Chapter 1 First Meetings
"Oh man! I can't believe it! My father is going to slaughter me!" a raven haired boy shouted as he ran down the halls of the palace. Golden orbs darting everywhere trying to avoid being seen by anyone, he entered his chambers and breathed a sigh of relief. "Master Rei, you will be late if you stand there and your father will not be pleased" Rei's personal servant told him.
Rei was ushered into the bathing chambers and was quickly striped of his dirty clothes and his hair unbound. He was washed by many of his servants. Two tending to his body and four attending to his extremely long hair.
The eldest of his servants wrapped him in a towel and ushered him into his dressing chamber and made him stand by the fire as to not catch a cold.
She quickly came back with his attire for the evening; a silk red kimono with gold tiger patterns and a black sash depicting the royal family symbol; the ying yang. The woman smiled as she finished her handiwork. "You are very handsome for a thirteen year old master Rei" she complemented as she bowed to him.
He then was quickly ushered to his hair dressers. They combed through his hair and added ointments and oils so it would not dry and damage. They let his hair hang loose and his main hair dressed grabbed his crown(or whatever it's called) and placed it on his head.
The crown was more like his many head bands except made of gold with rubies and diamonds. The Ying Yang depicted in black and white clearly on his forehead.
"Come master Rei we must leave at once. Or you will be late" he said "Xin why should I go? It's only a gathering of all my father's allies from different lands I don't see how this will concern me" Rei said as he followed his servant. Xin sighed "Honestly master Rei I do not know all I know is that nobles of our land and many others will be there and there mistresses and sons and daughters will be there as well. It would be wise for you to make acquaintances with the noble's sons so you will have allies when the time for you to rise to being Emperor" Xin explained as they neared the entrance hall and the grand hall.
"Now let's see" he bent down to examine Rei to see if he was missing anything and he caught onto it quickly. "This is why you should not go out and sleep in the woods with that tiger of your master Rei" he said as he took a pair of ruby earrings from his pocket and put them in the boy's ears(I don't know if they really did this but whatever this is my fic) "His name is Drigger, Xin" Rei corrected glaring. "I apologize master Re, come we must meet with your father first.
Slowly Xin bowed for the Prince of China as he entered the entrance hall. All who were present bowed to the prince as he walked with regal authority and a royal air around him towards his father. As he walked his eyes caught the eyes the color of crimson.
With his eyes locked into those eyes he had walked straight into one of the servants carrying silver platters with refreshments. The platter fell by his feet the refreshments splattering all over Rei causing an uproar as people scurried away from the Chinese Prince.
Rei wiped his cheek and looked at the icing and smiled and licked it smiling a bit. One of the clean up crew came and started to clean the mess as quickly as possible.
"Master Rei are you alright?" Xin exclaimed as he rushed to the prince who had been the only victim of a platter landing on him. "Raul!"Xin exclaimed at the boy still standing thunderstruck that he had dropped a platter on the prince "Quickly go to the kitchens and stay there!" he commanded the boy came out of his stupor and quickly ran away.
Many servants came to help clean up the cake covered prince. His crown was taken for cleaning and his kimono and robe cleaned. He looked around for the person with the most beautiful crimson eyes he'd ever seen. No such lick as there was no sign of him. He turned to look down at himself and nodded satisfied "That's fine, I'm fine" he said.
A girl kept cleaning the hem and he took her hand in his and looked up. "It's alright you may go" he said smiling at her. She quickly stood and apologized and quickly left.
Rei began to laugh at the incident he was sure his father would be furious about this but frankly he did not care. Many around him started to chat once again returning to their business before the incident.
"Shang your son is quite something" the Russian leader of the army Voltaire Hiwatari said narrowing his eyes at the boy with raven long hair laughing and making his way up to the throne. ' He lacks discipline this will make it easy for me to take over once his father is out of the picture' he thought eyeing the prince.
