The phone kept ringing but, no one seemed to being picking up. Nothing. Just ringing. The answering machine was off but, why? Was their something wrong? Rei placed the phone down and looked at everyone.
"She's not answering the phone. I've been calling for three days but, why isn't her answering machine on? I know that she would never turn it off." Wufei placed a hand on her shoulder.
"I think it's about time that we go over and see her. Don't you?" Heero nodded.
"She hasn't answered her door either." Rei looked at him.
"You've been there and didn't even go in?"
"It was six. She might have went out for dinner." Rei grabbed the keys.
"Alright. Whom ever's going, get in the car."
Rei unlocked the door and walked into the dark house.
"Makoto?" They all spread around on the bottom half, looking around. Then, she headed upstairs. She turned toward the bedroom and found a light on.
"Makoto?" She continued in and then went in. A paper was on the bed but, she looked and saw a hand from the other side of the bed.
"MAKOTO!" She quickly ran over to her friend to find starting to fade. The braclet on her wrist was glowing a bright green. Rei was pulling to get it off but, a key staff went over her hand.
"Rei, calm down. There is nothing we can do now. She's going to be lost forever."
"No! I'm not going to let Makoto die! I can't let her die on me! Not now, not ever!" Heero bent down to her with sad eyes.
"Makoto..." Rei looked at him with tears in her eyes and then to Pluto.
"Is there anything that he can do?" Pluto looked at Heero and smiled.
"Yes." Heero looked at her.
"What do I have to do?" She smiled.
"Give her a reason to stay here other than for her own happiness." Heero picked her up into his arms.
"When will she awake?" he asked. Pluto smiled.
"Soon. Wufei, Rei, please, leave this room. I think Heero would like to be alone with her." Rei and Wufei walked outside with Pluto. Heero laid her on the bed and covered her. He picked up the paper and read it to see it say:
Well, things are going well, aren't they? They won't be for long. Don't worry, you won't feel anything during the time of your death. Your friends will find you when it's too late. Thank-you for giving me your power. You will stay here forever just, in death.
He glared at the letter and put it on the stand. Makoto opened her emerald eyes and looked in his direction.
"Heero?" He looked at her and sat next to her.
"Makoto." He gently took her hand in his.
"How did you find me?"
"You didn't answer your door or phone for three days."
"Don't say that. I'm the one that should be sorry."
"For not telling you this before." He looked into her eyes. His lips gently touched hers in a soft kiss. She looked up at him as the braclet fell off her wrist.
"I want you to stay here with me." She smiled.
"I would like that."
A dark shadow was lurking around the place. It stopped and aimed something at Alex Kino who was giving a speech. Treize was right there next to him along with the rest to whom was with him. This shadow set up a large bazuka. He aimed and then fired. Watching the plateform being completely destroyed. He put the gun away and then snuck away with it. He went down threw the sewer where others waited for him.
"Did you get them Heero?"
"There will be no further trouble with them." They walked around until they finally climbed up again. It was at the beach where they were. They went over to the car and placed the gun away, hidden under a blanket. Quickly, they pulled off the black clothes to be in normal beach clothes. They put them in the back as well. Rei ran up to them in her red bikini. A wrap around was on her waist. It looked hawiian. She looked at the three.
"Are you coming for not? Geez. How long does a girl have to wait for three people just to bring the food out of the back of the car?"
"We'll be there in a minute. Just go sit down," said Duo grabbing out something things.
"Okay." She then ran back over to Quatre, and Trowa.
"That was close," sighed Duo. Wufei grabbed the chest.
"Their won't be any further trouble, will their?" Heero looked over at the side to see Makoto sitting there. She turned to look at him. He nodded.
"No more trouble."
"Good." He looked to see Duo and Wufei heading down to the others. He went over to her and kissed her forhead. She smiled.
"Ready to have some fun?" he asked.
"Depends on what you call fun." She turned to him and laughed at his surprised look. He grabbed her up into his arms.
"That's for later tonight," he whispered in her ear. Rei ran over again.
"Are you two coming?" Makoto got up and went over to Rei.
"Tag! You're it!" She then quickly ran away where Heero followed her.
"Hey! That's not fair! I didn't know we were playing!" She ran over to Wufei can pushed him a little.
"You're it!" Heero grabbed Makoto to where they both fell in the ocean water. She sat up and laughed while he looked at her smiling face.
"Now that you caught me, what do you aim to do?"
"This." He gently kissed her while her arms went around his neck.
