Chapter Two: Rebirth of a second chance

There's apart of me that always wanted to know why things happen. Why bad things happen to good people, or how situations turned out so wrong. Or even how the days just continued on no matter how terrible this world is. Was it by chance of Life, Will, or God? Or maybe even the Devil. I always wanted to know, because it was something I couldn't possibly understand. But now that I'm here and alive with you, I feel no need to know why. And that part of me knows nothing of the happiness you gave me…

The sun rays shined in and everything around me seem so-. What's the word again… peaceful? Warm? No, perfect. That's it perfect, well in my eyes that's how it seemed. As I sat there on the bed that wasn't mine, and smelt of sweets. I felt the disturbing sensation of peace, and feeling like this. I knew I never wanted to leave. Before I became the new me, I would probably have left. Leave nothing, but a memory of me behind. But now as I place my head down on to the pillow, how could I possibly thing of leaving.

"Ren…"

Suddenly my thoughts are fade way by the voice I knew, and somehow feared. He walks in to the room with a sinister smile on his face.

"Yes Rai…"

A smile crosses my face, as my tone echoed the room with irritation. I lift my head, and suddenly felt the warmth of the shackles around my wrists and ankles.

"Would you like anything to eat since its morning now?"

I began to have a twitch, with the smile I force on myself to do in front of him! I lift the shackles, and asked him a question I knew the answer to.

"Well first could you unlock these, I really don't like being tide up."

I continued to smile in this so perfect situation. Rai suddenly lens in front of me with a smile of delight.

"No"

"Why you…"

I whispered in a low annoyed tone. My smile slowly fades away.

"Well if I unlock them you might try to leave...? Right…?"

My smile is gone, as he turns away from me to exit the room.

"So I'm guessing yes to breakfast?"

He closes the door as jump out of the bed to yell at him. But to only suddenly fall on to the floor. I didn't get the chance to yell at him as I wanted. So I then decided to sit back on to the bed, looking miserable as ever. In a fix I don't know how this really happened. And so I thought to my self with my arms crossed, remembering what happened last night.

"Let's see I was telling him to let me go…"

"Let me go please... Rai..."

"And then he- he…"

I suddenly blush as the fact that I was kissed by Rai.

"Grr. Rai why'd you have to ruin my manhood"?

I glanced outside and then back at the door. I continued to talk to myself reviewing the past events, which lead me chained up.

"…I pulled away from him feeling to shock that some guy kissed me. And then I stood up, and was about to leave. That is until he pulled me back again."

I lend against the wall, and gazed upon the shackles around my wrist.

"And then he… I mean Rai gave me a face of not only regret, but a wanting desire for me to stay…"

Suddenly I felt a little bit sorry for Rai, and then I began to wonder what it felt for him to remember. To remember everything that happened in our pasted lives. I glanced once again at the door, and suddenly heard a laugh. I glared with the feeling of anger and slightly irritated.

"Humph! Forget it! I don't feel sorry for him anymore! I could care less about how he-"

I stopped myself before I could say anything else that I might regret. I chocked back some saliva, and hoped that Rai wouldn't pop in. But with my bad luck I can't even hope. I turned away from the door and listened to the footsteps come towards me.

"Rai… I'm going to ask again could you unlock-"

I was about to finish asking a question I asked before, but to only suddenly be stopped by a sound.

"Meow"

I quickly turned to see the animal I knew, but with the look of surprise. And there on the floor sat a little kitten gaze up at me. I lend down to take a better look at the orange kitten. I place my head down on the edge of the bed, as I stared in to the eyes of a something so small.

"I bet your trapped here to, huh kitty?"

"Meow"

I reached out to pick up the small animal, which I found to be a little bit cute. I sat back up again, as I held the kitten in my arms. And as if the animal were human I start talking to it.

"So how long have you been trapped here? Me I've been here for-"

I tried to count in my head of how long, and thought it must have been 2 days.

"I think I have been here for… two days"

"Meow"

Suddenly and unexpected I hear Rai's voice come from the opened door. Putting him self in to the conversation.

"No, your one day off it's been three.

I turn to look at him with the kitten remaining in my arms. He leaded against the door frame making him self looking a little bit cool. I gave him a glare and turned away.

"I'm not talking to you!"

I pout, and started petting gentle on the kittens head. Rai comes and sits down next to me, suddenly sighing to him self.

"Ren, I don't understand why your mad but-"

Yeah right it's obvious why I'm mad, it's because you locked me up!

I continued to look away from him, and listened to him in this calm tone that I loved.

"But I don't think you understand how much I've been waiting for you."

Once his words reached my ears I started to feel a little bit of pain and a feeling to hold Rai close to me. I didn't want to understand the pain Rai was talking about, because I enjoyed my life I have now. I never expected to remember my past life. I never expected to be here once again with Rai. I never expected anything not ever loving… him.

"Ren, if it's alright could I just-"

Suddenly I could feel his head on my shoulder, as he gently closed his eyes. The kitten jumped out of my hands and walked out of the room.

"…rest a little…"

And just like that he was fast asleep. I didn't know how to react because it was Rai. But even so I let him sleep peacefully, thinking and wondering about what he said. And I tried to understand how someone could wait, and look for someone that they couldn't possible see in a world like this. I also wondered how long he had to look for me. How long he had to look, and how long he knew about the past. I wondered and thought that maybe, just maybe if this was the reason why time seemed to stop around me. And why it has continued. I glanced at Rai who resting peacefully on my shoulder.

"Maybe this is what they call destiny…"

I looked away and out the window, and then looked back at Rai. And as I looked at him I could see the keys around his neck. In that moment I started to feel the urge to grab them, and hit the road. I thought to myself I could to that, but as I looked at him I could feel the guilt overcoming me. I tired to ignore the guilt, and reached out to grab them. But for some reason I couldn't, and no matter how I wanted to I couldn't.

"Dammit"!

I looked away and wondered what I should do.

Mother must be worried; I should get going, but- Rai

And as the guilt continued to grow, I reached out and grabbed the keys to my freedom.

Sorry about this Rai…

And then suddenly as if everything was a set up, Rai grabs my hand.

"And where do you think you were going?"

A smile appears on his face, and for some reason I knew that this person wasn't Rai.

"Rai…?"

He smiles a little bit more giving me a sudden chill. I could feel the pressure of Rai's hand on my wrist getting tighter.

"Ow, Rai you're hurting me"

"And what makes you think that I don't…?"

Suddenly I could feel time around me fading away, and slowly stopping.

I don't think this person is Rai anymore… but how?

I started to struggle to break free from his grasp. But once I tried he pushes me back on to the bed, suddenly pinning me down.

"Rai…?"

"Whose Rai you keep talking about? He sounds like someone I use to know."

Suddenly I could feel his lips on mine. As he gave me a kiss that was rough, and nothing like Rai's kiss. I pull away telling him to let me go. But he refused to, and grinned evilly with delight.

"Well who ever he is let's have this our little secret. And just so you don't get me confused with that half wit. My name is Azazeal.

Suddenly I could feel his hand rising up my shirt, making me calling out for help. I didn't understand what was happening, but that I need to break free or something was going to happen that be my worst nightmare. And in my efforts I couldn't no matter how much I tried he was just too strong. I could feel his hand un-buttoning my jeans, and in that moment I yelled out Rai's name hoping, so desperately hoping he would hear me.

"RAI"!
