Everyone stared at the young boy in front of them, who, at this precise moment, was laughing like an evil mad-man. Everyone was, to say the least, frightened out of their minds.
"Allen?" Lenalee asked hesitantly.
The only reply was an increase in the volume of laughter.
'Allen! You need to calm down! Don't let your Noah control you! You can fight it!' Neah screamed, trying to get the boy under control.
Like Lenalee, he got no real response.
Then the Cyclops did something that really turned the tables, it mimicked the screams of Allen's friends.
The insane laughter ceased and Allen froze.
"Allen?" Lavi asked.
Said boy growled and snatched up the fallen Riptide.
"No, Allen! It'll burn you!" Percy yelled.
True enough, Allen's hand was smoking, though Allen didn't seem to notice as he jabbed, stabbed, blocked, dodged, and swiped at the monster before him, yet never getting hit by the Cyclops.
The monster roared, getting annoyed at its prey.
Everyone else was shocked, they never knew Allen was so skilled with a sword, sure he had the Sword of Exorcism but that was a totally different sword from Riptide, they required totally different ways of fighting, even Kanda was surprised.
The Cyclops just kept getting hit and it was starting to get frustrated so it decided on a new tactic, it went after the unarmed crowd. It turned its back to Allen and raised its fists at the others.
Allen growled and jumped on its back, throttling it.
"What the Hades is he doing?!" Percy yelled.
"... Strangling it...?" Lavi said uncertainly.
"But, surely he knows that won't work." Annabeth said.
"I'm not sure." Percy muttered.
The Cyclops roared and tried to fling the newly awakened Noah off its back but the boy clung tight.
"We have to help him!" Lenalee yelled.
"I'm not sure if he needs any help..." Lavi said.
All of a sudden a loud, high-pitched noise filled the air, it resembled a song, the Cyclops let loose a loud roar and disintegrated into golden dust. Allen dropped to the ground, breathing heavily. He swayed on his feet before collapsing.
"Allen!" Tyki yelled as he ran up to the fallen boy, he pulled him onto his lap and held him close.
"Is he alright?" Lavi asked.
Tyki nodded, "He gonna be fine."
"What the fuck just happened?" Kanda asked.
"I don't know." Tyki muttered.
"What about what happened to Allen? He completely lost his mind." Lavi said.
"His Noah took over." Road said.
"So Neah? I thought he promised he wouldn't do something like that." Percy said.
"No, not Neah. Neah is just the old Fourteenth, not Allen's Noah." Road explained.
Tyki turned to Lenalee and Lavi, "Do you remember what happened on the Ark?"
"When you went all crazy psycho bitch?" Lavi asked cheerfully, despite the situation.
"Yes, that," Tyki growled through clenched teeth, "That was my Noah taking over."
"Then why didn't Allen try to attack us?" Lenalee asked.
"He was fighting it, I was unconscious when Joido took over so, obviously, I couldn't fight back." Tyki said.
"Okay, what happens when he wakes up?" Percy asked.
"I'm not really sure..." Tyki said.
"Of course not..." Percy sighed. 'Does no one ever have helpful answers?' He thought to himself.
Then they all heard a groan and everyone looked down at Allen, but he hadn't moved.
"Ow." Came a voice.
Everyone snapped their heads towards the voice and were met with the sight of a very disheveled Nico di Angelo, leaning on a tree, rubbing his head.
"Nico!" Annabeth yelled, surprised.
"Why do you sound/look so surprised?" Nico asked, "Wait... Oh my gods! You people forgot about me!" Nico yelled, pointing accusing fingers at all of them.
"Whaaaaaat? No we didn't..." Lavi said, rubbing the back of his head.
"Riiiiight, well, I'm gonna go stand over there with Kanda," Nico said, Kanda gave him the death glare, "Never mind, I'mm gonna stay here." Nico said quickly, making everyone sweatdrop.
'Allen. Oi! Allen! Wake up!' Neah yelled in Allen's head.
Allen just groaned mentally (somehow).
'Fine, if you don't get up, I'll just take control again.' Neah threatened.
"I'm up!" Allen yelled, shooting into a sitting position.
