Alya Star Part 2

Episode 51: Synicoth’s First Defeat

          “Well, here we are. Nexus. It’s inhabited with people like ourselves, only there are different kinds. Sort of like humans,” Alya said, typing on the keypad on John. “John, landing mode. Land us near Synicoth but far enough away so that she doesn’t detect us. Also so there’s not any people near by,” Alya said, looking at the screen.

          “Okay,” John replied. Pillars came out of the bottom of the ship. It flew over for awhile, but then it landed in a dry spot on the surface. It was desert like, but had grass growing in some spots and trees. But there was no oxygen. So Alya, Alial, and Geo all started glowing. It was only the outline of their bodies though.

          They flew out. (Alial was holding on to Geo.)

          “Synicoth should be a few minutes ahead,” Alya told Alial. Her hair was blowing back and was wavy.

          Synicoth was waiting up ahead. Alya and Alial both stopped at the same time.

          “Synicoth. Why did you turn against us?” Alya asked, tightly closing her eyes.      “You are the only ones left that stand between me and the universe’s destruction. I will destroy you,” Synicoth said evilly. Her eyes started glowing bright red.

          “Alial, stay here! Take this and you and Geo go find that piece for my computer! Go! Don’t worry about me!” Alya said. She tossed them the small computer that she used to find Zellial.

          “Okay,” Alial said, catching the computer. They flew off. Synicoth started to scream. Large pieces of the ground flew up and were broken into smaller pieces. <p>

          “Oh no! Wing… Fuscia…” Alya started to say her attack. Her wings grew really long and beautiful.

          “What the…?” Synicoth asked but rocks still flew up and crumbled.

          “Flash… Attack!” Alya cried. A purple and white flash came out of her hands. It hit the force field around Synicoth. At first it didn’t do damage.

                   Then the blast became bigger. The shield broke and the beam hit Synicoth.

          “No! I’ll get you in the next battle, Alya!” She disappeared after that.

          “Two more major battles before we can finally live in peace,” Alya said.

Episode 52: A Lot of Planning

          Alya, Alial, and Geo were all in the planning room again. Geo had never seen this room before, so of course he was looking around.

          “Now, she obviously has some machine that she uses in order to power up, otherwise, she can’t get strong enough between now and our next fight. Unless she’s a Super Asiania, just like we and our sisters are. Anyways, we have to become invisible and go into her ship and destroy that machine. The only problem is, we have to find it in time. She’s so powerful that she can detect us even if we are unseen. Geo, can you stay and pilot the ship, or you can put it on self pilot,” Alya asked him.

          “Sure, but what if Synicoth detects me instead of you?” Geo asked.

          “Oh, don’t worry. John will fly out of danger. You just have to tell him which way to turn,” Alya said, smiling, “let’s get a good meal and a good night’s rest so that we can do a lot of searching tomorrow. I have an outline of every Asiania ship there ever was created. That’s why I have a lot of computers around!” Alya winked.

          “Okay, I’ll go to my room now,” Geo said.

          “I’ll bring you some food,” Alial said, turning to him.

          “That’s kind of you, thanks,” he said and walked into the hallway. He then turned to the left and went into the bedroom.

Episode 53: Alial’s Discovery Part 1

          Alya was cooking a pot full of vegetables. She then chopped up some chicken and put it in the vegetables and sauce.

          “Smells good. What is it called?” Alial asked, walking into the little kitchen.

          “Humans call it chicken stew. Whatever that means. I’ve tried it at Jo’s place and it tasted pretty good to me,” Alya said, stirring the big pot of vegetables and chicken.

          In a few minutes the meal was done. Alial took some in a bowl to Geo. He was just sitting on his bed, thinking.

          “So, have you and Iana gone through any tough battles? You don’t have to answer if it’s too painful to talk about them. I’ll just…” Alial started.

          “No, that’s okay. I can tell you. One of my many memories was a fight between a monster, who tried to force us and our friends against each other. Iana fought with Amil. But I was fighting off demons who tried to take my sword. It took forever to fight them off. Amil finally decided to fight with Iana against a wolf demon who was also tricking us. It gets pretty complicated after that, so I’ll stop there,” Geo said, looking down and smiling sadly.

          “I’m sorry, I shouldn’t have asked! I’ll leave,” Alial said, getting up.

          “No, I could use some company,” he said. Alial blushed.

          “It must have been awful,” she said, almost crying.

          “Not really. We should get back to work,” he replied.

          “Right…” Alial said. There was an awkward silence as Alial read some pages on a computer.


Episode 54: Alial’s Discovery Part 2

          Alial was working on John while Alya was in her lab trying out some files in her new computer. But nothing came up.

          “Damn it. Why won’t it work unless I have these specific pieces?” Alya thought.

          “John, locate piece 0082 in quadrant 4082. It has to be there. I’ve looked everywhere else I could think of,” Alial said. A picture of a greenish blue planet appeared. Above it said “Eien” in gold letters. “It can’t be! Eien!” Alial said. Then it showed clips of the buildings, flowers, and so on. “It is definitely Eien. But I thought it was destroyed!” Alial said.

          “No, look at the other side of it as it turns,” John said. A large opening was in the side of the planet. And it was slowly regenerating. The question was unanswered. All she knew was that it was Eien. She then started crying. Alial ran into Alya’s room.

          “Alya! It’s Eien! The next piece is on Eien, our home planet! It wasn’t completely destroyed!” Alial cried.

          “What?! I’ll have to see this,” Alya said. The picture of the half of Eien was still on the screen. “It is Eien, our home. But, all the elves were destroyed by the Asiania’s. I’ll just have to destroy them all for what they did!” Alya cried. Tears fell down her face as she looked at the picture. She remembered playing when she was little. She would lay in the flowers and smell their sweet sent until it was night. She even sneaked out to look at the three moons that were rising.

          “We have to defeat Synicoth, some way,” she said, wiping her tears.

Episode 55: Alya’s Other Sister

          The truth was that the other side was being created by a girl. She was an Asiania too. You see, she was Alya’s sister, Ciel. She has four sisters. She was never mentioned though. Ciel is good at this time. She used energy from her fist to create Eien, or recreate, to look like it did many, many years ago, when Alya was small.

          “Alya, there is one life form on this planet, and it’s recreating the half of Eien. How would it be recreated on it’s own if there wasn’t?” Alial asked. Geo was now in front of the screen.

          “Why worry about that? Obviously whoever or whatever is regenerating it wants it to live on, or for us to live. If they just want to destroy it, what’s the point of remaking it? As long as it’s put to good use. This is our home. But, we’ve always lived with elves. Or, were the people really Asiania’s, I wonder?” Alya asked.

          “Could we maybe go explore? When I was with Iana, we explored many different parts of our world. But I never really explored any other worlds until Iana…until she disappeared. Maybe we could find some surviving inhabitants from the explosion,” Geo explained.

          “Sure. I have to find the next piece for my computer anyways. And, I could use my magic, and Alial could help me, to make the planet be more like it used to be,” Alya said, starting to cry and then wiping the tears away.

          “Plus, we don’t know if that Eien is even real. That person or thing could have created it all on it’s own. I just have a weird feeling,” Alial said.

          “No, this is Eien, you said it yourself. You were crying because of it. I was also. This is the real, true Eien,” Alya said.

          “Yes, Alya, come to me and see your beautiful planet. It is real, but I’m the one who created it! Come, meet your sister, Ciel. I love everything you hate. I will kill you Alya Star!” The figure sitting on a broken off lamp post said. Her face was dark and her eyes glowed red.

Episode 56: Arrival on Eien

          Alya couldn’t get to sleep that night. She kept thinking about Eien and what Alial said. She just couldn’t get over how she thought Eien was destroyed. She was in the battle ship when it happened. The planet just suddenly exploded. She was only a little girl and wasn’t Alya Shadow yet.

          She then started crying. Not because she found Eien, her home, but because she was actually an Asiania.

          “I have to think about the future, and not the past. But it’s just so horrible… that… I blank out every time I think about it. This has to be a bad dream, just all a dream!” Alya thought, lying in bed, crying.

          “But it’s not all a dream, Alya Star. Or should I say, Alya Shadow?” Someone called out with an evil voice.

          “Who are you?” Alya asked.

          “I am your sister, Ciel. You are going to see me after you battle Synicoth, and after you face your next two enemies. I will be waiting, Alya Shadow!” The voice broke out into an evil, low pitched laugh.

          “Alya, we’re almost to Eien. I can see it shining in the distance,” Alial said in the doorway.

          “Okay, I’ll be there in a little bit,” Alya said, looking down. A tear fell and shined on her star locket. She grasped it. It suddenly opened. A jewel was inside of it. It was also shaped like one of the flowers that grew only on Eien. The tear drop rose. Alya had seen roses on Earth and thought they were the most beautiful things in the universe. Then she realized, that these tear drop roses were more beautiful. <p>

          “Alial, are we in range to go down?” Alya asked, coming in the control room.

          “Yes, we are in orbit now. Can’t you see it?” Alial asked.

          “Yes. Geo, take hold of Alial’s hand. We’re going to teleport to the planet,” Alya said. She closed her eyes. Her hair started to float. A star appeared on her forehead. It shone brightly. They suddenly disappeared.

Episode 57: Nothing Remains

          A soon as they landed on the cold planet, Alya opened her eyes. It seemed like there was nothing there. But when Alya drew her sword, light flashed all around it. There were skeletons all around them. Millions of them. All of the elves had died from the blast that destroyed half of Eien. Tears fell down both Alya and Alial’s faces.

          “No, this can’t be real. There has to be someone alive. Alial, can you get a reading on the planet?” Alya asked. Her hand was shaking.

          “Yes. There is only one remaining living person here. It says her name is Ciel,” Alial said.

          “Ciel? Alial, I had a vision of her last night. She said she was our sister. And there was something else too. Let’s try to find her, since she seems to be doing well. Let’s also look for the piece for my computer,” Alya said, looking ahead of her.

          “Alya, there’s another piece somewhere also. Both of the pieces are here on Eien,” Alial said. She gave the small computer to Alya. It showed the two coordinates where the pieces were.

          “So, we won’t have to do anymore searching after this. How about we go back to Earth for a little while? We still have time, and I’m missing Jo. Geo, how about it?” Alya asked.

          “Sure, but what about your computer?” He asked.

          “Oh, I’ll fix it after we go to Earth. We don’t have to stay there a whole week. Just enough time to visit Jo. And Yamadi of course,” Alya said. Alial blushed, just thinking of him.

          Alya flew forward and so did Alial and Geo. The first piece was 150 miles ahead. They still had to fight Synicoth one more time before the final battle. Alya knew that she’d be waiting for them outside of Eien. Somewhere on their way to Earth.

          Even the beautiful flowers and trees of Eien were brown, the color of death. Alya started crying again. Tears fell back and disappeared behind her.

          “No, nooo!” Alya cried and flew faster as she saw all of the dead skeletons lying on the ground against the tall, round buildings.

Episode 58: Teardrop Roses

          Alya suddenly stopped. Ciel, it was her sister. A ghostly figure of her stood in the shadows. It then disappeared.

