Note: This songfic, "Night Song" is based upon a song from the North American Pokemon soundtrack (2.B.A. Master). The song is titled "Misty's Song" - however, the talking parts are not in here and apart from the song, there is no other mention of Pokemon. ^_^ It's a Yaten/Kurama fic.


"Out here in the quiet of the night,
Beneath the stars and moon
We both know we've got somethin' on our minds
We won't admit, but it's true

Yaten stood out on the apartment balcony, staring at the stars. It wasn't like he was trying to find Kinmoku - or Healer, for that matter. They were so far away, and Healer was gone.

The door slid open. Soft footsteps came closer, there was no question. It was Kurama.

Chorus:
You look at me, I look away

I wanna tell you what I'm feeling, but I
don't know how to start
I wanna tell you, but now I'm afraid that
you might break my heart
Oh, why should anything so easy, be so hard to do?
I wanna tell you what I'm feeling, and to
say that, I love you

"Daijobu, Yaten?" the redhaired bishounen asked. "Seiya and Taiki said you've been out here for a while."

I practice all the things I could say
Line by line, every word
I tell myself today could be the day
But everytime, I lose my nerve"

"I needed to think." Yaten cringed. Baka! He chided himself. What made you say that?!

I look at you, you look away

I wanna tell you what I'm feeling, but I
don't know how to start
I wanna tell you, but now I'm afraid that
you might break my heart
Oh, why should anything so easy, be so hard to do?
I wanna tell you what I'm feeling, and to
say that, I love you

"Yeah, it's nice and peaceful out here. Look, Yaten..." Kurama paused, fumbled and hesitated. Finally, he spoke. "I had a lot on my mind too." Baka kitsune! A voice seemed to yell. Why don't you tell that senshi how you feel?

He remembered something he had overheard once: when trying to say how you feel about someone, chances are the other's doing the same thing... looking for what to say, both afraid how the other would react.

Kurama finally made his decision and came closer, tapping the Light on a shoulder. Reflexively, Yaten spun around, and he could see a pair of watery green eyes before going to where he had been, facing the rail.

Why, do you turn away
It must be, you're afraid like me
I try, but I can't pretend that I
Don't feel for you the way I do
Can't you see

"Yaten..." Kurama tried, his voice hardly a whisper.

"Kurama, you're part of the Reikai Tantei... you have your job to do, I have mine..." Yaten was crying. Thank God he hadn't transformed back to his original female form, but then Kurama realized that the silver-haired senshi was an empath.

Yaten probably knows that I love her... Kurama sighed.

I wanna tell you what I'm feeling, but I
don't know how to start
I wanna tell you, but now I'm afraid that
you might break my heart
Oh, why should anything so easy, be so hard to do?
I wanna tell you what I'm feeling, and to
say that, I love you

"Kurama...despite that, I- I... I love you..." Yaten said, losing control and going back to girl form. A few tears escaped her. "I just wasn't sure if you felt the same..."

Kurama smiled, drying off her tears. "Crying isn't you, Yaten-chan. I half-expected a Star Senstive Inferno and some wisecracks."

That made her smile. "I could never do that to you - unless you deserved it."

There was a noise, and Yaten's eyes flashed. She ran to the door and shoved it open, causing Seiya and Taiki to spill out to the balcony.

"SEIYA!! TAIKI!!"

The two sweatdropped. "Heh, right when it was getting good... we kinda wanted you two to kiss..." Seiya did a nervous little laugh, than dashed inside for his life.

"YOU SPY!!" yelled Yaten, chasing at his heels with a big pillow. "COME BACK HERE!!!"




I was bored. This shows how mushy I can get... but then again, we're talking my favorite characters here. Hope you liked it! ^_^
