"Valor...." Rise whispered to herself. Lillia, even more confused, looked up at Rise, "Who's Valor, Rise?". Rise was in a daze, she looked down at Lillia and said nothing.
She looked up at the creature, "You can't fool me, you aren't Valor....you can't be, you just can't!" She swiped her hand threw the air and a giant blade hurled it's way toward the being. Memories flung it's way into Rise's mind, giving her the need to land.
What an awful trick, an awful, awful trick.... Rise thought to herself, It HAS to be trick....it can't be Valor, he was destroyed...and it was all my fault. I saw it happen, right before me. I was too weak, I couldn't save him, but oh how I tried, I tried..... Rise couldn't look up, she couldn't face the being who knew so much about her past. She couldn't let Lillia die too, she had to protect her to the very end, she couldn't let her down, that's why she stayed standing.
She stood in front of Lillia, her mind spinning with images from the past, things she'd repressed for so long. She didn't know how the being knew about Valor, or if this was some kind of trick, in fact, she didn't know why this was happening in the first place. But whoever this Edagener guy was, she knew she hated him.
Lillia quivered as she Rise fall to the ground. She had so many questions, yet she hesitated to ask and simply watched in confusion. Rise was her only protection from this being, she wanted to call out to her, to pull her out of what ever was attacking her mindset. Taking a step forward she neared Rise, then stopped and remembered she needed to keep her distance, in case the being attempted to attack her as well.
(I hope I got the gist of what you meant by Valor, I wasn't sure what my cue was for that ^-^)
