"I'm going to miss her so much," thought Yusuke.

When I see your smile
Tears run down my face I can't replace
And now that I'm strong I have figured out
How this world turns cold and it breaks through my soul
And I know I'll find deep inside me I can be the one

Rain was pouring from the sky in torrents. Yusuke walked slowly to Keiko's to say goodbye for the last time. He was leaving for demon world, and this time he wouldn't be coming back.

When he walked through the door, Keiko could tell by his expression that something was wrong. "Yusuke?" she pleaded, praying he wouldn't break her heart.

"Keiko, we need to talkā€¦" Yusuke said, gently leading her to a couch.


I will never let you fall
I'll stand up with you forever
I'll be there for you through it all
Even if saving you sends me to heaven

It's okay. It's okay. It's okay.
Seasons are changing
And waves are crashing
And stars are falling all for us
Days grow longer and nights grow shorter
I can show you I'll be the one

"NO!" she cried hysterically, beating his chest with her fists. "You can't do this to me again!"

"I'm so sorry. I have to go," said Yusuke, knowing he was on the verge of tears. "I'm so sorry."

He couldn't bear the hurt in her eyes. She looked up at him with watery eyes and begged him to stay with her. "We're supposed to be together forever," she sobbed.


I will never let you fall (let you fall)
I'll stand up with you forever
I'll be there for you through it all (through it all)
Even if saving you sends me to heaven

Cause you're my, you're my, my, my true love, my whole heart
Please don't throw that away
Cause I'm here for you
Please don't walk away and
Please tell me you'll stay, stay

"Swear you'll come back to me!" demanded Keiko, pulling Yusuke to herself in a tight embrace. He wrapped his arms around her waist and buried his face in her soft hair.

"They need me," he choked out. "I'm the new king, and I gave my word I'd assume the throne."

"I need you here with me!" She squeezed him tighter, willing him not go. "Don't you love me?"

Use me as you will
Pull my strings just for a thrill
And I know I'll be okay
Though my skies are turning gray

She thought of all the times she had nagged him about schoolwork and showing up to class on time. None of it seemed to matter anymore. Oh how she wished she could go back and confess her love for Yusuke every day of her life.

He kissed her one last time. She wailed as he stepped out into the rain and softly closed the door behind him.

She ran upstairs to her room and threw herself on the bed, sobbing into her pillow. Her aching heart threatened to burst out of her chest any moment.


I will never let you fall
I'll stand up with you forever
I'll be there for you through it all
Even if saving you sends me to heaven

Suddenly she felt a hand rest on her shoulder. She looked up into Yusuke's face. "Please don't let this be a dream," she whispered.

He reached out and stroked the tears on her cheeks.

"I didn't get very far," said Yusuke softly. "Before I realized I never want to be without you."
