(Rikku gets the Racial sting… So Says they… So Says Rhapsody.)
Annie: *Shivering* It’s cold here.
Daria: Really cold. How can anyone stand the cold climate like this?
Clint: *Walking* Oh yeah… it’s cold. The area is said to be of Ice. This is a cold area.
Lulu: You guys should have brought something warm.
Theodore: We know. We should have. But of course… we forgot.
Blossom: *Looking to the side and seeing a bird with Armor and a guy tending to the bird* There’s a Chocobo and one of the knights.
Zoey: What? Who?
Carly: Clasko?! What’s he doing here? Isn’t he supposed to be with the others. Lucil, Elma… and Dinah?
Paul: He is supposed to be with them… but unfortunately… he isn’t.
Wakka: What do you suppose he’s doing sticking around here, ya?
Penny: We should go and find out…
Crystal: let’s go ask.
Clint: Good idea.
The crew all walk over to the side of the Agency and come across the lonely Knight standing by the mounted Chocobo…
Clasko: Hi there. Would you look at this? They always leave me behind.
Blossom: Why? Why are they leaving you behind all the time?
Zoey: You’re part of the team, aren’t you?
Clasko: Yeah. But there are times where it just doesn’t seem like i am.
Clasko: Oh. You want me to scratch you? *Gently scratching on the Chocobo* There you go.
Chocobo: *Contented* Kweh.
Clasko: Good boy!
Theodore: *Caught by surprise* H-h-h-h-how did you do that?
Tidus: How’d you know what it wanted?
Clasko: I’ve always been able to tell how chocobos feel. Maybe I’d make a better chocobo breeder than Chocobo Knight, huh? Hey, what job do you see me doing?
Serena: Clasko… You’re a Knight. But if you’re with better skills towards being a Chocobo Breeder and caring for them… and you are wishing to be that more than being a knight.
Sapphire: You should speak up about it and tell Lucil and Elma.
Clasko: You’re right. I should.
Daria: It’d be a good idea to bring it by them. I mean… they’re never gonna know how it is that you feel if you don’t tell them. You owe it to them and to yourself to be honest. If you want to be a Breeder from now on… you should let them know. Have them hear you out.
Clasko: *Nods* I will. Thank you.
Zoey turned to see O’aka nearby and noticed that he wasn’t too happy. Zoey was curious as to why and figured to ask as to why O’aka wasn’t happy…
Zoey: *Walking over to O’aka* Hey there, O’aka. You okay?
O’aka: No, Me ain’t okay at all, lass. Not in the least.
Zoey: Why not? You are finding customers, aren’t you?
O’aka: That i am, Lass. But look at this…
Zoey: *Looking at the Building* What?
O’aka: Curse that Rin for taking up a place like this! He’ll be rich by tomorrow all on account of this celebration thing!
Zoey: O’aka, you know that it’s called business… Right?
O’aka: I do.
Zoey: Rin is running a business as well… this is one of his many branches of Travel agencies that reside throughout Spira.
O’aka: *Curious* All over Spira, eh?
Zoey: Yeah. Why?
O’aka: He’s not with one in places like Besaid Isle, Kilika and Luca.
Zoey: *Stops and thinks about What O’aka said* Hmm… you have a good point. He doesn’t. I think that my cousins and Uncles and i noticed it. It’s not that far of a coincidence either.
O’aka: I reckon’ that ye’ should ask him why that is.
Zoey: You have a point, O’aka. You do. I should ask. Next time that we see him we’ll be certain to ask him about that. It’s his business after all. He should be one to know first hand as to why there’s no Travel Agency branch in Besaid, Kilika or Luca. It’s likely that he just didn’t think to place one there or he just didn’t want to. Or because he wasn’t permitted to do so.
O’aka: Perhaps he wasn’t permitted to do as such, Lass.
Zoey: Maybe. But you shouldn’t be too uptight about one being here… the event that is likely to go on at the temple is hard to be sure of. We are kinda hoping that there isn’t. Although… with the Guado being relentless… it’s gonna happen whether we want it to or not. And it seems that the Al Bhed and the Guado are not liking each other.
