Chapter 1

Disclaimer- I own nothing!
A/N- This is what happens to Tamaki in the 10 years he leaves home. The first few pages will sound familiar to those that read 10 years, sorry. I don't know why I started this I just felt like it I guess. Please enjoy.

"Do you love me?" Tamaki laid staring up at the sky in his back yard. The moon was full and the stars were shinning down on him and on the man he loved.
"Of course I love you. I wish you would believe me when I say it."
"I do, I just like to hear you tell me that you do."
"Typical." Kyouya laughed as he pulled Tamaki on top of him. He was glad he snuck out to come here tonight. Every moment was worth it, though he felt that every moment spent with Tamaki was worth it. Soon they would come out and tell their father's that they were in love. Both had money saved up and put away in case they were thrown out of their houses. If they didn't get thrown out then the money would continue to be saved so they could buy a place of their own when they were ready. They didn't plan on moving out so soon unless they had to.
"I love you. I'm glad you are here. I just hope you don't get caught going home. I don't want you to get in trouble."
"I'll be fine. Besides who said I was going home tonight?"
"Wha…?" Tamaki was cut off as he felt lips tickle his neck.
"Kyouya…someone could see us." He had trouble getting his words out as he felt his lovers lips move down his body, his shirt was slowly being removed.
"We've done it in riskier places before."
Tamaki knew he was right. "Sssh less talking."

*The second time they hung out together as more than simple high school friends, Tamaki went over Kyouya's house. That in itself was rare but they walked into his father's office.
"Hey Tamaki come here."
"Are you sure we can be in here? Isn't your father going to be home soon?"
"He still has another few hours of work since he has a meeting today."
Kyouya kissed the nervous lips of the man he loved until they stopped quivering. He sat on top of his father's desk and pulled Tamaki closer, it seemed Tamaki wasn't going to object anymore. Soon Tamaki lay under him on the desk; his father's papers were sticking to their sweating bodies if they hadn't fallen to the floor from their movements. Both loved the feel of their naked flesh on each other. Neither could have imagined sex having this much enjoyment if they hadn't experienced it for themselves. Being lost in each other they lost track of time, having their senses snap back as they heard Kyouya's father down the hall heading into the kitchen. They had just gotten dressed and snuck out of the room before he walked out and into his office. The room was still a mess but the window was open, they could only hope he believed it was the wind.*

"Now that's what I'm talking about." Tamaki slurred his partners' words as he bit down on the others lips. Neither were worried about someone finding them, they were hidden by the flowers and bushes in the garden. They didn't care who found them, if anyone, they loved each other. They couldn't be torn apart by anything. No matter what came up they would handle it together.

Tamaki couldn't control the moans that escaped him as he felt Kyouya over him. This felt so right, so perfect, just as every time before this did. "…Kyouya!"
"Master Tamaki is that you? Are you out here?"
Both stopped, frozen as they were. Hopefully whoever it was wouldn't find them. As much as they didn't care, it was a little too bright from the moon to be comfortable with the idea that someone other than each other would see them naked.
"Someone is coming. Kyouya get off me, it sounded like Shima's voice."
"Oh shit!" Shima wasn't too strict but it would definitely not be good to get caught by her out of all the people on staff here. Kyouya got off of Tamaki without standing so he wouldn't be seen over the bushes.
"Here are your clothes."
"Tamaki these are yours."
"Oh sorry…here." Both tried to keep their voices as low as possible as they handed the articles of clothing to the right person. Kyouya just slid his boxers on and moved between the bushes as he heard someone getting closer. It did sound like Shima.
"Master Tamaki, you should come in. It's nearly eleven and you have school tomorrow don't forget." Kyouya practically held his breathe as she walked past him. Luckily Tamaki had just finished getting dressed and was looking at the sky as she walked over.
"Oh Shima, hello, I'll head in soon it's just too nice of a night to not enjoy it."
"Don't stay out too much longer. And should I have preparations made to have Mr. Ootori stay the night as well?"
Tamaki sat up and glanced at the bushes where Kyouya was for a second before looking at Shima. Kyouya slapped his forehead; of course she knew he was here. Tamaki couldn't be subtle about anything.
"No, Kyouya isn't here. I haven't seen him all night."
"If you say so Master Tamaki. Please don't forget to come in soon."
"I will, thank you Shima."
Once he was certain she was gone and back in the house Tamaki collapsed exhaling. That was close; he barely got his shirt on the correct way before she arrived. Next time he was sticking to simple things when he knew he was going to be with Kyouya. Kyouya came out of the bushes shaking off the leaves that had fallen on him.
"That was a close call, huh Kyouya? I wonder how she found out that you were here?"
"Well it couldn't be the fact that she heard you scream my name before. Somehow I am not at all surprised by the fact that you are one of those people that scream a name during sex."
"Hey, at least it was your name."
"Hey, I wasn't the one worried about someone finding us." He couldn't stop the smirk from forming; Tamaki set himself up for that.
Tamaki just pouted at him as if he was an injured puppy, he hated when Kyouya was right.
"Well since you aren't dressed yet and the night is still young care to pick up where we left off?" He moved closer to Kyouya to straddle him.
"I thought you would never ask."

