(Chapter Nine – Love Has Spoken)

Narrator: Rock walked far away, and he was very close to leaving from the city.

Rock: Well, this is it… Good-bye, Snow Village.

Sayuri: Howard?

Narrator: Soon as he heard that voice, he turned around. There she was, the girl he hasn't seen in two years. He didn't know what to say her. She then started to walk closer over to him.

Sayuri: Were you just going to leave without seeing me?

Rock: Hahahaha! Howdy there, Sayuri! How long has it been? I was looking for you, but I just couldn't find you. I gotta go away from this city, or else I'll get killed.

Sayuri: I'm coming with you.

Rock: (?) Ha-ha! No you're not! I'm going alone! You have parents and a life to live! I'm just a bum!

Sayuri: I want to be by your side forever, Howard. Can't you see that?

Narrator: Something in Rock's brain made him snap after he heard that.

Rock: ENOUGH OF THIS, SAYURI! DON'T COME ANY CLOSER TO ME! I'M A BUM, YA HEAR! A GOOD FOR NOTHING BUM! WHY DO YOU WANT TO COME WITH ME! I KNOW WE'RE FRIENDS, BUT PLEASE! WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME! WHAT THE HECK'S WRONG WITH YOU!

Narrator: No matter how much or how loud he yelled at her, she kept on walking over to him.

Sayuri: I love you, Rock Howard.

Rock: (?) WHAT? WHAT WAS THAT! I COULDN'T QUITE HEAR YOU!

Narrator: She stood in front of him and gave him a hug, afterwards closing her eyes.

Sayuri: I said, I love you, Rock Howard.

Narrator: He couldn't believe this. He was always in love with her, but he never once thought that she loved him in a romantic way.

Rock: Ha-ha! No you don't! You couldn't possibly love an idiot like me!

Sayuri: I love you.

Rock: Hahahaha!

Sayuri: I want to be with you.

Rock: C'mon!

Sayuri: I want to be your wife.

Rock: S-Sayuri? Are you-?

Sayuri: Yes… I love you with all of my heart *Smiles*.

Rock: … Ha-ha.

Narrator: Rock started to laugh, but his laughter quickly turned into crying.

Rock: I love you, too, Sayuri, but why do you love me? Look at me! How on earth is that even possible? What do I got that no other guy doesn't got?

Sayuri: They're not you, Howard. You're you, and that's why I love you.

Narrator: He then hugged her.

Rock: Sayuri?

Sayuri: Hmm?

Rock: I will never stop loving you. I loved you since the day we met. You make me feel like a better person. Heck, you made me a better person!

Sayuri: *Smiles* Thank you, Howard. I'll never stop loving you, either.

Rock: I am the world's most lucky man! I'd die for you, Sayuri! I'd just fall down and die!

Narrator: Rock said happily while looking her straight in the eyes.

Sayuri: Likewise.

Rock: ….

Sayuri: ….

Rock: Uh, can I kiss ya now?

Sayuri: Ahaha~ Not until we're married, Howard *Smiles*.

Rock: *Sigh* I knew you were gonna say that. Aw well, it's worth the wait!

Sayuri: *Giggles & Smiles*.

Narrator: They finally told each other their feelings. Sayuri went home and told her Mom and Dad. They were really happy for her, and they liked Rock very much. They knew that they could trust him with their daughter. She was actually able to leave with Rock, and off they went. During the weeks of traveling they spent together, they found a church and got married there. She was now Sayuri Howard. Rock was as happy as can be! So was Sayuri. During one of their trips, they struck oil. Sayuri was already rich, but now they were super rich! They used their money for good, though. They gave to the poor and helped lots of people out. During all of this, Rock started to become who he truly was. He shaved and he was now less rugged. He put on his fancy, cool cloths, fixed up his hair, and his voice sounded less "hick" sounding. Sayuri always loved him, but now it seemed like she fell deeper in love with him; likewise for him to her, of course. Rock was also a much nicer person, and he forgave Terry, and other people, that he hated in the past. They now had their own house, barn, and farm. Life was just perfect for them. Rock and Sayuri will forever love each other, and now I must say good-bye. Thank you for reading this! You rock out loud!

The End!

Iori: Well, that was nice… I guess.

Kyo: *Tears* so beautiful *Sniffle*.

Iori: Hey, are you crying!

Kyo: Shut up, man! I'm not crying…

Iori: *Shakes head* Yeah, whatever… Hey, you know what's PATHETIC?

Kyo: *Wipes eyes* W-What?

Iori: This story is the ONLY thing that does not make Sayuri gay… I mean, all the rest is yuri this, yuri that, Sayuri x Mai, and balls… Nuts.

Kyo: You know what, I think you're right! That's… sad.

Iori: Yeah. Well, I'll see you later, Kyo *Walks away*.

Kyo: *Sniffle and wipes eyes* See ya, man *Walks away*.
