II The ground shook in a violent tremor and the ground began to crack. Tendrils of darkness began to rise from the ground around Illiana and Aria. The moon and stars were now obscured from sight leaving the only sources of light on the streets the lamps on every corner and the lighting coming out of the windows of houses in the area. The cracks in the ground began to spread outwards as more black smoke began to rise. Soon the cracks had begun to spread through every part of Eventide. "I came back as soon as I could." Choma's voice came from behind Take and Mika. "As soon as I felt the darkness. We need to regroup and stand to defend this world from becoming just another empty spot in the night sky." Choma's keyblade was already out as he knew the Heartless would be coming soon. "Mika, Takehiko, keep your keyblades out. Expect a battle soon. We are not going to abandon this world–these people to fall to the dark." "Follow my lead, the alleyway will have to wait. We need to get to the source of this darkness." Choma charged ahead, following where his senses led him sidestepping whenever he came across a new fissure in the ground with black tendrils spewing out. He had seen a world fall before but even that case had not been as extreme as this. He wondered if anything could be done to stop it. Whereas it took hours the first time he had seen it happen this time it looked so much worse. Choma made it to the park where, directly overhead, black clouds circled about. The only way to get everyone's attention and get them here would be if he sent out a beacon. So, raising his keyblade to point to the sky... Choma sent out a ray of light from his keyblade that shot straight to the sky signalling for all the other keyblade wielders to get to his location at the park.
