Hello! I'm kind of on a Sugar Low right now, so I don't have much to say here... Don't brick me?
"Feli, any word from Gil or Lud?" Matthew asks, worrying about their avian friends.
"No, I'm worried about them though. It's not like them to keep us waiting like this." Feliciano says, pacing to and fro, trying not to worry as much as he was, "You think they're okay right?"
"Gil seems like he's been in worse situations. Besides, you can't kill awesome, right?" Matthew says, remembering the other's attitude.
"Kill!" Feliciano begins worrying more. Matthew mentally slaps himself.
"No! It has to be a little more to the left! Okay, okay, NO! More to the right!" Kiku and Matthew stared at Yao as they set up for tomorrow's wedding.
"It needs to go back a few inches too…" Kiku mutters.
"Perfectionist, eh?" Matthew laid his head down on Kiku's lap.
"Hey, Keeks." Kiku and Matthew looked up to find Alfred, "Can we talk?"
"I suppose…" Kiku says, void of any emotion
"Great, come with me!" Alfred says, grabbing the other and dragging him to the hallway
"Al! Get your hands off my man!"
"Kiku, I'm so sorry. You're great, you really are… but. I just can't do this arranged marriage thing! I know it must be hard to hear, but… You're grinning.." Alfred stares at the short man before him
"No I'm not. But.. This is great. Also, tomorrow. Don't freak out." Kiku grins as he walks away
"…What? Either, he takes bad news very well, or he's just nuts. What do you think Mr. Fluffy Polar Bear Thing?" Alfred asks Matthew
"Well bro, I think you should go stalk Yong Soo. Or develop some sort of sixth sense that lets you talk to animals so you can go check on Lud and Gil." Matthew says
"Mattie'd know how to fix all of this… Hell, maybe he'd hit it off with Keeks. My little brother, building a gateway for our kingdoms… That'd be great to see, right Fluffy?" Alfred asks Matthew
"You actually mean that? You think I have a chance with Kiku? And that I'm fluffy?" Matthew asks
"… That's it! I shall run off, try and find my brother, and when I find him, everyone will forget about the wedding, and Mattie and I can just be bros! All we gotta do is just be bros… Well… I should eat and rest up before I head out to be the hero!" Alfred skips off
"Hey! Toni! My brother's planning something potentially dangerous and stupid!" Matthew chases after Antonio and Lovino
"You're brother's potentially dangerous and stupid." Lovino says
"I think we all know that Lovi. So what's he planning on doing?" Antonio asks
"He wants to set out to find me!" Matthew says
"But you're right here- oh, he doesn't know that…" Antonio begins.
"We'll distract him with Yong Soo." Lovino says, "Or we can hit him over the head with something and keep him in Animal Headquarters. I personally like that idea better."
"Me too, but he's my brother, so let's try not to kill him" Matthew says. They ponder for a bit, a bit turns into an hour, and suddenly, Matthew's lost valuable time with Kiku.
"Alfred's afraid of ghosts!" Matthew suddenly exclaims, "We can tell him that this place is haunted and the only safe room from ghosts is his own!"
"You think he'd believe that?" Lovino asks
"Sure! I believed you when you said you liked women, and Alfred seems ten times dumber than me, THIS WILL TOTALLY WORK!" Antonio exclaims
"I DO like women you bastard!" Thus Lovi and Antonio wasted even more of Mathew's valuable Kiku time, arguing, and make up sex.
"Alright, stomach's full, now to rest up, then I shall find Matthew and be the best hero EVER!" Alfred talks to himself as he walks down the hall to his guest room. A small noise is heard, causing Alfred to stop in his tracks. He's attacked from the back of his knees and quickly falls to the ground.
"Hi there! I'm Antonio, nice to meet you" Alfred looks up at his knee attacker, remembering Francis being all over the man.
"Uh… Hi? I'm Alfred, the greatest hero there will ever be!" Alfred boasts. Antonio helps the man up, smiling.
"Hey, did you know this place had a grudge?" Antonio asks, causing Alfred to make the mistake to ask what that was. Antonio explained, making Alfred go pale, and nearly wet himself.
"So what room are you staying in?" Antonio finally asks. Alfred shakily points to the room right down the hall.
"Oh, you're lucky! That's the only safe room in this entire palace!" Alfred had run to the room as soon as he had heard the first syllable of safe. Matthew and Lovino sat in the corner watching, and simultaneously laughing their asses off.
"And that's why I don't do family outings, Shiro. Things get ugly." Kiku pets Matthew's head, "I have no idea why I just ranted about that, I'm so sorry Shiro, forgive me?"
"anything for you, love." Matthew smiles, leaning into Kiku's touch, "Soo really gropes you in public? And Yao's… really THAT clingy?"
"I got Heracles just to piss off Soo you know" Kiku randomly says. Matthew looks up at him hoping to hear the rest of the story.
"Yong Soo has cat allergies. I found Heracles when he was a kitten, and I was hiding him for a while. Yao thought Soo was just catching a cold, but Heracles found the mice, and it's been hell for those poor things ever since. He calmed down a little when we got him fixed, but, now he's just angry.. And tired." Kiku continues, "I would have found Heracles a nice quiet home, but the night I found him was the first incident of public groping."
"Ah yes, Soo gropes you and your chefs suffer" Matthew jokes, before realizing the sad truth of it.
"I bet you would have many stories to tell if you could speak, or if I could understand you… I'd kill to be able to talk to animals, it's on my list of wishes I know will never be granted, right under get Yong Soo to stop groping me, and before more salt." Kiku hugs his bear close to him, "Shiro…"
Matthew looked up at the raven haired man.
"Do I really have to get married tomorrow? Alfred-Kun's opposed to it, and that arch thing is really bothering me…" Mathew raises an eyebrow in confusion, "If I hide out at the festival, Yao will end up finding me, he always does. That psychopath trying to kill me is probably plotting as we speak… It seems useless to run…"
"Kiku! Don't give up! You and I have some sort of huge destiny we have to fulfill… I don't know how we fit into this huge shebang, but we do, and it…does… something…" Matthew tries to cheer the other up before realizing Kiku wouldn't hear him, "I just wish you could hear me. If you could, maybe we wouldn't be in this mess… If I hadn't wandered the forest alone, what would have happened? Would you have gone all ninja on him like the guys said you could?" Right now, Mathew couldn't care less about being invisible or not, he just wanted to comfort Kiku in every way. Matthew had no idea what he was feeling, but he knew one thing;
He'll protect Kiku at all costs.
Now that he had that settled, he just need the other to Kiss him. It was going to be a long day.
GAIZ, I THINK HE'S IN LOVE. I DUNNO, I'M JUST THE AUTHOR. I'm trying to drag their day out a bit, cause Kiku and Matthew really need that bonding time.
