Disclaimer - I don't own anything.

A/N: This is my first Taito, and my first Digimon fic for a very long time. I have no idea how good I'm going to be at this, but I figured I'd get up the guts and write something. So please review, it would be much appreciated.

Crossing Paths - Prologue

Taichi Yagami never talked to me ever the entire time we went to school together. Never looked in my direction once. It never bothered me, he went his way and I went mine. Our paths never crossed, ever. I couldn't ever tell if it was because we never let the opportunity arise or what. It just never happened. I never thought about it either. Never gave it a thought that we were connected somehow.

Why didn't anyone ever ask? Not like I would have remember, but no one ever even mentioned it. I don't know if he knew and chose to ignore it; I don't know if he knew as much as I did--which was absolutely nothing. I didn't think I was dense enough not to realize that Takeru was dating his younger sister, Hikari. Why am I always the last person to find things out?

To this day I still have no idea why what happened, happened. I didn't go to school that day as a senior to have everything crumble around me. If I got to choose what happened that day, I would have just stayed home sick. Honestly. What happened shouldn't have. I'm just back where I started again. Except I'm not in High School anymore, I'm in college.

The only other thing different is, Taichi Yagami isn't here either. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it's not great either. If it makes any sense, I still miss seeing him in the hallways. He was just always, there. If I miss one thing from High School it's him, and I never had anything to do with him. I maybe even resented him to a certain extent. Maybe I'd feel different if the outcome wouldn't have happened the way it did.

Geez, I can't seem to make up my mind can I? I don't want it to be different, but yet I do. Does that even make sense? Maybe Takeru is right, I need to get help. Maybe I'll look into that, maybe.

Listen to me, talking about shit that no one even knows about. Maybe I should tell everyone what happened before I start to reminisce, huh? Well, let's see...


Aero-Grrl: Well, that's it for right now I guess. Just to let everyone know, it's going to be in Yama's POV...At least, I'd like it to be. Anyway, reviews are always nice and make me write quicker. Crossing Paths is a working title, so it could be changed in the future too. -Ciao
