Desperation - Part Two (Final Fantasy VII)Chapter II
It was several hours later when Tifa finally woke up.
Her eyelids blinked and fluttered as her vision slowly returned.
The first thing she noticed was the warmth and the comfort of the double bed beneath her. The second thing she noticed was her dry throat, she felt sick - the effects of the drug. The third thing she noticed was how easily and freely she could move her arms and legs. She hadn't been tied to the bed. Tifa was surprised as most kidnapping victims were usually tied-up, blindfolded and gagged.
Tifa sat up a little and surveyed the room. A small but beautifully decorated room. The lights were dim, there was a hanging chandelier above her, a small table next to the bed and a large wardrobe with a mirror at the far end of the room. There was also a door. Tifa wondered if it was locked and who was at the other side.
Then her memory suddenly came back, hitting her like a bolt of lightning out of the blue.

a/n: thanks for choosing to read my story. I hope you like it.
It had been a long day.
Tifa held the tall glass between her fingers as she took a sip of the ice-cold martini. Pursing her lips, she smiled and looked back at Barrett. He was on his seventh beer of the evening and resting his machine gun arm on the bar table, he turned for a moment to look back at Tifa.
"It's been a long day?" he asked. He took another gulp of beer, and another straight after before resting his glass down.
"Yeah, you could say that. I kind of don't want to go home this evening. Cloud was in an awful mood this morning."
"Again? That kid still ain't grown up, eh?"
"He's usually fine. But since Sephiroth, Cloud hasn't hasn't seemed all there. Like there's something missing."
"So I'm guessin' wedding bells are a long way off then?"
Tifa laughed nervously, the

DISCLAIMER: I don't own anything, Final Fantasy VII belongs to Square.
She couldn't believe it. Cloud proposed to Aeris. It's not that they were engaged that stunned her, it's that Cloud actually asked Aeris to marry him. She thought of how she treated him, always scolding him like he was her child, maybe that's what drove him into the arms of another woman.
"Tifa? Are you okay?" the little girl asked the woman.
"Yeah," Tifa said through the tears. "I'm fine."
"Really? You're crying. I don't think it's happy crying though," the girl said.
"I'm fine Marlene, really."
In reality, Tifa wasn't fine. She felt like someone stabbed her stomach with a knife, and twisted it around a few times. She thought it was unfair. She knew him longer, why would he choose a girl he just met a few months ago? Maybe it was because she knew him longer that he didn't pick her. Maybe he saw her as a friend for too long that it would have been awkward for him
Black, White and Grey All OverBlack, White and Grey All Over
Enchantment Night. A magical night at the Gold Saucer where the rides, the shows and even some of the food, is free for couples that is. And there all alone, on a bench in Wonder Square Tifa sat, sipping away on a slushie that she had had to pay for. And why did she have to pay for it? Because she was the only person at the Gold Saucer without a date.
Vincent had decided to take a walk with Red XIII and cash in on the food he had been missing out on for the last 40 years, she had seen Barrett and Yuffie head toward the Chocobo Races, arguing about who knows what; Cait Sith and Cid, who had already fallen asleep, had stayed at the hotel, and, much to Tifa's dismay, Aeris seized the opportunity to take Cloud on the date she had promised him.
It wasn't that Tifa had a problem with Aeris going on a date with Cloud, Aeris was quickly becoming one of her best friends. It was just that Tifa herself had really been hoping to go with Cloud to Enchantm
If Only Love Was Simple Ch. 6Chapter 6:
The other members of Avalanche had come home the next day tired, wet, unsuccessful, broke and miserable. As Barret swore and carried on in the background, Jessie had explained to Tifa that although the Surface-to-Air missile launcher had hit its target, some of the tweaking she had done to override the "friendly-target" security caused a malfunction and the missile failed to detonate. When they had reached the site of the crash, they discovered that the pilot had been killed, but the executive was nowhere to be found. After spending the rest of the day searching the nearby area for any signs of him, they had returned to their camp and found that they were missing a chocobo and 200 Gil, among other things. What little money they had left, they had been forced to give to the chocobo renter for "losing" the other chocobo and the relentless rain had soaked them to the bone.
Tifa couldn't have felt more guilty. She hadn't just crossed paths with the very same executive the
Connect the DotsConnect the Dots
Connect the Dots. It was a game that Rufus remembered playing as a child. You started with dot #1 and connected the dots in numerical order until you reached the highest number; then when you looked at the outline that was created, it formed a picture.
It had been a slightly amusing game but its simplicity had made him lose interest quickly. On the surface, the game seemed to have had very little value in preparing him for the future. Never in his life did he imagine that mastering the core concepts of such a simple children's game would help him achieve his greatest goals.
Yet there he was, sitting in his office at his desk, engaged in what he found to be a very elaborate game of Connect the Dots. Except this time, besides just connecting the dots, he was also responsible for placing them in the correct positions; and instead of numbers, the dots were now labeled by key words and names.
