                                                              Vincent couldn't help but chuckle at the lost request... she hadn't even noticed the euphemism she'd used, so he just let it go. She looked too cute to pick at her when she seemed so bouncy and happy... maybe later he'd explain what he'd meant, but right now, it didn't really matter. When she extended her hand so they could seal the deal, he took her small hand in is rather large one and gave her a firm shake. It wasn't as hard as he would have shook another man's hand, however it was still firm enough for her to know that he was serious.

                                                              Then she started to pull him back toward the bed, giving him bedroom eyes and purring out her words, so he was completely unprepared for her when she bonked him on the side of his head with a pillow. Sneaky little ninja seemed to want to play, she was younger so he wasn't surprised, but he wasn't exactly sure what to do to get her back. He watched as she grabbed the other pillow and scrambled off the bed, starting her gloating already, and he just watched her, his left eyebrow inching up to give him a rather skeptical look.

                                                              Once she was finished talking herself up, he used that split second to pounce. He was up and off the bed in one, fluid motion, grabbing her wrist in a firm, but gentle grip, using his superior height and weight to pin her against the wall, though his hands did not move toward the pillows, no... he pressed his body against hers, his ruby eyes soft as he looked down into her features. His arm snaked around her waist, causing her to arch her back against the wall, and he smirked for just a moment before he kissed her. This wasn't the sweet, romantic kiss from before, this was hot, needy and demanding... the kind of kiss that was invented to steal one's breath away.

                                                              While his mouth was occupying her, his hand around her wrist loosened just enough to move up to her hand, then he jumped back, one of the pillows now in his grip, and he very lightly tapped her on the side of the head. She wasn't the only one that could use seduction to win at a pillow fight. Now, they were on even ground, both had a weapon, or a shield, but not both. He took that moment to give her a tiny smirk before he bopped her on her shoulder, with a bit more force then before.

                                                              Ball was in her court, so to speak. To be honest, he wouldn't mind using the pillows as they were intended and continuing that rather heated kiss he'd started, however the little ninja probably had other plans. "Turn about is fair play," he whispered to her, a challenge... to play with the pillows, or in other ways... it was completely up to her. The light weight on his left hand reminded him that this was only the beginning of what would be a happy life, and she was obviously in the drivers seat... so where ever she wanted this to go, he would happily oblige her... as long as it wasn't running naked through the snow, or some other frat prank... even her doe eyes couldn't convince him to do something that crazy.

                                                              Terra smiled when Aqua came closer to him, moving to straddle his legs, the little sheer thing over her bathing suit parted to show more, unobstructed, leg. He had to wonder if she knew how adorable she was... probably not, if she did she would certainly use it to her advantage. She'd grown up with him and their late Master... it wasn't like she had a female role model to teach her what it was like to use her feminine wiles against a man... that just meant that she was naturally this cute, and it made it even sexier because she didn't even know it.

                                                              His hands lightly ran up her thighs, on the outside, he wasn't going to be lewd, at least not until he knew for sure if she wanted him to be, then she moved closer to him, the heat in the room going up again and he looked up at her, into her eyes and knew right then that there was nothing he wanted more in his life then to make her happy. He'd been so lost and confused, but she'd brought him back... he wasn't lost, and it was all because of her... he couldn't help but love her more then anything when she looked at him with though sweet eyes.

                                                              The little tease made him smile softly, and he moved his hands to her back and he pulled her closer, even though they really couldn't get too much closer in their present clothing, but he really did want her as close as possible. "I think that's close enough," he whispered, stretching up to capture her lips with his, allowing all sense and reason to melt away and to just feel... he didn't want to think about everything he'd done, or didn't do, that caused the people he loved so much pain, he just wanted to be with her right now, and let the sweet, gently ministrations of the woman he loved coax his body into a beautiful dance that neither of them had attempted before, but thought that it was long past time.

                                                              One of his hands moved up and into her hair, holding her close, but not so tightly that she couldn't get away if she wanted. The heat he was feeling from her, thanks to her rather provocative position, told him she probably didn't want to get to far away, but if she changed her mind, then he wouldn't force her to stay. He'd hurt her enough, and if they continued on, he would hurt her again... a necessary pain, he knew, but he didn't really want to cause her any more grief...

                                                              When they had to part for air, his chest heaved against hers, his hand sliding from her hair to his cheek and he gently caressed her sun kissed skin there. He'd been starting to feel some tension in his nether regions before, but now, it was probably noticeable... he wondered if he should warn her about it, but decided against it, just because he didn't want to upset her... if she found out that his body wanted to respond to her in such a way, on her own, it would probably be less embarrassing then talking about it. Everything was too new for that. Unable to resist her for another moment, he pulled her back in for a kiss, this time licking along her bottom lip so she might open her mouth and allow him entrance.

                                                              Cecil smiled and nodded when his wife told him that he good timing, showing up just when Miku was about to tell them about her home. It wasn't like he needed to be there for Rosa to regale her about Baron, since he was a prince, even if he was adopted, he was still protected a lot in the castle, so to be completely truthful, his lovely bride probably knew more about the town then he did. He was often spirited away for official business, and didn't often get away...

                                                              He sipped his tea as the other girl explained a bit about her home. Apparently there was a volcano nearby, and his eyebrows went up. "A large community so close to a volcano, are you not worried it might erupt?" He, of course, knew what a volcano was, but he'd never lived near one, and really Baron didn't have to worry about natural disasters, there were other concerns that didn't have much to do with Mother Nature. That was, at least, one thing he didn't have to worry too much about.

                                                              It seemed like Miku was going to continue on, but something caught her eye. He glanced over at one of the groups of people coming from the station, it seemed that one of them was known to their companion. "Of course, we'll remain here until you return." He didn't think she would run off and not tell them she'd met up with friends, she seemed like a very polite girl, and he believed if she said she was coming back, she would... at the very least to say goodbye so they could be on their way.

