His smile was the most beautiful thing in the world.
It was rare and fleeting, but each time Yuuki saw it, warmth flowed through her body.
Zero's twilight eyes would soften and his silvery hair would fall across his forehead, giving him the look of boyish innocence.
Yuuki wanted to capture that smile forever. Those moments of tenderness were precious to her. If she could capture each smile in a bottle to save and look at them whenever she wanted, she would.
She wanted those smiles and she wanted them for herself. She knew it was selfish of her, but she did not care. If she was going to be selfish about one thing in her life, it was this. She would not compromise about this.
She saw him across the academy's campus, coming towards her. He looked angry as usual. His dusky eyes were stormy and she shivered at the power they held. She would tame the storm.
He opened his mouth to snap at her, but she held up a fragile hand. He scowled at her.
She grabbed Zero's tie and pulled his face down to her own. She wouldn't wait any longer.
"What are you– "
She cut him off by placing her soft lips on his. There was a collective gasp by the Day class students in the quad.
When she pulled away, she saw what she was looking for in his eyes. Love.
"Smile," she commanded.
And he did.
