30 chances.

That's a lot.

Seeing him rise to the top, and seeing him sink. 30 times.

I don't know what it will cost us. I do know it will be high. It won't be easy.






...he gave me a chance.

I owe him that much.

I owe myself that much.

Cid's sat in his quarters, on the side of his bed, a harmonica in his hands which he rolled over and over between his fingers, not playing it, just touching it, seeing it with his fingers. He somehow looks both very young, and yet very worn, washed out by time and bad luck.

The door squeals inwards, and there's the quiet, heavy step of boots.
Cid: serioussmokin_highwind on March 12th, 2009 02:52 pm (UTC)
Cid doesn't look up - because it wouldn't help to do so at any rate - and because he knew who it was. He slips the harmonica into his pocket, and pulls out his cigarettes instead.

Vincent's low, smooth voice rumbles from across the room.

"Don't light up."
Cid: getin' pissedsmokin_highwind on March 12th, 2009 02:59 pm (UTC)
"Why not?" Cid asks, even as he puts a cigarette between his lips.
Vincent Valentinebeastunderneath on March 12th, 2009 03:04 pm (UTC)
"You're going to have to put it out as soon as we reach sickbay. Might as well savor it later."
Cid: serioussmokin_highwind on March 12th, 2009 03:06 pm (UTC)
"And why're we goin' te the sickbay?" Cid asks, keeping the cigarette, but not making any attempts at lighting it yet.
Vincent Valentinebeastunderneath on March 12th, 2009 03:08 pm (UTC)
"To see Wills," Vincent says simply, moving around the room.
Cid: getin' pissedsmokin_highwind on March 12th, 2009 03:11 pm (UTC)
Cid makes a sound that's almost like a growl. "Damnit Vincent, if ye want te motivate me, yer gonna have te at least talk te me, fucking hell."
Vincent Valentinebeastunderneath on March 12th, 2009 03:16 pm (UTC)
Vincent grunts. "Just clearing the runway." There's a momentary pause, and then the squeal of the door opening. "Wills says your bruised eye has had time enough to heal, and has an eyepatch prepared. Thought you might be excited about getting an eye back."
Cid: serioussmokin_highwind on March 12th, 2009 03:24 pm (UTC)
Cid does look up at that, his face still unreadable. Inside, he was torn between stirings of hope and depression. Having sight back would be nice... but what was the point, when he still couldn't fly, couldn't see as he once had.

Either way, he stands. "Alright. Ye got my interest," he says grudgingly.
Vincent Valentinebeastunderneath on March 12th, 2009 03:28 pm (UTC)
Vincent says nothing, but there's the sound of him walking outside, and then waiting.
Cid: serioussmokin_highwind on March 12th, 2009 03:34 pm (UTC)
Cid follows, going slowly, his fingers outstretched on one hand to catch himself on anything he might walk into. He then takes the lead, knowing his way to the sickbay, fingers against the corridor walls.
Vincent Valentinebeastunderneath on March 12th, 2009 03:38 pm (UTC)
Vincent follows at his side, a silent, warm presence to his right. When they reach the sickbay, Vincent subtly steers him to a seat.

"You all ready, Captain?" Comes Wills exuberant voice.
Cid: serioussmokin_highwind on March 12th, 2009 03:44 pm (UTC)
"Apparently, I don't got much of a choice," Cid says dryly, looking uncannily at where Vincent was.
