Brave at Heart II
Hikaru, Umi, and Fuu once again met each other outside of Tokyo
Towers. The three girls greeted each other with hugs. "I can't wait to see
everyone." Said Hikaru happily. She was wearing a red sleeveless shirt,
black shorts and sneakers. She wore her hair in a braid as usual. "Yeah
know that were on vacation we won't have to worry about school." Said Umi.
Umi was wearing a white blouse, a blue skirt, and black tights; She wore
her hair loosely and had black boots on her feet. Fuu smiled and then
looked up at the sky. She was wearing a green skirt, a white blouse, and a
green vest on. "Let's get going." She said walking inside. Umi and Hikaru
nodded and followed her inside.
Once inside thew girl looked around and saw a few people around. "Oh
look its those chick pastries." Said Fuu, "Let's buy some for our friends."
Umi and Hikaru nodded and the bought a box of them. Then the three held
hands in the corner of the room and concentrated on the world of Cephiro.
In an instant the three girls disappeared into another world. The three
girls appeared in a small room where several chairs were placed around a
table. The three girls opened their eyes and looked around and saw no one.
"I wonder where everyone is." Said Umi glancing around.
They left the room and walked down a long hallway. "Let's go to the
throne room." Suggested Hikaru. Umi and Fuu nodded and they headed toward
the throne room. They reached the doors the lead to the throne room.
"Should we knock?" asked Fuu. "Or go in?" "Let's knock." said Hikaru
raising her hand and knocking the door. No one answered. The girls looked
at each other and then Hikaru knocked again. Again there was no answer. Umi
then walked forward and opened the door. The looked inside only to see
Hikaru, Umi, and Fuu walked in slowly and as soon as they were inside
the door flung closed behind them. "What's going on?" Hikaru gasped. Just
then there was an evil laugh. Hikaru looked behind her to see Debiru.
Hikaru screamed as he shot out a plasma ball at her.
Hikaru sprang up from her bed in a cold sweat. She screamed loudly
and clung onto her blankets. She breathed heavy and looked around. She was
in her room back in Tokyo. Just then her three brothers rushed into her
room and turned on the light. Hikari was they're looking up at the worried
Hikaru, too. "Hikaru are you alright?" asked her brothers. "I'm sorry it
was a bad dream." Hikaru said falling back on her pillow. "Would you like
some water?" asked Her oldest brother. Hikaru shook her head. "No, I'll be
fine." She replied. The three brothers nodded and filed out of the room
closing the door behind them. Hikaru's dog Hikari remained looking at her.
"You're still worried about me?" Hikaru asked her dog. The dog barked
softly and licked Hikaru. She smiled and patted his head. "I'll be fine.
good night." She said lying down on her bed and falling asleep.
Umi sat in her room staring at the ceiling. She rolled over and
looked out the window and looked at the moon and stars. She then sat up in
bed and stood up. "I just can't sleep." She said. She walked out of room
and down the hallway passed hr parents bedroom and down the stairs to the
kitchen. She grabbed a cup from the cupboard and then poured herself a
glass of water. She gulped it down and then placed the glass down. "Maybe
know I can get some rest." She said. Just as she began to walk up the
stairs she heard a scream.
Umi ran up to her parent's bedroom and saw they were gone. "MOM!
DADDY!" she screamed. Just then she felt someone grab her arm. Umi spun
around and saw Saiji staring evilly at her. "LET ME GO!" Umi screamed from
the top of her lungs. He flung her against the wall and then pinned her
there. "You will always be mine Umi." He whispered. "NO! LET ME GO!" she
screamed again and again.
"Umi, Umi dear wake up please!" her mother sad frantically. Umi
opened her eyes and got up breathing heavily. "Mom, Daddy!" she said
hugging them. "Are you okay?" asked her mother. "It was a nightmare." Said
Umi. Her mother held her closely. "It's okay sweetie." She said. Her father
left the room for a moment and returned with a glass of water. "Try to get
some rest." He said. Umi nodded and took the water and watched her parents
leave the room. She looked at the water but didn't drink it. She placed it
on her nightstand and rested back down on her bed.
Fuu sat by her window looking at the sky. "I miss you Ferio." She
whispered. She looked at the rings on her finger and smiled. She yawned and
laid down on her bed. She then turned of the light and fell asleep.
