The Thunder Plains…
The thunder and lightning was roaring across the sky. The skies were pierced the thunder. The Lightning was striking the towers which were scattered and standing throughout the plains. Lightning struck and it hit hard. Some of the lightning got close and ferocious to them…
Annie: *Jumps to the side* Whoa!
Daria: Ouch… That was really close.
Theodore: Did you guys feel the intensity of that one lightning strike
Blossom: That was too close for comfort. way too close.
Zoey: Something tells me that we better transform and have protection from the lightning.
Rikku: *Huddling to Spencer secretly* Oh, no…We’re here. *Cowers at a lightning flash*
Spencer: Calm down Rikku, It’s gonna be okay. We’ll all get through this. You’ll see.
Tidus: How are we supposed to cross that?
Serena: This is like a battle field of dodging the lightning.
Sapphire: You sure that we’re not gonna be expected to Ride the lightning. In lack of better term?
Kimahri: We cross. Avoid getting struck by lightning and we’ll make it.
Lulu: See the lightning rod towers? The lightning is drawn to them…hopefully.
Wakka: We head north, not too near and not too far from the towers, ya?
Lulu: Meaning we should avoid wide, open areas.
Raven: That’s easier said than done… there are… *Looking ahead and seeing a few towers and a lot of wide open space spread throughout* a few towers… but sure a lot of wide open space.
Sora: I’m not liking this place. *Shivering*
Carly: Me either. I think that coming through here is gonna be fatal to us. We don’t have much protection against the thunder. or the Lightning.
Rikku: *Cowers after another crack of lightning* I think I forgot something in Guadosalam.
Auron: Nice knowing you.
Rikku: Okay, okay! I’ll go!
Spencer: Auron, ease off of Rikku. Can’t you even see that she’s literally a nervous wreck and spooked up to her wits of this place? I too am scared. But So what? We’ll have to cross this place and Everyone can be shocked if they like. I’m sticking close to her. Don’t ask why… I’m gonna just say it is because i know how she feels about being in a rather frightening place. That’s all for now. *Standing next to Rikku*
Annie: I guess that would settle it.
Theodore: Sure does.
Zoey: Let’s get to it. Time to go on with the Journey…
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: *Posing*
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*
Theodore: Dancing Heartthrob. *Putting his hand into the middle*
Annie, Daria, Clint and Theodore: *Chanting and Posing* RHAPSODY ROMANCERS Z! Power… LOVE DREAM ACTION!
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: 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!
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.
Angelic Bubble: *With her sisters Bubbling Star, Melodic Bubble and Bubble Gem; With her Brother Frosty Ice Bubble* *Posing in Unison* RHAPSODY AQUATIC SQUAD Z!
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.
Miss Thunder: *With her sisters Thunderic Wonder and Thunder Star* … *Posing* Rhapsody Thunderic Force Z!
Paul: *Turning on the heat* Okay… Stand back. Paul The Flaming spirit Is turning up the heat. Let’s go.
Crystal: *Going Silent*
Wakka: *Noticing Crystal going silent* What’s going on with Crystal?
Sora: Nevermind. You don’t want to know. Just know that when she goes silent like that… that is when she is setting off to start using her one attack. PSY-BEAM.
Carly: Believe us… she has it. and it’s only when she’s really pissed off… Set to fight. or if she is setting to defend herself. So… Don’t get her pissed. You’ll be sorry for it. Trust us. We know. we have seen it.
They within seconds made way over and started their way through the Plains…
As they made their way…
A few fiends came p0pping on by…
Tidus dealt with the Raptors. Sora, Carly, Lulu and the Thunderic Force Z! dealt with the Lightning elemental fiends. Blossom helped. Auron dealt with the hard skinned fiend. The Larvae’s Yuna used her Aeons. Wakka used his Blitzball against the Flying Eyeball fiends. It was not till the north side of the Thunder Plains where they would face Iron Giant Fiends. But while on the south side… they faced what fiends that they were to see before them. Spencer and his team fired ice and water at the fiends in their way and blasted each one of them. Rikku, did some fighting too… She was scared of Thunder and Lightning. But not of the Fiends. She placed a brave front upon her face and attacked at the fiends. But as they made their way through… They soon came across Shelinda again…
Sailor Zoey: Shelinda?! What are you doing here? The thunder plains are dangerous. You could get struck with lightning.
