    An unexplainable feeling of being drawn towards something, as if an invisible force was pulling your hand or pushing into your back. One step at a time, you would feel yourself getting closer to that elusive goal of yours, yet not knowing what it was that you were actually feeling. Leila was like that right now, as she slowly walked along the edge of Serene cliff, location that she had visited couple of times already in the past. The gentle wind was once more blowing relentlessly, forcing her silver and gray hair to dance in it’s grasp, along with the straws of green grass all around her. All it took was one look over the edge, allowing the girl to peer over landscape below, forests and rivers stretching as far as her eyes could see. This was the nature of Earthland that she came to love over the years. Truly, this world was all to her despite everything bad that had happened. To not look back and only move ahead, that was what she had to do. And so far, she was doing a pretty fine job of it, even if it meant somewhat avoiding the person she loved most. Though there was no doubt that she would have her moments with the black haired canine goddess in the future. It was only one of the many differences, another being the state of her own world named Gardens of Eden.

    Even after everything she tried, it was still filled with emptiness. Or rather, the world appeared that way because she was the only truly living being that belonged there anymore. All the spirits that used to answer her call were gone now, result of the goddess’ long absence. Looking back at it, sacrificing her everything for someone else was truly foolish. It caused so many problems, there was no way she could forgive herself for that so easily. And yet, all she wished for was the warm embrace of her spirits right now. Her loyal servants that she adored so dearly, those that she could trust without a spec of worry in her mind, thoughts of possible betrayal never even present. Did she really have to accept the fact that they were gone for good? She wished that she could, for she would at least be able to move forward in her life then. And yet, there was this mysterious force still pushing her forward, calling her name in the sweetest of voices, like a forbidden fruit hanging on a tree of death and life. And the closer she got to tearing this fruit from it’s branch, the more she was filled with warm and familiar sensation. Yes, she absolutely had to see where this would lead her, even if it was nothing more than her own subconsciousness playing tricks at her or even enemy trying to lure her away from the civilization and possible help. She was willing to take any risk just so that she could calm this feeling of hers, so that she could say that she did indeed do everything she could, even if it were to fail. That way, her mind would be clear of any doubt and what ifs.

    Finally, she would spot it. A place where the cliff went even above her elevation, casting a looming shadow over the girl’s petite form. Like a titan of rocks and soil, the mountain peered down onto the girl the same as she peered down onto the forest from her position. And a small crack in the stone wall, only barely large enough for a person to fit inside. With a slightly audible gulp, the Eden’s mage would gather all of her courage and determination, gentle squeezing her body clothed in the usual midnight blue armor. It was hard to move in such a small space, but nothing compared to other situations she had been through at this point. One step at a time, she would inch closer to the source of it all, the voice that was calling her. And finally, the slit in the mountain would widen once more, revealing a strange hidden area, seemingly untouched by the hand of curious man. A sanctuary made out of small meadow, the only light here being provided by bioluminescent plants growing all over the ceiling and walls, along with small strands of blue glowing water running down onto the grassy ground. A sight pretty as a picture painted by a true master. But nothing of that caught the girl’s attention, as she was already staring at something else entirely.

    A golden glimmer amidst the tall grass, an object of great familiarity just laying there completely unprotected. Surely this was naught but a pleasant dream? Something like this was simply far too… convenient. Far too perfect. Still, she couldn’t possibly just stand there and not believe that any of it was real. Finally tearing herself away from the initial shock, her until now motionless figure running towards the golden light at full speed as she slid into a kneeling position right in front of the object. Lifting it carefully as if it was a freshly born babe, Leila examined what she just found, tears running down her cheeks all of a sudden. It really was it… the golden Zodiac key, tool used to open gate of celestial spirit named Libra. The one singular spirit that served the girl, yet was not part of her world. It made sense she would survive and move on, and yet, the same owner found her way to the spirit again. And just like that, a brilliant light would paint the cave pure white for few following moments, only to reveal a dark skinned female clad in black kimono standing in front of the kneeling feeble girl. With looks exactly the same as she remembered, the Eden’s mage could only lift her head up, task that was almost taking all of her energy in such a sorry state. Their eyes met and locked together in a moment of pure emotions, ones that could not be rightly described by any means. Opening her mouth, the silver haired girl tried to speak. But no voice came out, a stone of uncertainty filling up her throat. The spirit understood well and was patient, eagerly waiting for the moment when that name would finally escape the girl’s lips.

    "Libra...?"

    "So you’ve finally found me again, master. I’m glad… the worry that you would never come back was growing inside of me despite my heart’s feelings and certainty. The moment you died and disappeared from this world, we knew that everything was over. And yet, we still wished and hoped… it seems that it actually worked. I’m so glad..."

