    Instead of going through the trouble of searching the living room, especially at his size, Kel simply found himself a vantage point and used it to scan the area. Not one single sign of Luna being there, not even the cat was there. It was all quiet, which was fine for him. He probably spent a good five minutes there before deciding to head back to Cinderella's room. With any luck one of the others might've found something. When he got back he saw that Etrius had already found her. "Well, that takes care of that."

    The remaining Heartless were somewhat difficult to take out with nothing to use but kicks and anti-gravity bunny hops. Then again, gliding was new to him; everything about Keyblades was new to him. Base had had to use the glider only once before, and that particular occurrence was for escape purposes exclusively. He had never had to go on the offense while on the weapon, so doing so now threw him completely for a loop. This was the case especially where the aeroplanes gave him trouble by going on literal loops in their revolutions around the crow as they all flew. Eventually though, the attack on Jim was quelled and so Base checked the surrounding area. Seeing a nearby patch of Air Solider mixed with two Aeroplane escorts, he flew down into the thick of it.

    Krowley soon followed Base in his pursuit of the small horde off lying heartless. They had dwindled in numbers and were now relying on a combined effort. Something the keybladers should learn from when in a teamed battle. Leading away from his routine area, he flew off in order to prevent any passage from the receding creatures. Once he had a peripheral vision, the heartless became like bowling pins to him on his glider. With a cut off escape, he targeted straight ahead. With Base narrowing in overhead, Krowley could knock them out of alignment, giving Base a more affective strike.

    Putting that plan into motion, he charged through the air soldiers, which bounced off the aeroplanes, leaving them all momentarily dazed. Flyiing back up to his guarding post of Dumbo, he yelled back to the descending Mystic. "All yours!" For once, he had been working with the team, instead of separate. It felt good to be able to rely on others and have others rely on you. And with that mindset, he flew back up in time to knock away an air soldier who had gotten a little to close to timothy. As he flew into the air, he planned to finish off the soldier with a quick skid to the noggin with his glider. Which, when it came to heartless, proved to be very effective.

    Their numbers were quickly dwindling with their plan of measure, having all three of them guard a certain area of the y-axis battlefield.

    Krowley gained 12 EXP!

    Krowley leveled up!
    - AP increased!
    - Learned Dodge Roll!

    "Okie okie! all friends togetha again!" Jaq exclaimed. "Lessa go see Cinderelly off!"

    ~MISSION START~ IV. To the Ball (Part 1)

    Jaq quickly bounced around the wooden planks while describing their next objective. "Stepmother says tha if Cinderelly finish all da chores AND have her dress done, she can go. Since we finish dress, she can go!" He slid down a column before continuing. "Now she get to go to da ball and isa tradition to see girls before they go!"
    He had already reached the bottom before warning them of dangers they already encountered. "Remember! Rucafee still out there! Don't get caught by cat cat! Or else he make a mess and cinderelly will have to stay to clean it up! Stepmother and stepsisters'll do anything to stop Cinderelly from being happy." He let out a melancholic sigh. "Why would family be so mean?"

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Well, that escalated more quickly than anticipated, now we just have to find our peg-legged-" Basil's words stopped once he found that Fidget had already fled.
    At this time, the bar fight had become even more violent. He called over to Eon before he slyly moved his way past the intoxicated ruffians. "Come on, there's not a moment to lose!" With his quick eye to detail, Basil sees a trapdoor behind the bar and has the party move toward it, unnoticed. The fight continues as Dawson climbs down the passageway, followed soon by everyone else, and lastly, with Basil right behind them. Basil slowly shut the door, just as a chair flew over to hit it.

    Down below, Basil sees Fidget up ahead, climbing into a drain pipe. Basil motions for the party to quietly follow him as they quietly crept behind. Fidget was nonchalantly singing a show tune to himself. Acting as if it was just another typical day of him returning to his boss. Following quietly, they looked into the pipe int time to see Fidget disappear into the darkness. Quietly walking their way through the sewer pipe, it was near impossible to make sight of anything. As a bat, Fidget was using his sonar, but the rest of them were relying solely on touch. which, for a sewer, was quite disgusting.

