Thoughts 'blah'

Speaking "blah"

Scene change

"Kuro-pyon! Wait for me!" A child's bell like voice rang out.

'Kuro-pyon', more commonly known as Kurogane turned to glare at his ridiculously loud companion.

"IT'S KUROGANE! DAMNIT GET IT RIGHT YOU BASTARD!" he hollered while glaring at the idiot blonde currently running towards him.

"Wahh! Kuro-chi said a bad word!" The blonde teased in a singsong voice with an innocent smile on his face...'Too innocent' Kurogane thought.

Now keep in mind that Kurogane had been friends with the 'blonde idiot', a.k.a. Fai, since before he cared to remember. So it could safely be concluded that he knew his moronic friend better than he knew himself.

And true to his intuition, Fai hopped on his back with ease upon reaching him. Kurogane grunted as his small frame buckled slightly with the larger boy's added weight. "Huu huu, Kuro-bun's getting so strong!" Fai cheered happily as Kurogane's arms hooked under the crook of his knees to support his weight.

"Shut-up or get off before I drop you." Kurogane's prepubescent voice growled out turning his head slightly to hide his more than noticeable blush.

When Fai first started jumping on Kurogane the younger boy would always end up with his face in the dirt growling and yelling for the 'Idiot loud-mouth' to get off of him. Of course Fai always found a way rub it in his face that he was in fact a whole two years older (and bigger) than Kurogane before running away laughing from a furious red-eyed demon child.

That was when they were five and seven, that was three years ago. Now that they were growing older Kurogane's height was starting to catch up with his older friends. His small muscles were only just beginning to develop from hours of kendo and martial arts lessons too.

Kurogane found himself slowly growing used to his friend's crazy antics and even coming to welcome them. The crazy blonde was like a leech that never left his side. You could only imagine his annoyance when he started sleeping over at the brunet's house. And to top things off the sugar-filled blonde started calling his parents 'Mom and Dad.' At first he had been mad, hell any kid would be, Fai was trying to steal his parents for crying out loud! It didn't help that his parents thought he was adorable enough to encourage him by calling him 'son'. He really couldn't say that he minded afterwards though. He found out later that Fai had no real parents; he suddenly understood why he wanted to be part of his family so badly.

After three years of being driven insane by a wacko that went by the name of Fai, it was perfectly understandable where his small minuscule crush came from, right? It really wasn't that big of a deal, right? Well it wouldn't have been if that was all it simply was. His mother was the one to call it out for what it really was.

"My little boy is in love! Aww he's growing up so fast! Isn't puppy love adorable?" she gushed while crushing the boy in a bone-breaking hug. His father just grinned and ruffled his hair telling him they'll have 'the talk' later, whatever the heck that was...

He walked around that particular day lookin' like a cherry and sputtering words of denial to everyone that even looked at him funny. Sadly no matter how much he denied it he found himself slowly noticing anything and everything about Fai. And to his horror he found he could no longer deny the accusations...he was in love with his loud eccentric moronic blonde friend. Though, he'd rather down a cup of sugar than admit that out loud.

Fai sighed dreamily from his perch on Kurogane's back as they passed by the market place they had to go though to reach home from school.

"Kuro-rin isn't he handsome?" came the airy question. It sounded like it belonged more to a love struck girl than any self respecting boy.

Kurogane scowled at the poster Fai was making goo-goo eyes at. That was the reason he would never admit his feelings out loud. Teen-movie sensation Ashura stared back at him with that empty smile of his.

"There's nothing special about him at all, he's a fake. I don't see why you're so obsessed with him," he huffed.

"Your just jealous Kuro-pipi!" Fai laughed.

"Of what you moron?!"

"Language mister potty mouth, and there is plenty to be jealous of. He's older than you..."

" seven years!..."

"...and look how tall he is..."

"...he's only 5'7!..."

"...and how long and silky his hair is..."

"'s girly looking..."

" smooth and pale his skin looks..."

" makes him look like the undead..."

"...and how deep his voice sounds..."

Kurogane felt his right eye twitch uncontrollably as he was so blandly being ignored.

"You're insane, what's he got that I don't?" he muttered completely ignoring the list Fai spouted off for him.

Fai stopped rambling almost immediately. His eyes went comically wide as saucers, "You like me Kuro-peeko?"

Kurogane almost on cue turned red and promptly dropped Fai.

"Absolutely not! W-who would l-like such a nut-job like y-you?

Fai gave him a sad diminutive smile. "I'm sorry Kuro-pii but you're just not him."

That did it for sure; he clenched his tiny fist, turned around in a huff, and ran for all he was worth.

"Kuro-tan, wait!" Fai was hot on his tale, so he ran harder and faster. His lungs burnt but he dare not stop as he ran straight through the market place and into a small clearing.

"Wait!" Fai shouted again as he tackled Kurogane to the floor.

"Get off me!" he hollered.

"If he's so damn special, go cling to him instead!" Red eyes glared into endless blue.

"I am," Fai whispered.

He hadn't meant for that to come out but it had, he'd been so mad that he let his anger take a hold of him and now he regretted it, oh how he had regretted it.

