A boy who has the power to create anything, but at the cost of his true love, to create a world where she would be happy?

Here lies... a boy... with a dream...

A small blue haired boy woke up in a blank void, where he walked upon the void, and found nonthing. There he spent, hours walking forward only to find more and more void.

He thought to himself, is this all there is in life, space, and empitness, he then dropped down on his knees, hands on his head, slowly shaking it trying to deny it.

He was scared, and depressed, trying his hardest to deny that he was alone, he wanted to see something, or someone...

He arches back trying to scream into the void, but not even a sound existed in such a place. He drops down on his back, staring blankly up at the voided sky, till suddenly a girl, with blue eyes and light blond hair looks down on him waving hello.

The boy in shock suddenly tries to get up, thier foreheads clashes aginst eachother, the girl walked back with her hands on her forehead, as the boy just stood up steped back, and stared at her by surprize.

The girl shook her head, and looked at him frustrated, then calms down, and extended her hand towards him as a sign of greeting. The boy shook her head cautiously, and started to analyze the girl as the girl noticed what he was doing, and suddenly blushes then turns away.

He then blushes abit, and bows towards her as an apology for doing an embarrasing act, the girl peeks towards him, then seemed like she was giggling, as she turns to him with a small smile. The boy looked at her, then to the void, and wondered where did she came from, the boy deep in thought in where did she came from, and how did she found him, the more he thought, the more he realised, the sudden a gentle breeze of wind flowed towards them, he then assumes theres more to the void than he knew... or so he thought...

They walked into the void together, only to find more void, it was then that the boy thought deeply, and more wind, or small sound would appear, he slowly realised that it could be him to have created this... As he wondered that, that could be the reason, he started to think for somthing small, then infront of him appeared a silver neckless, that when he smiled, and looked towards the girl, and puts it on her, as he done that she blushes, looking towards him with a kind smile.

The boy thought she deserved more than a mere neckless, so then little by little he started to create a world, a paradise for them alone, as he was nearly finished creating the sea, sky and a beutiful lone island he collapse on the beach, where the girl runs up to him worried and trying to help him wake up.

A few hours later the boy woke up, dragging himself outside, determined to finish the world he created for her, as he tried to finish the world, the girl saw him trying to do so, and runs towards him, but then he was finished, with his life source drained... the girl holds his head up towards her, her tears slowly drops on his chest, but the boy hand slowly moves up to her cheek, and did what he last created,"I have created sound, to tell you that, I love you...", and with that his hand falls, leaving his last words deep within her heart...

The End.
