Amu´s scream rang throughout the whole apartment, managing to wake up the neighbor who groggily yelled from the other side to shut up.
"Amu...I think you´ve upset the neighbor," said Ikuto smirking.
"That´s beside the point!"
Twenty one year old Amu stood her ground angrily from inside the kitchen, managing to glare at the twenty-six year old Ikuto who was standing in front of her with an innocent look.
"You! You!" she shrieked pointing at him with an acussing finger.
"I what Amu?" he asked casually, trying to contain his laughter at the apparent anger of his girlfriend.
"You know more than well what I´m trying to say you damn bastard!"
"If I knew I wouldn´t be asking you," He responded playing dumb.
"You ate the last of the chocolate ice cream there was in the fridge!"
"Oh that...yeah. It was very delicious and you know how much I just love chocolate ice cream," and as he said this he licked his lips only causing Amu to become even angrier.
"Ikuto..." Her hands had been clenched together, her knuckles white.
"Can you please tell me why you ate MY ice cream, from MY fridge that´s inside MY kitchen that´s inside MY apartment...WHERE YOU DO NOT LIVE IN!"
"We can arrange that and I can move in with you," He said as he approached her. Amu, too angry because of the whole situation, did not notice any of this.
"No. You will only move in with me when I want hell to rule over my apartment." And she crossed her arms in defiance
"Oh come on...Amu."
Finally realizing that Ikuto was up to something from his sudden change of tone, her anger faded and became flustered instead.
"I-Ikuto...what are you doing?" She asked him with a flushed face as he pushed her against the kitchen wall and pinned her hands above her head with his own.
"Convincing you to let me move in with you of course..." He whispered before attacking her neck with feather light kisses.
As he kissed her neck, her smell reached his nostrils and he moved up to nibble her right ear instead as to not lose control.
"I-ikuto..." she attempted to sound angry but it came out much more like a moan.
"Don´t tell me you´re still angry about the ice cream," he whispered in her ear as he slowly let go of her hands, freeing them.
"Y-yes..." she whispered, eyelids closed as he ran both of his hands up and down her sides.
"Don´t be," and he lowered his lips to hers. The kiss gentle at first, became more intimate as he ran his tongue accross her lower lip. The action caused her to moan, making it the perfect chance for Ikuto to deepen the kiss.
Amu could taste chocolate in Ikuto´s breath as he explored every single corner of her mouth with his tongue. Running her hands through his midnight blue hair, she fought with him in the intense tongue battle. But Ikuto got the better of the fight when he grabbed her by the waist and closed the very little space between them. Gasping at the sudden closeness of their bodies, she lost all concentration and just let Ikuto have his way for a little while longer.
"F-fine..." she breathed into the kiss, "I´m not mad anymore. But you´re still not moving in with me."
"Good girl but we´ll still see about the moving in part later," He said as he slowly ended the kiss and then smiled at her.
"Umm..." Amu said as she looked the state of both of them.
Ikuto´s hair was a mess and his lips were red. Amu herself looked rather disheveled as her clothes had become a bit wrinkled.
"We better hurry up," Ikuto said as both of them started to make themselves presentable again, "Its finally saturday and we´re going to the park."
"It looks like it might rain though," She pointed towards the window.
Ikuto turned to look out the aparment window which Amu was pointing at. The sky did seem rather clouded and the breeze was cold.
"Don´t worry, we´ll take an umbrella. Come on," and he grabbed her hand and pulled her towards the door.
It had been three months since Amu and Ikuto had returned to Paris, three months full of love and arguments but above all, of happiness.
Currently the couple was walking through the park hand in hand, enjoying the view until they decided to sit down at a bench for a while.
"Want some ice cream Amu?" Ikuto asked Amu as he got up from the bench.
"Sure! Go get me some chocolate flavored one to make up for the one you ate..." and she laughed with mirth in her eyes.
Just smirking at her, he turned around and went for ice cream.
'He´s really something,' Amu thought as she watched Ikuto walk towards the ice cream van, easily dodging some kids who were running at top speed.
'I´m really glad he came to Paris after all. I don´t know what I would have done without him even though he makes me flustered from time to time.'
As she smiled to herself, her train of thoughts came to a stop when a cone of chocolate ice cream was held up in front of her eyes.
"Here," he said as Amu grasped her own ice cream and Ikuto sat down beside her again.
"Thanks," and she started to lick her ice cream.
"What were you thinking about before I came back with the ice cream? You were smiling and all," asked Ikuto as he himself enjoyed of his ice cream, chocolate flavored by the way.
"Well," she blushed, "I was actually thinking about how happy I am that you actually did come with me to Paris."
Smiling warmly at her, he draped his right arm accross her slender shoulders, "I´m also happy that I came. Its thanks to Utau that I was actually able to come. She was the one who made me see I was being stupid by not coming after you."
