Action / Drama

Chapter 1

24 year-old Sawada Tsunayoshi was walking his way to work when suddenly, pink smoke enveloped him.

The next thing he knew, he was in the park with a wailing 5 year old kid in front of him. He crouched down in front of the kid in a seemingly cow printed suit, trying to stop him from crying.

"Hey, kid" Tsuna softly said as he pat the said kid's afro hair in a comforting way. "Why are you crying?"

"Dame *sniff* -Tsuna won't *sniff* let me play! WAAAAAH!" And the kid wailed again.

Tsuna flinched at the nickname and slightly frowned in confusion. He does not know this kid but the kid knew him. And there is a foreboding feeling lingering in his gut, his intuition is going haywire too. What's going on?

Deciding to think about it later, Tsuna placed his suitcase down, scooped the kid up from the ground and tried comforting him.

"Shh.. Now, Now" Tsuna soothed. "Tsuna-san didn't mean it to make you cry."

The kid stopped wailing and stared at the older male. Tsuna smiled and asked the kid where he lived, so he could take him back to his family.

Surprising enough, the kid lives in his house. And worse, there is something with it. His intuition is rampaging, giving him a massive headache.

He entered the house and was surprised at the fighting crowd. Soon, his surprise turned to anger.

9 kids, 7 teenagers and 8 adults are battling against 7 mummified humans in black cloaks.

Tsuna threw his suitcase towards a mummified man advancing for an infant kid with a fedora from behind.

Everybody stopped fighting and turned at his direction. Tsuna took this chance to ask them.

"Who do you think you are, destroying my house?" His tone was rather calm than angered, giving off a scary vibe in it.


It was a peaceful day. Well, as peaceful as it could get.

Everyone was in the Sawada Residence: I-pin, Fuuta, Dino, Romario, Shamal, Decimo Guardians aside from Mukuro, Arcobaleno with the exception of the sky Arcobaleno, and the Varia.

After the Decimo and everyone returned from the future, everyone involved in the war and received their fair share of memories, Vongola Nono decided to send the Varia over to Japan for a little bonding moment with the Decimo family.

He was so thrilled and happy at the somewhat friendly bond between the two skies' in the future he saw that he sent the whole Varia over.

As always, everyone was arguing, fighting, laughing, shouting and the casual throwing of wine glasses with the courtesy of Xanxus. Everything was normal.

Everything would have been, if only an unwanted and uninvited guests didn't arrived. Vindice.

The temperature dropped, mists spread out and four Vindice guards appeared out of their portal.

On cue, everyone was on guard and the kids were shoved far back for safety.

Reborn stepped in front of the Decimo Guardians, with a gun in hand he warned. "None of you will attack them, unless they attacked you first."

Hibari was about to protest but a glare from the infant hitman shut him up.

Returning his attention to the new visitors, Reborn asked flatly. "What business do you have with us?"

A guard covered in bandages with black cloak stepped forward. In a rasp voice he answered. "We were sent here to take the Arcobaleno Pacifiers"

A stunned silence...

Then Colonello stepped forward and asked in confusion but still held a blank face. "Why? It is our duty to protect the pacifiers, kora!"

"You have no rights to take them away" Lal seethed.

"Resistance would be futile. Hand them over." The same Vindice guard rasply ordered.

"No" Reborn declined.

"Then you give us no choice " Then on cue, house became a battlefield. Vindice attacked the Arcobalenos.

Shamal, Dino, Romario and the Varia joined in as three more Vindice guards appeared from the portal before it snapped closed.

Xanxus was getting frustrated. With each fire of his Wrath Flames, the vindice guard would absorb it with their Night Flames like it was nothing. And this not only frustrates him, but also fury him.

The same goes to everyone else. No flames could defeat the Vindice. And when it comes to a non-flame attacks, the Vindice would counter it with their chains. They are at a disadvantage.

Reborn was so deep in thought on how to counter their enemy that he did not sensed one creeping from behind him not until he heard Hayato's frantic warning.

"Reborn-san, behind you!"

Reborn's heart almost stopped at that moment. When he spun around, the enemy creeping behind him was only an arms reach. It didn't help that the enemy's hand was ablaze in Night flames.

On instinct, the Vindice guard jumped backward just as a black blur ran pass between them.

With a loud THUD, everyone stilled. Then simultaneously, they turned to the front door where a rather familiar brunet stood, carrying Lambo on one arm.

