Chapter 7: The Supreme Elite
The four boys were walking out of the cell behind Belle and the inhabitants of the castle. They were heading to the West Wing of the castle where the Beast is currently holed up. Polemistis then pauses for a second.
"Oh hey!" he said "I just remembered something." The three others turned around. "I got this guilt bangle here." Polemistis showed them the device. "Master Gula gave it to me personally just before I finished my training under him. It's supposed to collect dark energy from the enemies we defeat."
"I got one too," Kyrios said. "In fact, I believe the Foretellers handed them out to everyone they have recruited."
"I believe they wanted us to use it to help wear down the darkness by stealing the dark energy," Kidemonas said.
"There is just one thing though," Aiton said. "What happens to the dark energy we collect? Where does it go?" This made them a bit nervous for they did not know what happens to dark power that they collect. If they aren't using it, as forbidden by the Foretellers, what happens to it?
A dozen years ago...
The Master was speaking to Luxu in the clock tower alone. He already told him what his role is and what he needed to bring along to execute the role. Luxu was about to leave the Master when he was called back.
"Hold up there Speedy Gonzalez," the Master said "there is something that you don't know that you need to know."
"Oh, what is it master?" Luxu asked. The Master sat back down at the desk and merely looked at the closed Book of Prophecies. Luxu was rather surprised the Master was acting so... serious... and... contemplative. It was very uncharacteristic of him.
"I didn't tell the others about this, but wrote it in their copies," the Master said. "I saw four boys rise up and become stronger than everyone else. None of them were from the same union, but they became more than friends, but brothers. These boys will meet their dark matches. These counterparts will not be of light." The Master then turned his head just enough to look at Luxu. Luxu gasped a little at hearing this.
"You will meet them and they will help push things forward," the Master continued. "These four boys from the dark will come across their counterparts of the light and they will clash at times, but in the end, they will reunite under one heart. So, you will know who they are when you see them." The Master then flipped a mood switch.
"Make sure you have nice manners," the Master said. "Don't need to make them angry now would you?"
"Yes master," Luxu replied. He was about to turn and go, but the Master spoke up again.
"Uh, one more thing," the Master said. Luxu turned around again. "Have a fun time! No just kidding. Seriously though, there is one thing I want you to remember: what goes around, comes around."
"But why?" Luxu asked.
"Your descendant is why," the Master replied. He then walked up to Luxu and whispered into his ear. Luxu gasped as the Master finished. He then nodded, took his things and left.
A dozen years later...
Darkness floated around in the wasteland surrounding Daybreak Town. It was in four large masses and was floating around smoothly. Then, the masses began to congeal separately and form four males. They have their arms out and palms up as they are formed. Their faces looking up toward the sky as they formed from the darkness. Once their formation is complete, they lower their faces and their arms. Their eyes remained closed for a while and then they opened them. Their eyes were gold and their expression one of determination. They then walk into the wasteland.
Luxu was in the wasteland outside of Daybreak Town watching from afar. He was was doing what the master told him to do and so he waited for the time to come for action. In order for him to do so, he was far away from the town so he couldn't do anything that might blow the operation. Just then, he heard footsteps behind him getting closer. He turns around and sees four individuals with black clothing, black hair, and gold eyes.
"Luxu?" one asked. Luxu merely nodded.
"We have been looking for you," another one of them said.
"You're the ones the Master told me about," Luxu asked.
"We also have to formally introduce ourselves to our counterparts," the one that greeted Luxu said.
The four boys along with Belle and the castle servants went to the West Wing and found the Beast there with a rose in a bell jar. The Beast was looking at the rose and bowed his head and closed his eyes in sorrow. He then heard the boys, Belle, and castle residents come in and turned to face them.
"Go away! You are not welcome here!" the Beast shouted.
"These boys mean no harm," Belle said. "They were here destroying the monsters." The Beast snarled and turned back to the rose.
"They are after the rose," he said. "If they destroy that, then..." He couldn't finish his thought. It caused him too much pain. Belle went up to him and put herself in his embrace.
"They can help," she said. "I know they can help."
"We all can, right?" Polemistis said and his friends and the castle inhabitants all agreed. The Beast looked at peace now and smiled.
