AN: Hi Hi Hi, this is my first fan fiction that I have published. I came up with it in the middle of the night yesterday. Lol but yeah. So read and review and I will have the next chapter up by tomorrow. Have a good day DOUCES!
"You should just call him Yuki, I bet he would like that." I whisper in her ear as I watch Yuki sleep. He's so peaceful in his sleep. It's the only time that his worries are not present in his mind. He's so beautiful in his sleep. I look back up at Tohru and I can see her blush spreading as she thinks about my suggestion. She's pretty cute I can see why Yuki likes her. But it's because he likes her that a part of me really hates her. The black part of me wishes she would just go away.
Yuki stirs, he's about to wake up. I lean back against the wall. I sit in my usual pose with one leg bent and one straight. I turn my eyes away from Tohru and I watch Yuki as slowly his own purple eyes fly open.
"Ah! You're awake Yuki-kun!" Tohru says, full of energy. How she is able to keep up that amount of energy I will never be able to fathom.
Yuki sits there almost in shock at hearing her say his first name. "Ah, yes thank you for watching over me Honda-san." he says.
"Ah! I've just remembered, I have to make dinner!" she says standing up.
"Oh well bye Honda-san." Yuki says as she walks out the door. I let out a sigh and close my eyes. I wish he didn't love her. I wish he loved me instead. I can hear him stand up and walk over to me. He kneels down in front of me and I open my eyes again.
His eyes ask a lot of questions, but I wait for him to say them out loud before I answer.
"Haru," he says, and I almost shiver. "Haru what's wrong?" he looks at me with those eyes and I just stare back. It takes me a while to be able to answer.
"Nothing, I'm just thinking." I say knowing full well that that answer will not suffice.
"Things." I say and he sighs, knowing he's not going to get it out of me.
"Haru, there's something I need to tell you. Something I've been wanting to tell you for a while."
"What is it Yuki?" I ask sitting up straighter.
"I-I don't know how to say this." he says as he fidgets nervously. He drops his gaze to the floor.
"Just tell me please." I ask lightly.
"Haru, I.." he gulps, "I love you." I stop breathing. Did I hear him correctly? There is no way he really just said those words. Maybe I'm dreaming. But no he did say those words and he is sitting here in front of me. I can feel my jaw fall open. I can see fear in his eyes that is growing. He thinks I don't love him. But who could not love him?
But I don't let him finish I press my lips against his. He is so soft. I wrap one hand around the back of his neck and pull him closer. I can feel him lean into the kiss. He lets out a quiet moan and I pull away. "Yuki, I love you too. But Tohru, what about Tohru? I thought you loved her."
"Not like this." he says.
"Oh," I say and I bite my lip, I didn't mean to sound that relieved. He chuckles lightly and scoots closer to me. He traces the lines of my face with his soft fingertips.
"Haru, you are so beautiful." I grab his hand with my own and his gaze turns upward.
"Who are you kidding? The beautiful one is you." I say. He leans into me and presses his lips against mine. Softly at first as though timid. He is scared I will pull away and not return again. I grab his neck with my hand and pull him closer. All his timidity goes away.
I let out a soft moan, oh god I love him so much. With him by me no one else matters. I can hear footsteps in the hallway, growing closer and closer.
I push him off of me rather abruptly and he looks shocked and hurt but when the door opens his expression fades. It's Tohru.
"Ah dinner is ready!" she says with that smile on her face. I stand up and reach my hand out to Yuki who grabs on and hoists himself off of the floor.
We walk out into the hall and run into Shigure of all people.
"Eh? Hey you guys what have you been doing in there?" He asks us, his eyes twinkling.
"Nothing you disgusting pervert." which is total bullshit but what else was he supposed to say? Yuki sits down at the table and I sit down across from him. Most people sit next to who they love but I sit across the table from them so I can see their beautiful face.
"Sensei can I spend the night?" I ask Shigure.
His eyes twinkle again. "Haha of course but no sleeping with Tohru-kun, she's all mine." he says winking.
Yuki and Kyou's eyes went very dark. "You nasty pervert." came from both of them.
"Eh? Eh?" Tohru didn't know how to react.
"Oh of course Sensei I would never dream of taking what was yours." I say. Kyou smacks the back of my head.
"Haru, don't encourage him." Yuki says his eyes still glowering darkly. I laugh at him and continue to eat my dinner.
After dinner Yuki and I are both up in his room. I am leaning against the wall like normal and he is standing with his hands on his hips.
"So Yuki, where do we stand?" I ask leaning my dizzy head against the wall.
"Well I don't know. I mean honestly this whole time I've been wondering if you really love me or if you just told me that you did to be nice." he says.
I pull my head off of the wall and my eyesight blurs. God I'm so tired. "Yuki," I say with a sigh, "Come here." I motion him forward. He walks over to me and kneels down in front of me. His eyes are bordering on tears. He really things I don't love him. He's such a lonely kid. I place my hand on his cheek and he leans into my touch.
"Yuki, I love you. I've loved you ever since that day, ever since that day we met. You are so beautiful and precious to me. I will never leave you Yuki. I love you." he closes his eyes and is crying more but I can tell he's not sad. He leans into me and I wrap my arms around him. I hold him close. I love him so much, if I can help it I will never let him go.
