Alone

Kei could hardly believe his feeling of relief when it became official. He was married. He was married to Mizuho, his teacher. He was married to his teacher who just happened to be an alien. Shouldn't he be alarmed? He decided that logically, he should be very concerned with the turn of events, but instead there was a sensation of relief. After all, one thing most humans fear is being alone.

He didn't have to worry about living out his years alone; he wouldn't have to worry about finding his special someone, or more importantly not finding them. He would be forever with this beautiful woman. Perhaps they'll grow to love each other or at the very least be content with one another. Kei wouldn't allow himself to consider that should she return home, he would once again find himself alone in a world moving too fast for him.
