Fandom: Final Fantasy VII
Pairing: Vincent Valentine/Yuffie Kisaragi
Challenge: 86. Choices
He knew he had to choose. There were too many things that had been left unsaid due to his lack of the ability to make a choice. Did he stay or did he go? Would he stay with her and love her the way she deserved? Would he let her go and find someone he thought was better suited for her?
He looked at her and knew it was unfair to be with her if he was unsure, but he was afraid he couldn’t turn back, that it was too late. He had opened up to her in ways he swore he never would with anyone, drew her into his world, gave her words he never wanted to speak again.
Deep in his heart his being screamed his love for her, told him the idea of leaving her was an insane one. She was his everything, she made him whole, she took away the pain and the sorrow and replaced it with laughter and love. She warmed the cold nights, protected him from his darkness.
She was his angel and without her everything was dizzying, everything was meaningless. She was his life, she was his world, she was his saving grace.
But how could someone like him expect to make her happy? How could he, someone so dangerous, one who had done such terrible things be worthy of her?
He knew he had to choose but her head pressed against his chest was a distraction. He laid there running his hand through her hair and decided that the choice would wait until the morning. For now he was content just to lie there with her in his arms listening to the quiet sound of her breathing.
