Sighing, the man shoved his key into the lock of the door. He was soaked, the rain creating a series of goosebumps all over his muscular body. Kid pushed his shoulder into the door, jarring it open and stepping inside. He took his shoes off, setting them next to the pair of black scuffed tennis shoes beside the front door.
'What am I going to tell her? Oh sweet Lord, I won't be able to bare that disappointed look on her face." Kid thought to himself. 'Telling Chrona that I got laid off the week before Christmas? Not on the top of my list.'
Kid heard the static of the radio playing holiday tunes and smiled to himself when he also heard Chrona humming along to the songs quietly. Setting his bag down on the couch, the man tiptoed towards the kitchen to surprise his girlfriend.
Chrona was bent over, facing the oven. She had a thermometer sticking out of the bun inside the oven, probably making sure the bread was finished cooking. Hearing the girl sigh, Kid could guess that it wasn't done yet. The lavender-haired girl leaned back up and turned around, coming face-to face with her lover's chest.
"Oh, Kid. I um, didn't hear you come in. When-When did you get home?" Chrona asked him, leaning upwards to peck him on the cheek, blushing the entire time.
"Just a few minutes ago actually. But what are you doing?" Kid responded. Chrona was apparently attempting to cook dinner. They almost never cooked for themselves. The pair nearly lived on take-out, because neither one of them had cooking abilities.
"Cooking dinner. Well, I'm trying to anyway. You know tha-that I'm, I'm not any good. I thought I should do it though; I have something, um, something important to tell you and I wanted it to be special." The shorter of the two smiled at her yellow-eyed lover, still blushing, wondering why he looked sad and embarrassed.
"Very well then. But I have something important to tell you as well, my dear. Would you mind if I went first?"seeing Chrona nod, he led them over to the worn-down couch, moving his work bag to sit on the floor. He wasn't looking forward to this. Chrona wondered what was so bad that Kid had to tell her that was making him embarrassed. Maybe she had done something worng. But what could it have been? Chrona had cleaned the small apartment, double checking that the few pictures on the walls were symmetrical and the sparse furniture were placed correctly throughout the room. There was a slight fluttering in her stomach, something he had accounted as nerves for the last few weeks. But she knew now what they were.
"Well. Chrona ….I was fired today." Preferring to get this over with quickly, he dropped the word bomb directly in Chrona's lap, not looking her in the eye when he spoke.
"Dear? Chrona, I know. I was stupid, but I will get another job, I promise. It's just that they are letting a lot of people go because of budget cuts for the company. But like I said, I shall find something else, I swear! I am so so sorry Chrona"
"Chrona, sweetheart? Please, baby. Say something?" Kid asked her quietly.
Finally, he felt the anger rising in him when Chrona still had yet to answer him. Kid grabbed the girl's chin, tilting it upwards until he could look him into his pale, blue eyes. But his anger suddenly vanished when he saw that there were tears threatening to roll down his dearest's face.
"Pl-Please Kid. Please stop…stop calling me that. Stop calling me 'baby'!" The shy girl sobbed as she pulled away from her lover. Wrapping her arms around her stomach, the tears cascaded down her cheeks, plopping into the lap of her navy blue dress. "Kid, Kid, I'm so sorry. It's not your fault. It's absolutely not your fault! It's your stu-stupid company's fault! And now, you're gonna,…gonna hate me for this. I'm so sor-sorry Kid. I swear, if you hate me, then I can, I can get rid of it! I'll go out and get rid of it if I have to. I want it of course, of course I do, but my own happiness doesn't matter. Not if it, if it…if it takes you away from me!" Kid just sat next to her, stunned as Chrona ranted. The man had never heard the girl speak like this before, so forcefully. She kept wiping the tears away from her face, but seconds later, there they were again.
"Chrona dear, what are you speaking about? Chrona, please. Just tell me what's the matter." Kid pulled her into his arms, whispering sweet nothings into the girl's ear until she had calmed enough to speak to him without shouting.
'Kid, I'm…I'm pregnant. We're gonna have a baby Kid. We're gonna have a baby when we're barely managing and you were go fired! That's it. I'll go out first thing tomorrow to schedule an appointment for an abortion. Don't worry sweetheart. I'll take care of it. You won't have to worry about it anymore. Just forget about everything I just said." Chrona began to squirm in Kid's arms, frantically pulling at her body to get out.
"What? No, Chrona. Chrona ….Chrona! Listen to me!" Kid yelled, but Chrona would not stay still. She flailed her arms around wildly until she was free. Once she was, the pregnant girl sprinted towards their room. Kid, shocked that the smaller one was able to get away from him so easily in her fragile state, jumped off of the couch and ran after his lover. He was able to catch up to her, but he was worried that he wouldn't be able to. Even being pregnant didn't stop Chrona from being faster than him.
Grabbing her tiny wrist, Kid yanked the girl towards him, wrapping his arms around the barely showing waist. How had he not noticed that she was pregnant? Looking at her now, there definitely was a glow to her skin, and her stomach had the very slightest of a bulge poking out. Chrona looked…..beautiful.
"Love, how could you think that I would want you to get rid of this,…this miracle that we made? Yes, I lost my job, but I will be out there every day, looking for a new one, until I can provide the kind of life that you and the baby deserve."
"I love you Chrona. You know that. I want to keep the baby, OUR baby. Of course I wouldn't let you get rid of it! Silly girl, I have always wanted a family with you. We shall just have to figure out some new plans, hm? I will start looking for a decent salary job tomorrow, and then we can go shopping. Maternity clothes, nursery items, and such."
"Chrona, dearest one. Come on. Let's go to bed, alright?" Kid whispered into the girl's ear. He was suddenly behind her, her back meeting his chest. Ignoring her squeak of protest, he lifted her into his arms, bridal style, and carried her into their bedroom. Kid closed the door behind them with his foot, he set Chrona down on the bed.
After all, he couldn't resist something so beautiful.
A/N: Yay! Finished! I know, it's already Christmas, but Christmas day in this story will not be until later.
I really hope you guys liked it.
And yes, I am convinced that Chrona is a girl, even though I know that the author of 'Soul Eater' drew Chrona genderless. But girl!Chrona/Kid is so cute, I just can't help myself!
Anyways, I hope you all have/had a very Merry Christmas Xoxo
