Act Nine: Rivers of Belief
In the midst of the bustling dream world, yet another phone call was made. The phone rang three times before someone picked it up. Whoever had dialed began to talk without waiting for an acknowledgment.
“Hello Trinity. I don’t know if you can hear this, or if you’re even there. Either way, I have to say this, so that you’ll know, so that you’ll understand.
We both know what we have to do. There’s no way out of it. One way or another, this world is going to be changed, with or without my help. And if they have their way, it would mean that we lose, no matter what.
But, if there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that we are capable of anything. All we have to do is believe.”
The voice paused here, and for a few seconds there was no sound at all. He then continued having found the right words.
“I’m not going to accept the two choices that Fate has placed in front of me,” Neo said, “I don’t believe in them. Why should I? I still don’t believe in Fate.
“That’s why I choose choice number three: mine. I believe we can have this both ways and I intend to make sure we do. We will destroy the Matrix, and you will live to see it. I’ll see you soon.
…I love you.”
- AUTHOR’S NOTES:
- It’s finally done! After nearly two years! I hope that this has managed to keep you entertained (at least until the real deal comes out on May 15).
- Right off the bat, I have to give big hugs to: Becky, for beta-reading the last few chapters, Jullian, for listening to my rants as I worked (I’ll make it up to you, I promise!) and reading my drafts, and Obssidean and Ricky, for letting me abuse their aliases and inventing characters around them.
- And then, I have to bow down to everyone who took the time to give me a review out of the kindness of their hearts. So thank you…*takes a deep breath* MTS, Amberile, Christine Bubbles, Iluvmattdoran, Zephyr, Conlan, Centaur, IceWolf17, Scottishlass, jadedragon88, Ivy, PL, WG, faNatic, Daydreamer, chord, Blake, neofan, posh english tart, MulticoloredGypsy, and Morruniel. You people kick ass.
