Inspired by Keichama's artwork
It wasn't like Lightning to give up any other battle, any other day, and any other moment she would've gotten back up. But even she had forgotten, every person l'Cie or not, has their limits. Eventually their spirit would erode, their willpower would fade, and their body would just give up. She, minutes before this very moment thought herself above such a notion. Everybody else may falter they may give up hope, they may get angry, and they may want to quit but she never would.
Not until now, where she lay on the ground, ears ringing and mind slowing down to a pace that she would compare to Snow's normal wit. Her body throbbed with pain, but it never passed to the point of agony. Something she slowly realized her nerves were shot, to the point where they couldn't even be bothered to let her feel adequate pain for the situation.
Some ugly-son-of-a-bitch Ceith had just blown her and her tea

Both lost in thought, Cloud embraced Tifa tightly and held her, all the questions had no answer but there was only one thing he was grateful for and that was Tifa, she was so innocent and the only one who didn't lie to him, not once. Cloud wasn't the only one with millions of thoughts, Tifa sat mute in Cloud's embrace, she knew Cloud didn't keep his word of setting her free but she had a deep feeling he had good reason. As much as she did want to be out of this messy situation she didn't want to leave Cloud.

"Hmm" he muffled, he has never felt like this, the only time he would rest is at night to sleep, his body and mind were very different but he was too tired to analyze it.
Tifa didn't know what to ask and stayed silent, the silence spoke for itself, both could sense

Overlooking the quaint land of Nibelheim, high atop Mt. Nibel, stood a humble, yet proud castle. The peaks of it's towers hidden beneath a blanket of fresh snow. Compared to the grandeur of castle Midgar, castle Nibelheim resembled more of a large mansion, no need for superfluous extravagances, the castle house the king, his daughter and a just number of servants, guards, as well as the council.
Usually quite the placid environment, on this day, inside the castle walls, the guards and servants were frantically searching for a certain vivacious brunette before their king learned of yet another disappearance of his daughter. Yes, this certainly was nothing new. Princess Tifa was often parading out on her own small adventures, albeit she never went very far, often just exploring around Mt Nibel, or wandering around the village aimlessly through shops. Although it was not advised that the Princess leave the castle walls without a chaperone, most of the time, no one went searching for her w

The sky was becoming brighter as the light peeked through the thin aqua nets. The warm smell of sweet fruit and musky perfume filled Tifa's lungs with images of last night playing in her mind. Her eyes closed and an excited yet, slightly tired smile lit up her face. The smile faded when the thought of it all being a dream haunted her, her eyes fluttered open and her surroundings came to vision. She felt a warm, strong, muscular form embracing her and she smiled gently. Both lay with nothing but a navy-blue sheet over them.
'It wasn't a dream' she thought to herself, pleased and turned her head slightly to the right to come face to face with her lover.
Cloud lay on his stomach, hugging Tifa tightly and his face inches away from hers, gently breathing. Tifa watched him sleep. He looked so peaceful, for the first time, not fighting or thinking of anything; just resting in silence. 'Even in his sleep he's protecting me' she smiled.

At the Y. O. U. T. H. Orphanage in Destiny Islands, Cid was sitting on his desk, tapping his bills with his pen. It was a boring morning, one that Cid wished would end. Just then, he heard someone coming through the entrance. Cid stood up and walked out of his office to greet the customer, a hooded man, whose face couldn't be seen.
Cid spoke first, "Hello, and welcome to my orphanage. How may I be of service?" the customer replied, "Professor Cidolfus Demen Bunansa, I would like to see your weapons." Cid clapped in excitement, "Oh, another one? Excellent! Is this an order from the state?" the customer replied, "You'd be surprised."

The noise of the party was blocked out by the dense wooden walls of the spare room at Tifa's bar 7th Heaven. Four Turks stood in silence waiting for orders from the President Rufus Shinra, who was at that exact moment, in a heated conversation on the phone. After a few minutes he seemed somewhat satisfied and hung up, turning to face the Turks in his wheelchair, he spoke, addressing them. "Moments ago we received a distress signal from Tseng. As you all know he was working on a mission-"
"Yeah, but we don't know anything about it" muttered Reno.
The president continued, ignoring Reno's comment. "This mission was strictly confidential and highly dangerous-"
"Then why the hell did you send him on his own?!" the red head yelled interrupting him.
Usually at this point, the others would have been throwing Reno evils, hinting for him to keep silent, but not this time. This time, he was right. Nobody went on this type of high level mission alone. It was Rufus' fault Tseng was in danger now.

Dear my love,
Everything seems so empty since you've gone.
The long, sunshine less days of this dreary town seem that much lonelier in your absence, and even the flecks of spitting rain don't seem to look the same shape on the windshield. The soft stepping of the cats paws as it wanders the household at night sound utterly more careful and restless, and the dreadful squeak of our bedroom door fills my heart with contempt and longing, as I know it isn't you who walks though it.
Yet still my darling I am going to wait for you forever; and although it sounds childish and sugarcoated, I desperately mean it. I hope you're thinking of me where you are, whatever you're doing, and I hope you're feeling alright. I suppose you should tell me this in your response letter to cease my worrying and fatigued mind from wandering aimlessly forever amidst shadows.
Please be safe, although I know such a thing is a awkward plea with regards to where you are.

Pain was everywhere, every muscle, every vein, I couldn't even think.
I was dying.
He was killing me.
It was a pool of blood I was lying in, my own blood, still flowing from the deep cuts in my arms, chest, back, legs, everywhere.
I could only look up at the dark, grey sky, and try to ignore the pain, the fear, the unstoppable trembling that tried to run over me.
I failed, there was no one left to save the world.
Sephiroth walked around me, careful not to touch my blood.
'It is over, Cloud' he said in his deep, low voice.
I coughed up blood.
