the loss of hope

who: lightning & hope
summary: hope has been cleansed by Bhunivelze, efficiently possessed by him.


Hope had been missing for nearing one hundred years. No one went to go look for him, no one went to see if he was still alive and many thought that he disappeared in the Chaos. Unfortunately, he was found by Bhunivelze and continuously tortured until he succumbed to the mental, physical and emotion wounds and gave into the tormenting God. Now that he did not have direct control, he also was finally able to leave the Arc on his own -- but only for Bhunivelze's search. Hope wanted to find Lightning, but the Bhunivelze's wish was to revive the savior prematurely and force her into a sense of trust.

Finally, he was able to find her within the depths of Valhalla, somewhere in the chaos he saw a single, blinding light. The light was the only source and he pulled out his boomerang and emotionlessly walked in the direction of the light until the brightness had enveloped him. Hope rose his head back, tilted it back all the way until he saw Lightning's face and Hope nearly lost control of his emotions but the means of possession. Hope had not seen Lightning in so long that his heart fluttered in his chest and his first reaction was to slightly curve his lips into a smile.

"I found you. It is finally time, awake savior." Hope moved his left hand, pressed it down against the edge of her leg and pushed inwards. A brilliant light set from his hand and forced the crystal to break there, a smaller amount of force was applied against to create more fractures until he pulled his hand away. Hope awaited the uncrystallization to process, his face a vacant expression and arms by his side with both eyes attuned to the location with the fractures.

Being trapped in her crystal sleep, the rose haired female just sat still in the throne of Etro. She was sitting on the throne, with her right leg crossed over her left. The sword that was given to her by the goddess, Etro, she was holding. She had the handle in her right hand, while the end of the sword was resting on her left hand. This was how she was in her crystal stasis. Before she was fighting a dark warrior named Caius Ballad in Valhalla, though she had already admitted defeat. She had known about Serah's death; her younger sister that died. She died having the same curse that Yeul had; the curse of being a seeress. She was then gone into her crystal sleep for centuries. Five hundred years to be exact. Staying in crystal form, she just wasn't quite sure when she was going to get out of her crystal stasis. It was also a very long time since she's seen Hope and the others as well, knowing that she was dragged down to Valhalla after saving Cocoon from Orphan. That was when she was believed to be 'dead' or 'missing'; whichever comes first.

Remaining in the depths of Valhalla, she had known about Serah's death, in which she had blamed herself for. Not knowing that Hope was there, she continued to remain silent and in her crystal stasis, before she had heard the voice telling her that it was time to awake. As the crystal started to disappear, she then started to gaze her aqua eyes at the silver haired male, Hope Estheim. The crystal was breaking and dissipating at the moment, as she looked at him with an emotionless expression on her face at the moment. "Hope.." She said his name, It was true that the Rose haired female hasn't seen him in a very long time. At least not since after the battle of Orphan and against Sanctum in order to save Cocoon.

As she then started to stand up, she had heard the words 'savior,' though this made the Rose haired female confused. A savior? Who would want to make someone like Lightning a savior? "I don't understand, Hope. How am I a savior?" She asked the silver haired male, as she continued to focus her gaze on the male for the time being. She was now out of her crystal stasis, and now she had another task. She just needed to know exactly what it was. She didn't show any signs of emotions at all. At least not since Serah's death.

As the rose haired female had woken up from her crystal stasis after being turned to crystal for five centuries, she glanced her Aqua eyes around the area for a brief moment, as she then started to stand up from the throne of Etro. She then glanced her eyes towards the silver haired male, Hope Estheim. "Hope.. Is that you..?" She asked him, her tone of voice seeming emotionless at the moment. She then started to listen to the male explain to her that Bhunivelze had asked him to find her and tell her that she had to be the harbinger of souls. A savior. The female wasn't really expecting those kinds of words from Hope at all. She couldn't believe that it was him. The last time she had saw Hope was when he was fourteen and it was after the battle against Orphan. It was when they were all branded as pulse L'Cie.

Not showing any emotion not only in her tone of voice, but on her facial expression as well, Lightning had watched Hope take a few steps back, as she started to walk a couple of steps away from the throne of Etro. She heard him tell her that he knew that he could find her. This had caused the woman to wonder how Hope had found her in the vicinity of Valhalla. Heaving a quiet but heavy sigh, she continued to gaze her Aqua eyes at the silver haired male, knowing that she had a lot of questions to ask Hope. "You believe that I can save the souls of this world that are left?" She asked him. "Hope.." She said his name, then looked down at the ground for a brief moment, keeping her facial expression emotionless for the time being.

"Hope, how did you find me here? How did you get to Valhalla to find me? This place here is nothing but chaos.." Lightning commented, as another heavy sigh started to escape the rose haired female's lips. As she listened to him explain that Bhunivelze had found him after falling in the sea of Chaos, she simply nodded to him. "Bhunivelze.. I'm not sure if should trust him or not.." She responded to Hope, as she then listened to him tell her that all of the Fal'Cie are dead except for one that's barely keeping some of humanity in Nova Chrysalia alive. She had wondered if there were any L'Cie left in Nova Chrysalia.

As she then heard him tell her that he was happy to see her again, she just couldn't smile at all. It was as if Serah's death had left a huge hole in Lightning's heart. She felt as if it was her fault that her younger sister had died. Heaving a heavy sigh, she nodded to Hope, as she saw the smile on his face. She even saw him placing a hand on his heart, though she didn't quite know how to react to the silver haired male's gesture. "Hope.. It's good to see you too.. Tell me though.. Why should I trust Bhunivelze?" She asked him.
