As you put some books away on a shelf in the bookstore you run, you wonder if he will be visiting this time again. You worked next door to Seventh Heaven and lived in the apartment upstairs, so when you clear out the rubbish in the back you sometimes see Tifa out there too. Because of this, you and Tifa have become good friends and you often go to Seventh Heaven to have a drink or two.
It all really started when Marlene visited with Denzel in tow and wanted to borrow a book. As she was Tifa’s friend, you allowed her to read books at your store and you had even bought some bean bag chairs and cushions for her to sprawl on while she and Denzel read. It had soon become a regular thing so Barret would leave her with you some days and collect her after his work. On a couple of those days, Cloud had come to get her if Barret was late as Tifa would but she would always be behind the bar. Even though they were only next door it was still a dangerous place.

The two men watching get taken down first, then the one with his hands under your clothes is picked up by his neck and held in the air. Cloud is stood over you, pure anger on his face, and he snarls, “Disgusting men like you should die.” The man choking tries to apologise but he can’t get out a sound. Not willing to listen, Cloud throws him with all his might and the man goes flying. When he crashes to the ground the other two men get up and drag their friend with them, wailing about a crazy guy trying to kill them.
You sit up, wrapping your arms around yourself. You feel dirty and freezing, your jumper and coat too far away to reach. Cloud walks up to the clothes, picks them up and returns, and as he crouches and hands them to you, he says, “If you were Tifa, you would have taken them out already.”
“Sorry,” you seethe through gritted teeth, tears spilling from your eyes, “I’m sorry I’m not as strong as her.” Y

You hummed tunelessly as you walked to your house. Today was your birthday, but you were kind of bummed out. Not because everyone forgot, most of them remembered. Tifa and Yuffie had even taken you out for some girl time. But, one seemed to have forgotten. That person was none other than Cloud Strife.
You considered him to be one of your closest friends, so you expected him to at least say something. You understood that he had to leave from time to time, but couldn't he at least call you? Your head drooped down in defeat, 'Did I do something to upset him? I hope I didn't.' You kicked away a rock by your feet, watching it roll into the street.
Your phone vibrated in your pocket. Your hopes shot up, thinking that it was Cloud. Your heart sank slightly, but not too much. It was a text from Vincent, he had finally acquired a cell phone. It was a simple, yet formal text, wishing you a happy birthday. You smiled and sent him a text back

In Seventh Heaven, you’re tipsy. The gang is having fun but your mind keeps returning to Cloud. He’ll arrive soon and you’re not sure you’ll be able to hang around him in this state. You might slip something without meaning to.

Yuffie cheers, “Cloud! You finally made it!” He walks over, sits beside you and takes the drink Tifa has ready for him, “Thanks, Tifa.”
As you stare, Cloud blushes slightly, “What is it?”
“Nothing,” you stand quickly, smiling, “I’m off. Bye!” Tifa calls, “______, wait!” But you’ve gone.

"Right now is not the time Director..." You nervously stated.
Slipping your hands through the filing cabinet in search of a wanted document, the said man continued to trail kisses up your neck. He breathed as if he was absorbing your soul, uncaring of the fact that you were working.
"Your hair smells wonderful...as always. Are you using a new conditioner?" He half-heatedly said, completely neglecting the first statement.
Earning a sigh from your being, you quickly closed the cabinet in defeat of the ignorant male yearning for your attention. You faced the man as his embrace tightened around you, finally having the perfect kissing angle.
"I already told you, now is not the time for this..." You breathed.
You slightly hated yourself for enjoying his attention at such a bad time, but his soft lips gently pressing against your jawline made you melt. It was a horrid factor that you wanted to slam your head in for, but you couldn't help it. He knew exactly how to make you relax.

You'd been living in Academia a little over a week now, and you still weren't sure that you'd made the right choice in moving here. Hope had offered you a good job, one without the use of electronics, and helped you find a nice place to live, but you were still having a hard time not getting lost. Because of this, Hope came to your home every day and walked you to wherever you needed to go. Luckily the two of you lived close to each other, so it wasn't too far out of the way for him. Today was a little different, he was walking you to where you would spend your first day of work. Once inside the large building in which you were going to be working from now on, Hope turned to you and smiled. “Eventually you'll get the hang of this. I'd say another week or so and you won't need my help at all anymore.”
“I wouldn't be so sure about that if I were you.” You tried to return his enthusiasm, but between the stress of moving, and the fear of