O’aka: Ah… That there ’tis a shame to hear. It seems mighty like a struggle between the two races.
Zoey: My cousins are also starting to get a whiff of it and they’re not liking it at all.
O’aka: Me don’t blame them. I feel the same way.
Zoey: I just wish that Racism and hatred could just stop. It makes me feel really upset knowing that there is racism and hatred going on in Spira. The Al Bhed are hated. and the Guado are just loving it. They’re all for seeing to it that the Al Bhed are ridiculed and persecuted for even living or existing.
O’aka: ’tis a sad thing indeed, Lass. It is truly a sad thing.
It was only a minute after that when they all stationed inside the Travel Agency…
Lake Macalania Travel Agency…
Wakka: Seriously… A wedding’s not supposed to make people feel this bad, huh?
Sapphire: It isn’t even a Wedding yet. Wakka, You are seeing it as a wedding when there isn’t one. It is only an engagement so far. Because right now… the ball is still in our court. in Yuna’s court. It’s her call… she can still decide to say the hell with it all and deny the proposal and ditch Seymour. She still has that time to decide. But that is now. If she steps inside the Temple and meets up with Seymour… it’s likely to be over. Because there will be nothing that any of us can do. There won’t be a thing that any of us can do.
Tidus: Come on, don’t say that!
Wakka: Hmph! I say whatever I want, ever since I was a kid!
Serena: Yeah… and look where it’s taking you… You’re really on a roll. *Rolling her eyes*
Tidus: Oh, so you’re an adult now?
Wakka: You know it!
Serena: Then act it. Don’t be a Jerk to others. And you know who i mean.
Wakka: *Ignoring the statement*
Spencer: Wakka, Why do you have to be such a douche bag?
Penny: *Groaning* God… How much longer do we have to wait here?
Tidus: Do you think that the Engagement will go through?
Wakka: I can’t say. Be sure nice if we knew though.
A second later…
Wakka: Anyways… How long we supposed to stay here, you think?
Tidus: Hey, don’t ask me!
Wakka: Things’ve sure gotten complicated since Sir Auron joined us.
Tidus: You think so, too?
Sora: Maybe things have gotten complicated… since he came along… but we can’t be denying the fact that if it weren’t for him… We would have been still on the Mushroom rock road and wondering what was really going and plus the deal with Jecht. Braska and not to forget the Princess as well. We didn’t know much about her till him. Till he came… we were shooting side shots and hoping to make a dent in getting to the bottom of everything.
Carly: Very true. Very true.
Over by Auron a minute later…
Auron: Anything can happen.
Tidus: “Make sure you’re prepared,” right?
Paul: That would be the consensual thing to do. Being prepared for what might come will not only be a help… but will help ensure that we stay alive. or at least safe.
Auron: There is a saying: “Hurry up and wait.” It means, prepare quickly so you’re ready for whatever comes next.
Tidus: Sounds like something an old man would say.
Crystal: Anyone can be ones to say things like that, Tidus. It’s what anyone would say. It’s a good bit of advice.
Auron: *Irritably* Forgive me.
Tidus: Hey, just being honest!
Paul: You could be a bit nicer about it… All this waiting is getting us literally nowhere.
Blossom: I agree. We need to keep going.
Raven: *Looking at Yuna* Don’t forget to smile, Yuna.
Raven: Smile. Remember?
Yuna: Oh… right. I’ll remember.
Clint: *Standing next to Kimahri* How’s it hanging, Kimahri? How’re you holding up on all this?
Kimahri: *Shaking his head* Kimahri not sure.
Clint: You too, huh? *Patting gently on Kimahri’s shoulder* Don’t feel bad. I have the same feeling myself. And i agree… You’re probably gonna think to ask why we’re stopping here… I wish there was an answer to that. I really do.
Zoey: *Walking over to the Scholar standing close-by* …
Tidus was close by as well…
Maechen: I’ve heard Lady Yuna is to wed Maester Seymour. It is great news. I’d like to congratulate her. But…it is a pity. I’d hoped Lady Yuna would defeat Sin and bring the Calm to Spira.
