Hi there well here is chapter three at long last sorry it's taken so long but I couldn't decide whether to have this as the last chapter or to write more. So I have come to a decision that if any of you wish for another chapter to please let me know and if there are enough request's I'll be happy to write another chapter for you all.
Chapter Three: Finding the words
I can't believe how stupid I've been, the answer to my problem had been so simple yet it took Jerry to help me realize it; Allen thought while on his way to his bedroom.
As soon as Allen got to his bedroom he rushed over to his desk and lit the gas lamp that was situated in the top right corner of the desk. He then took out some paper from the desk draw and with a pen in hand he began to write his love to his beloved Lavi.
''No… no….. this is all wrong!"
Allen screwed up yet another piece of paper and threw it into his bin but since the bin was already full with his other failed attempts it just fell on to the floor. Allen was facing a problem he didn't know how to put his feelings into words or to be more precise he couldn't find those elusive words that he so longed to say. How he wished he could find those magical words and speak them to the one he loved most in this world.
Allen lent back on his chair and closed his eyes trying to think of what to write, he had so many things he wanted to tell Lavi. As Allen tried to think on how to begin he suddenly remembered the words that Jerry had spoken in their conversation.
''Speak from the heart!"
Those words echoed in Allen's mind for a while until he finally took up his pen and began to write, after three hours had passed Allen held up his finished letter feeling rather pleased with himself. He then carefully placed the letter in an envelope and signed it to Lavi.
By this point Allen was feeling rather exhausted and with a yawn he stretched out his arms and legs and looked over to where his bed was. But to Allen it seemed just too far away and with another yawn he decided to take a quick nap at his desk.
It was just before daybreak when Lavi returned to the Black Order, he had recently been on a mission which had caused him to be away for two whole weeks. Since it was so early in the morning there was hardly anybody around but there was one person to greet him though and that was Lenalee.
''Hi there Lavi welcome back''.
''Hey there Lenalee it's good to be back!"
''So Lavi how was your mission did you find any Innocence?"
''No it was a complete bust but at least this means that the Millenium Earl wasn't able to get any more Innocence either!"
''So did any Akuma show up?"
''Just a few but I was able to handle them all, urm….. by the way is Allen here by any chance?"
''Well now let me think!"
''Oh come on Lenalee just tell me if he's here or not I have to know!"
Lenalee began to smile on seeing how Lavi was acting she couldn't believe how much Lavi had changed since Allen had come to the Black Order and for this she was extremely grateful to Allen.
Before Lavi always seemed as though he was trying too hard, he always had a smile upon his face yet somehow there was a deep sadness behind that clear green eye of his. There was also the fact that he never really got close to anyone he always kept them at a distance never opening up his heart to anyone. But now Lavi seemed like a completely different person to how he used to be and it was all because of one young silver haired exorcist by the name of Allen Walker.
''Okay Lavi calm down I'll tell you!"
''Yes Allen is indeed here but before you can see him you will have to make your report to Komui understand!"
''No problem I'll go do that right now".
''See ya Lenalee!"
Lenalee watched Lavi leave heading in the direction towards the science division where her brother Komui would be, and with that she headed out to meet up with Kanda together they had been assigned a new mission.
After Lavi made his report he headed straight for Allen's bedroom hoping to surprise him, he couldn't wait to see his beloved, he had been missing Allen so much while on his mission.
When Lavi got to Allen's room he knocked on the heavy wooden door but there was no response, he then called out to Allen hoping to hear a reply.
''Hey ….Allen it's me Lavi I've just got back from my mission are you up?"
Still no response came and Lavi wondered if Allen was sleeping, Lavi got tired of waiting and decided to try the door to see if it was unlocked. Lavi tested the handle on the door to Lavi's surprise he found the door to be unlocked, he then slowly opened the door.
The sight that Lavi saw when he entered Allen's room was of Allen who had fallen asleep at his desk, the warm gentle sunlight of the morning filtered through the gap in the curtains and there was Allen bathed in this golden light looking so beautiful and cute in Lavi's eye.
As quietly as he could Lavi walked over to where Allen was sleeping hoping to steal a kiss from his sleeping loves lips. Lavi stood over Allen and placed a loving hand on Allen's head and smiled so tenderly at his sleeping love when he noticed something under Allen's right hand.
This of course made Lavi curious to find out what it was and so using his expertise as an apprentice bookman he was able to slip the envelope out from under Allen's right hand without even waking him up.
Lavi looked at the small white envelope, he was shocked to discover that it was in fact addressed to him. Lavi didn't know whether he should open it up or if he should wait for Allen to give it to him, but curiosity got the better of him and Lavi opened up the envelope to find a letter. But this was no ordinary letter it was in fact a love letter for him, Lavi began to read the contents of the love letter.
To my one and only Lavi
I'm writing this letter to you because I lack the courage to tell you face to face. There is something I have been trying to tell you for a long time now but the words would always fly away from me whenever I was with you. In the beginning I thought of you as just a friend I was so happy to find someone who I could rely on and share my problems with. But as time went by my feeling for you changed into something more and I wondered to myself if I even deserve to be this happy and to feel this way.
For so long Lavi I have been in the dark depths of despair and even though I never showed it there was a darkness within my heart. Ever since the day I lost Mana Walker and I was cursed, I truly believed that I didn't deserve to be happy and that I had to do anything within my power to make up for the mistake I made. But then I found you Lavi, you gave me light again, you filled the emptiness that filled my heart. I love you so much Lavi that I sometimes feel like my heart will burst at any given moment, I know it's not much but here is poem to convey my true feeling for you.
Three Little Words
Three little words whisper softly
Within this heart whenever we a far apart
Just three little words call out your name
When you appear in my dreams
Three little words echo in my soul
Whenever I'm around you
Just three little words
Can make me cry or smile
These three little words
How I long to say them to you
But it's such a hard thing to do
Just to say those three little words
I miss you….
I need you….
I love you…
Lavi was so moved by this pure declaration of love that tears started to well up in his one good eye, this was the first time anyone had confessed their love him in such away as this. Lavi bent down to and whispered softly to Allen who was still sleeping.
''I love you Allen Walker with all my heart and I promise that I will never leave your side!"
In his sleep Allen mumbled back.
''I love you Lavi!"
And with that Lavi placed a tender kiss upon Allen's cheek.
Well that's the end of chapter three remember to let me know if any of you wish for another chapter, you never know I may decide to add another one.
