@ Everyone: Happy first of October people!!! To celebrate, here's mah updatieee for chappieeee six. XD
Anyway, LISTEN UP. This is important!! I know some of you REALLY want a moment for yourselves, right? Well, for your character... but you know what I mean. Soo... I talked to Kevin two days ago about how we'll make a little 'story' for his character. My idea is to make AUA totally long and give everyone a chance of their own to have a little segment for themselves (other characters will still appear, but not as much as the specific one). That's why I included a 'History' section in the beginning. I know not a lot of you filled that out, but I know all of you want 3-4 chapters where your character shows up a lot, huh? Well, if you do... you better think of something. I already have an idea for the following characters:
Shade Chaos (possibly) Cat Kellen Kevin Madisen
Yeah, that's all. XD I want to make this a big chance for you. I know it's only 3 or 4 chapters, but I'll try and make the chapter long, long, LONG... as long as I possibly can. @.@ I want this to be the befferestest story I've ever done! Well, I think it already kinda is. But I'll try harder!!!! Sooo... that's all I got important to say. Sheeyah, you'll catch me rambling a lot. Like me, I always talk a lot. Here's chapter six... :O
Oh yeah, by the way... *hands the people who guessed Axel..a cookie!* >___> *coughaxelishotcough*

Chapter 6: Nothing's Call
(A/N: Btw, “Nothing’s Call” is a true area in Kingdom Hearts 2. Muhahahahaha. If you tell me which world that area is in, I’ll give you another cookie.)
“In black cloaks?”
“Are you serious?”
“Yes!” Jake sighed exasperatedly for what seemed like the millionth time. “I snuck out of my dorm early in the morning. I went flying around then this girl started shooting at me like I was a madman!”
“With a what? Staff?”
“Not quite.” He paused, picturing from all the things he remembers seeing last night. “It was LIKE a staff, but more of some… blade thing… or something.”
“Out to get somebody? You?”
Jake heard the sarcasms that arose from some his friends. “Why don’t you guys believe me?”
Shade spoke first then shrugged. “Well, for one thing, we’ve never ever seen nor have we ever heard of a couple of girls in black cloaks.”
“Yeah, and second, why would there be anything bad going on just two days after you moved in?” Cat had alleged second.
Jake rolled his eyes. “I… I don’t know! Hasn’t anything bad or mysterious ever appeared around this school or… or something?”
“It’s kind of impossible since the Isle of Draco is totally safe from any magical threats now.”
“Or, so we’ve heard.”
“Oh.” Jake paused. “But still! You got to believe me!!”
“Hey, if you ask me… this sounds pretty interesting.” Kay mumbled. “I wanna hear more!!”
“Erh… t… that was… pretty much it. I only know that one of them is named Roxy… but the other one seemed pretty quiet and… and sweet. Like she knew that there was no right to attack me.” Jake stopped. “I wish Roxy was like her.” His voice turned into a mumble.
“Seriously…” More cynicism arose.
“Aww come on! What does it take for me to get you guys to believe me?”
“Uhh, you don’t really LOOK tired, first of all.”
Jake gave a discomfited gaze. “Are you serious?”
“Riiight. Any OTHER objections?”
Most shook their head to signal a ‘no’. Some, though, gestured a ‘yes’… only it was either Jake didn’t really seem to notice or care all that much.
“Jake, I’d love to believe you but I was also up late in the same time as you.” Shade said. “You know, thinking about Florence and whatnot… I saw you outside too. I was near the entrance, watching as the time of twilight went by. Just something I ought to do, you know?” He paused. “Anyway. I saw you were either flying in an awkward manner or you were dodging something and I just couldn’t see it. In fact, I didn’t remember seeing any flash of green coming out from the sky.”
“Yeah, I was with Shade and Al late at night too. I woke up because Al did… and we noticed him staring at the sky. So we were all talking but we stopped when we all saw you.” Ash spoke up, taking a pause. “But our minds were confused when we noticed that you were talking to yourself—or the wall—and you were evading from nothing.” She took another short moment of silence. “Either you were crazy or we just couldn’t see who you were having a conversation with.”
Jake was speechless, his voice sounding as if he were totally astounded. “Are… are you kidding me?”
(A/N: This type of event will appear some time again in later chapters. So that part is a really important momentum thinger. And keep in mind that I stole this from KH2 too, sort of.)
“No.” Shade and Ash said simultaneously, shaking their heads. Even Al shook a no, but he didn’t say a word; he was still the same quiet person.
