I flinched as I heard the door slam shut. Tears continued to to run down my cheeks as I curled up on the kitchen floor. My voice was already strained from all the yelling, so strained that my sobs were no longer audible. How had we gotten here?
---One Year Earlier---
"Here it is. This is the day my nightmare finally comes true..." I sighed, placing my suitcase in the trunk of Daichi's car, along with the rest of my belongings. we both started university in about two weeks, so Daichi had taken it upon himself to help me settle in before heading off to his own school. He had received a full scholarship to a school with one of the best volleyball teams in the country, and somehow I had convinced him to take it. We were both set on starting a life together. We'd go to the same university, live in a small apartment, learn how to be adults together. I guess it's for the best that he and I are separated for the next few years. We wouldn't be so codependent, maybe the distance could be good for our relationship, and besides, how could I keep him away from fulfilling his dreams?
Daichi moved behind me as I closed the trunk, placing his hands on my waist and resting his chin on my shoulder, a position I had gotten all too used to. "Everything will be fine, I promise. In a few months, we'll be back together. It'll be like we were never apart. And do you know why that is?" He whispered softly against he back of my neck. "That's because I love you, Koushi." I couldn't help but smile at that. I turned myself around slowly, so that we were facing each other, and looked up into his eyes. I took a deep breath and nodded slightly, resting my head on his chest. "Now come on. We have to get going."
I sighed once more and finally pulled away, moving to get in the passenger seat. I closed the door as Daichi got in and rested my head against the window. Daichi started the car and we slowly made our way out of town. I watched as the only home I ever knew faded away, along with every memory and everyone.
"Are you sure everything will be okay? Daichi, we haven't been apart for more than a day since we were first years and you got sick for a week..."
For some reason, this had caused him to start laughing. I looked over at him, wondering what was so funny. "Suga, if I remember that week correctly, you came by my house everyday after practice to make sure I was doing alright. But, to answer your question, yes, I'm sure, Suga," Daichi smiled, touching my hand reassuringly. I nodded and closed my eyes, hoping to fall asleep before I could get any more emotional, but before I knew it, the car came to a stop. I opened my eyes slightly to see what was going on. Daichi was getting out of the car and making his way over to open my door. I got out, taking Daichi's hand hesitantly. I guess Daichi could read the confusion on my face, so he just smiled and kissed my forehead. "Don't worry, there's just one last thing I need to do before we head off."
I gave him a suspicious look and hesitantly followed him as he started to walk. He had taken us to a little cliff that overlooked the beach. The memories that we had made here were irreplaceable. Even before we were together
I looked over the horizon, smiling as the sun reflected the ocean. I looked up at Daichi, confused when I didn't see him. "Suga," I heard from behind me. I turned around to see Daichi on one knee with a small box in his hand. He took my hand and continued. "I love you so much, and yes, I know we've only been together for a short amount of time, but I know that we belong together. You are my everything and I want it to stay like that forever. I know that these next few years are going to be hard, but I also know that we are strong enough to work through it. I hate the thought of being away from you for this long, but knowing that when it's finally over we can be together forever makes it worth it."
I could feel the tears begin to well up in my eyes. I was so overwhelmed with happiness that I couldn't even say his name.
"Suga, my entire world revolves around you. Without you I wouldn't know what to do. So, Sugawara Koushi, will you marry me?"
I slowly started to calm down. Tear drops scattered the kitchen tile in front of me. I looked down at my hand, fiddling with the ring on my finger. "I love you so much, Daichi... Please don't leave...Please..."
(Well, that was the first chapter... Don't hate me? Well, more to come. I know this was a little short, but I'm just kind of setting the mood right now. Thanks for reading <3 ~ Katelynn)
