I'm re-doing the concept I made for Mistletoe Tales with a series of thematic one-shots for Valentines' Day. Yeah! Since I have more time to prepare, I might go beyond the five chapter one-shots. Ahahahahaha! Anyway, here are the rules for the chocolate dare:
1) Word count should be limited to 1,000 to 1,500, exclusive of the title and the author's notes, 2) There should be a chocolate in the scene, and 3) Any genre is allowed as long as the characters are not OOC.
Do leave me a note if you've written one—I'd love to read well-thought out one-shots. This series goes out to all Yui fans and FY shippers. :D Happy Valentines, everyone! I hope you're not dateless this season. [Poor me, I am the one who's dateless… Argh!]
Disclaimer: FY and Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge are not mine.
Chocolates for the Playboy
Why did she even fall for the guy? He was a playboy and he also had a reputation with older women, a thought that doesn't sit well with her. He was too conceited for his own good and leaned toward the dramatic type. But he was funny. They were lab partners in Chemistry and he always makes the weirdest concoctions in class.
"You haven't given me a chocolate yet, partner," Ranmaru teased and she made a face. Yeah, he always teases her too. She was not his type of girl, she could tell. But he flirts with her anyway. It was kinda fun once in awhile but it gets tiring sometimes. "Seriously Yui-chan, I look forward to your chocolate."
"Who said I'm giving you one?" she hit back, hiding the wrapped chocolate behind her. No, she can't give it to him. Ever since they became lab partners, he knew how much she loathed him. She can't back out on that fact. Ranmaru eyed the box. "It's not for you."
"WHAT? Are you already dating someone? Why didn't you tell me?"
"Why should I tell you?" she said, slightly angry. "Not because every girl in school has this big sexual crush on you means I feel the same way, ne."
Yui made a face. "Why not? Why should I? You're a slob, you don't study hard, you always expect me to give you answers in Chemistry—I'm just your partner, I'm not your tutor!" She banged the shoes locker. "And I'm so fed up with having so many girls ogling at us while we work."
"Hey, it's not my fault I'm good-looking," he quipped confidently, making Yui roll her eyes. "Why don't you just admit liking me, Yui? It works easier that way—"
"You are so narcissistic too, I hate men who are so full of themselves," she stated, her voice rising a notch higher. Ranmaru eyed her seriously.
"What else do you hate about me?" he asked and she looked straight at him.
"Everything. I can't stand you," she said with distaste and then turned away. Ranmaru grabbed her arm and pushed her to the lockers. He hastily placed his hands at the sides of her face, creating a cage to make her stay. Yui's heart palpitated at the closeness. They were alone in the shoes locker now.
"Say it one by one," Ranmaru said. Yui felt slightly nervous. She never saw him this serious before. "I want to hear exactly what you hate about me."
"Fine. I hate the way you walk, always taking too much attention. I hate the way you flirt with every girl in the world. But what else can I expect? You always use your charms to pass class." Ranmaru had the hurt expression on his face. "There are thousands of other things why I hate you but you know what I hate the most? You play with the emotions of girls!" she breathed out. "I hate you too because—" she gasped and looked down. I like you, Yui thought. She almost said it out. "I hate you…"
"It's not my fault they run after me. Don't talk like being good-looking is not a curse. It's not even enough to get the girl I want," he said softly. He placed his hands inside his pockets and walked away. "I hope your boyfriend enjoys the chocolates. Happy Valentines, Yui."
Guilt filled her the moment he left. She didn't mean to hurt his feelings. So he really has someone he likes? The thought pained her. Of course he already has someone special, he meets thousands of girls everyday. Still, she felt awful. The term was ending and they won't be classmates. Yui looked at the heart-shaped box on her hand. Yeah, just admitting she likes him makes everything easier. Without another word, she walked the way he left. To hell with his playboy reputation and his sloppy attitude, she likes him—and she should tell him that. Just to get this damn feeling off her chest.
