Hearing Apprentice's answer, the members had absolutely nothing to say to that. She was still looking down at her hands, completely untouched. It was as if she had never dug them into the gelatinous wall. After responding Ivan's question, she continued to gaze at he hands with a nearly permanent dumbfounded look on her face. I just created the world. What the firetruck?
Among the throng, a silver head fought its way through. When it made its way to the front, Kinode revealed himself in KH3D Riku form. His turquoise eyes were bright, almost as if he had idea. "Apprentice, do it again."
She snapped awake. "What?"
"Do it again."
She looked at him in confusion. "But why? What good would do?"
He smiled, as if inviting danger with that gesture alone. "Does it matter?"
She shook her head numbly and turned towards the wall. She plunged her hands inside the wall, reveling its coolness and how it melded around her fingers and against her palms. With an effort, she pulled herself back to reality or rather to the realm where reality hardly took shape.
"Okay," she enunciated with extreme effort. "What world do you want to see?"
"Destiny Islands," a bald eagle answered her.
"Hawk?" Apprentice gaped, recognizing the member. Hawk saluted her with an inclination of its white head and rose those majestic wings.
Forehead burrowed, Apprentice grasped the strings of her imagination first recalling the enormous cumulus filling the midday sky and golden sunshine cloaking the tree and sand covered islands. As she did so, it was as if particles of that sand itself drew together to shape the scenery. Homes constructed themselves, shadows were disappearing to reveal the school and churning waters soaked the docks and boats. Apprentice sought the paopu trees and an appetite formed as soon as she laid eyes on the fruit.
Now the only thing that was missing was Sora, Kairi and Riku. And with a pang of sadness and actual heartbreak, she remembered they weren't real. The thought was enough to make her eyes water with unshed tears.
"What about Twilight Town!?" asked Space Cowboy and the hooded figure Apprentice identified as Keyblade King 12.
Apprentice released her hold of Destiny Islands, groaning at the sheer effort. "Give me a minute."
Red-gold sunlight filtered through the wall and Apprentice nearly screamed. Why is this as hard as firetruck?
Her mental concentration began to slowly deteriorate. No, no, no.
She had to keep going. In her brain, she was building the Clock Tower, brick by brick. Beyond reach, was Roxas, Xion, Axel and Naminé eating sea salt ice cream together. She imagined how they would look in the blood red sunlight and before she could do anymore, Apprentice's concentration snapped. Letting out a cry of pain, she fell to her knees. Yet her hands were still wrist deep in the wall. The pain was unbearable.
She was distantly aware of some of the members running towards her. Instantly a light flickered inside her.
"KINODE!" she screamed.
"Wh-what?" he was unaccustomed to hearing such a harsh tone from her.
He too stood as straight as a board when his name was called.
"Summon Way to Dawn and Oblivion before I puke!"
"Why?" The both of them looked incredibly confused.
"Because any moment now I will try to create the new Radiant Garden and I want you guys to rip this wall apart with your goddamn Keyblades. So. Help. Me. God."
The both of them looked at each other uneasily before adopting the battle stance of both Riku and Roxas.
Letting out an ear-wrenching moan, Apprentice let the dark colours of the new Radiant Garden come to mind. Water fountains began to stream, the outer walls circulated the groups of newly restored houses and the town appeared amidst a fog. Up rose the remnants of a once-beautiful castle, now a twisted bastion, whom the city revolved around. Despite Apprentice's diminishing strength, seeing it form in front of her was like coming home. She resisted the urge to cry.
Two flashes of light and darkness indicated that Kinode and Golden had summoned their Keyblades. If Apprentice wasn't straining to stay conscious, she'd most likely be in awe at seeing the real thing. She waited a heartbeat before hollering, "NOW!"
Lunging forward, the both of them struck the wall. The gelatinous mass writhed and convulsed around the blades, unable to decide whether to suck the obstructions in or to reject them. In a moment of perfect synchronicity, Kinode and Golden performed two large strokes, slicing two large slits into the wall. At once, light, darkness, colours and the abstract came spilling out. They melded together, pasting over the mountainside, replace the terrain with an entirely new one.
The wall vanished, leaving Apprentice's hands bare. Her strength completely sapped, she fell to the ground. It wasn't long after that she felt two pairs of hands haul her up and she was deposited in someone's lap.
That someone brushed aside black bangs, murmuring to her, "Sweat soaked girls are not very kawaii."
"Koko?" Apprentice asked in a weak voice. The tip of a finger touched her forehead and she immediately felt energy running through her veins. Apprentice sat up, feeling rejuvenated. She looked Koko in the eye and said with utter honesty, "I have overwhelming urge to make out with you."
Koko simply smiled, looking as lovely as ever. "Feel free to do so if you like."
Flushing Apprentice shook her head, declining politely. Helping her up, Koko turned to Daniel and said, "I think we discovered four different super powers today, Danne."
DChiuch surveyed Apprentice, Koko, Kinode and Golden with unreadable eyes. "It seems we have."
"So does that mean I have all of Inori's abilities?" asked Kaiso.
"Don't forget the power of a succubus," interjected Apprentice.
Kaiso looked down at herself and grabbed two handfuls of her breasts. Immediately, all the male members and a few females one looked instantly uncomfortable as if trying to restrain themselves from doing a certain something.
"Good job Kaiso. You just aroused over half of KH13."
Kaiso looked at her suggestively, still holding both of her boobs. "Including you?"
Apprentice's flush turned into a full scale blush of bright scarlet. Kaiso's triumphant grin was enough to make her burn with embarrassment.
While the site spent most of the time exploring Radiant Garden and marveling at how similar it looked to its Kingdom Hearts II version, Apprentice was distracted by the site of Aqua7KH skipping in her direction. Slinging an arm around her neck, Aqua whispered into Apprentice's ear, "Say if I grab my boobs will you get aroused for me too?"
Apprentice's answering response was shoving Aqua into the nearest fountain.
