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.

Oblivious to Hope being used as a puppet by Bhunivelze, she looked at him for a brief moment, heaving a soft sigh. Her facial expression seemed emotionless at the moment due to the hole in her heart from Serah's death. She had listened to the silver haired male tell her that the chaos is going to make all the souls disappear and never to be reborn. She then heard him mention that Etro is dead and that everyone will be dead, including her, the deceased Serah, and Snow who is possibly going through a deep depression since Serah's death. She then listened to him mention that the God, Bhunivelze, is going to create a new world for humanity where the Chaos cannot destroy it.

"Hope.. How long will it be before Bhunivelze starts to create the world for humanity?" The rose haired female asked the other male, before hearing his comment about how the chaos had spread since the death of Caius Ballad, her former nemesis. Heaving a heavy sigh, Lightning just simply nodded to him. "A new world for humanity.." She said to him, though what she what she wasn't sure about was that she could go into the forbidden timeline. She didn't know about her savior powers either. She also didn't know that Etro will need to be revived. She glanced down at the ground with her aqua eyes, as she thought to herself. Hope seemed to have grown since I last saw him.. But if what he's saying is true.. Then.. I have no choice but to believe him. She thought to herself.

"I need to know more about Bhunivelze's plan to create a new world. Tell me, Hope. What is it that I have to do?" Lightning asked him, her eyes looking emotionless at the moment. She took one more step towards him, as a heavy sigh started to escape the rose haired female's lips. She needed answers, in order to accept what seemed to be her true fate. She wanted to see Serah again. To see her younger sister smile. Glancing her aqua eyes back at the silver haired male, another sigh started to escape her lips, as she waited for his answer.

Listening to the silver haired male tell her that they have one month, Lightning heaved a heavy sigh as her Aqua eyes focused her gaze on Hope at the moment. "Hope. Where are we supposed to go to do so?" She asked him, using an emotionless tone of voice. She then saw his gesture of him snapping his fingers as the rose haired female remained silent for the time being. She started to listen to the male explain that they must find a way to erase the chaos from the past to correct the timeline. This caused Lightning to be a bit confused at the moment. "Didn't Serah do this? Didn't Serah do that and it caused her to die?" She asked him, as she looked down at the ground for a brief moment. She wasn't quite sure how she can correct the timeline within a month. She then looked up at him when he mention that Bhunivelze had given him. The powers to go with her.

"So you have the powers to go through the timeline and correct it?" She asked him, as she heaved another sigh. "Yes.. It has been a long time since we've traveled. Many centuries ago, if I remember right." She responded to him, before noticing him opening his arms. She didn't know what to say to Hope's gesture at the moment. She wasn't quite sure how Hope, when he was younger, had felt about her. She had remembered giving him her knife during that time that Hope had his grudge against Snow for his motheer's death. She then remembered him giving her the knife back telling her that he didn't need it anymore. She had remembered it all.

"Hope.." Lightning said his name, before she took another step towards the silver haired male. "Hope.. Lead the way.. Take me to where you intended to take me. If this is to save Serah, then so be it. I know that she is gone, and that her death is my fault." She said to him, still using the same emotionless tone in her voice. She then held her hand out to him, her aqua eyes still gazing at Hope.

Lightning simply nodded to Hope, heaving a soft sigh, as she then crossed her arms over her chest. She never knew that Hope had powers of his own, though she wasn't quite sure what type of powers he could possess. She didn't really know that Hope was possessed by Bhunivelze, and that the God of Light was using Hope as a puppet. She also didn't know what Hope would be using those types of powers for. All she heard from Hope was that they're going to be removing the most concentrated forms of Chaos to keep it from flooding the world. She had known that chaos had flooded the world ever since Noel had stabbed Caius Ballad in Valhalla all these years ago. It had been 500 years since she had went into a crystal stasis, though she had just been woken up by Hope.

"The touch of a God?" Lightning asked him, as she continued to look into his eyes. She heaved another sigh, as she had taken a step forward. She had already told him about how she felt about Serah. "I know you won't let me downs, Hope. At least I hope you don't." She said to him, her facial expression remaining emotionless. If Hope allowed her to do so, Lightning would place her hand on his shoulder and looked into his Emerald eyes with her Aqua eyes for a brief moment. "Hope.. I trust you.. Let's do this. Let's remove the concentrated forms of chaos to keep it from flooding the world. I want to see Serah again. I never got to say goodbye to her when she passed. I feel that it is my fault. I feel that her death is my fault, so I need to make things right with Serah." She explained to Hope, before she then removed her hand off his shoulder.

It was then that Lightning had started to follow Hope into the floating chaos before watching him open a strange opening. She then started to enter the Historia Crux, glancing her Aqua eyes around the area for a brief moment. "This.. This must be the Historia crux. Is this what Serah and Noel had used to get to Valhalla? Is this how Noel and Serah had started to attempt to save the future?" She asked Hope, now being curious on the Historia Crux. She had never knew about this due to being in Valhalla fighting Caius Ballad in Valhalla. As she heard Hope's question once more, she glanced his eyes towards him, whilst floating in the space of time. "I believe it started around 500 AF." She said to him. She had known that when Serah died, Hope and Noel were in 500 AF and that was when the chaos was spreading.
