Epilogue

I just wanted to add this chapter for fun! SephFan's comment gave me an idea. 'They should start a band' is what it said. Well... that gave me an idea. Thanks SephFan!


I Need a Hero

Every soldier was packed into the huge main hall. Apparently a few weeks ago, Genesis had spread a rumor, saying a band was performing tonight. Behind the curtain, a certain blonde was pacing back and forth.

"Zack... I'm nervous..." he said.

"Dude, relax. It's just one song. You'll be alright," Zack said, ruffling his blonde spiked hair.

Sephiroth came up, dressed in a black muscle t-shirt and black Levi pants. He wrapped an arm around Cloud in an attempt to calm his nerves and it worked for he relaxed in his lover's hold.

"I agree with Zack on this. If Genesis says we're going to be great, then we'll show them that we ARE," he said.

Cloud nodded, smiling.

"Guys, we're up in one minute!" Genesis called out.

"Gotcha! Let's get ready, guys," Zack said before they split.

Outside, the soldiers saw the lights go off and went nuts. The girls in the band were a female soldier named Kisa and Tifa, Cloud's childhood friend.

"You guys ready?" Genesis asked, taking his seat behind the drum set.

The rest of the band nodded. Zack went outside and a light was shone on him.

"Ladies and gentlemen, the event you have been waiting for! Give it up for... THE LIBERATORS!!!" he announced, making them go nuts.

The curtain was drawn and there was the said band. Cloud smiled to Sephiroth, who nodded in return and started the song. The band followed suit and the crowd cheered once more. Then, Cloud and Sephiroth started the lyrics.

I'm just a step away
I'm just a breath away
Losing my faith today

(Tifa)

Falling off the edge today

(Sephiroth and Cloud)

I am just a man
Not superhuman

(Kisa)

I'm not superhuman

(Sephiroth)

Someone save me from the hate

(Sephiroth and Cloud)

It's just another war
Just another family torn

(Tifa and Kisa)

Falling from my faith today

(Sephiroth)

Just a step from the edge
Just another day in the world we live

(All)

I need a hero to save me now
I need a hero, save me now
I need a hero to save my life
A hero will save me just in time

(Cloud)
I've gotta fight today
To live another day
Speaking my mind today

(Tifa)

My voice will be heard today

(Sephiroth)
I've gotta make a stand
But I am just a man

(Kisa and Tifa)

I'm not superhuman

(Cloud)

My voice will be heard today

(Sephiroth and Cloud)
It's just another war
Just another family torn

(Kisa)

My voice will be heard today

(Sephiroth and Cloud)

It's just another kill
The countdown begins to destroy ourselves

(All)
I need a hero to save me now
I need a hero, save me now
I need a hero to save my life
A hero will save me just in time

I need a hero to save my life
I need a hero, just in time

(Sephiroth)

Save me just in time
Save me just in time

(Cloud and Tifa)
Who's gonna fight for what's right?
Who's gonna help us survive?
We're in the fight of our lives

(Tifa and Kisa)

And we're not ready to die

(Sephiroth and Kisa)
Who's gonna fight for the weak?
Who's gonna make 'em believe?
I've got a hero, I've got a hero

Living in me

(Cloud and Sephiroth)
I'm gonna fight for what's right
Today I'm speaking my mind
And if it kills me tonight

(Tifa and Kisa)

I will be ready to die

(Sephiroth)
A hero's not afraid to give his life
A hero's gonna save me just in time

The crowd was going berserk at this point. Cloud was practically beaming at Sephiroth, who smirked at him.

"Let's take this home!" Cloud exclaimed.

(All)

I need a hero to save me now
I need a hero, save me now
I need a hero to save my life
A hero will save me just in time

(Sephiroth)
(I need a hero)
Who's gonna fight for what's right?
Who's gonna help us survive?

(Cloud)
(I need a hero)
Who's gonna fight for the weak?
Who's gonna make 'em believe?
I need a hero

(All)

I need a hero

"SOLDIER, LET ME HEAR YOU!!" Sephiroth shouted.

(Band + Crowd)

A hero's gonna save me just in time!

The crowd erupted into cheers and applause as the song ended, Zack cheering at the top of his lungs. Sephiroth pulled his lover into an embrace.

"We did it, Seph!!" Cloud cheered over the crowd.

Genesis and the girls joined them in a group hug. Sephiroth looked at Cloud before capturing his lips in a kiss. The crowd whistled and cheered as the scene unfolded. Sephiroth and Cloud both had a hero... and that's each other.


That song was from Skillet. What did you think?

WWE Fans should recognize it from the 2010 Royal Rumble as their theme song.

Anyway, review and tell me what you think!
