First long fanfic. hope you like.


Maka's P.O.V.

"Papa no!" I yell, curling in the corner of the room. "Worthless girl" He mumbled, walking away after kicking me in the ribs. I shake on the floor and hold my probably broken ribs. I gasp softly and sit up. I go to my room as quickly as possible and lock the door.

I sit slowly on my bed and rest back, pulling out my I pod Papa doesn't know I have one but I hide it. I put in my headphones and play songs from my one favorite band Resonance. I discovered them by accident and fell in love. The lead singer's name is Soul 'Eater'. He never told his real name to anyone but his band members. On drums is Black*Star. Lead guitar is Kid and the key board is Patty while Tsubaki has bass guitar and Liz is on back up guitar. They all sing but it's mostly Soul. He plays a few instruments too.

They play all kinds of music from fast and upbeat to slow and sad. My favorite is We're Empty from their album Broken. I have tickets for their next performance in a week and I can't wait to hear their new song.

I sit up slowly and climb out my window to the willow in my yard. I keep my I pod with me and get down. I have a friend that is a doctor/manager. He helps when papa hurts me. I slowly walk through the streets and it starts pouring rain. I tuck my I pod away as I make it to Stein's house. I knock weakly on the door, hoping he would answer.

He opens the door. "Hello Maka, what do you need?" He asked. I cough in my hand and gaze farther into the house to see a group. "Papa... kicked me." I say as I pass out into his arms. The last thing I hear is a boy's voice.

Soul's P.O.V.

We all ran to Stein's place for a quick meeting on next weeks gig. He lets us in happily and we start talking about the songs we were planning on playing.

"Stein, I think we need a new member of the band." Kid said. "I agree." I say, thinking a new member could be fun. We dwell on the idea for a bit before a soft knock comes from the door.

Stein opens it and I see a girl about me age. "Hello Maka, what do you need?" Stein asked. She coughed roughly into her hand and looked at me before whispering. "Papa... kicked me." She said and passed out into Stein's arms. "Who is she?" I ask. Stein ignores me and picked her up. He looked at us with a sad expression. "Sorry about this, I'll be right back." He says, walking to his bed room.

I gaze at Black*Star to see him very confused. "That poor girl..." I say, feeling bad for her. "Were living the dream and she is getting abused." Tsubaki whispers. Stein stepped out after a few minutes. "So, where were we?" He asked, looking at us.

"Is she okay?" Liz, Patty, Kid and I ask at once. Stein sighed and cleaned his glasses. "She is fine, just a few broken ribs. She has had way worse than this." He said. We get back into the conversation, asking occasional questions about the girl asleep in his bed.

We were about to leave when I heard a soft voice. "You guys go ahead, I gotta talk to Stein quickly...ya, talk to him." I say the last part under my breath. They all nod and leave.

(Italics= Soul, Underlined = Maka, Bold = both)

"Tried to take a picture
Of love
Didn't think I'd miss her
That much
I want to fill this new frame
But its empty"

I walk over to the door. "Go, I just had to talk to her, not you." I told Stein. He walked into the kitchen, clicking the screw in his head. She started the next verse and I sang along softly.

"Tried to write a letter
in ink
Its been getting better
I think
I got a piece of paper
But its empty
Its empty"

I stand slowly and crack the door. She started again and I stepped in to see her with headphones in her ears. I lean on the wall with out her noticing and join in.

"Maybe we're trying
Trying to hard
Maybe we're torn apart
Maybe the timing
Is beating out hearts
We're empty"

There is an instrumental so I stand and sit on the bed next to her. She looks at me shocked and speechless. I pull out a headphone and sing the next verse, knowing when it starts.

"And I've even wondered
If we
Should be getting under
These sheets
We could lie in this bed
But its empty
Its
empty"

She looked at me as I sang and didn't move

Maka's P.O.V.

I was singing in Steins room, trying to forget my pain. To my surprise, someone sat next to me. I looked over to see Soul. He pulled out my headphone and smiled at me. I was speechless and then he started SINGING! I wasn't even sure if it was real or not but I decided to sing the next verse.

"Maybe we're trying
Trying to hard
Maybe we're torn apart
Maybe the timing
Is beating our hearts
We're empty."

When I sang, he closed his eyes and swayed. We ended up singing together.

"Oh oh
oh oh
ooooh
oh oh
oh oh"

It seemed as if our voices melted together. I felt like i was in heaven, singing with the lead from my favorite band.

Soul's P.O.V.

Her voice was amazing, better than mine in my opinion. She unplugged her headphones from her I pod and smiled.

"Maybe we're trying
Trying to hard
Maybe we're torn apart
Maybe the timing
Is beating out hearts
We're empty

We're empty

We're empty"

We finish softly and I smiled. "Hey, I'm Soul." I say, looking down at her. She opened her eyes. "Hello, i'm M-Maka." She whispered softly as if trying to keep calm. I smile and stand, looking at her. "You're a good singer, come back here tomorrow at 4 pm." I say, writing my number on paper and handed it to her. "Text me sometime." I say. I strip off my jacket. She sits up and rubs her ribs as if trying to rid the pain from her body. "Hear, your walking home so you can use this to stay dry." I say, draping my jacket over her shoulders. She looked at me with shock.

Maka's P.O.V.

"Hear, your walking home so you can use this to stay dry." He said. He placed his jacket over my shoulders. I looked at him, slightly surprised. "But this is yours, i could never..." I whispered. "Its fine Maka, you can keep it." He smiled at me. I was totally shocked and couldn't find words. "R-really? Dont you need it?" I ask softly. He shook his head as if saying it was final.

I nodded, accepting it. "Why do you want me to come here tomorrow?" I asked, looking over at him. "The band is looking for a new member, I'd like to nominate you." He said, walking to the door.

"Really? You want me to join Resonance?" I choke out, thinking this is too good to be true. "Ya, well I have to go Maka, see you later." He said and walked out. I pull out my phone and add his number. I send him a quick test.

'Hey, its Maka, just so you can have my number.'

I stand slowly from the bed. Stein had wrapped my rubs so they didn't move much. I rush out of the room. "Bye Stein, thank for the help." I shout, leaving quickly. I tug Soul's jacket around me and pulled the hood up. I rush home and pull out my phone on my way.

'One new message'

I flip it open to see a message from soul and I try to stay calm.

'Thanks Maka. How are your ribs?'

I start to freak out, squealing in the middle of the street. Soul 'Eater' is testing me!

'They hurt'

I quickly climb up the tree into my room. I place my phone down and go into my mini fridge, knowing papa wouldn't let me get food. I have always stashed food for when I'm stuck in my room. My phone lights up and i grab it quickly.

Hope you feel better and you better make it tomorrow.'

I smile to myself and pull out a half sub. I eat it slowly as I reply to Soul.

"I will head over after school. Does anyone else know you want me in the band?'

I'm getting sorta nervous. What if they don't like me? What if Kid doesn't think I'm symmetrical enough? I try to push it out of my mind and finish my food, resting on my pillows.

'Ya, i told them I found someone I think is good'

I smile and type a quick message.

'K, I have to go to sleep. Good night Soul.'

I close my phone and change into pj pants, keeping Soul's jacket on. I grab my phone and flip it open.

'Night Maka, see you tomorrow'

I set my phone down and curl in my blankets, rubbing my ribs as I drift to sleep, hoping they would like me.
