HERE IT IS!
BloodPlus: A New Generation
The Final Chapter
Saya smiled as she handed Haji his black and grey cello case.
"Here," She said, "I took care of it for you while you were gone."
"Thank you, Saya." He replied with a smile.
He gingerly opened the case and took out the cherry wood cello and horse hair bow. "You took very good care of it." He mused, studying the smooth wood.
He pulled out a black glassy block and Rosined (SP?) his bow before gently dragging it across the strings. A deep, beautiful sound emitted from the instrument. Saya sighed and sank back in her chair as she listened to the beautiful music that only Haji could create.
Then, all of a sudden, there was a knock on the bedroom door.
"Come in." Saya called as Haji stopped playing.
The door opened and Kai, Mao (it's 'bout time she showed up!!),and the twins (what were their names again…………………………oh YEAH!) Ame and Yuki came in.
"AUNTIE SAYA!! AUNTIE SAYA!!" They cried in unison (SP?).
Saya spread her arms wide for them to run to her. She embraced them tightly against her body. "Hey, guys." She murmured, burying her face in their brownish black hair.
Haji smiled to himself as he put his cello back in the case.
"HAJIIIIIII! YOU'RE IN TROUBLE!" Mao called.
"How the Hell could you do that?!" Mao screamed, charging at him.
"Uh oh." Saya winced, covering the twin's ears.
( BEWARE: strong language ahead)
"You Dumb idiot! I can't believe you just left like that! What the hell were you thinking? You just got up and flipping left her like you did! Hell, I cant believe you were effing alive and didn't f make contact! I F can't Believe you , you dumb FU--"
"That's quite enough, Mao." Kai said, covering her mouth.
He pulled his hand back and Mao mumbled angrily.
"Sorry about that, Haji. Really. We're glad that you're back. All of us."
"Speak for your self." Mao grumbled.
Kai glared at her meaningfully.
"You know what."
"No I don't know what. What?''
The two went on like that for a long time.
"Auntie Saya," Ame said, "Is that REALLY Haji?"
"Yes, it is." Saya said, leading the twins to Haji. "Haji, these are my nieces, Ame, and Yuki."
The twins cautiously approached the tall, handsome Chevalier.
He crouched down to the twins. "Hey." He held out a hand to each of them.
Ame blushed shyly and took his hand and Yuki beamed and vigorously shook his hand.
Saya smiled as Haji scooped up the twins effortlessly and slung them each over his shoulder. The two laughed and giggled uncontrollably.
"You're really great with kids." Saya commented when he put the twins down.
"Haji, may I speak with you for a moment?" Kai asked.
"Of course." Haji responded.
He stood up and followed Kai out of the room.
"Auntie Saya, Where do ya think Kai and Haji are going?" Yuki asked.
"I don't know." Saya replied. Saya hugged the twins tightly "I missed you. A lot."
"We missed you too," Yuki said.
"Yeah, Auntie Saya." Ame said.
"Hey, Saya," Mao said, "How'd you get those scars on your arm?"
"Huh?" Saya looked at her arm.
"Why? Why did you have to leave me?" She screamed, dragging the stone down her arm, "Why? Why? Why? How could you leave me this way? How could you when I need you the most? Why did you have to be such a fool?" …
She raised the stone and dug it deep into her skin, creating an enormous gash down her arm. "I WAS NOT MEANT TO LIVE! I WAS MEANT TO DIE THERE ALONG SIDE OF YOU!" She forced down the stone and punctured her chest repeatedly. "WHY WON'T I DIE?! THERE'S NOT ANY REASON FOR ME TO GO ON LIVING!"
"It was… It was nothing…." Saya whispered, running her fingers over the little pink scars.
"It doesn't look like nothing. What Happened?"
"I told you , it's nothing, Mao."
Mao glared at Saya and turned away. "Hmph."
Just then, the door opened. Kai and Haji walked into the room. Kai whispered something to Mao, who instantly light up.
