You Brought Me Back
After the great re-opening of Robicheaux Academy, there was a great re-inauguration party with all the new witches who had joined the academy. Kyle was serving the drinks, helped by Zoe and Queenie, who had insisted.
"Be careful when drinking that, ladies," Queenie warned the new girls. "It's my special cocktail. A real bomb."
"Queenie, be careful with that. We don't want them to suffer an alcohol poisoning in her first day here," Zoe said.
"Of course not! And that won't happen! Stop worrying and let the girls have some fun! They will start her lessons soon and won't have so much time for fun like this."
"Alright, alright, just be careful." Zoe sighed and excused herself before going to the balcony to take some fresh air.
Queenie rolled her eyes and looked at Kyle. "Go check on your girl, mate. There's something not 'all right' with her."
Kyle nodded and grabbed a cup before heading to the balcony as well.
Zoe was showing him her back, leaning against the railings.
"I thought you looked thirsty," he said as he approached her, offering her the drink.
She turned around with a nostalgic smile and accepted the cup.
"I knew that was your superpower. You sense dehydration."
Kyle smiled too, but his smile quickly faded when he saw Zoe tearing up.
"Zoe… Zoe, what's wrong?" He cupped her face with his hands and washed her tears with his thumbs before remembering he had a handkerchief. He took it off his pocket and carefully soaked her tears with it. She sobbed.
"Zoe, please, tell me what's wrong," he pleaded, not knowing how to comfort her. "Did I say something that upset you? Did somebody do something to you? Is it because of what Queenie said?"
"No, no," Zoe shook her head. "You all did nothing wrong. It's just… this party… and you offering me a drink… it reminds me so much of…"
"Shhh, don't think about that now." Kyle held Zoe against his chest and kissed her hair. "This is a happy occasion."
"It's just I took everything from you… and then tried to give it back to you, but failed miserably… And now…"
"Now I'm with you and I'm happy again. You are all my family now, the only true family I have ever had. My father abandoned me, my mother abused me, my frat brothers ended up being rapists. You are the only person who has truly cared for me in, like, ever. I no longer regret what happened to me because it brought me to this new family, and you. I'm happy now, Zoe. And it's all thanks to you."
He kissed her hair again and she looked up at him.
"But you wanted to be an engineer, not a butler; you could be so much more…"
"I still can. Miss Cordelia told me I could continue my engineering studies via the Internet, with a different identity, of course. I was about to tell you."
Zoe sighed and hugged him tightly.
"I'm so glad. You deserve it, you've got talent. I'm so happy Cordelia helped you so much with her new Supreme powers."
"Me too. But never forget…" He gently took her face to make her look at him. "You helped me first."
Zoe smiled weakly. "But I had not enough power back then. I didn't even have the idea to bring you back, it was Madis…"
"You brought me back. You know what's the first thing I remember before leaving the darkness?"
Zoe shook her head.
"Something very soft against my lips and warm breath. It was you, Zoe, I knew it after our first night together. You brought me back with your breath, just like Cordelia did with you."
Zoe thought about that. It was true the spell didn't work after Madison cast it. It didn't work until Zoe brushed her lips with Kyle's.
The young witch looked back at him, knowing he was right, and she nodded.
"I'm just so sorry that I caused you so much pain…"
"Don't be. I'm not sorry. Not anymore." Kyle leaned down and kissed her, gently, softly, with love and passion, and Zoe put her hands around his waist and kissed him back with equal ardour. When they stopped to take a breath, Kyle smiled at Zoe and she smiled back.
"I love you," she said.
"I love you too," he answered before claiming her lips again.
Queenie observed them from inside, satisfied.
"I knew it was nothing a good talk and some kisses couldn't fix."
