"When will you people learn?"

With that, Josiah slammed the pole into the ground before him. The ground beneath him rippled, sending out a wave of stone around him.

Seifer timed it just right. He stopped the dance the second the wave launched out, falling into a powerful stab to Josiah's back. There was no time to react. Seifer had made sure of that.

"DIE!!"

Steel burst through Josiah's chest. Without a word he collapsed onto the ground, sword still embedded through him.

Seifer backed away slowly from Josiah's body, panting. The shard that stopped time deactivated, restoring everyone. Seifer stared at Josiah for a long time while on his knees, trying to catch his breath.

"WAIT!" finished Holly's cry.

Her outburst had sent her forward slightly anyway, and with the sudden stop and start, when time resumed, Holly fell to her knees.

She remained still, blinking.

"Huh?" She whispered. For a moment, she was thrown off entirely. It took a few seconds for her to begin to regain a clue.

She looked up and saw Seifer, collapsed to his knees.

God damn it! she thought, as she desperately scrambled to her feet and to Seifer's side.

"What the fu--" She stopped mid sentence. Josiah was on the ground. Impaled. Unmoving.

Confusion overcame her and she began to feel dizzy. She was fuming just a moment ago, it seemed, her chest was heavy with the excitement of the events unfolding. Leon. Her father. Then Seifer running out to face Josiah. All of the energy just disappeared in a matter of a second, it felt like, without winding down.

"Hen-...my...father..." She quickly turned to find him, only for her eyes to scan over Leon's remains as well. "Um..." Everything made her even dizzier and she stumbled back a few steps.

"Josiah...is he...?"

Seifer's world was spinning as much as Holly's. He rose up and embraced her, kissing her on the forehead."It's over. It's over."

He held her close for another minute before breaking the silence, saying "Go to your dad. I'll check on Leon."

Holly didn't even blush when Seifer kissed her forehead this time. The moment he touched her, everything felt okay again. The kiss was comforting.

She looked up at him and nodded. She then turned and searched for her father again, spotting him crumpled in the snow a few feet away. She broke into a run and dashed as quickly as she could. Once again, she dropped to her knees, this time sliding into the position. "Hen-" She stopped herself.

Gently, she lifted his head into her hands and cradled him in her lap as best as she could.

"Dad...you have to wake up..." She says, shaking him gently. Her voice was shaking slightly as she fought back tears. "Don't do this...you...bastard..."

Seifer made his way over to Leon, memories of his old friend rushing through his mind. He stood up to Josiah, and this is what it got him. He closed Leon's open eye, and sat in contemplation for a moment, eyes growing slightly wet.

"Friend, you were the best damn fighter I've ever met. Hope God knows who to take care of up there." Seifer sighed and rose. He couldn't stand this life anymore. He wanted to put the life of the warrior behind him.

"You, my friend, are the one who drove the blade into the demon." As Seifer went to retrive the sword of Josiah's bane, he gasped in fear when he noticed sword and corpse were gone, red-stained snow all that was left.

"HOLLY!" Seifer yelled as he bolted towards her. Shit, shit, shit!!!

Holly heard Seifer call her name. She flinched and spun around to see him coming toward her. Something was wrong...

She couldn't move though. Henry was still breathing...she couldn't leave him.

As she leaned over Henry, covering his body with her's, her wrist grew warm. Her shard.

She shook her wrist so that it the shard would slip into the palm of her hand and she gripped it as tightly as she could. She began to feel warm.

It's working again... she hoped to herself.

Henry coughed, spewing blood on himself, as Holly's shard activated. He lifted his right hand up to her, the rest trapped under the pylon.

"Holly--"

"I...I don't know how to get you out yet..." She whispered, her voice still shaking.

"Just...stay as still as you can. Please." She pleaded.

Seifer eyed the situation carefully as he approached. His main objective was to protect Holly, and to do that, he had to get her out of here. She wasn't leaving without her father, so Seifer's mind went like clockwork. Remembering the words of Old Darren, he amplified the shard in his body and lifted the pylon enough for Henry to get out.

Seifer groaned loudly. The pylon was thick titanium, he hadn't really prepared.

"HHHHHHRRRURRY!"

Holly didn't even take the time to respond to Seifer's aid. The moment the pylon was lifted she sat up.

"Ready?" She asked, without giving Henry enough time to answer. She began tugging until she was able to slide his body out from underneath the pylon. The force from the tug knocked her back a few steps and she nearly fell, but was able to catch her balance.

"It's okay. Drop it." She announced as she slid her father's body a little further away.

Henry lay on the ground, looking up at his daughter.

"Holly, I love you."


