Please forgive me :(

You see, our computer crashed for some demented reason and my mom didn't want me to use her laptop, so I wasn't able to update!

(But my parents bought me a new laptop, since we don't really need a huge computer)

And last time I updated was in November! O_O

Two months. . .holy crap.

Gahhh, I'm sorry. Here's the last chapter.

I wanted to make the story longer, but after rereading the story I noticed it went rather quick, Rima's OOC, and a lot of mistakes.

It's just horrible :(

So I'm ending it with this chapter.

I'd like to dedicate this chapter too anime3026 for spamming my review thingy x)

I would of too, so I don't blame you!

And again I'm soooooo sorry *cries*

~Rima's Point of View~

"Rima! Wake up time for school!" I heard Kusukusu yell.

"I don't feel like it." I moaned and pulled my covers over my head.

"Come on Rima, I have a feeling today is going to be a great day!"


"Rima, get up now!" Mama yelled from downstairs. I groaned. She probably had an early meeting and wanted to take me to school early. I got out of bed slowly, but from the corner of my eye I noticed a miniature figure. I blush slightly as I picked it up.

"Bala-balance." I said to myself and smiled.

~Nagihiko's Point of View~

I yawned loudly and scratched my head while looking around the room sleepily. I yawned again, but jumped in mid-yawn when my bedroom door slid opened.

"Nagihiko, what are you still doing in bed?" My mother glared at me.

"Uhhhh." I looked at her nervously.

"Baaya! Start the bath, he's awake now!" She yelled then tossed me a towel, "you just doubled your practice time."

I groaned. 'She's going to kill me.'

"Hm, it's about time. Your mother has been going easy on you these past few days." Temari glided besides me.

"You and your dancing," Rhythm spat at her, "Nagi was supposed to go play basketball today with the team today."

"Nagihiko is better off dancing, not running around getting sweaty."

"You guys," I muttered, "stay in here while I'm in the bathroom." I closed the door on their bickering.

"The bath is ready, young master." Baaya bowed.

"Thank you, Baaya." I smiled at her as I passed by. I slid the door shut and began to undress. I wrapped the towel my mother gave me around my waist and walked toward the bathtub. Steam was slightly visible above the water, I dipped my hand into it, checking the temperature.

"Wow, the water is perfect!" I heard Rhythm yell happily and a soft splash. My eyes widened.

"R-rhythm?!" I yelled. "I told you not to come in here."

"Aw, don't worry about that Nagi, we're all guys." He grinned.

"He's right, there's nothing to be ashamed of," a soft giggle echoed in tthe room.

"Temari?!" We both yelled this time. I clutched the knot that kept the towel around my waist tightly.

"What the hell are you doing in here?!" Rhythm yelled and looked around the water frantically.

I felt my cheeks burn up, 'Has she been here the whole time?'

"What's wrong with me being in here?" Her head poked out of the water.

"You're a girl!" We both yelled.

~Rima's Point of View~

I sat in the back of our family car, staring out at the window. Mama did have an early meeting, so she was really nervous. It didn't help much when I noticed Papa wasn't there, which meant they had another fight.

I looked up into the rear view mirror and into her almond eyes.

I miss when her and Papa used to laugh, I frowned at the thought.

"Rima, what's wrong?" Kusukusu asked me, but I remained silent.

We pulled at the front of the castle like school, I reached for the car handle, but my mother's voice stopped me.


"Yes, Mama?"

"Have a nice day." She looked up into the mirror, her eyes hinting a smile.

My eyes widened slightly, but I smiled back, "You too, Mama."

I opened the door, and slid out of the car, then closed it when I saw Kusukusu hovering above the car.

Mama drove away slowly.

~Kirishima's Point of View~

I sighed deeply, trying to calm my nerves down.

"It's okay," I whispered to myself, and closed my eyes. But an image of Rima with Nagihiko flashed through my eyes.

I gasped sharply and tensed up.

"She's going to say no, I know she is. Just like last time." I looked down at my shoes sadly.

"Who is?" A deep voice behind me asked. I turned around and found myself staring at my older brother.

"Onii-san, shouldn't you be at school?" I asked.

"Nope, no school for me today, now spit it." His eyes narrowed under his bangs.

"N-nothing." I blushed.

"Who's this girl you're talking about?" He smirked this time.

"No one."

"Come on, tell me."

"Her name's Rima."

"Rima? That's a pretty name."

"She's even prettier in person, no, she's gorgeous, and sweet, ki⎯"

"Okay, I get it, but what's wrong?"

"I don't think I have a chance, I asked her to go out with me last year, but she rejected me, also there's this guy. And, and, they just seem too, I dunno."

"Are they going out?"


"Does she like him?"

"I, I don't know."

"Does he like her?"

"I think, why wouldn't he?"

"Stop being so pessimistic, if they've known each other for a long time, they should of been together by now, you still have a chance." He ruffled my hair and walked away.

I scowled and patted my hair down, "He wasn't any help," I said I as I walked out our front door.

~Nagihiko's Point of View~

I walked down the sidewalk, still blushing, I find it astounishing that my chara's have already forgotten about our little shower incident.

"Hey Nagi, isn't that the guy?" Rhythm asked besides me.

