*Tetsuya*

"Nori!" Yuko screamed again. She ran up to her childhood friend. Her eyes and skin lost some of its color. "Nori..."

"Hey, kid," Serrano said, picking him up. "Hey, open your eyes!"

"Nori, please wake up," Ximena said, placing a hand on his head.

"Please, Nori..." Yuko said, closing her her eyes tightly. "Please wake up."

"Do not fear, my faithful son is safe," the voice said once more before vanishing.

Nori let out a weak groan as he opened his eyes. "Where is Nori? What happened to the Sky Father?"

"Nori! Nori's awake!" Yuko said, opening her eyes.

Nori giggled as Serrano put him back down. "Yeah, Nori is up now!"

"Sky Father?" Saya asked. She glanced up at the white mist overhead. "You spoke to him?"

Nori rubbed his forehead. "Yeah, Nori even saw him! The one who along with the Earth Mother crafted this world. He told Nori that the time for rebirth is near, but that first the seven must be reborn."

Saya rubbed her chin as she lowered her head. "That's... interesting."

"That's still a long ways away," a voice echoed. Descending from the ivory stairs was a blue winged angel.

"Aunt," Saya said, turning around to the face the sapphire-winged woman.

The woman walked past her niece. She raised her top wings, allowing us to see her long, wavy indigo hair. The angel's eyes were like those of Eri's, as deep hued as the oceans themselves. "Greetings, mortals."

"Aunt? So this woman must be..." Setsuko began.

"Regina? Aquarina? That's right, I'm one of the seven, the 'Angel of Water'," the angelic woman said, floating closer to us. "You five with the pauldrons my husband made, come with me."

Wait, Halim made these?

"Huh?" I asked. "What for?"

She glanced back, staring at us silently. In the sea of her eyes were hints of bitterness. "Follow me and we'll tell you."

"Wait," Yuko yelled. "What about Yuko and the others?"

Aquarina stared at her for a moment. "You're..."

"Yeah, she's Amira's relative," Saya responded. "Like Amira's mother, she lived as a slave. A relic dating back to your rule, dear aunt."

Right, Yuko's ancestors were captured in that most ancient of wars between Xeleria and our realm.

Aquarina floated upwards, not saying another word.

"You five knights follow my aunt," Saya said, stepping toward Yuko. "I'll take care of Yuko and the others." She paused. "But before that, who do you desire to lead your groups in your absence?"

My eyes shifted toward Setsuko.

She's going to likely pick my cousin. Eiichi will probably go for his girlfriend. Hideo will likely go for Koukyuu or Ayumi. Hyosetsu... no idea as to he would choose.

I turned toward my group.

Out of all of my members, the top choices are Kohri, Takuya, and Ximena. Ximena though might be a better leader with her ability to break up squabbles. Takuya meanwhile s easy to befriend. But then again, Kohri is an excellent judge of character.

"I'll go with Maki," Setsuko said, causing everyone to gasp.

Serrano smiled as if agreeing with her choice.

"A Kasai no Ki?" Saya said, visibly shocked.

"Hmph. I'm nothing like my ancestors. I wish to do away with the grudges of the past. Maki and Serrano are the most capable candidates. But Serrano is my fiancé, so I rather avoid picking him. Doing so would amount to nepotism."

Maki smiled. "Really?"

Setsuko smiled and nodded. "Yeah."

The Kasai no Ki prince snickered. "Thanks. I promise that I will assure that we find the most capable candidates that we can."

"A Kasai no Ki, huh?" Hyosetsu asked, eyeing Kei. "I hate to say it, but his younger brother would be the best suited to take over from me."

"What?" Huang asked. "You honestly expect me to take orders from a Kyuu-Hyakuian? And someone younger than me at that."

"We're moving forward from the conflict between the Kasai no Ki and Kuroriku clans," Maki interjected. "I think that we should do the same as Kyuu-Hyaku and Wudi."

Huang snickered. "Let

her chest and smiled slightly. "It was the happiest moment in my life. My heart felt as if it would leave my chest at that moment. Yet..."

"It fell apart, didn't it?" Ximena asked.

Rosa sniffled. "Y-yeah. That guy, the one who attacked me, he robbed me of that joy."

Ximena patted her back. "There, there. Take it easy. Recalling those moments are still hard on you."

"Yeah," Yuko said, nodding.

The princess smiled as she wiped away her tears. "Thanks, Xime. You too, Yuko. T-though, next time it will be my turn to steal a kiss from him."

Mean man chuckled and turned his back to us. "Both of you are interesting girls. I wonder which of you my son will pick. Or perhaps he'll go for Setsuko."

"Setsuko?" Rosalba and Yuko said in unison along with a third voice. It was Master's cousin, Serrano. He glared at his mean uncle.

"What did you mean by that?" Serrano asked.

Mean man smiled at him. "Relax, I was only teasing the girls. Do not tell me that you actually think that there's something going on between the crown-princess and my son."

"Stop speaking nonsense, Tekeshi," mean king said as he walked behind us. He turned to look at his nephew and saw that he was staring at the cherry blossom trees.

"Aren't they beautiful?" mean man asked.

"They are," Yuko said, eyes glittering.

Rosalba nodded. "Yeah."

"Reminds me of pictures of Kasai no Ki I've seen," Ximena said, sighing. "Hope I can visit it one day."

Serrano turned away, not saying a word.

"Serra, you alright?" Rosa asked him.

"Blossoms with short lives..." he muttered.

"That reminds me, Osamu and I haven't told you what Mr. Itou said," mean man said.

Serrano stopped and turned to look at his two uncles. "That's right. What did he say that I should know?"

Mean king took a deep breath. "You might want to hold onto someone or something before I tell you this. It's about your brother."

He gasped. "M-my brother? What about him?"

"Why would Mr. Itou have to say about Conrad?" Rosalba asked, staring at her father.

Yuko's eyes widened. Did princess just say Conrad? T-that name... where did Yuko hear it before?

Her eyes shifted to the dagger strapped on her belt. Conrad...

"Go on, tell me!" Serrano said, stepping closer to him. His silver eyes were fixed on his paternal uncle.

The king took a couple of deep breaths. "Mr. Itou said he saw someone who looked like him with the red haired Ruler, Aster."

"W-what?"

The king nodded. "Conrad... he might still be alive."
