Wow before the dark by keichama Wow before the dark by keichama
When he realized, Chaos unleashed, and Valhalla merged with the real world, he was about to lose hope, to lose himself once again...
Than he find her... sleeping her dreamless eternal chrystal sleep on Etro's throne...
And suddenly her chrystal rose appeared right before Hope's eyes...
As he carefully took it into his hands, he felt icy radiating from the chrystal...
It was was Lightning's heart inside his palms...frozen by the L'cie curse and all the pain... she was lost inside, he felt it.
The freezing coldness slowly reached his own heart as well
He felt a bitter taste in his mouth, a tear flowing down on his cheek.
As he slowly lifted up the eidolit, silent whisper escaped from his lips, they formed the words without thinking...
"-Even...even if you think now, that everything is lost... look, it's not over yet.
As long as I'm here... as long as I live, I try to...I can be your last hope.
As his lips touched by the chrystal petals, he closed his eyes, his voice breaking in a painful sigh
"-Just come back... I begging you!"
Than he lifted his gaze in the throne again:
The chrystalic surface of Lightning's majestic statue reflected in his eyes again, his heart filled with newborn determination.
"Until that time, It's my turn now to look after you!"
And with a faint smile in his lips, he pull closer the rose eidolith to his chest.
"-You can get this back... when you return!
I promise that!"

Why I have the feeling, Hope have a strange resemblance to Chace/Jesse Spencer from Dr House?? Am I the only one?? :O
