Ryuuta: Hey guys! This'll be my debut fanfic since Inorizushi kinda pushed me to write this as a response to LordLenne's story "Recovery" So uhh yeah. Hope you enjoy it.
Now before you go and start saying "You stole this from LordLenne,blahblahblah.", Let me give you some background to this story.
This story is partly based on real events that happened between me, Ryuuka, Inori and LordLenne.
The story "Recovery" is based also based on these events, just with add-ons that Lenne added in. But, I asked for permission to write this story and was told yes, so I wrote this.
~This story is in Ness's perspective.
"Leon, what happened to Lucas?"
"Leon, Answer me!"
"Go to him. He needs you."
Startled by Leon's reaction, I ran downstairs to check on Lucas. He was in a corner balled up, screaming, crying.
I knew something was wrong.
Ninten and Claus were already by his side trying to comfort him. I walked up to Lucas and saw everyone's tear-soaked faces. We could all feel Lucas's pain, we just didn't know what was causing it.
"N-Ness... I-It hurts..."
What? What hurts?
"Lucas, calm down, everything's going to be alright."
30 Minutes Later
We managed to calm Lucas down; However, he still didn't look well so I decided not to risk asking questions. I ran back upstairs to check on Leon.
I walked into the guest room where Leon was residing.
He was looking outside the window, depressed.
"Leon, What's wrong?"
He turned around.
"Is he alright?"
"Of course he is."
He had a sound of relief in his voice but still wore a worried face.
"Leon, what happened?"
He cringed at the words. I could tell he didn't want to say anything.
"Leon, tell me. I promise, no matter what you say, I won't be angry at you."
He hesitated and began to speak.
"...I caused it."
"I made Lucas that way."
"What do you mean?"
"I hurt him, I didn't know what I was doing, I know I should've stopped but I just didn't!"
"Leon, slow down. Tell me what happened."
He told me everything. How Lucas swept himself into a fantasy land. Of course, we knew about this already, but we didn't know the main reason that was causing it.
"Ness. He loves you and you aren't showing love back."
I felt guilty. I felt that it was my fault.
I began to tear up.
"Ness. Ness, don't cry."
"It's my fault though."
"No it isn't."
"Look, here's what I want you to do. Go back to him and tell him that you love him."
I began to get up but Leon signaled me to sit back down.
"Just so you know. Once you say it, you will have to take responsibility for everything alright?"
I was worried by his tone. He sounded like something bad was going to happen.
"Is that all?"
"Yes. Go to him."
I ran back downstairs and saw that there were paramedics. They were about to take Lucas away.
"Wait! I have to talk to him."
I yelled for them to stop for a second.
I ran up to Lucas, ready to say what I needed to.
"Lucas. I need to tell you something."
"Luke, we've known each other for a while, but... I've started to have feelings for you."
I stopped and took a deep breath.
This is it.
"I love you."
I leaned in to give him a kiss.
We were in bliss for a full minute before we stopped to catch breath.
Just then, the paramedics began to pull us apart.
"No! Stop! L-Lucas!"
We both tried to wiggle out of their grips but we failed. All we could do was hold out our arms, trying to grab hands.
They took him into the back of the ambulance and drove away.
"I'm sorry son, but he needs to go to the hospital." the man said as he patted my head gently.