Shelinda: I am not worried.
Thunderic Wonder: Why not? I would be terrified. The only thing that keeps us from being so terrified is the fact that we’re with the thunder element. We have the Thunder element… That’s our saving grace, but it still doesn’t make us any less terrified. The thunder here is still Violent. It could still strike at any one of us… at any time. You better get to safety while you can.
Blossom: What brings you out here standing anyway?
Shelinda: Is it true? I heard that Maester Seymour and Lady Yuna are to be wed! It’s such great news! I have to tell everyone!
Miss Bliss: What? What are you talking about?
Sir Love: Wedding? Yuna and Maester Seymour? *Shocked and with disbelief* Are you sure?
Angelic Bubble: We just left Guadosalam only just a moment ago. How on earth could news like this be spread so fast and so immediate?
Tidus: Where’d you hear that?
Shelinda: From the Guado. They were all very excited!
Thunder Star: I’ll bet. they are so obsessed with Yuna that they would see her as some Messiah. She’s a Summoner. Not a Messiah. Is everyone here that darn dense?
Melodic Bubble: I don’t think that the wedding will even happen.
Tidus: Eh. I’m afraid you heard a little wrong. Yuna’s gonna turn him down.
Paul: You better believe it, sister. We’re not on our way to meet him for a happy feast.
Tidus: Yep! No wedding!
Shelinda: I see… That’s unfortunate. Well I’m sure that people would have rejoiced all over Spira. *Sigh* Please give Lady Yuna my best regards!
Bubble Gem: We don’t mean on giving you the let down…
Bubbling Star: People should look further and look for a different way to rejoice. But a Wedding between Maester Seymour and Yuna is out. Besides… there’s something rather fishy goin’ on around here. Revolving a Sphere with a Will and the truth that Seymour is hiding.
Frosty Ice Bubble: You should beware of being near Seymour. Something about him is seriously off.
The fighters immediately pressed on within seconds and only got a few steps further when…
Thunder Star: Looks like even our good ole’ scout… Scholar Maechen is here too.
Miss Passion: He really does get around… doesn’t he?
Dancing Heartthrob: I think that we might have to be more use to seeing him all over the place in Spira from here on in. Ever since we arrived at the start of the Mi’ihen highroad and all the way in through to here.
Blossom: I Don’t think that he even rests. He must be on the go all the time.
Sailor Zoey: I think so too… But i would guess that for whatever reason… he is just winding up everywhere that we are.
Lulu: He is very wise in his research. He must have seen it all.
Wakka: Only difference is that he was not at the Mushroom Rock Road, eh. He might have been unable to pass through the gates to get through. Although how he could reach this far… he must have his secrets, ya.
Frosty Ice Bubble: We should go and see what he knows about this place. You all forget still… we’re not from Spira Originally. This is all rather… odd… new and unusual for us.
Rikku: *Grins at Spencer and Smiles* …
A second or so later…
Maechen: Well, hello there. Would you like to hear about this place?
Miss Thunder: Sure. Spin us a tale. What do you know about this place?
Maechen: Very well, let me tell you about the Crossing. A long time ago, this place was a traveller’s nightmare. “Plains of lightning, plains of thunder, those who cross are torn asunder.” Or…so they used to say. Then a name by the name of Bilghen appeared. Using machina, he built towers that served as lightning rods across the plains. Finally, travellers were able to cross in safety. Bilghen was building that tower over there…*Point to the tower over ahead a ways up* when he was struck and killed by lightning.
Sora: Do the history books serve to mention him anywhere?
Maechen: No. I’m afraid not. You see… Bilghen was an Al Bhed. Our history books never mention him.
Blossom: That’s terrible.
Miss Thunder: But these towers are working alright, aren’t they?
Thunderic Wonder: They seem to absorb a bit of the thunder and Lightning. And we haven’t had any close calls yet so far…
Angelic Bubble: That’s because we managed to stay out of the dampness of the plains… You notice that it’s mostly the parts that are damp that get cleared of being hit thunder and lightning?
Bubbling star: I’ve noticed. I noticed that right away.
Thunder Star: Let’s keep going. We should keep on going and keep walking. The sooner that we get out of this area here… the better.
Frosty Ice Bubble: Thanks for the historical fact, Maechen. It’ll help us know about this area.