          “What’s wrong Alya? Are you all right?” Alial asked. She and Geo stopped. <p>

          “Nothing. I just thought I saw someone. I’m okay. Wait! Look over there!” Alya pointed to the spot where the figure of Ciel was. On the ground was a teardrop rose. It was glowing too. Light shown down on it.

          “Maybe…” Alya started to say. She flew over towards it.

          The star locket on her colar opened.

          “I knew it, my locket is the key to this planet’s existence,” Alya thought. She stopped flying right before the beautiful flower. The crystal on her locket shone white like it did before. The flower in front of her started floating. She then too, started to lift up off the ground. The star on her cheek started sparkling.

          “Oh, Alya,” Alial gasped. Geo had no clue what was going on. But he didn’t ask anything. The planet just suddenly turned back to normal. Even all the people were alive again. Alya fell over. “Alya!” Alial cried and caught her. “Alya! Alya! Wake up!” She said. Slowly, Alya opened her eyes. She then smiled weakly.

          “Eien. Our home, I was the key to make this planet whole again. It was my locket that did it,” Alya said, breathing hard.

          All of the people, elves, went back to their homes.

          “Wow, it’s so beautiful here. I wonder if we’re close to the first piece,” Geo said. He looked around.

          “Alial, how far are we from it?” Alya said, sitting up.

          “Well, we’ve gone fifty miles already, so 100 left to go. We have to turn a few times after fifty miles though,” Alial replied, looking at the computer.

          “Okay. Let’s keep going,” Alya said, standing.

Episode 59: Another Vision

          Alya, Alial and Geo flew forward. Alya suddenly received a series of images. All about her father. They were all good images.

          “Alya,” he said in one.

          “Father?” The little Alya called out. She ran to him, but he disappeared. “Father! Where are you? I’m scared,” Alya started crying. Her father suddenly appeared again.

          “Alya, I have to say goodbye. Your mother will take good care of you,” he said. He phased out.

          “No! Father!” The small Alya cried.

          Alya turned the corner with Alial and Geo.

          “Alya, it should be just ahead. In the supply base. There are at least ten of them on Eien. The other piece is in one of those,” Alial said.

          “Okay,” Alya said. Her face was pale, but she kept going. They reached the supply base. Alya and the two stopped and landed. They looked at each table, but couldn’t find it.

          “Alya, can I help you?” A man asked.

          “Iseli! I haven’t seen you since I was a little girl! How are you?” Alya asked.

          “I’m doing well. Who is this young man, Alial?” Iseli asked, looking at Geo.

          “He’s Geo Gaske. He’s on a search to find Iana Ilia, his wife, and he has the legendary light sword,” Alial explained.

          “Oh, do you need any help finding anything, Alya?” Iseli asked.

          “Yes, actually I was looking for piece 0082,” Alya said.

          “Yes, here it is. You can have it for free since I know you,” Iseli said, handing them a computer chip.

          “Thank you very much. We have to find the next one,” Alya said. She took the piece from Iseli.

          “Okay. Will I see you later?” He asked.

          “Yes, it’s a promise,” Alya said.

          As Alya and the others were flying back, Alya received another vision of Ciel. Only this time, she didn’t say anything. She was killing Alial with her sword. Blood was everywhere. Alya stopped when this happened.

          “Alya? Is something wrong? This happened twice now,” Alial said.

          “It’s Ciel. She’s even more evil than Synicoth I fear,” Alya replied.

Episode 60: Alya’s Eien Mother

          “I also just remembered. My mother who was taking care of me on Eien wasn’t Synicoth. She was a much younger woman. I think she was married to our father,” Alya said.

          “I thought Synicoth was,” Alial said, her eyes widened.

          “Yes, but I think because she was so selfish and had an evil heart, he married an elf. That’s a probably why I thought I was an elf, and not Alya Shadow, the Asiania,” Alya explained.

          “Oh, so is your mother still alive, or did she die before the explosion?” Alial asked.

          “Well, I don’t really remember too much about her,” Alya said.

          “Oh, let’s try and find her next. Do you remember where your house is?” Alial asked.

          “Yeah, I think so, it was in quadrant 040 and was in the fifth row,” Alya said.

          They flew back towards Alya’s old house at incredible speed.

          “I wasn’t really living here at all. It always was a home for me. The flowers and trees seem so familiar. I love it here and wish we didn’t have to fight anymore,” Alial thought, and kept flying.

          They came towards the house, a tall, round building with multiple windows. They landed before it. Alya walked up to the door and slowly turned the knob. The strange door magically opened.

          “Mother?” Alya asked.

          “Be right there,” someone said in the next room. Alya’s eyes widened. A tall woman came out of the room. She had lavender hair and red eyes. “Hello, Alya,” she said, smiling.

          “Mother! You’re still alive!” Alya said. Her mother walked up to Alya and put a hand on her shoulder.

          “Of course I am, you gave me life,” she said. Alya started crying. “Who are your friends, Alial?” The woman asked.

          “This is Geo Gaske and he’s looking for his wife and is helping us in our battles. I guess I’m your daughter too, huh?” Alial asked.

          “Yes, you, Alya, Aiya, and Amile all are my daughters,” Alya’s mother said. Her name was Aliya, which is where “Alya” came from.

          Suddenly, a dark shadow appeared behind them.

          “Alya,” it seemed to say. It then lunged forward. Everything froze. It slammed it’s arm right through Alya’s chest.

          “A… ly…a!” She cried. She turned gray and fell into Alya’s lap. There was a silence for a minute. The shadow disappeared and started laughing evilly.

          “Noooooo!” Alya cried. She held her lifeless mother tightly. Alial started to cry as soon Geo closed his eyes tightly. “No, mother… I know it had to be Ciel. Synicoth isn’t that powerful,” Alya said, getting up from the floor. She still had tears in her eyes, but her face was angry.

Episode 61: Happy and Sad Memories

          “Alya, the next piece is only a few miles from here. We could get there in a day if we go now,” Alial said, looking at the small computer.

          “Okay, let’s get going. Geo, coming with us?” Alya asked, solemnly.

          “Yes. I still have to find Ilia. Even if it kills me, I’ll find her,” Geo said.

          Alya, Alial, and Geo flew out of the house. Alya’s mother’s eyes were open, but were blank.

          “Alya,” she seemed to say, even though she was already dead. The three kept flying at an alarming speed. Alya kept thinking about that same scene over and over in her head. She did not cry though. Neither did Alial. But Alya did catch a glimpse of what Ciel looked like. She was even more evil than Alya imagined.

          “First my mother is Synicoth, than I have a sister who wants to kill us, what next?” Alya thought. But her thoughts did not keep her from reaching the last piece. Then she’ll have to fight Synicoth again. And then she would be able to see Jo again.

          Alya remembered the times she had with Jo; the movie, teaching her how to sing, cooking, and many other things. Tears then fell down her face. They kept flying in between all of the strange buildings. An elf stopped to watch them every once and awhile.

          “Alya, I’m here, Alya,” a deep voice called to her.

          “Father?” Alya asked. She stopped suddenly.

          “Alya?” Alial asked.

          “I just thought I heard father! He’s here! I can feel it!” Alya cried.

          “Alya wait! It’s a…” Geo tried to warn her, but she flew around a corner.

          Her father was standing in front of her.

          “It’s not possible, you’re dead. How can you be standing there in front of me?” Alya asked.

          “Because, I am really Ciel!” “He” said and flew forward and grabbed her by the neck. He, or rather she, chocked Alya until Alial came around the corner. The Ciel dropped Alya and disappeared.

          “Alya, are you okay?” Alial asked. She and Geo ran up to her. Alya coughed a few times.

          “I’m fine. How could I be so blind? Damn it!” Alya cried.

Episode 62: Visit from the Past

          “Let’s keep moving. I want to find that next piece right away so that we can go to Earth. I miss Jo,” Alya said.

          “Yeah, I miss Yamadi too,” Alial said.

          They kept flying forward. Alya’s thoughts fixed on her father and Ciel. Of course she was thinking about how she was going to defeat Synicoth. But she knew that eventually she will have to face Ciel. How did she know what Alya’s father looked like, even if Ciel was her sister?

          “I thought Aiya, Amile, and Alial were my only sisters. That’s strange. Maybe she’s not really my sister,” Alya thought.

          Suddenly a light flashed in front of them. There was a pond also directly in front of them in the ground. And a ghost appeared of a young Alya, floating above the water.

          “Alya, what’s going on? Who’s that?” Alial asked. Geo wondered the same thing, but kept quiet.

          “That is me, when I was a child,” Alya said. Her eyes widened as soon as she saw the small Alya.

          “No, I am not you. You have become different. You have forgotten me, who you are,” little Alya said.

          “No! I haven’t forgotten who I am! I am an elf! I belong here, with my family!” Alya cried, tears ran down her face.

          “No, you have forgotten. You are an Asiania. And you know that. You’re just afraid, afraid of the truth. Goodbye, Alya Star. Or should I say, me?” The small Alya floated backwards and disappeared.

          “No!! I won’t believe it! I am an elf! I am!” Alya cried.

          “Alya, what is this place?” Alial asked, looking around.

          “It’sa place that I used to play in when I was a girl. That’s probably why that image came to me,” Alya explained.

          “Oh, I see. It’s kind of like a visit from the past, only it was you who gave you the message,” Geo said.

          “Yes. I have to fight Synicoth two more times! I will not lose either! Alial, you must stay our of these battles, okay?” Alya asked. Alial’s eyes widened.

Episode 63: Alya’s Teardrop

          “My heart’s pounding like it’s on fire,” Alya said. They started flying forward again.

          “Because you are…” someone started to say. But it was gone. Alya knew it was her sister, Ciel. She had another vision of her saying that, but then it disappeared. Alya realized she was standing still not and started to fly again.

          “I’m worried about Alya. She seems like she’s off in another world. But she doesn’t want to tell me what’s going on. And why did she say to stay out of the battles? It’s not like I can be killed easily. She’s too worried about me,” Alial thought. Geo smiled at Alial and she smiled back.

          “Alya, you’re Asiania. Didn’t you know that?” Someone called out to her. It was the same voice as before. Alya was frozen. Alial stopped too.

          “Alya?” She asked.

          “Don’t call me that. I’m Alya Shadow, the Asiania!” Alya turned around and her eyes glowed red. She turned into Alya Shadow.

          “Light beam!” Geo cried and pulled out the light sword.

          “I have an idea Geo! Can I use the sword?” Alial asked.

          “What are you planning to do with it?” He asked, handing it to her.

          “I’m going to try a healing spell that worked last time on her, but I’m going to use the sword to amplify the spell,” Alial said. Alya Shadow completely turned black. “Super… Love…” As Alial said this the sword started glowing red instead of blue. “Attack! Turn my sister back to…” Before Alial could finish, Alya drew the black power sword and flew at Alial. The swords clashed. Alial dug her feet into the ground.

          “Normal!” Alial cried. She slashed the sword away and a streak of light went into Alya’s chest. Her entire body started to glow. Her locket suddenly opened and the teardrop crystal shone.

Episode 64: The True Alya Star

          The locket shot out rays of light and seemed to light up the whole planet. Eien’s two moons were rising and a ray of light shot out between the two moons. Then Alya opened her eyes and her dress appeared again.

          “Alya, are you Alya now?” Alial asked.

