The smell of flowers and the sound of moving water brought Lexxy back from unconsciousness . Dazed, she lifted herself up off the ground and stretched her aching muscles. She looked around and noticed she was in an entirely different place than her home world. "What happened?" she muttered to herself as she tried to remember the moments before awakening. Then it all came rushing back to her; the Heartless had finally invaded her world and destroyed it. So, why was she here? And how did she make it out alive? She lifted her hand and summoned her Keyblade. It was a Japanese theme with cherry blossom shaped guards, a katana made up the handle and pole, and the key teeth were represented by a folding fan marked with the Japanese flag. The Maneki Neko keychain hung loosely from its position on the bottom of the blade. Could the Keyblade have something to do with her arrival here? Dismissing her weapon, Lexxy thought it best to learn about her surroundings. Perhaps she may find one of her friends, she hoped they had all made it out okay.
Finally acknowledging the area, she noticed she was standing in the middle of a big courtyard. There were four entrance points, one at each of the cardinal points of a compass. To the North stood a large, daunting castle, the gate in front stood closed and locked. To the East was the town area and West led to the Castle Gardens, and to the South was a dark tunnel that led to an unknown destination. "I wonder where I should go first," she pondered her choices and opted for the entry to the East.
As she entered the alcove of buildings she made note of how quiet the town was. It appeared that most of the Item and Accessory Shops were closed, and there was no one standing around in the plaza. As she went deeper into town, the stores were replaced by homes. One such house stood out from the rest, a sign outside the door read: Merlin the Wizard. 'I wonder if he has seen any of the guys,' she thought as she approached the door. She knocked twice and waited for an answer, it seemed no one was home. Lexxy gave a defeated sigh and stepped away from the building to continue through the town.
Passing under an archway, Lexxy emerged at the top of a set of stairs that led to the base of a giant, cascading fountain. She looked to the wall on her right and read a plaque stating that this was the Fountain Court. The melody of waterfalls filled her ears as she descended the stairs. The stairs stopped at a multicolored cobblestone path that turned into a small bridge. She stepped off the path and into the shallow pool of crystal water. Glad that her black pants were tucked into knee-high combat boots, she kicked the water, causing the splash skip across the surface. She walked through the water with ease, and as she stepped up to one of the waterfalls, the air the water pushed made her long, black coat billow behind her. The water was so clear she could see her reflection in it and using it as a vanity mirror, she examined and adjusted her outfit. The jacket she wore had unique sleeves that showed the mock striped shirt underneath. The contrast looked odd on water. The purple suspenders that dangled from the pants moved slightly in the breeze, and she adjusted her bikini style top that was slightly hidden by a gray zipper-corset type garment. Satisfied with how she looked, she returned to the center of the bridge to get a better look of the fountain in its entirety. Lexxy followed the trail of working geysers up to the highest platforms of the fountain, until she noticed a figure standing on the left side of the structure. He appeared to be watching the moving water, just as she had been doing, but he seemed so absorbed in what he was looking at that he hadn't noticed her presence. The longer she stared, the more familiar the clothes began to look, then his build, hair, and facial features. It finally clicked, "Derek!" she tried to yell over the roar of the water, but it seemed he hadn't heard her.
