                                        The ninja suspected that Cloud had known where Vincent was all along. The way he nonchalantly addressed them as if Vincent had not up and dropped off the face of the planet. Not to mention, Vincent had just ignore her exclamation. (Of course, Vincent was normally like that...) Still, she'd expected that he would at least eye twitch or something, perhaps do more than pretend like she hadn't said anything to him at all. A, 'This is not the time for this, Yuffie,' would have been more of a response. Of course, she would have at least liked some sort of explanation or even an excuse for an explanation later or something. Nope. Nothing at all.

                                        She nearly pulled out her now medium length dark strands from how infuriating both Cloud and Vincent made her. She could forgive Xianghua. She was not involved. She was just a new person. She had an excuse. She exhaled deeply, determined to bring the situation back up later... louder and more distinct the next time. They would rue the day that they tried to ignore her! Of course, they already probably rued the day that they had let her force her way into their group to save the world. She still an invaluable asset to them! In her mind, she made all the difference against Sephiroth, even though she spent much of that final battle in Midgar with the one of the people that was ignoring her at this particular moment. More than three times she had saved their hides, the great ninja Yuffie. But did she get even a small ounce of respect? No!

                                        She crossed her arms, too frustrated to have realized that she had attained one of her goals in life. It was only at that moment when she stiffened her entire form and began to march off in the inch and a half or so amount of snow. She declared as if Cloud had not suggested already, "It's cold out here. We'll go to an inn," she repeated with great redundancy as she headed in the direction that Cloud had pointed out. She repeated with the fervor of one trying unsuccessfully to be a leader, "C'mon. Let's go!"

                                        She turned a bit to look at Xianghua, wearing Cloud's jacket, "You, too, of course. We can't just leave you in the snow. Sounds like you've got a good cause. 'sides we girls have to stick together!" She said brightly, linking her elbow with Xianghua's and began to drag her escort her arm-in-arm to the inn. It wasn't too far. Literally right around the block as Cloud stated. There was a sign, hanging outside and everything. She felt a significant drag behind her as she walked, but she just attributed that fact to Xianghua. She ignored the boys behind her since she was still kinda miffed that they had pretty much disregarded her outrage from before. Yuffie knew they would follow and probably in boring silence, too.

                                        Yuffie pushed open the door and nudged Xianghua inside first. She was an arrogant, forceful, and sometimes pretty selfish girl, but she still had good intentions. She was kind and caring in her own way... frequently in a more physical and almost negative way. Still, she never hurt people that didn't deserve it, and she was much more intuitive than people gave her credit for. Her simplistic manner at looking at life and the honest way she faced herself and the people around her were among her best and worst qualities. She was straightforward about everything, the good things and the bad things. She was a ninja with nothing to hide. Irony in a single statement.

                                        After she felt that Xianghua was safely inside, she moved in behind her. She had made it all the way from meeting Xianghua to the inn before tripping on the so called "significant drag" behind her. She thought she might have missed a step, or perhaps there was leverage at the threshold of the door. She stumbled through, catching herself sideways on a chair. She glanced at the door, scowling, "Who's bright idea was to-" Familiar crimson tatters filled her gaze. She was astonished, and she remembered something to the effect of not feeling cold anymore.

                                        Righteousness filled her gaze. She declared with renewed vigor, finally addressing one of the two males, "You're not getting this back, Vincent Valentine." She had raised her hand shook her fist while the other moved to grasp the upper edges of the fabric, holding it up so that she wouldn't trip on it a second time.

        Name: Nathan Drake
        Series: Uncharted
        Location: Eden with Alkaid
        Equipment: AK-47, .45 defender handgun, 2 grenades, ceremonial dagger
        Feeling: Bit better



________________________________________/////////////////////////////// xxx /////////////////////////////// xxx /////////////////////////////// xxx ///////////////////////////////xxx ///////////////////////////////xxx ///////////////////////////////


                    Nathan doubted anything stranger has ever happened in his life. Which was saying something considering strange moments tend to happen on a daily basis with the man. But he went from surviving a train wreck that was about to fall off a cliff and dodging a bunch of soldiers who wanted him nothing more than dead to being dragged to a doctors office by a bossy red headed woman. In the span of an hour, no less. Well, it could have been worse. No one decided to pull out any guns and start shooting. That was usually a good sign, in most cases at least.

                    Still, the man didn't like being stuck in this office. Nathan was always up and about doing something and being active. Being cooped up in a doctors office for who knows how much longer was only serving to make him more antsy, even in his injured state. Though in the end sitting through this for a bit was always better than dying of blood loss. Thankfully when Flynn decided to shoot Nathan, the bullet went cleanly through. It would not have been explaining to the doctor, or the woman that helped him, why he had a bullet lodged into his side. Though if he were to take a guess, both of them already probably knew what the cause of the injury was. Possibly even the fact Nathan had a AK-47 thrown over his shoulder could have pointed to that conclusion. Speaking of which...why wasn't his weapons confiscated yet?

                    The doctor then got up and left the room, the man took this as the cue that they were done here. It didn't take as long as the treasure hunter expected but he was now all stitched and patched up. Nathan would still have to take it easy though, at least for a little bit. Nathan turned to the girl and rose an eyebrow. Of course he could understand her, she was speaking a language he could understand after all wasn't she? Or not...now this was just strange, Nathan could speak quite a few languages but Japanese wasn't one of them. And based on her reaction, that was just the language she was speaking. "Yeah...this is all very odd, but lets not question it before we start speaking gibberish to each other, huh?" Nathan joked lightly. Though, it would certainly get very difficult to speak with this woman if he suddenly couldn't understand her anymore. Best not to jinx it.