Zoey: She will…
Tidus: Yuna’s still gonna journey, even after she’s married.
Zoey: If she is to marry Seymour at all, that is.
Maechen: Ah! That is also great news! Her resolve is admirable!
Zoey: Sure is. *Smiles* She’s so courageous. I however sense that even though on the outside she’s smiling and is showing how strong willed she is… Inside, She is possibly hurting and in pain. Suffering from the pressure and the stress.
Maechen: You should let her know that she’s not alone.
Tidus: We will.
Maechen: Would you like to hear about Macalania?
Zoey: Sure. *Nods*
Maechen: Lake Macalania is frozen over all through the year. It stays frozen even on the hottest of days. It is said that the temple’s fayth is the cause of this fantastic phenomenon! And that is all for today. Hopefully I can be present at the wedding. It is not every day that one can attend such a joyous event.
Daria: I agree. Events like that don’t come around every day.
It was getting around time for them to head on forward… But Some were reluctant on going as they were trying to see a way that Yuna didn’t go for the Proposal and that Raven’s attempt to adhere to Seymour’s call to be seen as a father figure to her, Sapphire and Serena. Time was running out for them and they all knew it. They could feel it. They could all feel it and none of them liked it. None of them liked it at all… Alvin looked at his kids and tried to leave off with a smile and not think that something was gonna happen. But he couldn’t deny that his kids were gonna be in danger. At least the younger twins were in possible danger; making him feel uneased. Time was running out. How were they gonna get the event stopped?
A Moment later…
Serena walked out first and looked to see that the two snow mobiles that were close by were gone…
Serena: *Looking at the girls and the crew* Uh… Okay… I think that we have a problem.
Wakka: What’s up?
Raven: What’s up now is that the snow mobiles that were sitting by that ledge across from us… Are missing.
Kimahri: Kimahri smells trouble near.
Serena: Trouble? Trouble as in a rash attempt in two races in a clash. Batting heads? Possibly the Summoner being snatched? That is a good observation, Kimahri. Because whoever owns those snow mobiles… they’re planning something.
Annie: What though? What could they be up to?
Theodore: Okay… *Looking to the others* As of right now… till we know what the heck is going on… we stay close. Eyes open, Mouths shut. and on alert. listening in on any and all sounds. foreign and domestic. Kimahri, How is your watchdog instinct?
Kimahri: It’s effective.
Serena: Good. Get to keeping watch. Any signs of danger… howl. Roar. Whatever it is that you gotta do. Do it.
Blossom: Something very fishy is going on here. Very fishy.
Lulu: *Curious* ….
The Fighters made way down the path leading to the lake and all the while walking down the path… The Rhapsody fighters were on alert. Keeping their eyes open and staying alert…
Suddenly, as soon as they got near the end and were at the edge of the vicinity of the lake…
Tromell: Lady Yuna, we’ve been expecting you. We were surprised you decided to come so soon. Pleasantly surprised, of course. Lord Seymour sends his apologies for having left without notice. *Deep Japanese bow*
Susie: Oh… It’s alright. Things do happen after all.
Raven: We are well aware that when the Maester is in need to be somewhere and he’s got business to attend to. Who’re we to complain?
Yuna: It’s quite all right. I have one question, if I may, sir.
Tromell: My lady?
Yuna: I want to keep journeying, even if I marry. Do you think that Maester Seymour would let me?
Tromell: But of course, my lady. Lord Seymour wishes nothing else, I’m sure.
Christina: That’s a plus to expect then. Because Yuna’s come rather far now… it would be atrocious for her to stop her pilgrimage now. Any Maester who would move to have a Summoner quit their pilgrimage… should rethink about why they became Maesters to begin with.
Yuna: *Smiles and bows head to guardians* Goodbye.
Tromell: Well… We must follow Guado tradition. I’ll have to ask you wait here a little while longer. I’ll send someone to escort you. *Leaves*
Yuna: *Hangs back* I…
Auron: We’re all with you. Do as you will.
Blossom: We’re with you no matter what, Yuna.
Serena: You don’t ever have to ask. We will be with you all the time… any time.
Yuna: Thank you. *Leaves*
Auron: *To Tidus* Sorry.
