Author's notes: Hi guys, it's been a month since my last update ne. Today, November 20th, is the celebration of 'Teacher's Day" in my country so we have had lots of fun with our professors in university. We partied, we sang, we danced, we told stories, we EVERYTHING!!! So now to add up the spirit, I present you the final chapter of "Eternal Wind" - part 2 of my three-part saga. My previous songfic of a chapter has been a great success! *smile radiantly* Thanks so much for your compliment!! *wink* Just to let you know how much I love writing songfic, I have been listening to the target song the entire time writing this chapter. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do!

I have not nor have I ever owned Fantastic Children. Sad isn't it? :(

Song used: "First Love" sung by Utada Hikaru.

Chapter 7

Several years passed...

"Miss Lui?"

Looking up from the paper in front of her, the lady smiled brilliantly from beneath a curtain of long hair. She set down the pencil in her hand and gathered her items, several papers dotted with drafts of a mysterious painting, into a neat pile in front of her. Sipping softly from a large cup of coffee, she gestured toward the chair opposite.

"Hello, Eric. Please, sit down."

The young fashion designer smiled shyly. "Thank you." He said, taking it. "How have you been?"

"Fine thanks." She answered, her fingers unconsciously twirling the silver necklace around her neck.

A shadow crossed his face. "Um…I've been meaning to ask since our last meeting, miss Lui…May I ask where you got that necklace?"

Absently, Helga looked up at him. She smiled softly. "Oh. This?" She twirled it in her fingers. "I got it from a friend a long time ago. It's been…five years? Yeah, about that. Five years."

He looked down at his hands. "Miss Lui-"

Something furry rubbed up against his leg and tugged down on his bright blue coat.

"Huh--? What is that…?" Eric suddenly exclaimed, looking down at his feet to see a white lemur, probably the rarest kind he'd ever seen. Its little hands lodged on his coat and consistently tugging it.

"Amedeo!" Helga called out. The lady chuckled to herself as she knelt down to the creature's level.

"Neh, Amedeo." She said amusedly. "You shouldn't have bothered this sweet man…"

Eric was bothering looked curiously down at Helga as she talked to Amedeo. The people surrounding them were peering inquisitively at him as well.

The macaco then sprang up her right shoulder and stayed there, looking at him attentively. Helga smiled and returned to her seat.

"Excuse me neh."

"Oh- it's alright! But is it yours?" The young fashion designer asked.

"It's from him as well. However, he passed away Eric. A while ago. I wouldn't be here now if not for him, for several reasons."

Eric's mouth slowly rounded. "Oh…I'm so sorry."

"That was a long time ago. I'm living now. Just like I promised him." She absently stroked Amedeo's smooth white fur. "Anyway, shall we begin now? What do you think about these new designs for--"

Outside the window of the café, it was raining again.

It was nice and cool. It was just a light, friendly drizzle this time...

And someone, unseen by the others, was still watching over her as the crystal drops sailing through the air, with a content smile on his face.

The last kiss

Tasted like tobacco

A bitter and sad smell

Tomorrow, at this time

Where will you be?

Who will you be thinking about?

You are always gonna be my love

Even if I fall in love with someone once again

I'll remember to love

You taught me how

You are always gonna be the one

It's still a sad song

Until I can sing a new song

The paused time is

About to start moving

There's many things that I don't want to forget about

Tomorrow, at this time

I will probably be crying

I will probably be thinking about you

You will always be inside my heart

You will always have your own place

I hope that I have a place in your heart too

Now and forever you are still the one

It's still a sad song

Until I can sing a new song

You are always gonna be my love

Even if I fall in love with someone once again

I'll remember to love

You taught me how

You are always gonna be the one

It's still a sad song

Until I can sing a new song
