Kisara walked up the street in her pink and blue school uniform, her hair tied up in a high ponytail with a light blue string of ribbon over a black hair elastic. Seto's car came up by her, pulling over only so she could climb in, then set off again.
Once in her seat with her seatbelt on, Kisara looked over to the brunette, noticing that something seemed a bit off about him. His cheeks were flushed lightly with a fever.
"Seto," Kisara said. "You have a fever."
"It's only a small one. I'll live." He said as he looked at her for a moment, his blue eyes seeming to hold a small drowsy look to them.
"If it gets worse you won't be able to go to school tomorrow." Kisara said simply as she folded her hands on her lap.
"I'm going tomorrow whether it's worse or not." He replied just as simply.
"No you won't." She insisted
"I'll do what I want. I don't need your approval, or disapproval for it." He said in a matter-of-fact tone.
Kisara sighed and watched out the window at all the scenery passing by. Seto could just be so stubborn from saying almost nothing at all.
By the time third period science came around, Seto could hardly keep his eyes open. His cheeks were flushed red with fever and his head was laying on Kisara's shoulder.
"Seto, your fever has only gotten worse." Kisara said as he fully gave up trying to keep his eyes open.
"I'm fine." He insisted.
"You need to rest." She insisted back.
"No I don't." He said quietly as the class began.
'Maybe he doesn't.'
'Since when are you the expert on these kind of things?'
'Since when are you?'
Kisara kept quiet after that and tried to focus on the lesson being taught, but found that she had already covered the concept at one of her other schools. With a small sigh, she brought a hand up to Seto's forehead, pulling it back after a few seconds. It was burning hot.
'Remember what he said.'
'Yeah, yeah. I know.'
Soon enough the class was half over. Seto's head had moved from Kisara's shoulder to the desk and when Kisara felt Seto's forehead again, her hand pulled away almost immediately. With a sigh she pulled out a notebook and quickly wrote down a note. Then stood, walked to the front of the room. Dropped the note on the teacher's desk and walked back to her desk.
She picked up Seto's folder, then hers and then took Seto's hand. Dazed and weary, he stood, following her to the classroom door.
"Get well soon." The teacher said before she and Seto walked out the door.
"Kisara? What are you doing?" Seto asked as she led him down the hall.
"Nothing." She lied. "Where're your keys?"
"In my pocket. Why?"
"Great. Hand them to me." She said as they passed the office. She stopped only for a brief second to make sure the secretary saw them, then she dropped a note in front of the office door.
"Why?" He asked again as he pulled his keys from his pocket.
"Just trust me." She said as she reached for the keys. He held them out of her reach and shook his head.
"Why?" He repeated.
"Because. I need to take you somewhere." Kisara said truthfully. He looked at her for a moment before dropping the keys into her hand.
"School's not over yet."He said after a few minutes of walking in silence.
"Nope it's not." Kisara answered as the two neared the car
"Then why are we leaving?"
"We…We got excused from class for the rest of the day." She lied. Again.
"When did that happen?" He asked as she fumbled around with trying to unlock the car door while still holding the school binders.
"While you were asleep." She said when she finally opened the passenger side door. Then she walked around to the drivers side.
"I fell asleep in school?" He inquired as he sat in the seat.
"Yup." Kisara said as she got the door open. She placed the two binders in the back seat of the car before climbing in herself.
"Do you even know how to drive?" Seto asked as he leaned over and turned the key in the ignition after Kisara's attempts. The car started smoothly.
"Yes." She replied. "It's just….It's been a while." Seto pulled his seatbelt on then nodded at her.
"Seatbelt." He commanded. After another few attempts at the simple task, Seto had to help her again. "Are you sure you know what you're doing?" He asked as Kisara put the car in reverse, looking behind her as she pulled the car from where it was parked.
"Positive." She replied. Within a few minutes they were driving down the road. Kisara racked her brain, trying to remember the way to Seto's house from the road they were driving on. If she was thinking correctly, it would be two lefts, straight down three streets, a right, a left and then one more right. But that would only be if she ever got past the streetlight that refused to go green.
"Weren't we just in science?" Seto asked as Kisara impatiently tapped her fingers on the steering wheel. She nodded her head, and pressed her foot on the gas as the light went green.
"Yes. We were." Kisara said as she made the left turn. "Congratulations on your perceptiveness."
"So where are you taking me?" Seto asked after she had made a few more turns.
