He reached out to stop her when she had nearly reached the door, pulling her into his arms before she had the chance to leave. His grip on her forearm was gentle. A tired but peaceful smile pulled at her lips, though she knew without having to look that his expression would serious, if not slightly worried.
The risk of getting caught was painfully strong when they were on the SRF-003 Calnus.
Reimi Saionji's eyes drooped closed peacefully as she leaned back into his embrace. His touch felt so wrong, but his warmth awoke a secret excitement in her. More so, she felt so safe with him. It was like when she was with him and they were alone, the rest of the world couldn't reach her.
She rested her head against his shoulder, enjoying his familiar scent. He embraced her from behind and she reached up to intertwine her fingers between his. Even through the thin, white material of her gloves, she could feel the warmth of his hand.
It was so refreshing to place her trust
Utopia Chapter XFinal Hikari: Bwahahaha. There's actual plot in this chapter! XD I'm sure my usual readers are aware I never give my characters any peace, but I don't know if anyone is guessing the plot yetUtopia Chapter X by RollingTomorrow
Lymle: Any real announcements?
Final Hikari: Actually, yes! One real one and one not-so-real one. XD The latter is that I completely forgot I was sitting on this chapter! I thought it was already finished and posted.
Lymle: -.- You're really senile, 'kay?
Final Hikari: I blame NaNoWriMo. Now, for the good news! The Grammar Goddess, Dr. Meh, is still drowning in AP high school classes, so Meikahna is betaing for me! Many thanks go to her for saving the grammatical day. XD Now, if you will excuse me, I'm going to hide under my electric blanket for this chapter. XD
Lymle: That's a waste of power. Just sit by the fireplace, 'kay?
Final Hikari: -deadpan- This is 21st Century Earth. Fireplaces aren't in every house.
Lymle: That's weird.
Final Hikari: No weirder than my twisted ima
Utopia Chapter IXFinal Hikari: Okay! Time to explain Toothpick Syndrome! XD I apologize for not doing this sooner, but this was the first disclaimer opening I had. -shot- Its a term I made up for characters whose personalities can be summed up by the following definition:Utopia Chapter IX by RollingTomorrow
A character who is so incredibly powerful you know that they could just pwn the ass of anything other character who tried to fight them armed with only a toothpick. But theyre too stoic, cool, or just mature to gloat about it because both they and everyone else already knows how kickass they are. Sephiroth from Final Fantasy VII, KOS-MOS from Xenosaga, Toya from Ceres: Celestial Legend, Sigmund from Infinite Undiscovery, and Arumat P. Thanatos from TLH are all Toothpick Syndrome Victims.
Final Hikari: XD Yes. The phrase pwn your ass is really in my vocabulary. X.X
Edge: -blink- -slight nod- I suppose its a fairly accurate description.
Final Hikari: -sweat drop- Thanks now do t

Final Hikari: Late, as usual T.T But better late than never!
Faize: Philosophies such as that one encourage procrastination.
Final Hikari: I learned it from my younger sister/editor. Anyway! Im sorry I took so long on this; I had one idea before this one, but it was too awkward, difficult, and unoriginal. I didnt condemn it until after 2,000 words though. XD I wanted it to be completely stand alone, without any affiliation to the piles of post-ending scene ideas I have for Utopia. I was drawing a blank, so I decided to look past my novels timeline.
Lymle: That sounds kinda ominous, kay?
Final Hikari: Then I started writing around 10 PM when a storm started going through, and my sleep deprived imagination did the rest!
Faize: -blank stare- Im starting to sympathize with your readers, there is no consistency in how or when you write
Final Hikari: Ya, theyre doomed to suffer my slowness. XD Anyway
