Butterfly by Shadow Raven

"Come on Relena!" " No way guys! You know I hate singing in public!" said Relena trying to resist Dou and Hildy's attempts to get her on stage in the karaoke bar that the g-boys and girls had come for a reunion. "Come on just one song!" pleaded Duo. Relena sighed her defeat, she could never resist Duo when he had those puppy eyes set on her. (A/N Who could?) That's how he had gotten her here after all. Relena walked up onto the stage and flipped through the songs given. She couldn't make up her mind till a song caught her attention. She smiled and selected it. The music came on and she gently swayed to the tune.

"You're a love song

Only half-way sung

You're the knot that comes undone

You're the daylight

Dressed as darkest night

The flight of a stringless kite"

It was a beautiful old jazz/blues song that she had adored the first time she heard it. It had just spoken to her. Who ever had written it had obviously had the same problems with a guy that she did.

"The very vision

The mirage man

You're air in the palm of my hand

You're like catching

The day's sunset

O rain that's never wet"

She wondered where he was. He hadn't shown up for the reunion but that was like him he never really had anything to do with anyone.directly that is.

"You're a butterfly in the mind

You're a butterfly before my eyes

You're a butterfly, a trick of time Who leaves before he arrives"

Suddenly a dark shadow in the back caught her attention. She smiled softly she knew exactly who that was. Somehow are another he had known that she was going to be there.



"You're a butterfly in the mind

You're a butterfly before my eyes

You're a butterfly who says he's mine Who leaves before he arrives"

She watched the figure leaned against the back. She wondered where he would go next. Her Butterfly.

"You're a butterfly in the mind

You're a butterfly before my eyes

You're a butterfly who says he's mine Who leaves before he arrives"

As the song ended the bar was silent for a moment and then broke out into thunderous applause. Relena blushed and hurried offstage to her table. "Lena Babe I didn't now you could sing like that!" exclaimed Duo. "Oh, I have many hidden talents." She replied mysteriously. Her eyes glanced at the place where the shadow had been before it was now vacant. But she had a feeling that it wouldn't be the last time. ~~{(@~~{(@~~{(@~~{(@~~{(@~~{(@~~{(@~~{(@~~{(@~~{(@~~{(@~~{(@~~{(@~~{(@~~{(@ S.R.: Okay did anyone else think that stunk? *Glares at muses who are about to say something* besides the peanut gallery!
