Kosuke snapped out of thought as Henoke mentioned the race, and was caught off-guard as he bolted back, jumping from trampoline to trampoline.
"Hey! I didn't even give a head start!" Kosuke shouted, amused, "Cheater!" "Well, it's your fault for provoking him like that..." Necro mentioned aloud. "Shut it, you."
Necro simply chuckled, and Kosuke tried to play catch-up with Henoke. He tried to keep up with his speed, but even Kosuke knew Henoke had a different type of strength. Knowing that, he smirked, trying to see if he could lower him to a similar level.
He saw a chance, as they both neared the glimmer at the top. Kosuke made an extra effort to have a bit more height, catching up to Henoke as he neared the glimmer. He grabbed Henoke by his bandana, and dragged him towards him, trying to not choke him as he did.
"I thought you'd be the type of guy to play it fair" Kosuke said, with a mix of bitterness and amusement, "But seems like I was mistaken... Wha!"
Kosuke hadn't noticed how close they were to the glimmer, and, as he'd dragged Henoke towards him, and, without any second to move about, they both fell to the platform, where the glimmer was.
Henoke felt the world shift as he was yanked back by Kosuke, yelling out in surprise as the two crashed onto the platform with a loud thud! Dazed, the key bearer lay on the ground face first, his bandana luckily cushioning his face from the fall. Rolling onto his back, Henoke burst out in laughter as he heard the swordsman groan next to him. "Ow...Okay, that was my bad..." It seemed that his partner was just as dazed as he was after the landing. Henoke took a moment to simply stare up at the starry night sky, allowing his senses to return to him rather than try and fight it.
Sitting up, he rubbed the back of his head with a hand, his spiky orange hair vibrant against the night. Looking over his shoulder, Henoke saw the glimmering object the two had raced towards. Sitting up a little slowly, dusting himself off and shaking his head a bit, the teen regained his balance. Standing up straight and turning on his heels, he shouted to Kosuke: "Hey! Get up! We made it!" Excitement coerced through him as he took in the glimmering object.

Kosuke groaned as he stood up, soothing the back of his neck. That was one hell of a fall... But it didn't seem like Henoke cared about it. He was more interested in what the strage glimmer was. It looked like it could be grabbed... But when he tried to do that, it just went right through him.
"What the hell...?" he muttered aloud, shocked. "Huh... I can't tell what it is, even now..." Necro said, unsure. "Then... what? Do we chance it?" Kosuke asked, confused. "Hmm... I'd say no, but..." the dragon looked at Henoke, "Do you? For all we know, it could be a Keyhole. I'm not so sure, but... Then again, I've never seen one."
The glimmer came from what looked to be a crack, or gap, in between nothing. It wasn't there physically. That had already been proven when Kosuke tried to grab it. But then, what was it? It didn't look like a Keyhole, either, without its characteristic shape. There was a strange light coming from it, but neither Kosuke or Necro knew what it was about.
"So..." Kosuke looked at the Keyblade Wielder, "Ever... Seen one of these before? I sure haven't. And I'm telling you now, I'm more than sure that I've never seen them. Like..." he gave up, and let out a sigh, "Even before losing my memory. Don't ask why, I just feel like it's that way." "Hmm..." Necro looked unsure, "I really don't know anything anymore... I'm just as confused..."
Henoke gaped at the glimmering object before the trio, though none of them seemed to know exactly what it was they were seeing. For a moment, the Keyblade wielder stood stunned, waiting for something to happen. "What the hell...?" Kosuke's voice rang out from behind him, though Henoke couldn't peel his gold-brown eyes from the object. As Necro and the swordsman began to talk amongst themselves, the teen took a hesitant step towards it. It almost looked like it was a crack...a gap in the world itself? It doesn't look like it's leading to anything. He reached a hand out towards it, stopping as Kosuke's voice rang out once more.
"So, ever...seen one of these before? I sure haven't." It seemed that neither Kosuke or Necro had any clue as to what this odd entity was either. Looking over his shoulder after a moment, he shook his head before turning to face the two. "No. Normally, if it is a keyhole, my Keyblade will come out on its own and a bright light will appear." It definitely didn't look like a keyhole, either. All of them that Henoke had seen, even ones transformed from objects, ended up looking like a normal keyhole in shape. This thing was just...a wound on the world.
