Chapter 2: Enchanted Dominion, part 1

Inside a large pure green-coloured grassy forest with dozens of tall trees, patches of bushes, wild flowers, small rocky cliffs and a large clear lake in the middle of the forest near a field clearing, everything is peaceful and silent until the field clearing started to shake a little violently (while dozens of leaves on the trees fell and landed on the shaking ground) before an oval-shaped portal of light and lightning formed and appear near one of the bottom of a small cliff on the field clearing and Terra make his way out of the portal of light, still clad in his Keyblade armor. Terra’s Keyblade armor then glowed brightly and vanished into thin air as he walked forward and stopped in his tracks near the edge of the field clearing to glance down at the lake in front of him.

Suddenly Terra heard some sounds coming from behind him and as he summoned forth his Earthshaker Keyblade while turning around to see what’s behind him, he saw dozens of small, dark blue-coloured creatures emerged out of the ground and surrounds him from almost all sides. “Monsters! The ones the Master mentioned to me, Aqua and Beaufort before we leave. These must be the Unversed.” said Terra to himself before he charge toward the swarm of small Floods Unversed and began fighting them.

As Terra started to fight and destroy some of the Floods Unversed with his Keyblade on the field clearing, another oval-shaped portal of light and lightning formed and appear in another part of the forest (which is not far from where Terra and the swarm of Floods Unversed is) before Kallima make her way out of the portal into the forest and stopped in her tracks to lifted her head to look up at the blue sky and at the forest around her before her Keyblade armor glowed brightly then vanished into thin air.

Kallima then heard the sound of someone fighting something coming from her right and she quickly summoned forth her New Moon Keyblade, turned to her right to run toward the field clearing and she soon saw Terra fighting and destroying all of the small Floods Unversed before several different-looking semi-large and large dark blue-coloured Unversed formed and appear in thin air around Terra (which is Scrappers and Bruisers Unversed). When Kallima saw the Scrappers and Bruisers Unversed formed and appear around Terra, she quickly charge toward Terra and the swarm of Scrappers and Bruisers Unversed surrounding him and she swung and slashed down on some of the Scrappers and Bruisers with her Keyblade (while Terra had a surprised look on his face when he saw Kallima suddenly appearing and helped him out in destroying some of the Unversed before he fight and destroy the Unversed with her).

After both Terra and Kallima are done in fighting and destroying the swarm of Scrappers and Bruisers Unversed on the field clearing around them, Terra then turned to glance at Kallima. “Who are you and why do you have a Keyblade?” Terra asked Kallima as he glance down at the Keyblade she hold in her right hand.

“My name is Kallima, one of Master Yen Sid apprentices. He sent me out to helped apprentices of Master Eraqus’s in eliminating these Unversed creatures and the forces of darkness before they could hurt the princesses of hearts and the innocent peoples.” Kallima told and explain to Terra.

“Now that I’ve told and explain to you who I am, it’s my turn to ask you a question now. Are you one of Master Eraqus’s apprentices?” Kallima asked Terra.

“That’s right, I am. My name’s Terra. It’s nice to meet you, Kallima. And I’m sorry for my rude question to you earlier.” said Terra before he hold out his left hand to Kallima for an apologetic handshake. Kallima glance down at his outstretch left hand for a few seconds before she hold out and placed her left hand in his and they shake hands.

“Nice to meet you too, Terra. And I accept your apology.” said Kallima kindly to Terra before both she and Terra ceased shaking hands and pull their hands back. Both Terra and Kallima then noticed 2 Floods Unversed fleeing away from them deep into the forest out of the corners of their eyes.

“Oh no, you two don’t!” said Terra as he and Kallima turned and run after the 2 Floods Unversed.

Both Terra and Kallima chased after the 2 Floods Unversed out of the forest and onto a long grey-coloured bridge before they jumped, raised and swung their Keyblades down on the 2 Floods Unversed and destroyed them. After both Terra and Kallima destroyed the 2 Floods Unversed, they stood up, lifted their heads to look up and they saw a large white-coloured, blue roof castle standing at the distance end of the bridge in front of them.

Both Terra and Kallima then lowered their heads to look away from the castle and they saw the back figure of a tall and thin-looking woman wearing a long black-coloured robe from the top of her head (which also had 2 black horns on it) down to her toes, holding a long wooden staff with a circular-shaped pale green-coloured orb at the top of the staff in her left hand (with a single black stone, golden ring on her finger) as she stands on the bridge a few feet in front of them, staring at the large castle as well. Both Terra and Kallima dismissed their Keyblades and approach the black robe woman, who slowly turned around to glance at them when she heard the sound of their approaching footsteps (and they saw that her face is pale and greenish in colour with pale yellow eyes and red
lips).

“What’s this……… Why aren’t you two asleep?” said the black robe woman in a feign surprise tone of voice to Terra and Kallima (who stopped in their tracks in front of her). “That fool Flora cast a spell to put everyone in this castle into a deep, deep slumber.”

“Who are you?” Terra asked the black robe woman.

“Why, I am Maleficent……… as all who dwell in this kingdom would know.” said the black robe woman after she introduced herself to Terra and Kallima. “Now you must reciprocate the introductions. Who are you two?”

“I’m Terra.” said Terra as he introduced himself to Maleficent, who nodded before she glance at Kallima.

“And I’m Kallima.” said Kallima. “Do you know anything about those monsters- the ones who appeared and attacked me and Terra in the forest?” Kallima asked Maleficent, who turned to her right to look away from them, walked forward and stopped in her tracks near the edge of the bridge to look at the distant fields, mountains and sky.

“Hmph. Now why would I give a thought to creatures so base……… so inconsequential?” said Maleficent.
Terra snorted in agreement. “They are base, that’s for sure.” said Terra before he asked Maleficent another question. “Anyway, I’m looking for someone. Ever heard of a man named Xehanort?”

“He’s looking for Master Xehanort, another old friend of my grandfather and Master Eraqus? But why?” thought Kallima as she glance at Terra with a confused look on her face.

“That name is not familiar to me. Is he an outsider, like the 2 of you?” said Maleficent before she trailed off into silence to think back about something then she turned around to glance back at them. “Oh, but wait……… I do remember seeing someone leaving the castle.” Maleficent told them both.

“Could it be Master Xehanort? Tell me, what was he doing there?” demanded Terra.

“I couldn’t say……… I can only be certain that he was not from this kingdom.” said Maleficent in a feigned sad tone of voice to Terra, who sighed and lowered his head in dismay. “If you’re curious, go into the castle and see for yourself. There- the entrance is past this bridge.” Maleficent told Terra as she turned to glance at the castle, same goes for Terra and Kallima.

“Thanks.” said Terra as he run down the bridge toward the castle, with Kallima running and following closely behind him.

“Perhaps he did speak, about imprisoning “the light”………” said Maleficent suddenly to both Terra and Kallima (who instantly had a suspicious feeling brewing in her mind and heart about Maleficent), who stopped running and turned around to glance back at her.

“What do you mean by that, Maleficent?” asked Kallima suspiciously at Maleficent.

“The light” could be so many things. Could he have meant Princess Aurora?” replied Maleficent, ignoring Kallima’s words.

“Princess Aurora………” said both Terra and Kallima to themselves before they resumed running down the bridge toward the castle without looking back and they didn’t see bright, greenish-yellow coloured flames appeared and enveloped Maleficent before both she and the flames vanished into thin air.
Both Terra and Kallima run until they reached the end of the bridge, arrived in front of the castle’s entrance before they opened the door and went into the castle.

Once Terra and Kallima are inside the castle, they look around and saw that they’re standing inside a large and empty multi-coloured audience/throne room which had 2 tall-looking golden-coloured throne chairs far in front of them against the wall at the other end of the room. Both Terra and Kallima then noticed a staircase to their right near the wall which leads further up into the castle and they approach and walked up the staircase, walked down a hallway then they walked up and walked down several more staircases and hallways (while fighting off some Floods, Scrappers, Bruisers, Thornbites and Red Hot Chili Unverseds along the way) until they arrived in front of a door completely sealed and enveloped with a kind of black and purple-coloured aura of darkness which prevented anyone from entering the room at one of the very top tower of the castle. Both Terra and Kallima glance and nodded to each other before they jumped back from the sealed door, summoned forth and pointed their Keyblades at the sealed door to shot two bright beams of lights at the black and purple-coloured aura of darkness to dispel it away.

After both Terra and Kallima uses their Keyblades to dispel the black and purple-coloured aura of darkness away from the door, they went into the room and saw that the room is quite large and multi-coloured with a rectangular, green cloth table with some unlit candles and a small weighing scale standing on it, a wooden cabinet standing next to the table while the table and the cabinet leaned against the wall to their right, an empty fireplace in the corner of the room with a secret opened door inside leading up into another tower room and a small mirror/make-up table leaning against another wall near the fireplace. Both Terra and Kallima then turned to their left and they saw a very beautiful, fair-skinned, long blonde-haired woman wearing a long-sleeve blue-coloured dress is sleeping deeply on a large, blue-coloured single-sized bed with a dark blue-coloured blanket with spiral golden patterns on it covering over her, a large purple-coloured curtain with the same spiral golden-coloured patterns on it partially surrounds her and the bed she’s lying on and they both felt the warm, kind and familiar feeling of light emanating out from within her.

“Do you sense it, Terra? The warm and kind feeling of light from within her?” Kallima asked Terra. “Which must mean that this girl is one of the princesses of hearts.” thought Kallima silently in her mind.

“Yeah, I can feel it, Kallima. It doesn’t just feel warm and kind, it also feels familiar………” replied Terra.

“Yes, the both of you are right about it. Her heart is filled with light, not the slightest touch of darkness.” said Maleficent suddenly from behind Terra and Kallima and they immediately turned around to glance at her when they heard her voice. “……… Just the kind of heart I need.”
“For what?” asked Terra.

“Why do you need her heart for, Maleficent?” asked Kallima.

“Just imagine with me, the most glorious of futures……… the both of you.” replied Maleficent. “Seven of the purest hearts, each overflowing with light. When collected and brought together, they grant the power to rule over all worlds.”

“What do you mean by that?” said Terra, not understanding what Maleficent meant.

“Oh my god, isn’t it obvious, Terra? She wanted us to plunder, gathered and brought these seven purest hearts of light and hand them over to her so she could have the power to rule over all worlds.” Kallima said/explain to Terra in a slightly frustrated and grim tone of voice.

“Precisely, the girl is correct. Why, those large keys that you two hold……… The Keyblade, is it called?” Maleficent asked them both.