                                                              Once the girl was gone, he looked over to Rosa, sipping some more of his tea. "I didn't want to worry her, but my side is rather tight and sore... the scabs are thick and holding, so I don't think we have to be concerned, but my range of motion is impaired." Should they be faced with a fight, of any sort, it was better for his wife to know the whole of his condition, but he also wanted her to know that he didn't really need healed again... he was fine for now, but a wary eye would not be unwelcome.

                                                              "And I want you to conserve your energy. I can heal myself if need be, it's best to save your magic for an emergency."
                                                              He smiled a little at her, yes he was being a worry wort, but it was his nature to protect, and now they had a baby to think about. Normally he let Rosa do what she felt best in a fight, but there were times when he wanted to protect her, and he had a feeling many of those times would be coming in the nest few months... and she was probably going to get angry with him, but he didn't know what else to do... he wanted her and the baby to be healthy, and running around and fighting monsters wasn't a very successful way to do that.

                                                              Balthier heard his co-pilot before he saw her, and he turned to see his tall, beautiful partner in crime coming toward him at a brisk pace. As always, she started to assess the situation and came to many of the same conclusions he did. They were grounded without a ship, and while the Strahl was not here, that didn't mean they couldn't find a temporary replacement, somewhere. He sighed a little, his hands going to rest on his waist as he looked at the buildings around them. It seemed a rather forward society, technologically, they'd have to see if there was a way to procure another ship... a grounded Sky Pirate didn't amount to much more then a common ne'er do well... and Balthier was anything but common.

                                                              "I recall the same, I came to fetch you, then found myself here. I suppose if we are here, and Vaan is in Rabanastre, he'll be off joy riding before the day is through."
                                                              He seemed annoyed by this, but Fran would know better then that... Balthier was actually rather fond of the blond rapscallion, saw a bit of himself in ol' Vaan... good thing he had Penelo to dial it back a bit, Ivalice wasn't big enough for two of him... and he preferred it that way.

                                                              "We'll find a ship, but first, we should figure out where we are exactly... it isn't anywhere I know... and if I don't know it, then it isn't worth knowing."
                                                              He smirked a little, his dark eyes moving from window to window, seeing if he could see anything useful. Nothing all that helpful, just names of shops, and from the look of things, only naming the street they were standing on, and nothing much more then that. Of course, nothing could ever be easy, then it wouldn't be his life, would it?

                                                              He sighed a little, then Fran suggested that the others might have been pulled her as well. He nodded, thinking it was, at the very least, worth their time to look. "If they are around, then we should at least give searching a try... it's rather worrisome that you can no longer sense any Mist though... maybe we aren't on our world at all." That was a troubling thought in it's own right... if they weren't on Ivalice, then where in the hells were they?

                                                              Balthier started forward, figuring that Fran would follow, that was what she did, and he went down to the corner of the street they were on, looking up it, then down it. When he went back up again, he saw a pair of people, a man and a woman, turn the corner as well, and he cracked a little smile at the sight of them. "Well, look at that, it seemed our appointment with the Queen was far too important for her to miss... she followed us all the way here." He looked back at Fran, then started toward them, hoping the regent and her knight might have more answers then they did.

                                                              Squall thought at first that they might have been kidnapped by some sort of magic, pulled to this place for yet another fight. It seemed to be that way with him, the moment it seem to him that he could have a moment to relax, something or someone ripped it away. Bad things seemed to happen around him a lot, it was lucky for him that he knew how to fight, so he could deal with anyone that tried to harm him, or his friends. Maybe at the beginning he was only about himself, completely closed off from everyone, but he wasn't like that anymore... he really cared about his friends, and he didn't want them to get hurt... especially Rinoa, who was more to him then just a friend, he loved her... the first time he'd really managed to open his heart to someone that much... when things were so often torn away, it was hard to let anyone in...

                                                              He heard his girlfriend speak, telling him there was nothing to worry about, and he did see that most of the people walking around were looking at him like he was a little crazy. The gentle squeeze at his shoulder caused him to relax a little, a slow breath escaped his lips as he looked back at Rinoa, seeing the pleading on her features. While he didn't want to be unprepared, he really didn't want to go to jail... especially in a place like this that he didn't know. More then likely they would be separated, and that... he would not stand for.

                                                              He put his weapon away, but he didn't relax, still expecting an attack... why else would they have been moved to wherever they were? Even if these people here were just normal citizens of whatever city they were in, that didn't mean there wasn't a reason that they'd been pulled here, and he was willing to bet it wasn't because the leader wanted to have tea, or something idiotic like that. It was way to much trouble to kidnap to people... but it was very odd that they weren't being held by someone, that they had just shown up, together, in this weird place.

                                                              He relaxed a bit more then and looked down at Rinoa, "sorry," he said gently, knowing she would understand why he'd done what he'd done, even if there didn't seem to be a reason to do it. Squall just couldn't take the chance that, after all that had happened, to lose her in an unknown city because he was careless. The people around them weren't staring anymore, at least not in fear because of his gunblade, but their looks were uncomfortable for him, and he wanted to move... maybe the others were also kidnapped? It was possible, but they wouldn't know until they started to look.

                                                              The mercenary started forward, his gloved hand still holding Rinoa's, and they both knew that if they were to get in an actual fight, he would drop her hand to give her the rang of motion she needed to fight with him, but for now, since there didn't seem to be any immediate danger, he would rather keep her close. Besides, if she really wanted to do some damage, she didn't need her favored arm for that. "We should find out where we are, and how this happened..." He knew he was stating the obvious, but a predictable plan was better then no plan at all. If they couldn't find a quick way back, they would have to find an Inn eventually... where they were from it was rather late at night, and they'd both been at a party, he was rather fatigued already... it wasn't like that fight they'd won was a walk in the park... and it had been hardest on his body... he knew he was lucky to be here, and if it wasn't for Rinoa, he wouldn't have been. The tiredness was going to take a toll on him eventually, but for now, he would manage.

