Yes the title is from Bleach but I felt it was appropriate since it kind of matches the scene that is about to go down in the story line.
Included: Lux, Hoom, Gil, Rosie, Lun, Cain, Arc, Shupple, Nyarth, Raine, Delin, Damaris, and Maura and mentions of Estelle, Lupe and Hon.
Okay maybe I should restate this. These are all the characters that will be in the entire post since I wrote it as one but I will split it up. The original post is 14 pages so I am splitting it up for you folks.
Part 1 of Post Includes: Lux, Hoom, Gil, Rosie, Cain, Arc, and Shupple with mentions of Estelle and Hon.
Part 2 of Post Includes: Lux, Arc, Shupple, Raine, Nyarth, Delin, Damaris, and Maura and mentions of Hoom, Estelle, and Lupe.
A LOT OF CHARACTERS!!! So please read so we get new members with old members!
Here goes the post I never wanted to ever write.
“Hoom, what I am going to say to you is from the bottom of my heart. I know I haven’t always been your best friend, however, I realized something as I pondered my many thoughts. I realized I love you Hoom. So, if there’s still some room in your heart for me….” I paused and looked into her beautiful red eyes as I began to lower my body to one knee. “You took away so much pain from all the scars I have and made me feel alive again. So here I am now down on one knee, asking you to please be my wife.”
I opened the box before her with my sparkling princess cut ring shinning as her eyes lighted up. “Hoom will you do me this great honor, will you marry me?”
Her hands covered her mouth as she gasped, her cheeks red, and her eyes showing excitement. These silent few seconds were scary but what happened next was worth the wait. Her arms quickly wrapped around my neck and she fell into my lap, I couldn’t help but fall over. Her lips met mine and we had a moment. I blinked and she pulled away smiling. I finally spoke, “H-Hoom?”
Her tail was wagging as she continued to beam. “YES! Yes I will marry you.”
“ R-really?!” Can you say shocked?
“YES I WILL MARRY YOU LUX!!!”
At that moment the biggest smile was on my face, I gently grabbed her hand and slipped the ring on her left ring finger and kissed her again in a tight embrace. Oh god this was amazing, the woman I loved she said yes. She said YES!!! “Oh Hoomy you just made me the happiest man in the world, I so am glad to call you fiancé.”
“Lux, you know I love you and I can’t wait to be your wife. This ring is so beautiful. Oh Lux I love you so much.” I just held her close as I cried tears of joy, this feeling it was indescribable. No words could do this situation justice for the feeling I felt at this moment, however, what happened next was least expected. “But there is something I need to tell you…”
There was a but? I let go as she stood up. I was nervous about this, and a gut feeling told me something was wrong. “Yes?”
She took a step back and let out a deep sigh while holding my hands, I think I am having a heart attack or something. Her hands were tightened around mine. She was nervous and I was too.
“Lux, you know I love you so much but something came up in my family. I-I don’t really know but it has to do with my dad and what happened earlier when they entered the mansion some time ago.” Her eyes were sad but she looked back at me. “I am needed as the next one in line to lead my clan, and Lux….I want you to come with me and we can start a life together.”
I stood there a bit dumbfounded. “What?”
She smiled and hugged me, “Come with me Lux, I want to be with you so you can help me with this. “ She paused. “Hon will surely follow me but I am not sure as of yet. However, this is something I need to take care of. My father isn’t a good man, you know that, but I can’t just stand here and let my younger siblings be hurt by him or my mother and who knows whomever they are working for. You know I can’t just stand here and wait.”
I blinked and looked down at the ground as my tail lowered. “Hoom you can’t be serious?”
“What about everything here at the festival? What about the rides, the photos, and the hugging and kissing? Didn’t that mean anything to you Hoom!?!”
“Of course it did, I only wanted to spend my last day here with you Lux….” The look on the her face told me otherwise. “Lux I know I am asking a lot but-“
I was scared and began pleating with her,” But what about here, the mansion? Everything we ever needed is here. I can’t just leave, I mean what about Shupple? I made a promise to her and I can’t break it. The others…I….I…I haven’t had a family like this in so long Hoom…I can’t abandon this. Please just stay here!”
She let go, my heart stopped. Her head lowered as she looked at the ring on her hand. “You’re right. I can’t ask that of you Lux. It’s selfish of me, which makes this even harder for me to do this.” She slowly slid the ring off of her finger and placed it back in my hand.
No. NO. OH GOD NO. Please. Please, just wake me up. PLEASE JUST WAKE UP. THIS CAN’T BE HAPPENING.
“Lux, it’s me not you….” Lies. You know damn well it’s me, what did I do? Oh no Hoom please don’t do this. “So please forgive me, I….I love you….but…I have to break up with you.”
Silence. I hate silence because it only states the truth.
I was holding back my tears as I lowered my hands to my side gripping the ring in my hand, “H…..H….Hoom that’s not funny…..you’re joking…hahaha…not funny Hoom.”
