Sora looked up at Sam who's Keyblade was pointed at his head, his eyes lacking any emotion what so ever as if he had done this sort of thing hundreds of times and as a result had become completely desensitised against it. As Sora struggled to hold on to the ledge he couldn't believe what had just happened, did he just lose?
"You're wondering why you lost aren't you" Sam said in a monotone voice, "You measured my strength by my age didn't you. That is why you lost" Sam bent down, "Do you want to know something? I have had my Keyblade for longer then you have had yours"
"What?" Sora asked
"I received my Keyblade at the age of five. By the age of eight I became a Keyblade master"
"Master" Sora repeated, "You must find a Keyblade master who can teach you these stages"
Sam was now standing up straight, "Do you want me to tell you why I attacked you?" He asked, "Because it was my destiny.
"Destiny?" Sora asked
"This blade's specific goal is to stop your Keyblade" Sam was suddenly angered by the confused expression on Sora's face, "Don't you get what I'm telling you Bastard?! My destiny is to see you dead in a pool of your own blood!" Sam touched Sora's face with his Keyblade; "However" Sam's Keyblade disappeared, "ones destiny is not set in stone, Choices are what set ones destiny and I choose long nearly a year ago not to kill you" Sora brought his over hand up onto the pavement and pulled his torso up, finally he brought his legs up and stood up
"So what was the point of fighting me" Sora asked
"Point?" Sam replied, "Maybe I didn't have a point. Maybe I just wanted to fight another Key bearer, or maybe I wanted to see your strength"
"So this was just some test to you?"
"Like I said, maybe I didn't have a point" Sam replied as he turned his back on Sora and began to walk, "Laguna, get rid of this barrier" As he said this the Barrier disappeared and Sam jumped up onto the roof where the man with long black hair was standing
"Hold on!" Sora called
"What?!" Sam spat, "Be glad I let you live, there is nothing else to say to you" As he said this, both him and Laguna jumped off the roof and behind the house
"Sam" Laguna called, "You bet him, what dose that mean"
"Nothing, in fact he done better then I thought" Sam replied
"Better?" Laguna asked bewildered
"I had to resort to using Tekido Youshiki as well as a Bikou Jubaku, and even then he lasted quite a while" Sam stated as he reached into his pocket and pulled out a cigarette and placed it in his mouth before cupping his left hand over it, suddenly smoke began to rise from the exposed end of the cigarette before it began to smoulder, "There has only ever been one other person I have needed to go that high for"
"You mean him don't you" Laguna stated seriously
"Yes, him" Sam replied
"Hey, how about that Cid guy, where are we going to find him?" Laguna asked changing the subject
"I believe he was back there" Sam replied, "Don't worry about him, I'm sure my mother will ask him to" Sam suddenly stopped as a defining cry sounded
"What was that?" Laguna asked
"More Heartless" Sam answered, "Come on, we better deal with it"
"You okay kid?" Cid asked as Sora re-entered the house
"Yeah, I'm fine" Sora replied
"He's my son" Rinoa stated, "I'm sorry"
"No, don't worry about it" Sora replied
"I hope he didn't do anything too bad" Rinoa said
"No" Sora answered
"Good" Rinoa said, "Oh" Rinoa turned to Cid, "Do you know any good mechanics"
"Yeah, you're looking at him" Cid replied
"Oh, good. So, could you repair my ship?"
"I can repair anything, just tell me where it is" Cid answered
"Okay, it's...uh" Rinoa mused for a few seconds, "Um...I can't remember"
"Well we'll just see" Cid sat down at the chair before the computer console; he began to type away at the keyboard, "The city and a one-hundred radius of the outskirts are connected by underground wires, sending signals out will tell us just what's out there" Cid stated. He typed away at the console, shaking his head or muttering a 'no' every few seconds until, "What's this? That aint been there before"
"Did you find it" Rinoa asked
"I found something made of Gummi blocks" Cid Answered, "I guess it's your ship, I'll get on it right away" Cid got up and walked towards the door before opening it, " Holy shit it's late" Cid exclaimed, "The sun will be setting in a couple of hours. I'll see what I can do, but even I cant get the job done in that short amount of time" After saying this Cid walked out of the house and closed the door behind him"
Several hours passed before Cid returned. The door opened slowly, the light of the house seeped through the doorway and into the twilight world on the outside. Cid walked inside the house and fell into a nearby chair. Also in the room were Rinoa and Leon, Rinoa was reading a book with a blue cover and the words 'The Sorceress' Knight' printed on the front in big, white font and in a style long since abandoned in most worlds, Leon was merely sitting at a table drinking a half empty glass of water
"Me and the other mechanics moved your ship into town, we still need to work on it but not tonight" Cid stated, "I need a drink, any of you want to come down to the Seventh Heaven?"
