Chapter 121: Welcome to Spira… Population, Rhapsody Clan…

That night…

At the Chambers…

Paige: *Looking at her Kids* You guys, ready?

Annie: Not really. But this is a duty. We have to do it. This is our first run of being a hero. or being heroes.

Daria: Yeah. I Don’t think that we’re gonna make it through that portal.

Clint: Why do you say that?

Daria: *A bit nervous about the Portal and having to go through it* It looks rather dark. Spooky. Are we even sure that it is Spira inside that portal. What if it’s something else?

Theodore: Something else as in what? Just an illusion. How is that even possible? This portal must lead somewhere… shouldn’t it?

Annie: What do you think created this portal?

Clint: A Power source. It’s coming from somewhere in this room.

Serena: There is no power source. It’s coming from nowhere. It’s here.

Raven: Will we be back?

Dinah: I am sure that we will.

Amy: *feeling a pulling sensation* Are you guys feeling something?

Susie: No… what?

Christina:  A Pulling sensation. I feel it.

Spencer: It’s happening.

Alvin: Okay everyone… Hold hands. Don’t let go… no matter what happens.

Pearl: Will the others be okay while we’re gone?

Arnold: They should be… we all made arrangements. I happened to inform King John and Aunt Charlene. And some of our allies. They swore to keep the details under wraps. But the rest of the kids will be peachy. It’s good. They’re guaranteed safe.

Jack: Good.

Dinah: I told Shingo about the issue and he’s not too open to it and wishes that it didn’t have to happen. But is allowing this to happen as it’s to return the solid that was done for us 14 years ago.

It was then that the portal pulled them in and sucked them up. It pulled them all in and within seconds they were put on the fast track to where the portal was said to take them. To Spira. Hold on to your seats Rhapsody clan… This is gonna be a journey that will never be forgotten…

((Throughout the Adventure… The Narration will be done by Serena, Raven, their Cousins, Uncles Alvin and Jack and Aunt Dinah.))

The fighters all hit the street and grab a shot at the scene as they look up to see that things were by far different…

Narrative: *As Serena* We hit the streets of a strange place. We didn’t know what was going on as we barely fell through the portal and fell down. descending to our possible end. We had a lot of thoughts come over us as we fell. Would we make it… Were we gonna survive? Were we gonna reach the bottom of the fall and how far did it have left to go? My Aunts and Cousins were all dazed and confused. and so was i. We took a look around as we stood and saw tall massive buildings. Huge buildings. It didn’t take us long to come to terms that we were no longer in our reality. This was not Metropolis. Not the City that we knew. But it was something else…

Annie: *Looking around* Where are we?

Daria: Beats me. I don’t know and i don’t think it’d matter. Because the way that these buildings look… I don’t think that we’re gonna be seeing home for a very long time. I think that we’re in a trippy reality.

Dinah: You girls shouldn’t think that. This place is weird… but if we were smart… taking a look around and seeing what’s going on here would be something we should do.

Paige: Let’s look around. We’ll find someone here. We have to. Wherever here is. The portal gave us a big descent from where we were before we went through the portal… down.

Pearl: But where are we? Are we even in Spira?

Alvin: There is no telling where we are. We could be anywhere.

Zoey: *Seeing someone close-by* There’s someone coming. Maybe they could tell us where we are.

Luna: I’ll go ask. Zoey… You’re my responsibility I have to protect you as best i can. This isn’t Metropolis anymore… you should stay by my side. Come on. *Walking over with Zoey towards the teen close-by*

Luna walked over to the teen and tried to get the guy’s attention. Hoping that some answers would be found. Luckily the teen caught sight of her and Zoey and stopped to face them…

Teen: Heya, Ladies. What’s up?

Luna: Not sure. We’re lost. Where are we?

Teen: You’re in Zanarkand.

Zoey: *Gasps* Zanarkand? What’s that?

Teen: It’s a Metropolis like City. There’s a Blitzball arena close-by. I’m on my way there now…

Luna: You are? how come?

Teen: I’m a Blitzball player. The star player of the Zanarkand Abes.

Dinah: *Gasps* Whoa! Really?

Serena: A Sports team? *Grins* Wow… That’s pretty cool.

Teen: I know. Where were you girls heading?

Serena: Not sure. We don’t even know our way around to make any kind of move. We’re afraid to go anywhere for we’ll get lost.

Teen: Geez… You guys really are lost, aren’t you?

“Voiceover (Zanar): I was in a coffee shop, running away from home when I heard the news. Our hero, Jecht, gone. Vanished into thin air! My dad must have been his biggest fan. I knew how sad he’d be. Heck, we all were that day. 
“Zanar,” I says to myself, “What are you thinking?” I went running straight back home. We sat up talking ’bout Jecht all night. My dad and I never talked so much. 
Whoa… Didn’t mean to reminisce, folks. Anyway… Ten years later, the Jecht Memorial Cup tournament is today! The two teams that have won through to the finals are…of course, the Abes from A-East, and the Duggles from C-South. 
I know there’s a lot of people out there today to see the star of the Abes! In just one year, he’s become the team’s number one player! He’s Jecht’s blood, and the new hope of blitzball! What kind of super play will he show us today? Will we see his father’s legendary shot? I don’t think I’m the only one excited here, folks!”

Zoey: Who are you?

Luna: yeah… we didn’t catch your name.

Teen: I don’t think you even asked for that… but the name’s Tidus.

Zoey: Nice to meet you. My name’s Zoey.

Luna: I’m Luna.

“Serena”

“Raven”

“Sapphire”

“Amy”

“Susie”

“Christina”

“Penny”

“Spencer”

“Annie”

“Daria”

“Clint”

“Theodore”

“Blossom”

Paul: I’m Paul.

Crystal: I’m Crystal.

Sora: Sora.

Carly: Carly.

After they all introduced themselves…

Tidus: Are you guys going to see the game too?

Alvin: Can’t. No money. No tickets.

Tidus: What about sneaking in? The place will be packed and swarming with people that no one would be the wiser.

Paige: *Stares*

Raven: Good luck tonight in the game.

Tidus: No problem… Oh, if I score a goal… I’ll do this! (raises arms and spinning them slightly) That will mean it was for you, okay?

Raven: Okay. *Blushes*

It was only a minute later when Tidus had to jet fast over to the Stadium and get ready to play in the Blitzball game… They all followed and snuck in seeing as to where they could get a good seat. They were there in the strange Metropolis and as it was…Blitzball… Whatever it was… Happened to be the only means for entertainment thus far… That’s all there was and Given that Dinah was a sports crazed woman and Serena was into seeing a game. Something new. It won them all over and decided to go and see it. It would be something to possibly take their minds off of the fact that they had fallen out from a portal that brought them to where they were now. The fighters and parents went inside and grabbed a seat. They knew that this would be one of the few and only times… if any that they’d have the honor of seeing a sports game played while they were here to take care of what it was that they were summoned to Spira to do…

Inside the Stadium’s center there was a Sphere that was filled water. and inside it was what looked almost like a football field. One side was the goal for the opposing team… and the other… was the goal for the home team… The Zanarkand Abes. Tidus was inside the sphere and laying back. Letting the moment come where the Sphere would rise up into view and the game to start…

Tidus: *Laying back and with his head tilted back; Breathing and anticipating for the event to start*

A Second later…

The game was going to start. The teams were rolling in the sphere and set to play. It was only minutes… maybe seconds later when the game had ignition and began… Although while they played… initiated their match…

On the high beams way up on top of one of the tallest buildings… A man with a Large Katana sword and wearing a red trench like coat stood overlooking the city and spotting the ocean. Something was rising from the ocean… It was a huge beast by the way the bulge was forming up and rising… growing in height. Although the beast remained in a big Water Bubble. A monstrous bubble of water.

