I'm so sorry that i always take forever to update my stories!
I'm also sorry that I'm so bad at writing an actual story. I like the one shot collection much better.
And this is the last chapter! I hope you're pleased with how it ends.
And if not, then I'm sorry! But this is only my second actual story and i'm so used to one shots that i am incapable of writing a story of acceptable length.
I feel like all i ever do apologize...
Of course I couldn't sleep.
I just lay there trying my hardest to doze off, to concentrate on anything other than Maka's even breathing in the bed next to me.
My meister fell asleep in no time while I struggled with a bout of insomnia, my mind on overdrive.
Why was I so surprised that she didn't have feelings for me like that?
I really shouldn't be. She was always pretty straight forward and platonic.
But I guess I was just holding out some hope that we could eventually be something. I was wishing and waiting for the day that Maka realized that she was madly in love with me. Okay, maybe not madly in love… but that she at least had some feelings for me. Obviously that was too much to ask for.
Holy shit, I'm never going to fall asleep. Maybe I should get up and go-
What the fuck?
"Don't… stop. Mmmhmm."
Holy fuck, is Maka having a dirty dream? No, this can't be happening, not tonight of all nights. Just when I was positive that my night couldn't get any worse, my meister started mewling in pleasure.
It's like she's torturing me or something. What the hell did I ever do to her?! I do not deserve this right now!
If she doesn't calm the frick down, I'm gonna have to go sleep in the lobby or something. Anywhere that I can't hear this anymore!
It was at that moment that Maka let out particularly delicious sigh, accompanied by, "Souuul."
It was almost a whisper, but I heard it loud and clear, as if she had been shouting.
Okay, I am so 100% DONE.
I jumped up from my twin sized mattress and went over to Maka's.
"Hey, Maka. Maka! Wake up." I shook her shoulder lightly so I wouldn't startle her awake.
"Huh? Wha- I… Soul? What's wrong?" Oh, sweet Death, she is so cute when she gets confused!
"Nothing is wrong Maka." Well, not really.
"Then what the hell did you just wake me up for?" Oh no, here comes Cranky Maka. I sat down on her bed and she scooted away from me in anger.
"Well actually, you woke me up because you were talking in your sleep."
"I do not talk in my sleep."
"Yeah you do. And, just so you know, I could tell you were really enjoying that dream. Sorry I had to wake you up, but you were getting pretty loud." I couldn't keep the smirk off of my face.
"What are you-? Ohh, I… Um." Maka's face morphed from precious confusion, to painful confusion, to recognition, and last but not least, mortification.
"H-how much of that did you hear…?"
"Too much." I'm trying not to smile even more, so she doesn't slaughter me.
"Soul. I'm being serious. What did you hear?"
"I heard you making, uh… weird noises. And then you said my name." I stumbled awkwardly over the first sentence and whispered the second one.
"And then I did what?" Come on, seriously?
"You er- you said my name."
"I know. I was just hoping maybe you didn't hear that part. Oh well, I guess. You know now."
"I know what? What are you talking about?"
I had been awkwardly staring down at my clammy hands in my lap so I didn't have to look at Maka, but when she said that I looked up, confused. And I saw my meister sitting up, pushing back her covers, and now her face was curiously close to mine, her emerald eyes burning into my crimson ones.
"You know that I had a sex dream about you. And you know that you don't just have dreams like that for no reason."
No fucking way! Is this real life right now?!
"Maka, I-" Too bad I didn't get to finish that thought, due to the lips that were suddenly pressed against my own.
At first I was surprised so my body went rigid, but as soon as I realized that this is real life I regained movement. I brought my hands up and gently cupped her face. The kisses started out light, soft, gentle, and hesitant, but they gradually became deeper, more passionate, more hungry.
Maka had been sitting in my lap, but she apparently decided this was no longer satisfactory; she pushed me down and put a knee on either side of my waist, straddling me.
After a few minutes, her kissed were trailing down my neck and becoming more urgent as Maka's hands were pulling at my shirt.
