Instinctively, the devil hunter reached for Ebony & Ivory, but he found that they weren't in his holsters. He also noticed that Rebellion was nowhere to be seen.

There is no fixed point when it started; it's just always been there and it will never vanish. Because time is an eternal thing; it is part of this universe and is etched into the very earth.There are those who have been blessed with the power to manipulate time; to slow it down or stop it for a few seconds. But they do not have the power to control time, not truly.Legend speaks of an hourglass; the very essence of time its self, which can send someone back to any past point in their lives.
