This time when I opened my eyes, I didn't feel as much pain. Just aching. My body had gotten a lot more strength back and my eyes wandered around the room til it landed on the black figure by the door. When I realized that it was indeed Snake Eyes I jerked up causing the room to spin and me fall forward into Snake Eyes' arms yet again.
"Thanks" I barely whispered which was returned with the reply of a nod. He sat on the bed next to me and helped me sit up again, holding my arm until I was able to sit up by myself.
I looked up into the black visor that covered the eyes I missed. My fingers slowly made its way up to the edge of his mask by his neck and then I looked at him expectantly for the permission. He didn't react in any way and I continue to slowly pull off his mask. underneath was a smaller mask that covered the lower part of his face, allowing me to see his eyes. I removed the second mask and pulled myself to him, with my arms tightly secured around his neck and my face buried in the crook of his neck. His arms slowly wound itself around the small of my back and he patted it as I began to cry.
"I missed you... So much." I managed to choke out to him and he just hugged me tighter as if to reply. I couldn't believe I was securely in his arms again. I felt like a helpless child that was protected and I missed the strong feeling of security he gave me.
After what felt like an eternity I managed to look up at him and I remembered that he took that vow of silence for our master.
"You know, you can sign. After you left I studied it so I could communicate with you when we met again." I told him while hiccupping from my recent crying. Snake eyes only continued to stare deep in my eyes and study my face. He then raised his hand up and gently placed some fallen hair behind my ear. Slowly stroking my cheek with the back of his hand, he carefully brought my face to his and our lips met for the first time.
