    Ananta was far too busy trying to shield the unconscious Anta. She was cradling him in her arms and pressing her face against his in feeble attempts to protect him from any and all attacks that were being thrown at them. She closed her eyes when she felt the area around her changing. It had become much, much hotter than it was before. The ground beneath Ananta was warm, but luckily not as hot as she thought it would be compared to everywhere else around her. Standing up, she held Anta in her arms and looked around. Half her comrades were gone and only she and a few others were here to fight Chaos. At this moment, Ananta could only stand and look down at Anta, wondering what she could do. There was one thing she could do, but Anta was passed out...

    Looking up, she felt a great balance of light and dark within Juliet. The girl seemed strange, but Ananta felt as if she would be the best choice for the time being. Stepping towards the girl, Ananta looked sullen. What with Anta being knocked out and the world going to crap, but at least everything will be fine soon enough. As she approached, Ananta stared at Juliet. "Take care of him for me. This'll only be a moment." she said, handing Anta to Juliet. Turning around to Chaos, Ananta noticed Gexln running towards Chaos.


    Shaking her head, she ran off and stopped him with Stopaga. As he stood there, she then made sure to cast a strong Blizzaja on his legs. She hoped this would keep him still so she could at least fight Chaos a little more. Standing in front of him, she clapped her hands together and began to pray in her own language. As she did, her body began to glow of light. Her entire body disappeared and soon, the light dissipated. It revealed her skin had turned completely emerald. Her mouth was gone and she had no clothing on. Luckily, her body was now made of a thick crystal, protecting her body. Her hair still flowed from her head, now trailing on the ground from not having a hair tie on anymore. Her eyes were now just simple stone, nearly the same color as the rest of her body, but much darker.

    In her hand, the X-blade appeared. As she stepped, small shards of the crystal could be seen left behind. That was indicative that this form was not something that would last for a long time. As she approached Chaos, he watched her and smirked. Immediately, he rushed towards her and began to attempt combos on her. As he did, she kept meeting his attacks with her own. Every now and again, she got a chance to deal some damage to him. Cries of anguish erupted from Chaos as pillars of fire shot up from the ground and surrounded them. The heat was intense, but Ananta was able to tough it out. More and more, she fought him. As she did, the crystal began to break away and her skin was being exposed more each time. Luckily, the fire pillars were still up so she was at least shielding the younger ones from her nudity.

    Once only a small part of the crystal was left, Chaos was able to cause Ananta to miss with the X-blade and he swung his fist straight at her last bit of crystal on her chest. Gasping, Ananta quickly summoned her keyblade armor and took the brunt of the punch. She was shot out of the fire pillars and sent flying. She landed hard next to Gexln and coughed, the wind knocked out of her. Standing up, Ananta coughed and wheezed. The X-blade's power was what caused her to not die. Looking at Gexln, she put the X-blade next to him in case he was going to use it. Limping towards Juliet, Ananta was going to take Anta back.

    Kross kept deflecting away bullets and pointed his keyblade at Aphrodite."Your attacks are doing nothing, Ma."He said with a grin."You may have been strong before but, I've gotten even better."He said. He brandished his keyblade to the side, but stood still. Aphrodite rose a brow. "Is that it? A stance? I--" Suddenly, she felt an intense pain along her mid section. She clutched her stomach and her eyes widened. It couldn't be..how did Kross..She slumped forward, her upper torso slid right off of her legs and landed to the ground with a thud. Kross was a few yards off, brandishing his keyblade and looked back at her."Not only did I get stronger, I got quicker too.

    Kross heard Gexln and looked at him with a frown."Excuse me for being busy..I'm coming!" He called out. He started forward but an earthquake stopped him. It looked like Omega was at full power, just as he feared. Chaos wasn't going to be any easier. He grit his teeth."Dammit, I hate it when this happens. This is exactly what happens when you wait too long for an enemy to gather energy."He said. It's been done in Dragonball Z, Naruto and all kinds of anime. Why the hell did it have to be in an RP like this? This was it."Dammit, I'm going to use the X-blade."He said and dispelled Odin. He rose up his hand, light surrounding his hand . The X-Blade appeared in his hand and he gripped it. Power surged through him and his eyes widened. A light flashed around his form, his hair turning from white to navy blue and his eyes from red to honey brown. He brandished the x-blade and looked at it."Whoa..so this is the power of the x-blade.."He said. He faced the intimidating figure of the titan of destruction, Chaos."That's it, I'm not going to hold back. You forced me to do this, to kill my mother and now you're going to pay."He said."Ananta, stay back! I'm going to slay this thing"He called out. He brandished the blade and charged at Chaos, poising the blade and grit his teeth. He gave a battlecry and swung, intending to cleave Chaos's legs off.​

    They had all done their parts spectacularly, destroying the pillars of energy flowing into Omega. With that, Omega was vulnerable. However, It wouldn't simply die without a fight. Gathering up energy, an enormous halo appeared above Omega's head, shedding a pale turquoise light over the empty realm. With a simple thought, the halo expanded at speeds exceeding what the eye was even capable of following, bringing with it a shockwave like no other. Easily blowing everything in its path high off the ground. R was protected in part from the shockwave by the dark construct which stood between its master and the agent of beginning. However, it could do naught but soften the blow. It shattered as the unimaginable force struck it. R, however, was spared from the brunt of the assault.

    The heartless summoned the X-blade to him. There was no time to waste. With him being the closest, he had to finish it, or it was unlikely they'd be able to regain their ground. He'd seen the second part of this tactic of the agent, and in a realm where he controlled the terrain, R doubted there would be much opportunity to evade anything the agent did. R's body turned solid black for a moment, leaving him with the appearance of a silhouette. At his side, darkness rose from the ground, mimicking the shape. After the shape had fully formed, the black hue returned to normal color, revealing a duplicate of him to be standing next to R. This was quite possibly the biggest gamble anyone had ever made.

    The two Rs began took flight, racing toward Omega. They were met with the opposition of the crystal beasts that spawned from Omega, but they provided little hindrance. Bursts of energy raced through the air, attempting to stop the X-blade's current wielder. The two Rs went opposite directions in an attempt to force Omega to make a choice. Which one he wanted to focus his attacks on. If he chose wrong, R would reach him.


    Omega immediately turned his head toward the R to his right. The choice was a simple one. It had initially appeared that R was the leader of their opposition, but it the thought had been perished at this act of foolishness. There was one thing which clearly separated him from his decoy, and that was the X-blade itself. While there were two Rs, only one actually held the weapon. Omega could not help but find humor in the blunder. Something so simply overlooked had lead to his defeat. If not for that, he may have been able to overtake him. In what appeared to be a desperate effort to reach the agent, knowing he'd made a mistake, R raced at him head on.

    Omega began to gather energy in his chest. More so than any attack he'd previously displayed. This one would not be stopped no matter what was in it's way. Even the X-blade itself could not defend against it. In a race against time, R ended up losing. There was just too much ground to cover. An almighty burst of turquoise light erupted from Omega's chest. There was no way anyone could survive such an attack, Omega believed. And he was correct. The blow struck R with full force, and his body of darkness was blown away, purged from existence by the divine light of Kingdom Hearts. The X-blade fell from the air, plummeting to the ground, and finally stabbing into it, leaning to the side with a tilt.

    It seemed that R's foolish mistake had cost him not only his life, but that of everyone there by failing to finish it. Regaining ground on the agent would be a herculean task, and under constant fire without protection would make it impossible. However, not all was as it seemed. The presence of R should have vanished with his death, yet Omega still felt it clearly. Jerking his body around, he bore witness to the man he'd just killed, compressing a massive black sphere into the palm of his hand, and uttering the words which sounded like the end of a chant.

    "Star of the night, my greatest weapon. Black Sun!"


    Omega was in utter disbelief. "You...You used the X-blade as a decoy!" He shouted as the orb of darkness was thrust into his chest. It penetrated his outer armor without difficulty, and traveled deep into the center of the Agent's body. "How...?" Omega spoke. Confusion was the only thing which could be heard in his voice. To the embodiments of Kingdom Hearts' power, defeat was a concept so outlandish it hadn't even occurred to them as a possibility. Now that it had been realized, they barely knew how to react to it.

    "The impossible has come to pass, and the embodiment of creation has fallen." R said as his attack reached it's pinnacle position and erupted with an explosion. Omega, the agent of creation himself was torn apart from within by R's flames. The body of the agent split in two, spewing out the inferno which had ended it's life. As the fires of black sun died down, The realm Omega had created faded back into its original form. The body of their most trying foe lay on the ground, spanning most of the landscape. A beam of turquoise light sprung forth, connecting it with the heart shaped moon in the sky. Moments later, the body faded into shimmering dust. They'd done it. Victory was theirs.

