I feel that I've been a little sloppy on this story lately, but I'll try to pull myself together. I can't say I'm extremely happy with the outcome of the last couple of chapters.
Warning : This chapter contains a more intense love scene than any former chapter. I ensure you that it contains no nudity or clear sexual themes, it's just a little more intense.
It didn't exactly take long. One day was all it took before Ryuuji had taken a punch to the face by a furious Kawashima Ami, and you can't exactly say he had his hopes up for the rest of the time they were going to spend at the resort.
Not long after that incident, their teacher Yuri, had come running into the lobby completely in panic at the fuzz happening in front of her. She had made sure to break up the fight in fear that the hotel manager would be mad at her, and so, everyone had calmed down.
At that point in time, Ryuuji was being supported up the stairs by a laughing Kitamura.
"Holy crap, that Kawashima packs a good punch," Ryuuji groaned as he held a hand in front of his nose. Ami had literally sent her fist straight into Ryuuji's nose when he tried to stop her from attacking Taiga, and it had been painful.
After the incident, Taiga had panicked about Ryuuji's injury and insisted to follow them back to their room. She had also sworn vengeance upon Ami for what she had done, even though it was technically Taiga who had started it. What she had done, she didn't bother telling.
Other than that, the mood around the hotel seemed good, and the whole class seemed to be having fun. Well, if you don't count the little discussion Noto and Maya had in the lobby not long after Ryuuji had been hit.
From the looks of it, it was pretty obvious that Noto had a little crush on Maya. No big deal, though.
After a long while of stumbling up the stairs, they had finally reached their room. Noto and Haruta had gone on ahead and were already inside. As soon as they all got inside the room, Haruta took one look at Ryuuji and broke into laughter.
"Ryuu-tan!" Haruta exclaimed with a hand on his stomach, pointing at Ryuuji with the other, "You look even worse now than right after you got hit!"
He kept laughing, while Ryuuji only gave him a frown.
"I have blood in my mouth," Ryuuji muttered under his breath as he slumped down on the couch, Taiga quickly following after. No one bothered to ask what she was doing there. It seemed that most people had gotten used to the fact that the two of them were always together.
"I'll get you something to drink," Noto sighed, no one noticing the little wink he gave Haruta, "Anyone else want anything?"
Everyone in the room nodded, making Noto sigh again.
'Glad I brought enough,' he thought to himself, 'though Taiga and Ryuuji are the only ones who doesn't know'.
After a while, Noto came out with soda for everyone, all in big glasses.
"Did you go shopping already?" Ryuuji asked with a bewildered expression before accepting his drink.
"Ah, no, I brought some from my house," Noto smiled before sitting down. Ryuuji took a big sip out of his soda, before shrugging a little.
"Tastes a little weird," he muttered, and Taiga nodded in agreement after taking a sip too. Neither of them noticed the smirks on the others' faces.
It didn't take long before both Taiga and Ryuuji had finished their glasses, and Noto had given them a refill, which too disappeared pretty quickly. It was only then that Taiga started acting weird.
"Ryuuji," she muttered, "I'm not feeling well."
Taiga tried to stand up, but stumbled onto the floor instantly. Ryuuji furrowed his brows before standing up to help her, but he suddenly felt dizzy.
"'the hell," he groaned, stumbling slightly, earning a snicker from Noto.
"Ryuu-tan ~" Haruta said with a teasing voice. Ryuuji turned towards him, and Taiga stood up next to him, also looking towards Haruta.
"No way.." Ryuuji muttered, putting his palm to his forehead. In his hand, Haruta held a bottle of what seemed to be whiskey, which had been partially emptied.
"Y-you're going to be in trouble you know," Ryuuji said, his voice sounding all slurry and messed up. "The Student Council president is here!" He exclaimed before falling straight onto his butt.
"Sorry, Takasu-kun," Kitamura laughed, "Even the student council president is allowed to have a little fun."
Ryuuji had trouble making out the situation. It seemed horrible at first, but he understood that the others only did it for fun. The problem was Taiga. With her petite body, she would have big problems handling that amount of alcohol.
Furthermore, they were on a school trip. Ryuuji couldn't even imagine the trouble they would be in if they were caught. He was definitely getting back at them for this, somehow. Before he could do anything, though, Kitamura, Haruta and Noto had slipped out of the room with big grins on their faces.
They were probably going off somewhere else to get drunk.
"What's going on, Ryuuji?" Taiga muttered while looking over at Ryuuji. Apparently, she hadn't really understood what had happened.
She stumbled over to him, shutting her hands around his arm. Obviously she was more drunk than Ryuuji.
"Why do I feel so weird?"
Ryuuji sighed and looked around the room one more time before scratching his head.
"Those idiots," he said with a drowsy voice, "put booze in our drinks."
Taiga looked at him with a bewildered expression before falling onto the floor.
"I can't even stand," she said with a giggle, and Ryuuji couldn't help but laugh, too. He was angry, but staying cool while drunk isn't the easiest task in the word.
"I feel like such a delinquent," Ryuuji sputtered, "even though I didn't do this on purpose."
He stumbled over to help Taiga up. It took some time for her to even be able to grab onto his hand so he could pull her up.
"We only have to make sure we stay in the room, so no one finds out," he mumbled, shifting his feet over to the couch. He let his body slump down on the couch, just lying there on his back.
"H-how can people *hick* like being like this?" he stuttered, closing his eyes.
"I don't know," Taiga said with a weird voice, "but I feel like laughing all the time." She stumbled over the couch and dropped herself down over Ryuuji, looking in his eyes with a sheepish grin on her face.