Auron: That was your line.
Tidus: Yuna! *Whistles*
Rikku: Oh, no!
Snowmobiles suddenly drove up and started circling around and began to surround Tromell and Yuna. The fighters all saw the snowmobiles surround Tromell and Yuna on the frozen lake…
Wakka: Al Bhed!
Spencer: here we go…
Annie: Time to transform everyone.
Amy: Guys… Let’s get to it.
Sapphire: Electric shock time.
Annie: Miss Bliss. *Putting her hand into the middle*

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.

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.

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

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!
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* I am the senshi of Love and Justice and the defender of the innocent, Sailor Zoey. In the name of the Rhapsody clan… The guilty at heart will be punished.
Once transformed and ready and without a second left to stop and think… the fighters and Guardians all rushed to aid Yuna and Tromell…
The fighters and Guardians surround Tromell and Yuna coming to their rescue…
Auron: Stand back.
Miss Bliss: Sir, don’t stand and wait. Get to safety. immediately.
Thunder Star: RUN!
Tromell: Thank you!
Yuna however then yanked her hand out of Tromell’s and rushed back to the fighters and the Guardians…
Tromell: Lady Yuna!
The Guardians as well as the fighters face off with Al Bhed who then suddenly scatter away. Seconds later… Someone close to Rikku called down from the snowbank.
Brother: [Rikku!] Tuh’d ehdanvana un oui kad drec!
A Battle tank seconds later was seen lumbering forward…
Brother: Ouin bnaleuic sykel yht yauhc yna caymat!
Rikku: Oh, no!
Bubble Gem: Huh!
Frosty Ice Bubble: Rikku, What did he say?
Rikku: He’s gonna use an anti-magic field on us!
Thunderic Wonder: And we don’t have any weapons.
Angelic Bubble: I think this is gonna be our last curtain call. We’re in big big trouble…
Blossom: Trouble… Trouble how?
Sailor Zoey: Our elemental powers won’t work on the tank.
Sora: *Gulps* Where’s our dad?
Carly: I don’t know. Where do you think he is?
Sora: Is he still at the Travel Agency?
Carly: I think so.
Sora: Let’s get out of here… Let’s go back to where it’s safe. We’re gonna die. *Scared*
Carly: *Running off back to the Agency* Make Way!
Brother: Kad dras!
Miss Bliss: HERE IT COMES!!!
Within a Minute later…
The Fighters, Guardians and Yuna had to face it… They had to fight against the Machina…

Wakka: *Throwing the Blitzball at the Negator*
Kimahri: *Slicing the Negator with his spear*
The hovering Machina blew up and was taken out…
Rikku: *Looking at the Fighters* We can use Magic and Aeons now. Spencer, guys… blast at the Machina. Now. Take the shot!
Miss Bliss: Right.

Kimahri: *Using a Mega Potion on him and it sent healing to the entire party of fighters and himself as well*
Another Negator popped out and hovered in mid-air
Miss Bliss: Wakka… knock out that Negator…
Sir Love: When that thing is down… we’re gonna let Yuna summon an Aeon to weaken it a bit… then we’re use our finishers to end it..
A second later…
Wakka Knocks down the Negator and it opens up the shot for another wave of attacks…
Rikku: Yuna! You can use magic and call aeons now!
Yuna then Summoned for Ixion and had Ixion attack the Crawler…
It used Aerospark on the Crawler 4 times before attacking it 4 times…
Angelic Bubble: It’s done… the Crawler is weakened.
The Crawler however used Mana Beam and blasted at the Aeon. Taking it out. With the Aeon gone, they all had to get back on the field. The fighters stuck on the field and had to be prepared to fight.

Rikku Performed the Mix Overdrive and conjured up Electroshock.
It was the finishing blow and within seconds the Crawler started to short and spark with electricity and a charge. Before blowing up and Vanishing.
Miss Bliss: *Panting; trying to catch a breath* That was one battle that literally came close to us being dead.
Electrogal: Yeah! That was scary. I’ve never been so scared like that in my life.
