Chapter 56

Tears welled up in her eyes. She was shaking.

“I’m here.. Aoi.. I’m here…”

“I’m scared…” She said again, her voice trembling.

Then her eyes opened wider. I saw her frantically looking around, her eyes wandering. Her tears fell down her cheeks. I reached to brush away her tears, but only more came out. I held her tighter against my body.

“I can’t see..Sei-chan.. I can’t see!” She sobbed, her tears could fill up a river. I held her tighter. My heart could break from the pain. She was crying. I was crying.

“I can’t see… I don’t want to die.. I don’t want to die.. I want to be with you…Sei-chan!!” She clutched my arms with as much strength as she could muster. No.

“You won’t die. Aoi, I promise. You won’t die.” I said with as much determination as I could give her. This was too cruel. I had only turned 16 a few days ago. There’s no way this was happening. This must be a dream, a nightmare. I would wake up soon. I knew it. I won’t believe this.

“Seii..” She breathed. She tried to look at me. I could see her desperately try to look at me. Her voice was frantic.

“I love you. I love you! Don’t leave me!”

“I won’t leave you. I love you too. I love you Aoi. Don’t forget that. Don’t you ever forget that!” I held on to her as tight as I could. As if I didn’t let her go, she couldn’t leave.

I saw her smile in reply. She tried to wipe away her tears, giving me her best smile. Her final smile.

“I am happy to have known you. To have loved you.” She said. Her tears welling up. “

I ran my fingers through her hair, shaking my head desperately. It was a silent no. No. Then she breathed out slowly.
