Aeris receives something she always desired, while Sephiroth battles his guilt.
Aeris/Aerith standing in a garden with Grecian pillars with white flowers at the top. She is wearing a lavender colored dress with silver lining and boots of the same, while standing askance on the edge of the pillared dais. There is a large pink rose and greenery to the bottom right of her. The words “Chapter 16 – In Bloom” are to her top right.
Aeris had glimpsed the roof of their house, but she’d never set foot above. By Sephiroth’s office were stairs leading up, and the little maid gingerly stepped. It had been a few weeks past their night conversation, and she’d heard noises from above. Scraping and scratching had trickled down, making Aeris jolt up in concern. Once she’d had Myrna over for tea, but her neighbor sipped through without startle. The maid pressed a knuckle to her pursed lips, holding the questions in.
The day following her “meeting” with Miers she’d texted her friend contrite.
