I know you're out there. I know you can hear me.

It doesn't matter if you say anything. I want you to listen. I want you to listen carefully.

I was a guardian to my friend, to my brother, Braska, and his daughter, Yuna. And now, I'm a guardian to Lady Lenne. I know her story now, and I know your story.

You don't know me, but soon, our stories will cross; Lenne's and yours and mine will intertwine.

You're listening now. I can sense it. You're wondering who I am.

I know why you did it. I know why you went there, and I know why you can't leave.

Soon, I'll help you. My help will give you a choice. A choice between the end of your story, and the eternal torment that you live now. I can't make that choice for you, and I don't intend to.

I know you are angry. You are upset. Yet, you do not cry. No tears fall from your eyes. You are too strong for that.

She loves you for your strength, even now. She's scared for you.

When I began on this journey, I made a promise to her, you know. A promise to help her as she has helped me.

I will fulfill that promise.

No matter the cost. I promise you that.


And, that's all she wrote.

You may be asking yourself exactly why this is so late, and yet so short. Honestly, one writer's block after another, and every time I tried to write up 1000 words... it just didn't fit with me.

I know previously I've said that there would be another in this series. I plan that at some point in the future, there will be. But, it's not today. I think that with the massive amount of planning and thought that I was putting into this, I burned myself out of FFX/X-2. It makes me sad, cause I still like this series idea.

I want to thank all my loyal reviewers. I'm sorry if I disappointed you with my last chapter. If it makes a difference, it disappointed me as well. I'm sorry I couldn't do better for this.

However, this doesn't mean I'm gone from fanfiction. And if you think that? You're nutsy. P Check out The Runic Legacy.

Also, Auron's story, plus who he saw near Yuna is explained in my good friend Ben's series that he's been writing in the FFX Realm. Check him out (Nightfire04). He really does a nice job. His current project (Dimensional Legend) is going to turn out excellent, I promise you that.

DWR signing off.

Don't worry Auron. I've not forgotten about you yet.
