I was with my Uncle Tyki in the middle of London. It has been ten years since the Holy War ended, and, obviously, we lost. The Clan of Noah has been striped of their powers, and the Innocence ceased to exist as well. I am now 24 years old, and Tyki is 36 We actually live in Portugal, but we were in town because we were invited to Allen and Lenalee's wedding, which depressed me at first, but over time, I got over Allen. Tyki and I walked by a tavern, and Tyki suggested, "Why don't we stop to get a quick drink?"
I shrugged at Tyki's suggestion. "Sure," I replied. I could use some alcohol anyway. Tyki and I went into the tavern. Inside, there were people playing a few games of pool. Some were at the counter, drinking down all the beer they got. And some others were sitting at tables scattered across the place, some playing poker.
As Tyki and I walked towards the counter, we both heard a familiar voice ask, "Hey! Can I have another round over here!" The guy at the counter nodded at the request, and brought another glass of beer over to the one who asked for it. And what shocked the both of us is that it was Allen. "Thank you." Allen was sitting alone at a small table in the back corner of the building. Allen looked a little dizzy, his eyelids looked like they were having trouble staying open, and his cheeks had a bright red blush from drinking to much beer.
Allen looked different since I last met him. His hair was no longer the snowy white hair color that he had when I first met him. It was now red. And his weird scar that he received for turning his father into an Akuma looked just like a normal scar now. Since the dark matter no longer exist, there is nothing left to keep Mana's curse on Allen, so he doesn't have the look of a cursed anymore. And his entire left arm was gone. Since the Innocence is gone, and he wasn't born with a human left arm, he had nothing left for a left arm.
Tyki said, "The boy's drunk."
I asked, "What happened to him?"
"I don't know." Tyki gave me a little push towards Allen's direction. "Go talk to him. Between the both of us, Allen always had liked you better, and if he is that drunk there might be something wrong going on with him. He might need someone like you to talk to."
I nodded my head. "Alright, Tyki." I walked across the tavern, and sat down in a seat across from Allen. "Hey, Allen!" I greeted him cheerfully.
When Allen saw me take a seat across from him, his face brightened up. "Road!" he replied. "It's so good to see you."
"It's good to see you too, but why are you in a place like this?"
Allen looked depressed when I asked that question. He let out a sigh, lazily sat back on his chair, and he let his head drop back so he could look up at the ceiling. He replied, his voice full of sorrow, "Lenalee called off the wedding a few days ago."
"What?" I asked, my voice filled with a little anger. Even though it seemed that I would be glad to hear that Allen wouldn't be married to someone else, I felt a little angry at Lenalee. I mean, who would do something like that and hurt poor little Allen. "Why would she do that?"
"She got drunk one night, slept with Lavi, and she realized that she loved him more, and, after a long fight, she called off the wedding."
"Oh." Poor kid. At least it wasn't his fault that the wedding was called off.
Allen slouched forward, and looked at me in the eyes, his eyes full of sorrow. "Hey, Road, Lenalee moved out a while ago, and I've been feeling a little lonely, so would you spend the night at my house, if you don't mind?"
"Sure," I replied, but then I remembered something. "No wait," I thought about the situation before continuing, "I got a date tonight."
"Oh." Allen was looking a little bit more depressed when I said that.
"But I could cancel that if you want!" I quickly suggested, trying to see if that would cheer him up.
Allen shook his head. "No, no. I couldn't ask you to do that. You go ahead with your date."
The both of us stayed silent for a few minutes, then Allen asked, "Do you like him?"
I nodded, hesitating a few seconds before answering. "Yeah. He's a great guy. I started to date him after I heard that you were getting married to Lenalee as a way to get over you."
"I see." I took out a little pocket watch to see what time it was. After I saw the time, I closed the pocket watch, and put it back in the pocket on my blue skirt. I got up from my chair, and I said to Allen, "I'm sorry, Allen. Tyki and I got to be somewhere right about now."
"Okay." Allen was saddened by my leaving, and it killed me to see him like that. "Say 'hi' to Tyki for me."
"I will," I replied, hoping it would cheer Allen up just a little.
"Bye, Allen." I walked back up to Tyki. I pulled him from the drink he was having at the counter. "Come on, Tyki. We need to go meet up with Adam for lunch."
