Last time in Wings of Night:
A swirling blue and white wave came crashing down toward them.
"Well this was a little unexpected, hang on tight to me Daisuke."
"How Dark; we'll both drown."
"Just hang on and hold your breath just in case. This dimension we're in is where unfinished works of art go. How we got here is a whole other mystery."
Dark then noticed a figure on dark wings coming in closer to them.
"Dark, hurry take my hand."
"Ebony, but how is that possible?"
"There's not a lot of time to explain, just take my hand please Dark."
Dark's hand reached out towards hers just as the wave came crashing down on them.
Chapter 2: Safe Wings, Tainted Gift
Emiko jumped as two strong gentle hands, placed themselves on her shoulders. She didn't mean to jump it was just that she couldn't relax till her baby was home safe.
"Oh Kosuke, you startled me."
"Dark and Daisuke still aren't back?"
Emiko shook her head, "No they haven't, Kosuke I'm starting to worry."
"I'm sure Daisuke's fine; you're just worrying to much that's all."
Emiko sighed as she leaned in to Kosuke's embrace.
"Oh Kosuke, I do hope you're right."
'So do I Emiko, so do I.'
"Dark, take my hand hurry."
Without another word Dark reached out to take Ebony's hand, just as their hands touched the strange huge wave came crashing down toward them. Pulling up into the air with Dark and Daisuke in her arms Ebony took off to a safer place for them to land. Once they where on safe ground Ebony pulled a violet feather out and began opening a doorway to the living world.
After opening the portal Ebony looked toward her back.
"Alright, Wen I know this will be asking a lot, but I need you to carry Daisuke for me."
Ebony then smiled at Wen's concern, her dark eyes seemed to be smiling at Wen.
"Thanks Wen, and don't worry I'll be fine."
'Meiko, we're going to have to make our own wings. Are you going to be alright with that?'
"Yes, I'll be alright."
"Alright, then let's get these guys home."
Two large beautiful dark violet wings sprang out from Ebony's back. Just as she was about to take off the sound of Dark's voice came to Ebony's ears.
"You…know you don't need to carry me."
Dark winced in pain for a moment.
"I'm perfectly…able to…do it myself."
His words only caused Ebony to giggle lightly.
"Of course you are Dark and if I sat you on your feet, you'd fall flat on your face."
Ebony then looked down at Dark's face; his eyes at the moment were closed.
"You can at least allow me to get you and your tamer home."
At Ebony's words Dark opened his eyes as his two dark violet orbs search for Daisuke. Once his eyes fell on to Daisuke's unconscious form, which was now in the arms of a carbon copy of Ebony.
"Daisuke is he?"
"He'll be fine for now. Now you need to save what little strength you have left."
Without wasting another minute, Ebony took off through the open doorway, with Wen following right behind her.
"This is kind of embarrassing, but oh well at least my rescuer is good on the eyes."
"You shouldn't be joking like that at least not in the condition that you're in."
Dark did his best to give Ebony a sly smile.
"Just call me a stickler for pain."
Satoshi did his best to pull himself up and off of the ground.
"Krad, what did you do to Daisuke Niwa? Answer me now."
"You want to know what I did Master Satoshi? Alright I'll tell you, I removed him from Dark's body and sent him into another dimension. Unfortunately, Dark Mousy's compassion toward his tamer caused him to be thrown into the dimension as well."
Satoshi couldn't believe what he was hearing, Dark and Niwa were gone. No it couldn't be true.
"You bastard, how could you?"
Krad smirked at the pain and discomfort Satoshi was now feeling.
"Very easily if you really must know, there is no love lost between Dark and myself."
Even if Krad did think he had won there was no way that he was going to let him keep going.
"You should know by now Krad that Dark and Niwa aren't that easy to get rid of."
His thoughts soon led him else where.
'Be safe Niwa, for now that's all I can do."