Curious, the teen turned back to face it, wondering aloud: "I wonder what it is...?" Earlier it had seemed to pass through his hand, rather than allowing him to interact with it at all. "Well, it's worth a shot." Though normally acting on its own for moments like this, Henoke decided it was best to summon the Keyblade. Taking a step back, the large steel grey blade emerged from a ray of light in the teen's right hand. Hoisting it in front of him with both hands, Henoke aimed the tip of the long blade directly towards the shimmering gap.
He closed his eyes and focused his heart, waiting to see if something would happen. Would the Keyblade respond to...whatever this was?
Post by therunawaygirl on Mar 27, 2019 20:11:15 GMT -5
Kosuke and Necro both looked at Henoke, as he summoned his Keyblade and pointed at... whatever it was in front of them. There was a stronger, quick glimmer coming out of the gap, and a low growl was heard nearby. Kosuke and Necro both stood on guard, hearing something lurking around.
A pair of deep purple eyes soon opened inside the gap, and a nine-tailed fox jumped to Henoke's encounter. Kosuke had noticed that he had his eyes closed, and he pulled him back towards him. That made him lose balance, and he dragged Henoke with him all the way down to the trampoline below them. Kosuke put himself under Henoke, as means to protect him from any damage, while not caring for his own. That was Necro's worry.
"You okay, Henoke?!" Kosuke asked, as their fall was mitigated by the trampoline, "You're not hurt, are you?" "What was that?!" Necro asked, looking up. "Whatever it was, it was not happy to see us."
The nine-tailed fox loomed from the platform, and then jumped down to their encounter. Kosuke put Henoke besides him, and grabbed his blade and its sheath.
"Looks like we won't get out of this one unscathed..." he said, bitterly, "And here I thought we'd have things go smoothly... Guess I was wrong." "Henoke, have you ever fought a Spirit?" Necro asked the Keyblade Wielder, "If not, then... Let me lend you a little bit of help. This is a fight we all can fight in, so heads up!"
Henoke focused with all his heart as he lifted the Keyblade in front of him. Waiting for something to happen, he allowed himself to be consumed in the silence as he held his breath. "Grrrrrrr..." A low growl erupted through the night as suddenly Henoke felt a hand grab the back of his jacket, pulling him backwards as he shouted out in surprise. His gold-brown eyes opened and immediately widened as he immediately witnessed the large white nine-tailed fox that leaped forward from the gap. Lifting the Keyblade in reflex, Henoke shouted out again in surprise as suddenly him and Kosuke were plummeting back towards the ground.
"Ahhhhhh!!!" The key bearer shouted out as he was moved above Kosuke, colliding with the swordsman on the trampoline as the two were bounced heavily but safely. It was an odd sensation, free falling, one Henoke wasn't used to. Dazed and confused, he heard Kosuke's voice very faintly, an echo in the distance. "You okay, Henoke?! You're not hurt, are you?" The voice was quiet at first, though growing in volume as the key bearer sat up on the ground, holding his head with his free left hand. His hefty Keyblade was still firmly gripped in the right. "Ugh...wha-what happened...?" It seemed he was rather dazed as Necro and Kosuke wondered about what the fox creature was.
The teen came back to his senses as the large nine-tailed fox landed near them on the floor, shaking the entire room with its size and weight. "W-woah!" Henoke leapt to his feet, only to be rocked back and forth by the quakes. Keeping a firm grip on his Keyblade, the teen grasped his weapon with both hands as he readied himself into a battle stance. "Henoke, have you ever fought a spirit?" Necro and Kosuke were beside him now, both ready to battle by the looks of it. Looking down at the phantom, Henoke shook his head, reverting his gaze back to the monster. "No...But it can't be too different from fighting a Heartless, right?"
Grinning a bit, Henoke looked over at the two friends he had made on this world, determined to keep them both safe. "Besides, it's three against one! This guy's toast!" He felt a fire burning in his heart, a confidence that was aided by the presence of his friends. Yeah...together, we can do this! There was no fear as his hands tightened around the handle of his weapon. Staring the large fox directly in the face, Henoke readied himself as he shouted out to his teammates.
"Alright you guys! I'll follow your lead!" He had never fought a Spirit, and would wait to act based on Necro's instructions.