    With enough struggling and direction, they finally reached the drain gate by Ratigan's hideout. Lifting the grate, he opens it up, allowing the rest of the group to exit.
    "Ah-ha! We found it! Ratigan's secret lair!... And it's filthier than I imagined." Over near the entrance to his evil abode, they spot the bottle in which appeared to have Olivia kept. Carefully sneaking over to the bottle, Basil jumps on the neck of the bottle and begins to pull at the cork.
    "Confound it! It's stuck." He continues to persist with Dawson tapping a the glass of the bottle to get Olivia's attention. "Olivia"
    Fidget, as it turns out, was in the bottle, dressed in Olivia's clothing. He turns to them, with a sinister smile as he makes a kissy face.
    "Surprise!!" a loud voice boomed. Basil drops to the ground, startled, as a large banner that reads "Welcome Basil" unfurls from the ceiling. Balloons are released and confetti flies as heartless appear erratically, surrounding the heroes. Ratigan stands at the doorway, applauding.
    "Bravo! Bravo! A marvelous performance..."

    Kel nodded and followed behind Jaq. "Good, now she get's to have her wish." Everyone deserved to have their wish granted. Well, at least the ones who truly deserved it. Still as Jaq talked about Cinderella's step sisters, he merely listened before speaking. "Not all families get along as well, though she seems to be taking it well." None of those was spoken from any personal experiences, it was just one of those truths that it learned. Still they were going to see this through, no matter what. " So where's Cinderella at?"

    Steel didn't move a muscle when Etrius and Kel ran off. He was too busy scanning the area Etrius had designated. "The kid was a little rushed to talk like that."
    Steel frowned. "Oh shut up, we're not going into your complexes."
    "What are you talking about? I was just sayin'." The Voice responded. "Whatever." Luna wasn't there, not anywhere around the area Etrius had requested he search. "What's the big deal anyway?" Steel sighed. "I didn't ask for Leo to get you in order to explain all the little things you don't understand." Steel then heard voices down the hall. "Guess they found her." Later with Jaq: Alright, to Cinderella. At Jaq's comment about Cinderella's family Steel replied with: "Because they aren't really her family. The stepmother married for money and decided to kick the guy's daughter around, just because she could. It makes me wanna puke my guts out how pathetic and smelly that woman is." To which a certain voice replied: "Do you ever stop thinking about S.E.E.D.s?"

    Etrius's eyes narrowed under his hood at the talk of Cinderella's family. After scoping the area for pearls, he had gotten a good look at them. They were nowhere as nice as the very woman who helped them, and that we helped her fufill her dream. They were the source of jealousy.
    His head started to hurt suddenly, and one image burst into his head: It was Cinderella, but she was crying, and the dress Jaq and the other's made for her was ripped nearly to shreds. For a split second, Etrius felt her aura. It was.....
    Etrius bent over in pain. He shook his head and asked, "I know this might sound odd, but do you think we should let her go?" His yellow eyes were now filled with worry, "I have a bad feeling that her family might do something to her. And I'm saying this for her well being."

    On the world Pachyderm Parade, just a little ways away from where the group, a white haired man in his early 20s, clad in a red coat, sat on a gold and silver motorcycle with two objects resembling wings protruding from either side on the front. his keyblade in glider form. He'd been watching the fight for about 20 seconds, dumbfounded as to how an elephant got that high. After a bit, he decided it was unimportant. Heartless needed killing. He put up his hood so his eyes were more or less hidden from view by the shadow while still allowing him to see. All that could be seen through his hood was part of his hair on the sides and his self-assured smile.

    He revved the handlebars and was propelled forward, with a small jet of fire coming from the tailpipe. It didn't take him long to get there. He did so right about as the heartless were dazed by Krowley. He took to the air and channeled a fire spell through his keyblade. Even though it was in glider form, it was still his keyblade. The flaming ball shot directly towards an air soldier which Base was supposed to take out, and stole his kill. A few seconds later, the keyblader himself got to the heartless, driving past them and attacking with the wings. After he got through the group of heartless, He spun his glider around and raised his hand "And the crowd goes wild! yeah woo! Beuce we love you!" He said, imitating the cheer of a crowd for himself.

    Raisor looked toward to "person" standing in front of them applauding. He looked full of himself, and Raisor could see that he certainly felt proud of what was going on. Raisor knew there was a trap along the way, and yet they still ended up walking right into it. While he was ready to go full force against the enemy, they needed to know where Olivia and her father were; if they didn't know that, they wouldn't learn anything taking out Raitgan. Which brought a question to Raisor's head, which he just had to ask,
    "Wait.....you're a rat aren't you? Why are you hanging out with all of these mice? Shouldn't you be with your own species?"

