Pieces of the Jigsaw
Sakura Avalon was
walking down the cherry blossom lined road, like every other
afternoon, on her way home from Elementary School. Her older brother,
Tori, was staying behind at the High School for practice, and her
best friend Madison was picked up from school by her four body
guards. So, Kero was the only one with her, as he had snuck to school
in her backpack that morning.
"Oh Kero, I'm so bored," Sakura sighed, kicking a cherry blossom petal. Kero popped out of her bag and onto her shoulder.
"You're telling me! School is so boring, and there's no pudding!"
"Is food really all you care about?"
They began bickering, when a strange light began to flicker to the left. They paused to look at it, and Sakura began to panic as it grew larger.
"Kero, what is that? Is it a Clow Card?"
Kero frowned, and shook his head. "I have no idea."
That's when it engulfed them.
Aeris bent over her flowers, tending to them with a loving hand, as Cloud watched her, smiling. He delighted in watching her work, amazed how much she could love and care for even the smallest things. She truly was sweet.
He was staring off into space as he talked, and didn't notice that Aeris had come up to him, frowning into his face, inches away. Startled, Cloud jerked back a bit, and Aeris melodic laugh made him laugh back.
"What were you concentrating on so hard- were you thinking of another girl?" She pouted, an expression that looked silly on anyone but her. God, she was cute…
"Why," Cloud asked, pulling her into his arms, "would I think of anything other than you?"
Smiling, Aeris embraced Cloud back, content. That's when her stomach jerked, and she knew something was wrong.
"MORE!" She shouted, knife and fork ready, as she stared at the waiter, who hastily placed the plate down, snapping it back as if afraid she'd bite it off. This was her 5th serving, and she was nowhere near full. Lina Inverse had a never-ending stomach. Two of her companions, Amelia and Goury were also on their 5th serving, while Zelgadis sipped his tea.
Twenty minutes later, and finally fall, Lina leaned back in her chair, a cheeky grin on her face as she patted her belly.
"Oh man that was great; I haven't eaten like that in ages!" She exclaimed, stretching her arms behind her head. Goury stared at her, confused as always.
"But Lina, you ate that much only a few hours ago!" exclaimed Goury.
In a flash, Lina bonked him on the head and pulled Goury into a tight headlock. "So you're calling me fat now, HUH??"
"No, no I—gaack..." Goury gurgled as Lina tightened her grip and started ranting at him, scaring other patrons.
"Um, miss Lina? Mr. Goury looks like he's in pain…" Amelia squeaked. Zelgadis shook his head.
"There's no use, Amelia. Leave the lovebirds alone."
Lina's head spun to look at Zelgadis so fast it looked like she broke it. She glared at Zelgadis, looking like a monster.
"WHAT DID YOU JUST SAY?" She screeched at him. Zelgadis became terrified, and waved a white flag. Before she could attack him, Xellos came up behind them.
"My, just the people I was looking for," he smiled. Lina slumped back into her chair.
"What do you want this time, Xellos?" she sighed, twisted a strand of hair.
"I've heard of something that will interest you greatly, Lina Inverse; a passage to another world."
They all gasped, and Lina stood up, thumping her hand on the table.
"We're headed to another world!"
"Since when does she decide where we're going?" Amelia whispered to Goury,
AN: I'm using the names familiar to me. Most anime I watched is dubbed, so I'll be sticking to the dubbed names mostly. And, I played FF7 when it first came out, so Aerith remains Aeris to me ^_^ and I MAY have edited parts of plots, so that I can have certain characters.
