"And now, here we are for the all time famous, international band…." He paused as the audience went silent in anticipation.

"SOUL ROCK!" he finally shouted out their name and the crowd screamed and shouted as the curtains opened. It has already been a year since they're showdown with Blue Tears and that made them known throughout the whole world. There they were in their concert. Their band was already famous through the whole world with them giving their own renditions of the songs, though they did have original songs to perform also. Kid and Soul smiled at each other as they looked at Patty. Patty giggled and raised her drumsticks.

"One, Two! One, Two, Three! Rock!" Patty slammed her sticks to the drums. (Bold-Kid, Italics-Soul, Underline-Maka, Black Star, Liz, Tsubaki, Patty)

I'm gonna make it bend and break
(It sent you to me without wings)
Say a prayer, but let the good times roll
In case God doesn't show
(Let the good times roll, let the good times roll)

Soul stomped his feet and stepped forward. Kid stepped backward.

And I want these words to make things right
But it's the wrongs that make the words come to life

Kid stepped forward in line with Soul quickly.

"Who does he think he is?"
If that's the worst you've got better put your fingers back to the keys

Soul and Kid jumped once and pointed to the audience. Liz and Tsubaki raised their hands and hit their fingers to the last note.

One night and one more time
Thanks for the memories
Even though they weren't so great
She tastes like you only sweeter

Kid tapped his feet as he shook his head.

One night yeah, and one more time
Thanks for the memories
Thanks for the memories
See she tastes like you only sweeter

Soul stepped backward to be in line with Maka. They both looked at each other as they both sang. The audience screamed when Soul did this. Soul smiled and went back to his original position with Kid.

I'm looking forward to the future
But my eyesight is going bad
And this crystal ball

It's always cloudy except for, except for
When you look into the past, look into the past
One night stand
One night stand

One night and one more time
Thanks for the memories
Even though they weren't so great
She tastes like you only sweeterOne night yeah, and one more time
Thanks for the memories
Thanks for the memories
See he tastes like you only sweeter

They say I only think in the form of
Crunching numbers in hotel rooms
Collecting page six lovers
Get me out of my mind
Gets you out of those clothes
I'm a liner away from
Getting you into the mood

Kid and Soul looked at each other and raised their shoulders. All of the instrument players stopped playing except for Patty and of course the vocalists were still singing, for the chorus.

One night and one more time
Thanks for the memories
Even though they weren't so great
She tastes like you only sweeterOne night yeah, and one more time
Thanks for the memories
Thanks for the memories
See he tastes like you only sweeter

Black Star and Maka looked at each other and grinned. They both struck their guitar at the same time as they went to the last chorus. Liz and Tsubaki started playing also.

One night and one more time
(One more night, one more time)
Thanks for the memories
Even though they weren't so great
She tastes like you only sweeter

One night yeah, and one more time
(One more night, one more time)
Thanks for the memories
Thanks for the memories
See she tastes like you only sweeter

"Whooooooo! SOUL ROCK! SOUL ROCK! SOUL ROCK!" everybody in the venue jumped and shouted their name out loud.

"Thank you!" they all bowed as the curtains closed. When the curtains closed they grinned at each other and hugged each other.

"Great performance, everybody!" Kid said.

"Yeah!" Patty giggled. Maka looked at Soul as he approached her. Soul placed an arm around her shoulders.

"Nice playing" he said with his 'cool' deep voice. "Well, nice voice you got there" Maka smirked. Liz rolled her eyes as the two shared compliments. Tsubaki and Black Star have also been going out for a while. Liz looked at the two pairs as they talked to each other.

"Sis is jealous! Sis is jealous! Haahaha!" Patty pointed to her big sister. Liz glared at her.

"Well, no use in hanging out here on stage. Let's go back home, the car is waiting for us outside!" Kid smiled at them as they nodded. They went to the hallway were the paparazzi were waiting for them. They hardly saw the floor they were walking on because of cameras flashing everywhere. Fortunately, there were barricades on the sides of the hallway for them to not come close to the famous band. They were the hot topic for the past year. First, because they won in the showdown with Blue Tears. And second, because of the two couples in the band. They went in the black car but before they went in they waved to their fans. They went in the car.

"Whoa! That was absolutely fun!" Black Star stretched his hands and feet. He rested his legs on the back of the front passenger seat.

"Hey! Feet off!" a woman with short raven hair and eyeglasses looked at him from the front passenger seat. Black Star sweated and shivered as he put his feet down. Yumi Azusa. Their strict professor of DWMA, has been chosen by Kid to be their Manager. Of course, Azusa didn't want to miss the opportunity.

"So how was your concert?" Azusa adjusted her eyeglasses as the driver opened the engine of the car.

"Good, professor!" Kid said. "Hmmm… I see…" she replied. All of them looked at each other.

"'I see' is the only thing you can say?" they whispered.

"Perfect" she added with a smile. They took back what they said and smiled. Maka felt her cellphone vibrate in her pocket. She reached for it and looked at it. It was Charlotte saying congratulations to the successful concert earlier. She smiled. Charlotte has been friends with them ever since. Blue Tears continued to play but they didn't bother Soul Rock anymore.

