This is my first Death Note fanfiction...so please be nice and stuff. ^.^
So, this is basically going to be a collection of one-shots about Wammy's Boys and their days at the orphanage. It's also going to include MelloXMatt, so if you don't like yaoi, or the pairing don't come flaming to me.
DISCLAIMER: I own nothing from Death Note...anything I do own is most likely stolen from my friends...
WARNING: FLUFF...YAOI...PROBABLY SOME SMUT...
I'll also include their ages at the beginning at each one-shot, as they will change with each one...
AGES: Mello - 13, Matt - 13, Near - 11
He was not happy. In fact he was far from happy.
Mello was downright pissed.
Not only had Roger confiscated all of his chocolate and not only had he been banned from eating any chocolate for the day but Mello had just discovered a very terrifying thing. It was scarier than any horror story L had ever told him and scarier than any fear he could think of. It was actually ridiculous to consider it as a fear, but fuck...did the very thought of it shake him to the core...
His Matt had given someone a Valentine's Day present.
Not only that, but that someone had given his Matt a Valentine as well.
That certain someone was probably Number 1 on Mello's hit-list, with no pun intended, and the very last person on Mello's list of people that he liked.
Who was that person?
That fluffy-haired, pale-as-a-ghost, toy playing know-it-all had given his Matt a Valentine present. A fucking Valentine's Day present! The blonde sorely hoped that Near didn't have some unrequited crush on his gamer. He hoped even harder that the 'unrequited crush' wasn't reciprocated. Fuck! Matt had given Near a present!
Did Mello get a present?
Nope. Not from Matt and certainly not from Near. Although, that being said...if he had been given one from Near, he most likely would have burned it...and then sent the ashes back to him in a box labeled try harder next time dipshit!
Still, he hated to admit it but...it hurt. Near got a present from Matt, but did Mello?
Matt's best friend in the entire world...did he get a present?
No...not even a card. Not even a 'Happy Valentine's Day Mello'.
Matt had practically blanked him all day.
So as revenge, he had ignored Matt all morning and all afternoon. That should have taught him a lesson! If it hadn't...well Mello could survive well enough without him for a few more days.
Currently though, he was stood outside Matt's door, deciding on whether to walk straight in and confront him, walk straight in and ignore him or walk straight past to his own room. He weighed up the options in his mind...the third one would make him sound like a coward and he certainly was not a coward! The first one was very tempting, but he reminded himself that he was trying to keep his emotions in check and that included anger and annoyance as well.
So...walking in and ignoring him it was then.
Mello twisted the handle and sauntered into the room, not bothering to knock or make his presence known. He noticed Matt on the floor, leaning against his bed playing on the Gameboy he had for years and on the new game he had gotten for Christmas.
From Mello too.
The blonde glared at the hand-held console slightly and walked stiffly to the bed and flinging himself down onto it. Silence fell between them, with nothing but the odd beep and bloop coming from Matt's game. Mello was chewing on lip, itching to say something to Matt and was dying for even the smallest piece of chocolate. He sighed and ran a hand through his hair. It just wasn't fair...
The silence stretched on and on, for what seemed like hours (five minutes) and Mello was definitely starting to feel the symptoms of Chocolate Withdrawal. Matt still hadn't said anything to him. Although, considering he was stuck in his game and was probably going to stay like that for a few more hours, Mello didn't really expect anything other than that.
Feeling bored and slightly put out, Mello began to heave himself up, but fell back down when something hit him in the chest.
Glaring at the back of Matt's head, Mello picked up the thing that had hit him and inspected it.
It was a chocolate heart. A Thornton's chocolate heart.
His eyes widened as he slowly unwrapped the heavenly goodness and was about to bite into it, when he stopped and narrowed his eyes suspiciously at Matt's head. The gamer still had his back to him and he was still hypnotized by his game.
"What's this for?" He asked genuinely curious and slightly on edge.
"To stop you sulking," Matt murmured simply.
"I was not sulking!"
"Of course you weren't..."
The blonde growled and bit deep into the chocolate with annoyance. He mentally moaned at the creamy and smooth taste of it. Matt had perfect taste when it came to chocolate, something that Mello was ever so grateful for. He swallowed hard and tilted his head to the side, still staring at the back of Matt's head.
