1. Time Gone By

Years and years have gone by since Anya was released from the hospital after being in a coma for a year. She’s moved out of the Yamazaki home and taken Leslie wither her. The two have helped one another in more ways than they could have thought when they first started talking back at the hospital. The voices in their heads have been somewhat tamed thanks to one another. They can finally be trusted out of the sight of caretaker hands, and are enjoying living together in an apartment in the city.

“Leslie,” Anya laughs as the once quiet boy mumbles out his day.

The two of them can’t be trusted to do actually work around other people, so with the help of Mr. Yamazaki, they work for the company that he is head of. They do little things that interns might do.

“I-it was b-b-bad,” Leslie smiles at the giggling mess on the other end of the couch. “T-t-to many colors. It w-was b-better after I t-took o-over.”

“Well, I’m proud of you. Those guys have always been terrible at advertisements and you are a huge help. We’ve both come a long way since meeting in the hospital. I missed you all day, though,” Anya pouts.

“Anya?” Leslie may stumble over every word he says, but the name of the beautiful girl in front of him is one he never messes up.

“Yes?”

“I mi-missed y-you too,” Leslie smiles and fights for the redness to take over his pale face.

Since their meeting, it was almost fate that these two would grow close and fall for the other. Not that either will admit it. The keep pushing their feelings aside, and sometimes the voices in their heads will tell them that it is not a good idea.

“It’s nice that we can come home and be together then. Be best friends and all in this nice apartment. I like spending time with you. Oh, do you know what we are going to make for dinner? Work really tired me out, and I am quite hungry. Is take-out fine with you?”

Leslie just smiles at the girl as she sputters out everything on her mind. His heart sinks a bit at her best friends comment, but he still can’t help but feel so much love towards the girl that has helped him so much.

“Leslie?” Anya nudges the boy with her foot when he won’t answer.

“W-w-what?” Leslie snaps out of his thoughts.

“Well, I asked you about take-out first of all. Then I was wondering if it would be okay if Ember and Sorin came over tomorrow, since we haven’t seen them for a couple weeks. And then lastly, I asked about a day off.” Anya starts messing with the waist of her shorts. “Um, and if you’d like to go out somewhere. Just the two of us.”

“Like a d-d-date?”

“Oh! Um, yeah. A date.”

“I’d l-like t-t-that,” Leslie smiles.

Anya takes a deep breath, “Really?”

“Of c-course. I l-l-like you.”

“I like you too, Leslie. I’m glad we met,” Anya smiles real big. “Now answer my other questions, if you’d please.”

“T-take-out is f-f-fine. I’d l-l-like to h-have S-Sorin and E-Ember o-o-over soon. We c-c-could p-play s-s-some chess. Like o-old t-t-times.”

“Yeah, like old times. Chess is something that I could always count on in my coma as well as when I was younger. I think we should always continue to play chess together with Ember and Sorin.”

“P-please keep talking. I r-really l-l-like it.”

Anya’s face slightly heats up with a blush. “Oh, okay. Just tell me if I get annoying.”

 

“It’s nice to visit,” Sorin grins as he plops down on the couch in the living room.

“It is nice to have you over,” Anya giggles. “We’ve all been so busy, and I’m glad we could get together this afternoon.”

“We have been busy,” Ember sighs as she sits down on the recliner in the room.

“Anya,” Leslie makes slight grabby hands to Anya from his spot on the couch.

Anya laughs and goes to sit down next to Leslie. “So, what is new with you two?”

“I’m still in school,” Sorin grumbles. “Not much has happened with me because of that. However, when I graduate soon, dad is letting me get a job right away at his company.”

“That’s awesome. Ember, what about you?”

“Hm, well, I’m working under mom right now,” Ember answers. “She’s been teaching me a lot. The apprenticeship program has been perfect. I’m really enjoying it, and there are some very attractive nurses,” Ember chuckles.

Leslie tenses at the word nurse, thinking back to his time in the hospital. The horrible time that he had to spend in the hospital.

“That would be you,” Anya laughs along. “I’m glad you’re having a good time there.”

“What about you two?” Sorin asks.

“Yeah,” Ember smirks at Anya and Leslie. “What is up with you two? Admit that you are madly in love with each other yet.

Anya and Leslie’s face almost instantly turn red with embarrassment at the redhead’s comment.

“N-n-n-no,” Leslie manages to choke out.

Anya tries to swallow the lump in her throat, “We are just really good friends. We understand each other in a way that no one else can.”

“You can be really good friends and be in love,” Ember leans back in the recliner. “You two spend as much time together as possible and like to be around one another. It’s clear to everyone but you that you are in love. Please, think about it.”

Anya nibbles on her bottom lip as Leslie mess with his hands. Neither have the guts to say a word.

“Well then,” Sorin looks over the other three in the room. “How about no more talk about love and we play some chess?”

“Chess?” Anya looks down at Sorin with a confused look on her face.

“Yeah. We used to play it all the time years ago. Before everyone grew up and moved out of the house. Everyone still knows how to play, right?”

“You can’t forget how to play chess,” Ember snickers. “The real question is to Anya. Do you still have a chess board?”

“Of course. Leslie and I still play when we can find the time. It’s the chess board dad gave me when I got out of the hospital. I’ll go get it.”
