Wind... There seemed to be wind all around her... Nothing harsh, just a gentle breeze. Though the breeze was cool, she was warm. And she felt safe, loke someone was holding her, protecting her. In her mind, she watched as different shades of black swirled around and created dark yet beautiful patterns. Then, the darkness seemed to form an outline. Slowly it came into view. "Xantus..." She seemed to float towards him, and she smiled as she gently landed in his outstretched arms. From behind him, she could see another figure, more familiar, yet more distant. "Rashi..." She caught a glimpse of a smile before he disappeared. She smiled. He'd be back. He always came back. She snuggled deeper into Xan's arms, reveling in the warmth radiating from him. She reached up and gently touched his face, and he smiled. "I'll protect you while Rashi's away. And when he returns, I shall help him keep you safe." "Xan..." Slowly, Xan leaned down towards her, but vanished before his lips touched hers. She smiled as the dark patterns began again, and a single word ran through her mind... She sighed contentedly. "Sleep tight, little one," she heard faintly on the breeze. "You will need it where we are going." She closed her eyes, welcoming the darkness as it encased her...

Xantus smiled as Iñaki instinctively clung to him as they flew high above the ground. His smile faded as he remembered the strange new cloak that Rashi was wearing, as well as his strange new sword. He had seen a sword like that once before. . .but, how could Rashi have gotten it? There was only two other people who could wield it. . . "Could he have found Kagan Deathcleaver? Is it possible? And how could he have known to arrive just as the doppelganger appeared? And that cape. . ." He frowned at the possibilities. "Things are not looking good. . ." His brow furrowed as he continued on towards his target.

Iñaki stirred slightly in Xantus's arms, yawning slightly. He looked down at her. "Xan?" she asked sleepily. "Where...?" "Don't worry. Go back to sleep." "Okay..." She snuggled closer to him, her hands clenching tighter to his coat. She smiled slightly, then fell back into the dark patterns. 'Protect me, Xan. Keep me safe. Just don't leave...' Her thoughts drifted away with the gentle breeze playing with her hair. She sighed contentedly as she slid deeper into sleep.

The wind…it’s so calm...soothing........Rashi smiled as he sensed Iñaki’s calm sleep. He felt her whisper to him...wishing him back. She knew he'd be back…she always knew-not matter what he'd return to her. He looked down at the sword in his hand and sighed. His new cloak flowed around him in the gentile breeze. He walked closer to the edge of the cliff and frowned. In the distant darkness, he could see a feint light appearing. "No...It cannot begin." he sighed again more dramatically and sheathed his sword. He looked to the sky. "I am ready." 4 large, brilliant black wings sprang forth from his back. He jumped into the air and began flying towards the feint light. "The twilight can NOT be here already. Its too soon!!!!" he forced his energy to fly harder and faster as his memory floated back to his crossover to this realm....... ********************* flashback ********************** "Rashi Koherea........" Rashi was floating, in a weird warming coolness...... "Rashi Koherea…I beckon thee…awaken..." 'Who...who is this that is calling me? "Wake up”? Am I dreaming?? It’s so pleasant here....where am I? Where are Iñaki, and Folken? Where are all of my friends?? " "Rashi Koherea........awaken, warrior of the gods...I beckon thee...open your eyes and mind to me." 'Who...who are you?' Rashi felt a sudden pleasantry float through his body as he opened his minds eye and saw a pure vision of beauty. It floated there…with eight wings of gorgeously pure white and a glowing golden light about it..... "Please...tell me your name?" Rashi’s voice echoed thorough his mind and through the floating realm... "My name is not important. I am an Adam Katamon. The highest celestial being god created. I am the only Adam Katamon who can manipulate time and realm magic." the angel smiled brilliantly at him. "You are in what is called "Limbo" right now. I have brought you here to ask a favor of you....." " A favor? Of me?!" he was in awe...." But…what can I do? I’m only a young man... I am of no importance..." "You are wrong, young Rashi Koherea. You are the Warrior of the Gods.....your spiritual name given to you millennia ago is Saiyatsu." 'Saiyatsu?' ***flashbacks of that post were he was called Saiyatsu by that one person LoL**** "You are important to the well being of all realms. Will you accept the quest I am about to set before you?" "yes…yes I accept, Adam Katamon. Just tell me...what do you need me to do?" **a panoramic scene of a brilliant land appears before Rashi as Adam Katamon speaks**** "There is a land, a brilliant dimension of purity and gorgeousness. It is at a deadly risk. What you see before you is this land, but you are seeing its hidden form. Its true form is darkness. It is the shadow realm. Its beautiful scenery and grand majesties are normally covered in darkness. That is how it has always been." the land Rashi could see soon returned to a blackness.... "This realm is in grave danger. It has been merged by the horrid black magic to the "mirror realm". I need you to rid this realm of its evil influences, and purify it once again.\" "How am I to do this, Adam Katamon?" "You must destroy as much evil creatures in this realm as possible. Collect their life forces and energies and use them to destroy the source of the evil. You will need the help of your friend, Iñaki. She will be a crucial point in your journey here. But you must not see her until you fihgt the source of evil. If you do...it will bring about the "twilight". " "Twilight? What’s that?" "The Twilight will be the destruction of this realm. It will seem like the twilight of a new day, but wll destroy all that keeps this realm alive." "Wh-what?! How do I stop this twilight from coming?!" "You must sacrifice...." "sacrifice what?!" "you...must..." the Adam Katamon begins to disappear "You. Must sacrifice...AHHHHHH" the realm shatters like a hit mirror, and Rashi is thrown into another realm of pure black... He stands up, and notices that his eyes have instantly readjusted to the darkness...as if it were day... "And so my journey begins again...in a strange land..." he begins walking north...the 'ceremonial' direction for his journeys...
