(Mover part two)
Raziel-san’s past, but I do not care about that. I will gladly trust Raziel-san’s words, He fights for something that no one usually has to fight for. He fights for something that we all take for granted. In my eyes, it doesn’t matter what you're fighting for, because we all fight for something, it doesn’t need to be righteous. I would carelessly give up my life if it meant that Raziel-san could get what he wants. He never deserved what happened to him. In fact I would gladly do that for anyone of these chosen warriors.”
Alexiel was feeling embarrassed from the closeness that Vangix was near her, “Please...don’t get yourself involved…” She then struggled slightly, “I don’t want anyone else to get hurt, because of me!” She allowed a few tears to fall. “Please, I can’t allow you to get involved…” Alexiel although had a tough time, she got free of Vanigx’s grip and took a few steps forward. “Thank you, Vanigx, but this is my fight.”
Rocial then started laughing in a mocking way, “You? Foolish boy? One who claims to want to control darkness. You cannot protect Alexiel, you can’t protect anyone.” Rocial’s eyes started to glow red, “You who once served the darkness blindly, Your attempts at threats do not intimidate me.” Rocial sighing, “And You, dear sister, are hopeless...after all you did for him, you still wish to defend someone like him. With no form of gratitude.”
“It doesn’t matter to me, Rocial, I did it because that is who I am. I didn’t ask to be thanked, also, I did what I did not request to be thanked in any way shape or form. I won’t change that about me for anything.” Alexiel said.
Raizel's eyes shifted down to the ground at the mention of the evils he had committed. In all his long years he has done many things that he is not proud of. Things that would forever weigh in his mind. However, he will never fall victim to doing such things again.
"That is my sin and my sin alone." Raizel said lifting his head up and placing a hand on Alexial's shoulder. "My life is mine now. My past is just that in the past. Now leave!" Raizel said as he squeezed Alexial's shoulder.
Alexiel struggled a bit against Raziel-san’s strength, ‘He is a lot stronger than he gives himself credit for...’ She placed a hand on Raziel-san’s hand that was squeezing her shoulder.
“I am sorry, were you aiming for me?” Rocial laughed a little slightly, “Either your aim is off, or there is truly distrust you hold for my sister, although I cannot completely blame you. She gets annoying. However, sister, this just shows that what you do means nothing…and is completely pointless.”
Raizel let go of Alexiel’s shoulder and looked to Rocial. “Your sister is stronger than you.” Was all he said as he turned his back to both of them.
However before anything could begin Undine decided it was time to intervene. Granted they were not supposed to get involved, but these warriors needed to get on their way. This journey was going to be long and hard, and if the first step was not made soon then Noctis would have more time to get his warriors ready.
“That is enough! Darkness may exist in everyone, and even in ourselves but it is what we do with that darkness that is important. If you let it win then you are no better than Noctis, or this woman here. Now begone from this place daughter of Darkness. You are not welcome here, and if you want to push your luck We can eliminate you here and now!” Undine threatened Rocial who was playing yet another mind game. They wouldn’t allow anymore delays, and if this Darkness decided to stay then she would not live. She may be strong, but Undine was the guardian of the Light, and by all means more powerful.
Rocial looked slightly annoyed, “You are one to talk,” Rocial then walked away from Raziel, “Even you, Undine have darkness in your heart. For someone who opposes Noctis, you shouldn’t have any darkness...” Rocial grinned, “Of course, I am no fool...however allow me to put something to rest…” She pushed a few lone strands of hair out of her face, “You may be powerful, but you cannot destroy me.” Rocial then pointed over to Alexiel, “Only she has the power to end me, but I also have the power to end her, but that will be decided on the Day of the Prophecy.”
Rocial’s echo was starting to lose strength, “Ah, I guess my time is drawing to a close for now…” She then made a fist, “You all had the chance, so now you all will help me end Alexiel. So I will thank you. We will meet again, sister...count on it.” As her echo faded, there was a small smirk across her face.
“Raziel-san, I am sorry for my sister’s words…” Alexiel looked down slightly. “I also feel bad that my attempts to help you didn’t work either…”
As soon as Rocial left Raizel took his hand from Alexial's shoulder and calmed his mind. The thought of his past was not a subject he likes to remember.
"Your words were fine. Don't blame yourself for something that was out of your control. My experiences are not something you should have to try and fix. Concentrate on the future, not the past." Raizel said as he moved away from Alexial and the group.
As soon as that little nuisance was taken care of Undine looked at the warriors. They needed to get everything in order before the warriors left. The first order of business was welcoming the warrior that ‘he’ had chosen.
“So you were chosen by ‘him’. So be it, warrior chosen by the world. You have been chosen, and so shall you be able to fight the Darkness alongside the warriors of Light. The road ahead will be one filled with Danger. You must learn to work as a team in order to be able to quell the Darkness and send it back to where it belongs.” Undine said as they raised their hand to the sky, opening a portal that would lead them to their first world.
“May the light guide you on your path.” Undine said not allowing the warrior to waste yet another minute. They needed to get going, and they needed to soon. The warriors of Darkness have long been on the move, and any more delay would lead them to getting what they wanted.
