Born For You

Tell me what is this sweet sensation?
It's a miracle that's happened
Though I search for an explanation
Only one thing it could be –

Natsume Hyuuga was very glad that he was able to see her again. He watched her walking gracefully towards her friend, Ruka Nogi, the school's number one heartthrob. He saw Ruka smiled lovingly to her and that's when he knew that half of the girl's population in the school will cry. Ruka's heart was already taken by the beautiful girl in front of him and he never really had a chance to take it back.

Natsume silently clenched his fist. He didn't know why he suddenly felt animosity and contempt towards the certain blonde boy. Ruka was kind but it didn't really matter. He sighed. "This all began when I met her," Natsume muttered, closing his eyes, "Natsume-kun!" Mikan shouted. Natsume opened her eyes and chestnut haired girl waving at him.

He waved back and Mikan smiled at him. She held the blonde boy's hand, much to Natsume's annoyance, and dragged him towards Natsume. "Natsume-kun, I would like you to meet one of my closest friend, Ruka Nogi," Mikan said while smiling warmly at him. Natsume nodded and replied, "I know him already. He's quite famouos around here." Mikan giggled, "Of course! Ruka-pyon is really handsome."

Natsume saw Ruka blushed and he scowled. Natsume held out his hand and said, "My name is Natsume Hyuuga, Ruka-pyon." Ruka raised an eyebrow and accepted his hand. Suddenly it was really hard to breathe around them as you could feel a tension forming and growing around them. And Mikan remained oblivious of it all.

"Do you want to have lunch with us?" Mikan asked Natsume. "Lunch with you," Natsume trailed off. Mikan nodded and said, "Yes! I'm asking you to join us for lunch!"

"Well," Natsume said, trying to think of what he should do. He looked at Mikan who was waiting for his answer with anticipation. She was wearing that look that no once could resist and beside he would love to have lunch with her. "Yes, I'll go," Natsume finally answered. Mikan jumped with joy and hugged Natsume, "Thank you Natsume-kun!" Natsume blushed.

Then he felt her hug loosened. Ruka had take the initiative to unwrap her arms on him and pulled her beside him. Natsume glared lightly at Ruka in which the blonde boy returned with equal intensity. Then Ruka broke off the tense atmosphere and smiled at Mikan. "Sakura-san let's go," Ruka muttered and put his hands on Mikan's arms, leading her away.

Mikan turned around for the last time and waved at Natsume, "See you later."

Born For You

Natsume could feel everyone's stares at him. He, a poor and scholarship student, was eating with the owner's daughter and he was addressing her casually. "Maybe I should call you with a –sama?" Natsume asked. Mikan shook her head, "No, you could call me whatever you want."

"But you—" Natsume's words were cut by Mikan's finger on his lips. "Ssshh…I know that I'm the owner's daughter but it doesn't mean that I'm above you or anyone else." Mikan smiled sadly and said, "I would really appreciate it if you treat me like one of your friends, Natsume-kun."

Natsume nodded. How could he say no to her? After the delicious lunch, Ruka was called to the student council room.

Ruka Nogi, please come to the student council room immediately…

"Damn. What do they need now?" Ruka murmured while Mikan chuckled. "Go to them now Ruka-pyon. Don't worry about me! I'll be fine with Natsume-kun." Ruka snorted and muttered, "That's what I'm afraid off." Mikan frowned and asked, "What did you just say Ruka-pyon?" Ruka shook his head and replied, "Nothing Sakura-san."

"Good bye then Ruka-pyon!" Mikan smiled at Ruka. He stood up and smiled at Mikan too. Natsume smirked and said, "You better hurry now, Ruka-pyon! We don't want to keep the student council president waiting." Ruka glared at him and sped off.

Born For You

Natsume held Mikan's arms and led him to his favorite spot in the school, the Sakura Tree. They sat under it and began watching the clouds. "I envy the clouds," Mikan murmured, "They're so free and never constrict by anything."

"What do you mean by that?" Natsume asked. "All my life, I grew up obeying everything my family says. But I'm fed up now. They kept pestering me to have a reliable fiancée. I'm not ready yet. I'm still young and I don't want to be bound to someone I don't really love," Mikan said.

Natsume turned away from the clouds and looked at Mikan, saying, "Do you love Nogi?" Mikan smiled and Natsume's heart clenched. "I love Ruka-pyon…" Mikan said. Natsume could only look on the ground, feeling lost and sad all of the sudden. "…but I love him only as an irreplaceable friend." Mikan finally uttered.

Natsume's hope was renewed and he finally looked up. His face was just inches apart from Mikan. Their noses were touching and they could feel each other's breaths. "Natsume-kun," Mikan muttered. Natsume's heart beat quickened and his face turned red.

"I—I'm sorry for what I'm about to do right now," Natsume stammered huskily and captured Mikan's lips. He snaked his arms around her waist and pulled her closer to him. Mikan kissed back and her arms found its way around Natsume's neck, pulling him deeper in the kiss. Natsume laid Mikan on the grass and continued kissing her. Natsume nuzzled Mikan's neck and then kiss her again on the lips. Then his hand slipped inside her shirt, the other unbuttoning it.

Natsume broke the kiss when he felt Mikan shivered under him. She was crying. Natsume's eyes widened and get off Mikan. He saw her shirt unbuttoned, revealing her pink bra. "I'm sorry!" Natsume muttered. Mikan quickly buttoned her shirt and looked away.

"I'm sorry Mikan," Natsume said with pain in his voice. Mikan couldn't take it and held his face. "I don't want to hear the pain in your voice. I'm sorry, I was carried away too," Mikan murmured, "I-I'm just scared. I'm falling for you fast and I don't know if you'll ever catch me."

Natsume smirked and hugged Mikan, "Idiot. I'm already catching you. Don't you feel how much I like you?" Mikan smiled and hugged Natsume tight.
