NOTE: I'm ba-a-ack! :D Did you miss me? Well, as promised, here is the sequel to the story "Reaching for the Moon." I actually found myself struggling with this story a little (THERE'S SO MANY THINGS THAT NEED/I WANT TO HAPPEN!) and so my updating, may be a little slower than the other story. May is the key word...

This story is in Yamato's POV. Because of that I will be naming the chapters after songs that I feel fit with the chapter. I most likely will also include a verse or two from the actual song. And yes...it is a bit angsty...but there is a LOT more Taito action in this story than the first one! I promise.

With out further ado, here is the Prologue to my new fanfic, "Patience."

WARNINGS: Swearing, angst and slash. Slash? Yes. Don't like it? Don't read it.

DISCLAIMER: "If I Owned Digimon." By Psycho Weasel. "If I owned Digimon, Tai and Matt would have done many naughty things together and gotten together at the end. Also Tai wouldn't have given up his goggles! The end." Moral of the sad story: I don't own Digimon.


PROLOGUE-Patience

I was in love with Taichi Yagami. Really…I was. And I know that he was in love with me.

But when you're separated for a long period of time, I guess things start to change. People start to change. He decided to be with Sora and in return, and slight revenge, I decided to be with Peter. Peter was a good guy, he really was. I never would have suspected things to fall down hill...At first, he made me feel like I was worth something and told me he loved me more than anything…more than anyone ever would.

"I love you more than anyone ever has or will." That was always his excuse. Honestly, I believed it. First it was my parents splitting up, then Takeru, and then Taichi…once Taichi abandoned me, I was a wreck. So when Peter stepped in and treated me like he cared for me and always wanted to stay by my side, I couldn't help but to believe what ever he said. Even when he'd shout at me...even when he'd isolate me from almost everyone else...even when he'd hit me…I still believed him. Every single word. Words that would be branded into my soul and heart forever.

I knew that I had trapped myself in a personal prison cell. I was constantly worried that if I did something wrong, he would hurt me. If I spent too much time with my grandmother, he would think that I was cheating on him and wouldn't talk to me for a long period of time. And when he would talk to me, it was of how he was the only one who really cared and worried about me and that if I didn't do what he said that he would leave me. I should have been the one to leave…but I am weak and stupid. I wasn't strong enough to tell him no or to stand up for myself. I'm never strong enough…but Taichi was strong. That's something I liked about him.

Peter didn't think so however. Taichi obviously wasn't strong enough to wait for me a full year. He wasn't strong enough to pick up a damn paper and pencil and write to me. He wasn't strong enough to show any interest in his so-called "best friend." Taichi wasn't strong in Peter's eyes…but sometimes I thought that maybe what Peter feared was that the bond Taichi and I had been too strong. Stronger than what I'd ever had with anyone…Peter always was the jealous type.

Peter. Boarding school. The United States. That is all behind me now. Now I had to face Japan, high school, and Taichi. I don't think I still feel anything for him, Peter made sure of that…but what if he did still feel something for me? What if Taichi really did love me still? What if he was still willing to fight for me? What if…

No. Don't be stupid Yamato. He gave up on me and I gave up on him. There is nothing left to hold on to. Besides, I'm not ready or willing to love again. Not yet...not after Peter…I can't…

Patience. That is what I needed from everyone now more than ever. I needed patience so that the scars would heal. I needed patience so that I could trust myself to have another relationship with anyone. I needed patience…and I know that that is something that Taichi can never give me.

oXoXoXo

Just have a little patience
I'm still hurting from a love I lost
I'm feeling your frustration
Any minute all the pain will stop.

Just hold me close inside your arms tonight
Don't be too hard on my emotions.

[Chorus:]
'Cause I
Need time
My heart is numb, has no feeling
So while I'm still healing
Just try and have a little patience.

I really wanna start over again
I know you wanna be my salvation
The one that I can always depend.

I'll try to be strong
Believe me I'm trying to move on
It's complicated but understand me.

[Chorus]

'Cause the scars run so deep
It's been hard but I have to believe
Just have a little patience [x2]

[Chorus]

Have a little patience
My heart is numb, has no feeling
So while I'm still healing
Just try and have a little patience

"Patience"

-Take That

NOTE:

...so for this song I just decided to put the whole song lyrics in. I'd actually advise you to look up the song and listen to it. I think it's more powerful than the text itself. If you look on my page, there is also a link to the music video that inspired this story (and also so inspired "R4M"). I know it's short, and I know you're mad, and I know you're confused...but please bare with me on these first few chapters. Like I said, all will reveil itself in good time.

Tell me what you think! Good? Bad? WTF? Flames will be used to roast weenies!

I have a feeling people are going to jump at me and be like, "WTF? I THOUGHT YOU SAID THIS WAS A TAITO STORY? WHO THE HELL IS THIS GUY?" Let me explain...this story, the whole story, has to deal with the subject of date abuse. I'm not trying to offend anyone, and I'm not trying to make fun of it or anything. I just decided that taking on this topic will give me sort of a challenge and a decent story plot. If you don't like this subject, please go find another story that will satisfy you better. Please give this story a chance.
