Good day listeners, I am Atsushi Sakurai, the vocalist of BUCK-TICK. Regrettably… David Bowie is not with us anymore. I was a lonely and reticent teen… his songs always brought me to the edge of the universe and gave me lots of beautiful dreams. It has not changed until now. Henceforward they will certainly…always, always…give me dreams… David Bowie-san… thank you. I would like to listen to “Wild Is The Wind”.

I lay there on my bed staring at the ceiling. Downstairs, I could hear my family laughing and talking about something they consider interesting I guess. I had the radio on in my room to block out the noise. They were playing The Velvet Underground on the FM. The faint strumming of the guitar filled the silent lifeless air in my room. I closed my eyes and hummed along with the tune, trying to forget the unfortunate occurrence.
I couldn’t help but wonder how he met my sister. He was younger than my sister, I was sure of that. My sister must have been in second year of college by the time he was in his final year of school. She is not even into the kind of music he played with the band he was in. He was a punk rock kid. My sister is a ballet girl. I remember, how because of Y/S/N I had to take up dance. She would drag me to ballet classes along with her.
I opened my eyes and stared back at the uninteresting ceiling which happened to capture my attention once again. I narrowed my eyes and tried to figure it all out. However, I didn’t know what could I have probably achieved from figuring out this meaningless subject I was pondering over. They were together now and it didn’t make sense to just me. What was the use after all when everyone is happy?
The song on the radio changed. It was my favourite band now, with one of their best song. Asleep by The Smiths came on the radio and my eyes were close once again. The soothing melody and the lullaby-like track instantly made me calm and forget about the pain I was experiencing after seeing his face once more after all these years.
I slowly started to feel numb and sleep and exhaustion was slowly taking over my body. As I was dozing off, I swear I heard the door open and a few steady footsteps on my wooden floor.
*after an hour*
As I tried opening my eyes, I saw a tall blurry image of a guy sat next to me. Lazily, rubbing off the remaining sleep from my eyes, I finally opened my eyes.
There he was, sat on the armchair next to my bed, Clifford. Michael had a sad apologetic look on his face and his eyes were glassy from the tears welling them. I could see him gulp down his fear as his adam’s apple moved.
“Hey Michael.” I tried to get rid of the awkward tension.
“Your parents and Y/S/N went out for some shopping. I decided to stay back.” I nodded
“You didn’t go with them?”
“No. I guess we needed to talk right?” He stuttered. He was a wreck from the nervousness.
“Talk about what? Wasn’t everything settled that year?”
He raised his eyebrow and the pain left now, replaced by anger.
“You know, shit happens Michael!”
“Yeah you would say so” leaning in closer he looked straight into my eyes. His piercing green eyes were a shade darker from the annoyance “cuz you didn’t suffer the pain I went through. This was the biggest shit that happened to me. I am not happy Y/N. There wasn’t a day I didn’t think of you. Yet with time, we became so close to strangers that it seemed like I was non existent in your life.”
He looked down towards his feet and I couldn’t have felt worse for what he was going through, all because of me.
“Michael, life is eventful I guess. That’s all I can say. There is no use of saying all this anymore. When things ended between us, it ended for a reason and we are here today because it was supposed to be like this!”
“Oh!” All the emotions left his face and his face was as pale as snow, with no feelings.
“I sound harsh don’t I?” I smiled to seem okay. Though, I wasn’t and I am not sure how was I going to pretend to be okay.
“So how are you?” I tried making small talks. I tried to make things okay.
“Fine I guess if you are so okay.” He got up and turned around to leave. His pace reflected the anger residing inside of him.
I shook my head at his remark and watched him leave. I made a big mistake letting him go and it was something I cannot stop regretting about. Today it all came tumbling down on me. Now, how was I to carry this burden and move on?
