Summary: The dolt didn't understand.
He told me once, at Tifa’s Christmas party, that the world held no real magic, not the kind that could help keep people who cared for each other together. True magic was lost. People who cared for each other couldn’t stay together. Love wasn’t enough. And I couldn’t stay with him. Immortals can never stay with someone.
I told him I wished the world was an ocean, then I would swim all the way back to him, no matter how far either of us got from each other. We wouldn’t be apart as long as we believed, as long as we love.
But he had forgotten the power of love a long time ago. And he seemed to be deathly afraid of finding it again, so he hid himself from the world.
And pushed himself away from me.
Didn’t he understand what the glory of love was?
You don’t have to be near someone you care about to love them: the feeling was stronger than that, so even if we were apart, the dolt didn’t know: I would always love him.
