"Kaoru. Kaoru, wake up..."

I woke up to the sound of Kyoya's voice and him shaking me lightly, trying to pull me out of my dreams.

"K-Kyoya?" I called groggily, rubbing my eyes slightly as I sat up.

"Yes Kaoru?" he replied.

"Why did you wake me up?" I asked.

He moved a hand to my hair and started stroking it. "I thought you were having a nightmare. You kept yelling and tossing and turning." he replied.

"Oh...sorry." I replied, face flushing lightly.

"It's no problem." he answered.

I looked down, finally noticing that Kyoya and I were in what someone could call an intimate position.

I was laying on the couch, propped up slightly because I was leaning on my elbow. My knees were bent slightly, my face flushed lightly and eyes adverted in embarrassment. Kyoya was leant over the upper half of my body, stroking my hair affectionately.

"Kaoru." he started, interrupting my thoughts.

I looked up, blinking. "Yes Kyoya sempai?" I asked, giving him my attention.

"Don't get upset with me for what I'm about to do." he answered.

I tilted my head. "What are you-" I started, being cut off by Kyoya's lips meeting mine.

I gasped slightly, eyes widening as he slipped his tongue between my lips.

But despite my shock, I found my arms slipping around his neck, pulling him closer.

I pulled him closer, my tongue gently fighting with his as we started as slow decent down to the couch, with him laying on top of me.

We stayed like that, tongues moving in sync, arms wrapped around one another, in our own world of late night affection.

Kyoya was the one to break the kiss, pecking me briefly after before pulling away.

I opened my eyes and saw him looking at me, a rare but gentle smile on his lips.

I blinked at him, face showing slight confusion.

"Kaoru, I know this is all quite sudden, and that now isn't the best time to bring this up, but I think there's a good chance that I love you." he said.

He spoke clearly and slowly, but they all got muddled together in my mind. The only part that rang bells in my mind were "I love you."

"S-since when?" I asked, not sure how to respond.

He stroked my hair. "For quite a while now. To be more accurate, about a month before Hikaru and Haruhi started dating." he replied.

I searched threw my memory, trying to recalled when Hikaru and Haruhi made it official.

"...7 months." I said, recalling the month and adding one more to it. "You've loved me for 7 months?" I questioned, looking at the slightly older man.

"Approximately." he replied, gentle smile still on his lips.

"W-why haven't you said anything? Why didn't you tell me?" I asked.

"Because, you were still in love with Hikaru. You still are now. But now I have more chance since you've realized something." he replied.

I rubbed my arm nervously. "And what might that be?"

He brushed a stray strand of hair off of my forehead before cupping my cheek in his hand, staring into my eyes.

"That despite how much you want Hikaru, he doesn't want you the same way."

I lowered my eyes, saddened by his words.

But despite how sad they might make me...they're true. The fact of the matter is that Hikaru doesn't love me the way I love him.

"I...I know." I said, finally forcing myself to accept the truth.

"But I can make it better." he said while lifting my face. "I can make the pain go away." he said while pushing a strand of loose hair out of my face.

I looked at him for a second before hesitantly cupping his cheek and leaning closer to him, until our lips finally met.

I smiled lightly as his fingers found their way into my hair and pulled me closer, tongue finding its way into my mouth, gaining dominance over my tongue and mapping out the inside of my mouth.

I gasped into the kiss as one of his hands slipped under my shirt and teased my nipple. He hand was warm and his fingers made precise movements, trying to see what would cause the reaction he like best.

I whimpered in loss as he pulled both his lips and his fingers away. I shuddered lightly as he licked the shell of my ear before speaking.

"Kaoru, will allow me to show you how much I care for you?" he asked before moving his lips to my neck, planting small butterfly kisses on the exposed skin.

I nodded lightly while wrapping my arms around his neck. "Yes Kyoya sempai."

A/N- Last part. I'm considering writing an epilogue to this, but I'm not too sure. Tell me if you'd like an epilogue or not. Hoped you enjoyed!