    Now, even the spirit’s cheeks were suddenly covered in salty liquid as tears started streaming down her face. But she was smiling. They were both smiling. And it was not long until they finally broke their stances, ending up in a strong embrace as they hugged one another, refusing to let go. This was the true bond of summoner and their spirit. A bond similar to friendship, yet different. She was more like a… like a family. It was unfortunate, but even a beautiful moment such as this one could not last forever. The ground shook violently, magical power suddenly rising in the air. Something was outside of this place. Something that was drawn here by the magic released along with the key activating after such a long time. Breaking apart, they both knew that whatever it was, it should not be allowed into this place. And just like that, the two girls would nod towards one another after so long, ready to fight by one another’s side again. Their exit of here was about as ungraceful as Leila’s entry, given the low accessibility. But once outside, they would spot a large wolf of dark fur, eyes glowing with sinister read and fangs covered in drool. The beast was ready to feast on whatever prey it could find. And that was to be the two girls now. Only, with their friendship and contract renewed, it would probably not have any lunch today. Just like the old days, they still trusted one another. And for that, no words were necessary in battle anymore. Simple gestures and reading the other person’s movement was enough for them to work like a team. And so, a wave of gravity would push the advancing beast back as Leila moved to it’s side, a speak of roots and vines forming in her hands. With the wolf’s attention drawn towards Libra, she could easily strike it with the makeshift weapon, injuring one of it’s legs and impeding it’s movement. Gaining advantage like that, the celestial spirit would draw her weapon, a long katana that was until now hidden within it’s sheet behind her back.

    Not even approaching it, she performed several quick slashes, each one of them sending out a wave of compressed gravity cutting and pushing into the beast’s skin and cutting apart it’s fur. Despite it’s frightening appearance, this pup was actually not all that dangerous it seemed. Ready to end it all, the two girls would nod to one another as they prepared their grand finale attack. With all of her might, the zodiac spirit lifted the beast off the ground along with rubble and stone from the nearby area, all forming around the living creature like a cage until nothing more than a ball of natural resources was visible. And with another spear in her hand already prepared, the Eden’s mage would put all of her power into this one throw, sending the piece of wood like a bullet straight through the floating ball, shattering it into pieces along with the enemy inside of it. They both felt it from the beginning, but the creature was nothing that came out of the nature here. It was formed by dark magic and now dispersed, nothing more than black smoke was left. And even that dissipated into the air as the two girls reformed their contract once more, ready to take on the world again. However, that was but the start of all this. Libra was powerful, but she was only one single spirit in the end. Only one portion of what once was the Eden's Celestium. If the girl really wanted it all to be like in the past, this alone was not enough. Spirits that were once part of the Gardens of Eden... they were gone, died as the goddess left the realm. But now the girl was back. And along with the golden spirit by her side, perhaps it was not impossible to bring back what was lost? Maybe it was nothing more than just a wishful thinking... but it was worth a try at least.

    The existence of gods such as herself and her sister... she knew far too well how lonely it could be. Constantly enveloped by the deepest of darkness. And she too fell into that darkness from which she was unable to ascend. a tragedy that lead to her own death. But she managed to cheat it and stand back up, cleansed of it all. Miracles could happen. And with them, a glimmer of hope... a faint light at the end of a tunnel. Even if it wasn't much, it was still something. And that is better than nothing at all. There were many moments when the silver haired maiden thought her pockets were empty, devoid of any happiness at all. But there was no way that was really true. Even if she did go through so many hardships in her life, something would always brighten up her day. So right now, she would clench her fist with a smile on her face, drawing Libra's attention who too could now smile. The spirit and her owner were reunited and it was about time they rekindled the burning flame that fueled the life in Gardens of Eden. A link between the world of Eden, it's goddess and the most powerful spirit that was ever connected to it. If there was magic beyond one's reality in this world, then she will do all in her power to bring the past back!

    For better or worse, Leila was quite hardheaded when it came to things of great importance to her. Motivation to do anything at all. Somehow, she felt as if she lacked it in the recent days. But right now, power was coursing through her veins and she could not wait. She had Libra back. And even if this specific spirit was not born in the Gardens of Eden, she was connected to them for quite some time. A link like that should not disappear easily. Perhaps if used correctly, they could somehow control the flow of celestial magic within her world, redirect it and shape it once more. How were all those spirits born in the first place. Back when the goddess used name Aurora instead of Leila, she formed the entire world of Eden. And in order to not feel loneliness, she split her own imagine, almost creating a clone who would become the first spirit of Eden. From that one spirit, the rest was born. The magical particles, ethernano splitting in seemingly impossible way. But all is possible when faced against the power of miracles. She no longer had that power. Or rather, she did not have enough to do anything proper with it.

    "There is no need to worry, master. I will give you all of my strength if it's required! I too grew close to everyone else. It is not only your wish to bring them back, but mine as well. You are not alone on this road, you must remember that. That's what you told us and yourself back then, right? So do not hesitate, rely on me! Rely on everyone around you and we will extend a helping hand! Do not fear betrayal or sadness with us. We are your spirits... I am your spirit. And I will never abandon you again."

    They were nothing more than simple words to some, but to Leila, this meant so much. Why did she become a celestial mage in the first place? It wasn't because of the spirits in the Gardens of Eden. At that point, she wasn't even properly aware of them existing. It was because she felt lonely. After her father died and she was left all alone in this vast world, she just wanted company. And she did get it. In more ways than one. But tales of those adventures had to wait for another day. She could not wait another moment. They would begin their research and attempts to bring the Eden's Celestium back! No matter the cost... no, that wasn't it. Leila learned that phrase like that is powerful and should never be uttered. Paying the ultimate price for something was not right. She wasn't allowed to do it again. With a deep sigh, she steeled her body and sharpened her gaze.

