[isa and Leon fight, Leon is striking as hard as possible]
Isa: Leon! W-what's gotten into you?
Leon: Shut up!
[Leon strikes Isa's weapon]
Isa: Ah! Stop!
[isa swings at Leon]
Leon: Hahahaha! You're finished!
[Leon jumps up and tries to bring the sword down on top of Isa, but Isa strikes him before he strikes Isa, knocking him back and defeating him]
[Crowd is whispering]
Crowd: [You hear certain words in the crowd] What....demon....is he okay....killing....who won?
[Leon starts to move a bit and the crowd goes silent]
Lea: DON'T GET TOO CLOSE, ISA!
[isa approaches Leon]
Isa: It's okay Lea...
[isa continues to approach]
[Leon's body raises up in the air and drops back down into a standing position]
Isa: Are you...okay?
[Leon's eyes slowly open, they are back to their original color but black smoke still covers his eyes]
[The smoke disappears and Leon passes out, falling to the ground]
Isa & Lea: LEON!
[Lea jumps up onto the stage and runs over to Leon and Isa]
Tournament Proctor: Uh, um...we're...uh...having some technical difficulties here, folks!
Lea: Leon, you all right pal?
[Leon's eyes open slightly]
Lea: I dunno. You started freaking out on Isa, then you passed out.
Isa: The darkness.
[Leon and Lea look at Isa]
Isa: I dunno what exactly happened...but whatever it was, it was dark.
Tournament Proctor: Hey, kid...you okay?
Tournament Proctor: All right. The winner of the match and the tournament, is ISA!
[The proctor walks over with a trophy that has three colored crystals on it]
Tournament Proctor: Congratulations, Isa. You fought well.
[The proctor hands him the trophy]
[isa takes it]
Isa: Thank you.
Lea: Woa-ho! That's pretty neat!
[isa pulls it away]
Isa: It's also mine.
[Lea motions Isa to calm down]
Lea: All right, all right...I was just looking.
[Lea turns away]
Lea: I don't want your trophy, anyway!
[Lea turns around and a red crystal is thrown at him]
Lea: What's this?
Isa: It's for you. You deserve it.
[isa breaks off the blue one and puts it in his pocket]
[isa breaks off the green one]
Isa: Here, Leon. This one's for yo-
[Leon is nowhere to be found]
[Lea and Isa look around]
Isa: Guess he's gone. What am I gonna do with this one?
[Lea snatches it out of Isa's hand]
Isa: What are you doing?
Lea: Let's give it to Ventus!
Isa: I suppose that's not a horrible idea.
Lea: C'mon! Let's take it to him.
[The camera takes and aerial view and pulls away from Lea and Isa walking towards Ventus's direction]
[The scene transitions to a dark, wet, dripping cave]
[The camera lowers on a boy with his face in his knees, sobbing]
[You hear heavy foot steps]
[The boy looks up and it is revealed that it is Leon]
Leon: H-hello? Who's there?
[Footsteps grow louder and closer]
???: Hello Leon.
[Camera is now outside a sewer]
[scene transitions to Lea and Isa walking through Radiant Garden]
Lea: Man, I can't find him anywhere! What if he was just a figment of my imagination?
Isa: I doubt that's the case, I saw him too.
[suddenly a flying device carrying someone in armor shoots into the sky and disappears]
[Lea looks at Isa]
Lea: You don't think...?
Isa: I believe it was.
[Lea looks at the crystal]
Lea: (Okay, Ven. I'll hold onto this for ya'.)
[Camera zooms in on the crystal and fades out]
[Lea is laying on a roof at night, with Isa sitting]
Lea: Where do you think he went?
[isa looks to the sky]
Isa: Somewhere far from here.
Lea: Another world?
Isa: If there are any...I'd assume so.
[Lea pulls the crystal out and holds it toward the moon and it sparkles]
Lea: The moon.
Isa: It's pretty.
[Cups it into hand]
Lea: Let's find him.
[isa looks at him]
[Lea sits up]
Lea: Yeah! Let's get out of here. We'll go find Ven!
[isa looks down]
[isa shakes his head]
Isa: He didn't belong here. And you don't belong out there. But I gotta ask...what's your fascination with this guy anyway?
[Lea looks down]
Lea: I don't know. He was a cool guy, and...I felt a connection with him.
Isa: A connection?
Lea: Yeah! Like...he and I had met before. Like I had always known him.
Isa: Well, I know that's not the case. I've been your friend since birth. We've always been together. I'd remember Ventus if you had met him before.
Lea: Still. There's something about him. And I gotta find out what it is.
[isa stands up]
Isa: Well, you can play detective tomorrow. It's late, let's turn in.
[Lea stands up as well]
[isa climbs down the roof ladder]
[Lea takes one last look at the crystal and stuffs it in his pocket]
Lea: Ventus...I promise I'll get this to you.
[Lea climbs down the ladder]
[The camera pulls away from the ladder and directs towards the moon, then fades out]
[The next day, Lea and Isa are standing outside their apartment]
[Lea stretches and yawns]
Lea: Hm...it seems like I had something to do today.
[Lea and Isa think]
Lea: Oh! I gotta go to work!
Isa: Better hurry up or you'll be late.
[Lea runs as fast as possible to a little weapons shack]
[Lea runs up, winded and bent over]
Lea: H-hey...Bellin. Sorry I'm late. I kinda forgot I had work today.
Bellin: Not like I'm very surprised! You're always late.
Lea: Hey! At least I show up, period.
