Prompt: #71 - Nightmare (for [community profile] ffvii_100)

"I’m not a vampire," Vincent thought to himself. It wasn’t the first time he’d been called that. Strangers, like the two at the table behind him, often made assumptions about his appearance.

Vincent stood up from the bar and approached them. Their expressions were filled with surprise and guilt.

"You are mistaken," he said, then he turned back to reclaim his seat at the bar.

Suddenly, he saw something that made his mind and heart race with fear. In the mirror behind the bar, he cast no reflection. He covered his mouth with his hand to muffle his inevitable scream.

Prompt: Vincent (for [community profile] ff7_drabbles)

"Do you ever miss it, you know, working for Shinra?" Cloud asked, staring at his beer.

Vincent didn't reply immediately, surprised by the question. Instead, he looked directly across the room where Rude and Reno, off duty and still in uniform, were playing cards with two other patrons of the bar. Reno caught his gaze and smiled at him discreetly. It had been a genuine and respectful smile; one that had much more meaning to Vincent than he thought could easily be explained.

"Yes, sometimes," Vincent said. "But..."

"You can never go back," Cloud said, finishing Vincent's sentence. "I know."

Characters: Vincent, Lucrecia
Rating: PG
Word Count: 100
Prompt: Cold (for [community profile] ff7_drabbles)

Vincent stared at Lucrecia’s flickering computer screen, watching as the stock company picture of his father wavered and became distorted. He couldn't believe what he was seeing, despite the official Shinra seal of approval. His blood ran cold, as unanswered questions filled his heart with dread.

Lucrecia had worked with his father. Why hadn’t she told him?

Footsteps sounded behind him, as a startled Lucrecia gasped in surprise. Her eyes became distant, and her words were so jumbled, that he couldn't understand what she was trying to apologize for.

"I'm sorry," had only begun to lose its meaning.
