((OOC: I just realised something xD the last topic ended with my post and lightning falling asleep and so did this one D: weird xD))
As she rested her head on Cloud’s shoulder and relaxed completely in his embrace she felt as though she was beginning to lose the war against the enemy that all faced at one point; sleep. The sound of the rain, the warmth of the fireplace and the feeling of complete relaxation she felt in Cloud’s arms were all teaming up with the lack of sleep she had suffered since the night that brought them together, unable to hold her eyes open and unable to even open them momentarily Lightning knew she was losing the fight. She could tell him that she was tired, that she couldn’t stay awake any longer. But she wouldn’t allow herself to do so, she wanted to keep talking to him, she wanted to stay there like that as long as she could but it seemed that her body had other ideas as his speech started to fade away. She felt her heart ache as Cloud’s tone sounded so sad and hurt, she wanted to say something to do something to make him feel better, to cheer him up. But she felt as though her body would no longer obey the orders of her mind, it was heavy and frankly it felt as though it was dead asleep. Doing all she could Lightning tightened her hug slightly to comfort him, it wasn’t much but when your dead tired even a little movement can be difficult.
Managing to fight the war lord that had claimed victory Lightning spoke, her words were slow and soft trailing off as she fell into slumber. “Truly ..I am… the lucky one” The grip she held on Cloud’s loosened but it not fall away completely, she would not allow that awake or not.