    "Thank you. Let us do our very best together. And then, we can all celebrate and laugh about it together like we used to! Yeah, once we finish this, I'm preparing a party for all of you!"

    Both girls smiled at one another. First things first, they had to return to their own world where it all began. Leila recalled how she came to learn of this magic the first time around. But right now, there was no voice in her head that would guide her. Aurora... she was gone for good. And while her powers lived on, her consciousness did not. Funny how many problems she caused, yet how much happiness she managed to bring at the end. Unknown was gone as well, the miracle demon would not bother them no more in this endeavour. If that was for the best or not, they didn't know yet. With clenched fist, the Eden's witch would bring her hands forth, strange seals appearing on her pale skin. The mark of Eden, a bark-like skin spreading across her form. And soon, small branches started growing from the girl as if she herself was connected to the Earth, nothing more than another tree. With the connection between her and her magic still so weak, things were little bit more complicated than usual. Even conjuring a gate to her home world became quite difficult. But after some time, a wooden gate was formed and separated from the silver haired maiden. Gate that soon activated, a silken curtain of magic waving and swaying. It's blue hue illuminated all around them, the power radiating from other side giving a similar vibe to the Wakusei portals.

    "Alright, let's go!"

    The dark skinned spirit nodded solemnly and followed her master through the gate. This was the determination she was used to seeing. Determination that allowed Leila to overcome all the obstacles that she went through over the course of her life. And now they were here, getting it all back. Honestly, she couldn't help but chuckle as her own frame disappeared in the gate which soon crumbled into pieces, not allowing anyone uninvited to follow the duo into their world. That sanctuary was their's alone.

    On the other side, a very familiar sight greeted them. A vast world that was overlooked by a starry sky, it's darkness still illuminating and beautiful to gaze upon. Ground was on the other hand clad in azure blue grass that stood tall, at places reaching even to the girl's knees. And among it, many different flowers. Both ones that could be found in Earthland itself and completely new ones, exclusive to this world. A special aura was coming from all of it, as even trees had it's trunks covered in ivory white color, their leaves of same color as the grass down beneath. And glowing fruits luring smaller creatures with their alluring glow, almost whispering and taunting to bite into them. It really was a fantasy world born from an empty imagination of a goddess that knew not of anything. A truly impressive sight that was anything but the empty black void. Though it also evolved quite a bit over the time, new addition being formed by Leila's powers at all times. Especially the sea of stars, a small project the girl was working on in her spare time. But that was already her getting far too distracted from their main goal. Right now, they were at the same place where all gates always lead. A small meadow in hill that overlooked a good portion of this place. But their destination? A titanic tree in the distance, reaching to the heavens. It was visible from everywhere, as that was the center and core of this dimension.

    "Haaah, feels good to be finally back. Can't believe how much I missed this place. Celestial world is nice and all, but... it does not compare to this. Our tiny planets are mostly barren and never filled with this much beauty. Perhaps it's because a very innocent mind came up with all of this?"

    A small wink headed towards the spirit's master. Libra was always slightly teasing and like this. Well, it certainly was nice to have someone to talk to in this place for a change. At times, it was a quiet place where one could escape to and hide themselves from the noise of other people. But sometimes it could become far too quiet for the girl's taste. With the spirits around, there was always something going on, smaller or bigger. Always a tea party that one could join or maybe a scuffle between the funny pumpkins of this world. And they would probably have plenty of time to talk as they traversed this place.

    "Okay! Judging by how things went with that beast, you still can use your powers, right? That big tree is our destination and it will be quickest if we head there in a straight line through the air. As nostalgic as a walk through the entirety of Gardens would be right now, I think we should start our work as soon as possible. Then we can all go together, repair what was broken and make sure everyone still has their home intact. Wouldn't want you all to be sleeping without a roof above your head~"

    Not that it would ever rain in this world. Clouds were something that simply did not exist here at all. Only the eternal night's sky. Still, it made Libra chuckle and that was pretty much the goal of that. And as she did, her body started flowing effortlessly, gravity all around her bending to her will. Truly, her powers were one of the most useful Leila had ever seen. Both in combat and outside of it, having this spirit around was just plain helpful. Thought it would be even better if Aurora's tear was still in her possession, allowing the spirit to remain summoned indefinitely. Right now, the girl's magic was being sucked away at a constant rate, only the fact that this land was saturated with magic helping it.

    "You say that, but are you sure you want to be carried by me? As far as I remember, you wanted to be the knight in white shining armor who would carry her princess around, not the vice versa."

    The word princess still resounded somewhat bad inside of the Eden's witch, but she already learned to move on from failure and negativity. So instead, she smirked as rather large number of thin, yet long branches started growing out of her back. A skeleton which soon sprouted leaves and petals, taking on a shape of two plentiful wings that flapped around some before letting the girl float in the skies as well. Just by looking at them, not many would be able to judge that they can indeed fly. Something as simple as few twigs and leaves? But these were quite something in terms of magic control and infusion, rendering them quite special indeed.

