Those Chosen By The Planet
Scully heard the gunfire too. She wondered how Shinra managed to find them so fast. Audrea lay on the ground in a heap, shuddering as her old memories started to surface. "Mulder, weve got to get out of here!"
"I know we need to find a back door!" He shoved the computer into Scullys hands and tried to pick Morgan up. She was limp, her body dead weight.
Shinra troops finally broke through the door, swarming into the room, grabbing Mulder and Scully and throwing them to the floor. Sephiroth came in, took in the scene, and saw Audrea, shuddering in a heap in the floor. His Masamune sliced throught the handcuffs, freeing her arms. He looked at her to see her crying. Sephiroth turned toward the troopers. "Take them back the headquarters. Im sure theyll enjoy what we have in store for them." The troopers led Mulder and Scully away, Mulder shouting over his shoulder, "Remember, Morgan Remember who you are " he was cut off when the guard smacked him in the back with the butt of a rifle.
Sephiroth knelt down next to Audrea. "What did they do to you?"
Audrea shook her head, not trusting herself to answer. She shook violently, finally managing to gasp out "Its all true."
"What is?" Sephiroth saw the computer lying open on the floor. He picked it up and read the file. "What is this? How do you know its true?"
"Because." Audrea reached for him. "I remember everything. I have those memories. I remember. being .. that ..person." Her expression grew stronger. "Im an experiment! One of Hojos pets."
Sephiroth held her, letting her clutch him, as he read over the file. College-Educated, trained in various martial arts, a whiz with computers it sounded like Audrea and not like her. Audrea sat up, climbing out of his lap. "I dont want to live like this I dont want to be one of Hojos toys."
Sephiroth looked at her, realization dawning. "You cant "
"I can do whatever I damn well please." Audrea picked up Masamune, holding it by the wicked-looking blade. Sephiroth could see the blood running out of her hands.
Audrea looked at him for a long moment. "I love you." She plunged Masamune into her chest. As the sword went in, the sheer weight helped it pierce her body. She fell over. Sephiroth caught her and lowered her to the floor. She looked up at him. "Help me be free " He nodded, wrapping his hand around the blade and pulling the sword out of her chest. Audrea looked up at him.
And died. Sephiroth held her close, feeling her blood run out over his legs. "I loved you . too." He whispered.
He laid her body on the ground. "Take her back. Tell Hojo I want to see him." Sephiroth stormed out of the small building.
