Song By Joe Brooks
World/Time: AU Zack is alive events of crisis core never happend everyone is living normal lives,(If Zacks there I suppose Semi-Normal)
POV:Cloud Strife

Zack was officially crazy. I mean I can't in front of Tifa I'd look like a complete idiot. "Zack I can't do this!" I said to him as he grabs the stool. Zack shakes his head."Cloud ya gotta relax we practiced over and over! You'll do great Tifa will swoon over you!" I blush slightly. Just the thought of Tifa swooning over me made my heart beat fast. "See! This needs to happen!"He exclaims excitedly. Ugh how was he even able to do this? Somehow Zack was able to convince Tifa to let this 'Talent Show' at Seventh Heaven part of his plan of course but I'm nervouse...

"Hey Zack your up after Reno!"Yuffie yells. Zack grins at me and looks at Yuffie."Watch him."Is all he says as he runs off to change real quick. I should have know Yuffie was in on this. Yuffie skips over to me and sits on my stool."Excited?"She asks. I shake my head. "Nervouse..." I look twords the curtin as Reno finishs up his act of sowiwing Rude in half. "FUCK RENO WHAT THE HELL DID YOU DO?" I herd Rude yell. The audince laughs as Reno darts down the stage and heads twords the door. Yuffie glares at me."Stay put!" She walks out of the curtin and kicks the boxed Rude off stage "Our next act is Zack Fair!"The lights go out and everything is dark. This is my chance to hurry and get out of here! But as soon as i step foreward i bumb into yuffie. All of a sudden we hear a fast pasted techno song and a lot of "whooooooooo!" As Zack does a flip onto the stage wearing glowsticks covered in neon paint. He starts dancing and lights were flashing.

*I know this pretty rave girl

always thinkin bout her

when she says hi to me

butterflys go right through me

and when i see her dancin

i wanna take a chance

and try to get a little closer

And maybe get to know her

The audience is going cheering as zack dances and flips on stage i gotta admit it looked pretty cool. I wish i could easy do stuff like that...how can he NOT be nervous?

Finally Zack finishs up his dance and the lights turn back on. Yuffie walks out "Zack Fair ladies and gents!"The crowd claps and whoops loudly until Zack is backstage. He wipes sweat off his brow. "Whew that was fun! You ready Cloud?" I gulp and nod. Zack pats me on the back and turns to Yuffie,"Yuffie is Tifa in her seat?" Yuffie nods. "Ok great and the spot lights?" Yuffie grins and gives a thumbs up. I raise my eyebrow."Zack...what else do you got planned?..."I ask nervously but Zack just grins innocently.

"And Now to our final act Cloud Strife!" Yuffie announced. It goes dark and a spotlight centers in on my stool in the middle of the stage. I hear murmurs coming from the audience. I take a deep breath and grip my guitar."Here goes everything..."I whisper. I slowly walk to the middle of the stage and sit on the stool. I look out towards the crowd and instantly turn pale. Tifa is sitting right infront. She smiles at me. I close my eyes and start playing...

"There are no words,

to paint a picture of you girl

Your eyes, those curves,

it's like you're from some other world

You walk my way, oh God is so frustrating

So why do I disappear

when you come near,

It makes me feel so small,

Why do I blow my lines, most every time,

Like I got no chance at all"

I open my eyes and look at her. A spotlight apears on Tifa,her smile fades.

"If I could be your superman

I'd fly you to the stars

and back again

cause everytime you touched my hand,

You feel my powers running through your veins.

But I can only write this song

And tell you that I'm not that strong

Cause I'm no superman,

I hope you like me as I am, oh yeah,

aladadadai"

She puts her hands over her mouth and watches me. I look directly into her eyes.

"It aint no lie,

I have to tell you how I feel,

Each time, I try

it gets a little more unreal,"

She smiles slightly

"You walk my way,

oh God is so frustrating

So why do I disappear

when you come near

It makes me feel so small,

If I could read your mind,

Girl would I find, any trace of me at all?"

Her cheeks flush. I smile

"If I could be your superman

I'd fly you to the stars

and back again

Cause everytime you touched

my hand, You feel my powers

running through our veins.

But I can only write this song

And tell you that I'm not that strong

Cause I'm no superman,

I hope you like Me as I am - ladadadi, woahhhh, oahhh, yeah, babadadadiii- ,woahhh," Zack and Yuffie whoop from somewhere in the audience. I don't pay attention. I keep my eyes locked with hers.

"Yea if I could be your superman

I'd fly you to the stars

And back again

Cause everytime you touched my hand,

You feel my powers running through our veins.

But I can only write this song

And tell you that I'm not that strong

Cause I'm no supermaaaan,"

I look at Tifa a little stunned that I'm able to go that high. The crowd is going wild.

"I hope you like me as I am alallladali..."

I take a deep breath and smile at Tifa the crowd erupts. Tifa climbs onto stage and hugs me. Zack grins and chants"Kiss!Kiss!Kiss!"Soon the crowd chants along. I smile and look at Tifa."Cloud...I always loved you.."She says quietly.I smile."I always loved you too Tifa...always have...always will."I kiss her passionately and everyone cheers. Zack and Yuffie sit back and enjoy their evil plan work out.

Maybe this wasnt such a bad idea after all.
