Think of me
Think of me fondly when we've said goodbye
Once in a while, please promise me you'll try
When you find that once again you long to take your heart back and be free...
From above the stage, a cloaked figure with claws loosened a few ropes to make a piece of scenery fall, and to knock Carlotta over, pinning her to the stage. And the cloaked figure made his escape by vanishing in thin air.
This accident occured when Marie, Jack's youngest daughter came to the pera house with a guest by the name of LDK Sparda, a human boy.
''The opera house is a dear landmark here in Halloween Town, Monsieur Sparda,'' Marie told the young teenage boy. ''We take very talented people here to participate in many operas such as...'' But she got interrupted when Sparda noticed the accident. ''Holly crap!''
''I hate you,'' scwermed Carlotta like a little girl. ''Lift it up! You assholes!''
Marie got surprised too, but worried. ''He's here. Drago, the Fire Chii Demon.'' she said to Sparda. ''Monsieur Sparda, I think you have to leave now,''
''So soon? I came here to support an old friend of mine, Tifa.''
''I know Monsieur Sparda but, not now, maybe tonight, goodbye'' she said, pushing LDK Sparda to the exit and closing the doors beind her.
''Signora, are you alright?'' said Kye very worried, he then shouted to the upper level of the stage, were the pieces of scenery were kept. ''Leon, for God's sake, brother, what is going on up there?''
He got his answer by his other older brother, Leon Skellington. ''Please Kye don't look at me. As Ra's my judge, I wasn't at my post. Please brother, there's no one there.''
But then he thought of someway to scare his little brother. ''Or if there is, well then... it must be a demon.'' he said sarcasticaly while laughing a little bit evil-like.
''Signora, these things do happen.'' Monsieur Andre said to Carlotta, so she could calm herself, aparantly, it didn't work.
''For the past three years, 'these things do happen.' And did you stop them from happening? No!'' Carlotta said to Jack, even pissed than before. And then she directly spoke angrily to
Andre and Firmin.
''And you two! You are as bad as him! 'These things do happen.' UGH! Until you stop these things from happening, this thing does not happen! Ubaldo! Andiamo! Bring my doggy and my boxy!'' she shouted angrily when she went to the back entrance of the theater.
''Amateurs.'' Jonathan said under his breath, chuckling a bit from that accident.
''Gentlemen, good luck. If you need me, I shall be in Amos.'' Jack spoke, before leaving the theater. Monsieur Andre and Monsieur Firmin were now feeling a bit guilty for what happened before, Emily aproached them, handling towards them a letter.
''I have a message sir, from the fire demon.''
''Oh, God in heaven, you're all obsessed.'' said Andre a bit pissed of like Carlotta.
''He welcomes you to his opera house.''
'' 'His' opera house?'' said Firmin
''And commands that you continue to leave box five empty for his use and reminds you that his salary is due.''
''My father used to give him 20,000 francs a month.''
''Perhaps you can afford more with my brother as your patron?''
''Madame, I had hoped to make that announcement public tonight when the Vicomte was to join us for the gala. But obviously, (rips the note in two)we shall now have to cancel as it appears we have lost our star! A full house, Andre! We shall have to refund a full house!''
''Tifa, the Strange could sing it, Sir.''
''What, a chorus girl?'' Andre spoke, having a bit of hope in his voice.
''Let her sing for you monsieur. She has been well taught.''
Emily signaled Tifa to come forth to the stage, Tifa was a little worried that her singing voice will be terrible.
''Andre, this is doing nothing for my nerves.''
''Oh, but she's very pretty.''
Think of me
Think of me fondly when we've said goodbye
Once in a while, please promise me you'll try.
When you find
That once again you long to take your heart back and be free,
If you ever find a moment spare a thought for me.
Then the whole area is transforming to the Gala. Tifa is revealed in a white dress facing a huge crowd, she didn't expect many creatures coming that opening night, but she did her part fantasticaly.
We never said our love was evergreen
Or as unchanging as the sea.
But if you can still remember
Stop and think of me.
Think of all the things we've shared and seen,
Don't think about the way things might've been.
Think of me,
Think of me waking, silent and resigned.
Trying too hard to put you from my mind.
Recall those days, look back on all those times,
Think of the things we'll never do.
There will never be a day when I won't think of you!
Beneath the stage of the opera house, were few secret chambers were hidden, was the cloaked figure from before, he heard Tifa's voice. Drago was amazed. But back at the Gala, in box five, James also heard her sing, because he was watching the gala with LDK Sparda. He fell inlove with her, not by her singing, but of her beauty and thought.
Can it be?
Can it be Christine?
''Bravo!'' He applauded for Tifa, and left his seat, and went to walk around the Opera House.
Long ago, it seems so long ago,
How young and innocent we were!
She may not remember me,
But I remember her.
(Back at the stage)
Flowers fade, The fruits of summer fade,
They have their seasons so do we.
But please promise me that sometimes
You will think...
