The Cursed Lands - inside an active reactor - Observation Room
The sound of the reactor, the soldiers patrolling the area...
That was all the things Cloud could hear and see from his seat. If he could still feel, he would find them very annoying. 'My name is Cloud. Striding Cloud. It's a pleasure meet you.'
Cloud begun to think back to the time when he was still human. He could still remember the very moment when he first met her. The moment when a girl was being assaulted by a gang of thugs.“ What is it, you wish to speak about, Lord Cloud?”
The voice from the screen next to Cloud's left side suddenly interrupted him. His memories about that moment were quickly scattered into little pieces. "I told you never to refer to me by that weakings name again, Queen"
Cloud spoke with a menacing dark voice without even facing the screen. His only wish was to forget that name, but it always finds a way back to him.
After a moment of silence, Cloud spoke again while staring out the Observation Room's glass window. "The reactor in the Forest of Memories is still inactive. The team I sent are currently M.I.A. I need you to investigate this matter with whatever means necessary."
Cloud ordered. He continues to stare outside the window, but then he slowly turns his head towards the screen next to him. "Are the rumours true, there are those who oppose us?"
Cloud questions Queen as he stares at him with his glowing, piercing red eyes
. Eyes which could be seen even though they're deep inside the dark helmet. It's as if he's trying to look directly into Queen's soul. A look which can send shivers down anyones spine.
