Code Lyoko Fan Fiction / Crossover Fan Fiction / Sailor Moon Fan Fiction ❯ I Don't Dance ( Chapter 8 )

[ P - Pre-Teen ]
That evening, everyone headed back to the park, dressed up for the dance.

« Just stay by us, Rini, and don’t go running off. » Amy told her.

« I won’t. » Rini said.

As soon as they got there, it was totally crowded. « Whoa, there are so many people here. » Serena said.

« You should be used to it by now. » Raye said.

« Hey, don’t you two start fighting again. » Lita said.

« Yeah, you’re setting a bad example for Rini. » Yumi pointed out.

« Thanks, Yumi. »

Aelita noticed that Jeremy wasn’t with the others. « Has anyone seen Jeremy? » She asked.

« He was with us a minute ago. » Yumi said.

« Maybe he had to use the bathroom. » Odd said.

« I’m sure he’ll be back soon, Aelita. » Darien reassured her. « Serena, would you care to dance? »

« Sure. » As the music started, she accidentally stepped on his foot. « Oh, sorry! I’m not a very good dancer. »

« Just follow my lead and remember what Amara taught you. »

« May I have this dance? » Ulrick asked Yumi.

« It would be my honor. » Yumi said. Aelita tried calling Jeremy’s mobile, but she got no answer.

« Guys, I’m going to look for Jeremy. He’s not answering his mobile. » She told the others. « I’ll be back soon. »

« I wonder what that was about? » Amy said.

« Amy, you’re the smartest of us girls. » Lita said. « You should be able to know. »

Aelita found Jeremy sitting outside the park’s entrance. « Jeremy, we were looking for you. Everyone is wondering where you disappeared to. »

« Well, you found me. » Jeremy said.

« Why aren’t you at the dance with the others? » Aelita asked.

« Aelita, can you please not tell the rest of them? »

« Tell the rest of them what? »

« That I can’t dance. »

« Excuse me. » Aelita said. She was trying not to laugh. « You can’t dance? Jeremy, not everyone can dance. »

« I know, I’m so lame. » Jeremy said.

« No, your not. » Aelita said. « I can’t dance either. Well, I can, but not very well. Yumi tried to teach me once, but I tripped over my feet and landed on top of her. »

« Did you make that up just to make me feel better? »

« No, it’s the truth. » Aelita sighed. « I’m only good at making music, but I can’t dance to it. But still, we decided to come here to spend more time with our friends. »

« I suppose we should get back. » He noticed Aelita was looking up at the sky. « Are you okay? »

« I’m fine, Jeremy. » Aelita said. She smiled. « We could sign up for dance lessons at the school. »

« True. »

« The only real reason I came to the dance was so that I could spend some time with you. »

« I know. »

« It’s okay if you can’t dance, Jeremy. We all like you just the way you are. » Aelita was blushing.

« I’m glad to hear that, Aelita. »

« Good, cause for a second I thought you were skipping out because of me. » Aelita told him.

« I’d never do that. » Jeremy pointed out. « I could never forget about you. »

Aelita turned so that she was facing Jeremy. Then she leaned in and kissed him.

« We’d better head back before they send a search party after us. » Jeremy said.

« Yeah, I don’t want them to think I disappeared too. »

« I wonder where Aelita is. She’s been gone a long time. » Mina said.

« Yeah, do you think she’s still looking for Jeremy? » Raye asked.

« I wish we had some idea as to where they were. » Serena told them.

« Hey, Aelita! » Rini waved. Everyone turned to see Aelita and Jeremy.

« She found Jeremy. » Odd said.

« Hey, guys. » Aelita said.

« We’re glad to see you made it back. »

« Is everything okay? » Yumi asked.

« Yeah, everything’s cool. »

« Hi, Raye. » A guy showed up.

« Chad? I thought you were spending the night at the temple. » Raye said.

« I didn’t want you to get lonely out here, but now I see you have such a big group. » Chad noticed everyone.

« Actually, that girl dressed in black is Mina’s penpal and those other four are her friends. » Raye explained. « That little girl is Serena’s sister, Rini. »

« It’s nice to meet everyone. I’m Chad, and I work at Raye’s temple. »

« Nice to meet you to. » Yumi said.

« Aelita, I’m glad you were able to find Jeremy. » Rini said. « We were starting to think you disappeared, too. »

« It’s okay, Rini. » Aelita said. « I’ve been through situations that have been a lot worse. »

« I can tell. » Rini said. She turned to Serena.

« I think we should be getting back soon. » Amy said. « We don’t want Rini out past her curfew and we’ll all get in trouble if our parents or guardians discover we’re out really late. »

« I’ll walk you home, Raye. » Chad offered.

« Thanks, Chad. »

« Hey, Serena. » Darien said. « Want me to take you and Rini home? »

« Sure, I want to make sure that Rini gets home okay. » Serena said.

« So do I, but I don’t feel like carrying her the whole way back. » Serena looked and noticed that Rini was sleeping.

« Well, let’s get our future princess home. »

« Okay, Team Lyoko, let’s head over to my place. » Mina said
