Title: The Smiling One, The Sulking One

Author: Faker of Innocence (miraraykai88 at yahoo dot com dot my)

Summary: One asks about the other's face expression.

A/N: This story, or should I say drabble, was here since I was requested by my beloved beta-reader AKA nee-chan, Angelique Starlight. So here it is. And since I had two ideas, so I just write two drabbles instead of one that she asked.

Disclaimer: If I own Tenipuri, there will not only flirting, but also make out sessions among the tennis players. Since there are none, so it is safe to say that I don't own it.


"How do you do that?"

"Do what?"

"Like that - smiling all the time. Don't you ever feel tired?"

"How about you? Don't you feel tired for sulking all the time too?"


A smirk. "Speechless now, I see."

"Che… I still want your answer."

"Saa… Why do you love me?"


"I'm asking why you love me."

"What about you? Why do you love me?"

"… This is not going anywhere."

"So I want your answer for the first question!"

"Don't you want the answer for the second one too?"

"Later. I want the first one first."

"Because smiling is better than sulking."

"… That is not the answer that I want."

"At least I answered your question, right?"


"So, want to hear my answer to your second question?"

"Can I choose not to hear your answer?"

"Why? You are the one who asked me in the first place."

"Because I already know your answer."

"And that is…?"

"… Do I have to say it?"

"As your senpai, I order you to say it."

"Hey, you are not supposed to do that!"




"Here it goes…"

"I'm listening…"

"I love you…"


"Is that satisfying enough for you?"

"… Yes, it is enough for me to smile whole day long."


"You asked me why I like to smile?"

"Yeah, so what's the answer?"

"The truth is because I know you will always say 'I love you' just by looking at me."


"You're blushing…"

"Of course I am! I … I never really knew what you always have on your mind since you are always smiling!"


"But somehow, now, I think your smile is different when you look at me…"

"Well, I'll take that as a compliment."

"It is one."

"Ryoma-kun, I love you."

"Eh? Why, all of a sudden?"

"I have to answer your second question, right?"


"Saa, you are still blushing? And, is that a smile on your face?"

"Oh, shut up, Syuusuke!"


"Stop pouting, it doesn't suit you. And you said you want to smile whole day long."

"Okay, just don't smile like that in front of other people, okay? It'll make my rivals increase in number."

"And you have to stop pouting like that. I have a feeling people will hate me for that. Deal?"



So, how was it? Please forgive me if Ryouma and Fuji seem quite OOC, since this is my first Tenipuri fic.

Any constructive review will be used wisely in the future.