                                        It was undoubtedly very foolish of her to want to try to pull a fast one over Vincent Valentine of all people. Not that she was terribly skilled at reading other people, one would have needed to be extremely observant to notice the light changes and twitches in his expression that were so faint and subtle that the best bluffer would have been able to figure out. Still, she gave it a shot and attempted to lure Vincent Valentine back on to the bed and perhaps seduce him even if her intentions were less than noble not that any of her intentions when involving Vince were any noble at all. However, when she brought him back, she had briefly considered simply screwing the idea of actually attempting to trick him but in the end, her decision to simply 'play' won out.

                                        Once that decision was made, she back on the floor, basically taunting him to try and "play" with her. He probably thought her a foolish child, but who didn't? She could be rather silly, but she thought that Vincent didn't get enough silliness in his life. Everything was solemn and serious. The sadness in his life was heavy, and when was the last time he just did something spontaneous and light-hearted... laughed at a small joke that really was so bad that it wasn't even funny. She expected him to either ignore her or rush at her to try and fight with her at her forefront. One hand held the pillow shield and the other her pillow bopper.

                                        He moved swiftly and surely. Her eyes narrowed, prepared for any sort of fight he might put up. She was confident that he would have trouble stealing from her if he really wanted the pillows so she put those in priority for him not to get when she saw him descend rather gracefully from his bed perch. However, it was not the pillows he seeped to be after. He went right for her, the source, which was probably a good plan. Her wrists were held firm by his, and she figured so long as he held her wrists, he did not have a pillow and technically she had the advantage even if she couldn't move because his body pinned hers regardless of her hands. She was wrong, but she could still think she was right.

                                        She stared defiantly up into his crimson eyes as if determined not to bend or break against him. She was going to lose the staring constant, but she was going to put up a good fight. Unfortunately, despite what her mind was telling her, her body betrayed her quite easily as it bent pliantly against his request. Her eyes fluttered closed when their lips touched. Any concept of him trying to take the pillows away from her left her mind. She thought that perhaps he no longer wanted to play the game and had other games he wished to try. Melting against his mouth and body, she agreed wholeheartedly and whole-bodily to whatever he wanted to do. Putty body and brain against Vincent? Yes. Vincent, 1 and Yuffie, 0.

                                        Yuffie had absolutely no idea what Vincent was doing. His hands were moving, but that wasn't particularly important. Her hand loosened when he tugged upon it, and she released one of the pillows into his possession. Then she felt a light bop to the head. Nope. They were still playing apparently. Hot, flustered, and very bothered, she scowled at Vincent. There was a firmer bop to her shoulder and she exclaimed. "Now, someone's playing dirty." Warm... hot really and flushed, she could only breathe heavily after exclaiming those words. Vincent made a better ninja than her, stealing her breath like it was nothing and still so calm about the entire affair.

                                        This was what she got for challenging someone with like three times the experience as her. She breathed out, trying to gather her breath. Her temperature was by no means coming down because he was still pinning her rather closely making her immobile. His words were a challenge, and she was compelled to one up in. He was obviously still so close or else she would have been able to move. She more purposefully pressed herself closer to him and away from the wall, using her one free hand to wrap around his shoulders. With just enough strength, the fact that Vincent seemed intent on keeping her there, and a light hop in place, she was able to wriggle just enough and use his shoulders as leverage for her body to raise just enough so she could slide her legs comfortably around his hips.

                                        No longer needing her one arm to hold herself up because she had her legs to aid her, it relaxed and made space for her to lean forward and press her warm mouth against his neck. Fingers pulled down the collar of his shirt to give her space enough to lightly kiss against. She murmured just beneath his ear with great defiance, "Fair is fair then." She continued her light ministrations, just soft kisses, brushes against his skin as she tried to pull her other hand free as best she could when she felt it comfortable to pull back to her. With that second hand, she entangled it within his ponytail and completed her almost parasitic grasp of surprisingly tender and purposeful kisses around his neck, although unable to sink beneath the pull of his shirt collar, which halted her from reaching more skin.

                                        To say that the female keyblade felt a bit silly was an understatement. She felt so silly that she thought if someone opened the door right now and saw the two of them like this, she might have burned so hot with embarrassment that she would have burned out. And the only reason she didn’t feel half as embarrassed as she really should have been was because of all the people in the world for her to feel silly and act rather silly in front of, this was Terra. From her putting sand on her ice cream because she thought they would make nice sprinkles to her being afraid of the boogie man in her closet and under her bed, she really could not get any stranger.

                                        Regardless of that comfort, what she was truly worried about was whether or not she was doing this entire thing right. She knew the basic gist. And for now, she thought things were rather safe… They were not on a bed, and most of their clothes were still on, although she was feeling very warm and a bed wasn’t too far away. She just wanted to try and get this right. The perfectionist in her that wanted to master this as well was getting the better of her. Unfortunately, she didn’t have much experience… There weren’t exactly books like this in their library. She certainly was not going to seek them out either. All she could do was try and guess for right now.

                                        Her breath hitched, getting caught and stumbling forward when she felt a warm palm slide up her leg, high on her thigh. It was still on the outside, but it was where there was a slit in the transparent sarong around her hips that now fell forward and split more widely based on her present position, straddling on either side of his hips. She stilled her body, not sure what she should do about his hand that had settled on a slide glide on the outside of her leg. It caused her heart to flip and goose bumps to percolate along her skin there.

                                        Fortunately, his hand continued to move to settle at her lower back, a place that made a little more sense to her. There was a slight pressure there to pull her down further. She wasn’t sure how much further she could go. She was literally right on top of him already… Well, she knew how much further they could go, but that meant one of two things… the first one included her putting her weight on him and the second involved less clothing. Both were things that worried her. She wasn’t sure how comfortable Terra might be if she settled her entire weight on top of him. It wasn’t that she thought she weighed too much, but that would certainly restrict his range of movement. She didn’t want to pin him beneath her and force him to stay there.

                                        Still, with the way he pulled her, she was more inclined to settle herself over his waist rather than his hips as she scoot forward. It wasn’t a far stretch for him to rise and take her lips. She made it easier on him by leaning forward so he could ease himself back against the seat while she leaned forward and met his lips trying to make it more comfortable on his neck. She still had just enough thoughtfulness to do that before all other reason left her. In the end, she settled most of her weight over him, literally sitting on him or at least somewhere between his waist and hips because the strength in her legs was swept away and she could no longer hold herself to hover just above his body like that when his kiss was so inviting.

