“A creature of the Dark? Interesting…” Was it perhaps, a sentient Heartless? Curiosity piqued, he quickly climbed out of bed and lit a candle. Light aloft, he walked around his bed when he heard a loud THUD!
Walking closer to the source of the sound, he can see a human-like shape lying face down on the floor. This person had pink hair. Strange, never seen him around before. He took tentative steps towards the person. Bending down, he gently prodded the body with his finger. “Who are you?” he repeated, hoping for an answer.
The light was stark, and the ringing verbose. “Hoo ahr yoo?” it asked. What it asked, he couldn’t tell. It would seem the effects of the labyrinth not only continued but progressed outside the maze. The noise echoed in his head. Hoo ahr yoo? HOO ahr YOO~? hoo AHR YOO?
He began to cough, and suddenly he knew where he was.
“Red…?” How long had it been? “Redi?” But then he saw the face of a man and remembered Red would not be here. “Who are you?” As quick as it came, the fog was lifting. He knew the face from somewhere, but fighting now - in the state he was in - would have been a death sentence. Even in the fog, he knew that much.
