A week later, Alice was back at the arcade playing DDR with all of her friends. In fact, she couldn't help but laugh at Rage and Yuni fighting over the arcade machine. Poor Emi felt like a shadow in the argument.
"Let go of me, Rage!" Yuni yelled. "I already called dibs!"
"I don't think so, Blondie!"
At the corner of Alice's eye, she noticed Zero walking towards her. She gave him a warm smile. "Hi, Zero."
"Hello, Alice. Are you feeling better?"
"Oh, yes. Much better, thanks to you and your team."
"It's... what I do. I like to heal people, giving them another chance at life."
"You do it really well, Zero. You're really amazing at what you do."
Zero really softened. "That's... probably the nicest thing anyone's ever said to me."
Alice smiled. "You deserved to be told that. After all, you saved my life." While no one was looking, she planted a kiss on Zero's cheek.
When she looked back at the DDR arcade machine, Zero placed his fingers over where Alice kissed him. Her grattitude really warmed his heart some. He secretly smiled after feeling warm inside. After Emi and Yuni were done playing, it was Zero and Alice's turn. Surprisingly, she chose Zero's favorite song: Healing Vision.
