It burns, the searing pain sends you reeling back. The pain is so intense, but you can't stop, you look over a Molly, she's crying, scared of what will happen to you. The boy rushes at you, ready to finish things.without looking up you stop his blade. You lunge upward, thrusting to back him away, the two of you clash a few times before a sift squish, your blade pierced his heart, he drops dead at your feet.
Now Locke steps up, you reach down, grabbing they're Devil's Fang, holding it back hand just as the boy did. Locke runs at you, his own Angel Blade at the ready. "Not this time..." you mutter. You swing your left arm, Locke raises his dagger to block, and you're trick works. You twist your arm so the it slides past his dagger, and slug him in his hooded face, as he's reeling from you punch you slash with your right hand, "Let's get a look at that pretty little face of yours!" You slash again, trying to get his face, but he dodged just in time, and instead you cut the side of his hood off. You see his face and your shocked.
Its you. His face looks exactly like yours only aged a few years, "Undet the alias of 'Locke' you became my partner," the hooded lady says, your attention on her, the fight apparently over, she removes her hood, letting down a curtain of coppery red hair. Her faces looks like Molly's, and just like Locke, its only difference was that it was aged a few years. "We came back to when I first got my powers to make sure the course of events does not change," she continues, "we looked exactly the same way when we were told. Yes, Locke and I are you and most from the future,"

You start to feel angry. You think of everything these two have done to you. How they--apparently your future selves--allowed the boy to come after Molly and hurt her. That couldn’t be you. How could you ever let such a thing happen? Why would “Molly” allow her younger self to be injured by that boy and his Devil’s Fang? Why would they team up with such a twisted person? What are you and Molly destined to become?
You’re shaking with rage and fear at the same time and you shut your eyes, wishing for all of this to go away. Overwhelmed as you are, the only words you’re able to choke out are, “I-I don’t understand.”

You panic, and instead of dodging, you jerk your body to the side. The Angel Blade sinks into your left shoulder, pain is rippling through your body, you jump back, Locke has a smirk on his face, " Missed your heart by that much," he says, his voice is ominously the same is yours. "Heart? Missed? You can't kill me! If I die you will too!" You scream, even though you know it hardly matters, "Normally yes,I would, but that's to this trinket," he reaches into the collar of his shirtand pulls out a small medallion, "its called a time shield, and when I wear it whilst not in my own time, the thing that happen to the past me don't..." he streaches his collar to reveal his left shoulder, "...happen to me. I've seen wounds like that, trust me when I tell you, that'll leave a nasty scar," he says.

You run in a wide arc around the area where the five of you had been standing minutes ago. “Get back here, you coward!” Locke yells. It’s weird hearing your own voice reprimanding you like that--almost as if it’s inside your head. You do want to fight him, so badly, to get back at him for putting you and Molly in this situation, but at this rate, you know you’ll lose. You are almost there...
You look the other way. Partially because you don’t want them to know what you’re planning, or how they’ll react, but also because you can’t bear to look her in the face. It’s different, to be sure, but it’s still Molly’s face. At just the right moment, you leap into the air, flip over, and land right behind the woman, the “future Molly,” crossing your two blades over her throat. The woman is just a little taller than the Molly you know--almost as tall as you. She gives a startled cry. Her red hair brushes against your face. You try to block it all out. Of course, this is something you would never do if you weren’t in such a situation. The fact that you’re threatening Molly, mentally twisted though she now is, makes you feel like a monster--like Locke, the future you, who’s standing a few feet away. But you’re doing this in the hopes of saving yourself from becoming him, and of saving Molly from becoming the woman whose life you’re now threatening.
It’s hard for you to gauge Locke’s reaction, or the woman’s (beyond being startled) for that matter, but you take the chance anyway. “Give me some answers! Why did you end up like this? Tell me everything I want to know, or I swear I’ll kill her!” You can’t believe the words you’ve just said, but you try to look like you do.
Locke seems to consider this, though you can’t tell exactly for what reason. Then he says, “After Krista--or, Molly, as you currently know her--had her powers unleashed, I somehow survived. We both felt liberated and powerful. But we were told our memories of that moment when Molly was transformed were fake. We’re not actually you from the future, per se, but from the possibility of what the future holds for you. And the only way for us to go on existing is to change the course of events involving you and Molly.”
So they were only possibilities? You and Molly may be able to avoid this fate after all. “And who told you this?” you demand.
“Ezekiel. The brother of Damien, the boy you just killed,” he answers, looking over at the body of the boy who had hurt Molly. "And, frankly, I don't think Ezekiel will be very happy with you when he finds out."

Locke jumps in front of you, faster than you thought possible, and kicks you aside, knocking your Angel Blade from your grip. You get up quickly, bit eyes closed, grimacing in pain. You hear the sound of a blade piercing flesh, you believe yourself dead when you open your eyes to see someone in front of you. Justin. He appeared out of no where, and intercepted Locke's attack, his Angel Blade sticking out of his stomach, not fatal, but still serious enough to incapacitate him, "...just can't...stay on my feet...can I...?" He says weakly, he drops to the ground get again, barely able to stay up on his hands and knees, "The...gummi ship...its...fixed...Go get your girl outta here..." he says before collapsing.