"You'll see." Kisara replied
A while later, Seto was half asleep and Kisara was pulling up into what she thought was the driveway. She killed the engine grabbed the keys, and then climbed out of the car. The she quickly ran around to the other side of the car and helped Seto, who still didn't know where he was.
She was relieved to find out that the door to the house was unlocked and she didn't have to unlock the door. She half-helped Seto stand, half-dragged him along, running into Mokuba along the way.
"Kisara?" Mokuba questioned, almost dropping the apple he was about to take a bite of.
"Hey, Mokuba. Can you tell me where your brother's room is?"
"Yeah, up the stairs, down the right hall, seventh door." He said as Kisara smiled at him and proceeded on her way.
"He's sick, didn't believe it, it's gotten worse, he needs rest." Kisara said before Mokuba could even ask a question. "And yes," she said as he began to speak. "I need a hand."
It took almost half an hour, but the two eventually got the older Kaiba up into his bedroom. But that was about it. By the time they had gotten him up there, Mokuba had to leave. Which left Kisara on her own. Again. Within ten minutes, she got him laying on the bed. Then he decided to fully wake up.
"Kisara?" He asked wearily as she had just finished taking his shoes off him and placing them by the door. She raised her head.
"Hmm?" Was her only reply as she fiddled with her loosening pony-tail.
"Why, and how am I here?" He asked as he sat up.
"You're fever was getting worse and worse so I brought you here. You were actually very cooperative." She answered as she dropped his car keys onto the night table by his bed.
"You weren't supposed to do that."
"I know I wasn't." She said. "But I did anyway. You need rest."
"No I don't. I'm going back to school." He said as he tried to stand, sitting down immediately.
"Yes you do." Kisara insisted as she sat down next to him.
"I have to go back to school." He said as he tried again to stand, only to fall back down onto the bed.
"I wrote a note explaining what was going on. You don't have to be present for any more classes today." Kisara said.
"Well what about my binder?"
"It's in your car. I'll lend you my old notes and it'll be like you hadn't missed the school day at all." Kisara said. "Now please just rest." Reluctantly, he agreed.
"Thank you." Kisara said as she stood. "Don't forget, you have to sleep." He nodded his head in understanding and she began to walk away. Only to have her wrist be grabbed and pulled back, making her fall backwards and land sitting on Seto's lap. His arms immediately wrapped around her waist, making it so she couldn't stand.
"Please don't go." He said quietly as he laid his fever-bitten forehead against the back of her neck. All protests that she had almost said disappeared in an instant.
"What?" She asked incredulously.
"I don't want you to leave." He said, rewording what he had said before. "I know that I'm most likely going to just sleep the entire time, but I'll sleep better knowing that you're here."
"But-" She began but was cut off.
"Please?" He asked, a bit quietly. Kisara sighed in defeat and nodded her head.
"Fine." She said. "I'll stay. But if I do then you have to promise you'll sleep."
He nodded his head. "I promise." He said as he released his hold on her. She stood and walked over to the door.
"I'll be right back." She said. "You can change your clothes if you'd like." He nodded his head and she walked out of the bedroom, down the stairs, and into the kitchen. She opened each cupboard, searching for a glass. She eventually found one and filled it with water, then went back up the stairs, and into his bedroom.
He had changed into a plain white t-shirt and black sweats, and was sitting down exactly where he had been when she had left.
"You came back." He said observantly.
"I said that I would." She replied as she walked to the bed and placed the glass of water by the untouched keys on the nightstand. "I'm always true to my word." She said as she sat next to him. "Now sleep. " She commanded him.
He laid down, his head on the pillow by her and eventually fell asleep.
Hours passed and Kisara now sat with her back against the wall in the spot where the pillow's were before. Now the pillows were on the floor. Seto's head lay on her lap, his face turned towards her stomach. Her shoes and socks had been discarded by the door, leaving her to see the light blue nail polish on her toes. Her hand absent-mindedly ran through his hair as she thought.
"Seto? Are you awake?" She asked quietly. The only reply she got was him stirring slightly. Which probably meant that he was still sleeping.
"I'll take that as a no." She said out loud, her eyes kindly watching him. "Well then I'm going to speak." She said and leaned her head back against the wall. "Yugi, and Joey, and Marik, and everyone says that you don't believe what happened in Egypt. But I don't think that's true.
"I think you just don't want to believe what happened. But I don't blame you. I didn't believe it until only a few months ago. Not even then actually. I didn't believe it until I saw you." She gave a small chuckle at herself. "Imagine that. Not believing in something until you see a person. But that's how it was.
