Bootlegged Bourbon

 

He died and vanished one night. Face was gaunt, blood covering the floor like the demonic vestiges of an alchemized body, and then instantaneously, Cross was gone. And no one ever saw him again.

 

…until…

 

(this was the little sheep who fled from the flock

 

 – this was the girl who became a person)

 

Lenalee rested her aching feet, propped up on the unused seat opposite her. The train picked up in motion, hastening in pace, a jagged, plaintive wail-of-a-whistle blowing overhead. She sighed and massaged her muscles. Strong, lean, and gorgeous in gauze and crystallized plasma, her legs carried her far and wide.

 

Dressed in crimson and black, a man approached and sat down next to her, hat disguising his face—a pseudo, temporary mask. She struck down the instinct of “surprise” and slapped down, instead, a conversation.

 

“It’s not wise to believe everything you hear and see, Lenalee.”

 

“I don’t. But you died.”

 

The word was ugly and menacing, a cut across the face or a castrated fear resurfacing.

 

Cross uncorked a bottle of whiskey and poured pungent, amber liquid into matching glasses (tucked inside his shirt, two miniature vials of contained sin). He offered and she accepted—to hell with morals and moralistic numbness.

 

“Obviously, I am alive and quite well. Dead men can’t drink.”

 

“Then why didn’t you come back?” to us…to me.

 

“I have my reasons.”

 

The searing sensation of tears welling up started, a familiar passage—a trite rite—she hated and couldn’t deter. He was insufferable was vile (no communication for three years) but he was also alive. And that was enough.

 

Lenalee downed the liquor in one scorching gulp, clink went the glass (thud went her heart). And decided that she would rather kiss him than cry (must be the alcohol at work).

I knoooow. It's all His Holi-Sexiness' fault. I used to sleep at night before D.Gray-Man.

There can never be enough Cross/Lenalee fic in the world, and certainly not enough of yours. ^___^
