Chapter 2: Possiblities

* knock* *knock*

"Princess Teru? Are you asleep?". Kurosaki wait for a response.

"Yes, you may come in. Teru gave her usual reply as she covered herself with blankets. It seems like the fever is

starting, every minute passed make it difficult for her to breath.

Kurosaki examined her room as he walked in. it has its elegant wallpaper, a great statue on the middle of her

room, family photos were on the wall. She has everything that a girl could ever wish but why is she so sad?

Nothing can be compared to her once happy angelic face that has turned to be so depressed.

He examined the small frame bedside her gigantic bed. It was a photo of him, teru and prince souichirou, his old

friend and teru's brother. Those were the days that everything was in harmony and peaceful. In the photo, prince

souichirou was laughing at teru's reaction as kurosaki squeezed her cheeks so hard like some kind of cottonballs.

"Why are you here, Kurosaki? " she said, aware of his presence nearby.

head lean to the head board of her bed. "you- perevert! You never changed a bit." She said with her cheeks so

red as tomatoes. But to her surprised, she saw a meal at her bedside table.

"Say AH, your highness". Kurosaki teased as he got a spoonful of soup.

Without hesitation, she followed him. Among anyone in the palace, he's the only who could really understand and

protect her. After all, they've been childhood friend ever since. His family has been serving the royal family from

generations to generations. Both families were so fond of each other. In short, they're perfect for each other.

She found it amazing that a perverted, sarcastic and idiotic guy like kurosaki could make her forget the worries,

pain and suffering that she's experiencing. 'if I were to chose among all my suitors… I would pick you instead,


A/N: Aww… Poor them… well, here it goes. There's more to come.. See you soon! :D
