Hi everyone. I'm sorry it's taken so long to finish this one. Originally this was just one looooong one-shot fic. But then, a couple years ago I thought I might update it and revise it, putting it into chapters. Unfortunately while I was in the process of doing so, I lost the chapters of this story and I was stuck with a semi posted story. I've been looking for it ever since but alas, I haven't been able to find it. I've been in fiction limbo these past few months wondering if I should simply remove this fic or try to continue from where I left off. I finally came up with a solution after re-reading this story again and cringing at how ironically pathetic the plotline was… I've decided to totally and completely re-vamp the story. That's right. I will be completely changing most of this story and it's plot line. So I hope you like it.
Thank you all so much for having so much patience with me. This is for all you dirty minded kiddies out there!
IMPORTANT: This contains sexual situations and sexual references… if you're not old enough then you're legally not allowed to be reading this (although I'm not even allowed to be reading this either… and I wrote it!) so after that note: Read at your own will… I mean risk.
Title: Falling for a Flirt
Author: Crystal Saturn
Chapter: 1- A Confession?
Darien sighed as he lay on his bed, arms wrapped around his dream girl. She stirred slightly beneath him while Darien leaned over and kissed her forehead. She was asleep.
"I've got you now, Serena. You're all mine..." He sighed again, brushing her slightly rosy coloured cheeks lightly with the back of his hand.
"No... Dar... wrong. I got you...you're all MINE..." Serena mumbled in her sleep, "You've... always... been... mine" Serena whispered in her sleep once more. Darien thought to himself
'Hmm... she's right!' He thought about how hard it had been to get Serena to admit that she loved him.
"Just tell her already!" Andrew, Darien's best friend, nudged Darien on. "Come on Daz, you can't keep it from her forever! You have to tell her some time and it might as well be sooner rather than later! I mean, cause then you guy's can finally go out." Andrew smiled as he refilled Darien's coffee cup and sat down beside him.
"I don't know..." Darien looked meaningfully into his coffee cup as if it was going to help him in some way.
"Come on Daz! If you don't do it today, then you'll probably never do it!" Andrew said, which was partially true. Darien sighed deeply.
"You've got a point." He said stubbornly, frowning at how Andrew was always right.
"Well?" He asked, turning his head to his blond buddy.
"Well what?" Andrew asked confused.
"Well, what do I say? I can't just go up to her and say 'Hi Serena! I'm head over heels and madly in love with you even though you hate my guts. The reason why I was being a jerk to you all these times was to hide my true feelings for you and to get your undivided attention." Darien said in a sarcastic bubbly voice.
"I don't see why you can't say that." Andrew scratched his head. Darien glared at his best friend, giving him a strange look. A smile then embraced Andrew's lips as he chuckled and grinned sheepishly. Darien groaned loudly.
"What do I dooooo?" Darien banged his head on the counter, next to his cup of coffee.
"Not that, for a start. Hey, don't look now but she just came in." Andrew warned pretending to wipe down the counter once more. Not taking Andrew's advice, Darien's head swung around to see the blonde schoolgirl come in by herself. She walked towards the counter and Darien's heart went into overdrive. Serena stopped right behind him.
"Hey Andy! Can I please have a chocolate milkshake?" Serena asked politely, yet still cheery
"Sure Sere, coming right up!" Andrew said and winked at Darien. Darien spun around on his stool to face Serena.
"Why hello Meatball Head! How was your day?" Darien asked, rather calmly and smoothly, though his heart was pounding in his ears and his brain was sending mixed messages to every part of his body. At that moment Andrew came out with Serena's milkshake before leaving to 'wash up'.
"My day was just FINE until I saw YOU here! You're such a JERK!" Serena slurped away at her milkshake, a slight frown embracing her features.
"You know, you're right. I'm sorry." Darien turned around and drew a sip of his coffee.
"Oooh! You're the BIGGEST... Wait! WHAT?" Serena leaned over on the counter, ready for another one of their infamous name calling sessions which usually ended up with Serena storming off out of the arcade leaving Darien satisfied with himself.
'Was it just me, or did he call himself a jerk and apologize?' Serena thought to herself in disbelief.
"I said, you're right, I am a jerk to you and for that, I'm sorry." He said sincerely, momentarily looking Serena in the eyes before letting his gaze fall back upon his coffee.
After a few moments of silence, Darien turned his head to see the expression on Serena's face and chuckled. She continued to stare directly at him in awe.
"What?" Darien finally broke the silence.
"I'm just waiting for you to throw it back at my face and laugh at me for believing you were actually nice to me for once…" Serena continued to stare. Just then, a series of beeps could be heard coming from Serena's bag. "Oh my gosh... tell Andrew that I had to go... emergency!" Serena said, taking one more sip of her Chocolate milkshake.
"Wait Serena I-" Darien began but was interrupted.
"Byyee!" Serena smiled and waved. She ran towards the arcade doors. Darien felt his heart skip a beat. She'd never smiled to him before. That smile would forever be imprinted in his mind. But then reality struck and his heart began to slowly sink from where it had previously been beating out of control near his throat, down to the pit of his stomach. He didn't tell her.
"Well, what are you waiting for? Go chase after her!' Andrew smiled, leaning against the 'employer's only' doorway, drying a Sundae glass. Darien took one look at his best friend and bolted out the door glass doors of the arcade.
"Serena! Wait up!" Darien ran after the girl who abruptly stopped and turned around to face him, almost tripping over in the process. When Darien finally caught up to her he stood in front of her, nervous as ever. He didn't know what to say although he had planned this moment in his mind for what seemed like every moment of every day. Serena looked up at him, eyeing the tall man strangely.
"Serena, I HAVE to tell you something before I go totally crazy." Darien paused. His mind telling him he was about to lose the remainder of his sanity soon. And his heart was pounding in his chest cavity. He was almost certain she was able to see it pulsate under his shirt and jacket.
"What is it Darien?" She looked up at him and he froze.
