Spoiler:
Nanoha's POV

It was going to be the same as any of her other birthdays but I decided to steel myself and confess my true feelings for her. Yes, I decided to make her sixteenth birthday her sweetest literally and emotionally.

---------

My sleep was disturbed by my regular twelve-in-the-midnight alarm on this day. I always make it a habit to greet her first before anyone else.

Today was the day she first called me my name and the day we first exchanged ribbons, today was the day that she first embraced me, today was the day her she made her first friend, yes, today was the day that marked her new beginning.

It's kind of silly... even though Hayate-chan and the rest helped me prepare for today my heart still beats like a drum whenever I think of what I'm about to do.

Morning came to me in a flash and once again my sleep was disturbed by my alarm. I tried to turn it off but I just fell on my bed instead of doing so.

"Nanoha! Breakfast is ready!" Mom called.

"Hai..." I replied weakly.

I immediately put on my school uniform and headed downstairs noisily. I took a seat on the dinner table and examined the breakfast prepared for me.

"Where's Tou-san, Nee-chan, and Onii-chan?" I asked.

"Morning training." She replied.

"I see." I said while taking a bite on my egg roll.

After breakfast I checked one of my first many gifts for today: Cake, and letter. Check and check... now... for the rest: Flowers, letter, and cookies. Check, check, and check... round three is her bento for today! A big check mark for that... And for the last batch: Cupcake, letter, and ribbon. Check, check and check again. All right I should be ready for today.

"Itekimasu!" I announced.

"Itterashai!" Came the reply from mom.

I immediately rushed for school seeing that it's already this late and Fate might get to school earlier than usual. The trip to school lasted a good five minutes thanks to my running... but in exchange I ran out of breath.

"Huff... Huff..."

"Ohayoo Nanoha-chan!" A voice said from behind.

I immediately jumped because I thought it was Fate.

"Oh... it's you Hayate..." I sighed.

"Did I scare you?" She giggled.

"Three years out of my life in fact." I supported.

"I'll be looking forward to the fruits of your endeavors today!" She said while grinning evilly.

Sometimes I just don't know which side she's on... Oh wait... I have to look for her locker... Hm... Ah! Here we are... Locker number 354.

I placed the cake and letter inside and immediately headed for her classroom. It's both a blessing and a curse that she isn't my classmate... but it's mostly a curse to me...

I open the door and ask, "Ah... pardon the intrusion but do you know where Fate T. Harlaown-san's table is?"

The all pointed to the desk in the the corner near the windows. "Ah... thank you."

I immediately put the flowers, the letter and the cookies and place. And headed off to my classroom to settle down.

I immediately talked to Hayate-chan who already settled down on her desk and is talking with Arisa and Suzuka. "Are you guys ready?" I asked.

"Yep!" They chorused.

"All right... now here is round three... remember to give it out in lunch all right?" I warned, slowly handing them the bento.

"Hai, hai. You're so giddy today..." Arisa sighed.

Hayate giggled. "Maybe it's because of you know what?"

"Maybe." Suzuka said.

"Mou... you guys... you're supposed to help me out here!" I pouted.

Sometimes I wonder if these three will ever get tired of teasing me...

Homeroom started soon after that making Arisa go back to her classroom, which is the same one as Fate's, sometimes it makes me mad at how lucky Arisa-chan is! Why can't I be in the same class as Fate's?

I didn't realize I was already doodling on my notebook blindly... and the drawing looks like Fate... except she has... dog ears?! HOW CUTE!

"Takamachi-san would you like to share what exactly it is you are squealing about?" Sigurd-sensei asked.

I stood and gave a bow. "I'm sorry..."

Hayate and Suzuka couldn't help but giggle along with the rest of my classmates... I want to run and hide under a rock...

The rest of the day dragged on normally... although for me it was spent on the thought: "Will she like my gifts?" Lunch came soon enough... we were supposed to have lunch together today but Sigurd-sensei asked me to bring some materials to a class she was going to be in... as punishment for squealing in class...

