Chapter 1: Waiting for You

This will be strictly KukaixAmu no other pairings will happen but Tadase will be present despite my dislike towards him xD anyway just to clear things up no shugo charas will be present either I just want to focus on the characters and the story line. I'm super inspired to do with story based off of the song Your Call by Secondhand Serenade. :) It's beautiful. Now onto the story, enjoy!


"Amu we need to talk. It's about us." The brunette's face was serious. The girl could tell by the way his green eyes never wavered from hers.

"Okay." He took her hand gently in his and led her away from her friends. The rosette looked back passing a worried look to both Rima and Yaya. None of them moved a single inch. The pair made it around a deserted corner of the school and sat down on a wooden bench. Kukai still held her hand in his and squeezed it before giving his speech.

"I don't think we should continue as... a couple right now. I think it's best for us to take a break and see if it will work a couple weeks from now. I hope you understand, Amu." He studied her face noticing the tears that were threatening to fall from her honey colored eyes. "Please don't cry. You know how much I hate it when you cry."

"H- How can I not cry? D- Di- Did I do something wrong? If I did I'm sorry I can be an idiot sometimes and I- I'm sorry!"

Kukai pulled Amu close and hugged her. "You didn't do anything wrong trust me. I'm the one who needs to get his priorities straightened out."

Amu pushed the boy off of her and quickly tried to wipe her tears away. "No this has something to do with Utau, doesn't it?"

He had to admit that response did surprise him but it wasn't Utau. He hasn't seen or heard from her in months. He got a few occasional texts from her saying she was fine and not to worry about her but that just wasn't it. "No it isn't Utau. You know I haven't spoken to her in awhile."

"It doesn't hurt to ask. I just know you two were real close before we started going out."

"Amu, she left for her tour and we are best friends, nothing more or less. Trust me."

The girl stood in front of Kukai. "I wish I could but I just can't wait for you to get your priorities straight."

"Amu please don't say that. You don't understand what is going on right now."

"Then tell me! What's your big secret?"

Kukai took a deep breath and stood alongside Amu, looking down into her eyes. "I will tell you when we get back together, I promise." Leaning down, he pressed his lips against hers. It was light and sweet, just the way Amu liked it, it was like saying 'see you soon.' He started pulling back when Amu got on her tippy toes and gave him a kiss of his own letting him know that if she had to, she would wait just for him. Both pulled away that time looking at each other before hugging, again.

Tears were gathering in Amu's eyes and before Kukai knew it, she dashed away right as the last bell rang for school to end. He watched as she ran in the direction of her house.

"I'm sorry, Amu." He whispered to himself.


I still couldn't believe that I made the choice to wait for him. It's been a whole week without one word from him. Maybe I should just text him and see what he is up to. But what if he doesn't answer me? God I don't know what to do.

Suddenly I felt my phone vibrate. I looked down and saw his name. It took me awhile to open the text.

Hey Amu! What's up? –Kukai

Hey. I'm just sitting in my room. How about you? –Amu

Oh nothing I just got done with soccer practice. How are you? –Kukai

How could he even ask that? I'm doing horrible because a week after our break up you act like nothing even happened!

I'm fine. You? –Amu

Why are you just fine? –Kukai

You should know. Idk. That's just how I feel. How are you? –Amu

Oh. I'm doing good. I made captain of the soccer team! :) –Kukai

That's great. –Amu

Well… I guess I will talk to you later. Goodnight Amu. –Kukai

Yeah goodnight. –Amu

I slammed my phone shut. I couldn't take it anymore. I went to bed absolutely sick to my stomach. All I knew was if he didn't want to get back together all I could do was move on and find someone new.


Kukai sat and stared at the background on his phone. It was the picture of their first date where he surprised her with a kiss on the cheek. Her cheeks were as bright as a tomato of course. Why was he so stupid? He knew she wouldn't be happy especially since he had been avoiding her for a whole week. He couldn't keep this up for long not like this, he would crack eventually.

Then the brunette heard voices downstairs yelling towards other voices that joined in. Why did this have to happen at a time like this? It was their fault for what had happened between him and Amu. His teeth clenched together as small tears began to collect in his eyes. He hated them and he wished it would all stop. Life wasn't worth it when everything seemed to be going wrong. Eventually, he too, decided to go to bed. He looked forward to seeing her face again.


Well that's the end of the first chapter! I'm trying to improve on my writing skills so tell me if I'm doing any better! I could use some advice haha. :p I'm super excited to be starting a new story and to be writing about a new couple. Just so you know I'm a fan of Amuto of course but I think there is way too much stories of them on here XD So the world needs more Kukamu lovin! ;)
