Please Be Mine

Disclaimer: Hi everyone and welcome to the final chapter of my second song-fic!

Rika: About time you wrote this, it's been a month almost!

Me: * sweat drops* I'm sorry Rika, it's just that I had a really bad case of writers block in that long time, with this story anyways

Rika: Ok I'll forgive you THIS time, now write and put me back with MY goggle-head!

Me: Uh.sure Rika, ok here I go everyone, and as a side note I don't own digimon or the song " Back at One" by Brian McKnight!

Chapter three: Rika's catch

It was dark out; the lights in all the windows were on, illuminating the sidewalks and streets. The people that were out at night were going about their business, grateful that there was so much light. However, one figure was in a rush, running down the streets and he hated the fact that their was so much light around. " Damn it's too bright out here, I'll be seen!" Takato growled under his breath while continuing to run. Him and Guilmon had separated from each other about half an hour ago, which means it was now almost an hour after the small incident. " Small?" Takato asked to an invisible person in front of him, " it was a huge mistake!" While he had been singing with Guilmon, he had seen the look on Rika's face, a look that she only showed when she was deeply embarrassed or about to blow her top. I'll never be able to tell her, he thought silently. Takato shook his head and continued on his trek, not caring about the fresh tears that were pouring down his cheeks.

Its undeniable...that we should be together

Its unbelievable how I used to say that I found in her

The places you need to know, if you don't know just how I feel,

Then let me show you now that I'm for real

If all things in time, time will reveal

Yeah...

Unknown to Takato, his follower had managed to catch up to him and was now following behind him, hiding behind the nearest thing whenever he looked behind him. Damn it Takato just stand still for a second! Rika yelled in her mind. She couldn't blame him though; she knew that if he saw her he would just start running faster. " Why does Takato love me?" she asked herself, " I mean this is the last thing I expected from the leader of the tamers!" Shaking her head to clear her thoughts, Rika continued to follow closely behind Takato. She was about to grumble to herself about all the running again when she noticed Takato had finally stopped and was walking. Thank God! Rika thought, now, time to get some answers! Rika grinned and slowly made her way closer to the male tamer.

One, you're like a dream come true

Two, jus wanna be with you

Three, girl it's plain to see that you're the only one for me

Four, repeat steps one to three

Five, make you fall in love with me

If ever I believe our work is done, then I start Back at One.(yeah)

He had stopped running, the pain had finally gotten to him, and there was nothing he could do about it. " Might as well walk," he said to himself, " I've put enough distance between me and the others." Takato sighed and looked up at the sky, not really paying attention to where he was going, that is until he walked into a lamppost. " Ohh..I'm going to feel that in the morning" Takato groaned while clutching his head. He started to shake it, trying to clear out the pain; that is until he heard a sound. It was giggling, light and full of life, and also very familiar. " I guess your also feeling that right now huh Goggle-head?" Takato's eyes shot open and he stared directly in front of him. No It couldn't be her!? he thought to himself. Gathering up his courage Takato turned around and almost yelped in fright. There leaning up against the side of a building was Rika, one of her trademark grins across her face. " I guess it's true," Rika said while she motioned to the post he just ran into, " love does hurt."

So incredible, the way things work themselves out

And all emotional, once you know that its all about babe

And undesirable for us to be apart

Never would of made it very far

Cause you know that you got the keys to my heart

Cause...

She stood there watching him, almost laughing herself when he blushed and looked to the ground at her comment. " He looks cute when he does that, " she said to herself. Then almost immediately her eyes opened wide when she realized what she had said. Oh My God I actually said that!?!!? she thought, not even noticing the look of bewilderment on Takato's face. " Uh Rika are you ok?" Takato's voice called to her. Rika on her part shook her head and mentally cursed herself for not listening to Takato. " Yeah I'm fine, were you trying to say something?" Takato blushed again and looked down, earning another grin from Rika. " Well actually I wanted to apologize for what I did with Guilmon, I really am sorry about it, please don't hit me!" Takato cowered and waited for the blow, but it never came, he looked up to see that Rika was lost deep in thought. " Uh Rika, hey Rika are you sure your ok?" Rika on her part nodded and then looked up at him. " Takato?" she questioned. " Yeah Rika?" She looked at him, and he saw sincerity in her eyes. " Did you really meen what you said back there?"