Tyki said, "Oh! Right." Tyki paid the clerk and quickly drank the rest of his drink before leaving. As we were walked towards the restaurant where we were supposed to meet Adam, Tyki asked, "So, how was Allen doing."
"Lenalee called off the wedding," I replied.
"Oh. Poor boy." I nodded my head in agreement. "Do you think he'll be alright?"
"I sure hope so."
Later that night. I was with my date at a restaurant. The guy I was dating was around my age. He was a tall, handsome looking man with black hair and green eyes. He was talking about his business trip to Egypt, and how he saw the pyramids and sphinxes during his free time, but while he was talking, I was deep in thought about Allen. I was over him, right? I tried to pay attention to Allen, but the thought of that depressed looked he had kept popping into my head. I finally snapped out of my thoughts when my date asked, "Road?"
"Huh?" I replied.
My date asked, "Are you alright, Road?"
I nodded. "Yeah," I lied, mostly to myself than to him.
"Are you sure?" He asked again, raising an eyebrow, suspicious that I am not okay.
I hesitated before answering, and I shook my head. "No."
"Is there anything I can do?"
I shook my head again. "No." I got up from my seat. "I'm sorry, but I got to leave now."
"Alright. So, when will we meet up again?"
I shook my head. "We won't."
"Oh." My date looked a little sad when he realized that I was breaking up with him. "Okay then."
"Sorry," I said to him, then I left the building. I ran across town to a nice quite neighborhood at the edge of town. I walked down a cul-de-sac to a nice, white, two story house sitting at the end of the street. I've been there a few times over the past couple of years. I was going to tell him that I still love him, and if he loves me back, great! And if he doesn't, oh well. I can stand to be alone. After all, none of the guys in the world could even compare to Allen. He is the one and only guy in this world that I'll ever love.
As I walked up his porch, I saw a silhouette of what looked like a person handing from a noose. "He wouldn't!" I ran up to the door, and, instead of knocking, I kicked the door down. I ran up the stairs in the house, and into a bed room from where I saw the silhouette, and sure enough, Allen somehow managed to tie up a noose with some fabric and was hanging himself. "Allen!" I looked around, and I saw a pair of scissors sitting on a nearby dresser. I picked up the scissors, and sat up a stool that was laying down on its side on the floor. I stood up on the stool, and I cut the fabric that was hanging him, and he fell to the ground.
I sat the scissors down, and I placed my head on his chest, hoping to hear a heartbeat, but I didn't hear one. Not giving up, I performed CPR on Allen, and I pounded on his chest a few times. I repeated the process several times, and right when I was about to give up, Allen took in a big gasp of air. I was relieved. Allen sat up, and he looked surprised that I was there. "Road?"
Even though that I was happy that he was alive, I was furious with him, and then next thing I did, I took my hand, and slapped him across his face on his right cheek. Much like what Lenalee did to him in the Rewinding City. "What the hell is the matter with you, Allen?" I yelled out at him.
"Why would you attempt to kill yourself, Allen?"
"I was depressed. I lost Lenalee. And right around that time, I started to develop feelings towards you, but when you told me that you were dating someone else, that just made my depression worse. That depression brought me so much pain that I couldn't stand, and the only way I could make it end was to kill myself."
"That's bullshit!" Allen looked at me with surprise. "What happened to the Allen I used to know? The Allen I knew wouldn't let something like this bring him down! He would follow his father's advice and continue walking instead of killing himself!" Allen looked at me some more with realization in his eyes. More tears started to flow down my eyes. "And besides, if you killed yourself, I never would have gotten the chance to tell you that I still love you."
Allen's look of realization disappeared, and surprise once again settled on his face. "You still love me?"
"You always have been, and always will be the one I'll ever love." I pulled Allen into an embrace. "Now, please, Allen, don't try to kill yourself. For me. I couldn't bare to lose you."
I heard Allen's voice say, "Alright, Road." I looked at Allen, and I saw something that made me feel relieved. Allen was smiling. "I'll stop." Allen used his right hand to grab my head, and he pulled me forward into a kiss. The kiss he gave me was better than the one he gave me on the ark. It was very pleasurable. Allen pulled back, and he wiped the tears from my eyes. "Now, cheer up, Road. I can't stand to see you cry like that."
"Alright, Allen." I smiled, and Allen and I gave each other a hug. I was so happy that I could finally be with my Allen.
