Hey guys! Okay, a really short oneshot Imilshipper this time.

Flint: and it's a songfic!

Quiet, minion. Yep, this is a songfic. It's short, but that's part of the fun! I cut out a lot of the dialogue and put lyrics there, so you can leave that to your good old 'magination.

The song is Chocolate by Snow Patrol. Btw.

Zephyr: Albino Black Dove doesn't own Golden Sun, Snow Patrol, the song, so don't sue!

This could be the very minute

I'm aware I'm alive

All these places feel like home

Alex laughed. It felt weird to laugh again, after so long.

He looked around Imil, and sighed. He felt as at home as ever, but he knew he didn't belong.

But still, he relished the feeling.

With a name I'd never chosen

I can make my first steps

As a child of 25

He took a few steps, enjoying the way his boots crunched snow. He breathed in the fresh, country, frigid air, and slowly let it out again.

The moon was smiling down on him, bathing him in its loving glow.

Such a beautiful moment…he thought. I wish I could stay here forever.

You could have, the little voice in his head reminded him. You blew it, so now you have to pay the price.

He headed toward the little straw house in the corner of town.

He knocked.

The door opened.

And then it slammed shut.

For a moment, he stood there, stunned. You shouldn't be surprised, he told himself. This is what you deserve.

"Mia…" he began.

This is the straw, final straw in the

Roof of my mouth as I lie to you

Just because I'm sorry doesn't mean

I didn't enjoy it at the time

"I…I love you, Mia. You're all I need…"

She turned away, hiding her tears. He wanted to hold her, tell her it would be all right, but he couldn't. He didn't deserve that.

You're the only thing that I love

It scares me more every day

On my knees I think clearer

He couldn't stand. Her fury was more than he could take. He shook his head, barely stifling his own tears.

"Mia, I can't explain what I did…I can't. But just give me a chance…"

Goodness knows I saw it coming

Or at least I'll claim I did

But in truth I'm lost for words

"Mia, I…I…"

He stood up. "Please, Mia, just think about it…I won't bother you again…I'm sorry to wake you."

What have I done? It's too late for that

What have I become? Truth is nothing yet

A simple mistake starts the hardest time

I promise I'll do anything you ask...this time
