Things had been a tough ride since day one, and Cid knew that things would be no different today; he and Vincent didn't exactly see eye to eye. They were too different, and both stubborn, once they stood their ground, neither would budge; Cid thought back, to the day they met, it wasn't long before they were shooting glares at each other. They couldn't get along, they forced themselves to be in the same room when needed. Tifa and Barret's wedding...All they managed was a 'hello' before they couldn't stand to be around each other. The party afterwards was the same too. They were okay with sitting at the bar, together; after a few drinks, they found it easier to talk.

Vincent asked Cid if he could stay in the airship, he knew being drunk he wouldn't be able to find anywhere else safe. Cid agreed in his intoxicated state, and they both barely made it to his airship before they were kissing, grabbing at each others clothes. And the sex, it was amazing, both of them pent up and in need; Cid had never felt better being in bed with someone, and the best thing he remembered was that Vincent rode him, now, that sight was embedded into his brain.

They hadn't spoken to each other since then; when they woke together, Vincent dressed in a rush and left without looking back. Cid felt strange, he hadn't wanted Vincent to leave...It was the first time that he'd had positive feelings about the ebony-haired man, it was strange but he liked it and, he wanted Vincent back.

Cid knew where Vincent would be, he needed to get the courage to go there and speak to the older-male; Cid felt sick just thinking of it. Not because he loathed Vincent, in fact, now he thought the opposite and he was sure that the sex didn't open his mind; he barely remember what happened, only that they were a lustful mess of bodies, sweat and groans of pleasure.

It was when he woke that Cid felt as if he'd been hit with a tonne of bricks, and that wasn't the hangover, it was the way that Vincent was snuggled into his chest, breathing softly and obviously still fast asleep; Cid wished that they could stay in the moment forever, his fingers running through Vincent soft hair.

But of course, much to his dismay, the moment was ruined; his finger caught a knot in Vincent's hair and the man woke with a start. He looked horrified and scrambled from the bed, quick to cover up his flesh, before he bolted; Cid left bewildered and wondering if Vincent had remembered anything.

Knowing his instincts though, and the way those four demons were...Cid realised that Vincent would probably know by now. And he had to wonder more than anything what the reaction would be if he went and found his gloomy companion; he didn't want them to end there, and he certainly didn't want to lose Vincent.

Without another thought, Cid took off for the very cave he knew that Vincent would be finding solace in; when he arrived, he made sure that his ship was out of sight then carefully made his way up the rocky surface, until he came to the mouth of the cave. In stead of finding Vincent moping, he saw a somewhat happy man sat there, and he heard the words that Vincent muttered to the crystal.

"What do I do? I buried my feelings with you a long time ago, replaced it with loathing, hate, envy...Anything negative, and now Cid...It feels so right with him. I don't know how I should react to this. Will he even feel the same? I feel like I'm going to chase a stupid feeling and get burnt again."

A soft noise caught Vincent's ears and he turned, his eyes scanning the area; when he found nothing, he turned back to Lucretia's crystal and sighed. He rested his arms on his knees then laid down his head, feeling frustrated and unworthy; his demons had repeated everything to him, and he couldn't believe that he was such an idiot. He never meant for anyone to see him the way he was, let alone Cid getting to see, and what they did...A stupid drunken mistake, that's what he told himself, it shouldn't have happened.

When Cid saw how Vincent was, he felt his heart drop into his stomach; he silently made his way over to the gunman and crouched beside him, instantly pulling Vincent's thin body into his muscular arms. Vincent barely registered the change, it wasn't until one of his demons perked up that he realised what was going on and why the embrace felt so familiar; he turned as best as he could and wrapped his arms around Cid, burying his head into the crook of the pilots neck.

They simply stayed like that for a few minutes, trying their hardest to express their feelings without speaking; it was Cid that finally broke the embrace, but not to pull away. Instead, he pressed his lips to Vincent's in a better attempt at explaining how he felt; he was never good with words after all, and this felt so right to him.

Vincent's initial shock of the kiss wore off almost immediately, and he returned the gesture, his fingers knotting into the back of Cid's shirt; their lips had a slight battle, Cid winning out and getting to explore Vincent's mouth with his tongue. He remembered kissing Vincent, but now, sober, it felt much more amazing than he could have ever imagined.

Vincent's tongue battled with Cid's, the pilot ultimately gave in, feeling slightly more breathless when Vincent's tongue prodded at ever inch of his mouth; eventually, they broke the kiss, needing to breathe better, both panting softly from the heat between them. For once, Cid felt speechless, the way Vincent's red eyes were half-lidded, a glossy look mesmerising Cid; the pilot opened his mouth to speak, without thinking, "I love you."

Those three beautiful words pierced through Vincent as if he'd been shot by his own gun, he held onto Cid tighter and sighed softly into Cid's ear, "I love you, too..." That was it, no questions about it; he knew from the way Cid had looked at him that he wasn't being played, and that kiss felt like it had more than love in there, Vincent didn't know what it was but he loved it...And he did love Cid, after all.

The glee that ran through Cid's body was unexplainable, he wanted to pick Vincent up and run away with him forever; he managed to calm some of his happiness though and simply smiled as he held his Vincent close, "I wanna be with you, forever." The sincereness in Cid's voice even surprised himself, he never thought he could be so forth-coming, but with Vincent, everything seemed so different...Perfect, almost.

"I'd like that, Cid." Vincent smiled, content with where he was; he could feel love now, just laying in Cid's arms. It felt nice to have someone there for him, someone that he could rely on; despite how things were with Cid before, everything seemed great now. Vincent knew he was replacing his positive feelings with negative ones; so he didn't get rejected and Cid didn't get hurt, being like this proved to Vincent, that Cid was more than capable of looking after, not only himself, but both of them.

They happily stayed there for a while longer, cuddled up and content; it wasn't until they both started feeling a little sore that they decided to move. It was Cid who took Vincent's hand and led him to the airship, but he didn't take off, he whisked his new boyfriend into his cabin.

Much to Vincent's surprise, the pilot laid him down on the bed then joined him, and they simply cuddle; both tired, Vincent from staying in that awkward cave, and Cid from flying. They both happily gave into their sleepy-state, more than content with being wrapped together, both peacefully dreaming about their futures with each other.

The last thought Cid had before fully drifting off was how perfect it was for all this to fall into place on Valentine's day; it seemed like it was destined to happen all along...And Cupid's arrow had seemed to creep up on them both before they even had chance to realise how deep they were tied together...
It felt wrong. But it was right...They belonged together.

For the :iconvalenwind-luvers: Valentine-Valenwind contest.

I like how you worked the whole change in their relationship and the effects of passion on perception into it. Vincent's confession to Lucrecia was also good. Good luck in the contest.

I really liked this.
Especially how Cid acts on his feeling and follows Vincent.

The image of them snuggled together made me melt
