Old enough to be his mum, yes, but Elmyra was still an attractive woman and as he held her in his arms, Cloud felt something he hadn't felt in awhile, not since the loft in Nibelheim... Something changed in the way he held Elmyra and her sobs stopped as she tilted her head up to look at Cloud. Their eyes met and he brushed back a strand of hair that had fallen loose and traced the side of her face with his fingertips.
"My husband was like you, in the Shinra forces... It's been so long..." She knew it was going to happen and she closed her eyes as Cloud's lips met her own.
Just then there was a gasp and the pair's kiss ended just as quickly as it had begun. They looked up, but whomever had been there was gone. The moment was over; Cloud let go and stepped back, saying curtly. "I can't get involved."
The ex-SOLDIER turned and left the room and Elmyra was left holding herself, anguish returned, for Aeris, for Marlene, for herself. So alone...
