By DragoNeck, Inc.
It was a mistake, I swear…
A/N: Yeah, this was spawned out of a conversation with meh buddy Zack. <_<; Hence
why… this is going to be a FIC (stop laughing at me you bastard Dx) with just Rufus and Zack
I don't own FFVII, by the way. 83
On with the… humiliating show.
You'd never see it before now, two completely different ranks, opposites of the spectrum, hanging
out together. Well, you might, but in this instance, in this world, it was really very strange.
Why was Zack Fair, a First Class SOLDIER, best friends with the President of Shinra, Rufus Shinra?
Well, not in this universe.
It was lunchtime for the working class and everyone of course had their times where they would be
allowed to leave and go have their daily nutritional consumption... whatever that meant. And
ironically, these two had their lunch breaks at the exact same time.
So, often they went out to eat together. Don't question it, they just do. And yes, for all the
… fangirls… out there… It's because of that.
But no, they are not dates. So stop assuming and keep reading.
Rufus, being the hard worker that he was trying to pay off extreme planetary debt and dealing with
every possible dilemma as every good world leader does, he had absolutely zero sense of the time. He
had watches, clocks, and his computers of course, but his eyes just never seemed to trace along
those meaningless numbers… Just the ones he was required to pay attention to.
He had his own sort of... alarm clock anyway. Tap, tap, tap, went his pen, as he counted
down… On the final tap, the—
“RUFFLES!” screamed a never-gone-unrecognized dark haired SOLDIER, as the door flew off
its hinges via foot for possibly the two hundredth and sixty-seventh time; as Rufus recalled anyway.
Yes, he was obsessive with numbers. He stared at them all day, after all, save for those…
four digits. He had the utmost exasperation in his voice that just never wanted to die. Rufus
dreaded, and made a ruling, to never give him anything containing any kind of sugar or
sweetener, whether it be artificial or natural, or - for the love of all things living - caffeine,
for the sake of his own life.
“It's time for lunch!!” he exclaimed like a two-year-old that had just finished his
chores for the first time all on is own. Clapping included with the fancy dance-wiggle as well.
Knowing that he'd have no time to object, Rufus was already standing. The hyperactive SOLDIER
snatched the other's wrist and quite literally flew out of the room. “Vittles
What in the world had this man, who was older than him, could he have consumed this
morning to make him so… so… effervescent?
And everyone questioned why Rufus was in a constant state of paranoia whenever he was within a fifty
mile radius. He actually did set off the company alarm once just because he'd gotten word
from one of his Turks that Zack had gotten his hands on a small sugar packet found in the
He hadn't eaten it of course, but precaution was necessary with this man… just look at him
“W-where are we going?” Rufus asked finally, possibly the only thing he'd said all day,
not counting that phone conference this morning, which he abruptly, after arguing for three hours
with the same man who claimed to be several others, hanging up on him.
The SOLDIER felt his crank winding down, and came to a stop. “You know, I didn't think of
Rufus wiggled his arm, unable to get it out of the extreme vice-grip that the other had. He grunted
in discomfort. “Zack… My hand…”
He glanced. Oh, right. Rufus wasn't a rag doll. “Oops.” he muttered as he released it.
Rufus went about examining his would-have-been broken hand, cracking several joints and letting the
blood flow again. He chuckled nervously. “Sorry about that. Anyway, let's go over here!”
Rufus didn't much of a glance, as per usual. Zack's speedometer never went below seventy.
He was dragged into a mini-market. Oh god. Zack knew how much Rufus detested being in these…
commoner like places, all the filth, dust… so many things out of place and unorganized. Yes,
Rufus was just a little obsessive-compulsive. Just a little.
“Why are we here...” The man in white groaned as his wrist was suffocated by the grip of
the other once again. He looked all around, and made a mental note to fire whoever took care of this
“Cheap food, Ruffles! We can get loads of things here, and it's not so bad.” He
added the last bit after seeing the sour expression he was receiving. “Oh come on. You'll love
it.” He pulled the other to him, nuzzling him affectionately.
“Don't!” Rufus pulled away as if he were made of needles. He cleared his throat,
attempting and failing to force down a blush. “…Not in public…”
“Public?” The SOLDIER looked all around. Left, right, the ceiling, under his boot. He
even grabbed onto a bar on the ceiling and scoped the entire store.
“What are you doing?!” Rufus hissed out of embarrassment, his blush only
Zack released the bar and fell down, easily catching himself without a sway. “This place is
hardly public Ruffles. No one else is here except the clerks! C'mon...” He slinked his
arm into his, a big grin spread across his face.
Rufus sighed, probably red as a tomato now. “Zack…” he groaned in defeat.
