A-Note: Hey peoples :) So I through this together after I finished my Naruto Fic and my Chaseshipping fic because I did not want you guys to think I forgot about you :) So I hope you like it; it is slightly darker then the stuff I have been writing lately, but still fluffy. Love you people :) Sorry for spelling and grammar.
Summary: Joey always had to fight to make it through the day. But, when hitting rock-bottom puts him in the hospital. He is finally ready to give up. Will a certain blue-eyed CEO convince him that he is not alone anymore? Will the puppy finally find the home he hass always dreamed of? AU
I'm Here…So Deal With it
It is funny when you think about it really. When you finally think you have fixed one thing in your fucked up life, all of your other problems seem to disappear. I should have seen it coming, it is like I always say "when life goes good for me, I get freaked out, because something bad is not far away." I was stupid to think that Seto would like me, I am meant to be alone, it is my destiny…
From all of the horror movies I have watched, I figure, when someone is standing over you with a knife and that killer look in their eye. Most people start screaming for their life, me, I do nothing. I just star into those cold eyes, feeling relief that I can stop trying to fix everything, and imagine what it would be like…wrapped in Seto's arms.
Twelve Days Later…
When I opened my eyes again I saw a lot of white. I was happy for a split second…I had almost forgotten what that felt like. But, once I realized I was in a hospital, I felt my shoulders tense as the stress kept building. I tried to move myself into a sitting position, but the sharp pains that came from well…everywhere, kept me in the same position. I sound of my door opening cleared my mind, then the doctor with purple hair walked in, and I realized I was on some really strong drugs.
"Great your awake! I am Dr. Winstead, but please call me V." He was talking, I was not sure if this was a good thing or a bad thing?
"Are you really here? Or are these drugs just that good? Because you have purple hair, and I am pretty sure that is not normal". He smiled, and sat on the chair next to my bed.
"I wish I could say this was strange. Let me see. Yes, I am real, the drugs are not that great, and when you are a best trauma surgeon/psychiatrist to ever walk the floors of this hospital, then they let you look any way you want." I could not tell if he was being serious, or if he was just trying to make me laugh.
"Your living proof of my awesomeness! I mean seriously, when they brought you to me over week ago, everyone pretty much gave up on you. But I managed to save your life, and I would appreciate it, if you did not let my hard work go to waste. Now that you know me, how about you tell me something about you? Like, oh like maybe, your name? Or, why you were found by the police with an older man who claims that you attacked him, even though he had no injuries, and you were almost beaten to death?" He liked to get to the point, I admired that about him.
"My name is John Doe, and I did not attack that older guy. We just got into it because I was being cocky, and he just put me in my place." I could not look into his eyes when I told the lie. So he finally left me…just like everyone else.
"Right, and I am married with a wife that I love every much." I looked at him and smiled.
"That is great, I wish someone loved me." He face palmed.
"Sweetie, I am totally gay. My hairs purple! I am so gay I cannot even spell stright…I always forget that bloody a." I smiled and that seemed to make him happy.
He sighed. "So you really are really going to stick to that story?" I nodded, and he seemed disappointed.
"A guy with a big heart like you deserves someone special. Do not worry sweetheart, just hold on. I am sure someone is just killing themselves trying to find you." I felt my heart constrict. I wished more than anything I could believe his words, and wait around for the love of my life to find me. But it was time to face reality, and the truth is, I am not worth it.
I did not give him a reply; I could not lie to him anymore. He did so much for me, and I did not want to hurt him anymore…I am tired of hurting people. I turned away from him and snuggled into my sheets. I tried to will the pain to stop, but nothing worked.
"I guess sleep is probably the best thing for you now sweetie. I know it is not what you want to hear, but I have to try to find out who you are." After that he got up and left. Great, now I get to add more stress on my plate. Once he contacts the school he is going to figure out that I am totally broke. What small amount we did have, dad would have surely taken when he left me to die…
The Next Day…
When I woke up again I was staring at orange juice, breakfast and a note. "Good afternoon sweetie! Do not worry about the amount of sleeping you doing, it is totally normal for you to sleep most of the day away, since your body needs to recover. So Joey, I really like your name, it suits you. I should have told you that it is pointless to hide things from me, I always figure things out. So I know the breakfast seems really good for a hospital, and that is mainly because it is not from here. The really cute brunette, that refuses to leave your side, brought it this morning before he fell asleep next to you! Ps. He told me your name to ;)"
I slowly turned around, and sure enough, the guy that I was stupid enough to think would actually like me is, asleep in the chair next to my bed. There is only one way this could be possible…they switched my medications.
I knew touching him was the only way I would know for sure that he was real, but I was scared. A small part of me wanted to believe he was actually here, I let out a quiet sigh, quickly ran my hand through his hair, and when I actually felt it touch my skin I was very confused. He quietly began to stir, and I could not remove my hand from his hair…it felt to nice.
"I could get used to waking up like that." When he opened his eyes our faces were no more than a few inches apart. I had never seen them up close before, and I did not think it was possible for the blue orbs to get more beautiful.
