What They Feel

I find myself alone once again. No big surprise really. I should be used to spending my nights by myself but I'm not. After so long I got used to the fact that I was never going to be with anyone for the rest of my life. Still it pains me to see couples together, laughing and smiling at each other without a care in the world.

Their hands encircled, their fingers entwined. Her head rests on his shoulder while he escorts her home. She's smiling not noticing the look he's giving her. It's one of contentment. A by stander such as I could very much tell they had found love. I can feel my heart constrict with envy and sadness. I turn my head shielding my eyes from their view and continue on my way.

After awhile I don't know where I'm going any longer. I wander the streets of Central in the dark until I come across a park. It's pretty dark by now and the streetlights have come on, casting eerie shadows on the asphalt. I cross the road and follow a trail that leads into it.

The trees are willows whose branches practically hang from the sky. I pull aside its curtain of leaves to reveal a spectacular sight. Beneath the tree lulled a small lake of water to which batches of fireflies hovered above it zooming every which way. It was such a beautiful place to me I hardly recognized myself to be in the middle of a huge growing city.

A wooden bench was placed beneath the willow and I took a seat. Gazing out onto the lake I didn't want to think. I didn't want to think about anything at all. Not work, not family, not friends and certainly not love, my only love. I felt tears begin to build.

It's dark out I can cry.

I never allowed myself to cry. Not over something as stupid as this, but I couldn't stop those little droplets from traveling down my face. Besides, it was dark enough that if anyone were to approach me they wouldn't notice.

I heard a twig snap behind me. I swiveled around to see who or what I was. A man with raven black hair and dark eyes, someone I knew. I turned away. Don't let him be here! My head screamed.

"Can I sit here?" he asked. I merely nod in response knowing he won't go anytime soon.

"It's beautiful isn't it?" he makes small talk. I can tell he's want to talk about something completely irrelevant.

"Just like you." Or not.

I turn to him with a strange look. What did he mean by that?

He took my hand and pulled me up. Skeptically I followed him down to the water's edge. The moonlight was bright enough to see my wet face. I quickly turned my head so he wouldn't see, but I was too late.

"Why are you crying?" he asks. I don't answer. He takes my head in his hands gently and has me look him in the eye.

"A beauty such as yourself shouldn't be crying… you don't deserve to cry…" he trails off. It's as if he just now realizes everything. Where he is, who he's with. His eyes search mine but I won't, can't meet his piercing orbs.


That does it. I can't resist anymore. Our eyes meet and to me, it's breath taking. The scenery just makes it even more so. The moon's pale light reflects off his jet-black hair and it nearly makes me weak. Suddenly I notice that the attractively dark hair is coming closer. In my mind I'm screaming "NO DON'T DO IT HE'S YOUR SUPERIOR OFFICER!" I hear it but I don't listen to it. His lips are so close I long for them to kiss me.

"Roy-" my voice is cut off by his mouth over mine. A shock wave washes over me. It feels cliché but I don't care. It's what I've wanted for a long time. A simple kiss to ignite the fire within me. For a kiss to make me feel so wanted, needed but above all loved.

We pull away. I inhale and press my forehead against his. He wraps his arms around my waist and I understand how all the women feel now. They feel security and warmth and they never want to let it go. That's how I feel now. That's how I want to stay.


A/N: hey. Its ended. It was a real pleasure to have written this story for all of you. I could list all of you who have helped me but it would take several pages and a lot of time but I believe I have taken enough time writing this final piece. I hope you understand that I had to get it just right. The perfecting ending. I tried many times and I just couldn't seem to get it. I finally wrote this and decided it was good enough. I hope you enjoy the last installment of UNNOTICED. I will go through and edit eventually that is the only updating I wil be doing anytime soon , just to tell you. The second part, which is still untitled, will hopefully be posted soon. Thank you SO much.
