Firefairy032003 Wow! Yay! This is the most reviews I've ever received for a fic. I'm so happy that you all liked this fic so much. Sadly, this is the last chapter to it and it has taken me awhile to post because I kept getting writer's block. so Enjoy!
It had only been a few days since the attack had happened, but Seto could tell that Serenity was still shaken up by it. "Serenity, they can't hurt you where they're at are now. I promise you" Seto said, trying to make her feel better.
"I know, but still…," Serenity said, her voice trailing off. She wanted to believe him, but she still had this feeling of dread that something wasn't right and that something bad was going to happen.
Seto didn't know what to say to convince her that everything was going to be okay when he wasn't quite sure himself. He felt terrible that she was upset, that there was nothing he could do to comfort her.
"I want to believe you. I do. It's just... I have this feeling that something bad is still going to happen," she said sadly, looking away from Seto as she felt a sharp pain in her stomach.
Seto was about to say something else as in another attempt in trying to comfort her, but she suddenly got up and rushed to the bathroom. Seto followed her, concern crossing his face as he knocked on the bathroom door. "Is everything okay in there?" he asked.
Serenity knew that there was something wrong with her. Ever since she woke up that morning, she had felt nothing but sickness. 'Why do I have this feeling that there's something wrong with me?' she thought to herself as she suddenly felt sick and rushed towards the sink, throwing up as she felt a sharp pain in her abdomen.
Serenity exited the bathroom with a fake smile on her face. "Yeah, but I'm kind of tired, so I'm going to bed now" she said quietly as she headed towards her bedroom.
'I can tell when you're lying to me, Serenity. I don't know why you don't trust me enough to be honest with me.' he thought to himself quietly as he followed her, sitting on the edge of the bed beside her.
"Don't even try lying to me, Serenity, because I can see right through your lies," he snapped at her, feeling slightly angered that she would even try lying to him.
Serenity just rolled her eyes at him as she closed her eyes and tried to sleep, but she could still feel Seto still staring at her, not moving from his spot on the bed.
"What?" she asked him innocently as she cracked open one eye.
"Never mind. Obviously, you think I don't deserve to know whatever is bothering you, so you continue to lie about right to my face," he explained angrily.
Losing his patience, he was about to leave when he felt Serenity stare at him. "I'm just afraid of how you're going to react to what I have to tell you" she started to explain slowly.
"Just tell me. That way I can help you get through it. Otherwise, how will I ever know if I can trust you?" he asked sadly, making her feel guilty.
"I know, and that's why I will tell you the truth, but promise me that you won't get upset and leave me?" she asked him sadly.
"I would never do that to you. Why would I ever want to leave you when I care about you so much?" he asked softly as he held her in his arms in a protective embrace.
"Okay, well... I think that when that guy… raped me… I might… be pregnant" she explained, looking down at the ground ashamed of herself.
Seto didn't say anything for a few moments, then placed his hand underneath her chin and tilted her face up. "Like I said, I'll help you get through this. It's nothing for you to feel ashamed about. Things just happen that we have no control over, no matter how badly we want to," he said, gently pulling her into a passionate kiss…
A few days later, Serenity was in the hospital, finding out that she was, in fact, pregnant. She started to cry.
"Hey, what's wrong? Why are you crying?"Seto asked her in concern.
"I wanted it to be our child, not the result of some guy raping me," she explained as she continued to cry.
This only made Seto smirk, but he looked away when Serenity gave him a dirty look. "That doesn't matter. Well, it shouldn't anyways. It'll still be our child" he explained, making her smile.
"I guess you're right,"she gave in and smiled up at him softly. "I love you, Seto,"she said as she kissed him lightly on the lips.
"I love you, too,"he said softly, smiling down at her…
It had only been a few months since then. The baby was almost due, but something unexpected happened. Serenity was walking down the steps one day when she tripped and fell down the whole flight of stairs.