Both Terra and Kallima gasped in surprise/shocked when they heard Maleficent uttered the “Keyblade” word and they quickly summoned forth their Keyblades.

“Where did you learn that name?” Terra asked Maleficent.

“Those trinkets that you two have is the only way to obtain the hearts.” said Maleficent as she ignored Terra’s question.

“That’s enough of your word games already, Maleficent!” snapped Kallima.

“Where is Master Xehanort?” demanded Terra.

“Impudence will get the 2 of you nowhere, young ones.” said Maleficent coldly at Terra and Kallima. “If the two of you wish to learn more, either one of you must retrieve the heart of Aurora.”

“And why would we ever want to do that?” snapped Terra.

“It’s not a matter of “why”, but of will.” said Maleficent before she smiled evilly at Terra then the pale green orb on her staff started to glowed bright green and as she waved her right hand over the glowing orb, her body started to glowed bright green as well. “In your heart, there is darkness just waiting to be awakened.”

As both the orb and Maleficent herself started to glowed bright green, Terra started to struggle and grunted in pain as his body started to glowed bright green as well. “I don’t know what you’re talking about.” said Terra in denial at Maleficent’s words.

“Terra, what’s wrong?” said Kallima as she glance at Terra worriedly.

“Perhaps not yet……… But I have power over sleep.” said Maleficent. “And I can awaken what’s inside you………Then you will be free to be who you truly are.”

Kallima gasped when she saw and realised what Maleficent is doing to Terra and she quickly dismissed her Keyblade, approach and placed her hands on Terra’s shoulders. “Terra, listen to me! You must fight and snap out of whatever dark magic she’s casting on you to awaken the darkness within you! You mustn’t give in!” Kallima told Terra worriedly.

“Stay out of this, you meddlesome girl!” snapped Maleficent as she briefly waved her left hand at Kallima to forcefully yanked her away from Terra before Maleficent created a barrier of greenish-yellow coloured flames around Kallima.

“No, you can’t do this to him, Maleficent!” protested Kallima.

“I can and I just did, meddlesome girl.” said Maleficent coldly at Kallima. “Now stand there and watched the show.”

Kallima glared angrily at Maleficent through the barrier of flames around her before she turned to glance sadly and helplessly at Terra as he continue to struggle and grunted in pain against Maleficent’s dark magic on him to awaken the darkness within him until the darkness eventually overtook him and he started to hear his Master’s words echoing in his mind.

XXXX

“Remember that darkness lurks in every heart.”

“Darkness is our foe.”

“Would that we could be rid of it.”

“You must destroy it.”

“Push the darkness down- give it no quarter in your heart.”

XXXX

Eventually Terra ceased struggling, fell silent and slumped his body down a little before he slowly straighten his body, lifted his head and opened his eyes, which now had a pale and blank look in them (and which make Kallima gasped for the second time). Terra then turned around to glance down at Princess Aurora, raised his Keyblade above Princess Aurora before a bright light appear and glowed at the tip of his Keyblade. A few seconds later, a bright circular orb of light appear and floated out of Princess Aurora’s body and flew straight toward Maleficent’s outstretched hands before she surrounds it with greenish-yellow flames.

“Here it is……… Just what I’ve waited for.” said Maleficent as she chuckled and glance happily at the floating orb of light in her hands.

“No! That light isn’t yours to take and keep, Maleficent!” Kallima cried out at Maleficent, who ignored her before she heard a gasp and a deep intake of breath and she glance at Terra and saw that he’s snapped out of Maleficent’s dark magic and the darkness within him (while the barrier of flames around her dimmed down then vanished into thin air).

“To think that all he spoke of was and will be true.” said Maleficent to herself before she put the orb of light safely within her black robe while Kallima approach both Terra and Princess Aurora.

“What? How did I………?” said Terra to himself before he glance down at Princess Aurora and gasped in shock before he immediately turned around to glance at Maleficent. “What did I just do? What did YOU do to me?” demanded Terra.

“You speak as if I pulled some invisible strings.” said Maleficent as she turned to glance at Terra and Kallima. “No, you couldn’t be further from the truth. I simply whispered to the darkness that you already held inside you.”

“How could I do this to her?” said Terra as he turned back and glance sadly down at Princess Aurora while Kallima just watched him sadly. As he did, he saw a brief vision of Ventus lying on his back on the bed in a deep sleep like Princess Aurora.

“Ven?” exclaim Terra.

“Yes……… Now you want to know where Xehanort went.” said Maleficent as she slowly approach Terra and Kallima, who turned around to glance at her. “Well, that I cannot answer. He disappeared into the darkness. But now I know that the Keyblades which you two have is a necessary weapon to gather hearts. Join me, you two. Collect six more hearts of pure light. Then we will rule all the worlds together.”

“No! We refused!” Kallima snarled angrily at Maleficent.

“Kallima’s right, Maleficent.” said Terra as he glared at Maleficent. “You seem to be mixed up. We’re peacekeepers, not tyrants!”

Both Terra and Kallima then summoned forth their Keyblades in preparation to fight Maleficent and take back the orb of light that she kept inside her black robe. But before both Terra and Kallima could do so, they felt the castle suddenly started to shake violently around them and they struggle to maintain their balance while Maleficent isn’t completely bothered by the sudden violent shaking of the castle.

“Hmph……… For peacekeepers, the both of you are off to an exceptionally poor start.” said Maleficent coldly at Terra and Kallima. “Remember this-the darkness cannot be held back by force or strength. Now……… my work here is done, as is yours. Wasn’t there someone that you needed to find and chase?” Maleficent told Terra and Kallima before she started to enveloped herself in green flames.

“Wait!” said Terra.

“Give back Princess Aurora’s heart!” said Kallima.

Both Terra and Kallima charged, jumped and swung their Keyblades down on Maleficent but before their Keyblades could touched her, she immediately vanished into thin air while laughing loudly at them. Both Terra and Kallima then stood up and glance around the room for any sign of Maleficent before they felt another violent shake of the castle.

“The Unversed! They’re gonna bring down the castle! We’ve to do something!” said Terra worriedly to Kallima.

“Right! Come on, Terra!” said Kallima worriedly to Terra (who nodded to her) before they turned around and run out of Princess Aurora’s room, run down the series of hallways and staircases until they arrived and reached the audience/throne room in the castle.

Once Terra and Kallima are back inside the audience/throne room, they saw a large crimson, black and yellow-coloured spindle-wheel Unversed (named Wheel Master) standing in the middle of the room in front of them. Both Terra and Kallima immediately raised their Keyblades, charge toward Wheel Master and they strike and slash down on Wheel Master several times with their Keyblades. The Wheel Master isn’t amused by their attacks and it immediately snared both Terra and Kallima bodies tightly in its yellow thread to prevent them from attacking it.

Both Terra and Kallima struggle to free themselves from the tight yellow threads wrapped tightly around their bodies until they managed to break themselves free from the tight yellow threads, causing the Wheel Master to stagger back in a daze a little before it swung its arms swiftly at Terra and Kallima and knocked them both hard and away from it. They landed hard on the ground, groaned in pain from Wheel Master’s swinging arm attack a little before Kallima raised her New Moon Keyblade above her and Terra to casted Cure magic on them to healed their bruise wounds. After Kallima’s done in healing their bruise wounds, they stood up and Terra jumped and raised his Earthshaker Keyblade above him to give a hard downward strike on Wheel Master while Kallima hold her New Moon Keyblade out in front of her to cast and launch multiple Fire magic at it.

The Wheel Master is even more not amused by Terra and Kallima attacking and injuring it even more and it’s body started to glowed with a dark red aura of anger before it raised it’s body high up into the air then it started to charge and gallop swiftly toward Kallima first and rammed her head on, causing her to cried out in pain and sending her flying far from it before she landed hard on her back on the floor and her Keyblade disappear into thin air.

“Kallima!” yelled Terra in worry/horror when he saw Wheel Master charging and ramming against Kallima before he quickly dodged to his left when he saw Wheel Master turning and charging/galloping straight toward him to knocked him out and it crashed head on against a nearby wall and fell stunned to the floor. Seeing that the Wheel Master is stunned from crashing head on against the wall, Terra charge toward Wheel Master and he proceed to strike down on it multiple times with his Keyblade before he jumped and raised his Keyblade to give Wheel Master another hard downward strike on it to finish it off.

After Terra finished off the Wheel Master Unversed, he dismissed his Keyblade, turned around and run toward Kallima to cast Cure on her to healed her wound (which she thanked him for it) before he helped lifted her up from the floor and they slowly walked back up the series of hallways and staircases and head back into Princess Aurora’s room.

“It’s my fault that her heart was stolen. It was because I was weak……… I’m sorry.” said Terra as he glance sadly down at Princess Aurora.

“You’re not the only one at fault here, Terra. So do I.” said Kallima sadly to Terra. “I could have stop and snap you out of Maleficent’s dark magic and from the darkness within you but she prevented me from doing so.”

“I know, Kallima.” said Terra as he turned to glance at her. “We’ll get her light back, once I’ve learn to stand up against the darkness.”

Kallima nodded to him before they leave Princess Aurora’s room, walked down the series of hallways and staircases, leave the castle and walked on the long bridge.

“Why would Master Xehanort wanted to imprison the light? The purest hearts of light- do they hold the answer?” thought Terra to himself as he and Kallima continue to walked down then started to run down the bridge toward the forest.

Inside a small, empty room in one of the highest tower of the castle, Maleficent watched Terra and Kallima leave the castle through an opened window. “Seven pure hearts of light, each completely void of darkness……… Such a search may take some time.” said Maleficent to herself before she turned away from the window, enveloped herself in green flames and vanished into thin air from the small, empty room.
Chapter 1: Mark of Mastery exam and leaving the Land of Departure

The next morning, Terra, Aqua, Beaufort, Ventus and Josette woke up early before they swiftly got out of their beds, cleaned then dressed themselves up in their usual outfits, left their rooms and they gathered and walked down the hallway together until all 5 of them reached and went into a large throne-like room (which is blue, yellow, pale green and brown in colour with several blue-coloured pillars built on both sides of the large room near the white-coloured walls, a large, circular multi-coloured window on the wall at the back of the room (with streams of sunlight shining through the window into the room) and three tall-looking brown-coloured chairs standing side by side on a wooden podium in the front of the room).

