Gavin stared at them, still retaining his shadow-beast form. "What 'Ultimate Power' do you think I'm talking about?"
JR suddenly looked at Gavin's monstrous form and face-palmed. "Right, I get it now."
Suddenly, Gavin collapses to the ground, screaming out in pain. Looked behind him, everyone saw Lord Gavin, sinking into his shadow. He wasn't merging with him any more, he was taking possession of his body! Char heard Kathrina scream out inside her. It was too late to help him. Once Lord Gavin had entered Gavin's shadow, Gavin's cries of pain ceased and he fell on the ground, gasping for air.
Suddenly, dark power shifted around him as the massive, dark shape of a scythe appears out of nothing. Gavin took the blade and stood tall above the others. They cowered together under his massive form. "Fear me..." growled the possessed Gavin beast. "Feed me your fears..." Raising the blade above his head, he aimed to bring it down upon them all with a single, killing blow.
Suddenly, Char jumped in front of the group, shielding who she could with her body and not her power. "CHAR!" screamed Insanity. "WHAT ARE YOU DOING!?" Char ignored her as she stood prepared for the worst. Closing her eyes, she waited for the strike to come, hoping what she was doing wouldn't get herself killed.
Gavin wasn't hesitating...Gavin was still going to kill them!
Suddenly, Char felt something rush out of her body. Opening her eyes, she saw Kathrina split from her and fly out towards the beast before her. Kathrina tackled Gavin's wrist, stripping the scythe from his hand. Swiftly, she spin around and sliced his head clean off.
There was a gurgled noise as Gavin's form fell to the ground, his head joining it there. As waves of darkness poured from the dieing monster liked water from a broken dam, Kathrina was caught up in the massive storm as it rose endlessly into the sky. As the darkness was pulled from Gavin's dieing body, his form returned to human. His head somehow back on his shoulders.
Once all the darkness had vanished, the Earth stood still. Everyone stood still.
It was Char first that rushed out to Gavin, soon followed by everyone else. Char rolled him over and saw the weak gaze of his golden-green eyes. She called out his name, trying to get him to speak. Trying to prove he was still alive.
"Th-thank...you...everyone..." Gavin's voice was weak, but not dieing. Char grabbed him in a hug that pushed the air from his lungs. Gavin gasped and nearly blacked out. After that, they helped him to his feet and he looked again at the people surrounding him as something new. Something good.
"Thank you, everyone. My powers have been vanquished. I am finally free from them." said Gavin.
"And you're alright?" asked Sephiroth. Gavin nodded.
Char then noticed something sparkling on the ground under Gavin's foot. She bent down to pick it up. It was a large, beautiful emerald. Inside it sparked the energy of lightning. She handed it to Gavin and asked, "If your power's gone, then what's this?"
Gavin took the emerald and smiled. "This is all that remains of my power. It was created when Kathrina...disappeared...it was forged out of her affection for me." Suddenly, the emerald disappeared in his hand. Everyone looked to Gavin as his eyes flashed green a moment. "It appears I have a fraction of my powers back, but no desire from it's presence any longer"
"So you're good now?" asked Insanity.
Gavin smiled. "As good as I can be."
Char then nudged Gavin and asked, "By the way...why did you want me for everything?"
Gavin couldn't meet her eyes, but said, "I needed Kathrina to be strong. You are strong. You would do."
Char nudged him again. "Why?"
"Because you needed to be able to resist my control, you needed to be able to fight me."
"Because I didn't want to see harm come to any of you."
Char smiled. "Why?"
Gavin blushed and looked at the others. They all had backed up, giving them both room. Gavin looked to JR as he said, "Don't mind us. Every story needs a romantic ending." Gavin looked flustered and continued to blush.
Char then lightly pushed him away and said, "What? With him? Not in your life." As she smiled, she shrieked out as Gavin smacked her rear and took off, running like a madman. Char screamed out at him, "OH YOU B*STARD!" as she too took off after him, smiling as she went.
Everyone watched the two run off together as JR said, "How cute...Anyone up for watching 'Scott Pilgram'?" Everyone looked at each other and nodded. "Alright then. Back to my place."
With that, ended the darkness of Lord Gavin and began to light of a new day.
In no way does this NEED to end, though it can if you want, but if not then leave me good for now, alright guys?
THAT'S LORD GAVIN TO YOU!
