Security Blanket

A small familiar blanket or other soft fabric item carried by a child for reassurance.

A/N: Long time no see~ Has it really been 4 years? Man, does time fly! I was feeling a bit inspired, so I thought I'd add something new for you all. I hope it's at least a bit enjoyable considered how long it's been. Let me know what you think!

GAWD, I am so bored! The word bored cannot even describe the amount of boredom I am suffering through right now. What's a GREAT ninja to do in this stuffy, old house in Kalm while Vinnie is off helping Reeve with WRO stuff…? I mean, I'm here in his house all alone – unsupervised – with all of his worldly possessions…

No… I really shouldn't. He said I shouldn't touch anything and just wait for him to come back.

Pffft, who am I kidding? When has that stopped the GREAT ninja Yuffie Kisaragi?

Nyuk, nyuk, nyuk! Prepare to have all your dark secrets revealed, Vinniepoo! Time to use my super awesome, secret ninja skills to find where he hides his deepest and darkest secrets. Hmm… Hmmmm… Hmmmmmmmmm. If I were a dark and broody mc brood pants who wore black and red and had luscious locks of raven hair, where would I hide my deepest and darkest secrets? Hmmm, no where really looks that promising… wait… now that I think about it, that door at the top of the stairs is always closed.

Might as well go check it out… Ugh, Vinnie really needs to renovate this place, these stairs sound like they're made out of dying cats.

It's locked… figures. Vinnie has always been the cautious, brooding, secretive, creepy type. Time to pick the lock! … almost… there… Aha! Victory is mine! Yuffie: 1 Lock :0!

Well, since I've gone this far, there's no turning back now! All of his dark secrets will be mine! …It's just his room. Well, that was anti-climactic. It's dull and stuffy just like the rest of the house. Maybe he has a diary hidden… under his bed! Nope… In the bedside table! Nope… In the closet!

Sweet mother of Leviathan! I have found the Vincent Valentine Cloak surplus store! Seriously, how many of these things does he have? I've always wondered what it's like to wear one of these… now's my chance! I just slip my head through here and voilà! I am Vincent Valentine… I am… the danger! Eat lead!

Nyuk, Nyuk, Nyuk! This is so much fun! If I had known how much fun it would be to strike poses in Vinnie's cloak I would have done it forever ago! It even smells like him and it's a lot warmer than you'd expect, considering how tattered it looks; surprisingly comforting, it's almost like he's hugging me… He has so many cloaks in his closet; he probably wouldn't notice if one went missing… right?

What was I doing in here again before I started trying on Vinnie's clothes? Oh, right! Deep dark secrets… time to snoop some more!

After scouring every inch of this room, I haven't found anything except that Vinnie's bed is exceptionally comfortable. You'd think it'd be as hard as rocks or like a coffin or something, but nope. It's like a cloud! A black cloud that smells like Vinnie… even though he's only been away for a couple of days, I miss him. This bed is so comfy, I can't get up… I'll just close my eyes for a bit and begin operation steal Vinnie's cloak later…

"What are you doing?" Oh my gawd, my dreams are really vivid, that sounded exactly like Vin. I just about had a heart attack.

"Uhhh…" Oh crap, that really is Vin and he's standing in the door way blocking my only escape route… My face must be as red as a tomato, oh gawd! "This isn't what it looks like! It's not like I'm cuddling your cloak because I was bored and I missed you or anything!"


"Errrr, I'm in big trouble, aren't I?"

"…" This is it; he's reaching out towards me. I have finally broken crossed the final line, goodbye sweet world! Goodbye materia, I'll miss you! This is how the great ninja Yuffie finally dies! Being hugged by Vincent Valentine! Wait, what? I'm being hugged! EHHHH?

"I do not appreciate you breaking into my room… but you can keep the cloak."

I'm so embarrassed the only thing I can do is burry my face in his chest and nod.

Looks like I have a new security blanket. Nyuk, Nyuk, Nyuk. My plan of getting a cape of my own was a perfect success. I am… THE DANGER!
