Hey peoples! I'm bringing you a new chapter! *cheers* I know I've been… lacking when it comes to my writing, but between my computer crapping out on me *cries* and gaining interest in a new anime (Fairy Tail, bitches!) I feel like I've totally lost inspiration. Buuuuut… I checked my emails the other day, and was sooooooo happy to see that people still want me to continue! So, without further delay, (gods know I'm good at procrastinating), here is your long awaited new chapter!

"Kid talking to Dark Kid"
"Dark Kid talking to Kid"
Author speaking/PoV change
Chapter Four: Changes
To say Maka was worried would be an understatement. After Kid's last mission, he had been acting strangely distant. Normally Maka wouldn't be worrying, but after seeing Kid in the hallway dressed asymmetrically, she began to panic. Once Kid had gotten out of the hospital, he had requested everyone give him some time to recover. Naturally, everyone had complied and things slowly went back to normal. When the young Shinigami returned to his classes, almost a month later, the blonde meister noticed Kid acting different. He barely spoke, and when he did his voice was barely above a whisper. His usually bright golden yellow eyes were dulled. Needless to say, Maka wasn't going to let her dear friend (and crush) suffer. Walking up to the drawn -looking boy, she spoke softly.
"Kid-kun, are you alright? I haven't seen you since you were in the hospital. Are you recovered?" The sound of her voice had momentarily caused him to stiffen, then relaxed as he looked into her bright green eyes.
"I am fine Maka-san. Just feeling a little under the weather is all." He gave her a small smile that didn't quite reach his eyes.
"Are you sure? I mean, you aren't dressed… normally today." She gestured towards his untucked black dress shirt, and black jeans with a skull on one side. He looked down, and let out a small laugh.
"To be honest, I didn't notice." He ran a hand through his hair. "I suppose I am still not quite myself. Perhaps a trip to the nurse might do me some good." Maka placed her hand gently on his arm.
"Would you like me to go with you?" Kid jerked his arm out of her reach, and grasped his head.
"NO! I- I mean, I'm fine, Maka-san. You should be more worried about yourself. "He turned and walked down the hall, out of Maka's sight.
"Is it just me, or were his eyes glowing?" She shook her head. 'Not possible'. Shrugging her shoulders at his strange behavior, the scythe meister began heading towards the library. Her favourite place in the entire school. When she got to her destination Maka overheard multiple loud voices arguing.
"I'm telling you! He has been acting weird since the last mission! Have you seen him lately?" Maka could tell this aggravated voice belonged to the older Thompson sister.
"Yeah… but anyone could feel sick after what he went through!" She heard her partner's voice say.
"MAYBE HE'S JUST REALIZING I AM A BETTER GOD THAN HE IS! YAHOO!" Maka cringed as Black*Star's shout could be heard from halfway across campus.
"SHHHHHH! Do you want us kicked out?! Moron!" the bookworm sighed, hearing her partner insult her childhood friend, no doubt sparking yet another fight.
"BRING IT SHARKY!" Unable to just stand there, Maka pushed open the door.
"Guys! You do know a library is supposed to be a quiet place, right?" Hearing her voice, the self-proclaimed "God" jumped down from the table he had been standing on.
"HIYA!" Maka pulled an encyclopedia from out of thin air and sucked in a breath.
"Makaaaaa-CHOP!" she glanced down at the blue haired boy who was now on the ground, holding his head in pain. "I told you. Libraries are QUIET places." She then walked over to the table where Liz, Patty, Soul and Tsubaki were sitting at.
"What's up everybody?" Maka grabbed a chair and plopped down in it. She saw Soul give Liz a look, to which she shook her head.
"Not much Maka-chan. We've just been discussing some things." She glanced towards Tsubaki, who gave her a small smile.
"Care to fill me in?" Soul sighed, and looked towards Liz.
"We need to tell her. She can't be in the dark." By this point, Black*Star had rejoined the group.
"Basically, Kid's been acting like a totally different person. Liz and Patty even saw his eyes glow." Liz shot him a glare.
"What he means to say, is we've all been worried about him. I mean, he hasn't even freaked out about symmetry since we talked to him a week ago. He is barely eating, and I'm afraid the poison is still in his system and making him act different." Maka nodded slowly, still thinking about what Black*Star had said about the twin pistols seeing his eyes glow.
'Maybe it wasn't just a trick of the light.'
"-Aka!" Startled, she jumped out of her seat.
"Sorry guys, but I'm going to go see if he is okay." Grabbing her bag, she bolted out of the door. Rushing past other students in the hallway, she reached the nurses office. Pushing open the door, she saw the school nurse Nygus.
"Hello Maka-san, how can I help you?" The blonde looked around.
"Has Kid-kun been here at all today?" The nurse looked through the book of records.
"No. We haven't seen him at all. May I ask why?" Maka bit her lip.
"I ran into him earlier, and he said his head was hurting and he was going to come here." Nygus tapped her pencil against the steel table.