Fuu opened her eyes and saw the world around her dark. "Hello?" she
said looking around. "Fuu." Said a voice behind her. Fuu looked behind her
and saw Ferio. She smiled and hugged him. "Oh Ferio I missed you." She said
hugging him. "And I missed you too. Fuu." He replied kissing her. Just then
there was an evil laugh. Fuu looked behind her and clutched onto Ferio.
Just then Fuu felt Ferio slip away from her. She saw Ferio disappearing
from her. "FERIO!" she screamed. She ran after him but no matter how fast
she went she couldn't reach him. Suddenly Fuu tripped and when she looked
up Ferio was gone.
"FERIO!" she screamed but no response came. She slowly got up and
then felt someone take her arm and help her. "Oh Ferio!" Fuu said ready to
hug him. She turned around and screamed. Standing in front of her wasn't
Ferio it was Eri. He laughed evilly and held Fuu tightly. "My love." he
whispered. Fuu screamed again and then called out, "FERIO!"
Fuu awoke feeling sick and frightened. She was alone in her room and
everything was fine. She didn't want to wake up her parents or sister so
she fell back on her bed and attempted to get some sleep.
The next morning the three girls met at Tokyo Towers to go to Cephiro. Fuu,
Umi, and Hikaru yawned and greeted each other. "You guys look so tired."
Said Umi. "Just had a nightmare." Said Fuu with a yawn. "I'll live," said
Hikaru. "Shall we go?" The three girls joined hands and closed their eyes.
Then they disappeared with a flash of light to Cephiro.
The girls arrived in hallway where Ascot and Caldina were standing. "Well
look at that." Said Caldina. "Hi Caldina." Said Fuu. She came over and
hugged Fuu and said, "We missed ya' missies." Fuu smiled. Caldina then
hugged Hikaru and Umi and then she looked at them. "How long has it been a
week or two?" asked Caldina. The girls shrugged. Umi looked at Ascot and
smiled. She walked over to him and said, "Hi Ascot." Ascot blushed
slightly. He then noticed Caldina, Fuu, and Hikaru leaving.
Okay I'm going to tell her how I feel. He thought. "Uh. Umi. I. do. uh."
Ascot said turning even more red. "Ascot?" she said looking at him. "Uh
want to go with a walk with me?" he asked. Umi smiled and nodded. She then
walked next to him and slipped her hand into his and pulled him slightly
along. "I haven't been in the gardens for a while." She said. Ascot then
followed Umi to the gardens.
Fuu and Caldina walked down the hallway together. "So how have you been?"
asked Caldina noticing Fuu looked a bit tired. "I well had a bad dream last
night." Said Fuu. "Oh what about?" asked Caldina a bit curious. "I was with
Ferio and then suddenly something kept pulling him away from me and no
matter how fast I ran I lost him." She said a bit worried. "Then there was
this strange man in my dream. I don't know who he was but. it was as if I
met him before." Caldina noticed Fuu's worried expression. She wrapped an
arm around her and said, "Dun worry Fuu it was only a dream." Fuu nodded
and then smiled.
Just then Ferio appeared around the corner. He looked at Fuu and smiled.
Fuu smiled too. Caldina walked away and smiled. "Three's a crowed." She
said. Ferio took Fuu's hand and kissed it. "I missed you." He said. Fuu
smiled and then blushed slightly. "I missed you too." She said. Ferio
slipped out something from his pocket and gave it to Fuu. Fuu looked at the
dark green velvet box. She opened and saw a gold ring with an emerald set
in the middle. "Its beautiful!" she said. Ferio took it out and slipped it
on her finger. "Fuu I want you to marry me!" He said. She gasped and looked
down at the ring and then at Ferio. She didn't know what to say at first.
"I love you more then anything." He said. Fuu smiled and then said, "I love
you. and yes I will marry you." She said.
Ferio jumped up cheered. He hugged Fuu, swung her around, and then kissed
her. Fuu laughed and then she kissed Ferio passionately.