                    Deciding that he had enough of sitting, Nathan slowly got up and began to carefully twist and turn his torso to see how much restriction these bandage wraps gave him. Once satisfied, he arched his back slightly enough to crack his back. He has been sitting and hunched over far to long because of that damn bullet wound. "Of course you are breathing, I don't see why you wouldn't be." A playful smirk then crossed the mans face. "Of course I might be able to understand if my good looks have left you breathless." After his little bit of teasing he got a bit more serious. A game called 'The World'? Nathan certainly never heard of such a game before, but then he never was that big of a gamer, he was to busy, usually being out in the middle of nowhere chasing clues about some ancient treasure or another. She wasn't alone in the fact she was looking for someone. Nate sure wouldn't mind finding Elena right about now. Oh the ear full she would give the man once she found him. Nathan just nodded when she asked him to keep calling her Alkaid though. It was a lot easier to remember in his opinion anyways.

                    So she wanted to know a bit about him, huh? He supposed that was understandable since they were in the same boat and she already mentioned a bit about herself. "Well lets see...I already mentioned my name." He then brought a hand up and rubbed his chin as he was planning what to even say. Might as well use the same sort of approach she did, Less thinking that way. "Well, I'm a twenty seven year old treasure hunter, and a very good one at that. Oh yeah and I'm also on the top of a Serbian war criminal's 'to kill' list. Nothing all that special." He then pointed to his bandaged side, linking the wound to the last part of what he said about being on the bad side of a certain insane war criminal.

                    The treasure hunter figured what he said was good enough for now. The longer she stayed around him, the more she would know about him anyways. Nathan then blinked and turned towards the girl when she suddenly shrieked and was quickly fumbling around with her top. What a strange girl, of course clothes could come off. "I take it you have your clothing crisis under control? If you need help you just need to ask." Nathan just chuckled a bit and began to walk out of the doctors office. Before she even finished speaking about if he could walk or not, Nate was already up and out the door and then turned around to call out to her. "You coming or what?" Might as well explore a bit to try and figure out what was going on. And the two of them were definitely not going to get that accomplished by standing around.

Watching the interaction from a distance, haseo was a slight bit confused. Since he was not exactly there, he couldn't honestly hear what was going on in the conversation, but from the movements and the expressions, it looked like something wasn't going the right way.. Hm, perhaps he should ask when she came back over? Nah, he wasn't the prying type much, he'd let it go. Still, he was a bit curious.

Turning his attention back to the armored man before him as his hand was grasped in a firm shake, he blinked at the man's title. A king? Well, he supposed he could technically call himself an emperor if he went by arena title, so who was he to judge a king? Plus by the simple tone it was said in, it wasn't like some lie. He stated it like it was fact, Haseo was fine with that, though he wasn't sure wether to address the guy as your highness or anything... nah.

His second title was something he could understand more. Paladin. Came with healing magic too, that was a bonus. The fighter in haseo idly wondered in the back of his mind how much of a challenge Cecil would be. He didn't really want to just attack the guy, but perhaps if they had time a friendly fight could be had... Shaking the thought from his head, he smiled slightly. "Healing is always useful to have, and I have to agree here. I think the title of warrior will suit the situation better than one of royalty. I know a few elemental spells, very weak though. I'm more of a weapons and weapon skills fighter and can use four different weapons that I have on my person."

A slight frown came to Haseo's face at those words. It seemed some people were pulled here under more dire circumstances than just curiosity and investigation... If all of that was truly going on, there was a secure and large reason to get home for this man. Nodding Haseo held the king's gaze confidently. "I may not be sure of what the situation is, or if I myself want to travel to my home just yet, but I'll do my best to help you get back to you're wife and people." Haseo replied. A year of his own adventures taught him how much help was useful, if he could be like that to this new man he would do his best. Besides, if he got home, he could always surprise everyone with a story on helping a king get back to his country. Looking over to Aqua and whoever the blonde was, Haseo nodded. "Perhaps they will join us."

"I haven't been feeling like myself lately.."
textextʂѻʀɑtextext


          Well, it wasn't the situation he was expecting to be in, but Sora was always happy to help when he was needed. Who knew when he woke up he would end up finding a door to a new universe... though that begged the question of why doors to new worlds were opening up. As far as he could tell, there were no heartless or nobodies here... hmm, so how did he get here really if not a door? Could it be like the time he ended up in traverse town?

          Looking to the pink haired injuried woman who was getting up, as she stumbled Sora blinked, but before he could help steady her she was fine, sort of. Well as fine as someone that injured could be so soon. As he was about to speak, another voice beat him too it. Looking over to the source, he suppressed a shiver at the odd vibe he was getting from her.. it was almost like.. like Sephiroth. Before the two had fought. Calm and poised right before any battle. Could she be as dangerous? He frowned slightly at her words, there were ways of putting that better.. "I might not say it that way... but the lady is right. You're still injured, until you're back to even slight fighting standard you shouldn't be moving. If it helps while you're recovering I can look for you're friends." Sora offered.

