A view into the past, and a look into the present.

~Seventy Two Months ago~


It all began with a small mistake, which would ultimately change the life for the young commander in the Zaft military. Alisha had started to focus on her private life, thinking of living styles outside of being a soldier for a majority of her life.  She had taken a month off to get her life into perspective, and figure out what the next step would be in the rollercoaster called life. Alisha had returned to her once party like self, and started to attend social gatherings. At once such gathering Alisha ran into a young man Takashi Wilhelm. He was a gallant man, with his long black hair, and Asiatic features. She couldn’t take her eyes off him, and was stunned at the sheer beauty of this single male. It was uncertain if he noticed Alisha, but for some reason he spotted her. They both started to engage in heavy conversation about pop culture, political, and a majority of similar topics. From the distance they seemed very perfect, as if they were in their own world.


Alisha couldn’t remember the night; her head was aching from the alcohol consumed during the night. She had found herself in the bedroom of Takashi Wilhelm. She panicked during the first moment of realization of what she had done. Alisha did what most confused women her age did, she decided to sneak out of bed, and make a run for it. Takashi was nowhere to be found, but the shower could be heard from the bathroom attached to the master bedroom, where Alisha, and him apparently had slept together. She managed to leave the house, and eventually decided to forget the event had transpired.


Sadly, Alisha was reminded of the event when she had awakened to extreme nausea, and disorientation. It was only half a month from that very day, and Alisha ignored the early signs that something was growing inside of her body. One day during a routine day working at the national defense headquarters, Alisha found herself at the infirmary where the doctor had checked her over. The news was shocking to her ears, the doctor said with a smile, “Congratulations, you’re pregnant.” Alisha was dumbstruck; she was completely in a moment where she couldn’t think clearly. All that filled her mind was that her career would have to take an immediate stop, and that she would have to become a mother at the ripe age of twenty two.


Days after meeting with the doctor, Alisha had contacted Takashi, and explained the situation to him. At first he was skeptic at the thought that he was the father, but soon Takashi came to realize the truth, and rushed to Alisha’s side. Unlike others, it would seem that Takashi was as gallant as he looked. He would try to make this relationship work, and try to get to know Alisha more for the child’s sake. They both were now burdened with the task of telling their parents of their “mistake.” The information wouldn’t be happily approved by the fathers’ of the Wilhelm, and Diederich families.


It was a stressful time for the two young soon to be parents. Alisha and Takashi both continued working. Alisha was happy to find out that Takashi had served in the Zaft military for nearly eight years, and it seemed to be another thing that they had in common with each other. Soon after the lengthy period was over, Alisha was forced into taking maternity leave by order of her superior officers. Without work to fill out her day, Alisha spent it doing tasks befitting a pregnant woman. Both parents had moved in with each other and appeared to be a couple very much in love. This lasted for six more months, but due to the world being as it is, it would soon come to end.


During the day of delivery, Alisha was at the hospital while Takashi was arriving on first shuttle from Orb to Plant. Alisha feels guilty about pulling Takashi away from his work, or he would still be alive. During his arrival on Aprilius, he boarded his vehicle, and drove the fastest possible with consideration of legal limits. Half way to the hospital, his car was hit by another creating a massive accident on the highway. Takashi was rushed to the same hospital as Alisha, but he died hours after due to complications. Alisha was unaware of his death until a day or so later, she was absolutely crushed, and seemed to be in a state of depression for a series of months.


In that period of remorse, Alisha finally reconciled and devoted her life to raising their daughter, Alexis to the best of her ability. She was a beautiful child with her mother’s beautiful face, and her father’s passionate eyes.  Another topic is that Alexis was decided to be a natural, due to the growing issue in third generation Coordinators. Alisha didn’t care what race her child was, she would love her to the best her heart could. Despite concentrating on her career in the growing years, Alisha did her best in raising Alexis to the ripe age of six.


CE 85, Aprilius One, Present day


The alarm clock buzzed in the large dimly lit room of a house in a suburban area amongst the large facilities of Aprilius One. The curtains were closed, but small rays of light managed to slip past illuminating the room with its artificial lighting. Alisha lied there in bed with her arm resting on her forehead. She let out a soft sigh, and removed her arm showing her vibrant green eyes. Alisha turned for the clock, and read the current time. “Its morning already….” She let out a carefree nod, and climbed out a bed.


The door creaked open, and the small Alexis ran into the room with a big smile stretched across her face. She was dressed in a summer dress and held a teddy bear in her other arm. “Mommy, let’s go its almost time!”She grabbed Alisha’s hand and shook it intently. Alisha looked down at her daughter, and let out a soft smile. She patted Alexis on the head, and walked towards the bathroom.


Moments quickly passed, Alexis stood by her mother who was now dressed in her formal Zaft uniform. Alexis tried to mimic her mother’s mature, and experienced stance, but failed in comparison. The pair walked together down the street to the nearby school bus stop. Alisha had managed to get Alexis into one of the few prestigious grammar schools in the colony. It was primarily due to her families influence, but it was well worth it. A few of the mothers looked at Alisha, she was independent, and had no husband. It was known that she was never even married when she had her daughter. Many of them stare at Alisha as if she were sub-human. “Oh, good morning you two how are you? A woman with an obviously fake tone greeted the pair. Alisha gave her a smirk, and replied in the same tone. Alexis started to converse with the others, while the mothers continued to stare at Alisha judging her in the way house wives would to working women.


Minutes passed by while the school bus came into view. “Is everyone here?” The lady asked, while the driver opened the door allowing the lady to step out. The children all shouted in a unanimous voice, and started to board the bus. Alexis paused at midstep, and turned towards her mother. “Bye mommy! Have fun at work today!”  Alisha let out a bright smile, and waved goodbye. “Have a good day at school, honey.”Alisha bowed her head to the other housewives, and started off back to the house. “They really should stop being so overt around me…” Alisha walked into the driveway, and entered her luxury sports car. It was metallic silver in color, and looked very expensive. It seemed to be a perk for one of her rank, and familiar lineage.
