This little ficlet is written for mews1945. Thank you for your links to Celtic Thunder - without you I would never have discovered them and they are so amazing. I really love their CD's - and the DVD is ordered, too.
Okay, it's my first Casey & Zeke - it's in English and without beta ... but maybe you'll like it a little bit.
Title: Like a bird without wings
Pairing: Casey / Zeke
revised story: January 2016
Today was one of these days.
Casey waited for Zeke for two hours now. But he wouldn't come anymore. He just knew it. And it did hurt. For six months they were together now. Six months, that Zeke had kissed him for the first time and turned his world around. Six wonderful months, six difficult months.
Casey loved Zeke. But he was still unsure what Zeke felt for him. He never talked about it. And it was almost impossible to read his mind. He had learned to hide his thoughts from others well.
Casey knew the reason, too often someone had betrayed and hurt him. The thick shell he had built up around him was hard to break through. There were moments full of tenderness and nearness. But there also were days, when Zeke completely withdrew into himself. Then he couldn't bear anyone around. Not even Casey. Days like these made Casey feel uneasy. He was afraid, that one day Zeke might not be able to find the way back to him.
A sudden noise near his window tore him out of his thoughts. He opened it and looked around. But there wasn't a soul in sight. Probably only a bird or a squirrel in the old oak tree. But then he noticed the envelope on the windowsill.
He picked it up and turned it to and fro. It wasn't labeled. What kind of stupid joke was this? But finally, his curiosity won. Inside he found a letter, written on a simple, white sheet of paper. Instantly he noticed the writing.
His heart suddenly beating wildly, he stared at the words.
Do you think, I would forget our anniversary? Six months together with you? Z.
Z for Zeke! Woah.
With shaking fingers, Casey turned the letter around and slowly he started to read, word by word, again and again. The sight slightly blurred because his eyes were filled with tears. Tears of happiness.
Like a bird without wings
That longs to be flying
Like a motherless child
Left lonely and crying
Like a song without words
Like a world without music
I wouldn't know what to do
I'd lost without you.
You are my guardian angel
My light and my guide
Your hand on my shoulder
And you by my side.
You make everything beautiful
You make me complete
Everything in my world
I lay at your feet.
I know, I am not good with words, but I want you to know, that you are the very best that has ever happened to me.
I love you