          Blinking at Tifa as she spoke, Sora tilted his head. When she looked at him... it was as if she didn't know who he was. Hm... Then from hearing her talk, he realized something. She wasn't talking about Radiant gardens where he swore she was last. She also seemed a lot more confused for someone who had world hopped once before... so could she have lost her memory? He didn't think so.. Actually hearing it all as she spoke, it reminded him of how Leon put it when he asked about what had happened when he first got to traverse town.. So was Edge the first world she was from? He didn't think time warps were possible... but he had seen weirder things out in the universe so who knows.

          Still, it was a bit saddening that Tifa didn't seem to remember him, frowning slightly he sighed a bit. Oh well, there was no helping it. He would just have to make friends all over again, no problem! Seeing as everyone was confused, he was about to chip in his own theories when suddenly there was movement from the tanned woman. Blinking in surprise at the sudden action, he summoned his keyblade to hand ready for something to happen. When it just as suddenly died down, he shook his head. Yup, weird situation..

          "My names Sora.. and I might have an idea on whats going on... but this situation is also kinda different than what usually happens since Tifa doesn't remember me any so I'm kinda making guesses." He was kinda sure he wasn't supposed to tell them anything about the keyblade and alternate worlds... but that applied to locals of the world if he remembered right. This was a traverse or radiant garden situation if he ever saw one, and he had told cloud and Leon about his stories without getting in trouble. Looking to the sky, he saw possible rain on the horizon and nodded. "I think you're right, we should find somewhere inside to discuss this, seeing as we all appear to be in the same boat. Once we figure out whats going on, then we can make a plan to help find ways home and to locate friends while getting rested up for those of us who need it." Being the youngest here and suggesting plans might be weird to some, but Sora was kind of used to it by now. Hopefully the others would agree to it.

                                          Kain exhaled heavily at Rikku's words. She had correctly pinpointed the very reason why he felt so disjointed among them. They were young, and he was... still young in a relativistic stand point. However, he felt significantly older than either of them. He had experienced the darkest parts of him and known a deeper regret in his own life for hurting those he loved the most... Rikku's lightheartedness drilled into his existence painfully. He could little exist in her presence for much longer. The manner by which she spoke was so exceedingly childish. He was not completely averse, but it seemed so unsuitable for a woman of what seemed to be at least of womanhood. She was not modest but blunt and straightforward...

                                          Then she spoke in a foreign language, which sounded very much like gibberish to him. It was fortunate that his helm covered his eyes for there would have been great skepticism buried there. He shook his head and said politely, "Thank you for the advice, but I think I shall pass upon it. I am fully aware of how cruel the skies might be. Should they chose to strike me down now or later, it would not matter... They have not yet to do so." He personified the sky with life as he saw it. It was like those sailors that personified the mistress that was the seas. It was just the same, the master of the skies... It was just as cruel to any of those that might travel there.

                                          Rikku was quite presumptuous herself, declaring them all in a party as she did. He might have put her akin to Edge, but even Edge was not so... giddy. And when she stated all their positions there after, he nearly laughed aloud at the decisions. If she was the leader, they might as well all dig their graves now. He or Terra, he might have trusted a bit more. There was battle experience in their respective eyes. Rikku might also have seen them, but Kain could little tell in her wide movements and skimpy dress.

                                          He stood up all of the sudden and bowed his head a bit, sigh very visible even from the distance. "As expected, I do not believe I will be of any help to you. I have not met with either of those figures that you have named or described. If I do see someone to their description, I will say that you were searching for them." There was a fine point of finality in his tone. He was leaving and had no intention of speaking further with them. However, he at the very least was reasonable enough to suggest that he would not forsake her efforts. It might have been better for a girl like her to find her comrades...

                                          Speaking of which, a solemn male figure approached that seemed to know her. It was the perfect cue for him to take his leave. He felt stifled in this group of people. With one further nod of his head to the two males and one female on the ground, he backed off the roof in a direction that would put distance between himself and the trio. He moved back across a few roof tops before he descended, level with the ground. He let himself get swallowed up between the rhythm of the people moving. He did not need them following him. He already felt discomforted by the bright Rikku, and not to mention, he felt separated by their age and/or familiarity that might connect them.

                                          He had difficulties making friends, choosing rivalries, partnerships, or soloing as the best options. He had few true friends, and they were far away, not to mention the fact that he had betrayed them not once or twice but many more times. He had even chosen to forgo their wedding. He couldn't imagine it being a huge blow to them, seeing all he had done to them. However, he himself felt a bit bitter that he could not even wish his best friend and the woman he loved a wonderful life... together.

will carry you through the hardest of trials."

{Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep}



And hold on before it's too late
We'll run 'til we leave this behind
Don't fall, just be who you are
It's all that we need in our lives

And the risk that might break you
Is the one that would save
A life you don't live is still lost

So stand on the edge with me
Hold back your fear and see
Nothing is real 'til it's gone

                                                Terra wasn't all together sure about this girl. At first, he'd been willing to stick with her and Kain, the older man seemed too have a good head on his shoulders, even if he seemed... burdened. The fighter could understand that, he felt the same way. There was a huge weight threatening to cause him to collapse under it. His shoulders might be broad, but they were going to fail if he didn't do something about it... yet Kain seemed to have much more on his mind, but he stood straight. He wanted to talk to him.

