She spends her time reconnecting with said familiar person.

I cannot take full credit for some of the quotes and lines written in this chapter since this is actually a song fic (albeit a very unconventional one). The italicized stanzas, some of Saïx's lines, and some of the white lady's quotes are lyrics from this song (in fact, the whole imagery and symbolism for this chapter was inspired by this song and its album cover): http://youtu.be/ESumfSkondA

And uhh...there’s literally no Aqua nor Xemnas in this chapter. Only Saïx is featured in this one. Yeah, I don’t know how he snuck in there LOL. But if you squint very hard, you can find Aqua and Xemmy in there. In fact, this chapter is littered with allusions, metaphors, symbolism, and—dun dun duuun—FORESHADOWING! Aaaand all that other literary techniques jazz. So have some fun doing some divination with the Luna Diviner while you’re at it.
