Just a note:

"Anything in quotes like this," and then written like this is in Jaden's mind. Most italics are that way

"Anything in quotes like this," And then plain text like this is someone singing.

I dreamed a dream (Dedicated to Sakural7865 and Ari-chan and ReNA)

"You next then?" Haou said, glaring at Axel as soon as Jim went to the stars. Haou tried not to flinch as he felt eyes boring into the back of his head. He knew that Jehu must have been watching. Boy, he was going to be in for it now…

Haou smirked as Axel ran away, screaming. Haou simply turned and went back inside the castle. As he climbed the stairs, he saw Jehu standing outside the throne room, waiting for him. Haou kept his eyes straight forward and walked right past Jehu, continuing his climb up to his Chambers. He heard Jehu growl and follow him, but decided to stay silent until he heard the doors to his room close. He quickly whipped around to Jehu and glared at him.

"Not. A. Word," Haou snapped, making Jehu snap his mouth shut and glare at the brunet.

"Too bad," Jehu snapped back, watching as the brunet stripped himself of his armor. "You almost lost back there!"

"But I didn't," Haou clipped as he pulled on his plain black cloak.

"One reckless move and you would have!" Jehu snapped. "I almost lost you back there!"

For some reason, this made Haou angry. Jehu never seemed to care before. Haou whipped around to look the bluenet straight in the eyes. The concern that he saw in his orange orbs just added fuel to the fire.

"And why do you care?" Haou snapped back.

"Because I—!" Jehu cut himself off when he realized what he was about to say. He couldn't say that! Sure, they had a bit of a backwards relationship, if one could even call it that. They rarely ever showed affection, even in private, yet they usually shared a bed at night. They only time they didn't was when they were out on raids. Jehu was starting to get frustrated with it, too. Maybe starting this with Haou was a bad idea. But, something in him said that it wasn't.

"You…?" Haou prompted, taking a seat on the bed.

"Never mind," Jehu muttered, turning away from Haou. "Forget I said anything."

"That's not going to work this time," Haou said, trying to control himself. He was starting to get pissed off now. "Tell me what you were going to say!"

"If it will make you shut up, then fine. I…" Jehu took a deep breath and ran a hand through his thick, blue hair. He turned back to Haou, looking at the king with soft, orange eyes. "I think I may be in love with you."

Jaden jolted when he heard that said. He looked at one of the windows of his Soul Room, desperately searching for the source of the voice. He the one that made it possible for Jaden to see what was happening with Haou. Standing there in front of him was Jesse! Jaden knew it. He knew that Jesse was alright.

"Say that one more time?" Haou chocked out, feeling his throat constricting. Jaden held his breath and watched Jesse, straining his ears incase he missed when Jesse said.

"I think I love you," Jehu said, giving Haou a soft smile.

Haou gasped slightly and felt a mad blush come to his face. He looked down so that his bangs hid his blush and tried to calm down. He needed to think rationally. But, it was hard. The one person that managed to melt the ice in his heart just confessed his love. Haou wanted to say something, but he felt his voice die in his throat.

Jaden was in shock. He didn't know what to think. Jaden had known for a while that he loved Jesse. But, upon the fear of being rejected, Jaden resulted to ostracizing himself as much as possible. He didn't want to be hurt, but he must have been hurting Jesse as well. That explained all the sad and longing looks Jess was sending his way during their duel against Marcel. Jaden wanted to beat himself for being such an idiot.

"Please say something," Jehu said, looking rather uncomfortable. Haou had been quiet for war too long. Jehu knew it was a bad idea.

"I don't know what to say," Haou admitted softly.

"Look, if you hate me, just say so," Jehu said, looking down at the ground.

"No, I don't hate you… I could never hate you…" Haou said, surprising himself a little. "In fact… I think that… I may feel the same…"

"Really?" Jehu asked. He was the epitome of hopeful.

"No, Jesse don't listen to him!" Jaden cried from his prison, pounding on the invisible walls. "Jesse, that's not me! Please, don't listen, it's not me!"

