“Anna! Tammy!” my mother yells, cupping her hands over her mouth in an attempt to amplify her voice. “Stop that, right now!”
I glance at my sister from over my sunglasses, and we share a knowing grin. Getting on Mom's nerves are one of our many hobbies.
“Ignore her,” Anna whispers, giggling, as we turn our backs so she can't see what we're doing. We stand, shoulder to shoulder, hips to hips, ankles to ankles. We both bend over, and I set down the plastic watering can.
“Here,” I say in a low voice. “I brought it from the backyard.”
Anna peeks over her shoulder at Mom, who's red-faced and chattering quickly to Mrs. Brooks, our neighbor, like she does when she's embarrassed or nervous. “She's occupied. Good, we've got time.” She rips open a packet of lemonade and dumps it into the bucket of water she'd brought. Her long, brown hair falls in her face, and she tucks it aside impatiently.

And we will win! Part twoThe dream came. It was from the previous month's massive festival of peace and solidarity, as Shin-Ra had finally agreed to make life better for the citizens of Midgar, and rebuild Sector Seven, under the governing rule of a new, somewhat mysterious governor.And we will win!

It had only been three weeks since an odd fault line had opened, and taking out over a hundred square mile chunk of land, barely missing the outskirts of Midgar by ten miles.
But the fault line wasn't the real issue, it was the demons at the bottom that was a HUGE problem. They ate every living human that they got a hold of, young, old, male, female, everyone.
And fending them off was difficult because magic was next to useless against them.
Most of the citizens of Midgar that made it to the upper city were safe, because the demons somehow could not climb the walls, though their sharp claws seemed to be able to stick into anything.
The dream was sweet, but short lived, because the woman would soon be awakened by the calling of man
And we will win! Part oneShe swung that unnaturally heavy sword, getting more and more of that blackened blood all over herself, but not caring. She was the last one on the battlefield who could wield a weapon, and in all rage mode, she was going to win this day, for the glory of her clan, damn it.And we will win!

'Clan!?' She thought, as she stabbed the heavy sword into the heart of this foul beast, before giving it a shove off the blade, sending it over the cliff and down a good half a mile with a sickening splat a few seconds later.
She squatted, gasping for breath as she dropped the sword to the ground. "Cloud, how the Hell do you use this thing?"
She looked back, saw Cloud on his back, not moving, perhaps not breathing either, and sighed.
She stood up, dusted herself off, getting blood all over her dress, and walked over to her wounded comrades-in-arms.
Tifa stared straight up at her. "I'd expect no less from a half Angel." Tifa's speech was labored, like her breathing; no surprise since her left lung was obviously colla
The AsherxSabrinaXKent Conflict Things had gotten silent between the two as Sabrina looked at the floor, her fist clenching as Asher stopped his muttering to see what was holding her up. Tears started to prick at her eyes as she bit her lip, trying to keep from crying. “What's going on Sabrina?” He asked, sounding monotone as always unless he was complaining as to why he was paired up with Sabrina when she clearly had no physical will to be able to fight.The AsherxSabrinaXKent Conflict2 days ago in Short Stories More Like This
“I may be weak.”
“I may be weak! I may be useless but that doesn't mean that I am going to give up! I'm going to try and keep trying because I have hope that even if I can't fight that I can make some kind of difference! I'm sorry I don't have supreme martial arts skills to compare to you anymore! If you don't want to help me, then leave!”
“No, I said leave! Because I don't need you to talk bad about me when I already do myself! Ever since that day you rejected me
