I wonder what it is Johan wants to talk to me about. Judai thought as he walked towards the beach under the cloudy sky, the place Johan told him to meet him earlier that day. Why he wanted them to meet so late was beyond him.

When he arrived at his destination, the brunette saw the blunette sitting on a rock, gazing at the sea. "Hi, Johan," he called.

Johan glanced over his shoulder and smiled. "Hello, Judai. You're fashionably late." He patted right next to him, an invitation for his friend to take a seat.

"What is it you wanted to ask?" Judai said as he sat down.

He stared out into the ocean as if deep in thought. "Have you ever had someone special to you, Judai?"

"That's a silly question," Judai laughed. "Of course. I have lots of friends."

"No, I mean like…not just a friend. Or family."

"I don't get your question," stated Judai naively.

"You know…like…a crush or something?" He turned his face away slightly.

"You okay, Johan?" he asked, concerned.

"Yeah, yes. Please answer my question."


"Who?" Johan faced him, the darkness only partially hiding his blush.

"Why does it matter?"

"I just want to know!"

Now was Judai's turn to look away. "Look, you…wouldn't even know hi-r. Her. You wouldn't know her so it doesn't matter. Why are asking?"

"I-I'm just curious…Wait, were you about to say him?" He tilted his head and blinked his beautiful green eyes.

"Um, no!"

Johan smiled. "Yeah you were."

"What would you make of it if did?" He nervously scratched the back of his neck.

"I would say…'that's okay. I…"

"You're what?"

"Nothing!" The two both dropped it.

Finally, Judai coughed, "Awkward silence!"

Johan laughed. "Sorry."

"Anything else you want to talk about?" asked Judai, ready to stand up.

"Um…No, you can go now." Since Johan knew that's what he really wanted to know.

"Okay." He stood up. "Aren't you coming?"

"Naw. I wanna stay here for awhile. The moon's finally coming out." Johan gazed up at the sky.

He looked at Johan's face, now beautifully lighted by the moonlight and sat back down. "I think I'll stick around too," he decided.


"It's a nice night. Besides, wouldn't you like company?"

"I would love for you to keep me company." He blushed, though now under the moonlight, Judai could clearly see it. It made him blush as well.

After another less awkward silence, Johan got the courage to say, "Isn't this a little…romantic? You know, being on the beach under the moonlight like this?"

"I guess it is." His blush deepened.

"So about what I asked earlier…"

"I already told you. There's this one guy…"

"So it is a guy?" He sounded way more excited than he should have.

"Yeah…I also lied about you not knowing him…"

"Who? Jun?"





"Ew no. He's like a brother."

"Um, Ryo?"

"No. I'll give you one more guess."

With slight hesitation, he muttered, "Me?"

"Yes!" He leaned on his shoulder. Despite his outwardly confident attitude, his face burned and his stomach turned.

Johan was speechless. It was exactly what he wanted to hear that night, his whole reason for calling him out there, but he never expected it.

"Johan? Are you angry…?" This is what he was afraid of. Rejection.

Suddenly he felt warm lips upon his, Johan's wordless response. The two seemed to melt each other as the kiss deepened, both with arms wrapped around the other. The need for oxygen arouse a little too soon for their liking.

"I think I love you," Johan said sweetly, almost in a whisper.

"I know I love you."

The couple dove back together for another kiss.
