The next morning Willow happily skipped into the bridge, and glanced around the room. Buffy sat at the ships contols, head hanging over the back of the set, softly snoring with a small amout of drool on her cheek.

Donald was laying across one of the chairs, snoring as he breathed in, and quacking as he breathed out. Willow grinned, and shook her head when her gaze turned to Goofy. He was laying in a chair with his feet sticking up in the air, and his head nearly touching the floor, as he snored away.

Faith was the only one who was awake, and quietly sharpning her spear -seeing as the keyblade hadn't gone dull yet. She looked up and smirked when she saw Tara step in the room beside Willow.

"Well, I know you had a good night." Faith said amused. "Buffy didn't sleep all that much. She'd just start dozing, and you'd start the next round."

Tara blushed bright red, but had a mile-wide smile on her face, and shrugged. "Sorry..." she said and shook her head. "No, I'm not sorry, so she'll just have to deal with it."

Faith smirked. "Well, we she's rested up, you'll have to deal with hearing us all night...although, you'll probably drown us out!"

"Willow shrugged. "And it wasn't a good night, it was a great night!" she said and kissed Tara's cheek.

"I'm glad you had your fun, but now it's time to get going." Faith said standing and grinned, reminding Willow of Buffy's shark-like grin. "Run! Willow and Tara are having sex again!" she shouted.

Donald rolled off the chair just as Goofy fell over on the floor, both looking around wildly ready to bolt. Buffy's eyes snapped open as she stood, and cursed as her knee hit the controls. Turning she saw Willow and Tara both grinning, and Faith smirking, she glared at Faith.

"That wasn't funny!" Buffy griped and sat down wiping the drool from her cheek, and starting the engine.

Tara giggled sitting down in a comfortable blue chair, and pulled Willow into her lap. "Actually, yes it was." Tara said as the ship entered warp drive heading for Traverse Town.

With the ship in warp there were no attacks from Heartless ships, and within twenty minutes the ship was hovering near Traverse Town. The group teleported down into the First District where Buffy found herself in a bone-crushing hug from her twin.

"Cool, you're back. I'm happy to see you again! Is something worng?" Buffy's twin asked releasing Buffy, and hugging everyone else.

"No, nothing's wrong." Faith said rubbing her now sore ribs.

"We just need to speak with Clay, is she around?" Willow asked.

Buffy's twin nodded. "Yeah, she's in the Secret Waterway, I was just going there. Come on."

The twin lead the group into the Second District, and into the Alleyway at the back of the inn. At the end of the alley was a small iron gate that rose into the air when the twin touched a certain brick, and and lowered when the group passed through. Near the back of the room the group saw Clay practicing with her Gunblade, as Willow and Faith's twin watched.

Willow's twin happily bounced their way, and latched on to Willow giving her a hug, before doing the same with the others. "Good to see you again. Anything wrong? Don't tell me you've run into more trouble than you can handle. Maybe we should come with you, I haven't been on an adventure in a while, and I know Tara could use the work out."

"No, no, everything's fine. We just wanted to talk with Tara... umm, Clay." Tara said, and shook her head.

Hearing this Clay turned, and cocked her head to the left. "What's up? Did you find any keyholes?"

"Yeah." Buffy nodded.

"The Keyblade automatically locked the ones we've found." Tara said, then frowned thinking about something.

"Good." Faith's twin said wrapping her arm around Buffy's twin.

"What are these keyholes, anyway?" Tara asked confused.

Clay motioned for the group to sit down on the ground, once everyone was somewhat comfortable she took her seat beside Willow's twin.

"Every world amoung the stars has a Keyhole, and each one leads to the heart of that world. Even this town has one, and that's what the Heartless are after."

"What do you mean?" Willow asked, now confused.

"It was in D'Hoffryn's report." Willow's twin said glancing at the girls.

Clay sighed not knowing what kind of reaction she'd get, but decided they had to know what the Heartless could do. "The Heartless enter through the Keyhole, and do something to the world's core. Just what they do, is something we don't know."

"And what happens to the world?" Donald asked as a worried look crossed his face.

Clay stared at the ground, as the other twins glanced around. Seeing as no one wanted to speak, Willow's twin sighed.

"In the disappeares."

