Chapter Two: Broken Promise

The next couple of weeks went by in a blur, I had to work, and Yuu was reuniting with everyone. Sadly, the day he was planning on leaving was coming closer, and I couldn't stand it. I didn't want to be parted from him. I wanted to go with him, but I couldn't, I still had school. My senior year then we could be together, for the rest of our lives. I couldn't wait.

I had talked to my boss and got the rest of the week off before Yuu had to go back to New York, this way we could go on a trip, I would like a trip just the two of us.

"Yuu, can I ask you a question?" I asked him, while we were lying on my bed cuddling.

"Mmhmm," he said nuzzling my neck.

"Can we go on another trip? I got the rest of this week off, and you leave the week after next. So do you want to go?" I asked him as I turned to face him.

"Hmm, let me think; me and you, spending a couple of days alone with you. All alone, you and me, I'm not sure," he said playfully as he kissed my nose. I smiled at him I was happy.

"We'll ask when they get home, okay," I said as I snuggled even closer to him.

"Another trip!" they all exclaimed.

"Yes, another one. We just want to have a better farewell this time. Since last time everyone canceled," I told our parents.

"Alright, where did you guys want to go?' Rumi-mama asked us, as the others nodded and perked up a little.

Yuu told them of where it was that we wanted to go and I waited patiently as I waited for them to answer our question. I was playing with my hands nervously behind my back.

"Alright, but be back with the day before you have to leave, we want to spend time with you as well Yuu," Chiyako-mama said.

"Alright, we'll do that," I said with a smile, Yuu nodded with me as we walked back upstairs. I waited until we were in my room before I shrieked with joy.

"Yuu, another trip, I'm so excited," I said as I fell on my bed looking up at him.

Yuu walked over to my bed and knelt beside it, I scooted over toward the wall so he could lie down next to me, and he just smiled.

"Come on," I said patting the bed next to me smiling. He just nodded his head no, and I scooted closer to him. I stared into his eyes, trying so hard to figure out what was wrong.

"Yuu, you're scaring me, please tell me what's on you mind," I begged him.

"You are, I love you more than anything, nothing can change that, nothing," he told me as he put his head on my neck.

"Oh, Yuu, I love you too. Nothing will come between the love we have for each other. I'll love until the end of my life," I told him lifting his head from my neck and kissing him. He kissed me back and slowly pulled his head away.

I looked at him, and he pulled me up so I was standing in front of him. He pulled me close to him.

"Yuu, you're scaring me, why are you acting like this?" I asked him.

He didn't answer me he just lifted me up and placed me on my bed, and laid on top of me, I smiled and pulled him closer to me. I knew this was risky and that our parents could come upstairs at any moment, but I didn't care, what was the worse that could happen?

"Miki, I love you, but not now," he whispered to me.

"I know, but I love it when you're this close to me. I feel safe, as if nothing could happen to me, if I were to die, I would be happy, because you are the last thing I would see," I said as I pulled his head closer and kissed him again. I tried so hard to keep his body close to mine. But Yuu is stronger than me, and broke my sad attempt at a hold, and looked down at me.

"In a short time now, just a short time," he said as he kissed my forehead and left me in my room gasping for breath.

"I really hate when you do that!" I whispered to him, but knew he wouldn't hear it. It was times like these that I wished Michael had gone home, that way I could stay in Yuu's room.

"I should start packing! We're leaving the day after tomorrow," I said to myself as I got out of my bed, still panting, and a little too excited.

All I know is that what happened next broke me. I don't know what Yuu found, or what Yuu was told, but all I know, is that we never had that trip.

Yuu had gone to Satoshi's house to spend the day before our big trip, I had to work, and after work I was going to buy Yuu a late birthday present, he needed a new watch, I was going to get him one. After spending ten minutes debating on a watch that cost half of my vacation spending money I bought it. My Yuu only deserves the best—when of course I can afford it—so I got it.

We were to meet at the park, I walked there present in my purse, and a smile on my face. I couldn't control myself; I don't know why I missed him so much I was only gone for an hour and a half. Oh well, love is love, not easy not something to be defined. Once the park was in sight I ran a little…sprinted actually. I saw Yuu sitting near a bench, and ran even faster.

"Yuu!" I called to him waving. I finally got to the bench and caught my breath.

"Miki," he whispered his voice full of pain. My face froze, I knew he could read my emotions, I didn't like the way his voice sounded.

I don't remember much of what happened, all I know is that he broke up with me, after he promised to love me forever, and canceled our trip. He said he 'couldn't love me anymore'. When I heard those words, my life shattered into a million pieces, I don't remember how I got home. I'm surprised I even got home. Life is full of surprises, and full of disappointment. I wish I could say that I was expecting this, but after everything that we've been through, I thought for sure this time, we would last.