Of course back down in the city… Down within the Stadium… the Blitzball game match was still swinging… Pulsing with intensity in its wake…

But back outside on the streets of the city… The man in the red stylish coat walked the paths leading mysteriously to the Stadium. He was heading for the stadium for a reason unknown…

The people were running off screaming as the ball of water rose up and the beast was growing more with power. The force it had pushed a couple of the buildings down or tried to knock the buildings down… But the Buildings only were at a slant… Ready to topple.

Back inside the Stadium. The game was going on still. Tidus was scoring a goal and through out the game… he threw passes and one of the shots sent one of the Opposing teams players through the sphere wall and into the crowd.

Within the Bleachers…

Dinah: *Watching the game* Whoa! That shot was tough. That guy went flying.

Serena: Tell me again… Excellent toss. That guy… Tidus… He’s got one heck of an arm.

Alvin: It’s pretty thrilling to know that this kind of game exists. I say that we should have it in Metropolis. Don’t you?

Avery: I agree. I think that we should too… But we’ll need a sphere and that’s gonna take alot of money. a good couple hundred thousand or more to get one built and made.

Clint: *Watching the game and enjoying the intensity coming from the game itself*

Sapphire and Raven didn’t say anything. They could only watch with Awe…

Paige, Pearl, Annie, Daria and the rest were cheering like crazy. They were cheering for the Zanarkand Abes… Ironic since they were foreign to Spira. Knew nothing about Spira. Didn’t even know where to go… What to do. They were truly lost…

But Tidus was about to make his famous shot when he managed to look out and see a huge wall of water and saw as it shot water shots and objects out into the city…

Tidus: *Gasps*

The attack caused an explosion and the power of the blast radiated with a heavy cloud of Dust and smoke. busting into the city. Destroying high beams and breaking statues… destroying whatever possible. enveloping a large sector of the city with devastation. Which was the same area as the Stadium. The Stadium took a rather hefty hit as well as the buildings that happened to surround it…

The Blast sent Tidus up to one of the exposed Stone beams and he held on. But it was just a minute later…that the beam broke and blew off. Tidus fell down to the ground below…

Outside the Stadium people made a run for it and started to run for cover… Started to run in terror away from the devastation. Anywhere that they could. Tidus was down and barely coming to…

Spencer: *Running over to Tidus* Hey… What’s going on?

Tidus: *Slowly getting up and shaking his head* I don’t know. I wish i knew. But… i don’t.

Zoey: *Concerned* You okay?

Tidus: Yeah. I’m okay. I guess.

Blossom: Where did that attack come from? It just came out of nowhere.

Paige: is this city being attacked?

Dinah: That is a rather pointless question to ask… look around you… there is debris all over here… I would think that this City is under attack. You want to know why? It’s because it’d by kinda stupid for the city to attack itself. Unless it was run by people who are morally brain-dead and wouldn’t know who they were supposed to attack.

Pearl: How very perceptive of you.

Curtis: I don’t know what’s going on here… but whatever it is… Can we please just get to the bottom of it?

Arnold: Stop your impatient mood swing. We’re gonna get to it…

Tidus: *Sighs* Let’s go and check it out…

Serena: *Looking at her sisters and motions to move out* Come on guys… Let’s go and investigate…

Sapphire: Right. I’ll lead. Let’s keep a tight form. We don’t want to get ourselves lost. That’s the last thing that we’d all want.

Raven: No kidding.

Zoey: Blossom and i’ll come too… we gotta get to the bottom of what is happening.

They were on their way to search for answers when…

Tidus caught sight of a figure in a red coat. He recognized the man as someone close to his father… How he knew of who the guy was and what he was… confused the girls. Confused them all.

Tidus: Auron! What are you doing here?

Auron: I was waiting for you. (Walks away) 

Tidus: What are you talking about?

Paul: *Looking to Crystal* Who is that guy?

Crystal: No clue. But whoever he is… he happens to know Tidus. And Tidus happens to know him.

Sora: *Reading the man’s mind* The guy is Auron. A fallen warrior Monk. Happens to know Tidus through his father. Someone named Jecht.

Carly: That’s who he is?

Paul: I guess.

Annie: He seems to know where he’s going. More than we do… Maybe we should follow him and see where we end up. It’s better than standing and guessing.

Daria: I second that.

Amy: Let’s get out of here.

The fighters all made off with heading after where the mysterious man was going and wound up on the main road. There were no cars… so there was no risk of being on the streets. There were however a mass of people on the road running for cover. getting to where it was safe… if there was a safe spot to go to. Tidus looked around and looked lost and truly in misunderstanding. Somehow before he could turn to look… the time froze… the people froze and he saw everything paused. He saw even the new people… frozen…

Tidus: Huh?

Mysteriously… a small kid stood behind him and managed to grab his attention. The Kid was wearing a purple hoodie and you could barely make out his face…

Creepy Kid: It begins.

Tidus: Wha?

Creepy Kid: Don’t cry.

The kid vanishes and the time resumes. Chaos presses on…

Tidus: What the…?

Penny: *Looking to see the people running the other direction but running aimlessly* Where’s everybody going?

Jack: They’re running off somewhere. But… *Looking to see the city under siege and under attack* Where exactly can they really go?

Paige: Anywhere… there must be someplace safe for them to head off to.

Annie: *Looking to see where the guy went* Where do you suppose that the mysterious guy went?

Luna: *Looking up ahead* Zoey… Don’t go wandering. you could get lost in this city real easily.

Zoey: I’ll be careful…

Within seconds…

Tidus: *Suddenly spotting Auron up ahead close by and starts to head over to catch up with him) Hey, wait! *Catches up to him* Hey, not this way!

Auron: Look!

The fighters then looked up to see what the guy named Auron was seeing. Which was after they had all caught up to him and Tidus.

Raven: *Looking up and seeing a big massive ball* …. *Freaking out* W-w-w-w-w-w-what is that?

Blossom: *Screaming in terror* AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH!!!

Zoey: What is that? Mom, what is that? Is that thing… the threat of this world?

Luna: I-i-i-i-i don’t know.

Serena: *To the man in red* Hey… You, Katana wielder!

Auron: What?

Serena: What is that big ball in the sky? What’s in there?

Auron: It’s an Entity known as Sin. We all called it Sin.

Susie: Sin?

Spencer: Sin. A source that roots all misdeeds. All the wrong that is done by the human race. big or small.

But before they could stop to figure out what they were to do about the creature now identified as Sin…

A creature came popping out of a building wagging its tentacles around. It wasn’t but a brief second or so when…

Auron: *To the fighters* Look out…

they were then surrounded with creatures. Little creatures that had come from the larger creature wagging its tentacles…

Auron: These are Sin Scales. That creature in the building is a Sin Spawn. creatures that get left in Sin’s wake.

The Sin Scales suddenly opened and revealed flickering wings…

Auron Suddenly holds out a Sword towards Tidus…

Auron: Take it.

Tidus: *Grabbing the sword and barely able to lift… falling back to the ground before getting back up again* Wha- Huh…

Auron: A gift. From Jecht.

Tidus: My old man?

Auron: I hope you know how to use it.

Zoey: What about us? What’ll we do?

Auron: Depends. Can you girls and men… fight?

Sapphire: We can.

Raven: that’s for sure.

Serena: *Grins*

Dinah: Girls… If you want to aid in this fight… It’s okay… You gotta get a handle on this sooner or later…

Sapphire: Girls… Let’s do it. Hands in…

A second later…

Sapphire: Miss Thunder! *With her hand in the middle*

Raven: Thunderic Wonder! *With her hand in the middle*

Serena: Thunder Star! *With her hand in the middle*

Sapphire: *With Raven and Serena; Posing for transformation* … *Transforming* Rhapsody Thunderic Force Z!… Electrify!

Within seconds the appearances changed and replaced the attire with Thunderic charged suits. The Boots were with Thundering energy… Each step was with Thunderic power. The Gloves were with Thunder and lightning. Their weapons were the Thunder Solar Discs. The Jet propelled Lightning Shooter. The Seismic Thunder Boomerangs.