    "No need to worry. I've managed to learn few new tricks on my own. You probably wouldn't even be able to beat me if we were to race now~"

    A constant back and forth of teasing, a friendship that was strangely familiar to the ones forged between humans. Well, there was not much that could be commented on that at this point, was there? The girls took off and started soaring through the fresh air of the Gardens, taking the magnificent view in. Even like this, it would still take some time before they would reach the core of this world, meaning they did indeed have plenty of time as of right now. Perhaps the scale of this world was too big after all? If more of her power returned, then surely Leila would become capable of changing this dimension as much as she'd want. Growing it bigger or smaller, perhaps adding new parts or removing what she did not want. Well, she already kinda tried to make something like that happen. Surely Libra managed to see it in the corner of her eye too, an expansive lake that reflected the night's sky perfectly. That was the Sea of Stars. She grew curious, but did not ask what it was just yet. Seeing how excited Leila was about trying to bring all the spirits back, she did not want to delay this any further, so she would ask about this new expansion later.

    Many different topics were discussed as the two girls soared next to one another, the main topic being all that had transpired between her losing all the keys and now. Every single adventure and discovery, both good and bad. Suffice to say, Libra felt sad for her master by the end of it. While the positives surely outweighed the negatives, the bad events that happened were still... saddening to say the least. Matters of love and friendship were always painful. And losing someone very dear to your heart was something that one should never go through. But all of that was in the past now. Slowly, the great tree grew even larger as they approached it. Swiftly landing on the lush grass-covered land around it, Leila would stretch and her wings of nature dissolved into nothingness.

    "Haah, it's always weird approaching this place. And not only because we had that final showdown with Aurora in there. Just getting near it is like... my very existence resonates. Heh, maybe I'm just weird."

    "No, I can somewhat feel it too. It's strange to say the least. I think it's the proof just how powerful the dimension building magic you received was. Shame those demons don't use their powers for something good like that all the time instead of screwing others over..."

    Then, the world would surely be perfect. But maybe it was for the best that it wasn't. Perfection could become rather boring awfully quickly. That said, Leila always wondered what the full story behind Unknown was. After Aurora was defeated, he completely disappeared and never returned. Was it perhaps because he knew that the god's lineage was corrupted and that it would slowly erode her? It was entirely possible. But now, she was revived by a completely different miracle demon. Something that may have broken apart Unknown's plans. So maybe he would show again one day? It was not out of the question. Right now, she definitely could use his powers to achieve her goal.

    "Last time I was bought here through my dreams, since I wasn't able to conjure a proper gate yet at that point. I don't know why, but Fleta's celestial key just kinda grew out of this tree. It's pretty weird to think about now that I understand who she was and that she was in this world all along, even before this me actually existed."

    It was good that Leila wasn't the type of person who would go through existential crisis when informed that they were nothing more than a shard chipped away from someone else's soul. She took it for what it was and continued on, refusing to have her consciousness consumed. A struggle against herself. No one could properly describe the emotions that both her and Aurora felt when their spar finally came to an end. They were one and the same. But because of the long separation, they became different. And when merged, only one consciousness was allowed to remain. A tragic tale indeed, precisely what the miracle demon wanted. No wonder he was entertained enough to leave after all was over. Nothing could possible top that and tormenting the same being over and over would grow boring eventually. Their own way of fighting the boredom... perhaps it was the curse of their power. Ability to make miracles happen... to will anything into reality. They were far too strong. So strong that everything around them became dull. So in the end, perhaps it was them leading the tragic existence.

    However it really was, there probably wasn't much of a point trying to think about it. Extending her hand forward, the girl walked and touched the giant tree's trunk with naught but her bare hand. Truly, she felt the magical flow inside of this thing, it was quite insane. So much magic concentrated in one place, this tree truly was the core of this entire world. But nothing else really happened. This was a completely normal reaction, nothing special at all. And no signs of a key suddenly growing out of this thing. Unless it was happening on the other side of it, which would be just cruel. But even after minutes, perhaps even hours of time spent on searching for anything by both of the girls, the really was absolutely nothing. That it would be the same as last time was probably just a very wishful thinking. Well, there was still another place that needed to be looked at. The tree, even if it didn't look like it, was actually hollow at the bottom. The true core lied there, a plain where she and Aurora fought. As much as she didn't like returning there, she had to right now. And so, alongside Libra, they made their way to the entrance. A small hall between the countless roots and branches that grew all over the place here. And then, steps down.

    As if entering a completely new world once again, they were greeted by another view of darkened heavens. A layer of magic that made the inner walls of this tree completely transparent, giving the illusion of having another pocket reality within it. With only few more steps, they found themselves on a plateau of grass and pure white flowers that extended as far as one could see. A cliff that slowly grew more narrow, beyond it's edges nothing more than the void itself. But at it's very end, a solitary tree which grew from the spot where Aurora died. Approaching it, the Eden's witch placed her hand gently on this one as well. While it was not exactly connected to the core of this world, this small tree held great power too. But as was expected, unless it was somehow connected to the Gardens themselves, there was absolutely no result. With a sigh, the girl moved her hand through her hair and ruffled it a bit before sitting down.