                                        She slowly shifted forward, leaning forward until her entire body practically hovered and caged his. The hands that had been so enamored with his hair, running through the messy strands and dug further, sliding deeper into the strands until they were practically at the base of his neck, holding on just in case she thought she would slip and bump her teeth against his chin because she wasn’t paying attention. Then she felt a constriction in her chest. Air. She needed to breathe. She pulled back, and he must have been thinking the same thing. They separated, and she was heaving. The air was warm and musky, humid including the warm breeze that blew in through the open balcony doors.

                                        Not once did she open her eyes, breathing heavily with her forehead resting against his. She could feel his light sheen on his forehead as well as the mixture of their bangs sticking to their skin and to each other. She could feel a dull thudding of his heart, the beating of something beneath a heaving chest beneath her own. They were pressed close enough that she knew it was his, and she unconsciously matched her breathing to his own. Without opening her eyes, she relished in the warm sensation that she knew came from the outside that was cool simply because she had gotten so hot… and Terra, too, she thought good humoredly.

                                        She also felt something else… There was a twisting in her gut. It had been building before, and it seemed lightly tied now. There was a flush along her now sensitive skin, which was more sensitive in certain places. She recognized at least some of it, the feeling that she had felt before that caused a certain craving to be elicited. It was almost… just almost embarrassing. Then there was one more sensation, which caused her eyes to flutter open then. It was another sort of pressure, not necessarily her own but Terra’s. Her cheeks darkened, and she suddenly dared not look down…

                                        Before she could think twice about the development between the two of them, Terra kissed her again. Her eyes closed again as she let out a soft moan, feeling the flick of his tongue against her lips and parting simply out of surprise at the act. It was then that their tongue dances in a new sensation that caused her to burn hotter and almost more painfully so but at the same time, she did not wished to stop. She snuck breaths in this time because she did not want it to end, and unconsciously, she pushed further against his body. Had she been worried about pinning him with her weight before, she wasn’t so worried now apparently.

                                        She found a surprising amount of pleasure and relief, although not quite enough, when their bodies became crushed against each other. A few moments ago, she was touched with surprise and worry. That was gone quickly, replaced by a sense of raw passion and instinct. It was enough of a feeling for her to want to continue to crave… the taste of his lips… the touch of his body… her hands slid down his body now feeling comfortable enough to hold herself accurately against his features… Those hands explored the sides and the cords of his back to his hips, unable to study the planes of his chest because she was determined to maintain what she only knew as their closest connection to date.

                                          The white mage archer paid great attention to Miku as she explained an animal called an ostrich. She was not sure she had ever encountered such an animal in person, but they sounded similar enough to chocobos. However, there was no guarantee that they were the same or they might have been exactly the same just had different names for the same creature. After all, when Miku described airplanes and boats-the latter of which was a common name for a seaship, she thought perhaps they might have had more in common than she first gave them credit for. They simply might have been dealing with different common names for similar objects.

                                          Rosa nodded when Miku asked about the world changing. She and Cecil had experienced something like that, although on different occasions. Cecil had confirmed to her that that was what had happened to him. When Miku described it, Rosa felt like it was an apt description of what had happened to her and likely Cecil as well. The eagerness by which she nodded was likely a confirmation that Rosa not only experienced the same thing but also felt very similar about the entire situation… The drain in color and oddity of the entire situation… All of it was not something that was normal.

                                          The young dark haired woman before her seemed like a kind girl. She was also terribly polite, which was not something that went amiss beneath Rosa’s observation. She was sure that Miku would not try to abuse their favor. Rosa would also not let Miku push too far either. It was only fair after all. They offered to be kind and because they were good people. If Miku was as polite as she seemed to be, she would only push as necessary and no more. After all, they had only just met. Offering aid was a matter of course just as not asking for a huge boon or one too much out of one’s ability was the intent of the offer.

                                          Between their conversations, Rosa quickly devoured the sandwich before her. In one moment, there was a whole meal on her plate, and in the next it was gone. Apparently, she was far hungrier than she originally thought. She downed the food, sipping her tea and clearing her pallet. She did not feel full, but she no longer felt as if she were famished. It appeared that her stomach was ready for further consumption, and the baby inside of her was ready to eat the food rather than cause her to regurgitate it. That would have been quite embarrassing.

                                          Someone came by and refilled the tea. She was taking another sip because her mouth felt quite dry after all that explanation. At that moment, Miku further inquired about the double moonrise. It was something very beautiful, and it surprised her to hear Miku ask about it. Did they not have two moons? After she swallowed, she nodded, “We do, but I suppose you do not.” There was surprise reflected in her eyes as if she expected that Miku should have two if not more. Having one would not be quite as interesting, and the sky would feel so empty. Miku was truly missing out if that were the case.

                                          Then Miku described Japan, and Rosa was glad to hear Cecil join their conversation. She would hate for him to feel left out. She sipped her tea and gave Cecil the reins in the conversation, gently listening to them as she consumed a second robust sandwich and drained a third cup of tea. Despite how much she ate, she ate it daintily as if she had eaten hardly anything. She lightly wiped the edges of her mouth with a napkin, watching Miku rise urgently as she seemed to notice a friend. Rosa had her back to the front, and she turned in her seat to see whom it was, but everyone looked all the same to her… all strange to her eyes. She looked back to Miku and nodded alongside Cecil, “Take your time.

                                          Rosa’s gaze followed Miku’s backside toward a male and female getting off the train station or at least that was what Rosa had assumed. Seeing that Miku was safe, she turned back to the table and her attentions toward her husband now that they were alone again. He confessed to her the magnitude of his injuries. Guilty and concern reverberated through her. Cecil held himself so well, and she would not have guessed that his injuries were so bad. Still, she was glad that he was being honest with her rather than try to hide it from her. She was grateful for that, although she was not grateful for his next statement about being concerned for her well being. She would decide what was best for her well-being.