Post by therunawaygirl on Mar 28, 2019 16:21:13 GMT -5
Necro remained by Henoke's side, while Kosuke drew his blade, and tried to spot the Spirit's weakness. No matter how much he attacked, however, he couldn't find it. The nine-tailed fox itself was no slouch either, dodging every attack it could, and attacking back after recieving a hit.
"Well, it's simple, really!" Necro said, cheeful, "Just attack its weak point. Its Emblem! Once we find it, this'll be a piece of cake!" "I don't... Think it's gonna be as easy, Necro..." Kosuke said, struggling to keep the Spirit at bay, "No matter how much I try to, there's no Emblem! None at all!" "WHAT? How does that work?!" "What are you asking me for?!
Struggling against the nine-tailed fox, Kosuke was pushed back. He struggled to keep balance, but had yet to give up. He held his blade tightly, and glanced at Henoke, nodding determined. He then looked back at the Spirit, that was now ready to prowl at them.
"Well, this won't be an easy battle" he said, "But I'm not giving up. Just attack until it can't go any further!"
As Necro and Kosuke leapt into action, Henoke gripped his keyblade tight in both hands as he ran forward, leaping back a bit to dodge one of the many tails that lashed around. Attempting to take the creature by surprise while Kosuke and Necro dealt with it from the front, Henoke ran around the large fox's side before charging in for an attack, hoping to take it by surprise. "Just attack its weak point. It's Emblem!" The wielder heard the phantom dragon's instructions. Kosuke barked back a reply, something about not being able to find one. The two yelling at each other even in the middle of combat caused the teen to laugh out loud as he hoisted his heavy Keyblade in the air, slashing down at the fox's side.
"It's fine, you guys! We can do this!" The attack didn't seem to do much, though Henoke quickly had to throw up his Keyblade to defend him from one of the creature's many tails as it slashed out in defense. Though he guarded the attack, the sheer power of it all caused him to slide backwards, despite his footing. The soles of his sneakers scraped against the ground as he was pushed back. Gritting his teeth a bit, Henoke focused to keep his footing as his arms waved at his sides while he tried to keep balance. The fox certainly was tough.
Hm...lets try this! The teen hoisted his Keyblade in front of him, aiming directly at the fox's large face. Shouting out with all his might, a large heat formed at the tip of the long hefty Keyblade as a large fireball shot forth, bursting into the night. "Firaga!!!" The spell arced through the night as it raced directly for the large fox's face. Upon collision it exploded, causing Henoke to shield his eyes from the brilliant light that flared again the dark night. Once the light from the explosion dimmed, Henoke uncovered his eyes, hoping to see how much damage his spell had done, if any.
He kept searching for the Emblem. "You guys see anything, yet?! I haven't!" His eyes scanned every inch of the fox, but they couldn't find anything.
Post by therunawaygirl on Mar 29, 2019 15:27:24 GMT -5
"Not... Yet!" Kosuke said, avoiding one of the fox's attacks, "I don't know why, but there's no weak points...!" "Then we just push it!" Necro shouted.
The Firaga spell collisioned against the fox's face, causing quite a bit of damage. The fox sharply turned towards Henoke, eyes locked on him, as it let out a low growl, baring its fangs towards the young Keyblade Wielder. Necro and Kosuke took that focus as an opportunity to force it back. Kosuke slashed first with his blade, and Necro, after Kosuke told him to, dashed with amazing speed past the Nine-tailed Fox.
"Hey, what do you say we end this now?" Kosuke asked Henoke, firmly, "The longer this fight lasts, the more problems we'll have. It's best if we end it now."
A burst of energy was lurking around Kosuke, as his gaze was fixated on the Spirit. Holding his blade firmly, Kosuke was waiting for Henoke's answer, to then land a final blow alongside him.
The burst soon took for of mist, surrounding him in a blast of energy. While his appearance overall didn't change much except for his clothes taking a green-ish color hue, and his blade suddenly gained a powerful aura. Necro had also dissapeared, no longer visible anywhere around them. It all had happened in the blink of an eye...
Henoke shouted out in glee, punching the air with a small jump as his spell landed, seemingly hurting the fox. Unfortunately, this seemed to just make it angrier, as it focused on him afterwards. Hehe...whoops... With a sheepish grin, Henoke yelled out in surprise as suddenly Kosuke and Necro forced the gigantic beast back. These guys really are a good duo... Truthfully, there was pride swelling in his chest. Pride at his new friends and how strong they were. He definitely wouldn't need to worry about these two during any fighting. For a moment, the wielder watched the two take on the beast, smiling in approval before they returned to his side.
