A short while after you arrive at the place of the explosion. You instantly know that it must have been here, because what should be black like the rest of this whole area seems purified, bright and flowers are growing there! What power could make this happen?
After a moment of hesitation you pick up the diary and start reading what's left...
How about Dark Pigasus? xD You manage to defeat two of theses creatures and watch them turn into black dust, while the third one escapes. You start to understand that anyone that has been possessed for too long seems to be lost for good. Maybe there is no need to use more of your magical powers in vain. Laticia, who's fine again seems shocked: "I think these were Pigasi! Only that they are dark now. It's such a shame, they ususally are so kind and funny. I wonder what's next...". Suddenly, you get interrupted by your pet which seems to be very excited. Over there, on a branch, there hangs a piece of fabric. "This belongs to Chiosa! She must have been attacked and went this way afterwards!", you conclude. While walking along the shore of the lake in order to find Chiosa, you have the feeling of constantly being watched by thousands of eyes lurking in the darkness. After a while you reach an abandoned cabin and enter it. You step into some kind of sitting room for workers. There are chairs and tables, working clothes, a restroom and some armchairs around a fireplace. Suddenly you realize that there is someone sitting in one of the armchairs...
Artwork of the "Dark Lake". I put together what my character would look like - Hammer, Smaragd Owl and Light Angel armor (anyone else here with this combo?) <3
Chiosa has to know! So, you run back to the cathedral and as soon as you found her you tell her that she needs to come, but there is no time to explain! Once back, she notices the dead boy and stops dead, though her whole body is shaking. After a few moments her face is hardening and then, without prior warning, she transforms into her Fennec form and dashes into the cave. Taken by surprise, you run after her. "Chiosa, wait! Who is that? What are you planning to do?", you shout, but she won't listen. Without hesitation she jumps into the Amethyst Lake, finds the hole with the missing Amethyst and vanishes through it.
With a deafening scream the shadow creature lets go off the young man and explodes into black dust. The boy is now lying on the ground and looks horrible. You assume that he has been possessed by the shadow for too long. Dull black hair surrounds his emaciated face. A pair of tired blue eyes is looking at you while you kneel down next to him. "Chi- Chiosa, is she okay?...", he asks with a weak voice. Then his body slackens with his eyes just staring in the air. He's gone and you look at his body and just don't know what to say or feel. After a while Laticia breaks the calm with a choked voice: "I think we should go to the Dark Lake as fast as we can. This guy, he went to school here... it's terrifying to see him like that!".
