Before I get into this part, i couldnt remember if Star Sybil was a title or a name, so i assumed title. If I was wrong and someone wishes to point this out, please due but refrain from being a tool about. Thank you.
Sarja-Maku rushed around Heavens' Tower trying to get so many things done. It was only a few days till the new Star Sybil was to be named. It had already been announced but it done this way. The formal announcement would wait for the offical cornation. Koraga-Leragu was to be named the new Star Sybil. She Sarja-Maku's boss in Heaven's Tower, and being promoted to Star Sybil meant that Sarja-Maku must take care of all the formal work for the cornation.
To make matter worse she pregnant with her first child and it was due any day now. She feared missing the naming and worst, hurting her child with all the work ahead of her. She grimaced at the thought but pushed through her work. She looked at the time and saw she was running late. She had a meeting to get to. It was a very important meeting of the Tarutaru Nation.
The Tarutaru Nation had been established shortly after The Crystal War. It was establish for the expansion of the Tarutarus. Not Windurst as a whole but the Tarutarus. It worked in secret behind the scenes. Moving pawns and making moves as it furthered it's cause. Very few within Windurst even knew it exist and even fewer outside Windurst knew of it.
Koraga-Leragu was the leader of the Tarutaru Nation but as she would become the Star Sybil a new leader needed to be named to take care of day-to-day affairs. Koraga-Leragu would be the overall leader but needed couldn't handle everything so they would be naming a new leader. Most within the Tarutaru Nation assumed
Sarja-Maku would be named, as she was second in charge but with her forthcoming pregnancy, no one was sure.
Sarja-Maku rushed across Windurst Waters to secret meeting place. Glancing around causiously as to not cause suspicion. Just after crossing a bridge, she lost her balance as she felt a pain come from her stomach. She fell to her knees clutching her stomach as dropped. Her whole body shook and she started to cry. The pain was to great, something felt wrong. She rolled to her side as a passing Mithra ran to her aide. Yelling for help as she reached Sarja-Maku.
A group of patrons helped take Sarja-Maku to the nearest home adn called for a White mage to come to her aide. She laid in the bed, wretched in pain. She kept crying, "My baby, my baby." The people in the room looked to each other with expressions of sorrow. Suddenly she screamed at the top of her lungs as she passed out.
When she awoke some time later she was bathed in sweat and she hurt from everywhere. She looked down to see her stomach had shrunk and she screamed in fear. "Where is my baby?!" Her eyes darting around the room vigoursly. Her eyes found a small Tarutaru sitting at the end of her bed, trying to calm her.
When their eyes met, Sarja-Maku felt relief for in the Tarutarus eye she saw joy and happiness. She started to talk but the words were lost in tears. "The baby is fine my dear but I fear for you." Standing up she moved to her side, "Something was wrong and you are bleeding inside, we can't stopped it. We are trying everything we know but there seems to be little we can do."
Taken a back by what was said her, her own mortality staring her in the face all she could say was, "Can I see my baby?" The Tarutaru looked down on her and smiled nodding. She turned and exited returning a few minutes later caring a bundle of blankets that was crying. She slowly lowered the child down to her mother's opened and waiting arms.
Floods of tears flowed from Sarja-Maku's eyes as she held her child. She smiled through the tears, holding her baby close to her heart. No words came to her, she choked back sobs. Lumps kept forming in her throat as she held her child.
Suddenly she said, "Your named is Minimaru my child. So small you are and so sweet. I love you so much my child." She looked up at the Tarutaru White Mage standing over her and she smiled at her. She accepted the smile but shocked covered her face as she saw Sarja-Maku suddenly start to fade. She ran forward and graped the child as Sarja-Maku's arms slumped to her sides.
Her turned her head to look at her child once more before they faded away. She laid on the bed, her body failed her but her spirit smiled down on her child as she moved away. The Tarutaru in the room cried openly as she held Minimaru in her arms, coddling her in sorrow.
Hours later word reached Koraga-Leragu as she left the meeting. She rushed through Windurst to find her friend, but to her sorrow and grief, she was to late. She laid on the bed, still as night and looking content with the way things ended. Falling to her knees beside her friend, her ears perked up as she heard a baby cry in the next room.
Suddenly looking down to at Sarja-Maku's stomach, her eyes looked to door as she stood and walked towards it. Pushing it open slowly she saw a Tarutaru holding a child in her arms, "Is that her child?"
Almost being taken back, she answered quickly, "Yes. She named her Minimaru before she passed." standing to offer the child to Sarja-Maku, she quickly spoke. "I tried everything. Everything I knew and nothing worked. I am sorry so sorry." Tears came to her and she fell to ground in sorrow after she handed the child to Sarja-Maku.
"I don't blame you for anything. Please don't hold this against your own soul. Tarutarus are so much more then this. This is sad a day for us all, more then you will ever know but a new tarutaru was brought into this world and that would never of happeneded without you. For that, I owe you more then I could ever repay. Know that the child will be raised happy and strong. You did a great deed and for that, you must never be sad. Someone will come in a while to collect my friend, I am to take her child and leave now. Thank you, my friend." Smiling down on her she took the child and left the room heading straight to her home.
Don't be silly, the only reason ever to quit FFXI through real life death and even then I want evidence in the form of a death certificate. Scratch that, I want to see a corpse
