Pizza Is For Happiness

There was a knock at the door.

Hmph. At least they hadn't simply walked right in, or busted the whole thing down, or come in through a window or something like that.

But knocking – it happened all the time. It made Tifa bored.

And she was in a whiney mood tonight. A very grumpy, grouchy, 'I'll-rip-your-face-off-and-stuff-it-down-your-throat-if-you-dare-look-at-me-the-wrong-way-and-don't-even-ask-what-else-I'll-do-if-you-make-me-angrier' mood.

In other words, a not-very-good mood at all.

So she got off her old brown couch where she'd been sitting cross-legged before the television and not paying attention, and stalked over to the door.

Flounced may have been more like it, but in a bad mood, Tifa would never admit that. She wouldn't in a good mood either, but…

"Pizza's here. Two large pizzas with the lot, minus olives and anchovies." A quiet voice spoke.

She blinked large dark eyes, startled, up at the delivery boy. The astonishingly-good-looking, black-clad, blond-haired and blue-eyed pizza boy that she knew quite well.

"…Cloud?"

He smiled briefly. "Yuffie told me-"

"It would be that little monkey creature-" That cursed, bubbly ninja who'd so thoughtfully called her that very afternoon and told her cheekily that

"-That you were feeling kinda down. So I thought I'd drop by. If you want me to go, though…" He left the question hanging, one fine blond eyebrow raised.

She felt her cheeks heating up, but not with anger. "No! It's fine – I mean – come in." She finished lamely, ducking her head.

And catching a whiff of pizza.

Who could be angry with their best friend-slash-crush and a heap of good food?

Tifa could. But she wouldn't be. This was too rare.

He smiled softly down at her dark head, a smile she didn't see, and brushed gently past her into the lounge room.

"I'm glad you're here," she whispered after him.

Wolves have damn good hearing. "I'm glad I am too," his voice floated back to her.
