So far I got two good reviews and something in the back of my mind is telling me that I have to at least try and write this story… So I will.
Disclaimer- I own the idea of this story so that has to count for something.
Lacus's eyes grew wide with disbelief as she pulled away. "What?" she asked as if she hadn't heard him. 'I knew it. It was too soon.' Athrun thought. "I love you. I've never stopped loving you."
She shook her head. "You can't just do this. Its isn't fair." She whispered. "No, what isn't fair is that I can't spend one moment not thinking of you. When Cagalli used to try and kiss me I would think of you and how your lips felt. When she made me go shopping with her I couldn't help but think of how certain things would look on you. You gave me no moment's piece while I slept and it was twice as worse when I was awake."
She starred him in the eye for a moment then shook her head. "If you love me so much then how come you had to be with Cagalli to discover your feelings?" Those words stung. She had not spoken harshly but she might as well have.
Athrun was speechless. There could be no answer that was right. "I… I was with her because I thought it would take my mind off you." He said finally. "She liked me and I thought that I could try and return those feelings. But I can't."
"I can't do this. I appreciate the visit but I can't do this now." "When?" His question caught her off guard. "When will you be able to this?" she shook her head in disbelief. "Not now not ever!" with those words she ran away from him.
He couldn't let her go. It wasn't that easy. He had broken hearts to be with her and he would be damned if she thought that he would go away that easily. Chasing after her his heart ached because he had not ever wanted to see her look at him that way, especially not right after he told her that he loved her.
Lacus had run into the house without a word to anyone. Slamming her bedroom door behind her she collapsed on the bed. The Haros' all gathered around her silent in the first time in all of there lives.
Athrun opened the door a few minuets later and saw her laying there slightly trembling. Before he could make her aware of his presence all the Haros that he had ever made pilled up together and made a large box around him keeping him away from there beloved Lacus.
"What the hell?" he asked trying to push them away but they just kept on coming back. "Lacus!" he yelled. She looked up wiping a tear from her eye. Seeing Athrun battle against the wall of Haros made her laugh.
Finally he pushed through getting a screw driver from his pocket threatening to dismantle if they didn't leave him alone. Turning his back to them he got a good look at Lacus who was looking away from him.
Bending down on one knee he grabbed her hand. "Why are you so afraid of me?" he asked. "I didn't do anything wrong!" "You did do something wrong Athrun! Why can't you see that?" she asked taking her hand back.
"The only thing that I ever did wrong was get out of the way when Kira told me that he loved you." "Kira?" she looked at him like he was crazy. "Kira never loved me. You're just trying to make up excuses!" she accused.
"What are you talking about? Of course he loved you. He asked you to marry him but then you refused breaking his heart last year." Athrun remembered the day exactly. He remembered the exact moment when Kira had told him that he loved Lacus.
Kira walked up to Athrun. He looked like a mess. There were bags under his eyes, his hair just looked like a swirl of brown on his head, and his body shook like he had been sleep deprived for a long time.
"You look horrible." He had told his friend as soon as he saw him. "I know. I… I haven't been able to sleep for a long time. I have to ask you something but I'm not really sure how. I've been up for hours just trying to think of the words to say."
Athrun looked questioningly. "Just ask. It doesn't matter." He tried to reassure his friend. "Okay. Um… It's about Lacus." 'No!' Athrun mentally screamed. 'Shit! Not her! Kira has been so messed up… no matter what he asks me about her… I have to give him whatever it is what he wants. Even if it is Lacus.'
"What about her?" he asked casually, fearing the answer. "I want to know what your relationship is with her." He looked scarred, lately Kira always looked scarred. "She is my friend. You know that." Athrun tried not to show any sense hat anything was wrong.
"Do you think that it would be okay if I asked her out? I mean on a date?" 'No!' "I don't see why not." His friend gave him a relaxing smile. "Thank you Athrun you have no idea how much this means to me." 'And you have no idea how much it means to me.'
"He never asked me to marry him. We never dated. Is that…" "Is that what?" he asked sitting next to her. "Is that why you never visited me the last few years?" looking away he nodded.
"Kira called me and told me how you were doing every week. He told me about things going on in your life and dates that the two of you had gone on…" "Kira was sent to a mental institution last year Athrun. He tried to break into my house and kidnap me." She interrupted.
