“Cloud, wake up.” She shook him slightly and caressed his face.
Cloud stirred under her gentle touch and grunted as protest.
“Wha...What is it?” He said drowsily.
“The children are asleep.” She whispered softly.
He yawned. “Ah... Good.” He laid his head back on his pillow.
“Come on, you silly!” She shook him again. “We have to hurry before they wake up again.”
“Alright, alright... I’m up.” He stood up drowsily and rubbed his eyes before stretching his body.

Summary: Cloud is having trouble sleeping because of the huge thunderstorm that was falling outside and goes into Tifa's room to seek shelter. She sings to him a lullaby to reassure him and ease his anxiety.

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

He had made plans to meet at a nice restaurant for dinner, so I closed the bar that day and went shopping with Yuffie all day long to prepare for the lovely evening. I was so excited because something told me that this would be the night that I he was going to propose and I wanted to look good for him.
When I got back, I saw him sitting on the couch reading some sort of manual. As usual, I went to greet him with a chaste kiss on his cheek, but he didn't reply back. At first, I thought he was upset at the fact that I was a bit late, but he made no comment on it. I went upstairs to get change and after a few minutes I came down wearing my new outfit. I was hoping he would say something to complement me about my new

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,

After hearing the bell, Denzel gathered his things and headed home to 7th Heaven.
Along the way, he met a group of children, some kids a little bigger than him. Denzel ignored them and tried to walk past them until one of the children stepped in his way, forcing Denzel to stop. The other three children began to gather around him and Denzel tried to escape; running as fast as he can. When he reached a corner, his foot stumbled against a curb and fell to ground.

Cloud was having a nightmare in the middle of the night, when suddenly, Tifa went to his room to see what was wrong with him.
Cloud was fighting in his sleep and Tifa does her best to wake him, but as much as she tried she couldn't. The dream was too deep and the more he struggled, the more intense the nightmare became. The dream was tormenting him and he growled in anguish as his breathing became increasingly agitated.
It is said that when a dream is too intense, it's better to let the person who is dreaming to wake up slowly, otherwise the dreamer will not be able to distinguish reality and could cause a severe trauma.
Tifa felt helpless for not being able to help and stayed with him until he could calm down. Cloud on the other hand, was still fighting in his sleep and Tifa tried to reassure him stroking his face with her hands.
"It's okay... Everything will be all right... I promise." She whispered softly.
Little by little, Cloud's breathing began to calm down slowly. Tifa wiped the

Tifa had been hit by the explosion which caused her to come out flying in the air.
Cloud was petrified after realizing the damage he had caused. His throat became dry. He widened his eyes when he saw her beautiful body covered in blood. At that instant, he felt that something burst into his chest and had trouble breathing.
He dropped his sword on the floor and made haste to where Tifa lay and quickly took her in his arms.
"Tifa! Tifa!" He called desperately but she didn't answer. Frustrated, he began to shake her in order to wake her but still, no answer. Cloud was about to lose it when he heard a slight gasp coming from her.
"...Cloud..." she said weakly.
"Cloud..." she coughed. "I'm so sorry..." her voice was soothing.
"Shh, don't talk. Everything is going to be okay..." he cupped her cheek in his hand.
"Cloud... I..." she coughed more blood.

"I... love... you..." her voice trailed off. His eyes widened, filled with tears. And with her last breath

"Cuddle with me"
It was a day like any other in Seventh Heaven. Tifa had been working all day without a break in the bar, while Cloud made his deliveries. Cloud and Tifa began living together as a family along with Denzel and Marlene; although neither of them had confessed their feelings, deep down inside they knew they needed each other.
A few days ago, Barrett returned from his oil field in Corel to take care of some business in the city, and during that time he had to stay in Edge until he closed the deal. Tifa told him to stay in the bar, but Barrett had to reject the offer because he didn't want to become a bother. Tifa insisted that he shou

That morning, I got up very early and took a quick shower to start fresh the day.
As usual, I went to the children's room to wake them up and then headed to the kitchen to make some breakfast.
After the breakfast, I put the dishes in the sink and went upstairs to help the children to get ready for school. Denzel was old enough to prepare himself for school, so I helped Marlene instead.
After I said goodbye to the children, I headed back inside to start to do the housework.
It was a lovely day in Seventh Heaven and for some reason I was in a very good mood, so I took the day off and went to make a few errands before opening the bar.
It was almost time to open the bar, so I speeded up on Fenrir to get there on time. I was so eager to see their faces when they realized that I was back. I specially wanted to surprise Tifa, but I knew I had to be cautious, so I stopped a few blocks away and pushed Fenrir all the way to the bar.

The door opens. She takes a slight step back, a bit in shock. Cloud stood there, his expression somber, dried tears on his cheeks.
"Tifa… sorry I was asleep." Cloud gives a soft smile, making Tifa smile somewhat herself.
"You had me worry for a minute there." Tifa says, scratching the back of her neck. "Now come on. Everyone is waiting for you to…" Cloud looks away from Tifa, his somber expression returning. "What's the matter? You ok Cloud?" Tifa reaches for his hand, which he pulls away quickly.