"Of course it's not you, that's why he said it," Haou said, appeared behind Jaden. "Didn't you hear him, he said he loved ME. Not you."

"No…" Jaden breathed, looking at Haou in shock. "You're lying!"

"You heard it with your own ears!" Haou snapped, chuckling a little. "And I'll make sure you see this until the end."

Jaden blinked and Haou was gone. However, when he tried to take a step forward to where he was, darkness surrounded Jaden and forced him around until he was facing the window. He darkness engulfed him and made it so that the only place Jaden could look was straight ahead.

"Yes, really," Haou said, finally lifting his head with a soft smile. He stood and sauntered over to Jehu and wrapped his arms around Jehu's neck. "I love you."

Jehu smiled and leaned down, capturing Haou's lips in a passionate kiss. That kiss very quickly turned into a full blown make out. Haou moaned into the kiss, letting the pent up feelings of lust within him loose. He pressed himself closer to Jehu, wanting to feel every inch of the older male. Jehu, in turn, tightened his hold on the brunet, deepening the kiss.

Jaden felt his heart constriction as he watched the two. He wanted to scream. He wanted to rip Haou away and kiss Jesse himself. He wanted to tell Jesse he loved him. But now… Haou was right… Jesse didn't love him. Jaden tried to tear his eyes away from the sight. He wanted to cover his ears so that he didn't have to hear the moans of the two royals. He found that he couldn't even close his eyes. Thus, he watched as Jesse pushed Haou onto the bed, gently breaking the kiss.

"Is something wrong?" Haou asked, panting from the kiss. Jehu got up and walked to the door. Haou nearly panicked until he heard the sound of the lock clicking into place.

"We don't want to be interrupted like last time, now do we?" Jehu asked, smirking as he walked back over to the bed and pounced on Haou. "Now where were we?"

Haou smiled and pulled Jehu down for another searing kiss. Jehu's tongue was instantly in Haou's mouth, mapping out the moist cavern. Jehu smirked when he felt the same feeling that he did several months ago when they first kissed. It was invigorating. Jehu began to undo the stop of Haou's cloak and pulled it open a bit. With one last sharp suck on Haou's tongue, he broke the kiss and began to kiss and nip at the brunet's neck. Haou tightened his grip on Jehu and buried his fingers in the blue mane as Jehu began to suck on his pulse. He whimpered as Jehu completely undid his cloak and ran his hands down his torso.

"Does this feel nice, Haou?" Jehu asked, brushing his hands all over Haou's exposed chest. Haou nodded, unable to speak at the moment.

Jaden felt his heart clench again. Jesse… Knew that that wasn't him. He knew it wasn't Jaden. Haou really was right after all… Jaden felt his tears slide down his cheeks. He let out a few sobs as he realized that everything he felt would go to waste. Jesse didn't love him. Jaden wanted to crawl into a hole and die.

Haou gasped as he felt Jehu's tongue swirl around his nipple, making it hard almost instantly. He couldn't believe how good this was feeling. He completely forgot about his little plan with Jaden and sunk himself completely into this intense pleasure.

"Jehu, please… stop teasing…" Haou moaned as Jehu began his ministrations on the other nipple. "I want… no, I need you… now…"

"All in good time," Jehu snickered. He then stroked Haou's member through his pants and chuckled. "Excited, are we?"

Haou gasped as he felt Jehu's hand slip into his pants, cupping his manhood in his boxers. Haou gasped at the contact and tried to squirm away from it. But Jehu held him in place as he started to stroke his member through the boxers. Haou moaned loudly, tossing his head back as he gave in to the ministrations. Jehu drunk in the sounds that his partner was making, feeling himself getting a serious boner from the moaning alone.