Kurogane stared at him with wide disbelieving eyes. "What?"

"I want to be with him, so I need to become famous for him to want me. I can't do that here Kuro-chan...So I need to leave." Fai refused to meet his eyes.

"You don't need to go anywhere! Didn't I tell you already? I'll protect you from everything! So you don't need to go anywhere, isn't that enough? ..."

"I'm sorry but it's not love, it isn't enou.."

"...BUT I LOVE YOU!" His cry was desperate with the need for Fai to understand him.

Fai had that deer caught in the headlights look again. He slowly relaxed and leaned forward, placing a chaste kiss to the soft trembling lips below him.

"I love you too Kuro-chan but not in the way you need to be loved... I'll miss you and I'll always remember you, I promise. Good-bye," with a tight hug Fai turned to leave. Kurogane quickly grabbed hold of him and cried out, "WAIT!" That seemed to be the word of the day he thought mirthlessly.

Without another word he reached around his neck and unclasped a handmade black corded necklace with an intricate snake like dragon pendant dangling precariously about. Fai watched him, he was about to protest when a small trembling hand placed itself on his mouth. The younger boy wordlessly clasped it around Fai's neck, kissing the pendant like his parents had done countless times before.

"It'll protect you till I find you again," it was a simple promise, a simple childish unrealistic promise.

Fai could only nod and offer another small smile before he departed, leaving a heartbroken eight year old lying on the ground doing a damn good job at holding in his tears.

The next day Kurogane woke up only to hear the news of Fai's foster family moving. Fai had already left his parting gifts with their Mom and Dad.

"I'll make myself into someone you can love. Someone you won't have to hide from!" Kurogane stared at his reflection with fiery conviction in his eyes.

-12 years later –

The crowd was massive, it was filled with people ranging from teenage hormone ridden girls to, domestic house wives, to guys who both envied and worshiped the new singing pop sensation. Their collective shouts were almost ear-shattering. The concert was sold out in record breaking time and the singer responsible for such an uproar shamelessly sauntered back onstage.


A deafening cry was his response


An even louder ear splintering cry answered him back this time.


Fai's ear splitting grin caused the crowd to go wild.

"Tonight I have something new for you all! It's an English song I've been working on, and since you've been so amazing for me tonight, I happily give you the debut for my new single, 'I WANT YOU'!

The crowd quieted just enough to here the beginning of the song.

The drums opened up the intro of the song leading it into an upbeat catchy tune. Fai stood bouncing, rocking, and moving sharply yet gracefully to the beat. He raised his hand and took a deep breath.

"Anytime I need to see your face I just close my eyes
And I am taken to a place
Where your crystal minds and magenta feelings
Take up shelter in the base of my spine
Sweet like a chica cherry cola
I don't need to try to explain
I just hold on tight and If it happens again
I may move so slightly to the arms
And the lips and the face
Of The Human Cannonball that
I need to I want to...

Come stand a little bit closer
Breathe in and get a bit higher
You'll never know what hit you when
I get to you"

He took a quick breath as the Chorus joined him. His eyes were half lidded in a seductive manner as his lips formed a sinful smile.

"Ooh I want you, I don't know if I need you but
Ooh I'd die to find out
Ooh I want you, I don't know if I need you but
Ooh I'd die to find out"

He sucked in another deep breath and sang as sensual as he could.

"I'm the kind of person who endorses a deep commitment
Getting comfy getting perfect is what I live for
But a look and then a smell of perfume
It's like I'm down on the floor
And I Don't know what I'm in for
Conversation has a time and place in the interaction
Of a lover and a mate but the time of talking
Using symbols, using words can be likened
To a deep sea diver who is swimming with a raincoat

Come stand a little bit closer
Breathe in and get a bit higher
You'll never know what hit you when
I get to you"

He winked at the crowd, before beginning again.

"Ooh I want you, I don't know if I need you but
Ooh I'd die to find out
Ooh I want you, I don't know if I need you but
Ooh I'd die to find out"

A single hand was gracefully stretched out as a delicate finger beckoned and enticed the crowd further as if calling them to him.

"Ooh, ahh...
Ooh, ahh...

Anytime I need to see your face I just close my eyes
And I am taken to a place
Where your crystal minds and magenta feelings
Take up shelter in the base of my spine
Sweet like a chica cherry cola
I don't need to try to explain
I just hold on tight and If it happens again
I may move so slightly to the arms
And the lips and the face
Of The Human Cannonball that
I need to I want to...

Ooh I want you, I don't know if I need you but
Ooh I'd die to find out
Ooh I want you, I don't know if I need you but
Ooh I'd die to find out"

He tilted the mike-stand forward and gazed at everyone through his wispy bangs. The girls that were screaming were in tears now as they desperately tried to reach out and grab their idle.

"Ooh I want you, I don't know if I need you but
Ooh I'd die to find out
Ooh I want you, I don't know if I need you but
Ooh I'd die to find out"

"Ooh I want you, I don't know if I need you but
Ooh I'd die to find out
Ooh I want you, I don't know if I need you but
Ooh I'd die to find out"

As the song fade off Fai's dancing slowly came to a standstill.

