"You really didn't have to come-"
"I wanted to."
"Isn't it inconvenient, though? What with your family's company-"
"They can manage themselves for an hour or two."
"You'll have to take the bus; it's dirty and common."
"I think that should prove an interesting experience. I've never travelled publically before."
With all her arguments either spun back at her or shot down, Haruhi fell silent. She glanced curiously up at her companion as the two of them exited the supermarket's parking lot, turning onto the sidewalk. After a moment or two, she shifted the bags in her hand and pressed a free finger to her lips.
"I never would've expected this from you, Sempai."
Kyoya raised his brows, beckoning her to proceed.
"Uh, no offense or anything," Haruhi laughed, flushing, "but shopping at a commoner's supermarket just seems, I don't know "
Kyoya said nothing, effectively allowing the conversation to sputter out and die. A voice in the back of his head reminded him that

Chapter Thirteen: Pregnancy test
I unlocked the door and ran to our bedroom and throw my clothes on. Soul was still in bed and watched me curiously.
''Easy Maka, it's not 6 o'clock yet.'' I button my shirt and turned to Soul.
''It's not that, I forgot I was suppose to meet Tsubaki at the Café and I'm late!'' I hated lying to Soul. He deserved to know the truth but I have to be 110% sure I was pregnant before I shed the news. I picked up my tie and tied it loosely around my neck so it would match my a little unbutton shirt.
''Yea okay, have fun.'' Soul then turned his back to me and he fell asleep. He looked so peaceful when he made that cute face when he was asleep. I went to the bed and leaned over him.
''You deserve to know the truth but I have to be sure myself before I can tell you.'' I kissed his forehead but as I pulled away I felt a pair of lips meet mine. I closed my eyes and enjoyed the ecstasy. Soul then pulled away as his hand cupped my cheek.

The first day of senior year was a bit hectic as he expected. Justin's mother dropped him off at school, ignoring his protests of just wanting to take the bus. She even wore a poor disguise of a large straw hat and sunglasses to help ease his worries of embarrassing him (which it didn't). He rolled his eyes as he slung his black backpack on his back and trudged towards the halls, his new schedule in hand. Getting around wasn't nearly as bad as his first day of school last year (since he knew the basic layout of the school this time around) but now that people knew his name, people who had nothing better to do with their lives made a point to pick on him.
For instance: When he entered his second class a tall blonde jock-looking boy tripped him on the way to the back of the class. At lunch he carried his tray of food to a table, only to have it shoved up on his chest, spilling his glass of Gatorade that came with the meal and plate of spaghetti all over h
String of Fate Chapter 9The drive back to the hotel was uneventful, yet made Justin's heart skip a beat. At every stoplight Freddy made a point to lower his hand and touch the younger man's, sometimes playing with his fingers as they waited for the light to signal they could continue on. Each and every time made Justin's gut squirm, and his heart to stop for a moment. He didn't know if this was normal, or something that should be a cause for concern. He just ignored his thoughts, and figured it was normal, dealing with it as if he were accustomed to this new feeling already.More Like This
The two arrived back at the base at nearly eleven at night; Justin shyly holding Freddy's hand as they made their way to the elevator. They received a few curious glances from the hotel staff, but of course no one said anything. Nor would they to anyone else. Tristan was a firm believer in the phrase “Money buys privacy” and in their case it really did. Justin would be truly shocked if a hotel employee went to a reporter bef

Originally, Justin did not think of shopping as any kind of a sport. He thought it was a bit of a chore normally having to carry his mother's bags around and look idly around the store in an attempt to make someone think of him as a poor soul for having to be there. Normally, it worked; In Brookings, Oregon it worked. In San Francisco, California, however, it did not. Everyone was equally busy in the outdoor shopping mall, rushing about trying to get the best deals for the best clothes that they had to offer. There were entertainers of every kind on every other block, beatboxers, dancers, comedians, even a set of clowns on one street. It was like a whole different world than what he was use to.
The hooded teen sat on a bench in front of a BART station (The Subway system of Northern California) and waited for Raimy to exit the store she had gone into. She told him to wait there almost as fast as she ran in, leaving the other to sit holding two pink bags f

The show went on as planned in a large venue that was usually used for Broadway plays. Women, Men, Children, even a few older people all cheered alike as the band played. The only one out of everyone in the venue that was not excited was Justin. He stood off to the side, cheering, and giving fake smiles to all who passed, fooling everyone from the fact that his mind was drifting off with worry. He hadn't calmed down since Freddy had held him back at the hotel, and his heart was always quick to speed up whenever he recalled the warm feeling of his arms.
In the end, no one asked him what was wrong. No one saw him pull himself out of his thoughts every time he was spoken to. No one even thought it weird for him to rush out of the building before the band. He knew the way to the hotel, since it was right down the street only a few blocks down, so he wasn't worried about that, and no one thought he was apart of the crew, so that was a blessing in it's self.

The ride up to San Francisco was uneventful and boring, as Justin predicted it would be. He sat by the window, staring out and watching as the scenery changed from brown to green then back to brown again. It became repetitive to the point where he swore it put him in a trance making him fall asleep. He was awaken by the shake of his shoulder from Freddy, who said nothing as he started to the front of the bus.
"W-wait," Justin gasped out, reaching out and tumbling over the seats in his attempt to grab the other man in his groggy state. The older man turned and raised a brow, laughing and walking over as he helped the teen to his feet. "Why aren't you.....Freddy today?" What was that suppose to mean? He didn't even know himself. He shook his head and rubbed his eye as he pulled his hood up and looked to the other, hoping he knew what he was talking about.
"I am Freddy. Did you hit your head while you were asleep?"
Great. Now he was teasing him.

Justin sat uncomfortably pressed up to the door of Tristan's white pickup truck. He chewed at his left lip ring, staring at the moving sidewalk as they drove down the street. Freddy had borrowed his friend's truck swapping his motorcycle keys for Tristan's since their assistant flat out refused to go on it.
"It looks like it's going to fall apart if I sit on it, let alone have it move," Justin stated, glaring at the older man who only laughed and shook his head, heading back into the studio to swap vehicles.
The truth was, of course, that Justin simply did not want to be close to him. He didn't trust the man. Why should he? Was he given a reason to? No. He was given all reasons not to trust him. He closed his eyes, pulling his hood more forward so to hide his face. He knew the other was looking at him at every chance he could get, which made it even more awkward for the teen.
He felt the truck slow to a stop and opened his eyes, frowning. They wer

Justin led Beyond Heaven's door down the hall "of fame" as his co-workers liked to call it. At the very end, the previously clean whiteboard read their band name on it in his mother's neat handwriting. He took the key card for the door and swiped it, opening it as a click was heard and held the door open for them.
"This is nicer then I expected," Raimy commented, walking in and smiling as she rushed over to a set of drums off to the side. She sat behind them and traced them and looked over at Justin happily. Her smile was contagious making the teenager smile as well and look to the door as Conrad stood, gazing around, while Tristan sat down at the table on the other end of the room and laid out some papers, and Freddy sat on the couch, seeming to be amazed with how comfortable the cushion was.
"Do you think I could trouble you with a bottle of mineral water?" Conrad asked softly. His voice was naturally husky and deep, immediately making Justin intimidat
