         “Hey, you're all ready to play right?” Yuffie happily skipped back from the last turn, already more than ready to get yours started. “I hope you're ready, because I'm on fire.”

“Yes ma'am I sure am, and I've already picked out my item. I figured you were in a hurry, so I didn't wait.” The item you'd chosen was a complete mystery to you though. It was a long red cord with small, blue, beads located in seemingly random areas. “I know I've seen this item somewhere before, but I really have no idea where.”

Yuffie tilted her head and pushed out her lips, just as confused as you were. “I think that belongs to Seymour, I could be wrong though,”

“You're correct Yuffie. Perhaps I should have used a more recognizable item though. May I?” He held out his hand, exposing his abnormally pointed fingers. You tried not to look, but found yourself drawn to them. Realizing you were too busy staring at his hand to hear what he'd said, he cleared his throat in hopes of regaining your attention. “My necklace?”

“Oh, right, I'm so sorry.” Quickly handing over the item, you shook yourself free of your current thoughts and tried to focus. No longer focused on his fingers, your mind rushed to the next subject, his title. Seymour was an important person, you didn't know how important, or what he did, but just the fact that he was important was enough to put you on edge. “I'm wasting all our time staring at you, I'm sorry. That sounded weird, again, I'm sorry.”

Seymour lifted the necklace over his head and dropped it onto his slender shoulders. “Dear young lady, you really must calm down, there's simply no reason for you to be so formal. You may act and speak as you normally would, I promise I won't bite.”

“Right, I'm sorry. I guess I'm just not very good in situations like this. And since I've never been in one before, I really have no idea how I would usually act or speak.” A strange mixture of a smile and a grimace appeared on your face. “Actually, this might be normal for me. Sorry about that.”

With a simple flick of his wrist, Seymour dismissed your worries. “Truly, it's fine. Though I will ask you to stop apologizing to me so much. Nothing you've said or done comes near to warranting your level of guilt, I assure you.”

“Uh you guys, I'm sorry to interrupt and all.” Feeling the two of you might need a little reminder that you were indeed playing a game, Yuffie chimed into your conversation. “But are you two going to get in the closet anytime soon? You're just kind of, standing here, in the middle of the room, talking. You've already wasted a bunch of your time.”

“Actually, I don't think I will. As you stated, our time is limited in a closet. This would not be true if I simply went to the kitchen, or any other room for that matter, correct?” Yuffie nodded. “As I thought. Then it would be more beneficial, if I skipped going into the closet all together.” Seymour turned his attention towards you. “That is, unless you're particularly fond of the closet aspect.”

Though you thought being stuck in cramped quarters was supposed to be part of the fun, it really didn't matter at this point. Even if you did go in the closet, you'd probably only have a minute. “No, that's okay. We can ditch the whole closet idea.” With a warm smile, you offered him your hand. “As long as you promise to spend at least seven minutes with me.”

Seymour returned your smile as he laced his fingers with yours and brought your hand to his lips for a gentle, unexpected kiss. “If you'll allow it, I plan on spending much, much longer with you than that.” After giving you his word, Seymour walked out of the cramped game room with you and began making his way to the kitchen.

“Well that's a first.” Yuffie rubbed the back of her head and sighed. “I guess we should just keep the game going then huh?” Shrugging, she grabbed the hat and readied to start the next turn. “And don't anyone try to use what just happened as an excuse for more time, it won't work.”

No problem. Plus it fits Seymour's personality and situation he was in.

That's good to know. I haven't Played FF X in years, so I totally forgot how he acted. 0.0
