Chapter 9 ~ Overload
~ MAKA'S POV ~
"CUT!" I heard the director call. Right now I was shooting a movie with Melody. We were in the same movie but I had a bigger lead then her considering I have been in the acting business a bit longer then her. We have been shooting this movie nonstop. I stay up late because of homework so I only get five hours of sleep. It doesn't bother me though, I'm used it.
"Good job Kami!" Melody said. I smiled.
"You too! You're great!" I said. Melody has violet eyes and red hair in her usual ponytail. We're the same age too. "Keep it up! I'll see you tomorrow." I said. As I started walking I tripped but I regained my senses and stopped myself."
"Hey Kami are you okay? You seem tired. You're not wearing yourself out are you? You know you can always take a break." She said helping me stand a bit. I smiled.
"I'm fine. I can handle myself. Don't worry about me." I said. She only nodded. "Trust me okay."
"Alright, I trust you." She said. We both headed off to our dressing rooms ready to go home. I got to my and closed the door. Before I could even sit down, I felt someone hug me from behind. I jumped a bit and then heard someone laughing. I looked back to see Soul laughing.
"What the heck was that for and what are you doing here?" I asked.
"I came to see you and I thought let's scare the crap out you." He said. I rolled my eyes.
"You're parents are really okay with you knowing my secret?" I asked. Over the weekend, when I was sick and was staying at Soul's house and the whole rain incident, Soul and I explained to his parents and brother how he knew my secret. His brother thought he was lying but then believed him after Soul told him a bit more. His parents were okay with it as long as Soul keeps his promise. Ever since then though, Soul and I have gotten a bit closer. What he said to me before I drifted off to sleep was still bothering me. Was that a dream or was it real? I don't know, I'll figure it out later.
"Yeah my parents are okay with it. As long as I keep my promise it's all good with them." He said. I only nodded because I felt dizzy for some reason. I went to get a bottle of water and I drank some of it. I tried to put it back on the table but I missed and it fell, spilling the water everywhere. Soul helped me clean up. "Hey you sure you okay?"
"Of course I am what makes you think that?" I said. I sat down and started to the blue contacts in.
"You know, if you're tired, you can take a break and just rest. My parents will be fine with it." He said.
"Your parents are expecting this movie and my soundtrack done soon. I can't let them down." I said standing up after putting my contacts in. "Now get out, I need to change." I said pushing him out of my dressing room. I closed the door and sighed. 'I'll just rest later. I have my work to do.'
~ SOUL'S POV ~
I stared at her closed door. My parents would be fine if she took a break. They love her, not as an idol but as a person. She was kind, smart, strong, hardworking, and amazing. I could go on about her. I just love her they way she is. That's right; I'm in love with her. I realized it ever since she trusted me. Before then I just liked her. When I found out she was and idol, sure that surprised me, but I don't just love he because of that. I love her for who she is. I let it slip that I said out loud when she was sick, but I don't think she heard me. I don't want to tell her yet because she was always busy. Plus, I'm scared for rejection.
I sighed. She is pushing herself to hard. Can't she take a break? I don't know if this is even healthy for her. I waited a bit longer until her door opened. Out came Maka with her brown hair and blue eyes. I liked her green eyes better. She was also wearing a jacket, jeans, and old converse. Her hair was also in a side braid. She looked confused.
"You waited here?" she asked.
"Yeah, I want to come with you today to your appointments. Is that okay?" I asked.
"Yeah, it's fine." She yawned. "Just make sure you can keep up with me." I rolled my eyes. 'I don't think you can keep up with your own schedule…'
"You okay, you look sleepy." I walked up closer to her and it looked like she had sleep in her eyes. "How long do you sleep?"
"I'm not sleepy and I got to bed at 1:30 and wake up at 6:30." She said with another yawn. I sighed.
"You need more sleep than that." I said.
"Soul I'm fine. Trust me." She said. I sighed.
