Sky's the Limit! Chapter 6
~ Hall, Sora ~
Eventually, I wanted to sit up already since I stopped crying. I leaned on the wall feeling stupid, covered again with bruises and dirt, the bandage that Riku wrapped for me, now ruined and torn. I couldn't seem to move that much, my head was aching like I'm banging my head to the wall. My view was also blurry and then it went all black.
"Sora!" I opened my eyes and looked around, it seems like I was in a beach
'I think I know this place, but where?' I looked around to check who was calling me and saw a young boy, sitting down alone and crying. His hair was like mine and he looked a lot like me
"SORA!" I looked around again and finally saw who was calling me; it was young Riku running towards me.
'Is that me from before?' I finally realized it was me (younger me, of course)
"Why are you crying?" Riku was huffing and sweating
"C-cause you never came back to me!!" my younger me was crying
"I'm here right now, aren't I?" Riku still huffing and bent down to me
"Stop crying, will you?" Riku held me gently in his arms. As I watched them, my chest felt tight and I was guessing my younger me felt the same, too.
"R-Riku?" I looked at him (my younger me) He pulled my bangs up and kissed my forehead, both me and my younger me were shocked and red. I know he kissed me many times in my forehead, but why am I feeling so embarrassed?
"Dummy, why did you do that?!" Riku didn't answer and just held me in his arms
"I'll tell you this, Sora. I will NEVER leave you! Believe it or not, I'll stay by your side, okay? If I'm not by your side, pretend I'm there because I'll do the same. When it's night, look at the stars and think about me, because I'll also do the same
If you get hurt, I'll protect you. If you're sad, I'll be sad also. You are my number one priority in my life already
I'm always here for you" Riku wiped my tears away. Hearing what he said right now made me so light and happy.
" I smiled
"Promise me you won't forget what I said
" I nodded happily and giggled
My view was getting blurry again and heard someone calling my name
"Sora!" I saw a blond guy in front of me
" mumbling to me and realizing it was Roxas calling and shaking me violently. I saw 2 other people with him. One had red, spiky hair and the other had white, straight hair, it was so blurry I could barely see their faces.
" I felt someone carrying me again like a princess, my head still hurt a lot.
I'm so sorry
" I felt so weak and blacked out again
~ Riku's POV ~
" I carried Sora. Good thing it was already dismissal. Roxas and Axel had Sora's bag since we couldn't find him after he ran away from me.
I'm so sorry
" Sora passed out. The words he blurted out hit me, making me wonder why he's saying "sorry" to me. I walked to my car with Roxas and Axel behind me. Roxas opened the door for me; I laid Sora in the back so he could sleep more. I opened the compartment and put his stuff.
"I'll drive you guys home if you want" I invited Roxas
"Oh no, I can't. Could you just take care of Sora for me?" he pulled out his keys from his pockets and gave it to me
"Why can't you?" I asked
"We have to do something later!" Axel put his arms and pulled Roxas closer to him
"I-It's just TUTORING!! NOTHING MORE" Roxas panicked
"Okay, Rox. Good luck with Axel, 'kay?" I smiled at them and got in the front seat
"Thank you, Riku
" Roxas smiled
"No problem, Rox." I started the engine and saw Sora through the mirror. He slept like an angel; I really cared about him so much.
As we drove back to his house, I heard him mumbling my name
'What is he thinking about?' As I parked the car, I got out and carried Sora in my back instead. Unlocked the door and closed it with my foot as we got inside. I went straight up to his room, put him down on his bed and put his blankets on him. I realized he was shaking tremendously and red, I touched his forehead
'Oh no, he has a fever
' I went downstairs, prepared a face towel and put warm water on a medium size plastic bucket and got some bandages. I went upstairs again and saw he was awake.
~ Sora's POV ~
I opened my eyes gently and realized I wasn't in my room anymore, but in my bedroom. I heard someone running to my room, I sat up slowly. My head hurt badly, I tried not to think about the pain but it was too much. The door opened and I saw Riku carrying bandages and hot water with a towel.
"Don't get up, lay down again." Riku ordered me and I did what he said. He sat down beside me; put the wet (not soaking) towel on my head and put bandages on my bruises
"Why are you doing this?" I asked him and he didn't respond
"I thought you were mad at me
" I looked down, trying not to remember what happened a while ago.
"Why the hell would I'd be mad for?" he replied as he was putting bandages on my face
" I mumbled
"Why didn't you tell me you were feeling sick?"
"I didn't know
" He was done aiding me. My chest felt tight again, but I also felt happy because of what he said. My emotions were tangled and curled up, not knowing what my true emotions are
"I'm sorry, Riku
"Why are you apologizing again?"
