Re: Star Ocean 3 fanfic: Anywhere But Home
Chapter 8 He's Alive!?
"Wait, we're are you taking me?" Fayt asked Kitsune.
Kitsune sighed and released Fayt's wrist. She then turned around and brushed some hair that hung in her face back.
"To the weapon and armor shops of course! I have to get you prepared for the tournament. But before that, I gotta take to the next town." Kitsune replied.
Fayt cautiously eyed Kitsune. "Why?"
Kitsune turned back around and walked off, leaving Fayt behind. Fayt decided to, follow despite where Kitsune might take him.
*30 minutes later*
"Uhh, Kitsune..." Fayt began to say, looking around at where he's at.
Kitsune didn't say anything, and continued to lead Fayt to a mansion. Opening
the doors she turned around and smiled. As Fayt walked inside, his expression
on his face went from confusing to surprised.
"Welcome to Xenobia's main point in accessing information of all kinds." Kitsune said leading Fayt inside the mansion.
As Fayt and Kitsune walked inside, a gothy teen about 17 years old greeted them.
"So, you've finally came back, Miss Kitsune." the girl said.
"Ah, hello Maya, where is he?" Kitsune asked.
"He? Oh, you mean that-"
Kitsune interrupted by nodding her head. Maya then showed Fayt and Kitsune
to a room with a particular looking door. It was black with symbological writing
on it, outlined in a bloody red.
Maya stood in front of the door and recited the words on it. Before Fayt knew it, the door opened and complete darkness poured out. Fayt sort of stepped back, but Kitsune shook her head and stopped him. Fayt then went back to his original position. After that Maya used some symbology cast the darkness
When the darkness disappeared, Maya signaled Fayt and Kitsune to follow. Fayt wanted to ask what just happened, but for some strange reason, he throat felt paralyzed and so he couldn't speak. Following Maya into the room, Fayt felt a sudden jolt to his heart.
"Here, this where he's at. I take you no longer need my assistance?" Maya asked.
"Thank you for your help Maya. You are relieved." Kitsune said smiling.
Maya left and went back to whatever she was doing. Kitsune took Fayt's wrist and pulled him inside the room. A light blinded Fayt's eyes, so he covered them, but the light quickly faded and Fayt was able to see again.
Fayt silently followed, and as he entered, his heart almost literally stopped. Sitting on a chair and looking out the window dazed, was him!
"But...but this isn't possible! I-I thought he was dead!!" Fayt exclaimed.
Kitsune looked away. "I guess what you always think is wrong." she said.
The person looked at Fayt and Kitsune.
"Hmph, so the worm finally shows himself!" the person said getting out of the chair.
"Albel...." Fayt faintly said to himself.
Kitsune closed the door on her way out, but she was stopped by Fayt.
"Why didn't you tell me?" he asked.
"I....I dunno...." Kitsune responded sadly.
"After having me suffer so much? How cruel of you....and Tenshi..." Fayt continued.
"I'm...I'm sorry." Kitsune apologized, her eyes tearing up.
Fayt sighed and Kitsune left the room.
Albel smiled and eyed Fayt.
"Fool! What took you so long!?" he asked throwing a book at the back of Fayt's head. Fayt winced in pain and rubbed his head where the book had hit him.
"Well, it's like this......." Fayt began
*5 minutes later*
"I see. So you thought I died? Me? Albel the Wicked?" Albel asked.
"Don't be boasting here. I really did think you..."
"Idiot." Albel said. "Stop thinking and act on instinct! It'll save you the trouble
of giving you problems!"
As Fayt and Albel argued, Kitsune came in the room.
"I don't mean to interrupt your convo, but we need to get back to Ciltz to ready ourselves for the tournament." she warned.
Fayt looked at Kitsune then Albel.
"Well, I'm ready. What about you?" he asked Albel.
Albel smiled childishly. "You know it!"
And so all 3 left Xenobia and headed back to Ciltz, where the big event was about to unfold.
