[Pairing/Character]: Seifer/Squall
[Theme]: Saint
[Rating]: G
[Summary/Warnings]: She didn't feel like much of a saint

Everybody called Edea Kramer a saint for putting up with those two boys. One boy – a bully, a trouble maker, causing everyone grief. The other – an antisocial, temperamental hermit. But in both of them she saw something very special.

She knew one day that these two children would shape the fate of the world. That one day these two boys would change the world and their lives forever. She watched them together everyday, growing stronger, play fighting with wooden swords, reading books on Knights and Sorceresses, knowing it was only preparing them for what lay ahead. It broke her heart to see the two boys sat on the beach building a giant sandcastle together with such an unknowing innocence to what the future held for them.

She didn't feel like much of a saint, knowing that one day one of these boys would lose everything and one would gain everything because of her involvement. She hated knowing that this budding friendship would be destroyed as the boys grew older. One boy would fall to darkness, the other would rise to victory.

When the day came that she took her Knight for Ultimecia, it pained her to see the look of sadness and desperation in Squall's eyes as he was helpless to stop Seifer leaving. All Edea could do was hope Squall was strong enough to do what needed to be done and that maybe, just maybe when all was said and done, the broken pieces of a childhood friendship could be put back together.

Thank you! It's nice to hear positive feedback o this one, becuase I almost didn't post it, there's something about it I don't like, and I don't know what.
