    Twilight Town. If there were ever a place that Faust Baneheart would go to pick up on information, it was there, amongst the infinite sunset of the quaint little town. Many people put their faith in Radiant Garden when it came to the passing of information, simple logic, and effective to some extent. Unfortunately, that world in particular had grown into a massive urban center, as well a major seat of power amongst the worlds of Light. Its worth, in Faust’s opinion, had diminished significantly over the years, as it was more likely for one to stumble across petty pop culture news rather than any real news; of course, it didn’t help that the information was one sided as well, centered entirely on what was going on within the Realm of Light, while blatantly downplaying the other Realms, the result of its exclusive population, which was prominent across most of the worlds in the Light.​

    But there amidst the everlasting dusk of Twilight Town, Faust had found that information was far more potent, even if less frequently and more softly proclaimed. Whispers remained whispers wherever one happened to poke their ears about. But where Faust now tread, he could find out everything he needed to know. Presently, he was drifting idly about the world, inconspicuously nosing in on the various proceedings amongst the commoners of the town. Just as he suspected, news was thinly spread, but very much reliable when it came down to it. The emotion behind the words spoke very clearly, even if the words themselves were obscure: the people in this town sat in a state of tension, lurking well beneath their cheerful exteriors.​

    After a quick excursion through the town, Faust had finally settled upon a rooftop overlooking the Tram Commons on Market Street. This was the hub of the town’s life, second only to the Sandlot during the annual Struggle tournaments. There, the words of the small town traveled like a Gummi Ship on hyper-drive. Every talk was the same: there was something on the horizon, and when it arrived, it would be something big, something that shook the worlds to their cores, and perhaps more. These people, he thought, are very intuitive. The Knights in Radiant Garden have spoken of mobilizing their forces. But this place confirms that open conflict is likelihood. Of course, for Faust, conflict meant opportunity, as was the nature of business, which happened to have him as a soldier of fortune.​

    He had already performed a wealth of acts worthy of his status, including suppressing bandits in Agrabah and quelling a rather harsh uprising of spirits in Halloween Town. These tasks had been more recent, as part of his current contract with the Radiant Garden Light Knights. His contract bound him for a few more operations, one of which involved sleuthing around for evidence of the impending wars. Other than that task, however, he was uncertain of what his final contractual obligations would be. If anything he was hearing and seeing around town held any weight whatsoever, as he was sure it all did, he would be in work for a long while, even after his contract expired. So long as his name preceded him, he’d have more contracts coming his way.​

    "This place will become a hotbed for action soon enough," he said aloud to himself. He hopped down from the rooftop, which was a pretty short drop, landed comfortably in a squat, and proceeded to make his way up towards the clock tower, where he was sure to find out even more from travelers coming and going from Central Station.​

    R stood, but didn't turn to face his former pupil. Even without looking, he could tell that she was kneeling at his feet, silently asking for forgiveness and further instruction. "Moonflow. You've made quite a bit of mistakes lately. You spurned my teaching and departed, without first finishing your training. You were overconfident, and engaged in combat with a warrior of light alone, nearly getting yourself killed. However, one doesn't learn from their mistakes without first making them." as he finished speaking, he turned and faced her, placing a hand on her head.

    "If you wish to continue your training, I will be more than wiling to teach you." His scarf hid the bottom half of his face, and therefore his expression, but if most had to guess, they'd say he had a smile. He looked to the others at the clock tower, then walked to sapphire. "You're Moonflow's sister, aren't you?" he asked.

    Moonflow stood as she responded in a strict voice. "He wasn't going to kill me. He is too nice for that. I could see it in his eyes, he wasn't capable of killing his twin sister!" She followed R down to where her sister sat. She knew she probably shouldn't have said that but her short temper got the better of her as she spoke to her old teacher. This was no way of earning his respect or getting him to continue teaching her.

    Sapphire took the ice cream bar from the man but didn't look at him or care to talk to him. She responded to his question anyways even though her response was far from the truth. "N-no I haven't seen that girl before in my life." She stuttered. Just as she said that she could hear music playing in the back ground. She ran through the lyrics to that song in her mind and started to build a connection to them. They pretty much put all her feelings into words. All she wanted was peace in her family, no wars. She wanted them all to be together again. But Sapphire being the stubborn girl she was didn't want to show the people around her what she was feeling. She hid her emotions till she felt like she couldn't any longer. It was at that point she got up to start running towards the tunnels where she felt she would be alone. She only got a few steps before she ran into a man in front of her. Since she never bothered to look up she didn't see him arrive. Behind this man stood her sister who was smirking at her. Sapphire shrunk back down against the wall and slowly nodded in an answer to the man's question. She looked at both him and her sister but refused to make eye contact with either.

