-Abyssal Rose:A Beautiful Mistake-
The sound of blood spilling was echoing through the icy darkness as snow continued to fall peacefully through the night. A splash of blood covered Riku's face as he slowly opened his eyes. He saw Khani's shocked expression facing a figure that had covered Riku's body. With dark-red beads of blood dripping on the snow, staining it with a deep red hue, a mere echo came from his voice. " ...X-xion.... " Riku's reaction was exactly like those of Khani's. Xion had thrown her own body in between the two to prevent any harm from befalling on her friend. Of all people, she wanted to protect Riku. Xion's vision became frigged and after a few short seconds, she collapsed without saying a word.

Even the falling snow degraded from the reiatsu's presence. The two turned to see who or what terror hide behind them. A tall man with hair the color of the moon with green eyes, dressed with mid-night stood behind them. There was nothing that was able to comprehend the fear they both felt. The silence was shattered by Khani's overwhelmed voice, as the words, were nothing more than the wind's howl. " ......Father.... "
