Nothing More- A prologue

"Run Cloud!" Zack cried.

His blonde companion only heard the rapid pounding of his heart as his lungs screamed for oxygen, and his legs ached for rest.

There was a sudden, blinding flash and an echoing boom.

Cloud stumbled forward.

His blood blossomed across his shirt, stemming from his heart.

The world faded away from his senses…

And he knew nothing more.

This is only a glimpse of what happens- if you want to know how it all began and the pairings, please review, and tell me what you think!