'That hurt. I am hurt by that reaction.' Neah whined.
"Allen! Are you alright?!" Lenalee asked urgently.
"My head hurts like Hell and I'm sore." Allen moaned, rubbing his head.
Lenalee didn't say anything, she just looked at the boy warily, as if she expected him to attack.
"Why are you looking at me like that?" Allen asked as everyone gathered around him sharing Lenalee's look of distrust (except for Nico, who seemed to be completely lost at what was happened, and Kanda, who looked bored), "You guys don't trust me, do you?" He sounded as if he expected this.
No one confirmed it, but no one denied it.
"Just because I'm a Noah?" Allen turned to the Noahs, "Just because of what Neah did?"
Again, he was met with silence.
"Even after all the times I've saved you lives?! Even after all the times I've risked my lives for yours?! Even after all the times I've promised I would never abandon you?!" Allen was pissed now, how could they do this to him? What had he done to deserve this treatment?
Everyone flinched at his words but said nothing.
"Fine," Allen said quietly, "I guess we're not as good of friends as I thought. Were we ever friends at all? Was our friendship fake? Were you all just waiting for me to loose control?"
"Allen-" Lenalee began.
"No." Allen interrupted, "Just, don't."
No one said anything after that.
Allen nodded solemnly and, without saying a word, turned and walked right out of camp.
'Allen... are you alright?' Neah asked, concern clear in his voice.
"I just d-didn't know I could h-hurt this much." Allen sobbed, not even bothering to talk inside his head.
Neah didn't know what to say, what could he say? He'll slaughter them all for hurting his nephew so much.
"Neah, I know what you're thinking, don't kill them." Allen said tiredly, the pain evident in his voice.
'How can you say that after what they did to you?!' Neah yelled, he really shouldn't have been shocked, this was Allen after all.
Back with the others:
"How could you do that?!" Nico raged, "He's your friend! How could you betray him like that?!"
Lenalee began tearing up, Lavi looked guilty, so did Percy, Annabeth looked like she was about to run after Allen but thought better of it, and Kanda just looked more pissed off than usual.
"Did you see the look on his face?!" Nico continued, "It was filled with such pain and sorrow, if I didn't know better, I would have thought he had been tortured in Tartarus for centuries!"
"Would you trust him? If he suddenly turned into your sworn enemy?!" Lavi asked.
"You seem to be trusting those two just fine!" Nico yelled, pointing to the other two Noah.
No one knew what to say, they knew he was right, they had just betrayed their friend, just like they had sworn they'd never do.
Lenalee burst into tears (She seems to be doing that often. Sorry), "What have we done?!" She yelled.
"I'm going after him. Just pray that he'll want to come back." Nico hissed, glaring at all of them before storming out the way Allen had left.
"Allen!" Nico yelled, "Allen!"
'Someone's calling you.' Neah told the boy, who was sitting against a tree, his knees pulled up to his chest, his arms locked around his knees, and his head buried in his arms, his lithe body shaking.
"ALLEN!" Nico screamed, bursting into the clearing where he saw the shaking form of Allen Walker, "Oh Allen." He said, slowly walking over to the boy, who suddenly looked up but, instead of the piercing silver that Nico expected, he was met with molten gold.
"Ah, Nico. Come to break my nephew even more?" Neah hissed.
"No. I promise. I'm disgusted by what they did, but I know that they need Allen and Allen needs them so, please, let me take him back." Nico said.
"Why should I do that? Those people hurt him, broke him so much he actually begged me to erase him. Of course, I couldn't do that, so I knocked him out and took control." Neah said. He spoke as if he was hurt too, it pained him to see his darling nephew buried in so much sorrow.
Nico was shocked but he pressed on, "Please, you know that he thinks he has nothing to live for without his friends. Please..."
Neah sighed, "I guess you're right. Lead the way." He said after a moments thought.
Nico nodded and helped Neah up. He turned around and walked back the way he came.
Back with the others:
"How could we do that to him?!" Lenalee yelled, "We're supposed to be his friends!"
"Che. Friends are supposed to protect each other, not hurt each other." Kanda said, leaning against a tree with his arms crossed and a scowl on his face.
