New Beginning Chapter 1
Queen Garnet sat in her throne listing to the proposal for new taxes that a noble had just given her. It was interesting, but it had one major flaw to it. It would give the nobles a loop hole in which they did not have to pay any taxes on certain imports. She knew that although this would please the nobles, the common folk would hate her with a passion.
Wincing she stood up and ran her hand over her enlarged belly. It is almost time, she thought. Walking over to the fire place she calmly threw the document into the fire. As she was watching the paper burn she thought back on how the child in her belly came to be. It has been 2 years since Zidane came back to her. That same night he came back he proposed to her on the spot, right in front of the whole city. There was no way she could turn him down, not that she wanted to in the first place.
The nobles were certainly not pleased with her choice of husband, but they were able to come up with a compromise. Zidane was not named King, but a Prince, and any child they had would become the next ruler. Of course she still counted on his input for a lot of things, and he was actually a very good ruler.
It had been a little over a year after his return; they had been only married for six months, when she found out that she was pregnant. She had never seen him smile so brightly before. Now the time was drawing near, soon their child would be coming into this world, and he was not around. Feeling a slight pain in her stomach she placed her hand over the baby. Then another pain came that brought her to the ground.
Trying to be as calm as possible she called out for the guard standing watch. In a flash the doors flew open and the solider was in the room. "Are you alright your Majesty?"
"Yes I am, but please go and get my midwife and my husband. I think the child is coming."
"Yes your Majesty, right away."
Once he was out of the room Garnet winced as another wave of pain came on. Please hurry.
On another planet Rinoa Lionheart was laying on the hospital bed with her husband beside her. In each of their arms they held a small child. She still could not believe that she had given birth to twins. She was currently holding their daughter and Squall was holding their son. She had never seen Squall as happy as he was when he first saw their children. "What should we name them Squall?" She asked her husband.
"Well I was thinking that we should name our son Rain, what do you think for our daughter?"
"I have always liked the name Shana."
"Shana? I like that."
Turing to her Squall gently kissed her cheek, and then turned his attention back to their son. "Do you think I will be a good father Rinoa?"
She smiled at her husband. "I know you will Squall, I know you will. Together I believe that we will be able to raise two wonderful children."
After a moment the two switched children so she could hold their son and Squall got a chance at his daughter. She thought that this day would never come. Even after the Sorceress War, as it was now called, Squall was still his timid self, and she was afraid that he would never take their relationship to the next step. But then he surprised her when he asked her to marry him. That was three years ago now, and she had been living in a world of bliss ever since.
All of their friends had gotten together and settled down. Seliphe and Irvine had gotten married very quickly and they now have a child who is now two years old. Zell got married to his hometown sweet heart, a girl named Jolie. Even Quitis and Seifer had gotten together and they are now married and Quitis is expecting a child.
As for her, she had discovered how to control her Sorceress powers and how to resist the temptation of power. Once she learned it she knew that it had to be kept secret, even though it was a wonderful thing, it would not work if there was pre-knowledge in the sorceress mind. Looking down she smiled at their son. Nothing had gone wrong for a few years, perhaps now they had finally earned peace.
Back in Alexandria Garnet had just given birth to a son. Zidane was currently holding him as the midwives helped Garnet get cleaned up. Looking at his son Zidane could not believe how much they looked alike. He had his mother's eyes, noise, and mouth; but he had Zidanes hair and a small tail coming out at the small of his back. Which surprised everyone was that he did not have a summoner's horn on his forehead. Perhaps in time they would learn whether or not he could actually summon.
Soon a servant came out of Garnets bedroom and said that he could enter. Walking carefully to avoid waking up the baby, Zidane entered their room and made his way to the four poster bed where his wife lay. Sitting down beside his wife he carefully gave her the small bundle that was wrapped securely in his arms. Garnet's face brightened instantly at seeing their son. "He looks just like you my dear," Zidane said while wrapping his arm around his wife.
"Maybe, but he also has a lot of you in him," she threw his a smirk, "that may prove interesting if he starts to steal from all the nobles who come to the castle."
Zidane held up his hands defensively, "hey do not blame he if the kid picks up on some of my skills without realizing it."
Garnet just shook her head. "What should we name him Zidane?"
"I do not know, do you have any ideas?"
"I was thinking, perhaps Asher?"
Zidane looked up at her face. "I like it a lot. Asher Alexdrios it is then."
With that settled Zidane pulled his wife and son in closer to him and rested his head against his wife. All was well now; perhaps they could finally have some peace and quiet.
On another world two robed figures met at the edge of a cliff. "So this is the place you were talking of. Is it possible to get the plans rolling again?"
The other shook their head. "I do not believe so; it was mostly destroyed a while back. I do not believe that there is enough power around to actually get this all going again."
"So what exactly did you bring me here for?"
"What do you mean; I thought that you called me here?"
"No I called you both here." A third figure stepped forth from the shadows.
"Who exactly are you."
"Someone who needs both of yours help. It is true that this place cannot be activated with your powers; however there are those who can. It would take two very powerful people work."
"If our combined powers are not great enough, then who do you suggest?"
The third person walked to the edge of the cliff next to the two others. He took his time before answering. "There are two that I had in mind, both of you know them actually, quite well I might add. But now it is impossible to reach them. No our only choice now lies in two others, and conveniently for us they have just been born."
"Good, then let us go and get them."
"I would but there is a problem, which is why I called you two here."
The first guessed what the reason was right away. "Their powers are not developed enough, so we need to wait until the right time then lure them here, am I correct?"
"Yes you are, if my calculations are correct then we need to wait at least eighteen years before the children's power will be great enough."
"So what are we suppose to do in the mean time, stand around on the sidelines?"
"No, even if we can get all of this running again, we will still not have the power to hold back an assault if the children realize what is going on. I need you two to go back and build up our forces so we have an army waiting for us. It should not be that hard for either of you."
"There is still a problem," one of the others said, "there is still someone here who could mess up everything, even though he almost died, giving him eighteen years to recover may cause a problem."
"I know who you are talking about. I will stay here and get everything ready, and if I come across him I will deal with him accordingly. Now both of you go, we will stay in contact."
The other two nodded and began to leave, however one stopped and turned back. "Just what are you hoping to accomplish with all of this might I ask?"
"Nirvana my friend, nirvana."
