Kaho by Kira

Toya met Kaho after school at the Tsukimine shrine. It was a special place for both of them, as that was the place they first met. Toya wandered around wishing she would hurry up and get here. He was dying to spend some time with her again. He loved every minute he spent with her, especially all the things she had taught him. Finally he spotted her heading his way. As she came closer she waved at him and before she knew it, he engulfed her in his arms. She smiled up at him shivering from the tiny kisses he planted on her neck. But taking a deep breath she cleared her mind and focused on what she had to tell him.

"Hey Peachikins, When you come up for air I have something important to tell you."

"Can it wait?", Toya asked between kisses.

"No it can't wait.",she said as she pushed away from him. She felt her heart break at the hurt look in his eyes, but she knew she had to tell him. "He's getting way too distracted by you girlfriend.",she thought.

"Look Toya, Peachikins, this is going to be easy for me,but I have to go back to England. Please let me finish!", she said as she placed her hand on his heart. Toya took her hand in his own and kissed it.

"Go on.", He said softly.

Kaho looked at him long and hard for several minutes unable to go on. She wanted nothing more than to stay here with him. She thought to herself,"He is no longer a boy, but a man and more of a man than waits back home for me. Oh Clow how could ever let you talk me into this. Poor thing he's going to be hurt and I hope he doesn't end up like Yueh, always longing for something he can't have." She took a deep breath and went on, unaware that her tears mirrored Toya's
"Look Toya, there is someone you haven't met yet that will be there for you the way that I can't. I really have to go and as much as I would love to take you with me, both you and I know that's not possible."

"It's someone else isn't it?! I knew it! Who is he! If he was so special why'd you waste your time with me?!" Toya tried to cover up his hurt and confusion by getting angry with her. But he wasn't really succeeding , as all he wanted to do was hold her and kiss her and do to her all the things they used to do together. He thought she wanted to do them as well but something was stopping her and holding her back. He only half heard what she was saying. All he could think of was he really wanted to do something to get this other guy out of the way, to make her forget him, to make her want only him.

"...moon... Toya? Are you listening to me? Please Toya, pay attention. Like I said there is someone who'll be just as magical to you as I am, I was... to you. When you look at the moon at night you'll feel the same way about them that you do about me. Please Toya, if you love me the way you say you do, then don't make this hard for me. I really don't want to leave you like this but it's important that I go. Peachikins don't cry. Please... I promise I'll come back when the time is right. I can't promise you that things will be the same as they were before, but I will come back. And I want you to tell me if everything I told you has come true, or if I was wrong. Okay? Please kiss me one more time, Toya?"

Kaho took his face in her hands and gently wiped his tears with her fingers. Then she reached around his head and pulled his face next to hers. Before she knew it he was kissing her long and hard. "He really wants me to stay.",she thought. "but you know I can't." She kissed him just as hard right back. Before it could lead to something else she broke away. Giving him one last look she turned and walked away....
