Chapter 1: Out of the mirror
Noctis was asleep when Ardyn stood in front of his room. Ardyn starts casting a spell, “Oh, ripening fruit let time itself be cleft. By my name Ardyn Lucis Caelum, the fates of the Astral has been broken with my command.” The spell was interrupted by Ignis and Galdio, who bursted into the room.
“Noct you must leave this instant!” Ignis said as he lifted Noctis from his bad.
“We need to get you out of here” Gladio said picking up a mirror at the same time.
Noctis activated the mirror and the two bodyguards sent him through the portal. At the same time Prompto is messing around with his camera, taking pictures on the way to to school. His camera held a mirror charm but due to his excitement he didn't notice that the mirror charm fall off the camera and just continued walking.At this moment Noctis comes out of that charm. When Prompto finally notices the charm gone, he was putting the lens cap on. He quickly turned back retraces his steps to see if he can find it. As he rounded the corner, he sees Noctis holding his mirror charm.
“Hey you! Is this yours?”
“Yes but you know little boy you have to be polite to people.” Prompto repermanted the kid a little but his cuteness stopped him from being to firm with him.
Before he could get the charm back Prompto heard his school warning bell ring. He quickly ran off towards the school, yelling he's going to be late to school, leaving a stunned Noctis behind. Luckily for Prompto, he made it to school on time. After the eventful morning the rest of the school day went by fast and soon Prompto was going to his council meeting. During the meeting Prompto talked to Cindy, who was the President of the council. They discussed a few things, when Prompto had a feeling that he was forgetting something. He pounder what he could have forgotten. Once he realises it the charm he runs out of the school and back to the place where he saw the kid before. To his surprise the kid was still there, but now he was petting a cat. When Noctis noticed Prompto he stands up and walked closer to him.
“I wanted to return this to you but you ran off” he stated as he held out the charm.
“And you waited here all day just to return it?” Prompto asked not believing that a kid would just wait there all day.
“Yes what else was I supposed to do? I thought that if I stay here the blond will eventually come back here.”
“My name is Prompto Argentum.”
“I'm Noctis Lucis Caelum.” Noctis announced proudly.
“So Noct, where are your parents or guardian? Do you need me to help you get back home?”
“That won't be necessary I'm waiting for specs to contact me. And I came through that mirror” He stated.
“Do you not know what that mirror is?”
“Of course I do, this mirror has been passed down in my family for a long long time.” Prompto responded and before he walked off he realized the kid should be standing there alone. So he turned back to the kid and asked, “Do you want to wait at my house? It a lot safer than staying here.”
Noctis just nodded and followed Prompto to his house. Once they made it to the house, Prompto figured that Noctis might be hungry. Prompto starts to mix the ingredients to make something simple when Noctis sneaked up behind him and startled him by saying, “No carrots!” This caused to jump up and dump the ingredients on them.After a quick bath both were clean again and Prompto remade the the food. As for Noctis request there wasn't any carrots in the meal.
“This is delicious, it almost as good as iggy’s!” Noctis exclaimed.
“I'm glad you're enjoying it.”
“What about other people?”
“My parents always work out of town. But uncle cor comes and checks on me during the weekends and I have Umbra and Pyra my two dogs.” Prompto stated sadly.
“That must be lonely.”
“It not so bad.”
“Do you mind if I stay the night if specs doesn't contact me?”
“I'm sorry for the truble. You will be compensated for it.”
Prompto just smiles, petting Noctis hair, and saying “You're just a kid, it not something you should be working worrying about. Why don't you just play or watch some t.v. as I clean up.”
Noctis ended up playing Justice Monsters V. Prompto just watched as Noctis enjoyed himself playing the game as he finished cleaning. Once everything was clean it was time for bed. To be nice Prompto gave Noctis his bad and he laid a sleeping bag next to the bad. Before he turned off the light, Noctis was already out cold. Soon after the light were turned off and Prompto fell asleep, Noctis started growing into a teenager. As he grew he slipped of the bed and ended sleeping on the sleeping bag with Prompto. Prompto wakes up feeling something is off. As he opens his eyes he sees another teenager in his bed and freaks out. His freak out wakes Noctis up, who is confused about what's going on.
“Why are you screaming this early in the morning?”
“Wh...what are you doing in my bad?” Prompto startered.
“You're the one who let me sleep in your bad.” Noctis stated crossing his arms and pouting like a kid.