Hikaru walked around the palace looking for Lantis and Eagle. "Maybe there
at their rooms." She said to herself. She noticed she was closer to Eagle's
room. She walked over to his door and knocked on it. "Come in." a voice
called from inside. Hikaru slid the door open and looked inside. She saw
Eagle standing by the window. The curtains blew gently around as a cool
breeze filled the room. The sun was shining on Eagle's face. He looked over
and smiled at Hikaru. Hikaru blushed slightly. Eagle looked so handsome in
the light. Hikaru walked over to him and said, "Hello." Eagle smiled and
said, "Hello Hikaru." She gave him and quick hug and then stood next to
"How are you feeling?" Hikaru asked. "Fine a bit tired though." He said.
"It'll take some more time I suppose until I fully recover." Hikaru nodded
and then looked over to see the door slide open. Lantis walked in with a
tray of food for Eagle. "Hello Hikaru its nice to see you again." He said.
Hikaru smiled. Lantis placed the tray of food on the side table near
Eagle's bed. Eagle walked slowly to the bed. His feet slid against the
ground as he walked. He sat down and rubbed his legs and then looked at
Hikaru and Lantis. "Thank you for visiting but I'm going to need some rest
after I eat. we'll talk later I suppose." He said. Hikaru nodded and looked
at Lantis he placed his arm around her and led her out of the room.
"How come Eagle hasn't fully healed?" asked Hikaru once they were in the
hallway. "I thought he was suppose to be back to normal right away." Lantis
looked at her and shook his head. "He's tried but he says his body still
feels weak, he might get better but he needs time." Lantis said. Hikaru
nodded. As she walked with Lantis she thought about something. Is this a
price we had to pay because of my wish for none of this to happen? Hikaru
thought. Is it because of what happened with the three brothers?
As the young women from another world visited Cephiro in another dimension
stood the creator. "Is it a price which they must pay?" asked Rayearth.
Mokona looked at him and nodded. "I saved their lives. I interfered. I am
not aloud to do that." Mokona said calmly. Rayearth looked down and then
nodded. "When altering an event comes a price." Said a voice from behind
Rayearth. It was the dragon Celes and next to him was Windom. "Eagle Vision
of Autozam might fall back into a coma am I correct?" asked Windom. Mokona
nodded. "A sad fate but no matter what choices we make there is always a
price." said Mokona. The three spirits looked away from their master. "And
next time we are forbidden to interfere." Said Rayearth sadly. "Yes. this
is the last time we shall be able to see them. I wish them well." Said
In the far reaches of space a light sped across pass the planets and stars.
Faster and faster it went until it came to a small planet far from any
other planet. The light sped through its atmosphere and crashed into the
land. The people near by emerged from their slumber to see what the noise
was. They came to the huge crater and saw nothing but dust at first.
Suddenly something emerged from the dust. A male figure with long hair and
black armor. The people's eyes widened and then they fell to their knees
and bowed to their master. Debiru looked around and smiled. "Brothers."
said the voice of Kenzi. "We are home."
He moved through the crowed and looked around. He looked at the home which
technology and magic made. He walked passed the people and then he used his
magic to float into the air. He then disappeared and reappeared in a
palace. He looked around as many servants looked at him. An old man with
white hair, black robes, and a walking stick stepped forward. "Welcome home
my lords." Debiru smiled.
Presea sat drinking tea. Primera was sitting on the table just enjoying her
company. Just then Caldina and Lafarga entered the room. "Hello Caldina,
Lafarga." Said Presea. "Would you like to join us?" asked Primera. "I'd
love to." Said Caldina. She sat down next to Caldina and Lafarga sat next
to her. Presea poured them some cups of tea and then handed it to them. As
soon as they began to drink some tea the door opened and Fuu and Ferio
entered the room. "Hey you two." Said Caldina sipping her tea. "Why you so
happy?" Fuu smiled and held out her hand with the ring on her finger. "Oh
what a beautiful ring." Said Presea. Just then it hit them. "OH MY YOU
TWO!" Caldina gasped. Ferio nodded. "Congratulations." Said Lafarga. "I'm
going to find Umi and Hikaru okay?" asked Fuu. Ferio nodded and ran after
Fuu as she ran off.
Umi and Ascot walked through the gardens. The flowers were blooming nicely.