    Xero was just floating in blackness. There was nothing around her, not even a sign of light. She was in and out if consciousness, her name was being called but then it faded away as she reentered the black void she was floating in. Xero couldn't move, couldn't breathe; she was scared. She didn't know where she was or what to do. Was this really her ending? Was she really dead? Tears began flowing down Xero's face. She had failed. She had failed R, herself, and Gexln. She told him that she could watch over herself and wouldn't get hurt. But here she was floating in oblivion for the rest of eternity. Xero's conscious was beginning to completely fade now. A mixture of blood loss and the hit from Chaos's pillar of flames were taking its toll on her.

    Juliet could only stand there in shock as Ananta handed Anta over to her to keep safe. Part of her was radiating an aura of darkness, the other part was glowing with the power of light, she didn't think she looked like a babysitter. She watched as Ananta went in to attack Chaos next. The girl couldn't help but admire Ananta's determination. Despite everything, she was trying to fight, and she was trusting her to protect her child, like some kind of magnificent...babysitter. A god damn babysitter. Setting Anta on the ground, Juliet took off towards Chaos. She passed by Ananta on the way as she ran, calling out "Sorry, saving the world beats babysitter duty anyday!" as she did so. The girl hurried onwards to help her father.

    Gexln had just engaged Chaos in battle. After the blizzaja had worn off, the swordsman had gone even faster towards Chaos, practically blinking towards him. He began his attack the moment he got nearby Chaos, dashing around him and periodically attacking him with his claws. Every so often his strike got through, but most were prevented by The Agent's defensive capabilities. He was relentless though, and he could feel his strikes having an impact. He was still striking, still circling Chaos, when his opponent retaliated.

    Chaos pulled both arms to his sides for a moment as Kross dashed in. Not expecting the attack, Kross' weapon stabbed straight into the Agent's leg, preventing him from moving. Normally Gexln would have made some kind of comment on that, but he was in a far more serious mood than he usually was, he was in a state of grief-driven madness, and his aggression showed. Chaos took advantage of this moment, and swiftly released a pillar of fire from beneath himself as Gexln lunged forward for another attack. The pillar of flame knocked Kross' weapon out and sent both Kross and Gexln spiralling away from the god before them.

    Gexln was quick with his reactions though, much faster than Chaos had anticipated. As the pillar of flame hit him, the Nobody of Darkness used gravity magic on himself, forcing him back onto the ground and onto his feet immediately. Rushing at Chaos once more, he stepped up the assault. This time, each of his strikes were empowered with the element of darkness and shot at a much faster rate. The Agent couldn't handle it particularly effectively, blocking some of the attacks and attempting to react with a swing of one of his blades, but the moment he swung Gexln was gone, too fast to hit. Taking damage fast and having no true way of stopping the keyblade wielder, Chaos did something that nobody could have seen coming but when you think about it is incredibly smart: he stuck out a leg and tripped Gexln.

    Taking advantage of the momentary confusion, The Agent stabbed his blades into each of Gexln's legs, preventing him from moving. He then gathered an enormous ball of flame in his hand and prepared to strike down Gexln and end this battle. But, right as he went to do that, he was stopped. Gexln had once again been saved by Satsujin, although he wasn't alone, Juliet was with him. Satsujin dashed forward with his blade in hand, moving around Chaos in a similar way that Gexln had, but faster. In between dashes, he would strike with his blade, slashing in about thirty different directions simultaneously, before dashing to the side and doing the same thing again. He kept this going, repeating that motion and avoiding any attempts Chaos made at stopping him, as Juliet began assaulting Chaos from the front with a bombardment of swings from her keyblade, mixing in blasts of both dark and light energy as she did so.

    Things were getting desperate for their opponent, and he knew it. If he was struggling this much with these mortals, he could only wonder how Omega was doing. He had to end it fast, before they did too much damage for him to recover from. Releasing another pillar of flame to knock the warriors away, Chaos now stabbed both of his blades into the ground beside himself and gathered two enormous fireballs, one in each hand. Using the powers over the area they were in, he manipulated the environment, and for a second there was complete silence. There was no fire heard in the background, no destruction of any kind, and then all at once it happened. Fireballs and meteors began raining from the sky once more, straight on top of the platform they were on.

    Gexln, Juliet and Ghost tried their best to keep attacking Chaos, but with the rate that they were falling and the area they were covering, it was near impossible to get close to Chaos once more. It seemed that all was lost, and Chaos knew that he had won. He let out a laugh, the kind you would expect to hear from a truly evil demon, but that laughter was cut off as quickly as it had started as Chaos felt something sever inside of him; the connection to Omega. Omega had fallen, and that sparked something inside of the demon that nobody could ever have thought possible; a shred of fear. Not very much, but it was enough. Enough to distract him enough that for a split second, the rain of fire and meteors ceased.

    The warriors saw their opportunity, and god damn they were going to take it. Juliet and Ghost resumed the attack pattern they had been doing before, but far more effectively due to Chaos no longer having the blades to defend himself with. Gexln, however, had another plan. He would end Chaos, and he would end it there and then. If someone looked closely, they would see tears on his face due to the loss of Xero, tears of both pain and undying rage. "Juliet, Satsujin, launch me!" he yelled out to them as he jumped up above them. The two below him responded accordingly and stopped their assault for just a moment, doing exactly as Gexln had asked and both propelling him upwards with all the strength they could muster.

    Gexln went skyward, far higher than he'd ever reached, and he knew immediately what had to be done. Launching himself downwards with all the momentum he could manage, the Nobody went rocketing vertically down towards Chaos. Xero, I promise you, I won't let you die in vain, I will kill him! he thought, thinking of her as he fell. With an extremely loud cry of rage, Gexln landed on top of Chaos with an almighty explosion of darkness as he released his dark shockwave. Knocked down on the ground, The Agent was in an exceptionally dangerous position. Gexln took advantage of this, and he stepped up and stood on top of Chaos. Then, acting quickly, he picked up one of Chaos' blades and raised it above his head. With unparalleled ferocity he began hacking and slashing at The Agent on the ground, cutting him up again and again with his own weapon until it was little more than a bloody corpse. Then, yelling once again, he began firing an endless barrage of Dark Firagas, each of them hitting the fallen Agent in front of him until there was nothing than a smouldering pile of ash.

    Stepping off of what remained of Chaos, Gexln rushed over to Xero. With tears in his eyes, there was no doubt that Gexln was crying as he desperately tried to use cure magic to heal her. However, due to him not knowing very much healing magic whatsoever, it did not work. As the area around him turned back into the keyblade graveyard, it was obvious that the battle was over, but Gexln didn't care about that. He picked up Xero's body and prepared to lay her to rest, but his heart skipped a beat as he heard the faintest sound coming from her; breathing. Xero was alive, but barely. He ran as fast as he could over to R, carrying Xero on the way and placing her at R's feet. He was kneeling in front of R now, and he began pounding on R's chest with his fists. He didn't care how childish he looked, he only cared about one thing. "R, please...please heal Xero! Save her! I don't care what you have to do, bring her back to me!" he begged, all confidence and general badassery gone from the warrior, only to be replaced with childlike desperation.

    The Beuces started singing as the realms disappeared and the agents had been defeated leaving everyone to celebrate their victories, morn their losses or have a fight with their mother if they so pleased. The sky seemed to brighten slightly as Kingdom Hearts glowed brighter than ever before. The lights and darks where able to defeat the agents, and work together to prove their power. It was time that the great entity granted it's power to those who proved themselves, or more so to he who proved himself the most. A bright light surrounded R, the leader who had brought them together and lead the battle. The bodies of Chaos and Omega dissipated into the dark sky in a shimmering light. The light of these two beings combined with one from Kingdom Heart's itself. Soon it shot down a great beam of power that surrounded R. Everything in the area moved with the wind that had been created when the power came down. As the light disappeared so did the heart shaped moon in the sky formally known as Kingdom hearts. Now it was nothing more than a memory to be had, with the power given away the moon was no more, not to ever be seen again. The only proof of it ever existing was the power that now flowed through R, the power that could not only destroy an entire planet within seconds but could also rebuild kingdoms that where in ruins. It seemed that the fate of the worlds lay with one man now.

    Xepphiras only watched as R attacked the agent that stood before them, watch as Omega seemed to almost kill him, watching in awe as R killed it. Soon after the realms disappeared leaving the girl to observe as the moon gave the powers of kingdom hearts where granted to R. The wind from it caused Xepphira's hair blew behind her. She didn't know what to do next, glancing over at the dragon she had summoned, she knew it wasn't necessary any more. Approaching it Xepphiras rested her hand on it's long nose. "Thank you for your help." She spoke quietly as the dragon evaporated leaving only blue shimmers that soon seemed to fly into her body, combining with it. It was almost as if the dragon itself was a part of her in some way.

    With that done Xepphiras walked up to R and Gexln observing the situation.
    "Is there anything I can do to help her? We have lost enough people already I don't want to see another die. Please tell me how can I help, there has to be SOMETHING I can do." Xepphiras pleated trying not to think of her sister and Valinton's dead bodies on the ground. The girl looked at Gexln as she knelt beside Xero to show that she meant no harm. She pet Xero's hair and looked at her face, she looked so peaceful but Gexln on the other hand did not. She didn't want to see anyone else suffer. "It will be okay, I promise." Xepphiras' child like innocence was plenty apparent.

