------------------------------------------------
Wind

Roads towards the mountainsides and places not close to the city generally tend to be crap. Potholes, cracks, and shifts between tarmac and dirt are something to be expected for anyone who frequents there with four wheel drive vehicles. But for once, the road to the Shou’s base close by is surprisingly paved and so smooth that Kai thought that they were hovering over the ground.

The only thing that does dampen down Kai’s excitement of a smooth paved road is that of winds blowing up so fiercely that he has to be careful when driving; otherwise the car will get blown off by the strong winds.

“I don’t see the point of having to do a drive towards that base,” Ruki complains, crossing his arms. “There’s already an underground rail to get to their base. But just when the delivery schedule gets close, maintenance problem comes up!”

“I don’t see the point of you complaining this ride,” Kai chides him. “After all, you complained about how dull it is to go on the train through the darkness and wanted a different way to get there just once in a while. So now you got what you want.”

Ruki turns away and mutters some incoherent swear words under his breath.

“Come on, it’s a road trip!” someone from behind them exclaims excitedly.

“It’s not a road trip, Miyavi. It’s a fucking delivery on land,” Ruki corrects the fellow passenger behind him.

“It’s still a road trip! Whoo!” Miyavi punches the air.

“And it has been a while since we’ve last seen what the land is like,” Kai agrees, patting Ruki’s shoulder. Ruki huffs, but does calms down.

“It’s still the same landscape that has been here,” Ruki stares on at the landscape. It’s still in a sad condition. Only the dirt shows some colour, like brown, red, yellow, orange and white with the occasional ponds of water where a river used to be struggles to bring water down from the mountains. How it is still capable of doing that, Ruki doesn’t know, but he gives credit to Mother Nature refusing to give up.

But then something caught his eye as they drove by. It was small and insignificant, but it’s something that was too good not to be ignored.

“Stop the car!”

Kai and Miyavi got surprised by Ruki’s command, but Kai did step down on the brakes.

“Ruki, what in the heavens has gotten into you?!” Kai looks at Ruki, who is too busy putting on his regulator before pouncing out of the car and out on the barren wasteland.

Once he found what he saw, he stops, quickly bends down and digs it out. What he’s holding in his hands is going to change everything they have thought of the very lands that they lived in.

“Ruki, what did you found out there?” Miyavi asks, having put his regulator on while trying to block sand and dirt getting into his eyes. Thank goodness the regulators can still function in sandstorms.

Running back towards the four wheel drive and the two men waiting, he holds up what he has found.

“Look!”

They stare in disbelief at what they’re seeing. In Ruki’s hands filled with dirt, there were several small green plants, still in its growing stages, but they look healthy and growing in this harsh environment.

“No fucking way…” Kai gawks. He doesn’t know what he should be impressed, that green life is actually returning or Ruki having really good eyesight to capture the sight of these small plants.

“This is fucking history in the making here, Kai-chan! This is motherfucking hope right here!” Miyavi has a better way to describe this discovery, which is really fitting at this current situation.

“We’re going to be showing a hell of a surprise for Shou and the others,” Ruki grins widely, despite that being hidden by his regulator.

“Nao is so going to shit himself,” Miyavi responds with a hidden grin too.

Kai takes this as the time to usher them back into the car as the wind picks up speed. He can’t help but share the same grin though, because for the first time in decades, they’ve found the very proof that they can bring back something on Earth.

Once Ruki safely puts the plants on a handkerchief and his hands are free for the time being, Kai holds his hand and they look at each other. In that moment, they know that this discovery will bring them into a whole different road of challenges and struggles. But they won’t be alone to help bring back green life on Earth.
