"Mimi what's wrong?" Matt asked softly
"It's all my fault what happened, ad you
wouldn't have got hurt if it weren't for me!" She cried
"Mimi I was already hurt before I helped you,
and this is not your fault all you did was get lost, you didn't ask that jerk
to assault you did you?"
"Didn't we ask that question already?" Mimi
asked through a fresh bout of tear,
"Yeah, yeah we did." Matt agreed.
"Matt why were you hurt already?" Mimi asked
"I er, broke up with Sora." Matt told her,
twisting his hands in his lap nervously.
"You broke up with her?" She asked, "Why?"
"We just weren't right anymore." He
"Well then you did the right thing." Ashe
"Of course, what's the point in hurting both
of you, if you didn't love her, it'd hurt her more in the end, it's good you
"I don't know if we're still friends though…"
Matt trailed off
"Oh Matt you know Sora, friends mean more to
her, than anything, and anyway mow she can try it with Tai." Mimi finished
"Oh that's why, you're being so
understanding" Matt grinned suddenly seeing the light.
"So there wasn't anyone else?" She asked
"Mimi! What do you take me for? I don't cheat
on my girlfriends!"
Mimi laughed and reassured, "I know Matt I
know I'm kidding.
"Oh yeah? Well we'll see!" He laughed, Mimi
shrieked, as he picked up a pillow, picking her own up, she thwapped him round
the head, by the end of their pillow fight they were both exhausted, Mimi
sighed and rolled over from her place on the floor next to Matt.
"Thank-you Matt." She said simply
"What for?" he asked
"Being my knight in shining armour."
"Sure, you saved me."
"I had to Mimi."
Matt leaned forward and pushed a strand of
hair off of her face, and kissed her, he didn't know why, just that it felt right
Mimi asked when he drew back.
"I'm sorry Mimi I shouldn't have…" Matt
started as he stood up and started to walk away, he felt a hand on his arm and
turned Mimi was behind him, "Sorry for what?" She asked, pressing her lips to
his, softly, her arms stole up around his neck as his arms fastened around her
Watching her sleep Matt remembered her final
words before she fell asleep, "Don't leave me Matt I'm still scared
"I won't leave you Mimi-Chan." He whispered softly, "Not
Not exactly a fairytale meeting huh? Well,
there's sincerity at the base of every friendship, and hopefully, friendship at
the base of a good relationship Matt thought lying down next to her,
holding her tight, he smiled as he felt Mimi respond and pull closer to him.
Just because it didn't start a fairytale, doesn't
mean it can't be a fairytale Was Matt's final blissful thought before
following Mimi to sleep.
