He resorted back to the first time he saw Aiden, before the whole sex change operation. And before he started acting out himself; wearing what he wanted, acted how he pleased, changing his hair. All of his changes, though she doesn't know it, was for her. Knowing she was struggling to accept herself and being comfortable with how she looked. Her hair was shorter, usually in a mess, with baggy sweatshirts and jeans. She would stay in the back of the room unnoticed by anyone, even the teachers.
He wanted to show her that she could do what ever she wanted by doing it himself first. To try and show, even if she were to be mocked at, she'll be happier by expressing her true self. And soon, after the change's Cain went through, she started following shortly behind. His plan worked out. And the moment she came out to him being Transgendered, he knew he hit home.
"What're you looking at?" Aiden's cherry coated voice brought him back to the present. He lay on his back with his hands behind his head, and foot rested over one knee. The three above sheltered them from the sun, shadows damnced around them as a light wind blew around them. He was staring at her from the corner of his eye, of course, though she did not know. She sat straight up with her knees buckled underneath her to one side, staring him down with the crystal eyes that never changed. They were the only thing to remind him of Aiden's past, knowing they will only be memories now.
"The sky," He lied and gave her the attention she thought he wasn't giving her and looked at her. "It's peaceful here, isn't it? Not another human being in sight. Just you and I."
"Yeah, it is, I suppose." She spoke, a bit surprised by him being so relaxed. His white teeth showed between his smiling lips as he sat up and ran his hand through his flexable bleached moehawk.
The pizza box was almost empty by this time, Cain eating more than half. She always wondered where his body puts the food he eats, and where the fat goes. He never seem's to gain any weight from all the food he eats, making Aiden jealouse. If she were to eat that much it sure would show, she thought.
Througout the years it wasn't hard for Cain to say what he wanted. But now, when it came to this, his nerves took the better of him. He could feel his hands shake with a bit of adrenalin and his stomache started to knot on him. "Baby doll," he spoke, his voice a bit ruffled from his nerves, hoping Aiden could not detect that he was acting indifferent. "You know I would never let anything happen to you, yeah?"
"Yeah, sure, I know." Aiden had replied, not so sure about his sudden outburst, and why he's been acting weird lately.
To her surprise he continued, "I've known you for years now, and I've seen you turn into this beautiful younge lady you always were. And I just wanted to say-" Up til now Cain wasn't sure on what he was saying, and now that he realized it before he actually said anything, he wasn't sure if he could continue it. It wasn't the fear of not knowing if he'd lose her or not - he knew he wont. It was something else. Maybe it was because he never truly gave his heart to anyone he's dated, not like he was about to now.
In an effort to calm his nerves, he stood up, the thin chains around his pant legs ringed with his movements. "Aiden, I love you with all of my heart. You're very dear to me and I want you to always be in my life."
All of it came out as a shock to Aiden. She always thought that his flirtness was just a way to make her smile. It was so natrual from him, she thought nothing of it. As she rose to her feet as well, she didn't lose her gaze on him. To have someone not even ten feet away, pronounce their love wasn't something that happened to her everyday, so natrually she was not able to comperhend any sort of statement or resort.
"Say something." Cain said in a low voice, lowering his head in embarrasment.
Arms wrapped around his musclin shoulders moments after, sending him into a sweet scent daze. "I love you too, Cain." She laughed in his ear as he pulled her closer to himself, a smile unable to hide behind his lips.