          “Of course I am. I am the true Alya Star now. I can’t turn back into Alya Shadow anymore. Thank you Alial, and Geo,” Alya said.

          “Let’s get going. The next supply base should be past a few more turns. It will take us awhile if you’re not telling me something,” Alial said.

          “Why would I not be telling you something, my sister? I’m fine, don’t worry. It’s just that I miss father and mother. My Eien mother that is. Let’s get going okay?” Alya asked.

          “All right,” Alial and Geo said. They flew forward.

          Meanwhile, Synicoth was sitting in her chair again, only this time, she wasn’t attached to anything.

          “Computer, go towards the planet Earth, but wait in the crystal formations. Wait for my command to fly out,” Synicoth said. The ship made a little bleeping noise and started to turn a little. “Alya, Alial, Amile, Aiya. Why did I even create you? Why? You’re the one’s who put me through this. I was torn apart by the elves. Ana, my heart was broken, or turned to stone by my own husband. All because of you, Alya. You don’t know what you’re up against,” Synicoth said. Her eyes glowed red as a shadow covered her.

Episode 65: Eien’s Past

          “Hey, Alya. Do you want to know what happened in the war between the elfins and Asiania’s? Father told me everything before he died and didn’t have enough time to tell you,” Alial said.

          “No, I know it already. My Eien mother explained it to me even before it happened. She had the ability to tell the future. I think I have some of that ability too.” Alya had a tear in her eye as she said this.

          “Oh, then you know how it was on Eien when the war was going on. All the lives that were lost, and the death of our father. I still remember exactly what happened to him. I… couldn’t do anything. I was right in front of him but I was so small and not strong enough. He had to separate us so that I could train. You were still small also.” Alial kept flying forward.

          “Weren’t we like this thought? I thought we were this old to begin with. I don’t remember much about my childhood. Even though I remember my Eien mother taking care of me,” Alya said.

          “No. We were small because I remember standing in front of our father. I don’t remember much either except that and the start of the war against the elfins,” Alial said.

          “Okay. How far are we from the supply base?” Alya asked.

          “Well, we only have a few turns to go around, but they’re miles away. At this speed we will reach it in exactly three hours.”

          “Okay. Geo, are you okay back there?” Alya asked.

          “Yes. I’m a little weak from not eating in awhile, but I can keep going,” Geo said, smiling.

Episode 66: Synicoth’s Destroying Dream

          “Alya, wake up Alya. Your sister is here,” someone called out to her. She was lying on a cold floor of rock and mist was covering it. Blackness was all around her. Alya opened one eye and then both eyes were open slowly. “Good, you’re awake. I’m Ciel, your sister. Why can’t you not love our other sisters? I hate all three of them. But, I do love you,” Ciel said.

          “What… what are you saying? If you truly love me, than you should love my sisters also,” Alya said, weakly, getting up.

          “Oh, I am your sister, and I truly do love you. I’ll show you,” Ciel said. She floated gracefully to Alya. Then Ciel put her arms around Alya and kissed her gently on the cheek. Alya’s eyes widened and she froze. “You see, I wasn’t lying. I do love you, Alya. You’re the only person I love and Eien is the only planet that I love. Please don’t think I’m evil just because I don’t love our sisters. Please, Alya, after we’re done battling Synicoth, come to Eien again…” Ciel said, smiling. Suddenly, Synicoth appeared and sliced her sword right through Ciel. “Alya!” Ciel screamed and she disappeared.

          “No! Damn you, Synicoth!” Alya cried. A sphere of light formed in her hands. A ray of gold light shot out at Synicoth.

          “That won’t work!” Synicoth said and slashed it away with her sword. The light went back at Alya and struck her. Blood came out of her mouth. Alya’s eyes grew blank and she fell when the light disappeared. An evil laughed filled the whole planet.

          Alya jerked up in bed.

          “No!” She gasped. Sweat ran down her face. She remembered the dream again for a second. Ciel getting killed, and then herself being shot by Synicoth’s beam. Then she saw an image of Jo on Earth. “Jo… it was a dream. I’m still alive. And I have to kill Synicoth so I can go back to Earth,” Alya thought.

Episode 67: Fate Lies Ahead

          “Alya, are you all right? You look like you haven’t gotten much sleep lately,” Alial said. They were in one of Eien’s “hotels.”

          “Well, if you want to know the truth, I’ve just been thinking about my past. I just had a dream that Synicoth… killed me. I don’t really know what fate lies ahead of me, but somehow… I don’t like this feeling. What if my dream will come true?” Alya asked.

          “Don’t think that. It probably was just because you were thinking too much. Please cheer up and get some rest. I’ll make Geo a meal so that you won’t have to,” Alial said.

          “Okay. Be on a lookout though. Someone could come after us while we’re here,” Alya said, walking off.

          As soon as Geo and Alial were alone, Alial blushed. She knew that Iana was already married to him, and she also liked Yamadi, but she couldn’t help it, he was just too handsome.

          In about an hour or so, Alya woke up with sweat running down her face.

          “No, not again, that same dream. Why is this happening? Why am I the only one to have these dreams?” Alya thought. She went into the room where Alial and Geo were talking. Alial laughed and so did Geo. Alya smiled.

          “Alya, you’re awake. We were just talking about Geo’s past.”

          “Oh? Is that all  you were talking about?” Alya asked.

          “Yes, what else would we talk about?” Alial replied, blushing and waving her hands back and forth.

          “Oh, well, we’ll have to talk about what’s up ahead. We have to sooner or later,” Alya said.

          “Okay. Why hasn’t Synicoth attacked us yet?” Alial asked.

          “I was thinking that as well,” Alya said, putting her hand up to her chin.

          “She could be planning things out. Like, for instance, preparing for battle,” Geo said.

          “Yeah, maybe. But she usually has everything planned out already. I don’t understand,” Alya said.

          “That’s a first,” Alial said. They all laughed.

Episode 68: The Second Supply Base

          “Alial, get me the precise readings on that next supply base,” Alya said.

          “All right…” Alial quickly typed on the computer. They were outside of the “hotel.” “Okay, I have them. It is just five miles ahead. We have to go straight for three and then turn to the right. We should see it up ahead,” Alial said.

          “Okay. Geo, look out for any kind of enemies that Synicoth might try to pin against us. I’ll be on the lookout for Ciel. And, Alial you will tell us when to turn. We can’t miss the base,” Alya said.

          The flew through the Asiania’s. They all seemed frozen, like they were created or something. It all seemed too easy to find Eien again. Alya just didn’t understand. Ciel could have just created the whole planet and she just threw off Alya’s readings.

          The supply base was just around the corner as Alial said it was.

          “Alya! There it is! Do you see it?” Alial asked.

          “No, not really… where is it?” Alya asked. There was nothing there except a pool of water with a statue in front of it.

          “Oh, it’s here. I know this place. Follow me over to the pool,” Alial said. She smiled at the memory of her playing there when she was a little girl. Alya had a look on her face like Alial was crazy.

          “But, Alya, there’s nothing here,” Geo whispered. They now floated over the pool.

          “Alya, open your locket. Then dangle it over the middle,” Alial said.

          “All right,” Alya said, opening the locket. The jewel started to glow. The water rippled and then it seemed like the whole place had turned into water. “What’s happening?” Alya asked. Suddenly a supply base appeared. Even people were walking around in it.

          “Excuse me, can I help you?” A woman asked. It wasn’t Synicoth, Alya knew that just by looking at her. She was tall and slender with black hair.

          “Yes, we were looking for piece 1808, if you have it,” Alya asked, smiling.

          “Yes, we do, right this way young ladies and gentleman. By the way, are you from Eien? I don’t think I ever saw you before,” the woman who looked like she was about thirty, asked.

          “You could say that, I’m Alya and this is Alial,” Alya said. Geo introduced himself.

          “I am Geo Sana. I’m from Earth, a planet far from here,” Geo smiled.

          “I’ve heard of Earth. They have good people there,” the woman said, smiling. Geo smiled again.

Episode 69: The Last Piece

          “Here it is, piece 1808. I’ll except fifteen silver pieces from you, since you’re so kind. We don’t get many nice bargainers here, since it’s a hidden place. See, look over there,” the woman said. There were two people pushing and punching each other.

          “Hey! You two, stop this! There’s no reason to fight each other!” Alya cried. She flew in between the man and woman.

          “Damn you! You don’t deserve to live, woman!” The man yelled past Alya. She was beginning to regret coming between them. The woman charged at the man with a fist. Alya jumped in front of the man. The woman punched Alya in the face before she could put up a force field. It hit her hard and she moved back. Blood dripped down her chin. She wiped it off.

          “All right, you looking for a fight? Here’s one right here!” She said and raised her hand and opened it. A small lightning bolt hit the woman’s leg. “You want one too? Unless you solve whatever  problem you were “discussing,” you will get it! And, anyone else in this base!” Alya cried. Everyone stopped fighting.

          “Alya, are you all right?” Alial asked.

          “Yeah, she was pretty strong. And stupid, I might add,” Alya said, more quietly.

          “Forget the silver pieces, you can have it for free. You really changed our base,” the woman who gave Alya the piece, said.

          “Oh, thank you! And no need to thank me, you were right about the hard bargainers. They don’t seem to know the word compromise,” Alya said.

          The three flew off. The woman waved. They got back to the small circle and the monument. Alya opened her locket. The place wavered and it was back to a pool of water.

Episode 70: Back to Space

          “Come on, let’s head back to the ship to make some plans. Let’s go!” Alya said.

          “Okay, where did you leave it?” Alial asked.

          “Oh, the landing dock, don’t you remember?”

          “Oh yeah…” Alial smiled.

          The three flew back to the ship and it took them about an hour. Geo was quiet the whole time until they got back there.

          “Hey, Alya, you should try to locate Iana. I’m sure she’ll be great help to you, from my experience. Plus, I don’t know how to find her,” he said.

          “Well, I’d like to make plans first and finish the second to last battle with Synicoth. I’m sorry, but I don’t know where to begin looking. I don’t really know if my computer is capable of finding people who are traveling through space. I’ll tell you if I find anything,” Alya said.

          “Alya! Look at this! The photo of Ciel isn’t there. It’s there, but then let me go to full scan,” Alial said. Alial typed on the pad of the computer. It came up with the outline of Ciel. “She’s almost like a holographic image. Which means, either the real Ciel died in the war or she is somewhere else waiting for us to come to her,” Alial said. They walked into the ship.

          “But, she told me that she was on Eien or was going to be. Yeah, so she would be somewhere else in the universe. Good work, Alial,” Alya said. Alial smiled but then turned to a control panel by a small screen on the panel.

          “Should we speed up the engines?” Alial asked.

          “No, we’re just going to orbit Eien for now. We’ll leave tomorrow. We are going back towards Earth. She said she’d be around there somewhere,” Alya said.

          “Okay. Pulling up the stairs, starting engine… power is full, lift off!” Alial said, pushing a red button on the panel. She could have just told John, but he was taking sort of a “vacation” as far as computers go.

          “All right. Once we’re out of the atmosphere, point the ship towards Earth, and orbit Eien slowly,” Alya said. Geo just listened and watched out the window. He didn’t know anything about ships.

