw the Imagin, which was themed after a Venus Flytrap. He would have had his belt out if he wasn't gawking at what the Imagin was already fighting. It was a large dragon-like creature with copper scales, with some tints of green and yellow, large wings with skin-like membrane stretching down to its tail. It had broad shoulders, thighs, and horns, as well as menacing copper eyes.
"What the hell is this thing!" the Flytrap Imagin demanded as it avoided one of the monster's bites.
The dragon roared, irritated that its meal kept running away.
"C'mon, I thought you Imagin were tough!"
Ryuji turned and saw Yuji and Yuki by a tree. Yuji had, what looked like, a Duel Disk on his left arm. He remembered Ryuki having one in the past. Yuji's Duel Disk was metallic blue and was shaped like a dragon's wing, with a red gem in the center.
Ryuji gawked, "Fudo?"
Yuji stared back, "Hasuma? What the hell are you doing here?"
He pointed, "That's my line! What the hell is going on? Don't you realize that's an Imagin you're fighting!"
"Duh, that's what I'm doing!"
The Imagin impaled the copper dragon and it shattered in shards of light, "Don't ignore me, you fools!"
"He's mad," Yuki observed dryly.
"Now look what ya did! You distracted me," Yuji accused. "I would've killed that Imagin by now!"
Ryuji scoffed as he pulled out his Ifrit Belt and Pass, "Yeah, right! Just sit back and let me do my job!" He swung the belt across his waist and it automatically locked together. The buckle resembled a pair of fanged jaws framing a stylized letter 'I'. Ryuji then pulled out a train pass and swiped it over the belt buckle. "Henshin!"
Dark blue shards of energy encased his body and materialized into a new form. He now wore a dark blue bodysuit. He had black gauntlets and boots with silver rings around the wrists and ankles. The chest plate was pitch black. He had armored plating attached to his thighs and upper arms. A silver stripe resembling a train track ran down the middle of his helmet and his torso armor, back and front. Finally, a black visor with horizontal slits slid over his faceplate and snapped on. The visor's top corners were pointed up like cat ears while the bottom corners were long and pointed like a pair of fangs. The visor's slits flashed red to signal the finished transformation. He was now Kamen Rider Ifrit!
Yuji narrowed his eyes and muttered, "So, that's Ifrit..."
Ifrit popped his neck and cracked his knuckles before he pointed at the Imagin, "Let me tell you from the start; I am pissed off!" Blue flames danced around his hands as they materialized into his signature weapon, the twin Ifrit Dao. He dashed forward and slashed wildly at the Imagin, sparks flying off its chest as it rolled along the ground.
"Damn you..." the Imagin growled.
Ifrit huffed, "As if I'm letting you get away!"
The Imagin drove its hands into the ground and large vines burst forth. Ifrit cut them down but only more appeared as they swung at him and batted him around. Two vines grabbed his legs and the others beat into his body, sparks exploding from the impact as Ifrit grunted in pain.
"Damn weeds..." Ifrit growled as he struggled to free himself.
The Imagin laughed, "And now you die, Kamen Rider!" It waved its hand and the vines grew long, sharp, thorns. They flew toward Ifrit and he shut his eyes, bracing for the attack.
*DOSU! DOSU! DOSU!*
The vines were sliced into pieces.
"What!" the Imagin gawked.
Ifrit opened his eyes and they widened when he saw Yuji in front of him. In his right hand was a katana. The handle's ito (braid) was blue and the same (ray skin) was silver, the kashira (butt cap) being silver as well. The tsuba (guard) was silver, as was the habaki (blade collar). In his left hand was a dark blue saya (scabbard). The scabbard's mouth, down to a third of its length, had a grip wrapped around it. The butt cap had two small sleigh bells hanging off of it from pieces of string.
"What are you doing?" Ifrit demanded. His eyes then widened when Yuji reached into his jacket and revealed a silver belt with a black rectangular slot. He swung it around his waist and it locked magnetically.
