"Lightning, come over here for a second" said a certain goddess in her throne in Valhalla.
"Yes Etro?" Lightning walked to the goddesses' throne. Lightning has served under her goddess for one year now, as Serah and Noel's quest to save her is in vain. She grew used to having one ally with her for eternity.
"Lightning, do you wish to go back to live with your sister Serah again." Lightning was shocked when she heard this, was Etro going to let her return to a mortal life.
"Yes but I swore to serve you forever?" As much as Lightning wanted to be with Serah and have her old life back, she was a woman of her word.
"I know, but that man you met two years ago, the blonde chocobo haired one that somehow manages to appear here in Valhalla after almost committing suicide. He seems to be facing a powerful opponent for the Second time."
Could she possibly mean cloud, no of course it has to be cloud. "What do you mean?" Her tone sounded more concerned than she would have liked.
"He is fighting a man named Sephiroth again, if he manages to defeat him again, I will replace your position with Sephiroth and send you back to cocoon."
"But how, why I" she was cut off from the goddess.
"I made a deal with my sister Jenovah; If Cloud can beat Sephiroth twice she will give me two new warriors to fight for me. But I fear it may not happen For Sephiroth may be too much of a challenge now since cloud just took down some strong opponents before facing him. If he manages to win, you and your sister will return to cocoon."
Lightning was speechless and probably looking stupid in front of the goddess because not only was her mouth opened her arms where limp and she dropped her Gun blade and shield."
To a spiky blonde headed warrior who is down on his knees, His surroundings turned white as his best friend talks to him again.
"Cloud, you know what I told you, Right?"
Cloud remembered Zack's words, Embrace your dreams, and whatever happens protect your honor as SOLDIER; Cloud remembers Zack's dying words; you'll be… my living legacy.
"I swore, to never forget, but…. I tried."
"That's a good sign, you came and that's all that really matters." Aerith's voice rang in his head. "I hope you remembered what I said too."
Cloud remembered what Aerith said to him not to long ago; Everything's Alright.
"And what about what that pink haired girl said to you." Aerith reminded him.
Cloud remembers the time shortly after the Meteor incident he tried to kill himself on a delivery. Cloud Slit his wrist and waited to bleed out, then everything went white and he found himself in Valhalla.
"So this is how it ends?" An Unknown voice said. Cloud turned to see a pink haired warrior, he registered her armor and weapon but when he noticed the face he was a bit stunned be her beauty.
"Like it matters." Cloud said in his monotone voice.
"I have a lot of free time here in Valhalla I can watch every bodies life story, Cloud Strife you disappoint me. I never would of thought you would end your own life after the final battle."
"Why should I live on anyways….." he crossed his arms and looked away.
Lightning was running out of patience. "What about your focus? Isn't that what you promised? Now you want to forget it all and die right here?" She question/accused him.
"But I tried…" Cloud got cut off.
"I know you had it harder than me. And I know if I was in your place I would have given up to, but aren't you a man of your word. I know you got enough to complain, I was just like you. I was running away, but control your emotions." Lightning wanted to say more than you're a man of your word, what she wanted to say was, but your stronger, you're not supposed to give up.
"….. " Cloud said nothing but slowly returned to his world awake in a bed where Red XIII saved him.
Cloud slowly got up to fight. "Yeah," he continued his fight, and as he stood up "I'm not alone, not anymore. I am your living legacy." He thought.
I'm not doing the fight seen, because I'm lazy: P so watch the movie anyways leave a review and tell me what you think good bad or random, I can take a hit.