"Thank you," he said. And so the boys and castle inhabitants split up taking different rooms and different wings of the castle. Polemistis searched the East Wing of the entire castle, Kyrios the West Wing of the entire castle, Kidemonas the Ballroom and Foyer, and Aiton the outside courtyard and the bridge. Every room was searched and every winged checked for any heartless that may be hiding. Indeed, there were many heartless around and they were causing trouble as Beast lamented they were. The boys helped destroy them and the castle inhabitants beat them in to weaken them. Even the Beast got involved and fought the heartless as well destroying them too. The search and seizure took a while because there were so many of them. The outside had heartless as well for the four boys saw a heartless there earlier. Now they were roaming all about the courtyard and bridge. It took about twenty minutes to clean up the outside while the inside took about forty five since there were so many rooms and there were large rooms like the library, foyer, and ballroom.
Once the job was done, everyone gathered back into the Foyer and everyone thanked the boys.
"Thank you so much for your help," Belle said.
"Thanks to you four, the rose is safe," the Beast followed.
"Absolutely," Aiton said.
"Glad we could help," Kidemonas said. All of the castle residents then went to their quarters leaving the four boys alone in the foyer.
"Why don't we say we head home?" Kyrios asked. Polemistis, Aiton, and Kidemonas nodded and they opened a light corridor and left the castle and went back to Daybreak Town.
In Daybreak Town's Fountain Square, an unusually large Darkside was standing before a crowd of Keyblade wielders. They were all of different unions, but apparently were in the wrong place at the wrong time. This Darkside was stronger than usual and the Keyblade wielders were struggling even though with them combining their forces, they would be stronger. In this case, that is not so and they are panting while the Darkside appears to be preparing another attack.
"Aw c'mon," one wielder complained "can't this give us a break?" The Darkside was about to attack when a bright light came down between the heartless and the crowd. Wielders in the crowd gasped at who they were seeing.
"Hey, that's Polemistis!" one said.
"No way! Is that Aiton?" another asked.
"Awesome! Kidemonas is here!" a third said.
"That's Kyrios! Cool!" a fourth said. It popcorned between the crowd some more before the four boys started to attack the heartless. They all used their special abilities. Kyrios used his power of the elements, Aiton unleashed and unbound his power onto the heartless and seek out its weak spot (he also was able to seek out darkness from unlikely sources since he was young and it helped Keyblade wielders very much), Kidemonas used his power of light to break through, and Polemistis used his power of judgment to punish the creature. They used all kinds of attacks and spells they knew in the book and even used some combinations and attacks and spells the average Union member did not know. The Keyblade wielders merely stood with keys in hand and mumbled to each other as they watched the fight go on.
The four boys landed next to each other in a ninja-like stance and looked up at the creature. It was now starting to through a fit and was about to fire darkness toward everyone.
"Ready guys?!" Polemistis asked.
"Oh yeah!" they replied and they pointed their Keyblades to the sky and absorbed light energy. They had white auras form around themselves and they began to float above the crowd up to the neck level of the Darkside. Then, side by side, they pointed their Keyblades at the heartless.
"LIGHT!" they screamed and a large white orb formed in front of them. The boys thrusted their Keyblades forward and fired the massive orb toward the creatures. Once it hit the heartless, a huge explosion ensued creating a blinding light and strong wind the wielders had to cover their faces from. A few seconds felt like hours and the explosion finally died down with the Darkside no longer in front of them. The crowd uncovered their faces with shock written on them. What power do these guys have! The four guys then floated down and the auras disappeared. They unsummoned their Keyblades and turned to face the crowd. There was silence for a few seconds before they all erupted in cheer and applause.
"Wow! That was awesome!"
"You guys are strong!"
"Man! It's like you guys are like elites!"
"You're the supreme type of Keyblade wielder alright!"
"Hey! I got it!" a male Keyblade wielder with green hair, blue eyes, tan clothes, and black gloves said. "Why don't we call the Supreme Elite?!"
"Yeah! They're the Supreme Elite!" a female Keyblade wielder followed.
"All hail the Supreme Elite!" someone else shouted. They all started chanting these five words over and over again. The boys were stunned and wanted to tell them not to, but were given nary a chance. They shrugged their shoulders and looked at each other.
"Well then, I guess we are the Supreme Elite," Polemistis said as the crowd chanted "all hail the Supreme Elite" over and over. From then on, they considered themselves by that title without ever acting superior to the others. From then on, many Keyblade wielders from all the unions came to love them. They called these boys what they believe they truly are: the Supreme Elite.