    "So... any ideas? I lead us here, but... truth be told, I don't exactly have any plan for this. You're a spirit and connected to this place. But how to use that in order to bring everyone back, I really don't know."

    Her voice was filled with hints of sadness and despair, making Libra pace around restlessly with one hand on her chin as she tried to figure things out as well. The excitement from before, all that hope, slowly fading away as minutes passed by.

    "Well, we only tried the most basic of things. For now, let's just look around together, then on our own. We have all the time we want, so let's take our time and properly think about the situation as we examine this place as much as we can."

    And so, time would start passing. Minutes of searching and experimenting turned into hours, then days...time was something that a bit hard to track in this world, seeing how it was always night. But the longer they remained, the less they knew what to do. Eventually, Leila found herself sitting by the Sea of Stars, absentmindedly staring into the beautiful reflection. It was so alluring, almost begging her to just jump in there and swim between the different heavenly bodies. That was it's purpose, so that the spirits would have someplace they could relax while enjoying the fresh water. It's appearance was just a little bonus that went along with it. A long and loud sigh. The Eden's witch buried her face in her knees as she moved them closer to her head, embracing them with her hands. What now? They were out of options, there was absolutely no way of connecting Libra's magic to the core of this world. The only one who was ever truly connected to the core was Aurora herself, a girl that perished a long time ago. And even though she and Leila were exactly the same person, that power was now lost. Lost to death and void that consumed the girl when she chose to sacrifice herself for the forgotten friend. Honestly, she was ready to cry at this point. At least until the one remaining spirit showed herself nearby, waving elegantly at her master.

    "Here you are. Please, don't be hiding from me master. I won't bite you even if you will lose this search for clues, so cheer up!"

    "Aaah... sorry. I allowed myself to get a little sad again. Don't mind it, I'll be fine. Just need to focus on things for a bit instead of letting my mind wander freely like that. It always ends with me thinking about unnecessary things."

    Saying it like that, perhaps it meant that boredom was the girl's greatest enemy. When she was left alone with her own thoughts, it never ended very well these days. All the bad was slowly getting to her. But at least she now had Libra around, someone who could distract her and make sure those thoughts were left in the dark depths of her mind where they belonged. The spirit slowly walked to her master's side, sitting down and resting her head against the witch's shoulder. Quite unusual, but very pleasant.

    "You worry too much. As I said, we have all the time we could ever want. You're not bound by anything, so forget Earthland for a bit. Or go back there and maybe clear your head. We'll figure things here eventually. Just gotta give it some time. Falling into despair just because we didn't find the answer in a week or two? That's just ridiculous. We're trying to figure out how to bring back dead spirits after all. But don't worry. No matter how long it will take, I'll always remain by your side. Well, provided you don't lose my key again~"

    At some point, the Eden's witch might have even had a tear run down her cheek. All living beings naturally craved companionship, some more than others. But there were none that could truly go their whole lives without such thing and be happy. Often the girl wondered just how her life would be if she had never encountered the Miracle Demon who called himself Unknown. He was the one to give her power, one that allowed her to create a whole world they were in right now and even living beings that lived in it. And further, because of this world, she eventually forced to visit Earthland. Without that one starting point, none of this would be happening. She would have remained a lonely creature walking the Abyssal plains of the dimensional void. Not knowing happiness, nor loneliness and sadness. Existence that was content with anything at all. Was it sad? Was it beautiful? Perhaps there was no one who could really judge that. But what even was the point of thinking about something that will never happen? The present was now past could never be changed. And even if a way to change it was found, these memories would remain, what truly happened engraved into a single fragile mind. Bad experiences were still experiences. And the girl's adventure was still far from over. She had already went through so much, yet an infinite possibilities were laying right in front of her. The only question she wished to have an answer to right now was - with whom exactly could she tackle this uncertain future?

    "Thank you."

    The one companion she hoped she could count on always was right next to her. And suddenly, she got up, nearly letting Leila fell to the side as the force that was stopping her lean quickly vanished from where it was. Something clearly stole Libra's full attention, as she probably would not have done something like that in such serious and emotional situation as a joke. Watching her from behind as her steps took the dark skinned female closer to the sea of stars, all the way to it's very edge. Surely it wasn't that breathtaking.

    "W..what is it? See something you like?"

    "This feeling... what is it? So familiar, yet distant. It's like a voice calling out to me in such lonely tone. It's..."

    Crouching down, Libra would run one of her hands across the water's surface, submerging few of her fingers for just a moment. But that one moment was clearly enough for something to happen. Completely stopping in her tracks, it was as if the spirit froze in time and space. Only a minute or so of completely dreadful silence did she stand back up, somewhat clumsily. Leila could only wonder if this was a joke to maybe break the negative atmosphere which was created a bit earlier. But that idea was shattered the moment her spirit turned around to face the witch. While she appeared exactly the same, there was... something different. Almost like the feeling when person can recognize which twin is which without having any details that would help. Just a... feeling.

    "It has truly been a while, has it not? Leila."

