I don't want to get hurt anymore
"Kouki! We're not done talking yet!" I yelled out to him.
"I think we are. Don't bother to talk to me ever again. We're over," he said blandly as he walked away, each stride filled with anger.
I sank down to my knees. How could have this have happened? One moment I was having the best time of my life, and then the next I was arguing with the most important person in my life. What were we even fighting over? Why? Why did this have to happen? Tears were pouring with tears. I got up and started running. It didn't matter where I went. I just wanted to run away from the pain. This hurt. . . The sadness.
When did everything start to go wrong?
It's only been a few years since I started to help my dad at the gym. Because of that, I've started to have less and less time to spend with Hikari and Kouki. Soon, we got to the point where I never got the chance to talk to them. No. . . That's not right. I was afraid. Afraid of rejection. I piled myself with work to escape my worries. They became closer to each other while I just drifted away.
I got up and opened the door. Who stood on the other side completely shocked me. "H-Hikari?"
Her once so glistening ocean blue eyes were now red-eyed from crying so much. It pained me to see her like this. How many times has she cried like this? How many time have I not been there to help and support her? Am I the cause of all this pain because I left them?
". . . Jun? When. . . did I get here?" her words reflecting the hollowness of her heart. Tears start to fall down her beautiful face and I'm rendered speechless once again. My mind soon recovers and I pull Hikari into a tight hug. I don't know what to do. I'm afraid if I do one thing wrong, she'll break into a thousand pieces.
Jealousy is a monster
I stared at the unsightly scene before me. I wanted to go over there so badly and give that idiot Jun a good punch in the face. He cuts all contact with us one day and then here he is, holding my Hikari. Who does he think he is? He has no right to do that. He wasn't there to catch and help Hikari when she fell from that tree. He wasn't there to celebrate with us when it was Christmas, our birthdays, or even his own birthday! He wasn't there when we needed him the most.
"Get away from her." I bluntly said as I stepped from behind my hiding place.
"Why should I? It's not like she's an object that can be possessed that easily." He's pissing me off now.
"Where have you been these past few years? Obviously not with us."
"In case you haven't noticed, I've been working my butt off to make sure that you guys stay safe; to make sure all of Twinleaf Town stays safe. Oh wait, that's right. Of course you wouldn't have noticed when you're smiling like everything's perfect all the time. Team Plasma hasn't given up yet. I'm out there almost Every. Single. Day. Fighting for you guys." Oh the nerve of that guy. Acting like he's the good guy here.
"Well you didn't have to take up that responsibility. You-" I was cut off by a loud and deafening screech.
"You guys! Stop it!"
I greeted Hikari with a glare. I'm still mad at her for what happened earlier. She cringed in return.
What went wrong in our lives that lead us to our doom? Were we really the cause of our own misfortune? But it's too late now...
...because we're already broken hearted.
