Okay, this is my first Sailor Moon fanfic so don't be too harsh on me. As of right now, I don't have a title for this fic but if you have any ideas for a title, I would gladly consider them. Lastly, I would like to thank Icess for helping me improve my story. Either by making some corrections or just simply suggestions, I couldn't have done it without your help. So, thank you:)
Now that I'm done with that, on with the story!
Darien sat on the park bench waiting for Serena. She was supposed to have been here five minutes ago, but he knew Serena. She was always late. While thinking of all the times Serena had run into him because she was late, he heard a muffled cry. He turned around and saw Rei sitting on a bench in a corner crying. Knowing Serena wasn't going to be there soon, he walked over to Rei to try and comfort her.
"Hey Rei. What's wrong?"he asked gently, not wanting to upset her further.
Rei quickly wiped away her tears and looked up. "Oh, hi Darien." she said and snuffled.
"What's wrong?" he asked once more as he sat next to her.
"Nothing." she said then turned to avert his gaze.
"You can tell me Rei. I promise I won't laugh."
"Look Darien, I know you are trying to help, but I don't want your help. I don't need it."
"Yes you do. Something is bothering you and I want to help."
"Well, I don't remember asking for it."
"I know that, but as a friend, I want to help."
"And as a friend, I'm telling you that I don't want it."
"C'mon Rei, you don't have to be so secretive all the time."
"Just tell me."
"Please." Darien said in a begging tone.
Rei sighed and said, "Alright." She turned to look at Darien."Chad and I…we...we…broke up." She said softly as more tears began to run down her cheeks once more.
"Oh Rei, I'm so sorry."Darien sympathized.
After a few more moments of comforting Rei and telling her how sorry he was, Rei calmed down and sighed."It's alright. I guess it just wasn't meant to be."
Darien slowly put his arms around her. She gave a short gasp, but didn't complain. She moved closer and rested her head on his shoulder. She knew she should have pulled away, but his comfort was needed too much. She began to cry again, but even harder. Darien was shocked that Rei had moved closer, but not wanting to seem rude, he hugged her closely. When he realized that she had stopped crying, he pushed her away slightly. Rei looked up at him and saw a question in his midnight blue gaze. Before she realized what she was doing, she kissed him.
Serena quickly grabbed a piece of toast and ran out of the house. "I'm late!" she yelled. As soon as she reached the park, she stopped to catch her breath. She decided to walk the rest of the way there. For the first time, Serena looked at her surroundings. 'Wow, it's such a beautiful day.'Sadly, the beautiful day would soon come to be a sad and gloomy day.
Serena was making her way through the park when she saw a couple kissing. However, she was too far away to see who they were. 'Mmmm, they seem familiar'As she got closer, realization hit her. She did know them. "No, he wouldn't…she wouldn't…they wouldn't do this to me!" she said.
Fear griped her heart as she moved closer towards the couple. Uncertainty clouded her mind. She stopped dead in her tracks as her suspicions were confirmed. She could feel the tears running down her cheeks. She tried to say something, anything, but couldn't. She was left speechless. Minutes seemed to pass before she regained her voice. "How…how could you?" she asked in a shaky voice.
Darien pulled away and turned to looked up to see a teary eyed Serena. "Serena, I…" he said. He let go of Rei immediately and headed to where Serena was standing.
She stepped back and said, "No, stay away from me."
"Serena-" he started, but Serena interrupted him.
"How could you Darien! I thought you liked me!"
"I do." he stated simply.
"Well, you have a weird way of showing it! If your way of showing me that you like me is by kissing one of my friends, than maybe I should do the same thing." she cried, getting more upset with each word she spoke.
"No, you don't understand." Darien said once more in his defense.
Rei had been quiet, but decide that she should explain to Serena what had happened. After all, it was her fault. "Serena, he didn't-" she began, but didn't finish because Serena cut her off.
"And you Rei." Serena said and turned cold eyes to Rei."I can't believe you would do this to me. I thought you were my friend."
"I thought you guys cared about me!" Serena screamed.
"We do."Darien and Rei said at the same time.
"If this is what you two do to people you care about, I don't want to know what you do to those you don't!" she yelled. And with that, she quickly turned around and ran away.
"Serena, WAIT!" Darien yelled. Knowing she wasn't going to stop, he ran after her. It took him awhile to catch up, but when he finally did, he caught hold of her arm. "Serena…please….wait." he panted, trying to catch his breath. He never knew that she could run so fast. "Let me explain."
"Let go." she said as she tried to pull away.
"No, not until you let me explain." Darien tightened his grip on her arm, not wanting to leave things the way they were.
"You don't get it do you. I just want you to leave…me…ALONE!" she pulled her arm free from his grasp and ran to her house.
When she got home, she quickly walked in and ran to her room. She ignored her mother's question and ran up the stairs. When she reached her room, she walked in and made sure that she locked the door, then went to her bed and lay down. She grabbed a pillow and hugged it closely. She let all the emotions she felt when she saw Darien and Rei kissing out and cried silently to herself.
