How long... How long had it been since she been stuck here? It was an idle thought that drifted through the bio-android's mind as she found herself trapped within the plane of existence that was neither dead or alive, nor even Heaven or Hell for that matter. This particular place, the 'Cave of Trials' was a secret training ground that Reikiko had employed ever since she trained under the Prince of Demons. And yet it appeared she had failed yet again. During her training to grow more powerful Reikiko had found herself trapped within this cave that seemed to turn her dreams and nightmares into reality, and to make matters worse she had succumbed to them once more. To lose yourself within a dream was something that could either be a beautiful blessing, or a haunting nightmare, and for Reikiko it was both.
She had just awakened, a nostalgic warmth coursing through her body as she opened her eyes to gaze at the stone ceiling above her. She could sense it, the absence of that one person she cared so immensely for. Where had Kaula disappeared to? Rather, how long had she been trapped within that dream? Slowly climbing back onto her feet the bio-android felt something was missing, and it wasn't just her usual slumbering anger and hatred at the recent events. No, it was as if she was forgetting something important, and for a peculiar reason she couldn't even remember anything about the dream that had kept her captive for so long.
"The young master might have more clues... Perhaps by completing Beelzebub's training I will figure out what is missing."
She had returned, but for what reasons remained to be seen...
