FFXIII Episode Zero-Encounter Chapter 5SPOILER WARNING! READ AT YOUR OWN RISK!Part I: Encounter-Chapter FiveLightning thought she would just walk around aimlessly for awhile before heading to work, but found herself at the shopping mall.
Every year tourists come from all around for the fireworks festival in Bodhum. The festival had been around since ancient times, and there were quite a few legends surrounding it. The most popular being, 'If you pray to the fireworks, your wish will come true.' Just that. Nothing else required.All you have to do is pray. Probably because it was so simple it had been believed in for decades, possibly longer.
Everyone has wishes. No matter how happy you are, there will be something that could make you happier. That's why on the night of the festival, Bodhum's gates swell with many times the usual number of people. With that many people gathering together all at once, accidents are bound to happen. So on festival night, Bodhum's security force are out on patrol. That night Light
FFXIII Episode Zero-Encounter Chapter 4SPOILER WARNING! READ AT YOUR OWN RISK!Part I: Encounter-Chapter FourAccording to old records, The Strange Ruins of Bodhum have been here for hundreds of years. The old buildings and residences of Cocoon are usually called 'historic,' but things from Pulse are called 'The Strange Ruins.'
It was probably brought here during the War of Revelations, as materials to repair the places that had been destroyed. It is well known that the fal'Cie would bring in materials from Pulse to maintain the structures of Cocoon.But the strange thing is, in all those hundreds of years it was never used as materials to repair the buildings, it was never used for construction, it was never returned to Pulse. It had just remained in Bodhum, waiting.
Whether there are plans for it, or whether it is being saved for something, no one knows. For the immortal fal'Cie several hundred years mean nothing. No human could understand the thoughts of the fal'Cie. In any case, it was all a mystery.Perhaps
FFXIII Episode Zero-Encounter Chapter 3SPOILER WARNING! READ AT YOUR OWN RISK!Part I: Encounter-Chapter ThreeLightning had tried not to look like she was in a bad mood, though she was worried that it didn't work. When she had returned home late last night, she didn't really talk much with Serah. I'm tired, she said, and shut herself in her room. She didn't want to say anything she might regret. Lightning thought if she opened her mouth she would start yelling at Serah to break up with that guy. She didn't want to tell Serah she was against it. She knew her sister's temperament better than anyone. Though she seems to be gentle and weak, on the inside she is tough. If Lightning told her that she was against it just because she didn't like him, Serah would try to change Lightning's mind and keep arguing about it until she did. She didn't want to have to go through that."Serah?" she called. A moment passed."She's gone, huh
." Lightning thought, "Hm?"A note was taped onto their refrigerator: "Dear sis
there is som
FFXIII Episode Zero-Encounter Chapter 2SPOILER WARNING! READ AT YOUR OWN RISK!Part I: Encounter-Chapter TwoThe sea breeze felt good on her cheek. Serah walked aimlessly along the promenade, and stretched her arms out wide. The weather was beautiful. The area around here was quiet. In this season all the tourists went to the beach to swim in the ocean. Team NORA's cafe has probably been busy since morning. Even if it weren't the season, today is Lebreau's day to work. Her cooking always manages to bring in the locals.That's probably why Snow was late. He probably said "I'll leave the rest to you guys." and then tried to leave, but then one of the regulars dragged him into a conversation. Seeing that image in her mind made Serah smile."Hey!" she heard a voice say, and she turned around. It wasn't Snow. It was the member of NORA named Gadot. Since he was riding the airbike by himself, he was probably just returning to work. Or maybe Lebreau had asked him to get some ingredients."So, he's going to be late...right?" she loo
FFXIII Episode Zero-Encounter Chapter 1SPOILER WARNING! READ AT YOUR OWN RISK!Part I: Encounter-Chapter OneShe knew she was surrounded, but she felt no nervousness or panic. She only thought about how it would save her the time it would take to look for them. "Just like we heard." Lightning murmured as she readied her sword. There were several Bloodbaths, monsters with appearances like fish and had amphibious arms and legs that inhabited the water's edge. On the outskirts of the coastal city, Bodhum, these sorts of aquatic monsters appeared quite often. It wasn't only humans that wanted to live here, with its warm temperature, water, and resort-like atmosphere, it seems even monsters find it easy living.Lightning could detect four of the reddish grey lumps in the area. She sensed two behind her. One began to creep about. It was preparing to attack. She sliced her sword down the right side of her vision. Resistance. Now to the left. Her sword flashed, becoming her name, through the Bloodbath's vitals. Now two are down. Li
