- Painting One's Feelings –

-Chapter One-

- Newfound Feelings -

A meeting for the student council was just taking place at the school of Ashford. All the members attended to once again hear the 'wonderful' ideas by Milly, the head over all of them.

"Okay, listen people! An art competition will be held here at Ashford, and the student council members are of no excuse to not join in! So, here, I'll announce the details.", Milly Ashford said as she banged her palms on the table to get some attention.

Most of them just let out a sigh and leaned back on their chairs, earning a stern face from her. It later changed to a mischievous one when she then moved to the topic which she knew would really catch attention.

"The first prize winner will have authority over all, and I mean, ALL the students of Ashford to do whatever he or she wants them to do, including, telling their secrets out loud.", snickered Milly as she spoke. The response was, well, exactly what she aimed for,

"WHAT?!", could be heard by the students from the other side of the school's building block.

"Ho ho ho ho, so then, members, I am sure that you would want to listen closely, now wouldn't you?", said Milly as she gave out a sinister laugh. "I'll post up the details, and if anyone wants explanations on things, ask ahead.", she offered, remaining an evil aura as she pinned up a piece of paper on a board in the room.

Everybody went and took a look at the paper printed in eye-catching colours posted by their chief. The words were,

The members were all dumbfounded after reading all the details of the competition, then turning their heads towards Milly who was sitting on her chair with her legs crossed leisurely, smirking away with closed eyes. The members just let out a sigh of defeat and sat on their respective chairs, knowing that nobody can beat the one and only, Milly Ashford.

"So, any questions?", asked Milly as she stood once again.

"Why only the Student Council have to paint a picture of their opposite gender?", asked Rivalz as he directed it to her.

"Ha, that's for sure. The idea came from me. Enough said?", she replied as she looked at the other members who just made a no-wonder nod. "Then, I guess that's the only question there is, so, Student Council meeting disband!", she continued as the other members packed their bags and left, chattering away with their friends about the newly found hell competition.

"So, Lelouch, who would you paint? Considering the subject's a girl.", asked Suzaku.

"Hm, I don't really have someone in mind. How about you?", Lelouch asked as the two were walking out the school's building.

"Ha, that….", Suzaku stopped in the middle, scratching his right cheek.

"Why, who is this mystery girl I don't know?", nudged Lelouch on Suzaku's shoulder.

"This….this…."

"It's okay if you're not going to say it. Besides, I am going to find out later when all the paintings are displayed along the hall.", Lelouch said as he patted Suzaku's back.

"Thanks, Lelouch.", said Suzaku as he laid a hand on Lelouch's shoulder. The two then laughed together as they went on their separate ways to their residence.

-------------- --------------------- ----------------------

Lelouch stepped in his residence and saw Nunnally, making some origami paper cranes with Sayoko.

"I am back, Nunnally.", greeted Lelouch as a normal gesture.

"Ah, welcome home, Onii-sama.", replied Nunnally, "How was school today?"

"Talking about school, Milly just announced a toilsome competition.", said Lelouch as he placed the outer-part of his uniform over his hand.

"Oh Milly-san did? I hope it will go well for you.", Nunnally somewhat worried, clearly knowing what kind of the 'Milly' really is.

"Yeah, I hope so.", was the reply he gave before he went up to his room.

Lelouch was then standing right in front of his room, breathing in and out, ready to go through another day with that green-haired witch after the horrid competition announcement. He opened the door, and he saw C.C. sitting on his bed. Words weren't uttered between the two, but,

"Who's your subject?", C.C. spoke.

"What?", asked Lelouch confused of her out-of-the-blue question. She didn't speak anymore, but just pointed to a girl's Ashford uniform lying on the bed. "You went to school.", he continued, hovering his uniform over his study chair.

"So, who's your subject?". Never giving up on the issue, very unlike C.C. .

"I haven't really thought of anybody yet.", unbelievably, he answered her question. As expected, C.C. didn't reply, but just swung her legs to and fro hitting the bed's bottom repeatedly.

Lelouch went and switched on his computer. In order for time not be wasted, he sat on his chair and thought straight of who's going to be his subject. 'A girl, a girl, a girl…. Who?', as he thought for about 10 seconds, he got the answer. 'Nunnally! Yes, why didn't I think of that just now? Ha, at last I got it.'

The part of deciding the girl for the competition has already been completed, for now, Lelouch just needed to find some news about Japan, or in other names, Area 11. The computer was already logged on the internet, and Lelouch could now search for data without bearing the competition burden in mind.

From the looks of Lelouch, C.C. knew that he found the right girl he would paint. It bothered her, but she didn't know why. She couldn't help but frown without an identified reason. The feeling she had now made her heart ache, grasping her attire, she went to rest on the bed, hoping it would past when she wakes. Lelouch noticed the frown she had, but didn't know what she would answer if he did ask. The cause of not knowing the reason made him ponder, but he soon shook it off, because to him, being Zero meant much more than his Geass contractor.

