Green Hornet FanFic- Ep. 43
Kato took his last look at the garage before he switched off the lights and headed back to his apartment.
Three days flew by faster than he could say Detroit. Pretty soon, he was all packed up and at the airport. His flight was early in the morning so no one came to accompany him. He had already said his good- byes to Lenore and Britt. Kato took out his phone and dialed Hebe's number. He just wanted to hear her voice again.
The call went to voicemail. Kato sighed and shoved the phone back into his pocket. In about an hour he would be onboard to Detroit.
From afar, he saw a person running towards his direction. The person was running in about 5 inch heels. He knew it was Hebe, since she could run in 6 inches like they were tennis shoes.
By the times she got to him she was gasping frantically for breath. "O-oh great I'm… not late" she wheezed.
Kato chuckled as tucked a strand of hair behind her ear. He was so happy to see her. "I thought you weren't coming"
"I wanted to say good bye... again." She looked up at him. Kato pressed his forehead against hers, their lips inches away. There was hardly anyone at the gate so he didn't mind giving her a little PDA. He stared back at her with his twinkly eyes and his signature tilted smile.
"I told myself that this was best for you and I want you to go, but I can't help but be selfish." Hebe wrapped her arms around his neck.
Kato continued to look at her with soft kind eyes.
Hebe pouted. "don't look at me like that! You're gonna make me…" Hebe felt a tear trickle down her cheek. She quickly wiped it away so Kato would see it.
Kato hugged her. Hebe started to sob in his arms "don't cry, love." He whispered in Chinese. He kissed her forehead and on her nose. Kato cooed her until she was able to settle down. Hebe leaned on his chest and listened to his heartbeat. "You wanna know something?" Kato asked.
Hebe wiped her eyes and waited for him to go on.
Kato's eyes met hers. "you're the most beautiful girl I've ever met, both inside and out. To be honest, I sorta liked you ever since I lived at your parent's house. "Kato paused to wipe that stray tear running down her cheek. "Ever since I started dating you… my life changed. And I realized that I want to spend the rest of my life with you." Kato pulled away from the embrace. He reached into his pocket and pulled out a small box.
Kato chuckled shyly "I've wanted to give you this but I know that I want to give it to you now."
Kato took a deep breath and got down on his knees. He opened the small box and inside was a simple ring, but to Hebe it was the most beautiful thing she had ever seen.
"Hebe, will you marry me?" Kato proposed.
Hebe stood there dumbstruck. She wasn't expecting it at all. Her lips trembled but no words came out. This was every girl's dream moment, when a guy kneels down in front of them and proposes. Kato was a great guy, her first serious boyfriend. This was the most important decision of her life. She thought of all the flaws about him: he loved to argue, perverted at times, a bit arrogant at times, and deathly afraid of water. But she also thought of the reasons why she loved him. How he always made her laugh, how much he cared about her, and how being with him makes the world seem perfect. Hebe knew that she had found her knight in shining armor.
"Hebe?" Kato looked worried. He was still on his knees holding the ring with his shaking hands.
Hebe blushed and smiled. "yes, I'll marry you."
Kato let out a sigh of relief. He was overwhelmed with joy. Kato gently took her left hand and slipped the ring onto her ring finger. He got up and kissed her.
Kato's kiss was so tender and comforting; it was so familiar to Hebe. She knew that she also wanted to live the rest of her life with him that was how much she loved him.
"alright me flight's here." Kato whispered in her ear.
Hebe sniffled and let go reluctantly.
Kato gave her a playful pat on the head and one last peck on the lips. "I'll call when I get there."
Hebe nodded. "good luck, babe."
"stay far away from other guys" Kato joked
"I will, I'm engaged remember?" Hebe held up her left hand with the ring on her fourth finger.
He chuckled "I love you." Kato said quietly as he turned to leave.
"love you." Hebe said but Kato had already left.
Hebe stood there alone at the airport. Her lightly touched the ring on her finger and smiled to herself. Kato was going to be the perfect husband. Hebe was confident that she and Kato were able to conquer anything together, even if they were half a country away.
