NOTE- Ok, I'm too lazy. This is the last chapter, I rushed so much writing this story. This wasn't the best story, but I hope you enjoy!
"No..." TenTen stood in shock. "NO!!!" She grabbed the paddles and continuously shocked Neji's body. His body bounced up and down from the shocks. The scared nurses went to find another doctor, to tell him that she was crazy.
TenTen didn't know if she was crazy or not. She just wanted to save her lover. Even though they fought all the time. Even though he never showed her his love. She still wanted to save him. He still owed her a card. He couldn't die! She threw away the paddles and began to press on his heart. She pressed with all her strength, hoping it would revive him, but he didn't wake up. He didn't even say "It hurts". He just laid there with his eyes closed, punishing her with his silence.
Dr. Jian (another doctor) angrily pushed her away. By that time, she couldn't see clearly anymore. She cried. She wailed. She bowled until no sounds could come out of her mouth.
"It's too late, Dr. TenTen. He's already dead. I'm sorry." Dr. Jian patted her on the shoulder. Dr. Jian and Neji knew each other and ate together once. TenTen introduced them.
"He can't die." She shook her head. "He can't die!!" She struggled to run to him.
"Dr. TenTen, control yourself!" Dr. Jian slapped her. "I understand what you're going through, but you're a doctor."
Yes, I'm a doctor, but I'm also a regular person. How can Dr. Jian understand how I feel? I've loved him for so many years that it's become a habit. How can I just throw away a habit? Besides, he still owed me a card, thought TenTen. "I want him to live! I want him to live!" She ran to Neji again and tried to knock the life back into his body.
"Take her away!" That day, she lost her control and her professionalism.
And that day happened to be Valentine's Day.
Afterwards, she asked Neji's co-workers why he left work early that day.
They told her that after she hung up the phone, he tried to call her several times but couldn't reach her. Worried, he drove to the hospital to find her and got hit by a large truck on the way.
When she heard this, she froze. Her tantrum killed him. Just because of an unmailed card, he died. After that, she lost her privilege to be childish.
Like an abandoned cat, she couldn't even cry anymore. After his death, she couldn't cry anymore, regardless of how touching the plot or how tear-jerking the dialogue. They didn't affect her anymore.
Now, she's only left with a cat and a seldomly used computer. Stepping over the cat, she turned on the computer. Even though she knew no one would send her a mail, she still hoped that someone would remember her on this day.
"Meow, meow." She looked at Christine to see what was wrong. She finished her milk. She went into the kitchen to get her more milk then came back to look at the computer screen.
I have... 100 emails! Who would be bored enough to send me 100 junk mail? She thought, stunned.
TenTen was just about to delete them all when she received another mail, and this one said: "Because of system error, we could not send these until today. We apologize for the delay." The sender was her ISP (internet service provider).
She looked at the 1st mail. It showed that the send date was last year's Valentine's Day. Her heart began to beat fast. Could he have sent these?
With a trembling hand, she opened the mail. The first thing that popped up was a gorgeous red rose set against green leaves. Then a beautiful melody began to play... "Only Love". She couldn't believe it. The rose was so beautiful and the music was so dreamy. She almost thought she was in a fantasy. Most touching of all were the words underneath the rose, because the words read like a beautiful poem.
"Knowing you so many years, I've never sent you any flowers. Today I send you a rose."
I received it and it's so beautiful.
"You know we are always fighting. We can never really open our hearts and tell each other how we feel."
Yes, but it's all your fault for being so distant.
"I know I always make you mad by the things I say."
Good that you're admitting it.
"But today I want to say to you: I'm sorry, and I love you."
I waited so many years for those words.
"And I want to tell you a good news. I finally saved enough money."
You already have enough money. Why did you need so much?
"So TenTen, let's get married!! I was afraid to propose to you, because I didn't trust in my ability to give you the good life you deserve. But now I've saved enough money so we don't have to wait anymore."
wanted you to wait? I'm already yours.
"Today, I use this card to propose to you. Will you marry me, TenTen? Will you?"
That was the content of the whole card. Like a fool, she kept reading his words and talking to him. It was like she could hear his voice and see him again.
As if it was back to 1 year ago with them constantly fighting.
The song played over and over. Repeating Nana's heartbreaking voice.
love can make a memory. Only love can make a moment last. You were
there and all the world was young and all it's songs unsung. and I
remember you then when love was all, all you were living for,
and how you gave that love to me..."
The lyrics of this song fits our love so closely. When he was alive, my world was so young. Every day, I could find a something different to fight with him about. But after he left, my life is only left with memories and coldness that will never go away, TenTen thought, full of sorrow.
"Will you marry me?"
When she read those words, her tears unconsciously came, wetting the keyboard.
Will I? If he's in front of me, I will definitely kick him and call him a big fool. If I wasn't willing, I wouldn't have waited until today.
So she moved the cursor over the "Reply" box, and typed the response that she had already prepared for so many years - "I will."
I will - be by his side for the rest of my life. I will - fight with him forever. That is how she answered him, but the only response she got was the repeating song "Only Love."
Nevertheless, she opened every single letter, accepted every singled rose, and typed the same response: "I will."
She replied 100 times, and "Only Love" played 100 times. In this cold Valentine's night, the line that's been broken for 1 year finally got reconnected.
I answered you. What about you?
A/N: That was the end. Again, this was my first story. Hope it wasn't…TOO bad. Please comment and review! Thanks!
