As Cloud watch his best friends cheer along with the children he saw Zack and Aerith walk out of the church.
"See everything turned out ok." Aerith's voice rang in his mind. "You did well, cloud." Zack's voice rang in his mind.
"Cloud?" cloud felt someone tug his shirt, it was Marlean. "You alright, you seem distant." "I'm fine, now let's head home." Marlean smiled and nodded while she got out everything turned white and once again Cloud found himself in Valhalla.
"Congratulations Cloud." Cloud expected the pink haired women voice but heard one to familiar. Cloud turned around and saw Sephiroth stand where he saw a certain throne. Cloud reached for his sword, but realized it wasn't there.
"Don't worry my new guardian won't attack you." A voice rang out threw Valhalla. "My name's Etro, and thanks to you Lightning, my pervious guardian, is freed to her world, and I get two others to replace her, Sephiroth and Kadaj."
"What do you want from me?" Cloud crossed his arms.
"I just want to thank you Cloud and to apologize for my younger sister's actions towards Gaia, Jenovah was always quite rash. Anyways, thank you and good bye."
Cloud found himself back in 7th heaven in the guest room. 'What the hell, pull me into Valhalla for something stupid, I wonder how everybody reacted to me blacking out. Damn it I probably hit the floor scaring the kids.
A week passed and Cloud realized he wasn't making as much Gil as he was anymore. As he returned to the 7th heaven form a long day of delivering, he saw another package waiting for him on the top of the steps. 'Damn and I thought I was done for today.' Cloud thought to himself as he pulled closer to the pot he usually parks Fenrir. As he got off he checked the time on his phone, 7:30pm, Damn, just because I beat Sephiroth twice doesn't mean I don't need sleep to. The package was in a shape of a cube about three feet long.
UPDS: Long distance. Weight: 35.6lbs
Origin: Cocoon, Bodhum. To: Cloud Strife.
Destination: Gaia, Edge 7th Heaven. From: Serah Villiers.
The hell, Cocoon, where is Cocoon? And who the hell is Serah Villiers. Cloud picked up the package, and walked into the Bar where Tifa was washing the last of the dishes and Marlean and Denzel where doing home work.
"Welcome back Cloud, What do you have there." Tifa was drying a few cups while the kids finally noticed that he walked in. Both of the kids ran to Cloud hugging him then both saying in unison "Welcome home."
Cloud placed the box under one arm so he can use the free arm to hug the kids; he then turned to Tifa and answered her question. "It was delivery for me, from someone named Serah Villiers. It's from a place called Cocoon."
Tifa nearly dropped a glass when she heard Cocoon. "Cloud are you sure it's from Cocoon." Cloud just shrugged and said "That's what it said on the box." He set the box on a table, "Where is Cocoon anyways?"
Once again Tifa almost broke another cup, 'Is she ok?' cloud was thinking. "Cocoon is one of the planet's that share the same exact orbit as Gaia in our solar system, Cloud that's a big deal, we haven't made contact with that planet for 20 years, we were too busy trying to improve our technology and then everything went to hell."
'What the hell, why did I not know that, oh yeah maybe because I left to join the military at the age of 14.' Cloud thought. "Oh…" was the only thing Cloud said instead. Tifa stopped what she was doing and walked over to Cloud to see the box. "Well let's see what's inside."
With that said Cloud opened the box and realized that inside the car board exterior the inside was, well, alien looking, the inside was black and green from something and it was a bit cold to touch and when cloud removed a smaller box with metal casing, he opened the smaller box and it held a gift basket with a letter. Cloud opened the letter to reveal a rectangular device that automatically turned on to show a text message.
Hi there, I'm Serah Villiers, Lightning's younger sister, Etro told me (well told Lightning and Lightning told me.) That thanks to you our lives returned to normal. So I wanted to thank you, for returning me and Lightning to our home and also Noel to his time, so as gifts here is a touch screen, voice activated cell phone. (The thing your holding.) And inside the basket is some snacks and drinks, with 10,000 Gil, My husband and Noel and even Lightning and I, pitched in for this our way to say thanks. Oh and it also has a manual for your phone in the basket. You phone also has a number in it that says Serah, The reason I added my number is because well we (my family and friends) want to meet you, The angle who brought my sister back and saved me from a long dangerous quest, so call or text anytime so we can send Sazh to go pick you up.
Tifa was opening the gift basket while Cloud read the message. "So what did it say?" Tifa had found a box of Cocoonian chocolate and some Tea.
"Oh they just gave me a new phone and they just wanted to say thank you, for everything."
"Oh what did you do for them?" Tifa now found the 10,000 Gil.
"Apparently Sephiroth is an enemy of their planet to." Cloud didn't feel like explaining everything, he was tired and he knew Tifa would become a second Yuffie if he told her. And he doesn't need another hyperactive knuckle headed girl on the loose around him.
"Well enjoy the gifts and share some with the kids, I'll take some of the Gil to see if I can have my swords sharpened and polished, then I can see if I can add anything to Fenrir. Tifa just nodded bit too excited for the new things she got from a different planet. Cloud took half of the money and walked out of the house.
'Maybe I should call tomorrow to thank them and take up that ride, Tifa needs to stay to watch over the kids, the kids need to be at school, I'll see if Vincent can watch over them. Heck maybe I should give him my old phone.' With that said Cloud smirked and got on Fenrir. 'Vincent I just saved you some time, from walking into a store.'
