So cruel, that she'll never know. I always thought the cruelest kisses were the ones when one was asleep.

Painfully realistic. I'd say that I agree with you on this...It explains the end. Haha, good piece. I enjoyed it.

I would just like to say...THANK YOU:

-for not forcing a happily-ever-after AkiyamaxNao ending

-for not turning Akiyama into a cheesy knight-in-shining-armor type character

-for allowing the characters to stay in their beloved in-character personalities (okay...maybe there was a little tweak where Akiyama was involved, but the story was good, so who cares? D )

-and lastly (my current biggest pet peeve) for not making Akiyama into a pervert, sadist, or pervert/sadist-in-denial

A sweet story all around, if a bit simple. 6.75/10

Aww, that was so cute!

This was a lot better than I expected, and I love this type of surprises.

Thank you for writing this. I'd be glad to read more AkiNao shots from you, if you ever feel like writing more.

Good job.

There's a lot of substance here, and I think you did a good job of keeping Akiyama in character, which can be difficult when trying to find the balance between what is his obvious care for Nao, and his natural stoicism.

I also really like the way you handled the 'stalkery' aspect of the story. On one hand spinning a believable justification for why he would be there, and on the other hand letting him feel just a little creepy for his actions. And that actually makes what happens seem sweet and caring rather than stalkery.

It's a short story, but very satisfying. Hope you choose to write more for this fandom.
