As usual, the Turks know where the bodies are buried - or in this case the head - as they walk away with Jenova's head in a box and the trophy for 40 points. SOLDIER tried to evade Jenova to no avail with 10 points and a few stray tentacles. Meanwhile, Avalanche is no where to be seen.
This week's prompt is #74 - Countdown
Do bystanders panic when they hear Reno counting backwards? Is Cid anxiously awaiting his countdown to the stars? Does Yuffie have a checklist for her top ten most wanted materia? Are the members of Avalanche trying to out-run the time left before detonation? Is Tseng counting down the days to his much needed vacation time? Are the Tsviets counting down the hours to their coup or is Nero watching the clock for his brother's life? Is Zack watching the clock on the microwave tick down the seconds for a hot dinner? And I bet the last thing you want to hear is Hojo telling you to count down from one hundred as you drift off into unconsciousness.
No matter what the characters are counting down to - write it in just 100 words.
