ALRIGHT! This is where (hopefully) the chapters will take a dramatic change. Thanks guys for being so awesome!

"Gosh! I so like him!" I sighed as I took a shower. When I finished I climbed into bed.

"Too bad he'll never like me." I whispered to myself as I closed my eyes and fell asleep.


I woke up to the sound of my phone ringing.

"Moshi Moshi?"

"Ah! Hinamori Amu-san! We need you to come into the studio today for some last minute shots!" I groaned.

"I have school today!"

"Yes we know but these shots need to be taken before 1 o'clock today!"

"Ugh fine. I'll be there by…10? Is that all right?"

"Yes that's perfect!"

"Oh yeah one question!"

"Shoot away."

"…Which company is this?" I asked with a chuckle.

"Abercrombie…Aw you're so forgetful!"

"Yeah yeah." I said as I hung up.

I got ready in a matter of minutes. Then I hopped in my car to pick Rima up. I still didn't want her to walk by herself.

Sigh. I'm such a good friend.

I honked the horn twice and she soon appeared and within seconds, she was in the passenger seat. I started driving.

"Why aren't you wearing your uniform?" She asked.

"Oh! I have a quick photo shoot. It should be done by 12 though so I'll see if I could make it."

"But it's a school day." she pointed out

"I know. But I have to go…"

"Whatever, so anything happen with Ikuto yesterday?" I immediately blushed.

So I told her everything from him being a model to the almost kiss.


"HEY WATCH YOUR LANGUAGE!" I yelled back. Then I saw her do her innocent smile and I knew some serious shit was about to go down. She then rolled her window down.

"Hey Tsukiyomi! Car ride! GET IN." She screamed. I sweat dropped.

"At least try to be nice…" I said.

I popped the trunk so Ikuto and Nagi could put their boards in. A few seconds later they were in the backseats.

"So is this an everyday thing or…?" I asked.

"Why? You don't like me Amu~?" I blushed.

"I do like you! Just not like that! Wait! I mea-"

"Amu. Drive." Rima said.

"Oh crap."

After two minutes of awkward silence Ikuto spoke.

"So why'd you turn down Tadase? Isn't he on the football team or something?"

"Yeah he is. But to me there's more to life than dating the guy on the football team."

"Wow. That was so inspiring." He said as he slowly clapped.

"Haha shut up!" I said between giggles.

"Besides! I happen to suffer from girlnextdooritis" I said. This cause both Nagi and Ikuto to raise their eyebrows. I sighed.

"It's when a guy is friends with you and that's it." I explained.

"That's hardly the case, Amu." said Rima.

"Yeah it may seem like it but once they actually become my friend, all hope goes down the drain." I sighed. "I should know. I'm experiencing it right now. BECAUSE OF YOU!" I screamed at Rima.



"ACTUALLY IT IS WORKING OR YE-" I quickly covered her mouth. Ikuto was in the backseat and he was the only guy that I was with yesterday.

"Whatever. I'll just drop you off." I said.

"You're not coming?" Ikuto asked.

"No I have to do a photo shoot…" I trailed off. I then looked in the mirror and saw Ikuto…blushing? Why was he blushing? Oh. He was probably thinking about yesterday. Ugh. I can't believe Nikaido made me do those poses.

"I can't believe Nikaido made us do those poses." He said like he was reading my mind.

"I know! But if you hadn't been there I would've had to do it with another girl again!"

"Yeah good thing I was there to save you." He said. I chuckled.

"Yeah…" I said.

A few minutes later we arrived at school. Ikuto and Nagi got their boards and Rima was about to get out.

"Wait Rima!" She looked at me.

"I need you to do something." She nodded and sat back down. Just then Ikuto appeared at my window and told me to roll my window down. I did.

"Bye Amu" he said. Then he leaned in and kissed my forehead. As he walked away I waved back faintly.

"…What the heck was that?" Rima said.

"No idea… Oh! Anyways! I need you to do something."


"I need you to pick me up some lunch." She raised and eyebrow.

"I mean, I am going to be at a photoshoot, and I always pick you up~."

"Fine. Asshole. Who blackmails your best friend?" She replied.

"Shush up and do it, loser." I teased..

"Yeaaah. Maybe." She replied.

"Pleaseeeeee?" I pouted.

"Fine." She huffed. "Now I need to get to class so…bye!" I nodded. After a few minutes I started to drive away.

Ikuto POV

"Hey. Lover boy" I looked up and saw Rima. Well more like I looked down but details, details.


"You're getting her lunch." She said as she walked past me.

"I don't even know what she likes!" I yelled after her.

"Something with strawberries." She shouted back.

"What the hell am I going to get her with strawberries?"

"You know what? I just helped you. You could've at least said thanks or something without the fucking sarcasm." She retorted as she whirled around to face me.

"Whoa. Watch that vulgar mouth of yours." I joked. Obviously she didn't get it.

