One-Winged Angel

Pairing: Takari

Chapter Three: Together Until the End of Time

Takari-san: Okay here's the last installment… Since most are probably puzzled by the title after I read the reviews, I decided to explain… The One-winged Angel here is not the one in which God cuts of one wing and kicks the angel out of heaven but another one. It's based on God making humans as the closest to angels, giving them one wing each and in order to go back up to him, the human must find the part of his wing, the partner of his wing or soul mate. That is what silver moonlight told me anyway… Enjoy this last installment. I don't own Digimon.

Takeru clutched his shirt tightly; this is it, his last hope. Bearing the crest of hope, he was usually optimistic but this time he couldn't help thinking of the worst that may happen. He was already rejected once… Should he really believe Yamato and Mimi that he has a chance? Life rarely had second chances… Why should he have one?

Trying to brush those thoughts out of his mind, he nervously inserted a letter into Hikari's locker. He was about to run when he was stopped by something hard, a pillar of strength, Taichi.

"Hello there Takeru…" Taichi said forcing a smile.

"Hey, Taichi…" Takeru said, he ran, trying to pass him but was stopped by Taichi's arm. He was dead, if Hikari told her brother what happened, how he made her cry… well, who knows what Taichi will do to him.

"Where are you going Takeru? I need to have a talk with you…," he said. Takeru surely thought it sounded as if Taichi was going to kill him.

He slowly nodded, not finding the words to reply.

"I heard of what you did to my sister." He said slowly.

"Look Taichi… I'm sorry. I really am…" Takeru bowed asking for forgiveness.

"You don't love Hikari then?" Taichi looked at him testily.

"Of course I do… I was just tactless then, I sounded insincere… I'm really sorry about that." Takeru bowed once more.

"Don't say sorry to me, tell that to Hikari. Yamato told me about your plan… good luck then." Taichi said walking away, "but don't think I'll go easy on you when you try and become my brother-in-law." He said waving his hand as a sign of good-bye.

"W-What?" Takeru stuttered, blushing uncontrollably for a while until he remembered he had to run before Hikari finds him. He was also in shock that Taichi didn't murder him but he guessed that Taichi was just in a good mood today.

*******

Sighing for the umpteenth time that day, Hikari banged her head on her locker. The day was boring, and became even more boring and even heart wrenching that she didn't talk to Takeru at all the whole day.

Yes, it was mainly her fault that they weren't in speaking terms but it was also partly his…

Tears now threatened to fall as she remembered how out of the blue Takeru just confessed his love for her. She couldn't help feeling that Takeru was just playing around with her, he sounded so insincere… he might have found out that she liked him and decided to tease her about it. She couldn't help it… she was a pessimist.

Opening her locker, she arranged her books neatly before her eyes fell on a piece of parchment she never saw before… but seeing the signature imprinted on it her main guess was it was from Takeru. Afraid to open the letter her hand just remained frozen on top of it…

"Hikari!" smiled her genki purple-haired best friend.

"Miyako…" smiled Hikari turning around, her hand, which was frozen, was moved by her to wave at Miyako.

After a few moments, Miyako was right beside her, wearing her cat-like grin, looking at her suspiciously.

"W-What?" she asked backing away.

"Love letter, eh?" Miyako grinned, holding up the parchment she was looking at a while ago.

"W-What are you talking about?" Hikari stuttered.

"Who's the lover boy… let's see…" Miyako said slowly opening the parchment.

"H-Hey…" Hikari said snatching it away from Miyako.

"Oh come on… well, you could tell me later, I think I heard Koushiro calling…" she smiled before vanishing, going to the direction of the computer room.

Hikari was once again left with the letter; mustering up enough courage… she slowly took of the seal.

Hikari,

I'm sorry… I guess I went a bit too fast and sounded insincere… but I just wanted you to know I meant every single word I said. Mainly that's why I'm writing this as a sign of truce. Can we be in speaking terms again?

I've been reading our book in class a lot lately… it's kinda cool… in one part it said that God created humans as the closest to angels and that He gave them each one wing… so in order for humans to come to heaven they must fly and find the one with the other half of there wing. It's a definition of love, have you heard about this?

It's my basis I guess of finding out what love is. I thought you are the bearer of my wing, maybe it's true… hey, can you meet up with me later, at the park, nothing special… at five.

Thanks Hikari, I'll always love you…

, Takeru

Tears threatened to fall again but she stopped it and ran quickly towards the park.

