Harmony eventually fell asleep on my lap. I felt oddly protective of her, since it was sort of my fault she had lost Kyoshiro. After a while, Sylvester took over.
"Go spend some time with Jay," he said, softly so as not to wake Harmony.
"I'll come back soon" I promised. He smiled back at me.
I had no inkling anything was wrong, although I knew he was carrying something of serious power. I just hoped it was nothing to worry about. I trusted Sylvester, and he was a good friend.
After spending a couple of hours with Jay, I got collared by Aria and a couple of the other girls, who were already planning our wedding.
"We haven't even had the engagement party yet!" I laughed.
"Well y'all better get a move on!" Aria replied giggling.
I pretended to be serious for a moment "So, how does the entertainment work?"
We all looked at each other for a moment, before bursting into laughter again.
"Hate to break the party up guys, but I promised Sylvester I'd come back to check on Harmony, and that was a while ago."
"Aw, spoilsport" Aria said, still laughing. I poked my tounge out at her as I went out the door, ducking as she chucked a cushion at me. Still laughing, I went up the stairs.
I pushed open Harmony's door.
"What are you doing with the Soulsphere?" Harmony was saying, sounding alarmed "Sylvester?"
"Sylvester!" I said, sharply. "Don't you dare. There has been enough pain. Just leave it. You cannot bring back someone from the dead. Not without another life in exchange. You will kill yourself. What about Aria?"
He didn't look at me or Harmony. He seemed transfixed by the Soulsphere. I went over to him, and forced him to look at me.
"Sylvester, please." I whispered "Don't do it."
