How many of you were ready to kill someone when I didn't tell you what was behind the gate? Well the time has come my story followers, review and tell me what you think.
Behind The Gate
"Well that was a complete waste of time!" Soul said angrily when entering his apartment. They had chased after them for 10 blocks just to lose them. In Soul's boo 10 blocks was 10 blocks to many to run.
"It wasn't a complete waste of time! Did you not take notes on what happened?" Liz asked aggravated when Soul shook his head no. "Damn it! I brought you with me for two reasons Soul! One, to make sure you wouldn't ruin their date! Two, to show you how much Kid makes Maka happy, how happy she would be if you let her go... Soul I hate to admit it to you, but you know that you never loved her. You're pushing this brother sister relationship as something else! Why can't you let her go!" Liz asked pointing an accusing finger at Soul.
"I'm not pushing anything, damn it women. I like her, she likes me. Can't you see that? I am not giving her up to some prissy little Shinigami so he could have whatever he wants. Well he's not going to get her. She is the one thing I have against him! I will not lose that!"
"You're referring to your girlfriend as an object of prize? Something to shove in his face whenever you are there? I can't believe you, you're sick. Rot in the hell of jack ass boyfriends for all I care. I was just trying to save your friendship and partnership, but forget about it. Lose her forever." Liz said coldly slamming the door behind her. That's when Blair came out of her hiding spot.
"She's right Soul, you can't keep her. Don't forget our little secret either! if she finds out-"
"She won't." Soul said simply. "Because you'll never tell her and she'll never find out. I'm going to bed Blair." Soul said standing up to escape to his room. Blair sighed.
"I hope she'll forgive you." She said before walking to Maka's room. She'd wait for her there.
"What is this..." Maka asked in amusement and sheer wonder. She was starting to get dizzy from the amount of times she had been spinning around.
"It's my secret garden." Kid said amused by her face of shock. They stood in the center of his garden. Perfectly cut grass, forest full of fire flies. Ivy attached to the poles that held up the Japanese lanterns and Christmas lights that also scattered (symmetrically) around the garden. In the center was an old fountain that had roses and ivy growing up it. The base of the fountain went up to Kid's hip. The water inside was a pristine blue that allowed you to see everything in the water including the koy fish. The center of the fountain reached up about 12 feet and had a symmetrical cupid blowing a horn full of roses on top. Kid was proud of his work here and with the sun down the lights reflected off the fountain.(*1*) "What do you think?" He asked.
"Kid... oh my God! This is amazing. I bet Liz loves all the flowers and I bet Patty loves all of the animals." Maka said looking around at the wildlife from the forest then to Kid.
"I bet they would like that." Kid said closing the gate, which was also scattered with lights.
"What do you mean would like that?" Maka asked after taking a seat on the fountain. Her finer just grazing the top to create a small ripple on the surface. "Have they ever been here?" She asked looking up from the water to Kid. Kid sat down next to Maka by the fountain.
"My father proposed to my mother in this exact spot. My mother took me here to play when I was very young. My father had taught me how to be the best shinigami possible. When I was scarred I would run here, when I was happy I would run here. I have never told anyone about this place because it was so special to me... I trust you, that's why you're the only other person, other than my family, that has been here." Kid said looking at her.
"It's a beautiful place to feel safe. I can't believe you let me see this. Why me? I'm just normal Maka, I'm not special..." Maka said more to herself than Kid. She then got up towards to front clearing area.
"Like I said, I trust you. I can't really explain what made me want to take you here, but I felt like I should have. You seemed upset and this was always my peaceful place." He said getting up to stand next to her in the clearing. "Did you know this area was meant for dancing as well. My father had put a stereo system in here when I was 10." Kid said pressing a button on a tree as it opened to reveal a stereo system. He pressed play as the music began.
"This is amazing Kid, it really is. Did you bring that girl here?" Maka asked giggling slightly as a small blush spread across his face.
"No, not yet." Kid said walking back over to face Maka.
"That's terrible, I bet she would absolutely love this!" Maka said twirling around. Kid laughed slightly and stuck out his hand.
"Would you like to dance?" Maka blushed and began to stutter as Kid grabbed her hand.
"I- I can't dance." She finally squeaked out.
"It's fine, just let me lead. I don't care about how many times you step on my foot or mess up, as long as you're happy." Kid said twirling Maka around. She laughed a little.
"I am very happy Kid. Thank you." Maka said looking him in the eyes. She rested her head on his chest and closed her eyes. "You're going to make a girl really happy one day." She said. Kid smiled and held her closer.