Zack of course, did all the buying. He picked up some bag of chips, some packaged pre-made
sandwiches, two drinks, and some other snacks. He was having a ball, until Rufus had to
deliberately force him to stop. But the only way he could do that was by meeting
Zack's terms. The very common, “I'll stop IF…”
…He hated his job sometimes. Well, more of the people who he had to work with.
Of course Rufus would have to give up his dignity if he wanted to get Zack out of the damn store
already. He sighed heavily. “Okay, fine, what do you want so we can get out of
Zack instantly beamed… and perked his lips.
Rufus stared at him oddly. He was terrible at reading body language. “What?”
He did it again, only this time, added a `mwah.'
Rufus caught on that time. “Oh… no.”
Zack whined, stomped the ground in a pout. “Then we aren't leaving!”
“Zack—” Rufus began in objection.
“Just one?” Zack whined. “I promise, just one, quick...”
“No!” He could feel another heat rising in his cheeks.
“Oh, please, Ruffles? Then we can—”
“No!!” This was so frustrating… He was about ready to just leave him
Zack grinned maliciously, which Rufus did not like. He knew very well to never believe that
Zack didn't have a dark side. Oh yes, he was one of the ones that would wait for you to just
let your guard down, and… “I'll make you do it.”
Rufus was slowly inching away now. But they were in an aisle in the back of the store. “..No
you won't.” he said with a bit of uncertainty in his tone.
But he only grinned wider, setting his things down, raising his hands in intimidation. It was
working. “Yes, I will. You will kiss me!”
“No I—Zack!” Rufus struggled to get away as the SOLDIER grabbed him, yelping out
in frustration as he tried to get away from the attack upon him, turning his head this way and that
to avoid the other, all the while trying to get out of the glomp he was locked in.
“C'mon, just one I said! One is all!”
“Why not, huh?! C'mere~!”
“Mwahaha! Haha! Mwah mwah!”
The clerks up front were very scared by now, wondering just what was going on in the back... They
could barely see the struggling between their world leader and some SOLDIER that they'd seen several
They were much too afraid to go and look into the matter themselves, not wanting to be… taken
down by the mako-infused combatant or fired by their boss… which they believed had an
incredibly nasty temper. It seemed to be showing now in the struggle they were having.
Couldn't he just... call in the Turks or something? Seriously…
Finally, after several minutes, Zack managed lip contact. He released him afterwards, as promised,
both gasping and panting from the struggle. “You know, they'll seriously think we were more
than fighting back here.” He said playfully, grinning.
Rufus was leaning over, curling his lips and gasping for air. “…Shut up…
Zack…” he groaned. “Just… shut up…”
After all the items were purchased, Rufus trying to hide his face-so-red-that-he-could-crap-tomatoes
face, and the clerk's failing attempts at the, we-didn't-see-or-hear-anything blank expression, they
went outside, walked a few blocks, and went to a private sitting spot that was past some alleyways.
No one ever went here except them. So it seemed, anyway.
They'd finished lunch. But it was well passed the end of lunch time… But they didn't care,
really. Rufus was the President anyway, what could they do about it?
Slumped on one of the structures in that area, Zack limp on top of him, he panted, wiping his brow.
His jackets and shirts that he wore in numbers over his body were completely open, his pants loose
and practically falling off his body anyway. He'd been too lazy to pick up after himself.
Zack was completely topless, his pants in his same fashion. He was too tired to get up. Knowing
this, Rufus sighed, closing his eyes as he pushed his hair aside. “I really... hate
you… sometimes.” He grumbled in exhaustion, panting once more. He glanced down at his
glazed body, as well as Zack's. “Ugh. We have to shower now...”
Zack laughed softly, slowly raising himself off of Rufus, staring down at him. He grinned once more,
his energy having been spent. He caressed his cheek. “Don't worry about it.”
Rufus smiled faintly and stared up at him. “Why not?”
He giggled. “You know I always think of something.”
Rufus glanced over at their little trash pile that would need to be thrown away whenever he decided
to get up. Or Zack decided to get up, anyway. Despite completely hating the store, he had to admire
its good use of being able to buy a basket of things for the less. “Well, thank you for buying
lunch again… It was for a really good fuck, too...”
Zack smiled, but then caught that last part. “Fuck?”
Instantly realizing his mistake, Rufus shuttered. “Buck! I meant buck…”
“You said `fuck!'” Zack exclaimed, and began laughing as he jumped up.
“…For a really good fuck!”
“Buck, damn it!” Rufus argued, getting up quickly, instantly regretting it from the
pain. Zack laughed harder.
Zack began dancing around, laughing. “Fuck! Fuck, fuck, fuckity fuck fuck fuck... I am a
really good fuck, aren't I?!”
He was more than delighted with this. Rufus was just having a freaking ball. “No, Zack!
I mean... God... damn it...” He smacked his forehead, sighing hard.
“It was a mistake, I swear…”
End~! Hope you enjoyed. 8D
