message from miwa: ok so here is the reason why i didn't update find your way home yet. i was having an inspiration issue on the other stories so i started this one. well its alot longer than my others so enjoy. i don't own shugo chara or the song used in this chapter.

Happy ending

"Amu, the mail is here!" Yaya called from downstairs. I sat up and sighed. After high school we, meaning me, Yaya, Utau, lulu, and Rima, had moved into a house together. The others all had boyfriends now. Yaya was going out with Kairi, Utau was kind of going out with Kukai (it's an on off thing), lulu was with Tadase, and Rima was going out with Nagihiko. But I was still single and still waiting. Ikuto had promised to return but it had been over eight years since then. I hadn't dated any one at all.

In our second year of high school we had started a band. I had agreed to it with the hope that if we became famous enough Ikuto might notice me. He might come back to me. Before he had left he had promised to make me fall in love with him. But he didn't have to try. I already loved him.

I walked down the stairs in my pajama's not caring who saw me. The only person I wanted to impress was somewhere in another part of the world. The girls were sitting around the table staring at a letter with the words 'you're invited' written in gold ink on it. Everyone had one, they had already opened theirs. I picked up the letter and saw their looks of horror.

"What up with you guys. What did we get invited to?" I asked as I started to open it.

"We got invited to play at a wedding" Utau said quietly. I shrugged and opened the envelop the rest of the way and opened the card.

You're invited to the wedding


Ikuto tsukiyomi

Asa Mashii

We would like for your band

Diamond love

To play during the wedding reception

Sincerely Tsukiyomi Ikuto

I froze my eyes wide. This couldn't be true. This was someone's sick joke. That had to be it. Maybe it was one of the girls making fun of me. I looked at them. They all seemed pretty upset. One of them must be faking it right.

"Come on guys that's not funny" I said throwing the letter on the table.

"We know it's not funny Amu we don't have anything to do with this" rima said placing her hand comfortingly on my arm. It wasn't them. Does that mean its real, does it mean Ikuto doesn't love me anymore.

"What are we going to do Amu?" Utau asked. I thought for a moment before answering.

"I don't know yet I just… I'm just gonna go for a walk" I said before going upstairs. In my room I leaned against the door and slid till I was sitting. Ikuto's back in town. He didn't contact me. He's marrying someone else.

"I have to go see him" I got up and poked Miki's egg it opened a bit and she peeked out.

"What is It Amu-Chan" she asked rubbing her eyes. I smiled.

"I need an outfit Miki, I'm going to find Ikuto" I said. She nodded and started to draw. When she was done she showed it to me. I smiled.

"Great as always Miki" I said as my pajamas turned into a corset style black tank top with white stripes and a black mini skirt. I smiled and pulled my now dark purple hair into two pony tails and curled them. Then I pulled on my knee high black boots and then ran down the stairs. Every one stared at me.

"Going somewhere Amu?" They asked when they saw my outfit. I grinned and pulled on a pair of sunglasses.

"I'm going to clear a few things up. Oh and I'm taking your Porsche Utau" I said taking her key off the wall. She just shrugged.

"I have to see this" she said smirking. Lulu, Yaya and Rima nodded, looks like there were gonna be witnesses. As we got into the shiny silver car Utau's phone rang.

"Hey kukai what's up?" she said answering. Apparently they were on again.

"Wait hold up where?" she said. Apparently kukai wanted her to meet him somewhere.

"Amu drive to the café by the train station, kukai and the others are staling Ikuto" she said. I nodded and took the next turn. Soon we arrived at the café. Kukai was leaning against the driver's door of a blue car. Standing in front of him was a familiar figure with midnight blue hair. I parked the car and took a deep breath.

"Ready for this Amu?" Utau asked as she put on her sunglasses. I nodded and got out of the car. We walked over to them and the girls latched onto their boyfriends. I took Kukai's place leaning against the door. That's when I noticed the girl latched to Ikuto's arm. It took all my self control to not push her away and cling to him. I crossed my arms and frowned. Ikuto looked at me with no sense of recognition. Of course he wouldn't he can't see my eyes and my hair isn't pink anymore. I smiled at him and looked at the others. They also seemed to realize that he didn't recognize me. How could he forget me?