    Base reared on his Glider to avoid colliding with the usurper who took out his target. He watched as the stranger leapt in with, literally, fiery intensity and all but decimate the stunned Heartless to nothing. Base himself was stunned, as the interruption had come as a complete surprise, following the somewhat surprising act of Krowley's aid. Having little time to react however, as the remaining Heartless began to regain their animalistic senses, Base swooped in and wiped them out with one last "THUNDER!" that boiled the Air Soldier into an exploding ethereal mess and shocked the Aeroplane into losing control and crashing into the ground. As he did so, he heard the white-haired stranger speak from above his position, and, oddly enough, Base could almost swear he heard his own name spoken.

    [​IMG]
    Base pulled on the bars and the scooter came to a halt, landing on the ground and hopping off. In fact, that was not all that occurred as a result; in a strange twist, what had once been a scooter-looking flyer become a flying motorcycle sans wheels, which were replaced by flat discs that, landed, it stood firmly on the ground. As far as motorcycles went, it was small; a sporty little thing that looked very much like it had been designed from his gold and silver Kingdom Key. Following its sudden transformation, the weapon transformed once more before returning to its base Keyblade model, once again being taken in hand by Base before it disappeared in a voluntarily prompted flash of light.

    Base had returned to the ground to try and get a better view of the above area that had suddenly been disrupted, only to find three gliding Keybladers, a crow, and an Elephant high in the rafters; Timothy wasn't very much visible at such a difference of altitudes and obstruction. Relieved to find the Heartless dealt with, Base tried to produce a Cure spell to ease his nerve and remove any traces of what little fatigue he'd gotten since last using it, but found no charge to go on. 'Better to relax for a little while and recharge manually' He thought as he surveyed the "sky" of the circus tent above. He saw the stranger clearly for the first time. He was young, but perhaps a little bit older than Base himself, and had White hair and even at the difference in distance, Base could still make out the young man was visibly muscular. Bewildered by the new presence, he thought back a little while and discovered that he himself had somewhat wondered in unsuspectingly to a battle that had already been in process with Shapur and Krowley fighting; this time it was just with one more added precursor: him.

    Although, this would probably mean one more person to socialize with, and he barely knew either Krowley or Shapur so far. Still, maybe this person was a stranger to them to, so Base would at least have some equal ground there. This and more he contemplated as he stood there on the low ground.

    Beuce leveled up!

    With all heartless eliminated, Krowley descended back onto the highwire platform where timothy was still comforting Dumbo. The poor elephant slowly opened his ears, confusing to why the little mouse was shutting them so tight before. Nevertheless, his charm managed to put a smile on the infant's face.Jim Crow even made his way to see if the little one was unharmed. "Well hush my beak! Now I know that ain't no act! Borthers nearly took our heads off!" The feathered friend re-alligned his hat before continuing. "They come 'round again, and they'll know why we crows are famous for peckin' out eyes!"
    All was well for now.

    Next matter of business was the new arrival into this foreign world. The stranger had silver hair was cocky, but with the previous wielders' mood, it was nice to see an upbeat change for once. "So where'd you come from?" Krowley asked the newcomer.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------

    Ratigan twitched his left eye slightly at Raisor's mention of the word "rat," but quickly dismissed it, keeping his class act intact. Letting loose a chuckle, he pulled out a a small bell. With a little ring, heartless arose from the depths of the keyblader's nose and contained them before a keyblade could be summoned. Heartless soldiers tied up Dawson and Basil to a mousetrap, while the party was confined under a large chandelier cage.


    "Oh I love it! I love it!" Ratigan laughed. Several of Ratigan's Large Body Heartless were now setting a trap that would finish them off. Ratigan even took the time to clap at their job well done. "Marvelous creatures.. Much more obedient and efficient then any hired help." He turned to his soon to be extinct rival with great pleasure. "You don't know what a delightful dilemma it was trying to decide on the most appropiate method for your demise."
    Basil, feeling defeated, looked catatonic, and simply staring off into space.
    "Oh, I had so many ingenious ideas I didn't know which to choose. So, I decided to use them all!"

