Mustadio sighed softly, "I...I'm sorry about Sephiroth. He didn't mean to do that, but people do move on. There's something going on, and we're far past chasing a woman because she kidnapped someone dear to our leader. I've got a lot of power with me right now, but I'm easily manipulated." He took off the pendent he had on and offered it to Ray, "You'd be better off with it. No matter what you do with it, I'll follow you. Just keep it away from JENOVA. I won't be able to. She liked weak people, and you're far from weak." He pressed his lips to hers gently.
"People will lie to you, people will try to cheat you, and they'll try to hurt you. I swear on my mother's grave, however, that I will remain true to you until the day that I die."
Ramza stood there for a moment...then burst into laughter, "Cecil, love, lemme tell you something. Alma and I are as close as two siblings can get, we love each other a lot. We're like twins. But she's in love with Izlude, and I'm in love with you. We don't love each other like that. I'll hold her, kiss her, tell her I love her, but those are all brotherly acts." He laughed again, and shook his head, "Oh, this is too funny." He sat next to Cecil and held her tightly.
"Don't cry, my love, my only. Don't worry, either. I don't love anyone but you, and I doubt I will. As long as you stay true to me, I'll stay true to you. Alma is my SISTER. Nothing more. Nothing less. I love her with all my heart, but not in the same manner that I love you. Understand?"
Raenee laughed, "I think Ramza just set Cecil straight about his situation with Alma. I think it has to do with the Teta incident....he doesn't wanna lose his sister like Delita lost his. Teta is alive, though..." Her eyes became curious, "Not that I haven't wondered about Alma and Ramza..."
