(15 pairings) theme #12: love/hate relationship  
Title: futile
Pairing: Kain/Rosa
Rating: G
Word Count: 179
Disclaimer: No part of FFIV belongs to me. All hail Squaresoft.
Note: I've taken the liberty of redefining love/hate relationship for the purpose of this fic. My application of it is more like highly polarised unrequited love. Nobody shoot me.

* * *

The two of you have been left alone. You have not touched her. She is weeping again, quietly, so that she will not be heard and mocked. You stand in the corner, watching her. She does not look at you. For that, you are glad. Whenever she does look at you, her eyes stab you with reproach.

She trusted you because he trusted you. In betraying him, you betrayed her, and though the one seemed unavoidable, the other... the other, you would give anything to change.

She is not yours, though you keep her.

She will never be yours, however long you hold her.

Any chance you thought you might have is gone now, without question, and though you love her enough that having her this way is better than seeing her with another, you do not love her enough to release her. Not now. Not while you have yet to gain the trust of the one whom your actions serve.

She will never understand why you have done what you have. You will never be able to explain.

Wanted to add that I know all that sounds pathetic of me, and it is. I'm not going out of my way to avoid things with Rydia in them, it's not like Compilation of FF7 where I boycott something I don't agree with, this is a case where I've just seen so MUCH of Rydia that my view of seeing things that are mostly about her went from "hey cool" to "okay" to "...".

No, no, not at all! I completely get your frustration.
