Love Hurts

Chapter One

What Happened

XxAmu's POVxX

I sighed as I walked into Easter, my glasses hiding my eyes so I wouldn't be mobbed by fans. Ran, Miki, Suu, and Dia flew behind me, all with X's on them. Ever since that day all five of us have been marked with an X and my whole life has changed.

XxFlashbackxX

I walked down the street, my pink hair flowing behind me and determination was written all over my face. I walked up to the Easter building and walked inside to find the director. I walked in and strode up to his desk.

"Hinamori Amu...you came." he said.

"Yes I did. I mean, why wouldn't I after you threatened my family and Ikuto." I said coldly. He had threatened to kill Ikuto and my family if I didn't join Easter...if I did, Ikuto would be let go and my family would be safe.

"Here's the contract Hinamori." he said, sliding a paper across the table to me.

I took a pen and read through it, and stopped at this one part of the fine print. It said:

You can tell three friends about this and only three and these three people can NOT tell anyone else so...choose wisely.

I hid my smile and signed the contract. The director smirked evilly and said, "Good. You start here tomorrow. Think carefully of who to tell Hinamori Amu." And with that, I left to go find Rima, Utau, and Nagihiko.

A few days after Ikuto's release from Easter he left Japan and I went into a depression, causing the X's on me and my charas. My hair turned black and my honey eyes dimmed to a darker shade of the brilliant bright honey that they used to be.

Ran now had ruby red hair and everything that was red on her outfit was now ruby red and everything that was pink is now black. Her eyes turned a blood red, and her pom-poms are black.

Miki's hair is black and so is the spade charm on her hat. All of her blue clothes darkened and she eyes are a deep midnight blue that are darker than Ikuto's.

Suu changed the most out of all of them in my opinion. Her hair is now a dark, dark brown and everything that was dark green is now a deep purple and everything that was white is now black.

Dia just reverted back to when she was with Utau. Her blonde hair, black clothing, and dark complexion all came back...like how she was when she had first hatched after being turned into an X-egg.

They all had a white X on their charms. I also gained a new shugo egg during the time we all got X's. It is a grey egg and it had the same pattern as the others but in the band were grey crosses.

(a/n: the pics for all of these will be on my profile)

XxEnd FlashbackxX

I walked into the office that they gave me and set my new, unhatched egg on the desk. I poked it and it felt warm.

"It'll be born soon." Dia said, putting her hand on it.

"I know." I replied.

I went to writing my songs while my charas sat calmly and watched me write. Oh I forgot to mention that they're personalities had changed a bit. Ran didn't really cheer anymore, Miki drew depressing pictures now, and Suu wasn't as motherly as she was before. In fact Suu rarely talks that much anymore. I sighed and started to write again.

XxIkuto's POVxX

I was walking through the streets of Japan. Amu would be so surprised to see me. I don't get why Easter fired me, but I'm happy they did. I heard a crowd talking about Amu and I looked up at the huge screen they had and my jaw dropped. There was Amu in a music video, singing a song called Round and Round (I do NOT own!) and then I saw that it was produced by the Easter Company. I realized just then that she had black hair and her eyes were darker now. There was also almost no emotion in her eyes, just a bit of pain and sadness in them, but other than that nothing.

I was seriously confused. Why is Amu working for Easter? I thought. I stood there and watched the rest of the music video.

You tried to pull me close
And whisper in my ear
You always told me lies
I cried out all my tears
I pushed my feelings to the side
But then you bring them back
B-bring them back
Now you got me singing

It showed her and some other guy and the guy pulled her to his chest and I felt a flare of jealousy. Then she pushed him away and there were tear stains on her face and it showed her singing.

Boy, I need you here with me
We can't go on this way
I'm falling hard for you
And all I can say

It was showing different angles of her singing this one part and she honestly looked hot...but I prefer her hair pink.

Love me or Love me not
I'm starring at the clock
I take them flower petals off
And then I watch them drop
Love me or Love me not
I'm starring at the clock
I take them flower petals off
And then I watch them drop

It now showed her sitting on a bench and she was picking off flower petals from a Lilly, then it showed a scene of her looking at a clock then back to her watching petals fall from the sky. It did that as she sang the same thing again.

Boy, I need you here with me
We can't go on this way
I'm falling hard for you
And all I can say

We're going round and round
We're never gonna stop
Going round and round
We'll never get where
We are going
Round and round
Well your gonna miss me
Cause I'm getting dizzy
Going round and round
Round and round

It did the same thing as before and it ended the song with her standing in front of a mic in a black strapless dress and high heels. An announcer came on then and was gushing over the video. Then what she said next made me very interested.

"Easter is having a contest to win front row seats to Hinamori Amu's next concert. It includes backstage passes and...you get to spend a whole day with this fantastic pop star!" I felt a smirk on my face. "So just come down to Easter Corporations and enter the contest! And you might even be made into a star yourself!"

I started to head towards where Easter was, a huge smirk planted on my face.

