He saw her trying to attack him, but with the shock, he knew she wouldn't be able to. It did make him really sad though when she didn't remember him. After all they've been through, it was so easy to chance her memories, change who he was to her. He watched as the pixels from her body were disappearing and he wouldn't stand that. He begged Epius to figure out some way that he could get her to stay here. After all, he did just murder someone that was real. Sure they'd come back like Aether, but in this world right now, he died.
Soren could see her ruby eyes looking at his and he felt so much sadness fill him up. He didn't want her to go. He didn't want to be alone again for years without her. [b [#F78F18 "You are, but I don't want you to. It's not fair Aether"]] he felt her hands through his hair and then he hugged her closer. [b [#F78F18 "You don't need to be scared. I'll always be here. Even if I have to look for you everyday again. I will"]] he promised her.
When she began remembering him again, he frowned when she mentioned separating. [b [#F78F18 "I don't want to say goodbye either"]] he felt his chest tighten the more she cried. He hugged her tighter, not wanting to let her go. Not wanting to see her shatter for a second time. Why couldn't he protect her, keep her safe? Why did she always disappear from his side.
[b [#F78F18 "I don't know. I want to save you!"]] he said, getting really frustrated. It didn't matter anymore what happened to Leto. They screwed up and none of it mattered. Aether was going to disappear and forget about him again and he was going to be left alone with all his memories.
He saw her eyes and then he couldn't help but feel helpless. HE was going to just hold Aether here until she vanished. Then what? What was he going to do? [b [#F78F18 "I'll go to Wonderland everyday again. I promise"]] he told her, feeling the tears well up as it slid down his cheeks.
[b [#F78F18 "I don't want to give up. I'll find you again"]] he frowned, not wanting to hear what she couldn't do. [b [#F78F18 "We'll get through this Aether. I'll find you again and make you my girlfriend. But you can't forget me"]] he really didn't know if she would or not.
[b [#F78F18 "I'm sorry I let this happen. I let you down all the time. But...I want to be with you until it ends"]] he told her, leaning int and hugging her close. Soren rubbed his eyes, but then he leaned in to kiss her lips once more. He pressed his lips against hers sadly, kissing her one last time as he rested his head against her shoulder.
[b [#F78F18 "I want to save you somehow, but...I don't know how..."]] he cried, now feeling that emotion just build up. He couldn't go back to his old life like it was nothing. Aether had become a huge part of it the last few months. He didn't think he could just move on so quickly.
She swung with full force while he claimed she was brainwashed, but full force- wasn't a thing when the virus had caught up. Her eyes followed the pixels of her body floating up into the sky. Would it be enough to catch all of them and hold them in? Would it be enough to live in a room with no doors to hold her together? The tears flooded, as she struggled to remember what she wanted to never forget. She saw his eyes and they looked like they were in pain and she wanted to quiet down the pain for him too, even if she wasn't sure until she really focused on him. Soren...but she hardly remembered him. [b [#00cca3 "I don't want to leave you either. I'm dying, aren't I?" ]] She whispered, and touched his hair...so fluffy.
[b [#00cca3 "I'm scared..." ]] She whispered.
Epius never had thought that they'd go with a sacrifice and didn't know that Soren would have done it so soon. If he would have known that he would have had been more prepared to deal with this but the sword was pulled out and there was little remainder of Leto's breath.
He made her queen, but it was hard to remember. [b [#00cca3 "Yea...a picnic. We did? I..." ]] She tried to remember, when her AI helped her, she remembered bits and pieces. The more her AI remembered, the more she felt an array of emotions overwhelm her all at once. She ate something so disgusting but then it all came back to her. Soren, the memories... wait Leto! Soren, Soren killed Leto to-no... But it didn't do anything. He really must have wanted to save her but...this wasn't right. And even so...Epius said there wasn't a way out of this.
. [b [#00cca3 "But we're going to separate," ]] Her voice cracked, tears pouring out, . [b [#00cca3 "I don't want to be alone Soren. I don't want to say goodbye." ]] She began to cry and hold onto him, feeling him holder her closer. She clung onto him so tight, feeling as if the tighter she held onto him, the more she'd be able to stay. "I don't want to forget you." Her voice quiet and meek.
. [b [#00cca3 "Is there any way!? Any? I'll do anything." ]] Aether called out.
