Ventus kept an eye out for any other Heartless in the area, but was able to breath a sigh of relief, knowing that there wouldnt be any more fighting for now. He knew that the poor kid must be scared out of his wits, but knowing Daring, she would have the kid in a good spot right about now. Venturing into the warehouse a bit more, he then spotted Daring coming up to him, as she landed by his side. ”That’s good. I didnt want to involve the kid in this mess we’re in.” Ventus says, a bit relieved to know that Destina was well hidden, so they could look around in the basement without any worry…but they had to hurry to find out what was causing all of this. ”Your right though…it would be bad if something happened to him while we’re away. Lets head down to the basement.” Ventus says, as he points over to where he saw a corridor nearby.
Taking Daring along with him, they go down a small flight of stairs and into a rather large looking room. It was a small depot, with a few crates here and there, and a strange looking door ahead of them. ”Huh…that’s odd…looks like some sort of creatures embedded in the concrete.” Ventus says, as they oddly resemebled Heartless….and thats when it happened.
The door suddenly started to move…or at least the two creatures on it, as their arms quickly strike Ventus, causing him to fly across the room, and crash into the boxes. ”Ahhhhh! …..ugh.” With that blow, he was knocked unconscious, leaving Daring to face the Door Guardian in front of her.
The room that they were now in, which was a small depot, carried the same eerie presence that the last once. They could almost feel the mystery and suspense in the air. She could see the crates that populated the room. They probably contained the same machine parts as the last one. Her eyes were scanning around the room and she reached up with her right hand to adjust her hat ever so slightly. Then they could see the strange door in front of them. Her eyebrow would quirk up, and she was genuinely curious at the sight that was in front of her. The fact that there was what appeared to be creatures embedded into the concrete itself didn’t exactly help her feel any better. It was not a coincidence. Something was up. “Alright, I’m definitely not liking what I’m seeing here. Keep on your guard Ventus. With how those heartless work I wouldn’t be surprised if something were to happen.” And to Daring’s dismay, something did happen.
The creatures that were embedded in the wall came to life, causing Ventus to crash into a bunch of boxes, almost immediately taken out of consciousness. Upon seeing that Daring swallowed a lump in her throat. There was absolutely no way that she could take those things on. This wasn’t good, this wasn’t good at all. Plans were flowing through her mind of what to do. The first one was obvious. Get Ventus and get out of there, and get out of the warehouse period. She would probably hold ventus on her back and hold Destina in her arms. Or probably force the kid to at least attempt to catch up with how fast they were going to be going. The creatures would strike again, their arms going straight for Daring. Unfortunately for her she was struck as well, getting forced back towards the stairs. “Ungh…” It was a strong hit, and she could definitely feel it’s effects reverberating throughout her body. She started to make her way towards Ventus though, determined not to be taken down by these creatures.
She grunted in pain as she forced herself to bend down and pick up Ventus. Her back was sore and forcing herself to do all of this was only making the pain even more apparent. “Don’t worry, we’re going to make it out of here. Once we do then we’re getting out of this warehouse. For now anyways. Why am I talking to a person that’s unconscious?” She was making herself look rather silly in that moment. It looked like she was practically talking to herself. Now she just needed to make her way out of the place. Once Ventus was securely placed in her arms she started to high tail it towards the stairs, managing to dodge another strike from the door guardian. She grunted in pain again but managed to force herself up the steps, placing Ventus on the ground for a moment to gather herself. “You are very heavy you know that?
The Door Guardian was lodged in the concrete wall, but the arms extended as far to the stair case that Daring needed to head off to. Ventus was out for the time being, and it seemed that there was no other way for Daring to handle the Heartless…so a retreat was in order. However, the Door Guardian wasnt about to let that happen, as it quickly lundged a massive hand over to a few nearby crates, knocking them over. The crates piled up at the top of the stairs, making it impossible for Daring to get around them. It seemed that she was trapped for the moment…
That was until something happened…
In a flash of light, Ventus’ Keyblade quickly appeared in his hand, and he was unconsciousally holding it out to Daring to take hold. ‘Use…it…‘ Ventus’ voice echoed in her head, as he was letting her use the Keyblade to fight back. ‘Dont…worry about me. Ill be up…in a bit. Just…take that thing down…for me will ya?’