“Wait a second Noct?” Prompto asked not believing it the same kid from last night.
“You can't be Noctis.”
“Of course I'm Noctis!” He exclaimed not understanding why Prompto is freaking out.
Before Prompto could say anything his charm started to glow. In a few seconds someone was coming out of the mirror, freaking Prompto out even more.
“I apologize for the intrusion. My name is Ignis Scientia and I am his highness advisor. It seems his highness Ardyn was telling the truth about Noct ageing.”
“Specs what's going on?”
“His highness Ardyn has cast one of the forbidden aging spells on you, which also stops you from using your magic. Luckily for you you were able to duge most of the spell but it seems that in darkness the effects of the spell are activated.” Ignis explained.
“How is this possible!” Prompto yells at Noctis.
“Careful now Noct is still a prince from the kingdom called Insomnia. Though it seems that the Astrals have a sick sense of humor sending his highness here.”
“What do you mean?” Prompto asked still confused.
“This mirror is a symbol for the royal family but it seems that this specific one belongs to the Argentum family whose last hire betrayed the kingdom and then disappeared without a trace a long time ago. Which means that you are a descendent of a traitor. “ Ignis explained with a glare.
“I don't know if I can handle any other news.” Prompto said as he flopped into a chair.
“How do you know this?” Noctis asked curiously.
“I've over heard my uncle and Gladios dad talking about it.”
“So Iggy how are we going to get me back to normal?”
“We have two options. One is wait here until we can get Ardyn to give up the formula of the spell or the second option which is a kiss from a virgin.”
“Are you going to do it?” Noctis asked Prompto.
“M-m-m-me?” Prompto statured.
“Are you not a virgin?” Ignis asked.
“I am.” He said with a blush
“Will you do it Prompto?” Noctis asked innocently.
Prompto blushed and pushed Noctis away. Freaking out that if he dose it it will be his first kiss.
Chapter 2: A day with Noct
Prompto spends the day with big noct.
I really excited for this fic so I go ch 2 done the same day.
Hope you like it!
Prompto is still freaking out about his first kiss. Noctis is just looking at him confused, as to why he's freaking out about a kiss. Ignis is just sending a glare his way because to him a descendent of a traitor would definitely refuse to help the prince.
“Can’t you guys find someone else?” Prompto asked miserably.
“It would seem that his highness has chosen you for that task, you should be honoured to be chosen. But what do I exact from a decedent of a traitor.” Ignis said still glaring at Prompto
“You have to understand that I'm saving myself for my soulmate.”
“Soulmate? Can I be your soulmate?” Noctis asked.
“Do you even know what that means?”
“Not really.” Noctis admitted.
“I don't think I can handle anything else, can you guys just leave and leave me out of this whole mess?”
With a frown Noctis nods and picks up the mirror. Before he uses his magic he looks at Prompto and said, “I'll come visit you.”
“Please don't.” Prompto whined.
“Hey don't be rude! I want to come back.”
“Noct I do believe it we have overstayed our welcome and should return.” Ignis says.
Noctis sighs and tries to use magic on the mirror but no matter what he does he can't go through. Prompto just sits there watching and hoping that they would leave soon so that his life can return to normal. Slightly upset that he can't go through the mirror, Noctis mutters a spell which double the size of the dogs.
“It would seem you have no control over your magic.” Ignis said with a sigh and then looked and Prompto and continued saying, “If someone would have just consented to a simple kiss this situation would have been avoided.”
Prompto just shakes his head no. Ignis just glares at Prompto, which terrifies him but he still stands his ground. Ignis finally sighs and grabs the mirror from Noctis.
“It would seem I must return alone and until this matter is resolved Prince Noctis will remain here. I will try to get more information out of his highness Ardyn.“ he says to Prompto as he pushes Noctis in his direction.
Prompto was about to protest and say he doesn't agree with this arrangement but the glare stopped him from talking.
“And Noct, due avoid the darkness,as it is your number one enemy.” Ignis said and then he casted the spell and went through the mirror.
“What about the dogs?” Prompto asked defeated.
“Well specs put a spell on it so that no one will see.” Noctis stated.
“When he was talking he casted a spell” Noctis stated like it was the most obvious thing.
“I need to relax, I think I'll take a bath.”
“No way in hell!” Prompto exclaimed as he stormed off towards the bathroom.