"Hey, what do you say we end this now?" Kosuke had returned from his assault, readying his weapon for a final assault. Henoke did recall the swordsman and Necro both mentioning how when it came to Illusions or the sort, it was best to get the fight over with. Nodding in affirmation, the teen grinned as he lifted up his weapon in one hand in front of him. Undoing the bandages that wrapped around the base of the long steel blade, Henoke heaved with both hands as he seemed to separate his weapon in two. The Keyblade broke clean down the middle, where the large groove was, becoming two one-sided blades instead of a single double-sided one. The large weight that he usually swung around was now evenly distributed, resting in both of his hands nicely as he twirled them.
Grinning as he looked over at his partner, Henoke nodded as he crouched down, readying his strike. "Lets do it!" As the two began their assault, the teen was off in a burst of speed otherwise not shown before. It seemed that when his Keyblade was in two, overall everything felt lighter. Moving across the battlefield as a streak of orange motion, a radiant golden light surrounded both of the Keyblades in Henoke's hands as he shouted out his attack: "ZANTETSUKEN!!!!!" Suddenly, only a streak of gold and orange was seen, seemingly passing through the large creature. Within the blink of an eye, Henoke stood behind the gigantic beast, both blades at his side as he crouched on the ground, the golden energy around them flickering and wavering from existence as his attack ended.
It was his most powerful move, one his master had trained him in diligently. One powerful slash, faster than the blink of an eye. When divided into two weapons, it created two powerful attacks that were equally fast. Heh, he'd probably still nag me on my form or somethin'. The thought caused Henoke to grin, as he turned to see what his and Kosuke's joined attack had accomplished.
Post by therunawaygirl on Mar 29, 2019 22:31:31 GMT -5
Kosuke, much like Henoke, dashed past the Fox, his blade drawn in a clean strike. He became a hazy figure, a few seconds after he drew his sword across cleanly. The Fox flinched, and fell down, but not defeated. It still recieved quite a lot of damage, and recognized the trio to be formidable, forcing it to retreat. It stagged back up, but instead of charging back, moved backwards. The Nine-tailed Fox then turned around and jumped through the gap, closing it behind its path. Kosuke, sheathing the blade back, looked up to where the gap was, the glimmer slowly dissapearing until becoming nothing. The battle seemed over, at least for the time being.
"That was quite impressive" he turned towards Henoke with an earnest smile, "We should do those kinds of things a little more often, don't'cha think?" "You're just happy it's over" Necro seemingly rolled his eyes. "Oh, so you're not?" "I never meant it like that!"
Kosuke chuckled, and Necro joined soon after. The tension seemed to dissapear, and, after a while of thought, Kosuke thought it best to leave back to the attraction park. He nudged Henoke to follow them to the entrance, seeing that there was nothing else in that closed room.
"Well, that was not what we were lookin' for..." he mentioned aloud, folding his hands behind his head, "We still have to explore the cliff a bit more, right? That, and maybe the attraction park itself." "We could find new things, yeah" Necro replied. "Hmm... Where would be a good place to start, though...?" "If you're seeking for answers, then why remain here? You know very well that the Shore holds them. Yet why are you looking here, where memories become nothing more than fragile Illusions? Not to mention the lack of them..."
Kosuke stopped dead in his tracks, and looked behind him. Necro got a bit aggresive, as a girl with silver hair decided to step further towards him. Her eyes, red and cold, were glaring amusingly towards them, and even chuckled a bit after seeing their expressions.
"Who...?" Kosuke was at a loss for words. "Were you going to ask who I was? My, that's quite obnoxious... It's getting old, even" the girl said, with a hint of sadism, "However, I will admit this: I never thought that you'd be able to defeat that Spirit with such ease. I guess you are truly hidding your power, after all..." "Hiding my... What are you talking about?" Kosuke grew a bit more annoyed, "I don't even know you. But even now I can tell you're up to something... And I'm not trusting you one bit." "I guess it's true what they say about instincts... Completely appart from memories..." "Scram!" Necro shouted, "We have nothing to do with you, so don't bother!"