Tromell: Lady Yuna! *Leading Yuna away*
But it was seconds later when…
Brother: [Rikku!] E femm damm Vydran!
Rikku: E ys dra kiynteyh uv [Yuna], oui caa? [Yuna] ec cyva! Fa femm kiynt ran! Cra ec cyva!
Brother: Oui tu drec ymuha, cecdan!
The Al Bhed left seconds later and was nowhere in sight…
Rikku: *laughing nervously* I told him I was a guardian. Well, guess I had to, really.
Spencer: I believed that you already were a Guardian, Rikku. You’ve been here and behind guarding Yuna up till now.
Wakka: How come you speak Al Bhed? Why?
Rikku: Because I’m Al Bhed. And that…was my brother.
Serena: *Shaking her head in dismay; knowing the truth was out* … *Sighs*
Wakka: *To the others* You knew?
Tidus and Lulu both nod in confirmation…
Wakka: Why didn’t you tell me?
Lulu: We knew you’d be upset.
Wakka: This is great. I can’t believe I’ve been travelling with an Al Bhed! A heathen!
Rikku: You’re wrong! We have nothing against Yevon.
Wakka: But you Al Bhed use the forbidden machina! You know what that means? Sin was born because people used machina!
Rikku: You got proof? Show me proof!
Wakka: It’s in Yevon’s teachings! *Folds arms* Not that you’d know!
Spencer: *Feeling steamed suddenly* That Does it! That TEARS IT! *Pissed; Walking over to Wakka and Kneeing him hard in the gut* You Racist son of a bitch. You’re calling Rikku Ignorant. In front of me. The nerve of you. you racist sack of shit. We have just about had it up to here with your racial spew…
Wakka: Why’re you standing up for this heathen? She’s an Al Bhed. It is because of her that Sin is here. Her and the Al Bhed used the forbidden Machina. Machina that is against the laws of the priesthood of Yevon.
Serena: *Looking at Wakka* It is not the Al Bhed who caused Sin to be born. It was a little of everyone. Guado… the Almighty supreme race… Yeah. They wish they were. The Ronso… The Al Bhed and yes… your race. HUMAN! IT isn’t all just Al Bhed. It’s the Ego of men who could not admit defeat. Don’t even think that it isn’t like that. IT IS!
Rikku: That’s not good enough! Yevon says this, Yevon says that. Can’t you think for yourself?
Sapphire: You are a real slime ball, Wakka. Treating Rikku like that. You are really low. There is nothing wrong with the Al Bhed. Nothing wrong with them at all.
Raven: It is all Yevon’s brainwashing beliefs that got you going on believing that the Al Bhed are the harbingers who brought Sin to Spira. Birthed him. We are all sick of it. Beyond sick of it.
Wakka: Well, then you tell me! Where did Sin come from, huh?
Rikku: I…I don’t know!
Wakka: Hmph! You bad-mouth Yevon and that’s all you can come up with?
Rikku: But…that doesn’t mean you should do whatever they say without thinking! Nothing will ever change that way!
Wakka: Nothing has to change!
Serena: Yeah… *Angry and wanting to kick Wakka in the head and lay on a real beat down* That’s right. Nothing has to change. You want to keep being a total racist and show hatred to the Al Bhed. You know what… I feel so sorry for Rikku. Her having to be putting up with this from you and having to be blamed for what her people might or might not have done. She is innocent. INNOCENT IN ALL THIS! The Guado are instigating the fact that the Al Bhed are heathens and should all die. It is so arrogant of everyone. treating the Al Bhed like lepers and making them all wish that they were never born. And if you want to hate the Al Bhed so damn much… then here is a little tid bit to shove down your arrogant throat. YOU GOD DAMN RACIST! You know Yuna… Don’t you?
Lulu: Serena! No! Don’t tell him. DON’T!
