True to Your Heart

"Tohru?! Can I talk to you?!" Kyo yelled down the hall from his room. Ever since he read Tohru's diary, talking, or even yelling to her, was almost impossible and couldn't be done without blushing.

"Yes?! Kyo-kun?! Sure, I can talk!" she responded, and he heard the pitter-patter of her feet on the ground. She reached his room and stood in the doorway. He looked up at her and she gave him a small smile.

"Uh... um... can you come sit down?"

" Oh... sure," she came and sat next to him on the bed, causing the cat's blood to boil. She smelled sweet, like strawberries when you first pick them. The scent made him light-headed.

He wasn't like himself, and he knew it. Whenever did he get butterflies? Never. There was something definitely wrong with him. She is probably gonna be pissed that I looked at her diary. Wait, she never gets pissed, and I'll never tell her I looked! But that stupid dog might have told her I was snooping in her room! After thinking this, he tried to speak. But all that came out were coughing fits.

"Kyo-kun! Are you okay?!" she said, her face molded with a look of worry.

"Yeah, KOFF! KOFF! I'm good,"

"Do you need water or anything?"

"No... I'm fine. Anyway, did Shigure talk to you recently about me, or anything I did out of the ordinary?"

She thought for a bit, then said,"Uh... he did notice you being uneasy for a while and not speaking much. I noticed too. Are you sick? Is there something you need to tell me? Because you know, you can al-"

" TOHRU-KUN! Can you make dinner early tonight?! I need food to get me through this manuscript!" they heard Shigure yelling from the doorway of his office.

" Hai, Shigure-san! I will get on it right away! Just one minute!" she yelled back, while Kyo grumbled to himself, You stupid dog! You always ruin the right moments!

" Anyway, what were we talking about Kyo-kun?" Tohru asked, quieter.

" Oh, make dinner first, this will take more than one minute. Plus I'm starving," he said, and Tohru heard his stomach grumble loudly, and she giggled.

"Okay, what do you want for dinner Kyo-kun?"

" How about... riceballs?" he said with a small grin.

Tohru blushed, making him blush. "Okay!" and she scampered out of the room.

oOo After Dinner oOo

When everyone left the table, Kyo went up on the roof. He was tired of hiding his feelings. He would tell her tonight. He would reveil is true feelings, tonight. He put his face in his hands in deep thought. How should I say this? Just a normal 'I love you', or should I make it sincere? Then he felt a tap on his shoulder.

"Kyo-kun? Are you alright?"

He flinched and jumped backwards. It was Tohru. She was looking at Kyo with worry.

"Yeah, I'm...I'm fine," and he put his face in his hands with pure embarrassment.

Tohru had tried to stand her distance from Kyo's problem, but she could no longer stand it. "Kyo-kun, I know that something is troubling you. You can tell me. There have been times when you listened to my complaints, now I want to listen to yours,"

She touched his hand gently. He flinched at first, but then relaxed and took her hand. Now. NOW, YOU FOOL! His head was shouting at him. This time, he would obey. "Tohru, there has been something I've been wanting to say to you for a while now. I was scared at first to tell you but, I... I..."he was trying to finish the end of his sentence, but it was hard to do quietly. He didn't know why, but tears were building up in his eyes. He then shouted,

" I... I LOVE YOU!" then all you could here was the chirping of crickets and the croaking of the frogs. Tohru's face was as red as a beet, and a tear was rolling down Kyo's cheek.

"You...love...me?!" she said flabbergastingly smiling. She was also crying.

"Do you not love me?" he said.

"If you believe that, you are sadly mistaken. I love you Kyo-kun, more than you know. And it's okay to be afraid for showing it Kyo-kun. We all have to learn to interact," he then caressed her cheek and wiped away her tears with his thumb.

"Oh Tohru, I was so glad to finally tell you. We may have been afraid to tell each other in the beginning, but everyone has to be True to their hearts at one point. I'm glad I shared my special moment with you Tohru. You are my everything."

Then he gently pressed his lips against hers. She was stiff for a moment, then relaxed into the kiss. They relished that moment, not caring about anyone or anything else in the world. They only broke for air. Then they gazed into each others eyes, and smiled. Not from embarassment, but from love.

Baby I knew at once
That you were meant for me
Deep in my soul I know
That I'm your destiny
Though you're unsure
Why fight the tide
Don't think so much
Let your heart decide

Baby I see your future
And it's tied to mine
I look in your eyes
And see you searching for a sign
But you'll never fall
'Til you let go
Don't be so scared
Of what you don't know

True to your heart
You must be true to your heart
That's when the heavens will part
And baby shower you with my love
Open your eyes
Your heart can tell you no lies
And when you're true to your heart
I know it's gonna lead you straight to
me
(Got to be true to your heart)

Someone you know is on your side
Can set you free
I can do that for you

If you believe in me
Why second-guess
What feels so right
Just trust your heart
And you'll see the light

True to your heart
You must be true to your heart
That's when the heavens will part
And baby shower you with my love
Open your eyes
Your heart can tell you no lies
And when you're true to your heart
I know it's gonna lead you straight to
me
(Got to be true to your heart)

(Ya know it's true)
Your heart knows what's good for you
(Good for you)
Let your heart show you the way
(Ya know it's true)
It'll see you through
(Got to be true to your heart)

Girl my heart is driving me to where you
are
You can take both hands off the wheel
and
Still get far

Be swept away enjoy the ride
You won't get lost
With your heart to guide you

True to your heart
You must be true to your heart
That's when the heavens will part
And baby shower you with my love
Open your eyes
Your heart can tell you no lies
And when you're true to your heart
I know it's gonna lead you straight to
me
(Got to be true to your heart)

When things are getting crazy
And you don't know where to start
Keep on believing baby
Just be true to your heart
When all the world around you
It seems to fall apart
Keep on believing baby
Just be true to your heart


So, how was that? It sounded romantic in my head, but how was it in the story? Remember, I DO NOT own Fruits Basket or this song. Please review!
