Anj: Hey Ikuto!

Ikuto: *ignore*

Amu: Ikuto, why are you ignoring Anj?

Ikuto: She still hasn't put any dirty things into the story yet.

Anj: Ikuto, just wait a little while. It'll happen soon enough.

Ikuto: YES! Amu totally wants me.

Amu: *chokes on spit* Ikuto, you are completely delusional if you think I want you or any part of you near me, thank god Anj doesn't own us. I will never have sex with you Ikuto.

Anj: Anyways…I'm a bit sad I only have two reviews so please read this chapter and review!

Ikuto: Anj, the reason you have no reviews is because this story doesn't have sex in it! *walks towards Amu*

Amu: Ikuto, stay away from me.

Ikuto: *pounces on Amu*

Anj: Ikuto! DON'T RAPE HER! Anyways…enjoy! *saves Amu*

When I woke up Ikuto still had his arms wrapped around me and I distinctly remembered something about manly oranges…I successfully got out of bed and went to the bathroom. When I went back to the bedroom I had a frown on my face. My unwanted monthly visitor was back.

Ikuto was still snuggling into a pillow and I giggled and shook him awake. He pulled me back into his arms and kissed my neck. I giggled and pushed him away before getting up again and going to the kitchen. I made some pancakes for breakfast and put out some strawberries and chocolate sauce. Ikuto walked into the kitchen and wrapped his arms around my waist.

"Good morning," I giggled when he tried to kiss me and pushed him away and told him to eat breakfast first. He pouted at me and I rolled my eyes, even as a twenty year old Ikuto is immature.

"Just sit down and eat." I said when he tried to kiss me again. He made a face but sat down and ate with me. I put my plate in the sink and went back upstairs to take a shower. I was about to get out and realized I forgot a towel…

I hope Ikuto isn't in the bedroom again…I'm sure he would love it if I walked into the room in nothing but a towel. I slightly opened the door and made sure Ikuto wasn't in the room before I ran to the closet and grabbed a towel and wrapped it around myself.

It was only then that I realized Ikuto was standing at the door and just staring at me. I blushed and tightened the towel around my body. Ikuto just kept staring at me.

"Exactly how much did you just see?" I asked slowly before sitting down on the bed.

"Everything," Ikuto walked over to me and kissed me and pushed me back onto the bed. I moaned slightly and pushed him away from me.

"Ikuto, stay away from me until I put my clothes on!" I shoved him out of the room before closing the door and locking it. I shoved on a bra and panties before putting on shorts and a tank top and opened the door. Ikuto walked back in and just looked at me…I blushed and he smirked.

"I'm sorry if I made you uncomfortable when I kissed you. Seeing my girlfriend naked does things to me." I blushed some more and Ikuto laughed.

Ran, Miki, Su, Dia, and Yoru were all floating near the door with a look of disbelief on their little faces. I giggled and Ikuto turned and looked at them before chuckling.

I was surprised that Yoru was still with Ikuto. When I had spent time with Ikuto in the past while Yoru signified how Ikuto wanted to be free, and if he was still here it meant that something was still tying him down and preventing him from being free. I couldn't help but think that maybe it was me that was holding him back.

"I should remember to lock the bedroom door from now on," Ikuto rolled his eyes and I giggled. I was glad that all the awkwardness of Ikuto seeing me naked went away after like three seconds.

School was starting in two weeks and I was kind of excited to become a sophomore, I couldn't wait to see Rima and Nagihiko again. They had been dating for a while, even Yaya is dating Kairi. I don't even want to talk about how long Kukai and Utau have been dating.

"What are you thinking about?" Ikuto asked wrapping his arms around me and pulling me against his chest before resting his head on my shoulder.

"Everyone is in a relationship except for Tadase. It's kind of sad." Ikuto just chuckled and tightened his arms around me. I rolled my eyes. Oh Ikuto, you're such a possessive boyfriend sometimes.

"Tadase just doesn't like anyone…have you ever pondered that he might be gay?" I froze for a second. Wait a minute…that actually made sense. There must be a reason why when he Chara transforms he always looks so girly, and his hair! What kind of guy has hair like that! I suddenly started giggling at the thought of Tadase's hair.

