F*ck Off Friday - FlashFic Sonnet

I love silly plot generators. Making sense out of crazy plots really is fun for me. The crazier, the better. I just can't help myself. 

MIX UP MASH UP PLOT:  Entropy hunters and ritual magic in far Future Tokyo. Some things you might run into: a relationship ending, an unexpected ally, a malfunction, a fall from grace and forgiveness. Don't forget about the hollow tree, crown prince, greaves and letter

BONUS CHALLENGE: in a sonnet, just because

Encased in greaves, hidden from sight, he waits
His heartbeat slows as his quarry draws near.
Magic tingles fingers and sets the bait;
His prey senses danger, but shows no fear.

Staying his steed, the Prince surveys the site.
A man. Injured, ailing, fading away.
Gasping, yet refusing to give up the fight.
He reaches, grabs, though he suspects foul play.

Fires flare from the pits of Tokyo Old;
The Prince recognizes the Hunter's brand.
Lovers from friends, but the passion grew cold.
Energy drains through the joining of hands.

Betrayed, the Prince smiles, the pain sears his heart
Forgives, pardons, and falls when pulled apart.

Hmmm. Not so much, huh? 

Maybe I should stick to limericks and haikus. Who would have thought it would be so hard to fit "Tokyo" in iambic pentameter?