"Yes I know, I trained him to where even his own servants respect him but out of gratitude and happiness not out of fear" Shang said as he turned to the Russian. "How is your grandson? I heard what had happened to your son and his wife and I apologize for not attending their passing ceremony." Shang bowed in deep apology. "There is no need for apologies Emperor" Voltaire bowed back.
"Ah here comes the Japanese nobles Lord Kinomiya (grandpa) and his two grandsons Hitoshi and Takao (Tyson) Kinomiya" He bowed to the guests that had just arrived they all bowed in response to the Emperor. "It's nice to see you young one" Lord Kinomiya said as he ushered his grandsons away. The two quickly left searching for two certain people.
"Mom why did we have to come to China?" a blond said looking at his mother. "Max because this is a formal gathering and besides it'll serve you will get in good terms with the prince so you will be friends and allies" his mother told him. He sighed in defeat and kept walking, when he spotted a certain bluenette in the crowd of kids and was stuffing his face. As they made their way up to the emperor and bowed. "Lord Mizuhara, Lady Mizuhara and you master Mizuhara" Shang bowed to them. "The name is Max" Max retorted, making the emperor blink in surprise. "Maximilian!" his mother warned "My apologies for my rudeness" Max apologized bowing again. "No matter young one you are excused and forgiven" Shang said lifting the boy's face up. Max smiled and quickly walked. "You have a beautiful son Lord and Lady" he complemented, making them blush.
Max quickly made his way to the bluenette. The crowd had disappeared he quickly sneaked up behind him and covered his eyes. "Max!" Takao exclaimed as he jumped the blond. "Come on I need to tell you something" he said and dragged Max behind a curtain. "What Tyson" Max said in anticipation of what was coming. "Here let me tell you" Tyson leaned in close to his ear then kissed him. The blond reacted by putting his arms around the bluenette and holding him in place. Max opened his mout for Tyson's probing tongue extracting a moan from him as everything got hot behind the curtain. "Tyson and Max would you two keep it down" his brother hissed "Yeah we could here Max all the way across the hall" another voice said silkily.
Tyson and Max emerged looking flushed "Can't you two wait?" Jin hissed at them "You guys got a crowds attention with that moan." "Oh shut up Jin as if you didn't jump orange hair over here" Tyson retaliated making his brother go red. "Yeah well at least me and Brooklyn can keep it down and not let the world hear" Jin shot back this time leaving Tyson utterly speechless.
"Com Hi-to-shi we need to catch up" Brooklyn said dragging Jin behind him. "I love it when you do that" Jin whispered as they made their way to the gardens. "Now where were we before we were interrupted?" Brooklyn smirked "I don't know but I'm sure we can figure it out" Jin said and leaned and kissed his orange head. Making the heat around the tree increase with the deepening of the kiss and wondering hands.
Rei was walking around after meeting with his father. He had apologized about the platter incident and Lady Mizuhara had practically drooled all over him. 'Glad I'm out of that' he thought as he headed towards the gardens to get some fresh air. When he was near his favorite sakura tree he stopped hearing a moan.
"Mmm...not here...Jin..." a voice said panting "Come on...Brook...I need you..." Jin whispered out of breath and another moan came from behind the trunk.
Rei quickly turned and nearly ran back inside. He was extremely flustered and hot that he didn't notice someone bumped into him until he landed on the floor. "Ow that hurt" Rei moaned massaging his butt as he stood. "You're a clumsy fool" a cold voice said from in front of him. He looked up at the two toned haired boy. "Well you look where you are next time" Rei countered and walked past the boy before he was grabbed by the arm.
"Hey let go!" Rei said prying the fingers from his arm. "Listen you fool" he said cornering the prince against the wall "Prince or not prince you have no right to talk to me like that. My name is Kai Hiwatari and don't you ever forget it" he warned pressing the boy flat against the wall. "Oh I thought your name was asshole or something" Rei said not backing down "What? Didn't like it?" he added when Kai glared at him.