Umi looked a beautiful blue blossom. She bent down and smelled it beautiful
fragrance. Ascot looked at her and then pulled out a white blossom. I'll
give her the flower and tell her. He thought. He walked up behind her and
was about to say something when Umi got up and spun around. Umi bumped into
Ascot and he dropped the flower he was holding and forgot what he was going
to say. "I'm sorry Ascot are you okay?" she asked. Ascot turned red and
nodded. Umi smiled and then walked toward the little pond.
Ascot sighed miserably and then picked up the flower and then went to catch
up with Umi. Umi knelt down to look at the little fishes in the pond. "How
pretty." She said seeing a water lily. Ascot gathered up his courage once
again. "Uh Umi." He said. Umi got up and looked at Ascot. "Yes?" she asked.
Ascot forgot again what he was going to say. Ascot turned red a little bit
and then turned away. "Ascot are you okay?" asked Umi. Ascot turned around
and on accident he knocked her and she stumbled backwards. In an attempt to
regain her balance she grabbed onto Ascot who lost his balance and the two
fell into the pond. Both were soaking wet and looking at each other.
Umi's hair was all in her face and clothes were drenched. Ascot's hat fell
off and he was looking for it. "Where did it go." He asked. Umi laughed and
picked up his hat and put it on him but even more water fell on him. Ascot
groaned but Umi just began to laugh. "What's so funny?" he asked. "You look
so funny all wet." She said between gasps. "Oh yeah you should look in a
mirror!" he laughed. Umi looked at her reflection and burst out laughing.
Just then Umi saw the white blossom Ascot was going to give her. She picked
it up and looked at it. It lost a few petals but it still looked pretty.
"Oh its so pretty." She said. "I was uh. going to. give. uh the flower. to.
you." He said. Umi smiled and sniffed the flower. "Thank you!" she said.
The two then began to laugh again.
"Are you okay?" asked Ferio who was standing with Fuu. Umi and Ascot looked
up and saw them and nodded. "You guys look so funny!" he laughed. Fuu
giggled a bit and the two walked over to the pond. Umi glanced at Ascot and
nodded her head toward them. Ascot smiled. "Can you guys help us out?"
asked Umi. Fuu and Ferio looked at each other and nodded they reached their
hands out to them but instead of pulling them out Ascot and Umi pulled them
in. Umi and Ascot laughed as their friends got out of the water. Despite
their anger Fuu and Ferio couldn't help but laugh too.
"So what brings you guys out into the gardens?" Umi asked as they got up
and out of the pond. Fuu smiled and held out her hand. "You got a ring?"
Umi said examining her hand. Fuu laughed. "Ferio gave it to me!" She said.
Umi's eyes widened. "Oh my god!" she said surprised. "OH MY GOD!" she
screamed happily. She hugged Fuu and then hugged Ferio. "Congratulations!"
said Ascot with a smile.
Eagle felt tired as he lay back down in his head bed. "Why am I feeling so
weak?" he said to himself. "Maybe I should sleep more." He pulled the
covers over him and rolled over to fall asleep.
Hikaru and Lantis walked into the throne room to find Guru Clef. "Hi Clef!"
said Hikaru happily. He smiled and said, "Hello Hikaru." Just then Fuu,
Ferio, Umi and Ascot burst into the room. All four were soaking wet. Water
was dripping down from their hair and clothes. "What happened to you guys?"
asked Hikaru noticing how wet there where. "Oh we just went for a swim."
Umi giggled. Fuu laughed and then said, "Hikaru, I'm getting married to
Ferio!" Hikaru gasped and jumped for joy. She ran and hugged Fuu. "I'm so
happy for you." Said Hikaru.
"We should go tell Eagle." Said Hikaru. She took Fuu's hand and the two
girls ran down the hall. Ferio smiled and then noticed the huge puddle of
water they left behind. "Sorry Guru." He said. Clef smiled. "Its all
right." He said. "But you better dry off before you catch cold." Ascot,
Ferio, and Umi nodded and turned to go change into some dry clothes. Lantis
looked at Clef and shook his head and smiled.
Fuu and Hikaru got to Eagle's room. The door was closed. Hikaru softly
knocked on the door and waited for a response. The light turned on and
someone said, "Come in." Hikaru and Fuu walked in and saw Eagle on the bed.
