A/N: Wow it's been a while since I last updated. I'm really sorry, I had a lot of things to do with school. Haha. Well here's chapter seventeen of Only You. I'll make this A/N short so that you can start reading. Lol. I hope you enjoy reading it! Please excuse any grammatical errors and if my writing style seems to be off a bit, I haven't written fanfics in a little while, so I might be rusty. Lol. Anyway, make sure to review in the end! Thanks!
Summary of last chapter: It was a shock to Tomoyo, Eriol, Syaoran, and Meiling that Hiro and Sakura are going out with each other. But another shock was that Syaoran and Meiling were going out with each other! In the last chapter, we left off with Tomoyo and Eriol giving each other worried glances. What will happen next?
Sakura noticed that Tomoyo and Eriol looked bothered by something and was about to ask them, but the bell rang, signaling that lunch was over. So the six of them get up and begin cleaning up their trash.
The six of them leave the building and Syaoran and Meiling go one way while Eriol, Tomoyo, Sakura and Hiro go another way. As they walk to their class, Eriol says bye because he has a different class than they do. Sakura, Hiro, and Tomoyo walk to their class in silence. After a while, Sakura says with a little laugh, "Why isn't it surprising that Syaoran is going out with Meiling?"
"Uh…Yeah…" Tomoyo said trying to sound happy. "It was pretty surprising…"
Hiro, who had been walking behind the pair, began to push them to walk faster. "I say we drop the subject and hurry to class. I mean, we only have two more minutes before we're tardy."
"Oh, you're right." Tomoyo said looking at her watch.
"Let's go then." Sakura said, forgetting for a while about Syaoran.
Syaoran and Meiling made it to class and sat down just before the bell rang. As their teacher began to lecture, (A/N: they're in history. ) Syaoran passed a little sticky note to Meiling, who was sitting right next to him. Meiling looked at the note, and then at Syaoran. Meiling looked at the sticky note and read what was written on it.
'We need to talk after school.'
Meiling quickly stuffed the sticky note into her backpack and began listening to the teacher's lecture.
Syaoran and Meiling were the only ones in the courtyard because the teacher had finished his lecture early and so let them out early.
"You know, I'm was kinda surprised when you said that you and I were going out with each other. I didn't' think you'd say something like that…especially in front of your friends." Meiling said as she sat on a bench and looked at Syaoran.
Syaoran was quiet.
Meiling sighed. "So what is it that you wanted to talk about?"
"Well you see…I want you…" Syaoran began.
"To pretend to go out with you, right?" Meiling finished.
"I know it sounds pathetic, but will you?" Syaoran asked.
"Sure." Meiling said happily as she jumped off of the bench.
"Well I need to get going, my mom said she was picking me up today." Syaoran said as he began to leave. He turned around and said to Meiling, "Thanks."
"No problem. I'll help you out in any way I can..." Meiling smiled as she watched Syaoran leave.
'And I'll try my best to change his mind, so that he'll like me and not Sakura…' She thought to herself as she heard the school bell ring.
"Hmm, I wonder where Hiro is?" Sakura said to herself while she looked around trying to spot him among the students waiting at the bus stop.
"Shouldn't he be with you?" Asked a voice from behind.
Sakura turned around to see that it was Tomoyo and shook her head. "We don't have 6th period with each other."
Tomoyo nodded her head.
"Where's Eriol?" Sakura asked.
"He went to the office to turn something in." Tomoyo smiled. Then she said, "Oh! Isn't that Hiro over there?"
Sakura looked and saw him walking away from the bus stop.
"HIRO!" Sakura and Tomoyo shouted, not caring if there were other students around, because most of the students were shouting or talking loudly as well.
Hiro turned around, not knowing who called him, or if he was even called. Then he saw Tomoyo waving her hand for him to come over. He walked over to them.
"Where were you going?" Sakura asked.
Hiro shook his head. "I'm getting picked up today."
He looked around and saw a black car parked a couple of feet away from the bus stop. Then he asked, "Do you two want to come with me? I can drop you two off at your houses."
