When The Birds Fly West









Prologue ♥


I can't imagine a world without sense of feeling or touch. I wonder how he deals with that... It much be so tormenting for him. I can't even bear to see a smile out of him, or a laugh. But he still tries. Tries to make me happy. Like I'm the only one he wants to make happy. He said to find someone more suitable for me. But, there is no one like him... And I want to help him. His condition, I mean. And I will love him. Even though he can't love me. Some call it a Labor of Love; I call it hope.


Chapter 1 > The Birds and Him


Every morning went accordingly the same. Afternoon. Night. I live here, alone. In this small house. It's big enough to fit me though. Overlooking a beautiful pond. Fenced in around the perimeter. Sometimes the pond would get lily pads, sometimes Swans. It is Spring. And the birds would always fly West around my house.

I was in the forest, picking berries. When I spotted a boy sitting on the ground cross-legged and upon looking up at a textured tree, his back was to me.

“Who are you? What do you want here...?” I live far from civilization, when I was exploring the forest, I founded this house and fell in love with it. So I decided on living here now for the rest of my life. My parents are dead. They left me their best regards and as a death wish; to live life fullingly.

“Just stopping by.”

The boy answered, a bird tweeting from high up on a branch, his voice was quite and really relaxing, maybe it's because I haven't seen life here in a while. He was tracing his hand along a tree. What did he really want here...?

I ignored him and continued on searching for berries. He didn't look back at me. And when I found a good bush full of nutritious looking berries, his hand moved in front of my wide-eyed expression, he took one berry and threw it in his mouth. “They're pretty good. Didn't know they grew around here...” His lips were stained with red, and he tried cleaning it off with a simple thumb.

“Y-yes...” For the first time, it wasn't his back I was looking at. We were face-to-face now. Eyes locked to one another. Until he looked away rather shyly. “S-Sorry... I should go now, I wasn't even supposed to be here.”

There was something there, about his face and his eyes. That didn't seem normal, he didn't look like the boys I would see in town, or the kind of boys I would ever meet in my life! He was beautiful, and something sad about him... I couldn't quite put my finger on. It was like, in his eyes you could tell he wasn't happy.

I put my hand out in the gap between us, “I-I didn't get your name... I'm Nami. What about you...?” My hand was still reaching out to him, no matter how long I should wait, I'll wait for his to reach mine. It never did though...

“...Nami, call me Kai.” His hands were still at his side, into fists as he looked down at the ground.

Kai... it fits his description. But why... didn't he shake my hand? “I have to leave you now, Nami. I'll be seeing you.” My waiting hand went up to my chest and into a fist, concerned. And then I took a step forward, he didn't hear it, his back was to me and he was still moving, I tripped and flew clinging to his back for support, sagging almost to the ground. I pulled on his fabric, and he turned around with a look of hate.

“What?” He said, “Did you want me to shake your hand or something? Fine, you asked for it.” Why was he so mad all of a sudden...? Is it wrong to shake someone's hand? I'm only trying to be friendly.

He grabbed one of my hands and shook it voluntarily, slowly his expression changed to one of great suffering.

When he touched my hand... I felt...pain. As if it was the Devils touch. It hurt! He pulled away and my hand went numb, dead. What just...happened?

“I-I'm sorry, I shouldn't have. . .”

I opened up my palm and there was no color in it, it was like at the moment he touched mine, my brain signaled, Pull away! Pull away! Like touching a hot oven... I couldn't feel any warmth from his hand. But the pain was REAL.

“W-what's wrong with you...? A-are you... dead?” I looked at him with terror, and grave sympathetic eyes. My eyebrows pulled together for a frown. His expression was hard to look at, it gave me a heavy feeling to my heart.

“No... I just can't... feel anything when I touch it. So yes, might as well be dead. I'll just bring pain to everyone around me. Please, forget I ever came here.” He ran away and I couldn't follow him this time, he was gone and left me just like that.

Forget you ever came here. . .? I will NOT do such a thing!

“Kai. . . You don't mean that, do you?” I don't know why I feel the way I do, someone who can't feel anything that he touches? I saw the birds again pass above the clouds, and followed them back home.



“I know someway, somehow we'll find a way to be together.” She said.
