Scars

By Adieu-KKZ

Romance

Time, And Time Again

"Speaking" 'Thoughts' Sounds

I don't own the "feel-ride-of-an-anime: Tokyo Ghoul"


Anteiku…how did he end up here? Yoshimura is dead, he killed Amon, with the company of injuries. He didn't have any purpose of being here anymore; he didn't make it in time.

"It's surprisingly hard to make coffee, isn't it?"

"Yo, Kaneki." Hide's voice broke the silence. He flinched, and covered his ghoul transformed eye. He couldn't let the only thing he always tried to protect know what he was. A person that couldn't even be classified as a human, or ghoul anymore. He felt tears sting his eyes, threatening to spill.

"I always knew," Hide's calm voice reached him. Still not revealing his left eye he dared to look him in the eye.

Drip, drop

He watched his best friend walk across the room, and lean on the window trying to ease the tension in the room by making jokes about how terrible his coffee skills were.

"I guess it can't be that easy, huh?"

He could let go, his hand frozen in place not daring to utter a single word, in hopes of somehow that causing him to lose Hide too.

"I guess it's no use," Hide said with a light chuckle. How was he able to be so care-free after he found out that his friend was an abomination?

"Kaneki…thanks for going all-out for me," He was thanking him, how? His hands finally dropped to the side, and allowed Hide to look at him, all of him.

Drip, drip, drop

"Kaneki, you've gotten pretty famous. "Eyepatch," they call you," Hide said making him way back to Kaneki. "You styling it up?" He smiled slightly at the joke, soon they both started to chuckle lightly.

Hide stumbled as they laughed; more blood poured. He watched Hide topple to the floor struggling to hold himself up; his wound wasn't pouring, but Hide's.

"Hide..?"

"I screwed up…just a little bit out there…"

"Hide…"

"Kaneki…"

He struggled as he tried to get up; his hands desperately tried to hold on.

"Let's go home," Hide said as he dropped in Kaneki's lap. He felt hot tears continuously pour from his eyes as he stared at his best friend's lifeless body.

He wasn't strong enough, he could never stop the people he loved from dying.

A/N||: I made this in respect to my fellow fangirl/best friend who will remain anonymous.

If there are any questions, please ask, if there is any wrong dialogue comment my mistake, and lastly please let me know if you like, hate, love it?