"Perhaps he decided to head home instead. I could give you permission to skip the rest of your classes and check on him, if you'd like." Maka nodded, and accepted the note which gave her full permission to leave the school.
"Arigato Nygus-sensei." With that, Maka bolted out the door and rushed down the halls.
"Oi! No running in the hallway!" The scythe-meister's pace didn't even decrease. She continued down the hall, until she got to the entrance of DWMA.
"Maka-chan! May I ask why you have decided to just up and leave school?" Ms. Marie stood between the doors and Maka.
"I have a slip from the nurse." She handed the piece of paper to the teacher, who inspected it carefully.
"Is something wrong with Death-sama's son?" Maka nodded slowly and took back her slip.
"To be honest, I'm not sure, but I'm worried about him. May I please go now Marie-sensei?" The bookworm didn't want to be rude, especially to a teacher, but she had to get to Kid. Her gut was telling her she needed to get to him as soon as possible.
"Of course Maka-chan." She stepped aside, allowing the blonde to fly past her. Running down the large amount of steps leading to the academy, she all but ran into a certain cat-girl.
"Oh! Maka-chan! I was just coming to find you!" Blair was wearing one of her usual skimpy outfits, attracting the attention of every male in sight.
"Gomenasai, but I don't have time to chat now, Blair-chan!" The cat cocked her head to the side.
"Alright, but I need to talk to you later!" Waving her hand, Maka continued on to Gallows Manor.
"Ja ne!" Her pace never wavering, she finally made it to the Manor. Walking up to the door, she rapped her knuckled gently. "Kid-kun?" the door slowly opened.
"Maka-san? Why are you here?" She kneeled over, trying to catch her breath.
"I.. was… worried about… you." He took in her disheveled appearance and opened the door wider.
"Please, come in. I'll get you some water." Leading her to the living room, he gestured for her to sit. "I'll be right back." She watched as he disappeared down the hallway. Sighing, she placed her bag on the coffee table, and sat on one of the black leather couches.
'He looks better than he did earlier. I wonder if I was worried for nothing.' A noise caught her attention.
"Here you go, Maka-san." Kid handed her a glass of crystal clear water. She gratefully accepted, and took a long drink.
"Arigato Kid-kun." She gave him a warm smile, which caused him to back away.
"It was nothing. Now, may I ask why you didn't wait until school was out before coming to see me?" Maka frowned.
"I was worried! I went to check and see how you were doing, but Nygus-sensei said you never even came to see her! What's going on Kid?" She flushed, saying his name without the proper honorific.
"I- I'm fine, Maka-san." His cheeks were tinged a light red. Maka stood up and placed her hand on his arm.
"Please. I'm here for you. I care about you." She gasped as Kid shoved her away, and bolted up the stairs.
"It's nothing Maka-san. Please just leave!" She heard a door slam. Huffing, she followed his path up the stairs and down the long hallway, reaching a large pair of double doors.
"Here goes nothing." Sighing to herself, she carefully opened the doors and stepped inside. "Kid-kun?" She walked to the King sized bed, and skimmed her hand over the silky covers. "Kid? Where are you?"
"Why, I'm right here Maka-chan." Gasping, she whirled around, and saw Kid standing in front of the doors.
"K-Kid-kun?" In a blur too quick for her to comprehend, she was suddenly against the back wall of his room, with the Shinigami looming over her.
"I think I prefer it when you just use my name, dear Maka." She squirmed, trying to put some space in between them.
"Kid, what's going on? What are you doing?!" She yelped as she felt his hand moving up and down her side, slowly pushing up her shirt. "Kid" chuckled, his voice sounding slightly deeper.
"I am just enjoying being able to hold you, my love." He bent down, and began placing feather light kisses along her neck and collarbone.
"Kid!" Her face flushed, and she resumed squirming. "Kid wha-" She was caught off guard when soft lips slammed into hers. Keeping one hand resolutely locked on her bare side, the other was placed on the back of her neck, holding her in place. Pressing his lips more firmly against the squirming blonde, he swiped his tongue against her lips, asking for entrance.
"MMM!" He slipped the hand that was on her waist up to her breast, and squeezed. "Ahh!" taking the chance, he plunged his tongue into her moist cavern, exploring and mapping it out. When he brushed his tongue against hers, she gasped softly and tentatively began kissing him back. Their tongues began a battle for dominance, with him coming out on top. He brushed a finger over her clothed nipple, and she arched against him. Eyes flashing, he broke off the kiss to continue nipping at her soft neck.
"My love, you smell heavenly." He smirked against her skin when she gave a small moan of delight. Kid placed a soft kiss at the juncture between her neck and shoulder, before sinking his fangs into her soft flesh.
"Aaaaah! Kid!" Without removing his fangs, he lifted her bridal style and carried her to the large bed.
He drew back, and tossed her onto the bed. Removing his shirt he followed closely behind, pinning her down. The Shinigami looked into her lust hazed green eyes, and ripped her shirt open, exposing her lacy bra. Kid leaned down, and whispered in her ear.
"I will make you mine."