"Sorry, I could not tell if you were really here or not." I felt the blush creep onto my face. "Why are you here Kaiba?" He had this weird look in his eyes.
"Well you were gone for over a week, and no one knew where you were. I tried to find your friends so I could ask them, but you do not seem to have any…. Then a police officer shows up one day with a picture of you and asks if you go to this school. So I told him you did, bribed him with money, and he brought me to you without letting anyone else know." I could not figure out why he was going through so much trouble. I mean we barely knew each other, our lockers are next to one another, but we never talk and we share one class. "Getting information out of that doctor of yours was impossible, but he did show me where you were in exchange for your name."
"You still did not answer the question." I hide my eyes under my long bangs, I do not know why this was happening to me? Was my father's attempt at killing me not bad enough? Did life really have to get my hopes up?
"Oh, well you are my Puppy and I am here to take you home." I stared at him wide-eyed.
"What? We barely know each other? Why would you want me? I am not some weird dog sex-slave that you can just rescue and then expect me to sleep with you whenever you get horny! I may have a shitty life, but I have been alone for all of it. It was hard but I accepted it. I am not some little kid; I know now that I am going to be alone for the rest of my life." I wanted to cry, it hurt more than I thought it would, to actually say it out loud. I am going to be alone…forever. But the stupid thing is, for a moment there, I actually thought I had gotten my prince charming.
"Well I have a new reality for you to accept. I am here and I am not going anywhere. You are mine now, and I am not going to let that sorry excuse for a father ever hurt you again! We can get to know each other, that is how relationships work. I call you puppy because it is cute and it suits you, so consider it my special nickname for you…that I can only call you!" He did not seem mad he just seemed hurt and maybe a little possessive…
"How did you find out the truth?" I could not hide the shock from my voice.
"They did a DNA test that proved you were related to the guy who beat you up. He is in jail now, so he will not be able to hurt you anymore." I could not stop the tears from falling this time, but I was not prepared for actually having his arms around me.
"Everything is my fault. If I had been a better person, maybe everything would have worked out for me, and maybe I would have actually been able to get the one thing I have always wanted." He hugged me closer.
"What is that Puppy?" I took a deep breath, I was finally ready to let him go and face my destiny.
"You." I closed my eyes and waited for him to let me go and storm out of the room. Instead I felt his warm lips on mine.
"Puppy, have you not been listen to my demands? You already have me. You just need to accept it." I stared in to those blue eyes and nodded, I figure I have nothing else to lose.
When I was about to pull him in for another kiss he stopped me. I felt like a could not breathe "You just have to promise me something."
"Anything." I whispered grasping at the back of his trench coat.
"Never forget that I like you for who you are, and I do not want you to change a damn thing." I nodded and began to cry again. "Also, call me Seto".
One Year Later…
"Seto! Where are you?" I could not believe it has only been a year, it feels like another lifetime. I managed to work through some of my problems with weekly therapy sessions with V, and Seto's continuing support.
"I am in here Puppy!" I walked into his office and found him typing away at his computer. Seto has been running his company and going to school for years, but since we graduated a few months ago he started working more often than before.
"Working again? Want to take a break and spend some time with your boyfriend?" He looked up and smiled at me.
"As a recall, it was you who said we needed to take a break from playing 'fetch' this morning and that I needed to get some work done?" I gave him a small smile and felt my heart constrict.
"Well since it is our anniversary, I wanted to give you something for everything you have done for me." He smiled back, came over, and pulled me in for a kiss.
"And what do you have for me?" He said keeping me in his arms.
I held out both of my hands, opened them and he stared at me with a confused look on his face. "This is my key to the house." I said holding up my right hand, as he looked at me with some fear in his eyes.
"This is a lame present I got for you today" I said holding up the small box, his eyes changed to a look of confusion.
"My gift is that I am giving you a choice. You can choose to break this off now without hurting me, or you can take this lame gift and we can continue doing this." It has taken some time, but now I know why most people in horror movies scream. This killer has their life in his hand, the killer alone has the power to take them away from their dreams. I have never been 'most people', but for the first time I can lose something I actually value…for the first time I did not want to die.
He smiled at me and pulled me into his arms. "What is it going to take for you to realize that I am never letting you go, I love you." I was crying again, but I was happy, and I never wanted to lose this feeling. Seto took the box from my left hand and slowly closed my right.
He actually smiled when he saw what was inside. A simple locket was inside the box, with a picture of the two of us during our first date. He gave me a quick kiss and I whispered "I love you too Seto." He walked over to his desk and pulled out a box of his own. He walked over and got down on one knee, my heart stopped.
"Joey Wheeler, I am here in front of you offering my heart, and everything that comes with it, in exchange for yours and everything that comes with you. I am hoping that when you are my husband, you will finally accept that as long as I can breathe you, will never be alone again. What I am asking is do you want to be with me forever?"
I fell to my knees with tears running down my face and said "yes." Then Seto pulled me into our longest kiss yet and I knew that everything would be okay.
