Title: Love will Prevail
Chapter Three: My Immortal

-:-
I'm so tired of being here
Suppressed by all my childish fear
-:-

The next morning, Serena walked to school early because she couldn't sleep. Her dreams were full of Darien. She remembered everything that happened last night, but she will never forget the emotions in his eyes. At first, it showed love, sadness, and betrayal, but seconds later, it showed nothing. They were just emotionless pools of ocean blue, and it scared her. When she entered her classroom five minutes early, she shocked Ms. Haruna so much that she fainted in the classroom. Serena just looked at her sadly, walked to her seat and slowly sat down.

-:-
And if you have to leave
I wish that you would just leave
-:-

After Ms. Haruna woke up and recovered from the shock of seeing Serena early, she started the class. She wrote a question on the board: 45x - (AN: dat underlined dash is supposed 2 b my bootlegged equalsign...)x+35+9

"Can anyone solve this problem?" Melvin's hand went up. She looked past them and looked at Serena. She had her head on her hand and she seemed to be staring off into space. "Miss Tsukino," Serena looked at her. "Can you please solve the problem?" Serena walked up to the board and stared at it.

-:-
Because your presence still lingers here
And it won't leave me alone
-:-

Ms Haruna smirked; thinking that Serena didn't know how to solve the problem. She got the shock of her life when Serena solved the problem with ease.

(AN: sorry, da quick edit thingamabobber wont let me add a equal sign, n i just dont feel lyke doing my bootlegged one all over again... no equal solving 2daii... ) : ... )

Serena put down the chalk and walked to her seat. Everyone stared, amazed at her. She didn't care. She didn't solve it in her head by herself. She remembered that question from when Darien started helping her with homework. When she saw that question, she almost cried. It reminded her of Darien. Everything reminded her of him. She just can't get him out of her head. Ms. Haruna and everyone else left her alone the whole period.

-:-
These wounds won't seem to heal
This pain is just too real
There's just too much that time cannot erase
-:-

Serena was walking home with Molly shooting out questions. "Serena, what happened? First, you walk in early for class and nearly gave Ms. Haruna a heart attack, you solved that question all by yourself, which not even me expected, then you were quiet the whole class! Did anything bad happen to you?" Asked Molly.

"No, nothing happened. Why, does something have to happen for me to actually answer a question correctly?"

"No, it's just that afterwards, you didn't even act like your bubbly self. You were just quiet and sad. It was affecting everyone. Did anything happen between you and Darien?" Serena froze.

"No. Why would you think that?"

"Well, the only thing that I can think of that could make you this down is if something happened between you and Darien. Come on Serena, I know something happened. I can tell if you're lying, don't hide this from me." All of a sudden, Serena spun around turned to face Molly and she gasped at the sadness swimming around in Serena's eyes.

"Look Moll, I just need some time alone right now. If it were anything really important and serious, I would tell you, but for now, I just want to be alone." Molly shook herself out of her stupor.

"Ok Serena, but remember that I'm here if you need anyone to talk to. You can talk to me about anything." Replied Molly. Serena just nodded and walked away. Molly just kept staring at her.

'Oh, Serena. I hope it has nothing to do with you and Darien. You guys love each other very much, and your love is pure. It's perfect, like it was meant to be.'

xXxXxXx

Serena just let her feet take her anywhere. She didn't care where she went as long as it was somewhere she could think and cry. When her feet stopped, she raised her head and found herself standing in front of Darien's apartment building. Tears started gathering in her eyes, threatening to fall as she started running to her house. It was too much for her. She just wanted Darien to hold her close, to whisper in her ear, to kiss her gently. She misses everything about him, and he's all she wants. She wants him back. Back to ease the pain in her heart that he seemed to have caused her just a few seconds ago.

-:-
When you cried I wiped away all of your tears
When you screamed I'd fight away all of your fears
I held your hand through all of these years
But you still have
All of me
-:-

Shaking hands held a framed picture of Serena and Darien holding each other. A flash of him remembering them kissing made his grip tighten. A teardrop fell on the glass and slid on the smooth surface. He put his finger to his wet cheek in shock, and then he threw the picture across the room. He buried his face in his hands, tears slipping through the gaps in between his fingers.

'Why doesn't she look at me like that?' he thought. 'Why doesn't she see how much I need her right now? Why him? He left her to go to America! I was here for her! I listened to her when she had a problem! I protected her! That day Sailor Iron Mouse attacked her on the roof, and she broke down and cried, I was there for her! I gave her my heart that day. I asked her the one question that has been plaguing my mind for a long time.' He lifted his head, his ponytail messy and undone, his blue eyes sad and desperate.

