A/N: I know it has been awhile since I last updated. Sorry to say that I'm stuck with piles of workload and school work. I think it would last until the semester is over :(

Thought I would post this chapter now even without re-reading the rest (too busy to do it) in honor of a friend who passed away a couple of days ago. I met her here in FFN not too long after I started posting stories. She had encouraged me, and was kind enough to offer help when I needed even if we hadn't met yet, and would never met in person anymore. She was like a thousand miles away from where I am and yet she never hesitated. And when I lost the copies of the anime we both enjoyed watching (and I still do even if I've seen it many times), and I was having a hard time to find new copies from the internet, she made it possible by sharing her copies to me. She left a message for me not too long ago, telling me that I should continue posting stories and make people happy. As long as I could, I would continue to do so, for her, for me, and for you who enjoys my stories.

I am glad and thankful that people continues to support my stories, no matter how foolish sometimes the stories get ;) Thank you folks for informing me how you like/enjoy/want more (and harass me ;) for updates. It makes posting the stories worthwhile, because really, whether I post stories or not, I do keep on writing if only for my own entertainment and to reduce the ideas swirling in my head haha ;)

Just to repeat that no, I don't own the demon president and the perverted outer space alien ;)


Chapter 8

"Ugh. What time is it?"

"It's 9 o'clock in the evening."

"Whaa! Alien?" Misaki screamed in surprise. She almost fell off the couch when she suddenly sat up. Usui was quick to steady her.

"Lay down. You should get some rest."

She stared at him as she allowed him to guide her back to laying position.

"Have you not taking care of yourself again?" He asked seriously, his eyes boring into her surprised eyes.

Instead of answering, she hesitantly raised her hands to cup his cheek.

"You're here…"

"Of course I'm here. Idiot Misaki. Making people around her worry like that," he gently chided. His eyes widened when tears pooled in her eyes, though it was belied by the smile that graced her lips.

"Idiot Takumi, making me worried like that."

Eyes tender, he leaned and rested his forehead on hers. For a moment, no words were said between them, just basking on the presence of each other. The moment ended when her stomach sounded its alarm. Chuckling at her blushing face, he pulled away to get something to eat. She watched him worriedly, so many questions racing in her head. Her questions had to wait though as he brought food for her to eat.

After he fed her, he guided her back to laying position, but she resisted.

"I…I have to go home. Mom and Suzuna will be worried."

She wanted to stay, to ask him questions. However, she didn't want her family to worry about her. She was sure that she had caused them so much worry lately. She didn't want to add more to that.

"It's okay. They know you're here."

"How did…"

"I called earlier. Ayuzawa-san said it was okay for you to stay over. She has to stay for three days on the next town for work. And your sister was staying to her friend's house for some group work," he explained at her confused expression.

Misaki's eyes widened. She looked at him, skeptical.

"She just let her daughter stay over with a perverted alien?"

"I told Ayuzawa-san that you don't feel well. If you stayed at your house, she wouldn't be able to leave because she has to take care of you. Besides…" he paused as his serious face turned playful. "This perverted alien missed his cute maid a lot. And Ayuzawa-san knows that this perverted alien is your boyfriend."

Blushing, she looked away from his piercing eyes.

"I-idiot…W-what about my change of clothes?"

"No need. I wouldn't mind having you around naked."

She punched him in response. It wasn't as hard as she wanted since she was still feeling weak. Her glare, however, could make all the men in Seika High ran away for their lives, except him of course. He was never affected by her angry glares.

"But, I thought you might not like that so I had your Mom dropped some of your things," he continued, smirking as he grabbed a bag beside the couch.

Seeing the familiar bag, she sat up, Usui watching her movement carefully like a mother hawk. She stood up, swaying a little. He was quick to steady her.

"Come on. I'll help you to the bathroom."

She was about to protest but he had already picked her up and the bag and led her to the bathroom. Before she could make a fuss, he was placing her on her feet at the tiled floor of the bathroom.

"Does Misa-chan need my help to undress?"

"Pervert…" she muttered, not really angry at his teasing when she saw the concern in his eyes. "I can use the bathroom without your help. And don't you dare stay near the bathroom!"

Chuckling, he pulled the bathroom door close and left her to her own devices.

-o-o-o-

"Hey Usui, how long since you were back?" She asked quietly, leaning on his shoulder. As usual, he had her on his lap, her struggles earlier not having any effect on escaping his arms. Not that she really wanted to get away from him at the moment. She had missed him, no matter how much she denied it from everyone, even from herself. She had missed his presence, his teasing remarks, and his annoying actions.