Once her feet gently touch down on the ground, Ebony then carefully laid Dark on the ground. Wen did the same thing with Daisuke, once his body touched the ground, it started to become transparent; Dark noticed it as well.
"We have to…return Daisuke's soul back…into his body."
Ebony just nodded her head, She knew that Dark was right. Daisuke's soul needed to be returned into his body along side Dark's.
"I'm not really sure what magic it was that displaced the two of you, but I will do what I can to fix it."
Closing her chocolate orbs for a minute, Ebony then focused her energy into the feather that lay before her.
"Spirits from the past and present, guide this soul back into the body in which it was born."
There was a flash of light and then Daisuke's soul vanished. Just as Ebony knelt down to help Dark up, he held up a hand to stop her.
"Wait…something doesn't feel right, Daisuke should have been reset in his body. Something is trying…to pull us apart from each other."
Ebony frowned at Dark's pained words, she had been afraid something like that would happen. If she knew just what had been done, she could have fixed it easily.
"Try to hold on Dark, to yourself and to Daisuke. I need to get you somewhere safe."
Ebony's eyes scanned the area she was in; she wasn't that familiar with everything here yet.
"With…With can help you make it back to the Niwa's home. Aaarugh."
Dark cried out as something seemly pierced his chest. His action only caused Ebony to worry about him more.
"Ebony, I think I know where Daisuke lives I can help."
Was the response from both With and Wen.
"Oh no, it can't be Daisuke, and Dark."
Her to bright emerald orbs were now dancing with worry as the three remaining Niwa family members stared at her. Emiko was the first to question Towa about her words.
"Towa, what is it what's wrong? Where is my baby and Dark?"
She then paused as she felt something else, causing her to spring to action.
"They're here, but something is very wrong."
A few seconds later With and Wen both came running down the stairs. A few minutes later they then rushed back up the stairs with towels and rags in their mouths, Towa's eyes widened in wonder, at the sight of seeing Wen.
"It…it can't be if you're here Wen then that means that she's…."
Without another word Towa ran for the stairs Emiko, Kosuke and Daiki following at her heels.
"Towa what is going on? Where are Dai and Dark, and who in the world is Wen?" Emiko questioned as she followed the eternal guide up the stairs. Emiko's questions were answered once they made it up to Daisuke's room.
"Towa, she's beautiful. Who is she?"
Towa's bright emerald eyes widened in surprise, she couldn't believe what she was seeing.
"She Lady Ebony, of course who else would she be? She's a legend and savor in the art world just like Dark is. I wonder why she's here after all of these years."
Emiko's eyes soon fell on Daisuke's pale form.
"Daisuke, Towa what's wrong with him why is he so pale?"
Just as Emiko was about to reach out and touch Daisuke, Kosuke put a hand on her arm and stopped her.
"Kosuke, what are you doing that's our baby."
Kosuke's dark eyes showed a deep sadness as he looked down at Emiko.
"I know that Emiko, I just don't think it would be a good idea to touch him right now. Something isn't right here."
He's words only served to confuse Emiko.
"Kosuke, what do you mean by that?"
Kosuke glance over at Daisuke before looking back at Emiko.
"Why is it do you think that we can see Dark and Daisuke at the same time? Something has pulled the two of them apart. From what I'm feeling it can't be anything good. As much as I love our son, I love you even more Emiko I can risk something happening to you."
Emiko gasped at Kosuke's words.
"You'll have to excuse me for being rude. As Towa has already told you I'm Ebony. I've done what I could to stabilize both Dark and Daisuke, if I could just figure out what magic he used in order to separate them."
Ebony's words confused them a little.
"Who are you talking about Ebony?"
"I'm talking about Krad that's who. He used an ancient magic to separate Daisuke from Dark."
Ebony glanced one more time at Daisuke and Dark.
"We don't have a lot of time. So we are going to have to hurry."
Ebony brown eyes narrowed toward the window.
Meiko's soft voice the asked.
"What are we going to do?"
