Later that night, after they finished eating dinner, everyone decided to head to bed and when Alix went to his room, he pushed in the door and took his shirt off as he felt a pain in his chest and he looked in the mirror and noticed the star markings had appeared in his eyes once again and he gnashed his teeth.
"What the hell is this?" he asked himself as his armor appeared on his hand.
His eyes began glowing brightly, increasing the pain in his chest and he fell to his knees on the floor, bearing the pain.
Alix began getting a storm of different types of images within his head and despite how he was feeling, he managed to take it all in despite not being able to see them clearly.
As Adora was passing by his room to get to hers, her eyes widened as the same star marking appeared in her eyes for a split second, then disappeared and she stepped back and saw Alix's door was open and she peeked in and her eyes widened when she saw him on the floor.
"Alix," she said as she rushed in and he looked at her.
"Adora, I don't want to hurt you," he said before clutching his chest and she sighed as she saw the marking in his eyes then she approached him and he clenched his fists.
"I don't have another option here, I will open another gate, this will hurt," she said as she placed her hand against his chest and her eyes began glowing red as well as his eyes and the gate began opening and his body began glowing red and the others sensed an ominous aura within the ship but didn't know where it was coming from.
"Adora.." Alix said as his armor disappeared and Adora smiled, then hugged him tightly and his eyes widened as he was about to grab her with his claws, but he held back and took a deep breath then raised her off of him before standing up.
Adora then stepped away from Alix and he closed his eyes, allowing the energy to flow within his body while handling the pain and Adora left staring at him.
"Even I can't handle that amount of pain, you are amazing," Adora mumbled and he heard her then smiled as flames formed around the tip of his claws and she looked at it then at him.
'Power comes with a price, I wonder what price I will have to pay later on for all of this, I am not all powerful, but it is enough,' Alix thought as he saw a woman smiling at him in his visions and this time he saw her clearly.
She was tall, had long silky brown hair, shimmering green eyes and there was a child in her arms.
"Who is that?" he mumbled and Adora looked at him before sighing.
'I guess I don't have to do anything, I wonder if he will ever need me in the future, so far, he has been handling himself on his own, I have been helping with training, but even I have to admit that he is far stronger than me now and he is not dependent, he has the will to fight for what he wants, he was like this ever since he was small, strong,' she thought with a smile then Alix returned to normal and opened his eyes.
He looked at her and saw she was smiling then he approached her and she didn't notice.
"What are you thinking about? You are lost," he said before placing his finger under her chin and she flinched, then looked at him and her cheeks flushed upon noticing how close he had gotten to her.
ραпdα Йᴏνêl(сòm)"What?" she asked and he chuckled.
"Thanks for your help, Adora," he responded as he leaned in closer to her and she pulled back and he patted her on the head and she grabbed onto his hand and he glanced at her.
"What is it? Don't like when someone pats you?" he asked as she got up and hugged him tightly and his eyes widened as he placed his hand around her and sighed.
"What is it, Adora?" he asked as tears came to her eyes and she wiped them then raised off of him and smiled.
"Sorry, I didn't that on instinct," she responded.
"It's okay, I don't mind, is something on your mind?" he asked as her tummy grumbled and she sighed then he smiled and patted her on the shoulder.
"Come on, I will make you something to eat," he said as he walked away.
'You don't have to do that," she replied as she followed him and he glanced at her with a piercing look in his eyes and she flinched.
"You have done a lot for me woman, it's the least I can do, I intend to repay all the favors after you tell me everything about myself," he said as he grabbed onto her arm and took her to the kitchen where he grabbed onto her waist and lifted her up then placed her to sit on the stool.
"Stay put, I won't take long," he said as he took out things to cook while she stared at him with her eyes narrowing.
'Something is not right here, he is being too thankful, what's going on here? Is he messing with me? I feel weird,' she thought, lowering her head and Alix looked back at her then sighed, knowing she was just like him in many ways, not used to certain things.
"Adora," he said as he was mixing a batter and she looked at him.
"What's the matter?" she asked.
"The pain is that which I can handle, don't push yourself too much for opening the gates, I can see you are totally lost right now, you know, I saw a part of your memory, on the night that your mother died, tell me something, why is it only you who can open the gates and why was your mother within my memories?" he asked and her eyes widened as he turned around and looked at her and her eyes shook.