    Ananta's head pounded as she knelt there. Removing her helmet, her hair flowed down and spilled all over the place. A trickle of blood spilled down the front of her face as an immense pain shot through her head. "Concussion...not too bad...I'll live." she told herself, pressing a small Cure spell onto her head to relieve some of the pain. Her eyes followed Gexln as he shot towards Chaos and dealt with him. Juliet followed after and she blinked for a moment. Turning around, she saw Anta was just lying on the ground. Gritting her teeth, she shook her head in disappointment. "Juliet, I didn't want you getting involved with this..." she sighed, continuing her limp towards Anta. Sitting down with him, Ananta stared off at Gexln's attack on Chaos.

    As Chaos was cut up and burnt to a crisp, Ananta ran her fingers through Anta's hair. The boy was still passed out, breathing shallowly. Tears pricked at Ananta's eyes, unsure of why Anta wasn't waking up. She had tried to heal him every time she held him in her arms, he just wouldn't wake up. As time was passing by, she could feel his crystal losing the little bit of light it had in it slipping away. "Wake up Anta..." she begged him, repeating this over and over as the world around them turned back into the keyblade graveyard.

    Standing up, Ananta lifted Anta into her arms. The boy was always frail. He wasn't supposed to stay in this war as long as he did. He was only supposed to stay to heal people and be an assistant. Not become a warrior. Ananta had given him such orders and yet he fought as hard as he did. Her mind began to fill with memories of raising Anta. There weren't many, seeing as she chose her duty over her son, but she still allowed him to follow her around when he was still young.

    Her oldest memory was of Beuce bringing Anta to her when he was a toddler. Anta had nearly fallen into the water at the base of the Mother Crystal. Luckily, Beuce had grabbed him in time. Ananta was angry at Beuce for allowing him to nearly fall, but she forgave him eventually. Other memories were flooding her mind as she was soon standing next to Gexln and Xero. Her leg nearly gave out as she knelt down and placed Anta next to Xero. He certainly wasn't as bad as Xero, but she could feel his life slipping away.

    Reaching a hand to Xero, Ananta placed it on her forehead and attempted to heal her even a little bit. Unfortunately, she didn't have the strength to heal her anymore. She was far too weak herself to stand up again. Tears began to fall down Ananta's cheeks as she sat there, holding Anta's hand. "Gexln..." she said, placing a hand on his back. She then hugged him and let go. "I tried...I...I couldn't do anything...my magic has run out, I'm running on empty..." she said, her voice cracking from her heart breaking. "We're both in the same predicament...I...I'm sorry..." she said, sobbing.


    Turning to R, she looked at him. "Please...try and save Xero first...she's worst off, I can tell...at least Anta is still breathing...." she said. For now, Anta was fine.

    R gave nearly no reaction as the power of Kingdom Hearts flowed into him. He simply let it happen. With the X-blade in his hand, and the power that had been fought over for millennia prior, none could question that right now, in this very moment, R was this single most powerful entity to ever exist. He bordered omnipotent. He turned to those begging him to heal the wounded. "You needn't fear. They will be fine. I shall see to it." And so he did. At first, he walked away from the group. However, his intentions for doing so were quickly made clear. Turning back to them, for the first time he flexed the awesome power which had been the prize of the war. As he did so, there was no doubt as to why it had been fought over for so long.


    He extended his hand toward them, and from his palm raged a divine wind. It blew back not their physical bodies, but the impurities in it. It collided with the group at immense force, which could be felt, yet it made no effort to shove they themselves back. Instead, it quite literally banished the injuries from their bodies. What appeared to be a ghost image of each person tore from their back, taking their injuries with it before being scattered to the purging wind. Their cuts, bruises, broken bones, even the scar on Satsujin's face from the injury he'd gotten in his battle with Xero, they were all gone. "You have all done well. Each and every one of you played an enormous part in overcoming the agents. Light and Darkness can coexist. This ordeal has given proof of that."

    Walking over to them, he stood before Xepphiras. "It is my wish that you will carry on this ideal, even in my absence." He said to her. "I will return to you what has been taken. With it, you will be whole once more." R placed his index finger on her chest, directly above her left breast. A glimmer of light shone from his finger, returning her to her old self. Her heart had been restored to her. "Sapphire. I must take my leave. If a perfect world where light and darkness can truly coexist, it seems unfitting for hands so stained with blood to reside in it, let alone claim to be it's ruler. Your purity is your greatest strength. You will make a fine leader. I have faith in you."

    Xepphiras just watched as R walked away, and just watched as the great force of wind came flying at everyone. Xepphiras was not particularly injured in the fight so the healing she didn't feel particularly necessary. Although that thought changed as she felt something change. Xepphiras reached behind her and ran her finger tips along her back. Not a bump on there, not a scratch or raised skin from her scars. There was nothing not one single bump. It was something surprising to Xepphiras but pleasant. She had been convinced that the reminders of that time, the darkest moment in her life would always be there, haunting her, creating more hate, more darkness, but now they where gone.

    Xepphiras didn't know what to say when R approached her, she was at a complete loss of words. Her wounds where completely healed by the great power held within R, she felt unworthy to even stand in his presence. He spoke of her carrying on his ideal in his absence. What did he mean absence? He then talked of making her whole once more, and with the comment he placed his figure on her chest. Something changed in Xepphiras as he did this. Slowly emotions started trickling in before a flood came crashing down. Sapphire was soon sobbing. The whole thing was overwhelming. All at once she felt relief that the battles where over, even happiness, but also an overwhelming sorrow thinking of the loss of her sister. On top of it all she felt an emotion that was strange to her, one that she never experienced even as a somebody before. She felt immense love for R, he was not just her mentor, no he was so much more to her and she never realized it.
    "R.... Please, please don't live me. I-I think I love you. Please.... I can't live without you!" She cried as she hugged him. "I don't know how to lead, I have never had to lead anyone. Why me? Please. Don't leave me to do this alone." The young girls sobs died down slightly as she just hugged R. She didn't want to let him go in fear of him leaving her. "Please...."

    The rocky earth was just as Karina remembered it from all those years before. Where Karina dismounted her glider was some ways outside of the town, just past the forest she remembered training in as a kid, out of the sight of her father. Karina planted her keyblade in the ground ready to walk away from it once and for all, her fight was finally over. There was no more fights to be had, no more wars to be fought, and no more lives to be saved. On the flight over she could feel the threatening sense of the agents disappear, the worlds would now be safe. Her however, she was no longer safe, not when stepping foot on this soil. Her heart pounded in her chest so hard that she couldn't hear anything besides it. This being said, there wasn't much else to hear, the trees rustled in the wind not far from where she stood but she couldn't notice. Her feet where like lead as she dragged them along the rocky ground.

    As she entered the forest that stood near by Karina observed every mark, every dent in every tree caused by her own training. About half way through the forest Karina came across a tree larger than the rest. This one had no marks from her training, it sat perfect in the middle. Glancing at the lowest branch she the only one that could be reached from the ground. This tree was her favourite climbing tree, where she always liked to take her breaks when training. Although Karina knew where she had to go, she felt the need to stop and climb. Branch by branch she started to climb until the point that as a child she feared climbing any higher. There Karina settled, resting her back against the trunk of the tree. On the branch right next to her left leg was the only making she ever mad on the tree, Karina the greatest warrior, was all it said. It was a reminder to herself of what she was training to be. What she wanted out of her life. A reminder that a house wife and a servant girl to her father was not the only thing that she was meant to do. And in the end she did prove it, just not to those she wanted to, but at the very least she proved it to herself. She was a great warrior and earned the keyblade that she had wielded for so long.

    It was some time before Karina found the courage to climb out of the tree and keep going. Karina was strong but no amount of mental preparation would make what she was about to do any easier or less scary. Step by step she came closer to the town, closer to the end. It wasn't long before she stepped out onto the streets of Black Creek which where filled with bustling men and woman alike trying to get things done. Looking around everything was how she remembered it, not much had changed since she left, but this wasn't surprising, not much had changed there in the last fifty years or so. The town was small and it didn't take long for Karina to reach the center of it. Town square, a place where various shops bordered the edge and a beautiful fountain sat in the center. Karina took one last deep breath before stepping up onto the ledge and beginning to speak.

