To A New Dimension And The Unforgettable Past
My breath came in short gasps as I tried to stay ahead.
Sparing only a second to look behind, I turned back quickly to focus on the road in front of me. People were staring, but I didn't care; I was running like there was no tomorrow. Even if I wasn't running, they would probably be staring anyways, what with my messy hair and the tan trench coat that I was wearing.
Don't get me wrong; I love my hair and my clothes very much, but a grungy, tattered, obviously-sewn-back-together-multiple-times trench coat and hair that's been streaked at least 5 different shades of blonde, brown, red, and black do attract a fair amount of attention most of the time, both good and bad.

your love does not,
and you reach out to me,
and hold me where I can't hold you.
Not my vow counts,
but yours alone
sealed with blood -
your grace is enough.
"I have loved you with an everlasting love;
Therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you."
I will greatly rejoice in the LORD,
My soul shall be joyful in my God;
For He has clothed me

Meeting her glare head on, Kaede's icy cold stare showed no response to her childish anger. "Give it a rest Rika. Why would I ever want to buy you chocolates? For something as disgusting as Valentine's Day too. It's a human holiday; why are you so insistent on celebrating it?"
"Because it's for us, as in you and me." She hissed, turning her head to the side as she broke off eye contact with Kaede. She had never been able to hold his gaze for too long without looking away; there was always something in those deep emerald eyes that whispered at you to walk away, to run, or to hide in fear of him. She shuddered involuntarily as she looked around the dark alley.