“How can you NOT see two girls in black cloaks?” Jake was talking like he was totally out of his mind now. “And especially a green flash coming from the sky and about to shoot me!”
“Hey, it was either too dark or you were hallucinating.” Al said for once. It wasn’t everyday you heard him talk, but now didn’t really seem the time to call that out.
“Yeah, maybe I kind of am crazy.” Jake started to think and give in a little. “Just might be Rose.”
A lot of them nodded. “No kidding.”
Jake thought he saw something on the corner of his eye. He thought that nobody probably saw that so he decided to make up an excuse. “I think I’ll walk around for a while.” He paused, taking a quick glance around. “Be right back.”
He ran over to the side where nobody could see him. Once again, he took sudden glances around his area.
He looked around again.
Suddenly, he thought he heard something… an ominous voice softly calling out.
The words were too perplexing to be able to perceive. Was it trying to tell him something?
You can hear the voices calling out… but you may never comprehend the unfathomable words that you appear to have attended to.
Was it something like that? The words were too soft and indistinct to put together… it was if a mumble was surrounding him portentously.
“Who’s there?” Jake called out to no one in particular, trying to see if he could find someone who will appear. “I said who’s there?!”
There was still no answer… and as he glanced around in a swift manner, he noticed that a strange fog had blanketed all of him. Jake gasped and found himself in a world of nothingness.
There was nothing he could see other than shades of black, pale blue, and clear white. He heard the same voice calling out to him.
No matter how hard you try, you may never understand…
“What are you trying to tell me?” He kept looking around in such dread and bewilderment.
Obscurity and darkness will erode one day… just on a point in time you will not at all expect.
“Okay, now you’re just being crazy!”
Upon you lies a door to another world. You may never come back… you might not ever see anybody ever again. But this all a risk you have to take.
“Huh? What door?!”
After that was being said, Jake saw that an entrance appeared in front of him. It wasn’t what he expected, though… it was a shroud of darkness that emit in front of him.
A mystery lies ahead of you. You may overcome great ordeals… but somewhere ahead of that time, you might not ever be able to see the world again.
“Psh, you don’t scare me! Just tell me who you are!!”
Destiny lies on your shoulders… and you may find things puzzling at first.
“Yeah, but what about now?!”
It is your choice… Either you take a step through this world or you turn back and never get this opportunity again. What IS this opportunity? It is all on your fate.
“What is this, a joke?”
What is your final answer?
“Whoever… or… WHATEVER you are, I’m choosing the safest way; to NOT go in that door!”
Very well then… This was your last chance. But you must understand that you might regret your choice one day… what you expect to be the best way might not always be the most unsurpassed decision you chose.
“Whatever.” Jake crossed his arms, thinking this might all be a ridiculous scam.
The voice had worn away and all he saw was a cloud of complete darkness slowly dispersing through the gentle breeze.
When there was nothing left, Jake could see a flash of light shrouding everywhere he turned.
He opened his eyes and found that he was now in the same place where he was looking around before.
Jake looked around again, looking totally confused. “Last… chance?”
End Chapter Six
Sheeyah... sorry if it's STILL short but I tried to make this chapter really all mysteryyyy and whatnot. I'm not good at that stuff either... but hey, I tried... And plus, that music looping from "The World That Never Was" in my PS2 is making me think of ominous whatnots. Oooh, the Altar of Naught. *coughspoilercough* @.o
Anyway... chapter seven is already being typed up. Sheeyah, trying to make a lot of progress on stories today since I'm gonna be disappearing a whole lot starting this month. You know, moving stuff in my room and the houseyyy? My goal is to get AUA up to AT LEAST chapter nine or ten by the time we start disconnecting the computer from our apartment. If not, feel free to slap me 500 times.
Haaaah... better get started then. Later dudes. Btw... IZZAT JOO RIKU?! O__o *played KH2 this morning so w/e* XD
PS- Not every writer is perfect... so I appreciate constructive criticism. I don't mind if I get em a lot. I'm only a middle schooler at 13, so you better have something in mind that you want me to fix. Whether it's spelling, grammar, character interaction, suspense, I dunno! Think of something...
PPS- I'm also working on a Halloween-based ADJL fic, since it's October now. If you guys read my updates thread, you might've noticed that.
???????? - new An entity shrouded in mystery. His appearance was not seen by Jake... all he noticed was his voice. Could he be trying to tell him something?
Kewl. ME and Ash agreed for once! PARTAY!!!!! *BOOM* Nice, even though it was short, and your short chappys are like my regular chappys, it was still OMINOUS!!! Yay for the next chapter. I've got Toph prepared with that rocky had and the slaps of 10,000 ceturies. *grins* HAH!, okie, hurry and update now. *snore*

Yup... I know you guys have been asking me, sooo... here's chapter seven. I won't ramble just for the sake of your excitement. XD
An Unlikely Adventure By: ADJLFanatic
Chapter 7: Intuitions
Jake just stood there, very perplexed by what he just saw… His hands trembling with the shiver of much dread… despair… maybe even…
“Whoa…” Suddenly, he had heard a soft distant sound… growing louder as it went. It then grew with an almost strident resonance… Then it grew louder… and louder… and louder… until…
It turned out to be pretty anticlimactic as he quickly realized it was just two of his friends when he turned around. “Jeez, calm down. It’s just us,” Ash said, with Shade standing next to her.
“Yeah.” Shade said, looking at the almost oblivious, startled Jake. “What are YOU doing here?”
“Maybe I should ask you two the same thing.” Jake crossed his arms. They both just rolled their eyes with such skepticism. “Okay, I just… thought I saw something.” Jake noticed as Shade and Ash both simultaneously responded with exasperation. “I’m serious, you guys!” He paused with a stifled sigh. “I really thought I spotted something here. This spot!” Shade and Ash glanced at each other and just shook their heads, agreeing that what Jake said didn’t feel right.
“Are you feeling okay?” Shade tilted his head slightly as if his friend were a deranged, mentally ill lunatic. Jake just sighed and noticed as he just muted a ‘never mind.’ Then, for some reason—for just SOME reason—he thought he saw that same person standing over behind them.
“There!” He pointed at the direction south of them. Shade and Ash turned around quickly… but all they saw was nothing. “I swear, guys! It was just there!”
“Come on, is this a joke?” They both looked at him funny, but with some serious thoughts inside.
“No! I’m serious! I… I saw something over there!” Jake pointed behind them. They both glanced and STILL say completely nothing there. He just sighed. “I am. I wish I could just… SAY IT. But…” All of a sudden, a voice was heard from a distance. “Do you guys hear something?” Shade and Ash glanced at each other. Ash did the typical, “lunatic” thing by twirling her finger next to her ear. “I’m NOT crazy!” He said with a kind of sober tone. “I really think I heard something…” The same distant shout was heard again… only this time, everybody heard it. Shade and Ash turned around with a startled. Jake shook his head to signal an ‘I told you so’ look. They both rolled their eyes, all three of them running over to where they heard it.
It felt somewhat anticlimactic when they only saw Kevin standing in front of them. He turned to them and said, “Hey guys.”
“Kevin, did you hear something?” Jake asked him. He shook his head as confusion arose in his head. “Oh, but let us know if you do, okay?”
Kevin nodded. “Sure. I’ll keep a close watch… I guess.”
“Thanks dude!” Shade, Ash, and Jake then ran over to another direction to search for where the voice had come from… again.
“Jake, are you sure there’s really trouble around here?” Shade asked. “I don’t think there’s any bad signs around here…” He paused. “… yet.”
The three kept on searching until on they heard the same yelp again. “There!” He pointed to a specific direction then started running there. Shade and Ash took a glance at each other, shrugged, and followed behind. They ended up in the same spot where they saw Kevin. All of them just looked around for anything suspicious. Shade noticed that Kevin was a little more spaced and ‘out there’; he was looking around more. Though Kevin never was able to keep his mental thoughts in one spot. Ash noted that there was something odd with one of the trees that stood on their left. Jake observed… well, nothing. After all, he wasn’t always the cerebral. I don’t blame him, though. “Oh… guess it was nothing… again.”
“Still didn’t hear anything?” Ash asked Kevin this time, waiting until he realized that someone was talking to him.
“Nope.” He said. “Why do you ask?” They all shrugged.
“Just thought we might’ve heard something.” Shade said.
“Oh… well… I’ll let you guys know if I spot something.” Kevin said. “I’ll just be here.” They all nodded and, once again, kept on searching.
“Um, Dad… a-are you sure that this is gonna… work?” A soft voice was heard. It was from a teenage girl that was concealed with a black cloak with the hood placed on her head. She had gone inside a very resonant, quiet room that had no sound but clicking and sounds that were the same as a keyboard on a computer or from a technologic database. “I mean… if you look at it… this…”
“Silence daughter. It’ll surely be able to work.” A deep voice replied with an almost cold response.