"That might actually be true." I said with a giggle. My giggles stopped and soon I was giggling about something else. I don't know why but I remembered my dream about getting married one day to either Tadase or Ikuto.

"What are you laughing about?" Ikuto asked, poking me in the ribs and making me laugh even more. Ikuto knew I was super ticklish; he was definitely using it against me.

"I remember having a dream three years ago about getting married to either you or Tadase. I'm glad it's eventually going to be you." I giggled again and turned around and kissed him gently.

"Who said I'm going to marry you? I don't think I'm crazy enough to get married to you." I made a face and smacked his shoulder. He laughed and kissed my cheek. "I was just kidding; of course we'll get married when you're older." I suddenly started wondering; doesn't Ikuto want to go to college?

"What about going to college?" I asked slightly cocking my head to the side. Ikuto smiled at me and shrugged. I wonder if he wanted to go to college, sure we would be separated, but at least he would have an education.

"When I was on the orchestra tour I was tutored, and I was thinking about becoming a high school music teacher as a backup career." I looked up at him and smiled. I knew how important playing the violin was for him.

"That sounds like something you could do." I smiled at him and tried to get out of his arms and failed. I rolled my eyes and just stayed where I was.

"I want you to meet my parents today." I froze for a second before relaxing in Ikuto's arms again. What am I so worried about, I'm sure Ikuto's parents will love me.

"They will love you." Ikuto kissed my cheek and I smiled and got up before going to the living room and plopping down on the couch. Ikuto's apartment is huge; I don't even want to ask how he afforded this. I heard my cell phone ring and found it in Ikuto's bedroom. I answered the phone quickly.

"Hello?" I plopped down next to Ikuto on the bed and he wrapped his arms around me and started kissing down my neck. I giggled and pushed him away.

"Amu, wanna hang out." I immediately knew it was Utau.

"Sure, I'll be at your apartment in a few minutes." I disconnected the phone and grabbed my purse from the bed. We were probably going to end up shopping anyways.

"Where are you going?" Ikuto asked wrapping his arms around me again. He kept doing that today…I wonder why.

"I'm going to hang out with your sister; she probably wants to complain about Kukai." I giggled when he poked my cheek. Damn, Ikuto was being really weird right now. I turned around and raised an eyebrow when I saw that he had his cat ears and tail. I was getting so confused right now.

"Do you want to know why I character changed right now?" Ikuto asked tightening his arms around me. I tried to wiggle out of them and froze and turned red when I realized what was poking me in the crotch. I squeaked and tried to get out of his arms again but he just held onto me.

"Ikuto stop being a pervert!" I yelled, slapping Ikuto and pushing him away. I knew for a fact that I was blushing all over right now. I stormed out of the room and Ran, Miki, Su, and Dia followed while Yoru went to see if Ikuto was okay.

"That stupid perverted cat!" I was still fuming when I got to Utau's apartment. She pulled me in quickly after I rang the doorbell.

"Kukai wants to have sex!" I just froze and stared at her for a while in shock. Utau seemed to be panicking like crazy and I held onto her shoulders and shook her back and forth until she was back to normal.

"What the fuck?" Why does Kukai want to have sex? He's only sixteen and Utau's only seventeen. I know for a fact that Utau is not ready for that step in their relationship yet.

"I know right! I'm totally not ready for that aspect of our relationship. Sure, we've kissed and touched and stuff, but we never went further than that!" Utau shook me back and forth now and I slapped her.

"Calm down, it's not like he asked you to marry him. Just tell him you aren't comfortable doing that yet!" Utau gave me a look that said 'I didn't think of that'…she could be such a moron sometimes.

"You're right, it's not that serious and I'm sure Kukai can wait…anyways, why were you blushing so much and muttering about Ikuto when you came here?

"Alright, so we were sitting on our bed and he wrapped his arms around me and suddenly he character changed and I got a little freaked out. Then, to top it off, I was wiggling and trying to get out of his arms, and he had a…hard on." Utau bit her lip for one second before starting to laugh at me.

"Ikuto was totally horny, that's why he character changed!" Utau was still giggling while she said that. I rolled my eyes and plopped down on the couch in the living room.

