Children of Fate

Work Text:

The orphanage is loud with laughter, the next time Cid visits his wife.

Irvine, first to greet him, breathlessly mentions that they’d watched a movie that afternoon. From the play-pretend games Cid can see, it has made quite the impression.

Seifer is the loudest of the group, and he fearlessly declares his desire to be a sorceress’ knight – brave and bold!

Cid watches him begin to argue with Squall, and he worries at the zealous hunger he sees ignited in Seifer’s eyes.

He meets Edea’s gaze from across the hall.

Was Hyne so cruel, to doom Seifer to that fate?
