Great fic, I am a little sad that Fate didn't say 'bye' to Nanoha, but well, it is comprehensible...now that Nanoha will be away for a while she will see that she miss Nano =P

Part 6 of the story, brought to you by the letter D and the number 9.
Btw...I swear this is becoming less and less of a one-shot and more and more of a multi-chapter fic *sigh*

Spoiler:
I pulled out Raising Heart, the red amulet I've carried my entire life and opened it revealing the picture within. "Dad...?" I spoke unknowingly

"Hello, Shiro" she spoke to the tomb. "I am sorry I haven't been here in a while. I am doing well...and I brought someone with me." she looks at me "This is Nanoha...our daughter. Under Precia's care shes grown into quite the astonishing woman. Everything is finally over...you don't need to worry any longer. I will take up everything from here, so please don't burden yourself any longer. Rest well...my dear husband." she bowed her head for a while, as she did so I could clearly see tears running down her face and falling to the ground. I wanted to do something--anything, but my body wouldn't move. After a few more moments, we walked back down the small hill and sat on the bench overlooking the cemetery.

"So it's true then..." I slowly stated.

"Yes" she responded

"But why?!" I cried out "Why did you give me away?! What do you mean its all over?! Just who are you?! Tell me!" before I knew it I had grabbed her collar in desperation. "I-I'm sorry" I released her quickly and backed away, looking at the ground ashamed at what I had just done.

"Before you were born..." she began after a few silent moments, looking up at the sky as if gathering her memories together like the clouds in the sky. "Your father was a bodyguard--a well respected one at that. He was always asked to go on dangerous jobs protecting clients. I married him anyway despite the fact that I knew our lives would always be in constant danger. It was tough sometimes always having to move around, but that was part of the package wouldn't you say?" she laughed a little. "A few months before you were born. Your father was tasked with another assignment. I was almost appalled that he had taken a job at the most critical time, but he promised me that this would be the last job he took. I believed him and let him go." she sighed as if regretting that decision. "Fate can be cruel sometimes" she continued after a moment of silence "the same time your father said it would be his last job..." she started to tear up a little bit and fought back against the emotions that were plainly written over her face

"Momoko-san..." I tried to comfort her but she just shook her head in a silent "Thank you, but I am ok"

"He died protecting his clients, by shielding them from a bomb." she continued "Because of his sacrifice they were able to track down the hitman, who in turn gave up his client's name...Jail Scaglietti. Jail was furious and though the course of a few months, the police had managed to shut down over 1/2 his illegal operations. After losing so much he turned his attention on revenge and wanted to kill every single family member of the person who thwarted the assassination. I was rushed to the hospital one night by some friends and they were in such a panic that they didn't even bother to turn off the lights." she looked at me gently. "You were born hours later, Nanoha. I was so happy that I finally had someone else in my life, I was glad that I listened to Precia and stayed alive."

". . ." I could say nothing. All I could do was hold my breath and keep listening to the history of myself that I never knew.

"Hours later, the police came by and told me that the house had been destroyed. An envelope found in the mailbox left by the assassin stated that this was revenge. They started asking me questions about who this might be and about your father. Eventually the nurses pushed them out since I was exhausted, heh, after all I did just give birth to you." she smiled at the memory. The next day I was told I was to be placed in protective custody until such time that the originator of the attack could be caught. The police had no leads whatsoever so they wanted to use me as bait." she gritted her teeth angrily. "That is when I made a decision..."

"W...what decision?" I finally managed to ask

"I went to my old colleague, Precia and explained the situation. I knew back then that she would be hard pressed since she herself had just given birth to a daughter just a month or two before you were born." she sighed "I didn't want to put you in danger." she started to tear up "I...I wanted you to have a normal life. I wanted you to be happy. I didn't want you to live running for your life all the time." she started sobbing "I am so sorry, Nanoha. I have no right to be your mother...but at the same time I just cant ever forget about you."

I instinctively wrapped my arms around her in comfort. Surprisingly she felt...warm and gentle...almost as it if was natural for me to hold her like this. This crying woman in front of me...somehow I had the feeling that she wouldn't lie about something like this. That somehow...deep down...I knew she was telling the truth. I wanted to make her stop crying, but I just couldn't think of how. So I did the only thing I could do...try to take her mind of things. "What happened..." I started slowly "to Jail?"