"I partially blame Pegasus though. He told me about Egypt and thought I'd believe it lickety split. But I told him that I wouldn't believe it until I saw you. No matter how much he, or the dragon pressed the issue. You've probably been told many times that I'm the Blue Eyes White Dragon. I'm only her host though.
"The actual dragon is a lot more prideful. And she thinks she always knows what's best. So I guess you could say that in a way, she's a bit like you. But I don't think you want to hear about her." She paused for a moment, wondering why she was talking so much nonsense like this. But she still didn't stop.
"I think they've all been telling you different stories, that end the same way. But they might just all be wrong. From what I know in short, you saved my life twice, then I returned the favor. From what you told me, you hated that you were always put in charge of everything then the Pharaoh would get the credit for all your work. It was your main pet peeve really.
"And here I am rambling on about things you don't even care for. But I guess I just want to say them out loud." She stopped talking for a few minutes, trying to think of another thing to pointlessly tell about. "In Egypt, you were the kindest person to me. Everyone else decided I was a monster and pelted me with stones.
"But you're the one that stopped them." She paused, remembering the moment. "At first it was only because of my dragon. But then it was for other reasons. You wouldn't let your father kill me." She paused again, laughing slightly at herself. "I bet you're wondering why I'm telling you all this. 'Bull-crap', as you would call it. Honestly, I don't even know why myself.
"But I just am." She stopped again thinking for a few moments before chuckling at herself. "You know, in Egypt you told me that you loved me. And I said that I loved you back. Then I went and got myself killed for you. And then you never married. So for whatever it's worth," she stopped with a small sigh.
"For whatever it's worth, I still love you." She said quietly.
In a matter of only a few seconds, she found that lips were pressed against hers while hands were holding onto either side of her face. It took her another few seconds to realize what was happening before she realized that her lips were pressing back against Seto's.
A blush lit up her face when she realized who it was kissing her, making her pale white cheeks turn into a bright shade of pink. Within only a few seconds his lips pulled away from hers and he stared at her with an almost haunted look in his eyes.
"Sorry," he mumbled utterly quietly as he moved over to the edge of the bed. Kisara sat motionless where she was, her blush not fading in the least bit. In fact, it only seemed to grow deeper. After a few minutes of shock, she began to move again, looking at him incredulously .
"Why did you do that?"
"I wasn't thinking straight." He mumbled.
"No, you've been thinking just fine. Really, why did you do that?"
He stayed quiet.
"Alright, alright. I can take a hint. I won't press the issue any more for the time being."
"For the time being?"
"Yep. Which means that you're going to have to give me an answer sooner or later." Kisara said with a mischievous grin.
"I choose later." Seto said as a doctor walked into the room. The doctor looked at Seto, then at Kisara, then at Seto, then at the bed.
"We weren't doing anything." Kisara said before any words came out of the doctor's opened mouth. He closed his mouth but opened it again. "I was just leaving. Don't worry." Kisara said as the doctor frowned at her. Apparently her knowing what someone was going to say before they said it, was not a very good thing with this doctor.
Kisara stood and walked to the door, stopping only to pick up her socks and shoes on her way out.
"You're leaving?" Mokuba asked when he saw her on the stairs a few minutes later, her shoes on her feet.
"Doctor's orders." Kisara said with a small shrug.
"The doctor didn't talk though."
"I have a talent. I can guess what a person's saying before they say it."
"That'd be a handy thing to learn." Mokuba said thoughtfully.
"It is." Kisara said with a smile. "Stay out of your brother's room though. I don't want you getting sick like he is." She then added.
"Alright." Mokuba smiled. "Do you need a car to take you home?" He then asked as she began walking out the door.
"Umm…No. That's alright. Thanks for the offer though." She answered after a moment of thinking.
"Yeah. I'm fine with walking." Kisara said and slipped out the door.
'You've been quiet.'
'Well I was sleeping. That is, until you started talking about Egypt.'
'I already know what you want to say. But I know what I'm doing. I can handle this.'
'I hope so. For your sake.'
Alright, so I'm sorry for the super late update. And I apologize for the fact that's it's really short. But I've been having troubles with my computer. And, as it turns out, I'm now writing three fanfics. So, the updates may be even slower. But on the bright side, I may have more time to write due to summer break coming up in a few weeks! But thanks for reading this if you still do. I apologize again. And I'll try to get the next update up soon!
