It was the most horrible thing that could possibly have happened. Why hadn't they told him? Did they think he was too weak to handle it, too emotionally inept to grip with the feelings of anger he now felt? Auron and the others had betrayed him by not telling him sooner. He had encouraged her to run at full speed into the gaping maw of death! And now all he wanted to do was take her hand and pull her to safety, far away from this world. He didn't know what to say to her. 'I'm sorry I said all those things' or 'I really didn't mean to say them', 'I didn't know!' I didn't know. That was the truth. I thought that once she defeated Sin, that was that, and for ten years, Spira's people would be safe…

But it wasn't like that at all. Summoners die. Every time Sin is defeated, a Summoner dies...I just don't understand it. It shouldn't have to be that way. I just…I can't lose her like that.

"Yuna," he said softly. "They told me…they told me everything."
