Hey everyone! So yet another Munto ficcy, but this one is with a surprise pairing! Surprisingly, this couple has grown on me and I'm even making an AMV with the two. This is just a short little thing, but I really wanted to write a oneshot with them, so here it is! Enjoy! (I'd say this occurrs between the first and second OVAs...)
His voice is low so that she has to lean closer to hear the hushed words, but she doesn't mind, savoring the sensation of his warm breath tickling her cheek as he whispers. She wants to stay this way forever, leaning slightly toward him so that their shoulders brush and she can smell his clean scent of grass and rain.
She hates herself for it. She hates the way she can't seem to stop smiling when they meet and when they depart, a hurried 'see you later' escaping her mouth and her heart lighter and heavier when he nods, because she needs to know that she'll see him again.
She hates the way she stares, watching and memorizing the way the sunlight manages to highlight his vibrant hair with gold and cast light shadows over his neck and face. She wonders if he knows how she watches hungrily so that she can replay every moment in the dark blue of her room. When their hands touch or he taps her on her shoulder or when he smiles and the world stills on its axis so that she spins dizzily in a whirl of stardust with a flushed face.
She wonders if he knows that she wishes she was the one who found him first with a steady hand and firm grip. Then the bright smile and childish innocence flashes to mind and she bites down on her lip so she tastes blood.
She wishes she didn't have to guiltily hide the unconscious smiles as the other leaps in front of her and he shifts his gaze to her instead. She wishes that she didn't have to stare furtively as he stares into space and the saccharine voice between them chirps. She wishes it was she who held his hand and closed her eyes to wait for his lips to meet hers, tasting warm light and his sweet breath.
She hates herself for feeling glad that there is no one to sit between them today, the distance bridged by her words and his quiet breathing, but somehow feeling so empty…
He says it soft and slow and she pauses midsentence, not daring to look over at him for fear of exposing her selfish desires and lingering gaze. The silence stretches until she can see the widening gap and she wants to desperately reach out and grasp his arm before he can move away. She curls her trembling fingers into a fist instead.
He says her name again and she curses herself for being so weak. She wants to scream at him, why, why, why does he do this to her? The questions turns into hot, salty tears and burn as they slide down her face. It hurts to see him turn to her and his face crease in worry, mouth forming unintelligible syllables and she hates herself for knowing she needs to tell him now-
"I love you."
Bahahahah, evil cliffhanger of doom. Actually not, because the title of this oneshot is borrowed from Dido's song "White Flag," and the lyrics match exactly to what I had in mind for this. So if you wanna know how this confession ended up, just search up the lyrics, it says everything! But I really do like this couple, I don't know why... If Munto didn't exist then this would be my OTP for the anime, Yumemi and Kazuya look great together! (plus Suzume is just plain annoying, I'm sorry...)