                                          She contradicted softly, “Dear, you are not thinking clearly. I can heal as well as necessary. You know that. A few cure spells are hardly taxing on my body. However, if you’re injured, that will certainly tax me more when I could have healed you fully before a mess in which you might face some sort of emergency.” She hardly told him off amongst his subjects but saved those moments for when they were in private. He was the king after all, but she was also his wife and queen. “I will decide what to save and what not to save… Better that you are well before a fight than go in half dead and come out dead or worse you needing someone to heal you in combat or while you are grappled against the enemy-unable to heal yourself but needing to when you could have had been whole.

                                          Rosa remained firm on her terms as she sat close to him. Her fingers brushed both sides, looking for imperfections of either skin that was too soft or skin that was too hard or perhaps where his face cringed from pain. He could not stop her, although she would look a bit strange feeling up her husband in public albeit for pure reasons rather than impure. He could try and run away from her white magic, but that would simply be a waste of magic. She charged and casted several easy first tier cure spells. They worked better when they were resting than the more taxing complex spells that healed more in combat. She brushed both areas, curing a few times, eyes focused on his eyes as if daring him to tell her to stop or interrupt her spell. She was quite stubborn when she needed to be.

                                                Rinoa knew exactly what Squall was thinking when he acted, bearing his fangs before some unsuspecting world that neither of them recognized. Half of her expected to land in a location where there were guns and weapons pointed at them if not monsters or someone explaining to them why they were summoned there. She wondered if that was not something like how guardian forces felt when they called through however they were called only to show up in the middle of battle. Probably just as disoriented, and she supposed it was fitting that they lashed out at the command of their summoner but at least they had the person they were junctioned to in order to give some sort of idea of what was happening.

                                                Both she and Squall were thrown into an unknown situation with unknown dangers. Rinoa’s first instinct was to smile and try to see what she could make of this situation through talking to people and gathering information of sorts. She did not immediately resort to violence unless completely necessary and even then tried to talk people out of the situation. Although she did have quite a lot of combat experience, she was not trained in it like her other party members… now friends were since they were Garden raised to be basically mercenaries. However, Squall’s first instinct was usually an aggressive one, which wasn’t bad because in many situations that would save his life. In other situations like this one, it resulted in people just staring at them with confusion and/or fear.

                                                That was uncomfortable… They were back at the center of attention looking upon faces with such expressions that made her nervous. She was used to that look when people learned that she was a sorceress technically speaking. Sorceresses had a fairly widespread reputation of not being very nice. All that power went to their head. A lot of them tried to use that to take over the world and hurt people. She almost did just that albeit under the influence of someone else. But in order to ensure the safety of those she loved, she would have jettisoned herself into space and into the sorceress memoriam if that guaranteed that everyone would survive and she would not harm anyone she cared about.

                                                She hated that look… the ones with fear, and she urged Squall try appear more amiable at least for the moment so people would not begin to alienate them when they might have been able to tell them something. Right now, they were probably too intimidated by Squall and his sudden actions to approach or even talk to them or give straight answers. She never wanted anyone to be afraid of her since she had no intention of harming anyone, but it did happen often enough.

                                                Relief found her when his shoulders seemed to relax, and she watched him exhale a long breath that she knew started the process of Squall’s de-serious-ing. His weapon went into his side, away and out of his hand but by no means gone or far out of reach. She was glad that he was at least giving a lowering guard a chance. She waited for him to relax, no longer urging him since he was well on his way already after her coaxing. When he apologized, she just smiled. She used her free hand that had pinched his shoulder a bit, letting it slide down to his forearm, rubbing it through his jacket and saying softly, “I know. It’s okay, really. It doesn’t look like anyone’s attacking us right now.

                                                His reflexes and guard had saved them a number of times. She was not going to insult it now, but she was going to tell him to lighten up when there wasn’t a lot of danger. He began to move, pulling her along with him. She didn’t fight his grasp, meeting his step and surging forward with just a bit more energy as if she might reverse their roles and pull him along with her. “Let’s do that. I bet we can ask around for that, and now that your weapon’s not out… maybe people won’t be so scared of us to tell us.” She teased a bit. Squall did look rather intimidating with his almost constant frown and brooding sort of features. He looked all the darker when set beside the very chipper Rinoa Heartilly.

                                                After a few more paces, she was leading by a step or two. She waited until they seemed far enough away from their drop point before she began to ask people about where they were. She didn’t just ask anyone off the streets, she decided that it might be best to go inside somewhere. There was a general store up ahead, and she thought that might have been just the place to go. She looked over at Squall and said, “Let’s start there. General store for general information.” She pointed up ahead at the shop not a block over from where they were at the moment.

                                                She tugged them towards the right to arrive there, entering the store with a soft tolling bell to suggest that there were customers. The keeper immediately greeted them. She smiled and returned his greeting cheerfully, “Good afternoon. Me and my boyfriend just arrived here, but we’re not exactly sure where ‘here’ is.” The older matron laughed a bit, “You got on a train or just began walking and didn’t know where you’d end up? And they let out you out of the city you were just in?

                                                Rinoa hesitated, not sure how to answer. Technically, they had not taken a train or anything else. She shook her head a bit, laughing a bit nervously. The woman seemed to understand suddenly as she asked, “You didn’t come by either of those ways, did you?” Rinoa shook her head and realization seemed to dawn on the woman, which actually caused the sorceress to feel a bit of excitement. At least this woman could explain to them what was going on.

                                                Well, you’ve come to the right place. Here ya are.” The matron moved around and pulled out a pamphlet with the words ‘Nergal’ on it. It was basically a tourist attraction explanation fold up paper with basic history, points, and even a basic map of the city. She handed it to Squall to see if he could make anything of it, whispering with proud confidence, “Take a look. How’s that for information gathering?

