Prologue

The year was 2000, and it was a beautiful day on the Konan High School campus. Well, as peaceful as it could get with these three in it.

----

Tatsuki Oohira the sixteen year old hothead, also 'cool' in the fact that even though he hated most people, stared lazily at the chalk board in the class room. To him, the only one or thing that matered was the one he really loved, his cousin, Kotarou (Kota-kun). "God, this class is so boring. Well, I could say something like that if I was actually paying attention and not staring at my cousin. Damn adorable Kotarou." As you can see, this wasn't family love, either. No, it was real love, completely and totally real. Tatsuki's world was crushing down without him.

----

Yuuto Urushiyama the sixteen year old and Kotarou's best friend, stared at Kotarou. "Why am I so in love with this kid? And why isn't it easy to tell him? It's just three words. No, that was wrong, it was three words that could change my life by either ruining it, or making it the best it's been in awhile." He stared at the teacher some more, not caring what he wrote on the board, since he knew most of it already, either way, he would manage. "I wonder what he's thinking about.. More importantly, I wonder, does he love me as much as I love him? Sometimes it's hard to read that kid's confusing aura." Suddenly, the bell rang and he grabbed his books slowly and started walking towards Kotarou's seat, but when he got there, Kotarou had already left for practice.

----

Kotarou the cheerful fifteen year old ran down the hall to practice. Someone commented on how short he was, and that he's so short, he shouldn't be on the team in the first place. "Hey! You Jerk!" He screamed, and noticing it was Tatsuki, he added a kick in, then ran down the halls once more. He hated being teased for his shortness and slightly girly figure. But, according to Tatsuki and Yuuto, that made him all the more fun to tease.

Kotarou got kidnapped almost weekly. And, with ocassional help from Yuuto, Tatsuki saved him every time. But he always thought "Why does Tatsuki even save me? He hates me doesn't he? Cause it's obvious he doesn't love me.. even when I love him so much." Of course, he didn't know that Tatsuki actually loved him, so much he had to pretend to hate him so it wouldn't slip from his moth. "Why does this always happen to me? And why, when I love Tatsuki so much, am I suddenly in love with Yuuto? I don't know what to do!" the boy screamed in his thoughts.