"Kanda!" Lavi scolded, "That's not helpful!"
"The truth rarely is." Kanda said.
"What's that supposed to mean?!" Tyki yelled.
"You guys call yourself his friends but when he needs comfort, compassion, reassurance, and people by him, you just sat there, silent. You're always badgering him to let you share his burdens but when the Moyashi needs you most, you turn a cold shoulder. What great friends you are." Kanda scoffed.
Everyone let that sink in, he was right, they all knew he was.
Suddenly Nico and Neah walked into camp.
"Allen!" Percy yelled.
"Nope. Guess again, assholes." Neah said.
"Neah." Kanda growled, he still didn't trust the Noah, though he didn't trust many people at all, especially Noah, though Allen was the exception.
"What about Allen?!" Lenalee asked urgently.
"Why would you people care? You're the ones that hurt him in the first place." Neah snarled.
No one spoke, what was there to say?
"Fine, you want to know what happened?" Neah growled, "I'll tell you. Allen begged me to take his pain away and completely take control. The boy who vowed to keep walking forever, begged me to cut his feet off."
Lenalee began sobbing.
"What happened to him? Did you actually erase him?" Annabeth asked.
"Of course not! I love him like a son! I would never kill him! I knocked him out and took over for a little bit!" Neah yelled. He felt a presence in the back of his mind but it was silent.
'Allen?' Neah asked.
Neah sighed, "Alright guys, Allen is awake but he refuses to talk to me so I'm just gonna give him control and see what happens." He told the others, who looked nervous, not because Allen was a Noah, but because of how he'll react to them, but they nodded anyway.
Everyone waited as the Fourteenth Noah's eyes went from gold to silver. What broke their hearts was when those silver eyes turned dull and filled with tears.
"Oh Allen..." Lenalee whispered, her hand covering her mouth.
Nico stepped up to Allen's side, "Allen?" He asked as he put his hand on his half-brother's shoulder. Apparently though, he didn't take much to make Allen collapse because once Nico put his hand on Allen's shoulder, the boy fell to the ground.
"Allen!" Lenalee yelled, running forward, pulling the boy into her lap. She felt him shaking and realized he was crying. "Allen, we are so sorry. We were just scared. We're sorry. You're our friend, we never meant to hurt you." She whispered to the young Exorcist.
Tyki came over and took the boy from Lenalee, who looked like she was about to protest but she remembered what she had seen and let him have Allen. Tyki sat down with the boy in his lap.
"Shounen," Tyki soothed, "It's okay. We're so, so, so sorry. We weren't thinking. I love you Shounen, you being the Fourteenth can't change that," He stroked Allen's hair softly, "Shhhh. It's okay, I promise."
"Please don't l-leave me," Allen sobbed into Tyki's shirt, "I don't want to be alone again!" He clutched Tyki's shirt like it was his lifeline.
"It's okay. I promise, I'll never leave." Tyki whispered, he realized that they all kept forgetting that Allen was still just a kid. A strong kid sure, but he's still just a kid, a kid who had lost so many people and so many things in life that his heart must be in pieces, feebly trying to tape its self back together.
It took a couple of minutes for Allen to calm down, "I'm sorry." Allen said once he's stopped sniffling.
'What are you apologizing for?!' Neah yelled.
'Calm down please.' Allen sighed.
"Why are you apologizing?" Nico asked, sometimes it scared Allen how similar he was to Neah.
"I lost control, I don't blame you for not trusting me." Allen said, his smile obviously strained.
Lenalee walked right up to Allen and slapped him across the face, "Don't you dare apologize! It was our fault you were hurting so much so don't you dare try to shoulder anything and try to make us feel better again!" Lenalee yelled.
At first Allen looked shocked as he put a hand to his red cheek, then a warm smile raced his features.
"Stop smiling like that! Like everything is going to be okay and we did nothing wrong! Yell at us, scream at us, make us feel like the worst people in the world for hurting you!" Lenalee screamed.
"I can't yell at you, you reacted just like anyone else would have." Allen said softly.
