A/N: This is only my second Beyblade story. The other one is called 'Another Heartache On My List?' It's the same main pairing (Kai/Rei) and it's on-going as well. So I hope you enjoy this one, as well as the other one. Special thanks to my beta, Broekenshardsofmyheart99!

The lightning, he settled on, was what woke him up from his slumber. Sweat ran down his unclothed body, causing the perspiration to make his sheets stick to his body. It made him pull off the covers away from him and unto the carpeted floor that looked more like a dark sea from his bed. Sitting up, he shook his head and remembered the weather man's report on the television. For once, he had been right about the thunderstorms, but it didn't make the situation any better. The headache kept on pounding the inside of his head, but he ignored it. It wasn't as if the aspirin did anything to cure his headache, nor anything else for that matter.
Deciding to go back to sleep, he closed his eyes and began to find his comfortable position in bed. It wasn't a straightforward task, no matter what he did. There were times when it took him six hours to go back to sleep once he had woken up in the night. It was perhaps that that made people think that he was a night person. All of his friends seemed to think so, at least.
When he at last become conscious of the fact that he was not going to get anymore sleep, he got out of bed and headed for the shower. As he made his way to the bathroom, he stopped to look at the mirror above the dresser. In the dark, he could not see the colors of his furniture, floor, or even walls, but he could see himself. Most of the time he avoided mirrors as much as possible, since he didn't feel the need to be like the many other people he knew. He thought of them as vain, but never once uttered that to them. And now, more than ever, he had a reason for not letting them know anything about him. It was his infuriating friend that had introduced him to someone his age. It was not that he was interested in a romantic relationship with anyone, much less a male, but there was something that occurred when he was around the other male. Ever since that had begun, the vivid dreams and appalling headaches arose as well. Yes, it was ridiculous to blame a single person for all the awful things that have happened to him, but until he found a better explanation, he was sticking with the one he had.
"Rei," he whispered. That was the accursed name of the male that had come into his life and disrupted whatever it was that he used to have. Every dream he had was about Rei, that never changed. They were always together in different places that never looked familiar to him.
A faint ringing caught his attention. The phone. He walked over to it, not caring whether the person calling would hang up or not before he got there. "Hiwatari residence," he greeted, pinching the bridge of his nose. There seemed to be static interfering with the phone call since could not make out the voice of the other person. "Who is this?" he asked, patience becoming thinner by the second.
"Kai." He recognized the voice at once. Then it made sense to him. Who else would call him late at night, when he was supposed to be sleeping?
Exhaling a somewhat crude breath he began to talk. "Takao… What is it this time? It's raining, and you should be asleep." His eyes widened when the words he had spoken had sunk in. It made him sound like a mother hen. However, mother hens protected their chicks, contrary to what Kai often felt like doing to those around him. "Why are you calling?"
Rather than hearing a snicker, he heard a groan. "We got into some trouble. I wasn't drunk or anything, but I lost control of the car. And now everyone's injured, except for me and Max. Rei was getting a lift from us and now he's injured!" The urgency and dread in Takao's voice startled him. He had never behaved like this before, but then again, they had never gotten into an accident before.
"I'll be over to the hospital. Are you at the one--"
"Yeah, that one!" Takao exclaimed, answering Kai's question at once. "Kai, do you think he'll be okay? And Tala's injured too! Damn it, this is all my fault."
Before the situation got out of control, Kai decided to get dressed as he listened to his friend's anxious rant. "Look, that's the best hospital, so they'll be okay. The accident could've been more severe, so just relax." He pulled on his jacket and headed to the door of his bedroom. "I'm on my way there. Is there anything else I should know?" The answer almost caused him to lose balance on the stairway leading down to the front door.
"Yeah, she's here too."
