"Speaking"

'Thinking'

'Man why do I always freeze up whenever I am around Emi?' Koichi thought to himself as he stood up and declared: "I am going to go and tell Emi how I feel about her right now," he stated as he marched out of his room and headed towards Emi's room.

Meanwhile in another room in the Juda dorms said teenage girl is also thinking hard to herself.

'Why don't I just come out and tell him how I feel? How hard can it be to say, "Koichi, I love you," Emi thought to herself when she heard a knock on her door, "Come in."

"Emi it is Koichi can I talk to you for a minute or longer?" He cautiously asked as he slowly entered with his head down.

"Sure what is on your mind Koichi," Emi asked as he entered the room.

"Well I just wanted to say something that has been on my mind and something that I should have told you a long time ago and now that Kato has been destroyed I have the chance to tell you," Koichi said.

"What is it Koichi please tell me," Emi said with a curious look on her face.

Koichi took a deep breath and slowly exhaled as he began to confess his feelings, 'Man this is even harder than trying to save the entire world from an invasion from the other side,' Koichi thought to himself, 'Well here goes nothing.'

'I wonder what he could be so nervous about, unless he is going to confess his feelings for me,' Emi thought to herself before she realized that she was staring at him and his face was red as he stared right back.

'Well I can tell that she wants to tell me the same thing so I will just get it over with,' Koichi thought as he finally concluded.

"Well I know that I should have told you this a long time ago but I just couldn't get myself to say it because I didn't think that you feel the same but I am going to say it anyway so here goes nothing, Emi I just wanted to say that I love you," Koichi stated with a serious look on his face.

'Well he does feel the same way that I do well I shouldn't keep him waiting I should tell him how I fell,' Emi thought to herself as she started to move to Koichi and put her arms around his neck and pulled his lips down to hers as she placed her lips on his and said against his lips, "I love you too Koichi."

'Well that went better than I thought that it would and she actually kissed me and this time I was ready for it unlike the other 2 times with Risako and Miu when they just surprised me with the kisses they threw on me," Koichi thought as they continued to kiss.

"Hey Emi I was wondering if you could help me with some new formations for our fleet if you have some- "Ms. Ogawa started as she walked in the door and stopped as she seen Emi and Koichi kissing and she slowly backed away as she noticed that they had not stopped kissing, 'They deserve this.'

And Ms. Ogawa being Ms. Ogawa went to every room except for Miu's room and told everyone about exactly what she had just seen.

"No way are you serious it is about time that they finally come to their senses and tell each other how they feel about each other," both Shizuna and Izuna stated at the same time.

"I know and we should all be happy for them and not try anything to hurt their new found relationship, is that understood?" Ms. Ogawa stated with no room for argument.

"Yes understood," everyone else stated at one time.

"We should throw them a party to celebrate and show them how happy we are for them and everything," Izuna stated happily.

"That is a great idea Izuna," Ms. Ogawa stated.

A/N: Sorry to leave you on a cliffhanger but I need to leave something for the next few chapter. Speaking of Chapter 2 it is called: Party and late night fun. Please read and review.
