The last of the Keyblade masters
Sora slowly became conscious, he slowly opened his eyes and waited for his vision to become clear before he sat up and let out a long yawn. Sora looked around his empty bedroom aboard the Highwind. All that was here was him, his bed, a coffee table and an alarm clock which currently read '4:15 am' Sora put his arms behind his head before letting out another yawn
"I'm yawning but I'm not tired, how am I going to get back to sleep?" Sora thought. "I'm thirsty" Sora pulled the blankets from his body before jumping out. Sora headed out the door and down the hall way to the ships kitchen. When he arrived at the kitchen, he opened a cupboard and grabbed the first cup he saw and ran it under the tap, filling it halfway with water. After he did, Sora turned the tap off and drunk the liquid quickly without removing his lips from the glass
"Why are you up? You're going to need your rest" Sam's voice sounded in Sora's head
"I can't sleep. What about you?" Sora asked
"I usually can't sleep for more then three or four hours a night." Sam stated, "Besides, I hate my dreams"
"Why?" Sora asked
"Because dreams are merely fantasies which well never happen. Anyway, my dreams are what most people call nightmares" Sam stated
"Hey Sam?" Sora asked, "Who was that kid?"
"I suppose you would find out sooner or later" Sam stated, "He has no name, he had no parents. However what he had was talent, he was a key bearer. The Keyblade masters little prodigy, and I was the filth at the bottom of the barrel." Sam stated with hatred
"It doesn't sound like the two of you got along very well" Sora stated
"No shit" Sam spat, "He is known only as 'the Paladin'. All the masters thought he could do no wrong. But I saw past his little disguise, I saw that he was nothing more then a spoilt little traitor"
"What do you mean?" Sora asked
"It's not important. All you need to know is that he is a Keyblade master, one of the last three"
"Three? I didn't know there were so few" Sora admitted
"Whatever, all you need to know is if you meet him, don't fight. Run. Only a Keyblade master can stand against him, and also you have to have a clear mind empty of emotion to fight him else he will use them against him. For instance someone full of rage will be engulfed in the flames of their own wrath or someone worried or afraid will be weighed down by there fears and concerns"
"Alright, thanks" Sora replied before he returned to his room
Sam's POV (First person)
There is so much more to him then I told him, should I have?
"No, it's not his concern, and how can he be trusted. I am the only one that you can be certain who won't betray you. Just as he betrayed all of you"
I was only ten years old when it happened, when the paladin betrayed us all. I remember it so perfectly. It was the day I got the scar on my eye. There was a Keyblade master meeting on a backwash world, we were certain that no one would find us there. Laguna and my mother had to wait out side with the Ragnarok; only masters were allowed in the castle. I remember all of the other masters awaiting master Aremus, the head of the master's council. There was something strange about the Paladin. He was warned about several different things on several different occasions and each time he would respond with something foolish like 'no, perhaps it is you who should remember your place' Master Aremus finally arrived. He had called us forward from the various worlds to find a way to deal with the Heartless threat
Unfortunately, the very enemy we were trying to find a way to destroy attacked us right in the middle of our meeting. While all the other masters went to battle, the paladin ran further into the castle. This confirmed what I was dreading but I had to make sure. I ran down the hallway to the end of the castle, finally I cornered him. When I accused him, he merely smirked and that smirk was all I needed to know what he had done, I saw everything he had done. He had sold us out, every last Keyblade master but why? The Paladin attacked me. That was the first time we fought but not the last. I don't even know how long we fought for but what I do know is the feeling of his duel Keyblades against my Outcast and the pain off one of them as it slashed the flesh of my face and nearly blinded me.
Right in the middle of the fight, I got a shock I never dreamed would happen. King Mickey walked right on in to our fight. The fight between the Keyblade prodigy of light and the freak of the darkness, and from there anyone would have made the same assumption that he did. He thought that I was the one who betrayed the Keyblade masters, he assumed that I told whoever was controlling the Heartless where we were meeting and that I was responsible for the deaths of all but three Keyblade masters. I, the Paladin and King Mickey were the only survivors. Even master Aremus was slain by the thousands of Darkside and over Heartless of equal size. Of course I don't blame him, if our fates had been reversed, if I were the king and he were the 'dark freak show' then of course I would have suspected him.
I tried desperately to defend myself from what must have seemed like the obvious truth. Unfortunately for me, The Paladin was allowed to escape. I knew I couldn't talk my way out of this one, I only had one way to get out of this, and that was the window behind me. I jumped through it quickly and shattered the glass around it. It was fortunate for me that the Ragnarok was taking off at the same time which allowed me to land on it.
Normal point of view
"The King never trusted me from then. And now, I'm alone" Sam thought
"Foolish boy, you will never be alone, I have, I am, and I always will be here, even if you don't want it to be so. That is your fate"
"I know, and that is why I will never need anyone else. Not my mother, not my farther, not Laguna, not the king, not Sora and certainly not any friends" Sam thought as he closed his eyes and returned to his meditation