"Hey Eagle!" Hikaru giggled. He looked up and smiled as the two girls
entered the room. Eagle sat up in his bed. "What brings you here?" he asked
tucking his knees under his chin. Fuu cleared her throat. "I'm getting
married to Ferio!" she said happily. Eagle's eyes widened and then he
smiled. "That's great congratulations!" he said. "I'm happy for you!" Eagle
was about to get up when a sudden pain surged into his legs and he fell to
"EAGLE!" Hikaru shouted running to his side. "Are you okay?" she asked
helping him up. "My legs hurt." He whimpered. Fuu and Hikaru helped Eagle
back onto the bed. Suddenly another pain surged into him and clutched his
stomach. He groaned and Hikaru held onto him. "Eagle, I'm so sorry." Said
Fuu. Eagle shook his head. "It's not your fault. I should have been more
careful." He said. Fuu looked at him sadly but Eagle smiled to reassure
her. "I just need some rest." He said resting his head on his pillow. Fuu
left the room so he could rest but Hikaru stayed.
Eagle looked up at her and smiled. "I will be okay." He said. Hikaru looked
at him and frowned. "Eagle." she said with a tear going down her cheek.
"Please promise me you'll be okay." Eagle smiled. "Seeing you makes me
stronger." He replied. He touched his hand to her cheek and gave her a
tired smile. Hikaru smiled back and then hugged him. Eagle hugged her as
well and when the broke his hands fell to his sides. "Good night Eagle."
She said stepping away from his bed. She walked to the door slowly and then
turned to look at him. He smiled and whispered, "Good night Hikaru."
Ascot walked to his room and undressed out of his clothes and hung them to
dry. He wiped himself with a towel and then placed on some dry robes. He
walked barefoot to his dresser and looked for his brush. He brushed out his
hair out of his eyes. He looked at his eyes and smiled. He shook his head
and was about to brush his hair to its usual style when there was a knock
on the door. He sighed and walked over to the door. He grabbed the knob and
flung the door open. Outside stood Umi. She had a cheerful smile on her
face. She was wearing long blue pajamas and a robe over them. Her hair was
tied back with a clip. In her hands was a tray of tea. "Hey Ascot." She
said cheerfully. "I thought you'd like some tea." Ascot let her through and
she walked in setting the tea on a table.
Ascot blushed a little as Umi was preparing the tea. I should tell her I
like her now! He thought. She looks so pretty with her hair tied up. and in
those blue pajamas. Ascot mentally slapped himself back to reality. He then
walked over to Umi and sat down in a chair. She handed him a cup and sat
down across from him. She picked up her teacup and drank some tea. "So what
were you gonna tell me at the garden?" she asked. Ascot was looking at the
teacup. It was a beautiful white color with a light blue flower on it. "Um.
well." he said a bit uneasy. Umi smiled and drank some tea. "Ascot you can
tell me anything." she said. Ascot placed his teacup down and got up.
He walked over to the window. He looked out at the night sky. Umi looked at
him and blushed a little. He looked so cute in his robes and bare feet.
"Ascot. your eyes are cute." She said walking from behind. "You should wear
your hair more often like that." She said. Ascot smiled and turned really
red. "UMI! I WANTED TO TELL YOU. I-I-I L-L-LOVE YOU!" he yelled on
accident. Umi looked at him for a moment. Ascot began to freak. Just then
he was about to run away when Umi grabbed his hand. Ascot stopped and
turned back to her. She placed his hands against her cheek and whispered "I
love you too, Ascot."
Fuu walked into her room and changed into her green nightgown. She dried
her hair and wiped her glasses. Just as she was about to hop into bed there
was a knock on the door. Fuu grabbed her robe and flung it around her
shoulders. She walked over to the door and opened to find Ferio. She smiled
and before she could say anything Ferio kissed her. "I missed you." He said
with a grin. Fuu blushed and said, "We were only separate for an hour."
Ferio interrupted, "A second away from you is an eternity to me." Fuu
blushed and hugged Ferio.
Debiru, or well the three brothers, walked into their castle. The castle
was the biggest structure in the entire planet. It was a strange looking
castle. It was strange though. It was made of stone and yet it was as if
technology was mixed with it. Debiru followed the old man into a chamber.
Several guards were around the room. All Debiru had to do was glare at them
and they all left. The doors were shut and Debiru sat in his throne.
