Disclaimer: I don't own Kyou Kara Maou. If I did, Yuuri and Wolfram would already be married, dammit!

A/N: Don't get confused by all of the switching around. The first section is what's happening in the present. Most of this story is like a flashback and most of it will be in Wolfram's P.O.V. So when the argument with Yuuri starts, that's a flashback.

Second Chances

How long had it been? A day? A week? Or more? These thoughts haunted Wolfram's mind as he slowly opened his swollen eyelids. He blinked quickly as the harsh light nearly blinded him. He licked his dry, cracked lips, waiting for his eyes to adjust.

Wolfram's entire body ached and he barely had enough energy to lift his head. His wrists and ankles stung, rubbed raw by the chains that bound him. His golden hair was matted and caked with his own blood and the air around him stunk of decaying flesh, blood, and filth. Somewhere nearby, a voice cried out in pain and fear. There were footsteps, a loud crack, and a thud as the voice was quickly silenced.

Wolfram shifted slightly, but stopped with a hiss of pain as the small movement reopened the old wounds on his wrists. He felt blood trickle down his hands and drip off of his fingertips, landing on the dusty floor beneath him.

He wanted to scream, to shout out, and to struggle against his bonds, but one beating per day was enough; he didn't want to give his captors an excuse to beat him again. So, wordlessly, he hung his head, resting his chin on his chest. He could feel the familiar darkness enveloping him as he closed his eyes. Almost impatiently, he began to wonder just how much longer he could hold on, before his world went dark for the last time.


"I've told you for the last time! Get out of my bed Wolfram!"

"But we're engaged, it's completely normal!"

"Normal?! Two guys sharing the same bed is about as far away from normal as you can get!"

"Yuuri, we are engaged! How many times do I have to tell you?!"

"And how many times do I have to tell you that the engagement was an accident?!"

"Until I believe you."

"When I first came here, I had no knowledge whatsoever of Shin Makoku's customs! How the heck was I supposed to know that slapping someone across the left cheek was a proposal for marriage?! If I had known, I would have never slapped you! I've wanted to end this so-called 'engagement' since I accidentally proposed!"

"Is that…how you really feel?"

"Yes, it is!"

"Fine then! You'll never have to worry about me being anywhere near your room again! Forgive me, heika, for being such a bother!"

Wolfram slammed the door to Yuuri's room shut, breathing heavily from the argument. His brilliant, emerald eyes were alight with rage.

"That damn wimp…" he growled to no one in particular.

He stalked off furiously before his emotions caught up to and completely drowned him.

Yuuri flopped back onto his bed, letting out a long sigh and folding his arms behind his head.

Wolfram's parting words kept replaying over and over again in his head.

"Forgive me, heika, for being such a bother!"

Wolfram never called him heika. It was always Yuuri or Wimp. It just sounded so…strange.

'I guess I'll have to apologize later,' the double-black decided, 'I was a bit harsh. But he needs to understand that I'm not gay! I have no intention of marrying a man! I mean, I like girls don't I?'

Then, he remembered how adorable Wolfram looked when he was angry. He sat up and shook his head vigorously.

'No way! I'm straight! Aren't I?'

But the more Yuuri pondered this question, the more complicated and unclear the answer became.


Thank you so much for reading! I really hope you like it. I think this story will end up being around 10 chapters or more, I'm not too sure. Also, sorry the first chapter is really, really short! I wrote it on a class trip with everyone crowding around me, trying to read it and I didnt have enough privacy to write more. And I just wanted to upload the first chapter to see if anyone liked it. I told myself that if at least some people liked it, I'd finish it. So...please review and tell me if you liked it or not! I love constructive critisism so if you have any, please share it! But only constructive critisism please. If you just review and say it sucked then that doesnt help me at all, does it? lol
