Okay, folks, here I am again! With an extension on my story "Fairytale of an Injured Maiden". I hope you guys enjoy this. It'll be fluffy. You have been warned.
Fairytale of an Injured Maiden
"I can't believe that. After all that drama and pain you went through, all you broke was your ankle," I sighed, taking a can of coke out of the fridge.
"I already said I'm sorry that I scared you all, so can you stop harassing me over that?" Rin replied, gingerly propping up her ankle on a cushion. "I still can't believe we won't get to go skating for at least six weeks."
"Actually, it can take up to seven months before you can do physical activities like that," I told her. "The doctor said so."
"Screw the doctor. If it takes six weeks, it takes six weeks. End of." I watched her as she drank her own coke in an annoyed manner. It was like she barely even remembered the conversation we'd had at the hospital those two weeks ago. It wasn't fair. After I'd finally won her heart, too.
"And what about your back?" I asked her. "Does it hurt still?""God, will you give it a rest?" she snapped. "It's fine. Why are you fussing about me so much?"
"What do you mean, why?" I demanded. "After all that happened at the hospital…"
"What do you mean?"
"You're saying you don't remember a single thing about when you were in hospital that first day?" I asked her, feeling a sinking feeling of disappointment in my gut.
"Of course not. They said I had amnesia, didn't they? So naturally, I don't remember anything."
"Anything at all?"
"Well, I remember flying over the handlebars, then it's all blank. I know you came to visit me, though." She looked over at me suspiciously. "I didn't… say anything weird, did I?"
"U-Um, not really, no…" I stared down at my can, feeling empty. So she really didn't remember a thing. This was bad. After we'd promised to be together and everything. Argh.
"Hey, Len. What… happened that day? I want to know."
"U-Um… Lets see… Well, you crashed into a building when you flew over the handlebars of your bike, and you were taken away to hospital. I came to find you, and you said that… that you were sorry you missed our skating, and wanted to go again."
"I… I said that?" she said carefully.
"And? What about it?" I snapped. She turned to look at me.
"Nothing. What's your problem?" she replied, glaring at me.
"And then," I said, choosing to ignore her, "we started talking about how happy some of our memories were as children. And you… made me promise something."
"Really? What?" I took a deep breath.
"Um, well, the thing is… ahh! I can't say it!" I clenched my fists, feeling like an idiot. She looked alarmed now.
"What? Did I say something about your haircut?" she asked, panicking slightly.
"N-No! Why would you?" She kept her mouth shut.
"U-Uh, lets see… um, well, you made me promise that… um… you asked if… ARGH! YOU ASKED IF I WOULD LOVE YOU EVEN IF YOU WOULDN'T BE OKAY! YOU GOT THAT!"
"You said," I mumbled, rubbing the bridge of my nose awkwardly, "you said 'Will you love me no matter what?' to me. And I… said yes."
She stared at me for a few seconds, her face flushing.
"O-Oh." She looked down. Then she whispered,
"I'm sorry for not remembering it."
"Sorry?" I peered at her. "Am I hearing things? Is Rin, the most stubborn girl in the world, saying she's sorry?"
"What? You said so yourself that I apologised before!" she snapped.
"Yeah, but that was different. You had concussion, remember? Oh, wait… you wouldn't."
"Shut up!" she glared at me. "I'm not always like that. Anyway… what I said - back then, I mean… I… absolutely DID mean it!"
I stared at her, feeling my cheeks becoming warm and red.
"Th-Then… C-Can I… kiss you…?" I found myself asking. She looked up, face red.
"U-Uh… yeah…" she squinted as my hand brushed up against her face. Her lips looked so… inviting.
I then leaned in and softly kissed her. I never thought I would be doing this to her, but here I was.
When we broke apart she let a tear slip down her cheek.
"I-I… I never thought that this would happen!" she giggled, her eyes over-flowing with tears. "I've… I've always liked you, Len, and this seems so surreal. I never thought today would happen…"
"And I never thought when it happened you'd burst into tears," I joked, wiping away the trails of tears on her cheeks.
"Well, I'm happy!" she sniffed. "I have a boyfriend now! I can tease Miku about it!"
"Miku?" I asked. "Isn't she your friend?" She shook her head dismissively.
"Nah, Miku? Kamui made us sit together, because she wouldn't stop talking to her own friends. It was a relief that she didn't strike up conversation too much in class, but she kept dragging me around everywhere. To all these parties and stuff. It was so humiliating. She even made me dress up all frilly and stuff." She shuddered.
"You aren't friends then?" I asked, breathing a sigh of relief.
"Of course not. She's so annoying."
"But what about Kamui? I thought you were all over him?"
"Heh, really? He got this new puppy last week, and it's so cute! Kamui himself is just boring." She laughed at my expression. "You can be so dumb."
"I-It's just common sense to feel like that!" I argued. "I mean, it's not like you gave me any hints!"
"That would be stupid. Playing hard to get is what I'm best at." Her face grew serious. "But Len, trust me. I've never been attracted to Kamui, and I never will be. Okay?"
"O-Okay," I agreed, feeling like a huge weight had been lifted off my shoulders. She grabbed my shirt collar.
"So, Len. The first time was a bit awkward, wasn't it? But now you're relaxed…" she grinned at me deviously. "How good at kissing are you?"
Sorry it's a lot shorter than the previous chapter, but I was a bit stuck to finish this. So… yes! Thank you for reading and reviewing the last chapter, and please give me feedback for what I can improve in the future! :D
