You were at the stern deck, way out of view from the other crew mates. They all became drunk and laid out wherever they could as their body couldn’t stay up any longer so they ended up passing out.
You on the other hand had another desire; to practise on the abilities you managed to forget. For instance, you were trying to control the water or even the air. The furthest you got was to lift a small piece of loose wood from the deck only a few centimetre off of the ground before it fell back down.
You gave up as you plopped down onto the deck and let out a groan in defeat. You just looked towards the front of the ship, past the masts and sails as you looked at the sun slowly rising. The sky became brighter as it filled with oranges, pinks and purples with a hint of blue.
You laid down against the deck as you just stared into the sky, watching as the clouds scurried by to reach other places you may seek to go. You felt your eyes get heavy as you finally realised that you’re tired. Your eyes slowly began to close, no matter how hard you tried to keep them open, the dark abyss of your sleep slowly consumed you as you fell asleep.
Laughter of children filled the air as they played in the sand that was turning a beautiful orange with a hint of pink as the sun began to set. You were playing with them, like every other child in town as you all ran around as you felt the sand under your feet. You giggled as you played tag with them all, then hide and seek, all the wonderful childish games you could come up with. You smiled as you were hiding behind two barrels, filled with what is called ‘rum’ from what you heard.
You couldn’t hide your giggles as you were over-excited and pumping with adrenaline, you were just so happy to be here. You don’t want this to end! Never in a million years, wanting to stay a child forever! But of course, not everything is happy.
You were found by your fellow friend as he had startled you before you jumped from hiding and walked from behind the barrels. “Dangit! I thought that was a pretty good spot!” You said with your squeaky voice. The little boy chuckled. “It was since you’re the last one to be found!” He exclaimed as his high pitch voice too filled the area. You looked around and saw that everyone else was found and waving at you from two crates pushed together, also known as the jail. You hopped up and down in joy as you looked around, you suddenly came to a halt.
You looked out towards the distance of the ocean. “What is that?” You pointed in the direction you were seeking, squinting your eyes to get a better look of it. The little boy and other kids turned around and looked to where your finger was pointing at. “Isn’t that a..” “SHIP!” You all yelled. The little boy grabbed your hand and dashed to the town.
You both ran to the officials house as you ran inside and stopped. “SIR! It’s the Ayrith ship! They’re coming right for us!!” You screamed in terror. The guards looked at you both before more kids came running in, pure terror etched on their faces. The guards realised the situation at hand was terrible.
“Ring the bells! At last, it’s time for war!” He yelled to one of the fellow guards. “You kids, you know where to go, right?” The head guard said as he came down the stairs. You all nodded your heads quickly. “Go! Get to safety!” He yelled, and before you knew it, all of you dashed towards the woods to a chamber underground.
As you all ran you heard cannons being shot, the sound clouded your thoughts, making you scream and fall to your knees. “Aadya! You gotta get up!” That same boy said as he grabbed your arm and pulled you up to your feet as you ran again to the chamber.
You both ran as screams filled your ears until the unthinkable happened. One of the guards of Ayrith appeared in front of you. “Finally, I found you.” He walked towards you both. You looked at the little boy as he looked back at you. His beautiful hazel eyes staring into yours. “F**i*! Run!” You said and pushed him to the side as he stumbled over. “What! No, I’m no-” “Go!” You screamed.
The little boy frowned as tears threatened to pour from his eyes. “Please..” You whispered, yet, he still heard you. “I’ll be waiting!” He yelled before dashing away from you before leaving your sight. You turned back towards the man that stood in front of you. “You’re coming with me kid.” He said as he reached out for you, but you quickly ducked under him as you crawled between his legs and dashed through the woods, hearing him yell towards you before hearing his footsteps chase after you.
You ran as fast as you could through the woods, no matter how much the guard behind you threatened you to cease. And next thing you knew scared everyone. “TSUNAMI!” You froze in place as you turned to your left as you saw through the trees a humongous wave looking as tall as 70 feet.
You heard screams of horror from everywhere. But you couldn’t stay there, maybe if you run you’ll make it to the underground bunker. And that’s what you did, you kept running, not caring about how tired you felt. There it is, the bunker. You saw F**i* standing there, waiting for you just like he promised. “F**i*!” You screamed. He looked up once he heard his name. “Aadya! Look out!” He screamed. But it was too late.
You felt a sharp pain shoot through your ankle before quickly collapsing to the ground. You screamed in pain as you turned on your back. Before your eyes, you see the same guard standing over you. “Over my dead body that I’ll ever let you go..” He snarled with a chilling smile.
You turned and looked at F**i*. “Go! Just hide!” You screamed. “No! I’m not lea-” You cut him off with tears trickling on the verge of falling. “GO!” He began to cry to himself. “Promise you’ll be fine!” He yelled. You looked at the quickly coming wave then at the guy. You sighed. “I promise!” You lied. He nodded before going down the ladder to the bunker before closing the hatch as you heard it squeak, knowing he locked it.
