Enjoy the story
Remember the time you lent me your scarf and I torn it?
I thought that you would be mad at me...
But you didn't.
I was walking to the guild shaking quite a little, I remembered asking you to lend your scarf to me because it's really cold around Magnolia. And as I was walking back home, I tripped on a rock and fell, and to my horror I saw the scarf you love so much got caught in one of the swords that I had, the sword managed to cut the scarf. I tried sewing the scarf myself but I only made it worse.
I then entered the guild and I saw you walking up to me asking me about your scarf, I then fell to the ground, crying as I give you back your scarf.
I saw your eyes widened in horror, I waited for you to hit me, like I deserve, but as I waited, and waited but you never hit me.
I saw you smile sadly and tell me that it was alright, you then wore the torn scarf around your neck and walked away.
Remember the times I'd flirt with
other boys just to make you jealous, and
I thought you'd drop me...
But you didn't.
I walked along with Gray, smiling seductively at him as he started to blush, I saw you near the counter growling at him but not at me.
The next day, I started walking along the park with Jellal as we held hands with each other, I saw you behind the tree with jealousy in your eyes, you looked like you were about to burn the tree.
The next day, I talked to you and to my shock you didn't say anything about breaking up with me at all.
Remember the time when you told me something was off about the mission,
And it really was?
I thought you would say "I told you so"….
But you didn't
It seemed like a really good mission. All the mission required were two people and they needed to pose as models for a good amount of money, the kind of money that's usually given out as S-Class rewards. You told me over and over about how it's too good to be true, yet I didn't listen.
And when we arrived at our destination, you had to jump in for an attack directed at ME.
You were hurt because of me yet we managed to defeat the enemy.
I was waiting the whole time for the words "I told you so" like I deserved, yet, those words never escaped your mouth.
Instead, you gave me a smile and asked if I were hurt and walked off together, hand in hand.
There were plenty of things you did to put up with me,
to keep me happy, to love me, and there are
so many things I wanted to tell
you when you returned from
your search for Igneel...
But you didn't.
I remember all the silly faces you made just to make me laugh, all the cake you bought for me just to make me happy, and the way you smile that makes me smile.
And one day, you told me that you were about to go and look out for Igneel, I remember wanting to join you so that you wouldn't be alone on your journey, but Master had called me out to assist him in something.
I remember wishing you off with a sad smile on my face and you gave me a chaste kiss just to make my worries go away. I could still remember watching as your retreating form get smaller and smaller.
Even if it was just a few days before you would be back, I remember wanting to tell you just how much I love you, I wanted to express my love to you.
I knew that I wanted to BE with you for the rest of my life.
But it had been several days since you were last here, where were you? I wanted to tell you how much I missed you, I wanted to show it to you.
But that could no longer happen as I saw the Master started crying and started giving us news, giving us the news all about you.
I remember crying and shouting that it wasn't true, I remember that I started crying uncontrollably, I remember almost joining you up in the sky but everyone stopped me from doing so.
I remember the day of your funeral, I remember seeing everyone crying their hearts out, I can remember the Master giving an emotional speech about you.
But I didn't care about any of that, I remember started crying, pulling my hair out, if only I joined you during your trip and this wouldn't have happen.
Then you would still be beside me, still holding me in your arms, still telling me that you love me.
If only I had told you what I wanted to tell you sooner, if only I told you what I wanted you to know, If only I had told you right away. If only I could go back that day, but even I knew that it was impossible.
I remember heading back to my room that night, as I held one of my swords in my hands, I needed you to be with me, I needed you beside me. I couldn't stand you not being there with me.
"Hey there Erza, how are you!"
"Erza, are you alright?"
"Erza…..I love you."
Your voice was always filled with joy and excitement, you always made my day whether I'm sad or angry you always know what to do to cheer me up.
I then closed my eyes as I pressed the sword near my throat.
'I'll be with you soon, my love.'
The moral of this poem is not to wait to tell the important people in your life how you feel about them, but do it right away. You never know if you'll get the chance again.
