Who's John ShinRa?

By AchikaMiyu

Romance / Adventure

Brothers

“You know you don’t have to do this, it’s my job to be there.”

“I understand Mr. President, but it’s my job to protect you. That’s why I must go in case Meteor falls on Midgar,” the blond-haired man said solemnly. “Our father would want you to live to ensure ShinRa’s survival.”

The other blond-haired man visibly shuddered in disgust at the mention of their father. “Very well. But know that I’m doing this for you, not ShinRa. I hope that we’ll meet again,” as he extended his hand.

The other man gripped it firmly and looked sternly at his half-brother, “I want you to hide in my apartment until the incident has been contained and it’s safe for you to return to office.”

“It’ll never be safe for me, but I’ll make sure to take whatever precautions to ensure my livelihood.”

The man released his grip on the other man’s hand satisfied with the answer he received. He turned his back on his half-brother and boarded the helicopter that would take him to Midgar. Straightening his white suit as the helicopter was lifting up into the air; he turned his attention to the window where he saw the fading image of Rufus on the helipad.

Almost all his life he aspired to be like his brother. He even had to dye his hair to become Rufus’s mirror image. He wanted his power, his influence and the attention of their father: things Rufus never lacked. But he wasn’t the son of the late Isabel ShinRa; he was the son of a cheap whore at the Honeybee Inn. A whore who became a princess for one night and thought she gave birth to a prince.

Prince John ShinRa wasn’t even a title he could honorably wear, at least not one that the late President ShinRa allowed him to. His brother was the true prince and he was the fake. All he could do was wear the crown from time to time to protect the real prince from harm. John closed his eyes and concentrated on changed his facade since he had to pose as his brother while in Midgar. It always felt refreshing to have all this power: power that would be his if Rufus weren’t around. His lips turned into a smirk as he grabbed his cell-phone to set a plan in motion that would let him keep his brother’s crown.

Alani Foreigner: I absolutely loved how you created this story. It isn't like the other cliché stories I've ever read. I had just started reading it yesterday and just had to finish it. The main characters are grotesquely awesome and I fell in love with them. If you're into fantasy and stuff I can guarantee that ...

Sabrina Ettey: The story plot is great. I loved it. Just the grammar punctuation and writing style was kind of distracting. But with the smooth polishing, it may shine like a pearl. :)

Ruby0h: Overall I thought your story was really good! It drew me in right away and kept me interested as the story progressed. I loved the character of Kayla being inserted into this story, and the way she affected and shaped the life of the original story into something totally new and interesting. I lo...

nirrmitshah: A truely touching story where you'd be at the edge of your seat for the most time. even though the starting might seem rushed, the story was extremely interesting and entertaining. I think certain parts could be added detailing the Mynds's culture. As well as more details on the Jhanthru history....

Hawkebat: Playing both Kotor I & II and Swtor I found the story line interesting and it held me until chapter 35 Very good story and plot flow until then, very few technical errors. I felt that the main character was a bit under and over powered, as it fought for balance. The last few chapters felt too f...

Roy Jenner: I was pleased to join the action where this B-17 was limping back across the English Channel defying all odds. Obviously written by a person more than familiar with the interior of the Flying Fortresses that were familiar in the skies of Southern England during World War 2. Plenty of action here ...

OpheliaJones: This story took a different kind of spin on the "normal girl lives with definitely not normal guy" plot. The plot points of Frey's father, Liam's family, and Frey's view of Liam's world were good to read. She did not fall in love with him in the first couple weeks. Their lives were not smooth in ...

maewilde25: I am so in love with this story!!! captivated me till the very end, there wasn't a dull moment.

Atractivo Sumit: The story is an amazing blend of what we call natural, plain romance along with subtle emotions and interesting twists. The plot is so beautifully interwoven.
