"I'm not the Master
he saw me to be.
I've failed them,
I couldn't save them.
It would be a cruel fate
having to wait;
no one deserves that.”
Another Side, Another Story
“No, they don’t need me
and it’s not that
I’m just no use
If you’re both
out there somewhere,
don’t worry about me.
“Familiar,” the single word whispered from her lips as she stood alone in the dense woods, “this place is familiar.”
Or maybe she saw it in a dream? If it were those dreams it was better to push them aside. She didn’t need a distraction now. Even with a distant feeling of nostalgia, the world felt off and out of balanced. It made her skin crawl; darkness was present, and yet there was light in the far distance. For the person she was looking for, she wasn’t sure if she should stalk the darkness or follow the light. He didn’t give her much to go on besides a fairy who dealt with darkness; he needed her for business, and she maybe able to drown her visions and nightmares for good. She tried to focus, to listen to her gut. There was nothing, a void, cluelessness. She was at lost.
With a sigh, she pressed on; her only company was the click of her shoes disturbing the eerie silence of the woods. As she walked aimlessly, she felt her body go into auto-pilot; her mind drifted to other places.Her steps became more sluggish; her legs felt heavier with each step, and with every passing second she felt dizzy, lightheaded.Seems like I've been walking for

How long have I been
here?Maybe I should

Something snapped and electrified her. Pain made her back arched before it raced up her spine piercing her head. Before she knew it everything went black.
S T A T I C
The Silent Forest
Faces rippled in and out of her mind. Only voices were consistent.
she just as sweet as could be
A laugh started so modestly, and hand pressed to humored lips trying to hold them back.
“Hey, what are you laughing at?”
It was harder to hold now with both of them staring at her confused and insulted, “I can’t help it. You two would make the weirdest brothers.”
She sang us purty songs
and made us smile
“…you and I have our,” the voice dragged out with a slur and hitch make the words indistinguishable, “I made us good luck charms.”
She gave them their charms; they were all identical sans different colors that suited them well, “Somewhere out there, there’s this tree with star-shaped fruit..”
Yes, somewhere out there. Knowing there were other worlds felt magical. Her heart was lighter then to the point of being overly sentimental, “You’ll always find your way back to each other. Technically I think you’re supposed to make them with seashells, but I did the best I could with what I had.”
They’ll appreciate it. Wouldn’t they? She was so hopeful then.
“Sometimes you are such a girl.”
Her nose wrinkled trying to decipher that. He had ways to rub them all the wrong way, and he knew well enough to do it clock worth, “Hey what do you mean ‘sometimes’?”
At bedtime, she told wonderful stories
About falling in love an’ the Prince she’d met.
An’ when we went to work
she gave us all
Power is born within the heart. When the time is right, you just need to look inside yourself, and you’ll find it there.
She had the power, and she had eyes of wonder. She smiled looking up towards the sky. Tomorrow will be a new day. Her head shifted to look at them, but the faces were blurred from the distance. Still she looked happy.
An unbreakable connection…
That was the thought she had. In her hand, she clenched a blue trinket shaped like a star.
She was so full of kindness
– why, she made better folk of all of us.
“%#@, you almost had him, Just try it again!” She cheered as he was recovering from another spar. He was the little brother she never had, and she’d always cheered him on until they all reached their dreams.
“Hey wait, you’re teaming up now?”
She smiled impishly in response. He can use a harder challenge, the brunette, and yet she watched over with enough confidence. She could easily take him on, but this spar was for growth, not pride. The youngest of them was anxious to do so. He didn’t take long to pick up the wooden keyblade before going at it again. A few more rounds wore him down, while the trio sat together.
“%#@. You see all those dents and nicks you got?”
“Each one of those is proof you’re learning,” she chipped in. They were in this together forever and always.
Her voice rang clear; it was definitely hers, but it was filled with sincerity, a heart, “From what you’ve said she must have been very loved.”
“@*$! how can you do that to him?”
“I’m on my own now, all right?”
“Listen to yourself…”
“What else is darkness but hate and rage?”
“The three of us can never be torn apart, all right? I'll always find way.”
“@*$! ... Put an end to me.”
“I'm asking you, as a friend... Just...put an end to me.”
...I might not make it back as soon as I thought.
Maybe...I should fade into the darkness here.
I couldn’t save them.
As if she was drowning, she sat up quick gasping for air. She felt a headache coming from the strain, trying to swim out of the depths of her unconscious. She coughed with ragged breath; she didn’t felt centered, but erratic, unstable. And while she tried to grasp reality and what happened, it all faded out of her grasp leaving her sweaty with her lungs desperate for air. Looking around, she noticed she was outside of the woods.
How did I get here?
She looked up confused at the cottage.
Where am I?
This world was going to be the end of her.
