*Ding Dong* The doorbell rang, causing Crona to jump slightly at the unexpected noise. "Pizza's here!" Her best friend Maka Albarn yelled to their friends, carrying in two large white boxes, both with a picture of its contents on the top.
Maka, and her weapon Soul, were nice enough to invite all their friends over again- as a celebration for another day off of their schoolwork and deadly missions at the DWMA. It had been the first time in the last few weeks that everyone came over like this. It still made Crona nervous since she still didn't know them all that well.
Black * Star and Patty were stuffing their faces in the food while everyone quietly chatted. "Save some for the rest of us" Maka reminded them angrily-but they didn't listen. It didn't really matter because Crona wasn't feeling all that hungry anyway. She was too busy wondering how to deal with this new feeling that loomed in the air.

Crona was sitting cross legged on the floor in Maka's room. Maka was pacing back and forth. "So your telling me you were with Kid yesterday?" Maka asked Crona. She nodded. "Why didn't you tell me? I was worried sick when I couldn't find you!" Maka yelled. "S-sorry." Crona frowned.
Maka sighed and dropped onto the ground. "No, it's just me. Sorry for yelling at you." Maka put her hand on her own forehead, as if calming herself down.
After Kid had said those words, they didn't speak for the rest of that day. They had both just carefully gotten back on the skate board and Kid had dropped Crona off at Maka's house. Too tired and shocked to explain where she had been, Crona had dropped into her bed and slept. The next moring Maka had questioned her.
"And what happened, may I ask?" Maka looked up. Crona blushed and looked to the side uncomfortably. "Well, um, he wanted me

Crona was falling through the air, getting closer to the ground with every second. Kid stared as she fell. He suddenly snapped and realized he was doing nothing. He quikly started to fly down, trying to keep up with the screaming Crona.
She was a few feet from the ground when Kid flew under her and caught her. She hit his arms hard, but Kid was strong for his size, so he caught her easily. He caught her like a princess, her back resting on one arm and her legs on the other. Kid slowly hovered down and touched back down lightly.
Kid lowered Crona carefully to the ground. She then sank to her knees and started to cry again. "I-I'm sorry!" Kid hung his head, ready to be hit or something. Instead, Crona flung her arms around him and cried more. Kid looked suprised. He blushed and hugged Crona back.
"No, it's my fault, I'm sorry. I'm so so sorry." Crona weeped. "No, it's fine really. I was just

He placed his hand on Crona's head. "Hey!" Crona looked up shakily. "H-hi?" Crona looked into his yellow eyes. Crona blushed hard.
"All right, anyways, do you remember what I said earler? About getting 8 seconds?" Kid smiled.
Crona's face was completely red and she was shakeing. Where was Maka? She didn't know how to deal with all of this attention. But still, she nodded, she remembered this morning, when he had held her hands. She closed her eyes, not wanting to look into his.

She knew how needy she was, and was disgusted with herself for it. She didn't even need Ragnarok there to beat it into her (quite literally). But for some reason, they didn't care, Maka still loved her, like a sister she had never had.
And then there was him…
As said before, she wasn’t sure how it happened…but she knew when it happened, all to well.
It was a few days after she had been brought back to Shibusen, after they learned of her betrayal. She knew that Maka and her other friends had forgiven her. But the guilt still burned and ate away at her soul until it was too much to bear.
She remembered vaguely the screams, her

"FATHER! PLEASE DON'T DO THIS!!!" Kid yells, following and begging his father as Spirit leads Crona in chains down the cell tower's halls. "Crona has done nothing wrong! YOU CANT DO-" Kid yells as his father, Lord Death, turns to face Kid.
"Kid as much as you care for Crona, there is Black Blood in Crona's body. And with the fact Medusa had expeiremented to create a Kishin out of Crona, we must take special measures." Lord Death states, to Kid's anger.
"BUT FATHER-!" Kid yells, before Lord Death points for Kid to leave.

