The Angel in Skyloft
Chapter 4 The Dark Aura
“What is so impressive about this? We are still in Skyworld.” Pittoo said, bored.
“We aren't in Skyworld! We're in Skyloft!” Pit said, excited
Pittoo raised a brow. “In where?”
“Skyloft.” Palutena's voice echoed around them. “In this world humans live in-”
“Yeah yeah, Pit stain here told me; They supposedly live on floating islands and ride giant ass birds.” he said dully, clearly unimpressed. “And you expect me to believe this?”
“Uh yeah.” Palutena said. “Pit I'm going to send you to Skyloft so Mr. Non-believer here can see.”
“Here I'll show you!” Pit said as he began to fly away but stopped to see his twin with crossed arms looking at him through narrowed eyes, indicating he wasn't budging.
Pit flew back to Pittoo grabbing his hand as he pulled him towards the direction of the floating island. Pittoo first withdrew his hand from Pit's touch but after Pit grabbed it again he “reluctantly” let him. It had been Pittoo's plan the whole time. He just wanted Pit to be the one to reach out for him for once. When Pit did, he silently smiled to himself.
Pit, oblivious to the fact that his twin tricked him, held Pittoo's hand and flew them to the outskirts of the giant floating island. The rock town was dark except for the moonlight beaming down on it and a few lights from the insides of houses.
“Wow! They really do live on a rock in the sky!” Pit said excitedly as he recalled his hand from Pittoo's.
Pittoo reluctantly let Pit take his hand back and stole a peek at his lighter half. His face was simply too cute. Dark Pit looked away to hide his smile and acted as if he could care less about Skyloft.
“It's no big deal.” He lied. He was actually surprised there was a floating rock housing humans.
“No bit deal? Humans so close to the sky! It's soo awesome.” said Pit, enthusiastically
Palutena laughed. “Alright Pit focus. We are here to practice some night flying remember? I'm going to cut the power of flight, so catch a wind current and we will begin from there.”
“Yes Lady Palutena.” Pit said ready to catch the current this time.
The power was cut and Pit began to fall. Dark Pit tried his best to mask his horror as he watched his twin fall, holding the urge to dive after him.
Pit, with a determined smile on his face, let himself fall until he felt the need to open his wings. As soon as he did, he caught the current and was soaring through the night.
“Yeahahahha!” the angel cheered.
“Nice job Pit!” Palutena praised.
“You aren't even flying. You're just gliding.” Dark Pit said as he flew beside Pit.
Pit glared back at his dark half. “I know that!”
“Couldn't you just give Pit stain here the Pegasus wings? That way you don't have to haul his ass everywhere.” Pittoo asked the goddess.
“It had been locked away for 25 years. Who knows if it was still any good? Besides, Hades destroyed it before he swallowed Pit.” Palutena's voice echoed.
“Yuck, I don't wanna relive that again!” Pit said.
Palutena laughed. “Alright Pit, like we did earlier, glide down to one of the islands.”
“Okay!” Pit said as he shifted his wings just so, pulling out of the current. He made his way towards the island with Dark Pit shadowing him.
Pit aimed for the ground and landed perfectly on his feet. When he did, he started to dance and cheer. “wooo whoooo!” He cheered.
Pittoo landed on the ground and watched Pit dance and shake his body. His eyes observing the way his body swayed and jumped. His eyes fell to Pit's shaking ass, causing the darker Pit to turn away with a blushing grin.
“Nice landing Pit.” Palutena praised.
“Thanks!” Pit thanked her.
“Alright next let's try-” Palutena suddenly cut off.
“Lady Palutena?” Pit asked concerned. Both angels glanced up at the sky.
“Sorry Pit, hang on just a second.” Lady Palutena said her voice fading away.
The angels glanced at each other both confused with what was going on.
“Lady Palutena?” Pit asked again.
He received no response.
“What's going on? Where is she?” Pit asked, worried
“Don't worry about her Pitty.” Pittoo said as he looked at Pit with hungry eyes. He approached his lighter half, prowling to his prey.
Pit was still preoccupied with Lady Palutena's sudden disappearence that he didn't even see his dark reflection spring up and claim his lips. His eyes were immediately wide at the unexpected kiss. Pit pulled away and looked at his twin with large blue eyes. Those blue eyes looking back into his red ones made Pittoo's dark heart skip a beat. He hid the smile threatening to show with another slam of his lips. He bit back the moan in his throat from the taste of the innocent angel.
A strong gust of wind crept up out of no where and blew the angels down. Pittoo smashed into Pit as they tumbled down to the ground. The angels let out painful groans as their bodies collided and their heads bumping together and ending up with Dark Pit lying on top of Pit. Dark Pit glanced down at Pit whom was rubbing his head where they collided. His blue eyes linked with Pittoo's.
“What the heck was that?” Pittoo asked as he looked around the sky.
“I thought you did that?”
Pittoo let out a very low and rare chuckle. “Like I need an excuse to lay on you, babe.”
