Five: "I'll walk you home."

Time passed too quick when they were together. Before long it was dark out and Riku couldn't stop casting paranoid glances into the shadows around every corner. Her hand in his was a small comfort, but he was more worried about the fragile thing they were building than either one of them alone.

"I'll walk you home." The words slipped out before he could stop them."I mean, if that's okay."

"If you want to – but what about you, Riku?" Her hand tightened around his.

"I'll be fine. Just... let me do this."

He couldn't lose her again.

Next time: "Have a good day at work."
