    Night was sitting peacefully in the darkness, his eyes closed. He was tuning his senses for the battle that would soon commence. His thoughts wandered back to a small little town, his friends faces, and the smell of the fresh ocean air. He knew that he had to concentrate harder to accomplish his goal, but those memories kept coming back to him. It had already been what felt like an eternity, but he knew it had only been a few minutes. There was something about the dark that made him uneasy. He thought it ironic, and laughed to himself. "That which I am, is not what I wish to be."

    Luna, who was right behind Night, was trying to accomplish the same thing. She had been pretty successful up until Night made that short outburst. "Could you please focus a little more Night? If we don't do this she's gonna get mad." She went back to her training, giving it her best. Though she couldn't help but think about the statement Night made, and how much she believed it to be true to her. "You know," she hesitated.

    "I know what?" Night chuckled catching her off guard.

    "You know, you're not the only one who doesn't like the path they're on." She sighed opening her eyes and standing up. She stretched while the feeling in her legs began coming back.

    "So, you'd have rather been working for the dark?" Night did the same, yawning in the process.

    Luna didn't reply, she just sighed. She did, however, think to herself, "No you idiot, I would've been happy either way. As long as I could have been on the same path as you."

    "Hey, we've been training far too long. Let's go and investigate the town, what do you say?" Night flicked on a light revealing the empty room they had been sitting in this whole time.

    Luna smiled and walked towards the door, "Fine, but you're gonna buy me something this time."

    Night sighed, "I buy you something every time." The two of leave through the door and head for town.

    Oda sensed someone was following him and Sapphire so he decided he would use his music to trap people in a trance including himself. He started to play Rose of May on his harmonica so loudly with all the emotion he could muster. So when someone heard the turn it puts people in a trance. In the trace people see their memories of all their family and friends and all their loses. Even Oda himself wasn't immune to the effects of his own music. He began to see his entire life within the darkness, He saw his birth, his childhood, his choices and even his old dreams. All he seen weighed heavy on his heart but only he could see that.

    Spine has entered the Tunnels and Oda's music hit his ears, he just froze as his time began to play in his head. He saw his father, his mother and even his long lost Uncle who had been lost when he was so young. He saw his life hiding in the library reading all the books he could. The words his uncle said to him came back "A man's heart is a unpredictable thing just know it bears both the light and the dark, but is down to you to decide which path is right for you" He remembered the Vow he made the day he lost all the people he cared about and his home to a disaster. The memories of his birth flowed into his head followed by his happy childhood to his thirteenth birthday. He remembered the darkness engulf his parents and the tragic event that took place straight after. He saw a sword pierce his uncle's heart and his uncle's last words came back to him. "Dear Spine my time is over now take my powers and follow your own path, walk the path of your heart do not make the same mistake I made" Tears flew down Spine's face as his memories continued to enter his mind including the gifts his uncle passed on to him on that tragic day.

    Continuing to follow the sounds of music, Kel was immediately effected by Oda's song and showed images of his family and friends. The feeling of nostalgia would've overtook him if not for the other images he was showed. His home world being engulf in darkness due to his mistake and his heart being partially tainted by the resulting darkness. Even though the he was still in a trance, the images showed were enough to keep in body moving forward.
     
  4. Zayde started to hear the music, and his mind wander, but he immediately used his water magic to block the sound, as instint so told him. He made himself deaph to all sound, even his own voice. "I am glad that my masters taught me to be able to counter sound, and more Importantly, sound magic. I cannot do this for longer than 20 minutes. Still..." He quickly flashed back to the hoards of heartless killing his parents."That's enough reminiscing." He said to himself, although he could not hear it. He then revved the engin of the keyblade glider, so loud that for miles, no one could hear anything but its loud roar and cacophony as it mixed with the harmonica. He then picked up the brother of the one girl from earlyer and began to fly back to the tunnel entrance, picking up the other two who entered with them that were closet to the entrance, and flew back to the usual spot. "I am sure glad that I don't need sound in order to fly a keyblade glider. Anyway, are you three okay?" Zayde said to the three other young wielders.

    Sapphire stopped dead in her tracks as the song started to play. All the sudden all her memories starting when she was about four years old came rushing back to her. It started with her brother leaving to go train. She was standing at the front door with her sister as her parents were giving Louvel a hug before sending him off. Her mother was crying and her father look proud of his son. Sapphire saw herself standing there trying to hold back tears. The sound of her sisters voice echoed through her head. "It's okay Sapphire. I am here for you. I will never leave you. Louvel will be back before you know it." The next thing that her mind jumped to was a few years later. Moonflow and Sapphire where sparing in the woods when they came across a heartless. Not knowing what it was Sapphire approached it to touch it, thinking it was some kind of odd pet. It attacked her but Moonflow was able to kill it before it did too much damage. Moonflow had taken her home and made up an excuse for her since they weren't suppose to be in the woods, or sparing. All these memories started to make her think that she should have just followed her sister. Her brother had never done anything for her anyway's.