"Gimme a kissh," she said with a drowsy voice.
"How do you do that?" Ryuuji asked with a confused expression.
Taiga sighed and pushed herself up a little with her right hand, looking into Ryuuji's eyes, trying to stay serious.
"Like thi-" she couldn't keep talking as her hand slipped and her entire weight fell to the right, off the couch and onto the floor.
Taiga let out a displeased groan as she hit the floor. As Ryuuji turned sideways to find out what happened, he fell out himself, and he barely managed to put his arms by Taiga's sides, supporting himself.
Taiga was tiny, and Ryuuji weighed a lot more than her. Even if he was drunk, he knew that it wouldn't go well if his entire weight fell onto Taiga.
He supported himself with his arms, his body floating above Taiga. She just snickered up at him.
"This is just like that time," she said with a giggle, clearly indicating that she wasn't close to sober, "the night of the Christmas party, remember?"
Ryuuji furrowed his brows a little bit.
'What is she talking about?' he thought to himself, though it didn't take him long to remember.
"Come over here for a second." She said, suddenly. Ryuuji looked a little confused, but he crawled on all four around the table, facing Taiga. She stared at him for a moment before she pinched his cheek.
"Foolish little dog! An owner is supposed to look after its dog, not the other way around!" She pulled his cheek back and forth. Ryuuji flinched a little.
"Argh!" His eyes widened as his arm disappeared under his body and he lost his balance. He fell forwards, pushing Taiga down with him.
"Argh.." Taiga opened her eyes slowly, feeling a little pain in the back of her head. "That hurt, stupid do-"
She suddenly froze, seeing Ryuuji right above her. He managed to stop himself from falling completely, supporting one hand on the floor on each side of Taiga.
He looked at her, dumbfounded, feeling the blood rise through his cheeks and to the tip of his ears. Taiga started blushing too, staring at Ryuuji, not able to do a thing. "R-ryuuji.."
Ryuuji stared blankly into her eyes for a little while before snapping back to his senses.
"I'm sorry, I-!" he stopped, not sure what to say further. He hadn't moved yet, though. A tear appeared in the corner of Taiga's eye. "Ryuuji.." she said with a shaky voice.
He looked nervous. "Taiga, are you hurt? Did you hit your head? I'm so so-" he was interrupted by Taiga's voice rising a bit.
"Ryuuji..!" He stopped abruptly, looking at her with a confused face. "Taiga..?" His voice sounded dumbfounded. Taiga started talking, more tears flowing from her eyes.
Oh yes, he remembered. How could his memory be so strong when he was drunk? Maybe it was because of the situation being re-enacted.
It was that night it had all started, after all. It was that night they shared their first kiss, the start to all that would happen between the two of them.
And all of a sudden, Ryuuji had an urge. He didn't even feel drunk anymore, he just wanted to be with that one person. The person he loved.
"Taiga.." Ryuuji muttered, staring into her eyes. She looked a little surprised by his sudden change of behavior.
"What's wrong?" Taiga asked. A muffled moan escaped her lips as Ryuuji suddenly kissed her, cupping her face with his hand. Taiga, caught by surprise, put a hand on Ryuuji's shoulder and pushed him a little back. Ryuuji broke the kiss and looked at her with a blush on his face.
"I-I'm sorry." He muttered, looking regretful. Taiga just stared at him with an open mouth, her eyes shifting constantly from his eyes to his lips. Her face was red, and she was breathing heavily.
Ryuuji was just about to say something when Taiga wrapped her arms around his neck and pulled him into another deep kiss, this time catching Ryuuji by surprise.
There were less restraints now that they were actually drunk, and it didn't take long before their tongues intertwined with each other, playing back and forth in their mouths. They no longer had any control of what happened, as they only searched for the warmth of each other's presence. Ryuuji didn't know when Taiga had wrapped her legs around his waist, he just knew that she had.
Not really noticing it, Ryuuji's hips were being pulled towards Taiga, pushing at her waist. The intensity of the entire situation had Taiga moaning in a high pitch between the kisses, not even bothering to keep it in.
Though they were both drunk, they knew each other's limits. Ryuuji wouldn't go too far, nor would Taiga. They still had control, they had just let go more than usual.
Ryuuji had noticed that Taiga had started to slowly grind her hips in a circular motion, but he didn't pay much attention to it. His attention was focused on the kissing, but it wasn't long before his hips were moving in tact with Taiga.
This really wasn't the result Ryuuji had expected from getting drunk, but he didn't mind it. Neither did Taiga.
"Ryuuji," Taiga muttered between their kisses, "I love you.."
Ryuuji used his thumb to remove a strand of hair from Taiga's eyes, gently striking it behind her hair.
"I love you too," he said with a gentle voice, but his breath was ragged from the intense kissing and the constant movement.
'I really don't mind this.'
"Oy, Ryuu-tan, have you-" Haruta stopped in his tracks as he entered the room with Noto, Kitamura, Maya and some of the other girls behind him.
"Never mind!" He laughed as they all left the room, shutting the door closely.
Ryuuji jumped off Taiga in panic, looking all around the room.
They could clearly hear the girls outside, giggling in embarrassment and amusement, and they could also hear what happened inside. A ferocious tiger was on the loose.
"Why didn't you lock the door?"
"It's not like I thought any of this would happen!"
Yeah, I put in the warning for a reason. I'm sorry if it got too intense, but I was in a fluff mood. A more intense fluff mood than usual.
Anyways, hope you enjoyed the chapter. This was more a filler, obviously.
HOLY FLUFFINESS ~