Tamaki got dressed yet again to go inside for the night. Kyouya was right beside him to re-button his own shirt.
"Are you staying the night?"
"Do you want me to?"
Tamaki just folded his arms to stare at him. What kind of question was that?
"Alright I'm staying. Just don't leave me outside your window for twenty minutes like last time."
"I said I was sorry."
"Roses hurt and that lattice isn't the easiest thing to climb and hold onto to, plus you know how I feel about heights."
"Alright I get it. I'll open the window as soon as I get in the room. I won't change first."
"Good, see you in a few." He kissed Tamaki before he headed to the house away from the back door and closer to Tamaki's bedroom window. Tamaki walked into the house making sure he looked the same as always. Kyouya waited until he saw Tamaki's light go on before he climbed the lattice. This time he knew where to place his hands and feet as he climbed making it easier though the rose thorns still managed to prick him.
"I swear Tamaki that bush is there to keep people out." Kyouya swung his legs into the room, Tamaki grabbed him to make sure he didn't fall.
"Probably, since it is only outside of my window. Kyouya you're bleeding, come here." He grabbed Kyouya's hand to see that blood was coming out of the side of it. The thorns got him good it looked like.
"I'll be fine, don't worry about it."
"Stop being stubborn and let me clean it for you." Knowing fighting him was pointless he let Tamaki take him to the bathroom. He seemed upset; this wasn't that big of a deal. Take Tamaki to get upset over a little scratch. Once that was taken care of Tamaki led them to his bed. They didn't do anything but sit together; Kyouya could tell he had something on his mind. Something he was thinking heavily on.
"I'm tired of sneaking around Kyouya. I want us to be able to go out together and not worry about holding hands or flirting with each other. I want to go somewhere nice with you, go out on an actual date. I mean sneaking out has been…fun and thrilling I'm just getting tired of it."
"I understand Tamaki and we talked about it. That's why we are keeping money aside so we can be ready and prepared for when we stop hiding just in case things don't work out."
"I know but I wish we could just not worry about it. I like taking care of you. I want to take care of you forever. I want to heal your wounds that aren't from sneaking into my room."
"Tamaki one day we will be able to. I think we should wait until we graduate. I know it's still a year away but waiting feels right. I want to spend the rest of my life with you and we both know that our lives don't truly start until after high school."
"Your right I know. I can wait until then. We still have each other so I can handle sneaking around until the time is right. And actually I think we should wait until you take over for your father. I don't want him to do something to you while he can. Once you're in charge he won't be able to stop us."
"What about you? You have just as much at stake."
"Not really. My grandmother hasn't accepted me yet so I am still not her heir. I think she is trying to find my father another wife so they can have a legitimate child, a true successor."
"Tamaki don't say that. I know she will accept you soon I can feel it."
"Well whatever I'm just saying. You have much more to lose. I don't mind waiting if it means you're safe from your father. I want us to live our lives without worrying about our families doing something to break us apart."
"You're too much you know that right?"
"It's my duty to take care of you."
"Your duty? Says who?"
"Says the unwritten rule that the father is to take care of his family."
"Is that so?" Kyouya moved to force Tamaki to lay on the bed so he could stare into his eyes. He loved Tamaki and the unwritten rules he followed. He laughed every time he heard them. That night Tamaki made room for him in the bed. His hands pulled Kyouya closer as they laid under the covers. Tamaki may have been the father in his made up family but Kyouya knew that Tamaki loved to be held and taken care of.

