A/N: Another short oneShot on SetoJou. If you like sweet romances... this ain't exactly it. It's sorta... morbid. Yup, just like the last one.

Omigod... I just read this over... and it never indicated which one is speaking huh....

x[

sorry!!!

Well, it's Jou speaking... I apologize for confusions!!!


Today was the day before Christmas.

Every Christmas Eve, no matter how busy he was, he had always came.

He never broke the promise.

Back in high school, when we were sworn to rivalry...

That was also one of the rare times I had ever seen him wearing a sweater...

That was the first Christmas Eve we had spent together, leaving only when the bells chimed 12.

Then there was the Christmas after graduation.

We hadn't seen each other since since the big day, but I had waited there, knowing he would go.

I was right. He was there.

Then there was that last Christmas.

It was the first time the date was... named a date.

I was eager.

But there was something wrong...

He was sick, I had never seen him get sick before.

He looked tired, stressed... older.

Now this Christmas...

I'm waiting here, on this bench.

He would come.

He has to.

He had never broken the promise before.

My eyes trailed away from the ticking clock, across the street...

The church...

The grocery store...

The flower shop...

Then...

The morgue.

My eyes fell back to the clock.

It was 1 now.

He wasn't here.

He never will be.


A/N: Is it clear what happened to Seto? I'm not sure if I hinted it enough, but I don't really wanna come right out with it...

I mean, the morgue... I thought that was a big enough clue...

If there's any part... not good, plz review and tell me!!