    Louvel stood up as soon as he was outside the effects of the purple sphere. "Thanks man." He said to the person who had helped him out of there. "Names Louvel. Say how did you learn magic like that. Most commoners don't know about magic or how to use it properly." He inquired. As he spoke he remembered his sisters. "I wish I could chat longer but there is something I got to deal with, care to walk and talk?" Louvel asked as he stared at the forest exit.
     
  4. "That's R, the supposed heartless of a world who's heart was consumed. He looks every bit like I was told he looked like. Even with my training, if this turns into a brawl, will I be even a match.for him?there seems to be others on the side of light, and some neutrals, and even some darkness born creatures here, but even if so, that gravity spell was a high level powerful one. And if this girl joins him, I will be in loads of trouble..." Zayde thought. "I don't what I will do, but I won't loose the fight if it starts!" He thought to himself. "Well, even if she is, why do you need to know?" Zayde said to R.

    "You'd be surprised what some will do when faced down with an enemy" he said in response to Moonflow's statement about her brother. Ignoring Zayde for the moment, he spoke in a softer tone to Sapphire. It was gentle, yet empty. Lacking in emotion, as was everything he said. "You've probably heard that there is a war going on between the light and the dark. I can tell you're confused, so I'll explain the situation to you. Kingdom Hearts, the heart of all that lives, has decided to grant it's power to either the light or the dark. Whichever it doesn't choose will likely be wiped off the map within days. It would seem your brother and your sister are on opposite sides, with you caught in the middle. Myself and your sister fight for the side of darkness, as you've probably guessed. I won't lie, many consider us to be evil and wicked. Some of us fight for the power victory holds, others for sheer survival. But the truth is they're one in the same. Whether you choose to fight with us or against us is your choice alone to make, but be certain you will have to make that choice eventually, however hard it may be." R said, concluding his speech to sapphire.

    He glanced over at Moonflow, indicating that if she had anything to add, now would be the time to do so.

  6. "That little history lesson, is quite sadly right. Also, I would figure someone like you would be able to show at least a small amount of courtesy to the other side, seeing as this supposed battle has not started yet and we are not enemy's as of now. I would like to know: Why would you crush the forest? If my guess is right, a member of your trainees was fighting a loosing battle to a warrior of light, from your speech, I assume the three are brothers and sisters, The pretty little red head over here by the wall is the youngest and was abandoned here at a young age by her dark hearted sister, the brother full of a cup of light and Keyblade in hand went off training to be able to try his luck for the ultimate power, and the parents had passed on to the next life. Now if your history sounds about right here, you two young misses, then my mind reading has gotten better." Zayde looked around at his listeners for a moment, and then continued. "Years pass, your student has completed her training with you, and decides to go onto her own, eventually coming here for her sister to have her train in the ways of darkness, and the brother fished his training years ago, and just oh so happened to stumble upon his younger sister and his other sister. The two clash because they think they're interests are better for her, you crush the forest to try and kill the brother as your student is being beaten and the younger sister fleas the scene. Most of that last part was a guess though." Zayde shifted his balance a little as he waited for their responses.

    Oda continued to play his harmonica trying to ignore all that was going on around him but he still sensed R and Moonwalk so he decided to send a little message to R. The tune Oda was playing changed to Falling inside the black. The tune contained a slight darkness which is only noticeable by R. It contained a message saying "Leave the girl with me I'll show her the way".

    "Sure lets walk and talk and too answer your question I taught myself how to use magic" said Spine was he walked to Louvel's side.

    Moonflow knelt by her sister end put her hand on her sisters shoulder. "Listen to me Sapphire. I want us to be a family again just like old times. Just me and you. The only reason I left you here alone is because I knew it was a safe place where you could let your powers grow. I went off to become a more suitable teacher for you. I have recently been shown that I may not be your best teacher but R is. Don't think I don't see that little bit of darkness in you. You were meant to join us on this side. The people of the light will fear you if you try to join them. They will try to change you because they fear what that darkness holds. But with R's help we can mould that darkness into and make you more powerful. We need you Sapphire. I need you." Moonflow concluded as she gave a slight smile to her sister.

    Just then she heard the other man there talking. "Thanks for the little story on our lives but I think we all know it well enough and none of us need your help." She snapped at him. She was uncomfortable with the fact that this man could read their minds and found that all out about them. She glared at the man slightly then turned back to her sister awaiting a response.

    Sapphire moved away from her sister when she was done talking, pushing her hand off her shoulder. The idea of more power caught her interest but she didn't know how she felt about the darkness. To be honest it kind of scared her, but her sister was right she did contain a bit of darkness and that darkness got the better of her at times. Maybe she did belong to that side maybe not. Over all she didn't like the idea of war but it was going to happen with or without her help. She would have to choose between her brother and her sister.

