Back Then

Mio Amato

~o~


Time already has gone and I found myself thinking. Where are you right now? Can you still remember me? Do you hate me for leaving you behind?

I know I don't have the right to think about you since the time that I left you there, but I can't force myself to. I busied myself in getting stronger, being an S-class mage, but I still can't forget about you Wendy.

As a child, everything here in Earthland was something different; except for you. You were the one thing that came to me as normal. I was innocent back then, but even now I still think the same as that; that you met me because of fate.

And fate decided to bring us again together, and through my guild none the less. I was very much surprised to see my first love smiling and laughing happily with my guild mates. I so desperately wanted to come up to you, but I know that if I did, it would cause you a lot of troubles.

I don't belong here, so that means I can't love anyone in this world. That's the reason why I hid my face in the first place. Coupled with the fact that I'm not even sure if you don't hate me for what I did to you back then. Leaving you behind like that, even if it was necessary. I hate myself for it, but it was for your own good. IF you had come with me, you could've died then.

So when I saw you laughing before I left the guild for a mission, I thought that it's for the best that you don't know my existence. It was for the sake of your happiness.

As for me, I guess I'm stuck into holding these bitter-sweet memories of mine; our memories of back then.