“I’m sorry,” Tears were already running down her cheeks. “My mind is made up, but I need to leave here and if it means ending this. Then I have no choice.”
I fell to my knees and grabbed her end of the kimono. “PLEASE Hoom don’t do this. Please, I need you! I love you! W-what did I do wrong? I’m sorry please just, I can be a better man. J-just tell me what I did wrong…I love you so much and haven’t felt this way before with any girl before me.”
I only felt her hand pet the top of my head, “You did nothing wrong Lux it just appears that our paths have gone different ways. I know this hurts you, but believe me, I am hurting inside too.” She sniffed biting her lip. “Y-you really were the best man for me and I couldn’t thank god for anyone else. So thank you.”
What was I suppose to say? Nothing I could say would change her mind, and I knew that all too well. That was something that I admired about her, yet it was tearing my heart into two. This was far worse then what happened with Estelle….
I only stood up looking at her in disbelief. “So this is goodbye…?” I muttered in a sad tone.
Smiling and composing herself to refrain from any more water works she nodded, “Yes. But we can still be friends Lux. No matter what I will always love you.” She placed her hand on her chest and felt the necklace I gave her. “Umm, I guess I should give this back…” She began to take it off.
“Don’t!” I snapped and looked at her with soft eyes. “I…I don’t want it. I guess keep it as a memento for the time we shared. I guess the saying goes, ‘Sometimes you have to let go of he ones you love right?” I gave her a fake smile and a laugh, “Well it was fun while it lasted Hoom.”
She came up to me and hugged me one last time, nevertheless, it was awkward as I held her. She came up to kiss me one last time but the pain of what was going through not only my chest but also my entire being was killing me. She only kissed my cheek as I kissed her forehead.
“Thank you Lux, you really are amazing. You are so strong and taking this better then I thought.” No I am not Hoom, I am only faking it right now. I am dying Hoom, literally. A single tear fell down her cheek as she spoke again, “Thank you for always being there Lux, you really were my one and only. You are just an amazing man and I will always treasure the times we had together till I die and I will always love you.”
“No words can describe you Hoom, but you are beautiful in every single way, and-”
I paused because the words were so hard to spit out. “-and whoever you marry later on I hope he treats you well since I won’t be able to watch you walk down the isle for me…”
“Good bye Lux….” I felt her hand leave mine as she began to walk away.
I stood there watching her as she began to slowly get smaller. This was something that I thought you would see in a movie, but this was real. However out of the darkness came a few figures. It was Gil and Lun and Rosie and a Charizard. Gil lifted his arm to Hoom who instantly grabbed it with a huge smile.
There I stood a broken man as she did that. How is pained me to see her grab his arm with such ease. Did they really ONLY have a friendship, or was my suspicions right? At this point, I don’t ever want to know.
She turned back with a small smile, while the others did the same. I raised my right hand a bit and gave a small wave. She turned around with the others and they all walked together out of the festival as they got smaller and smaller until I could not see them no more. “Goodbye Hoom….”
A Luxray, alone, standing on the top of the stairs as his one true love left him there alone. It was brief, only a matter of minutes but I was engaged to her and here I stood alone, single, and cold. I poured my entire heart into doing that, built up so much courage to ask her to be my wife, and here I am looking like a foolish idiot who got dumped as he got down on one knee. How stupid? How ignorant? So childish. This wasn’t suppose to be what I was feeling…no, I was suppose to be hand in hand with her, smiling, laughing, and bragging to everyone that I am engaged to her, but no, the worse scenario happened. It was something I never expected, not in a million years.
What hurt most is that she was gone….and she wasn’t coming back.
A broken man, my pride all on the ground, nothing. I couldn’t even get myself to cry because everything was taken from my body and broken into millions of pieces before me. As I thought about what we had, it bothered me so much.
Without even realizing it, I had built up enough energy in my left hand, “Damn it! Damn it! DAMN IT! DAMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMNNNNNNNNNN IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIITTTTTTTTTT!!!!!!!” Smashing the ground in front of me into a crater. The lighting struck the sky like something had just went wrong on an electrical wire.
I remained in the crater I had created on my hands and knees breathing heavily at the grown. Only a few small tears came down my cheeks as I tried to gasp for air.
I don’t know how long I stayed there because someone called me name, “There you are Lux. I was looking all over for you.”
I stood up and adjusted my glasses by cleaning them off in my jacket. It was Arc, I didn’t face him as I also whipped my eyes. “Whoa what happened here Lux?”
“Nothing really?” I turned with a smile. “I just punched the ground.”
He blinked and placed his hands on his hips, “You okay? You seem a bit odd-“
“Oh yeah just peachy. What’s up? How’d you find me? Better not say nose!” I chuckled at him, just putting on this fake front was hard.
He gave me that look but then gave a smile, “Well I followed a huge lighting show in the sky and low and behold here you are. I figured it was you.”
“Ah, well not many electrical gijinkas can do that.” I cracked my neck and tucked my hands into my pockets. “Where’s Shupple by the way?”
