A/N: LOL looks like I'm updating sooner than I planned. Well, it's cause a certain someone told me that Ronald would break into my house unless I decided to update (You know who you are. XD) so, yeah, here I am with an update : ) Enjoy! And starting from here, this is where the DS fluff begins! YAY DS! Oh, and, one big thank you to ChazzyLuverGurl (same girl who told me Ronald would break into my house unless I updated) for telling me what language Te Amo was from. (and for Mystical Aquafina too!)
Disclaimer: I do not own Yu-Gi-Oh GX. TAKE THAT, LAYWERS!

"If we were neighbors all this time, how come Atticus and I never saw you?" I asked, still a bit shocked by the fact that Jesse and I were neighbors.
"Well... my mom was kinda uncomfortable when we first moved in, and she guessed you guys were uhh...y'know... punks." he explained, scratching the back of his head.
"...Oh, I see. Well, my parents aren't very 'punkish' at all. In fact, most of the time they're never home." I said with a frown.
"Oh...sorry 'bout that, Lex. I'll come visit ya whenever I can, okay? It's a promise!" Jesse promised me with a smile.
"...Thanks, Jess.. well, the two of them aren't home right now, so I guess we could just go inside for now. I know where the extra house key is. C'mon."
I guided him to the front door step, where a mat saying "Welcome to our home" was placed on top of the rough grey cement. Underneath it was a small lump, which was the spare house key. I kneeled down and lifted the mat up, pulling out the rusty silver key from underneath it.
"Got it." I said as soon as I stood back up. Carefully, I placed the key into the keyhole and twisted it, hearing a small 'click!' from outside. I quickly pulled the key out of the keyhole and put it in my pocket, while my spare hand reached for the knob. I opened the door, revealing a simple modern living room. A large tan couch sat in the left half of the room, facing a large tv-screen that was in the wall. In the right half, my mother's expensive wooden table sat, accompanied by 6 chairs, two on the ends and two on each side.
"Well, come on in. Make yourself at home." I told him with a small smile. Jesse's eyes traveled around the room, eventually landing on my face.
"You've got a really nice house, Lex!" he complimented, running over to the tan couch and jumping onto it. "Not to mention nice furniture, too!"
"Thanks.. do you want anything to eat?" I asked.
"Uhh... got any Rocky Road ice cream?"
"I'll take two scoops of that in a bowl."
"Alright. One sec."
I walked through the living room and into the kitchen, which was connected to the living room, and immediately ran to the cupboards. Opening one of it's doors, I pulled out a small and simple white bowl and closed it shut, grabbing a spare spoon that was laying on the counter. I set the bowl down with the spoon and walked over to the refridgerator, which sat against the wall in a far corner of the room. I opened the door to my left, revealing the icebox along with many of my brother's favorite seafood meals. And at the very bottom shelf sat the Rocky Road ice cream container, which read "Property of Atty. Don't touch, sissy!" on the plastic.
'You can't claim all of this ice cream for yourself, Atticus..' I thought as I reached for the container.
"DON'T GIVE UP ON JOHN, ALEXANDRA! HE LOVES YOU!"
Oh god... was Jesse watching one of those southern romance movies that my brother always likest to record? I hope not.. because Atticus claims that those movies are VERY addicting to the male mind. But I'll worry about that later.
"ALEXANDRA! NOOOOOOO! YOU IDIOT! DON'T TURN HIM DOWN!"
'Just ignore him, Lex...' I thought, picking up the container and closing the refridgerator door. I stood up and walked over to where the bowl and spoon sat, waiting to be filled with ice cream. I removed the container top, grabbed the spoon, and shoveled large amounts of ice cream into the bowl until it was full. I stuck the spoon into one of the lumps of ice cream and walked over to the trashcan, tossing the empty container inside. I walked back over to the counter and picked up the bowl before walking back into the living room. Jesse's eyes were glued to the TV screen, and he didn't show any signs of leaving this position.
