“Hey you guys, we can see into Soul and Maka’s apartment from here! ” Liz began jumping up and down and screaming, “SOUL AND MAKA! ” Shinigami did not just have 20/20 vision--they viewed the world in high definition. When the twin pistols discovered Tsubaki drinking coffee without her meister, they quickly made another shocking discovery. Black Star swung open the door to Deathbucks and leaped into their booth.
The angle was awkward because they were on a higher floor, but there was no mistaking it--that was Soul and Maka’s apartment, and they could see Soul and Maka talking inside. “It’s almost like we’re neighbors.” This apartment was looking like a better and better fit with every minute. Maka’s small hands were grappling with his belt, and Soul’s head dived towards Maka’s neck. Of course, it never occurred to Black Star that telling Tsubaki would count as breaching Soul and Maka’s trust. She stared into the distance beyond Black Star’s shoulder as a new idea took shape in her head. This means they know that you know, but they don’t know that any of us girls or Kid know...” “It’s doesn’t matter who knows! On Soul and Maka’s side, everything was as casual and platonic as can be. Just forget it.” Soul glanced at the booth on the other side of the coffee shop. “Patty, if there’s something really bothering you, you can just tell me.
They didn’t touch each other more than necessary, Soul ragged on Maka’s underdeveloped body and Maka insulted his intelligence, and they even sat at opposite ends of the booth. Patty started to run her hands up and down Soul’s sleeve. It’s fine.” “But you’re the one person I can’t tell this to.
After Soul got his coffee, he stood up and walked to the other side of the room to add more sugar. Patty gave her sister a wink before getting up to go after the scythe. Soul stiffened at her touch, but he kept his face blank. Soul stared at her roaming hand as if it offended him. And the person I want to the most.” Patty smiled coyly as she looked up at Soul with her enormous baby blue eyes. He brought his coffee to his lips before Patty continued. I know I will.” Patty swaggered back to the booth, leaving a flabbergasted Soul Eater in her wake.
Death the Kid, the most powerful being on Earth, the reigning sovereign of the supernatural, and the personification of Death itself, didn’t find out two of his closest friends were dating until he actually saw them doing it with his own two eyes.
After his ascension to a full-grown shinigami and his assumption of his father’s old role, Kid quickly found that the small things he took for granted as a mere student were nearly impossible to enjoy as the actual Lord Death. All manners of people needed to speak with Kid at all hours, and Gallows Manor was becoming less like a home and more like an extra office.
In hindsight, it was no surprise that his friends Soul and Maka started seeing each other right under his nose without the shinigami taking any notice.
What was more surprising was that his weapons Liz and Patty didn’t know either.
Fed up with his inability to relax at the Manor, Kid resolved to rent an apartment. If Gallows Manor was to be his office-away-from-the-office, he needed to have a home-away-from-home.
The girls accompanied Kid as he began to tour apartments. Blown away by both this new revelation and the way they stumbled upon it, the three ran out of the apartment.
