"You'll kill him for me, won't you?" Gold snake, butter-soft, twists around Tseng's indifference. Its tongue flickers into every possible crack, seeking to slide beneath and begin the slow, deadly prying-off of old armor. "Better the Turks than Sephiroth. He's my father's mistake, and I won't have him repeated."

Men are men, and not errors. Past events alone should prove Tseng right. But it matters little, for enemies are warriors and not lost souls to be pitied. "We're leaving tomorrow."

"Come back soon." And the fangs slip a little closer to Tseng's skin.