    Just as that thought crossed her mind, she remembered the day her parents were killed. They had taken a vacation to another world. She was in the house they rented with her parents and Moonflow was out explore. That is when a bunch of heartless attacked the house. Sapphire ran and hid in a corner and watched her parents try to fight them off. The more they killed the more showed up. They murdered her parents then left except for a few small ones that still roamed the house. It was not long after that her sister returned home. She was able to kill the few heartless that were still in the house. It was then that Sapphire crawled out of her hiding spot and ran to hug her sister in tears. But instead of hugging her Moonflow slapped her across the face and started to yell at her about how useless she was and how if she was able to stand and fight that there parents would still be there. In her rage she had beat Sapphire up pretty bad and left. It was a week before Sapphire saw her sister again. She told her to pack her bags and that they were heading home. Instead of taking her home though she took her to Twilight Town. The last words that her sister said to her were "Try to stay alive twerp. I have my own path to follow and you will only weigh me down." With that she left. The rest of Sapphires memories were filled with her attempts at surviving, getting in fightts with the locals and her loneliness. This set of memories made her think that she didn't want to go with her sister in fears of being treated like dirt and pushed around again.

    Standing there in the trance she really wanted to cry. All the memories brought back so many feelings that she had been trying to suppress for years. She hated showing her emotions and she wouldn't let them escape now. So she struggled but managed to keep a straight face despite all the emotions and memories racing through her head.

    As Louvel heard the music his mind also jumped to the day he had to leave. Staring at his sisters standing at the door way over his mothers shoulder as she hugged him. He never wanted to leave them but his parents didn't give him a choice. They saw something great in him and wanted him to properly learn. He remembered all the lonely nights in his room, staring at his family photo wishing he could at least talk to his family again, but he wasn't allowed to. He never understood why though. No one would explain to him and eventually he just came to accept it. Before he could remember anything else, not that there was much else to remember anyway's he was travelling out of the tunnel. It took him a minute to realize how. Once they had stopped, the one man who confronted him in the tunnels asked him if they where okay. Louvel filled with a bit of rage. "What were you thinking? My sister is still in there. I need to get her away from that man!" He started to run back over to the tunnels. Before he got to far he turned back to them. "No one follow me. I have to do this on my own. But you with the glider, stay put. I have to talk to you about that keyblade of yours when I get back." With that he made his way back to the tunnel entrance but stopped before he entered. He needed to wait till the man was done playing the song before he could even consider entering again.
     
  6. "Heasitaying before entering. Waiting the song out. Good plan, but it won't work well. He is.trying to stall us. I have a way of tracking them without being forced to stop by the song. It can only be used for 20 minutes though. But he is counting on us not following him and your sister. Your mind will be trapped in a sea if memorys. It might be safer if we just track them down. I know where every tunnel is so tracking will not be a problem. It's all up to you, though." Zayde said, as he walked over to the tunnel opening and stood by the man. "Just keep in mind: your decision will change the entire outcome. If we go in, we may not find them fast enough. If we wait, he might capture her. You choose."

    Faust was mere steps into the underground concourse when he heard it. A haunting melody playing on a lone harmonica echoed from the depths of the tunnels. "One of them," he said, remembering seeing someone with such an instrument earlier. "But what does he hope to accomplish? Leading everyone into a trap?"

    As though in answering to his question, the melody reached Faust in its fullest possible effect, which was lessened due to his proximity to the tunnel exit just outside of its range. The effect was intoxicating at best. He suspected that a person with a Heart would have crumbled to tears before the piece itself. That was letting alone what it seemed to bring to the minds of those who would hear it playing. A hypnotic effect, a spell of one sort or another, was carrying through with the sound waves.

    As if imprinted against the very scene of the concourse around him, disfigured, shadowy outlines moved in front of Faust's eyes. In his head, he could the voice of his younger self, though not much younger. "Come at me!" the voice said with glee, "take me, good Darkness!! Render me Naught! I DARE you!" Then, the words stopped, and a fading laughter followed them, the laughter of that same younger Faust. The real Faust chuckled in amusement; was he supposed to have been stirred by this display of his past? The image itself faded from sight, disappearing into thin air.

    And Faust stood, listening, unmoved and then unaffected by the melody. He smiled. He shook his head in disappointment. Then, he continued his way through the concourse, following the sound of the music. He stepped with an awkward amble, as though he had enjoyed a strong drink or two; the effect of the trance spell, though broken from their full effect, lingered as a disorienting factor within the normally graceful man. A few more glimpses of random scenes from his memories flashed before him in the same phantasmic form as the first one.

