Ch. 3 ~Those eyes...

Those eyes.

They have haunted my dreams, my day and night...they are what I pray to see every morning I rise with the sun, and they are what I wish to see before I close them again to join the world of dreams.

Those eyes.

They're in front of me, yet...I wonder if I'm dreaming...

Those eyes...

Brown pools of gratitude, years of frustration, loss, passion and happiness in that chocolate stare. Everything I love and despise in those two small orbs.

My strength and my weakness.

"Tenchi..."

I can't help my own tears, as they fall and run towards him with the wind. I can't help the sob that escapes my throat, or the sudden give away of my knees as I fall towards the earth.

Tenchi...

I pinch my arm, and moan when I don't wake up and find myself in the same situation I've been in since he left.

I'm not alone...

He's there.

His eyes close, and when they open I see the torment and inner turmoil surface. He's fighting a battle...

I smile so softly, so tentatively and painfully I wonder if it's even a smile.

But he sees and he smiles back. He walks towards me, gathering my shaking form in his arms. I smell him, feel him...he's real. He's so damn real...

My hands gathered the soft Jurian cloth, as I continue to shake and not believe what is happening...it was too good to be true, to crazy and too good...

This happiness would never be mine...

"Your back..."

He laughs, throwing me up and embracing me once again in his strong arms. He swings me around, and I can see the happiness dance in his eyes like wild fire. His hands dig into my hips, and I don't recall feeling more alive since he left...

It's like he was my air, my water...my strength and energy. I think he was my soul, the power that separated me from being alive and dead.

I felt full, like I just ate the biggest feast in the world. My throat felt like I just drank a fountain of the cleanest water, after being thirsty for so many years...
"Tenchi, say something..."

I just wanted to hear his voice...make sure this was real. I didn't know anymore.

"Ryoko, what can I say?"

Innocence was radiating in his voice, making me bury my head back into his arms and circling his waist so I could hold him as much as I was physically allowed to.

"Anything, I just am so happy to hear your voice again..."

I just held him; pressing onto his body like I could absorb him forever, make him one with me. In a way, I wish we were one person...that way I could always hear his heart beat forever.

His hands touched my back, hesitantly at first, but slowly his warm palms pressed against my quivering skin. I exhaled, my eyes closing in this insane ecstasy...like I've never been touched, never felt anything warm...always have been cold.

His fingers trailed towards my cyan hair, circling his index with a lock of my hair...tugging gently, but caressing the same time. He pushed me away a bit, to look into my eyes with his own. To catch my golden fire with his brown earth.

Oh, if he only knew what he does to me...

If he could only feel this fire that was burning my whole body...

His eyes closed, as he leaned closer to me...his skin flawless, shinning in the setting sun, like a golden jewel I had found hidden in the deepest sand of the wildest dessert. Perfectly, he was coming closer towards me, letting his instincts allow him to kiss me.

Kiss me? It was a wanton desire, like taking a bite from the forbidden fruit...

What felt like forever slowly ended, as he gently kissed me, letting all those years of being apart fly into my mind. My eyes closed also, my heart telling me I didn't need to look anymore. He was here, in front of me...kissing me...I could feel him with every fiber of my mind and body, soul and heart.

Me, Ryoko Hakubi...being kissed by the man I loved before I was even born..

His lips felt like everything I had dreamed off, they were like the softest sakura petal...tasted like the sweetest sugar, tangy like the best sake I've ever tasted in my entire life.

I was drinking him, taking in every cell, fiber, taste...anything that was him. I was memorizing every nanosecond, remembering what I could so when he left, I could go back to cherish this split second...

He pulled away, his eyes hooded and looking full of lust...

"...Tenchi..."

I could only whisper his name, before he bent his head to capture my lips once again in his own. I could have stayed this way forever, for the rest of eternity...oh, kami...if a war was taking place around me, I wouldn't lift my lips from his own.

Oh, if I only had some crazy glue...(*evil smile*)

His hand had moved once again, caressing the small of my back, pushing his body into mine...

Oh I felt him so painfully bad, felt his excitment as it pressed against the inside of my thigh...Oh, it almost made me faint in surprise...

We backed into the tree, sliding onto the ground that was pretty soft...he looked into my eyes, and I wondered what was possibly going through his mind...

Was he regretting taking this course of action, maybe he was confused about what he felt, what he wanted...

Maybe Ayeka was on his mind...maybe they got into some nasty fight, he wanted to get a revenge and was using me...

"Tenchi, why are you doing this?"

He slowly sat up, grasping my hand in his own, bringing my fingers to his lips and kissing slowly each knuckle on my hand. I took my hand from his own, and looked into the lake that held the magnificent shine of the sun as it slowly was ending it's day.

"Ryoko...ever since I left you alone, married Ayeka...my mind wont leave you, all I think about is you and your golden eyes.."

My eyes shined with undying tears, tears that never slept...that came once or twice a day, cried for a man and dream I had lost so many years ago...

"I cried every day for you Tenchi, even before you left..."

He grabbed me, dragged me to his lap. His hands clinged to my body, pressing his chest into mine...

Our hearts beat together, synchronizing, beating the same fast frenzy.

"Ryoko, ohh kami...I love you so much...I'm going insane..."

I pressed my lips to his, pushing him to lie on the ground as I straddled his body. His heart was beating so fast, his body starting to sweat in a passion neither of us knew we had...

He loved me!! He loved me so much!!

My hands gathered his robes, lifting them from his body...letting me look at his flesh, smell his body and linger in his warm presence. My eyes wouldn't leave his, they just couldn't move...His own hands came to my top, slowly and cautiously taking the garment off with nervous tension. Both of us pressed together, our naked chests experiencing sensation so implausible, so surreal...

Oh, Tenchi...what would I do without you?

He was going to make love to me, something I have always thought to be a fantasy that would never in a million years be mine. Like a hunger I would have to live with for the rest of my life...

But my dream was becoming reality, and I would hate the whole world if I woke up...
