Tifa awoke from her sleep when the sunlight shone into her face. She yawned and blinked twice before she was ready to open her eyes. Looking to the left, the brunette saw her sleeping lover, Police Inspector Cloud Strife. Tifa checked the watch and sighed; they had to get up, if she and Cloud didn't want to be late for work.

"Cloud", she whispered into her lover's ear, "Cloud, honey, wake up." Cloud groaned and opened his eyes.

"Huh?" he mumbled, causing Tifa to giggle.

"It's half past six, we have to get up." She then informed him. Cloud pulled the covers over his head, and his muffled voice came:

"I don't wanna." Tifa shook her head.

"Honey, I know you are tired, but we have to get into the office." She demanded, pulling the covers away from her boyfriend. Cloud groaned again and finally climbed out of the bed, allowing Tifa to get a good peek at his muscular body. The blonde inspector started to get dressed while Tifa wriggled herself out of the bed, "forgetting" that she used to sleep naked. Cloud stopped his dressing and stared, until Tifa grabbed her pillow and threw it after him.

"It's not very gentleman-like to stare at a lady!" she scolded. Cloud caught the pillow before it hit him and grinned at her before he replied:

"I never said that I'm a gentleman." Tifa poked her tongue out at him and started to dress herself.

"C'mon, Cloud, honey", she spoke while she buttoned her blouse close, "go and make coffee. For me?" Cloud just nodded, threw the pillow back on the bed and walked out of the bedroom to start breakfast. Tifa soon followed; she just remade the double bed, stuffed Clouds boxershort he always wore at night under his pillow and then walked out.

"Good Morning!" Cloud grinned when he entered the office.

"Good Morning!" Tifa entered one second after her boyfriend.

"Good Morning!" Scott, Logan and William, Tifas colleagues replied unison. (A/N: Wasn't that triple Good Morning annoying?)

"Anything new?" Cloud asked, standing in the doorway to his private office.

"Nope!" William replied.

"Just lotsa paperwork." Scott added. Cloud shrugged and entered his office while Tifa sat down at her desk and started to look for her coffee cup. Cloud had given it to her at her birthday last year, and now she used it at work. But today it seemed like the cup grew legs and ran away. After five minutes of useless searching, Tifa looked up, fire in her eyes.

"Okay, boys, where did you put it?" she asked, causing Will, Logan and Scott to put on their angel faces.

"What are you talking about?" Logan asked, and Tifa threw a roll of duct tape after him. All in good fun, of course.

"My coffee cup! The one with the teddy bears on it." The three guys gave her a weird look. "We didn't hide your cup. But we hid your mouse." Will admitted. Tifa frowned, then shrugged.

"Maybe I left it in the dishwasher yesterday. I'll go and look for it later." Before Tifa could waste any more thoughts on her missing cup, Clouds voice came:

"Tifa! Into my office!" Tifa grinned and hurried into the office of her boyfriend, while her three male colleagues let out wolf whistles. Tifa closed the door behind her and turned around. Before she had finished her move, Cloud had grabbed her and sealed her lips with a hard, passionate kiss. Tifa pushed her lover and boss over to his desk, turned around and sat on the edge of it without breaking the kiss. She felt that Cloud opened her belt and smiled.

Peeking into the telescope, the man watched how Cloud and Tifa enjoyed the actions of love in Clouds office. His eyes were burning with hate when he pulled back from the telescope. "Soon, my dear." The man spoke, his blue eyes glistening in the sunlight, "soon you will be mine." He turned around and left the room, slamming the door close behind him.
