Update: The previous artwork for this chapter has been removed as I believe it belongs to an artist who no longer wants her work reposted. I wasn’t able to find definitive proof that this was that specific artist, but it looks visually similar enough to her other work that I don’t want to take a chance. I’ll be going through all of the chapters and removing any art by that individual as well as deleting it from my image files, so you might see some missing images until I can replace them. I’ll also be making a post about why I’m so adamant about doing this. Thanks all!

Aeris recovers from her newest ordeal under the general’s unwavering care.
Aeris slept more often than not and dark dreams returned to torment.
“I have you.” She’d hear, low and assuring, as strong arms tightened around. Her hand was couched in one large and warm, long fingers curled over to shield.
“I’m still here…” She’d whisper as he kissed her brow and promised his rose it was true.
With so much sleep, Aeris was terrified to forget a day in her persistent count, but Sephiroth. knowing what it meant to her, always made sure he kept track.
“What day is it, master?” She’d reach for his hand, which he’d never deny his rose.
