A/N: My apologies for these drabbles getting shorter and shorter. :P It can't be helped.

Thanks: TopazDragon98. :)


~ He had never meant to coöperate with the villain. All he had wanted was to become a Master, like Aqua, so they could travel to other worlds together, since it wasn't smart to let a beautiful woman like her travel all alone. After all, not all guys were as good as he was. ~


V. - Villain

Terra held his head in his hands. "What have I done..." he muttered.

How could he be so stupid? It was only now that he had realized his mistake, after losing the only father he'd had in his life. But the road to hell was paved with good intentions it seemed.

He had never meant to coöperate with the villain. All he had wanted was to become a Master, like Aqua, so they could travel to other worlds together, since it wasn't smart to let a beautiful woman like her travel all alone. After all, not all guys were as good as he was.

Even if he knew that Aqua could take care of her just fine (she wasn't that defenceless little girl that he used to protect against bullies anymore*), he didn't feel comfortable leaving her by herself. He had heard what some men would say when she walked by, it was hard to miss, really. It varied, from a sweet infatuation to the least pure thoughts he had ever heard.

He had to set this mess straight again, before it was too late (before he would lose everyone else he cared about), but he wasn't so sure if he had the strength to go on and change things. Sure, physically he was very strong, but when it came to mental strength, Aqua had always beaten him at that.

Perhaps it was time to let her in in his life. He had never seen her as a gardian of any sort, but at the moment, it seemed so fitting. Aqua had always been good at making the pain disappear, whether it was with her soothing touch or the sweet words.

He had to find Aqua.


A/N: *This was a nod to one of my chapters in my other Terqua collection "All These Special Moments."

Next chapter: If he had to choose what he liked the most about Aqua, then he wouldn't be able to come up with an answer that soon. Not until she would smile warmly and kindly at him.