Sapphire, Raven and Serena: *Posing* Rhapsody Thunderic Force Z!

Miss Thunder: Want assistance?

Thunderic Wonder: Count on us.

Thunder Star: The Rhapsody Thunderic Force Z! We’ll electrify the problem and send it back with an Electro-shock therapy. Evil… Meets it’s match. With us.

Tidus: *Amazed* Awe…some!

The first set of creature outbreak…

Auron: Attack these if you must… But cut through. these ones don’t matter.

Within seconds…

Miss Thunder: Rhapsody Thunderic Force Z! FIRE! *Launching her weapon* Thundering Solar SCREAMERS!

Thunderic Wonder: *Launching her weapon* Lightning Rapid STORM!

Thunder star: *Launching her weapon* Seismic Thunder Howler!

Auron: Don’t waste time cutting through all of them… Cut through the ones that matter most and make a run for it.

Miss Thunder: *Firing at the sin scales*

Tidus: *Slashing the sword at the Sin Scales* Hiya!

As they cut through…

Dinah: *Watching her Daughters battle the sin scales and cutting through* That’s the way to work it girls.

Paige: Looks like your girls are a natural. A real down right natural. You should be proud of yourself about that. Really.

Pearl: *Looking at the scales* How many of these are there?

Alvin: You don’t want to know. Trust them… you don’t want to know.

When they caught up to the Sin Spawn…

Tidus: *Growls* Get out of my Town!

Auron: Ha! Some Can’t wait to die!

Miss Thunder: *Launching her weapon* Thundering Solar SCREAMERS!

Thunderic Wonder: *Launching her weapon* Lightning Rapid STORM!

Thunder Star: *Launching her weapon* Seismic Thunder Howler!

Zoey: *Looking at her mother* Mom, I think that i should help. I might have felt like a freak… but i don’t think that there is room to be thinking of myself to be a freak. I am not a freak. I am just unique. I gotta help them.

Luna: Okay… Please be careful though. Your first battle is this one here… You never battled before. and i don’t want to see you getting hurt. Just be careful. *Hugging Zoey* Make me proud. Good luck, Sweetie.

Zoey: *Nods*

A second later…

Zoey: *Posing and Chanting* Zoey Prism Power… Make-up! *Glowing and covered by a white light and spinning; The pants turning into a skirt* … *With a sparkle of light and stars the hair turning pink with two Pointed meatball buns on the sides* … *The shoes changing into high heels Including high risen stockings with the crescent moon on them and her hands formed gloves on them; Then with a shining flash two Earrings appeared upon her ears with a weapon upholstered to her side; A Crescent moon Wand* …

As soon as she was fully transformed…

Sailor Zoey: *Jumping up and Leaping forward towards the creatures* Hiya! *Launching an attack at the Sin Scales* Moon hearts Cosmic Blast!

Miss Thunder: *Looking to see Zoey* Zoey? What… Is that you?

Sailor Zoey: Yeah. It is. But now it’s Sailor Zoey.

Thunderic Wonder: Wow! You look really good. Welcome to the fight. Come and let’s trash this Sin Spawn with Tidus and Auron.

Thunder Star: Let’s do it.

Blossom: I’ll Join in the fight too… *Drawing some Electricity and Firing it at the Sin Scales*

Auron: *Producing an overdrive* Dragon Fang!

The attack drove out the Sin Scales and damaged the Sin Spawn. taking out two of the tentacles and opening the path for an all out attack on the Sin Spawn…

Miss Thunder: *Launching her weapon* Thundering Solar SCREAMERS!

Thunderic Wonder: *Launching her weapon* Lightning Rapid STORM!

Thunder Star: *Launching her weapon* Seismic Thunder Howler!

Tidus: *Producing an overdrive* Spiral Cut!

4 more Tentacles went away.

Auron: *Attack the Sin Spawn*

Sailor Zoey: *Firing at the Sin Spawn*

Tidus: *Slicing at the Sin Spawn* Ha!

with the attacks… it cut out the Tentacles and brought it to where there was only one left. It took a direct shot from Blossom to knock it out and with that final blow… the Sin Spawn was defeated. It was over… Or was it?

The Fighters all run on ahead and make way past the sin Spawn and wind up in front of the building with the Viewscreen showing someone Tidus knew. It was his father.

Tidus: *Scoffs at the screen* What’re you laughing at, old man? *To Auron* Auron, Let’s get out of here.

Auron: We’re Expected.

Blossom: Expected? *Confused* Expected… by who?

Sailor Zoey: You mean that there’s more of these things for us to face?

Tidus: Huh?

Auron: *Running ahead again*

Thunder Star: *Looking at her sisters* Is it me… or is he desperate for winning some kind of death wish?

Thunderic Wonder: I don’t know. But i am guessing that he knows what to do about these Sin Spawns. What to do to trim them off.

Thunder Star: He should… only if he’s brought them here. Unless he spends all his spare time training and practicing on fending them off.

Miss Thunder: That’s a likely suspicion. Let’s go.

They run ahead and follow Auron to where the next cluster of Sin Scales were.

it was only seconds later when they were surrounded by Scales again…

Auron: Hmph. This could be bad.

Blossom: And i would hope that this isn’t where we meet our makers.

Miss Thunder: *Launching her weapon* Thundering Solar SCREAMERS!

Thunderic Wonder: *Launching her weapon* Lightning Rapid STORM!

Thunder Star: *Launching her weapon* Seismic Thunder Howler!

After the first round of strikes and attempts at defeating the sin Scales…

Auron: That–knock it down! *Pointing at the strange contraption that looked quite like a set of drums that made out to blow up if damaged or dropped from a spot high enough*

Tidus: What?

Miss Thunder: What are you trying to do? Is this some sort of game?

Auron: Trust me. You’ll see.

Thunder Star: *Shaking her head* This is like playing a game of cat and mouse.

Sailor Zoey: Here Kitty kitty kitty! *Laughs*

Thunder Star: *Not impressed* Ha ha! Very funny. Very…. funny.

Blossom: I’ll get the tanker contraption. you guys can deal on the scales. Two birds… one stone.

Auron: *Nods* Very well. Hit it right at the center. It’s weak spot. knock it down.

Sailor Zoey: And i will help. Blossom… Let’s do it.

Blossom: Right.

The rest of the fighters were close by and watching the scene.

It was only mere strikes later when the tanker fell down into the bottom and blew up… Causing an explosion and starting the building close to them to start crashing down.

Auron: *Looking at the girls and Tidus* Don’t hesitate. Run. Go. Get going… Hurry!

Luna: *Running over and Grabbing her daughter and carrying her* Come on. Hold on Zoey… I’ve got you.

Curtis: *Carrying Blossom suddenly and Running* Make way…

Paige: *With her sisters, Cousins Alvin, Arnold and Avery* Everybody RUN!!!!

Paul: *with his sisters and cousins; Making a mad dash ahead with them all by his side* This remind me of running on track. Yikes!

The fighters all make a run for it and tried to get far. But the least that they knew… There was a piece of ground missing and on the other side of the gaping hole…  The Overpass was being pulled up into the sky. There was a huge light in the sky. It was the creature and it was pulling the overpass in… little by little. The Fighters had to risk it as they had to get across. They all Leaped up and thought to have made it across. But sadly missed and were all hanging on to the edge.

Raven: *Looking up while trying to hang on* Oh god this is high… Really high. Would someone mind getting us up from this? Somebody!

Serena: This is so not my idea of funny. I think that i’d like this ride to be done now…

Zoey: *Looking down and seeing how high they were* … *Turning white* Mom… Get me down… get me out of this…

Alvin: This is not gonna be good.

Sapphire: No kidding. No kidding, Uncle Alvin. This is one ride that i don’t think we would like to remember.

The massive creature known as sin was continuing to suck things up like the force of a black hole…

Tidus: Auron! Auron!

