Rare smile: Chapter one
The navy haired boy rushed out of his room and leapt down the stairs in excitement. "Yahoo!" he cried running into the kitchen and almost knocking his Grandpa over.
"Hey watch where you're going little dude!"
He sat down at the table and eagerly started munching down his breakfast. "I can't believe that there's only one more day to go! It snowed last night again! Man, I can't wait to get out there!" He got up and with a large smile said. "See ya later Grandpa , I'm going outside."
Getting ready to run out he was suddenly pulled back. "Hey what's the big idea?!" he demanded.
"Hold on a second little dude whether it's Christmas Eve or not, the dojo still needs cleaning and that's your responsibility this week."
"You've got to be kidding me!" cried Tyson struggling to get away.
"Well hurry up then the longer you waste standing here the longer time it will be before-" The old man stopped for a moment and looked at his grip. "What?!" All that he held was his Grandson's t-shirt. "Tyson!!!"
The boy rushed quickly back upstairs to his room. "Sorry Granpa but there's no way that today of all days I'm gonna clean your stupid dojo!" he said to himself as he pulled a sweater over his head. After shoving on a pair of sneakers and wrapping a scarf securely around his neck he opened his window.
Every time his Grandfather wanted him to practice Kendo when he couldn't be bothered or make him clean the house he would simply retreat to his room and then climb carefully out of the window. "He, he, he. I'm so smart!" he boasted to himself as he carefully climbed up on to the ledge. But unfortunately this time he forgot one thing…
"What the-?!" his foot suddenly slipped sending him flying off the ledge. "Ahhh!"
Thankfully for him the deep layer of snow cushioned him from sub staining any injuries. He stuck his head out of the snow sweatdropping. "I guess I forgot how slippery snow can be…" Shaking off the snow from himself he hurried out of the garden so as not be spotted by his grandfather who would undoubtedly be mad at him.
The world champion walked down the white covered streets with a large smile on his face. He really did love this time of year and all of this snowed reminded him of the world championship held in Russia. It felt so long ago now…
"I wonder what the other are up to?" Max was still in New York with his mum, Rei was back at his village in China and Kenny wasn't around at the moment since he was away on vacation with his parents. "I wonder if they got the card I sent them."
Tyson shivered slightly, the coldness wrapping around his bare skin. Suddenly he remembered. "Kai!" Yes the mysterious red eyed leader of the blade breakers did not live all that far way. "It's been along time since I last saw Kai. I wonder how he's doing." Tyson smiled. "I think I'll go see him. Um, just to pass the time of course…"
By the time Tyson finally reached Kai's house he was exhausted. "I wish there was an easier way to get here." He sighed before pressing the button on the intercom.
"Yes?" came a somewhat dull voice. "Can I help you?"
"Um, hi my name's Tyson. I'm a friend of Kai's, from the Blade breakers."
"Do you have an appointment?"
"An appointment? Um I didn't know I would need one…"
"Would you wish to make one?"
"Look would you just please tell I'm here!" he yelled back growing irritated.
"Very well, I will alert young master Kai of your presence and see if he permits you to enter."
Tyson childishly stuck his tongue out at the intercom despite the fact that no one could see him.
A minute or two later the gates opened. Tyson quickly walked up to the house following the clean snow less paths. An old stern looking man in a suit opened the door and gestured for him to enter. He led Tyson up the flight of stairs towards Kai's room. This was actually the first time Tyson had ever been in side his team captain's house.
"Master Kai, a Mr. Tyson is here to see you." announced the butler as he gently knocked on the door.
"Send him in." replied Kai.
The man opened the door allowing Tyson to enter and left. "Um thanks."
The greyish blue haired boy lay on his bed, his red eyes gazing upwards at the ceiling.
"Hey Kai, how are you? Wow you're room is huge!" cried Tyson in awe.
Kai got up. "What are you doing here?"
"Such a warm greeting." chuckled Tyson. "I came here to see you of course."
Tyson stopped gazing about and stared at Kai. There were a few moments of silence as the pair of boy's stood staring at each other. Feeling uncomfortable Tyson decided to speak up. "Uh so… um did you get the card I sent you?"
"Yeah, um thanks…" replied Kai unsure of what else to say.
"No problem. I sent one to everyone else too. So are you excited?"
"Christmas of course!" cried Tyson in disbelief that Kai had no idea what he was talking about.
"Christmas isn't really my thing."
"How can you not like Christmas?! Christmas time is the best time of the year! Have you even got a Christmas tree?"
"Tyson to me Christmas is nothing but a waste of time."
"How can you say that?! Christmas is awesome! I mean you get presents and are able to eat great food plus you get to spend it with the people you care about."
The other boy sighed. "Listen Tyson if you just came here to try spread some of that holiday joy crap then you can just leave. I'm not into such ridiculous and pathetic things."
"Don't be such a scourge! I just walked all the way here in the freezing cold to see you and this is the thanks I get?!"
Kai snorted. "No one asked you to come."
"I know that! I came here to see you! To be with a person I care about!" Kai's eyes widened. Cared about?
"I-I uh mean… well a little appreciation would be nice!" Kai stared in perplexity at the smaller boy. Why had he come here? What was so important about Christmas that he had to come see him? Kai knew that all the other members of the Blade breakers weren't around. Could it be that Tyson came here because he was lonely? No, Tyson was never lonely. Besides he had his Grandpa as well as Dragoon. If it wasn't that then what hell was the reason?
