A/N: I FINALLY GOT A REVIEW, FINALLY SOME ATTENTION TO THIS STORY ^_^
Zack: Thanks! I try my best to make their reactions genuine, and their personalities separate :)
Disclaimer: I do not own Mojang
It took a while but Puriti finally started to stir.
I looked up from my view at the floor where I had been lost in thoughts as I heard her groan in pain as her eyes fluttered open. I dashed to her side and looked down at her, wanting the first thing she saw when she woke up to be me.
"Z...Zen?" she asked with a weak and surprised voice.
I nodded and smiled "It's me. Don't worry, you're safe now from that clone of me"
She closed her eyes, as if trying to recall what happened.
"I...don't remember anything..."
I nodded in understanding as it made sense that she'd have lost her memory of the fight with Leaf if she got hit hard enough.
"Well I only got there after you were knocked unconscious, but rest assured your safe now" I smiled down at her brightly.
Her brows furrowed in confusion.
I blinked and tilted my head in confusion myself.
"You're in your shrine, your home. Don't you recognize it?"
She shook her head and sat up but winced when she moved her arm and left it sitting still when I told her it was sprained.
"I told you...I remember nothing...nothing but my name and yours, Zen."
I swear my heart stopped beating for a moment. She had to be joking...right?
"Y-you're joking right?" I let out a nervous and forced giggle.
She shook her head and looked around at the inside of her small shrine that she lived in. It wasn't very roomy, just one room with a bed and a table, as well as a few other small things.
I didn't want to believe it, but I never knew her to be that type of person, and the look in her eyes told me everything; she really didn't recognize her own home.
I stared at her for a few moments, unable to comprehend the reality of it.
She turned to me and saw my look "What?"
That's when I fainted.
I woke up a while later. I'm not sure how long it was. I saw Puriti floating around her home, inspecting everything, so I assumed it wasn't very long. I had been placed on the bed so I got up and floated again.
"Puriti...I might be able to get your memories back. There's somewhere I need to go that is the same place I'd like to take you."
She smiled at me in her usual manor I found so cute.
"Really? Lead the way!" I nodded solemnly and flew out of the shrine, remembering to pick up Leaf, who turned out to still be unconscious. A lot of her leaves had grown back though, so I wasn't afraid of picking her up.
Once I had a good grip on my clone I started heading towards Lake Acuity once again, this time with Puriti following behind me.
It was painful to see her looking around at her surroundings as if it was the first time she'd seen them, when in fact she'd lived here for decades.
Seeing as I was going much slower this time, it took over an hour even at a decently fast speed to get back. I headed into the cave once again and dropped Leaf on the ground and called out for Jinchi again, who appeared in a flash.
"Well I wasn't expecting you back so soon." he turned and noticed Puriti, who was looking at him curiously.
"What is the matter with Puriti?" he asked, a bit bewildered himself even as the being of knowledge.
I gulped. "S-she...got amnesia in a fight with my clone here..." I pointed to Leaf.
Jinchi had a surprised look on his face but quickly wiped it away.
"Well she didn't have her memories erased then, just lost. It shouldn't be impossible to get them back."
"Um...can I leave her here with you, since you're the expert on this?"
Jinchi nodded. "I don't have much do to these days besides get frustrated at the inaccuracies humans possess and fight over. I'll work on helping her."
I let out a sigh of relief. If she was with Jinchi, I had no reason to worry about her.
"Thanks again Jinchi." I looked down at Leaf who, even after many hours, was still unconscious. I had really done a number on her.
Jinchi followed my gaze. "I can't erase memories unless they can see my eyes, which is currently impossible in the state of unconsciousness. Leave it here; I'll take care of everything."
That reminded me "Where's water? Did everything go okay?"
Jinchi nodded and had a smile on his face. "It's currently out swimming in my lake. You probably couldn't see it. It's very good natured naturally."
I smiled, excited at what this could all mean once I was done with this ordeal.
The constant referring to my clones as 'its' got on my nerves, but I decided not to bother trying to explain it to him.
"Well... I have to go find more of them. I'm trusting you to take care of Puriti and the clones."
Jinchi nodded again and I left the cave, sitting on the island with my feet in the water. Even though it was a snowy climate here, the water was always a nice, luke-warm temperature.
I had decided to relax after non-stop fights; I was feeling quite drained.
I was starting to doze off when all of a sudden a wave of water splashed over me, causing me to sputter and spit out water since I wasn't prepared for it. I wiped the water out of my eyes and looked at the water to see what looked like the top half of a watery Mew above the water, but in actuality I couldn't see her lower half due to the blending. She was giggling at me in a playful manner now, which to me, was a heart-warming change. I decided to not be irritated and smiled at her, instead diving into the water as well to chat and play.
I couldn't see her so I tried to use the same tactic as when I was fighting her before; feeling the currents for where she was.
Even with that there were multiple times I lost track of where she was, causing her to laugh at me, which made me flush with embarrassment.
We played tag (which I eventually gave up due to frustration from my huge disadvantage) and e talked about what Jinchi had told her.
"He told me that me and my 17 other siblings were captured and experimented on, mixed with all the elements, and then brainwashed into being evil." she explained, "he told me that you were my relative and were setting out to save al the others from being evil" she smiled at that and I nodded with my own.
I liked the story Jinchi came up with; it fit well enough and she seemed to believe it.
After a couple hours my exhaustion got the best of me and I told her I needed to rest up for the fights ahead.
She frowned, disappointed but just went back to swimming while I floated up to the top of the cave. I lay down on top, closing my eyes and dozing off.
It wasn't very comfy, but it was enough.
I'd need the rest for what was up ahead.
A/N: I know it's shorter than the others, but this was just a perfect stopping point; I had to.
Also, the whole Puriti having amnesia thing is something I have planned for the future in Legendverse. It's not relevant to this plot, so don't think too deeply about it.
Thanks for reading and again please review!
