Aruko / Arco

Version 2
On that very day, within one with the dreams that we both of us are inDo you manage to recall any memories of it?of the cold winds that was on that very day
The birds that were roaming freely in the skies above usA trail of clouds that forms a smiling shapewhich trails wherever the eastern winds brings it to
Valiantly trying to survive purely with your own strength all aloneIts just that I really miss being held by your words of loveJust wanted to hold onto your hands, and wanted to silently protect themBut in the end I ended up running awayPlease never let me go
Thank you o' beautiful personyou are one of my very first true friendFrom the very first moment that we've have met, you believed in me and also for everything good that you have doneIt was one of my true happiness
On that very day, both of us were awaken by a warm early callingIt sort of felt like, wherever we wished to visit such places that we had in our mind, it somehow becomes more transparent, almost like a reflection of what is going to happen later on that very day
The young birds then starts to chirp onto the tunes of the morning skiesWhile I was looking up at the moving clouds, I started to ponder..If our lives start to change a little, will you still continue to love me?
Goodbye o' beautiful personYou are my very last true friendNo matter in which ever time you are in, never forget of the of never-fading light that you always bring with you
As water flows from a higher mountain areas, like how rivers was formed and brings life to all of usIt is very similar like how this world pours its love back onto us all
Just think what if one day, every single thing in this world started to loses its formand when it was given a chance, what was the only thing will we can hold so dear at that moment?
Why couldn't it be more faster, something that simple should be really easy to noticeTo continue being hurt or still to be in lovebut even so, I still believe that both of us will be able to forgive one another
Just that I honestly wanted to hold onto your handsand I want to silently protect, but I always end up running away (shyly)Please never let me go
On the very moment that we have firstly met, you believed in me and also for everything good that you have doneIt truly made me happyI really-really love youjust wanted to hold onto your hands and want to silently protect it
Valiantly even today still trying to survive alongside with youYou are my very-very last true friendNo matter in which ever time that we are placed into, both together with that never fading ray of lightthat both of us now held

{ Story Mode - Maaya no uta }
It might have been after all those changes that I have went through, the way I think starts to recap everything all at once. But I was sure, even if the heaven’s doors finally closes and disappears into another dimension, I am sure that this place where I stand right now is on heavenly grounds. I float myself into the air, it feels like a new body, especially when the way I see things are not the same like my older body. Indeed this body is a magnificent gift from the creator. All transformation differs from one another, each has their own strengths. This fourth form is flight mode, for some reason it is fast, faster than lightning.. I flew so high up into the air, and looked down to endless green pastures.. heavenly animals are all in unison, living their lives happily. Its rather comfortable, these new clothing of mine, it looks like the surface of a stealth jet, but all layers are in white cloth that sometimes retract and soften according to wind conditions.
My only understanding how my flight mode can work is these lines of light aura that constantly circles me, from my waist to my feet and disappearing at the end. The more speed I want, the higher the light compression will be. Indeed truly a light based engine. My heart somehow received signals of a certain familiar voice, she was talking about me in my absence. She said that I should have realized it by now, that she was waiting for my return to her. Somehow like screaming in silence, but she was doing it elegantly. I tried to sense the source of where my princess direction is. Somewhere in the far horizon perhaps.. But I’m sure, it is her wave aura. It gives off a similar signal as mine.She had enough of waiting for me she said silently in her heart.. and because of that she feels really distressed. Well then, if the lady wished for me, then I must not disappoint her. I tried to increased the light density of the flight engine aura, and it reacts instantly through my inner instincts. That just made me surprised actually. Because the speed is tremendous and ridiculously fast, and at that moment, a distant memory was playing inside of my mind, a voice comes saying, “.. this clothing will never ever fail you.” I trust those words to my heart. In a great distance, my princesses noticed a sort of a ray of cloud in a line, like a jet approaching her, because it was rather difficult for me to slow down and I had to deploy my air brakes, but it seems inertia and gravity of this world is far greater than the previous worlds that I was on. On quick thinking, I felt that I just pick her up right there and then, without stopping!
And that is what I did, I approached her in the middle of the city that she was in and took her from the thousands of people around her, at a great speed. By the creator’s wishes, the moment I hugged her.. The winds that surround the city instantly turned into endless flowers, almost like an imaginary wedding ceremony which gives the most surprise to everyone around. I actually saw in a microseconds from the iris of my princess eyes, the reflection of myself on how I looked at her with pure determination and love. She also saw my colorful aura lights which was on the high speed compression mode.
She has a soft body, almost fragile.. But she has always been there for me, during the hard times one time in the past. She has always believed in me.. even when the only first time that I was able to prove myself was only at this time today. “Forgive me, my dear love.. I have made you wait for a long time..”
She was in tears, her only wish is to be by my side..