Of course, when you tell your children how you met you met their mother, you tend to leave things like that out...
When I told them, I smiled, and simply said, “we met on a boat.” My kid's liked this answer. Their eyes lit up and my daughter fondly said, “how romantic!”
It wasn't until they were ten that I gave them any details.
“I met your mother on a boat, I was actually on a mission to kill whatever had terrorized the nearby town.”
“Was Mom helping you?”
“N-no... Not exactly...” And with that I told them it was bedtime.
When they were thirteen, and about to enroll in the school, I decided to sit them down and finish the story.

Crona sat on the floor of her cell, back towards the door, and chin on top of her knees. The tears wanted to flow but she kept on fighting them. She didn't want to cry because it wasn't worth it.
She had the choice of not following her mother and yet she did because of her naivety. She knows that she shouldn't regret anything that she did because she held responsibility of it.
She sighed for the umpteenth time, holding her knees closer to her body.
He still wasn't coming out.
Oh, how Crona wanted company at that moment. She could feel herself breaking and it hurt so much. Nevertheless, Crona tried again.
"Ragnarok?" she whispered "Are you there?"
"Please? Are you there?" she croaked, the tears finally came and it didn't stop.

It was dark on the roads of Shibusen at night. She held on to her left arm with her other hand clenched tightly around it. She stared off into the blue, wondering what her friends were doing...
The wind picked up, dragging the crimson leaves of the fall around her feet. She sighed, crushed by the feelings of regret. She had hurt so many of her loved ones so many times, she thought she should just end it all, and herself, but she had been writing poems like Maka had said, and it was helping her a little. Still, that ugly feeling ate at her, dragging her down into a pit of despair.
Wandering farther into alley ways, she dragged herself forward. She wanted nothing more than to be saved, to be pulled out of her dredful feelings.

The summer had rolled into Death City, and so had a new student. Everyone noticed and introduced them selves. Maka led the new kid around, showing them the ins and outs of DWMA. It felt weird to be welcomed for Crona, who had never felt so welcomed, even if the name "New Kid" was what the students had begun referring to Crona as. But only one student had yet to meet Crona, and it would be a true crossing of stars when these two met.

"Yes Kid, very symmetrical." Liz sighs sarcastically while Patty skipped happily next to them.

Kid lulls happily.

"Sh-shinigami-kun." A timid voice spoke out.
The thin pink haired girl stood off to the side with her right hand holding her left arm. The movement stuck in the same awkward gesture as always. Her soft pink hair was still in that frustrating uneven style and she still had the same habit to look down at her feet whenever someone spoke to her.
Crona's powdered blue eyes glanced up from under her dark lashes. The girl bit down on her bottom lip making Kid's heart do flip-flops.
Kid's golden eyes looked over at her in relief, but made quick to change his face expression . In truth he didn't want Crona to know how much he craved her attention and presence.
She was very much like a drug that the shinigami had to have all the time.

But now laying by you,
It seems so clear,
That my breath only comes,
When you are near,
So come closer,
Give me a reason to believe,
Just do me one favor,

It had been an odd start to a seemingly pleasant day for Kid. He woke up again to the hot sun on his face. A smiling nurse greeting him when he awoke. She was a sub for the normal one. Kid woke up the gentle girl beside him. She awoke with a silent grunt sitting up to face Kid. She seemed shyer than normal.
That was when the nurse finally gave Kid an important glance.
"Your wanted in the Death room, your father says its important" She said grimly as if she already knew what his dad wanted. Kid kissed Chrona's head.
"I'll be right back lamb" Kid promised walking out of the room leaving the young nurse to chat with the blushing Chrona. All that was in Chrona's head was the echoing question "Did that amazing boy call me a cute nickname?"
Outside the door was a crowd of curiose classmates. Had the son of Lord Death fallen for the demon sword? It had sounded to quiche. Kid ignored everyone huredly passing them to speak with hid father. Maka rushed up to him a little concerned for her skitis