She started to clear her head and conform herself once again before responding "They finally managed to capture him after all these years. All thanks to the INTERPOL agent assigned to take care of me. She was a good friend and I was saddened to have her leave when it was over. She stayed with me all this time and kept cheering me up, even going to great lengths to sneak pictures of you to me to keep me going. Lindy Harlaown was her name."

"She sounds like a good friend" I commented, still leaning on her shoulder

"Yeah she is" Momoko smiled "she was the one who helped me find you again, since Precia moved several times since I gave you to her." she looked at me gently "I am so sorry...this is probably too much to take in all at once...but please...this is the truth."

"Alright..." I started "it will take a while for me to accept all of this...but I am sure that with time I will be able to do so." I said honestly.

"We'll go as slow as you need to. I will be here for you from now on...to make up for all the time I should have spent with you. I promise."

"Could we..." I looked at her "start from the beginning?" I asked softly

"Sure" she said wiping the tears from her eyes

I took a deep breath and started "Hello...I am Takamachi, Nanoha...your daughter." I smiled gently, my eyes tearing up as the words flowed out of me so effortlessly...almost as if I had never carried the Testarossa name.

"Hello" she responded smiling back at me "I am Takamachi, Momoko...your mother."

A/N you thought I was going to add a funny in there weren't you? WEREN'T YOU?! XD

Lol, I was too focused on the story that I wasn't thinking of a funny you were going to put in here. Too bad, I wasn't thinking you would put one. Lol. XD

Well, it's good. Awesome. Sad, I should say. T^T

Shiro's always a bodyguard. Nice~
Jail Scaglietti is one crazy man.

No need for a change. It's good as it is.
And yes, it's getting more and more into a multi-chapter than a one-shot. (:

MUAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! *Cough cough* Ahem. Yeah...

I want to ask a question...should I end the story there or keep going? That right there seems like a good open ending. What do you guys think? This is originally supposed to be a one-shot so thats why I am asking hehehe

Or more simply in an epilogue, that could be the best compromise.

Yeah, I agree with the others, almost resolve the situation between Nanoha and Fate; maybe one more part or a epilogue.

This part is brought to you by the number 7 and the word "Epilogue"

So you guys want an epilogue eh? How is this? *grins*

Spoiler:
A few days pased by quickly. In that time span I had learned a lot about my real mother. For instance: I learned that she had opened up a cafe not too long ago called "Cafe Midoriya". She said it was her dream along with dad's to be able to just settle down and live a simple life baking sweets and making everyone happy. She taught me how to work things and within 6 hours I was making my own first cinnamon bun. I couldnt believe how happy I was...here I am, finally with my real mother--after all these years! Life couldnt get better than this...

"Nanoha?" mom called over to me

"Yes?"

"Its about time now" she smiled softly

"Time for...?" I tilted my head questioningly

"It is time for you to return to Precia."

My world yet again stood still for a moment. I had been so engrossed with being with my real mother that I had completely forgotten about my other family. No...I hadn't forgotten. I just didn't want to have to face her again. "Mom..." I started slowly "would you mind if I stayed with you from now on...?" I looked up at her

"Is something wrong, Nanoha?"

"No" I lied "I just...I have spent my entire life with them, yet I have only spent a couple of days with you. I want to learn more about the person who gave me life. I want to truly be your daughter."

"What should I tell Precia?"

"I would like to talk to her if possible, myself."

I picked up the phone and called over to the Testarossa household, praying that Fate wouldn't answer it. Thankfully Precia did and I was able to calm myself down. We talked a little while about what was going on, how things were going, and plans for the future.

"I see..." Precia stated

"Yeah...I am so sorry. I can't thank you enough for raising me like your own, but I would also like to learn more about her."

"No, I understand perfectly Nanoha. I'll have your stuff moved over in the morning ok?"

"Can I..." I hesitated

"Yes?"

"Can I make one request please?" I braced myself

"What is it dear?"

"I would like you please keep my stuff there...I would like to always have another home to go to."

"Nanoha" she paused a few moments "you will always be welcome here. This is your home, and I will always be waiting till your return."

"Thank you" I said as small tears started flowing "...Precia-mama."

"Take care of yourself, Nanoha. Dont be a stranger now, stop by every once in a while ok?"

"I will. Thank you" I said wiping my tears away and hanging up the phone.

"Did you make your decision?" Mom asked coming into the hallway after I finished

"Yes. I am going to stay here" I smiled at her.

"Alright" she smiled back "then help me make dinner will you?"

