Chapter 3: Tears of a Warrior

Cloud knew something was about to happen, so he readied his sword, preparing for anything. But the one thing he didn't expect is the one thing that happened.

The Hollow around Sora melted away, revealing Sora asleep and falling towards the ground.

"S-Sora's back…" Cloud lowered his sword as he ran towards Sora.

As he got close, he didn't notice Sora's eyes open. And when he did, it was too late. Sora cut his left arm off and sent him flying backwards, breaking through the wall and sending him into a tree. His blood was flowing from his arm like a river now.

"What? You don't seem happy to see me, buddy" Sora said as an eerie smile spread across his face, "You look… pale. What's wrong?"

Cloud couldn't get up and Sora was steadily walking towards him. Next, out of nowhere a duck and a dog appeared, holding off Sora as best as they could.

"RUN!" The dog screamed at Cloud.

Cloud simply used his sword to help himself up and joining the fight. He ran at Sora, blindly swinging his sword, hoping for dear life that he got a hit. But he wasn't fast enough, and he once again got the wind knocked out of him as he was sent flying backwards into the same tree. Even harder than last time.

He was bleeding from his back now and was trying to figure out how this happened. But when he looked into Sora's eyes, he saw exactly how.

"B-black… eyes…" Cloud was barely able to talk before he passed out.

He was immediately awoken by the sound of clanging metal and… roaring.

"Wh-What is this?" Cloud watched as 13 men in coats attacked Sora and he was fighting back. It didn't even look like he was going all out, "Who are those guys?"

"Hey! He's awake!" He heard in a weird voice.

"Oh, gosh! I thought we lost him for good!"

"Donald? Goofy?" Cloud didn't know where or how he knew these names. What he did know is that he was missing an arm and his back felt like someone had stabbed it multiple times with a rusty knife.

"Do you remember what happened?" one of the men in black coats asked. Cloud looked at him puzzled and the man snapped his fingers. "Sorry," He took off his hood revealing his face and red, spiky hair. "I'm Axel. Who are you and what do you know about what happened here?"

"I-I'm Cloud Strife. And all I know is that I am missing an arm." Cloud looked at what used to be his left arm and remembered Zach as a tear slid down his cheek.

"Can you still fight? Or do we need to get you healed?" Axel asked him.

"I can still fight… I'm a one-handed user anyways." Cloud said picking up his buster blade in his right arm. He noticed Axel looking at him wide-eyed and he laughed and moved towards Sora at astonishing speed just as Sora finished off the last of the men in black cloaks.

"I thought you were dead" Sora said with a strange venom in his voice, "Guess it's just like always. To kill a snake… Cut off its head!" Sora lunged at Cloud, but he outmaneuvered him and slashed Sora in the back, leaving a cut going from the bottom of his neck to his left hip.

"What was that about cutting off the head?" at that point, seeing Sora's eyes, he remembered everything. "So, that's how I ended up with this handicap" He said waving his stub in the air.

Cloud started to move, and he seemed to disappear and reappear in multiple different places at the same time.

"W-What's happening? Where did all this speed come from all of a sudden?" Sora said not noticing Cloud right behind him, ready to strike.

Cloud brought the sword through Sora's chest and out the other side. Killing him and the Heartless inside.

"I'm sorry it had to come to this…" Cloud removed the sword from Sora's gut and walked away.

He met up with Donald and Goofy and told them everything that happened. They seemed sad, but they said that they understood why he did it. No longer was Sora infected by the Heartless.

Axel came over to Cloud to ask if he needed help carrying his sword. But Cloud simply placed his sword on his back and walked off. You could tell by the way he was walking that he was almost done. He said his final words.

"I did it, Zach. I freed this world of evil…" And then he fell on his face, dead.

"What the hell do you find so hard about writing an outro!? It's a moment to connect with your readers before and after reading the actual story!"
They're finished...
"Oh... Hey reader! Did you enjoy? If you liked this story, share it with some friends. Kinda short though, isn't it Sage?"
Oh come on! It's a thousand words!
"Eight hundred. All my chapters have two thousand."
