Wow. Hey, guess what? I'm not dead… yet. I may still die after exams are done. Anyway, I am managing to just get the next chapter out before exams which I didn't think would happen. Sorry I've been gone for so long, I seemed to have just dropped off of the face of the internet. Sorry about that, but I've just been very busy lately and as much as I hate to say it, fanfiction does tend to be near the bottom of my list of priorities.
So just to let you guys know there will be two more chapters of this story. I am holding a contest for what I do next because I am a little unsure. So, this is what's happening. You guys PM me with a pairing and a prompt. Now I may not know the pairing. It doesn't have to be anime, but I would prefer that it is. If I don't know the pairing or what they're from I will tell you and you can either give me a new paring or tell me what anime it's from and I may watch it. Anyway here are the rules in short,
PM me a pairing and prompt.
If you can, create an artwork for your pairing and give me the link.
Basically most creative wins.
Contest will be closed one week after the end of this story
So do that and each entry will be taken into consideration. So, go do that. Yeah… On another note anyone planning on buying a next gen. system?
Anyway, thanks for…

I woke up with a start and I sat for as moment trying to regain my breath. I couldn't even remember what had made me wake up so suddenly. It was then that I noticed an unusual warmth at my side. I looked down and realised that L was curled up next to me, his breathing even, indicating that he was still asleep. I felt a faint blush rise to my cheeks as L shifted making his shirt ride up just enough that I could see a sliver of his very pale skin. I briefly wondered how smooth it would be to the touch before I realised what I was doing a quickly looked away from him and sighed as I ran a hand through my hair, making my bedhead even worse than it already was. I just can't do this, I thought to myself. No matter how much I wanted it I knew my facts. The facts the he is L and I am Kira and that we are on opposite sides. I hated this, I wanted to lash out and someone and I knew that it would be L who bore the brunt of it. I wish that everything else could just go away and we could be just Light and just L. I ran my fingers through L's hair a few times before slowly breaking away from him, not wanting to wake him up. Unfortunately it wasn't as if I could just get up and shower so I was stuck laying in the bed beside L. It didn't take long for him to move back to my side, most likely seeking the warmth of my body. I didn't particularly want him to wake up with the two of us in such a position so I moved away from him again. After a few minutes I once again found L to be right next to me. Looking to my right I found that I couldn't move over any farther or else I would risk falling off of the bed. I gave up trying to move away from him and just laid there hoping that he would eventually move away from me. Soon enough L started to stir and slowly opened his eyes to look up at me. I could tell that he was still half asleep when he murmured my name as a question. For a moment it looked as if he was just going to go back to sleep when suddenly he sat up, finally noticing the position that we were in. He looked at me trying to keep his face neutral, but I could see a hint of shock in his eyes,
"What are you doing?" he asked me calmly. I rolled my eyes. Obviously everything is my fault.
"I didn't do anything. You were the one who curled up to me when we were sleeping. I tried to move away but you just continued to move closer," I watched in disbelief as a slight pinkness rose to his cheeks.
"It must just be because it was cold and your body provided warmth," he replied. I didn't bother to poke a hole in that flimsy excuse y saying that the room was actually rather warm. We sunk into a cold silence neither one of us daring to look at the other. I wanted to talk to him about what had happened the other day, but I just couldn't bring myself to do it. I didn't want our relationship to change. I knew that it couldn't change if I wanted to continue to be Kira. I wouldn't be able to kill L if we became something more than what we were now. I can't just give up my ideals like that, but I also can't just let L go and always be miserable with 'what ifs' floating around in my head for the rest of my life. For once I didn't know what to do. I looked over at L who also seemed to be deep in thought.
"Hey, Ryuzaki?" I asked, breaking him out of his thoughts. He turned to look at me and nodded to signal that he was listening. "I… I, um," I couldn't say it. As much as I wanted to I couldn't tell him how I felt. It seemed like L was getting impatient with me as I wasn't saying anything. I shook my head lightly. "No, never mind, it's nothing,"
This was impossible. L was still insisting that we work despite the fact that nothing had happened for some time. If anyone knew that it was useless it would be me, but of course I couldn't say anything like that for fear of revealing who I am. So now, because of that, I was stuck on a computer looking for clues that I knew didn't exist. Even if they did exist I wasn't about to say anything. I was completely focused on L who seemed to be in his own little world. His hand rested on the mouse, not moving, as he stared blankly at the screen. I could tell that he was definitely not reading anything by the faraway look in his eyes. I had been paying too much attention to him and it needed to stop. If this continued I knew that it wouldn't be long until I slipped up and told him one of my many secrets.
I didn't want to go to sleep feeling like this. I felt horrible. I wanted to tell L about the way I felt so badly yet I didn't want to tell him just as much. I watched L as he climbed into the bed and went to turn on his laptop for the first time in a few nights. I turned to him with an incredulous expression.
"What are you doing?" I asked and he looked at me strangely.
"Exactly what it looks like, I am turning on my computer to do some more research on Kira," he replied.
"No you're not," I reached over and shut his laptop. "You are going to sleep,"
"But I have already spent more time sleeping this week then I should allow myself," he said, trying to look angry but it looked more like he was pouting.
"And you should keep it like that. Despite what you believe people, including you, really do function better with sleep," He glared at me for a moment before moving his computer to the small table beside him and lying down. I followed suit, smiling lightly.