"You wouldn't, you would smile and treat them like it was any other day." Lenalee said.
"Maybe, but on the inside I would be wary, I wouldn't trust them completely." Allen said.
"Can you just accept our apology and stop trying to make everything your fault?" Lenalee sighed.
"Okay, I accept your apology," Allen chuckled, "Though there wasn't a need for one in the first place." He muttered under his breath.
Lenalee sighed again, "That's probably the best I'm gonna get out of you so I guess it'll have to do."
"Okay, now that that drama is over, can we get some sleep?" Lavi asked.
Everyone mumbled their agreement and began to make their way to their respected tents. Everyone but Tyki and Road.
"Um, where do we sleep?" Tyki asked.
"You can sleep with me." Allen said. At Road's excited face, he added, "Only Tyki, not you Road." Road pouted, her arms crossed over her chests, her bottom lip thrust out. "Come on Tyki, you're sleeping with me tonight." Allen said, gesturing to his tent.
"NO!" Nico and Percy yelled, they did not want a repeat of what happened at camp.
"What's wrong with you two? We'll only be sleeping." Allen huffed.
"I seriously doubt that sleeping is the only thing you will be doing." Nico muttered. Allen openly gaped at the implications.
'Oh, come on! It's not like he's wrong, you've done it before.' Neah said.
'So?! How would he know that?!' Allen said.
'You did do it in the cabin you share with him...' Neah pointed out.
'AAAAAAHHHH! DO YOU THINK HE SAW?!' Allen screeched.
'Do you remember when you heard the door open and close but you wrote it off as your imagination...?' Neah asked, leaving Allen to figure out the rest.
'Oh my god, Nico saw us.' Allen muttered, eyes wide.
'So did Percy but that is beside the point.'
'PERCY SAW US!?' Allen screamed.
'Yes, but who cares? I think you should listen to Nico and Percy, I don't like Tyki being with my adorable nephew!' Neah said.
Allen rolled his eyes, embarrassment forgotten, 'It's none of your business Neah!'
'Of course it is! Anything involving you is my business. Plus,Tyki is just a slimy octopus who's main goal in life is to corrupt little adorable boys!' Neah whined melodramatically.
'Riiiiight, well, I'm gonna block you out now.' Allen said slowly.
'You can silence me but you can't silence the truth!'
With that, Allen turned his attention back to the real world where he was met with the sight of Lavi on his knees, clinging to Tyki's legs, sobbing.
"You can't violate Moyashi-chan, he's too innocent and adorable!" Lavi balled.
"MY NAME IS ALLEN, BAKA!" The previously mentioned Beansprout yelled.
Lavi stopped crying for a moment and flung himself at Allen, crushing the boy and began sobbing on him, "Moyashi-chan! Say it isn't so! I haven't even given you the 'birds and the bees' talk yet!"
Allen's eyebrow twitched, "Couple things, one, it is NOT your decision! Two, I lived with Cross for three years, I do NOT need 'the talk'. And third, I AM NOT SHORT!" He kicked Lavi off him and kneed him in the stomach.
"Ooooowwww..." Lavi moaned.
"Serves you right." Kanda grumbled.
"Guys," Road said, "As much as I love seeing people in pain, and you all know I do, I still don't know where to sleep."
"Sorry to do this to you Lenalee but," Percy said as he shoved Road at Lenalee, "Have fun!"
Everyone bolted to their tents before Lenalee could exact her revenge, leaving Road and Lenalee alone in the clearing. Lenalee sighed and grabbed Road by the collar of her shirt and dragged her to the tent.
Percy was dreaming, it wasn't any normal dream either, it was a demigod dream (damn prophetic shits). In the dream Percy was standing in front of a table. On the table, there was a women strapped down. Only when he looked closer did he realize that she was Persephone. Then a man came into the room, he was fat, wearing a cream colored tailcoat, his top hat was definitely strange, it had a ribbon that looked like piano keys around it, with a mini piano to match, his smile though, it was enough to make anyone cringe and want to run away.
'This must be the Millennium Earl,' Percy thought, 'I would hate to be an Exorcist.'
"Why are you doing this Earl?" Percy heard Persephone ask.
