• It was nearing winter vacation. Scince fall, I've met a pixy, ogre, shapeshifter, and demon. I was swinging on a swingset. It had snowed a lot that day, so the bottom of my shoes kept brushing against white snow. The park was empty of people except me. I was coming home from school, so I was in a coat with my school uniform on. My coat didn't reach past my waist so it was good I was wearing black socks that reached past my knee. I sighed, my breath easy to see in the cold air. "Hey, Jubei!" Kyo said, waving, walking toward me. He sat down on the swing next to me. "So, this is where you went." he said. "Ogre, Vampire, warlock, werewolf, fairy, pixy, elf, shapeshifter, and demon." I said, changing the subject. "Yup. Just Sorcerer, nymph, nariad, and angel left." he said. "Kyo, what will happen when I obsorb the blood and likeness of all the beings?" I asked. "You'll become a goddess." he said. "You're lying to me. There's something more. There's always something more." I said. "I can't tell you." he said. "Of course not." I sighed. I heard him stand and before I knew it, he was kneeling in font of me, in the snow, with his hands on my lap. "Listen, you know I want to tell you, and you know I can't." he said, looking me straight in the eye. "I know." I said. "Than why-" he tried to say. "It's hard! I know you keep lying to me and I don't know why! I don't know why I'm a goddess, why I need to become one, why you're supposed to help me, why I'm the one who has to become a goddess, why anything!" I said, on the verge of tears. "You don't think I want to tell you?! It hurts me more to see you like this! I hate it! I hate myself for not being able to tell you! It kills me whatcing going aimlessly, not knowing anything! Don't you know that?!" he said. I felt a wetness on my lap, Kyo was crying. "Kyo...I'm sorry, I shouldn't have mentioned it." I apologized. He shook his head "No, it's my fault. Will you forgive me?" he asked. "For what?" I asked. "For making you go through all this. Please forgive me." he said. I placed a gentle hand on his soft jet-black locks and gave him a gentle smile "There's nothing to forgive." I said. He smiled and layed his head on my lap. "I'm so lucky to have a girlfriend like you." he sighed. I took the mitten off my hand and wiped away the tears on his cheeks. "I'm lucky to have such a good boyfriend." I said. After a bit, I said something random "Kyo, what's love?" I asked. He looked up at me "Love is old, Love is new, Love is all, Love is you." he said. "You took that from the Beatles!" I laughed. He smirked "It's true." he said. I blushed a bit "Aren't you cold?" I asked. He moved a bit "A little." he said. "Let's go to my house, you can warm up there." I said, getting up. "No. How about this time, we go to my house?" he asked.
