Elena/Tseng- Greatest Fear

Title: Greatest Fear
Fandom: FFVII
Theme: Lost
Characters/Pairings: Elena/Tseng
Rating: PG

He asked me once, long ago, what I was most afraid of. It was an unusual question, I suppose, and not one I was prepared to answer.

He asked me again four years or so later, casually, mouth pressed close to my ear. “What are you most afraid of?”

I closed my eyes, pressing my face against the warmth of his neck, trying to imagine what could possibly be my worst fear. I thought of all the things I went through, what I had seen, tried to decide what, if anything, was a great fear to me.

I thought then of the time I almost lost him, how I had imagined his life draining out of him. I thought of when we found him, pale and chilled and how I had choked back tears and feared the worst. I always feared the worst then.

“What are you most afraid of, Elena?”

I blinked up at his inquisitive face and decided maybe honesty wasn’t the best policy. (After all, bringing up the past never did do any good.)

“You,” I told him quietly, resting my head against his shoulder. “You.”
