A/N: Alright, this is for my very best friend and beta, Natalie, A.K.A. KeikoTakishita. She is the author of Digimon Frontier Refreshed and The Begining Of Forever, which together make up a story that would make anyone a fan of Digimon. I myself was not a Digimon fan, but I read her story anyway, and now I can say I am a fan, or at least a fan of the universe with Takuya, Kouji, and company. This one shot revolves around Kouji and the O.C. of the story, Keiko, who I believe is one of the most loved characters in Natalie's fic. I hope everyone likes this tribute to KeikoTakishita's story, and please review.
"Keiko, what's your favorite thing in the whole world?"
"I like flowers…"
"Keiko, slow down!
"You'll have to catch me first, Kouji!"
Keiko stuck her tongue out at the raven headed boy who was running after her. Her Sunday dress was floating behind her, and her stockings were getting torn by the little straw plants and wild flowers in the humongous, beautifully colored field. The two had just tried going to church for the first time, just for the hell of it. Keiko felt enlightened by the experience, but Kouji was not so eager to be convinced. He didn't want to just jump on the whole Christianity bandwagon without learning about it more first.
Kouji was on Keiko's tail now, squinting his eyes because of the golden sun that was shining that day. The sky was so blue it was indescribable, and the clouds resembled fluffy white cotton balls. Kouji gave up on trying to keep his church slacks clean in order to pick up his pace. In fact, he kicked off his loafers so that he could sprint faster after Keiko.
Keiko's brown hair was glistening in the burning sunlight. She seemed to be glowing like a heavenly angel. Kouji finally caught the girl, tackling her to the ground. They were engulfed by the flowers as they hit the soft field floor. Kouji was on top of her, pinning her down while she tried to escape. The poor girl gave up resisting being held down, and couldn't stop laughing.
"You're such a grump! Why can't you ever enjoy the moment?" Keiko asked, giggles lacing her words. Kouji rolled his eyes.
"Because," he began, his eyes narrowing. "I don't like you just randomly running off on me."
Keiko shifted in the flowers a bit. A ladybug landed on Kouji's nose. The brunette burst out laughing again. Kouji crossed his eyes and noticed the bug on his nose. He immediately started swatting at it in a panic. Kouji didn't like bugs.
"Kouji, stop! It's just a ladybug."
"Well I don't want it on me," the boy grumbled. Keiko frowned.
"You are such a drag today," she said in a confronting tone.
Kouji sighed and smiled lightly. "I'm sorry. I guess the church thing is still setting in. I can't believe you convinced me to go," he said, tucking a piece of hair behind her ear. The girl smiled with her teeth, which shone in the light.
"It's just something new, y'know? And besides, maybe it can help you. I'm not forcing it on you or anything, though," she said reassuringly.
"I know," Kouji said, nodding. He took a deep breath and got off of Keiko, taking a place next to her on his back.
Kouji had been through a lot in the past three years. He had become addicted to partying and hookups, and took his drinking way overboard. All his friends tried to tell him that he was out of control, but it took him a while to decide that he wanted to change his life around. He and Keiko were seventeen now, and Kouji was living life as a healthy person, but still had his grumpy side.
"Keiko, can I tell you something?"
"Hn?" The brunette now had her eyes closed, soaking in the glorious rays of heaven.
"Well, when I always think of a person, I associate them with an object or scent." He smiled to himself shyly. "Like with Takuya, its pizza, and with Izumi, it's some expensive smelling perfume. But with you, its straight up… Flowers…" He turned his head to the side to look into her aquamarine eyes. The girl smiled, and placed a hand on Kouji's cheek.
"Really." Kouji scooted closer to the brunette, and pressed his forehead to hers.
"I love you," Keiko whispered, feeling a daisy tickle her cheek.
"It never gets old to hear that, Kei," Kouji replied, and lightly pressed his lips to his lover's. She responded shyly, moving her lips smoothly against his.
They had dating for about a year now, after Kouji's taste in women started to change. He went from boners for blonde bombshells, to his heart racing for petite, natural looking girls. Keiko had broken up with her boyfriend Tamotsu about a year and a half prior, and shortly after realized who she wanted even more than the athletic blonde. She wanted good old cold hearted Kouji, who really wasn't cold hearted at all.
Keiko reached behind her boyfriend's head and slyly took the hair tie out of his raven locks. His silky hair fell out of his usual ponytail, cascading over his shoulders. Kouji pulled his lips away from Keiko's.
"Why," he began with a smirk, "must you always take my hair down when we're having a moment?"
"Because, Kouji, you… You look like…and angel or something with your hair down. You look so… natural," Keiko whispered.
"That sounds so fruity," Kouji said with a laugh. Keiko pouted her lips.
"I'm just kidding. For you, I'll leave my hair down," Kouji said in a compromising tone. The aquamarine eyed girl smiled and ran her hands through his hair. She closed her eyes again and breathed in the flowers.
It was absolutely perfect, lying there with no one else around. The light breeze tossed the couples' hair around lightly. Kouji found Keiko's lips again, and began kissing her, more passionately this time around. Dandelions were being carried by the breeze, and seemed to fly with the butterflies through the field. Keiko wrapped her arms around Kouji's neck and pulled herself closer to him. He brought his hands to her shoulders, and slowly ran them down her sides, stopping at her waist. Keiko's cheeks reddened a bit as he wrapped his arms around her waist and placed his hands on her butt. Kouji pulled away a millimeter.
"You," he said, pecking her briefly on the lips, "still," another peck, "get flustered," one more slightly longer kiss, "when I touch you anywhere below the waist."
Keiko looked down, blushing.