"Um Kai? Are you all right?" asked Tyson sounding slightly worried.
Kai awoke from his thoughts. "Do you want something to eat or drink?"
Tyson blinked. "Huh?"
"Well you were just after complaining that you had to walk all the way here so you obviously must be tired. At least if I give you something you'll shut up."
"Oh. Okay then…" Kai opened the door and walked out, Tyson quickly following him. He led the boy downstairs to the dining room and asked for some soup to be brought.
"Wow this is great!" declared Tyson slurping it down vigorously. "It's a hundred times better than the stuff my Grandpa makes!"
"There that should warm you up." replied Kai with a small sigh,
"Hey could you tell the cook to pour another bowl of this stuff!" cried Tyson indicating to the same stern looking man who stood near by. The man glowered at him for a moment before walking off to fulfil his master's guest's request.
"I still don't get it. Why in the hell is it bothering me so much?" thought Kai.
"So Kai what have you been doing lately?" Tyson asked curiously.
"Nothing that would interest you." he replied sourly. Tyson chose to ignore him.
"It's been a long time since we've all been together hasn't it? Me, you, Max, Rei and Kenny. I miss the time we spent competing for the world championships. Man we met a lot of people, didn't me?"
"I guess I'm a little sad that it's all over. I mean it's great that we won and all but now that we have there's no much left to achieve. Hey Kai do you still practice Beyblading?"
The other boy snorted. "Of course. It's the only way to improve."
Tyson gave a small chuckle. "I still remember those days when I was an amateur blader striving to be the best and challenging everyone I came across."
"Well for the most part you still act that way."
"What?! Just what the heck are you trying to say?!" He demanded, but stopped when he noticed a small hint of a smile on his team-mates face. His impression softened and he snorted. "Remember I still am the world champ you know."
"Yes, I know…" Kai whispered to himself.
"Your soup sir." announced
the butler placing the bowl in front of Tyson.
"Great! Hey wait! Where's my bread?!"
Suppressing a sigh he placed the bread down beside the bowl. "Your 'bread', sir."
"Thanks!" he cried grabbing the bowl and dunging his bread in. "Hey Kai aren't you going to have some?"
"I'm not particularly hungry." replied Kai trying to look anywhere but the other boy's direction.
"Um, Kai you don't celebrate Christmas do you?" he asked putting the bowl down.
"I thought that would have been obvious."
"Well why don't you?"
"Not everyone celebrates it, Tyson."
"I know that but I just can't understand why you hate it."
"I never said I hated it…" he stopped and sighed. "Look can we just drop it?"
"Okay." agreed Tyson not wishing to make his team mate mad. Although he would never admit it out loud, Kai was somewhat scary when he was angry. An idea formed in his mind but… He gazed timidly over at the other boy and bit his lip. Should I? Would… would he get angry with me? Or-
"What's wrong?" asked Kai, realising from the look on the other boy's face that something was troubling him.
"Huh? Oh, oh nothings wrong!" cried Tyson flapping his arms about and trying to act normal.
Kai held his gaze. "I'm not as stupid as you Tyson. I know that something is the matter. Now tell me what it is."
Although his outside exterior didn't show it Kai was surprised with himself too. Since when am I so worried about what other people feel?
He knew if the situation were the other way around he would have been cold to Tyson and told him to mind his own business.
Tyson felt his face turn red and found that he was incapable of looking Kai in the eyes. What in the world was wrong with him? Big deal if Kai said no. It wasn't the end of the world. It was just the way Kai was. "I-I was wondering… um I know you don't celebrate Christmas or anything but I uh was wondering if maybe you'd want to come spend the night at my house. We could keep each other company and it would be fun since we don't get to see each other that often." Kai stared unsure of what he was asking.
"I mean you don't have to if you don't want to! I guess I just thought I would ask…" Tyson wanted him to spend the night at his? That was certainly an unusual proposal. What he didn't understand however was why it had taken Tyson so long to ask him. Sleeping at Tyson's house, why would he be interested in something like that? Wasn't it just like those things that little kids had? Sleepovers? Kai would have laughed if it hadn't been for the fact that he actually wanted to accept the boy's proposal. What the-?
"Kai?" The bluish haired boy awoke from his thoughts and looked at the smaller boy for a few moments. What was it about him that…
"Um, well do you? I uh mean do you-"
"Fine I'll spend the night."
"I mean if-" he stopped and blinked. "What? You-you mean you'll stay?!" he exclaimed in disbelief.
He sighed. "That's what I said didn't I."
A huge smiled formed on Tyson's face. "Yay Kai this is great!" he cried rising from his chair. "I'm sure we'll have a lot of fun, and Grandpa he's all ready made lots of food and-"
Kai got up from the table and started to walk away. "Kai, where are you going?"
"If I'm going to be staying at yours, I'll need to pack won't I." he replied not bothering to look back.
"Oh yeah sure!" The navy haired boy rushed towards him.
Stupid idiot. I agreed to stay at his house to stay at his house, it's not like I accepted a proposal of marriage or something. He stopped for a moment grasping what he had just said. What?! I meant-
"Hey Kai is something up? Your cheeks are kind of red."
"There's nothing wrong! Now shut up before I change my mind."
Tyson sighed. "All right then."
Groaning he continued to walk on. Stupid idiot…