"No thanks" Rinoa replied, "I'm getting tired, I think I'll head to bed" As Rinoa said this she closed her book, got up and walked towards a door at the end of the room, she walked through the doorway and closed the door behind her
"How about you" Cid asked Leon, the only one other then himself in the room
"Alright" Leon replied as he finished off the water before standing up and following Cid out of the house. The outside world was dark only being lit up by the odd street light. A cool breeze brushed past the two as Leon closed the door while digging through his pocket and eventually pulling out a silver key, he locked the door and followed Cid as he walked down the street to the commercial side of town.
It wouldn't have been any longer then a ten minute walk before Cid and Leon arrived at the double story building with a large, lit up sign on it that read 'Seventh Heaven'. Quickly, Cid opened the door and walked inside soon followed by Leon, the walls of the bar were brown, at the end of the room was a counter with seats in front of it, most of which were occupied by men ad women drinking various alcoholic beverages. Cid and Leon both took a seat next to the bar counter
"The usual?" The barwoman asked with her back to them
"Yeah" Cid answered
"How about you Leon?"
"I'll just have the same as him" Leon answered
"Okay" the woman answered as she grabbed two glasses and put them under one of the many taps, she turned it on and the glass was filled with a light brown liquid. After both glasses were fill, the woman turned around and put the two glasses down in front of the two men, "Leon, I don't usually see you here"
"That's because I don't drink very often" Leon replied in a monotone as he looked at her abdominal area and the slight bump that stuck out
"So Tifa, how far along are you" Cid asked making slight conversation
"About four and a half months" Tifa replied rubbing the bump on her abdominal.
Leon rose his glass to his lips and allowed the brown liquid to slide down his throat (That could be taken out of context really easy) after a few seconds, Leon put the glass back onto the counter, "So where is he?"
"I think he's gone to help with the preparations for tomorrow" Tifa answered as she cleaned a glass
"Tomorrow?" Leon asked but remembered almost immediately, "It will be a year exactly tomorrow; clearly he'll want to help. But if it didn't happen those two might not have gotten engaged, it was in comforting each other in that time that they got together" Leon took another drink from his glass.
"Hey when the kid comes along maybe you could have Leon help out" Cid said as he drunk the liquor in one attempt, "Another round of the same!"
"What did you mean by that?" Tifa asked as she grabbed Cid's glass and filled it with the same brown liquid as before
"Leon's been hiding a secret from us haven't you Leon" Cid stated, "About his son"
"That's not his second glass, is it?" Leon whispered
"No, more like his fifth" Tifa replied. Leon looked up at the clock, his eyes widened slightly at what he saw. It had already been half an hour. Had he really been musing for that long?
"Hey, where are we meeting tomorrow?" Leon asked before finishing off his drink
"Want a refill?" Tifa asked
"Alright, the same thing" Leon replied. Tifa grabbed the glass and put it under the tap
"We're meeting at the lake" Tifa informed him as she handed back the glass
"Another round, this time something bitter!" Cid shouted, it was obvious that he was beginning to get intoxicated
"I've got just the thing" Tifa stated as she put his glass under a different tap as before and filled it up before handing it to Cid. When he received his glass again Cid lifted the glass to his mouth and took a sip from is before putting it back on the counter.
"Ah, that's better!" Cid stated
"Anyway Leon, did you tell Sora and the others?"
"No not yet" Leon replied, "I'll tell them in the morning"
"So how old is he?" Tifa asked as she returned to cleaning a glass
"Who?" Leon looked up
"Him. Your son" Tifa answered not looking up
"He would be Thirteen" Leon took another drink from his glass, "I thought he was dead, thought they were both dead though I should have known she was alive, Merlin probably would have told us if there was another Sorceress"
"She's the Sorceress?" Tifa asked, she stopped cleaning the glass temporarily
"Yeah, Sorceress Rinoa Heartily" Leon looked back down and finished his drink, "Give me the strongest drink you have"
"You sure?" Tifa questioned
"Yeah" Leon replied in a monotone
"Me too!" Cid added as he lifted his empty glass in the air
"Do you have the money to pay for this?" Tifa asked
"Ah, just add it to my tab!"
"Cid you haven't paid your tab in two years" Tifa answered
"Alright, alright!" Cid dug into his pocket and pulled out a few notes, "Two-thousand Munny!"
"One-Thousand should cover mine, right" Leon added a few notes to Cid's pile. Tifa took the money and handed two-hundred Munny back to Cid and one-hundred to Leon before taking the two glasses and putting them under a tap. When they were both filled, Tifa handed the glasses back to the two men
"That's more like it!" Cid shouted as he picked up his glass and clashed it with Leon's before both men lifted the glasses to there lips and allowed the liquor to slide down their throats