"Kyouya get up your going to be late." Tamaki was trying his best to wake Kyouya for school.
"Tamaki what time is it?" He noticed the man he spent the night with was already dressed and his lavender eyes were staring at him with annoyance for sleeping in so late.
"About ten minutes before we have to leave or we are going to be late. Your driver is already here and waiting outside of the gates so Shima doesn't know you spent another night here." As Kyouya sat up Tamaki handed him his glasses. He forgot that he had a driver come here to pick him up whenever he spent the night to erase any chance of rumors if they arrived in the same car.
"Do you still have the uniform I left here?"
"I have it hanging in the bathroom for you already."
Well he didn't have time for a shower but knowing Tamaki he had something to get the smell of grass out of his hair. He should have done what Tamaki did and showered last night.
"Am I coming over again tonight?"
"Well I thought you invited me over for a 'my dad is leaving on a business trip so we have the house to ourselves' party."
"Your right I did say that. Okay then my house it is. He leaves while we are in class so whenever you want to come over you can."

The day was the same as always, school then host club. No one in the club knew that they were together and both were okay with that. Surprisingly both liked the idea that their relationship was private and wasn't made a big deal. He believed all relationships should be like that though he had to keep tabs on people for the club. Tamaki dropped his things for the night in Kyouya's room before getting another tour of the house.
"Hey Tamaki ever dream of doing it on a pool table?"
"Is is a red top?"
"But of course."
"Then by all means lead the way."

Winter break started tomorrow, Tamaki was excited knowing that there was snow on the ground already. He was hoping for a white Christmas in the worst way. Both had seen each other as much as they always did. Kyouya sat in their classroom waiting for Tamaki to walk in. Tamaki came in and just rested his head on his desk, that wasn't good. Even if he had a rough morning he at least said good morning to him.
"Are you alright Tamaki?"
"I think I caught a cold from the weather. I was up all night with a fever."
"Then why did you come to class? You should be home resting."
"We have that big test today remember. I'll be okay. After the test I'll leave if I don't feel better."
"Well okay then."
All during homeroom Kyouya kept an eye on him, he seemed to be getting worse.
"Tamaki, go see the nurse." Kyouya whispered before their first class started. Tamaki didn't say anything back to move hastily to the garbage can in the front of the classroom. He was grateful he didn't have a big breakfast as it all came up.
"Tamaki!" Kyouya was on his feet before anyone else even completely realized what happened. The teacher walked over to Tamaki to make sure he was okay. "Kyouya help Tamaki to the nurses' office please."
He nodded and walked over to him, placing his hand on Tamaki's back he let him know he was here. Straightening his posture to walk slowly he made sure he wasn't going to get sick again before he took a step.
"I feel like crap."
"Don't take this the wrong way but you look it. Come on."
Tamaki was able to make it to the nurses and get examined without getting sick again though he felt about ready to. He heard the nurse tell Kyouya he had the flu and to go back to class since he was going home. So much for taking the test, if he had known this he would have just stayed home. He didn't have time to think about it though as he got up to run into the bathroom.

Under the covers in his bedroom Tamaki tried to hold onto his sanity. He was shaking and needed covers on him though he was running a fever and sweating like he just ran a marathon. All he wanted was to see Kyouya but he wasn't allowed to until his fever broke.
"Stupid flu, make it stop." Going into another coughing fit he moved the covers up higher. He rarely got sick and it turned out that when he did he really got sick. He woke up again hours late to see his father in the room to check on him. Thanks to the fever they didn't talk long before he fell back asleep.

Days passed quickly for him since all he did was sleep. He barely left his bed and didn't have to leave his room at all since the maids brought him food. All he wanted was to be better so he could see Kyouya again. It was nice to see his father every night once he got out of work but he wasn't Kyouya.
"Master Tamaki you have a visitor." Sitting up in bed he saw Shima at his door with Kyouya behind her.
"Are you up for visitor's sir?"
"Yes, it's fine." He still felt shitty but this was Kyouya, he could last to see him. Shima stepped aside to let Kyouya enter and left the two alone. Kyouya moved to the bed to wrap his arms around Tamaki.
"Shima says your fever finally broke."
Ummmhmmm." He snuggled closer into the others arms, he wanted to enjoy this as best he could since he waited so long for this day.
"I miss you Tamaki. One day we'll be able to stay together when the other is sick."
"It feels as though that day will never come."
Tamaki's voice wasn't back yet, he moved Kyouya closer so he could hear him and he didn't have to talk so loud.
"It will come faster than you think. When you're feeling better we should talk about where we want to live."
"I thought I told you I wanted to wait until you took over first." Tamaki's voice broke up as he pushed it to push his statement. He wasn't letting Kyouya give up on his dream of succeeding for his sake.
"Tamaki that may never happen, who knows what my father will do. I don't want to wait on a maybe to start our life together. I love you and want to be with you as soon as we can. I'm not going to fight you on this. We'll talk when you're feeling better."He kissed Tamaki's forehead knowing that was as close to his face as he was going to get.
"I love you Kyouya Ootori."
"I love you too Tamaki Suoh."

