~~~~Sephirtoth's Point Of View~~~~
Three times we had crossed paths. Three times we had fought. Three times that blond kid emerged victorious. In the Nibleheim reactor, in the Northern Cave, and in the Midgar ruins. What made him better than me? I am supposed to be the most powerful being to ever exist.
I thought back to what he said the last time we fought 'There's not a thing I don't cherish.'
Is it possible that I have been wrong about my purpose? I, of all people, should have known that I would end up being defeated. I was the antagonist and Cloud was the protagonist of this story. I was destined to be defeated. However, I don't regret my actions, at all. Those are in the past and cannot be changed.
"If there is some kind of supreme being, please listen to my prayer," I could not believe that I was doing this, but I felt it was the correct thing to do "Give me a chance to begin again, a chance to redeem myself."
"Sephiroth," An angelic voice replied "Do you truly believe that you, a being that has caused untold suffering, can change?"
"Yes," I answered "Why else would I ask?"
"I shall answer your prayer," The beautiful voice continued "But, you will be stripped of your magic power and be given a companion."
"I can survive without my magical capabilities, but who is it that will be accompanying me?" I had a fairly confident assumption.
"The woman who fell victim to your blade," I was correct, I was going to be paired with Aerith, the half Cetra "You both shall awaken in a city known as Hanging Edge. From there you will go to, what is called, the Vestige, you'll know it when you see it. You shall join the one known as Lightning and help in their journey."
"Understood," I said, confirming the instructions and committing the key information to memory "How long until I awake?"
"Hey," A different voice sounded "Wake up, sleepyhead."
I opened my eyes and saw looked to be a warzone. I sat up and my hand brushed something metallic. I turned and saw my steel battle staff; it was really nothing more than a long steel rod with sharp ridges at one end.
I looked a bit further and saw a thin sword that looked to be about seven feet long, including the handle. Just beyond the unusual sword was the wielder of it. He was lying on his back with his silver hair fanned out underneath him.
I stood up, walked over to him and kneeled down next to him. I giggled at the familiarity of this situation. First Zack, my boyfriend, then Cloud, my bodyguard, and now Sephiroth, my killer. I dismissed the last thought as I remembered what he said while we were in the life stream.
That event was in the past and he didn't regret his action. It was understandable seeing as how he was a soldier his entire life. If he regretted taking a life then he would have broke down a long time before he became the Great General Sephiroth.
"Hey," I said as I saw his brow twitch "Wake up, sleepyhead." His eyes opened quickly, as if he was getting ready to fight. I noted the simple fact that he was given round pupils by the one who sent us here.
"Tell me truthfully," The former general said flatly "Do you greet everyone like this?"
I knew he had just made a joke, but his face said that he was completely serious.
"No," I replied with a giggle "Just important people." I then stood up and held out a hand to help him to his feet. He stared at my outstretched hand as if it was something that could prove threatening. He got to his feet without my assistance and picked up his sword.
I looked around the warzone-like area and 'found' the Vestige. I was about to point it out but I saw that Sephiroth was already trying to figure out how to get to our destination.
This is the perfect moment for my ability to fly or for something oddly convenient. I thought as I saw that the Vestige was moving slowly through the air.
Two high pitched engines made me look up and I saw two things that looked like flying motorcycles. They landed near Aerith and I, and one man, in a strange looking suit, with a gun got off the machines. They aimed their guns at us and I lifted my sword, the Masamune, and pointed it at them.
There was open space about twenty feet wide between me and the enemies and with my SOLDIER enhancements I crossed the gap in less than three seconds. I decapitated the first enemy and pushed my sword into the others throat. He had managed to take a shot but it just glanced off my spaulder.
I then raised my right hand and waved for Aerith to catch up to me. I sat on the first machine and quickly figured out the controls. I made Aerith sit in front of me because I was nearly a foot and a half taller than she.
The machine lifted off the ground as soon as I activated it. I was steering the thing with my right hand while I held my sword outside the vehicle in my left. Aerith had her staff held close to her chest as I forced the small vehicle to its top speed.
We arrived at an entrance to the Vestige within minutes. A hallway is what greeted us, a long hallway with no doors on the side. It was more of a tunnel than hallway.
We soon came face to face with a large red shield. My first instinct was to slash the shield; my Masamune could cut through anything. Well, it could when I had my magic, which is a lesson I learned the hard way. The blade just bounced off the red shield and my wrist twisted awkwardly which made it crack, a small pain, nothing worth halting for.
Me and the dark skinned man jumped off the mobile bridge and onto a road that was directly beside the Vestige. There was an opening in the side and we leapt from the road to the Vestige.
There was a small military vehicle inside the opening. I drew my weapon, Blaze Edge, and continued cautiously through the tunnel.
I lifted Blaze Edge into a defensive position when I heard rapidly approaching footsteps. I quickly glanced over my shoulder at the man who decided to follow me from Bodhum. The next thing I knew I was feeling cold steel against my throat.
This is just some random idea of mine; the feed back I get will determine the fate of this story.
I know it's kind of short, but hey, this is the trial chapter.
If you like this idea, review.
