Ranma could tell he would be too late to interrupt and stop Saffron's attack from going off and worse yet he could see that Saffron knew it too. That self-satisfied, I am superior to you smirk was making him sick. The problem was that he seemed to be right; Ranma was beginning to worry that this time he would not come out on top. However, that was not going to stop him from trying, even if he had to die trying at least the ass would remember him.

Ranma died at Phoenix Mountain trying to save his friends and family from Saffron's final attack. While he failed to stop him in time, he did succeed in killing Saffron and destroying his egg when he found out what Saffron's attack had done. With Saffron truly dead, the Phoenix energy needed to go somewhere and the closest and strongest host was the dying Ranma. However, with Ranma refusing to live in a world where everyone he loved was dead and wishing that he could do it all over the nearly sentient Phoenix energy was forced to save him a different way.

Ranma found himself suffering though waves blinding pain, so much pain that he truly wished that he would just die, just to end the agony. Then when he thought that, it could not get any worse, his world started to spin. The spinning began to accelerate becoming faster and faster, until he could feel the farthest edge of his body beginning to pull tighter and tighter. It was at this point that he began to scream again, he screamed until his vocal cords ruptured and still he pushed air past them, the pain still rising in intensity. Then everything went to merciful black.

When he started to come to again he could hear people speaking in the background. "It's a boy!"

"Oh, thank god it survived," a woman's voice said, "I didn't want to be the one to tell the mother that both of her babies had died. I don't believed that she could have lived through that. After the way she talked, how happy she was, to hear that she was going to be a mother and to twins, no less."

"It was a miracle she said, everyone had told her that she was barren after all the treatments she had gone through to save her life after the accident. Now this, at least one of the two survived. I'm just sorry that her daughter did not make it too," a second voice said.

However, with that last word, Ranma concentration gave out, over come by the terrible tiredness that wrapped his body, he drifted into unconsciousness to late to hear the sounds of shocked surprise from the medical staff around him.

"What was that sound?"

"I don't know. Wait, oh my god! It's a live. Doctor, she's alive."

This was an idea that hit me and I felt that I had to get out. I don't know when I will be able to continue it as classes are hitting me pretty hard right now. Nevertheless, I will continue to work on my other stories as time permits. If anyone else has ideas on this or has a great interest in continuing this before I can get back to it let me know. Maybe someone else can give it the life it needs or help me to further it. Thanks again for your support.