"What do you mean??" I looked at him with complete shock
"You kept saying 'sorry' to me a while ago."
'W-what the hell is he saying?!' I got confused and turned red because of the embarrassment
"You don't remember?"
" My head hurt so bad this time. "Ah
" I held my head to massage it.
"Sora, you alright?"
"Y-yeah, just a little headache
"Shh, don't talk anymore and get some more sleep" he shushed me, got up and turned around
I suddenly grabbed his shirt tightly
"P-please don't leave me
Just stay here
!" Riku turned around with a smile on his face. I let go of his shirt as he kneeled down beside me and touched my cheek gently again
"Fine, I'll stay here a little longer
Just for you" I put my hand where his hand was on my cheek and smiled at him. He put my bangs up and went closer to me. He kissed my forehead like before
But, longer and sweeter, I felt my heart skip a beat and it made me cry
I bit my lips and closed my eyes with my tears rolling down on my cheek. I felt someone licking my tears away. I opened my eyes and saw Riku, it startled me and it made me blush hard. I closed my eyes again
I let out a soft moan as he continued to lick my cheek to my right eye. I felt him kissed my eye.
"Riku?" I looked at him. "What are you
?" he touched my cheek again and went closer to my lips. Our lips were inches apart. I didn't want him to stop. I closed my eyes tightly hoping this would happen for real. I felt his breathing fading. I opened my eyes to see what happened. He looked away
" He stood up as I sat up
"Where are you going?" He brushed my hair to cheek and he smiled
"I stayed here too long already, you still have to sleep. I have to go" he smiled
As I heard him saying that, I felt a hole growing bigger in my heart.
"But, I don't want you to leave
!" my cheeks felt like it was on fire
I saw the shock in his eyes as he snickers softly
"Why not?" he asked with a smile
"C-cause..! I want you to be here with me!! Roxas isn't here yet!" I made up an excuse for him to stay longer
"You're a big boy aren't you?" he smirks to tease me
"What the hell do you mean by that?!" I blushed hard
"Nothing.." he snickers again "I have to go.. Bye.." patting my head
I look down, my eyes filled with despair and sadness. He kissed my forehead again and again. I loved the feeling of his lips on my cheek and forehead... Oh, how I wished it was on my lips...
"I'll call you when I get home, deal?" he said
"Fine... Thank you for looking out for me, Riku.." smiling warmly at him as he left the room. I lied back down and just stared at the ceiling. It was nothing but him on my mind... Just me and him...
'Maybe I am in love with Riku...' I thought to myself as my blush grew deep and big. I started to have thoughts of us kissing. I didn't mind, but then...
"R-Riku..!" I muttered quietly. My mind was filled of perverted stuff already. I imagined Riku touching and kissing me everywhere.
"Oh, Ri" I snapped out and turned completely red, feeling embarrassed at everything I thought. Hiding under the bed sheet and just relaxed for a moment.
'What if we did that? Should I get ready?'
You should go and rest... a voice popped out of my mind, it was Riku. I smiled and did what I was told to do. I closed my eyes, smiling as I slept.
~ 30 minutes later ~
Something was ringing loud, was it my phone?
I woke up a bit, moving my hand around, searching for my phone at the table
"Gah..!" I grabbed my phone and realize the ringtone was different. Quickly sitting up and answered my phone
"H-hello?" I answered shyly
"Hey, Sora! Did I wake you or something?" it was Riku! I felt so happy he called
"E-er no, why did you ask, Riku?" he snickered 'Why is he...?' I felt confused.. Is he making fun of me?
"I called you like 10 times already and you didn't pick up. So, I assumed you were asleep."
"I-Is that so?" I felt like the happiest little boy in the whole world! 'He did call, huh?' I smiles softly
We talked all night long, laughing, sharing memories and having a great time, I felt better when I'm with him. I had no worries at all. I really do love him, ever since we met.. No, ever since I laid my eyes on him. Why.. Why do I love him so badly? What is so good about him?
"It's already late, Sora... Time to sleep." He whispered quietly through the phone
"Yeah... Oyasumi, Riku..." I yawned "Ne, Riku?" I added
"Can you talk to me 'till I fall asleep?" Trying to be awake just to say those words and to hear his answer
"Sure..." he began to talk and talk about the most random things... I was really dead tired so, I just didn't talk. My eyes closed gently, still hearing his voice on the phone
"Goodnight, Sora..." he whispered really quietly but able to hear
"...I love you... Riku..." mumbling without realizing what I said as I fell asleep with a smile on my face...
