A/N: Yes. Another chapter. Came to me right now! Oh plot bunnies. Giving me ideas for stuff. They can be really useful and really annoying. So, this is from Kouichi's POV. Once again, I don't own the characters. I'm just borrowing! Also, again, they may be OOC. Enjoy!
"Kouichi, what's wrong?" Koji asked me. I had been thinking about what Crusadermon had told me, and apparently I had been looking sad again.
"Nothing, really," I replied, with a slightly forced smile. I was happy Koji was worrying about me, but at the same time, I didn't want him to worry.
A few days later
I couldn't sleep that well, so I happened to heard Takuya someone something. I wasn't paying a lot of attention. After a few minutes, I heard Takuya snoring, and decided to wait for a few minutes before trying. Finally, when I decided to get up, I was still thinking about the new info I had. When I got a little bit heard it.
"Hey bro." Koji said. I jumped and fell to the ground. Why was Koji up?
"Oh! Hi Koji! What are you doing up?" I asked, embarrassed
"It's my turn for watch. What are you doing up?" Koji asked, concerned.
"I couldn't sleep. I was thinking about something," I muttered, not really wanting to tell him. Please Koji, don't pry.
"Do you want to tell me?" he asked, sounding like he was really hoping I would. I shook my head. Please stop prying Koji! Please! I noticed that he had gotten up from the fire and had started to walk toward me. I stared and was wondering what Koji was doing. As soon as he was withing arms reach of me, Koji knelt down and hugged me. I tensed up, because it was a surprise hug, but when I realized how nice it felt, I relaxed. I realized that this was my first hug in years. That realization set me off, because I started quietly sobbing. After a few minutes, I just started to spill my guts. I told Koji about how Crusadermon told me I was just a spirit, and that I don't know how I came to the Digital world, but I was still worried. When I started crying, Koji started to comfort me, but when I started talking, he drew me closer and hugged me tighter.
He tried to comfort me even more by telling me "Kouichi, don't listen to Crusadermon, ok? It's just trying to mess with you." I silently nodded. Soon, Koji realized something. I didn't want him to let go of me, and I doubt he wanted to let go.
Koji eventually muttered in my ear "Kouichi, I'll be right back. I just have to wake up Zoe, then I'll be back, ok?"
I murmured "Ok." After he manged to get Zoe up. He came back. He then asked me quietly "Hey, how are you holding up? Anything I can do?"
"Better now. But there is one thing you can do..." I replied quietly.
"What is it?" Koji replied, in a tone that made it clear that he really wanted to know.
"Would you give me another hug?" I shyly asked, not sure he would and embarrassed that I asked the question.
Koji, thankfully, said happily "Yes! Of course!" We hugged again, and fell asleep like that. It was the greatest night's sleep I ever had.
A/N: Well, there you go. "Koichi's Hug" in it's full glory. Now the plot bunnies for this story will leave me alone!
