Scarlett- Hi guys, yeah I'm slow, reply's to reviews after chapter, Batman Moive rocked, and don't kill me (OR run me over with a camel ;) Bye-Bye.

Disclaimer- I don't own Bakugan

Chapter 16


I looked after Dan and Asami's retreating forms in disbelief. How could he…? I slide down the door and felt my eyes start to water up. I thought he loves me, and just when I was beginning to think—no I refuse to think he just left me for that slut. I stood up and pushed my tears back. I heard footsteps and giggles coming down the hallway, Julie and Alice came happily around the corner.

"Runo hey what's up?" Julie asked throwing her arms around me.

I rose and eyebrow and gently pushed her off, also deciding not to tell them about Dan. "Uh, what's wrong with her Alice?"

Alice looked like she won a million bucks. "You remember Billy right, back home, well he just asked Julie out. Julie actually said yes leaving Shun to me." She sighed blissfully.

"And my sister." I reminded.

Alice waved me off, apparently to happy to let me ruin her good mood. I sighed and my thoughts ran back towards Dan. Just what did Asami do to him, and what did him mean by first date. I silently left Alice and Julie to their boy babbling and slipped off down the hall. I saw Shun standing in the lobby by the vending machine, but no Dan or Asami. That got me worried, where are they? I walked over to Shun and tapped him on the shoulder. He looked at me and smile.

"Hey Runo what's up."

I shook and head. "Could be better." I mumbled.

Shun's face dropped and he looked at me with sympathy. "I know Runo, I saw them."

The tears started coming back. "Oh." Finally I couldn't hold the tears back anymore and they began to fall.

Shun pulled me into a hug and I wrapped my arms around his waist. "Why would he do it though?" I asked quietly.

Shun rubbed his thumb in circles around my back. "Who knows?"

It has to be Asami, or maybe I'm thinking to highly of Dan's feelings for me. It could be that stupid teenager thing when you say 'I love you' but you don't really mean. Strangely it hurt way worse than I originally thought it would be if we ever broke up. I pulled away from Shun and wiped my eyes, I saw Dan and Asami talking outside the hotel through the glass.

"I need to go talk to Dan." I declared.

I began walking away when a hand pulled me back and a soft pair of lips met my own. I stood there for a moment with my eye wide open; I pushed Shun away.

"Told you she didn't care Dan."

My stomach dropped and I slowly turned around to see Dan and Asami. Dan looked hurt before anger took over.

"I never expected this from you Runo."

He then turned around and walked out the hotel but not before grabbing Asami's hand and intertwining them. I tried to call out to Dan but he just kept walking. I clenched my fist together and turned to Shun.

"This is all your fault."

Shun shook his head and put his hands up. "Runo I'm sorry—"

"Shut up, just stay away from me."


I left New York early with my dad, my mother stayed to look after everyone else. Currently we both stood in front of Dan's parents signing a contract that released me from the arranged marriage. It took a lot of talking a explanation but they finally agreed.

"Okay it's done." My dad sighed, as he signed his name at the bottom of the contract.

My father stood up and started to leave. "Wait dad I need to ask them something."

Mrs. Kuso nodded, "What is it darling?"

"Why did you even put Dan and me into an arranged marriage?"

She smiled, "From the very moment you were born something told me you'd be perfect for my son. That's why."

I frowned and stood up, all this time I thought it was something so much more than that.

"Well whatever told you that is wrong. He hates me. Thank you for signing the contract though, goodbye."

I turned around and left their house with my dad, begging the tears not to fall.



I closed my room door and plopped down on my bed with a smirk. Poor, pathetic little Runo went running home with daddy. Loser. I finally got my boyfriend back but I'm not done with Runo just yet. I plan on making that little brat suffer for the rest of her life. Dan's just a bonus, and a tool to do so. My mother always told me to never stop until I got what I wanted and I plan on doing that. School may be over but I'm determined to make sure she never gets her little happily ever after. I got off my bed and walked over to my door and saw Alice talking Naoki. Perfect.

"Hey Alice, Naoki. Guess what your little whore of a friend did."

I waved my phone in the air. Yes I caught a picture of Shun kissing Runo, wonderful isn't it.

Naoki glared at me. "Don't call my sister that."

I smiled and walked over to them. "I'm sure you'll change your mind about that when you see this picture."

Alice shook her head. "Doubt it."

"Really, you know I know that you guy both have a thing for Shun. But I guess Runo does to."

I showed them the picture and they both gasped.