Kid was flying back to Maka's apartment on his skateboard. She had fallen asleep a little after they had started dancing so Kid thought it would be a good time to leave. After closing up the garden, he picked Maka up and flew directly to her home. He opened the window, since the door was locked, and placed her down on her bed. He tucked her in and laughed at how she snuggled deeper into her blanket. He placed his hand on her cheek and was surprised when she snuggled into it as well. He smiled slightly as he moved his hand to her forehead. He bent down and gave it a tiny kiss. He pulled away and put his hand back to her face.
"I see." Kid heard a small purr come from the darkness. He turned around to see Blair lying on Maka's desk. She looked Kid up and down before following his hand to Maka's face. "I see why you were avoiding her now. She told me she thought she had lost your friendship. She valued that so much, but now I see that you avoided her to stop yourself from hurting. Now you will fight back and claim your rightful prize?" Blair asked.
"She's not a prize. She's a girl that has her own beautiful mind to choose who and what she wants. I am behind her in every step she takes, even if it's against me... I just want her to be happy." He sighed again. He bent down and kissed her head again. He placed a key on her desk and before he was able to leave. He saw Maka's face of confusion as she reached for his head which was removed from her face. He smiled slightly as he put it back there. She purred slightly at the touch.
"To think you'd be the one to get her to purr." Blair said. Maka reached up and touched Kid's hand. Blair slipped inbetween the two. "I suggest you go before she wakes up, or before Soul wakes up." Kid nodded.
"See you tomorrow." He mumbled under his breathe to the sleeping Maka.
"Don't worry." He heard Blair say when he was midway out the window. "Your time will come." Kid then jumped fully out the window and to his mansion. He ignored the questions Liz was throwing at him. Telling him how she had heard everything, how she knew everything that happened, asking where they went, he ignored it all and went strait to his room. He rolled over to the center of the bed Blair's words ringing in his head.
Maka groaned as she felt the sun's rays reach her face. Although she did not have school today she still shot out of bed. A smile crept on her face when she remembered the garden. She then realized her surrounding's and close. "How did I get here?" She asked herself.
"Kid dropped you off last night, was he really that boring that you fell asleep?" Blair asked as Maka blushed slightly.
"No, it was just too perfect that I felt safe and warm and... why am I telling you?" Maka asked before she said too much.
"I'm sorry I'm a curious kitty. I just wanted to know what the key was for?" She asked stepping on the key that was on her desk. Maka almost launched herself full force at the desk taking the key from under Blair. She examined the rusty edges and the shinigami skull as the end. She squealed with delight.
"What did he give you his house key or something?" Blair asked quieting the girl down. (*2*)
Maka shook her head no. "This is not the key to his house, this is the key to somewhere we only know..." Maka laughed again as she recalled that being the name of the song they had danced to. Blair raised a feline eyebrow.
"Whatever you say." She said walking out of the room. Blair sighed with relief. At least when it was time for the secret to come out Maka would have someone to got to.
Maka twirled around her room with the key close to her chest. She then quickly hide the key in one of her desk drawers. She then went to picking out clothes and walking to the bathroom just to be attacked by Soul. "What are you doing?" She screamed when he lifted her up in the air.
"Can't I be worried for my girlfriend? You were out pretty late last night. You're also in the same clothes you were in yesterday. And is that... a kiss on your forehead(*3*)?" He asked accusingly.
"Maka... CHOP!" She screamed grabbing a random book and hitting him over the head with it. "I was delivered here by Kid, who I did not kiss in any way. I feel asleep on the ride back so instead of him changing me into my pajamas he just tucked me in. God, you can be annoying." She said stepping into the bathroom. "I don't get that mad when you're out with Blackstar 'till 1 in the morning." She said quickly before closing the door and taking a long shower. When she left, fully dressed in her usual attire, she was glad to see Soul was gone. She sighed with relief as she walked into her room. She began to make her bed when something clattered to the floor.
"What's this?" Maka asked as she picked up Kid's skull ring from the floor. She looked at it, then around the room. She took off her glove then put it on, admiring the design of it. "He must have left it here." She was about to take it off when she stopped herself. It felt so nice on her finger and it fit her hand perfectly. Looking one last time around her room she put her hand down. "I guess I give it back to him on Monday, why rush it?" She said simply admiring the ring once again.
1) This magical garden scenery I got from a dream, a freakish dream where I had to protect it from being destroyed... REMEMBER THE FOUNTAIN IT IS IMPORTANT!
2) Okay I literally thought up the somewhere only we know up without thinking of the song then I realized what I was writing and decided to make it their theme song!
3) Have any of you seen the people Peter Pan? Well if not, there is this scene where Wendy's mother is like 'I see a kiss on your lower lip' thing and I thought that would be funny if Soul said that... sorry if you don't know what I mean...
