Normal is the story

I hate feeling like this

I'm so tired of trying to fight this

I'm asleep and all I dream of

Is waking to you

L sat in his usual crouched position, watching Light with and intense eye. Light was a suspect, but he was just… well, for lack of a better word, L found him to be the most gorgeous -on the outside- creature he'd ever laid his eyes on. L didn't think that he was capable of emotions such as love, spending so many years of his life attempting to become immune to them all, but now, staring at Light, he found all of his efforts to be in vain. He rarely slept, even less now, just so that he could watch Light like this without worrying that the other would respond with a violent demeanor.

Tell me that you will listen

Your touch is what I'm missing

And the more I hide I realize I'm slowly losing you

In the morning, the raven haired detective went about waking Light up, showering and getting dressed, acting as if everything was normal, which it wasn't. L was distracted from everything. Even sweets couldn't capture his attention enough to keep him from thinking about Light.

Light was slowly distancing himself from L, and L acted like he didn't notice. He went along with it, seeing what was happening, and he knew that he was loosing the Light he was friends with little by little.

Comatose

I'll never wake up without an overdose of you

I don't wanna live, I don't wanna breathe

'Less I feel you next to me

You take the pain I feel

(Waking up to you never felt so real)

Light lay in bed that night, painfully aware of the black eyes set on him. It was such torture not to just flip over, and ask the other not to stare at him like he had been doing for the past week, just to see the pink tinge that was sure to appear over L's nose and cheeks. He'd made L blush on a small number of times, and it never got old, or less adorable. Light had accepted the fact that he liked the other detective, and deep within he knew that L was the only person on Earth that had the potential to stop him through sheer emotional effect, and not just the smarts to throw him in a cell.

I don't wanna sleep, I don't wanna dream

'Cause my dreams don't comfort me

The way you make me feel

(Waking up to you never felt so real)

So Light stayed up, feeling L's gaze on his back, daydreaming about what would happen if L liked him as a lover.

I hate living without you

Dead wrong to ever doubt you

But my demons lay in waiting

Tempting me away

L was losing it. Light had cut himself off almost completely, and L was missing him more than he thought possible. Light' percentage of being Kira was raising by another point virtually each day, and L was trying to pull himself together enough to be able to convict Light when the time came. He was dreading the time that was inevitable lurking around, just waiting for an opportunity to show itself. He had consented that he was in love with the younger, so watching him get executed would be pure torture, especially with the knowledge that it was by his hand.

Oh, how I adore you

Oh, how I thirst for you

Oh, how I need you

He needed Light, and know it or not, Light needed him just the same, to save him from the looming darkness of being Kira.

Comatose

I'll never wake up without an overdose of you

I don't wanna live, I don't wanna breathe

'Less I feel you next to me

You take the pain I feel

(Waking up to you never felt so real)

Light flipped over that night to face L, opening his eyes to the raven unhurriedly. "Mm, why are you staring?" Light asked the question that was gnawing at the corners of his mind, not the most predominate, 'Do you love me?!' Just as suspected, L's face heated up, and a pinkish shade crept across. He immediately looked away, refusing to meet Light's caramel gaze. "I wasn't," he muttered, still averting his eyes.

"You were," Light said idly, as if it didn't matter to him. Which, in retrospect, it didn't really.

"Just, go back to sleep," L said hurriedly.

I don't wanna sleep, I don't wanna dream

'Cause my dreams don't comfort me

The way you make me feel

(Waking up to you never felt so real)

"I'm not tired anymore," Light said, sitting up and holding L's face in his hand, forcing him to look at him. L squeezed his wide eyes shut in slight embarrassment. "Come on, now. Open your eyes and look at me," Light coaxed gently.

Breathing life, waking up

My eyes open up

L opened his eyes slowly and Light smiled. "Now was it that hard?" Light asked. "I'm not mad or anything."

"But…" L started to no avail, because Light stopped him, placing a chaste kiss on the other boy's pale lips.

Comatose

I'll never wake up without an overdose of you

I don't wanna live, I don't wanna breathe

'Less I feel you next to me

You take the pain I feel

(Waking up to you never felt so real)

As Light pulled back, L pressed up against Light, connecting their mouths once more, this time in a more passionate manner. Light moaned slightly, a low rumble in the back of his throat, and L relished the sound, slipping his tongue between Light's parted lips in an attempt to hear more. Light pulled backwards, falling back onto the pile of pillows behind him.

I don't wanna sleep, I don't wanna dream

'Cause my dreams don't comfort me

The way you make me feel

(Waking up to you never felt so real)

L followed the warm boy, resting his head on Light's chest, listening to the steady heartbeat beneath the skin. "I love you," L murmured, his voice muffled by Light's shirt.

"I love you, too," Light kissed L's forehead before lying back down against the bedding.

L listened to Light's breathing slow as he fell asleep, and it left L to muse on about his knew relationship with the one person that he could feel emotion towards.

Oh, how I adore you

(Waking up to you never felt so real)

Oh, how I thirst for you

(Waking up to you never felt so real)

Oh, how I adore you

The way you make me feel

(Waking up to you never felt so real)