Episode 71: Plans and Synicoth

          “Alya, how are we going to battle Synicoth this time? Last time I remember it was a sword fight,” Alial said.

          “Yeah, probably just magic. I mean, what else would we use?” Alya asked.

          “I don’t know, but maybe she will send out one of her minions or something. If she has minions,” Alial said, putting a finger on her cheek.

          “Yeah, maybe. But Synicoth’s sisters were killed. And I think that’s all she had. Unless Ciel comes after us, or at least the hologram of her anyways,” Alya said.

          “Oh, I heard of a technique used by elfins long ago that they still use today. It’s called ‘Mind Combat.’ You sit in a certain position, and battle each other in your mind. I wonder if she’ll use that,” Alial suggested.

          “Maybe, but I don’t think she’ll go very far without actually trying to kill me. She’s revengeful and that wouldn’t last too long, but good idea. It’s a new technique that I’ve never heard of,” Alya said. She got up and started walking. Well, her feet were just above the ground and her wings were spread out.

          “Where are you going, Alya?” Alial asked.

          “Oh, just to the control room, and to check on Geo. He’s been so sad without Iana around,” Alya said, turning her head around. Alya floated out the door.

          Geo was in his room, of course thinking about Iana. He looked like he was about to cry, or had been crying. He rubbed his eyes gently when he heard Alya knock on the door.      

          “Come in,” he said. Alya opened the door.

          “I hope I’m not interrupting you,” Alya said.

          “No, I was just thinking. What did you need from me?” Geo asked.

          “Oh, nothing really, just to know how you are doing,” Alya said.

          “I’m a little sad, but fine. If you need me, just knock,” Geo said, smiling.

          “Okay,” Alya smiled and floated out.

Episode 72: Synicoth vs. Alya/3rd Battle

          “Alial, is there any sign of Synicoth yet?” Alya asked. They now were far away from Eien and heading towards Earth.

          “No. There is a life sign approximately twenty miles from here, and it’s almost directly on Earth. It’s just two miles away from it. We don’t want to be too close to Earth otherwise, we might endanger Jo, Yamadi, and all of its people,” Alial said, looking at the screen on the control panel.

          “All right. Take us there, Alial,” Alya said, “Geo, can you come with me to the gym? Alial, keep on the look out and keep going towards Earth.” Geo followed Alya into the gym.

          “Geo, can you draw the light sword?” Alya asked. They were standing in the middle of the gym.

          “Sure. Light sword!” Geo cried. He pulled out his light sword.

          Okay, be careful because I’m going to try the Sword of Fuscia Darkness attack on it,” Alya said.

          “Well, why don’t you hold the sword then? It will probably work a lot better if you did it,” he said, giving her the glowing sword.

          “All right. Stand back. Fuscia attack times 1,000!” Alya cried. A huge cloud of purple filled the top of the room. Geo backed up. Purple swirls came down around the sword and turned it purple and black. “Sword of darkness! Except me and obey my command! Light sword, except this other sword, and except me!” Alya cried. The sword got about five feet tall and sharp. A sphere was floating around the room. Alya breathed in heavily as she tightly gripped the sword. When the sphere floated by her she floated up towards it at incredible speed. She swung the sword at it and it clashed with the sphere. Alya screamed and moved forward and sliced the sword down and through the sphere.

          “Alya! Synicoth is here! She came after us!” Alial cried. She came running in to the gym.

          “What? I’ll be right there,” Alya said. The sword turned just purple and then back to normal. “Here Geo, but can I use it if I have to?” Alya asked.

          “Yes, that was great! Almost like the Tomorrow’s Legacy,” Geo said.

          “Yeah, it takes a lot of energy too. Let’s go,” Alya said.

Episode 73: Synicoth vs. Alya Third Battle Part 2

          “Alya, come to my ship. We will battle there, and come alone,” Synicoth said. She was on the screen of John. He had decided to turn back on to help. Synicoth was sitting in the same chair, but without the cords attached to her. Alya just nodded. Geo handed her the light sword and his belt.

          “Thank you. See you in a little bit,” Alya said.

          “But Alya! Won’t you need any help?” Alial asked. Alya winked.

          “I’ll be all right. Just like I was in the other two battles.” Alya walked out of the room.

          When she got to the hatch that opened a doorway to space, she floated just above the ground and a glow outlined her body and sparkled. Her hair floated up as she closed her eyes. She suddenly disappeared. Alial stared in the direction where Alya had disappeared.

          “Alya…” Alial thought.

          Inside Synicoth’s ship it was a twisted maze. It looked like a golden palace. There was hidden technology and weapons inside the walls. Alya knew, how though she did not know. Alya flew up the spiral staircase. She did not know why she knew Synicoth was at the top either. She felt like she was about to cry. But she didn’t know why that was either.

          “That’s right, come to the top of my “palace.” I’m amazed you knew exactly where I was. But, it will be over soon,” Synicoth said. She was still sitting in her chair. Her eyes glowed and an evil aura surrounded her.

          Alya reached the top of the stairs. There was a large door with carvings of dragons on each side of it.

          “Weird place,” Alya thought, looking back towards the staircase. Alya opened the doors and inside there were rows of candles on each side of her on tall carved, twisting, candle holders. Alya blinked and walked forward, her wings were spread out. The candle light shone on her beautiful white wings.

          “Alya, so, we meet again,” Synicoth said, evilly.

          “Synicoth, why don’t you love us? We’re your daughters after all. And if you hate us so much, then why did you even create us?” Alya asked.

          “Because I loved your father and he wanted to have daughters. Let’s fight, draw your sword!” Synicoth said.

          “All right. The sword I’ll be using will be the light sword!” Alya cried.

          “What the?” Synicoth cried. Alya flung her cape back and took out the sword. She felt kind of silly saying that and holding Geo’s sword.

          Alya slashed the light blade at Synicoth’s black sword.

          “Even the light sword is no match for my evil sword!” Synicoth said.

          “We’ll just see. Fuscia attack, times 1,000!” Alya cried. The sword burst into a flame of purple as a cloud formed below the ceiling.

          “What? What are you doing?” Synicoth asked. She backed away.

          “Sword of darkness! Obey my command! Accept the light sword and me!” Alya cried. The sword grew larger and was now black with a purple outline.

          “Damn, that’s powerful!” Synicoth said. Her eyes started glowing red. Suddenly, Ciel appeared in front of Alya.

          “Ciel?” Alya asked.

          “Yes. I am Ciel. Don’t die, Alya. Synicoth is about to do something evil. I can’t tell what, but I know it can kill you if you don’t stop her now. Please do it, Alya. Don’t let Synicoth kill you,” Ciel said. Alya’s eyes widened and she stood frozen for a moment until another bright light flashed.

          “I have to go for now, I’ll see you face to face after the final battle,” Ciel waved as she seemed to shrink.

          “Why are you just standing there?” Synicoth yelled. Alya readied the sword. This time she didn’t have to say any words, the sword just turned purple and black.

Episode 74: Alya’s Third Victory

          “Synicoth, die!” Alya cried. She floated forward fast and the two swords clashed. This time, Synicoth’s sword shattered into a thousand tiny pieces.

          “What the hell is going on?” Synicoth cried. Alya’s wings spread to full length. Alya ran forward and shoved the energy sword through Synicoth’s stomach. Blood poured out of her mouth. “No!” Synicoth cried. She disappeared, but Alya knew she’d be back.

          Alya walked up to the chair. The chords were dripping with some kind of substance. A gel of some kind. Alya dipped her finger in it. It started glowing on her finger.

          “Weird, I’ll have to analyze this stuff,” Alya said out loud. She disappeared.

          Inside her ship, John was on screen.

          “Alya! You’re all right! You did well, we watched from John. But why were you standing still for five minutes?” Alial asked.

          “I had another vision with Ciel. John, open microscopic window. I need to analyze something,” Alya said. John opened a disk slot and a slide was on it. Alya smeared the gel that was on her finger on to the slide. She pushed a button and the disk slot closed. Alial and Geo watched from behind.

          On screen it showed a blob of gel. Alya made it zoom in, until one could only see a single cell. Alya’s eyes widened.

          “What’s wrong, Alya?” Geo asked.

          “It says that this is my cell, but how can that be? Oh my… god! Amile, Aiya, Ciel, and your cells, Alial, are here too. But why? Is this the source of Synicoth’s power? Why would she use our cells?” Alya asked, still frozen. Alial stood frozen too.

Episode 75: The Journey Back to Earth

          “Alya, I think, maybe it’s because we are the strongest or some of the strongest fighters in the universe. Maybe, she wanted to become stronger than all of us,” Alial said.

          “Yes, and before she created us, she took some of our cells to put in that substance to get stronger. Damn that Synicoth! If only I knew what she has planned for the last battle, I could prepare better,” Alya said, clenching her fist.

          “No one knows except Synicoth. We can’t do anything about that,” Alial said.

          “I know!” Alya said, slamming her fist into the control panel.

          “Try to calm down, Alya. We’re close to Earth, it won’t be long now,” John said.

          “Okay. I’m going to go train. Alial, will you join me?” Alya asked.

          “Sure,” Alial said and followed her out. Geo stayed in the control room.

          Alya was now in the gym and had her hands together, wrists touching.

          “Get ready, Alial,” she said. She moved her hands back slowly. “Light, wind, lend me your spirit! Come into my hands! Ha!” Alya cried. She quickly opened her eyes. Alial put her arms up and crossed them. A blast of light came shooting out. Alial stood in a circle barrier with her arms crossed. She wasn’t even scratched or breathing hard.

          “Good work. Now, try the Fuscia Attack times 1,000 on me,” Alya said.

          “Okay. Fuscia…” Alial started. Light slashed out of her hands. “Attack times 1,000!” Alial cried.

          A beam of purple light flew out of Alial’s palms. It hit Alya. Blood came out of her cheek and arms. She screamed.

          “Alya! I didn’t mean to, are you all right?” Alial asked. Alya breathed heavily and said,

          “I think so, I have to train harder this time,” Alya said, wiping her cheek.

Episode 76: Arrival at Earth, Again

          “Alya, we’re entering Earth’s atmosphere,” John said. The ship shook and looked like a comet falling on Earth.

          “Can we try and land in the park that we always did?” Alya asked. She had to almost yell because of the noise.

          “Yes, we are there, Alya,” John said. The ship landed in the same spot that they always did. The trees blew back as they landed. To Alya’s surprise, Jo was standing there. He had his back turned until he heard the door open and Alya’s voice.

          “Jo?” Alya floated into his arms. They kissed. Geo envied them a little because he still didn’t have Iana since she was still traveling the universe somewhere. He clenched his fist and Alial noticed it. She felt sorry for him.

          “Alya, I just knew you would come back. So, I went to the park, where we first met, to think of you and wait. What a coincidence,” Jo said, hugging her again.

          “Oh, Jo. It’s so good to see you again,” Alya said.

          “Oh, Alial, Yamadi’s waiting for you at my apartment,” Jo said, smiling. Alial blushed.

          The four got into Jo’s car after Geo’s introduction and he drove to his apartment. When Jo unlocked the door, Yamadi was standing there waiting for Alial.

          “Yamadi!” Alial said. She hugged him tightly and a tear fell down her cheek.

