LET'S ALL MEET UP IN THE YEAR 2000

One-shot side-story to my other EOTE fic "The Abandon, The Reunion, The Family", Osugi's is in the Hospital as Saki is giving birth to Akira's child, painfully reminding him of his unrequited love for her…

If you haven't read Abandon, Reunion, Family yet, read that one first

Song fic set to "Disco 2000" by Pulp


Oh we were born within an hour of each other

Our mothers said we could be sister and brother

I remember when we first met

It seemed like so long ago

Well…it was…anyway

Our Parents were friends…that's how we met…at one of your parent's last dinner parties before their untimely deaths

Your name is Deborah, Deborah

It never suited ya

And they said that when we grew up

We'd get married and never split up

When I heard your name for the first time, I immediately thought of that drink my dad would guzzle down after he got back from a long day of work

When our parents saw us playing together, they commented how cute it was, and they practically squealed as you kissed my cheek as payment for showing how to make a sand castle

And I heard them say "Those two are gonna get married someday".

And that's when I decided I wanted to date you...

Oh we never did it

Although I often thought of it

But I was oblivious…all through our school years

I came to your small house/bakery a few times, not as your boyfriend, just as a friend

And when I called you, It never escalated past "Friend Talk"

Looking back…I was a fool…

Oh Deborah do you recall?

Your house was very small

With wood chip on the wall

When I came around to call

You didn't notice me at all

I just wanted to grow up

All I wanted to do was grow up so we could date and escalate our relationship to the next level

And I said

let's all meet up in the year 2000

Won't it be strange when we're all fully grown?

Be there at 2 o'clock by the fountain down the road

But unbeknownst to me

You were waiting for your prince

Something I would find out when you met a certain man in front of the white house

I never knew that you'd get married

And I would be living down here on my own

On that damp and lonely Thursday years ago

Oh, but I wasn't the only one you ignored because you were waiting for your prince

All though College, you got asked out constantly

They'd talk about you in the locker rooms, how curvy your were

I just wanted to punch them and say "She's my girl!"

You were the first girl at school to get breasts

And Martyn said that you were the best

All the boys all loved you but I was a mess

I had to watch 'em try and get you undressed

Except…you weren't, were you?

I tried to best them by walking you home every day…but you brushed it off as another act of friendship

We were friends, that was as far as it went

I used to walk you home sometimes but it meant...

Oh it meant nothing to you

'cos you were so popular

Deborah do you recall?

Your house was very small

With woodchip on the wall

When I came around to call

You didn't notice me at all

And College finished and we grew up

And you were still single, not so much as a kiss on the lips were shared between you or anyone

We were 21 and then came my chance

And we went to New York with the rest of Eden…

And then you left to go to DC…

And you met Akira Takizawa

And I said

let's all meet up in the year 2000

Won't it be strange when we're all fully grown?

Be there at 2 o'clock by the fountain down the road

About week after you returned from DC, I finally got it

A date with you…

We were on the train, heading for our respective job interviews

And I asked, "Hey, after this is done, you wanna get some dinner? Seeing as we're already dressed up and all."

You thought about it and then you nodded

It took look of my willpower to not start dancing

I never knew that you'd get married

I would be living down here on my own

On that damp and lonely Thursday years ago

I finished my interview…I ran, I ran so far just to get to you

Just to see you ride off with him

Do it

I came to a conclusion

A conclusion that completely crushed my heart

I had booked a reservation in a expensive restaurant and everything and you just rode off with some guy I'd never seen before

They were non-refundable too so I ended taking Kasuga of all people.

Where I ended up getting Piss drunk and vomiting up a 80,000 yen meal

Oh yeah

We all know what happened next, the conspiracies, the missiles, finding Takizawa or Iinuma or whatever he was called at this point

You travelled half the world just to find the guy…but you never said you loved him aloud.

It was still obvious though…So why did I think I still had a chance?

Oh yeah

Well…after I saw you two kiss before he took off with Mr. Outside

I knew my dream was dead

Deborah do you recall?

Oh your house was very small

Oh with wood chip on the wall

And when I came around to call

You didn't notice me at all

Nothing but heartache…for you that is

He left…but I didn't dare try anything, Sis and Micchon would have my head if I did

But deep down, I still wanted you…just like I'd wanted you for all these years

Just one date, that's all…but that never happened

And I said

Let's all meet up in the year 2000

Won't it be strange when we're all fully grown?

Be there at 2 o'clock by the fountain down the road

One night he came back, out of the blue

Before I knew it

You two were married

Oh god it hurt so much when you told me…

Only one thought lingered after you announced it

"My heart hurts"

I never knew that you'd get married

I would be living down here on my own

On that damp and lonely Thursday years ago

One year on and here I am

Sitting in a hospital, alongside our friends and family

Waiting for you to give birth to his baby

It's only now I realise…

I lost

Oh what are you doing Sunday baby?

Would you like to come and meet me maybe?

You can even bring your baby

You had a girl…named Meihime

Destiny Girl…suppose that's a fitting name

Suppose Destiny is what brought you two together.

What are you doing Sunday baby?

My dad comforted me, saying that plenty of people have "the one that got away"

No…she was never mine to lose

Would you like to come and meet me maybe?

My mom said that their was "more fish in the sea"

Suppose that's my only option now

I'm just your friend

That's all I'll ever be to you

But if that's all I am...

Then that's enough

You can even bring your baby


Yeah, If it seems a bit crap, that's cause I wrote it at 5 in the frickin' morning to counteract my boredom.

The one downside of sleeping in 'till 6pm is that you won't get some sleep until the next frickin' day

I considered swapping out the lyric "Deborah" with "Saki" but decided to leave it untouched.

Anyway, incase you didn't read the opening disclaimed, the song is Disco 2000 by Pulp, It's a song about a real-life unrequited childhood love that the lead singer (Jarvis Cocker) went through. I figured it fit, I really love this song along with their other song "Common People". so I may do a song fic with that one too.

I decided to name it "Let's all meet up in year 2000" as apposed to "Disco 2000" due to the song having nothing to do with disco, aside from the music video which takes place in, yup you guessed it, a disco hall

So will I continue expanding upon my Eden of the East fic?

Perhaps

Perhaps not

Who knows?

Me…I Know

And the answer is

Maybe

:D
