Hey, guys. New KOTS Chapter
Kingdom Of the Soul
Chapter 4: Hollow bastion.
As soon as Maka, Sora, Donald and Goofy came into the Gummi Ship. Maka was surprised on how big it was on the inside then the outside.
"Oh! I gotta call Shinigami sensei!" Maka remembered, but Sora remembered. "Maka, we don't know how to call him since we didn't meet..." he tried to say, but Maka went to the left side of the window as Donald, Goofy and sora all seated.
Maka then breathed out some air, and made Shinigami's number.
And as the numbers came, some sort of ripple came from it. And coming from the middle came to the light, but that didn't surprised Sora, Donald, and Goofy. What appeared to be a cartoony skull guy that scared them.
"Shinigami sama!" Maka called out as the giant grim reaper screen looked around confused at the new people before he saw Maka.
"Ah, Maka there you are!" he called out waving his giant hand. It scared Sora, Donald and Goofy even more. "Did I miss something?"
After explaining the things that happened to Maka and the others, with her being at Twilight Town. And how she was told about other worlds.
"My Maka, that is an interesting story. And Yensid still remembers me!" Shinigami said happily. (If he had a face.)
But just then, out appeared from nowhere was Spirit Alburn, Maka's father.
"Maka! There you are! I was worried about you!" He cried as the tears from his eyes came. "You know this old dude?" Sora asked pointing at the Death Scythe crying before he was Death Chopped.
"Yes, that's my Father, by we're not in good terms..." Maka said, not looking at the screen as her father was in a corner growing mushrooms. (Hey, what do you expect when Tamaki and he were voiced by Vic Mignogna?)
Of course, to sora, it seemed that her father was worried about her.
"Oh by where is Soul?" Shinigami asked, looking around the ship. "Don't know, but probably in the next world we'll be going to." Maka told him and the screen faded as Spirit cried out "MAKA!"
Once everything was in order, everybody was seated. The map screen appeared and out appeared only two worlds. One was Twilight Town, and another world. This one looked like a castle was under construction.
"Only one?" Sora asked, a bit disappointed. "That's no good!" Donald said also disappointed, "Wait! I think it's a world we know!" Goofy called out, seeing the almost familiar world.
"I wonder if Soul is there..." Maka said, hoping to find him again.
The world that was here had a town, which looked like it was being rebuilt and some people were just talking and walking.
And out appeared from a corner were Sora, Maka, Donald and Goofy as they got out from the corner, looking at the giant castle.
"It's Hollow Bastion!" Sora said, looking at the giant castle. "Gwarsh it looks different now." Goofy noticed the town around them.
Maka looked around as Donald wondered. "I hope Leon and the others are doing okay."
And then, Goofy noticed some Soldier Heartless far away. And then disappearing from from sight.
"Uh-oh. Looks like we're gonna do some fightin'." he explained as the others agreed.
As they went around town, seeing other little duck's who are Donald's nephews, who were running shops. (And not giving him a family discount even though he's saving the worlds along with Sora)
And another duck who's old who is Donald's uncle named Scrooge Mcduck, who was trying to recreate his old time favorite Ice Cream, but kept on making it terrible.
At another place where Sora, Maka and the others came in, out appeared lights that appeared and disappeared.
"Hey, what's going on?" Donald asked as the lights kept on appearing and disappearing.
"That's the town's defense mechanism." called out a female voice. When they looked around and looked up, they saw a young woman who wore a black skirt, black shoes, black vest, black headband, raven hair, and midnight blue sleeveless shirt, it was Sora's friend "Yuffie!"
As she opened her violet eyes, she was surprised at an incoming enemy. "Watch out!"
And out appeared the Dusk Nobodies. And the others readied their weapons, Maka was about to summon Aslan until she heard a familiar voice. "Maka!"
It was Soul jumping over Yuffie, Maka was happy to see his friend again. And as Soul jumped down, he transformed into his scythe form and Maka grabbed him ready to battle.
Donald flashed up a fire ball at a Dusk, making it disappear. And Sora and Goofy fused together into a new form that looked like his new clothes, but red.
And Maka swung Soul into a couple of them as Sora in his new form called Valor, defeating more of the Nobodies.
As they defeated the Nobodies for a while, Soul transformed back into his human form.
"Hey you guys!" Yuffie called out and jumped in front of the others.
"I see your still in top form." she said when she was at the ground. "And I see Soul found his girlfriend!"
"She/He isn't my Girlfriend/boyfriend!" Both Maka and Soul shouted at the female ninja.
