3. Love lost, Love found

It’s a cold autumn morning. The leave’s falling from the trees everytime the wind’s touching them. A good-looking woman sat inside her apartment on a red couch. Her hair was as dark as the coffee she held in her hands.
“What a wonderful weather today.” she sighed sarcastly.
She gazed at her radio.
Why not?, she thought and turned it on.
“Good afternoon Ladies and Gentlemen! I’m Dean Dellas.” it said. “And here’s a song lots of people out there’ll like to hear. So snuggle up to your love and listen to this beautiful song by Rascal Flatts. Enjoy.

‘I can take the rain on the roof of this empty house
That don’t bother me
I can take a few tears now and then and just let 'em out
I’m not afraid to cry every once in a while
Even though going on with you gone still upsets me
There are days every now and again I pretend I’m ok
But that’s not what gets me’”


Kimiko gasped. She knew that song well. It’s the song she had heard when Raimundo kissed her the first time.
When they were back at the temple after she’d won a Showdown against Wuya, he came into her “room”, smiled at her, leaned down and kissed her. The mp3-player of her PDA had played the song in the background.
She remembered the words he wispered her into her ear when they sat under an old tree in the meditation garden and looked at the silverblue shining fullmoon: “I love you.”

The Kimiko in the present began to cry at the memories.
“I’m not missing him, I’m not missing him. I…”
More memories came into her mind.
Raimundo had taken her out on a date in a cinema in the nearest city.
It’s a new version of “Romeo and Juliette” but at the end they’re running away together. When the dragon of wind noticed his girlfriend’s crying, he leaned down and promised her with a soft voice “We’ll do the same if someone’s trying to break us apart.”

She put the empty cup on the small table next to the couch, grapped a cushion and hid her face in it.

”What hurts the most
Was being so close
And having so much to say
And watching you walk away
And never knowing
What could have been
And not seeing that loving you
Is what I was tryin’ to do”


Raimundo turned on the radio and walked into the kitchen to make himself something to eat for dinner. He looked out of the window and smiled. That was his weather, his element, his power.
“I love the autumn. Back in Brazil there’s no autumn.” The dragon of wind told his flatmate.
Carlo the tomcat yawned lazily.
“I see you don’t like it. Well, you don’t like any weather. It maybe could mean you have to go outside and move, couldn’t it?”
He giggled and stroked the tomcat’s red and yellow checked head.
He entered the livingroom while eating a sandwich and stopped when he heard a well known melody.
No, that couldn’t be!

”It’s hard to deal with the pain of losing you everywhere I go
But I’m doin’ It
It’s hard to force that smile when I see our old friends and I’m alone
Still Harder
Getting up, getting dressed, livin’ with this disregret
But I know if I could do it over
I would trade give away all the words that I saved in my heart
That I left unspoken”


Carlo rubbed his head at Rai’s leg to be stroked again but when nothing happened he walked away, his head and tail raised high in the air.
Raimundo’s eyes were wide in shock – and in shame.
His mind replayed what had happened the last time he saw her, his love.
Kimiko and he were standing in front of the temple. He’d packed to leave every moment. This time for ever.
Kimiko’s crying.
“Why?!” she yelled under tears. “Why?!” The Japaneze couldn’t stop saying this word. It seemed to be impossible for her mind to understand what was going on.
“I’ve told you before it’s over.” Raimundo said, trying to speak with a cold voice.
He turned his face away. Rai didn’t want to see the person he cared most crying, especially if
he caused it.
When he walked away his heart stuck to Kimiko.
‘It’s the best for the two of us. I’m sorry.’ he thought while thinking of the reason why he left.
Kimiko’s father hated Raimundo because he thought Kimiko deserved someone better. To tell the truth, Raimundo thought the same way. After all the time they’d spent together it’s like a miracle the beautiful raven haired girl still loved him.
Him, the boy who caused only problems everywhere he is. Him, the self-centered guy who didn’t even know what he wants to do in his life.
Kimiko. Kimiko. Kimiko. Her name echoed in his mind. Memories with her. A time in his life when he’s really happy.
Loud voices appeard in his head. Omi. Clay. Dojo. Master Fung. His parents. Kimiko’s father. But no Kimiko. He just could hear the song again.

”What hurts the most
Is being so close
And having so much to say
And watching you walk away
And never knowing
What could have been
And not seeing that loving you
Is what I was trying to do”


“I…I have to get outta here.” The Brazilian said loud to himself, threw the half eaten sandwich into the bin, grapped his jacket and opened the door to left his appartment as quickly as possible.

New tears flooded her eyes again.
“I have to find him and it doesn’t matter what I have to do to do so.”
With that she run into her bedroom, picked up her jacket from her bed and flung open the door to leave the appartment.
The radio continued playing the song.

”What hurts the most was being
so close
And having so much to say
And watching you walk away
And never knowing
What could have been
And not seeing that loving you
Is what I was trying to do”


Blue eyes looked shocked into green eyes.
They were living next to each other’s door for years without noticing it.
“I miss you.”
Noone knew who said it first.
Cuz the doors were standing wide open, they could here both radios play the last part of their song.

”Not seeing that loving you
That’s what I was trying to do”


Fire and wind hugged each other and leaned in for a kiss.
“I love you.” both wispered at the same time.

(Happy) End
