"She hadn't expected to run into this kind of monster on one of her many treks up Mt. Nibel.
These kind of monsters had been growing more and more plentiful as of late around the Nibelhiem. Each one more dangerous and possibly deadlier then the one's before. It had even gotten to the point that her father, Mayor Lockhart, insisted that no one go up the mountain unless they had to. Once, if her father had caught her, he'd give her a very stern lecture about how she was risking her safety and insist that "his little girl" needed protection. Especially after a trek up the mountain she barely remembered. But recently...
Things had changed. Tifa Lockhart was making sure that she wouldn't need protecting, and this fight alone was making it very clear to her.
After a grueling battle in which she could feel her knuckles start to bruise and her skinned knees burn, she managed to leap up the monster's front delivering a kick Zangan had taught her called the "Somersault" that she was trying to perfect.
I still need to work on the landing She thought as she fell to her feet, a hand hitting the unforgiving ground as her other arm went out for balance. Tifa looked up in surprise as monster before he fell to the ground. Her breath caught as he realized she had done it.
She was well on her way to defending herself if need be.
She stood up with a smile and brushed her hands off before she turned down the path to where she could still see the few houses of her home. And in the center of town... stood the solitary water tower that she quitely called her favorite place
Tifa just hoped that Shinra would do something about this monsters soon. Things were escalating pretty quickly as of late and her hometown needed the help.
And secretly, Tifa hoped that they would send a blonde SOLDIER to clean up this particular mess..."
Not going to lie one of the first things about Tifa that drew me to her was her fighting style. That hand to hand combat and a few of those kicks are all kinds of awesome and in my martial arts class I learned how to do a few that were pretty similar.
I'm thinking about maybe doing original FFVII Tifa someday after I get back into Martial Arts, because of reasons. XDD
