Even If We're Miles Apart

Chapter 13: Serenade

"Serenade?" Takuya asked, confused.

"Ya come on Takuya! It could totally work!" Tommy said.

"Tommy's got a point; I mean you were able to write 'Tonight' with no hassle what so ever." Kouichi said.

"Ya.. but…" Takuya said; he was nervous about the idea for some reason. I mean he knows that he could totally pull it off, but something in him was preventing him from being 100% confident. It's as though something was telling him that if he did do this, things would just be worse.

"Ok, Takuya, you have got to stop listening to anyone or weirdly, possibly enough anything that is preventing you from doing this. It's going to work I swear." Koji said, to reassure his friend and it worked.

"Thanks man." Takuya said as he patted Koji on the back.

Meanwhile back in Zoe's house, she had called her parent


s and told them the whole story; her mom found it so sweet, as though it was a real life love story while her dad was about to ground her for life until her mom stepped in and made him support her.

Now she was in her bedroom, lying on her bed, and thinking about everything that has happened, from when she left Japan five years ago up until now.

'Kazemon?' Zoe asked the voice in her head.

'Yes Zoe. I'm here, what wrong?' Kazemon asked worriedly.

'It's nothing to be worried about; I'm just afraid, a tad only though.' Zoe said.

'Afraid that things will be awkward with you and Takuya and that it'll ruin your best friendship?' Kazemon asked.

'Yeah… exactly.' Zoe said sadly.

'Come on Zo, you and Takuya's friendship can survive anything, and this situation qualifies as anything.' Kazemon assured her.

'Well you do have a point.' Zoe said.

'But even I have to admit, we can't just forget and or not talk about what happened, I mean I bet he figured out that the guy( the one I said I'm in love with) I explained to him while I thought he was the stranger is him. I mean it's so obvious, even Takuya can figure it out.' Zoe continued.

'True, but trust me, just don't worry too much, just let things come naturally.' Kazemon said.

Zoe was about to respond until she heard something hit her window.

She opened her bay window and saw Takuya and the rest of the guys there, with their instruments at hand.

"Hey Zoe!" Takuya called out to her while the others waved.

"Guys! What the heck are you doing here?" Zoe asked frantically.

"If Jana catches you, you guys will be in big trouble!" she continued with the same frantic tone.

"You should know by now, that I'll do anything just to see you." Takuya called back which caused the others including Zoe to let out an "awwww."

"Listen, I know we didn't talk about what happened when we got coffee in Italy the first time we saw each other there and I know you might not want to talk about, so let me just sing to you how I feel." Takuya said.

All Zoe could do was smile as the guys started playing.


This time, This place

Misused, Mistakes

Too long, Too late

Who was I to make you wait

Just one chance

Just one breath

Just in case there's just one left

'Cause you know,

you know, you know

That I love you

I have loved you all along

And I miss you

Been far away for far too long

I keep dreaming you'll be with me

and you'll never go

Stop breathing if

I don't see you anymore

Zoe was speechless, in a good way.

On my knees, I'll ask

Last chance for one last dance

'Cause with you, I'd withstand

All of hell to hold your hand

I'd give it all

I'd give for us

Give anything but I won't give up

'Cause you know,

you know, you know

That I love you

I have loved you all along

And I miss you

Been far away for far too long

I keep dreaming you'll be with me

and you'll never go

Stop breathing if

I don't see you anymore

By this time, Zoe had already gone downstairs to where they were, and she was now, once again lost in Takuya's eyes and his song too.

So far away

Been far away for far too long

So far away

Been far away for far too long

But you know, you know, you know

I wanted

I wanted you to stay

'Cause I needed

I need to hear you say

That I love you

I have loved you all along

And I forgive you

For being away for far too long

So keep breathing

'Cause I'm not leaving you anymore

Believe it

Hold on to me and, never let me go

Keep breathing

'Cause I'm not leaving you anymore

Believe it

Hold on to me and, never let me go

Keep breathing

Hold on to me and, never let me go

Keep breathing

Hold on to me and, never let me go


They finished up and Zoe still couldn't find the words to say how she feels at that moment.

"So what do you think?" Takuya said with a smile.

"It was amazing! Did you mean every word you sang?" Zoe asked.

"Of course I did." Takuya said.

The two just stood there smiling at each other, until they both felt a spotlight hit them.

They looked up to where the light was coming from and they saw Koji with a megaphone.

"Well don't just stand there! Kiss her!" Koji screamed into the megaphone.

"Koji what the…." Zoe said but couldn't finish as she felt Takuya's lips on hers.

"Awwww…" The two could hear Tommy, Kouichi and surprisingly JP say.

She kissed back and after a few moments their lips parted.

"I love you." Takuya said.

"I love you too." Zoe replied and the two just smiled at one another.