    "Many of you may not recognize me, but most will know who I am. My name is Karina Saboth, daughter of General Saboth. I ran away from this town at age seventeen because I wanted to be a great warrior, but now I return home to pay the price for my actions. Before I do however I wanted, no needed to show you what I could become. What it is possible to do when your options are not limited. I have fought in many wars and helped save the worlds more than once. I became stronger, and built my own identity. I don't expect any of you to believe me, but at the very least see the strength I have to stand here today knowing my fate, strength I never had living here as a child." The crowd around Karina shifted with angry mumbles, people not liking or supporting the idea of leaving the world to get stronger, especially when it was a girl. Karina looked out across the crowd and found a familiar face come to join, her father. "My actions are not deemed acceptable here and I will take my punishment, pay the price for my actions, I can no longer run from it. So let he who I wronged most throw the first stone. At last I surrender to the will of the people and accept the culture I grew up in." Karina finished as she watched her father pick up a stone. It make contact with her cheek, instantly swelling it, but Karina forced herself to stay still, hands folded behind her back. The next to pick up a stone Karina hardly recognized at first, but soon realized to be the man she was betrothed to and rejected all those years back. He had grown into quite the handsome man, Karina was almost surprised. His stone hit her ribs, cracking at least one. That is when the rest of the crowd started to join in. One after another rocks hit her, one landing smack in her eye causing blood drip down her already swollen cheek. Up until that point she prevented herself from guarding and blocking the hits but with that last one she couldn't help but cover her eye with her hands.
    Rock after rock was thrown and soon enough Karina was on the ground her vision fading. Karina's blurry vision was able to make out one form approach her. Her father came closer and was talking to someone.

    "How did you convince her to come back, either way I am proud of you son. You are shaping up to be a fine man worthy of my title."
    "I didn't actually convince her. I was going to force her to come back if she didn't die during the war, but she disappeared part way through. She came here on her own will. I wouldn't be able to tell you why..." Eric looked at the bleeding girl on the ground in pain. "Sorry sis..." He said as he lifted a particularly large stone and aimed it for her head.

    So that was the last thing that Karina heard. Her brother never came looking for her because he missed her, he went looking for her to take her home for her punishment. Not only that but he was the one preparing to deal the final blow. Karina let her swollen eyes finally rest preparing for the final pain to come but she knew that following that would be the rest and peace she longed for for so long and the one she had been taken away from by the boy that she claimed to love at one point.

    Gexln watched Xero's body in awe as the healing took place. He hadn't even thought of what the power of kingdom hearts could actually do, but now that he saw it..it was really impressive. As the energy went into Xero, he felt it enter his own body too, healing all his wounds. He hadn't had any severe injuries sustained in the fight against The Agents, but the scar he had kept since the battle against Xindai was gone. He almost missed that scar, it was a constant reminder of how much Xero meant to him, but he could live without it. The vanishing of the scar was completely gone from his mind a few seconds after he had been completely healed, as his feet began propelling him over to Xero's side.

    He practically slid over to her from the sheer speed the Nobody was running at, now kneeling next to her body. He lifted her up gently, unsure of exactly how well the recovery had worked on her. "Come on Xero, wake up" he said, his voice as gentle as he could make it. He simply held her there for a moment, making sure she was alright, before he finally saw her breathing start to pick up, which brought a smile to the male's face. Without even thinking, he pulled her close to her and embraced her in a hug, thankful she was okay. "Never do that again. You scared the hell out of me, the thought of continuing on without you..it's one that frightens me to death. I'd rather fight a thousand Agents than go through that again" he said simply, his voice practically a whisper due to the amount of emotion inside of him at that moment.

    After waiting just a moment, enjoying the moment of true and utter peace they had worked so hard for, Gexln slowly let go of Xero and stood up, holding out his hand and helping her stand up. He then stepped a little closer to the others and stopped in front of Kross, Ananta and Anta. "Ananta, Kross, you two are just as frustrating as you used to be. There have been times I've wanted to outright murder you for the smallest of things. That being said, thanks for helping out" he said simply, not really knowing Anta so having nothing to say to him. He then walked over to the horde of Beuces. "This world is going to be infuriating with all of you guys here. One Beuce is enough of a pain in my ass as it is, let alone as many as there are" he said, a slight laugh at the end of that statement, before reaching out and playfully hitting the LVD Beuce on the arm. "If I had to pick one smartass to help save the world, it would have been you without a doubt. Looks like you've got half a brain after all, who knew?" he asked, half joking around with him.

    It was then that he decided to address Kel. Kel, one of the few people he had thought of as a friend in the times of SOS. "Didn't think I'd forget you, did you? You were one of the few tolerable people in SOS, helping me out back then, and here you are again. Thanks, Kel" he said, totally not forgetting to include Kel in this post.

    Walking over to Caleb and Juliet, he decided he needed to say something to them. "Caleb, I'm not ever going to forgive you for killing Kaxar, and don't think for a moment that we're even close to being friends, but thank you. You might be an *******, but at least you're a useful one" he said. Looking at Juliet, he opened his mouth to speak once more. God this was taking forever. "I'm sorry I couldn't be a good father for you, and I'm sorry for all the bad things that have happened because of me. You're not some little girl that needs her father anymore though, you're strong enough to make your own decisions. The fight with Chaos proved that you're plenty strong enough to take care of yourself" he said.

    He turned and stopped in front of R and Sapphire. "Sapphire, you might be horrible when it comes to fighting, but you're going to make this peace we fought for a much better place. R knows it, I believe it, and pretty sure everyone else can see it too, so quit doubting yourself so much. You're going to have the strongest power to ever exist in a few moments, wouldn't want you to accidentally destroy yourself with your insecurities would we?" he teased.

    Finally, his gaze met R's. "So, you're going to give her this power, then leave? Just like that? Geez, things are going to be different without you. Who would've thought that one of the guys I tried to murder would end up becoming one of my best friends? We've been through a hell of a lot, all of us, and if it wasn't for you we would've fallen apart. I'm gonna miss ya, but take care. I promise not to pee on you when you're a planet again" he said, making a joke deliberately at the end of that.

    As Gexln turned to walk away, he realized he had something to say to Xero. Walking over to her, he stopped in front of her. "I can't even tell you how important to me you've become, Xero. If it weren't for you, I would've just lost it a long time ago, I probably wouldn't have been able to pull through against Chaos back there. You're a big reason that all this was possible, and I hope you know that. Look, i'm terrible with my words..really, I am" Gexln said, blushing the tiniest bit. He opened a dark corridor in front of them. "I'm a Nobody of the Dark, and that comes with some serious issues. I'm a murderer, an outright *******, and all round not an amazing guy, but I promise you I can change. I've got no idea what the future holds, all I know is that I'd be thrilled beyond belief if you were in it" he said, stepping through the dark corridor. Where it lead to, nobody else knew, but one thing that could be noted about him was that he left that group that had become important to him with a smile on his face.


    Glen was sitting on a snow-covered rock, next to his friend Kara. They had both been sitting there for several minutes now, in complete silence, simply enjoying each others' company. For Kara, she was enjoying it because of the fact it was Glen, someone whom she had become very, very close to. For Glen, it was both because of the fact it was with Kara, and also because it was the last opportunity he would get to spend time with her.

    It was he who decided to break the silence first. Turning to look at her, he found a lump in his throat that prevented words from escaping. He had rehearsed this particular conversation countless times, had considered just about every response she could prepare for him, and had not struggled with it at any point. However, now that the time had actually come to go through with it, the words simply were not coming.

    "Kara, I've been thinking a lot lately" Glen spoke, finally finding the ability to speak once more. "Well, that's a first" the girl responded, her mouth curving into a bright, warm smile that made the cold winds not noticeable. How was he supposed to continue, knowing full well that smile wouldn't last? He had promised himself not to upset her, not to hurt her, but if he kept going...well, there was no doubt at all that Kara wouldn't take it well.

    "Seriously though..do you remember the day I moved to this village?" he asked, doing his best to keep the conversation flowing. His friend nodded, not sure where Glen was going with that conversation. "You asked me where I'd come from. You were the only one then, you know. Nobody else even tried to get to know me. To them, I was just this new guy, no point talking to him. But not you, you were willing to give me a chance. Despite that, I couldn't tell you. I couldn't answer your questions, and I had to keep secrets from you" the male spoke.

    "See, I was once part of a group of people. A group of friends, in a way. This world and all the others out there, they're all plagued with darkness. It's always trying to break everyone down, and strike people when they're at their most vulnerable. To take their hearts, and leave them nothing but an empty shell" he continued. The response he heard was a short gasp from Kara, but he had to keep going.

    "I fought against it. Day after day, night after night, I had to keep going. To keep fighting it back. I could go on for months about the adventures we had, the things I did, but I won't. The whole time, I was a fairly happy person. But as time went on, I started feeling more and more unsure about myself. Doubting myself each passing day. I put it down to pure depression, and I suppose it was. Thing is...my heart wasn't just suffering from depression. Whether or not I realized it at the time, I'd opened my heart to darkness, and it seeped inside and made it its home" Glen said, now hanging his head in shame.

    "When I got back, I tried for a fresh start. I moved to a new town, to this one, expecting nobody to give a crap, planning to give up completely. And then you came. You, with your forgiving eyes and beautiful nature. You were the most beautiful girl I've ever laid eyes on, you still are, and thanks to you I found the strength to fight back. I can't do it alone though, I never could. It kept growing stronger and stronger. Even now, I can hear it in the back of my mind, telling me to give up. That I can't win. That the longer I fight it, the worse it will be for me when I eventually lose. And the thing that scares me, is it's right. I can't beat it, I can't stop it, and I..I don't know how long I can hold it off anymore" came the man's voice, full of both shame and sorrow.