His face grew angry and I could see a fang out of the corner of his lip, “I came here to find you because Shift has her. We need to move! NOW!”
“ON IT!” With that said I followed Arc as he jumped on top of the building and tried to find Shift’s scent. As he ran, I followed behind and placed the ring I proposed to Hoom back in my pocket.
“What that?” Arc said as he looked over his shoulder.
“Nothing, but you better watch where-“ He jumped over the flagpole like it was nothing. Show off. “Never mind.”
“You’re quiet. Not you usual loud self cat!” He joked as I caught up to him and ran by his side.
“No just worried about Shupple….nothing more Arc.” I only maintained my focus in front of me as I could see he was confused. Maybe it was because I called him Arc instead of something insulting to his dog code.
Shortly after we arrived on the scene of the battle where it was 3 on 1. Arc immediately jumped first and was cornered by an Invysaur, where as my rival happened to be a Snover. I stood there looking at him. He gave me some disgusted look at spat on the ground.
“Geez, why do I always get the weak looking ones? Ivy is so damn lucky to fight the Arcanine. It would be a challenge to fight someone your weakness was too and beat them. But DAMN I always get the lousy ones.” He moaned.
I said nothing with my arms crossed as I watched him.
“What’s the matter cat got your tongue Luxray?” He taunted. “Hahaha, or is it that you are as scared of me four eyes?”
“Hmph, unlikely.” I sneered.
“What’s that?” He growled. “Want to say that again?”
“Gladly, it’s UNLIKELY that I would be scared of a pint size snow ball like you. Didn’t Team Rocket teach you manners?” I waved a finger at him, “Tisk tisk, how villains these days have gotten so undignified.
“Oh! You think you’re better then me HUH? Is that is?”
“No, it’s just that I KNOW I am better then you.”
He hit me with an Ice Shard as I went flying backwards. “HA big words for a cocky kitty cat. Don’t worry though, I will kill you slowly and painfully. You see Team Rocket enhanced my skills and I am even more powerful then a regular Snover, and even greater then an Abamosnow as well. Don’t under estimate me you damn fool. Shift has ordered us to kill you and once I am done with you…” He looked at Arc, who was on the defense. The Snover only smiled and turned to me as I stood up whipping the blood from my mouth. “I will kill your friend over there and then watch Shift kill Shupple. Power is what made us men even stronger then ever thanks to Team Rocket..”
I only gave a sly smile and shook my head. “Pfft if you say so, but its okay, I don’t practice what I preach either sometimes. So I am going to ask you, what’s your name?”
“Hmph why should you care? It wouldn’t mean anything to a dead man.”
“Lux. My name is Lux.” I told him.
“Whatever, my name is Snow.” The Snover finally revealed.
“Ahh I see, you said you were going to kill me slowly and painfully right?” I quickly appeared in front of him with my hand and claws dug deep into his belly. “You see, I am not in a good mood right now. Actually, I am in a foul mood and being called kitty and four eyes kinda topped it off.” I twisted my fist as he began to cough up blood. “Want to know a secret? I don’t give a damn about your power because I know I am strong enough to kill you with mine. Like you said, ‘Don’t under estimate me fool.” I looked him right in the eyes with my markings on my face as I gave me a smile. “Let’s end this quickly shall we?”
“Ulp.” Snow gulped.
With a small smack down that didn’t last more then a minute Snow fell to the ground before me as I watched Shupple and Shift go at it. I had not intentions to fight since she appeared to be okay.
“Told you I would be quick…..not even worth killing.” I spat on him as he lay there barely breathing.
Arc came over to be a bit beaten. “You’re done already Lux?”
“Yeah something like that?” I grinned at him, “Damn Arc he got you good.”
“Shut up let’s go help Shupple.” Arc glared as he took off.
Before we knew it, we broke in from the protect force field that was around Shupple she had defeated Shift and his minions, who I thought were near death quickly retreated with Shift and disappeared.
Once Shupple gained consciousness, we both were worried about her. Arc just held her close as she tried to stand up. As she did, he caught her. I only stood there and watched with no emotion at the painful reminder of what happened only moments before this fight.
“I am so glad you are alright Shupple, but don’t go off and scare me like that ever again got that?” Arc asked of her.
“Sorry but this was something I needed to do alone.” Shupple only replied.
“Really because last I checked I was your boyfriend and I did tell you I would protect you from him?” Arc sighed as he kissed he forehead, “You mean to much to me Shupple, I love you.”
“Silly dog….I love you too. Sorry to make you worry.” Shupple blushed and buried her face into his chest. “Lux I want to thank you…where did he go?”
*sighs* Well there you go, the sad break up and it was hard typing it as I cried the entire time. But believe me, the waterworks are far from over. This was the only way I felt comfortable typing this post and I wasn't sure how to really do it so again this is my heart speaking through Lux from my own experiences and from what I have seen from others. That was 7 pages, the next 7 pages will be in part two. Its all done but I didn’t want you to read a long 14 page post so I split it into two. So the next part will make you cry just as much. Meh….anyway feedback would be good…thanks!