Serena: Lulu! We’re sorry. We really are. But Wakka’s pushed us too far. this bullshit of his tearing at the Al Bhed is gonna stop here and now. because it’s old. We’re done. *Holding her hand in front of her and swinging it back and forth in a swift motion* You get us? DONE! *Looking still at Wakka in anger and fury* Yuna is part Al Bhed. from her mother’s side. Her mother is the sister to Cid who is Rikku’s father. Rikku and Yuna are cousins by Blood. by BLOOD! You want to say something now? Go for it. because if you hate the Al Bhed and want to think of them as heathens… you might want to think of Yuna that way too. She’s got some Al Bhed in her. She was seen as like a sister to you. A Sister to you and Lulu. You and Lulu treated her with love and compassion. Seeing that she was part of your family in Besaid. Family. But with you thinking of the Al Bhed as scraps… It is like you think that you can judge anyone who won’t follow yevon. Well Just because the Al Bhed don’t follow all of Yevon… it doesn’t give you the right to tear Rikku down for the acts of what her people had done. The Al Bhed is misunderstood. But It seems that you’re too stupid and thickheaded to even bother give it a chance to get to know them. Understanding why they believe the way that they do.
Wakka: *Mortified; Pretending not to hear that part* …
Rikku: You want Sin to keep coming back? There might be a way to stop it, you know!
Wakka: Sin will be gone once we atone for our past mistakes!
Rikku: When? How?
Wakka: If we keep faith in Yevon’s teachings it will be gone one day!
Rikku: Why do I even bother?
Spencer: Rikku, Don’t even bother with Wakka. He’s proven that he would more rather be an asshole. and Wakka… Get this… you want to know why i am standing up for Rikku the way that i am? Well… Say something to this: Rikku and i are Boyfriend and girlfriend. We love each other. I love her. Does that make me a Heathen lover? Does it? Because if loving Rikku… who is an Al Bhed is like loving a Heathen… Then i got news for you. I am proud of it. Because if being a Yevonite means being a Racist… i would rather be a Heathen any day.
Raven: Wakka, You have no idea as to how pissed you are making us. You are a stone brained son of a bitch and just so you know… we told our mother Dinah. She knows about how you’re acting. She’s not happy one bit. She isn’t gonna say anything about it at this time… where as it is right now… she’s a Knight. She’s got to keep things PC and keep a neutral train of thought in her mind. But once all this is over… Sin is gone and we have done what we were all supposed to do… You can better believe that she is gonna deck you a good one. She’s gonna let you have it worse. A lot worse than us. We are only verbally giving you a lecture. A heated one. But she’ll give you not only that. But she will give you a beating.
Blossom: I think that a nice blast of Electricity shot right at your head will shock you. Place you down a few pegs.
Annie: We are for one thing… sick of your Racial spur. We’re beyond fed up with it.
Sapphire: *Looking at Wakka; noticing him wanting to say something* What?! You want to say something to finish it. Well Finish THIS! You stone-brained son of a bitch. *Lashing out and Punching Wakka in the face* To you from me and my sisters Raven and Serena, Pinky Lee! *Looking at Raven and Serena* Raven, Serena. grab your gear… let’s go. We’ll see you guys at the Temple. Sorry, everyone! *Furious*
Raven: Right. *Following her sister*
Serena: *Walking past Wakka and Letting off a Punch in the stomach* Racist Jerk!
Sapphire, Raven and Serena grabbed their gear and walked on. They were still gonna stick around for Yuna’s well being and see that she was safe… But at that time… they didn’t want to even look at Wakka. They wanted nothing to do with him. The 3 Thunder girls were so mad and livid that they were just itching to strike at any one and anything. Didn’t matter who it was.
The others stayed but hardly spoke around Wakka. They didn’t like Wakka one bit. They were truly fed up with him and who could blame them? They were hearing his racial attitude and his always blaming the Al Bhed for everything because Yevon believed it to be the right thing. seeing that it was all the Al Bhed’s doing for why Sin was around. Blossom and Zoey walked off and followed Sapphire, Raven and Serena. Even they didn’t want to look or be anywhere near Wakka…
Auron was by an abandoned Snowmobile…
Auron: *Calling over* Rikku!
Auron: Will this move?
Rikku: Yes! *Running over and suddenly fiddling with the snowmobile*
Wakka: We’re not using that, are we? Wait… Sir Auron isn’t an Al Bhed too, is he?