That night Yuzuru walked into his son's room to see him wrapped in Kyouya's arms. Not wanting to wake them he turned and left the room. He wasn't surprised to see them together since he heard Tamaki mumble the other's name when he had the fever a few nights back. He was surprised by the fact that Tamaki had yet to say anything about it to him. If they wanted to be together then who was he to say no, he would be more than happy to protect them from Tamaki's grandmother and Kyouya's father.
Tamaki woke up two days after Kyouya's visit, the Tuesday before Christmas which was that Thursday, feeling loads better. He actually had the energy and desire to move off the bed and leave the room. It was about time that he really started to feel better. He could tell he wasn't a hundred percent yet but he was definitely getting there.
"Wait until I tell Kyouya, he is going to be happy for me as well." Getting dressed for the first time since he became sick he went downstairs for breakfast. As he sat down at the table he started to wonder how much better he was actually feeling. The queasy feeling he woke up with wasn't going away and seemed to be getting worse. As breakfast was being taken out of the kitchen for him he felt like he was going to be sick. Pushing out of his chair he ran out of the room and down the hall to the half bath where he just made it before spilling his outs out.
*What's wrong with me? Don't tell me I'm getting sick again.*
It took him a good five minutes before he could even begin to think about leaving the bathroom. When he did he wasn't all that surprised to see Shima and a couple of maids standing outside of the door.
"Are you alright Master Tamaki?"
"I think I'm going to my room to lie down for a little bit."

Going back to his room he laid down only to shoot back up to run back to the bathroom. This was nuts, he wasn't this bad when he had the flu. After two more trips he had had enough. He couldn't remember the number to the family's personal doctor so he called his father to see if he could contact him.
"You're sick again? Sure I'll call for you. Do you think it's the flu again?"
"No, it may just be a virus but I've been sick long enough."
"I'll call him for you and I'll stop by later so you can tell me what he finds."
"Okay. Thanks father."
With that he closed his phone and fell asleep. He didn't wake up until he heard Shima. Opening his eyes he saw the doctor with her, giving him a reason to actually get up.
"So what's wrong Tamaki?" The doctor started to check his vitals.
"I don't know I woke up feeling okay, just queasy but then I got sick and was sick all morning. I'm tired of feeling crappy."
"Well let's see if I can't help you." The doctor went over everything for symptoms or signs to only come up short.
"The only thing I can do is take a blood sample and see if that doesn't show something for you since everything else shows your fine."
"Let's do that then because I really don't want to be stuck in bed for Christmas."
"Okay then, give me your arm."
Tamaki gave his arm and looked away. He wasn't really scared of needled he just didn't like to watch.
"I want you to run all the tests you can on this sample. Even the ones that wouldn't make sense. I want to know what the hell is wrong with me."
The doctor got where he was coming from and finished up.

Being alone he debated calling Kyouya to tell him not to come over since he wasn't feeling well again and he didn't want to get him sick by not knowing what he had. He changed his mind remembering that Kyouya couldn't come anyway from the approaching holiday. With nothing else to do he went back to sleep. He seemed so tired; maybe he was getting the flu again.
"That would suck." He mumbled as he closed his eyes. He was up for a little bit before his father came into his room to see how he was feeling though he didn't see that becoming a long term thing.
"What did the doctor say?"
"He is running tests for me. I should know sometime tomorrow."
"Well that's good. If it's just a stomach virus you should be better by Christmas."
"That's what I'm hoping."
"Have you eaten yet?"
"I've been a little scared too."
"Well come on let's get you something at least, eating nothing won't help."
He got off the bed to follow Yuzuru.

