Alright a new chapter, which means a new flood of excuses as to why I went on hiatus again. Basically I loaded up on hard classes so I can do four AP courses for next year. I was overwhelmed by schoolwork, and in the middle of the year one of my friends from middle school got in a car crash and died. I've had a tough year, but it won't stop me. I really need to finish this story so much it's killing me. So here's chapter four.

I do not own Absolute Boyfriend.

Again sorry for the wait.


Chapter Four: Lies and Guilt

Last Chapter:

"...but he knew there was something more between Phoenix and Riiko, and he was going to get to the bottom of it. He wasn't going to let someone take Riiko away from him. Especially not him."

Now: No P.O.V.

Night woke up with a start and looked down at Riiko, making sure he didn't wake her up as well. He felt even more groggy then the day before. The one thing he realized after becoming human was that sleep was good and waking up, was horrid. To make matters worse he didn't even get any of this precious sleep because he was kept up by the image of Phoenix. What's with this guy? I need to get rid of him. Suddenly an idea hit him like a ton of bricks.

Night and Riiko walked to school hand in hand not caring about the looks on everyones face after the "situation" from yesterday. Across the courtyard was Phoenix sporting a brace on his arm talking to some guys.

"Riiko I'll be right back, okay?" He let go of her hand and started to walk toward him. Riiko grabbed his hand.

"Night, come on I thought you realized what you did was wrong. Don't go stirring up trouble, there are consequences for your actions you know." He gave her a reassuring a smile.

"I know. I'm going to fix everything. Trust me, alright?" He placed a kiss on her forehead and walked over to Phoenix. He looked up from whoever he was talking to and glared at Night.

"Hey I told the administration that it was an accident so you don't have to bother me anymore, got it?"

"I just want to talk to you. I'm sorry for how I acted, and I'll back off." He started to walk back to Riiko, when something pulled him back. Phoenix motioned for his friends to leave.

"I don't know what you're trying to pull, but I'm not falling for it. I know you hate me, and I hate you. You see we are the same...I mean...we both want that girl over there," he said as he waved over to Riiko and smiled. She smiled back happy that they were getting along. "You may have her now but just you wait when you "left" we made a real, what do you say, connection." He smirked pleased with himself waiting for another violent outburst.

"Well I'm glad we had this talk. I'll see you later, yea?" He pat him on his shoulder and turned around. Phoenix's face contorted with anger.

"I know what you are. I know why you left. You think you can blend in with the rest of them? Well you're wrong, you will never be human."

"My friend that's where you are wrong." He started walking away with a feeling of unease. Who does he think he is?

The rest of the day went by in a blur. Night and Riiko were walking home hand in hand, lost in his thoughts he stared down the street.

"Hey, are you alright?" She said, bringing him back to the world. What do I do? I can't tell her what's going on. But I tell her everything. I guess it won't hurt.

"Umm I have," he rubbed the back of his head trying to think of what to say. "a headache. Yea, a headache, it hurts really bad." What is this? This thing in my stomach. Night felt a knot of guilt starting to build up inside of him.

"Aww let's hurry home and get you to bed. I'll make you some tea." She rubbed his back.

"Really? Riiko you're so cute! Let's go!" He grabbed her and dragged her home, pushing his guilt aside he went back to being "happy Night".

Night sat in bed surrounded by blankets, drinking his tea. Riiko slept next to him worn from being his nurse for the evening (A/N ok I know that sounds bad, but that's not what I mean). Well she insisted on taking care of me. Now I feel worse about lying to her. He got out of the bed, careful not to wake her up, and set his mug on the bedside table. He walked into the kitchen, grabbed the phone, and went outside. Aw man I forgot that number. Come on think Night think.

After several failed attempts he finally dialed the right number. "'Ello?" Shouted the voice through the receiver.

"Hey Gaku, is that you? I need you to do something for me," he whispered wary of the ears that could be around him.

"Well 'ello to ya too sweet 'art. I've been waitin fer ya to call, and wha' do I look like some sorta maid service?"

"Please I'm begging you."

"All right, all right. Quit ya whinin. Whadaya want?"

"I need you to investigate someone named Phoenix, he goes to Riikos' school. Find out everything you can."

I hope you liked it. It's not as long as I wanted it, but I really wanted to end the chapter like this.

Thank you for all of the reviews. I have been officially given a new computer (not going to lie the only reason was because Warcraft didn't work fast enough on my old one XD) so hopefully this will be easier for me to update.