“There is nothing more that needs to be said.”
She was about to open her mouth to speak, or backtalk, but didn’t bother to… it already ruined how she normally used to be… and she thought doing that would never solve anything anyway. “Alright… I guess so.”
As some very crazy-like and simultaneous beeping was heard, he had somehow managed to have whispered a “Success!” and run off to tell the others. The girl just sat there, yet to figure out what else would happen.
“Come on, Jake. This is hopeless!”
“You’re the one that’s hopeless! You’ve been saying that for about six billion times already!”
“That’s the point!”
“So what are you, a quitter?”
“I’m not a loser!”
“I said quitter.”
“You know what, I ought to just use my alchemy on you, huh?”
Shade shook his head, watching as the other two bickered immaturely. Looks like he took over and had the job of being the ‘responsible one’ now. He looked over and thought he saw a… flash of some sort. Either it was a huge chunk of ice or it was a very, very azure and almost white colored beam. “Guys! Just grow up!” He suddenly got a little fed up, but had calmed down a little. “Anyway…” He shook his head. “Look over there.” Jake and Ash walked over a tree that looked… white? But it’s not Christmas, isn’t it? Or is it?
“Why is this tree so… icy?” Ash asked no one in particular. “And so…” She ran her finger on a leaf. “Cold?”
“Maybe because anything icy feels cold?” Jake said sarcastically.
“You know what!” She turned to the cynical, seemingly obnoxious-at-the-moment Jake.
Before Shade could even do anything, he had turned and saw the two fighting… well, in human. He sighed exasperatedly as he watched them roll around, punch and kick each other, and probably even try to pin the other down. “GUYS! This is serious!”
When both of them heard Shade, they knew he wasn’t joking. So they both stopped and decided to be staid this time.
The girl sat nearby a glass-like casement that let the sun in; a radiant beam shone through the window. She sighed. She knew how much she hated being in the Huntsclan, but she also knew if she wasn’t, then it was probably off with her head or into the kraken she went.
“Hey, you okay?” A voice chimed in as a soft, momentary echo was heard through the spacey, but quiet and empty, room.
She looked up and saw who had walked in, waiting for him to sit down next to her before she would respond. “It’s nothing. Huntsdad is just getting to me again, I guess.”
“Yeah, kind of hard for someone with a good heart to be in such a… bad-hearted group, huh?”
“I guess so. But… why are you in the Huntsclan then, Tyler? You’re not mean like the other members.” She paused and sighed. “Well, like Roxy the day before.”
“Ohh, so it was you two who went through that boarding school, huh?” He didn’t answer the first question. She just nodded. “Oh… I heard it from someone; didn’t think it was true.”
“Yeah… I honestly don’t like going on missions like when Huntsdad and the Huntsman tell me too. Ever since Rose has been acting up, it’s always me doing things.” She stifled a sigh again. “And you know, I can’t believe that I probably won’t see him anymore.” She had shifted the topic a little.
“Your boyfriend?” He guessed. It was a lucky guess too…
“Yeah.” She nodded again. “Just because we’re both different people, it doesn’t mean we can’t be… together, right?” Tyler agreed with that response. “I remember he always said that.”
“So I see… who was your boyfriend again?” Tyler had managed to ask.
“Shade… His name was Shade.” She replied softly.
“Hmm, seems like it’s been a recent time since this tree got frozen.” Shade said, taking a mental note as he examined, circling around the tree. “More like probably two minutes ago since we got here.”
“How do you know these things?”
“I’m Freezy the Ice Dragon, after all… how do you think I know?”
“Yeah, he has a good point… and you can tell too. Since, you know, there’s no water dripping or any ice melting or anything.”
“Smarty.” Jake mumbled.
“What was that?”
The three looked more closely, suddenly both startled by that same familiar shout and that same ‘white’ light that came across the sky. Shade looked more closely. “Hey! That’s not a white beam! That’s ice!!” Ash just glanced strangely, but shrugged as they all ran over to the same spot. But this time, they saw something they didn’t expect to see. It was Kevin in dragon form with his powers going out of control.
“AH! Help me! Somebody!” He managed to have said before blowing a bunch of ice at Jake, accidentally of course. When he turned back to human, he shrugged sheepishly as he looked at the frozen Jake. “Ehhh, sorry?”
