Angels Don't Exist
Disclaimer: I don't own anything but my ideas...
This is just a story to get out of a writer's block for Ancient Dwellings...I'm not sure if I'll finish it...i'm writing another gundam wing/sailor moon story too (other than this and Ancient Dwellings) i expect that one to be finished though...
Heero Yuy stared out into the night. Explosions light up the dark sky. Another war, another sorrow, another loss.
"When will people learn that fighting is not the way?" Relena Peacecraft exclaimed, "We can all live happily in peace!"
"It is human nature to fight, total pacifism does not exist. As long as humans live, there will be arguments, there will be disputes, there will be war. It is not something we can escape, it is not something as simple as not fighting." Admiral Jonus said.
"But we can try to promote pacifism!" Miss Peacecraft insisted, "If we can all learn to settle our disputes in other ways, there will be so many less deaths!"
"Humans eventually die. It is our nature. No matter how hard we try, we cannot avoid the inevitable." Admiral Jonus replied, calmly.
"So are you saying that we cannot do anything to extend their lives? Living is joy, sorrow, and emotions. To live is to love. How can you simply take that away from them?" Relena retorted.
"It is eventually taken away anyways. And what will happen once they are gone? They will be deprived of emotion and will be nothing. They will know nothing." Jonus said.
"They will become angels." Relena Peacecraft stated.
"Do you believe in angels?" Admiral Jonus asked.
"I do," Relena said softly, "How can I not if I see one everyday?"
Relena Peacecraft walked out of the meeting hall. Tired and mentally battered, she winced down the short steps of the hall.
"How did the meeting go?" Quatre asked.
Relena smiled, "It was...different. Where's Heero?" she asked.
"Heero's been here and gone." Duo said.
Heero walked along the harbour. There was no point in seeing the Pacifist Queen. He couldn't take it. A person only has so much patience.
And his patience just snapped. "Yes? How did the meeting go?" he asked what was expected of him.
"It was interesting. We talked about angels, Heero, do you believe in angels?" Relena asked.
"No." he replied.
"Why not?" Relena asked.
"Because they don't exist. And if they did, the world will be at peace, poverty wouldn't exist and everyone will have a nice warm home and a loving family." he almost snapped.
"Well, what if there are only a few of them and they cannot do everything? Heero, when you meet your first angel, you'll understand what I'm talking about." Relena said before she left.
Heero shook his head, not believing that it was possible.
Young Hotaru Tomoe, reborn for the 18th time sat in the Cronus room. Her mentor, Setsuna Meioh insisted that she learn everything there is to know about the Universe.
'All worlds are connected.' she read, 'One event will happen in another world. The event maybe changed in appearance but when stripped to the core, it is from the same origin.'
Hotaru sighed. Everytime she was reborn, she was confined to this room when growing up. She was obliged to learn everything there is to know. This time, she must travel to another world, another dimension as part of her education.
She remembered Setsuna's exact words. 'You must make note of the events in the other world and relate them to the events in this world. Remember, this excursion is for educational purposes only. The world will be completely unknown until the day of your trip there. You will have one year to complete this.' Setsuna has said. She was to leave today.
"Hotaru!" Setsuna called, "Are you ready?"
"Good. Come here and put your hand into the mist." Setsuna instructed, "Draw out the key to your world."
Hotaru put her hand into a bag made of mist. The bag resembled a big cloud. She let her hand descend and found there was only one key in there. Confused, she held it and took her hand out of the bag.
"There was only one key in there." she complained.
"There are so many different dimensions. Perhaps that world is the one in which you can benefit most from." Setsuna explained.
"But still, I would've liked to have more of a choice." Hotaru whined.
"Hotaru, I believe you will age when you enter a different world." Setsuna said.
"Age!?" Hotaru squeeked, "How old will I be? Please say I won't be an old grandma!!"
"I don't know." Setsuna said, "Each world contains souls of everyone. It is the physical body they lack. When you physically enter that world, your soul will merge with your body, making your appearance different. You will still have all your memories of this world."
"I see." Hotaru said solemnly, almost dreading going to the other world. "And what happens when I die?" she asked.
"You will be returned to this world. Are you ready?"
"Pass me your key." Setsuna said.
Hotaru handed Setsuna her elaborately decorated key.
"Strange that you will get this key." Setsuna muttered.
"What was that? Why is it strange?!" Hotaru asked, worried.
"It's nothing. Just that this world has no need of help. Never in thousands of years has this key appeared. Perhaps they finally found someone who can benefit their world." Setsuna whispered more to herself.
Setsuna put the key into the keyhole in the Time Gate. The gates swung open and Hotaru stepped through.
"Goodbye Hotaru, be safe and remember your lesson!" Setsuna's voice was fading.
"Goodbye Setsuna-mama!" Hotaru shouted, "See you in a year!"
Heero waited until it was dark before he began to head back to Quatre's estate. While walking, he noticed a shiny object resembling a shooting star fall into the ocean. He did the one thing that no one thought he would do, he wished upon it.
"If angels really do exist, let me meet one." He whispered into the night.
Well...that's it....do you want me to continue this? yes or no? pls review and tell me what you think!