    A swirl of emotions, both positive and negative. Confusion slowly setting in as the reality itself became twisted with what was happening. A voice most familiar escaped Libra's lips, a voice that did not belong to the spirit in the slightest. It was a heavenly, gentle voice. Yet at the same time, violence and anger walked in it's path. Being once consumed by wrath. But she grew too tired of it all and submitted herself to the fate of the gods that were toyed with by the Miracle Demons. Was it truly her standing right there? But if so, how could it be? Without even noticing it herself, Leila started backing off until her foot eventually ran into a small stone, causing her to fall back onto her behind, a blank stare directed right in front of her at the possessed spirit. And then, finally, a single word would manage to resonate in her throat, shaky and filled with uncertainty. But audible enough for the spirit to smile widely.

    "Aurora...?"

    That name once again. Honestly, she had thought that she would never hear it ever again. But here she was, uttering it herself. The name that was hers at some point. Right, she was Aurora Solaris. A goddess born from a cluster of magical power floating freely in the eternal void between worlds. She was given sentience and life. But that was it. A tragic being fated to walk the darkness for all eternity. However, that fate was broken by a cruel demon that offered her powers beyond one's imagination. And with those powers, the Gardens of Eden were created from nothing at all. That is how this world came to be. And with it, the goddess assumed name Aurora. Of course, all of that came at a great cost. The demon wanted the goddess' soul in return. But dying after finally obtaining her happiness? No, she didn't want that. So she created new magic that would allow her to be reborn, leaving her old self behind and null the contract that tied her. But a human of all things managed to intercept this magic, tearing her soul into two pieces in the process. That was the story of Aurora separating, one half continuing on as her own self and the other half landing in Earthland and eventually becoming what is now known as a girl named Leila Vergious. In a sense, Leila and Aurora were the same person. Clones, twins that started as the same entity but grew to be their own beings. Perhaps it was far too difficult for mortal mind to understand, but the Eden's witch understood it perfectly. What she did not understand was why Libra spoke as if she was Aurora! The original half of the soul was no longer around, she perished by Leila's own hand when she and her dear friend Jiyu Kazehime tried to reclaim this world. And they were successful in that task. So how... what magic was at play here?!

    "Yes! I am very glad that you haven't forgotten me yet, Leila. It's truly been a while, don't you think? In fact, I didn't think we would ever meet again after I gave my goodbyes while lying below the core of this world. This situation is most peculiar."

    It really was. The silver haired maiden was completely stunned, her body not moving an inch. Only listening. That voice which guided her for so long. That voice she wasn't supposed to hear ever again. Was this a good thing? Or a bad one? And what became of Libra's own consciousness. She had all the question and Aurora possibly held the answers. But she wasn't even properly able to ask it all because of the shock, until finally, her she speak up again.

    "What... why... how...?"

    Only the most primal of questions would be formulated by a mind that was spinning in circles, trying to make sense of what it was perceiving. Hearing something so seemingly pathetic, Libra's body would sigh and gaze on the girl gently.

    "Truly, can't you express more positive emotions when seeing me? There is no need to worry about anything. Libra is just fine. I simply made her fall asleep for a little while. And before anything, I have to thank you beyond all."

    Finally shaking most of the shock off her, Leila would quickly stand up in somewhat defensive state and look Libra directly in the eyes. She could see it. That fragile soul shining with a blue light was in there, waiting. It's life flame weak, but determined to not go out. Alive, even without her own body. But alive nonetheless.

    "Thank me? And why? I didn't try to bring you back!"

    "And while that is disheartening, you did actually brig me back. Look around yourself and tell me what you see, dear. The expansive sea which reflects the faded stars of Eden that once were creatures that I created from my own self. Just how did you create it?"

    It was then that something hit the Eden's witch. The power she used to expand Gardens of Eden, to create this Sea of Stars, as she called it, came from the Gardens themselves. It was a world shaping ability, though weak, still existent. Then...

    "Don't tell me... the power I used was the exact same power you used to create this whole world? But there was so little of it..."

    "Correct. And while there is little of it left now, that doesn't mean it was always like this. What you used was the power given to me by that annoying demon child. It was given to me and to me alone. Power brought about by the elegance of miracles... it was tied to my very soul. And you awoke it, used it to create something. And from that something, a single soul shard of mine recovered and activated. The moment this spirit of yours touched the sea, I was able to use her body as a temporary vessel. Worry not, I don't plan to live like this from now on."

    Even a single shard of a soul was capable of holding one's pure will and ideals, the things that make you you. Without even realizing it, Leila managed to recover the last spec that was left of her old self and revive her that way. She was nothing more that a self floating in the sea of pure thought, using another's body to interact with the physical world. Some would call that a pathetic existence, but... it was better than being 'dead'. Shuddering at the memory of her own experience with the 'afterlife', the girl lowered her head in seemingly apologetic manner before speaking out again.

    "So that means our soul was split into more than just two pieces when the old magician attempted to steal our power. But the other shards were far too small to form their own will when separated from the whole. I see... it makes sense, doesn't it? Heh... isn't that funny? It seems our plan to evade payment of our soul really did work after all. Though I am surprised that Unknown didn't notice something like that. If he comes back because he learned that you're back..."

