I finaly got around to making this story. yeah. It takes place after kingdom hearts was saved (and I mean for the frist time). well the story is right under here so start reading ___________________________________________________________________ Chapter 1: the Breakdown Cloud found himself in a catsle. The castle looked like the one he and his best friend Zack used to play in when they were just kids .Looks like I'm back home he said to himself. He looked around to see if anyboudy else he knew was there too. Cloud found a library with the bookshelfs arragn in maze. Man..... this is going to be fun. After going thourgh the maze, he found a gril with long brown, braded hair and light pink dress seating down in a chair next to a table, readind a book. "Umm.... mam I'm looking for some people and I was woundering if you could help me out". The young woman tunred around and anwser "yes but they'er- Cloud"! She got out of her seat and run turds him. When she got to him, she huged him and said "Cloud I missed you so much". It was Aerith! She was crying all over him. "Aerith, I missed you too". Cloud huged her back, he seemed to be happy. She looked up to him and asked " Were is Zack, Cloud? Wasn't he there with you when this world was lost and why are you carrying his sowrd"? Cloud pushed her back, trund around and replyed "Yes but" Cloud sniffld "he died trying to protected me. I took his blade and swore on his dead body that I would portect anyone that I loved with his blade". He turnd his head to see Aerith; she was about to cry again. "If you want me I'll be outside", after he said that, he left Aerith to cry alone. I better leave the castle and never come back, I think Aerith is done seeing me. The water had stop and it looked as if the world was rebulding its self. Cloud see the other castle and (what was left of it any ways) his home town. Cloud was near the the town when heard footsteps behind him. He trund around, with his sword out, and all most hit the thing behind him. When he actually looked, he found out that the thing was Aerith. He pulled back his sword and said "I thought you him". " Hu? What did you mean 'him', Cloud"? Cloud sat down on the rugged ground and replyed "A guy named Sephiroth was born out of my dark self and my past. I've been trying to find him and destroy him. But every time I find him, he gets away". Aerith looked at him. I hope Cloud dosen't die. Cloud got back up and said " He's in the town so I don't want you there to watch". Before he went in the cave leading to the town, he went to Aerith and punched her hard in the stomce. He caught her before she hit the gound and laid he flat on the ground and said "I'm sorry.... but this is the only way". Then he left her there while he went to town.
