It was so vague then. Hard to understand. After years of not seeing this man he stood before me...right now, on my doorstep. Seventh Heaven, i have to tell him he was the reason for it's upbringing, actually...i have to tell him a lot of things. A twist of fate seemed to have saved him and Cloud. How in the world they managed to escape to Midgar and seek refuge here in their states was beyond me. ShinRa was renowned for their expertise in kidnapping, manipulation....and killing. They never told me the full truth, they didn't want to relive the years of torture and painful memories they had collected over the years. Cloud even now still had nightmares, he had accustomed to not shouting in his sleep however, he always held the nightmares within himself, storing them ontop of the already painful memories. He was strong, mentally and physically, yet like everyone he needed that momentary push to set him straight again. After the many years of receding into himself he had finally come to accept the fact he needed to be the hero everyone looks at him as, and he would always say, jokingly or not "Zack would be proud." We hadn't seen him since their return to Midgar, but we knew he was okay because everyday so far had been one full of sunlight and smiles.
