Haiphong, Vietnam, 1976

No Caption Provided

Minamoto no Burusuto felt that weird buzz on the back of his neck as he sat at the bar. Standing in the doorway was man with sandy brown hair, weary eyes, a tan trench coat and white sneakers. He stood out amongst the locals.

“Highlander…” Burusuto muttered as he slowly got up from the bar and placed a hand on the tachi by his side.

“Samurai…” Connor parted his coat to reveal his katana.

“Drink?”

Connor paused. It felt like a trick. He walked closer and took the seat next to the ancient Japanese warrior. “Aye.”

Burusuto called out in Vietnamese to the bartender. “You needn’t worry, this is holy ground. We can’t fight here.”

Connor looked around as the bartender placed a beer bottle before him. “Really?”

“No!” Burusuto chuckled. “I particularly don’t wish to fight today. I will…but I don’t want to.”

Connor again was perplexed. “Is something the matter?”

“Today is my birthday,” Burusuto stated. “Well, I think it is. Around this time of year, I reflect upon my immortality, how it came about, the people I’ve killed along the way and when that happens, I declare it my birthday.”

Connor clinked his bottle to his rivals. “Happy birthday, Samurai.”

“Thank you, Highlander. So, do you wish my head?”

“No, not now. Today is actually an anniversary for myself,” Connor looked into his beer as thoughts of his first love Heather danced through his mind. “I must buy a candle…”

Burusuto raised his beer bottle. “Kanpai! Here’s to us, a couple of sad, eternal warriors.”

“Hardest opponent? Good question…” Burusuto drunkenly looked down the blade of Connor’s katana. “This is an exquisite weapon by the way.”

“It belonged to my mentor, Ramirez…” Connor paused as he realised he was now weaponless and a tad drunk.

“His name was Xhaferi…evil Slavic man who looked like cold death,” Burusuto spun the blade around before laying it back on the bar. “Piercing grey eyes. He was the hardest opponent as I couldn’t behead him.”

“What?”

“It was in Vienna, some ninety years ago. I crossed Xhaferi’s path by accident. He was stalking prostitutes and children. I hit him right in the neck with a blow that should’ve killed him.”

“Magic?”

Burusuto shook his head. “Science. The mad bastard had his spine coated in steel! Can’t decapitate him and take his power if his head is unable to come away from his neck. He fled into the night. I searched that city for a week before finding him again hunting women. The battle was long and bloody. Three more times he should’ve died but that metal neck saved him.”

“How did you defeat him?”

“I pushed him under a train!”

Connor looked at Burusuto and burst out laughing. The pair erupted in rapturous giggling and guffawing.

“You killed him with a train!” Connor laughed.

“And what of you Highlander, your hardest opponent?”

“The Kurgan…giant bastard of man from the Steppes of Russia.”

“I have seen him from afar…perhaps I’ll introduce him to my train!”

Again the pair erupted into laughter and this continued on for the remainder of the evening.

__

On the morning, the two dusty and aching Immortals shook hands and parted ways. They would never meet again.

Notes

Burusuto originally comes from my story located here

Original character for this is Xhaferi, though admittedly there is very little about him