Why did the class she had to be in be on the other side of the building? Kami-sama please help me get this done on time...

Well... Kami-sama didn't help at all... I got back at the classroom with just enough time to eat on my own... I opened my bento and ate quietly today... but the thought of "Will she like my gifts?" Still remained...

Five minutes before the bell rang Hayate and Suzuka came in. I was eager to ask them on Fate's reaction to the gifts.

"Well? How did it go?" I asked.

"She said: Thanks for the meal." Hayate replied cheerily.

"And that she agrees on meeting on the bridge after school today." Suzuka continued.

Whatever my expression was it was funny to the both of them... they were grinning like idiots. "Ok. So maybe you would like to tell me more?" I threatened.

They both gulped. "Er... no! We just thought your expression looks kind of... funny..."

They continued grinning like idiots until the bell rang. I sat down on my chair... kind of depressed because I just know Fate-chan said something else! Or maybe that's just me...

Ahah well... we'll be walking to the bridge together like planned...

---------------

The rest of the day just dragged on with my heart beating like it was about to explode the more time passed... I wonder if I'm going to live through this... moreover... I wonder how she'll react to my feelings... it is wierd for me to like another girl...

I'd rather want to know what she has to say... than not know at all...

"Nanoha?" A familiar voice asked.

"Eh...?" I asked sleepily.

"Come on you sleepyhead! You are gonna miss your walk with Fate-chan!" Arisa said.

"A-Arisa?"

"We were dismissed ten minutes ago... you slept through half of math..." Hayate explained.

"Oh! I have to catch up with Fate! I'll see you guys!" I said while getting my stuff.

...Before I do that... Cupcake, letter, and ribbon... check, check, and check! All right...

I rushed to the lockers changing my shoes and headed for the gate where Fate was waiting for me. "Sorry for the wait!"

She smiled beautifully and replied, "It's fine. I wasn't waiting that long anyway."

"Happy birthday to you Fate-chan!" I greeted happily.

"Thank you. So why are you bringing me to the bridge?" She asked.

I smiled and said, "It's a surprise... but hmm... maybe a cupcake for the road?"

She pouted. "Are you trying to make me fat?"

I giggled. "You never get fat no matter how many sweets I feed you."

Her face turned red. "I... guess... so..."

How cute...

The rest of the way was filled with chatter on how our days went... like the usual but the rest of my brain was still processing on how I should give the ribbon and the letter... I wish confessing was easier to do...

And we finally arrived... all the planning I had just vanished when we arrived here.

"Fate-chan." I called.

"Hai?" She responded.

"I-I-I-Iloveyou!" I blurted out, holding the letter and ribbon out.

Oh this so going to end in failure...

She accepted the ribbon and letter, gently holding the ribbon, and slowly opening the letter. She began reading it out loud:

Well... this is awkward... by the time you read this I probably would have blurted out the three words that I want to say to you but just in case you didn't catch it I said: I love you. -- Nanoha

"Will you go out with me?" I asked, proud that I didn't stutter.

She began crying... oh no... what do I do...? Erm... a hanky should do the trick...

I slowly handed out the hanky to her. "Don't cry... you know how it hurts to see friends cry..."

"Sorry Nanoha... it's just..." She tried to explain.

"Shh... now... I want my answer but... that can wait."

Out of the blue she grabbed me and our lips met. "Does that answer your question?" She asked.

To say the least: I was shocked.

"It does." I replied.

I closed in for another kiss, this time a bit longer, and more feelings being conveyed in this action.

"I love you too. This is the best birthday yet." She said.

"I wanted you to be the first to know that I have always and forever will be in love with you." I replied.

