Author's Note: I don't own anything Soul Eater related, nor do I own the characters, as much as I would like to… yet again. This is Chapter 3.
I hadn't made this note in the previous chapters because it had completely slipped my mind. "Allow Me To Cure You" was originally a one-shot consisting of a good and bad ending, which is now Chapter's 1 and 2. I had a whole bunch of ideas running around in my head, and thanks to some inspiration and encouragement, I decided to continue with the story. I removed the bad ending, since it seemed to be really frowned upon, and implemented the good ending at the end of what is now Chapter 2.
If you had already read AMTCY in its one-shot form, thank you so very much. Especially if you enjoyed it and left/messaged me a review. It's thanks to you guys that I really wanted to continue this.
If you had already read AMTCY in its one-shot form, and continued to read it over and over again, I love you guys so very very much, and I'm glad you enjoyed it to the extent of re-reading it. I, again, state that I've never written anything like this before, so I'm glad it's being received so well.
If you came here from Apoc326's suggestion from his story "Your Guardian Soul"... Hi! Glad you're here.
If you're just now reading AMTCY in it's new, chaptered form... Welcome! I really hope you're enjoying the story thus far.
I'm going to try to take this story as far as possible, since it does run the course of the anime, de-railing just before (or barely into) the Rachel-dusa Saga (as I call it) which is the 2nd half of the series, after the Kishin is revived. Yes, I do read the manga, but the anime is allowing me to take some creativity into my own hands, and split it from the point I stated earlier, to become a story of it's own, following Stein and Medusa. There will more than likely be a collaboration story mixed in further down the road.
If you've read all this without skipping straight into the story, +10 to you for reading my ramblings! I'm going to end this now so we can get on with the story.
"Okay, so let me make this absolutely crystal clear…" she shifted her shoes looking at the obnoxious blue haired boy. The look on her face was as if she was about to scold her own child, "Next time you're hurt, you don't come barging in here like you own the place. Understand?"
Black Star rubbed the back of his neck, looking at the ground, avoid Medusa's stare. Clearly he didn't want to look at her, after what he had seen. He understood perfectly what Medusa was asking of him, but his ego wasn't about to let him down, "Yeah sure… whatev. When I surpass God, it'll be another thing comin'! YAHHOOO!" he jumped up, as enthusiastic as ever, with his usual Black Star laugh, and ran his way out the clinic.
Medusa stood, shaking her head. That boy was going to crush someone with his ego one day, and she was sure of it. Stretching slightly, she began to pick up and dispose of the mass amounts of bloody gauze and bandages that she had used on Black Star, blushing momentarily when she glanced at the hospital bed, having a small flash back of her time with Stein that morning.
"If this is a dream, don't let me wake up…" she spoke aloud momentarily, and dropped her lab coat to her shoulders, stretching once more, her bracelets shifting around her wrists with little noise.
As the day progressed, only a few other students came in. One with an upset stomach, a few with a couple of scrapes, bruises and some strange girl with some obsessive paranoia that someone was following her. Thankfully that didn't last too long, and the girl was on her way after realizing that Medusa was not a shrink, let alone the best person to talk to about your problems. Ever.
Her golden-yellow eyes glanced over at the clock and from her lips came an exasperated sigh. 5PM. Most of the students would've gone home by now, and it was time for the clinic to close anyway.
He hadn't returned.
"I knew he was playing me…" she spoke to herself, and hung up her lab coat for the day. Normally this type of behavior would be strange for Medusa, but today she felt like she needed change of pace. Death City, Nevada was a hot place. Who would wan to wear a lab coat all day? She grabbed the few things she would carry home in a small bag, and started to make her way towards the door, "Drat… where are those keys…" she dug deep into her bag, but remembered that the keys were on the desk. Walking over, she picked them up, and twirled them around her index finger.
"Leaving so soon, Medusa?"
Glancing over her shoulder, she blushed softly upon hearing his voice, "Welcome back, Stein."
"My pleasure…" he grinned as she turned around to look at him. He was still without his shirt and seemed rather sweaty from the day itself, "You have a different presence about you without that lab coat of yours on..."
"Flattery will get you no where, Stein." she retorted.
"My dear, Medusa... someone like you should know that flattery can get you almost anywhere." he stepped forward to her, his gaze practically piercing her soul as he looked down into her eyes, "On another note, I've come to retrieve my shirt from you."
"Right…" she reached behind a curtain where she had hidden it, neatly folded, and handed it to him hesitantly. Her eyes met his again, but only for a brief moment before she looked away.
Accepting the shirt, Stein took off his own coat, and put it back on, noticing the slight scent of Medusa that had stuck to it. As he was putting his coat back on, he watched as Medusa had started to walk past him and towards the door.
"Where are you off to in such a hurry?" he spun on his heel, eyeing the snake-witch.
"It's been a long day. I'm ready to close up before anyone else decides they want to show up." She put her hand on her door knob, opening the door and Stein shut it with one hand, standing behind her. A shiver ran up and down her spine as she glanced back at him before turning around and looking up at him with a small glare.
