"I knew that you would be here." A voice said. Tea didn't move nor did she answer.
She knew exactly who the voice belonged to and who the person standing behind her was, although it was still slightly dark as the dawn had not completely arrived.
She knew that she shouldn't want to see him, but she did. However, she controlled her emotions and pushed her desire to see him deep into her soul.
Neither moved for a few moments. All that could be heard was her breathing. In, out, in, out.
The rush and roar of the waterfall as it fell drifted back towards their ears, the cool mist shooting up at them.
"Tea, talk to me." Seto said, taking a step forward. She didn't move.
"Tea, please." She could hear the urgency in his voice. As much as it pained her heart, she showed indifference towards him.
"Tea!" This time he growled and grabbed her arm. She felt him pull at her and spin her around.
The minute she spun around, she cast her eyes downwards, hiding the tears threatening to pour.
"I am not Tea. You are mistaken." She said, not looking up. He looked down at her for a moment in surprise before scoffing.
"Really? You were so eager to be Tea a few days ago. Now, you have suddenly changed and decided that you are no longer Tea?" He asked. She shook her head, still not looking into his face.
"I was never Tea. I merely pretended. You saw through my plot, however." She said, her voice threatening to break.
"Do not lie. You were Tea then and you are still Tea now." He said. She shook her head, angry tears slipping down her face.
"No! I am not! Let me be! I am not Tea!" She yelled.
"Really?" He asked. Her eyes grew wide as he reached down and cupped her chin before raising her face to look at him.
"Then, why do you cry?" He whispered. Her eyes grew wide as he leaned down and pressed his lips to her own. He felt her shudder and pulled apart.
"I am sorry. I no longer have the right to do that." He said, removing his hands from her face. However, she shook her head and raised his hands to her face again.
"Kiss me." She whispered. He leaned down and claimed her lips with his own. She closed her eyes and pulled him closer. This kiss seemed different; it was sweeter and more passionate. She moaned into the kiss and his hands dropped to her waist.
She wrapped her hands arms around his neck as he pulled her hips closer to him.
"Seto," She breathed after they broke apart.
"Why did you leave?" He asked, looking down at her with sad eyes. She turned away and closed her eyes.
"I was a burden to you. You finally accepted the truth, but I refused to leave. I made it difficult for you." She said.
"Nay, you did not." He said, turning her face back towards him.
"I knew it was you." He said. She opened her eyes and gasped.
"What?" She breathed. He nodded.
"I knew it since the beginning. I was just in shock and part of me still doubted it. I knew that I did not deserve to have you back, especially after everything that I did to you." He said.
"But, why did you come after me then?" She asked. He turned and put his hand on her face.
"After you said the thing about the poison in the wine, I knew it was you for sure. I knew that you were going to leave me again. This time, however, I would not let you go." He said.
"Tea," He raised her hand to his lip and pressed a gentle kiss on her hand.
"I love you." He said, looking up at her. Tears formed in her eyes and slipped, trailing down her face. He shook his head and wiped them away with his thumb.
"Shh." He said, pulling her head into his chest. His arms encircled her and she wrapped her arms around him, unable to control her tears.
"I love you too." She pulled apart from her and, looking down at her face, pressed his lips to hers. Tea wrapped her arms around his neck and pulled herself towards him, deepening the kiss.
Seto dropped his hands to her waist and pulled her into him. She groaned slightly as he slipped his tongue into her mouth, but did not refuse him.
"Shall we return home?" He asked after they broke apart.
She looked up at him and, smiling, nodded.
"Aye. Let us return to our home." She smiled, taking his hand in her own. He smiled and reached down, grabbing her and picking her up.
Tea clung to his neck as he carried her bridal style to the horse.
The sun was beginning to rise in the distance, the beginning of a new day. Tea leaned against Seto's chest as they headed back to the manor.
Their lives would change now. They had learned how to love and trust each other. As long as they had each other, everything in life would be fine.
As long as Seto was at her side and she was at his, they would survive.
As long as they had love, they would survive. Tea knew that their love would survive anything because it had been proved already.
Their love had survived Kisara, Garrett, her 'death', and his coldness.
Seto looked down at Tea as she pushed herself closer against him and chuckled. He wrapped his arm around her.
He would always protect her. His wife. Not his property. Nay, his wife. The woman he loved.
"Se-Seto." Tea groaned as Seto entered her. He smiled and leaned down to plant a kiss on her lips. She wrapped her arms around his head and pulled him down, deepening the kiss.
She wrapped her feet around him and straddled him as he began to pump in and out of her. She let out a groan as he took one of her breasts in his mouth.
"Do you want to stop?" He asked, looking up. She shook her head and gestured for him to continue.
"Oh god!" She groaned as he resumed his rhythm.
An hour later, an exhausted Seto was lying in the bed, with a panting Tea sprawled on his chest.
"That was wonderful." Tea panted. She pushed herself onto her elbows and leaned down to plant a kiss on his lips. He chuckled and flipped her onto her back, claiming her lips for himself.
