"You actually took my advice. You actually accepted the darkness?" Axel asks
incredulously. I'm confused. "What? No, I- wait, what happened?" Axel sighs, and
pulls me close, so I feel that I'm wrapped in a wool blanket by a fireplace. I hug up
to him, with my ear against his chest, hearing nothing, for he hasn't a heartbeat to
listen to. His voice softens. "Lanixa, your eyes showed us the darkness....people who
are enveloped by it always are blindfolded. Their eyes...are too painful to look at."
I begin to cry, tears slipping from beneath my silk blindfold.
"But...I don't want to be some kind of freak! I want to see, I wish I was normal!"
Axel holds me tightly, and wipes away my tears, hushing me comfortingly.
"Shhh. Heyyy, what's all this? You're still fine to me!" Even though I couldn't see
it, I could tell he was grinning. "Even if I don't have a heart...if someone makes me
feel this way...they must be someone special, got it memorized?" I can't help but
chuckle at his old catchphrase. A tremor of confusion goes up my spine, although I'm
engulfed by loving warmth.
Axel loves me?
Or is he pretending to, so he can take advantage of my trust?
Will my mind ever stop asking questions?
I'm engulfed in the darkness...
I accept that, as I thought it as a statement, and not a question?
