Chapter Two:
Interlude

"Heero?" Mnemosyne walked up to the teen sitting on the side of the shores of Styx. He opened his once closed eyes to glance at the blue-haired girl walking towards him.

"Hm?" He felt her sit beside him as he listened to the calming waters.

"Why are you here, again?" The girl questioned with tender eyes. Deep down, she felt fury at Lethe for helping Shinigami take away this teen's memories—the Fates decided that it wasn't time for his soul's departure. However, she also knew that her twin was following orders of their Lord.

"I don't know." Heero looked at the waters with a heavy sigh. He dropped his gaze and frowned, squinting into the clear water. There was a sparkle in the water. He reached forward, hands submerging into the cool liquid and coming back up when his fingers encircled around something.

Pulling it up, he stared at the object with fixation—it was a gold bracelet.

"Heero?" The brunette didn't divert his eyes from the shiny object, eyes locked on the golden band he held in his hand. He blinked, slowly.

Shingami came walking out of the throne room and glanced around, walking down hallways and eventually leaving the castle guarded by his fiathful little puppy, who had taken a liking to Heero as well, and eventually found himself at the shores of Styx.

Looking around, he saw two figures, one with easily spotted blue hair. Another walked up, this one with red hair. He looked lower and saw Heero kneeling on the ground, so close to the water that it could lap at his knees.

He frowned, "Heero?" The brunette didn't even bother to spare a glance at him. It was almost as if he hadn't even heard his name.

So, he walked over to the trio.

"What is that?" Mnemosyne innocently asked, tilting her head to the side as Lethe looked like she wanted to go run and hide from her. She had a smile on her face still, but it looked forced. Mnemosyne glared, hissing at her 'sister' over their telepathic link.

"I don't know."

"Yeah, right." Heero blinked, as if coming out of a trance as he shook his head and turned his body, bracelet still in his hand.

"What do ya got there, Hee-chan?" Heero froze as he turned around to see Shinigami looking curiously at what he had in his hands.