Epius heard them but he didn't know what more to do, "We needed Leto alive, we needed to drain Leto's life force and put it into Aether, and give Leto the virus instead." Epius explained, "I don't think there's anything more I can do. I will try, but I truly believe there isn't any loop hole out of this." He shook his head, "I'll be heading back and see what I can do for now." he snapped his fingers and teleported out.
She looked at Soren's eyes, . [b [#00cca3 "So...this is it. We're not going to be together after. What if we can't find each other? Do you remember, that, we gave each other's numbers, that we wrote down where to meet if something happens. If I forget... Meet me there. Okay? Or meet me at wonderland. But...if you can't, if there's no way... then, than," ]] Her voice crumbled again, she wiped her eyes, . [b [#00cca3 "It's okay if you give up... I'll understand. I didn't even...get to be your girlfriend, or built the castle or have a ball with you. I didn't get to do much with you..." ]] Then she grew quiet because all she could do was cry. Only a few hours, to say goodbye and who knew when that time was up.
. [b [#00cca3 "I'm sorry... I couldn't protect us. You don't have to be here and watch me shatter. You can go back to where you normally live. It'll be like I'm just gone for a while." ]] She nodded, figuring this would help make it easier on him.
Soren couldn't believe it. He had his sword through another person. Another person just like him. Someone real, a human. He really did just kill a human and it was the first time he's ever done anything like this. He stared down at all the blood on his hands, but when he spoke, it made him feel like he did the right thing. This man was going to harm Aether. Take her away from him.
When he disappeared from the body, Soren was shocked. WHoever this was was here by mistake and they would forget all about it, but they didn't deserve to be killed like this. He saw Aether approach and when she tried to charge at him, he was able to defend himself, seeing her weep for Leto. Why? Why him? She didn't even know the man?
[b [#F78F18 "You knew me! That guy just brainwashed you"]] he told her, but then he saw her fall back and he held her in his arms. Soren could see the virus spreading, her body turning into pixels and he began panicking. She couldn't be disappearing, she just couldn't be. Soren felt tears fill his eyes, seeing her disappearing. [b [#F78F18 "I don't want you going anywhere"]] he told her and then he felt her touch his hair like how she always did.
WHen Epius said they needed to do it a certain way, Soren looked upset. All of that for nothing? He couldn't believe that Epius didn't tell him sooner. He heard him and was even more frustrated. How could she only be living for a few more hours. She will still vanish all over again and it would be all for nothing. He looked down and met her teal eyes as he kept her in his arms. He tried to tell her about them. [b [#F78F18 "We made you queen....we even went on a picnic, rode a dragon. You brought me to your secret place"]] he told her, feeling like he was going to be really sick.
He never wanted to lose her. [b [#F78F18 "I don't know Aether, but I don't want you to go away"]] he frowned, seeing Epius gathering things to make her eat. Soren felt a slight pain on his wrist and when he saw his blood, he closed his eyes, not wanting to see Aether eating that. He rubbed his eyes, but when Aether sat up, he looked at her in shock, seeing her body coming back.
When Epius spoke, he choked on his words. [b [#F78F18 "There's still Leto's blood on the ground and more of his clothes. Can't we use these or something?"]] he asked Epius and then he looked over at Aether. At least it was a relief to hear she remembered him, but they couldn't be happy about this at all.
Soren walked over and hugged his arms around her. [b [#F78F18 "I'm really glad you remember me at least"]] he held her closer and then he let out a deep sigh. We should at least spend time together....until....Epius figures out something.
She saw red, a lot of red on the ground and a lot of red on Leto's clothes...a sword. She saw Soren, and the horror crept up on her. She didn't feel the fear of getting hurt, mostly just anger and sadness. It didn't matter now, she was going to vanish anyway, and she already lost what she was trying to hang onto. At least...she thought it was supposed to be Leto. She drew out her sword and charged forward but she had little control over her own body.
"Wait!" Epius called out but it was too late, Soren lifted the sword from Leto, and any reminder of Leto shattered, and he stared in horror.
