Author's Notes: This is really horrible…I should NOT be updating this…again… -.- Just shows how stupid I am. I am writing a Fable fic. With Kai and Tyson as my muses. O.o Why? Because I'm weird. That's why. Anyways, this is the final chapter…third story that I will have completed.
Jezza-jay: Who? Makoto? Yes he is.
Sennen Bryony: XD That's what I was aiming for!
kawaii-kirei: Ultimate Bishie! Like his Dad. XP
Tinanit Enozym: He's a big brother. He knows these things. O.o
Fireie Gurl: Aren't they?
deathrosekitty: Nah, Makoto's actually very smart. XP
Shadow Vampiress: I'm updating!
Yukiko-Angel: Yes it is… pats Gou on the head
HikariAotsuki: Two OCs of mine. I've said that before…o.O They're both dead.
Gou's eye twitched in anger as he sat up in his bedroom, glaring at the door in front of him.
"Never, never, never, never, never, NEVER!" he hissed, swinging his feet over the side of the bed. He glanced over at the clock radio that sat on the night table next to his bed. "Eleven o'clock. Good God." He stood up and shook his head, his hair waving a bit with the movement. "I don't have nightmares…"
Gou opened the door to his room quietly, not wanting to wake his Father who was asleep in the room next to his. He peeked down both sides of the long hallway. It was except for a ray of light shining out of one room farther away, from his Father's Study. "Dad?"
Gou blinked and frowned, starting towards the room. He peeked around the door frame and saw his father staring sleepily at a sheet in front of him.
"What are you doing?"
Kai looked up and smiled at his son. "Just finishing up some work. Why are you still up?" he asked, putting on the glasses that sat next to a pile of papers. "Did I wake you up?"
Gou shook his head. "No. I just couldn't sleep." He walked over to his Father and peeked at the desk. "You should be in bed, Dad."
"So should you. Why couldn't you sleep?" Kai asked, turning to face Gou. "Don't tell me you had a nightmare."
Gou shrugged, his face going a light shade of pink. "Maybe…"
Kai frowned. "But you never have nightmares. What happened?"
"I didn't say I had a nightmare…"
Kai sighed and took off his glasses again, setting them on the desk. He pulled Gou onto his lap and held the nine-year-old close. "You can talk about these things you know, it'll make things much better."
Gou nodded and hugged Kai back. "I don't know…it wasn't one of those nightmares with the monsters and stuff…it was just…scary in a realistic sense."
"Those are always the worst kind of nightmares. What happened?" Kai asked again.
They sat in silence for a few minutes, both Father and Son just thinking.
"Makoto moved away…" continued Gou, clinging to his father. "And I was left all alone…and then everyone just disappeared…"
Kai kissed the top of Gou's head. "Don't worry. Makoto's not going anywhere, and I'm not going to die anytime soon."
They sat in silence for a little bit more and Gou's eyelids began to feel a little heavier with every passing second. Kai's hands ran through his son's hair lovingly and both felt very relaxed.
The younger Hiwatari yawned after a bit and snuggled closer to his father. "I'm sorry Dad…"
"For what?" Kai looked down at Gou, expecting an answer, but Gou had fallen fast asleep. Kai smiled and stood up with the nine-year-old in his arms.
"Good night Gou…"
I guess it was just silent, my apology, him forgiving me…my acceptance.
For what you may ask.
Let's just say that I guess that dream, or nightmare I guess, kind of changed my outlook on things. And helped me accept my Father for his sexual preference. I never knew my Mother, but I know my Father well enough to know he does what his heart tells him to. And I guess, his heart told him to fall in love with Mr. Kinoyima, or Tyson now. I still don't like him.
I woke up the next morning, and I told myself, almost promised, that I would never get upset at my Father for something stupid like who he loved and didn't…
Everything's fine now, Makoto and I get along just fine and whenever we see our Fathers out together, we both end up attacking them – not literally, just sort of tackling them.
Dad and I got closer, and we talk more now…
So everything's fine.
…until my Dad told me something that I kind of hoped he hadn't.
End of Gou's POV+
"You stayed up late again."
Kai looked up from his coffee and shrugged at Gou, stifling a yawn. "Hn…"
Gou shook his head and sat down at the table next to Kai. "You should stop that, you know."
Kai sighed and put down his mug of coffee and frowned. "Gou…I have something to tell you."
Gou froze. This was exactly how the conversation went when Kai told him…and it didn't end too well. "What?"
"What would you say if…you spent lots of time with Makoto?"
Gou blinked and looked at his father oddly. "Why are you asking?"
Gou shrugged and replied, "I wouldn't mind I guess. As long as it didn't include his Father too much…"
"Oh…" Kai's frown grew.
"What would you say if I told you that Makoto and Mr. Kinoyima…Tyson were moving in with us?"
There was some silence and then…
Author's Notes: There is DEFINITELY going to be a sequel for this.