Miku Hinasaki
~ Fatal Frame 3


Our memories
Still drift vividly


I had been drowning
In my own sorrow



Miku shook her head a little. “No, we don’t.” She found herself wondering what it would be like to have two moons. However, it was like imagining pigs fly. Possible, but still felt too far out there to feel like a real possibility. Then again, Miku had seen ghosts, which were considered physically impossible by most. Thus, she knew she could not rule out the possibility. Her mind went away from that though when Cecil asked about the volcano. “I wouldn’t be surprised if some worried about that. But, I believe for the most part, people just see Mount Fuji as a landmark meant for admiration and possibly some fearful respect. Never as a something to fear and completely avoid.” She could only offer her opinion on the subject. She hoped it was at least close to the truth.

Not long after that, Miku caught sight of what appeared to be Rei. She could not be for sure. But, her instincts were screaming at her to check it out. As she rose up though, the photography assistant could only hope Rosa and Cecil would be understanding. Thus far, they hadn’t given her any reason for her to think they wouldn’t be. However, she could understand abruptly going off on a possibly wild goose chase could offend some. Luckily, they both proved once more to be understanding. She smiled faintly at them both. “Thank you for understanding. I will be back as soon as possible.” Whether that would be to say goodbye or not, she did not know. She just knew that keeping them waiting any longer than necessary would definitely be pushing it.

Luckily, when she called out Rei’s name, Rei acknowledge her. That meant she hadn’t been wrong in her assumption, and her heart felt warmer at the thought. “Yes, Rei. It’s me.” After that, Miku couldn’t help but ask if Rei was alright. The last she could remember of Rei was when she had talked to her about the curse. How she felt so hopeless about everything. Looking back, it felt so strange to think she had thought that way. Yet, her depressive mood seemed to be gone upon coming here. Thus, there was no reason currently to think on the matter more. Even if remembering such made her want to apologize to Rei. Before her mouth could even form the apology, she felt arms wrapped around her, which briefly caused her to tense. However, she quickly relaxed upon realizing it was Rei.

Her gut twisted a bit more as she felt Rei’s tears. The moisture felt heavier the more her gut turned into a terrible mesh of guilt. But, Miku could feel her emotions relaxing the moment Rei started to express happiness. The lack of unsettling feelings allowed her to return the hug slightly. Though, with her family having never been highly affectionate, the best she could do was place her hands on Rei’s back. A bit of smile returned to her face as Rei whispered such words to her. While the guilt faintly remained, the happiness inside of her overwhelmed it with ease. “I am glad you are better, Rei. That makes me happy to know that.” When she felt a hand in her hair, Miku had to force back the urge to blush. For it was not an everyday occurrence for someone to touch her hair. Let alone someone close like Rei.

Luckily, her self-control proved stronger over her bodily impulses. Thus, she did not have to explain away something as embarrassing as reddened cheeks. Though, Miku once more remembered that she should apologize. Unfortunately, before she could, Rei pulled back and turned her attention back to the male. The reminder of the male made her realize the apology would be ill-timed. It would likely only bring her and Rei to a not so good emotional state. With them standing in the middle of the streets, Miku couldn’t risk embarrassing Rei, let alone herself. She took her mind off that as Rei introduced her to the male now known as Henry. She bowed herself now before raising herself back up. “It is a pleasure to meet you, Mr. Henry, and I am grateful that you have been protecting my friend.”

She felt it only necessary to add a “mister” to Henry’s name. She knew it would likely appear silly being attached to a first name. But, without a last name, Miku had to make do with what she had. “Are you from this world then, Mr. Henry? Since Rei did say she encountered you here after all.” He didn’t look terribly out of place. In fact, Miku could imagine him coming from the same place she and Rei lived. But, without confirmation, the photography assistant could only guess. Before Miku could ask more though, her eyes focused on Rei. The offer was an odd one to say the least. Her gift had only seemed to help her when she found herself involuntarily in situations involving ghosts. But, Miku knew the gift had been there before any encounters she had with gifts.

Thus, the main question was, did she willingly want to interact with the dead? She furrowed her eyebrows slightly as she thought it over. Her mind eventually realized that seeing her power in a more positive light would be a good thing. After all, if the gift was going to say with her for the rest of her life, she might as well have good experiences with it. She could only hope the ghosts here would not be as malicious as the ones she knew all too well. “I will gladly help.” At this point, Miku looked over her shoulder towards the Tea Shop. She remembered that Cecil and Rosa were waiting for her return. It would be rude to go off without telling them goodbye. Though, wouldn’t it also be rude not to offer them a chance at coming along?

“Though, how do you two feel about possibly two others tagging along?” She pointed towards the Tea Shop nearby. Whether or not they would see Cecil or Rosa specifically, Miku would not know. “I was-well…am traveling with two others actually, who are also not from around here. They helped me upon my arrival here, and I feel it is only right to ask if they want to come along. However, if you two are not comfortable with adding more to the group, I just ask to be given time to tell them goodbye before we go.” She would wait for the two to decide before going over there. For she would not want to tell Cecil and Rosa one thing and then have to change it up on them. That would not only be rude, but almost hypocritical. Miku would never allow herself to be either out of choice.

                    The glitch has been resolved in all locations except for those in-travel. For those in-travel. The glitch is now permanent or rather has a fifty-fifty chance of occurring. Because the world is expanding so rapidly, there is always a chance of a small error occurring. (AKA more random NPCs to fight.)

                    Please either finish up in the next round of posts or so if you're still fighting them or go out of towns to continue fighting them if you wish. Otherwise, in your next post if you are present amongst after images, they can disappear.

                    As an additional note: With every post you spend fighting an After Image you kill, you earn 5 gold pieces so divy that in your post picking it up from After Images as you see fit. I said these After Images are weaker than the original, bu they aren't paper thin either so just use good judgment.

                                                              Zidane understood why she was angry, and he didn't hold that against her at all, he would just have to work harder until she finally forgave what he'd done. He understood, going back in, that there would be issues when he returned to her... even if he'd done the leaving for the right reasons, that didn't stop the fact that he left here there, something he'd promised not to do... she'd found out what he was and still came to try and get him back... and while he felt he had to help Kuja, it doesn't stop the fact he did a lot of evil, and he probably should have let him suffer it alone, and returned with his friends. That hadn't occurred to him until he was struggling to get home to them, because, despite his 'sticky fingers' he was a good person... deep down.