"Shut up and watch," Yuji replied as he sheathed his sword and adjusted the scabbard onto his belt and reached into his pocket. He pulled out a black rectangular train pass that had a blue circle that lines connected to six small circles, making it look like a circular circuit board. It was the crest of the Six Samurai. He pressed the button on the buckle and it released tune, reminiscent of a Japanese flute. He then flashed the pass and shouted, "Henshin!" before slotting the pass into the buckle.
White shards of sakura-shaped energy encased his body and Yuji was donned in armor that looked like that of a samurai. He wore a black bodysuit underneath a white do (torso armor) that covered his chest and ribs. He had white, armored, haidate (thigh guards) covering his waist, front and back, white kote (sleeve armor) protecting his forearms, white suneate (greaves) covering his shins with three spikes protruding from them, white tekko (hand guards) covering his black gloves. White, broad, wing-like, shoulder pads covered his shoulders, with white sode (shoulder flaps) underneath. On the front of the armored shoulders, the crest of the Six Samurai rested. He wore white armored boots and a white kabuto (helmet) covered his head. It had a silver mouth plate, blue insectoid eyes, white wing-like protrusions framing the face, and gold, antenna-like, horns. The eyes flashed blue, signaling the transformation.
"Another Rider?" the Imagin gawked.
Music - Hiten-Mitsurugi Ryū (Battle Mode)
Yuji replied, "I am the blade of justice! The harbinger of hope! The warrior of redemption! I am Kamen Rider...Bushido!" He drew his katana and pointed to the Imagin, "Let me tell you from the start; you won't win!"
The Imagin sent his vines at Bushido, hoping to impale him. Bushido disappeared from view as he flew passed the vines and straight toward the Imagin. He then swung his blade at the Imagin's chest, sand gushing from the wound like a fountain as Bushido continued his assault. He made several vertical and diagonal swings before the Imagin grunted and tried to stab him, but it hit nothing but air.
"Where'd he go?" the Flytrap Imagin demanded as it looked around for its opponent.
Ifrit and the Imagin looked up as Bushido came soaring down at incredible speed and they could see blue energy arcing into his blade.
"Hiten-Mitsurugi Ryū," Bushido muttered. "Ryu Tsui Sen!" Bushido made a downward slash and crouched on his knees before the Imagin.
"I...couldn't even see it..." the Imagin grunted before its body split straight down in two and exploded.
"May the Crimson Dragon have mercy on your tainted soul," Bushido said solemnly as he sheathed his sword and walked to Yuki and Ifrit. "You OK?"
Ifrit growled as he pushed himself up, gripping his twin dao tightly, "So, you're a Rider..."
Bushido nodded, "That's right, I am." He put a hand up, "If you're going to pick a fight with me now, that wouldn't be wise."
"What happened to 'anytime, anywhere'?" Ifrit swung forward, only to be blocked by Bushido's kote.
"If you want a fight right now, then I guess I should honor your wish." He glared, "I warn you, you might die."
"Heard that before."
Music - Full Force
He pushed him back and spun as he drew his sword, slashing Ifrit across the chest. Ifrit grunted but pushed forward as he swung his blades ferociously while Bushido blocked each slash with little to no effort. Ifrit then connected his dao and twirled the combined weapon as blue flames ignited from the blades. Bushido was able to block some vital areas but Ifrit landed a few good hits, the white armor showing several gashes. He also noticed that the scratches began to freeze up, ice collecting within the gaps.
"So, you're a cryokinetic," Bushido observed.
Ifrit smirked, "That a problem?"
"Not really, because I know how to deal with cryokinetics." He ran two fingers down his blade and it began to glow red as heat was being put into it. He swung forward and Ifrit dodged it, the blade cutting through a tree, falling with ease.
Ifrit gawked as he saw that the cut Bushido made was clean, like a hot knife through butter. In this case, a hot katana through a tree. 'Shit! He's worse than Ryuki!'