"Just this afternoon. I came to see my cute maid as soon as I got back."

She blushed for the nth time at his words, though she refrained from commenting. There was something that she wanted to ask, something very important. However, dreading the answer, she couldn't work up the courage to voice it out. So she remained quiet in his arms.

"What are you thinking?"

"Nothing…"

"Liar…"

He burrowed his face to her neck, causing her to shiver. When he started peppering her neck with kisses, she started to struggle in his arms.

"I swear, if you give me another hickey, I'll kill you, idiot Takumi!"

He chuckled at the vehemence in her voice, snaking his tongue out to taste her skin.

"You're delicious, Misa-chan."

"S-stop that, perverted Takumi."

As per usual, he didn't listen to her. Instead, he gave her a lick from the base of her neck to her jaw that made the hairs at her nape and arms to stand.

"Ta-takumi!"

"I want to eat you," he murmured in her ears. She gripped his arms in response. "Tell me, do you dislike this?" He asked, biting her earlobe. She inhaled sharply in response.

"D…don…t…"

"Don't what, Misaki?" He asked, licking the soft lobe that he had bitten.

"What…are you doing to me…stupid Takumi…" she said tiredly.

"Nothing that Misaki isn't doing to me."

"What? Since when did I do that to you, stupid alien?" She exclaimed, suddenly full of energy again.

"Not with your actions. Just your presence is enough to make me feel and do things that I don't usually do."

At his response, she blushed again and looked away, murmuring, "…It's not like you're not doing that to me, too."

He smiled at her honesty, pleased with her admittance. He bit her neck in response.

"Takumi! I told you not to give me any hickey!" She yelled, leaning away from him.

"It's only fair."

"What fairness are you talking about? You're the one who's being unfair here! First, with Suzuna. And then Shizuko, too. Don't give me any hickeys anymore!" She screamed at the male who only chuckled in response, much to her annoyance.

"But you gave me one, too. In fact, I don't think they could take me seriously with the teeth marks on my neck that time."

Horrified, Misaki stammered her question.

"W-who…who saw it? W-what did you say? What did they say?"

"I was bitten by a vampire wannabe," he said playfully, burrowing his face once more on her neck.

"Be serious, you idiot," she said, looking away to hide her red face from him.

"I am serious. Like I would let them know how feisty my maid is. You're mine alone."

She was taken aback by the possessiveness in his voice, and somewhat pleased. She shook her head in defeat.

"You're impossible."

"Because I'm an alien?"

"Yes, because you're an alien."

He smiled, and she smiled in return. Soon, she was giggling in his arms, and he was chuckling at her merriment. It wasn't often that the serious President did something like that so he was soaking it up. He pulled away from her neck to gaze at her giggling face.

"Kiss me, Misaki."

Laughter died down in her throat as she stared at him with huge eyes.

"Ta…ta…" she stammered, not knowing what to say. She wondered if she heard him right. However, seeing his serious expression, there was no doubt that she heard it right. Heart started to race in her chest. She gulped nervously. She started to say something again, anything, but no words formed in her lips. Fisting on his shirt, she followed what her instinct told her and slowly leaned towards his face. This was the first time that she would do this in not an impulsive manner. Once her lips were a centimeter away from his, she gulped again, then pulled away slightly. She was surprised that he didn't try to stop her. He only watched her with those intense eyes of his. Slowly, millimeter by millimeter, she closed the distance between them. And then she was kissing him. And as usual, butterflies roamed her stomach. But she didn't pull away. Instead, she moved closer to him.

She pulled away when she couldn't take the lack of air anymore. She opened her eyes to gaze at him. He had his eyes close, still savoring the kiss. Encouraged, she leaned and kissed him again, more confident this time. She was a bit surprised that he didn't take over the kiss. He was letting her control the pace.

"Takumi…"

"Misaki…"

She smiled at him even though she was blushing at her boldness. She rested her head on his shoulder after the breathtaking kiss they had shared.

"Stupid Takumi, always making me give in to his wishes."

"It's only fair. Because Misaki has me giving in to her since the moment I laid eyes on her wearing the cute maid uniform."

She giggled, a sound that he loved to hear.

"Do you have a maid fetish, perverted Takumi?"

