Starry Eyed Surprise
The music was blaring through the speakers and Serenity was singing herself hoarse, along with the thousands of other fans at this sweet A concert. Joey had bought her tickets for her twentieth birthday and she absolutely loved it. She glanced over and saw him and Tea dancing with Tristan and Mai.
Serenity threw her hands up in the air and moved to the music. She was completely unaware of cobalt blue eyes staring at her from across the crowd.
He had been watching her for only a few moments. Something about her was familiar and kept tugging at an unused part of his brain. He shook his head and went back to the band onstage.
Serenity laughed out loud. She was having a wonderful time. She felt so free. Joey had told her he wouldn't bother her unless she needed him. She had thanked him gratefully.
There was a short pause before the next song started up and she took her time to scan the crowd. She was startled to see someone looking at her. I think he's one of Joey's old schoolmates. For the life of her she couldn't think of his name. Serenity mentally shrugged and turned away from his gaze.
Damn she caught me staring. He pursed his lips. Why can't I remember who she is? Why do I even care? He tried to pay attention to the people around him, but kept going back to the red head. She was pretty, with a slim physique and long, beautiful hair. If Seto Kaiba didn't know any better, he'd say he was smitten.
The band started their next set of songs and Seto's thoughts were drowned out. As the concert moved at a considerable pace, he made his way through the crowd so as to be next to the girl he had been infatuated with for the past half hour. She hadn't noticed him and kept dancing and randomly shouting out the lyrics.
He grinned. She was charming in her own little way. She had cute features and pouty lips. All the better to kiss you with my dear.. As she swayed to the music, Kaiba bent down next to her ear.
Serenity whirled around, hazel eyes wide. She saw the brown haired guy who was staring at her earlier and blushed.
His grin seemed to widen. Yes, all the better to kiss you senseless with my dear..
"I noticed you and thought you could use a little company, that is if you don't mind?"
She shrugged, "Suite yourself. My name's Serenity, what's yours?"
She nodded turning back to the music. Seto watched her for a moment. She closed her eyes and started to sway to the beat. She was utterly delectable. I feel like the cat after the canary. He chuckled. Serenity cracked an eye open and looked over at him.
"You laughing at me?"
He grinned over at her, "No."
She smiled, "Mm hm. Well I find that hard to believe Seto."
"Well believe it, Serenity," he purred her name.
She blushed hotly. Is he hitting on me?
Serenity rolled her eyes.
"So you here with anyone?"
"No, and yourself?'
He shook his head, "No."
They were quiet for a few minutes just watching the concert. The band played one of their slower songs.
He bowed to her, "Would you care to dance?"
She blushed again, "Um, sure."
He took her hand and placed it on his shoulder. They started to move in sync with the rhythm.
"So Seto, do you normally hit on women at concerts or is this your first?" she grinned.
He laughed, "You would happen to be the first."
Ok, he's damn sexy, especially when he laughs. She smiled.
"Do you normally entice men at concerts or is this your first as well?"
He found her enticing?
She smirked "Yes, even though I never thought myself to be enticing."
She's one helluva sexy minx when she smirks.
"I bet," he grinned.
She laughed, "You're very odd."
"Why thank you."
She bit her lip to keep from laughing again.
Another sexy trait.. even if I should be the one doing the biting.
"Have we met before? For some strange reason it feels like I've seen you somewhere.."
His brow furrowed.
How endearing! She smiled.
"I know what you mean, I can't place it either," he smirked at her, "maybe it's de ja vu?"
"Maybe," she laughed.
The slow song ended and they pulled away from each other. Seto grabbed her hand and placed a faint kiss on the back. She blushed for the umpteenth time that night.
"After all this would you like to grab a coffee?"
She bit her lip as she thought it over.
"Sure, it won't hurt," she flashed him a smile.
"Splendid," he smirked.
After the concert was finished, Serenity and Seto walked a few blocks over to a quaint little mom and pop diner. They sat at a booth and ordered one coffee and one hot tea. They sat in silence for a couple of minutes, ears still ringing from the loudness of earlier that night.