    Ratigan gives a grand gesture to reveal a gun, a crossbow, an axe, and an anvil, all of which are aimed directly at Basil and Dawson.
    "Marvelous, isn't it? Oh ho... But here, let me show you how it works. Picture this..." Raitigan points to fidget who showcases a record player. "First, a tune I've recorded especially for you. As the song plays the cord tightens and when the song ends-" Ratigan gestured up higher now to show the cord is moving upward, tied to a cork which is supporting a wine glass with a metal ball inside. "-the metal ball is released, rolling along its merry way until.... Snap! Boom! Twang! Thunk! Splat!
    Dawson winces as Ratigan removes his hat in a form of salute. " And so ends the short, undistinguished career of Basil of Baker Street!" And for you esteemed colleagues-" Ratigan was now pointing to the party. "I have a very hungry kitty that just loves having her food prepared for her..."

    "You're despicable" Dawson grunted.
    "Hmmhmm, yes, "he chuckles as Fidget, now dressed in a British guard uniform, runs over to him."Everything's ready, Fidget?"
    "All set, boss!" Ratigan peeks inside a large white box with a pink ribbon and chuckled wickedly. "Oh, this is wicked! So delightfully wicked!" Ratigan then walks over to Flaversham, who is bound by ropes, standing by Olivia's bottle, where it's shown that she's safe and sound, for now.
    "Mr. Flaversham, let me congratulate you on a superb piece of craftsmanship. See what you can do with the proper motivation?" While all this was going on, Basil did nothing to resist and was already accepting defeat.


    "It was my fond hope to stay and witness your finale scene but you were fifteen minutes late and I do have an important engagement at Buckingham Palace. Now, you will remember to smile for the camera, won't you?" A camera had indeed set up, ready to shoot. Walking past the caged wielders, he started the record, looked past them and grinned. "You world travellers simply must choose your friends more carefully..."
    Fidget now landed operating a dirigible, and flies by Ratigan. The mysterious package is attached by a rope. A ladder is lowered, and Ratigan climbs on, waving. "Adieu, auf wiedersehen, arrivederci, farewell!"
    Ratigan and Fidget flew away with his heartless, and left the party caged and detective, tied.

    Steel looked at Etrius and saw the worry on his face. He shrugged. "It won't matter what they try, they won't get away with it. Just you wait, Cinderella's dream will come true." Steel stared into space as they made their way through the mouse hole network. He wondered about Aura, and if her dream would ever come true. He shook his head. "Her dream can't become reality if mine does, but maybe when it's all over she can have a new dream." Steel looked back towards Etrius. "Trust me, everything will work out for the best."

    "Yes but-" Etrius started, but he cut himself off. His shoulders slackened and he lowered his head. "This woman is kind. But naive.." Etrius restarted his voice quiet but firm, "She doesn't realize that corruption will always find a soft spot. Even you," He pointed at Steel, "You look like you can hold your emotions well, but corruption has a habit of taking over even the strongest of people." He turned around as he went on, "The reason why I asked is because I've had a vision. It happens to me on certain occasions. This vision showed me one thing...."
    Etrius head suddenly snapped and Etrius stiffened, then lowered his head. When he raised it, two red eyes took the place of the yellow ones.
    "Cinderella's night was ruined!" Etrius's voice was not his own, but it sounded older, more animal-like, "And those two snobby hags lifted their heads and laughed! And the spiteful old bonebag of the mother just stood and watched, with a f*cking sneer across her face!" Etrius's neck snapped again to the other side, and his eyes and voice returned to normal. He shook his head.
    "I just think that we watch her carefully. Anything can go wrong, and nothing ever goes somebody's way when it comes to parties or balls."

    Karina, not waiting for Yana to attack jumped up grabbing the tail of a bird and throwing it into one of the dog heartless, now with them both down she could take them out. Karina then turned To a drill heartless attacking it as well. She wished that Kross would have remained and helped them instead of going with Fang but there was nothing Karina could do about it. She had to stay focused on the task at hand. She couldn't let the heartless near the net, with three defenseless creatures inside it was up to her to keep them safe and alive.

    Shapur landed back on the high wire next to Dumbo. He looked over at the newcomer. Great, stuck with another one. Shapur turned to Krowley, who addressed the new arrival. He then turned back to the newcomer. "Yes, I am quite interested in that myself." Shapur leaned on Dumbo and stared at this new ally. Shapur hated change, and everything seemed to be changing a lot lately.

    Kross took his keyblade up and gripped it at his side. Seemed they were a little bit further away from Mcleach but he would not underestimate the man. It wasn't that he didn't want to remain with his allies, having a bad sense of timing was all it took for him to get separated from his group." Fang! If you can bring me back around the corner, I can go and help my friends, we can't let Mcleach or the Heartless near the boy or the eggs, okay?"

