Caedus did as he was told without hesitation. He walked down the path. After about a mile, just as Vent had said, he came to a split. He walked the left path. After a good, long time of walking, he reached the so-called Obsid caves. He sat on what appeared to be a stone bench and was left alone with his thoughts. His face was emotionless for a few moments... Andthen... Somewhat realizing what he had done... Tears formed in his eyes.
He would never be accepted back. His father... What would Richand say? What would his mother say? What would King Oric do? The thoughts boiled in Caedus' head as his tears swelled and rolled down his cheeks. He knew there was only one way to destroy the fear and feeling he had thinking about the punishment he would be dealt for his crimes. The voice of his true self, cold and born of anger, uncoiled itself in his mind and whispered the answer in Caedus' head.
All things come to an end, Caedus... Its time... They must all die in order to bring peace...
Caedus cringed at the thought of having to kill his once thought closest friends. The boy was only 15 after all. He buried his face in his palms and let his tears roll down.
Valentine chuckled a moment and the gem glowed brightly.
"Very well done Nogeth... I did not expect it to be so easy... Had this othe fool not have barged in, we may have had a problem with turning him.... But now... Excellent job Nogeth... Its time to end the battle above.... Utilize your Divine Graviton... As per the orders I gave you earlier... See that it is done General.