A few loose strands of platinum hair dangled in his view, as if to taunt the strict curve combo that his eyes and eyebrows had displayed. The crystal blue color that stained his orbs were dimmed slightly at the sight before him: A certain motorcycle’s engine, bluntly heated after having participated in a massive steaming fit. Cloud tapped his fingers on the apparatus's glistening metal organs before sighing heavily, slipping his hands out of a pair of gloves and throwing them aside harshly.
He put a thumb up to his jaw as he analyzed the malfunction. It could have easily been a broken fan, but both the clutch and the shroud were in stable condition. Water levels weren't under the minimum, as Zack had oddly taught him. Perhaps there was something wrong with the temperature balance? That was always a possibility.
He looked over to the (h/c) haired girl sitting upon the surface of a wooden bench, laughing hysterically with the owner of the garage. As they engaged in conversation, hi

Footsteps were heard approaching you and you turned to see your husband walk into the hallway to watch with an amused look upon his face. You scowled at the blonde man and rolled your eyes at him.
“Awww! But mum, I can’t rush perfection.” A teenage boy whined, opening the door and emerging from the bathroom. He was the spitting image of his father only he had your eyes. When you didn't reply the teenage boy turned to his father. “Tell her dad.”
You shifted your eyes to rest on Cloud as he spoke up. “He’s got a point honey, we can’t rush the delicate procedure of having our shower and gelling our hair.” He stated with a smirk.
You held back the urge to face-palm herself before sighing and shaking your head. "You're meant to be on my side!” You exclaimed, smackin

Cloud Strife x Reader
‘Where are you now? Cloud?’ You are standing in the kitchen of the 7th Heaven, busy washing the glasses and letting the water from the faucet run down between your hands. You are being careful so everything may look clean and neat, but in the same time your thoughts are in a mess. The kiss he planted on your lips made your senses so agitated and you can still feel the gentle touch of his fingers across your back. It’s been over a week since the last time you saw him, but you never thought that you could become so thirsty for his lips, eager to drown again in the serene blue heavens of his eyes.
Your heart flutters erratically each time his face flashes in your mind; ‘Why do I miss him so much?! I know he’s always busy… but even after he confessed his love to me… doesn’t he miss me back? Why doesn’t he come to see me? Why doesn’t he even c

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.

Looking down at the large stack of papers on his desk, Rufus frowned. “I still don't have everything I need here. As a matter of fact, a large percentage of what's in front of me is what I don't need.” Frustrated, he rubbed between his eyes and sighed.
“I told you I wasn't cut out for secretary work. That's why I asked to be placed elsewhere.” Unapologetic, you crossed your arms and turned up your nose. “Now maybe you'll believe me and put me somewhere where I can actually be helpful.”
Acting as if he hadn't even heard you, Rufus continued his complaining. “You even forgot to bring me a coffee.” He seemed more disappointed with you than he did upset. “However, as you stated, I was warned, so I really shouldn't be surprised.” Placing his elbows on his desk he held his chin in his hands. “Where do you think I should place you? Quite honestly, this is one of the easiest jobs I have to offer you at the moment.”

One of which, Reno, was wearing a Santa hat and walking in a zigzag line through the corridor, constantly running into his partner, Rude. It was obvious that Reno had been partying the whole night away because of his behaviour, although Rufus didn't see why anyone would want to. What was the big deal about Christmas, anyway?
"Ow," Reno muttered, having just collided with a door post. He quickly pushed himself away again and opened his eyes wide, smiling. "I'm all good!"
Yes, Rufus thought, now would be a perfect time for Avalanche to strike me. Seeing as Reno was inebriated and Rude was watching him closely, Avalanche would have an easy time attacking him.

Due to some recent complaints and unforeseen incidents, the executives have requested the following message to be issued to all TURK staff.
MEMO NO.346: Proper use of Electro-Magnetic Rod (EMR)
Overview: The Electro-Magnetic Rod (EMR), originally modelled on the riot-baton and developed by ShinRa experts in technologically enhanced weaponry is designed to be used as an advanced form of crowd calming control and as a first and reliable form of defence for ShinRa TURK operatives. The EMR is collapsible and extendable and may be used with or without the electro impulses designed to quickly and immediately incapacitate an adversary for a short period of time (see EMR operational manual for full details of settings and features.)
Correct Use of EMR, Corporation Guidelines: The EMR should only be used in a hostile situation where the operative requires an effective and readily accessible form of first defence.
