In Hollow Bastion they were talking about Cloud leaving and Aerith asked if he didn't want her to be there when he was gone? What was all this about? I'm really confused.

*shrugs* I just roll with it. They're cameos, the original versions cared for each other and I went with that.

We aren't really supposed to "understand" it fully. We as Sora and the audience are outsiders looking in on a rather complex relationship.

Cloud doesn't want Aerith to be there when he fights Sephiroth and eventually leaves because of it because he's already left her once before. He doesn't want to make her sad. She's not his light, but still somebody very important to Cloud and he would feel guilty for having her there and see him leave again because he'd know it'd hurt her.

It's a bit of a reflection on their complicated relationship in FFVII.

I always took it as a little nod to the fans that she shouldn't be there when Sephiroth comes for him because, you know. He likes to stab her and make Cloud sad.