    What came next was a shock. His left hand was suddenly very warm. He felt the familiar clasp of Kara's hand, holding onto his tightly and squeezing, comforting him. For a brief moment, everything he had just said was forgotten. For a brief moment, he was ready to turn back and head back to The Village with Kara and put it all behind him. Then that moment was over, and fear set in once more. Letting go of her hand, he stood up and took a step back away from her.

    "If you'd seen what I've seen, you wouldn't be near me. I have seen darkness take people completely. The kindest person can turn into a monstrous nightmare. The kind of thing the other villagers fear. When it takes me, I won't be able to control myself. Everyone around me will be in danger. Everyone. I..I won't put you in that kind of danger, Kara! I'm not going to let someone else die because of me, not someone I care about! Tomorrow night, tomorrow evening I'm going to leave. I'll take my things and go somewhere else, where I'll let it take me completely. Please understand, I can't take you with me. I have to go alone" he said.

    Once again, he felt Kara's hand grab his. "Glen, look at me" she ordered. Relucantly, he did. He saw it in her eyes; she didn't understand. Kara was beautiful, she was intelligent, and she could get along with just about anyone, but one thing she could never do was understand the darkness. Nobody could, not unless they went through the same things he had been through.

    "If you're going to leave because you.." she continued, tears welling up in her eyes, "because you don't care about me anymore, I-" she started. Glen was the first to break, tears silently flowing down his cheek as he raised his right hand and rested it gently on Kara's cheek, wiping away the tears that were now flowing. "Kara, you know I care about you. I always have, I always will. From now until the day I die, there won't be a day that you won't be in my heart" Glen said, reassuring her. As if to feel that his words were true, Kara placed her hand against his chest.

    "But this isn't about me caring or not. It's about you surviving. I want you to live a long and happy life. Me leaving might hurt you, it might make you struggle to see how happiness can exist in the world, but you'll overcome it eventually. You'll find somebody else, someone better than me. I'm sorry Kara, but this is best for both of us" Glen stated, his voice cracking a little bit under the sheer emotional pressure he was in. Pushing away from the one person he trusted more than anything, he turned and began walking towards the village.

    "Glen! Glen don't leave! We can beat it together! I'm not going to find anybody else, because I don't want to! I'll come after you, Glen. I'll help you beat the darkness and I won't stop until we do! I'm not going to abandon you!" Kara called. Each word reached Glen and only made each step harder and harder to take, but he did not stop. He couldn't stop, not if he truly cared. The next day, he planned to leave as he had told Kara. He planned to, but he never got the opportunity, because at around 3am the next day, is the day that Glen finally lost his battle with darkness, and he, Kara, and the entire village suffered because of it.
    Five years after the defeat of Chaos and Omega...

    Gexln stood there for a moment, not bothering to wipe away the tear that had decided to show itself on the Nobody of the Dark's face. He was standing at the grave of Kaxar, and had been there for about an hour. He had come there every year on the same day for the last five years. There was something he had to do. He had said goodbye to Kara on that day, but he had never truly moved on as he had said he would.

    Looking down at his left hand, he saw and felt the familiar handle of Darkness' Sorrow, the first weapon he had ever wielded as a Nobody. It had served him well, and it was as much a part of him as Kaxar had been. Which is why it had to stay there. Lifting it up, he turned it so that the blade was pointing down towards the ground, and stabbed it deep into the ground, so that it was simply sticking up.

    He then switched his gaze to his right hand. In it was the trinket Kara had made him, long, long ago. It was very special to him, and he wanted it to remain with the one that had been equally, if not more, special to him. Hanging it very carefully, loosely over the handle of Darkness' Sorrow, he took a step back and looked at the scene before him.

    With Xero by his side, and his son, Lucifer now growing up, he was finally ready to move on. To let go of his past, and focus on his future. Of course, he would take care of Juliet too, as any father would, but he would have to make more of an effort to be a better father to Lucifer, to ensure he had the upbringing that he deserved, and that Juliet had never had the opportunity to have.

    Turning away, Gexln began walking away from the grave. He was leaving behind everything about the past Gexln, about Glen, and moving on. He had well and truly kept his promise that he had made to Kara. Glen had remembered Kara every day, never forgetting her and always caring about her, but now Glen was dead; the true Nobody of the Dark had awoken.

    Darkness' Sorrow would stay there for some time. Never moving, waiting as though it was waiting for the day that its wielder would once again need it. If, for some reason, someone were to look at the site, they would see four things there. They would see the grave of a truly remarkable woman, the present she had given her lost hero, the blade the hero had used to save the worlds with, and lastly, a soft, warm, green scarf that flowed in the breeze, the final touch that truly confirmed that all of the hero's memories had been left exactly where they belonged; in the past.

    R gave a small smile as the girl hugged him and begged him not to leave. He didn't seem at all surprised when she said that she loved him. He had been inside her heart, he knew what she felt. He had simply waited for her to realize it herself. He simply put his hand on her head and stroked her hair. "You needn't despair, Sapphire. We will meet again. You will not be alone. I have faith that you will be able to rule this new world. You too must have faith in yourself." Said R, attempting to encourage her.


    "I will never forsake you. I will always be there to watch over you. However, there will come a time when you no longer need my guidance. You have grown immeasurably during your journey. If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together... there is something you must always remember. you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we're apart... I'll always be with you." With those final words, he took her hand and placed the X-blade in it. With it, he transferred into her the power of kingdom hearts. The power to rule all of creation, for he knew she would use it wisely. He would not be the one to bring about balance, it would be her. With her rule, it would mark the end of the conflict between light and dark. She would prove that nothing was never ending.

    He turned away from her. It was time he took his leave. He had spent long enough walking among them as a human. His part was done. Finally, he was ready to return to his true form. As he walked forward, a figure leaned against a wall of rock, smiling as R approached him. "I..." He said. The blonde man walked over to him, and placed a hand on his shoulder. The two gave a nod, telling each other they were ready. "Ah, that's right. I don't believe i ever properly introduced myself. R is only the part of me you've seen up until now." With a bright light enveloping them, their bodies disappeared into two glowing orbs golden orbs and shot into the sky.

    From all around the worlds, if you looked up, you'd see a small light glimmer into existence. There are many worlds, but they share the same sky. The sky greeted the new star which was born in it. No...It was more like it was greeting an old friend, who had returned home after a long journey. R was now where he belonged once more.

    "My name is....Riel."

    While still floating in the dark abyss she has been in, a bright light suddenly cut through the darkness. Xero slowly reached out for it and soon she was engulfed in it. It was warm and it felt calming; washing her fears away as she closed her eyes, basking in the warmth of the light. Her consciousness had soon returned and her breathing had finally seemed to become normal instead of small quiet gasps.

    Xero’s eyes slowly fluttered open to see Gexln holding her with a look of relief. “Gexln..?” She said; her voice was raspy as she spoke. Gexln had suddenly embraced her, and Xero looked a bit surprised as he did, “Never do that again. You scared the hell out of me, the thought of continuing on without you… it’s one that frightens me to death. I’d rather fight a thousand Agents than go through that again.” Xero only sat there not sure what to say, she only tightly returned the hug.

    As Gexln helped her up Xero began looking at her body. There was no gash in her side or no burn marks from the last attack. Wait… Chaos! Xero began to look around, but only to see that everything had gone back to normal. They won. The war was finally over. Xero let out a sigh of relief as she smiled to herself then turned toward the group of people.

    Xero’s eyes landed on R and Sapphire and walked over to them. Her eyes met with R’s and she looked down rather sad, “I guess… this is goodbye.” She said as she looked back up at him with tears beginning to form in her eyes, “Maybe… we’ll see each other again one day, and maybe this time I won’t eavesdrop on you when we get reunited again.” Xero made a small laugh as she spoke. She then hugged R before turning to Sapphire and putting a hand on her shoulder, “I’m sure you’ll make a good leader. You just need to believe in yourself a little more.” She gave her a smile and then noticed Gexln walking over to her.

    As Gexln spoke to her she began to blush a bit. He then opened a dark corridor and walked through with a small smile on his face. She looked back at R, only to give him a nod before smiling and walking through the corridor herself. Once through she began to run over to Gexln, tightly wrapping her arms around him and gripping the fabric of his shirt as she did.

    They stayed like that for a good minute before Xero looked up at Gexln and finally spoke, “While I was unconscious I thought I was dying, or already dead. I was scared… everything was dark and I was just floating in an abyss. But then when I finally woke up and saw you, I felt safe. I felt like I couldn’t be touched.” She looked down for a moment and hugged Gexln once more, “I love you…” She muttered those words as she buried her face in his chest.

    Xero was lying next to Lucifer, who had been born two months ago. He was sleeping soundly and Xero could only give him a gentle smile every time she looked at him. She just simply liked watching her son exist, watching him breathe, watching him sleep, watching him laugh. She often thought that she was afraid of not being a good mother, but Gexln would reassure her. She could finally say that she was actually happy. No more fearing for her life or fearing about her body being taken over. Ever since the war was won, everything was normal and no one she ran into tried to kill her. And since R had gone back to being a part of the world Riel, Sapphire had let them live there. She gave them a home and they owed her greatly for that.