"Says you…the one scared to have sex with Kukai." I said making a face at her. Utau shut up after that and frowned at me. Five seconds later Kukai was inside the apartment.

"Why do you always come over when Amu is here?" Utau asked Kukai when he sat down next to her on the couch and wrapped his arm around her waist. She was a lot shorter than him now. Kukai really grew up in the past two years.

"Ikuto will probably get worried soon; I'll leave you two alone." I said winking at Utau. She blushed and I left the apartment laughing like crazy. I went back to Ikuto's place and sat down on the couch, still laughing about the Utau situation.

"Sorry about before…" Ikuto said walking into the room and standing against the wall, as though he was scared if he got too close he would rape me or something.

"It's okay, just don't be that perverted anymore." I giggled when Ikuto blushed; he jumped onto the couch and put his head in my lap and closed his eyes. His hair was always so soft, I unconsciously started stroking his hair and running my fingers through it. When I finally noticed what I was doing I moved my hands away and ran my fingers through my own hair.

"Why did you stop? That felt really nice." Ikuto said opening his eyes and looking up at me. I shrugged and he grabbed my wrists and put my hands back in his hair. I giggled and continued what I was doing before.

Ikuto fell asleep and I got off the couch and put a pillow under his head and covered him with a blanket before going to his bedroom and passing out on his bed.


Why is my pillow so warm, and hard? I moved around and tried to get comfortable and opened my eyes when I couldn't. The first thing I saw was Ikuto's chest and I sat up and stretched. I guess Ikuto came to the bedroom and fell asleep again. I checked the time and groaned. Shit, I missed dance practice.

"Ikuto, get up." I smacked him and he sat up and rubbed his eyes. He stretched around while he yawned and woke up and I couldn't help but think that he really was like a cat sometimes.

I went to the bathroom and then went downstairs to the kitchen to make dinner. I put my iPod into the dock and I smiled when I heard the first song, Where Them Girls At by David Guetta.

I decided to make something simple, like pasta. Su character changed with me and we started. I was singing along with the song and dancing and I didn't notice Ikuto walk into the room.

I heard Ikuto laughing when I attempted to rap. I blushed and continued to cook without singing. I finished making the pasta and Ikuto kept trying to steal some.

"Ikuto, be a good boy." I said, smacking his hand with a spoon. I heated the sauce and gave it to him; he winked at me and started eating.

"I don't even think you've grown up in the past three years." I said putting my hands on my hips and giving him a look. Ikuto shrugged and continued to eat his pasta.

I finished eating and rinsed out my plate before going to the bedroom and taking my phone and texting Gina to apologize for missing practice. I'm sure she was worried when I didn't show up. My phone rang after a few minutes and I saw that it was Utau…I wonder what happened after I left.

"KUKAI AND I HAD SEX!" I was deafened for a second and I just stood there in shock for a second. What happened to not being ready for that kind of thing?

"I thought you wanted to wait?" I furrowed my eyebrows and went downstairs and sat down in the living room.

"Things just happened, it was amazing, and Kukai was so romantic about it." I was still trying to digest this. I wonder if Kukai could give Ikuto some tips on how to be romantic, because I loved it when Ikuto was romantic.

"I still can't believe you had sex with Kukai." I heard Ikuto start coughing and I saw he had a water bottle in his hand and he seemed to be choking on water. Ikuto walked over and grabbed my phone.

"YOU HAD SEX WITH KUKAI!" Ikuto screamed into the phone and started pacing. Oh Utau…Ikuto is definitely going into protective older brother mode right now. I didn't even want to know what Ikuto was going to do to Kukai now…he might kill him. Ikuto disconnected my phone after a few minutes and chucked it at the wall. My poor phone…

"Ikuto, you didn't have to destroy my phone to show that you're angry." I stood up and stroked his cheek; he had this look on his face. Nothing good comes from that look of his. Ikuto pushed me away slightly before shoving on his shoes and walking out of the apartment. Oh god no, he's really going to do it, he's going to murder Kukai!

I ran after him and saw that he was just sitting in the park. I sat down next to him and he didn't really notice I was there until a few minutes later.

