Burning

Pain engulfed him

All of a sudden he was in the sterile hallways of a hospital….his hospital unburned.

In his has hand was the hand of a small red-headed boy around 10 years old. He looked up at him with bright hazel eyes.

"Sorry about that the last two times we moved you didn't feel it because you were asleep".

The boy continued "my name is Jonathan Peters I go by Jo. I died at 10 years old from a rare brain cancer my chances of living were a little under 20 percent with chemotherapy but it was fated that I would survive. However, this hospital denied me since I couldn't pay for treatment. I might add it was after your father died YOU were the one who denied me! You barely glanced at my application you pushed it aside as if it was a piece of trash. My mother hung herself after my death",

Kyouya gaped in unbelief "I am so sorry" he said genuinely even though he knew a meager apology wouldn't cut it.

The boy smile "don't apologies to me for I am not Jonathan Don Peters" Kyouya sniffled "WHY! Why are you doing this to me!".

"So you can meet your killer. Move on. Leave this world behind. My job is to shove your flaws in your face make you feel the pain for your sins"

Kyouya was burning with anger

"WHO KILLED ME! WHY CAN'T YOU JUST LET ME LEAVE! MY LIFE WAS PERFECT THERE IS NO WAY THAT COULD JUST BE TAKEN AWAY FROM ME".

"Oh but it can!" Jo's voice turned to a hiss.

"You should feel it! The pain of this young boy's brain rotting away, his heart stopping! You should feel the stifling frog in your throat that Tamaki has everyday fighting back tears! The SECOND you died the best of life left you! However the WORSE of lift remained! DON'T YOU FEEL IT EVERY OUNCE OF PAIN AND DESPAIR YOU EVER CAUSED TRICKLING BACK TO YOU! THAT'S DEATH IT'S COLD AND IT'S DEPRESSING"

All of a sudden Kyouya's pocket watch flew out of his pocket and opened to show Tamaki laying in his bed.

All alone

He was crying.

Alone

Cradling a bottle of empty rum in his arms

Alone!

The scene switched to a man slicking a woman's abdomen open with a pair of scissors in a department store.

He took out a 45 and started to shoot the panicked shoppers.

The pocket watch snapped closed and nestled itself back in Kyouya's pocket.

Kyouya didn't see the killer's face but knew for a fact it was HIS killer.

He hit his knees and started to sob at that moment The Shadow King finally realized everything he has ever gotten was taken away just because a man felt like going on a killing spree.

"I CAN'T BE DEAD IT IS IMPOSSIBLE! THIS ALL JUST ONE DREAM".

The boy voice once again was a snake like hiss "why can't you just accept your death and let me do my job".

Kyouya screamed at the top of his lungs.

He looked at one of the walls and placed all his focus on it.

The wall was breaking to thick cracks were crawling down it.

Just like that he was in his bed room with Tamaki who was sobbing on the bed.

Kyouya gasped depression filling his heart seeing his lover in such a broken state.

He walked over to him and brushed a hand over his cheek.

Tamaki smelled cologne again

Kyouya whispered "don't cry love you know I hate it when you cry. You're supposed to be happy when I can't be".

Tamaki couldn't hear Kyouya or see him but in his drunken state he sensed his presence and could almost hear his exact words in his head he just knew and loved Kyouya that much.

"I'm sorry Kyouya I know you hate it when I cry".

Kyouya felt tears start to sting his eyes "I miss you so much Tamaki".

Tamaki sobbed "I miss you Kyouya!"

Kyouya kissed Tamaki. Tamaki sensing some type of heat and imagining Kyouya kissing him telling him "Surprise! Did you really think I would trust YOU with all the bills?"

Kyouya felt a pulling sensation back into the world of the dead "I love you Tamaki".

Tamaki slowly falling into a drunken slumber about happier times mumbled right as Kyouya was gone.

"I love you too, mommy"
