"Pound i- Hey where are you going?" Chat noir said as he held his fist in the air. However, Ladybug's fist didn't connect with his own.

"Rena's about to transform back!" Ladybug said as Rena Rouge's necklace beeped once again.

Chat noir croseed his arms over his chest and frowned. "So you're allowed to know her true identity but I'm not?"

Ladybug rolled her eyes. "It's because I have to get her miraculous back!" She said. I don't like where this is going.

"So what's my role, then?" He growled. "The guy who's always left in the dark? What else are you hiding from me?"

To him, she looked like she didn't trust him. Oh, she definitly didn't trust him. Not with her secrets, her identity, and now, with this.

Ladybug parted her lips to say something, but pursed them as she realized that he didn't have to know.

"We really gotta jam," Rena reminded and pointed her fingers at her necklace.

"Okay! I'll talk to him about it." She said and Chat blinked.

"Him?" He asked, confusion visible in his voice.

Ladybug instantly realized her mistake and scratched the back of her neck nervously. That wasn't meant to come out.

"Who's him?" Chat asked again, and she put her hand on Rena's shoulder, preparing to leave.

She took a final glance at her partner. "When the time is right, Chat noir, I promise."

Then, she was gone. He crossed his arms again and glared at her as she jumped away.

"I hate secrets."

"AH!"

"Ladybug?"

Chat noir used his staff to jump up in the sky, catching Ladybug right in time. She started coughing, and he grinned, proud of being able to catch her.

"You didn't tell me you were going swimming today."

"I wasn't planning on it," She coughed. Ladybugs aren't exactly cut out with deep sea diving you know."

He smiled. "Cats aren't exactly crazy about water either you know. Is there any chance you can get us a submerine?"

"Pawssibly, kitty cat," She said. "Lucky charm!"

Chat noir watched with curious eyes as her yoyo was tossed to the air. Seconds later, the object fell into her hands.

A potion bowl.

"Well, we can always use it to scoop up the water. It'll just take a long time," He said.

Ladybug suddenly gasped. "I'll be right back!"

Chat frowned and quickly grabbed her wrist, holding her back. "Hey, where are you going?"

He looked at her suspiciously and she looked away. "I can't..," She mumbled.