"So I'm waiting" I said still looking up at him waiting to see if he recognized my voice. He didn't he just raised his eyebrow.

"Waiting for what?" he asked. The girl on held on tighter to his arm, bitch.

"Well if I'm not mistaken you made a promise to me before you left." I said smirking. I was positive that would make him recognize me. He just tilted his head. The girl rested her head on his arm. In my head I imagined myself punching her into next week then being swept up in Ikuto's arms and him kissing me and then… well anyway.

"That's rude Ikuto" Utau said putting her arm around my shoulders.

"And what my dear little sister is so rude?" he asked raising his eye brow again.

"Don't worry about it Utau I have changed a bit. Unlike a certain cat-eared cosplaying pervert?" I said before taking off my sun glasses, and walking away. Ikuto's eyes widened and his mouth fell open.

"Amu is that you!?" he said stepping away from the girl and towards me.

"Yeah it's me Ikuto nice of you to finally realize. And don't worry about that promise you made. I moved on." I said before getting in the car. The girls could get their own ride home. Before I could drive off the passenger door opened and Ikuto got in. I glared at him.

"I'm not staying here" I said as I turned on the car and backed out of the parking spot.

"I didn't expect you to. I figured we needed to talk" he said buckling his seat belt. I frowned and turned a corner without slowing down. He griped the arm rest.

"Geez Amu slow down!" he said glaring at me.

"Don't talk to me so casually" I growled slamming the breaks. He was jerked forward.

"And why shouldn't I speak to you casually?" he asked turning to face me. I glared at him, my hand on the steering wheel twitched.

"Because we haven't spoken in eight years, we are no longer close friends. It's a lot different now than when we were kids." I said looking at my hands. He sighed and ran his hand through his hair.

"Amu really now, what's up with you?" He asked looking at me. my eyes widened and I stared at him in disbelief.

"What's wrong!? What's wrong is that you made a promise to me! What's wrong is that I actually believed you. What's wrong is that you're back but it's nothing like I wanted it to be. What's wrong is that I still love you!" I yelled at him resting my forehead on the steering wheel and crying. He sat there looking at me a pained expression on his face. He didn't do or say anything to comfort me.

"Amu we were just kids when I made that promise. We're both older now and more mature. You didn't truly think that things would be the same" he said as though it was completely obvious. I turned quickly in my seat and slapped him.

"Just get out now Ikuto!" I yelled at him. He looked at me sadly before getting out of the car.

"There's a concert at the place Utau held her concert. You need to hear us play before hiring us right, so come. Maki will let you in" I said before he closed the door. I started the car again and drove off, not looking back.

[Ikuto's pov]

I stood on the side of the road watching the silver Porsche drive off. My cheek still stung from where Amu's hand had hit it. Amu was extremely upset. I hadn't expected that to happen at all. Well I guess I did expect it a tiny bit. I mean I did promise her that I would make her love me. But I was just being reckless. I was still just a kid. Amu was even younger I never expected her to react so strongly. I kicked a rock and started walking back to my car.

"Ne Ikuto I thought you still love Amu, nyaa~" Yoru said sticking his head out of my pocket. I sighed and pushed him back in.

"You know I have to marry Asa. I don't have much of a choice" I said. His head popped out of my pocket again and he frowned.

"Then you should tell Amu what happened. You saw how upset she was" he said. I looked down my hair falling in front of my eyes.

"I know Yoru… but I doubt she would want to talk to me now. Yoru if I write a letter would you bring it to her?" I asked already knowing that he would say yes. Yoru nodded and floated up to my shoulder. I reached in my pocket and clutched the dumpty key.

"Come on lets go before Asa freaks out" I said walking towards the café. Yoru chuckled and lay on my shoulder. I just sighed and put my hands in my pockets.

[That night Amu's pov]

"Amu what are you going to wear?" Utau asked as she shifted through the rack of clothes. I stood up and pulled a dress off the rack. It was a short dress that ended just above my knees. It was mostly black but in the middle was a black and red checker pattern with hearts diamonds spades, and clovers on it. Utau sighed.

"That is so completely like you Amu" she said picking out a white dress for herself. I just sighed and tried to decide what to do with my hair. Suddenly yaya ran in yelling. Utau grabbed her and kept her from running.