    It seemed like everyone else was landing on the Highwire, and Base couldn't help but feel a little left out and snubbed. Begrudgingly, he again took to his glider. The glider ride, this time, was very much different than it had been before; the motorcycle felt more empowering and flew the air effortlessly. He spiraled straight up to the Highwire ledge where Dumbo was set, having to rising in altitude gradually.

    Upon reaching the ledge he kept his glider active, since an elephant sitting on little more than a plank of wood made him slightly unnerved. Base looked to the side, at the glider, and found the metallic stands had retracted up into the body. He noted that as he looked to the others with silent curiosity.

    Up on the wire with all the others, he turned to Krowley who questioned where he came from. "Oh, ya know, over there" Beuce said pointing casually in the direction he'd come from. "But anyway, yeah. Name's Beucefilous D. Alexander. Kind of a mouthful, so you can just call me whatever. Beuce, Beucey, Fil, Steve, I'm not picky. Anything but Bruce. I hate it when people call me that." Beuce said, introducing himself to the group. He continued grinning the whole time. "Backstory is long and boring, so I'm not gonna waste your time with it. But it looks like you guys got yourselves some fancy weaponry there. I know a thing or two about those."

    Beuce was eyeing their keyblades. He'd been looking for someone else who had one for a good month now, as he then stated. "Without going through the whole story, either of you know a girl named Rain? More or less my age? Has a keyblade?" He asked the group. Even if they didn't they probably knew other keyblade wielders, and the weapon was his only lead. Without that he'd be completely lost. So no matter the answer, he'd tag along.

    Luna looked out the window and saw it was becoming night. She started to look around Cinderella's room. I need to find something that has a strong scent of Cinderella's aura. I'm worried about her. If her stepsisters keep her working, she might not be able to go to the ball. Luna climbed on top of her dresser and found a small piece of her ribbon. "Bingo!" She grabbed the ribbon and safely came down making sure to reopen the wound in her shoulder.

    Aden cursed. If only he'd acted sooner...!

    Well, not much to do about that now; it's not like time travel was possi...never mind.

    "Hold on, Basil," Aden gritted out. "We're getting out of here!" That said, he summoned his Keyblade and pointed it at the cage bars in front of him.

    "BLIZZARD!"

    The bars froze instantly. Satisfied, Aden hauled back and swung his Keyblade into the bars full force. They shattered, and Aden jumped out, rushing to the complex death trap machinery. He eyed the cord and asked Basil, "The cord gets tight, we're done. What happens if I cut it?"

    Krowley shook his head in response. Only girls with keyblades that he had seen in his travel to the past were Luna, Karina, Anora, and Yana. And they were all scattered to different worlds. He did like the name Rain though. It wasn't a typical name and gave off a nice glow.
    "We all have stories, but like you, I think it would be best kept for later." Or not at all. Simple things he still didn't want to reveal to people kept distancing him from them. It was a harsh choice, but he felt it best in the long run.
    "Right now we're kind of dealing with this." Krowley pointed to Dumbo the elephant who had brightened up since earlier. Timothy was now pondering to himself how they got up there during the pink elephants fiasco. Jim Crow was keeping Dumbo occupied by doing some slick aerial maneuvers.

    "I wonder how we ever got up here, anyway." The mouse began to pace back and forth in a small vertical line. distinct mumbling on his brain process could be heard.
    "Elephant's can't climb trees can they? Nah, nah, that's ridiculous... Jump up? Mm-mm, too high..."
    As Jim did his little tricks, he budded into his thought process and suggested, "Hey there son, maybe you all flew up?!"
    "Maybe we flew up..." Timothy told himself. He was very deep in his own thoughts, not even realizing it was the bird who stated the possibility.
    "That's it! Dumbo! You flew! Boy, am I stupid. Why didn't I think of this before" Not wishing to bring physics into the mix, Krowley decided to do as he saw and the past, and for the time being; just go with it. After fighting bubbled creatures, flying elephants didn't seem so far fetch. He didn't even wish to think about how the group would get the elephant down. Him flying, would definitely be a time saver, allowing less strain to get the mammal off the endangering height.

    "Your ears. Just look at 'em, Dumbo. Why, they're perfect wings. The very things that held ya down are gonna carry ya up and up and up! I can see it all now. Dumbo, the Ninth Wonder of the Universe! The world's only flyin' elephant!"

    Jim Crow broke into laughter. "What's so funny about that?" The mouse asked, offended on Dumbo's behalf. Wiping a tear from his eye, he explained.
