# 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.
