He blinks, and there it is again.

A shapeless man is slumped on the ground. He doesn't recognize him. He doesn't recognize any of them. He's only aware of a feeling vaguely akin to satisfaction ringing in his hollow chest when he turns away from the sluggishly bleeding corpse, eerily calm and composed with a slight upwards tilt at the edge of his lips.

And it scares him.

Because this is nauseating, disgusting, and for all of the crimes that happens on the streets, none of them were quite as violent as this. He wants to go to his father, where it's warm and safe, who tells him 'Everything is gonna be alright.'

And he really wants to believe those words so much except it never is, never works–

He doesn't want to see this.

He doesn't want to see the way the screaming man's skin peeled back so easily to reveal goblets and rivulets of ruby-red blood, doesn't want to see how easy it was to snap his fingers and watch his bones grind into dust, doesn't want to see how he simply lowered his hand and the man's body just seized and distorted and ohmygod ohmygod ohmygod what'sgoingongetmeoutgetmeout I'mscaredthiscan'tbehappeningit'snotit'snot-

A low whistle sounds behind him, and a warm hand lands on his shoulder. He opens his mouth to scream out his terror, except nothing comes out.

"Tsk tsk, what did this one do?" Despite the chiding tone that he had adopted, he could feel the pride radiating off him.

He responds with a voice that is, but isn't his own.

"He's a warning to the rest of them." A casual gesture at the bloody pulp on the ground. He feels nauseous and tries to close his eyes, except they remain stubbornly open despite his fervent wishes. "A warning that I will not tolerate their transgressions a second time."

Horror envelopes him like a shroud when he finally registers these cold, careless words. Speaking as if this man wasn't even another human being, as if he was somehow worth even less than the dirt beneath his feet, how could any decent person act this way–

"Hmm." The man behind him tousles his hair affectionately. "Try being a little less bloody next time, then? The bloodstains are always hard to wash out."

He tries to scream again, and this time, he manages to make sound.

Except, all that comes out of his mouth is a lighthearted laugh that chills him to his core.

"I'll keep that in mind."

--------------------------------------------------

"N-no!" Emilio gasped for air, his eyes hurting from the sudden light.

The brunette was sitting up in his bed, the moonlight streaming in from his open window and illuminating every wrinkle on his white bedsheets. Emilio had another nightmare that caused him to bolt up wide awake. This wasn't the first time he had a nightmare of such a nature. And he hated it. He hated how they sprung up when he went to sleep.

The ten year old clutched at his shirt where his heart was, willing the rapid pumping of his heart to calm down. And the worst of all, he hated how they felt so real. The way the blood dripped off his hands after each murder, the way he casually stepped on dead bodies, the way he walked around looking for his next victim―

"Stop it!" He shouted at his mind, which so helpfully tried to show him even more mental images. The images jerked and faded out, much like the cigarette that was snubbed out by his father. 'Again... It's always the same thing...' Emilio thought to himself. 'Why is it always the same?' He shook as he forced himself to focus and will away the tension his body was feeling.

Even after his sudden alertness faded away to a distant memory, his panting didn't completely give way to normal breathing, making the child feel like he had run through the city twice over.

'Even if I gasp for air, it's like it will never come to me,' Emilio suddenly felt small in the room, his surroundings looming over him with their great presence. 'It's like... I'm drowning.'

"Calm down," an asserting, yet gentle voice spoke up. It was his, yet not his. "Don't be afraid." It resonated in his mind and a presence that he had not noticed before was there although just barely.

"That was a horrible nightmare... " Emilio whispered out shakily.

"It wasn't just a nightmare, don't you remember?"

Emilio gave a pause. "Rem...ember...?" He closed his eyes and tried to recall what happened before he had awoken.