"Am I not good enough Serena?" He whispered hoarsely. "Am I not good enough? I was there for you. During that fight with Galaxia, I was there when u felt like giving up. When you finally saw Darien come back to life, I saw you cling to him like he was life itself. I gave you my heart and you still have it." He stood up, determination shining in his eyes. "I will win you over. I'll show you that I'm better than Darien, or my name isn't Seiya Kou."

-:-
You used to captivate me
By your resonating light
Now I'm bound by the life you left behind.
-:-

-:- Darien's POV -:-

Darien was sitting in his room all alone, and he hated it. He was always alone, ever since he was a little boy, but Serena got rid of the loneliness. Her sparkling eyes, her contagious laughter, her addicting kisses. He loved every little think about her. He loved her every flaw and to him, her flaws made her perfect. So what if she wasn't as smart as Amy. They could always have those study sessions which gave him more time to be with her. Who cares if she can't cook as good as Lita? They try together, and they have a lot of fun trying. He's not even going to say that she's not as pretty or mysterious as Mina and Raye, because to him, she's more beautiful than any goddess out there. She's not like the other girls he met. She's real and true to herself, and nothing can change that.

She was his light, and now she was gone. He truly thought that she was innocent, but maybe she really wasn't. As he looked around the room, he sees lots of pictures of him and Serena, both smiling and happy. The more he looks at them, the more he gets depressed. His heart aches, and it doesn't feel like it can love anymore.

'Oh Serena, how could you do this to me?'

-:-
Your face it haunts
My once pleasant dreams
Your voice it chased away
All of the sanity in me
-:-

-:- Serena's POV -:-

Serena found herself in a room full of all sorts of candy and sweets. Her eyes light up as she glomps the giant cake full of vanilla frosting. The giant chocolate cake walks forward as the vanilla cake hugs her back. All of a sudden, the vanilla cake morphs into Seiya. She tried to let go of him, but she was stuck. Before she could ask Seiya what was going on, the chocolate cake turned into Darien and he asked her why did she deceive him. She finally lets go of Seiya and tried to run to Darien, but her legs couldn't move. She looked at him, and saw those same emotionless eyes that scared her so much.

"Why Serena, why?"

"Darien!"

-:-
This wound won't seem to heal
This pain is just too real
There's just too much that time cannot erase
-:-

xXxXxXx

Serena woke up gasping and sweating. She sat up as the dream kept replaying itself. Those eyes. She hated those eyes. But his voice… it was full of hurt and betrayal, and it was all directed to her. She closed her eyes as she felt tears wanting to fall. Her parents suspected something, but they don't know anything about this. Serena decided that this would be the first thing that she'll hide from her family.

-:-
When you cried I'd wipe away all of your tears
When you'd scream I'd fight away all of your fears
And I held your hand through all of these years
But you still have
All of me
-:-

'Sammy would probably make fun of me, saying that I chased him away with my eating habits. Daddy would agree to the break-up whole-heartedly but get angry when he found out that Darien broke up with me. Mom would probably sympathize, but then she'd think that I'd get over it. They wouldn't understand how I felt. They'd just think that I can't handle rejection and Sammy would think that I was a crybaby. I'm tired of everyone thinking that about me. I don't want everyone to think of me as weak. I can be strong and serious when I had to, and I always see the bright side of things. Well, where's the bright side now?' She sighs as she falls back on her bed. She finally lets the tears drop as she hears Darien's voice in her head.

She closes her eyes and sees him as Tuxedo Mask.

Then as the Moonlight Knight.

Then as Prince Endymion.

Then as Neo-King Endymion.

And then as Darien. Plain, loyal, almost perfect Darien. He was the god's creation, perfect midnight black hair, perfect body, perfect face, intelligent, caring, deep ocean blue eyes, strong, agile, loyal, and so many other things. But then again, the gods also gave him some flaws. No one can be perfect. When she first met him, he was cold, mean, taunting, and serious. And he had a bad fashion sense. She giggled when she remembered the time she tried to get him to leave his ugly green jacket. There was a small smile on her face as she remembered the good times.

'Oh, why did he have to go?'

-:-
I've tried so hard to tell myself that you're gone
But though you're still with me
I've been alone all along
-:-

He was the only one to make her included, special. 'Well, that's a lie since Seiya made me feel the same way. Ever since our little "date", I don't know what I feel. Actually, ever since the starlights came, I've been feeling alone. Darien was going to America, I could've handled that because I had my friends, but they were all too hung up on the Three Lights to pay that much attention to me. Have I always been so selfish?'

-:-
When you cried I'd wipe away all of your tears
When you'd scream I'd fight away all of your fears
And I held your hand through all of these years
But you still have
All of me
-:-

At one time, Serena thought she could've gone with Seiya, but she had too much with Darien to just leave him for a starlight. Seiya made her feel special, yea, but Darien made her feel loved. He made her feel like nothing could ever replace her. She was one in a million, and Darien made sure to always remind her.

'I love you Darien. I always have, I always will.'
