Holding back: Chapter 19Touko's POV
It had been a week since I found the boy. He hasn't spoken since the night I found him. He won't speak to me and he won't even look at somebody else.
Ghetsis tried to act normal around him but the little child would just run away. N was also unable to talk with the little child. And why was I calling him child? I should think about a name for him..
.. Who is disturbing me at this time? It's like 2 AM.. I sat straight up in my bed and looked at the little boy. Nothing seemed wrong and he was still sleeping.
I swung my legs over the edge of the bed and quietly stood up. I didn't want to wake Ghetsis up. I wasn't allowed to walk around the castle on my own and certainly not at night.
I walked on my toes to the door, slowly opened it and peeked around the corner. N's face was inches away from mine, my cheeks coloured bright red.
'What are you doing here N?'
'I want to show you something.'
'Can't we do this tomorrow?'
He grabbed my hand and wanted to take m
Reaching out: PrologueIt has been 2 years since the incident at N's castle. The thought of all what happened still haunts me in my nightmares. I don't know where he is, and to be honest I don't care. I couldn't be what he wanted and he couldn't give me what I wanted. After everything he never tried to find me. Not that that would have been easy, because my mother insisted to move. So we moved, to a small private village. No Bianca, no Cheren and also no Touya.
These 2 years has been liberating. Hah, it's funny that I use that word. So much meaning in such a little word. I kept training my dear Pokemon Sunshine, Rose and Winston. I never caught any more Pokemon. The thought about catching Pokemon just made me scared. What if Ghetsis came back, what if he locked them up again. I just couldn't take the risk. I would give my life for these three and I already had to fulfil that promise multiple times.
The sudden sound of my laptop woke me up from my thoughts. Bianca was still talking about next week. They were
Holding back: Chapter 18Touko's POV
N.. The boy looked at me like he had seen a ghost. And what was he talking about? Did I meet him before? And he had said that I hate Ghetsis.. But Ghetsis is my fiancé, how could I hate him?
We just finished dinner, it was the worst dinner I had ever joins, there was no conversation, no happy faces and the meals were terrible. And now I was walking back to my room. Once I entered it I saw a small package lying on the bed with a small note.
I took the package and read the note.
You need a pyjama, my doll.
A chill went down my spine. Doll.. I had just met him and I already hated his nickname for me.
I undid the package from its paper and saw a short and a shirt.
At least he gave me a decent pyjama. I sighed and looked around the room. It was boring and old. There were no bright colours and the only light came from a dusty old lamp.
I needed to get away from this room; it was slowly swallowing me in its depressing mood.
I put on my pyjama and wal
You Were Not An Aquarium BoySea-glass became your bones,
brine your blood, and seashells
melded into your skin.
You were not quite an ocean
when you said "This is your sign to love me."
My body was like a building;
tall, cold, almost unbreakable.
I was metallic and sharp,
towering over your waters.
I remember taking your hand in mine,
conch and coral shells scrubbing
my skyscraper wrists, and laughing
about how one day you would
submerge every last bit of me.
Your lips, riddled with argonauts,
found my cheek and I cringed
at the coarseness.
You asked if they bothered me
and I finally told you "I
think I love you."
