I just wanted to try my hand at a few stories. Let me know what you think.

Also, I do not own any of the characters or places in this story. I wish I did though.


I really didn't want to do this shit. I mean... who wants to go down to the labs this late in the day. Everyone heard the stories about what was down there, but I think it is just the SOLDIERS trying to scare the rest of us in the program. Zack always told me to stay away from the labs if I could, but I, Cloud Strife, was ordered by my CO. I walked down through the halls with a stack of papers in my arms. I think everyone was off duty now, and as soon as I left the lab, I would be off too. I had just reached the door to the lab, at this point. Just looking at the door sent chills down my spine.

I sighed and walked in the creep zone. It was very weird. The main lights were off, and the only light in the lab was the glow from a few empty tanks by the walls. I walked in a little further. "Hello?" No one answered me, and I didn't see anyone in here. Where was everyone? I turned to leave when I saw someone walk toward me. "What do you want, boy?" The man walked over to me and I was able to see him better. The only thing about this man that was clean was his lab coat and his glasses. His clothes were dirty, and his greasy hair was pulled back in a ponytail.

"Well? Speak up, boy, I don't have all day." This man has issues. "I was sent by my CO to deliver these document, Sir." I nodded to the papers in my arms. "Hm." He looked at the papers and muttered something I couldn't hear. "Just put them on that work table over there, then you can go." The scientist gestured toward an empty looking, metal table. He turned his back on me and walked through a side door that I didn't notice on my way in the lab.

I ran a hand through my blond spikes as I walked over to the metal table. I dropped the heavy stack of papers on it causing the table to shake. The next thing I knew, I heard the sound of glass breaking. Oh shit! I bumped a rack of test tubes over, and one broke! I picked up a sharp piece of glass and winced. I saw a bead of blood swell on the surface, but I ignored it until I had picked up all the glass from the fluid in the table. The cut on my finger burned when some of the liquid seeped into the cut. The scientist was coming back as soon as I finished cleaning up my accident.

"I thought I told you to leave." He glared at me as I backed away from the table. "I was just on my way out, Sir," I told him as I fled the labs. I almost ran toward my room. I was outside my door when I felt a little dizzy. I lifted a hand to my head as the world became distorted. I staggered through the door and fell on the floor. There was a pain at the base of my spine and in my head. I clutched my head with one hand as I pulled myself on my bed.

The lights were hurting my eyes and the pain grew worse. I squeezed my eyes shut and pulled a blanket over my body to block out the light. As soon as I couldn't see, the pain seem to take over my world. I was able to take no more as the world faded. Soon a soothing veil of darkness took over my world and I knew no more.
