"It's kinda sad. Dhaos was just trying to save his people, and we killed him, the only hope for his planet." Mint Adenade sympathized.
Arche Klein scoffed, "Don't feel sorry for him. He was an idiot. Why did he have to destroy Midgards and kill everyone involved with magitech? He could've just explained why he was sent to Aselia from Derris-Kharlan, he didn't need to kill anyone."
The six heroes were on their way back to the Yggdrasill Tree from their final battle with Dhaos. They debated on his motives; why he did what he did and why he didn't choose another path.
"We had to kill him." Suzu Fujibayashi said, "He had to pay for all the crimes he had done: killing Mint's mother, Arche's friend Rhea, Chester's sister, mine and Cress' parents, among hundreds of other innocent people. I feel no remorse for him."
Cress Albane laughed, "Suzu, do you ever feel anything?" He said jokingly.
Suzu smiled a little. She was raised in the ninja village of Mizuho and was always taught that a ninja should never show his or her true feelings.
Chester Burklight lightly punched his best friend in the shoulder, "Cress, don't make fun of the way Suzu was raised."
"It's fine." Suzu replied. "The customs of Mizuho are very different from the rest of Aselia. Most outsiders don't get us."
"If you haven't noticed, we're at Yggdrasill." Claus Lester pointed out. "Time to put up the barrier, Mint."
"Right." Mint chanted a spell and an invisible barrier appeared around Yggdrasill.
"Thank you." Before the heroes' eyes the spirit of the tree, Martel, appeared.
"It's fine." Claus answered. "Now the power of magitech won't drain the tree's energy and it will be able to produce a mana seed."
"Yes, and I will give this seed to the people of Derris-Kharlan. Dhaos' efforts were not lost after all." With this Martel disappeared back into the spirit world.
Suzu turned to the others, "Well, I guess this is goodbye." Tears started to form in her eyes but she wiped them away.
"It's ok to cry Suzu." Mint said. "I mean, after all you've been through."
"No, it's against the code of the ninja to show one's true feelings. I'll be fine."
"Ok, but don't push yourself too hard." Mint sighed.
Cress stared at Chester. Why was he looking around like that?
"Anyone else hear that buzzing noise?" Chester asked.
"What do you mean?" Arche questioned.
"I mean, it sounds like a giant bee is buzzing. It sounds like its coming from… Cress' sword?"
Cress pulled the Eternal Sword out of its sheath. Sure enough it was vibrating and creating a strange buzzing noise.
"That's weird. It hasn't done this before. I wonder what's up." Before Cress could ask Claus to summon Origin to ask him, a bright light emitted from the jewel on the sword and all six of them were engulfed in the light.
The light slowly pierced its way through the trees to reach Cress's eyes. He moaned as he opened them. It felt like someone flung him halfway across the world. He sat up and looked around. The other five were lying around him, still unconscious. Cress struggled as he tried to remember what happened last. All that came to his mind was a picture of a tree.
That's right! They were at the Yggdrasill Tree last! Mint had put a barrier around the tree so a mana seed could be formed. Martel was planning to use it to save the world of Derris-Kharlan. Suzu was about to leave when the Eternal Sword Origin had given them started acting strangely. But where in Aselia were they now?
"Ow, dammit my head…" Claus was the next to wake up. He noticed Cress was awake. "Where are we at now?"
"I…I don't know. I just got up a little while before you did."
"Well, let's get the others up then use the Eternal Sword to get back to Miguel."
Soon Arche, Mint, Chester, and Suzu were all awake. Cress reached for the sword but noticed the sheath was empty.
"Claus, we have a problem." Cress showed his empty sheath.
Claus sighed, "Then I guess we had better start walking."
"Save your energy. Let me scout out the area." Arche jumped up on her broom and flew upwards and out of sight.
"At least Volt's power still works. We're still in Aselia." Claus deduced.
Minutes later Arche returned.
"You guys need to come with me and check this out." They followed her out of the forest.
In the distance was a city so high it seemed to pierce the heavens. No one had ever seen anything like it.
"I think we should consult Origin." Chester suggested.
Claus nodded, "I who hold the pact, Great Spirit of all things appear before me! Origin, I summon thee!"
"What is it you wish to know Master?" Origin appeared from a flash of light.
"At what time period in Aselia are we in? Your sword reacted strangely when we were at the Yggdrasill Tree and sent us here."
Origin looked at the city in the distance, seeing it seemed to strengthen a conviction he already had.
"My apologies, but you are no longer in Aselia, Master." Origin spoke.
"What?!" Cress and the others exclaimed.
"Wherever you are now, that I do not know. As for the sword, I can feel its faint power. It has split back into two. If you can bring me the two swords once more I can form them back into the Eternal Sword and assure you a safe trip home. But my power is weak here; do not summon me or the other Summon Spirits unless you absolutely have to." With that, Origin disappeared.
"We need to find the Vorpal Sword and Flamberge!" Cress exclaimed. "Without them we can't get back to Aselia!"
"No." Claus rebuked. "What we need to do is go to that city and figure out where we are. Yes, finding the two swords is a priority but we need to learn about this world we're in. What it's like, what the people are like, and who we can find to help us. We're not from here; we'll need all the help we can get."
Suzu agreed, "Claus is right. We need to do the most logical thing right now."
"If we just run around looking for the swords it will more than likely bring us nothing but death." Chester added. "We should definitely learn about the world that we are in."
"Then it's settled. To the city we go." Claus started off and the others followed him.
Mint took Cress by the hand. "Do you think we'll be able to get back home?"
"We have to. I promised I'd rebuild Toltus. Not just to you and Chester, but to my mother and father also. I'll create the town of Miguel we saw in the future; I'll re-create my father's swordsmanship school. We have, no; we will get back to Aselia. I'm sure of it."
Mint closed her eyes, "I hope you're right." She whispered.
