So yes, another day of summer vacation.

"And a beautiful day it looks like." I said to myself. That was before I opened the blinds.

"STUPID RAIN!" I yelled really loudly.

"Daisuke, what are you yelling about now?" Jun asked me, poking her head inside the door. Honestly, doesn't anybody know the meaning of the word privacy anymore?

"Never mind, go away." I scolded, walking over to the chest of drawers in my room.

"Well, just to let you know, mom and dad are gone and I'm taking off too. You're on your own for today kid." She told me, leaning against the door frame.

"All right fine, whatever. I'll probably go hang out with Tai, Matt, and TK." I shrugged and pulled out a clean pair of boxers and jeans. I took off my shirt, and then turned to glare at Jun when I realized she was still standing there.

"Do you mind?" I growled, shoving her out of my room. She stuck her tongue out at me and I slammed the door.

"Gosh, stupid people." I muttered and slipped on a black T-shirt that said ROLE MODEL in bold white letters along with my blue cargo jeans. I walked into the bathroom, brushed my teeth and all the fun stuff and then bounced out into the living room. Just as I suspected, Jun had already taken off to...........somewhere.

Well, now what?" I asked myself. And as a response, the phone rang.


"Hey Dais." TK's voice said from the other end.

"Oh, hi Teeks." I said slowly, allowing myself to slide into my sofa. Of course, TK seems to have that affect on me. Sending me off into my own little la-la land. And yet, I don't know why.

"Yo, you still there?" his voice knocked me out of my dream world.

"Huh?" Was my stupid reply. He laughed at that, a sound I always love to hear. His laughter sends a warm feeling through me.

"I said, what are you doing today?" he repeated. Or I'm assuming he repeated, seeing as how I totally missed it the first time.

"Nothing really. Everybody took off for the day, so I'm just here by myself. All alone." I sniffed, pretending to be hurt.

"Aw, poor Dai-chan." TK mocked back before breaking off into laughter again.

"Hey c'mon, don't laugh at me. I'm serious!" I said, laughing out loud myself.

"How so, when you're laughing as well?" TK challenged me.

"Oh shut up."

"Anyway, you wanna come over today? Then we can wait for Matt and Tai to call and tell us what they're doing so we can crash their party."

"Sounds good to me." I said, jumping off of my couch.

"Cool. See ya in a few."

"Right, see ya."

"Oh and Dais?"


"Be aware that it's raining outside."

"I know that, what do you take me for, an idiot?"

"Well, actually......"

"I am not an idiot!" I hung up on him and ran out the door.


I knocked on TK's door and waited for him to open up. He opened the door and leaned against the frame, smirking all the while.

"Ok, I am an idiot." I said, trying to prevent my teeth from chattering. He shook his head and grabbed me by the arm, dragging me into his nice and warm apartment. I walked into his bathroom and starting squeezing the water out of my hair into the sink.

"So what happened to you?" He asked, handing me a towel.

"I was kind of in a rush this morning after you called and I ran out without a coat." I said sheepishly as I rubbed my arms dry. He rolled his eyes and walked away, returning with a pair of dry clothes.

"Put these on and throw your clothes in the dryer. That way you don't get sick." TK said to me, throwing the clothes into my arms and walking out of the bathroom, closing the door behind him. I looked down at the material in my hand and a wry smile crossed my face.

"Well, if I plan on getting into his pants, this is one way to start." I chuckled and slipped into the pipe-legged jeans and pulled the dark blue hooded sweatshirt over my head. I shut off the light and rejoined him on the couch.

"What'd you do with my clothes?" I asked him, grabbing the remote from between his fingers.

"I threw them in the dryer for you." Was his reply, snatching the remote back.

"Oh, thanks." I said absent-mindedly, once again taking the remote from his possession.

"No problem." He wrenched it away.

"Stop that!" I yelled, grabbing for the remote once more.

"Why? It's my remote!" TK yelled back, prying it from my fingers. I growled and tackled him, wrestling him to the ground.

