Warning: This is my first time writing in present-tense. So bare with me...
I don't miss him.
No matter what anyone thinks.
Amu thinks I'm in denial, but I'm not.
Why would I be? I don't even like him.
He's my enemy! Nothing else.
Everyone knows that I say that, but they don't listen.
They(Amu and Yaya) are always trying to set us up.
Besides, why would I like someone who kissed me, on the LIPS,
Even though I really liked it.
Why did he do that anyway? To anger me? Well too bad for him,
'cause it didn't work.
And I still don't miss him.
I sigh as I lay on my bed, awake. If I don't miss him, then why do I feel so alone?
I'm not saying I don't acknowledge my friends'(The Guardians) company, it's just, it feels weird without him here.
I tilt my head to face my bed-side table that my cell was on, and saw that it was blinking.
I had turned the ring off since it's around midnight, and didn't want to wake my parents or Kusukusu.
I sit up and grab it, then flip it open and answer it without even glancing at the caller ID.
I already have an idea on who it could be. It was probably Amu calling me to help convince me of my "denial".
"Amu, for the LAST time: I'M NOT IN DENIAL!" I whisper harshly, laying back down.
I hear a chuckle that sounds nothing like Amu. It sounds like a boy, but it is slightly feminine.
"Okay, either you don't have caller ID or you were too lazy to look at it."
My eyes widen slightly and feel a smile tug at my lips. I quickly return to my usual passive expression.
"I wish to know why you've called me, cross-dresser." I say in my usual monotone.
"I wanted to talk to you. There; your wish is granted. Should I go back into my bottle now?" He says sarcastically.
"Shut up, you sarcastic freak." I roll my eyes. "You DO realize it's a little past midnight, right?" I question.
"It's not midnight in France."
"Awww. So now I'm a jerk for wanting to talk to my little Rima-tan?" He says then chuckles slightly.
I blush then whisper harshly, "Just tell me what you wanted to talk to me about!"
"Ooh, feisty. I wanted to know how you were."
I blink blankly. "I'm...fine?" I say, it sounding more like a question than a statement.
"Why do you care?" I ask.
"Because I care about you, Rima-chan."
I blush again then glare at the ceiling. Why does he keep doing this?
Making me feel really...weird.
"Stop it." I whisper almost inaudibly.
"What?" He asks, confused.
"Stop it!" I shout, absolutely frustrated and confused. Obviously I was loud enough to wake my Shugo Chara, since she lifted the top of her egg open and peeked out at me.
"Rima...?" She questions groggily but I ignore her.
"Stop what?" Nagihiko asks.
"I don't miss you, okay?" I shout again, feeling my eyes get wetter every second.
Why did that sound so much like a lie? And why am I getting so worked up?
It took a few seconds for Nagihiko to respond, and when he did my heart sank.
"Well that's too bad, because I miss you." He said it very quietly, but I could clearly hear the hurt in his voice. "Bye, Rima-cha-"
"Wait!" I squeak, "Don't hang up yet!"
"Why?" He says bitterly, "'Cause you obviously don't want to talk to me."
"No, I'm just..." I trail off and sigh, hugging my pillow tightly. "I'm just... confused." I whisper,
feeling my eyes get wet again.
"About what?" He questions gently.
I blush before asking, "Why did you kiss me before you left for France?"
It took a few seconds for him to reply.
"I thought that would be obvious, Rima-chan." He says and I blush, knowing what he meant.
"Oh..." I trail off, smiling in spite of myself.
"Yeah..." He trails off, clearing his throat awkwardly.
"Nagi?" I say very quietly, half hoping he doesn't hear me.
"Yeah?" I guess he heard.
"I liked it..." I trail off again, blushing furiously.
"Liked what?" He asks.
"The kiss." I answer. I was more than sure I resembled a fire truck.
There was silence.
"Me too." He says, I could practically hear his smile in his voice.
I flip my phone closed and stare at it.
"Turns out Amu was right." I groan and cover myself up, ready to go to sleep.
I feel my eyes get heavier and heavier and I let out a small yawn as I close my eyes.
"But...I still...don't...miss...him..." I murmur before falling asleep.
Kusukusu tilts her head, shrugs, then re-enters her egg.
Shidonii: I honestly think that could've been sooooo much better. TT-TT
Rima: Then why didn't you make it better?
Shidonii: I'm not professional, dammit! Oh well... it came out ALOT better than when I wrote it down for the first time.
Nagihiko: R&R! ^^
