FOR THE FIRST TIME IN FOREVER
HELLO
fear. that was what had held raegan back from going to see grey. she had been back in new york for a whole year and yet the one person she had been most excited to see the minute she had touched down in the city was the one person she had avoided going to see. it was ridiculous, the raven haired young woman wasn't even sure why she was so afraid. it didn't make any sense. sure they had not seen one another in almost a decade, which could only really be seen as a good reason to go see him. but in rae's head it was like 'we haven't seen each other in almost a decade' which lead to 'what if he doesn't remember me? what if he doesn't care? what if we have both changed far too much for anything to be like it was?' it started with the fear and then it had snowballed out from there. everything she could she used as an excuse, she was too busy, she didn't want to bother him, she had to go do this, or go see about that. until finally a year had passed and she had still yet to see the blonde whom she had once called her best friend.

at some point raegan came to realize that she was being silly. either he would remember her or he wouldn't either they would hit it right back off or they wouldn't. eventually the guilt of having been living back in new york again, for a whole year and not looking him up had started to eat at her, until finally, in one of those moments where she found herself free of any other obligation for a while, she decided to put on her big girl underwear and go see grey. running her fingers through her hair, she had gotten up from the couch in her loft where she had been reading, or trying to at least. it had been more like staring at the words on the page till the black letters blurred together because she was lost in thought about this predicament that she had gotten herself into. she had thrown on some dark skinny jeans and black combat boots and a graphic tee that said something witty on it before grabbing her keys and leaving her flat, locking it up behind her. rae had known for a long time where she could find grey, it was just a matter of putting one foot in front of the other and going there.

if she were being honest with herself, she had no real excuses, because they didn't even live that far. if she were truly busy it wouldn't have taken her that much time to have passed his place on the street, walked in said hello, made plans for a later date. she hadn't done that though and in the end she had let it go on so long. she didn't even think about what she would say when/if he asked her why she was only coming to see him now if she had been here a year. she was too caught up thinking about things they had done in the past, sitting around talking in asl together, encouraging one another's art forms. since returning to new york, rae had kept up with him, she knew that he was a rising star in the art world and she had been so proud really, and thanks to that it had been easy enough to find his his gallery space and after that his studio, which was where she had headed off to. finally reaching the door to the building, she pressed the buzzer so she could get buzzed in, her heart thudding in her chest the whole while.

Things were good for Grey. They hadn't been quite this good in a while. His life wasn't horrible and after he'd started making a name for himself in Brooklyn, they hadn't ever been bad. It was a different kind of good. He didn't feel so alone. Loneliness was an emotion that he'd grown used to, was good at channelling into his art. Loneliness was an emotion everyone felt and so it was one of his favorite emotions to paint. He didn't shy away from painting happier emotions, it just seemed that the negative ones left a stronger impact. His art wasn't grotesque or overly dark, though there were a few that had a darker theme to them. He didn't use bright colors, didn't have bright and happy scenes, but there was an innate feeling whenever one looked at his paintings - a feeling of content, even within that loneliness.

His experience with loneliness had been quashed recently by Lucy. She made him feel as if he could belong somewhere. She didn't back away from him, shy away from his lack of speaking. She didn't hesitate in holding a conversation with him. Her patience was... amazing. There was something more to her, though, something that made her the person who could be all of that with him and at some point, Grey hoped to find out. As it was, he could only get to know her better, appreciate her presence and the way she made him feel in it. There had been a long moment of time where he didn't think he'd get that ever again. Not after Raegan left. Her leaving had sliced him open. The one person he'd ever felt understood him or who even tried to understand him was pulled from his life and he knew he'd never see her again.

There'd been a point in time where he'd foolishly let himself hope she'd come back, that life would finally give him a break. But of course, it hadn't, and so Rae was gone from his life forever. For a while, Grey thought he'd started to see her popping up - a singer with her face started to grace billboards and magazines. But he wrote it off as a coincidence. His mind playing tricks on him. Grey went about his life in Brooklyn, becoming who he was, making what he did. He thought about Rae often, of course. She'd been the best friend he'd ever had, the first and only girl he'd ever loved. The loneliness the thoughts brought was hard to get rid of, but eventually he learned to deal. And eventually he stopped feeling as lonely. And then he met Lucy and the loneliness almost went away entirely.

