Chibi Me, Chibi You
Aeris and the Chibi Materia
*** *** *** ***

One day, our travelers, Cloud, Aeris, and Cid came across a summon materia called the Chibi Materia. They were quite curious about it, and picked it up, then equipped it on Aeris.

Trying out during a battle, Aeris summoned the Chibi, but mysteriously disappeared.

Cloud and Cid looked for her in the surrounding area, but they only found someone's abandoned baby. So the two went off to their place in Kalm to talk to the others of Aeris' disappearance.

Knock, knock.

Tifa opened the door. Her eyes widened. "Oh... I...uh... didn't know you two had a baby...congrats... I guess..."

Cloud blushed furiously, while Cid looked the other way. "We didn't!"

"Speaking, where's Aeris?" Tifa questioned.

"She...ah..."

"So she's you and Aeris' baby?"

"NO!"

"Cid and Aeris?"

"Ugh...No way! We found the kid in our battle field after Aeris disappeared."

"Oh. Well, come in."

Tifa called the others to the living room. Cid retold the story.

"Hmm..." Nanaki took a good look at the baby. "It looks like Aeris. Chibi Materia, right?"

"It must be Aeris then." Cloud said. Everyone else nodded. Aeris smiled. She pulled one of Cloud's spikes. "Yeow!"

Pulled harder. "Yaaack!!!"

Aeris finally gave up with trying to pull Cloud's hair out. So, she went for the ears.

"AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAOOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWW!!!"

"Whew," Cait Sith sighed. "I didn't know Cloud was capable of screaming like a girl!"

"Hey," Cloud retorted, "I know even you would scream if that chick pulled your cloth ears, Cat-Boy!"

"Hey, guys! She's asleep, okay?" Yuffie drawled, hanging upside down from the back of the couch. "Don't wake her."

"Yeah, we don't want to wake Aeris up, do we?" Cloud spat back. "I'm still finding it hard to breathe!"

Aeris had fallen asleep on Cloud's chest, with her hand covering his nose. She'd recently tried to pull off all protruding body parts.

A half hour had passed...

Everyone was asleep....

But someone woke up...

"WHAT THE HELL?! CLOUD~!! GET YOUR BIG FAT REAR END OFF OF MEEEEEE!!!"

And everyone else did too. Even Cloud. Especially Cloud.

"WHAT EXACTLY WERE YOU TRYING TO DO TO ME?!"

Aeris had reappeared as her normal self. But not quite normal, because...

"AAAgggggggggg..." ...She was strangling Cloud.

And before anyone could stop her, she used the Chibi Materia on Cloud.
