Just One Last Time

Leaving her is like dying. Scrambled thoughts and panic ensure as he realizes that he just wants to see her one last time before he goes, before it's too late. (One-sided IxK, K's POV.)

"And ever has it been that love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation."

- Khalil Gibran

And then there's no air. The world's on fire, my lungs are burning, and I can't breathe. Hot tears come to my eyes and I know I'm choking even though I can't hear it.

I can't breathe.

The realization suddenly hits me and I know that I'm dying. Dying for a lost cause. Dying for Ichigo.

Leaving you is like dying.

I'm drowning in heartbreak because I know that I'm not going to see you again, not in your lifetime.

I'm desperate. I don't want to go, I want to be near you one last time. No, I need to be near you one last time.

I don't want to leave you. I don't want to go back home to my planet. I want to be by your side right now.

It hurts because you think I've given up on you now Ichigo, but that's a foolish idea. I'll never give up on you, Ichigo. You've changed me too much. I don't think that I could ever be the same.

Please, let me breathe just one last time. Just to see Ichigo again. Just to let me kiss her one last time. Just to watch her yell at me. Just to tell her that I love her one more time. I'll do anything to be with her again.

The world's moved from fierce red to an endless, empty shade of black.

If only...

But I can't live without you. You can live without me; I know you can. You'll have Masaya and you'll be happy. You'll live the long and joyful life I want you to live without me.

Thump-thump. Thump-thump, says my sputtering heart.

Silly heart: why beat when you're doing this for the one you love? Why beat when she's better off without you in her life?

But Ichigo, I don't think I can live without you anymore.

Just one last time...


Second fic posted!

If anyone didn't understand this, it's what Kish is thinking after he and his friends leave Earth. And no, he didn't die at the end. Kish, in my opinion, happens to be extremely passionate and dramatic so his analogy of leaving Ichigo is like dying to him. Being unable to breathe and dying is metaphorical to him.

This is in no way my view of what he felt after he left in the manga and anime, but an idea that I just couldn't get out of my head.

Please, please review and hope that you liked it!