Half-breeds with dark flames literally fused into their bodies surrounded him everywhere, on the floor, dead, or attacking him with weapons dripping with malice. One particularly grotesque Nahatsu stood in front of him, a harpoon-like weapon casually drapped on his arm. Hmph, how imprudent of them to think he was so easily defeated by a few lackeys. Although the fact that they dared to break their promise to him again and took a knife and to backstab him the moment he had turned showed just how much they overestimated themselves.

He was beyond pissed off. Anger rose up in him, so boiling hot that he nearly gave into the pressure of spilling blood, their blood for the promise they broke. He was only being held back by the thinnest thread of patience, which he maintained by killing these things in front of him. The voice from his earpiece that was whispering 'Is that all the great Seiryuu has got? We should have done this long ago, you are worthless after all!' was quickly upsetting the thread thin balance he tried so hard to maintain

...When his anger had reached the fullest it could go, something white burst into his vision. He could feel it surrounding him, growing and churning in response to his overwhemling anger and sadness, like the water at the bottom of a waterfall. It keeps building up, so powerful and alive that it could probably rip apart space and time itself―

"It did." The voice said.

"Stop!" Emilio hissed out through clenched teeth, and everything left his thoughts, although he could feel them pressuring his subconciously built mental barrier. He screwed his eyes shut with the effort of forcing out the memories in his head, so that they didn't take over his subconcious.

'It's not real! There's no point being so hung up on it. Afterall, its just a dream. Its just a dream.' Emilio mentally decided.

The white light he saw in his dreams― visions, more like― reminded him of a little puppy trying to swim against a raging river the other day, only he was now the little puppy, being tossed around before being tore apart and drowned as the river continued downstream, eating its victim alive.

"Emil, are you alright? Would you like some water?" Alaric was leaning against the doorframe, voice cutting through his thoughts and effectively bringing him back to reality. He must have accidently woken his father up when he had that nightmare.

...something white burst into his vision...

Just hearing the word 'water' brought him back to the vision of the energy that was moving and angry and alive, and he didn't want to drown from those visions again.

"Just juice please!" Emilio nearly shouted.

"Just juice please..." he repeated tiredly.

"I'm alright," he said in assurance, more to himself.

--------------------------------------------------

Who are you?

Only three simple little words, and somehow he can't dislodge them from his throat.

He's sitting in a boat. Dark waters stretch as far as the eye can see under a thousand-star-speckled sky. A foggy white mist curls gently on top of the waves, softly lapping at the waters, and he squints at the humanoid shape faintly silhouetted in the distance of the strange, unnatural mist.

Who are you? He tries to ask again, but still nothing comes out. He coughs, trying to clear his throat –and that sound comes out perfectly fine– but when he tries to speak again his voice is gone.

Frustrating, really.



The humanoid shadow's face is tilted upwards towards the starlit heavens, as he is steadily ignored, and he struggles to speak again, because somehow, intuitively, he knows that this is important.

So.



Who are you?

--------------------------------------------------

His name is Emilio.

Emilio D'audrino is a pretty normal boy and the adopted child of Alaric D'audrino. He has black hair and golden eyes, unusual, but not enough that he couldn't blend in with the rest of his surroundings. He is quiet and doesn't talk to others all that much, but he isn't the type to shy away either. He just blends into the background and is content to do so.

His father, on the other hand, is charismatic and inspiring. In the small rown that they live in, he is the unofficial town mayor. He leads a vigilante group called Ateliest that is dedicated to protecting the people and all the things that the actual town mayor should have done. He is like a Robin Hood, protecting those that are neglected by the corrupt government.

In the world where they lived in, people with flames were treated with a high amount of respect while people without flames were literally casted aside. His father had always hated that very idea and had opposed to it ever since he could do so. This had caught the attention of the government and they were quick to oppose it.

Emilio just watched and kept quiet, even if his father came home only once a week, bleeding and practically collasping on him. He just quietly helped to patch up his injuries, giving him a safe place to rest for a few hours. And he just watched as his father rushed out of the house again, a few hours later, to intercept the people the government had sent.

--------------------------------------------------

There it is again.

