Torn Between Love and Duty

Chapter 20: No regrets

"He's your… what?!"

"My master." I calmly replied him.

He raised an eyebrow, thinking that I might have had a serious mental illness.

"Persona is like a second dad to me, I guess." I shrugged.

"He's your…. WHAT??"

I giggled at his expression.

"Him…? But… How come-"

"Sorry, Andou-san" I cut him off. "I… have to go. It's kinda late and maybe I'll tell you some other time?"

I tried to avoid his question.

He stared at me for a while.

"Well… sure..." He reluctantly agreed.

"Well then, it's very nice to meet you, Andou-san…"

"Tsubasa." He corrected me. "and no '-san', please."

I smiled at his statement.

"Sure, Tsubasa. Bye then."

I turned my way towards the other direction.

But I can still feel his gaze on me.

Maybe I've told him too much today…

I've told him about Persona…

I've told him about my past…

I've told him…

Something I've never told Natsume…

I clenched my fist.

Quickened up my pace, an image of a certain person on my mind.

For some reason, I felt like I have to tell him everything…

I don't know why…

But I have to.

Because…

I know that…

I love him…

I slowly opened the door to Natsume's room.

"…Natsume…?" I called out for him.

Somehow, something is wrong.

I opened the lights.

"…Natsume…?" I called out again.

It's impossible for Natsume to go out this late. It's already 6.00pm…

I entered his bedroom.

Feeling glad to see his figure on the bed, and at the same time, I felt uneasy…

"…Are you ok, Natsume?" I walk forward.

Did he have a fever…?

Or…

"…Why didn't you tell me…?" He mumbled.

"Sorry…?" I stammered a bit. "…What did you say-"

I gasped. Shocked when he pinned me down.

I fell on the bed, with him on top of me.

"Why didn't you tell me...?!" He finally said, with his voice shaking.

I did not dare to look at him.

What is he talking about…?!

"Why…? Why didn't you told me about your illness…?!" He shouted.

My heart stopped.

What?!

How… How did he found out?!

"…You lied…" He calmly said. "…To me…"

A drop of liquid fell on my face...

I looked up.

My eyes widened.

I felt my heart shattered into pieces...

I lifted up my hand and slowly caressed his face...

He's crying...

"Natsume..." I stammered.

"You lied…!!" He repeated.

"…Natsume…" My voice cracked, "I'm sorry…"

He buried his head in my neck.

"Because of me…" He whispered, "Because of me, you've suffered this much…"

My heart clenched so tightly, tears threatened to flow.

"…You have it too…" I added, "You've suffered more than me…"

His hands began to curl around my waist.

"Persona told me… You'll be going tomorrow morning…"

I kept silenced.

I did not expect him to find out…

"I won't let you." He gritted his teeth, "I won't let you go!"

I bit my lips, unable to reply him.

"Mikan…" He continued. "You know… that I love you…"

I blushed.

"…Heh…" He chuckled, "…I sounded like a cheesy guy from a cheesy love story…"

"You don't." I smiled. "I liked it… When you say that."

Giggled a little at how amazingly cheesy it sounded.

He raised his head. His crimson red orbs met with mine.

"I really meant it…" He slowly kissed me on the lips. "I really love you… ever since the first day we've met…"

"I've never imagined myself to fall in love with you." He continued, "You're such a pain."

I giggled, "Likewise."

He continued kissing me.

I felt his soft lips moving from my lips to my neck, ever so gently…

Surprised, when I moaned…

He continued kissing my neck, at the same time, I felt my dress buttoned down…

I gasped a little when I felt his lips on my chest.

"…Mikan…?" He suddenly said.

"…Yeah…?"

My head is spinning so wildly, his kisses are like drugs to me…

"Do you trust me?" He whispered in my ears.

I paused a little, knowing where this is going…

He smirked a little.

He suddenly moved away from me.

"It's ok." He gave me a smile. "I can wait."

My eyes widened.

He looked…

Ever so beautiful with his lips curved upwards…

I want to be with him like this…

With him by my side…

Forever…

I looked into his eyes.

"I trust you." I gave him a sincere smile…

He was startled at first, but chuckled at my last statement.

"I trust you, with my life…"

My hand enter twined with his as I pulled him in for another kiss.

He laid me gently on the bed.

"Mikan…" He looked at me once more. "From today onwards… You know that… You've become mine."

I blushed, but nodded.

He continued.

I felt my clothes taken off piece by piece, as the cold air came in contact with my skin…

Looking at him once more…

Slowly closing my eyes, with only one thought on my mind…

I will never regret this moment…

The moment I gave him my everything…