                                                              When she said something about those fingers he laughed a little, letting a rather happy smile pull across his features. She was already getting back to normal... to his Dagger... and it warmed his heart to know that this wasn't something they couldn't come back from. It wasn't like he really wanted to leave her, it was just something he had to do... and he hadn't expected it to take so long to make it back... however he would take his punishment, whatever she decided needed to happen, and then they would move on.

                                                              He didn't know if some genome thief was going to allowed to marry Alexandria's Queen, but he didn't care. He would marry her the moment he could do it properly, and if they decided to make a fuss, he's just make one right back! That was on thing he would never conceded on, her happiness. If that happiness needed him to be in her life, then he would do that... if she wanted him to leave... then he would. Though the cocky part of him knew that, after that sort of reception, she wasn't going to let him go anywhere, anytime soon... and to be honest he was just fine with that. No matter where they were, so long as he was with her, then it was paradise.

                                                              "I missed you too Dagger,"
                                                              he said softly, reaching up with his free hand and he touched her nose playfully with the tip of his gloved finger. His smile was soft, another silent apology. He was pretty sure he'd be doing that a lot, but whatever she wanted... There was a time in their journey that she'd left them, and he'd been terribly depressed during that time, but from that point, to the final battle they had to go through, he'd matured, and while the separation hurt, even more then it had the first time... he knew better then to carry on like that. He had to do whatever he could to get home to her, and that was all that was on his mind. Now, that she was there, all he wanted to do was touch her and talk to her... and whatever she would let him do... he was a perv sometimes, but right then, his mind wasn't even in sexy places, he was just too relieved and happy to see her.

                                                              Oh, then she issued a challenge, and he raised a blond eyebrow and looked at the potential marks. He saw one man that looked overly well off, especially with the poor people around him trying to make a living, so with Garnet in tow, he walked toward her, chatting about this 'great restaurant' he'd heard about, then he 'accidentally' bumped into the guy. "Oh, excuse me! I didn't see where I was going, my girlfriend is just so pretty, I was entranced! A thousand apologies!" The man looked to Dagger, with a leer in his eyes, and in that moment, Zidane decided he not only deserved to get some money stolen, but all of it, just for looking at his girl that way. He cleverly took the heavy pouch and handing it off to his prehensile tail, which hid the hefty bag between the two of them as they continued on, the smirk on the thief's face growing. Once they were out of sight and a few street over, he pulled her into an alley and held the back out to her, which was still being held by his tail. "I have a sticky tail too, impressed?" He chuckled a little, shaking the back so she could hear the coins jingle inside.

                                                              Basch stayed silent as Ashe spoke, more out of respect and admiration then any protocol that may have been force on him at one time. Yes, he was not supposed to talk to a royal until spoken to, that was just the way of the palace, and his place, however he didn't do anything for Ashe that he didn't want to do because he respected her. As a leader, as a person... as woman and as a friend. He didn't interrupt friends when they were speaking, especially when it seemed that the topic was a hard one.

                                                              He'd missed her over much, too much to be proper, and the mere thought that she might miss him too, well it made his heart flutter in his chest a bit, like a silly school boy, but he couldn't help it. Even if it would never, ever be, knowing that he was an important friend was more then he'd ever thought he could have. He did often sell himself short, but it was humility, not out of some false sense of pride. Some knights played at humility, but did so only to be praised all the more for being able to accomplish something thought beyond themselves. Basch on the other hand, saw many mistakes he'd made, many miscalculations, and while his fighting prowess was not in question, his ability to truly lead was questionable. So Ashe was right in a way, and his confidence wasn't as high as it could have been... but he decided to play things her way, at least for now... if she wanted to be Ashe, and she wanted him to be a strong protector for her... then that he could do.

                                                              "Penelo will help Vaan stay on the side of good, even if he isn't always on the side of right."
                                                              He smiled a little at her as they walked, "and Ashe, you are a treasured friend to me... and if you wish to only be a friend, and not a sovereign, then I am all too happy to give you what you wish. Just, please excuse any slip ups, even if I am too humble, as you say, I am still far from perfect." Hopefully that would stop him from getting into trouble in the future... he certainly didn't want her to give her that death glare she was so fond of.

                                                              "Now, how goes your... job?" He wanted to know how she was doing in her position as Queen, but since she wished to be incognito, then he used the word 'job' and he was sure she would understand the question. They turned the corner, onto a new street since the one they'd been following turned to be a dead end, and he maintained his gait to stay right at her side, so it looked like to friends walking and chatting, rather then a Queen and her Knight.

                                                              He looked up as they turned, checking for anything suspicious, and two figures came around a corner onto the same street, at almost the same time, and the two couldn't be more suspicious, even if they were friends. "Balthier and Fran?" He said to Ashe in a low voice, sure it was them, but wondering if they'd just arrived like the two of them, and if it was under the same sort of circumstances. That was rather worrisome to be completely honest... what of Vaan and Penelo? The others of their crew? Even the Emperor... was he somewhere nearby?

                                                              Cloud smiled softly when she vocally confirmed what he'd been thinking, that it couldn't be true... that he was just dreaming it up. She was so good to him, and he didn't know if he really deserved her, but he was determined to be a man that she was proud of... to make up for leaving when he should have stayed with his family... he was physically strong, but mentally he still made the same mistakes that a younger person would make... yes he'd lost five years of his life, and he spent it out of his mind, in a tube of mako, but had he really evolved past that? He liked to think he was trying, everyday, to be a better man then he was the day before... even if people thought he was some hero, he wasn't... he was selfish... he didn't want Sephiroth to take anything more from them, so he fought with all his strength... that made him selfish, not selfless...

