"Be a good girl now, Vanille," a woman in her mid-twenties gently uttered, kneeling down to match her daughter's height. "Don't give Aunt Lightning any trouble, got it?"
"Okay, mummy!" a cheerful girl not older than seven with bright red hair tied back in curled pigtails responded. She flashed her mother a huge smile, striking green eyes sparkling with innocence.
Vanille's mother who goes by the name Oerba Yun Fang patted the young girl'
Divisions of Time--chapter 14-------------Promoted to Guardian
About half a second after Noel finished taunting him, Caius threw himself forward and put the full weight of his body behind the gesture. Serah ducked in and helped Noel block the blow, but even still they toppled back. Caius used only one hand, the other simply as leverage. While his eyes were fierce, he didn't look concerned, while both Serah and Noel strained under his power, crouching on the deck.
"Both of you are beginning to annoy me," he hissed.
Noel dug in and leaned forward. "Give up, Caius! Enough's enough!"
The darkhaired man hesitated, feinted a little, and managed to knock them both back with a snap of his arm. The two travelers stumbled, but righted themselves.
"You still don't know the truth, Serah." Caius spoke directly to her this time, ignoring Noel, violet eyes fixed on her blue ones. "You and Yeul are the same. Each change in the timeline seeps at your life. Even if you build the future you long for, you will no
Like Yesterday's DreamKain x Lightning | Like Yesterday's Dream
"Hey, purple wonder."
For the past ten minutes, it'd been extremely peaceful, really, with a nice wind blowing off the mesa and the smell of the land below hanging thick in the air. For ten minutes, more than he was usually given in this arena of endless battle, he could get his thoughts organized again. There was no telling just how long it would be before the next battle was called and he was rotated in. That was his lot in life.
Kain just wanted peace and quiet, but it looked about to be interrupted.
"Lightning," was his greeting, glancing over his shoulder at the woman. She looked tired, eyes soggy with sleep.
As she drew closer, rubbing her left eye with the heel of her palm, he wondered about the name. "Purple wonder"? It wasn't the most creative name he'd been called, but it seemed oddly good-natured coming from this woman. He seemed to have developed a reputation within this cycle already, though it had just began b
Divisions of Time--Chapter 7The Faeryl
Just as she brought the sword up, the beast dove at her and knocked her off her feet, sending her tumbling down into the valley below.
Caius called her name; she used her momentum to flip over onto her feet, quickly standing. The blade came up again as the faeryl landed on the ground, large yellow eyes boring into her. Quickly, she assessed the creature and realized she had no idea what to do. Its protective outer shell was chinked, but she wasn't sure she was fast enough to be able to take advantage of that. Its eyes were mostly unprotected, but reaching them was a problem. Underlining all this was the steady throb of her knee.
"Okay then." The blade shivered in her grip; she quickly took some weight off her knee. The landing had made it worse, but it was still bearable. "So, what? What do I do?"
She heard Caius land a few feet to her right in a crouch, but he didn't stand up from it, instead bringing his spear out and holding it with both hands. The blade on the end
Divisions of Time - Chapter 2-----------Prewar Pulse
It was a warm, sunny, cheerful day in Academia 400 AF, and Serah was enjoying herself.
The metropolis hadn't much in the way of land area, but what it lacked in acreage it made up for in height: tall, gleaming skyscrapers all curves and flowing lines, like an art deco museum come to life, with the central building of the Academy Headquarters dominating the northern skyline. Between the spires of the headquarters, if you stood just right, was visible the unfinished shell of the new Cocoon. It was a very normal sight; few passerby gave it much of a glance. Only Mog, the white-furred moogle companion of theirs, turned any heads, and even those were fairly brief moments of interest.
It's amazing how much better one feels after a night of uninterrupted sleep and a dash of summer rain the following morning. The sky had been washed clean to shine a brilliant blue, without clouds to break it up. The air smelled like wet asphalt and moist earth. Even the fu