"Dais, get off of me!" he yelped, thrashing around under me to escape. I merely smirked and sat on his chest, looking down into his ocean-blue eyes.

"Oh come off it, Takeru." I said, drawling out each syllable in his name. He rolled his eyes at this and glared at me.

"Do you HONESTLY believe that I will let you off the hook that easily?" I asked him, tracing my finger along his jaw line. He didn't respond right away as he sat there, watching my every move. My face brought on a small smile, enjoying everything that I was doing to make him squirm. And it's not that I actually minded being on top of this angel. Hmm...........he needs a new description. Everyone calls TK an angel. But I can't really blame them. He looks like a fallen angel, with his perfect golden blonde, and now slightly messy, hair and bright, sparkly eyes. And yet, there's still something else there. Something hidden behind that perfect exterior..............

"Daisuke, please get off of me?" a small voice brought me out of my thoughts. I looked down and smiled at him.

"No. Way." I said with an evil smile. Then I reached down slowly.......and started tickling his sides mercilessly. He tried not to laugh at first, wiggling away from me. But he failed and burst into peals of laughter.

"Dai, stop it!" he squealed, still trying to wriggle out of my grip.

"You can't escape the almighty Daisuke, master of tickle tortures!" I said, not allowing any mercy. (A/n: Yes, I have actually said something along those lines. So sue me, I'm insane!)

"Oh really? Is that so....." he trailed off, laughter slowly dying.

"Yes?" I squeaked uncertainly. He shook his head and rolled over, pinning me to the ground and starting attacking my stomach. I started laughing so hard I couldn't even breathe.

"See? Not so fun when the tables are turned, now is it?" he asked me with a wide grin. I shook my head between my laughter and pushed him off of me. He abruptly stopped and got off of me, leaving me there on the floor. His eyes darted around the room and he got to his feet.

"I.......better go and check on your clothes." He said slowly and ran towards the laundry room. I sat on the floor blinking at his retreating figure, trying to get all of my breath back.

"That was............rather interesting." I said to myself. The phone then decided to ring.

"Dais, can you pick that up please?" I heard TK yell from wherever he actually went. I picked myself up off of the floor and turned on the cordless phone.


"Hey Dais, where's my brother?" Matt's voice came through the other end.

"Right here, hang on." I replied. I put the phone down and wandered towards the back of the house where TK was staring at the dryer.

"I don't think it's going to go anywhere." I said to him, causing him to jump and yelp.

"What do you want?" he asked me, still slightly startled.

"Your brother's on the phone." I said, turning around and walking away. TK followed me and picked up the phone. "Hey Matt." TK said into the phone.

"With what?" he asked, sitting down next to me.

"Is he ok?" his eyebrows knitted together with worry.

"Well, then in that case. Wait, what do you mean you have no clue what you're suppose to do?" he suddenly said. I stared at him, trying to put together all of the conversation, but I got lost.

"Well, does he have a fever?" Sounds like somebody's sick.

"Put a cold wet compress on his forehead. Keep him warm. When he wakes up, try to get him to eat something, and then take some aspirin, because if it is the flu, he's bound to have a headache. Otherwise, just let him sleep and keep him comfortable." TK finished his list, a small smile playing on his lips.

"No, of course not onnichan." He denied, still hiding his laughter.

"Don't call me that. And you're welcome." He replied and hung up. He looked at me and laughed like he had wanted to on the phone.

"Dare I even ask?" I asked him, raising an eyebrow slightly.

"Tai's sick today."

"Aw, bummer. That means those two aren't going out today." I sighed, leaning back into the sofa.

"Yea, but what could we have done anyway? It's all rainy and wet and blah outside." TK replied.

"Yea........what'd he call you?" I asked him suddenly. TK looked at me strangely and had a faint blush spreading across his cheeks.

"Nothing." He said, avoiding my gaze.


