Another ordinary day in Paris....
Except for the fact that there was an enormous meteor screeching from outer space and aiming for the Trocadero. Ladybug and Chat Noir were already there. The meteor fell closer and closer by the second. The citizens wandering the area were safely evacuated to the edges of the premises, watching everything. The fiery meteor was already blazing, but towards the Eiffel tower.
Ladybug and Chat Noir had observed the meteor and feverishly sought out solutions to stop it, but none of them were practically possible. Just when everything seemed lost, Chat Noir turned to face Ladybug, looking at her square in the eye.
Chat Noir: Ladybug. Throw me at the meteor. The center if it!
Ladybug: WHAT?? This is NOT the time for jokes, Chat!
Chat: Ladybug! I'm not joking! I can stop the meteor before it hits, but I need to get to it mid air. Throw me to it. Trust me.
Ladybug hesitates. But the meteor speeds up and was only a minute away from impact.
Ladybug: No! That's just crazy! You'll never make it!
Chat: I will. Please... trust me on this. I know what to do. Please, just trust me.
After a moment's hesitation.....
Ladybug: Hold on! *yoyo grabs him* Go! *throws Chat at meteor* You'd better survive this, you stupid cat!!
Chat Noir: *mid air, flying towards meteor* Okay. *mumbles something* CATACLYSM!!
3... 2... 1..... 0
And then......... Silence.
A huge am out of disastrous dust and ashes hit the place, darkening the area. Everything was dusty and smoggy. Ladybug coughed.
Ladybug: Chat!! *runs into smog fog*
Ladybug ran straight into the cloud and frantically scanned the dark for Chat. Tears formed in her eyes, but not because of the stinging air. Ignoring them, she called out.
Ladybug: Chat! *cough, cough* CHAT!!! CHAT NOIR!! *cough* Where are you???
The smog settled a bit. There was a mountain of ashes of the destroyed meteor. But no sign if the hero that destroyed it. Civilians and authorities alike grew anxious and expected the worst. Ladybug was still frantically digging through the ashes, calling her beloved kitty to her.
Ladybug: Chat!? Chat, where are you?? *digs ashes* Chat!?
After a few more moments....
Ladybug: *gasp* *pulls out Plagg* A kwami...
Plagg was unconscious on the ground. Ladybug picked him up gently and looked at him. Chat told her about the cat kwami before and she knew perfectly who it was.
Ladybug: Plagg? Are you alright? It's me, Marinette.
Plagg: *stirring awake* Huh? Kid? You there? Adr- *snaps awake, sees Ladybug* Marinette! What happened? Where's Ad- I mean, Chat Noir? *looks around*
Ladybug: He's here somewhere. But I can't find him! There's too much ash.
Plagg: I'm... so... tired............. He used it.. He used the Ancient Disaster. I'll explain later, but now we have to find Adrien!
Ladybug: Wait, Adrien?! He's Chat Noir??? *goes blue in the face* 0.o??
Plagg: Focus! Find him! Ugh... *falls onto her hand again*
Ladybug walks out of the smoky area and places Plagg down on a bench.
Ladybug: Sleep tight. I'll find him.
With that, she runs back to the light dust and continues her search. Eventually the citizens get tired waiting and leave gradually. The police leave too, nobody seeing anything of Ladybug since she last ran in. The sun set and the moon was beginning to rise.
Ladybug didn't stop. Her arms ached and her legs felt weak. She continuously dug through the ashes.
Ladybug: Adrien.... Adrien!?? *tears form* No... don't go! Don't leave me! *moves more ashes*
Plagg was still sleeping on the bench Ladybug left him on. He was healing himself, a kwami gift. He would have enjoyed some cheese by then, but he couldn't even open his eyes right in exhaustion.
After moving the last pile of dust, Ladybug finds him, terribly still. She carries him over to the bench, picks up Plagg, and throws her yoyo and zips away. She swings through Paris carefully and lands on her own balcony. Tikki leaves the earrings and Marinette detransforms. Inside, Marinette places Adrien on her chaise and Plagg onto a soft pillow on her table. Tikki flew over to Plagg and tended to him, leaving Marinette and Adrien alone.
Adding was frighteningly still. Only his chest heaved with his breaths, which were short and weak. Marinette blanketed him and patiently waited for him to awaken. Plagg was up and eating macaroons already. Tikki took care of him and asked what happened.
Tikki: Plagg, what happened?
Plagg: Adrien used it.... Ancient Disaster...
Tikki: *gasp* He really did it?? The peak power of the black cat...
Plagg: *nods* And the meteor. It wasn't just an ordinary one! Before he destroyed it, I could faintly see a butterfly shaped marking on the center.
Tikki: It must be Hawk Moth!
Plagg: No. It wasn't Hawk Moth's symbol. It was... Karuna's.
Tikki: But... Karuna died 400 years ago!
Plagg: She left the Semikuma. We never found it. Remember?
Tikki: So it possessed the meteor...
