Chapter Title: Your Betrayal
Author: ChibiTengu ^.^
Serena just couldn't believe what her best friends were telling her…it was just to ridiculous.
"No way! Darien wouldn't cheat on me, you guys are just imaging things." Serena said shoving a big spoonful of ice cream into her mouth. Lita let out a sigh placing her cup of coffee down on the table and clasping her hands.
"Come on, Serena think about it. Darien's been extra busy and he almost completely avoids you-"
"Hey that's not true he took me out to dinner last night and to a movie and then we-" Serena felt her hand slap over her mouth. Mina, Amy and Lita gasped.
"You didn't! God please tell me you didn't have sex with that pig." Lita said, putting her head in her hands and letting her head shake left and right.
"Hey don't call him that, he's not a pig he's a gentleman and I love him…he's my one and only you guys…you got to understand why I can't- don't believe you." Amy nodded.
"I understand where your coming from Serena, but with all my calculations he shouldn't be this busy unless he's up to something fishy." Mina nodded her head fast.
"Totally I mean come on Serena you guys do it and you don't hear from him for a week. You even stalked about his apartment building for days-"
"I do not stalk his apartment building!" Mina let out a sigh seeing that they were getting no where this way. Lita and Amy shared a look…
"Okay what would you say if we have evidence to his cheating on you, huh what would you have to say to that?" Lita asked. Serena felt her heart start to sink and she thought, "They couldn't have evidence because he would never cheat on me…" She grabbed her spoon and dipped it into her ice cream and pulled out a spoonful, then shoved it into her mouth.
"T-then I guess I would have to believe you…" She said, her mouth full with ice cream. Lita let out a sigh and rest her head in the palm of her hand.
"Okay Amy show her." Amy pulled out her little computer and began to type away. Serena sat there for what felt like forever before Amy turned the small tiny computer towards her…to show her something that broke her heart into a million pieces.
"No. It can't be." She said her eyes shining with tears, she felt them spill out when she recognized the girl that Darien was kissing.
"Is that- Raye?" She asked, the piece of her heart shattering even more… "It can't be…why would Raye do this to me?" She thought asking herself.
"Yeah it's Raye…we followed her after she was acting weird. You know when she didn't yell at you for being late for our study group... It just wasn't like her to let you off the hook that easily." Serena remembered that day, it was almost a week ago… Serena let out a gasp.
"Darien has he…has he slept-" She didn't have the strength to finish the question. She just wanted for one of the girls to answer her, even though she wish they wouldn't.
"Yeah…I think he has." Mina said lowering her eyes to the shiny table top. Elizabeth, Andrew's little sister, came over to see if they need anything else.
"Hey you guys need any refills?" She asked with a big smile. Mina shook her head, Amy was busy typing away at her computer, and Lita was to busy smiling at Elizabeth so she wouldn't know what was going on.
"Oh no thanks Lizzie we're all good, aren't we girls." Mina nodded, Amy looked up at Lizzie and mouthed "I'm fine, thanks." and went back to typing.
"What about you, Serena? Need some more ice cream." Serena sniffed her tears huge and sad.
"No thanks…I think I've lost my appetite!" She said in her high pitch whiny voice. Elizabeth took a step back looking down at the sweet blonde girl that she considered as one of her friends.
"Oh okay…hey are you alright?" She said kneeling down and touching her gently on the shoulder. Serena nodded still crying heavily.
"Oh I'm fine. I've just learned that the love of my life is cheating on me." She let out a loud cry, and then covered her face with her hands. Lizzie let out a gasp.
"What no way! Darien couldn't do that, he's to nice a guy…!" Serena nodded rubbing at her eyes and nose.
"I- I thought s-so to until they showed me ev-evdience that he is cheating on me, and with one of my best friends!" Elizabeth let out a gasp.
"Wait, what?" She looked at the girls that surrounded Serena. Lita let out a nervous laugh.
"It's Raye that's been going out with Darien behind Serena's back, not one of us. We could never do that to Serena. Her and Darien were meant to be, Raye has known that for years, but that didn't stop her from doing what she did…"
"Oh I see, well if one of my best friends went out with my boyfriend I would never in a million years forgive her." Serena let out a loud whiny sob.
"I don't plan to!" Serena said rubbing her eyes extra hard. A bell jiggled from the front of the restaurant. The girls let out a gasp, their eyes going wide.
"What is it-" Serena didn't get to finish her question, because she found out soon enough who had just walked through the door.
"Hey you guys, guess who I found outside so I decided to invite him to hang out with us." Serena turned her head, seeing Raye and Darien together. Raye had this sort of glow about her, making her almost throw up. Darien looked handsome as ever with his usual expression plastered on his face. She felt like slapping the both of them.