"I stormed out of the apartment thinking I was going to kill Kukai, and then I realized that Utau wouldn't have had sex with him unless she really loved him." Ikuto seemed upset about something, but I didn't pry. He would tell me when he was ready.

"I wonder if you'll ever love me enough to let me do that." I turned red and started spluttering nonsense. Ikuto just chuckled and looked up into the sky.

"Of course I'll love you that much." I said quietly after a few minutes. Ikuto turned and smiled at me before pulling me into a hug. I rested my head in the crook of his shoulder and he kept his arms tightly around me. He seemed so happy that I said that.

"I love you," Ikuto whispered into my ear. I blushed, but didn't say anything in response. I definitely wouldn't be able to say anything in this state of mind.

I love you too Ikuto, I thought silently. Ikuto kissed my head as though he heard my response. Knowing him, he probably knew exactly what I was thinking when he said that. Ikuto slightly loosened his hold and exhaled loudly.

"I might be going on a solo tour soon." Ikuto said silently. I froze and pushed him away. Is that why he had been trying so hard to always be with me?

"You're leaving me again?" I said angrily. Ikuto looked surprised at my choice of words. I got up and stormed away to somewhere I knew he wouldn't check. The dance studio, Gina had told me a while ago where the spare key was, just in case.

I opened the door and locked it once again before just sitting there. Ikuto was going back on tour again for god knows how long. He could be gone for a year! Is this what it would always be like? Only seeing Ikuto for a few months every now and again? I didn't want that, what kind of relationship would that be?!

I heard a few noises and I started to get a little scared…I didn't even have my cell phone with me since Ikuto gracefully threw it at the wall and broke it. I got up from where I was sitting and went upstairs and sat down next to the window.

I just sat there for a while thinking about it…I didn't want to be the clingy girlfriend that didn't let their boyfriend live their life. I decided that the next time I saw Ikuto, I would tell him to go on his tour and be successful for me.

I finally left the studio and started on the walk back to Ikuto's apartment. When I walked in through the door Ikuto had his hands on me and he seemed to be checking if I was hurt at all.

"I'm fine!" I squeaked when Ikuto started trailing his hands downwards. I pushed him away and sat down on the couch.

"I said I might be going on a tour, I never said that it was already decided." Ikuto said looking at me with a gentle look on his face. I bit my lip and crossed my legs on the couch and just looked at him for a little while.

"I just don't want us to be one of those couples that break up because they don't see each other enough." I said with a frown. Ikuto seemed kind of upset with what I was thinking right now.

"We will never be that couple. I was planning on not going anyways, I need my education first and if I want to do a solo tour afterwards I can, and by then you'll be old enough to come with me." Ikuto smiled and I blushed a little bit.

"I don't want to be the person to hold you back." I said, looking away from his eyes. He would probably be angry that I was thinking this way. Ikuto definitely didn't like it when I thought about things like that.

"You will never be the person that holds me back; you'll be the person that made me realize how stupid I'm being. I don't want to leave you again; I remember how lonely I was without my lovely strawberry." Ikuto teased. I blushed slightly and Ikuto kissed me gently before hugging me.

"We should probably sleep now." I said getting out of his arms and going upstairs to change into something comfortable for sleep. I put on a pair of Ikuto's sweatpants and a tank top before getting into bed. Ikuto came to the bedroom soon after and I fell asleep with his arms wrapped around me protectively. I'm glad Ikuto isn't going on a solo tour…I would miss him too much.

What a clichéd place to end…they make up and then go to sleep snuggled together. Sounds kinda romantic though, right? My laptop is currently burning my legs because it's so heated up. I can smell dryer sheets for some reason…I hope none of you are too mad at me for not updating for a while. I'm kind of hoping I'll reach ten reviews with this chapter; it really makes me sad when I don't get reviews! I have decided that this summer I will definitely improve my updating habits. I know this 'ah ha' moment should have come sooner, but I've gone through a lot of really bad things that I really don't want to describe. I would appreciate it if you yell at me if my updating habits go south again, it'll definitely make me update more just to prove that I can manage my time better so I can update faster. I'll be waiting for those reviews; I hope you enjoyed the chapter!
