Sleep is for the weak and clearly Ren wasn’t weak. The moon was shining rather brightly as the Fanalis was making his way back to the cemetery. Only 10 more minutes before midnight. Entering the cemetery he posted himself above a tall tree and hid within the branches as the night covered him. Scratching the back of his head he sighed and wondered to himself ”How do I always end up with the night jobs.” Thinking back to earlier on in the day it all started with the crazed old undertaker who just simply loved to cry wolf.
 
Ren had just finished a tournament the night before with his friend Yuurei and was simply exploring the town. He hadn’t really gotten a chance to take in the air of the Zou Empire since arriving. He had been to mission after mission non-stop. He didn’t really mind although he would’ve enjoyed a nap in between, well at least he got to rest for a few hours earlier on. Passing a house he could see a rather large crowd gathered around, what in the right mind would they be doing making such a racket so early in the afternoon. It was just barely passed 2 o clock and people were already riled up, but the question was why?
 
Scratching the back of his head he pondered why in the right mind should he join the fray, then in the back of his head it hit him. Yuurei’s voice echoing in his ears ’Money is essential for us to keep traveling.’ He sighed and made his way towards the crowd, everyone was talking at once so the only words he could hear was ‘no sleep’ and ‘noises’. He had assumed it was probably due to a party but with how strict this place was, he highly doubted it. He made his way through some of the people in the crowd and listened in. The old undertaker stood in the center of a circle speaking in a rather scared tone.
 
”I’m telling you guys, I heard noises coming from the cemetery! I’ve lived around here for more than enough decades to know when I’m imagining stuff.” People simply brushed his thoughts off and turned and left. The only person who stood was Ren, although he remained silent. The Old man was about to turn and walk away when Ren grabbed him by the shoulder. ”Maybe I can help with whatever is going on.”
 
The man’s eyes sparkled with hope as he looked up at Ren. ”Yes Of course, I’ll pay you but just do whatever you can to stop those brain numbing sounds. Recently I’ve been kept awake by moaning and scratching sounds coming from the cemetery I have no idea what it is, Every time I go, the noise just seems to leave but whenever I try to rest it comes back louder than ever. Please do something, I can’t take this anymore! It always happens after midnight and I can never rest cause of it! I haven’t slept in days boy, please do something!”
 

Ren nodded in and patted the man on the shoulders. ”Leave it to me.” With that said, He turned and made his way back down the road to explore and waste time.

He chuckled silently to himself as he remembered how he got himself into this mess. Being stuck at the top of a tree with four minutes before midnight, isn’t that just wonderful. His sarcasm was at an all time high and he seriously just wanted to rid himself of whatever could be making that noise. Before he could ponder about anything else he spotted a rather skinny figure making his way towards a grave. Ren made his way down the tree silently and followed behind the man, making sure to stay 10 meters behind. He couldn’t risk getting caught no matter the cost, it would only cause even more trouble for him. Making sure to watch his step he followed, The man stopped at a grave and Ren stopped in his tracks. Just as the man turned to his right, Ren dived behind a tombstone trying his best to hide and not make any sounds.
 
He tried to peek off the side of the tombstone but the man continued to search around for any witnesses. With his back to the tombstone he focused on not getting caught. The frail man turned his attention back to the grave and began speaking commands in a very low tone. Ren’s hearing picked up a bit of mumbling but he felt a chill crawl down his back. This man was bad news. Jumping out of the tombstone he landed on his feet and unsheathed his blade as he pointed it towards the frail man. ”Step away from the grave sir or else face the consequences.”
 
The frail man turned as he was caught off guard. He hissed at the Fanalis and spoke in a rather raspy tone. ”You insolent fool, You’ll do wise to stay out of my way, But that’s not the case at the moment, my companion will finish you off. Come from down under and protect me you pitiful soul.” He raised his hand in the air as scratching and moaning sounds came from the grave. A cold chill ran down Ren’s back but he knew he had to finish off whatever was going to come out of that grave quick. He was sickened by the sight of a skinless boney hand trying to grasp the earth. He had heard stories of people who could raise the dead, He knew what had to be done and he would spare neither of them. ”You fool!” Ren ran at full speed past the man in robes and jumped ten meters in the air. Just as the skeletal creature tried to pull itself out, Ren’s body came crashing down right into the grave at 15 meters per second. His fist impacted the skeleton and reduced it to mere shattered bones underneath his fist. The grave grew in depth from the impact instead of causing a crater since it was already a rather deep hole.
 
The man hissed from the top of the grave as dirt and debris covered the air around Ren. He was quick to jump from wall to wall and make his way out of the grave. ”You Insolent Beast! …..BLACK MAGIC!!!”Just as his foot landed on the top of the grave he was impacted by a rather powerful punch which sent him flying right into a tombstone. The tombstone cracked from the impact as Ren spat out a bit of blood and tried to focus on what was going on. How did that little frail person hit him so hard. That was a good hit but that was the final straw. Ren got up to his feet and stretched his back a bit. The man fell silent at the sight of Ren getting back up so easily after that attack. He began to sweat and panic as he took several steps back. ”Stay away from me, Don’t come any closer you beast, What are you!! Stay away!”
 
Without saying a word Ren jumped up 2 feet into the air and landed into a quick sprint towards the man. Cocking his left arm back he roared three words. Grovel Beneath Me! As those words were said, His left knuckles made brutal contact with the man’s chin as he was lifted off the ground from the impact. But before he could go any higher Ren reached with his right arm and gripped the man’s throat tightly with his bare hand and slammed him at full force right into the ground beneath him. The man let out a gasp as his face and chest bones shattered from the furious impact. Blood spurted from his mouth as Ren let go of the man.
 
He dragged the lifeless body back to the old undertaker and explained what had occurred. The undertaker was excited to be rid of the noise and handed Ren the money without hesitation. Now that the night was over, it was time for Ren himself to get some sleep