          “I’ve missed you, Steph. And this time, I never want to not see your pretty face if you go away,” Yamadi said, holding out a camera.

          “What’s that?” Alial asked.

          “It’s called a camera. Remember the picture of Jo and me? Well, that’s what it does,” Yamadi said.

          “Oh, this is Geo Sana, Yamadi. He is a swordsman,” Alya said.

          “Wow, hi,” Yamadi said, shaking hands with Geo. “Hey, can you take the picture, Geo?” Yamadi asked, “you do know how it works, right?”

          “Yes, I’ve done pictures with Iana before, so, I know,” Geo said and took the camera. Yamadi and Alial stood next to each other, and next to them were Alya and Jo.

          “Say cheese!” Geo said. He held up the camera to his eye and got ready to push the shutter.

          “Cheese!” They all cried, smiling. Geo snapped the shutter.

Episode 77: Alya’s and Alial’s Driving Lessons?

          “Crystal, what were doing this whole time? Tracking down a new enemy?” Jo asked.

          “Yes. Her name is Synicoth and she is my and Steph’s mother. I’ll explain later,” Alya said, closing her eyes.

          “All right. Hey, it’s almost time for dinner. Want to go out?” Jo asked.

          “Sure!” Alya and Alial said. They went down into the parking lot and got in Jo’s car. They drove to a fancy restaurant. (Alya had a different dress on and the Japanese voice and so did Alial.)

          “Hey, Crystal, Steph, why don’t you two take driving lessons?” Jo asked.

          “What? Us? But we don’t know how to drive,” Alya said.

          “Oh, don’t worry. Trust me, it’s nothing. I’ll teach you the road signs and signals. You have to take a test before hand in order to get in,” Jo said. Yamadi laughed. Alial wondered what was so funny.

          “Jo had to take his twice in order to get in,” Yamadi said, laughing. Alya started to laugh.

          “You had to take yours five times, baka,” Jo said, smiling. Yamadi quit laughing, Alial grinned.

          After dinner, Jo drove to the driver’s school.

          “First, you have to sign your full name here. Then you go in the second room to take the test. Remember what I told you,” Jo said. They were now inside a tall building with a desk in front and had two hallways on either side of it. Alya signed her name as Crystal Stelly and Alial signed as Steph Stelly. They walked off down the hall to the left and entered the second door.

          The whole test took an hour. Crystal and Steph were done first, of course, in ten minutes! The instructor looked at them like they were from outer space. (Which they were!)

          “Are you sure you’ve never learned how to drive before?” The man asked.

          “Yes, we’re sure. This is our first time. Where we come from there aren’t many cars around,” Crystal said.

          “All right. You’re lesson begins tomorrow at noon, sharp,” the man said, smiling.

          “Okay, we’ll be there,” Alya said. Alial followed her out.

          “So, how did you do?” Jo asked, as they came out.

          “Well, we passed the first part!” Alya said happily.          

          “Good job. The next step I will show you two,” Jo said, smiling.

Episode 78: Alya a.k.a. Speed Demon?

          At noon, sharp, Alya and Alial were standing outside the building again in a line with some other students who passed.

          “All right, now, each of you will be given a driving instructor. Crystal, you will have me, as instructor, Steph you will have Mrs. Koller…” the man had a clip board in his hands and was reading the rest of their names. Alial got into the car with Mrs. Koller. Alya and Mr. Crei got into a different car. Alya checked the rear view mirror. Then she put her seat belt on and moved the stick up to drive. The man just sat there and starred at her. Alial did the same. Then Alya pushed down slowly on the gas pedal. The car slowly started moving around the track. Alial soon followed her.

          Suddenly, Alial went past her at incredible speed.

          “What the…? Hey! I’ll get you, Alial!” Alya cried. She stepped harder on the gas pedal. They were goind eighty miles per hour.

          “Whoa! Slow down!” Mr. Crei cried. Alya only kept her eyes on the road in front of her. Soon, Alya was next to Alial. Mrs. Koller was already passed out the first time Alial had sped up.

          “You think you can beat me, Alial?” Alya yelled over the noise. Alya pushed the pedal all the way down. She went flying around the corner. Both Alya and Mr. Crei screamed. Alya stopped suddenly. The tires screeched. Jo and Yamadi were standing in the sidelines, wide-eyed.

          Alya and Alial got out. (All of the other students starred at them.)

          “Well, since you’re new here, I’ll let you pass this course. Be here tomorrow at three this time…” the man said, swaying back and forth.

          “Thank you!” Alya and Alial said.

          “Whoa, Crystal, you were going a little too fast!” Jo said.

          “Well, Steph challenged me, so, I got her back,” Alya said.

Episode 79: The Next and Final Test

          “Crystal, you ready? We have to leave in a half an hour,” Alya asked.

          “Yes, I’m ready to get my license. Mr. Crei said it was our last test before we get our license,” Crystal said.

          The instructor, Mr. Crei, said it was the last test before getting the license.

          “I sure hope we pass, the way we drove yesterday!” Alial said, laughing.

          “Well, you were the one who sped up! You challenged me, so, I had to race you. Yes, I started out wrong, but then I got the hang of it,” Alya said, smiling.

          Jo, Yamadi, Alial, and Alya go into Jo’s car. (Geo was back at the apartment sleeping, even though it was noon.) The instructor was standing outside waiting.

          “Good, Steph, Crystal, get into your cars. I’ll be with you shortly, Crystal,” he said, pushing up his glasses. Alya nodded and all the students got into their cars. After he finished reading the rest of the names and their instructor’s names, Mr. Crei got into the car with Alya.

          “Start out slowly, and go slowly the rest of the time,” Ms. Kroller said to Alial.

          “All right,” Alial pushed down slowly on the gas pedal. She went slowly around the track.

          “This time we must parallel park. Are you ready? Rena, Lisa, make a space big enough for another car to fit in between,” Mr. Crei said over a loudspeaker. Two of the students pulled up in a line with a space big enough for one car to fit. Alya looked like she already knew what she was doing. She moved the stick back to reverse. Alya looked behind her through the rear view mirror at the other car. Then she slowly backed up and turned the wheel to the left. She was in the space, perfectly. She looked at the man next to her impatiently. Alial was doing the same behind her.

          “Well, let’s just say you get your license,” Mr. Crei said.

          “Yes!” Both Alya and Alial cried.

Episode 80: Alya’s Breaking Vision

          “Did you hear Jo? We got our license. And it was our second time driving too!” Alya cried as she jumped into Jo’s arms. Alial ran up to Yamadi too.

          “Good job. You drive faster than I do, though, Crystal,” Jo said, laughing.

          “Well, like I said, that was only because Steph challenged me,” Alya said, smiling.

          On the way back to Jo’s place, Alya drove! She didn’t hit anyone either! When they got inside the apartment, Geo was silent, sitting in a chair. Alya knew why he was so sad, and she understood him.

          “Look, Geo! We got our licenses!” Alya said, happily, taking out a card from her bag. Alial also showed him her’s.

          “Good job,” he said, smiling. Alya still knew he was sad, since he hasn’t seen Iana for a long time.

          “Shall we go for dinner?” Jo asked.

          “Sure! That sounds great!” Steph, or Alial, said.

          Everyone vanished around Alya. It was all black.

          “Another vision? Ciel!” Alya said, turning around. Ciel appeared, but in a different form. She had short hair and a diamond around her eye.

          “Alya! Don’t run away from me! Stay here,” Ciel said. Her voice almost sounded different too.

          “Ciel… but why are you here?” Alya asked.

          “I can sense wherever you are. Synicoth will kill you, by using me. She will put me under a spell. Then I will kill you. But you have to understand, that I am being controlled. It’s not me, who will kill you,” Ciel said. She started crying. Her eyes glowing red, she then disappeared.

          Alya was now crying too.

          “Crystal, are you all right?” Jo asked. Alya just stood there crying, until Jo took her in his arms. Geo, Alial and Yamadi stood there looking sadly at them.

Episode 81: Jo’s Transformation?

          After awhile, Alya stopped crying.

          “Jo, can I talk to you alone?” Alya asked as she sniffed.

          “Sure,” Jo said. They walked into the kitchen.

          “I want you to hold still,” Alya said. She walked forward and gently kissed Jo. He closed his eyes. His ears suddenly got longer and pointy. Alya backed away. “Look in the mirror, Jo.” Jo looked in the mirror by the window.

          “What the… I’m an elf?” Jo asked.

          “That’s right, I can turn humans into elves. I just can’t turn myself and other elves into humans. If you want to become a true elf, you can. Otherwise, I don’t think we could ever stay together. I may look human now, but it’s only a disguise,” Alya explained.

          “Wow… I would love to stay an elf. But what about Yamadi?” Jo asked. <p>

          “He can become one too. Only Alial can turn him into one the same way I did to you, it’s her choice.” Jo blushed as Alya said this. “I’ll have to turn you back now. I can also do reverse transformations, but I can’t do it to elves who were born elves,” Alya said. She walked up to Jo and kissed him gently again. His ears went back to normal.

          They walked back into the room where everyone was sitting.

          “So, what does your picture look like, Crystal?” Alial asked.

          “Picture? On what?” Alya asked.

          “On your driver’s license,” Alial replied.

          “Oh, right…” Alya said. She hesitated, but then pulled it out. “Steph, let me show you first,” Alya said. Alial nodded and took the card. It was all blurry where the picture should have been.

          “What? You have no picture, Alya,” Alial whispered.

          “I know, probably because I have no reflection. But the people at the school would have been shocked. That’s strange,” Alya whispered.

          “So, are you going to show it to the rest of us, Crystal?” Yamadi asked.

          “Umm… maybe another time. Hey, Jo, would you like to hear a song that we thought up? We could sing it for you two. How about it, Steph?” Alya asked.

          “Sure. If it’s all right with everyone,” Alial said.

          “Yes, that would be great,” Jo said.

Episode 82: The Singing Contest

          Alial, Alya, Jo, and Yamadi were in a room with a stage. It wasn’t the one in their ship, since only Jo knew about who they really were. There was many instruments too. Alya began singing, she then picked up the guitar and played a couple of chords.

          “Wow! You’re really good. You should enter the singing contest!” Jo said, clapping. Yamadi nodded.

          “Huh? Contest?” Alya asked.

          “Yes. There’s a singing contest that’s being held in this building on the 18th. Which is tomorrow. There’s a poster over there,” Yamadi said, pointing towards the left wall. Alya turned her head. The poster read: SINGING CONTEST. THE 18TH OF DECEMBER. SINGING UP IN THE LOBBY.

          “Oh, do you want to Steph? We are pretty good,” Alial asked.

          “Sure we are, we just have to practice!” Alya said, smiling.

          They signed up at the front desk in a huge lobby with about ten people in it. Then they walked out and drove to dinner. Geo was picked up first.

          Dinner was in a mansion. When they walked in, Alial and Alya just stood there in awe for a few minutes. Geo did too. He had never eaten in such a fancy restaurant before, since he had been with Iana. Not even for their wedding reception. The waitress came out to seat them. They walked up the main staircase and into a large room with many tables in it. There were also three floors and a ballroom in the back of the banquet hall.

          “Oh, wow!” Alial said. A large, beautiful chandelier hung from the ceiling that was as bright as the sun. Alya smiled.

