The Return of Zack Fair
A few months have passed now, since Cloud faced Sephiroth again and I must say that he changed, he really did. He finally seems to have settled with his past. Today he took Marlene and Denzel for a day out. He finally opens up to us.
Tifa lowered her pencil when she heard the phone. She put her diary away in a drawer and went away to answer the phone.
Good afternoon Miss Lockheart a familiar voice said. Tifa frowned slightly, she couldnt completely recognize the stranger.
Who am I speaking with?
Its Shinra, Rufus Shinra The president himself! Not one of the turks, like last time.
What do you want Tifas voice sounded a bit less friendly than she intended.
I need to speak to Cloud
Hes not here Tifa said quickly.
Can you ask him to come to the old Shinra building? As soon as possible, we have
recovered something that might be interesting for him
What do you want from him?! Tifa noticed she was starting to get nervous.
I can only tell that to Cloud, he must come here. As soon as possible.
So you can use him for your own business again? Hes been through enough already!
Just ask him to come, or at least let him call me, hell be interested. Thats for sure.
Well see Tifa said as she hung up. She didnt know what to do. What would happen if Cloud got dragged along with his past again? Everything was finally okay now. But what would happen if she wouldnt tell him and it was something important? Doubtfully she picked up the phone again.
Cloud here Tifa could hear Denzel and Marlene laugh at the background.
Its me Tifa said softly, knowing Cloud would recognize her voice.
Something wrong? You sound a bit worried
Tifa shook her head, but realized a few moments later Cloud couldnt see it.
Shinra? Now Cloud sounded worried too. What did he say?
He wanted to talk to you Tifa sighed.
Why? Cloud sounded slightly angry, Marlene and Denzel fell silent.
He didnt want to tell me
Ill go see him, and tell him I dont want to get involved in Shinra business anymore!
Cloud, be careful, dont let him try to get you into one of his projects
If theyre planning on something that could be dangerous for others I have to stop them
I changed Tifa, I can handle this
A beeping sound let Tifa know the connection was lost.
With a sigh Tifa put down the phone again, And I dont want you to go back to who you were she whispered softly.