    Unlike most, who showed great elation and even joy at the prospect of defeating the agents, Kross was indifferent. His expression was blank of emotion. He gave a sigh and turned."Tough battle, anticlimatic ending. SHould have known."He said. Glen approached him and he rose a brow at the guy's words."Right..I have no idea what you're talking about dude.."He said with a playful grin."But I'll take it just this once, Mr Compliment guy."He said. He turned from them, but then looked at Ananta."Remember that promise I made to you when we were on Crystallis?"He asked her."What say I carry out that promise in full?"He said. After all, Kross was a man of his word. His normal form returned, but it didn't mean he would be any different towards his friends. He knew he would be dead eventually and forgotten, but making his mark in history like this..alongside his friends no..his family was worth it.

    Crystallis was different from Pepper Island in various ways, future future future. Kross would never get used to his new home, even when five long years have passed. "Daddy!" came a voice from beside him. He looked up. seeing the little girl run downstairs. Her navy blue hair bouncing as she went down. Once she got to the bottom, she ran to Kross and he caught her mid stride, spinning her around and gently grinned."Well you're energetic, Bleu. What's got you so elated that you had to come down to see your dad?" Bleu giggles and poked Kross's cheek. "You know full well what I am excited about, Mommy told me!" Kross seemed surprised, but then again, Bleu was his and Ananta's daughter, of course she would have his smarts.

    "You know what..I did think of a perfect name for him too.." Kross trailed off and set his little girl on his shoulder.

    "What name is that, daddy?"

    "Well, dear...I was thinking of Antross.." He said, then grinned, bet even Beuce didn't even see that coming, take THAT fourth-wall breaker!

    Ananta watched R step back. As the strong winds blew over them, she knelt down to keep Anta from blowing away. When the winds stopped, she heard his breathing deepen and felt his body getting warmer and warmer. Looking up, she saw his crystal began to shine once again. Tears poured from her eyes in happiness. Anta was going to be fine, although he was going to need some time before he woke back up, he'd be fine. Standing up, Ananta looked at Gexln and Xero as they had their happy exchange. It was then that Gexln approached her and Kross, telling them thank you for helping. Ananta nodded at him, turning to Kross.

    Kross then mentioned the promise he had previously made on Crystallis. "I'd be happy for that, Kross." she said, smiling at him. Looking around, she looked to see if anybody was looking before she grabbed Kross by the cheeks and gave him a kiss. Pulling from the kiss, she smiled. "Let's get home with Anta. He'll be happy to know the fight is over. We can finally rest..." she sighed, hugging onto Kross. Behind her, Anta was sleeping soundly now. He was having dreams of many things, but one thing was for certain, he would be happy to know the whole war was over.


    Anta woke up in his bed and groggily started walking. He stopped at the crib that sat at the end of his bed and looked down to see a crying infant inside. Lifting the child up, he nuzzled the baby girl with dark green hair, humming a tune to try and calm her down. "I bet you're hungry, huh...?" he asked her, looking up at his bed. His wife, Amelia, was not there. Blinking slowly, he realized that it was 3pm. Of course she wasn't here. She was off practicing for a big concert. Being the lead guitarist, she had to practice a lot with her band members. Sighing to himself, he turned around and walked out of his bedroom.

    He slowly made his way downstairs and turned towards the kitchen. Inside was his step-father Kross, throwing spices and other things onto lunch. "Hey..." he groggily said to Kross as he opened the fridge and pulled out a bottle of milk Amelia had prepared for their baby, Mia, that morning. Placing the bottle in Mia's mouth he began walking out of the kitchen. As he left, he heard Kross say good afternoon or something. He didn't really care, seeing as he never agreed to adopting Kross as his step-father.

    Ananta walked through the front door in time to see Anta walking out of the kitchen with Mia. "Good afternoon, dear." she said to him. He greeted her with a grunt as he walked towards the living room. Chuckling, she moved out of the way of the door to see Bleu carrying the groceries in her hands. Kross needed a few ingredients before he could finish making lunch, or even start on dinner, so Ananta volunteered to go to the store for him. She may be 6 months pregnant, but she wasn't going to let that stop her from going to the store. "Come on, Bleu, we need to take those to your daddy so he can finish lunch." she smiled, shutting the front door.

    As they walked into the kitchen, Kross turned around and quickly pulled a chair out for Ananta. She shook her head and instead kissed his cheek. "It's alright, dear, I was going to head into the living room and sit in my favorite chair. Besides, Bleu wanted to hear THAT story again." she chuckled. Kross nodded, blushing deeply from the kiss, and took the groceries from Bleu. Taking Bleu's hand, Ananta was lead into the living room. Sitting down in the biggest, comfiest chair, Ananta sighed in relief. Folding her hands on her protruding belly, she closed her eyes and faked going to sleep.

    "Mommy! You promised!" she heard Bleu, feeling a tug at her arm. Opening her eyes, she looked to her left to see Bleu nearly crying. "Oh sweetie, don't cry. I didn't forget." she frowned, patting Bleu's beautiful, navy blue hair. "So, you want to hear about daddy and mommy's journey to save all the world's? Well, it all began one afternoon..." she started, recounting the tales of SOS and LVD.

    The battle against the agents had come to an end and with there not being much casualties, aside from those who Kel weren't all to certain had even left in the first place, things seemed to have a pretty good outcome. While Karina was missing as well, he had a gut feeling that he knew where she was at. On that note there was still something that he had to do, so he walked over towards Eric and tossed the recorder that Karina had given him to him. "Consider it a gift from your stubborn sister. Her husband isn't anywhere to be seen so that leaves you as the next person who deserves to hear this."

    That took care of the last thing that he was obligated to do which meant that it was time for him to head back home. First thing that he probably should do was to say his farewells to everyone. Glen was the first person purely because he'd approached him first. "I could say the same about you. Despite how apathetic I was 90% of the time back then, there were plenty of things that annoyed me. Most of the people here that I know I can say didn't." While he could've ended it with that since that did cover a lot of people that were still here, he decided to continue.

    Next up came Kross and Ananta, who apparently were a thing now. "Well Kross, you'll probably have better luck with her than you did with Anora so long as you don't screw anything up. As for you Ananta, I got nothing else to say." Yes she was one of the people that didn't annoy him, but that was already said earlier and there was no point in repeating himself.

    Finally came Sapphire, R and Xero otherwise known and the group of people that he didn't know in the slightest. Yes there were plenty more people that he could include in that group, but whatever. "I barely know you guys, but your still better than some of the people than I've worked with in the past." It was short, but it was the truth nonetheless. After that R had vanished revealing his true name, Riel, and leaving Sapphire with some power. That didn't seemed like such a good idea to give all that power to one person, especially considering how frail she looked, but out of everyone else here she probably was the better choice so he left it alone.

    His goodbyes were said and thus he gave them all a quick wave before summoning forth his glider and flew off to his home.

    Quite some time had passed since the battle with the agents and Kel was currently standing in the hospital back on Solucia. He wasn't waited for anyone to be born, that had already happened earlier. What he was doing was visiting a friend of his who'd gotten injured in the past war. Considering his circumstances surrounding his injury he was quite lucky to be alive, which was good. Kel didn't want to have to go through losing another person close to him. His wait lasted for a few more minutes before he was finally able to go visit his friend.

    The room had been kept in good condition, much like the current status of his friend's, Graver, condition. A vast majority of his body was bandaged up including his left eye. "Its one hell of a miracle that you survived." Graver wouldn't be able to respond due to the medications that they had him own, but that didn't mean that he couldn't listen to what Kel had to say. "I wonder if this makes us even for when I got injured saving your ass. If it does you picked a real shitty time to try and pay me back."

    A light chuckle sounded from his mouth as his hand touched where the newfound scar on his cheek was. It served as one his the better mementos that he'd gotten. He stood there in silence for a few more minutes before turning towards the door saying, "I'll see you another time." and walking out the door. Kel wouldn't hear nor see it, but as he left a smile appeared on Graver's face as he spoke, something he hadn't done for a few days.
    "Idiot."

    Now back at the entrance of the hospital, he donned on his fathers hat before walking towards his next destination. This would be a more dark part of his trip as he entered the cemetery. Specifically speaking a more private part of the cemetery. This particular area had only one grave and engraved was the name Vergil Siegend, Kel's father. He was the first casualty that had happened and had not only lead Kel to replacing him as the leader of the central army, but his also declaration of war. "I know if you were still here you'd tell me not to blame myself for what happened to you and I won't. Still won't change how I'll always regret my inability to prevent your death."

    He stood there both mourning and reminiscing about his father until he heard someone call out to him. While he was distracted, two more people had walked up behind him so when he turned around he was greeted by the smiling faces of his wife, Rune and his daughter, Elise. Kel smirked a bit before turning back to the gravestone. "Though I suppose even in death you left me with one good piece of advice and I'll be sure to treasure it." As he finished saying his goodbye to his father, he turned towards his family and left the graveyard with them. Hopefully nothing like this would ever happen again and he would be able to live the rest of his life in peace, but only time could tell.

