Secrets of Life, Part 10!

(Kobra Kid's POV)
“So, you guys want to pick out your own rooms? I know it's a school and all, but there's plenty of room, so if you want to, you have have room but mine.” She said, smiling. Wow, after her secret was out, she was so much more...well, sweet.
“Hey, Kobra, I wanted to talk to you...” She said, as I was about to follow Ghoul, Jet, and Poison to explore the school.
“....sure.” I said, a little cautiously. She look my hand and pulled me outside, and around the corner of the school, where there was a bench, barely standing, but still together. She sat me down next to her, and then looked up at me, with wide, thankful eyes.
“You saved me life.” She said, simply but softly. I blushed as I remember what happened. I had seen Korse grab her and try to stake her. I ran, and shot at him, but he saw me and ducked out of the way, leaving Blue to be wounded by my shot. I shuddered as I remembered how she fell to the floor, holding her stomach, and then, not getting up again. I had honestly thought she was dead. Then Ghoul picked her up, and I realized that we had driven the Dracs and Korse back for the time being. We ran to the car, and Radio took Blue, and held her the rest of the way home.
“How is it that I didn't kill you?” I asked.
“Getting hit by guns can hurt, a lot, but eventually, we heal. If we're ever decapitated, staked, or caught in the sun....well.” She made a motion under her neck, and I nodded.
“I get it....I get it...Please....don't talk about it anymore?” I asked.
“Oh....kay....?” She said, a little confused.
“Look, I know you're....I.....Well, I'm just glad you're okay.” I said, finally.
“Thanks.” She smiled at me. We both sat there for a few minutes, not talking, just enjoying silence together.
“BLUE!!!! CAN I HAVE THE ROOM NEXT TO YOURS!??!” We heard Ghoul call from inside the school. Blue rolled her eyes and smiled.
“YOU MEAN THE ONE I FOUND THREE DEAD BIRDS IN???” She yelled back, with an evil grin.
“WHAT!?!?” Ghoul yelled.
“Just saying.” Blue giggled.
“That's just gross.” I said, wrinkling my nose.
“Well, it will keep him away from my room.” She said, winking, and standing up.
“You know, you can be so....” I started.
“So...what?” She asked me, grinning widely.
“So....contradictory...” I said, my breath taken away.
She laughed, a hearty, happy laugh. “For the first time, Kobra, I feel free. Free of fear and hate. I don't know how long this....buzz....will laugh, but I want to enjoy it while I can.” She said, her smile fading a little, then she turned to the school.
“Wait!” I said, desperately, not wanting to leave her thinking I stole her buzz.
“Yes?” She asked, expectantly. I placed my hand on her shoulder.
“I.....I'm glad you're happy. You can always trust me....you know that?” I asked her.
Her eyes widened, and she gave me one of the sweetest smiles I thought I had seen in a long while.
“Yeah, Kobra. I know that....you're my new best friend.” She smiled. My heart almost burst.
“Thank you. You.....you are too.” I said. Then, she did something unexpected. She pulled me into a huge hug. I hugged her back, tightly.
“Kobra?” She said, her voice soft.
“Yeah?” I asked.
“This is really nice.....we should do this more often.” She said. I laughed.
“You mean hug?” I asked.
“Yes.” She laughed back. Then she let go, and ran back to the school, leaving me starstruck.
