Careless, Painless and Voiceless

Chapter 19: Wish

Haruka went on the elevator with Quatre.

"How is Sandrock?" Haruka asked.

"It's perfect." Quatre replied.

As the elevator went up, it suddenly stopped. Haruka panicked and called Olivia.

"My Olivia, what's wrong?" Haruka asked.

"Short circuit." Olivia replied.

Then Haruka and Quatre rose from the floor.

"Also, the A.G. is also malfunctioning. I'll fix that in a moment." Olivia added.

Haruka gazed at Quatre who is smiling at her.

"Don't worry, everything will be fine." Quatre assured her.

"I hope so. I don't like elevators. They make me puke." Haruka said.

"Don't worry. I'm here."

"Same line as my brother."

"You still miss Edward."

"I do."

"What about Trowa?"

"Not him again. Everyone is asking that question since Trowa told Milliardo that I'm his girlfriend."

"Milliardo also told me that you almost have sex but they arrived. Is that true?"

"So what? He is mine!"

"Why did you deny it in the first place?"

"I don't know. We never talked about our real status."

"The two of you are confusing."

"I know. If only Edward is here, what would he do to him?"

"Nothing. He'll think that Trowa is a nice guy."

"You're really like Edward. Can you be my brother just this once?"

"Sure. What do you want to ask me?"

Quatre was surprised when Haruka hugged him.

"I missed him so much. I want to hug my brother." Haruka said.

"Now there's gravity. I hope my Haru is ok." Olivia said.

"You said that she's with Quatre so she's ok." Trowa told her.

"A prolonged stay in the elevator can make her puke." Olivia told him.

The elevator opened. They saw Haruka on top of Quatre.

"I know that position." Olivia said.

"Erase that data, my Olivia." Haruka said as she stands up.

Quatre stood too. They went out of the elevator.

"What were you doing inside?" Trowa asked.

"Jealous?" Haruka replied.

"I am." Trowa told her.

Haruka was surprise and turned red while Quatre giggled.

"You should have denied it. It surprises me when you're too frank." Haruka told Trowa.

Trowa smiled.

"Are you ready to talk about Galen?" Trowa asked her.

"If you are." Haruka replied.

"Quatre, thanks for being a brother for a few minutes." Haruka thanked Quatre.

"Anytime, Haruka." Quatre told her.

Haruka and Trowa left.

"What do you mean by position, Olivia?" Quatre asked.

"Classified." Olivia replied.

Trowa and Haruka went inside Trowa's room. They both sat on the bed.

"Tell me about Galen." Trowa said.

"He is your, I mean, our son."

"What do you mean?"

"I didn't know that I'll give birth months after you leave. I didn't even know that there's something forming inside me that time."

"What happened to us that night, he is the result."


"Where is he now?"

"I don't know. Lara took care of Galen for me. After the war, I searched for them. I even hired a detective for that."

"What about Shinjin, Karrie and your aunt?"

"They didn't know. I'll tell them if I saw them. I just wish that they are safe."


"All I want is a family, Nanashi. I have no memory of my real family but a few memory of a foster family. I don't want my son to feel the way I felt when I was a kid. I want him to remember his real family not the foster family. I want him to know that his real mother is always thinking of him but I don't know why this is happening to me."

Haruka cried.

"After this, we'll find Lara. We'll look for her and Galen. We'll be whole." Trowa assured her.

"What about your job?"

"They can live without me for a time being."

"Will Catherine understand?"

"I'm sure of it. She'll be delighted once she knew that her brother has a son. She'll have a nephew."

Haruka smiled.

"Thank you, Nanashi." Haruka said.

"No prob-"

Haruka kissed Trowa. Trowa was surprise but he closed his eyes and kissed her back. Trowa was more surprise when he felt her hand inside his pants. Trowa stopped kissing her and pushed her lightly.

"I'm sorry, Nanashi. I'm so sorry. I forgot to control myself." Haruka told him.

"On my bed now." Trowa said.

Haruka grinned and removed her shirt.
