Thoughts swirled through my head as I laid there on Ayano's lap. I never fell asleep, but I could tell that she had. I lifted my head off her lap to see her sleeping face. It was tranquil and relaxed; she almost looked lifeless. That fact would have worried me if it wasn't for the wind spirits telling me otherwise. I could also see the rise and fall off her chest from her deep breathing.
Protectiveness is a trait I have acquired ever since I lost my last partner. I lost her to what was supposed to be a simple mission. All we had to do was steak-out at a park, where there was said to be illegal drug activity. My partner, Misa, was severely injured that day. She got shot in the knee-cap, and that shot temporarily immobilized her. I haven't seen her since then, but I've been told that she's doing well and is up and walking again.
Now that I think about it, Ayano surprisingly looks a lot like her… like Misa.
I looked out the window and noticed that we were pulling into the driveway of the villa, so I gently shook Ayano awake.
Recently, I have been having dreams about my twin sister. I was actually having a rather pleasant one at the moment. She and I were sitting in a tree that had taken root in the front of our home. We were younger - around ten or eleven years young. The sun was starting to set and the orange haze was creating a calming atmosphere. A gentle breeze blew through the tree's leaves and sent some spiraling to the ground.
My sister and I were identical, that is if it wasn't for our hair and eye color. Her hair and eyes were a beautiful silver-y color as opposed to mine that were a fire-y red. We had common interests, and that included a relaxing rest after a long day of hard work. So here we are, watching the sun set.
Out of nowhere the image started to fade and I was brought back to the real world. I awoke to Kazuma gently shaking me and saying that we had arrived.
"Gomen, Kazuma. I was supposed to wake you." I apologized as I rubbed the sleep from my eyes.
Kazuma just stared out the window with a thoughtful look upon his face.
'I wonder what he's thinking.'
The two of then stepped out of the limo and went around it to collect their luggage. The wheels of their suitcases glided smoothly across the evenly paved driveway. When they made it to the stairs Kazuma used his wind to carry their luggage to the top.
Ayano turned to look at him surprise written all over her face.
"What? I was just helping a little. Besides, a beautiful girl, such as yourself, shouldn't be carrying her own bags."He said with a smirk.
Blush crept across Ayano's cheeks and she looked away so Kazuma couldn't see. "Thank you, but flattery won't get you anywhere. I'm not an easy girl to get."
His smirk grew and she couldn't help but to smile and roll her eyes.
They walked into the villa and stopped in their tracks; they were totally and utterly shocked.
IT. WAS. AMAZING.
