Author's Note:
So I am currently on my third playthrough of Persona 3 Portable; during my first playthrough I goofed and missed one of the lover flags for Akihiko, so I contented myself with Shinji and Ryoji. During my second playthrough, I finally got it, and um, IT WAS THE CUTEST THING EVER! D: I am, quite honestly, torn between Aki and Shinji, though, because I love both of them so very much and the fact that I got to date both of them was SO AWESOME. (Although I felt guilty cheating on Akibby so I abstained from loving up Shinjibby during my second playthrough.) Uh, anyways.

Basically, Minako is the cutest thing evvveer, and I haaaad to write this because the NG+ ending with Akihiko totally broke my heart.

The First Hour

Opening Song: "Her Morning Elegance" - Oren Lavie

"You look so tired. Have you been getting enough sleep?" His voice carries a soft tone, tinted with a hint scolding but mostly loving concern. She doesn't answer, only smiles as she inclines her head further, allowing it to rest against his chest. She can feel the soft beat of his heart, the even rise and fall of his chest. She feels her fatigue growing, but she isn't ready to sleep yet.

"Everyone's coming," he mumbles, and she giggles because she can feel the words humming through his chest. "Everyone remembers now." He's holding her in his lap, both arms wrapped around her, enveloping her in his warmth. He presses his lips against her hair and smiles.

"Why don't you close your eyes for a minute?" She leans her head back to look up at him through heavy lids. He's smiling at her in a way that instantly brings a grin to her face, and she reaches up to brush her fingers against his cheek. He leans into her touch and closes his own eyes. She can feel the sleep taking over her, and as much as she wants to stay awake, she knows she can't. When he opens his eyes, she's still looking up at him, but her own eyes are slowly closing.

"I love you, Aki," she murmurs.

Her lids finally slide over her eyes when she feels him kiss her forehead.

"Starting now, we'll never be apart."

Closing Song: "Fairytale" - Alexander Rybak


This is kiiiinda a drabble set, though I'm planning posting twenty-five parts (a ha ha, hence the title), and they'll be a bit longer than this. There'll be snippets from Akihiko and Minako's relationship and whatnot. Because this is the only way I'll get over the heart break of Akihiko losing everything he's ever loved. ; w;

Reviews, please? :D
