Noel hit the ground with a soft thud.
"Ngh... Where am I...?" he thought out loud as he picked himself up and looked around the desolate area known as Hollow Bastion. He had fallen in the still ruined part of the town, the part of the town usually teeming with Heartless. However, nothing stirred when the chrono warrior stood, picking his sword up off of the ground and sheathing it. His blue eyes scanned the area, trying to find something, anything familiar about it. When he couldn't recognize anything, he decided to explore and maybe find someone here who could tell him where he is.
He stepped up a staircase he found leading up to what looked like an old torn down wall, hoping there might be a good vantage point to where he could probably see a town, some people, or a way out of here. After making the trek up the stone steps, he came to a torn down part of the wall and looked out.
"Eew..." he muttered, seeing a gorge filled with swirling black water. Now he was sure no one lived here. Their water source was beyond tainted, so this place-
His eyes widened as he realized that this black sea wasn't swirling. It wasn't even churning. It was alive. He caught the first glimpse of yellow eyes, and slowly stepped back, heart pounding as it dawned on him. A sea... a sea of monsters...
Noel decided that it wouldn't be a good idea anymore to stick around, and looked away from the hole in the wall to find a way out. If those monsters caught a whiff of him, he was sure it'd be over... He found more steps and scaled them, keeping an eye over his shoulder to make sure a black sea of death wasn't going to come bursting out from the bottom of the enclosed staircase.
After a few minutes, he arrived at the top of the long staircase on the top of some plateau, which, to his relief, overlooked a town of some sort. However, Noel didn't smile, nor did he feel all that happy about it. Serah's gone. My home's gone. And it's my fault... he closed his eyes and tilted his head downward, letting the faces of his friends flash before him.
They were all gone. Hope and Sazh probably lost, like him. Lightning was apparently dead, if she wasn't already due to Etro's death. Serah died in his arms. What did he have left? What if this world was deserted?
"... All my fault." he muttered, letting the weight of what he did fall onto him completely.
