IF TOMORROW NEVER COMES
Haruka just got done reading the latest issue of Sports Illustrator. She crept slowly into the room knowing that her sea goddess is already asleep. She got on the bed and looked at the sleeping figure beside her.
Sometimes late at night
I lie awake and watch her sleeping
Michiru reached for the warm body beside her. When she found Haruka's body, she slid closer and went back to the dream world with a small smile on her lips. 'She's so cute' Haruka is still wide awake and continued looking at Michiru. 'I'm so lucky to have you, my sea nymph.' She kissed Michiru's forehead softly saying, “Goodnight Michi-chan.” Haruka turned the lampshade off and her vision was enveloped by darkness.
She's lost in peaceful dreams
So I turned out the late and lay there in the dark
After her vision got adjusted to the darkness, Haruka thought about the article that she read a few minutes ago. It was about one of her fellow F1 racer. His wife woke him up but he never did open his eyes, and he never will. His friend died in his sleep. Haruka looked at the person close to her and realized that there is always a chance that she wouldn't wake up the next day. 'I love you Michi.' Then Haruka fell asleep.
And a thought crosses my mind
If I never wake up in the morning
Would she ever doubt the way I feel
About her in my heart
Michiru woke up the next day and stretch. She looked at the sleeping blonde beside her and smiled. Then the soft smile on her face turned into a mischievous grin. She took the blanket off of the sleeping person. “Ruka, wake up!” She said in a husky voice (as husky as her soft voice can get). When the tall blonde didn't shift nor opened her eyes, Michiru tried harder. She touched the showing flesh of the blonde (the one close to the ribs). Then, Michiru started tickling the sleeping body. When there was no reaction from her, Michiru started to put. She felt the cold flesh of her lover and got a little worried. “Are you cold Ruka?” After covering the other woman with the blanket, Michiru stood up and left to prepare breakfast. She decided to leave the tall woman alone, for now.
When Michiru got done preparing food, she went back to their room to wake Haruka up. This time she was determined to see the green eyes, that she loves so much, to look at her sleepily. She went beside the bed and shook Haruka slowly. She was stating to get worried since the racer still did not respond. Then, it suddenly hit her. Haruka is cold, not responding AND not breathing! She started to panic. “Ruka?Haruka!Wake up! You've got to be kidding right? Haruka!” The blonde still did not move. Tears started to come out of her eyes. “Haruka! Haruka! Ruka... I love you.” The words started to become a whisper and she began to whisper with tears pouring out from her eyes.
If tomorrow never comes
Will she know how much I loved her?
Did I try in every way
To show her everyday
That she's my only one
Setsuna and Hotaru came in ans asked Michiru why she was shouting. When she saw that Michiru is crying, they started to worry. “Ruka...sob is not waking up...she's not breathing... sob” Hotaru tried to resist the idea that came into her mind ans shook her head. “No, it's impossible!” She walked towards the unmoving body and touched her foster parent's arm. It was cold. She still did not want to give in and tried to use her powers to “heal” the blonde. Haruka still didn't warm up nor responded. Hotaru started to cry too. “No!No! This is not happening! She was just awake yesterday!We even went biking! No!” Setsuna walked into the body and touched the face of the 'sleeping' Haruka. “She looks strong even in her death.” Setsuna whispered while Michiru got on bed and embraced the body. “You promised not to leave me Haruka...”
A fading Haruka can be seen on the corner; Seeing her dead body on the bed and watching all these things happen around the body. As she fades, using her last will and strength, she stretched her right arms which looks like she was reaching for someone.
A soft wind blew inside the close room. It stopped around Setsuna, it caressed Hotaru and enveloped Michiru. Michiru smiled, closed her eyes and with tears still flowing from her eyes said, “I love you too Ruka.”
