Authors Note: So... I spend two weeks away. Not that you'd have noticed as I've had a great friend posting for me. Anyway, during me time away, I realised ending Point of War here would be better. So... This is the end of Point of War. Without question. That then means you would be having 4 stories instead of 3. Wrong. You will be having 5. Why? Well... I like having an odd number of books. That is more or less the only reason. :L However, in splitting it up I've managed to fill out more gaps and you should get much more than you had originally. The sea air of Cypres does this to you. Anyway, I do have content for you this chapter. Very little content. But content none the less. Then a final Authors note as I've done before with all the thank you's and all that jazz. Anyway, I do hope you enjoy this very brief chapter.
Chapter 43: An Old Man's Report.
As time flew by, and battles were fought amongst the worlds, time seemed to past so quickly. It was nothing physical, but days were shorter. The key wielders and their friends hid out for a long time, letting Pure Light and Total Darkness fight amongst themselves. Obviously it wouldn't work for that long, and it didn't.
No matter what you thought, this war was going to change everyone. It already was.
However, in the stress, and the pain, the wielders almost forgot that strange old man who had saved them. Who had questioned them, who had confused them. He disappeared from memory.
Floating in the emptiness that was the void between the worlds, was a small hard covered book. In that book rested one piece of paper, but behind it, the spine clearly showed the rest had been ripped from it.
That single piece of paper had writing on it.
To say that things were going to be easier now that the wielders are together, would be a lie.
To say that things would be easy now that Ray is back, would be an even greater lie.
In fact, in terms of Ray, I know I've only made things worse.
And Liam. That boy...
I know how this story ends. I know how everything plays out.
I know who dies, and who lives.
I know some of the greatest secrets this universe holds.
And to share any of these, would only change time further.
Time travel only ruins things. But I won't change time, I have never, as I've spent too much time fixing the things that are wrong.
Time is something that should never be touched. But I had to see these things, and fix the lines that were broken.
Now, to anyone that is reading this. Good luck.
But no matter how dark the future seems, you can't give up.
I have believed many times that everything was over. But in carrying on, brought me here.
Where I was able to see the things I could never see.
You will win this war, but that doesn't mean the end would be in sight.
There's something far worse on it's way.
But one step at a time.
An old and unnamed man.
As the note ended, a scribble was shown where the old man had tried to write his name. However, it came out in just a scribble. Had he changed his mind about writing it, or was he unable to write it.
Whatever the answer was, no one would ever see this paper.
As not only had Pure Light and Total Darkness taken the fights to the worlds but also the space in between. It was this fighting, that destroyed that old book.
Point of War's Final Authors Note: So... That's it. I haven't really thought about what I'm going to say here, so I'm just going to babble as I always do. :P Anyway, as always I am incredibly thankful for all the reviews, for all the help with my now quickly improving grammar, and for just being such genuine people (Those that review anyway). Don't get me wrong however, my readers are my readers, and if I keep getting the views it must mean that you're coming back to keep reading. So, I'm thankful to you all as well. But a quick review just to tell me you exist is greatly appreciated. :D Come on, we're all friends here, and these reviews can go from short responses to full blown 150 message conversations. :P :L
Anyway, some quick shout outs to people as I always do. :P As always a big thank you to Forevermagik13 for sticking with me all this time. Through stress and terrible grammar. Thank you Magik, as because of your help I managed to improve my English which did help me getter a better grade in school.
Next a thank you to KumoFuzei. Not only have you listed my errors so that I don't have to find them myself later when I rewrite, you've been kind and have become so interested in the plot. I really don't know what else to say, but you've been a great help.
Next a thank you to everyone who has supported me, over the internet or in real life. With help with planning to just keeping the will to keep going. So thank you to everyone.
Now, Point of War has now become exactly what the title says it is. It's the point of war. Now the war itself. Next story shall be the war, then the 4th will be what comes after that. Then the 5th shall be answering all questions that were or shall be left unanswered. That's the plan, and that's what shall happen.
But so that I don't keep you any longer. Thank you for sticking with me all this time, and I hope you continue to do so into the future of this series. The next story, shall be titled 'Kingdom Hearts: The Endless War'. Also, finally giving this series it's name. It's a kind of boring name I know, but I don't mind. As that's what this is to my characters, and the readers should know that.
Finally, some stats about this series as a whole:
Kingdom Hearts The Lost Keys reached a huge landmark for me, of 99,320 words.
Point of War, has now amazingly reached 121, 297 words. The longest thing I have ever written.
Overall that means, I have written 220,617 words. A massive achievement for myself, and I am thankful to you all, as you're the reason I want to continue. :)
The Lost Keys at this point in time has 47 reviews and 2,342 views. While I don't get that many reviews, I really don't mind. I'm just thankful for the reviewers I have.
Point of War at this time has 77 reviews. The increase because of more chapters. It has 1,921 views. I am sad that views have been lost, but what can you do. So I'm just grateful for those that has stayed with me. :)
Overall then I have had a great total of 124 reviews and 4263 views. Which I can hardly comprehend. So thank you so much.
One last piece of info for you guys. As I have already said, this is the end of the 2nd part of this story. Part 3 will be coming very soon, and I do hope you enjoy.