After they step into the large throne-like room, Terra, Aqua and Beaufort immediately walked forward, stopped in their tracks and stand side by side in front of the wooden podium with the three tall-looking chairs standing side by side on it (2 of which had two middle-aged and elderly men sitting on them) while both Ventus and Josette walked forward then moved away from Terra, Aqua and Beaufort, turned and stand with their backs facing one of the pillars standing near the white wall and they stared at their 3 friends.

Both Ventus and Josette then noticed that the elderly man (who’s a slightly dark-skinned, bald-headed, yellow-eyed man with a small goatee beard under his chin, wearing a white-coloured shirt with 2 black-coloured belts tied across the bottom of his shirt, long black pants and black boots on his legs with a long black coat over his shirt, pants and boots and a pair of long white gloves on his hands) sitting on the chair on the left side of the wooden podium is staring silently and sinisterly at them, especially at Ventus (who sighed and quickly look away from the elderly man, same goes for Josette).

A few seconds later, both Ventus and Josette quickly stand at attention when they saw and heard the slightly tan-skinned, long black-haired, brown-eyed middle-aged man (who’s wearing a dark blue-coloured shirt/armor with 2 white-coloured straps which criss-crossed over the front of his shirt/armor, long pale grey-coloured hakama pants and black/grey-coloured boots on his legs, a long white-coloured coat over his shirt/armor, pants and boots while his black hair is tied-up in a short, topknot style behind his head and his face had 2 scars on his right eye and left cheek) stood up from his chair on the right side of the wooden podium, walked forward and stopped in his tracks near the edge of the wooden podium to glance back and forth at 3 of his apprentices standing in front of him before he began speaking to them.

“Today you will be examined for the Mark of Mastery. Not one but three of the Keyblade’s chosen stand here as candidates, but this is neither a competition nor a battle for supremacy. Not a test of wills but a test of hearts. All 3 of you may prevail, or none at all.” said the middle-aged man to Terra, Aqua and Beaufort. “But I’m sure that our guest, Master Xehanort, did not travel all this way to see our youngest prospects in years fall short of the Mark.” added the middle-aged man to them as he glance over his left shoulder at the elderly man named Master Xehanort (who nodded his head in silence) before he glance back at Terra, Aqua and Beaufort. “I trust that all 3 of you are ready?” the middle-aged man asked them.

“Yes, Master Eraqus.” replied Terra, Aqua and Beaufort back to the middle-aged man named Master Eraqus at the same time.

“Then let the examination begin!” said Master Eraqus as he summoned forth his Keyblade (which is a long white, brown and black-coloured Keyblade called “Master Defender”) before he hold his Keyblade, Master Defender close to him and it glowed briefly with white magic. Soon six large orbs of bright lights appeared 1 by 1 out of thin air in the middle of the room and Terra, Aqua and Beaufort turned around and summoned forth their Earthshaker, Rainfell and Vagos Maestus Keyblades. But before they could begin their examination, Master Xehanort waved his right hand a little and Terra, Aqua, Beaufort and Master Eraqus gasped in surprise when they saw some auras of darkness appeared and surrounds the 6 large orbs of lights (while Master Xehanort smirked to himself once he’s done his little work).

Terra, Aqua and Beaufort decided to ignore the auras of darkness surrounding the orbs of lights and they raised their Keyblades, charge toward the orbs of lights and they attacked and destroyed 3 of the orbs of lights (only to have 3 more appearing and replacing the previous 3 orbs of lights). Out of the corners of Terra, Aqua and Beuafort’s eyes, they saw that 2 of the orbs of lights flew away from them and headed straight toward Ventus and Josette.

“Ven! Jo!” Terra, Aqua and Beaufort cried out in worried unison at the both of them.

Both Ventus and Josette swiftly summoned forth their Wayward Wind and Helianthus Keyblades and they swung and destroyed the approaching 2 orbs of lights with their Keyblades.

“Don’t worry about the 2 of us, Terra, Aqua, Beaufort!” said Ventus.

“Ventus’s right! The 3 of you should focus more on your exams instead of us!” said Josette.

“But Ven, Jo, the 2 of you are in danger here! You two should leave and wait in your rooms!” said Aqua worriedly to both Ventus and Josette as she, Terra and Beaufort stood back to back with each other while they glance warily at the orbs of lights surrounding them.

“We refused, Aqua! Both Ventus and I have been waiting and looking forward to this moment!” said Josette as she shake her head at Aqua.

“Josette’s right, Aqua! We wanted to see the 3 of you become Masters! And we’re not going to miss it now!” said Ventus as he nodded his head in agreement to Josette’s words.

“They can take care of themselves, Aqua.” said Terra in a reassuring tone of voice to Aqua. “The 2 of them have been out there training just as hard as the 3 of us.”

“Terra’s right, Aqua. So you don’t have to worry so much for Ven and Jo.” said Beaufort as he nodded his head in agreement to Terra’s words.

“Yeah!” said Ventus and Josette in unison to Aqua before they smiled at Terra and Beaufort.

“Very well, then. Stay sharp, you two!” Aqua told Ventus and Josette.

“Of course we will, Aqua!” said Josette before both she and Ventus immediately charge forward and swung/slash their Keyblades down on the orbs of lights (which started to zig-zag swiftly around the room) alongside Terra, Aqua and Beaufort for the next few minutes until all 5 of them are done in destroying the orbs of lights and they dismissed their Keyblades before Terra, Aqua and Beaufort turned to walked back and stand in their previous spots in front of Master Eraqus while both Ventus and Josette walked then stand in their previous spots near the pillar and blue wall.

“That was unexpected……… but even so, one must keep a still, steady heart even in the most trying of circumstances. It was an excellent test, one which I choose to let unfold.” said Master Eraqus. “Which brings us to your next trial.”

Terra, Aqua and Beaufort nodded in unison to Master Eraqus before they turned around, walked away from Master Eraqus and from each other toward 3 different corners of the room before they summoned forth their Keyblades and turned to faced each other.

“Now, Terra, Aqua and Beaufort, the 3 of you will face each other in combat.” Master Eraqus told them. “Remember, there are no winners- only truths, for when equal powers clashed with each other, their true natures is revealed. Begin!”

At his command, Terra, Aqua and Beaufort charge toward each other and they swung, clashed and defended themselves with their Keyblades multiple times against each other. Aqua then back-flipped herself away from Terra and Beaufort’s downward strike on her before she charge toward Terra, raised and swung her Rainfell Keyblade upward at Terra, who quickly jumped himself backward away from her upward strike before he quickly dodged to his left away from Beaufort’s downward strike on him. Terra gasped a little then narrowed his eyes when he saw both Aqua and Beaufort began to charge toward him and he hold out his left arm in preparation to cast a magic attack on them both. But instead of magic, a small aura of darkness appear and swirled around his left arm and Terra glance down at the small swirling aura of darkness on his arm with a surprise/shock look on his face before he clenched his left hand into a fist to dismiss the aura of darkness swirling around his left arm and he quickly raised his Earthshaker Keyblade to blocked against Aqua and Beaufort’s downward strikes on him.

As Terra, Aqua and Beaufort continue to fight against each other, Master Xehanort started to smiled evilly to himself when he noticed the aura of darkness that appear on Terra’s left arm.

XXXX

A few minutes later………

After their battle, Terra, Aqua and Beaufort stands before Master Eraqus and Master Xehanort (who’s talking in small voices to each other before they turned to glance at them) while both Ventus and Josette stands near the pillar once again.

“We’ve deliberated and reached a decision.” Master Eraqus began saying to them. “Terra, Aqua, Beaufort, the three of you performed commendably. However, only Aqua and Beaufort has shown the Mark of Mastery.”
Terra, Aqua and Beaufort gasped in surprise/shocked unison when they heard what Master Eraqus just said to them before a sad and disappointed look appear on Terra’s face (same goes for Ventus and Josette).

“What? But Master Eraqus………” Josette began saying to Master Eraqus but he cut her off from saying any more words with a serious look on his face and she fell silent, feeling sad for Terra then feeling a little angry at Master Eraqus.

“Terra, you failed to keep the darkness within you sufficiently in check. But there is always next time, that is all.” Master Eraqus told Terra before he look away from him and look at both Aqua and Beaufort, while Master Xehanort turned to his left and walked down the wooden podium. “Aqua, Beaufort, as our 2 newest Keyblade Masters, the both of you are entitled to certain knowledge. Please wait here for further instructions.” Master Eraqus finished talking to them before he turned to his left and walked down the wooden podium behind Master Xehanort and they walked out of the room.

After the 2 Masters left the room, both Aqua and Beaufort turned to glance at Terra with sad/concern looks on their faces while both Ventus and Josette quickly run toward the 3 of them.

“Hey………” said Aqua sadly to Terra.

“Terra, we………” said Beaufort sadly to Terra before he trailed off into silence, not knowing what to say to cheer Terra up.

“Terra, we’re sorry to hear that.” said Ventus sadly to Terra.

“That’s so unfair of Master Eraqus! He knows full well that you’ve been training just as hard as the rest of us for the past few years to be a Keyblade Master! And yet he failed you just because of some small aura of darkness that appear and emanate out of your left arm!” said Josette, feeling annoyed at Master Eraqus.

“Be quiet, Jo!” said Beaufort as he scowled at Josette for saying such accusing words of their Master, causing Josette to glared at Beaufort before she crossed her arms and turned to look away from him.

“The darkness……… Where did it come from?” said Terra to himself before he turned to look away from them.

“I’m sorry. But I need some time alone.” Terra told Aqua, Beaufort, Ventus and Josette before he leave the room without looking back.

“Terra………” said both Aqua and Josette sadly as they, Ventus and Beaufort watched Terra leave them and walked out of the room.

“Let’s just give him some time to himself for now, Aqua, Ven, Jo.” said Beaufort sadly to Aqua, Ventus and Josette.

“I’m going back to my room, Aqua, Beaufort, Ven.” said Josette before she turned and walked away from them and out of the room.

“Hey, Jo! Wait for me!” Ventus called out to her before he walked away from both Aqua and Beaufort after Josette and left the room as well.

Meanwhile, on the staircase near the bottom left side of the room………

After Master Xehanort walked out of the room, he turned to his right to walked down the hallway away from Master Eraqus until he reached and walked down a staircase, where he stopped in his tracks to meet 2 mysterious young people standing/leaning their backs against the wall of the staircase. One of them is a fair-skinned, spiky black-haired, yellow-eyed young guy wearing a long sleeve, black, red and dark blue-coloured shirt, black gloves on his hands, long black pants with a red belt tied over his waist and a pair of red straps criss-crossed under his red belt, dark red-coloured boots on his legs and he hold his black helmet under his right arm while the other one is a slightly tan-skinned, long black-haired, yellow-eyed young girl wearing a white tank top, long dark grey jeans and black flats shoes on her legs with a long black coat over her tank top, jeans and flats and fingerless white gloves on her hands.

