Usual d and w.

"Would you like some more Shindo-kun?" Touya's mother asked.

"No thank you. It was wonderful."

"I'm glad you liked it." She turned to her son. "Your father's study group will be here in an hour why don't you show your friend around the rest of the house."

"Alright. Come on Hikaru I'll show you around the inside." Touya grabbed Hikaru's hand and tugged him towards the door.

"This is were the study group meets." Touya gestured around the large room. It was empty except for some cushions and a goban.

~" I want to play look at that board."~ Sai looked at the problem spread in front of him. ~"The answer is 13-7."~

"This is last week's discussion problem, we had to think of two good moves."

Hikaru scanned the board and thought deeply for a moment. Sai's right, but an alternate way of winning would be 9-15 it would just take longer.

"Two moves that's easy. You just have to decide if you want an instant win or a win in five moves."

"Instant? I found the five win and a nine win. Where's the instant?" Akira looked over Hikaru's shoulder at the game.


Akira thought for a moment then sighed. "You're right as usual. How do you do that? Even I thought about it for a while."

Hikaru smiled over at Sai. "I had a wonderful teacher."

"Who? You never told me who taught you."

"I'll tell you but you can't tell anyone else. Okay? You have to promise." Hikaru blushed. "And you can't get mad."

"Mad? Promise? I'm really curious now." Touya cocked his head and smiled. "I promise not to tell anyone. And you are the only person who can make me mad so I guess I'll have to promise to try not to get mad. Good enough?"

"That will have to do. He's hands down the best go player ever. His name's Fujiwarano Sai." Hikaru paused and waited for Akira to make the connection.

"Sai? Why does that name seem familiar? I've never met anyone named Fujiwarano Sai. I'm sure I haven't." Touya looked puzzled. "Why would I be mad, because you think he's the best ever?"

"Wait a minuteā€¦ you don't mean the Sai that defeated both my father and me." Touya frowned. "So you are the one that set that game up. It was the best thing that ever happened to him. He not only took time off it renewed his drive to improve his game."

"I'm glad you feel that way. I was afraid you'd be mad I pretended to know nothing about Sai." Hikaru smiled.

"When do I get to meet him? I'd really like a rematch."

"I wish you could see him, but it's not possible. Nothing would make me happier than the two people who share my heart to be able to meet."

"I didn't mean to make you sad. Smile for me and I'll show you my room." Akira slid his hand into Hikaru's.

"Really your room, huh? This I have to see." Hikaru smiled brightly.

He's so cute. He just shines. I wonder why he's with me. I never want to see him sad. He should always be happy. In the four months we've been together I've never seen him upset or sad. Even when he was nervous about meeting Dad, he never seemed upset. Though he was really relieved when Dad had a surprise match and was out of the country for almost two months.

I'm so glad we decided to get an apartment together. But speaking of rooms does he expect us to share a room or are we going to have separate bedrooms? I never even thought about that. Hikaru turned to Sai.

What should I I do? What if he thinks we'll be sharing a room? I don't know if I'm ready for that. I want to but I'm scared.

~"He'd never force you to do something you don't want to. Touya is happy just to spend time with you."~ Sai reassured Hikaru. ~"When you two are ready it will just happen. It doesn't help to worry. I've never seen a better or happier couple than you two. And you know I've seen a lot of people."~

"Wow you even have your own computer. Your room is just as tidy as I thought it'd be."

"I'm glad I finally got you here. You finally ran out of excuses."

"Your Dad terrifies me. I really like and respect him so I'm scared he won't like me. My greatest fear was he wouldn't accept us being together. I didn't want him to hate me for loving you." Hikaru blushed and lowered his eyes.

"I love you. My family just wants us to be happy. My father's been almost as interested in you as I've been for years. Of course I was interested in more than just your go ability. I wanted you. The more I knew you the more I wanted to know."

"I'm glad I panicked and kissed you, if I hadn't we'd probably still be tiptoeing around each other.. If I'd thought first I never would have had the nerve."

"I thought you disliked me. I wouldn't have approached you because I feared you'd reject me. I was sure friendship was too much to ask I didn't dare to dream of something more."

Hikaru grabbed Touya's wrist and pulled him closer. "You were wrong. I've always wanted to be your friend. I'm so glad I can be with you."

Hikaru pressed Akira into the wall and ran his hands down his love's sides. Akira parted his lips and sighed.

"I love the way you feel." Hikaru kissed the side of his neck. "We have to head down soon. Kiss me first."

Hikaru wrapped his arms around Akira's neck. The kiss was liquid fire. From the moment their lips touched. Hikaru slipped his tongue past Akira's lips.

Akira moaned when he felt the first flick against his own. He ran his hands down Hikaru's back until he reached the small of the back.

~"I hate to interrupt, but its been ten minutes. It's time for the study group."~

Hikaru pulled back and sighed. "Your lips are swollen. You look like you've been kissed thoroughly. Everyone's going to know what we've been doing."

"I don't care if they do know. Your lips are swollen too. When did you get so aggressive? Not that I mind you just surprised me." Akira hugged Hikaru and grinned. "We really need our own place."

"One of these days we won't be able to stop." Hikaru snuggled in closer. "Every time it gets harder to hold back."


"Shindo-kun will be joining us this evening." Touya Koyo announced.

"So Shindo you finally agreed to come. The last time I asked you to join this group you told me no." Ogata smiled faintly. "You said you wanted to defeat Akira-kun not study with him."

"But I've beaten him so it's okay to study together now." Hikaru blushed as he saw Ogata's eyes flick from his mouth to Akira's and back.

"I'm glad to see you two are getting along so well." Ogata turned back to the board "This should be interesting."

"We'll go around the board. Everyone say the best move they came up with. Ogata would you like to start? After everyone states their choice we'll work out a few of the answers."

"9-15." Ogata stated calmly.



Finally it reached Hikaru. He answered without a single hesitation, "13-7."

"Interesting. Have you seen this problem before?" asked Touya Koyo.

"Yes, Akira-kun showed it to me earlier." Hikaru answered.

"I' m curious how long did you study it?" Ogata asked.

"Two minutes." Akira answered for Hikaru.

"Really? I knew this would be interesting." Ogata laughed when he saw the puzzled look on the faces of most of the group. He placed the stone on the point Hikaru had said.

"Find me a good next move." Touya koyo said. "Then Ogata will tell you why he's laughing."

Ogata sat back and waited. Finally everyone admitted defeat. "I'm laughing because he found a winning hand that I didn't see in less time then it took me to find the next best move."

The group lasted for another hour. Sai found himself sighing happily. ~"Such wonderful discussions. Fascinating problems. I like this group. Morishita-sensei is going to be upset to hear you came here."~

I brief look of terror floated across Hikaru's face. Hikaru nodded slightly. It is excellent isn't it" And Sensei will never find out from me that I came here.

Everyone headed towards the door.

"Thank you for your time, Touya-sensei."

Ogata whispered to the boys as he walked past. They both turned crimson.

Touya's father shut the door and turned back to the two remaining boys. "What did Ogata-san say?"

"Congratulations." Hikaru said.

"And that a cold drink or ice will bring the swelling down faster." Touya added.