It was then that they made way ahead and tried to get further on in the area and reach the end of the area. Leading to the next. However they still had a ways to go…
After a while of traveling through the area… A Loud crash of lightning struck the Nearby tower. Hitting it hot…
Blossom: Holy Molly! That was close!
Sailor Zoey: Those towers are turning hot. They’re turning into burned tips with all that lightning striking it.
Another Loud Crash of lightning hit the tower…
Wakka: Whoa-ho-ho! That was a close one! *Laughing loudly*
Lulu: Stop kidding around.
Miss Bliss: Yeah. This is not funny at all. the lightning could strike at us if we’re not careful. Do you really want to stand around and let it hit?
Sir Love: Stop laughing like a hyena about the lightning. It’s pathetic. Like Lulu said.
Wakka: Yes ma’am…
Rikku: Heh heh heh heh heh heh heh…
Frosty Ice Bubble: Rikku, are you alright?
Wakka: Hmm? What’s wrong?
Miss Passion: I think that she is growing terrified over this storm. I don’t think that she likes it here. She hates it here and i don’t think that i blame her.
Rikku: Eh heh heh heh heh heh heh…
Tidus: “Heh heh heh…” You’re givin’ me the creeps!
Sora: It gives me the creeps too. This is exactly something you’d expect from a scary movie.
Carly: But there’s no popcorn or soda-pop. *Sighs*
Rikku: *Cowering after another flash; suddenly skittering towards Tidus’s leg; startling everyone, grabbing hold of the leg and not letting go*
Tidus: Hey, whoa!
Frosty Ice Bubble: Rikku, Calm down. Settle down. It’s okay.
Rikku: I wanna go home! I hate lightning! I hate thunder! Let’s go rest over there! Please?
Auron: This storm never stops. Better to cross quickly.
Sailor Zoey: Auron, I don’t think we should do anymore crossing for right now. We need a break. Rikku is gonna be terrified till we are out of this Area. But she’s got a point somehow. We need to rest. You also need to have a little time to rest.
Blossom: Plus all this Thunder and lightning… it’s starting to really spook me. I know that i got the power to draw Electricity from any source of power and aim it. But… Even i have a limit.
Lulu: We really should keep going on ahead. We’re falling behind as it is.
Rikku: I know, but…Just for a little while?
Tidus: Heh, well? What now?
The party consisting of the fighters, the guardians and the Summoner come past another Travel Agency and a bunch of them were walking on. Spencer however… Stood right by Rikku and held her. He understood how she was feeling and was feeling rather appalled that the others were just gonna keep on going without being at least a tad lenient and considerate. Rikku wasn’t asking for much. Spencer knew and understood it better than others realized. But Spencer walked into the Travel Agency with Rikku and did something that shocked everyone. He asked for a room for him and Rikku. No one know what was going on… Spencer was not gonna tell. This was something he was gonna keep to himself till he was ready to come out with it. Whatever it was that he was planning…
Inside the Travel Agency…
Yuna: I’m…a little tired. *Approaches desk* Do you have a room available?
Innkeeper: Ah, Lady Summoner. Yes, just over that way.
Yuna: Thank you. *Heading for the hall*
Wakka: Uh, Yuna?
Lulu: It’s not like her.
Annie: She seems to be really bugged about something. She’s been like this since we left the Farplane and there was that shocking apparition from the spirit of Lord Jyscal. Then that sphere.
Clint: *Looking at the others* I think that it’s safe to say that it’s that Sphere she’s got on her. It’s making her turn out to be really out of place. She won’t even tell what it is.
Amy: It isn’t gonna be our problem. Not unless she’s in immediate danger. We all swore that we’d protect her from anything and anyone who was indeed a threat. That Sphere she’s probably got… isn’t a threat and with that… there is no need to worry or act. I mean… yeah, it is a bit funky and seems a tad odd. But that’s about all it is. There is nothing other than that to really see as a problem. There isn’t anything to worry about. It’s only a Sphere. That’s all.
Penny: Where’s Spencer?
Christina: Where’s Rikku?
Sapphire: They were here… weren’t they?
Blossom: I think that Spencer asked for a room and took Rikku with him.
Sora: What for?
Carly: Maybe to just talk and rest. Rikku was really terrified. I don’t know why.
Paul: You don’t think that… they would be doing anything… that they shouldn’t be doing in there… do you?