Standing up straight, Henoke grinned broadly as the creature seemed to retreat, leaping back into the glimmering gap that it came from. As the wound in the world closed, Henoke pressed the two blades back into one, tying the bandages around the base of the blade tightly before shouldering the hefty Keyblade. "Well, that was not what we were lookin' for..." Kosuke's voice rang out in the after-battle silence, causing Henoke to laugh aloud as he shook his head. "Yeah...for sure." It was quite funny to him, how these sorts of things just seemed to always happen. He always ended up distracted on other worlds, there was always something going on. "We still have to explore the cliff a bit more, right? That, and maybe the attraction park itself." All seemed to be a good idea, as Henoke nodded in agreement with Kosuke and Necro.
Suddenly a woman's voice cut through the conversation, causing the teen's gold-brown eyes to fall on the intruder. It was a woman with silver hair and red eyes that seemed to glare out at them. "..." He got a weird vibe from the woman, furrowing his brow a bit and frowning at the mention of 'The Shore'. As the woman spoke with Kosuke, Henoke found himself growing angrier. I don't like how she talks. It seemed like she was teasing Kosuke, toying with the fact he didn't have all of his memories back. Almost as if she knew something he didn't, and loved that fact. Gripping the handle of his Keyblade tightly, Henoke slashed the weapon down at his side, his gaze firm and set in a scowl at the woman.
"Scram!" Necro's voice shouted out, solidifying the foreboding feeling Henoke got from this intruder. She definitely wasn't a friend. Holding his glare at the woman, the key bearer hoisted his heavy weapon up to point directly at her. "Oi, lady. I don't like how you're talking to my friend." He didn't know what was going on, but he didn't have to. It seemed whoever this was wasn't a friend of Kosuke's, and if they weren't a friend, he didn't want to see them hang around with that kind of attitude. Taking a few steps closer to the woman, Henoke's face grew dark as his menacing scowl only intensified, the grip on his weapon tight. He wasn't going to let anyone mess with the friends he had made on this world.
"Listen to the dragon and take a hike, 'fore I get...angry." Already she had annoyed him, due to how she was acting towards Kosuke, a large vein emerging on his forehead as Henoke glared at the woman. His face was beginning to grow faintly red in hue.
Post by therunawaygirl on Mar 30, 2019 11:17:48 GMT -5
"Friend?" the girl asked, amused, "A Replica, such as you, having friends? That's a first..." she added, chuckling.
She smirked, and moved Henoke's Keyblade away, unfazed. She looked as Kosuke, who was slowly getting more and more uneasy at her sight. Necro kept trying to stand in between the girl and him, but even he was uneasy. Just who was that?
"My goodness... Who would go as far as mixing data and memories togehter?" she asked aloud, a question obviously meant more for Henoke than anything, her red eyes fixated on him, "Such a waste... It just makes it useless to create Illusions as strong as regular people." "Leave us alone" Kosuke snapped, "If you've got nothing to do with us, leave us alone." "I'm afraid not. I'm here for unfinished business, you see" the girl now glared at Kosuke, smirking, "And it has to do with you, in particular. How, exactly, did you come back from death's grasp?" she asked, cunning, "Knowing such valuable information would prove useful... We could make sure she remains dead once we take her out of the picture. That would ensure an airtight plan." "She...? You don't mean...?!" Necro looked shocked, and then growled, "I'm not gonna let you do that!" "As much as you'd like to avoid it, you're no match for me. Face it, already. You can't protect her forever." "..." Kosuke clenched his fists, "I'm not going to let you hurt her. Not any longer!"
Kosuke grabbed his blade's hilt, anger and fury making the girl a lone target to slay down. The girl, still with an amused yet sadistic smirk drawn in her lips, looked down straight towards him. She shrugged, and turned her back towards them.
"As much as I'd like, I'm not here to fight you. Yet" she said, "But, when the time comes... I hope to make a proper enemy of mine once we cross swords."
Henoke gritted his teeth as the vein on his forehead only grew larger and his face more red as the woman prattled on nonsense at him about memories, replicas and data, whatever any of that meant. "You like to say some weird stuff. Tryin' ta psyche me out?" As the woman smirked at him and gleaned with her red eyes, Henoke found that his blade was lowered without him even fully being aware of it. Matching the red eyes with a glare of his own, the key bearer scowled at the woman, unsure as to what her angle was. Gripping his weapon tightly, Henoke kept his eyes on her as she spoke with Kosuke.