"What is with you Yaya?" she asked. Yaya took a deep breath then yelled.

"Rima has an evil plan!!!" she yelled grinning. I rubbed my ear, and looked over at the door as Rima and Lulu walked in.

"What's your plan Rima?" I asked knowing that Rima was good at coming up with plans. She held up a piece of paper. I took it and looked over it.

"The new song but we only practiced it once. But it would be good, I guess" I said reading over the lyrics I had written days before I even knew Ikuto was coming.

"Ladies your on in five minutes" our manager said from the door way. We nodded, and headed out. I decided to let my hair down and my bangs cover my right eye. The tips of my hair were died pink and I wore purple contacts with pink circles around the pupils.

[Ikuto's pov]

I stood near the back of the room watching the dark stage. In my back pocket was an envelope with Amu's name on it. After the concert I plan to have Yoru bring it back to her. Hoping she would accept my answer. Yoru rested on my shoulder and once again Asa was clinging to my arm. To all others she appeared to be a loving fiancé. To me she appeared to be a clingy controlling bitch.

I tried to pull my arm free but she held on tighter and glared at me her finger hovering over the button on her wrist. The button that would ruin my life it would make it so I could never see Amu again. I had to explain to her why I was doing this. Why I had to hurt her. And to tell her that it also hurts me. I flicked Yoru off my shoulder and he lifted the letter out of my pocket. Suddenly the lights on the stage turned on and the music started. Amu was standing in the front holding a microphone in her hand. She closed her eyes and waited for her cue to begin.

I hope the ring you gave to her turns her finger green
I hope when you're in bed with her, you think of me
I would never wish bad things, but I don't wish you well
Could you tell, by the flames that burned your words

I never read your letter
'Cos I knew what you'd say
Give me that Sunday school answer
Try and make it all OK

Does it hurt to know I'll never be there
Bet it sucks, to see my face everywhere
It was you, who chose to end it like you did
I was the last to know
You knew exactly what you were doin'
she may believe you but I never will
Never again

If she really knows the truth, she deserves you
A trophy wife, oh how cute
Ignorance is bliss
But when your day comes, and he's through with you
And he'll be through with you
You'll die together but alone

You wrote me in a letter
You couldn't say it right to my face
Give me that Sunday school answer
Repent yourself away

Does it hurt to know I'll never be there
Bet it sucks, to see my face everywhere
It was you, who chose to end it like you did
I was the last to know
You knew exactly what you were doin'
Don't say, you simply lost your way
They may believe you but I never will
Never again

Never again will I hear you
Never again will I miss you
Never again will I fall to you

Never again will I kiss you
Never again will I want to
Never again will I love you

Does it hurt to know I'll never be there
Bet it sucks, to see my face everywhere
It was you, who chose to end it like you did
I was the last to know
You knew exactly what you were doin'
Don't say, you simply lost your way
They may believe you but I never will
Never again

Never again [a/n I do not own]

I swallowed and stared at Amu. She seemed so confident so beautiful. But the words of the song stung. It felt as though she was aiming them at me. At the end of the song her eyes met mine and she smirked. Then they started to sing another song. I cursed and pulled my arm away from Asa and stormed back stage. Yukari didn't stop me when I stormed past her. Probably a good idea. I was not in the mood to argue. I walked into the dressing room and sat on the couch. I crumbled up the letter I had planned to give to her and threw it in the trash.

[Amu's pov]

After the first song I lost sight of Ikuto. Maybe he had left. He always had a bad temper. But at least I had gotten part of my revenge. Of course Rima had a second plan to back up the first, one that would hopefully really get to him. I smiled as we walked back stage and I saw what Rima's plan was. A boy leaned against the wall. He had dark black hair with red streaks. His hair was messy and fell in front of his eyes.

"Amu this is my cousin Keito. He's studying to be an actor at Tokyo University" Rima said grinning. I looked at the guy again and saw that he had emerald green eyes and at least six ear piercings in his ear. I grinned, he was definitely my type.

"So what is he doing here?" I asked. The guy grinned and walked over to me.
"According to my cousin I'm going to be pretending to be your boyfriend to make a guy jealous." He said shrugging. I smiled and grabbed his arm.

"Rima you're a genius" I said grinning.
