Kita stepped out of the bathroom, fresh from the shower. Her wings dripped water as she went to the counter to find a comb. She held the offending bramble snagged in her hair up so she could get a look at it. She'd tried to get out in the shower, but it was stuck fast. None of the other girls complained about this kind of thing. Why did this always happen to her?
"There's a sexy girl."
Sarin's voice caused Kita to jump and spin around. Her wings sent everything on the counter crashing to the ground. Sarin lay on the bed naked, looking at Kita suggestively.
"A little jumpy, Babe?" She giggled.
Ignoring her, Kita, fretting, bent down to pick up all the stuff she'd sent flying.
"Leave it, we'll get it later," Sarin offered crawling to the edge of the bed. She reached out and touched Kita's leg, causing her to leach sideways, hit the counter, and fall over backward.
"What's wrong with you?" Sarin asked pointblank. "You're still not upset about that conversation with Amber, are you?"
"I...Ah..." Kita stammered, "Now that you mention it yes I am. How could you just put that out there without asking me if it was ok?"
"What does it matter? She should know she's not the only one who has problems in that department. It helps ease the stress to know you're not alone." Sarin explained clinically.
"That's fine, when it's not you. It's bloody embarrassing to me." Kita snarled.
"Ok, I'm sorry. Next time I promise I'll ask first before helping a friend in need. Better?"
Sarin rolled over and ran her hands down the length of her body inviting Kita to come play.
Kita recoiled, "no..." She shook her head.
Sarin sighed heavily, "What's wrong with you? It's been months. I thought you were excited to have me back?"
"I am," Kita whispered.
"Funny way of showing it."
Kita picked herself up off the ground and headed for a chair. Along the way she grabbed the bear, Sarge had been carrying around for her. Sitting down hard, she hugged the bear tightly to her.
"Ugh, where has that thing been?" Sarin asked looking at the dirty and ragged bear.
"Everywhere I've been," Kita answered.
"Why? Are you suddenly regressing?" Sarin laughed.
Kita exploded in an emotional torrent. "Because it's the only thing I've had left of you. You left, I had no idea why or where, if you were ok, if you were coming back, if you hated me, if...if...if...I had a million different scenarios of what could happen to you running through my head and they all came to the same place, you dead. How could you leave me like that? What did I do that was so horrible you couldn't talk to me about it? That instead it was better for you to get up and vanish. Am I really that awful?"
Sarin looked at her blankly for a moment. "No...No...Of course not," Sarin exclaimed rolling over, realizing the gravity of the situation.
"Then why did you leave me?" Kita wailed.
Sarin slid off the bed and scrambled over to sit at Kita's feet. "I...I...Don't know, Babe. I don't remember. You took most of it from me. I just know it was something so horrible I couldn't live with myself. That had nothing to do with you. I should have talked to you and I'm sorry. I was scared, you have to understand that."
"Why didn't you call me later?" Kita sniffed.
Sarin hung her head and sighed deeply, "do you really want me to get into it? It's not exactly the high point of my life."