Auron: *Looking up* You’re sure about this?

Tidus gets hoisted up and held onto…

Auron: This is it… Right here. This is your story. It all begins here. Now.

Serena: *Getting pulled into the light* Ahhhh!

Raven: Help! Let me go… I don’t want to go… I’m too young to go. I’m only 14 and i haven’t done anything yet in my life… I don’t want to die.

Annie: This is it… Isn’t it?

Paige: Don’t worry. We’re all going in. Just what ever you do… Don’t let go. You hold on tight to each other. Don’t let go for anything.

Daria: Don’t worry. we won’t. We’re not breaking for anything.

They get pulled into the light…

All: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!

The scene goes white… where they were to end up… no one knew…

“Hey!” … “HEY!”

Tidus: *Caught in a dream and Seeing Zanarkand but not the real Zanarkand* My… old man?

Tidus swims down to see Jecht but only to see that it’s him as a young kid… The fighters and the parents all dreamt and saw Metropolis… But also saw themselves as young kids. all 7 years old as they got closer to the center of metropolis. It was in a dream so they were rather floaty…

Narrative: *As Dinah* We happened to think about a multitude of things. Like what we got ourselves into… Or where Sin played any part in Metropolis… how he could have known about Metropolis. I kinda thought at that time of us being tricked. or shown visions that would rather psych us out. It might have worked as we were frozen in shock by the sight. Not knowing it to be but an illusion. We started having thoughts like where we really were and if we were gonna be able to go back to our home. In Metropolis. We started to feel dizzy… then sleepy. I suppose we had a dream at that moment. A dream of being misunderstood. We wanted someone…anyone to understand us. Just so we didn’t have to feel out of place.

Baaj temple…

The fighters were out cold and barely starting to come to. However… they were separated. The young fighters and the new generation were all on the two slabs on the far side of the location of the temple. The temple was more like a ruin. Sapphire was the first to get up… But she was in more of a daze and feeling practically out of it a bit. However as for their parents… they were up ahead where there was more ground and more of a dry spot…

Annie: *Getting up and groaning* Where are we?

Daria: Where are we?! Annie, I think that you fail to notice that there is no clue to where we’re at. This is an unknown section… But…

Raven:*Getting up with her sisters Sapphire and Serena* Why do i get the feeling that we’re not in Metropolis anymore?

Serena: No idea. But it’s safe to say that we’re not in Metropolis anymore. Plus… in case no one noticed… We came with our mother’s and fathers.

Amy: If that is what you think… then one question. Where are they? And where are we?

Spencer: *Going on further to take a look around* Something doesn’t seem right.

Susie: *Catching Spencer walking off* Where do you think he’s going?

Penny: No idea. *Calling over to Spencer* Hey… Spence. Where’d you think you’re going? we’re surrounded by water. You can’t swim…

Spencer: Well… someone’s gotta do something. Waiting here is not getting us anywhere and you all know it.

Sapphire: Spencer’s right. we gotta to take a look around and find out what the blue balls is going on here.

Serena: Who wants to go first?

Zoey: This is a Job for Sailor Zoey.

Blossom: I’m going with you Zoey.

Zoey: *Nods* Okay. Let’s go.

Although from a distance up ahead…

Dinah: *Calling for her Daughters* SAPPHIRE! RAVEN! SERENA!!! ARE YOU OUT THERE?!

They were growing worried about their kids and started to scour the grounds in hopes of trying to find their kids. What they didn’t know was that their kids were at a distance and barely could hear the noise…

Serena: Wait! You guys hear that?

Raven: Hear what?

“SAPPHIRE! RAVEN! SERENA!!!”

Serena: That!

Raven: *Listening in* I think i hear it now too. It’s faint. But there is only one person we know that would sound like that when screaming out for us…

Sapphire: Mom. She’s up ahead. She’s gotta be. Let’s go. Our hero forms can hover and float over water… Let’s move.

Penny: Right. Let’s move! Now.

Annie: *With her sisters and Brothers* We can hover too… Come on guys. Let’s go and find our Mom.

Daria: Right.

Clint: Hands in.

Theodore: *Nods*

Annie: Miss Bliss. *Putting her hand into the middle*

Daria: Miss Passion. *Putting her hand into the middle*

Clint: Sir Love. *Putting his hand into the middle*

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lb6KUqMm_sA

With a flash of light and with a sudden down pour surrounding them… Annie and Daria were covered in Pink light and bare with exposed skin before being transformed. Red and Pink blouses covered the girls and Shirts with red and gold hearts appeared on the boys. Glittery Pink and fushia Skirts covered the lower parts of the Girls and Glittery red and Pink Pants covered the boys lower half. They had heart shaped rings and Jewelry appear on them in style. The girls had Tiara’s and the boys had German style hats on them. The girls received weapons in the shape of heart guitars that when stroked by the strings Turned into heart blasters that Released pure bursts of Love energy. The guys received weapons that were in the shape of Rods. Heart Rods. When Spun and twirled and then finished with a thump on the ground Firing a strong concentrated blast of Music and Blissful heart energy… The girls had shoes that were high heels with Nylon Leggings. The guys had steel toed cowboy boots that have laser lights on the bottom that with each step… Sang a tune of romance. Their Gloves were all Red with Tiny pink and black hearts decorating them.  Once fully transformed… They presented themselves in their alternate forms…

Miss Bliss: *With Miss Passion, Sir Love and Dancing Heartthrob; Posing in unison* Rhapsody Romancers Z!

Amy: *Looking at her sisters and Spencer* This is it… We’re with this power. Let’s get it out there.

Susie: yeah.

Christina: Okay. Time to finally transform.

Penny: *Nods*

Spencer: Hands in… how do we do it?

Amy: As we were entrusted with this power. The same as what our mother had… we came up with names. I was given the hero name Angelic Bubble.

Susie: Mines is Bubbling star.

Christina: I’m with the name Melodic Bubble.

Penny: Bubble Gem.

Spencer: Frosty Ice Bubble.

Amy: So… we got our hero names. Let’s transform.

A second later…

Amy: Angelic Bubble. *Putting her hand into the middle*

Susie: Bubbling Star. *Putting her hand into the middle*

Christina: Melodic Bubble. *Putting her hand into the middle*

Penny: Bubble Gem.*Putting her hand into the middle*

Spencer: Frosty Ice Bubble. *Putting his hand into the middle*

Amy, Susie, Christina, Penny and Spencer: *Chanting and Posing* RHAPSODY AQUATIC SQUAD Z! TIDAL WAVE DREAM ACTION!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TFLQf0RFImw

A storm of Ice and bubbles and sparkles surrounded them with it’s embrace. The appearance within seconds changed piece by piece. The girls were surrounded with Shirts that struck as Blouses and with designs on it. Shards of ice stuck out and shined light out which enveloped them with a white veil putting wings of light on them. Blue and white Blouses with bubbles all over.  A Skirt formed on them long skirts that sparkled with twinkling gems and ice dust. their shoes were high heeled Pumps in their sizes and had the designs of Ice and Gems. Bubbles on the bottom for the ability to hover off the ground. each of them had a tiara made of bubbles and gems. shining like the light of angels. Their weapons were the Bubble Gem grenade launcher, Bubble gloves, Bubble laser rod and the Bubbly Harmonica… With each blow on the Harmonica… a Sonic boom of Bubbling Ice gets released and fires at the target in sight. For Spencer got turned into a Monk of Ice and Bubbles. his attire was with the cross of Bubble Maiden and Jack Frost and the weapon was the Frost Scepter. and for the accessory was the Frost and bubble Charm bracelets. The footwear were the angelic slippers. With frost on the bottom to grant the power to swim.

Amy, Susie, Christina, Penny and Spencer: *Posing in Unison* RHAPSODY AQUATIC SQUAD Z!

Tidus: *Walking over suddenly from the other side and meeting with the fighters* You guys looking for someone?

