This is a story of a minute's happening, from the dream I've just had prior to waking up..
We were walking towards school, and crossing the road. Raku was coming in behind me, after we had rushed to cross the road, while there were no cars on it, but still not across a crosswalk. As we were rushing, it was kinda lacking in graciousness, how we had come to the other side. There were cars parked on the other side of the road, beside the sidewalk. Raku fell, as he was coming in right behind me. He fell in to a gap between the two cars' front and rear sections. He hit one car with his hip, in his hasty movement, and thus lost balance. Shuu shouted from the other side of the road checking if he's ok. I've crouched telling him how it's okay. Onodera came rushing. She was smiling. Raku had just begun to get his grip back, and was about to lift himself up, but Onodera's appearance brought him to a halt. She came, mildly rushing in to that somewhat tight gap between the two cars. Now that there are two people in it, it was less spacious. Raku was down on the floor with his whole body, on his back. He has only managed to slightly raise his upper body above the ground, with his hands behind his back, leaning on to the dirty asphalt ground. Onodera lowered herself. She had crouched as well I, but much more close to Raku. I was crouched on the sidewalk, Onodera was right there between the cars with him.
She asked him with her honest smile: "Are you ok?"
But she was different. She didn't seem embaraced, nor worried at all. And she usually would have been. Both of them were in that somewhat awkward place, between two cars, very close to each other. I was on the outside of the gap, but next to the both of them, looking with interest. Onodera was somehow having a certian aura.. Like, everything is clear to her.. I don't know.. She was not her usual self, the one who is shy and easily scared off from expressing her feelings. I mean, she is still that person, but now..
She was there, so close to Raku, without a hint of hesitation. His presence was, I figured, the sole focus of her being. Somehow, something was set in motion.. Onodera started closing in on Raku.. Me and Shuu observed. Shuu from the other side of the road, I a foot away.
They were.. Really close with their lips by now.. I was.. I was observing, and started cheering "Oh my God! Do it!". I must've looked like an obnoxious idiot, but in the dream, both of them, and Shuu as well knew me, thus they knew my intentions and emotions. But the more important thing is that they've basically not heard me at all. They were having a moment.
I lost the firm grip of reality in that moment as well, and all I could see were the lips of theirs, getting closer. I was shocked, overflown with surprise, as to how Onodera is doing this. Onodera was the one who had initiated it all, as Raku is still on the ground, and Onodera has more freedom to move. She had a smile, but not a flustered one. She had such an amazing smile for that situation, radiating with confidence and belief. She and Raku both had their eyes open, looking towards each other as they were nearing.. Onodera was the one who had closed in on Raku first, but it didn't take long for Raku to understand, as dense as he is.
In a moment, I didn't even notice their eyes.. Nor their faces . Nor the sound of the traffic around us.. The whole world of mine became their lips, now less than a centimeter apart. I was estatic, but frozen on the outside.. Having the feeling that I have buit the tallest tower of cards ever. Or rather, the most significant one to me. Only the cards were actually thin, exactly card-like, pieces of glass, and I had never had controll of the creation to begin with. But I was watching it there, and was so afraid that a gush of wind would appear..
Their lips came less than a centimeter close to each other, but then they put some distance in between. I notice their eyes, and their looks again. They both are looking in to each others' eyes. That look.
No smile. No any kind of facial expressions. Their faces were expressionless, and never before have I seen eyes looking in to another's soul, as entracing as this. The whole world ceased to exist in the moment of their look. My presence, nor the presence of the whole rest of the world did not matter to them. They too were engulfed by the moment's sudden happening.
It's like those really romantic moments.. When the only sound you can hear, is the leaves brimming on the wind.
Their gaze, lasted a few moments, their lips closed in once more, but this time without a halt.
They kissed. They've kissed and I.. I don't know.. In the dream I remember going numb.. I was just looking. I don't even remember much other than their lips together, and Onodera's smile. The whole thing left me in a state of shock..
Shuu's cheering eventually broke through, and reality sat back in.
I was starting to whisper out the words finally, finaly in my mind, and within a moment, I've screamed "Finally you two, finally!!". Onodera and Raku smiled; "Heh..". They've already stood up now, and were walking away. Shuu came close to me, to pick me up, seing that I was kinda imobilized. I remember feeling desperate for some reason, and as the two of them were walking away, tears started making their way to my eyes.. I've quickly stopped what was about to be a cry, because I didn't want to be the bitch who cries seemingly just to get attention. Shuu helped me get back a grip of reality, and started walking with me lightly. He had had that typical of him "Ah don't worry, I've got you covered in your ridiculous situation!" smile on his face.
Here I am, an hour after waking up, and I can't stop thinking about the scene still. This is just the gist of the dream.. There was more.. How happy they've looked, how.. Onodera was shinning with confidence, and how all that has happened, had happened, and they've walked away together. And we had a party, oh and also Raku's grandma blamed him for not taking care of her chickens right.. I don't know what to think of that, but yea..
I love this story, Nisekoi.
