A Chance to Change- Chapter One  


Summary: In a land full of creatures like vampires and demons, people cannot be ever trusted. There are half-blood creatures, their blood mixed with both vampires and demons. They are cursed with both extreme power and hate, and are called "Elflings". Feared for their reputation, they are reviled by the common people. But not everything is certain, and there is a possible chance to change.


Disclaimer: Do I look like an old man to you?






 

Ueda Tatsuya nodded once at the body bouncer, who nodded back. He walked into the club, the door sliding open automatically. A pungent smell wafted over him, the smell of sweat and alcohol. 


He was immediately surrounded by a small bubble of the social climbers, people who sought to make themselves much more powerful than they were.


Small timed social climbers. They weren't worth his time.


Ueda kept his eyes open for any powerful looking aura belonging to a human. He headed straight for the platform, sensing a bright flare of power.


It was one of the blondes, a would-be powerful being with training, but lacking common sense. It was obvious by the wild eyed look, the dancing, and the clothes. 

 
Nevertheless, the energy would sustain him for the last mission.


He tilted his head, using a small amount of the tension in the room to surround himself with a slight aura, compelling power hungry feeders to him.

 

 

The girl drifted closer, pretending to be dancing, while keeping an intense concentration on Ueda. Like a moth attracted to a light, she went in circles, drawing closer. Ueda’s skin brushed her skin; the electric current of power swept through them, a current that showed them for who they were.

 

 

Beings of power.

 

 

Technically, they weren’t in the same fraction. There were vampires, creatures that could drain a human’s life force with a single touch. There were demons, immortals that influenced all entities around them by their chaos. And there were half-demon, half-vampire creatures that had incredible power.

 

 

The Elflings, who were strong enough to destroy anything that got in any objective they were working for.

 

 

Ueda sniffed disdainfully at the raw power he felt. All creatures, no matter what class they were, should have at least some control. The only ones that didn’t have any control were the ones who ran away from training.

 

 

“May I?” She whispered, her face rather hard to see due to the dusky light.

 

 

“Please,” Ueda gave a small smile, unseen, before latching his fingers onto the tanned bronze skin of the girl. Her eyes widened in pain; Ueda sent a strong ripple of energy through her skin.

 

 

Other from the usual power and strength that all Elflings shared, he specialized in pain. He never felt any, and was able to inflict it on others.

 

 

She gasped, and kneeled over. He smirked, and absorbed half her power before the pain faded. The girl looked surprised, and rather gray, sick. Ueda knew that with the loss of power came the loss of memory. He idly grabbed the rest of the magic with his mind before leaving.

 

 

He left the fainted girl, with a small crowd surrounding her.

 

 

He gave lazy grin, tipped the bodyguard heavily, and slipped into a cab, where a hired man was waiting for him.

 

 

“Your master says that you are to…” and the employee explained what the final task would be.

 

 

--*--

--*--
 

 

The realm was a disturbed place. What was originally a peaceful monarchy became an autocratic government. Vampire and demon proliferated; the Elflings started to appear. The magic leaked from them, and spread among some humans. They were not worth mentioning, however, they were only useful for feeding.

 

 

The dance just showed how the three classes drained things from others.

 

 

The problem was, none of the magical classes could identify any other magical divisions unless a flare of power was revealed. Even then, Elflings’ magic was invisible to everybody except for “angels.”

 

 

Ueda studied his fingertips. He wondered about the legends of the so-called angelic beings. Rumors said that if one of the magical classes met one, they had to chance to keep, or lose their power. The catch, however, was that they couldn’t undo the decision.

 

 

He wondered briefly if they even existed, and brushed the thoughts out of his mind.

 

 

Back to the hired work.

 

 

He had signed a contract that lasted a week. It was to track a certain man and slip a threat to him. it would be the last mission, but a difficult one. Ueda wondered if he could do it.

 

 

The man was also an Elfling with the power of manipulation.

 

 

There was no elaboration on what type of manipulation it was. He would have to be careful, especially if it was control over emotions.

 

 

He looked at the lonely, dirty street. Wondering why an Elfling would choose to be there at twelve at night made no sense, but he was paid for it.

