Update: Another artwork update from my lovely illustrator who now has an Etsy shop you should check out! I’m so happy the artwork for this chapter is completed, as I had to remove the one that was here prior, so I’m overjoyed to have a custom made replacement.

Sephiroth returns to hunting for monsters on the outskirts of the town, though he reflects, in thinking of Aeris, that their boundaries exceed his borders. Monsters “hunt” her, too, and she asks him for something the fallen can scarcely believe.
The sea was as hushed as it could be and the stars above only spoke silence. In language unmeant for mortal ears, and he had no wish to heed them. The sky and him could never be friends, his guilt and its dark bound together. Nor did he need the moon to hunt, but that crescent still carved him a horn. It shimmered pale hair and paler skin and gave the stars something to mourn.
