Here it is. The last chapter. Don't yell at me for what happens at the end. I have to give my friend credit for it because she helped write Chapter Seven. Thanks, TT!

1 Red-Eyed Angel

1.1 Chapter Seven: Secrets Revealed

When Kurapika got back to his room, Leorio was already in bed, watching TV. Kurapika went to the walk-in closet and changed into his pajamas. It was time. He came out and saw Leorio with his eyes closed, TV remote in hand. "Leorio?" Whispered Kurapika.

Leorio didn't move. "There's something I have to tell you."

Leorio opened his eyes, and his mouth formed a large O in shock. "What? Kurapika…" He stared at Kurapika's chest, "You're a girl?"

Her eyes filling with tears, Kurapika nodded. "Leorio… I'm sorry… I had to keep it a secret."

"How did you disguise yourself?" Leorio suddenly felt strange. "And why?"

"Had to bind them…"

"Just like Alanna*!"

"Who's Alanna?" Kurapika asked, "Is she your girlfriend?"


"Oh… I see…" Kurapika smiled mischievously, "You're a two-timer, eh?"


"You claim she's your girlfriend… and you've been sleeping with me…" There was a twinkle in her eye.

"I… yeah, right! Kurapika, you know better!!!" cried Leorio.

Kurapika laughed and moved closer to him.

"Why did you hide it from me?" Leorio asked.

"I wanted to be sure you liked me." Kurapika said innocently.

"Then now you're sure?"

"Of course!"

"All right then." Leorio smiled goofily, "Good night."

Kurapika waited until she thought Leorio was asleep. Then she snuggled into his arms. "I love you." She whispered, "Even the blood of war cannot block the spirit of life and love."

Leorio wrapped his arms around Kurapika and asked, "Did you say something?"

"Oh, nothing." Kurapika smiled in the dark.

Breathing in the bubble bath scent (Spring Roses), Leorio grinned. Yes, he thought, I finally got her!

They lay there, locked in each other's arms. Just as he drifted off to sleep, Leorio said, "Hey, you still awake?"


"Oh the, nevermind. Good night, Angel."

"Ahem, I think you mean Red-Eyed Angel."