"Hey Serena how was school?" Darien asked walking over and kissing the top of her head, making Serena flinch.
"It- it was fine, how was your day?" She asked her eyes partly closed, her body growing numb.
"Good, thanks for asking." Raye walked up behind him and touched the lower part of his back, sending a hot spike of anger up Serena's body. "How dare she do that in front of me! Can she not wait until they are alone?" She thought asking herself. Lita had an ugly look on her face which she sent to Darien and Raye.
"So what are we having-"
"Sorry Raye we're just about to leave." Lita said getting up, pulling Serena up with her. "Come one Serena we'll go over to my place and watch movies maybe you could even sleep over."
"Hey what a great idea we'll have a slumber party and you can make us a fabulous supper Lita-"
"Sorry Raye your not invited." Lita said. Raye jumped up from where she had taken a seat.
"And why not?" She asked.
"Because I don't want some back stabbing friend in my house!" Raye let out a gasp. Darien looked at Lita in shock.
"Lita what are you talking about?" Darien asked.
"Oh don't give me that we all know that you and her are seeing each other, more then just a friendly hi here and there if you know what I mean." Darien stood up with a look of rage.
"What in the hell are you rabbling on about, Lita. Raye and I aren't an item, I'm with Serena. I would never cheat on her-"
"Just shut up…" Serena muttered. Darien let out a gasp.
"Serena you can't think that I would cheat on you-"
"I said shut up!" Serena shouted, her eyes red and puffy. "I don't want to hear any of your crap…I saw the pictures, of you kissing her. So don't try to deny that you've not cheated on me." Darien looked at her with a look of pure sadness.
"Just tell me if it's true…are you seeing Raye behind my back? Are you cheating on me with her?" She asked, her eyes wide open to see his reaction to her questions. Darien let out a sigh.
"Yes it's true…but the first time it was an accident. I was drunk and I kissed her by accident thinking she was you. Then after that I couldn't help but she how beautiful she has become and…I'm sorry you had to find out like this."
"Do you plan to stay with her?" Serena asked. Darien looked directly at her face, and then bowed his head a bit, and gave a pathetic nod.
"I don't know yet, Serena. I'm very confused…" Serena felt a pang go there her whole body, and then she began to cry.
"Oh what a gentlemanly thing to say, Darien." Lita said crossing her arms and glaring at him.
"Oh shut up, Lita. This doesn't concern you, this is between me and Serena. It's got nothing to do with you, Amy, Mina, or Raye for that matter. I need to say what needs to be said so back off would ya." Lita opened her mouth to say something else but Serena stopped her.
"Serena you can't excuse what he did-" She rose her hand, stopping her from speaking anymore. Serena cleared her throat and wiped a hand across her face.
"I'm not 'excusing' anything, Lita. I needed to hear that. I know now that he doesn't love me anymore and I have to accept that."
"Serena I didn't say I don't love you anymore-"
"But you see you wouldn't have cheated on me if you still cared about me." Darien bit the inside of his cheek. She had him there. He wouldn't have cheated on her if he still cared about her. "It's not that I don't care about her, I do. It's just I don't feel like we're the same people…we've changed so much over the past few years. I just don't see us like 'that' anymore..." He thought. Serena gave him and the others a pretend warm smile.
"You know I think I better get home." Lita touched one of Serena's shoulders gently.
"Come on Serena. Come over and I'll bake all your favorite sweets." Serena gave her a sad smile.
"Sorry Lita, but I don't think sweets will heal my broken heart." Darien took a step forward.
"Serena-" Serena took a step back.
"No don't Darien you've told me what I needed to hear, you don't love me anymore and I can't do anything to change that, no matter how much I want to." Raye felt very uncomfortable and very awkward in her own skin.
"Serena I'm sorry about this all, really I am." Raye said in a low voice. Lita let out a snort.
"Oh yeah if you were so sorry you wouldn't have let it go on, you would have stopped the first time you guys kissed." Raye knew that Lita was right, but she didn't want to stop. She loved Darien and thought of him as her one and only. That didn't mean she wasn't sorry for hurting Serena. "I really am sorry…" Raye thought. While Lita was bickering with Raye, Serena had slipped out unnoticed, and Darien decided to follow her.
"Serena wait!" He called walking out into the cold winter evening. Serena was already half way down the sidewalk when she turned around.
"What?" She asked, her eyes wet with tears. She felt her eyes grow cold rather quickly, and she wiped away the tears. Darien opened his mouth, but he couldn't find any words to say.
"I don't know what to say." Serena smiled a sad smile.