She didn't know what he was talking about him telling her he didn't know this guy. "I knew him since I was a kid!" She yelled out and end up missing and falling, but Soren had lifted her up. She tried to pull back from Soren, but had completely stopped. Her confusion was getting to her. She heard her name, and she didn't know what he was talking about but she couldn't stop the horrible sadness hitting her. She couldn't remember. She couldn't remember anything, and she felt like she was supposed to be remembering something so important. What was it... Tears flooded out and she saw the pixels of her floating away into the air, bit by bit, but it was growing into a faster rate. She felt everything slipping away, "GO where..." She asked. She saw his beautiful teal eyes, and felt sick to her stomach. Soren. "Soren..." She whispered. She touched his hair, "I know you."
Epius covered his face and shook his head, "I can't... There's nothing I can do. Leto's body vanished, we needed to sacrifice him in a certain way. The best I can do is make her live by resetting the virus for a few hours, but after those hours are done...she will die. With those few hours, I'll try to figure out solutions but most likely I won't be able to find anything. You should spend time with her while you can." It's been a long time since he's felt so useless.
While she was staring back at his teal eyes, she tried to remember, things... She tried, really tired... His eyes, his hair. That ceremony she brought him to. Mmm, when he kissed her. She could remember that but a second later she would forget it and it made her feel horrible. Red queen? She squinted, "No..." Feeling him hugging her tightly, her body becoming more light. Her AI appeared beside her. She recognized him and then he turned into a ball of light and went right through her chest, trying to give her memories he recorded. And she saw some images, that picnic, them trying to hunt that animal, and there AI's running on Bacon's back. It made her laugh. "I'm going to be gone, aren't I?" She looked at Soren.
Epius gathered the little small pieces of Leto that was left, trying to act quickly before it all went away. He used a knife and cut into He turned the little shatter of Lato into a small crystal. Without warning he cut into Soren's wrist a bit with a knife and rubbed the crystal in his blood and then looked at Aether "Swallow."
That looked disgusting...and painful.
"Do it, we don't have time." He said, "Hopefully, it lets you live for a few hours."
She took it and felt so disgusted but she closed her eyes and did it and every memory was pushed right back into her head for a moment. The pixels reversing and going back into her body. Her eyes widened, and she looked back at Soren, "I remember..." Sitting more up, "I feel okay." Just like before the virus struck her.
"No...like I said, hours left." Epius spoke.
Her throat locked up, "What...but I'm normal." She felt like crying again.
He didn't want anyone even thinking about taking Aether's life away. He was doing all that he could to help her stay in this world with him. He didn't want her to disappear at all. He parted ways with Leto, not wanting him to stay with him at all. They'd cover more ground this way, but at the same time, Soren thought that he'd be able to follow him and see what he was really up to.
The closer they got to the castle, the more he felt like maybe what he said earlier was true. He was going to put Aether out of her misery. He didn't want that though, so he acted on a whim. Soren took out his sword and headed towards the castle, stabbing Leto through the back with his sword. He heard the guy scream and when Soren realized what he did, there was no turning back now.
Soren could see the blood on the grass and then he heard him laugh. It wasn't his body? Who was he? HE didn't get it. Find them? Stay away from Aether....who was this man?
The body began screaming and when he saw someone that seemed like an entirely different person, Soren released his sword, [b [#F78F18 "I....I'm so sorry"]] he told him, seeing him fall to the ground. He watched as the boy before him slowly started to shatter and disappear in pixels.
Aether soon came out of no where and he didn't know what to do or say. He was speechless seeing her stare at him in shock. When she pulled out her sword, Soren pulled his sword from Leto's body. He shattered into pieces and then he saw Aether crying. [b [#F78F18 "You don't even know this guy!"]] he told her, seeing her swing her sword and missing. Soren rushed over to her when she fell. He held her in his arms [b [#F78F18 "Aether. No! No you can't go anywhere"]] he told her, looking up at Epius.
[b [#F78F18 "Epius! Save her!"]] he begged and could see Aether disappearing. [b [#F78F18 "Aether, stay with me. It's me Soren. The boy you met a long time ago. We beat the red queen together and then you became queen of Wonderland. Remember?"]] he asked, frowning and then hugging his arms around her tighter. He couldn't go another ten years without her. Not when they were so much closer.
Tormenting and teasing her death felt wrong. "PI01X" He spoke in a whisper, the letters and numbers appearing nearly transparent in front of his vision. The title of the poison was appearing in text 'De-' but it was interrupted by a horrible sensation of metal piercing through thick flesh, striking pain down every nerve of his body. He grunted, his body weighing down, seeing a beautiful castle ahead before he landed flat on the ground. What...
