Sorry, the first was the wrong thing!

A/N: Okay, first, sorry for taking so long to update, and then again for the little bit of writing. I already have an idea for the next chapter, however, and plan to start it tonight. In total, this story will be no more than about five chapters (SORRY!). Good freaking lord, I just realized how long its been since I've updated! LOL. Its absolutely PATHETIC! I really MUST apologize now…I didn't realize it until I was looking at reviews, and Kaitlin (Magical Maniac Girl), said something about an essay, and I'm like, that's got to be from eighth grade! Gods! Lol.

First, I'd like to dedicate this to Thayet1231! It was because of your reviews, for all of my stories, that have brought me back to my Tamora Pierce stories, and I plan to be updating on as many of them as possible, and will probably do quite a bit of writing while in France, so look for updates at the end of March! Thanks everyone! I will personally respond to reviewers at the bottom, as usual.

In Love with the Lady Knight

Chapter Two:

The next morning, the three were sitting at breakfast in the dining hall, Dom picking forlornly at his food, not paying much attention to what was going on around him, as Neal bounced happily on the bench. "Guess what, Kel?"

The lady knight rolled her eyes. "I don't really want to play, Neal, so just tell me."

He stuck out his bottom lip in a pout. "Fine. I see how it is. No one loves me anymore!"

The other two snorted simultaneously. "Just tell me, Neal," his best friend replied finally.

"I know something you don't know!" the older knight crowed merrily, clapping his hands together. Dom looked up instantly, eyes immediately alert.

"Oh, great Gods, Neal. Tell me already if you're going to, but otherwise, just keep it to yourself."

Grinning, Nealan replied, "All I wanted to tell you, was that my dear cousin, and your close, personal friend, Dom-" he was cut off by a rough hand being placed over his mouth, as piercing blue eyes glittered angrily at him.

Kel looked back and forth between the two, confused. "Am I missing something?" she asked slowly, wondering what was going on here. The two cousins were acting rather strange.

"Err…" the sergeant thought quickly, "I just wanted to know if you wanted to duel! Yes, that's it!" He smiled at his own ingeniousness, grateful that he was able to think of something so quickly.

She gave him a strange look. "We practice together every morning, so yes, I suppose so." She glanced at her fellow knight across from her, "What about you, Neal? Are you joining us today, or are you going back to Yuki?" she raised a brow questioningly.

Neal tittered. "No, I think that I must be a witness to the events today, for it guarantees to be interesting. I will certainly be joining you." He grinned, struck by a brilliant plan. "I've an idea, though? Why don't we have a…contest, of sorts?"

"What sort of contest?" she asked hesitantly, though she really was curious. "The winner gets a kiss."

The lady knight raised a brow, rather amused. "So you're going to kiss your cousin, Neal? Or, actually, allow your cousin to kiss you?"

He smirked evilly. "No, actually, I was thinking more that if you win, you can choose which one of us you want to kiss. But if, say, Dom wins, he gets to kiss you."

Sorry for the slightly corny and over-used challenge (okay, very corny!), but I have plans as to where its going! MWAHAHAHA cough Anyway, onto review replies…Also, if I have something bolded besides your name, its because I'm like….laughing or something. They should be in asterisks, but for some reason, fanfiction won't take those! GRR!

So, reviews...yeah!

daughter-of-fairies- I know! You cant help but feel sorry for him, with Neal ganging up on him as much as he is…Thanks for the review!

Atlanta Enchanted- Yup…I actually forgot about that small detail while doing this chapter. Oops! Yeah, I agree….KD is totally awesome…not as awesome as, say, Harry/Draco…winks…sorry, I'm an addict. I don't really know….it depends on how old he is in this chapter….I believe he's like four years Neal's senior, and Neal is four years older than Kel, correct? Good god, I need to reread. Before, I'd have known this all! Gah. Thanks for reading, and I'm glad you enjoy them!

The Weaving Wheel-yeah, I did, at the time. Now, I believe that Harry Potter fanfiction is like….The internet god's gift to us all. :D sorry, I'm strange! Glad you enjoyed!

Zacks Clone- lol. Yeah, I agree! It was EVIL of her not to tell us who she ended up with! Or quite nice, considering the fact that we can make it up and have anyone we want:D

Immortals Gurl-thanks!

EvilStrawberries-Guilty expression Sorry!

PsychoLioness-I keep thinking you're my best friend now, whenever I see your name. :D It just sounds so like her. You dropped the 13! I just realized that! LOL. Anyway, thanks!

Megster-Yeah, I agree!

LilliannaRose-I have to agree…he's the little, obnoxious dog bouncing around the house, jumping on you when you get in the door, nipping at your ankles…hehehe….i can actually picture that one! LOL.

Wake-Robin-Who said Dom would tell her at all? WINKS Only kidding…I think. LOL

Rock-Faerie- I will!

Fanta-while I love your name dearly, I have to shorten it, sorry! LOL. Oops, sorry, I'm late. I'll try to get the NEXT chapter up by Friday though, I SWEAR! I have TP reading to catch up on, too, darn it all. LOL.


Pookie- bite me, you flipping loser. By the way, PsychoLioness would be like the perfect name for you. Too bad its already taken by someone MUCH cooler! LOL. See you soon, nerd.

AlannaLovingWriter-LOL. I feel horrible! I plan to update soon, though. :D

Pheep-Lol. Thanks. I agree! Dom-and-Neal dynamics are the best….Thanks! I like such thorough reviews. It makes me feel like I did something correct:D Usually, my fics start out with me just picturing something, like in this case the "I know, I know…", and of course the part where Neal takes the apple away. I thoroughly enjoyed your review! Waves scrunchie back.

Thayet1231-Good lord, I love you! You've gotten me back on track, and I cant thank you enough for that! If you have a particular thing you'd like updated, tell me, and I will gladly do it:D