HAH! Well... I was so touched by what I was writing at the moment I just had to vent this extra sugar o.e I hope it's a good read... xD and I hope it's pretty good for post number 69 XD

I gotta agree with all the others here. :3 That was a really nice story, thanks for sharing! You've brightened my... rather dreary day here. It's been raining Arfs and Yuunos where I am for the whole day. Thanks again!

Dreams do come true! 8D

( ì x î ) I feel sorry for that little girl. Lol

:O A praise from the great Yuki! (I call you great because I really like what you put on here and you are one of my favorite authors :3) I'm glad that I brightened your day! :)

*faints*

*raises torso* Thank you! :3

*faints again*

PS: Raining Arfs and Yuunos... I wonder what would happen if that happen to me...

Mother: Let's go to the zoo to see the ferrets!
Me: *barfs* Ugh... no thanks mom...
Mother: Are you ok? You look like you've been seeing nothing but ferrets--oops
Me: *continues to barf* Thanks alot... -.-"

Well I'm glad that you like what I do, and because of that I gotta keep getting better so I can live up to those high words of praise. :3 But I was being honest when I said I really enjoyed it. I don't read fanfiction very often, so when I saw you posted something I immediately read it. And boy was I glad I did. It was really cute and really made my day a bit better. :P The rain stopped~

---

It was actually a mix of rain and hail... <__< The rain being Yuuno and the hail being Arf. -_-; I just hope my car didn't get damaged... ;.; Last year there was this MASSIVE piece of hail that smashed through the wind-shield! .___.;

Oh boy... I sure hope that Arf didn't damage your car... If I owned one I'd cry because it was PERFECTLY normal for it to get damaged/destroyed like that ^^;;

D'aww... you're make me blush... >////< I'm really glad to have brightened your day by even a little bit :3

.__.; I'm waiting for the day my wife throws our dog at the car just to make that statement real... she'll do it, I just don't know when.

I'll tell my wife to read it when she has the time. She likes reading these fluffy kind of stories... probably why I don't write too many of them. Lol Hey~ great idea just now, why don't we do a small collaboration some time? ;] Your fluffy genius, my crack team of idiots, and of course my A.D.D powered imagination would make for an epik lulz story.\

Baahh gotta get back to work. >: I'll talk to you later Sigurd, bai~

:O You have an interesting wife >.>;; XD

I'll look forward to that collab then :) PM me anytime ;) I think it would also be a great experience to go aboard your S.S.A.D.D. *peace sign here* I hope to learn a lot from you! :)

PS:
I hope I somewhat meet your wife's standards... from your chats with an anon I hear she has pretty high standards... o.e XD Well... I can worry about that later... :P

PPS:
Good luck with work ^-^

I do have a very interesting wife.. <__< But I probably wouldn't have married her if she wasn't.

Lol:P I'll look forward to it too, haven't worked with someone outside of Team GEMINI in a long time, so it'll be a nice breath of fresh air. Don't worry, as long as we make it tooth-achingly sweet, she won't notice any of the mistakes. >_>

Y'know instead of lurking those convos, why not just jump in and say hi? =P We're just chillin' in thar~

Yuki told me to read it and said that I'd like it. Normally she's right about these things, but this time she was wrong. I loved it. :P Thanks for sharing and I can't wait to read what you and that dopey slug come up with.

Really short epilogue... something I thought about while someone was sharing their stories in class xD

Spoiler: Epilogue
Normal POV

"Hold my hand." Fate commanded, sounding stern to her new girlfriend.

"No I'll hold yours." Nanoha replied.

Fate tilted her head a bit and asked, "What's the difference?"

Nanoha simply smiled. "If you hold my hand you might let go but if I hold yours... I'll never let it go."

Fate was in a mixture of emotions... the most dominant one being flustered from the words Nanoha chose for her.

Her face was, in a phrase, tomato red. "I'll never let you go, silly."

And with that the two happily went home, holding each other's hands tightly.

Well...? XD It's not much but yeah that phrase stuck with me the entire day... so blah... instant epilogue here xD
