A/N: I do not own Soul Calibur or its related characters. All rights go to Namco! (except Emma, which is me! Nobody owns me!)
Siegfried crawled towards Soul Calibur, kneeling in front of it, staring at its blade, basking in the pale blue glow of the sword.
"Thank you." He whispered to the sword. "I will repay you. I shall find redemption. I promise."
Siegfried grasped Soul Calibur, releasing it from Soul Edge, raising it to the ceiling.
"The True Sword of Salvation… is born."
She opened her eyes, attempting to adjust to her surroundings. She stared at two faces. One was a girl, with a headband around her head; another was a man, a scar running down his cheek. She smiled.
"I'm alive." Emma croaked, raising her head. She was on a bed, facing a waterfall, the sun pouring through a balcony window. Emma looked at her hand. The stars had disappeared. "I'm back at… the temple? What happened?"
"We brought you back." Seung-Mina beamed. "We are so glad that you are alive."
"What happened to…?"
"We had to leave Soul Calibur." Kilik sighed, holding Emma's hand.
"No, I wasn't asking about Soul Calibur… although leaving Soul Calibur was the right thing to do. I meant… what happened to Maxi, and the Alexandras?"
Seung-Mina's smile dropped into a frown. "We couldn't find them."
A familiar figure burst through the bedroom door. "You didn't need to." A man in a white jacket and slacks stood at the door, leaning into the door frame with his arms folded.
"Maxi!" Seung-Mina exclaimed happily, rushing over to Maxi, embracing him. "I was so worried about you!"
"You honestly didn't need to be." Maxi chuckled, hugging her back. "How is Kilik's angel?"
Emma's eyes drooped. "I don't think I am an angel anymore. My powers are gone." She mumbled, raising her hand, to prove it wasn't glowing.
"So it was your powers that were drained, not your soul?" Seung-Mina pondered, tilting her head to one side.
"Pretty much." Emma laughed, placing her hand back to her side. "But what I don't understand is… Xianghua was supposed to create Soul Calibur… yet she didn't have powers like I did… Did she?"
"No." Kilik muttered, his eyes narrowing in thought.
There was a knock at the bedroom door, followed by a voice. "Excuse me, but may I come in?" A soft female voice asked them. Maxi opened the door, to let a young woman come in, her golden blonde hair twisted into a loose plait, her dark blue and white outfit fluttering in the breeze flowing from the balcony.
"Sophitia!" Emma grinned, "What brings you here? Shouldn't you be at home in Greece?"
Sophitia greeted her in her usual manner. "Yes, but I had to check if you were ok. Plus, I would like to thank you."
"For creating the true Sword of Salvation. The gods, especially Hephaestus, asked me to thank you for creating Soul Calibur, as it balances out the evil in Soul Edge."
Emma sighed with relief. "Thank you, for your help." Emma beamed, before Sophitia modestly smiled, persistent to tell her that she was only helping.
"So did you defeat Astaroth?" Seung-Mina asked Maxi, looking up at him.
Maxi's eyebrows lowered. "No, he ran away, like the coward he is. What happened to the Azure Knight?"
"We defeated him." Kilik smiled, "He returned to his former self, although we left Soul Calibur with him."
"Are you sure the Azure Knight isn't still alive? The evil in the knight has been vanquished?" Sophitia wondered aloud.
Emma frowned slightly. "Well, let's hope for the best, shall we?" She picked up Northern Star, which was lying on the floor next to her, and read it. "The Legend Never Dies."
