Chapter 1: Vision in the Mirror
Hikaru sat on her bed. She replayed a scene in her mind that made her happy.
Next to her, Mokona sat playing with the sheets. Hikaru's bed was big with red covers.
Her room had a window that overlooked the ocean. Hikaru had long red hair tied in a
braid. She wore a dark red sleeveless dress. She was short and looked like a little girl.
"Puu pa puu" said Mokona messing up the bed. "Mokona" said Hikaru quietly. Mokona
popped up from under the covers and into Hikaru's arms. "Mokona I just made my bed"
said Hikaru putting Mokona down. Mokona bounced up and down looking at Hikaru
making her bed.
When Hikaru finished she sat back down and picked Mokona up. Mokona took
Hikaru's hand and looked at the ring on her finger. Mokona pulled it off and jumped
away. "MOKONA GIVE THAT BACK" shouted Hikaru chasing after him. "Puu pa puu"
said Mokona holding the ring above her head. Mokona jewel on his head changed to
blue, then green, then back to red. Then he bounced away with his ears flopping up and
down. Hikaru chased after him. "Oh Mokona please give it back" pleaded Hikaru.
Mokona stopped bouncing and walked over to Hikaru and gave her back the ring. "Lantis
gave me that after he proposed" she said putting it back on. The ring was gold with
prongs holding a red jewel in it. Hikaru remembered when he asked her. It was two
months ago and Cephiro has been in peace.
* Flash Back *
Hikaru sat on the edge of the stone fountain. Her hair was let down and she wore
a red shirt with a black skirt. She placed her fingertips in the water and made little
circles. A bird perched on her shoulder and softly sang. The bird was yellow with a white
belly. Hikaru smiled at the bird and took her fingers out of the water. Suddenly the bird
flew off of Hikaru toward a tall man with black hair. He had a long cape and armor on
him. Hikaru turned to see the bird perch on Lantis's shoulder. "Hi" she said softly. Lantis
walked toward Hikaru and sat next to her. Another bird flew and perched on Lantis's
"Hello Hikaru" said Lantis. Hikaru smiled at him and turned back to face the
water. The two remained quiet for a moment. "Hikaru I have to ask you something" said
Lantis breaking the silence. "Yes" said Hikaru looking at him. "Do you love me?" asked
Lantis taking Hikaru's hand. Hikaru pressed Lantis's hand against her cheek and
whispered, "Yes". Lantis smiled and rubbed Hikaru's cheek. "I love you to Hikaru" he
said scooting closer to her. Hikaru smiled warmly at Lantis. Lantis pulled out a small box
from his pocket and gave it to Hikaru. "You told me about the tradition in your world
that those who love each other should get married" said Lantis. Hikaru eyes widened as
she looked at Lantis. He had is eyes closed. She then opened the box and inside was a
"Hikaru will you marry me?" asked Lantis looking into Hikaru's eyes. Hikaru
shut her eyes and bit her lip. The birds flew away from them. Hikaru mumbled
something. "What?" asked Lantis. "Yes" she replied hugging him. Lantis hugged Hikaru
and then lifted her chin. The two stared into each others eyes lovingly and then they
As the scene played in her mind there was a knock on her door. "Puu pa puu" said
Mokona. Hikaru snapped out her daze and looked at Mokona. There was another knock
on the door. Hikaru walked over and opened it and outside was Presea. "Hi Presea" said
Hikaru. "Dinner will be ready soon Hikaru" said Presea. Just them Mokona came rushing
out of the room into Presea's arms. "Mokona what did you do?" asked Presea. The two
looked into Hikaru's room. Her bed was messed up again.
"MOKONA" shouted Hikaru. "What should be your punishment... should I pull
on your funny ears to see how far they go or should I boil you in a POT" said Presea
laughing. Hikaru giggles and Mokona smiled. "I'll be down as soon as I'm done" said
Hikaru. Presea nodded and left closing the door behind her.
Hikaru began making her bed again. When she was done she looked in her mirror
and fixed her hair. Suddenly there was a light whisper saying, "Hikaru". Hikaru looked
around and then shrugged it off. Then she heard it again only louder. Then again and
again. Hikaru looked around the room. "Who's there?" she asked. There was no
response. When she turned around to look back in the mirror there was Eagle Vision.
Hikaru gasped and fell back in fear. "E... E... Eagle" she stuttered. "Yes, its me" he
whispered. Hikaru's mouth went dry as she stared at Eagle. "But your dead" she said
softly. "I am Hikaru... but I came back because... I love you" he whispered. Hikaru then
felt scared and fainted. "This is to much for you my love" he whispered, "I'll come
back". With that he disappeared and left Hikaru alone in her room once again.
Several hours later Hikaru awoke in her bed. Beside her was Umi and Fuu.
"What?" she said getting up. "Miss Hikaru are you alright?" asked Fuu feeling her
forehead. Hikaru didn't answer. "You like scared us when we found you there passed
out" said Umi hugging Hikaru. "Were is he?" asked Hikaru. "Lantis is coming back he
left to get more water to cool you down" said Umi. Fuu pushed Hikaru lightly back down.
"You should rest you" said Fuu smiling at Hikaru. Just then the door slid open and Lantis
and Mokona walked in. "Your awake" he said softly. Mokona jumped onto the bed into
What happened to you? asked Lantis sitting next to her. "I... I... I don't
remember" said Hikaru looking at Lantis. "You must be tired you better rest" he said
kissing her on the forehead. "Come lets leave Miss Hikaru to rest" said Fuu. The three
left the room with Umi holding Mokona. When they left Hikaru looked at the mirror.
"Eagle" she said to herself.
Hikaru stared at the mirror and then got out off her bed. She walked toward the
mirror and when she reached it she pressed her hand against it. She stared at her
reflection and when she did the image of Eagle appeared and then vanished. Hikaru
gasped and backed away from the mirror. "It can't be" she said to herself. Hikaru shut
her eyes and walked back up to the mirror. She slowly opened them and saw her own
reflection. She sighed in relief and brushed a few of her loose hairs from her eyes. I must
be imaging thought Hikaru walking back to her bed
Suddenly there was a light breeze in her room. She looked toward her window
which was closed. "HUH?" said Hikaru aloud. Suddenly a gust of wind blew Hikaru
knocking her over to the mirror. "Hikaru" said Eagle. Hikaru stared at the image of a
Eagle in the mirror. "Hikaru... come with me" said Eagle. Eagle had his hand against the
other side of the mirror. Hikaru got up and pressed her hand against the mirror.
When she pressed her hand against. the mirror she fell threw. AHH she
screamed as she fell threw. Eagle caught her for hitting the ground. Hikaru looked up at
Eagle. He wore a black shirt and pants. He smiled warmly at Hikaru. Hikaru looked
around. "Your in the mirror" said Eagle. The world in the mirror was like being in a thick
fog. Hikaru clutched onto Eagle. Eagle is this real or is this a dream? asked Hikaru
resting her head against his chest. To me its my reality he whispered. "Oh Eagle..."
said Hikaru softly. Hikaru fainted in Eagles arms. Eagle laid her in her on the ground. He
brushed her hair from her face and smiled.
"HIKARU" said a voice. It was Master Mage Clef. "Hikaru were are you?" said
Clef. Eagle heard him and picked Hikaru up and carried her toward the mirror. Hikaru
fell out of the mirror onto the floor. Eagle vanished leaving Hikaru alone once again.
"HIKARU WE NEED YOUR HELP" said Clef louder. Hikaru woke up and looked at her
mirror. "Eagle" she said softly. Hikaru took one last look at the mirror and ran out of the
room to the throne room.