 

 

His senses pricked; he stiffened suddenly. He turned around, slowly, while cursing himself for allowing himself to ponder on other subjects.

 

 

The tall, slender Elfling was standing behind him, a slight smile plastered on his face. Ueda bit on his lower lip, wondering how stupid he was.

 

 

“Taguchi Junnosuke, I presume?” Ueda asked. The brown haired man nodded once in confirmation. Ueda lunged forward.

 

 

The man sidestepped him. Ueda stumbled, and lashed out with his foot, but hit nothing.

 

 

Twice more the fool and slow to the boot! Ueda cursed. He worked up some energy and barreled straight into the other’s stomach. Taguchi gasped and bent over. Ueda pinned Taguchi on the ground. Ueda pushed Taguchi’s chest down with his hands, and sat on him.

 

 

“…you’re heavier than you look.” Taguchi mumbled. He raised his hands in defeat. “What do you want from me?”

 

 

“A message from a certain person that you don’t need to know. It’ll be obvious who it is.” Ueda hissed. He leaned down and whispered in his ear. “Give up the key.”

 

 

Taguchi froze. Ueda almost thought that he dead before the taller man asked, “Will you get off me now? This is a very awkward position, you know.”

 

 

Ueda laughed. “Don’t be silly, little bo—” He noticed their position for the first time, and blushed.

 

 

“Cute~!” Taguchi squealed. “You look so cute when you’re blushing~!”

 

 

Ueda fell over at that comment. He grasped Taguchi’s left wrist in anger and sent his strongest current of power through the skin cells.

 

 

Taguchi howled in pain, and curled up on the ground. Ueda sent another jolt, rendering the other’s left hand useless before stopping. Taguchi screamed, his wrist

 

 

A knife buried itself Ueda’s left shoulder. Taguchi’s aura suddenly spiked with power, and the underlying bricks under them rose in the air.

 

 

On the floating platform that Taguchi created, Ueda and Taguchi circled each other at a certain distance. They snarled, eyes flashing dangerously.

 

 

Taguchi moved forward first. He grabbed Ueda’s waist, pinning down the deadly hands. Ueda kicked sideways, and Taguchi winced. The knife embedded into Ueda’s shoulder pulled itself out, and repeatedly slashed at Ueda’s back. Ueda surrounded himself with power, and burned the area around him. Taguchi flinched, and let go.

 

 

Ueda bowed. “I respect your endurance in the ability to resist pain.”

 

 

“And you the amount of strength that you possess.” Taguchi bowed back.

 

 

“So, what shall we call this?”

 

 

“Let’s call it peace.”

 

 

They shook hands, Taguchi rather warily. Ueda thought that it was rather unusual for them forgo to competition in this way. He mentally shook his head. I did finish everything my employer ordered. He shrugged off the uneasy feeling he had.

 

 

Taguchi gently lowered the bricks to the ground. When they were back on the ground, they both staggered. Taguchi clenched at his left wrist, and Ueda fell on his knees from the blood loss.

 

 

Ueda clenched his fist and stood up, trembling. Taguchi bit down on his lips and raised his head.

 

 

“You might want to go and find—“ Ueda started to speak.

 

 

“A person with the power of creation.” Taguchi finished.

 

 

“Exactly.”

 

 

“I’ll be fine.” Taguchi winced as he said that.

 

 

“Oh, I’m sure that we’ll meet again, Taguchi-san.”

 

 

“It seems like that to me as well. My name is Ueda Tatsuya.” Ueda licked his lips. “I hope you’ll be able to find me with just a name.”

 

 

“I’ll be fine.”

 

 

“Are you sure?”

 

 

“Absolutely.”

 

 

“I advise to see Nakamaru Yuichi. Tell him that Ueda send you.”

 

 

“Once again, thanks.”

 

 

“I’ll take my leave.” They turned around. Walking in opposite directions, they left.

 

 

Ueda smiled to himself.

 

 

Maybe they could be friends.

 

 

Maybe, just maybe, if he never lost his temper.

 

 

Taguchi Junnosuke, eh?

 

 

Classified under a KY person. Ueda giggled for a bit, before arriving at his apartment.
