The ring a bell was heard as Kita and Axel walked out of the candy bar, bags of candy in their hands filled with gummy bears, chocolate, and other candy they liked. They giggled and walked down the sidewalk, munching on their candy. "Hey Axel, did you know that we're having a new kid in class?" She asked. Axel turned to her and nodded his head. "Yep, I heard he was from Greece." He said. Kita siled wide and twisted and turned in excitement. "I wonder if he knows any gods~" She happily said. Axel smiled and patted her head. "I'm sure he knows great strories." He said. Before Axel could say anything else, a blue light flashed before them. Covering Kita, Axel put up his fists and prepared for anything to come through the light. Through that light, a young anthromorphic lizard-boy came through. His clothes were very formal, his cape had a design of a flaming dragon on it, his skin a dark green, and his eyes blue as Saphire. The boy looked at Kita and Axel with confusion. Axel growled and kept Kita behind him. "Hi! Sorry to pop in like that, do you happen to know where I am?" He asked, Axel kept his gaurd up and looked at the boy with confusion. "You're in Fission City." He said sternly. The boy's eyes widdened and glanced around. "Huh. Must've cast the wrong spell." He mumbled. Kita peeked from behind Axel and looked at the foreign boy. "Who are you?" She asked. The boy looked at Kita and smiled, he then bowed his head the moved his cape out of the way. "Sorry, let me introduce myself. My name is Azure, it's nice to meet you." He said. Axel slowly put his fists and down and bowed as well. "I'm Axel, and this is Kita." He said. Kita moved to Axel's side and bowed as well. "Awesome! I've been meaning to find other kids my age!" He shouted, Axel turned his head in confusion. "Where are you from?" Axel asked.
"I'm from Traverse, but I'm here looking for my grandparents. I think they're some where in Main." He said. Kita giggled. "Main is a long way from here...do you wanna hang out with us?" She asked. Axel's eyes widdened and gently took Kita a good distance away from Azure. "Kita, we don't know him, he could be here to suck our brains through our eye-holes." He said in a hushed tone. Kita puffed her cheeks and chopped his head. "Then, let's get to know him." She said, she then walked back to Azure and poked his nose. "Do you wanna hang out with us?" She asked him. Azure smiled brightly and nodded. Axel clentched his fists and forced a smile.
Later at the mall
"And then after, I kicked him right in the face! he didn't go down though, just got even more pissed at me. So I grabbed my sister and Felix and I ran like the wind." Azure finished. Kita looked in amazement, and Axel grumbled and mumbled about how lame he thought it was. Kita then rushed up and ran to the girl's bathroom. Axel grabbed Azure's shirt and glared into his eyes. "She's mine! I won't let you have her!" He shouted. Azure's whinned like a puppy and gently removed Axel's hand away. "Relax dude, Kita is a nice girl and all but I don't like her that way...Besides, I already have someone I like at home." He said. Axel's changed from angry to shocked. Depression had then hit him hard. "You do?...Geez, I'm really sorry, I didn't mean to grab you..." He said, Azure smiled and patted his shoulder. "No problem at all~ hey, I hear the movies is a fun place. I've never been, but Grandfather always tells me it's fun." He said. Axel smiled and slapped his back. "Ever see a horror movie?" He asked, Azure shook his head and turned his head in confusion. Axel smirked and looked in the direction of a rushing Kita headed towards them. "Sorry I'm late, the line was--what's going on?" She glanced at both of them in confusion. "Hey, Kita. Wanna see a scary movie?" He asked, Kita's eyes widdened. She had never seen a horror movie, her father always forbade her from seeing one whenever her uncles would watch one.
Screams and blood were shown on the screen, Kita scared out of her mind leaned close into Axel. Axel grinned big and held her close. Azure leaned close into Azure as well, Axel glanced to Azure, sighed deepy and held the both of them.
After the movie the three kids walked out giggling and gently shoving each other. They hadn't realized that a pair of grown and familar eyes were watching them. They then slowly turned around to see Ripster cracking his knuckles. "So, who's head am I gonna chop today?" He asked. Axel and Kita quivered in fear. Azure stood and stood his ground standing front of Kita and Axel. "Sir, you have no right to threaten my friends. As prince of Traverse I command you to back off and away from us!" He yelled
"Prince!?" Shouted Kita and Axel.
Ripster wasn't fazed and chopped his head. "I don't know who you are, but I'd like my daughter back." he said sternly. Azure rubbed his head and looked up at Ripster. Ripster gently moved the boy aside and chopped his daughter's head. "Where have you been all day?" He asked. Kita rubbed her head and kept staring at the ground. "I-I was with Axel and Azure...we were having fun." She said
"Well, that's good and all, but why didn't you call me telling me or your mother you were here?" He asked
"B-but I was having fun and--" Before she could finish, Ripster chopped her head again. Her eyes welt up with tears. "I already called your parents, Axel. They'll be here in a couple minutes. Azure, was it? I don't know your parents but you're free to come back with me and call them if you wish." He said. Azure then glared at Ripster and hugged Axel and Kita. Throwing a red clear crystal a portal opened. "I'll see you guys soon~!" He said as he ran through. Ripster's mouth went agape as he watched the boy go through the portal and close on him. "What just happened?" Ripster asked himself. Axel made a smug look at him. "That's our new friend." He said. Ripster chopped his head and walked off. Kita looked back and waved to him. Axel waved back to Kita, hoping her father won't end their friendship.
After being scolded by her father, Kita had made a pillow fort to keep her mind off of her father's words about how 'Axel is a bad influence' and 'how they never should have met'. Kita's eyes filled with tears, she hid her face between her pillows and quietly sobbed. A knock was heard as her mother slowly poked her head in. "Kita, are you ok?" She asked, Billy then knelt down and moved some of the pillows. "KIta's not here, she's in Pillowville." Kita mumbled. Billy chuckled and moved the pillow out of her face, and kissed her forehead. "Kita, your father didn't mean what he said. He's just worried is all. He only wants you safe." She said. Kita looked up with tears still in her face. She then wiped her face and hugged her mother. "Why would daddy say those mean things about Axel?" She asked, Billy held her daughter close and wrapped a blanket around them. "Daddy only said those things because he was scared, we didn't see you all day and we were worried." She said softly. Kita kept hugging Billy, tear started t form in her eyes again. Billy gently wiped Kita's face and smiled. "Hey, cheer up. I talked to daddy, and he said it was still ok to see Axel. Just, warn us when you're going out from now on okay?" She said, Kita nodded her head and cuddled more with Billy. Billy then got up and turned off the lights. She then sat down with Kita and looked at all the glow-in-the-dark stars attatched to her ceiling. "Mommy, will I be like you and daddy someday?" Kita asked. Billy looked to her daughter and smiled warmly. "Not just like us sweetie. But greater. You'll do great things one day. And people will remember them. Just so long as you believe, and think positive about the future. And remember angel, you don't choose who you love, you are destined to love the ones who have always been with you." Billy said. Kita looked up at Billy and smiled. "Destined?" She asked. "Of course, we're all destined to love one another. For better or worse, we love each other no matter what. And you are destined to do great things one day." Billy stated. Kita continued to look up at her false stars and reached out to one of them.
