A/N Just a prologue for now. Anyone have any good al bhed names? Review if you do!


I had asked if I could explore Gualdosalam while we had some free time. No one cared, really. Not because they didn't care but because they didn't seem to have any energy left. The mission had just begun for me and I was excited and bouncing off the walls.

Auron ended up coming with me because he still had energy left. "So…" I started. This was really one of the first times I talked to him. I probably had said 10 words to him in my life. "Shouldn't you be with Yunie?" I asked. He seemed the strictest about the guardian duties, maybe tied with Lulu.

"I could ask you the same thing," he replied, and my eyes shifted downwards. He was right. 10 minutes on the clock and she hasn't been acting like a very good guardian.

"Yah, but you always were like super strict guardian man!" It wasn't a very good reply but it was all I had. He looked at me like I was crazy. His eyes didn't like bug out or anything be he had that, "I think I'm better/smarter/stronger then you look." All condescending you know?

"Oooh, look, a library!" I squealed. Unknown to Auron were the many sides to me. I rushed in with him seemingly reluctantly following behind me. "What?" I asked, "Is the great big legendary guardian afraid of books?" He looked deeply annoyed

He looked deeply annoyed. "No, but you have the attention span of a gnat," was his feeble comeback, I'm not kidding. I rolled my eyes at him.

I picked a random book off a shelf, The History of Spira; I opened it and started to read aloud, "In the yea-," he cut me off right there.

"No one wants to hear it, Rikku." I looked at him. Did he think I was stupid?

"Were the only two people here," Now I looked at him like he was crazy.

"Fine, I don't want to hear it," was his response. This guy did have a short fuse. He seemed easy to tease. I knew now that whenever I had time, I would see how many ways I could make him blow his fuse. I could probably get Tidus to join in sometimes.

I laughed, maybe a little darkly, "Auron this is the start of a beautiful relationship." Well beautiful for me, a little annoying for him. He looked at me like I was crazy again.

A/N Thanks for reading review please! This is my first story so my self esteem is low, constructive criticism is nice but only if it is well intentioned


A/N-again- Anyone coming to this story, I know, it's bad. I will probably re-write it soon. Be patient with me, okay? Anyone who actually liked it, thanks for your support. Anyone getting ready to flame, don't worry, it's taken care of.
