Since Hal lost his memory, he didn't even know he had blue eyes, so having green is not such a startling thing for him. "Really? Weird." He says.
Then he stares down at his ring, wondering if it can restore more memories since it helped jog one earlier. "Ring, can you restore all my memories?"
Hal glances at Vai with a smile, then he looks back down at his ring. He couldn't but feel a bit excited at the idea of getting his memories back, "Do it!"
Hal blinks, dumbfounded, "What?! You helped me earlier!" Talk about frustration! Wait...insufficient willpower? Willpower?! WILLPOWER! That's it! The rings work on willpower! Hal closes his eyes and hears his ring speak again.
[Willpower Levels Increasing...]
[Commencing Memory Recall...]
An explosion of memories comes into Hal's head as his command is received and obeyed by his ring. He remembers childhood, flying with his uncle. He remembers the plane crash that killed him and miles and miles of wilderness Hal had to travel alone. He remembers going into the air force, becoming a great pilot in a short time but then getting court martialed. Hal remembers it all, he remembers everything.
He watches a vague image in his head as Vai dies in his arms and the events that lead up to that. From the back of his mind, he hears screaming and slowly comes to realize it's not someone, it's him. He MUST do that he can to prevent this future from happening! He has to save Vai!
As Hal screams a long drawn out 'no', his body changes. He becomes transparent and turns completely green. But if Vai tries to touch him, he is, despite his transparency, solid enough to touch. But he does not feel like he's flesh and bone, but rather made of energy. What in the world was going on?! What was happening to him?! Was he transforming into something more than human?!
