I needn’t have worried. Laguna was the easiest man to get along with I’d ever met. Then Kiros and Ward turned up and hyne help me if Laguna isn’t fucking talk dark and devastatingly handsome, the man is an idiot. Squall translated for Ward and ended up playing cards with him off in a corner while Laguna and I talked.

It wasn’t until later that I found out that Laguna had been in that old movie, the sorceress’ knight. I was fucking the son of my childhood hero and I had enough fantasies to keep me company through a year of SeeD missions that took Squall from me.

I was a very happy man.

Then Laguna grinned at me and I felt arms slide around my shoulders and Squall kissed my cheek. “Hey, it’s nearly dinner and you haven’t even changed out of your travelling clothes.”

“Damn,” I checked my watch. I’d been talking for four hours already and I didn’t want to stop.

“I’m gonna go get changed, maybe get a shower. I’ll see you in a few – dad’ll tell you where my room is when you’re ready,” Squall leant around to kiss me before he pulled away slowly and headed for the door. As soon as he was out of sight, Laguna punched me lightly on the arm.

“You’re good for him.”

“I am?” I asked and he nodded. I might have even blushed. “I love him.”

“Apart from Rin – which was totally different anyway – he’s never bought anyone home to meet me,” Laguna shrugged. “I guess that means you’re important.”

“Something like that,” I grinned… and sighed. I couldn’t keep avoiding, not when I liked the guy so much. I really hadn’t been prepared to like Laguna as much as I did. “Laguna, I am… was the sorceress’ knight. In the last war.”

“Oh, I know,” he shrugged one armed and beamed at me. I know I was just staring open mouthed because he laughed and waved his hand like it didn’t matter. “Not many people carry a scar between their eyes no matter how well they hide it with make up. I’m not as blind as some people think.”

I didn’t believe him for one second but hell. The old guy was good. “Sure Squall didn’t tell you?”

He gave me a pout and I knew where Squall had gotten his puppy dog eyes from. Hyne help me. “I noticed it when you sat down to talk to me.”

“Most people would have had me shot on sight, you know, sir” I sighed. Me and my big mouth, way to go Seifer, put ideas into the president’s head that will undoubtedly end in your demise.

“That was a long time ago, Seifer. And please,” he gave me the biggest grin I’ve ever seen. It was like seeing a kid. “If you won’t call me Laguna, call me dad.”
