The Nature of Love
DISCLAIMER: I don't own Golden Sun, Golden Sun: the Lost Age, or the upcoming sequel (which I'm going to ignore for the sake of this fic). All characters and stuff relating to the Golden Sun franchise belong to Camelot Software Programming and everyone else who actually worked on this.
WARNING: This is a yuri (girl's love) fic. If you have some sort of homophobia, or that you're too young to read this, go away now or 'I'll hunt you down and gut you like a fish!' (jk about the last bit, but seriously, go away because I don't have time for flame wars)
A/N: Looks like we're at the end of the road here people. It's kind of sad that I will have to end this here, considering I had so many options to take this. The arc I had done however, will not allow me to do so. This much I can say though, there will be a possible sequel, just not in near future. So now, the response to the reviews:
Jlargent: Thanks a lot for your review. Haven't seen you in a while, but thanks dude. As I said before, there maybe a possible sequel, but it won't be after this story unfortunately. I definitely would like to see how the others are going to think about this however, so it should be fun when I get to it; hopefully it will be a little longer too.
D: Thanks for the review, you really made me crack up; I swear that's so funny! I'm not sure if this is supposed to be a flame review by a troller or what, but it probably failed seeing that I'm more amused than angry.
Kingdom Of Pain: Thanks again dude, and thanks for the spelling corrections. I'll fix that in the near future, but for now I'll leave them there. Yes, we are pervs, but as long as it doesn't translate to our real lives then I think I can be as pervy on paper as I want. And thanks for the sentiment, I appreciate it.
CrazyNinjaPenguin: Again, thanks for the review. Yeah, I fixed the letter part; I guess I was in such a rush I forgot to finish the letter. Maybe I'll improve it a bit more later, but that is good enough for now.
Well, that's all for reviews, considering that's all of them. And now, unfortunately, the final chapter of Nature of Love...
What a wonderful night I've had with Jenna, it made me feel like I was finally free, free of my burden of silence. The chains of emptiness were finally broken and I could be myself once more. If there was anyone I would live with forever, it was Jenna. If I wanted to grow old and die, I would do that with Jenna. She is my light and I shall be hers.
I honestly expected her to be a little more aggressive, but I'm glad she decided to let me be the one to take charge a little. I don't know what happened last night, but I guess that's just the pains of being a virgin I suppose. Funny that Jenna didn't have that same pain as me, I wonder if she had any experience with girls after all...I shouldn't worry about it too much; after all, it was before I confessed to her so no harm done, I hope.
"Wi-, will you go back to Imil, with me?"
"I don't know Mia, it's cold over there."
"It won't be that cold, not with you there anyway."
"Let's get cleaned up first, okay? I also have to leave a letter to my family so they don't think I got kidnapped or ran off."
"Okay then, sweetie."
Jenna and I were in her bathroom after finishing the letter to her family. Her bathtub filled with water when I casted my Douse Psyenergy and she had just finished heating the water with her Blaze Psyenergy when she used it with a small candle. While we relaxed in the soothing warm water, she asked me something I didn't expect.
"Hey Mia, do you want to have children?"
I blushed profusely at that statement. While I was fond of children, especially the ones who were my apprentices before the Lighthouse Crisis began, I never thought of having children.
"Well..." I began, blushing once more. "I would love to, but how would that be possible considering we're both girls?"
Jenna crawled towards me through the water and with her arms held my head so that my forehead was against hers. "I have a few ideas," she said with a giggle. At first, I had no idea what she meant, then I thought about it and was surprised.
"You mean, you're...?"
"No silly, I'm not pregnant," Jenna huffed. "How could think of such a crazy idea like that?"
"Well, you winked at me, like-"
"Aye, Mia, Mia, Mia," she nodded her head as she came closer to peck me on the lips. "I meant adopting one of our own."
