Is it possible to be with someone for so long without knowing you're in love?
I know this might sound like another cheap fairy tale but to tell you the truth, I don't believe in such things; but I do believe in second chances.
I think it's stupid to believe that people fall in love at first sight for no reason. Even if the person is good enough for you, there's no proof that she or he will be the right one, until you know each other. Unfortunately, that's not my case...
I've known my best friend ever since I was a child. We grew up together in the same place until fate took us apart and changed the course of our lives. We fought alongside against the evil that plagued humanity and its remnants. We became real close during these events and now we're living together under the same roof with two kids.
No, we're not a couple and yes, we do like each other but not in that way you think. Even after all we've been through, there's still not a single hint that me and her are right for each oth

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

Breakfast.. Kim said as she lifted a plate.
Yeah. Kim said with a smile.
Shego smiled and then looked at Kims hand that was lying on her own.
Oh.. Sorry. Kim said as she removed her hand.
Hey,.. no big. Shego said with a smirk.
Kim sat down next to Shego and looked at her.
Did you eat?
Hmm? Oh.. yes..
Before or after you made this?
Kim raised her eyebrow and looked at Shego. Why.. does it matter?
Shego just raised her eyebrow.
After.. Alright? Kim said and she crossed her arms. Eat up.. or do you want me to feed you?
Ill just handle that myself. Shego said with a chuckle.
Ill give you some clothes that you can wear today.
Shego looked up at Kim and frowned. Kimmie.. I can wear my suit..

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.
Disclaimer: I don't own Final Fantasy VII and its characters. The song that I used as reference is sung by Vienna Teng.
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

A few minutes later she opened her eyes again and smirked, the car had gone away.

A red haired woman stirred in her sleep as her mobile rang.
Hmmm.. She mused as she took her mobile. She let out a deep sigh before she took it. Kim Possible.

Cant you send another unit, Wade?" Kim asked as she rubbed her eyes.
No.. Everyones busy..

A Kiss under the MistletoeAfter the dinner, everyone returned to their respective homes while Tifa puts the kids to sleep. They were still excited about Christmas and they couldn’t wait until morning to open their presents. Tifa stayed with them for a while until they finally succumbed to sleep. She took the opportunity to go wake Cloud (who was still asleep in his room) and put the Christmas presents under the tree.A Kiss under the Mistletoe2 years ago in Romance More Like This
“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.

He Ogles When No One's Watching~ Cloud didn't bother to hide his smirk as he was pulled back into their shared bedroom. This was, without a doubt, the best birthday ever. ~He Ogles When No One's Watching3 years ago in Romance More Like This
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,
What's on Your Mind?~ Cloud frowned, but decided that he had nothing to lose anymore. Marlene was a girl. She probably knew how Tifa's mind worked better than him...even if he was her lover. ~What's on Your Mind?2 years ago in Romance More Like This
Rule 1. Don't ask us what we're thinking about unless you are prepared to discuss topics such as football or motor sports.
It was another delightfully lazy Sunday. Since all chores were finished, Cloud, Tifa, Denzel and Marlene had more than enough time to spend some time together. They'd all agreed that the best way to do that was by playing their most favorite game in the world: 'I Have Never.'
At the moment, it seemed that Marlene was winning, because she still had four fingers up. Denzel and Tifa had three and Cloud had two, meaning that he was in the danger zone. The one who had the most fingers left after everyone else had none, was the winner and he or she was allowed to give the loser a mandatory task. Marlene was known for giving the most surprising comma

Meanwhile, Denzel and Marlene had gone shopping with Tifa to get some groceries for tonight's dinner. Both were very excited since this would be the first time they would spend Christmas with Cloud and the others. While Tifa was picking the food, Denzel and Marlene were having a discussion about Santa Claus.
"Of course he is real!" Marlene claimed.
"No, he is not!" Denzel replied.
"Yes, he is!"
"No, he's not!"
"Yes, he is!" Marlene shouted.
"Hey, what's with the yelling?" Tifa came in and tries to calm them down.
"Denzel keeps saying that Santa Claus doesn't exist." Marlene frowned.
"Is that so..." Tifa tilted her head to see his face. "And why is that?" she asked nicely.
"Because he is not real." He shrugged. "Is just a lame excuse that all grown ups say to make us believe in magic and stuff.