It seemed that whoever this woman was, she wasn't good news. Openly mocking and threatening them, the woman made a bold claim about slaying someone dear to Kosuke. As the swordsman readied himself out of anger, Henoke found himself aligning with his friend. He couldn't explain it, but watching this woman prattle off nonsense and threaten others was too much for him to idly watch. "As much as I'd like to, I'm not here to fight you. Yet." The woman's sentence cut through the night as she turned away from the two, staring out at the sky."But, when the time comes...I hope to make a proper enemy of mine once we cross swords."Henoke had had enough of listening to this woman. Gripping the handle of his Keyblade tightly with both hands, the teen charged forward towards the woman, raising his weapon high.
"Tch! Tough talk, lady!" His face was enraged and red as a golden light began to crackle around his Keyblade and his own form. It seemed he was on the verge of something, though the teen didn't say what as he rushed towards the woman, his weapon readying a strike. "Get lost! Before I send you home in pieces!" Sliding into a powerful charge, the teen stabbed his Keyblade out towards the woman, hoping to land a hit or at least scare her into leaving the two alone.
Post by therunawaygirl on Mar 30, 2019 16:21:56 GMT -5
The Keyblade had been blocked. It wasn't clear how or why, but the girl grabbed the Keyblade as it was thrusted towards her. Whoever that was had a lot of strength, and it was now going serious after Henoke's provocation. Kosuke and Necro looked shocked as he tried to attack, but was immediately blocked. As for the girl, her red eyes were fully fixated onto the young Keyblade Wielder, bitter and serious.
"I think you did not understand what I just said" her tone was sharp and monotone, holding the Keyblade firmly, "I'm not here to fight. But... If you insist..." she smirked,"Then I guess I shall obligue to such battle."
The girl tossed the Keyblade aside, and Kosuke rushed to help Henoke out. As for her, she once again looked at them with her chin raised high, and summoned a Keyblade of her own.
"Henoke, you okay?" Kosuke asked, "What were you thinking, attacking someone like that...?" he scolded, worried. "I don't think we should focus on that" Necro said, looking at the girl, "I think it's best if we just fend her off. It doesn't look like she'll leave now." "Well, the Familiar is smart, at the very least" the girl said, "But you may stay out of it. After all... You're not the ones who wanted to fight. And besides, I believe it'll be more interesting after you recover your memories..." "..." Kosuke looked at her back, "I won't. Not after you attacked a friend like that. Especially after hearing what you're up to." "Hmph... Very well. Don't say I didn't warn you"
Kosuke drew his sword. He took a deep breath, and glared at the girl, who was ready to fight. There was a strange aura around Kosuke, who was now completely fixated on fighting the girl before him.
For a moment, he wasn't sure what happened. Henoke stood in his battle stance, his arms out and his Keyblade thrusted forward. He had put a lot of power into the stab, having lost his temper momentarily. The woman with silver hair had simply...stopped it, holding the edge of it as though it were nothing but a toy. Tossing the Keyblade aside, Henoke's right arm was thrown wildly to his side, causing the teen to rock back on his heels because of the weapons weight. Regaining his balance as Kosuke rushed to his side, the teen felt a rather bashful embarrassment come over him as he heard the scolding from a boy only one year his superior. "Henoke, you okay? What were you thinking, attacking someone like that...?" A slight blush came across the teen's face as he frowned, turning away from his friend.
"S-sorry...I lost my cool..." He had gotten angry at how she had been speaking to Kosuke, but his friend was right, he was in the wrong here. He had provoked the enemy, who was simply taunting and going to walk away after feeling high and mighty. Screw that! People didn't get to act all high and mighty towards his friends and just walk away. As Necro and Kosuke prepared themselves, Henoke took a visible step back in surprise as the woman summoned a Keyblade of her own. "What?! They Keyblade would choose someone like her?!" He was blown away. She didn't seem that pure of heart at all. Has she fallen to darkness...or is she just disagreeable? For a moment, the teen paused as Kosuke readied his sword and a different aura seemed to settle around him. Just who is this woman?