"Which one?" Temari floated from my hair.

"The redhead!" Rhythm pointed.

"Rhythm, pointing is impolite." I told him, but mentally facepalmed myself when I remembered no one could see them.

"So, that's the opponent." Temari murmured to herself and began to observe Kirishima-kun.

"You two." I shook my head slowly.

"Hmph, Nagihiko, you've got to start thinking of him as your rival, he probably has already." She sat on my shoulder.

"I've already done that with Rima, look where that's gotten me." I sighed.

"It's your fault for being such a chicken." Rhythm scoffed once again. Temari and I only glared at him.

"He seems kind of, sad." She said slowly, I began to turn my head to her direction, but she hissed, "No, don't look, he's looking this way."

"Fujisaki-kun!" I heard him call.

"Idiot, I told you not to look!"

"Hey, Kirishima-kun." I waved at him, ignoring Temari's comments.

"Good morning," He ran up to me, I nodded at him. We began to walk together, but none of us spoke.

"I can smell his fear." Temari whispered.

"Jeez, why don't you shut up?!" Rhythm yelled.

"Don't talk to me like that!"

"So, Kirishima-kun," I tried to drown their voices, "how are you?"

"I'm fine, a bit nervous," He rubbed his arm.

"Ah, because of Rima-chan?"

He nodded, "I'm afraid Mashiro-san may turn down my confession, again."

"I told you he was afraid." Rhythm muttered.

"I said that." Temari hissed.

I laughed nervously.

"Can I ask you a question?" Kirishima-kun looked up, I slightly flinched back without thinking.

"Uh, yeah?" I said unsurely.

"Is it okay with you if I go out with Mashiro-san?"

"You don't have to ask me for persmission, Kirishima-kun," I looked away from him, but added, "and don't be so positive she's going accept your confession."

"Ooo," Rhythm said eagerly.

"Shh," Temari hushed him, absorbed in the conversation as well.

"So it isn't, I had a feeling." He said slowly, I turned back to him curious.

"What do you mean?"

"You like Mashiro-san, don't you?"

My eye's widened, 'He tricked me.'

He stopped walking, I stopped and turned towards him. Kirshima-kun stared at me, his eyes full of determination, "I'm not going to lose to you."

Shock faded away from me after his declaration, instead I felt anger rush through my body. I narrowed my eyes at him, "Rima-chan isn't some sort of prize. You don't even know her. You may think you love her, but there's much more to Rima than her beauty and kindness."

His mouth opened as if though he wanted to say something, but then he looked beyond me and gasped.

"Oh crap, A-Amu! H-hi!" Rhythm yelled nervously; Temari flew into my hair when he said her name.

"N-Nagihiko?" Amu's voice asked behind me. I felt my cheeks warm up and braced myself as I faced her, but instantly went red when I saw a crimson colored Rima beside her.

"D-did you hear?" I asked and her golden hair bounced around her as she nodded her head quickly.

Amu and the other charas where also blushing, but suddenly Suu exclaimed, "I knew it-desu!"

"M-Mashiro-san, I⎯" Kirishima said behind me, but Rima cut him off.

"Kirishima-kun, do you still. . .like me?"

"I do, very much."

Rima stared at him, confusion sprawled across her face.

"I, I don't know what to do." She whispered, "I'm s-sorry." And suddenly she ran off.

"Rima!" Everyone yelled after her, but I was the only one to move.

"Rima-chan!" I called, as she turned at a corner. It didn't take me long to reach it, but when I curved at the turn, I almost ran into her ball-like form. I made myself stop and I staggered over her as I tried to regain my balance.

I knelt beside her, and was able to hear her soft sobbing through her panting.

"Please, don't cry, Rima-chan." I whispered. She looked up slowly and we gazed into each other's eyes, I found myself getting lost in her golden orbs. The wind gently blew around us, making our hair dance together.

"I'm such a coward," Rima began, "for running off like that."

"No you weren't, it's okay to be afraid."

"But, I looked like an idiot."

"We're all idiots." I smiled, and she slightly giggled, but I saw her frown through her eyes.


"Why, what?"

"Why do you like me?"

"At first you where cruel, you can still be, but somehow you stole my heart. I thought somebody else took it, but I was wrong.

"I found myself looking forward to you in the meetings, and watching you incase you needed my help. I began to protect you any chance I got, I didn't know why at first, but I didn't want to see you hurt. I tried to persuade myself it was because you looked defenseless, but you're not. You're strong.

"You didn't care about other people's feelings, but I was proven wrong again. You do care. You want to make people laugh and smile because you want everyone to be happy.

And, and . . . I realized that I wanted to be the one to make you smile, and always protect you, because," I paused, trying to calm this unknown feeling in my chest and regain my breath, but not once did I look away from her eyes.

"Is your heart beating fast?" Rima whispered.

I nodded, then got up, and reached down for her hand. She smiled up at me, making my stomach flutter, and placed her small delicate hands onto mine. I smiled back at her.

"So is mine." She said and I pulled her into a hug.

That's it!

I hope you liked it.

Sorry for not making them kiss or anything, but I dunno, they're only what eleven? x)

And again sorry for not updating for like forever! Dx

I don't deserve any reviews T^T