Angelic Bubble: Yeah. Our Mother and father. The others as well.

Bubbling Star: Before we went through that vortex or pulled in by Sin… whatever that beast was… our mom and dad was here… with us. We get here… they vanish. We don’t know where they went.

Miss Bliss: We believe that they are up ahead somewhere… but we don’t know for sure. We don’t know. And we would go and get to them but we don’t want to go and make like they’re there and get there and find that they’re still missing.

Tidus: Don’t worry. We’ll find them.

Blossom: We hope so…

Melodic Bubbles: Let’s see if we can find a way out of this place. This is not a comforting location to just stick around in.

Miss Thunder: I agree.

Sailor Zoey: *Going on ahead*

They knew that standing around wasn’t gonna make anything change and the fighters knew that they had to have heard their parents voices come from up ahead. Even if there was a chance that it could have been a mind trick… the girls and the guys had to check it out. Knowing for sure. Paul and Crystal lead the way and had everyone keep a tight fix and not straggle behind. They were at Baaj Temple. It was stormy and dark and unknown. There was no telling what could happen. They had to stick as close as they possibly could.

Tidus went on ahead of them and and came across a narrow walkway. A Path that was narrow and slim that only one person could get on it at a time. He got to the Middle and suddenly stopped just look down. Raven looked down at the water below them and saw a tall statue and a door as well. There was even a cavern entrance. Although from the way they were looking… it was hard to see…

Sora: Tidus, What’s wrong?

Tidus: *Looking down then to the sides; Lost* Not sure. But i could have sworn i heard something.

Sailor Zoey: *hearing something* Tidus speaks true… There’s something under us… in the water.

Crystal: *Seeing something in her mind* I see… a few water creatures… Enemy presence nears.

Tidus: Huh?

Paul: Crystal’s right. Look down th—

Before they could make another move… the path gave way from underneath them. A portion of it crashed into the water and Tidus fell in. As did the fighters. All except Sora, Carly, Blossom and Zoey. they weren’t on the path. they were in the back and saw the path collapse and saw the rest plummet to the water below…

Thunderic Wonder: *In the water* I guess this place is truly living to its image. it’s a ruin.

Frosty Ice Bubble: I would think of it as just the fact that this place is practically condemned. It must have been a place that was destroyed about maybe a thousand years ago and was just left to the passing of time. Forgotten and left to fade and break apart little at a time. I think that this used to be a temple. A running temple of some sort.

Angelic Bubble: A Temple? What kind?

Bubble Gem: Why would there be a Temple here? There is nothing here. This place might have been one in the past… but i think that by looking here and seeing what this place is like now… There is no possibility that there was once a Temple of any kind.

Thunder Star: I think that we’re gathering that. This water is freezing. *Shivering*

Sailor Zoey: *from the side* You guys okay down there?

Miss Bliss: I think that you can see how we are here. We’re freezing and are in the water.

Sir Love: Yeah, Zoey. Don’t be acting so blind.

Tidus: *Looking around* ……

“SPLISH… SPLASH!”

At the end of the Path…

Dinah: *Seeing wild water creatures splashing in the water and Leaping over her daughters looming close* Oh no! *Panicking* My DAUGHTERS!

Paige: *Watching* Our kids are in trouble… We got to assist.

Within seconds the water creatures dived right on down into the water and tauntingly lured the fighters down into the water. Serena and Sapphire were the best swimmers and so were Clint and Theodore. They went down there with Tidus and faced the creatures.

Sir Love: *Tapping Theodore and Tidus* … *Signaling a Surround manuever*

Tidus: *letting off a Fist pump; agreeing*

They surround the creatures and Nail them. However there was one left and it just looked and staring at the fighters. Although what broke their attention was a low growl. Coming from the sides behind the rocks. It was enough to grab them to pay attention. Within seconds a large ferocious creature came busting out and Swam over towards them. It snapped at the last remaining water creature that was in sight and killed it. The creature swam around and then turned and faced Tidus, Clint, Theodore, Sapphire and Serena. Faced them and made the stare to intimidate them…

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLAfulP8fRw

Bubble Gem: *Looking down to see that creature* What the heck is that thing?

Melodic Bubble: Don’t ask. I don’t think we’d want to greet it.

Thunderic Wonder: Don’t just look at that thing. Let’s attack it. If we don’t attack that thing… they’ll be that thing’s next meal.

Paige: *Looking at her sisters* Ladies… Let’s Roll and transform. On the double…

Pearl: Right.

Dinah: Thunder Mistress… Time to come back from the reigns of retirement.

A second later…

Paige, Pearl, Dinah: *Getting in transformation pose* Rhapsody Girls Z! Power… Make-Up!

Paige: Miss Love Power… Make-up! *Transforming* …. *Raising her Power Buckle and surrounded by white light; Firing Hearts and Love; Throwing punches* PAIGE *Getting sprayed Twice with Hearts; Throwing kicks and sparkles of hearts around;  Absorbing Love’s power* … *getting the last spray and throwing her hands up into the air as Wings form* … *Shooting up into the sky and flying high spinning with with Romance charging up before Diving down releasing Loving Hearts; Landing* …. *Posing*

Pearl: Bubble Maiden Power… Make-up! *Transforming* …. *Raising her Power Buckle and surrounded by white light; Firing Bubbles and Throwing punches* PEARL!!! *Getting sprayed Twice with Bubbles and ; Throwing kicks and a storm of Bubbles around;  Absorbing Bubble power* … *getting the last spray and throwing her hands up into the air as Wings form* … *Shooting up into the sky and flying high spinning with Bubbles charging up before Diving down releasing Bubbles; Landing* …. *Posing*

Dinah: Thunder Mistress Power… Make-Up! *Transforming* …. *Raising her Power Buckle and surrounded by white light; Firing Lightning and Throwing punches* DINAH!!! *Getting sprayed Twice with Thunder and lightning; Throwing kicks and sparks of Lightning around;  Absorbing thunder power* … *getting the last spray and throwing her hands up into the air as Wings form* … *Shooting up into the sky and flying high spinning with electricity charging up before Diving down releasing Thunder; Landing* …. *Posing*

Paige, Pearl and Dinah: *Fully Transformed and doing a group pose* RHAPSODY GIRLS… Z!

Sir Love: *In the water and firing at the creature* ….

Geosgaeno: *Growling and letting off a roar*

Miss Love: *To Geosgaeno* Hey you! Hollow freak! You get away from my kids.

Thunder Mistress: You make a move on our kids and you’ll be wishing that you never encountered the likes of us.

Bubble Maiden: I think that it wants to fight. Let’s get it!

Miss Love: *Firing an attack at Geosgaeno* Love’s Blinding Heart BLAST!

Bubble Maiden: *Firing an attack at Geosgaeno* BUBBLES STRIKING CANNON!!!!

Thunder Mistress: *Firing an attack at Geosgaeno* Thundering Dragons!

Tidus: *In the Water; Slashing at the creature* Ha!

Geosgaeno: *Landing an uppercut at Tidus and the fighters battling* 

Dancing Heartthrob: *Firing a shot at Geosgaeno* 

They all serve another round of hits to the creature known as Geosgaeno and knock him back. But that was when everyone paused to see it prepare to loom at them…

Sir Love: *Looking at the others and Swimming off*

Dancing Heartthrob: *Swimming for it*

Thunderic Wonder: We can’t swim, But right now… we don’t have a choice. I think that the probability that we’re gonna be spared from being in the clutches of that beast down there… is slim. If we wanna live… we better split and get to where it’s safe. Now!

Angelic Bubble: Everyone… MAKE A SWIM FOR IT! SWIM FOR YOU LIVES!

