FALLING

Chapter One: "Trying To Die"


He just sat there, staring at the pool of blood forming on the cold floor of the bathroom, slowly spreading to his feet. His wrist sliced, the vein cut, the red blood pouring fast and painful.

'So' he thought, 'I'm going to die. Finally'

The knife still clenched tightly on his right hand. His eyelids became heavy and heavy with each moment, until he closed his eyes, and fell into unconsciousness.

------------------------------

Beep, beep, beep…

Something was making that noise...

Beep, beep, beep...

Such an annoying noise...

Beep, beep, beep...

He opened his eyes slowly, trying to remember who he was, and where he was.

'Oh, right, my name is Kai, and... and I cut my wrist... hum, I wonder... is this heaven?' The thought appeared on his mind when he focused on the white ceiling above. 'Maybe I'm in the purgatory'.

The door opened, and a head appeared, looking inside the room. The person gasped, and Kai drifted his eyes to the man, who was now standing fully inside the room.

"You're awake! I don't believe this!"

The man appeared to be in his late forties, with black, slightly streaked gray, hair, and black eyes.

"Who are you, and where am I?" Kai asked.

"I'm doctor Reitheg, and you're in the hospital where I work." The doctor answered, making his way towards the bed, checking Kai's conditions on a clipboard.

"Hospital? You mean I'm not dead?"

"Of course you're not dead!"

Kai groaned, smacking his hand on his forehead. "I knew I should have cut the two wrists! Damn, I thought one would do the job."

The doctor looked down at the redhead, a look of surprise on his face. "You're saying you wanted to die?"

Kai frowned, his clear-blue eyes glaring at the doctor. "Yes, I wanted to die, but it seems that you and my savior, whoever it is, didn't quite agree."

The doctor gave a small smile. "I'm sorry, I didn't know. But even if I knew, I wouldn't have let you die, after all is my job to save lives, even when they don't want to be saved."

Kai mumbled something that seemed suspiciously like 'soft on heart doctors', which only gained a chuckle from the doctor.

"So, how long have I being asleep?" the boy asked.

"Three weeks. I thought you were going to sleep forever! No one usually takes this long to wake up." said Reitheg.

"Shame, even not dying, at least I wouldn't have to deal with the rest of the world."

"Jesus, you really want to die. May I ask why?"

"That's none of your business." Kai answered.

"Hm, ok. I guess I will just go and call 'your savior', as you put it. He will be glad to know." Doctor Reitheg answered with humor in his voice.

"So I will have to meet him. I don't even know who is it, I just hope he doesn't expect me to pay anything, I didn't asked to be saved."

------------------------------

About half an hour later, Kai was gazing out of the window, when someone came rushing into the room.

"Kai!"

Kai's eyes fell on the young man in front of him. Dark blue hair, amethyst eyes, pale skin. Sogetsu.

I finally decided to stop being a lazy ass and get on with my writing. I'm so sorry for taking so long, but I had writer's block, and somehow I had lost interest in writing, but now I'm back!

I really don't know where I'm going with this fic, and even with "Under The Moonlight" too. If someone has ANY idea, please tell me, I will appreciate it, and if I like, I will use it! It can be anything, even throwing in some magic, angels, demons, monsters, vampires, time travel or whatever. I will be waiting the reviews!

Hugs,

Lady Alexiel
