- So yes, I decided to enter Toka-Chii's "That Unique Flair Challenge"
- Originally, I was going to give this story a title related to light, eg. Hikari (Japanese for "light"), Sparkle, Shine... but then I went with "Oh Star" because the Haos Symbol is a Star, and because I looooooove Paramore~ :3
- Now, who better to kick off this collection than the beloved Runo × Shun? ;D
Disclaimer: Bakugan doesn't belong to me, and probably never will... sadly. Instead, it belongs to TMS Entertainment and some other people.
As Runo was preparing herself for bed, she heard a faint tap at her window. She walked over, opened the window and stuck her head outside. A shadow leapt out from the tree and into her room. She was about to scream when she realised who it was.
The said teen who was crouched on the floor straightened up and nodded at her.
"What are you doing here so late at night?" She asked.
"Come on, I want to show you something."
He took her hand and hoisted her into his arms. With a mischievous smile tugging at the corners of his mouth, he coiled his legs and leapt out the window into the air.
Runo screamed, and squeezed her eyes shut. She shrunk closer into Shun's chest, trying to block out the wind whipping against her face.
"Open your eyes, Runo." She heard him say.
She quickly shook her head, her eyes still squeezed tightly.
"Trust me." He murmured, his voice cool and smooth.
She opened her eyes just a crack, and what she saw took her breath away. They were flying; no, Shun was jumping across rooftops and sailing through the air. But they might as well have been flying; before she knew it, he had swept her off her feet and into a dream.
"I… I don't believe it! We're flying!" She exclaimed.
Shun chuckled, and slowed down his pace a little.
"I guess you could say that. But anyway, this isn't what I wanted to show you; there's more."
They soared over moonlit houses and city lights as people shuffled past on the ground. They seemed to look so much smaller from the air.
Soon, they left the comfort of the city and reached the dense depths of the forest. Shun seemed used to traveling through the forest, easily navigating the high branches and leafy shrub.
"Shun, isn't that your house?" Runo asked, noticing the distinct shape of his dojo as it sat in the silvery moonlight.
He said nothing and continued through the forest, stopping at the foot of what was indeed his house.
"What are we doing here?" She asked.
"You'll see." He smirked. "But before I show you, I want you to close your eyes."
She did as she was told, and felt Shun's body leaving the ground, as the wind whipped through her hair. When he finally let her stand on her own again, his arm was still wrapped around her waist.
"Alright, you can open your eyes now Runo."
She opened her eyes, and was struck with the beautiful landscape that lay before her. It was a view of moonlit hills; of emerald green forests and a star-studded sky.
"Wow… this is just beautiful…" She breathed. She was standing atop Shun's roof, gazing at the surrounding forest in the beauty of night.
"Why don't you sit down a while? I don't think you're in any hurry to get back."
Runo took a seat on the roof, as he seated himself next to her. They sat in silence, admiring the view before them.
"So… do you like it, Runo?"
"I love it." She smiled. "This is really nice, Shun. Thanks for showing me."
"No problem." He smiled at her.
"But you know what?"
"I really liked flying. Do you mind if we…?"
Shun chuckled, his golden eyes light with excitement.
"I thought you would never ask."
With that he hoisted her into his arms, and Runo was swept away into her magical dream once again.
- This collection is only going to be very small; probably five stories / chapters long. Sorry, but I found there's only so many people Runo can be paired with ;)
- Sit tight, and see what other pairings I have in store for Runo... I mean, this collection :D