The next morning Tamaki was just as sick as the day before. He couldn't wait for his cell to go off. Laying in bed he watched TV until he felt his phone start to vibrate in his hands. It was before noon, not bad. Scrambling to sit up he was sorry he moved so fast. Fighting the nauseous feeling he stood up to get water the maids left for him in a pitcher on his small table in his room.
"Hello, this is Tamaki."
"Hello Tamaki, I have your lab results from the blood sample I took."
"Did you find something?" Chugging a glass of water did seem to help his stomach.
"Yes I did. According to what came up you have high levels of hCG. Tamaki according to this your pregnant, does that sound possible to you?"
The glass he was holding slipped through his fingers, shattering against the table. He stumbled backwards to sit on the bed. So much ran through his mind he couldn't think or barely breathe.
"Please don't say a word to my father about this. I'm ordering you not to tell anyone."
"As you wish Tamaki. Do you wish you make an appointment to come in and see me?"
"I…I'll have to call you back on that."
"Of course."
Tamaki closed his phone to burst out into tears seconds later. The thought of getting pregnant never crossed his mind before now but it made sense that it could happen. He was always at it with Kyouya and they weren't always using their heads. Kyouya, how was he going to tell him, how was he going to tell their father's?
"What have I done?"
Crying all day he managed to stop when he heard his father outside his bedroom door. As he saw him enter the room he debated telling him. No he wanted to talk to Kyouya first.
"So did you hear back from the doctor?"
"Ummhmm and he said all the tests came back negative. It's just a stomach virus."
"Well at least it's nothing serious. I know it sucks Tamaki but you look miserable. Is something else going on?"
He tried not to jump at that so his father wouldn't suspect anything.
"No everything is fine. Guess I'm just upset that it happened now."
"Why don't you get out of the room for a little bit? It is Christmas Eve after all, and if you haven't noticed it's snowing out."
"Is it? I guess I'm going to get my white Christmas after all." He stood up to go look out his window. It was coming down pretty fast; everything was covered meaning it had been going on for a while now. Trying his best not to slip up he went downstairs with his father to spend the night.

He didn't sleep much; he couldn't not when he had so much to figure out. A baby, this changed everything. He figured Kyouya wouldn't abandon him but he knew then his future would be lost. If he told his grandmother she would probably throw him out, disown him, or force him to get an abortion. He couldn't harm the baby, Kyouya's child. No he would have the baby no matter what. Still even with that decided he still had much to figure out.
"What am I going to do Antoinette?"
She laid on the bed beside him watching him toss and turn. He talked to her for awhile until he started to cry again and fell asleep.

When he woke up to the sun light entering his room he was hit with a wave of nausea that sent him running to the bathroom. At this rate his dad would learn the truth before he actually told him. As he sat back against the wall knowing he wouldn't be able to leave the room right away he saw Antoinette walk in, pull a hand towel off the rack and give it to him.
"Thanks girl, its nice knowing you won't judge me and you have my back." He noticed she stayed by his side as he spilled his guts out multiple times, he couldn't help but smile at that.
"You're the best Antoinette, you know that. Come on let's go meet my father downstairs before he comes up."

"Morning father." He walked into the living room to see Yuzuru watching the fire while he drank his morning coffee. He was grateful the aroma wasn't too strong.
"Morning Tamaki, Merry Christmas. Glad to you see you out of bed, are you feeling better?"
"More or less I guess." Joining his father on the seat next to him, Yuzuru watched as Antoinette sat in front of Tamaki's feet.
"She never leaves your side, does she?"
"Not usually. She loves to stay close to me."
"That's good; she is such a loyal pet to stay with you. I bet she is taking good care of you since you've been sick."
Tamaki thought back to just before and smiled.
"Yes, she has taken great care of me."
Spending the first half of the morning together Tamaki went back to his room for a few minutes. As he sat on his bed he let his mind fully take over what had been on it since he woke up.
"The only way for everything to work out, the only way to protect Kyouya is to leave home and leave him in the dark." The thought alone made him want to cry but he had no other choice. If he stayed then he would have to tell Kyouya who would lose everything once Yoshio found out. He couldn't do that to him, they both shouldn't ruin their futures. Besides he was perfectly capable of raising the child on his own, if others could do it then so could he. Where would he go though? If he stayed in Japan Kyouya could find him with his family's police force. That left him no choice but to leave the country, the only place he could go to was France since he spoke the language. Paris would give him the best chance to find a place to live and places to work. The public school system wasn't too bad either if he remembered correctly from what he had been told when he lived there. So he would do that then, he would move to Paris and raise the baby there. With that figured out he went back downstairs, he wouldn't be able to leave until tomorrow or Saturday since the bank was closed for the holiday. That worked, it gave him a chance to really plot things out. He hated thinking that he would be considered a runaway, he didn't usually run away from his problems.
"I'm not running away, I'm doing what's best, yea, what's best." Still even so going downstairs and seeing his father became extremely difficult. Being a host helped somewhat, it gave him the experience needed to show that nothing was wrong.