Grey wasn't painting loneliness today. He was painting something else entirely, though he couldn't quite name the emotion. It was different, lighter, more whimsical. His music was playing from his stereo in the corner. He wore grey sweatpants and a white t-shirt splattered in paint, his feet covered in blue and green mixed together. He'd pulled his hair back at the nape of his neck a long while ago after accidentally getting some purple in it. Grey was used to all of this. He was a walking art exhibit, just as Lucy had called them the day they'd met. There wasn't any shame in his being covered in paint, there was always some tucked away - hiding - on his body somewhere, which was why when the buzzer for the door rang throughout the place, he didn't hesitate in standing from his kneeling position on the floor in front of the canvas tarp to go and answer the door.

After sliding the giant metal door open, he had to grip it to keep himself standing upright. His eyes widened, his jaw went slack, at the sight of Rae standing in front of him. A ghost from his past that he didn't think he'd ever see again. She was older, of course he was older too, but he knew it was her. If this had been directly after she'd left, Grey would have thought he'd gone insane, but it wasn't and she was standing in front of him. She was real. His heart thudded in his chest and he tried to remember how to speak. Oh. Right. He'd never spoken. Not vocally anyway. Blinking, Grey lifted his hand in a wave, the action radiating as much disbelief as any voice might.

there was something seriously wrong with raegan, she was sure of it. for her to not have wanted to go see someone who had once meant so much to her, it was ridiculous, fear was not an adequate reason, believing that they both had changed so much was not an acceptable reason, and the fact that they had fallen off of the face of the earth where the other was concerned, well that was both a horrid reason as well as exactly why she needed and should do this. honestly raegan didn't even understand where everything had gone wrong. she and grey had known one another like the back of their own respective hands, they had been that good of friends, rae had been sure that at one point they might have both gotten to a place where it could be more, but that was years ago. after she had moved they had stayed in contact for a while, but eventually like most long distance relationships, even though theirs had only been a friendship, they had eventually fallen off with one another. it was something that rae regretted every time that she thought about him, if they hadn't just moved on with their lives this reunion would be so much easier for her right now.

as it was, the level of difficulty of it didn't matter, because she had to do this. she had put it off too long, and she couldn't any longer, both because she knew she shouldn't and because she felt that she literally couldn't. despite all the time that had passed, rae had never not missed grey, she had never once found someone who got her like he did. it was crazy because the dark haired young woman had band mates, people she legit spent almost every waking moment with, people who knew her inside and out, and yet still they didn't know her like grey had. it was scary to think that she might not have that ever again, and that was a part of why she was seeking out grey finally. she wanted to know if that bond they use to have was still intact. rae had to know for sure whether or not she was building it up in her head or if it was something unattainable for everyone else around her. it had been hard keeping up with him, reading articles on his gallery showings, seeing videos of or reading interviews he did, looking at his art, and not feeling as though she were missing something. it was a shame, because rae couldn't say that her life was anything but good right now, but she knew that there was one person who could make it better.

that was why her heart was hammering so hard inside of her chest she could hear it, that was why she felt like the gulp she swallowed got stuck in her throat, the air in her lungs was heavy, that every moment that passed felt like ten until the door in front of her was open. dark locks had covered her face, as she had looked at the ground, trying to compose herself until that door had opened, if it was going to open, but then it had, and her head all but snapped up to look at the different but oh so familiar blonde in front of her. he had grown his hair out, he was about a foot taller than she remembered, towering over her now, but he was covered in paint just like she always remembered, and that didn't even bother her, didn't stop her from totally disregarding the mess he might make of her clothes, and the wave he sent in her direction, as she threw her arms around him. "hey grey", she mumbled against his chest. realizing how out of the blue and random this was though she quickly drew back, gnawing on her bottom lip. "i'm sorry i didn't call", she muttered shyly. she didn't know if she meant just for not calling before she came over, or for not having called in the past several years. it was like she was seventeen again, shy, awkward, but with grey, and if that was how it was going to be then somehow she still felt that it would be okay.

GREY J. NORWOOD + 719 words. don't look at me, i have a lot of feels about these two already.
