Cloud Strife Part 31When Genesis stopped the truck just outside Nibelheim, everyone stared in surprise. The town that most of them remembered as a burning rubble from the day that Sephiroth had first lost his mind was thriving with life once again. As they piled out of the truck, they couldn't stop looking around at all the people that moved around calmly, as if nothing had ever happened to wreck their tranquil life. All of the houses had been rebuilt and it all looked brand new.Cloud Strife Part 315 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
"I don't think we're gonna find Sephiroth anywhere around here," Zack said with a slight frown. "It certainly doesn't look like he's been around for a while."
"We should still look," Genesis said. "Just in case."
"Yeah." Zack took hold of Rufus' wheelchair and moved towards the town slightly before stopping again. "Is that..."
"What?" Cissnei asked, stepping up beside him and trying to see what he was looking at.
"Over there," Zack murmured, letting go of the wheelchair and walking forward more without it. He squinted slightly, d

"Zack?" Aerith asked quietly, tapping him on the arm as she stared out the window of the small shop.
"Hmm?" he asked, turning to her.
"Do you know her?" she asked innocently, gesturing towards where a girl with soft red curls stood out in the crowd of the marketplace. "She was staring at you before. Zack?" Aerith frowned slightly and looked back up at Zack. He was staring at the girl, his eyes bulging out of his head and his jaw open in shock.
"Cissnei!?" he gasped finally, finding his voice. Moving from Aerith's side, he was almost out the door before he stopped. Aerith hurried up to him again. "What if she's

"Sounded like someone was playing with a gun." he muttered.
"It sounded close to the bar! We should go back!" Tifa said, already hurrying forward. She paused and turned to look at Reno. He was hunched slightly, his hands in his pockets and digging the toe of one shoe into the ground.
"Go check then." he said quietly.
"Reno? What's wrong?" Tifa walked back to him and put a hand gently on his shoulder. He jerked away suddenly, eyes flaring up angrily as he backed away.
"Don't touch me." he spat.
"Reno?" Tifa stared at him in confusion and sadness, wondering what on earth was going on.
"Trust me, Tifa. Just go home." he lowered his eyes to the ground and stood there awkwardly.
"Reno if you don't tell me what's going on right now I'll never talk to you ever again." Tifa said sternly, narrowing her eyes slightly. Reno didn

You smiled curiously at him. You laughed and rested your head in between his shoulder blades as the wind whipped right on by. You closed your eyes as you felt the rush of the wind and going over seventy miles an hour.
After what seemed like hours, the motorcycle slowed down and Cloud hollered back, “Close your eyes!”
You looked at him with curiosity but you complied.
“Good, don’t open them till I tell you to. Got it?”

Finally, the motorcycle came to a halt. You sat up. A gentle breeze caressed your face. Then, you felt Cloud dismount.
He spoke gently, “Okay, now open.”
You opened them and smiled.

"Is that what you really think? I was just a burden that kept getting into trouble and you had to keep helping?"

Cloud pushed away his thoughts of the argument between himself and Tifa, concentrating on recalling the information of what else happened.
"Genesis and Sephiroth went up to the reactor. Uh, Sephiroth kept talking about 'mother' and... he fell of the platform." Cloud described sketchily.

Sion glowed even in darkness.
It wasn't about the snowy white hair or the blazing crimson eyes that were now hidden under his eyelids as he slept. During daytime, every time he stepped out of the shadows, sunlight seemed to embrace him with an affectionate fondness. As if it loved him. Even at night, when there was no sun or even without the luster of the moon bathing the wasteland with its rays, Sion always seemed to glow against the pitch-black background. Nezumi could observe this, but he could not explain it. It was just one of the things that was to remain inexplicable and a mystery as long as he lived.
Still, Nezumi couldn't help but wonder as he watched him sleep next to him and as he felt the heat radiating from his limp body from under the blanket. How could he look so peaceful? How could he still glow even as he slept? Nezumi was used to watching him sleep like this, but it baffled him each time. Especially at times like this when he felt like he could give away