The day was longer since his decision and became hard to handle knowing this was probably one of his last days living at home. The longer he stayed here the more he feared changing his mind. Knowing this was to protect Kyouya he wouldn't back down. Kyouya deserved his life. He loved him more than anything else so he would let him go. That was something you did for those you loved right? Laying in bed once his father turned in for the night he plotted every detail. He would need money for the flight, getting to the airport, public transportation possibly once in France, apartment down payment, monthly rent, furniture, doctor appointments. On a side sheet of paper he wrote down things he would need for the baby but didn't have to get right now.
"Antoinette how am I going to do this? I need to take out so much money but if I take it from my personal account my father may realize and be able to track me down. If I don't take enough then I'm going to be in trouble financially once I'm in France. I know I can't use my credit cards because those will be traced but I need something." Going through the lists again he tried to figure it all out.
"I got it, my joint account with Kyouya. We have our names on it but we never check to see how much is in it. Plus, I can hide any withdrawals I make from him. Still I'll need a lot out of it." Trying not to cry again he moved to the head of the bed to step away from what he was working on and rested his head on his pillow. A hand rested where the baby was. The thought was unbelievable, he was going to have a baby, a baby whose father was the man he loved.
"This is my only option. I'll make it all work out, I have to."

The following morning, after he spent quality time in his bathroom losing his insides and remaining sanity he hung out with his father. This was their last day together; he wanted it to be a good one. He wasn't planning on ever coming back here. He couldn't come back here. He would miss his father; he would miss talking to him, getting advice from him. That was it, he had to stop dwelling on it, the longer this continued the harder it would be tonight. After they had dinner Tamaki took Antoinette to his room to have her help him.
"Okay girl, I need you to act an injury for me. I'm going to act like a kidnapping happened here and you can help."
Getting on the floor with her he taught her what to do and the command to do it on. She was smart and would do what he asked no problem.
"I'm going to miss you girl I hope you know that."

At ten o'clock he made sure his father was asleep before going through his closet. The plan was to only bring a duffel bag, a suit case would be to obvious.
"Okay girl make a mess." As he grabbed clothes to last a week or so she pulled off his bed comforter and took clothes out of the drawers he opened once he got what he wanted from them. Going into his bathroom he pulled his travel bag out for a toothbrush and took out the extra bottles of shampoo and conditioner he kept there. The less he had to buy in France the better. He had enough under there so no one would realize anything was missing. Shoving it in his bag he went back into his room. Antoinette did a wonderful job of tearing his room apart. Doing a quick sweep he saw a picture of him and Kyouya on his dresser. It was taken at school after they became a couple. Throwing it in his bag he made sure it could close. Checking his list to make sure he had everything he needed he took one last look at his room. This was it, this was really happening. He looked down as Antoinette nudged the back of his knee with his nose.
"What is it girl…oh hey thanks." Looking over he saw her holding the bear his parents gave him when he was little. Taking it from her mouth he wrapped his arms around her neck hugging her close to him. Tears came to his eyes and he let them fall on her.
"I'm going to miss you so much Antoinette. You're the best friend I or anyone could ever have, don't forget that." She licked his face as he pulled away making him smile and laugh. Putting the bear in his bag he stood and put the shoulder strap around him as he went to the window. Opening it looked down at the rose bush he had to climb down.
"If Kyouya can do it…"
Swinging his legs out the window and onto the lattice he fixed his bag on his back better and took one last look at his room. Antoinette jumped at the window whining at him. Hearing her cry at him broke his heart.
"Hey don't cry you'll be okay. Take good care of my father for me and remember the plan." Rubbing her head he smiled seeing her tail wag.
"Love you Antoinette. Take care." Before he thought about staying he climbed down to the ground. Staying close to the house and trees he made it to the front yard fence. He couldn't go out the front gate or the guard would catch him and everything would be ruined. The only choice was to climb the fence since there wasn't a tree close enough. This would be a lot harder to climb then the lattice outside his window but it didn't seem impossible. Making sure the coast was clear he started to climb up. He was right about it being a lot harder, not feeling a hundred percent didn't help any and caused him to take a breather at the top. Finally over the fence and outside of this yard he took one last look at his house. He couldn't turn back now he had to move forward.