"Now that you mention it, maybe I should make you wear a maid uniform every time you're here."

"Pervert…"

"Don't you think that's getting old, Pres?"

She paused to think, then shook her head.

"If you're not a pervert, then it wouldn't be you anymore," she stated flatly. She had faith that though he was a perverted alien, he was only showing that side to her. Never to anyone. Well, except when he was teasing Yukimura, she remembered with a grimace.

Usui chuckled at her response, placing a kiss on her hair. Even without seeing her face, he knew that she was blushing.

"How understanding."

"Sh-shut up."

"So, do you want to know what happened to me while I was away?" He asked, changing the topic out of nowhere.

She tensed in his arms. Here it was, the one thing that she wanted to know yet dreaded at the same time.

Feeling the tension rolling off her, he looked at her with concern.

"Are you alright? Did I say something wrong?"

She only shook her head. She took several breaths, bracing herself. When she felt calm enough, she said, "W-what happened then?"

Still worried about the cause of her tension, he didn't answer right away. He tried to read her expression, but it was hard with her not looking at him.

"How about lots of kisses in exchange of the story?"

She gripped his hand hard before finally meeting his eyes with her annoyed ones. He raised his brows at her, waiting for an answer.

"You…you…you really piss me off, idiot Takumi!" She said with irritation. Why couldn't he just be direct with it?

"If Misa-chan is not interested, then we should get some rest. You still aren't feeling well."

Before she could move, he had her lying on the couch, covered with a blanket. He kissed her forehead and then walked away.

"W-where do you think you're going, stupid Takumi?" She asked angrily, sitting up.

'How dare him to trick me like that?'

"Going to sleep. Unless Misa-chan wants me to sleep beside her," he teased, turning the lights off then lying on his makeshift bed on the floor somewhere near the window, a couple of meters away from her. He had just laid down when she stormed to him, dropped on her knees beside him, and grabbed his shirt forcefully.

"You…you…"

She was at a loss for words in her anger, much to his amusement.

"Yes?"

His amusement only enraged her further.

"Shut up!"

She slapped him once, then leaned down to kiss him angrily. Unlike before, however, he took over the kiss completely. Her world tilted as he shifted their position and her back touched the hard floor. Everything happened with his lips fused with hers.

Misaki's angry kisses soon softened and when she felt his tongue on her lips, she gasped in surprised. He immediately took advantage of the situation and plunged his tongue inside her mouth. Her tongue touched his, and they both moaned at the contact. For some time, their tongue danced against each other, before he explored the insides of her mouth. They pulled away to breathe in the necessary air, then went back to their game. They did it for several times, before he decided that he wanted to explore some more. He rained open mouthed kisses to her checks, her ear, down to her jaw, and further down to her neck. All the while, their bodies tangled together. He had one hand on her nape, the other touching her arms. She had one hand fisted on his hair, the other clutching his shoulder.

"You're so sweet," he murmured on her skin.

She heard his words, but it seemed distant. Her mind was blank. She couldn't think of anything except of Usui and the things that he was doing to her, the sensations he was evoking from her. No trace of resistance crossed her mind as she enjoyed the moment. So instead of answering, she pulled him closer to her, as if it was still possible.

He caressed the expose skin of her arms, from the back of her hand all the way to her shoulders. He did it for several times, loving the shivers he evoked to her. His lips, ever searching, ever wandering, had reached her collarbone. But it didn't go any further from there. Even if he wanted to, he knew that he shouldn't. Not yet. He wasn't ready yet. She wasn't ready, too.

"Misaki…"

He placed small kisses all the way up to her lips, before he pulled away.

"Don't…stop…"

He groaned at her words and at how sexy it sounded in his ears. He kissed her again, seeking entrance in her mouth, and when it was granted, he kissed her thoroughly.

When he finally pulled away, their loud breathing filled the room.

"You're mine, Misaki…" he whispered possessively.

"Yours, Takumi…" she murmured dazedly.

He smiled, and through the faint light of the moon shining through his windows, he could see just how alluring she looked. He was smug to see that her lips looked thoroughly kiss, a bit swollen from his kisses, and her hair was a mess, but sexy at the same time. And the way her chest heaved with every breath she took…

His eyes widened when he realized something. If he wasn't already red from all the exertion that they had done, he would be when he realized something that he should have earlier. Her soft breasts were pressed on his hard chest, more so every time she exhaled. He gulped nervously, trying to fight off the excitement that instantly made him hard, all over again. If she had failed to notice it before, then she surely would now that they were just staying in each others' arms, pressed so close, only the thin clothes serving as barrier between them.