Crystal: No. not possible. They just barely fell in an infatuation with one another. There’s no way it’d get that far…
Rin came out from the hall into the front room…
Rin: *Looking to see a couple more travelers gone* Hmm…
Rin: *Walking over to them* How goes your study of our language?
Paige: I think that you’re looking for my sister Dinah. And if you’re here to ask my Kids… The language is hard to speak but they’re getting the hang of it. they’re studying it. A little at a time so they can absorb it well.
Rin: That is good to hear. Allow me to present you with this book for your study. *Presenting out another Primer*
Blossom: *Grins* Another primer? Wow. This will help us get more use on how to speak the language.
Zoey: Sounds nice. *Nods and Smiling*
Rin: I wonder…Would that be Sir Auron, by any chance?
Tidus: Yeah. That’d be him. Why?
Rin: Ah, as I thought! I’ve been wondering since I saw him at the Mi’ihen Highroad branch. *Approaching over to Auron* Sir Auron! I wonder if you remember me? Ten years ago, at the beginning of Lord Braska’s Calm?
Auron: Yes, I should thank you.
Rin: Not at all. I could not leave a wounded man to die. However, I was surprised when I saw you gone the next morning, with that wound. An ordinary man would not have been able to walk.
Auron: I’d rather…drop that subject, Rin.
Rin: As you wish. *bowing slightly before stepping away*
Clint: So… Anything going on that we ought to know about?
Rin: Maester Seymour and his entourage passed by a while ago. And the maester is to be married soon?
Raven: *Pauses* Huh? Would you like to come again with that last part?
Serena: Did you just say that the Maester is gonna be wed soon?
Tidus: Excuse me, where did you hear that?
Rin: The Guado are telling everyone.
Tidus: Oh, they are, are they?
Serena: *Rolling her eyes in an annoyed but all while groaning* Oh yeah… that’s just wonderful… Really. The Guado are hyped about a wedding that is not absolute. I swear… everyone must be truly dense. Seriously. The Guado are seeing Yuna as some Messiah. Get it through your heads people. Yuna is a human. A Summoner on a Pilgrimage to defeat sin. to bring the calm that everyone here wants to see come again. She’s not a god. She’s not the Messiah. Not even an oracle. She’s just Yuna. Get off the daydream of her being a possible Messiah. It’s getting a little irritating and deeply annoying. You are all expecting her to do nearly everything and it is likely if not already placing stress on her. It wouldn’t be a surprise if she’s not secretly a caffeine Junkie.
Sapphire: If she were in Metropolis… With that much stress… She’d be in route on a one way ticket to Straight Jacket city and Padded room central. The Summoners do the Sending. They are to defeat Sin. bring the calm. That is all fine. But by you guys just expecting her to do it all… It is like you’re setting her up to fail. It’s really deconstructing on the mind.
In one of the rooms…
Spencer: Rikku, Are you that scared of the Lightning and the Thunder?
Spencer: I don’t want to come off as being rather insensitive over this… but isn’t it rather stupid to be terrified of Thunder and Lightning? I am scared of it too… but not that scared where i wind up cowering at each and every clap of thunder and flash of lightning. What made you so scared and terrified of the Thunder and Lightning?
Rikku: When I was little, a fiend attacked me while I was swimming at the beach. My brother tried to beat it back with a spell. *Squealing as another Thunderclap sounds off* But he missed and hit me instead! It was a Thunder spell. “Bzzzzzzt!” It hit me and it really stung me, Spencer.
Spencer: Ouch… That must have really hurt. I’m sorry, Rikku. Will you be okay?
Rikku: I think so. But i’ve been scared of Lightning ever since.
Spencer: It can be very effective against Marine fiends. It is known to be very useful.
Rikku: My brother said the same exact thing.
Spencer: Why not see about learning a few spells. Give yourself an edge. I will help you out with it if you want.
Rikku: *As another Thunderclap hits* Aaaaah!
Spencer: Perhaps… a little later. Maybe.
Rikku: *Looking down* Sorry. You must think that i am a total coward.
Spencer: No. I don’t. Because if i did… i’d have to think of myself as one. There are some things that even i am a scared of. But for the life of me… i can’t seem to think what they are. But i know that i am scared of fire. It’s only because of the condition i have. I can’t even get close to it without feeling as though i am burning up inside.