"Why? Oh it's simple really, kidnapping you will bring my darling brother to me!" The Earl chuckled.
"That's impossible! We killed him!" Persephone yelled.
'Brother? Who exactly did the gods kill that meant so much to the Earl?' Percy wondered.
"True. But, you see, he's come back and, this time, I won't let you take him away from me." The Earl snarled.
"This isn't just about getting him back, is it?" Persephone asked.
"How perceptive you are," The Earl sneered, "A couple of my Noahs have gone against me and I need to punish them."
'Road and Tyki.' Percy gasped.
"There's still something else," Persephone said, "You want revenge!"
"You killed one of my brother!" The Earl growled.
"He was in a rage and he was too powerful, he was dangerous! Why do you even want him back?! He rebelled against you, he tried to kill you!" Persephone yelled.
"That is none of your business." The Earl hissed, turning to walk out of the room.
"You don't want to be alone," Persephone called out, "You connected with him, you two always stood out in the Noah family."
The Earl said nothing as he stormed out of the room, slamming the door behind him.
Percy bolted up in his tent, breathing heavily. 'I have to tell the others' he thought. He jumped up and walked out of the tent. He walked to the closest tent, which was Kanda's. He skipped that one. Lavi was next. Percy walked and kicked the sleeping Lavi, who was cuddling with his pillow muttering "Strike", in the shin.
"Ah!" Lavi yelled, jolting awake, he saw Percy, "Percy! What the hell man?!"
"Quit your whining! I have something important to tell everyone, so help me get the rest of us up." Percy said as he exited the tent out of the tent. He walked to the next one, which was Annabeth. He peeked in and saw her sleeping peacefully and he smiled. He gently shook her.
She groaned and opened her eyes slightly, "Percy? What do you need?"
"I have something important to tell everyone." Percy said.
"Can't it wait until later? I'm tired." Annabeth moaned sleepily.
Percy chuckled, "No. Now get up Wise Girl."
Annabeth groaned again but got up all the same.
Percy walked out again and saw that Lavi had woken Nico up and the redhead was making his way towards Lenalee and Road's tent. Percy sighed, 'Of course he would go towards the girl's tent,' Percy thought, 'But that means he has to wake up Road.' Percy smirked at the thought of Lavi getting chased down by a bunch of flying candles. Then he realized, 'I have to wake up Allen and Tyki. What if they did that last night!?' He stared at the tent flap, gathering the courage to enter. He sucked in a large breath, puffed out his chest, and strode inside. What he saw surprised him; Allen Walker, the Exorcist prophesied to destroy time itself, and Tyki Mikk, the evil Noah of Pleasure who destroyed Allen Innocence at one time, were cuddling. Allen had his head on Tyki's chest (who still didn't have a shirt on since he ripped it off to 'stop the bleeding') with his arms on Tyki's abdomen, while Tyki had his arms wrapped around Allen, both were sleeping peacefully, with small smiles on their faces. It was so adorable, Percy almost didn't want to wake them up, but he knew he had to, so he crouched down (after taking a picture, mind you) and gently shook them.
"Mmmm... Tyki... Five more minutes..." Allen mumbled, snuggling more into Tyki's chest.
Percy shook them both again, "Guys, you need to get up, we need to talk." Allen just groaned.
Tyki, though, opened his eyes and shook Allen lightly, "Oi, Shounen, you have to get up."
Allen blearily opened his eyes, "Fine, I'm awake."
"I have something to tell you all, so come on." Percy said as they followed him out of the tent. Outside, almost everyone was there, they all looked tired and Lavi seemed to be bleeding from multiple minor stab wounds.
"Where's Kanda?" Percy asked when he realized who was missing.
They all looked towards the samurai's tent.
"Lavi! You were supposed to wake him up!" Percy yelled at said redhead.
"You never told me that!" Lavi said.
"It was implied!" Percy said.
"Well, would you want to wake up a sleeping Yu-chan?" Lavi asked.
"Oh, come on! It can't be that bad! If you won't do it, I will!" Percy sighed.
Everyone who had known Kanda for a good amount of time silently prayed that Percy made it to Heaven.