You closed your eyes. “I’ll make sure you’ll die with me you-” He was cut off by the wave dissolving him and you with the rest of your surroundings. Taking everything in it in its path and anything it could reach….
...you watched everything and everyone quickly get swept up in the currents as you too did the same. As you drifted in the sea, lost, you met Hydra again as she stopped you from getting any further. “Aadya? What are you doing!?” They asked as concern was written on all of their faces.
You sighed as you shook your head as you swam up to the surface. “I can’t continue putting everyone in danger!” You spoke as tears rolled down your face in the immensity of the water trickling down you, back into the sea. “Hydra...please...please,” You sobbed as you quickly wiped your face, staring at each of the heads before finishing your sentence. “Erase my memories, everything! I can’t live on like this, I would rather suffer the consequences alone,” You sighed as you looked back down to the depths of the water.
“Aadya...you can’t be certain. Your emotions are getting to the best of you-” “I know what I want! If once I get older and more mature and my body tells me that I must remember who I am, then so be it, just...not now,” You sobbed once more.
They looked at you with pained eyes before agreeing one by one on your choice. “Aadya, I may not remember you when you get older as you will be living amongst humans, but I will tell you who are when I feel it’s the right time, your spirit will drift to me and I will remind you once again who you are,” They spoke before their eyes began to turn white as tears trickled down some of their eyes.
“Goodbye, my Queen,” You mumbled as you felt dizzy, soon collapsing in the water. Hydra frowned, disliking the idea but went with it. She placed you on her back as she took you somewhere, placing you on the shore before swimming away back into the shallows as she watched from afar.
You shot up as you gasped for air as you looked around as you saw someone crouching down next to you. “Everything alright? You were laying out here like a starfish on a rock,” He chuckled as he gently rubbed your shoulder. You finally made out the males distinctive features before mumbling out his name.
“Yunho?” You sighed before sitting back up and stretching your limbs out. “Thought you passed out after drinking?” You asked him as you turned to face him again, squinting your eyes from the sunlight overhead you’re not used to just yet.
He smiled before he sat fully down next to you. “I only drank a little, believe it or not, I have too much in my head. Plus if I were, I would be blabbering to everyone who you really are,” He chuckled at the end as he stared up at the pinkish orange sky.
“What are you doing out here? It’s pretty late, even for a Goddess like you,” He teased as he nudged you in the side with his elbow, making you playfully scoff at him. He let out a soft giggle before meeting your eyes.
His eyes twinkled under the bright sun as his silver blue eyes held so my care in them for you. The male that once hated females changed, seeing that not all have the same intentions and can actually be trustworthy. “Aadya?” He spoke, breaking you out of your little gaze in your head.
“Huh!? O-Oh, right!” You nervously spoke as you quickly turned away from him as you felt your face heating up from embarrassment. You heard him laugh as you just sat there with a flabbergasted expression, not believing you were actually daydreaming about him.
“I was just practising some things,” You muttered as you spoke the sentence rather quickly. Finally getting all the laughter out, he replied back. “Practising what? Combat?” He questioned, wanting to know more. “I spoke with my sword, y’know, the one you call that is all magical and stuff. Turns out there’s a possibility that I forgot some of my abilities.” You shrugged your shoulders.
“Abilities? As in your goddess ones or something?” He continued to ask. You nodded your head. His eyes had a quick gleam of excitement shooting through them. “Did anything happen!? Wh- What can you do?” He asked as he quickly got back up to his feet, like an excited dog once you start to get their favourite treats.
“Nothing. Nothing happened,” You sighed as you got up, dusting yourself off before looking at him again. He furrowed his brows as he crossed his arms. “Were you even concentrating?” He asked with a serious face and tone.
You glared at him. “What do ya think?” You rolled your eyes as you walked away from him to the railing as you looked back at the small waves crashing into each other. “Do you even remember what me and Jongho first taught you? If you focus too hard on mastering it, then you won’t be able to do it,” He said as he waited for a response.
You shook your head as you turned to look over your shoulder at him. “Do you think I wasn’t doing that?” You asked. He shrugged his shoulders. “By the looks of it. You’re too eager to just get it done,” He continued to give you words of the wise.
“How do you think you were able to heal people? You weren’t thinking about the powers,” You furrowed your brows as you looked at him. “But I was thinking that I wish they weren’t hurt,” You told him.
He nodded his head as he bit onto his lip, thinking of something. “Alright, I have an idea,” He said as he began to make his way to you. You raised a brow, watching his every move as he stopped in front of you. “Do you trust me?” He asked as he stared into your eyes.
“What in the bloody hells are you doing?” You asked, confused with his actions.. “Do you trust me?” He asked again as he then backed away from you, not daring to look away. “Of course, but-“ “Good,” He interrupted as he smiled. Your eyes widened. “I trust you,” He said before you watched him run and jump over the wooden fence, down into the sea below. “YUNHO!” You screamed as you leaned over the railing to look for him.