“What do you make of Ventus?” Master Xehanort asked the young, spiky black-haired guy.

“He ain’t gonna cut it.” replied the young spiky black-haired guy in a sinister tone of voice to Master Xehanort. “Somebody’s gotta break that loser in.”

“Not here, you won’t. I have to keep up appearances. Come, you two.” said Master Xehanort to the young black-haired guy and girl.

“Of course we know that, uncle Xehanort.” said the young black-haired girl to Master Xehanort as both she and the young spiky, black-haired guy step away from the wall and the young guy slid his helmet on over his head.

“He just needs a little incentive to leave home.” said the young guy to Master Xehanort before both he and the long, black-haired young girl walked down the stairs with Master Xehanort.

Meanwhile, outside the castle………

After Terra leave the room, he turned to his right to walked down a hallway, walked out of the castle before he walked down then sat down on the bottom steps of the staircase and staring at the large forecourt field in front of him with a silent and concern look on his face, thinking back about the aura of darkness that suddenly appear and emanate out from his left arm.

“There’s darkness within me……… So what does that matter?” said Terra out loud to himself. “I know that I’m strong enough to hold it back.”

“Yes……… You’re indeed strong. The darkness is nothing to fear.” said an elderly man’s voice suddenly from the top of the stairs above Terra and he quickly stood up from the stairs, turned around and raised his head to see who is it and he saw that it’s Master Xehanort.

“Master Xehanort………” said Terra.

“And yet……… How frustrating that Eraqus refutes its power.” said Master Xehanort sadly to Terra as he slowly walked down the staircase toward him. “Why, you could train with him forever and still……… you’d never be a Master in his eyes.”

“But why? Help me understand, Master Xehanort.” demanded Terra. “What is it that I’ve failed to learn?”

“You’re fine as you are, Terra. Like my niece, Aglaia, who’s unable to come with me to this place to see the Mark of Mastery exam.” said Master Xehanort to Terra. “Darkness cannot be destroyed. It can only be channeled.” added Master Xehanort to Terra as he reached the bottom of the stairs and walked past him.

“Yes, thank you, Master.” said Terra before he bowed thankfully to Master Xehanort.

Suddenly Terra heard the sounds of bells started to sound out from the castle and he quickly turned around and run up the staircase back into the castle, away from Master Xehanort. After Terra run into the castle, Master Xehanort smiled evilly to himself before an oval-shaped portal of darkness suddenly formed and appear in the middle of the forecourt field in front of him and he walked forward into the portal of darkness. As soon as Master Xehanort step into the portal of darkness, the portal of darkness abruptly close behind him and vanished into thin air.

Meanwhile, inside Ventus’s room………

Ventus lie on his back on the single-sized bed inside his room as he swung a small light and dark brown-coloured Keyblade (with the name Terra carved on it’s hilt) back and forth above him while Josette is sitting on a green-coloured chair nearby him with a silent, fuming look on her face.

“I’m so annoyed at the Master for failing Terra just because darkness appear and emanate out of his arm. Why is he so against the darkness anyway?” said Josette out loud to herself.

“I don’t know, Jo. But I feel really bad for Terra.” said Ventus sadly to Josette.

“I know, Ven. I feel bad for him too.” said Josette sadly to Ventus (while the fuming look on her face slowly disappear).

Both Ventus and Josette then heard the sounds of bells ringing out from within the castle and Josette quickly stood up from the chair she’s sitting on, turned and run out of Ventus’s room while Ventus quickly jumped off his bed and as he was about to leave his room, the sinister voice of a young helmet guy coming from his right stopped him from leaving.

“Better hurry, Ventus………” said the helmet guy in a sinister tone of voice to Ventus.

“Huh? Who are you?” said Ventus in a confused tone of voice to the helmet guy as he turned and saw the helmet guy leaning his body casually against the table with some of his things lying on it.

“Or you’ll never see Terra again.” the helmet guy resumed telling Ventus, completely ignored Ventus’s question to him.

“What? Get real. I can see Terra anytime I want.” said Ventus as he scowled at the helmet guy.

“Like right now? He’s about to leave you and the others behind.” said the helmet guy as he turned to glance at Ventus. “And by the time any of you catch up to him……… he’ll be a different person.”

“Look-whoever you are-you don’t know the first thing about Terra.” said Ventus before he held out the wooden Keyblade in his right hand and got into a battle stance. “Me, the others and him will always be a team. You trying to pick a fight or what?”

“Oh, grow up.” scoffed the helmet guy at Ventus before he stood up and walked away from the table toward the other side of Ventus’s room and stopped in front of a small round-shaped table leaning against the wall with a large, light blue-coloured ball floating on the table and several small light blue balls floating around the large one. “Is that what you call friendship? You’ll never know the truth unless you go out and look for it yourself. Come on, what could you possibly know when you’re stuck here, looking at nothing but what’s in your tiny world?”

“Why you………” said Ventus in an annoyed tone of voice to the helmet guy before a surprise look appear on his face when he saw an oval-shaped portal of darkness suddenly formed and appear in front of the helmet guy before the helmet guy walked into the portal of darkness and it vanished into thin air after the helmet guy went into it.

Ventus then sighed and lowered his head to look down at the floor while he think back about some of the good times he had with Terra. Like the time when he would trained together with Terra on the forecourt field outside the castle until they’re done with their training and he glance at Terra, who glance and smiled proudly at him. The time when Terra gave him a stern lecture about something before he crossed his arms and shake his head at Ventus, which caused him to sniffle and about to cry before Terra ruffled Ventus hair with his right hand and he apologized to him. And the time where they would sit on the edge of the forecourt field and laugh loudly about something before Aqua, Josette and Beaufort came out of the castle and joined with them.

“Terra!” yelled Ventus before he turned and run out of his room (while shaking his head to stop thinking about the past), turned to his left and barreled straight into Josette before they fell with a painful thud to the floor.

“Ow, Ventus! Again?” said Josette as she scowled at Ventus for barreling into her and knocking them both to the floor for the second time.

“Oh, I’m so sorry, Jo.” Ventus apologized to Josette before he stood up then hold out his left hand to her.

“It’s fine, Ven. Just don’t do that to me for the third time.” said Josette as she placed her hand on Ventus and stood up from the floor.

After Ventus helped her up, he quickly run past her and run down the hallway to search for Terra (which caused Josette to let out a small sigh before she turned around and run after him).

Meanwhile, back in the large throne room………

“……… and insomuch as you two are now Keyblade Masters, the two of you must always be conscious of-” said Master Eraqus to both Aqua and Beaufort (who listen to his talk in silence) before his speech got interrupted by the sound of bells that started to ring out from within the castle and Master Eraqus, Aqua and Beaufort raised their heads to glance around the room with surprise and confusion looks on their faces before Master Eraqus turned around and he saw a small oval-shaped, glowing pink-coloured orb floating in thin air behind the tall-looking middle chair.

“What is that?” asked Master Eraqus to himself before he walked forward past the middle and left chair to examined the floating, glowing pink orb. The next moment, Terra burst into the room and he run forward and stopped in his tracks next to Aqua and Beaufort (who briefly glance at Terra before they glance back at Master Eraqus’s back).

“What happened?” Terra asked both Aqua and Beaufort.

“We don’t know, Terra.” replied Aqua.

“We were listening to Master Eraqus instructions when the bells suddenly ring out.” said Beaufort.

“Why isn’t Ven or Jo here?” Aqua asked both Terra and Beaufort.

“I’m sure they’ll be here soon, Aqua.” replied Terra.

“Very well, then. I will send my apprentices to investigate together with 1 of your apprentices. Yes, I understand, farewell.” said Master Eraqus to the floating, glowing pink orb before he bade farewell to it and it vanished from his sight. Master Eraqus then turned around and walked past the middle and left chair and stopped in front of Terra, Aqua and Beaufort (who immediately stand at attention in front of him).

“That was my dear old friend, Yen Sid. As all 3 of you know, he is Master no more……… but he still keeps a close eye on the tides of light and darkness.” said Master Eraqus to Terra, Aqua and Beaufort. “His council serves as signposts on the road we wielders of the Keyblade must walk. All the more reason, then, for concern- for he tells me that the princesses of hearts are in grave danger. Not only from the forces of darkness, as you 3 may assume……… but also from a new threat- one that feeds on people’s negativity. Fledgling emotions that have taken monster form- Yen Sid calls them the “Unversed”.”

“The “Unversed”, huh?” said Beaufort.

“Yes, Beaufort.” said Master Eraqus as he nodded his head at Beaufort. “As wielders of the Keyblade, you 3 are tasked with striking down any who would upset the balance of light and darkness. The Unversed are no exception. I tried to pass this dire news on to Master Xehanort, but my repeated attempts to reach him have failed. I doubt there is any connection, and yet……… this all troubles me.” said Master Eraqus.

“Master Xehanort is gone?” said Terra to himself. “But I just spoke to him a few minutes ago.” added Terra silently in his mind.

“So here we are. I need you 3 to get this situation under control. Eliminate the Unversed, and find Master Xehanort. But you 3 won’t be doing this alone for Yen Sid had decided to send out 1 of his apprentices to help you 3 out, which is his granddaughter, Kallima. Furthermore, I have unlocked the Lanes Between, you 3 may use these forbidden pathways to travel between this world and countless others. The darkness looms closer than usual within these spaces, but your armors will protect you. Lastly, remember that order must be kept. You 3 cannot tell anyone that there are other worlds. Now, go and fulfill your duties with Kallima.” said Master Eraqus to Terra, Aqua and Beaufort.

“Yes, Master.” replied Terra, Aqua and Beaufort in unison to Master Eraqua before Terra turned around and began to walked away.

“Hold on a second, Terra.” said Master Eraqus to Terra and he stopped and turned to glance back at him. “Consider this an opportunity. A second chance for you to change my mind.” Master Eraqus told Terra.

“What?” said Terra with a confused look on his face.

“You must know, I care for you like my own son. If I could have my way, I would name you Master in a second.” said Master Eraqus as he walked down the steps of the wooden podium toward Terra and stopped in front of him. “But, how can I, when I saw that you are so obsessed with power? Terra, you mustn’t be afraid of losing. Fear leads to obsession with power, and obsession beckons the darkness.” Master Eraqus trailed off to raised and placed his right hand on Terra’s shoulder. “You must never forget that.” Master Eraqus added to Terra.