XxAmu's POVxX

I groaned. "Why do I have to help judge?" I asked.

"Because I said so. Now go down to the auditorium and judge your fans."

I grumbled as I walked out of the ass's office and went to the auditorium. I sat down in between two other judges, arms folded across my chest, and grumbling things about how big of an ass the director was.

A Few Hours into the Contest

I sighed. How long is this going to go on? I thought.

"Yo."

I looked up and my eyes widened at who I saw. Ikuto? I thought.

"What's your name sir?" one of the judges asked.

"Tsukiyomi Ikuto! What are you doing here?" My manager, Himiko, asked, standing up. She was also one of the judges.

"I just want to get tickets." he said, smirking.

That idiot! I free him and he comes back? What the hell? I screamed in my mind. I wanted to run up there and strangle him. I sighed. "Just get on with it. I'm tired of this crap." I said. Himiko and the judge both glared at me. "What? This is boring! I could be writing music right now. Not my fault that a- I mean director, wanted me to judge!" I complained.

"You should be more grateful to your fans Amu-chan!" Himiko said.

"She has a point you know." Ikuto said, sill smirking.

I groaned. "Just hurry up okay?" I asked, leaning back in my chair.

"Okay." he said. Then he started to sing One X by Three Days Grace. (a/n: I do NOT own!)

Do you think about
Everything you've been through
You never thought you'd be so depressed
Are you wondering
Is it life or death
Do you think that there's no one like you

I have to admit...he was pretty good.

We are
We are
We are
We are the ones
We get knocked down
We get back up and stand above the crowd
We are one
We are the ones
We get knocked down
We get back up and stand above the crowd
We are one

Okay I take that back...he was awesome...and sexy.

The life I think about
Is so much better than this
I never thought I'd be stuck in this mess
I'm sick of wondering
Is it life or death?

The life I think about

I never thought I'd be stuck in this mess

I need to figure out who's behind me

I was literally on the edge of my seat. It so happens that he was the last entry and he was by far the best. I looked at Himiko and the judge and we smiled at each other. I looked at Ikuto and smiled, actually smiled at him and said, "Congratulations...you win."

He smirked. "Great."

I got up, stretched and then started to leave and go to my office. "Wait Amu." Himiko said.

"What?" I asked, I was standing at the door, my hand on the handle.

"Take Tsukiyomi to your office and give him the tickets and set up a day for him to spend the whole day with you alright?"

I turned around. "What?"

"I said take Tsukiyomi-"

"I know what you said but I was never told that the winner had to spend a whole day with me!" I shrieked.

"Well I guess the director forgot to tell you then."

"Um...yeah!" I said. I sighed. "Alright come on Ikuto."

I left out of the room and Ikuto easily fell into step beside me. "Why did you join Easter?" he asked.

I tensed up a bit but continued walking. I had already told three people and even if I hadn't I still wasn't allowed to tell him. "I can't answer that question." I answered coldly.

We went into my office where Ran, Miki, Dia, and Suu were sitting on my desk and staring at the egg. I could feel Ikuto's shock as he saw my charas with X's on them.

"What happened?" he asked.

"Classified." I answered. I went over to my desk and grabbed out a ticket, a back stage pass, and a planner. "Okay so when do you want to spend the whole day with me then?" I asked.

"Tomorrow." he said.

"Okay." I answered and wrote it in my planner. I handed him the tickets. "Now get out." I said.

He slammed his hands down on the desk and leaned in towards me. I had flinched when he slammed his hands down and a light blush crept onto my face as he leaned in.

"I don't want to." he said.

Crack!

We both looked at my egg and there was a crack in it. I quickly picked it up carefully and watched as the crack grew bigger and then a chara popped out.

She had pure black hair with red streaks in it and icy blue eyes. She had on a strapless black dress with light blue swirls on it and black heels. She had black cat ears and tail with a blood red bow on her tail. She had black and red arm warmers with little crosses dangling at the end and a cross hair clip with a giant white X on top of the cross that was in her hair.

"Amu-chan. I'm Misuki. It's a pleasure to meet you." she said in a cute voice that sounded a bit like Dia's but a bit higher but not by much.

"Misuki..." I murmured.

"I'm Ran!"

"Suu -desu."

"I'm Miki."

"Hello. I'm Dia."

"Yo! I'm Yoru -nya!" Yoru had popped out of nowhere when Misuki had started to hatch.

"It's a pleasure to meet all of you." she said. She turned to Ikuto and gave him a glare. "You leave for five years and now you decided to come back? Do you know what you put Amu throu-"

I cut Misuki off by putting a finger over her mouth. "Misuki!" I said.

She shrank back. "Sorry Amu-chan. I forgot about that...issue."

"It's alright Misuki."

Ikuto looked confused. "Get out." I said.

He didn't move. "I said. Get. OUT!" I yelled and then he left. And now I'm all alone in my office, with my new chara. Then I started to cry, letting out all the emotions I've held back for so many years.