*******

Taking off his hat from his head, Takeru was once again nervous. Hikari might not come… his mind chanted as he brushed off the sweat that had collected at his head.

He was taking another big risk in what he was about to do but he had to do it. Without taking risks, no one would have been able to achieve anything. The bigger the risk the bigger the gain.

Putting the earphones of his mp3 player on his ears, he turned it on trying to drown his anxiety with music.


Why, do you always do this to me?
Why, couldn't you just see through me?
How come, you act like this?
Like you just don't care at all.

Do you expect me to believe I was the only one to fall?
I could feel I could feel you near me, even though you're far away.
I could feel I could feel you baby, why?

It's not supposed to feel this way.
I need you, I need you
More and more each day.
It's not supposed to hurt this way.
I need you, I need you, I need you…
Tell me, are you and me still together?
Tell me, do you think we could last forever?
Tell me, why

Hey, listen to what we're not saying
Let's play, a different game than what we're playing
Try, to look at me and really see my heart

Do you expect me to believe I'm gonna let us fall apart?
I could feel I could feel you near me, even when you're far away
I could feel I could feel you baby, why?

It's not supposed to feel this way
I need you, I need you
More and more each day
It's not supposed to hurt this way
I need you, I need you, I need you
Tell me, are you and me still together?
Tell me, do you think we could last forever?
Tell me, why?

So go and think about whatever you need to think about
Go ahead and dream about whatever you need to dream about
And come back to me when you know just how you feel, you feel
I could feel I could feel you near me, even though you're far away
I could feel I could feel you baby, why?

It's not supposed to hurt this way
I need you, I need you
More and more each day
It's not supposed to hurt this way
I need you, I need you, I need you
Tell me

It's not supposed to hurt this way.
I need you, I need you
More and more each day.
It's not supposed to hurt this way.
I need you, I need you, I need you…
Tell me, are you and me still together?
Tell me, do you think we could last forever?
Tell me, why?

He sighed, his mp3 player always did that, made him hear fitting songs on his attitude and feelings… but that, that was a bit too fitting. He sighed, the song made him more nervous. Sweat was making its way down his face again. He was shaking too…

"Takeru?" a voice said sounding unsure.

Turning around Takeru found Hikari looking at him.

"Hikari…" Takeru smiled.

"I read your letter…" she blushed.

"I guess you did…" he blushed as well.

"Takeru… I don't know what to say…" Hikari turned crimson.

"Then don't say anything…" Takeru kidded.

"Takeru!" Hikari exclaimed.

"I was just kidding…" Takeru smiled, "I guess we're in speaking terms again, huh?"

"Yeah…" Hikari grinned.

"So you don't hate me anymore?" Takeru asked unsure.

"On the contrary..." Hikari blushed.

"W-What?" Takeru managed to say though nervously.

"I love you…" Hikari looked down at the ground.

"Y-You do?" Takeru stuttered.

"Yeah, one-winged angel…" smiled Hikari, patting him on the head.

"I can be human; I can be a one-winged angel, for all I care. I just know that whatever I am I'll always love you." Takeru smiled pulling her into a gentle kiss.

A moment of bliss… but Takeru knew he would have more as the days go by… Pulling away from the kiss, he gave her his cute angelic smile. They looked at each other for a while before…

"Whatever you are… I'll always be your soul mate. I can be the bearer of your other wing, or just plain human as long as you love me and I love you." Hikari said after the kiss.

"Hey… what if I'm a worm?" Takeru asked jokingly.

"I'll have to think about that one…" Hikari played along.

"Ouch… that hurt." Takeru said pretending to be emotionally stabbed.

"Aww… did I hurt you?" Hikari asked in a baby voice as Takeru nodded, "Let me make it better…" she said kissing him softly.

*******

"I guess it went fine after all…" Yamato smiled happily watching both Takeru and Hikari chase each other lovingly, from a bush.

"Yeah…" Mimi said blissfully.

"No, he still has one more thing to do…" Tai glared at the two sternly.

"What is that?" Sora asked curiously.

"… to pass being my brother-in-law…"

*owari*

Takari-san: . I can't believe my second trilogy is over… though the idea of an epilogue for this one is hitting me… I'm not sure about it yet… still Takeru and Hikari were so sweet!!! O__O  They were both so cute!!! ^____^ anyway, I have to cut this short since I'm still working on another fic… The song featured this time was "Why" by Avril Lavigne. It's a great song! I don't own it and I can't sing it. Bye folks… R/R