“Thank you, Master.” said Terra as he bowed a little in front of Master Eraqus. “I swear……… I will not fail you again.”

After Terra’s done talking with Master Eraqus, he turned around, walked away from the 3 of them and walked out of the room. Both Aqua and Beaufort watched him leave with worried looks on their faces before they glance at Master Eraqus.

“Master, we’d best be on our way now.” said Aqua to Master Eraqus (while Beaufort nodded to him) before they turned around and began to walked away from him and they saw Ventus suddenly run past them toward the direction of the front entrance of the castle with Josette following closely behind him.

“Hey, Aqua. Isn’t those 2 who just run past us is Ventus and Josette?” Beaufort asked Aqua.

“Yeah, you’re right, Beau. It is them.” replied Aqua.

“Wait, Aqua, Beaufort.” Master Eraqus called to them both and they stopped and turned around to glance back at him. “Before you two depart, I have one other……… Well, call it a request, of the utmost priority.”

“Yes?” said Aqua.

“What kind of request, Master?” asked Beaufort.

“I told Terra that this could be a second chance for him to show the Mark of Mastery……… and I meant it.” said Master Eraqus to Aqua and Beaufort. “However, that flicker of darkness which he displayed during the examination- I can sense that it runs very deep within him. If he were to- If the power of darkness within him prove too much for him to handle, I want the both of you to bring him back to me at once.”

“Are you serious, Master? Do you really doubt Terra that much?” said Beaufort in an incredulous tone of voice.

“That’s not what I mean, Beaufort. Just know that it’s for his own good.” said Master Eraqus in a slightly stern tone of voice to Beaufort. “I could not bear to lose any of you to the darkness.”

“Of course, Master. We would never let that happen.” said Aqua with a nod of her head to Master Eraqus. “We promised you that we’ll bring Terra back. Only this time, you’ll see that he has what it takes to be a Master like me and Beaufort just become.”

“Good. Now you two best be off now.” said Master Eraqus to both Aqua and Beaufort, who bowed their heads at him before they turned around and walked out of the room.

“Despite what the Master just said and what you’re thinking now, Aqua, Terra’s not a weak person.” said Beaufort.

“I know he’s not, Beaufort.” said Aqua.

Meanwhile, on the forecourt field………

Terra was about to leave when he heard the sounds of running footsteps and also heard Ventus calling out to him from behind.

“Terra!” Ventus called out to Terra,who turned around and saw both Ventus and Josette running down the stairs and they came to a stop in front of him (while they panted and catch their breaths).

“W-We-” stammer Ventus.

“It’s okay, you two.” said Terra reassuringly to both Ventus and Josette as he placed his hands on their heads to ruffle their hairs a little.

Both Ventus and Josette then lifted their heads to glance up at Terra, who smiled at them before he turned to look away from them (while both Aqua and Beaufort watched the 3 of them silently from the top of the stairs). After Terra turned to look away from them both, he raised his right hand, clench it into a fist before he pressed his fist on the pauldron armor on his left arm, causing a bright light to shine out of his pauldron and enveloped him in the bright light for a few minutes (while causing both Ventus and Josette to cover their eyes with their hands from the bright light) before the light slowly dimmed down to reveal Terra completely covered from his head down to his toe in a dark brown, gold and red-coloured Keyblade armor. Terra then summoned forth his Earthshaker Keyblade, swung and gripped it tightly in his hands for a few seconds before he raised and pointed his Earthshaker Keyblade up in the air above him to cast a beam of light up toward the sky to formed a circular-shaped, dark blue-coloured portal. After Terra created the portal with his Keyblade, he swung and threw his Keyblade high into the air, where it abruptly glowed then change into a large Keyblade Bike Glider before it speed down toward Terra, who crouch down then jumped onto his Keyblade Bike Glider before he rode his Keyblade Bike Glider up toward the portal, away from Ventus and Josette.

“Well, there goes Terra, Ven.” said Josette to Ventus as she watched Terra ride then disappear into the portal.

Ventus watched as Terra ride then disappear into the portal before he lowered his head a little, glance at the pauldron armor on his left arm and he pressed the pauldron armor with his right hand, causing another bright light to shine out of his pauldron and enveloped him in the bright light for a few minutes (which caused Josette to covered her eyes from the light for the second time) before the light slowly dimmed down to reveal Ventus completely covered from his head down to his toes in a dark green, gold and red-coloured Keyblade armor.

“Woah………” said Ventus in an awed tone of voice as he glance at the Keyblade armor he’s wearing now.

“Ven! What did you just-!?” said Josette in a shocked tone of voice when she opened her eyes and saw Ventus in his Keyblade armor.

“What does it look like, Jo?” said Ventus. “I’m going after Terra!”

“But, Ven………” Josette began to protest to Ventus but before she could say anymore words to him, Ventus summoned, swung and threw his Wayward Wind Keyblade high into the air, where it glowed then change into a Keyblade Waveboard Glider before it speed down toward Ventus, who jumped and landed onto his Keyblade Waveboard Glider and he took off upward to the portal.

“Oh, Ven. What are you thinking, going after Terra?” thought Josette to herself before she glance down at the pauldron armor on her left arm. “I’m not going to let him go out there alone.” added Josette firmly in her mind before she raised her right hand and pressed the pauldron, causing a third bright light to shine out of her pauldron, enveloped her in the bright light for a few minutes before the light slowly dimmed down to reveal Josette covered from her head to her toes in a dark orange, gold and black-coloured Keyblade armor. Josette then summoned, swung and threw her Helianthus Keyblade high into the air, where it glowed then change into a Keyblade Waveboard Glider just like Ventus (except that it’s dark orange and yellow in colour) before it speed down toward Josette, who jumped and landed onto her Keyblade Glider and she took off into the portal after Ventus.

When both Aqua and Beaufort saw with surprise/shocked looks on their faces that both Ventus and Josette had change into their Keyblade armors before they threw and transform their Keyblades into Gliders, they quickly run down the stairs (while Master Eraqus came out of the castle, saw what happened and he run down the stairs behind both Aqua and Beaufort) to attempt to stop them both but they were a few seconds too late to stop them from leaving.

“Wait, Ven, Jo!” Aqua and Beaufort cried out in unison to both Ventus and Josette as they watched them took off on their Keyblade Waveboard Gliders up toward the portal.

“No! They mustn’t, especially Ventus!” said Master Eraqus to both Aqua and Beaufort before he turned to glance at them. “The both of you must hurry and bring them back!”

“Don’t worry, Master.” said Aqua reassuringly to Master Eraqus.

“We’ll hurry and bring Ven and Jo back.” said Beaufort reassuringly to Master Eraqus as well before both he and Aqua raised and pressed the pauldrons on their left arms with their right hands to change into their Keyblade armors (which is black, dark blue and silver-coloured for Beaufort, same goes for Aqua). Both Aqua and Beaufort then summoned, swung and threw their Rainfell and Vagos Maestus Keyblades high into the air, where they glowed then transform into a Keyblade Bike Glider for Beaufort and a two-part bow and-platform Glider for Aqua. Both Aqua and Beaufort then jumped and landed on their Keyblade Gliders before they rode and took off up toward the portal and went into it.

Meanwhile, in another world………

“You called and wished to see me, grandfather?” asked Kallima after she step into her grandfather’s room and stand at attention in front of his desk, staring at him.

“Indeed, Kallima.” replied the elderly man named Yen Sid with a small nod of his head to Kallima. “The stars have told me that the princesses of hearts are in grave danger from the forces of darkness and from another new force called “Unversed”. Fledgling emotions that preys and feeds on the negativity of peoples.”

“Oh my goodness, grandfather. Are you serious?” said Kallima as a worried look appear on her face.

“Unfortunately so, Kallima. I’ve already told and warned an old friend of mine named Eraqus about the coming danger and he’s decided to sent out 3 of his apprentices to eliminate the Unversed and the forces of darkness while protecting the princesses of hearts and the innocent peoples from them.” Yen Sid told Kallima. “That is why I’ve call for you, Kallima. I want you to head out and helped Eraqus’s apprentices in eliminating the forces of the Unversed and the forces of darkness and protect the princesses of hearts and the innocent peoples from them.”

“I understand, grandfather. I’ll leave now and helped Master Eraqus’s apprentices in eliminating the Unversed and the forces of darkness before they could hurt the princesses of hearts and the innocent peoples.” said Kallima as she nodded her head firmly to her grandfather before she turned around and leave the room.

“Be careful and good luck to you, Kallima.” thought Yen Sid silently in his mind before he slowly stood up from his chair, turned around to walked toward the large star-shaped window in his room and he glance down and watched Kallima as she change into her Keyblade armor (which is black, dark green and silver in colour) before she summoned, swung and threw her Keyblade (which is a black and white-coloured Keyblade named New Moon) high up into the air, where it glowed then transform into a Keyblade Chariot Glider before she got onto it and took off.
Prologue, part 2

4 years later………

Inside a room which had a small fireplace with a single empty glass and a small yellow-coloured weighing scale next to the glass above it, a semi-large rectangular wooden table with a mask, two small boxes, some papers and books on it next to the small fireplace, a wooden bookshelf with dozens of books in it next to the table and with a yellow-coloured telescope facing out the windows in front of the bookshelf (while both the table and the bookshelf is leaning back against the right wall which had some papers glued or pinned on the wall with strange symbols drawn on the papers) while several odd-looking items, a wooden shelf built on the top left corner of the wall (while the left wall also had more papers glued/pinned on it with more strange symbols drawn on them) which had a light blue-coloured toy submarine, a single pot of plant and an empty birdcage on the wooden shelf.

The young, spiky blonde-haired boy (who’s wearing a black-coloured T-shirt with a button-up grey-coloured, vest-like shirt over the black T-shirt, a kind of short-sleeve jacket which is black in colour on one side, white in colour on the other over the vest and the T-shirt (while the collar of the jacket is pleated, folded down and is red in colour) and with a pair of black-coloured straps that criss-crossed over his jacket with a silver-coloured emblem in the center of the criss-crossing straps, a kind of dull green and dark blue-coloured armor tied securely on the left sleeve of his jacket, a white and dark grey-coloured pants and a pair of shoes that matched the outfit the boy is wearing) is currently lying on his back on a slightly large single-sized bed near the windows inside his room before he sat up from the bed, let out a small bored sigh then he turned his head to his left to look out the windows and he gasped in surprise when he saw several shooting stars flying across the night sky filled with thousands of bright stars.