"It's nothing embarrassing, it's just so lame." He clarified.

"Such as?" I pressed on, fully interested by now. Now why I was interested, I had no clue. Everything about TK fascinated me. All right, let's just bite the bullet and get this over with. I'm not going to pull a Tai, to say the least. I won't deny the fact that I'm in love with TK. In fact, I won't even deny the fact that I'm gay. So there, Tai. In your face!

"Um, are you ok?" TK asked me. I wasn't even aware that a triumphant smile had spread across my face.

"Oh yea. Don't mind me." I laughed nervously, giving him a sheepish grin.

"You are so weird." He laughed as well and got up, walking into the kitchen.

"Thanks! I try." I said innocently, turning my attention back to the TV. I heard some clattering in the kitchen and some thunder outside. I turned on the news and waited for the storm watch report.

"Hey Dais, you want some ramen?" TK asked. Well, that confirms my suspicions of food.

"What flavor?" I asked back, eyes glued to the screen.

"Just ordinary chicken."

"Sure, whatever." The TV beeped and the storm watch came on.

"Reports say that this storm will be rough. Expect at least 40 mile per hour winds and 5 inches of rain. Advisory advises that all stay inside today." I stared blankly at the screen, not blinking or anything.

"That's it. They're supposed to tell you everything that's going to happen and that's all they say?? NO DUH STAY INSIDE!" I yelled at the box.

"You sure all the lights are on in your upper story?" TK asked me as he walked in behind me, checking out what all my yelling was for probably.

"Nah, one of the light bulbs must have burned out. But that's beside the point! They just said a bunch of useless crap that we already knew about the storm. Nothing useful!" I ranted and raved about what the TV just said. TK walked over to the front window and pulled back the curtains.

"Damn it's dark out there." He said, drawing back for me to see out. The sky was all cloudy and dark out, with only the occasional flash of lighting streaking across the horizon.

"Wow.......they weren't kidding when they said not to go out there." I said quietly. TK nodded and backed away from the window. Suddenly the TV started making strange noises. It kept cutting out the picture, making everything choppy until it finally shut out all together. Soon followed by all of the other lights. I blinked and jumped, now surrounded in the pitch black.

"Um, TK? What just happened?" I asked him. I couldn't see where he was, but I could only assume that he was in the corner, since that's where the noise was coming from.

"Power failure." He replied shortly, walking closer to me. I could faintly make out an outline of his frame. He stopped and sat down.

"Hey TK?"


"Mind getting off of me?" I asked him. He had sat on me, instead of the couch.

"Oh yea." I heard him shift off of my lap and next to me on the couch. Thankfully the lights were out, otherwise he might have seen the faint blush across my cheeks.

"So now what? All the lights are out and we have no clue when they'll come back on." TK said, sighing in defeat.

"No candles?" I asked him, racking my brain for ideas.

"Nope. Mom doesn't trust me with them since I lit my carpet in my room on fire." He said amusedly. I nodded and looked around. I decided I had to get up and try to find something to use. He got up as well and followed me into the kitchen.

"No flashlight?" I asked him, poking around inside the drawers.

"Get out of there. And yea, but I can't remember where it is." He said, slapping my hand away.

"Ow. Ok, I get it. Some help you are." I growled at him. He stuck out his tongue and smiled. I leaned over towards him and opened another cabinet.

"This is getting us nowhere." I said, trailing off to the laundry room, TK still hot on my trail. I heard him opening and closing drawers and cupboards. I turned and I saw his back. It was then that the perfect plan formulated in my head. Smiling slying to myself, I quietly walked over to him. He was unaware that I was next to him as he continued searching through a drawer. Smirking, I leaned over, searching in the cupboard above his head. And as I leaned down to look into the bottom shelve of the cupboard, I "accidentally" placed my lips on his. I saw his blue eyes widen in surprise, but he didn't back off or try to fight me. Instead he just gapped at me in awe. I leaned back and started searching again, pretending that none of that had ever happened. He didn't say anything either as he backed away, flickering on a flashlight.

