i am muy lazy to customize/update my tumblr WAAAAAAH
My eyes fluttered briefly. My breathing was shallow as my eyes painstakingly adjusted to the dimness of my surroundings. But what worried myself the most was who am I? (stick in your name i took mines out haha)
That was my mind’s automatic response to my conscious inquiry. But on the other hand, that name I recognized vaguely compared to the other one that floated across my mind. Aki.
My body, as if on instinct, nodded to the name. That must have been what I was called. However, where was I?
In the gloomy darkness, I felt my way around. Rough stones and edges scathed against my skin. Caves? Both my body and mind were familiar to the objects that surrounded me, but the one thing it wasn’t familiar with was myself. I could not remember anything. When I tried to recall what I had been doing last or how I had ended up in these caves, nothing came up but a severe migraine. Feels like I’ve forgotten something important..who I am probably haha. Ironic.
I merely brushed the itching feeling of forgetfulness aside. All I knew was that my name was “Aki”. My memories were lost, so I just needed to somehow get them back.
I continued to feel around in the darkness until I saw a thin streak of light ahead. I slowly neared it until it grew into a luminous, red glow. I had finally reached the end of the cave, and when I stepped out, I felt a cold shudder pass through me. What I saw made me gasp.
Magma oozed in every unmistakable space through ragged spikes of rock and stalagmites. In an instant, the word popped in my mind. Hell Five.
I was in hell. Hell meant that I had fallen. Turning my head around on a reflex to check my back, I saw wings. Wings chained by mysterious characters I understood as “Sin”, “Hell”, “Fallen”, “Repent” and “Punishment”. I’m fallen angel.
What I recognized myself as wasn’t what was shocking but the fact that I was a fallen angel. Even worse, I couldn’t even remember what I had done to fall. What sin had I committed? I tried to move my wings, but they were immovable. In the midst of reorienting myself, someone walked towards me.
My eyes rose up from the stained ground as I took a clear view of the person before me. “Uhh,” I croaked, “who..are you?”
“Ki Kwang. That’s what they call me anyways. I’m a prophet and by the looks of it, you must be a fallen angel?” chirped the blond guy before me who was wrapped in a red and black checkered cloak. His eyes were almond shaped and his skin flawlessly smooth and white.
I stared at him wide-eyed and replied with a nod.
“Well, I’ve got a prophecy for you. Listen closely.
You will stand alone
through hell or fire
no matter how dire
the choice is yours alone
choose your fate
may it not be too late.”
That was my prophecy? Was it just me or did it sound full drastic and hellish? I peered at the so-called prophet called Ki Kwang. “Are you sure you gave me the right prophecy? Sounds like total rubbish.”
“Of course it’s the right one Miss I-lost-my-memories and don’t ask me why I know because I won’t tell you. Wait, it’s because I am a prophet who knows the future, duh!” he howled out in spasms of laughter. He mat be a prophet but sure didn’t look or act like one.
“Err. Okay.” I warily acknowledged him. “Do you know how I could get my memories back?” He was a prophet so he ought to have some type of clue.
“Why yes I do. As a matter of fact, close your eyes right now and tell me what you see and hear.”
I did as he told because there wasn’t much to lose if he was some untrustworthy person. My mind became serenely calm, and the first thing I head was a small, young voice.
My thoughts reacted to the phrase happily. I recognized the phrase as Heaven. Cloud Nine was Heaven. The childlike voice matured into a young male’s voice who called out my name.
Yet, there was no familiar reaction to the voice except for the name it called out. There was that itching feeling again as if I had forgotten something important.
“You can open your eyes now. Tell me what you saw and heard,”
Ki Kwang commanded.
I blinked a couple of times and then spoke. “Cloud Nine.” I didn’t want to say anything about the voice calling me for it seemed too private.
“The answer to retrieving your memories back is to enter Cloud Nine, also known as Heaven. But you are a fallen angel, so it would be no easy task to re-enter the home that was once yours. Your wings can not fly and the only way to get back up to heaven is The Stairway to Heaven. The title itself is pretty self explanatory is it not? And that’s about all I can help you with fallen angel. Leave this place first by taking the ladder behind you and good luck!”
With an unexpected cheerful goodbye, Ki Kwang the prophet threw his cloak around himself and vanished. What a strange prophet..Ladder first then I’ll try to make sense of his words.. The Stairway to Heaven huh..
This is a SHORT story so there won’t be many posts but you’ll see a variety of characters haha don’t be surprised when you see whomever tehehe
^^ hope you guys enjoy it. tryin to return to my stories but i don’t think ill be completing the other ongoing stories on my tumblr - fyi
She looked away from him. The pain was too much, and she could only wade through oceans of lies until she drowned.
How could i keep going like this..But i have to make it right for them. I had never belonged here and had broken apart Ki and Meredith. I’m the only thing keeping them apart. Dawn and twilight cannot be kept apart. Delayed yes, but not for eternity.
Tohru stood up chin high and wiped away the tears from her face.
It’s time to make things right.
She was overly confident that she knew exactly how Ki felt.
His love for Meredith.
She had been so blind when she’d first met the two of them.
Ki would never have any feelings for her. His heart was and always had been only for Meredith.
Heartbroken but determined, Tohru looked up at the night sky; the twinkling lights seemed to laugh at her or pity her. She didn’t ponder which of the two it was and stepped away into the shadows.
random names i stuck in as characters c:
