Cye & Karyn

The sweetest of all couples.

How they first met.

A young teenage boy walked down the edge of the beach, when he came across a girl his age crying. He walked over to her, and touched her shoulder. "Are you okay?" he asked.

The girl looked up, and wiped away some of her tears. "I'm fine. Who are you?"

"My name's Cye. Cye Mouri. What about you?"

"Karyn Nishi." She looked at Cye as he sat next to her. "Why are you here?" she asked.

Cye looked at her long blonde hair, and shrugged. "I always come out here and walk along the beach. The most beautiful sunsets in the world take place right here." He looked across the water, and smiled. "It's also a great place to go swimming." Cye looked at Karyn as she hugged herself. "Why are you here?" he asked.

Karyn looked at Cye, and sighed. "My now ex-boyfriend and I got into a big blow up fight. I don't even remember what it was all about. And this is one of the most peaceful places around. I feel safe here, you know?"

Cye looked into Karyn's grey eyes. "Grey eyes, long blonde hair. God, she's beautiful," he thought. "Yeah, I know exactly what you mean."

Karyn smiled as she brushed some sand off of Cye's shoulder. "Playing in the sand?" she asked. "He's cute. Wait a second, what am I saying? I don't even know him. But there's something about him. He seems so innocent, and trusting," she thought as Cye explained how he was playing with a group of small children. "You said that the most beautiful sunset in the world, right?" Karyn asked changing the subject. She looked up, and saw Cye nodding at her. "Would you mind if we watched one together?"

"I don't mind at all," Cye smiled.

As the sky turned dark, Karyn watched the sun set, and Cye watched her. "What am I thinking? She would never like a guy like me," Cye thought.

Karyn looked at Cye, and stood. "I better get going. My father gets worried when I'm out late, and it's my night to cook. And tonight we have students staying over."

Cye jumped to his feet as she dusted the sand off of her legs and shorts. "I can help. I mean, if you want me to." Cye began to blush. "Cooking is sort of a hobby of mine. And I really know my way around a kitchen."

Karyn smiled. "Thank you. You're really sweet, Cye. But I can't. It's not a good idea to bring home a stranger to help with the cooking. My father would flip out. I hope you're not offended." Karyn looked into Cye's huge sea-blue eyes, and smiled. "A puppy. His eyes are like the ones you find on a heartbroken puppy. He's too cute. I have to get to know him better,"she thought. "But you know, my house isn't that far from here. Would you mind walking me home?"

Cye smiled as he held out his arm for her. "I would love to," he smiled.

On their way to Karyn's house, she and Cye talked about as much as they could in ten minutes.

Finally, they reached a big hill. At the top, there was a house almost as big as the hill itself. "Well, this is my house," Karyn sighed. She looked up, and saw a shooting star. "Quick, make a wish," she whispered as she closed her eyes.

Cye looked at Karyn, and smiled. He then realized her arms were around his waist, and began to slightly blush. "I already made mine," he said shyly.

Karyn opened her eyes, and looked at Cye. "Did it come true?" she asked.

"I don't know yet. It was a wish for the future."

Karyn smiled.

"Hey, Ren," a voice called from the house.

Karyn looked at a boy standing at the gate of her house, and waved. By his dark blue hair, Karyn knew exactly who it was. "That's one of the boys spending the weekend here. His name's Rowen." She then looked at Cye. "Can you help me with my wish?" she asked.

"What is it?"

"I want to see you again."

Cye smiled at the thought. "How about tomorrow, the same time and place?" Cye looked up at the house, and saw a blonde haired boy walk over to Rowen. "You better get going."

"See you tomorrow." Karyn smiled at she jumped up, and kissed Cye on his cheek. "Bye," she called as she ran up the hill.

Cye felt his face turn bright red as he waved to her in shock. "She kissed me. I don't believe that she actually kissed me. And she even likes me too. I know that this may be foolish, but I think I may be in love." Cye turned, and began to walk in the direction of his own house.

There's no doubt about it,

Cye's in love.

But all isn't as cut and dry with Karyn

as they first seem.