“It’s okay, I got it covered.” Shade said as the ice that was around Jake was now gone. Jake shivered a little but was not damp or soaking wet. He stopped and looked at Kevin unexpectedly, maintaining his composure.
“Dude, was that about?”
“I don’t know! This has never happened before.” Kevin responded with confusion.
“That’s strange. So, I guess the ‘mystery’ has been solved, huh?” Ash said.
“Guess so.” Shade shrugged. “But not really…”
“Has this been happening lately?” Jake asked.
“Well, it actually only happened at a late time yesterday.” Kevin replied. “It’s strange since I always manage to keep my powers in check.”
“Ironic… but… I think that was about the same time when I saw those two girls in black or something.”
“Weird. Do you think that maybe my powers are trying to tell me something?”
“Maybe… it could be.” Jake just shrugged. “Are you sure you really don’t remember this happening before?”
“Well, I think I remember it happening back then… but when I was probably a lot younger and less experienced with my powers.”
“Ah. Would you mind telling us what happened?”
“I don’t mind, actually… not one bit.” He replied first.
“Shade, huh?” Tyler asked.
“Yeah. I miss him.” She sighed softly.
“I can tell.”
“I just can’t believe that we probably won’t see each other again. I mean I haven’t even seen him in school lately. He’s always absent for some reason! And this has probably been going on for a month now. Nobody’s ever been telling me about him. Not even his friends know.”
“I never knew that you and him went to the same school together, Flo.”
“Guess I never mentioned it. But you know, I don’t even have a dream charm like Rose does to talk to Jake when they communicate with each other in their dreams.”
“Dream charms, huh? Always heard about those.” Tyler said. “In fact, I have one.” He held out his hand. Florence could see the dream charm dangling in his wrist.
“Lucky.” She mumbled. “I always want to ask Shade how he’s doing. But there’s no way to talk to him anymore.” She sighed again. “Sometimes, I even think about quitting the Huntsclan… just for him.”
“Wow, that’s a really good heart right there.” He said. “I’ve never heard any Huntsclan members ever tell me that. And whenever I do ask them, they just tell me how they are either glad to be in it or how they can’t really quit for their own sake.”
“I only joined the Huntsclan because when I was seven, my step-dad always told me how dragons are so mean and cold-hearted and how magical creatures don’t even deserve their lives. After all these years, he’s always trained me to be a good Huntslass and even fight side-by-side with Rose, the Huntsgirl. And you know, we’re really good friends.” Florence said. “But you know, ever since we found out about Jake and Shade being a dragons a long time ago, we regret even thinking it that way. Since you know, killing a magical creature or a dragon means killing a human being too. It’s murder; it makes no difference.”
“That’s true. But you know, why do you even want to stay?”
“Because Huntsdad is always so proud of me. I used to like having the attention of ovation or accomplishment; it always made me feel good inside. But more importantly, if I even try to escape or quit, then he’ll probably just finish me off. And I don’t want to die. At least, not just yet.”
“Yeah, we all think that way.”
“Yeah… I mean, who would want to die?”
They both remained quiet for a while, but Florence broke the silence with a little bit of wondering.
“All I really want now is to just see Shade again.” She said to herself. “I just want to remember what it’s like to be around him.”
Tyler looked over at Florence, who seemed as sad as she could’ve ever been. “You know, I don’t always use my dream charm. I could give it to you… that is, if you want.”
Flo had lost some sadness in her eyes. “Really?”
“Of course. I mean, I can tell how much you miss Shade. So why do you guys have to stop talking?”
“Aww, thanks, Tyler!” Florence said. “You know, sometimes… I really wish there were more members of the Huntsclan that are just like you.”
End Chapter Seven
Weell... that's it. Oooh, guess you found out who Florence is now, huh? XD Yeah, I know that I promised that Kevin was gonna show up a whole bunchies, but I wanted to get to something interesting. I dunno... but I guess he'll show up more in chapter eight. I'm seeing what I can do.
In the meantime, catch you all on the flip side... or something.
YAYA!!!! I can finaly see Florence again! *rubs Flo's new dream charm* Heeeee..... Awesome chapter. So happy we got to see powers. And the whole Jake + Ash thing kinda reminds me of Ed and Al, or the whole Jake/Trix/Spud group but with Ash and Shade. XD Very nice, the much anticipated update of AUA is finally here! :fup: I'm being over dramatic, sho update sooooner as YFWE stated! Heh, i'm greedy, but AUA is sho addicting.... ^^
