A/N: Hey guys! This is Misao. Well, I haven't posted any HieixKurama in awhile and I wanted to reward all of you who reviewed with a new story :) Hint hint. Review if you want me to post more often. Just to let you know this is a ONESHOT and will not be continued. We keep getting people expecting more than there's going to be so I'm just letting you know now so you aren't disappointed.


I never expected things to turn out this way.

I never expected to lose my partner in crime.

I never expected to lose my first love.

I never expected to get a second chance.

I never expected to screw it up.

I never expected to fall from grace and I never expected to fall so far.

I never expected to find compassion at the hands of a mortal woman.

I never expected to return her feelings.

I never expected to find my home amongst those that tradition taught me to hate.

I never expected for a connection to my past life to show up at my door, or more correctly, my windowsill.

I never expected to feel more than friendship for the man who gave me back a sliver of my old self.

I never expected to be drawn in by those depthless ruby eyes.

I never expected to be captured by his short temper and fiery personality.

I never expected to fall for someone who didn't say much after he had reached his six word quota for the day.

I never expected to want someone who would kill me as soon as look at me.

I never expected to love my best friend.

I never expected him to love me back.

I never expected things to turn out this way. But life doesn't always turn out like you expect.


A/N: Okay, so I couldn't resist mentioning Kuro and Yomi. There aren't enough stories about them, especially Yomi. No one loves him. Wow, I just reread this and the word never no longer looks like a word to me. Sorry.
