Disclaimer: I don’t own them.
A/N: Ok, I wasn’t going to write
more some really bad stuff has been happening at the moment. Its strange how
this story is fitting in with my life at the moment. My step dad flipped and
hurt Willow giving her brain damage damaging her memory so well I’m a bit
angry and distressed at the moment so if this chapter doesn’t make sense
that’s why. Please read and review.
Rinoa twiddled her thumbs in the
waiting area. Squall had been in the operating for six hours now. One hour for
every year see spent looking after him. She was the oldest twenty-three year old
she knew. All her old friends had gone now the group had divided. Zell was the
only one she really knew anymore and he often came to stay with her and offer
support. He was stuck in a wheel chair now a wrong move in a battle took away
any use of his legs.
Irvine and Selphie were separated; Irvine was living
with a young girl called Melieha, he found Selphie to loud and immature and he
hated the life of a SeeD. Selphie was still at SeeD though a bit more bitter
since her split with Irvine. Both of them visited her and Squall but neither of
stayed long. To be honest Rinoa usually wait until they left, they expected her
to solve their problems and always going on about how terrible their life
Quistis. Rinoa hadn’t seen her since she left the Garden. The only
thing they had in common was Squall and now that he was basically gone Quistis
had no reason to visit. The last she heard was that she had quit SeeD and had a
opened a fancy restaurant in Deiling city. You never know after this operation
she might stop by the visit. That is if it was successful.
The surgery he
was having was risking but if it worked Squall would have ALL his memory back.
After the past months Squall had been getting some back but it was distressing
for him. He didn’t know where they came from and they weren’t always happy
Rinoa thoughts were interrupted as Zell gave her a cup of
Squall opened his eyes slightly. Pain ran through the
back of his head and he reached behind his head to try and find out where the
pain was coming from. Squall frowned as he felt that she all his hair had been
shaved off round the back. He moved his head round his head to find his bangs
gone. What the f-?
Memories flooded back to Squall. Rinoa’s gonna kill
me I told her I was wasn’t going to get hurt on this mission. Squall sighed,
god he was tired he hadn’t had hardly any sleep since he started the mission
Rinoa stepped into infirmary, watching Squall’s
sleeping form. Does he remember? Rinoa walked over to him holding her breathe in
anticipation. She sat down silently next to him, running her hand over his
Squall stirred slightly opening one eye. He smiled and opened the
other eye as he recognized the figure above him. He grinned sheepishly. “Sorry
angel I know I promised I wouldn’t get hurt this time but I’m ok
Tears started to flow down Rinoa’s cheeks, happiness filled
her, he remembers! She felt like screaming, shouting telling everyone he was ok
but instead she just smiled.
“You’re back, you
“Remember what?” Squall frowned. What’s Rinoa talking
Rinoa insides froze, he doesn’t know, Rinoa gulped. “Squall
when…oh Hyne…Squall when you got hit on the head it damaged your memory, for
the past six years you’ve had no memory living like a baby. We had to leave
the garden we’ve been living in Winhill. I…” Rinoa trailed off not sure
what else to say. “Squall?”
Squall stared at her; this must be some
sick joke. This can’t be true, I don’t understand. Six years?! This can’t
be real. Squall looked at Rinoa she looked older, he hair now chin length her
eyes held more pain. She was no longer a girl but a woman and Squall had missed
it. He hadn’t been able to protect her he had caused her this pain. “I’m
“It’s ok you’re back now that’s the only thing that
matters.” Rinoa smiled slightly. “I love you.”
Squall stared at her
for a moment taking in what he had heard. “I love you
Squall opened his eyes adjusting them to the sudden
light that was pouring through the windows. He looked to his side to find that
Rinoa had left during the night. Squall sighed as he laid back into the comfy
pillows of the infirmary. As he went over the conversation that he had with
Rinoa last night. So much had happened over the past six years, Zell, Irvine,
Selphie, Quistis they had all changed so much form what he had heard from Rinoa.
Zell in a wheelchair? He couldn’t believe it.
Zell was the only one out
of his friends who had truly stayed at his and Rinoa’s side. He suddenly felt
hatred towards the rest of the group. How could they leave Rinoa to cope with
his on her own?
Squall turned over on his side. He gasped as a sudden
wave of pain rushed over him as memories flashed through his head. Memories of
the orphanage…he could remember. He had got back what the GFs had stolen from
him. He lay still just enjoying remembering not wanting to move in case he lost
what he had longed for as long as he could
I didn't hear you
I wonder how am I still here
And I don't want to move a

corridor ignoring the looks she was getting from passing SeeDs. It was no secret
that their beloved ex-commander was here and was undergoing an operation that
might bring back his sanity. Although no one knew the results yet.
pushed the doors open to the conference room – another new change in the
garden. She looked at the people in the room. Irvine and Selphie were sitting at
the other ends of the room occasionally glancing at each other. Cid was sitting
in the middle, Edea next to him looking anxious, Kiros, Ward and Laguna were
sitting next to them Ward making strange gestures with his hands.
was sitting away from everyone else in deep conversation with her new boyfriend
who was looking greedily at Selphie. Rinoa looked away from him repressing the
urge to punch him. She smiled Zell who was looking at her with concern etched on
his features but broke into a grin as Rinoa smiled at him.
operation was successful, Squall has his memory back, and we will be leaving as
soon as possible. Edea, Zell if you want to come and see him now.” Rinoa
turned sharply. She hated everyone in that room apart from Edea and Zell. She
didn’t want to but she felt so jealous and bitter towards them. They had a
life, they had their loved ones even if they weren’t with them were still
alive, not holding them back not having to watch them become a shadow of what
they once were.
Maybe now it would be different now she had Squall back
maybe she could let them into her life again. It hurt too much
She turned as Zell and Edea came up behind her. “Ok lets go see
Squall sighed deeply, it was so strange seeing Zell in
a wheelchair. When only yesterday they were on a assignment together. Squall
looked up as Rinoa walked back into the room. He smiled weakly at

on the edge of the bed. Running her hands through his short hair.
shut his eyes enjoying the touch. “No, lets just stay like this just let me
enjoy you being here. I don’t ever want to forget you again.”
smiled as she lent over and kissed him lightly. It was like a dream she never
thought they’d ever be like this
I don't want to call my
They might wake me from this dream
And I can't leave this
Risk forgetting all that's
Rinoa stepped out of the room
smiling, he had fallen asleep again but she didn’t mind just him being there,
his old self was enough. She ignored Quistis calling her and walked out of
Garden enjoying the sunlight on her shoulders as she walked down the lane to
Balamb. She knew that he’s recovering wouldn’t be easy and at times he may
forget who she was but she had what she wanted…him. She was whole, without him
she was empty and now she had him back the world was starting to look beautiful
Oh I am what I am
what I want
But I can't hide
I won't go
I can't breathe

probably the last fic I will be doing in a while.