Noctis just looked confused but decided not to bother him. Instead he ended up playing Justice Monsters V again. When Prompto came out of the bathroom he felt much better and was ready to take on all the changes in his life. When he noticed that Noctis was enjoying the game he decided to take him to the arcade.
“You want to go to play other games?”
“Sure why not.” Noctis said with a shrug.
“Well shower and get dressed and we can go.”
Noctis showed his displeasure in being told what to do, but after some trial and error he accomplished the task given to him. Now that he was ready Noctis was excited to see new games and practically drag Prompto out of the house. As they left Prompto took a look at his dogs, who were still two times their size.
“I want you to change them back as soon as you are able to.”
“Since I'm the one who made them bigger it won't be a problem and for now no one else can see them. Unless you want to give me the kiss now?”
“Not happening.” Prompto said putting his foot down.
Prompto lead them through the streets until they arrived at the arcade. At first everything went well, Noctis got immersed in one of the games, Prompto even joined in. It wasn't until Noctis attention was drawn to another game that the problem started. Noctis finished the game they were playing and then made his way to the other game. Instead of waiting for the other players to finish the game, Noctis just shoved them out of the way and continued playing for them. Prompto instantly jumped into action pulling him away from the game and at the same time apologized to the ones Noctis offended by giving the coins necessary to replay the game. Then embarrassed he proceeded to drag Noctis out of the arcade. As they continued walking Prompto noticed that Noctis wasn't behind him anymore. But before he could start freaking out about losing Noctis, Promptos luck continued to decrease as he ran into a guy that used to hit on him before he transferred schools.
“Well look who we have here.” The guy stated.
“Loqi what do you want?” Prompto asked as he backed away from him.
“You always acted like you were to good for me. Now look at you, you still don't have anyone.”
“Just go away Loqi.”
Before Loqi could respond to him Noctis came up behind prompto and said, “I finally found you Prompto.” When Noctis finally got to look at Prompt face he frowned and asked, “Are you ok Prompto?”
“I'm fine but where have you gone?” Prompto asked still sounding upset.
“I saw a machine with this in it and I wanted to try getting one.” Then looking at Prompto face again he said, “Here it for you.” Then he shoved the chocobo in Promptos hands.
“Thanks.” Prompto said with a smile.
With seeing that Loqi stormed of angrily. Prompto having enough of this day decided it was time to go home. Without saying anything Prompto started to drag Noctis back to his home still hugging the plush. Once at home Prompto just flopped on the couch.
“So Noct why did you come out of my charm aren't there any other portals?” Prompto asked looking at the ceiling.
“I was think I need a safe place to go and I ended up here.”
“You know if you could use magic you could go through the mirror and visit Insomnia.”
“I don't want to go there. I just want to my life to go back to normal.” Prompto stated, but was also shocked that talking about magic isn't freaking him out anymore.
As he was looking up at the ceiling lost in thought, he tried to get into Noctis shoes to see how he would feel about the situation. With those thoughts Prompto came to the realization that it not fair to Noctis who has no choice in him growing older. With the that he decided that one kiss wouldn't hurt.
“Hey Noct.” Prompto said sitting up.
“Close your eyes.”
Noctis did as he was told but before he kissed him Ignis showed up out of the mirror and said, “A kiss on the cheek would suffice.”
With a blush Prompto kissed Noctis on the cheek and with a blinding light he turned back to the kid he was before.
“Well not there is no doubt in my mind that you and big Noct are one and the same.”
“Noct I think it is time for us to go.”
Noctis just nodded and went to pick up the mirror.
“Noct go and get the spell lifted but remember that if Ardyn does anything else I'll be here for you.”
“Thanks.” Noctis said with a big smile on his face.
The two used the magic and went through the mirror. When the two arrived in Insomnia they found out that Ardyn has disappeared.
Chapter 3: Noct is back
Noct is back and Ardyn makes an appearance.
This ch took me a lot longer then expected but here it is.
And a big thanks goes to my best friend Kaoru_chibimaster for helping me write Cindy's dialing dialong for this ch.
Hope you enjoy the ch!
After the weekend Prompto had he was ready to have his life return to normal. But no matter what he did getting ready for school, he kept thinking back to how he spent his weekend with Noctis. Picking up his camera and the charm he made his way to school. Once in school Cindy and Prompto started a survey to see what they should get one of their teachers, who was having a baby.
“Alright now, any more suggestions?”