What happened next surprised Rei beyond belief. A pair of lips had pressed against his own. Kai pulled back from Rei who was speechless. "Now that's better" he smirked as he walked away from the prince. Rei blinked before he registered what had happened. He had no time to dwell on the matter since Xin came and pulled him into the great hall for the banquet and placed his now clean crown on his head as he headed to sit at his father's right hand.
The feast went very well, no incident had occurred and Rei managed to eat without making faces at some of the courses that were on the tables.
When the feast was over some of the guests were aloud to leave. Rei roamed around and spotted a blonde and bluenette talking to two older figures by the looks of it they seemed related. He made his way over to them and smiled at them.
"Whoa it's the Prince" Tyson exclaimed when they were about to bow when his hair was yanked "Ow!" "Sorry but please don't call me prince it gets on my very last nerve and my name is Rei you can address me by that okay. By the way what's your name?" he asked as he let go of Tyson.
"The name's Takao Kinomiya but you can call me Tyson" said introducing himself. "Max" the blond said smiling brightly. "Brooklyn" the orange hair said smiling Rei blushed that voice and name were one of the ones he'd heard behind his tree. Jin smiled at Brooklyn after making the Prince blush "My name is hitoshi but I go by Jin most of the time" he said and again Rei blushed at the recognition of the name. Brooklyn and Jin looked at each other shrugged that's the first a boy his brother's age ever blushed when meeting them.
"Nice to meet you all" Rei said getting over his blush and greeted them. "Yeah come on Rei let's go hang. You don't want to hang with these geezers do you?" Tyson said indicating towards the two standing behind him. "Hey I'm not old" Jin said a vain popping out of his forehead as he gave chase to his brother. Rei couldn't help but laugh at the antics that these guys used.
Brooklyn approached Rei while Jin chased tyson. "Did you see anything?" he asked "What do you mean?" Rei asked looking at the orange haired guy. Brooklyn smiled and leaned forward and whispered in the boy's ear "You were the one that saw us out in the gardens right? You saw us doing something not exactly right, right?" Rei blushed and nodded "I'm sorry..." "No I'm sorry it's just that we haven't seen each other in a long time and we missed each other. Please keep this a secret only his brother and Max know. Can you keep it a secret?" Brooklyn asked pulling away from the prince. "Yes I promise not to tell" "Thank you" Brooklyn said and gave the raven hair a kiss on the cheek making him turn the color of rich crimson.
After many laughs and antics that Tyson pulled on his older brother and his lover, the gong rang announcing that the feast was officially over and that guests would have to leave.
"We'll see ya around Rei" Tyson said as he walked outside with Jin who waved. Max stayed and waited for his mother and father. "We'll see each other again Rei. I promise" the blond said as they hugged each other. As max saw his mother and father waiting for him by their carriage. He waved enthusiastically at the raven heir. Rei looked around and noted Brooklyn must have already left.
As the farewells were said a pair of eyes watched the raven haired prince carefully . His every move and smile he send to a guest. Soon he also departed himself following his grandfather into their carriage.
As Rei made his way through what was left of the feast and gathering he saw something glinting on the floor. He retrieved it: it was a silver piece of jewelry it was in the shape of a 'K' and 'H.' He put it in his pocket and walked towards his chambers on his way biding his father goodnight.
Later he awoke with a frustrated sigh. He turned over in his bed and tried to sleep again. Again he sighed and stood and walked to his window and sat on the ledge and looked at the moon shining brightly. "Stupid bastard wont get out of my head" he said aloud and picked up the piece of silver and looked at it 'K' 'H' "My name is Kai Hiwatari" Rei said slowly and looked at the piece of silver. He let out a groan 'that's great I keep a piece of his jewelry, wont get out of my head and add to that HE STOLE MY FIRST KISS!' he thought angrily and went back to the feeling of when he'd kissed him. Then he'd wished they hadn't stopped. "Ugh!" he exclaimed as he thought about it. "Stupid fucker" he said turning to the outside. Slowly he leaned his head against the window and fell asleep. His dream depicting a certain two toned haired guy with crimson eyes kissing him.
