Hot Gimmick S Squared.

A fan fiction continuation of Hot Gimmick S.

…I see Shinogu in my mind, but this time, rather than watching out for me from behind, I can see him walking with me side by side.

I can clearly see the two of us…

…together.

Chapter 1

As I watched Shinogu sleep, I wondered about the life I could see myself having with him. I held his hand tight and kissed the back of it.

"I love you." I whispered quietly. "And not as my brother anymore."

I knew when he woke up I would tell him how I feel.

My mother came into the room shortly after, rushing to Shinogu's side, looking worried as always, and brushed his cheek.

"Hatsumi! You look exhausted, lay on the couch and get some rest"

I laid my head down and fell fast asleep with a smile on my face thinking of what I was going to say to Shinogu.

I had a dream of us, we were together, happy.

Shinogu moaned loudly as he woke up from what seemed forever, but I was right by his side. I had awoken hours earlier and just carefully watched him sleep.

"Hey you" He said groggily with a slight smile

"Hey" I said smiling with my eyes watering. "How are you feeling?"

"Better" he said as he held my hand tightly.

"This ring is beautiful." I said as I held it up dazzling it in the light.

"These past few days, has made me realize that I love you, and not as a brother, I love you something more."

He smiled and looked like he had been waiting his whole life for me to utter those very words – well he had.

I leaned in and kissed him on the lips, and my heart fluttered. He kissed me back and kissed my forehead.

"The doctors say I'll be better in a few weeks, I wish it was sooner, but damn tourists"

I laughed with a smile.

"You are still coming back home aren't you?"

"Any where with you is home, but I was thinking I might keep the apartment with Kazama, and maybe you could come with me." He smiled and kissed my cheek.

I smiled.

"I could do that. I don't know about a roommate, but Kazama is cool. But I'd much rather just be alone with you." I smiled

"Perv!" He said laughing

"Am not! I meant it in a not dirty way, you're the perv!"

"I know, I'm just teasing you." He said kissing my cheek.

"You really don't know how happy you've made me… this is going to sound corny as hell, but you make me complete Hatsumi"

I smiled and kissed him on the lips.

"You need to go home, I'll be fine, don't worry. You need sleep."

"But…"

"Please for me Hatsumi?"

"Okay." I said with a smile.

I left the room with my spirits low; I just wanted to be near him. But I knew he just wanted what was best for me, and at that time… it was sleep.

The two weeks passed quickly and I visited him every day for hours, we talked about everything, but when he was tired he slept.

We usually talked about what we normally talked about, but sometimes it grew into an "Our Future" conversation. We talked about our life together, what we were going to do, everything that would involve each other.

It was finally the day for him to be released from the hospital. I, my mom and everyone else couldn't have been more excited.

"At least this way you can finally take a break and stop working so hard." Mom said smiling as she rolled Shinogu out of the hospital towards the car.

"Here Dad, let me help you." I said as I helped Dad put Shinogu into the car. Akane was at home with Hikaru.

I sat in the back seat with Shinogu holding his hand tightly, smiling all the way home.

We were going to hide our relationship until it grew stronger.

I wanted to scream and tell my Mom and Dad that I returned the love Shinogu had, had for me since we were young. But I knew I needed to wait.

That night Akane jumped on my bed. "Me and Subaru, finally did it!" she said smiling ear to ear.

"Let's hope you don't think you're preggors this time" I said laughing slightly "Oh yeah huh, but this time you don't have to worry about running into Ryoki!" She giggled.

I wanted to tell her about Shinogu, but I wanted to wait to see how things worked out.

"Ok, well we have a big day tomorrow. First day of school! I'll be a first year, and you'll be a third!"