    Following the events with the agents, Kel had used his wish that he'd gotten from Genie and had done nothing with for the longest time to go back in time to the point where everything had differed from the other Kel. He stood in front of the cause of everything and battled it again, this time winning, resulting in his time line merging with the original Kel's, causing this Kel to fade away from existence with a smile on his face. Least he would be erased knowing that he atoned.

    Juliet stood silently as people began parting ways, making no sound except for a silent gasp of shock as R revealed his true name to everyone, before returning to his true form once more. Surprisingly, part of the girl was sad to see him go. She had never really talked to R, and she didn't know him particularly well, but there was no doubt it was because of him that they had been able to defeat The Agents. Against all odds, R had succeeded in doing something that nobody else had ever done; he had truly united the forces of light and darkness. It was he who had brought the group together in a time when they couldn't be further apart, it was he who had discovered the method of defeating them, and it was he who had spearheaded the attack against The Agents in an effort to save everything they knew.

    Juliet herself didn't know many people there, and she hadn't had much interaction with most of them at all, but she still couldn't help but dislike the fact that they were all parting ways. They had banded together and fought alongside each other, they had relied on one another, and now it was time they left. "Thank you, Riel" the girl said quietly, looking up at the star that had just appeared in the sky. Still lost in thought, her attention was brought back as she felt a short tap on her shoulder.

    Caleb, too, had not said a word as everyone said goodbye and left. It wasn't his place to. While he knew every person there to an extent, the boy had never really viewed any of them as friends, with the exception of Satsujin. However, even then he doubted Satsujin was the kind of person to give a long speech about the importance of friendship before leaving, and it was an even smaller chance that he liked saying goodbye in the slightest, and neither did Caleb, so he remained in place, simply thinking.


    There were times he was ready to throw in the towel, and yet he hadn't. He had pushed on, using those close to him as motivation. There was no way of telling how things would have ended up had he not attempted to stop R that day, and he didn't want to think about it, either. Despite everything, Caleb was going to miss Riel, and his parting words got Caleb thinking. R didn't think he deserved to be in the new era that they had brought about because of his past actions, but surely saving the world was more than enough of a repayment, wasn't it?

    He thought next of Xindai, unfortunately. The man had been truly evil and cruel in every sense of the word, but he had done the world a great service; he had united them all. However, despite things turning out for the better, there was no doubt in his mind that he hadn't intended them to be like that. Had things been different, they probably wouldn't be standing there, let alone being able to celebrate or be happy. There would more than likely be others like Xindai, others that would wish ill for the world, and Caleb would be there. The others could be happy and forget it all they liked, but not Caleb Stitem, he would take on the role of protector. He turned around and faced Juliet, before tapping her on the shoulder to get her attention.

    "Hmmm? What do you want?"
    "You know how to make a dark corridor, right?"
    "I guess so, why?"

    "Make one now, and seal me inside"

    Juliet was shocked. She hadn't expected that kind of request from anyone, let alone from Caleb. What was she supposed to say to that?
    "...why?"
    "There are going to be people that try to screw over this peace we fought for, and I'm going to be there to stop them"

    The two continued this conversation for many minutes, with Caleb constantly asking and Juliet constantly refusing, sometimes one would raise their voice only to have the other one calmly respond, but eventually they did reach a conclusion. It was decided that Juliet would make the corridor for Caleb, and seal him inside on the off chance anyone ever did something to threaten all that they had struggled to achieve, but he wouldn't be alone. Juliet would go in with him. They decided that she had to go with him, since he couldn't let himself out, and she would check once a year to see how things were outside of the realm of darkness, and make a decision on whether or not it was time for them to leave. There they would remain, until such time as they were needed, forever protectors of the realm of light.

    "To my dear family. Seeing all your faces once again was a blessing, but not one I was meant to have. I was never meant to walk in this world again, I was never meant to fight this war. That being said I am not going to simply walk away before the war is fought. By the time you hear this message I will already be dead. I am leaving during the war and returning home. I am sick of living in fear of my father. I am sick of hiding. I can't help but have the feeling that me being brought back to life was giving me an opportunity to actually be strong and face my past, not run from it any longer. I have lived my life in this world and walked my own path. I need to pay the price for walking my own path. However I will tell you one thing, I don't regret it. If there was one thing I wished I could do when I was young it would have been to see Eric again,but seeing him now it seems he was better off without having to protect me all the time. I am grateful for what you have all done for me, Eric, Eon, and my children. I am sorry I couldn't be there for you. But I don't belong on this earth any longer. Don't wallow in sorrow over losing me... You really haven't lost anything. Keep going with your life and never..." "Brooding in- click" The recorder fell silent. as the track ended. There was a few other tracks on the recorder but Eric couldn't bring himself to listen to them. She had gone back... she decided to go back home on her own accord. The idea was painful, he knew he was sent to take her home but if she went by herself he couldn't imagine what his father might have had in store for her without him there to direct him in the least painful path.

    Eric took off on his keyblade glider and soon found himself in Black Creek. The streets where empty but shouts and cries of pain could be heard not far away from where he was. Eric rushed through the streets until he found a large group of people crowded around something on the ground, no not something, his sister. Eric pushed his way through the crowd to is fathers side horrified at the site before him.

    "How did you convince her to come back, either way I am proud of you son. You are shaping up to be a fine man worthy of my title." Eric's father spoke to him as he approached. He trained his features and his tone into a neutral one, not to show is father what he was feeling, how horrified he was of this sight.

    "I didn't actually convince her. I was going to force her to come back if she didn't die during the war, but she disappeared part way through. She came here on her own will. I wouldn't be able to tell you why..." Eric looked at the bleeding girl on the ground in pain. "Sorry sis..." He said as he lifted a particularly large stone and aimed it for her head. Eric brought the stone down with enough force to take her out once and for all. He didn't want her to have to remain sitting there in pain any longer. Eric soon scooped the girl up in his arms. "Since I know that you won't do it, I am going to give her a proper burial, she is still family even if she did betray us... no betray you." Eric's tone was harsh as he turned and walked away from his father. Deep in the woods he decided to lay her in the area she loved training the most, not far from the largest tree in that forest. He set the girl on the ground leaning her against a tree, pressed play on the recorder and started digging.

    The recorder was fuzzy for a moment but when in cleared up a voice of a young girl came on, a seventeen year old girl. Eric couldn't hide the few tears that left his eyes as he listened to his sister speak. She talked about where she was, what she was doing, and how she missed him. It seemed even there her life was hard. She let her temper get the better of her and didn't always get along with the other people, but at least she was free from their father. Some recordings she sounded happy in, but most of them she was sad, possibly in tears.
    "You never where as strong as you tried to make yourself out to be, where you?" Eric asked the girl as he lifted her limp body into the shallow grave he had dug. He placed her recorder in the grave with her then removed his pendant. Their father gave it to him when he joined the army as a symbol of pride, and doing what was right for his people, now he was giving this gift to his sister. Someone who deserved it far more whether his father knew it or not.

    It wasn't long before the grave was filled and Eric was left standing there with not much left to do.
    "Sleep well sis. You have earned that right to have peace." Eric then turned and looked into the night sky. "Kel, Eon, thank you for looking out for her." Not only where they the ones that truly showed to him that they cared for her after he had met them, but they where also talked about a fair amount in her recordings. With that said and done Eric returned to his home knowing it was time to return to his life. At least now he could rest knowing what had happened to his sister.

    The roar of the crowd was like thunder, filling the stadium with cheers of joy. One Beuce looked to another, giving an approving smile. This Beuce had smooth black hair and by far the most swag coat ever to grace the presence of anything. This was Elsword Beuce. He was on lead guitar. Lead guitar, you ask? Why, for the band Schizo of course! They were playing Riel's capital city, and everyone was there! All their friends in the front row! Wow they really changed to go to a concert. Like, seriously. They cut their hair. And got plastic surgery...And Sapphire got a gender change. Like, wow. She didn't need to go that far for it. In fact, literally the only thing that implied it was them was the fact they each had a T-shirt with their name on it. He thought back to when he had given them the tickets. They'd almost seemed like they didn't want to come.
    "Hey guys! I know you're strapped for cash right now." Beuce started off as he walked into the room.
    Xero and Gexln gave each other a confused look. They could afford to splurge just about as much as they wanted to. No one was remotely strapped for cash.
    "So, i decided to take the liberty of getting you the tickets to my concert so you don't have to waste your money on them! Front row seats!"
    Xero was the first to speak up.