Spencer: No arguments there. It is a bummer. But i guess that i am pretty used to it. i had to get used to it. what was i to do? I couldn’t cry about it. It wouldn’t get me anywhere.
In the hall though…
Tidus was walking through the Hallway and happened to overhear a man’s voice. He didn’t know what it was. Who it was or who it could have been. But he got to the door and tried to listen closely…
Tidus: Wha…? *Accidentally pushing the door open and falling into room* Whoa!
Yuna: Y-Yes? *Quickly switches off sphere on table*
Blossom: *Suddenly standing in the hall and looking in* What’s going on? Is everything okay?
Tidus: I…well… It’s nothing, really. I…I just, uh… I’m sorry… I shouldn’t have come in. *Pauses at door* H-Hey! Wasn’t that that Jyscal Guado guy? Were you watching that sphere?
Blossom: Sphere? What sphere? *Walking in and taking a look at the sphere* Are you talking about the sphere that fell from that spirit of Lord Jyscal Guado. The one that was said to be unable to fully detach from the world?
Yuna: Oh! *Nods* Ah… The sphere is his will… It says, “Take care of my son.”
Blossom: You sure that it said that? You’re not changing the words on it… are you?
Tidus: Huh. His son…? Seymour?
Sora: *Walking in suddenly* Seymour? Seymour’s Jyscal’s son? *Gasps*
Carly: *Does that mean what we are thinking it could mean?
Sora: I hope not…
Tidus: Well, I know one way to take care of him.
Blossom: If Seymour had anything to do with the death or departure of Lord Jyscal… Something will need to be done. But… Why would you have that Sphere, Yuna? Did Jyscal mean for it to go to you?
Yuna: I’m sorry. *Fleeing*
Sora: What’s going on? Where did she run to?
Carly: Was is something that we did?
Sora: Is she gonna be okay?
Carly: I don’t know.
Blossom: I think that the Sphere is what’s making her come out as being really uneased. She just gets really reluctant when it comes to bringing up the Sphere. I think that she’s trying to keep us in the dark.
Sora: I think so too… But what do we do? We can’t make her tell us.
Carly: I really don’t get it.
As Tidus starts Edging towards the Sphere…
Wakka suddenly popped in and grabbed him; Putting him into a headlock…
Wakka: What do you think you’re up to?
Tidus: *Gagging; struggling* Yuna…Yuna was acting funny, s-so…
Wakka: Yeah, yeah! She’ll tell us when she’s ready, so hold your chocobos till then, ya?
Tidus: All right! All right! All right!
Blossom: *Huffing at Wakka* Wakka, You big meanie! Let him go. *Drawing some thunder and electricity* … *Aiming it right at Wakka* Wakka… Drop it. Now. Let him go. Release Tidus, Now! Right now. You have him in a headlock… He is gagging and choking. You’re choking him. Release him.
Wakka: You guys shouldn’t be in here in the first place, ya. Yuna was needing some time alone. and it had to have been for a good reason. You barging in here like that was nosing around. Your parents would be very upset at you guys for doing that.
Blossom: *giving off a statement* Like you wouldn’t be a little curious. Yuna had that sphere. It obviously was presenting that spirit that we all saw coming from the Farplane. You really think that it wouldn’t be that much of a coincidence that a spirit would just pop out and it happened to be Jyscal and he would just drop off a sphere. Obviously something was not right and Jyscal… Seymour’s father had something to tell. I don’t think that we’d be smart about going on and turning a blind’s eye and not be rather curious. If you were even with a mind… You’d see or want to know what was going on. Yuna’s with a Sphere. A Will. Of a deceased Maester. dropped by a spirit… the same spirit that the will is revolving. She is also hiding it. Why?
Wakka: That I don’t know, But being in here and barging in like that is bad. You shouldn’t have done it. it wasn’t right, ya.
Sora: Yuna’s hiding something and i don’t think that it’s good.
Carly: Me either. *Walking out of the room and back to the front room*
As for Spencer…
He and Rikku were Asleep and Side by side. It wasn’t but an hour later when they woke up and saw that the thunder was still going… but it wasn’t as bad as it was before. It died down a bit. Rikku however was still spooked about it and didn’t really want to go. Spencer however assured her that she’d be alright. He would guard her and cover her from the thunder and lightning. She agreed and met back with the crew and they all set out again. The fighters all changed back into their hero forms and pressed on…
Miss Bliss: Here we go.
