Chapter 3: Responsibilities for the Future
Louise spied on Saji from a distance. They were at the St. Francis Xavier cemetery now and Louise was wondering what on Earth Saji was doing in a place like this. She kept a distance from him, so as to not disturb him in whatever he was doing. After following for a while, Louise saw Saji come upon one of the many tombstones in the cemetery.
"Hey Kinue, it's Saji. Long time no see."
Louise opened her eyes in disbelief. She was curious to know what Saji was doing, but kept her distance as to not disturb him.
"I know I last visited you a couple of years ago when they released Louise from the hospital, but I have a bigger problem now."
Louise saw Saji's right hand shaking, and wanted to rush over to him to calm him down, like the many times he had calmed her down.
"I… I don't think I can be a proper father."
Saji right hand began to shake even more so than before, and Louise noticed. But she was confused about what he meant, when he said that he couldn't be a proper father.
"I… I don't know how dads are supposed to act; I-I don't even remember what my own father looked like."
Saji hand began to shake even more, and before she knew it, Louise rushed over to Saji and grabbed his right hand. Saji quickly spun around and found his wife behind him.
"Louise! I didn't think you'd be here-" Saji said with a surprise tone.
"Listen to what you're saying Saji." Louise said as she stared him straight in the eyes. "I know you, and from what I know you're the gentlest and kindness person I've seen in my life."
"But I can't Louise, I can't-"
Louise slapped Saji across the face.
"Listen to yourself Saji Crossroad!" Louise raised Saji's ring finger closer to his face. "Remember the promise you made to me at our wedding?"
Saji stood still for a moment, and then the memories came flooding back in, the wedding at the small church in Spain. How most of the members from Celestial Beings came in to congratulate them since neither Saji nor Louise had any relatives. Then he remembered the promise that he had made to Louise that day, "I'll protect you no matter what Louise and I won't run away."
Saji began to shake his right hand again, while tears fell from his eyes. Louise hushed him down and pulled him into a gentle embrace.
"I'm so sorry Louise." Saji said as he wiped away the tears.
"Shh…" Louise said. "I should be the one saying sorry for slapping you. Sorry about that."
She allowed him to wipe away the last remaining tears from his face. She then showed Saji her right ring finger and pointed to her ring.
"You see this?" she asked. "This ring is going to stay on my hand forever Saji, and as long as it does, it'll mean that you're my other half Saji, and I need you."
She pulled him into a romantic kiss, hence pleasure exploded in her mouth. She couldn't remember the last time she had kissed Saji passionately, speaking of which, could've been as far back as the wedding itself. After a while, they both pulled apart, blushing madly while trying to cover it up with little success. Louise then placed Saji's hand on her stomach.
"I know you Saji, and I also know you're going to be a great father."
Saji smiled at Louise, "Thanks Louise. Now let's go back home."
He wrapped his arms around Louise's waist.
"I love you Louise."
"I love myself too Saji."
Saji and Louise both laughed blissfully as they left the cemetery side by side, both with a renewed sense of responsibility to one another. Saji knew things would never be the same again.
It would be better.