Lowering his weapon to his side for a moment, Henoke figured if he was going to ask it might as well be now rather than later. "If you know something Kosuke has forgotten...why not just tell him what it is?" His free hand was shaking, clenched at his side in a tight fist while the other gripped the handle of his Keyblade tightly. His gold-brown eyes bore into the woman, the red hue on his face not disappearing just yet. "I can't forgive you, for teasing him when he's hurting like that." Grabbing his weapon in both hands with a tight grip, Henoke readied himself next to Kosuke, wondering what kind of fighter this woman was.
Thinking of how she blocked his weapon earlier, Henoke decided against charging in. Instead, he stood ready and waiting for an opportunity to strike, next to Kosuke.

The girl smirked at Henoke's expressions, struggling to keep her cool. She just wanted to laugh it all away... But she would show them true fear. Holding her Keyblade firmly, she looked at Henoke with a sadistic smirk.
"Why should I?" she asked back, "Have you ever wondered... Why people lie? No? Well... I think I've come to the reasons why... And let me explain them to you. Although I doubt a Replica such as yourself would understand it..."
"People lie in order to avoid pain. A petty lie, to hide the worst of truths. But isn't a lie the same as the truth, if it hurts just as much?" she pointed at Kosuke, "However... Ommiting the truth isn't the same as lying. And it's why I love that despair. Knowing that you are indeed telling the truth... But do not say it in order to drive them into even deeper despair... Is the sole reason I exist." "You..." Kosuke glared back, "So, this is just a game to you?! Toying with people's lives, hiding or revealing painful truths... Is all of that fun to you?!" "Hmph... It's not a game. While I do admit it's what I most enjoy, this is no mere game... It's what dictates the future for everything. And it begins... With her." "I've had enough of you!"
Kosuke charged towards the girl, but she raised her sword to block the attack. However, Kosuke kept pushing through, and forced the girl to parry away. She raised her hand, glaring, as 3 meteors appeared above her, to then crash down towards Kosuke and Henoke.
"Had enough or not, I don't think you have a choice on the matter" she stated, "You see, the Shore itself isn't stable anymore. But you knew that already, didn't you? You do know what'll happen if it comes to dissapear, do you not?" "Even so, I'm not letting you get away with this!" Kosuke yelled, slashing against her once more, "Doesn't matter if my memory isn't with me, I won't let you kill Tori!" "Try and stop me if you may. But this is the fate that awaits you. This time, you won't come back from the dead! Alterna!"
Sparks of light gathered around Kosuke and Henoke, and the ground below them began to collapse. The girl smirked.
She's not making any sense... Henoke was simply staring at the woman with a blank expression as she launched into her rant about 'despair' and 'life's purpose' and a lot of other nonsense that Henoke couldn't keep up with. "You're...confusing." He blinked a bit, shaking his head as he heard Kosuke's voice ring out. "So, this is just a game to you?! Toying with people's lives, hiding or revealing painful truths...Is all of that fun to you?!" The anger inside his friends voice fueled Henoke's fire as his gold-brown eyes glared at the woman. Shouting out in surprise as Kosuke charged the woman, Henoke readied his weapon just as he witnessed her summon forth three meteors.
As the meteors bore into the earth with a crash, Henoke leapt backwards, evading the mild explosion as he threw his weapon up in defense from the pressure. Landing on his feet with a skid back, the teen slashed out to ready himself in a battle stance. The woman and Kosuke were in a heated conversation, talking about something called 'The Shore'. Man...I'm lost... He had no idea what the two were talking about. "I won't let you kill Tori!" Kosuke's voice rang out, causing Henoke to stir into action. He remembered Kosuke mentioning that name, Tori was someone dear to him. If this woman's aim was to kill someone close to his friend, well, he wouldn't just let that happen. A sudden anger burst from within his chest as he tightened his grip on his Keyblade.
Just then sparks of light gathered around the two, the ground beginning to collapse from beneath his feet. "Kosuke!!!" Rushing to his friends side, Henoke grabbed onto the swordsman before pushing off from the ground, leaping high into the air, higher than most could dream of. Releasing his friend in the air so he could either escape or counter attack, Henoke's face was growing a brilliant shade of red as a vein was erupting in his forehead. "HEY!! YOU CAN'T JUST MISTAKE THE VALUE OF LIVES!" A golden energy began to crackle around the steel grey Keyblade in his hand, beginning to spark around the wielder as well. The teen gripped his large weapon in both hands tightly, suspended in the air for a brief moment.
