Chapter 8: The Darkwing Before the Dawn
The wind whipped up and around Maris as she sauntered up along the cliffs surrounding the Great Maw, swirling her red hair out and around her as though it was trying to hold her tight. She could see the destruction the huge Whimsy had left behind after its fight with those three pests. It was too bad the creature had been damaged so heavily by the brats, but at least she could use it again if needs be. After all, the Soulless weren't the only creatures she'd learned to command. Like Restin, all four bowed before her for now, making her feel like the queen Restin said she was.
Silver eyes scanned for Vic, and she could fathom a guess why he'd called her out here instead of following the decrepit gummi ship Cid had given them. Even if she was wrong, Maris felt she could deal with the bounty hunter. If not, she di

"Wake up, child. This is no place to be lounging about."
Of all the possible voices Kairi could have woken up to, Braxis' was definitely on the low end of the list. She groaned, her eyes shooting open, and she immediately wished that she hadn't. Her head felt like someone had mistaken it for one of Wakka's blitzballs and her vision swam, making her feel nauseous. A dark hand was extended to her and she took it, knowing somehow that standing on her own was not a good idea. "Thanks," she muttered, her mouth feeling like it was stuffed with cotton. She tried to back off so she didn't look like she was relying on him, but it was a mistake and Braxis caught her as she swayed. He supported her to make sure she didn't fall.
"Hold on there, girl. No need to go running off. Give yourself a minute. Your mind needs to clear before you try walking anywhere." Kairi was

Chapter 7: Betwixt and Between
The trek back to the castle was haunted by a dour mood. The trio trudged back through the Bailey, depression filling their souls and worry clinging to them like wet clothing. Riku stared straight ahead, and he seemed to only react to changes in the terrain. He still had out The Way to Dawn, though he held it so loosely that it appeared he might drop it at any moment. Roxas was the opposite, his Keyblade at the ready, and he twitched at the slightest movement when he wasn't eyeing his two companions to make sure they were alright as often as he dared to make sure neither of them broke down. However, there was a haunted look behind his eyes and kept glancing at Riku as if afraid of him.
Namine stayed between them, her head down. If she hadn't been flanked by the boys, she didn't know where she would have ended up, and she

Chapter 6: Hope and Despair
The music was soft and lilting as the mass of frills and flesh danced in circles to it. It was an excuse to forget the dangers that lingered outside and enjoy their time together. The small group of musicians had to play loud enough to be heard over the hum of the gears as the castle made its way to Radiant Garden's central hub. Most of the residents of Figaro castle were used to it, and took the sounds in stride, adjusting to it for their guests. Namine had even goaded Roxas into dressing up and joining her out on the dance floor, the blond boy tripping over himself in an attempt to keep up with her. He was wearing one of the formal outfits another soldier had to make him presentable for the impromptu ball. It was just a bit too big, but Roxas was determined to make it work for her. It was a hilarious sight and