"Hai!"

* * * * * * * * * *

"She WHAT?!" Fate rose from her chair at the dinner table "But why!?"

"It's her decision, Fate" Precia continued to eat, not one bit deterred by her daughter's outburst

"...its all her fault..." Fate whispered to herself

"Hmm?" Precia looked over

"It's nothing, sorry" she said as she continued eating "I am going to visit in the morning" she stated flatly

"...Alright" she eyed her daughter knowing full well that something wasn't right.

* * * * * * * * * *

"I'm beat!" I stated as we closed the shop for the day

"Can you handle the closing by yourself, Nanoha?" mom called as she was preparing to leave to go shopping for dinner.

"Yeah I can handle it!" I called back "Take care of yourself!"

"Be back soon!" she waved as she left the store.

"Alright" I thought to myself "I have to do this, this, and this before I can--" the customer bell rang as the door opened and someone stepped in "I'm sorry we are closed for the...Fate-chan" I breathed obviously surprised.

"Hello, Nanoha" she responded.

"What brings you here so late?" I asked trying to avoid anything that might bring back memories of that night.

"I've come to take you back" she said flatly

"You wha-?" I was thrown off guard

"I've come to take you back home! To where you belong!"

"What are you talking about?" I tried to make sense of the bits and pieces I have been receiving

"She just tricked you!"

"How could you say that?!" my eyes widened

"She abandoned you as a child and doesn't make any contact all these years then suddenly pops back up!? Dont you find that strange, Nanoha?"

"What *I* find strange, Fate-chan, is YOU spurting all this nonsense!"

"That woman ruined everything!" she screamed "She destroyed our family!"

I couldn't believe I was hearing this, this is just no WAY I could be hearing this. "Fate-chan!" I screamed

"It would have been better if that woman NEVER APPEARED!!!"

"...leave"

"Nanoha I--" she started after she realized what she had just said

"I said leave...NOW!" I shouted with tears in my eyes.

"Let me explain-!"

"Get out of my sight!!! AND NEVER RETURN!!!" I screamed at the top of my lungs.

Fate's eyes were wide in shock, her hand over her mouth. She looked at me for a few more moments before spinning around rapidly and running out of the store.

*laughs evilly*

You're evil, you know ? Now, I want your story to continue, you can't let Fate and Nanoha stay like that in such bad terms, that'd be far too cruel... (;_;)

Aww, that was cute and sweet and nice!
Nanoha wants to stay with her real mother, but for 2 reasons instead of one.
First she wants to avoid Fate-chan and not face her.
Second she wants to stay with her real mother since she lost so much time with her.

Soooo... Nanoha stays with Momoko and leaves Fate-chan and Precia.
Is this really the end?
Nanoha doesn't get to be with Fate-chan!!?
You're laughing evilly so that means there's something in the end right?
Something more?

I want Part 2 of Epilogue!! >_< This didn't satisfy me!! Because Nanoha didn't get to be with Fate-chan in the end! But Fate-chan was being all butt-hurted and stuff. It was HER fault, not Nanoha's. She was the one that let Nanoha go and TOLD Nanoha to go to Momoko. So I guess that's her fault. Oh well.

It was good. Sad ending though. Meanie!! XD
It was good while it lasted. (:

But still, I want to see Nanoha and Fate-chan together!! >o<

When you asked me if you should continue still or end it, I didn't get to answer you. I still want you to continue!!! Still!!

Well, if you do post this in fanfiction then please continue! I will bug you on ends until you continue and make them have a good relationship with each other!!! MUAHAHAHA!!! *Coughs* Ahem, and I mean it too!!! >:o

Part 8 of True Lies brought to you by the number 8 and the words "Divine Buster"

Spoiler:
* * * * * * * * * *

My knees buckled beneath me as I started to calm down. I couldn't believe what just happened. I couldn't believe Fate-chan just SAID all of that! I wiped my tears and slowly picked myself up, shaking my head before closing down the rest of the store and heading to my room. I plopped on the bed thinking about the argument over and over again...

"It would have been better if that woman NEVER APPEARED!!!"

"How could you, Fate-chan?" I asked aloud as tears started to form again "Just when I finally found out the truth...you had to force me to make a decision like this..." I buried my face in the pillow and continued crying for who knows how long before my body finally decided I needed to rest.

* * * * * * * * * *

I don't know how long I had passed out, but I awoke to someone gently stroking my head. I looked up slowly to see my mother sitting next to me smiling

"Did I wake you?" she asked gently

"No, I needed to get up anyway" I looked up at her.

