His brand-new suit hung loosely around his body, tailored for a growth spurt. Wide-eyed and silent, the not-yet-a-man, no-longer-a-boy stared at shelves lined with hair dye. Wider than the width of his arms, taller than he himself. There was fire red, auburn, burgundy, scarlet...
 
His messy, black hair clung to his face, partially covering the fresh tattoos that hid a single, thin scar on his cheekbone.
 
"Cut your hair." the commander had said. "Tomorrow starts your life as a Turk. There is no place for your past here."
 
He welcomed the chance to bury the ugly remains of his past.

Reno had often seen Rufus rummage through his wardrobe for suited clothes. Whenever he had guard duty during an arranged date, he wondered what the man would put on next. It was almost always something different. Always fantastic to see. And always black and white.
 
Sometimes he and his colleagues would even bet on the number of pieces that would be black or white.
 
So, when Rufus showed up on his doorstep, ready for the 'evening of good fun' Reno had promised him, he was stunned to see him in black trousers, a beige jacket... and a deep blue shirt.

"Heads up." Cissnei said over the speakers, "You got one more drone incoming. This one looks different."
 
Reeve and Barret, both looking worse for wear in their charred battle suits, looked up. There it was, right over head. The heavily armoured drone landed and the helmet opened to reveal Dyne's smug face.
 
"Good to be back."
 
"This ain't gonna be good." Barret commented.
 
Dyne flung his arms to the side and two long cables, white with electricity, came out of the suit.
 
"I've got something special for this guy." Barret stepped forward. "I'm gonna bust his bunker with the Ex-Wife."

The train stood in the station, the chimney puffing out clouds of smoke. Rufus glanced through the window, waiting for it to depart and take him to work.
 
Suddenly, he straightened up. There, walking about nervously, was the black cub he'd found yesterday. How did she get here?
 
Quickly, he got out of the train. "What are you doing here?"
 
The cub happily mewled and ran towards him.
 
Rufus smiled, touched. "You can't come. Go back home."
 
The cub sadly looked at him and whined.
 
Glancing at the train, he sighed. Then he opened his bag. "Okay, but stay quiet."

Reno jumped into the hovercraft before it sped off as if though Hell's demons were on its tail.
 
Which wasn't too far from the truth...
 
With fervence, he and Tseng shot at their pursuers with their self-mutilated faces and wild eyes from the back of the open hovercraft.
 
Their guns were out of bullets when they finally killed the last attacker on his flying motorcycle.
 
But the rickety, armoured spacecraft was still there and fired a grappling hook right through the metal plating near their engines.
 
"Man," Reno glared at Tseng, "those grenades sure would've come in handy right now."

"Wear this." The Empress tried to pin a golden, embroidered chrysanthemum to his collar, but he grabbed her wrist. She was planning something with those.
 
"Why are you doing this, mother?" His eyes begged for answers. She had holder herself up in her quarters for days, continuously embroidering hundreds of golden chrysanthemums.
 
Tired, she smiled at him and produced a folded handkerchief from her robes. "Here. These are mushrooms that the Emperor has been mixing with my medicine. He wants me to go mad."
 
Rufus looked up in horror. "No." He would end his father before he'd let that happen.

When Tseng opens his eyes, he sees pagodas reaching into the sky. Rows of people in green robes slowly walk down the street that extends beyond what he can see.
 
Confused, he reaches for his stomach, but there is no cut.
 
He taps a man on his shoulder. "Where am I?
 
Surprised, the man covers his nose in disgust. "What? Didn't you wash off your mortal stink when you got here?"
 
"Huh?"
 
"Oh dear, another one." He shook his head. "You're in fore-heaven. You're dead. Here you do good deeds and if you're lucky you'll be reborn as a human."

"Ladies and gentlemen," Scarlett's voice rang through the hall, "today I present to you... the new face of the military... the Scarlett Drone!"
 
Accompanied by bombastic music, a small army of differently equipped drones rose from the floor.
 
"But there will always be room for men on the battlefield." Scarlett smiled and held her hand up to the sky. "I am proud to present: the Variable Threat Response Battle Suit and its pilot Lieutenant Barrett Wallace!"
 
"What?" Pepper and Cissnei exchanged confused looks.
 
Barrett appeared in an over-equipped, thick, metal suit and proudly fired his arm gun into the air.

Anxious, Amanda took in her surroundings. 'Mangwon, 24-1' A simple, wooden sign hung from a thick, tall, stone wall that hid the house from view. Trees swayed in the silent darkness. The man she was with fumbled with the dozen keys on the ring until he finally managed to open the steel gate.
 
She swallowed and followed him through, careful to leave the gate open. Beyond was a big garden. A shovel stood among patches of recently turned up soil. Could her missing colleagues...?
 
"You coming?" he asked.
 
"Yes." she timidly answered, wishing she could soon give Veld her location.

"Where is she?" Veld called out to the man at the reception. Without waiting for an answer, he stormed up the stairs. The fighting and shouting was audible all the way down.
 
Upstairs, three half-dressed men were wrestling in the corridor. He glanced into the open motel room.
 
The sight made him cringe. Amanda stood with her back to him, slowly zipping up her dress. When she turned and spotted him, he saw the disappointment on her bruised face.
 
