Final Fantasy VII

Terra de Noctum
By Seth Longland [ 07-18-01 ]

The silent breathing of the ocean was all around me...

The still air chopping at what I could feel of my face....

I couldn't see anything but infinite darkness, I couldn't feel anything but the cold air and the numbness of reality....

Where am I?

Had the Highwind landed safely?

Where is everyone?

I can't seem to figure out anything that is going on, nor can I recollect what had happened. I just hope I've won, I hope I have given it my all and perhaps done something for the better...

I did all I could, it was up to the planet to do the rest. If only I had been stronger, I could know what was going on. If I was stronger, I wouldn't be lying here paralyzed and blinded. If I was stronger, I could've resisted all the control and chaos, making things easier on those I have come to love.

If only I was stronger...

But wait! I hear voices!

I hear the laughter of children! I hear the sounds of nature consuming me! Is it... Aeris?

I suddenly can see Aeris perfectly... I see her charming smile, her beautiful eyes, her calming aura surrounds me... Aeris....


Suddenly a bright light blinds me! I lose all sense of thought and I am taken over by this strange light!


What is this place?

Suddenly I feel myself wrapped in warmth, lying in a wonderful bed of flowers. The warm sun shinning on my face, while the sounds of nature gently flow past me. I suddenly feel like I'm in a dream, like everything is an illusion, but as if everything is so real.

Huh? A form blocks the sun. A dark figure stands before me, its hair waving in the gentle breeze, its hand reaching for me.

The figure lifts me to my feet, and smiles... smiles with the smile I was so used to seeing. The glowing green eyes before me, once filled with sorrow and mako, now full of joy, show me comfort beyond belief.

Sephiroth... my savior, my ruiner...

He leads me to the running river of planet energy. Its beauty is beyond description. I now know what has become of me, what has become of the world. At least I have not failed, at least I am comforted here.

He falls into the life stream, his silver hair waving, and his arms extended. He is free...

I reach into the life stream, scared, enchanted, confused, and hopeful....

I shut my eyes and see my flower, Aeris....

I embrace what is before me, reunited with my love, reunited with my savior...

I haven't failed.....

I will always be there for you all...
