everybody! This is just a story my
friend wanted me to write for her. It's
not my usual type of writing so it might sound a bit weird. It's also my first story that I've posted so
please tell me if you think I should continue posting this! Any ideas about couples in the story are
greatly appreciated! Oh, and my friend is a fan of Anne Rice books, so if you
have read any of her books, this may sound familiar. By the way, the romance involved with this story is not between
the two main people in this chapter. It
all comes a little later! And I do not
own Final Fantasy VII, although I wish I did. ^_^
A quiet man sat in the corner of a busy
bar in Junon. It was his usual routine
to come here every night and order the same thing.
"A mug of beer, please",
he told the waitress. She walked off
with his order as he continued to read his favourite book. He was close to finishing the book for the eighth
time now, and he still laughed and cried while he read his favourite parts.
He finished chapter eleven and he
put the book down. For some reason he
didn't feel like reading tonight. This
was a bit unusual because he practically lived his life reading and writing
He ran his hands through his short
blonde hair. "I need a real
life", he whispered to himself. He
chuckled at the sound of his remark.
Just then, the waitress brought him his beer. He politely said thank you and took a sip of it. He put the glass down and scanned the
bar. The bar was full, just like every
Friday night. But then someone caught
his eye. A young woman sat by herself
near the window. In her hands was a cup
of coffee. To him she looked unhappy.
"Hmm... maybe she needs a
little cheerin' up", he thought.
He gathered all his courage and stood up. He was pretty shy by nature but he always liked helping people in
need. He walked over and sat down in
the chair across from the woman.
"Umm... hello", he said
"... hello", she replied
in almost a whisper. She didn't even
look up. Instead her gaze stayed down
at the cup between her hands.
"... my name's Darius, what's
yours?" he asked.
The woman looked up at him. He was stunned. He had never seen such brilliant green eyes in his life. They almost glowed. Her long light brown hair moved with the
soft cool breeze that came from the open window. Like this, she didn't seem like a normal human being. She was just too... angelic.
She smiled and laughed softly to
herself. He was confused. Why would someone who looked so sad start
laughing all of a sudden?
"Huh? What's so funny?" he asked.
"I've never been called
angelic before", she said between her laughter.
The man was in awe. He was certain that he didn't say that out
"How did you do that?" he
She looked out the window. "If I told you, you wouldn't believe
me", she replied.
This time, he started
laughing. "Come on, you can trust
She looked at him with eyes that
seemed to stare right into his heart. A
sense of peace fell over him.
"Okay, but you're going to
overreact", she said.
"Try me", he said with a
"Okay, how should I put
this... what are the creatures in your favourite book called", she asked.
"Umm... vampires", he
replied calmly. She kept looking at him
patiently. Finally, he let the words
"Wha... no way!!" he
yelled as he jumped up.
He startled her. "Shhhh!!" She pulled him back down
in his chair.
"I knew you would
overreact", she said, "and you still don't believe me."
He looked at her again. Now that he thought about it, she did seem a
lot like the vampires in his book. She
had almost all the signs, yet he knew she tried to hide them.
The whole time he was thinking
about her, he noticed that she was staring into his eyes again. Her face went back to the sad state she was
in when he first saw her.
"I chose to tell you because
you seem like the type of person who wouldn't go insane if they heard something
like that", she said, "and you're the only person I've told."
He calmed down a little. "I have a boring life. I try to believe in many things, just to
make it a little more interesting."
She smiled again. "Never heard of that before."
There was a long period of silence
between them and finally he spoke.
"So... what is your name? I mean, I'd like to get to know you a
little... unless you're going to drink my blood or kill me or something",
he said with a smile.
She started laughing again. "Of course not! You seem very nice, besides, I don't get to
know the person and then kill them!"
They both laughed for a while. Then she remembered the question he asked
"Oh, my name is Aeris",
she told him.
"Wow, that's a pretty
name", he replied. He noticed the
cup of coffee in her hands.
"Umm... if you're a vampire,
then why do you drink coffee?"
"Oh, I just like the warmth of
it", she said, "and it's smell is also a little nice."
He looked at the cup again and he
noticed that it was still full. Another
moment of silence fell upon them. He
broke the silence again.
"So... umm... tell me your
"Hmm? What do you mean?" she asked.
He smiled again. "I believe that every person has their
own story to tell. I just think that
yours would be a little more interesting."
She looked into his brown
eyes. "I could tell you, but are
you willing to hear it all?" she asked.
"Of course", he replied,
"even if it takes all night!"
She laughed to herself. "It will take all night. I promise you that!"
this is chapter one! I know it doesn't
really make sense but it will get better!! Everyone's probably wondering about
Aeris being a vampire. But she does
tell her story! That's when it will get
interesting! I know it kinda
sucks. It was also a little
rushed. But the main story starts in
the next chapter. There are a lot more
FF7 characters in the main story so it will seem less boring (I hope!). But anyway, please review and tell me if I
should keep writing this!! I need some
suggestions! Any suggestions are