    "I-I don't know..." She stammered. "I don't know what to think right now." Those where the only words she managed to force out of her mouth. After she said that she returned her gaze back to the ground in front of her and remained quiet hoping that everyone would just leave her be and stop trying to drag her into this. She hated having to choose sides but she did know that she would have to eventually.

    Louvel started to walk out to the main square. "That is neat." He said to Spine as they walked. "Hey you wouldn't happen to know of anyone who has a weapon like this?" He summoned his keyblade to show Spine in hopes that he would direct him to the people he needed to fine. Louvel kept searching the crowd for either of his sisters. He had to stop Moonflow from turning Sapphire to the darkness. The kings mission wasn't his focus even though he was trying to complete it at the same time. "Sorry if I seem a bit distracted right now. I have to find me sisters." He explained. He didn't want Spine to think he was ignoring him or didn't care about what he had to say because he did. He just had other things to focus on at the same time.
     
  9. "Now, leve her alone. I am not here just to concert her to either side. In fact I prefer if all sides were all in the middle. rothers be brotees and sisters be sisters again, without the boarder of light and darkness to force them to choose. If she willingly joins a side, without perswasion, then it truely will be her choice. If you drag people into decisions they make the wrong one for themselfs more often than not. If she wants to work with darkness, woulden't that glimmer of light do the same: make them try and change her? And knowing a enemy just as well as yourself is a powerful advantage. I can creep in your head and learn everything about you as a person, every detail and every secret, yet I won't at this moment. The only reason I am here is to be an stand in for the brother and give the poor girl a little meat on her bones, she looks like she doesn't eat like a human should normally.No thanks to her less than careing sister." Zayde glared back at the older sister. "I would rather be balanced on the sides, rather than light or darkness after my 15 years of training showed me the horror of both sides.I just want you to conveyer what's.best for her, rather than what's best for you." He then turned to the younger sister."Choose your own path, not one placed on a plate for you. I hope you have a good journey. Good bye." Zayde then jumpped to the top of the train building, and used his keublade glider to fly off.

    "A nice sentiment. Unfortunate it'll never happen." R whispered to himself at Zayde's words. At the same time, he pondered what to do about the dark message hidden beneath the music which filled the air. He could tell it was meant for him, and him alone. He was to leave Sapphire with the harmonica player for instruction. He wasn't sure he entirely trusted him. After all, the light was right to call some of them evil. After a moment, he decided to leave her to the harmonica player, but not without precaution. Around his hand and up his arm, the air looked off. There were black..distortions. Bends in the appearance of what was seen. they gathered together in the palm of his hand and formed a jet black stone which he then set by Sapphire. "Should you ever need me for any reason, whether it's that you'd like to let us know your answer or you feel you're in danger, that stone will let me know." As he finished saying that, glanced at Oda, letting him know that was his answer. He walked through a dark corridor and left, leaving it open behind him for Moonflow to follow.

    Elsewhere, Beucefilous was wandering around town when something caught his interest, A man with a Keyblade. That may well be his ticket to what he came here for. "Yo! You over there with the thing!" He called, then ran up to him. "You're a keyblade wielder right?" He asked him once he was closer, although the answer was fairly obvious.

    Moonflow smiled at her sister. "You have done fine so far on your own and I trust that you will keep doing fine. Good luck and I hope you make the right decision." With that Moonflow turned and followed R. As soon as they were on the other side she had to stop and ask "So we are just going to leave her there? You do realize that my brother will be trying to convince her to join his side too. By leaving her there she will probably join his side just to be with family. You do know that right?" Her voice had a slightly annoyed tone to it. This was not in her plan. None of it was.

    Sapphire remained seated on the ground as she watched her sister leave. As soon as they left she started to play with the stone that the man left behind for her. If nothing else she would use it to see her sister again hopefully. She slid it into her pocket and looked around wondering where her brother was and what she should do next.

    Louvel looked up surprised to see another man, and he knew what the weapon was. "I am, and I assume you are one as well since you seem to know what it is." He simply stated. Then he continued. "I assume you have heard about the war? I have been sent to find other wielders of the light and bring them back to my master for more training. Will you come with me? But first I have a... family matter to deal with."

    After Moonflow and R had Left Oda stopped playing and walked towards Sapphire. He stopped and looked at Sapphire's face then looked at the tunnels and started walking towards then. He started to play Boulevard of Broken Dreams as he continued to walk towards the tunnels.

    "Don't worry about that. You remember the harmonica player? He'll turn her down the path of darkness." He said to her as he looked up at the twisted brown and green castle exterior. This castle had quite a bit of history. A former training ground for Wielders of light, that fell into the darkness but was locked in limbo by one of the students that trained there. It was perfect to be where he trained Moonflow and any others who joined them. "Refresh my memory, where did we leave off?"

