compiled and researched by Dhon72 & J4



One of the greatest Love Story ever told in the Digital World who captivates millions of people worldwide young or old alike is the love between Squall Leonhart and Rinoa Heartilly, the main hero of the Final Fantasy VIII, a roleplaying game made by Squaresoft now Square Enix a game software company. The intricate romance of this two started, when a young soldier and writer Laguna Loire, the highly hinted as father of Squall fell in love with a beautiful lounge singer and pianist Julia Heartilly the mother of Rinoa. The two got separated and did not end up together because the latter was sent to war, and at the juncture where he was injured in one of his mission, he was nursed back to health by Raine Loire to whom Laguna had developed an intimate relationship and was married. This two were separated when Laguna became president of Eshtar, thwarting his return to Winhill the town where Raine lives. Raine dies after giving birth to a boy, strongly implied by Ward and Kiros, soldier buddy of Laguna as Squall because of his similarity to his mother. Because there is no one to tend to Squall, he was taken to an orphanage where he grew up and eventually became a soldier. On the other hand, Julia marries a Galbadian officer General Caraway and bears a daughter, Rinoa. Julia became a successful singer especially with her song Eyes On Me and by the way is also the game’s theme song. She was killed in a car accident. Sixteen years later our heroes Squall and Rinoa met at a graduation Ball party, thus the adventure and their beautiful love story begins. The personalities of this two are polar opposites of each other. Rinoa has a warm, outgoing and very friendly personality, while Squall is cold and antisocial but in the end they fall in love to each other. Thus remarkably what love can do in spite of indifferences, and indeed one may say “Loves move in strange ways”.

May their story inspire each one of us once more and let us once again reminisce and cherish their never ending love for each other. video here (from youtube) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cC6_Dtc_xwE url embed

Nothing is as precious as love in life. But to find true love and attain that degree of happiness is not easy. Not all of us are lucky to experience the bliss of true love and end up undergoing much pain and disappointments. "Why do people depend on each other? In the end you're on your own."
