"He went to find out what had made the noise. He cursed quietly when he realized that the tears still had not stopped. It made him feel weak when he cried and-His yell of disbelief rang out through the night."
Chapter 5: Love is Obstacles
Tohru screeched in surprise, causing Haru to yell. Kazu, another member of the dojo, fell to the ground, out stone cold.
"Oh my god, oh my god, what are we going to do?! He's hurt and it looks really bad, mom! He was only helping me! Oh my god…" Tohru rambled on, frantically waving her arms and running in circles around him.
Haru grabbed her arm, stopping her antics, then turned away and grabbed Kazu by the arms, dragging him to a nearby mat.
"What if that's hurting him?! What if he's dead?!" Tohru started to worry again, getting worse every second. "Oh, I'll get a cool cloth!" She scampered off to the small bathroom.
Haru shook his head. It was no use trying to calm her down once she started up.
She came back and set the cooling cloth on his head and sat beside the young man. Haru sat on the other side.
And then there it was. The awkward-after-a-fight glance. Both happened to glance at the same time and held the gaze.
"I-" The simultaneous starts both ended in a slightly awkward laugh. Just as Tohru opened her mouth to speak again, a groan came from between them and Kazu awoke. He looked around, bewildered.
"What happened? The last thing I remember I was leading that girl through the gym…"
"I'm sorry I can explain! We were going through the punching bags, and something came towards me and I jumped out of the way and-" Tohru started only to be interrupted by Haru.
"I hit you. On accident I mean. I was aiming for the punching bag…Sorry…" he trailed off awkwardly.
Needless to say, things were even more awkward between the two. They had apologized again and again and the Kazu just went home to sleep it off.
Haru slid to the ground, leaning against the outside wall of the dojo. Tohru slid down next to him, sighing.
"I'm sorry…I didn't mean to make you upset. I've only been trying to have fun with Haru-kun and now I've gone and made everything bad again. I always seem to do that when I freak out." Tohru paused between sentences, starting out carefully planning what to say and then just going with what she first thought.
"You didn't do anything. If anything I was mad at myself for what I did. I shouldn't have used you like that. I shouldn't have violated you by making you kiss me. It was a spur of the moment thing…" She was silent as he stopped to take a ragged breath.
"A lot of the time, I blow up when I don't mean to. I try so hard not to let Black Haru get to you-I don't know what he'll do. I just know that he likes you just as much as I do, and that for one is scary. I really do like you Tohru. I'm ashamed that I did that to you-and that I couldn't control myself."
Tohru's eyes were glistening with tears and he frantically thought he had upset her. "I'm sorry, Tohru! Just forget this ever happened!" she stopped him quietly.
"You don't g-get it. I like you a lot too, Haru. I'm not upset about the kiss at all. I wouldn't have responded if it scared me. I only want to be happy with you. I want everyone to be happy together. Even Black Haru." She smiled softly. "If it's an obstacle we have to work around, we can do it. Together. That's what mom always said! Love is full of obstacles, but if you care about the person you'll work through it not abandon it! Not that I am talking about love yet…" She quickly tacked on the last thought.
"Yet?" Haru smirked suggestively, amused at the slip.
"So-" Both teenagers laughed again, and Tohru leaned over to him, kissing him sweetly on the cheek before leaning her head against his shoulder.
"Although you know, if I keep having random outbreaks like this we'll have to be careful. We don't want to hurt anymore innocent people like Kazu!" Haru just had to add on the thought that had been nagging him.
"Let's just go home." Tohru suggested.
Home, I get more thankful for it everyday.
Here's a little bit of drama and a little bit of fluff. Yes, it is very short. I've realized what a jerk I've been for not updating for so long. I personally think I haven't written in so long my style has hopefully changed. I don't know…
Thank you all for reviewing!
