Okay, here's the second Chapter! But before I start, I notice I never got any reviews… kinda depressing, because I really did work hard. So after you read, please review!

On Christmas day, Lili sat curled up on her couch, clutching the cup of hot cocoa in her hands. Snow covered everything outside, and Lili just sat there, admiring the blanket of white.

"So pretty," she thought.

"Shh," he breathed in her ear. "Just wish for snow."

Hiromi's voice rang in her mind, and she quickly shook her head, blushing. "Yesterday was really fun…" she said out loud.

She never got any time to daydream, though, because then the doorbell rang.

"Lili!" her mother called from the kitchen. "Can you get the door?"

Lili was about to call back that her dad would get it, but then remembered that he was doing paperwork in his office at the police station. She sighed as she opened the door— but was she glad at who was there.

"Oikawa!" she said, surprised.

"Merry Christmas," he said as he stood in the doorway, the checkered coat and scarf he was wearing firmly wrapped around him. "And it's Hiromi, remember?"

"Yeah," she muttered, wondering why she felt so strange. "Merry, Christmas, Hiromi."

There was silence for a few seconds.

"Aren't you going to invite me in?"
"Oh! Right!" she said, opening the door wider and stepping aside to give him room to come in.

He walked inside and immediately sat on the couch Lili had just come off of. "Jerk," Lili thought as she sat beside him, "acting like it's his house." "Here," Hiromi said, and he handed her a present.

Lili blinked. "Mine?" she asked, immediately realizing that it was a stupid question. "Mm-hmm. Yours," he said, looking away to hide his blush.

Lili opened the bag, and inside she saw a small box. She took it out and opened it slowly, to find a necklace with a star-shaped pendant inside.

She grinned. "Thanks!"
He nodded, trying to suppress a blush. "I thought it was appropriate, since you have a star ring and all…"
"I really like it," she said, holding it out.
"Great," he said. "So where's mine?"

More silence.

"About that…" Lili wore a sheepish grin.
"You forgot, didn't you?" he sighed.
"Totally slipped my mind!"

He sighed again, and shook his head. "Whatever. Doesn't matter to me, anyway."

Lili felt a little hurt. "I'll get you present as soon as I can…" "It's alright, forget it," he said. "Let me put that necklace on for you."

Lili turned her back to him and threw her long, blonde hair over her shoulder. Hiromi took the necklace from her hands and put it around her neck.

Lili could feel all of it. She could hear soft noises from his fingers as they fumbled over the necklace's tiny catch, and she noticed that whenever his hands touched her back she felt a twinge of… excitement? She wasn't sure how to describe the feeling, but boy, was it good…

"Finished," he pronounced. Lili looked at her reflection in a nearby mirror, and noticed how the necklace seemed to shine. "Thanks," she said again. "No problem. I guess I'd better be going…"

"No, really, Hiromi," she said, making sure she got it right this time. "Thanks."
He blushed as he nodded again. "It's what friends do."

"Just… friends?"

Her question seemed to hang in the air, and she wished she hadn't asked it. "Sorry," she hung her head, definitely not feeling like herself. "I—"

"You want to be—more than friends?"

Lili looked up at Hiromi's question, and slowly nodded. There was a little silence as they leaned in closer, and their lips touched…

"Lili," her mother was about to walk in, "who was at the—"

And then she saw Lili and Hiromi on the couch, kissing silently. She smiled a little as she walked back to the kitchen.

"They can have a little fun… after all, it is Christmas."


Hope you liked it! I'm sorry I couldn't post it yesterday, but I was really busy. Merry belated Christmas; please review!