          “It’s almost like Synicoth’s ship, only a lot more friendly and beautiful,” Alya thought. They walked up one flight of spiraling stairs and were on the second floor. They sat down at a round, carved table.

          “This place is amazing. I never thought that a restaurant could be in here!” Geo said. Alya looked at him and smiled, since he was finally beginning to lighten up.

Episode 83: The Singing Contest Part 2

          After a very good dinner, there was dancing. Alya was in her dress from when she went to the movies with Jo. Alial also had on her dress. Jo and Yamadi of course, had on their tuxes. Alya spun around like an angel as Jo turned her. It was a slow song. Everyone stopped suddenly and gathered around the two couples. Geo looked at them sadly, remembering his and Iana’s wedding.

          The song ended, and another song started. Alial and Yamadi kept dancing, but Alya went off to one of the balconies. The sliver moon shown down on Alya’s face. Her eyes shimmered and her hair was all the way down to her ankles and was not pulled in pigtails. Jo walked up to her. She turned her head. Jo blushed and looked at the moon.

          “Alya, I do want to become an elf in order to be with you,” Jo said. Alya just smiled.

          The next day after breakfast, Alya and Alial decided to practice. They sang “Me” again and a song called “Last Kiss.” Alya had written both of them. Then they at lunch. Geo had cooked.

          “Hey, Geo, there’s a cooking match this Tuesday. Why don’t you enter? This soup is really good,” Jo said.

          “Thanks, maybe I will. As long as I don’t have to wear an apron,” Geo said. They all laughed.

          At four in the afternoon it was time for the contest. Jo drove them all to the building.

          “Are you Steph Stelly and Crystal Stelly?” A man asked when they walked in.

          “Yes, that’s us,” Alial said.

          “All right, walk this way. The dressing rooms are just down the hall and the entrance to the stage is the last door on the right.” The man pointed his finger down the hall.

          It was time for the contest to start and Alya and Alial were all ready. They had on an identical pair of dresses that were tight around their waists and ribbons went around them. They both had their hair pulled back in buns. Below the stage there was a whole symphony. The lights darkened in the stage room. The people quieted and an announcer came on stage with a microphone.

          “Ladies and gentlemen, here the night you’ve been waiting for! Only beautiful singers with the best songs will win! Here are the first two contestants…” the announcer read off their names and the two came on stage.

          After the fifth singer it was Alya and Alial’s turn.

          “Our next and final contestants are Crystal Stelly and Steph Stelly!” Alya and Alial came out onto the stage.

Episode 84: The Singing Contest Part 3

          “This is the first time that we have had a contestant write the songs. Crystal has great talent in writing songs,” the announcer’s voice rang out in every corner of the room. Everyone in the audience started talking with each other. “They will be singing two songs for us today! Here we go!” The announcer gave the music to each of the symphony members and the conductor. The lights went out and two lights shown on Alya and Alial. They sang “Me” when the orchestra started playing.


Alya: Friends, family, sisters,

Crying, her hair blowing in the wind,

Her radiant face is sad, not happy,

Her sister dying, pale, empty eyes,

Both: Me, what’s happening?

You are watching,

Me, you are beautiful,

You’re life, beautiful,

Alial: your life is short,

Just like winter,

Your feet never touch the ground,

You’re left there hanging,

Both: Me, what’s happening?
you’re taking over my heart,

Me, you are beautiful,

You spread your wings,

Alial: You can fly,

Both: Me, I’m no good,

Alya: It’s me…

Alial: It’s me…

          Then they switched to a different song: Last Kiss:

Alya: Someone running, into the spring,

You jump, Alial: You fall, Alya: You fall, Alial: you land,

Alya: So you start swimming, and can’t find your way,

But you see a shining light,

Both: Last kiss, on your lips, no one’s there,

Someone’s there, waiting for you,

Last kiss, on your lips, someone’s there,

Everyone’s there for you,

Alial: Beautiful symphony, playing your song,

Your voice touching hearts, Alya: of those around you,

Alial: Someone’s watching, all around,

You need someone to remind you that you can dream too,

Repeat chorus, No one is watching but everyone’s there instead of: ‘someone’s there, everyone’s…’

          The audience started clapping and cheering. Jo, Yamadi, and Geo waved and smiled. All the contestants came on stage.

          “And now for the winners! They are Steph and Crystal Stelly!” The announcer cried. Alya and Alial smiled.

          Alya and everyone got into Jo’s car and drove for a little while until Geo asked,

          “Hey, where do you sign up for  that cooking match?”

          “You actually want to enter?” Jo asked, surprised. Geo nodded. “Alright, I’ll show you,” Jo said.

Episode 85: Geo Sana’s Cooking Match!

          The group drove to another tall building.

          “The cooking match is actually today. I forgot. We’ll have to buy the materials after dinner,” Jo said. Geo just nodded and smiled. Alya worried about him. She was wondering why he decided to go along with this, but she decided to let it go since she’d never know what he was thinking.

          After Geo signed up the group went out for dinner. Then they bought ingredients for Geo’s Cole pizza. Then they went back to the building.

          Inside a huge hall there was a stage with ovens, long tables that had utensils, and food on them. Geo went in the back of the stage and Jo, Yamadi, Alya and Alial sat in the audience, which wasn’t too big. The contestants came on. Geo was the 4th person from the left side of the stage and was the only male.

          “Alright everyone, begin cooking!” The announcer cried. Geo took out his sword (the light beam wasn’t there, it was just a regular sword). The judges and announcer usually didn’t allow it, since the sword wasn’t one of the utensils, but they did this time. Geo tossed the vegetables up in the air and sliced them with his sword. The other contestants kept cutting but watched him in awe. The dough was already laid out flat and the vegetables fell on it. Then he sliced up the cheese and spread some sauce on the dough. He then put it in the oven and turned it to the highest level so that it wouldn’t take as long.

          After about ten minutes everyone was done.

          “Now the judges will decide,” the announcer said. Each of the judges tried each of the contestants’ cooking. The judges tasted Geo’s pizza and started talking about it. Then they tried the other cooking and wrote down their votes. The announcer took them.

          “The judges have decided. The winner is Geo Sana!”

Episode 86: And Yet, Another Vision

          “Way to go, Geo! You looked awesome!” Alya said on the way out of the building.

          “Thanks. I learned a few things from a friend of mine about six or seven years ago,” Geo said.

          “They must have been a really good cook,” Alial said.

          “Yeah,” Geo replied. He missed Iana and Silia (the friend he was talking about.) Alya kept walking but the next step she took turned the whole place around her into a bright white light. Ciel appeared to Alya.

          “Alya, I’m your sister, therefore I love you. Place your hand against mine,” Ciel said and held out the palm of her hand. Alya slowly put her hand on Ciel’s. Then Ciel leaned and kissed Alya on the lips. Alya’s eyes widened as Ciel backed away. Alya was  almost paralyzed.

          “Ciel…” Alya could barely speak.

          “Shh. You’ll learn in time who you are,” Ciel said. She disappeared.

          There was a flash of light. Alya was back with Jo, Alial and the others. Tears fell down her face.

          “Alya, what’s wrong?” Jo asked.

          “Ciel… another vision,” Alya said, softly. Jo took her in his arms.

          “Who’s that, Crystal?” Yamadi asked.

          “Let’s go back to my apartment to explain. Okay?” Jo asked. Yamadi still was confused. Alya nodded and walked back to the car slowly.

          At Jo’s apartment Alya stopped crying and sat down at the table.

          “Yamadi, Alial and I are not really humans. This is just a disguise that we made through a computer. My ship is orbiting this planet,” Alya explained.

          “So, you have been lying to me? Does Jo know?” he asked. Jo nodded.

          “We didn’t want anyone getting hurt, that’s all,” Alial said.

          “You could have told me, Steph, I mean Alial. I wouldn’t have thought you were strange,” Yamadi said.

          “Do you think this…” Alial turned back into an elf, “is strange?” She asked.

          “No. I think you are even more beautiful. You must be powerful,” Yamadi said, smiling.

          “Yes, but my sister is stronger,” Alial said, blushing.

Episode 87: Jo’s Proposal

          “Alya, I have to asked you something,” Jo said, kneeling on one knee in front of Alya. He took out a small black box. “Will you marry me?” He asked.

          “Uhhh… Yes! Yes I will! Jo…” Alya started crying, but this time it was because she was happy. Jo took out a golden ring with a diamond in it and placed it on her ring finger of her left hand. Alya hugged Jo tightly.

          “How about we go out to lunch?” Jo asked. Alya just nodded.

          They went to a restaurant in an area near the center of Tokyo.

          “Tokyo is beautiful, isn’t it Alial?” Alya laughed a little. Geo stared at the table. Alial was looking at him.

          “So, when are you going to complete your computer? You still have two more pieces to find,” he said, a little anger in his voice. Jo and Yamadi were confused.

          “Um, when we get back to the ship! So in a few days or so,” Alya laughed, waving her hands back and forth. Geo clenched a fist.

          “Iana,” he thought.

          “Don’t worry,” Alial said, smiling. He just looked at the table. Their food came and they ate in silence, although Geo wasn’t very hungry.

Episode 88: Ciel’s Attack

          They were just about done eating when a bright light flashed in front of them. Suddenly, Ciel appeared, only this time it was the real one.

          “Alya, I will kill all those you love,” she said. A blast came out of two of her fingers and shot straight at Jo.

          “Jo, look out!” Alya cried. But it was too late. The blast went through Jo’s shoulder. He went flying back a few feet, screaming. The people around them were almost paralyzed. (They were standing around them.) “Jo!” Alya cried. Ciel realized what Alya was doing. She now had her dress back on and two stars appeared on her cheek and above her forehead. Wings appeared on her back. Alya screamed as she was powering up. “How dare you! Ciel!” Alya cried and an energy wave blasted from her fists. Alya kept screaming. Her hair flew up. “Fuscia attack…” People ran away, even the owner of the restaurant. “Times one million!” Alya cried. Dark, black clouds went around her from the sky. A sphere of black light formed in her hands.

          “Well, I better get going!” Ciel said and just when the huge beam of light was about to hit her, she disappeared.

          “No! Damn you…” Alya said, breathing heavily. She fainted.

          “Alya!” Alial cried and ran to her sister. Alya slowly opened her eyes.

          “I’m all right, just heal Jo, please,” Alya said, barely able to talk. Alial nodded and went over to Jo. Alial took his head and slowly sat him up. Jo winced.

          “Don’t move. Healing!” Alial raised her hand. Light shown from the sky and then a beam of light came down over Jo. The wound in his shoulder healed. Jo stood up and went over to Alya.

          “You shouldn’t have done that for me,” Jo said. Alya started crying.

          “I want to marry you, so I didn’t want you to die,” Alya said, sweating. Yamadi and Geo just starred at Alya in awe because of her beautiful wings.

Episode 89: Yamadi and Jo’s Transformations

          Alya was back to normal thanks to Alial’s healing. Back at Jo’s apartment, Alial asked,

          “Yamadi, do you want to become an elf?” Alial blushed. Alya smiled.

          “I can? Really? Sure. I’ve always wanted to know what it was like to be one. And since you’re an elf, and I’m a human, we can’t really be together. Even though Jo asked Alya to marry him. Maybe I can do the same,” Yamadi said. Alial grew bright red. Alya laughed.