His eyes widened, and a familiar voice spoke...that kid. "Ahh." He felt the sword dig in deeper, pulsing every nerve. The system took time to recognize his status because he was possessing another body. The pain subsided until there was nothing but the uncomfortable feeling, and the body unable to move. This body was going to die, it had struck something vital and it was bleeding out, tainting the grass. He then gave a deep distorted short laugh, "You've made a mistake. This isn't my body. I was trying to help all of you live peacefully and the girl revive without pain. Stay away from each other, you've been warned. You better hide, we'll find you again." He closed his eyes and was pulled out of the body.
A shrilled scream came out of Leto, as pain spread through his entire body. He touched his chest and saw blood on his hand. He panted, the horror hitting him again as he screamed in pain, "W-what," His voice trembled as he cried, not understanding what the hell was going on. He looked back and saw an unfamiliar face, holding a sword on his back, "What...Why are you doing this?" He mumbled it out, coughing out and feeling his sense being cut off one by one. He couldn't breathe, he blacked out as he was bleeding out.
There was nothing...Nothings she could find. Even if she summoned a reaper somehow, she was in no state to kill it, and no real promise that it would work. She could see her own body vanishing pixel by pixel and the pain was becoming strong. Epius had at least given her something to help cut down the pain, but he told her, "I'm afraid Aether, that you won't have more than an hour if you are lucky. I don't know what it sped it up. I'm afraid...I have to say goodbye to you," Epius expression fell.
This was it. She wiped her eyes and nodded, "I need to go to him first before that happens." She got up and her AI hopped on her shoulder, clinging onto her, feeling like he could never save her. She went outside, Epius followed, and she had no idea where Leto was, or was it Soren? Wait...what...who were those people?
Epius picked up a scream, "I think I found them." He pointed the direction.
Aether ran forward, trying to remember but when she got there, she saw blood, more blood. Her eyes widened, her throat chocked up. She stared at the sword, back at Soren and the fear chilled down her, looking at him so afraiid. She didn't know who he was, but she recognized Leto. He was dead. She brought out her sword, looking ready to fight, "You killed him," She stated, tears flowing out, as she tried to swing the sword, but the pain spread and she end up just falling onto the ground, feeling limp, her body slowly vanishing away into the blue sky. She felt so scared... [i Where am I? ]
Epius caught up, in a bit of shock. The boy had really done it, he sacrificed someone. "I have to prepare." He mumbled, seeing as what was done was done.
When he saw her forehead crease, Soren felt like she was getting worse. She really was forgetting who he was and it upset him so much that she did. How could she forget? They should have gotten so much closer after last night. Why didn't they just go all the way? He could tell that she was stressing out and he didn't want her to. He rubbed the top of her head and then he left with Leto outside towards the forest.
They walked deeper into the woods and felt weird with Leto asking about all of these personal questions. He looked over at him [b [#F78F18 "Sounds? Last night? I think it was just because Aether was feeling sick. She was in pain so I had to help her relax"]] he just stated. He didn't need to know about how close they were at passing the limit.
[b [#F78F18 "We separated....but I found her again in Wonderland. I don't know, but if you found her so easily, you must know?"]] he asked him and then he told him about unpredictable things. [b [#F78F18 "It bothers and interests me. It's nice having someone different around for a change"]] he told Leto as they looked for this saber.
THe more he talked about how painful it will be for Aether, the more he he felt like he needed to do something. The Aether he knew wouldn't just give up. He knew how hard she wanted to try to stay together. That's what got her into this mess in the first place.
Leto was stating out some facts and he thought he was right. Everytime he was near Aether something bad did happen. [b [#F78F18 "Maybe you're right"]] he told him and then he thought about splitting up. Maybe they should cover more ground. [b [#F78F18 "Okay. I'll head down this path"]] he told Leto, splitting up from him. After they went in different directions, Soren stayed close and headed back to look over Leto.
He followed close behind, seeing Leto heading back for the castle. What was he doing? What if he was going to harm Aether? He couldn't let that happen. HE followed slowly and then he castle come into view. Soren ran towards Leto and then he pulled out his sword, stabbing him through his back from behind. He held his breath and then he pressed his sword into Let's back harder. [b [#F78F18 "Where do you think you're going?"]] he asked.
