"Avah.... Avah wake up. Wake up!!!"
The faint voice was slowly getting louder and louder each time. Waving in and out like the slow tremble of cymbals on a drum set. Soon a hand a was placed on my shoulder gently rocking me back and forth and the soothing mellow voice came again waking me out of my apparent deep sleep. The eyes that came into to vision shocked me so bad that I couldn't help but scream and push him away from me.
"NO GET AWAY FROM ME!!!!!"
He was so taken aback that he tried to place his hand on me again and I just shrinked back into a ball. He looked so shocked and sad.
"DON'T TOUCH ME!!!!!"
I was curled up in on my self as if to protect myself, all of a sudden I hear feet slapping on the ground, the sound of someone running and a loud boisterous voice soon following. My ears perked up and my pounding heart slowed down but I was to scared to move towards the oncoming body.
"What? What happened?! Rei what did you do?!"
Just when I was calming down again the name ran down my spine in a chilling way, I couldn't help but flinch. I just wanted to be in his arms, I wanted him to take me away from him. Just pick me up and take me home.
"I didn't do anything. I came out of the office and there she was sound asleep, I'd been trying to wake her up for the past five minutes and then the moment she opened her eyes she screamed her heart out. All I did was shake her shoulder a bit."
Asleep?! I was asleep. It was all a dream?! No. No. It was to real, I can feel the touch of his hands still roaming all over my body. The feel of his lips on mine, on my neck, his hands trailing down my sides, his hands on my chest. His cheek on my abdomen. No, it couldn't have been a dream.
"It.... It was a dream?!"
"Avah what happened?"
His voice was so soft and melodic. It was as if he was speaking to a little child. His emerald green eyes shining as if they were encrusted in my favorite bracelet just hitting the sun in the right spot. Crouching down before resting on the tips of his feet he slowly reached a hand out to me. I just stared at it, is it really okay?! Was it really a dream?! He just nodded his head. "It's okay Avah." I rotated my body towards him and practically jumped into his arm. Not being able to stop the flow of tears descending from my eyes. His soothing coos, and his hand rubbing up and down my back realized me but I just couldn't stop crying. I couldn't stop saying "It was only a dream." He kept reassuring me that that was all it was. I opened my eye only a bit to see him standing there sullen looking, probably wondering what happened. Reaching out his hand towards me and softly speaking my name I flinched. Even though it was a dream, what happened is engraved. I can accept his touch.
Taking back his hand he sighed a deep sigh. "I'll catch you later." he said before walking off and a split second later a heard a door close. Kia was still calming down and before I knew it I was fast asleep.
Soft. Smoke. Cigarettes. Voices. Worrisome voices. The sound of wind and cars whizzing by.
"I don't know what happened. I'd never seen her act like that, especially towards Rei, but I don't wanna pry it outta her. She just doesn't seem like herself anymore. Not like that spitfire that I fell in love with the moment I saw her."
Have I changed that much?! I didn't think I changed that much. What happened to me? He fell in love with me the moment he saw me? Does that mean when he saw me on the train?! I know he always said something about liking me, but I never took him seriously I mean who would?!
"She has seemed a bit off, but you and Rei never made it easy for her. And it's best to just let her tell you when she's ready to tell you. Just give her time she'll eventually get back to the spitfire Avah we all know and adore. And even if you were to tell her you love her, it'll be hard for her to believe you, I mean really Kia."
Yamato... That was Yamato right?! Why are we with him?! Where are we going?! Why is Kia talking to him about me?! I'm so confused... Have I really lost my spark?! Have I lost my fire? Soon the soft humming of the car drowned out their voices and I once again fell asleep. As hard as tired I couldn't stop the sleep come over my body.
"I don't think you should be here. I don't know when she'll wake up and I don't want her to freak out again."
"Please come on I just wanna see her."
Who's that and who is he talking to?! Are people arguing?! Waking up to people arguing. Getting frazzled by the voices resonating throughout the apartment. I opened my eyes to an unknown bedroom, foreign posters on the wall, and bed-sheets. Looking down at my body it was an oversized (clearly men's) button down shirt, and shorts. If I wasn't annoyed at the voices arguing, I'd be just as upset at whomever saw my nearly naked body.
Getting up off the bed and walking down the hall to the voices I stood in the doorway and looked at the two men arguing. Clearly not noticing me they continued their argument not even lowering their voices when I'm "supposedly" sleeping. How considerate of them. Jerks.
"When one is supposed to be sleeping aren't people who are talking amongst themselves supposed to keep their voices down, cause if so you guys fail."
Shocked at my sudden voice both of the guys turned around to look at me, Kia with a shocked but also frazzled look on his face. And Rei... Rei just looked like a sad lost puppy. Even though I wanna cower back into the room I have to stand put and realize that what happened was only a dream. He didn't do any of those things to me. Kia was trying to get Rei to leave by handing him his bag and jacket and push him towards the door. I slowly walked over to them and placed my hand on Kia and pulled him back a bit. And there I stood face to face with Rei. I wanted to slap him across his face, but he didn't do anything wrong.
I put my finger up to my lips to tell him to not say anything. I feel bad for him in a way cause he has no idea what he did wrong, when in all actuality he didn't do anything. He looks seriously like a sad and lost puppy.
"Was it really all just a dream?!"
"I don't know what to say other than sorry for whatever I did to you in that dream that you had. So please.."
"What you did or didn't do doesn't matter, it wasn't real and I don't wanna put you in that kinda predicament and make you feel anguish for it. All I ask of you is to just leave me be for a while and let me get over it at my own pace and don't fret. Worry lines don't look good on you."
I told to him, when I made the motion to touch the creases on his forehead I retracted my hand before I even realized it and caused him to recoil and step back. Don't do that. It's not you nor your fault. I held my arm to my chest and turned around my hair flowing behind me as I headed back down the hall.
A few moments later soft words were spoken then the sound of a door closed, and feet padding along the floor and the bedroom door slowly creaking open. Hugging a pillow I turned my body to face his standing in the door frame, his arms crossed and a worry some look prominent on his face. Seriously that look doesn't look good on either of them. They're too good looking for that look. Slowly his eyes started to sparkle and a smile spread across his lips.
"That's the Avah I know. I knew she was still in there somewhere."
"What are you talking about?! Sure I guess I haven't been myself lately, but I'm always like that. If I wasn't how could I slowly charm you?!"
I had a smug grin on my face. I sat up more on the bed with my back against the headboard. A huge grin shown brightly across Kias face and a happy laugh escaped his lips. He relaxed himself and placed his hands in his front pockets causing his pants to be pulled down a bit showing the band of his boxers.
"You charm me?! I thought I was the one charming you?!"
"Nope. Well you tried and failed, but I guess you always had a weakness cause I am after all a spitfire and that charmed you from the get-go, no?!"
I brought my legs up to my chest and placed my head atop my knees and looked at him with a big grin on my face. He just looked at me eyes wide. Busted. He knew he was caught and just nodded his head. "Is that a problem?" He asked, I shook my head at him. Making his way over to me, he placed an arm above me and looked down towards me smiling. "Then I guess you're stuck with me then, I'm assuming." I couldn't help but giggle. "I guess so, I mean you're my knight in shining armor... but it's actually a little tarnished. But I don't mind it."
I guess from the beginning laid my eyes on him there was always something about him that was .... Interesting.
