Underground Stories: Naperic Legacy

By Prasino45

Romance / Adventure

Preface: Cape of Good Hope

Here she stood just like he said. He told her to be here, and she still believed him. That was two years ago, so maybe it didn't matter to him anymore.

It did to her.

She told him that he would be the one to pierce her heart, and it would be okay if it were him that did it. Not anyone else. Nobody else.

The circumstances were different now. They weren't on the same side anymore as fate drove them apart. Their views, their values, and their a long time she blamed him. He wasn't around enough; he always wanted to control her making her believe what she wanted was her decision. That was his orders after all, and he had to abide by them.

In truth, it was all a lie.

Lies were fabricated to make her feel accepted within the home of the very people who wanted her dead- who preferred her dead.

That's when her knight came along and opened her eyes to make her see how controlled her life really was. Her real knight. He offered freedom and liberation. He hated these people as well.

They said when a sorceress loses her knight she goes crazy. Ultimecia apparently did, but she knew she wasn't her. Their fate wasn't the same. It wasn't going to be the same. She wasn't going to let that happen.

Here she stood alone in this field of white and yellow flowers with mountains to the north and the sea to the west. This is where they once made a promise. A place that she believed- she truly believed- would give her prosperity and love. A place now promising her timely death, but she wasn't going to let that happen, either.

She seeks freedom from control. Control brought upon the people who wanted her dead, control from her father's expectations, control from the very people who seek liberation from the oppressive powers that be.

From everything. From everyone.

Liberation was going to come. She was going spread her angelic wings and show the world how strong she really had become. They didn't sprout from her back just yet because she had one last thing to do.

In her mind his words rang out strong and true.

I'll be waiting here. If you come here, you'll fine me. I promise.

A footstep crushed the flowers nearby indicating his arrival. The sorceress turned, and there he was with his blade drawn.

Her ex-knight.

He had kept the promise after all, but he wasn't here to love her. He was here to kill her.


A/N: Welcome to Underground Stories: Naperic Legacy. This is a multi-story series based on Final Fantasy 8. This project started in 2006 when I finished playing the game and had so many unanswered questions. I decided to fill the plot holes myself! I wanted to write a story with a mixture of different elements as well and explore the characters on a deeper level. Particularly Squall and Selphie.

You will see dates and locations posted all throughout the story. I chose to keep the year 2009 just to keep it current with the times in this century.

Anyway, hope you enjoy reading it!


DISCLAIMER: I do not own Final Fantasy 8, even though it would be cool if I did. I do own all the OCs in this story in the later chapters, though.

SandraHan1: This story is very descriptive, with vivid scenes from the very beginning, which made for a good scene setting. I love the symbolism in names, such as “Naysayers”, “Hadd”, etc .