    Regardless, he managed to make his way to the source of the music; the glimpses of his past were, after all, of no consequence to him. The lone harmonica player stood in one of the larger sections of the concourse, a crossways to which many other corridors were connected and branched out to various spots in town. Rubbing his head as one who was trying to massage a headache, he set his eyes upon the musician. Several times, he cleared his through as loudly as he could in the hopes of getting man's attention. "You know, the ghosts of the past do little to stop those without regret."​

    When Oda's soft harmony pierced Beuce's ear, His mind went black. His memories flashed before his eyes, Thoughts of his family and friends weaved into a lucid dream. His dad, His mom...They're still waiting for him to get home. He thought of Rain, The woman he could never forget. She was a brilliant woman who befriended Beuce but then left their world, atleast that's what the town's people said.He went in search of her, Not beliving what they said. He'd told his parents he was leaving to find her, That he'd be back within a week, That's why he went to see Merlin. He needed to go to other worlds, not just to find Rain, But to be happy. He was glad Merlin was batshit insane and teleported him to this world.. but, What was he doing? Where was he going to go? Rain ... Maybe he was on his way to her.

    "There's a reason i gave her that crystal. Now then, let's see what you remember. Try to disarm me." R said, summoning a simple sword.

    Oda had finally stopped playing and he stared at the entranced Sapphire waiting for her to awaken. He put his harmonica away and placed his hand on his sword then drew it out and hid it behind him out of sight in the tunnels since the tunnels were dark and the sword is black. He ignored everything else around focusing only on Sapphire.

    Spine was too far into the tunnels to be saved by Zayde but he awoke from the trance and made his way further into the tunnels looking for something that he sensed. He ran as fast as he could because he had to know what it is he senses, his curiosity is leading him once more.

    Awakening from his trance like state, Kel looked around to get a general idea on where he was. Clearly he was still I the tunnels, but hopefully close to the harmonica playing man he'd followed in. Now back in control of his body, he headed down the path that didn't lead him in a circle. Still without a plan of action, improvising seemed like the path he would take once he'd found them.

    Sapphire awoke from her trance state and looked at the harmonica player. "J-just who are you exactly. H-how did you do that." She stuttered while she attempted to hold back the tears in her eye. She took one step towards the man then hesitated not sure what to do now. She played around with the black stone that was in her pocket. She didn't know what to think of this man. She considered calling her sister and the man she was with back, but thinking of the memories she just experienced she didn't know if that was a good idea. She redirected her confusion and sadness to anger as she took another step forward. "Tell me who you are! I mean it!" She drew her dagger and held it in front of her with no real intention to use it. She just felt a bit better to have it in hand.

    Louvel heard the echo of music subside in the tunnel. "Thanks for the offer, but I think I need to do this by myself. Stay here." He replied to Zayde as he turned and sprinted into the tunnels in a desperate attempt to find his sister. This time instead of calling her name or anything he stayed quiet and light on his feet as to not draw any attention to himself. He hoped to make it to his sister before this man realized he was even in the tunnel system again.

    Moonflow rolled her eyes as she summoned her keyblade. She leaped forward in an attempt to disarm her master. Although she knew that he didn't have to teach her and that she should be treating this training as more of a privilege then a right she couldn't help but talk back to her master. "This is so pointless. Why can't we work on more of the important stuff, like that gravity spell you used back in Twilight Town. You will never need to know how to disarm your enemy if you can just kill him before that." Moonflow was obviously irritated and didn't want to actually listen. She had never been one for technique, she usually relied purely on force.
     
  12. "OK. And when you're back, we will chat about the matter at hand." Zayde told the man as he went inside of the tunnel once more. Zayde then went over to the vending machine in the area they were in, and then purchased 4 ice cream sticks, handing one to each of the people he saved, stirring the other 2 in a crook of his armor. As the wrapper crackles, Zayde eared for the possible new ally.

    Spine was still running when he came across Louvel but he remained silent as they reached where Oda was.

    Oda took a step towards Sapphire then he noticed the new guests. Oda just closed his eyes and walked back towards the wall where he learned and began emitting a dark essence to see if it tempts the blade of the light.

    "Hey you!" Louvel yelled out at Oda. "You leave my sister alone! Stop trying to tempt her with darkness." Louvel took a step towards Oda with keyblade in hand ready to fight for his sisters safety.

