If I Let You Go

Song: If I let you go by Westlife

"Heehee" Ichigo giggled as she stepped into Café Mew Mew. "Why are you so happy today, Ichigo?" Retasu asked. "Oh, nothing…" Ichigo said as she couldn't help but let out another giggle. "Did he ask you out again?" asked Mint. Retasu and Purin immediately crowded around Ichigo. She sweat dropped, "Y…yes."

From the second storey of the Café, a blue-eyed blonde heard every word.

Day after day

Time passed away

And I just can't get you off my mind

"Why can't I just stop thinking about her? She has a boyfriend after all," Ryou Shirogane sighed as he reached for the bottle on his bedside table and took a gulp from it.

Nobody knows

I hide it inside

I keep on searching but I can't find

The courage to show to letting you know

I've never felt so much love before

Later in the evening, Ryou watched from his room as Ichigo happily walked to her boyfriend, Aoyama, who was waiting for her at the entrance. "What is it about her that makes me feel this way?" He ran his hand through his hair. "Why can't I just forget about her?"

And once again I'm thinking about

Taking the easy way out

But if I let you go

I will never know

What my life would be holding you close to me

Ryou smiled a small smile as he remembered the times he had saved Ichigo from the fat cat, Francis as Alto, his cat form. She still hadn't found out about it yet. His cheeks tinged pink as he remembered the kisses he gave her as a cat to help her revert to her human form.

Night after night

I hear myself say

Why can't this feeling just fade away

There's no one like you

You speak to my heart

It's such a shame

We're worlds apart

He sighed as he remembered the dance they had together on his cruise ship. She had been so tense and nervous at first. But I told her to relax and we were dancing gracefully around the ballroom.He held on tightly to her ashe secretly wished that time would just stop then. However, she pushedhim away suddenly when the music ended and strode briskly away to the balcony.

I'm too shy to ask

I'm too proud to lose

But sooner or later

I gotta choose

And once again I'm thinking about

Taking the easy way out

But if I let you go

I will never know

What my life would be holding you close to me

Will I ever see

You smiling back at me

How will I know

If I let you go

The song finally came to an end. Ryou switched off the radio as he lay down on his bed and drifted off to sleep.
