A/N : The Omake took place after chapter 12 'You Are All I Love'.
Master and Pet
Kuon stood still in front of the bathroom door after Kyouko pushed him out of it. Some thoughts were running inside his head. She is having her period. That means… she's not going to get pregnant. He sighed. He didn't know whether he should feel relieved or frustrated. It was true that it would be a problem if he got her pregnant outside the wedlock. Lory and his parents would grill him, and the public would accuse them. Kyouko was a rising actress and he couldn't stand the thought if he was the one who tarnished her image. She already had low self-esteem, plus she only played antagonists. He was afraid that she would have mental breakdown. Part of him wanted it to be realised. He wanted the child. It would be his and Kyouko's child. When he thought again, he realised that with this turn of events, there was no reason to get married. No, I want to marry her. Not because some obligation. I have to tell her again later. I don't want her to think that I'm going to cancel it just because she didn't get pregnant.
He walked up to the bedroom and noticed the messy blanket on his bed. He walked closer and sat on the bed. His eyes caught the blood stain on the bed. He still wanted to curse himself for losing control. I hope I wasn't too rough. I knew she felt good just… It was her first time and I probably hurt her. Not to mention, it was my first in these 6 years. I don't think I did well. Shit! Stop thinking about it, Kuon! he scolded himself when he felt himself getting aroused again. He tried to tidy up the blanket and covered up the blood stain.
When he was arranging the pillows, his eyes caught the crumpled papers under it. He put the pillows away and reached for the papers. He took all of the papers and proceeded to read it. He smiled when he saw his written roles. She should have understood by now, right? He read the other two pieces of papers of hers.
Best friend? Eh? She wanted to be my best friend? So, she only thought so far about me? He sighed. Eh but she said that she wanted to help me. So she wanted to use the role to help me? He read another paper and his eyes widened. What the… Why did she even think of such roles? It seemed like naughty roles for me. I think she meant the real pet.
"Corn… I'm okay now. I'm sorry that…" Kyouko stopped in her track. She had just got out from the bathroom. She was embarrassed that Kuon had to see her in such state. "What happen?" She walked fast to him when she saw his frozen state. She waved her hand before his eyes.
"Kyouko," he called out to her.
"Hmm?" She tilted her head.
"You wrote Master and Pet. What does it mean? Who's going to be the pet?" Kuon asked bluntly.
Kyouko stood still. "Ah, that? Well, I thought it would be interesting… if you were to be the pet," she answered with a smile.
"Eh? Why?" Kuon imagined himself wearing a dog collar with a tag attached. There was a name written on the tag. It was 'Kuon' and it got a cute paw in the background. It got the owner's name as well. He saw Kyouko's name on the tag as the owner. There was a note behind the tag 'please return this puppy to Kyouko at xxxxxxxxxx'. He shuddered at the thought.
Kyouko laughed softly. "Actually, you were the one who gave me that idea."
"Eh? When was it?" He was confused. I gave her the idea? When did I ever say it?
Seeing he was deep in thought and confused over her statement, she decided to show him what she meant. "Now you're Cain. Imagine Setsu is rejecting your gift."
He gave her level 1 puppy dog eyes when he heard it. His 'tail' wagged slowly. Kyouko thought she heard his whining sound.
She had to restrain herself desperately from hugging him. It's called beg, Corn, she said inwardly. "Good now, Setsu is scolding you for buying her expensive gift and asks you to return it all."
He gave her maximum level of puppy dog eyes. The whining sound tripled.
She giggled. I can see there are three of them. "Cain, paw…"
He held out his 'paw'.
"Good now! Shake my hand?"
"Kyouko!" he said suddenly when he regained his senses. He was confused with her sudden orders. He felt himself was pulled into an unknown universe. "What are we doing?"
"No talking. It's an NG. Pet can't talk, Corn. Shake hand!"
Kuon shook hand with her. He was getting dizzy. Is she playing the roles now? So what am I? A pet?
"Turn around and beg." Kyouko giggled more.
Kuon got off the bed and did as she said. Kyouko tried to suppress her laughter. At the same time, she was amused. Even though he was playing pet- a dog to be exact, he played it well.