"Wait, Maka." I started to speak, but she ignored me and just kept on kissing me and trying to strip me. Not that this was really a problem. Wait, yes it is! Bad Soul! Come on, stay focused.
"Maka, really, slow down." I tried to pull her hands away from me, but she was having none of that. And I knew that I needed to stop her wonderfully wondering hands before she got to the Point of No Return. Damn, why do I have to be such a nice guy?!
Just as Maka's perfect little hands reached for the waistband of my sweatpants, I grabbed her around her waist, flipped her onto the bed next to me so was no longer straddling me, and jumped back to my own bed as quickly as possible.
"Soul…?" My meister looked up at me with those big doe eyes, from underneath those beautiful eyelashes and furrowed her brow in adorable confusion. Actually, she looked kind of… hurt?
Oh shit! Of course she looks hurt, I just threw her off of me and ran across the room from her! She probably thinks I'm disgusted with her or something.
"No, Maka! It's not like that at all! I like you, a lot. More than you could know. But I just think that this is going a little fast and maybe we should slow down and talk about this or something." Really cool, Soul. I was babbling on so fast that there was no way she got all of that, because I didn't even catch all of it.
"Oh… Well, if you want to talk, then talk."
Umm. I didn't plan this far ahead in my mind. I just felt like we really needed to talk, I didn't actually bother to think of what we should be talking about.
"Okaaaay. So. You like me. I like you… We like each other."
While I was making a complete ass of myself, Maka wasn't even trying to hide her laughter.
"Yes Soul. We like each other, great observation." Well that didn't go as planned. I was hoped that she would elaborate on the subject, or do something other than repeat what I just repeated.
"Well, I just didn't want to rush into anything we're going to regret."
"What?" Maka stood up, put her hands on her hips, cocked her head slightly to the side, and made her angry face at me.
"I just mean that I thought we should slow down and think for a minute, before we did anything serious." She didn't look impressed, so this was obviously still the wrong answer.
"Are you saying that if you had gone any further with me you would have regretted it? As in, it would have been a mistake?"
Double shit. While she spoke, Maka slowly walked toward me, and in that moment I feared for my life. By the time she was done talking, she was standing over me and I had been backing away from her the whole time without noticing.
She cocked her head to the other side. "Well, Soul? What is it? Am I not cool enough for you? Too flat chested? Ughh, men disgust me. You're all the-"
"Maka, what the hell are you talking about? You know damn well that none of that is true. If anything, I'm not cool enough for you. And flat chested? Really? That hasn't been true for a few years, and we both know it. As for the whole, All-Men-Are-Filthy-Pigs deal, I thought you were over that? Just because your so called father is physically incapable of being faithful doesn't mean all guys are as dumb as him. And what I meant when I said I didn't want to do anything we'd regret, I pretty much meant that I'm not ready for that and I assumed that you aren't either."
Well that definitely wasn't cool.
Maka didn't say anything for a minute, and that scared me. I was sitting there assuming the worst, just like Maka did earlier.
"Oh. Wow, Soul, I had no idea… Now I feel like an ass."
"Well, you should." Maka glared at me as I kept a straight face for as long as I could, then I cracked a smile.
"Come on, you know I'm kidding!"
"You're such a jerk sometimes, Soul Eater!" She jumped on me and tried to pin to the mattress like a wrestler or something.
"You're funny if you think I'm gonna let you win! Now that you know how I feel about you, I don't have to pretend to be nice to you anymore!" I flipped her and pinned her arms over her head.
"So you're telling that for the past three years you've been pretending to be nice to me? You really suck at being nice!" AT that, my meister leaned up and closed the distance between our mouths. I let go of her wrists and used one hand to support some of my weight and the other one went to Maka.
While I preoccupied making out with my roommate, she took advantage of the situation and flipped us so that she was pinning my arms over my head.
"No fair! That's cheating."
"Tsk, tsk. Soul, you should always have your guard up!"
She's a crafty little one.
But that's why I love her.
