The journey begins
"Sam?" Sora questioned astonished
"The one and only" Sam turned around completely to face Sora as he continued to smirk, "Come to save the day"
"You seem more cheerful then yesterday" Sora stated
The Quadra claw roared as it began to approach the new Key bearer, "Shut up!" Sam slashed the Quadra claw over its face, the heartless let out a yelp and jumped back, "This guy isn't that tough" Sam stated turning back to Sora, "If we fight him together, we'll beat him" Sam rose his Keyblade, Outcast.
"Hah" Sam turned around only to be meet by a hand gripping his head and throwing him through the air
"You won't get away" Riku stated as he summoned way of the dawn
"That's right" Kairi added as she called her own Keyblade Destiny place
"Wak!" Donald screeched as he ran in front of Sam and outstretched his arms
"Stop Riku, he's on our side!" Sora shouted
"Are you sure about that?" Riku asked, "Just yesterday he tried to kill you"
"I know, but he didn't. And I think he's the one who's supposed to teach me" Both Sora and Riku looked over at Sam who had gotten back onto his feet, he rubbed the back of his head
"Bastard, what did you do that for?" Sam asked
"Watch out" Goofy shouted. The Quadra claw roared as it jumped forward and slashed its claws at the three Key bearers. At the same time Sora, Sam and Riku parried the Quadra claw and pushed it back. Donald raised his staff into the air, when he did a lightning bolt came down and struck the Quadra claw on its head, the Heartless let out a shriek before slamming its feet to the ground and creating a shockwave. Sora jumped and evaded the wave; Sora continued to fly through the air towards the Quadra claw, as he closed in Sora vertically slashed the Quadra claw's head. The Heartless growled as it readied another ball of darkness in its mouth however its attention was suddenly drawn away as Kairi attacked its legs. The Quadra claw roared as it slammed its legs on the ground, Kairi evaded the leg however was hit by the shockwave and sent through the air and to the ground
"Kairi!" Sora yelled as he ran towards her, as he reached Kairi he knelt beside her
"I'm fine" Kairi said as she began to get up. Suddenly the Quadra Claw roared, Sora turned his head to face it, its foot was only maybe a few meters away from them
"Move it!" Sam shouted as he jumped in front of the incoming foot and parried it with Outcast and pushed the Quadra claw back. Suddenly, the Heartless lunged its head at the three, "Run!" The three pushed themselves away from the Quadra claw as fast as there feet would allow, "Ahh Shit! Shit! Shit!!" The Quadra claw grabbed Sam in its jaw and lifted him up thirty feet into the air.
"Sam!" Sora called out. The Heartless thrashed Sam around furiously, Sora heard Sam shout, "Knock it off! I'm not a bloody chow toy!"
"I'll save him" Donald stated as he launched a blizzard spell at the Quadra claw, it directly hit it between the eyes. Several thunder spells followed after this as well as a fire ball, they all hit the exact same place of the Heartless. After these spells it looked like the Heartless had gotten fed up and just threw Sam away, Sam lunged through the air for several seconds before flying through a store window, spraying glass all around. Sora winced before everyone approached the window
"You okay?" Sora asked
"Just peachy" Sam responded before giving them a thumb up and jumping out the broken window only to trip over his own feet and land on his knees. Shortly after, Sam's mouth opened and he vomited chunky mucus
"Are you sure you're okay?" Sora asked not convinced
"I'm fine, now come on bastards let's get 'em" Sam raised Outcast before charging only to slip on his vomit and fall on his back, "Ow"
"Did he just nickname us 'bastards'?" Riku whispered to Sora
"I think so" Sora replied
"Do ya suppose someone oughta protect him until he can fight again?" Goofy suggested
"I'll try and get his head straight" Riku said, "You four stop that"
"Got it" Sora said as he, Donald, Goofy and Kairi ran towards the Heartless who was roaring at them.
Sora jumped at the Quadra claw who slammed its foot down, Sora jumped onto it. From there Sora jumped between its two right legs, slowly making his way up. Eventually Sora made his way up to the Heartless' back; he began to slash away at the Heartless in no particular pattern. The Heartless roared as it rose onto its two back legs making Sora fall off. Sora spun around in mid air which allowed him to land on his feet.
