The Falcion ghosts let out a loud cheer, and several went over to Striker. Rilk slapped him on the back and Adana was rapidly shaking his hand.
Only two of the remaining ghosts stayed back.
"Shouldn't you be congratulating your friend, or at least saying your final goodbyes?" Xavier said.
Roy shifted uneasily. "No, I already said goodbye. Besides, I wouldn't want his ego to get too big, now would I?" Roy smiled.
They stood their in silence for a few moments, and the ghosts slowly began to fade. Viridian Six was dimming, and with it, the ghosts were as well. Now that the trouble had settled, there was no reason for the Falcion's to remain, and not enough energy to keep them there for more than another minute or so.
"So, how do you think they'll do?"
"What, those morons? They'll get themselves in a lot more trouble, and then they'll grow old, but they'll be happy still. I wish I could be around for the wedding, though." Roy pointed to Teya with one finger and Striker with another.
"Me? They got along fine without me for ten years. I don't think anything will be different now."
"Well then," Xavier said, watching several of the Falcion's turn back into their spirits and return to the revolver, "ready to see your new home?"
"Not quite," Roy replied. "There was something I wanted to know first."
Xavier raised an eyebrow.
"In this battle, the ghost of every Falcion to ever die appeared to fight, correct?"
"Yes..." Xavier said slowly, seeing where it was going.
"Xavier, where is my mother?"
Xavier remained silent.
"Where is Jennifer Falcion!?"
"It... seems like we have much to discuss, Roy," Xavier said, extending his hand to Roy. "Come with me, and I'll answer all of your questions when we reach the other side."
Roy hesitated, and then grasped Xavier's hand. The two faded into tiny green spheres and returned to Viridian Six, which finally grew completely dim.
