After they had finished eating, Kari seemed
to have regained some of her good mood, and T.K. had finally become coherent
"I'll just call my mom to let her know where I am," T.K. said as they
were cleaning up. When she wasn't home, he called her cell phone.
"Oh, T.K., honey, I'm so sorry but I won't be making it home until
really late tonight, do you think you'll be ok? Maybe you should go
and stay at your dad's.
"I would Mom, except that Dad's out of town with Matt, hold on a second,"
cupping the phone he turned to Kari with a mischevious smirk, "Do you think
it would be ok for me to spend the night? My mom's worried that she
won't be able to make it home tonight."
Kari turned to her mom, mouthing no
, but she either didn't
see her, or pointedly ignored her and nodded and said that he could sleep
in Tai's room.
"Hey Mom, Kari's mom said that I could stay here."
"Oh! That's good. Now you behave alright?
"Yes mom," he replied rolling his eyes, hanging up a short time later.
"Thanks, Mrs. Kamiya."
"That's ok, T.K., I wouldn't want for you to have to spend all night alone,"
she answered with a smile. For some reason, that made Kari blush.
"Well we have homework to do, don't we T.K.?" she turned on him with a
"Uh--yeah, that's right, homework, let's go do our homework," he replied
with a bit of a stutter. Kari practically dragged T.K. to her room.
Once inside she turned on him.
"Do you realize what's gonna happen when Davis hears about this!?" she
hissed at him.
"Yup," he smirked.
Kari couldn't help herself, the giggles just seemed to come bubbling up.
Soon they were both on the ground gasping for air, laughing harder than they
could imagine possible, and neither having even the slightest idea why.
When they finally stopped, the just sat there and stared at each other.
"So..." Kari started.
"So..." T.K. answered.
"What do you feel like doing?" she asked.
"I don't know, how about playing a game?"
Kari's eyes lit up, "Let's play Dare!!"
"Oh no you don't!!! Do you realize how much trouble you got me into
last time with that--"
"I dare you to kiss me," she cut him off.
T.K.'s eyes widened further than Kari thought possible, then he answered
with a grin, "Well in that case--"
But just as their lips touched they heard a knock on the door. They
both jumped to opposite sides of the room.
"Co--Come in?" Kari stuttered out.
"So how's the homework going?" Tai asked sarcastically.
"Shut up, Tai," Kari retorted blushing.
"Oh?" he asked with a raised eyebrow, "now why would you be blushing, Kari?
You never blush," he continued with a growing smirk. "Well I'll just
go now, I think I hear my d-terminal beeping, it must be Davis writing back.
I wonder what he has to say--"
"You didn't!?" Kari's eyes widened. T.K. had already snuck out of
the room and returned with the beeping d-terminal.
"He did," T.K. answered after he read the message from Davis.
Kari ripped the d-terminal out of his hands. "Oh Tai," she moaned,
"Davis is gonna kill himself tonight!"
"No he won't," Tai replied, "I told him T.K. would stay on his side of
"Tai!!" they both exclaimed blushing madly.
"Relax," he said with a chuckle, "I'm just kidding," he called beating
a hasty retreat as Kari threw a pillow at him.
"Now where were we?" asked T.K. with a wolfish grin after Kari had closed
the door behind Tai.
"Kari, your knees are jabbing into my ribs."
"Hmghph??" came a sleepy reply.
"Kari," T.K. tried again, pushing her knees down. Suddenly uncurled
from the little ball she had been in, Kari startled awake and drew her knees
up quickly. T.K. let out a groan and curled into a ball himself. Realizing
what had happened, Kari apologized profusely.
"Don't worry about it," he gasped out, "it's you who won't be having children
"Don't you think you're jumping the gun a little?" she asked.
He grinned, "Not according to what the school's gonna think when they hear
about this, and believe me, knowing Tai, they'll definately hear about this."
"Look, I really think they'll understand, it's not our fault that Tai blew
a fuse and we've had no power for 6 hours. It's cold in here!!
And we couldn't expect you and Tai to curl up together, now could we?
And we're not mean enough to make you sleep on the floor. Besides,
you'd think that having about 8 blankets between us would be enough."
"Not for your pointy little knees."
"Oh, will you two shut up and go back to sleep already," Tai grumbled from
Kari's other side. The three of them were all sleeping on the queen
sized sofa bed with about a bazillion blankets, trying to keep warm.
It was so cold in the house that you could see your breath in front of your
"Sorry," they replied together.
"If you're gonna curl up in a ball like that, you could at least face the
other way," T.K. whispered.
"Oh, all right," Kari muttered, rolling over and going back to sleep.
Morning held an interesting sight for Tai when he woke
up. Sometime after they had gone back to sleep, T.K. and Kari had curled
up together and T.K. had his arms around her.
"I'll bet they aren't cold anymore," Tai muttered under his breath.
He picked up his d-terminal and began typing with a huge grin on his face.
"Hey T.K.! It's about time, man!"
"Way to go, Kari!"
"I always knew you two were meant for each other!"
"T.K. I'm gonna kill you!!"
All day the twosome had been greeted by high fives and huge grins.
The last comment, however, had come, surprisingly not from Davis, but from
his brother, Matt.
"Matt?!?" T.K. asked, shocked.
"What the hell to you think you're doing?!?"
"Relax Matt," Kari said soothingly, "everything's just been blown out of
proportion. Nothing happened."
"We are going out now, though" T.K. finished.
Matt's face relaxed. "Oh, well then, congratulations. But if
I hear that you--"
"Matt!" T.K. exclaimed blushing.
"Well, you know what I mean," he called, leaving the school. After
he was gone, Kari turned to T.K.
"Boy, I was expection rumours, and I have to admit, it's kinda funny.
But I'm kinda curious about what went around on those d-terminals."
"Don't worry about it, Kari. That's what happens when people get
They both shared a snicker at that.
So whadaya think?!? It's my first attempt at something somewhat humourous...let
me know if I should go back to being depressing...::grin::