Tidus: Come on, Wakka…
Clint: Wakka, KNOCK IT OFF!
Tidus: I mean, getting angry just ’cause you found out Rikku’s an Al Bhed… You guys got along just fine till now, didn’t you?
Wakka: That’s different. I mean…
Tidus: Well, I don’t claim to know that much about Spira. And I probably know even less about the Al Bhed, but…I know Rikku’s a good person. She’s just Rikku!
Paul: *Looking at Wakka with a Aggravated expression; with discontent* Yeah. So do us all a favor and shut your racist mouth before someone puts a boot in your back side. Ramming it up so far that it’d take multiple Yevon docs to pull it out.
Lulu: Just think of this as an opportunity to learn more about the Al Bhed.
Wakka: Ha! *Storming off*
Crystal: *Under her breath; quietly* asshole.
Auron: Let him go. Give him time to think.
Spencer: Wakka can take all the time he wants. We’re never gonna forget how he was trying to treat Rikku like because she’s an Al Bhed. As far as i am concerned… Wakka can stay gone.
Rikku: I’m sorry.
Lulu: You’ve done nothing to apologize for.
Annie: Don’t you apologize, Rikku. You are not to blame. and if Yevon wants to crucify you… they can do it after getting through us. They’ll fail. We’re not moving from their path.
Tidus: All right! Let’s ride!
Rikku: You sure you know how to drive this?
Theodore: We never ridden one before… but it can’t be all that hard to use. It’s like driving a car… although none of us drive cars.
Sora and Carly come over from the side suddenly with Alvin, Avery and Arnold…
Sora: Sorry about running out like that. That Crawler just terrified us. We wanted to stay and help fight. But the Machina had us shook too bad. We couldn’t move. All we could think to do was to run.
Carly: What’s next?
Lulu: We head off to the Temple of Macalania.
Daria: Riding these things.
Alvin: Who can ride these things?
Avery: I can. Trained to ride certain things through the years of being a secret agent 00. I can ride these things.
Arnold: Me also. i could ride these things.
Tidus: Better than Kimahri does!
Amy: Let’s all get going. Some of us will have to ride by foot as there are only 4 of those snowmobiles.
It was onwards over to the Temple. But they however had a little ways left to get there. It on the other hand gave them all time to think about the blowout that just took off and flew. It was a heated blow-out. Wakka was probably sulking and in fury about being told to back off from the Al Bhed. But the fighters didn’t care. They didn’t care one bit at that time. They were done with being sympathetic to Wakka for what happened to his brother and that he hated the Al Bhed for what went on with his brother and for his brother using a Al Bhed Machina. They were sick and fed up. Sapphire and her sisters were up ahead and to the side. They saw Wakka walking close by and heard what he was saying. Raven came close to wanting to snap off and knock him into that little chasm. She wanted to do it. But now that the others were close by and riding on Snow Mobiles. Knowing that they were gonna be near and were gonna be in sight of the others… She didn’t bother. But Serena was looking towards finding their mother and finding a way to get out of Spira. They wanted nothing to do with Wakka. That’s how they felt at that moment. But they also had to worry about Yuna’s decision towards going along with Seymour’s proposal, Planning to come with a negotiation with Seymour in return of agreeing to marry. Raven’s infatuation still in question revolving Lord Seymour. Then the part where they would have to reach a point where they’d come with no alternative choice but to fight. But first… It was the snowmobile ride over to the opening leading to the entrance of the Macalania temple. Would there be a chance of Wakka and the Rhapsody fighters trying to reconcile for what happened back on the lake? Will there be another statement of another race of people who don’t like the Al Bhed? Who would it be? At the entrance leading to the Temple… Would there be a shake up of what’s to happen from then on till the end of the line is reached in the Journey? Find out in the next chapter of the Adventures of the Rhapsody Girls Z! as the Saga continues…
It’s a time to think… a time to reflect… a time to decide… a move to reconciliation… a move to possibly say goodbye to the Guardians and part ways. The fighters and Guardians take a trip and go temple deep to the entrance of the Macalania Temple in… Go Macalania Temple Deep. Annie, Amy and Sapphire lead the way.
