I had grown to like the realistic grit of the Western branch of development as opposed to the doll-like perfection of the East that was seemingly more obsessed with outlandish costumes and eerily symmetrical faces. And sure enough my first few moments in the game were far from promising. I was finding myself frustrated with the lack of actual gameplay, limited freedom, and overall pointlessness in much of the interaction presented.

They were out for at least a few hours. Get them over here. We need someone to watch these two that we can trust. The three of us are going to go after the Cie'th. Vanille shook her head.

It thumped its way down a steep embankment before it finally came to a rest against a large rock. The big man squirmed through and then darted over to Serah's side to help her out as well. In the meantime, Vanille wriggled out of her seat and through the driver's side window. There was no sign of the Cie'th yet, but it couldn't be far. And now they could see the Cie'th. It stood on the edge of the road above them.

It was twice the size of Snow and vaguely humanoid, its body made of black, rock-like material. Two white, metallic wings jutted out of its shoulders. And in its deformed, claw-like hands, it held a large, metal bow.
How many other Cie'th could there be that walked around with energy bows? There were several large boulders nearby, and at least there the Cie'th wouldn't be able to fire almost directly down on them.
There was almost a second between each of the first few arrows, but it wasn't long before the Cie'th picked up the pace. By the time they reached the boulders, the Cie'th was up to several arrows a second. The rock had begun to crack beneath the assault. We have to help Lightning and Fang. At this distance, she could put an arrow through the Cie'th's eye if she wanted to.

I won't let it. The big man zigzagged away from them beneath a storm of pink arrows. A few came within inches of hitting him, but he seemed to know exactly when to twist away. Serah bit back a smile. She was sure Lightning had something to do with that. The older Farron's idea of agility training was to shoot an assortment of painful, but non-lethal, blank ammunition at Snow on a regular basis. Serah waited until she was certain that the Cie'th was focused on Snow before she pushed out from behind her boulder and raised her bow.
Her arrow had a thundaga wrapped around it, and the Cie'th gave a high-pitched wail as the projectile dug deep into its right eye. Its body thrashed, and its wings flailed, before it lurched forward and rolled down the embankment toward them. It smashed through their overturned car and came to a stop a dozen yards away.
But somehow, it wasn't dead. No, it staggered to its feet and lifted its bow once more. What was Vanille waiting for?Final Fantasy XIII - (31) The Story of Fang and Vanille
Fire enveloped the Cie'th and blasted upward in a gigantic pillar of raw heat. Serah looked to the side, and there was Vanille.
The red head had stepped out from behind her boulder, and now her hands were raised, the air around her awash with the raw force of her magic. A bolt of lightning tore out of the cloudless sky and smashed into the Cie'th.
The Cie'th staggered beneath the assault, the ground around it scorched into glass. But it refused to die. Instead, it raised its bow and took aim at Vanille. Serah's first arrow caught the Cie'th in its one remaining eye. Her next three broke its bow to pieces and ruined its hands.
It roared, but Vanille it stopped in its track with another spell. The red head continued until finally the Cie'th vanished in a haze of magical energy. I'll call for someone to pick us up.

If that wasn't enough, anyone who still refused to leave could do some agility training. They'd run and she would shoot at them — with live ammunition. After that, it didn't take long for the room and the corridors around it to empty.
When they were gone, she turned her attention to the only other person in the room: Lightning grabbed a chair and settled down next to the still unconscious huntress. What a mess she'd made of things. It was bad enough that the Cie'th had managed to hit her, but she'd acted like a complete idiot, a besotted fool who wouldn't have been out of place in one of those cheesy romance novels that Serah liked so much.
If only the last few hours had been make believe. But it went beyond simple embarrassment. She had never been able to tell Fang how she felt. If Fang didn't feel the same, Lightning would lose more than the woman she loved — she'd lose her best friend too. She wanted to believe that she could handle Fang not caring for her the same way, but she knew she wouldn't be able to stand it if she lost Fang as a friend as well.