          “All right. Close your eyes and relax. Don’t think of anything,” Alial said. Jo and Yamadi both closed their eyes. Alya and Alial walked up to the. Alya kissed Jo and at the same time Alial kissed Yamadi. Their ears grew longer and more pointed. Alya backed away, but Alial kept kissing, or rather, Yamadi kept kissing her. Alya laughed a little and so did Geo. Alial finally let go of Yamadi. Geo just stood their starring. Then he smiled, Alya noticed that he seemed a little happier.

          Yamadi looked in the mirror.

          “Wow!” Was all he said. Suddenly, black angel wings appeared on his back. Alial blushed.

          “Jo, why am I the only one who has wings?” He asked.

          “Probably because I didn’t put that much power into the transformation,” Alya said, smiling.

          Alya and the others went outside. It was getting dark and some stars were out. Jo’s apartment was above a grassy hill and a lake. Alya took Jo in her arms and floated up. Alial took Geo, since Yamadi could fly on his own, and he didn’t mind it. Yamadi’s feet lifted off the ground. Soon they were flying above the clouds.

          “Alya, Alial!” John’s voice rang in Alya’s head.

          “Oh… John. I guess it’s time to fight now, sorry Jo and Yamadi. We’ll be back after we’re done though,” Alya said. They landed and Jo and Yamadi turned back to normal. (They were still elves, just in disguises like Alya and Alial were.) Alial caught Yamadi’s hand before they landed.

          “Bye, Alya,” Jo said.

          “Bye Alial and Geo. See you soon,” Yamadi said. Alya and Alial smiled and they, along with Geo, disappeared.

          “They’ll be back. Alya can’t and will not lose to any enemy,” Jo said.

          “I hope so,” Yamadi stated. They looked into the starry sky as the moon started to rise.

This Song

My life is nothing more than a destiny,

My heart, nothing more than it’s love,

I know, my dreams won’t be real,

But they can live in me for eternity,

This song is but a tune,

Played on the wings of my heart,

Every minute is everyday,

But when will I find you again?

My eyes are nothing more than seeing,

My mind is nothing more than thoughts,

But why can’t I fly? Why can’t I fly?

I have beautiful wings, wings of my heart,

This song is but a melody,

Played on the absence of fear,

Every second is every soul,

Ticking away the hours of death,

Your heart helps you to love,

Or is it just your mind playing tricks?

You can never see your true life,

What you are and what you’ll become,

My life is nothing more than a destiny,

My heart is nothing more than it’s love…

This song is but a tune,

Played on the wings of my heart,

Every minute is everyday,

But when will I…

This song is but a tune,

Played on the wings of my heart,

But when will I find you again?

Episode 90: Truth About Synicoth

          “Iana,” Geo mumbled. They were in Alya’s lab. She turned to him, but still turned on the computer. A picture of a sorceress blinked on the screen. It disappeared. But at the same time it seemed to say ‘help me.’

          “What the…?” Alya started.

          “Could this mean that Iana’s somewhere nearby? We would probably have to defeat Synicoth in order to save her. Where do we even start looking?” Geo asked. He had a worried expression on his face.

          “Poor Geo,” Alya thought.

          “Alya Star!” An evil voice called out to her. Alya froze. She couldn’t move.

          “Who are you?” She asked. It was Synicoth. Alya had heard her voice before on a recording.

          “Geo, how did you lose Iana? Do you know?” Alial asked. She and Geo were in the control room.

          “Well, the only thing I remember was seeing her one minute, and then the next, she was gone. I can’t really explain how it happened. It was so long ago,” Geo said. He had a sad expression and Alial thought about her sisters. But she had to put that behind her.

          “I won’t ask anything else, since you probably won’t want to talk about it,” Alial said. She pushed a button and a girl with a sword appeared. She was Synicoth. “Wow, she’s pretty. More beautiful than Zellial, that’s for sure. Wait a minute, she looks familiar, a little too familiar,” Alial gasped. Alial ran into the lab.

          “What is it, Alial?” Alya asked. She was crying but Alial didn’t stop.

          “It’s Synicoth. She looks a lot like our mother,” Alial said, breathing hard and sweating.

          “But what would an Asiania want with an Elfin?” Alya asked.

          “Our father wasn’t Elfin, he was… Asiania. So that means, our sisters and I, we are Asianias as well,” Alial said, crying.

          “No way. You just explained to me that you and I were elfin awhile ago!” Alya cried.

          “I know, but I know that this has to be true also. Because an Asiania can’t marry or even have a relationship with an Elfin,” Alial said.

Episode 91: First Attack

          “We still have to kill her. She is our enemy now,” Alya said. Geo was now in the lab, and the two sisters were in the control room.

          “Yes, I understand. She’s still our mother, which is going to make it difficult to fight her,” Alial said.

          “Why is the only question though. Damn! Here she comes!” Alya cried. A blast hit the ship.

          “Alya, be careful. She is extremely powerful,” John said.

          “No shit!” Alya cried.

          “I’ve never seen Alya so aggressive like this,” Alial thought. Geo ran into the control room and drew the light sword.

          “No need for that,” Synicoth said. A blast of air hit Geo and he went flying back and hit the wall.

          “Geo! That does it… where are you, Synicoth?” Alya cried.

          “I’m right here,” Synicoth said. A beam hit Alya. She screamed as she fell on the floor, her dress disappearing and star locket shattering.

          “Alya!” Alial cried. Alya lay there, eyes blank, but she was still conscious.

          “I can not give up. Never! I have to save… everyone,” Alya Star Eternal said.

          “What the hell?” Synicoth asked.

          “I’m never giving up!” Alya cried. She started getting up, still no dress, her locket started to appear again. Her dress also slowly appeared.

          “What the… you’re will to fight is the only thing that keeps you going. But you will never defeat me!” Synicoth cried, laughing evilly. She flew forward, spreading out black angel wings.

          “I will kill you! No matter what!” Alya exclaimed.

          “You will never get me,” Synicoth said and disappeared.

          “Where is she?” Alya asked.

          “I will be one day away from here, and if you want, don’t put to much into finding me. I still want to battle you!” Synicoth laughed.

          “Oh don’t worry! I’ll make sure my ship has enough energy left!” Alya said.

          “Alya, I wonder if we’ll ever be able to kill her,” Alial said. Alya winced and clutched her chest. “What’s wrong?” Alial asked.

          “It just hurts. I think I used a little too much of my powers. We have to heal Geo,” Alya said, suddenly remembering. Geo was lying on the floor. He had blood dripping down his right arm and chin. “Alial, can you help me?” Alya asked.

          “Yeah,” Alial replied. She helped Alya get up and go over to Geo. They put their hands over him and a light formed around him. He winced and opened his eyes slowly.

          “Iana,” he said, weakly.

Episode 92: Synicoth’s Story

          “Thank you. I feel a lot better,” Geo said. Alial blushed. (She had always liked him, but she could not tell him her feelings, since she was marrying Yamadi.)

          “I’ll be in the recovery room if you need me. I’ll only be there an hour or so, I’ll be back!” Alya said. She held up two fingers as she teleported back to the ship. Alial and Geo did the same. “I hope nothing happens while I’m recovering. Damn, this hurts. I should have kept my guard up,” Alya said, pushing the button on one of the chambers. She got in. “Why am I feeling this way? I am…” She started. Images of Synicoth came to her mind, the past and future. Synicoth used Tomorrow’s Legacy on Earth.

          “No!” Alya cried. She woke up. “A dream. It had to be a dream, it will never come true. But these are the same as last month’s dreams,” Alya thought, sitting up in the chamber. She started to cry but stopped almost right away. The ship tilted. She ran into the control room. “Alial, what’s wrong?” Alya cried. Alial and Geo were there.

          “It’s Synicoth! I thought she was going to be a day away from here!” Alial cried. The ship was blasted by a beam of light.

          “Alya Star!” Someone cried. Alya stopped moving completely. Her eyes were closed tight. Images kept appearing in her mind. Horrible images.

          “Noooo!” She cried.

          “Alya, what’s wrong?” Alial asked, clutching her sister’s shoulders.

          “Syn… Syn…” Alya started, she could not speak.

          “”Synicoth! What have you done with my sister?” Alial cried. For a moment there was no answer.

          “I have given her the sad memories of her past. Your father dying, Amile and Aiya being destroyed. Even what will happen to you, Alial Star. Alya Shadow, awaken!” Synicoth said. Alya Star turned slowly into Alya Shadow.

Episode 93: Alya’s True Form

          “Alya! No! There will be no way of getting you back!” Alial cried.

          “Well, there is a way. You have to defeat me!” Synicoth said. Alya Shadow burst through the top of the ship. Wind blew in through the hole in the ceiling.

          “Geo, take this shield!” Alial cried.

          Further away, a woman was floating. Light years away from Geo, she could still hear him.

          “Geo?” She asked. She started to life her head up. Then she started to cry. “Geo!” She cried.

          Geo, now in space also, heard her.

          “Iana?” He asked. Alya Shadow appeared in front of Alial.

          “You think you can try your silly healing spell on me again? Well, it won’t work on me this time. You are not my sister and this is my true form!” Alya swung at Alial. Alial put her hand out to block the attack.

          “No. You can’t be this way! You are my sister. We are from the same family. We’re all Elfin’s! Alya!” Alial cried. Her eyes were filled with tears.

          “No! It is true that I thought I was Elfin. But even you said yourself that I was Asiania. And you are not my sister! Jazel created you. I know that for a fact because Synicoth is her sister!”

          “Alya! You are the one I hold close to my heart! Remember all the good times we had together? The memories on Earth, when we went to Arillas to get supplies and met Geo! When I first met you! I even knew at the time that you were my true sister!” Alial cried. Tears fell from her blue eyes.

          “Power sword!” Alya cried. Her wings expanded and a black glow surrounded them. A red sword appeared in her hands. She charged at Alya.

Episode 94: Alial’s Death? No!

          The sword went right through Alial’s chest.

          “A…lya!” She screamed, gasping for air. She held her chest and floated upright, breathing heavily.

          “You won’t live much longer. You will be dead in a day or so,” Alya Shadow said.

          “Alya, what you just said hurt me more than this wound. I am… your sister! I would rather die than to see you like this,” Alial said, barely able to talk.

          “I will fight. At least until Iana gets here!” Geo cried, he drew his light sword.

          “That weapon’s useless against my power!” Alya cried.

          Swords clashed and could be heard miles away. Geo had slashes of blood across his face from Alya’s sword. Iana kept flying towards Geo. She had wings and a tight gray suit on.

          Alial was pale and her eyes were clear.

          “A… lya. Why?” Alial gasped.

          “You’re not my sister! You are not Asiania at all, you are Elfin,” Alya cried. Geo was just floating there, catching his breath.

          “No! That’s not true… I…” Alial bent her head down and started to cry. Alial started floating towards the ship.

          “No! You won’t escape!” Alya cried.

          Alial closed the door to the ship.

          “John! Battle… formation!” Alial cried.

          “Right,” John said and turned the ship into a robot that looked like Alya, but a little different. 

