Hi! This is my first fanfic ever, so I really hope you like it. ^ ^

"What?" I turned my gaze away from the book that had held most of my focus. Looking up, I saw Soul's crimson eyes staring down at me. I felt butterflies in my stomach. Butterflies? What was wrong with me? It was just Soul.
"I said I liked you. It's uncool to make me say it twice," I started laughing at first, thinking it was a joke. But looking at Soul again, my laughter stopped completely. He was serious.
"I-I like you too, Soul," Heat rushed up to my cheeks. Soul growled.
"No, I like like you! God, Maka…" He trailed off rubbing his hand over his mouth. I noticed that he was blushing just as much as me. That reassured me a little. Just a little.
"Why are you telling me this now?" I regretted the rude words as soon as they were out, but Soul didn't seem to mind. He sighed.
"Because," his tone serious, "With the Demon God gone and everything, I thought…Hell, I don't know what I thought Maka. I just want…" Souls trailed off again. "This is so uncool," He murmured.
We sat for a while in an awkward silence trying not to look at each other. Why was I acting like this? I know that I liked Soul, that I like like him, so how come I was acting like a total idiot? The answer was too clear; my parents.
My mama had been a meister and papa had been her weapon. They ended up together and look where they were at now; mama MIA in some foreign land only sending a few postcards and papa acting like a complete metal person. And oh ya, they were divorced.
I didn't want that with Soul. Not if it's going to completely ruin our friendship. And there was still that. That one thing that had happened when I had been fighting the Demon God and everyone else had been unconscious. I still hadn't come to terms with that.
I shook my head to clear my thoughts. Soul was still there in front of me in our little apartment staring at me with his deep, red eyes. Trying to tame the blush creeping to my cheeks, I took a deep breath.
"Soul," My voice cracked. I cleared my throat and tried again. "Soul, I…I do like you, but,"
"But?" Soul prompted.
"But I don't want us to end up like mama and papa. I-I need time to think about this," I looked up and nearly jumped out of my skin in fright.
Soul was staring at me with barely contained murder in his eyes. His mouth was set in a harsh scowl and his hands were shoved deep in his pockets. He was really pissed off.
"Sure. Fine. Whatever." And then he left. He didn't slam the door on his way out, just closed it softly. I don't know if it was that or the fact that I had practically rejected the one guy I liked that caused the tears to flow from my eyes.
I really don't know how long I sat there crying. All I could think about was the day I fought the Demon God and what had happened. I leaped out of my skin when my cell rang.
"Hello?" I sniffed a little to clear my voice.
"Maka? It's Tsubaki. Are you ok?" I shook my head 'no' before I remembered she couldn't see me.
"No," I gave another sniff. Why was everything so messed up now? I knew I wasn't acting like myself, but I couldn't help it. It was times like these I wished my mama was here.
"Oh, what happened? Is it bad? You want to talk about it over the phone? No, I guess you wouldn't. How about you meet me down at Deathbucks, ok? See you soon!" The line went dead.
I hung up and went through the motions of getting ready to meet Tsubaki. On my way out, I thought to myself, 'Should I tell Tsubaki everything?'
I left the apartment and tried to leave the memory of Soul's expression behind as well.
'Let me think about it' she said. 'Doesn't want to end up like her parents' she said. 'Soul, I-I do like you, but…'
Those words rang in my ears. How could she? How could she say something like that? Time I could give her but...Man, this was so uncool. I could feel the heat rising to my face.
I was so caught up in my own thoughts, I didn't see Kid and Black Star coming around the corner of the street. The only warning I got was a punch in the stomach by Black Star. Like I didn't feel like throwing up already. Uncool.
"SOUL! YOU LEY YOUR GUARD DOWN! BUT THAT'S UNDERSTANDABLE SINCE AN AMAZING GOD LIKE ME, BLACK STAR, CAME AT YOU! AHAHAHAHAH!" I tried to ignore him and the pain in my stomach as my thoughts returned to the present.
"Kid, Black Star. What's up?"
"Nothing," sighed Kid. "We were going to play basketball with Liz and Patty, but Liz claimed something had come up and couldn't make it. Then Patty found her way to a 'Built-A-Giraffe' and we haven't seen her since."
"Uh-huh. So what made you decide to not play one-on-one?"
"You think I would play one-on-one with that crazy freak?" We both looked over to where Black Star was standing on a bench proclaiming his 'Godliness'. He jumped to another bench only to have one of the boards snap under his feet and send him crashing down.
"Haha, guess you're right," Me and kid laughed a little until it felt forced. Clearing my throat, I started to walk away.
"Later," I called over my shoulder with a half wave.
"Wait, Soul. Is everything alright? You seem…off." Kid walked up behind and put a hand on my shoulder. I tried shaking it off, but he wouldn't let go. I sighed.
"Nothing. Just a small Maka-problem,"
"Oh, did she Maka-Chop you again?" Kid asked with a half-smile.
"No," I reflected with some surprise. "She didn't." A gleam came to Kid's eyes as he looked Soul over.
"Ah, I see. One of those problems. How about we go to my place and discuss this 'small Maka-problem'." He started pushing me in the direction of his house.
"Uh, no thanks." The last thing I wanted to do was talk about Maka at the moment. My thoughts were already full of her. How green her eyes were. How cute she looked reading one of her books. How she made my heart pound…So uncool.
"What's happening?" Black Star jogged over to where we were standing. Kid turned to him.
"Soul's having a 'Maka-problem'. Help me get him to my house." Black Star laughed.
"Hell ya! This is gonna be fun!"
The next thing I knew, I was slung over Black Star's shoulder being towed off to Kid's mansion. I thought to myself. 'Since this is gonna happen anyway, should I tell them everything?'
Really hoped you enjoyed it! Sorry if the characters didn't really act like themselves. Please comment and give any advice if you have it. It would really help. Plus I dont know if Im going to continue this...