"About my absence…"

He paused when he felt her tensed. Frowning, he stared at her eyes, holding her face as she tried to look away. The worry that he felt distracted him from other thoughts. Her well-being was the only thing that mattered in his mind at the moment.

"About that, I went to England."

Her eyes widened.

"I wanted to stay by your side, so I made a deal with my family in exchange of not transferring to Miyabigaoka," he said softly, seriously.

She was speechless as she gaped at him. She tried to say something, but didn't know what to say. His laughter at her expression snapped her out of it. Her eyes flashed at him, before it turned into concerned ones.

"What's the deal?"

"For Misaki to be mine forever."

"Be serious!"

"I'm serious."

"…"

When she tried to get away from him, he tightened his embrace.

"It's not that important at the moment. For now, I want to savor the feel of Misaki in my arms," he said, getting serious.

Those words effectively stopped her attempts of escape.

"Here, with you in my arms, I could forget about everything. Staying with Misaki at Seika, being together, it's the most important thing to me. So please, stay by my side, Ayuzawa Misaki."

"If I let you out of my side, who knows what you would do to those helpless women that could easily be deceived by you, perverted outer-space alien. Are you sure you want to be stuck with me? I'm only giving you one chance to say no," she warned, her hands going around him, hugging him to her.

"Is that a threat? Should I run away screaming?" He asked with a chuckle.

She joined him, thinking about the sight of Usui running away from her, screaming.

"I can't imagine it."

"Because it's not going to happen. Are you sure about your decision, my cute maid? I'm only giving you one chance."

"If that's the case, then I should grab my chance," she murmured in his ears, feigning struggles from his arms.

He chuckled and held on tighter.

"Like I would let you. Haven't I already said before? I won't let you run away from me."

"Because you're an idiot."

"And you're in love with an idiot. What does that make you then?"

"Hmm…let me think about it tomorrow. For now, can I get some sleep? I'm so tired already. And it's your fault, remember that, Usui Takumi."

Still chuckling, he rolled off her, then collected her in his arms. She didn't struggle from his embrace. Instead, she burrowed her face on his neck, mumbling a sleepy goodnight on his skin.

"Misaki…"

"Hmm…"

"Did you cut your hair?"

"What hair?"

His laughter brought her out of sleepiness.

"I…there's nothing funny about it, pervert. Aoi-chan wanted to do makeover for me but I can't take it."

"It must have been a sight, the two of you fighting each other."

"Stop laughing and be a good pillow, idiot."

"I love you, Misaki."

"Hmp… Love you, too, idiot Takumi."

They both sighed blissfully. Enclosed in each others' warm embrace, they felt totally at home, contented with the knowledge that they would still be together for awhile before finally facing other things about their relationship.

Before Misaki finally lost the battle to sleep, she said something more that made Usui smile tenderly as he gave her a kiss on her forehead.

"Maybe giving in to you isn't so bad at all."

A/N: There you go. Thanks to all of you who reviewed this story. I'm glad to know that you find the story worthwhile to read. I have in mind the sequel to this story, about our favorite pair's moments during their senior year. It's a light/fluffy one. I can even let you know the title now – Takumi and Misaki's Alphabet. By the word alphabet, you can guess that it has 26 chapters. Seeing as the manga is hinting difficult times for the pair, I'd like to have reprieve from that by making my own happy scenes for the couple.

I've been drafting the Alphabet every chance I got. I've written several chapters already. My practice, however, is not to post a story until I have the draft of the entire thing because I would feel really bad if I suddenly drop the story. Having the entire thing drafted pretty much ensures that I would finish posting the story until the end. There was only one exception that I broke that practice. That one exception was made possible because I have pretty much bulleted the topic/scenes I wanted until the end of that Alphabet story. Now that I'm both working and studying, time to write is pretty much sparse (like I said, I'm drowning with paper works :( While the style of Alphabet is like one-shots, you couldn't read the following chapters without reading the previous chapters. I've made connections to every chapter.

Besides being busy and lazy, I can't neglect the folks that I know are waiting for me to post a story in the first anime/manga I have most of my fanfics written. I am going to write something for them, too. That's where I met the friend I am telling you about.

Well, that's quite a long A/N, don't you think? I'm known for that haha ;)

By folks! Until next time!