Ignoring the Weapon Meister and weapon. Sora said "What'd you expect? Looks like your doing okay."
"Well what did YOU Expect?" The ninja asked, "How are the others?" Donald asked how the other people were doing.
"Great!" The ninja said, exited as usual. "Hey, Yuffie. Have you seen the King and Riku?" Sora asked wondering where the king and his friend is.
"Nope!" Yuffie said as she ran as Sora was disappointed. "But I had a feeling I'd see you three again!" She turned around to tell them.
Sora smiled at his friend. "We may never meet again, but we'll never forget each other." Sora said copying somebody.
"Is that suppose to be Leon?" Yuffie asked pointing at him. Both Donald and Goofy laughed at the bad impretion of Leon.
"Everybody's working on stuff over at Merlin's house. C'mon!" Yuffie said as she lead them.
"So, who's spiky and his dog and duck?" Soul asked, wondering who Maka's friends were.
Sora introduced himself, Donald and Goofy and wanted to answers. "How do you transform into a scythe?" Sora asked, Soul scratched his head.
"Well, it's kinda complicated. And I don't know the whole story either." Soul said, but as he counted his fingers, he felt like there were six of them. But ignored that as they went to Merlin's house.
A little while later, the others went into Merlin's house just like Yuffie said.
There were three new people to Maka.
The one in front of the computer had a white shirt, dark blue pants, something that looks like a belt on him, and goggles on his blond hair.
On the man's right, was another man with black pants with brown straps, white shirt under a black jacket with fluffs on the collar and brown hair with spikes on the bottom, and black boots.
On the man's left, was a woman who's light brown hair was tied by a red bow, her clothing was mostly light and dark pink and brown boots.
"Meet the Hollow Bastion Restoration Committee!" Yuffie introduced the others.
The others turned around with Aerith having dark green eyes. "We missed you!" She said happily seeing her old friends again.
"Well, if you ain't in top shape. And Soul boy's found his girlfriend." The old geezer Cid said.
"He/she is not my boyfriend/girlfriend!" Both Maka and Soul said again for the second time.
"I knew it..." Leon said with his dark blue eyes in satisfaction.
"Knew what?" Sora asked, wonder what he knew about.
"A while back, everyone suddenly remembered you guys, all at the same time." He explained to Sora, Donald and Goofy. All three of them were surprised.
"You...remembered?" Sora said surprised at his friends remembering them. "Wait! Does that mean you forgot about us! ?" "Since when did they forget about them?" Maka asked herself and a little bit to Aslan.
"I don't know Maka, but it seems that something from his past did something to him..." Aslan said to Maka.
"Thanks!" Donald said in an angry voice. That the others forgot about him.
"So where have you guys been all this time?" Yuffie asked, not seeing Sora, Donald and Goofy for about a year or so.
"We were sleepin." Goofy told them, "But how did they sleep?" Soul Thought.
"Where? In cold storage?" Cid asked sarcastically.
It was hard for Sora, Donald and Goofy to explain.
"It doesn't matter. This is great. Everyone's together again!" Aerith said happy to see her friends again.
Sora then remembered, "So, um...we're trying to find Riku and the King. Have you seen em?" the brown spiky asked, if they saw his friend and the king.
The three shook their heads. Not seeing Riku or King Mickey. "Right." Sora said sadly, that they did not see Riku or the King as he wanted to go home, but still had some things to do.
"Sorry. But let us know if there is anything we can do to help. Okay?" Aerith apologized to Sora.
"Okay, thanks!" Sora quickly said happily.
"Don't go thankin' us just yet." Cid told them as he was near. "Personal space old geezer..." Soul said in his head, as he didn't want to be Maka Chopped.
"Hollow Bastion's got a problem. A big problem." Leon said.
"You mean, like Nobodies? And Heartless?" Sora asked trying to look at Leon as Cid was in the way. "Which one is the Heartless and Which is the Nobodies?" Soul asked Maka, "Heartless are the black ones and the Nobodies are white ones." Maka told him. (Sorry, didn't mean to be racist, but they are black and white.)
"That's right!" Yuffie said exited.
"Sounds like you could use our help." Sora told Yuffie.
"Then let's cut to the chase." Leon interrupted. "Sora, Donald, Goofy, Maria. We were hoping the four of you including Soul might give us a hand around here." He told them, but got Maka's name wrong.
"It's Maka, and don't worry." Maka said, smiling as she held her book behind her if he got her name wrong again.
"...I forgot who I'm dealing with." Leon said, as if making fun of Sora.