"That's alright, I'm going to wait for Eriol." Tomoyo said with a smile. "But take Sakura with you."
Sakura looked at Tomoyo. "Tomoyo!"
"Aw, come on Sakura, you look tired, and the bus might not get here for a while." Tomoyo said. Then she leaned closer to Sakura and whispered, "And besides, he is your boyfriend right?"
Sakura's face went a little pink.
"Well that's settled then. You go off with Hiro." Tomoyo said happily and pushed Sakura towards Hiro, who had been standing there and watching the two girls talk to each other.
"But…okay." Sakura said feeling defeated. She knew that once Tomoyo got an idea in her head, she wouldn't let go of it.
Hiro and Sakura waved good-bye to Tomoyo. When they were a couple of feet away, Tomoyo ran up to Hiro and quietly tapped his shoulder. Sakura didn't notice and so she kept on walking while Hiro stopped.
"You're probably the only one who can do this right now. So…please cheer Sakura up for me?" Tomoyo said, and opened her mouth to say more but Hiro stopped her.
"You're a really good friend Tomoyo. Don't worry, I'll try my best to cheer her up." He said with a smile and ran off to Sakura who had stopped walking when she noticed Hiro wasn't behind her.
Tomoyo walked back to the bus stop and saw Eriol standing there.
"Hey where were you just now?" Eriol said with a smile.
"Just taking a little walk." Tomoyo replied.
"Where did Sakura go?"
"Hiro took her home."
Eriol nodded. "I see."
They waited for about ten more minutes before the bus came and they were able to go home.
Hiro stepped out of the car and quickly made his way to Sakura's side and opened her door.
"Thank you." Sakura said.
Hiro closed the door once Sakura got out. Then he told her that he would walk to her door.
"Hey, is something wrong?" Hiro asked while Sakura looked for her house key.
"Of course not. What would make you say that?" Sakura said as she stuck her key into the knob and unlocked the door.
"I know that something is bothering you. You can tell me, I am your boyfriend after all."
Hiro saw that she flinched a little bit from hearing the word 'boyfriend'. Hiro let out a little sigh and grabbed Sakura's shoulders and turned her around so she was facing him.
"If you want, you don't have to call me your boyfriend, it's alright with me. But there is one thing that I want you to do, and that is tell me anything that is bothering you. You don't have to say anything right now, but eventually, alright?" Hiro said.
"Alright." Sakura said looking at the floor.
Hiro lifted her head so that she was looking at her. "Come on Sakura. When you're sad or quiet like this it makes me sad. Where's that smile?"
Sakura stared at Hiro for a little while and then let out a little laugh.
"Hey what's so funny?" Hiro asked.
"The way you stared at me with such a serious face…I don't know, I just had to laugh. I'm sorry." Sakura said quickly at the end.
Hiro smiled. "You laughed, therefore, you smiled. So that makes me happy."
Sakura smiled. "Thank you. I think you've just made me feel better."
"So something was bothering you. Again, you can tell me when you're ready. But don't make me wait too long. When you're upset, well, I know a couple other people who will be upset as well." Hiro said.
"Alright then, I should get going before my mom gets mad." Hiro said as began to walk towards the car. Turning around, he waved a said, "Bye."
"Bye." Sakura waved.
Hiro got into the car and waved once more and waved for her to go inside the house. Once Sakura went inside, Hiro told his driver to head for home.
A/N: okay, well that's where I'm stopping. It's not a cliffhanger, but I think this should be good for now. I hope you enjoyed reading this chapter. It was kinda long…but hey, you had to wait for a long time. (But sorry if you think it's not long enough…eheheh) But again, I hoped you enjoyed it! Please tell me what you think! I had to edit some parts in this chapter…but I'm sure I might have missed a couple of grammatical parts. Lol. I know some parts were probably really corny…but oh well. Wow…I like Hiro in this chapter…lol. Alright! Please leave a review and I'll see you in chapter 18 of Only You! Bye!
