[Tagging Zax, but also open to anyone he could run into~!]  
It came from the Nexus, high on chocolate and breaking several laws of physics and biology just through its existence. And it had only one goal in mind as it ran squealing through the streets to where it sensed Zax was hanging out.


"Zaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaax~! Where are you! I have candy!" Chibi-Cloud squealed as he toddled and skidded towards the sense he had of Zax's location, heedless of things like common sense, other people, or the mortification he would undoubtedly feel when the Nexus, LOL wore off. There were neat things to inform his friend of!

*Selling her wares on a street corner as usual (no, not THAT kind of wares, get your minds out of the gutter RIGHT NOW!), Aerith is nearly bowled over by a Streaking Meteor of Cuteness.*

...oh my goodness.

*It should be noted here - again - that Aerith suffers a severe weakness for Cute Things. Which explains why she's with Zax.*

Hiii Aerith! **waves, fast enough to practically take flight** Have you seen Zax?
Aerithmidgar_bloom on June 6th, 2006 02:26 am (UTC)
*blinkblink* *is having trouble processing language, circuits overloaded by adorable, please stand by...*

*points in the direction she last saw Zax*

Thank you! See you laters! **hugs Aerith's leg, since that's all he can reach, and toddles in Zax's general direction.**

....*melts!* X3 *and is useless for anything but wibbling for the rest of the week*
Zax Gunnolf: say what now?gongaga_boy on June 6th, 2006 01:43 am (UTC)
Zax doesn't need the Jenova network to know something is very amiss - the loud squealing is more than enough, piercing through the hubbub of the crowd, and causing Zax's hand to stop in dread as he reaches for his pocket to pay for the bag of roast almonds he's purchasing.

The vendor doesn't seem to notice his hesitation; they're both looking in the direction of the squealing, wondering what in the name of the Promised Land is going on.

Hearts, stars, and puppy dogs were echoing wildly down the network from Cloud-- he was definitely in a good mood.. it spiked sharply when he caught sight of Aerith.
Zax Gunnolf: le sighgongaga_boy on June 6th, 2006 02:26 am (UTC)
Zax winces, remembering what Yazoo said about the network. Not that this is important tactical information or anything, but he's willing to bet this'll get the bitch curious, if nothing else.

"Here," he says, depositing the appropriate amount of gil into the befuddled vendor's hand, and goes following the very loud ping.
ex_pyrocumu on June 6th, 2006 02:42 am (UTC)
Hey, maybe if they were lucky the spook would die of sugar poisoning. As it was, Cloud had stopped to adjust a lump in his shirt and looked up to see if Zax was around, grinning brightly when he finally spotted the SOLDIER.

"Hi Zax!"
Zax Gunnolf: zuh? O_ogongaga_boy on June 6th, 2006 02:51 am (UTC)
Oh joy.

"Hi, Cloud. ... What did you eat, drink, or touch in the Nexus? ... And which Cloud are you?"

Zax has had a long week.

"I had pudding. I think it interacted funny," the chibi said seriously. "I'm older Cloud! I think I broke your Cloud's brain! But it should wear off in a couple days!"

Cloud very gently patted his shirt. "I got a fire lizard egg! I'm keeping it warm 'til it hatches!" The puppydogs and sparkly hearts came back-- Cloud adored dragons, so of course the prospect of having one for real was making the chibi hyper.
Zax Gunnolf: rueful smilegongaga_boy on June 6th, 2006 03:01 am (UTC)
"... I sort of wish I'd been there to see that." Zax chuckles, and then crouches down on a knee to be more on a level with the chibi Cloud.

He raises an eyebrow at the sudden return of the sparkles, but grins. "Hey, that's pretty cool. Good luck with that, huh?"
ex_pyrocumu on June 6th, 2006 03:03 am (UTC)
Cloud glomped onto Zax, giggling-- mission accomplished! "We'll come visit when the egg hatches and I'm tall again!"
Zax Gunnolf: sweatdropgongaga_boy on June 6th, 2006 03:20 am (UTC)
Oof! Zax gingerly pats Cloud on the head.

"Here's hoping the first one takes longer than the second one..."
ex_pyrocumu on June 6th, 2006 08:20 pm (UTC)
"Uh-huh!" Cloud paused a moment and produced a few chocolate kisses from his bag, which was ridiculously oversized on him now. "I have candy! Want some?"
Zax Gunnolf: Zax is very concerned about thisgongaga_boy on June 7th, 2006 03:10 am (UTC)
Zax is dubious. "You didn't get them from the Nexus, did you?"
ex_pyrocumu on June 7th, 2006 08:13 pm (UTC)
"I got them from this pretty lady from another planet. But it's okay, she's a superhero," Cloud said, grinning up at Zax.
Zax Gunnolf: soft smilegongaga_boy on June 7th, 2006 11:39 pm (UTC)
It's like a reassurance. Zax decides to live dangerously.

"Sure, I'd like a couple. Trade you for some of my almonds?" He holds up the little paper bag and grins. "They're cinnamon."
ex_pyrocumu on June 8th, 2006 12:04 am (UTC)
"Oooh! Yeah!" Cloud grinned and gave Zax a handful of the kisses, which in chibi terms came to three. "Cinnamons are good."
