A/N I don't own Angel Beats or "Here Without You". This was just an idea that jumped into my head.


It had been a few days since the last concert. A few days since the teachers tried shutting down the GirlDeMo for good. But that hadn't worked…all in part of Iwasawa. Hisako sighed, looking up at the sky. Three days after the event. Irie and Sekine were waiting to hear Yuri's report on Yui. Hisako didn't want anything to do with music right now.

At least you're at peace…Masami Hisako thought softly, with a sad smile. She knew her friend well enough to tell that. And as far as she knew Hisako was the only one who knew Iwasawa's first name.

In the three days that had passed Hisako couldn't get her friend out of her head. Along with this was an ache in her heart that she couldn't identify. But either way Hisako didn't quite mind it. She called it mourning the loss of her friend.

A soft wind blew, carrying with it a faint sound of an acoustic guitar. Hisako shot into a sitting position, remembering the last time she had heard a random guitar being played. Iwasawa? Could she have come back? The brown haired girl shot upward, feet taking her toward the sound.

Sitting in the grass on the other side of the hill was another girl but not Iwasawa. Hisako stopped short, taking in this new girl. She had dirty blonde hair with hazel eyes that watched a bird flirting through the trees. Her fingers were deftly plucking at the strings and every few seconds she'd stop, turning the instrument. With a feeling a relief Hisako noticed it wasn't Iwasawa's. This one was black, with a dark red pick guard and trim to the neck.

Suddenly the girl broke into song. There was a short intro, with the notes being low and sort of depressing. Hisako sat down.

A hundred days have made me older
Since the last time that I saw your pretty face…
A thousand lies have made me colder
And I don't think I can look at this the same…
But all the miles that separate
Disappear now when I'm dreaming of your face.

I'm here without you baby
But you're still on my lonely mind
I think about you baby
And I dream about you all the time

I'm here without you baby
But you're still with me in my dreams
And tonight it's only you and me, yeah

The miles just keep rollin'
As the people leave their way to say hello
I've heard this life is overrated
But I hope that it gets better as we go, oh yeah yeah

I'm here without you baby
But you're still on my lonely mind
I think about you baby
And I dream about you all the time

I'm here without you baby
But you're still with me in my dreams
And tonight girl it's only you and me

Everything I know and anywhere I go
It gets hard but it won't take away my love
And when the last one falls, when it's all said and done
It gets hard but it won't take away my love, whoa

I'm here without you baby
But you're still on my lonely mind
I think about you baby
And I dream about you all the time

I'm here without you baby
But you're still with me in my dreams
And tonight girl it's only you and me, yeah oh yeah oh

Hisako made a small noise in the back of her throat as the blonde finished her song. Suddenly she knew why she was feeling an ache in her heart. Hisako had loved Iwasawa. It had just taken the pink haired girl leaving for her to realize that. The tomboy guitarist bowed her head as tears started to fall.

I'm so sorry Masami.
