Kenjutsu: The Divine Path

Notice » For clarification, usage of the term Kamikaze here would refer to its original meaning as the "divine(protecting) wind" rather its usage to dub the Japanese suicide pilots during WW2.

"I have seized the blade either way... the unguarded Gemstone is next, and thereafter, I will possess the Sword of the Kamikaze." Soon, Kiro reaches the end of the path, seeing a locked gateway that through great effort he pushes over. "This must be the right path to the Sacred Room..."

Kiro finds himself in a gigantic, large, dojo with one Samurai standing ahead, on an elevated platform a distance away.

Looking right and left, Kiro sees hundreds of gateways with other fighters, either standing or entering.

"Well then, foolish adventurers!" The Samurai announces.

"Well then, foolish adventurers!" The Samurai announces. "You have all entered the Sacred Room, congratulations!" He continues.

"Sir!" One fighter asks.

"Sir!" One fighter asks. "According to the prophecy, all paths lead to dead ends but one. What happened to that? How are we all here? Shouldn't there only be one warrior?"

"Ah yes." The Samurai replies.

"Ah yes." The Samurai replies. "All the paths lead to this room, you've all been lied to."

"Ah yes." The Samurai replies. "All the paths lead to this room, you've all been lied to." "Huh!?" The warriors, including Kiro are shocked.

"What happened to the dead-ends and one warrior part?"

"What happened to the dead-ends and one warrior part?" "Well yes, in truth, all the paths are dead ends." The Samurai replies, coldly.

"What? Sir, are you saying we're all going to get killed!?"

"What? Sir, are you saying we're all going to get killed!?" "No, I am saying that all of you will fight to death until there's one of you left."

Shock spreads across all of the warriors' faces.

Shock spreads across all of the warriors' faces. They eye each other, knowing that those'll be the men they either kill or get killed by. Their eyes widen, out of excitement and fear.

"Sir!" Kiro raises his hand, "I have a question."

"Sir!" Kiro raises his hand, "I have a question." "Ask away." The Samurai replies.

"Sir!" Kiro raises his hand, "I have a question." "Ask away." The Samurai replies. "What prevents us from just teaming up on you to get the Sword?" Kiro asks

"Quite obviously, the sword is not here."

"Quite obviously, the sword is not here." The warriors are astonished.

"Quite obviously, the sword is not here." The warriors are astonished. "Only I know where the sword is." The Samurai speaks.

"Because currently...

"Because currently... I am the Kamikaze." The Samurai reveals.

"Because currently... I am the Kamikaze." The Samurai reveals. "And I will assign one of you to be the next Kamikaze."

"Because currently... I am the Kamikaze." The Samurai reveals. "And I will assign one of you to be the next Kamikaze." The warriors are glaring at each other, surprised and shocked.

"To put it simply, one of you will become the Kamikaze,

"To put it simply, one of you will become the Kamikaze, the rest will all die. Good luck, the Kamikaze Reassignment Exam begins right here, right now."