"Alright fine, if you say so." I said. She smiled and walked off to her next assignment. I followed her just to make sure she really was okay. Every once in a while she would yawn or close her eyes for a bit. It was starting to worry me. Maka now had dance practice but she was taking a break, but really she was sleeping by hiding her face so no one can see her. They called her name and her head shot up. I sighed.
"So you can tell too." I heard. I looked over to see Kami's manager or Maka's aunt, Blair. "She is always tired. She tries to sleep whenever she can, but it's not enough."
"She is like that at school too." I said.
"My poor Maka-chan!" She pouted. "I hope she will be okay." I nodded. 'I do too.'
The next day at school Maka looked more worn out than ever. I walked into class to see Maka sleeping at her desk. I walked over to her and sighed. She looked exhausted. I tapped her shoulder and she shot up.
"I'm okay!" she said. I faced palmed.
"Yeah you totally are." I said and she glared at me. I sighed. "Why are your eyes green?" she then pulled out a small mirror and put her contacts in. "Are you sure you are okay?"
"How many times do I have to say it? I'm fine. I understand you're worried about me, but I'm fine." She said and turned to read a book. I sighed.
Maka was like that all day. She was tired and constantly yawning. She was taking this too far. She was being too stubborn. I was really worried. After class it was time for lunch, and Maka looked like she was going to collapse. I saw her at her locker. She was yawning and rubbing sleep out her eyes. I walked over to her.
"You have work today right?" I asked.
"Yeah, why?" she asked.
"You're not going." I said. She looked shocked.
"What do you mean?" she said a bit mad.
"I don't think you should go. Not in the condition you're in. I think you should rest for today." I said. Maka rolled her eyes.
"Soul I told you I'm okay. I can handle myself." She said.
"That's hard to believe when you can barely stand right now." I said.
"Soul I told you fine! I'm okay!" she yelled a bit. She then fell to her knees.
"MAKA!" I said and I caught her. She was asleep now. "I told you couldn't handle it." I whispered. I then picked her up bridal style. "You need to stop being stubborn."
~ MAKA'S POV ~
I then woke up in what looked like the nurses office. I sat up and looked around. Who brought me here? Why am I here? "You're up." I heard. I looked to see Soul holding a water bottle for me. He tossed it to me and I caught it. He took a seat next to me. "You okay?" he asked.
"Yeah, I feel a lot better now. Why am I here and what time is it?" I asked.
"I brought you here because you collapsed and we have ten minutes till school lets us out. So 3:20 basically." He said. I drank half of the water.
"Thank you Soul." He looked up at me. "Thank you for helping me out again." This is the second time I need his help. I then felt him pat my head. I looked up to see him smiling.
"It's cool. You at least got some sleep right?" I nodded. "Then you should be okay now." I smiled at him. "But I don't think you should got to work." He said.
"Then what should I do?" I asked. I took my contacts out because they were irritating my eyes. They only disguise I have is my hair and clothes. I then saw Soul smirk.
"I have an idea. Can I see your phone?" he asked. I gave him phone and he then started playing with it. After a few minutes he handed it back to me. "Okay you don't have work today."
"What did you do?" I asked.
"When you were asleep, I called my parents and told them what happen. So they gave you the day off. I just text Blair that info and I would be taking you home." He said. "But before that I want to take you out." He smiled.
"Like a date?" I said with a small blush.
"Yeah, like a date." He said smirking.
"Then you should ask me out properly." I said. Soul then got off the bed and stood in front of me.
"Maka Albarn would you like to go on a date with me?" he asked bowing. I laughed and got off the bed.
"Of course, I'd love to." I said laughing still. He smirked and grabbed my hand. We went to get our things then went outside. "What's the plan?" He only smiled.
"You will see."
How do you like that! Oh, I might be getting rid of the SONG OF THE SOULS because I don't have time for them anymore. I only have time to write these stories. Sorry if you had given me a song. I am really sorry...
Please tell me what you think! R&R!
