Love and Life Chapter 13, Ending 1
The Mega Happy Ending
What a Wonderful World
Cloud looked at Aeris. He loved her, but...
Im... Im sorry, Aeris. Ive really come to like you as a friend, but Tifa, well, we go back so far, and shes always been there... and I just love her. Plain and simple, he told her. Aeris looked back, feeling a little rejected, but knowing that it would work out for the best.
Alright, thats all you need to say. Im glad that I had this time with you. Ill cherish it, she bowed her head to him, turned around, and disappeared.
Aeris? What the heck?
Aeris came through the door, her eyes were watering a little.
Tifa, hes all yours, she said, then burst into tears. Tifa gave Aeris a big, long hug.
Thank you, Aeris. Youre a good friend. Id like to offer to you, is there any dimension that you particularly liked, and maybe wish to live in? Aeris looked at Tifa, and smiled.
There is one...
Cloud was trying to figure out what was going on, when who should appear behind him, but Tifa.
Tifa! Youre back! What happened to Aeris? I thought that you were planning on leaving her here? he asked, concerned. Tifa shook her head.
I only planned on leaving her if you chose her, but you chose me, Cloud. But dont worry about her, I let her go to another dimension, Tifa said with a smile, It has you in it, but I was never there, and she was, but was killed. Isnt that interesting? Cloud grinned and wrapped his arms around Tifa. So youre here for good? he asked.
Yup. Im full-bodied, and no longer translucent, and Im all yours. Now, kiss me, Cloud Strife!
Cloud and Tifa embraced into a long, passionate kiss. Love had triumphed, and Life was to be lived now. The couple traversed out of the forest and into the open world.
