Ryamon: that's a first.


Ryamon: hee hee

GRR. Anyway, here it is people, the new sequel. Enjoy!

Matt's POV

********************************************************************** For the first time in about 7 years, my life is so perfect. I'm finally dating the guy I've loved for so long, the band's popularity is growing, and now it's time for summer vacation. More time for me to spend with Tai. Speaking of which, he was suppose to meet me at my locker 10 minutes ago so we could go and do something.

"Where the devil is that boy?" I muttered to myself. Suddenly I jumped as a pair of arms snaked around my waist.

"Tai! Don't do that!" I yelped as I spun around to face my now laughing boyfriend. Taichi Kamiya, my soulmate and the best friend I could ever have. Sure I love him and all, but sometimes........he's a little TOO much to handle.

"Hi, Yama." He chirped and grinned widely.

"You are so annoying you know that?" I informed him as we started walking down the hallway.

"Well, yea. Can you really imagine me any other way?" he replied.

"Guess not." We walked out of the school and headed down the street. He had his hands behind his head and I had mine in my pockets. Except......I don't think I grew a third hand.

"TAI!" I yelled as he lifted his hand out of my pocket.

"Sorry. I just thought your hand could use some company." He said with a guilty grin. I shook my head and grabbed onto his free hand.

"Better, Mr. Smartass?" I said with a smirk. He grinned and gripped my hand tighter. We walked along in silence, taking in all of the scenery of people starting their break.

"So where are we going to go?" I asked him as he continued to lead me around.

"The park." was the simple response I got.

"We always go to the park though." I protested as we entered the park. He just shrugged and continued to walk along. He led me to our normal spot and sat on a large rock that overlooked the pond filled with ducks. The area around us was nice, and sort of romantic in a way. The landscaping was amazing, with all the trees and plants surrounding a small fishpond. I sat down on another rock and faced Tai.

"Any real reason why we're here, Tai?" I asked him. He took his gaze off of the pond and looked at me.

"Matt, I need to tell you something."

"Like what?" I asked him as I moved over to his rock.

"I got accepted into the modeling program I told you about." He started out.

"That's great. Glad you get to do something you like." I replied.

"Yea, I guess." He said quietly.

"What's wrong? You don't seem excited about it." I asked in concern.

"Oh, I'm excited, but I have some bad news." I raised my eyebrow.

"What kind of bad news?" I asked him slowly.

"The program is during the summer." He replied as he stared out into the pond. It's more like a lake, but that's beside the point.

"Hey, that's ok. We can still see each other during the breaks you get. I mean, you'll be here still, so it's not hard." I concluded. He looked back up at me and shook his head sadly.

"Afraid not, Matt."

"What do you mean, 'Afraid not'?" I asked him.

"Oh, Matt. I have to go to New York to do the program thing." He blurted out suddenly.

"What? As in, America?" He nodded and sighed.

"Yea. For the whole summer." He replied as he sank off his rock and onto the grass.

"I'm so sorry, Matt." He said in almost a whisper. I got off my own rock and wrapped my arms around him.

"Don't be sorry for doing what you want to do." I replied.

"So, you're not mad at me?" he asked as he gave me his puppy look.

"How could I be mad? You're my best friend, boyfriend, and soulmate all in one. You just do what your heart desires." He smiled softly and hugged me back.

"Thanks for understanding, Yamato." He said and planted butterfly kisses on my neck. We sat in the silence of our own thoughts, looking out at the sunset.

"When are you leaving?" I asked him. His gaze shifted to the ground suddenly. I growled and lifted his head back up.

"Tomorrow. They want me there ASAP." He said sadly.

"I'm the last person to know, aren't I?" I asked as that thought occurred to me. He sighed again and nodded.

"Matt, I just didn't want to see you upset."

"And you didn't think I wouldn't be upset if you didn't tell me?"

"Which is why I told you now." I sighed and ran a hand through my blonde hair.

"What time does your flight leave?" I asked him as we stood up and left the park.

"About noon-ish. Everyone's coming to say their good-byes and such." He said off-handedly.

"I'll be there too, you know." I reminded him.

"You will?" I rolled my eyes and hit him in the back of his head.

"Of course I will, you idiot. You didn't actually think you could leave without saying goodbye to me, did you?" I smirked at him as we walked towards his apartment.

"Guess not." He returned a gentle smile. We reached his building and stopped walking.

"Well, I better go and finish packing. I'll see you tomorrow ok?" he said uncertainly.

"Yea. See ya." I replied and walked away. Tomorrow came too soon though.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The Next Day ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

There's only one word to describe my bed, and that'd be comfortable. I'm always reluctant to get out of bed in the mornings, especially on the first day of summer. But no matter how I felt, I opened my eyes anyway. I glanced over to my clock lazily and closed my eyes again. Suddenly I did a double take and was wide-awake.

"AW SHIT!" I said out loud as I scrambled out of my bed. I raced into the bathroom and then back to my room, looking for anything to wear.