A surge of energy burst forth from Henoke as a golden aura emerged around him, his face a beat red as he shouted out, hurling the Keyblade down towards the woman with all of his might, using his Strike Raid ability. She trampled over people as if it were nothing, threatening the lives of his friends and their loved ones. She's the worst. The thought was the only one in his head as rage boiled him from the inside. The Keyblade was a spinning circle of golden light and crackling energy as it plummeted down towards his target.
Whether or not the strike landed, Henoke would call his Keyblade back to his hands in a burst of golden light, falling directly towards the woman. As he fell through the sky, plummeting down towards her, the teen lifted the 'Steel Heart' to ready it for an attack. Once he was within close enough range, Henoke would slash down for a heavy blow above the woman, pouring in his strength in case she decided to try and block the attack.
The golden crackling aura around him and his weapon caused the raging bearer to be a single streak of gold slicing through the night.

Kosuke was caught off-guard. Had it not been for Henoke, he probably would've been finished back then, when the Alterna spell connected. As Henoke tossed his Keyblade towards the girl, Kosuke tried to recover himself back in track. As he finaly came to his senses, Henoke was charging towards her once more.
As for the girl, she blocked the Keyblade, but she was caught off-guard by it, and she staggered a bit. The weight of the Keyblade was too much for her to handle, so she was left defenseless as Henoke charged towards her, tossing her back. Kosuke dropped back to the ground, and, dashed back and forth, creating after images at every step. Once close to the girl, he slashed once, all of the after images following his move. The girl staggered, and seemed like she wouldn't stand up. The Keyblade in her hands vanished, and she glared at them.
"You... How are you this strong?!" she asked, bitterly. "...In the end, you're not as tough as you claim to be, huh?" Kosuke asked back, sternly, "Now answer: What are you after? Why do you want to kill Tori?" "...Hmph. Why should I tell you? You might've bested me here, but I'm not done yet..." she stood back up, without the help of the Keyblade, "Besides... Now I'm really pissed." "So, you still wanna fight?" "Hmph... Of course."
The girl held her hand forwards, smirking. Kosuke, alongside Necro, readied themselves for her next move.
"Ah, right... Before I forget... The name's Kira. Burn that name into your memories, before I end with you once and for all! Scathe!"
5 orbs of light surrounded Kira, and each shot a beam towards Henoke and Kosuke. Kosuke blocked one, while other 3 were aimed at Henoke, and one managed to barely past by Necro. Kosuke panicked for a second when his Familiar was barely ht, giving Kira the opening she needed. Summoning the Keyblade once more, she dashed towards him, but he managed to block at the last second.
Henoke's landing on the ground caused a small crater to crack as he thundered down, tossing back his opponent. Immediately after his assault, Kosuke seemed to clone himself and strike out in a powerful attack, forcing the woman to her knees as the images disappeared. The golden aura surrounding the teen continued to crackle and snap as he stood straight, watching the two's interaction for a moment as he heaved the large Keyblade onto his shoulder. "So, you still wanna fight?" Kosuke's question rang through the battlefield, causing the wielder to pause for a moment, rather than closing the distance. "Hmph...of course."
Suddenly the woman, introducing herself finally as 'Kira', summoned and shot out five large orbs of light, three aiming directly for the raging wielder. Annoying!! Henoke gripped his weapon with both hands, slashing out with a powerful swing as he sliced through the first orb vertically to avoid the damage. The second he hoisted up the Keyblade to block, though the third had managed to overcome his defenses, colliding against the teen as he threw up a guard a little too late. Skidding back across the ground, Henoke managed to keep his footing. Though his body had indeed been damaged, he didn't register it too much at the moment. Looking up, his white eyes landed on Kosuke and Kira struggling in a guard. Too angry to focus enough to cast a spell, Henoke attempted a different tactic to close the distance.
Rushing across the battlefield with a sprint, the teen closed the remaining gap by leaping through the air. As he landed he rolled, popping up on his feet directly behind Kira as he attempted to slash out at her legs with his hefty weapon, hoping to take her unaware. Regardless of whether or not this worked, he would follow up the attack with his Slapshot ability, his glowing Keyblade a whirlwind of gold as he unleashed an impressively fast combo at her. Henoke's voice was ragged as he spoke through gritted teeth, his face a beat red beneath the golden crackling aura as the vein in his forehead bulged.
