When The Dust Settled

Title: When The Dust Settled
Characters/Pairings: Seifer, Squall, others
Team: Balamb G
Rating: PG for mention of character death
Word Count: 100
Author's Notes: Seifer POV

After the break-up, when all was said and done, Squall was left alone. The "Orphanage Gang", as Selphie called them, didn't matter - Squall was left alone.

They had chosen their side and their side was with her, Rinoa. Not Squall. They turned their backs on him when he needed them the most. And now they stand around his graveside, with the freshly turned dirt, in their somber black and SeeD uniforms.

He doesn't deserve this, their pity or their regrets. I was there for him, not them. And now? I can't even stand at his burial plot because of them.

Prompt #110

Balamb Garden came in with 20 points and won the trophy for another week! Everyone else was probably at a party. Balamb needs to stop working and maybe party for once!

This week's word prompt: #110 - Death

Every person holds Death in their mind differently. The passing of a soul to the next plane, a dark robed being coming to claim you, a possible rebirth to learn lessons you should have gotten done right that last time around, or something utterly simple as you are no more.
With every thought on what happens then, there is an equally different thought on how that person should be remembered.

Of course, death isn't always the physical! It could be the end of a relationship, or a loss or absence of spiritual life (perhaps there is a secret Priesthood of Hyne just as there might be ones who believe in the Save Symbol being something to save them from a death).

Squall became angry when he heard of news of Seifer's death. Sorceresses can't die until they pass on their powers. Monsters and beasts give a primal cry before fading to nothing. The Save points are everywhere, do others use them and see them as a symbol of a faith? What happens when a GF isn't revived?

Death can be natural or forced and come in many different ways. However you plan to serve it up, make sure it's only 100 words.
