Diving - Sephiroth/Zack
Authors: icedark_elf and skeren
Characters: Zack Fair and Sephiroth
Fandom: Final Fantasy Seven
Theme Set: HW1
Theme: Worried 50
Warnings and Notes: Zack by Dark, Seph by Skeren, and Cloud... passed around as a party favor, of course!
Zack: *eyes the building where the people they were after were supposed to be hiding.* Oh, cliche, we love you so. *mutters it, looking at the place that looked ready to come down anytime and the rats nest it probably was. And he had a mix of the psych-rejects and greenies. Glancing around, he sighed, then gestured at the closest greenie to come closer.*
Greenie: ::realizes after a beat that's him and then moves forward, peering up through the helmet:: Sir?
Zack: *grins at the kid* Do me a favor? Get the rest of your unit together. *looks over the group, trying to decide just what his plan was going to be.*
Greenie: ::watches him a beat, waiting for him to give any other instructions::
Zack: *glances back at him* Just need you to get them all together in a group. You guys and the other group are getting different assignments. *because like hell he was going to leave the greenies with the psych-reject.*
Greenie: ::resists urge to sigh:: Sir, you want us to do anything else once we're together or just wait?
Zack: When you're together, I'll tell you what to do.
Greenie: ::nods once, then spins to go get people together.::
Zack: *rubs the back of his head. What were they teaching kids in boot camp now? They didn't spell things out to them that blatantly, did they? Bah, okay, plan time.*
Greenie: ::gathers people, though is slightly glad this wasn't a commander who would have taken the question badly. He needed to learn to keep his head down.::
Zack: *okay, he could take the psych people in and risk them shooting everything in sight and bringing the building down, or he could take the greenies. Well, that was a hard decision.* Okay, you guys, *waves to the new kids.* You're coming with me. The rest of you, set up a perimeter around the building and don't let anyone out. *gets nods of agreement from some of the group.*
Greenie: ::melds into the group, though elbows someone making a face at the instructions. What were they fussing for?::
Zack: *nods* All right. Let's go, guys. *starts for the doors, glancing around to see what the others were doing.*
Greenie: ::follows, making sure that his group, at least, was doing what they were supposed to::
Zack: *grins at them.* So, who knows what we're after?
Greens: ::round of nods, though some were slower to it than others::
Zack: Okay. You guys. *points out some* Go that way. Keep your radios on and report back if something happens. You guys, do the say, take that way. You two, come with me. We're going this way. Call if -anything- seems out of place.
Groups: ::split up::
Zack: *looks at the ones coming with him, and smiles* Come on. *heads further in*
Greenies: ::follow, looking around::
Zack: So, what are your names? *just trying to make conversation, keeping an ear out for any out of place sounds.*
Greenie A: Cloud Strife.
Greenie B: Harold Talen
Zack: *grins* Nice to meet you. Feel free to call me Zack.
Cloud: Uhm, is that appropriate sir?
Harold: ::grimaces:: Okay Zack sir.
Zack: Probably not, but as Seph will tell you, I'm horrible about the rules.
Cloud: Um. Seph sir? ::slightly horrified:: As in Sephi-roth- sir?
Zack: *pauses, looks at him, and then laughs.* You know, he had about the same tone of voice the first time I called him that.
Cloud: ::grimaces:: It's not funny sir!
Zack: It's true though. And yes I meant Seph as in Sephiroth. *carefully pokes his head around a corner and sees a room.* Hmm.
Cloud: He lets you call him that? ::mutter, then quiets down as they get properly moving.::
Zack: He couldn't figure out how to make me stop, honestly. *can hear some of the rejects they had come with outside* We must have looped around some. *hates rat nests*
Harold: So that mean's we're close sir?
Zack: Not sure. The problem with places like this is it's hard to tell what the insides look like. Especially....*trails off as something comes crashing in the window. Takes a moment to realize just what it is* Fuck. *grabs the greenies and bolts back the way they'd come.*
Cloud: ::yelps, then curls close to try to keep from getting injured or in the way in the headlong rush::
Harold: ::goes stiff, twisting to see what spooked him.::
Zack: Tell everyone take cover! *where the fuck had those idiots found an explosive of all things? Doesn't have anymore time to think about it as he hears it go off. Shoves the pair into the nearest niche he can find to protect them. Man, Seph was going to be -pissed- at him for getting them all blown up.*
Sephiroth: ::flips over another paper, frowning at the back of it and glancing to his door before looking to the next. Zack was certainly taking his time getting word back::
Cloud: *really didn't want to be here, but carefully knocks on the General's door. He had gotten the short straw.*
Sephiroth: ::looks up. Well, it certainly wasn't Zack:: Come.
