Nanami-chan: Hello once again! I bring you chapter 5 of Capture the Moment. This is shonen ai (light malexmale), so if you don't like it then please leave. The pairings are as follows:
Fujio/Balmung – one sided
I would like to thank the following:
Disclaimer: I do not own .hack/Twilight bracelet or any of the characters.
"Fujio?" Sanjirou said as he slowly made his way to the bed where the blonde lay. He looked a mess, his hair was dishelved and parts of the pillow were torn.
"What do you want?" Fujio asked coldly as he looked towards the other. Sanjirou stepped back; a little frightened by the way he was glaring.
"Hey, why haven't you logged into the game?" Sanjirou asked and Fujio wiped his eyes roughly on the back of his sleeve.
"Balmung-san won't let me," he said, his voice still cold and disturbing. Sanjirou sat on the bed, not knowing if he should get any closer or not. Fujio didn't seem to be acting like himself, he never glared, always smiled and his voice was cheerful. Now Sanjirou felt like he was talking to a different person.
"Uh, I have to tell you something," Sanjirou said, thinking about how he would tell him.
"What?" Fujio said and continued to tear at a small slit he had made in the pillow sheet.
"I love you... ever since I saw you I liked you. Both in the game and here in this world," Sanjirou said and waited. Fujio just stared, making Sanjirou wonder if he heard him until he spoke.
"Huh? Fujio what-" Sanjirou got cut off and jumped off the bed, backing into the nearest wall as Fujio began to yell.
"I'm not Fujio! I've had enough of that worthless, pathetic kid! No, I'm Reki..." he said the last part so quietly that Sanjirou almost didn't hear it.
"B-but Reki's your player in the game," Sanjirou said and stayed by the wall, incase Fujio tried to attack him. He knew that his crush would never do something like that, but the way he was acting now told Sanjirou to expect anything, even if it was highly unlikely.
"No, I'm Reki! Don't you see? I am Reki, but don't worry, Fujio's fine. He's not conscious at the moment, but he says he loves you too," Reki said and smiled coldly. Sanjirou grabbed the doorknob and ran to the living room where Balmung was sitting.
"Balmung! Reki, I mean Fujio, I mean... I don't know what I mean," Sanjirou said and pointed to the room he had just come from.
"I know, I heard most of it," Balmung said, his eyes closed. Sanjirou was staring at him, trying to calm down. He was scared and confused.
"Reki... I thought that was his character in the world?" Sanjirou asked and sat next to Balmung.
"It is, but it's also another personality in him. Reki is another side of Fujio, the side that wants to last out and protect him from people," Balmung said and opened his eyes, looking at Sanjirou.
"I've never seen him like this..." he said and looked towards the room. "What are we going to do to help him?"
"I don't think he wants to be helped," Balmung said and Sanjirou looked at him, confused. "What I mean to say is that if he wanted us to help him, he would have told someone. I don't think that he wanted to help, he probably was too afraid to ask. I found a lot of pills in his bag, there were a lot."
"Pills? He had pills? What for?"
"Ask him yourself," Balmung said and shut his eyes again. Sanjirou had been so caught up in what the administrator was saying, he didn't notice a slight movement from the corner.
"Ask him myself? Are you crazy? I'm not going in there by myself, what if he snaps completely and attacks me? Or worse, what if he hurts himself?" Sanjirou asked and waited for Balmung to answer. Instead, he saw the older man nod towards the corner and Sanjirou saw Fujio. "Oh god, Fujio..." he said and ran after him as he ran back to his room. Balmung shook his head and leaned back on the couch.
"Fujio, please let me in," Sanjirou and knocked on the door. Fujio had beaten him to the room and locked the door before he could get in.
"Go away! I don't want to talk to you. You all think I'm insane, don't you? You can't deny it, I heard the two of you talking about it just now," Fujio yelled through the door.
"I'm sorry! I didn't say you were insane... I just think you need a little help dealing with whatever happened to you," Sanjirou tried to explain, hoping that he could hear him through the door. "Please come out."
Slowly the door opened and Fujio shyly looked out. "Is it true?"
"Is what true?" Sanjirou asked, trying to figure out what he meant.
"That you love me? You said that you loved me before, right? I'm asking you if you meant it or are you going to be like everyone else?" Fujio asked and let him in the room. As soon as he was close enough, Sanjirou pulled him into a gentle embrace.
"Of course it's true, why would I lie to you? I love you so much," he said and pulled away to look into his blue eyes.
"But...I told Balmung I loved him and he said he didn't love me back. I don't think I want to get involved with anyone anymore. He was the one I love ever since I met him, but now I don't know," Fujio mumbled and Sanjirou smiled.
"But he said the only reason that he said no was because of the other administrators," Sanjirou said.
"Really?" Fujio didn't sound too convinced
"Yup, but I want to be with you. I promise that I will never leave you," Sanjirou said and Fujio laughed and grabbed him. Sanjirou jumped, not expecting the sudden hug from his friend, and then relaxed.
"Thanks," Reki said and smiled, pulling away from his friend
"No problem, now lets go talk to Balmung about you going back to The World..." Sanjirou said, but trailed off when Fujio shook his head.
"I want you to do me a favor," he said, making his lover stare.
"What? You want me to ask Balmung for you? If you don't want to talk to him then you may not be ready-"
"It's not that," Fujio interrupted, placing his finger lightly on Sanjirou's lips, silencing him. "I want you to delete Reki."
Nanami-chan: Well, I'm thinking one more chapter after this one. Like I said, it's a short story, but it's going to be a long one. I'm thinking of doing a sequel after this so please, when you review tell me if I should or not. Ja!