"Stein, seriously. I want to go home, take a nice hot shower, eat dinner, read a book, and go to bed. I don't have time for your little mind games."
"You were so sweet on me earlier, Medusa…" he practically purred her name, "Why the sudden change of heart?" he leaned in closer to her, as if demanding an answer.
"I told you I'm ti—"Stein cut her off with a deep kiss, smirking the entire time into it, and then looked down at the Witch with a grin.
"You're what now?"
"I'm ti—"and he cut her of again, but this time she shoved him away, "WILL YOU STOP THAT!" and huffed with a rather large blush. Before she had a chance to yell at him again he cupped her chin and smiled at her.
"Join me for dinner and a movie. At my place."
"You… cook?" Medusa arched a brow at him, hardly believing him for a second.
Stein chuckled, running his hand along her jawbone and down her neck, before placing his hand on her shoulder, "You think I order out every night or something?" he smiled, leaning forward to whisper in his ear, "I can dissect almost anything, my dear."
"Almost anything? I expected better of you, dear Doctor."
This threw Stein into a laughing frenzy as he opened the door and lead Medusa out. His laughter was contagious and Medusa found herself laughing as well as she locked the clinic door and they entered the halls of Shibusen, their laughter echoing down every corridor.
Walking along, Medusa started to ramble about an article she had read online during her spare time at the clinic. Something about the human body and genetics with some other complicated information that cannot be comprehended by most people. Stein was quiet, but not because he was listening to her. He in fact had closed his eyes briefly to register what souls were still left in the building. Practically none at all. There were a few, but nowhere near their vicinity. Thankfully he knew the school well and could navigate with his eyes closed without error. A devilish grin crossed his lips and he opened up his eyes, glancing over at Medusa.
"So if scientists were to change just that one part of the human gen—"
"Medusa..." Stein cut her off.
"What?" she glanced up at him with a glare, "You really seem to have a bad habit of interrupting peo—"Stein grabbed Medusa by her wrist, spinning her and slamming her into a nearby set of lockers. She gasped in shock, her breath escaping her, more by the pain of her body indenting the lockers, rather than what he had done. He pressed her up against the lockers using his entire body, before grabbing her right leg and lifting it up to wrap around his waist. This pulled her up off the ground, the tips of her toes barely brushing against the floor, since he was so tall compared to her. He chuckled into her ear, pressing himself against her with a small grind, his rather obvious erection pressing up against her.
Medusa was still for a moment before she, herself, grinned reaching her arms up and wrapping them around his neck, digging her nails into the back of his neck playfully, "As arousing as this is, we're in the school hallway. We're going to get caught." She pulled some of his hair teasingly.
The hair-pulling caused Stein to growl, and press his forehead against hers, their noses brushing against each other, "I've already taken the liberty of making sure that there was no one in the vicinity." He nipped at her bottom lip with a louder growl, grinding against her once more, "Besides, you seem to like the idea of getting caught. It's so very warm…" once again he grinned, but this time moved his left hand, his dominant hand, and lifted up her dress, pressing his fingers against her clit, and sliding downward, feeling her wetness, "And oh.. so.. very… wet." He pronounced each word with emphasis and increased diction.
"You b-bastard…" Medusa's face flushed a deep red. She had completely forgotten that he had confiscated her underwear earlier that morning. His fingers were dancing around her exposed womanhood before she felt two of them slide their way in. A moan quickly escaped her lips as she countered with her nails to his neck again.
He chuckled at her reaction, kissing her neck gently, then passionately, then almost with an animalistic nature. Stein wanted to take her right there in the hall way. Each moan that escaped her soft lips turned him on even more than he was already. He glanced at her flushed, sultry face. Medusa's face was tinted crimson and when she opened up her eyes to meet Stein's green ones, he locked her into a passionate kiss. He growled into the kiss, and her moans met his growls as his hand started moving a bit faster.
Her eyes rolled into the back of her head, her body in absolute bliss as he moved his hand faster, his thumb was pressed perfectly on her clit, stimulating her as he moved his fingers within her. It wasn't going to last long. As Medusa was starting to near an orgasm, she felt a set of eyes watching them. She opened her eyes to see the one 'person' she didn't want to see. Stein was really into what he was doing, almost too much to notice the fact that Lord Death was now standing behind them, "Oh-ho… Well, this is an interesting show. One not rated for students to see."
"Shit…" Stein thought to himself, "The one soul I can't sense…" glancing over his shoulder, he looked at Lord Death, "My apologies…" he went to remove his fingers from Medusa, but not before pressing up against her g-spot playfully. She blushed hard with a squeak, restraining the fact that he had just caused her to orgasm right in front of Lord Death. She glared at Stein as he swiftly removed his hands from her and from holding her leg and placing them in his pockets nonchalantly. Medusa pulled down her dress quickly, after she found her proper footing.