"So do you go to college, have a job..?"
"Finished college, and yes," Seto smirked, "I have a job."
Serenity smiled and eyed him oddly, "Ookay."
"What about you?"
"College. I'm going to be a history professor."
The waiter brought over their orders and left the tab. After she had left, Seto turned back to Serenity who was gently sipping her tea. He took in her flushed cheeks and bright eyes. She looked up at him and smiled.
"History professor, that's interesting. What made you want to do that?'
"I don't really know. I've always liked it, just seemed a smart thing to do," she laughed.
"So do you have any siblings?"
"One, a younger brother."
"Oh, that's nice. I have an older brother, he's insufferable sometimes but I still love him," she grinned.
"I know what you mean. Mokuba can be infuriating, but he's a good kid."
"Yeah, Joey's very overbearing, but he has his days like well tonight for instance. He actually bought me tickets for a concert and wasn't breathing down my neck."
Joey.. why does that sound familiar? Eh, no matter.
"So what exactly do you do?"
"I own Kaiba Corp," he shrugged.
Her jaw dropped, "You're Seto Kaiba?"
He smirked, "The one and only."
"Wow," she slumped back in her seat, "Joey would kill me if he knew I was talking to you."
Then the little light bulb in Seto Kaiba's mind went off.
She nodded. Great, I meet a guy who's smoking hot and we totally hit it off and Joey ruins it without even being here. Way to open your big mouth Serenity!!
He started to laugh. It was soft at first then built itself up until he was holding onto the table to stay upright.
"What? What's so funny?"
He caught his breath and grinned at her, "Just thought I'd never be caught fraternizing with the enemy."
She rolled her eyes and cracked a smile, "So I'm the enemy?"
"Yep. Your plan of seduction worked," he winked.
She blushed, "You're looney."
His phone started ringing.
"Will you excuse me for a minute? It's my brother."
He rose from the booth and walked towards the restrooms. She placed her chin in the palms of her hands. He isn't half as bad as Joey makes him out to be. He doesn't even seem to mind I'm related to Joey. She smiled. He's really.. sweet. She saw him walking back and pulled herself from her musings.
"Sorry, I'm going to have to cut this a little short. Mokuba is worried I won't come home 'til late then sleep in and forget to take him to the park," he smiled.
She laughed, "Oh that's perfectly fine. If I'm not home around two, Joey blows a gasket."
He paid for their drinks and then held his arm out for her.
"Oh thank you."
He smiled, "You're welcome."
Seto walked her to her and Joey's apartment. He led her up to the front door.
"I hoped you enjoyed tonight."
She smiled, "I did, we'll have to repeat this again."
"We most certainly will," he grinned, "how about tomorrow around seven?'
She bit her lip then smiled, "Sure, that sounds good."
She leaned up and gave him a quick kiss on the lips. Before she had a chance to pull away Seto pressed his lips to hers and cradled her head. She wrapped her arms around his neck. The lock being undone on the other side of the door is what pulled them apart.
He grinned wolfishly at her as she blushed.
"Yes well I had a pleasant time with you Seto."
"And I too Serenity," he bent down and whispered in her ear, "you taste utterly delightful."
He pulled back and gave her a slight bow, as she blushed even deeper. A disheveled Joey opened the door as Seto slipped away.
"'Ren is that you?" he gazed down the hallway, "and who was 'dat?"
"Oh no one, just a nice guy who walked me home," she walked into the apartment.
"I bet," he mumbled.
"I'm going to bed Joey, goodnight," she gave him a quick peck on the cheek.
"Night little sis."
They both headed to their respective bedrooms. As Serenity lay down for the night a small smile was playing on her lips. She rolled over onto her side.
She sighed dreamily, "Seto.."
Author's Note: So I don't know if I'm going to make this a one shot or if I should continue on. I personally like how it turned out, but I don't know if it should continue. Anywho, please read and review! :-)
