Reunited, Forever?

Melissa yawned, kicking off the covers. She was late getting up. The moon had already began to set. She heard the howls in the distance. "Lazarus." She muttered, a little concerned. She picked up some clothes and ran over to where Lazarus was, the smell of dog was over-whelming but she kept her distance until she heard whimpering in the distance. She approached cautiously. "Lazarus?" She asked, taking a step at a time. "Lazarus, are you...okay?"

Lazarus snatched the clothes from her and began to get dressed. "I have a bullet in my thigh. I'm just dandy!"

Melissa placed a hand on his leg, "this is going to hurt, I'm sorry. But....trust me." She pushed down on his leg, then with the other she extracted the bullet, throwing it aside. Lazarus shouted and swore as she tried to retrieve it.

"Thanks...I think."

Melissa nodded, "so, how was it?"

"How was what?"

"The...prison." She muttered, Lazarus' tone seemed angry and Melissa thought best not to anger him more.

"It was very...prison like?" He shrugged.

She sighed then, without warning, she flung her arms round him. "I'm so glad you're okay." She murmured, trying not to think about Connor.

He hugged her back hesitantly, "thanks. I'm glad you're okay, too. I'm sorry if my note worried you too much."

"Worried? I..." she stopped. Breathing in she calmed down. "No. I'm just happy you're safe. Please, never do anything like that again."

"I probably shouldn't have left a note, should I? I wasn't thinking straight." Melissa shook her head as soon as he mentioned it, she was about to speak but he held up a hand politely. "And I shouldn't need to do it again, unless we get any more loco neighbours."

"You said... you said you had some words for me. Have you found them?" She asked, curious.

"No... But I can hardly put this into words, can I?" He placed his arms around her waist and pulled her close. He tilted his head slightly and placed his lips on hers. His warm lips crushed hers, sending a warm sensation down her spine.

She shook her head."I...I tried to do the best I could, I came! I... I played for you. Did you hear?" She stuttered, still taken aback by his kiss.

Lazarus' voice had become soft and warming as he spoke,"I heard. It was beautiful. Thank you."

She nodded, "I... I was just so worried." She smiled, resting her head on his chest.

"No means to worry you more, but they saw me come into the woods. they think I'm injured. We should probably move..."

Melissa nodded. "Yes." She took his hand as they walked through the woods, back the way she had came, away from the foul prison.

"I'm sorry you got dragged into this. Bet you wish you had chosen a different flat block now, eh?"

"No. Never." Her answer was confident and clear.

"Even with all this? Loving a killer?" He looked down, disgusted at himself.

"Even with this." She smiled.

"You're nuts. I love you though." He laughed.

She nodded. "Yep. Can you put up with a mad woman for a little while longer?"

"Just a little while? I could put up with this particular mad woman for a lot longer than that," he laughed, placing his arm around her as they walked, pulling her closer to him.

"Good." She smiled, resting against his touch.

Lazarus smiled, then kissed her swiftly before they began to walk again. They walked, as the moon began to set behind the clouds. Reunited again.

The End
