Rainy Night

Chapter 6

By Castianna

Seto talked with me for another hour, but when he noticed that my eyes were starting to close he kissed me lightly on my forehead and bid me good night. I smiled at him then he turned to leave, I closed my eyes and images flashed before them...

"Good night Darling." Seto kissed her on the forehead. "You get a good sleep tonight because you need to beat this cold."

Anzu looked up at him and sniffed. "This stupid runny nose is going to annoy me." She grumbled. Then sneezed.

Seto jumped back, He didnt need to get sick too. He smiled at her. "I will bring Nurse Mokuba by tomorrow and he will enjoy taking care of you."

"So in otherwords get my sleep tonight, because tomorrow i wont get any?" Anzu tried to laugh, but it turned into a coughing fit.

"I'll even send him with everything medicine wise to get you back up on your feet in no time...all the good drugs lots of money can buy." He squeezed her hand one last time then walked to the door. "I have to go now, Call me though if you need anything tonight." And with that he walked out the door.

Anzu sneezed again.

"Get some sleep!" He shouted from her front door then she heard it shut behind him.

I must have cried out when the memory started because when I came to Seto was standing beside me looking worried.

"Did you remember something again?" He asked. Concern showing on his face.

I nodded, "Yes..." Then I laughed, decideing to tease him a little... "You are afraid of illness arent you? So you leave me to your little brothers mercy whenever I get sick."

"Yes, Illness is weakness." He said matter of factly. "And I was hopeing that after a few sessions of Mokuba's nurseing methods you would be to affraid to get sick...But you seemed to have a bad cold that year that lasted months... Just when you started to get better then all of a sudden you were right back at square one again. It got so bad that we eventually had to bring you to the hospital...The illness had made you so weak." Seto looked as if he was lost in the past.

"When was that?" I asked.

"About six months ago now. You havent been sick since. The doctors said that your common cold had mutated into a very bad chest infection. And you were lucky they got to it when they did. If you had stubbornly refused to see a doctor again it may have been to late." Seto said.

I thought on everything he said, it sounded like I was a pretty stubborn person. I looked up at Seto. "It sounds like we have a very close relationship Seto."

"Yes, We do." He said and kissed me chastly on the lips. "Now get some sleep. I will be picking you up in the morning." Then he turned and left.

I watched him leave, thinking about everything I had rememberd and everything he told me. Then the nurse came in and turned off my light for me. I drifted into sleep... I dreamed... memories coming back to haunt me...
