Valkyrie Cross - Chapter Nine
"Two cheeseburgers with fries, an order of chicken quesadillas and four sodas. We also have an order for stir-fried peppers and a hot turkey sandwich, and make 'em snappy!"
"Oh, I'll give you snappy," Tifa sighed heavily as she took the order slips from Claudia. Since returning to Midgar she and Cloud had moved to the plate, reopened the Seventh Heaven, and gotten married. Business was booming and Tifa's best friend Claudia Addison was the only waitress on that night. She was a bit taller than Tifa, with red hair, green eyes, and an explosion of freckles on her attractive face. She was a good waitress and an even better friend. "Why can't we ever have a slow day?" asked Tifa, pushing a strand of sweat-dampened hair out of her face.
Claudia winked at Tifa, placing her empty tray on the counter and quickly filling it with glasses brimming with soda. "A slow day? What would be the fun in that?"
Tifa couldn't help but chuckle as she turned and strode back over to the grill, fl
Valkyrie Cross - Chapter Seven
The sound of the door swinging shut and locking behind her quickly brought Yuffie's attention away from the young man. She whirled around, ready to yell at whichever guy had tried to scare her, but she was stopped by who she saw.
It was neither Vincent nor Cid, but a woman. She had silver hair and deep brown eyes that were protected by glasses that gave her the look of an intellectual. She was beautiful, with finely cut facial features and creamy pale skin that was unblemished by any type of mark, save for a mole about an inch below her left eye.

The woman's expression was mild, considering the fact that she had found a stranger in the basement of the inn at two in the morning. "Who are you?" she asked, her voice soft but authoritative.
"Uhm sorry I didn't mean to trespass, but

"This had to be your best idea tonight. I've never had so much f#&*%n fun wandering around in the darkness, wondering what I'm going to run into next."
"GAWD! Drop it already! You didn't have to come down here."
"Someone has to be here to save your skinny ass."
Voices again cut through the haze of his sleep and he rose from his resting place. These voices were different from the other ones. Somehow familiar almost too familiar.
"OWW! Dammit Cid, that's my FOOT!"
"If it weren't so dark in here I wouldn't have stepped on you!"
"Bleck! Do you ever brush your teeth, you smell like an ashtray? Don't breathe on me!"
Oh dear God, why me? thought the man, shaking his head. It just wasn't fair. With the resigned sigh of a man walking to his own execution, he made his way effortlessly through the darkness. His eyes had been augmented through Professor Hojo's experimentation and he could make out much that the normal human eye could not. When he reached his
