Chapter 4 Give Me A Break
"*sigh* Aren't we done yet for today Albel?" Fayt asked panting.
Fayt and Albel were training nonstop in the forest. Fayt was completely all out of energy, while Albel still trained no matter how hard he was panting. They've both been training for 5 hours already, and the day was giving in to the night. Pretty soon Ciltz lit up, and looked the a beautiful utopia it is. Before he even knew it, Fayt collapsed onto his knees. Albel looked back and saw him.
"What's the matter Fayt? Is your foolish, weak body giving out on you already?" he asked him.
Fayt looked up and shook his head. "No...of-of course not..."
Albel looked away and continued his training. Fayt, trying so much to get on his feet again, knew he wouldn't, but alas he still tried. After about the 6th time,he finally got up, but his knees were shaking so badly, he thought they would give out on him again.
Fayt slowly walked over to Albel and picked up his sword. Albel looked at him and smiled.
"So you finally decided to train again." he said.
Fayt nodded. "You know it! I don't give in so easily!"
"Heh, are you so sure? 2 minutes ago you were on your knees." Albel pointed out.
"Just shut up and train!" Fayt ordered looking away.
Then for next couple of hours, Fayt and Albel sparred with each other until both of them were on the ground, completely out of energy. The night sky was a golden sight for Fayt. Albel on the other hand didn't seem to care. The stars were glowing brightly, and Fayt got lucky and saw a shooting star. He made a wish, but Albel accidently interrupted.
"2 days to go after this until we face that Valkyrie." he said.
"Yeah. Do you think we'll be strong enough to face her?" Fayt asked.
"Hmph, if only I knew the answer to that question..." Albel replied.
"FAYT, ALBEL!!!" a voice called. Both of them sat up and looked around.
In the mere distance, Tenshi was running towards them. Fayt and Albel remained in place, for their bodies wouldn't allow them to do much except sit.
3 minutes passed and Tenshi was with Fayt and Albel.
"Time to call it a day?" she asked.
Fayt nodded and cracked his neck in the process. Then he rubbed the back of
his neck. Albel for some strange reason just stared at his left palm, remaining
silent. Tenshi sighed and helped Fayt and Albel onto their feet. Then she took
them to Ciltz's inn.
"Just go upstairs and take a right and you'll be in the men's quarters. Don't worry, busy as this place is, there's enough rooms for you 2 to have your own." Tenshi said.
Fayt bowed. "Thank you. Good night." He headed upstairs with Albel and Tenshi stayed downstairs in the bar section.
"Good night...." she said turning away from the staircase and heading back to the bar.