Bushido explained, "This blade is made of E-Carbon, a powerful material that can withstand extreme heat. Right now, it's about half as hot as a volcano, due to my pyrokinesis."
End music with the record scratching
Both combatants turned and saw Kotonoha running over, Ifrit sweat-dropped when he noticed her breasts bouncing up and down before she stopped to catch her breath. He removed his belt and his armor shattered into shards of energy as he walked over to her. He then pinched her cheeks and pulled.
"OWIE OWIE OWIE OW!" Kotonoha cried adorably as she flailed her arms about. "Ryuji-kun! That hurts!"
Ryuji frowned, "Didn't I tell you not to follow me to a fight? You could get hurt."
"But the meeting was over and I got worried!" He sighed and released her cheeks that were red and puffy. She pouted cutely and Ryuji kissed her cheeks, making her giggle. She blinked when she saw Bushido and asked, "Who is he? Another Rider?" Ryuji nodded and she blinked again when she saw Yuki. "Yuki-san? What are you doing here?" She then gasped and pointed to Bushido, "Then could you be...?"
Bushido sheathed his katana and removed his belt, the armor turning into shards of white energy and blowing away. "Hey there, Class Rep."
Kotonoha gasped, "Yuji-san!"
They all heard clapping and turned to see Warren approaching them, "Well, that was fun to watch."
Ryuji cocked an eyebrow, "Warren?"
Yuji turned to the Wraith, "Hey there, Warren..."
Ryuji then looked to Yuji, "Wait a second, how do you know him?"
"I brought the Fudo twins here," Warren replied.
Ryuji's eyes widened, "WHAT?"
Warren dug the wax out of his ears, "No need to shout there, kohai."
"Would you stop calling me that? So why is he a Rider?"
"Believe it or not, Yuji came here to help you fight the Imagin. Why don't we discuss this someplace else?"
The ChronoLiner sped out of a portal and stopped before the group. A door opened and they went inside.
The couple and the Fudo twins, along with Warren, were now in the ChronoLiner. They shared a booth as Yuji sat across from Ryuji and the two were lightly glaring at each other.
"So," Ryuji spoke up, "did you two take the ChronoLiner to get here?"
Yuji shook his head, "No, we took another train since Ant was busy at the time."
"So you're from another world?" Kotonoha asked.
"You see, Yuji and Yuki come from a world where a very rare species of dragons exist," Warren explained.
Ryuji looked to the twins, "Is that the Manakyte thing you were talking about earlier?"
Yuji nodded, "There are very few of us, only 6 of us in our world to be precise."
Kotonoha gasped, "So you're an endangered species?"
He sweat-dropped, "That's a little harsh, but yes..."
"Doesn't explain what you're doing here though," Ryuji added.
Yuji reached into his jacket and pulled out a picture that he slid across the table. "I'll only ask once; have either of you ever seen this man before?"
Ryuji and Kotonoha gazed at the picture for a second. It was a man who had spiky green hair, dark red eyes, and a jagged scar on his right cheek.
Ryuji frowned, "Never seen 'em."
Kotonoha shook her head, "I've never seen him before... Who is he?"
Yuji frowned, "His name is Ryuho Kiba and he's a rogue Orphenoch from my world. He's an A1 criminal and my mission is to kill him. I received a tip that he was sighted in this world." He looked at Ryuji, "Unfortunately, you're the only Orphenoch in this sector."
"Sorry to disappoint you," Ryuji replied.
"We've been looking for him for quite a while."
Kotonoha jumped into Ryuji arms in a startled manner when she looked to her right and saw the source of the voice. It was a girl with long, straight, black, hair and dark blue eyes. She wore a white sleeveless tunic and white skirt that reached her upper thigh, with red ropes for a belt. She also wore black gloves that reached past her elbows and shin-high black boots.
Ryuji blinked, "Where'd you come from?"
