Crona’s knees shook and his face was burning red as he stared at Kid. He clutched the blanket all the way up to his chin so Kid could see nothing more of his bare body. Kid dropped the clothes he had brought for Crona in his state of shock. He stood there for no more than a few seconds before quickly pulled back out of the room and slamming the door shut. He leaned back against the door and rubbed his face with his hand. What do I do?! What do I do?! Should I go back in there and apologize? No, no, no, I can’t do that! I can’t just plunge right back in there! I need to give him his space. I need space! Ahh, but his backside, such perfect symmetry! The back of his neck, his shoulder blades, his back, all the way down to his-! Whoa, whoa, whoa! Stop that!
Kid shook his head to clear it then walked back to his room.
Crona waited until after he heard Kid’s door close before he moved; he walked over to the door and picked up the clothes that Kid had dropped in the room. He moved slowly back over to the bed and dropped the sheet, pulling on the change of clothes. He climbed into bed and curled up in a ball, his knees hugged to his chest. Ragunarok appeared over his shoulder. “Well that must have been embarrassing. He saw your ass, Crona!”
“Leave me alone…”
“He’s probably never gonna talk to you again!”
“Did you see the look on his face? He probably had to go throw up!”
“Shut up!” Crona squeezed his eyes shut tight and put his hands over his ears.
“Who do you think you’re telling to shut up?!” Ragunarok punched his head.
Crona squeezed his eyes closed tighter. He curled in on himself more and tried to block out the pain. It wasn’t the pain of Ragunarok’s punches or the pain of his verbal abuse; it was the pain of knowing that Kid could very well never talk to him again. He might not even want to look at him. Crona pulled the covers up over his head and tried to sleep. He would never know what would happen until tomorrow, and sleeping was the fastest way to bring morning.
Kid woke up to the sound of his alarm. He hit the off button then sat up and stretched. He looked at the door then took a deep breath; he had to wake Crona up. He was worried about how Crona would react to him, but he couldn’t just avoid him. Kid stood, walked from his room and across the hall. He knocked on the door lightly. “Crona. Crona, its time to get up and get ready. We have school in an hour.” He waited for an answer, but got none. “Crona? Crona, are you awake?” Kid opened the door and peered into the room. “Crona?” When he didn’t see anyone he stepped inside and looked around. He walked around the room, but couldn’t find Crona anywhere. “Where is he?” Kid went around his home looking for Crona. After not being able to find him anywhere, he assumed that he must have left already; seeing the slightly ajar front gate as he looked out the window verified his assumption. He was slightly disappointed, but he didn’t blame Crona for leaving.
“Kiiiiiiiid!” Patty ran over to him. “Are you ready for school?”
“Huh? We still have an hour.”
“Nuh uh, it’s time to go.”
Kid looked at a clock that hung on the wall and noticed that he’d used up all his time looking for Crona. He sighed heavily and walked to the front gates. “Well, let’s go so we aren’t late.”
“Umm, Kid, you’re still in your pajamas.”
Kid looked back at Liz then down at himself. “Damn it.” He turned around and walked back inside.
After Crona had arrived at the DWMA and dropped his things off at his room, he gathered his books and went into Professor Stein’s classroom. He kept his head down as he walked and hugged his books to his chest. The feeling of embarrassment and a slight hint of guilt were still burning through him. Crona took his seat then set his things down. He was nervous about seeing Kid today, but there was no way around it. He just had to try and act calm so he wouldn’t attract any attention to himself; thinking this made him sink lower into his seat. “I wish I could disappear…”
“Why, Crona?” Maka sat down beside him.
Crona jumped from surprise. “O-Oh, Maka…You scared me…”
“I’m sorry, Crona. Hey, are you okay? You seem kind of jumpy.”
“Y-Yes! I’m perfectly f-fine!” Crona smiled and laughed nervously.
Ragunarok materialized above Crona’s head. “Like hell he is! He’s been freaking out all night! I barely got any sleep! It probably has something to do with the fact that Kid sa-”
Crona suddenly stood up and pointed towards the window. “Wow, look at the beautiful sunlight that’s streaming in! I’m going to have a look.” He walked out into the aisle then went up the steps to the windows. “What are you doing, Ragunarok?!” Crona spoke in a hushed voice, “You can’t tell anyone about what happened.”
“Why shouldn’t I tell anyone? It’s funny.”
“It’s not funny, it’s embarrassing!”
“This is exactly why it’s funny.”
“Well then laugh to yourself.” Crona walked back over to his seat and sat down.
“I’m fine.” Crona stared ahead so he wouldn’t have to look her in the eyes.
Kid walked into the school and headed for Professor Stein’s classroom. “Kid, are you okay? You’ve been acting kind of out of it today.”
Kid nodded his head. “Perfectly fine.”
“That didn’t sound very convincing.”
“I can assure you I’m fine, Liz.” The three of them went into the classroom. When Kid’s eyes found Crona he lowered his head and hurried to sit down on the other side of the room. Crona ducked his head and buried his face in his arms. Kid sat down in a seat on the far side of the room.
“Wait, Kid. We told Maka that we’d sit by her today.”
“You two go on head. I’ll stay over here.”
Liz and Patty shrugged and when up to sit by Maka. “Morning, Maka, Crona.”
“Good morning, Liz. Good morning, Patty.” Maka smiled and waved.
“I think I’ll go sit over there.” Crona got up and walked over to the far side of the room. He and Kid were on opposite sides of the room, as far away from each other as they could get.
“Crona, wait!” Maka frowned when he left.
Liz looked at her. “Is Crona acting strange today too?”
“You mean stranger?”
Liz shook her head at Patty. Maka nodded to Liz. “Yea. Why?”
“So is Kid. Do you think something happened?”
“Like what? They were fine at the party.” Maka tugged at her gloves.
“Well, Kid let Crona stay at the house last night.”
“He did?” Maka looked over at Kid then at Crona. “Something could have happened, but what?”
“I don’t know.”
“Well, as their friends it’s our job to find out what!”
“You’re right! We will not let this go until we find out what happened and make them friends again!” Maka, Liz, and Patty had officially decided to make it their duty to help Crona and Kid maintain their friendship.