“A meteor shower!” said the spiky, blonde-haired boy in an excited tone of voice before he quickly turned around and jumped off the bed, run out of his room, turned to his right and he accidently run and barreled straight into a fair-skinned, long titian hair, blue-eyed young girl (who’s wearing a short-sleeve white-coloured T-shirt with a pair of dark purple-coloured straps that criss-crossed over her T-shirt with a silver-coloured emblem in the center of it, a pale yellow and dark blue armor tied securely on the right sleeve of her T-shirt, knee-length magenta-coloured skirt and matching magenta-coloured flats on her legs) before they fell with a slightly painful thud on the floor.

“Ow! What’s your hurry, Ventus?” said the long titian-haired, blue-eyed girl as she scowled at the spiky, blonde-haired boy named Ventus for suddenly running out of his room then barreling into her and knocking them both to the floor.

“Oh, sorry for barreling into you, Josette.” Ventus apologized to the long titian-haired, blue-eyed girl named Josette before he stood up and hold out his right hand at her to helped her up.

“Apology accepted, Ventus. So what’s your hurry?” Josette asked Ventus after she clasped his hand and stood up from the floor.

“That’s because I just saw some meteor showers flying across the stars in the night sky outside the windows in my room, Josette! So I’m going to head out to see them right now!” Ventus told Josette excitedly before he run past her down the hallway toward the front door.

“Meteor showers, huh? Been quite a while since we last saw them.” thought Josette in her mind before she decided to turn around and followed after Ventus (who didn’t look back and saw that Josette is now following slightly far behind him since he run toward the front door first).

XXXX

Ventus opened and run out of the large front door then run down the long staircase of his home (which looks like a large white and gold-coloured castle with 5 of its own buildings connected side by side with each other, dozens of tall and sharp-looking spires protruding out from the tops of each 5 buildings and with 2 huge and thick-looking gold chains that wrapped around the castle and connected it to the top of 2 tall and twin rocky peaks which is covered with green mosses to keep the castle close to them and to the grassy mountains and the flowing river), run across the large circular forecourt, run down the grassy mountain path and run across a small white-coloured bridge until he stopped running when he reached the training ground and saw the 2 wooden training equipments with some large, circular, gold-coloured chained rings hanging on the 2 wooden equipments.

“I’ve got some time to spare!” said Ventus as he smirked at the wooden training equipment in front of him and summoned his Keyblade out (which is black and yellow-coloured and is called “Wayward Wind”) before he began attacking the single gold-coloured chained ring hanging on the wooden equipment with his Wayward Wind Keyblade (while still unaware that Josette had followed and caught up to him and is now watching him attacking the ring silently behind him).

After Ventus’s done in attacking the single chained ring hanging on the wooden equipment for a few seconds, he turned and walked away from the first wooden equipment and stopped in front of the second wooden equipment (which is a tall and huge wheel-like wooden equipment with 4 large, circular, gold-coloured chained rings hanging around it).

“What? You want a piece of me too?” Ventus taunted the huge wheel-like wooden equipment in front of him before he began attacking it (which caused it to swung its 4 rings round and round when Ventus’s attack struck one of its rings head on).

“Oh, Ventus.” thought Josette as she slowly shake her head at what Ventus just spoke out loud to the wheel-like wooden equipment in front of him (before he began attacking it with his Keyblade) before she make her way toward him. “Looks like you’re getting better at your training, Ven.” Josette told Ventus.

“Really, you think so, Josette?” Ventus asked Josette as he ceased his attacks on the wheel-like wooden equipment and turned to glance at her.

“Uh huh.” said Josette as she nodded to Ventus, who smiled at her.

“Wait, what am I messing around here for?” said Ventus suddenly to himself when he finally realised/remembered what his initial goal is. “I’m gonna miss the meteor showers! Come on, let’s go and see them, Josette!” Ventus told Josette before he reached out and grabbed hold of her hand and he bring Josette with him up a grassy/rocky path toward the large, grassy summit field/cliff together (which had 5 or 6 bright lamps standing on the edges of the summit’s cliff around the large summit field and a single white-coloured bench near the edge of it). Once both Ventus and Josette reached the large summit field/cliff, they slowly walked forward and stopped in their tracks near the edge of the field/cliff (and near where the bench is) before they raised their heads to look up at the thousands of bright stars shining while also seeing some more meteor showers flying across the night sky.

“Wow………” said Ventus with an awed look on his face.

“Wow is right, Ven. Those meteor showers that flew across the night sky are always beautiful.” said Josette as she let out a small, happy sigh before she sat down while Ventus lie down next to her with his hands behind his head on the ground near the edge of the field/cliff.

“Yeah, you’re right, Josette. But still……… Why does this seem so familiar to me?” Ventus mumbled to himself and to Josette (who turned to glance down at him in silence) before he closed his eyes and fell asleep.

“Ven, you look so cute and peaceful when you fell asleep.” thought Josette with an amused look on her face when she saw that Ventus had fall asleep before she heard the sound of 2 soft footsteps coming toward her and the slumbering Ventus from behind. She turned to look behind her and saw that it’s 2 of hers and Ventus’s close friends, Aqua (a fair-skinned, short blue-haired, blue-eyed young girl who’s wearing a black-coloured, high collared sleeveless halter-top with 2 pink-coloured straps which criss-crossed over her chest with the same silver-coloured emblem in the center of it, long white-coloured bell sleeves on both of her arms with a dark-blue and yellow-coloured armor on the left bell sleeve of her arm, dark grey-coloured fingerless gloves on her hands, short black-coloured pants, long black stockings and short silver/black-coloured boots on her legs and 2 long blue and white-coloured cloths wrapped securely around her waist) and Beaufort (a tan-skinned, short light brown-haired, blue-eyed young guy who’s wearing a dark blue-coloured T-shirt with 2 light blue-coloured straps criss-crossing over his T-shirt with a golden-coloured emblem in the center of it, a dark grey and yellow-coloured armor on the right sleeve of his T-shirt and a long black-coloured jeans and white/black-coloured shoes on his legs).

Josette raised and held her left finger over her mouth at both Aqua and Beaufort while raising and pointing her right finger silently at the still slumbering Ventus lying on the ground next to her, silently telling both Aqua and Beaufort that Ventus is currently asleep and that they need to approach her and Ventus silently. Both Aqua and Beaufort nodded to Josette before Aqua let out a small chuckle while Beaufort had a mischievous smirk/look on his face when they saw Ventus sleeping on the ground before they quietly approach both Josette and Ventus.

A few seconds later, Ventus woke up from his short slumber, sat himself up from the ground to look up at the night sky filled with bright stars for the second time before he yawned and stretch his arms a little.

“Had a nice nap, Ven?” Josette asked Ventus.

“Yeah, I sure did, Josette.” replied Ventus before he lie back down on the ground and saw both Aqua and Beaufort suddenly appearing and looking down at him from his upside-down view.

“Whoa!” Ventus cried out in surprise before he quickly sat himself up from the ground and rolled over onto his knees to glance up at Aqua and Beaufort with a pouting look on his face (while they and Josette smiled and chuckled at his surprise reaction). “Gimme a break, Aqua, Beaufort!” Ventus told Aqua and Beaufort before he turned to scowled at Josette. “Why didn’t you wake and tell me that they’re behind us, Josette?” Ventus demanded of Josette.

“Because it’s more fun to see how you’d react if you didn’t know that we’re behind you, Ven.” said Beaufort in a mischievous tone of voice to Ventus.

“Ven, you hopeless sleepyhead.” said Aqua to Ventus. “You know that you should have at least brought a blanket with you if you’re going to sleep out here.”

“Yeah, Ven. Like what Aqua just said, or you might catch a cold.” said Josette while Beuafort nodded in agreement.

“But……… Did I dream that place up?” said Ventus to himself as he lowered his head to look down at the ground. “It really felt like I’d been there before……… looking up at the stars………”

Both Josette and Beaufort exchange confused glances with each other when they heard what Ventus just said while Aqua hold out and placed her hand on Ventus’s head to ruffled his head a little.

“’Cept you’ve always lived here with us for the past 4 years now, Ven.” said Aqua as she smiled at Ventus.

“Yeah……… I know, Aqua.” said Ventus as he smiled back at Aqua before both he and Josette stood up from the ground, turned around to walked toward the edge of the field/cliff with both Aqua and Beaufort following closely beside them and all 4 of them sat down on the edge of the field/cliff together.

“Hey, Aqua, Josette, Beaufort?” Ventus began talking as he glance left and right at Aqua, Josette and Beaufort and they glance at him. “Do the 3 of you ever wonder what stars are? Where light comes from?” Ventus asked them.

“No, we don’t, Ven.” replied Beaufort.

“Hmmm……… Well, they say………” Aqua began saying to Ventus as she glance away from him to glance up at the night sky.

“……… That each and every stars shining up there is another world.” the voice of yet another of their close friend finished Aqua’s words suddenly from behind the 4 of them before they turned to glance at their friend (which turns out to be a tan-skinned, short spiky dark brown-haired, blue-eyed young guy who’s wearing a high-collared black-coloured T-shirt with 2 red-coloured straps criss-crossing over his T-shirt, a pair of long dark grey/yellow-coloured hakama pants with a golden emblem at the top center of his long pants, dark brown-coloured boots on his feets, a black wristband on his right wrist and a golden, brown and dark grey-coloured armor on his left arm).

“Terra.” both Aqua and Josette greeted and say his name while both Ventus and Beaufort smiled and nodded their heads at Terra.

“Hello, you guys. And yep, hard to believe that there are so many worlds out there besides our own.” said Terra as he make his way toward the 4 of them and stopped in his tracks in front of them. “The light is their hearts, and it’s shining down on us like a million lanterns.”

“Wow, Terra. Those are quite the smart and poetic words that you just said to us.” said Beaufort as he smirk at Terra.

“Hey! What do you mean by that, Beau?” said Terra as he scowled at Beaufort.

“Oh, not a thing, Terra.” said Beaufort with a feigned innocent look on his face while Josette chuckled a little at Beaufort messing with Terra a little.

“What? I don’t get it.” said Ventus with a confused look on his face.

“In other words, they’re just like you and Jo, Ven.” Terra told both Ventus and Josette.

“Like me and Ven?” said Josette in a confused tone of voice to Terra.

“Yeah.” said Terra with a nod of his head to Josette.