His head shot towards her and she could that there was anger and guilt in his eyes. "He what?" she just nodded. "He kept talking about how perfect our life was going to be together and how he had such a good friends as you to give him a chance with me."
"Lacus…" he was at a loss for words. Tears formed in her eyes. "When he had come for me that day I was scarred. You don't know how scarred I was. But it wasn't really because of him but it was more because I knew that there was no knight in shinning armor that was coming to save me. That had been your job and you weren't there. You weren't there because you left me for someone else!" she accused.
"What!" Athrun stood up outraged. "You heard what I said." Tears were falling freely from her eyes. "If I had known that Kira had never asked you out or that he tried to kidnap you I would have come running no matter what Cagalli or the rest of the world thought because I love you. You don't have the right to say or even imply that I don't."
"Get out." She whispered. "You don't love me. You don't even know me! Get the hell out of my house!" she screamed trying to push him away. Athrun had a look of shock on his face as his eyes grew wide and his body limp.
"L-Lacus? Do you really hate me this much?" she heard the words that came out of his mouth but did not comprehend why he had said them until he feel on the floor lifeless. She screamed when she saw blood pout out of a wound in his back.
'This doesn't make any sense.' She thought backing away in terror. "Why doesn't it?" a voice asked from behind her. Instantly she turned around. Kira stood on the other side of her bed right next to an open window.
"What are you doing here? How did you know what I was thinking?" she asked backing away almost tripping on Athrun's dead corps. "I came for a little visit. I heard Athrun was here and couldn't stay away."
Kira walked towards her. His hair was a mess and there were dark circles under his eyes. He had a crazy grin on his face when he showed her a bloody knife that he had used to kill her former fiancé with.
Shaking her head tears rolled down her cheeks in a never ending river. "No. No." she kept repeating. "You couldn't have." He stuck his lip but in a pout and ran with super coordinator speed to her side.
"You know that I can. This whole super coordinator thing gives me the ability to have killed him without either of you noticing I was even in the room." His crazy grin returned as he grabbed a fistful of her hair, making her scream.
"No Kira. It's your super coordinator abilities that make you the sick and crazy man you are now." He pushed her into a wall. "That isn't true Lacus. You had a big part of it and so did he." He pointed to Athrun, kicking him over on his back.
"He said it would be okay if I could be with you but I knew that it wasn't okay. Cagalli told me that in his sleep he calls out your name every night. When ever we talk he would ask about you non stop." After pushing her into the wall again she slumped to the floor feeling blood come out of her forehead.
"I had to let him know that you were mine once and for all. But then you sent me away to that… to that place! Lacus you should have known that I would be back for you. I've watched you for the last week waiting for the right time. And then the man who said that I could have you, the man who said he was my best friend came here to try and take you away? I didn't think so. Athrun will never hurt anyone ever again." she stole a glance at the man who had just been confessing his love to her moments before with terror.
"Athrun has never hut anyone before. He never intentionally hurt me." She realized making Kira laugh. He bent down next to her. "It's a bit too late for that now isn't it?" he said cheerily forcing her to kiss him.
Lacus hit him as hard as she could in between his legs trying to stand up. "You bastered! Athrun was your friend and he really loved me! How dare you!" Kira stood up still smiling. "Incase you don't remember you last words to him were. 'Get the hell out of my house'? You two really didn't seem so much in love."
He left her speechless. "Awe, did I hurt your feelings? Come here and let me make it up to you." He pulled her into an embrace. "There, there," He said. "I'll make everything all better again." She felt the cold and already bloodied steal of the knife enter her back with an unbearable amount of pain. Falling backwards she looked up at Kira one last time. He was frowning as he placed her on top of Athrun. "I really had a blast at our little reunion today; too bad we can't do it again some time. Good bye Lacus goodbye Athrun." She felt the taste of blood in her mouth as he left the room. Suddenly it all just went dark.
Kira walked over to the servant that had informed Lacus that she was going to be receiving company earlier that day. "Ms. Clyne and Mr. Zala do not want to be disturbed for anything. They're celebrating there newfound love." He winked as he left through the front door.
Whistling he placed his hands in his pocket walking down her driveway. "I wonder who I should call up next. I know! I haven't seen Sai in a long time…"
End… (Or is it?)
Okay I think I got a little crazy towards the end. I was going to delete this but then I started typing and couldn't stop. It was fun making Kira crazy… I should try something else like it some time… anyway, hope you liked! –smile-