Veld turned back into the corridor and hit the shirtless man over the head. "You come with me." he dangerously growled.

"There he is! Welcome!" Scarlett stood up from the dining table inside the hangar. "Please, sit."
 
Weary, Ivan eyed the woman, but sat down.
 
"I'd like to do business." she continued, and waved at the food. "It appears you have a sweet tooth for Reeve Tuesti. I saw what you did to him on that track today. Wow."
 
She shook her head. "That's why I couldn't let you be shipped off. Waste of talent. But..." A pointed finger. "You shouldn't just try to kill the guy. Kill his legacy."
 
She smiled sweetly at him. 
 
"Let me help you with that."

Rufus' wheelchair laid on its side on a workbench inside a dingy workshop in a back alley, one wheel slowly spinning in the air. The mechanic had unscrewed the cover of the motor underneath the chair and was tinkering with the mechanics inside, getting black oily fingerprints all over the pristine chrome case and plastic wire covers.
 
"Come on." Reno drawled to the man. "You can make it go faster than thirty kilometres an hour right?"
 
The man smirked and shot him a amused, confident look.
 
Rufus sighed with a barely suppressed smile on his lips and rolled his eyes.

Cissnei found herself in an abandoned warehouse, on the edge of a three floor drop, tied to a chair. Three men stood around her, the one in the middle asking questions.
 
Suddenly her cellphone rang.
 
Unbelievable.
 
Who would call her now? Everyone who had this number knew she was on an important mission.
 
The men glanced at each other. One took her phone and put it to her ear.
 
"You need to head back now." Tseng's voice came over the speaker.
 
"This guy is giving me all the information we need!" she protested.
 
"Zack has been compromised."
 
"...On my way."

"Jarvis, you there?"
 
The iron suit that tightly encapsulated Reeve's body held him firmly in place, although the motors installed at each joint would allow him to move should he desire.
 
"I have indeed been uploaded, Sir." the AI's voice came through the speaker in his helmet. "Initial diagnostic sweep complete. Systems online and ready. Starting full diagnostic---"
 
"Do a weather check and listen in to ground control."
 
"Sir..." the AI protested.
 
"Jarvis..." Reeve sternly interrupted him, "sometimes you've got to run, before you can walk."
 
The propulsion system kicked into gear and the suit sped through the corridor. "Yeaaah!"

"Day 1, test 37, configuration 2.0."
 
The man stood on a black and white grid with metal contraptions around his limbs.
 
"For lack of a better option..." Reeve turned away from the camera to look at the robotic cat standing behind him with its arms clamped around a fire extinguisher. 
 
"Cait is still on fire safety." He pointed a warning finger at the animatronic. "If you douse me again, and I'm not on fire, I'm donating you to a city college."
 
The robot let out a sad sound and let its head hang, its arms still tightly holding the fire extinguisher.

“What are you doing?! Get back inside!”

Rufus ignored his fellow villagers and continued to run up the hill, pushing a wooden cannon out in front of him. Dragons were attacking left and right, but he had his mind set on only one: Diamond Weapon, the ultimate price.

He set up the device and scanned the dark night sky. There! A hum and a build up of light as the elusive monster readied an attack. He fired the cannon. 

A roar sounded and - barely visible - the dragon fell down.

“I hit it? Yes, I hit it! Did anybody see that?!”

Endless Agony
 
When he woke, he was in darkness.
 
His limbs itched, but he couldn’t scratch for relief. His body ached, but when he tried to move, he met unyielding wood everywhere.
 
At the top of his lungs, he called for help and banged against the wood, but no one came. His mouth was dry from shouting. Maddening fear filled his veins. He would die of thirst in this dark, cramped space.
 
Every cell in his body screamed for relief until it nearly drove him insane.
 
After he had lost all sense of time, he came to fear Death would never come.

Guns blazing

Doors splintering dramatically into the camera, the hero that crashes through, guns blazing and taking out the bad guys before walking out without a scratch... that was the image he had in his head when he signed up for the Turks at the age of seventeen.

An idiotic idea he considers it now, and tightens his grip around the magrod as he cautiously glances inside the warehouse, crawling with fully armed crooks. He signals Elena on the other side and takes a grenade from his belt. His grin is wicked as he throws it in and closes the metal doors.

Bundle of Fluff

“Oh no...” Filled with dread, Reeve looked around and pushed himself through the crowd at the fair. Veld would have his head if anything happened to the little Shinra heir. ‘I can keep an eye on him.’ Lair.

Suddenly, he stopped, bewildered, and watched a big bundle of fluff waddle towards him.

The chocobo chick chirped and kicked its feet in the air as a little boy struggled to keep its tiny arms wrapped around the bird. His guard hound pup playfully jumped around them.

Through the feathers, Rufus looked up at him, hopefully. “I want to keep it.”

Huā pén (Flower pot)

A sudden violent movement shook the bed and jolted him awake. Drowsy, he forced open his eyes and found himself looking at Tseng’s sitting form in the gloom. He was staring at the far end of the room with a puzzled and disturbed look on his face.

“What is it?” Rufus asked with a voice hoarse from sleep.

Tseng looked at him. “I had the weirdest dream... That I’d been reincarnated as a flower pot. All bright pink and with flowers painted on it.” He shuddered. “This is your fault, Rufus, talking me into your bed and calling me pretty.”
