Before You Read

But is it possible there may be a sequel? Only time can tell.

Chapter 11

Finding A Sort Of Peace

"You kept it," Sagiri whispered in disbelief. "You still have the flower necklace I gave you."

Zed looked up and wiped away his tears. "Sagiri?"

"You're crying. You're crying...because you miss me?" Zed stared at her for a moment, then nodded. "You kept the flower necklace I gave you?" Zed nodded again. "You're...still my friend?" Once again, Zed nodded.

Sagiri smiled and ran to him, embracing him in a hug. Zed laughed and placed an arm around her back. "I was afraid you didn't like me anymore," she explained, back away but never leaving Zed's grip. "I was afraid that I did something wrong."

"No, no," Zed sighed, looking down. "It was me. I wasn't...in my right mind, I guess you can say. I was never mad at you, Sagiri. I was just so confused."

Sagiri nodded in understanding. A moment passed, then she asked, "Were you scared?"

Zed looked at her and thought about it for a moment. He was never afraid, and even if he was, he wouldn't bluntly admit it. But truth be told, he had been scared out of his mind. A couple times, really. And the only people who ever knew were Roya and Noa, and maybe Mikki when he had the brains to notice it, but never really anyone else.

He leaned forward and tapped her on the nose. "It's our little secret, okay?"

Sagiri laughed. "Okay, Zed!"

"A couple months, huh?" Zed muttered, staring at the comatose Mikki. Mikki's jet black hair was free from his normal cap. "And how many is a couple?"

The doctor looked down at his board. "Three or four, depending on how his healing process goes."

Zed pulled on his neck to rub the tense muscles. "Damn," he muttered. "I was hoping I could get started soon, but I know Mikki doesn't want to be left out."

The doctor looked at him then looked around the room to see who he was talking to, which was no one. The doctor shrugged and exited the room, leaving Zed to his devices. Zed watched Mikki for a moment, then frowned. How could I have done this to him? Zed closed his eyes and bowed his head.

"Get started on what?" a voice asked.

Zed turned around to find the Princess Zera at the door frame. Zed bit his lower lip, wondering if he should tell. He turned away and muttered, "I'm continuing the Black Light Operation," he said.

Zera was taken by surprise by this but found her posture just as quickly. She walked over to his side and watched Mikki. "You're...following your father's footsteps," she said.

"Yeah."

"And you don't want to get started without your friends."

"Yeah."

Another silence filled the room. "Don't worry," Zera said, breaking the silence. "That clover on his cheek means he's special. It will only take a couple weeks for him to heal completely. One or two...maybe three should cut it."

Zed turned to looked at Zera, ready to ask how she knew that but she was gone. "W-what?" Zed gasped, baffled. "Where did she...What did she...?"

A moment passed, then he smiled. "I guess it runs in the family," he said. He turned back to Mikki, then walked out of the room and wandered to his favorite spot by the Old Windmill. "It's been a while since I've been here." He leaned against the Windmill and watched the day go by.

And a whisper, carried by the wind, was a voice he knew could be none other than Zera's.

"I was right. You're just like your father, and you'll grow up to be a great man just like him."

THE END

After Notes

So, that was the story! Yay! I hope you liked it! So, in the end, everyone lived. Zera went off somewhere, Mikki's gonna live, Zed and Sagiri are friends again. Of course, there are still a few things that haven't been done, such as making up (and probably out) with Roya, Noa, and Mikki and we have no clue what happened to Robes.

BUT!

There is a possible sequel. And I'm pretty sure you can guess what it's gonna be about, but here's a little synopsis so you know what to expect from my next, full-length fanfiction!

The Black Light Operation

Zed sets out on his father's trail, his friends close by his side. He learns more about his father and himself. However, the mystery turns into a great adventure when they are trapped in Calm, hunted by Relic Hunters, and forced to race time before the dual moons collide and the wind is lost forever.

So that is "The Black Light Operation" ready and set for as the next fanfiction. Keep an eye out for it and have a great day.

And remember.