----------------------- ---------------------- -------------------

Days soon past at a fast rate, having the same daily activities and the dateline for the paintings was soon getting closer by the minute. Nunnally became Lelouch's model through the days. Shortly after, one day was left, and almost everybody finished their paintings and didn't have any worries except for the prize which could put each of them in jeopardy. Lelouch had just finished his painting. The only thing needed to do was to touch it up.

No matter how much people or even girls ask Suzaku who he was painting, they could never get it out of him unless they have the patience to wait till they find it out themselves on the day after the last. The last class just ended in Ashford, leaving the students to pack their bags. Lelouch was just about to leave, until,

"Hey, Lelouch.", a female voice was heard from afar. Lelouch looked at its direction and saw a yellow-haired student. He soon recognized that it was,

"Hello, Milly.", raising a hand.

"Have you finished your painting?", she asked as she took in breaths between time due to the running she just did.

"Yes, I've finished it. I painted Nunnally.", Lelouch said, saving her from asking about the person.

"What?! Lelouch, you can't do that!", exclaimed Milly, changing to an ordering posture with her poking Lelouch's left shoulder.

"What? Why?", he asked, totally confused on what was currently happening.

"She's related to you, isn't she? Of course, she's your sister, and you can't paint your sister!", sulked Milly as her sentences went all jumbled up. "It wouldn't be interesting then, if you painted your sister."

"But Mill-"

"No 'buts', Lelouch. It's an order from your Student Council Chief. CHIEF!", Milly said, poking his shoulder harder at a faster speed, causing some bearable pain. She then moved her hand away, leaving Lelouch to stroke the area slightly.

After awhile of argument, Lelouch just gave up, enough of getting the taste of Milly's offensive mouth power. He sighed and agreed that he wouldn't pass up Nunnally's picture and earned a,

"Good, then, see you tomorrow, Lelouch." from her. Phew, that was some new experience he got from squabbling with Milly. It just makes one wonder, 'Does the girl I paint really means a lot?'.

The walk to his residence wasn't a pleasant one with him getting back to square one for the painting when tomorrow was the day. When he got back, he just had to tell Nunnally about the whole thing Milly disagreed with, then receiving a pat and a,

"It's okay, Onii-sama". As expected from his understanding beloved sister. It some-sort lighten the load he was carrying, but it wasn't enough. The girl, he needs to think deeper for getting down to the decision.

Once again, he repeated his normal day routine by going to his room. A bundle covered by a blanket was seen on the bed. 'Most probably it's that girl', he thought. As he closed the door, something in his mind just went wild, telling him something even he had trouble identifying it from his own mind. It snapped, and,

'Yes! C.C.! She's just the perfect one!'

'Nobody seemed to have seen her in school.'

'Plus, she has a different hairstyle in school than here.'

'It makes her all the more unrecognizable.'

'Anyways, if anyone ever did find her familiar, I could just use my Geass to wipe it out.'

'The perfect subject!'

Lelouch grasp his fist and prepared the painting tools together with a poster sized paper. He was all ready, and the only thing left was the subject. 'Ah, just paint her sleeping.', he thought, not concerned of anything right now. He went to the bed, and lifted the blanket by a tad, giving a better view of C.C.'s face features.

C.C., she looked different to Lelouch now. The peaceful look on her face makes people forget that she's a mysterious person who can struck fear in anybody by just a touch. Her breaths were slow, making the covers slowly following her pace. Just a moment there, Lelouch just stared at her, drifting off into somewhere without a thought in mind. His trance later broke and he moved the wooden paper stand with the utensils closer to the bed.

The painting gradually made its shape of the focus, enhanced with colours of green, white and cream. Lelouch had to look at C.C. from time to time in order for a mistake not to occur in her features, painting just as she is. He thought it was funny of him to keep such a mindset in his mental side, but he just smiled to himself even though the answer wasn't known to him. The painting soon became a piece, having all its aspects in place, and it looked just like a photo taken of C.C. . It all made Lelouch happy for another unknown reason, and he just couldn't help but to brush off some hair disrupting C.C.'s closed eyelids. The Geass symbol was then visible, but she was still, cute.

After some minutes of sitting on the stool, staring at C.C., Lelouch later then realized something, he had feelings for this girl who laid on his bed for sometime already, just that he didn't knew it himself. He chuckled, waking C.C. up in the process. She rubbed her eyes and just stared at him with half-opened lids. They remained in that position for sometime until Lelouch gave out a light laugh with his left hand on his stomach.

"What's so funny?", C.C. asked, raising an eyebrow, somewhat annoyed.

"I didn't know someone like you could have a face expression like that, ha ha", and continued with his laugh. She just couldn't bear to look at him and turned over to the other side, covering herself with the blanket in hand.

"You sure take humour in weird things.", she said as the blanket was still over her.

Lelouch stopped laughing after a few seconds, and his features were then replaced by a smile, acknowledging the new feelings he just found.