Kouji ran his hands down the back of her legs, down to the hem of her dress. Keiko's cheeks turned scarlet as his hands began traveling up her legs, under her dress. He began fingering one of the holes in her stockings that was on the upper thigh.
"Stop teasing me, Kouji," Keiko said sternly. Kouji smirked and began kissing her again, more aggressively than the time before. She matched his level of aggression pulling him on top of her. His hands left her legs and came up to her chest where she had a sweater covering her yellow sundress. He unbuttoned it and opened it up, revealing her soft skin. She shrugged it off without her lips leaving his. He began kissing down her body, resting at the nape of her neck a nibbling it a little. The brunette giggled. He drew back and looked into her eyes.
"You taste like flowers, Keiko. But in a good way," he said with a laugh. She smiled thoughtfully, but kept staring at his eyes.
"Kouji…" She pressed a palm to his cheek. "This flower field is beautiful… And you are beautiful… This is the kind of place…" She stopped there, remembering that she really was talking out loud.
"This is the kind of place…?" Kouji echoed, waiting for Keiko to finish her sentence.
Keiko fidgeted. "It's nothing. Forget I said anything," she said with a nervous chuckle. Kouji eyed her for a moment.
And then he knew what she was getting at.
He began kissing her again, trailing down to her chest and running his hands down her arms. She lightly brushed some pollen off his cheek, then moved her lips to kiss a spot on his face.
"You," he began in a light whisper, "want to lose it here, don't you?"
Keiko stiffened up, feeling more uncomfortable than ever. She tried to avoid Kouji's eyes, but he kept moving her chin so that her face was forced to look at his deep glossy orbs. Her heart was beating out of her chest.
"Do you?" he asked in a serious, yet excited tone. Keiko sighed and nodded shyly.
Kouji's breathing became heavier as he brought his lips to her ear.
"I'd be glad to do you such a pleasure, Miss Takishita," he whispered, blowing cool air into her ear.
Keiko groaned and let out a soft "Okay".
Kouji brought his hands down to the hem of her dress again, and lifted it up slowly, revealing her attractive legs which were still covered with the ripped stockings. As he worked on slipping them down and off of her, Keiko was cutely untying the ravenette's tie.
Kouji's tie and shirt along with Keiko's stockings, sweater, and panties were in a neat pile on top of some wildflowers, next to the intimate couple. The only sounds were that of birds, the breeze, and the couple's in sync heavy breathing. After a few moments, Keiko let out a strong gasp.
"Do you want me to slow down?" Kouji murmured, kissing the brunette's neck. Keiko looked slightly in pain, but shook her head, indicating for him to go the speed he was at.
"Just don't go too much faster just yet," she said in a breathy voice.
The butterflies were dancing through the field, flying in little circles, looking for mates. The birds were singing lovely songs, setting a sweet mood. Kouji had his shirt off, but his pants were still on for the most part. Keiko's sundress was pulled up above her waist, but still covering her chest. She wiggled her bare toes in the weeds and growth of the field, feeling the earth under her skin.
"Hnnn… Kouji…" Keiko moaned.
"You okay?" he asked, tucking some of her hair away from her face that now had a thin glaze of sweat. Keiko's eyelashes fluttered a bit as she encouraged the boy to go faster. Kouji picked up his pace, and Keiko began to squirm and make more sensual noises.
"I…think something is coming…" she whispered, breathing heavier now. Her back arched off the ground as she let out another moan.
"Hah, you mean cumming?" Kouji joked.
The brunette had her orgasm first, and right after that, Kouji began to get into the heat as well.
"Guhh… Kei…" He gripped her thighs, digging his nails into them a bit.
"You alright, baby?" she asked, pulling him into a short kiss. His skin was looking a bit red, but Keiko didn't know whether it was a sunburn or from his excitement.
"Yeah… I'm okay…" He was pulling on Keiko's hips, causing him to go deeper into her. Keiko let out a soft squeak, but let him.
"Sorry I ever said Izumi was hotter than you back in the day…" he groaned, sweat dripping from his forehead. Keiko blushed a bit and frowned.
"Why are you saying this?" she breathed.
"Because." He kissed her so forcefully that their teeth clashed. "You're the hottest, sexiest, cutest, most beautiful and perfect girl I've ever met." He let out a loud moan that almost sounded painful. "And I love you more than I could've loved anyone else." He gritted his teeth, and pulled out.
The sun was setting now, and the couple was curled up in each other's arms.
Crickets were chirping, and signs of nightlife were becoming apparent.
"Kouji… That was amazing…" Keiko said, a bit shaky. She had pulled her sweater back on, and Kouji was now wearing his shirt. Kouji kissed her on the forehead and rubbed her back soothingly.
"Anything for you, Aerith," he said with a wink. Keiko stuck her tongue out at him.
"Oh, shut up Neji."
Kouji tickled her sides, causing the girl to squirm in a fit of giggles. Keiko's eyes were reflecting a bit of orange in her aquamarine eyes. They looked like pools of fire.
The sun was totally set over the horizon now, and the two decided to get the rest of their clothes and head toward the car.
"Thanks for this wonderful day, Kouji…and thank you for… being my first…" Keiko whispered. Kouji smiled at her and squeezed her hand. The ravenette blushed, feeling a warmth inside his heart that he could not quite explain. The two remained quiet for a while, until they got to the car.
"If we had a kid, it should be named Steve Staley Minamoto."
Kouji narrowed his eyes, got in the car and locked the door. Keiko was laughing her ass off as Kouji started the engine and began slowly driving the car away.
"Kouji! No wait! I swear, I'm kidding!" the girl said, doubling over in a fit of laughter. Kouji couldn't help but smile and unlocked the door for the Keiko. She got in the car and they drove off, and they would never forget that special day, where they made love in the field.
It truly was the beginning of forever.