"Hey...what do you mean by that?" Donald asked suspiciously. "Just think of it as sort of a 'Leon compliment'." Aerith said softly.
Leon went to the door, opening it. "Follow me to the Bailey-theirs something you need to see." he said as he went out.
As he got out, a puff of smoke appeared, in it's place was another old wizard, but this wizard was different from Yensid, as he had longer white beard.
He had a light blue wizard robe and pointy hat without the stars, and a wand on his left hand.
This was the wizard Merlin.
"Oh! I thought it was you. Right on time!" The wizard said.
"It's Merlin!" Donald shouted as all three of them went towards the old wizard.
Yuffie was happy to tell him the news. "Sora and the gang plus Maka said they're gonna help out!" She told the old wizard.
"Splendid! We'll count on you!" Merlin said to the ninja.
Sora, Donald, Goofy and Maka nodded.
"Ah, yes. Did you give them the cards, dear?" he asked to Aerith.
"Cards? What cards?" Maka asked Soul as he was in this world first for sometime.
Aerith remembered as she got out her pocket were some cards.
"Here...they're presents for you and Maka." She said as she handed them cards to each of them, "Leon thought you might like to have them."
The membership cards were a rectangle and purple, that said..."Hollow Bastion Restoration Committee Honorary Member!" Sora said surprised at the membership cards.
"Membership Cards!" Donald said excited, "I also have one to Maka." Soul said holding his in front of Maka's face.
"Kinda cool, huh?" Goofy asked the other two, who nodded.
"Hey, thanks, Leahh...Huh?" Sora tried to thank leon, who was gone to the Bailey. "Oh no! We're suppose to be at the Bailey!" The others nodded.
But first, Merlin asked him if he could still use magic with his keyblade, to which Sora...Kinda forgot during his sleep.
So Merlin gave both Sora, and Maka something blue. It was the Blizzard magic which went into Sora's Keyblade, And Maka's blizzard went around Soul's hair to which he replied that it was cold.
And off they left.
Leon was faraway at the end of the Bailey as Sora, Donald, Goofy, Maka and Soul Eater came into the Bailey.
"Look at that." the gunblade wielder said, pointing over at a very weird looking castle (To which, Kid might have a fit on who built the place.) that had about thousands of Heartless' surrounding it.
"We want to restore Hollow Bastion to what it used to be." He continued. as Maka and Soul looked shocked at the building. "Who know-maybe even something better. There is still a lot to do, but I'm sure we can handle everything-Except...for that...And that." Leon then pointed down at two Nobodies heading strait for the building for who knows why.
seconds after seeing the Nobodies and Heartless, Sora told his friend that he, Maka, Soul, Donald and Goofy that they'll handle them.
"Well, that's good to hear." Leon said to his friend's helpfulness. "So Sora-do you know what's going on, then?"
Sora then told Leon. "There's this guy, Pete, who's going around plotting with the Heartless. But he's not smart enough to tie his own shoes. The ones we need to worry about are the Nobodies."
"I had an encounter with one on my arrival here." Soul said, who was probably not wanting to see some of the Nobodies again.
"And those Organization XIII guys in charge, too!" Goofy said. Telling them about the new enemies they have to face.
"You called?" asked a dark and mysterious voice.
Everybody wondered who said that, and Sora, Maka and Soul went to the outer entrance of the other castle.
"You're doing well, along with the trouble makers." said another one.
"Who's that?" Sora asked as he summoned his Keyblade and Soul transformed into a scythe and Maka grabbed him.
"This calls for a celebration..." Said the first voice.
Two Nobodies appeared faraway, making Donald and Goofy charge at them.
But when Sora, and Maka tried to charge at them, two more appeared in front of Leon, as he readied his weapon.
The Nobodies tried to go through the gate as it was closing, the Nobodies were going to destroy the gate to invade.
Sora and Maka went for the ones heading to the gate, as Leon went for the rest.
New Nobodies appeared in a samurai like appearance, along with the old Nobodies.
"BLIZZARD!" Maka yelled as Soul's scythe form began to have a cold breeze as some of the Nobodies disappeared from the Blizzard attack.
But just then, the Samurai Nobody readied it's sword, as well as Maka.
Little time has past, but just then...Maka slashed the last one, as well as Sora, and Leon destroyed the others. But Maka saw flames come from Soul's Scythe form meaning she knew a new magic attack.
"The Keyblade...a truly marvelous weapon." The voice came back. "Were it only in more...capable hands..."
The voice and others laughed, making Sora yell. "Show yourselves!"
Out appeared from a dark portal was a hooded person, a Nobody. He then lifted his hands up to summon more of it's kind.
