My first Grandia II fic, not many people seem to write these. I decided to do this one from the song I chose with it 'cause well...its just a really sad song I guess. Made me cry. Anyway, make sure you review.

Disclaimer: I don't own Grandia II or the song When You're Gone by Avril Lavigne.

.When You're Gone.

He didn't know what she wanted. He never knew. All he knew was that he always seemed to find a way to piss her off, whether he meant to or not.

And in her eyes, he was damn good at that. With the language cleaned up, obviously.

But of course they couldn't get along, it was to be expected. He was a merciless Geohound who had anything but thoughts of praising Lord Granas, and she was a Songstress of the guy. Or the God, I should say. No matter what he said, she always took it the wrong way because of his nature. He never was a real nice guy or anything, but he didn't intend to upset her all hours of the day. Who knew a guy like Ryudo could actually care about upsetting a Godly Sister of Granas?

I always needed time on my own

I never thought I'd, need you there when I cried

Elena never noticed that he cared, neither did she notice that she cared. And she never thought she could hate someone as much as she hated Ryudo. Well, she never thought she could hate period. Although she considered him good looking, she really hated him, which was a big step in the wrong direction for her. She couldn't really pinpoint what it was, she finally just decided it was everything about him. His smirk, his attitude, his lack of kindess, his innapriopriate use of the english vocabulary, and his sarcasm. Oh, how she absolutely hated his sarcasm. She honestly thought she was going to start ripping out her hair if she was to hear him call her Princess again.

And the days feel like years when I'm alone

And the bed where you lie, is made up on your side


He remembered so clearly the day they met and how she loudly protested to him being her escort to Garmia Tower. He didn't really care, he had already been paid for it, so if she was going to have a hissy fit, so be it.

He remembered whenever he would use a certain word(s), she would politely ask him to rephrase his statement.

He remembered whenever he would ignore a townsman's plee for assistance, she would stop to help, claiming that their own purpose could wait, even though they had limited time.

She remembered his horrible manners and the way he would treat those in need.

She remembered Millenia. She didn't really know it was possible, but she was almost sure that she hated Millenia even more than Ryudo. But there was something that she hated more than both of them.

The fact that she was so jealous of the relationship she thought they had. She was always so busy worrying about that, that she never realized he was doing everything for her that he could.

When you walk away, I count the steps that you take

Do you see how much I need you right now?

Sure, he had trouble showing it, but he was trying.


She had taken him for granted, and now that he was gone, she didn't really know what to do with herself. She spent her time thinking about him and wondering if she'd ever see him again. Hell, she missed that boy. For all she knew, he could be dead somewhere. And she knew he would never have a proper burial. He had no family. He only had Skye.

When you're gone, the pieces of my heart are missing you

When you're gone, the face I came to know is missing too

When you're gone, so are the words I need to hear to always get me through the day

And make it okay

I miss you


She knew she must be losing it. Yeah, she had the perfect life, in a vast Cathedral, and not to mention she was treated like a princess. How ironic. But nothing could be perfect when that one thing was still missing.

I've never felt this way before

Everything that I do, reminds me of you

And the clothes you left, they lie on the floor

They smell just like you, I love the things that you do

She just couldn't get rid of it, couldn't forget. It was driving her mad.

We were made for each other

Out here forever

I know we were

She needed to find him, and she needed to tell him.

All I ever wanted was for you to know

Everything I do I give my heart and soul

I can hardly breathe I need to feel you're here with me

She would find him if it took the rest of her life.

She didn't care, she had to erase all of her mistakes. She had to erase all those stubborn moments when he was trying.

She couldn't help but think she had driven him away in the first place.

But nonetheless, she knew she would find him.

I miss you


No matter what, I just could not make this come out how I wanted it to. Ah, well...

Hopefully it isn't too dreadful.