Bellin: You need to start showing up ON TIME! Or else-
Lea: You'll be fired. Yeah, yeah I know. We go through this all time.
Bellin: Just go to the storage room and take inventory.
[Walks to back room, casually waving Bellin off]
[Lea walks into a room with shelves filled with boxes]
Lea: Let's see. Potions, Hi-Potions, Elixers...uh...wait.
[Lea loses count and starts over]
Lea: Potions, Hi-Potions, Elixe-
[Throws hands up]
Lea: This is hopeless! Wait, maybe if I wrote it down.
[Reaches in pocket and pulls out a sheet of paper]
[Lea looks at the paper oddly, then looks up]
Lea: Wait a minute...
[Lea reaches back in his pocket]
Lea: What? Where's the crystal?
[Lea pulls both of his pockets inside out]
Lea: Maybe it fell out of my pocket. I bet Isa picked it up.
[Lea looks back at the paper]
Lea: Dang. No pencil.
[Lea walks out of the room, looking at the paper]
Lea: Hey Bellin, I need a pencil. You got one?
[There is no reply]
[still no reply]
[Lea looks around]
[bellin yells from outside]
Bellin: NO! GET AWAY!
[Lea throws the paper down and runs out]
[bellin is on the ground being attacked by Unversed]
Bellin: Lea! Help me!
[Lea draws weapons]
Lea: Get off of him!
[Lea goes into battle and destroys all but one of the Unversed]
Lea: Ha! No match for me!
[isa's voice comes from a distance]
Isa: Lea! Look out!
[Lea looks around]
[Lea is attacked by a creature, different from an Unversed]
[Lea is struck down and the creature tries to attack again]
[isa jumps in and destroys it]
[Lea doesn't move]
[isa administers a Hi-Potion to Lea, and he wakes up]
Isa: You all right?
[isa pulls Lea to his feet]
Lea: Am now.
[Lea looks at Bellin]
Lea: Bellin. You okay?
[bellin limps back into his store holding his back and whimpering]
Lea: Guess that means I'm off work.
[A voice comes from behind the two]
Merlin: That was very shotty work, young man.
[Lea and Isa turn to the elderly man in the blue robes and tall pointy hat]
Lea: Who are you?
Merlin: Why, I'm Merlin.
Merlin: Who!? How dare you-
Isa: Merlin is a wizard.
Merlin: A fine one, AT THAT.
Lea: He looks like some old geezer to me.
[Lea turns around and walks away, very unimpressed]
[The camera sits in front of Lea's face as he walks, with a blurry Merlin in the background waving his wand]
[The camera goes back to Merlin and Isa]
Merlin: I'll show YOU an old geezer! Fire!
[A fireball flies past Lea's face. Lea stops and his eyes grow wide]
[Lea slowly turns around]
Merlin: Not so old NOW. Am I?
[Lea draws his weapons]
Lea: Why you!
Lea: Bring it on, old man!
[Lea jumps up to strike but his attack is intercepted by Isa's weapon]
[isa lowers his weapon]
Isa: I'm sorry about my friend. He gets pretty hot-headed.
Lea: Do NOT!
[Lea folds his arms and pouts]
Merlin: Haha! It's quite all right.
[Merlin leans down to Isa's ear level]
Merlin: He fights like a girl anyway.
Lea: What was that, old man?
Isa: Down, Lea.
[Lea stands down]
Lea: He's asking for it...
[Merlin steps up, brushing his robe]
Merlin: Lea, you need some training. And I'll be the one to do it.
Lea: Ha! Why would I train under you?
Merlin: You probably want these back, no?
[Holds up Lea's weapons]
[Lea looks all around himself]
Lea: What the- How did you-?
Merlin: I AM a wizard, after all.
[Merlin tosses back his weapons]
Lea: Still why would I wanna train under you?
Merlin: If you do...you get THESE!
[Merlin uses magic to conjure up two rounded, red and white weapons with white spikes on them]
Merlin: These chakrams are special.
Merlin: They're FIRE chakrams.
Isa: Great...so you wanna turn Lea into a pyromaniac?
Isa: Calm down, I'm only joking.
Merlin: So, do you want them?
Lea: Of course!
[The weapons in Lea's hands become engulfed in light and are replaced with the chakrams]
Lea: So, what are YOU gonna help me with? They're easy enough to swing around. I don't think I need your help.
[Merlin tightens grip on wand]
Merlin: I can teach you how to control fire and use it to your advantage.
Lea: All right!
Merlin: Come this way.
[Merlin beckons them into his house]
Lea: How do you expect me to train in here? It's too small.
Merlin: We won't be training in here! Observe.
[Merlin flicks his wand and the three of them are transported to another room. A bigger room that is empty]
Merlin: Now THIS is a wonderful place to train!
Lea: Yeah it is.
[Lea jumps out in the middle of the room and begins flailing himself around with the weapons]
[Lea falls over]
Merlin: He's no very graceful.
Merlin: Up with you!
[Lea jumps up]
Merlin: Are you ready?
Lea: Yeah! Give me all you got! No holding back!
Merlin: Very well then.
[Merlin draws his want and summons 10 Unversed]
[Lea gets in battle position and waits for one of them to attack]
Lea: Why aren't they moving?
Merlin: They're under my control. They won't move unless I tell them to.
Isa: You can control the Unversed? How?
Merlin: That's for an old wizard to know, my boy.
[Merlin points at one of them]
Merlin: Now Lea, I want you to take aim at that one and say the word