“How about we do some odd jobs for her? She would defiantly appreciate the effort.” Prompto suggested.
No one in the class like the suggestion of doing extra jobs for someone else.
“That's a fine idea there Prompto! Alright now, why don't we take a vote?”
Prompto started to list of the few ideas they had listed on the board and count the votes. When he got to his idea he expected to be the only one to vote but to his surprise there were others including Cindy. Even though the other options had more votes Prompto was happy that his idea was supported. Once everything has been decided class started up.
Later that day Prompto was out on the field taking pictures of the volleyball practice for his yearbook class. He was so immersed in taking he wasn't paying attention and a volleyball hit him on the head.
“Prompto!” Cindy yelled immediately stopping the practices.
Prompto being to disoriented to reply, but he felt someone helping him up and to the nurse's offices. Once at the nurse's offices, Cindy helped Prompto up on the bed. Then she placed his camera on the table near by.
"Why don't you go on 'n' rest, Prompto." Cindy said.
“Cindy I'm fine. Plus I can't miss my next class.” Prompto tried to reason with her
"Well alright then. But jus' promise you'll take it easy." Cindy agreed even thought she was still worried about him.
“I promise.” Prompto said. At the same time he noticed that his charm started to glow. Grabbing his camera he made his way out of the offices, as he was leaving he yelled, “Thanks for everything Cindy, I’ll be heading to class now.”
Once outside he turned the corner just in time for Noctis to come out of the mirror.
“Noct you need to be more careful! Someone could have seen you.” he scolded
“Sorry.” Noctis said simply as if that would solve everything.
“I can't be to mad, since I invited you to come back,” Prompto side with a sigh.
"Oh Prompto! What're you doin' here? I thought'chu were headin' off to class?"
“I was but my brother showed up.”
"Well ain't you just adorable?" Cindy saidn
“I am not adorable.” Noctis grumbled angrily and crossed his hands against his chest, but to everyone else he just looked like he was pouting.
“Noct don't be rude. Why don't you just wait in here for me to get out of class.” Prompto said as he placed Noctis in a room. He then turned to Cindy and said, “We should get to class now. We shouldn't be late.”
“Well alright.” Cindy said, unsure that they should leave him there.
The two headed to get there stuff from the last class and then proceeded to their next class.
The entire class Prompto felt like something was off, but no matter what he couldn't figure out what it was. It became apparent the second older Noctis showed up and hugged Prompto.
“You took too long Prompto.” Noctis simply stated. Before Prompto could respond to that he was being dragged out of the classroom by Noctis who said, “Let's go.”
On the way to the house Prompto asked, “Hey Noct, how did you grow up?”
“It turns out the room you put me in was pitch dark.”
“That's not what what I meant. Didn't you have the spell broken when you went back?”
“It didn't happen. Ardyn disappeared before we could get him to talk. So for my safety I came here. Also I'm hungry.”
“Of course you are.”
“Just remember no carrots.”
Once home Prompto went straight for the kitchen to make them something to eat. As he was waiting Noctis decided to play one of the games Prompto had.
“Here. I'm going to take a shower while you eat.”
Noctis just hummed in pleasure as he started to eat. Prompto decided that he would take quick shower so that Noctis doesn't burst into his room when he's changing. After the shower Prompto was about to get dressed when his charm started to glow. The glow was different from the one Ignis and Noctis gave off and Prompto wandered who was coming through the mirror this time.Out of the mirror came out a figure with red-violet hair and amber eyes.
Chapter 4: Ardyns new goal
Ardyn has arrived and is making Prompto life even harder
Since i don't like cliffhangers I wanted to write this ch as soon as possibe.
Hope you like it!
The only thought going through Prompto’s head was why is there another guy coming through his charm. But one thing was for sure, he definitely didn't trust this guy.
“Dear boy, would you tell me where he is?” Was the first thing the stranger asked. Before Prompto could say anything the stranger started to search the room yelling, “Noctis where are? Stop hiding and show yourself.”
“He's not going to be in there!” Prompto exclaimed as the stranger was opening random small drawers.
“How could you leave me behind!” Demanded a small figure that just came out of the charm.
“You're so small and you have wings too. ” Prompto stated in surprise.
The tiny fairy ignored Prompto and flew to the stranger who was still searching for Noctis.
“Ardyn you're not going to find hem like that. You should ask the strange boy over there where the prince is.” The fairy simply stated.