"Hell," the girl smirked.
Yuji rolled his eyes, "Very funny, Asura. There's no need to scare the poor girl."
Asura jumped over the table and into Yuji's lap as she giggled, "Sorry, but I couldn't resist. It was easy to spook her, since I used you to distract these two." (Asura is voiced by Michelle Ruff)
"Let me introduce you." Yuji gestured to the girl, "This is Asura, my spirit partner."
She smiled, "Nice to meet the both of you."
"Asura, must you always act like such a fool when we meet new people?"
Ryuji and Kotonoha looked to the counter and saw a tall man with long, platinum blue, hair, piercing blue eyes, and a stern, yet benevolent, face. He wore a blue robe over a silver chest plate, brass wrist bands, copper arm bands, and a bronze waist band. Around his neck was a glass ball that contained liquid mercury.
Asura scoffed, "Buzz off, old man. I'm just having fun!
The tall man walked over to the couple and smiled, "I apologize for my associate's behavior. She can be a little rude to new people that we come across. Allow me to introduce myself. I am Bahamut. (Bahamut is voiced by Michael McConnohie)
"You're one to talk!" Asura pointed. "You're the one who ate all the chocolate pudding last week!"
He folded his arms across his chest, "I have a preference for elegant foods!"
"It's pudding, for fuck's sake! There's nothing elegant about it!"
Bahamut pointed at Asura, "Foolish demon! You dare speak ill of the chocolate pudding? None can resist the delectable texture, flavor, and rich scent of its greatness!"
Ryuji and Kotonoha sweat-dropped at the argument and turned to Yuji for answers.
He waved it off, "Don't worry, it happens all the time."
Ryuji nodded, "OK... So what are you gonna do since you're target isn't here?"
"Simple. Kill Imagin."
Ryuji slammed his palm on the table. "Well, I got news for ya, pal! This is my turf, and you cost me my pay!"
Yuji cocked an eyebrow in interest, "You're paid to kill Imagin?"
"Damn right I do! And if you get in my way again, I'll-"
Warren slammed Ryuji's face into the table and smiled, "Now, now, no need for heads to fly. Yuji, I think Leon called for you earlier. There's a phone in the next cabin."
Yuji nodded and got up, followed by Yuki, Asura, and Bahamut, leaving the Wraith with Ryuji and Kotonoha. Warren then released Ryuji who had a red mark on his forehead where he hit the table.
"Do you have to get all territorial whenever somebody makes a move before you do?" Warren asked Ryuji.
"The guy's a rookie!" Ryuji argued. "And when did he ever become a Rider, anyway?"
"On the contrary, Yuji has had much experience fighting Kaijin back in his home world. He was Faiz when I first met him."
"So what? He's a ChronoLiner Rider now?"
"No, he's not. He's a MysticLiner Rider. I had him train with a friend of mine aboard his time train that gathers beings with magical power. Manakytes are pretty good with magic, so the owner of the MysticLiner asked to recruit Yuji."
"So the owner was this Leon person?" Kotonoha asked.
Warren nodded, "Merlin Leonidas Monroe the IV. He's a master mage, as well as a strong Kamen Rider. Yuji has been with him, training, until he came here."
"So, is Asura like Teresa?" Ryuji asked.
Warren replied with a small frown, "Sorry, Ryuji, but you'll have to ask him that yourself. And even then, he probably won't tell you."
Yuji and Yuki returned to the others, "I just talked to Leon. He said he found a place for us in town and it also has a garage."
Kotonoha smiled, "That's wonderful!"
"Thank you." Yuji then turned to Ryuji, "Hasuma, I want to apologize for getting in your way earlier, but I did what was necessary to help you, in spite of losing some money. Money is nothing compared to the value of your own life. I'm sure Kotonoha would be happier that you came back to her safely, instead of with money in your pocket."
Ryuji flushed and mumbled, "Like I need you telling me that..."
"Also, I know about Sauron."
