Once more, Mika fell into dreams, and found herself in those cold, white Halls. Flames burned in the torches, as always. They're echoing and shadowed. It's almost physically cold, here in this place. It wasn't this way, last time. Not this bad.

A shiver ran through Mika when she realized where she was.  The shivering continued as the cold seeped into her body.  She wrapped her wings around herself as an attempt at a shield.  She crept through the hall, trying to figure out why she had ended up here again.  After a few moments she dared to speak up, "Hello?" she called softly.

Swallow me under and pull me apart
I understand, there's nothing left
Pain so familiar and close to the heart
No more, no less, I won't forget

I thought you said forever over and over
this sleepless night becomes, bitter oblivion
these thoughts run through my head, over and over
complaints of violins... become my only friends"

As if prompted by the word alone, once more it seemed as if the sun had come out on a grey day. Kore stepped from behind the pillar, just as she had when Shinji had disappeared.

Her golden head tilted slightly as she gazed at Mika, but waited for the girl to say something.

Mika noticed Kore and bowed in respect.  "Hello again." she said quietly.  She had to admit that entirely surprised to be back here, but this time it wasn't for Shinji being missing.  She bit her lower lip nervously, "I'm back again?" she posed the question carefully.  "Shinji made his way back."  Her mind darted to her conversations with Hunter, as she wondered why she was back.

Kore steepled her fingers. "When you involve yourself with the dead, they come back to haunt you. Whether that be physically or metaphorically. Which do you think this is, child?" Kore asked, her tawny head tilted.

Mika sighed lightly and rubbed her temple lightly.  "Well considering ever since I met Hunter in that hospital, I have spent half of my dreaming hours with him." She said quietly.  "I do have myself rather involved with the dead don't I?"  She looked down.  Her mind ran through all the time she had spent with Hunter, and her conversation with Kaya about her involvement in this realm. 

She looked at Kore, realizing that instead of a straight answer she had managed to ramble.  "I'm sorry, I didn't mean to ramble.  I know I physically spend time with one who is dead."  She rubbed the back of her head lightly.  "So I can assume this time I'm here because of Hunter?"

Kore inclined her head. "Indeed. You are here because of your black knight. Tell me how often you've wished to be able to see him in the day, be able to physically spend time with him. Be honest in this place." The spring goddess said softly, listening to her answer intently.

Mika bit her bottom thinking.  "I would not lie.  The more time I've spent with the more I have wished to spend time with him outside my dreams."  She wrapped a lock of hair around her finger.  "Ever since I first found him again, I've wanted to be able to spend time with him.  I would love to be able to have him here with me physically."  She looked down quietly, but then looked up at Kore, knowing she hadn't hidden the truth.

The spring goddess nodded her head. "You will be given a chance to retrieve the ability, the right to be able to do this. The price will be steep, choices will have to be made. Do you think you can do this, little queen? Do you have the heart and courage? Do you care for him enough?" The woman asked quietly.

Mika furrowed her brow slightly in thought.  She had talked about this with Hunter once.  She looked Kore in the eyes.  "The price is always steep is it not."  she said quietly.  "I believe in my heart that I can do this.  I have the heart, I trust my courage on this matter.  I care for my knight deeply.  He has been there for me when I needed him the most.  If there is something I can do for him, then I would gladly do it.  There are always choices that need to be made.  I think when the time comes I will be able to make them."  She said strongly.  If she could do something for Hunter she would do it.  She had decided that before.  "I know it will not be an easy thing, but I am ready to do it."

Kore brought her palms together, then parted them, leaving behind what appeared to be an oval Apache's Tear. It was on a simple leather thong. With a gesture, it vanished from her hands, and appeared around Mika's neck.

"That will allow you safe passage into the Underworld. When you awaken, you will pack a bag of whatever you might need, and leave at sunrise. You will make your way to the ocean. A boat will be waiting for you. Travel swiftly, young one." Kore said softly, her golden head bowing slightly. "Do not remove that necklace for any reason. Any reason."

A hand flew to her neck when the necklace appeared on it.  She touched it gently, feeling the new object around her throat.  She listened to Kore's words and nodded.

"I understand.  I will pack the bag and head to the shore when I wake.  I will be as swift as I can be.  The necklace shall not leave my neck."  She bowed forward in gratitude.  "Thank you." she said softly.

Like the sun had retreated behind clouds, the spring goddess' warmth was gone. And Mika awoke in her bed, once more.