                                                The keyblader had a feeling that the dragoon was going to leave. Terra had had that itch before, right after he'd lost to Aqua... no it wasn't her fault, it was all his... he was the one that was tainted... but that same feeling had taken hold of him. He needed to run, and he bet if he could see the other man's eyes, he'd recognize them from the mirror.

                                                Sure enough, he slipped away, just as an older man in a red coat came up. He knew Rikku, and Terra wasn't exactly comfortable around him... there was something different... and the strange similarities he felt with Kain, he didn't feel for Rikku, and in a way, Auron felt like he shouldn't have been there... not that he was a bad sort, not at all... just that he was out of place, more so then the rest of them.

                                                "I'm going to catch up with you later Rikku, I think Kain might need my help more right now, and your friend his here now."
                                                He smiled, something he didn't really mean, not because of her, but because of the horrible emptiness in his heart, and he turned to run past the house. He turned the corner, but didn't see him. How did he lose a tall guy in blue armor? Maybe he hadn't even gone that way at all...

                                                Terra wasn't going to give up though, he'd find Kain and ask his advice. Of anyone, he had a feeling Kain had gone through something a lot like he had, and he might have some words to exchange with him... on how to make things better. He didn't want to lose Ven... especially Aqua. He didn't want to admit it, after all he'd done, but that didn't stop him from knowing in his heart that he loved her... maybe Kain had loved, maybe he'd lost... he wouldn't know until he asked him... and he had to ask him.

The bi-product of his observation was almost as amusing as the observing its self. The civilians seemed to think him akin to a plague victim perhaps.. no, more like the regarded a caged animal such as a tiger. They thought it was on a leash and could do no damage so they tolerated, they stared, they whispered, but they also feared. It was not as apparent on some as it were others, but it was there. The fear of something only their primal instincts screamed. So they also gave him a wide area, not wanting to tread on too close. Little did they know he was not caged in any way or form. It just simply wasn't beneficial at this time to take their insignificant lives.

Insignificant was putting it lightly. Did a human look down and wonder at the ants treading beneath it? No, they sometimes took notice for their own amusement, but any other time humanity tread over ants and their homes as if they weren't even there. It was much the same in the relationship Sephiroth had with present humanity. He at times found the amusing, but more often than not they were so pointless that they were beneath his notice. As of now they were something on the side to amuse him as he watched his two targets interact. When the time came he would stomp the anthills these humans called cities and towns, before heating the remains to glass to make sure any who survived new full well it was no act of mercy, it was simple luck for them to have been passed over by someone their better.

His observations proved fruitful. Between the two of his targets he witnessed.. a weariness to the light, to the culture. A bond of darkness between them, but one of being without direction. It would make his plan that much easier. After all, what did one who was lost want most in life? A path to follow. Sephiroth would observe and learn, deem if their strength was even worth it, and if it was. Then, and only then would he set them on the path of survival, his path, a path tread in darkness in blood, a path leading to power through the dark, and making enemies of those that dwelled in the light and thought themselves superior to those of the dark. The thought of that alone made the man smile. Light being superior to the dark.. Light needed dark, where there was light there was always dark, on the opposite spectrum, dark did not need light to live or grow. Light casted shadows, but no shadows cast light.

Watching the two, a small frown came to his face as he observed another being come into the conversation. A bright and bubbly annoyance that reminded the man far too much of a pathetic little ningen traveling in the group of thorns that continually wedged its way into his side far too often. This might hamper his approach. Besides the fact of simply her presence in any conversation being a nuisance, it would could also possibly sew seeds of doubt into his words with an ambassador of the light. The thought of love and good triumphing constantly was too good for many to pass up, so if he did indeed offer his services her counter might lead to division, and while he could kill all three and be done with it, he was not yet ready to drop his plan just do to this. Sephiroth was a patient man, he could wait.

It paid off, the muscles of the first target's twitched and moved to show.. not exactly displeasure, more of a weariness and a need to move away. He wasn't sure just yet what caused it, but he had guesses. Age difference, difference in personality, annoyance of the over motions. Those only named a few. Just a few more minutes... and his plan was set in motion. A soft smirk came to his features, making all the civilians around him ten times more weary. Ignoring them, he watched his first target stalk off to another location, alone. Perhaps if he played this right, he could use this pawn to get the other. If not, well one pawn would be enough and the other disposable and vice versa. If persuasion did not work, he could simply end the existence of this pawn and work on coercing the other. Neither were really needed, but they might be helpful. At the least they would be of interest if kept alive.

As he moved away, he took notice of the last figure to approach the group he had been observing.. the man in red. Something told Sephiroth to watch this man, not out of interest like the other two but as of caution. He could possibly throw a wrench into his plan. perhaps he would observe him another time, but for now he already had plans. Moving in the direction he had seen the armored one move in, he smirked slightly at the sight of his prey. he knew how to be elusive at least. Following him, he waited until they reached an area where the crowd was thinnest and there were less witnesses before making his presence known.

Schooling his features into those of impassiveness, the ex SOLDIER addressed the man. "A lost warrior seeking a slot in existence. A rare sight. Though one is curious.. what type of slot is a warrior such as yourself molded for?" Sephiroth mused, having moved his pace so he right next to the man instead of trailing behind, never gazing directly at him but instead impassivley forward. His response would deem what happened next, and would quite possibly be the key to this man's survival.. or his death.

