"Hast du etwas Zeit fur mich. Dann singe ich ein Lied fur dich."

Luke began opening his tired, puffy eyes. He could hear a faint female voice singing. Was it a dream?

"Auf ihrem Weg zum Horizont. Denkst du vielleicht grad an mich."

He sat up on the couch and reached for his glasses on the table.

"Und dass sowas von sowas kommt."

The singing was getting louder. Luke turned his head to the side. The voice started sounding a bit familiar. He knew that angelic tone from somewhere but, was so groggy from abruptly being woken, he just couldn't figure it out.

"Liessen keine Platz fur sieger. Kriegsminister gibt's nicht mehr. Und auch keine Dustenflieger."

Luke stretched and pushed himself off the couch to stand.

"Hevte ziech ich meine Runden. Seh' die Welt in Trummern liegen."

He starts walking towards the doorway and pauses under the frame. He peeks his head out into the hall to see if anyone was possibly walking by. It was dark and silent. The only sound that could be heard was of the unknown girl singing. Luke realizes it is coming from the grand piano room and heads down the hall. With each step, the regal singing becomes louder and louder.

"Denk'an dich und lass' lhn fliegen."

Luke finally reaches the grand piano room. In front of the colossal windows at the end of the room stands a dark figure. The moon-light only shows that it is facing the windows. He can't see who it may be. The singing has stopped.

Before Luke has a chance to walk further into the room, the figure begins to move. He squints his eyes to intently watch it. It's head looks up at the radiant moon through the windows. The light caresses the figures face and illuminates it enough for Luke to properly see. He smiles. He finally remembers who's beautiful singing voice it belonged to.

"It's been so long since I've heard your singing."

The girl gasps and quickly turns around holding her chest. In the doorway, she sees Luke smiling.

"Did I scare you?" Luke playfully asks.

The girl's face turns bright red. She lowers her head and quietly replies with her broken English, "Yes. Did I vake you? I'm sorry.".

Luke starts walking towards the girl. She quickly lifts her head to watch his movement. Her sparkling blue eyes follow him and stop at the windows. Luke positions his arms behind his back and clasps his hands together. The girl turns her body completely around to face him. She notices how milky and soft his skin looks under the moon-light. She wanted to touch it.

"Have you ever thought about becoming an opera singer?" Luke asks without movement .

The girl perks up but doesn't answer right away. It makes Luke slightly turn to see her. She restlessly combs her fingers through her unusually long, black hair and looks up at him through her round-framed glasses. He unclasps his hands and turns his body around to face her.

"It's just that you have such a dignified voice. I feel it deserves more attention." Luke proudly proclaims through his humble smile.

The girl can't help but show a smile. No matter how timid she was feeling. She gradually stops running her fingers through her hair and replies to his statement, "If you are ze only attention my singing receives during my lifetime…I zink I am okay vith zat, Luke Valentine.". The girl grins from ear to ear. Luke's mouth slightly opens in admiration. He wasn't expecting to hear that from her but, it was exemplary.

Luke began walking back towards the doorway and like before, the girl's eyes followed. He pauses when he reaches it and turns his head. "Good night, Rip Van Winkle." The girl smiles. "Gute nacht, Luke."

He turns his head back and walks down the dark, silent hall back to where he was sleeping. Before a girl's alluring singing awoke him.
:iconhana-bakemono: requested a Luke Valentine/Rip Van Winkle fanfic and I was more than happy to do one for her. It's not one of my favorite pairings but, it's still cute. And the fic ended up being some good practice.

To be honest, I love writing but it would be nice to be able to set up commissions like people do with drawing. Or even art trades. Has anyone ever done that with writings? It sounds like a good idea to me but meh, I'd like some opinions first. :]

Either way, I hope you enjoy this, :iconhana-bakemono:! :heart:

Haha, really random pairing, but this was cute! You still had the tendency to switch from past to present tense, but present was used more in this so you seemed more concious of it this time. xD
I really like this, but yeah... pairing is strange. xD You should write some RipxZorin~ o3o