He slipped his tongue into her mouth and she did the same to him.
"Seto," She said after they broke apart for air.
"Yes, my love?" He asked, stroking her head.
"I have something to tell you." Tea said.
"What?" Seto asked, raising a curious eyebrow.
"Um, well, it is," She faltered, unsure whether to continue.
"What is it?" Seto asked, a shred of concern seeping into his voice.
"Well," Tea began but stopped.
She reached up and kissed him, reassuring him that it was nothing bad.
"What is it?" Seto asked.
"I am pregnant." Tea smiled. Seto's eyes grew wide in shock.
"You are?" He breathed. She smiled and nodded. A smile broke out on his face and he leaned down, kissing her passionately.
"Bertha believes that they are twins. A girl and boy." She smiled after they broke apart.
"Mai is also pregnant. We are to deliver at the same time." Tea smiled.
"Duke is hoping for Serenity to deliver not too long after us." Tea said. Seto looked down at her stomach and shook his head, surprised.
"Now our family is complete." He said, looking up at her while he placed his hand on her stomach. She smiled and nodded before leaning over to kiss him.
"I love you." She whispered.
"I love you too." Seto replied.
Tea yawned and closed the book.
It had been a beautiful story. She was sitting curled up on the couch, a blanket covering her feet. Rain could be heard pouring outside, the sky dark and the wind howling.
As she looked down at the book, tears flowed to her eyes.
How she wished she had a love story like Tia's and Seth's. However, that was not going to happen. Her love story was in ruins. It was gone.
Tear flowed to her eyes as she thought about Seto.
Their fight flashed back to her mind.
"How could you?" Tea screamed, tears pouring down her face. Seto looked at her and shook his head.
"I didn't do anything!" He said, shaking his head. Tea turned away, wiping the tears.
"Don't jump to conclusions." Seto said, shaking his head. She turned and looked at him, before shaking her head.
"Really? I was worried about you and decided to look for you. And what do I find? I find your car outside a stranger's house. Then I find you in a woman's house, in her bedroom, with your shirt off and her in a robe only. What am I supposed to believe?" Tea yelled.
"It was raining! I was wet. The car broke down and she was helping me. I needed to use the phone and she allowed me to. She gave me a towel. You're being stupid and thinking it was more than that!" Seto yelled.
"Oh, so now I'm stupid?" Tea growled, spinning around to face him. He sighed and shook his head. He knew she was angry and beyond reasoning.
"No, you're not. I just want you to believe me." He said, lowering his voice. She froze and shook her head before turning away.
"How can I believe you?" She asked, not looking at him.
"Tea, look at me." Kaiba said, walking over to her and taking her face in his hands. He turned her face so that she was looking into his eyes. Tears flowed to her eyes again as she stared into his sadness-filled cobalt eyes.
"How can I, Seto?" She asked, turning away from him. She pulled her arm out of his grasp.
"Just believe me." Seto pleaded with her, reaching out and grabbing her arm before she could leave.
"What would you do if you found me in another man's bedroom with my shirt off?" Tea asked, turning to face him. His eyes grew wide and he didn't answer.
"Exactly." She said, shaking her head sadly.
"I'm sorry Seto, but I can't be with you. Not now. I need to clear my mind." Tea said, shaking her head and turning away.
She pulled off the wedding ring on her ring finger and handed it to him.
"Maybe, we rushed things. Maybe, we jumped into marriage too quickly." She said sadly before turning and walking out of his house.
Tea closed her eyes and leaned her head back. It had been a day since their fight. She picked up her phone. He had already called her several times and left about 20 voice messages.
Suddenly, the lights flickered. She looked up and her eyes grew wide as the lights in the house all went out.
"Damn it!" She hissed, trying to get up. She tripped and landed on her knees. She moaned and heard something vibrating. She raised her hand and ran it along the couch.
She felt something vibrate and picked up her phone.
Seto was the name the phone showed. She paused, unsure whether she should answer or not. She took a deep breath before opening the phone.
"What?" She asked.
"I'm sorry." He said. She froze, taken by surprise at his apology.
"What?" She breathed.
"I'm sorry. I know I don't deserve you, but I just have to tell you one thing." He said.
"What?" She breathed, her voice barely audible.
"I love you." He said. Tea felt tears flow to her eyes and couldn't stop herself as they began to fall.
Suddenly, there was a roar of thunder. Tea gasped as the thunder sounded and saw the lightening flash in the sky.
"Oh god." She breathed. She let out a scream as thunder roared again.
"Don't be so scared. Fear doesn't look good on your face." Seto said.
"What?" Tea asked, confused at his words.
"Confusion isn't too appealing either." He said.
"What? What are you saying?" She asked, confused. She raised her head and gasped. Thunder sounded and lightening flashed.
As it flashed, it illuminated outside. She saw a figure standing outside through the glass door that led into her backyard.
"Wha-" Tea breathed in shock as she got to her feet.