                                                              But, he wanted to see himself as Tifa saw him... and to let go of the guilt of the people he couldn't save, and be grateful for those he did... No, not everyone was alive today, that just meant that, from now on, those that were fortunate enough to go on needed to live life to the fullest... and he'd been doing a terrible job of that... being trapped in his mind, then in a diseased body... if he was going to die, he knew now he wanted to be selfish again and die with Tifa there... sure he'd tried to protect her from the disease, from watching that taint ravage his body... he couldn't protect them if he couldn't make himself healthy... but leaving had been the worst mistake he ever could have made... and now he needed to be twice the man just to make it up to her...

                                                              She was so perfect, perfect in her own imperfections... beautiful and strong and talented... and she'd chosen him... he must have been the luckiest guy ever born. This was the time when he needed to be brave for her... not staring down the gullet of a monster, or clashing swords with a completely different sort of devil... fighting was easy, it had been forced into him and his awkward worst... unfortunately, emotionally he'd had a hard time moving past the teen years he'd missed... he trusted her with his live, now his heart... and he would be brave and believe that she would never hurt him...

                                                              Then she whispered that she loved him, and that everything was true, she had said yes to him, and it wasn't some sort of dream, and a dam broke inside him, when he finally let himself believe that yes... something wonderful could happen to him, and yes... he did deserve every moment of this new life he was going to have with her... as his wife. He smiled at her, a bright smile that he didn't know if he'd ever smiled before... not as a child, not before the 'accident'... and certainly not after, but he couldn't remember ever feeling such complete joy before in all his life.

                                                              The water was cold and soapy, and he found that it had lost all allure, and he held her effortlessly against him as he stood up, out of the water. He kissed her, and whispered "bed... now..." between rather steamy touches, and he got them both out of the water and quickly dried them both off. The urgency was in his eyes, but he didn't want to do that in bath water... this time, since he knew at least more of what he was doing, he wanted to make sure that Tifa felt like the goddess she was.

                                            A significant part of her wanted to punish Zidane, but another part of her just wanted to punish herself for thinking about the former. He had gone back in the Iifa tree and saved Kuja. He was a hero. Then he had to escape and suffer all of that on his own. It took him some time, but he still managed to find his way back to Alexandria, back to her. She was angry at him for leaving her, for sacrificing himself because there was no way he could have known or anyone could have known that he could have even come back from that. If he didn't come back, she didn't know what she would have done... probably gone on living life as per usual. However, that would not have made her any happier.

                                            It was with Zidane that she felt like herself... She didn't feel this empty hole inside that he was gone... that it was her fault that he was gone. She blamed herself for his potential death similar ot how she had blamed herself for the death of her adoptive mother-Queen Brahne. Neither of their deaths were directly connected to her. However, she felt like she should have had power, power enough to have influenced them and saved their lives somehow. She didn't like Zidane's loss hole her up like her mother's had. No, her friends that remained would not let her... They managed to bring her out and give her a reason to live... for her people that knew no better about anything that had gone on except that Alexandria was nearly destroyed at one point.

                                            She was so afraid that she would lose him. His initial loss was unexpected. He had always been there for her whether or not she knew it. She had pushed him away, run away, left him, and so much more... yet when she was at her lowest and faced her hardest trials, he was there to support her. When she was in trouble, he was there to save her... well... kidnap her to somewhere safer. When Alexandria faced Bahamut, he was there to catch her from falling off the deepened. Even in her silence and confusion, he stayed by her side. She could have done and said the meanest things to him, but his stubbornness (which she hated at the time) allowed him to create an indestructible niche in her heart.

                                            Then he was gone. The indestructible had been all but destroyed... The piece in her heart remained solid as ever, but with no one to occupy it, it was hollow but too powerful for her to just see passed. He had impacted her and changed her in ways that she never thought she would change. He had made her a better person by challenging her and teaching her about the world, shattering her naivety without leaving her there to stand against the whole world alone... Of course, she had friends... They were therefore her as well, and they were the reason she did not jump off the deep end again when she thought he was gone. They saved her... Everyone always saved her. She may have been the Queen of Alexandria, but she was nobody without people to rely upon in truth. A queen was made by the people who followed her and not vice versa.

                                            She half wanted to frown and half simply wanted to smile when he lightly tapped her nose. She went with the latter simply because she enjoyed hearing that she had been missed and nearly as much as she had probably missed him. He might never know how much she had thought of him and how often he plagued her thoughts. When court or anything else was boring, her mind wandered back to him and their journey together. They were good memories that she could not and would not trade for anything except to have Zidane back at her side once again… to have the real thing rather than just fragments of a life that might never be.

                                            An amused smile crossed her features when Zidane changed the subject, turned the tides… and she knew what he was doing. He was just using her as a distraction while he bumped into the well-dressed man. She was glad that she looked rather normal rather than as wealthy as she might usually. She might have become the target of something else, something more, although anyone would be troubled greatly if they messed with her both because of her eidolons and because of Zidane, who was just as skilled as a thief.

                                            She bowed her head lightly feigning an apology despite how much she did not like the look on that man’s face. She cringed, wanting to be out of there. She was having second thoughts on challenging Zidane because this man seemed a bit of a creeper to her. Fortunately as skilled and sticky as Zidane’s fingers were, they were incomparable to his speed. She could not see his acts, but she felt the firm touch of his hand against her back to guide her away from that man so they could continue on their way in mere moments from the initial bump.

                                            She smiled at the genome and said with a bit of sly, “Maybe. I don’t think I should feel so impressed by a crime committed even when it is you.” She was the one that had issued the challenge. It was playful. She knew that he would take it but at the same time really did not expect him to. She reached to try and grasp the jingling bag out of his tail’s grasp, thinking that he might pull it out of her reach. He seemed to be offering it to her so it seemed rude to refuse but with her less than appreciative words, he could be teasing and baiting her himself.

                                            Dagger resigned herself with a lofty gesture, “Still, having some is better than none.” Having no money was usually not very good. That meant no inn or anything for emergencies. She rationalized, “He probably won’t miss this much, but I can’t believe he carried this much on him and didn’t have a guard and wasn’t worried about someone taking money from him. I don’t think we need to use any right now, but how about continuing our walk?” She held her hand out, thinking that just walking and talking with him was enough for her right now.
