"Aeris! We did it! He's dead…Sephiroth is dead…" Cloud whooped.

He turned to Aeris who was lying on the ground breathing shallow..

Cloud's smile faded…

"Aeris??? Aeris…!!"Cloud screamed running towards her…

He held her in his arms…

Aeris looked into Cloud's eyes weakly…

"Cloud…I have so much to tell you…" Aeris whispered…

Cloud held her hand and nodded.

"Before I met you…I was…alone.." she whispered.

Many nights I would wish on a shooting star

Dreams and hope were all I ever knew,

I made my wish and my prayers were answered,

Through years of waiting…I had found you.

"I'm so happy I met you…I will never forget…our journey together…"she smiled weakly…

"Why did you…why did you use your energy why did you do it…" Cloud asked still holding her hand..

Tears streamed from his face as he knew his love was dying in front of him. His only love..

"To save all of you…" Aeris said smiling…

Though destiny has its path,

You're the one I will love forever.

Should I ever find myself lonely.

I'll wait for the day we'll finally be together…

She was having trouble breathing now…

She didn't have much time left…

She looked to the stars shining in the sky…

Tears streamed down her face as well…she only had these last moments of her life left…

No matter where I am,

Whenever you think of me,

Love lasts forever,

And in my heart…you'll always be.

Whenever you feel lonely,

Remembering our memories,

Just look to the heavens…

And the stars will lead you back to me.

"Cloud I don't have much time…I have to tell you something important…please…don't cry for me…"

I love you with all I am,

I was too scared to let you see,

I watched you from a distance,

Thinking you could never feel the same for me

Cloud looked into her eyes…

"Aeris…I…"

But I now I look at your loving face,

Now so peaceful and away,

Can't believe I never told you,

That in my heart you'll always stay.

"Cloud…I love you…" Aeris whispered as she fell back and her eyelids closed…

Cloud's eyes widened..

"AERIS!! Don't leave me! I love you! Please don't go!" Cloud whimpered…

The other AVALANCHE members watched and wept for their dear friend and comrade. Tears streamed from their faces but none were as sorrowful as Cloud…

"Please don't leave me…"Cloud begged.

No matter where I am,

Whenever you think of me,

Love lasts forever,

And in my heart…you'll always be.

Whenever you feel lonely,

Remembering our memories,

Just look to the heavens…

And the stars will lead you back to me.

Tears fell more than ever down Cloud's handsome face…

She never heard him say those words to her…the words he felt in his heart…

I will always remember,

I will never let go,

I make my wish now to the stars,

And I hope you'll always know…

Cloud held her close as he wept and he looked to the star-filled sky…

Inside he made a wish with all his heart…

No matter where I am,

Whenever you think of me,

Love lasts forever,

And in my heart…you'll always be.

Whenever you feel lonely,

Remembering our memories,

Just look to the heavens…

And the stars will lead you back to me.

Cloud held Aeris close and continually wept. He then noticed something was happening…

Aeris was now glowing a faint glow…

She was glowing brighter…Holy was surrounding her body…

No matter where I am,

Whenever you think of me,

Cloud watched amazed…

Holy encircled her in a tight cocoon and faded into Aeris' body…

She opened her eyes..

Love lasts forever,

And in my heart…you'll always be.

Cloud looked at her lovingly…his eyes streaming with happy tears…

He embraced her and whispered into her ear…

"I never got the chance to tell you…but I love you…"

Whenever you feel lonely,

Remembering our memories,

Aeris' eyes looked into Cloud's…

He loves me…

Aeris fell into Cloud's embrace…

Cloud held her tight and stroked her hair… he looked up to the sky…thanking the stars silently….

Just look to the heavens…

And the stars will lead you back to me.

And Aeris Gainsborough and Cloud Strife had beaten the impossible odds and found themselves in a beautiful kiss that they had longed to feel for so long.…

They had found each other once again…through following the stars…and their hearts.

Author's Note: Okay this is my fourth fic. I don't know if it's any good. But hey I tried.

I HAVE CONQUERED THE WRITER"S BLOCK! BWAHAHAHA!

I do not own any of the Final fantasy characters...they are under the licence on Squaresoft!

Oh and the songs…

The first one where Aeris is singing to the stars is "Did you ever love somebody?" by Jessica Simpson

And the second one "Stars will lead you back to me" was written by ME! Yes ME! I'm a songwriter and a singer so I decided to stick one of my songs in here. So try not to flame that so much. Please comment that if you like.

Thanks for reading everyone…. please R & R.
