Locke examined Terra with awe. Surely this could not be the same woman? Her body was bare, every inch of her skin resonating with a pale pink light, and her hair spread around her in wild pink spikes that were twice as long as Locke remembered her hair being.

“She…is she alive?” Celes asked in a hushed voice.

As if in response, Terra’s mouth opened to reveal sharp canine teeth, and she groaned, low and loud.

“Terra?” Locke tried. He hesitantly put his hand on her shoulder. “Terra? Are you okay?”

The voice that replied was not Terra’s. “She’s scared, you know.”

Just outside the second tower there was a woman laying face down in the mud, crying. Locke saw the way Sabin was looking at her and firmly said, “Don’t.”

Sabin didn’t move any closer, but he couldn’t resist calling out, “Ma’am? Are you okay?”

The woman was quick – she was on her feet and hurling a knife at Sabin’s face in the blink of an eye – but Celes was faster. The knife went skittering off into an alley and Celes’ sword was at the woman’s throat before the men had even reacted.Read More »

After very thoroughly losing his cool, Locke explained exactly why he had strong reservations about going to the town of ZoZo.

As was his custom, Locke was the last one to wake the next morning. For a moment he lay under the covers, listening to the low, constant rumble of the motorized fortress passing through the earth. He’d expected the noise to keep him up all night, but it had actually been quite soothing. He’d had a decent night’s sleep for the first time in a long time and was rather loathe to end it.
