"Tifa!" Cloud yelled, running up the stairs to Tifa's room. "Where are you, honey?" Tifa came out of her room, only dressed into a big towel she had wrapped around her body. Her hair was soaking wet, and water ran down her long legs. Cloud stared at her in awe, his jaw hitting the floor. Tifa giggled and playfully slapped her boyfriend on his cute butt. "Stop staring, gentlemen don't do that." she teased him. "Never said I am a gentlemen." Cloud grinned, before asking what he wanted to. "Wanna go on a walk with me?" "Sure, why not. Just wait a second, I'll get dressed." "Okay." Cloud leaned casually against the wall and watched his beloved walking into her room. Five minutes later Tifa came out again, dressed in a simple white T-shirt and tight blue jeans. Cloud hugged her and smiled. "You look as great as always, Tifa." Tifa blushed to a deep shade of red. "Thanks, Cloud. You look handsome too." Cloud grinned and took her hand. "C'mon let's go." Tifa smiled at him broadly, and the couple left the house.
After a pretty long walk, the couple reached a little forest in the outskirts of Midgar. (A/N: Yes, I know there is no forest in the game, but this is MY fanfic, and I need a forest for it.) "You think there are wolfs in this forest?" Tifa asked Cloud. "Could be." Cloud answered. "Wanna go and look?" he asked grinning. "No, not really." Tifa answered, but then she saw the mischief glint in her lovers eyes and grinned. "Although, the forest sure is pretty lonely..." she thought out loud. "I see you get my thought." Cloud grinned, leading Tifa into the forest. He soon would regret this decision.
Cloud and Tifa laid in the high grass, kissing and caressing each other. "That was a very good idea you had." Tifa whispered to her lover. Cloud grinned and gently stroke her back. "Finally we have some time to be alone, without the danger that Cid or Yuffie butt in." he stated. Tifa laid her head on Clouds muscular chest and sighed. "That's good." Cloud laughed and patted her butt. "That's even better." he whispered before kissing her again. Then they heard the noise. It was a low growl, sounding dangerous and...hungry. "Cloud, did you hear that?" Tifa asked fearfully and quickly stood up, looking around. "Yeah, sounded like a dog or so." Cloud answered while getting to his feet. Tifa opened her mouth to say something else, and suddenly a huge grey wolf jumped out of the surrounding bushes and attacked Cloud.
Cloud fell to the ground with a shocked scream, the wolf on top of him. Tifa rushed to his aid, trying to kick the vicious animal. The wolfs head rushed down to bite Clouds throat, but the warrior managed to bring his arm up in time and the wolfs teeth sank deep into his forearm. "OUCH!" Cloud yelled, with blood streaming down his arm and on his white shirt. "You goddamn piece of dung!" Tifa kicked the wolf very hard, and it whimpered. But it didn't let go of Clouds arm. "Get off him, you beast!" Tifa screamed, she coiled her arms around the wolfs neck and started to choke him. Meanwhile Clouds eyes had rolled back into his head, so only white could be seen; the pain was too much for him. The wolf continued shaking his arm, and more blood ran on the already red coloured grass. Tifa increased the pressure on the wolfs throat, and finally it let go of it's victim and dashed off into the woods. "Cloud!" Tifa knelt down next to her lover and examined his hurt arm. The wolf had caused great damage; several muscles and sinews were torn, and white bone could be seen through all the blood. "Jesus Christ!" Tifa murmured while shaking Cloud, hoping to pull him back into reality. It was clear that he was in shock; his breathing was so fast that he was almost hyperventilating, and when Tifa checked his pulse he almost made it up to 200 beats per minute. "Cloud, please!" She shook him harder now, and then she just saw one way to tear him out of the world he had fled to from the pain. *SLAP!* The sound of the hit Tifa landed right into the face of her boyfriend echoed through the forest, and suddenly Clouds eyes rolled back in their natural position and he stared at her, wide-eyed. "Thank God." Tifa sighed in relief. "What...why..." Cloud stuttered. "You can ask later. First we must get you to a doctor." Tifa ordered. Cloud just nodded, and Tifa helped him getting to his feet. "Do you think you can walk?" she asked in her most gentle voice. Cloud nodded again, but suddenly his face turned all green and he vomited into the next bush. The blonde hero fell to his knees, gagging and choking. Tifa quickly knelt down next to him, gently stroking his back to comfort him. "You'll be okay, Cloud. Don't worry, everything is going to be fine."
