The next day on Sunday I quickly woke up as I took no time to stretch or yawn but rather jump from the bed to the floor. That was not the best chose of action for I nearly fell over my small dresser that had a white door on the top and bottom. Then in the middle it was a light blue the small door it had was also blue upon the right side. The next thing I did was run over to my clothes rack. I tried to think of what to wear with an over hyper mood of not being able to stand still. It was to the point as I seem to rock back and forth. There was so much I could pick from. There where blacks on the right end of the close rake and on the left red cloths. I went through the black clothes first. “No that will make me seem to dark or emo” I thought to myself not wanting to give Airun the wrong impression. Then my hand stopped on a grey blouse and a white top to go over it with a slightly darker shade of grey for my skirt. I then went through my hair ribbons. I quickly pulled out two white ribbons. I gently placed the bigger one in my hair and tied it back in a pony tail. The smaller one I tied gently around my neck like a classical chocker that one could get at the mall. The neck tie had a small bell on it which seems to look like a cat’s collar in some sense.
I then looked over to my pet bird Link who is a Peach faced Sea green or Aqua Turquoise lovebird. “What do you think Link?” I said with a gentle smile and twirled in the outfit in a circular motion. Link started to tweet very swiftly to show how much he liked the outfit. “Link, do you want to come with me?” I asked as I placed one figure on the small bird’s head and scratched his head as he slanted it to the right. The bird flapped its wings like a humming bird and, with its little white head covered, that also had light code of peach on it. His small blue body it seemed shown how happy he was to go with me.
“Tessa” I heard my brother say as he knocked on my door. “Big brother” I said with a bright smile and opened the door and peered my head out of the door and then let him in to my room. “You seem very happy today” he said as he ruffled my blonde hair. “I am Oni San” I said as I grasped him in a hug. “You do know that you have to be back before seven” he said in response. “Yes I know, but I have to hurry” I said rushing out of the door.
Link followed out my open window because well I sort of left him by mistake. “I am sorry. Link I guess, I just did not want brother to integrate me, besides brother does not need me tagging along with his date Miss Clara Masters. You know Nixon told me yesterday that there were two men who wished to speak with me after his date.” I said as I walked along the side walk a little worried about meeting new people.
It took me about two hours to get to the park. When I got there was Airun, I turned away to look at the left as I noticed I was staring at him. “Link you go play with the wild birds” I said lifting my head and trying to hint off I wanted to be alone with Airun. I looked back up and took a deep breath. “Why am I acting this way” I thought to myself breathing a second deep breath. Little to my surprise Airun was the first to speak. “Hello Tessa, how are you today?” he asked with a smile that seemed to make the sky glisten and sun burn more fiercely with the puffy clouds standing out like white cotton candy. “I am well, so Airun what do you do for a living” I asked. “I work with my uncle at a company.” He said in reply as he locked his arms around me still he keep that positive and certain look upon his face. “Airun, tell me more about yourself” I said getting very happy to the point I giggled.
“I can’t say, Tessa Heartlen, the reason I came to see you again was because I like you a lot.” He said to me but with pain stricken eyes. “I like you a lot to” I said in reply but held on even tighter to him not wanting to let go. “That is... that is why… I have to tell you good bye” he said to me. “No Airun please do not go” I said with many tears in my eyes and barred my head in his blue shirt.
“I have, to” he said as he lifted my head and tenderly kissed my forehead and he lightly lifted my chin and kissed my lips softly my face turned a dark red. “Tessa, no matter what I will always be with you in spirit and soul” he said trying to assure me things would be alright then he let me go hesitantly as if he knew he wanted to hold on tighter but refused to let himself give into whatever hidden emotion he had at that moment.
“Wait if you must go!!!! I… want you have my dearest gem, I want you to have Link”. I said to Airun and my bird looked at me with shocked eyes and squeaked in dismay as his feathers puffed up in a fuzz ball. “Funny that bird’s name is one I know, but I cannot accepted that” he said to me. “No I insist” I said in reply. “No Tessa I cannot take your bird from you” he said. “I want you to have him” was my answer. “If I took him he would miss you. I saw it following you from the moment you got here. There for I can tell you treasure it very much” he said to me as he creased my cheek and I let my hand touch his. “Airun then take this” I said taking out the white ribbon in my hair and I blushed a light pink as I handed it to him. “I have many others” was my next answer. “Are you sure” he said to me. “I am” I said with a nod of my head. Airun then took the ribbon from my hand and he tied it under his trench coat on his left arm. He nodded his head to show his appreciation of the gift I had given him.
Airun then looked in my eyes for a few moments. “Tessa, I really do like you, but this is for the best, and another thing Tessa I will keep this ribbon always” he said to me. “Airun will, you come back one day” I asked sincerely as my teeth tightly and brutally bit my lower lip. “I do not know Tess” he said to me uncertain. “Airun, about what you said about always being by my side, do you promise?” I asked slightly worried. “I promise no matter what” he said to me with an honest humble smile. His words seem so sincere and truthful, as if full of trust. “A promise is a promise” I said in reply and smiled cheerfully back.
I sat down and watched him as he left. A part of me felt I should run after him. I felt my stand up for a brief moment and I walked a few steps. I placed my head down as I forced myself to sit still and watch him walk off. For I respected him too much that I wanted him to make his own choose rather than interfere on it. I felt a sharp pain in my chest. I did not understand why. However for the first time… I wanted to cry for someone. “Airun … I will wait for you” I said in a whisper as my dear new friend walked off. In the back of mind I felt my hand clinch to my face but on the outside I forced a smile. I did not want him to hurt because of me. I felt my hand tremble and I placed it behind my back to hide it. Then with my free hand I waved to him as if this blood written feeling was not there.
“Airun … I think I might…” I would not let my inner thought finish. I could no longer see him and so I finally let myself fall to my knees and break down. My tears fell as if they were from a lake. The bird chirped at me as it tried to cheer me up but no smile or end of pain would come to my face. “Link please go home, I am fine” I said to him my voice clearly not speaking the truth. The water works of my light blue showed I was clearly not okay. Link sat on my shoulder and nuzzled his small white head on my face. Link then noticed I clearly wanted to be alone so he ran off home.