"When did you buy it?"
"Today...and I didn't buy it. You know I don't have any money...the shop owner was practically blind too. I walked in, grabbed it and walked out," Matt said, with a slight hint of pride in his voice.
Mello smirked and tutted. Matt had become quite the thief in the last year or so. The gamer had become skilled at what he did and it was a talent that Mello both admired and appreciated.
"If Roger found out you were stealing again, he'd confiscate all your games, you know. And how did you get it today, I thought Roger had 'grounded' you?"
"Roger needs to learn that I don't need a door to leave this place and I don't listen to instructions well. Plus he isn't going to find out I've nicked anything...is he?"
"My lips are sealed...as long as you keep on bringing the goods. Which reminds me...why did you nick it for me?"
Matt sighed and stretched out as he paused his game. He turned around and folded his arms on the bed, facing Mello with a knowing smirk. The blonde hated that shit-eating smirk...it most likely meant that he was going to get 'owned' by whatever Matt said next.
"Because, you looked quite jealous when you saw Near give me that 'present' today..."
Mello's eyes flashed and he glared hard at the red head in front of him. Fuck...he had gotten owned.
"I was not fucking jealous. Why would Near give you a present anyway? Even worse is that you gave him one in return...before me as well! Why?"
...yeah, because that didn't scream jealous at all. Matt scoffed and shook his head with amusement.
"Near had received that game off some girl who liked him. He gave it to me, seeing as I'm the only one he knows well enough that plays games and I thought I'd give him something in return."
"Mello, we don't do Valentine's day remember? Never have before, so how was I supposed to know that you wanted a present this year?"
"You gave one to NEAR of all people!"
"Yeah, because he gave one to me first! Have you gotten me anything?"
Matt had gotten him there.
Mello flushed and looked down guiltily. He broke off a piece of chocolate and held it out to Matt with sheepish smile. The red head rolled his eyes and climbed onto the bed, accepting the chocolate given to him. They sat in a heavy silence, with Mello trying to push down his feeling of guilt and Matt slowly nibbling at the piece of chocolate, he had ever-so-generously been given.
"So...does this make me your Valentine?" Mello said after a while.
"I guess...if you want to be..." Matt replied.
Mello eyed him slyly and smirked as he crawled and all fours towards the gamer. He leant up to Matt's face and tilted his head to the side. Matt couldn't help the smirk that bloomed on his face but bit down the chuckle that was desperate to erupt from his throat. Mello always knew how to act in certain situations.
"You still gave Near a Valentine though...does Matt love Near?" He asked with feigned curiosity. Mello almost seemed innocent...almost...
Matt grimaced and pushed the blonde away a little.
"Okay, first off, it wasn't even a Valentine...it was a bear I nicked off some stall that looked exactly like him. Fluffy hair and everything. Second, don't ever use the words: 'Matt', 'love' and 'Near' in the same sentence ever again!...Unless you're going to say: 'Matt doesn't love Near, because he loves Mello...even if Mello is a jealous little fucker who has to have everything his own way!'"
Mello's smirk grew as he reached up and kissed Matt hard on the lips.
"So, Matt loves Mello, huh?"
"Duh. And stop speaking in third person...it's freaking me out!"
Mello chuckled and fell back onto the bed. He took another bite of chocolate as he heard the beeps and bloops coming from Matt's game. The Status Quo had been restored and all was right with the world again. He observed the chocolate in his hands and smiled. Chocolate always seemed to taste best when it came from Matt...
"...we should do Valentine's day again...it's fun..." He commented.
"Yeah, yeah whatever..."
Mello smiled and ate another piece of chocolate.
"Oh! And if you ever give Near a present again, I'm throwing your Gameboy out of the window."
"Yeah, yeah whatever..."
I love MelloXMatt...it's become a whole new obsession for me, ever since I started to watch the anime!
Seriously, my friends couldn't believe I had never watched it before and forced me down to watch most of the episodes over the course of two days. I fell in love with it automatically! ^.^
So...perty, perty please review! Tell me what's good and what needs improving! ^.^
