The Aftertaste of Strawberries and Lovemaking


Sunako Nakahara closed her eyes as she felt his heart beat against her chest. He closed his eyes momentarily in return as he felt her weight on his hips, savouring every thrust, every time she moaned as he held her closer. He placed both hands on her waist as she continued to move repetitively above him. He let out a moan as she tightened the grip of her nether lips about his length. Such acts befuddled him, yet they also excited him endlessly. Her breath hiked up a bit as she moved faster on him, her fingernails digging into the flesh of his back. Kyohei watched with half-dazed eyes as she bit her lip, evidently trying to suppress herself from emitting any sound that could be heard by the other occupants of the house. And then he placed his lips on her neck, taunting her; burdening her as she tried so hard to silence herself.

Her fingernails dug even deeper on his back. It was always foreign, the way she felt whenever they did such dirty deeds. She wondered if he felt the same way. It was a pleasant yet dangerous feeling. She rolled her head back as he sucked on her neck, lightly nibbling on the flesh as he went along. She opened her eyes as she tried to stop herself from moaning out loud. The dancers painted on the ceiling were still today. Perhaps it was because only the moon and the stars served as their light. She couldn't stop herself from letting out short gasps of breath as she straddled his waist; as he guided her hips to move faster. The creaking of the bed still sounded like cackles to her ears, though. Her lovelies still felt like they were in the room, their plastic heads shining vibrantly against the moonlight. She savoured the dark of the night as her own dark began to enshroud her with its assuring presence. And as Kyohei placed his lips on hers with their final movements leading to their climax, she couldn't help but wonder: was there ever a place of such bright happiness in her darkness?

With Kyohei, she felt there was.


Yuki slammed the palms of his hands as threateningly as he could on the dining table, eyes set firmly on Kyohei's.

Kyohei Takano looked up from his meal, annoyed at the prospect of being disturbed from breakfast. "What?"

The younger-looking of the two boys crossed his arms against his chest. "What's going on between the two of you?"

"The two of us?"

"You and Sunako."

Kyohei cocked his head to the side, incredulous of how Yuki could be so straightforward. He shrugged in return. "Beats me. What's going on between the two of you?"

"What? Hey, don't try to turn the conversation around!"

"Around what?"

"You know what I'm talking about!"

Ranmaru sneaked up behind the unsuspecting Yukinojo, dragging him out of the dining area and into the living room.

"What was that all about?!" the crimson-haired boy hissed, the idea that his plan for Sunako and Kyohei's secret affair to carry on without them knowing that he knew of it would go into shambles once Yuki would find out and subsequently tell Takenaga about it was a huge 'no' on his part.

"Well, you were hinting about something going on between the two of them yesterday, I just wanted to know what was going on."

"You… I… they… I never said anything about them!"

"Yes you did, and I bet Takenaga would like to know, too."

"What… Takenaga… they…!"

"Oi, Takenaga!"

Ranmaru stiffened as Yuki waved to catch the raven-haired lad's attention.

"Stop that!" Morii grabbed both of the smaller boy's shoulders, dragging him towards the corner of the living room. "Fine, I'll tell you! But don't say a word to Takenaga!" So much for secret affairs…


Sunako Nakahara clung tightly onto the anatomical model in their school's laboratory. Did it feel like this?

"No, doesn't seem like it…"

Perhaps it was wrong of her to compare human contact to plastic anatomical models. Trying to recall how Kyohei Takano's body felt as he held her close was… odd. It felt like she was trying to play this melody that did not have any notes. It was odd, and she felt lost, in some way. The more he would hold her, the more she couldn't comprehend this melody that she would like to play again. The fact that she was avoiding him again pained her in some way, as well. What was it she was trying to find on her own? The violin in her mind started to play again in its usual frenzied way, each strike on each string louder than ever; more painful as each note felt like it pounded against her chest. She was utterly confused. Even if she had acknowledged him as a part of her dark, why was it that she wanted to avoid him yet be closer to him at the same time? Was it because she felt undeserving of such beautiful darkness?

"Beautiful darkness…"

Two words that never should have belonged together. Was she abandoning Hiroshii-kun and her other lovelies because she had acknowledged that beauty and darkness can belong together? Was she wrong into thinking that a creature as bright as Kyohei was actually of the dark? These questions hounded her for days, and she never could understand why there were so many doubts in her mind. Was she doubting deliberately to shun these newfound feelings in her?

"Newfound… feelings…"

What exactly were these feelings?

"Yes, what exactly are they?"

"Kyaaa!"

A dumfounded Sunako looked at Kyohei, who was crouching beside her all this time.

"Having silly thoughts again?" he clicked his tongue as he neared her. "You really think too much, don't you?"

Sunako froze in her position, embarrassment evident in her demeanour.

"My take on it is: if you think too much, nothing will come to you." He looked at her sideways, waiting for her to move. She didn't. "Well, that's what I think. Not that it matters." A small smile found its way on his lips. "I'll see you tonight." He kissed her on the cheek. It felt like her skin could peel off any second as he did. Poison! That's what he is!

"Poison!" She yelled, unaware.

"See if you can find an antidote!" He yelled back, as he left the room.


"Eh?"

Ranmaru Morii nodded in return at the pale-faced Yuki.

"A surprise?!"

Ranmaru nodded even more at what Yuki said. "That's why you shouldn't tell Takenaga!"

"Hmm… but it seems kind of... not like them, right?"

"That's why they want to keep it a secret!"

A secret, huh?

It was a secret for now. But then again, secrets were never meant to be kept for long.
