Today the wind blew at a casual speed and the sky was a beautiful blue hue. The hot yellow-white beams cast by the sun heated Celestial City today, making it a humid 86°F. There wasn’t a cloud in sight, leaving the sun to dominate the sky uninterrupted. People moved busily throughout the town on their daily tasks. Children played with wooden swords, fighting it out, while street vendors attempted to sell their cheap products. All is the same in Celestial City.
What a dreadfully boring day.
Ciel Phantomhive strolled through the busy streets of the Market District, his walking stick clicking against the ground with every step. His attire was of the nobler fashion, causing a few heads to turn as he walked by. The people's eyes would linger on him before trailing to the tall, handsome fellow shadowing him. Some of the girls swooned over the suited man, and some, of course years younger, swooned over the dressed up boy striding proudly. Whispers broke out everywhere, and Ciel felt a slight annoyance creep over him. He didn't like people talking about him.
"What was the point of you dragging me out here anyway?" he snaps quietly at Sebastian Michaelis, his butler. He heard his butler laugh softly, which furthered his prickliness. "Why, I thought it would be good for you to get some fresh air, Young Master. Not to mention, there is a matter of business we have to attend here," Sebastian responds airily, a small smile playing upon his lips. It made Ciel uncomfortable, but he ignored it.
Suddenly an arm grabs Ciel by the shirt and yanks him back, throwing him to the ground. Ciel falls to his bottom roughly and looks up furiously to see who his offender was. "Sebastian! What is the meaning of--" A ball of fire blasts the place Ciel had just been standing. A fierce, eardrum shattering roar pierces the sky. His hands press over his ear, trying to block out the deafening sound. Ciel gets to his feet and looks around. "What is that?" the boy shouts to his butler, searching the sky.
The ground shook underneath them as a huge, bronze-skinned dragon landed in front of the two. "Well," Ciel murmurs, the dragon staring him down with his beady eyes, "This was not on the schedule."