    "Unknown? Ah, so that's what you started calling him, huh? They truly are greedy demons, not even giving us their name in return. Perhaps he did notice it already too. Recall his last words to you before you decided to take my existence and our lineage for yourself, Leila. The dept is gone, for he had enough fun watching us suffer. Though I would not believe him completely, as I'm positive there are still some strings attached. The biggest question, however, is why are you no longer defensive? Fufufu, don't you wish to fight me again so that you could potentially regain your abilities once more?"

    It was probably easy to assume something like that after everything that had happened.  But Leila only smiled and shook her head. She no longer wanted any conflict. She only wanted to live in peace with all that she had. Her journey still continued, but it was much more tame one than the one before. Because now she knew that she didn't have to suffer in order to gain happiness.

    "Whatever are you talking about, Aurora? I am more happy than ever to see you back! Without the demon... we can live together! There is no reason for us to compete or struggle against one another. And even if he comes back, rather than going with his wish and trying to slaughter the other one, we should work together and conquer them all! We... we are like sisters, in a sense. Right? I always wanted a sister, hehe..."

    A weak and pathetic laugh accompanied by a tear running down her cheek. Only now that the girl said it out loud did she realize the weight of it all. The fortune that she and Aurora had together, the future they could seize and mold together. There really was no need to fight at all, was there? Their struggle... it was finally done. And now, they could move towards their happiness together. She surely realized it too, as Libra's body signed lightly before smiling as well.

    "So you arrived at a conclusion like that. Haaah, I'm glad! Honestly, I was prepared to embrace my ultimate end once again. I managed to possess your spirit here, but I have absolutely no control over her abilities. And my own are gone without a solid body as well. I would stand no chance if you chose to destroy me. I... I am sorry. I was the one who tried to kill your originally, to take back the piece of soul that was stolen from me. It was originally mine, but is no longer. It grew into it's own person, into you. And in a sense, that is the same as me creating al the spirits in this world from my very own being. It was unfair. If you ever give me a chance, I was to accept you. And for you to accept me. Speaking of all that... where is everyone? This spirit is the only one I sense and she was brought to this world by you, not me."

    Leila was of course very happy to hear all of that. Being accepted... of course she would accept Aurora! Without a second thought in fact! Perhaps something like that was a bit naive and dangerous, considering their relationship in the past. But she was willing to give it a try nad bear all the consequences if it all came crashing down. However, she wasn't quite able to express her excitement and delight because of what her other self asked at the end of her little speech. She was the one who originally gave life to Flete, Harpae, Lisette and even Yuki. They were her spirits and guardians. And now they were gone. Tears were running down the silver haired maiden's cheeks as she tightly grabbed her own skirt, looking into the ground.

    "I'm... I'm so sorry... both my physical body and divinity were destroyed at one point, my soul shattering. I'm here now only because of another miracle demon's power, but... in my absence, all the spirits perished, as they couldn't exist in this world without someone acting as the god. It's all my fault, I am so sorry..."

    Those words did stop Aurora in Libra's body for a bit, but she regain her composure quickly as she turned around to face the Sea of Stars. Placing her slender fingers on her chin for a bit, she buried herself in a deep thought, closing her eyes and then opening them again with a faint smile adorning her expression. She was the goddess of this world. And despite her situation, she did know the most about it. Turning back to Leila, she took in a deep breath before elaborating.

    "After I perished, you became the new goddess of this world. But then you perished yourself, losing that position as well. Not the Gardens go on, using it's own power it accumulated over the centuries to sustain itself. But we both returned. Fusing our essence... if we do that, we might be able to restore the right of a god to one of us. And with it, that one could bring everyone back!"

    It almost sounded too perfect to Leila. But she was willing to try, that burning desire from before still remaining inside of her! Mustering the willpower to stop her tears from overflowing and wiping what were left with the midnight blue sleeve of her armor, she nodded in a confident manner. She and Libra were here to bring back all the spirits, after all. That was their mission and they were willing to do just about anything to get the residence of this world back. Instead, they brought the one who created this world back and now she had a plan of action. It could have very well been a trap Aurora was planning, one that would get Leila out of the picture and give her back her lost powers. But... risks had to be taken. If a person wasn't willing to take any risks, then they would never move anywhere they wanted to!

    "Good. Normally, fusing an essence of two people that were originally one wouldn't be too difficult. However, my body is no longer. I will return to the Sea of Stars where you will be able to retrieve me in a solid state. That will also give your dear spirit back her body. But before we do any of that, we need to resolve this... which one of us will become the goddess of this world, the ruler of it who will sustain it for all eternity?"

    Even Libra's gaze became quite serious now. Truly, only one of them could stand on top of the pyramid. But the silver haired maiden already cleared her head. Placing her hand on her chest, feeling her heart for just a moment, she knew which one of them should be in that role.

    "I have stolen those powers, that lineage from you in the first place. I have no right to ask for it again. And what's more, you have way more experience with it than me. It should be you, Aurora. If you're okay with it... I want you to be the goddess of this world that I love more than anything."

    And so it was resolved. Libra simply nodded and smiled, glad that her other part made up her mind so firmly. With that, there should be no regrets when all is done and cannot be reversed. With one final deep breath, she would turn around one final time and submerge part of her body in the sea. Here, the gears would start turning. Here, the flame of the Gardens would be rekindled once more!