So sacrifice yourself, and let me have what's left.
I know that I can find the fire in your eyes.
I'm going all the way, get away, please.

You take the breath right out of me.

                                                    Lightning was starting to get irritated, not really by the people, but the fact she'd been blown into that cursed doorway and now she was here, two weird, non-human beings at each other's throats, the other two really seemed to be nice people that wanted to help. She wanted to get on the other two for being hot heads, but she really didn't want to get into a fight with either of them in her condition. She wanted to sit down, that was about it.

                                                    She wrapped her arm around her midsection, she was pretty sure that her ribs were cracked, or broken, and she was surprised she wasn't healing as fast as she should have been. It was hurting her to be standing, and she looked back at the building past the beach... they were pretty fair away, walking in sand was going to suck. "I wish I had a chocobo," she muttered, sure that none of these people would know what she was talking about, but if they did, then maybe they were from her world after all.

                                                    Light looked down at the kid with them, and she saw that he was used to giving orders, though he was kind about it. Maybe where he came from it was a normal thing. He wouldn't be the first kid to get tossed into fighting, Sora was probably a little older then Hope was, and her little protege had to learn fast.

                                                    "I'm with the kid, I need to sit down, if you guy want to fight on your own, I don't care, but I don't want any part of it. Come on kid, Tifa if you want to come..."
                                                    Her gaze went to the other two, saying if they wanted to hang out with them, they were going to have to chill out... or she would make them. Even if she was injured, with one call she had a ten foot eidolon on her side... they'd better not mess with her... or the kid. She wouldn't tell the other two they couldn't come, but they would behave.

                                                    She hurt way too much to give into their crap. She slowly started walking, the sand that was stuck to her making it pretty uncomfortable. She really didn't have any idea how she was going to get all that way if someone didn't follow her... oh well, it wasn't like she hadn't gone on her own before... the Arumat guy seemed okay, but the other one, Light could feel malcontent coming off of her in waves... the same kind of feeling she got looking at Galenth Dysley...

                                          It was strange. He thought death would be worse. But here, at the hands of his son, it all seemed to come full circle. All the taunts, all the jives. All the putting him down. Maybe Tidus had finally understood what his father was trying to get out of him. Jecht wanted his son to prove him wrong, to do better than he wanted. And by beating him, by showing he was better, it seemed to give the man a sense of peace. As if what he did was finally proving to be right. "Good. That's right. You are my son, after all." was the last thing he remembered saying before dissolving into Pyreflies.

                                          But the sending had sent him... somewhere besides the Farplane. And had been a few days ago.

                                          "Oh c'mon, you're kidding right?" "Sorry 'Great' Jecht, no more rum for you tonight." Another typical night for one of the best sportsmen that had lived. Here he wanted to go drinking, but the damn barman had decided to cut him off. And it wasn't a good idea to cut him off from the liquor tit. Grumbling quietly to himself, being able to hold his temper back from wanting to slug the man, the burly male managed, quite miraculously, to stand on his own two feet. He had no clue how much time, or drink, had passed, but the numerous jugs around his stool were a less than satisfying reminder of what he was doing. Getting piss drunk.

                                          All the mattered was trying to maintain his balance as the drunkard old sportsman stumbled outside, nearly tripping over the welcome mat on the way out. "Pfah! Wh-Who needs 'em anyway?! I'm the Great Jecht!" the drunk roared aloud, as if to curse the moon for shining at him. He was gonna fight the moon, that was his to do list. And that list was pretty short. Then again, this was a drunk list. So not only was he gonna fight the moon, he was gonna punch a wall into candy. "You should be ashamed!" a voice yelled at him, bloodshot eyes quickly darting around to find the voice. It was a little old lady, and one he didn't know. Luckily, and this was a big luckily for the granny, he didn't like hitting women. It was against his 'code'. Don't hit women, don't hurt your kids, but damn near hurt anyone that tries to take the first two away from you.

                                          Even drunk he had some, albeit broken, sense of right and wrong. "Yeah... keep telling yourself that gran." The Great Drunk said, waving his fist at her like he was an old man who couldn't fight. He could, and he could do a damn good job of it. But not drunk. Last time he fought drunk, he punched a Shoopuf, because he thought it was a monster. He swore not to drink after that, but tonight he simply lost his self control. And he didn't like it one bit. The small rational, undrunk, part of his brain wanted to beat him for this. What would his son do if he saw his dad, the one who he hated with a passion, wandering around like a damn idiot drunk? The thought was sickening, and it needed to go.

                                          "Bah, wha' do they know?!" he thought aloud, his family and parents in his mind. This world was fake, yet he didn't know that. He had a 'real' family, not the imaginary one he had now. But he didn't know that. Hell he'd died and been sent. He had retreated to Zion to try and collect his thoughts, but all he had done was drink himself into a stupor. He didn't like a damn thing about it, and the worst part of this? He'd done it to himself.

                                          That was a few hours ago, or at least he thought it was, and the buzz had left him. It was actually ten hours ago when he wandered out of the bar, and started wandering. Now all that remained was the mind wrenching headache that refused to go away. Hangovers, how he hated that. This was another reason he had quit drinking, the hangovers were a b***h. "Damn... I gotta remember not to do this anytime soon." Jecht thought aloud, rubbing the back of his neck as he walked around Zion, the scars and tattoo clearly visible to those that were looking, but he seemed lost. The world was wrong, and he knew it. This wasn't Spira, nor was it Sin. So where was it? It couldn't be Dream Zanarkand, because that would imply Sin, but he would know that.

