SHALL I COMPARE THEE TO A SUMMER'S DAY?Thou art more lovely and more temperate:Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,And summer's lease hath all too short a date:
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimm'd;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance or nature's changing course untrimm'd
This was ludicrous. Why did Kaya always insist on traveling the darkest paths in Spira first? Kira wandered lost, again, through what was perhaps the thickest forest in all of Spira, but it was also one of the most beautiful. She hear the sounds of life everywhere, and would pause the listen every now-and-then, but Kira rarely stopped longer than that, she was on a mission. She had to find Kaya or Abagail. She wasn't worried about the fiends she knew lurked in the depths of these woods, unless they were mad like the ones in Zanarkand's waters, which she doubted. There was no foul smell in the air. She pressed herself tightly against the trees as she walked the paths of thick branches, which really just made her life more difficult. It had recently rained -- of course -- and so the area was damp. She could just barely pick up Kaya's scent, and she didn't want to put her nose to the ground to pick it up better. She couldn't risk being seen like that. She sighed, disheartened, when she realized it was likely she was wandering in circles. After all, with no form of a guide, map or otherwise, she had no way of knowing in which direction Kaya went. And with so many possible paths, she could have gone anywhere.
It was not often that Kira's optimistic attitude was shot, but it definitely was today. Unfortunately, it had started raining before she could find proper shelter, and so she was still drying. Her skin was damp, and her hair clung to her body in the most annoying way. The further she went, the more humid and heavy the air became, so there was a good chance she wouldn't be dry anytime soon. But she stubbornly pressed on, determined to follow Kaya's faint scent and find her that very day. If not, then at least find out where Kaya is heading. She knew Kaya, and while the two girls cared for each other a great deal, Kira knew that Kaya would pressed on whenever Kira got herself lost. The reason was a simple one: it would be easier to find each other on open ground than to wander around a place like this aimlessly for hours. Maybe even days. But the climate wasn't helping at all. Kira felt heavier and heavier the more she pressed on, and soon she was all but dragging. She flopped to the ground, exhausted, leaning against the trunk of one of the immense trees this forest was plentiful in. She just had to rest, just for a little while. Then she'd keep going.
Kira didn't have the strength to get up and search for the fresh water to take the edge off her dehydration, which was apparently the main danger with dehydration if you didn't carry water on your person. Which, she didn't. Because she normally didn't need to. She leaned her head back, panting, feeling the strength ebb from her limbs more and more. She was close to falling asleep, but forced herself not to. She needed to stay alert to her surroundings, not because of the fiends but because of the people. She was already a pale person, but as her body weakened she grew more so. She didn't think it was possible, but it was as if her pigment drained with each panted exhale. She was certain Kaya could feel the strain Kira felt on her lungs to breath, and tried to open that connection. Maybe get a better sense of direction. But she was too weak for it now. She looked around with her eyes, moving her head as little as possible, trying to find a sign of a source of fresh water. She refused to let herself die here, but there was no way she was going to be rising at this very moment. So there she lay -- panting, weak, and vulnerable. The three things she tried her hardest not to be, especially given her personality.
Her only hope at this very moment, was that someone would find her, and he help her.
BUT THY ETERNAL SUMMER SHALL NOT FADENor lose possession of that fair thou owest;Nor shall Death brag thou wander'st in his shade,

When in eternal lines to time thou growest:
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this and this gives life to thee.
