Okay I've decided what to do for the ending! I think you'll all like it . . . maybe . . . ^^-

Yeah I know I could have made this WAY longer but . . . I dunno . . . I'm really impatient. X.X

I don't own Hiei or his mass load of problems.

~*~*~*~*~*

It was Monday morning, 2 days since Yusuke and Kuwabara had made the bet and 1 day since Hiei had disappeared.

School was in because the teachers strike hadn't even lasted one school day, and Kurama, Yusuke, and Kuwabara were all walking to school together.

Koenma had thought it would be much easier if they were all in the same school so he could reach them for cases faster. Yusuke and Kuwabara applied for Kurama's school but were way below standards so Kurama transferred to (I know what it's called but I haven't a clue how to spell it) Yusuke and Kuwabara's school.

Aside from the change of color in uniforms Kurama adjusted well to his new surroundings, of course there was another bunch to add to the 'already humongo pile of people who fall in love with you'.

"So that's why you don't eat the toothpaste Kuwabara" Kurama explained in a down, tired voice

"Say Kurama, is something wrong?" Yusuke asked starring at Kurama's sort of red eyes

Kurama didn't hear him over the thoughts in his mind replaying the day before. How could he have been so stupid!?

Kurama thought about nothing but Hiei for the past 24 hours and it kept him form sleeping most of the night. And of course he cried a lot during those many hours he laid in bed awake.

"Yusuke" Kurama started looking up at him

"Yeah Kurama" Yusuke said looking kind of worried, along with Kuwabara

"That bet . . ." Kurama continued but was then interrupted

"OH YEAH! So how are you doing? Did he fall in love with you? Don't tell me he did there's just no way!" Kuwabara asked quickly

"It depends . . . what exactly counts?" Kurama asked still sounding sleepy and sad

"Well . . . I don't know. Why, what did he say? Tell and we'll decide" Yusuke said patting Kurama on the back excitedly

"Don't even think it! I'm going to win for sure!" Kuwabara yelled at Yusuke giving him a nudge

"NO WAY! I'm going to win!" Yusuke yelled back hitting Kuwabara

"It doesn't matter . . . I don't think anyone could ever come out the winner in this!" Kurama said looking at the two with his eyes starting to water a bit as he stopped walking

Yusuke and Kuwabara stopped as well and then gave each other confused looks.

"What happened buddy?" Kuwabara asked sounding worried

"Neither one of you won." Kurama started, confused looks still in habiting the faces and Yusuke and Kuwabara "I broke the rules but it doesn't matter . . . the bet was never really valid." Kurama said starting to walk a little faster to get ahead of his two friends so they couldn't see the tears starting to role down his face.

"What . . . what rules did you break?" Yusuke asked and couldn't help but let out a little laugh

Kurama turned around and the faces of Yusuke and Kuwabara went from a little worried to down right sad as they saw their good friend crying uncontrollably as he said to them "All of them"

Yusuke and Kuwabara looked at each other for a second a little stunned but then turned to Kurama.

"Hey Kurama . . . lets cut school today . . . you need to talk about and explain this" Yusuke said as he took Kurama's arm and they all went off the sidewalk and into the park, the same one he had been in with Hiei.

"Kurama, what exactly happened?" Kuwabara asked sitting Kurama down under a tall tree

"At first I . . . I just- . . . I did what I was supposed to do. I tried to get Hiei to fall for me . . . anyway, I somehow got him to spend the night and-"

"THAT'S WHEN YOU BROKE THE FIRST RULE!?" Kuwabara shouted in disgust/surprise

"NO! He slept in my desk chair and I in my bed." Kurama explained "I woke up the next morning and found that Hiei was on the other side of my bed-"

"AND THAT'S WHEN YOU BROKE THE FIRST RULE!!?" Yusuke yelled in question

"NO DAMN IT WON'T YOU LET ME TELL THE STORY!" Kurama yelled in shock of himself

"S-sorry . . ." Yusuke and Kuwabara answered

"He was sitting on the other side of my bed and told me that my mother had told him to go wake me up . . . anyway to make a long story short . . . I- . . . I started to feel different about him. I realized . . . that I really and truly did- . . . love him. I told him that I did . . . so I broke the second rule then I broke the third. And then he- he put his arms around me and told me that he had waited too long to show me how he felt . . . meaning that . . . he had had feelings for me for a while. And then . . . well-" Kurama tried to finish but then look to Yusuke and Kuwabara letting them know what happened

"OHH! So THAT'S when you broke the first rule . . ." Kuwabara said slowly

"Right" Kurama told them as all three of them started to blush "But then, afterwards, I made a huge mistake . . . I said something about this stupid bet! And- . . . and he left me. I haven't seen him since Saturday." Kurama said to them started to cry again

Yusuke and Kuwabara looked at each other sadly and then to Kurama.

"We're sorry . . . it's all our fault." Yusuke said to him with a sorry expression

"No . . . it's mine. I love him . . . and I'm afraid that he might never come back . . ." Kurama said quietly trying hard but failing to hold back all the tears

Kuwabara and Yusuke didn't know what to do. All they could think of was to move their glances away from Kurama so they wouldn't have to see him, who'd they always looked up to for strength, crying in such pain.

"H-hey . . ." Yusuke said Kuwabara in a whisper "Look at that deformed crow" Yusuke said pointing up in the tree that Kurama sat under

"HOLY CRAP!" Kuwabara yelled very loudly which caused a black being to fall out of the tree and into Kurama's lap

Kurama starred at it for a moment and wiped the tears from his eyes. He then got a little help as the little demon dressed in black reached up and wiped one away.

"Hiei" Kurama whispered as he wrapped his arms around the little demon and hugged him gently

"You sure do know how to embarrass a guy . . ." Hiei said harshly as Kurama then looked up and saw Kuwabara and Yusuke just starring at them with demented, brain dead looks on their faces

"You think a hug is embarrassing" Kurama said in joy as he held Hiei closer to him and kissed him passionately

Yusuke and Kuwabara's blank looks soon turned to embarrassed ones as they just starred at the two, who were kissing each other like crazy.

When the two finally stopped for a moment to catch their breath Hiei took Kurama's waist and moved on top of him and said to him in that tone that Kurama had grown to love "I love you too Kurama" Kurama started to blush and so did Hiei as he turned to look at the amazed faces of Kuwabara and Yusuke "Now pay up!" Hiei shouted at the two as he stood up off of Kurama and gave them both death glares

Kurama lied on the ground and watched as Hiei prepared to kill the two for watching him and Hiei making out in the forest.

"Hiei . . ." Kurama sighed as he watched his two friends, and his love, fighting each other in embarrassment driven rage.