Ryuji snarled while Kotonoha shivered. The memory of their first meeting was clear as day.
He glared at the Samurai Rider, "So? You think you can take her on your own?"
"I never said I would challenge her on my own. I am going to help you kill her when the time comes." He extended his hand to Ryuji, "I hope we can work together as comrades in the future, instead of killing each other as enemies on the battle field."
Kotonoha pushed Ryuji from behind and smiled, "Accept his help, Ryuji. You need all the help you can get. And from what I saw, Yuji-san seems quite strong."
Ryuji stared at Yuji's offered hand and scowled. He rudely swatted Yuji hand away, "I work alone. Just don't get in my way."
Yuji stared, "Very well then. Then I ask that you not get in my way once I find Kiba. And you better not complain if an Imagin ends up attacking me first."
"Be my guest."
Kotonoha frowned softly, "Ryuji-kun..."
Warren sighed to himself, 'Should've known he'd be like this...'
"WARNING! WARNING! WARNING!"
A screen showed an Imagin wrecking the streets of Sakakino. It looked like a humanoid jaguar, with a yellow and black-spotted hide, menacing teeth, and sharp claws.
Ryuji grinned, "Time to get to work!" He ran to the door and left.
Kotonoha looked to Yuji, "I know Ryuji said he didn't want your help, but could you at least watch him? I worry about him, and I don't know what I'd do if I lost him."
Yuji stared at her for a moment before nodding, "I understand. Since you asked me, I'll do nothing and observe. Besides, I'm not one to ignore the plea of a woman."
She smiled, "Thank you."
"Yuki, take Kotonoha to the house and wait for me there." She nodded and the two girls left the train. Yuji walked to the door and turned to Warren, "I'll be going then." Warren nodded and Yuji left the train.
Ryuji ran and saw the Jaguar Imagin in his sights. He grinned as he fastened his belt and readied his pass.
"Hey, spots!" Ryuji called.
The Jaguar Imagin turned and snarled, "What do you want?"
"I wanna kick your ass! Henshin!" He swiped the pass over his belt.
His armor formed and he pointed, "Let me tell from the start; I'm very pissed off!"
He crossed his arms and summoned his Ifrit Dao. He charged forward and swung at the Imagin while it parried Ifrit's slashes with its claws. Sparks danced around them as they slashed at each other like beasts. They landed some hits on each other, but neither opponent backed down as Ifrit ducked a claw and went for a sweep kick. The Jaguar Imagin fell and Ifrit did a jump spin as he brought a blade down its chest, making the Imagin grunt in pain.
Nearby, Yuji was on a platinum blue motorbike with wide, silver, trim. It was sleek and looked very aerodynamic. It also had a monitor and a Duel Disk attached to the gas tank. (It looks like Yusei's D-Wheel, but in blue and silver).
"He's not bad," Yuji commented.
Ifrit connected his Dao into their baton form before the blades and his body flared with his Genki. "GenJyu Ifrit-ken! Gengi! Jigoku Zan!"
He dashed forward and performed an X-shaped slash attack right through the Jaguar Imagin as it shouted and froze in place. His body then flash froze as Ifrit was now behind him.
"He's faster than I thought," Yuji nodded.
"You're iced," Ifrit declared as he snapped his fingers and the Imagin shattered like glass. "Hah, easy!"
"Ryuji, you may want to turn around..." Loki advised.
He turned around, "Aw, hell..."
Sand began to gather and form into a giant monster, a Gigandeath Heaven. It roared/squawked as it launched stingers from the bottom of its abdomen. Ifrit twirled his Ifrit Dao and swatted the stingers as they exploded around him.
"Dammit..." Ifrit growled. He spoke into his watch, "Ant, I could use a pick-up."
The ChronoLiner landed in front of Ryuji and he boarded the train. He made his way to the engine car and mounted the bike before he slotted his pass into the bike. He revved the engine and the ChronoLiner took to the sky upon its tracks. The Gigandeath Heaven gave chase as it continued firing its stingers.