"Well, you could've told me that instead of hinting something that made me think that way," I replied before Jenna gave me another kiss, then splashed some water on my shoulder. I giggled and splashed some water on her face. We both laughed and splashed water on each other before we heard the bathroom door open. We both turned to the open door and screamed.
"Wha-, what are you doing her, Felix!" Jenna shouted, intense rage and embarrassment showing up in her face while hugging me closely so our chests were covered.
Felix backed off in surprise and shock, "Erh, sorry, I didn't know you two were having a moment there. Just got back from a training session."
"YOU PERV!" Jenna exclaimed as she threw a bar of soap at Felix, who managed to deflect it by closing the door in time. He opened the door just a crack, but enough so he couldn't see us, but mostly so he wouldn't get hit by Jenna's assault.
"It was a simple mistake, sis," he said with sincerity, "never knew you were in there, you should've locked the door. By the way," he said, his attention towards me, "finally glad you were able to get enough strength to tell her yourself, Mia. Looks like it wasn't as hard as you thought it was, was it?"
As Felix closed the door, Jenna relaxed once more and looked at me. "Looks like you were right about that then," Jenna sighed, her arms crossed behind her head. "Regardless, we're here now, aren't we?"
"Yep," I finally managed to say, "and I'm glad I'm finally with you." We pulled in for another long kiss as the warm bathwater surrounded our bodies.
It was already noon when I woke up. As I rubbed my eyes, Jenna was already up and awake, putting away her clothes and other necessities. With the blanket still covering my topless chest, I watched her look at me and smiled.
"Hello honey, decided to wake up then?" she asked politely.
"Eh, how long was I asleep?" I asked her.
"About 10 hours now," she answered.
"And when did you wake up?" I asked her.
"Just a few minutes ago" she answered with another smile, as evidenced as she only had her undergarments on.
"Eh, you need help with that?"
"No, I'm fine. Besides, don't you have your clothes to pack?"
"Oh my goodness, I got to check out in 10 minutes! Where's my clothes?"
"Over there," she pointed to the corner of her bureau.
After barely getting my clothes on and heading over to the inn as fast as I could, I gathered up all my belongings and as I headed out of the room, Issac was at the doorway.
"He-, hello, Issac," I stuttered through my shock.
"I take your night went well?" Issac asked with a mischievous grin.
"Erm, well, wh-, why do I need to tell you anyhow?" I stammered.
Issac just laughed and said, "If only you could see how embarrassed you look when I asked you. No worries, Jenna told me already."
"Wait, what! She told you?"
"Yeah, she came over to my house and asked me if that was my doing, which of course I said yes," he answered with a frown, then showed me his cheek which was red with the imprint of an outstretched hand. I couldn't help but laugh.
"She slapped you!" I managed to say before laughing again.
"Yeah, yeah, laugh it up" Isaac sighed.
As soon as I was able to calm down, Isaac took a small box from his knapsack and gave it to me.
"What's this?" I asked.
"Look for yourself" he said with a stern look.
I opened the box and found a Golden Ring. I looked at him and he gave a stern nod.
"Well, this is surprising, but you know I-"
"I'm not proposing to you, Mia" growled Isaac. "That is for you to give to Jenna."
"Ah, don't worry about me, I managed to get one myself, see?" as he flashed his Golden Ring to me on his ring finger. I gasped in surprise that he already had a fiance.
"So, who is it?" I asked in excitement, wanting to know who it was.
"Feizhi, who else?" he answered.
"Oh, you two must be happy together!" I squealed in.
"Yeah, I guess" he shrugged. "Problem is that we're not going to get married here, which means my folks will have to travel to Xian. The people there however, cannot seem to get their act together and fix the godforsaken road," he finished with irritation in his voice.
"Oh, I'm sorry to hear that."
"It's cool, though I appreciate your words of comfort." He got out of the doorway, letting me pass. "Well, see you around, I suppose."
"Wait!" I shouted before walking over to him and kissed his forehead. "Thank you, for everything."
"Don't mention it," he shrugged. As he walked down the stairway, he shouted, "I mean it too! Feizhi's going to get jealous if she found out that out that you kissed me on several occasions."
I giggled at the thought of Feizhi chewing poor Isaac out and went down the stairway myself.
Jenna and I finished loading up the travel wagon Jenna's family managed to rent for us before taking one last look at the town of Vault. I'm definitely miss everyone here, especially Isaac and Felix. It's too bad Garet isn't here to see us off, but his sister Kay was there, as was Felix and family, and Isaac and his family.
"Well, should we get going?" Jenna asked me before kissing my cheek as she climbed on top of the wagon to sit ahead of our luggage, which was surprisingly light.
"Well, guess we'll be going everyone," I said before bowing to them.
Everyone gave a simultaneous "goodbye!" and I climbed on to the wagon and sat beside my sweetheart.
"Goodbye! Take care of each other!" Kay shouted.
"You're part of the family now, so take care of my daughter okay Mia?" her teary-eyed mother cried out.
"I will!" I shouted back.
"Take care of yourselves now," Isaac's father added.
"We will!" Jenna quipped.
"Don't anything happen to my little sis, okay, Mia?" Felix added, much to Jenna's embarrassment as evidenced by her face turning red.
"I will, Felix" I answered back, giggling.
Isaac looked at me and we were staring eye-to-eye. Then he winked at me and moved his lips. At first I thought he was messing with me, but then I realized what he was really saying and I nodded. A smile crept on his face in satisfaction and they all waved goodbye as the wagon took off. I took one last look at them before hearing a familiar voice.
"Hey, you aren't going to leave without saying goodbye to your old pal, are you, Mia?"
I turned to my right to see Garet, of all people! Not to mention that he was riding a Wonder Bird!
"Hey Garet, nice of you to fly by!" Isaac managed to yell out.
"Yeah, I meant to return a few days ago, but I got hurt back in Inlet Cave!" Garet yelled back, "well, until this fella saved my life!"
"Wait, so you tamed it?" yelled Jenna.
As if to answer her question, the Wonder Bird jerked back and forth, causing Garet to almost fall off, but he managed to hang on. He chuckled a little and said, "More or less, he's a good fella!"
"Well, so long Garet!" I yelled out.
"You two lovebirds be careful now!" Garet yelled back.
Stunned, I yelled back, "How did you know about me and Jenna?"
"It's pretty obvious, isn't it?" Garet yelled back before taking off that ridiculous cowboy hat.
"Goodbye, Garet!" Jenna yelled out.
"Heh, goodbye, Jen-woah, how do you land this thing!" Garet struggled as the Wonder Bird bucked again, much to the enjoyment of everyone else as evidenced by their laughter.
As soon as Vault was out of sight, I took out the box that Isaac gave me out of my robe.
"What's that?" Jenna asked.
I opened it and revealed the Golden Ring. I picked it up and put it on Jenna's ring finger on her left hand. "Jenna, will you be mine, forever and always?"
Tears already swelled up in her eyes and she bearhugged as she said, "Yes, of course I'll marry you, Mia!"
"Ma-, ma-, marry! Well, uh, are you sure we can-"
"Of course, sweetheart!" Jenna's face brightened.
"But what will the-"
"Ah, who cares what people think, remember? It's the nature of love at work."
I faced her and our lips met. How easy I forget, "of course, the Nature of Love."
End of Nature Of Love
A/N: Aw, we finally come to the end of a sweet story! I think I'm gonna cry *sniff* nah, just yanking your chain! But seriously, this story is probably the first romance fic that can actually be called a romance fic; instead of the straight-up sex, I tried to build it up a bit (not much, but it still works).
Well, that's all for my Author's Notes! Thanks for reading! Don't forget to review! And don't worry, I'll put up a separate chapter to respond all your reviews you give after this story is finished.
Oh, and I decided that there will be a sequel in the near future after all ;). Well, not in the near, near future, but there will be a sequel, don't you worry!
