Rule 1. Yes and No are perfectly acceptable answers to almost every question.
Cloud was sure of only one thing, and that one thing mattered the most right now: he was in heaven. He just had to be, because Tifa knew exactly what to do to make him feel good. She was a massage goddess. All those years of her strength training hadn't changed anything about her gentleness, thank gods. She knew when and where to apply more pressure and where to be extra careful to alleviate the stress. It was as though she could read his mind. Quite honestly, Cloud couldn't possibly think of a better way to spend his first moment of summer vacation...or the rest of it, really. He was far too tired to do something else today. Fortunately for him, Tifa understood completely. Mor

They finally got to Aerith's house. A smaller mansion behind the Shinra mansion.
I only got here because of Cloud. Aerith thought.
"Thank you Cloud."
Cloud smiled, "Your welcome. I'll see you tomorrow."
Cloud started to walk away.
Cloud stopped, "No, I can't stay here. I have to get to the Solider headquarters."
How did he know what I was going to say? Aerith thought.
"Okay.. see you tomorrow!"
Cloud then walked away, and Aerith ran into her home...
"Good night Mom!"
"Good night sweet heart."
Aerith then ran off to bed.
I don't know what to do... Cloud is using me. He only wants to become 2nd class solider. He doesn't really want to spend time with me. Aerith thought.
Aerith was tossing and turning thinking about Cloud.

It was a peaceful night at Seventh Heaven. The place was so quiet that you could hear the drops of tap water on the sink. It was almost midnight and everyone was sleeping peacefully; all except for Cloud.
Once again, Cloud woke up in the middle of the night because of his terrible nightmares.
Everynight was the same for him. No matter how hard he tried he just couldn't sleep at all. He's been having the same dream lately and it frustrates him because he doesn't understand the meaning of that particular dream; and so he stays up every night trying to figure out what it meant.
Unable to sleep, Cloud rose from his bed and sat on the edge of the bed for a moment. He put a hand on his forehead and rubbed it to calm his thoughts.
Tifa, who was laying beside him, turned around and saw him sitting o

I wasn’t feeling well that particular morning. Probably the lack of sleep. But what bothered me the most was my head flooded with thoughts. I guess I need another cup of coffee.
I was skimming through the daily paper on the corner of the lounge, until my attention turned to a few thumps from the staircase. My heart stopped for a moment when I realized who it was.
Tifa woke at her usual time, busying with what seemed like breakfast ingredients and began to hum a tune while mixing the sloppy batter for pancakes. She didn't notice my presence until she came closer to serve the table in front of the lounge.
“Oh my goodness,” She said surprised, and then exhaled with a hint of laughter. “Sorry, I didn’t see you there.”
“I find that hard to believe.” I raised an eyebrow, amused.
She began setting the plates which gave a loud thudding noise. “Why are you up so early?”
“I uh... My alarm went off before and couldn’t fall as

Rule 1. Let us ogle. We are going to look anyway; it's genetic.
Tifa's hair was still slightly damp by the time she finally retreated to the bedroom that she shared with Cloud, but that didn't matter; by the time Cloud came home, it would be dry and straight again anyway (not to mention silky soft, just the way Cloud liked it. And she loved the way he would run his fingers through her hair). The raven-haired beauty glanced at the alarm clock on the nightstand, seeing that she still had an hour or so left. Perfect. Maybe she could paint her nails deep red or something. Anything that could improve her looks even more.
Admittedly, she never did anything like that, because the paint would chip off within a few hours, what with all the chores she had to do all day. However, since today was Cloud's birthday,

As usual, he was greeted with hugs and smiles from the children. He wasn't exactly a huggable person but he didn't mind either.
While he put some boxes under the counter he sees Tifa in the kitchen. Since today was a holiday, she had to closed the bar early in order to cook the meal for tonight's dinner. It smelled so good in there that as soonest he smell the food, Cloud's stomach started to growl. He quickly reached for the fridge and ate some snacks to ease the hunger; and then he took off for another deliver.
Minutes later, Yuffie arrived to the bar and brought a bunch of Christmas stuff. She took out the ornaments and hand it to the children, so they can start decorating the place. Denzel and Marlene were having a great time putting up with the decorations and they've totally forgot about the Santa Claus issue.
After finishing with the decorations, Cloud came back with more boxes. It has been a very busy day for the Strife Delivery Servic

It was a busy day in the Seventh Heaven bar and Tifa was about to read one of her favorite novels in her bedroom before going to sleep. She had just dispatched all the customers because of the huge storm that was coming and had no choice but to close the bar early. Cloud on the other hand, had to cancel his last minute deliveries and stayed home to do some paperwork.
The hours passed and the storm was already upon them. It made its way through the city, announcing its arrival with loud thunders and lightning. Luckily the kids were not with them that day. Barret had taken them to spend
Paper or Plastic - Scene 3Natalie woke with a choking cough as burning, smokey air entered her lungs. She was on her side on the floor with her arms and legs still tightly held in the plastic wraps embrace. As her eyes fluttered open, she saw the tip of a burning cigarette protruding from the hole in the front of her gag. Hands were on her chin and face, holding it in place as she tried to yank free and pinching her nose shut. A body-shuddering cough spasmed through her as she stretched her mouth as wide as she could around the thick ball, desperate for clean air, but drawing only more of the smoke into her lungs.Paper or Plastic - Scene 37 years ago in Fantasy More Like This

Falling deep into a slumber,
Here I stay,
There I lay.
When will it be my time?
Why do you, seem to be,
Like that one, who I held lovingly?
Two hearts, connected as one,
That guides everyone.
I know you can be strong.
Why do you feel wrong?
Why is your pain unheard?
I will be here, waiting forever.
Until you come, my love….
I will be waiting…
Here where I thought we can be free….
Those sky eyes, happily.
Never seem to lose their glow.
Yet I know,
I will have to go away.
I cannot leave you behind.
While darkness clouds your eyes.
Why is this true?
Because of you two,
I could smile,
In this world for awhile.
I could love again.
Don’t cry my friends.
I’ll always be here…

Who knows what would have happened
If I were in your arms instead of you in my embrace
The trees encased for an eternity was a stark whiteness compared to you
Your pale skin was cold, but the blue water even colder
Ripples lapped my waist and the stagnant air was still able to brush your once-pink cheeks
The flowers may die if left untended
Your dreams would become transient if they were left to sit
These troubled thoughts diffused like red blood in water
But Forgiveness would give you a pair of wings
Meeting you lit a chandelier on my faded world
You deftly colored this unchanging existence
And your smile would replay in my dreams or nightmares?
The sky was colorless and yet, it perfectly reflected your pure innocence
You would do the same if Death took me
Tears would escape your eyes before I can fall to the bottom of the lake

Couldn't bear another day without you in it
All of the joy that I had known for my life
Was stripped away from me the minute that you died
To have you in my life was all i ever wanted
But now without you I'm a soul forever haunted
Can't help but feel that i had taken you for granted
No way in hell that i can ever comprehend this
I wasn't dreaming when they told me you were gone
I was wide awake and feeling that they had to be wrong
How could you leave me when you swore that you would stay
Now i'm trapped inside a nightmare every single f'ing day
It's like a movie but there's not a happy ending
Every scene fades black and there's no pretending
This little fairy tale doesn't seem to end well
Theres no knight in shining armor who will wake me from the spell
I know you didn't plan this
You tried to do what's right
But in the middle of this madness
I'm the one you left to win this fight
