The Final Escape

By WinterSpark

Mystery / Horror

Blurb

Just like before, she began disappearing, even as she held his hands. Italy cried out, not wanting her to leave. "Don't leave me, please!" She shook her head, unwillingly feeling the tears down her cheeks. "I'm so sorry, but you know how it is. I promise, I promise you, I will do my best to free you and your friends, so that you can finally feel the freedom you been wishing for." "Until then," She held out her pinkie. "Shall we make a vow?" He nodded, wrapping his pinkie around her ghostly finger. Italy spoke, silently weeping. "I promise I will find a way out, no matter what the cost." "And I promise to be there with you, until you find the ending you desire." "Together forever?" "Together, until the end of eternity."

Pröłöğūë: Ťhë Ğhö§ť Pŕīñç맧

A woman dressed in a blue and white kimono stood a top of a hill, where her home, an enchanting looking temple lies. Her wavy pink hair beneath her mob cap seemed to move with the wind, touching her cheeks every once in a while. Using her fan that had an intricate design, she slowly fanned herself.

“Hmm..” Yuyuko Saigyouji stared down upon rows and rows of cherry blossom trees, looking deeply in thought. Looking down at the trees her gardener cared for usually calmed her soul, spiritually speaking. But right now, even looking at her domain could not calm the raging thoughts in her mind. With a sigh, the Ghost Princess of Hakugyokurou closed her fan as well as her eyes.

“Yuyuko-sama?” Yuyuko opened her eyes and glanced at her garderner. Youmu Konpaku may seemed as stoic as ever but her phantom half shifted restlessly, as if feeling agitated.

“Ah, Youmu-chan.” She turned back to the trees below, a strange frown gracing her lips. “What brings you here? Shouldn’t you be fetching Yukari?”

“I was about to leave, when I see how... Silent you are.” Youmu bowed her head. “I’m sorry for the intrusion, Yuyuko-sama. I couldn’t help but ask if you are alright.”

“Alright..” She repeated, giving the gardener a gentle smile. “I’m fine. It’s not me that I’m worried about.”

Used to the vague answer, the silver haired woman nodded, though the phantom half dipped it’s head. “I see.”

“I’m sorry I didn’t give you a clearer answer, Youmu-chan. It’s just... complicated.” Yuyuko shook her head. “Thank you for asking. I always knew you cared, despite how emotionless you are.”

“Yuyuko-sama!′

The ghost princess giggled, but even that died quickly. She went back to staring at the cherry blossom trees as Youmu bowed. “I shall take my leave, Yuyuko-sama.”

A nod was given as a response. “Please be fast, Youmu. Even though this has nothing to do with Gensokyo matters, it concerns a supernatural power.”

And just as the gardener was about to leave, she heard her mistress whispered.

“Apparently time in Gensokyo flows differently than the Outside World.”

Chapter End~


A rather short prologue, don’t you think?

Anyway, this will be a crossover between Hetalia and Touhou, as you can see. But I will not be using the normal, canon crossover, no. This will be a HetaOni crossover. Bless that game, no matter how many tears I shed due to it.

This came to me in a rather unexpected way. As I was listening to Insanity (Italy and Germany version) I began to think of how to create a crossover that isn’t.. the same, ya know? Then I began imagining how Italy and Yuyuko would interact if they meet and it just expands from there.

Updates will be irregular. Just an early warning. With all the things happening in real life, I’m busy as it is.

Another thing, chapters will be longer, I promise.

Ali Albazaz: I started reading "Caged" few hours ago and I'm on chapter 7 now. Caged is definitely one of the most addictive stories I've ever read. Thank you so much for writing this novel.

Spring: I normally don't read fiction novels, but I absolutely enjoyed reading Silent Shadows! The style is quite different from the previous fiction novels I've attempted to read. Great job!

ritafullerton: This book had me hooked at the beginning. I loved the premise of the book. The grammar was a bit off. But the book was overall good. I am not sure if this is the authors first book but I look forward to seeing more from this author.

Kaitlyn Colbey: There's more than one book????? Is this the last one or what? Fuuuuuuuuuuuucccccccccccc************The relationship between Elle and Phoenix once they're together describes my relationship with my person perfectly. I appreciate this novel

harry142018: This story was gripping and very professionally written. With lots of twists and slight of hand tricks, the author deceives the reader until finally showing their cards at the end. With several subplots all intertwining to create the main plot, this really is an interesting and engaging read.

ChristianHooks: D'graive is the conduit the whoooole time. Can you believe that? DAMN NATURE YOU SCARY! WHAT IN TARNATION

Arabella: The catchy blurb caught my attention. The story is creepy but I would not qualify it as a horror story. The characters are likeable and I’m impatiently waiting for new stories from Obsidian Fae.

TheGhostWritter: I enjoyed your book, great plot, random twists and great characters, Loved it, One suggestion is to keep paragraphs short, at one point I might have begun skipping paragraphs because they became a little to long, bit other wise great book, brilliant plot, and bloody amazing thriller.

lopezmariana97: I loved everything about this book. I read it in a weekend because it was so hard to put down. I real liked that it wasn't a typical demon story and that It didn't involve vampires. I pictured the cast for this book if it ever becomes a movie. 100% love

Shifa Gohar: this book is my first on inkitt and I love it thoroughly...but i guess this is not the end. The characters were amazing the plot too. At times it scared me more than a horror movie would. Love the plot something i had not read in a while.

Marimar Amieva: Although I found the vampire thing a bit too much, I couldn't stop reading it. The story had a bit of everything: mystery, romance, a huge plot twist and relatable characters. I congratulate the author for this story and hope to read more of whatever he writes.

tsolaidowu: I want a continuation dammit....I loved this book and the 1st one. I can't believe this is it. I'm not ready to say goodbye to Jeff and Lorie; and the gang. Great book and storyline. You're a genius Madelyn.

M. Drewery: I did think I would be reading just another Atlantis archaeological adventure story when I came across this book. However I think it's fresh and very different to other approaches to the same historical mystery. The first chapter drew me in brilliantly. I'm not great at spotting technical writing...

Katy Rayne: i really enjoyed this book. i have to say i didn't know what to expect, but with every chapter that came something crucial to keep you reading happened. I was disappointed with the ending if this is for another book i will defiantly carry on reading the next book.