His red eyes flickered with lust as Pit's face plastered red. His heart skipped another beat at the sight of a flustered Pit. He was simply too cute for his own good.
“B-babe?” Pit stuttered, blushing even more
“Shut up.” Pittoo said as he (reluctantly) got up off Pit and turned his back on him
Pit sat up, looking away from his dark half, completely grateful that Lady Palutena hadn't seen that. Pit didn't know what to make of Dark Pit. Sometimes Pittoo would call him names, push him around, or just flat out ignore him, then there were other times where he would slam himself into Pit, lock lips, caress his skin and touch him in ways that made Pit feel hot and mixed with confused feelings. Pit didn't understand Dark Pit. He knew Pittoo didn't hate him like he used to but he was confused on why he acted like this. It couldn't be hate or distrust. Pit knew that Dark Pit trusted him and kinda liked him maybe a little less then a friend. He wondered if Pittoo kissed and touched him for some odd sense of power or control over him? Pit had beaten Pittoo in previous brawls, could this be some way to show him a new sense of power? Was Pittoo trying to show Pit that he was better then him? More powerful? Pit didn't know nor understand.
He glanced over at Pittoo with concern. His twin's face had an intense glare as he scanned the night sky. His body positioned defensively as if he was about to attack something.
“Pittoo? Are you okay?” Pit asked.
“Shut up.” Dark Pit hissed at him. He glanced his red eyes at him before he snapped back into his scan.
Pit gave him a look before he stood up and glanced up at the sky, wondering where the goddess went.
“Lady Palutena?” Pit called out.
A sudden gust of wind appeared behind Pit. He glanced over his shoulder as he felt the strong wind, gasping as he made a full turn to see a small black tornado. The little tornado began to suck Pit into it. Pit tried to run from it but the gust was too strong. The angel could feel himself being pulled away.
“Whooooaaa!! Pittoo!” He called out.
Pittoo had felt the gust of wind but thought nothing of it since it didn't seem that strong to him. When he heard Pit call for him, he glanced over his shoulder to yell at him to shut up but saw the horror of the little twister sucking Pit in, he immediately sprang into action.
The twister managed to swallow Pit then began to descend from the island, taking the flightless angel with it.
“Pittoo!! Help!!” Pit called as he was tossing and turning inside the tornado.
Dark Pit dove off the island and aimed for the twister that imprisoned his Pit.
The twister suddenly dispersed into nothing, letting Pit just fall.
Pit yelled as he tumbled down, desperately trying to open his wings to catch a current or by some miracle fly. He looked up at Dark Pit with pleading desperate eyes.
That look itself was than enough motivation for Dark Pit to flap his wings harder.
“Pit!” The dark angel cried out desperately
“Pit, I have to pull y-” Palutena's voice returned around the angels. When she saw what was going on she cried out for him. “Pit! Pit!!!!”
“Lady Palutena!” Pit cried back. “Pittoo!”
“Hurry Pittoo!” Lady Palutena urged the dark angel
Dark Pit pushed his limits and flapped harder as he reached out for his light half.
He was close! Pit was just in reach! When Pit saw Dark Pit reaching for him, he extended his arm to reach back.
Pittoo grabbed Pit's hand and tried to fly up but Pittoo's strength was weak from how fast he had to flap his wings. He grabbed Pit's hand and hoisted him up tightly in his arms.
“Good job Pittoo!” Palutena praised the dark angel.
The dark angel ignored the goddess, being preoccupied with having Pit in his arms. He flew Pit up, passing by every floating island so he could have more time to hold onto Pit. He reached the island they were on before the twister snatched Pit. As soon as they reached the island, Pittoo wanted to collapse as soon as he stepped foot onto it but he didn't. He wasn't about to show any sign of weakness. He gave one more tight squeeze before he dropped Pit onto the ground.
“Idiot.” he snapped as he walked to the other side of the island, crossing his arms angrily.
“Ow” Pit said once he was dumped on the ground. He took a second to let the pain pass before he stoof up, facing Pittoo. “You didn't have to drop me!”
Dark Pit watched over his shoulder before growling back and looked away.
“Oh Pit! I'm so sorry!” Palutena apologized.
Pit looked up at the sky and smiled, happy the goddess returned. “Lady Palutena! I was worried! What happened to you?”
“I'm sorry Pit! As soon as you landed, something wrong caught my attention. As soon as I went to check it out, I couldn't get back through until only a few moments ago!”
“What's wrong?” Pit asked.
“I'm not really sure, I-”
“Something is after you Pit.” Pittoo snapped.
Pit looked over at Dark Pit. The dark angel looking over with narrowed eyes and crossed arms.
“What?” Both the goddess and Pit said in unison.
“You didn't detect it goddess?”
“I felt if after Palutena left. There was a dark aura lurking and it wanted you Pit.” Pittoo said through his teeth. He was absolutely pissed that something was after what was his.
“Something is after me?” Pit asked in utter disbelief. “Who would go after me?”
Who wouldn't go after you? Dark Pit thought to himself.