"How could she." Alice mumbled.

My smiled grew. "Think about it, she pretends to help you and to 'talk' to Shun about it. But let's face it; we both know she hasn't been talking to him." I laughed a little.

Naoki glared at the photo. "I can't believe she would stoop so low."

"Believe it."

"Thanks for telling us Asami." Alice smiled at me before walking away.

Naoki just left the room, slamming the door behind her.

I smiled and held my phone to my chest; this has to be the best day of my life. I looked at the picture of Runo and Dan, it's cute that she thought I wouldn't find out about her and Dan's arranged marriage.

"Watch out Runo cause' I'm not finished with you yet."

Scarlett-...Yeah, uh, review?

Scarlett- Hahahaha no violence is good, forget peace! Jk, thanks.


Go Runo... I hope Dan takes Runo's side.

Scarlett-Right he takes her side….I've got to go


wow amazing! If i was Runo i would have hiit asami! maybe not punch but a bi*ch slap hard!

Scarlett- Yeah, some people underestimate the power of a slap. And thhhaaannnkkk yyyooouuuu.


Amazing she deserved it anyway

Scarlett- No argument there.


Thank for updating! I have had a few similar experiences like Runo before. Oh, yeah. I am the freaking reason brunettes make better psychos! Ooh, Asami has so freaking crossed the line! Shun needs to learn to move on, and so does Asami! And yes, it IS possible to hate your own character. Like if I was J.K. Rowling, I would hate Ginny and Ron for stealing Harry and Hermione. (sorry off topic but I just got out of a very heated debate about HP pairings with a friend and I am a huge HxHr shipper) Ugh, too much drama in teens' lives. Love it, please update soon! (ooh, and your Walmart story too please!)

Scarlett- Power to brown headed psychos! And you're a HP fan, bless you child. And yeah waayyy to much drama in teenagers lives. Thanks and I loved your review.

Scarlett- HEY THERE! Hahaha I'm watch your camel now. "Maybe next YEAR Bob!" hahaha, oh and thanks.


I'm loving his story! Plz update soon... And I hope u find a way to put asami in her place she disgusts me

Scarlett- Thanks! Okay I have to say this, I LOVE YOUR PROFILE PICTURE! That was my FAVORITE scene in Shugo Chara!

Scarlett- Thanks, *Glare* I hate finals. Anyways hoped you liked this chapter I was feeling particularly evil today ha-ha.


Awesome! I cant wait for the next chapter!

Scarlett- Thanks, sorry I made you wait.

Scarlett-Haaha, I. Feel. The. Same. Way. Finals went, okay. C+ in Science oh yeah! And chizzle?


Thanks for updating! Asami is so like Charlotte from H2O. A total b-witch. Yeah, hormones do that to people. Exams are yucky. School sucks. Loved it, please update asap!

Scarlett- OMG I remember Charlotte, I couldn't stand her! Yeah total B-witch, hahaha oh hormones.


There are seriously way to many girls after Shun, but it's amusing watching them fight over him...

Scarlett- Noticed that to, that's why I had break it up.

Red Riding Storm-

Me Myself and I-

Me: Thank you for updating! :)

Myself: I love the chapter!

I: Keep up the good work!

Scarlett- I LOVE LOVE LOVE how you wrote your review I even started humming Me Myself and I by Demi Lovato while reading it.


Great job! I love how people are in love with other people like a love triangle but a really big one though

Scarlett- I know right, if that was my life I would be like insane by now.


ok it offical we got to kill that one chick who's name i can't remeber and get cupid to shot Shun with an arrow while he's looking at Alice

Scarlett- Ahh ShunXAlice fan….interesting.


Thanks for updating! Did I mention Asami is a freaking b-itch? No Dan, don't listen to her! Aw, Alice. Stupid Asami and stupid Shun for hitting on Runo! Loved it, please update soon!

Scarlett- Thanks! Hahaha, Gank! That word is sooo funny to me. And yes, yes she is.

T.K Andrews-

Sorry to hear about that. I understand. I nowadays am too getting depressed and my birthday is coming up and I'm not looking forward to it too. I hope your relative gets out of the hospital soon. I hope you get better too. *smiling* Ooh! I have so many questions, like: Why is Asami so freaking obsessed with Dan? Does it have something to do with the engagement? WHY did Dan's parents wanted Runo to marry their son in the first place? They must've had a reason. Is that reason ever going to be revealed? Well, I guess that's up to you, but could you please answer the questions? *puppy-eyes* I'm dying of curiosity here, not to mention if the reason why Dan's parents wanted Runo to marry Dan is really sick and twisted *evil laugh* it can add great volume to the story. I am looking forward to the next chapter. see you soon!

