To all of you who didn't know, this was written even before I started posting chapter one. That's my way of doing things XD Anyway, thank you for being so patient when I didn't upload any chapter for a while, I'm truly sorry for that. I'll try to post more often in my future fics ^^ Also, thank you for your comments and support throughout these weeks. You made me very happy! :D
Well, without further delay, here's the final chapter of All our memories. I'd love it if you told me you feel the same tenderness I felt when I finished writing it ♥ Your comments are MUCH needed~
Other chapters: 1 ~ 2 ~ 3 ~ 4 ~ 5 ~ 6 ~ 7 ~ Epilogue

“Really? Tell me more, please!” Subaru exclaimed, pointing at the album. “I didn’t know I was so cool when I was eleven.”

Shota laughed and turned the page. The next picture showed him sitting on his bed, in his room with Subaru sitting beside him in a chair. He was still wearing his bright red PE tracksuit, and it pretty much contrasted with the blue of Shota’s bedroom. Shota looked pale and sick; Subaru showed that naughty expression on his face, the same one that his parents always caught him with when he played hooky.

“As you see, I was sick, and you came to look after me,” Shota explained to him. “I hadn’t gone to school for almost a week so you came that day during lunchtime and said that you were going to stay with me so we didn’t get bored being by ourselves.” Subaru nodded. “And you’d have spent all night at my place if your parents didn’t come and take you home.”

“Well, we could have had some fun there,” Subaru muttered.

Shota heard him and reached to smack his head. “We didn’t do those kinds of things at that age!”

“Hey! I said nothing! You’re the one who brought that subject up,” Subaru replied, dodging his hand. “Besides, I’m sure I kissed you at least once back then.”

Shota folded his arms and glared at him.

“What? Am I right or not?”

“It was just a peck on the lips,” Shota blushed. “Because I had chocolate all over them, and you were hungry, or at least that’s what you said after.”

“Typical of me,” Subaru grinned.

Shota pointed at another picture in which they looked older. They were lying in the grass in front of the main building of their school. Subaru remembered going back there after the accident, and he felt sad for not having been able to think about Shota, even when the place seemed to be full of their memories. In the photograph, the younger’s head was on his chest, his eyes closed. Subaru was gazing at the sky.

“This was a few days before the accident,” Shota said, his voice quivering. “I-I was listening to your heart. It was beating quickly, uh, and--”

Subaru suddenly embraced him tightly, and the album fell down his knees. Shota stayed still, looking at the wind turning the pages back to the first picture again – where they were going down a slide together. He felt happy they could go down it another time.

“Thank you,” Subaru whispered against his shoulder. “I’m so glad we’re back together.” Shota put his arms around him too. “I mean, now I know those fakes who wrote letters to me after the accident were never really my friends. You were the only one.”

Shota opened his mouth to talk, but Subaru interrupted him for the second time.

“Don’t ever hide something like this from me again, huh?” he said, picking up the album. “I want to know if there is something else I have to feel proud of, okay?”

Shota nodded. The bell rang. They were late for class. I’m sorry about your sorrowful days, Subaru, he thought, I hope I can fix that someday. He was fond of the old Subaru, always there for him no matter the circumstances like his savior, his hero. And because of that, he wanted to take care of his memories inside the 19-year-old Subaru, for whom his love was even deeper.

For Subaru, the day his memories were gone was not sad at all. His situation afterwards was not pitiful either. After all, how many people have been able to save the life of the person they love? Subaru didn’t feel like he’d lost anything that day. In fact, he won something unbeatable. He might have forgotten about Shota for a long time, but now that his memories were back, Subaru thought he’d just done the noblest act he could have done: protect Shota, even almost at the expense of his own life.

They held hands and went across the yard, laughing and screaming and running the whole way, like the kids they once were.

Thanks for reading~
