A Memory Forgotten
A Memory Forgotten
A bush of red hair pops out from behind the red curtain. The man looks left and right at the audience as he comes out. In his hands, he holds a piece of paper.
"KENSHIN!! We love you!!!"
The rabid onslaught of fangirls screaming begins its attack.
"Ororororo . .Sessha is undeserving of your praise . ." Kenshin modestly looks down at the ground as he scratches his head, a bit discomforted by all the words of love.
"Kenshin!!! Make your eyes change color!!"
Kenshin looks up, surprised by the comment. "Eto . . sessha thinks that is not a very good idea, de gozaru yo."
"Kenshin!! Go Battousai!!"
"Yeah! Go Battousai!!"
Kenshin's eyes become swirly as he realizes what the fangirls want of him. "Oro . . go Battousai? Is that even the correct way of saying it, de gozaru yo?"
"I want to have your baby, Kenshin!!"
Kenshin's eyes grow round and almost seem to pop out from its sockets. His legs felt weak all of a sudden from all the embarrassment.
Kenshin looks behind him with fear in his eyes. Yes, fear. There was only one person that could bring about such cold feet and leave his heart thumping against his chest in this manner.
"Kaoru – dono?"
From behind the red curtain, Kaoru comes stomping up to him. Her face was flushed crimson with anger and embarrassment. She also had heard what the fangirls were saying. The woman grabs the sleeve of Kenshin's magenta gi and pulls on it while she looks at the audience.
"Kenshin is my husband! He belongs to me!! Back off!!" Kaoru shouted as she held on to his clothes.
Kenshin looks to the side and looks at Kaoru's flushed face. A warm feeling of happiness began to overtake his senses, his cheeks betraying his thoughts. Then he sees her turn around, flames of electric rage dancing in the blues of her eyes.
Kaoru-dono seems to have extra energy today, de gozaru yo, he thought.
"And Kenshin . . what are you doing standing around here!! You're supposed to read the author's note of apology!!" she accused as she pointed at the piece of paper clutched in Kenshin's hands. She released her grip on him as she stood outside waiting for Kenshin to finish up the letter.
The man looks down at the piece of paper and quickly realizes why he had come out in the first place. He clears his throat and opens up the letter.
The audience is silent, except for a few sounds of random coughing here and there, as Kenshin begins.
A Note of Apology:
Sorry for the long delay in updating this story. I know I said that I would update again by the end of this month, however I'm finding it extremely difficult to come up with the next chapter. This is especially true since I have been working on "Possession". The two contrasting personalities in Kenshin in the both of these stories are definitely playing its number on how I characterize him in "A Memory Forgotten." For the readers of both of these stories, I'm sure you understand what I mean. The Kenshin in this story is much more truthful to the happy/angsty oro-ing rurouni of the anime series while the Kenshin in "Possession" is rather cold, aloof, and . .well, possessive.
Since I'm almost done with "Possession", I've decided that I'll put this fic on hold until I finish that one. I'm really sorry to have disappointed you all by not updating in awhile, but just so that you know . . I do have an outline of the rest of this story and I will complete it.
I'm adding an excerpt of what to expect for the next chapter after this note.
And thanks to all my readers who have been reading and reviewing this fic. You should know how much I enjoy reading your feedback.
Thanks again. I'll now have Kenshin compensate by giving all of you . .
Kenshin's face begins to flush a dark, crimson read as he reads the next word. He quickly folds the letter back up and stuffs it back into his sleeve. Kaoru eyes him a bit awkwardly.
"Compensate by doing what?" A random fanboy shouts from the audience.
"Oro . . by . . the author wants sessha to . . . to . ." Kenshin fumbles with his words as he tries to find some sort of lie to cover up the truth. "She wants sessha to . . to .. cook for everyone!"
The audience looks at the man in the front a bit queerly, but happily agrees anyway. Who wouldn't want to have some of Kenshin's homemade cooking?
Kaoru looks over at Kenshin and looks at him worriedly as she whispered, "But Kenshin . . I don't think we have enough food."
The man then whispers to her quietly enough so that the others won't hear. "Demo . . the author wants sessha to go hug everyone."
Blue eyes widened at what she heard and a feeling of possessiveness began to fill her senses.
"Kenshin . . what shall we make? Onigiri?" Kaoru asked as she brushed the matter aside.
"Ororo . . maybe it's better if I just make the food, de gozaru yo. Why don't you rest, Kaoru-dono?"
Excerpt from next chapter:
Seeing that the doctor had left, Kenshin quickly began walking into the small house, wondering about how Soujiro was doing. Right as he was about to slide open the door, he heard Soujiro's voice.
"Kao-chan . . . Kao-chan . . please don't . . please don't leave me," he said weakly.
Kenshin widened his eyes as he felt his heart stop. Did Soujiro fall in love with his Kaoru? He stood there, anticipating with both fear and anxiety, as he waited for her response.
"I won't leave you Sou-chan . . ." Kaoru said with determination.
The lavender-eyed man who had heard every word she had said felt his heart shatter into pieces.
Kaoru-dono . . Kaoru-dono loves Soujiro after all . . .
I was too late.