Haou reached up and began to undo the many buckles and straps on Jehu's jacket, wanting to see the same amount of skin that Jehu was seeing on him. Jehu moved to kiss him again and shrugged his leather off his shoulders while Haou pulled his cloak off himself. Jehu sat up on his haunches as he pulled his shirt over his head. As soon as the fabric was up, Haou also sat up and began to kiss and lick at Jehu's chest, making the bluenet shudder. Jehu smirked and let Haou work for a few more seconds before he pushed him back down and crushed their lips in a kiss. Haou moaned into the kiss as their clothed erections brushed against each other. They broke the kiss for a second to catch their breath and stared at each other.

Jehu couldn't take it anymore. Just one look at Haou flushed, needy face sent the bluenet over the edge. He pulled off Haou's pants and boxers in one fluid motion and tossed them into the growing pile of clothing. Haou shivered as he felt the cold air hit his hot skin. He felt overly exposed under the predatory gaze of the bluenet and blushed a million shades of red and closed his eyes. He could feel Jehu's eyes wandering all over his body. He felt the bluenet lean next to his ear.

"Hmmmm, powerful AND sexy," Jehu purred. "A dangerous combination."

"You bet," Haou said with a smirk. "I'd like to see what you look like, if you don't mind."

"All in good time," Jehu said with a smirk.

Jehu began to kiss and lick his way down Haou's torso, making the brunet writhe under his touch. He continued to go lower until his tongue brushed over the tip of Haou's length. Haou squeaked and buried his hands in Jehu's hair again as he started to swirl his tongue over it, nipping at the tip ever so slightly. His tongue then went downwards, wrapping around Haou's length, then sliding up and down...

Haou couldn't take it anymore. This was both far beyond pleasurable but torture at the same time. Jehu was just playing with him, he could FEEL it! Haou moaned as Jehu continued, trailing his tongue up one side of his length and back to the top to nip down again. Haou moaned loudly when Jehu swallowed him whole. Jehu got into an alternating pattern of sucking and biting, which had a certain uke eliciting all kinds of sounds. Just before Haou came, Jehu pulled away, making Haou whine in protest.

"Stop teasing," Haou whined, half glaring at Jehu. Jehu just chuckled and pressed three fingers to Haou's mouth.

"Suck," Jehu said, giving Haou the look that said, 'don't argue'.

Haou sighed inwardly and obliged. He took the three lithe fingers into his mouth and began to coat them with his own saliva. Jehu bit back his own moan, wishing that he could put Haou surprisingly skillful mouth to better use...

Jehu pulled his fingers out, hearing a small whimper coming from the brunet. He teased Haou legs apart, a smirk seeming to be plastered onto his face. He gently teased the brunet's hole, making his gasp. Jehu attached his mouth to Haou's pulse, making Haou moan again. Jehu distracted the teen as he slowly pushed one finger in.

Haou cried out in pain, squirming at the feeling of something inside him. It was very foreign and uncomfortable. Jehu held Haou's hips down, stopping his squirming as he gently pushed in another finger. Haou cried out again as Jehu started a scissoring motion, stretching the virgin hole. Haou clung to Jehu as the bluenet pushed in another finger, widening the hole as far as it would go.

"You love teasing, don't you?" Haou growled and Jehu pulled his fingers out.

"No, I love you," Jehu said with a smile as he kissed Haou again.

Jehu gently pushed himself inside, making both cry out, Haou in pain, Jehu in pleasure. Jehu stopped when he was buried hilt deep in that sweet, and oh so tight, heat that was Haou. Haou tightened his grip on Jehu's shoulders, nails digging into his skin. He moaned breathlessly and squeezed Jehu's shoulders, trying to tell the bluenet to move. Jehu got the hint and started to move in and out of his lover oh so very slowly. And oh so very slowly, the dull pain that Haou felt started to turn to a pleasure that the bluenet had never felt before. Jehu began to speed up a little and Haou rolled his hips to meet him at every thrust, sending even more intense waves of pleasure crashing over each of them. And, it was when Haou moaned even louder than before that Jehu knew he hit the brunet's sweet spot. Jehu smirked and aimed for that spot every time, making Haou see stars in his vision. The hands on Jehu's shoulders started to dig in even deeper, and Jehu knew that there would be a few ugly marks there in the morning. But right then he really didn't care as he heard Haou screaming his name as he came. Jehu followed soon after, moaning the brunet's name softly.

