Disclaimer: I do not own YuGiOh GX… just this story.
Hey everyone! It's danielie again, here again in my fourth story! (I only took a few days in between now that I think about it…) Anyway, time to start!
Edit (June 12, 2009): Thanks for taking the time to read my story!:) I've revised the format of the whole thing and made some minor changes. (I was sort of new at the time, sorry!)
Thanks guys! (sprinkles hearts) Enjoy!
"Alexis!" Jaden called. Alexis stopped walking and waited for him to catch up. "I've been meaning to ask you something," he panted. "Could you just give me a direct answer?"
Alexis' heart raced. Was this the moment she'd wanted to come for so long?
"Dr. Crowler punished me again, and I wanted to ask if you could help me with it."
She sighed. That moment would probably never come.
"What's the punishment?" she asked.
"I have to put some paper numbered from 1 to 300 in order before tomorrow morning."
"That's so like Dr. Crowler. Give him something stupid,"Alexis thought. "No problem."
"Excellent!" Jaden smiled. "I'll see you in the library after class, then?"
That smile! That silly, awkward smile! What was so special about it that made Alexis feel like she was in heaven? All she could do as nod, and watch Jaden run back to Syrus and Chumly.
Alexis tried to go quickly after class, but the Queen of Obelisk Blue never went unnoticed.
"Where are you going, Alexis?" her friends called. She pretended not to hear and ran, knowing how much they detested Jaden.
When she reached the library, she had to search for a few minutes before she found him sitting way in the back, a mountain of papers around him.
"You came," he smiled again. Alexis tried to hide it, but she knew she was blushing as she took the chair next to him.
"Alexis," he said after a long time. Her emotions went haywire when he said her name, and she stopped looking for page 60.
"Yes?" she answered awkwardly.
"I never called you here to organize this paper… I needed an excuse to talk to you."
"What?" her mouth dropped. Jaden saw the flustered expression on her face.
"I know it's stupid, but I just have to tell you!" his face went deep red. Alexis felt the knots in her stomach.
"I really like you. Not as a friend! As more than a friend. But not like a sister! I mean-!" he struggled to find the right words.
Alexis put her hand on Jaden's. "I love you, too."
Secretly, Alexis' heart was racing. The moment was here! She was lost in her own thoughts when Jaden put his hands on her shoulders, and slowly pulled her closer to him. She never made a single attempt to stop him, wanting that moment to last forever.
They were about to kiss, when Alexis heard someone whisper her name. She turned around to see a boy with dark blue hair standing a few feet away.
"Zane," Alexis whispered, but Zane did not reply. His face was emotionless as usual, and he simply looked at Alexis in Jaden's arms for a long time. He closed his eyes and shook his head disapprovingly. Then he turned and walked straight out of the library.
"Zane, wait!" Alexis got up quickly. Her long hair bounced against her back as she ran away.
"Jaden, I'm sorry! I need to talk to Zane for a minute!" she shouted as she ran out of the library.
Jaden was left in the library alone, at first sad, and then angry. His heart shouted "Damn you, Zane!" but his mind had a different idea- that Alexis loved Zane. He didn't want to believe that. But whether he wanted to or not, he still had 241 pages to put in order.
That's Chapter 1! One thing that I CAN say is that the story gets WAAAY better... romance central. Please review!
