Chapter One

Uhmm. Let's see. Well. As I am working on getting chapters up for my other fic "Forgive & Forget", I decided to write another one. As you might now by know, if you've read some of my other fics, I write my story down on paper before I put it up. This time I am not writing the whole thing first, but I'm writing it little by little and putting each chapter up as I finish it. So I'm sorry if you've been waiting for updates on my other story because I just haven't been able to get to it lately because of school and basketball practice and everything. Not that any of you have been waiting for updates because I don't have a ton of readers, but I'm just saying that.

This is a Tai & Sora Friendship/Romance/Adventure.

Okay enough of my pointless blabbering. Read! Read! Read!


As the gang of five walked out of the pizza parlor it began to pour. "I better get home before my allergies start to act up!" Joe yelled as he ran home to his apartment with a newspaper held above his head.

"See ya Joe!" Izzy called after him. "I better go home to. My parents are expecting me soon." He ran off as well.

"I'm outta here." Matt said. "Catch you two later!" That left Tai and Sora standing in the rain.

"Aren't you in a rush too?" Tai asked her.

"No. I'm going to hang out here for a while." Sora answered softly.

"In the middle of the rain? You'll get soaked." Tai stated.

"I don't care. I love the rain. It makes me feel like there's nothing to worry about." She explained.

"You mean like the rain washes all of your fears away?" Tai wondered.

"Exactly." Sora replied. She put her arms out to the sides and spun around, letting herself get drenched in rain. He smiled as he watched her spin in circles. "You don't have to stay you know."

"No, that's all right. I want to know what this "Carefree" sensation feels like." He told her.

"Okay then." Sora said. Tai stood there with his arms crossed. "Taichi…you've got to let loose." She walked over to him and uncrossed his arms. "Hold out your arms like this." She adjusted his arms, so that they had been like hers were before. "Now just close your eyes, clear your mind, and loose yourself in the rain."

Tai did as he was instructed. They danced around in the rain until they got too dizzy to stand. "Wow. You were right. I feel totally relaxed and soaked."

Sora laughed. "Told you." "The rain makes everything seem so perfect."

"Yeah, it does." Tai agreed without softly. Without thinking, he clutched Sora's hands in his own and held them gently in his own. Then he started to lean in until their lips met. They stood there in the rain lost in each other until the thunder roared and the two jumped back as if the thunder had just broken some sort of trance.

They blushed and dropped their hands to their sides. "I better go." Sora said shakily.

"Yeah. Me too. I don't want to get struck by lightning." Tai mumbled. He ran off in one direction, while Sora ran in the other. 'Nice excuse Tai. You're such an idiot.' He told himself as he ran off. He had a feeling that nothing would be the same anymore and he was right.

So that is the first chapter. Review puhlease as I am working on the next chapter. Your opinions are very important to me.