Seto was at her side at once, but knew something was wrong when he saw Serenity coughing up blood, her arms wrapped around her stomach. He rushed her to the hospital, where her fears were confirmed. She had hurt herself pretty badly, and as a result had lost the baby.
Serenity burst into angry tears, ignoring the soothing words that Seto kept whispering to try and calm her down. "How could this of have happened? Why me? What did I do to deserve this?" she asked as more tears shook her fragile body.
Seto wrapped his arms around her and brought her into a comforting embrace. "It wasn't your fault. You did nothing wrong. It just happened. It'll be okay. I'm here" he whispered to her yet again, trying to wipe her tear-streaked face.
"I know, but why did it have to be me? It could have been anyone else,"she said weakly as the tears had started to stop.
"It's okay. I don't know why it happened to you, but we can try having another child if that's what you want?" he suggested, smirking as he leaned down to kiss her passionately.
"Thanks, Seto. That's what I want,"she said, smiling as she returned the kiss.
"I just want you to be happy, and I'll do whatever it takes to keep it that way,"Seto explained softly.
"I know, and that's one of the reasons why I love you so much,"Serenity said cheerfully as she smiled up at Seto weakly. "It's weird. When I found out that I was pregnant, I didn't even want the baby. Now that it's gone…,"Serenity started to explained, but trailed off.
"I know. That's because you're such a loving and caring person, and that's one of things that I love about you. You can love someone no matter what,"he said gently, making her smile…
The next day Serenity went for a walk to clear her head, still upset by what had happened. She was getting bored trapped inside the mansion all day. She had no idea where she was headed, but ended up in front of Yugi's house/shop.
'I wonder how Yugi is doing. I haven't talked to him in awhile.' Serenity thought to herself as she entered the game shop.
A small bell on the front door rang as Serenity entered the shop. She looked around at the small shop and smiled as Yugi approached her.
"Hey, Yugi, how are you?"she asked him cheerfully.
"Hey, it's been awhile. I'm doing well. what How about you?"he asked, smiling sweetly up at her.
"Good, I guess. How are things at school?"she asked him quietly, unsure of what else to say.
"Same as usual. So, why did you come here?"Yugi asked her curiously, looking down at the ground.
"I'm not really sure. I was taking a walk and ended up here,"she explained awkwardly.
"Oh, okay. Well, it was nice seeing you again,"Yugi said quietly, returning to his cheerful self.
"Yeah, you too. Hey, Yugi, are you still angry at me for what happened between Tea and me?" she asked, taking him by surprise.
"No, I understand why. I guess we all have our enemies,"Yugi explained, making her smile.
"You were always the smart one, Yugi,"Serenity smirked as she waved him goodbye and exited the game shop...
As Serenity walked home, thinking about her conversation with Yugi. 'I just hope that he's happy he seemed kind of distant.' she thought to herself as she continued walking towards the mansion.
Before she reached the area where Seto's mansion was at, she decided to walk toward another area of Domino. She started laughing to herself when she recognized a familiar person.
There stood Tea on the street corner, asking for money like a beggar. Serenity walked up to her unable to hide her laughter. "You make it look so easy,"Serenity sneered as she gave Tea a dollar.
"Shut up. I need the money for the dance program I'm in. Unlike you I don't have a rich sugar daddy to give me whatever I want,"Tea spat, talking about her and Seto.
"Is that what you think of me, Tea? Wow, and people think Seto is malicious towards others. Obviously, there are people worse than him"Serenity said, looking at Tea in disgust.
Serenity decided to walk away, ignoring Tea, until Tea she caught up to with her and grabbed her by the hair. "Why can't you ever let shit things go?" Serenity snapped at her, pushing her aside and continuing on toward Seto's mansion.
Yay! I'd like to thank Kiwingz and Ceara Corey for helping me with this fic, and to all of you that reviewed. That's what motivated me to continue this story
P.S.- I'm working on another Yu-Gi-Oh fic called You Don't Know Me As Well As You Think You Do which will eventually have SetoxSerenity and YugixBakura
