The Lonely NPCs

Before I met your eyes,

in the lobby of a chain restaurant

(it was 10:30 PM on a Tuesday, and Applebees was open and on the way back to my place.)

I had often been

the seduced NPC.

Sometimes,

I was Tika to Aeris

no,

Terra to Celes; (or was it the other way around?)

 

You made me your special, secret un-lockable character.

A reward for playing so hard and so long and never giving up.

And you were mine.

 

Finding each other was how we beat the game.
