You Have GOT to be KIDDING?!?!

By Scyler23

Action / Adventure

Chapter 1

Swerving quickly to the side the blond warrior dodged the heavy body that sailed at him from the top of the cliff. The monster hit the ground with a heavy thud as the black motorcycle skidded to a stop a couple feet away. Quickly the blond rider slid from the bike, pulling two large swords from secret compartments in the sides. The monster's faintly humanoid face twisted into a sadistic smile as it prowled around the blond swordsman. Narrowed blue eyes tracked the creature's movements, his grip shifting ever so slightly on the two swords.

"So, you are the Savior of the Planet, Cloud Strife. You're not what I pictured," the beast hissed as it paused long enough to change direction.

The blond, Cloud, stiffened slightly before speaking, "Oh? What were you picturing then?"

"Honestly?" the monster's eyes traced over his body for a few seconds before snapping back to his face. "I was hoping for something, well, more."

Cloud didn't even dignify that with a verbal response. He just shifted his weight before lunging at the monster. The thing just cackled at him as it jumped out of the way. Cloud gritted his teeth as he leaped after it. They carried on with their cat-and-mouse esque game for a good few hours before the monster grew bored. Just as suddenly as it appeared the monster seemed to disappear. The blond fumbled for a couple steps at the sudden disappearance and spun around, trying to locate the monster. A dark chuckle was the only warning the blond had before a large paw slammed into his side.

Flipping over in the air Cloud managed to dig the longer of the two swords into the ground as a way of keeping himself from flying too far away. Looking over in the direction the attack had come from the young man saw the grinning monster for about two seconds before it vanished again. This time there was a slight buzzing sound right before the monster appeared again, this time directly in front of him. Growling softly the blond jumped backwards, bringing his two blades up to block the monster's attack. Snarling, its humanoid face distorting grotesquely, the monster lunged again. Cloud quickly went from attacker to defender as the beast pounded relentlessly at his defenses. Eventually the monster whirled around and kicked the blond warrior in the chest.

Cloud grunted as the clawed hind paws connected solidly with his chest, sending him flying backwards. Flipping over in the air Cloud drove the point of First Tsurugi's main blade into the ground. The heavy blade created a deep trench before Cloud was able to arrest his backward momentum. Dropping to the ground he pulled the blade from the earth, leaning back slightly as he did. Throwing a glance over his shoulder the blond swordsman cursed as he realized he'd been pushed all the way back to Fenrir. Growling softly he glanced back just in time to see the monster gearing up for a materia attack. Blue eyes widened at the unfamiliar indigo color even as he called on his Time materia.

The two attacks slammed together with a concussive force. Cloud was thrown back against Fenrir, flipping over the large vehicle to land in a heap on the other side. He felt Tsurugi's main blade slide out of his hand as his head slammed back against Fenrir's side. Stars appeared before his eyes as a brilliant flash of light filled the area. When it faded nothing seemed to be very different than before. The only major difference was the sudden addition for the sound of a helicopter in the distance.
