Ring! Ring!

"Kyoya, it's Tamaki. I know you can hear me, so listen. I have something to ask you, but I'd prefer to do so in person. Could you meet me in a few minutes at..."


Chapter 7

The first floor television at Pension Misuzu hadn't been turned off since the crash Friday night. One could always find someone sitting in the room, watching the T.V., but no one dared to change the channel.

The most recent news report hadn't comforted any of the pension workers or guests. Once Misuzu had gotten word, he swiftly went to work in the kitchen. Cleaning dishes was a much better task than dwelling on the fact that his best friend's daughter had just been discovered dead in the woods of another country under plane wreckage.

Ring! Ring!

"Mei! Get the phone!" he called, an evident catch in his voice.

It better not be any more bad news.


Chapter 8

I can't sleep.

I keep seeing the footage. Its always the same footage. The smoke in the air, the flames bursting from the wreckage.

I can't sleep.

I keep hearing the same words. She's dead, she's dead, she's dead.

I can't sleep, knowing that the two people who did the most for my brother and I are gone, no longer with us.

I can't sleep, but maybe... maybe if I lay in Hikaru's bed I'll calm down. Calm down long enough to rest. Calm down long enough to rest without the nightmares.

Maybe.


One Year Later

"Tamaki, are you sure about this?"

"Yes, Haruhi."

"But-"

"Dear, they're asleep. This is our anniversary. We have the right to spend it how we want."

"Still, I'd prefer a hotel."

"You didn't want to be away from them, remember?"

"Yeah..."

"Haruhi, I'll be on the bed. Come out of the bathroom when you're ready."

"I'm not going to win, am I?"

"Not this time."

...

...

...

"Well, what do you think?"

"The twins have good taste."

"Oh, shut up."

"Haruhi."

"What?"

"I have a strong urge to kiss you."

"Then do it."

...

...

...

"You call that a kiss, Sempai?"

"I'm hurt!"

"And I'm bored."

"Then let me try again."

...

...

...

"Not too bad."

"Not too bad, yourself, Commoner."

"What's with the nickname?"

"What's with the honorific?"

"Oh, I didn't notice."

"Did you now?"

"Uh-huh."

...

...

...

...

...

...

WHAAA! WHAAAAAAAAA!

"Tamaki, Tamaki, stop it. I have to check on Ryoji."

"No you don't."

WHAAA! WHAAA!

"Yes, I do."

"Fine."

...

...

...

...

...

...

...

...

...

Rustle, rustle.

Yawn.

"Haruhi, if you're too tired we can just sleep."

"I'd like that. Sorry about tonight."

"Don't be, Love."

"Hmm?"

"Just rest. I'll be here when you awake."

"You better be."

...

...

...

"Dear?"

"Yeah?"

"Would you say this was better than last year's?"

"Without a doubt."

...

...

...

"Tamaki, can you sleep?"

"No. You?"

"Same... Do you want to try again?"

"Always."

WHAAA! WHAAA!

"On second thought, maybe tomorrow."
