Pairings: take a wild guess... chances are you'll be right.
Warnings: Ummm... angst? Dunno what else... No one dies!

It's been five months since
the war ended now. I've been living on this island for... two months now.
I take the boat back to the mainland long enough to get food every once
and a while... I never stay. It gets worse every time I go.
Everything I see I wish I could show him. I see tourists, I want to point
them out to him and tell him how obvious they are and why. I see kids
playing in the surf and wish I could get him to play a game with me that
involves the waves. I watch people build things in the sand and wish I
could watch him as he makes something. I see the movie theater kiosk and
some of the movies I wouldn't mind seeing... If he were there. I see lovers
walking hand in hand and I wish it was us. God it hurts.
I mean, there isn't even an us. You left for school then once you'd been
gone a month I'd realized that you didn't care and shoved out on my own.
You told me once that you were my friend. You didn't even ask me if I
wanted to come to what ever damned school you went to.
My fingers clench around the wheel of the boat. I couldn't take it. I
got to the mainland, got my shit and left. It's friggin' ten o'clock at
night and I'm making the crossing back to the island. I'm not even going
to get there for another hour. Another hour until I can surrender to the
oblivion known as sleep. Atleast there, I can still dream.
The boat bounces over a set of waves and I shift my weight to accomidate
the motion. This thing hauls ass but I can't outrun the memories. I remember
you coming up behind me as I sat looking at the ocean. My braid shifted
slightly in the breeze, my shirt flapped against my sides, my mind lost
in the beauty around me. I remember thinking about you in it too... next
to me. Then you came up behind me. You surprised me by sitting down and
joining me, asking what I saw. I told you and you just sat there silent.
After a while you got up, pulled me up with you and told me that we had
a mission. So much for the peaceful feeling.
I thought you were my best friend Heero... but then you callously up and
left. If it weren't for my prying I wouldn't ever have found out what
school you went to. St. Gabriels. That hurt... You leaving left me with
a hole. I kinda figured after the war that maybe you liked me enough to
try and do something. Ask me out maybe. I would've refused of course,
but now... Now I'd accept it in a heart beat.
I feel as alone inside as I am on the open water speeding back to the
island. There can't be another boat around for miles.
The time went fast... Wallowing in self pity really passes the time I
guess. It's time to pull the boat up at the dock. It's in pretty good
shape for being an old wooden thing from the tourist days of the island.
Stupid bio chemists... Bought the island for a song cause of their carelessness.
Contaminated the whole island with 2 leaky barrels of lab goo and it takes
me a techie wet dream, 5 scientists whom are supposed to be dead, a plane,
a gas mask and a whole mess of other shit to decontaminate the island
so I can live here. Alone. With the ghosts of those that died all those
years ago. Like they're a lively bunch.
I'm so alone... The boat is tied up and I have an entire ghost town and
no where to go. This sucks. I crumple to my knees on the old stone waterfront
and cry. God this sucks. Why did they all have to leave me alone?
