*I was originally going to post this on February, but there was no time. This story is from my story “Claudia of the sea”. This might get a little gross, but don’t worry, there is a happy ending. Gacha Club character designs are on my wall. Enjoy!*
“What’s wrong? This is wrong!” Caden cried out, gesturing to his height.
He was human once.
Well, until Claudia poisoned him to be a thirteen foot tall half human, half kraken sea monster.
Speaking of which, the latter was busy hugging an old treasure chest close to her. She either didn’t notice or didn’t care about the world around her. Caden had no idea.
He was lamenting to his human girlfriend, Alanna. It was a calm conversation until he had the frightful realization that he could not kiss or hold her ever again.
He was just this thing taking up space.
“It’s not too bad.”
“Yes it is! I’ll never be able to kiss you ever again! I’d accidentally eat you.” Caden said glumly.
“You already did that, remember? It was on purpose too. I’m a ghost. You can’t hurt me.”
Caden smiled. She was right. He couldn’t hurt her now that she was dead.
But another dark thought crossed his mind.
“You’re not solid. You’re just air and energy.”
Alanna tapped a finger to her lips, like she was trying to solve a problem.
But it was done. He couldn’t ever love her like he did when he was human.
“Tell you what. You can blow me a kiss and I’ll catch it with my hand.”
“It won’t be the same.”
“Maybe not, but things rarely stay the same.”
Well. That would have to do.
He blew Alanna a kiss. She reached out with her right hand and pressed it to her heart. Then, she blew a kiss back at him.
Caden knew that there was no actual kiss to catch, but he still made sure sure to catch it.
“Never forget how much I love you.”
“Really? Even when I’m like this?”
“You mean it?”
“I swear it.”
“I love you too.”
Maybe change wasn’t a bad thing.