"Alright old man change us back." Said Kenzi voice. The old man scratched
his chin and said, "Um. well." Debiru glared at him. "LISTEN OLD MAN WE
WILL NOT GOING TO ASK YOU AGAIN!" Saiji's voice boomed. "I can't change you
back to your normal bodies." He said. "WHAT!" Eri roared.
Debiru grabbed the old man by the collar and growled. "Why not?" he asked.
The old man pulled his collar calmly out of the tight grip. "I told you why
before you left." He hissed. "I said that when you combine you three cannot
return to your normal bodies because your genes have mixed and it be
impossible to separate them without losing something vital to your damn
existence!" He glared at him. "I told you that combining into one will make
you stronger but only do it if there is no other choice." Debiru flew into
a range he began to blow up the room. The old man watched and then shook
his head. "There is a way. you guys can have new bodies." He said. Debiru
stopped and looked at the old man. "You can't have your old bodies back
but. I can release your souls. so that you can find a new body." He said.
"What do we do?" asked Kenzi. "You find a body the you like and enter it!"
The old man explained. "Then when you have you must place the person's soul
of the body you entered into submission to have full control of the body.
But I must warn you must place the soul of the person's body you've taken
over slowly. or the person's body will die and you as well."
Debiru smiled and then looked at the old man. "Let's begin." He said. "But
we must find some bodies." Debiru interrupted, "We know what bodies we want
old man. begin the process." The old man nodded and held out his walking
stick. "Dark power hear my prayer give me the power of darkness." The old
man chanted. "LIGHT TO DARK, DARK TO LIGHT, LOVE TO HATE, HATE TO LOVE,
BODY TO SOUL, SOUL TO BODY! SEPEREATE SOUL STRIKE!" He then smashed his
cane against Debiru. The body of the combined brothers fell to the ground
and then three ghostly figures flew out. The three souls were black instead
of white though. The briefly look at the old man and then flew away.
Back in castle Cephiro Umi and Ascot were laying on a blanket outside on a
balcony. Umi's head was resting on Ascot's chest. "The stars are so
pretty." Said Umi. "Yeah." Said Ascot. As the two watched the stars the
ghostly figure of Saiji appeared. He looked at them and growled. Lucky for
Saiji they could not see him. Saiji glared at Ascot. His anger flooded and
then he entered Ascot with so much force causing him to jump up and cough
heavily. "ASCOT ARE YOU OKAY?" Umi asked holding onto him. A speck of blood
came from his mouth but he wiped it away. "Yeah I'm fine." He replied with
an evil grin
Eri watched Fuu and Ferio kissing. It disgusted him. His anger built and
walked over to Fuu. His hand when through her. Fuu shivered and that broke
their kiss. "You okay?" asked Ferio. "Sorry just cold." she said. Ferio
smiled and wrapped his arms around her. Eri stood in front of Ferio and he
ran right into him. Ferio stopped and shook his head. "You okay?" asked
Fuu. "Yeah. just a sudden headache." Said Ferio. Fuu hugged Ferio and
smiled. Ferio then kissed Fuu long. When he broke Fuu was surprised. "You
must really miss me!" She joked. Ferio smiled and said softly, "You have no
Kenzi walked into the castle and entered several rooms looking for someone.
"Where is he?" he wondered. Just then he entered a room, the room where
Hikaru slept. He looked at the beautiful sleeping red haired magic knight.
He walked over to her and gazed at her beauty. He bent down and kissed her
softly. Hikaru twitched in her sleep and rolled over. "You will welcome my
kiss." He said evilly and floated away. He then finally came to a room.
Outside the room stood Lantis. Kenzi glared at him and sent his hand into
his heart and grabbed it and then pulled his hand away. Lantis clutched his
chest in pain. Kenzi laughed and entered the room. where Eagle slept. He
walked over to the young man and glared at him. "You ruined everything.
you. ruined my life. and know I shall have yours." He hissed and then he
entered Eagle's body.
Authors note: UH OH the three brothers taking over bodies. What's going to
happen now that Mokona can't help them anymore? What's going to happen to
Eagle, Ferio, and Ascot? Will Umi, Fuu, and Hikaru be able to save them?
Well this is it for chapter one. until next time this is Princess Hikaru