"What's wrong?" she asked

"Nothing" I stated

"You were crying in your sleep" she noted "so obviously something must be wrong."

"Mom..." I started "I don't know what to do." I leaned on her "I just got so mad at Fate-chan that...that I might have destroyed everything between us."

"What did you say?" she patted me gently

"Well first she said that you destroyed our family, then she said it would have been better if you never appeared." I sobbed a little "then I got so mad at her that I screamed at her to never show herself in front of me again."

"Nanoha..." mom comforted me "how could you say such a thing? Isn't Fate your sister?"

"She is but...she said all those horrible things about you! I just couldn't let them go!"

"So now everything between you two...everything that was built up all those years are for nothing?"

"I..."

"Is your relationship with her really that weak that something as simple as this would tear you both apart?"

"No" I shook my head "there is something else I haven't told you."

"What is it?"

"The day you came to pick me up" *sniffle* "I told Fate-chan...I told her..." I braced myself "I told her that I loved her" I confessed

"That's natural Nanoha, she is your sister right?"

"No, mom." I shook my head "I mean I love her...as another girl"

"I understand" mom smiled

"You do?" I looked up at her "You aren't going to be angry or anything? You don't find it strange?"

"Why would I?" mom asked as if it was something completely obvious

"Because...Fate-chan is a girl...and I like her..."

"Does she feel the same way?"

"She said I am only a sister to her"

"Did you confirm her feelings?"

"Why should I? She said it herself!" I cried again

"Nanoha..." mom hugged me tightly "I don't think she really meant that. She did come all this way to try to bring you back right?"

"Yeah..."

"So I am sure she thinks of you more than just that...why don't you go talk to her?"

"But...but..." I stammered after the memory of me screaming at her to never appear before me again flashed through my mind.

"Go, Nanoha." Mom released me and smiled "I will wait till you return. Now go"

"But..."

"If you truly love her...then go."

I picked myself up and looked at my mother one last time, wiping the tears from my face and becoming resolute once more. She smiled at me and whispered in my ear as she passed by me "If you are going to be home late be sure to at least give me a call ok?" I couldn't help but chuckle a little bit as I followed her down the stairs to the door.

"I'm heading out mom...and thanks"

"Do your best, Nanoha. Remember...I will always be here for you."

* * * * * * * * * *

"Hello Precia-mama" I called as I reached the Testarossa household

"Welcome back, Nanoha" she greeted me

"Is...Fate-chan in?" I inquired

"Shes locked herself in her room"

"May I go see her?"

Precia looked at me as if I was treating her like a stranger "Nanoha...I told you this is still your home. You are welcome here at anytime so please don't be so reserved."

"Thank you, Precia-mama" I hugged her. "Oh Nanoha there's something I have to tell you before you go up there."

"What is it?"

Darth Precia: Nanoha...I am your mother.

Nanoha: Um, no you're not. You're Fate's mother.

Darth Precia: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Director: Cut! This is the wrong movie for that shout!

Me: I told you to take that line out of the script!

I walked up the stairs and stopped in front of Fate's door. "Fate-chan..." I knocked. "Fate-chan?" I knocked again after several moments of silence. When still no response came I opened the door slowly and stepped inside. The dark room with minimal lighting looked so lonely, so sad. I walked over to the bed where Fate was laying and gently stroked her face and pushing her hair out of the way. She stirred in her sleep a little bit before opening her eyes...

What kind of ending was that?! They didn't even make up yet!! So much for an ending.

Quote:

Darth Precia: Nanoha...I am your mother.

Nanoha: Um, no you're not. You're Fate's mother.

OH MY GOSH! I LAUGHED AT THIS! I REMEMBER YOU TELLING ME THIS MANY TIMES AND HERE I AM READING AND LAUGHING AT THIS!! HAHAHAHA!!!

Momoko is so understanding. So is Precia. Unlike Fate-chan, well, maybe that's because she just lost her loved one to her real mother, but hey, she's back isn't she? What is Fate-chan going to say when she wakes up and sees Nanoha?! What is Nanoha going to say when Fate-chan wakes up?!

Don't just stop here, Sensei!! Hmm, you said that you'll work on the next part, but you didn't say 'work on the ending' so that means it's still continuing, right?! >o< It better!!

Make Nanoha and Fate-chan together again!! >:o