As they finished, Jaden was finally released from the darkness. He collapsed onto his knees and let his tears flow freely. He couldn't believe he just watched that. He watched the man that he loved have sex with someone else. He couldn't take it. He couldn't stand this intense pain in his chest. It was too much to live with, but not enough to make him die. But Jaden wanted to now. He so desperately wanted to.

Jaden was once again reminded of all the things that had happened. His friends disappearing, Syrus hating him, and now this. Jaden couldn't do anything right. He couldn't save his friends from Bron, and he couldn't save Jesse from being trapped here. Now, he couldn't even tell Jesse how he felt…

Haou sat on his throne, head tilted back until it touched the back of the chair, legs crossed in a regal manner, hands clenching the arm rests for dear life. He tried to stop the tears from coming. But just the thought made him grip the hastily written note in his hand even tighter. He looked down at it again, just to make sure that he read it right.

My dearest Haou,

I can't help but feel that this is goodbye. There is something that needs my immediate attention, and I'm not sure when I will be returning to you. I have a feeling that I won't be. I don't know why, and I can't say how, but I feel as if something terrible is going to happen soon. I feel that it will be the end of one of us. I'm sorry that I couldn't say goodbye to you in person. It was rather early when I had to leave, and I didn't want to disrupt your sleep. I'll return as soon as I can, I promise.

I love you.


Just rereading the note made Haou's eyes prick with tears. He didn't want to believe it. No, he couldn't believe it. He didn't want this to be goodbye, not yet… He folded the letter and placed it in a pocket on the inside of his cloak as he stood.

"I dreamed a dream in time gone by," Haou said softly as he walked out of the throne room. He took a quick look around and noticed that no one was there. Of course not, he ordered every to say out of the castle that day. He began to descend the stairs, a little slower than usual. "When hope was high and life worth living. I dreamed that love would never die! I dreamed that God would be forgiving…

"And I was young and unafraid, and dreams were made and used, unwasted. There was no ransom to be paid! No song unsung to wine untoasted…"

Haou stepped off the last step and into the main hall. Again, there was no one there, and he was glad. He could vent in peace…

"But the tigers come at night…" Haou continued as he walked across the room. "With their voices soft as thunder! And they tear your world apart, as they turn your dreams to shame!"

Haou went to open the door on the other side of the room when he heard voices. He opened it just a crack and looked through, seeing most of his advisors there chatting. He closed the door silently and leaned against the wall, wrapping his arms around himself in a futile attempt to keep himself together.

"He slept a summer by my side…" Haou breathed, seeing Jehu's face appear before him. "He filled my days with endless wonder… He took my childhood in his stride! But he was gone when autumn came…"

Haou couldn't take it anymore. He bolted back up the stairs, ignoring the strange looks of the lingering servants. He went right into his room and closed the doors locking them tight. As he looked around, he felt tears sting his eyes, but he didn't let them fall.

"And still I dream he'll come to me!" Haou cried, walking towards the balcony. "And we will live our years together... But there are dreams that cannot be! And there are storms we cannot weather!" Haou threw the doors to the balcony open, letting the harsh winds of that day fly in, making his hair shift and his cloak flutter behind him. "I had a dream my life would be… So different from this Hell I'm living! So different now from what it seemed!" Haou backed away from the doors and leaned against the wall, sliding down to sit on the floor. He realized in a slip second that this was where he and Jehu first kissed… "Now life has killed… the dream I dream…."

Haou pulled his legs up to his chest and finally permitted his tears to flow. He didn't make a sound, just let himself cry in the same spot where it all began. He pulled out the note again, the note he got nearly a week ago, but refused to look at until that day. He wanted to tear it in half. But he kept it, as a last memento of him. He folded it up again and put it in his cloak's inner pocket, close to his heart. He would wait. He would wait for Jehu to come back, even if it meant that he would wait in the stars…
