Izumi and Mero:
A Summer Love Story
My name is Meroko Yui. I'm a shinigami, a grim reaper. My partner is Izumi Lio and I really love him, but he laughs it off.
"Izumi, wait for me," I called out to him. You could hear the sound of the train in the background, a sound that seemed to annoy Izumi to no end. I've always wondered why the sound of the train annoyed him so badly.
"Mero-Chan, I will not wait on a someone as slow as you," Izumi yelled at me. He was always in a hurry when it came to jobs. Today we would be collecting the soul of a girl name Yori.
"Izumi, why are you in a rush?" I asked. "Can't we slow down? We'll get lost and fail our assignment."
Izumi just sped up, completely ignoring me. Izumi was short-tempered, annoying, mean, and the most sadistic of the shinigami.
We found the girl at last. She was poor and dying of starvation. Izumi raised his scythe and did what shinigami do, collect souls, murder.
"Izumi, we need to talk," I said to him when he finally calmed down.
"So? Spit it out before I decide to leave you behind." Izumi said. He stared into my eyes with such a coldness that I wondered if I should say what I wanted to say or not.
"Izumi, I love you!" I had told him this 37 times so far and he has never taken me seriously.
Izumi leaned down and kissed me. It wasn't long but it was sweet, then, without a sound, he flew off.
'I fell for it!' Izumi had done that three times before and I fell for it every time. I chased after Izumi, quickly catching up to him. I grabbed his hand and made him stop.
"Izumi you idiot, I hate you!" I yelled at him tears streaming down my cheeks. I then turned and flew away.
"Mero-Chan!" Izumi called after me but I didn't listen I was so unhappy. He was such an idiot. I was such an idiot, falling for a stupid trick that he had pulled before.
"Mero-Chan, please listen. If you stop falling for those tricks the maybe I'll like you." Izumi said after catching up to me. He grabbed me and pulled me into a tight embrace. "Mero-Chan it'll be okay, I promise."