Zoey and Blossom didn’t want to be left behind so… whether they could swim or not… Into the water they went as did the adults. They Leaped into the water and swam for the closest opening there was… Swam fast and hard… Tidus was right behind them. As they reached the entrance to the inside of the old building. the creature was starting to draw in energy and try to suck them inside of the creature. But it luckily failed. They made it inside however the creature banged hard into stone wall and it was a hard impact which caused the tunnel to shake and it sent them forward. flying forward and knocking them out for a moment…

Narrative: *As Raven* We made it barely out of the frying pan and right into the freezer. We made it out of the clutches of danger. But only to get ourselves trapped into the cavern… Tunnel. We kinda thought that we were gonna wind up dying in this place. This Tunnel.

The Entrance was caved in…

Blossom: *Rubbing her head while getting up* Ow! That hurt!

Zoey: *Getting up and looking at the tunnel* I don’t think we’re gonna be getting out of here.

Paul: *Getting up* Yes we are, Zoey.

Paige: *Shaking off the attack* God… That was not what i expected.

Pearl: Is there a way out of here?

Spencer: I think that there might be.  We will have to check. We need to look. I don’t want to remain in this small tunnel.

Sora: I don’t think that any of us do…

Carly: *Shivering* I am so cold.

Zoey: *Shivering and feeling cold* I am really cold.

Luna: *Walking over to her Daughter and hugging her* Come here. Don’t worry. We’ll keep each other warm.

Alvin: *Looking at Arnold and Curtis* Guys… want to join me on trying to find a way out?

Paul: Hey Pops! I’ll come with you.

Alvin: *Nods* Right. Let’s go.

As they were looking for a way out…

Tidus: The way out of this tunnel would have to be that door up ahead. It’d be our only way out from here. Or at least to a room that isn’t so narrow or constricted.

Jack: We’ll be letting Alvin, Arnold, Curtis and Alvin’s Son Paul look for that door. If there is a way out… they’ll find it.

Spencer: Wait… there isn’t any need to look for that door. There’s a door ahead.

Blossom: Let’s go. Please… I don’t want to be in this tunnel anymore.

They knew that they were rather stalling a little but it was rather understood for this was a world they knew nothing about. This was a world that was not their own. They had no familiarity with the world. If they were to go one way… they’d be turned around. The fighters were afraid to make much of any kind of move for fear of getting lost. The girls and the rest got up and walked over to where there was said to be a door and went through it. It was in hope that it’d get them at least out from the tunnel or narrow hallway that they were in…

A Minute later…

Raven: *Looking at the room* Oh god… this is gonna be our tomb. isn’t it?

Susie: Not likely… *Looking to the side and seeing a mini-waterfall* There’s a waterfall here. in this room. There must be about a couple stories in here. 4. Maybe 5.

Spencer: *Looking up* No. only 4. I’m counting 4. that can’t be any more than 4.

Blossom: *Walking over to the center* Hmm…

Carly: *Looking at Blossom and seeing her walk to the center of the room* What’s up Blossom? Something wrong?

Blossom: No. But i think that there’s signs that someone’s been here before. *Looking at the center and seeing a campsite or a washed out campfire* This used to be a campfire. there’s logs here. Logs. But they’re so old and wet… that they might not be able to light.

Paul: This room sure is a huge cavern. Large.

Penny: Let’s look for something to use to light up the logs and see if we can’t get a campfire going.

Sapphire: Good idea. Serena, let’s go and find something to use for the campfire. Annie Look around for anything that could be edible… We doubt that there is anything here to even chow down on… but we have to look. We have to…

Annie: Okay.

Zoey: *Still shivering* …

Tidus: I… need… food. *Rubbing his arms* It’s so cold in here.

Sapphire and Serena head off to look for items that could be used to start a fire. Annie looked for anything that could be food or be considered as food. However… she came up empty. Sapphire and Serena on the other hand found a withered bouquet and two pieces of flint. Paul looked at the campfire and saw that it was able to be re-lit. But it has been appeared as overly soaked for so long that there was little to no chance that it could be re-lit.

They lit the campfire a minute later as they found the items needed to get one started. They didn’t have any food and were hungry. They laid down and didn’t even notice how they happened to doze off. Tidus dozed off himself and had some dream…

A moment or so later…

A shadowed creature skittered around on the 3rd level and it was only a minute later when the girls woke up and saw that the fire was dying out.

Raven: *gasps* Huh… Oh no… The fire’s going out. It’s going out. *panicking* Don’t go out. Hold on… we’ll get more wood.

Zoey: *Looking up to see a shadow* …. We got company. Something is up there…

Luna: *Waking up* Huh? What? What’s up there, Zoey?

Spencer: She’s sensing a shadow and she’s right. there is a shadow up there and it’s starting to loom closer.

Epaaj

Epaaj: *Running around and rushing in a fast pace before landing in front of the fighters*

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLAfulP8fRw

Blossom, Paul and Crystal stepped up to battle the creature. Tidus was there to stand and fight too.

Blossom: *Drawing some Electricity from the air and Creating an Electric ball; Firing it at the Epaaj* Take that.

Paul: *Serving up some fire* Come and get it while it’s hot. A hot serving… Made just for you.

Crystal: *Silent* …………… *Performing a Psybeam; Launching a Psybeam at the creature*

Tidus: *Slashing at the creature* Ha!

The creature struck back and caused Blossom to be poisoned… Tidus didn’t have any antidote with him. He was wishing that he had some with him. The creature was battled and it went for about 3 rounds. It was gonna go on but that was when out of nowhere…

Luna: *Looking at the side door as it got blown off; revealing another path* What’s going on?

Amy: Is there something coming?

Pearl: Something’s going on.

Alvin: *Watching the door and looking to see a group of men stepping out with masks on their faces; seeing a couple with goggles covering the eyes* Who ordered for these guys to come knocking?

Avery: They sure do look rather a lively bunch.

Zoey: *Seeing another person coming in and stepping in front of the men who have drawn their weapons* Who’s that?

Penny: *Seeing the mysterious person* The person is a girl.

Clint: A girl?

Annie: *spotting the person in the wet suit* It is a girl. She looks like a swimmer. a undersea explorer.

Spencer: Don’t look now… But i think that she or he… or it is coming over. Standing next to Tidus, Paul and Crystal.

Serena: You think that maybe she’s on our side?

Sapphire: She must be.

Tidus: *to the mysterious person* You’re on my side? Cool!

As soon as the creature was defeated…

Tidus: *Pants trying to catch a breath* Whew! That was a close call.

Crystal: it was.

Paul: We’re gonna be facing a lot of these things… aren’t we?

Sapphire: Looks like that is a possibility.

Suddenly a bearded man walked over and grabbed at Tidus and then at Paul…

Alvin: Hey You! Let go of my son. get your hands off of him.

“Fryd ec ed?”

“Y veaht! Eh risyh teckieca!”

“Oac! Ed ec cu!”

“Fa gemm ed?”

“Fyed! Fryd ev ed ec risyh?”

“Drao yna dra cysa eh taydr.”

“E vunpet ed! Fa pnehk ed fedr ic.”

The Mysterious person then walks over to Tidus and Paul who were close by and looked before whispering in their ear…

Girl: *Whispering in their ears* Cunno. Pid e sicd syga ed muug kuut du dra udranc. *punching Tidus and Paul in the stomach knocking them out*

The men moved in and grabbed them and ordered for the rest to come too…

Black-out…

A Moment later…

On a Salvage Ship…

Tidus and the others start to rise…

Spiked blond hair: *Barks* Sit, captive. *whacks Tidus on the head*

Tidus: Ouch. That hurts.

Raven: These guys seem rather strict.

Gas mask: No moving. Stay there right where you are.

Serena: Hey. What’s your glitch? You knock him out then you are guys bring him here. with us all… And then you are to treat him like some slave?

Spiked blond hair: Silence!

Serena: Make me. *Standing her ground*

Gas Mask: *Tossing an antidote to Curtis* Ouihk uha celg. Drec cruimt ramb lina ran uv celghacc.

Curtis: *Nods* I don’t know who you are… but i do thank you for this. *Using the Antidote on his Daughter*

Brother: *Coming on deck with girl* Search him!

