Chapter Two: Let the Rain Fall
It was a sunny, cool day in april and Davis had just finnished one of his Teachers College courses and he had the rest of the day off. He sat alone in a coffee shop. Looking out the window staring blankly at all the people walking by. So this is what it feels like to be alone, Davis thought to himself. It had been Two months since Kari had broken up with him. Her logic was that College was something to be taken seriously and the thought of having a boyfriend would interfere with her full potential. Davis disagreed with this assumption. He thought that it would be nice to have someone there especially since they are attending the same school, for comfort and help. His rebuttle against Kari's decision ended up ending the relationship. Kari claimed that Davis was just obviously not capable of having a serious relationship since he had no regard to her feelings. There break up was short,sweet and to the point. Davis had tried apologizing and talking to her but Kari's decision was final. So it was over.
Davis felt frustrated, He saw her everyday in class and yet he couldn't speak to her, couldn't reason with her, he even had a hard time looking at her. He felt such strong feelings towards her and she didn't even seem to notice. Or she did notice she just didn't care. This brought him back to the "Digimon Days" when she would always flirt with T.K just to make him jelous. Kari seemed to think it was all fun and games. But deep down inside Davis was confused and hurt. Why couldn't she just take him and his feelings seriously.
He blinked, the sky had began to cloud over now and a light drizzle of rain was covering the ground.
"I better get home before it starts to pour" Davis said just loud enough for himself to hear.
He got up,and walked out the door. The closest place to here would be his parents apartment so he decided to head there. The rain grew heavy and a slight fog began to settle. Before he could gather up another thought to occupy his mind on the long way home, someone walked into him.
The day couldn't get any worse Yolie concluded to herself as she walked home. Stuck out in the rain without a proper coat or anything. Although this weather seemed not to bother her as much since her crew and her dilivered papers in this kind of weather all the time. Still, the fog was making very hard to see, she looked down on the ground. Little drops of rain were making ripples in the puddles around her. It reminded her of tears falling. Before she could even look up to avoid it, she had walked straight into someone.
"Oh my gosh I am so sorry I wasn't watching where I was doing" Yolie said apologetically
"Don't worry about it Miss, this fog is getting terrible and I can hardly see either" Davis replied
Yolie took one step back to look at this man. He was tall maybe about 6'1 with dark brown shaggy hair that wet and sticking to his face. He had these dark blue eyes that you could just get lost in, and if his face didn't grab your attention his body would. Wearing no more than a black shirt and jeans this man was obviously fit. With long muscular arms and a broad chizzled chest. Yolie could feel a slight blush on her face, how could she have made such a fool of herself infront of such a babe.
He looked down at this woman who had just ran into him moments before. She was tall for a woman about 5'9 with light brown hair fixed up into a bun. She was wearing black pants and a dark blue sweater that stuck to her slender figure like glue. Davis guessed he was about his age, maybe a couple of years younger, none the less very attractive. His thoughts stopped, He noticed her staring and self conciously realised that he himself was staring. He averted his gaze to the ground.
"Well uh there's no point just standing here in the rain, I was just heading to my parents place, it's only a couple blocks away, why don't you join me". Davis said
Yolie stared for a moment "Thanks, that would be very kind of you, it's good to know that there are still nice people in the world, sometimes I feel as though there aren't".
"Tell me about it" Davis agreed soberly
Yolie cleared her throat as they started walking "I don't mean to be rude but can I have your name"
"Oh of course, Davis, Davis Motomiya, and you are?"
Yolie stopped turned to Davis and gave him a hug "Davis, I can't believe it's really you, I haven't seen you in ages!". Davis looked at this girl in wonder, who was she and why did she claim to know him. "Do I know you?" Davis said slowly
"It's Yolie, you air head!" Yolie replied in good humor
Davis stared in awe, he couldn't believe it was really Yolie he hadn't seen her since his graduation, since everyone pretty much went there own seperate ways. "Yolie I can't tell you how happy I am too see you, Lets hurry up and get to my parents place before we both get sick" They started to run, and didn't stop until they reached apartment 207 on the fifth floor.
He opened the door and called out "Anybody home?" He got no answer "I guess no ones home" davis told Yolie
"Gee you think, I couldn't gather that for myself when there was no answer" Yolie replied sarcasticly
Davis loved how they could just joke around with eachother, have a casual convorsation, talk about everything under the moon. How he enjoyed Yolie's sense of humor.
"I'm really glad that you ran into me today, I can't believe it's been a whole year, I'm sorry for not calling"
Yolie looked at Davis' genuine face "It isn't your fault, I'm just as much to blame, but we've both been busy"
Yolie loved how Davis was always so sincere and caring, he was one of the best friends she had ever had.
"Well come on in and make yourself at home, maybe you should change because your clothes are soaked"
Davis told her
"I think that's a good idea" Yolie replied
"One second I will get you some pants and a t-shirt to wear and I'll throw your clothes in the dryer"
Davis disappeared for about 5 minutes and when he came back he was no longer wearing jeans and a black shirt but baggy red track pants. Yolie watched him come around the corner trying to pull down his white t-shirt and hand her his clothes at the same time. She stared at his six pack for a moment before taking the clothes. Davis pulled his shirt down and pointed her to the spare bedroom. He sat down on the couch and waited until Yolie came out. Even in baggy pants and a t-shirt he still couldn't help but notice how attractive she looks. Davis blinked, snap out of it man, you and Yolie have been friends forever, thats all just friends.
Yolie sat down and they started to talk. About school, relationships, world issues, the digimon days and there goals in life. Yolie was fully aware that Davis had been inching towards her the whole time, until finally they were sitting closely together. Davis casually put his arm up on the head of the couch around Yolie. Yolie couldn't deny how right this felt, even though it was Davis. So gradually she moved in closer until they were snuggled together on the couch. They talked for a few more hours and then before they knew what was happening they had fallen asleep, in eachothers arms.
Author's Note: Hopefully you will get a sense of how the relationship picked off from here, I the next chapter I post will be about Davis and Yolie when they start realising there true feelings and confessing there love for one another. Until then! Cheers!
