I’m One of the muses, A common wood nymph roaming around Parnassus, Happy with my little sweet pea. With her delicate, fragrant flowers Carried on long, slim stalks, She captivated me. I ran to her flaming with desire. I am flaming. Burning Blazing with desire. Too hot for my sweet pea. Because she’s so delicate, So delicate for me. As I touch her, she transformed into ashes. I burnt her. And out of a haze, you were formed. Like smoke given out by fire. A fireweed that sprang up in the burnt over area. A replacement, I thought. You quenched my thirst. Suffuse my hunger. My desire. I came to you for a crown And you gave me a kingdom. You made me eat on a golden plate And drink from your cup of diamonds. But like a common pitcher plant, Cut your base open And there you’ll find my body’s remains trapped inside. A pitfall in the middle of the forest. I will name you Venus? The goddess with a seducing brilliant red trap. Open to all beings that needs nurturing. Show your bosom and all will crave for your milk. From a butterfly, you turned me to an ant. When I brushed only slightly against your skin, You closed within an instant. Rigid spines on the margins of you blades interlock tightly. As soon as I was trapped, You digested me. Used me as a nutrient material. I know this is about to last for only a week. By the time your leaf reopens, You’ll be reedy for other sufferers. Trapped inside, I accepted my fate. Then there she came one spring day. My little delicate sweet pea. Now a spring beauty in full bloom. A low perennial herb. With narrow, succulent leaves And loose cluster of white and pink flowers. But your leaf has closed. I cannot escape.

Broken Destiny: Chapter 69  

2/01/2008

“Yeah, I guess Ayaya has something to do with it.” Miki replied.



“Yeah, I guess Ayaya has something to do with it.” Miki replied.

“Who’s Ayaya? Aya?” Rika was sure that Miki was pertaining to Aya Matsuura but it’s the first time that she heard Miki called her in that nickname. “What happened? Wh…” Rika was suddenly cut off by Miki.

“My sister wanted to see you tomorrow since its Saturday and we have no classes. She wanted to give you something; I guess it will be the surprise of your life.”

“And why would I believe you after all those nasty things that you confessed?”

“Because, it’s my sister who will meet you, and not me, and besides, if I will do something nasty again, I wouldn’t have confessed to you earlier right? So, are you going or not?”

“I’ll think about it.”

“Ok, thanks. She said to meet her up at 1 pm in our restaurant.”

Rika tried to sleep after her conversation with Miki. Miki’s attitude changed suddenly after she talked to Aya. There must be something that Aya knew, or Reina knew. She felt like her friends knew something that she still didn’t know. She made up her mind, she will go and meet Hitomi tomorrow.

………….

[I]“Why are you following me… Who are you anyway?”

“I’m… I’m Rika…. I really missed you a lot!”

“Rika? I’m sorry, I don’t know you…..” [/I]

Maki walked away and she tried to run after her but she couldn’t reach her. A piece of paper flew right in front of her.
[I] Your loved one will hurt you deeply. You must accept it so as to be happy again. [/I]

Rika shouted Maki’s name over and over again. She threw away the piece of paper and tried to catch up with Maki. She shouted her name over and over again and then, she saw Maki got hit by a speeding car..

[I] MAKI!!!”[/I]

Rika immediately ran towards the bleeding body. She was glad that Maki’s still breathing.

“Maki, it’s me, Rika… I’m your… girlfriend. I’m going to find some help.” [/I] Rika managed to say in between sobs.

[I] “Gi…girl…friend?”[/I]

Rika tried to get up to get some help but Maki held her hands firmly, as if signaling her to stay.

[I] “Hey! Why are you holding her hands like that? I’ll beat you to pieces if you lay one finger on her!”

“Miki? What the heck are you talking about? Don’t just stand there and call an ambulance!”

“Let’s go, just leave her alone.” Miki tried to pull Rika away from Maki but Rika resisted. Rika’s hand slipped from Miki’s grasps, making her fall down, her lips falling right on to Maki’s. She blushed for a second and remembered that Maki was injured. She pushed herself up so she would add no more injuries to the person beneath her.

“Maki are you… al… right…” Rika trailed off. The person beneath her was not Maki. It’s Yoshizawa Hitomi
[/I]

………….
“Geez, what’s with that dream?” Rika got up from her bed and went downstairs to get a drink in their kitchen. Does her dream want to tell her something? She decided to let it pass this time and get enough sleep. She’ll try to analyze it tomorrow morning.

……………

Morning came and Rika was woken up by her phone ringing.

“Moshi-moshi… Do you have anything to do this morning?” Aya’s voice boomed right into her ears right after she pressed the accept button.

“Ehh? I don’t know. I just woke up… I’m somewhat slow in processing information this time.” Rika sleepily replied. Aya took a deep breath and repeated what she said, while adding some information that made Rika’s eyes opened wide.

[i] “I’m going to tell you what happened yesterday.[/i]
