Chapter 1- Wish Upon A Star
"Hey, how are you?"
"Oookkay, so how is she?"
And again, his question was left unanswered. Rei Otohata was always the silent one anyway, what did he expect? All he ever did was ran a hand through his jet-black hair and stare at nothing in particular with his impossibly blank and mysterious blue-gray eyes.
"Uhm, you're thinking again?"
A glare. Okay, that was an improvement; perhaps the next one would be promising? Perhaps he'll talk to him now and perhaps he can find out why this fellow seems to be very different from all the angels?
Deadly glare of the wrath of all that is evil and… evil.
Gulp. And perhaps not.
"Alright, Alright. I'll leave now." And again, he had chosen to leave the young lad alone or else he'll have to risk himself of evaporating at the very force of Rei's glare. That thought alone sent shivers down his spine.
Aya Hoshino gazed at the sky above, it was streaked with clouds, and what could be seen of its dark blue body was speckled by hundreds of silver shining stars. She loved star gazing because it always reminded her of how she and her parents used to be. When they were still alive, at least… at that very moment, something caught her eye.
A falling star.
Wish upon a star...
And one of your dreams will come true...
She remembered what her mother had told her when she was little. Laughing a bit at the thought of how silly it was, she closed her eyes, clasped her hands together... and wished for the only thing she'll ever want.
"Rei, after 8 long years, we finally got a mission for you." A grin slowly crept upon the silver-haired seraph's face.
Oh Joy. He smirked.
"Aren't you even going to say anything about this? Or at least try to protest or ask anything about this mission?" the seraph sighed exasperatedly. He knew Rei well and he knew that the lad was expecting some rather annoying and effortless errands by that smirk on his pale face.
"Amuse me." Rei supported his forehead with a loose fist.
The seraph cleared his throat. "Anyway, we'll send you to earth, disguised as a mere mortal to uh, see if you are capable of handling these situations."
Or you're just all sadistic sick bastards who can't seem to stop annoying me.
"And uh, all you have to do is to try to find the right one for her within three months."
He arched a brow. Her, meaning Aya Hoshino, the girl he's supposed to protect? The girl that he had somehow saved during his time on Earth because his brain cells weren't functioning all that well? The girl that always seemed happy all the time although she was hurting inside? That girl?
"So what would it be?"
Ah, he knew damn well what the outcome of this conversation will lead to.
And he's not going to like it.
Feeling her consciousness slightly draining from her, she rested her head on a soft pillow and tried to silently drift to slumber land. Her eyes almost shut closed but a growing bright light distracted her, she went out to see what was causing this sudden commotion.
As she drew nearer to the cause of that disturbance, she saw a young man, dressed in white, unconscious. "What happened to him?"
Dawn swiftly came and Rei opened his blue-gray eyes, only to find that he was in a different place. He quickly tried to stand up but his back prohibited him, for it was throbbing because of severe pain. That seraph should learn to send us here safely next time.
"So you're awake." A sweet voice suddenly jolted Rei out of his thoughts and into reality. "I saw you outside last night so I decided to bring you here for you are badly injured."
God must have hated me so...
"By the way, I'm Aya... you?"
Rei pretended to have a headache and he acted really well. "Are you alright, sir?" Aya inquired, her face was etched with concern and worry.
"I... I... Can't remember anything..." he stated bluntly but whatever, it still worked.
"I think... you have an ...amnesia, if you don't mind, ...I want to help you recover your lost memory."
"W-what's... my name?" he again pretended to stutter. "Do you know me?"
Aya shook her head apologetically as she met his intent gaze. "Sorry, but if you want I could give you a suitable name."
He did not say a word and only waited for her to continue. "Since, you're so quiet. I think I'll call you Rei."
Coincidence. Just coincidence. This is pure COINCIDENCE, dammit! She doesn't know my name, what is she, an ORACLE?!
Rei's eyes showed no emotion whatsoever even though his thoughts showed the opposite, but he still inquired why Aya chose that name. "You see, when I was 7, I met this kid. He was silent and cold. But if not for him, I wouldn't be in this world; he saved my life and wasted his."
"His name is Rei?"
Aya nodded shyly, "Why am I even telling you this stuff?"
"Don't ask me." He stated and looked away but even though how much he tried, his mind still held an image of her somewhere deep in him that he could still see her flowing dark blue hair, her twinkling cobalt blue eyes, her thin yet full lips—it was as if every soft angle of her was already engraved in his mind without him even knowing. Ah, but she does look rather—
What the hell am I thinking?
Must be that rough landing… yeah, it's all gotten into my head.
Let's go with that.