"What!" The group shouted causing the twins to flinch as their combined voices echoed in the waterway.

"Disappeares? You mean the whole world get destroyed?" Buffy asked surprised. "You can't be serious!"

"Yes we're dead serious," Clay nodded. "and that's why your Keyblades are so important."

"The Keyblades lock the Keyholes, and in doing so keeps the Heartless out, right?" Willow said getting a nod from Clay.

Buffy's twin looked up hopefully. "Please, you gotta lock the Keyholes, and save the worlds. Don't let 'em end up like our world."

"You're the only ones who can do it." Faith's twin said.

"Only us?" Faith asked staring into her twins eyes, and seeing only the truth.

"Yes, anyway, seeing other worlds would probably serve you well." Clay said and smiled a little.

"Yeah!" Donald said giving the girls one of his duck-smiles.

Goofy grinned. "Plus we gotta find King Mickey."

"Okay, we won't let you down." Tara said as Willow, Buffy, and Faith nodded.

"Oh! Goofy, show them the block." Willow said and watched Goofy hand Clay the gummi block. "We've never seen one like it...I mean sure we haven't seen many of them, but still, the ones we have seen don't look like this one. Do you know what it's used for?"

Clay took the block and rolled it in the palm of her hand, as the twins looked at it over her shoulder. Shaking her head she looked up, "Sorry, but I don't know either."

"Hey! Ask Giles, he should know." Buffy's twin said as Clay handed the block back to Goofy and stood.

When the group stood, Clay reached into her pocket and took out a yellow gem. "Here, take this with you." She said handing the stone to Tara. "It holds a mysterious power, but I've been carrying it for luck."

"How do you use it?" Tara asked her twin, feeling the power in the stone.

"I don't know, but I want you to have it... It may be useful to you."

"Thank you." Tara said, and surprised her twin with a gentle hug.

"Y-You're w-welcome." Clay said and glared at the giggling twins. "Buffy, make sure they get to Giles, okay?"

"Sure boss." Buffy smirked and kissed Faith's twin. "Be back in a bit, love."

Buffy's twin lead the group back to the First District to Giles' Accessory Shop, and smiled slapping Buffy on her ass, before bolting back the way she came. Buffy stood staring wide-eyed as her twin disappeared around the corner, and shook her head.

"Me thinks, that girl needs help." Buffy said causing Faith to laugh.

"I think you both do!" Faith said entering the shop.

"Hello there, it's good to see you again. May I help you with something?" Giles asked and leaned against the counter.

"Well, we're wonder if you knew what this is?" Goofy spoke handing Giles the gummi.

"You're kiddin' me! You're flyin' a gummi ship, and you don't know nothin' about navigation gummis? What are you, a bunch of pinheads? Interspace ain't no playground!" Giles said causing the group to take a step back.

If one thing was for sure, this Giles wasn't anything like the Giles from the girls' world.

"Look buster!" Willow growled. There's a lot we don't know about this place! So what! We have to use the king's gummi ship to go to other worlds. We don't have a choice."

Giles looked at Willow as a small grin showed. "Whoa, easy there. I didn't know, so no hard feelings, all right? Anyway, I guess I could lend y'all a hand."

"Thank you." Tara said rubbing the small of Willow's back.

"Okay, this is a navigation gummi, and with these, you can go to new places. Do you want this on your ship?"

The group nodded. "Yeah, sure." Donald said.

"Okay then, I'll install it for you. But I need you to do something for me."

"What is it?" Faith asked watching Giles reach behind the counter.

"I need you to deliver this book for me. It's really old, when the guy brought it in, it was practically falling apart. Too beat up to restore it to the way it was. But overall, I did a decent job puttin' it back together. Anyway, you mind deliverin' it for me? It's the old house past the Third District, just look for a big fire sign."

"Sure, we don't mind." Buffy said taking the book, and felt the floor shake as a bell rung.

"What the hell was that?" Faith asked glancing around the room.

"Hmm? That's odd, the bell at the gizmo shop is ringing. If you like you can check it out, its at the back of the Second District, but deliver that book first, please." Giles said walking behind the counter. "Oh, when you're done, stop by the house in the Third's the one by the exit leading to the Second District, that's where I'll be."

"Okay, see ya then." Willow said as she and the others stepped outside and headed for the Third District.
