AN: This is my first EVER fanfiction, updates will be few and far in-between unless I get some reviews. They will be some serious motivation. I'm making this up as I go so if you have to flame it, make it constructive criticism. Thanks! 

Chapter 1: The End of the Beginning.

I stood there, watching as Sheeta said her goodbyes to Dola and her family. I wondered if we would ever be able to meet them again. They were on their way to start a life of relaxation and leisure……at least for a while. They were pirates after all.

As for my self, I was probably going to head back to my home in the valley and try to restart my life as an engineer. I had worked with the boss and his family for almost six years. They were the closest thing I had to a family and me just disappearing must have them very worried. I realized with a start that the entire town in effect was my family. They all had a part in raising me. That I wanted to go back to the valley!

But what about Sheeta?

I glanced over at her where she was hugging Dola. I didn't know what she wanted.

Part of me wanted to take her to my home and she could live with me……But another part of me knew that she might want to return to her farm in Gondoa, a place with no danger, no adventure, and no Laputa.

I looked at her as we pushed off in the Kite from the small line of airships. She looked so happy that everybody was ok, but I knew that somewhere deep down she was hurting for the loss of her family, her People, and her life. She had come to terms with her life and was ready to die in Laputa to stop Muska.

And that terrified me……I knew that I would do anything to save her, that I would give up my own life if it would spare hers.

As we started to drift away from Dola and her family, I made a promise to my self. That I would always be there for Sheeta. That no matter what, I would help her in any way that I can.

I unclasped my hand and looked at the small blue stone that I had made my oath on. The small stone that had brought us together. It's kind of hard to believe that something so simple could bring great destruction or…… I glanced at Sheeta again…… great beauty.

"Strange," I thought," Maybe we will get our "Happily ever after".