Ifrit glared at the Gigandeath Heaven in his viewing screen. "Wanna play dirty? Fine!"
Ifrit pushed the button to release all the ChronoLiner's weapons. A laser turret popped out from the top of the main engine car. The second car opened up to reveal a missile launcher. The third car opened up to reveal bomb slingers that looked like catapults. Finally, the fourth car opened up to reveal a jet platform with a jet that needed no pilot. The laser turrets started to fire lasers at the Gigandeath, causing it to squawk out in pain. Enraged, it fired more and more of its stingers. The ChronoLiner was struck but managed to remain on its rails. Grunting, Ifrit continued to fire. Missiles were launched and homed in on the Gigandeath. Explosions erupted when the barrage of missiles continued. The bomb slingers were also utilized as they bombarded the monster. The jet also flew and fired at the Gigandeath.
Ifrit climbed out of the ChronoLiner via a hatch and stood at the top of the engine car. He had a clear view of the Gigandeath. Gripping his Rider Pass, he swiped it across his belt buckle.
Energy seemed to crackle all over his body. Running towards car No. 3, he got into one of the catapults and was thrown at the Gigandeath. He then executed a flying sidekick as his foot glowed with bluish energy.
"TAKE THIS!" Ifrit roared as he smashed right through the Gigandeath, creating a massive hole in its body. Then, the Gigandeath flash froze and plummeted, shattering into pieces as it hit the ground.
Ifrit did a tuck-and-roll as he landed on the ground and looked back to the smoking heap that was the Gigandeath's remains. He smirked, "And that takes care of that." He then heard clapping and turned to see Yuji who was on a bike.
"That was pretty good," Yuji complimented. "Nice move with the catapult maneuver, by the way."
Ifrit got up and glared, "What are you doing here? I thought I told you I didn't need your help."
"I'm here on Class Rep's behalf, not yours. She asked me to watch and make sure you didn't get hurt. I would've given you some cover if you got into any trouble, but that doesn't appear to be the case."
Ryuji scoffed as he took off his belt, "I can take care of myself!"
"Doesn't mean that she shouldn't be worried about you. Come on, I'll give you a ride to my place. There's a latch you can hold on to. Your girlfriend's with my sister, at my place."
Ryuji sighed and boarded the bike, gripping the latch tightly. "Don't expect me to get chummy with you, just cuz your sister's taking care of my girlfriend!"
Yuji nodded as he put on his helmet, "That's fine." He pressed a button on the side of the helmet and a visor slid down, covering his eyes. He started the engine and sped down the street.
Yuji pulled up to a two-story apartment building in town that also had a large garage. He swung the right wing up and stepped off the back as Ryuji jumped off the side.
"So, this is your place," Ryuji stated.
Yuji nodded, "The rent's not bad and I can even start a part time business as a mechanic."
He opened the door and walked in, followed by Ryuji. They removed their shoes and made their way to the living room. It didn't have much furniture, save for a couch, closed cardboard boxes, and tool boxes.
The girls were sitting together as Yuki was filing Kotonoha's nails. Her hair was also in a braid that Ryuji found to be cute.
"We're back," Yuji called.
"Welcome home," Yuki greeted.
Kotonoha smiled, "Welcome back, Ryuji-kun! Yuki-san has been doing my nails and she even did my hair."
Ryuji chuckled, "You look cute, Koto-chan."
Yuji grinned, "Been enjoying your time with her, Yuki?"
She gave a small smile and blushed. She then kissed Kotonoha's hand, "See you in school."
Kotonoha smiled and stood up, "Thanks for the treatment!" She then walked to Ryuji and looped their arms together as she turned to Yuji, "Thank you for your help, Yuji-san."
"Don't worry about it," Yuji smiled. The couple left and he turned to his sister, "OK, then, let's unpack."
