A/N: I really shouldn't be writing Golden Sun when I haven't finished the game (or come close to finishing it,) but... here it goes... :wince:
I'm dedicating this fic to a very special holiday. n.n Nope, not Valentine's Day... nope, not President's Day... hey, stupid, my BIRTHDAY! XD;
Okay, okay, it's sad. Making my own birthday present. But I woke up this morning and it just sort of popped in my head. And traditionally, I'd be doing a ToS fic, but I'm also using this as a Happy Va gift to Ame because I never got close to starting that PicardFelix pic I was gonna draw. (Ame: Don't even ask, I never even got close. Nada. Nothin'. THE END. BOMB!)
Disclaimer: I am the Genki-dama! BOMB! Oh, and uh, I don't own anything that belongs to someone else. XP
It seemed like an ordinary morning. Waking up in the middle of nowhere, pulling out the little notebook and checking to make sure nothing out of the unusual was happening. But as he flipped to the pages of that week, a statement was just blaring out at him.
"What's with that look?" Jenna prodded Felix, as he sat there, staring. "Felix? Are you-"
"What's today's date?" he asked, his voice quivering.
"Uhh... the twenty-first of February. Why did you-" She saw what he was looking at. "Oh, wow. It's Sheba's birthday tomorrow."
"Crud!" Felix pouted. "Sheba almost punched in my face for not remembering Christmas!" He groaned as he took the notebook and started to lightly pound it into his head. "She'll kill me for not remembering her birthday!"
"She blames for me for everything." Starting to pout-cry, Jenna patted his back before a lightbulb sparked in her head, soon bursting into flame.
"How about you and Piers go get stuff for a party?" Blink blink. "We can throw it right before leaving for Lemuria!"
"Before I agree to this, can I ask one question?" Jenna nodded. "If Sheba fell from the sky, then how do we know when her birthday is?"
"Well, we celebrate the day she fell to Lalivero." She shrugged. "It's good enough, isn't it?"
"Fine, fine. I'll go get the stupid... stuff." Felix got up to walk away when he heard his sister yell in the back:
"And don't forget Piers!"
Felix facefaulted. Not cool.
"So, it's Sheba's birthday tomorrow?" Piers asked, annoying Felix further.
"Yes, it is."
"Hm, well, I guess Lemuria can wait a day or two longer..." Felix was really trying hard to suppress his anger against the new companion. "Hey, Felix, I've got a question for you."
"Yes?" the Venus adept answered through gritted teeth.
"Is something bothering you?"
As if Piers hit a soft spot, Felix spat out, "No, of course not! Why would something be bothering me! It's not like-"
"You're suddenly yelling at me?" the other adept said, silencing Felix. "So, what's bothering you?"
"Nothing." He shook his head as he almost tripped on a stone. "Nothing at all."
"And do you have any idea where we are?"
"Nothing-" He stopped for a moment to absorb the second question. Then he looked around to see if he could answer that. "No. Not at all. Don't you have a map?"
"A map? No, I don't. I thought you had one on you. You don't?..."
"Because I thought you had one!" Crickets chirped between the suddenly dead air. "Crud."
"Hey, I'm sure we'll find our way! Madra can't be too far from here, right?"
"What if we went the other way?"
"I doubt we went the opposing direction, my dear." It gave Felix a second or two before stopping and staring Piers straight into his golden eyes. "Did you just call me your dear?"
"What? Something wrong with that?" Something of a low growl bellowed in his throat. "And I thought only animals growled," he chuckled.
"Haha, so funny, my dear," the annoyed male emphasized.
They continued to walk on for an hour or two, conversation ending at Felix's remark. It took a little more thought before the Lemurian could say anything. "It's me isn't it?"
"Hm?" Trying to look at Piers, the afternoon sun temporarily blinded Felix, and he blinked as the other continued. "You're angry at me, aren't you?"
"Why would you say that?" he said, a hint of sarcasm mixed in the question.
"So, how do I irritate you?"
This was a difficult question. How had Piers made him tick? It wasn't like he did anything, except for the few weak excuses such as no one depended on him as much anymore. Which could have contributed to the problem... but still. Or maybe it was that he didn't want to admit it, but Piers definitely outwitted him. Only other person who could do that (currently) was Kraden. Alex didn't count at the moment. Or maybe... it was that other feelings were buried under that? "Felix? Are you going to answer me?"
"Eh!" Felix was snapped into the current happening world. "Oh yeah, uh... you... don't irritate me-"
"Yes I do. Just honestly answer the question," Piers was now getting annoying himself, putting his hands on his hips and pursing his lips like an annoyed housewife would.
"Well... I... don't know," he finally said. "I honestly don't know."
"So I'm just one of those people that you're annoying at just because?"
"I don't know already!" Felix yelled, lifting his arms in the air. "Okay! There! You've got the stupid answer!"
"If I really did know, I'd tell you! But honestly, I don't know! Maybe I was just meant to hate you!"
"Or maybe there is something, and I just can't figure it out! So-" He was surprised when something touched his lips: but it wasn't anything like a hand. The contact between the two was no more than three seconds, and Felix found himself unable to move as his face became a beet. "Wh-what was that for!" He finally jumped back, cheeks seeming to be on fire. Piers couldn't help chuckling. "Hey, why are you laughing, you pervert!"
"Your reaction was a little different than what I expected," he said, finally able to calm himself. "I was expecting you to yell at me and run away, but you just stood there. Almost like a love-stricken girl-"
"Well, I'm not gay, like you!"
"Who said that? It was an innocent kiss between two friends... like family members would."
"Friends don't normally kiss! At all! And since when were we friends! I thought we were talking about why I was annoyed at you!"
"Okay, so maybe it was a way to shut you up." Felix was slightly taken aback by that. "You just keep going and going... but violence isn't the answer."
"Yeah, yeah, sure..." But his face remained a vivid red. Looking up, he noticed a giant shadow overhead. "Hey, is that Madra?"
"Seems like it," Piers answered. "Now we're not lost, and we can go get all that good stuff for tomorrow!" Felix cocked his head. "Oh, please don't tell me you've forgotten."
"The reason we're even out here? Sheba's birthday?"
"Oh, yeah! Duh!" For the first time all day, Felix laughed. He laughed. Piers smiled. Maybe they'd finally be getting along soon.
A/N: Okay, this is going to be longer than I expected. But on the brighter side, I'm getting better using DESCRIPTION:cue gasping audience: Scary, 'tis is not?
If you haven't figured it out yet, this fanfic takes place before they go to Lemuria. Ever. Because... well... that's how far I am in the game. :kicks a wall: Stupid squid thing on the ship! Must... kill... X.x;
Maybe it's too early to imply any romance for Picard (Piers). But, hey, it's fun anyway. XP Freedom of speech! So BLEAH. Which reminds me, flames will be used... hmm... oh! Flames will be used in my flamethrower against the intolerable people. And everyone in this household excluding my little sister and my dog. Maybe my muses. X3
Final note for people waiting for updates of Just Follow Your Heart: I'm probably about halfway through the update. I'm updating part by part... just guess who shows up? Wow, I gave it away, I hope not a lot of you are reading this. x.x; Anyway, be ready for a little randomness thrown in there. Really. It was more like something you'd see in QFTUH! and BMM. Hehe, I'll shaddup now.