"Well, kido we're going to have to fight him. Though I'm not sure what the out come will be."
"If it means that Daisuke and Dark will be alright then I'm all for it."
Ebony turned to look at Towa along with the Niwa family. Daisuke's grandfather stared at Ebony for a moment.
"Don't we know each other?"
Ebony just smiled at him.
"Yes, but that was a long time ago."
Towa's high pitched voice was heard next.
"Wait what are you doing, with the curse on you, you and your tamer could die."
Ebony gave Towa a weak smile.
"We both thank you for caring Towa, but in five months our life will be over any way. So why not do something good with the time we have. If we can weaken Krad enough it might be what we need to break the spell."
"Come on out Ebony I know you are there. There is a magical artifact that doesn't feel your presence here."
With a snap of her finger Wen turned into her deep violet wings. The wind blew her long purple hair behind her as she glided out of the window.
"You can't save them you know. If you would have left them in the dimension I had them in they may have survived. However back out here in this world they haven't got a chance."
"Maybe not, but I think we have an idea of what might work."
Holding a purple feather in her hand Ebony then threw it at Krad.
"Ha, you missed me, my dear."
"Did I really, Krad?"
Just then there was an explosion right behind Krad; which caused him to fall from the sky.
"You bitch just you wait, I'll show you pain that you have never felt."
"I really doubt that you could Krad we know a lot about pain and suffering."
'That's it, so that is the spell he used.'
"I know how to save Dark and Daisuke, Meiko but I'm not sure how drained you will feel. Especially since I don't have the energy to switch us out and keep you out."
"It's okay Ebony; you do what has to be done. I'll be fine, besides its not like I have a family waiting for me like Daisuke. Beside the gift of life is a special one, so we can give it back to Dark and Daisuke. Even if it is a little tainted because we die giving it to them. This is all I have known, so if we end up asleep for twenty years or so we'll still be together."
Meiko sounded so sure and happy and yet Ebony knew how sad her tamer really was; though right now none of it mattered. Saving Dark, the one person who still physically owned her heart and he didn't even know it.
Ebony winced in pain as her back hit something hard. It was then that she realized that Krad had her pinned again the tower of the Niwa home. The magic that he was pressing against her chest burned and straggled her at the same time.
"Tell me why is it that Dark has your heart and you would not look at me not once."
Was that grief that she saw pooling inside of Krad's golden orbs?
"I was created just like you and Dark, but free will was not one of the things I was given. When I was made my heart was given to Dark. Yet he doesn't know it. It was my punishment for being a fellow thief and so a curse as well."
Krad's right hand glowed yellow as he brought it closer to Ebony's stilled form.
"Am I Krad, look at me and tell me who I look like the most."
Krad however refused to look at her.
"Why would I even dream about believing you? You and your tamer would do anything to save Dark Mousy. If what you say is true then you aren't useful to me at all."
Try as she might Ebony could help but cry out in pain; if she was in pain then she knew then that Meiko was in pain as well.
"I'm afraid that I can't let you anywhere near the Niwa family; even if it means risking my own happiness."
Suddenly without any warning a blinking violet light was being given off from Ebony. Then in a blink of an eye she and Krad both disappeared. The only evidence that they had been there were a few white and violet feathers that lay on the ground below.
Once the light had faded Emiko looked out the window gasping at what she saw.
"Dad, Kosuke, Ebony and Krad they both have disappeared. What could have happened to them?
Towa looked very nervous as she looked from a sleeping Dark to a sleeping Daisuke who was getting color back into his cheeks.
"She has taken him into the void. It's a place that no work of art wants to go. It's where we go when we are no longer treasured in this world. If Ebony is hurt too badly we may never see them again. If that happens we might not ever get to talk with Mr. Dark or even Daisuke. Ebony's the only one I know who could break the spell that was used on them."
So what was the Niwa family going to do with Daisuke and Dark unconscious and the two people who could bring them back were gone stuck in another plain.
