It was gone, but not for long.
How long does it take a heartless to regenerate? They re-entered a realm of pure darkness. Think logically it shouldn't take long for it to mend themselves, but after a hearty battled, there was always a quiet storm. The rain slowed to drizzles, and the shadows weren't motivated to come after them. She wouldn't put it past them though; they were advantageous creatures. With the pink canary on the floor, it would surely tempt them, but she wasn't alone; the bluebird towered over her.
"You need to get up. Heartless aren't charitable," the Battlefield of War dangled at her side; a purple aura encased it before vanishing. Reaching down, Aotori tugged her up. She looked diminished with a change of clothing. All the knight's glamor had fallen; now she was a vulnerable woman, "Now it's my turn. Are you alright?"
It was rhetorical, but a joke nonetheless. It was a first in a long time. How long she wouldn't know.
"What was that thing you collected from the first beast, the light?" She watched her face for expressions and reactions, "it came for it, and I'm sure more would."
It was a small thing; she tried to recall what it looked like, but its glow blew its silhouette out. What could happen to mere worlds if more were scattered? Would strong heartless rise from the black crypts just to siege it along with more hearts. With every day, there were more problems. Did Aotori have the heart to make the world problems hers?
"It's a good think you're not alone," even if she was rude at first. Guilty racked through her faster than the cold, "you could be trapped in there with them."
There looked and felt like a prison. It was so dark light couldn't escape. Light would surrender and fade within its grasp. It wasn't a suitable place for anyone or canaries. "You should be with more people: more power and protection in numbers. You should rest to. I doubt there is a safe place, but I think I can find a hospitable one."