                                          "So... where the heck am I?" he asked the air, as if expecting an answer from the empty area around him.Wandering around lost, and confused, the 'Great' Jecht quickly caught site of a familiar site. Red coat. 'No... Can't be.' he thought to himself, bare feet meeting the ground as the burly man walked over to the sight before him. "Ha ha! Us old dogs just don't know when to quit, do we?" His gloved hand met Auron's right shoulder, a grin on his face before he noticed the other person. That was the Al Bhed kid that Tidus was with. Not Yuna, the other one. The annoying bubbly one. If Auron and this kid were here, would Tidus be here too? Maybe he and his could have a real brawl then.Man on man, no Aeon magic to get in the way. No Yu Yevon to distract them. A real fight to see which of them were best.

                                          The city was so strange. Without hesitating for very long, she and the entirety of the party had gone through the odd looking portal in order to follow Count Waltz through. She wasn't completely sold on the dark-purple portal that looked so ominous being safe. She half suspected that they would all get swallowed up and dropped various places along the way. But by some strange means, they had all arrived on the other side, safe and relatively sound. If anyone was harmed, they certainly hadn't made the notion very important.

                                          She had come along way from her fields and her goats. She really had no reason at all to go along with these people other than the fact that she thought it was right. Arco even agreed with her in this case. Her friend-squirrel stayed with her the entire journey, usually taking refuge in her small hood at her back that would never have fit over her head and her horn-like buns that protruded from her head. She just had this feeling that it was right for her to go along with them. She used the excuse that this was all for the sake of her goats, but there was something else-something more. They were going to do something great... Or maybe it was the fact that she felt bad for them. They were all a bunch of kids and one man, who wasn't very familiar with the world at all. It was like her responsibility.

                                          And now, now they were on the other side or what she could presume was the other side. It was a town of ghosts, small floating spirits. Most of them spoke about their time, taking the mineral powder that was actually bad for them. The blue spirits were male and female spirits were red. They could be interacted with like any other person unless one focused on the fact that they were a ball of light. Perhaps this was more like a limbo stage rather than anything else. The people still seemed so human. They could even buy items and weapons from these people. The world was a mysterious place after all... It didn't make sense why certain people could use magic and some could not while some that could use magic died and others did not...

                                          They had all split up to explore the town. She no longer had any intention on hanging out with Salsa or Beat, who she swore cheated at cards. Maybe she was just bad since she lost to children. They had clearly demonstrated that they could take care of themselves. As long as March was around, the trio would certainly be all right. She looked over to catch a glance at the rest of them. Jazz and Falsetto didn't say it, but she could feel the heaviness still lingering there. Claves's death was a blow to them all, but those two most of all. She had no right to intrude upon their friendship even though they were the people closest to her age... She still felt separate from them, which was why she played cards with the ten year olds from time to time.

                                          However, Viola caught sight of something strange. Perhaps it was the strange place she was in that seemed to make all the color drain away. She looked back, but she didn't notice anyone else making a fuss over it... not that she saw anyone at all. Chopin had gone on his own, and she was sure Allegretto was with Polka if not with Beat as well... They all had their niche in the world, and she just sort of tagged along. Separate as she might feel sometimes, she was still glad she did. She was caught up in a sort of whirlwind, but she didn't regret it for a moment. She really loved the people she was with. She learned a lot, probably more than she might have wished, but she felt fulfilled. And it wasn't like she was truly alone. She had Arco.

                                          Attributing an odd sort of brightly saturated portal to being a strange aspect of the town, she walked through. She expected to see more spirits, but there were people now. She was surprised at this. She turned around to see the light colored town she had been walking through. It was gone. Her mouth was parted in surprise as she said, "Polka? Jazz?" She walked back through, but she did not return anywhere the least bit familiar. She was merely surrounded by slow moving earth like she was beneath the ground.

                                          Viola began to walk swiftly until she recognized a familiar golden design and tail coat. No one else she knew wore such an outfit or had a baton on hand. Relief washed over her as she called out, "Frederic!" She jogged lightly towards him, half afraid that it wouldn't really be him, just someone else with an eerily similar demeanor and attire. Fortunately, his features were all the same. She was not alone. The relieved words echoed in her thoughts.

                                          Mild concern laced her tone, "I lost the others..." She explained, not so much worried that they would be in any danger without either of them since they were all versatile fighters. However, she could see them taking precious time out of their journey to find the two of them. This was of course assuming that he was lost as well. If he happened to know where they were and were able to guide them back, by all means, he was welcome to lead the way.

                                        Tifa had to admit that the five of them probably looked very strange on this beach. One of them wore next to nothing aside from metallic armor. Another one of them seemed to have strange garb and a non-human look about him as if his ears did not stand out enough. Those two alone seemed rather menacing in Tifa's eyes, dangerous in a way that made Vincent appear dangerous. However, he was fairly quiet, composed, and usually quite kind even if he didn't directly appear to be. And of course there were the other two, one woman, who showed up injured on the beach and a teenager-the youngest among them.