Once again, Cloud went to her bedroom to try to talk to her.
He knocked a few times but there was no response. He opened the door carefully and saw that she was fast asleep with her back to him. He entered the room quietly and then closed the door behind to approach the bed. Slowly, he circled the bed to study her sleeping form. She was still clenching to her pillow, which means that she fell asleep while crying.
Cloud's face saddened to see her curled up in a ball and sat on the edge of her bed to watch her sleep. Her cheeks were still covered with a few tears and he tried to wipe them off with the back of his hand. As he did so, Tifa stirred under his gentle touch and she opened her eyes to meet a pair of blue orbs. Cloud smiled tenderly and Tifa rose from her bed quickly to face him.

Cloud's expression softened when he saw her concern and he shook his head slightly to
CloTi- Come HomeTifa hummed softly to herself, the sweet and cheerful tune could be heard from all over the silent bar. She had been left to clean the office, since Cloud was never around long enough to clean up his own mess of papers. Cloud... He was never here anymore. Always making deliveries or taking a few side jobs from Rufus. Tifa missed him more than she would ever admit. When he was gone, she felt so lonely, even while she was surrounded by people. She didn't feel whole, like whenever he leaves he takes half of her heart with him. Tifa sighed as she finished with the office, moving downstairs and back to the bar. Cloud never payed attention to her, never answering or even returning her calls. She was constantly worrying about him. She was afraid that someday he may never come back, getting himself killed in action or something. Tifa furrowed her eyebrows and scrubbed the counter the more she thought about it.

She stares at his door for a moment while she gets lost in her thoughts. She wanted to see him one more time, just to make sure that he was still there. She approached to the door and came to the handle to take a look but was stopped by a husky voice speaking from the other side.
"Tifa? Is that you?" Cloud asked puzzled. Tifa froze when she heard her name and tries to hide behind the door. After hearing no response, Cloud invites her to come into his room. "It's okay, you can come in." he smirked. Tifa took a deep breath and let out a sigh. Slowly, she opened the door and walked into the room.

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.

I could feel his arms wrapping all around me, the warmth of his breath down my neck, his lips on mine. I could touch his silky spikes and intertwine them in my fingers. I could feel my hands on his chest, I could feel HIM, there, with me. I wanted to see him, make this moment last forever, so I opened my eyes.
The sunlight from the window made me squint, so I brought up my hand to create a shadow for my eyes to adjust. I looked on his side of the bed, but I was alone. The covers were wrapped around me. "Was last night only a dream?" I thought, and started to panic. I tore off the covers and frantically looked down at myself. I was still wearing the same clothes from last night, not my usual pjs. My shoes were off, but there was no sign of his shoes, or his clothes, or any of his stuff here...
My chest heaved up and down, each breath seeming to weigh much more than the last. My head swiveled all around the room, looking for any sign that he could have been here. "It couldn't have been a

When I woke up again, I was lying on a small bed with my wound wrapped and treated. My head was pounding again when I shifted my weight on my good side and realized that I wasn't in my hotel room. My eyes widened slightly and I held my breath, but when my eyes wandered to the blond man asleep in a chair, I knew I was safe and let my breathing go back to normal. I smiled slightly at the sight and sat up, making the bed creak. Cloud's eyes shot open and was about to jump to his feet, in case something was wrong, but settled down once he knew everything was okay.
"You seem pretty uptight." I said in a scratchy voice and laughed, causing my throat to hurt. But I didn't get a response from him, he just sat there and stared at me with distant, glossy eyes. I flinched away slightly, his gaze was so weird, so off. Cloud never acted this way around me, I knew something was wrong. "What...?"

Okay. So Tifa had been seeing Noirceur, and the kids were obviously having a ball with the guy. The both of them had fought before, and their relationship staled.
It had already been a month. Sure, they still communicated, but not like before. Not anymore. Cloud felt devoid of everything, as though his happiness was starting to leave his grasp, not like before, where he tried to avoid it.
Would he lose everything because of Noirceur? Would he lose the peace he had because of his own ego?
When he said a silent prayer, he hoped someone would hear it.
But it was useless. He was alone in the house.
When Tifa and the children came home, she noticed the untouched food on the counter, and the mug of spilled coffee as well.
An alarm rang in her head. Did something happen to him? She immediately went upstairs and rushed to Cloud's room.

"Tifa, where did this come from?"
Tifa glanced up from the sink to see Marlene tilting her head at the vase sitting on the end of the bar. "Oh, do you like it?" she asked with a smile, moving to refill Denzel's glass of orange juice. She got a muffled 'fank you 'ifa' in reply, and gently scolded him for talking with his mouth full again.
Marlene nodded, putting her toast down and jumping off her stool to go and smell the flowers in the vase. "They smell really pretty!" she proclaimed, reaching out to brush the petals of the flowers. "Did you buy the vase too?"
Tifa shook her head, returning her attention to the coffee mug she was cleaning. "No, it was just something I had lying around the bar. I think Barret gave it to me when he brought those flowers for your birthday this year," she replied, smiling softly.
Denzel finally swallowed and turned his head to look at the flowers
