Final Thoughts, Quistis
By Geo [ 12-13-00 ]


She stands there on the balcony, looking at the star-filled sky, thinking of the past. Tears begin to form in her blue eyes... and they fall when she remembers the time with her friends... a time filled with fun, laughter, danger, sorrow, and a forgotten childhood. She begins to slowly walk back to the gala celebration, a party to celebrate all the graduates of SeeD, but she, however, has no reason to rejoice. For she has just lost those dearest to her, her friends... the closest thing she's ever had to a family. She straightens the hairpin holding some of her golden blond hair... and begins to walk towards the bar. She sits on a chair and asks the bartender for a drink. He knows she's underage but realizes her pain and smiles. He slides her a drink, she nods and begins to slowly sip.

She wants to cry and shout out in anger... but she is Quistis Trepe, considered the most powerful person in SeeD and not one to let others know her sorrows. She's 18 now and considered to be the best instructor in SeeD. Her missions, though dangerous, have brought her together with people she would later consider friends, even family. The eldest member in her group, Quistis can remember everything that happened... from their time at the orphanage as mischievous kids to their epic and heroic battle with an evil sorceress, a battle that ended it all. She sighs and heads back to the balcony, drink in hand. She stares down at their floating school, Balamb Garden, swaying against the beautiful ocean below. More tears form in her eyes. She'll always be reminded that she is the lone survivor.

Even with their combined efforts, she was the only person able to stay alive... feeling disappointed that she lived... she who had no family or loved ones. More and more tears form, until she is almost flooded. She pulls her whip out of it's place on her belt and grips it tight. This is the weapon that saved her from death more than once. She smiles then throws it over the balcony... watching it splash in the ocean far below. She takes one more sip of her drink and then lays it on the nearby table as she steps up onto the rail of the balcony. She looks up and sees a full moon... and suddenly she feels as if the moon's beams can make her invicible. She smiles again... wipes the tears from her eyes... and jumps.
