The sickening smell of burning flesh and the added weight of her blade had the girl squeeze her eyes shut in despair. It was almost like Rago didn't even see what was right in front of him. Capella could only imagine what would have happened if the other evaded her attack, however the thought didn't manage to fully make itself realized as she soon found herself looking down at the man's hat. A part of her wanted to take the accessory for herself, as a parting gift of sorts, but another part of her wanted to forget this whole event even happened.
Everything seemed to move in slow motion at that point, Heartless retreating as if they did nothing wrong; without their leader, they probably lost the will to do anything for themselves. Well, it didn't matter anymore. She should probably find Rago's body to make sure he's actually done for. Unfortunately, this thought was pushed to the back of her mind as both the woman and child she's tasked to protect threw themselves at the star child, said girl sending away Halcyon before she accidentally hurt the two. Small, trembling hands found their way around the two, clutching gently onto them to get a better footing.
"Y-You're welcome...You're welcome...I'm g-glad I could help..." Capella rasped with a small smile, voice completely shot from all the yelling.
Once the woman, Maryam was her name, calmed down, Capella was given a much proper thank you before her attention moved to a man struggling to get back to his feet. Capella simply kept her distance, reaching down to collect the wide rimmed hat before holding it against her chest. She needed to move on after finding Rago, taking up more time here would only just make her next journey all the harder. Unfortunately, the people of Bethlehem weren't going to let her off as easily as she thought.
"O-Oh, um, you really don't hav--" Never getting the chance to finish, Capella whisked away against her will, and treated graciously for her hard work.
The people of Bethlehem were far too nice. Even though they had just been attack and lost most of what they grew accustomed to, they still managed to pull a celebration that Capella didn't have the heart to walk away from. At least she was able to catch up with Amalthea in the midst of it. If Rago was really still out there, he'd be gone by then, so Capella made the decision to avoid wasting more time looking for him and instead head to her next destination;
PS: After you've saved Bethlehem, go to the western side of a Peninsula called Arabia, and save a city called Mecca from an invading army calling themselves the Kingdom of Axum. Do not let a single Axumite - Or their own legions of Heartless - get within 50 miles of the city. Another birth of immense importance is to occur there.
"The Gummi Ship is still back at Jerusalem." The Moogle mused, making Capella sigh in slight defeat. She couldn't possibly ask the people of Bethlehem for a ride, not when they needed to be together at this point. Plus, it wouldn't be too hard to fly back. This time, using his finger to draw the Corvus glyph she needed, Capella was in the skies in no time, Amalthea clutched tightly in her free arm.
It was smooth sailing for a little bit before Capella found herself hit with a wave of dizziness.
"Capella?" At that instant, the glyph on her back crumbled and her vision blurred. Did she push herself too much? Her mind was still running, but her body just couldn't keep up it seemed. Unable to lower herself before her wings disappeared, Capella felt herself plummeting towards the ground, Amalthea shouting her name, and consciousness fading in the process. However, just before she was completely out for the count, steel eyes caught the sight of a figure moving towards Bethlehem...
