"UGH!" I exclaim, still running about the dense forest in a frantic search to find
him. "WHERE CAN YOU POSSIBLY BE HIDING?!" I look around more. "Stop running...
you're treating this like a game..." I mutter, still repulsed that he would leave the
entire family behind at a time like this.
Ever since Zack died, Cloud hasn't been
himself around. Tifa and I have been
searching but where to look?
"CLOUD, YOU HAD BETTER GET YOUR ASS OUT HERE!!" I shout, yet again searching, this
time in the Forgotten City. This time I knew he was there because I had smelled him
and the nose never lies. He sheepishly steps out from behind a tree. "Hi, Age..." he
says in his soft voice. Rather than shout at him as I had planned to, I throw my arms
around him. Then, upon letting go, continue as planned. "CLOUD WHAT THE HELL WERE YOU
THINKING, RUNNING OFF LIKE THAT AND LEAVING TIFA BEHIND!?!?" I shout in one breath.
He looks down at the ground and even blushes a bit. "I just..." he says, and as
always, doesn't finish.
As I settle down to sleep, I think about what Cloud had said, about him being sick
and the world about to end. I wonder if I was right to let him wander alone rather
than bring him back home to Tifa. I hate hide 'n' go seek.
