AN: So last chapter. So weird. Oh maaan now I'm getting emotional. Nah not really. Anyway I love this chapter and no not because it's the last one but because I described something in detail and it turned out great. And no I didn't mean it as my first try at describing something but it's my personal favorite. Can you guess or maybe it's to easy.

Chapter seven

I was sleeping probably when I heard my brother's voice.

'Shh do you want to wake him? I would love to see him open his eyes but still.' He said. Than I heard teacher's voice.

'Oh hush. It's not like I'm going to wake him. Beside he's been out for a week and I didn't even know where he was. I'm still mad about that by the way.' She said.

'What?' I heard my own voice for the first time. They both asked me the same question.

'You're awake?' Lucky they didn't shout. I slowly opened my eyes. I was in a hospital obviously and alive unfortunately. I wanted to die yet I was alive. Funny thing how the opposite happens 90% of the time. But what surprised me was that brother was here with me. I wouldn't have believed it if I didn't see it with my own eyes.

'What were you thinking?' They interrupted my thoughts yet again and this time they were really close to shouting.

'I don't know how about stopping you from going through with your plan. Atoning for my sins. What are you doing here teacher?' he asked. He couldn't ask his brother.

'Sakisaka-san informed me about an hour ago. He was here with you for an entire week. I hear he took time off from work.' She said.

'Sensei could you leave me alone with Sakisaka-san for a while?' I ask her. I sent her an apologetic look and she nodded. After she left the room I asked aniki in an uncertain voice.

'Why am I alive?' I should have died back there.'

'I can't let my little brother die in front of me now can I? What kind of older brother would do that?' he asked. Tears started slid down my cheek.

'Aniki.' Was what I said before unconsciousness claimed me again.

When I woke up hours later I saw aniki sitting in a chair beside my bed. He was sleeping and his hand was clutching mine. He was talking in his sleep. At first it seemed like an incomprehensible jumble of words but when I actually paid attention I could understand what he was talking about and my heart almost broke.

'I'm sorry little brother, I'm sorry Ainosuke.' He said over and over. It hurts me so much to know that he is suffering. I felt something wet slide down my cheeks and I realized I was crying. If only brother knew that no matter what he did it wouldn't matter. Even if he were a coldblooded killer it wouldn't matter because he would still be my brother.

My thoughts were interrupted when I felt something moist against my hand. I realized my brother whom I thought was incapable of feeling was actually hiding behind a mask all this time. Before I couldn't really believe him, but know… Then everything came crashing down. All the repressed feelings, the guilt, sorrow, pain, anguish, everything just came down. I turned my face, screamed into the pillow and cried. I choked on sobs trying to make as little noise as possible as to not wake my brother. It was in vain through for I felt a hand gently lifting my face, making me turn to him. He looked at me, sorrow in his eyes as he pulled me into a hug. I broke down then and there.

Brother comforted me telling me everything will be okay. I was vaguely aware of the fact that brother was also crying. When there were no more tears left to cry I looked up. I didn't know how long I was crying or how long I was up but when I looked out the window I saw that the sun was rising. From my room you could see the sun rising from behind a building, reflecting in the river. It was a magnificent image of buildings painted in orange, sunlight reflecting from windows, the rays of sunlight penetrating the spaciously spread clouds.

It was then I vowed I would start anew. A new life with my brother whom I won't let slip from my reach again. We will be a family again and I will do whatever I can protect our happiness.

AN: So did you like it. Do you get why I love it. It's a great chapter if I do say so myself. Oh and did you like the picture/moment I described. Hope you did.

Anyway as I said this is/was the last chapter but I don't think I'll write a sequel because I feel the story is finished. If you'd like I'll write a sequel but if so I really could use ideas.