Scarlett- Thanks, she is out and fully recovered. I wish you the very best birthday and I hope it wasn't as depressing as mine. And I think this chapter answered some questions. Thanks you again, I never thought about something evil, I should've. Tata for now!


i cant believe asami! i hate how shes just trying to break up dan and runo when it was her fault she and dan broke up in the first place! i hope dan realizes that asami tricked him and that runo still loves him plz update soon

Scarlett- Hey, this is DAN we're talking about, but we'll see.


Oh my god...I'm soooooo sorry for your lost :(...and I hope everything is better now... Now the chapter...that bitch...I hope she dies alone! I hope shun will not help her! Kill her Runo...I want revenge... Please update soon...i need to read more... PussyCatMewMew

Scarlett- *Sigh* Thanks and slowly everything is. Now to the review part, hahahahahahha I Love how you just switch mood. Revenge is coming, but not in this chapter.


Oh Gosh! This chapter is really bursting the hell out of me. I swear I could slap Asami real hard. Dan's really slow in comprehension Lol. Love it! Update soon! )

Scarlett- Hahaha, don't we all. And yes, yes he is.


please write more! :D I want to know what that blond bimbo is planning and what Runo is planning on doing to her in revenge :P

Scarlett- Evil things, Evil EVIL things…hahaha

Scarlett- Keep writing I shall, and uuugggghhh High-School it's like an rash that won't go away! Hahaha okay ewww, but thanks!

Scarlett- Thanks, Oh and I adore your profile picture!


love your story! well...i have an idea. what if you make Dan comeback to Asami then Runo leave. then Runo comeback as the popular girls or something like that (it's up to you) and make Dan fall in love with her. Thanks.

Scarlett- I'm thinking about doing something slightly different, but this time they'll be older.


Thanks for updating! Holy motherf*cking Hell, I hope you're okay! And I hope everyone is alright! Some people out there are just screwed up, and I'm glad that person was okay. Um, happy late birthday! Anyways, Asami that bitch! Didn't I say she was a bitch? She's nothing but trouble! Ooh, how will Dan and Runo's relationship survive this? Loved it, please update soon and I hope everything turns out okay!

Scarlett- Yeah I know, kind of creeps me out but yeah. And thank you for the birthday wishes. Tell me what you think about this chapter cause' it was ba-na-na's. Yeah okay I watch to much Adventure Time. Hahaha thanks for the lovely comment. Made my day.

RockyBlue DanxRuno-

Scarlett- Not dead, but I did stub my toe. Oh and I got it, thanks. Sorry if my pace for updating is, wonky.


please conti this is de best fanfic i ever read and please conti the other too (Stuck In Wal-Mart with dan kusso)

Scarlett- Aww thanks, and I will personally I like the other story better.


This was an amazing story well done!

Scarlett- Thank you.

Mystery Angle-

love your story and i have an idea if you don't mind. how about instead of runo chasing after dan like all the other stories let's mix it up a little bit. what if runo convinced her parents to let her go back home where she's excepted into a super inclusive boarding school where she meets marocho, mira, ace, fabia, ren, baron, and our bakugan friends. but this school is a little different. it is actualy training a training fusility for bakugon brawlers to protect the world. Runo and Marucho are 2 of the 6 legendary warriors and with the help of mira, ace, baron, ren, and fabia they travel back to runo's old school after 3 months to look for the other 4 warriors. 1 problem though they are julie, shun, alice, and...dan. who is jeousis of runo's friends. can the pull together to save the world. i think it would make a great secreal to this fanfic. you know change it up a bit. feel free to use this idea just give me credit in the first chapter

Scarlett- Cool idea, I already got back to you on that. ;)


I love love love love love this! Pwease pwease pwease put a little more shun x runo

Scarlett- Thanks. And I'm probably done with all the ShunXRuno thing cause I have other plans for him.

Miranda 101-

Pleeze make Dan beg runo on his knees for her to take him back and could you move asami out of the picture cuz I seriously hate her and I think shun and runo don't make a good couple. Thxx Write soon

Scarlett- Could agree more but for now we'll just have to wait.


Damn, that Asami is so sneaky o Is she really trying that hard just to get Dan back? Can't wait for the next chapter :D

Scarlett- Yeah well some girl can be desperate like that, and thanks.