    Sapphire took a step back into a corner. She didn't want to be a part of this fight. She didn't even want the fight to start, it was her choice to be there. She wouldn't speak up though because she had a feeling she would be silenced. Everyone thought they knew what was best for her, but how could they when she didn't even know? It annoyed her that everyone thought their side was better for her because they wanted her for their own gain. To her it seemed like no one had her interests in mind just their own. As she thought about this a small amount of darkness started to stir in her. It reflected in her eyes as they started to change to a dark red colour, but she wouldn't let it take over. She couldn't let it take over.

    By the time Kel had reached the area that Oda was in, he saw that he wasn't the only one there. He chose to wait and see how it would play out before taking any action, If it seemed like he wasn't needed at all, then he would simply leave. Otherwise he would join in the battle.

    Spine saw the new arrival and walked towards him. "hey I think we are gonna have quite a show here I'm Spine what is your name?" asked Spine as he stopped next to Kel.

    Oda pointed his sword at Louvel as to say Mind your own business. At this time Oda withdrew his own darkness so he shown no light or darkness to all around. But anyone could tell Oda wasn't going to walk away from Sapphire yet and if he had to fight he would.
     
  17. When Sapphire's brother was about to where they were before, Zayde used his water magic to track him. Once he found the other people, dayde releasted the tracking, now knowing where they were, and peared into the mind of Sapphire.

    Zayde's nearly had a fit, after reading Sapphire's mind. "Ah, what you don't know is, Sapphire, that in my own opinion you deserve your freedom to choose. I think it would be better to have you choose the side for yourself, if you want light, light is what you should go for. If you choose darkness then, I would hope it to be your path to true happiness. I wish I had explained my stance on it better back here, but that is the past." Zayde thought to himself. "And how foolish of your brother to not sense I used tracking magic on him. It was such a weak tracking mark, I figured I would loose it, or that the brother would be able to tell before he found the others in there and dispatched of it.

    It surprises me every day, when I do better than I thought I would. Now Sapphire, you're going to be my eyes and ears, seeing as you have the best viewing spot." Zayde thought. Using his water magic, he closed his eyes and was able to tell what was going on. It was a highly advanced magic he had only used once before. Her brother was standing there in front of the Harmonica playing man, who was pointing his sword at her brother. Two men were off to the back of the Harmonica Player, spectators like the rest of us. "Lets see what Sapphire's brother is made of." Zayde said to himself, as he leaned on the wall, eyes shut.

    "I wouldn't even think about it if I were you." Louvel cautioned as he readied his keyblade. "I will do whatever it takes to protect my sister from someone like you!" Louvel stepped forward to attack. He took a swing at Oda with one hand, knowing that the swing he took would be easy to block. In the other hand he started to create an orb of fire. He kept his one hand low and tried to keep it from seeming like he was planning anything until the moment he would be blocked. At that moment he would thrust the orb a fire forward towards Odas stomach. Louvel figured even if Oda figured out he was doing something he wouldn't be able to stop both attacks.

    Sapphire watched as her brother took the first move. Part of her was happy that he cared enough to come and try to save her. The other part was annoyed at him for thinking she didn't know what she was doing. He was never there for her before, why should he be here for her now? Why couldn't he have come to save her when Moonflow had beaten her up and left her for a week after their parents died. Instead he decided to show up when she didn't need his help? To her this entire thing was ridiculous. There shouldn't even be a fight in the first place. She wanted to tell Louvel off. Tell him that she didn't need him here but she thought that this fight would be entertaining and didn't want to stop it. So she watched in silence to see how it would play out.

    "And tell me, What do you plan to do if that doesn't work?"

    R said, sidestepping to avoid her lunge. "While it's difficult, Escaping that spell is far from impossible. If you want to be the strongest, you need to be ready for any situation. If an overwhelming display of force doesn't finish them off, you need something to fall back on, That and consider this your punishment for leaving. You'll be doing a refresher on everything. Once you've mastered melee combat, i'll teach you my more powerful spells. Once you've mastered all of that, I'll teach you something even more powerful." Said the mentor promisingly.

    [​IMG]
    As Beuce woke up from the trance, he stretched. "Man and i was just getting to the good part. Ah well, what can ya do?" He said casually as he looked to the fight which seemed to be going on. "Let's see what teach here has got." He thought to himself.

    Spine just watched from the side lines "Louvel seems strong but something tells me that Harmonica guy is not to be taken lightly Kel" said Spine as he watched the battle taking place.

    Oda recognized the tactic Louvel was using since he had used it himself once before during his youth one his first visit to another world. So Oda did the same thing and with his blade blocked Louvel's Keyblade and made a ball of darkness to send flying into Louvel's ball of fire once t is thrown. Knowing that Louvel's last move was worthless Oda took the chance to strike back and by using both hands struck hard and fast towards Louvel.
