7 Minutes of Heaven
"OMIGOSH! YOU KNOW WHAT WOULD BE SUPER FUNTASTIC?!?" Patty giggled excitedly as everyone turned to look at her. "A SLEEPOVER!!! HAHAHA!"
"Hey, that's a great idea, Patty!" Liz told her.
"It could be fun
," Tsubaki added
"Yeah," Maka suggested, not sure what to think of it.
"OMIGOSH! It would be so much fun if we invited all the boys too!" Patty added, giggling over herself.
"Another great idea!" Liz exclaimed.
"Good idea," Tsubaki added.
"What's the matter, Maka? Scared of playing Truth or Dare?" Liz asked as she nudged her as Patty giggled even louder.
"NO! I'm not scared of a little game!" Maka said, frustrated.
"Alright then. How does Friday night sound?" Liz asked.
"Sounds AMAZINGGGG!" Patty giggled.
"Sure!" Tsubaki said.
Maka huffed again.
"Oh, but wait! "Where are we gonna have it at?" Tsubaki asked.
I dunno," Liz though.
"BlackStar and my place is a bit small. I don't think it's a good idea," Tsubaki said.
I don't think Lord Death would like all those kids over his house
or Kid for that matter
We might mess something up
Why not your place, Maka?" Liz asked.
"WHAT? Why?!?" Maka yelped.
"Why not?" Patty giggled, barely paying attention.
" Maka stuttered.
"What? Did you have something special planned for Soul that night?" Liz asked, eyeing Maka.
"NO OF COURSE NOT!" Maka blasted, her face flaring red.
"Well then! It's settled. It'll be at Maka's place. Let's tell everyone after school today," Liz suggested.
"Alright then," Tsubaki said with a smile. Then they all continued to eat their lunches and Maka ate her's angrily.
"Hey, Soul," Maka called as she sat on her bed.
"Yeah?" he answered from the living room.
"Everyone's coming over on Friday for a sleepover," she yelled to him.
"What? Serious?" he asked, surprised.
"Sadly, yes," she answered.
"Whatever," he said coolly.
Everyone made their way into Maka and Soul's apartment, making themselves at home as the sky started to turn dark and the small room grew quite loud. Once everyone was settled
they all decided on what activity they should do.
"Truth or dare! Truth or dare!" Patty giggled and all the girls agreed.
"Ugh man! That's such a girl game!" BlackStar complained.
"No it's not! No it's not!" Patty giggled.
"I'll go first!" Tsubaki said. "Maka, truth or dare?" she questioned Maka.
"Truth," she said and everyone groaned.
"Chicken!" BlackStar yelled.
"Shut up!" she yelled back.
"Okay, is it true
you like Soul?" she asked, raising an eyebrow.
"Of course I like him, he's my partner," she said blowing the question off. Everyone sighed. Soul looked away.
"BlackStar, truth or dare?"
"I dare you to go run around outside with only your underwear on," Maka told him, tasting revenge.
"FINE! I, THE GREAT, BLACKSTAR, WILL CONQUER THIS DARE! Oh, and just so you guys know, I HATE YOU ALL!" BlackStar yelled a blood curtling scream. Everyone laughed as he actually did it.
"Kid, truth or dare?"
I'm a symmetrical man, aren't I?" Kid said, a smile shining on his face.
"I dare you to turn one of your pant pockets inside out!" BlackStar yelled at him.
"NONONONONONONO!" Kid screeched. Everyone held him down and turned out one of his pockets, making him unsymmetrical.
"I DESERVE TO DIEEEEE!" Kid cried. Through his tears he managed to dare Tsubaki to eat a piece of toilet paper. Then Tsubaki dared Patty to drink ketchup. Then Patty dared Liz to flash someone through the apartment window. Then it was Liz's turn to ask Soul.
"Soul, truth or dare?" Liz asked.
"Truth." Everyone groaned again.
"Is it true you like Maka?"
"Of course I like her, she's my partner," he said, imitating what Maka said earlier. Maka gave him an evil glare.
After a few more rounds of Truth or Dare they decided to play a different game: Seven Minutes of Heaven. Tsubaki took six tooth picks and broke two of them in half, putting them all in her hand so they all looked the same length. Everyone drew a toothpick. The results were Soul and Maka. Everyone shoved them into their closet and locked the door with the lights off.
Soul's not even my boyfriend
I doubt he even likes me and my tiny boobs
There's no way
He's too cool for me
They tried to give each other space, but it was no use. They had shoved Maka in the closet first. She had still been facing out when they shoved Soul as he faced towards the closet; forcing them to be pinned against each other; face-to face, chest-to-chest, body-to-body.
Both their bodies were tense and neither of them spoke, not sure what to say. Maka couldn't help but take in his scent. He smelled so good. She felt his chest go up and down against hers and listened to his heartbeat. The only other thing audible was their slow breathing in the dark, crammed room.
They both waited for what seemed like definitely more than 7 minutes when they realized they weren't opening the door. Maka rested her face against Soul's chest.
"They aren't gonna open it
?" she asked, though it was more of a statement.
I don't mind though
" Soul spoke softly. Maka shrank back as much as she could, which was barely nothing at all. She felt her whole body go hot and her heart race even faster than it already was. Her throat tightened and her stomach churned.
What do you mean?" she dared to asked, her voice a whisper. Soul took this opportunity. He had been waiting for so long, but had long since grown tired of ignoring his own feelings. He slowly wrapped his arms around her waist and pulled her towards him.
"I like you, Maka
I'm tired of being stupid and patient," he spoke into her ear. Maka felt her eyes begin to burn. She gently folded her arms around Soul's neck.
I like you, too," she mumbled as they both shrank down to the floor, sitting in each other's embrace uncomfortably. Maka curled her face into his shoulder blade and relaxed the slightest bit.
Is this 7 Minutes of Heaven?" Soul asked, trying to break a little joke.
"Definitely more than 7," Maka answered, snuggling closer to Soul as he held her tighter.
Maka looked up at where Soul's face should have been, since she couldn't tell in the dark. Through the darkness she could feel him looking back at her with his deep red eyes. She felt their faces get closer. They hesitated. The vibe in the room was intense, but their longings were even more powerful. Soul pressed his lips to Maka's gently, passionately kissing her. The rest on the night lulled along and the two, now more than partners, spent the rest of the night in the dark, small closet.
Once it was finally morning it was BlackStar who opened the closet door.
"So, how was it, Soul?" BlackStar asked, a huge grin on his face.
"MAKA-CHOP!" Maka screamed as he chopped BlackStar into the next dimension. Maka headed to her room, passing Tsubaki as she did and smiled slightly at her. Tsubaki smiled back and let out the slightest laugh.
