Summary: Her whole body was warm....
Her whole body was warm with fever, but she had insisted I bring her out to see the stars. She wouldn’t accept no for an answer. “They’re so bright and beautiful,” she whispered to me. “I love to watch them.”
How could I say no to her when she was asking me, practically begging me to take her out and see them? She looked so small and weak watching me, asking me to give her this. I had to say yes. I couldn’t hurt her by saying no. So many people always denied her what she wanted throughout her whole life.
She leaned against me, gazed up at the sky. She looked so young and innocent and I felt like a horrible monster for being so close to her. “Hey, Vinnie?”
“Do you wish you were still in that basement? In your coffin? Honestly now.”
Why did she have to ask for honesty?
“Sometimes,” I told her quietly.
I could feel part of her body tense, but she pretended it didn’t. such a strong girl. “Oh.”
“Do not take it that way, Yuffie.”
“As if to imply I do not enjoy being around you.”
“Do you enjoy being around me?”
I looked down at the top of her head, then sighed, pulling her closely. “Surprisingly, yes I do. Immensely.”