You help her up, and as both of you start running, Molly says, “Wait! We can’t leave Justin behind!”
You agree with her. Though he’s been a jerk to you most of the time, he still helped save the two of you--that is, if you’re able to reach the Gummi Ship in time. But you see no way to help him and run from Locke at the same time. “Molly, we have to!” you say. “There’s no time!” With that, you’re running again.
Before long, you and Molly arrive at the Gummi Ship and get inside, and you sit in the pilot’s seat. “Wait...I don’t know how to work this thing!” Molly is just as clueless as you. Now you’re panicked, not knowing how far behind Locke might be. You hear a noise and ready your daggers, only to see Justin climbing into the ship.
“You guys look like you could use some help.”
You’re surprised and relieved to see him. “How did you...?”
“Curaga, baby. It works wonders,” Justin says with a grin. “Mind if I take that seat?” Though he seems happy to be alive, he still looks a little afraid, like he wants to get out of this place--fast.
While getting out of the pilot’s seat, you ask, “Where are Locke and Krista?”

Just as your starting to relax, the gummi ship suddenly stops with a forceful lurch, it looks like its having a hard time staying in the air, "I thought you fixed it?" You yell,am alarm had started to blare deafening everyone, "I did!" Justin yells back. "Look! On the back of the ship!" Molly points out, what looks like a huge demon hand is grasping the back of the gummi ship, "Let me out, I'll cut the thing off," you say, readying your daggers, but Justin shakes his head.
He's about to say something when Molly shrieks in horror, the two of you look up and see why, a second demon hand is raised above the ship. It drops down with a frightening speed swatting the gummi ship out if the air like a fly. The ship lay in ruins on the shore, you look up from the wet sand to see another boy, his hair a shining emerald green, his bangs cover one of his pale green eyes. The large demon hands came from him, both appeared to sprout from his right hand, they twisted and writhed around as they receded, shrinking and the features slowly turning back into human hands. The green haired boy came forward, wearing a dark green shirt under a night black blazer, he had the appearance of a business man, "My name is Ezekiel, and you must be the one who killed my brother. Stand up, you and I ate going to settle things," he speech is very proper, adding to his preppy appearance. He started to pull out his weapon

“So, you really like the color green, huh?” Justin says with slight sarcasm, as if he doesn’t even realize his words might be deadly to all of you. You resist the urge to elbow him hard in the side.
“Yes,” Ezekiel replies smugly. He whips the chain backward and lashes it toward Justin, who dodges just in time. The chain wraps around a tree, and the tree starts burning, as if from an electric current.
The color drains from all of your faces. “Wh-what is that thing?” Justin asks in fascinated horror.
“It’s called a Jupiter Catena. Impressed? I can see why--I’m rather fond of it myself,” he says as he yanks the weapon back toward him. He looks at you, his expression very confident and...friendly in a twisted sort of way. “So, shall we?”
You hide your fear, poising yourself with blades in hand. “You’re only going to end up like your brother!”
“Oh, I wouldn’t have said that if I were you,” Ezekiel says, almost like a parent giving advice to his child.
Justin comes up beside you with his Keyblade, concealing his own fear as well. “No way am I letting you have all the fun!” he says to you while keeping his eyes on Ezekiel.
Though Justin can be a total idiot sometimes, you’re willing to accept all the help you can get. You both ready yourselves. Ezekiel’s slightly amused look is far more intimidating than any enraged or murderous expression you’ve ever seen.

Locke and Krista are preoccupied with Molly, who at the moment is trapped in a sort of transparent bubble, most likely Krista's doing. She pounded on the inside of the bubble wall, sending ripples along the bubble where she hit it. "Let's begin, could you please untie the one who killed Damien," Locke says, Ezekiel does add much, but not before using the chain tying you up to toss you in front of them, "You know he's you from the past, you should know his make," Ezekiel points out, but Locke shakes his head, "It's been too long since I've even heard it, that name, whatever it may be, means nothing to me now, not even you, Krista, can remember what this boy was called before he became me," he tosses you your Angel Blade, and have the Devil's Fang to Ezekiel, "Perhaps you'd like to keep this, to remember your brother," Locke suggests. Ezekiel takes it, bit then hands it to you, "My brother is dead, keeping his dagger won't change that," he looks away from you, "you're going to need that..." he says trailing off.

"Oh, that's how you spell it!" she exclaimed. "I'm off to go spread my knowledge to the masses!"
Sorababy skipped all the way to the park, stood in the middle of the fountain, extended her arms and shouted.
"CITIZENS OF AMERICA! WHISPER HAS AN 'H!'"
