Lucarly: I'm totally writing this because I need to write more Yuaki. Even though Mijack is my absolute favorite.

Aki: Well, you'e favorite couple's future isn't looking too bright in the series.

Lucarly: Shut-up! That's what fanfiction is for!

Aki: Right...Lucarly does not own Yu-Gi-Oh 5D's


Yusei's POV

I always loved it when Aki put her hair in a ponytail. There was no real reason why, other than I thought it made her look extremely attractive, even more than she already is.

Yet, I always suppressed these thoughts of her. It was my belief that she was more in need of a friend than a lover. And that was exactly what I would be; her friend. Not a romantic partner. Complex feelings like love always cause sorrow at some point. And sorrow is the last thing Aki needs. She's already had enough to fill her for a lifetime.

However, it's surprisingly difficult to lock away such romantic feelings. As silly as it sounds, I usually have to leave the room when Aki enters with her hair tied up in a ponytail, simply because the situation is too tempting. Unfortunately, Aki had been wearing her hair more and more often in the said hairstyle.

"Yusei." said a dark, female voice from behind me, interrupting my thoughts. I glanced behind me to see Aki, her face unreadable as usual. And damn, her hair was pulled back in a ponytail. I felt my cheeks heat up slightly and I immediately looked away.

"Aki." I said plainly in response. From the corner of my eye, I saw her twitch slightly.

"Yusei, what's wrong with you?" she asked calmly but sternly. I still didn't look at her.

"Nothing." I replied. She cocked her eyebrow.

"Why are you avoiding me?" she persisted.

"I'm not avoiding you." I replied flatly.

"It seems like it. Are you mad at me?" she asked.


"Then what the hell is wrong?" she said, clearly getting annoyed. I cast my uncertain gaze at her.

"May I be blunt?" I asked simply. She only nodded, crossing her arms in waiting for my answer. I inhaled a deep breath and looked directly in to her richly-colored amber eyes.

"I...think you look really beautiful when you have your hair in a ponytail. But, I don't want to get you involved in a romantic relationship with me. It would be-" I continued before I was cut off by her pressing her finger against my lips.

"You're such an idiot." she said before kissing me gently on the lips. Her action took me completely by surprise, but I soon kissed back. After a brief moment, we pulled away, our eyes still closed and our foreheads still touching.

"Don't ever hold anything back from me." she whispered in an almost seductive tone in to my ear.

"Mhm." I mumbled, nodding.

And I could still taste her lips on mine.

Lucarly: I bet you all hate me because I wrote a drabble. Nobody really likes drabbles, but, screw it.

Aki: ...Please review.