"Jesse, I've got your ice cream." I said, hoping to snap him out of his daze. No answer.
"Jesse, ice cream alert."
Still no response.
"...Jesse, c'mon, seriously, snap out of it."
"Alright then. If that's how your gonna play, then fine."
I walked over to the couch and sat down next to Jesse, his eyes still glued to the TV screen. I looked at the screen, wondering what was so great.
'Alex, I know we've known each other for only a day, but please understand, I'm in love with you!' a boy wearing punkish looking clothes said to a much more different looking girl. She looked like your everyday good girl, with her blue skirt and white shirt, her long blonde hair flowing behind her.
'I love you too, but our ranks in society are different! You're considered a reject by everyone, and I'm like the queen of this city! We can't be together!' the girl replied, with tears in her eyes.
The two of them kissed, despite the screaming crowd. Eventually, they calmed down, and watched as the shunned couple continued to kiss.
I looked at Jesse, who was practically teary eyed by now.
"Jesse, c'mon, snap out of it. The movie is over." I told him, lightly shaking his arm.
"...Don't Alex and John remind ya of someone?" he asked, ignoring my previous statement.
"No, not really..." I answered. "Why?"
"Oh, no reason.."
What's up with the suspicious act?
"Hey, if you don't mind me asking... what's up with the suspiciousness?" I asked, hoping for an answer.
"I told ya, it was nothin'.. that movie just kinda got to my brain and made me question some weird stuff, that's all." Jesse answered, his eyes still not leaving the TV as the credits rolled along the screen.
And that's when my brother suddenly appeared on the wide-screen wearing a hawaiian shirt.
"Hey to whoever's watchin' this! Did it hypnotize you? Cause if it did... then it looks like this worked! And now that you've watched this, Alex and John will remain in your hearts forever! How romantic! And thanks to that, I bet you, the viewer, 10 dollars that something from this movie will end up happening to you one day this year! And thats all for now! Aloha! (1)"
"What was that all about?" Jesse asked, confused by the sudden message from my brother.
"He always does that after a romantic movie he recorded plays. Mom and Dad told him to stop, but he still hasn't." I explained.
"Well c'mon, honey. Let's get inside before we get rained on!"
"Oh no..my parents are home early!" I said, my eyes wide in horror. "If they know I escaped school with a boy, then I'm busted! Hurry upstairs!"
I jumped off of the couch and grabbed Jesse by the wrist, dragging him down the hallway to the staircase and up the stairs. I dragged him into my room, quietly shut the door, and locked it.
"I think we'll be safe for now..well, at least until Atticus finds out about me escaping and tells my mom and da--"
somehow... gonna make it allright but not right now.. I know you're
(You're the only one who knows that)
Someday, somehow... (2)
"That's weird, who could be calling me at this hour...?" I wondered, pulling my cell phone from my left pocket and flipping it open.
"Hey Lex. It's me, Jaden. What's up sweetie?"
"Uh...Jaden, look, we really need to talk."
"Ok, sure! About what?"
"Zane told me he saw you making-out with Tear Mikuru in Crowler's class.. is that true?"
There was a brief silence on the other line.
"Look, Lex, I..."
"Save it, Jaden. You love her, not me. And it's cool."
"Alexis...no...it's not that, I was just---"
I shut the cell phone and held it in my hand for just a moment more before tossing it into a far corner of the room out of pure anger and sadness.
"Whoa, take it easy, Lex!" Jesse advised, placing his hands on my shoulders.
"How can I take it easy when my now ex-boyfriend just practically admitted to making out with one of my good friends?! It's just so...so.."
There was a brief silence, before I could slowly feel my body come close to Jesse's, and I wasn't the one who was moving, either.
"Jesse...what are you---"
And it was in that moment that he embraced

A/N: I know, suckish..oh well. Anyway...
1.) I read somewhere that Aloha could mean either hello or goodbye, but in Atticus' case, he was saying goodbye.
2.) That song for her ringtone is Someday by Nickelback. Don't own that.