The response to the song alone was more than enough to let the producers know that the song was more than well received.

As Fai allowed himself a breather the stagehand brought him out a stool, a bottle of water, and a manila envelope.

"I'm very sorry guys but that seems to be the end of our time together." He allowed a few moments for the crowds disapproval before continuing.

"However, I'm sure you're all wondering who the lucky winner for the 'Fly Lyrics' contest will be!"

The throng of people erupted once more before falling into a hushed silence.

"Now, the rules were simple, you had to write the lyrics to a completely original song that will of course by sung by me, and if by chance you have a knack for singing, you'll be recording with me." Fai winked at the mass again but didn't give them much time to react.

"Thousands of entrees were submitted but there can only be one winner. And the secret prize will be announced as well."

He slowly opened the manila envelope just for suspense and pulled out the paper within. As his blue eyes darted back and forth over the article the audience waited in baited breath. Fai's eyes widened slightly before he turned back to the crowd with his ever-present smile.

"And the winner is (drum-role)..."

"...Kurogane Suwa!"

"His secret prize is to go on a one month long tour with me. So if you're in the Audience Kurogane Suwa please come back stage. Well it's time to wrap this up now, you've been a great audience and I hope to see you in my next concert, GOOD NIGHT EVERYONE AND I LOVE YOU ALL!" With a sweeping bow only a prince would be capable of Fai left the stage.

"Why wasn't I informed of this earlier?!" Fai was mad. That didn't happen often but when it did he was terrifying.

"I'm sorry Fai-san but it was a last minute change. The producers thought it would be an interesting twist."

"B-but I have to see Ashura during this trip, what is he going to say about this, Syaoran-kun?" Fai's anger was over before it even started and he was reduced to whining to his manager. The youngest manger in the business mind you, Syaoran was a genius that flew threw school and could handle any situation with a level head. It made him the ideal choice hands down.

"I really am sorry there was nothing that I could do, I tried Fai-san." Syaoran really did feel sorry for the man before him. His supposed 'boyfriend' was a bastard in gentlemen's clothing, and the only ones who had the pleasure of seeing that were the ones closest to Fai. What Syaoran saw made him dislike the man instantly, which was a feat in itself.

Just than, a large hooded figure walked into the room bearing a yellow pass around his neck. Well they assumed it was a man, a woman being that large was just plain scary. He stood at a Height of about 6'5 - 6'6, his massive frame towering over both of the present males. Fai took in his appearance and did his best to keep his smile plastered on his face where it ought to be. His tall bulgy frame was donned in baggy sweats, and that was all that could be seen.

Fai groaned inwardly, 'He's tall and fat and probably balding. Jeez how old is this guy 47? 50? How am I supposed to explain him to Ashura? He hates company!'

Now don't get him wrong, Fai normally did not discriminate against a fan but he was panicking at the idea of have to introduce this particular one to his love interest. Ashura only liked beautiful things and this guy seemed to be severely lacking in that department.

"Ah, you must be the contest winner, um..." Syaoran greeted him enthusiastically before trailing off.

"...Kurogane," Was the stranger's gruff reply.

Fai felt something nagging at his brain with that response. "Have we met before? What did you say your last name was?" His face took on an innocently curious expression.

"Suwa, and I don't see how we could have possibly have met."

Fai felt a little disappointed at the last name and for the life of him he couldn't figure out why.

"I guess you're right mister grumpy pants, but you should really lighten up or you'll scare all the little kids away!" Fai went from curious to melodramatic in 1.3 seconds.

"WHAT DID YOU CALL ME?!" Kurogane roared.

"WAH, Kowai!" Fai jumped behind Syaoran and hid peeking out slowly as if expecting the man to attack him. He smiled but a wicked glint crept into his eyes.

"Syaoran, what a mean puppy we've got, what if Kuro-woof's not house broken yet?" Syaoran stood there dumbly blinking back and forth between the two, looking like an owl.

"Umm..." was his genius reply.

"It's Kurogane not 'Kuro- woof," the man growled out.

It felt familiar yet foreign. Fai decided that he rather liked teasing the old man.

"Hey Kuroi-san, why don't you take off your hood? You look like the bad guy, or the villain, or even one of the creepy old men who like to molest little girls in the story books. You'll scare all of the fans away." Fai offered ever so cheerfully.

"For the last time, it's KU-RO-GA-Ne not 'Kuroi-san' or Kuro-woof'. And no thank you the hood suits me just fine! I don't give a damn if I scare all your fans away. "

"Hidoi! How mean, oh well you should pack Kuro-chuu. We're going for a month long tour and we need to record your new song too."


Little did Kurogane know that that was only the beginning of his hellish month with the demon-incarnate himself, Fai.

Well what do you think? Good? Or Bad? Please review! And if I get enough reviews then I may feel inclined to update later on today. I'm back from my vacation and I corrected the spelling in this chapter. Nothing to reread if you've read it before but I hope I didn't miss anything.