Aether's forehead creased. She did? [b [#00cca3 "I do?" ]] She couldn't recall it. She was about to draw her tablet out but she kept feeling the pain and she felt the fear crawl up her spine, ready to let her panic. She was going to lose Soren and Leto. She was going to lose herself and already was. She felt so confused. She hid her face in her arms and panicked for a good while before she decided she couldn't just sit here and do nothing.
She brought Epius upstairs with her and began to search things, needing to safe herself somehow. Epius helped her look through spells that would put it to a complete halt or other loops holes out of it.
[b "I heard you talking with her, and I heard you making sounds..." ] Leto mentioned, hearing on a little more than he should, but it was his job to observe. There was no way they had met once, because it was read that she definitely did die and they definitely went to separate worlds unless they found each other quickly again. [b "Really, only once? Didn't you separate and meet up again? Is there a trick to finding more people like us?" ]
[b "Doesn't something unpredictable bother you?" ] Leto raised a brow. Anyone can be afraid of losing a friend? He guessed, but most of them were AI's ,he didn't think any of them felt any real grief for AI's. They went through the forest and he honestly didn't know where they could find one, but maybe he could use a cheat to get just the potion instead, or something else...
Leto saw the panic in him but he didn't think he even ask the poor girl, [b "Did you ask her? It'll be extremely painful and she'll go through the process of losing her mind until she doesn't know who she is. It might even do un-repairable damage. It nearly did that to me... I did die once, but I came back. She'll come back too, but I noticed every time I get near someone like us, I nearly die. I think it's better if we all stay away from each other." ] He figured this was good advice.
Leto shrugged, [b "I don't know. I just happened to run in the same serv-world as her. Spotted her hair and figured it was her. I was right." ] He wasn't about to let on how he knew. [b "This isn't working... It doesn't look like she has much time, we should split up and look for the saber. We'll cover more crowd, deal?" ] Leto asked, and if Soren agreed, Leto would go a different direction and wanted to wait till Soren was out of sight, before he would go back and let Aether die less painfully for her to be revived again.
HE knew the virus was messing with her head because everything coming out of her mouth was a complete lie and he didn't know why she was saying it. Was Leto manipulating her somehow? He didn't really know, but he hoped the virus wasn't putting Leto thoughts in her head or something.
It made him really upset and sad that when he showed her the picture, he frowned even more. [b [#F78F18 "It's the truth. You even have it on your tablet"]]. Then he heard Leto saying lies and he knew he must have been trying to mess with AEther's memories somehow. If he really was trying to, he had to be bad. Soren wanted to make sure that it was just him and Aether.....no one else. Just when they were starting to get closer.
HE walked outside with Leto and he felt like he shouldn't be giving out any of this information at all. He'd probably try to tell Aether it was him instead or something. When he mentioned noise, Soren kind of froze. [b [#F78F18 "Noise? What kind of noise?"]] he wondered and then he shook his head. [b [#F78F18 "I only met her once. It was also in Wonderland"]] he told Leto and then he didn't say anything else.
They walked through the forest, Soren following him and not letting him get out of sight. [b [#F78F18 "Us? I mean, it's okay. It's a little weird since we can't predict one another"]] he told him and then he mentioned not needing Aether. His words made him upset, but he did have a point. [b [#F78F18 "Anyone can be afraid of losing a friend"]] he told him. Soren walked deeper into the forest and tried to look around for a saber.
There were no signs of any large animals, but when Leto said that he wanted to end it quickly, Soren panicked. [b [#F78F18 "WHy? Aether doesn't want it to end quickly. She wants to last as much as she can. That's just her"]] he told him, but at the same time, he really didn't want her suffering too much. He needed to find a way to save her and he was resorting to the only way he knew how.
[b [#F78F18 "How did you find Aether? How did you know where she was after all those years?"]]
Aether frowned, what did he mean she was confused? How could the virus make her memories up... "No...I'm sure I saw Leto." She nodded, unsure how Soren would think that they were there...but then she saw the picture. How? She didn't remember seeing Soren. "How?" She frowned and didn't get how this made any sense. What was real? She heard Leto and she remembered that, so she nodded and heard Soren say the same thing. She felt so confused.
