A Little Fall of Rain

Work Text:

“Homura-chan? Are you crying? What’s wrong?”

 “Nothing... It’s just the rain.”

“Oh, really? Maybe we’ll see a rainbow later... Homura-chan, my back hurts...”

“It’s just the ground, Madoka. I’ll move you if you want." 

“No, no, don’t bother.”

“If you want to get out of the rain, it’s fine...”

“It’s fine, Homura-chan. Once the sky clears we’ll be able to see the rainbows from here. Until then... it’s only rain. It can’t hurt me, and you’re here. So I’m happy...”

Homura waited, but Madoka didn’t say anything more. No longer holding back her tears, she removed her Soul Gem from where it had been healing her friend. Without the power of her magic holding it back, the blood once again to flow out of Madoka’s torso, staining the concrete ruins beneath them red.

Homura gently wiped away the tears that had fallen onto Madoka’s face, carefully picking the girl’s head up from her lap and setting it gently on the ground as she lay out the body. “Don’t worry, Madoka. Sometime, soon, there’ll be a way that you and I can be happy together. I promise.”


A little fall of rain

Can hardly hurt me now

You're here, that's all I need to know

And you will keep me safe

And you will keep me close

And rain will make the flowers grow.
