Angels screamed, cried, tried to strike us down. We laughed wickedly, dancing through the thunder and lightning, dodging raindrops, soaked and feeling safe inside the danger.

I had always dreamed of teaching him to love the rain.

He turned his face to the clouds, a knife of lighting illuminating the childlike wonder in his eyes. His black jeans hugged his legs, his black t-shirt clinging to his chest, revealing each rib. His hair was plastered to his cheeks, dark and silky, and his wet cheeks were flushed.

I twirled in a circle, my long indigo skirt hanging off my hips. My wet curls cascaded down my back in a chestnut waterfall, falling to my waist and dripping down my legs. I blinked the water from my eyelashes and grinned at Fear.

He grinned back, drawing me into arms.

"I've always wanted to kiss you in the rain," I murmured in his ear, drowning in his embrace.

His lips collided with mine, our bodies pressed against each other, cold but warm at the same time.

I lost myself in the moment, forgetting everything but the feel of Fear's slender fingers on my back and the taste of his innocent kiss. Nothing matter but us. The world could end and I doubt we'd notice.

A crash of thunder shouted for attention, but we didn't react.

I traced Fear's high cheekbones with my dripping fingertips and he shuddered, the fine blonde hairs on his arms standing on end.

I broke free of his hold and pirouetted, singing with the storm.

He laughed and joined me, his long limbs flailing in the wind.

I collapsed on the cool grass, watching him become one with the rain. There was something different about him that night. He was brighter… stronger… taller, somehow.

"I love you!" he screamed over the storm.

"I love you, too!" I cried, my tears mixing with raindrops.

"Fay," I whispered.

A/N: Is it pathetic that I cried all through writing this? God, I'm going to miss him... he was my favorite character ever! I don't think I'll totally let go of him yet. He might pop up in poems, one shots... maybe another full story? Depends on how my other stories go. (I have ideas up to here. -jumps up and down- Not sure what I'm going to start posting next. Guess I should finish some old stuff?) Anyway, this is going to be an extra long note, I think, because it's the last... just bear with me.

Plinky: Yeah, I know! But actually I'm kind of over it with this one because I really finished it in August... I wrote it in two weeks in the summer, lol. I'm just really behind in posting.

Two Paths: I will! And thanks so much.

DianaChristine: I know what you mean... my ex boyfriend comes pretty close (as in he's oh so pretty and sweet) but, well, we're not exactly together currently... if anybody cares, that's my excuse for taking so long to update!!

free-to-dream15: I'm a big romance fan, too- which I think is obvious from this story, lol.

Elven Sword: Eep... I really must go through and edit this. And, wow, good guess! Yeah, it's predictable and kind of cliche, but I just had to do it. And yeah, you're right, in a way it isn't a story (as in there's barely a plot) but merely an interaction between two characters... interesting how it turned out, it wasn't meant to be written like this. But, hey, I'm happy. (Special thanks to you for being my first reviewer!)

Aspen Montier: Fangirl Bubbliness, lol! I know the feeling- I get like that with my slash stories. :P

Gremlin15: Sorry, he's mine. All mine. Heehee.

jus-me: Don't worry, this style is my new friend. I think I'll be using it a lot. I've got a couple in the works like this.

Perilous Escapist: I'd get bored with a neverending story, lol! But I will write lots of stories! (Extra thanks for you for reading this before I posted it. And for, well, bringing me to this site! And for everything. I am so dedicating my first published book to you.)

SolitarySigh: Thanks. And that's okay if you don't like all the sugar, I know a lot of people don't. I'm just way too romantic for my own good, lol.

Extra-strength-Peppermint-Tea: Wow, thank you! You're so sweet. I don't know what to say! I adore you.

Rachela Pedrickson: You're welcome! Lol!

esther electric: Thanks for reviewing.

You guys mean the world to me and without you Fear probably just wouldn't be.

And extra special thanks to Nyghts Dark Desire for being so rude because it showed the world how idiotic you are and earned me a lot of compliments! Thanks for sticking up for me, guys!

And now I must leave you... at least for this story. :( I'm going to miss you all! But expect to see me back with a new story soon- just got to decide what I want to work on! Until then- hope your day is full of rainbows! (And I'm ending this now because it's amazingly long. Can you tell I have trouble letting go?)
