I…really can’t afford to believe in anything else. That’s the one thing keeping me from loosing my way, here in the darkness.
It’s hard…But even now, I know a part of them is by my side. I have to really believe that they’re okay!
Hmmm….well, I do enjoy the contrast of the sweetness of the cherries with the richness of the dark chocolate. They go well with muffins! Terra doesn’t like it when I bake too many sweets, but if I keep the muffins pretty simple, he’ll eat even those.
He does like almonds though, so I do end up using those and other nuts in a lot of my recipes to keep him from complaining too much. Maybe I should get him to try that toffee!
It’s not easy—but I do it because I know if I don’t get out of here, I’ll never see my friends again. I need to know whether they’re doing okay out there. I hope Terra found a way to get free of Master Xehanort, and I hope nobody’s disturbed Ventus.
Reuniting with them is all I think about. We’ll be together again, me, Terra, and Ventus. I have to believe that.
And those children—well, I guess they’re not children now. I need to find them and apologize for the sorry mess we left for them to clean up. They have been so brave. They deserve so much and I need to get out of here for them as well.
And this letter was addressed to me….why?
Well, objectively speaking, I guess he’s pretty good-looking already, right? I don’t know, I don’t really pay attention to that sort of stuff. So I guess as a girl he’d be just as pretty.
I’m sorry, I’m trying to take this question seriously, but all I can think about is that one time we pranked Terra and put him in a skirt.
Good thing he’s not here to hear you say that, because he’s still kind of sore whenever we mention it.
The only thing I find “attractive” is power. Gender would make no difference to me.
-Master Xehanort, Vanitas, Ventus, and Aqua
It is not a world I am familiar with, no.
I’m sure it’s out there somewhere—there are probably worlds upon worlds that we have no idea exist. There are probably places that even the Masters of long ago never could’ve imagined.
-Master Eraqus and Aqua
Why do we keep getting this suggestion? We look nothing like each other.
And Aqua and I aren’t nearly old enough for Ven to be our kid.
Besides, we’re a family just the way we are.
-Aqua, Terra, and Ven
Uh, can’t say I have. You guys?
I feel like I’ve heard of it somewhere. It sounds odd.
I’d like to try it if we ever see it though.
-Ventus, Terra, and Aqua
Wait, what’s wrong with Terra?
I’m glad Ven’s still safe but… Things may have been more serious than I thought.
Please, wherever you all are… come quick.
Whoa, whoa, coming on a little strong there, aren’t you.
I—It’s not me saying it!!
Oh, r-right! Ahaha, I knew that.
….I gotta admit though, that was…a really forceful response, Aqua. Would it really be that terrible being married to me?
….are you saying you want to get married?
What, no! That’s not what I meant at all, I just…you made it sound like—
Argh, nevermind, let’s just drop it before this gets even more awkward.
-Terra and Aqua
That…was not steak.
Oh come on Terra, lighten up—it was just a joke.
And you can’t really get too mad us—we had the Master’s seal of approval after all!
That just makes it even worse! I thought the Master said no more pranks!
A spot of fun here and there is not unwarranted, and I felt this was harmless enough.
-Terra, Ventus, Aqua, and Eraqus
Oh, but I’m not a Keyblade Master yet. I haven’t even had the chance to take the test! Aqua and Terra just finished taking it though.
Yeah, but I didn’t pass…..
I’m sure you’ll pass next time, Terra. As for me, well, I don’t know about apprentices just yet. I’ve still gotta get used to being a Master first.
-Terra, Aqua, and Ventus
Of course. And as long as we’re in each other’s hearts, we’ll be connected.
Aqua! You’re not gonna bad-mouth Terra, are you?
No, I—I wouldn’t dream of it! I was just going to say that….
That he’s a very trusting person, haha! That’s a good thing, right?….right?
-Aqua and Ventus
Dear Worried Friend,
I….I’m really sorry about your friend. I don’t want to pretend like I have any right to tell you how to run your life, especially since I don’t know first-hand what you’re going through.
But it’s clear that your friend needs help. I know you brought up the fact that you don’t return his…feelings, but that shouldn’t hold any bearing to the fact that you should be there for him—as a friend. If possible, you should not have to shoulder the burden alone—surely there might be someone else he can also lean on for support…?
Above all, you should not feel guilty that you don’t feel a certain way for him—that is not something within your control. Please don’t forget that.
We see your name up there—thought you could pull one over on us and impersonate Ven?
You won’t convince us to leave Ven’s side. We’ll be there to make sure he never merges with you!
-Terra and Aqua
