Rex sees Aoi enter the door as he take in that first heavenly sip of coffee. Speeding himself up a bit (which is becoming dangerously addictive), he watches her eyes and sees a mix of thought run through her. It ends in a slightly sad inflection. Suddenly, it all rushes inside. Oh yes, Aoi. Wow, my best friend! More memories as they got older, when he started thinking about his best friend in a different way. He adored her! But then that fateful day when he knew he had to leave. He couldn't tell her for she had plans and where he was going, it was full of danger.
My god, that was a sad day, he thought. I turned around twice, starting to run back to tell her but then I realized again and again how she would never let me go alone. And no, where I went was no place for a beautiful, lovely soul. For what Aoi never truly knew was when his parents vanished, his soul became twisted and filled with only one thought... revenge.
I could pretend I'm an uncle, Rex thought. Try to convince Aoi I'm looking for Rex. Hmm, but my name is known as Rex also. Not the oddest thing but still, kind of suspicious. Plus, she always had a knack for knowing when I was fibbing.
Rising to broach the subject, he studied her. She looks so young still. I have aged probably to more than twice her age, and only a few years ago we were only months apart.
Sighing, he gestured towards an empty chair nearby. "Ok if I sit for a moment?", of course his ready grin appearing, despite his turmoil inside.