The son of Poseidon made his way to Kanda's tent and peeked inside. The Exorcist was laying on his side, his usual scowl on his face, he was even holding Mugen.
'The dude sleeps with his sword? Damn.' Percy thought. He slowly leaned down and was just about to shake Kanda when a hand shot out and grabbed his wrist in an iron-like grip.
"What do you think you're doing?" Kanda growled, glaring at the frightened teen in front of him.
"W-waking you up?" Percy stuttered.
"Get out." Kanda hissed.
"But-" Percy said.
"Now! Unless you want to feel Mugen slice through your neck! I'll be outside in a minute." Kanda said, letting go of Percy's wrist.
Percy squeaked and bolted out of the tent As soon as the sun hit his face and he was out of Kanda's line of sight he yelled, "I SURVIVED!"
Kanda stalked out of his tent, not three minutes later muttering something about, "Baka Sakana (Stupid fish in Japanese)."
"Okay, not that everyone's here, I have something important to discuss." Percy said.
Once he was done explaining his dream, everyone was silent and thoughtful.
"Who was Persephone talking about?" Annabeth asked.
The Exorcists and Noah all traded glances.
"Neah." Allen said.
'Does the Earl really think that I'll go back to him if he kidnaps a goddess?' Neah asked.
'Apparently.' Allen said.
'Wow, he's even more stupid then I remember.' Neah gasped.
Allen chuckled lightly, 'Yeah, I guess so. Wait, Neah, the Earl and Persephone said that the gods were the ones who killed you. I thought the Earl killed you.'
Neah sighed, 'Well, the gods were the ones who actually carried out the deed because, apparently, during my rage towards the Earl, I had become too powerful and posed a threat to society. They sent Apollo (for some reason) to kill me but that failed so Zeus went and struck me down with his stupid lightning bolt.'
'Wow, what assholes.' Allen said, eyes wide.
'Pretty much.' Neah chuckled.
'So, everyone else needs to know and I really don't want to have to explain it, do you want to take over for a bit and tell everyone else what you just told me?' Allen asked.
Neah was shocked, 'You just offered to let me take control...?!'
'I could take back the offer if that's what you prefer...' Allen said.
'No! It's fine!' Neah yelled quickly.
Back in the real world:
"Why would the gods want Neah dead?" Lenalee asked.
"Persephone said something about his becoming too powerful." Percy said.
"So, he was posing some kind of a threat?" Nico suggested.
"Right you are, Son of Hades!" Neah said, giving his a thumbs-up.
"Ah! Neah!" Nico yelped, "What are you doing here?!"
"Allen offered to let me take control so I could explain everything to you." Neah said cheerfully.
"Okay! Explain!" Lavi said, equally cheerful.
Neah nodded and explained everything once more.
"Okay, so why does everyone believe that it was the Earl who killed you?" Kanda asked.
"Because that is what the gods wanted everyone to believe, they didn't want anyone finding out about them." Neah said.
"Why did you let us believe that the Earl killed you?" Kanda asked suspiciously.
"I had that small problem of being, you know, DEAD at the time!" Neah yelled.
"What about when you talked to us earlier, or when you talked to Moyashi in his head?" Kanda asked coldly.
"I don't have to explain myself to you!" Neah scoffed.
'Neah, now that you've explained everything that needs explaining at the moment (and fought with Kanda), can I take over?' Allen asked.
"Oi, guys!" Neah yelled to get everyone's attention, who had begun to talk among themselves, "You are going to need to get going if you want to get to Florida anytime soon so I'm letting Allen take over and you guys can head out!" He closed his eyes and retreated to the back of Allen's (his?) mind.
"Alright guys! Let's get going!" Allen cheered.
Everyone nodded and left the clearing.
Who Knows How Long Later:
"Are we anywhere close?" Allen sobbed as he trudged along.
"I'm not sure... Wait, what is that?" Percy gasped as he looked up. A tall castle stood before them, blue and white.
"Wait, isn't that..." Allen trailed off in realization, "Dammit Annabeth! How long have we been in Florida?!"
"What do you mean?" Nico asked, "Where are we?"