And out appeared four or five more Nobodies of Organization XIII.
"Organization XIII!" Goofy, Donald, Maka and Sora said, seeing for the first time.
Sora looked at the others, nodding. "Good. Now we can settle this!" Sora called out, looking at them.
"What a shame..." The first figure said, in a fake sad voice. "And here I thought we could be friends."
"Who'd want to be friends with wack jobs like you?" Soul asked them, wanting to have their souls. But as Maka looked inside them, all she could see was...Nothing.
"Stay now trouble-maker!" The second figure said. in a surfer like accent.
The Organization XIII members all went into black portals again.
"Stop!" Donald called out as he ran towards them.
Another portal appeared, the same organization hooded clothing.
They all saw the same edge the Nobodies were. They disappeared.
"What's the Big idea?" Soul asked, making his arm into a scythe blade.
"Oopsy-daisy!" the same surfer accent Nobody said, in a fake sorry voice.
"Move!" Sora yelled at him, wanting him to move.
"Now do you think that's polite, shutting me down like that?" he asked, pretending to still be sorry.
"I said get out of the way!" Sora said again, still wanting him to move.
"As if! You can talk all you want, but that won't change a thing." The Organization member said, as if distracting them.
"Then we're going to make you move!" Soul called out as he completely transformed into a Scythe and Maka grabbing him.
"See, that would work-if I were just any old dude." The organization member said bored. "'Cept I'm not. I'm with the Organization. Nothing 'any old' about me."
Sora pretended to laugh. "Tough talk for someone who stood on the sidelines while his nobody flunkeys did the fighting!" Sora told the 'old dude'.
"Oh dear." The Organization man said, pretending to be afraid. "I think you got the wrong impression."
"You gonna cry?" Sora said, still holding his Keyblade.
The old dude wasn't impress. "As if! Why don't I remind you how tough the crowd you're dealing with really is?" The old man said telling the keyblader.
"Remind me?" Sora asked, wondering why he said that. "Don't answer that. I'm sure he's just bluffing." Maka told him.
Sora still readied his weapon, being even more mad at the Organization member.
The Organization laughed. "That's RIGHT, he used to give me that same exact look." He said, remembering the past.
"I guess you think you can psych me out by saying really random stuff!" Sora said, thinking he was trying to confuse him.
"Gee...I just don't know." The organization member said, looking at the others.
"Be a good boy now! And no more trouble making!" He said as he disappeared into his portal.
"Wait!" Donald said trying to reach him before the portal closed.
But he was to late. "Nuts! He got away!
"That was weird." Sora said, telling the others. "Who gave him the same look?"
"Y'know, I think he was just trying to confuse ya." Goofy said, telling it to Sora.
"Yeah, you're right. Only one me!" Sora said, knowing there was only him.
"But why did he call us trouble makers? We never met them." Maka said, trying to remember. But she got that out of her head for now.
Sora and Maka then got out their Membership cards.
"The Hollow bastion Restoration Committee Honorary Member-" Sora and Maka said at the same time.
But just then, Sora and Maka's cards glowed, the others were surprised.
And Sora's keyblade glowed, with Maka having three souls around her, one was her's the other was Soul's and the third one was Aslan.
"What's this?" Leon asked, wondering what it was. "Gwarsh ya think?" Goofy asked the others, but Soul was a bit confused at Maka.
Sora's Keyblade glowed more, as Maka placed her hands on each other like a prayer.
Sora's mark was a crown, while Maka's were the souls surrounding her, as she sang an unknown prayer. "Baba Yetu!"
Sora was in a strange plane, and Maka was over a wintery like place.
Maka sang another language, something like..."Please keep us safe."
Sora's Membership card glowed even more, creating a keyhole towards new worlds.
And he then pointed his Keyblade at it, a beam came out and into the keyhole.
Sora, and Maka were back at Hollow Bastion.
"Ohh...now I get it." Sora said to himself. "That must've been the gate Yen Sid talked about."
"Oh boy!" Donald said excited to go to new worlds.
"Sorry to run, Leon, but other worlds are calling." Sora told him, that the other worlds are in danger.
"I'll come with you!" Soul said, wanting to go with his meister.
Leon nodded. "Organization XIII...They look tough. Be careful out there." He said, know full well about the other worlds.
The foursome nodded. "See you soon." Sora and Maka said.
Leon saluted them in his own way, and they left for the Gummi Ship.
finally, finished. Can you guess where I got Baba Yetu from? From Civilization IV, the theme song, thought it would be fitting.