The air behind Seifer shimmered, and a figure appeared. Josiah held Seifer's sword in his hand, and he prepared for a killing blow. As he prepared he was lifted into the air. Eric held him in a headlock, several feet above the ground. Josiah jabbed his elbows backwards, and Eric was launched backwards.

Josiah reached out and grabbed Seifer by the collar, and flung him into the side of the building, just next to Holly.


"Enough of this."

He lifted his hands, and everyone became encased in stone, similar to Leon's imprisonment earlier, with their heads revealed. Everyone save Holly.

"Now, Holly. You have what I want, and you have kept it from me long enough. Now it would be in your best interest to just... hand it over."

There was hardly any time to react. One moment she was paying attention to Henry, the next, Eric and Seifer were being thrown like dolls.

"YOU SONUVABITCH!!!" She shouted. Holly glanced around. Everyone else was entombed just as Leon was.

Her mind was racing, but she was still able to think ahead.

With everyone else trapped, she knew Josiah would hold that over her head.

"Why?" She asked.

"How can you do this? Your...How can you be so authentic and then turn on people so easily?" The tears were swelling again.

"I..." Holly paused. She didn't want to give the shard up. She wasn't concerned with it's power. The fact that it was a gift from her mother always held more importance to her, and as long as it was kept from Josiah's hands, they had one up on him. If she didn't give it to him, she knew, Josiah would kill everyone else. She watched as he didn't bat an eye before taking Leon down.

"I've already told you numerous times, Josiah." She said, her voice calm as her anger steadily rose. "All you have to do is pry it from my dead hands." She added with a shrug.

"It's that easy. You're working way too hard for this damned thing." a smug smile twitched at the corners of her mouth. Holly was at a boiling point, so beyond angry that she couldn't act anything else but with a calmness about her.

She needed more time to decide. Holly knew that if Josiah had the shard, there was a possibility that he wouldn't be stopped at all, but Holly also knew that it probably couldn't be done either way without everyone else.

"Pry, yes. Dead, no. I want you alive for what follows."

Josiah began to lift Holly into the air as before.

"You could have saved your father's life. Your friend's life's. Your life. But instead you will lose it all."

Josiah wasn't going to fall for her teasing.

"Take it!" She screamed, as she was rising into the air once again. She snatched the bracelet off her wrist, breaking the silver, and chucked the shard at Josiah as hard as she could.

She lost her calm, and therefore her clear thought process.

"Don't kill them...please..." She begged, all pride tossed aside. "Don't..."

ooc: Thanks for telling me this started again, everyone! Oh well, my character still gets to have dramatic timing.

ic: Brad had hidden in the helicopter as soon as Josiah appeared. Even when they shouted of Josiah's death, he still hadn't appeared. Everything happened so fast, and he had no time to react and properly concentrate to use his shard.

But when Holly threw her shard, he knew he had to act, he knew that he couldn't let this man take it for his own purposes, take it so that he could become yet more powerful.

Brad stepped out of the helicopter and altered the kinetic energy on the shard, sending it flying towards his own hand. Before he even caught it, he sent another blast of energy to the stone encasing Seifer, concentrating carefully to make the stone explode away from the man, hopefully not causing Seifer anymore injury.

He kept everyone else in stone, it would protect them from the coming battle...they would need protection.

He caught the shard, and held it along his own. It would be useful.

Brad paid as much attention as possible, keeping his shard ready...making sure he'd be safe if anything was sent flying in his direction. If he was fast enough, he could easily counter it.

"Holly," he said. "Get somewhere safe. I hope you don't mind me using your shard's shield for this battle, but there is no way I'm letting this guy have it...even if it means we all have to die right here, right now. Now get out of here!"

He looked at Josiah, "Now, how about telling me where Jack is."

Seifer rose, blood trickling down his left shoulder. His shirt was mildly torn on the side, and his scarred body showed through. He picked up his sword, which Josiah had dropped, and raised it with his good arm. He disappeared for a moment before returning to nearby Brad, Holly in his arms.

"You've been so brave, honey. Now, get out that gun I lent you and get ready to shoot this fucker dead. We'll be counting on you."

He stepped forward, now standing right next to Brad. "You're a fucking lifesaver, friend."

Brad nodded, "Thanks. Next time, don't pause time so that you can take on this freak by yourself."

He activated Holly's shard, touching it with both hands, keeping both his won shard and hers between his hands, and made sure that Seifer would be protected by it. "Let me make the first move," he said. "When I do, I want you to attack with every single thing you've got. It looks like it takes him a bit of willpower to heal, so we've got to not give him the chance to summon the willpower."

He looked into Josiah's eyes, "It's high time for this to end!"

Amazing that all these problems had only started yesterday...it felt like months, or even years.