One, you're like a dream come true

Two, jus wanna be with you

Three, girl it's plain to see that you're the only one for me

Four, repeat steps one to three

Five, make you fall in love with me

If ever I believe our work is done, then I start Back at One.

" What were you thinking?!?! You loving me, your crazy!!" He had expected her to say that to him, not the question that she had just asked. " Uh meen what Rika?" he asked nervously while scratching the back of his head. Rika looked at him and sighed then shook her head. " Goggle- head, Takato, look I'm not what I used to be four years ago, I won't throttle you for telling the truth, now lying, THAT I would." She grinned after she said that while he just chuckled a bit nervously. " Well go on Takato, tell me is it true what you said?" Takato turned red and tried desperately to find the words to say. " W-Well R-Rika I don't actually think." he stopped when she gave him a stern look. " Ok ok fine I admit it I-I-I love you Rika!" Takato stood there breathing hard as she looked back at him. There was an uncanny silence between the two before Rika finally broke it. " Why?" she asked.

Say farewell to the dark night

I see the coming of the sun

I feel like a little child whose life has just begun

You came and reached into the light

Into this lonely heart of mine

You threw out the life line - just in the Nick of Tiimmmeeee...

That one little question was all she wanted to know, why did he love her? " I don't know if I can explain it Rika, it's a little long," he began to say. " Well I'm not going anywhere, so go right ahead Takato." She watched him nod and then look up at the sky before he started to talk to her. " Well Rika I did like Jeri at first, well that is until I found she liked me as a friend and Henry more, after that I was distraught and went through the park, you remember what happened next right?" Rika nodded at Takato's question, of course she remembered what happened after that, she had been in the park that day. She had been walking through it as a short cut when she ran into Takato who was crying. As it turns out she had found out about what happened with Jeri and had calmed him down. They left and he thanked her, but she had seen something in his eyes when he said goodbye to her that day, a sort of sparkle was in them. " Takato you don't meen??" she asked towards the male tamer. Takato smiled and nodded his head at her, proving her conclusion right. " Yes Rika from that day and on I started to have feelings towards you, consequently I found out Guilmon also liked Renamon and the two of us looked for ways to tell you two but never found any until." he trailed off. " Until today," she finished for him. " Yep," Takato said to her while looking back up at the sky, " until today."

One, you're like a dream come true

Two, jus wanna be with you

Three, girl it's plain to see that you're the only one for me

Four, repeat steps one to three

Five, make you fall in love with me

If ever I believe our work is done, then I start Back at One.

He sat there in silence with her, both not saying a word and both looking up at the stars. " Rika?" he asked finally breaking the silence between the two. " Yeah Takato?" " Well I don't want to be hurt or anything but, do you think there is any small chance you like me to?" He regretted saying those words the moment they left his mouth because a long silence soon followed them. " Rika I'm sorry for asking, please don't!!" he was silenced by Rika; who had raised her hand. " Takato its ok, don't worry, you asked me the question and you do deserve an answer," she stated simply. Takato on his part looked at her strangely. " When did you become like that?" he asked. Rika on her part chuckled and looked at him before responding. " My grandmother, I've learned a few things from her over the years." Takato nodded his head, accepting her answer and then looked into her violet eyes with his brown ones. " So then Rika what's the answer?" he asked, half-afraid and half-anxious. Rika smirked at him and motioned him to come closer. Takato did so only to have Rika wrap her hands around him and pull him close. " Huh Rika what's?!?!?" he started to say before Rika put her finger on his lips and smirked again. " Takato you wanted your answer and here it is, now shut up and kiss me." Takato on his part grinned as he looked at Rika, her face illuminated by the moonlight. " Yes ma'am," he said before doing just that.
