I just to thank everyone who enjoys this story. I'm glad some of you like this. So please read, review, and no flames.

Togusa followed the Major to a small, rarely used room near the Tacikoma hanger. Togusa sat down on one of the brown chairs in the center of the room while Motoko just stood by the door. Togusa sat nervously waiting for something to happen. "I don't know where to start." said Motoko with a dissapointed tone in her voice. "Your performance is slacking, you're often late and you seem to be avoiding us. I want an explaination for your recent behavior and I want it now."

"You want an explaination? Okay Major I'll give you one. You're the reason why my performance is lackluster. You're the reason why I can't get up in time for work anymore." he said to her. Motkoko became angry at the fact that Togusa said everything was her fault. 'How dare he blame me for his problems.' she thought.

"That's a horrible excuse. It's not my fault you can't shoot straight anymore."

"I can't shoot straight because you're always on my mind. If i think about you, I don't function right. If I don't think about you, I can't live. It's a lose lose situation. I love you Major." Togusa sadly confesed to her. The major was shocked. She didn't know how to respond. "There, I said it. Now I'm sure I'm out of a job so can I leave." Togusa got up from the chair and headed for the door.

"You're not going anywhere and you're not out of a job." Motoko said as he sat back down on the chair. "Togusa, I must know something. How long have you loved me?"

"Since I got shot during the Laughing Man case. At first I thought it was some infatuation that would fade but it didn't. The feelings I have for just got stronger and stronger. And now my feelings are fucking up my life." he explained.

"So, I'm not the only one who discovered new feelings after you got shot." Motoko sadly and quietly said. Now Togusa was the one that was surpised.

"Major, are you saying you love me?" Togusa asked. The Major just nodded her head. Togusa got up and slowly approched her. He leaned in to kiss her but she pulled away.

"Togusa, you know we can't do this. No matter how much we want to."

"I know but please, just this once. That's all I ask." After a few moments, Motoko gently pulled him close and lightly kissed him. A single tear was sliding down her cheek. Togusa lifted up a hand and wiped the tear away. After a few moments, they broke apart and Motoko quickly left the room without saying a word. Togusa felt his own tears and he swiftly wiped them away.

"I don't know when but I know there will be a day when you and I can be together." he said to himself as he left the room.

My first completed story. Feels good. I know I left it hanging but thats how I roll. There might be a sequel, you never know.
