Aeris discovers a simple solution to what she believed insurmountable.
The winter that shadowed his skin marked the Whispers in covers of endless snow, but no one here suffered and none ever froze, least of all his tiny flower. She bloomed in the whirling, shielded from cold by her angel and Heaven’s Gate.
Aeris loved watching the shimmering dance of winter light conquering sands. Where one white ended to other’s begin, the Cetra did try to divine. Sitting and sipping hot chocolate or tea, as she stared out the seated window. If Sephiroth joined her, she’d climb on his lap, giggling to perpetual sigh. Humming to wiggle, she’d tilt back her head, lighting emerald with equal desire.