"There, that's better." He said, his voice slightly cracking. He quickly turned around and walked away, back out into the living room I assume. I followed him closely and we both sat on the couch, not moving a single inch. The silence was killing me, watching the lighting patterns dance outside.

"Why are you so quiet all of a sudden?" I asked him, turning to look at him. I heard him shift and lean against the arm of the couch and I pointed the flashlight at him.

"AH! BLINDED!" he yelped, turning the light away and squeezing his eyes shut.

"Sorry." I grinned and placed it between both of us, just so that enough light shone on both of our faces.

"But you never answered my question. What's with you?" I asked him. HE shook his head and looked away.

"I don't know if you know this, Dai, but......."

"But......" I repeated after him.

"You kissed me." He blurted out quickly.

"And?" I asked him. He looked up at me, blinking in surprise.

"You knew?"

"I did it on purpose." I said, folding my hands behind my head and closing my eyes. I smiled casually, but inside I was cheering like I was at a football game. I mean, it couldn't be any simpler then this. TK would realize what my feelings were, he would proclaim his own feelings and then we would be happy and lovers like Matt and Tai.

"Why?" he asked me. He was falling into my trap just nicely.

"Because. I happen to like you as more then a friend." I said confidently. This is the part where he tells me he loves me too. Just wait for it...........

"You queer...." TK breathed out softly. My eyes jerked open and I sat straight up.

"Excuse me?" I looked at him, only to find him shaking his head at me.

"Daisuke, what made you think that I would be ok with you kissing me?" he asked me. I gapped at him, blinking to make sure I was hearing him right.

"But I, I mean, you-"I stumbled upon my words.

"Are perfectly straight." He interrupted me.

"But I mean, all those times I hit on you, you flirted right back." I protested, watching my plans disintegrate in front of me.

"Oh flirted back my ass! I did not!" he argued back.

"Did so." I replied, not as confidently.

"Daisuke. I'm not gay. I'm in love with Kari. You know that as much as everyone else does." He said. I tried to speak but found I couldn't. My voice seemed to have ran away and hid itself and my eyes filled with tears.

"But I-"I whispered.

"Sorry Daisuke." He said. The final blow. I blinked and the tears started running down my face. Luckily the light was more turned towards him so he couldn't see me. What happened to my perfect plan? Gone. Damn.

"Hey, are you ok?" he asked me.

"You tell me." I whispered again. He turned the light towards me and caught sight of my face. His eyes softened and he wrapped his arms around my waist, allowing me to cry into his chest.

"Dais, I'm so sorry." He said gently. I nodded and sighed, looking up at him again.

"See, a straight guy wouldn't be doing this." I said to him. He froze in his spot, whether it was in horror or in realization.

"But still......" he trailed off.

"You know as well as I do that you're not straight. Admit it." I poked him in the chest. His shoulders slumped and he sighed.

"Ooh boy, Kari's not gonna be happy with this one." He said defeatedly. I smiled and snuggled closer into his chest.

"Oh well, who cares?" I said, regaining my confidence. I sat up a little ways and kissed him again. This time he responded slowly but surely. I ran my tongue over his teeth, trying to wriggle my way into his mouth. He obliged and let me explore. The taste of TK. Wonderful.........

"Well, Kari wouldn't be able to kiss that good......" he said once we had parted for air.

"You've kissed her??" My eyes bulged out of their sockets.

"No, I'm just saying." He shrugged. Suddenly the lights flickered again and everything lit up. I looked up at the ceiling light and smiled.

"Think it's a sign?"

"Of what?" he asked me, getting up to turn off the stove he had left on when the power went out.

"That our love is right?"

"Yea. Seems that way." He said with a smile, while he finished making the ramen. I smiled back and crossed my arms behind my head again.

"And the demon scores the angel once again." I said quietly to myself, watching the storm die outside slowly as our love just began.