After hours of looking, Yui found him in one of the benches at the back of the school. Very few girls go there and most have been running after Ranmaru's other heartthrob friends around campus since morning. He was lucky to find a spot but there were thousands of wrapped homemade chocolates beside him. Yui approached him and he turned; his expression changed immediately and he looked away.
"Can I sit down?" she asked.
"Go ahead, the bench is not mine," he said sarcastically. Yui sighed and sat down.
"You received lots of chocolates today," she noted. "Are they good?"
"Haven't eaten yet." Ranmaru said and Yui frowned. He was not in his usual cheery mood and it was all her fault. "Don't plan to, anyway." Yui nodded and looked down. She gently offered him the box of chocolates and he smirked. "I don't take left-overs."
"I really made it for you, baka." Ranmaru still hasn't moved. Yui placed the box down on the bench. "The truth is… I don't hate you. As a matter of fact… Yui likes Ranmaru a lot…" She said softly, sadly. The bishounen looked at her from the sides of his eyes. A solitary tear fell from her eye and she smiled. "That's it, I guess…"
She stood up and walked away. She didn't know why she was crying. Maybe because she made him feel bad or probably because Ranmaru wouldn't find her confession different from all the other girls. She wanted to be different but that was not possible. She was just a plain Japanese student, she was not as beautiful as the women he flirts with everyday.
"Yui-chan!" he called and she quickened her pace. "Hey, I'm just kidding. I'm not mad. I'm opening your chocolate now." She heard him crumple the wrapper. He was still following her. "The chocolates you made smell really nice, Yui-chan. Look, I'm putting one in my mouth now—"
"STOP IT! What's wrong with you? Can't you just leave me alone?" she screamed back, turning to him. His mouth was open and he slowly placed the chocolate back in the box. She looked down.
"Why are you crying?" he asked, finally reaching her.
"It's none of your business."
"I didn't dump you," he said and Yui flushed. He laughed at her reaction and put a chocolate in his mouth. He slowly ate the contents in front of her, making satisfied noises. "Hmmm. Yui's chocolates made Ranmaru happy. They taste different from the others."
Yui smiled slowly. "I added strawberries and—" a soft kiss silenced her and her face felt warm when she met Ranmaru's cold gray eyes. He smiled softly.
"Yui-chan's lips taste different too." He leaned down to kiss her again. "Very different." He planted another kiss and another and another and another. Yui lost count of the number of times he leaned down to kiss her as her heart was palpitating wildly on her chest.
"Stop playing me…" she whispered and the bishounen smiled wider. Before Yui could react, he leaned and captured her lips for another kiss. This time, it stayed longer. She was out of breath when they parted and he planted kisses on her neck.
"Who's playing around now?" he whispered and before she could answer, he kissed her again, exploring her mouth in a slow steady rhythm. His hand circled her waist and gently unbuttoned her uniform jacket.
"What are you planning to do?" she asked, eyes half-lidded, voice heavy. Ranmaru stepped back and covered his mouth. He pulled out a handkerchief and immediately wiped his bleeding nose. "Ranmaru—"
"Don't ask things like that, you'll make me die of a heart attack! I'm bleeding to death because of you!" he told her and she looked at him quizzically. "Yui, love, next time I kiss you, just kiss me back okay?"
"Can't I call your name or moan?" she asked innocently and blood flowed more from his nose.
"Yui!" She laughed lightly and took the hanky from him. She gently wiped his nose. "You're my girlfriend now, huh?" he asked and she flushed. "Well?" she nodded and he laughed. "There are so many things I want to do to you, Yui-chan."
"Me too," she said and he fell down again, nose bleeding madly.
A/N: Ranmaru's soooo cute! I initially like Oda Takenaga but after watching the series, I realized I like his character more. He reminds me of Mimasaka Akira of Hana Yori Dango and his outfit fashion sense resembles Chuck Bass of Gossip Girl. Anyway, I'm lacking other pairings so please please please recommend a pairing so I can write a story on them before Valentines!