"I'm not vulgar. I just happen to have a very colorful vocabulary. Fuck you very much." She said and then stomped away. I could really care less because at the moment I had to find Amu her lunch. A lunch with strawberries. Oh joy.

I started walking to class, trying to figure out what she could eat.

By the end of first period I decided to make her some chocolate covered strawberries.

"Is this even what you do for girls you like?" I wondered as I went to the home ec. Room.

TIME SKIPPY!~ [Ikuto is looking for Amu now. It's 4th period now]

So it was 4th period which was everyone's lunch/free period. I walked around the school looking for Amu. After about 20 minutes I gave up and started walking to the

cherry blossom trees off school grounds.

I was walking with my head down when I bumped into someone.

"Hey watch where you're go-" I looked up and saw that it was Amu. I sat up and poked her again.

"I got your lunch." I said as I gave it to her.

"I thought I asked Rima?" She said as she took the box from me.

"Yeah, well that little demon said I had to do it." I replied.

"o-oh. Well sorry to burden you. You could've just called and I would've gotten a sandwich or something!" She said as she struggled with the lid. I grabbed the box from her and snapped it open.

"It's no burden at all. I wanted to do it. But you do owe me…" I trailed off.

"Well then what should I give you?" She asked oh-so-innocently. Hah. Wait till she gets a load of this.

"A kiss." I smirked. A hint of red flashed across her cheeks and slowly disappeared.

"Alright!" She giggled as she kissed me right above my lips. The cupids arrow to be exact.

I pouted. "What was that?" I whined.

"A kiss dummy!" She said as she smacked my head lightly.

"I didn't feel anything on my lips." I countered, covering my head for protection.

"I definitely felt some lips going on there." She said as she poked where she kissed me.

"I want it on the whole part of my lips though." I said calmly.

"Uhhh… you wish?" She got up. "Well lunch was awesome, but I really gotta go right now. Class starts in 5 minutes. Maybe I'll give you your kiss later!" she giggled as she walked to her next class.

I grumbled as I watched her go. We didn't have any classes together until the end of the day, so what was the point.

"I wanted that kiss…" I grumbled, looking at the ground.

"What the hell?" I heard two people say behind me. I turned around and saw it was Rima and Nagi.

"Tell anyone, especially Amu, about this and both of you will be dead." I said as I pointed a finger at both of them. Rima reached over, grabbed my finger and twisted it.

Rima's POV

"Now listen here, lover boy." I said as I kept twisting his finger.

"Ow! Ow! Ow! Ow! Ow! Ow! Ow!" He yelled in pain. Ignoring his screams like the good person I am, I spoke again.

"I will tell you one thing and it might be true, it might not be. If you think it's true, which it probably is, then you have to do something about it." I looked at him. "You got it?" He nodded.

"Alright. Amu likes you. Now before you get all overjoyed and start wondering why the hell she likes you-don't waste your time. I kept wondering for months and months and never found out the reason. I want you to go out there and get her, because she likes you a lot." I let go of his finger and saw it was turning purple from bruises. "I want you to get Amu to fix that. Now good day." I said as I walked away.

"Wait, Rima!" He shouted at me.

"I SAID GOOD DAY, AND WHEN I SAY GOOD DAY THEN THAT MEANS GOOD DAY, DAMMIT." I shouted at his face. When he didn't say anything else for a few minutes I started walking back to class, no doubt late by now.

'Amu better thank me for this.' I thought as I slid in my seat next to Amu, ignoring the teacher's glare.

Amu POV Last Period! (Study hall / free time)

I walked in to take my regular seat next to Rima, only to see Ikuto was there at our usual table.

"Ikuto…what are you doing here?" I asked him. "Isn't your table over there?" I pointed

towards the general direction of his table.

With a smirk he replied, "How do you even know where I sit?"

"Because you're the only bastard in here with blue hair." I muttered as I snagged a seat next to Rima.

Now don't get me wrong and think that I'm not head over heels in love with the guy anymore. I am, I just really don't want to show it. Typical, huh? The girl falls in love with the boy, the boy might like her back, she has a pretty good chance -almost definite chance of being liked back, yet she doesn't voice her opinions.

Why though? I feel like a girl should be able to pursue the guy she likes without any interference from society. Huh. I should take my own advice sometimes…

My epiphany was soon enough broken my a certain male by having him lick my cheek.

"What the fuck? That's disgusting!" I shouted as I pushed him to the ground. As soon as his bum hit the ground, a grin appeared on his face.

"You know you liked it." He replied with a wink. I pursed my lips and walked out of the room with a huge blush on my face and all eyes on me.

""I'm in deep shit…" I mumbled as I flung into the girls bathroom, sliding down against the door.

And that's a rap! Hahaha. I feel as if this was rather crappy. The next chapter will definitely be better!

For those of you who have been reading all along, FORGET THE PLOT FROM BEFORE! It will NOT follow the same one. That old one was rather off course.

So review what you think about this guys! J
