I know my current followers are eagerly awaiting the next chapter of this story, but I find it embarrassing that these mediocre first chapters are still up. I realise my writing ability was crappy in the beginning, so I've decided to edit the first few chapters. I feel that these chapters have put off new readers. I will not be continueing the story until I've updated the chapters I find not satisfactory. I am sorry to my current followers if you are waiting for the next chapter.
Please read all the author's notes as they will have information on the story.
Also today is my Fanfiction Anniversary!
It was an average night. Of course, Amu wouldn't have called it average, as it was the forst holiday she had in a while. She had used the day to its full extent, so she was exhausted. Amu yawned deeply. She looked at the illuminated bedside alarm clock. It read 10:04p.m.
Her charas were already snoozing in their respective eggs, and little snores could be heard.
She changed into her favourite orange plaid pyjamas, slipped into her bed and wrapped herself in a cocoon of blankets. After a few minutes, she was sleeping soundly.
Unbeknownst to her, a certain catboy jumped onto her balcony with his cat-like abilities. The boy peeked through the gap in the curtains, and saw Amu was asleep. Satisfied the coast was clear, he tugged open the balcony door, not even bothering to check if it was locked or not, as he knew it wouldn't be. She probably should though, he thought, someone could just waltz in and steal anything.
Walking to the bedside, he peered down at the sleeping girl. He decided Amu is very cute when she's asleep. Like an angel, with her pink hair surrounding her face like a halo. But the time for observing would have to be postponed, as he had to talk to her urgently.
"Amu." he whispered, "You awake?"
She continued to sleep. The boy rolled his eyes. Of course, she's a heavy sleeper.
"Amu?" He said a little louder.
Again she snored. The boy, starting to get irritated, resorted to his secret weapon.
*POKE*. He poked her cheek.
"Amu?" he said normal voice volume. She stirred. She opened her golded eyes groggily, trying to focus on the face in front of her in the darkness. Slowly, but surely, the boy's face came into focus.
"Ikuto?" She asked, confused. Then her eyes shot wide open. "IKUTO? What the hell are you doing in my room?!" She yelled.
"Keep it down, will you? You'll wake your parents and I don't want to deal with your over-reacting dad, OK?" Ikuto said, clasping his hand over Amu's mouth, effectively shutting her up. Ohh… jeez for a second there, I thought he was kidnapping me or something. she thought.
"Now, will you not shout?" He asked. She nodded and he took his hand off her mouth.
"What do you want?" she asked, a bit miffed. "What could possibly be so important that you had to sneak into my room?"
He took an envelope out of his pocket. He opened the envelope to reveal two large tickets.
"My sister and Kukai thought it would be funny to enter me in a raffle contest."
"And?" Amu asked, not getting his point.
"And I won." He showed her the tickets. Sure enough, flight details were printed on it.
"And you are telling me this because?" she said, crossing her arms, "Are you bragging?"
He chuckled. "No I want you to come with me." she blushed a pretty red. He wants me... to go?
"WHAT? Oh no, I couldn't. You should take your sister with you. After all, she entered you into the contest." she said quickly, waing her arms in an effort to ward off Ikuto's offer.
He pulled a pained face."And risk getting glomped at every chance possible for two months? No way."
Amu giggled, remembering Utau's brother complex. "But isn't she dating Kukai?"
Ikuto quirked an eyebrow. "Do you think she cares?"
Of course not... Amu thought. He saw her answer in her face.
Amu turned away slightly. Of course she wanted to go, but she wouldn't let Ikuto know that. Turning up her 'cool-and-spicy' persona slightly to hide the eagerness, she answered. "Fine, I go. But it depends on if my parents will let me and where we are going."
"It says Tokyo." he stated monotonely. "That's the location."
"No… We are going to the Arctic and it says Tokyo for no reason." Amu said sarcastically, giving him a 'are-you-a-dumbass?' look.
"Why are you being mean?" he pouted. Amu looked at him. Was he seriously trying to pull what she thought he was trying to pull? She smirked.
"I'm not being mean, you just being stupid, baka neko." She said matter-of-factly.
"Since when was I baka neko?' he said teasingly, moving closer ever so slightly. She blushed lightly. Why the hell am I blushing? she thought frantically, He freaking moved ONE centimetre!
"Don't make any mistakes; I still call you pervert-cat!" She yelled, hitting him on the head, ducking her own to hide the blush. "For the record, you are a baka, so it's not a nickname or anything."
"Ow, that hurt." Ikuto said, exaggeratingly rubbing the spot she hit.
"You deserved it!" She yelled, crossing her arms again, and turned so he could have a lovely view of the back of her head. " You got what you want, so please leave."
"Fine then. See you, perverted kid." He walked over to the balcony, chara changed and lept off the railing. He sprinted over the rooftops with a sound.
Amu ran to the balcony. "I am not a perverted kid! If anyone is a pervert, you are!" she heard his distant laughing. "Damn cat."
She walked back to her bed and hopped in again. Just as she was on the brink of sleep, her mind suddenly realised something.
How the hell was she going to convince her parents to let her go to Tokyo with a teenage boy, alone?
Okie dokie then. The chapter probably still sucks compared to what I could've done if I had the time, but here it is. I spent extra time on the beginning before I realised that I had no time to do the exact same thing to the rest of the page, so that's why later in the chapter, there are fewer edits. It better than before, that's all that matters. And for those who read this chapter before I edited, you may have realised that I haved dropped the 'POV' changes. I find they are very messy to have in a story, especially if it changes a lot.
Anyway, I will probably edit this later after the story's finished, but it will be minor. Also, the lack of Kishigo is apparently irritating some of my followers, so one of the following chapters will have a completely new scene in it.
