My Other Half 2: Healing Hearts

† Twenty Three †

.

Yui's POV...

.

"I-I'm sorry, Christa-sama... I promised Subaru-san that I won't let you go" I said, trying to convince the queen to stay here at the mansion and not be involve in the fight. Ayato said that it's highly dangerous, seeing Satran-san got fatally wounded even though he's one of Richter's minions and right hand man of Karlheinz.

However, Christa-sama put both her hands on my shoulders and looked at me straight in the eyes. "Yui" she said "I know it's very risky but they're my sons even though they didn't came from me as well as you're like a daughter to me... So please understand"

Her sincere words felt like a huge pang in my heart. It's true that I even though she wasn't my true mom, she had always been one to me. She was always there even when the times were rough...

.

Flashback...

.

"I always thought my heart belong to Yui..."

"Huh??" I was walking through the hallway towards the smell of blood whom I recognize was Azusa-san's when I heard Ayato's voice. I hid myself and tried to listen to the conversation when I saw everyone gathered inside with remorseful faces.

"I kept myself believing that but every time I think of you, I loose my cool and always worry if you're fine or if you're doing well until I realized I'm actually in love with you and at the same time with Yui..." Ayato said and suddenly, I felt like my world came crushing down.

"I don't want to break your friendship and hurt you so I decided to marry her but... Why do always feel empty?? I-I'm really sorry..." I felt hot tears sting in the corner of my eyes until I didn't realize, they were now rivers flowing down my face.

Mine and Yu-chan's eyes connected. She had a grim face and I can't held it in any longer. I ran away with my heart shattered into broken pieces of betrayal. It's true that I'm really happy that Ayato proposed to me but sometimes, I can't seem to ignore the feelings that his heart wasn't mine.

End of Flashback...

.

"Please, Yui..." Christa-sama said, snapping me out of my thoughts. I don't know why but it seems like I did held a grudge. A feeling that I never knew existed inside of me and at the same time, tries to disappear. But now, I finally understand.

It's just like with Leo. I can't blame Yu-chan for being the perfect girl. Smart, beautiful, kind, talented?? She has everything. Who am I to even try and challenge her?? When I know that in reality, I can never be at her level. I remembered that time when she finally caught up with me and we both end up in a fight.

Just any that same time with Leo, I fought with her. But this time, I'm a vampire but she has the strength of one so I still didn't stand a chance. We both went down the ground with rivers of tears streaming down our faces. None wants to accept the fact that our friendship has already tainted and it can never be healed.

.

However, she still chose to let go of him. To let go of my Ore-sama. To let go of my love...

.

.

.

.

But I didn't let it.

.

.

.

.

For she has the kindest heart I've ever met and I know that even how many times I try to hate her, she has always been the forgiving one. Never hating and always thinking of others first...

.

.

.

A selfless being that even no matter how many times has been hurt or even cried a thousand of tears, chooses to accept pain in exchange of love...

.

.

.

.

"Now I understand what I must do..." I said as a smile graced my face. I look up to Christa-sama and it seems like she understood "I want to save the person who has always been my hero, my savior, my sister..."

.

.

.

.

But most of all...

.

.

.

.

My best friend....

Ayato's POV...

.

"DAMNIT!!" the sugar cubaholic bastard screamed for the umpteenth time this night while banging the metal bars with red glowing ancient scriptures. I saw Shu, Ruki and Reiji trying devise the barrier while the others are trying to calm him down. Even Kanato is having a hard time either. "Laito... " the creepy child said, worried of our brothers' well being.

It seems like I'm the same too. Worried of the pervert for the first time. Hell how should i?? he looks dying and weak. He's pale sick with darker circles than Kanato's and you can see the lines of his veins. The cold ground isn't helping either. He shivers with cold violently due to the fact that those scriptures prevents us from using any magic.

"Don't worry... He'll be alright" I said, reassuring Kanato as I stroke a hair out of Laito's face. I know that no matter how many times I convinced myself, I know that his situation right now is critical but I still tried to convince myself that it's fine. That we can still make it out together like before. But... I doubted it... Fear strikes me that it wouldn't happen. Helpless as they say...

That all we can do right now is to keep him warm with my blazer and stay with his side as suffer from the pain of the poisonous silver and blood loss. I swear that once I get out, I will KILL that bastard!! But right now, our priority is him and if we do nothing fast, the poison from the silver dagger would kill him and I hate it when I can do nothing for him.

I sighed thinking about our days when everything was alright. I know we never get along ever since that "First Time"... That first time I heard him scream and begged... That first time he cried... That first time he changed and distanced himself away from us but the memories are still fresh from my mind of how he had been a good brother of mine.

I snapped out of my thoughts when a cold hand touched mine. I looked at the owner and met feeble emerald eyes of my brother. "I-I'm... Fine" Laito suddenly coughed up blood violently.

"You idiot!!" Subaru hollered, scolding him "Please just rest..."

However, the stubborn pervert didn't obliged. He started writing on the floor using his blood with what little strength he had left. It looks like a symbol that I can't make out before he finally fell lifeless on the unforgiving tiled floor. "L-Laito..??" I said, my mind blank. No no no no... This can't be happening...

The others stopped with what their doing and rushed to my side in an instance. I took the cold lifeless body of my brother in arms. I always knew that he's always been the favorite. I always knew that I can never match his level. I always knew that he's better than me.

If only... If only SHE didn't mess things up... If only HE had been a good father to us... If only that BASTARD didn't corrupt his sanity.. If only.. If only..

There were so many IFs that if I had the ability to change back time, I would use it and set things right the way it should be...

"LAITOOOOO!!!"