The girl Holds Tidus and Paul up and the rest all watch to see what happens. The Spikey haired blonde makes gestures of diving and swimming.

Tidus: I said i don’t understand.

Spiked blond hair: Insolent captive… *Thwacking Tidus and then starting to land a punch*

Girl: Fyed!

Suddenly…

Girl: He said you can stay if you make yourself useful.

Raven: *Looking to the others* She spoke. She must have heard us and understands us.

Sapphire: She must be very smart and sharp.

Daria: I think that she was listening to all we said.

Tidus: Wow! You mean that you understand me?

Tidus gets whacked again…

Tidus: Ouch!

Penny: Would you guys stop hitting him? He’s gonna likely get brain damage if you keep doing that.

Theodore: So… What? we got to work?

Clint: *Looking at the machine over on the other side* What is that thing?

Spencer: *Glancing at the machine* Looks to be some kind of Crane…

Brother: You don’t ever mind what machine is.

Annie: *Silent*

Sora: *Afraid to say anything*

Arnold: Who are these people? Are they even friendly or are they pirates? What?

Paige: I think that they’re some sort of new aged explorers.

Dinah: They must be pirates or something. They do seem like they are after some kind of treasure.

Luna: Treasure? Treasure… as in like what? What could they be looking for?

Zoey: *Shrugs*

Serena: So… Who’s all going?

Sapphire: Don’t know.

Girl: *To Tidus* Oh… I almost forgot…

The time passes a minute or two…

A moment later…

Girl: We found some ancient ruins right beneath us. It’s not active now, but there should still be some power left within it. We’re gonna go down there and activate it…and then we should be able to salvage the big prize!

Tidus: Mm.

Clint: *To the girl* Who’s all coming along to activate what ever it is that’s down there?

Girl: Anyone who wants to go.

Serena: You can sign us up.

Sapphire: Serena and I will come along to help.

Clint: Theodore and i will also help.

Tidus: *Nods*

Girl: Okay. Let’s get to work.

Tidus: Righto!

Dinah: Serena?! Sapphire?!

Serena: Don’t sweat it, Mom. we’ll be back. Don’t forget… i am like you. I ain’t gonna go down without a fight.

Sapphire: Easy there, Rambo. Let’s just help the girl and their crew with what they need. We’ll deal with the possible guilt and the rest if there is any after.

Serena: Yeah.

Serena and Sapphire Dive into the water as well as Clint and Theodore. Tidus Jumps and dives down into the water. Following the girl. the 6 of them make a swim for the bottom and head to the ancient ruins. They weren’t sure if there would be anything to find in the ruins. The Ancient ruins could have been completely dead. But the girl they were accompanying believed that there was something inside the ruins. some trace of power. As soon as they reached the ruins, Serena and Sapphire stuck their heads inside and looked around to see if the coast was clear. Seconds later they signaled that the coast was clear. They went inside and got to where there was a control board… A panel of some kind. Serena tried to see on getting it to work and couldn’t. Clint then tried and couldn’t get in either. Tidus tried to pound on it to get some response out of it. Nothing. Or was it? The door in front of them opened up and opened the way for them to swim on through it. However they were met by some Piranha Piranha’s. Clint and Theodore made fast work of them and destroyed them. It wasn’t long after when they reached an old Power source. Theodore went up with Tidus and looked through the power source and looked for something that would possibly kick some juice into it. There had to be something there that would kick it on. Tidus was able to find it. He had to pound on the side a bit to knock something loose and get it to respond. Theodore went and punched the power core and got to knock a bit more Juice into it. All it took was a few pounds against the sides of the power core… and it kicked on slowly then gradually picked up some speed and charged up like an Energizer battery. Charged up and kicked up to a high pace…

It was then that they swam back and looked for a way back out. But that was when they got met by a creature called  Tros. Serena and Sapphire looked at each other and shrugged. They had no idea where this creature came from and didn’t want to even worry about how it got into the Ancient ruin. It was only seconds later when Serena, Sapphire, Clint and Theodore. Tidus and the girl got into battle and faced the creature. The girl used some grenades on it. and Tidus attacked it. Clint and Theodore fired a shot from their rods. their weapons and Serena used her Thunder Boomerangs. Kicking the creature’s butt into next century.

It went for 6 rounds and the finishing blow went to Clint. One shot and the creature was outta there. it deteriorated into lights and dots that flew into the air.

They swam out of there and it was seconds from them that the Ancient ruins powered up and shined up its lights aiming it down to something rather huge. It looked like an Air ship… although it was so run down that it looked like it would be unable to be made into use again. Serena Looked down towards it and grinned. Clint looked down and had wide eyes while staring at the object that the lights were aiming at and just looked. It was a wondrous sight…

A Moment later…

Back on the Salvage ship…

“Fa vuiht dra yencreb!”

“Dra naluntc fana nekrd.”

“Huf, ruf du tnyk ed ib?”

Tidus attempts to follow them inside. but gets pushed back…

“You… Outside!”

Tidus: Hey! Wait a minute… I helped out, didn’t I?

Clint: That’s right. Where’s the civil thanks for our service here? We helped you guys locate the object that you were in search of.

Sapphire: Shouldn’t that mean anything to you guys?

The door closes and they’re left to wait… stay outside.

Dinah: Well… I guess we do the work and we get still left in the dust. That’s a swell how do you do for ya.

Paige: No kidding.

Dinah: So… Serena, Sapphire… How was it down there?

Serena: It was amazing. Pretty cool too. We saw this old abandoned object. Machine possibly that looked just like an airship. The lights shined right on it and it was as if it was giving a clear shot towards it. Seeing the supposed aircraft. I think that those people… whoever they are… were trying to claim it. Dig it up somehow.

Sapphire: Not sure how they intend to do that. They could use that crane on the side there… but that thing down there might be too heavy for them and would only snap the crane of theirs in two.

Serena: Well… They sure are up for taking it. They want it. They’re all for obtaining it.

Clint: They must be working for someone.

Theodore: Not likely… They’re obviously freelancers.

Raven: Was it really an airship?

Serena: Had to be. It couldn’t be anything else. It’s rather unlikely.

Paul: Unlikely? No… try improbable. For one thing… why would they want that thing down there? It isn’t like they will just intend to give themselves a set of wings. They’re not thinking on trying to fly that thing. Are they?

Paige: You’ll have to ask them. They’re the only ones who’d know and you can almost bet that they might slip off a secret or two.

Sapphire: You think that they’re gonna tell us? They don’t trust us… we’re captives to them. I don’t believe that we’ll get that right to know what they intend to do with that airship. I mean… do you?

Dinah: Good point.

Tidus: *Lying down and feeling famished*

Luna: *Looking at Zoey* I know. I’m hungry too. if we don’t get something soon… we’re gonna black out.

Curtis: That’s not uplifting.

Jack: No. It isn’t.

Theodore: Plus we’re in the middle of the ocean… what ever this ocean is called. Anyone know how to fish?

Alvin: *Nods*

Susie: Food. anything. *Groans in hunger* I’m so hungry that i could eat my own fingers. Kinda gross and disturbing… but at this rate. i’d rather not die of hunger.

Penny: Neither would I.

A little later…

Girl: *Coming out with a cart laid out with trays of food and canteens of water* … *tapping Tidus and one of the fighters*

Sapphire: *Coming to and Looking up to see the girl next to a Cart lined with trays of food and Canteens filled with water* Huh. Wha—?

Luna: *Seeing the cart* You have carts on this ship? That’s new. This ship isn’t one that’d have carts. *Groaning in hunger* My stomach won’t stop growling. Why won’t it stop growling?

Girl: It’s because you happen to be really hungry. Must have been a while since you guys had anything to really eat.

Raven: That’s a good humble guess. We had a feeling that we’d die of hunger if we didn’t get some food into us and soon.