"OOOOOOOooooooo!!" She cried. "THAT'S SOOOOOOOO COOL!! EEEEEEEEEEP! SO COOL SO COOL SO COOL! SOCOOLSOCOOLSOCOOL!" She grabbed the twins and began to pull them away. "Come on you two. Let's go to the park. Come on. EEEEEEEEP!!"
"Awwww, Mao!" Ame whined.
"I don't WANT to go to the park!" Yuki complained. "I want to stay with Auntie Saya!"
"Auntie Saya will be out in a while, but you need to give he an Haji some alone time. Let's go."
"AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWWW!" The twins cried.
"Let's go. Let's go. Let's Go!" Mao dragged the twins and Kai out of the room.
"Ummmm." Saya said awkwardly. "What just happened?"
"I am not entirely sure." Haji replied, taking her hand. "Saya, I would like to ask you something."
"Sure. Go for it."
HajI hesitated before taking both of her hands in his own. He got down on one knee.\
Saya drew in a sharp breath.
"Saya, I love you. I love you so much."
" I want to see you smile…. Once more like when we first met. I have been serving you, and was glad to return to you, even if I had to give everything up. When I first awakened after becoming your Chevalier, the first thing you showed me were your tears. And, driven by rage, you chose to take up arms and fight. However, when I found you in Okinawa, you were wrapped in happiness. There was the smile I could not give you, even if I had wished for it. But Kai has told me that I can give you a smile that no other can, and if you will let me, I would like to give you that smile once again. I have always loved you. Saya, I want to be able to love you for so much longer. I swear that I will love and protect you forever more, even if you refuse me. Saya, will you marry me?"
Silence fell upon them
Tears poured from Saya's eyes.
"Saya?" Haji whispered. "Saya, are you alright? I'm sorry. I shouldn't have asked. I am truly sorry. Please forgive me."
Suddenly, she laughed. "HajI, you idiot."
He cringed, realizing his mistake. "Please forgive me, Saya."
"You are an idiot, Haji! I'm not crying out of sadness, Haji! I'm crying out of joy! Of course I'll marry you! Yes! Yes! The answer is yes! Yes….Yes….Yes…." Saya collapsed in Haji's arms. "I love you so much, Haji. I love you! I've always loved you! I love you now, I'll love you forever!" She pulled him down and pressed her lips to his.
"Awwwwww…." someone cooed.
Saya turned and glared in their general direction.
"Shut up, Mao." Kai said.
"Haji," Saya whispered, "I just have one request."
"Anything. Whatever you wish."
"I want you to relinquish the title of chevalier. I want us to be on equil ground from here on out. No more Chevalier and Queen. Just you…and me….That is my final wish."
There was a long imesurable moment.
"If that is your wish, Saya."
"Thank you, HajI…For everything."
Three months later, after the wedding.
Saya held Haji's hand as they walked up the sidewalk to their new home. HajI scooped her up into his arms and carried her through the open door.
"welcome home, Saya."
"Welcome home, Haji."
He put her down on the black loveseat, and bent down before her.
Saya leaned down and kissed him deeply, momentarily stunning him.
"I love you," She whispered.
"As I love you." He replied.
He wrapped his arms gently around his new wife and breathed in her sweet scent.
It's finally her turn, HajI thought, It is her turn at a happy life. After so many years of trying to keep others happy, it is finally her turn. She can finally live her life peacefuly. No more Diva, no more Chiroptora, no more battle, just happiness. I know she said that we should be equils, but, I still can't help myself. Old habbits die hard. I have to keep her happy.
"HajI," Saya said, breaking his trance, "What were you thinking about?"
"Oh," He replied, "I was just thinking that this is the way it should have always been. It's finally your turn to be happy."
"Ours." She corrected. 'It's our turn to be happy, not mine. You suffered just as much as me, probably even more. So this is not just my second chance, but it's yours too."
He couldn't help but to smile.
"You're right." He pressed a gentle kiss to her forehead. "It's our second chance."
"More tan that, it's our new beginning. The start to a new life. A life of peace and happiness, harmony and joy."
"A new life."
"A New beginning."
