"You are right..." A voice echoed through the forest, "you are not alone," with the last echo a tall figure fell from the trees, landing in front of Mareo and Alena; crouching the figure stood taller than Alena and had a swishing tail behind her, "Oh." Alena breathed a sigh of releif, "Its only the Star Onion Brigiade." Two other much shorter people with pointy ears appeared beside the Mithra, "Yeah we are the SOB, and we know what we can do and you'd better be afraid of us!"
The wind rushed through the dense forest, ruffling the leaves and clothes of the travelers as they stood at the standstill, "Alena...who are these guys? Do we need to fight them?" Mareo asked leaning close, "no, theyre always looking for a fight, they might even back down if..." Suddenly there were trumpts announcing the arrival of someone important, it seemed to echo through the forest and ring Mareos ears, the leader turned to the direction of the music, "Oh, what is the Star Sigil doing outside of Windurst! Shes not coming for us? Is she?" Using her cat-like reflexes picked up the two shorter people and dashed off into the woods, while the music grew louder and louder.
"Ah, there you are, just as I had prophecised." A small female voice echoed over the music, raising her right hand, "Please, come this way, I have lots to teach you Mareo, and Alena I understand you wish to communicate with your superiors?" They both starred at the shorter humanoid with longer-pointed ears, garbed in royal looking clothes with lining that shimmered even in the forest. They approached her and began to walk beside her, "are you the Star Sigil?" Mareo asked quietly, "yes I am, and I need to teach you to use magic right away so you can defend yourself." Alena shook his head, "hes quite capeable of defending himself, Star Sigil perhaps the only thing he really lacks is magic. I have seen him fight first hand and with some of those moves he impressed me." Mareo took a quick look at Alena, "Really? I impressed you?" She giggled, "only a little, but with the Star Sigil's help I bet you could even beat me one day."
They approached the city, with the royal music blaring full force, announcing the Star Sigil's return to Windurst, whoever saw her pass by fell to one knee and bowed their head. "They bow because I am their spritual leader and also the political persona between the rest of the nations." She answered Mareo's question before he could even open his mouth to speak, "Then have you seen the future?" He asked carefully, trying to read the Star Sigil's expression, "Only bits and pieces, some within the present, all of the past and glimpses of the future. I know they ancient Key chose you for a reason, and what Ive seen of the past, it never makes a wrong decision." Mareo exhaled a deep breath, and they contiuned to march on into the castle.
It was like a medivel castle of old: large towers reaching the sky with a moat of water surrounding the premies. "Alena, you can make your way to your chambers, straight down this hall and it will be the first door on your left" the Star Sigil pointed, and quickly two Windurst guards came to Alena's side to escort her down the hall and disappeared. "This is where we are going to train," The Star Sigil said, continuing to walk ahead of Mareo to a round, open room with a massive star-pattern on the floor made of brilliant, shining stone. Mareo took a deep breath, "The world where I came from had no magic whatsoever, and Im not sure if we ever had it..." His voice trailed off, shrugging her shoulders the Star Sigil responded, "thats nonsense, if you live and breath you have magic flowing through you; weither or not you are aware of it is a different matter. This pattern on the floor is designed to help bring your magical powers to the forefront of your mind. Lets start with a basic spell..." She lifted her right hand and it began to glow, starting from her elbow and gathering in her hand when it seemed to lift from her hand and mold itself into a small ball of fire.
Mareo's jaw dropped. "Now its your turn, feel the power flowing inside you and bring it out, take that fire that makes you who you are and bring it out..." Her voice trailed as Mareo closed his eyes, trying to find the fire she was talking about, he started to grow much warmer, and sweat started to form on his forehead, trying harder, it began to trickle down his face and drip from his nose. "Enough." the Star Sigil's voice echoed through the large room, his eyes shot open, realizing he was breathing hard he focused on the Star Sigil, "whats wrong?" She shook her head as she crossed the distance between herself and Mareo, "you might have been right, youve been at that for over 20 minutes now, take a rest on the bench and we will try again when you get yourself under control..." she motioned and they both walked over and took a rest. "I might be able to do it with the Keyblade..." Mareo spoke to himself, "Oh? is that the name of the ancient Key? Its very fitting...Keyblade." the Star Sigil spoke to herself, Mareo got to his feet and walked to the center of the room again.
Holding out his right hand, he focused his mind and in a shaft of light, the Keyblade emerged and he held it in his hand for a moment and let it drop to his side. "Im ready to start again Star Sigil," he called to her and she return to her spot. "Now...lets try this again, bring out that fire..." Mareo closed his eyes, concentrated and could feel a scorching heat coming from his core and rushing into this hands, he quickly opened them to see that the Keyblade had erupted in flames. "That is very impressive..." The Star Sigil said, slowly walking towards Mareo, "now can you do what I did and turn it into a sphere?" Mareo gripped the Keyblade in both hands and the flames slowly gathered into a central point at the end of the weapon, which then jumped into thin air and formed into a sphere. "I can sense the Keyblade bringing out the magical power inside of you, and you cant use too much of your magic; you will get tired very quickly and run out of energry." She gestured to the Keybalde, "may I?" Mareo looked once to her, then back to the weapon, "Sure, I dont see why not..." he said, handing the weapon over to her.
The Star Sigil wrapped her small hand around the hilt and her eyes shone with a brilliant white light, her hair began floating and she started to lift off the ground for a short time, then the weapon disappeared with a flicker of light and appeared in Mareo's hands again. "The Keyblade tried to show me the past, but it was too much; I was getting lost in the span of time, until it knew it was in the wrong hands and returned to you." She turned away, "that weapon is the single most powerful weapon I have ever felt: past, present or future and you are its keeper." the Star Sigil turned back to Mareo looking him deep in the eyes, "You are the master of the Keyblade and no one else. Not even your doppleganger can control it."