Rule 1. When we have to go somewhere, absolutely anything you wear is fine... Really.
"I'm sorry it's taking me so long, Cloud," Tifa said apologetically from a spot where he couldn't see her.
A soft gasp was heard when she, by the sound of it, bumped some part of her against the wall.
"It's okay. Take your time, no need to rush," Cloud said, sitting on their shared bed and leaning back slightly.
To any other person, that might have sounded extremely sarcastic, but he knew that Tifa knew him long enough to realize that he was being serious. Thank goodness for that, because he was nowhere without the beautiful bartender by his side.
They were supposed to go to a costumed Halloween party, but of course, getting ready took a bit longer for Tifa. Different clothing items were lying everywhere in the room; from the floor to the bed.
Cloud was pretty much dressed as...himself (which Yuffie would

Always On Your Side
The first day was the hardest. When she woke up the next morning and realized his bed was empty, he was no longer in the house, and was probably never coming back, she almost wanted to just curl up and die. Tifa pulled the covers over her head and buried her face into her pillow. For the first week, all she ever did was cry. Never infront of the children, never infront of the customers, although the absence of her cheerful demeanor did not go unnoticed. Still, every day she would let everything out in the morning, pull herself together to run her business and take care of her family, and maybe sometimes in private she would have a moment or two to feel sorry for herself.
Everything she had worked for had felt so betrayed. Maybe it was silly of her to hold on to the hope that someday he'd learn to love her. Maybe it was stupid to think that she might someday replace what he had lost when he lost Aeris. But she had worked so long and so hard for that dream to b

That morning, I was preparing myself to leave for Condor Fortress. They offered me a temporary job and I was going to be out for a couple of days. I didn't tell Tifa what kind of job it was, because I knew that she wouldn't approve; and besides, I didn't want her to get worried.
I said goodbye to the children and Tifa. It was really hard for me to leave them like that, so they all gave me something for the trip.
Marlene gave me a drawing with all of us in it. Even Yuffie was in it, but I didn't complain because as much as I hate to admit it, she's been really helpful around the kids and Tifa.
Denzel gave me a small feather. He said it was for good luck. Though, I found it ironic that he gave me a Chocobo feather instead of a Phoenix Down.
Tifa gave me a kiss on the cheek, which made me blush like an idiot. Marlene found it hilarious and Denzel thought it was disgusting. I bet he won't find it disgusting when he starts to like girls.
Anyway, I took off after that and

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

A few hours later, Tifa finished with the cleaning and went upstairs to her room to get some rest. As she walks to her room, she passes through Cloud's bedroom and stops in front of the doorway. 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.
"What were you doing outside of my room?" he asked her as he sits on his bed.

It's been a week since he left. I know he said he would be out for a couple of days, but this is taking too much for me to handle.
A few days ago, Cloud came back from a delivery from Condor Fortress and he said they offered him a job. It was something temporary but it would take a while to get it done and the pay will be high. He accepted the offer and promised he would come back as soon the job was done.
I can't help thinking what kind of job he's doing there, but whatever it is, I just hope he's okay. I don't want him to get hurt or anything. I know he's strong and he can take care of himself, but no matter what I do, I just can't stop worrying about him.

The scene was ruined though by the trails of hot, scarlet blood that tainted the pure ground around his sides.
His breathing was labored and his body racked with pain. Everywhere, in every fiber of his body, there were unbearable aches. He could hear his heart beating in his head, blocking out all of the sounds around him. Ironically, his sight was still clear. Clear enough to see pair of wine red eyes fall over him.
Those were the first words that he could hear through the thumping sound in his brain. From what he could make out, she seemed terrified. It was all he could make out.
LC - SunriseAt some point the gentle darkness of unconsciousness had become suffocating, denying him the last of his hope, leaving him to nightmares beyond the imagination of any normal person and suffering a fate that nobody should have to endure. He couldnt move; it was increasingly difficult to breathe. It was torture - the confining shadows winding in icy tendrils around his throat as the coldest hands hed ever felt tightened slowly on his most sensitive vulnerability. It was terror in its purest form, and yet worse than hed imagined, worse than hed feared; because, no matter how hard his eyes strained to make sense of colours and shapes impossible to distinguish, one fact remained. One that would keep him unresisting to the force around him, holding him in place, holding him helpless.LC - Sunrise8 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

It was plainly obvious that he couldn't kill it the same way he had the last time, seeing as that apparently hadn't worked out. Then that raised the question of how he was supposed to go about this. He didn't have the same power he'd had last time AND he'd also had help. There was no one to help now. But he wasn't about to let that stop him from winning. It was do or die with a summon as monstrous as this and as far as Cloud was concerned, dying wasn't an option. He held his sword at the ready as the giant summon lifted its massive metal paw to strike. Gripping the sword with both hands, he brought it up with a swift move to block. The force of the blow against his defense was enough to jar his elbows and he had to grit together, tightening his grip in order to maintain the pressure his sword put between him and the enemy. With a flourished stroke, he twisted to the side and slashed his sword through the air, connecting with and managing to cut off three of its claws. It b