Cloud: *deep breath, and lets himself in* Sir. *salutes him*
Sephiroth: ::arches an eyebrow.:: At ease. Why are you here?
Cloud: *shifts his position, but really doesn't relax at all.* I was sent to give you the report on the situation in Mideel, Sir.
Sephiroth: ::lifts his chin and frowns slightly, putting out his hand for it: And why were you sent exactly?
Cloud: Because SOLDIER Fair is in the med-wing, Sir. *wants to fidget, but just hands the report over.*
Sephiroth: ::frowns more, looking at the report, then back:: And why would he be in the medical wing cadet?
Cloud: Um...some of the others apparently decided to help by throwing an explosive into the building, Sir. None of us know where they got it.... And the building sort of...collapsed. *did not like the General frowning at him. It was disconcerting.*
Sephiroth: ::looks at him intently and puts the report down:: Explain
Cloud: *intent look. Can't run.* We were scouting the interior of the building, while the other unit was sent to watch the perimeter. SOLDIER Fair was with us, and we had gone into a room when something came in the window. He grabbed us and retreated down the hall until the device exploded. Later, the ones outside said they were attempting to help scare the target loose. *wanted to escape* SOLDIER Fair did what he could to keep us from being hurt too badly when parts of the building came down.
Sephiroth: ::evaluates him a moment, then gets to his feet:: Medical?
Cloud: *nods* Along with some of the others.
Sephiroth: ::nods once, then studies him intently for another moment:: Dismissed
Cloud: *doesn't run, but does move out of there very quickly. The General was scary when he was that focused on you.*
Sephiroth: ::waits for him to clear the doorway before heading for the medical wing::
Zack: *bored. Boredboredbored. And they wouldn't let him leaaaave.*
Sephiroth: ::pushes into the medical wing, glancing at various persons before coming to Zack's room, standing in the doorway a beat before closing it behind him:: Zack.
Zack: *uh, oh.* Hi, Seph. *gives him a bright smile*
Sephiroth: ::frowns at him, then moved to the bed to look him over:: You didn't bring me your report
Zack: Didn't Cloud get it to you? *shifts, winces slightly as the skin on his back didn't take that well. Stupid burns they wouldn't let him heal. Evil doctors. Evil!*
Sephiroth: That was the boy's name then was it? ::peers down at him:: Why did you allow yourself to be so injured?
Zack: *rolling his eyes, Zack huffed at him* Not like I really did it on purpose, you know? Besides, I take it better than the regulars can.
Sephiroth: ::Gives him an unimpressed look, then flicks his fingers dismissively:: Don't do it again
Zack: Don't plan on it.
Sephiroth: ::He nodded, and his severe expression relaxed slightly:; How long?
Zack: I have to wait for the burns to heal up on their own. So a few weeks, with my healing. *grimaces* Bored already, Seph.
Sephiroth: ::looks away, then nods once:: I'll return shortly ::goes to ambush a nurse::
Zack: *frowns at him leaving.* Hey....
Sephiroth: ::ducks out and goes to harass Staff. If would do the man no good to wait here while he healed... and it would be more difficult to keep an eye on him here as well, which would be unfortunate.::
Zack: *starts picking apart his blanket, bored senseless*
Sephiroth: ::comes back after a very intense negotiation with the doctor, Zack's things in a bag.:: Can you walk?
Zack: *blinks at him* Are you breaking me out? For that, yes! *moves to get up, and that didn't feel good at all, but escape!*
Sephiroth: ::watches him intently, then offers his arm with a sort of bored indifference.::
Zack: *hesitates for a moment, then using it to lean on, smiling faintly to himself.*
Sephiroth: ::doesn't look at him, instead starting for the door::
Zack: So, what's been going on here?
Sephiroth: Paperwork ::glances around, then makes for the door, checking to see that Zack was adequately covered::
Zack: *notices that, and chuckles* I stole actual clothing the moment their back was turned. At least something that wasn't those stupid gown things.
Sephiroth: ::makes a noncommittal noise and looks away again, slipping out into the hall to head for his apartments::
Zack: *smiles at his friend* Hey, Seph?