"...I can´t leave the company but most of all I can´t leave my career." Ikuto said
"But you can leave Amu huh? That´s nice..." Utau sneered at him
"I don´t need you to be lecturing me Utau. I´m old enough to make my own decisions,"
"But you´re too stupid to realize that they aren´t good ones!"
"Then what do you want me to do huh? Run like a love sick boy after Amu and let the hard work that my family has put into this company go to hell? You want me to leave the violin? You want me t-"
A red mark formed on Ikuto´s right cheek, Utau´s hand still suspended in mid air.
"I want you to be happy..."
"But I can´t...the company Utau,"
"And who said it necessarily had to be you the one to take care of the company eh? I might be a woman and married but I can still take care of it."
"Just go Ikuto, I´ll take care of the company." and she smiled at him.
--End of Flashback--
"Remind me to thank her later," Amu laughed as she leaned back into the bench.
"Yeah," said Ikuto, licking his ice cream.
Not too much later, small rain drops began to fall and before they knew it, it was pouring with rain.
"Ikuto! I told you it would rain! And you didn´t bring the umbrella!" Amu stood up angrily from the bench, with Ikuto following on cue.
Ikuto just stared at Amu as they both became drenched in the rain.
"Ikuto, what are you staring at? Come on! Let´s get back to my apartment so we can dry off..."
But Ikuto did not budge and just continued to stare at her.
"Let´s kiss," He interrupted her.
"Let´s kiss in the rain. Every couple must do it at least once."
"Ikuto! It´s pouring rain like no tomorrow and its freezing cold but all you want to do is kiss in the rain?"
"Yes..." and he grabbed her by the waist before she could say anything more and kissed her.
Amu, totally forgetting that they were in the middle of the rain and in the cold, wrapped her arms around Ikuto as they kissed.
Minutes later, they seperated just in time before Ikuto gave a loud sneeze.
"Come on, let´s get back to my apartment."
Grabbing his hand, they ran out of the park and took a taxi back to her apartment.
When they got back to Amu´s apartment, they started to dry themselves after being drenched from the acid rain.
"Ikuto, I´ll go get some dry clothes for you. Make some coffee while I do that."
"Top cabinet, second division all the way in the back right?" He asked her from the kitchen.
"Yes," and she went to her room to get his dry clothes.
After entering her room, which was very different from her old room (no pink here see?), she walked over to her closet and took out a blue basket in which some of Ikuto´s could be found. Quickly finding some dry clothes for him, she was about to put the basket in when she remembered about socks.
"Socks...socks...here they are!"
Storing the basket back into the closet, she noticed a few pairs of Ikuto´s shoes beside hers.
'That´s strange,' She thought, but gave it no more importance and closed the closet.
Momentarily forgetting about the shoes, Amu walked in to her bathroom to get a dry towel.
"Wait a minute. Why is Ikuto´s toothbrush here?" she asked herself after spotting said object next to hers on the sink.
And if finally dawned in on her.
After the new found discovery, she headed back into the kitchen and handed Ikuto his dry clothes.
"S-since when have we been living together?"
"W-what?!" He sprayed his coffee all over the table at the sudden shock, after calming down for a bit, he turned back to Amu with a confused look.
"Did you know that we´re already living together?" Amu asked him as she slightly blushed and looked at him straight in the face.
"I don´t understand..."
"Most of your clothes are here, your toothbrush is next to mine, you sleep on the couch almost everynight, you always have breakfast and dinner here plus you know where every single thing in my apartment is."
"Oh," Realization finally dawning over him.
"...Um, maybe we should just bring the rest of your stuff here already." Amu turned away as she said this.
"Mmm, tomorrow then." He said and an idea hit his head and he smirked at her, "I just hope your parents don´t think we´re sleeping together."
"P-pervert! We haven´t...not yet...p-pervert!"
And the rest of the day seemed to progress with more teasing, kissing, and arguing as the rain kept pouring outside. Moving in is the next step in a relationship isn´t it? Who knows what more there is to come...
Author´s Note: So I finally got my internet service back up just a few hours ago...Yay! That was chapter one of the sequel. Woot woot! I hope you guys liked it. n.n Hoping its not like what they say: "Sequels are never good" or something along those lines...(o.O)
Basically, I tried to build up Amu and Ikuto´s relationship a bit in this chapter. Don´t really think I did a good job on it but I´ll try harder next time. :D
If you have any suggestions to make the story flow better, or if you find something that you didn´t like, feel free to tell. n.n
Also, for those of you who haven´t read the story "Moving?" it might be better to read it before reading this sequel. It will help you understand many things as the story progresses. Although you guys don´t have to if you don´t want to. n.n
As for the rating, for now I´ll leave it like this although it might go up in later chapters. This story will be mostly romance, humor and some drama in later chapters. Oh yeah, and Ikuto will be in his pervy self. (Hurrah!)
Please continue to read, I promise to do my best in this story. n.n
Anyway, review! Lots of reviews make me work faster. Hehe.
See you guys next chapter!
