Kaiden's plane had landed in Shibuya an hour ago. The plane ride itself had been as pleasant as one could expect a ride in coach to be. Not that Kaiden would have complained, he was just...happy wasn't the right word. Content maybe? That seemed like a good enough word to describe how he felt about finally being able to visit Japan. The Land of The Rising Sun. It had been a place of intense interest for the young man for years now. It was like a melting pot of everything that inspired Kaiden as creative. Because of that, he should have been more excited. Yet, he couldn't help but find himself sighing heavily as he slung his backpack over his shoulder. Pulling his wheeled briefcase along behind him as he walked the streets.
Kaiden was nervous, anxious even, and it was almost overwhelming. Enough to make him consider turning around and head back to Maine. Back to the safety that the world he was familiar with offered him. The only reason he couldn't bring himself to do it was because of the disappointment he could already see on his mother's face. She had worked so hard to get him here. He'd basically be spitting in the face of all that hard work by turning back now. The young man let out another sigh. His knuckles turning white as he tightened his grip on the handle of his briefcase. "I can do this." he muttered, a clear lack of confidence in his statement present in his voice.
It was late, and while the streets were still filled with people, it was by no means as crowded as it could have been. Which was good for Kaiden. Because he didn't too well in large crowds. As he continued to walk though Kaiden couldn't help but get the feeling he was being chased by something. It caused the hair on the back of his neck to stand on end. It was just his imagination though right? Surely no one would be interested in someone as mediocre and small as himself. "I better hurry to the hotel..." a whisper as he picked up his pace.
Kaiden wasn't too far off from the truth though. Someone, or rather, something, was indeed following him. A mysterious force trying to push itself free from the barrier between worlds. As it attempted to do so the world would react. Streets lamps began to flicker and strange lines of coding began to display along the screens of various bits of technology. Those currently engaged in phones calls found them suddenly cut short and the crackling of painful white noise forcing them to move their phones from their ears. Whatever this force was fast approaching it and only one thing was certain about it. It and the effects it produced were following behind Kaiden as he walked.
