It had been three months since the 99th emperor, Lelouch Vi Britannia, had been killed by Zero. Nunnally now ruled as the Empress and she was working on making a better world, just like her now-deceased brother had. The world was at peace and the hatred for the Britannian Empire was slowly beginning to fade. Every day Nunnally thanked her brother for the peace he had helped create.
Somewhere in the Countryside
C.C. and Lelouch were living peacefully in a small village in the middle of nowhere. Lelouch had not only survived but he was now an immortal. When he had killed his father, Charles Zi Britannia, he had gained his code. However, he didn’t lose his geass because he hadn’t killed the immortal that had granted him geass, C.C. He had done something no one before him had, he had received code geass. He and C.C. had decided to go into hiding and if ever the world was in chaos they would reappear and, once again, change things for the better. The only thing Lelouch regretted was the pain he had caused his sister. He knew that his “death” had greatly saddened her but it was necessary.
One Year Later
“I’m bored,” Lelouch whined.
“You’ve said that a million times by now. Can’t you just find something to do and stop annoying me?” C.C. complained.
“I can’t go into any cities since people would recognize me and there’s nothing to do out here! I’m even bored with chess since I beat you every time. Nothing changes. I miss all the battles and strategies,” he complained.
“Well, you’ll just have to hope another evil empire rises up soon,” she said.
“Well, I don't want that to happen too soon. The world hasn’t been at peace long enough yet,” he said.
“Well then stop complaining and enjoy the peace.”
“Fine, whatever,” he grumbled.
A Couple Months Later
“I’m still bored,” Lelouch whined again.
“If you’re so bored then go conquer a country or something,” C.C. snapped.
“Hmmm, maybe not something that drastic but there is something I could do for entertainment...”
“I don’t care what it is just as long as it makes you stop whining,” C.C. said.
“Okay, but I’ll need your help to set it up,” Lelouch said with a grin.
Several Days Later
Suzaku had stripped off the Zero costume and changed into normal clothing. He sighed and stretched out on his bed. Things had been difficult recently and it was wearing him out. What would you do in this situation, Lelouch? He wondered to himself.
Suuuzaaakuuu... an eerie voice said.
What was that? I could’ve sworn I heard Lelouch... It must be because I was just thinking about him... he thought. Suddenly Lelouch came gliding into the room dressed in white.
“Suzaku, I’ve come baaack from the graaaave to teeell you something,” he said with an eerie voice.
“Lelouch! I’ve missed you so much! What did you want to tell me? Is it a warning? Or a message from Euphie?” Suzaku asked.
“Nooo, I want to ask you something. Why, whyyy did you kill meeee?” Lelouch moaned.
“What? You told me to! It was part of the plan!” Suzaku exclaimed.
“The plan was for you to faaaake my death, not actually run me through with that swoooord!” Lelouch exclaimed.
“What!? But why didn’t you tell me!?” Suzaku asked in shock.
“I did! But obviously you weren’t paying atteeeention!” Lelouch scolded.
“I’m so sorry! I didn’t know! Please forgive me!” Suzaku begged. He fell to his knees and started sobbing. “Is there any way I can atone for this?” he asked.
“I would say kiiiill yourself but my stuuuupid geass power keeps you from doing that. I guess you can just live with the agony and regret of knowing you killed your best friend,” Lelouch said cheerfully, then he left.
“Well, that was amusing. That was payback for all of my plans he ruined in the past,” Lelouch said as he took off the ghost makeup.
“A bit cruel don’t you think?” C.C. said.
“Yes, but I’ll make sure to make another ‘ghostly visit’ and tell him it was a joke,” he said with a grin.
“Don’t you think he’ll figure you out?” she questioned.
“Maybe, I’ll just make sure he doesn’t tell anyone,” he replied.
“So, please tell me this prank of yours amused you enough that you won’t complain for several more years?” she asked with a glare.
“Um, yeah, sure,” he said nervously.
Two Months Later
Lelouch had paid another visit to Suzaku to make him feel better. Suzaku had been so relieved he didn’t even get a little suspicious. “I’m bor-” Lelouch began. He quickly cut himself off when he noticed the look C.C. was giving him.
“What were you about to say?” C.C. asked quietly.
“I’m bursting! Because of all that pizza I ate,” he said quickly.
“Good, because if you were to say that other thing, I would tie you up and stuff you in the closet for a week. You’re immortal, you can live without food,” she said menacingly.
“I’ve got to go to the bathroom,” he said as he hurriedly left the room. She glared after him and then sighed and plopped onto the couch.
I’ve got to admit, even I’m beginning to feel... bored, she thought reluctantly. The Black Rebellion was the most exciting thing that had happened to me in years she thought with a sigh. Lelouch warily walked back into the room. “I’m not going to harm you,” she assured him. He sighed with relief and then sat down next to her.
“I’m thinking about... well, I’ve decided to visit Nunnally,” he said finally.
“As another prank?” she asked.
“No, I just want to talk to her. Unlike me, she will die someday. I want to see her again before she does,” he said sadly.
“What are you going to do when she does die? Are you going to lose the will to live like last time?”
“No, I’m prepared. Eventually, the world will forget my face and I won’t have to hide anymore, then I can make new friends.”
“But can they replace your little sister?”
“No, no one could ever do that. But hopefully, they will make it bearable,” he said.
“I will always be here for you, Lelouch. You know that don't you?” C.C. said softly.
“Yes, and I thank you for that. You, just like me, won’t die. At least I know I’ll have you by my side forever,” he said with a smile.
“I never thought I’d hear you say that,” she said.
“Neither did I. Don’t think I’m going soft, though. If ever there is another war, I’ll return to my cold, calculating self,” he said with a smirk.
“Of course,” she said simply.
Several Days Later
Someone knocked on the doors of Nunnally’s chambers. “Who’s there?” she asked.
“Someone wishes to see you, he says he knows you personally,” the messenger said.
“Tell him I’ll meet him shortly,” Nunnally said. She got ready and then headed out the door. She rolled into the room only to gasp in shock.
“Long time no see, little sister,” Lelouch said with a smile.
“L-Lelouch! How did y-you...?” she stuttered.
“Survive? That’s not important right now. I’ve come to visit you. I’ve been in hiding,” he said.
“I’m so glad!” she cried.
“I want you to know, you can’t tell anyone about this. Also, I can’t do this often, it may be years before you see me again,” he said sternly.
“That’s alright, I’m just so glad you’re alive!” she sobbed. He hugged her and then sat down.
“So what have you been up to lately?” he asked. She giggled and then they began to talk. They reminisced about the old days when they lived at Ashford Academy together.
“Won’t you tell me how you’re alive?” she asked.
“It’s a rather long story. I guess I can explain it,” he said. He told her everything.
“That’s amazing! But, I wish I were like you. Then we could be together forever,” she said sadly.
“I’m sorry, I knew it would hurt you if I came, maybe this was a mistake...” he said.
“No! I’m so much happier now, never regret coming here!” she exclaimed.
“Thank you, sis,” he said. He started to leave.
“You’re going so soon?” she asked.
“Yes, I was able to use geass on these guards so they wouldn’t recognize me, but I don’t want to risk too much of a chance of being seen,” he said.
“Goodbye,” she said.
“Goodbye, Nunnally,” he said softly as he left.