                                        What to do about them... Even going to an inn seemed strange. Surely they could all fit in one, but they might attract strange stares. Not to mention, there were five of them. They usually broke up into trios, pairs, and fours at the moment if they were uneven a bit. The lot of them seemed to be an odd congregation that would likely garner suspicion at this point, especially due to the more intimidating members that stood near them.

                                        Tifa was very tempted to just leave the group. However, that was very against her nature, mostly against leaving someone younger than her as well as someone who was recently injured. Ironically, that cut out the more menacing people of their collected peoples. But then again, none of them knew each other... Well, Sora seemed to know her. She didn't know Sora, and he seemed rather dejected at least for a moment, that she didn't return the familiar feelings. Guilt rose up in her throat because she might have forgotten someone, but she didn't usually meet with many people his age. She either spoke to people nearly 20 years old or people that appeared to be under 10 years old.

                                        She affirmed, "Let's go to an inn then." This way, Lightning could get her rest, and she could learn more about this boy that she apparently did not remember. Her gaze circled the rest of them. There was no need to seek confirmation. However, she silently sided with T-elos's idea. They could all state whom or what they were looking for, either a group of people, person, or a location. They could split the information among the five and then split up into two or so groups to cover the most distance without actually putting someone alone. Seeing how Lightning was banged up, they likely could not afford to move around alone in case danger might come upon them.

                                        The martial artist followed after Lightning, who had taken off after suggesting Sora and herself to follow her. She looked to Arumat and T-elos, extending a silent invitation to them as well. She did not expect that they should stick together for long. The five of them traveling in a group seemed to be over-doing it. They all seemed like fighters. Well, she wasn't sure about Sora... She knew he could heal, which was more than enough.

                                        Tifa wanted to keep an eye on the injured woman, who seemed to be pushing herself to aid her friends. There was just something familiar about the act that tugged at her heartstrings. She knew someone like that. Perhaps that was part of the reason she didn't feel like leaving her alone in the state she was... Familiar bright blue eyes. If she hadn't lived next to Cloud for all these years, she might have said that he had a little sister out there. After that she looked to Sora and smiled. She still felt bad that she didn't remember him. Perhaps they had met before, and she was just busy or something. He probably wouldn't miss her gaze settling upon him with great curiosity. There wasn't any ill-intent, just simple curiosity.

                                        She called to attention and gestured out, "Blackberry Inn." She silently implied they should all head there if they intended on going together. It was all up to them in the end. She saw Lightning at the very least very likely headed for the particular establishment.

                                                                          Before Rikku could get her two cents in it seemed that she was losing members of her group. Kain seemed to be a nice guy but perhaps he had some sort of pain brewing inside of his heart? Either way it seemed that Terra was going to help the man. "Hey! Kain! Terra thanks for the help!" She wanted to know that they were appreciated , because even someone to talk to was rather nice in these sort of situations. She just wished someone would come along... Rikku." Rang in her ears.

                                                                          Her eyes seemed to trail over to the source as she nearly had a heart attack. Well first the complete shock had to wash over her as she was certain that Auron was gone to the Farplane. She stuttered out her his name,"A-a-a-a-auron?!" As she walked up to the man cautiously only to grasp a nearby stick and then took a few jabs at him, to make sure he was really there. When the stick bowed due to the contact her eyes shot wide as she realized this was the ole samurai!! "Auron!!! " Her body literally flew through the air as she pounced the man. Her arms wrapped around his torso as her face met his chest."You''re okay, I knew you couldn't be gone...." She said as she hugged him a little tighter, everyone was sad to see Auron go back then, sure he was a toughie but she enjoyed his company!

                                                                          A obvious surprised squeak sounded as Jecht seemed to come up without making much noise. His presence caused Rikku jump back from embracing Auron, after all she hadn't seen anyone familiar and then poof Auron! Her eyes scanned Jecht as she seemed to furrow her brow, trying to remember who he was...wait wasn't he Tidus's dad!? "Old man?! Wait I mean, Tidus's pops?! " She asked as she seemed to hop back and forth from one foot to another. She was so excited to see one face she knew really well and a second she sorta knew. Though her thoughts seemed to scan, there was no one else and she hadn't a clue to where Kaine and Terra had gone.

                                                                          She then set both her hands on her hip and pointed at Auron, "Don't ever whooshy vanish again! Ya big meanie!..." She said with a scowl on her face, purely playful of course as she then grinned massively and her eyes closed,"Good to see ya though! " She then looked to Jecht and was half tempted to poke him but he was a bit scary, so she would wait for later.

                                                                          Rikku then crossed her arms and started to circle the two men, tapping her lip with a contemplating smile. "Well guys, seems we are all clnafat yht mucd " She eventually came back in front of the guys and tilted her head patting her cheek with a sole finger,"Well I have yet to see Yunnie or Paine, wait... you do you two know Paine? Wah! Never mind! I Haven't seen Tidus since he poofed and wooshed like Auron did...BUUUT! Don't get down guys! After all you both are hear so that means Tidus, Yunnie, and the group could be here too! So we just gotta keep on moving! " She spun around and raised her hand in the air, "Forward march!!" She took a few steps only to look back with a embarrassed grin ,"I am not too good at this leading thing...do you guys wanna take over?" She asked as she seemed to try a pout face, maybe it would work?! She had every right to try after all!

