I was woken by the feeling of Malachi's tail wrapping around my waist, as I opened my eyes she moved closer and nuzzled me until I was awake. "How did you sleep?" she asked.
"Perfectly, as usual" I said. I then leant forwards and pressed my lips to hers; wrapping my arms around her I pulled her in closer and stroked the back of her mane. She did the same, placing her paw on the back of my head she then also pulled me closer into the kiss. I could feel my problems or bad memories melt away the longer we kissed each other.
When the embrace broke we both smiled, we had not kissed like that in many months and it felt just as good as before. She pushed the sheets off and sat up, stretching her legs out she then stood up. Slipping on her gauntlets she then left the room to do her exercises, I decided to get up myself. As I left the room to make breakfast I remembered Sapphire.
I opened the door to her room to check if she was ok, she was still asleep so I did not disturb her. I decided to make eggs Benedict again as I had three eggs left, one for each of us. When I was stirring the sauce I felt some paws cover my eyes and a fuzzy nose nuzzling my ear.
"Guess who" Malachi said.
"Hello petal" I said. She giggled slightly "Making my favourite again?" She asked.
"I thought I might since I have three eggs left" I replied.
"I will wait downstairs" she said.
I dished the food up and cut a slice of toast in two, after spreading a small amount of butter on them I then poured some orange juice into a glass and placed everything onto a tray. I took the tray upstairs to Sapphire's room. When I opened the door she woke up, I placed the tray on her lap.
"Breakfast time" I said.
"Thank you" she replied. "I have to say I have never been treated this well in my life"
"Not even by Lucy?" I asked.
"I'm afraid not" she sighed. "But I must try and forget that now"
"Very wise" I said as I left the room.
Grabbing Malachi's and my breakfast I placed them on the dining table. She started to eat as soon as I gave it to her. "So what are we going to do today?" she asked.
"I need to go to the supermarket, while I'm there you take care of Sapphiremon" I said.
"Very well, but what about after that?" she asked.
"I'll think about it" I said since I wasn't sure what to do. After I took the plates and tray back to the kitchen I made my way into the garage. I took the keys to the Mazda and I left the house to buy more groceries, as I made my way down the aisles in the supermarket I noticed something. As I was about to pay for what I had bought I decided to buy something for Sapphire, so o the way back I stopped off at a clothes store and I bought her a gift and I also got something for Malachi.
When I returned I found Malachi and Sapphire sitting on the sofa. I took the food and drink upstairs before returning to the car to collect their gifts. As I entered the house again I was carrying a large plastic bag.
"I have something for you Sapphire" I said holding up the bag.
"A, gift? For me?" she said, she seemed very shocked.
"Sure, close your eyes" I told her.
She closed her eyes and I took out what I had bought her. "Ok, open your eyes now" I said. When she did she was thrilled by her gift. I had given her a black sleeveless jacket just like the one Malachi wears, I handed it to her and she tried it on. She looked up at me and smiled "Thank you so much" she said. "It feels so amazing"
I then looked at Malachi and told her to close her eyes. She did as I said and I then gave her the gift. I clipped it to her tail and told her to open her eyes again. When she did she looked at her tail in amazement, I had given her a purple Amethyst crystal bracelet that clipped half way up her tail that made it look like two separate parts.
"It looks beautiful" she said. "Thank you Kyle" She then kissed me on the cheek. I then looked back at Sapphire before reaching into the bag and pulling out yet another bracelet. This one was made of black Hematite I clipped it to her tail just like I did with Malachi. They both seemed to like their gifts very much, especially Sapphiremon.
"I never had such nice gifts before" she said. "I, I can't believe that a human could be so kind towards someone like me"
"I treat Malachi better than I do myself, I don't see why I shouldn't treat you any different" I said.
She smiled, her emerald green eyes lit up like little fireflies. Malachi then turned my head to face her and she kissed me on the lips before standing up. "I must say you outdid yourself this time" she said. "This clip is just stunning".
"Not as stunning as the person wearing it" I said.
Malachi's eye streaks blushed "It's very nice for you to say that" she said.
I then decided on what we would do that day, I told both of them to get into the car and I would take them somewhere special. I thought that I would show Sapphire what life could be like with us, despite her injury.
