Chapter Eight: My Future with You
Nightshroud: Sorry for not updating in a while. Here's the final chapter. Enjoy!
Aerith leaned against Leon's arm as they watched the moon from the bailey. It reminded her of the first time they had gone there together, and she had started to realize her feelings for him. She sighed, and he turned his head to look at her.
"Something wrong?" he asked quietly.
"No," she replied. "I was just thinking of how we came this far."
"What do you mean?" he asked.
"Not long ago, I never would have imagined the two of us together. And now here we are, engaged and all."
"Regretting it?" he asked. She turned and wrapped her arms around his neck, kissing him gently.
"Never," she said with a smile. They suddenly heard running and saw Yuffie run through the bailey's entrance.
"Come on, you two! You can't miss your own engagement party!" Yuffie protested. Aerith laughed and laid a hand on Yuffie's shoulder.
"Okay, Yuffie. We'll be right behind you."
Yuffie looked unsure. "Well, okay."
Aerith took Leon's hand and the two walked out of the burrough a few steps behind Yuffie. When they entered Merlin's house, all the familiar faces of their friends, like Cid, Yuffie, Cloud, Tifa, Merlin, the Gullwings, and other citizens of the town, beamed at them.
"Congratulations, Aerith and Leon!" they all shouted. The two smiled, and were soon crowded by people wishing them good luck and all that.
"Congratulations, Leon," said Cloud, shaking his hand. Leon nodded.
"I wonder how long I'll have to wait to say that to you," he replied, looking past Cloud to Tifa. Cloud smiled.
"You'll have to wait and see," he said. Leon laughed and the two separated with a nod. He found Aerith and the two went outside. The cool air felt refreshing.
"It was getting so crowded in there," Aerith said. Leon nodded in agreement.
"I'm...so happy you're going to marry me, Aerith," Leon said softly. Aerith smiled, and the two kissed softly.
"I love you, Leon, and I always will."
"I love you too, Aerith."
Nightshroud: Yay, happy ending. Not my best ending, but I was all sucked out of inspiration for this story, and I just wanted to finsih it. Hope you liked it! 8D
