Background: Takes place after the series but before the movie. Although
this is a sequel it was meant to run parallel to my earlier Asuka
monologue. This will be from Shinji's point of view

SPOILER WARNING: THIS COULD RUIN EVA FOR YOU. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED

The best way to think of it is as having something important to protect.
Like a gift given to you, and your job is to keep it safe. That's how it
is. Or at least thats how I thought it would be. Things can't ever stay the
same though...

She was cute as hell....I had to force my eyes away from her, otherwise I
would have simply followed her around. It was her eyes that caught me
first. I know it's strange for a guy, especially one my age to say, but
it's true.

The simplest way to describe them would be to call them blue. But that
doesn't sum it up. They aren't just blue. Sometimes their this bright blue,
so bright that they are almost grey. They dance right before you, light
shimmering as it touches those beautiful orbs.

Other times they become a deep, dark blue. Nearly black. Thats when they
become really dangerous. You could gaze into those eyes and withing seconds
you'd be gone. Only a shell would be left, your innerself plunged into
those eyes. It's like flying, your spirit is whisked away and you just
fall. Every thought that you may have had, before you lost yourself in
those eyes, ceases to be. All there is is darkness.

Usually I'm brought back to reality at this point by a slap or a piercing "
Dumkoff!", or, " Baka!" But it's always worth it.

There was one time when her screeching baka was the sweetest sound in the
world. When I realized her support cable had snapped I lost it. By the time
I was aware of what was going on, there was lava on all sides of me. It was
HOT! Understatement of the year right?

Then I saw her, dangling there, waiting to die. If she fell, I was going to
follow her, I knew it in that instant. I was dimly aware of Misato
screaming at me, but I couldn't make anything out. Things happened in slow
motion, the lava rushed passed me as the rip in the cable grew wider. In
desperation I threw my arm out and grabbed for anything. Later she told me
it looked as if I was completely in control. In reality the only thing that
kept me sane was her: " Baka. You show off".

I just wished she would love me back. Wait ignore that I don't think I
meant that. Well why not? She completes me in a way that no other person
ever has. She doesn't realize it, or maybe she does, but doesn't care.
People keep telling me to go for it...maybe I should. I'm so scared, what
if she doesn't want me?

I thought that I at least had a shot after we synched together so well. I
figured that she would at least respect me a little more. It didn't work
out that way, but it's ok. I guess she is one of my friends, and that's
better than nothing right?

Asuka Soryou Langley...you're the other part of me. If you ever understand
that know that I'll wait forever if I have to. That I swear. I love you.

Do you think she already knows?
