The Monkey In MeDeep inside the cracks of my mind lives a monkey.The Monkey In Me3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
He has a maraca he likes to shake
And a blanket made of dust.
On bright days I wonder what he does there,
I even consider asking him;
His answer is but a monkeyish laugh
He shakes his maraca at me, mocking my thoughts,
Grins at me, with a smile that misses five teeth.
Then he jumps in joy, cries out, leaps away
He climbs my logic and chips a few pieces
And with them he decorates his house
which he built in my inspiration.
When night falls he tends to rummage
Through the drawers of my mind,
Poking this and poking that.
He never sits still, always playing his game.
Sometimes though he disappears
Into darker corners unheard of.
But upon his return he has found
So much and all of it he will, undoubtedly,
Fill up the shelves of his house with.
When did he come to be, I wonder.
What is he doing in my mind, pray tell!
For how much longer will this baboon taunt me?
I have a monkey inside me you see,
Maybe he's the reason I never sit still,
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

"Aerith! Check these out!" Zack said, ducking into another little shop that was set up at the side. She laughed, following after him, and the two of them were soon engrossed in more things for sale.
"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.

Zack asked cautiously, bouncing ever-so-slightly as he sat on the edge of Cloud's make-shift bed in the office. Cloud frowned slightly and shrugged.Cloud Strife Part 257 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
"Is that what you really think? I was just a burden that kept getting into trouble and you had to keep helping?"
"Tifa, I didn't mean-"
"Stop it! I finally understand, okay? You've never liked me. That's why you never wrote and you never took my calls. Maybe that's even why you left in the first place; just to get away from me."
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.
"Okay." Zack nodded thoughtfully, biting his bottom lip as he sunk into his thoughts for a moment. He continued his bouncing, looking

Uh, yeah. he nodded.
What's your name? the turk asked. I'm Reno.
Cloud Strife. Cloud replied. Reno nodded slowly, letting the name sink in and repeating it in his head a few times so he wouldn't forget it.
Well, see you round, kay? Reno said, turning with a wave and walking off. Cloud frowned slowly but pushed the thought out of his mind and continued walking.

When you laid down for bed a few hours ago, you had expected to be able to sleep through the night and wake up in the morning fully rested. You lived alone and typically didn't expect to get any late night/ungodly early morning calls from your friends, much less visits. Yet here you were at 2:30 in the morning glaring at your front door, more specifically, the person behind it.
"(Y/N), I know you're in there~! I'ma Turk, ya know, and I can break this door down if I want to," Reno slurred out. He definitely had too much to drink tonight. You wrinkled your nose, the smell of alcohol was already strong, and he was still on the other side of the door.
You growled, "I'm a Turk, too, and don't think that I won't hesitate to kick your intoxicated ass if you break my door."

Your whole body was trembling; never before had you felt such a great fear than at this moment. Tarana observed your shaking form and grinned. "W-When you kill me, your guild will be disqualified …" You murmured with a broken voice, hoping that this fact would prevent her from killing you.
Tarana closed her eyes briefly and smiled before she burst into laughter. "I don’t give a shit about the Grand Magic Games. All I want is my pearl and your death. I don’t care if we get disbanded from the Grand Magic Games or not. I’m only interested in the Abyss-pearl. And the Tang pearl that you have in your hands before my subordinate was able to steal it."
You took a step back, clutching the pearls around your neck with your fist. "I will never hand over them to you." you said. Tarana grinned and disappeared into the shadows. Not a second later, she appeared right in front of you and her hand grabbed your throat. "Who said anything about handing over? After your death I

Walking across the unkempt streets of Midgar, you glanced at many people that you suspected to be infected with the deadly ‘disease’, Geostigma. You only wished you could help them, but you too were affected with the virus. You had heard there was no cure, but you had a little bit of hope left.
A loud roaring was heard of the sound of a vehicle driving down the road. You turned you head behind you and barely saw Cloud’s Fenrir pass you in one fast rapid motion. The immediate push of wind bouncing off the bike, caused your _____(h/c)_____ to blow in the wind wildly. You gave out a little cough from the large patches of dust that filled the air but it eventually disbanded. You blinked your eyes a few time, and saw the Fenrir in the distance. Sighing, you continued walking towards your destination.
After about an hour of walking, you opened the doors and was welcomed into the bar that was known as, 7th Heaven.

“Someplace special!” He called back.
“You’ll see soon enough!”
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?”
‘Where could he possibly taking me?’ You wondered.
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.

Since Leukosias death two years had passed already now. During this time, a lot had happened. Firstly, Minako and you left your guild Tears of Mermaids and joined Sabertooth. In addition you had renounced your pearls and Linde and the other were now in Minakos hands. You entrusted her with them since Linde and Minakos Unison Raid got them closer. And it was good this way, because after this you were able to concentrate on your shadow magic. Since you also had a very good teacher. Rogue.
The relationship with Rogue was initially relatively awkward at first. It was for both of you an unusual situation, but Rogue seemed to have temporarily more trouble expressing his affection than you did.
He had, for example, rarely taken the initiative when it came to the exchange of kisses or hugs and even when you wanted to go out with him. You had to "persuade" him because he had never asked by himself. And because of this lack of shown affection you doubted Rogue's love for you at first.

The harsh sunrays of the new day appeared through the open window. With a weary moan you opened your eyes and saw that you were in an unfamiliar room. The walls were made of stone and it almost looked like an ancient chamber, yet you felt a warmth and pleasant atmosphere when you looked at the bare walls.
"Where…am I?" You mumbled still half asleep and tried to sit up. But a severe pain in your stomach made you fall back. "Ow..."
Now you remembered again what had happened. You had fought Tarana, but when you wanted to destroy the Abyss pearl, everything went black and from that point you couldn’t remember anything else.

Beside him stood another man with blond spiky hair and a bored facial expression. The blonde crossed his arms behind his head and yawned. "Now that we found Frosch, can we head back now? I'm tired."
