Gongaga - Afraid to Go On
Cloud wakes in the Gongaga inn. Barret and Tifa are at his bedside.
You look like you was havin' a nightmare.
How are you feeling?
- I seem to be OK
- Not good
- Don't really know
I seem to be OK
That's good. Man, I didn't know what was gonna happen.
Oh... Better keep it to yourself.
Don't really know
I guess that's right. Well, don't worry too much about it.
You know, Cloud. Aeris is gone.
Everyone's out looking for Aeris.
Cloud sits up.
......City of the Ancients. Aeris is headed there.
By herself!? Why did she go by herself!?
Hey, we're goin' too.
Only the Ancients, only Aeris can save us from Meteor...
Then we must go. What'll we do if something happens to Aeris? If Sephiroth finds her, she's in trouble.
Sephiroth... already knows.
Hey! Why are you still sittin' around?
Let's go, Cloud.
He clutches his head.
I might lose it again.
If Sephiroth comes near me
Yeah, godammit! It's 'cuz of you that Sephiroth got the Black Materia in the first place. It's your damn fault!
I know you got problems... hell, we all do. But you don't even understand yourself.
But you gotta understand that there ain't no gettin' offa this train we're on, till we get to the end of the line.
Cloud, we came this far... Aren't you going to settle up with Sephiroth?
Cloud (shaking his head)
If this keeps up, I may go crazy!
Just a damn jackass, that's what you are...
Yo, jes' think about it... How many people in this world do ya think really understand themselves?
People get depressed in life because they don't know what's up.
But, they go on living. They don't run away... Isn't that how it is?
He walks out of the room.
Cloud... you'll come with us, right? I believe in you.
She walks out after Barret.
What... am I supposed to do?
Pull out of here?
Pull out? ...To where?
Tifa (from the next room)
Wait a minute, Tifa. Give him a little time.
He has to decide this on his own.
You believe in Cloud... right?
He leaves the inn, and Tifa follows reluctantly.
......I'm afraid to find out the truth...? But...... why?
He gets to his feet.
Those people were so worried that they stayed by your side until you woke up.
You sure do have good friends.
Cloud walks outside.
Hey, how are you?
I just wanna know, which is it gonna be?
You wanna find out about yourself? Or are you afraid to find out?
Either way, you stay around here and about all you can do is worry about it.
Even if you do go nuts again when you see Sephiroth... If it happens, it happens.
I'll go upside your spikey white head and bring you back to normal!
Cloud, it'll be all right. We're all with you.
If it happens, it happens. Don't worry 'bout it.
...You're... right. ......He's right, isn't he?
Come on, let's go and find Aeris...?
Together, they leave Gongaga to search for Aeris.