Sailor Zoey: It’s still stormy out but the good thing is that it’s not as bad as it was at first.
Blossom: It died down a bit and there’s not as many lightning strikes as there were before. That’s a step up.
Bubble Gem: Right.
Paul: Let’s get to it…
A few seconds later…
Northern side of Thunder Plains…
Throughout the Northern part of the plains they had to face a few of the Iron Giants. Serena and Raven shocked them as Spencer froze them along with the girls with the water powers spraying water on the iron giants. It was only a little ways away when…
Wakka: What’s up?
Paul: Yuna, You alright? You’re not getting cold feet, are you?
Crystal: We’re almost out of this area. We shouldn’t be stopping. Not like this.
Miss Bliss: Something wrong?
Sora: *Shivering* I’m feeling really cold.
Carly: Same here… *Shivering* There is still thunder roaring in the sky here. We need to keep moving.
Yuna: I have something to tell you.
Rikku: We’re almost out of here! Let’s go!
Yuna: I have to say it now!
Auron: *Turns towards nearby shelter* Over there.
Thunder Star: Yuna, If you want to talk about what’s on your mind… we’ll be all ears. But not where we could all get zapped. Standing here in the open like this… we will get zapped and literally fried.
A minute later…
Narrative: *As Raven* Somehow, our bad feelings always came true.
Yuna: I’ve decided to marry.
Lulu: *Shaking head) I thought so.
Sir Love: Yuna, Are you sure that you want to just marry Seymour?
Dancing heartthrob: It isn’t too late to think about another path to take with this. You don’t have to go through with it.
Rikku: *Cowers at another bolt*
Wakka: B-But why? Why’d you change your mind?
Yuna: For Spira’s future…and Yevon’s unity. I thought it would be the best thing to do.
Auron: That’s not good enough.
Sailor Zoey: So… you are doing all this for Spira? But what will you get in return?
Bubbling Star: It is not even close to good enough. Yuna, You are giving yourself off for something that might not even be real. Seriously… What if you arrive where Seymour is supposed to be and you get… stood up? You are with no idea that this could be just an illusion. It’s like a lesson from where we come. To every deal… there is a string attached. A Catch. You always had to read between the lines and read what is really there.
Lulu: Wait, is it… Is it because of Lord Jyscal?
Tidus: Hey! That sphere!
Auron: Show me.
Blossom: That’s right. The Sphere. It was like a Will of some sort. But it sounded sad.
Yuna: I can’t. I must speak to Maester Seymour first. I truly am sorry, but this is… It is a personal matter.
Crystal: Not too personal, right?
Wakka: You’re kidding, ya?
Auron: *Turning away* As you wish.
Yuna: I’m sorry.
Auron: Just one thing.
Yuna: I won’t quit my pilgrimage.
Auron: Then it is…fine.
Tidus: Wait a minute, Auron! You don’t care? I mean, you’re not going to stop her?
Auron: No, I’m not. As long as she is willing to face Sin…all else is her concern. That is a summoner’s privilege. As long as she journeys.
Miss Thunder: It is a Summoner’s Privilege to keep things from her Guardians? *Confused and lost; feeling ecstatic* You must be kidding us here. Yuna’s got that sphere. She’s not willing to show it over right now… but it is not some game for her to be playing. This could be putting a target on her head. If Seymour were to catch on and see that she had a sphere of Lord Jyscal… Seymour could turn hostile and go into a lockdown.
Tidus: *Looks over at Wakka and Lulu. Wakka nods.* But that’s… *Growling and sputtering*
Wakka: Yuna, just one question. Can’t you just talk to Maester Seymour? You’ve got to marry him?
Yuna: I don’t know. But I think it is the right thing to do. And Sapphire, Serena, Paul, Susie… I understand your concern. I am grateful that you’re all worried about me. But i’m gonna be okay.
Wakka: Okay, I guess.
Sailor Zoey: You think that you’ll be alright? You’re not realizing that Seymour’s not as safe as you are expecting. Remember what Queen Serenity said to do. Take warn and be very cautious towards him. Not knowing who your foe is could be your means for a wake up call.
Rikku: Yunie… *Taking Yuna’s shoulders; glaring up at another flash* Quiet! *To Yuna* I wish we could help somehow, some way!