“What does THAT mean?” asked Ventus as he stood up from the edge of the field/cliff, turned around to approach and stop in front of Terra.

“You and Jo both will find out and know about it someday, I’m sure.” replied Terra.

“Why don’t you just tell us now, Terra? Don’t keep the both of us in suspense.” said Josette in a pleading tone of voice to Terra.

“Yeah, I agree with Josette, Terra. We wanna know now.” Ventus demanded at Terra.

“Sorry, no can do, Ven, Jo. The 2 of you are still too young to know now.” said Terra.

“Say what? That’s so not fair of you, Terra!” said Josette with a pouting look on her face.

“Yeah, Terra! Quit treating the both of us like kids already!” said Ventus as he scowled at Terra.

“The fact that you and Josette just acted like kids proves that you 2 are still kids, Ven.” said Beaufort to Ventus, causing both Ventus and Josette to turned and scowled at him.

“Beaufort, not you too!” said Josette in a disbelief tone of voice at Beaufort, who smirked back at her.

Aqua watched her 4 close friends started bickering, teasing and messing with each other in amused silence until she can’t take it anymore and began laughing. Her laughter caused Terra, Beaufort, Ventus and Josette to ceased their bickering and all 4 of them immediately turned to glance at her.

“Hey, what are you laughing at, Aqua?” Terra asked/demanded at Aqua.

Aqua ceased her laughter for a moment to answer Terra’s question while she glance at them. “Sorry, I can’t help it. The 4 of you would make the weirdest brothers and sister.” said Aqua in an amused tone of voice to Terra before she resumed laughing at them.

“Huh?” said Terra, Beaufort, Ventus and Josette in confusion at Aqua’s words before they drop their bickering/messing attitude and started to laughed with her before all 4 of them sat down on the edge of the field/cliff with her to glance up at the stars together after they’re done laughing.

“Oh yeah! Terra, you, me and Beaufort have our Mark of Mastery exams tomorrow.” said Aqua suddenly to both Terra and Beaufort (who turned to glance at her, same goes for Ventus and Josette) before she stood up and stepped away from the edge of the field/cliff while staring at them and putting her hands into her pockets to pull out 5 different coloured, star-shaped trinkets with brown strings on them and showed the 5 trinkets to them. “I made us some good luck charms!” Aqua told them with a smile on her face before she threw the orange and purple-coloured charms toward both Terra and Beaufort, who quickly stood up from the edge of the field/cliff and caught the charms easily (while both Ventus and Josette stood up as well and stared in awed at the 2 orange and purple-coloured charms in Terra and Beaufort’s hands). “Here’s both of yours, Ven, Jo!” Aqua told Ventus and Josette before she threw the light green and dark pink-coloured charms toward both Ventus and Josette, who also caught the charms easily.

“Me and Josette get one too?” said Ventus as he smiled widely at Aqua.

“Of course, Ven. One for each of us.” said Aqua as she hold out her own good luck charm to show them (which is blue in colour) and Terra, Beaufort, Ventus and Josette hold their charms out near hers.

“Wow, thanks for these good luck charms, Aqua! They’re beautiful.” said Josette happily at Aqua.

“You’re welcome, Jo.” said Aqua as she smiled at Josette before she turned to look away from them and glance down at the blue-coloured charm in her hand. “Somewhere in 1 of the worlds out there, there’s this tree that grew star-shaped fruits on it……… and it’s fruits represents an unbreakable connection. So, as long as you and your friends carry good luck charms shaped like it, nothing can ever drive you apart. You’ll always find your way back to each other.” Aqua say and explained to them about it before she turned to glance back at them. “Technically, I think you’re supposed to make them with seashells, but I did the best with what I had.”

“Wow, really, Aqua?” Josette asked Aqua.

“Yeah, Jo.” replied Aqua.

“Oy, sometimes you’re such a girl, Aqua.” said Terra.

“Hey, what do you mean “sometimes”, Terra?” said Aqua as she scowled at Terra.

“I agree with Terra, Aqua. Because sometimes girls like you and Josette would think, do and make such things.” said Beaufort to Aqua and she turned to scowled at him, same goes for Josette.

“So, these charms you just gave us aren’t real good luck charms?” said Ventus in a sad/disappointed tone of voice to Aqua.

“Well……… that’s yet to be seen, Ven. But I did work a little magic on them.” Aqua told Ventus.

“Really? Like what?” asked Ventus curiously.

“An unbreakable connection, of course.” said Aqua as she smiled at Ventus and hold her charm high in the air above her. Terra, Beaufort, Ventus and Josette smiled at her before they put their good luck charms inside their pockets.

“Well, like Aqua just said and reminded us, tomorrow’s the exam.” said Terra to Beaufort, Aqua, Ventus and Josette as he walked forward and stop a few feet away from them. “Anyone of you want to do some last minute spar?”

“I can take ya!” said Ventus as he summoned his Wayward Wind Keyblade out while Terra smirk at Ventus then turned around to faced him and summoned his own Keyblade out (which is a blue and dark brown-coloured Keyblade named Earthshaker).

“Good luck, Ven! You’ll need it!” said Josette in an encouraging tone of voice at Ventus.

“Try not to hurt Ven too badly, Terra.” Beaufort told Terra.

“Yeah, I know, Beau.” replied Terra before both he and Ventus began charging across the field toward each other. Ventus swung and slash his Wayward Wind Keyblade swiftly down on Terra several times while Terra used his Earthshaker Keyblade to blocked and defend himself from Ventus’s swift attacks.

“Quit goin’ easy on me, Terra. You’re not gonna win unless you stay on the offensive!” said Ventus, which caused Aqua, Beaufort and Josette to sighed and shake their heads at him.

“Okay, if you say so, Ven.” said Terra before he charge toward Ventus and swung/slash his Earthshaker Keyblade several times down and hard on Ventus, who quickly dodged and blocked against Terra’s hard attacks with his Wayward Wind Keyblade before they jumped backward away from each other.

“Okay, Terra. That’s enough sparring you had with Ventus. It’s time for mine and Aqua’s turn to spar against him and Josette to see how’s their training is.” said Beaufort as he, Aqua and Josette summoned forth their own Keyblades (which is a black and blue-coloured Keyblade named Vagos Maestus for Beaufort, a silver and dark blue-coloured Keyblade named Rainfell for Aqua and a white and orange-coloured Keyblade named Helianthus for Josette) before the 3 of them walked forward past Terra (who nodded then dismissed his Earthshaker Keyblade, turned and walked away to let the 4 of them spar) and both Beaufort and Aqua turned to faced both Ventus and Josette before they charge across the field toward each other and they swung, slashed and blocked their Keyblades several times at each other until they had enough of their spar and moved backward away from each other.

“Not bad, Ven, Jo. Both of your Keyblade trainings have improved.” said Beaufort as he smiled proudly at them.

“Thanks, Beaufort.” said Josette as she smiled back at him.

“Yeah, thanks, Beau! And trust me, you, Terra and Aqua are definitely ready and you 3 are gonna clean up at the exam tomorrow.” said Ventus.

“I hope it’s that easy.” said Terra as he make his way toward Ventus and Josette.

“It’s like the Master said. Power is born within the heart. When the time is right, both you and Josette need to look inside yourselves……… and I’m sure that you 2 will find it there.” said Aqua as she and Beaufort make their way toward Ventus and Josette as well.

“Yeah, exactly, Ven, Jo.” said Beaufort.

“Thanks for saying such encouraging words to me and Ven, you three.” said Josette as she and Ventus smiled at Aqua, Terra and Beaufort (who smiled back at her) before they dismissed their Keyblades.
“Well, time for us to head back now. It’s getting a little late.” said Terra to Ventus, Aqua, Beaufort and Josette before he turned and walked away.

“Yeah, we know, Terra.” thought Josette with a nod of her head at Terra’s retreating back before both she and Beaufort turned and followed behind him.

“Wait for me!” said Ventus as he turned and followed after the 3 of them while Aqua continue to glance up at the starlit night sky for a few more seconds then turned and followed after the 4 of them.

XXXX

That would be the last night we ever spend time together beneath the same stars.

XXXX

Meanwhile, in another world………
A short, fair-skinned round-faced mouse guy with black round-shaped ears above his head, white eyes with black pupils in them and a black nose and wearing a black and grey-coloured T-shirt with matching shorts on his body, black shoes on his feets, white-coloured gloves on his hands and a long and thin black tail behind his back is currently trying to balance the large opened book under his feet as the ocean water under the opened book swayed vigorously back and forth and also left and right.

Then a sudden gust of ocean water swept the opened book and the mouse guy straight forward and round and round a swirling water cyclone before the ocean water swept both the opened book and the mouse guy up into the air and the ocean water under the mouse guy abruptly vanished to reveal a large circular room with yellow-coloured wall which had several wooden shelves built on the wall with books on them and a wooden door, several yellow-coloured pots leaning against the wall on the green-coloured floor and under the book shelves and the mouse guy glance down at the floor under him with a surprised look on his face before he fell face down with a painful thud on the floor.

“Aw, looks like I failed once again.” said the mouse guy sadly to himself.

“Oh, don’t say such sad words, Mickey. I’m sure that you’ll pass my grandfather’s exam with flying colours next time.” said a fair-skinned, long blonde-haired, blue-eyed girl who’s wearing a sleeveless, knee-length dark green-coloured dress with a white-coloured bolero jacket over it and brown-coloured boots on her legs reassuringly to the mouse guy named Mickey as she hold out her left hand and helped him up from the floor.

“Yeah, I guess you’re right, Kallima.” said Mickey as he smiled at the girl named Kallima, placed his gloved hand on hers before he stood up from the floor and they turned to glance at the elderly man (who’s wearing a long sleeve blue robe with a long blue hat on his head with the golden symbols of a crescent moon and a star on it) sitting in a long green-coloured wooden chair behind his rectangular table.

The elderly man glance silently at his granddaughter and the mouse guy standing in front of his table for a few seconds before he closed his eyes and lowered his head a little. “Kallima……… Mickey………” the elderly man began speaking to them both.

“Yes, grandfather. What is it?” said Kallima.

“I cannot shake the feeling that something terrible is about to transpire.” the elderly man told both Kallima and Mickey, who glance and exchange confused then worried glances with each other after they heard what the elderly man just told them both.

XXXX

Through and outside the huge star-shaped window of the elderly man’s room, six bright stars is twinkling away in the night sky.
Prologue, part 1

On the sandy shores of a beach of a small island, a spiky silver-haired, tan-skinned guy wearing a sleeveless black shirt, dark grey-coloured bands on his wrists, long dark grey pants and black boots is standing on the shore and staring out at the ocean and the bright sun that’s setting down for the night to arrive.

