The next morning, I woke up with a heavy tiredness because of the lack of sleep I had last night. I slept for only 4 hours or less and I was still feeling a bit drowsy. But even so, I didn’t complain about it. I needed to vent a few things and last night really helped me out with the stress that I was developing from work.
As usual, I got out of bed to take a cold shower and then went to get myself some coffee to start the day. As expected, Tifa and the children were still sleeping upstairs, so I tried to not make too much noise so I wouldn't wake them. I took my things and then went to work on Fenrir.

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