Title: Forever Doesn't Always Mean Forever
Author's Note: Okay, my first posted Code Lyoko fic. I hope you all enjoy it. Please review.
"Yumi, I love you so much," Ulrich whispered before kissing me. I smiled, kissing him back, opening my mouth to accept his tongue. We had been dating for several years now and this was our first main obstacle. He was going away to college. Far away. It wasn't exactly his fault though, he had gotten the scholarship and I would never ask him to turn it down for me.
We ended up in his bed, his body pressing against mine and I moaned, running my fingers through his hair. He sighed, pulling back and looking at me. I smiled at him, letting one of my hands slide down his chest and he caught it, kissing it gently. "I love you too Ulrich," I replied. His hands slid under my shirt and I shivered, never taking my eyes from his.
In the back of my mind I suppose I knew where this was going. I knew that if we didn't stop now then it was an entirely realistic indication that we wouldn't be able to stop. I pressed against him and he kissed me again. All my previous coherent thought escaped me and I sighed, melting under his touch. "Yumi..are you sure..?" he whispered against my neck.
I nodded, trying to catch my breath and find my voice. "Yes. Yes, I'm sure," I whispered back, nodding my head in case he didn't understand my breathless tone. He nodded and our tongues were once again in battle, our hands exploring the body before us.
I awoke early the next morning. It was still grey outside and I stretched, wrapping my arms around the warm body next to mine, his arms wrapped around me in return and I snuggled against him. "I'm going to miss you," I whispered. He nodded, kissing my forehead and I sighed.
"I'll write you everyday. I'll call you every night," he promised. I laughed, shaking my head.
"As much as I want to believe that, I know you won't be able to do that. And you know it too. We'll be worlds apart and you'll have to deal with your classes. My day could be your night and vice versa. How about we just promise to contact each other when we're able to?" I asked, looking at him.
He looked uncertain but smiled a little at last. "It's a promise," he told me. And he sealed it with a kiss. His alarm went off and he reached over, shutting it off and sighing. "I've got to get ready," he groaned.
"Your all packed, right?" I asked. He nodded and I sat up, wrapping the blankets around my body. "So, come on, you need to get a shower, dressed, and have a good breakfast," I told him. I stood, pulling him up and he grinned.
"I take it your joining me?" he asked. I nodded, smiling and led him into the bathroom.
We ate breakfast at a little café in the airport, speaking little. I didn't want him to go. I already missed him. "I guess I better be going," he said slowly once we'd finished. I nodded and we stood. Jeremie, Odd, Sam, and Aelita had already said good bye at the farewell party last night. They were off at school or work now, unable to get away to say good bye. "Here, this is for you," he said, handing me a package. I looked at it.
"Do I open it now?"
"If you want to," he replied. I opened the box and laughed when a smaller box was revealed. I went through four of the boxes before I reached a small ring box. I opened it, expecting a smaller box, instead a gold ring with a dark blue sapphire on it. The band was woven gold, the three different types. I stared at it for a few moments before he took the ring from me. "Yumi Ishiyama, when I come back, will you marry me?" he asked.
"Yes.." I whispered. Tears gathered in my eyes and I smiled at him. "Yes," I repeated. He slid the ring on my finger and I hugged him tightly. We kissed goodbye and he boarded his plane as I stood there smiling and crying.