"That's definitely something I never anticipated I'd catch you doing, Stein." Lord Death scolded him as if he were his own son, "And you as well Medusa. Both of you should be ashamed of yourselves. What if a student had come by?"
"I had already taken the precaution and made sure there were no students in the vicinity. I would never be so careless." Stein pressed his glasses upward, taking a quick sniff of Medusa's scent when he did. It was strangely intoxicating to him, like everything about her, and he found himself unable to get enough of it.
"Hmph…" Lord Death set his sights on Medusa now, "What do you have to say for yourself, Medusa?"
Her face flushed red. She felt like she was going to get in trouble if she said anything and that she'd have to endure a dreaded 'Reaper Chop'. "I apologize as well. The situation was completely inappropriate."
"I did surprise her with the situation, Lord Death." Stein admitted.
"I see, I see…" Lord Death nodded, "I have no problem with this sort of thing in the school, as long as you're discreet and definitely not in the hallways. Do I make myself clear?"
"Yes, Lord Death…" Medusa nodded.
"Crystal clear." Stein replied.
"Very good, very good! I hate meddling in romantic affairs. Now, be off you two! Shoo! Shoo!" he waved them off with his gigantic hands, "It's late. You two should head home. Bye bye now~!"
The trip down the steps of Shibusen was quiet. They were like two students who just got expelled from school and were told not to speak a word to each other 'til they got home. It was quiet up until Stein started chuckling.
"Why the hell are you laughing?"
"We got caught…" he started to laugh harder, "Do you not find the irony in that?"
"No, not really." she looked at him angrily.
Stein burst out into a full on laughing frenzy, "I'm a teacher, and you're a nurse. We just got scolded like the students we scold every day."
"It's still not funny at all, Stein."
"No… it's hilarious."
Medusa flipped him off, walking further ahead of him in a storm of rage, "He's so childish! What was I ever thinking...?"
Stein caught up to her wrapping her arms around her from behind, sliding his hands downward to her stomach, "All you have to do is say when and where, my dear Witch."
Shocked, she jumped and spun around, "Stein!" she spoke through her teeth in a hushing tone, "Don't. Call. Me. That." she looked down at him, since he was leaning downward and his face was practically right in her bust.
"I told you I knew who you were..." he grinned and then leaned down more, his hands on her rear and her bust in his face now, "You can't deny it, nor can you deny me...", he spoke sharply, and almost threateningly. Before she had any chance of a thought process to retort, he lifted her up over her shoulder in one swoop.
"PUT ME DOWN THIS INSTANT!" she kicked her legs and thumped her fists on his back in protest.
"Nope." he began to carry her off, in the direction of his home like a well earned battle trophy.
"At least pull down my dress then before I kill you!"
Stein glanced over and noticed that her dress had hiked up to reveal some of her bare bottom, "Ah... That's right. I still have my prize from this morning..." he chuckled and did her the favor, pulling the dress down, "Though... I was enjoying the view."
"You pervert." she huffed, "I swear I'll kill you."
"I'm hoping you don't mean right now, out in the open, with the chance of revealing yourself as a Witch..." he chuckled proudly.
"...damn." Medusa huffed in defeat. Her old self would've never let a man toy with her as much as Stein was doing so. "My old self…" she took a moment to realize exactly what she had said to herself. Indeed, she had changed, but was it for the better? With her being a Witch, she knew that no one could ever find out about this self change that was occurring, "Where are we headed anyways? Surely you're not carrying me to my place? Unless you have this strange knowing of a round about way of getting there, and knowing how to get there without ever having gone there." She spoke just a tad bit quickly.
Stein laughed, "Your run-on speedy sentences are adorable you know." He spoke as he put her down gently. Turning, she saw that she was facing Stein's place and instantly took in all the sights. The building structure, the trees… everything that her eyes could set upon, she mentally dissected. Then, she laughed.
"Stein, what is with the vector trees?" she smiled, adjusting her dress, "Were you expecting me? Or is this your way of 'wooing' me?"
"I just happen to think the trees look nice. A mere coincidence is all." He pushed open the door to his home and ushered her in, "Have a seat. I'll get started with dinner."
And that's the end of that one. There's some more lemony goodness in the next chapter, unfortunately. I'm trying to cut back on it but Stein and Medusa are pretty much testing each other to see how far the other one will go. Good 'ol experimentation. Unless you guys want me to put lemony goodness in each chapter, that is, but I'm trying not to dish out all my good stuff in the beginning.
Hope you enjoyed it! Review it, please! I love hearing from you guys and could use some suggestions/feedback. What characters would you guys like to see other than Stein and Medusa? I know I had some Black Star in there, and there's going to be some Death the Kid soon.
Thanks so SO much to Apoc326 again for being such a huge inspiration in my writing and for beta-ing for me. I really don't think I could've continued, had he and I not been talking. I can't wait to get a collaboration story going!
Off to work on Chapter 4!