                                          The man had descended on to the ground, sure that there was no way that he would be followed. They could try, but if he did not desire to be found, he would not be. Besides, the one he wanted to avoid the most, seemed utterly distracted by her entire situation with the arrival of a familiar companion. Besides, there was also Terra, who was about her age in his eyes. They could remain as traveling companions. He was not comfortable with such a large group nor bright figures for the moment. He desired quite, thoughtful solitude to which the blond, skimpy-clothing-clad female could not easily fulfill from what he had observed thus far of her.

                                          He glanced behind him a few times just to ensure that he was not followed by any of them. He was sure, however, that he would hear Rikku before she even approached. There would be suitable warning signs to keep him alert and distant from her current presence. Terra, he might have enjoyed the company of, but he could not stand such blinding go-luckiness. Gentle kindness was painful enough, like pouring salt upon his wounds... Rikku was the sulfuric equivalent.

                                          Kain little sensed the encroaching presence. It was quiet and meticulous, easing his vast presence so that the dragoon could not tell he was even there at all... Not until he was close enough. The dragoon was unnerved by this, but he did not push it away. It was a relief compared to the immense explosion of Rikku even if he found himself suspicious of the unrelenting, cautious power. He did not look over his shoulder, but he got the feeling that this man was the one he saw from before. He did not need to catch the silvery hair from his peripheral vision to know. There was something about the smooth tone that seemed fitting, almost haunting with its gliding perfection.

                                          He breathed in, listening to his words. He could not find the power to shut out the voice at all. It burned into his thoughts as if he were whispering the words to his core or perhaps speaking the words that his mind could not form. It was an odd sensation, familiar and nostalgic. The other man carried himself with experience and thus a great sense of charisma. It was fortunate that Kain did not look over for the green cat-slit eyes might have seared dangerously into his thoughts. Instead, he continued to look forward because he did not feel any desire to look at the man, only at his unknown and unfamiliar surroundings.

                                          Kain had slowed his walk a bit, thinking that this man was dangerous. He knew instinctively that to get into a fight with this man would be a mistake. However, he did not grab his weapon. He believed that he could have revealed it at any time. There was no need. After all, the man only spoke a few key words to get Kain's attention. Despite how paranoid the dragoon was, he was not so anxious for battle that he displayed himself so impulsively. He waited to hear what the man had to say. A part of him was lamenting, trying to get him to escape. This was dangerous and wrong. However, another part of him-freshly buried seemed to hold him there. He wanted to know and hear this man out... Perhaps seek answers from this man if no one else.

                                          He returned his words as cautiously, "A rare sight? It is in my experience that many knights and soldiers lose their way after a battle has been fought, especially when it has been won..." The echoed of his final battle against Zeromus, who had once controlled those that controlled him-Kain. He had already lost his way before then, yet at least with Zeromus as a goal, he could fight for something. And now that it was over, there was nothing left to fight for... nothing he felt like he could actively do to seek redemption.

                                          "I am a simple warrior and nothing else... A warrior is molded to fight. But with no war and no battle, what is a warrior then?" He asked, knowing the answer already-Useless. He was seeking his purpose now... He had nothing except betrayal and guilt. He was looking for a way to somehow make up for what he had done, knowing all the while that his attempts would be for naught.

"I said I'd live my life for both of us...
Easy to make that promise."

The earth comes reeling
The curtain calls my name
I'm not afraid
And I know
You may not miss me
But I am not ashamed
The choice I made

                                                        ████ ▌▌▌▌████ ▌▌▌▌████ ▌▌▌▌████ ▌▌▌▌████ ▌▌▌▌████


                                                          Cloud saw that look that Yuffie gave him, and he started to wonder if she hadn't gotten the text message he had. He knew Vincent was okay, yeah it was surprising to see him there, but not to see him alive. The little ninja seemed really mad at them for not telling her something, and if he had to guess, he guessed it was because he didn't know. Maybe she'd forgotten to turn her phone on again... or charge it with how often she'd been out lately.

                                                          They would have to talk to her later, because with the unknown girl in their group now, it was best to find out about her. She seemed harmless enough, but they'd thought that about Yuffie as well, right before she stole all their materia in the middle of a quest to save the world. No pressure or anything... To be fair, Yuffie was a great asset to their team, he just could have liked to know that she was going to rip them off before hand.

                                                          He started after Yuffie, noticing that Vincent had stepped in after him, his head hung a little lower then usual. "You had to know she would be angry with you."

                                                          "Yes, but I didn't think this angry."

                                                          "We've all been worried, Yuffie left every day, trying anywhere she thought you might be hiding. She said she was treasure hunting, but why would she need to know information on you to find materia. She wasn't the only one looking, but you didn't see her face when I had to tell her after the first search we didn't find anything but your Cerberus Relief."

                                                          "You gave it to her."

                                                          "It seemed right."
                                                          Vincent's hand came down on Cloud's shoulder and he lightly squeezed it, which surprised the swordsman. That was the most emotion he'd ever shown the blond.

                                                          "Thank you Cloud, for everything."

                                                          "Friend's help each other out... right? But you should know... I think Yuffie might-"


                                                          Vincent stepped around him and put his hand up to stop the comment. "If there is something Yuffie wants me to know, then she will tell me. But right now, I owe her an apology."

                                                          "Sure," Cloud let Vincent let him go in ahead of him, and he sighed, looking up at the sky. "I wonder where you are," he whispered, thinking of his best friend... hoping beyond hope that she was alright. If she'd been brought here too, then he needed to find her.
