# 5 Tension



His black boot is several inches from my head, and if I could just roll over…Yeah right. Even if I could roll onto my side and grab that freak’s foot…. Sure, maybe I could trip him or twist it if I’m lucky, but I’m more likely to get my skull stomped in. Heroic, sure, but pretty fucking stupid. Better to save that shit for Cloud and his cronies.


Instead, I pretend to be down for the count and listen to Kadaj antagonize Rufus. Not that it’s any easier. But at the end of the day, a good Turk is smart not selfless. Personal sacrifice will do Rufus no favours. He’s handling Kadaj as well as anyone can deal with someone that batshit crazy. I only hope if Kadaj tries anything cute Rufus will stop playing cripple because I really don’t think me or Rude would be able to get to him in time.

Summary: Patience is a virtue.
Author's Notes: Hope you enjoy this as much as I liked writing it.


It was like grandpa always said, it’s all about patience.


Waiting for the wind to blow in the right direction, getting the right footing in the loose sand, the right amount of tension in the muscles of the back legs, and staying motionless for as long as it’ll take in the scarce foliage in his surroundings--He waited.


He waited until his prey came into view, alone, separated from the rest of its group unaware of the danger it was in.


He pounced onto his prey.


“Nanaki?!? What the hell?!?”


“I thought you were a cactuar?”


Cloud just glared back.

Welcome back!

If you're visiting us for the first time, we're glad to have you. Feel free to jump in and have a go at our fifth prompt. This week's prompt is special, having been suggested by a community member! ^_^

This week's prompt is... #5: Tension.

Tension. It creeps up, sometimes undetected until the full affects are being unleashed upon us, taking hold of our insides, making us nervous and apprehensive. Tension can build up slowly, until its force is great enough to break even the most serene and relaxed of characters. But the question remains: What kind of tension is it? Physical or mental? Is it simply just a tense conversation over the phone, an unfulfilled desire, or is it something much more hostile?

If you'd like to read over the definition of the word "tension", click here for Merriam-Webster's official write up.

Try not to let deadline tension get the better of you, and remember to keep it to 100 words.

Please follow the posting format in the official [community profile] ff7_drabbles profile, and show us what you can do!
