I'm very, very sorry – in case you didn't know .. I promised to make a InuKag fic right after my Naruto fic but I'm not done my Naruto fic and I'm deeply sorry – I wanted to make this story before I forgot the subject… SORRY! Also I'm making this kid of a cross between Final Fantasy X and X-2 well I'm taking some characters from X if you want to put it that way. (This fic is really a X-2 fic.)


Title: You're One Step Ahead

Summary: Rikku found a sphere that when Yuna looked into it she saw Tidus, the person who left 2 years ago, after they defeated Sin but now he is back. He remembers Yuna just as she was but now when she meets him for the first time in 2 years, she forgets or is made to forget about Tidus but still remembers everyone else. Tidus is always one step ahead of Yuna and who wants them to be separated? Is it the girl Tidus meets or who?

Genre: Romance/Tragedy

Rating: K+

Disclaimer: I do not own Final Fantasy X or X-2 but I'm playing X and I'm going to start playing X-2 when I'm done and also I don't know how the plot is in X-2 so I'm making some of it up.

Aging: Yuna – 19, Tidus – 19, Rikku - 17, Paine - 18

NOTE: It is going to be part game setting and maybe part modern … I'll have to think about that. Also that I already mentioned that I'm taking some characters from X and putting them in X-2 because I'm not sure if they are mentioned in X-2. The whole fic is gong to be in Yuna's POV and if I change it you'll see it.

-- Chapter 1: Who Are You? --



It was about 2 years ago when Tidus, Auron, Wakka, Rikku, Lulu, Kimahri, and I defeated Sin. I am now part of the Gullwings with Paine, Rikku, and the Al Bheds. We are the Gullwings and also Sphere Hunters (kinkyho-slayr: this I am guessing I'm not sure if it's true). We became Sphere Hunters when Rikku found a sphere and when I looked into it I saw him, or someone that looked like him. Rikku and I still remember the days when we were with everyone, I wish it still were like that…

One day I was walking in a forest in Kilika, when suddenly we fell down (We meaning Paine, Rikku and I.) a large hole in the middle of the ground. I landed in a field… full of flowers…


"Where am.. I?" I asked myself, "Rikku! Paine!" I called out my friends names but I guessed that we all got separated.

"Where am I?" I asked myself again, trying to get up but I fell back down again.

"Yuna is that you?" Came a voice that sounded very familiar but I couldn't pick out whose it was.

"Who are you and how do you know my name!" I called out.

"Don't you remember Yuna?" the voice answered and there out of the mist came a tall person? Or what was it? I thought it was a person but the face was all blurry.

"Who are you?" I asked again.

"TIDUS!" Came Rikku's voice as she came running and hugged the person standing in front of me.

"Here let me help you up." He said as he let out his hand. I grabbed it as he helped me up, while I kept staring into his face, that was all blurry …I couldn't see it properly, trying to remember who he was.

"Thanks.." I said unsurely as I let go of his hand.

"I see so you don't remember me and you can't see my face because of that." Said the person, "You can call me Tidus. Sooner or later you'll remember."

'Tidus... I've heard that name before but where and when and I still don't remember who he is!' I thought. He took my hand and we walked into a village. A very familiar village.

"This is… this is my island...It's Besaid!" I called with a smile on my face. Tidus looked at me and smiled, though I didn't notice it.


"Uh huh?"

"How did you know where I was born?"

"This is where I met you." He said as he took me into the temple, "When you became a summoner."

"A sum- … a summoner?" I asked, 'What's a summoner?' I thought.

"Yuna!" Came a voice that I remembered quite clearly. I turned the way that I heard the voice.

"Wakka!" I cried as I ran to hug my friend.

"How did... are we..?"

"How you got here ... I brought you all here and no, we are not dead." Tidus' answer relived me.

"Wakka … I don't remember being a summoner.. what's going on?" I asked Wakka, I was worried of what was happening and who Tidus was it was troubling me, 'Is Tidus... no, it can't be.' I thought as I reached in my pocket. No it wasn't there. I was suddenly shocked.

I ran to the field where Tidus found me and searched all over. No.. I couldn't find it, now how was I supposed to tell if Tidus was... the person I saw in the sphere, now I wouldn't know what his face looked like and ... I would never remember.

"Yuna are you OK?" Rikku asked.

"Yeah.. I'm fine." I answered, ' I guess Rikku doesn't remember about the sphere...'

'I wonder why she's like this. How did she forget about me and being a summoner? Did something happen during her fall? What sphere is she talking about? What's going on?' Tidus wondered.

"I think I just need some rest." I told everyone.

"OK." Wakka replied as he and Rikku took me to a bed.

'I hope some rest will help me remember..' I thought as I drifted away into a silent sleep...

"It's been a while … Yuna." Came a voice that sounded almost identical to Tidus'.

"Tidus.. where am I?" I asked when he came out of he mist and then at that moment I saw his face. It was a kind and smiling face, inside it made me feel happy and warm, I wished the feeling would never stop.

"We're at the Spring.. I like to come here and watch the sunset… It looks very nice and gentle." I nodded and looked towards the slowly setting sun. He was right it looked nice and gentle. Tidus walked closer and put his arm around my waist, I didn't mind and then, standing there with him I didn't care of what his face looked like or who he was. This feeling with him made me feel like I was in a perfect world with ... peace.

"Yuna.. I've missed you so much."

"Yeah.. I've missed you too." I said as I turned around and hugged him. He hesitated and then hugged me as well.

"Yuna ... I..-" Tidus was cut off as I woke up.

"It was only a dream .." I said quietly as I got out of bed, not noticing that I was still in Besaid and that that wasn't a dream. I took a walk to find out that I was in the spring, that was in my dream.

"So it really was in Besaid." I said quietly to myself not noticing Tidus was also there and he had just noticed I had come.

"Yuna.." He whispered but I didn't hear, he hesitated but he called me again, this time louder, "Yuna.."

"Oh sorry I didn't notice you were here. Sorry." I looked up and there I saw his smiling face and it wasn't blurry. Maybe my eyes were hurting yesterday. I smiled and I guessed he noticed I could see his face.

"It's... OK." He said as we walked closer to each other. When we were a bit closer than arms reach he picked me up and twirled me in the air. I laughed and he did too. He put me down right next to him and still held on.

"I'm glad that we're here together.." He said. I nodded.



"Can you still take me to see Zanarkand?" I asked.

"Sure." He said as he leaned on me.

'When though..' I wondered to myself, 'We won't have to much time left..'

"Hey! I was looking for you two." Came a voice and I was certain I knew who it was. Tidus and I felt embarrassed as we took a small step away from each other. Tidus smiled.

"I thought I told you not to get any ideas." Wakka said playfully. Tidus laughed.

"I guess I forgot. It was two years ago." He played along. We all started to laugh.

"I guess we should be heading back." I said as soon as we stopped laughing.

"Yeah.. you're right." Tidus said. He put his arm around my waist and pulled me closer as we walked away from the spring.


A/N: OK this was an OK chapter I know it's kind of lame/dumb right now but I'll try to make it better. Though I love making stories I'm not too good at ideas and making them good sorry. I hope you liked this chapter and please review!

Luv Ya,

Yuna Tidus
