Hadrian stared at Zacke. Damn, I can't do that. He couldn't do it---take off his pants in front of everyone for the sake of a woman. Too chivalrous. Not his thing. He would most likely just get Adel's bloody garments and wrap that around Rinoa. That was why shower was made anyway. Hadrian decided to just steer off Zacke's way. He did look comfortable like that---just socks and t-shirt. Yup, he did.
He was planning to introduce himself too, but it didn't matter now. They had to get down here somehow.
"Anyway, I'm sure we can take care of any remaining introductions later. We should get Rinoa back to Mr. Leonhart, and make our report." Zacke made his way over to Stella and Rinoa. He seemed to be expecting that everyone would follow him.
"Lead the way," he said to them.
"That's easier said than done actually." Hadrian walked towards them. "We're kind of trapped here right now." He pointed towards the crushed wall, hinting how high they were from the ground. "Heyyy, I have an idea. Why don't we all sit together and watch the sunrise?" He kidded and sat on the ground crossing his legs. "I've been up on my feet all night, thanks to that amazon of a sorceress." He yawned.
"That's easier said than done actually." Zacke looked at Hadrian, who was coming toward them. "We're kind of trapped here right now." He pointed at the gaping hole in the tower wall, implying that they were too high up to get out from anywhere.
Zacke rolled his eyes. Well how did you guys get up here? He decided against actually voicing that thought aloud. "Does anyone have a phone? We should at least let a Garden authority know Adel is dead, and hopefully they can get some transportation up here to us."
Stella started to lead Rinoa over to the towers wall. Maybe the sorceress could use her magic to get them down to the garden.
"Have you got a way to get in touch with the Commander, a phone maybe?" she asked Rinoa glancing over her shoulder at Zacko who had suggested it in the first place. Rinoa just shook her head and gazed out the window with a blank look in her eyes.
"Come on Rinoa! Snap out of it" Stella growled looking up into the older woman's eyes, "Adel is dead and we need your help to get out of here"
Rinoa swallowed hard and nodded slowly raising her arm pointing at the glass in front of her. Suddenly a burst of magic fell from her finger tips. It shattered the sturdy bricks of the tower exposing the air outside. The swirls of magic coalesced and formed the shape of a Lions head just outside the tower. Stella grinned up at Rinoa giving her a pat on the shoulder. Moments later the sound of an airship filled the tower and a red streak zoomed passed the window.
"Thank Hyne... the Ragnarock, at last" Stella said with a sigh.
Rinoa musters a grin at Stella, the Ragnarok has come. "Right on time?" she says. That's when the tower starts to shake and debris start falling from the ceiling. The place is about to crumble.
"Ahem! Is this thing on?" Selphie's voice echoes from the Ragnarok. "There they are! Over there, Squall." The red airship turns back to head to the small opening of the tower. "Hello, kiddos!"
"You punks still alive, eh?" It's Seifer's voice this time. "Damn, I lost that bet." The hatch of the airship moves closer to the tower.
"Give me that, Seifer." Quistis says, the shuffling of the microphone can be heard. "A mission well done, SeeDs. Adel's forcefield was taken down enabling us to come up here and get you. Now, with nothing to hold it up, Adel's fortress will be thrown down the ocean. I request everyone to board the ship as quickly as possible. We will now open the hatch."
The steel hatch separates from its hinge proceeding to lower itself in a snap. Waiting inside are Zell and Irvine, encouraging them to make haste. The tremor inside Adel's tower gets worse. The ground becomes unstable. In the nick of time, the whole gang manages to run inside the airship before the hatch closed.
From inside Ragnarok, you can see the whole structure of Adel's floating tower. Looking at it from this far, it is like looking at a dark snake that seems to be melting away from the sun's rays. Balamb Garden hovers a little ways below and can be seen moving away from it. With nothing but the ocean and the blue sky surrounding you, a feeling of accomplishment can be sensed within. Everything you have done for this mission all comes down to this moment--this feeling of satisfaction.
The tyranny of the Evil Sorceress and her minions, the DoTNAs, is over. Mission Trinity has finally come to an end.
Rinoa looks back at all of you as Selphie assists her to the helm. "Thank you," is what she says. "Thank you, SeeDs."
