"So now, dear wife, how about another round?"
The hold on my blanket dropped at those four last words that rendered me speechless and made my eyes widened with utter surprise.
He didn't just say that, I thought, still in denial; a lot of denial.
I wasn't even aware anymore that I had already blown my cover for my mind had just totally stopped functioning as the guy I've known for years slowly make his way towards me. I didn't, no let me rephrase that, I can't even do anything. I just stared at him with panicky eyes until he was literally on top of me.
I have to do something! I thought frantically.
"Uh, Natsume! Get off me!" I said angrily as my mind thankfully, began to function again and decided to push him of off me with a sudden burst of energy.
But he was way too strong…
"I want another round, wife." He said, almost coldly as his eyes darkened.
I gulped inwardly as he pinned me to the bed more forcefully now.
I have never seen this side of Natsume but strangely enough, I wasn't scared…I was actually…. excited? What the?
But my thoughts were interrupted as Natsume spoke.
"Mikan…" Natsume said, seductively as he leaned towards me. My eyes widened in surprised yet again as my mouth gaped open.
Very wrong move.
And so, I was stunned when he suddenly bent down to capture mine but when he was about to close the distance, he…passed out?
I looked at the unconscious form of Natsume who was happily placed on top of me.
Okay, what just happened? I thought, very confused. One minute he was trying to sexually harass me and the next he passed out?
But my questions were answered when another new occupant of the room spoke.
"You should be thankful I got here in time Mikan-chan." The voice of my cold-hearted best friend said as she went over to me and slowly pushed Natsume of off me. The familiar baka gun in her other hand that I'm sure was the reason why Natsume's out cold.
But even if she came to help me, I was still beyond furious.
"What? Thank YOU? You were the one who had put me in this mess, remember?" I said enraged at the absurdity she arrogantly stated.
Hotaru looked at me apologetically.
"I am truly sorry, Mikan-chan. But it seems Natsume here was drunk and I was only been informed by Ruka a few minutes ago."
Mikan's anger softened a little bit, but just a little.
"I don't want to ask how Ruka knew all of these but after what happened, I am not going to play 'I Dare You' again. Ever." I said, firmly as I looked at her straight in the eyes.
She looked back to me guiltily but nodded in understanding and then offered to let me sleep in her room since it was closer.
I was still mad at her since something almost happened but of course, since I don't have that much will to ignore my usually indifferent best friend's way of apologizing, I decided to just let her take me to my room.
After she had taken to my room, she apologized once again which came quite as a shock to me since it was often she apologizes and these many times too but then again, after what had taken place, she should have and I was glad she did because she had just proven to me she really does care for me.
I sighed heavily as I lied on my bed and closed my eyes.
The exhaustion of what I've been through came over far too quickly and I surrendered.
I didn't want to ponder what would happen tomorrow.
I don't think I even wanted it to come.
And when the next day came, I was positive that Murphy's law was on my tail.
I was late for my first class which was Jinnon-sensei's class and he gave me three freaking detention! Just for being late for a minute and a half! He was so, so unfair but unfortunately, I can't do anything about it and I even considered myself lucky enough not to be thrown out of class but later, I had to take back what I said about being lucky since a pop quiz suddenly made itself known a couple of minutes later and I hadn't studied anything at all.
I breathed deeply as I slowly ate my lunch. I was alone since, as my bad luck seems to go on forever, all of my so called friends had something to do either they have to study, practice or whatever excuse there were on earth.
But at least, I hadn't seen even a single hair of Natsume today. I thought, trying to cheer myself up. Where is he anyway?
I shook my head, trying to erase him from my thoughts.
You must not think of him, think of something else! I thought fiercely and was going to look around so that I can transfer my attention to anybody else but him, when a realization hit me full force.
And so, I suddenly found myself in an empty cafeteria.
I let out a string of curses which I had picked up from Natsume as I quickly headed out of the canteen.
Darn it! I was so wrapped in my thoughts that I hadn't even notice that I was the only one left in the cafeteria.
I half walk and half run towards my classroom, hoping there were still students but albeit, the hallways were also empty.
I sighed grimly and was going to turn left when all of a sudden, I felt myself being pulled to a corner as a body suddenly pressed itself against my back and arms wrapped around me.
I was about to scream when a hand abruptly covered my mouth and I heard a very familiar voice.
"Shh… Keep quiet…Save your screams for later, girl." Natsume murmured teasingly.
I blushed hotly at the deeper meaning of his words.
"Wha-what?" I stuttered, barely audible since his hand was still covering my mouth.
"Oh how easily you forget, little girl," he scolded lightly as he removed his hand on my lips and tightened his hold on me.
I was still too stunned to speak again.
"You never answered me, Mikan." Natsume whispered as he nuzzled my neck. "And I still want it."
I shivered involuntarily as I felt him gently nipped at my exposed skin.
And all if a sudden, my day just got better.
A whole lot better.
