Reno, Rude, and Elena take a break in Wutai. Too bad things won’t stay quiet for long.
“Got it. And don’t worry we’ll leave your friend alone,” Cloud said.
“Yeah yeah, I’ve no intention of harming that kid,” Reno said.
Cloud and Reno shook hands, forging a temporary alliance at best.
“So which way did they run off to?” Cloud asked.
Reno laughed. “Ah that’d be too easy. I’ll give you a hint though. It’s the place that stands out the most.”
The two Turks ran off back towards town.
“We could just follow them,” Aerith pointed out. Cloud and Vincent, again, agreed with her.
After a long hike to the nearby mountain range where the statue Da Chao was carved, Reno could still just barely hear the ring of the gong striking five times.
“It took us three hours to get here?” Reno asked.
“Well if you hadn’t run the first two kilometers at full-speed and then dragged your feet for the last three…” said Cloud who was walking up behind them.
“Ah, so you figured out my riddle,” Reno grinned. “It was a pretty easy one though.”
“You can say that again…” Cloud thought.
“Well he’s somewhere up here, and somehow got here a hell of a lot faster than we did. Let’s scout out the area real quick-like, who knows what kind of horrible things he might be doing,” Reno said.
The five walked up the mountain path at the first landing could already see the sculpture Da Chao. At the face of the head figure in the sculpture, stood Corneo, and Elena and Yuffie were both tied to the rock face.
“That’s not good…” Reno said. “Okay, you three go ahead and distract him, Rude and I will give him a little wake-up call.”
“And why should we trust you?” Aerith asked, matter-of-factly.
Reno laughed and then scratched his head. “You gotta point, but please remember that our comrade is in a pickle too. Why are you trying to save that girl anyways. Didn’t she steal your materia?”
Cloud remained silent for a moment and then said. “Well basically if we don’t save her, we won’t find out where she stashed it away.”
“Oh, I thought you just wanted to beat the living snot out of her with your own hands,” Reno said.