Frosty Ice Bubble: We’ll be with you no matter what it is you decide. But you should still watch your back and don’t let your guard down at all.
Yuna: *Puts a hand over Rikku’s Shoulders* It’s okay… I’ll be fine.
Paul: *Narrative* She says, “I’m sorry.” He says, “It’s fine.” She’s “willing” to face Sin. She’s “privileged.” We didn’t understand. But somehow, We felt like we didn’t belong. But if we didn’t belong with them, we’d be stuck in Spira, alone. And being alone in that place, well, we didn’t want to think about it. Not even for a moment. We knew that Yuna was risking herself over that Sphere and her thinking that she had to marry Seymour. Some of us felt that she was off the track of common sense. But a bunch of us also sensed her resolve on the issue. We couldn’t help but notice that she was sure about the choices that she was making. All we could do was try to be around for her and be there when she needed us. It was all that we could do. Nothing more or less than that. we couldn’t do a thing more. We were against the idea of Yuna going through with the idea of marrying Seymour. It wasn’t that we didn’t want for her to be happy… We were feeling something wrong was going on. We were with the sense that there was something terribly wrong coming from Seymour. Raven was still with the infatuation… but even that would reach its end. once she were to see the truth and see Seymour for what he really was… if it were that he was at fault of any kind…
Auron: Next, we’re going to Macalania Temple. Yuna can talk with Seymour there. We guardians will wait until they’re done, and plan our next move. Understood?
Miss Bliss: That’s fine by us. We just hope that she is careful with what she is planning. Because we have this funny feeling that something’s gonna go terribly wrong here. I don’t know how… i don’t know in what way… but something is not right.
Miss Thunder: We should get going. We’re almost at the end of the path here and leading right to the next area.
Thunderic Wonder: What’s the next Area called again?
Lulu: Macalania Woods. past that.. North is Lake of Macalania. Beyond that is the Temple.
Angelic Bubble: Sounds like an agreeable Itinerary to act on.
Melodic Bubble: It’s settled. We press on.
Sailor Zoey: Next stop… Macalania Woods.
With not a second more to waste… They got right on the way to Macalania Woods. They were really close to the end of the plains. Rikku was itching to get out of the plains and Spencer was right with her running towards the woods. the rest of the fighters and the guardians as well as the Summoner all walked towards the Woods. It was cold and the woods were even colder. But it was to be expected as it was an area of ice. There was nothing stopping them from going to Macalania. Rikku could not get out from the Plains fast enough. None of them could. Sora and Carly wanted out of there too. They wanted to get to where it was safe. or at least not so treacherous. But there was one thing that got them stopping. in their minds all they could think about was what Yuna was up to. They knew that there was not much that they could do to stop her from going through with the marriage proposal to Maester Seymour. The Rhapsody Romancers Z! were worried for her. So were the Aquatic Force Z! The Thunderic Force Z! and Zoey. She too was worried. Concerned and all wished that there was something that they could have done. Anything. But the minds were a blank. A complete Blank. It was onwards to the woods. What were they gonna expect to see happen while in the woods? Would they come across a meet with the knights again? And more behind the mystery of the Summoners vanishing. It seems that another Summoner was taken. Another one was snatched and abducted. Who could it have been? Plus there is likely a personal talk with the mother to the Thunderic Force Z! Something about Wakka being a mean Judgmental guy to the Al Bhed and how their family could ever see him as a friend… Uh-oh! Looks like Wakka might be in hot water soon. Very soon if Dinah hears the details… Or will she be told at all? Will Raven’s constant infatuation with Maester Seymour be exposed to Dinah and Dinah let loose over it? Will Rikku and Spencer consider telling the others and the guardians officially that they are a pair? What’s this… A secret spot that Auron knows about that had held a memory or two for him, Jecht, Braska and Princess Aquamarine… (That name again… As Dona would say: “My my my… Aren’t we getting popular?) Find out what’s next in the next chapter of the Adventures of the Rhapsody Girls Z! as the Saga continues…
Into the woods we go with the Rhapsody New Generation of fighters. Into the woods we go with the ice and the chilly air. Warmth… Anyone? Get to the other side fast for some light in “The Macalania Woods scramble or The Rhapsody Aquatic Force Z! Advance to Survey the area.”
