Thicker Than Blood Title: Thicker Than Blood Pairing/Characters: Cloud, Cid Team: Avalanche Rating: G Word Count: 100
All Cloud knew of his father was that his mother saw him in Cloud's face. So when he met Cid Highwind, he succumbed to the habit he'd developed every time he met a light-haired man old enough to be his father: he scrutinized the other's features, hoping to find a shadow of himself.
Like always, Cloud was disappointed; yet he understood the stories of loss and struggle etched in Cid's skin. The two men shared no blood, but through their long journey, and the restoration of a motorcycle Cloud called Fenrir, Cid and Cloud became closer than father and son.
