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.


I was Tika to Aeris


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.