"This world...is just too small." said the guy to himself.

Several years later………

At night, an elderly man wearing a long black coat with a hood over his head (which covers the upper part of his face), black gloves on his hands, black boots on his feet (and carrying a person wrapped in a white-coloured blanket under his left arm) stands on the sandy beach at the exact same spot where the guy stands on a few years ago and he stared out at the ocean and the night sky for a few seconds before the elderly, black coat man turned to his left to walked down the beach toward a set of small wooden stairs, walked slowly up the stairs and walked across a wooden bridge and he stopped in his tracks in the middle of a slightly round-shaped sandy field (which had some grass, coconut trees and a single paopu fruit tree growing near and around the edge of the field).

"There, you see? An empty world like a prison. I imagine you'll be right at home here." said the elderly man to the person wrapped in a white blanket which he carried under his left arm before he lifted and placed the person down on the large trunk of the paopu fruit tree. A small gust of wind blew across the person’s face to reveal the face of a young slightly fair-skinned, spiky blonde-haired boy with blank and sleepy-looking clear blue eyes before the boy closed his eyes and fell asleep.

XXXX

After the young spiky blonde-haired boy fell asleep, he appear and started to fall downward within the dark and vast space of his own subconciousness. As he kept on falling, the white blanket wrapped around his body began to disappear to reveal the boy wearing a white and dark grey-coloured pants with and a pair of dark grey and white-coloured shoes with some red-coloured stripes on it.
The boy then opened his eyes to look at the vast and dark space around him before he look down, saw that he’s falling toward a wide, white-coloured circular platform (which had a broken and missing part of it) before he landed and stands on the cracked-up circular platform. After the boy landed on the cracked-up circular platform, he soon heard a voice began speaking to him.

“Who’s there?” the boy asked the voice talking to him.

“I’m a brand new heart.” the voice told the boy.

“But this is………” said the boy confusingly to the voice. “Why are you in my heart?” the boy asked the voice.

“The light brought me here.” replied the voice. “I saw it shining in the distance……… and followed it here.”

“Yeah.” said the boy as he nodded his head in agreement to the voice while he raised and placed his right hand on his chest. “That was my light. But my heart is fractured. And right now……… the remaining heart that I have left is slipping away.”

“Then you should merged your fractured heart with mine.” said the voice to the boy.

“Huh? Why?” said the boy in confusion to the voice before he watched as a light shone on the cracked-up part of his heart and healed it up until it’s whole once again.

“Now our hearts have touched and merged together.” said the voice reassuringly to the boy. “Nothing else will slip away. And someday……… you’ll be strong enough to win and take back the fractured part of your own heart.” added the voice to the boy.

“Right. Thanks.” said the boy thankfully to the voice.

“It’s time for you to wake up now.” the voice began saying. “All we need to do is………”

“Open the door.” the boy finished saying before the light on the circular platform under him began clearing away to reveal the picture/painting of himself on it (and with several different patterns/drawings in different green colours as the background behind the picture/painting of himself). The boy glance down at the picture/painting of himself on the circular platform before he disappear from it.

XXXX
After the elderly man placed the boy on the large trunk of the paopu fruit tree, he turned and began to leave the boy there and he didn’t watched as the boy suddenly turned himself around on the trunk of the tree and slowly raised his right arm up into the air. The elderly man then stopped in his tracks, turned around and he saw a sword in the shape of a large key appear in the boy’s hand.

“A Keyblade?” said the elderly man in a surprised tone of voice after he saw the Keyblade appear in the boy’s hand before he saw several small energy of blue and white-coloured lights appear and gather near the upper tip of the boy’s Keyblade before the energies of light shot upward away from the Keyblade and struck the night sky, creating a shower of several bright and twinkling lights on the night sky.

The elderly man glance up at the part of the night sky which the light from the boy’s Keyblade just struck into before he lowered his head to glance down at the boy and began smiling smugly to himself.

As for the boy, he slowly opened his blank-looking blue eyes to look up and saw the final few remnants of the light twinkling away in the night sky.
Chapter 4

Kallima spend the next 2 hours sitting by herself on a large round-shaped boulder near the edge of a clear-looking lake in the middle of the forest clearing and staring down at the lake while thinking worriedly/sadly about her keyblade wielder friends, her grandfather and the others living in other worlds (after she walked away from Princess Shayla and her 6 guardians of the earth and out of the temple before she summoned forth, threw and transform her keyblade into a glider before she got on then rode down and away from the floating animarium island toward the large city below (which is called Turtle Cove city) and flew above and around the city in search of a secluded place to be alone until she found the forest clearing and the lake in it, flew down toward the forest clearing before her glider landed on the ground and she got off and dismissed her glider). A few seconds later, she heard the sound of footsteps and felt the familiar presence of the creature of darkness named Zen-Aku getting closer from behind her before the footsteps stops.

"You again, female keyblade wielder? What are you still doing here? Shouldn't you have left already after I told you about the princess and her 6 guardians of the earth who stay on the Animarium island and who might know of a way to help you leave?" said Zen-Aku in a blunt tone of voice to Kallima as he glance at her back.

Kallima flinch a little from Zen-Aku's blunt and almost hurtful words to her before she let out a sad sigh then turned her head to look over her left shoulder at him. "Yes, I did went up to the island and met and talk to the princess and her 6 guardians of the earth like you told me in the canyon cave 2 hours ago about whether they knew of a way for me to leave, but to my dismay, sadness and despair, neither the princess nor her 6 guardians of the earth knew of any way to help me to leave. Although they did say and told me that I'm welcome to stay with them while they'll try to find a way to help me to leave." Kallima said/explain to Zen-Aku.

"… Oh, I see. That was quite blunt and cruel of me to say such words to you and I'm sorry for it, female keyblade wielder. I thought that they…" said Zen-Aku in an apologetic tone of voice to Kallima before he fell into silence and turned his face to look away from her, beginning to feel quite quilty about it.

"Apology accepted, Zen-Aku. And I already told you that my name is Kallima, not female keyblade wielder. At least remember that. Also it's not your fault that you didn't know that they had no idea on how to help me leave." Kallima told Zen-Aku in a sad tone of voice before she turned her head to look away from him and look back down at the lake.

Zen-Aku turned his head to look back at Kallima's back with an almost sad/pity look on his face and in his yellow eyes before he make his way toward her, got on the boulder she sat on and sat down next to her (which caused a surprise look to appear on her face when she saw him do so), summoned forth his flute dagger before he raised his flute dagger near his mouth and started to play a soothing and beautiful melody from it (which deepen the surprise look on her face before it change into a look of confusion).

"Why do you suddenly started to play a melody next to me, Zen-Aku?" Kallima asked Zen-Aku in a confused tone of voice.

Zen-Aku ceased playing his flute dagger, lowered it and turned his head to glance at her. "… I just thought that it might lift your spirits a little. Guess I was wrong about it." replied Zen-Aku before he look away from her and let out a small sigh.

"No, that's not what I mean, Zen-Aku. Just that I was quite surprise, confused and had no idea that you would do such a thing… I guess I'll say thank you for thinking about doing something nice to lift my spirit at least." said Kallima as the confused look on her face fade away and she gave him a small smile. "Looks like my initial thought about you being not so bad even though you're one of the forces of darkness turns out to be true… right?" Kallima added to Zen-Aku.

Zen-Aku immediately glance back at her with narrow eyes after he heard what she just said to him before he raised and pressed his dagger against her throat. "Are you so certain about it, keyblade wielder? Because I could use this dagger to slash swiftly across your throat right now and kill you off, proving to you that I'm not as good as you initially think." said Zen-Aku in a threatening tone of voice to Kallima (while she let out a small sigh when she heard him called her keyblade wielder instead of her name).

Kallima glance slightly worriedly/warily down at the dagger pressed threateningly against her throat for the second time in one day before she slowly raised her head to glance up at Zen-Aku then she raised and placed her hands on his arm which holds the dagger. "I know you could, Zen-Aku, but I'm sure that you wouldn't." Kallima told Zen-Aku.

"What makes you say that and be so sure about it, keyblade wielder?" scoffed Zen-Aku.

"… Because of some of the way that I've seen you acted right now in front of me and back in the cave after you woke up 2 hours ago, Zen-Aku. You were at least nice enough to tell me about where the princess and her 6 guardians of the earth are before I ask them about whether they might or might not know of a way to help me leave this place. Then later on you try to lift my spirit with your flute dagger after I told you that they had no idea on how to help me to leave but that they'll try to help me." Kallima said/explain to Zen-Aku.

"Is that so… That's quite naïve yet kind of you to say it out to me, keyblade wielder." said Zen-Aku to Kallima before he fell into silence and raised his flute dagger close to his mouth for the second time and resumed playing the soothing and beautiful melody for her. Kallima closed her eyes and listen quietly to the melody of Zen-Aku's flute dagger for the next 6 minutes before he ceased playing it and lowered it from his mouth.

"That's a really good melody you played, Zen-Aku. I really like it." said Kallima as she gave Zen-Aku another small smile.

"I'm glad that it's to your liking, keyblade wielder. If you ever want to hear it again, I'll play it for you here on the boulder near the lake. As payback for you healing me and bringing me back from my near-death state." Zen-Aku told her.

"I'll remember that, Zen-Aku." said Kallima as she nodded to Zen-Aku before she stood up from the boulder she's sitting on. "I think I've sat here long enough. It's time for me to leave now, goodbye, Zen-Aku." Kallima told Zen-Aku (who nodded silently to her) before she turned around, summoned forth then threw her keyblade up into the sky for it to change into her gilder before she jumped then got on her glider and flew up to the sky where the Animarium island is.

XXXX

And so Kallima's live in the foreign world which Xehanort had thrown and confined her into begin. She'll helped Princess Shayla and her 6 guardians of the earth in their battle against the monstrous and powerful orgs and their master who called himself "Master Org". While at the same time she'll became close friends to the princess, her 6 guardians of the earth (who helped and failed to search for any ways for her to leave) and Zen-Aku (before the both of them slowly develop feelings of love/affections for each other and became mates together).

Sorry but no, I want the girl to have long blonde hair, a short dark green dress with a white bolero jacket over it and knee-length brown boots because that's how the girl look like in 2 of my stories/fanfics in Fanfiction, WyvernSeeker-san. If you can't do it then that's fine.
