Everything Falls Apart
"DON'T WALK AWAY FROM ME WHEN I'M TALKING TO YOU!"
"I'LL WALK AWAY WHEN I WANT TO WALK AWAY! DON'T YOU DARE TELL ME WHAT TO DO!" Slamming of the door was heard all over the fortress and so are the shouting of the King and Queen of Fanelia. Almost every night, they have a new reason to argue about and they never fail to disturb the whole castle. But as usual, before anyone is allowed to leave the castle, they are asked to keep their mouth shut about the argument of the two.
She sighed, she can't even remember when she started arguing with Van about the little things she finds annoying about him. Knowing Van's short temper, he will never apologize to something he doesn't find wrong.
She sat out in the garden and stared at the sky. She can see the blue moon, the world where she came from, the world where she grew up, where she can be herself, free and ordinary. Five years have past when she first descend upon this cursed land. She always thought that she never belonged here. She was surprised by pillar of light and never thought that in one blink of an eye, everything will change.
But after a few weeks of staying in Gaea, she fell in love. It was too late when she found out about her hidden desire for Van Fanel. But he told him to return to earth, and soon, when the time is right, he will come for her and be with her forever.
Two years of fame on earth as a famous track racer, just when the world is about to discover about the twenty year old track racer, once again, she was stripped away from her home land.
SO close to reaching her fame, so close to achieving everything she planned for her life. She never thought she'd descend upon this land again.
"Hitomi." His voice was calm and cold. She didn't face him, even though she managed to calm herself, every time she sees him, her insides boils with anger and frustration.
"I know what is wrong" He said.
"Yes, there is something wrong with you." She interrupted. Van took a deep breath to keep himself from shouting.
"NO, with us." He said. He closed his eyes and sat behind her. "Why are you being like this?"
"ME? What do you mean why am I acting like this? You never let me out of your sight as if someone will be interested in kidnapping me. Let it go, Van. The war ended five years ago, will you just loosen up a bit?"
"You're always mad all the time, like nothing satisfies you. Whatever I do, I do it because I love you, and I care about you."
"I am not a child, I am not your responsibility."
"Yes you are! Have you ever thought how I'll feel if something happens to you? I can never forgive myself."
"Nothing will happen to me. Nothing happens in this world that involves me. ME!" She grunted and covered her face in shame. She knows how selfish she's reacting and how ridiculous she sounds.
"You want something horrible to happen to you? That's so unreasonable Hitomi! Do you know how much I went through to make Fanelia perfectly place for you and her people?" Though he wanted to shout, he tried to control and temper to reason with his wife.
"Do YOU know what happened to me back on Earth?" Tears are starting to build in her eyes, whether it's because of greif or anger she doesn't care. Van sighed.
"What do you want Hitomi?"
She closed her eyes and whispered "I want to go back."
