Aerith goes looking for Cloud.
On the morning that the townspeople first returned to Radiant Garden, Aerith thought that she had come home again. She remembers: it had looked as though it were snowing. Stardust drifted down from the skies and scattered across the cracked stonework. Aerith watched as these particles bloomed into people and whatever else they once were. Seeing the townsfolk blink hard against the sunlight made something warm swell in her chest.
The World had seemed radiant in more than just name.
Now, a year and a bit later, Aerith is not so sure. She has lived outside of this World for longer than she ever has lived in it. A crowded boulevard and all her wishing might not be enough to make Radiant Garden home again.
This is the good stuff. Atmosphere for days!