Episode 95: Alya’s Assault

          “Alial, what are you planning to do? You can’t possibly defeat me and Synicoth with that robot. Plus, do you think it will follow your commands, since I’m the one who built it a long time ago?” Alya asked, laughing. Her eyes were glowing red.

          “I know… it will. John is my friend and yours as well. So why don’t you join us. We could defeat Synicoth together. You told me yourself we had to destroy her. Don’t you even remember that?” Alial asked.

          “No! Now shut up, damn elf! You don’t belong in space, so I will kill you!” Alya cried and charged toward Alial. Alial floated there, in the control room of the robot, staring out the window at Alya Shadow coming straight for her. She burst through the shield and glass. “Why aren’t you fighting me?” Alya asked.

          “Because I have no reason to. You are my sister, and I will always love you, no matter what you do to me,” Alial said, tears fell down her face. Alya slashed at Alial. Blood ran down Alial’s arms, face and chest.

          Suddenly, Alial’s dress flew off and her whole body was covered in blood. She was still floating but this time she shot up through space. Although it was hard to fly since it hurt so much. Alial could barely speak.

          “Alya… why?” Her voice was small and quiet. “You are not the Alya Star that I know. I knew that you were not “normal…” Alial started. Alya was following her.

          “I will never be Alya Star again!” Alya cried.

          “You will. I will make you normal again!” Alial cried. Her heart started to shine. Rays of light shone on Alya. They also made the blood disappear on Alial as well.

(This is played in the beginning of the episode.)

This Song

My life is nothing more than a destiny,

My heart, nothing more than it’s love,

I know, my dreams won’t be real,

But they can live in me for eternity,

This song is but a tune,

Played on the wings of my heart,

Every minute is every day,

But when will I find you again?

My eyes are nothing more than seeing,

My mind is nothing more than thoughts,

But why can’t I fly? Why won’t I fly?

I have beautiful wings, wings of my heart,

This song is but a melody,

Played on the absence of fear,

Every second is every soul,

Ticking away the hours of death,

Your heart helps you to love,

Or is it just your mind playing tricks?

You can never see your true life,

What you are and what you’ll become,

My life is nothing more than a destiny,

My heart is nothing more than it’s love…

This song is but a tune,

Played on the wings of my heart,

Every minute is every day,

But when will I find you again?

This song is but a tune,

Played on the wings of my heart,

But when will I find you again?

Episode 96: Alial’s Heart and Alya vs. Synicoth

          “Alya, Alya Star… please wake up. Wake up to your true self!” Alial cried. Alya Shadow spun around slowly, her skin was turning to normal. Her dress appeared again. Light shown all around Alya.

          “Alial, my dear sister. Thank you. Now, we have to defeat that evil Synicoth,” Alya said, taking her sister’s hand and flew back to John. <

          “Damn you, Alial,” Synicoth muttered. She was sitting in her chair. Weird vines were coming down from three different spots and hooked into her left shoulder, right arm, and her back. She was holding a wine glass in her left hand. Her aura started glowing purple. “Damn you Alial!” She cried and broke the wine glass. Wine dripped down her arm.

          “John, turn back to normal mode. Turn in the direction of Synicoth’s ship. Once we are 200 kilometers away, turn back into battle mode and attack her!” Alya said.

          They reached the ship in under an hour and the ship turned back into the robot. The word ‘Lightning’ appeared on the screen. The eyes of the robot glowed and it held its fist up. Light rays shot out of it and hit Synicoth’s ship. Geo and Alial just stood there looking out the windows. Alya came out of the hatch that she used to control the robot. Light shown around her in order to protect her from space.

          “Power Sword!” Alya cried.

          “Dark Sword!” Synicoth cried. A dark, black and red sword appeared in Synicoth’s hands. They both flew forward and their swords hit. They kept slashing at each other until finally, Alya slashed Synicoth’s arm and her sword broke into pieces. Synicoth gasped and started flying away.

Episode 97: Iana’s Contact

          “Oh no! You’re not getting away!” Alya cried. She disappeared. Synicoth was almost a mile ahead of them and thought she lost Alya. Suddenly, Alya appeared behind Synicoth. She raised her sword against Synicoth’s neck.

          “All right! I’ll retreat, but only for right now. In a few hours you and your “sister” will be killed with these two hands!” Synicoth cried and disappeared.

          Back where Alial and Geo were, Synicoth’s ship started moving. Then it was out of sight.

          “Alya Star, you shall die. In exactly two hours my greatest destruction plan will commence!” Synicoth laughed. She was typing on a large computer. Much like John, only the screen was bright red.

          “Iana!” Geo suddenly cried. Alial was in the recovery room and Alya and Geo were in the control room. Geo was shaking and gasping like he was trying to move, but couldn’t. A flash of a picture of Iana appeared in his mind and Alya’s.

          “Geo, what do you suppose this means?” Alya asked, almost frozen.

          “Geo, can you hear me? It’s me, Iana,” a voice called out.

          “Iana? I can hear you, but how…?” Geo started to ask.

          “I learned this technique on another planet. Anyways, I’m flying towards you and I’ll be there in exactly two hours and ten minutes. I can’t communicate with you much longer. I’ll see you soon,” Iana said.

          “Iana! Don’t go!” Geo cried. It was too late.

          “That was strange, I could hear her too,” Alya said.

Episode 98: Alial’s New Form

          “Alya!” Alial cried. She was still in the chamber but had the door open.

          “Alial! What’s wrong?” Alya was in the doorway soon after hearing her scream. Suddenly Alial started glowing. She spun around, her hair grew longer and new wings appeared on her back. They were crimson red with some gold and purple around the edges. A long dress appeared on her body. She had a moon on her forehead and she had a headband around her head with a moon on it as well. “Alial, you’re different! That’s the same thing that happened to me after I recovered. I think Aiya did something to the chamber, but what I don’t know,” Alya said. Geo stood behind her, blushing. (Like he didn’t already have a wife!)

          “Alya! Synicoth is almost here!” John cried.

          “What? Synicoth?” Alya asked.

          “Yes, and she’s very angry too,” John added.

          “Alya, Alial and Geo, you all will die. And so will the planet Earth!” Synicoth cried.

          “What?” Alya cried. The ship of Synicoth appeared out of nowhere and transformed into a robot.

          “Iscicle shield!” Synicoth cried. A large white barrier formed around her ship.

          “Why do you want to destroy all of the Elfins and humans?” Alya cried.

          “So I can achieve what my sister could not! She tried to make the universe a better place to live in!” Synicoth cried.

          “Power Sword! You’re our mother, why do you want to kill us?” Alya asked. Her sword appeared in her hands and in her ship’s hands.

          “You are a nuisance and always will be if you aren’t destroyed! That’s why I want to kill you so badly. Yes, I would love you, but only if I had a heart to love with!” Synicoth cried.

          “Then you shall die with regret!” Alya cried. Her sword started glowing. The one in the robot’s hands gathered energy. “Light beam, strike!” Alya cried. Her sword seemed to get very long. It was only a slash of light.

Episode 99: Earth’s Destruction and Iana Sana

          The light beam stretched out towards Synicoth. The barrier around her flashed.

          “What the…?” She asked. A dark, powerful strike hit the barrier. It broke the ice circle into pieces. The dust cleared partially.

          “Iana?” Geo asked. Iana was floating there, she was breathing heavily and holding a large, dark sword.

          “Iana Sana? Is that really you?” Alya gasped.

          “Iana! It is you!” Geo cried.

          “I heard you needed help!” Iana said. She winked. Synicoth drew a sword also. A hatch opened in Alya’s ship and Iana flew in just before she got stabbed. <

          “Iana! I’m so glad to see you!” Geo said.

          “Yes, I am too. But now we have a problem to face before we celebrate,” Iana said, seriously.

          “I don’t know how we’re going to win, since she knows Tomorrow’s Legacy. Somehow we will,” Alya said.

          “Are you sure about that? ‘Demons that dwell in space and time, will  be destroyed by this power, come into me, head my power, let all those fear me and your being!’” Synicoth’s robot started glowing.

          “No! She’s using Tomorrow’s Legacy!” Iana cried. Alya, Alial, Iana, and Geo all started glowing.

          “Tomorrow’s…” Synicoth stretched the robot’s hand out towards the Earth. It’s hand covered one side of the Earth. “Legacy!” Synicoth cried. A black light stretched across the Earth. It also destroyed both Alya’s and Synicoth’s ship.

          Alya was the only one left, alive. The Earth was now brown and bleak, just like the moon.

          “Noooo!” Alya cried.

Episode 100: Final


          “Sister, no, Asiania through blood, but not through heart,” someone was calling out to her.

          “Who’s there? Aiya?” Alya Star Eternal, now naked, turned around. A tear fell down both her and Aiya’s face. “No! Everyone!” Alya cried. No one could hear her. The whole Earth had been destroyed, it was now brown and it seemed to cry. “You were just talking to me a minute ago! Answer me, Aiya! Alial! Someone hear me!” Alya cried. Her hair flowed behind her.

*        *        *

          “Alial, my dear sister. I am still Elfin now! You hear me? Do you Synicoth? Answer me!” Alya cried, taking the body of her dead sister in her arms. “The Earth, it was such a peaceful world. So full of love. But because of me it got destroyed. It was all my fault!” Alya cried. The tears fell down her face. A few feet away from her sisters were Iana and Geo, their hands enclosed in each other. “Iana, you were the most powerful sorceress on Earth, yet you died because of me,” Alya thought. Was this her purpose for being created? To destroy everyone because they wanted to protect her? No, it couldn’t be true. Everyone had to be okay on Earth. Alya placed her hand on Alial’s face. Her dress flew back on her. A shimmering golden dress that went below her feet. Angel wings appeared on her back.

          She flew desperately towards Earth. She landed in Japan and saw everyone laying still on the grass and streets. She then came across a bridge. All of the buildings were destroyed. There was nothing left but that bridge and a river. It still sparkled blue and something about it seemed strange. She lowered her head and put her arms on the railing.

          No, my reflection’s there! It can’t be! I’m an Asiania!” Alya said. Tears fell down into the water. Ripples floated there. They waved away her reflection. Soon she saw another face. “Alial, I miss you so much. Why can’t this world go back to the way it was?” Alya asked.

          “Because you’re Alya Star Eternal, the princess of both Asiania’s and Elfin’s,” a voice echoed throughout the Earth.

          “What? My locket…” Alya said, as it had started to glow. She gasped. Alya lifted off the ground. The Earth itself glowed and gradually regained it’s shape and life. All of the people got up. “What the…? Did I do that? It’s back to normal! Alial?” Alya turned her head around. Everyone was standing there, including Aiya and Amile. “Alial!” Alya cried. She started crying as soon as she hugged Alial. Her sisters joined in. Iana walked up to them.

          “You did a better job than I did. Thank you,” she said.

          “I know that was what I was created for. So that I can restore the Earth after Synicoth destroys it,” Alya said. Geo smiled.

          “We fought well together,” he said. Iana leaned against his shoulder.

          “Alya,” a man said. Alya turned around.

          “Jo? Jo!” Alya started crying again and floated into Jo’s arms.

          “I’ll go to wherever you go from now on. I never want to lose you,” Jo said. They kissed.

          Iana and Geo stayed on Earth while the sisters and Jo flew through the universe.
