DISCLAIMER: I DON'T OWN THE SHOW OR THE SONG BUT I WISH I HAD BOTH.
I Will Follow You
As Sayaka rounded the corner she spotted Rei's apartment. It was a medium sized building that didn't look too old or too new. It was about three stories tall and an off white color. She approached the large green door and rang a buzzer with Rei's last name next to it.
After a minute of waiting the voice of an older woman came out of the speaker next to the button. "Yes?" was all the woman that Sayaka now believed to be Rei's mother said. "Hello, I am one of Re's friend from school. She invited me over." Sayaka stated to the woman. "Very well" was the curt reply she got back before the door buzzed, signaling that it had been unlocked so the visitor could enter.
Sayaka climbed two flights of stairs that led to the second floor, glad she remembered to write her apartment number own before she left school. She walked until she reached her desired destination in front of room 420(yay! Marley Fest is in town!!). She knocked lightly, not wanting to disturb the eerily silent hall. The sound of swift, light foot steps could be heard as someone came to the door.
The woman that had spoke to Sayaka earlier was now standing in front of her. She wore a dark blue shirt that could be considered casual or formal, and a pair of black slacks. Sayaka figured that she may have gotten back from work maybe an hour ago and didn't have time to change yet. Her hair was the same shade of brown as Rei's, but her eyes didn't hold the same reddish tint that her daughters did.
"Rei is in her room, down the hall, second on the right." she sad with out introducing her self. Sayaka simply nodded and head in the direction that the older woman pointed. As she neared the room she heard a ticking noise that was constant. It was slightly annoying and seemed to fill her entire being with hate for the thing making that dreadful sound(if you can't tell, I HATE metronomes… evil basterds).
She found that the awful noise was coming from Rei's room and wanted to rush in and crush it immediately. But then she heard the sound of music starting to play. The melody was sad, as if predicting a terrible future, but also hopeful of what was going to happen. Then she heard a familiar voice start to sing .
Love of mine, someday you will die. But I'll be close behind. I'll follow you into the dark.
No blinding light, or tunnels to gates of white. Just our hands clasped so tight, waiting for the hint of a spark. If heaven and hell decide that they both are satisfied, illuminate the No's on their vacancy signs. If there's no one beside you when your soul embarks, then I will follow you into the dark.
Sayaka was shocked. Rei's voice was simply amazing, almost angelic. It filled the hallway as well as her heart. She nearly moved to tears by just the first verse alone. Rei's voice held so much emotion that it almost had it's own shape, a body which to show it through movement
In Catholic school, as vicious as Roman rule, I got my knuckles bruised by a lady in black. And I held my tongue as she told me "son, fear is the heart of love" so I never went back. If heaven and hell deicide that they both are satisfied, illuminate the No's on their vacancy signs. If there's no one beside you when your soul embarks, then I will follow you into the dark.
Sayaka felt the depth of these words and really was moved to tears. They started to flow lightly, leaving only thin, glistening lines as evidence that they were even there. Sayaka had a smile on her face though and it was not one that she often put on. It was a true smile that warmed her heart and embraced her soul.
You and me have seen everything to see. From Bangkok to Calgary. And the soles of our shoes are all worn down. The time for sleep is now, but it's nothing to cry about cause we'll hold each other still. In the blackest of rooms. If heaven and hell deicide that they both are satisfied, illuminate the No's on their vacancy signs. If there's no one beside you when your soul embarks, I will follow you into the dark. Yes, I will fallow you into the dark.
As the last cord rang out Sayaka wiped her eyes and prepared to knock on Rei's door, hoping that the Rei was thinking of her while she was singing.
OK SO IT'S SHORT, BUT STILL GOOD… RIGHT? WHATEVER. ANYWAYZ IF YOU ARE READING THIS THEN YOU BETTER REVIEW OR I WON'T MAKE THE NEXT CHAPTER. IM EVIL LIKE THAT.
