Haibara was sitting at the kitchen island reading the newspaper. Reaching out to the coffee mug in front of her, she raised it to her mouth.

That's when she felt arms slide around her waist.

"Morning," Conan whispered in her ear and kissed her cheek. "Oh, coffee." He grasped the mug and pulled it from her hand, taking a large drink. "Good stuff."

Haibara pouted to herself, snatching the mug back. "You know, there's no need to steal mine. There's enough for everyone to share." With one finger, she pointed to the coffee pot and sipped the still warm beverage.

"Yours is better," he said with a shrug.

Raising an eyebrow at his logic, she shook her head. "It's the same coffee as all—"

"And it isn't stealing," Conan cut her off. "It's sharing." He flashed a grin at her, took the mug back, and took another huge drink. "Oh, crap, I'm gonna be late," he groaned, glancing down at his watch. He set the mug back down on the counter and kissed her on the cheek again. "I'll catch you for lunch."

He rushed to the door, shrugging on his jacket. She heard the door open and mumbled something about rude interruptions under her breath.

She finished her mumbling as he ran back in and pecked her on the lips. "I love you, Ai."

Then he was gone.

Haibara smiled a bit before turning her attention back to the newspaper. Still smiling, she reached for the coffee mug and raised it to her mouth, sighing when she found it empty.

"Sharing my ass."

I. Am. Not. Dead. Actually, these three stories have been in my flash drive for months but I didn't have time to upload since I was busy.

Senior year is so freaking hectic I'm surprised I have the time to even eat. Seriously, it's true. Tomorrow our school's Pearl Year Anniversary is taking place and, well, let's just say I'm exhausted (understatement of the millennium). And yeah, I'll be our class' contestant for the Impromptu so wish me luck, haha.

Okay, rant time. Has anyone read "The Son of Neptune" by Rick Riordan? Because I have. And even though I was happy since I get to read Percy Jackson (My ultimate book crush, with Gale Hawthorne from The Hunger Games being second.) again after a book without him on it, I was utterly pissed since it ended on a cliff-hanger. Seriously? Did it have to end on the part where Argo II is finally about to land on Camp Jupiter? Did it have to end on the part where I finally get to read about Jason and Piper and Leo? AND I HAVE TO WAIT FOR A FULL YEAR TO READ THE THIRD BOOK.


New Beginnings will probably take a few more weeks for me to upload it. Sorry.
