Fandom: Final Fantasy VII
Pairing: Vincent Valentine/Yuffie Kisaragi
Challenge: 73. Light
There was always a lot of darkness in his life, never much time to find things better. There was too much he had to do, too much he had to make atonement for before he could look for anything special and bright. He didn’t want her to enter his life like she did. He didn’t deserve the light she brought into his life. She was the being he was never meant to know, the one he was never meant to touch with his bloodstained hands.
She brought light to his harsh world, taught him how to smile again. In some sick way he had always been waiting for her, had always known that one day he would find her, that she would bring him back into the world of day. Somehow there had always been this voice in the back of his head telling him she was right around the corner, that if he just held his breath and waited she would be there with her open arms and bright smiles. She would take his pain into herself and draw it away from him, would kiss away his fears and sorrow. She would bring him back to life when he had spent so much time feeling dead. Her, only her.
He would watch her when she slept, afraid to stay, afraid to move away. She was this beautiful creature that held his darkness at bay. She was the soft voice that told him he was still beautiful on the inside. She was the only bright thing in his life.
And he only wished he deserved her.
