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.
This place gets more tiring every day. Especially since Tseng died. He seemed to be the calm in the stormójust being around him was relaxing. But he's gone, and I have to deal with all this shit on my own now. There isn't a calm center to this storm anymore.
Now its just beating me to death. Everything is chaos. First it was AVALANCHE, then Sephiroth. Then the fiasco at Rocket Town. And then Tseng.

in my mind’s eye i can see her, limping dreadfully close to the edge of the current, her left hand gripping at her breasts through a loose t-shirt. kneeling by the wastelands, elbows in the gravel, crawling forward out into the water. angry like a dermis under wool, all teeth and salt and sand. sleepy, submissive, sublimated.