"Good boy, Cain," Kyouko patted his head and smiled widely.
Kuon seemed thoughtful. He was thinking to get some payback. He barked out loud. Kyouko jerked up. She stared down at him. They were staring at each other. Kuon was thinking to jump her.
Meanwhile, Kyouko was suppressing her laughter. She smiled meaningfully and about to pat his head when she realised that she got carried away. Shoot! I made him act out a dog. No! Demon Lord would kill me. Then she fell flat on the floor. "I am so SORRRYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY…"
Kuon patted her head. "Good girl."
"No… I'm so sorry. I'm such a lowly kouhai. I made my respected senpai act out a dog. Huwaaaaaaaaa" She cried out loud.
"Kyouko, hey… I'm not angry." Kuon pulled her into his arms. "Shush… no crying."
She stopped and looked up at him with teary eyes. "You're not angry?" she sniffed.
"No, I just wanted to know why you wrote the role." Kuon chuckled and kissed her on her forehead. "I thought that you want to play some naughty game. I never expected that you really thought to make me act as a dog. I had a hunch about it actually. What did you plan for the role?"
She blushed red. "Um… you were like a stray puppy sometimes. When you show me your puppy dog eyes, I kind of wanted to hug you. Sometimes you looked lost and I felt I wanted to comfort you. You were really cute when you did that. And I can't resist you."
"Cute? Me?" He laughed softly. "I don't know whether I have to feel flattered or insulted."
Kyouko face changed. She was horrified. "I mean… no, it's…" she stuttered. "I'm sorry."
"No. I'm not angry," he said. "And stop calling me senpai, okay? I'm your boyfriend now… or fiancé?"
She blushed red and buried herself into his chest. She mumbled something unclear.
"It should be you being the pet," Kuon said and patted her head softly. He stroked her hair softly. "Setsu's collar could be your dog collar. I can attach a tag. My name will be written on it."
She stared at him and blinked her eyes. "Um… you want me to be the pet instead? You're angry after all," she wailed desperately.
He laughed. "No, I'm not, but Kyouko… those roles of yours are very naughty in my mind."
"I don't… I'm not…" she tried to protest. "No… It's not like I… kya…" She squeaked when he licked her lips. He grinned at her. She raised her hand to her cheek. "You licked me!"
"CUT! A dog will lick his master's face or lips. It was some kind of greeting. Have you ever thought about that?" He smirked.
She shook her head furiously. "No… I just wanted to pat you… No! I'm… NO!" She turned away her face from him. She blushed red till her ears.
Kuon leaned over to her and licked her ear. She squeaked again. "Kyouko," he said her name with his husky voice.
"Um… your voice…"
"What about my voice?"
"It gave me a weird feeling…" She turned to look at him.
He smiled seductively. "Then… shall we play this game now?" He licked her lips again.
"Corn… we…" she stopped. "I think you got an incoming call," she pointed at the buzzing device on the table beside the bed. Saved by the phone.
Kuon reached for the phone. He flipped open the phone and pressed to answer. "Yes? Eh? Really? I'm sorry. I'll be there as soon as possible. Thank you for the reminder."
"Who is it?" Kyouko asked.
"Miss Woods. She's downstairs. I have to dye my hair back now." He flipped closed his phone.
She stroked his hair. "You have to dye it back?" Kuon caught her hand and she jerked up.
"Yes… sorry. I know you like it so much…" He leaned down and kissed her softly. "Do you want to continue our game?"
She shook her head. "No, I don't think so. It was fun… having you act as a dog though."
He laughed. "Next time, I'll have you act as the pet. I'll give you cat or bunny ears. I will put a tag on your collar and you will be naked on my bed."
She blushed red. "That's…"
"Naughty? Hmm… I have to admit that I have naughty thoughts toward you. You just don't know how desirable you are." He kissed her again. He pulled away and picked her up. He made her sat on the bed.
"Um?" Kyouko stared down at him.
"Before that…" Kuon put a 'paw' on her palm. "Woof…" Kyouko jolted and blinked. "You're my master right? Escort me downstairs?" He gave her puppy dog eyes.
She laughed. "Pet can't talk, Corn. Let's go!"