"Who do you think you are, destroying my house?" The brunet's tone was rather calm than angered, giving off a scary vibe in it.

Everyone was surprised that it wasn't their regular 14 year old brunet. He looked 10 years older. From the future perhaps?

Reborn analyzed the brunet. Spiky brow hair, slightly narrowed brown eyes, a few ear piercings, decent suit and a blue tie. All in all, it was no doubt Sawada Tsunayoshi.

But their is something in the brunet that even Reborn couldn't put a finger in it.

"J-Jyuudaime?" Hayato called out.

"Vongola Decimo" The Vindice who was the only one who hadn't fought, rasped.

But Tsuna made no move to acknowledge them. He only narrowed his eyes in confusion. Vongola Decimo?

With confident strides, Tsuna went to Kyoya and hand him the child in his arms before walking in the center of the room, coming face to face with what looked like the group leader.

"I'll ask again, 'Who are you and why are you destroying my house?' " Tsuna repeated.

Everyone is confused. Why doesn't Tsuna know the Vindice?

Even though still confused, the said Vindice guard introduced himself. "I am Jager, Strongest Vindice Guard. We were sent here by Bermuda-sama to collect the Arcobaleno Pacifiers."

Tsuna frowned as he tap his right index finger on his chin in a thinking manner.

"Arcobaleno? Pacifier? Vindice?" He repeated.

Everyone came more confused. If it is really TYL Tsuna like they thought he is, he would surely know. After all, he encountered them all before. Kokuyo incident, the future, and Arcobaleno Trials. Heck! even without those, just simply being Reborn's student, you would know all of them!

"Ah!" Tsuna's face brightened up as he remembered something, taking them all by surprise.

The brunet spun around and glanced at every infant with pacifiers before his attention went back to the Vindice in front of him.

He spoke as if repeating something someone told him once.

"They are not something to be surrendered to anyone. The pacifiers solely belongs to the Arcobaleno." Tsuna paused for a second to glance at every Vindice guard. "The current Arcobaleno"

The said Arcobaleno frowned at that last sentence. Why does he need to differentiate?

"You may be Vongola Decimo" Jager rasped. "But we will not back down. We will not let any one stand in our way. You cannot defeat us and we will take the Pacifiers back."

Tsuna sighed. And stated something that took everyone aback.

"You addressed me 'Decimo' twice. Are you really referring to me, or him? I know I look like my twin. But Kami-sama! We have differences too!" Exasperation lacing his voice. "If you really want to fight this with Giotto-nii and not me, then why don't you fly to Italy now and fight him!"

Silence...

That was too shocking for them, even the Vindice. This Sawada Tsunayoshi is not from the future and definitely not from this world.

One guard behind Jager pulled his chains and slammed it towards the brunet. It was too late when Tsuna reacted to defend. The chains slashed across his chest, sending him flying across the room and slamming onto the wall.

But another shock filled them as a chain necklace appeared from under the rigged shirt. But no, it wasn't the chain that shocked them, but the pendant.

As Tsuna stood up from the rubble, the necklace was now in full view. An orange pacifier wrapped in chains. Mammon chains.

Due to the damage, the chains loosened and detached itself from the pacifier. As soon as it was gone, all Arcobaleno Pacifier glowed; indicating a new Arcobaleno was nearby.

Tsuna ignored everyone's stunned looks and proceeded to address the Vindice Guards.

"You, people under the Arcobaleno with a clear pacifier, shall retreat." Tsuna stated seriously. "Bermuda is still an Arcobaleno and certainly under my jurisdiction. Attack me - his boss - once again, and I'll make sure that those black flames wouldn't be able to save you from deaths again."

As if a switch was turned on, all Arcobaleno present leapt in front of the brunet protectively.

The Vindice stood still for a moment before Jager opened a portal and signalled his companions to retreat.

"This isn't over yet, Sawada Tsunayoshi" Jager rasped before stepping in the portal.

After a good minute of silence, a THUD resounded. Looking to the source, they saw Tsuna kneeling on the floor in pain.

Immediately, Ryohei ran toward the brunet to check his wound and heal it up.

Tsuna ignored what Ryohei was doing and took his time to look around.

His house is a mess. Rubbles scattered everywhere. And he would bet that another damage and it will collapse right on top of them.

"This sucks. My house is in a mess!" Tsuna whined."And I actually left it spotless before I left."