    [​IMG]

    "You kidding me? That's the reason i came here." Beucefilous said to Louvel as he asked him to come with him. "Well if you've got business then get to it!"
     
  14. As Zayde flew over the forest, he saw many animals hurt, many trees flattened, and a few people brandish strange weapons, they all seemed to be of the light side, but he divided to find out for himself. First, however, he went down and healed some of the woodland animals by giving them potions and using his power over water to help the blood loss in the animals. He then proceeded to the small group of people to overhear the conversion about finding keyblade wielders for more training. He decided to stay back in case it was a trap, just in case.

    Moonflow still had a bit of a protective side over her sister. "How do you know you can trust that man? Have you met him or something before?" She let out a sigh as she calmed down a bit. "We left off with working on techniques to disarm your enemy." She informed him. Part of the reason she left was because he refused to teach her anything besides that until she got that down, but Moonflow was more into straight force and wanted to gain more strength and power. She didn't feel like that was what she was learning there.

    Sapphire was interested in this harmonica playing man. Like the song he was playing earlier she felt a connection to it. Sapphire got up and followed the man towards the tunnel system because it seemed like he was indicating for her to follow. She didn't know who this gut was or what he wanted be she would like to find out. As she followed him she moved her hand over the dagger that was strapped to her thigh just in case she needed it.

    "Right I will try to make this quick." Louvel said as he followed Spine. He turned a corner and saw his sister entering the tunnels with a man he had never seen before. He didn't like the looks of things. "Sapphire!" He shouted as he ran to catch up to them in the tunnels.
     
  16. Zayde heard the one looking for recruits yell the name of the girl from earlier. "He must be the brother. I will follow them and see what unfolds. I will invite myself to the group.Zayde said to himself.
    Zayde ran up to the brother and grabbed his shoulder. "Why are you after that girl too? I was caught in the middle of a her and another red head and some creepy guy trying to convert her to darkness. Are you in their services too?" Zayde, said to the man.

    Spine did nothing but continue to walk towards the tunnels trying not to let on he knew what the others were talking about.

    Oda had sensed Louvel and played his harmonica so loud Sapphire would not be able to hear the shout. At this moment Oda rushed into the tunnels hoping Sapphire would run after him so they could lose him in the tunnels.

    Watching everything that had happened below, Kel had decided to follow the harmonica playing man into the tunnels. Fortunately for him, all he had to do was follow the sound of music and it'll surely lead him to the source. The only problem was that he didn't know what to do if he found them. The other sources of darkness had left so all that left was to make sure the neutral party didn't side with darkness.

    "That girl is my sister and I want to keep her away from the darkness. I can't let Moony change her. And I don't know who that guy she was following is but I have to catch up the them. I don't like the looks of him. Now if you would excuse me." Louvel left without another word. He started to chase after his sister in an attempts to catch up to her. He couldn't let her slip away but it might be easy in this tunnel system.

    As the man took off running Sapphire chased after him. "Hey wait up." She shouted after him but she doubted he would hear her since he started to play his music even louder. She had no idea why they were sprinting but she followed just because this man intrigued her. She needed to fine out more about him and his music.

    Faust only walked a short distance away from Market Street; only about one hundred feet or so lay behind him when he decided on a quicker manner of transportation. Like the Darkness and Light, the essence of Naught was always present to allow its denizens safe passage through its corridors. These corridors had been Faust's primary, and favorite, way of getting from points A to B. One instance, he was walking into a discrete alleyway off of the main road. In the next instance his figure seemed to simply fade into space itself. It reappeared at the top of the hill, at the edge of the spacious Station Plaza.

    It wasn't very busy at that moment, an unusual sight, though not unheard of. Faust had missed out on most of what had proceeded there, but caught things just in time to know that something had happened. As soon as he had arrived, a small group of people dispersed from atop the Station Tower. One flew off aboard a glider of some sort. Other simply made their way to the ground. But in that moment it was a pair that vanished through a dark corridor that caught Faust's eye. He recognized one of them, the male, from the descriptions of him that had passed through both his clients and other locals. "R," he said under his breath. "Heartless of a world lost to Darkness. Certainly one of his power is pulling some significant strings."

    As he wondered what the Heartless' was up to lingering in a place like Twilight Town, he observed several other people making theirs leave from the plaza, and tailed them. All at once, it seemed, the lot of them made their way into the underground concourse that connected the town's various districts. One of them, a man playing woeful melodies on a harmonica, intrigued Faust, as did a young girl that had followed him into the concourse. Careful of where he tread, Faust slipped, unnoticed by the others, into the concourse, trailing quietly and cautiously behind the last two to enter.​
