I do not own anything.

Guest: Nagihiko is just Amu's manager(Rima)'s boyfriend. I thought I mentioned that, but I think I did that in another story instead of this one. So I'll state it right here.

"Amu, we need to talk." Ikuto grabbed her complete attention. The talk was always a thing to dread for every relationship. It almost never ended great. At least one person would go on running with tears trailing behind.

"Don't worry about it. We won't be seeing each other; our presence to the other won't remind them of the past." Amu tried to dismiss the subject entirely, covering her eyes with her soft pink bangs.

"We need to tie up the loose ends." Ikuto forced her attention to him with his firm voice.

"Ikuto, I forgive you so let's just forget this all and go on with life. We never were meant to be together; that's just the way it is." She tried to remind him about how cruel the world was.

"You're asking me to just forget it all – memories of you… of us? That's just the way it is? You're telling me that we can't be together just because of mere fate!" The person she thought she knew best blew up with passion and fiery; this was so different than she always remembered his level head to be. Yes, she's seen him have many emotions; but she's never seen him angry.

"Ikuto, take a deep breath and relax." Amu tried to calm down this new changed man.

"Sigh, Amu, what do you want? Do you still want to stay together? If the past is pulling you back, then – I'll leave you alone. We'll go our separate ways." Ikuto proposed to her, looking deep into the gates to her soul. Amu was trying to do everything she thought she had to do; however Ikuto was just doing whatever he felt.

"Why are you saying that right now?" Amu tensely asked.

"What do you mean?" He inquired, unable to understand her question.

"Why couldn't you have asked me when we were in high school? Why couldn't you have asked me that when we first met? Why now?" She threw three questions to get him to understand.

"I let the times slip by and went on thinking you'd still be there, but right now I know that if I don't do something this instant, you'll leave." The blue haired man sighed, remembering all his mistakes and assumptions.

"You can't always expect for a girl to still love you when you keep on hurting her." Amu told him, standing a foot away from him with eyes locked together.

"I know that now. I'll spend the rest of my life at your side, caring for you and loving you entirely – if you'll allow me." Kneeling down on one knee, Ikuto promised his entire future and life to her, just at the cost for her approval.

"You'll have to take responsibility for that." She smirked at him, lacing her arms around his neck.

"I know." With his all-knowing, signature smirk, he replied. "I love you, Hinamori Amu."

"I love you too." She smiled at him.


I know cliché ending, but you've got to admit that most of my stories are cliché so you'll just have to deal with it. I don't know which one to update: Sit, Double, or College Affair. Also I need to know if I should do the oneshots (Kutau or Rimahiko) before or after those three stories. Review your choice (Kutau or Rimahiko is not a choice. I'm finishing up the Rimahiko one.) Either Rimahiko oneshot or one of my three stories. Thanks for reading.
