Disclaimer: I don't own Loveless, or Alicia Keyes song "That's how strong my love is", which inspired me to write this fic.

One warm spring afternoon fighter and sacrifice spent time together in Soubi's apartment. Ignoring his canvas, paying no attention to his books and with both cell phones put away and silent, they were at peace. On the king sized mattress Ritsuka lay on Soubi's lap. As hours passed, long fingers ran through soft dark locks. Both were deep in thought, but they were not lost.

* Some people may call me crazy for falling in love with you…

That's only because no one could ever understand. You rescued me from the pit I was set to fall into. I didn't believe in anything, particularly not myself, and especially not love after Seimei died.

* They can take me and lock me away but there's nothing those bars can do…

You are my sacrifice, and I am your fighter. It was ordered of me to start, however soon after meeting you I realized it was destined. I will always protect you. I can never be beaten with you at my side.

* All that matters, I'm telling you, is you and me only…

I don't care what reasons, or false logic anyone throws at us, we are free to make our own decisions. There is freedom for us both- in spite of it all, we find that together.

* Through the shake of an earthquake I will never fall, that's how strong my love is…

No matter what, I will never leave your side. Together we are unstoppable. We have a love that cannot be penetrated by any sort of attack.

Together finally neither male was lost, both were right where they belonged.

Hope you liked it, please review.

AN: If you didn't catch it, with the lines "Both were deep in thought, but they were not lost", I meant they weren't lost in thought. I greatly enjoy playing with words, phrases, and the like.
