Wherein our hero finds the city. Or it finds him.

[is sprawled out on one of the pews in the church, turning his head to one side and groaning before blinking his eyes open and slowly trying to sit up, one hand pressed to his head] I've really gotta stop entering buildings through the roof . . .

[blinks again and frowns, studying the church interior] Hang on a sec. This isn't Aeris' church . . . [carefully stands up and looks around, hands on his hips and starting to look warier by the second]

Where am I?

[She cups his face in her hands, trying to get him to look her in the eye.]

Zack. Hören Sie sich du! Thinking like that will only make the wounds worse. What happened is done, beating yourself up over it isn't going to make anything better. Cloud nearly killed himself by thinking that way, and I don't think your Aeris would want you saying that either.

Becoming a part of the Lifestream made it easier to help control the counter-attack against Meteor. At least it did for me. I was able to get the help of everyone to fight it. I would have never been able to control something like that from the outside. I'm not saying I'm glad I died, but with my death, I don't think Sephiroth expected what I would be able to do after that.

See? Some good came out of it. [Her thumbs stroke his cheeks, her eyes closed as she just listens to the sound of his breathing, and the muted sound of his heartbeat.]

Holy always comes to those who ask for its aid. You just have to ask nicely. [She smiles, trying to offer some humor.]

What would you boys do without us?

[Sighs dramatically and rolls her eyes, shaking her head.]

I knew it.

'Fraid so. [Hugs, she missed his kind of hugs.]

On Master Street, in the Caravaca house.

[Tries not to laugh, covers her mouth with her hand.]

Not a problem. Just try not to get lost, okay?

I know. [She grins, taking her basket from him.]

Thank you.

I think this place is bigger than even Midgar. I've been her for over a month and I'm still getting lost.

Oh! [She covers her mouth with her hand.] Midgar must be the Template in your world.

[Nodding, she looks up at him] Midar was, yes.

Ah, that's not exactly why people can't get out. There's some sort of barrier around the city that drops people back within its limits if they get too close to the edge. No one's sure why.

Take my hand, I want to show you a shortcut.

I think so. Okay, hold on-- [And she warps, setting them down lightly on the sidewalk in front of her new home.] --and we're here! You can get a proper map at city hall if you need one. Also, Nanaki's here, I don't think he's your Nanaki, but...

He's not from my world. In his world, something happened while he was in the lab with me. I mean, his Aerith. Somehow Hojo used the power of the Cetra to change Nanaki, he's not used to his new body yet, and he's a bit shy around people he doesn't know. He's also still getting used to human behaviour and manners, so if he's doing something a little strange, it's because he doesn't know any better. He gets a little embarrassed about it when he gets mixed up.
