A Deeper Understanding

The sun shined brightly on the pavement as Naoki and Aichi were on their way to card capital shop tournament for all the Card fighters who graduated this year. “Man I can’t wait! Me and my Brawlers are gonna wreck people!” Naoki shouted enthusiastically punching the air. “You ready Aichi!?”

“Of course I am.” Aichi smiled.

“So Aichi what deck are you using? I’m assuming your Gold Paladins?”

“No actually, I’m using the Royal Paladins.”

“What made you switch?” Naioki questioned surprised by Aichi’s choice of deck.

 “Well I started my Vanguard journey three years ago. All the Trials and tribulations I went through with you guys and my units has made me stronger. Also I promised someone I would. Does that make sense?”

“you know what it does.” The two boys continued walking until they saw Miwa in front of the Cemetery on his motorcycle.

“Miwa?” the blonde hair boy looked over and saw Aichi and Naoki walking towards him.

“Hey guys, sup?”

“Were on our way to card Capital to hang out before the tournament starts.  What are you doing here?”

“I’m waiting for someone.” He said motioning his head towards the cemetery. The two boys looked through the entrance gate to see Kai kneeling in the center between two graves.

“Kai…?”

“I promised him I would bring him after the graduation ceremony before we made our way to card capital. You should go see him Aichi.” Aichi looked at him confused. “He needs someone to be there with him on this visit.”

“Why don’t you go?”  Miwa sighed and looked over at Kai

“I think he needs someone else to be there besides me this time.” Miwa smiled at Aichi. Aichi just nodded and went into the commentary.

Meanwhile Kai sat in front of his Parents grave and gave a sad smile “I did it mom and dad. I graduated first in the class too. You guys would be proud of me,” He closed his eyes and pictured his parents were right in front of him congratulating and hugging him. “That’s not all. I have been scouted by allot of schools and institutes for Card fighting along with many professional card fighting teams. All over the world. Gillard has invited me to go train with him over in Europe. I’m thinking about taking him up on that offer.” Kai gave a sad smile and sighed “I wish you guys were here….” He said starting to tear up. “I miss you guys so much. Why did you have to be taken away from me…I wish you could see the person I have become…now it’s the time in my life where I need you two the most…”

“Kai…?” Kai got up off of the ground and turned to see Aichi.

“Aichi…?”  he said quickly wiping the tears away. He figured Miwa sent Aichi here to make sure he was okay.

“Kai who were you visiting?”

“My parents…” Aichi was speechless but it did make sense why Kai was always so distant. “Before you ask. They died in a car accident when I was 9. Ironically the same day I gave you Blaster Blade. I guess in a way it was test to see how strong I can be without the one thing that gave me courage.” Aichi took a step back clutching his deck in his blazer pocket. “I don’t regret giving him to you….you needed him more than I did.” Aichi didn’t know what to say he looked down at the ground. He took a deep breath and sighed.

“Kai…I know what it feels like….” Kai looked at him confused.

“I lost my father when I was really young that’s why I moved here…I don’t remember how…but I remember the pain. I don’t know what I would have done if I lost mom too.”

“You would survive. That’s what I did. I remember coming home from the park and saw my aunts car there…she was the one who broke the news. I ran away to Miwas house…After the funeral I moved away to go live with my aunt and uncle…I shut myself off from the world and people… I met Ren and Tetsu. Then Ren went down the path I would never follow him on…then I came back here and in a twist of fate I met you Aichi. I don’t know where and how I would be if I never met you again.”

“I feel the same way Kai…” the two boys smiled at each other.  No other words needed to be spoken

“Would you like to meet them?”

“Sure.” Aichi said giving a small smile.

“Mom dad, I want you to meet Aichi. He’s my friend I told you two about.”

“It’s nice to meet you.” He said putting his hand on Kais parent’s grave. The two boys sat in silence for a short bit until they heard Miwa call.

“Yo Kai, Aichi, the tournaments gonna start soon lets go!” the two boys smiled and got up.

“If we fight I’m not going to take it easy on you. Even though you graduated.”

“Heh I wouldn’t have it any other way. You have to show me how strong you really have become. Just like you promised me that day when we had our first card fight.”

“Yeah.” Aichi looked at Kai and Smiled. Kai smiled back at the blue haired boy, and together the two boys walked together towards the next stage in their lives.

sibyleisley: Right away, I was charmed by the characters in Nothing Between Us. Bella is fun to follow and SO easy to relate to, and Jace is the guy that you could spend 24/7 with and not get sick of him. And together, they're adorable and so right for each other. The writer did such a great job making me car...

cyaniderush: The story was gripping. The story flowed from one sentence to another that I did not even realize how much and how long I had been reading. There were run-on sentences in which the author used commas instead of semi-colons, but the meaning of the sentence was not lost. All in all, I enjoyed this ...

littlebite22: This made me think. About the world around me, about what I think of others. We rarely get to see or hear what others think, and this is such a great example of not judging a book by its cover. Also very well written.

ank1983: I really enjoyed this story and I read through it quickly. I found it very entertaining and some of your scenes were very well written and descriptive. Every time a chapter ended I couldn't wait to start the next chapter. What girl hasn't fantasized over a cute teacher at school?! The story did...

Avell Kro: I've only just started reading this, but I can see that this writer really knows her stuff. Her theme is painful and traumatic, and her sense of place is deep and strong.

P. A. Clouden: The world you've created here is powerful, dark and eerily prophetic. It's a poignant look at what a dystopian America can look like and how far off we are from it.

Silver: Its a very good story you have here. Felicity´s ability is interesting and original, I love it. The setting of a hostpital was a good choice, especially since we get the scene with the other interns, gives it a very real feel.

FreakyPoet: I found this story well written and extremely cute. I like how the emotional roller coaster, otherwise know as love, was done here. it was very believable that these two characters would deny, agonize, then come to except their feelings the way that they did. I enjoyed it very much, thank you ...
