I was bored and a few people asked me to do this so I did.
I pulled the blade farther away and took careful aim. As I am about to strike, my door burst open. He's standing there, staring at me with those wide emerald eyes. The knife falls from my hands and drops to the floor with a clatter. He rushes over and gathers me in his arms.
"Raven, how could you even think of doing that?" He is crying, and I know I am. I don't know why he is, he shouldn't worry about me.
He shakes me gently. "Raven, what's wrong? Talk to me please." his voice is filled with sadness and pain.
I reach out and touch his cheek. That's when I notice that I am bleeding. I forgot that I had cut my hand.
He sees the cut and takes my hand in his, ripping off a sleeve of his outfit and bandages my hand. He's still crying, I wish he would stop. I hate to see him in so much pain.
"Why?" he asks again.
I have a hard time answering him. "Terra." is all I can get out.
He hugs me tightly, I see the note clutched in his hand. "I'm so sorry Raven. I know I should have told you sooner." I shake my head. I don't want him to apologize. It makes me feel worse.
He caresses my cheek with his soft hands and draws me closer to him. "I love you." he whispers in my ear. "More than Terra, more than life itself. If you die, I would die."
I look up at him, too stunned to say anything. He leans down and in the next instant, his lips are on mine.
I've never felt this way before. His warm lips, soft hands. They spread fire throughout my body. Every place he touches burns like the fires of Hell. It feels so good. He starts to pull away but I bring him back, clutching him. He is my last life line. I reluctantly pull away, I have to tell him.
"I love you too Garfield. I'm sorry, ever since She came back, I've been so lost, I felt like I lost you." He shakes his head and kisses me once more. Reigniting the flame inside of me. He pulls away and cradles me in his arms.
"You should get some sleep." he whispers.
I hold onto him. "Only if you stay with me."
He gave a small chuckle. "Wild beasts wouldn't make me leave." he stood up with me in his arms and walked over to my bed, setting me down and climbing in next to me.
I wrap my arms around his waist and cuddle as close to him as I can. He holds me tight against his body as he kisses me again.
"My Raven." he whispers as he pulls away
