Title: "The Gift"
Characters: Aeris, Sephiroth
Word Count: 100
Author's Note: Seeing as their individual personas seem to persist within the Lifestream, I have always wondered: "What if they 'bump into' each other?"
"You still miss it."
"Pathetic. Here you sit in your eternal existence and lament...what? A few years' worth of humanity? And what would you have done with those years? Been hailed as a heroine of some kind? I gave you immortality. Not only will you exist here forever, but you will remain in the hearts of your comrades until their last breath. Tragedy will always outlive triumph. And what of the end? The grief of knowing that you will not be around for the next great crisis?
As I see it, cutting you down was an act of mercy."
