The Story of Tifa Lockheart</i>
A glimpse into the Past, # 2.
By all accounts, she was a lucky girl. She had a father who was well off enough to give her anything she wanted, a mother who was loved by the whole town, almost the whole town who idolised her, with all this and probably more most people would think that made her spoilt, but she was an almost perfect girl-if she allowed a tiny bit of arrogance into her life every once in a while, she was usually a sweet, well mannered little girl.
Tifa Lockheart, daughter of Lena and Jack Lockheart was the talk of the town she lived in, a small place called Nibelheim. Everyone had always said that Tifas mother, Lena Dehernhee-a descendent of travellers who had settled in the town many years ago-was the most beautiful young woman to have lived in the town for a many sum of years. People talked about Tifa because she was the spitting image of her mother-if slightly different in the colour o

TWO YEARS LATER
The time was around ten, Zack was wandering around the Slums of Sector Five he had to find his friend. With the events of a year ago, well the pain of it all had changed him slightly. He was still the same man, but he had grown up somewhat since the whole affair around Genesis.
Thinking back, with Avalanche now in virtual ruin thanks to the Turks, Zack couldnt think it a more fitting punishment for what happened to Cloud.
He had found him just leaving the compound, his bag over his shoulder and a forlorn expression on his face, if the knowledge the Jerikson had been a member of Avalanche secretly planted in the program and had tricked Cloud into getting hi

Last Test/Lost Chance.
Cloud finally stopped his exercising; he had completed his final tests on examinations and had passed them. Now there was only one thing left and if he made it, hed be a SOLDIER.
Giddiness had entered him at first, but the growing feeling of fear had welled up in Cloud, hed soon either be out on the streets or a member of SOLDIER. Did he have what it took to get back home if he didnt make it?
No, he wouldnt go home. He couldnt, that letter from Tifa the letter from his mother, he wouldnt ever be able to face them.
But there was still a chance, a one in at least sixty chance that hed make it.
Giving a nervous laugh Cloud looked around the large auditorium where the remaining 112 SOLDIER candidates were being kept. The barracks had been filled with the next group of hopefuls. Cloud didnt envy them.
The first ten weeks of basic SOLDIER training had been brutal, hed seen a

The First Meeting.
Sephiroth stood on the outskirts of Midgar, staring out at the ocean. The war was coming to an end, the Wutai had all but surrendered and were now camped up inside their own city limits. He had delegated the tasks to his subordinates to return here. It wasnt exactly against orders, but he needed to be in Midgar right now, those boys needed supervision, he was sure they would make it to the SOLDIER program, any of the main high three ranks to be sure. Leaving them in the care of Shinra wasnt a good idea, he didnt think that they would end up in any necessary condition if they kept hold of them.
Hed heard him approach not too long ago but a pair of boots announced the arrival of a friend.
He turned to Angeal and smiled. Good to see you.
Angeal nodded and smiled himself. Back from the war again whats that, fourth time in a month?
I am interested. Sephiroth muttered. I