The lightening illuminated the sky again and she gasped.
"Seto." She gasped, dropping the phone.
Standing outside in the rain was Kaiba. Raindrops could be seen falling from his chestnut hair. It was wet and hung over his eyes, shading them.
His clothing was soaked, his white shirt clinging to his well muscled chest. In his hand was his cellphone. His eyes were directed at Tea, who was looking back at him with a shocked expression.
He closed the phone and looked at her.
Tea shook her head before running to the door and opening it.
"What are you doing? You're gonna get sick!" She yelled, running over to him with an umbrella.
"I wanted to see you." Seto said, looking down at her. Her eyes grew wide and she took her attention off of the umbrella.
The wind howled and blew before snatching the umbrella from her hands.
However, Tea didn't seem to notice the umbrella as it flew away from her. Her eyes were focused on Seto, who was looking down at her.
"Tea, I'm-" Seto began before Tea shook her head and pressed her finger to his lips.
"Shh, don't say anything else." She whispered. She reached up and wrapped her arms around his neck, pulling him close to her.
"I'm sorry I didn't believe you. I should have realized you wouldn't cheat on me." She whispered into his ear.
"Seto, I-" Tea began after they broke apart before Kaiba silenced her with his lips.
She closed her eyes and pulled him closer to her, enjoying their kiss. She could feel the raindrops soaking her clothing but she didn't care.
She was back with Seto.
"I love you." Seto whispered to her after they broke apart.
"I love you too." Tea smiled up at him. He chuckled and picked her up bridal style. Thunder roared again and she gasped. Seto wrapped his arms around her and she shuddered, clinging to him.
"Your fear of thunder is horrible." Seto commented as they entered the house. She buried her face in his chest before nodding.
"I dislike thunder. You know why." She whispered. He nodded and set her down on the couch.
"I'll go and light the fireplace." He said, walking towards the fireplace. She closed her eyes as he lit it.
Warmth and light immediately filled the room. She opened her eyes and saw Seto's face staring down at her. A smile was on his lips.
"Set-Seto! Se-Seto!" Tea yelled as he pumped in and out of her.
"Is it too much?" Seto asked, reducing his speed before completely stopping. She shook her head.
"No. It feels amazing." She moaned. He chuckled and resumed.
"Oh god. I'm gonna die." Tea groaned as he continued. He chuckled and planted a kiss on her lips.
"Not yet." He smirked. He increased the speed and she threw her head back, groaning in pleasure.
"Oh god." She breathed. Her breaths came in quick pants.
"Harder." She whispered, straddling him. He increased the speed while she bucked her hips, following his rhythm. She moaned in ecstasy.
"Harder!" She yelled. She let out a scream as he plunged deep inside her.
"Se-Seto!" She screamed as he pumped into and out of her with intense speed.
Finally, she felt him release before he collapsed on top of her.
"That was amazing." Tea said as he lay on top of her, breathing in exhaustion.
"Now, for your reward." Tea smirked, pushing him into his back. She climbed on top of him and grabbed his member in her hand.
He groaned as she pulled at it.
"Te-Tea." Seto moaned as Tea leaned down and took him in her mouth.
"Sto-Stop. Te-Tea." Seto groaned as she continued to move back and forth. He hissed and bucked his hips, pushing himself deeper into her mouth.
"Te-Tea. Let go." Seto groaned. However, she didn't. Instead, she increased her speed.
"Tea! Let go before I cum!" Seto yelled. She increased the speed again.
"Tea!" Seto yelled, feeling his release coming. She released him just as he released his sperm. She chuckled as he lay there, groaning in ecstasy. He looked up at her and growled before pulling her down and pushing her onto her back.
"Seto!" Tea screamed as he made his way downwards to her womanhood. She closed her eyes and screamed as his tongue entered her.
"Se-Seto!" She yelled, the throbbing between her legs biting at her. His tongue continued to roam, making her insane with pleasure.
"Seto! Oh god!" Tea groaned, pulling his head into her.
He chuckled and made his way upwards, his mouth memorizing her body.
She groaned as he took her left nipple into his mouth while his right hand pinched her right nipple.
He switched before placing kisses on her neck.
Finally, his lips arrived at her own. He smiled before plunging his tongue into her mouth.
She closed her eyes and groaned as he kissed her. She slipped her tongue into his mouth and pulled him closer. He raised her off of the ground, pulling her into him, as if wishing for them to melt into each other.
Both broke apart after a while for air.
Tea smiled at Seto as he wrapped his arms around her.
"I love you." She whispered, leaning her head on his chest.
"I love you too." He smiled, placing a kiss on her forehead.
The shadow of the fireplace fire danced on the faces of Tea and Seto as they watched the fire, together in each other's arm.
Thunder sounded outside while rain continued to pour. The light from their house could be seen from a distance, shining through the storm.
The fire, however, wasn't the only thing that was illuminating the room they were in.
The brightest light in the room was their love, which shined brighter than any star and warmer than any fire.