Girl: That won’t happen. You guys shouldn’t be allowed to go without food. It’s inhumane. My brother and the crew down there felt bad leaving you guys all alone out here. We usually don’t eat much. but knowing that they believed that you guys were here and were famished. They’d have to make X-tra large batches of food to serve everyone. and to see that you had food to eat too.

Sora: *Thinking to herself* That’s nice of them to do. they don’t know us hardly and yet are tending feed us on top of themselves. That’s thoughtful.

Paige: *Getting up and Walking over to the cart* Let’s get everyone served.

Tidus: *Seeing the food in front of him* Whoa!… Right on. *Chowing down really fast and begins to choke*

Girl: Hey! *Offers Tidus a Canteen* It’s because you were eating too fast. knowing that you’re really hungry and were starving. it was to be expected. But you were eating too quick. You’re lucky that you haven’t passed out from choking.

As soon as everyone ate…

Girl: *Watching Tidus walk off a little* Hey!

Tidus: *Suddenly turning around to see the girl still there* Hey there. What’s your name?

Girl: Rikku.

Tidus: Whoa! You really do understand. Why didn’t you say so earlier?

Dinah: Rikku? You’re kidding, right?

Rikku: No. Not Kidding. That’s who i am. Why? Why would you ask if i was kidding?

Pearl: It’s not like we don’t believe that your name is Rikku, It’s just that our mother’s name is Rikku. Rikku Lorelai Rhapsody.

Rikku: Ahhh! That’s why. Okay. It’s nice knowing that there is someone who shares the same name i do.

Annie: You seem to really understand us alot. But if that’s the case… Why didn’t you say so earlier?

Daria: Yeah… Was the crew or the one that happened to be beside you earlier stopping you from saying anything?

Rikku: Well… that would be the reason why… Everyone thought that oui guys were fiends?

Spencer: Oui?

Rikku: Oh… Oui means you.

Tidus: Um, Who are you guys, anyway?

Raven: You guys seemed to be rather like Treasure hunters or Explorers of some kind.

Rikku: We’re Al-Bhed. Can’t you tell?

A second later…

Rikku: Wait! You guys aren’t Al-Bhed haters, are you?

Zoey: Uh-uh. We don’t even know what An Al-Bhed is. We’re not exactly from around here.

Rikku: I noticed that.

Luna: You have?

Rikku: Kinda. The way that one of you stood up to the crew… kinda made it clear that you were not from around here.

Annie: What do you think we are?

Rikku: I don’t know. Where are you guys from?

Paige: Metropolis, Kansas.

Tidus: Zanarkand. I’m a Blitzball player. Star player of the Zanarkand Abes.

Paul: Better believe it. He’s a star player. He’s got one heck of a throw too.

Rikku: Uh, Did you guys hit your heads or something?

Serena: Uh… i think you guys were the ones who hit us.

Rikku: You guys happen to remember anything before that?

Narrative: *As Luna* We started to tell Rikku everything we knew about Zanarkand. what we saw and how we endured Sin’s attack and how Auron and us were engulfed in this golden strange light. We even spoke about where we were from. Metropolis Kansas. Just saying things as they happened to come to mind. Although… that was when we started to wonder. Wondering if Rikku would see to believe it. It was something we’d have to admit where it was alot to hear and believe. We didn’t want to out do the exposure… but as it was… Rikku was our only link for figuring out where we were and what our chances in Spira were…

Amy: Did we… Say something funny?

Rikku: You guys were all near Sin.

Tidus: Mm-hm.

Rikku: Don’t worry. You’ll be better in no time. They say that your head gets kinda funny when Sin is near. Maybe you Just had some kind of dream?

Sora: You mean that we’re sick?

Rikku: Because of Sin’s Toxin, yeah.

Tidus: Are you sure?

Raven: You are not meaning to tell us that we are here in Spira and there is no way back to Metropolis… are you?

Annie: Please tell us that it’s not the case.

Rikku: Yeah. There is no Zanarkand anymore. Nor is there any Metropolis, Kansas. Sin destroyed it 1000 years ago. So no plays Blitzball there anymore. Nor does anyone live in Metropolis, Kansas anymore.

Hearing those words… Made their hearts drop. They felt weak in their knees suddenly and wanted to cry. But couldn’t. How could they? All they could do was hear Rikku out. It was all they had.

Tidus: What do you mean 1000 years ago? We saw Sin Attack Zanarkand. You’re telling me that it happened all about a 1000 years ago? No way? Not possible.

Blossom: There is no way that Sin could have destroyed Metropolis, Kansas. We all came from there. My family came from Metropolis. There was no Sin in sight. There was no sign of that monster anywhere.

It was only a Minute later…

Rikku: You said… You play Blitzball?

Tidus: Uh-huh.

Rikku: You guys are from Metropolis? Who are you guys? I forgot to ask earlier and i should have asked that in the very beginning.

Paige: We’re the Rhapsody family.

Rikku: Nice to meet ya. *Looking at the family and then at Tidus* You know… You should go to Luca. Someone might know who you are. or you might just find someone that you recognize.

Raven: Luca?

Zoey: Luca?

Rikku: *Groans*

Family: *Sighs*

Rikku: *Walking around and then patting their shoulders* Okay. Leave it to me. I’ll get you guys to Luca… Promise.

Dinah: …

Rikku: *Laughs* What? You guys would rather stay here?

Serena: Uh-uh! No offense to that, but we’d rather be back to our homes…

Rikku: Okay. I’ll go tell the others… Wait here. I’ll be right back. *Before walking to go and tell the crew* Oh… and one thing. Don’t tell anyone that you’re from Zanarkand, Okay? Yevon says it’s a holy place. You might upset someone. And don’t mention too much about Metropolis. It’s said to be rather forbidden to speak about that city. You could get into some big trouble over that.

Tidus: Ohh… Mm-hm.

Rikku then left them alone on deck…

Narrative: *As Annie* Our Metropolis… Our home… a forbidden place. Destroyed a 1000 years ago? Yeah right, we thought.

Narrative: *As Clint* Yevon? Sin? Luca? We never heard of Sin before and barely came to this world not long ago. When we came here… we thought that Sin or what ever that big huge creature was… took us to just far away place that we could just go back to in a couple days or so. But a 1000 years into the future and to a time where our home was thereby a forbidden place?

Tidus: No way! *Kicking side of the ship*

Serena: That is Ludicrous. Simply unreal. Our place of Origin? Destroyed? NOT POSSIBLE!

Raven: This is so Unbelievable…

The ship suddenly let off a fast shake as if something had hit it or that it managed to run into something…

It was seconds later when the ship started to shake even more and the Water began to splash about everywhere. It toppled them all on the floor and knocked them down. The door leading to the inside of the ship opened and the crew came out…

“Sin!”

“Ceh ec lusa!”

“Ihtan ic! Ihtan ic!”

Tidus: Whoa! *Getting thrown around by the waves*

Zoey: Mom! Help!

Luna: *Grabbing Zoey* Hold on tight, Zoey. I got you. I won’t let go. If we go… we’ll go together.

Blossom: *Tripping all over the deck* Whoa! Dad… Help! What’s going on?

Curtis: We’re under attack. Just grab on to something and hold on. Don’t let go.

But the waves kept coming. And one of the waves rose up and smashed into the ship and swept them all down overboard. The fighters and their parents were washed overboard…

Where was the whirlpool gonna take them? Where were they gonna wind up? The Whirlpool was pulling them in and surrounding them. As they were pulled down, Rikku was still on ship and she looked down at them and see them slowly fade within the whirlpool of the water. Pulling them in and sending them off to another location unknown. Is it us… or is the Rhapsody family being met with a continuous hand of bad luck and Misfortune? Learning that they might never get to see their home world again… Seeing Zanarkand attacked and being met with one dramatic situation after another… What were they gonna do? Find out in the next Chapter of the Rhapsody Girls Z! as the sage continues…