Leto had Soren outside with him so he figured he could gather some information. "Really? I heard some noise the other night. It had to be you two." He mentioned. "I met her at Wonderland one day, but she doesn't remember me. But you said you met her twice, how did you meet her the second time? Is there a trick to do it?" He raised a brow. Leto looked down at the sword, "We need a saber's tooth. there should be one around, let's go find it." He lead the way and honestly didn't know where it was.
"Doesn't being around someone like us feel weird? Just a thought but, don't you find it easier to interact with AI's? They respond better, they'll normally do what you want. Do you really need her? It might be easier and hurt less if you weren't afraid of losing each other right?" Leto tried, hoping to convince that it wasn't that bad that Aether and him had to separate. Maybe he could summon a saber instead but he didn't think it was necessary for Soren to experience death either. He brought out a tablet he carried around and tried to put in the code but it wasn't working. It was hard to work in these types of worlds that even restricted him. "If we can't safe her...it's better to help her end it quickly," Leto mentioned, "So that she wouldn't have to suffer so much."
He wrapped his arms around her because he really wanted to comfort her. With the way she was acting, Soren could only assume that the virus was acting up again. He saw her covering her ears, but Soren was upset. He was calling out Leto because he was the last one to touch her before she started hurting.
Then she said something that made him really upset. Soren pulled back from her and then he frowned. [b [#F78F18 "No. You're confused. The virus is making you think things, but I know the truth"]] he held his tablet and showed her the picture of them on the roof of the building. He frowned and then he headed out the door with Leto. How could she remember Leto being there unless he did something to her? Who was he? How did they know where they were?
He heard her and it just made him feel really bad that he couldn't really do what she wanted. [b [#F78F18 "I'll protect you"]] he told her and then he followed Leto outside. When they headed towards the forest, he looked up at Leto [b [#F78F18 "I'd say we're close as any other person"]] he told him and then he wondered why he was asking so many questions. [b [#F78F18 "How do you know Aether? Where did you two meet?"]] he asked, wondering.
As they walked through the forest, he stepped on a few leaves and then he frowned. [b [#F78F18 "Just lead me to where we need to go"]] he told him and then he had his sword equipped and ready. He didn't know if Epius was right, but he trusted him more than this man. If he took this man's life, there could be a chance.
It was comforting to have his arms around her, but she also hated being potrayed as weak but the pain was getting to her head and she didn't know what to do about it. She covered her head, her ears for a while and then Leto was trying to shove the blame on Soren. But...she remembered things, things like seeing Leto instead of Soren. Seeing Leto going on adventure with her, going on the top of the building, but there were things that she couldn't remember, that she had just remembered recently.
Aether frowned, "No... you weren't. I remember now, it was Leto. I think you're confused." She remembered his face. She saw the boys get up but she didn't want to do just nothing, but the pain was catching up and she felt freaked out when she saw the black growing on her skin. She felt a kiss on her cheek. "I...don't remember that." She whispered, her eyes widening and her stomach sinking. Already...Already she couldn't remember. "I'm going to forget you," Her voice cracked, "Before..." She saw the little black parts on her skin was starting to vanish away into pixels. That was it. This was it.
She looked back at Soren and felt her chest ache, "I should have done more." Her voice cracked, knowing that this virus was catching up to her quickly, feeling tingles of pain and numbness where the pixels flew away.
"We'll get the cure, I promise Aether, like I promised to protect you," Leto replied, "We have to hurry up." He told Soren.
They head out and she stared down at the table. Her AI appeared and tried to distract her, and wiped her tears away. But she had enough crying and went with Epius to figure something out.
"It should have worked. IT should have stalled it, something is interfering," Epius explained to her.
Leto brought Soren out of the castle, toward the forest, "We need to find a dragon, we might have to go far...but, how close are you to Aether?" He asked, needing a few answers first, "How did you possibly meet her again?"
He then summoned a glass small vile of blood, "I already have the ingredient of the dragon, we'll just have to find the herb first. He did want to give Aether this poison he was creating, as fast as possible because even he didn't feel it was right to let the teenager suffer like this.
He didn't understand why Aether was under so much pain. It made him upset seeing her suffer from this virus because she really shouldn't be. All Soren wanted was to find a way to heal her because otherwise, he would just end up blaming himself. He went to the table and finished eating his jam and bread, looking at Aether and then seeing Leto touching her.