Roses and daffodils and lilies and hydrangeas; all sorts of flowers that he knows and all sorts of flowers that he can't even begin to name; all in full bloom in the beautiful garden that wouldn't be out of place in the fairyland storybooks.

(Thank goodness for small mercies. This is one of the times where there's no blood no gore no death no–)

"Young master, would you like a cup of chamomile?"

A small smile curls at the corner of his lips, even though he hasn't moved.

"That would be lovely, Vishnal."

Bone-thin hands that are much too pale to be his own reached out and gently received the delicate teacup offered by the butler standing beside him.

Happiness.

Contentment.

Emotions that he has never felt before, not like this, but a feeling almost tangible that beats in his chest and fills him with an indescribable warmth, fingers tingling–

"The mistress is asking for you again, young master. She seems adamant that you move out of the West Wing. "

Vague amusement as the warm feelings fade a little.

"Really now? My answer won't change, no matter how many times she… insists upon it. Father approached me the other day about it, too, and I refused."

A sip of tea.

"Wise choice, young master."

"Thank you, Vishnal."

He hears the words and understands them, but for some reason he still thinks he's missing the entire point of the conversation.

… Well.

Who knows?

--------------------------------------------------

Who am I?

Emil.

Who am I?

Emilio.

Who am I?

Emilio D'audrino!





… Really?

Angkor Wat

...Angkor Wat (Khmer: អង្គរវត្ត) is a Hindu, then subsequently Buddhist temple complex in Cambodia and the largest religious monument in the world. The temple was built by the Khmer King Suryavarman II in the early 12th century in Yasodharapura (Khmer: យសោធរបុរៈ, present-day Angkor), the capital of the Khmer Empire, as his state temple and eventual mausoleum. Breaking from the Shaivism tradition of previous kings, Angkor Wat was instead dedicated to Vishnu. As the best-preserved temple at the site, it is the only one to have remained a significant religious center since its foundation – first Hindu, then Buddhist. The temple is at the top of the high classical style of Khmer architecture. It has become a symbol of Cambodia,[1] appearing on its national flag, and it is the country's prime attraction for visitors. Angkor Wat combines two basic plans of Khmer temple architecture: the temple mountain and the later galleried temple, based on early Dravidian Architecture, with key features such as the Jagati. It is designed to represent Mount Meru, home of the devas in Hindu mythology: within a moat and an outer wall 3.6 kilometres (2.2 mi) long are three rectangular galleries, each raised above the next. At the centre of the temple stands a quincunx of towers. Unlike most Angkorian temples, Angkor Wat is oriented to the west; scholars are divided as to the significance of this. The temple is admired for the grandeur and harmony of the architecture, its extensive bas-reliefs, and for...

Lynching is the practice of a mob of several hundred people who take the law into their own hands and murder innocent people of their wrongdoing. Ida B. Wells was a domestic servant and battled for justice on behalf of the black community. In the article “The Horrors of Lynching in the South”, Ida describes how the white man would brutally kill an African American man just because they didn’t deserved to be treated civilized. Ida mentions three anticipated reasons the African American man was targeted with such ferocious actions. The author also states the true reason behind the treatment the African American man received. Ida was arguing about influencing the African Americans to stand up for themselves and fight back. She included importantly raising public awareness about the lynching situations. The terror of lynching was a movement that eventually escorted to a federal crime.

