Nero: I Wish I Was More Comforting...

I hugged Meita tightly in my chest, and strangely enough...she enjoyed my comfort.

I think.

She just seemed so happy fitting snuggly inside my arms that I really didn't want to let go. That was until Violet walked in and suddenly made it awkward. It wasn't her fault.

After that I went back to my room, which strangely enough now had my name on the door. I tightly curled my hand around the door knob and pushed it open, closing it behind me and sitting on my bed.

I gazed around the room, emptily turning my head to the bookcase. I walked over to it and drifted my finger over all of them until I found a decent book. I pulled it out and opened it, starting to read. A knock interupted me. I threw my book under the bed and stood up.

Meita stood by the door. "Hey..."she whispered uneasily, closing the door behind her. I nodded once in her direction.

"You okay?" I tried my best to sound comforting, but all I got back was a tired mumble. She shook her head, tears welling in her thickly-lashed eyes. I hesitated, "I um...i'm going to go get something to eat...you want some?" I asked. I wanted desperatley to stay with her, but I couldn't make things more awkward than they already were. She shook her head. "Okay, well...I'll see you later."

I walked out, closing the door behind me.

The End
