Rufus' InterludeEach day, the weariness sets in a little further. I can't remember the last time I wasn't exhausted beyond the ability to stand by the end of the day.
When Sephiroth murdered my father, I never dreamed that things were going to get so far out of hand. But they have. Palmer finding the old man's body skewered on that massive katana has been the only good thing that has happened since the general popped back up.
But I thank whatever gods there are that the fat old fool is dead. If he was still in charge around here, he probably would have blown up the entire planet with Scarlet's stupid toys.
