Chapter Thirty: Morning:
Early in the morning hours, Tsuzuki and Anna lied on the porch looking at the ceiling of the roof. The shinigami glanced at his beloved.
â€œFeel any better?â€ he asked. Anna nodded with her lips pressed together.
â€œYeah,â€ she answered.
â€œYou sure?â€ he asked. Anna closed her mouth and took a second think about it. Tsuzuki already saw the answer.
â€œNot really?â€ he asked. Anna shook her head rather reluctant.
â€œI cut out his heart, but it vanished before I had a chance to crush it,â€ she admitted.
â€œDonâ€™t you believe heâ€™s really dead?â€ her boyfriend pressed.
â€œI want to, butâ€¦â€ Anna bit her lip, â€œIâ€™m not so sure, you know?â€ Tsuzuki gave her a small smile as he gently held her hand. Anna looked over at him.
â€œOh,â€ she said in a small voice.
â€œWe just came through the worst and weâ€™re still here,â€ he told her. Anna gave him a little nod as it all sank into her head.
â€œThis is true,â€ she agreed.
â€œThink we can take more?â€ the shinigami asked. His girlfriendâ€™s face shaded over rather serious.
â€œIâ€™m not sure,â€ she said in a low voice. Tsuzuki tightened his grip around her hand.
â€œWant to know how I found you out there?â€ he asked her rather excited. Anna looked at him rather curious.
â€œGo on, enlighten me,â€ she replied.
â€œWe made it back to the house and found it empty,â€ her boyfriend explained, â€œWe looked around, but you were nowhere in sight. I got worried and ran out there.â€ Anna gave him a sweet little pout.
â€œDid I really upset you that much?â€ she asked like a little angel.
â€œYes!â€ he said aloud. That reminded Anna of another point.
â€œAsato-kun,â€ the woman spoke up.
â€œHm?â€ her boyfriend asked.
â€œHow did you manage to talk to me while I was being attacked?â€ the woman inquired over him. The shinigami shrugged at her as he thought about that question.
â€œI donâ€™t know what happened,â€ he admitted, â€œI blacked out at Kyoto University and saw that bastard trying to rape you. I just yelled out to you and came back!â€
â€œCould you do it again?â€ Anna asked. Tsuzuki shook his head.
â€œNo,â€ he confessed. Anna pondered his answer.
â€œStrangeâ€¦â€ she replied.
â€œHey, donâ€™t forget out words,â€ her boyfriend told her. Anna smiled as she held his hand back.
â€œWe will be okay,â€ she said.
â€œYes, we will be okay,â€ he repeated.
â€œWe will be okay,â€ Anna said back in a stronger tone.
â€œWe will be okay,â€ Tsuzuki said in confidence.
Inside, Hisoka watched them from his futon. It all became clear to him. Tsuzuki and Anna had unique bond between them. They needed each other to fix themselves. Hisoka developed an understanding for their relationship.
It didnâ€™t mean he had to like it.