Goofy began to spin around, sticking The Quadra claw several times, the Heartless' only response was to slam its foot into Goofy, sending him flying away.
"Cure!" Donald shouted, that moment Goofy was covered in a green aura for a few seconds, when it cleared Goofy jumped up onto his feet. The Quadra claw roared and brought its head down at Sora, he jumped up and evaded it; this gave Sora a clear shot. As Sora began to fall he slashed the Quadra claw's head before it could react. The Quadra claw let out one final cry as it fell to the ground, before it hit, the Heartless dematerialized releasing a heart that floated up high into the sky and out of view.
Sora dismissed the Kingdom Key and Kairi did the same for Destiny place
"That wasn't too difficult. Was it?" Sora smiled, "Oh right, Sam" Sora ran back to Riku
"Hey, I think he damaged his head" Riku stated as Sora approached them
"What makes you say that?" Sora asked
"Just listen to him" Riku pulled Sam up and he began singing with an idiotic, ideal expression on his face
I'm a little teapot short and stout
Here is my handle, here is my spout
When I get all steamed up hear me shout
Tip me over and pour me out
"You're right" Kairi said
"When I was a kid someone told me that when this happens you should hit them again" Sora summoned the Kingdom Key, turned it around and smacked the handle against Sam's head. Sam's body went limp
"That didn't help, it just knocked him out" Riku stated
"Who told you that" Kairi asked Sora
"I can't remember, I think it was one of my mum's boyfriends"
"Whatever, lets just take him back to Merlin's house. He can rest there" Riku stated as he lifted Sam onto his back
The four travelled back to the house. Riku placed Sam' unconscious body on Merlin's bed
"I say, is he going to be alright" Merlin asked
"He'll be alright" Rinoa replied, "He's taken bigger blows to the head then that"
"Where is it?" Leon thought out loud as went through various pieces of paper and books on Merlin's desk
"What are you looking for?" Merlin asked
"The letter from the king, the Heartless must have taken it" Leon replied
"So they'll know what we're looking for" Riku assumed
"It would appear so" Merlin stated, "Enough about that, that boy will need a change of cloths, those ones he's wearing are damaged beyond repair. Kairi, if you don't mind"
Merlin was right; Sam's cloths were in taters. Suddenly Kairi let out a short scream, Sora looked over to her. Kairi was holding Sam's torn shirt in one hand where as her other hand was over her mouth. Sora followed Kairi's eyes down to Sam's back which was covered completely by an enormous burn. Sora had little time to think about it as someone knocked on the door. Merlin quickly opened it; on the other side was the old woman whom they had saved earlier that day from the Quadra claw holding a straw basket
"Good day" The woman began, "I was told that the young people who saved me were here"
"Why, yes they are" Merlin replied
"I wanted to thank them properly, so would you give them this" She handed the basket to Merlin, "Just tell them it was from Quistis Trepe"
"Sam, you're conscious?" Kairi stated
"Obviously" Sam got off the bed and summoned Outcast, "Sora pay attention" Sam said as he approached the old woman
"Excuse me but what do you" Sam stabbed the woman with Outcast
"Sam, what are you!" Sora shouted
"Hold on, look" Leon said as he stopped Sora. Sam twisted the Outcast in a ninety degree angle before pulling it out. The wound was made of light which slowly consumed Quistis' whole body. When the light cleared rather then the old woman there was a beautiful, blonde, young woman.
"What am I doing...?" Quistis began as she looked up, "Squall?!"
"Quistis, it's good to see you" Leon said
"Wow, you must have really missed me" Quistis laughed
"Quistis when did you get here?"
"Cid right" Quistis sad as she turned around
"Yeah" Cid replied as he walked towards her, "Anyway, I finished all the work on the ships, we should leave as soon as possible if that Maleficent knows what we're after. Can you hold up the fort while we're gone old man?"
"Of course I can" Merlin replied almost offended, "This old wizard still has some tricks up his sleeve"
"Good" Cid replied, "Cause we gatta leave immediately"
AN: And so that ends Radiant Garden for now. It was a pretty short chapter and the next one is the same. Please review.
