Possessed - Ch. 2Possessed - Ch. 2"There he is everyone!" shouted a female voice. Squall looked up from the floor he was staring at, and found almost he whole ballroom looking at him. He blushed, and tried to edge his way to the exit, but his friends caught up with him.Zell was first. "Ah, I knew you always loved Rinoa," he said."Can it.""Hey, so our lone wolf here can't take a joke, can he?""I said shut up.""Actually you said 'Can it'.""Just shut up, okay?" he said, hoping no one else would hear them arguing.Too late. Irvine showed up, with a nervous looking Selphie on his arm."So, what's this I hear about you kissing Rinoa and spilling the beans on your past?" he asked."Drop dead," was the response."Hey!""Irvine, I'm sorry," apologized Squall. "But she," he glared at Selphie. "Caught Rinoa and I by surprise.""Oh. But, what if it wasn't her? What if you thought it was her, but it was someone else?""Oh please Irvine. I know that high pitched weird laugh of hers. Everyone does. I ha
Possessed - Ch. 1PossessedA FFVIII FanficOn Balamb Garden, a celebration party is taking place..."Squall Leonhart, you are going to help with the Garden committee, right?" asked Selphie Tilmitt."Whatever..." was the reply."Come on! You promised!" whined Selphie."If it means you'll stop bugging me, then yes!" said Squall in a frustrated tone."Okay, okay. Geez, you don't have to bite my head off.""What if I want to?" he asked."Oh be quiet. Now, I need some ideas for the celebration dance we're going to have for us. You know, because we saved the world and everything. You don't have any, do you?""No.""Thought so.""And you forgot again," said Squall. "That I fought Ultimecia with you. And I was the one who kicked her ass.""Was not!""Was too.""Was not!""Was too.""Will you two break it up?" came a voice. Both spun around, and saw Rinoa standing there."Uh..." was their response."Figures. Come on. Look outside. It's such a lovely day. How can you two fight on a day like this?"
Promise Me Forever - Ch. 2Promise Me Forever - Ch. 2Cloud sat up in his makeshift tree house, and stared up at the sky. 'Just my luck,' he thought. 'Of all the places to have an island, there has to be one a ways off from Mideel.' Cloud paused, still lost in his thoughts. 'But hey, it saved my life, so I'm not complaining.' He cast his mind around for another minute, until it fell on a person he thought about daily.'Aeris,' he thought. 'How are you? Do you miss me? Do you know where I am?' After a moment he added, 'No, of course you don't. No one does. This is the Bermuda Triangle. What person would dare come after me, for fear of getting lost like I am.'Cloud stared up at the bright blue sky covered in clouds. 'Oh, how I miss you Aeris. I long to see your face, to hear your laughter.'Cloud sighed in depression. Who was he kidding? He would never see his beloved Aeris again. She would be heart broken, but Cloud hoped she would move on.He rested for another minute, then left his tree house to go look
Promise Me Forever - Ch. 1Promise Me Forever - Ch. 1Yet another Cloud & Aeris romanceTen years ago, on Cloud and Aeris' wedding night..."Cloud...?" asked Aeris Strife."Mmmm...?" he responded."Do you remember...the promise you made? Back in my church?""...Yeah. Why?""Did you really mean it?" she inquired."Of course.""But why?" she asked him. "You hardly knew me.""Because you had no one to protect you. And now that we're married, I intend to keep it.""Cloud..." Was all she was able to say."I love you," he said simply."I love you too," she said."Always and forever..." he murmured, about to fall asleep."Promise me forever Cloud," she said, hoping to get a reply before he nodded off. "Promise me you'll stay by my side, and never leave me. Promise you'll stay through thick and thin, 'til death do us part. "Cloud's eyes opened for a moment at her request, but he just smiled. Aeris sighed as he rolled over and stroked the side of her face and looked deep into her jade green eyes."I promis
Heartbreak - Ch. 4Heartbreak - Ch. 4The subway train slowly rocked back and forth as it shot down the track. Cloud's head lolled over to land against the window, and he subconsciously moaned. A second later, he opened his eyes."What the
?" he muttered as he rubbed his eyes and blinked rapidly to clear them. When his vision returned, he looked around and remembered where he was."Damn," he murmured as he thought about the look Aeris had worn when he'd walked out of their house. 'I'm sorry Aeris, but it couldn't be helped,' he thought.'I'm sorry Aeris, but it couldn't be helped,' entered Aeris' mind. She smiled and nodded, even though there was no one near her. 'I know Cloud,' she thought back, knowing he could hear her because they both had a bit of psychic abilities, her more than Cloud though. 'I know, and it's alright. I'm coming to meet you
. I want to be with you. Together we will find our daughter.'Theresa sighed in relief as she took her first steps for the first time in over
Heartbreak - Ch. 3Heartbreak - Ch. 3Theresa stared up at the ceiling. Even though she'd only been in the hospital for about a day, she was already bored. But she knew her parents might check local hospitals and other places, so she knew she had to get out as soon as possible.A loud noise made her look to the door. She smiled when she saw a nurse trying to restrain David from entering her hospital room."Please... Just let me in!" pleaded David as he fought to get around the nurse."I'm sorry sir, but that would be breaking hospital rules. You will have to wait until visiting hours.""To hell with the visiting hours!"That did it. Though Theresa put a hand over her mouth to hide her amusement, she burst out laughing. Both the nurse and David stopped arguing, and they turned to look at her."What's so funny?" David finally asked.Theresa just grinned, then looked at the nurse. "Please ma'am," she said quietly. "Just let him stay for five minutes. No longer, no less. Then I'll kick him out, and he