Sephiroth: ::inquisitive noise, not looking to him::
Zack: Thanks. I wasn't looking forward to having to escape on my own.
Sephiroth: I have no idea what you're talking about. That place is simply unsanitary, especially for burns.
Zack: Yeah, but do you know how much harder it would have been if I had to sneak out when they weren't looking and hiding in my room?
Sephiroth: Such a foolish action would have been bad for your recovery.
Zack: Still, thank you. *sideways grin at him.* So, what is the plan?
Sephiroth: I'm putting you in my rooms so I can monitor your recovery.
Zack: *snorts at him*
Sephiroth: You're not to leave until you're healed ::stern look, keying up the elevator and stepping in::
Zack: I hope you have things to entertain me with.
Sephiroth: I have fish.
Zack: I know. I helped start you on that path to darkness, remember?
Sephiroth: Most of them are quite bright actually
Zack: Yes, I know. *snorts at him.*
Sephiroth: ::nods slightly and leads him off the elevator and down the hall::
Zack: *can feel his back throb* I should be fine in a few days.
Sephiroth: Hmph. ::opens the door and takes him to the couch, which he knows is big enough:: Stay
Zack: Woof. *winces some* Ow. *shifts so he's not putting pressure on the painful spots.*
Sephiroth: ::leaves him there and locks his door, then fetches a blanket, pitcher of water, and a glass, setting two on the table and dropping the smooth cloth blanket over him:: Softer than the hospital horrors
Zack: *finds the fussing rather cute. Gods know when he first met Seph, this would never had happened. Ever.* Thank you.
Sephiroth: Hmph. ::turns to head for the door:: I have work to do, don't break anything.,
Zack: *snorts at him* I doubt I could move that much. *wonders if Seph grabbed the medicine they'd given Zack or not. He'd find out soon enough.* You could always bring your work here and let me harass you.
Sephiroth: ::He snorted slightly:: No ::sets Zack's bag of things on the far side of the table and then heads out the door after, locking it, then hitting the keycode as well.
Zack: *he'd just got locked in. Finds that amusing. Like he couldn't break out if he wanted. But he was tired, in pain, and didn't really feel like going anywhere. Gets and evil smile and digs out his phone. Cackles, and hits Seph's number*
Sephiroth: ::pauses, ten looks at his phone. Sighs and answers:: What?
Zack: Miss me while I was gone?
Sephiroth: ::hangs up::
Zack: *snorts, calls back*
Sephiroth: ::glances at number, answers, hangs up::
Zack: *frowns* I'm going to be pissed if all that hard work of mine went to waste. *tries it again.*
Sephiroth: ::answers properly this time:: Yes?
Zack: Thank you for hanging up on me.
Sephiroth: You're very welcome.
Zack: So, what did you do while I was gone besides paperwork?"
Zack: You're getting ready to hang up on me again, aren't you?
Sephiroth: Am I? ::wanders down the hall:: I'll see you when I come back to my rooms in a few hours Zack.
Zack: Unless I escape to my rooms where there are things to do.
Zack: No? *amused tone*
Sephiroth: No ::very firm::
Zack: All right, Seph. I won't shuffle my way to my rooms because I have nothing to do but harass you and look at fish.
Sephiroth: Good ::gets on the elevator::
Zack: *chuckles, stretching out on his stomach. Why did Seph have such a comfy couch?* So, more paperwork, or do you have meetings today?
Sephiroth: I have one in ::thinks of the time:: an hour
Zack: Ah. I guess I'll leave you alone when it gets closer.
Sephiroth: That would be best, else it will draw out longer
Zack: Don't want a save out of it? *no shoes, mostly comfy clothes, he was good to go.* I can call and you can claim emergency and go.
Zack: Is that a yes?
Sephiroth: ::quiets a moment as gets off the elevator:: .... Perhaps
Zack: *chuckles* I'll call you in an hour and a half and you can decide then. How's that sound?
Sephiroth: ::moment's pause:: acceptable
Zack: *smiles into the phone.* Glad I'm still proving useful.
Sephiroth: Hmph. I'm going now.
Zack: Love you too, Seph. *hangs up on him before he can reply to that, entertained by himself. Okay, obviously the pain meds had kicked in, as he was sort of giddy.*
Sephiroth: ::stares at the phone a moment before closing it. He'd have to consider that very closely in the future. ::
