Aw, thanks. Chapter 2: The Surprise of Time.
Phoenix stared up at the high, grassy mountain in front of them. They had gotten a taxi to the bottom and would climb up on foot. It was spring time, after all, and the mountains took on the wonderful nature look.
"I'd thought you would have gotten a liscense?" Iris asked Phoenix as she paid the fare. The taxi then drove down the rocky road leading to the mountain.
Phoenix noticed a red sports car that was parked at the bottom, which he found odd.
"Well, I never really found time to...I was..."
Phoenix stopped and Iris held his hand.
"I know...you were hurt by the whole events..."
Phoenix nodded and Iris put her head to his chest. Phoenix then kissed her on the head and they walked up the mountain together...
When they arrived, the spring air full of butterflies and flowers hit them. Iris gave a thankful look at the temple, which had hardly changed...
"Well, who do we have here, then!"
Phoenix saw the woman hobbling to them, wearing the nun clothes that Hazakurain Temple was famous for.
"Sister Bikini!" Spoke Iris as she realized who was speaking to them.
Bikini looked at Iris and gave a joyful laugh.
"Iris...my dear Iris, you're back! Thank the heavens!" Bikini spoke as she put her hands to her hips and smiled.
"Sister Bikini...I'm so happy to see you..." Iris burst into tears as Phoenix put his arm around her.
"There there, pet." Bikini stepped forward and hugged Iris, who stopped crying after a few moments.
Iris wiped her eyes, which were now red.
"And Mr Wright! So glad to see you again!" Chuckled Bikini as she looked at him.
"It's good to see you, Sister Bikini. How are you and everyone else? I heard Larr...I mean, Laurice left..." Phoenix tutted at the end of that last sentence, as though he had expected it.
"Yes, some model came, to pose in the mountains and she and Laurice are dating, so now they live in California."
Phoenix nodded."Great...another model."
He noticed Iris looking a little wistful as she spoke again.
"So...is Mystic Maya here?"
"My dear Iris, she just arrived only a few minutes ago!" Bikini spoke cheerfully.
"Would you like to see her?"
Phoenix nodded, but Iris tilted her head away.
"I'd like to catch up with everyone else from the temple...maybe some other time."
Phoenix nodded and kissed Iris goodbye as he walked into the main hall.
Phoenix looked around. The main hall hadn't hardly changed. Suddenly, a door burst through to the right and a teenage girl with her blonde hair in a ponytail appeared.
"Why do I always get lost?" She sighed , then she looked up to Phoenix and walked over with a jolly attitude.
"Oh, hi!! How are you, what's your name, when you were born, do you wanna get married?"
Phoenix suddenly stepped back at the last line.
"Umm...I-I have a girlfriend...thanks..."
The girl sighed as she put her hands to her hips. She was wearing a blue top with a black shirt and a red scarf. She was also wearing black high heel boots.
"Darn, well, you look too old for me anyway. But, I have to introduce myself. Lily, Lily Mikage. I'm 18 years old." She smiled at Phoenix, as though to expect the same.
"Phoenix Wright. Defense...A-Attorney..34 years old." He spoke.
"Right...hey, you're new around here, but can you help me find the rooms? I'm staying here, I'm a first year college student in art and I came here to get some feel for inspiration." She smiled cheerfully at this.
"Actually, I've been here before. I'd be glad to show you where the rooms are."
Lily stared curiously.
"Before? Wow, then, lead on!" She stepped behind Phoenix as he walked towards the rooms...
They found themselves in the corridors to the rooms, Lily ran to her door and unlocked it.
"Oh, thank you thank you thank you!" Lily spoke as she unlocked it and went in.
Phoenix stepped in after her, but Lily nearly closed the door, just enough for a gap for her head.
"Sorry, no peeking!" She winked.
Phoenix stepped out blushing as Lily stepped out a minute later.
"I had to do my hair." She brushed her ponytail and Phoenix could see it had been combed neatly.
Lily opened her door fully and Phoenix could see a dresser, a table with three chairs, a mirror and a wardrobe, a window with a view of Eagle River and there was a sketchbook on the bed with a picture of a butterfly.
Suddenly, the door leading to the rooms opened and an old man wearing a black suit, black shoes, a blue tie and a bald head entered. He was holding a wooden staff to walk. Behind him with an orange haired guy in a tracksuit with gloves who had a scar across his cheek. He wore brown cowboy boots.
"Ah, Lily, are you here?" The old man spoke.
Lily stepped into the corridor and ran to the old man.
"Grandpa! Grandpa, this is Phoenix Wright. He's a defense lawyer."
"Phoenix Wright, I've heard much about you, an excellant defense lawyer."
"T-Thank you sir." Phoenix spoke as he blushed a little.
The man behind him shuffled, but said nothing.
"This is my grandpa, Darius. The guy behind him is my friend, Aki. He's the silent type."
Aki nodded. Phoenix stared at the Grandpa.
"It's a pleasure to meet the pair of you." Phoenix spoke.
"Ah, you too, Phoenix Wright, but, lunch is about to begin, and forgive me, but I hate to miss out on the meal made by Miss Bikini. Truly superb."
Darius waved a goodbye as Lily and Aki walked out with him. Lily winked again. Phoenix was about to go look for Maya again, when suddenly...
Phoenix turned and saw her standing in the corridor...
End of Chapter 2!
Art by the talented Vickinator, thank you! ^_^
