Summary: He still couldn't say he liked them.
He realizes, standing next to the ninja who was suffering motion sickness on the airship, that before he met this group he had never been on an airship before. Not to say he actually liked them now that he had been on one. Still, it had been a new experience for him when he started to ride them.
The ninja pitched forward with a sudden movement of the airship. He grabbed her arm, steadying her, holding her close to his side until she righted herself again.
He had been traveling with the young ninja for some time now, fighting monsters when they came across them. It was a never ending thing: the perils just seemed to go on and on as far as the eye could see.
Over their travels he had come to care for the girl, wishing to protect her against the things in this world that they had no control over. He thought, perhaps, he could even call what he felt for her ‘love’.
He smoothed back her hair. “Are you well, Yuffie?”
“A little airsick.”
“Do you believe you can stand on your own?”
He released her, kissing her temple briefly enough that no one else saw. “If you feel as though you are going to fall, feel free to cling on to me.”
She managed a smile, albeit a week one. “Will do, Vinnie.”
