In your very home home, You have kept a marble, You spent your time sculpturing your art and never missed an opportunity. You made it very detailed as possible as you can, showing that it was made by an artist who's dedicated their life just to make a single beautiful art such as this.
You backed away alittle to look at your masterpiece, Pride went up to you as it was absolute gorgeous. Approaching, You rested your hand and felt it, A smile across your face and sighed:
"I wish you were real" You said out loud to yourself, But then started laughing. It's kinda funny that your talking to a in-animate object, Your not expecting it to reply back to you or something.. But then, That would be cool. Imagine your work of art talking to you and has a life of it's own, Oh how you dreamed badly to make it happen.
"Maybe someday.. You and i will be together.. Well, Goodnight." You walked off in the opposite direction and went inside your house. Since you don't live alone, With parents of course, You tried to not try to wake them up as you walked towards your room.
Upon arriving you then immediately sat on your bed and looked out in the window, Ah, Look at that! A shooting star! They say if you wish upon it, It'll come true.. You closed your eyes and linked your arms together and wished upon it.
'I wish that he was real..! Please.. Just please..! Even if it will only last one day.. I want to be with him just this once!' You opened your eyes, You looked down in disappointment, No matter what, It'll never come true, It's impossible, Really. You then thought of sleeping it off and drifted off to sleep for another same old day awaiting you.
"[Name]! Name, Dear!" Someone called, It was your mother calling out your name. You groaned in your sleep as you finally gave in and stood up rubbing your eyes and yawning, Stretching alittle and stood up, "Coming, Mother!"
Walking towards the hallway you heard your parents laughing and talking to someone, It must be a guest or a friend; Curious, You then looked at the kitchen to see someone that shocked you and widely eye-ing the stranger in pure surprise.
"Ah, [Name], I see your awake, This fellow was just making a friendly conversation with us, That's all." Your father said smiling. Your attention stll at the stranger he then pulled out his hand to you in a friendly greeting. "Hello, I'm afraid we haven't met." The stranger said giving a smile, You slowly nod your head at him and looked at your mom.
"Your friend is so nice, Dear. You should invite him at our home sometime." Your mother said. "But he's not my-" You got cut off by your father: " Now, Now, No need to lie."
"Um, May i please borrow [Name] alone?" The man asked as he pulls you outside to talk privately. "I don't know who you are or what your doing here, Sir, But I-"
"I know your confuse right now to what's going on but please hear me out." He said, You decided to listen to him, Full ears. "I'll tell you when it's time but go out with me first."
"Well, I think you didn't hear me. Again, Will you go out with me?"
"T-that's happening too fast I..! I don't even know your name!" You said as your cheeks were turning pink. The man noticed and apologizes, "My apologize, Just call me Arthur." He replied. "A-arthur.. Okay the-" And after that you were pulled by him to where he has picked the place the both of you will be going.
"Say.. Where are we going exactly..?" You looked up at him in wonder. "At the park, You like that place do you not?"
"How.. Did you know?" You noticed him look at you for a moment and gave a soft warming smile at you. "You told me about it." He replied, You gave him the look of confusion. You.. Told him? Since when? You have never seen him before your life but.. He somehow resembles something that you cannot put a finger on it.
The both of you were now at the park, He pulls his hand once more to you and accepted, The two of you began walking, People that you and Arthur pass by has thought that the two of you were couples, You didn't like eyes all over you; "You seem.. Confident even though we just met, Why is that?" You decided to make a conversation to interrupt this silence between the two of you. "You might not know but there's really nothing to be nervous about when your near the person you know." He replied back.
"W-what do you mean? Are you.. Trying to give me some sort of clue or yet.. A puzzle for me to solve?" Arthur chuckled as a response from your questions hitting him. Sun almost setting down, You didn't really notice it's afternoon already, Time passes very fast. You noticed that Kiku was staring at the setting sun and gripped your hand, He turns to look at you with sadness.
"So did you already find out?" He looks at you, "I promised that I'll tell you what's going on so i brought you here. But i'm afraid your kinda too slow solving the pieces together." He added. "Arthur.. I don't understand.. Why are you talking like this?" You began to get worried about the man but then he caresses your cheek, His touch was cold.
He pulls your hand and puts something in your palm, "It's almost time. I better say my goodbye to you."
"Goodbye? W-wait..! Will i see you again? A-are you leaving forever?" He laughs. "My, My, Worried about me leaving you? Heck, Don't worry, Love; Now close your eyes" He ordered as you did so and closed your eyes and waited for his next command. He gave one last look at you and breathed one last time.
"Open your eyes"
You opened them to reveal that he's now gone, Not one trace can be seen of Arthur anywhere but only this gift that he left you.
"I now remember.."
What did you remember?
