"Something About Us"

"Embrace your dreams.

And, whatever happens,

protect your honor...

as SOLDIER!

Come and get it!"

While Zack was charging against the army he couldn't help with the uneasy feeling he was sensing. Despite all the bravado and the adrenaline rush it was like he knew that he will never let this hill alive. Something inside him was pushing his efforts to fly away, leaving his defenceless friend behind. This was the part inside him that made his heart beating faster every time she smiled at him. There was another par of him, though. A part of his mind, welded to his very soul by the man who had been like his brother. That part of him was telling him to protect the others, event at the cost of his own life. As he began to fight his enemies in a crude battle, a no less cruel combat was happening in his head, rising until all the things in his mind were reduced to a confusing mass of names. Only one name was clear. Aerith.

It might not be the right time
I might not be the right one
But there's something about us I want to say
Cause there's something between us anyway

His enemies were falling around him, and the deadly missiles couldn't hit him. He was faster, stronger... better. But... But, and but, and but, and but... But he was unable to tell her all the things he kept in the dephts of his heart. Oh, how he regret his cowardice now. If he was able to talk to her one more time! But the army was attacking again, and he was growing tired,and his resolve was weakling, and his legs were losing speed, and his arms were losing strenght, and he was losing his chances. His chances to see her again.

I might not be the right one
It might not be the right time
But there's something about us I've got to do
Some kind of secret I will share with you

He wanted to see her again. The battle in his mind was over. His love for Aerith had defeated his honor. All he needed to do was disentangle himself from the fight. But he was too weak to do anymore than stand his ground. As his body was losing his life the regrets were growing inside his heart. Regrets at himself. For didn't take her to see the blue sky; for didn't build her a nicer wagon; for being unable to fullfill his last promise to her; for being unable to grant her greater wish... But over all this for being unable to tell her this words.

I need you more than anything in my life
I want you more than anything in my life
I'll miss you more than anyone in my life
I love you more than anyone in my life

As he was dying one last regret consumed his mind, his heart, his soul.
"Aerith, I love you. With all my heart I want to be yours. To be with you. Forever."
Being unable to told this to her when it was the moment was the only thing he won't forgive himself.


Remember the videoclip of "One More Time"? It continues in the other songs. I saw it and damn if Shep and Stella aren't like Zack and Aerith. So I came with this. My first songfic. Hope you enjoy it!