"You don't have to say anything." She said with her eyes closed, she felt her body get warm some how. "How do I feel warm in this cold weather?" She thought asking herself.
"I...just don't see us as a couple anymore. I mean I'd like to stay friends, if that's okay?" He said his voice filled with hope. Serena let out a shaky breath, and she began to cry even harder.
"I'm sorry Darien, but...I don't think I would be able to be just friends. I love you to much for that." Darien felt himself want to cry, but he held himself back from doing so. "Now's not the time to cry. You can do all the crying you want back home." He thought to himself.
"I am really completely sorry, Serena." Serena let out a shaky sad giggle.
"I know me to. I better get home it's getting late and I don't want my parents to worry, bye Darien." She said turning to make her way home. Darien just watched as she walked away out of his life. "But I don't want her to..." He thought.
Serena decided as she walked away that she would have to leave Tokyo and start a new life. She couldn't stay here and watch Raye and Darien be together when it should be him and Serena together...
"I'll have to pack and get some money." She had money in her bank account so there was no problem there. "Let's see if I remember correctly I've got about $700 dollars in my account that I can use to move somewhere, anywhere if it would get her out of Tokyo. She would leave word with Luna and she would tell the girls, that included Raye, that she was moving away and not to try and find her. Serena let out a sigh touching her belly...
"I'm so sorry Rini, it looks like our future wasn't meant to be." She muttered to the empty air. She felt the tears start to prickle her eyes once again, but she bit them back. If she was going to go off on her own she needed to toughen up and mature quite a bit if she were going to make it.
When she got home, Sammy was the one to greet her. "Hey didn't expect you home this early, what's up sis?" He asked. He was now 13 years old and as big mouthed as ever. If she told him she was going to move away (more like run away) then he would rat her out.
"Uh nothing I was just tired so I decided to call it a night, tell Mom and Dad I said night kay." She said rushing up the stairs to her room.
"Alright whatever." Sammy muttered, walking into the living to find his Mom and Dad watching the news. "Hey Serena told me to say goodnight, she's off to bed early." Ikuko stood up and walked over to the bottom of the stairs.
"Serena honey are you alright?" She called. Serena was busy inside her room packing her bags. She couldn't stay here another minute. All the memories of study dates with Darien hit her like a huge wave. "Serena?" Ikuko called her name again.
"Uh yeah Mom I'm fine...just- ow! Off to bed." Serena just stubbed her toe on her desk it hurt pretty bad at the moment. Ikuko looked over at her husband, Kenji, who just shrugged and returned to watch TV. Ikuko rolled her eyes and let out a sigh.
"Alright, night sweetie."
"Night Mom!" Serena shouted throwing a few shirts into her pink suitcase that was covered in little white bunnies. After she was done packing she waited and waited until everyone went to sleep. As she opened the door of her bedroom, Luna jumped in through the window.
"And where do you think your going?" She asked. Serena let out a gasp of surprise.
"Luna, god don't do that you scared me half to death." Luna gave her a small grin.
"I'm sorry, but you didn't answer my question. Where are you going?" She asked again. Serena let out a sigh, walking back into the room and placing her suitcase on the bed.
"I'm running away." Luna laid down to get comfortable. "It's going to be a long night..." She thought to herself.
"This wouldn't having anything to do with Darien cheating on you with Raye, would it?" She asked. Serena paused, then she nodded her head after a few seconds of silence. Luna let out a sigh.
"You shouldn't let it get to you, sooner or later he's going to find out that he made a horrible mistake and want you back, don't you remember when he broke up with you?" She asked. Serena nodded. "Oh geez thanks for reminding me. Think I'm stupid Luna..." She thought with a sigh.
"Or maybe I am."
"Or maybe your what?" Luna asked starting to lick her paws and rub them against her fur.
"I was thinking maybe I am stupid. I mean why couldn't I have seen that he was unhappy...am I that horrible as a girlfriend. A girlfriend would usually see that their guy's unhappy with their relationship, but with Darien...it just hit me like I ran into a huge brick wall or something." Luna nodded. She felt that way to some times with her relationship with Artemis.
"Serena I think you need to wait it out and see if things change, and if they don't- sorry scratch that don't run away. I'd miss you to much and so would the rest of the girls." Serena nodded. She let out a sigh.
"Yeah I guess your right, I was just being stupid and immature. If Darien wants to be with Raye instead of me then that's that. I'll just have to grow up and get used to it." Luna smiled.
"That's my girl now come on it's late and you got a math test tomorrow." Serena let out a groan.
"Oh god don't remind me." Serena pulled off her 'sneak out of the house' clothes and pulled on her nice comfortable pajamas, then crawled under the covers and felt herself slip into a deep nightmarish sleep.
