‘Why can’t we be together?’ She knew the answer already, of course. But, she wanted to hear him say it.
‘Because I’ll hurt you and you’ll hurt me. Sometimes, the pain is worth it, but it never would be for us. I love you so much and I refuse to ruin that. We might be happy for a bit, but we would end up hating each other. And I can’t let myself, but more so, selfishly, I can’t let you hate me.’
They both made it early to the meeting place. She wore her best, and he wore his worst.
While Rin had been the first to suggest they do things non-traditionally, she still remembered dreams of white dresses and church bells. Her outfit was nothing but a simple Sunday frock, fraying at the seams a bit, but still more presentable than her work clothes.
Meanwhile Yugo had tried to maintain the secrecy of their plans and adopted a causal outfit any Commons could have worn. It did the job when looking from a distance, but up close it showed little sign of wear or tear. It was obvious to anyone that something in such fine a condition could only belong to the Tops.
Still both outfits did the job. The two passed each other without a single glance. Yugo entered a small church as if it was an afterthought while after walking a few blocks further, Rin darted into a side-alley and entered a mess of a maze that could make you dizzy just by looking at it. In the end, they both made it to a cramped storage room tucked away from the prying eyes of the world.