"Oh, before I forget… Your mother, Kami, sent you a message" Azusa said. Maka's eyes lit.

"What did she say?" Maka asked.

"She said she's so proud of you and she wished she could visit you again…" Azusa replied. Kami just visited them last month but she had to leave because she had a job in another country.

"And your father called too…" Azusa added. Maka's eyes turned dark. Soul chuckled.

"oh… What did he say?" Maka asked.

"He left a voice message for you…" Azusa lifted up her blue cellphone.

"Oh, no… Not a voice message from that guy…" Black Star shook his head. All of them except for Maka and Soul covered their ears. Azusa pushed one button and the car was filled with an annoying voice.


"Urgh…" Maka massaged her forehead. "You're father is annoying" Soul smirked as he looked outside the tinted window. Maka pouted.


"Ok! Way too annoying!" Soul looked at the cellphone meanly.

"BYE MAKA! REMEMBER, MAKA! Daddy loves you *beep*" Azusa threw her cellphone in her bag.

"I'm so sorry you have to hear all that…" Maka sighed. Soul smiled and wrapped his arm around her.

"Don't worry. I can put up with your father's voice as long as you're here by my side" he said. Maka smiled at him and leaned on his chest.

"Is it done yet?" Liz asked as she opened one eye. They removed their hands from their ears and took a deep breath in relief. They looked at Soul and Maka and smiled. Soon, they arrived to their house. The hopped off the car and Azusa opened the window shield.

"Sleep early and be sure to be in school before 7" Azusa said.

"Yes! Professor!" they said in unison. The window shield closed again but as it closed mid-way, it opened again.

"Oh! And be sure to do your homeworks and pass the project on my subject due tomorrow, ok?" she added.

"OH MY GOSH!" Black Star slapped his cheeks and ran inside the house.

"Black Star, wait!" Tsubaki tried to stop him. Tsubaki turned to Azusa and bowed.

"Excuse me!" Tsubaki laughed nervously and went to Black Star. Azusa rolled her eyes.

"Kids nowadays…" she mumbled.

"Bye…" she said as the window closed. The car went on its way to the academy. They sighed in relief.

"What a strict teacher she is…" Liz shook her head. "Kid, why did you pick her as our Manager?" she asked.

"Because she is a very well-organized lady and I wouldn't miss the chance of offering her this job" Kid smiled.

"Oh, I see now…" Liz looked at him unenthusiastically. Patty giggled.

"C'mon, let's go inside" Soul said to his fellow band mates. They went to the door and Kid brought out the keys. He stopped.

"Wait… How did Black Star and Tsubaki enter?" Kid faced the four with a confused face. They all looked each other. Kid hurriedly opened the door. Once they entered the house and opened the lights they saw Black Star running back and forth with Tsubaki on his tail trying to calm him down.


"Wait, Black Star, calm down!" Tsubaki followed him around trying to catch his back.

"Tsubaki, how did Black Star get in?" Liz asked. Kid saw that Black Star was thrashing the rooms and his jaw dropped. Patty laughed as he pointed to Black Star.

"The ladder… Hehe…" Tsubaki stopped following Black Star. "And you?"

"I followed him" Tsubaki smiled nervously. "Urgh… the things you do for love…" Liz said as she began to charge at Black Star. Kid did the same. Patty continued to laugh. Maka chuckled.

"Hey, aren't you glad that I entered your dressing room on the day I met you guys personally?" Maka asked Soul. Soul smiled.

"Well, I'm glad my plan backfired to me when I was planning to kick you out of the band…" Soul remembered that time when he wanted Maka out.

"I was a fool back then… But now, I'm really enjoying the consequences on letting you stay here in the band…" Soul looked at her.

"Music brought us all together, huh?" Maka held his hand and blushed. "Yeah"

"CHARGE!" Patty ran to them and started to follow Black Star too.

"Should we join them?" Soul asked Maka.

"I think we should!" Maka smiled as they both ran to them.

Soul Rock had been strong together for years even after graduation. Though they had to separate for reasons, they still remained friends.

A few years later when they were all in their 20's. Liz had opened an international store for clothes and Patty supported her the whole way. Kid had took his father's position in school and sometimes visits Liz's store to arrange it in a symmetrical place. They also started dating a little bit though sometimes Kid makes Liz crazy with his symmetry fits.

Tsubaki had started a flower business. She really did like flowers ever since. And as usual Kid visits and makes it symmetrical but Black Star changes the arrangements when he leaves. Tsubaki had a hard time replacing some of the broken pots because of Black Star pouncing around the shop. But one time, Tsubaki was surprised when she saw a ring inside the broken pot that Black Star purposely broke. Tsubaki looked up at him and Black Star said 'I thought you were going to miss out that one' and took the ring as he knelt in front of her.

Things had changed. A lot. But some things will never change. Our friendship, trust and love for one another. Especially for the red-eyed guy grinning, showing off his sharp teeth in front of you saying 'I do'. And for the guy who said 'YAHOO' every time the priest pauses.