Aether soon fell into pain and Soren didn't get what was going on. She looked really confused and when she looked back at Soren, he frowned. She couldn't go out like this. It was getting worse and he hated to admit it, but he really didn't want her to stress and go out like this. It would only worry them.
He looked at Leto and suddenly grew angry and upset because he really believed it was his fault. When he said it was part his fault, Soren couldn't really sat anything because it was. She was trying to defend him and then that happened. He frowned and looked at Aether and then she said she didn't need anyone to look after her. He hugged her and felt really bad she was going through this. He'd try and make it easier on her somehow.
Then when she said something outrageous, Soren narrowed his eyes. [b [#F78F18 "What are you talking about Aether. I was at the top of the building with you? Don't you remember?"]] he asked, wondering what she was saying. He heard Leto saying they should go, so he stood up, feeling even worse now because her memory was going away. He leaned into Aether and then he kissed her cheek [b [#F78F18 "Aether, please don't forget me. I was there with you at the roof.....when we were kids. Okay?"]] he said sadly and then he headed out with Leto, thinking of a way to save her. This might be his only chance he could to take him down.
She didn't get how this pain was coming over her. She felt a huge load of stress dump on her, and the more it lasted, the more her mind went blank. She felt horrible and then she couldn't remember anything. She couldn't remember anything at all, just sitting in confusion for a second at where she was, who she was, and who were these people. But, she recollected it all too quickly. Her throat locked up and she got lost in her own ahead again. She didn't feel fine at all. But she couldn't depend on others to fix this problem for her. She always fixed things herself.
"I just-wanted to comfort her, that's it." Leto defended, and grew a little angry, "It's not like I did anything. I bet it was part of your fault that this happened anyway." He scoffed.
"No it wasn't." Aether shot a look, her body still trembling. But...it felt weird, looking at Leto. He was someone she knew apparently buts he wasn't familiar with him.
Epius nodded, "Will do."
'I don't need anyone to look after me," Aether added and felt Soren's arms around her but it was different. IT felt different. She felt something there, but she didn't get it. She tried to think of Soren but couldn't remember some things. The memories she recovered from when they were kids, suddenly she couldn't remember it. How did they meet?
"I don't think resting will help," Aether strongly spoke.
"It'll help less if you came." Leto mentioned, "We'll go find the ingredients..."
Aether nearly yelped when she saw her skin visibly turning into a empty blackness, reaching up to her elbow. She held her breath and then looked up at Leto, "Soren wasn't there with me at the top of the building ,you were." She stated.
Leto replied, "We'll talk after, let's go get those ingredients." Leto got up and waited for Soren to get up as well and go search for the ingredients that weren't going to do a thing but end it quickly. Aether let her head rest on the table, hiding her face. Maybe she could do something. Maybe she could find that reaper somehow. Maybe summon it somehow and find a way to kill it.
He could tell from the look on Epius' face that he was totally judging. He just wasn't verbal about it at all. He looked over at Aether and he didn't know if she got it, but it was really embarrassing. He just held his breath and then he helped Aether downstairs, taking a seat beside her and then having some toast and jam. WHen he saw Leto, he greeted him and then he just let out a soft sigh, wondering what solution he would use to try and save Aether.
When Leto said that he had a solution, Soren didn't know if he trusted him yet, but anything that would get them closer to saving Aether, he was willing to try. He heard the ingredients and then glanced at Epius, seeing him look like he was confused. Did this guy really know what he was talking about. [b [#F78F18 "I do want to save Aether"]] he told him and then he saw Aether in pain.
[b [#F78F18 "Aether....are you okay?"]] he tried to look over her, wondering what happened. It looked like Leto just touched her. He narrowed his eyes and then he shoved him back. [b [#F78F18 "What did you do? Why'd you touch her?"]] he asked, thinking that maybe he pinched her or something. He looked at her head and then he rubbed the top of her head. [b [#F78F18 "Are you sure Aether?"]] he asked, frowning when Leto held her hand. Why was she holding his hand all of the sudden?
He saw her trembling and then he hugged his arms around her. He looked back at Leto and then he just nodded. [b [#F78F18 "Epius, keep an eye on her. I'll help Leto look for a cure"]] he told him and then he watched Aether. [b [#F78F18 "You'll be okay. Just rest here first"]]
