Aqua, the only student of Master Eraqus to be recognized as a Keyblade Master, sat within the immense lobby of the Shinra Company. She watched silently as employees walked past her on their way to accomplish some task unknown to her. With a soft sigh, she found herself gazing thoughtfully at a potted plant standing next to her seat. Hardly a moment had passed before Aqua heard a small ding, followed by footsteps running to, and then down, one of the great staircases on either side of the lobby. Aqua turned to look, and saw none other than SOLDIER First Class Zack Fair, jogging down the stairs, headed towards her.
