Monkey King and his Prince

Chapter 1- Summer Nap

Shifting on his feet, the three and a half Ryoma Echizen stares helplessly at dark blue eyes of the older boy standing in front of him. The boy asks seriously taking in the small bruise on the pale cherubic cheek, "What happen, Ryo?"

"Nothing Kei" Ryoma answers softly, unable to move his eyes away from his friend.

Keigo nods before looking around until his dark blue eyes land on the group of boys near his age, five going on six laugh their heads off throwing a very familiar hat. The same hat that his best friend hardly takes off as it is. It's a gift from his father if he remembers correctly. He smiles softly turning to the boy who stares more sadly at the group tossing his beloved hat around.

"I'll get it back for you and a can of juice." the boy promise the younger who turns to him eyes wide with joy and hope.

"Really?" Ryoma ask softly shifting slightly before hugging Keigo, "Could it be Ponta?"

The dark gray hair boy nods stalking towards the group. They hurt his little Ryoma-chan. They cause him to resort to tears. No he, Keigo Atobe isn't one happy boy until he sees Ryoma Echizen smile. He taps the older boy's shoulder who turn to look at him with annoy expression.

"What do you want Atobe?" the auburn hair boy ask haughtily flicking the cap in his hands.

"I want that hat, Thomas." Keigo growls darkly hating the boy before him more, Thomas Yakima a royal pain in his side ever since his father join the board.

"Why should I give this hat to you?" Thomas growls out holding the said hat out.

"Because it ain't your's!" Keigo all but snarls.

The boy smirks replying cockily, "So what? What are you going to do about it?"

"This," Keigo answers punching the older boy in the nose making him drops the hat.

He quick it up as the other's friends shifts away from him. His dark blue eyes harden and darken to a storm on the ocean as he gazes around waiting to see who else. Glad to see no one else is going to stop him he turns around walking to Ryoma who stares wide eyes.

He calls over his shoulder making the boys quake with fear, "Don't make me tell my daddy to fire your's so scram."

Like little cockroaches they scat making Keigo Atobe grinning like a mad man. Oh he'll tell the truth what happen to his and Ryoma's parents. He places the hat on the black hair ink with greens watching the Topaz eyes sparkle with unshed tears.

"Thank you Kei," the toddler whispers hugging his best friend.

"No problem Ryo." He whispers back walking to their tree sitting down before placing the smaller boy next to him. "Go ahead and sleep. I'll watch over you."

Ryoma nods feeling sleepy falling fast asleep. Keigo watch the small chest go up and down. There is no way he'll trade Ryoma up for anyone. He yawns before curling around Ryoma in a protective manner enjoying the feel of the sun on his skin, the breeze in the air and sounds of life continuing. That's how their parents found the children a few hours later. Ryoma having his small hand holding on to Keigo's light blue shirt while sucking his thumb. Keigo on the other hand have an arm around the small boy's waist along with his head on top of the black-green mess. The light breathing of the two boys' gets their respective parents to smile at the cute sight.


Arashi: I'll admit Atobe may be out of character right now but this is when he's a kid. Ryoma be the same and he's a very happy child that's shy. I hope everyone will enjoy this one-shot and this collection of Royal one shots. Please read and review.
