(A/N Ok, well here I am back with another story but longer than my other 2. Please read and review!)

Disclaimer: sighs How I wish I owned Code Lyoko, but I don't own any part of it.

"Ulrich?" Yumi reached across the table and tapped him on the shoulder. Ulrich jumped at the touch of her finger as he came from deep thought.

"Huh, what?" Ulrich looked up and met the stare he was receiving from his friends.

"Are you ok buddy?" Odd asked.

"Yea, I'm fine." Yumi eyed him suspiciously. "I'm fine, really."

"If you say so…" Jeremie began to get up from the table.

"Guys, if you don't mind, I'm going to go check up on Aelita."

"See ya Einstein!" Odd called after him.

"We better go too, class is going to start soon!"

"Alright, come Odd, let's go," Ulrich replied as he got up from the table along with Yumi. They all headed off to their classes in a hurry.

As Ms. Hertz passed back tests from the previous week, Ulrich received his test that had a huge D at the top and red marks all over. He groaned and cussed under his breath. 'I've got to start do better in school. XANA keeps me from studying though,' he thought. Through the whole class period, he couldn't stop thinking about his test. So he was pretty surprised when he heard the bell ring. Odd, who was sitting next to him, jumped up from his sleeping state in alarm right before he said, "Oh good! School's out!" Ms. Hertz simply shook her head at the strange boy and dismissed the class.

The boys sat at their usual bench waiting for Yumi. Odd sat down and started to annoy Jeremie who was currently typing an English paper on his laptop while Ulrich just waited patiently for Yumi to arrive. Finally, she made her way through the crowd of students over to where they were sitting. "Hi guys!" She called as she sat down in between Odd and Ulrich.

"Hey Yumi," Ulrich replied. She smiled sweetly at him like she always did.

'I wish I could tell Yumi how I feel about her. But what if she doesn't like me back? This whole thing makes me nervous,' he thought to himself. Ulrich looked at Yumi and was surprised to see she was looking back at him. Her deep eyes once again searched him for answers to what was on his mind. She studied him carefully. Ulrich grew nervous at how she was watching his every move.

Yumi's POV

I wonder what's wrong with Ulrich. He's been really quiet today. Well more then usual. I wish he would just tell me what's wrong. "Ulrich…are you…positive that you're alright?" I asked quietly so that Odd and Jeremie couldn't hear.

Normal POV

The truth was no…he wasn't ok. He had got another bad grade on a test, his feelings for Yumi were becoming unexplainable, XANA attacks were keeping him tired, and then there was the one thing that had been bugging him the most all day…

"Yea Yumi, I'm ok…it's just that…I got a call today, and well my dad is, er, moving close to the school."

"Ulrich that's great!" Yumi replied happy to hear that everything was ok. But Ulrich knew that this news was far from great.

Ok well sorry this first chapter might be really short and kind of boring, but it'll get better. Please review. 2 or 3 reviews will get you another chapter. Thanks for reading!