“I'm not sure Pit. But I think this thing that is after you may have been what wouldn't allow me to get back in touch with you two. Whatever this thing is, I don't think it is safe to continue with these flying practices for awhile.”
“What? No! Aww man.” Pit whined. “But, I guess you're right Lady Palutena. If there is something that is after me, I guess it's better that I don't practice flying here.”
“It's sad to say so. This place is really working for you better than Skyworld. Alright you two. Let's return home.” Palutena said as she summoned the beam of light, calling them home.
“I didn't say I wanted to return with you!” Dark Pit snapped at the goddess once they appeared before her in her temple. “I could have gotten back on my own.”
“No you couldn't have.” Palutena said as she faced both angels. One happy to see her while the other not so “The portal between our world and that one is the only way back. It takes a lot of power to activate a portal. We can't all just hop through portals like Hermes can.”
“Who's Hermes?” Pit asked
“He's the god of travel and communication. He can pass through worlds easily. He has no problem unlike us other gods.” Palutena explained
“Oh. Well I really appreciate you porting me through twice a day Lady Palutena.” Pit said
Palutena smiled “You are welcome, Pit. I'm sorry boys but I have to figure out what is after Pit. I'm probably going to be busy with that for a few days. I'm sorry Pit.”
“It's okay, Lady Palutena.” Pit said.
The goddess of light turned towards the dark angel. “Thank you Pittoo for saving Pit.”
“Whatever” Dark Pit huffed.
With that the goddess of light faded in a spec of light.
Pit turned towards Pittoo. The dark angel was already half way down the hallway towards the exit.
“Pittoo! Wait!” Pit called out, chasing after him.
The dark angel didn't stop until they were in the shadows of the hallway. He turned to look at Pit whom had finally caught up.
“Stop fucking calling me that” Dark Pit snapped.
Pit stopped in his tracks, hurt from the use of his most hated word.
“What the fuck do you want?” Pittoo demanded.
Pit frowned and glanced down at the floor then back at the narrowed red eyes. “I just wanted to thank you. Y'know for saving me.”
Pittoo marched up to Pit, grabbing him by the arm and slamming him into the hallway. Pit let out a startled gasp followed by an “oof” as his body made contact with the wall. Pittoo smashed his lips against Pit's in a rough and hard kiss that hid the fear and relief that was put into it. His big hands grabbed Pit's red hot face, forcing their lips harder into each other. Dark Pit forced his way into the other's mouth, letting out a deep moan once he tasted Pit. One of Pittoo's hands wrapped around Pit's back, pressing his body into dark angel's. His hand fell to Pit's ass where he squeezed it causing the other to squeak. That made Pittoo want him even more. His other hand fell for Pit's other cheek where he gave another tight squeeze, causing the angel to gasp against Pittoo's lips. Pit muffled something against the crushing lips and tried to push him away, but the dark angel wasn't having it. He pressed Pit into him even more, slipped his hands down the angel's shorts to get a full feel of it. Pit gasped again as the dark angel grasped his soft skin. Pittoo moaned from the wondrous feel of the bare skin of his Pit despite the innocent angle pushing against him.
“Pittoo” Pit gasped between breaths.
The dark angel gave Pit's ass one last squeeze as he retracted himself from Pit. He figured it was time he left anyways. He was sick of the place.
He nipped Pit's bottom lip before pulling away and embracing the angel with an intense glare. His eyes narrowed at the wide blue pools that reflected his.
“Don't fucking do that shit again.” He snarled.
“D-do what?” Pit asked, dazed.
Pittoo didn't answer him. Instead he slammed him back into the wall and started walking away. Pit grunted but watched his dark half leave, confused and heated all in one. He left out a sigh and turned the other direction.
“Oh and one more thing.” Pittoo snapped over his shoulders.
Pit looked back to see his twin reflecting him. Dark Pit looked at him with scowling eyes, hiding his true emotions.
“You are not going back to that world without me. You got that?”
Pit reflected his doppelganger's expression. “You can't tell me what to do Pittoo. I can go anywhere without you. I can handle myself and we both know it!”
Dark Pit gave off a grave expression of amusement. “Oh really babe? Sure, you handled yourself with Hades and the other guys but this is different. I sensed it Pitty. I can detect the darkness unlike the goddess. I don't know where it was coming from but it drew up that tornado. That thing wants you pretty fucking badly and probably won't stop until it has you! I will be damned before I let it get you!”
Pittoo didn't care that he was shouting at him. The fact that something was after what was his, pissed him off. He wasn't going to have it. He was not going to let this darkness take Pit from him. He was the only dark aura that could claim Pit. Nothing else! He knew that he didn't need to babysit his innocent angel. Pit was a hero and he didn't need his hand held but this thing was different then Hades. Different but somehow the same. Pittoo couldn't decipher just what it was that made the two different but he knew there was something that desperately wanted him. For revenge or some sick pleasure, Pittoo couldn't decide but there was no way he was going to let it have him.