    "Once I'm gone from your spirit's body, submerge your hand in these waters. And the moment you feel something solid, grab it! After that, just head to the core of this world. I'm sure you'll know what to do once you're there. Together, we shall reclaim what was meant to be ours!"

    And with that, Libra closed her eyes and stumbled back, falling to the ground as if she suddenly lost consciousness. A mysterious blue aura quickly left her body, merging with the reflective water and concealing it's presence. How come Leila never noticed it when she created this addition to the Gardens? Well, it mattered not. Rushing to her spirit's side, she made sure that she was fine. And fine she was, as she opened her eyes and spoke out in confused voice.

    "Master... what... what just happened?"

    "Relax. I met someone... very dear to me. Unfortunately they had to borrow your body in order to speak to me, so allow me to apologize on their behalf. It probably wasn't very pleasant, but we now have a new method to try that could bring all the spirits back and even stabilize the Gardens themselves."

    Hearing that, Libra quite literally jumped out of her master's caring embrace, all the fatigue and confusion seemingly gone and replaced with enthusiasm. She wanted to bring everyone back herself, after all. Months of Leila's service, it didn't seem like much. But it was enough time to form truly great bonds with her and the other spirits. Friendship and respect intertwined. And while it was her who always reminded her master to wait and be patient, but when a chance like this presented itself? Even she wasn't properly able to contain herself. Especially now, as she somewhat knew just who possessed her and talked to the Eden's witch.

    "Let us proceed then, master. If that plan comes from someone who is truly dear to you, then I have no doubts that we will get results!"

    It was that enthusiasm that quickly awoke the silver haired maiden from her day dreaming state. Meeting Aurora was truly like a dream come true, as they were finally able to talk as friends, not enemies. But there truly was no time to be wasted here! And so, Leila quickly got up as well, stepping forward to the sea of her own creation. Something that was meant to be but a fun relaxing spot for her and her spirits turned out to be a revival site for her own old self. Truly, the universe never ceases to amaze with it's weaving fate and events thrown into every step of one's life. Recalling the words that resonated deep inside of her mind, she thrust her palm into the water which appeared black as a tar, feeling something soon enough. Just as she was instructed, she quickly grabbed and pulled back, expecting some kind of resistance and faltering slightly when none took effect. But she did manage to stay on her legs and could not gaze on what was resting in her grip. A beautiful sword that reflected the universe within itself, a powerful magic radiating from it, as well as beauty unheard of. This was the form Aurora took.

    "Even when taking the shape of a weapon, she still has to be briliant as all the stars in the sky, doesn't she?"

    "Yeah. But that's fine, isn't it? Being beautiful... it certainly has it's perks not everyone would want to throw away, even if their body is nothing more than just a sword meant to cut down one's foe. But let's not dwell on this too much. I'm sure she will regain her true body soon enough. Back to the core!"

    And so they found themselves back below the giant tree. The hill still as serene as before, the white flowers dancing in the gentle breeze. And in front of them, the shining tree overlooking the black abyss. This tree grew in the same spot where Aurora perished. And now, that Leila held the weapon in her own hand, she realized exactly what she had to do. As if guided by the goddess' will, she would silently take her steps and inch closer to the tree while Libra moved herself back and out of the way. Her purpose in this revival was merely to lend a body to the goddess, allow her to explain the whole plan. And now that act was finished, leaving the Zodiac spirit as a mere spectator to the show that would soon go down. And what a show it will be without a doubt! With a steeled up grip, the silver haired maiden took her final breath before lifting the weapon above her head, holding it firmly in both of her hands. And with one powerful swing, she would cut right down onto the tree, forming a vertical line in it's center. A line that soon would burst with magical energy, forming a giant pillar in the center of this world. A pillar to reach the skies and colored them a beautiful shade of azure blue. The blade itself shattered into many pieces, leaving only the hilt still resting in Leila's hand as the light forced her to take several steps back herself.

    And it the light, there she was. That tree... it was what was left from Aurora's original body. A strike from a sword that was formed by Aurora's soul and force behind it provided by Leila, their essence fused. And now, the soul was finally one again, even if for just a mere moment. And as one, Aurora was revived in the brilliant light to rule over the Gardens of Eden anew! That was how it was meant to be from the very beginning. Leila was but a byproduct of the goddess' actions. But that didn't mean she had no place in here. She was accepted by all the spirits before, and now even by the goddess herself. She was not the goddess of the Gardens. Rather, she was the caretaker of them, making sure that everyone and everything could go on happily, without having to worry about nothing. She was a wanderer that loved Earthland, so this only made sense. Finally, she could smile freely. The heavy burden of having to lead this world to prosperity was gone and taken up by another. And as the light lit up the skies and refreshed the world, new and yet familiar figures would walk out of the pillar as well. The spirits that perished, revived by the power of a new goddess that originally gave them their lives, their free will. As if with a simple snap of a finger, all was to how it was meant to be. They finally made it. And still, this was but a beginning of a new journey for the girls. Nothing was over, for from it actually.

    Yes. I might be the goddess of this world, but you are it's caretaker. Let us walk this path together... and together, we will emerge victorious. Together, we shall bring glory to the Gardens once again. I am sure everyone here agrees, no?

    "Yes... let's!"