Managen? Wat Een Onzin

...‘Managen? Wat een onzin.’ Van Jos Verveen. Popper en Verveen over een eeuw aan management theorieën. Jos Verveen betoogt in zijn artikel ‘Managen? Wat een onzin’ (Verveen, 2012) in de opinie-rubriek van het NRC dat de management theorieën van de afgelopen periode niet geheel nuttig zijn. Hij beweert in zijn artikel dat management theorieën die in de afgelopen eeuw onbetrouwbaar en vooral nooit daadwerkelijk bewezen zijn. Zo noemt hij als voorbeeld het bonussysteem waarvan de effectiviteit nooit wetenschappelijk bewezen is. Volgens Verveen zijn de management theorieën die in de laatste jaren gevormd zijn niet empirisch bewezen en dus niet betrouwbaar. En ook volgens de ‘philosophy of science’ van Karl Popper (http://plato.stanford.edu/entries/popper/, 2009, a), Oostenrijks-Brits filosoof, zijn veel management theorieën niet betrouwbaar. Hij stelt namelijk dat mensen bij het vormen van theorieën kunnen kiezen uit oneindig veel mogelijkheden. Van al deze theorieën is echter een deel waarvan bewezen kan worden dat ze onjuist zijn. Nu kan men uit de overgebleven theorieën een rationele keuze maken. Dit gebeurt echter niet altijd. Zo verwijst Verveen in zijn stuk naar het bonussysteem dat nog steeds gehanteerd wordt maar in recent onderzoek als nadelig wordt beschouwd. Deze theorie zou volgens Popper onderdeel zijn van de theorieën die niet kloppen en dus niet betrouwbaar zijn. De filosoof stelt daarnaast ook nog eens dat geen enkele theorie als compleet juist kan worden......

Ti Turning

...demands of the worlds metal industry. Ti Scrap vs Ti Turning Titanium is a key Raw Material to Manufacture Ferro-Titanium 65-70% Grade. The capacity of Nimji Plant is to Manufacture 200 Tons/Month. At present we are Manufacturing on an average 40 Tons/Month as we don’t have orders and our competitors are selling FeTi much Cheaper. It is being observed that if we reduce the price by $0.1/kg we will be competitive in market. 160 Tons/ Month Of Capacity is being Un-utilized. This Un-utilized capacity which is an liability now can be a asset if the plant runs at maximum capacity. For the production of FeTi 65-70% grade, 70% of Ti is required. Hence to produce 200 Tons of FeTi 65-70% grade, we require 140 Tons of Titanium. At present we are using 50%Ti Scrap and 50% Ti Turnings. The cost of Ti turning and Ti scrap is Rs 190/kg and Rs 322/kg respectively. The Present Cost of Titanium in the production of 200 tons FeTi (65-70%) will be Rs 3,58,40,000. If we use only Ti Turning the cost of Titanium in the production of FeTi (65-70%) will be Rs 2,66,00,000. Thus if we use only Ti turning our Per Month saving will be Rs 92,40,000. Drawbacks of Ti Turning Titanium turning comes inherently with impurities such as oil, grease and dust. If these turning are used without processing, oil gets burned and is converted into carbon. Thus the Carbon in the final product increases to 5-7%, whereas the desired level of carbon is 0.1%. In order to use Ti turning, it must be......

Angkor Wat

...What caused the decline of Angkor Wat? Angkor Wat was Angkor was the capital of Khmer Empire from 802 to 1431 AD. It was ruled by ‘god-kings’ and spread its influence and customs through a large part of Southeast Asia. Society was firmly divided into two: the great landowners and the ordinary people. Cambodia was then, as now, an agricultural country. The Khmer had mastered the art of water control and took advantage of regular monsoonal rainfall to create huge irrigation systems. In this way they were able to surplus of rice for export. Trade influenced Khmer society and India became a dominant cultural influence. The Khmer wrote in Sanskrit, the Ancient language of India, as well as in their own language. Most kings practised Hinduism, although some kings became Buddhists in the Mahayana tradition of India and Tibet. The first cause for decline was of Angkor Wat was that Angkor was at war with neighbouring Siam (western Thailand) for over a century. Finally in 1431 AD, the Siamese besieged the city for seven months and eventually took it. They destroyed the temples, taking statues and images back to their capital. A Siamese Prince was made king, while the Khmer king fled east towards Phnom Penh. The evidence for this event comes from Siamese texts and archaeological evidence. At Angkor, the temples were damaged and sacred images defaced. However, it is almost impossible to date this decline precisely, although all scholars agree that no new buildings of stone were......