    "but we don't wan-"
    "Herestheticketskthxbye" Beuce said, shoving the tickets at them and running out the door.
    There was silence for a moment.
    "Think he'll buy it if we just send random people with T-shirts that have our names on it?" Asked Sapphire.
    "Do i transform?"
    Well, it looked like they made it after all! That was great. They were really supportive of the band. True, it had only started because LvD Beuce had completely forgotten how to dismiss the other Beuces back into their own universes and as such they were stuck there. But through the power of reference, they'd devised a way to do it. This band had been a side project for a while, but now, they could return to their own RPs and games. This would be their last show, so, they were going to kick ass! So, they began playing the most intense and face-melting song ever written. So awesome that i can't even tell you what it is for your own safety. Like, if i did, you'd go look it up on youtube and die from your brain not being able to handle the sheer awesome. Then when Schizo played it, it was like a gajillion times more awesome. They made that a real number just to multiply the awesome by that when it was played by Beuce. The ungodly power of the song tore the fourth wall asunder. Chunks of it began to fall around them, crashing down on the stage. But that was nothing new. However, something that was happened. From beyond he fourth wall, a glorious golden light shone out, enveloping them in its glow.

    One Beuce let out a small gasp, the others were simply silent, struck with awe. They all knew what it was, yet had assumed it only a legend, attainable only to gods. "There it is..." Beuce said, breaking the silence. "The fifth wall..." They knew what they had to do. With manly tears welling in their eyes, they all let out a yell of determination as they charged the mythical wall of parody. This was their destiny. Theirs was the reference which would pierce the heavens.

    For the wicked, the shadows on the wall were a thing to be feared. Should your sins begin to overshadow the good you've done, he would come for you. Once, he had fought against Sapphire and the one who taught her. Now, he realized how wrong that was. A life driven by vengeance, hatred, and anger. He'd killed a great many people in his pursuit of vengeance on R. Such a life cannot simply be washed away. But that life was over. Even with his life ended, he remained. So, he was a ghost. Perhaps in this life, he could atone for his previous one. Yes. That was his intention. If the perfect world Sapphire sought to craft in R's place was threatened by the corrupt, he would be the one to end it before it grew into an ugly beast.

    The shadows were his steps, and the night was his road. Few ever even saw him, and those that did never lived to tell the tale. As he served the new goddess in her quest to carry on what R started and make a world free of corruption, he did so from the shadows. Fact became rumor, rumor became myth. Few believed that this assassin, carrying out the will of the goddess truly existed. So, who was this man? He was no one. Just a ghost.

    Not a word could be spoken as R passed the power to Sapphire. Now was not the time for words just gratitude. A silent thanks was seen in Sapphire's eyes as she looked up into R's face. Her eyes that had remained a pale red since she had turned into a nobody now sparkled with a beautiful sapphire blue colour. More tears welled in the corner of her eyes but no sobs where heard from the girl. Despite the situation scaring her to no end she felt a bliss about it. Even though she knew she couldn't physically be with R she believed his words, and knew that no matter what happened he would be with her. He had granted her back her heart and with that they became intertwined, one. No matter what happened to R now he would always be with her.

    R had now long walked away, the name that was spoken as a new light appeared in the sky still rung through her mind. Riel, the one she loved was nothing more than a planet now, although she still knew he had a heart, she still knew he cared about her. Sapphire couldn't stop watching the direction that he had walked off in. Everyone else had already let the keyblade graveyard, a couple said their goodbyes, encouraging words, surprisingly even Gexln encouraged her before he left but still there was something missing. She wouldn't leave the graveyard until she figured it out. It wasn't the kind of missing as in she was unsure and it could be contributed to the lack of confidence or strength she needed to move forward in her life and take up her new position, instead it was more like a loose end that needed tying up. As if he had read her thoughts a hand touched Sapphires shoulder, squeezing it slightly.

    "You know you would be the last person I would expect to rule everything. When we where kids you where also so naive and innocent, never knew the difference of right and wrong, but I guess twelve years does change someone." A familiar voice spoke from behind Sapphire.

    "Not as much as you'd think it would. I don't know how I will do this I just have to trust R I guess." As she finished speaking Sapphire turned to looked at her brother, finally turning away from the direction that R had left. The x-blade was still gripped in her hand tight, but besides that she seemed relaxed. "It seems my path is laid out for me, but what are you going to do now Louvel?" She asked after a moment of silence.

    "Travel, see the world, and eventually find a place to settle down. I trained all my life to wield the keyblade, but now I have played my part in the war and all that is left for me is a normal life... something mom and dad didn't allow me to have just because of my power. If only they could see you now." Louvel chuckled slightly knowing it would have been more of a shock to their parents then it was to him to discover the power that she held.

    "Imagine what they would say when they saw all of us. I don't think they ever expected all three of their kids to be able to use a keyblade...." Sapphires voice became quiet as she finished her comment thinking of Kaya. "Hey..." She spoke up again. "If you ever need a job, or a place to settle down, don't hesitate to let me know, okay? You are welcome to visit any time, after all, you are the only family I have left."

    "Will do. Thanks." Louvel said turning to leave the keyblade graveyard once and for all.

    "Wait...." Sapphire called out once again. "What if Xindai somehow escapes? He is the one thing that I don't know if I can handle. If he gets ahold of my darkness that dwells deep down then..." Sapphire was cut short as Louvel grabbed the wrist of the hand that was not holding the X-blade.

    "He won't. I promise you he won't. We sealed him away for good remember? Don't talk like that." Excalibur was then pressed firmly into Sapphires hand. "I don't care if you use the darkness as a weapon. I don't care if it possesses you. I don't care if you where a nobody. There is a light inside you that will never go out. I swear there is, I can see it. Take this as a reminder. Let it make the light bright when you feel darkness is about to take you, and take it as a reminder of your family. Not just me, but our parents, they where both full of light and you know it too. So please just keep it." With that Louvel a little ways away and planted Oblivion in the ground along with many other keyblades that lay scattered from wars past. He soon disappeared into the horizon leaving Sapphire all by her lonesome.

    Sapphire held Excalibur in her hand and looked at it. The blade had been given to her, but like keyblades it chose it's master and it rejected her. She didn't blame the thing either, she was filled with darkness and this was a weapon of pure light. She couldn't just leave it sitting here though, nor would she take it back to Riel with her when she left. Sapphire didn't know where she would take it but for now she attached it to her belt, let the X-blade dissipate from the ground and started talking the rough terrain of the keyblade graveyard with only one thought in mind.

    It was nearly two hours before Sapphire found her sisters twisted contorted body crushed between some rocks. For the first time since getting the power Sapphire used it even just for a small thing. She used it to assist her in moving the rocks. Soon enough they where out of the way and Sapphire carried her sister in her arms. She opened a portal to another far off world. It was not one she had ever been to before or even knew much about but it was rather beautiful and peaceful. With mountains behind her and ocean in front, she felt as though it was a good resting place her dear sister. Sapphire wasted no time in finding a secluded cave to lay her sister in. With one final goodbye that was whispered under her breath Sapphire sealed the cave and turned to the now setting sun. The ocean sparkled gold with the setting sun. Seeing this world was secluded Sapphire chose to stab Excalibur into the ground here where it wouldn't be found. Even still though she wouldn't take risks. Coating the sword in a layer of rock she pressed it up against the rock face of the mountain, sealing it just below the surface of the rock face but making it appear to be just a carving.
    "I am sorry Louvel, but perhaps your light can find our sister in the after life." The girl spoke as she stared out over the glistening waters.

    It had been seven years since the war, seven years since Sapphire became goddess, and seven years since she last saw the face of either her brother or the man she had come to love. Sapphire lived on Riel, always sensing the presence of R with her as long as she remained on the planet. She knew he was there in some spirit, but even so it became incredibly lonely at times. Sapphire's role as Goddess became harder and harder by the day. She strived to create the perfect world that R had dreamed of. A dream that he had passed on to her, however in order to make that so rules needed set in place and punishments made for those who didn't follow. The punishments where what Sapphire struggled the worst with. Every time she had to do something that would hurt a family, effect a young child, or even punish someone for something small the guilt built up. Every time she had to sentence someone to death she would end up nearly in tears later no matter how bad the crime they committed was. The idea of building a perfect world was both one that brought her great joy and great sorrow.

    The pain kept building on the young goddess, and more and more did she find herself wondering the world of Riel, exploring instead of doing what she should for the world. Sapphire had gained the ability to see anything that was happening anywhere at any given time, so she often would be pay attention and watching for trouble, but it was days like today that she would turn the ability off pretty much, ignore it, ignore the crimes and pains of the world to deal with her ever growing pain. As Sapphire wandered she found an entrance to a cave, one she honestly couldn't say she had seen before. Running her hand along the smooth surface of the rock she entered the darkness not expecting to see what she saw when she entered. R stood in the center of the cave. R... not Riel as the planet but R as the human. Sapphire was at a loss for breath as she saw this, stopping dead in her tracks. Tears welled in her eyes and not a word was spoken, there was nothing to describe how she felt at that moment, no words where good enough. Not now, not ever. It wasn't long before she ran and embraced R in a hug.
    "But how...." Where the only words she could get out but even then they where just a small whisper in the silence of the dark cave in which she stood. Suddenly that despair lightened, as long as she was with R it couldn't touch her.
