Notes: Written for [livejournal.com profile] fb_fics prompt 13: confessions

Standing there, tears rolling down my face, I knew this isn’t exactly how I wanted to confess to him. In fact, it wasn’t how I pictured it at all. I wanted to be somewhere more romantic where he would tell me first and I would embrace him and let him know I felt the same. Perhaps it was a childish thought. But as he rejects me and calls my love a lie, saying that my mother uttered such horrible words, I almost wish I hadn’t confessed. I wish all of us could go on living the way we were in the house with Shigure, but I know that cannot happen.

I lie in my hospital bed for days pondering over the whole thing, and as everyone come to visit me, I wonder if he is mad at me. I just want him to be happy. I don’t want him to feel sadness. I may mean nothing to him, but he means everything to me. Day in and day out of my stay here, I see all the familiar faces I’ve come to love, but never his. I suppose he truly is still mad at me.

The doctors come in and finish up the paperwork telling me I’m ready to go home. But the truth is, I’m not sure that I am. Physically I might be, but emotionally I'm not so sure. Having to face him is going to be hard. What will I say? Should I apologize?

I walk out to greet Arisa and Saki, in my new pink dress the bought for me. I feel content knowing the walk home with them would give me time to think. But then I dare to look to my left, and I see him coming toward me.

I know I should not run away, and know I need to face him, but I can’t, so I run. I run as fast as my legs can push me even though I know he’s faster, crying the whole way. Of course, he catches up to me and scolds me for running especially just coming out of the hospital. I know he’s right, but I just can’t find the right thing to say in response, so I scream. I scream because I’m confused. Why is he here?!

He tries to calm me down and eventually I stop and listen to what he has to say. He tells me that he was selfish, and that he wanted another chance. He gives me a kiss, and tells me it’s the second time. I gasp and wonder when in the world was the first. He doesn’t say, but I’ll ask him later.

I tell him I love him again, only this time I know he accepts. I ask to hug him, and though I know he will soon become a cat, I don’t care. If only for a second, I want to feel his warmth. I hug him close to me and he pulls me tighter to him. I was so happy in that moment I almost didn’t realize the position we were in….he hadn’t transformed! I cried again, only this time tears of joy. He pulls off his beads in happiness, and I fall even more in love with him.

He comes up to me and kisses my forehead with such sweetness I could melt. He then extends his hand and I grasp it, and our hands become one as we walk the whole way home. People smile at us, calling us cute, and I blush, but I know that now, I’ve never felt more complete than I ever have in my entire life.
