The Ancient Tree Chapter 5
Don't Be Too Sure
Come, Quick! Crono yelled as the three companions ran to the tree in the forest. It wasnt night yet, but they found Kinishi preparing to break the spell.
Hold it right there! Marle commanded.
Oh, its the pretty lady I captured. Now small feeble creature tell me how you got out? Kinishi said, his voice cracking.
In your dreams!!!!!
Hahahah! What do you want to do, kill me perhaps?
Yeah!! And well see who has the last laugh!! Well kill you!! Marle almost couldnt control herself. She took out her crossbow, loaded it, and shot an arrow. It went straight in Kinishis shoulder, but it didnt seem to bother him. He was concentrating on something, probably a spell.
Crono took the opportunity that he wasnt looking to attack. He unsheathed his sword and ran towards Kinishi. But since none could see Kinishis face, Crono didnt know he was looking. Kinishi was totally prepared, and he suspected that sort of attack. Out of nowhere, he drew a spear and Crono didnt see this until it was too late and Kinishi had cut him across the chest. He fell down besides Marle, who was trying to cast an ice spell.
She hadnt used her magic since the Lavos incident, so it took her longer than before, but eventually, two giant ice blocks came crashing down on Kinishi. Lucca had also prepared her most powerful fire spell and launched it right after Marle had finished her spell.
Crono was up and attacked by slashing his sword in Kinishi. Kinishi counterattacked with a shadow spell, Dark Matter, one spell that Magus (another ally) also had. But it didnt affect them much since it was a spell from one of their allies. Marle and Lucca made an Antipode, Water and Fire spell, which affected greatly their enemy. Kinishi cast a dark beam on Marle and she fell unconscious.
Lucca threw some fire in the air and Crono caught it, crashed down on Kinishi. But Kinishi attacked with a dark beam on Crono, and he also fell unconscious. Lucca was the only one standing.
Well, well, well, apparently you are the only survivor. Well you wont be for long. He raised his spear and fell down a sword in his chest.
T-tanks Cro Marle?
Crono is still unconscious. When I saw Kinishi was about to kill you, I picked it up and, well, she was interrupted by a moan.
Ugh Wha-what happened? Crono looked up weakly.
We did it, we killed Kinishi! Marle exclaimed with joy. Come on Crono, get up and lets go see Glenn.
The gang went to the Epoch and took off to 602ad. They went to Fionas house and entered. Fiona was on her bed lying still; she was really pale.
How is she? Crono asked. He hadnt seen the tears in Glenns frog eyes. Glenn had been transformed into a frog but got used to living that way.
She was one of my friends she didnt merit this shes gone
Everyone was silent in the room, except for the murmurs of Glenn.
I know what its like to lose loved ones. I already experienced that. He fell silent.
I-Im sorry Glenn for what happened But shes avenged we killed Kinishi Marle said softly.
No one spoke for a while. Fionas husband hadnt been home, and he arrived just then. The heroes of time hadnt thought about how they would tell Eric.
Eric saw his wife, and looked at the gang. What happened? Did she get hurt?
Glenn motioned for the others to leave. I will tell him. He turned to Eric. Youre wife, has been hurt very badly by Kinishi, who wants to have something from the year 1002. She has been killed.
Eric just sat there staring at Glenn like he had just made a bad joke. You re kidding, right. Come on, Fiona, I got it, wake up now.
Fiona didnt budge.
I-its like I told you, Eric.
No, no, Fiona! You cant leave me!!! Fiona!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He began sobbing and couldnt stop. He cried, till all the tears were out. He finally accepted that Fiona was gone, and said his final words to her. I love you, Fiona. Rest in peace, you have been avenged. With that he picked her up and carried her in the forest of small trees, and placed her next to his favorite spot at the center of the forest. He had gone alone and took a shovel with him. He dug a hole and placed Fionas body in it. Rest in peace.

Yes, you are right on that point. I failed to kill them, but I will kill them.
Master, do you know they think you are dead?
Yes I knew that. And I also know that I will have to kill those brats before I can conquer the tree, and then the whole world of Guardia. I will conquer the whole universe! Mwahahahahahahaaaa!!!!!!!