The second Prompto heard the name he realized who was standing in front of him. This man was the one who cast a spell on Noctis and is now trying to finish the job.
“Alright boy why don't you tell me where Noct is?”
“He's not here so you should just leave.” Prompto said and he was proud of himself for not stuttering as he said that.
“This is the first time someone dared to speak to me so boldly. I’m really impressed boy. “
“My name is Prompto.” He said losing some of his confidence.
“Well Prompto what would you say to coming with me and being one of my favorites?” Ardyn asked sweetly, completely forgetting about his other task.
“May I remind you that you came here to find the prince.” The fairy stated.
“No way I…” Prompto started to say but was interrupted by Noctis, who came in asking, “Hey Prompto you okay?”
Without thinking Prompto pushed Noctis outside the door and Ardyn out of the way, hoping that Ardyn didn't see Noctis.
Noctis was staring at the closed door in confusions, trying to figure out if who he saw in the other room was really Ardyn. At the same time inside the room Ardyn couldn't believe how Prompto was treating him.
“Feisty aren't we? You're making yourself very irresistible young Prompto.”
“I want nothing to do with you!” Prompto said moving away from him.
“It would seem that fate wanted us to meet.”
Prompto wanted to tell him to stay away but again was interrupted by Noctis, who bursted into to room stating, “Prompto is my soulmate!”
The statement started a staring contrast between the two, until Noctis broke it by asking, “Tell me! How did you go through that mirror it should have been sealed after I went through?”
“It a secret.” Ardyn teased.
“Noct you need to get out of here as fast as you can!” Prompto whispered as he move to block Noctis with his own body .
“Now my dear don't be shy, I have decide that you'll be my number one.” Ardyn said simply as he completely ignored Noctis.
Noctis pushed Ardyn away from them and pulling Prompto into a hug saying, “Prompto is mine so back off.”
“Back off boy you don't know what you're interfering with.”
“You idiot that boy is the prince! Your spell caused this!” The fairy spoke up.
“Nonsense, Noct would by way older than this.”
“That's because it didn't work.” Noctis inputted angrily.
“That's impossible! I'm a genius.”
Noctis sighed before saying, “Your last genius plan ended up with you covered in cactuar spikes.”
“Only father and Noct would know something so embarrassing. I guess I'm left with no choices but to believe you.”
“Now that we have cleared up, I want you to remove this spell!”
“Now, now is that anyway to talk to your bother?”
Prompto finally head enough of their bickering and forcibly pushed them apart. “Ardyn please leave.” Prompto said feeling drained.
“As you wish my dear but I will be back for you, once I have everything prepared.” Ardyn said as he left out the window with the fairy.
“What just happen? I thought he was after you.” Prompto asked in confusions.
“It would seem be found a new goal and forgot about everything else.”
“That wasn't a joke?” Prompto asked now freaking out.
“He would not joke about something like this.”
Prompto just looked at Noctis and noticed the worried look in his eyes. But before he could say anything Noctis asked, “Will you kiss me? I want to go back to normal.”
With a smile Prompto replied, “Sure.”
Prompto went for the kiss on the cheek. For a second he was worried that the kiss might not work anymore. But within seconds he was back to his kid self.
“Hey Prom! Why don't we stay up all night and play video games?”
The next day Prompto was running to school, hoping not to be late. Luckily for him he made it just in time. He spent the whole day think about what Ardyn and Noctis said to each other. The more he thought about them the more confused he was about his feelings. So when Noctis came to pick him up from school, Prompto just wanted to be alone to think more. With that Prompto ran off without saying anything, leaving a confused Noctis alone in the school. Prompto knew that he was acting childish but he was unsure of his feeling and knew that Noctis would just make him more confused. Unfortunately Prompto wasn't paying attention to his surrounding and was hit with a sleeping spell, giving Ardyn the chance to kidnap him.
Back at the school Noctis was upset with how Prompto avoided him. He was sitting on the stairs when Ignis showed up.
“May i ask what you are doing Your Highness?”
“Shut up Ignis.” Noctis said but after a few moments of silence he continued, “What did i do to make Prompto so upset?”
“I do not know how to help you there Noct but it would seem that His Highness Ardyn is after Prompto as see speak.”
Without even thinking, Noctis ran home to get Promptos dogs.
“Come you two let find your master!” Noctis ordered. The two dogs leading Noctis toward Prompto.
