28 - SorrowAs we walked home I couldn't look at him.
"Tial, what's the deal with this 'Xion'?" He asked. My heart was breaking what he couldn't remember.
"Xion . Was our friend." I began, "A dear friend. She was close with us. And "
He looked at me, his blue eyes piercing my shield.
My heart was breaking.
"Axel, Xion, you, and I were all very close But I'm the only one who remembers ! How is that even possible?! I can't even begin to think of why that would happen! Why?! Goddammit!" I started off shaky, and then ended up nearly screaming. I fell to the ground in anguish. If only someone could remember besides me !
"Tial, we've been here all our lives, how can you say that we were anywhere else?"
I looked up at him, shocked.
"You You don't remember at all ." I managed as I leaned on the wall for support.
Without warning, I just took off.
This wasn't right.
None of it was.
And it was sending me into despair.
27 - ForeignWhat was this Feeling? What is this? With her in my arms it just
"Tial What happened?" I asked, gently stroking her hair.
"I Demy Axel I-is it really true ? Is he really-?" She was choked up on tears. I never knew that any of this was possible. Tial just pushes the boundaries of being a nobody.
"I As far as we know. There's an investigation going on. Don't worry, Tial, I'm sure he's alright." What a lie. He's probably dead. I know that. But if I can at least get her to calm down
"Dammit Demy You're not lying Are you?" She asked. I quickly shook my head.
"No. Why would I lie to you?"
"Thanks Demy I'm so sorry. I shouldn't be doing this to you." She said as she let go of me and wiped her tears away.
Is that what she'd call 'Love'?
26 - TearsI ran forward, only to be thrown back.
"You bastards! What have you done to my sister?!" I screamed.
"We offered a return to the norm." The Emperor said simply.
"Chiaki! Why are you doing this?! It IS reality now, why is it that you're shunning it so soon?!"
"It's . Hikari . I'm . I'm sorry " She said as she ran away. I could swear that my eyes were red with anger, and my face blue with tears.
"So What are you going to take from me next, eh? What now?! Why do you have to fracture every part of my life?!" I screamed as I made my attacks. He'd disappeared before I got an answer. I fell to the ground, crying.
"Chiaki Why ? Why'd you You do this ?" I held my face in my hands as my body was rocked with sobs.
"Hi- Hikari?! What happened?!" I heard frantic footsteps coming near. I looked up through blurry eyes. Zidane, Bartz, Tidus, and Squall.
"Ch-Chiaki She just She just up and left with them How could Chaos Sound appea
25 - Trouble LurkingI couldn't help but get that feeling that trouble was lurking .
"Maybe I shouldn't be out here today " I said, stopping short.
"Izzy, you're the last person I'd expect to hear that from. Is everything okay?" Noctis asked. I shrugged.
"I've just got a bad feeling. I don't think that I should be out here with you " I said.
"You're trying to avoid trouble?"
"For once, right? It just feels like something big."
"So you actually-"
"Yes, I don't always want to get into trouble, alright?"
I hated it when he did that.
"Noct, let's just get out of here, okay?"
"Okay, but where do we go?"
"I I don't know, let's just-"
"Like I said, trouble seems to find me. I don't go looking for it. I don't need to."
"And I haven't believed you until now C'mon, let's go." He began to pull me towards where the explosion had taken place.
"And I thought you wanted me out of trouble "
"Just come with me. I have a feeling I'm gonna need help."
24 - No TimeI reached out, trying to grab anyone's hand. It was scary. I was running out of time before the bridge would collapse. I was running as fast as I could, hoping that there would be a reprieve at some point. I just ran and ran. I spotted a girl who had fallen. She had short brown hair; it was about the length of mine.
I have no time.
I have no time.
I have no time.
Like I cared now! I ran over to the girl and helped her stand up. I then grabbed her hand and pulled her along with me. It was just a matter of time-
And the bridge did collapse, but not with us on it. I smiled at the girl.
"Hi. I'm Amai, who're you?" I asked.
Then I woke up. I walked out and into the little square of Besaid.
"Oh! Amai, there you are!" Wakka said as I walked up to him and Lulu.
"Hey guys, what's going on?" I asked.
"Look." Lulu said, pointing towards the gate.
My jaw dropped. A Ronso was walking into Besaid with the girl that appeared in my dream. I put on a smile and walked toward them.
"Hi, my name's Amai. W
23 - Cat"Well that's interesting " Yuna said as she looked over my shoulder.
"Yup." Was my response.
"So what're you gonna write about?" Rikku asked.
"I . Have no freaking clue." I said as I continued to type.
"So you're just putting this conversation down?" Yuna asked.
"Yup, why not?"
"What're you doing?" Envy said as he came up behind me and looked at the screen.
"Get out of here you bastard." I said relatively calmly. It's evident that I hate Envy, right?
"Me? Are you serious- OW!" Lucky for me, Ella had punched him. Back through the other side of the house I hope.
"Thanks El," I said with a smile.
"Anytime." She said, stretching, then going back to sleep.
"These conversations can be interesting " Yuna said with an awkward smile.
"Yup, why else would I put one down for this theme?"
22 - Mother NatureAnd we continued to walk through the garden as they played music. I quietly hummed along. Then I thought that I heard something.
"Say, did you guys hear anything?" I asked Yuna and Rikku.
"Huh?" Rikku said in response.
"No, I didn't hear anything, why?" Yuna asked.
"Hm Must've been my imagination then." I said as we continued to walk.
"There was a gust of wind, if that was what you meant " Rikku suggested.
"Nah I meant like a voice."
"Does this world have aeons?" Yuna asked.
"No- er- not that we know of " I hummed, biting my finger nail.
I heard it again.
'Just tell me that someone is listening ..'
"Uh " I turned around. There stood a young girl, a brunette with a green dress with many leaf and flower like details. She had sandals on made from what looked like bamboo fiber.
'Please? Hear me out?'
"So Yunie, I think that I just found out But Mother Nature? A Fayth?" I said in disbelief.
21 - Vacation"Isn't it nice?" I asked as I stepped out onto the balcony.
"Yeah," Yuna said, stepping beside me and looking out.
"Ahhh It's so nice to be free of the school now."
"huh? How so?"
"Because they always yelled at me if I was sick. And this is a reprieve from reality, so to say."
"Isn't everything now?" Yuna said with a smile. I nodded.
"Yeah. Everything seems to resemble a dream now. But it's not. That's why I'm so happy."
"It's just about ten o'clock, do you want to head in?"
"Nah. I like looking at the stars. It's amazing, you know? I just can't help it when I see the stars. It's so " I trailed. "I don't know how to say it."
"That's alright, Cat." Yuna said as she looked up as well.
"Yo! Are you two gonna come in?!" Rikku said impatiently.
"Do you want to come out?" I asked.
"What are you two doing out there anyway?" Rikku steamed as she walked to us.
"Just stargazing." Yuna responded.
"Yeah." I leaned on the railing, holding the key in my hand, tight.
"Oh." Rikku said, reli
