*And here's an Aerith, finding herself in some place she doesn't know. Perhaps the surprising thing is she's wearing rather dark clothes.*

...this is not the Dark Area.

*Checks her bag.*

No D-comm or anything, so I've left the Digital World? The voice is still faint, so this isn't the lifestream.

*A sad look comes crosses her face.*

And not home either. So I've been kidnapped to yet another place I don't know.

...Gainsborough? But wasn't she supposed to be dead? Rude tilts his shades down, looking her over.

"..."
Aerith looks over at Rude. She visibly tenses. Even if they saved the world, it was still unclear where Shinra stood, though there had been rumors of Rufus turning things around that last week before she left home.

"Well...I guess it's nice I'm not the only one from my world anymore."
He nods, standing straighter. Very strange...there must be a very strong power here if it can bring someone so long dead back to life.

"There's already a few of us here, yes."
Aerith's expression brightened at that. A few? Perhaps then...her friends?

"Who?!" She asked excitedly. "Is Zack here? Or Cloud? Or Tifa?"
"Strife is here." he nods, still watching her carefully. A construct, perhaps? "Reno and Elena as well, but that's all that I am aware of."
A slight frown at that, looking a bit disappointed. "Well, at least there's Cloud. I can get to know him more! I barely had the chance before Yggdrasil took me from my world. And after we saved it too," a frown crossed her face. "It was very annoying."

Oops.

[Looks over at the other arrival.]

I did the same thing in the last world I was in. I was taken by the god there. So it's kind of like kidnapping if something pulled us here too, right?

Deleted comment

[Notices the worried look.]

I'm fine. And don't worry about the kidnapping. I think if Gods of a world do that, it's to help their world somehow.

....

[A sad look.]

I was...the only one there from my world. It was...quite lonely, to be without my precious friends.

[Then she puts on a smile.]

But I did make some new friends. They're very nice too.

[Cloud frowns when Aerith mentions kiddnapping]

I don't think it's kiddnaping, we all just randomly appeaed here.

[At least, he hopes it isn't kiddnaping]
Well, if we were kidnapped, it's because of whatever force run this place. At least if it follows the pattern of the Digital World.

[Pauses and stares at Cloud. Then she smiles happily.]

Cloud, you're here!

[And now she's hugging him.]
[Sorry, Aerith, he doesn't actually know you, yet. He tenses up a bit at the sudden hug, and starts blushing]

Umm...
[It's really too bad she doesn't know that much about alternates.]

Is there a problem?
[Well, she's about to get a crash course! Cloud breaks off the hug]

Well... um, I've never seen you before in my life... and you're acting like you know me.

[Look at him, Aerith. Doesn't he seem a little, well, young, too you?]
[Looks at him in confusion.]

Of course I know you, Cloud. You helped save us the world and you're Zack's best friend.

[And now she notices.]

...you look...younger.
Oh, you know Za-- [Wait, hold the phone] S-saved the world?! What are you talking about?

And, what do you mean "younger?"

Aerith?

...Is there any way I can help?
[Looks over in surprise. And then she starts to smile, since she believes he doesn't have to try and kidnap her anymore and gets rid of that little conflict of interests.]

Tseng, it's good to see you.

And no, not unless you happen to know if more of my friends are here besides Cloud.
[He's aware how awkward this is, so he makes an effort to keep a respectful distance. He wouldn't blame her if she wanted to turn her back on him.]

Thank you. It's good to see you too.

Last time I saw you you were living with Zack and Cloud. I believe you were looking for a sunlamp so you could grow flowers in the winter.
[She looks confused for a bit and then she giggles.]

Ah, so you HAVE been talking to Zack. I thought so. You know you don't have to avoid me, right? Even if I don't appreciate the whole kidnapping attempts, and I'm quite glad those get to stop now, it was your job at the time.

[Smiles fondly.]

But you never tried to hurt me, really, and you even kept those letters to Zack safe until he could finally get them. Even if it did take until after we stopped Meteor.
[The fact that Aerith is smiling at him is bringing Tseng dangerously close to actually having an emotion. Clearing his throat discretely, he tugs on his cufflinks and puts on his best it's-purely-business-ma'am face.]

I'm glad that's...what you believe. I give you my word you are not in any danger from me.

[He smiles in self-deprecation.]

It was you and AVALANCHE that stopped Meteor. Shinra wasn't much help at all.
Good. I'd hate to have to stop you from trying to kidnap me again. Especially when I still have to find Zack again. I'm hoping he's in this world.

[Shrugs at that.]

True, you guys weren't all that helpful.

[She smiles fondly.]

But I think it's really all thanks to Zack. He showed me how to save the world and bring everyone another tomorrow without having to give up my own.
