The Silent Watcher

Disclaimer: Hita no own Ouran! I wish…

Silently watching from the sidelines. Not interfering until she asks. It's how it's always been, that's how it will most likely always be. I've tried to be a little more forward, but it's useless.

"Takashi!" I looked down at my small cousin.

"Yes?" I replied shortly mostly because I am still absorbed in my thoughts.

"I need more cake please?" he asked being all cute for the guests.

I nodded once and stood up and headed towards the kitchenette. I passed her table as I went. I smelled her scent as I walked behind the couch she was sitting on. Mmm, loved the smell of her. It was so enticing and seemed to be like a drug in my mind. I just couldn't get enough.

"Mori-sempai did you say something?" Haruhi asked me.

I shook myself of my thoughts to realize that I must've hummed not only through my mind but through speech. I shook my head and continued on my journey to get Mitsukuni more cake. I went in and closed the door behind me.

I went to one of the cake cabinets and pulled out a tray of chocolate cake with strawberry icing topped with whipped cream, sprinkles, and strawberries. The whole time the female member of the club wouldn't leave my mind.

I heard the door open and close with a soft click. There was a light padding from the small treading feet. I froze slightly, the feet could only belong to two people: Mitsukuni but he wouldn't come in here, that means it must be the second option, Haruhi. My thoughts all halted and my hands started to move automatically. I could hear her by the counter, most likely getting tea for the other tables.

I turned towards the counter and there she was. I slowly walked over to it and reached up into a cupboard and pulled out a serving tray and quickly walked back.

"Hi Mori-sempai." She hummed.

"Hi." I replied shortly slightly shy.

I am always very shy around her, I knew why, but I didn't get how she could make me shy. I don't get shy easily.

"Getting cake for Honey-sempai?" she asked but quickly added, "Again."

I hummed and nodded even though I knew she wasn't looking. She has no clue what she does to me.

"Are you feeling alright? Your shaking." She asked out of pure concern.

I was confused till I looked at my hands, they were indeed shaking. I willed them to stop but they wouldn't. I started to get frustrated so I put down the tray and set the cakes on them that way. I was almost done when Haruhi came over and took the tray.

"Mori-sempai, this is really crappy looking. I'm sorry but let me do it. You're in no state of mind to be arranging cakes on a plate." She told me removing all the cakes that I had put on the plate in a very sloppy manner.

I knew that I was completely embarrassed. I watched her as her delicate, small hands moved all the cakes into a more ordered and fancy looking state. I had to admit it was quite fascinating in a way. I looked at her as she put the tray aside and fixed a small pot of warm hot chocolate and set it on the tray along with a few tea cups. She gestured to me to take the tray and I complied.

"Thank you." I mumbled and left the little kitchenette.

I set the tray down on the table where Mitsukuni quickly indulged into the cakes as I poured him a cup of the hot chocolate.

After hosting hours, Haruhi was about to leave when I decided now was a better chance than ever.

Ta-da! What do ya think? Well it will be continued. Next chapter. So please R&R thank you.
