this is what happens when suzanami fics.
Prompt: #83 - Lost
Characters: Fuu, mentions Ferio
NOTES!: Set after part one of the manga. --"I knew I put it in my pocket, but when we returned to Tokyo, I couldn't find it anywhere." --"You tried to find it, then?"
She couldn't stop looking even when she knew it wasn't there. The ring that Ferio had given her, she'd kept it in her blazer pocket while they were in Cephiro. Sometimes at night or when Umi wasn't looking, she slipped her hand inside her pocket, wiggling the ring onto the tip of her finger. He was strange, but she couldn't forget about him. How silly to give his earring to her. But the way he spoke, he seemed very serious about this gift.
But the ring was gone now. She turned every pocket in her uniform inside out. She even checked her ears (they weren't even pierced for goodness sake) and her fingers. She looked inside her shoe, in her bra, everywhere it could possibly have been. She even tore through her school bag multiple times, despite not taking it with her to Cephiro. She wondered if perhaps it had been spirited to her bedroom somehow. She looked in every possible place she could imagine it would be, but after a week or so, she accepted the loss.
Most days she thinks about the Princess, about Caldina, about Clef. Often she wonders if the new Pillar has been put in place yet. She turns her hands over and over, and she can almost see blood on them. She swears she can see blood on them. It's trite. But sometimes, when her heart is too heavy to think about Emeraude anymore, she thinks about Ferio. She wonders if the ring would've fit on her fourth finger. She wonders how he's doing. If the ring he gave her is lost somewhere between worlds or if it somehow returned to him. She wonders if he cares. And she doesn't understand why this bothers her so much.