"Orlando." Allen said simply, glaring at Annabeth, who was trying to figure out what was wrong.
"What?! But that's in the middle of Florida! How do you know?!" Tyki gasped.
"That," Allen pointed to the castle, "Is Cinderella's Castle, located in Walt Disney World, in Orlando Florida."
After digesting this new development, everyone slowly turned to Annabeth.
"How long, exactly, have we been in Florida?" Kanda growled, hand on Mugen (you'd think his hand would just stick there after a while).
"Well, probably around four or so days..." Annabeth chuckled nervously, rubbing the back of her head.
"How did you miss that?" Road asked, popping a lollipop that had magically appeared in her hand, into her mouth.
"Why are you all blaming me?!" Annabeth yelled.
"You were supposed to be leading." Nico said.
"I thought that was Percy!" Annabeth cried.
"Do you remember the last time I led? I got us lost (back in Chapter Four)!" Percy huffed.
Annabeth sighed, "Whatever. Now that we know we're here, we need to save Persephone."
"Wait," Lavi said, raising a hand, "I just realized something very important!"
"What?" Tyki asked.
"Hades never told us where in Florida Persephone was being held." Lavi pointed out.
Disney World Part One: Lavi and Kanda:
"Baka Usagi," Kanda hissed, "Why are we here?"
'Here' was standing in front of the Hollywood Tower Hotel on Sunset Boulevard in Walt Disney World.
"Come on Yu! We need to have some fun! We've been working non-stop for so long! We need a break!" Lavi cheered.
"Don't call me that!" Kanda yelled.
"You weren't complaining on the way here!" Lavi pointed put.
"That's because you tied me up, drugged me, and dragged me here against my will!" Kanda growled.
"Lighten up!" Lavi smiled.
"I will not lighten up!" Kanda roared, grabbing Mugen (*sigh* Idiot).
Lavi just ignored the weapon and grabbed Kanda's hand (I ship it!), pulling him towards the Tower of Terror.
"USAGI!" Kanda screamed, but he didn't pull away (Should it actually be a pairing in this story?).
As they walked into the lobby, Lavi was bouncing around like a rabbit on drugs, while Kanda just looked around with a scowl on his face. When they actually got into the ride compartment Kanda still hadn't said a freaking word.
"Come on Yu! Relax!" Lavi said as they sat down.
Kanda still didn't say anything, not even when Lavi called him by his first name.
Lavi shrugged and turned his attention back to the ride. As they encountered the ghostly guests, Lavi felt Kanda tense up beside him. "Don't worry, they're not Akuma, no need to cut their heads off." Lavi whispered, but Kanda didn't relax.
When the ride reached the first drop Lavi felt Kanda tense up even more. When he looked over at the samurai, said man's eyes were squeezed shut, his mouth was a thin line, he was gripping Mugen so tight that his knuckles were white. That's when Lavi realized it, the great, stoic samurai, Yu Kanda, was scared of roller coasters. Lavi's jaw hit the floor.
"What are you gaping at, Baka Usagi?" Kanda choked out in a strained hiss, his eyes squinted open slightly.
"Y-y-y-y-y-y-you..." Lavi stuttered, too shocked to form a coherent sentence.
"Spit it out!" Kanda growled through clenched teeth.
"You're... scared!" Lavi gasped.
"What?! That's ridicu-" Kanda was cut off by another drop. This time, since he didn't have his teeth clenched, he let out a small whimper of fright.
Lavi didn't know whether he should laugh at or comfort the Japanese teen. He went with the latter ad let Kanda grip his hand, though thee Samurai was VERY reluctant and it took a lot of coaxing.
After about three more drops, they got off.
"If you ever speak of that again, I will slice you to bits and cook you in rabbit stew." Kanda growled as they walked into the sunlight.
"Of course Yu!" Lavi said happily, he knew that was just Kanda's way of saying thanks. "So, since you don't like roller coasters, why don't we just go get some food instead!"
"Che." Was Kanda's reply.
Taking that as a 'yes', Lavi grabbed Kanda's hand again and cheerfully skipped down the street with Kanda in tow.