"Damn alarm clock. Piece of shit." I cursed under my breath as I pulled on a pair of jeans. It was then I realized there was another word for my bed: seductive. I pulled my shirt on over my head and ran out to the front hall.

"Dad? Hey, Dad, you in here?" I called as I put on my trainers. I ran into the kitchen and found a note on the table.

'Yamato, I had to go into work today. Be back before midnight. Dad." I murmured to myself. Great, what a perfect time for Dad to have to work. I checked my watch and sighed. It was 11:30 and now I have to run to the airport. SHIT SHIT SHIT!

"Luck is SO not on my side today." I moaned as I took off running down the street. I kept running as fast as my legs could allow me and checked my watch.

"Damn I hate running." I complained. 11:45. I only have 15 minutes to get there. I looked up and sighed in relief. The airport was in view now.

"Just keep running, Matt." I told myself and ran harder into the airport.

"Crap, now where do I go?" I whined and stopped running for a bit.

"Flight 182 leaving for New York will be boarding at gate 17 in 10 minutes." A voice said over the intercom.

"Thank you." I said to no one in particular and turned around towards gate 17.

"You're welcome." The voice replied.

"HUH?" I looked at the little black box and shrugged. No time for that, must find Tai. I started running again in pursuit to beat the clock.

"Matt! Over here!" I heard Sora yell at me. I smiled as best as I could and ran to her.

"I am never going to do that again." I panted as I leaned against the wall.

"About time you showed up. We thought you forgot or something." She said to me.

"No, my damn clock didn't go off to wake me up. Where's Tai?" I asked her.

"Right behind you." A new voice said, causing me to jump.

"Hey, Matt." He grinned cheekily.

"I thought I told you not to do that." I replied. He shrugged.

"I thought you weren't going to make it. What's with the heavy breathing?"

"I had to run the whole way here from my house in about, 20 minutes." I replied.

"I feel so loved." He said dramatically.

"You should." I muttered under my breath. Sora smiled and turned to leave.

"I'll leave you two alone." She said over her shoulder and walked back towards the others. I mouthed a silent thank you and turned to Tai.

"You excited?" I asked him. He nodded.

"Of course I am. I mean, I'm going to be a model. I want to do this so much." He said halfheartedly.

"Then what's with the long-face?" He gave me a half-shrug and shook his head.

"It's just hard, you know? Knowing that by leaving for this, I'm leaving behind my family, my friends, you. I'm just going to miss you all so much." He said as his voice started to crack. I pulled him into a hug and held him tightly.

"I know, but don't worry about it. We'll see eachother in what, 3 months?" I said, trying to sound cheerful.

"Yea. But that's a long time." He said softly. I nodded and let him hang on to me. Then I remembered something.

"Hey, I got you something." I said as I reached into my pocket.

"You didn't have to." He said as I placed a box into his hand.

"You know, you're right. I didn't have to. But I wanted to." I replied. He smiled and opened the box. Inside the box held a ring with the crest of courage and friendship embedded into one on it, surrounded by Celtic patterns. I had placed it on a sterling silver chain myself though. His eyes filled with tears and he embraced me again.

"Thanks, Matt." He whispered into my ear.

"No problem. Just a reminder that we'll be together again one day." I explained to him as I pulled a similar ring out of my shirt, attached by a chain.

"Seems kind of girly, but I tried." I shrugged. He smiled and placed a kiss on my lips.

"No it's not. I love it." He replied.

"Flight 182 to New York now boarding for take-off." The intercom announced.

"That's my flight." Tai said as he picked up his backpack.

"I can't believe you're leaving for 3 months." I commented. The tears in his eyes soon started to fall.

"Neither can I. I'm going to miss you all so much." He repeated as he hugged me again.

"I'll miss you too." I replied and kissed him one last time.

"Flight 182 to New York now boarding for take-off." The intercom said again. I wanted to kill that damn thing.

"You better go." I said as I gently pried him off me. He nodded and started to walk away.

"I'll write you as soon as I have a permanent address. And I'll email you before then." He called as he started walking backwards.

"Ok. Have fun, Tai. See you in 3 months." I called back as tears pricked at my eyes.

"I will. Love you, Matt." He said as he reached the gate.

"Love you too, Tai." I replied.

"Bye." He said and waved. He said goodbye to everyone else and checked in at the gate. He looked at me one last time and blew me a kiss.

"Goodbye Taichi, my love." I whispered to him. I'm not sure if he heard me or not, because he grinned and waved, with tears still streaming down his face. He turned around and walked through the gate. And as soon as he was gone, I cried for the first time since my parents divorced 7 long years ago.

************************************************************************ Awww......poor Matt, deprived without his Tai for 3 whole months.

Matt: I can NOT believe you're doing this to me.

Tai: Like I don't count?

Ryamon: Of course not.

RYAMON BE NICE! Sorry everybody. Anyway, was this good? Bad? Weird?

Ryamon: All of the above?

Let me know guys. And just as a FYI to how this is probably going to work, I'll have one chapter in Yama's POV, then one in Tai's and so on. That's all for now.

Ryamon: Please review!
