A/N: Okay, this story is set 5years after
Ultimecia I hope you like it. Please read and review!
Squall flicked through the
photo album, his eyes skimming across the pictures occasionally pausing at one
then moving on. Squall’s eyes stopped suddenly at a picture of him and Rinoa at
Balamb pier. Rinoa grinning into the camera, himself frowning slightly.
Squall sighed those days
were over now Rinoa left two years after Ultimecia, she couldn’t live like a
SeeD so had left. They had stayed in contact but they were no longer close like
they used to be. Rinoa wrote a few letters now and then but no more than
She had wanted Squall to go
with her but he had refused too scared to leave the safety of SeeD. So they had
ended, both of them had moved on but now well Squall was tired of it he wanted
to feel loved again by the one who loved him.
Squall picked up her most
recent letter, and as always at the bottom she had asked him to leave SeeD, to
come and live with her – she always did, just in case he one day he would.
A knock on Squall’s door
interrupted his train of thought. He opened the door to Quistis.
“Come on Squall, its time.”
Said Quistis sadly as she lead him to the ballroom, which had been changed so
everybody in the garden could sit to watch the commander’s speech.
Squall took a deep breath
and he stepped up to the podium, he shuffled his notes and addressed the waiting
audience as he gave his final speech, his leaving speech.
This is a message
I got something to say
Squall walked solemnly out
of the garden this was the end, the end of everything he had worked for, the
garden had lost it first commander but Squall found he didn’t care. He looked
back to the crowd waving to him; he gave a final wave and turned around.
This is me walking
this might get away
my taste of freedom
“Goodbye” he whispered and
walked off into the sunset.
Squall sat on the train
looking at of the window as the trees rushed by, Squall expected to feel scared
at the fact that he was leaving his friends, his job, everything he knew for a
girl hew hadn’t seen for three years. Yet to his surprise he felt no of it just
calmness. It was as if he was realizing finally who and what he was.
Before when he made
decisions he felt manipulated and pressure into doing it but this time, he did
it for himself not anybody else.
This is a calling
if love is a season
you are my
you are just the ice
layin' on my finger
Squall adjusted his eyes to
the sudden brightness as he stepped off the train in Timber. He glanced around
the small town; the pet hop had been replaced with a clothes shop and the shop
next to it was a newsagents. He picked up a paper started walking again.
He kicked a stray stone out
of the way as he glanced at the paper. He smirked as he read article about him
leaving. It had decided that he had a young mistress in Esther who he had met
when visiting the new president and she was finally able to break the cold spell
that was cat over the commander’s soul.
Squall looked up and found
he had reached the edge of Timber; he gazed at the falling sun that was setting
behind the horizon. He smiled and walked out of Timber across the golden
Oh, in my tomorrow
fields are golden
and all the papers say
that the spell's been broken
Squall yawned as he trudged
along another field. The night had set in now and the light was fading fast.
Squall sped up as he began to see lights in the distance, he would be in Winhill
soon and then he could see her again. Squall felt warmth come over him as he
thought about finding her again.
To my future lover
will find you
'cause you have the power
of truth behind you,
Rinoa looked up as she heard a knock on the door. She put down
her book and opened the door.
“Hello Rinny,” Rinoa gasped
as she saw a dark figure at the door, a scare running diagonally across his
face, two piercing blue eyes stared at her out of the darkness.
“Squall!” cried Rinoa as he
flung her arms around him. “Why are you here?”
“I said goodbye to SeeD.”
“You did that?” asked Rinoa
as she drew away from him.
“You’re more important I
finally realized that; I loved you the wrong way. I was scared of loving you and
now I realize if I want you I can’t be afraid of it. It was growing all the time
but I never let it show. So now I’m going tell straight up that I love you and
nobody I going to love you the wrong way again.”
This is a message
nobody's gonna love me the wrong way again
this is a
not a conversation
this is my overdue goodbye
Rinoa smiled through her
tears as she wrapped her arms around him. “I love you Squall. I jut need you to
say goodbye to the old you.”
“I said goodbye,” whispered
Squall triumphantly as Rinoa lips touched his.
I said goodbye baby
come on and sing with me
one more time, one more
